With 'regard .to. the silver mines, I think that Silverton must he one of the richost silver fields in the world. It surpasses, in my experience, and anything known.

A Simple Remedy l'or Smallpox. TnE following lettor from a correspondent of'the Liverpool Mercury will be rend with interest at this particular juuoture :—" I urn willing to risk my reputation aB a public man if the worst oase of small-pox cauriot be effectually cured in three days simply by cream of tartar. This is the sure and novcr failing remedy : Oue ounco of cream of tartar dissolved in a pint of boiling water to be drunk when cold at short intervals. It can be taken at any time, and is a preven tive as well as curative. It is known to have ourod in a hundred thousand cases without failure. I have myself restored hundreds by this means. It never leaves a mark, never causes blindness, and always prevents tedious lingering. If the people would only try it and report all the cures to you, you would require many columns if yon gavo thorn publicity.
