Most of the choice lands in the vicinitr
of Alhuqurquc are owned, and occupied by
rmichuro-, and the remnants of several al
most degenerated trilws of Indians. The
upper latidrf, Imuk from the river, arc util
ized bv stock-raisers. Vast herds of sheep
and goats roam over the grassy plains and
mouutains. After traversing the liio Grande
country for evcral days we entered
but as I have already given in mv "descrip
tion of Santa Fo " a vague perception of
what a Mexican town is like, my descrip
tion shall Ikj very brief. On approaching
the town it presents a very fine view, with'
its grotesque building?, its large Open plni;
the pretty groeu and shaded lawns, with just
a few ktuuted tropical fruit trees here and
there, denoting that we are approaching the
southern country: and the surrounding vine
yards with tho never failing crop of grnjios
hanging in benutifulclttsters from the strong
and healthy vines. A we iwss through I
observe some elegant residences, i. e., ele
gant for Mexican architecture the sur
roundings arc beautiful the extensive
groumhTarc adorned with tlie prettiest of
gardens. These fine places are owned by
wealthy Mexicans who have large tracts of
land, and vast herds of sheep they live
like lords and count their wealth by mil
lions. The large Cathedral presents the
most imposing teatureof the town; it is said
to have been erected over a hundred and
tifty years ago, and at that time laborers em
ployed upon it received only five cents per
day for their services. The material of
which it is constructed is mostly adobe:
hence, 1 think it mu-t Ik' the cheapest con
structed edifice ever erected. The church is

Pit a CBcrrnn On. A story too good
to be lost bus just leaked out on a young
man who came here last summer from Ar
kansas. His occupation was that of a stage
driver, and "horse" was about the only sub
ject he could talk intelligently upon. A
short time since some of his companions
urged him to buy a " Idled shirt," and our
hero waltzed into Hash ford's ami bought
one, neck 17 inches, then went home and
dressed for the party. His friends noticed
that it was open backed and without a col
lar, and told him that he must buy one.
Sauntering into Goldwater's, Sam fitted him
with a linen collar, M inches. The collar
adjusted, he started lor the ball. In danc
ing the back button kepi getting loose, and
annoyed him considerably, aud kept him
busy poking it down. At last, a lady friend
with whom he was dancing, came to his re
lief und oaid, " Hank. I see your collar an
noys you some, let mo pin it for you." Hank
replied " yes, pin it, and if ever I wear an
other one of these things I'll put a crupper

The Suvngo incline, also at a point near

"Washington, August lo. In the Cabinet
meeting yesterday, it was announced that
the Governor of Texas would demand of the
Mexican authorities the culprits who cros

recently, of right's disease of the kidneys.
The writer of this notice, who for many
years was intimate with John P. and in lSfill
first made the acquaintance of Ned and
Sam, on their arrival at Bannock City from
Kansas, has had amide opportunity 10 judge
of the relative abilities of tho brothers, and
while he has .;o hesitation in according to
tlie rJi-ntr the possession of remarkable
powers of thought, and superior judgment
in matters financial as well as political, he
is nevertheless firmly impressed with the
belief that Ned was lite brightest member of
the .Tone's family. Not so ambitions as John,
nor had hethe bull-dog businessenergy of S;un
yet he possessed more general information
than both, and was one of the most compan
ionable men and agreeable conversationalists
on the Coast. To his political, as well as
personal friends he was us true as steel, re

A ferry is by far the safest crowing over the
