LATE LETTER. FROM LKBIHI.
We are permitted to publish the following,
which is the latest information we have from
Leesburg. The letter came by Adams, Good
rich & Co.'s Express, in 6ix days from Lemhi.
The writer is well known in Centerville and
here. We give his own words :
Leesburg, June 17, 1867.
Friend Haskell ; —I have been nine days
in this misrepresented country. It is still
winter here, and is likely to remain winter all
summer. We had a Miners' Meeting here yes
terday, to amend the mining laws. Hereto
fore a man could hold one hundred claims by
working one in a district. Now each claim
has to be represented four days in each week.
There are about two dozen claims paying over
expenses. Some Idaho boys opened ground,
at a heavy expense, which pays from three to
four dollars a day. An Idahoan named Mc
Cafierty sold to some boys one interest for one
thousand dollars, when the snow was on the
ground. They have since abandoned the claim
and gone back. The country has no appear
ance of mineral resources. From surface to
bedrock is a mass of nigger-head boulders. As
yet I have not seen any quartz gravel. The
Idaho merchants and miners are greatly disap
pointed, as they are out and injured. The
country is going and will soon be gone. Crowds
are leaving for Montana. Hundreds say they
would return to the Basin were it not for John
Chinaman not leaving a vestige to live on.
Drive them out and you will have a more flour
Marion Moore, with his usual great energy,
is working two or three sets of claims, which
he has just got open. Jobu Keenan and Hayv
thorn are sick of the camp. John Easley says
it is a humbug, but is goiug to try to make the
thing go till Fall. Mr. Isaacs and McGraw
are here, and look hearty. C. Clark, one of
the most prominent merchants here, has sold
his store to Miller & Berustiel. Everything
is overdone. Flour is from $8 to $ 10 per lOo
lbs. ; beef, 20 to 25 cts. per ib. ; oysters, $1 per
can; duck pants, §2 per pair ; gum boots, Jill,
50 per pair ; leather, §6 50, and everything
else in proportion. Lawyers, miners and mer
chants all ranch themselves, so that hotel busi
ness is played out. Board is $15 per week,
meals $1. I have not seen $100 since I have
been here. Every one seems broke. I would
say to one and all, stay where you are. The
whole country seems a mystery—one half
blown up by eruptions, and a pity the other
half wasn't blown away. Your friend,
