fip i tmui of i ist Chance ti Middle
Distiiot, on Bittle (..Trek, Harney
District being ab iva an 1 Rosebush
below, Harney City and Battle City
b-ing tin it respective capitals. The
off h in l way in which the word city is
p.led on to c.Very collect,oil of ten or
titiesii onbins would . x ii« tho envy of
a -i'Jer. Battle < ruen, like many other
oraeks in the Hil.ti, is quite tl it, and
although it is hut five or six feet to
bed io,"f, tl*i- mines are rather hard to
open. Very liith- work tins been done
as yet, but the cr ck prospects well
whey-ver it has b*en tried. Water is
scarce at present. t>.t the miuers get
more th tn they want at soon as tu*v
b'gin to sink. Claims arc located
) long the creek for uioie th.iu twenty
miles, and any number of Kids creeks
and gulches arc claimed. If one claim
iu twenty turns out well this will be n
good mining country.
There is a great deal of quartz
around bira and very many ledges
have been located. Some of them
look weii but the ora Las not been
tested yet.
The weatlnr has bien splended for
the last two weeks. *ud uinch pros
pecting has bem done iu that time.
The snow has disappeared except iu
the deep canyons sud ou th'* uorth
mile of the bills, and if the weather
continues favorable there will be con
siderable placer mining done this
month. Money is scarce, but a pet
son doesn’t notice it so much here,
as gold miners' wants are few and
they don’t require much capital for
their business.
The Indians have not troubled ns
this winter, but this fine weather may
tnaw them out. They made >t so warm
on this creek last summer that the few
whites hud to leave, but I do not think
they will try to mu off the present
crowd, which is a little too large tor
them to fool with.
While speaking of Hayward, I for
got to say that it is a regularly laid-ont
town, anil cousists of about twenty
houses, including four groceries and a
blacksmith shop. Two lots are re
served for a sohool-house and church.
The town is governed by a City Coun
cil. Justice ef the Peace and City
Marshal.
It has also started that indispensa
ble adjunct to a new mining town, a
grave yard; but, perhaps, I should s»y
th.at the town was started as an adjou< t
of the grave yard --a miner having ac
cidentally shot hiuisolf before the town
was laid out.
On the 1st instant, two men hud a
shooting scrape here in which one was
mortally wounded. A miners’ meeting
was called immediately, for 11 o’clock
a. M. ithe shooting was done in the
morning), a jury was impaneled, conu
s* I appointed und (lie case was tried
and the prisoner acqnioted, before 4
o’clock p. m. The verdict gave general
stisfuction, ns the evidence showed
conclusively that the slain man was
ihe aggressor. More anou.

If there is any victim of an eruptive

abandon his despondency. So long us
it is possible for him to obtain Glknn’s

Dow Hunt8mau, tko genial host of
the Capital Hotel, and C. W. Frazer,
another euterprisiug citizen of Battle

their way to Suu Francisco. They
report times lively in the mines around
Battle Mountain, and being the near

To-morrow, February 22ud, will be
the 1 loth anniversary of Washington's
biitbduy, rire Father of his Country
having been Lotn iu the colony of Vir
ginia iu the ye»r 1732. It it a leral
holiday and is observed as sucli
throughout the entire laud; therefore,
no SiiAhii State will be issued. Since
New Year’s, our "boys,” from “devil”
up, have worked hard and faithfully,
completely ignoring the momentous is
sm s thru.-t u| ou the American people
by the recent Presidential campaign
iu obeyauce to the every-day duties of
“setting op” the “matter” needed to
lid these columns. Lint the patriotic
fires of their youthful hearts have not
boeu so smothered by the cares and
anxieties of business life us to eradi
cate from their thoughts tli it realiza
non ot peril to the principles estab
lished by Washington and their fore
fathers at preseut felt by every true
American heart; nud to-morrow, while
the associations that cluster round the
name of him who was "first in pence”
uu I ‘ first in war” recalls to their
nuud’s eye the vivid scenes of Valley
Forge, Yorktowu and Buuktr Hill; as
each pulse quickeus with adiunatiou
when contemplating the noble spirit
that incited men to self-sacrificing ac
tion in the infancy of the republic; us
me flood-tide of patriotic fervor ena
bles them to keenly appreciate the
priceless value of that liberty from the
yoke of tyrannical thralldom which
necessitated the shedding of rivers of
blood to seeure and dealt sorrow's re
lentless blow to thousands of houso
holds—then our "bojs” intend to
consider the action of the several re
turning boards and decide, from an
unbiased, purely patriotic investigation
of the matter, that Samuel J. Tilden
has bueu legally elected President ot
these United States. As their decision
will undoubtedly stills the vexed ques
tion beyond nil cavil or dispute, we
could not consistently deny them the
pleasure of so worthily improving a
splendid opportunity to indelibly wiite
their mimes upon the historical scroll
of famous men.
