STOVES!  a generous^confidence;:few 7 ofy his: hearers  would 'have imitated, he tolcr his story:" ApELe  said: that One summer���������some^ years before���������  :he was with, his family for several-weeks in a  . little yalleyi away, up in the Sierras^  While Jie  tuntedjiis children played about the; enmp.  Their? range oftoys were rlimited,> and. when  they*gatheredV a' lot of those smooth yellow  boulders, of which there1-was 'an 'abundanW  tin the valleys they were^sowelLpleased^ with  A them; that whenthey left the valley ithey tQjit  with them a fejv^^he smallest and smoothest for playthings^ but that afterward, wishing-to make a Icing,tramp* and finding the  pebblesheayy/and; toe children having grown  tired of them, he threw; them away;   -  ��������� The oilman's face and} manner convinced  ; his hearers of the truth of his story. ^They invited him' to go with them" to; "a: private: room.  -Haying:furnished;him iiwifch: plenty lof whiskey-���������for which he had a weekness���������they ��������� in-  - duced hirhj nothing loth, to tell them further  ���������of the valley where his children found the  yellow; rook.   He described as well as he was  ab le the location^ of the p lace. ; There were  few well-kn0wn land marks, then, except rivers and bridges.  But he marked on the table  A the route-rfirst tovthe valley^ at the head of  ' Bear river, -then;' across a ridge' to a small valley still beyond, arid then by way of hil is and  ridges which'rhad no names then, and which  ciie could only describe, to the valley of their  searchj lying near, the summit of the Sierras.  ^Finally warmed with good cheer, he proposed  if they would come to his home in Greenwood  valleyj he; would join theni; there and pilot  ihem 'to ���������the place.   They eagerly assented  and the party separated,. ;        ,  No one noticed that the negro who served  r the party with their numerous potations lingered and listened attentively while the old  man described; the valley and marked the  yj^^\'0^^0,y        yy ''^^v^tiBggB^ '  Greenwood went home. A few days afterward the party arrived at his place, equipped  for the proposed expedition���������just in time to  find the old man dying and'see him die. After  his burial they questioned^-his son, a young  lad, concerning the facts narrated by the eld  man. He remembered the circumstance of  finding the.yellow pebbles, though it happened when he was a mere child, and he was  sure he could recognize the valley if he saw  it and perhaps guide them to it. So they  started, and the boy with them. They reached Bear valley and the smaller valley beyond  now Two; Mile valley 5 there they were at  fault. The landmarks beyond were either  indistinctly described by. the old man or indistinctly understood or remembered by them.  They wandered about the hills and valleys  until their provisions gave out, and then returned in dispair, not wiser, but sadder men.  Soon after the negro waiter left the saloon  at Sacramento and disappeared with a companion of his own race. A month or two  later two negroes appeared at Marysville. It-  was rumored that they had an immense quantity, of gold���������that they were literally loaded  with gold dust.���������They both soon disappeared  and were never again seen in California.  In 1849 an ArD������Hca2 gentleman, Mr. B������, was  place, somewhat indefinite, but corresponding  generally with Greenwood's, and sufficiently  accurate to determine its location within an  area of moderate limits.  ;."; Several times'since 1850 tbe few who have  known this story have thought of starting in  search of Greenwood's golden valley; some  trifle has always prevented the execution of  this design. But within the year past, the region of Meadow Lake and Summitt City, in  Navada county, has been found to be marvel-  leusly rich in gold. It is certain that somewhere in the vicinity of this newly discovered  wealth lies the valley where the negro found  his fortune. Perhaps some lucky fellows will  discover the playthings of old man Greenwood's children. -  ; ( This is- no^-fanoy- sketch-.