MINERAL WEALTH OF THE ROCKT MOUN-TAINS.— At a recent meeting of the Bos-ton Society of Natural History, an instruc. tive paper on the mineral resources of the Rocl^ mountains was presented by William P. Blake It is altogether prob-able that further explorations will show that the gold deposits found in New Mex-ico extend not only as far north as Pike's Peak in Kansas, but up onjhis dope of the mountains opposite the^ sources of Fraser river. Very little is yet known (^all this re^on, whici affords a vast and most interesting field for scientific ex. ploration. Mr. Blake's paper is confined chiefly to New Mexico :— 'The gold Afield of Mew Mexico has been known and worked since 1828, and is confined to the Placer or gold moitn-tians about twenty miles from Santa Fe, towards Albuquerque ; the yield of gold has been chiefly from the washing, and not from veins' and was estimated in 1841 by Wisliczenus as varying from thirty to two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year, but it soon afterwards so dimin-ished that it was counted by hundreds instead of thousands. These placers are on the subordinate or outline ridges of the eastern ranges of the Rocky mountains, and are true hill deposits affording coarse gold like that from the high placers of California. The pay gravel, from twenty to one hundred feet below the snirface, is generally very rich. Owing to the scarc-ity of water, a very large amount of grav-el has been untouched. Veins or beds in the rocks, containing gold, outcrop high-er up in the ravines ; in one place, gold occurs in strata of quartzose sandstone, and great feruginous beds, rather than in veins; the sandstone appears to have been charged with auriferous pyrites; by the decomposition of which gold has been lib-erated. At other points regular quartz veins bearing gold and pyrites are found, and seme of them have been worked at tim^s for over twentyyearsrr:the Ortzs andT5iggs mines Haveown wofk^toa depth of about 135 feet; in a deserted mine in the mountains known as "Los Cer-illos," worked nearly 200 years ago, the principal shaft is 200 feet deep, cut verti-cally and with great precision through solid rock. The largest lump found at tiie placcrs was worth $2000, and from this they occur all the way to 80 and 50; the gold from New Placer is black and ill-looking on t'^e surface, but is very fine, being worth $20 an ounce ; the Mexican miners are paid $16 an ounce for it, and their wages by the day are from 60 to 15 cents. The gold mountains and placers are about SCO miles south of Pike's Peak, and there is but little doubt that gold will be found over this entire distance. The Rocky mountain gold, from assay? made at the Dahlonega branch mint, Georgia, is nearly one-tenth richer than the GalSbr-uia gold, and a little richer than the Aus-tralian. "Next to gold, but of greater impor-tance to the country, is the existence in the Rocky Moimtains chain of beds of coal;. both bituminous and anthracite coal in thick beds and of superior quality, occur near Sante Fe and in the vicinity iif the gold mines. The presence ot an-thricite in the Rocky Mountains is of great importance in many points of view. One of the chief questions in connection with the proposed railroad to the Pacific has been, where shall fuel be obtained ? Here we have a store of the most campact fuel, at a point nearly midway between the Pacific and the Mississippi. This is one great reason for the construction of a central road to the Rocky Mountains near Sante Fe ; coal not having been found and probably not existing in workable beds, in the lower and perphyritic ranges of western Texas and southern New Mex-ico. Wood is not abundant except at great elevations, and the coal is much' more accessible and desirable ; it is val-uable not only for railroad purposes, but for domestic mining, and metallurgical operations. "There is reason to believe that the Rocky Mountam chain is rich in silver ores, in the shape of argentiferous galena. Stevenson's mines near Franklin (El Passo) l ave long been known, and are very rich. In other localities are very ancient and deserted mines, capable of being profitably worked. Of copper ores there several localities: the sulphuret, with the blue and green carbonates, oc-curs in the Placer Mountains ; native copper and the red oxide are found near Jemez, in the valley of the Rio Grande-resembling those found in such abun-dance and richoess at Arizona. Magnet-ic uron ore is abundant in near the gold mines, am limestone are plentiful in may at some Aiture time worked for iron and steel. S] is said also to exist there in v Besides metal and ores, there valuable minerals and gems— ers the much prized chalchihtl ancient Mexicans ; this is a ~ turquoise ; garnets, of and beautiful colow^ arer ^ ^ ^ the Navajo Indians ; some equal in size and value to the gapneta ffom Bohe-mia Chrysolites are also foun^ It will thus be seen that the mineral tecources of the Rocky Mountains are,^tensive, and of a character to render tK^regioir in a great measure independant bf distant sections of the country. Its ri^d settle-ment and the explorations w^bh must result from the great emigrat^n to the newly discovered placers will ^ot foil to bring to light many new locallti^ of valu-able minerals, and thus hasten tlie organ-ization of a new and powerful stite." INTERMENT OF THOSE WHO FELL M PERRY'S VICTORY ON LAKE ERIE.