The rejwrts just collected by the cotton exchanges of the leading Southern cities as to the condition of the cotton crop are very encouraging. There has been a slight in crease in the acreage planted, and the crop is generally earlier than last year.

A law suit of unusual interest is on the tapis in Massachusetts. The Legislature of that fctate, at its last session, enacted a law making the owners of property liable for any damage caused by the sale of liquor on their premise. A cae has just arisen in the city of Lynn which will serve to test the constitutionality of this civil-damage act as it is entit'ed. There is a rumor that the liquor dealers have combined for the purpose of employing General Butler to represent them in the courts; in any case, a sharp legal fight is assured. T 1 1 OS. IIYAxT" Referring to the flank movement made upon the Democracy a few days ago by Mr. Ryan, of this State, by which the Demo cratic camp was completely surprised and came near being captured, the Boston TYar tlcr says : Mr. Ryan, a Republican Representative from Kansas, almost succeeded in surpris ing the Democratic House into passing the army appropriation bill yesterday. The Democrats, seeing the possibility of having it laid to the credit of the Republican side that this important appropriation bill was promptly put on its passe, filibustered, and finlly managed to adjourn, by a vote of 10-3 to 1(m3.

The l'csf Dirpatch the most radical Democratic paper in St Louis puts the above caption over its remarks upon Sena tor Morgan's late rebel speech. Morgan has evidently put his foot in it He is pimple-minded enough to say what he thinks a species of honesty which the Democratic party cannot affjrd to indulge in at the present time it isn't quite strong enough for that yet Its belief in the jus tice of the "loot caue" is just as firm as Morgan represents it to hi, but for pru dential reasons this filth has to be kept in the back-ground, and hence Senator Mor gan is taken to task by all the more shrewd Democratic papers, for permittirg a 'pre mature ilbcharge of hi mouth.

To all appearances the "heated term" lias done its work and forced Congress to the point of adjournment The House is anxious to run away, and the Senate mani fests a disposition to second it Since the struggle over the appropriations has been transferred from the Legislative bill to an other, the members of the legislative branch have shown manifests signs of relief. Their pay is now secure against contingen cies. The Democrats propose to solve the dilemma by refusing to appropriate money for supervisors and deputy marshals; and this they claim as a proof of wisdom. Rather, it is a proof of cowardice. Every body in this world has the power to neglect bis duty, but this is the first time such con duct has been proclaimed to be a mark of merit This Confederate Congrws has given us many surprises, and this is one of them, THE NIUXAL STATIOX. An effort is being made by certain par ties to cause the removal of the United States Signal Station from Leavenworth to Kansas City. Such a change onght not to be made. A signal station, inland, is of no particular benefit to the town in which it it located, and the only matter to be con sidered is the general efficiency of the ser vice. The cost of maintaining the office in Leavenworth is considerably less than it -would be at Kansas City, because of the cheaper rents here. The meteorological conditions at the two places are always substantially the same, and there is abso lutely no reason why the change should be made. If the people ot Kansas City want a sta tion at that place, we have no objection to the Government establishing one at that point, but we do object to the office at this place being removed unless some good rea son can be shown for it and every reason that can be adduced inthis case is in favor of Leavenworth. Tbe general public is much more inter. ested in reports from Kansas, than in re ports from Missouri, and if the office :s re moved to Kansas City there will then be but one station in Kansas, which is in the extreme southwest, and does not fairly representthe meteorological conditions of the SiaU. The Dodge station the only one in Kansas besides the one at Leavenworth, is away out in the hottest, dryest portion of the western plains. If the office is taken from Leavenworth to Kansas City, Dodge will be the only station in Kansas, and all the official observations and records made in the State will be made at that point Every one knows, or ought to know, that this would do the State gross injustice. The climatic conditions of the extreme south western counties more correctly represent those of Colorado than of Kansas. The average rain fall is not a tithe of what it is throughout the State generally, and we don't want the pub lic to lorget its judgment ot Kansas, upon observations made at that point, because it would injure the reputation of the State. The office amoun's to nothing, in the way of business, to the town in which it is loca ted; simply one sergeant and his quarters That' all there is of it If there were any reason why the nation should be removed from Leavenworth, we ehould have no ob jection to its going to Atchison, Lawrence or Topeka, or to any other town in Eastern Kansas, but we protest against its removal from the State. While Kansas is attracting so large a share of public attention, and while so many people in search of new homes are turning their attention hither ward,the records of the signal service should fairly represent the meteorological and cli matic peculiarities of the State, and this would be impossible if the only station in the State were the one at Dodge City. We call the attention of our delegation at Washirgton to this matter, and trust they will use their influence to prevent the proposed change not as a matter of inter est to Leavenworth, but of justice to the State. nil i cur There is an exodus of ministerial talent from Chicago that is alaming. Within a few days Dr. Patton has accepted a call from London, Robert Collyer one from Sew York, and Dr. Harris one from Mich igan.

