The Bedford (IN) Independent says an immense excitement prevails in Pleasant Run Township on account of large quantities of silver having been discovered on the farm of Tyre Henderson, Esq., about five miles northeast of Heltonville. Mr. Henderson and a number of miners are busily engaged day and night digging in the earth for the precious metal; but just how much has been obtained, or in what proportion to the amount of earth dug, our informant could not tell, but the fact remains that silver has again been discovered in Lawrence County.
