—The Tunk Fond Fishing Fraternity
made another trip to their camp hist week
and through the court sey of some of their
meddlers the w rite* had the pleasure of ac
companying them. The camp is located on
the shore of Spring River Fond, alsmt 24
miles from Ellsworth and fimiles from Cher
r\ field. 'I'lie distance to 'l'unk Fond,
the principal fishing ground, hcing almut
one half mile. The camp is finished
and furnished so completely as to almost
take away the idea that one i» camping out
and the liountiful supply of provisions was
more than equal to the demands of the in
creased appetite* produced by exercise in
the pure air. Every thing is done under |
the direction of ('apt. A. T. Jellison, the |
veteran sportsman, whose experience am- .
ply qualifies him for the position. Arriving
there late on the first day, the evening was
s:H*nt in arrangements for an early raid 911
fish the next day. About o'clock the 1
next morning an alarm at the door an
nounrcu tin* arrival of the stage from F.1U

Mac., who always sleeps with one eye oj»en.
wa> out of his hunk in a moment to let in
the nearly frozen driver, and secure the first
reading of the latest paj>ors, w hich provident
; friends had sent down. The hospitable
j nature of the ('apt., in this instance, made
him the victim of misplaced confidence and
the subject of many a go*xl Matured laugh
| during the re«t of the trip. Breakfast over,
a start was made for the fishing grounds on
• Tunk" and then commenced the real work
of the trip A dozen holes were cut through
about l '» inches of ice and tempting bait
let down to entice the lx-autiful togue and
>w. A fair catch wraa the result of
the day** work and all returned to camp, ut

at North Penobscot, Friday evening of this
week. It was my pleasure to hear this led
ure in D »ver, N 1L, last fall, and it was |
there pronounced one of the l*e*t Temper
ance lecture* ever delivered in that beer- }
cursed city .
Mr. Vibliert has not the dramatic elo- :
quence of a Goff, or the pathetic, touching
power of a Murphy; he deals not in thrill
ing descriptions that excite the emotions of
his audience, hut he presents the subject in
a fresh and convincing light, appealing to
the common sense and common interest of
the masses. He says, “The most sensitive
nerve in a Yankee is the nerve that leads to
his pocket,” and upon that nerve he brings
his intellectual battery to licar with peculiar
skill and power. IPs 1. ’.are abounds in
sharp hits .aaldonot fail to bring dow n the
house, and is very entertaining.
We understand that his engagement to
speak at the Northern Bay this week is can
j celled on account of the pressure of other
engagements.
let there f>e a grand rally. C ome with
earnest hearts and willing pockets and
cause him to feel that his effort is appreciated.
—We are afraid that our “mining excite
ment*' will flush in the pan unless there is
more generous faith in humanity exhibited.
Our land-owners seem to lie laboring under
an “awful presentiment*' that rogues and
speculators are to take possession of their
coveted treasures, by some mysterious,
slight-of-hand performance, and they seem
to look with cold suspicion upon even
stranger who opens his mouth with the in
quiry “Have you any minerals on your
premises •*” Every one—there may l>e a
few exceptions—seems to have a strong de
sire to kiiou a hat there is under the sod be
fore he is willing to sell-out or lease his
mineral interest.
But farmers do you feel able and willing
to make the doubtful discovery at your own
expense, and pay the price of scientific in
formation to aid you in your undertaking ?
We fear that little will he done to uidock
oui possible mineral wealth, uidess capital
is generously invited from abroad.
It seems to me that a public meeting com
posed of persons in town who are interested
in mining, to consult together for the com
mon good, would be a move in the right
direction. •
— We hope that Republicans will bear
themselves *uu modesty and dignity umier
uieir late victory, and not seek tu irritate
ami tantalize their deluded fusion brelnreu,
remembering that “to err is human, and to
forgive is Divine”, (upon the condition of
repentance of course.) We believe that the
era has not yet arrived, when by divine
order, the sheep take their places on the
right hand and the goats take their places
on the left hand, nor when all good men
take their places in the right party, and all
IkuI men take their places in the wrong
party. Sheep and goats will 1m* more or less
mixed in this world, ami it only adds cruelty
to presumption for each sj>ecieH to ignore its
family relationship.
The Grant boom seems to 1m* booming
wonderfully. We cannot resist the impres
sion that Grant's nomination would Im* a
misfortune to the Republican party, and his
election Ik* a jmssiblc* misfortune to the
country. We cannot shut our eyes to the
fact, that the civil service under Grant's ad
ministration was not notoriously pure, nor
his administration pre-eminently popular.
It led to a rupture in the Republican ranks,
and caused the temporary alienation at least,
of some of its strongest men. It seems
hardly wise to accept for a third term one
whose pre-eminent claim seems to Ik* chiefly
founded on his military genius and his
foreign popularity.
Grant has nothing to gain in point of
honor, ami it seems almost too much to ex
j»ect of his human nature that his patriotism
alone would Ik* sufficient to carry him
through the strain of another term of trying
responsibilities ami temptations.
We need more than faith in a military
genius to preserve our republican institu
tions from decay—we need faith in the in
destructible principles of s«*lf-govcmment.