One of the Washington correspondents has found out that Colonel Wright, chair man of the committee to investigate the causes of depression of labor, has secured the necessary passes for a trip of his com mittee to California. The peases, accord ing to the report, were secured by a young man who wanted to go along as an attache of the committee, and who was selected on that account When Colonel Wright reaches California he will soon learn that one of the chief causes of the depression of labor there Is Dennis Kearney, but he probably won't say that in hi report. WOJIAX SFFFKACi: IX 31ASSA- CIH'SKTTS. The exj eriment of female suffrage (lim ited) which is to be first tried in Massa chusetts this fall, is already progressing through an important preliminary stage. Each woman who votes is required to pay a poll tax, and a property statement for the assessor's use is the first requisite. By carefully noting the cumber and class of those who apply for as-essment blacks, it is possible to judge pretty accurately of the spirit in which the legislative concession has been received by the fair sex. After having made such an iuvestigation in Bos ton. the Adicrtitr of that city says: Without exception those who have pre sented themselves have been won,en who have represented the wealth and culture of the city. Many of them have been po--sssed of large property; all of them have been well educated women. They do not by any means represent excluively the so called "strong-minded," but there are nuny who have been either indifferent or even in some cases opposed, but who have accepted it as a duty which must be fulfilled. So women either ignorant or disreputable have presented themselves. ALU I'AMSCI). The last of the appropriation bills passed the House on Thursday, by a nearly unani mous vote and is cow before the Senate. In place of the original rider, repealing certain laws for the protection of the ballot-box at national elections, the bill con tains a little buncombe a little dirt used as dust to cover up the Bourbon retreat in the shape of a proviso that "no mocey herein appropriated shall be paid for the subsistence, equipment, transportation or compensation of the army to be Used as a police force at the polls." This lighting is as harmless as a stage thunder storm. It does not repeal any law or im pose any restrictions. General Garfield said in the debate, that the thing prohib ited, if anything was prohibited by the sec tion, was something which did cot prevail under any law or nnder any pra tice in the country. He was quite right, also, in add ing, "furthermore, I do not know of any man in this world who is in favor of using the army of the United States as an ordina ry police force to run elections in a State." Commenting on the situation, the Chicago Journal says: The truth ithat the Democrats have been hoisted by their own petard. They entered upon this crusade against the army in the hope of making party capital. They thought to raise an issue of "Bullets vs. Ballota"on which to go before the people. They expected to succeed in placing the Re publicans in a false light as relying upon bayonet interference to control elections. In this they signally failed. The underpinning of the chief plank of the Ohio platform baa been knocked out, and to chance the figure, the right boxt of the Democracy baa been taken by the Batrablican joker. He Bepublicaw of the SeStt ought to evince aa much political eagscity as the Republicans of the House did lesterday. It is much better for the party to have an opportunity to enow in a practical that it daces no reliance uiion military in terferecce to carry the next election, and is as much opposed to bayonet rule as the Democracy could be.

