Here in aone this very town was discovered the pro- the b cess of amalgamation now in use to-day but t by which all the precious ores dug from shade the mountain are made to yield their over silver. Yes, more, the very hacienda is ~p still worked and profitably, in which, roars in 1867 Senor Medina made that dis-. I covery ao valuable to Mexico. Senor get e Medina haspassed away, it is presumed, "It's but his memory stilllives. The English u colony comprises about 250 men women and children, from the mining district 81igj of Cornwall. The first Cornish miners PhiL came here about fifty years ago, intro- you ducing English machinery and modes of you working the mines, much to the benefit valu of the owners. Some of the original "q number are still living, though very few, wha h and all here now agree as to the health- ta fulness of the climate as a place of resi-ed 1 dence for English people. ed t Though some of them have acquired unde wealth and some have retired to old get England with enough and to spare, the botl majority have earned little more than a und living. Precarious propersy are these " mines, except in exceptional cases. The " most noteworthy of all the instances of ly ce poor men striking it rich is that of the to ii Santa Gertrudis mine, which is now "in and bonanza," it had been successively work ed and abandoned years and years ago, garl and was finally "pronouneed"-or sen taken to work-by a Cornishman who " has just died. It's Forming a small company in 1877 he cok commenced active work. After it was ble proven that the mine was paying he sold use out his share-nine-twenty-fifths-for bro b $16,000. Since then one-twenty-fifth all. - has sold for 880,000, the present price per bana or share. This would give at that agj rate $720,000 for what he got but $15,000 for. The mine has been "in bonanza" the now for three years, and is yielding lig about 3000 cargas of 300 pounds each of gu e metal weekly and giving a clear profit pre of $1000 per day. From June, 1877, to he March, 1881, the mine produced $2,000,. ly 000 and declared thirty-two dividends of In $20,000 each-$640,000. In June, 1877, ree there was but one shaft of sixty varas (a he vara is a little less than a yard); now the im deepest shaft is 120 varas. There is a ev ED powerful pumping and hoisting engine, Ihe ED many large buildings and all the appur- th rid. tenances of a mine in this section, all fre paid for. With all this profit, present wi n and prospective, all the ore obtained here is sent to be reduced to Regla, a 81 ,in distance of seven leagues. This mine, ra S. which is located less than two miles Cl from the centre of Pachuca, is owned gi principally by men who were poor at pc , the time they commenced to' work it. he ce There are, it is said, two distinct lodes, he ruuning parallel and less than fifty yards 1, from each other. At first the vein work- u ed was only a vara wide, but as d od they went down they found a cavern ai fd illed with "metallic slush" twenty-four th u feet wide. They were at first compelled - to timber around a great deal for the A TH sake of economy, taking out merely ly at- enough tomeet current expenses. What of remained was "pure black sulphnrts, in he which exhumed globules of native silver ai e when exposed to fire." One can trace hi ml. the silver lode as it crops out above the ni me, surface and tuns diagonally across the hills; and if appearances are good for te eV anything, the two new mines of Dr. h able 8killton, the Santo Tomas el Nuevo and v t the Santa Catarina, to the west of Santa tl Gertrudis, are right in the silver track. se SWe visited these letter, which are at I5 f present operated by the old-fashioned M- exican mode, the metal Ueing brought fi Son up in bullock skins by long ropes of mag- t co,- ney fibre wound about a large drum op- a Serated by mules or horses.

This is the amount declared on good authority -to have been extracted from the Rosari mine since it was started in 1850, and . the books show that there has been paid $500,000 per share in dividends.
