What Prof. Hannah Reports of tome of the
Largest Mining Property in the State.
Prof. Hannah, of the assay office, has
just returned from a rlsit to the mines of
Davidson county. He gave the following
reports to the Journal man yesterday :

treatment of copper ores, with eight so-
tion tanks and leaching and precipita
ting vats. This mine is operated by the
Messrs. Clayton & Co., who also operate
the Ore Knob Copper Mine in Asliecoun-
, THE ORE KNOB.
At this mine the managers report an
output daring October of two tons of fine
copper ingots per day. The dttpth of the
shaft is now 400 feet and 3001 men are
employed. This is probably the richest
mine in the State. In 1870 it paid its
stockholders $200,000 in dividends. The
vein at points reaches a widthof 22 feet
and, the cost of raising ere there during
the years of 79, '80 aud '81 ranged from
sixty to sixty-five cents.
This mine is also in Davidson County.
It has been worked to a depth of 650 feet,
the second deepest mine in the State,
Gold Hill in Rowan having been worked
to the depth of 750 feet. Nothing i be-
mg aone at tins mine now, as various
.! lii ji mi ..
uimcuiues are in ine way. i hp title is
in some dispute, and although Prof. Han
nah thinks that the north end of the prop
erty may develop some good bodies of
ore. the old vein is ninchinr out. It is
owned by a Baltimore company.
, SILVER VALLET.
At this mine also in Davidson; County,
the; usual force of about sixty men is at
work. . The vertical depth is about 110
feet. Its operators have recently made a
contract with Richardson & Co., of Swan
sea, the great smeltjng point in Wales
for: tho eutire output of the mine for three
years, including what ore is already on
THE EUREKA AND LALOR.
At the former of these nothing is being
done, at the latter a force of 68 men is at
work and a depth of 148 feet has been

"The noble hearted liberals" are thus re
lied on to aid the party who slanders our
Courts. Henderson appeals directly to
the colored men and tells them that "the
noble hearted liberals' are villing to
help us. Help who t Why, the colored
men of whom he is speaking. Help us
do what t Why, get control of the gov
ernment of North Carolina, both County
and State. Ye "noble hearted liberals"
what say you to the proposition ? Are
you willing take "this man and brother"

ernment founded and perpetuated by the
best and brightest intellects the world
ever saw T If you are he has marked out
the way for you to accomplish that end,
by assenting to his slander of oar Courts,
and by puttiug him in power to meteing
out justico to you and jour children.
White "liberals" of Rowan, are you going
to help Henderson to rob yourselves of
the right to govern jour own County and
State t If you are, vote the liberal
ticket. It will be a revolution which no
Democrat can take a hand, except to
prevent it. They have struggled for
years to establish wise and good govern
ment. The widespread peace and pros
perity of all our citizens, white and col
ored, proclaims the success of their efforts
from one end of the State to the other.
The democrats of Rowan can have no
hand in pulling down the work of years,
that a few bad men many win office.