John bnerman in reply to a notics ,l of his election as an honorary member of the Kansas State Historical Scciety, brings up intending incidents reliting to his con nection with the early history of Kansas. A resolution was 'pas-ed by the lloue of Renresentatives on the 19th of March, 18-jG, for the appointment cf a committe cf j three of that body to itquire into acd col- f lect evidence in regard to the troubles in Kansas. William A. Howard, of Michi gan, John Sherman, of Ohio, and Mordecai Oliver, of Missouri, composed the commit tee. The committee reached Lecompton April 18, 1S00. The inve-tigation was conducted at that place, t Lawrerce, Tecumseh, Leavennortb, Weetpo't, Mo, on steamboat on the Mieouri river, at St Louis Sew Yoik and Washington. Witnesses were brought from all parts of the territory, and of the country and a mass of testimony gathered which, with the report of the committee made a volume 1200 pages, of which 20.000 extra copie-s were printed by ordtr of the House for general distribution. The report made a nrr.fnnnd sensation acd brought Mr. Sher man and the othtr members of the com mittee prominently before the country in connection with the political agitation in which Kacss figured so prominently. That prominence Mr. Sherman has con tinued to maintain. The follonicg is his letter to the Historical Society : Treasury DErAitTMKfT,"! Washington, June 7, lfeT'J.

I accept with tIeaure the membcrchip of ycur society thti tendered to me. My appointmewt by Mr. Speaker Banks, at the first seion "of my Congressional life, on the important commit ee to investi gate the state of affairs in Kansas, was en tirely unexpected, acd the incidents of my vi'it made a more lasting impression npoii me than any other event in my life. Sud denly thrown into the midst of the contest between freedom and slavery, now happily ended, acd compelled to wit-ne-s with my own e-yes the reckle lawless, invasion of the rights of the early settlers of your State, I naturally formed a deep and strong hatred for the whole tystem of slavery which led to this injustice, and formed in my mind the determination, to which f have adhered, that I would do hit utmost to overcome principles and in3tiluliocs so utterly destructive of social order and peaceful progress. Thoe scenes nude the same impression on my mind that they did upon your early settlers; among whom 1 remember very well, and admired greatly for his courage, the president of your soci ety. Gov. Robinson. They fixed firmly upon your history an irreconcilable ho-tility to opprefsion aud lawless violence, and im nl&nted a love of liberty and social pro grei-s which must ontrilmle m inske Kan sas one of the most pros-erous, jopulous and wealthy States of the Union.

Crop-., iNewYork Times, T.J There are indications that within the next few weeks the.e will be quite an advance in the price cf silk. In fact an iccrea-e has already taken place in the value of the raw material, but has hardly icnetrated to the manufictured stock in the possession of retail dealers. The cause for this advacc? is f jund in the probable failure of the Italian silk crop of this year the severe fronts of the hpring having fatally injured the cscoousanJ also prevent ed the vegetation upon which the worms fenl from projrly developing. The same troubles have been experienced in Franee and Spain, both silk-prcducmg countries, but with these the etlectn of the frost have been less itvvre, and as the silk crop is abo ordinarly smaller, a shrinkage in these quarters does not materially influence the market 1 he other gre-at silk-produce countries are China, India and Japan, acd in these there is every promise of a fair average yield, acd, with an advance in price in Europe acd America, shipments will be made sufficiently large to partly oilset the losses in the Italian crop. The amount annually imported from the East is almost equal to the entire European production, so that the aggregate falling off maa-be put at 10 r cent o! the volume ol new silk which each year finds its way into the markets of the civilized world. This dimicuation in supply is sufficient, if other things were equal, to produce a rapid ad vance in values, but the d dice in the worth of merchandise of all kinds has had its effect upon trie price of silk, which has been steadily going down siace the sudden start given to it by the short crop of 1S7C. A