and examined a large lump of auriferous rock or stone, just arrived from the neighbourhood of Annette Bay, Jamaica. Split open, it appears almost one compact mass of gold and silver, the pure silver ore laying in small lumps thickly inter- spersed with gold particles. This lump will yield about 70 per cent of the precious metals. This is considerably richer than many of the Californian specimentā€”Stanelard.
