Gold Ptacera of Honduras?Valuable (?? formation We have been furore J with the folio nag interesting letter from a gentleman who has spent **v*ral yearn in exploring the mineral and agricultural miourcei of Cen tral An*ri:a. The information which it contain* will prove valuable to that large clau of our people whs are turning their attention to those rich and beautiful, but hitherto unexplored and neglected, southern cointrlei. Of all the Crn'ral American .States, Honduras has the greatest variety of resources ltn nortnern ciast it stocked with mahogany, roiewood, logwood, India-rub ber, and copal trees, and is rish in str<-ap?rilla, vaoilla and other valuable articles of com mere*. It is, more, over, capable of an lntinite production of cott >o, rice, sugar, cacao, and the remaining great trap cal staples. The high and salubr'04* plaint anl Btvauuih* of the interior afford pasture" for largo herds of cattle, and produce potatoes, wheat, apples, pear. ties, and all the various fruits and graina of oar o*a :oaatry Htre, to>, are sany rich mines of gold, b?tfi iu ih* form of mines and washings. But the silver mines are most numerous, and perhaps the most valuable although it is probable that the gold washing* of Che department of Olancho are not surpassed by thofce of California. It is to this de partment that the letter of our corrxsp >u dent chiefly relates. Omoa, Hoxhuhas, FVb 22, 1855. Sir? I send you a few general remark* on the mineral region of the department ot Olancho Toe principal me tals at present known to exist in this State are: gold of several qualities, silver, both in the virgin and mixed states, copper, iron, and lead in large quantities; quick silver? an yet but one small mine ; tin, arsenic and man ganese. The three departments of Tegucigalpa, Olancho. ?Choluteca, and perhaps Comayagua, contain the largest portion of the nobler metals. The most remarkable mining localities are as follows: in Tegucigalpa, the mines of Tuxcuran, San Antonio, Santa Lucie, Cedros, Mora inula, Ki Plomo, Poterillos, and Agalteca; in Coma yagua, Opoteca, Minus de Oro, Cuyal, and Car id ad; in Choluteca, San Martin and Corpus; in Gracla>, Co'oal and St. Andreas; in Olancho, near Danli, and Juticalpa, tne rivers Guyambre, Jalan, and Guyape. The Coloal, be longing at present te Sr. Castellanos, is exceedingly rich, yet scarcely superior to the Roaalia in l'abanco and the San Andreas, both owned by tne same gentleman. Another advantage common to tne mines iu this State, is the facility with which the ore cau be worked? the immense force required in the mines of California being here superfluous. Among the rivers or Olancho which we (t. e. mvself and Dr. li ) visited and prospected, the Uayape and the Jalan are decidedly the richest in auriferous sands. These two rivers unite a little below Juticalpa, the capi tal of Olancho. and flow into the sea ou tue northeast coast, under the name of El Patuco. in lat. 15 deg. 48 mia. oO mc. : long. 84 deg. 18 min. W. The bar of the Patuco has from flve to seven feet water in summer, ana from nine to twelve during the winter, (1. e. rainy season.) The water in the river, to the junction with the Vampu, averages live feet. Near this point are some rapids, (chijlon s.) Ttiese pasted, the depth continues about four an<1 a half feet to the month of the Jalan, about a league from Juticalpa. From thencc to the point of Aleman, the river has the name of Guayape, with scarcely two and a half feet at the deepest, with many bars and saudbanks. perfectly dry taring the dry season, which was the period of our Visit. At the Aleman properly begins the auriferous sand and washings, and continue up the river, the bancs on either side containing much line gold. The doctor and myself procured some from a small hole, dug with a machete, at half a mile from the river, at Aleman. Leaving Juticalpa in a N E. direction, and crossing the same department near Jocon, over a district of about twenty leagues by ten, there is not the most iniignlfl cant streamlet bnt that contains gold either in its ian1s or on its banks For the most part these rivulets follow the courses of the mountains, and throw themselves into the Guayape and Jalan. The iemalnier, including the Sisaca and Mangulile, (the gold of the latter being of j larger size, and taken generally to Truxlllo,) fall into '1 the " Rio Mirajoco," which, taking the name Of Ta^uale, after fertilizing the beautiful valley of Olanchito, reaches the " Roneano," and enters the ocean sixteen miles east of Truxillo, in lat. 15 deg. 57 min. N , and Ion. 85 deg. 43 min. W. In these larger rivers, the gold is found in deposits near the bends and rapids. The finest gold is from the Guayape, Ja lan and Mangulile, in Olancho, and from the Sulaco. Cal mito, and Pacaya of Yoro, near Juticalpa, there are some rich lead aad copper mines but little used . A little silver is also found in combination with the lead. Iron is alao found at a short distance . At Aleman, the wo men only wash the sand on Sunday msroing, and with their miserable "batteas." procure in a few nours suf ficient metsl to aupply their wants for the ensuing week. We did bettor, as you have no doubt heard from the doctor. Among the best mines we visited, near Juticalpa, are the "Retire," three leagues dLstaat. The Uuijana and San Filipe are the Ketiro; the or* is in quart*, bat very easily worked. All these mines are owned by natives, and pay well. The metal is sold on the spot at an average o $11 10 to $12 per ounce. At Guijana it is found, In a sof state, and San Felipe in red earth. At some flve league from Dacli, the Jalan produces well, and thor* were a the time of our visit over an bandred men and women a work with batteas, never going more than a few feet be low the surface. In my next I will *end you a further account, aa our skipper is in a "desperate hurry." Tim* and tide wait for no one.

