City Htem.' If expert testimony, combined withl the traditional caution of British capi tal, goes for aught, the gold develop ments in Hlonduras must shortly as a tonish the world. The Item's readers have been informed of the concessions tI given by the Honduras government a to M+jor B. A. Burke; also that he is I now in London capitalizing these q grants, in order to enlarge the scope of P the work he has been for some time I carryinog on. 1ut comrparatively few a know the extent and probable value of e these franchises. u After the close of the late E:xposition b Mfjor Burke villted Honduras and ' traveled on mule back all over the lke I public, making a thorough investiga l tion of the valuable mineral wealth of, the country, especially the precious metals, and entered into several con tracts with the government of the ILe-( .publ, by whtich Ihe secured three f . valuable conceaslol,s, aloig thie rivers • SJal.on and (luyapP, inceluding lthe beds, e banke, hers and benches, with a dil II I.tance of five hundred varns (about an it a Eoglish yasd) on each Iannk of the l' river-with the exclusive right to the I gold deposits in said rivers. 'T'hu tirst I It concession is about 97 miles of the : river Jalon; the second onncession ex- I It teals about Wt miles along the (lnyapeI. I- river, and the third ,ncaonclion a)boult i a -,1usr+ miles, is known 4as theI S1tir51. n A ounmler if L.ndoni capitsliss have orrganizod a povwerlul yndicalte and it agreed ito put up a large arslount of t- cppilsl to develol the immeisse rumn a, i slon owned by .Major Rurke. I Now, as to the l'robable value of 73 these concession. In the fontdons he ,usacial News, of January ):, 51. peared a report (rom an eminent E,, gSaush mtainl engin-er, )ouglas L.. \. he i Browne, 11. '., who is noperating (for, ii a London comlpany. the extension ofI -the ,tatiro ,poa.neions, part Iof which was a grant to Gen. Level, (formerly ae nncted with the pres of thial city), ,and known as the -ni;ve Mile (One-s. lior." After. daesriMlg his experi. eonse and snrrolldiagle, Engibiee Browne gets down to esubtaetal hats follows : "Gold Ihas been obtained from this river for several hbundr~e iend those tneltaed to 1unt"nlt il 1k'teh. metn nl tlneptit at-"wmlt t geoteds of immense sums taken oul thI U aUme of the Spaniards 'nud shipped to Odt Spain. "The gold. previously obtained, aptd being obtained now, by the aati* Is but a drop in the water; they simpl pan on the sides of the stream, and get a little of the top gavel-off. No bed rock of this river has? ever. been io. On the top gravel I panned frot 10 to. 5 color of gold to the pa L ,e£d. you a sample bottle (NO. l141wth mome of this gold. I irmly blie4e that the gravel will average 76 entsn (a*+) t thbe yard, and that when westuike thi'roek bed we shall get places 060 (Li0)-tofthe pan. As far as I oasslese, the season whbih is suflielntly dry to work bhe river Is from January to July, aa, If I can get four monthb' work in the river I can return the shareholders a hiad. name dividend. "The hills on either side of the Gay ape are gold-bearlng, anud-goods by. draulloing ground can be ,ope~I , Aupt that I have not yet hal time tp Io into. The quickest way of getliag large returns e1 the bed of The stream, and to that end I have aileadybtalttI to. We now have the saw mill and all the tools necessary, and I have t, pack train of mules. "*The difftcalties in the way ar6i nit lack of gold, but to get mens to oirk, to get my saw mill up, my tools aUd materials on the ground, quarters for self sod men, dam, flame And psumps built. All this I caloulate to be, able to do in the next ninety days. I all mate to do this it will cost $:4,755 (.49'3l1). Part of the tools end mate rials are already bought, sg .£300 will complete the work. Observe next year with all our tools and 'materlials n hand, the river could be turhedfto'.les than half. I estimate that with 600 men working In the river--20 by 4ey and 2r50 by night-we will take, up, from 30000 (.C600) to #5000 (£t000) 'Pr Mdy and that a week's work' on the bed rock will repay all, cost. There Is no absolute way of estimating fetutres, but they can not be but large. the only work that has ever been dodH is that on the rim of the gravel by, we-. men with wooden batems. I byveso doubt that the gravel on the bedrock of the river will astonish every dy. The risk to be run Is heavy rainfatle; but for five months we are compara tively safe. The particular point where I am going to put in the dam Is known as Polute Veille, which will be abput 170 feet wide, and will give us 1080 feet of the river dry to work. There is a bar in the centre of our work Whieh Is rich, the surface of the bar shbwtheg 10 to 21) colors to the pan. I will send you a sketch of the work, and we will have at the widest place :10 feet of giavel to wash. "Mly impression of Hlonduras is, that it is a very rich cnountry, anti much to be done here." Since the first publication of the above report Mr. Browne sailed from Honduras en route for Loudon, aud has made an addlllonal report to the directors of the English company, and states that he can Increase the output of gold tenfold the above amount. The are (or should be) none in 1.ou isiana that will not hope there is "mitl lions in it" for Maljor Burke, as It seems morst probable there will bIe. Advice to Methers.
