The First Szplrits of "2iliyf tit Ed. '
Frcsa the Lincoln Joarsal,
which promises to become the Chica
go of New Mexico, is another quaiut
old town, jmt 902 miles from the Mis
souri river. Like Santa Fe, it is loca
ted in the valley of the Rio Grande,
surrounded by mountains whose tow
ering peaks heem to cast a hliadow
over the town. It h distant from
Santa Fe, about 100 mile?, and Ls di
vided into what is knowu as the new
and old towns. The former u located
about the depot of the Atchison, To
peka & Santa Fe railroad, and the old
town about one mile and a half away.
The stranger alighting from the cars,
is surprised lo find the streets lighted
with gas and a street railway running
to and from the old town in full oper
ation, the streetK thronged1 with white
people and unlike Santa Fe, the pre
vailing language spoken being En
glish. New houses, made of adobe,
stone and lumber, arc going up in all
directions. The inhabitants are prin
cipally Americans who have only been
in the territory a hhort time, but they
have brought with them from their
eastern homes, that spirit of push, en
terprise and go-aheadulivenes, that is
calculated to make a great city where
only eleven months ago there was
only a vast .and plain.
There is quite a difference in the
age of the two towns. The new one in
just eleven months old, while the old
one is over SuO years of age; jet the
new town has already out grown the
old one. One of the prominent con
tractors informed your correspondent
that ten months since he could have
carried away on his back all the pine
lumber there was on the town site; to
day there are four extensive lumber
yards in the place, and the dealers find
It impossible to supply the demand
for lumlKjr. Many of the houses are
adobe, two tories, plastered on the
inside and covered with Portland ce
ment on the outside. The leading
hotel of the town the Armijo (pro
nounced Armeho) is a large, three
story building, made of adobe. The
rooms arc large, airy, high ceilings
and furnished in elegant style. The
rates (for a Millionaire) are very mod
erate. $4.50 per day. Two wholesale
houses, each 150 feet long and fifty
feet wide, stand near the depot and
they are filled with goods of every des
cription. OLD ALnrQCEKQrE,
a mile and a halt distant from the
depot, is much like Santa. Fe. The
street are very irregular and narrow,
the houses adobe, and mostly one
.-tory. The principal businc.-s houses
Mirround the public square or pia.a.
The proprietors are either Jews or the
descendants of old Spaniards who
came to this country centuries ago.
They earry immense stocks of goods
and seem to be doing a thriving busi
ness. Saloons conducted by Ameri
cans may be found on every street.
They are well patronized by the Mexi
cans, who delight in drinking and
The agricultural resources of trie
territory, 1 should say, are vcrv mea
gre, though the aborigines delight in
telling you Munchausen stories of the
productiveness of their soil, and grow
rapturous in speaking of their big
onions and mammoth cabbages; but
when you mention the cereals, they
shrug their shoulders, and with elbows
akimbo and long faces, quietly reply
that the rainfall is small, an that irri
gating largo fields of wheat and oats
is too much trouble.
The farms, or gardens, as I should
call them, are situated close to the
banks of the Rio Grande river, the
water from the stream being conduc
ted to them through large ditches or
The climate of New Mexico is cer
tainly the finest on this contiuenU
The atmosphere is dry and clear and
pulmonary diseases are scarcely
known; the proiortion of deaths from
consumption, I am informed, being
smaller than in any other state or ter
ritory. The summers are long and
warm, but such extreme heat as is ex-
fierienced in Nebraska is never known
lere, owing to the elevated position of
the country and the breezes from the
mountains. The rainy season usually
commences in July and continues
through August; but this year it has
commenced earlier than before. As I
write, May ISth, quite a heavy rain is
falling, and the Mexicans are jubtlant
over the prospects for heavy crops of
onions, cabbage and hay. The moun
tain sides anTeovered with heavy bod
ies of pine, cedar and spruce trees;
while here and there along the water
courses, may be found an occasional
cottonwood or sycamore tree.
The conuuerce and manufactures of
.New Mexico as yet are not worth
speaking about, and the product; of
her mines arc not visible to the naked
eye. You can see the quartz from a
thousand and one different mines, and
the owners are able to tell you some
wonderful stories in regard to their
richness; but when you ask them to
show you a handful of nuggets or au
ounce or two of placer gold, you have
got them on the hip "they can't show
As a pastorial region, I should say
that New .Mexico was not a success.
The vast expanse of emerald green
that covers your prairies in Nebraska
to-day, is. nt to be found here; instead
a great valley covered with sand, with
here and there a clump of grass, a
cactus or something of the kind. I
failed to find in the vicinity of Las
Vegas, Santa Fe, or Albuquerque, a
single herd of 100 cattle, but for sheep
husbandry this country has no super
ior. From the Colorado line clear
through to Albuquerque thousands
upon thousands of sheep may be
found grazing in the valleys of the
Arkansas and Hio Grande, and I
might say, :th& truthfully too, that this
forms the chreT industry of the terri
tory. In a word New Mexico is ninety-seven