- ---I���������believe there  are gentlemen now in Marysville or Sacramento. _.who will remember their expedition  in search of old man Greenwood's valley. And  if I am not misinformed, a gentleman now residing in San Francisco and connected with  tho press, can corroberate the main facts  above stated in regard to the finding of the  valley by the negro.  . Anecdotes op Bismare.������������������ A couple of anecdotes Of Count Bismark may be accep tab le as  affording some insight into the character of  the man who has persuaded the King>of Prussia to do what he recoiled from a few years  ago. In 1849, the paper which does duty as  (Pnnch^, in Berlin, haying wounded the Bismark susceptibilities, the editor at once re-  cieved a challenge, and there would have  been a duel had hot friends arranged matters  otherwise, when Bismark became President  of the Council, the offending editor, who, was  a man of wife, was to be seen frequently at his  table, the minister making.it a practice to lay  aside all political hostility in private life; Not  many months ago, considering himself personally insulted by the language of the savant  Virchow, he left the chamber and called that  deputy out. The savant, however refused to  fight, on the ground that it was his ; duty to  attack Bismark in the chamber, but not in the  field.,, Count Bismark bas,pf conrse, a hostof  '^cotk^i^l^m^IIS. eldom wears; but when  he does ornament his breast with crosses and  ribbons, he never forgets a Humane Society  medal, which he received when twenty-three  years old, for having saved a man from being  drowned at the risk of his own life:  A Laugka.bt,b Incident.���������One evening at  the theatre, John Pboenix observed a man sitting three seats in front, whom he though he  knew. He requested the man sitting next to  him, to touch the individual with his cane.  The polite stranger did so, and the disturbed  person turning his head a little, John discovered his mistake���������that he was not the person  he took him for. Fixing his attention steadfastly onjthe play, and affecting nnconscioun-  ness of the whole affair/he left the man with  the cane to settle with the other for ^he disturbance, who, being without excuse, there  was of course a Judicious embarras?:ng scene,  during all of which Phecnix was profoundly  interested in the play. At last the man with  the cane asked rather indignantly :  4{ Didn't you tell me to punch that man  with ray stick V9  ��������� ������Yes.������.

So clfectually have the public  been drugged, with such mixtures that the true proper-,  ties 'ha'v^be'eri* lost"sight of," an\V maiiy' pref l:rVi''I'fl������cfe"  rt'n\V\ililfelflrilti-^lftili"''tdr^S'ri tik 'ri'cJliW "spirrc UilU' al'b'ink.  ���������General as is the use of Colfee, it is little known that  in con densing the vapors extracted from the berry in  roasting, a liquor is obtained of the most nauseous  taste, and of a scent tho most unbearable.    Under such  circumstances it is evidently important that all tlie  gases and lluids extracted by roasting should be carried oft as quickly as possible, in order to prevent their  returning again to the Coffee   which is tlie case in the  conIIued cylinder.    Tbis object is admirably accomplished by the new an-1 patent "Conical Coltee Roaster1'  as used by FELL & CO., Victoria, in which tbe berry  is directly exposed to the radiated heat, and the vapor  extracted carried oil' instantaneously.    In add it inn to  the advantage to be derived by the rapid removal of  the steam containing the objectionable properties, tho  pure aroma of tne Oof tbe is retained, the cssviuial oil  b'.iing preserved and not exhausted as in. the Cylinder  Roaster, where the Colfee is ivquired to remain a much  longer time in ennsequence of the steaming it under-  gov's by the confiiied steam.   It is chemically impossible to retain the qualities or arrest the deterioration of  Cofl'jo when groand.   Tue liea t engendered by the pro.  c.'ssof roasting, and especially of grinding, creates an  action in the elementary parts whicb gradually destroys  its fitness for drink.     Bin to retain the essential oil  which it contains we have it encased in tins containing  from 1 lb. to 28 lbs., and which c;in be had tram auy ot  ttie respecta b le d ealers.

