ASSAY OFFICE  Gold Dust Assayed, Purchased or Taken on Consignment.  Quartz Assaying at Reasonable Rates.  [n our issue of Sept. 21st last a  few extracts were made from the  Mining & Knginkhkinc; Jouk-  nal d" New York, from the first  of a series of articles . by W. M.  Brewer, M. 1C, on his observations  upon this district. Iii'the last issue receiver!, Oct 19th, the second  article appears, which deals, in detail, with the different creeks and  properties which' he visited. The  article is too long for us to quote in  full but a i~ew extracts may prove  interesting reading, In stating his  opinion a.s to the ''auriferous zone,"  Mr. Brewer says:  "According, to. the geological  map prepared" by J.'C. Gwillim, B.  Sc., of the .Dominion Geological  Survey, there, is quite a,n extensive  area .of qjiartziles and slates, designated a.s 'gold-bearing rocks,' east  of Uiejiouiidaries of.the limited area  of'-uuagnesiau rocks. Wlietlier or  hot the creeks which flow through  the territory .covered' by the quartz-  'zites and slates have been prospected thoroughly,or whether the auri-  ferious area is confined to that laid  down by Gwillim, the writer could  not ascertain on reliable- authority.  One fact, however, was observed by  the writer during his examination  of Spruce creek, that Blue Canyon,  13 miles above the 'mouth ofthe  creek, where good pay in placer  gold occurs, is beyond the boundaries of tlie magnesian rocks, the  country rock being a dark blue or  black graphite schist-or slate. For  this reason, alone, the writer is of  the opinion that a most thorough  exploitation of tlie territory beyond  the present known gold-bearing  creeks is warranted.  The geology of Blue Canyon  shows a decided change from that  on Pine and Boulder creeks.  Instead of magnesian rocks and diabase dykes, the Canyon has been  cut through graphitic schists of a  dark blue and black colour. The  bedrock iu the Canyon is quite porous, and, in mining, it is dug up  for some depth, as examination  showed that much gold was held  in the cleavage planes.      ��� ,   ��� .���  Innumerable lenses and veinlels  of quartz also occur,.conformable to  the planes of schisfosity. These  lenses of quartz are.of greater thickness below the -canyon;;, at one  point about 2cbo feet below, .a wide  ledge of sugary quartz ..occurs from  which, on the .surface, good pay  has been taken by the nlacerlminers..  Several mineral claims have'been  staked about one and a half miles  above the canyon, where quartz  ledges also occur. From the rusty,  appearance of the slate or schist,'  and the occurrence of so many  quartz stringers and lenses, as well  as the fact that so much gold is  found in tlie cleavage planes of the  bedrock deeper than placer gold  would ordinarily penetrate-, it might  be inferred that apoiliou at least of  the gold mined from Spruce is clue  to local deposition, and that if  thoroughly exploited extensive  bodies of the s'.aie or schist may be  found to be auriferous, which possibly will carry sufficient values to  pay lor working as lode mines on an  extensive scale. v Fuel ought lo b2  obtained at a low rate from the  White Horse coal fields.  "The line ol strike of this schist  is N. 200 \Y\; tlie dip is almost  vertical. This schist is cut by  quartzose dikes, three of which are  very prominent, lying nearly parallel to each other, about 600 feet  apart. In one of these lenses or  large kidneys of quartz occur, together with some mica. .From Llu-r  general appearance of thete dike-  they might be classified as altered  granite. ,.   "  "The writer could obtain no de- '  finite information as to the extent  of the schistose.-.-.out*try rock, of the  Blue Canyon district; appaienlly it  extends for 'some distance down  Spruce creek, but no natural exposures of the geology could be examined, except at Blue Canyon,  nearer than distant mountains.  Average Steady.  The average temperature for the  -the last week, taken five times  every 24 hours, from noon, Friday,  8th, to noon, Friday 15th inst, i.s as  follows: :]  above.  8th.  29  9U1.  23.8  10th.  26,6  nth.  27   .  12th.  2 7.2  13th.

The  highest reached being 32 above and  the lowest, which was on the night  oftheioth, was. 12 above, The  wind was south-easterly during the  early part of the week, turning to  the north-east latterly. There has  been one slight fall of snow, during  the night of.the 14th.  The total rainfall for the year,  from May 14th���first ���raiuf.ill���lo  22nd October���last 'rainfall ��� was  .6.23 inches.

Dr.   Seharschmiclt  stated Pnr-behalf of the railroad thai  he was glad to  bs  able to say that  ' .passengers  coming  or going could  have free transportation in the com-  - pany.'s   canoes .'���' over   the .diflereut  portages.    He   further   stated that  the   trail /between   Log Cabin and  Otter   lake   had   been  temporarily  flagged,   and  that, from  latest- reports the trail was ir. excellent condition.  We have been informed that one  or two capitalists have expressed a  desire to visit the district before the  freeze-up, but refrain from risking their lives on a trail which is  supposed, on the outside, to be beset with every danger which the  imagination can paint. It is a pleasure to learn that these dangers are  iu the imagination' only, and that  facilities for gelling in or out  are still accompanied' by no greater  hardships or inconveniences than  when the boats are running.  Oi;u congratulations are extended  to Judge Thain, the new incumbent  of the Bench.     Mr. Thain has been  appointed   Stipendiary    Magistrate  for this district, to take the place of  Mr. Woods, S. M,, while   on  leave  of   absence.    The   appointment ol  Mr. Thain lo this responsible position is received  with general satisfaction, and if conscientious  attention to his  duties is any   criterion,  we will have an  exemplary magistrate in Mr. Thain.  bn/the.'StreeLs, which,/in tlie inter-  es i,of Jlhe,': coin muiiity;:.calls .Tor .ex-  plaiialioiLtrpnr'bur-fl'ostuiaster/the  Department brZ the Canadian .Deye-  lopmeiitCc).-'���the ni'ail'contractors.:  ���VI.-;:. respectfull y.;'i ;beg, /,--: I here fore,  that/ypuv 'will /be--kind:enoLigh.lo  publish;/tliis:-letter/in the:-'.c'oljiiiin's  of your valuable" pa::er^v//i:'.yy '- .������'���''  //Up tbvlhepresent'dale three mails  have."arrived   in Alliii,:.which, -I ain  given vto/unders'and, aggregated :in';  weight "^considerably v. under./: .300,  pounds,vaudvitvliasbeeii stated that  over-;4poyp6iinds;/pf':inailAveredelt  ^ttDog'/Cabiir/by-iUhe/mail^carriers:  arriving pn .Tuesday .alternopii/last!;  The mail   left, oyer /is said by tlie  carriers;" lo /have/been papers, 'aii:d'  parcels, only,   or  matter other���tliiaiv:  Fir.vl Cla-s maib/v     /     v    /,.,.,'  v   t. have no means of deliniteiy as-  certaining,,the- nature of the winter  iuail 'coiilract   between   tlie Postal  Dspartuieut and the C. -D..

"Winter   Mail," - it ..was .therein,  stated   that   the parcel post service  to-Atlin would bexliscontinued during the winter, but  on   making enquiries at the office here, I  am  informed by the Assistant Postmaster  that   no  instructions  have been received from the Postal Department  cancellii-g . the , parcels post service  during the winter.      , '  Now, Sir, it seenis to me a most  arbitrary proceeding on the part of  the   carriers   lo   have   left such a  ' . ���*   !���'���  quantity of mail, especially in view  of the fact that t'ne trail between  I.pg Cabin and Hale's is in first-  rat<; condition, as I. have learned on  good authority, and is proved by  quick trip made with the last mail.
