Sir. Jas. tlergas, an old resident of
Hamilton, a number of whose well
written letter* have heretofore appear
ed iit theSt-.NTlNKl.. gives a very gloomy
account of the existing state of affairs
in that Eldorado. Ilosays, “that with
out any circumloction the outlook is
very blue. It is, without exaggeration,
a poverty stricken country. Tbuquartz,
except in very few cases, will not pay,
nor the cement either, and as regards
placer mines, there never was any out
side of De-.ilwood that were worth
working.” lie add-: “I do not know

The Lead Market.
At present there is no favorable turn
in this metal, or any indication of the
downward tendency being arrested; tin
the contrary, the over supply continues
to exercise a marked depreciatingeffecl
upon the market. The fall, however,
has already been very 'considerable,
and it is thought by some, says the
Mining Record, that the reduction
must shortly cause several mines to
close, ami that the production will con
sequently ha diminished; but as yet
there is no diminution, and according
to the last Hoard of Trade returns the
imports for the lirst quarter of this
year amounts to 412,(itW uwts., against
ytt.NM cwts., in the corresponding pe
riod of 1 , whereas the exports show
no increase whatever, it is undoubt
edly in the interest of consumers to
have low prices, and possibly sellers,
too, for a tune, as low prices must nat
urally tend to tie expansion of trade,
and it should lie the endeavor of pro
ducers to supply clieiply rather than
to reduce production for the mere sake
of upholding prices. If the former
prices are not realizable, which is rare
ly the case w ith any business just now,
tlie deficiency should he made by ef
fecting larger sales, and get it out ot
quantity in place of price. The mar
ket is lower than it has been for the
last quarter of a century, and the la

pairs, musing alterations, and com
mencing of fresh work will at once he

Written I y One Who lias Hern mere.
If the reader is the unfortunate head
of a family, and has experienced the
miseries that inevitably follow in the
train ol a removal from one residence
to another, we aro satisfied that this
item will touch a chord of sympathy
in bis heart. We have moved; hence
we are moved to discourse on the sub
ject. Moving is a sad day. The fact
lias long been knowii, hut it remains
for us to explain why. It is not because
the afleclions of men and women have
so twined themselves about the roof
tree beneath which domestic bliss lias
been enjoyed for twelve months that
they can not be torn aw ay without an
guish. Trees leave every spring with
out regret, and w hy should not ro it
trees, as well as others, be left w ithout
regret? it is not that families aro
about to entrust their happiness to an
untried landlord, for there is not a
landlord who has not in on repeatedly
and very sorely tried. And besides,
from this danger ■ it re is always a w av
of release l>v yielding to the mcr, used
demands of the old landlord. It is
not because moving is expensive, for
in many cases it is cheaper to move
than to pay the April rent. It is not
because furniture is damaged by being
moved, for all expressmen move fur
niture with care; that fact they lake
care to tell you. Nor is it because of the
trouble involved in moving, lor it is
no more trouble to move than to clean
house, and no sane woman would
clean the house she was about to move
out of. No, not one of tlie^e alleged
reasons lor the objectionableness of
moving day is the correct one. The
philosopher of the Skntinkl may
have claimed too much for himself in
intimating that he had discovered the
true reason. In her heart every wo
man wiio ever moved must lie hall
ciiMsciiiiis of idle reason. lint she
wouldn’t admit it to tier best friend.
Site won’t admit it to herself, when
she can help it. Much of the fretting
and scolding, and most of the winged
words uttered on May day, are but de
vices to banish Jrom the mind the pain
ful truth, and exelu It* the thought that
pierces the soul of the unfortunate
woman. But the truth is like Ban
quo’s ghost. It will not down. It
shakes its gory locks at every woman
who has a feminine sensitiveness of
soul, and who is compelled by circum
stances, whatever they may be, to
Like all great truths, this one is sim

every one will protest that be or she.
as ttie sex may be, always knew it, and
that it isn’t worth putting ill tho news
Ttie reason why moving day is
dreaded above all other days of the
year, is that the very worst possible
use that furniture can be put to is to till
an express wagon, or obstruct a side
walk. Under no oilier circumstances
does good furniture look so poor, and
poor furniture look so utterly despica
ble. No matter how well furniture
looked in the store, or in its appropri
ate place in the house, on a sidewalk or
in an expr. ss wagon it undergoes sud
den and vast depreciation. If every
body moved, this would not be a set i
ous matter; but everybody doesn’t
move, and the people who don’t move
gather at their windows to gloat tlieir
eyes on the wretched mass of stuff
which tlieir neighbors who do move
have dignified by ttie name of furni
ture. It is this that fills a woman’s
soul with bitterness at the thought of
moving. The pretty articles that made
her parlor not only comfortable, but
attractive and, perhaps, elegant,appear
to the people across the street, then
piled chaotically on a wagon, like the
unsold remnants from a second hand
auctou room. The pretty carpet, ttie
selection of which reflected credit on
the cultivated taste of tho woman who
moves, when done up in a wad with
the wrong side out, looks no better
than ttie ragged old carpet. All the
ornaments are, of course, packedaway
out of sight. Every object of furni
ture presents to the public Us back or
underside. There is no opportunity in
packing an express wagon to manifest
that taste which a woman readily man
ifests in arranging tfie same furniture
in a room. Tho result of all this is that
every woman who moves is deeply
mortified at the spectacle her house
hold goods make when in transit, and
it adds gall loan already bitter draught
to know that all tho old neighbors and
all tlie new ones are elevating tln-ir
noses as far as tlie construction of that
organ will permit, at the pitiable array
of tables, chairs, and bedsteads with
which site I as been keeping house.
This it is that makes moving day a day
of wrath, a dreadful day, and moving
the most tr>ing ordeal that a woman’s
self-respect can be called on to pass

