Ter., May 10.—In looking over your paper this evening, I noticed a piece beaded “Arriving In tho Block Hills," and signed George L. Cutler, I hare been In (bo Hills since last February, and think I have seen as much of tho mines an ho has, who has been there so short a time. Hacamo from Chicago,— I camo from Chi cago alio; ho but recently, —I left there twelve years ago for Colorado, where I have been ever since, and been engaged in all kinds of mining, and seen It dune on a grander scale than perhaps ho over dreamed of. I think, from his letter In your paper. Hint ho Is about as much mistaken as any man I ever heard of. In the first place, 1 do not believe he overwent to Custer by stage; for, If ho did, ho must know (hat they do not travel by night, nor dotbeymako it in live days. There are no stage stations on tbo road between hero and Cnstcr, alter you leave Fort Laramie. The Company have commenced building several, hut have none finished, or had none on the the Hutu of April, tho time I arrived in Cheyenne from Custer. I left Custer on the 20th of April. There Is not n dug-out on the road, and bnt few ranches, but the few that arettioroare kept by men who arc gentlemanly and accommodating, and willing to sell to any one whatever they had for money. There is not a mud-house In Custer, Hill, or Castle City. The people in the Hills arc from all parts of the world, and arc good, bad, and Indifferent. 1 hare been to nearly all the mining camps on French. Spring, Castle, and Rapid Creeks: have prospected the two former and the latter creeks, and failed to find anything but color, and very small color at that. I have seen a little coarso gold that came from Bpnng and Castle Creeks, but not enough (or any one to go crazy over. There Is a little gold all through tho Hills, but I do not be lieve there arc any paying diggings; at least, none have been found yet; and, if there evcrls one, tbo gold will speak for Itself. The Cheycnno paper* speak very frequently of a little now and then that Is received here, though they nearly always name double tbo amount that Is really received. But, allowing that they arc never mistaken, the amounts that they havu reported from time to time us being received, or oven taken out of the Hills, docs not amount to a drop lu the bucket In comparison to what should have Iwen taken out of a mining camp If It was a gold-country. Mr. Cutler says there is no gold In the vicinity of Custer. He Is mistaken. Auy one can find cold all through! the Hills. On the bars, In the dry gulches. In the crooks, and on (ho aides of tbo mountains, culorcau be found. What little gold has been found Is principally from the clay gulches and rlvcr-rock of the creek*. The country ha* been thoroughly prospected In every place whore gold In other mining countries has been found, ex cept tho crock-bottoms, and none found lu paying quantities. The reason the creeks hare not been Scctcd!®, that (be fall of them ail Is so slight t costs more money for a drain-ditch than many care to risk In them until they arc sure, or have more encouragement than they have yet, that there Is gold In paying quantities In them. Rapid Creek (so Frof. Jcnncy soys) has a fall of 00 feet to tho mile; Castle Creek, 00 feet: Spring Creek, almnt 40; and I thing French Creek has Teas than SO feet to the mile. The two latter have but very little water In them at any time, and then only when Urains or thu snow is melting. I think that for at least six months of the year there Is no run ning water in them, as 1 have Been them dry In several places in the months of February and March. Castle and Rupld have more water, bat cot enough, where they come together and form one stream, to afford water to work onc-fourth tho claims that arc staked out and claimed on them. The cry is now. and has been all winter, that Dcadwood, hand Creek, and Wbltcwood ore tho S laces, and that they arc finding and working rich irgings on these creeks; ami many arc going north every day In hopes they will strike them. Hut us many arc returning every day, and have been all winter and spring; and you have as many good uud bad reports from them as you do from any other part of the Hills. One thing Is sure: they arc not bringing any cold from there worth spoakingof, and this is sufficient proof for me that it Is yet to be found there, as elsewhere in tho Hills, la paying quantities. As to the route Mr. Cutler advises tho Black* Hiller from the Hast to take. I think he Is wrung again. In the first place, it Is impracticable on ac* count of tho bad lands, where there 1s but little water, at long stretches, and that contains so much alkali that man or beast cannot nso it. Besides, ouo has to cross the Indian reservation, where they are the roost hostile, or rather where they are to be found in tho greatest numbers, and which is tho most danghrous route, as there are several companies of soldiers on the lino of road between Cheyenne and Custer, and nearly, if not quite, all the travel Is by tills route now. For my part, i would advise people to take neither of these roads, but stay at home or go to some place else, and let those already In the mils thoroughly dem onstrate the gold question In the Hills before any more go there. Wo will all know It as soon as It is found oy Us coming out in quantities. It mast all come first to Cheyenne, and, as soon as It arrives here, tho papers glvo It to the world. Bnt do nut be tho first In believing all they print. 1 think I have adopted a good plan to go by in be- Moving what I hear about gold: it is this: If I know the parties to be honest, 1 divide the amount by two, uud then sometimes there Is a mistake; but, If 1 do not know them, I divide the amount by four. In this way 1 get near the true facts. Yours truly, Cr. B. Atsss. A CHICAGOAN’S LUCK, J*rtmte LtUer. Spring Creek, Black Hills, April I.