JB®*The Saw Mills in this vicinity are kept running night and day. There is a great and constantly in-* creasing demand for lumber of various kinds, especially for the use of mi ners. The sawing of blocks for sluice bottoms has become a very important branch of the lumber business, and several mills are almost exclusively devoted to it. Fbldspar.—This mineral is found in considerable quantities at different points in this vicinity. Next to quartz it is a leading constituent of granite and other rocks. According to Ure it consists of silica, alumina, potash, lime, and oxide of iron, and is much used in porcelain and pottery manu factures. It is also used in the man ufacture of artificial teeth. Fire. —There were two alarms of fire this week. One originated in Cbinadom and frightened everybody, but did no good ; the other was caus ed by the ignition of a whiskey barrel in a saloon on Main st. Report has it that the fire burned through the barrel and was put out by the whis key, the spirit of the latter not being tre-men ju-ous enough to flare up at a trifle. The Mines. —The Bloomer Com pany cleaned up $9OO last week. Another interest has been sold in these claims for $6,000. The ma jority of the miners on San Juan hill are not washing at present, being en gaged in cutting the granite, laying sluices, &c. Mr. J. P. Oimstead, who formerly conducted the San Juan Star , has struck ravine diggings in this vicinity which prospect four bits to the pan. “Star wane.” Cherokee. —Active preparations are making for the advent of the next rains. Upon their arrival the Mi ner’s Ditch Company will introduce water through the old Grizzly Ditch, and thereafter a steady supply will be afforded from one end of the year to the other. This will give Chero kee a fresh start, and fill her homes and cabins with wealth and smiling faces. Camptonville —All the compa nies who are washing at this locality arc doing well. In some instances the miners are shoveling the old tail ings into their sluices and making from $4O to $5O per day. We have a selfish reasou for wishing our Camp tonville friends good luck and plenty of it; they patronize the Hydraulic Press more liberally than any other town outside of San Juan. Cabin Visited. — The cabin of Mr. J. G. Alexander, a miner on this hill, was visited some time last week by thieves, who overhauled a trunk for valuables—found none, and helped themselves to what blankets they needed. As Mr. Alexander had just been paid several thousand dollars for his diggings, the thieves no doubt ex pected a good haul, but were disap pointed. A Heavy Load. —Peter Mercer last week hauled into this town from Marysville, for Seely, at one load with six mules, 11,226 pounds of merchandize. This is stated to be the largest load for the number of animals that ever crossed Wood’s Bridge. The same team took the mremium at the lato State Fair, and Mercer sold it on his return for $2,900. J. Antrim, the photogra pher and ambrotypist, who has been operating in this place for many weeks past, has gone to French Corral. We commend him to the citizens of ihat«place as the best artist in his line who has ever been on the ridge. A Significant Item. — A short time ago wo noticed that Capt. Por ter, at Los Angeles, was carefully packing some grapes for exportation to New York, as an experiment. Judging from the following, which we find in the Union , he need not fear a failure: “There has been a great arrival at the Astor House of California grapes. Several boxes came up in the steam er, and the excellence of the fruit, and the good condition in which it arrived, indicate that the grape trade mat yet be an important one with tku Paste State.” Where the Improvements comb from.-—Under this head, a San Fran cisco paper, the Pacific , dilates upon a fact which was noticed some time since in this paper, to wit: that the miners of Nevada county hare origi nated successively all the chief im provements in mining which have been or are now in vogue throughout the State. The first great improve ment was the introduction of the “long tom,” though we beliefs this is not a California invention; and this naturally led to the idea of “ground sluicing.” “But to run tho sluice and fill up the “riffles” with the yellow dust, as well as to furnish water for dry dig gings, ditches were surveyed and dug, which at once extended and multiplied mining operations in dry as well as wet seasons. For the first sluice and the first ditch the State is indebted to Nevada genius and en terprise. Progress, however, did not stop here. It was soon found out that there was a vast extent of mi ning ground that contained gold, but which could not be made to yield suf ficiently fast for the realisation of ‘big profits,’ by the comparatively slow processes of ‘long toming* and ‘ground sluicing.’ Matteson, with a small wooden pipe, subsequently im proved, by a smooth lining of tin, to lessen the friction of the water, fur nished the idea that has grown into the ‘hydraulic hose’ engine now in use. We may call it an engine, for it has power sufficient to wash down mountains, and sluce off bills, to order and to time. Matteson was a Nevada miner, and his first hydraulic opera tion was on American Hill, at that time in the corporate limits of that famous city.” Within the last year or two gal vanized iron pipe has been used in hydraulic mining, though we are in formed that it was first employed in another county. Mr. Lowe, of this town, has increased its efficiency by inventing a “distributor,” which is attached to the end of it, and to which the flexible directing hose is coupled. The Pacific concludes its interesting article with a reference to the new process of bank blasting, and says tjhe miners “have taken gunpowder and are now mining a la earthquake,” “This ‘gunpowder plot’ is an idea of Ban Juan miners. San Juan is in Nevada county. What next from that region ?” HEW THIS WEEK. VARIETY STORE. Cigars! Tobacco ! Cutlery ! Playing Cards I Confectionery ! FEES H FRUITS!
