Telegraphic advices were received here yesterday from official sources in San Fran cisco, announcing the absolute sale and transfer of the K K mine to the Eureka Consolidated Mining Company. The an nouncement caused quite a breeze in min ing and business circles, and when the Sentinel's extra was issued containing the facts the news was eagerly discussed by knots of men in all parts of town. The consideration mentioned is $250,000 cash for the entire property of the K K Com pany, including the hoisting works and all and everything pertaining to the mine. There are 50,000 shares represented in the K K Company. The purchase price of $250,000 for the whole property is therefore equal to $5 per share for the stock. This sum per share, we understand, will bo paid to outside shareholders. Several parties in Eureka have been holders of the stock for years. The rate at which tho mine has been sold will hardly put them evon. The territory purchased 1* not very ex tensive on the snrface, though the lines of tho K K run in a way that will nearly double the Eureka’s ground on the dip of the lode at a depth of 2,000 feet, Tho pur chase will also shut off all law suits in the future. The Eureka now has compromise lines at both ends. The dividing lino be tween tho K K and Phenix was established by compromise, and the Eureka of course now reaches over to this point. On the other end the line between the Eureka and Richmond has been held as valid by the courts so far as tested. The purchase like wise gives the Eureka tho much-needed ground for tho big shaft. This great work, it is now understood, will be inaugurated without further delay. The price paid for the ground is regarded by mining men here as very low. The K K, however, was quite anxious to sell at the figures. How the finances of the Eureka Con. are to be affected by the transaction is a matter chiefly concerning the shareholders. The Company had been carrying over about $400,000 for the purposes of tho new shaft. The payment of $250,000 for the K K ground, together with legal and other in cidental expenses, will draw pretty heavily on the reserve fund. The Sentinel be lieves, however, that the earnings of the mine will be amplo to defray tlio current running expenses and equip and sirik tho new shaft. The chief boom for the district in this business comes in with the confidence dis played by the Eureka Consolidated in pay ing a quarter of a million for a strip of adjoining territory. If one of the oldest companies in the district, familiar with all the ins and onts of mining on the great Ruby Hill lode, has the nerve to invest so large a sum in additional ground, what de gree of confidence should the tians&ction impart to outsiders who have hitherto doubted the wealth and permanency of our mines. In this view, and with tho cer tainty that we are at last to have the long talked of deep shaft, the transfer is es pecially important and beneficial to the community and the mining industry. In all other respects it were better that the K K did notecase to exist. The transfer of the property will for mally take place this morning. Whether Superintendent . Read will immediately close down the K K had not been deter mined at latest accounts. or IKTERENT TO HIKERS. TlieTiinc H hen Annul Anenneat Work Shall Be Performed. Prior to tlie passage by Congress of what is known as the mining law of 1862, the miners of the several districts made rules and regulations for locating, recording and doing assessment work on the mines of the respective districts. The Congressional law made it obligatory on all mine-owners to perform a certain amount of labor an nually ou each claim located, hut omitted to state when the assessment year began. Tliis caused disputes among miners and re sulted in litigation, when the mines in dis pute were supposed to he valuable. Some held that on claims located prior to the passage of the Act of 1862, tho assessment year expired on the 31st day of December of each year, and that on claims located since the passage of that Act, the year ex pired twelve months from the date of their location. The law of Congress specified no particular time when the claim should be recorded or work done. Now, all disputes as to the time the as sessment year ends are settled by an amend ment to Section 2,824 of the Revised Stat utes of the United States. That amend ment provides, " That the period within which the work required to be done annu ally on all nnpatented mineral claims shall commence on the 1st day of January suc ceeding tho date of location of such claim, and this section shall apply to all claims located since the 10th day of May, A. D. 1872.” Tho amendment evidently means that if a mining claim is located at any time after tho 1st of January of each year, the locators have until the l'at of January, following, to make the expenditure on tho claim required by the Act of 1862. The local laws of many miniug districts require a certain amount of work to be done on newly located claims within thirty or sixty days from the date of location, and prob ably the Courts will have to determine whether such laws are in conflict with the Act just passed by Congress. The law of Congress, however, being tho supreme au thority would seem to take precedence over any mere local regulation. The above explantion is given in answer to nu merous inquiries addressed to this office by miners and mining men. The 4‘omiplluteuliary Benefit. The citizens