:
Deep Mines. —The deepest shaft we be
lieve jyet dug as a mine, on the Pacific Coast,
is that at Weayerville, Ca!., dug by Sites, and
known as "Sites' Deep Hole!" This "great
bore" is 660 feet in depth, anfl, when it. was
completed, wag perfectly dry, notwithstanding
ordinary prospect holes iu the immediate vi
ernty contained a foot,or two of water at
twenty feet from the surface. Gold was found
the whole distance from the top untfl they
struck "bed-rock'' at the l dttom, but nothing
that would pay for work. The deepest mine
in the world, is in Bohemia, at a place called
Eselschacht, which is 3778 feet below the
surface of the earth. The deepest below the
sea level is a coal mine at Newcastle, England )
running down beneath ihe water 2000 ft.
" I RON -Cl. A D8. "— This is the name we hear
applied to the immense cellars—or " Root
houses," as they are termed in Oregon—in the
rear of nearly all the stores and business
houses in Bannock. They are constructed
by digging a large, square pit in the ground,
aud covering it with timber in the shape of a
house roof, after which earth is heaped upon
*t until it is considered fire-proof. In these
are kept all the goods that are not wanted for
immediate use in store. An excellent precau
tion we think, as it is not at all probable we
hall escape the common fate of all mining
towns that have preceded us on this coast,
with regard to fire.
Pictorials. —Mose, who keeps a variey
store opposite the Internaaional and near the
Pike's Peak Saloon, sent us a bundle of pic
torials, of which he keeps an assortment on
hand. "4
Talk of a Vigilance Committee. —Some
excitement prevailed in the city and adjacent
mines, for a day or two after the shooting of
Janies Pinney by Thomas Fitz Hue, and
many were in favor of organizing a vigilance
committee to try the case outside of the forms
of law. Better counsels prevailed, however,
and it was considered w^st to let the law take
its course and abide by the result.
