purchasing anything of Indians. A " ven

largely. Four claims, taken up by the
discoverers contained the whole streak,

Much excitement prevailed throughout

Hcmduo Gulch, U. T.,
March 1st, 1S61.
Secession seems to bo the principal
topic with, your Eastern and Southern
honorables, now-a-days. It is also occu
pying considerable cf our attention at
present. Humbug and American Gulch
es are trying to secede from the Judicial
District. But there is no fear of their
succeeding, as thero are too many con
servative persons interested. But in an
other character, and in an altogether dif
ferent form, (Typhoid or Mountain fe
ver) the is beginning to make it tell se
verely. Tho conservatives do not seem
to have much influence in this, matter.
Already her miserable influence has caus
ed three of the most promising men in
tho Gulch to secede from this glorious
" This country is becoming, njoro devel
oped svery day. -. New diggings are be
ing discovered every two or three weeks,
but are f ncrafiy," os was the case last
season, pronounced pauperish. And why
so? Simply because they are not half
prospected Seme would be rash enough
to say that such a statement Was without
foundation. I have not the least doubt
that it is contrary to the cpinions of oth
ers. It wC'Jld I e rather against nature
for every one's opinions to correspond.
"Great mea will diar." Let us follow
some of these- fellows ia iheir rounds of
prospecting, and &ee how far find in what
way they prosecuted their search for the
precious metal. teli, fcero is cno fel
low digging a hole; gets Iowa two feet
and tries a panfuil of the dirt; dees not
gat a cobr. Is badly discouraged and
begius shouldering pick and shovel to so
into can:p; but .stops aad .studies, before
rkir,g a s-'cp that way. His all spent
in an outfit 13 brought into remembrance,
and the support of Betty and the brats,
if he has any, if cot, of the support on
his return, back cf seme s'.vtet iu'ndtd.
After revolving all these things in his
mind, he beccor.es possessed cf enough
courage to try it again. So he siuks the
hole cne foot deeper, td tries another
an, but Diry speck makes its appear
ance. What then? He makes for camp
and examines his stock of provisions and
finds he has enough and perhaps a lit
tle more, ti last htm to the Missouri riv
en So he utters the universal cry "hum
bug V "humbug !" and hurries away lest
by a longer delay he should be cheated..
The supposition is that if the person de
scribed tvhom I consider a fair sample
of hundreds that came out here last sea
son) had he gotten a dozen colors ia his
pan not being accustomed to panning,
would have washed all away.
We next come across a company of
persons sinking a hole, who are down
about six feet. Well, boys : what luck?
Do you get much of a prospect? .Well,
no yes; I believe we've got a fortune;
fifteen colors in the last panful washed ;
but the dam water is beginning to both
er so. A fellow might get sick from
being in it so much, and I'm told sick

