    Gold from Pike’s Peak.

    ATCHISON, K. T., Feb. 24, 1860.

    The Pike’s Peak express and Salt Lake mail arrived this evening, bringing four passengers and $3,000 in gold dust.

    LEAVENWORTH, K. T., Feb. 25, 1860.

    The Pike’s Peak express arrived here this morning with twenty-five hundred dollars in gold and the mails. The news is meagre.
    Good prospects had been obtained in the mountains, between Denvers City and Gregory’s mines. Two cords of quartz, mingled with pyrites of iron, had yielded, after crushing, seventeen hundred dollars in gold.

    Trains laden with breadstuffs and produced had arrived from New Mexico.

    A new and extremely rich gulch had been discovered ten miles from Gregory’s mines, which, it is said, exceeds any of the old diggings in richness.