But for the operations in Brie and Reai'.ng we should fc are very dull times at the stock board. These are the two most active stocks of the day, and the latter has be?n within the last four months purchased largely for investment. There is nothing doing in other ra'Iroad stocks, but prices are firmly sustained. Railroad bonds are in the market to some extent, and freely offered at our quotations, but the demand is limited. The orders from Europe oootinue small, and we do not look for much activity until prices on both sides of the Atlantic become equalised. The ex in ting condition of financial affairs in England and on ths Continent forbids further investment! in our eecuriiie* for the present, to any ex tent, and we must take care of thsm oar selves. We can do so without much difficul ty, so long as money continues abundant; but we must avoid as much a* possible any increase in our supplies, by keeping down the issue of new bond* for railroads or any other purposes. The stock market gene rally Is not in a very satisfactory encouraging condition. The most prominent ctocks ars in hands where they will remain aa Investments, or for an advance in market value. The brokers have very little control of the mar ket, and cannot influensa prices a fraction, aven tempo rarily, except by a desperate move, which would cost them more in the end than it was worth. Outsiders quietly picked up large lots of stocks, at low prices, some months since, and having the means to carry, have withdrawn them from tbt market. The broker* were sailers at low prices, and the ris? has taken place with out benefitting them materially. They are, therefore, anxious to depress prices again, for two important par poses? first, to secure differences on the decline, and than to com* in as purchasers and inflate them again. The probability is that they will be disappointed in both in stances. The broker's occupation Is, therefore , gone for the time. They raisT be content with small comm ssions for the present. Unfortunately for the brokers, too many of the stocks daily operated in at the board are regular dividend paying securities. If the market price happen* to be depressed, the productiveness is not af fected, and they can be held for Investment. This is very different to what it was a few years since, and speculation is, therefore, now carried on more securely. The sudden fluctuations of past years have almost entirely disappeared, and nothing short of a protracted financial revulsion, affecting all our grsat local interest*, can seriously depreciate the market v.ilue of stocks. The bulls and the beam, the longs and the abort*, have had their day. The cliques of speculators operating for a rise or fall, have now comparatively no influence. Combinations formed for cornering certain fancies, are no longer heard of, and nothing but the as tual intrinsic value of a stock ean give it an upward im petus in the market. The recent advance in Reading is not the result, as many imagine, of speculation. Had not the financial affairs of the company so rapidly improved, and its monthly earnings shown such an enormous in crease on last year's business, all the combinations and all the speculation of half a dozen active markets could not have put the stock up to its present level and kept it there so steadily. The ad vanes in Erie has been brought about by the superiority of its present manage ment, compared with that of previous years, its diffi culties and embarrassments depressed the stock a few month* since to thirty per cent. It has advanced to fifty, under the operation of economy and sound judg ment in its management. Harlem, Hudson River, Cumberland, Nicaragua, Canton Company, and one or two other stocks, have not advanced much un der all the favorable changes in the money mar ket. The abundance of capital ha* not benefitted them much, and * peculation appears to be powerless in its effect upon their market value. The cause is clear enough. The stocks remain just about the same in ac tual value. No real improvement ha* taken place in any of them. They are no better than they were twelve month* since, and we do not know that they are any wcrse. The market value has, therefore, not varied materially. We see in theee stocks how powerless the brokers are? how utterly impossible it is, under the ex sting state of the public mind, to inflate prices for any stock, unlets there i* an actual bona fide basi* for such an inflation; and it is only those securities which have largely increased their productiveness that oommand high prices. Reading is still considerably below its real value as a permanent investment, while Erie is selling for about all it is worth, in view of contingencies. If there was no probability of an interruption in its present large receipts, from competition or from disagreements, a further ad vaace might be j uatified : but the danger of some snch difficulty is so great that careful, cautious capi talist* will not trust the stock as a permanent invest ment. After the adjournment of the board, the following sales of bonds and stock* were made at auction by Simeon Draper:? $1, coo Memphis City 6's, 1880, interest added ... 69 2,0fo Pandusky City Ohio 7's, 1805, do 81 2,000 Central Ohio RR. 7's, 1861, do 78 1,000 N.

Mr. Thomas Lord, late Vice President, has been elected President of the Nicaragua Transit Company. Mr. Charles Morgaa still remains in the direction. The stockholders of the New Haven Railroad Company elect directors to take the places of the pretest irregular board, on Thursday, the 10th inst. The election taken place at New Haven. The repudiating and non-repu diating parties are hard at work hunting up proxies, and the result, we believe, is somewhat doubtful. The pub lie mind is pretty well posted regarding the vital ques tion at Issue at this election, and considerable curiosity exists to see if there is real honesty enough left among the Connecticut stockholders to do justice to those who have a different class of stock. The result depends sntirely upon the stockholders residing in Connecticut. Holders of what is called the " spurious stock" do not appear to take mnch Interest in the elec tion. They are in the hands of the oeurts, and feel con fident justice will be done in the premises. They are satisfied to wait tb? decision of the higheet tribunal in the State. From decisions already made In our courts, t is easy to foresee the resnlt. It is pretty certain that the earnings of the road will do no one any good, ex oept those who are directly engaged is its management, until litigation ceases, and by that time the road will be a poor, worn out, dilapidated coaoern, not worth one half of what its bonds and stock represent. The situ ation as director, conductor, or any kind of an office in the New Haven Railroad Company, must be a fat office so long as the concern Is la the hands of the courts and lawyers. The earnings never get out of first hands, and, as they are pretty large, somebody gets good pickings.
