FROM THE MINING JOURNAL, Feb. 4th. BOLWEN.âA discovery of some importance is ported at this mine, worked by the Clara United Company. In driving an adit by the side of one lode to come under and unwater an old shaft, a course of ore was cut into on Jan. 25, which was telegraphed from Aberystwith to London in these words :â"One of the Clara men has just called to say they have cut into good ore at Dolwen, which produces, according to his expressions, lumps of lead as large as a man can lift." This mine is working on the celebrated Frongoch lode of Lisburne Mines, and a discovery of this character at such a point may lead to most im- portant results. At the Bronfloyd United Mines quarterly meeting, on Monday, (Mr. T. Miers in the chair), the accounts showedâBalance Sept. 30, 799Z. 4s. 9d. ore sales (117 tons), 1724Z. 14s. 3d.=2523/. 19s.âBy working cost, three months, 10581. 19s..5d.: leaving cash bal- ance of 1464/. 19s. 7., from which a dividend was declared of 7501. (15s. per share, the shares having been consolidated into one thousand, and the remain- ing balance of 714Z. 19s. 7. carried to next account. A highly satisfactory report was read from the agent (Capt. Thomas Kemp), which stated "that the quan- tity of ground broken during the quarter in the D2 âfrom driving, rising, and stoplllg-was 40 cubic fathoms, which returned 110 tons or lead ore, equal to 2i tons per cubic fathom." "IF you go on that way, sir," said a prisoner in the dock to his counsel, who was defending him with force and fury. and abusing judge and jury in good set terms-" if you go that way, they will hang me I know they will. Never mind, my boy," replied the counsal, an Irish gentleman, carried away by his own eloquenceâ" never mind, my boy; let them hang,you. and I'll make them repent it."
