[ECHOES FROM THE MINES. 1 Continued Improvement of the Eureka Consolidated. THE LATEST OFFICIAL LETTERS. EASTKItV N KVA III III I.I.IOX YIKI.II. During a season of unusual depression of stock values, and tho gloomy outlook that charactei ized the nnrkot tit tho timo of our last review, it is a relief to turn to our own district and note tho contrast. Not b it that wo have felt the pressure, for Eurekans are human, and speculate in the rise and fall of Ophir and the bonanzas, as well us outside barbarians: but there was consolation to this class in the sharp reaction in those stocks during tho woek. Of our own proper tier, the enhanced value consequent on re cent developments havo boon well sustained, and all reports, official and otherwise, tend to show that they are worthy of tho abiding faith of tho investors. Them is no doubt thut the strike in the Eureka Consolidated is a very important one, not only in tho size o' the ore body, but also of the unusually high grade and large percentage of precious metals carried. There are other important developments in mines in the immediate neighborhood, but wo do not feel justified in attompting to discrib) them until our infor mation as to extent is more definite. Xuby Hill, however, is not going to carry off all the honors, as the Hamburg, Atlas, Connolly and others, will contribute their sharo of bullion to the gross production, and wo pro diet that the coming summer will witness more furnaces in operation and a larger force of inen employed than any rrovious season. Tho suspension of work at th? Richmond is only temporary, and tho furnaces will re sume on .Monday, the 2$th inst, Furnaces and machinery will wear out. and must be re paired ami renewed. There has been an un interrupted campaign of t ight months at tho works, and it is tho intention of the company to shut down on the first of .March lor a pe riod of sixty days, during which timo many improvements will bo added, the furnaces re paired and another ono uddod to the present mi m ber. The storm has temporarily checked the dolivory of charcoal, tho roads having been in such bud order that hauling whs impossi ble. i ho narrow-gaugo has managed to keep its road in running order, and has brought in three car-loads daily, all of which haa gone to the Eureka Consolidated. I ho supply of small lots of ore from Pros pect Mountain and oilier localities, that, while ►mall in detail, aggregate quite a re spectable amount, has been cut off by the furious storm that closed the roads and cov ered tho mountains with snow. This is es sentially u poor nan’s camp, and if a skilled miner does not foci like limiting his labor to a statod price, ho has many opportunities to employ his practical knowledge to his advan tage. To many men tho elements of chance and uncertainties of mining luck have n charm that overbalances the sure but humdrum in come from daily wages. To those rustless spirits tho field is boundloss. The hills and mountains aro filled with ore. waiting tho miner’s pick and shovel, and the furnaces provide a ready mar*- et for all valuable ore nrourht to them. Although ull who engage in this branch of mining do not draw n prize, yet it i« rare that well directed anil intelligent work i* not roinunoraud, and in maty cases small fortunes have been tho result. During the coming summer this branch of mining will be especially active, and materially swell the gross bullion product of tho district. With tho above general reference to oar mining district, we pais to tho condition of individual mines. Illrh itiotul. Tho suponsion of work at the furaaeos has I nocessitat'd tho (li*<'hnrfo of a largo forco of, miners, but we understand that they will only bo idle fra short time, probably until the engine ii repaired, whun active opera tions will ugiin commence. All parts of tho mine are looking well, and ore was extracted to the amount ot three hundred tons daily up to last Wednesday, when the aecumulations • t the dump forbid further hoisting. Mnna j<*r Frobort has been absent on a visit to .San Francisco, but will return in a few days. 1 ho following is the latest report of Super intendent Rickard to the Lundon office: “Richmond, HM to#: the usual weekly tele gram giv«*s tho week’s run at $.V>,UOO. *1 he refinery this week has produced doro bars to the value of $O.MW. The manager this wo k reports that but little has boon done oithor in tho *0u or 700 drifts, the chief poi ts of in t'-roM being the junction of the *iOU drift with the No. 2 winze, and the fact that the en l ot the drift is still in ore, but that it had unex pectedly nsrrowod te threw feet wide; while above, in the drift started -"*S feet above the tiO-ufoot level, anti dr ven nearly *-NH» feet in ora horizontally, tho breadth of the mass has now been ascertained to be fJO foot and the ore of “very good quality.” 'J he new UO-in. boiler is fixed and at work. Tho weather is reported to be tine, and tho roads in good condition. Tho upproaebieg coinplo ion ol the now line to the mine will render the state ot tho ordinary roads of less moment in fu ture. Tho new hvdrocyclo furnace was lor wardod from San Franciice Home four weeks since, and will bo, doubtless, soon available. I he success of the alteration in the form of the old stone furnaces on the principle sug fostod by Mr. Frobert, that of an abrupten argomont opposite tho tuyeres, has sur passed all expectations, the sand furnaces, which in old times seldom lasted over three months, having now run suvon, and being still in good order. KurrUis Cunsollilaleil. The development of the oro body justifies tho glowing roporls of tho rocont strike, l'rom the sixth lovel to tho tonth oro is found, and the winzes, cross-cut* and upraises show that it is as line a bodyof oro us wn« ever met with in the mine. Hotter still, it is of an unusually high grade and line smelting qual ity. Tbo furnace lias been working admira bly during tbo week. IIridnally intended for a reducing capacity of fifty tons per day, it bus averaged sovonty. A leatura of tho Consolidated furnaces is the small quantity ol charcoal used to reduce a ton of oro. 'V c aro informed that loss than twentv-fivo bushels is the average, and smelters will agree with us that it is a fine showing ia this respect. I lie furnace has produced over 1,000 burs ol crude bullion for the seven days’run. averaging la) pounds per bar. and a daily yield ot b-» tons. By tbo courtesy of Superintendent lJonnelly. wo give our roidirs tho co ituuts of tho ulii cial luttar forwarded yo*torduy: Elrhka, January 27. Work has continued unintarruptedly at the min« during tha woek. Trains on tho rail road arc limning regularly again and dumps all cleaned up.

