Since tlen, annually, if tlit often.
er, schenes for Mexican conquest and
annexation have been brought before
The latest prnject enlbrace tc
tonuest of Chihuahus, Cothila i,
Now Leoin and Sonor-a and their sub
,equent annexation to the Uniteu
Sta Los. A. number of capitalists of
tais couniry, and many wealthy citi
zens. of Mexico, are said to be Con
neted with the scheic.
A brief outline of the project is as
follows : The Texas Pacifij Railroad
is in the course of construction from
botlh terinini, and the track will be
finiied about the middle of the route,
somlev.h0es near El Paso. Some fif.
teen thousand laborers will be en
gngerI on the road ; and when the
work is conpleteds they will be div
ohargod in a a country where It will
be impossibie for them to obtain om
),- ,uent, aid as uch men are gen.
Cr.iy improvideut and thuut
money, they will be glad to accept
anything that they way offer. livw
thee men are to be utilized ii thum
stated. A sciLty has been organ
ized, with heaaoquarters at New Or
leans. composed exclusively of ollicers
of the Unuon and Confederate armies,
n ono beiog eligible who has not ob.
tained the rank of Captain. Some
\chak~ before the completion of the
r,.ilr-.ad these gentlemen will be sent
forwird in detachments to make
the'o; elves personally acqliainted
with the laborers i and on the dis
uharge of the latter they will attempt
to erganize them into an army.
Coinutssarios and oamp nquipago
are to be furnished by the enpitalists
who back them. They will then
march over the Northern States of
Mexico and raiso the flag of inde
peadence in each of them. The poo.
pl- of these Stiles are to look favora.
bLy out the enltr-eprise, and offer no
iio0lestat ion or interference, and the
government of' .etico will be power
less to) prevent it. The nett step
will bo nr.nexation to the United
States ly a vote of the people, as was
the case wi'h Texas. Tom Scott and
Genoral Grant are montioned as
connectod uith or favorable to the
A New AMcropolis.

A Chinese Iloror.t
When'the droudful story of the Mas.
ancre of twenty thousnd pSeopl in
the Chiueso Nty of Tali (Tali-fiu),
was rinnounced by telegraph, some
three months ago, thero was at general
ekpression of incredulity. It seems
hardly possible that such a vast do

ed, even among the tiger like and
vengeful trib63s which inhabit the
southiwestern frontiers of the Ciinese
Enpire. But late'r details of the
bloody Collapse of the Mohammedan
rebellion in Yunnan confirm the
dreadfux tidikngs. q Tali-fu so far
away from the local puimts of the
WCster civization that the butchery
of its entire population rouses inot
even a Litiguid interest ? Modern his
tory gives no such record of any such
motatrous soitiifice of Ihu.an life
['or the number slain, according to
the naost trultwor'hy necount, is
more than forty thouu.'id people.
The pitoons tale may never be told
'o us in full ; but we are slowly aid
ob..curely learning enough to aeimure

Yunnan, has, after o'ghteen of flue- 1
tIunting vigor, gone out ii blood.
The Moliammedais of the province
of Yunmnan have maintained their re
iigiou:s faith for many centuiies. -J
Wd 1655 they were strong enough to
defy the Imperial govreiument, drive
out the representatives oW the empe
ror and establish a quasi authority
of their own. In 1855 the contral
authority of their enpire Was vented
in Suiltan Sult-imau, as lie was called,
and the capital was fized at Tali-fu,
now made inmouirfutbily famo us The
Chinese government, then distracted
and Iariassod by other rebellions
which threatuted the integrity of tho
emlire, as well as by alarming
fotoign oirr.pliont.iots, was forced to
leave the Mohammedans of Yunnau
to their own devices,
Finally, relieved from inore itumi

ed the city of Tali. The "Suitan" ie
said to have surrendered himself on
condition that the people should be
-parel. Poisoning his wives and
childron (of which, we makc no doubt
lie had an abundauce,) lie entered his .
palanquin and was borne to the camp
of the vigorous boelgers. When
the curtains of hisx equipago were
drawn, he was found dead. Ile had
swallowed a fatal draught before
leaving his capital. The populace of
Tali-fu were given over to the
sword. Momien, the next important
city of the rebelliouis province, sub
sequently shared the sa rme .ate which-,

