In this vicinity there are the following

very short, but we hope to visit some of
these miues during the summer.
CONRAD HILL MINE.
This property, lying in the eastern part
of Davidson county, is one of the oldest
and best properties in this section. It
was our pleasure to visit it last Tuesday.
After a pleasant ride from Thomasville, we
drove into a well shaded and grass cov
ered grove. Dotted on the gradual slope
were some thirty houses, making a strik
ingly lively scene, in comparison to the
country through which we had just pass
ed. The houses were well bnilt, cleanly
kept, and whitewashed; a beautiful con
trast to the verdaut grove which gradu
ally deepened into a forest.
Our party was met by the gentlemanly
clerk, Mr. J. F. McKee, who kindly took
charge of us.
The first thing to be clone was to aee
the mine: Throwing on a rubber coat we
went to the main engine shaft bouse,
where we found a large double hoisting
engine, of 30 horse power, which we con
cluded would be strong enough for us to
risk. Stepping on the bucket we were
soon lauded on the 163 foot level, where
the maiu vein had been cut. There were
several drifts started from this point,
along the sides of these, great masses of
copper and gold ore were exposedr Iu
some places there was exposed solid
"prill copper" to the thickucss of two or
three feet. "Further on we came to the
gold bearing quartz. Holding a candle
near it, the tiny "crystals in the quartz
sparkled like a mass of diamonds.
- These tunnels aud drifts are remarka
bly dry owiug to the constant stroke of
a huge Cornish plu.nger pump.
The're are three shafts sunk on the crest
of the hill, which is cut up by a perfect
net-work of veins.
On the dump there is about 1,200 ton?
of gold and copper ore, which was taken
out-while opening the miue.
This pioperty is owned by the "Con
rad Hill Gold and Copper Company of
Baltimore jCity," and Mr. Clayton is the
Superintendent. They have already spent
something over $30,000 iu opening up the
property, aud are just now ready to be
gin the work of smelting aud milling.
lhey have ready two kilns of brick,
which are to be used iu the building of
smelting furnaces. There is also, on the
ground, a twenty stamp mill, for crush
iu'g the ores.
This miue is peculiar in the fact that it
produces free milling gold ores, copper
aud gold in the same ores, and "prill
Our State Geologist, Prof. Kerr, has
made a - thorough- examination of this
property and has made aflatteriug report
on it, which has been published.
This miue is in splendid condition in
every respect; every thing has been done
in a substantial and business like man
ner, and shows that these gentlemen be
lieve that niiniug in North Carolina is a
practied and profitable business. This
is said because some are inclined to look
on miuing as a species of gambling and
not as a legitimate and thoroughly trust
worthy business. A .
We predict that Conrad Hill will go a
bow shot ahead of the many miues now
in operation in this section, and that it
will bo a dividend paying mine very

Mining: Movements In Alexander.
Prof. W. E. Hidden was in town Tues
day. He has completed the tunnel on
his mining property in Alexander county,
and is prosecuting a vigorous search for
"Iliddenite." The tuunel is 261 feet
long, 4 feet wide and 6 high. He has
souk a shaft to the depth of 26 feet and is
going deeper. On the 24th ult., he again
struck the.vein in which the "Iliddenite"
is found, and made the first find since
October last. Gems to the value of $1,000
were taken out in the space of two days.
Soaie of them were of wonderful size and
Prof. Hidden exhibits a cut and polish

Editor Watchman :
Dear Sir : The local notice in your last
issue, beginning thus: ''The Salisbury
Band went to Chapel IIi!I this week,&c,
is fully appreciated ; but I respectfully
ask you to publish the following expla
nation, because your notice, unintention
ally, does injustice to the picked musi
cians from Statesville, Charlotte and Mt.
Pleasaut, who formed half of the mouth
piece performers composing the Band
who furnished music for the X. C. Uui
veifeity at Chapel Hill; and who only
went because this was intended as the
first effort to form a select X. C. Baud
that could compete successfully with
bauds from other States, all of which
have one, or more, large cities which
support professional baud and orchestral
North Carolina has not one town of
the requisite number of inhabitants for
this; and consequently among her nine
ty bands there is no "oue town baud,"
that is permanently, nor even temporari
ly, fit to reflect musical credit ou the
State. For home purposes in their re
spective towns and counties, many of
them-are more than suitable at times;
but not for the State Universitv. But as
a more pertinent illustration I will cite
the lorktown Centennial where each of
the thirteeu original States will be repie
seuted by a brigade ot soldiers, and to
be complete each will be accompanied
by a hue, full baud, it must be clear to
an tunc tne . u. isnauo would appear
to better advantage, in comparison with
her sister States, without music, than as
attended by the Band ot any "oue town"
in the fetate. And even a picked Band,
of fluent, correct readers aud good per
formers of music, must have plenty of
line music aud thoroughly good musical
directorship. Both of these cau be fur
nished by myself aud brother; and un
der the title of "The Xeaves' X. C.
Band," the heart burning arising from
supposed geographical discrimiua'ions
will besa'a.e !. I his, iu ltst-lf, is of some
importance, when it is c usidend tntt not
one of the ninety is wholly good or full,
viewed musically, and each thinks, "Our
band is the best iu the State." The ef
fort, or experiment is to bo earnestly
made, by which X. C, will appear to ad-
autage in a comparison witn tne lianas
of other States. If I can inaugurate and
firmly establish tlm style of Band, dur
ing the present year, its successful exis
tence aud operation will not depend on
my longer existence this side of the grave
nor even on my remaining in the State,
should I live for years. But if this move
ment is not fairly countenanced by the
broad intelligence aud State pride of
North Carolina's representative sons and
daughters the scheme is already fore
shadowed as a failure.
Yours very respectfully,
W. H. Neave.