A tirwililerril Shareholder.
A complaining shareholder airs bia
grievances in the London Mining Jour
nal as follows:
‘■I observe a very wholesome warn
ing that you give to Iho sliareholders
in base bullion American mines; and
in the ease of the Richmond Company,
whose ‘refinery ’ returns are gradually
diminishing, is it not all the more nec
essary that bunti fiitc stockholders
should know what the weekly return
of so much in the gross is represented
by? This company claims to be pro
ducing some $90,000 to $100,000 per
week from ore smelted. The relinery
puts out from $40,000 to $50,000 only,
taking the figures advertised as cor
rect. II, as the case is stated, the lead
is practically not worth shipping, then
the whole cost of mining, smelting,
etc., has to fall upon the refinery. If
this lie so, the stockholders will some
day have a very unpleasant awakening
from a dream that they have lately
been indulging in. A little candorand
explanation of these matters on the
part of the management wool i be of
much advantage to the bona title stock
lie evidently imagines that the dis
crepancy between the returns of the
furnaces and the refinery is a total
loss, not knowing that the capacity of
the latter is not sufUcient to handle the
crude bullion yield. It he could glance
at the stacks of bullion accumulated in
and around the works, he might possi
bly he content to possess his soul in
peaee, and not rush into print with a
communication that proves him to be
an ass.
Xarrow Carniir.
Jack Perry, the old time whip, butat
present engaged at the Consolidated
mine, loading the ore cars, had a very
narrow escape from death yesterday.
He was working in the ore bin when
his foot slipped, one leg going down
the abate. The jar of the fall shook
an immense amount of dirt, burying
him imdernealh. Fortunately the men
below witnessed the aceideut, and
hastened to the rescue. All there was
to 1)6 seen of poor Jack was a hand,
and that gave them a clue to his local
ity'. They worked like Trojans to ex
tricate him, anil succeeded in doing it
just in time to save him from suffoca
tion. He was very weak and com
pletely exhauted when taken out, but
recovered shortly. No bones were
hrokeu, although he was severely
bruised, and when we met him last
evening, smelt strongly of arnica.
Jack is a veteran stage driver, and we
are indebted to him for many a first
class item, but we do not care to have
him killed just to furnish us with an
other one, hence we congratulate him
ou his escape.
The Circus.
The circus will arrive to-night, and
two performances will be given to
morrow'. The Alta, speaking of its
appearance in San Francisco, say's:
The procession of Forepatigh’s circus
and menagerie in our city yesterday
was the grandest street pageant ever
made In tltisoity\ The gilded chariots,
shining like gold; the gaily capari
soned horses; the helmeted cavalcade
of horsemen, glittering in spangles;
and the banners, ail made the most
gorgeous procession one could well
expect to see—dazzling to the eye and
bewildering to the senses. The pro
cession was witnessed by the largest
crowd of people that lias ever been
called out on a like occasion in San
Francisco. The tents, mammoth in
proportions, were crowded both in the
the alternoon and evening, several
special trains bringing crowds of people
from neighboring towns. The menag
erie comprises the largest and best col
lection of animals that has ever been
exhibited on the Pacific Coast, and the
circus performance was certainly never

An old miner, taking a view of the
rear of It. Sadler <fe Co’s store, would
imagine that he had found the en
trance to a first ela-s mine. A large,
roomy underground passage-way leads
from the establishment, a distance of
fifty feet, to an immense warehouse
now being built on Monroe street.
This latter has been excavated out of
lie solid ground, and it will be walled
up with solid masonry. The roof will
be on a level with Monroe street, and
tlie floor with Main street. Goods
landed at the front door of ths estab
lishment can be run through into tlie
warehouse without trouble or delay.
Mr. Sadler is making these improve
ments in order to obtain more room,
and during bis absence at San Fran
cisco will purchase an immense stock
of first-class merchandise, one ol the
largest ever brought to Eureka. Look
out for its arrival.
Tnken wir by Hie Ear.
A boisterous individual, loaded up
with kill-devil whisky, took a contract
to run the town last night. His first
act was the attempt to batter down
I Hank Knight’s saloon with theJack
| son House chairs. Failing iti bringing
the building to tlie ground with these
mi silos, he announced himself as a
tighter from the lower regions, and
just begged for somebody worthy of
his metal to t ickle him. Officer McKee
accepted tlie challenge, took the lellow
tiy tlie ear, and walked him into jail,
where lie now quietly reposes. A
charge of disturbing the peace was
entered against him, and lie will tell
Justice Cromer all about it to morrow,
i lie was a member of the John Doe
■ longeron*.
The custom obtains to a great ex
tent in this community, of throwing
I their old rubbish in ths streets, and
‘ then setting fire to it. One of thest
I windy nights, when our town is burned
1 down, somebody will know whr.1
eau-ed tlie conflagration. There was a
case in puint on Munroe street yester
