Manchton, writing in the  Inland Sentinel, says:  ' Veins are the filling of cracks  and fissures. They may reach  only to a limited depth or be confined to a single bed. They may  be no thicker than paper or  many yards in width. They may  ho, clustered so as to make a 'net,  work. - They are broken and displaced in the same way as beds  ' of rock.' The principal materials  -with which they are filled arc  4-jnarl/-, granite, metallic ores,  calcite and dolomite.    They  are  'nirely, found except in regions  where'tlio rocks have been much  disturbed.    They generally have  1 a'parallel direction in any region  and very often there are twosys-  foms of veins, the direction of  T-he latter ones being at a slightly  different angle ��� to those of the  curlier     period.      Gash     veins  .which die out at a limited depth  are usually distinguished by the  nature of the   material' compos-  , ing them and the absence,, of the-  srooTings on the walls called  slickensides. Under the pressure which forms fissures dift'er-  '"ont   rocks   behave   in   different  ���ways. , Slates have a tende'ncy  to slit along thodino* of Ihe beds  the result of which is thai veins  in slate are usually bedded veins  part it might have been  derived  from  rocks   below   the   fissure  passed.   The metallic ores might  be   drawn   from   the   enclosing  rocks,  and  there  is   much- evidence  to  show   that   in,   many  cases  they were   derived   from  great depths.'    Thus  a   fissure  cutting through an ancient river  gravel cemented into a conglomerate might draw  gold from  it  and concentrate it .in a vein.    In  the same way where aii old dyke  containing   native   copper   was  traversed by a fissure'the vapors  of which carrying .sulphuric acid  would gather up the copper aud  redeposit it in the vein as   born  ite. copper pyrites or other copper sulphide      The  process   of  forming   veins   in   this   manner  with quart;! and even.of depositing,gold and quicksilver may bo  watched at hoi spings      Copper  pyrites, galena,  bornite/'pyrites  and other metallic minerals have  been deposited in small veins  in  the brickwork  of Roman   baths  abandoned   1,.">00 years  ago   by  the hot water acting' on copper  and   iron   weapons   and    coins.  Veins   of   granite-   required    a  greater heat to make them,  feldspar   being   less easily  formed  than quartznand mica crystals of  any    sine    necessitating    greater      heat. The"     irregular  veins       and    . pipes       formed  in limestone are formed  by' the  percolation of cold water  working  down  the  joints  and often  along 'fissures  formed    by    the  Dykes  although they  were  formed   in movement of the rocks.  deep seated 'fissures.  ' The irreg-. are sometimes ore-bearing,  hay  niarity of vein* will be easily un  dorstood when one considers that  rocks would not  naturally break  along  a   smooth    fracture    and  therefore a slight movement  of  ,   one side would   make wide  and  narrow    'openings     alternately.  'The   faults  in   veins of J en shift  them only a few. inches  or. feet  '  but move them thousands of feet.  The .vein is usually -to Jm found  on the side on which the greater  angle is made by the intersection  of the fault and th'p vein.   In any  < given district most Of the' faults  'will throw the veins io the same  side..   When the" fissures   were  1 formed ���'pieces T of   the   country  rock have  usually  been   broken  * -off and' fallen  into   the   fissure,  causing   -'horses*';'in   the  vein)  Tliose are especially common in  slaty rocks.    Veins have  a   ten-  , dency, to run with the- direction  of the principal mountain ranges  having been formed by the same  movements   which   made   them.  -Thedeepest fissures formed were  those formed in Tertiary or,later  ages   of   rock   making.     Veins  which   arc  ribbotfed   or  banded  are usually preferred.    This ribboning shows that were   formed  by degrees by reopening of ,the  fissures     after     each     deposit.*  These'bands are parallel   to   tho  walls.     Very often 'the material  of the bands i.s the same throughout. Ihe color and proportion   of  metallic minerals contained being  the only difference, butoccasion-  'ally they differ in their composition,    the   band   being ��� perhaps  quartz, than barite,   lhan  quartz  wilh' blende,   thou   calcite,   and  ipiarlz-again/   Calcite and quartz  are fjio most common matrix  for  i.hc ore in llie veins.  The lillings  of  vVins   were   noi   poured   into  i,])0 fissures in a molleii slate   as  is   shown   by, their   noi   having  lransver.se    columnar   structure  ���siich as some dykes have, due to  cording after deposition.    There  are als^ oilier points about Ihein  which   show   this.  Quartz    i.s  formed al a low heal by moisture  acting upon the silica in the  roclc. With greater heat, it  would combine rritn' other compounds and pure quartz would  not be deposited. Calcite is  formed by cold water. The same  amount of heat which i.s required  fo deposit quartz would also a Iter  sli'ale'lo mica slate, chlorite slate  and clay slate- and liinesUmi: to  a crysialine form.. The "material  tint of which the quartz veins  were made would be drawn in  part at least 'from the sid.es of  the fissures by the hot vapors  which would eat  into'the   walls  ing; brought metallic minerals  with tliem from their deep  sources "in these cases the  great'heat ha.st, prevented the  mineral's from being combinations of sulphur and a metal, the  metals beinn found in their  nntive0slate. To'this class'be  long Ihe native copper deposits  of Lake Superior. ,native silver  in Mexico and' other places.  However, it has often happened  that these dykes in cooling have  cracked and been full of -small  holes and fissures through which  the warm waters of the 'region  have penetrated and altered. Tin  veins have been found at a higher   temperature   than   those  of  ���   r ' i  other metals as is shown by   the  character of Ihe quartz and  also  by   the   fact   that  schorl and .topaz and the ores of  Ihe very refractory metal tonip-  sfen are associated  with  them.  When fistjitrcs pass through lime-  stones the resulting veins are al-  ways very irregular, as limestone  is a rock that'is  peculiarly   susceptible tochemical change.     Ln  veins associated with dykes   the  materia] is often largely composed of chlorite and quartz derived  from the component parts of the  pyroxene usually present in them  Many vein sure really beds which  have the aspect of veins, as  the  rocks have been turned up so as  to place Ihe beds-in a nearly vertical position.     These   comprise  many of'the largest bodies of ore  in   Ihe  ivorld.       In   Utah   sandstones mid shale.-, have thus been  iinproguiUod with silver.     Erup-  tivo rooks were   not   (iw  distant  and there lore hot. vapors derived  from then i were a chief fad or in  the chanifH.

