' Gregory's Diggings
June 9thr. 1859.
The undersigned, none of them mi
ners, nor in any way directly interested
in mining, but now here for the express
purpose of ascervaining and. settirT frrth
the truth with regard to a subject of deep
and general iDierest, as to which the wi
dest and wildest diversity of assertion and
opinion is known to exist, unite in the
following jstatement: . ,
We have this day personally visited
nearly all the mines already opened in
this valley (that of a little stream run
ning into C lear Creek at this point ;) have
witnessed the operation of diffffinar, trans
porting and washing the vein-stone, ( a
partially aecomDosed or rotten quartz,
running in regular veins from south-west
to north-east, between shattered walls of
an impure granite,) have seen the gold
plainly vissible in nearly every sluice, and
in nearly every pan of the rotton quartz
washed in our presence ; have seen gold,
but rarely, visible to the naked eye, in
pieces of the quartz not yet fully disinte
grated, and have obtained from the few
who have already sluices m operation,
accounts of their several products, as fol
Zeigler, Spain & Co., from South Bend,
Ind., have run a sluice, with some inter
ruptions, for the last three weeks; they
are four in number, with one hired man.
They have taken out a little over three
thousand pennyweights of gold, estimat
ed by them as worth $3,000 ; their first
day's work produced $21, their highest
Sopris, Henderson & Co., from Farm-
mgton, Indiana, have, run their sluices
six days in all, with four men one man
to dig, one to carry, and two to wash;
four days last week produced $607; Mon
day of this week, 8280 ;' no further re
ported. They have just put into opera
tion a second sluice, which began to run
this morning. .
Foot & Simmons, from Chicago ; one
sluice, run four days; two former days
produced S40 ; two latter promised us but
Defrees & Co., from South Bend, Ind.,
have run a small sluice eight days with
the following results : first day $66; sec
ond day, 8S0; third day, $95; fourth day
$305. The following days were prom
ised us, but by accident failed to be re
ceived. .They have just sold half their
claim for $2,500. A full claim is 50 feet
Shears & Co., from Ft. Calhoun, Ne
braska, have run one sluice. The first
day produced $30, second day $343, the
third day, to-day, $510 ; all taken from
within three feet of the surface ; vein a
foot wide on the surface, widened to near
eighteen inches at a depth of about three
Brown & Co., from DeKalb county,
Ind., have been one week on their claim ;
carry their dirt half a mile ; have work
ed their sluice a day and a half ; produced
$260;. have taken out specimens contain
ing from 50 cents to $13. Vein from 8
to 10 feet wide.-
Casto, Kendall & Co., from Butler Co
Iowa, reached Denver, March 25th, and
drove the first wagon to these diggings;
have been here five weeks; worked first on
a claim in which they run a sluice, but one
day ; produced $225 : sold their claim for
$2,500 ; are now working a claim an the
Hunter lead ; have only fcluiced one
(this) day; three men employed, produc
Bates & Co., one sluice, ran half a day
Coleman, King & Co., one sluice,' run
half a day, produced $74.
Shorts & Collier, bought tint claims sev
en days since of Caste, Kendall St Co.,
for $2,500 ; $500 down', and the balance
as fast as can be taken out ; have not yet
got sluices into operation. Mr. Dean, of
Iowa, on, the 6th instant washed from a
single pan of dirt taken from the claim,
$17,80, have been offered $10,000 for
S. G. Jones & Co., from Eastern Kan
sas, have run sluices two days, with three
men; yield $225 per day; think quartz in
this vicinity generally is gold bearing ;
have never seen a' piece crushed that did
not yield gold. ' .
A. P." Wright & Co., from Elkhart co.,
Ind., sluice but just in operation ; have
not yet ascertained its products; our
claim prospects from .25 cents to one dol
lar and twenty-five cents to the pan.
John H. Gregory, from Gordon coun
ty, Georgia, left home last season en route
for Frazier river, was detained by a suc
cession of accidents at Fort Laramie, and
wintered there; meanwhile, heard of the
discoveries of gold on the South Platte,
and started on a prospecting tour on the
eastern slope of the Jlocky Mountains,
early in January; prospected in almost
every valley, from the Cache la Poudre
Creek, to Pike's Peak, tracing many of
the streams to their sources; early in
May arrived on Clear Creek, at the foot
of the mountains, 30 miles southeast cf
this -place; there fell in with the Defrees
& Ziegler companies from Indiana, and
Wm. Pfonts, of Missouri ; we all started
up Clear Creek, prospecting. Arrived at
this Ticinity on the sixth of May. The
