The voyage of the elephants pre sonted by the King of the Belgians from India to Africa, was an eventful one. The task of slinging the bulky pachyderms off the wharf into the ship was simply enormous. A gear adapted to a weight of twenty tons was rigged, and the mammoths being got into position were safely slung ou board, and the stuamer started. Out Trt-ses-ke great "Eeasts would persist in standing .up all day and night. and the swaying of their huge bodies with the motion of the ship nearly dislocated even their columnar legs nearly fractured, also, tho tinbers of the deck. But at last they were urged into kneeling down, while a judicious addition of props kept the deck in its place, and thus the elephants got safely across the seas to Zanzibar. Then came a difficulty how were the creatures to be landed? The ship could not go nearer to the shore than two miles' and there was neither raft. nor lighter, nor any other appliance for transporting them to land. Could they swim? No one knew. There was nothing for it but to try, bo one or tne monsters its name was the Budding Lily, and it stood ten feet high was gravely dropped overboard, with a man on its back. The elephant solemnly sank until the man was under water, and then as solemnly re-appeared. One look round sufficed to explain the position to the poor beast, which, hopeless of ever reaching the distant shore, turn ed around and made frantic efforts to get on board again. In vain the mahout belabored it. The elephant kept its head against the ship's side, in vain ttiey tried to tow it beiiina a boat, for though, whtn exhausted with struggling, the huge bulk was dragged a short distance, returning strength soon enabled it to drag the boat back to tho ship. And so for an hour, rain pelting hard all tho time, the wretched mons ter floundered about in the sea, and scrambled against the ship's timbers, now floating alongside without any sign of life, now plunging madly arou nd with the ridiculous boat in tow. That it would have drowned ultimately seemed beyond donbt, but on a sudden the great thing's intelli gence supplemented that of the hu man beings who were with it, and making up its mind that life was worth another effort, and that tho ship was unscalable, the elephant began to swim. Again and again, before it reached tho first saudbank, its strength or pluck failed; but the boat was always at hand to encourage or irritate it to renewed exertions, and so at last, after nearly four hours immersion, tuo lirst behemoth got on shore. Away in the distance those watching froin the ship could make out the great black bulk creeping up the sward. Under a tree close by stood its attendant, and in the enjo3r mentof the monstrous cakes of sugar, rum, flour, nd spices which had been prepared for it, and tho luxury of a careful rubbing down with warm blankets, the Captain Webb of the elephant world recovered its equani mity and spirits- Her companions, the Flower Gar land, Beauty, and the "Wonder Inspi rer, emboldened by Budding Lily's performance, soon joined her on Afri can soil. Telluride Ores of Boulder C'oimiy, Colorado. Telluride ores are so rave, that a brief account of their occurrence in Bouldor county may not bo uninter esting. Only twice before in the his tory of mining had they been en countered in any quantity in the mountains of Transylvania and in Calaveras county, California but in neither instance in snch novelty and abundance as they exist in Boulder county. The Telluride belt, as at present known, is about thirteen miles long by three miles in width, extending in a northerly direction through Gold Hill, which is nve miles from its southerly extieinity. The country rock, which is at the northern part of the belt, is a mica ceous or gneissic schist, is in the re maining portion principally gneissic granite, All the lodes carry mineral of a simil ar character, but they may be divided into three classes, each distinguished by tho kind of rock en Hosing it, "First, lodes in gneissic Melng the richest and f mi n pr Flf-nnnd. nd porphyry, jnic:: 'pons e-j uride vein yet opened in tho country The slifrht local variations of the country rock in this belt have no ob served relation to tho contents of the lodes, differing in this respect from the telluride veins in Transylvania The most noticeable variation in tho character of the contents of some of the veins is the gradual partial sub stitution of tho sulphide species for the telluride. Telluride ores contain a large proportion of gold and silver, and are therefore very valuable. Calaverite from the Slide mine, has yielded as much as forty-four per cent, gold while svlvaulio contains about twenty-five per ceni. gold and twelve per cent silver, and petzite twenty five per cent, gold and forty per cent, silver. The Slide mine, Gold Hill, exhib its telluride ore of almost every vari etv occurring in the district. The collection weighs over 3000 pounds and includes pieces varying in size from hand specimens to lumps weighing half a ton. The latter which are from GOO feet below the surface are of the usual bluish gray quartz rock, and show the width of the "pay." The smaller pieces have been selected for their richness of variety. In some tho telluride ce curs in solid mass, free from all rocky material; in others it impregnates the rock. Sylvaniteand petzito are the most abundant varieties, with some albaite and hessito. The mine has produced some beautiful calaver ite crystals, which are remarkably rare, out none were observed in tne exhibit. Native gold occurs in tho telluride ores quite frequently, and many of the pieces on exhibition show it in tho form of wires, lumps and incrustations. News and Cour ler. Extkaoedixary Blast. There are at present some very interesting ex periments being carried out at Messrs. W. Pease & Co.'s limestone quar ries, vearciaie. The output at tne present time is estimated at 200 tons per week. The ordinary system of hand drilling has been adopted from the commencement until very recent- when a number of deep holes have been drilled by machine power. One of the holes, described and known by the quarrymeu as the Jumbo hole. has been drilled to a depth of 18 ft. , by 2 in. diameter. The hole was drilled and completed in about four hours, and by an excellent system in charging the hole, was blasted, using 450 lbs. of powder, whereby it is esti. mated that over 3,000-tons of rock has been removed, and is acknowledged to be one of the largest and most effective blasts ever known in the district, and at tho same time the output can be very considerably in creased. Tho machine employed at these extensive quarries is tho well- known Cranston patent rock drill, of Newcastle-mi-Tyne. London Min ing Journal. Patriotism not to be Brought I KTO Disrepute. A Memphis magistrate had before him' recently a young man who at a masked ball the night before had figured as George Washington, to whom however, his resemblance was so entirely superficial that ho became drunk and abusive before the night was over. The magistrate pronounced sentence in the following homely but emphatic language :''Now if you had got drunk as a private citizen, and had cussed and ripped around as such, I should have fined you 5; but inasmuch as you appear ed at the masked ball and committed the offense while personating the character of George Washington, the revered father of his country, I will have to gently stick you for 20. I won't have this patriotism business. brought into disrepute." Startling rumors of a threatened outbreak at San Carlos are rife. It is said that great dissatisfaction is felt by the Indians at tho course pursued by Crook in forcing them up to count every morning, and that an outbreak may bo expected at any time if the course is persisted in, One report even goes so far as to state that Crook has been warned off tho reserve, and that the chiefs have told him that if he does not leave the reservation he will be killed. The latest news received somewhat confirms the report. Crook has dis continued counting, giving as a easou that ho has got all on tho res ervation that are possible, and that ho now knows V ct number and who they are. xe Times.