Some how or  of her, however, our politicians  nMVusliington are not so eager  as they might be to join in the  clivisioii'of the, plunder. -A copartnership in Asia would necessarily mean an army from two  to three limes as largo as Congress refused to give the.

On  tlie  surface  the  ores  arq likely   to  differ from those found in depth,  carbonates, oxides and chlorides  being   found   near the  surface,  while  at  depth sulphides   take  their place.     Some  curious instances of ore occuriug in dykes  are known in Australia, notably  at Whroo,   where   tlie   fissures  left across the dykes by the cooling of the rock have been subsequently   filled .with   rich   gold-  bearing'quartz.  True veins neaiv  ly always have a selveige on one  side. ..TJiis i.s a   streak  of  clay  which has been formed by water  working its way down the crack  on the side of vein, or sometimes  by movement.    In many regions  veins which are well defined and  workable,   end   by  dividing  up  into a number of small stringers.  Stock works    are    networks'   of  small    veins   which     are  oftdn  mined to a profit, notably in tlie  great copper mines oi Spain,���in  Ihe tin mines of Bohemia, and in  many other instances.   They are  usually   worked   by    quarrying  and the ore is Jiand picked.    One  remarkable instance is that Car-  chaze   tin    mine    in ��� Cornwall,  where numberless tin veins  tra-'  verse china clay.     The old miners did not value the china  clay  and made a tunnel at ,enormous  expense  io  wash   it  away.     In  later'  times   the    tin    ore,' was  thrown away'and the China clay  saved.     The  great chambers in  limestone are  usually .adjoining-  narrow veins which   are  not in  themselves   of   value    and    are  caused  by  the  solutions, full of  carbonic , acid,   eating   out   the  walls   where    its    course     was  checked       and , (   .subsequently  filling   tJicm   with   metallic  deposits.      Often   these chambers  assume Ihe form known as  flats.  Where tho water has worked its  .way'between tAvo, beds,  and   ex-'  cavatcd a series'of"flat .chambers  on each side of 1 he vein.    While  hot water 'and���,.steam    has   had  more than any agent to do  with  the i'ormation'.oi veins,  but, few  mines are working on the actual  pipes oi-deposits of hot springs.  Among  the  exceptions'are the  crvstals    of [Sulphur Banks in California.and  it is  supposed, the great Mount  Morgan    mine    in     Queenland.  Prospectors    will    do    well    to  search carefully in regions where  hot springs and warm lakes with  any 'apparent   outlet   exist., as  theso are the remains of volcanic  action which has died out in comparatively recent times and-.may  have'lelt some treasures  beliind  it.

(j     ./.i, April -'.---The session
ha Mieuced at last in earnest
and those who were hoping for
a,short session, will derive little
encouragement from the attitude
of the Opposition lender in his
speech on Monday evening when
'■the old Cumberland war horse"
showed that there was lots of
tight in him yet. In fact he grew
more pugnacious both in word
and gesture' as he proceeded with
his mai vcHou.s arraingmeiit of
the Government. That it was a
marwllou-, jserformanc-e all'who
heard it will" admit, for whatever
one ibay think of tho subject
matter, the mental activity and
physical endurance that would
enable a man who ha-, almost
completed his fourth mI-oiv to
stand iip in his place in' the
Hou>e for four hours and forty
minutes, and duriuir the wholeof
that time speak cogently. _ aud
with great vigor and considerable' action, with very slight ref
erence to note is a performance
which few men could surpass.     -
Lt, is therefore to be 'regrette.d
that  a   Tiarliaiuentarian   oi such, Sjr Adolphe Ciinui,  whose reck-
oxperieuceand ^;]li;£™f}$'\ Lets expenditures, awarding mail I
should ininiuifze the (.'fleet o* his l ,•       ,   ;

course his supporters vigorously
cheered him on and the crowded
galleries looked interested and
amused. It was an entertaining
evening's performace ami much
enjoyed by a large audience
which could not but have been
struck ,with the aptness of his
own observation made early in
his speech when speuking of
another member of the Elouse he
remarked: "Indeed 1 have come
to the conclusion, alter listening
to the honorable gentleman, that
the great essential' of" oratory is
to be able to .say whatever the
occasion may require without re
gard to facts."
T)lH*ia0,is   no   department   of.

more    ''carefully     administered
than the General Post Olliee and
there   is   no   department    with! ^oi.k r\t:i-;NTN
which Ihe Opposition would more1
gladly Iind fault, if there was the !
slightest excuse for doing so offered them.    There is more than
one reason for this.      la the old
days the department  was in   the
charge of one of   most   reckless
and  extravagant   of   Ministers.