of Eureka, with their aocus tomed liberality, have come forward at the proper moment, and tendered a compli mentary benefit to the members of tho late Captain Jack Combination, who have been left in this city by their managers without salaries or the means of reaohing home. Saturday night is chosen for the occasion, and the company, with the kind assistance of a few of our amateurs, have determined to present the popular and sen sational drama, entitled, "The Ticket of Leave Man,” in a manner that will pleaso their patrons and reflect credit upon them selves. A glance at the names attached to the address in which the benefit is proffered is a sufficient guarantee that the object is a worthy one, and if our public respond in their usual mauner a bumper is insured. The ladv and gentlemen of the company have, by their social and genial manners, already made a large circle of friends, who sincerely sympathize with them in their dilemma, and will exert themselves to tho utmost to help extricate them from it. rtue Humpies. Homo magnificent samples of rich galena ore were sent down yesterday from the Albion mine, and placed on exhibition at prominent business houses about town. A forty-pound ohunk was left at the Senti nel office, where it may be viewed by the curious and skeptical. Messrs. Potts and Williams, whoso compliments accompanied it, have our thanks. It is estimated that these specimens will assay in the neighbor hood of *150 per ton. — ('burets festival. A festival will be given at Miners’ Union Hall, one evening next week, for the bene fit of the Ruby Hill Methodist Church. The date has not yet been fixed, though it is thought that Wednesday evening will be selected. The Miners’Union have kindly tendered the free use of their hall for the oocaaion. Fi.ru mm. Mrrapa Irani the Note-book of the Mentlnel'e Reporter. Tlio Sheriff ami his deputies were kept pretty busy for awhile yesterday. Mr. Griff. J. Griffith, of the Wales Con solidated, returned last evening. Tho sale of the K K stops the shipment of ore from that mine to the Richmond. Yesterday was the most springlike day we have yet experienced this soason on the Rase Range. Tickets for the benefit of the Capt. Jack Combination attaches can be procured at office of Molinelli A Co. The big shaft will be put down on this side of the canyon, nearly dne cast of the old Skylark shaft. The Times-Iteview says Senator Sharon was greeted by but one man during his recent trip through the State. Captain Potts says ho has kept his word. He told the Albion shareholders that be would get ore, and he has got it. Some very fine specimens of ore, from tho Connolly mine, were on exhibition at Wells, Fargo A Co.’s office yesterday. Mr. Thomas B. Phcby, a mining expert, yesterday visited sotno of the Ruby Hill mines, and will proceed to Piocbo in a day or two. Tom Taylor's “ Ticket of Leave Man,” will bo produced at the benefit of tho at taches of the Capt. Jaok Combination on Saturday evening. J. B. Keen, auctioneer, will offer for sale, to-morrow, the valuable household and kitchen furniture of Mrs. Chas. Knight. This will bo a rare chance for bargains. THE ALBION. Ore Raining Inaugurated Night* ■lerore-I.ast— Eighty Tons on the Dnmp. There has been a systematic effort in certain quarters in this community to cloud and underrate the late development in tho Albion mine. The Sentinel has given the facts, from time to time, pre cisely as they existed. If there be con flicting titles, or claims to the ground, that is a matter for the Courts to deal with. This journal conceives it to be its duty to the public to announce important develop ments, whether made upon disputed terri tory or elsewhere. The existence of ore, destined to add to the wealth and impor tance of the district, is the chief thing in which the local public feels an interest. That there is ore, and plenty of it, in the Albion docs not admit of doubt. That it is of as high a grade, if not higher, than has hitherto been found in the mines of Ruby Hill is equally true. Tho dimensions of the bonanza are still undetermined. Enough is known, how ever, to establish the fact that tho body is very extensive. It has been penetrated a distance of thirty feet, showing marked improvement with every inch advanced. The work of hoisting ore was inaugurated night before last. At 3 o’clock r. m. yes terday about eighty tons of heavy black galena ore had been deposited on the dump. By the time this article reaches the public there will be, probably, one hundred and fifty tons on the surface. This is some thing tangible, something practical, that all who choose to visit the mine may see with their own eyes. The officers and em ployes are all sanguine that the Albion will very soon take rank as one of the great and productive mines of the district. MR. J. A. PORTER. An Affable Gentleman and a Thor* ouglily Competent Miner. By the sale of the K K, it is more than likely that the gentleman whoso name ap pears above will be lost to this community. That the loss is one that will be sincerely regretted by all who have enjoyed the ac quaintance of Mr. Porter, does not admit of a doubt. During the years of his resi dence in Eureka, by his straightforward, unassuming and affable deportment, be has won hosts of true friends among our people, whose good wishes will follow him wherever l.e may go. Besides being an ac complished gentleman in the broader and better sense of these terms, Mr. Porter is a