/11_E EVENING NEWS.
CitEDONIA O. AND S. MlN'tNO CoMPANV
? ClTDB Ledoe. ? A few weeks ago we no
ticed this company's claim, and remarked
they were (in company with others)
tiding a grade from the Ophir road to their
mines, located at the head of Crown Point
Canon. Since that time, the grade has been
completed, and some rock brought down to
Darst & Harris' mill, which, upon working,
w as found to contain sixty dollars to the ton.
The company was formed and claim located
in August, 1860, by Mr. J. S. Watkins, to
whom all the credit' is due for prosecuting
the work under unheard of trials and diffi
culties, which will be noticed below. The
first work was done upon the ledge through a
short tunnel, striking the ledge some sixty
| feet below the surface. From this place rock
was obtained and sent to San Francisco and
assayed by Kellogg A Co, yielding $1,293 35
to the ton. This' was sufficient encourage
ment to induce the company to run a lower
tunnel. They have run this lower tunnel 422
feet, developing a well defined ledge five feet
wide. In running the tunnel some eighteen
feet beyond the first ledge another one was
found, and 1,200 feet located, called ledge
Xo. 2. There is an abundance of water in
the back part of the tunnel, but owing to
crevices and scams in the rock through which
the tunnel is run. it does not find its way out.
The Company will erect a mill at the mouth
of the tunnel in the spring. The difficulties
under which the Superintendent has labored
have been many. First ? the rock through
which the tunnel is run, has all been of tne
hardest kind, requiring blasting all the way.
Then, but few of the company would pay as
sessments and the ground would not sell at
any price until last spring. In the mean
time, Mr. Watkins, notwithstanding his best
friends, or would-be friends, thinking him
visionary in his ideas of a ledge off the range
of the one-ledge theory, labored to induce
him to give up the work. They even went
so ffcr *? to get aonae engineers to go upon
the ground, and in their assembled wisdom
*' high in mountain air," to denounce the
idea of a ledge, away up there, declaring that
it was away" out of the range, and far above
the deposit of argentiferous metals. Astound
ing wisdom ! the personification of the oue
ledge theory ; which, like all other theories,
in regard to the deposits of the precious
metals, are easily upset by the tuck and
shovel. There is a good paying ledge there,
one half mile west of the Comstock range, and
this is not the only good ledge either. Miners
here know that there are many ledges all
about us, only waiting the application of
labor and capital to bring them to light.?
Moonstruck theorists and visionary specula
t tors may wish to prove it otherwise. Let
them prate about the one-ledge theory, and
hold it up as a bug-bear. Also, let dis
appointed office-seeker*, cry out and
shout, and make all the political capital
they can. The miners stand back and laugh
at their folly, and upon the nineteenth of this
month they will mock their fear and defeat
comcth. Therefore, let them cry continually.
All the disappointed office-seeking parasites
in the Territory cannot make the miners and
men of sound sense believe in this one-ledge
theory, or that there is any danger of any
class of men ? lawyers, doctors, professional
or non-professional ? making it for one mo
ment appear that there is but one ledge in
Washoe. Why, it is so supremely ridiculous
that even A. Ward's babes in the wood
would hoot at the idea. And those who are
so short-sighted as to think there is danger of
the one-ledge theory being fastened upon us
if we have a State under our present Consti
tution, must think that the miners are all
fools, to say the least. Such persons will be
held in remembrance and they better hang
up their political fiddle before its groanings
herald their speedy dissolution. Amen ! so
niought it be.? {Our Keporter spreads him
self outside of his subject.? Ei>.]
Moke Ricu Ledges. ? And yet another
rich strike hereabouts! We were shown
this afternoon some exceedingly rich speci
mens of quart* taken from newly-discovered
ledges in the Devil's Gate District, which like
American Flat, is looming up as hopefnllv as
suddenly. These ledges are named the May
flower and Allen, and are consolidated
They are situated immediately on the line of
the Carson road, to the left, and nearly op
posite the I'hirnix mill, and between the Gen
rssee and Kossuth claims. They were dis
covered by Mr. Henry Allen, an old resident,
and a U?ag-?jiperienc?d miner, and locator
and prospector, both here and in California.