—The Masonic Fra-ternity of Erie, Pa., propose to'perform this ceremony on the Fourth of July as will be seen by the following ex^ct of a letter dated Erie, Pa., June 7th, 1|>59 : "We are having a grand Masonic par-ade and festival on the next anniversary of our nation's birthday. The great ob-ject of the military demonstration to be held here on the Fourth, is to re-inter the remains ot those who gloriously fell in battle in Commodore Perry's fleet, in the war of 1812. Their remains were recent-ly exhumed by the excavations now mar king on the Sunbery and Erie Raihroad, at the Bank of the lake overlooking our harbor." itains _ >ld and ^cinity, itably liar iron or beds, many oth-the of the Commlaiioner Teh's Orsat BelL An intereetiiyg trophy, obtained daring the lata 'atuck on Canton^ haa jait been placed in a prominent position lo tke central traasept of the Crystfl ^ a e e .

"Where ?» - " "I don't know." "When are you coming back T "Never."

"You are very welcome to it 1 am sure-but what is it P' "A husband I" . "Why, you might have had that fif teen years ago, if you had only said the word ; but I was afraid to ask you the question." BEWARE or STRANOC LIQUORS.—We learn that a ten gallon keg of brandy was found a week or so ago in the Union R. R. station at Indianapolis. It was nnmarked and nnclaim ed, and had laid in the station so long that the oldest inhabitant thereof did not know whence it came. The ten-gallons had not even " traditionarv history." A prying individaai employed about the station, bored a hole in the keg, and drank, and pronounced the contents to be fine old French brand v, with a peculiarlv rick flavor. The editors of the papers, noting around in search of items, found this keg ; they drank, and pronounced the liquor good. The Union station <vas well attended by the editors daring the entire week. But al-ts ! there must be an end to all soblanary things the brandy "gin eout." The empty cask was rolled out, in doing which the head drop ped out, and lo! inside we the remains of two deformed babies united together Siameso fashion ! Then "peculiar flavor" of the brandy WdS accounted ht.—Madiatn (Ind.j "Courier. Gaess they donH have the Maine L&w out in Indiana, which says there must be pure li-quors sold THE ET« or THE NEFDLB.—A recent trav-eler in the Holy Land informs us that there is at the side of the principal gate of Jerusa-lem a small one. which, upon occalsions of great urgency, was opened for the admission uf persons after the great gates of the city were all closed for the night. This gate, from its small size was called the Eye of the Nee die; and to get a camel through it at all was no small task—for a leaded camel to pass was an utter impossibility. With the alAiTe fact before the mind, one can see that the words of our Saviour, when speaking of the ''straight leait" and the * rich man," were mere literal than many suppose. And we see bow as the rich man passes into the narrow way, the sides and the low top of the straight gate scrape ev erything from him in which he had before trnsted. No one can take anything but him self throngh. Far easier is is to strip'a cam <>1 of bis harden than to divest a rich man of bis tnist. A western editor, acknowledging a prer-ent of a buffitlo, says, 'The smallest fa vers thankfully redev^' Straubenzee, commanding our forces in China. The bell weighs about two tons, l u whole surface is painted in varioaa glowing colors, and is coverttd with inaerip^ons in Chicese aaually miet witb in the duplAy of the fine arts ot China. Mr. Headlam, M. P., haa famished the company with a ca ious history ot the bell, and the temple from which it was uken. The place where the bell was Lang is called The Hall of the Genii of Rternal Spring," and was built in honor of, and dedicated to, T<e-Pih, a famous poet, orator, and statesman, who Lved under the Zang dynasty about a thousand yeais >ince. Le-Pib's mother. 4t is said, had a verj curious dream, in which she imagined that she had swallowed the star King Sing, which is ihe same as the planet known tu us as Venus As a consequence the lady conceived and brought forth a son, who, as he srew, display-ed most extraordinary talent. Like many a great genius among the * barbarians" he was however,very fond of «ine,and his greatest^ea'a were invariably achieved, wliile under the in fiaenceofihe Chineae Bacchus. The great man, whose parentage was derived from Ve nus, found great sources of enjoyment in boat-ing, and loved it more especially by n'>ght.