Aa to the w ebs tho Spider spun, Her combs as Kkillfully were done.

The whole range of the Andes is j known to be tilled with preeiov* metals i of incalculable wealth. All along the count. f<r I dOO miles, are urioorul indi cation?. visible to the naked eye. and in some places the tourists sail many days | 1 past bluff* deeply stained with the de I i*o*ilo ot copper. At every port miner- i ul .* pceimeus from the interior arc ex- i hibited for sale, and to induce cxplora- I lions ; and small smelling wmka dot i the shore* from Peru to far south of j V ulpnmibo. The traditions cf the In- | | diaii* whom (he Spun lards found h re I nearly 400 years ago were full of ac • counts id* gold and silver mines, and ! i Iroiu (hut time to tho prescut day now I discoveries have followed each other I with almost fabulous rapidity. It would i j be impossible to give all the traditions I that atill respecting mines that , have once hern worked by Indians on a j small scale nnd are now unknown.— !; 'I he authenticated accounts of acciden tal discoveries of silver by peons, who i either parted with their new acquisitions lor a trifle or suddenly amassed ini

i inenac fortunes, would fill volume*. In 1 the coal mines of the south of Chile i saw men working with the pick who once owned portions of the coal district, and many of the cupper and silver mines now in operation have laborers j employed in them who knew of the ex-1 istcuce of the mines long be lure they 1 were opened. A few lucky t iscovcrcrs j turned their good tortuous to account. | and from paupers became Wealthy. I know ol one instance iu particular, where the owner of a mine was former ly a half starved peon, glad to get ten cents u day, and who has an annual in come of $200,000. Gold and silver, in more or less abundance, are found from the Isthmus of Panama to Iho Strait* of Magellan. The sil \cr mines of Peru I have long been well known, and the discovery of silver in Chile dates back to a very early period. Gold is found iu many parts of the country, and has been worked some, but not with satis factory results. It is believed that the r extreme Southern districts of Chile. now occupied by Indians, have very | rich gold mine*, us considerable quanti ties ol (hat-metal reach the roust thro* tho hands of traders with iho various tribes. Near Valparaiso several at tempts have been made to get out gold. 1 and one or two parties dkltolerably well for time, but the project was finally abandoned. lunnoo*o mines nf silver and copper arc found in Bolivia and 1 the north of Chile; and farther South are rich und extensive coal fields.— , Mine* of cobalt, rine, lead, etc., have also been discovered, and arc being worked successfully. Iu addition to those mineral riches, a portion of the coa*t yields many tons of saltpetre an nually.

