Undoubtedly, the,mining laws should  be so framed as to ensure con"timioris devel-  opment,. sor that the community, in the first  place, will be benefitted;;- the government  next, and the  mere speculator  prevented  from trafficking.in claims to the advantage  principally of nobody or nothing but himself..  But we doubt whether the law as it now  stands in relation to quartz, will accomplish  those objects.   It works wellenough,in relation to alluvial claims, because" competition  for those claims regulates their utilization.  Alluvial���������: claims, ho weve|, do not positively  require-the; use of such expensive machinery  as quartz 61 aims, and the principal part of  the machinery  necessary to work alluvial  claims is manufactured, from materials close  at band,.by the appliance of simple tools and  ihuscle.   After//the alluvial; miner ;haa? prospected his claim he does not require to send  abroad'.. tor; machidery,/and/he/ cau easily  ; maintain;.continuous^ working ion;his claim-  it the gold be/therer-so ,��������� as.. to comply with  the Mining Ordinance, which stipulates a for-  1 leUure/bf his claim if work thereon-has been  discontinued for a longer period than seventy-  two hours.   With the quartz miner, the ease  is altogether different;  After be has prospected his claim, and ascertained -that he has  a well-deOned  ledge,  then   his. principal  trouble commences just where' 'the alluvial  miner's ceases.   He must obtain machinery  which cannot, like that of the alluvial, miner,  be manufactured by himself on. the spot;-'/He  must obtain the co-operation of the skilled  machinist, or, if there be one in the district;  send his quartz to the nearest mlil^^He/may,  of course, obtain permission to lay over bis  claim until he is able to; procure a mill or  hire the use of one.   In this matter, however*  he is subject to the pleasure of; ther Gold  Commissioner.   So far, there is nothing to  complain of on that score ; but the matter of  laying over a claim lying within the arbitrary  discretion of av Gold Commissioner is by-ho  means an agreeable feature, should that official be possessed of more discretion than  judgment   We do not apprehend, however,  that this discretionary feature in the Gold  Commissioner^/^ operate much  to the disadvantage of the Quartz miner, but  U would certainly tend to create more . confidence^ on the part, of the: miner, as to the  security of his claim if the law allowed him a  certain time in which toprocure machinery.  Say a year or even, two years,.as' is 'the case/  in Idaho and Montana;.-yin;. these countries  the law in that Respect has worked well, the  miner always/having/^ceeeded.before the  expiration of that time in ��������� procuring machin-  ery,. or in selling his^clalm to, those who -had  the means of procuring; it, or in obtaining the  . assistance and cp-operatibn;of inen of means  to work" the  quartz  in. association.    We  understand that this .system ���������.of. granting a  . .certain time to' obtain the means' of working  quartz  claims: has j stimulated  prospecting  ��������� :Wx)ndertuUy well. ��������� A:...miner, ..for instance,  discovers a quartz ledge, prospects it, and  finding he cannot work it himself, either sells  it.or works it in association with others, .but  in most cases preferring to sell it, and again  devotes himself to the task of discovery and  prospecting, and again finds his labors rewarded  by selling his rights to moneyed  men.   In/this way the quartz veins go into  the hands of ^capitalists who can^develop  them properly, and/the prospector is satisfied.  By this convenient arrangement the main  object of all legislation in- regard to mining���������the  creation  of business  and indus-  try\���������is accomplished  to  the satisfaction  of all parties.   To encourage the prospec-  tor, the initiator of business and industry*  should be the first .consideration in framing a  mining law.   Our'Mining Ordinance in this  respect is defective.- Who has'not repeatedly  heard it said that " 1 know: where there is a  quartx ledge, but as I cannot work it or get a  title to it, it may lie where it lsJ!: ; If we wish  to dovelop the organic mineral resources and  invite population to the country we must remove the conditions which in the first place  prevent their discovery, and which after discovery prevent the acquirement7 of a good  title to the -same unaccompanied -with /any  harrassirig stipulations.   We must, .in short;  do as our neighbors have done���������give an. absolute title to quartz veins after a certain  amount of, money has been expended, or an  equivalent amount of labor done thereon.  With the inducements held out by pur neighbors toward: the discovery and development  of quartz,: how /can we expect;prospectors  andt capitallies to give Jtheir time and iuvest  their money in this country with^the preseut  quartz law staring them in the face?   An immense amount of English capital has been invested in the minesi of our neighbors because  the inducements are extremely/liberal.   We  have already/conceded  absolute, title  to  minerals other than gold ; and-why should  we not give absolute title to/gold quartz  veins ?    The ; same/arguments /which  were  brought to bear-on the Government in respect  of coal, copper/arid silver apply with equal  cogency to gold quartz- veins.   In the territory of our neighbors ra^^man^'cahy.;&tsr|uire; a  gold quartz vein and hold it as if it were real  estate by an absolute titleJ   Hence the large  amount of English capital invested there.   It  is not- even supposable that capitalists will  look at our gold quartz veins while the law  requires a forfeiture of all that, they, shall  have invested if work ceases for a period ot  seventy-two hours and ;a second .of/time.  What man of means: with any self-respect  wishes to place himself in apposition which  may frequently require him to seek the Gold  Commissioner  with  the  following   plaint:  So, please your honor, we are compelled to  atop work at our mine, and we wish to obtain  your honors permission to layover the claim  for a while.   Then fees to his honor for his  honor's permission must be paid!' Besides, a  capitalist would be compelled by the present  law to reside constantly at or near the mine  to make sure that his employes kept at work  and prevent jumping it.   Miners are neither  more nor less honest than other men,  but an  opportunity to jump a rich quartz mine would  tempt them greatly.    Their, houesty. is  as  sound as that of old Verges :  " Yes, I thank Heaven, I am as honest as  any man living, thati3 an old man, and no  houester than I.;?  The next Legislative Council should take up  this subject.   What is wanted is the amendment/of the Mining Ordinance so that quartz  claims shall  not., be  subject to the same  stringent conditions as Tegulate the acquisition and working of alluvial claims.  Let the  j Council b e liberal, and p ass a la w: that will  Jput our quartz veins on as attractive a footing  [as those of bur neighbors.   Encourage prospecting by allowing the prospector a year in  ���������which to procure machinery, organize a com-  /pany or sell his claim to those who have the  \means to work it   Encourage development  by giving to the capitalist a good, sound title,  as: if .the/ claim were real estate.   Mere possession, secured by compliance with troublesome conditions, is not what the capitalist  wants. .

