in no repute lately, in consequence of the rich
stone found in No. 5 Lucky, which was erro-
neously supposed to be the vein from No. 2 ;
but Mr Vickery the mining surveyor, has
by an accurate survey, made yesterday, con-
firmed the accuracy of Mr Creed's opi-
nion, relative to the course of the reed. I
sympathise with Creed, for I fear, even against
my wish, that he will be ousted in this case - a
wrong, no doubt to one of the most inoffensive
men in Alexandra. everyone here knows that
he would have the lion's share in No. 2 Lucky,
had he no dissuaded his mates. nineteen
months ago, from jumping it, there being then
am informed that he intends to prosecute the
Albert Company for a seventh share in their
claim, which should he gain it, will make up
for his other losses.
The Mysterious Company have struck a new
leader to-day which shows splendid gold, im-
proving much in the depth. Crushing in this
claim will soon commence, and a handsome
yield will be the result. The Welcome stone
look promisingly rich. I have no doubt that
at greater depth the stone will improve, as
other reefs in the neighborhood when deeply
worked have done. This line of reef is
taken u p for nearly two miles, but
is only worked about one-half mile, the
Green Flag and M'Kenzie's leases being
at a stand-still. Thus it will be seen how
inimical to the district are leases. Many a
miner would have employment in the un-
worked portion of this line of the leasing sys-
tem did not extend to this quarter, and the de-
velopment of valuable claims, would be the in-
fallible result.