ice and snow prevented us from prospect
reaching it. or to hurry away immediate
ly. after, more hastily than they came.
Gold mining is a business which eminent
ly requires of its votaries capital, experi
ence, energy, and in which the high
est qualities do not always command suc
cess. There may be hundreds of ravines
in these mountains as rich with gold as
that in which we write, and there prob
ably are many ; but, up to this hour, we
do- not know that any such have been dis
covered. There are said to be five thou
sand people already in this ravine, and
hundreds more pouring into it daily.
Thousands more have been passed by us
on our" rapid journey to this place, or
heard of as. on their way hither by oth
er routes. For all these, nearly every
pound of provisions and supplies of -every
kind must be hauled by teams from the
Missouri River, some 70Q miles distant,
over roads which are mere trails, cross
ing countless unbridged watercourses, al
ways steep-banked, and often miry, and
at times so swolen by rains as to be utter
ly impassable by wagons. Part of this
distance is a desert, yielding grass, wood
and water, only at intervals of several
miles, and then very stealthily. To at
tempt f) cross this desert without food is
madness suicide murder. To cross
with teams in midstfrnmer, when the wat-
ter-courses are mainly dry, and the grass
eaten up, is possible only to tnose who
in"' far below the surface, but the first pan
of Surface dirt on the .original Gregory
claim yielded four dollars. Encouraged
by this success, we all stake! out claims,
found the 'lead' consisting cf burnt quartz
resembling the Geonria mines, in which
I had nreviovslv worked. Snow and iceJ
prevented the regular vorking of the
lead till May the 16th, fron then until
the 23 J, I worked five dajs with two
hands. Result $9S2. t Soon after I sold
my two claims for . Wfcnfy-bne thousand
dollars. The parties bujing to pay me
after deducting their 'expenses, all they
takft frnm the claims, to" the amount of
f.'vo hundred dolhrs per rk, until the
wiiuie is paia." Dincu Uiai luucAivc
been prospecting for other parties at two
hundred dollars per day. nave struct
lead on the other side of the valley from
which I washed out fourteen dollars from
a single Dan.
Some forty or fifty sluices commenced
nrR nnt vet in oneration : but the owners
inform us that their "prospecting" shows
from ten cents to five dollars to the pan
As the leads are all found on the hills,
manv of the miners are constructing:
trenches to carrry water to them, instead
of building their sluices in tne ravines
and carrying the dirt thither in wagons
and sacks. Many persons who have
come here without provisions or money,
are comDelled to work as common labor
ers at from one to three dollars per day
and board, until they can procure means
fnr the time necessary to
prospecting, ' building sluices, etc. Oth
ers, not finding trold the third day, or,
disliking the work necessary to obtaining
it, leave the mines in disgust, after a very
short trial, declaring there is . no goia in
paying quantities here. It should be
remembered : that .the discoveries, made
thus. far, are the result oi but five weeks'
In nearly every instance, th gold is
estimated by the miners as worth $20 per
a .11. . 1
ounce, which for gold collected oy quicK-
i aU. Vk 1 no i tr t K rt'
silver, is certainiy a uig" omauuu,
this is undoubtedly of very great purity
Thfi reader can reduce the estimate if he
cppe fii. We have no data on which to
art in thfi nremisGS.
The wall rock is generally shattered,
so that the vein-stone is readily taken
nt with the nick and shovel. ' In a single
indfinro rmlv Hid we hear of wall rock
too hard for this.
Of the vein-stone, probably not more
than one-half is so decomposed that the
trold can be washed.from it. The rest
due of the quartz is shoveled out of the
sluices, and reserved to be crusnea ana
.vashed hereafter. The miners estimate
this en nail v rich with that which has Tot
ted' so that the gold may be washed fronT
it; hence, that they realize as yet, dui
half the gold dug by them. This seems
v,io hnt the truth of it remains to
VWUW4W av v
It should be born in mind that, while
the miners here, now labor under many
disadvantages, which must disappear with
the growth of their experience and the
improvements of their now rude macDine-
rv. thev at the same time enioy advanta
ges which cannot be retained indefinitely,
. . . , rrl , 11
nnr ronrterert universal. Alicv uic un
working near a small mountain stream,
which affords them an excellent supply of
water for washing at a very cheap rate ;
and. though such streams are very com
mon here, the Heads stretch over rugged
