What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Several large triangular -nailed Dutch ships are between us and the coast. These we leave at a rapid rate. Here I be- hold the most magnificent sunset. 1 had often heard of the beauty of a sunset at sea but never saw anything to equal this. The sun resembled a vast globe of fire and the whole hori- zon flames emanating therefrom. Even long after the sun had sunk be- neath the waters, the sky was moat brilliantly illuminated. This will al- ways be a,guide to my memory, point- ing back to Trafalgar Bay, the scene of the great naval feat and battle, and death of Lord Nelson. Glorious Nelson! well may Englieltmeirtake a sad pride in his noble memory. It is night and we are passing the famous Rock of Gibraltar. Oh! what I would give to ‚see this wonderful spot by day. But the dim lights was .all I saw of the grand fortification. We are now nearing the African coast which towers in rugged moun- tains, rough and uninviting. We did not pass clime enough to see them properly; however, I saw smoke in different. parts, and from hence con - chided this part of the dark continent must be inhabited. A sailor after- wards told me that it is a,great wine - growing • country; he also said that this particular port used to be the infamous scene of that miserable traffic in slaves—thank God, UQW nearly ended. Sunday morning a regular gale is blowing, so we have to keep below and spend a most uncomfortable time holding on for dear life.

Nothing but an illimitable expanse of sky and water timed into, to our inexperienced vision, fearfully high waves. And as the vessel cracks and groans as if in travail, we expe- rience our utter helpless condition. As the ship staggers along her course we school of porpoise playing around the ship. At last we are in the Bay ef Biscay, that dreadful place of winds and disquiet. Our strong craft reels and pitches like a bit of cork. My worst ideal is met by the dreadful hours, shipping coal and water. This was a very lively day of recreatian to Us; hardly had we come to anchor' before there were about forty native boate, ladened with' all kinds of fruit, OU\ of the ship's officers, here mailed our letters to friends in' old England.

Politics! UPPER BASIN MINES. tCorreapondence Helena Independent.] About one mile north of Jack's mountain, on the head of Jack's creek, is situated the quartz camp discovered by the Fisher Bros. last July. About a dozen men are in the camp, and some ten or twelve loca- tions have been made. The country rock, or, as the acientiet would say, the \bedding plain,\ is of granite and porphyry. The leads so far as devel- oped are very promising, thoore con- sisting of carbonate and galena, and running well up in geld. The best developed lode and the one showing the greatest quantity of ore is the Bullant, owned Fisher brothers. A tunnel 1 ce in engthhaa been run in on the velu ' and upwards of 400 tons of Ore teken out by two men in the plea six months, and the face of the tunnel shows a body of ore seven feet in width whieb • samples $50 in gold and silver. To. a depth of thir- ty -live to forty feet the ore consists of carbonates with an acesusional bunch of galena. Below that depth it changes to iron and copper pyrites and gray copper. For the amount of develop- ment it is the best mine I have ever seen. A contract has been let and the ore is now being hauled to Wickes for reduction. The other prospects have mostly been diecovered this summer, and are not developed to any extent, but they show good ore, and if they prove to be anything like the Bullion time camp will be a hum- mer within another twelve mouths. • Judge Davis of Helena, has Bever - al properties bonded in the neighbor- hood of Overland gulch, which is just across the dividing ridge, lying be- tween Basin and Cataract, ou the Cataract side. Mr. Ciummersell,• of St. Louis, is developing the old LODI* Schniedlin property, on Overland, Bill Winkelman is running a tunnel on' his lead At the head of Rocker. The Axe boys are pegging away at. their placer and quartz claims, and .em to be in a fair way to make a fortune, after more than twenty years spent in mining. Work is still progress* on the Alpine company's mines o4 the Three Buttes, and a survey had re- cently been made with a view' to securing a ‚government patent. A large body of ore has been encounter- ed in the Little Alma hod', hut as yet it is hew grade. Some rich specimens of gray copper have been found, how- ever, which indicate a better - quality of ore ahead, and if the wine Is work- ed systematically awl intelligently it ought to pay. The Barbary lode, eft- uated about one eiile southwest of Bald Mountain, is producing a fine quality of ore from a seventy-foot shaft. The streak is over two feet in width and rapidly widening. Average samples gave returns of $20 in silver and $45 in gold. • The Talequah, a lo- cation on the same lead, is being de- veloped by a shaft, and the prospects for a good mine are first class. Work is to be commenced next weele on the Mugwump lode, situated near the above, and a hundred -foot shaft will be sunk. The mountains are covered with prospectors, and most of them are haVi»g good success in discovering leatljof value. They all seem to be diggers, not scratchers, and are not afraid to delve into the earth. 'It is with great regret that I an- nounce the closing down of the Lady Leith property on account of financial difficulties. It bats long been consid- ered one of the beet mines in the dis- trict, and I am positive in the opinion that a few hundred dollars judiciously expended in driving the tunnels ahead would place it on a self sustaining basis Ind eventually bring it in the column of dividend paying mine« of the Territory. The Lady Leith Weet mine has also been awed temporarily on account of too raubh water. Oro running over $300 to the ton was encountered at a depth of 100 feet but the flow ef water was so great on crosscutting the vein that it was impossible to handle it in sinking. I understand the owners have ordered a steam pump and hot, and on its erection will sink to Witapth . of 200 feet.
