General S. F. Cary.-...
We noticed some days since that
General S. F. Cary, of Cincinnati, had
been appointed the Collector of Inter
nal Revenue for the First Congressional
District ol Ohio, vice K. IL W. Taylor,
removed. This appointment has been
made the occasion of attacks by the
press of Cincinnati on General Cary
and the resident, which are totally
uncalled lor and unwarranted, ilr.
Taylor is doubtless all the Commercial
and Gazette claim for him, yet is he a
bettr man or more competent for the
position than General Laryf Because
this is one of the most profitable offi
ces within the gilt of tbe government,
is it any reason why a highly respecta
ble, retired old gentleman, who has no
other claims upon the Union party,
save that he walks or rides to the polls
and votes for its candidates, should en
joy this lucrative position, to the ex
clusion of gentlemen of ecual ability,
character and business qualifications,
who have spent a greater portion of
their time during the war, in canvass
ing tbe Northern States in behalf of
the cause of our common country?
General Cary traveled over and can
vassed a large portion of this State, at
three different times during the war,
to assist ia recruiting the new as
well as the depleted regicienta of In-
diana volunteers, and we bear willing
testimony to the success which attend
ed his efforts in this matter, and for
which the Executive of this State felt
called on to thank him in behalf of
himself And the loyal people of In
diana. In addition to his labors in be
half of the Union cause in this State,
General Cary has canvassed several of
the Eastern States in behalf of the can
didates and principles of the Union
party, and any person acquainted with
the facts will not question but that his
labors in that line were as effective and
contributed as much toward the suc
cess and triumph of our party in thoge
States, as that of any of the distinguish
ed gentlemen and statesmen who par
ticipated in the canvassses referred to.
In the appointment of General Cary
the President has rewarded a most
faithful and jealous Unionist, an hon
orable, high minded christian gentle
man, whose business qualifications are
not inferior to those of the officer who
preceded him, and we predict that in
th administration of his office he will

Coruova, Mexico, March 2
No little excitement prevails among
the Americans in Mexico in regard to
an unexplored district of country,
hitherto unknown to the authorities,
lying about three hundred miles north
west lrom Jalapa, and which Ueneral
K Lyon, late of the Confederate army,
is now engaged in surveying. In near
ly every department in the Empire are
to be found immense bodies ot land
which tho foot of the Spaniard never
trod; many of them impenetrable for
est8, inhabited only by beasts of prey,
and whose shades the imagination of the
native Indian had peopled with demons
and vil spirits, upon whose domain it
was more than death to trespass, buca
is the land which Lyon has gone to ex
HOW THE CITY WAS DISCOVERED,
While the Imperial Commissioners
were investigating iiovernment tines
to lands to be allotted to emigrants,
they learned of the existence in the
"Tierra Caliente" of the district in ques
tion, and early in October last an ex
plorimr party was dispatched to this
tierra incognita. Upon reaching
- . .. r
Mesa de Mecatepeque, a small village
nearest the borders of the forest, they
were counseled by the Indians to pro
ceed no further, as no human being
ever passed the confines of their clear
ed lands and returned alive; demons
were said to dwell in every hill, giants
of hideous mien made their abode be
side every streamlet, while monsters of
every form and guise stood ready at
every footstep to seize and devour the
unwary traveler: all was "mala, and
not one syllable of good could be utter
ed in favor of the land.
Unable to procure sufficient assist
ance from the natives, the party pro
ceeded to make their explorations as
best they could, the forest was pecu
liarly dark and dense, and the jungle
almost impenetrable. With dimculty
they cut their way through the under
growth, and, being unacquainted with
the Yankee method ot ''biasing trees,
they marked their way tying hide
ropes to trees and bushes to mark their
trail. At the distance of several
leagues in the interior they discovered
tbe ruins or an ancient city oi great ex
tent, and of whose existence not the
slightest tradition prevails. Becoming
exhausted by their labors, the party,
without prosecuting their discoveries
any further, returned home, reaching
the Capital late in December. The
Emperor expressed great interest in
the result of the exploration, and at
onoe endeavored to send a stronger
and more efficient party to prosecute it,
selecting General Lyon, of Kentucky,
as commander of the expedition. The
General is admirably adapted to the
post He was Lieutenant Colonel of
the 2 J (rebel) Kentucky Infantry, and
was captured by General Grant at Fort
Donelson. Subsequently . exchanged
he was promoted Colonel, and after
ward commanded a cavalry brigade in
the rebel army, serving with rorrest
Since his residence in Mexico he has
been Surveyor General of the Imperial
Colonisation Association. General
Lyon was unable to periect his plaus
for the work until the 6th of February,
upon which date his party, consisting
of Americans, started from the city of
Mexico. They traveled in stages and
carts about two hundred and fafty miles;
the balance of their journey was com
pleted upon the backs of donkeys, ar- farmers who have reploughed their cot
riving at their journey's end about the ton fields and planted corn. The ma-
first week in March. The country is
called Metaltaloyuca, and is situated
some one hundred miles west of Tux-
pau, in the State of Vera Cruz.
