Just  let Vis review the matter laid before his honor  the Administrator of the Government for his  consideration, and then ascertain what redress  ; lias been granted.   In the first place the resolutions plainly and ^distinctly Bet forth "that  ���������.;.<* thei administration of the mining? laws py  . ^Mr.JusticeBegbie in the Supreme Court was  "partial, dictatorial; arid arbitrary in setting  " aside the verdicts of juries, and calcTiIated  - ���������*{ to create a feeling of distrust' in;those who  "have to seek redress through a Court of jus-1  ",tice,^ thev likewise called for the impartial  ��������� ad ministration of jus fa'ce, the establishmen t of  '��������� a Court of Appeal,' or the removal of Mr. Justice Begbie. ila there anything in the document we .published last Monday to justify -the  belief that immediate measures will be adopted to prevent a repetition of those grievances  ^complained of? What does Mr. Birch say ?  " The only resolution it is necessary or desir-  ������������������'���������������* able for me to refer to is that moved by Mr.  - "MaeLaren and seconded; by Mr. Perrofct; in  il which the meeting urges; the necessity of a  '���������" Court of Appeal."    The concluding^clause  ,,   of that resolution is left entirely unjaoticed,  - although it is ,the most, important pafWolfcthe  whole, nam ely, the remo vol lot the cause'of al I  the dissatisijactiori and- discontent that exists.  ���������Instead of. instantly answering, the appeals of  ; the people and appointing a second Judge, for  the creation of ��������� }vhomv,px������urisJQn Ahm--been  :rA jrrt&de?^ which the peo-  ' pie of' the Colony iqutil jr. call, his honor  ��������� the.

It is yer^yevident how-  ���������.lever frfltfn the tenorv.bf shiSibonor/s remarks  that we wiii he compelled to submit to-the tie^  0rees of an������������������irresponsible' ��������� judged yvithout, the  A ;-5 east shadow .of redress .until^it .may-, please  : ^HerlMajesty's Government: .tonunite the col^  ��������� onies..  We:think;that it.is tlie fruity, .of the :Ei-.  [��������� ccutive, even, if hejdoes;no������ possess .the*powet  "?  of removal, at least ..^  ;|" into. the caui'es^qf theIdiscqnten fc that 'exist relative to the acts.of the Judge of the Supreme  Court in recenV cases.; A The-.dignity, of ^ the  v^o(fice as well.as common ' justiqe .;tp :tJie^/community at large demand this.at-thie hands'-of  tbe. Governroent,vand- we trust;that i_his;bonor  . -the Administrator;of the Goverhmehtj-' who  ^vill be-herej soon willlose no tinie in taking  r this subject under his serious consideration.  It is true his honor throws out a suggestion  for the resuscrtation of the Mining Board of  ��������� 18b'3, which he thinks would be able; to; pre-  veut much vexatious, litigation.unider  the  .powers defined in the Mining Laws of1865,  and this is the only satisfactory portion of the  1 whole document, for it leads to the hope that  with his co-operation and sanction: certain  laws may be passed by that body- which will-  eftectuallv put ah end to the tedious and ruinous lawsuits that it has been the misfortune  -of this-community to have imposed; on them  for the past three years. * Now, that there, is a  probability of correcting by the means here  ���������  pointed out some of the evils we suffer under,  -Ht will be the fault of the miners themselves  if they do not rally to the polls at the appoint-.  >ed time, and elect men in whom they eanj������������-  pose the utmost confidence, and who wiil'per  ��������� iorm their duty honestly and manfully both  to themselves and the public.  to the companies that are working them.    If  we are to believe Mr. Hopkin, and we must  supposed that had he not been a credible person, and one who understood mining and mining machinery, he would not have been employed to make a report, Australian companies are paying 30 per cent from rock that  yields in onccase li dwts. a ton, in another 2  dwts., arid-in a third 3 dwts; ; The Black Hill  mining Company has a 100 horae power engine j  driving six batteries of ten stamps each, and  eachstamp weighing 6*00lbs.   The consumption of wood is 150 cords a week ; the number  of men engaged 90, assisted by-4 horses. The  average quantity of rock crushed weekly is 1000  tons, rising to 1500 tons when working softer  materials, casings, etc.    The cost of getting  the rock by quarrying the faoe of the hill is  $1 a ton, of crushing and separating^ cents.  Tbo -crushing machinery being, self-feeding,  and the .whole; 60 stamps only requiring the  attention of one man, will partially account  for the Remarkably small sumv set down for  this operation.   The average yield of 3he mill  for three inonths. was 2.dwts. a tori, value $2,  at $20 an ounce, the net profits earned in 3  months being $8,445, of which $7,798 was  actually distributed amongst the shareholders,  being over-25 per cent on tho capital; besides  the balance earned forward-to the next quarter's profit and loss account   A smaller, company working ore yielding 1������ dwts., after an  outlav of $20,000, made .$6,000 profit .for 12  months'work.  "Some of the advantages which the Australians appear, to have may bo owing to the saving in wages���������the ordinary rates being fully  one-third less than in California; and something also may be owing tp^he^p;QkvJ>������i!jg-j  more iH^bjte^'artd'lEo less intricate separating  processes being necessary.    But the statement that ore can be got out, carried to the  stamps, crushed, and amalgamated for ��������� $156  is so extraordinary as to' command attention.  Mr; Hopkins himself felt that the report" of the  Black Hill Mining Company as to j their expenses "might be viewed with suspicion, and  says rthat>*if the statement of the owners of  the Black Hill Mine needed verification it  would be found iii ihe New perseverance."  :. ';The enormous extent of poor ores, not workable by any process now in use on the Pacific,  bat. which, if this Australian method is applicable; might be profitably mined, Jshould be  an inducement to send a. skilled; engineer" to  examine and report upon the;Australian quartz  minesi   But even the consideration of increased economy in working mines already paying  well;.would.justify the leading- companies  sending an officerat their< joint expense ?td ascertain the truth of these'statements,anc}-answer; the;questiori.whether California canlearo I  ^anything from the example of theyoujnger  gold field of Australasia."    J , '/a A  ���������A "In your paper of Thursday I notice an article on the economical working of gold ores in I  ���������Australia.   You say in substance, that ore is  mined and. crushed for SI 56;, per ton J '-and  oonsequentlyores yielding 2 dwts;and 3 dwts.  per tori, will give a dividend...  It is also stated that the self-feeding. apparatus requires  only one man to 60 stamps, which crush 1,000  tons per week.    I. think this, last statement  must be an error.    No one man is able to  shovel 1,000 tons of rock into a feeding, box  in that space of time.    You suggest that an  engineer might be sent to Australia to ascer-v  tain and study the modus operandi of working ores so cheaply, and if applicable, introduce the same mode of working here.      , .  . . "I will give you a few facts tEat came under  my observation on Australian working. While  I was Commissioner to the World's Fair in  London I had a,great deal of intercourse  with Australian mine owners and engineers,  and, from all I could gather, I found that  their mode of working was wastful in the extreme.'   We had.there several lots of Australian quartz, and.they went to the expense of  putting up in the exhibition yard an 8 stamp  mill to show their working.    This ore was  charged with sulpburets, like those, of our  together; and this is the reason why; all concentrators here fail to perform the separation.  It is not necessary to invent any new concentrators; there has already been invented  enough, if people would only study what has  been in practical use in other countries. They  will find, by following strictly their examples,  that any mine having a large vein of ore paying over $5 of gold per ton/can be profitably-  worked as I will show.  "Suppose webave a 20 stamp mill which:will  crush 20 tons per day, the expenses to be as  follows : Fuel $10; 2 engineers^ $5; 5 lafedrerja  $10; wear and tear of iron etc., $5; superin-  teridant, $4; total, $32. For this : amount > we  can crush and "concentrate. 2ft tons into; %���������:, or  perhaps 2 tons, which we may; either sell .or  work. By the; best mode of working, this one  ton will not cost over $30 or $35,. making a  total of $70, or $3,50 per ton; inmany mines.  Ore can be raised for from- 50 xents to; $1;  consequently,$5 will still leave a -profit^ and'  then we have worked our. pre 2d per cent  closer than thejf do in Australia*.   ;..   ,  A good 20 stamp mill with; all the necessary j.  machinery for concentration can be built for  just about one-half the money most of our present mills cost, and I ani sure they will produce betterresults, J.