most trustworthy business man, and a thoroughly competent miner. No better or more intelligent work has been done in any mine on the coast, than has been ac complished by Superintendent Porter in the K K. His achievement in ridding this mine of a perfect deluge of water, deserves to place him in the very first rank of suo succesaful mine managers. The Sentinel learns that Mr. Porter may possibly locate in Colorado, he having been tendered the superintendency of a mine in that 8tate. Ho departs to-morrow morning for San Francisco, to close up his affairs with the K K Company, returning to Eureka in about ten days. Until he takes his final leave the Sentinel will reserve its “ good bye.” Accidental Shot. Master Smith, a lad of nine summers, while playing with an old pistol yesterday received a ball in the thigh, inflicting a painful flesh wound. The little fellow showed true grit, and came down to Doctor De La Matyr to have it cut out, without saying a word to his mother about the oc currence. The Doctor extracted the ball, and Causey took tho youth home on his dray. Before departing he offered the Doctor a dollar for his surgical services, saying that he would pay the balance at an early day. That youngster has the cool ness and nerve to make his way through the world without much trouble. Pbenlx Election. At the regular annual ..'meeting of the Phenix Silver Mining Company, held at the office, 827 Pine street, San Francisco, Cal., on the 5th day of April, 45,781 shares being represented, the following named gentlemen wero elected to serve as a Board of Directors for the ensuing year: Alex. Forbes, President ; J. B. Haggim Wilson White, Hugh Craig, Herman Loeler, D. F. Verdenal, Secretary. District Court Proceedings. The following suits were commenced in the District Court yesterday : Sally Loibenhaner vs. J. H. Michel, for $5,787.28. Paxton A Co. vs. J. H. Miohel, for $344.57. A. Harris vs. J. H. Michel, for $4,100.47. J. Harteustoin vs. M. A B. Delahanty, for $1,018.89. _ Complaint against Colonel Blley. Col. Riley has been offending some peo ple in the vicinity of Quid a tree*. They oharge that rubbish gathered from other K.rtions of the town by the Coiunal, is ling deposited in that throughfaro.

Potent Received. Mineral patent No. 3,850, for the mining claim W. H. Gray, on the Holly lode, has been reoeived at the Land Office. PORTAL PERPLEXITIES. The Requirement* of Red-In pc Reg ulation* Tliero is not one man in ten thousand who realizes the annoyances to which a Postmaster in a town of the size of Eureka is subjected. The miscellaneous paper mail is the bane of the P. M.'s life. It is seldom that a letter goes astray, but these miscellaneous papers, with their poor wrappings and illegible directions, fre quently come up missing. If Mrs. John Jones sends Mr. John Jones a copy of the Bugle of Freedom, from the uttormost end of tho earth, and writes her absent, but beloved lord, that she has mailed him the afordhaid Bugle of a certain date, possibly containing a notice of a death or birth, full particulars of which she also gives in her letter, John will novor sloop a wink until he gets that paper, or knows tho reason why ho does not get it. Borne of the old coun try people register packages of newspapers. A Sentisel reporter witnessed a scene in tho Postoffice yesterday. John Jones was there. Postmaster Smith had notified him through tho press to call at the Post office on important business. His signa ture was wanted to a ponderous life-policy looking document from Washington. Mr. Jones had failed to get a bundle of worth less papers, now six months old. "Tracers” had been Bent through, all tho way from Berlin, to know what had become of it. Not one “ tracer,” but several. If tho re porter understood Mr. Jones oorrectly, this was the third red-tape ordeal of a sim ilar nature he had been called upon to un dergo. Each trip had involved tho loss of * day’B work. But the last document was the king-pin of them all. It was the grand finale, the crusher, tho culminating point when the Government, in its power and majesty, had resolved to dig up those old papers, or inaugurate a bloody foreign war. Jones was required to answer some thirty odd questions with minute particularity. His age, nativity, present residence, where he had lived and where he expected to go, all had to be explained on the margin of the parchment opposite the printed ques tions. Jones tackled the task, while Post master Smith eyed him with fiendish do light. There was a deal of scratching and blotting with a blunt pen. But finally the end came, and with it a manifestation of disgust from Jones. He had signed his name on overy available spot in tho body of the document. There was two inches of unappropriated space at the bottom. On this he plastered in great, bold John Han cock letters: “Damn those old papers; let ’em go to h—11,” and once more socked down "John Jones.” Through the sacri fice of Mr. Jones war may be averted. Postmaster Smith enclosed the voluminous statement in a two-foot envelope, branded on one corner in big red letters, “ Impor tant official business," and addressed it to the Forty-second Assistant Postmaster Gen eral, or some other high-sounding dignitary at Washington, after which he turned to the "general delivery” to wait on a gang of urchins, who were clamoring for their weekly “ record cards,” deposited by Prin cipal Scanland for the exclusive eyes of their parents. THE C1W