The extent of country in which .it is ascertained to ox i"Jdt,eztends soiie iwo hundred miles north and.ilouth. 'ind some sixty east and west; andise. limits are every day enlarging " e discoveries. On. the streams *bire the gold has been subjected to the -ction of water and sand. it exists in fine Araiis;' on the bills and among the clefis Sthe.1ocks it is fund in rough, jogged pIeces of a quarter or, half an ounce in ,,weight, and sometimes two or three ounces. At present tfie people are running over be.country and picking it out of the earth bere and there, just as a thousand hogs, let loose in a forest, would root up ground nuts. Some get eight or ten ounces a day; ad ~the least active, one or t wo They .make, the most who employ-the wild In iaans to .hunt it for them. . There is one +aUwho has sixty Indians in his em 'ploy; his profits are a dollar a minute. The wid .lIndians know nothing of its value, wonder what the'pale faces want to do vtt it; they. will give an ounce or it for. the same weight of coined silver, or a thim ble full of glass beads, or a glass of grog. And. white men themselves often given an -onoe of 'it, which is Worth at our mini eighteei dollars or more, for a bottle of -trandy, a bottle of soda powders, or a Plug of tobacco. As tothe 4iantity which the diggers get. takei a' few fat as evidence. I know seven inen who worked seven weeks, and t*odays, sundays, excepted-on'Feather river; they employed on an average fifty Indians, and got out in' these seven weeks -ad. twa day two hundred and seventy five.pouos of pure gold. I know the imen; have seen the gold, an'd know what they staeto be a fac-eo.stick.a pin there.. I know ten.other.men who work ed ten days in company, employed no In. T" dians, and average in these ten days fifteen hundred dollars each; -so stick another pin there.
