The gold found has been tested,' and its average found to be 23 carats, Ihofigh some of it is 23 1-2.

The gold ore at Copiapo is il warf a Mr bargain and done so neatly said to yield seven pounds of gold out of ,hat ,he fel,ovv "eservedlhe fifty dallars,' seven arrabag, which is equal to about one nd ,le n"w him' or the money a-twenty-sixth part. Tliin we hold to ba 6ain' ' , - incredible, or at least utterly improbable; and one of two things rhul be true, we think either that the Supply of ore is very limited, or that its richness is greats ly exaggerated. The Russian gold mines in Siberia are worked to advaiilsge when the auriferous sand yields only one seven ty-eiuhl-lhoutandth part, and under some circumstances, make remunerating returns when yielding two-tnilliohih part only. If, then, (lie supply of the ore at Copiapo be large or inexhaustible", and yields rf l enly-sixlli part of gold, thaf metal will be in danger of losing its' monetary prom inencej but of this the're is no probabili ly, we apprehend it,- j, . r.t i ., i truotltliuivn UIUV9, C' .