It was he who discovered the famous Bowery
claim in Gold Canon. At a depth of thirteen
feet the ledge of the Mayflower was found to
l>e three feet in width inside the fine hard
rasing, while the ledge of the Allen, at a
depth of three feet, was five feet in thick
ness, iuside the easing, and each becomes
wider as the depth increases. Gold, in the
specimen* shown us, predominates over sil
ver, and can be plainly seen with the naked
eye. Millraen have offered to crush the rock
at their own risk and give a correct return of
the result. The claim is twenty-four hun
dred feet on each ledge, and work thereon is
being pushed forward rapidlv. It is owned
only bv a few, and they are chiefly men of en
terprise and capital, who are sanguine that
they have a good thing, and who are deter
mined to spare neither labor nor expense to
develop it.
Dovolas ft Co. QrAEiz Mili..? Xext be
low the Marysvillc Mill, comes the Douglas.
The present mill was built in the (all of sixty,
but some time before this, upon the same
site, there was a small mill erected contain
er two large arastras. This mill has ten
stamps, fourteen 4 foot and ten 5 foot pans,
run by an engine of twentv-horse power,
consuming three and one-half cord* of wood
per day, and using three inches of water. ?
The ore which is worked at this mill is ob
tained from the Belcher mine. About 100
tons are crushed per week. The null runs
steadilv, day ana night, there seldom being
any delay by breakages.
Stan groom Comcast. ? The Stangroom
Company is situated on American Flat, and
was located by Mr. 8. Stangroom and others
in the month of March, 1862. For some
time work has been suspended, but recent
developments in the claims adjoining has
> awakened them to the sense of the value of
- their claim, and has decided them to com
mence work immediately to develope their
?nine. They have a meeting to-night to in

American Flat. ? We are informed by
Mr. Norton, one of the proprietors of the
new town laid out on American Flat, that
about one hundred of the most eligible lota

GOVERNOmAESSAGE.
Got. Nye delivered to-day his annual mes
sage to the Legislative Assembly. He con
gratulates the people upon the improved
state of Territorial and National affairs and
the unparalleled progress of the Territory.
He adverts at great length upon the extent
of the field of mining operations as being
daily developed by new discoveries. He
says;
We can felicitate ourselves that the field of op
eration:) within our borders is as extensive and
broad a* the aggregated surplus of capita) In the
old State* can desire. The almost daily discove
ries of new mining localities, rivaling in richness
the celebrated localities of Virginia and Gold
Hill, give ample proof that the mineral resources
of this Territory are, even at thin day, compara
tively unknown. Three years ago, Virginia and
Gold Hill were thought by many to be the only
really valuable and endarfsg mines of the Terri
tory ; and the Oomstock Lead or Lode, to con
tain the only silver- bearing quartz in this coun
try. The short time intervening has demonstrated
that almost countless ledges are found in the va
rioo* localities of our Territory that promise a*
ample a yield of the precious ores as has ever
heretofore been realized from the famous Corn
stock. The mining districts have multiplied to
such an extent that they preclude the possibility
of enumeration, while "the claims located in each
district are so numerous as to make it au almost
hopeless tusk to attempt to arrive at their num
ber with any degree of ccrtaiuty. New districts
are constantly being created, and their numerous
claims have ceased to attract attention. Look in
whatever directum we may. we behold the "pros
pector" upon the mountain side, making his loca
riou ; next we we the4 tunnel and the incline ;
then the mill, and the rich product of silver and
gold. Turn your eye in every direction from
the capital, and it rests upon miuiug regions fabu
lously rich.
The Governor successively alludes to the
several mining regions of the Territory, from
Humboldt on the north to the Colorado on
the south* from the Sierras on the west to
the Reese river country on the east. The ab
solute necessity of a system of railroads for
the adequate development of the resources of
the Territory is enlarged upon. He says :
" I recommend this subject to the consid
eration of your honorable bodies, with the
hope that, if in your power, you will do some
thing; to inaugurate a system so much needed
and required by the peculiarities of this Ter
ritory. The mineral productions of the Ter
ritory are so rapidly increasing ; our wants
are so multiplied and hard to be supplied; the
necessity for railroad communication with
California is every day more apparent. Its
local advantage to us is enough to warmly
enlist us in its favor and induce us to aid, in
every possible way, its construction. Its ad
vantages would be felt by every class of our
inhabitants, from the owners of our rich
mines tothe humblest laborer in their employ.