THE CARIBOO SENTINEL  THURSDAY, NOV"KMBEiri^8i3fc;'H  THE FIRST  EFFORT  There is a feeling aboutimaging a "firtT^h-  which brings but, anxiety to the actor and  suspense to tho audience. The young barris"  tor's first attempt at a brief, or the politician  delivering his maiden speech, marks a period  : in tho lives of both never-to be forgotten ;  , but they soon come to know that the effect of  apokert words, even when adorned by all the  graces of gesture and of rhetoric, fall upon  the car but for a moment and are gone for  ' ��������� ever.   Not so with him' who essays for . the  .first time to wield, the editorial "we." Ee  knows that words which are written may be  perused and perused over again in the stillness of the night and of the closet, so that  when he errs he is condemned by a "multitude  . of witnesses." But the cares that such general reflections a3 the foregoing bring, are  but increased, when..we 'think"of the first  - -effort'to conduct, an all but isolated paper  /during the dreary months of a Cariboo winter-  We wish our patrons to consider our appearance in this place as an expression of the  interest we take in this institution. We shall be  jstltid if a good word; or. friendly effort on our  part can serve any of you in the least, and shall  fc>* agreeeably disappointed if the financial proceeds shall be a remuneration: for the labor  'done  We shall write what we think courteously  but uncompromisingly���������we desire to wound  no waivs prejudices or.feelings, but our first  -duty ie to truth, and we put confidence in our  readers that the tone of manly sincerity will  be responded to with caudor and goodwill;  yet we anticipate many errors during our in"  cumbency, but hope that none of them shall  . tie found contrary to rectitude of intention  ^and true independence of spirit.  A new form of government has been suddenly ushered in upon us, and we may safely  aay it is generally well received. Our anticipations of it, as compared with our-know-  ���������>^^^--^:^!B^aw-:^er- *.-r? hopeful in the extreme, and whatever objections we may have  to make to its form or conduct, we shall never  *���������tpect of it either miracles or perfection; nor  * shall we advocate those reforms that we may  think it should grant, in any other than a  lie&cttfui and lawful manner.  We shall also turn our attention to Mining  Law Reform, and strive to discover how many  of the grievances complained of have arisen  tram the -extstan.ee of bad laws, and how  many from the bad Administration of good  ��������� laws.. ���������."'  All miuing interests are entitled to, and  shall receive our first consideration, after  which we shall endeavour to instruct' and  please hy writing on such subjects and making such "selections" as we shall think may  best suit the majority, of our readers.  ���������mih-u.m    ti ill !��������������������������� ���������mi.i.iwn  Rather Rough.���������A fellow who has had "the  mitten" more than a dozen times says that the  custom of joining hands in matrimony is said  to be taken from tbe practice of pugilists  shaking hands before they begin to fight.  -.fiErli you want good Coffee trse Pell's.

This creek runs westward, with a tiibutary  from the north. The party then returned to  the Lake aii d travel lin g south ward found a  second creek larger, than; Williamsons or6  miles long with fine scaley gold ;ih. tlie top  gravel. Returning to the Lake again and still  going south, they came, updii' a third creek,  up which they went a distance of 2| miles  arid found a branch :to: the right; they: went  up,ibi8l/va.ut?li 'J8.nules.;; The nUuyialdep^  on it are,.grinc1pa!.yr; black anii^ore'd"-'-.Bafi'df^  they: then crossed Jhe| dividing ridge and  struck tlits main creek 6 miles from the mouth J  and prospecting it; they found coarse Braboth  gold on the bed rock at a depth of % or 3 feet  ihe fourth;. creek wWcji., is ������������������ tw,fce���������;^s large; as  Keithleys,; has granite bed i rock and no* gold.

Advices from Toronto say that petitions are  coming in demanding that no mercy be shown  to Fenians now -on trial there.. There are  several hnndreds of Irish Americans in Toronto, apparently without, employment, and it  is believed they are there to attempt a rescue.  Three more fenians at Cornwall will be indicted on' Monday for high-treason. Judge  Wilson pronounced sentence of death on Col.

The direction of this range is about  N; W. and S. 13., its greatest elevation about  7000 feet, and its length about 150 miles. On  the one side it solpes gradually down to the  valley of the Eraser, on the other more rapidly  to the lake and river of Quesnelle.  The formation of this range is metamorphlc,  and is composed of gneiss and clay slate with  belts and irregular masses of hard brown  qnartzite interspersed through it. The gneiss  rock crops out along the Selkirk range and  across the head of swamp river; the clay  slate overlies the gneiss, and extends over  all the rest of the district Primitive limestone is to be found here and there overlaying the clay slate, it is highly crystalline, and  in many cases is a fine marble. The direction  of the principal seam or cleavage in this atra*-  tum is N. N. VV. and S. S. E., the other cleavage runs at right augles to the.principal one.  The average dip of the rock is about :*5 degrees.    All main  quart*, ledges  run  in' fh*-  direction   of  the principal   s<;amt   and   all  streams, while running' 011 the bed rock, follow the course of one cleavage or-.'the other.  