Silver Mines in Pendleton County

(From the Maysville Eagle)

 

    It seems that silver ore in large quantities and of fine quality has been found down in Pendleton county, which is causing great excitement among the good people of that region of country. The following letter in regard to the matter we have just received from one of the most reliable citizens of Bracken county, who has been down in the mining region. His letter is accompanied by a specimen of the ore, which we have shown to a silversmith in this city who says that it looks like the genuine stuff:

 

BROOKVILLE, Ky., March 16th, 1859

Mr. T. A. Curran:

 Dear Sir, --- I was down in the county of Pendelton, Ky., and in my travels, I came across some men who appeared to be very much excited, and upon ascertaining the cause, I found out that they had just discovered a very rich silver mine. Ore in abundance is lying upon the surface of the ground --- Some of this ore has been sent to Cincinnati and there analyzed and found to be rich, and hands are now employed to work them, and doubtless numbers of others are now emigrating thither, and ere long thee will be thousands of hands engaged in the business. I herewith send you a specimen of the ore.

 

                                                                                           Yours &c., M. W***
