The lode at the 300 feet level at the Junction mine has now been revealed for a width of 22 feet without the slightest indication of either wall. The western crosscut from the north drive is being smartly proceeded with, and the full extent of ore body is not known. The character of the ore remains unaltered, con sisting of excellent galena, and the appearance of the mine now presents a wonderful contrast to that of a few weeks ago, when I visited the mine and found the lode had been passed through by the main crosscut showing the lode in that part a little over 3 feet wide. It ha* taken longer to repair the Cornwall smelter than was at first expected, but the repairs are steadily progressing, a ad confidence is expressed that when the furnace again starts it will have a long and uninterrupted run of euccQES.