deficieccv in supply will occasion at this time a falling cti in use rather than an enormous advance in price, which in years past has followed upon a bid season, acd it is doubtful whether the market at its maximum during this year will range much higher than what would hi consid ered fair prices eight or ten years ago. That Southern A"-s. St. touts Post Dispatch Deinccratlc.1 General Morgan having mads precisely the sitech wanted by the Republican dema gogues in the North and sure to do the "South more injury than fort speeches of Blaine and Chandler, it is refreshing to see the alacrity with which our venerable con temporary the Urpuhlie-tn rushes to its de fense: "ff the Southern eople," it says, "showed no respect fur 'the lost cause,' and denouccrd it as the sum of all iniquities '. if they branded themselves and their desd as traitors, and crawled in the d.'rt a the feet of the Sorth as miserable suppliants they could not be tni'teil to do what they have solemnly promised to do." Xoboely expec s Southern jieople to do anything or the kind. Th.it is not the question at all. Common interest aud common sense teach that national harmony, patriotism, love of co'intry and fraternal relations are imos jios'ible until 'bygoc' a'' are really "ny gonts," until the dtad are really dead, un til politics turn upon new i-r-u-s, not the jiasions and hatreds of the late war. Whoever tears open the-e terrible but healing wounJs, in our opinion, is unpatriotic and contemptible. We have said that dozens cf time.--, when the Zich Chandlers acd B'aices apjiealed for the war feeling of the Sorth. We soall say so as promjitly when an ass like Senator Mor gan fooli"hlv does the same in the South does what we feel certain every secsible Southern man must regret and disapprove. So honest L'ni jn man or patriotic Ameri can exjiects the Southern people to "crawl in the dirt" acd make humiliating confes sions. We want them simjily to keep quiet, say nothing about the past, and let it be forgotten. Good tact and good secse both teach that this is delicate subject ujen which the less ssid tlw better for the South. Batwhst dom Mr. Morgan say Mr. Morgan who is a Senator of the United States from the South? "lLe demand of the South was simply that these rights and guarantees should be faithfully observe!, l'hey made no iggresion upon the legal, moral, social or jiolitical rights of any other section crState. Sothing that they demanded was liable 3 jut censure." This is simply a lie, acd all the more unpardonable because its author wrote it out carefully acd did not utter it in the heat of debite, but went hundreds of miles out cf his way and out of the Senate to utter it Whatever the provocation might have been, the fire upon Fort Sumter and the deliberate opening of the civil war did not come from the Sorth, and to say, at this day, that, though the South ru-hed into war and tried to break up the L'nion, it "made no aggression upon the legal, moral, sccial or jiolitical rights of any oth er section," is simply preposterous. Again Mr. Morgan says: "It wv their homes acd their wives acd children and friends that were their (the unknown dead's) stake in the war. Their homes they defended against desecration; their wives and children against insult and humilia tion; their friends against wrong and injus tice, acd their country against invasion. For these they died. This is the whole story." But this is not the whole story by any means. If this painful subject must be discussed it must be distinctly understood that thoe men, with the highest regard for their conv.ctiocs, fought in a war agaicst their country, caued by themselves and solely oat of supposed danger to the institution cf slavery, not liberty, as Mr. Morgan claims. Bat slavery is 'the very opposite of liberty, is not the opposite of but "wrong and injustice" itself. We have been called extreme, because we sincerely believe that as a rule, Confed erates are cow better Union men than Re publican stalwarts, and because the danger to the Union cow comes from the Sorth and the Republican rebels who howl for Grant a third term, and a military, strong, centralized, imperial Republic "Bat we are equally sincere and equally plain spoken in denouncing foolish utterances and dangerous sentiments, whether they come from the South or the Sorth, whether they are made by a Republican or a Demo cratic Senator.