— On one occasion, *ftet he had qy^fied many cups of the rosy wine, and had sung some ot his most exqqisite and sentimental odes, be saw-when looking over the side of the boat the moon reflected on the water The ardent youth sprang over the side of the boat to seizi-the Queen of Night. '1 Le attendants in thf boat looked over, the side, and saw their poet master go down straight to the object of his desires * an exemplific. tion," says Mr Head lam. "of bathos under the head of invmoveritas ' Since this marvelous adventure, Le Pih has been worshipped by the i hinese, and count-less fanes hive been erected in his honor. Ii is said that when Le-Peh is being worshipped in his temple, a pencil in the bell is seen lo more and write various characters in the sand over a large I ray placed on the alter, the char-acters inscribed being always the names of such individuals as are peeu ittrly pleas'ng to him, aodiwho are g nerally literary n en, and mntst conspicuous ampng* fti— »* gr er of the wo Id ; i.'saved, I shall be m sinner saved by grace." "Had it been at a camp sronnd or even in the chorcb.'* said brother Stevens, would have shouted lond. I nev-er wanted to ahont so bad in my life." The place was turned iato a sanctuary. We all wept. The farewell was touching. "Good bye. General, God bless you." "Farewell. Mr. Striitgfield ; I hope we shall meet where wars arn no more!" And doubtless they have, the General and his soldier-not as at first, but where UMn r>da TMil'ilif—- -• - Teh Ming-Sitm the Chinese commissioner who took so distinguished a part in the late hostil-ities. .Commi!siun«?r Yeh, as he is more fa miliarly known to Englishmen, bnili the "Hall of the Genii of Eternal Spring," and among the temp!e properties were this large bell and a large drum, whi h would hav.e dune honor to M. Julian. The incripiions on this bell are the composition of the ex commissioner him self. 1 hey dedicate the building to Le Pih, invoke the protection of his godship speak the great praistrs of the bell, but dwell at much greater length on the virtue of Tfch himself. We have been favored with a translation of the inscription- of which the following is a part: 1 he'hobgoblins and sneaking reptiles, like cicadae and locusts," (meaning the Tae-ping- wang rebels) "have widely spread their devastations; (referring to the rebellion check ed at Canton by Yeh s vigorous measures.) In the west is that bright star Chang-Kang, glorious and resplendent," (that is the deit> known as Le Fib ; here Yeh speaks of himself —the diciple thruugh whom the god works.) "It looks down on this nether spere, and pro-tects the eastern quarter." (i e. Canton ) It rules and controls the plundering bloody ones: it dares to strike with awe an immense territory. From beyond the seas has come opposition, but the old regulations will nevertheless remain in force." (En-glishmen of course.)— "Magnificently have I erected temples ; I dare not in-dulge in idleness." GKK. JACKSCH AND THE METHODIST MIH-ISTCR.— In the editorial coriespondence of the Nashville Advocate, appears the following in teresting remineis. nce of Mr. Thomas String' fie'd: 1 must tell of an interview with General Jackson, which brother Stringfield with my self had, about twenty days before 'he Gener-al s death. We were riding along and called at the Hermitage. General Jackson was sick and not seeing company; but the name C Thomas Stringfield was a password. String field was a soldier under him—a Christian soldier, for he was converted at 8 years of age, and through the war was stedfast as well as brave. We were shown into the room where the old warrior and statesman whose fame world wide, sat feebly in his arm chair. I'he greeting between him'and Stringfield was hearty. It was like a ib'^eting of brothers long parted. The sight of Thomas Stringfield and the thoughts rrcilled, put the old General in tears They coarsed djpwn his lurrowed cheeks General Jackson was a man of tears, notwithstanding his iron nature. '-Ah Mr Stringfield, what times have been since we first met! You were a boy in camp at Emuchfaw, and your head was bleeding rom Indian bulie:a." So it was, and brother Stringfield's forehead bore the sear to his grave. He was a modest man, and quickly turned the conversation from himself. "Well, General you are weak and failing now, 'how is it with your sou!.'' what is your prospect beyond the grave 1'* To which the General replied: **My friend, I am not afraid; tu die," a paase --"My hope u in the Redeem FnbUc Acts.
