It is a curious incident that so many thousands of men should have crossed those mountain,) on there way to the Pacific slope and not discovered any, or sM'-"ly any, of the vast number of mines which were as rich as the ones lliev were going to.

' Late advices from Northern Texas say that cotton is maturing earlier than usual this year, owing to a lack of rain.

The St. Louis and Chicago dailies to hand have lengthy articles upon Albert Lindell conveying suspicions as to his death. In view of the gra vity of the matter and the genera! in terest felt theiein a Gazkttc reporter was dispatched yesterday to investi gate his habita of life while hero and facts in reference to his death, as to whether there was any foundation for the charges. Dr. Scssel, the attendant physician, refused most positively, to make any statement. If his evidence ia needed in court he will go before a notary public and make his statement. lie ,' then managed to say that he had been ' called to attend on Mrs. Davis who was suffering from rheumatism and that at her request he had examined Albert, who was far gone with con sumption, both lungs being badly effected. lie attended on the deceased also for six or seven days before his death.' At the request of Mts. Davis and with the consent of Dr. Davis lie made a post mortem.. lie then ia most positive terms refused any. state ment of what he found to be the con dition of the body, or the internal or gans. In reply toa questiou he re fused positively to state what dispos ition he made of the viscera, whether they were sent with tl:c body or wore buried here. lie was not .asked as to the mental condition of the de ceased but volunteered the statement that he luid devoted much time to the study of iusanity and that his opin ion would be given only in court. Mr. Patterson's Statement. C. E. Patterson's attorney, made out the deed signed by Albert Lindell and was acquainted with the deceased and his mother, Mrr. Davis. The lat ter he considered a most devoted mother who gave up all the comforts of home to folic w her son to this new wild country. The prosperity to drink was inherited by the toy and his mother had cci:;e out here to get him away from his associates: She had also purchased him every thing he de sired on a promise cf reformation, but these promises so earnestly made were broken the moment he was out ot her sight. Dr. Davis went to Leadville a year i go to invest in a mine and live mon ths ago Albert expressed a desire to go there. To this his mother con sented, hoping much for the change, lie came on to Mauiton Spi irgs, then to Trinidad and finally to this city. He expressed a desire to go or. a ranch and his mother was preparing to buy one, when his health failed so as to forbid such a move. He talked about deeding his property to his mother, his dislike for his brother Jesse Lind ell being one reason for it. lie was apparently as sound mentally, at the time the deed was made, as ever. Dr. Davis did act come down from Leadville until a few weeks before Alberts deaths and rented and fur nished the Wagner house, and moved in about July 20. Up to the (hue Al bert washable to be up apart of the time, unddid not appear to be in im mediate danger. The evening after moving, ho sat up till 9 o'clock and talked hopefully of being able to go to Mauiiou Springs. The Post mo trx.. Mr. Pailorsou was also present at the post mortem. The lungs were much effected; the stomach ulcerated, and the - ver in tnal condition ot disinlegiation kuoivnas fatty degeneracy. OT11K I'OIXTS. The only unfavoraul j comments heard by the reporter v. as on the manner in which liquor was given to deceased. It is said that while at the Jewett House he was given three or four drinks in the inoruiug before getting up and that his m. titer fur. nished it for him by the loltlo. Two men that came from St. Louis did much to encourage his habits of drinking. Jesse Lindell who seeks to sot aside the deed is hut i'O vears old has been twice uurried and divorced and has a guardian appointed by the court on account oí his dissolute habits. A man out of work cud hard up, was given a suit cf clotlica suu a blanket by Dr. Davis the morning they left lor St Loals. That man has siu0 bein; telling people to look out for Dr. Davis. The ronera! opinion appears to bo thai the boy tira:: k himself to death and thai stronger efforts should have been made to keep Ida constitutional Appetite V'lzhia bounds. JR?nr li mining Cnmp.

The forjuatiou is said fn be exactly the tame as that at Leadville, The Plow Tnrns I'p an Old Mexirni copper CnnnOn Ball. The old Fristoe farm is located nine miles north of Sedalia. While plow ing over his com for the second time, about two months ago, Mr. Charles Fiistoe plowed up what was evidently an old cannon ball. But it (vas not an American cannon ball. It was evident ly copper, or at least, the great bulk of it was, mixed with some other al loy. Its weight was a fraction less than four pounds It was evidently at first a four pound eannon ball, but the eat ing of the verdigris had red deed it several ounces, it had never bee it. moulded, but hammered into shape as nearly round aa could be made by th hands of any artizan without machine ry. Without doubt the ball was a Mex i can cannon b ill, and the question was as il was about the fly in the amber: Though neither rich nor rare Yet how the devil got it there? The calamities of central and eastern Europe seem likely to be supplement ed by a season of dearth, consequent upon the unfavorable state of the crops. The Spanish harvest, though it is not expected to equal the average, is looking better than was tunrst an ticipated, and Sicily, despite the re cent devastating eruption, also makes a tolerable show. On the other hand northern Italy is in a very unpromis ing condition" from the recent Hoods, and the same cause has done much mischief in Hungary likewise. Russht however, seems to be the most unfor tunate. Along the whole northern coast of the lilack Sea. from the Prufli to Caucasus, corn beetles and gr; ss hopers have made terrible havoc, their ravages bung supplemented by seve ral of those terr'iii- hidlstorins which are the curse of the Russian cormauds in summer. The w orst of these took place just ten years ago, in July, 187i destroyed 11,000 acres of magnificent corn in two hours and a half. Many of t he hailstones were as large as tennis balls, and the noise of their fall was like the distant boating of rount les drums. In one place the bodies of n number of wild fowls were found li terally pounded into the ear.h; and two or three men who failed to find shelter were so badly bruised as to completely disable them for the time being. Curiously enough, the storm appeared to strike in alternate swat te es, one field being sometimes untouch ed while the next was completely destroyed.

It had been noticed, especially when any persons were performing; on a piano, organ or other musical instrument, that (bore were peculiar humming noises in the chimney something like singing in the distance.