It would redice the price of every thing we
eat, drink or wear. With it, our mills will
soon be numbered by the thousands, and pro
ductions by hundreds of millions instead of
tens. If the enterprising company now con
structing the western branch of the great
Pacific Railroad are able to overcome the
barriers of the Sierras, and reach the plain
on this side, the future of this Territory can
not be overdrawn by the liveliest imagina
tion, if left uncontrolled, iu its wudest
flights.
In presenting the subject of railroad com
munication from the mountains on our west
ern border to the different mining localities
of this Territory, with the abreviated de
scription of the country over which they
would pass, it would not be improper for man
to say that the knowledge of the same is
based upon personal observation, fully sub
stantiated by careful observers, and made
certain by the testimony of scientific men.
I have deemed it proper to lay this subject
before you in the manner I have, believing
fully, if the experiment is tried, even by the
shortest of the proposed lines, it will demon
strate the propriety of the soggestions.
PACIFIC KAII.RO.Vl>.
Of the Pacific Railroad Law, he says :
"The announcement of the passage of
such a law, so liberal in its provisions, by a
Government involved in a war of the most
gigantic proportions, at a time when our na
tional existence (to the casual observer) was
more than threatened; when the financial
ability of the whole country was taxed to its
utmost to raise mcaus to preserve our na
tionality, struck us with surprise, and for
eign governments with wonder. The fact
that it was done, proves, beyond all question,
the wisdom and comprehensive statesman- j
ship of the Administration who passed it.
_ It gives evidence that those best calculated J
' to know the nation's power and weakness
had abiding confidence in its stability ; that
it was able not ouly to subdue, conquer and
crush the rebellion, but, at the same time,
go forward with this great national improve
ment, which, in effect, gives us as a people
the control of the world* commerce, or, at
least, makes it tributary to us. Time is the
most important consideration in large com
mercial transactions. That mode of con
veyance will be selected ; that route chosen
which is the safest and most expeditious,
without regard to cost of transportation, un
less the difference is so great as to overbal
ance accruing interest between purchase and
sale. Acting upon this wholesome rule of
commercial astuteness, the road when com
pleted, will carry all or the most valuable of
the Eastern and Asiatic productions from
the western to the eastern shore of the Con
tinent, and from there will seek by the most
rapid means of transportation, their several
destination*. Beyond and above all this? its
importance and influence upon us as a na
tion, cannot be over-estimated. The fact is
now established that we arc hereafter to be
one people and one government, possessing
vitality and power sufficient to put down and
control all intestine commotions, and guard,
protect and defend our most distant frontiers
and settlements. To do this the wise and
prudent foresight of an intelligent and vigi
lant people, speaking through their represen
tatives, adopted this plan of binding the ex
treme East and the extreme West of our
Continent together with iron bands. So
that if the foreign invader should land upon
the Western coast, the soldiers of the At
lantic States could be quicklv transported
hitherward to drive them back. It will do
away with the necessity of large standing
armies, their place being supplied by the iron '
rail, and locomotive. ? ? ? The
mighty labor of construction is already com
menced. The young, vigorous giant' of the
west has already- grappled with the mountain
barriers. The mountain is being hewn down;
the vmllevs filled up. Rough places being
made smooth ; the roadway made even ; the
structure placed on it* bed. The shrill whis
tle of the engine is heard upon the track ; its
head is turned eastward on its journey to
meet its coming brother, who is on its way
westward on toe plains of Nebraska and
Kansas, panting with impatience for the
greeting. I need not spend time to dilate
upon the unspeakable benefit* it will confer
upon us ; your own judgment will at once
anticipate them all, when vou reflect that its
course lies across the whole extent of onr
fast settling Territory. When completed,
we shall have an arterial lile-giving circula
tion.
TAXABLK PROPKKTT.
The increase of taxable property in the
Territory in the last year, is highly ' satisfac
tory and gratifying. Last year the total
amount was 89, ft)1.?, 300 00 ; this year it is
more than 925,000,000, thus speaking in
language not to be misunderstood, of the
substantial prosperity of the Territory.
Population has increased in a corresponding
ratio, bringing with it the comforts of life,
and the humanizing influences of family re
straint.
n XASCKS.