All easx qualitative test for poor silx’er
ores, I am not acquainted w ith. The test
involves the use of mercury ami a mercury
retort or of cupels, scoritiers ami an assay
furnace.
The minerals present are the lK**t indica
tion. and the mineralogy of silver will U*
treated of at length in subsequent articles.
If gold has been found in any mineral, sil
ver is almost certainly present. If copper
can \*v found silver may l>e present. If cop
per can Ik* found in pay ing quantity it is al
ways worth while to assay for silver, for in
working -ulphuret ores even one-half ounce
of silver can be profit ably extracted, and e\
|H*rience show s that copper py rites usually
contain at least that amount, and a trifle of ■
gold.
The next chemical test to In? given is that
for the presence or absence of copper.
The ore should Ik- reduced to a fine pow -
der, as descrif>ed in a previous article. It
may then Ik* roasted, as described in that ar
ticle, or treated by the following process:—
The operations should Ik* done out of doors
or in a room with all the windows open, as
the fumes are both unpleasant and unwhole
some. Put half a teaspoonful of the oie»
powdered title and either well roasted or raw .
m a bowl. 1 think a bowl is lK*st, as chem
ists’ glass ware is fragile, and other glass
ware useless, from its liability to crack on
heating.
If the ore is roasted pour on about two
teasjjoonfuls of strong nitric acid ami cau
tiously raise the heat. If not roasted, add
about one teaspoonfrd of chlorate of potash
well powdered, and mix well with the ore;
then add drop by drop strong nitric acid,
stir well with a glass rod or clean stick of
wood. Add the acid in small portions till
about two teaspoonfuls have been put on.
After it has ceased fuming warm as Itefore.
A prospector out of doors can warm the
bow l in hot ashes easily . The fumes begin
again but soon stop. Then add very cau
tiously, in small portions, strong ammonia
water—the nmntonia fortitor of the apothe
caries—until the whole, when well stirred,
smells pungentiy of ammonia.
Let the mass stand a few minutes and then
dilute with a tumblerful of water, stir well
and let it settle. The top liquor, if copper
is present in any desirable quantity, should
Ik* strongly blue or bluish green, and can lie
easily seen to Ik* so in a w hite bow l. A red
dish brown mass of hydrate of iron will
probably Ik* left in the bottom after settling.
It will usually Ik* advisable, to ensure cer
taint\ as to results, to pour the top liquor
which has settled clear into a clear glass
tumbler ami examine the color over a w hite
paper.
This transfer of liquid, called decantation,
can be more readily done by applying a
clean stick to the part of the bowl from
which you pour, so that the end of the stick
is over the tumbler, and the middle touches
the edge of the bowl. The liquid will be
found to follow the stick down into the
tumbler and not run down the side of the
bowl, in this way with a little practice,
the clear top liquor can be trensferred with
out taking with it the dregs or precipitate,
as chemists call it, at the bottom.
The expense of testing for copper in this
way is only a few cents, and the test can
l»e executed by any careful person. I must
again repeat keep out the way of the fumes,
have plenty of air and draft to carry them
off. Keep your nitric acid, strong ammoma
and chlorate of potash properly labelled and
out of the way of other people.