In the fall of 1860, a settlement in , one of the mountain counties of Cali fornia was alarmed and annoyed by the proximity and predatory excursion* of a gristly bear Two hunter* dote, min- t ed to rid the neighborhood of this dan gerous peat. Finding one day on the i side of a mountain a heifer that had just < died, they constructed over it a rude scaffolding, carelessly erected, with the ■ customary recklessness of those mouo- i uineers, and. worse still, just over, in stead of a short distant from, the bait,! a* it should have been. With blankets to guard against the cold nights; enough rooked provisions to lust two or three da s. nnd their guns and ammunition, they took up their po sition on the structure AtjLirk the full moon arose with a •oft, <4rtir brilliancy of light peculiar to those regions. No frog, no bird, no an imal cry Into.rapts the aufal stiilnes* of those rugged solitudes after nigh fall. A feeling of uneasiness began to creep into Hiram Johnaon’sinind. which degenerated into something like timidi ty, as upon walking across the floor of the scaffold, he felt it shake beneath him. nud for the first time, ob*ervcd its rickety character. "Gray,” said he, “this thing ain’t safe. Let's prop it up some more.” jjAh I” exclaimed tho other, “Listen!” incy could hear a rustling of the > brush some distance up the mountain, j and were soon enable to perceive a huge j grizzly bear making his way down to ! their hut. W hen ho had arrived within about twenty feet he observed (be hunters, and raising on his hind feet, advanced a* it determined upon an attack, to the di* may of Johnson, who felt satisfied that a slight pressure of the beast’s enor morn* body wnld overthrow their frail structure, and place them ul (lie mercy j of this savage enemy. The bear, however, after a few step*. : abandoned this threatening movement, and dropping on all fours, walked un dcr the scaffold, and commenced his re post, rubbing against one of tho posts in passing, and thereby rocking the whole concern Johnson's uneasiness had now become ; fear, nml hi* whole desire was to keep perfectly atill. in the hope thus the boar would gorge itself on the dead animal, and then go away aud leave thorn unin terrupted. This fear deepened into terror, ns he saw the big whiskers, shaggy hair and burly form of Gray, gun ;o band, creeping to the edge of the j platform. -Gray,” he whi pored, “don't shoot. | This thing ain't built right. It ought to have been a little distance off. so that | we could sho-1 without leaning-over 1 the edge. Now yon can't get no fair | shut, aud if you don’t kill it, it’ll kill 1 us.” Gray s answer was only an impatient i motion with his left hand, meant for a j Mynal to keep quid, nnd. crawling with i iris body far over the edge, so he could ) well see under, he began to bring bis gun forward, and turn the inuxxk un- j dcr the scaffold preparatory to firing on ! the bear, which was 100 much engaged * in eating to notice what was going o, , above. Bui that shot was never fired. 1 for the added weight of the guu in its i position, nnd that of its owner, was all . ; that was needed to cause the scaffold to j I commence slowly settling toward i the i ' side over which Gray was leaning. j j ‘Back, Gray, back ! the scaffold's | i falling!” ultnost shrieked Johnson, with j pallid face, striving to pull Iris compan ion towards tho centre. But it was too late. Tho thing sud denly fell, und the wreck, men and grix> i Hy, wore mixed in confusion. Johnson, conceiving he hud no time I to waste in rising to Iris feet, imn edi- I ately proceeded to flounce out of the i wreck, and roll down hill with a ccleri- . ty no hoop snake could surpass. Gray, now nearly as much terrified as Johnson, passed him with two leaps of amazing stride, and had nearly reach ed the bottom ol the bill, when it occur red to him to have a hasty survey over his shoulder. Johnson was still rolling but no bear was to be seen. Astonish ed at this, the fugitive slopped nnd fa ced the situation, when, high up the mountain, ho discovered the monster, evidently as much terrified as them selves, hastily entering the bush fVoro which he had just emerged. Gray then enlightened Johnson on the slate of affairs, and uudccbively proponed otlttig up after the guns aud blankets, hut the last named gentleman very decisively said he would prefer go ing home, and they went, without any unnecessary waste of time. Their information in regard to aeaf ford architecture in connection with firlxsly bear hunting, had rectvcd the ight of some valuable experience. Efficacy or O.nionu.—A writer say* : “Wi arc troubled oftjn with severe coughs, tho result of colds of standing which may turn to consump tion or premature death. Hard coughs cause sleepless nights by constant irri tat ion in the throat, and a strong effort to throw off offensive matter from the lunge. The remedy I propose has been tried by nic. and recommended by me with good result; which is simply to lake into tho stomach hofvro retiring for tho night a piece of raw ouion, after chewing. This esculent in <m uneook ed state is vofy betting, and collects tho waters from the lungs end throat, causing immediate relief to the patient Since 1821 Mexico has bceo govern ed by 23 perors, 1 vice prcajßnt and 1 general isaimo. I A Racy letter from u Would- | e.

So far, so i good. But. sir. you have, at the same ■ time, provided iu the law that they shall ) not hold office ! Now, what dues such ; legislation menu ? lum a colored man. | | and have wool un uty head, but you aud I your white truth can’t pull that wool over my eyes. The darkies in Tennes see generally wilt understand what you are after, and will put their LruaJ Jtct down on you. Th is act reminds me of tho case where a while man and an Indian went hunt mg They killed a turkey sod a bux tard. and when they came to divide, the white man. to satisfy the Indian that he would do the fair thing, made this pro position : “I’ll take the turkey, und you may take the buzzard, nr you may lake take the buzzard and I’ll take the turkey.” The Indian hung his head for awhile, then looking up, said to his • sharp companion: “Every time turkey I t white man. nud buzzard far Indian.” 0, yes. you want us to go r otiny with you, but every time office for white man and vote lor oigger.