The financial condition of the Territory is
u flattering as could be expected, under the
circumstances. The total amount of indebt
edness of the Territory on the first day of
January, was about one hundred and twenty
nine thousand dollar*, of that amount nearly
nineteen thousand dollars is sot payable un
til the fiscal year of 1864 and 1864, leaving
the sum of one hundred and ten thousand
dollars as the present amount of indebted
ness now due. To meet this debt, we have
the general property tax, for the past year,
amounting, as per estimate of the Treasurer,
to the sum of about ninety-five thousand dol
lars, die greater put of wWh, will probably
be paid into the Treasury during the present
month. This will leavethe deficit for the
past year of about fifteen thousand dollars,
which amount, together with the salaries of
. f Territorial officer*, and aU appro
p nations of yon r honorable bodies, mutt
await payment until the collection of the
taxes for the present fiscal year, which un
der our present revenue law, cannot be done
for twelve months, the Territory having so
other source of revenue |han that dan red
from the general property tax. You will
perceive, from this statement, that the reve
nue for each year is anticipated long before
its receipt, and whilst the revenue is nroha?
bly ample for all the expenses of the Terri
tory, yet, by keeping t waive months ahead of
the receipt, the credit of the Territory reaches
a scry low point, and the necessary expenses
of the Government are greatly increased in
consequence.
SCHOOL*.
"The Report of the Superintendent of
Public Instruction, which I submit to your
consideration, shows that a considerable de
gree of progress has been made. From this
report it appears that the system of Common
Schools, as amended during the last session
of the Legislature, has been regularly organ
ized in every county of the Territory, and
there is generally a growing feeling of inte
rest on tne subject of Education. In that
report several defects are mentioned in the
present School Law and amendments parsed
which I hope will receive your careful con
sideration. The fact that tfie law appropria
ting, semi-annually, five per ceht. of all sums
received as Territorial tax for school pur
poses, expires with the present fiscal year,
demands vour prompt attention. Unless it
is renewed, the already inadequate provision
for the support of our "Public Schools will be
materially lessened."
AOHICfLTfHE.
Referring to the recent Territorial Exhi
bition of Agricultural products, he says s
"Specimens of wheat, corn, barley and
oats gave evidence that our valleys, when
cultivated, will produce in abundance, and
sufficient to support a population much larger
than that which we now have. The exhibi
tion of vegetables was still more surprising.
In no portion of our country could it be ex
celled In quality, aud the quantity produced
per acre can no where be excelled, establish
ing the fact that our soil is peculiarly adapt
ed to this branch of husbandry. By ordinary
carc, a large supply, and even a surplus of
these articles can be produced over ana above
all that may be required for home consump
tion. Let it once be known, us it ought in
justice to be, that our soil will produce as
abundantly as our mines, and emigration
will flow in upon us with great rapidity. The
show of stock of all varieties was more than
creditable to a country much older than
ours, and would have astonished the stock
growers of the old States, and caused them
to wonder how so much could be done In so
short a time. I bespeak for this Society the
fostering care of the Legislature, believing
that aa its objects are promoted our prosperi
ty will be greatly advanced."
BILLION.
The amount of bullion shipped by public
conveyance" from the Territory, since the
session of the last Legislature, will amount
to about $1-5,000,000. The amount retained
and sent by private convcyanee will amount
to 83,000,000, making an aggregate of about
?1S, 000, 000; a large increase over the last vear,
and showing clearly that the amouut o I our
mineral production depends entirely upon
the means of reduction in operation. From
the number of mills now being erected, and
those to be erected during the coming year, I
think it entirely safe to say that the amount
of bullion produced next year will be double
that of this.
MILITARY*
Under a call from the General Govern
ment for Volunteers, four full companies of
cavalry have volunteered from this Territory
and have been mustered into the service of
the United States. Two more companies of
the same arm of service are now rapidly fill
ing up, and will soon be in the field. Added
to this, a regiment of infantry is being raised
and organized for the United States service.
Eight companies are already being enlisted,
and two more will soon be organized, and
their officers engaged in the business of re
cruiting for them. When full, there will then
be one complete regiment of infantry, and a
battalion of cavalry, consisting of six com
panies. The energy displayed by the officers
having the recruiting service in hand, and
the alacritv with which our young men an
swer to the call of the country, leave no
doubt of succcss ; a most gratifying assurance
that the loyalty of our citizens has suffered
no abatement, but is ready and willing to
answer all calls made upon their patriotism.