—l left Obey* enno March X; traveled over a rather pleasant road, occasionally spotted with ranches, 04 miles to Fort Laramie; thence directly north, leaving all mark of the white man, yet plenty of traces of the In dians, to Coster City, 170 miles. Tho road la a dreary, monotonous one, with bat little Umber and less water; and wo were inconstant watch of tho red devils that Inhabit this country; yet, as good lock would have It, we saw none, which was a great wonder, for stock was stolen and camps fired into on both sides of us. Wo made the trip in thirteen days from Cheyenne, which Is good time, with good weather. with the exception of tho last four days, which were very snowy and cold; but I escaped luckily with only my noeo ami cars frozen. Custer Is located on French Creek, near Its head, in a very preUy spot for a town, If it bad anything to support It, winch I very much doubt. The creek must pay for tho town to succeed. In that porUon of the lulls they have nut found gold yet that will pay 81 por day to tho man. Yet the town Is going ahead onlmpalsc; but I think It desperation, with hopes that something may turn up to help them out. 1 staid there three days, ond started on north 15 miles, to lUll City, cm Spring Creek. There I found some 100 bouses nod about fifty men. It was once tho home of six limes that number; but they hod gut disheartened, and gone to sumo reported dig gings hi other parts of the Hills. Thus everybody is wandering from place to place in a fit of desper ation, to find something that will j«»y at least wages; but, aloe I none saeb have an yet been dis covered In this section. . . Leaving Hill City, I followed down the crook about 111 miles, where wo camped, located three ranches, built a log cabin, and sunk many a hole in scorch of that desired metal, gold, but with no success. Reports coming to us every day of Indians making raids on tho whites, steal ing stock, and sometimes killing men, we con cluded that wo were not aafe, neing where wo could not protect ourselves, or oven .make a good tight. So wo moved camp back up the creek U miles, where wo now ore camped lu u dry gulch, 1 mllo from Spring Creek. Two companies ore taking out some little money; and, knowing that, wo have been sinking holes uud prospecting for ten days; but have come to tho conclusion that there Is no money for mo in this section, and lu a few days 1 shall follow the crowd north. There hiivo been gulches discovered from 50 to 100 miles north, that may prove of sumo account. In fact, four-fifths of tho whole population are In the northern country, and report eight gulches that will pay. I hope such Is the case, but have learned not to believe until 1 see. As yet I have not seen a gold mluo In the Hills that will pay jkt day per man, ami the wonderful reports circu lated In tho blatrs have broaght thousands to tho country, without money or grub enough to last them thirty days: and I fear. If something is not discovered soon, that many will sulfur. And, on top of all. Uto Indiana are very troublesome, it not being safe fora man to go half a mile from camp. No one thinks of going after a bucket of water UtlO feet from camp, without his gun on bis shoulder. In short, ft Is hie constant companion sight and day. 1 have seen many Indians, but these are mure bmvo, and lake more chances by far, than any others. The northern country la more exposed, perhaps; but thure are more people there, and they arc better fixed to fight. If they uave to. There area great many men leaving the Hills In disgust, bull shall.nut leave until I hare seen It nil, and done my utmost to make a dollar. tell tho truth, however, 1 have but little coufidoncu in this country as a gold-mlnlng region, but hope for tho best. This country, so far as beauty Is con cerned, is a lovely one. The finest Umber—piuv, oak, and birch—ls In abundance, aud there are good water and gnus. \y. T. It AKOTnsn CHICAGOAN'S liUCK. Frfpofs Letter , Camp CnooK; May a,— I am now In the central part of the black Hilts, at a place called Camp Crook, on HapU} Cresk.

Tbls is not a very pleas* ant situation to be in when people all around you ate coming down to the bottom of their tacks of .flour, ana you have none yogmlf, and when wagons om coming-in fromthe-towns behind os, . and tell ua there is no floor or bacon in UUls l City or Custer City. , There are rtpQltafnan.Oie.ccrthot a* upon Ilcidwood Creek, of gold-dlscorenes, very nen; but, (hen, for every claim there arc (en men: so that, .were our provisions here, it would not be .best for us to move on. To-day Is Wednesday, and licit Sunday there will he a drawing for town lets, A town will bo established here, which will probably In*. In the course of a short time, the most flourishing in the Hills. I suppose I might a" well give you my Imprcs ,*ion of this country. Wo mol on onr journey here many persons returning, ami in one parly there Were at Ica«t 100. They said there was cold here in every place, hut it was In such small quantities, and so scattered, that It would not pay. Wo donhted their story, •and, nothing discouraged, pushed on with much la bor to this point, and In numerous parties pros pected np and down the creek for miles, and found all reports true. The gold we have fonnd if so small that so far wc have found nothing that pays. It will require time, patience, ami labor to devel op the claims wu havewurlcci); and it has needed all these to develop those wc have seen In the hands nf others. We met a newspaper-man on our way here, and his impression wa«, that there were no “poor man’s diggings” here. Taken altogether, the outlook Is not very ptea<)n? at present, but wo hope that s week or so may make a change. I). J. O’C. A 11ETUIIN1X0 TUAIX. Special Ditpalc A to T7.e Tribune.
