PRESERVATION INLET.

Encouraging reports have been received from Preservation Inlet by the last. mail. The news was brought by Mr D, McKenzie, who arrived at the Bluff from the Inlet on Saturday last. He reports) that Messrs Cooper and Hodge unearthed three nuggets of gold l at Coal Island last week weighing from I- to 4 ozs. each- The Crown Goldmining Co. at Cuttle Cove have in two drives, one 140 ft. and the other 90ft.. They will start rising on to the cpiartz in another 10ft.. The battery is erected and the water races constructed. The prospects of this mine are beyond expectations'. The first cake of gold will arive in Xmas week. Gulches HeadSluicing Co. have their dam almost completed, their water races' cut, and ihe pipes laid. Sluicing operations start at once, and the prospects are excellent. Wo trust that this report will prove better than anticipated, for there are several well-known citizens in this town who have spent large sums of money in the Inlet, and for their sale, as well as that of the district we wish the mines will prove splendid gold-bearers. The steamer service to the Inlet is very much appreciated, and it is hoped, in the interests of the district that the Government will subsidise the mail service for another term.
