BulUlin bullion tab! for tbs first ten months of the present ynx howi tbat tbs minei produced f 19,810, 000, while in 1S78 tb mioei prodaoed $33,816,100. Tb comparison shows e deoretse ot over 40 per ont. this jeer, aud jet the average number of mines re ported has been larger than it was last year. In commenting upon the Com took mines, the Bulletin remarks: This is the smallest yield (October yield, $C1, 000) of tb California since it became nine, and it looks as though it had seen its best days for lb present, if not for ever. The product of the Consolidated Virginia i nothing to boast of, and if the whole amount was divided among stock holders it would be less than 33 cents per share. Ophir did better last month than for any month since last February. It is to be hoped that there may be soon more than three producing mints on the Cotugtockv Tan gold mines prodnosd for the month of Ootober $130,500, and nineteen silver mines $015,400, The mixed metal mines California, Con. Virgins, Ophir and Eureka Con. pro duced $578,100. The Bulletin reporter was nnable to get tb amount of bullion prodnoed by the Gila, Baymond & Ely and Vulture mines for last month, wbile other mines wsre only able to make par tial reports. Judging from the accounts of gold de posits in the Eastern and Southern States, it Is quite strange that the precious metal is not dug ont. The Mining and Soientifio Press says tbs local papers glow with the richness which exists in the soil, and the Rooky mountain and Pa Paoiflo slop mines fade into significance when compared with the treasure await ing a resurreotion, perhaps. Here is what the Alabama Times, of Columbus, says: "California and tb Paeiflo States bare so long kept the eyes of tbs gold hnnting world in that direction that tbs rich reins of the preoious metal whioh ma in broad end inexhaustible lines through Alabama bate almost bsen lost sight of. We bare often bsen told by old Californians that with the same ma chinery and effort, more gold oonld be taken from the Tallapoosa mines than from many et the most popular ones on the Pacific ooaet. In former years w knew something ol the gold veins of Tallapoosa, espcoiallof those about the oooe famous Log Pit mine, and can say that they, nnskillfilly worked, yielded many thousand dollars worth of gold. Tb Cte Indians are rather foxy. Tbey are trying to make the Government officials believe that the Mormons pat them np to eon Quitting the murders which they recently did. Tbey ought to all be hung, tbns preventing the Mor mons urging them on to again commit similar depredations. :. We really fear our friend over at Ward is irretrievable, for he spells Bible with a little " b." Be is just as bad aa Francis Rodman, ex-Secretary of the Slate of Missouri, who said. that he always spelt Christ "mid a little k." Judging from the numerous on and two-dollar assessments levied by the mining companies on the Comstook, we naturally suppose that all the "Colonels" along that lode bad a jolly old time Thanksgiving Day. Tb people of San Bernardino, who war very much annoyed by the cheek oi a book agent who bad been stopping several days in that town, generously gave the yanng man a free ride out of the town on a rail.

Gold Hill News: The erperts who wnt out to Red Canyon to spy out th land in that direction spetk well of the prospecta of tbat region. There is much ricb sold quart! on and near tbe surface, bat none ut tbe veins located have b-en prospected to any great depth. The hoisting machinery in nse in the distriot is not so complicated but tbat the prin ciple on which it operates is understood by every man who bas for even tbe brief est period of time furuiabod tbe motive power. It is thought Red Canyon will he a lively camp next Sprint;. Already there are legal squabbles of a nature so complicated tbat nobody can understand the real grounds and merits ot them. Caraon Appeal: Some years ago at Fort Cburcbill an Indian was sitting astride of a field howitzer rolling a cigar ette, when some wag stole up behind, applied a ylow match to the gun. Tbere was a treuieudous report and tbe pieoe, which was heavily loaded, made suah a recoil tbat it slid from under the savage and left him sitting on the ground. Wben the smoke cleared away be bad finished rolling the cigarette, end pulling out a match he deliberately lighted it and went on smoking. A shout of laaghter went np, but it did not eff ot tbe stolid red-skin, wbo continued sitting in the spot where he bad been landed by tbe gun, during th rest of the afternoon. A more cool proceeding than this is not on record. What Zulu discipline aud rule was is dearly indicated by a story told by Cety wayo himself wbile on bis way down to tbe place of embarkation. Pointing to a bush which he designated by tbe name of tbe Coward's Bush, be informed his conductors tbat in front of tbat busb Chaka used to sit after a battle bad been fought in order to hear acousations of cowardice against any of bis soldiers. If mm were convioted on what seemed suiucient evidence he was expected to stand still with bis left arm high abov his bead, while an assegai was slowly and by degrees tbrust downward from the armpit till it pisroed tbe heart. Letter from Afrioa. How x United State. Senator Spencer and C. P. Hall of Denver, once fought a dnel with hatchets is told in tbe Boulder (Colorado') Courier.