per cent sheep

being discovered, were worked centu
ries ago by the Spaniards with splen

from personal examination that the
mines were so nun in preauiu mciair
that the old aborigine carried miles
away the dump dirt and covered the
mouth of the mine up, that they
might not le discovered by their foes,
the Indians. Thee old mines are
being discovered again, and are said
to be very rich, but the great scarcity
of water prevents working them suc
cessfully. The water in this country is not the

lias been taken for such an individual;
lmt he knows a fellow from Nebraska
who was.) After being introduced,
the Albuquequian, who m nine cases
out of ten, is either a geologist or a
practical miner, asks you to take a
drink or a cigar. After this, he is pre
pared for business, and he commences
by inviting vou to what ho calls his
museum. The museum is a small
room containing a long table, and a
few shelves on the wall, completely
covered with minerals of every des
cription. Here you find a specimen
of quartz from tlie "Long Jolm mine,"
which your new found friend informs
you assays $640 to the ton. Then he
picks up another stone, and handling
it tenderly and carefully, and, with a
smile on ins face, he exclaims with
joy: "Here, my friend, is a small speci
men from tho'Mary Ann lode,' that
is richer by far than any quartz that
has ever been found in California, Col
orado or Montana." You see the
Albuquerquian is about to become
excited over the array of stones before
him, anil you are prone to remark,
"Well, lei's see sonic of the gold?
You have shown me plenty of quartz,
but no gold." This settles the hash.
He looks tijKin you in disgust, and
mutterinc somcthinc aloul tender
foots, who dont know gold quartz
from a market basket, he walks off.
The next man you meet invites you
to the museum; ou tell him vou have
already visited that place and inspec
ted the stones But he must Hiow
you something new, something rich,
a specimen from tht "Big Bonanza of
Mexico;"' not a picked specimen, but
one that he gathered from a million
strewn on the ground, just before he
left the mine. Ho reaches deep down
into his breeehe pocket and hauls up
a few dirty lookinir ttones. spreads
them upon the palm of his left hand, I
and with the iudcx finger of the right
hand raised, proceeds to dilate upon
their richnes-?. You look upon the
man in surprise, and find that his
face is beaming with 6miles, and that
he has found his hobby. You spmpa
thize with him, but the dread of being
talked to death comoels you to say,
'But where is the gold ?" This is the
straw that breaks tlie camel's back.
He turns from you m disgust and re
marks in oUo voce, "d d if you know
gold quartz from cobble stones."
The next friend you meet is an agri
culturist who '"sees millions" in the
productiveness of the soil. He greets
you with a smile and clasps your hand
warmly. He asks, "Well, what do
think ol ew ilexico? lou answer,
"a fine country, splendid climate,
great place for sheep and goats; but
your soil, sir, seems to be too sandy
for the cereals." The agriculturist
straightens himself out, and tapping
vou on the shoulder exclaims: "Never
more mistaken in your life, sir! The
soil is very rich, and all we want is'
rain! a little rain!" You gaze upon
the great plain of red sand, and look
at your new found friend in amaze
ment, wondering whether he is "kid
ding" you or in dead earnest; you sec
no smile on his cuuntenance, and find
that he means just what he says; you
dislike-to wound his feelings and blast
his hopes of a productive soil, and
begin by saying that such soil would1
not raise white beans in tlie country
you came from, but here it may pos
sess productive powers that yon art
not aware of. This pleases the old
gentleman, and he again becomes ex
cited, and gesticulating in a terriWe
manner, he exclaims ''Wbv, sir ! we
