Mining Ed. Salisbury Watchman :
One of the most import-ant resources of
our State, that will increase her wealth
and population, consists of the gold and
silver veins traversing the Appalachian
chain of mountains. The country where
most of the important mines are located
may well be called "diehls croft" or
devil's land too poor in soil and too few
in people, ever to add much toward plac-
.Norm e aroima nrst ranx in tne na
tion. That our mineral will one day
make us a mighty commonwealth there
is no question, but as to how soon this
much to be desired era of prosperity is to
come depends much upon the voice, pen
and eleeds of every gooel citizen who is
anxious to see within our borders millions
more of stirring people, giving better
markets for the fruits of our ficlek', better

your doors and suspend business after
seven and a half-o'clock at night, that

will not come in our time. Our guns,
like his, will turn to rusty barrels, ou
hounds, to skeletons and the 'possum will
wax lat on persimmons growing over our
undeveloped treasure of gold and silver
just the same as one hundred years ago.
That you have long ago fully measured
the importance of an honest development
of our mines is attested by the columns
you have devoted to them, and yon kuow
that now is the critical time when one or
two "Wild Cat," or questionable schemes
for deceiving capitalists will undoubtedly
prevent the sale and working of hundreds
of mines that could be honestly placed
upon tnejr own merit3. in order to do
my part toward saving our mines from
unjust condemnation I will briefly relate
some facts with regartl to theSice-le mine,
now called the Genesee, located in Mont
gomery county. A man from Ohio set
tled in North Carolina many years ago
and took up the calling of "Mine Specu
lator." He secured an option or bond on
the Stee'e mine on certain promises w hich
he has failed to fulfill, and offered the
property to II. H. Warner of Rochester.
N. Y. Li 1835 Prof. S. E. Lat ti more, a
mining engineer and assayer of good
reputation, was sent down to examine
the property, in company with a Mr.
Stewart, and to give his opinion of its
value. I have The statement of three
miners, made before witnesses, to the fol-

4th. Experienced mining men will bear
me out in the statement that the so-called
vein on this property is not c-.pable of
producing more paying free milling ore
than will keep a a-stamp mill in opera
tion. The formation is an argillaceous
silicious schist of dark color anel extreme
ly hard, the gold is only found on the
surfades of the lamina of the rock when
broken apart, associated with 1 to 2 per
cent of zinc blende, and generally a 1 the

5th. If we had not the statements, so
lately and seemingly, on the part of
either Warner or the "Mine Speculator,"
so anxiously rushed into the Charlotte
papers of such very large returnr ,1 would
estimate the ores taken out to average en
manse from $2 to Si per ton. The capac
ity of a 40-stamp mill on this character of
ore is about 15bU tons per montftw with a
value, I would Jjudge, in the absence of
trustworthy reports, of from $3, 000 to $b,-
000 which in the case of this company,
with such a large office staff and hard
mining: would not pay expenses.
In conclusion I would advise capital
ists that there is no need to believe as
true the statement published jn a Char
lotte paper that SoO per shar--, has been
offered and not accepted for Genesee