STOCK. Nome Interesting Itntn for the Con sideration of Eastern Readers. There can be no question that the de pression in the Comstock is affecting in juriously the mining interests of the entire State in the eyes of Eastern investors. The idea prevails with them that the Comstock is “played out”; that it is not productive at great depth, and that it must soon be abandoned. Thinking thus, they class all other miuing sections in Nevada in the same category, and away they go with their capital to the fresher fields of Colorado. It is this false idea that must be combatted at the East. Confidence must be restored in the wealth of the Comstock before we can expect a general mining boom in our State. A fair revival of prices and a few dividend-paying mines on the Comstock just at this time would accomplish won ders for the rest of the State in the matter of attracting Eastern capital to a large number of languishing districts. The Comstock is cot exhausted, and has not reached too great a depth to pay. Ex perience teaches that the bonanzas of the grand old lode have steadily improved in wealth with depth. The following figures from the Gold Hill News, which are repro duced for the information of the Sexti xel's Eastern readers, disclose a state of facts which deserve to be attentively con sidered : Between the surface and the 1000 level of the Comstock twelve bodies of ore have been worked out, yielding 3,520,309 tons of ore, of an average value of $29 65 per ton, and have produced $103,425,074 in bullion. The net profit of working these bodies has been $22,813,280, which sum has been re turned to stockholders in dividends. Between the 1000 and 2000 levels two ore bodies have been up to the present time uncovered, and one of theso has boon worked out. The first was in Belcher and Crown Point, and the second in Con. Vir ginia and California, and is not yet ex hausted. Up to January 1, 1878, these two ore bodies yield 2,413,124 tons of ore, aver aging $61 50 per ton, and producing $148, 466,629 in bullion. The net profit in work ing these bodies up to the date above men tioned was $84,366,000, as per the return to the stockholders in dividends. These figures show that while the quan tity of ore extracted between the 1000 and 2000 levels was 1,107,185 tons less than the amount which the lode yielded between the surface and the 1000 level, the bullion pro duct of the former was $45,041,555 in ex cess of the latter, and the net profit real ized in dividends from the lower section was $61,522,720, or nearly 400 percent, greater than in the upper. Before the Bullion CluK Three lectures were delivered before the New York Bullion Club one night last week. Mr. W. P. Harbottle sdvooated Col orado, Professor Humbert discussed the Comstock, and expatriated George Daly talked about the wonders of Bodie. They had a rousing meeting, many distinguished gentlemen being present. The Public School. The exercises at the school-house to-mor row afternoon promise to be interesting. Masters Thomas Rickard and John Ham lyn will read the school paper, and will no doubt give visitors something worth listening to. -o A Man Mlaaluff.

A correspondent who recently made the trip from Wells station, on the Central Pa cific, to Cherry Creek, furnishes the fol lowing notes of interest regardijj what he ■aw: At Sprucemont, 50 miles from Wells sta tion and 7,000 feet above tbo sea, we found evidence of great engineering skill and financial disaster. Some one, who had the money of others to spend, had erected a large blast furnace and engine, such as is used in Pennsylvania to smelt iron, to re duce the lead ores of the camp. The en gine is powerful enough to run a steam ship, and gives a high-pressure blast strong enough to blow lead ore out of the top of the cupalo, and, consequently, very little came out below. Miners are thankful that ! it is now idle. With a capacity of 69 tons a day, to please the stockholders, and a supply of scarcely five tons, it is not sur prising that it soon run out of ore. The concern is $400,000 behind, and is now re organizing for a new deal. Sprucemont is a picturesque town, with a public square and some fifty houses and stores, several hotels and saloons, and soven inhabitants. It is a deserted village- a monument of exaggerated hopes and in competency. But there are, no doubt, some good claims there, worthy of develop ment. The few devoted men who remain, have faith, and mines to sell. Fifty miles further south, near Eagan canyon, the town of Cherry Creek is the present terminus of the stage route, and has the usual heterogeneous frontier popu lation of miners and mill men. It has the dignity of an express office, from whence bars of bullion are thrown into the bottom of the jerky, to break the legs of passen gers when they are overturned. Here, we find the Star mine, and mill of 20 stamps, in active operation. The ore is roasted, and is said to yield $60 and $75 per ton, and an aggregate product of $40,000 a month. Beyond, on the same range, is the Ex change, formerly the Exchequer, a silver mine, now idle, but soon to be started into active work, with a six-stamp mill nearby. Oil Paintings. Frank Keelar, the new auctioneer, will sell to-day, at 2 o’clock, in the store lately occupid as the Miners’ and Mechanics’ Store, ono hundred choice paintings by the principal celebrated artists of the day. The sale is positive and without reserve, as the goods are a consignment from Chas. E.
