SILVER MINES IN N. CAROLINA.
Prior to 1838, but little silver ore had
been obtained from mines in the United
States. Indeed, it was not knownjtp ex
ist in this country in its native state ;! but
is mostly contained in the argent ferous
lead ores, from which it was sometimes
extracted. Indeed it is generallv from
ores; the annual product in Great
by the tain, bit
the rest of thedaf, to dry our baggage and take
some astrononiicl observations. The stream
va9 about forty' feet wide, and . two or three
deep, with clear water and a full swift current,
over a sandy bejel. - It -was timbered with a
growth of low bushy and dense willows, among
which were -little verdant spots, which gave our
animals fine gfai is, and where I found a number
of interesting pl.ints. " Among the neighboring
liills l noliced filgments of granite containing

become hourly f more interesting and grand,
and the view bore X-is truly, magnificent ; but,
nritam from these ores, is about 110,000
lbs, valued at some 14 or 815,000. It
seems, however, from an article in tne last
number of Hunt's Merchants' Magazine,
that the. Washington Mining Company,
incorporated by theAssembly ofl Portb
Carolina in 1839, have been operating at
the mines discovered a short time! previ
ous in Davidson county, with' 'considera
ble success. The Washington rrjirie, it
seems, is situated about eighty milsfrom
Raleigh, the capital of the State, and the
present terminus of the great chain of
rajl-road from the North. From Decem
ber 1843, to' December 1814, silver! had
been extracted from the ore to the value
of 624,000, and of-gold 87,253. This a
mount of ore has produced from about
160,000 lbs. of lead, making an average
produce of over 240 ounces of silver to
the ton, 4000 lbs of lead. From tle 'com
mencement of the mining operations up
to November IsC 1842, a period of 27
montns, tne actual product was 2tMH pigs
of argentiferous lead, yielding silver and
gold to the amount of 813.288, this being
the nett value after deducting the charges
of the United States Mint for separating
the 'gold from' the silver, and alloy!, requi
site to reduce it to the standard cpinage.
From the 13th of October, 1843, tol the 1st
of October; 1844, the produce of thef Wash

Doctors : Comer and Anderson, of this
County, were recently called to see Miss
.(it is tfnnccessary to name the lady,)
living in the South part of, Caswell, who
they found under great nervous debility,
and in a mesmeric state.- .The patient
slept a great deal- she. seemed ? to have
fallen a victim to strong lethargic spellst

of repose were iengthy,while she found

she was always in a chiirvoyic state. On
visiting her and finding her asleep to all
intents And purposes the two attending
physicians tested -her.clairroyic. by blind
folding her so that she could not possibly
" sink a wink," even though she were not
asleep. Prom jthis experiment grew the
following results: Dr Comer gave patient's
sister a pbeket knife, to present her, with
the inquiry, Myhoser knife is it?"; The
knife was put in the patient's hand and
the question asked, when she answered,
" Dr. Corner's.w Patient had not seen Dr.
Comer nor his knife. Dr. Cjhen slipt a
pen knife bf his i,n the sister's hand, who
.put it in the hand of the patient, and ask
ed " whose knife is this V (DrJ Anderson
present.) j Patient passed the knife to her
nose, smelt of it, and replied, " this, too, is
Dr. Comer s knife. Dr. Anderson acci
dentally spied patient's mother at a dis
tance going to the spring asked patient
as to the whereabouts of her mother?
She replied, " going to the spring. The
mother was seen returning from the spring
with a pail of j water on her head and a
jng of milk in pne hand. Patient was a
gain interrogated about her mother, and
she minutely described her returning from
the spring told about the vessel of water
on her mother's head, the jug of milk, and
in which hand she held it. She was ask
ed where the horses of doctors C. and A.
were? Patient replied that her father
had put them in the stables, and then told
the particular ;srat)le in which each man's
horse had been put. Patient was then
asked when it'had rained at Dr. Comer's ?
(Dr. C. lives a long distance from patient,
and had not been home for several days,
moreover he was not aware that it had
rained at his house the day before.) Her
reply was " yesterday." Patient was call
ed on to say when it had rained at Doct.
Anderson's; she answered, "the same
time it rained at Dr. Comer's." She was
hasked to. state at which of the two places
fell the most rain ? Her reply was, that
" it rained vefy little at Dr. Comer's, but
a great deal at Dr. Anderson's." All this
was found to be precisely as she stated.
Patient bad no knowledge, not the least
idea, of any thing she said, or of the pre
sence of the pbysicians while she reposed,
when she afterwards awoke from her
sleep, and denied having held any conver
sation. Various other questions were ask
ed the patient, and all that related to any
thing that had taken place, or then in pro
cess of occurrence, she answered and told
about it with the greatest accuracy. . Pa

. a var-a a a. . -
its jnistress. 1 he loot-passer along the
street, however, is excluded from a sight
of anything buttheupperstory of the build
ing, by a wall-at least ten feet high. . If
Miss America be indeed, as she pretends,
a descendant of the renowned Vespuc-
cius, she is playing a role that exhibits as
little respect for her 'renowned ancestry,
as for the many fashionable and distin
guished people in this country who feast
ed and followed her, a few years since.
In addition to the foregoing, we find the
following notice of the Vespucci family,
who were visited, by Mr. Lester, late Con
sul to Genoa." From this it would seem
that the lady referred to is an old sinner.
The Vespucci family are poor. Two
daughters areengaged in teaching school,
while the son, the only lineal male de
scendant, is employed in the Treasury De
partment of the government, at a salary
less than a hundred dollars. The Duke
of Tuscany, however, supplies the wants
of the family from his own pocket. Mr.
L. was the first American that trad ever
called on the family, and they were deep
ly affected by the compliment, as they had
been before mortified at the neglect of our
Countrymen. They are deeply chagrined
at the conduct of their sister, who after
having been the mistress of some dozen
men, had the impudence to ask our gov
ernment for a grant of land to herself ras
the only descendant of the V espucci fam-
uy." z , ' ....
So are we ever destined to be humbug
ged, in ibis country, until our ridiculous
mania for everything foreign shall be ful
ly cured. We recollect very well the fi
gure this woman cut, through two seasons
at Washington ; how flattered by the men,
how envied by the women, how feasted
by the rich, how talked about by the poor,
how courted by cabinets, how gallanted
by Senators, how lionized by all. ' She
was, and we suppose, is still, beautiful in
person, accomplished in mind, and engag
ing in manners. She had the 'address to
push her interests-almost to the success
ful point, but' was deterred by the inter
position of one of those lucky accidents in
legislation which often defeat the best laid
plans of the kind. We have reason, in
deed, to congratulate ourselves, in this
case, that such obstacles do sometimes su
pervene. It would not be a very credita
ble record in our annals that we had been
bejuggled out of a large grant of the na
tional domain, by the meretricious arts' of
" the mistress of a hundred men."
If this title, at the time Mr. Lester was
every member friend or foe, that rose. oh
the iloor. v 1 his cacoethes loquaiai was so -strong
a passion, that his attention was
not confined to public measures and gen
