A great many very high assays have been obtained, but the vein averages about 11 ounces in silver and HO per cent. lead. The first class ore runs from Id to 20 ounces silver and 50 per cent. lead. Ten tons of fair ore is being extracted daily, and this week a shipment will be made to the smelter. Tin; croppings are prominent, and the vein has been traced several hundred leet on the surface.

' CANYON, The first extension west of tin Telegraph is preparing to put up hoisting works, but still keeps up the regular daily shipment of 15 tons of ore per day. The Miners Dream, east of the Telegraph, is working 8 men and taking out a small quantity of ore. The upper tunnel is in HOO fret and the lower about fiOO, both following the vein, the latter being 00 feet wide. Tin lead mine is working 15 men and shipping almost 15 tons of ore per day, which nets about $18 per ton. Anew lodging bouse was finished last week, and work lias been com- inenced 'on the new hoisting works. The Yosemite is working 10 men and shipping 7 tons daily which gives 05 per cent, lead and 15 ounces silver. The Old Utah lias struck a large body of carbonate ore and is shipping fully 25 tons of ore per day.
