We have never been among those who have fancied that it wonld be' a simple matter to snuff out the copper syndicate, by which the market has been regulated for some time past. If the syndicate has been shaken its day nevertheless is not yet over. It waa expected that other noanciers would Interpose, and tnis is exactly what has happened.

THE BROKEN HILL NORTH MINE. [By Telegraph. 1 Brcken Hill, March 13. In consequence of rumors being circulated about the town regarding the appearance of the lode at the 300 feet level of the North mine, I have just been to the mine. The lower level was flooded, so that I could not get down to eee the lode there. The manager assures me, however, that the crosscut at that level is now in the lode for a distance of 6 feet without any indication of the wall. When the crosscut was in about 4 feet it cut an intrusion of country, but this has now beeu pasEed through and the crosscut is in good ore. The Eouth drive at the 200 feet level shows the 'lode there to be scarcely more than 12 inches wide. The lode at the widest partjat this level is SO feet wide, so that there iB a wonder ful contrast presented. I intend examining, the SOO-feet level to-morrow morning. Broken Hill, March 14.
