A nnmber of tables are set out on the grass, under ft covering of mats, made of plaited reeds mid vine branches. Unluckily, there is nothing to do at these rustic resorts but to drink wine and piny at morra, or some rude game; tho result of bloody noses nud cracked crowns is not unfre quent, for the Italian is given to drink ing to excess, and is very fierce when tipsy.

Reports from the B!aok Hills from various quartern in regard to the value of their gold pin cos, continue to be somewhat contradictory, but the weight ot testimony discourages expectations that tbey will ever yield considerable quantities of precious metals. The gov erouiet geologist reports a general diffu sion of small quantities of gold over u largo area, but be states that he has seen nothing to warrant extensive min ing operations. At one of the Camps many of the soldiers and team-masters endeavored to test the richness of the soil, "but as no ono obtaiucd, evcu by several hours hard labor, more than o few cents worth of gold dust, noue of the command were afterward seen work ing for the precious metal.'
