Correspondence of the Chicago Telegraph.
DEACWOOD CITY , July 12.
Before enteringjupon details I will
will the extent of the placer deposits
tributary to Deadwood City and
what I can ascertain of their geolog
ical position from the most reliable
data at hand. Whitewood Is the
principal gulch in extent , it being
claimed that it has prospected ex
tent of 20 miles ; and Deadwood ,
its principal tributary , is about
six miles in length. The gen
eral course or trend is east and
west , as is the case with all the
other gold-bearing gulches in the
vicinity. Negro gulch , from which
very fine specimens of coarse cold
have been taken , is 35 miles to the
north of Deadwood , being a short
tributary of Bear creek , or gulch.
Bear gulch , 35 miles to the north , is
quite e"xteusive , tlie gold coarse , but
little ground yet opened. Sand
creek , 65 miles northwest , is many
miles in extent ; specimens of
coarse gold ore found , but no "regu
lar pay streak" yet struck ; Potato
and Tender-foot gulches , 25 miles to
the northward , have some claims
paying well , and : i nugget
has been obtained from the former
weighing nearly $160. Box Elder ,
15 miles to the southward , is very
extensive , but no ground has yet
been prospected which It is thought
will "pay. " At .Rapid creek , 35
miles to the southward , the ground
is very deep , and no bed-rock yet
reached ; it prospects well , but can
only be handled l > y capitalists. Jim
creek aud Gold run are little tribU'
tary gulches which are eaid to yield
well , or promise well , atfaoinepoinis.
JNow all this aggregates a tremen
deus extent of placer country ,
and if 1 should even approximate
in richness to the deposits ol some
of the districts in the old mining
countries , it would afford employ
ment to at least 100,000 men ; but
the placers here are undoubtedly
"spotted. " There are no regular
deposits , and tlie country is aa vet
scarcely prospected at all. Whitewood -
wood and Deadwood gulches are
now , and will probably continue to
be , great centres of population and
business. A a but very fe\v claim *
have as yet been opened , they will
be more populous and active next
year than they now are. Ten del
lars to the pan ot dirt has been ob
tained in Whitewood gulch , and a
man assures me that out of six
successive pans washed from a
Whitewood claim , he never got
a prospect with less than S3.
Several claims on Deadwood are
no\v paying from J500 to § 2,500
day over expenses. One Deadwood
claim has already yielded its own
ers a clear profit of over $100,000 ,
and they are only getting it fairly
opened. They expect to realize a
million out of it. They bought it
early in the spring for $1,000 ; and
It was offered last April for a sack
of flour and forty pounds of beans.
The adjoining claim pays nearly , if
not quite , as well , and Ihe number
of "big paying claims" is increas
ing with every day's developments.
Some of the richest ground , though
claimed , has probably yet to be
opened , being held by men who are
not able o open It. But I must
warn the adventurous voting reader
who has "been
thinking of taking a
trip to the Black Hills , " to not get
excited , for there certainly is
ANOTHER SIDE OF THE STO11Y.
Hundreds auJ thousands are
wearily trudging over the moun
tains without making a cent , and
but scantily supplied with food
They curse the dav they were al
lured , by glowing
newspaper ic-
ports , from their eastern homesand
promise themselves , if they get back
m safety , to go on no more "wild
goose chases. " These , however , as
a rule , are men inexperienced in
mining , aud unused to hard work ,
and there is no harder toil than
gold raining , aud who cannot , con
sequently , secure employment in
competition with old , experienced
mining men. Good miners have
no trouble , I believe , in getting em
ployment at Irom five to six dollars
a day. But comparatively few
young men of the ea-4 would think
of coming to the Black Hills to
work for wages. The only inducement -
ment to make the trip is the hope
of "striking a fortune. " If they
only had the figures , showing how
few out of the aggregate number of
seekers lind a fortune in gold-
mining countries , this hope would
soon dissolve.
CHANGES OF SUCCESS
are indeed remote. But money cir
culates abundantly here , and men
ot pluck and energy can scarcely
fail in general business
There must be a steady improve
ment in general business for some
years , as we yet know but little of
the extent of the mineral resources.
Another season , at least , will be re
quired to even get the majority of
the claims in Whitewood and Deadwood -
wood gulches into proper working
condition. {
The chief object of my prospect
ing tour was to study the geological
formation , and deduce , ir possible ,
some rule to be observed in explor
ing intending , if I found a paying
claim , to make tlie most of it. I
failed in finding a paying claim , but
as I expected J. should from the be
ginning , this was not a crushing dis
appointment. But I fouud this
that past experience in gold mining -