many; and I for one am not very desir
ous of leaving my hones in these moun
tains. What do you say, bys? I move
we quit tni: waiery.place, and try it some
place else. They try it some place else,
but with a like result. What next ? Its
well boys; I think that we had better
try it some place where it is dryer, in the
bank, for instance. The bank is tried,
but the prospect is not rich enough to give
satisfaction. Next a claim must be bought
Time is too precious to longer waste it
prospecting. One is bought. The next
thing is to open it. A tail ditch is cut
from fire to eight feet in depth, probably
half way to the bed rock. Then sluice
boxes are cut, and at it they go in dead
earnest, to washing; the rifik'S are at
night cleaned up, but somehow or other
there is not much gold in them. Then
comes the conjecture of the caue. The
boxes are placed in a more level position
the next day, and nearly every day af
terwards there is some change made,
but all apparently to no avail. They may
take a notion to cut cross ditches if the
gulch is wide; say they do so; do they
find anything of consequence at such a
depth? Of course not. What ihen ?
The claim is sold, or, most likely, desert
ed, 'and they are off" for home.
Sonic of the more scrupulous would
say that thy had dug to the bed rock.
What if they had ? Do any of them sup
pose their search is complete ? They
worked like thousands of others, by the
basis of California, and it is almost nat
ural that they should think so. I say, as
a general thing, it is not half completed.
The gold in this country is found in
streaks varying from one to six feet in
width; not like in California, scattered
promiscuously over the bed rock. And
it never pays much more than wages cfF
of it, (Georgia and Humbug Gulches ta
ken as a basis, which are, without doubt,
the best paying gulches yet opened in
in this country,) hence the reason for so
many Califomians "stampeeding" last
season. Thev were amon2 the first to
If the miners had worked more to one
another's interest, ; viz : helping one an
other to cut the tail ditches to the bed
rock.-instead or cutting: them, as was
the case, half way, ere this, this country
would ,havehad a different name. But
the most of them were too wayward and
selfish. They "did not come here to
work for' the interests of others;" and
too thick-headed to see that it would be
a mutual advantage.
I am very sorry to say that in the Geor
gian we first see our exemplar. It is a
little humiliating to the Northerners, who
are so much noted for their quick per
ceptions and inventive powers, to see the
Southerners our leaders in this one im
portant case. It probably is because the
most of them are from the inina in Geor
gia and that frcm long experience there,
became convinced that the "Union Rule,"
as of old, was the only one to safely
Georgia and Humbug are tho only
gulches yet completely opened in this
Blue Pine country, and. without doubt,
pay best of any in all this Pikes Peak
country. Is it to be supposed that these
are the only ones that will be found, or
rather opened, for there are many dis
covered, that will pay ? Certainly not.
Every one that was out here last sum
mer, and staid any length of time, knows
that the color can be got in almost every
side hill and gulch in this country, and
that too at nearly every panfuil of dirt
washed. Now if such bo the case, is it
not a good indication that there is some
thing m the vicinity better. Who knows
but what the French, Brown, American,
Swan, and numerous other gulches dis
covered are as rich as these. All pros
pect alike on the surface. Who knows
but what on the bed rock of each of the
afore named there is a two foot streak
worth forty dollars to the foot ? None

If it was like California, situated in. a
part of the country where emigrants coald
not go and come so easy, the result would
be much different. During the first three
or four j-ears after the discovery of gold
there, emigration rushed into it by thou
sands. Such wa3 the case in regard to
this last season. In California, nearly
all, big and little, great and small, of
little firmness or much, had to "root hog
or die." Such wa3 their only situation;
for to return to the States that season was
out of the question. With this country
it is altogether different. If emigrate
start early they can get here in time to
look around two or three weeks, and, if
not suited, can return to almost any part
of the States in time to put in a crop, or
do a season's work at almost any thing.
Galena Gulch was altogether deserted
last fall. A large number also had been
pauperizing themselves all spring and
summer on the wrong scent, and fiually
gave it up, and about two months ago, a
company of Georgia and Humbug Gulch
fellows went out there, jumped and or
ganized on it, formed themselves into a
company, and went to work prospecting
in a hole that had already been unk to
the bed rock, .irst digging on one side to
the distance of fifteen feet to no aail,
and then on the other six feer, when a
four foot streak was struck, that is esti
mated to be worth fifteen dollars to the
Blue Biverthe mother of this coun
try, that last year pursued and put to
flight so many; that gave so many the
"Blues," and empty purses, is now be
ginning to redeem herself. In the sec
ond division of Miner's District, there
has been a streak struck by the same mo
dus operandi as in Galena Gulch, that is
estimated to be worth six dollars to the
French Gulch, I see by the papers, is
showing her colors very largely. One
of them states that a nugget was taken
out of it that weighed two hundred dol
lars. I happen to be tolerably well ac
quainted on that gulch and know there
has never been any such a nugget taken
out of it. The largest was seventy-five
dollars,'' and the next largest fifiy.four.
The only companies that have taken out
anything of consequence are the Atchi
son and Rogers, and they have not taken
out quartz since last fall. There is no
telling what all this tumult will termi
nate in, as the gulch is not yet complete
The largest nugget taken out on this
side of the snowy range, was taken out
of claim No. 5 on Georgia Gulch. It
weighed two hundred and eleven penny
weights, and was sold the same day for
two hundred dollars. There was one
other taken out of No. nineteen, that
weighed eighty-five dollars. About two
months ago, Judge Brown took out of
No. one a nugget that weighed one hun
dred and nineteen dollars.
Four gulches have been discovered
lately in this vicinity'- the' Union, Rock
Island, Swan Creek, and Nebraska but
they have not been , very 'well prospec