Tho closing down of tho furnaces in the fall was attended by no reduction of tho working force at tho mine, but advantage was taken of the suspension to sink a now shaft, erect hoisting wo kr, and put the nnno in g »od order. All this has been done, and tliero is no mine in the dis tri'tin better shape to-day than the Atlas. 1 he work of completing the timbering o‘ tho main shart has been going on throughout the wo -k. lli-rc is plenty of ore in the mine; in fact the developments are so largo that the present works of tho company are not suf- : tici**nt to ax its producing resources, and | will necessitate the building of more fur naces to assist in tho reduction.

Deny it as tliev may, there are but few mortals but what have a grain of superstition in their composition. It may be that you, reader, are one of those who are not infallible in this re gard, hut we will wager a trille that it is with a feeling of inward satisfaction that you view the moon over yottr right shoulder, and that you congratu late yourself at the auspicious augury. Who of us but hesitates before start ing on a journey? We have a friend who lias a mortal terror of drawing on his left boot first, solemnly alliriu iug that dire misfortune would be bis lot for that day it that incident should occur. A sensible little woman of our ac quaintance says that in case she should perform her ablutions in water used by her husbatfd, domestic broils would ensue. To avert the matrimonial quarrel it is only necessary to eject saliva intotho mutual lavatory. What a pity that all the little tempers that jar the matrimonial state were not so easily avoided. If you spill the salt cellar, throw a pinch over the shoulder and you will avoid the trouble which that accident entails. Three candles burning simultaneously in a room predict the death of a member of the family. Whether this extends to kero sene and gas, we are unable to say, and our researches throw no light on the subject. A strange cat that inti mates an intention of making your house her homo, should be harbored and fed, as it is a precursor of good fortune. Dreams are fer tile in omens, and open tip a range of superstitions too vast to delve into. There is still another class of beliefs that trench on the materia mediea, in cluding specifics against certain dis eases, and are evidently a relic of pop ular faith in charms and amulets. A buckeye carried in the pocket is a rem edy for hemorrhoids. While suffering from tiie agony of a decayed tooth, a gentleman kindly informed us that if we would trim our uails ou Friday we would find relief, stoutly averring that it cured him when all other rem edies failed. The most popular rem edy of the day is the potatoe. What constitutes the peculiar virtues of the succulent vegetable is beyond onr ken, hut as a specific for rheumatic affections it works like a charm. Every other male biped in Eureka carries one ill bis pock et, and will discant for hours to the unbeliever as to its peculiar vir tues, impressing on the listener the fact that as it withered and dried up his limbs became suppleand his health restored. Among the sporting class a species of voudoo worship obtains, the word popularly rendered ‘•hoo doo,” and by some subtle means a baleful influence is exercised by one individual over another. The act of sitting in close proximity, or placing the loot on the round of the gambler’s chair communicates this charm, and a series of inferior hands at cards, or a had run of luck at the faro table pro duces a similar result. Wo have know n gamblers to leave a table and seek a negro woman whom they paid to charm them to good luck once more. We might pursue the subject ad in finitum, but will not tire the reader further. All the shove superstitions and beliefs we have no doubt have come within the range of evory one’s knowledge. The Ilulilose l Senator. Henry Casey, the tonsorial artist at the Corner, has followed his profession all over the United States, and in his career has mot and shaved numerous distinguished individuals. While en gaged in the barber shop attached to the St. Charles Hotel, in Now Orleans, the notorious Senator Pinchbeck was a tellow workman in the same estab lishment, and was noted among his chums as a smart, unscrupulous fel low, and withal a No. 1 poker player. His scheming brain was occupied at that time by various projects, such as blackmailing Creole girls, roping strangers to the gambling hells, and ringing in cold decks on his associates. The close of the war, and the conse quent chaotic, state of political affairs in Louisiana, gave him a wider field for the display of bis talents, an op portunity he was not slow to take ad vantage of. Mr. Casey’s reminiscences of the distinguished “ man and broth er” are, in the light of his career, in teresting, although not very flattering to the subject of them. llurglnrs About. An attempt was made last night by one or more burglars to rob the Ot tawa Hotel, on South Main street, kept by Johnny Allen. Two holes were bored in the window for the pur pose of effecting an