A few De.orlptlvi*   lleiniirka concern-
Inn the Criiwfi.nl Mill.
The quart-) having hoen ground, and
the gold thus  freed  from  the matrix,
the  precious   metal   is  separated,  tlie
lighter  materials, such  as silica, and
even iron or zinc, are Hunted away by
water pressure  from  below, while the
."���id, ny reason of its greater weight,
falls into the hath of mercury, there to
be   amalgamated,       Wherever gold is
associated with sulphur or other deleterious  mutter, this device of   water
sortitij- by   specific   gravity   operates
taost  effectually.      It   follows, then,
that if the ore can ho ground sufficiently   line, the   sulphur,   antimony   nnd
other sickening elements will be separated from the gold, however small the
particles of gold may be, and the atoms
of gold thus released from their envelopes or adherent, substances, lire caught
in the hath of mercury.     This bath is
presented  in a  clean, substantial  and
constant   state, nut   broken   up into
minute particles  nor exposed in any
degree to the  injurious effects of sul-
���(burets or other source.* of contamination contained in the water.     Herein
is a further secret of the great sii'ieri-
ority of the Crawford Mill over stamps
or other mills that  grind the ore and
mercury together.     The ingenious arrangement  by   which  water  is introduced into the mill under pressure, and
fl.iws evenly  iu an upward direction
oertlie surface of  the  mercury, pie-
vents particles of crushed on, which
have a less specific gravity than gold,
from reaching the mercury.     What is
not gold is forced upward liy the pressure of the ascending column of water,
until  having  been crushed   infinitely
fine by the balls, it floats off  with the
water,   leaving   behind   the   weighty
particles of gold.      Whilst the  water
enters the   mill  with a   considerable
upward pressure, the ilirectiou of   this
���pressure' is   reverse,!   by   the lateral
sweep of the balls, and is also exhausted by expansion  in  the wide   dome of
the mill; so that the very tine particles
of gold are prevented from being ejected with the tailings,
The results ��� litis far attained by the
use of this mill in the field, illustrate
iu superiority for more conclusively
than anv descriptive statement of its
A large number of experiments were
mu.le iu England, in It'll, when mure
than forty different ores from all parts
of the world were treated by the Craw-
Jurn Mill. I'ne Australian ore from
the Raveaiswoud mine, which fails to
yield.more than *.��.'> per cent, of its gold
In au ordinary stump mill, yielded upward of !H) per cent, to the Crawford
Kill, and this without roasting or
chemical treatment of any kind.
Special reference is made tu the Ra-
venewood ore becaused it has not only
defied even* mechanical process Hitherto, but it ia so loaded with heavy
metallic components that even to treat
it chemically is enormously costly.
Xa analysis of this ore is instructive:
Total      (ill per cent.
This is the case of u rich but highly
metalized ore; let us, however, go to
the other extreme and take llie case of
another Australian ore -the ore of
Mount Morgan Mine. The gol I iu
this niiiii'itppenrsto have been ejo.tted
from the interior of the earth iu the
form of siuiim. It is distributed in the
tiniest invisible particles, throughout
a matrix of soft chalk or pumice,- bin
for tne extreme minuteness of the golii
particles, this is au ore which, being
absolutely " free milling," would yield
its gold to i, stamp mill more readily
thull almost any other. As it is, however, a stamp mill will not touch it,
and wus being treated in bulk by ehlori-
iiution. The first test, with the Crawford mill gave eighty-two and one-half
per cent | the second, under a slighter
pressure of water, ninety-two and one
half per cent of gold saved.
These two instances, viz. : - the
Raveuswood ores uud the Mount Morgan ores, the one of extraordinary re-
frnctoriuess,uiid the other soft us clnilli
represent the opposite pel s of the var
iotts characters of ore. With both tin
Crawford null has proved n uiimpleti
success. In the various tests which
have been made ou American ores from
all parts of this continent, precise-!}
similar  results   have   been   achieved.
Cn.Indian tlolil Coin.
The Ciiniuliiiii Trade Review comments on the fact tliut Canada has as
gold coin of her own the gold coins ol
Great Britiiiu and the United States,
Iieing at pur value for tlie littler und
$4.8 i'i to the pound for the former. It
is remarked that ours is a gold currency
ind that silver is merely a subsidiary
metal, being legal tender only to the
extent of ten dollars, while copper i>
not a legal tender for more than u
dollar. It is observed that tho foreign
trade of Canada lining large, she bus
onsidernlile interest iu ull mutters relating to foreign exchange, ami whenever her credit abroad does not exceed
her maturing labilities, she has to pay
��� he difference by the exportation of
gold, which is the great medium of a
foreign exchange. The luck uf gold
euinage of her own bus led uud still
leads to a great deal of friction between
the public and tho government from j
���vhicli this gold is secured for export.
Were Canada to have hor own gold
coinage, with which the government
would invariably redeem its notes, all
trouble as regards foreign gold would
lie done away with. A Canadian gol,I
coin is also needed Hi complete the

Washington, Aug. 18. -On   Thill's-
lay Sscivtary Carlisle made an official
lemand on the North   American Com-
Hernial Co,   for $289,718. Id for rental
mil  bonus of   Ihe  Priiiyloli   Islands.
Sis action is bused   ou au opinion reu-
lerel by Attorney-General Gluey.     In
uis letter to Lloyd Tevis, ol San Frau-
lisco, president of the North American
Commercial   Co.,   Secretary    Carlisle
says :    ''Theaction of my predecessors
in making reductions in the rental uud
bonus which  your company agreed to
pay to the United States under its contract  for   the  exclusive   privilege of
taking fur seals in A.aska wits without
authority of law."     Tlie original contract, made in  1880, fixed the annual
rental and specified  the catch in any
1 your, said  catch  to be reduce I at any
time in the discretion of  the Secretary
j if   tho Treasury.      Ii nddition to the
rental tho Government  wus to receive
$l>,li0 per skin for each seal taken, besides oihei provisions as to the care of
the   natives.     Acting on an opinion
rendered  by  Attorney-General Miller,
Secretary  Charles  Foster  reduced the
catch of   seals  from thu  original contract and   reduced the  rent in proportion.   This action of Secretary Foster's
is now  declared  to  have been illegal,
hence the demand made, which, it, is
understood, will lie  followed   by legal
proceedings iu case the demand is not
complied with.

robbed the strong box ut the British
Columbia Express Co.. securing ">1(J,-
000 iu gola dust, escaped from the
penitentiary at New West mi lister on
the evening of the 11th instant, and is
still at Urge. The manner of his
escape was very simple. He funned
one of a gang wo: king in u ravine on
the west side of the penitentiary
grounds. A picket fence, live feet
high, runs aero.s the ravine, terminating at the twelve feet walls on either
side. The gang was working on lb.-
westside uf the. ravine and a guard
with louiie.l rifle stood sentry O'.ly
fifty feet away. Suddenly be sprung
on the fi>in,e. threw hi* hand up. rested
it, on tlie top of the wall, and 'be next
moment, leaped clean over and safely
roaclie I the ground on the other side.
'lite whole operation did not occupy
five seconds. So quickly was tlio
iistonishiuc feat performed that 'he
guard had no time to raise his rifle
and fire. Rowland is fifty years of
age and only f> feet 7.'. inches iu s.a-
ture; but he is wonderfully agile for a
man of his years. Siarcdv hud he
touched the ground when he bounded
like a deer into the bushes and wns
instantly lost to view*. A posso was
sent out from the penitentiary and the
bushes sparclieo for some distance, but
Rewlarid wus nowhere to be seen,
