MINING   Our mining readers will do well to to look over the elaborate and able document prepared by Mr Cowan, with reference to improved methods of working our auriferous ground, and to avail themselves of the opportunity of ex- amining the carefully prepared diagrams in illustration, which that gentleman has waiting for the inspection of any miner who feels disposed to call at his office for that purpose. The paper in question has already appeared in the Star, and is published in this weeks Miner   also ; so that those interested (and where is the miner that is not ?) may compare Mr Cowan's plans with those submitted by Mr Bray and others. Both Mr Bray and Mr Cowan are practical men, though from opposite parts of the United Kingdom; and it may be from both many valuable suggestions may be ob- tained, while the scheme of neither may be deemed acceptible in its entirety. The sections numbered 4 and 6 refer to a matter of the greatest importance ; and which,...

INCOME OF MASSACHUSETTS RAILROADS. (From the Boston Daily Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 1 November 1856

INCOME OF MASSACHUSETTS RAILROADS. (From th* Botton Baily Advertiser.) j We ottered some remarks a few weeks ago, explanatory of the causes which had produced the falling off of the divi dends on the Massachusetts railroads. Oar main purpose in this explanation was to show that the diminution of dividends, in most cases, and particu larly on the principal roads, did not arise from any diminution of the busi ness done, or of the gross receipts of income ; and that, carefully considered, it ought not to shake the confidence of tba proprietors of the railroad stocks, in tlie stability and 'the permanent value of the property, although it may justly incite them to greater caution in its management. It was our intention at the time of the publication of those remarks, to pursue the subject further, and to confirm the opinions then ad vanced, by a comparison of the present condition of the railroads of the Com monwealth, including those which com pose the lines terminating in this city, s...

MINING ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Star — 1 November 1856

HISING ON PRIVATE PROPERTY. On land, alienated by sue trom toe tro?ern¿ ment, thc right to mine ceases, except hy_ con* sent of the owner. One singularity in flu« ease is that the owner himself, though hB obtain a Miner's Bight, cannot mine .for gold upon his own land, unless he is prepared to admit' all comers upon equal terms. So far^ considering that the gold is ;stiU the property of :tiie fío-* vernment, as the trustees of the people, and tho land is the property of him who bought it j this is, at first sight, an equitable^ regulation! But, although équitable, ,it fe not final; and is equitable only in a - limited and special sense.
