Strana 58 - Secretary of State of the United States, have hereunto subscribed my name and caused the seal of the Department of State to be affixed. Done at the City of Washington this Seventeenth day of September, AD 1866, and of the Independence of the United States of America the Ninety first.
Strana 54 - I submit to my readers, (some of the least voluminous of which I subjoin,) and that I have adopted nothing upon mere verbal report. The States of Durango, Sonora, Chihuahua, and Sinaloa, contain an infinity of mines hitherto but little known, but holding out, wherever they have been tried, a promise of riches superior to any thing that Mexico has yet produced.
Strana 61 - In testimony whereof I hereunto set my hand and seal of office this 2d day of June, AD 1863.
Strana 52 - ... immense quantities of rubbish thrown out. Much dirt and sand have washed in and covered the vein; but general report says that the mine has no water in the interior, and that the ores were so rich that the best yielded from 25 to 30 marcs of silver to the arroba (of 25 Ibs.).
Strana 53 - That the great mineral treasures of Mexico commence exactly at the point where Humboldt rightly states the labors of the Spaniards to have terminated, (above latitude 24°,) is a fact now universally admitted by the native miners, although heretofore but little known in Europe. The states of Durango, Sonora, Chihuahua, and Sinaloa contain an infinity of mines hitherto but little known, but holding out, wherever...
Strana 53 - Not immediately finding the principal vein, they divided the money, and discontinued their works. The mine is laid open from the surface 400 yards in height. Tradition says that the first discoverers found the vein of virgin silver half a vara in breadth, that it was abandoned in the Apache war, with the vein as described above two varas, and ores of seventy marcs per carga. The richness of these ores appears almost incredible, but when we consider the great quantities of bars of silver that Sonora...
Strana 55 - Arlzpe, (about 36° north latitude,) in a situation possessing great local advantages, a fertile country, the vicinity of two large rivers, and a communication by water with the Pacific. The mines themselves were formerly celebrated for their riches, and the capital required to bring them again into activity is very small. The specimens which I have seen of the ores extracted from them, almost induce one to adopt the theory, that the proportion of silver contained in the ores increases as you advance...
Strana 53 - Aguage, and many others, are situated to the north and north-east of Nacosari, at no great distance from San Juan del Rio, built upon a stream which falls into the Yaqui. These minerals are equally rich with those already described. Final contains a greater proportion of gold than silver. It is recorded in the archives of Arispe, that the former owner, a lady, by name Maria Quijada, lent, at one time, 700 marcs of gold for the use of the Government.
Strana 61 - In Testimony Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and seal of office the day and year first above written.
Strana 60 - ... City, County and State of New York, to be Executors of and Trustees under this my said will, and I direct that no bond or bonds shall be required of them, or either of them, either as Executors or Trustees, or in any capacity in which they may act under this will. In Witness Whereof I, Henry W. Ranger, have hereunto set my hand and seal at the City of New York, this twenty-first day of January, One thousand nine hundred and fourteen.
