Charlotte, N. C., Nov. 22.-Char
lotte is the center qf interest of the
Associate Reformed Presbyterians of
this section to-day. Tho subject of
discussion to-day is the Svisdom of

Certainly a highly cultivated peo

this immense structure. Thc Rev.
Mr. Jones sees in these ruins the ar
chitecture of Jbgypt and the Nile,
while Mr. Stephens writes that "they
are different from the works of any
other known people-of a new order,
and entirely and absolutely anoma
lous, they stand alone." I present
herewith an accurate pi ture of the
ruins at Uxmal as recently seen.
This lengthy digression, in a rather
wide field of conjecture'and specula
tion, has only now brought forth ano
ther people who knew how to spin
and weave. When the Spaniards in
vaded and conquered Mexico they re
vealed a government and people who
had occupied that country for long
years, dynasty after dynasty. Pres
cott says on one occasion as they
(Cortez's army) approached an Aztec
city, they saw abundant signs of cul
tivation in the trim gardens and or
chards that lined both sides of the
road. They were met by parties of
the natives of either sex, the women
as well as the men, bearing bunches
and wreaths of flowers with which
they decorated the neck of the gene
ral's charger, and hung a chaplet of
roses about his helmet; flowers were
the delight of these people. Many of
the women appeared, from their rich
er dress and numerous attendants, to
be persons of rank. They wero clad
in robes of fine cotton, curiously col
ored, which reached from the neck
to the ankles, the men wore a sort of
mantle of the same rich material, "a
la .Morisca," in the Moorish fashion,
over their shoulders, and belts and
sashes about their loins. Both sexes
had jewels and ornaments of gold
around their necks, while their ears
ans nostrils were_ perforated with
rings of the same metal.
Montezuma sent to the King and
Queen of Spain generous .gifts of
these fine cottons, and mantles of
feather-work, the delicate and rioh
colored dyes of which m' \t readily
vie with the most beautifu paintings.
When opened and exhibited at the
Court of Spain nothing like such cu
rious and elegant fabrics had ever
before been seen in Europe, and wero
