"News Away From" Home." Under this heading a gentleman in town of reliability handed us the following fol-lowing yesterday morning : I Editors Herald : How often do we have to go away from home to hear news, for such the 1 following is, sent to me from a New York correspondent, which I pass over i to you for the edification of "home folks." In enclosing the slip to me, it is accompanied with this remark: ' "We enclose you a slip cut from yes terday's Sun, (March 2), relating to the Little Emma, the report we believe to be true. ' ' "It is said that Messrs. A. V. Stout, A. A. Sclover, Gen. Baxter, and Dun can, bherman & Co. have bought the famous Little Emma silver initio in ; Utah f .r $1,500,000, and have depos-' ited with Mr. H. B. Chain, as trustee, $200,000 to bind the bargain. The . Little Emma mine is in the Little Cottonwood canon, near Salt Lake City. It was sold some months ago to (lie Bank of California for 4S9u6,000. With the exception perhaps of Silver ' Island in Lake Superior, it is probably the richest silver mine in the world, j The ore is so rich in the metal that it i I can be cut with a knife. Good judges estimate the mine to be worth over 4100,000,000. The ore is brought to ; this city by railroad, and most of it re- shipped to Wales, where it is smelted. I Some of it is sent to Newark, and v. ! turnecl 'nt0 SUTer bars- Several hundred tons ofnhe ore now lie at the J bottom of New York Bay in seventy feet of water, because of a collision with one of the Camden & Amboy ', steamers." Yours truly, A. Z.
