THE COPPER MINE.

' : — + ■ Our (Telegraph) Maharahara correspondent telegraphs from Woodville as follows: — " The contractors at the Maharahara copper mine drove fifteen feet past the sulphide lode. They intended opening out after driving six feet, but indications showed that more stone was near. The water came that strong it carried away the stone that was stacked and all the earth at the mouth of the drive. Water eased off on Saturday afternoon, and ground in the face coming in more true., Across face a nice slate. The slate attached to where the ton came from is the same as end of drive. Should hit the other lode very soon as the iron is next, and small pieces of verdigris showing. Dynamite affects the men very muoh."
