Chapman, sou of the celebrated American
artist, who sives a irlowinir account of the
j beauty of the scenery in that vicinity.-
1 We cut the following from the communi
cation referred to :
After a dangerous and wearisome work
; the lost city was finally reached, and for
the first time the foot of the Anglo Saxon
pressea us streets, wuii awe ana won

der the party gazed upon the works of an
extinct race. Trees hundreds of years
old were growing among the ruins, show
ing that the city had been abandoned be
fore the days of Cortez, and the architect
ure of the building is of an order before
unknown upon this continent: Some few
houses are in a tolerable state of preserva
tion, and still habitable, while their walls
are adorned with paiutings of rare beauty
and merit. Uarved doorways and images
abound in every street, evincing in their
former inhabitants a knowledge of the
fine arts not found among the most civi
lized aboriginal races. Most remarkable
of all is. some of these sculptures indicates
among the people the existence of the
Christian religion. Places of worship are
said to be numerous, and upon the re
verse of a statuette of a man is carefully
carved that emblem of Christianity, the
Whence this race or .what their fate is a
mystery. The existence of this city is
unknown to the Aztecs, and not a tradi
tion concerning them is extant among the
Indians, who when spoken to respecting
them reply, " An'tique," "Antique." The
doors of the house were generally closed
with rock?, showing the abandonment of
the city to have been a preconcerted
movement; but whether this was caused
by civil wars, fears of savage foes or earth
quakes is mere conjecture.
MY. Rudkins is a spry old gentleman
of sixty, but having never been married,
passed off for forty-five, and would like to
take tcu off of that. During the cold

the vicinity of a party of Union sokkors
iu Texas. Beinir well dismiised, lie en
tercd freely into conversation with the
soldiers of the guard, and in the course
of the conversation asked what they would
do with old Wigfall if they were to catch
him. "Oh, we would haug him, certain,"
was the reply. "And you would serve
him right," replied Wigfall. "If I
should be with you I have no doubt I
should be pulling at the end of the roj)c
myself! The double entendre was not
suspected, und its wit was therefore lost,
but it is worth producing now.
The Fenian movement against Canada
is entirely suppressed. Some of the
rougher sort, hailing from the city of
New York, made a poor return for the
free transportation given them by the
Government. On Wednesday night of
week before last, three car-loads of them
on the- Hudson River Railroad commit
ted a serious of outrages. Besides de
stroying freight on the trayi, they robbed
a hotel at Tivoli, and threw one of their
number out of the wiudow while the train
was in motion.
