From tho N. Y. Herald.
Some of the gentleman who carry tape in
(hs sorvico ofUncle Sam. and who are engaged
in locating on the face of this Continent those
painfully etraight township lines that make the
maps so very uninteresting, hare just stumbled
on 3cme of the ruins of the half-buried Mexico
of tho pp.3t, and they teem to fancy that they
have made great discoveries. They have found
7. region "abounding in ruins of elaborate and
sometimes magnificent structures, together
with relics of obliterated races, possessing
knowledge of the arts and manufacture ;" a
region, moreover, ''bearing evidence of having
been formerly under a high state of cultivation
for centuries." These gentlemen are so far from
having made any notable discovery that the
ruins they describe have been for some years
3Pt down in documents having so littlo of an
tiquity in them as the and Office maps.
It is known that of the different divisions of
the ancient Mexican people that which inhab
ited tho country on the Gils, river was one pe
culiarly advanced in the arts of life, and pos
sesselin a superior degree of what are called
in this 1153 tho mortl virtues. It gave another
evidence, if onewero needed, that the men who
live in the best country will be the best men
of any givon family another instance to assist
llis establishment, by induction, of the law in
human history that man risas or falls accord
ing io the climatic conditions in which he lives
and the soil from which hn cieriveij nutriment.
All the views tku of :he peopling of Mexico
alinit, W3 believe, tho thoory ot migrations. In
deed, migrations appear so constantly in an
ciout Mexican tradition that antiquaries can
not halp themcelve. There is n)so a general
acceptance of the thought that the movemen
was from north to south. It has been argued,
but not generally nccepteJ. that a raco from
Asia, having its seat anywhere on the upper
Pacific alope, and growing or moving toward
tho east, cttne into tho Mississippi velley, and
perhaps imdo the structures that are found in
Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky, but that, coming
in contact with the warlike raco of red
men, they were driven to the we st. Assuming
the fact of such a. movement, and that it was
always along great, water courses, it may be
traced by the ruina of edifices that were built
in ths centuries of struggle. They abound in
Niw Mexico; butthero are good illustrations of
many on the Rio GrauJo, in the nccouut of tho
militaryreconnoissanco into the Nave jo country
made by the United Statoa troop-? under Col.
Washington. The country on the Gila river
might well become tha permanent seat of such
a race, as the sea would stop furher westward
progress and tho mountains behind would bo
an officiant barrier against the barbarous, buf-
falo-oating enemy. It might even be the true
valley of Anahuac, from which were Bubso
quontly to go out the builders of tho city of
Mexico; for it 13 never Raid in the traditions
that the builders of that city ware driven from
their country by an enemy. They went out from
"the land of the hiroa" as a colony, and bo-
camc aa overteeaiui;' population May it not
have been the monument-strewn and wall-
worked region that Uncle Sam's surveyors are
rubbing theireyes at in the nineteenth centcry?
It is alleged that extensive deposits7 of tin
have bscu diicovered in tho Coaxt Range, in
the vicinity of Elizabeth Lake, some sixty miles
from this city. Specimens of ora now before us
show, by assay, an average ot JO per cent, tin,
in a formation of black oxide iron six per cent.
Mr. B. P. Peregoy, the dijeoverer, informs 1.3
that the specimens were from the surface. The
ledge is some twelve feat wide and can bs traced
for nearly two miles. Wood and water arc
plenty in the vicii.ity. the sHscovsrer iaan old
miner who ha3 long bn pursued by ill fortune,
but if his anticipations prove corref i, the fickle
dame has at last consented to smile upon him
most lavishly. The necessary papers were
recorded yesterday, and"to-diy hn returns to
take out a few tc us of the ore for shipment to
San Francisco. The ledge is on G-iverument
land, out of danger from the floating of any
grant over the locality. If this mino proves as
rich as is anticipated, its discovery will add
greatly to tha wealth and importance of the
county. Those who desire can see the ore speci

Editor TJmoe: &ie surveying party, under
Col. E. P. Gray, have been gradually working
their way down the side slopes of this c-aoa
for tha past three days. The work is unusually
rough, heavy and verpiengerous, yat we leel
sangnine of Buccss8.The deaert is not many
miles away from us,nd the prospect ia cheer
ing that p. practicable line can be found to
mako the descent th the summit thu3 fur,
fuliy ono-half of the fill lm beea made, and
the grade under 100ft. per mil. Tho Col.
3fieras determined to let no small difficulty stop
him, and from our present position over eteep
precipices, I should say no apparently greatone,
either. If the Kortthern slope of the ridge run
ning from tho mouth of the C.irizo canon east
ward to Coyote Stage Station doos not provo too
precipitous for goats to climb, I think my next
not will contain the joyful information that
the problem U successfully solved. By the end
of this weok if nothing happen to prevent it, wa
will hare advancod sufficiently todetermine the
possibility ot g?lting upon the Northern slope
The summit, where we crossed it, has a meas
ured elevation (so our leveller tails me) of 3,
839 fecit. Our present height 13 2,630ft. a
will probably fill GOO feet in going down this
cfciion, possibly more, and estimating tho di
ert to be 500 feet above tho sea when we wi:l
strike it, thoro will romain but about 1,500 faet
to descend, and fully twenty milei to do it in.
This looks cheering and practical; but tho
question is, will the- broken surface of the
ground, or rather hills permit ua to pass. Thi.i
can ba determined only by trial. W bare al
ready passed ovr ground that seemed impas
sible, so that it would be rash to say, it cannot
be dono. Our greatssl. difficulty, I apprehoad,
will be in carrying provisions and finding witer,
We are all in good spirits snd hopeful. "Pufh
forward" is tho order of tho day ; and no one
seems to look forward and anticipate trouble.
we deal with the present and feel that "sufficient
unto tho day is the evil thereof."

In tho vicinity of Spoon River, Illinois, is a
child that was born and has lived fire years with

widow of a soldier, formorly living in Marshall
county, who enlisted in the Sixtyfifth, or Scotch
Ragimunt, and was killed at the battle of Lex

hunband during nn engagement, when a cannon
ball carried his head completely away, his body
falling into her arms, and covering her with
blcod. When her chiid was born thero was not
tlo ssmblance of a head about it. The limbs
aro perfectly developed, the arms long, and tho

smoothly rounded off.
But tho most surprising thing of all is that
tha face is situated on the breast. Of course,
there being no neck, the power of turning the
head i3 wanting, except as the whola body is
moved; but this difficulty ia overcome by tho
sin jular faculty it possesses of turning its oyes
in their sockets, enabling it to see quite as wall
on either side as thoja more perfectly formed"

A gentleman informed us some weeks smee
that on his farm there ara nine married negro
couples, but not one. child among them. An
other friend from tho south sido of James river
told us the other day that there arc, within a
quartsr of a mile of his hou30, eight negro
families, among whom there has but one child
been born since the war. We have heard
many Buch accounts from various other sources,
all pointing to the fact that the increase of tho
colored people is now much less than their
decrease by death.
Indeed it is ths opinion of many of the most
observing men of the country that the race
will die out in time and become like the