The astrologers are begicning to fire up and come to the front They jiarade the jierihelia cf four great placets in ISiO, as j resaging uocomu.oa wrath to the world and as evidence of the beginning of the grand saturnalia point to the war with Chili and Peru, the war in Afghanistan and Zululand, the eruption of Mount Etna, the march of Asiatic cholera westward and in due seasou will array the Kansas cyclone to their side. But that "prophet cf evil, fiend or devil" Prof. Grimmer, of Sau Jo-e, California, goes ahead of all otuers in the line of devastation, death, and the earth covered with the over-hadowing wing of the destroying angel. He id a professional aurolorer who cliinis tint his "voice is the voice of the stars" He tells us that the effects of the coming perihelia will, from JfesO to Ibv, produce "one universal carnival of death" resulting from jitsti- lence, sword, famine, revolution, wars, tor nadoes, earthquakes, volcano's and the like. America will be devastated, he says, aud further: Every drop of water in the esrih. on the earth, acd above the earth, will be more cr Ics jioisouoiH. The atmosphere will be foul with noiome odors, acd there will be few constitutions able to resist the coming scourge. There will come storms and tidal waves that will swamp whole cities, earth quakes that will swallow mountains and town', and tornadoes that will sweep hundreds of villages from the fs.ee ot the earth; the mountains will tremble and totter, acd fall into sulphurous tli-sms; thegeograjihy of the earth will be changed by volcanic action; mountains will toui their rocky heads through the choicests valleys: valleys will appear wnere moun tains formerly stood; skillful mariners will be lost on th-ocean, owing to the extreme variations of the compass; navigators will crow pale with alarm at the capricious de llexures of the needle; volcanoes that have been dormant lor centuries will awaken to belch forth their lava with more violence thin in their pristine vigor, rainfalls will deluge valleys and the; mountain stream will enlarge their beds and become mighty torrents; fires will start spir.taneuHy acd devasalte whole forest"; great fires will occur in many cities. This, in its line, is a li'tle ah'ad r.f any thing yet jiredicted. If it all takes place it will be "a clover" year fur newspapers lejiorters. But the jirofessor first iocs to work aud poisons every drop of water, and then gets up wars, and other dreadful thirgs in wt.ich we are all to figure. But how we are going to war after teirg ki.Ied with jioi-on, and how we are to get atari; in marches and sieges without wa'er ths professor fails to explain. Pcihsjis he de jiends upon lager beer. Such stutl as this furnishes witerial for the superstitious and "many a grusome tale" for stijieranuated females cf ' the cfl color, but to the eye of a living minnow they are a dead sardine. The perihelia of these planets occur about every oce hundred years, and history don't mention (trimmer's calamities as si multar.cjus. They occurred in ViO'2. If he ill establish the legend that the Conti nent of Atlantis actually excited between South America and Africa, and that it sunk when S'orih America roe from the sea, and that the position of these planets was in ierihelion at that time, then he may induced ieojle to jiiy up their debts and prejiare for a jitrmacent change of veuue. The Itomaii..- ur -llovins into the Country. i'liiledelplila Times. There is a good deal of romance about moving into the country for the summer, getting away from the hot, dusty town icto the pure, fresh air, beneath the sun-lit skies, amid-t the waving tree", purling brooks, docile cattle, green meadows and things of that sort there is a good deal of romance about such a change, acd its im mediate effect is to stir the slugguh blood into new life and to arouse into vigorous acivity the generous impulses of the heart. This is the jioetical and also tne popular view of the situation. But jiracticaj jieople are more than ready to affirm that there is about moving into the country a good deal of sober reality. Iu ticint ol Uct, micration bevond the urbsn bounds is broidly divisible'into three distinct stages of misery of getting ready, of going, cf settling down. Some philoso jihers add as a fourth stage the miery of staying in the country afier you get there. Leaving out ot consideration this contin gent misery, and also the enormous amount ot worry incident to determine ujion a suitable place to go, worry that sets in about tee middle ot March acd lasts, generally, until the be ginning of June, there is in the matter of packing np aloue enough ot tribulation to make the average strong man collapse ut terly in b sly m.d in ruled. This is on the bi,is that you have taken an "eligible su burban residence, furnished" "furnished," heaven save the mark! acd have to carry