hills and considerable mountains, down
which the vein-stone must be carried to
water, at a serious cost. It does not
seem probable that the thousands of claims
already made or being made on tnese
leads can be worked so profitable in the
average as those already in operation
We hear already of many who have work
ed their claims for days without having
"raised the color," as the phrase is
that is without having found any gold
whatever. We presume thousands are
fiPtinP(i tn enrnnnter lasting and utter
disappointment, quartz veins which bear
no gold being a prominent feature of the
geology of all this region.
We cannot conclude this statement with
out nrntestinir most earnestly against a
renewal of the infatuation which impel!
ed thousands to rush to this region a month
. . l r
two since, oniv to turn uauK. vviuiv
water, and where water must be carried
along to preserve life. A few months
hence probably by the middle of Octo
ber this whole Alpine region will be
snowed under and frozen up, so for as to
put a stop to the working of sluices, if
not to mining altogether. There then,
for a period of at least six months, will
be-neither employment, food nor shelter,
within five hundred miles for the them
ands pressing hither under the delusion
that gold may be picked up here like
pebbles onthe sea shore, and that when
they arrive here, even though 'without
provisions or money, their fortunes are
made. Great disappointment, great suf
r,;L0, ijviiab!e ; few canuscape
the latter who arrive at Denver City af
ter September-without ample means to
support them in a very dear country, at
least through a long winter. We charge
those who manage the telegraph not to
diffuse a part of our statement without
giving substantially the whole ; and we
beg the press generally to unite with us
in warning the whole people against an
other rush to these gold mines, as ill-advised
as those of last spring: a rush sure
to be followed like that by a stampede,
but one far more destructive of property
A. D. RICHARDSON,
A Prescription for Early Risln
Rev. Mr. Beecher has the following
in his last Star Paper ;
uood healtny children that are put to
bed at night when birds and chickens re
tire, are admirable wakeners in the mor
ning. When they have slept their sleep
full, there is then no help for you.
Wake they will, coo and frolic they will.
All your hushing and humming are vain
Your efforts to put them to sleep only
serve to waken them up! A bouncing
boy, a year old,, creeping out of his crib
slyly, and pouncing on his father's .face,
with chirp and chuckle, is better than any
alarm clock. A clock will soon run out
its cacophonous rattle, but a child never
runs down, or ends his fun.
But we have discovered a new method
or waking eariy. . rercned up upon our
green hill sloope beyond Peekskul, we
have found it difficult to sleep after about
four o'clock of summer mornings. For a
countless multitude of. birds, in all the
trees and shrubbery, aim their notes at
us with such sweet archery that we are
pierced through and through with the sil
ver arrows of music. It is in vain that
you wrap the pillows about your ears ! It
is vain for you to reflect that you need
sleep and will not get up. Every one is
aware that an effort of .will, sufficient to
resist the annoying or attractive sound, is
itself the end of sleep.
While we are resisting, we are waken
ing. Thus, this very morning, all the
trees about our little house were belfries,
and rang out more chimes than were ev
er heard at Cologne or Antwerp. And,
after the first recognition, we turned res
olutely to the walldetermined to sleep on.
But, " that's' a robin," said our ears, and
'that's a bobolink,' 'there goes a wren,'
and sparrows, larks, phoebes, cat-birds,
and many of their cousins in the orchard
and woods, all joined to laugh us out of
the idea of sleeping.
Now, if any one wishes to know how
to get up early, we will tell him. Go
out cf the city early in the day. Seek
some tranquil place in the country where
guns are never heard, where fruit trees
and shade trees abound, and where the
shaking of the leaf or the distant crow of
chanticleer is the loudest sound ever heard
except of birds. And then, after walk
ing all- day among the fields' and hills,
and forests, and supping upon milk that
never dreamed of a city milkman, go to
bed by nine o'clock. If you do not wake
before five the next morning, report the
case to us, and we will make a fresh pre
Races ana Religions.
The whole North American Continent
has only 38,000,000 of inhabitants, not
as much as France or Austria. The
whole of Central and South America has
only 23,000,000, less than Itally, Euro
pean Russia has as many inhabitants as
America, Australia and" Polynesia to