'    KELSON'CHECK.    :  The Montgomery co. are talking;of running  ;a'ditch for next year's operations from Jack  .of Clubs creek, a distance of ten miles. This  is a large enterprise for a few miners whose  means to carry on the--work is obtained from  working 'their claim.* Yesterday several  Chinamen started for. Nelson creek.  SWAN LAK3.  The company of three who have been  working near this lake for some months report that they washed up 9 oz. for tbe first  week?s work.   The have run a ditch to a  The Second'.Fbeshet.���������On Saturday night  and Sunday morning a warm rain falling on  the supw-cdvered mountains produced another, freshet, and by Monday evening no  snow remained on tho mountains except in  places ^where sheltered by tbe timber.   As  imual  in such cases, that great' source 0f  anxiety, the bed-rock drain, was thought certainly on this occasion to have V gone in,?  Yesterday, however, when the great rush of  water;bad passed away tbe condition of the  drain,; as; well as could be ascertained, was  niot so bad as might have been expected after  the punishment it had received from two  thumping freshets, such as not have been witnessed since 1865.   Tbe Caledonia diggiugs  were nearly dry yesterday, as were also tbe  Cariboo   diggings,  and   preparations were  made to,.work them.   It appears that tho  drain is choked at. a point between the Welsh  and:Cariboo: claims, and active operations to  clear it'will soon be undertaken.   At the  lower part of tbo drain work was commenced  yesterday to clear out about thirty feet of its  length where it is filled.   During these two  freshets little Or no effort was made to confine  th������e water-to an artificial chanuel as usual by  building a bulkhead, but it seems to have  beeb generally agreed that it would be better  to let the waterrtake its own course, and by  so; dping.. fill -up all the. old caves and shafts  witbitailing3^ thus rendering the drain secure  TromvJiiture>i freshets.   As it is Relieved that  ;the strain generaliy/ls. all right, this plan  ''proves? to havc 'been the best and��������� certaia 1 y  the least expensive, for a bulkhead would  have cost a large sum.   Tbe property-holders  were somewhat annoyed by tbe water running  over the creek side of the. street and under  their houses, but the aggregate amount ot  damage is comparatively small   Looking at  the results of the freshets beyond William  creek a more lively view is.opened.   The  abundance of water enables a large number  of men to work rich claims in places where  water is scarce, and many a miner will finish  the work of the season in a far.more satisfactory manner than was anticipated:   We have  had plentv of: water .all over the. district for  three-weeks past.   Hydraulic and ground-  ?oaxiA Farmers and Speculators.���������  The Golden State well deserves tho hijjh  praises which are.bestowed upon it.   its val'  leys yield golden ores and sands and golden  wheat, but the advantages^'hich nature -ha*  bestowed  upon  it are in a great measure  marred by tbe avarice and rapacity of its  capitalists/ Farmers, especially, suffer from;  the greed  of those  who should' by their  money render  all'the  natural sources of ..  wealth a benefit to tbe entire community, instead of scheming to monopolize all the profits of the producers.   There are speculato.rs  in every country, but California seems to bo .  troubled with more than its fair proportion.  The Sacramento Union, a paper which look?  closely after the interests of the productive  class, never comes .to hand without some ex- ;  pose ot tbe sharp tricks played by the "ring1!  ot speculators.   The commercial column'-of  the last number contains, together with rv  score of such paragraphs, tbe following :���������  "The produce market continues completely  under the control of the 'ring? and every  article of produce is selling at prices which  loaves the farmer nothing for his labor.   It  is but poor inducement for agriculturist* to  come to this State, when good farming landa  an> hftld at $f>0(75X$������lftfl hnr ��������� strive, and  fthoir.d  v*. *.*, x wwww ��������������� oto percental, from which  costs of commission, bags, transportation and  handling have to be deducted.

It is this feature inmir 'businesa  system which proves that our financiers favor  speculators at the expense of producer?.

Tbe absence cf; tail freshets during tlie past  few years was^ something incomprehensible  to "old hands,"who regarded them as something inevitable and necessary to realize, the  fact tbat'they were in Cariboo, and as'highly  essential to wind up their operations for tbe  year successfully.'

It came to within thirty feet of the ground,, when it left its  phosphorescent train, and with a thud, similar  to the bursting of a rocket, it discharged into  ' the earth.