with you as full an outfit of necessaries and of luxuries as though you were about to l the hero of a shipwreck upon a desert island. If you are going into the country to board, the tribulation is scarcely less. You are to be cramped up in oce or two rooms acd forced to make soul-harrowing decisions as to which of your home com forts you shall take with you and which leave behind. It is a cottceable fact that some evil mischance invariably hinders your departure on the duly appointed day. When everything is packed at last, aud your town habitation is torn to pieces and utterly uninhabitable, the "strawberry g"irm" comes or the baby falls ill, or your maiden aunt from Boston the aunt who has promised to remember you In her will and is cot a person to be trilled with sud denly swoops down upon you. And for days you and your whole house are as pa riahs and outcasts and go about sorrowing. The journey out of town, when finally ac complished, is tempts nous. Either the car riage is not on time, or the man who is to come for the Inggage is late or even forgets all about you and does cot com at all, or you go to the org station, acd so fail to make a connection with the farmer's wag on ; one or the other of a hundred possible mischances certainly comes upon you, acd the expedition ends in vexation of the pint and exhaustion of the fiuh. of Broken diwn with weariness and worrv, sleep seems to be the sweetest blessing ttm Niole ImJ in all the world and jut a'loui me least attainao;e. It vou are in your "furnished" hcu'e the utter absence of theets and pillowxases probably will be lae (.lamauDj; block ln ine ath leading m ,t i -- i i? , . powerful klluence in keenice vou awake, and the mislaying of the valL-e con taining all the night-gowns will not tend to make the way to slumber any easier. And, wherever you are, you will be disturbed by the novelty of your surroundings, by the I-a.itive discomforts and by the negative abtence of comfort', all contrasting so sharply with what you have been accus tomed to inthe quiet and peace that nor mally obtains in yenr own house. Acd Ihis is the movins thak is raid to nartake of the nature of rom-nce '. So, there is cot much romacce about moving icto the country, ft is all very well to get away from the hot, dusty town into a jiure atmosphere, and into close jirozimity to birds and brocks and beasts acd gieen trees and the like, but such a pasge is not romsn'ic nor while it unde niably quickens the ilow cf the blocd has it anything whatever to do with arousiog icto vigorous activity the generous im-pul-es of the heC (ui'e the reverie.

Gov.St John recited the accident which had broaght him before the Convention, and in a humorous manner told the conver sation which had passed between the Mayor acd himself. He was very happy in his remarks, and was cordial in his greeting. He extended a hearty welcome to each acd all, with the freedom of the city, acd as.- aured the editors that it was, the wish of the pejple of the city, for whom he spoke, that ineir guesu snouid tuny enjoy tneir visit It had been their aim to supply all with such conveniences and to extend those hos pitalities which were possible.

Alma, Park Co., Col A. Cook, K ti. SO Dearborn street Chicago Dear Uncxe : As yon are desirous of obtaining my ojiin on acd views ou mining matters generally in Colorado, I will.to the best of my ability, give you a plain, unvarnished statement of facts. During my ten years' mining expe rience in this State, f have worked more or less in pretty much all of the important camps. I was employed in California Gulch a few years ago, and cimjied in what is cow the centre cf Lradville. At that time carbon ates and Leadville were unknown. Doubt less I have frequently handled the seem ingly valueless mineral, never dreaming of its intrinsic value. As I have been lately working in some of the crack mines of Leadville, I think, should I ever ercouufer carbonates, I would h.tve no ditcrulty in recognizing them. Leadville is undoubtedly a remaikab'y rich and wonderful camp, jiossessing mjny rich acd valuabla mines. Rut it also con tains a large number of worthless ones I can mention a dozen mines on Caibonate Hill, enjoying good reputations, that do not jity exj-enses. Some few on Fryer Hill are yielding largely acd prtatabl ; but, as there is only one stratum or layer of niiner a', and the ground is easily worLetl, it is only a question of a yesr or two to com pletely work out the'oOO by 1,003 feet.which is the siza of a claim. Tee Iseadvilie pi pers, Here jubilant a lew wicks ago, owing to the Peodery shaft striking mineral below the outcroji. This, they jiroceeded to jirove, showed conclusively the existence of more than on: mineral layer. . he fact is (and 1 my.