SECOND VISIT TO THE LOST CITY,
Entering the jungle at the same point
as did tne previous explorers, tne
party proceeded slowly with their sur
veys. The neighboring Indians finding
that their legends were all false and
their fears groundless, became valuable
assistants, and large numbers being
employed, the wors: soon began to pro
gress rapidly. Aftej encountering two
or three lakes of considerable extent,
several rivers and swamps, and bayous
innumerable, a lolty mountain was
iound. which was ascended, and the
trees upon its top soon felled, permit
ting an uninterrupted view of the val
ley below. Ihe grandeur and loveli
ness of the scene is described as per
fectly bewildering. Mr. Chapman, son
of the celebrated American artist, who
accompanies the expedition, writes
that during his whole life in Italy he
never looked upon a landscape so en
chantingly beautiful, and at the same
time so grand and strising. .Little
time, however, could be spent in 7ieW'
ing tbe encnanting vaiiey ; tne great
a . 11 1 a
work was still before the. party, and tbe
axmen were soon pushed forward upon
the trail toward the lost city.
THE FOREST BCR&OraDIXI THE CITT.
as tne explorers cut tneir way
through the forest the trees grew
larger and older, showing that the
verses pf the forest were tbe last to be
abandoned, and had been cultivated
a Pa il . 1 "
long aiter tne interior naa become a
wilderness. Most of the beasts of prey,
natives of the American continent, as
well as animals peculiar to tropical
climates, were seen in great numbers,
and insects innumerable, many of them
before unknown to naturalists, gave
great annoyance to tbe adventurers.
Ueneral Lion writes that bottom
lands of the Mississippi River do not
compare with those he iound in the
Metaltaloyuca country, either for soil.
verdure or impenetrability, frequently
bis whole party not being able to make
more than five hundred yards of sur
veys per day.
DEfiCRIPTIOS OT THE CITT.
After a dangerous and wearisome
work the lost city was finally reached.
and for the first time the foot of the
Anglo Saxon pressed its streets. With
awe and wonder the party gazed upon
the worsis or an extinot raca . Trees
hundreds of years old were growing
among the ruins, showing that the city
had been abandoned before the days
of Cortez, and the architecture of the
buildings is of an order before un
known upon this continent Some few
houses are in a tolerable state of prs-
ervauon, and iuu uauiutuie, wane
i ' - J a.ii l. i:ali i v
their wall are adored with paintings of
rare beauty and merit Carved door
ways and images abound in every
street, evincing in their former inhab
itants a knowledge oi the hue arts not
found among the most civilized aborig
inal races. Most remarkable of all is,
some of this sculpture indicates among
the people the existence of the Christ
ian religion. Places of worship are
said to be numerous, and upon the re-
verse of a statuette of a man is care
fully carved that emblem of Christian
lty, the cross.
Whence this race or what their fate
is a mystery. The existence of this
city was unknown to the Aztecs, and
not & tradition concerning them is ex
tant among the Indians, who, when
spoken to respecting them, reply, " An
tique," "Antique." The doors of the
houses were generally closed with
rocks, showing the abandonment of the
city to have been a preconcerted move
ment ; but whether this waa caused by
civil wars, fears of savage foes or earth
quakes, is mere conjecture.
Gen. Lyon will make a thorough ex
ploration of the Metal taloyuca country,
and his report will be received with
rare interest, it tne lew letters re
ceived at the Capital from the party
state facts, the lost city will cause a
commotion in the literary world, as its
development must throw light upon
the hie tory of the lost race of America.
The Spanish party who visited it in Oc
tober say the ruins bear little resem
biaace to those ot lucatan, or any
other portion of Spanish America; and
their paintings and sculpture show
them to have been fully as far ad-
Tanced in the arts and sciences as the
most enlightened European nation of
vaeir own day,
ihe statements of the Spanish party
must be received with many grains of
allowance. Americans who have trav
eled through Yucatan, and other old
settled States of Mexico, concur in the
opinion that every fact is greatly exag
gerated, and tnat the lost city is but
the ruins of some Spanish city, de
serted by its inhabitants during the
slave insurrection early in the present
century. No record of such a city is
to be tound in the Mexican archives.
and it ever under Spanish rule its ex
istence had faded from the public
mind, ihe country is failed with ruins
of most remarkable character. And

Crop Prospects in Georgia.
Thb Ceops akd the Freedmes. As this
is a subject in which all are equally in
terested we have tasien some pains to
ascertain the condition of the crops
and the conduct of the freedmen of I
this county. We find that our planters
are in better spirits than they were at
the commencement of the year, at
which time everybody seemed to be
despondent, as the freedmen evinced
but little solicitude or even inclination
to engage their services for the present
year. uenerally, the freedmen are
working very well, and planters tell us
that their crops are in a forward state
of advancement many of them having
better prospects than usuaL
Ihe wheat prospects are excellent:
and, if no misfortune happens, a splen
did yield will be harvested beyond a
doubt A good deal of cotton has been
planted, and large profits are expected
by planters ihe crops are also good
wita excellent stands, if the freed
men will only hold out faithful unto
the end, this fall, we may expect a rea
sonable degree of prosperity to smile
upon this section of Georgia, and the
freedmen will find that honest labor
will be amply rewarded the ensuing
year. Planters generally, are paying
their laborers very good waees. Za
