Burnt River Mine«.
Mining in Baker County, Oregon,
has assumed considerable impôt t
ance within tit* past year. Many of
our citizens went to Wiiiow Creek
last fail: some retm nod and some re
mained, but all agree as to the rich
ness of the mines, provided water
could be bad to work them,
fifty mile ditch of Pack-wood A Co.,
promises to obviate this difficulty in
time, but the great length of the
work, necessarily prolongs the intro
duction of sufficient watt? to suppiy
any considerable niimbi f of mines.
The small streams that ar« tapped on
the way to the main source in Burnt
River, are inconsiderable in them
selves, and all are trying to hold out
tinfil the work is completed. Grow
ing weary of the delay, several of
the boys from Owyhee have struck
out in search if new diggings, and
Adam A.-sall, in a letter to Ms friend
Hill, gives the result of their explo
rations, so far as he and hie immedi
ate company are concerned.
About the 1st of August, they left
a Contract they had on the Burnt
River ditch, in which they had man
aged to sink all the money they had,
and moved up the .South Fork, on a
prospecting tour. One days journey
up the South Fork, they encamped
in a thicket of Service bushes, where |
they remained long enough to dry
sufficient of the berries for Winter
use, when they proceeded up the
stream to a tributary known as Bull
lion; here they found good prospects
and went to work. On the 13th of
Ihr
August, nine meu had collected on
the stream, aud on that day formed
the Diatriei of Bull ltun, elected
Chart- l.ynde, Recorder, located
claims and proceeded to the business
of miniug in earnest. They flint their
diggings to avarage about eigll dol
lars to the man, and as they are un
'disturbed by outsiders, bave no
trouble to hold all the ground they
wish, and are really a happy and
contented little colony, undisturbed
by any of the vanities, frivolities and
gayeties of fashion, living on the
products ol the soil, they bave
grocer's bills, bar bills, doctor's
bills, church contributions, nor other
enlightened schemes for absorb ng
their earnings; like Cooper's fabled
inhabitants ot Vulcan's L'eak in an
BO
unknown ocean, they have no paras
vexations, beyond the simple
xortlon it takes to gather sufficient
Their amuse
nor

food to sustain life,
ments are all Innocent, and consist
chiefly in the chase, for which an
abundance of game affords ample
opportunity. Like Cooper's happy
colony, they are about to be invaded,
Adam has board that three more men
and one, If not two, woman are on
their way, trying to spy >ut their
quiet retreat, and that the apple of
discord is about to be introduced.
Lawyers, Doctors and Preachers are
expected to follow. Then, farewell
peace, farewell contentment, fare
well innocence.
Adam and his simple companions,
like his ancient name-sake, are hap
in their little Dien; but Eve is on
her way thither! a very Pandora, to
the box of evils, that are to fly
PI
opcil
abroad over Bull Kun and Job's
Creek tu set the inhabitants by the
*ars.
Adam ami his party have also ta
ken claims on Job's creek which
prospect quite as well as Bull Run.
They are erecting hydraulics there,
paying *75,00 per M, for lumber.
There are other unprospected creeks
in the vicinity, which may afford
work for a number of people
next Summer. The place has been
infested by Indians, until Gen. Crook
corralled them last Sommer. The ;
Valievs are described as fertile, ami
covered with a luxuriant growth of
grass, the stream- abound with fish,
'he ponds with ducks, geese and
other water fowl, notbat bad not ;
women discovered their retreat, this',
little colony might have lived, grown
rich and died in peace, unknown and

Last night at twelve o'clock, an

the tomb where we but give place to
others, as the years succeed each
other in turn. Ktnpires die away
and immediately others spring into
existence and take their places.—
These die, as do all Earth's ephem
eral kingdoms, to make way for an
increasing round of years, ages and
events.
Each individual *« duty —insignifi
cant a« be and that duty are—is to
make the bent record he can of his
own brief hour on the stage, and,
hand to his successors the things in- j
trusted to him in life, improved if I
possible, for his having lived in the
world, so that posterity may have an
example worthy of emulation, and
that they may point to with pride in
stead of shame. The duty of public
reel record of passing events, with
such wholesome comments, as will
strengthen righteous convictions,
and tend to dissipate Error. While
we indulge in these reflections, the
silent tread of Time is almost atidi
ble, with its sluggish burden of
blighted anticipations, vanished vis
ions, hopes deferred, intermingled
with smiles and tears, an it rus
tles its withered drapery towards the
tomb of Centuries. Eighteen hund
red and sixty-eight is gone to join
the past, i there to remain until

Tribute to Lincoln.-Hon.
Schuyler Colfax, in a recent speech
at Lafayette, Indiana, where he had
a little audience of about TuxtUy
Thousand, paid the following beauti
ful tribute to our late President.
We find a noble President, faithful
to the Constitution, and taitiitui
against the rebellion. You will re
member how ail the elements of par
ty bitterness were let loose upon
him; how slander and abuse and cal
umny were heaped upon him, and
finally how be fell pierced by the
bullet of a rebel assassin. Noblest
of the Presidents since the days of
Washington, he was denounced as
uo-President has ever been reviled,
and yet he reviled not again, but
pursued his line of duty untiinch-1
ingly to the end. Supported by a
noble patriotism, bis course was true
and faithful to the day he was num
bered with the dead. Bead did 1
say V he is not dead, lie is one of the
few immortal names that were not
born to die. [Prolonged Cheering.)

We get a rumor from South
Mountain, that Indians have made
their appearance in that locality.
Wm. Walsh and other?, were aroused
Irom their beds a tew nights since by
their dogs, and in the morning moc

proximity to camp.
Col. Huduuft, in bin address
to the Legislature, thus speaks ofj
the hospitality of the people of Boise j
City. "Evervthing seems teem