-elf worked on the outcrji j is: above the Penderyi in-tead of being really an outcroji, the vein, or contact, tooK a dtji the other way. We, who knew liovv the can tact turned over, were sntisfied that the Peu tlery shaft would uhimitely strike the con tact, acd looked for i;;ihijI being struck several weeks before it actually esreurred. The minei in the vicinity cf Leadville are held at figures tar bsjond their aetuil wcrth. Some that are valued at ?2000tK) would be considered well sold if they real ized 500,000 in another locality. The Fryey Hill consolidation certainly embrzees tev- eral coed mines ; but, as it t strcked at $20,000,000. I think the dividends will not only lie very small, bat, like angels' visits, lew and lar between. 1 would not like to give 10 per cent for the stock value. I Mining is often called a lottery ; acd ro it is to a certain extent. Bat tnt4re j nze would be drawn if a little more precaution was exercised in making inv.stments. Whenever there is a fcter-heit exci'eni?u in a new camji, mining jir.ijierty will stll for ten times the figure that enn benb ained fnr it after the caciji h siin -rid d wa Purchasers generally p-y about ore-th:rd more for jirojerty than the ,nginal owner gets, ihe bslicce goes to the middle man who ojieratcs b-tw-'n btiter acd seller. l'xperts (compo-ed m'.itly of theoretical miners) are frequent sent out to report on jirojierties. Some few made gtod, fair re lKjrts ; but the maiorit7 make them Utt teiing or otherwise, according to the abili ty of the owners to pay fjr them 1 jiersonally know ot several instances where worthlets jin.perty w made to apjiear exceedingly vsltiah.e. Of course the interested parties wore well able to jiny for such rejiorts. The jnor jros jsctor may di-cover a really good mine; hut, as he jiossesses neither money cor in lloence, he cannot work his projierly ad vautageously or find a purchaser. Ccci sionally an ojieraior will rome alorg acd bond the mine (worth trlOCOO) fir sav 5 000. and finally sell it for ilOOOJ Jr J20 000. Thus both buyer ani seller ?ie cheated, and the middleman (ihe Granger's fo) is the only oce benefited. There are many mices in Colorado wh'ch barely pay exjienscv, but which, if jirojierly managed, would yield good returns. You see the presidents ar.d directors frequently have a number of jioor relatives to provide tor, and, wr.ei they are lound tibe rxr fectly useless lor anything else, they are sent out here to takechargecf a mice. As the new msnager dees not wish to have a foreman who knows any ciote than himself, he iiroctires the services of some oily- tongtied fellow who his foresworn ork. and, between the two, the management is disastrous to the stockholders. 1 only returned lrom Ial'ill! yester day, and can sately affirm that the popula tion has decrea-til one third during the lijt three months. The fact is Iieginnirg to be realized, that the growth of the town, and every business was overdone. It will be a good camp for a year or two yei; but, when settled down, nfttr the ei'-itementhna abated, two-thirds of the buildings will be trnoccujiieJ. Rnts for a time were simjily exorbitant. Two months' rent was suffi cient to defray the cost of construction e.f a majority of the buildirgs. The demacd fcr buildings: was in exten of thesupjily, but it is not so now. If I wished to make a mining investment I would jirefer Park county to Luke coun ly. (hie rea'oa is, there is no excitement in Park county, and property can it ob tained for reasonab'e (trices. I firmly be lieve that, if th" eacie amount of capital was invested, and half tlieipi mtiiy ,,f j.ros. Iiecting done, there would be more pajicg mices than 1-ieadville contain-. The mineral of Park county averges a much higher grade than it dries in Lak . Unfortunately, at Ihe jireent time there is not a smelting works tunning in the c un tv. Consequently the ore has tob chipped to Denver or Golden City, acd this entails a cost en the jireslucer of from S10 to $12 jer ton for freight. Leadville lias seven or eijht smelters right at her door. The Park county mices are all in blast ing ground, and are, in consequence, more exjiensive to work ; but the ore being mcch richer fully compensates for the co-t of extraction. They may not jiay quite so large a dividend a some of the carbonate mines, but they will still he productive when the carbonste legion is exhausted. There are lots of slightly developed claims in this county, hicti, fur the amount of work done on them, look very j.rcialsing ; but, as the owners are without exception poor men, they are unable to of en them up. Here they can te bought fur from $100Oto$0,0W;in Le,d7ille they would sell at from $20,000 to S70 0j0. This looks like a wild statement, bat I jdedge you my word it is correct. Ore milling forty ounces is considered pretty fair mineral in Lake county ; in Park it will not pay for hauling. One hun dred ami fifty ounces is hih grade in lead ville, but nothing bhf in Alma.
