Marshall of Idaho, has appointed A. C. Springer of this County, one of his deputies. Mr Springer's experi ence as Sheriff renders him particularly fit ted for the position.

He informs ua that the worst drawtiack to the Lemhi coun try is a want of lalior, and he fear* the White Pine excitement will aggravate the disease. A communication fr-un "Old Resi dent," propounding some knotty questions in regard to the Fifth Session law's, is re ceived, but our limits exclude it this time. Why the law* are doled out in such small piecemeals is probably more apparent to the publisher than to us. We will give it further attention in our next \ Rnnaway with do bad results, oc curred yesterday, betweeD this place and Ruby.

Golden Chariot.—A forceol 70 men is employed at the Golden Chariot mine, and large quantities of glittering ore ing brought Co the surface.

It is handsomely and sub stantially timbered, down 80 feet, so that an immense, body of rich ore situated between the two shafts will soon be ready for stoping. The Big Tunnel.—We are informed by those who ought to know, thal George Collier Robbins, will soon arrive here, fully prepared to commence the big tunnel through War Eagle Mountain. Thai, together with the working of additional mines, will create a healthy state of business, and make times lively in Owyhee. Rich.—We have recently been shown several pieces of gold bearing quartz of mar vellous richness from Peck & Porier's mine. The ore is similar in appearance to that of the Golden Chariot and Ida Elmore, conse qneni of being situated on the same belt or range of quartz. Another IUlne.—L. W. Green well is engaged in developing another mine imme diately south of Peck k Porter's claim, on the same lode. Encouraging prospects are obtained. Minnesota.—Operations have been re sumed on the Minnesota. The north shaft is now down 80 feet on the vein, which is yield ing quartz that will doubtless pay largely for working. A Snow-Mid«* occored on Ix>ng Gulch sometime during the middle of last week, which resulted in the death of Mr. Jacob Firebaugh. It scorns that Mr. Firebaugh, who head of the gulch, was cabining by himseir, and his neighbors, noticing his absence from home for two or three days, suspicioned that all was not right, and instituted a search.— Some distance below his house it was ob served a small snow slide had occurred, and engaged in chopping wood near the going to the place found Mr. F's hat upon Information of the fact was the snow. brought to town on Saturday morning; a party, consisting of Mo»« Lyon and other friends of the deceased, immediately started out with shovels, Ac., to hunt for the body, which was soon found a few feet from where the hat was discovered and about four feet below the surface of the snow. The deceased had been traveling on snow shoes and it is supposed was returning from town at the time the accident occurred. He was found with his feet down bill, with every indication to show that the slide had been occasioned by his disturbing the new snow lying upon the old frozen crust The body was cold and stiff and had probably lain there two or three Mr. Firebaugh and his father were of days. the party with Mr. Cope in the first discov cry and location of the Potoel mine, In this place.

I have A Wave correspondent says : visit to the R. S. mill of the ore. Mr. Hall, the newly arrived su perintendent seems to be a very pleasant and energetic gentleman—he is everywhere, and everything is conducted under his immedi ate supervision. He informed me that an other plan would be set to work this week, when they will l>e able to work 18 to 20 tons daily. The rock in the ore Loose is exceed ingly rich, in ta. t so rich that it has to lie mixed with an inferior class of ore ta save the mineral more easily. At the Assay office where the gentlemanly Mr M *yer presides four bricks were cast during my visit, avera j gi n g tiHy pounds each. Th« average yield ol | the mill as near as an outsider may be sup posed to know, is about 170 pounds of bullion, worth irora tifteen to seventeen dollars p >r pound or from two to three thousand dol lars daily. "White Pine.—Through the courtesy of Cbas. Hanson, of the Miner's Hotel, we have been permitted the perusal of a letter received from his old partner, S. O. Hughes, dated Treasure City, Feb. 6th. Mr. Hughes states that Owyheeans are arriving every day; a few of them have gone to work, but most of them are wandering about idld. He considers that there are by far too many people there at present, as but little or prospecting can lie done until the snow goes away. Lots, twenty-five feet front, near the business portion of town, are selling as $5,000, and lumber is from $200 to $400 per thousand. Mahogany wood, of which there is an abundance in the vicinity, sells at $20 per cord. Everything in the shape of lots, wood ranches, &a, have been "gobbled up " long ago. In short, Mr. Hughes advises his friends not to come to White Pine till Spring. high The Baxter.—Work is actively pro gre8sing on this mine, which is yielding ore that cannot fail of placing it m the front rank of richly paying mines in this country. It is expected that 20 stamps will be kept running on Baxter ore all next summer. Bets are firing made that General Grant's in.augural address will be the briefest ever made. Lord Napier has sent General Grant one of King Theodore's Arabic Bibles, for de votional use. A Purls letter says Victor Hugois seri ously ill of what closely resembles Bright's disease of kidney.
