It is thought they will have to g6 about 150 feet before they, strike the lead. In the mean time they are erecting a whim, as the depth will' soon be too great for the^men to heave, the dirt up. with the winch. Another store is in course of erection, not far from the flax mill • iii fact, building appears to be the order, of the day in the township. Some of the houses are nice looking and commodious, but. others, however comfortable they may be inside,have an enlarged- sentry-box appearance about them, which, does not add to the beauty of the township. -, *