The State of California, through her Legisla
ture, made an .appropriation, by which each
volunteer receives fire dollart per month in
addition to the Government bounty and pay
of the soldier. I suggest somfc such measure
be adopted by this Territory ; IJani quite cer
tain that a loyal people will be willing to bear
that small burthen in this great struggle now
pending.
STATE CONSTITUTION.
" The Legislature of 1862, passed a law,
entitled, ' An Act to frame a Constitution and
State Government, for the State of Washoe.'
j The people under the provisions of the law,
[ voted with great unanimity in favor of it.
They elected their delegates to the Constitu
tional Convention, who assembled at the Cap
ital in accordance with the law, and after an j
unusually short session formed and submit
ted a Constitution for the ratification of the i
people. The question, whether the people
will adopt it, will soon be decided. If it is j
adopted, thcu of course the labors of this j
Legislature will be much abridged. The
Constitution, in view of its adoption, wisely
provided that the laws of thfe Territory should
remain in force until amended or repealed by
the State Legislature. Care should be
exercised in the passage of new laws in the
interim, that they do not infringe upon its
provisions. The Constitution thus submit
ted is passing through a severe ordeal. What
the judgment of the tribunal to which it is
submitted will be, I know not. Whatever it
may be, we must remember that it is the
voice of a free people, to which we must sub
mit, and with which we must be content. I
desire to say this much, from personal obser
vation, the Convention displaced great earn
estness and industry in framing the Consti
tution, and seemed exceedingly desirous to
so perform their labors as to commend it
to the favorable consideration of an en
lightened constituency. I bespeak for it the
calm, candid, unbiased judgement, becoming
a people earnestly endeavoring to do what is
best for themselves and those who come after
them."
The message concludes with a most elo
quent appeal to the people to stand firm and
unwavering to the duty they owe their coun
try, and a beautiful apostrophe to the memo
ry of those who have (alien in the nation's
defense, which the late hour at which the
message was received, prevents our publish
ing this evening. We shall do so in our
next issue.
The New State. ? Notwithstanding the
opposition thereto of Secessionists and some
Union men who were disappointed in their
aspirations before the Conventions, the new
Constitution of Nevada will be approved by
the people, according to the opinion of our
Virginia correspondent. Of course the
latch-string is out at the national capitol,
ready for her to pull it and enter. Congress
and the people will welcome her to the sister
hood if sne but say the word. It would be
beneficial to the Pacific coast to have that
State represented in the national councils by
an able and working delegation. We of Cal
ifornia are interested in uie result of the com
ing election in Nevada to this extent, and
possibly to a still greater extent. ? Sac. Bee,
Jan. 9.
Gov. Seymoi'K. ? The Transcript, in al
luding to Governor Seymour'* late message,
has the following : He says, now is the time
for peace. Yen, a piece of a shell that will
stop the wind of such traitors as he. The
blatant scoundrel and hypocrite gays, the
Union cannot be saved in any other way
than by trying for peace now, and then he in
timates on wnat terms, which are, the re
storation and protection of slavery. It is
differently expressed in the message, but
this it the English of it. We are not much
in favor of mob law, but If a rope should
accidentally get around the neck of such
men as Governor Seymour, we would be dis
posed to attribute it to the righteous judg
ment of Providence, and marvel at His good
ness and mercy.
A New Corvrc.? The people of Honey
Lake Vallev are moving to establish ? new
county, and the Quincv (Won learnt that
they contemplate including within its boun
daries Sierra and Beckwourth Valleys and
the Big Meadows. The people of Sierra
Valley are satitfied as they are, they ask no
change, and the citizens of Honey Lake will
only defeat their project by attempting to take
in territory to which they have no shadow of
a claim. ? Sierra Democrat.
A dispatch states, at a novel discovery,
that the terms of service of only 20,000 of our
veteran troops will expire before the lit of
July. It is lingular that there should have
been a contrary impression. The bulk of
war-trained ana war-hardened troops will be
available far what is generally regarded at
the final campaign of the contest.
The California 8upreroe Judges announce
that hereafter all decisions will be announced
from the Bench. Heretofore a large propor
tion of them have been determined in Cham
ben, and filed when the Court waa not in
?eannn.
?Tbb Buitians at San Francisco are taking
an interest ia the raiting of the Comanche,
and are making suggestions of which advan