goes for nothing here. I have said
that there were " "
no "regular" de
posits. The precious dust is here
found in what I may term irregu
lar deposits. The old " bed lock "
and "wash" theory is knocked all
to pieces by the practical experience
of the Black Hills. There is no
"bed-rock" hare , and but little
"wash. " -
TheW-igiual bed-rock If
an old miner would be allowed to
speculate has been torn to atoms
by some kind of a convulsion , and it
is run through the sluice-boxes in
in
sharp , angular fragments of slate.
Neither the gold nor the rocks show
the action of water to any great ex at
tent. In some places I fouud coarse
particles of gold on the surface , in
loose grayel , and
NOT A COLOR
in the present bed-rock. There are
places on the summits of some of
the highest hills which are very i
rich paying well to carry the dirt '
down to water in gunny-sacks
while little or no pay is found in the
rulcb deposits below. "Pilgrims"
fhd good pay In toe most iiplikely t $
places , where an "old miner" would
no more think of looking for gold
than in a ledge of limestone. The
gold apparently ia in secondary de
posits that is , after having first
been deposited from the quartz
veins. It has again been scattered by
subsequent convulsions , and is now
"where you find it. ' ' Finding ,
on my arrival , great excitement
over gold-bearing quartz veius ,
Imve given them some attention.
have examined some rich "blow
outs , " or "chimneys , " some of the
rock specimens being spangled all
over with free gold. As the owners
call these "well-defined" veinsl
they will thank me , probably , for
not designating them by name.
Kome of them may lead to regular
veins , but they certainly do not in
themselves bear the evidence of
"true fissure veins. " 1 have seen
some well defined lodes here , which
1 believe to by rich in mineral , but
they show nothing to excite any
body. Usually quurtz which is re
markably productive at the surface
does not hold out so well as that of
moderate richness. Xiong tunnels
must be run in at practicable points
none have been &o started yet , I
think aud deep shafts must be
sunk before capitalists will make
heavy investments
In the Ida Gray district , the lime
stone and slate join the granite for
mation , and between the two , run
ning entirely through the district ,
from the northeast to the southwest ,
is a great mineral vein , from five to
twenty feet wide , which undoubted
ly carriessilver as well as gold. This
vein id traceable a great distance on
the very crest of a high range , aud
a vast extent of plains country can
be seen from it beyond and over the
mountains.
The other minerals discovered in
the Black Hills , down to this time ,
are iron , copper , isiug-glass , gyp
sum , and plumbago. The extent of
the timber growth has not been ex
aggerated. This item alone would
probably justify the construction of
a railroad. The mountains are covered -
ered with pines of majestic growth ,
while in some of the valleys ; there
are splendid groves of oak. Ash
and elm also grow to a good size.
Ttie wild fruits are plums , grapes ,
raspberries , strawberries , service-
berries , and huckleberries. Borne
of the canyons are also choked with
hazlenut bushes.
I have not yet visited the agricul
tural districts. The Spearfish val
ley , 15 miles west of jeadwood , is
said to be fertile , and a fine grazing
section. J < orty er fifty
FABM LOCATIONS
have already been made there , and
a little town established. T have
Ho doubt general farming will prove
successful here , in favorable locali
ties , as there are some flourishing
gardens in Whitewood and Deadwood -
wood gulches , high up in the moun
tains.
Hams are veiy frequent here , ac
companied by terrific electrical
pheuomeua. Days warm and nights
cool and pleasant. Though there
are no mosquitoes in the Hills , it is
the most insectiferous region , in the
summer peason , I ever visited out
side the tropics.
An expedition of 70 men set out
from Dcadwood City day before
yesterday for the Big Horn moun
tains.
They will go by way of the head
of the Rosebud , where it Is said
there is a flourishing little camp of
mountain miners , who have struck
payitiu diggings. This camp isi-akl
to be about 125 miles northwest of
Deadwood City. It is reported here
tuat paying diggings have also been
discovered in the Owl Creek moun
tains , one of the western tributaries
of the Bis ; Hoi n. 1 hear of still another -
other large expedition organizing
for the Big Horn country.
Emigration continues to pour into
the Hills , and the population is now
estimated at from 8,000 to 10,000 ,
The latest who arrived report that
they had no trouble with the In
dians , and fe\y were seen by them.
The warriors are all doubtless con
centrated or co-operating in harras-
sing the troops in the field. But
there are small straggling parties of
hostiles around the Hills , beyond
doubt. They made a raid on a herd
of horses down near Crook City , 12
miles below here , a few days ago ,
and succeeded iu gettiug away with
half a dozen head.

