Miners are well aware that the  close season is the best for prospecting.   Setting aside the fact that few claims are working, the cold dry atmosphere precludes the  possibility of rain, and prevents the influx of  water inany shaft or tunnel made merely for  prospecting purposes.    Locomotion is also  more facile to the hardy explorer who is experienced in travelling on snow; though snow-  shoos have the appearance, to a person unaccustomed to them, of being very cumbrous,  they are not so in fact; our trappers and others  u*ed to them from childhood, travel on the  aurface^of the  snow with  great  rapidity,!  and with less exertion than that required "by I  as^  -and  0   .     sum it ootn par  the event to come off within one week  a^erhthe first deposit is made.

Whiie travelling together he informed  Moses that he had been mining on Lightning  creek in 18G2j but had returned the same year  td California, arid had lived in Cala veras co unity ever since; that lie was i an American by  birth; and belonged to������some of the Eastern:  States ; x he also told him that his name was  l^arles'-Blsssing^^nd observed-ai the^'tlto  that as it was a very uncommon name he;  (Moses) iwbiild1 be very apt to rememberi;itJ; if  anything^ejrer; happened; to himi; ^ Mpsesleft'  Quesnelmouth and arrived at Van Winkle on  the 1st of June, but could hear nothing of theij  man; about a week after he arrived;on Williams creek he met Barry and asked< him what  he had done with his "chummyi?^ to; which  he replied that he left; him on the road and  had not seen him since.    Moses thought no  more about the matter until he saw the name  of the murdered man in the Sentinel, when  the circumstancesr above plated &^ed;acrb^  his memory at once, and he hurried to the  Magistrate and gave the information.  This maa Barry, on whom a very strong  suspicion: no.w rests as being tho murderer,  left the creek in.great haste the day after the  news arrived of the discovery of the body.  It is said he is well known as a bad character  to the Police of Victoria, where he. kept a  hurdy-gurdy dance house in Johnson street  last winte,^;.

Uncertainties of the Law���������The Troy Whig  tells a story of a case at law in that State. In  1S55 a man was run over by the Hudson River  Railroad, and his wife sued the Company for  damages. ^The ��������� case \vas first tried before a  justice and the plaintiff nonsuited.;i She :then  appealed to the Supreme Court, arid the nonsuit was taken oft*   She then .trie d: the .cage  before another justice, and got $2500 damages.  The Railroad Companiy appealed this time,  and the .fourth i trial was heard in the Supreme  Court, the verdict of $2,500 being affirmed;]  The Railroad company again appealed, and  the fifth trial was had before the New York  Court of Appeals, which reversed the former  decisions, and ordered a new trial before a  justice.   This gave rise to a sixth trial,; which  came off before another justice' who nonsuited  the plaintiffr   She again appealed, and the  seventh trial took place before the Supreme  Court, which this time affirmed the nonsuit,  but the lady.;again appealed to tho highest  court, and the eighth trial was had before the  Court of Appeals in April last. L  This Court  reversed all former decisions^ the  case down to the justice to begin over: again.  Thus, after 11 years' contest in the courts and  eight trials* the case is where it started in the  Justice's Court in 1855..  New Gimst MiUi.���������Mr. W. H. Woodcock  received per last California steamer the plant  for the new grist mill he is about to erect near  Soda creek. Tbe boiler and machinery are  lying on Ms wharf, and he has gone^ up to  Soda creek for the purpose of starting the  work; Mr. Woodcock deserves great praise  for his enterprise. Within a short space of  time he has built a wharf and warehouses,  besides a grist mill, brewery, distillery, and  an extensive wharf and buildings connected  therewith, and he is now engaged in construe ting a steam grist mill away in the interior, in order to convert into flour the large  quantities of wheat now raised there. We  have no doubt this last enterprise will amply  reward its projector, as ho certainly deserves  to be richly rewarded.���������British 'Columbian.'  ^������- Wo would, call the attention of those  having goods or other commodities to move  between the different towns on the creek to  Mr. H.
