WHEAL GAWLER MINES ASSOCIATION. PROVISIONAL COMMITTEE: W. C. Crane, Esquire E. L. Montefiore, Esquire H. C. Stakemann Esquire solicitors : Messrs Bartley and Bakewell. bankers: The Bank of South Australia. secretary, ad interim : Mr W. A. Hughes. THE proprietors of section No. 909 (better known as the Wheal Gawler Silver-Lead Mines), with a view to a more vigorous prosecution of the operations, have determined to offer to the public a portion of their interest in the above property, at a moderate advance upon the considerable outlay incurred in the purchase of the ground, and the extensive workings for opening the Mines They, therefore, propose the formation of a Joint Stock Company under the above designation, to consist of 1280 shares, at £10 each. Of this number, one-fourth (or 320 shares) is unre servedly offered for sale for one month from this date, at the above price. The entire proceeds of the first one hundred shares sold to be reserved as working capital. The Company to be considered as formed so soon as the amount of one hundred shares is deposited with the Bankers. The purchasers will then be called together for the election of Directors and Trustees, and to take into consideration the draft of a proposed Deed of Settlement, which is now in course of preparation. With reference to the present condition and pro spects of the Mines, the proprietors invite attention to the following report from J. C. Dixon, Esq. Adelaide, 25th May, 1818. My dear Sir— In compliance with your letter of the 3d instant, requesting my opinion in detail respecting the Wheal Gawler property, the present state and i'nturc prospects of the mines, their geological formation, &c, I have uow the pleasure of presenting the annexed report ; And remain, my dear Sir, Yours truly, H. C. Stakeinann, Esq., Adelaide. J. C. Dixon. REPORT. Locality, &c ,) The Wheal Gawler Mines arc situated about of the Estate, J four miles from Adelaide, at the foot of the Mount Lofty range. There is a supply of good spring water at all seasons of the year; and the general shape of the ground is extremely well adapted for mining operations. Geological ) The Hills, which are the subject of this Chabacteristics' / Report, belong to the earliest Slate rock fonnation ; being the second series of aqueous or stratified deposits, and occurring in geological order next above the ' Gneiss'; and between that and the Old red Sandstone or ' Silurian' system ; but there are now only a few scattered traces left to indicate that any more recent series of rocks ever rested upon the slate and grauwacke of this locality ; the Old red Sandstone, with its concomitant beds of limestone and shale, having been washed away in all probability, du ring one of those temporary submersions uuder a boisterous ocean, to which every part of the earth has at various eras been subjected. The Old Slate rock, however, has not been suffered to remain in its original position, but has been con torted by the agency of subterranean heat, and lias been rent and broken by the expansion of the primaeval rocks be neath ; in many places, large irregular fractures thus formed have been filled up by the extrusion of melted crys talline matter projected from the mass of quartz and granite which constitutes the deeper crust of the earth : in otlier places long rents or well-defined fissures, produced by the same cause, have been filled with metalliferous minerals (separated from other matter, perhaps, by some chemical action which could proceed only under the combined cir cumstances of heat and enormous pressure), and thus we see the metallic ' lodes ;' the meials chiefly exhibited in the Wheal Gawler Mines being lead and silver in various combi nations. Present state ) The numerous lodes which run through the of the Works.) Wheal Gawler estate, have (generally speaking) the same magnetic direction, their course being nearly eas tby north, and west by south ; and, in order to inter sect some of them, two adits have been driven from the northern gully, and other works have been carried on, which I will now -separately describe:— A shaft (called the 'Fahlerz Shaft') having been sunk upon a very promising lode, a quantity of extremely rich silver-lead ore of the steel-grained and foliated varieties, was discovered at the depth of five fathoms, and the lode continued to yield this quality of metal for three fathoms deeper, when it was resolved to continue an old adit, with a view to try this particular lode at a greater depth, and the result was that three other lodes ( which had not been discovered on the surface) were cut in the progress of driving ; and when the ad it penetrated the ' Fahlerz Lode,' it was found at that depth (sixteen fathoms) to contain metal of the same rich quality as had been raised from the shaft at five fathoms depth. Another adit was, meanwhile, being driven from the northern gully, about 100 fathoms east ward of the old adit, for the purpose of proving the ' Fahl erz Lode' at a still greater depth. This adit has now been driven thirty-two fathoms, and must be continued about eight een fathoms onward, in orderto reach the lode it was intended to intersect. The metallic value of the iodes, and their longitudinal extension westward, having acquired further confirmation from discoveries made in a shaft called ' Dickins's shaft,' it was resolved to sink a main shaft in the most eligible position, not only to arrive at a deeper section of the ' Fahlerz Lode,' but also to obtain access to other lodes which were supposed, to exist on the southern side of the property. A shaft was accordingly sunk near the southern gully, and at twelve and-a-half fathoms depth cross cuts were driven north and south. The northern crosscut now extends to within about ten fathoms of tbe lode it was intended to reach; and the southern crosscut has bee? driven thirty-five fathoms, intersecting three new lodes ; the last one having been further opened for examination by a drift fourteen fathoms long, at the end of which a -vinze has been sunk ten fathoms deep ; and it exhibits throughout its