entrance by reach ing the fastenings of the window. The noise made by the burglars alarmed the inmates of the bouse and the house-breakers lied before they could be caught or recognized. That por tion of the town is entirely unpro tected and an officer should he detailed for the benefit of the taxpayers of that vicinity, it would be well to keep a a sharp lookout now, as thore is a class of men in the town that are "dead on the steal.” Keep a shotgun handy also, for it is a good thing to have in tho house just now. Tin; It II BY MININO COMPANY. The London Standard of the 1st in stant contains the following regarding the Ruby Consolidated suit: At die Mansion House, on Satur day, Alderman Sir Andrew Lusk, M. I’., took occasion — addressing Mr. (ire-ham, the chief clerk at tlie Jus tice room—to refer to the Ruby mine case, which was s in for trial more than two years ago, and since that time he had never heard any thing more of it. Those who prose cuted did not know where or when | justice would be done. It made him, Sir Andrew, think that they should cave a public prosecutor after all. Some of tho worst eases were brought to tile Mansion House for investigation from time to lime, and were carefully investigated. In the result they were sent to the Court of Queen’s liench, and nothing more was heard of them. He thought the ma'ter should lie inquired into. Mr. Gresham, tlie chief clerk, in re ply, said in that ease a gentleman connected with it called on him early in November last in reference to the delay, and lie, Mr. Cresliain, referred him to the Secretary of Slate. The applicant, on tho 9th of November, addressed a communication to Mr. Cross on the subject, stating that in 1874 Mr. Askew was bound over at the Mansion House to prosecute one Edward Herzburg Hartmont and oth ers for fraudin bringing out the Ruby Consolidated Mining Co. (limited). The case, as far as the writer knew, had, up till then, not been tried, and be ing a large shareholder in the com pany lie begged to draw the attention of tiie Home Secretary to the above mentioned fact, and requested to be informed why the prosecution had not been continued. To that request lie received the subjoined reply: “Whitehall, Nov. 18, 1870: Sir: I am desired by the Secretary of State to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 9th inst.. respecting the prosecution of Edward H. Hartmont and others for fraud in connection with the Ruby Consolidated Mining Company (limited), and to acquaint you that Mr. Cross is not in posses sion of any information on tlio sub ject.” Mr. (ires lift in reminded Mir Andrew Lusk that in the case in question, that of the Ruby mine, Mr. Askew had been bound over to pros ecute in the sum of £2000. Notwith standing that he appeared to have re mained dormant in the matter, and the solicitor in the case seemed to have retir’d from it, Sir Andrew Lusk said the case on its'merits was a very plain one, as it came out in evidence, and he thought the law, as applicable to it, was equally plain. Notwithstanding all that a point of law had been raised and left unsettled. The consequence was that justice had altogether miscarried, and he knew not who was to blame. A Celestial Ceremony. Yesterday afternoon, at the “Fang ge Tang” or Chinese Joss House, a peculiar and no doubt to the moon eyed heathens a very interesting cere mony took place. It was an offering to the idols that are enthroned in the building, and a custom indulged in hy manv w hen about to leave ibis country for their native land. Ah Wong, alter diligent toil for twelve years in the while man’s country, has amassed suf ficient lucre to return to the shade of the parental vine and fig tree; and for a safe and prosperous voyage over the briny deep, and that his parents may lie permitted to retain the “vital spark,” was the offering yesterday made. A fusilade of fire-crackers and bombs opened the performance, followed by music discoursed by a Chiuese orches tra. For fear the gods would over look him, All Wong iiad a large panel signboard with his name gaudily painted and gold-leafed thereon, made in Man Francisco and forwarded to him. This was decorated with red flannel, and now occupies a conspicu ous position in view of the idols. An additional offering of two massive bo quets of artificial flowers were also placed in close proximity of Hie boss Joss, and All Wong is happy in the thought that whatever may befall his fellow-travelers lie will be delivered safe and dry on the slmros of the east ern Hemisphere. After the offering was made a banquet was provided by All Wong for his immediate friends, apparently embracing every China man in the district, the most conspic uous object on the table being an im mense roasted hog. It was “high jinks” for a score of cadaverous look ing Celestials, who eat as though they had endured a week’s fast for this special occasion. None of the women were allowed in the Joss-house during the ceremony and banquet, the Chi nese regarding their presence on such nil occasion as an ill omen. A Drenin. A Eurekan dreamed that he died