O Suaday last., as the Rev. Mr.
Garman, in York, Iennsylvaniia, was
conducting the services at the UNion
Church, the sexton handed him a
note. After the sermon Vas comple
ted the millister announced he had
the pitasure of stating that a couple
in the congreg-tion desiredl to be
uniitetd in the holy bonds of matri

imnmediate ly present themselves.
Tlhaere was a considerable flutter in
the as emiblage-ev'ery eye staringx
arouni.d to roo the ha ppy coiuple. A t
ter somne delay, a fliu mand buoyant
couple came nmarchinog up the aislo to

prompjtly, '"Yes I wili," but to the di..

detection of this gigantie swindle is
c:aimed by Col. Col. Whitley, Chief
of the dceret %Servioce Bureau, who, in

Willitans arranged an extensive and
etfeetive plan for the simultaneous ar

obtuining a suflicient amount of evi

lirgo fotce of pioced men wore sent
in various di..,guises to, scour the
suspected regions, gathering iuforin&
tion, an1d !carning the hitunts of the
.cing. In due time, these spies were
called in unid their reports carefully
exaimined. It. is ar'erted by s-vime of

Ah Improbable Story.
e Tho prOsenOe of Andrew :Johnson
in Washington ..recalls to mind tho
a memorable impoaohment trial, in
P which lie wns defendant, toward the
1lose of his termn of office as President
0 of the United States. The late Cor
neliuso Wendell, who wvas familiar
0 with the iioideuts of that trial and
d an actor in some of the most inport
. tint of them, usod to say that Mr.
0 Johuson's acquittal was attributed,
j not as many iupposed to the ability
and the eloquence of the distinguish.
ed counsel employed by him, but to
a the use of money. We nevcr under
stood that DI . Johnson himself
.urr:ished nay part of the sum paid,
altbou.,: h thu parties %Nwho tadvanoed it
unquoetionably counted upon person
at aevautagos to themselves to result
frorm Lie appreciation and gratitude
after the trial should bo over. Mr.
f Wendell's story was as follows :
Tho idea of saving Mr. Johnsoa
r had ben almost wholly relinquished
by hia fa lends I h is conv iction seemed
a foregone conluslon, and was amost
universally spoken of as certain, when
one Sunday, while Mr. Wendell was
Ssttug in one of the pliblic rooms at
Brown's hotel-since changed to the
letropolitari-ho was accosted by an
aequaintaheo, who asked : "Wendcll,
do you wan't to bet a hindred thou..
sand dollars thai. Johnson will be
contvitctd because if you do, I wit
tukn the bet."
Mr. Wendell said lie at once com..
l.rehiendod what 1he proposition
neica5 and after a little firther eon
vor.--ttivn requested a little timo in
nuh to maLte ip his mind, aind ap.
pointed a late hour in the same day
for auuther meeting with the party
who had made it.
"i flow around,'" continued Mr.
Vandell, " and A fter seeing several
pes sone, found tut, I could raiso $60,
000 ; bO when this man coino back
again I tsaid to hin, I will bet yott
"I don't want to bet $60,000,"
wa, the inrtantaneous reply, "I
ed to bet y ou $100,000 " if you
do not wish to take that) we will lot
the matter drop. . will bot that or
kiothing; no smaller tim.'
nodioll now perceived that the
,i' un was iniquestionably iii earnest,
..ad tbat if he took the het tho result
would be one of two things-Johnson
wo'.;ld o acquitted, or he would win
a hundred thousirid dollars. 'ie re
quested further titio, wlieh was ao
corded, with the understandipg Low
ever, that at the next interview the
aoney was to be put np or the nego
tiation was to be at an eInd.
Mr. Wendell knew where and to
whom to go to r-nie moiey for such a
purpose ; no man in lie m-uotry knew
better ; and although such a sudden
demand for so largc a eonm taxod his
energies scver- !y. lie sneceded in
gettingthe lmnoulit together within
the :nelimited. The terms of the het
were fully complie I with and the
money was put up.
.. Pesident Johnson, wt we all knotw
to be a historical f(ct, was acquittedl
but vory few persons in tho country
have hitherto understood how it, was
Mr. Wendell sid.that somo of the
money went to rjparters.which would
have been amonig the last to be sus
pected, whereas cortain Senatord
aainst wb'ra in upicion was most rife
never toiuched a dollar of the money.
Mr. Wendell also said that .they
ihad several moure votes reured to be
Jgiven in favor of acquittal in ease
they should bo req 'iied to accom..
iphibh thrat result; but if not needed
to acquit, then to be oast for convie
One of the most curious thiings
abouit the whwo transaction was the
maniner in which the money was paid
over after the acquittal had taken
pla;c.. It was not handed directliy
over trom otto of the parties to the
otrner, but wasH lost hU one to lthe othier
