The Daily Orcgottion tells the following
Mr. r. , one of our most prominent
survevors, connected with one ot the rail
i outl wmpanies, was l-eeently running a line
near the old military road, between the
towns of Cornelius and Astoria, in tins State,
he chanced to make one of his places for an
mi"lc upon a pvramidal stone that on^rcd a
"uUahle point of for hi* theodolite h.
ilie small rocky fclen tlirnti-li which Ins
cour-e lav. The stone itself, of the shape
described', was scarcely less prominent than
others that lav loosely scattered about the
plan' onlv lor 'its peculiar formation, which
it ,|,c selected ol^ct. It was covered
with lichen, and with tM? exception ol the
which lav toward a brook that ran
near bv was grown about with under
brush iwuliar to the forests of Oregon.
Vs the survevt r and his three assistants
were isilhered about tin* rock, indulg
ing i? a short rest, one of their number
leaned his back against it and raised one foot,
niacins; the sole of the boot, perhaps, a lew
inelie* from the ground, against the stone, to
-. I a position of ease. Immediately as he
did so the moss gave way under the pres*
-nre and his foot came to the ground, baring
the rock. Glancing downward to secure
another foothold his eye fell uj>on another
queer-looking inclsi<m in the smooth rock
t hat looked much like the mark ot a chisel,
lie looked again, and became convinced that
the mark was too deeply cut and too regular
to have been the work of nature. 1 romp ed
l.y the curiosity that holds to ;dl? where little
in seen to see more it possible? he called tin
attention of others to his discovery and
,!,?.v anxious for a farther investigation,
u-cd a small hand-axe that was in the party
to clear more of the moss away, and to
worn fluiniitoi^ , 4t
Plu^'-d bv thl- cabalistic disclosure, they v\ en
moi-c than ever at a loss what to do. 1 here
; them, evidently the work ol human
hands but for what purpose, to mark what
ovent. that work hidden by nature s changes
until the foot of man j :i?vi?!ewl?IU e n
|j.e),t d'd no' show, the ttomati characters
,n,p|oved undoubtedly stamped it. as the
work <?l Europeans, and as such th?w he
tliouirht themselves of ? to i"?' mystery.
Hein" -urvev?",*v the idea that naturally siig
il -t il was one connected with their
nrofessii.n, and to their joy the solution
?cen let 1 plain enough.. " No*'* ; nr.e chain
,..,-t two | M'l'eh1 D; 'ighted. they brought
the" in: truments into use. and nmasuringot
the distance in the required direction, and
elearin" awav with iuunciise Jabor the fallen
I imberand under* inwi l? or ?hf l>lace in order
to prosecute t Is* '.V Search, they succeeded in
rinding another stone similar in sluipe and
viz,, to the other, buried almost to the a|>cx
in the earth and decayed vegetation. Aliei
;i long task of ch aring the fne^o' tne stone,
tliev came to the 'li,'lilv " ?. clcailv and
deeply ? ut. ibre seemed an end to their
trouble. They had evidently read I he in
scription on the tii> I stone right. a? linding
the second proved; but now tV"? stared
them in the face a numViai which, though
plain in o?i?- a: -Vim', yet was as mystical as
(lie ?t.;V|S of the astrologer. The tigUlC
'? 7 " alone was there. W hat could it mean?
In fact. what might it not mean: seven
miles, yards, rod-, feet? anything in de
>.pair thev determined to uio\e tiie rock.
witMi. with iliv aVii "t iiuge levers they did?
i<iv hut the hole rewarding them
j for their labor. At last the happv
thouL'bt oecnnvd to o,i< ol them why not
" 'i " feet r No sooner was it expressed
thin a shovel wn* brolight into re
quisition, and doWVi they worked. I he mi??
