Eastern capital is forcing its way into our neighboring State ot Sonorit. A mining company composod of some of the first capitalists of the East lias recently been formed in New York, for the purpose of develop ing some of the rich mines situated in the district of "Planchasde Plata" iu Sonora Mexico, and we under stand the undertaking is being push ed with vigor. To give our readers na id'?a of this famous district, we give below the report ot Mr. Howard Schuyler M. E. which has been translated from the Spanish for tho Herald by Mr. E. Junj,erman of the U. S. Military Telegraph Office. The Arizona range of Mountains which contains the famous district ot' mines, known as the Plancha de Plata, is by no means a recent dis covery. It is 120 years since these famous mines were discovered, a fact well authenticated in the archives of Spain and Mexico, and many have been the efforts to obtain and hold possession of them. The mild climate, the fertile val leys, the hills covered with grass and timber and an abundance of the puie:t mountain water for both man and beast, made it a country select ed by the Apachss as their home and which was only wrested from them by the most desperate efforts. In 1871 Mexico succeeded in subjtc.ing and removing tiiem, although since that time they have returned iu suffi cient numbers to harrass the few who had been courageous enough to pros pect there. At the pie ient time ev erything is quiet, the Indians have been removed to distant reservations, and the prospectors who have been working there during tne past few years have not been molested. The history of these discoveries is not a matter of pure tradition. The actual petitions of the discoverers for the return of the silver, which the officials of the King confiscated, are matters of history, and borne out by the archives which have been seen and read by many. Iu the year 1835, Mr. Ward, Minister of the British Gov ernment to Mexico, made a special report of this district to his Govern ment. An old Spatiish work, entitled " The Zealous Apostles of the Socie ty of Jesus," (pp 232 to 237, vI. II, chap. II) has the following regard ing the discoveries of the Planchas du Plata: " Thcro was discovered in 17o!t, in the Apache frontier, in the region known as the " La Arizona," to the north of the Presidio of Altar, and distant from there forty leagues, injthe. vicinity of Agua Caliente, a region of untive silver. A Yaqui In dian made the discovery, and com municated the same to a trader who made it public. lie made the dis covery in the vicinity of n wood which extended nearly a mile from that point. Tho.-e who were present, explored the ground to the depth of a tew varus, aud louml pieces or pure silver weiirhinsr from 1 to 50 pounds. Afterward, other pieces were found weighing 500 pounds and one piece was found by a native of Guadalajara, weighing 3,500 pounds, which had to be reduced to smaller dimensions before it could be trans ported. The finding of such enor mous riches, soon brought together a large number of people who excavat ed the earth iu differeut directions. Some found smaller chunks, than those above mentioned others merely grains of silver and others again found nothing." The foregoing is also cited in the statistics of the State of Sonora. "Jose Francisco Yalesco, Mexico, 1850.,'.(P, 10) contains the following: " Prom the foregoing you can eas ily understand that this impor tant placer of pure silver has its ori gin from soaie very rich vein or ledge which mitf-t exist in the neigh boringmonutaius because all of them contain more or less mineral. The truth of this discovery is not only au thenticated in the history to which I have referred but also in 'Las Ocias Espanolas' and in the writings of the archive cf the umskmse-f 'Titufiia AlU." Latter in the year 1817 Don Pioni sio Rubles of the pueblo ot Kayon to gtther with an expedition cf 200 men started for said district with the intention of discovering the richness of these deposits. They took their departure and soon after arriving there commenced a thorough exaui iraliou of the surrounding country. They made excavations, the former excavations having in the years which had elapsed become filled by debris. Although they found de composed quartz, which is an indica tion of native silver, they did not the good fortune to find large or even small pieces of silver as often proceed from the smelting furnace, when we are running silver bar. They only found one strip of puro silver, weighing three pounds which passed to the possession of Koblea, aud from him to that of Lorenzo Martinez, who gave it to the author of these notes. He kept it for the Mexican museum, but before he had the pleasure of donating it, he show ed it to his friend Don Ygnacio Zer miga, who was going to the capital and at his desire he gave it to hint to deliver there. This was done, for ia the year 1835, when the author visit ed the museum at the City of Mexi co, he there saw the same strip of sil ver. From the preceding it is easy to be convinced that there was no doubt of the existence of these enor mous masses of silver in " La Arizo na," and if the expedition of which we have just spoken, did not find them, they proved nothing to the con trary, considering they were only eight days in La Arizona, when they observed large parties of Apaches surrounding them for an attack that caused them to break camp and leave very quickly. History and tradition agree in confirming the discovery of large bodies of silver in La Arizona and vicinity. It is said that the Mili tary Commander of the Presidio of Altar in 17U9, gathered the silver in large masses claiming it as a treas ure that appertained to the King and accounted to him for what he hail done. The interested parties made reclamation but failed to obtain a favorable response, they then had re course to the tribunal of Gunda'ajra, who referred it to the court at Madrid Seven years thereafter the King de cided that t!iis sil-er belonged to his royal domain, and that they had only worked for his sole benefit etc. Continued Sext Wednedoy. The Tiptop Mine. It beems from letters ftad articles published in the Mining Record of Xew York, that considerable of tho stock of this company is held by per sons in the east, and they are at a loss to know why a mine that is yielding 40,000 per month should not pay dividends. We have mads inquiry into the management of the Tiptop Co.'s affairs, and find that the great reason why the mine has not been a paying property is simply owing to the fact that it is a hard and expensive mine to work, nnd was in the bining, under the former Superintendents, badly handled. The mine is a true fissure veia with perfect walls; the lead :s f an avtr age of thirtr inches, of which prob ably not more than six iiichos are se lected and worked at the mill, tn miles distant. The low grade or is being saved, and will, at some fnture lime, undoubtedly be worked. Tr keep the mill running, 110 miner are employed and about ten men at the mill. Add to this those who pack the rock, haul the wood, do the cooking, laundry, etc., and you have at least 200 persons who receive pav from the Tiptop Company, which of itself exhausts one half of the Month ly income. Thereis now to be ad ded the expense of quicksilver, salt, chemicals, wear and tear to the machinery, tljo loss on bullion, ex pense of shipment, etc., which con sumes much of the other $20,000 per month. One yar ago the mine was in debt $S0,0bj, all of wllch liasheea paid, and there is now inthe treasnry aliotit $20,000. The mino has prop erly opened roads built ami every thing put in shape so that the ex penses can be greatly reduced iiud there is no reason perceivable why the mine should not pay dividend s' and its stock go up to be several dollars a share. Mr. Webber, the present superintendent, is acknowl edged to be an efficient mining man and from his close attention to bus. i.iess we believe the mine cannot other than prosper and become one of the best properties in Arizona, which ia saying considerable. Jfintr All of the members of the Pacific Coast delegation have left Washing ton, aud most of them art- already en route across tltf outiticnt for their re-petti' e huuifi.