"WASHINGTON , July 27.
After the reading of the jnuinal ,
Mr. Bayard said : I am sure the
Ben ate and country will be deeply
affected by the announcement of
the melancholy event of yesterday ,
the death of our-lute friend and
brother Allen T. Caperton , senator
from West Virginia. 1 move aa a
mark of respect so justly do to the
memory of this excellent aud honor
able man , that the senate stand ad
journed until to-morrow at 11.
. Mr. Stevenson said he concurred
in what he had said , and moved
that a committee of four senators be
appointed to accompany the re
mains of the deceased to his late
residence m West Virginia. Agreed
to , and the chair appointed Messrs.
Davies , Cooper , Booth aud Hitch
cock as such committee.
The motion of Mr. Bayard was
then agreed to , and the Senate ad
journed.

A message froui the senate an-
nouhciug the death of Seuator Cap-

The Silver Bill.
WASHINGTON , July 27.
The house's early adjournment
has not only prevented action on
the mining committee's silver bill ,
to-day , hut probably throws it o\er
till next weefc , with greatly dimin
ished prospects of its passage.
The special assignment of to-mor
row's session for the consideration of
the naval committee's reports on
Robesou , and the pendency of the
contested election case , as unfinish
ed business , together with the fact
that to-morrow and Saturday , under
the rules , are private bill day- , will ,
ll Is believed , render unavailing
any attempts to call up the silver
bill this week On Monday , if not
overweighed by the adoption ot Mr.
Holman's amendment partially re
pealing the specie resumption act ,
it hus a chance ot passage , under
suspension of the rules , as i\lr. Kel
ly's similar bill for the revival of the
old .silver dollar lacked only seven
votes out of two-thirds majority last
Monday ; but if it awaits the morn
ing hour of Tuesday Mr. Garlield
aud other prominent opponents of
the measure intend to try and tilli-
buster it over until the next morn
ing hour , aud so on until the session
ends , liiey ara to-day conlideut
they can succeed by these tactics in
preventing its passage by any vote
less than two-thirds this session ,
and they believe two-thirds cannot
be secured.

Lemaise by Mr. Hoar , second mate ,
and three men , of the British bark
Southern Cross , " who were going
in a small boat to Uahmoia Mission ,

sistance. The Southern Crots was
then anchored in Gorce Roads in
distress , leaking badly , and only
one pump available. The captain
was ill , aud the mate in charge of
the boat obtained provision * and
ammunition from the Santa Clara
aud proceeded on his way. The
whaling bark Illinois , of this port ,
was run down in the Arctic ocean

ers , crook wants to march toward
his command half way as the In
dians are in the mountains aud
battles must be fought there.
The Snake allies say ihe Sioux
are occupying the mountains where
Sibley's party struck them , and will
compel ( lie troops to light them
inch by inch. This will be a deadly
warfare , as the Sioux liuow every
foot of the ranges , of which th °
troops are decidedly ignorant , and
can guard every pass and ambus
cades the soldiers al every step.
With plenty of dried meat aud an
abundance of game they Can make
a prolonged resistance. Veteran
ollicers eay it would be wise to ac
cept volunteers.

lieved at army headquarteis Hint
the forces of Crook and Gibbon are
not over eighty miles apart and can
be readily brought within sup
porting dlntance Crook feels he is
going to have hard lighting , but in
tends to make it decisive. It's said
there are at least 0,000 warriors in
the field under Sitting Bull. It ia
feared the Sioux have received ac
cessions from the Sioux in British
Possession , which might swell hos
tile force to 10,000 Sioux. If they
are driven to wll by troops they
will go north and take refuge in
the British Possessions. Fears are
entertained that Crook may be over
matched.
The morning papers deny that
Vanderbilt's condition is serious aud