course rich stones of ore containing alarge proportion ofsilver. With reference to the mode in which the mining operations have hitherto been conducted, I do not hesitate to declare that your superintendent, Captain Henkel, has displayed an excellent degree of judgment and skill in all the underground works which have been entrusted to his direction. Future \ Being requested to advise relative to the future Operations.) mining operations, I would recommend that the main shaft be speedily sunk about thirty fathoms deeper, and that a crosscut be driven from it (at that depth) to the southern boundary of the property ; by such operations you would Intersect at least four lodes, which would, in all pro bability, afford a rich return of metal, and enable you then to carry on other works of great importance to facilitate the development of the more northern lodes. General ) It would be impossible for a man conversant with Opinion. ) geological analogy to examine the Wheal Gawler Mines, without being convinced that the estate contains a great many metallic deposits of the richest and most profit able kind ; the general diffusion of orange gossan, highly tinged with cure-mate of lead; the regular magnetic direction of the lodes ; their well-defined walls, and dip or inclination downwards ; their ascertained longitudinal extension ; the extremely rich character of the silver-lead ores which some of them bear, and the very promising appearance of the rest, — would all tend to the conviction that at a greater depth, many of the lodes would be filled with, massive ore, and would improve in size and value as they go deeper under ground until they touch the granite. I have not arrived at these conclusions hastily, but after many careful examinations of the ground, and after much patient consideration of the subject ; and I now deliberately affirm, that if, under continued good management, the Wheal Gawler Mines do not eventually become exceedingly pro ductive, geological analogy must then be held as altogether worthless. Adelaide, 25th May, 1848. J. C. Dixon. Applications for shares to be made at the office of the undersigned, Rundle-street, where also may be seen a plan of the present workings, and specimens of the silver-lead ores from the various lodes, with reports thereon.

THOMAS CAIN, Sen., & Co. feel it a duty they owe, not only to themselves, but to those colo nists who are kindly disposed to give due encouragement to domestic manufactures, to acquaint such publicspi rited individuals, and the South Australian community generally, that the trade has not condescended to notice the infant establishment in Currie-street ; and it there fore behoves the proprietors to notify that cloths of the genuine Adelaide fabric can at present be obtained only at the manufactory. Some very inferior blankets and tweeds, falsely represented as of T. Cain, Sen., & Co.'s manufacture, having already been sold as such, even at the distance of 50 miles from Adelaide, they cannot longer forego the assurance that nothing equal to the blankets, tweeds, and flannels which T. C. Sen. & Co. are now preparing for winter use can be produced by the im porters or dealers. At the Currie-street manufactory none but the best colonial material is used; conse quently, the felting process is abrogated, ' rags' have become matter of English history, and a warm, durable, but yet light and elastic species of colonial manufacture is presented to South Australians at moderate piices, and undeniably worth the money.

MORISON'S PILLS, THE VEGETABLE UNIVER   SAL MEDICINE. — In corroboration of the sound ness of the Hygeian or Morisonian System of Medicine, a opposed to the Organic Theory pursued by Doctors, th following proofs are offered to the world : — 1 . All animal bodies consist of fluids and solids. 2. While in a state of embryo all animals consist entirely to fluids. 3. It is from and by tbe fluids that tbe solids are formed. 4. The fluldi contained in tbe human body are four times the weigh of the solids. 5. The chief of the fluids is the blood, from which all the others are derived. 6. Tbe blood not only repairs every part of the human machine, bnt also carries with it all tbe rubbish, or decayed parts, to be de posited in the intestines, previous to being expelled along with the excrement. 7. The -blood is the life— the primum mobile— the first agent from which all others derive their origin. 8. Health depends upou the pnrity of the blood. 9. The purity of the blood depends upon its having free outlets for Us decayed particles. 10. Disease is induced by choking up these outlets in the bowels, by reason of an accumulation of glary mucus on the inner surface of the intestines, Ac. 11. This accumulation is occasioned by anything that weakens tbe circulation or hurts digestion, but chiefly by poisonous drugs and bad treatment of the faculty. 12. The impurities thus detained in the blood occasion every spe cies of disease, accoiding to the quality of the humour or the parti cular locality in which it is lodged. 18. All diseases proceed from one source, therefore they must all be cured by one medicine. 14. This medicine must be a vegetable purgative, innoxious in itself, yet sufficiently powerful to pervade the whole system, clear away the above-mentioned mucus, and putify the blood. 15. The discovery of a vegetable compound, capable of being digested, and mixing with the blood, so as to impart to it that energy requisite for ridding the body of all superfluous humors was a desi deratum. 16. This discovery has been made by James Morison the Hygeist, in the composition of the Vegetable Universal Medicine, commonly known as Morison's Pills, of the British College of Health, Hamilton place, New Road, London. l^*No Chemist or Druggist is authorised to sell Mori Bon's Medicines ; and owing to the numerous counterfeits which are sold in various parts of the world, tbe public are requested to see th»t the words 'Morison's Universil Medicines' are engraved in the Government Stamp, in white letters upon a red ground, without which none can be genu ine.
