I.os Cerrillos. Las Vkoas, N. M., Nov., 26, 1879. Editor Gazette: Itet timing last evening from a visit to Ihe lower mining camus, I thought that it would only be justice to the miners of Los Cerrillos aniñes to give to the public a statement as to what I saw there in the wav of mines and my opinion about the future success of that section as a mining district. The Cerrillos are a low isolated range of mountains r.bout 26 miles south-west of .Santa Fe, New Mexico. an I about 12 miles east of the Uio Grande. The range covers an area of about 4 bv 6 miles, the Galistco river running along its south western bor der. The formation is porphyry sye nite, with an occasional cropping ot sand and lime stone. The minerals that have already becnl'ound are gold silver,"; copper, Wd, iron and coal In this district is the celebrated tur quoin mine irom whieh Tas taken some of the finest ttirquois that ever was found. The Cerrillos, like the other mountain in this region, are suppos cd to contain many rich mines filled up and hidden. by the Indians, after the Spaniards were expelled in 1680 The miners have already discovered and reopened a good many of these nnei- cut workings. I was shown several of' the old stone hammers that were used by the ancient miners in getting out ore with. They were found in cleaning out some of these old shafts. There have, up to the present lime, de keeper of do b'ar trap, will hang an emblem of sorrow to do knob of de inner doah, an' keep it dar fortín space of fo'locn days, and we will now jinc in singiiT RULES FOR PROSPECTING.

As indicated in the proceedings below I was instructed to lay before the committee of investigation a copy of the minutes at the meeting of the meeting of the citizens committee ap pointed at the Court House. " In obedience. lo lioso instructions I went to the Jewel t House twice even ing before last between hours of se ven and nine o'clock but could find no committee or meeting it has therefore been decided advisable to publish the proceedings that all may know the exact status of things.

Maddux, who had the honor to be the first Ameri can justice of the peace elected in that eountry.

Mr. Weschc replied that this com mittee nor the citizens meeting for whom . it acted had done anything which they wished to keep secret.

Church, Phil ips and JNew berry. These gentlemen have latclv placed ilieinselves upon the record in tlio effort to account for mineral deposits, aud so successfully, that it atiords a hope that we may have eveotnally scicntihe rules tor prospecting with more certaiuty, and ovcry respect eoue;jiiemiy iivviu a vui amount ui useless labor in places, that geologi cally do not promise anything, and consequently cast a heavv percentage against the paying mines. Mr. J. S. Philips, iu a very valuable work called "The Miner's Guide and Assistant," tells us not to go too far awuy troui the contact ot the primi tive' rocks with those of secondary formation. This is a fixed fact and good rule, but can it always be. obey id. ' : I ! ill! ' ' : A prospector finds limestone, quartzite and slate: in these m'coh ttaries he immediatelv commences to search for quartz veius and indica lions of minerals, to wit: stains from acid solutions, oxides of iron, lead, manganese, etc. lhcsc are good nidi cations., .tjcoiogy. tells us that near the plutonic ami primitive rocks, the granite, porphyries, syenite, and the eruptive ovkes gcnerallv, we may look for mineralized veins, especially where thev cross and cut tneseconda rv formations. At a distance they become either imperfectlv mincraliz ed or barren zones. Now comes the dillicultv. Perhaps the line of quart ite covers the surface, or, at least, shows onlv the ero up in as. In this case, actual mining and underground explorations alone van determine the position of the primitive or eruptive rocks, as manv miners have learned to their cost. These disturbing ele ment cause the deposit of rniucruls and vet thev are seldom found to be the permanent wall on, either $ide. of the paying mine, at ordinary depths, nor are thev alwavs lound until cofr sideroblc depth is stained 1 he eruptive courses seem necessary to supplv, iho, mineral solutions from below, that dissolve out, and pass to the surface, the rock 'of the fissures aud ore chambers, and deposit the minerals und metals where the proper conditions and preripitants arc found.