than in Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, Nebras

without including Chinese Tartary has
more inhabitants than America, Austra

The late Baron de Humboldt beaueath-
ed to his domestic, Seiffert. who had lived
with him thirty-three years, all his im-.
raense library, all his furniture, and all
his articles of value, with the exception
of a few, which he charges him to pre
sent to certain persons. His manuscripts.
however, are not comprised in the dona
tion, and among them is one of a geog
raphical work of greater extent than anv
know just where to look for grass and hitherto published. The domestic is his
testamentary executor. The money in
hand at the time cf the Baron's decease
was under 500 thalers. Of this sum he
had given 400 thalers to the servant, with
written instructions to apply the money
to the expenses cf his funeral. As a
proof of the little vrrlue M. de Humboldt
set on personal distinctions, it riay be
stated, that the great number of decora
tions which he had recoived from the sov
ereigns of all countries, were lying pell
mell in a ; cupboard. Ilia legr.l heirs
caused the property to be put under seal,
not being aware of the donation made to
Seiffert. This old and faithful servant
had, some years before, been appointed
guardian cf a royal palace, at hLs mas
ter's request, but the King dispensed with
his fulfilling the duties of this post during
the lifetime of M. de Humboldt.

to s'pose a case."
The court was willing to hear any sup

"Well, now, s'pose you owned a hog

squeal for something ta eat, and you had
not got anything to give it, and you knew
that every squeal took" off half a pound

His honor moved uneasily in his seat,
as though he couldn't see the point of the

He was fined five dollars and costs.

The follnwing passage, says the Chris
tain Advocate, is from" one of Professor
Mitchel's -lectures, delivered at the Ac
ademy of Music, at New York citv. Af

which no telescope can penetrate, lying
far beyond the system in which the earth
revolves, ana yet tilled with independent
systems of worlds of infinite numbers, he
Light traverses space at the rate of a
million miles a minute, vet the hVht from

Lord Rosse pursued, these creations of
God still deeper into space, and having
resolved the, nebulae of the Milky way ia
to stars' discovered other svstems of stars
beautiful diamond points, glittering thro,
the black darkness beyond. When he
beheld this amazing abvss when he saw
these systems scattered profusely through
out space when he reflected upon their
immense distance, their immense mag
nitude, and the countless millions of worlds
that belonged to them, it seemed as though
the wild dream of the German poet was
more than realized. .
God called'man in dreams into the
vestibules of Heaven, saving : "Come ud

strip him of his robes of flesh: cleanse his
affections ; put a new breath into his nos
trils ; but touch not his human heart the
heart that fears and hopes and trembles."
A moment, and it was done, and the man
stood ready for his unknown voyage.
Under the guidance of a mighty angel,
with sounds of flying siniods,. they sped
away from the battlements of Heaven.
sometimes on the mighty' angels wins
they lied through Saharas of darkness,
wildernesses of death. At Ieno-th. from