The following article and lete from  ���������Tcspondeht;: Which we clip from the Sail Francisco ^BuUeMn,J may not, be uninteresting to  our readers, as shewing' to -what a state of  perfection the improvements ia mabhincry  and new processes fbr the extracting of gold  fram quartz have been arrived at daring the  last few years in Australia and California. It  id truly astonishing to find how cheaply quartz  lodes can be worked in the former country.  The suhjeefc seems to be engaging theearnost  attention of Calitbrnians, and ought, above all  .others to be of the first importance to us  Jintish Columbians, who have hot yet made  ine least advance in this valuable branch of  ���������gold mining: _ , ;  \i- We published on the 22nd mSt., some ex-  -tracte from the report of an English engineer  oa the quartz mining, machinery and processes of Australnv which are well worth the  smdy o every one connected with vein min-  mg. We have many quartz veinsin this country, assaying $10, $20 and S30 to the ton  ores, and the consequence was tbat they got  very little tree gold out, and four-fiftns remained in the tailings. I explained to those  gentlemen that such a mode of working  wouldn't pay, and what they Jiad to do was  to concentrate the ore and w^ork only the concentrated stuff. I was then engaged as engineer not only for the Australian but also for  the English mines, and introduced a system of  forking, which is now described in English  and Australian papers as the Hungarian,process, and highly lauded as the cheapest and  best mode of working gold ores.  '{The works I designed and built were not  strictly the Hungarian mode of working, as  not all the ores were suitable for it j but the  greater part of it was, no thing more or less  than concentration. And this is exactly what  we want in California. Nearly all our ores are  fit for concentration, either by fire or water���������  the latter being the cheaper, We hear a great  deal of talk about concentration, but very few  know the real meaning and fundamental principle nf it. Many concentrators are advertised as new inventions, but none will ever come  up to what people, here want a concentrator  to do.

Real estate has" not  experienced the wild fluctuations which it has  felt in Victoria;- people invest their money for  their own purposes, and seem strangers to purchases for mere speculation.    The neighborhood of Portland cannot boast of the excellent building stone of. Vancouver Island, nor  has it the material for good metalling for  roads���������the stone commonly employed is very  brittle and speedily turned to powder. Brick  is very commonly used, but; complaints are  made as to the quality of the clay to he found  (probably at present it has been affected by  the heavy rains); they can be boughtfor $850  per thousand, I think delivered.    The streets  are being brought into the most praiseworthy  state owing to the efforts of the Corporation,  or rather the inhabitants;- for in,the terms of  the Act it appears that the whole population  forms the Corporation, and not the Mayor and  jgiS?
