turned from a ploasanfc trip to tho Gulf,
Unough u very iOitilo section Of tue Ko
publio, I will try to givo you a description
of a fow thiugs soon ou tho way and tho
country in gonoral.
Tho Moutoroy and Gulf Itaihoad mus
from Monterey,to Tampico, in almost a
direct lino, a diatuuco of about ?350 milos,
and it takes tito train two days to mako
it, and tho roadbod hoing- in bau condi
tion, jolts ono up considerably, ,*'.viug
BiiAloioht oxereiso to all.
Leaving Moutoroy tho sconory from tho
train is vory protty, prcsontlug a semi
tropionl appearance, with lofty moun
tains iu tho distauco and Holds of greou
corn, sugar onno and other crops, through
whioh run ragged, unkopt hodges and
irrigating ditches. Farm hands dressed
iu whito shirting, with wido brimmod
hats, aro BOOH occasionally, somo plowing
witli Amorican turning plows and some
with forked logs witli iron points on thom
and a yoko of ox ou pubing them.
From Moutoroy to victoria tho country
is gonorally lovel, covorod with brush,
grass and oaetus, interspersed with
ranohes and a few small towns, agricul
ture and stock raising being tho indus
trios. ShopbordB with droves of goats
and herds of horses and cattlo aro seen
occasionally, and they livo fat all yoar on
tho range with but littlo attention.
Victoria, the capital of tho State of
Tamaulipas, is a town about the size of
Walhalla, and is a vory protty place iu
dood. I Sanana, orango and other tropical
growths aro s,eon ovorywhore ovor it,
giving it a tropical appearance. While
tho sun is vory warm thoro during tho
day, tho evenings and nights aro always
cool aud a nico hroozo is ovor stirring,
and thoro being vory little rain fall, thoro
is not sufllciont moisture to causo decay
of vogotahlo matter, consequently it is
very healthy, which cannot ho said of
many othor tropical towns. Tho parks
aro beautiful, laid oil' in walks among
luxuriant trees and tropical shrubs and
Howers. Fuchas, oleanders and roses in
groat confusion perfume the air.
From Victoria down tho country fast
hocoinos lower, tho brush gets douser,
tho heat becomes gl oater and tho grass ?B
thick all along, and in tho windows and
doors of tho section houses dozens of
parrots aro BOOU ; some pot badgers and oc
casionally a monkey is noticed. Conleys
aro seen with herds of horses and cattle,
all in good condition. Wild game
abounds, such as deer, turkoy, wild
guineas and many smaller animals, and
rivers full of fish run through it.
Tampico is a city of about 7,000 in
habitants, situated on a hill four miles
from tho Gulf, on tho P?nico river, and
ocean vossols can come up tho river to
tho city sineo tho jetties were put in, as
tho river is wide and deep. Tho rivers
aro full of canoes laden with tropical
innis, precious and dyo woods, skins,
honoy and other produce which is ex
ported from Tampico. A passenger train
leaves ovory" two hours for La barra, a
point on tho (Juif co'ist, at tho month of
tho river. Faro is 12> -lonts. There aro
baths thoro; a wide sandy beach, covorod
with sea sholls of all sizes, colors and
shapes imaginable, and on one side tho
grand, boundless old Cult wars and.
lashes its waves fcrover, which is a beau
tiful sight to an inland dweller.
Many vessels aro at Tampico all tho
timo loading and unloading froight and
passengers, which givo lifo to tho city.
Tampico is tho homo of tho parrot.
They aro raised and sold by tho thou
sands and thoir chatter is ovor bearii.
Wborevor you go lhere, bo c ."? ovor so

season of the year tho rivor .morally
