THE NETF, GOLD ItEGIOX.
Late and Interesting Informa
Idaho City (Sept. 10) Correspondence of the Utah
Observing exaggerated reports had
reacnea uonnne, apparently credited,
relative , to . the newly . discovered
mining camp of Oro Grand, uixm Le
on creek; a tributary of Salmon river,
I take the occasion of sending early
iniormauon ol tue extent aud proba
ble resources of the recent discovery,
so far as reliably known here.
oro urana was discovered as a
mining camp ty a small party of pros
pectors from Lemhi county, known
as the Nat Smith partv, about the last
of July. As. soon as the discovery of
gold in paying quantities was made,
the party communicated it to a num
ber of miners prospecting not far from
there, upon the bars of Salmon river.
Some returned to Lemhi to notify
friends and mining- partners. A tra-dej-.named-Joe
Galation, formerly a
fesidentof this place, and employed
by W, D.'.Vantion & Co., wholesale
and retail merchants, had a store es
tablished about twenty miles distant
for-the purpose of supplying Salmon
river miners, Learning of the Oro
Grand discovery, he immediately re
turned here and engaged a large stock
of merchandise for the new market.
AYithln a fortnight after the news was
communicated here not less than five
hundred men left Boise county for the
new camp. ' About one hundred have
since returned, and others are still
going. The camp at present. consists
of about seven, hundred men from
Boise, Idaho and Lemhi counties, in
this Territory, and the eastern verge
of Montana. . All who have seen the
country agree in stating that the ex
tent of the mining country discovered
will not profitably employ and sup
port over fifteen hundred men. The
"diggings" are in a narrow gorge be
tween high mountains, ; about, six
hundred ards in, width, including
the creek, and about fifteen miles in
length. '''Want of lumber has preven
ted any sluice mining as yet, although
water is . abundant Loon creek fur
nishes notless than 3,000 inches of
water. Dwarf timber is plenty, but
no trees suitable for sawing into lum
ber grow within six or seven miles of
where the town of Oro Grand has
been located. . Stockade buildings or
pole houses are being built for busi
ness purposes, with canvas roofs. Saw
mill machinery is on the way from
Boise City,, and by the end of the
present month lumber markets are
expected to supply the demand.
The altitude of the eountry is con
siderably greater than Idaho City,
and ice formed several nights las
month one-fourth of an inch thick
there, and there has been more or less
frost nearly every night.- -The dis
tance of the new camp, from nere is
about eight miles in an air line, near
lv due east.
The present traveled trail Is about
one hundred and thirty miles, and is
called an excellent mountain trail,
which can, with but little trouble, la
bor and expense, be made a good
mountain wagon road. It is believed
. a i
a nearer route can be made practica
ble, shortening the distance nearly
or quite one-third. .The new camp
will undoubtedly constitute a nucleus
for outfitting prospecting parties for a
great area of adjacent country, and
there is but little doubt other discov
eries not less important will be made
In that vicinity. . ....
Up to the present time, however,
while a new mining camp has been
discovered in Central Idaho, of con
siderable extent and greater or less
richness, it is but iust that the public
outside of Idaho should not be misled
as to the actual facts. Here, in this
insular region, we are used to such
excitements, as the old miners call
them, and not seriously disappointed
when thev turn out to be less impor
tant, if not wholly worthless, than re-
orted.' But it is always better in the
ong run that the public generally are
not deceived by exaggerated state
ments or disappointed by inconsider
able results. Mining Is, at best, an
uncertain pursuit: but the profess
ional miner is used to its vicissitudes,
hardships and privations, and loves
its very uncertainty. Anotherseason
wm demonstrate more iuny me ex
tent and richness of the Oro Grand
resrion: and when the truth Is fully
ascertained, if favorable, will be am
ple time for a rush of outsiders, who,
otherwise, are almost certain to curse
their luck and an innocent country
for their own folly perhaps over-credulityin
too hastily believing base
less reports, or facts exaggerated by ru
mor, as thev travel lurmer, tnau it
would be difficult to recognize and
identify them in their "embroidered"
state. Idaho needs no such adventi
tious aids to secure a floating popula
tion. "Truth is mighty, and will
TheDaptlst and Presbyterian.
In one of the villages of Kentucky,
recently a Baptist minister and a
youngPresby terian clergyman preach
ed in the same house "night about,"
both preachers being present at each
meeting. One evening the Presby
terian, after a discourse on infant bap
tism, proceeded to baptize several ba
bes. The little-candidates made a
great outcry, which of course, was no
ted by the iiaptist man. . Jext day a
number of converts of the latter were
to be immersed in the river near by.
At the appointed hour a large con
course gathered on the banks, the
resbyterian being of the number.and
standing close to the water's edge. Af
ter the candidates had been immers
ed the Baptist took hold of his Presby
terian colleague nnd said.
"2s ow sir, 1 will immerse you." .
The latter, amazed, demurred.
"Come along; I am in a hurry!" re-
lied the damp divine, and dragged
lis brother in -the water. Alarmed
and indignant, the young calvanist
declared at the top of his voice that
he did "not believe in immersion, was
opposed to it, and would not submit
The audience were much excited by
the scene, The Baptist released his

There is no system of government,
from absolute monarchy to a republic,
that will entirely prevent evil, and es
tabhsh good order in society. That
will so govern, and control men as to
effect universal harmony and good
will to all. Human governments
have a restraining inlluence upon the
people.- They are a "terror to evil do
ers." . But they have no direct refor
matory power. Indirectly they may
be a power in reformation. The suc