i.(u-e they 'endured during the excavation ot |
those IV w feet of cailhcan better be. imagined I
than described. Hope, doubt, and lear
altcriialelv marked the faces of t lie party as I
in turn they toiled with tbr fMioVci. The
i j 1 1 ,?c iuet;i!li" rubsiance suddenly brought
;i II Vo i!;e pit, and there the person shoveling
exposed to their gaze a rusted iron ring, at
tached, as the hurried ? tl'orts of the worker
soon disclosed, to a decayed wooden box
about a foot square. On hitting the ring it
jpive way. and they did not raise their slip'
po.-ed treasure 1'ioni the earth Mni'l it was
completely looked iVom its he'd I V the use ol
Hie shovel. TliV-y found they had s< euied a
box of wood, decayed by time, but held to
et'tlier by several iron hoops, and as was
>hown by the decayed wood having
been beaten oil* in one or two
pjaces. lined with copper or other metal.
The weight satisfied them that they
had found a treasure, but of what value they
were now to ascertain, ltreuklog the box
open, there was brought to light gold and
silver coin and jewels, the bulk being silver,
and all amounting to about ?o,700. The sil
ver coin was mostly Spanish d ? liars, with
some few pieces of ancient South American
coinage; the gold was in Spanish doubloons,
and the jewelry was of silver of no great
value, with the' exception of one piece, which
contained diamond settings. Well pleased
with their adventure, the parties made an
equal division of the property and came to
the city Saturday to tell their story. Some
money is on exhibition in the windows
of one of our prominent brokers on Front
street, and a gentleman who frequents
First street, generally at Green's billiard
room, has the diamond pin spoken oft which,
bv the way. is worthy of further notice.'*
The pin is in the shape of a leaf, made ol
silver, after the old Mexican style, much cor
roded. or rather blackened, by time, and con
tains thirty-one diamonds, the largest worth
about ?;5"?. The diamonds arc rose-cut, and
of the "most exquisite beauty and brilliancy,
lie gave ?200 for the pin. Antiquarian
euriositv is rife concerning who put the
treasure there, and when, as nothing to solve
cither question was found in the box. May
not the old Spanish galleon, whose skeleton
is racked by the tides in the bay near Astoria,
and whose ribs suggest the spectre of de
parted veal's, have had some knowledge ol
who placed the iron box in its bed in the
wilderness of Oregon?
A Kcportoriikl Spy Among? Mr. Uroe
k'.v's Visitors.
Ni:\v York, July 25.? The Tribune gives
notice that, as the Times has a reporter who
conceals his calling in order to make note ot
private conversations among Mr. Greeley s
Saturdav visitors at Chappaqua, Mr. Greeley
will not" entertain visitors after this week.

uald, teamsters. No ISO Congress street, was
sent bv his employers to Stone w'harl on
Federal street with a horse to assist some
teams that were engaged in hauling stone.
Instead of going to that wharf he wandered
on to roller's wharf, which is occupied by
Messrs. N. Ward & Go. as a temporary de
I mt for dead horses, and as the youth made
Hie statement that the horse was to be^ lett
there, the em ploy ds about the premises took
the proceeding as a matter of course and killed
the animal, prei mra tory to transporting him
to Spectacle Island. As the horse did not
arrive at the Stone wharf word was sent to
the stand to know why he did not come, and
the youth was sent to find his lost charge,
lie soon returned with the bridle of the de
Ainct uitliual. The firm valued the horse at
$200. ? Bust'jn Tunes , July UK

Various are the reasons we have heard some of
our lady readers give why they like to deal at Li;\ v
BltOTItKKS1.
In the Hist piacC, they say they are eouiideiit that
they get tlieir dry goods as low, if not lower, than
elsewhere, aud, besides, have a larger assortment to
.-elect from.
Then, as Levy Brothers have lint one price,
and never deviate from it. they make their pur
chases Jiift as soon as tlie articles are found to .-.nit,
not having to chaffer over the price.
These inducements, together with being waited on
by attentive aud indite salesmen, are attractions
which our Virginia ladles know hnw to appreciate,
and account for the liberal crowd of purchasers at
Levy Brothers' dry goods estaiilUhiueiil.
