Hearing on Thursday evening that important discoveries hid been made in the neighborhood of Grizzly Flat, we started yesterday morning for the scene of the alleged strike.

But our difficulties had not yet begun; we inquired for the Darlington Mine, and were directed to the summit of the hill, over against We mounted the Big Cottonwood. steep ascent, and after considerable difficulty we came in sight of a tree divested of its bark, which we knew to indicate the spot where the Darlington Mi ae wat located. Striking a little to the west of the tree, we shortly came to where a solitary man was working, wlm proved to be the person we sought, and the lucky discover of the rieii prospect, now known as plore a distance of seventy or eighty feet in any part of the hill without meeting with a vein. By Air. Branuan we were told that The Regulator Mine, Some two or three hundred feet from the Robert Aull, struck a fine body of ore the other day, very rich in quality. From the hill side on which we stood, we fvvnted over to the locality of the King of the West. About seventy-fiv- e feet west of the mine, a Mr. Jones, on Thursday, made a promising discovery in the shape of a vein of fine ochre. A notice has heen posted, and the locality will be recorded in a day or two. Returning a few hundred yards down tV hill, in comunnv witu ur. Roberts, we came upon the Lyons Mine.