They sped on in their terrible speed to
meet the light ; the light with lesser speed
came to meet them. In a moment was the
blazing of suns around them a moment
and wheeling of planets : then came long
eternities of twilight; then again, on the
right and on the left, appeared mere con
stellations. At last the man fell down
crying : "Angel, I can go no farther. Let
me lie down in the grave and hide myself
from the infinitude of the universe, for
end there is nne." "End there is none?
demanded the angel. And from the glit
tering stars that shone arcund, there
came a choral shout, "End there is none!f'
"End there is none ?" demanded the an.
again, and i3 it this that awes my soul ?
I answer, end there is none to the Uni
verse of God ! Lo, also, there is no beginning."
CcltiTatins the Grape YInc.
In selcting a site for a grape vine, choose
a dry sub-soil, or at least a porus one.
A heavy clay hard-pan is illy suited to the
wants of the vine. Where it must be plant
in soil cf this kind, a drain must be made
from the bottom of a wide, deep planting
noie, to carry oil the water. In addition,
old bones, horns, hoofs, and a few stones.
or decaying wood may be put in to assist
in draining. Upon this- put leaf mould
rotten leaves from the woods muck, gar
den or roadside loam, and rotten manure.
well mixed together, leaving the surface
after the vine is set, a little higher than
the surrounding'gfound If the land i3
too level to drain, find there is no othrr
situation for a vine, we would not desrair
of making a foundation on the surface,
with small stones or corse gravel and plen
ty of broken bones, covering with good
soil, muck and manure as above, so that
the vine may sfini erf 2 si ft cf Jr.ij-ri .

llj Uncle-Foil owing In his Foot
It appears that Louis Napdeon left .
Paris for the army cf Italy on the 6th
of May. It wss on that day, in 1SC0.
that the elder Napoleon set out for his
Italian campaign, which terminated so
gloriously on the field of Marengo. 'The
perseverence witli tthich (he present Em- ..
peror of France treads- in the footsteps
of his uncle and fellows him in his career,
is remarkable. The elder Napoleon ob
tained supreme power in France by di3-
persing the representatives of the people
by military force. So did the yourger.
The aniversary of the latter 'coup d'etat
is the 2d of December, the day cn which
was fought the battle cf Austerlitz by
the former. The dder Napoleon was first '
elected ruler of France for ten years, and
was then chosen emperor. The younger . .
Napoleon passed through the same gra-;
dations precisely. The elder Napuleoa
first took the command of the French
troops in Italy. The younger imitates
his example. The day for their setting
out for the seat of war was, in both' ir
stances, the 6th of May. Napoleon I bid '
his treaty of alliance with Rassia, by
which the two powers agreed to partition )'
the Continent between them. Napoleon
-III has undoubtedly formed a similar
treaty. Napoleon I first put an end 10
the French Republic. So did Napoleon
III. The family of the first Napoleon
consisted of his Empress and one child.
This is exactly the family of Nspoleoa
III. Napoleon I restored France to the
Catholic religion. Napoleon III restored
the Pope cf Rome to his dominion. A
brother cf Napoleon I was aiociat?d
with the Empress, Maria Lctiis-i, in the
Regency, when the Kmperc? set out for '
the war A brother of Napoleon I is
associated with Engene, the Empress cf
Napoleon III, in the Council cf State, on'
the happening cf the same contingency.
Napoleon I was imprisoned six tears in
the Island of St. Helena. Napo.-eon III
was imprisoned six years in the fo? iress of
Ham. These similarities do look sca
thing like the "star' cf destiny."
The Sin Diego Herald says General
Walker has resigned fillituiiericg, and
intends to unite his destinies with a hc!y
of Lower California, who once sated his
life. She is said to be immensely rich,
but objected to the alliance, in cenrs
quence of a difference cf rch'gics.
