MINING NOTES. Dredging returns--Otago, 17oz; Golden Gate, 12oz lldwt; Golden Treasure, lOJoz. The Clyde Dredging Company (Moa) had a rather small return last week—lloz. This dredge is now laid up for an overhaul, and will likely be stopped about ten weeks.—A good deal of excitement took place at Matakanui on Thursday'and Friday last, when the news spread about the splendid prospects received from the Clondyke Company's dredging claim, which has recently been taken up. Five hundredweight of stuff was put through a cradle and yielded 12gr, which is equal to 2dwt to the ton. Worked by means of dredging this would mean a smSll fortune to the shareholders. There is also gold in the Dunstan Times.'
