A Gloomy Account from the 1ex1ican Bor
A gentleman writing from the
Mexican border to a government
official in this city Aive quite a
gloomy account of affairel in that re.
gi-n ofcountry. He states, in oteot
thatt to-day may bo seen floating the
flag of the revolutionists, and huzzas,
)uud and long. may be heard for Dias
and his followers. To morrow Jarez
is engaged in pulling down the flaunt.
ing lie, and tihe revolutionists are
franticilly fleeing before the govern.
inent forces only to return next day and
repeat their acts of violence and vil
lainy with greater vigor. The neces.
rities of the contending parties osuse
themn to be unpleasant and unprotfita
ble visitors, and their presence in
Arizona naturally brings traffio to a
star,dstill. Roaming bands of Mexi.
cans cover the country, stealing hor
ees, cattle sheep and provisions, and
capturing loaded trains of oars, which
they run off to Alexico, and in some
instances they commit murder.
The writer states thut it is feared
the Mexican people do not take the
required means to stop these raid-s,
and that there is a probability that
the people of Arisona will take the
matter into their own hands. In ad
dition to all this, the writer continues,

A correspondent writing frou
Ieury Lake, in Montana, describei
the locality as a scene of wonderfu'
giatndeur. The lake is situated it
the Rooky Mountains, at an altitud<
of 5,000 feet above the level of thi
sea. Looking fromt a high peak nea1
this b)dy of water he saw the pano

known to man. For within scope o
the c) e frou that point-having thei1
origin in L kko Henry - are thi

Time latus of the Deocrat.
The agitation of the Llberal move
ment throughout the country le.adAs to
a consideration of the exact &tutus I
occupied at the present time by the
Democratic Party, relatively speaking.
Som1e have gone so far as to assert
that if is politically dead, and buried
out of sight.
This view of the ease strikes us as
rather extrav.agant, and to a con6id
erable extent unwarranted. To out
own mind, much of its former
strength is forever exhausted, and its
chances of single-banded supremacy
slim 4nd hopeless. As now constitu
ted, its availability is limited to "a
balance of power" party, and as such
alone will its influence he felt. That
it is in danger of dissolution, we art
obliged to believe, and that its diaao -
lution will be accomplished, is a cer
tain fact, unless it discards from its
counoils many of its would-be foolish
and impraticable leaders.
Notwithatanding many adverse oir
tumstances, it can still remain intact,
r and do much good for the country at
largo, at the same time acting as a
preserver of those great prinpiples
which underlie constitutional govern
ment, and which can never perish. 1
The Demoorat'c party would be
playing into the hands of its bitter. I
est enemies by appearing in the po
litical old bingly arrayed against the
Grant Admilnistriation, and we are
-glad to know that its prominent lead
ers so fair appreciate this fact as to
keep the party for the present -in a
Spassive status, watching and waiting
quietly for the sIgnal for vigorous ac
Stion, not disorganized, nor dishlearted,
but simply keenly obsorving the times,
and noting when it is the proper me-.
ment to strike. A few "old fogy,"
"fossil," Democrats characterize this
policy as an exhibition of cowardice,
au werejoice to koow that "old
.fogy ism" has played out completely,
I hence their denunciations are not
Sworth noticing. Progressiveness is
'the order of the day, and it is a prin.
ciple worth cultivating. Away, say
we, with all abstract theories and im
practicable ideas. The Democratic
party has no need of them, and we
trust It will ihiow its good sense by
casting them off entirely, and be no
longer embarrassed by themn.
