i 'i'lit Vn.v.ut (Iiii.d Mixks, A, 6an Frnn
eiseo correspondent of the New, Orleans
Picayune says :
I Fra.or river is larger than the Sacra
mento, and the mines commence at a hun
dred miles from its mouth; whereas the
'Sacramento, oPl) miles from the sea, ha:
ho gold on its immediate banks. As tin:
i valley of the Fra.or river is as largo a.,
; that of Iho .Sacramento, tho inference i,
thai the numerous quartz or dry diggings,
which supplied the gold on the bars in
the forme- stream, must be cither nearer
the centre of the valley, or immensely
more rich than those of the great artery of
I The miners now on Frazer's river uri
' making from ;hreo to six dollars a day on
an average, working with roekars ; and
this is as much as to say, th.it with sluict .
and when tho water is low so that the
richest part of the bars can bo reaohod.thr
' wages of experienced miners will not be
less than thirty or forty dollars. As it is
now, w orking with instruments which tire
discarded almost entirely by Californi..
miners, the men on rra.er river soini
times make fifty dollars a day ; and some
have even made as much as one hundred
and ti. ty and two hundred.
The Indians are numerous in Frazer
valley, and they tiro a warlike race, and
well provided with muskets and skillful
in their use; but up to the present time
they have been friendly, though they steal
every thing they can lay their hands on.
The mines, as I said, commence at the
bus of Frazer river, mid extend up aboii:
one hundred and fifty mile to tho Bi;
Falls, ;dong which wbolo extent there are
-mail parties of white miners, most o.
whom are.. Americans. There are ids.
