DEATH, THE LEVELER.
The following celebrated and oft mis
quoted lines are from Shirle3''splayof ' The
Contention of Ajax and Ulysses.'
The glories of our blood and state
Are shadows, not substantial things;
There is no armor against fate ;
Death lays his icy hand on kings:
Scepter and crown
Must tumble down,
And in the dust be equal made
"With the poor crooked scythe and spade.
Some men with swords may reap the field
And plant fresh laurels where they kill;
But their strong nerves ,at last must yield ;
They tame but one another still :
Early or late,
They stoop to fate,
And must give up their murmuring breath,
"When theyj pale captives, creep to death.
The garlands wither on your brow,
Then boast no more your mighty deeds ;
Upon Death's purple altar nbw,
See where the victim-victor bleeds :
Your heads must come
To the cold tomb ;
Only the actions of the just
mell sweet, and blossom in the dust.
The "Wasnington correspondent of
the San Francisco Bulletin is very
cautious in his statements, and usual
ly correct m what he writes. On the
hill to charter a road from some point
in California to "Wickenburg, a little
discussion was had on its reference to
the committee on Pacific llailroads or
Public Lands, Avhen the correspond
ent says the Speaker remarked that
" Practically, it makes little difference
to which committee it goes, as neither
of them, will be called for reports at
He then alludes to the fact that
there is liitle prospect of the passage
of any more land grant bills by the
present Congress, the temper of the
House having been shown repeatedly
within the last few weeks by refusals
to allow Senate bills of that descrip
tion to be taken from the Speaker's
table, even for reference to their ap
propriate committees. It is probable,
however, that an exception will bo
made in the case of the Southern Pa

garded as an enterprise of truly na

The Latest Filibustering Sensation
-Sonora and Chihuahua the Ob
jective PointsInteresting Yarn.
The following is from a letter to The
New Mexican, of Santa Pe, date Jan.
20th, written at Silver City, Grant
county, on the 8th by "oneof the most
reliable and intelligent men in South
ern New Mexico." It is the first we
have heard of the scheme as a whole.
The Chicago portion of it Ave are fa
miliar with as per newspaper reports.
An old bilk organized there what they
called the "Arizona Alining and Colo
nization Co.," but we had no faith
that dupes enough could be found to
follow him oft" even on so wild a scheme
as the prospectus, &c, indicated and
set forth to the public. It may b;
well enough to keep track of the sub
ject, however, and so we give space to
this latest development so-called. If
the people about Tucson and in Ari
zona generally have not trouble
enough now at home, we advise them
to enlist in this 'outfit' at once
It may be startling: to announce the
probability of the next filibustering
scheme from the United States into
the territory of a friendly government
being made from this point, and some
point near lucson, m Arizona lerri
torv. Though startling to us here
there is a strong probability of it
The scheme is to get possession of the
Mexican states of Chihuahua and So
nora, and set up a " Pacific Republic,"
afterwards to acquire, as circumstan
ces will admit, Luwer California, Siu
aloa and the bordering states and ter
ritories. It is supposed by those
interested iri' the movement that the
building of the railroad through Chi
huahua and Sonora to Guaymas (Tex
as International Railroad,) and the
probable early completion of the 32nd
parallel road through Texas to El
Paso in the State of Chihuahua, will
rapidly develop the great resources
of these states, and bring to the New
Republic an immigration that will in
sure its stability and success to such a
degree that it will absorb all of the
western states of Mexico and perhaps
some of the territory of the United
The scheme is said to have support
from parties hi Chicago, California
and Texas, as well as from parties in
Sonora and Chihuahua. How exten
sive it is supported I have no means of
knowing. A. parly of not less than
500 picked men is to start this spring
from Chicago with avowed intention
of going to the "gold fields of Arizona."
Each man provided with the most ap
proved breech-loading fire-arm in the
United States. There are to be two
places, and perhaps tiiree, of rendez
vous ; one here, one at Tucson, Arizona,
and perhaps one at El Paso, Texas,
or in that vicinity. The forces with
which to begin the movement of in
vasion are estimated at 2,500. About
a thousand men, including such as
may be had from California and Ari
zona at Tucson, about same number at
this place, including the surplus popu
lation drawn here to the mines which
it is supposed will readily engage in
the scheme, and perhaps 500 Texans
who dissatisfied with the United States
government will be ready to under
take the accomplishment of the scheme
no matter how hazardous the under
taking may seem.
It is thought by the Pacific Repub
I lie filibusters that Sonora will be
i hands of Americans. Gen. Banning:
of California, is interested in Sonora
and owns large interests there. He is
reported hi favor of the scheme and
has very larg&influence both in Cali
fornia and Sonora.
To be successful in taking Chihua
hua it is anticipated will require more
effort ; but she has an unpopular gov
ernor, no military power, and with
the masses of the people ready to en
gage in a revolution. The govern
ment of Mexico, it is thought, will
have enough to attend to nearer at
It is certain that from here there
will be no obstacle preventing the fil
ibusters from going without let or
hindrance into Chihuahua to carry
out their designs. I cannot learn, who
is to command the expedition or en
terprise. Your correspondent gives
the foregoing for what it is worth.
The information was obtained from
disclosures made by parties here who
seem to be connected with and work
ing for the scheme. They have been
collecting information as to roads, sup
plies, &c. &c. and are not shy about
talking about the feasabihtv of the
scheme, and boast of its success, until
many of the people here favor it, and
have no doubt when the time comes
will join the expedition The matter
ought to be looked after.
