On TT5J2 GlOVlfiUKOlt'S IMTPHSDlTJOff. e append the conclusion of the notos on the Cavernosa Expedition, begun in tho third number of the Mjkbr : After carefully exploring tho upper valley of the Sun Francisco, wo crossed over to the east side of the river, for tho purposo of pursuing our explorations towards the head waters ot tho Jaalinn. W left, the valley on iho 1st of March. travelling- dun euat, and soon struck the chuin of mountains which bounds the valley ou tbo oust and stmt h-easU It presented the same appear ance a$ tho mountains we had previously travelled through. We experienced little difficulty in our firt days'" march, and in the afternoon came to a small vullisy in the mountains, which appear ed to have been a favorite camping ground ol the Indians, judeirif? from tho number of lires which had been tlure. It afford uu excellent ahcltnr for stock, being bounded on all sides by mountains and lofty peaks, from which a person can overlook the whole valley. We camped here for tho night, at a spring of water, which the Governor culled Oak Spring. The soil is ol a red candy nature, bearing excellent fi;d for anmialH. 1 he rock resemble the old red f anrJ itone, and in some places rise perpendicularly, similar to Inscription liock. On the, next day wrt continued our eastern counSe, through large and almost imputable canous, and numerous dry creeke. About noon va came into a small valley,. through which ran th main fork of the San Francisco. It was a boautitul mountain fetram, by fur tho largest wo had Been ; the water was perfectly transparent, and fiom its liafiks, at a huight of 20 or rfO feet, wo could plainly sue the udh in the waters below. The Bund ban looked favorable for gold, but it wa difficult to hud " the color. I ho water rnahed furiously through these mountains, which in some placed rose to a great height. We crossed, nd beuun to ascend a mountain on tho opposite side, which wui by far the worst wo had yet met. Alter gieat diuiculty, we reuched the aiummit, which proved to be a largo mesa, from which we had an excellent view of the surround ing country, i he au r runcisco Mountain was about due north ol us. The stream belore men tioned runs from the north-eaat, and probably head: tit the foot of the mountain. Doubtless, Leroux's, New Years, and Volunteer Springs are its head-waters, and are consequently the head waters of the San Francisco Hiver. and do not. as some writers suppose, empty into the west and north-western Fork. To the north (gast'arrt mountains covered with pine nnd.pifioh. I hey are probably the termination of the volcanic rene., To tho south ami south-wost appears a broken maun of Urn prless mountains strtjtch-iwg towards the Utla Kjver, whilst the north-rt portion of the uppc vaiiey soems to ex- inu. urontioK 'ruilmt; country in tho direction of Fort Whippto, which confirm my lormer ats- iMrlin. thnt a good, wagon road may bfi uade j Irwin tho valley, which would be a great impcot fHHit u the Ohavtts cut-oil During the afternoon some of tho Californians surprised a ranchena, though (us they stated) they were not aware of it thenieelves, until with in a few paces of it ; when, as a matter of course, they gave battle, but the Indiana turned out in Denso of ditches would b greater. Iho soil is simitar to that of the npper valley, and soma large cotton-wood grow on the banks ol tho river. It t not na likely to bti overflowed as the upper valley, the land eloping mo. e towards tho river. There is plenty ot mnsquiio, wnicn makeo excellent fire wood, and good roada might; be made to almost any part of the Territory. There is no timber within 40 miles ; the cactus and chollui flourish thero; iU chief advantages over the upper valley, are its moans of access, and its not boing subject to inundation. Wk arrived at Woolsoy s Uaucu on mo Kin of Murch. In 8ummirH up, we might say the country wo passed through was good foi stock- raising, we found the be3t grass on too highest mesas, and so scarcity of it anywhere. I hero was plenty of water lor stock on the whole rou .e ; our longest march, without water, being 2G miles, on oor return. We found very little agricultural land, and none, we believe, that would produce without irrigation. As a mineral country it is unpromising, owing to the streams of lava which have covered the greater portion ol it. Uowever, there nre some places, especially tho tract of land drained by the Agua JLria which present good indication? of metallic wealth ; and that there are good gold-field still further east than we went, is the prevailing impression of those who know tba character ot tbo country.
