A new and valuable deposit of lead
has recently been discovered near Ga
lena, Illinois.
Turquois mining has for ages been
od important souroe of wealth to
Tenia.
Silver has been discovered on the
Colville river, in the northwestern p»rt
of Washington Territory.
Tnlcose slate contains a largo propor
tion of the soft mineral, Talc, and is
used for honee and scythe stones.
Another marvel recently brought to
light in the Yellowstone Park of North
America, is nothing less than a moun
tain of obsidian, or volcanic glass.
Had all the silver produced by the
United States hcen coined into stan
dord dollars for the fiscal year, it
would not have added more to the
specie circulation of our people than
seventy cents per head of our whole
population.

—Person* 'who have watched much
with sick people'at‘night, or who have
been often awake at midnight from
any cause, have not cod an unusual
number of noises at that time. Those
who are not cowardly often r.scribo
these to the blinds, the cut, or a sort
ing nail. But just now, in Novada,
an old Ruby Bill miner, who has hi-d
tiftoen years’ experience underground,
says thafho has observed one peculiar
fact, that between twelve and two
o’clock iu tho morning, if there is a
loose atone or bit of earth in the mine
it is sure to fall. About this time ho
Bays it seems that everything begins
to stir; and immediately after twelve,
although tho mine has been still as a
tomb before, you will hear particles of
earth come tumbling down, and if
thero is a caving piece of ground in .ho
mine it it sure to givo way.

In tho year loot wrs pvi - pu a work
entitled “Tho Anatomy of • ;n Dn,».”
It is a thin octavo of one hundred rod
seventy-two p.-ges, and it is accompan
ied by a list of errata of fiftc<»i pages.
Tho editor, a pious monk, informs us
that a very sciious reason induced linn
to undertake the tusk; for it is, b.'ys
he, to forestall the ar.ifices of Satan.
Ho supposes that tho devil, to miu
the fruit? of this work, employed iwo
very malicious frauds: the first, before
it was printed, by drenching tho man
uscripts in a kennel, and having re
duced it to a most pitiable state, reu
dored several parts illegible; the sec
ond, in obliging the printers to com
mit such numerous blunders, never
yet equalled in so small a wont. To
combat this double machination of
sat.m, he was obliged to careful'y re
peruso .he work, and to form this sin
gular list of rho blunders of printers
under the influence of tho devil. A'l
t.iis he relates in an advertisemc >t
prefixed to the errata- and hence in
pluaBe of “The Printer's Devil.”
