Minerals in the South.

--There was left at our office a few days since a very fine specimen of copper ore found near Greensborough. N. C. The richness of this specimen would indicate a very valuable mine in that vicinity. It would be well if some capitalist would examine it and see what could be made out of it. Copper will be wanted by us in course of time, and the location of this in North Carolina will prove advantageous for the commerce with the sea-coast.

We see by the Mobile Register that a rich lead mine exists on the Warrior River above Tuscaloosa, in Alabama.

These are newly discovered or newly announced mines. Both Virginia and Tennessee are rich in copper, and lead ores long known. The lead mines in Southwestern Virginia are rich and extend over a surface of 50 miles in length. Both States have copper enough for all the wants of the South.