and wont straight to the spirit world. On reaching his destination lie realized that the aspect of the place was differ ent from what his conduct during life had led him to expect. The climate was temperate, and no smell of brim stone permeated the air. On the con trary, the groves and fields were de lightful; flowers bloomed in profusion, and the songs of birds made the air musical; fruits of all varieties hung from the branches of the trees, and graceful animals bounded in sportive play on every side. Wandering along a well-beaten path, he finally brought ii]) in front of a building that loooked very familiar to him, and if he had been back on earth he would not have hesitated to have pronounced it a sa loon. Entering, helound himself in a well-ordered bar, the bottles filled with liquor and labeled brandy, whisky, etc. Here was a chance to quench a thirst that had been torment ing him; lie grasped a bottle, and smelled tho contents; tho aroma of genuine bourbon greeted his nostrils, and congratulating himself on his good luck, Unapplied it to his lips, hut ains, not a drop came forth, and such was the case with all of them. The situation dawned on his brain, and with a despairing glance at the decan ters he remarked, “well, this i.t hell!" Cleaning I lie (tools. Tho thaw yesterday brought prop erty ow ners to tho house roofs in a hurry. Snow water runs through an ordinary roof quicker than quicksilver through a buckskin sack, and the shovelers had to do quick work yes Horday to save the ceilings from a hew I stylo of frescoing. Don’t Come to Knrckn. Within tho past few days a number of miners have arrived in town from Virginia City searching for work. To those who are expecting to come, wo say, do not do so. Many of tho miners hero wlm have lived in Eureka for years are now out of work, and it will be weeks, under tiro most favorilile auspices, beiore one half of the now idle men can secure employment. The mines of Ea-tern Nevada arc dif ferent from those of the Comstock: they do not require near tlie working forces, and to day, for every vacancy til at occurs there arc a dozen applicants. We say this to tho workingmen in all kindness, and our advice, if heeded, will save many bitter disappointments, 'l'lie supply of labor more than equals the demand at the best, of times, and a new comer stands a much less show to obtain work than those who have lived here for a long time. Again we say: Do not come to Eureka. , An Oltl Acquaintance. We yesterday had the pleasure of meeting one of the pioneers of Eureka, J. .T. Dunne, who lias just returned from Londonand is on his way to Cali fornia, where he will superintend a mine for an English company. Mr. Dunne has been in London for several years engaged in mining enterprises, aud, returning to former scenes, could not overlook the old stamping ground on his western trip. He is well pleased with the advancement made by our town during his absence, and is confi dent that the Ease llange will yet as tonish the world with its bullion pro duct. Nick sml Mnrving. D. Newman, a paper banger, late of Pioche, is l3'ing at the California lodging-house in a helpless condition, suffering from chronic rheumatism, lie has had hut two meals in three days, and is utterly without means or friends to help him. His condition was discovered last night and steps will be taken to-day to have him conveyed to the County Hospital. This is a sad ease, and "for the credit of Eureka do not let is be said tiiere is a fellow being starving in our midst. Well Nulslled. The Indians appear well satisfied with tlie genial turn tho weather has taken. Congregating on a corner they while the hours away playing cards until an inward monitor tells them that something more tangible is need ed, and flocking to the back doors of restaurants they raid the cold grub barrel or hunt a job to cut enough wood to appease the cravings of hun ger. ___ Trial or Tom Kelly. The Reno Journal says: The Kelly murder trial continues to excite great interest, ami the District Court-room is crowded with spectators. All the wit nesses oil the part of the Slate have been examined, and a few on the part of the defense. Maxes To-day. The Pioche and Hamilton stage will leave this morning. The Sunday run is made to make up time and rear range the schedule, which was knocked into a cocked-hat during the late storm. A stage will also arrive this evening from these places. Did Not Arrive. The name of Rev. S. Ciothers, who was to preach to-day at the Presby terian Church, does not appear in the list of arrivals, and we presume the gentleman has been detained on the road; consequently, no servioe will be held at that church to-day. From Pioche. Three of the children of Frank Wheeler, of Pioche, arrived by last night's stage from Pioche. The boys reoentl3’ had the sad misfortune of losing a beloved mother, and now are on their way to California. Mill Alive. From parties arriving from Tybo yesterday, we are informed that Je rome Davidovich, who was shot by Constable Robinson during a dance house row, was still alive.