But these courses are very much altered hv  slides^ and especially by those  belts and nodules of hard brown quarlzite which turn the  streams that   come  iu contract with   them  .around,through.the soft rock.; All the sIream-s  running nor ill and south would have a continual tendency to hug the east bank while  the bed:rock is bare, on account of the dip of  the rock in that direction.   The natural result  of tbis w;puld be,, that after tho creeks had  worn in under the band a sufficient distanct*  tpreh^ild be a slide from  the hill which  wpuldrcpver the old chahhel and.force the  creek back to whence it came; or if the slide  were sufficiently large to, (ill up the whale  channelsto such a height that the rising of the  stream would escape over some lower place,  a hew channel would be formed and tbe old  one^would roinaiua hillchannel.    No limit  can be set to the number or directions of these  channels in this district, the friable nature of  the rock;and the great altitude of the hills,  wbuld have, facilitated their! formation very  much?*' Verylirtle"'iittenUo.n'*b^;)>ecn paid to -   these most important channels until this year,  teufc^he^djscoveries ou Grouse creek bava  excited and at the aame time* instructed na ���������  all. Thtvdiscovery of a.hill channel on that  preek last spring sot about 200 men prospecting for hill diggings., many of whom have  been successful and many more are sure to '  be.: ; Companies have been formed to prospect the; east bank of. Jack of Clubs, during  r^%ftfe?f<>rxl4t^ W^-ik-eV^. ��������� tluiuihey. A   ;  may; succeed in finding a very, rich channel in  that forsakeu creek. There.is a company on  Antler also prospecting in the hill for the lost  and rich, lead of that creek.    .*  The average altitude of the district must  be more,than 2,000 feet above what it is how,  but through the agencies of time and the action of the elements, these mountains have,  no to speak, been ground   sluiced down;  .streams have changed their course* a hundred times, making and unmaking chanuela  at their pleasure.   Iu order to lorm some  idea.: of>how these mountains tumbled and  crutniil.ej^^own, you.have only to. visit mount  Ilgnes.and ascend the western side ; you will  findAhe rock crumbling away without the ac- ;  tion-pf waterier the sunj and at a poiut about.   .  100ft feetvirpm the summit the .mountain ia  UndeOTined, and from the overhanging part,  ���������piecesvweighiug from an ounce to a tout.ar^  laUing-as"; fast as the first. drops of a thunder  ^hpwori (While the nipuntain is rapidly fall-*  ihg toaipwer level, the moss, and at a short  iutervaly;the small shrubs are slowly climbing  up the side of the:ruin, and just how Light*  'fiihg{creek is sapping the foundalioii of thii*  heap of ruins to let it lower down.   It is very  easyitb;discern while travelling down Lightning creek, th������ttthe hills on the left-hand aide  are the most recently formed in that district;  tliey do not seem to be.more than half finished,, and are hardly able to liide their naked-  ���������  ness, and seem to have been " dropped by  nature In her careless haste."   This is all that  is left of mount Agnes that once extended to  the Milk/Ranch,  r All oilier thiugs being equal this should be  the richest.mining district in the world, for  none other has so great a depth of original  alluvial deposits. In .- Australia there are  shafts 500 and .600 feet deep, but these are  through hundreds of feet of lava, scori������, and  eyen>.tertiary formations; but uo volcanoes  have belched forth their ashes to cover and  bide pur channels, and/no rockey forriiation^  lock them up; not a'boulder or a pebble can  be found that is not of the same foi'matiori aa  the rocks over which the^ lie. AH the/ deposits of this'-.djstrict are ���������but the tailings of \  the rocks; th at nave been washed and the hill  and creek channels are the riffles; and if we  take into consideration the gteat depth - and  extent of these tailings, we might form, some-  idea of the gold that may be^r??^-?^  der. its deceptive, covering.���������������  ��������� : ; ,      - i  We sincerely hope that if the Govern ment    c  ever ftts out another prospecting party^ it .will  have for one of its objects the traciug of this  clay slate range beyond the Fraser and determining its extent and limits, in preference to  sending out at a venture into the granite formations of the Cascades, the Rocky mountains,.,  anil the Selkirk range, where rich placer diggings shall never be found.   All these mountains are sharp and serrated in their outline  as if they were but made yesterday, and it is  well known that these plutonic rocks disintegrate slowly, in fact granite is supposed by  all to be the most  durable rock  known,.  These regions are'not condemned; up  tbeir  walls and through their gorges let the prospector for quartz with his hammer, his lamp,,  and his fluxes take his journey; but for placer ���������  diggings we say'ceteris paribus,' the greater  the wash 'or disintegration the- richer  the region. ' Fancy our northern mines with a district of 200 or 300 miles, as rich asCariboo-  on the other side of the Fraser!   Of the rich-  ness-of^that section of country we know nothing, only that a telegraph em ploy ������e is said  to have found a nugget in  one of the poftt  b oles, b ut we d 0 kno w tb at th e " fo rmati ou1'  extends for over 100 miles-bevond.ihe Frasor.-,  ������������Miii���������.miiiUiimawawn! tiS&ma^^  '   a nameless; charxl  tt  XX.
