The wealth of this district is found principally in those black hives of industry, tho villages of Borehole, : the two Lambtons, Wallsend, and Waratah, each place teeming with industrious, intelligent men and ; women, and why they should be cooped up as they . are, for the want of decent roads.

Mr. Read occupied the chair. The minutes of the last meeting having been read and confirmed, the annual report was read. It was as follows : — ' Your committee do not intend to submit a long report of the proceedings of the association during the past year. The business transacted has been of so desultory a character that enumeration of it within moderate limits -would be impossible. Suffice it to say, that several admirable essays, numerous debates and discussions, both of local and general interest, have been given and held. In addition to these, there have been several entertainments of a' literary and musical character. 'Inthe month of June a grand concert was given in tho Victoria Theatre, under the management of a special committee, and it prov ed an unqualified success. It is in con...

MARK FELTON, HIS ADVENTURES, PERILS, AKD ESCAPES Mark read this letter through, from beginning to ' end, without in a great measure comprehending its ' purport. Recover his property— what did this mean ! Again, no letters had reached them. What then had become of that which he had written to Maud ? And why did not Mr. Bcnton or Mr. lUtii, knowing of his safety, as they did, communicate the intelligence to Maud and his uncJe f Aiid then this plotting— what could that mean ? It fairly bothered the lad— he could make nothing of it. He opened the other letter. It was a strange scrawl, and Mark smiled, as in the quaint characters which covered the paper, he discovered the Yankee's gaunt face and strange manner as plainly as though Mr. Kath were standing before him. The letter was as follows : — ' London, 10 June, 1842. ^ 'My dear Mark, — 'I guess I ain't had nothing to please uiesomuch since I doubled the darned Ingins on the lied Kiver seven years ago, as the news of your having been sa...

EXTRACTING GOLD BY ZINC. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 8 February 1870

EXTRACTING GOLD BY ZINC. The San Francisco Bulletin gives the following par ticulars of a plan patented by Mr. D'Hcureuse, of this city, for extracting gold by zinc : — When we fairly ex amine the retentive faculty of quicksilver for gold we find it very limited indeed ; that the affinity only acts on the perfectly pure surface of both-^a minority ol cases, in reality ; and that a reduction in temperature so greatly reduces the affinity that it hardly exists below a temperature of 45 dee Fair. The result is that, on an average, only one half, or thereabouts, of the gold is extracted by quicksilver from the ore ; the rest is either carried as float gold by tho water required for the bat teries, or remains in the tailings. This fact, known to every intelligent operator, should alone be sufficent to point out the imperative necessity of devising other ex tracting agents for the majority of ore, containing more than twenty -five dollars per ton, but not rich enough to leave a profit by ...
