out of the well last P'riday, after tle
workman had reached the depth of twea

some of it Into a pan, and at the bottom
of which, after the washing process, he
found nearly a teaspoonful of shining,
dusty particles, which proved to be the
pure precious metal, unde*, chenmial
test. Saturday afternoon lUowIng,
Mr. J. 11. Quisonbury washed gut sov
oral particles, which averaged two or
three grains each in weight. The ox

wash out the glittering treasure. Sev
oral others were successful in finding
more or less of the ore, and speeimens
of it were sent to the jewellers of Mem

ger threw up a large quanity of the
metal on Monday last, which was wash
ed from the. sand by a half dozen or
more people. Mr. Russ Evans found
three lumps, the largest of which is
valued at a dollar and eighty cents ;
Mr. Warren, blacksmith, found it nug

A Pretty Fatwy.--Taylor, of the
Chicago Journal, ays :
When the day begins to go up to
heaven at night, it does not spread a
pair of wings and fly aloft like a bird,
but it just climbs softly up a ladder.
It seots its od sandal on the shrub you
have watered these three days lest it
should perish with thirst; then it steps
o to the tree we sit under, and thence to
the, ridge of tlhe roof, to the chimney,
and from the chi nin'y to the tall elm,
F from the tall elh to the church spiroe,
and aithn l to tho cloud, and then to the
Lthreshold of hourven; and thus from
round to crimson round, you can see it
go as though it. walked upon red roses.
