In the oid'tihiM before Ifie mivl-nt hi
so tunuv railroads, no man vn nskrd for
his credentials here as to honestyv or
whether he was traveiluir under nn as
sumed name to exupc from punishment
deserved for crime? committed elsewhere,
hut was received us he represented him
self to be, and heartily welcomed. It
wa the most thoroughly Democratic
state of society of which I have ac
knowledge, lu tact I may ay It was Ar
cadian. Theohl heroes who had wrested
this glorious land Irom llexl-o were rest
ing from their tolls each having n patent
lora "le.iguo of land" granted to Its
founders by the Infant republic. They
had disbanded their little army niter the
decisive battle ol San .hicluto, uml had
scattered todlllcrcnt partsol'thc country,
and when one of Ilium found grazing
lands which suited him, he pitched Ills
tcut and laid claim to all the laud within
as many hours' ride ol It In each direc
tion us his fancy dictated. The next day
he would mount his po.iy and proceed to
look over his domain, tho extent of w hlch
depended upon tho rapidity with whlcl
his mustang got over the ground and his
accuracy in measuring time by tho sun, us
watches wcro almost ns unknown as the
surveyor's transit and chain. if ho
found any intruders (lor as .ouch ho
would regard them), who claimed
the laud Irom priority ol location,
they would settle amicably If they could
and one would move, If not. an appeal to
arms was made ami bullets took din
place of arguments. The survivor, alter
decently Interring tho remain of his foe,
held Iho title to the hlood-slalucd toil
until another rival appeared to dispute
it with him. To their credit, bo It said,
however, such scene were not frequent;
but the stories of the vendettas fought
between families, many of which have
become extinct, occupy a large place lu
the legends of the country. The land
was large and there was room for all ;
their wealth, the cattle and sheep
which accompanied them In their wan
derings in search of now homes, increased
rapidly a they were remote from mar
ket, and the trouhlo of getting
them there would scarcely repay
their owners for tlio trouble it coit them.
They however had their annual spring
"round up,' when' the calves were
branded ami had tho marks of their ow n
ers cut Into their cars ; and It wa under
stood that when a rancher was branding
his own, he would aUo brand the calves
with the cows beariiig Iho brand of Ids
iillilor, wiioprubabry did not lire with
in thirty miles of him, mid who was oil
in another direction, and would perlorin
a similar service for him. At a Mated
time they, would meet umi "suttle thrlr
books," as they called it. If a man up
peared upou the cene, who a adven
turous enough to uudertake to drive u
"bunch" of cattle to market hundreds
of miles away, oftcu through the
country of hostile Indians, his hon
esty was not questioned, but he
was supplied with the number he
wanted, and .without any guarantee as to
his honesty but their simple faith in
human nature, lie was bid God speed. If
begot through safely ho would settle
with his patron upon his ruturn. This
continued until railroads began to pene
trate thu Wqt, vrittcti brought them
nearer market, when a hot of unscrunu-
ions adventurers made their appearance,
who would get trusted with cattle, which
they would drive oil and forget tho little
formality of returning mid settling for.
This worked a revolution lu the manner
of handling eattlo, and mulled lu the
appointment of cattle and hide Iiimico-
tun, as described in n former letter; to be
found driving away cattle now lo which
you cannot establish your tltlo by a bill ol
ale, means death by hanging at the
hands of tho rangers, and the local pa
pers are tilled wllh notices dctci thing, by
tlio aid of rude wood tuts, brand to
which some herder lays claim ; a few of
these I copy below. After eiuinu rat
lug tho brands lo which he lays claims,
one man winds up his notice as follows

tion that Avery had been Indicted until
the trial began. Tlio other day I lead in
Iho lleraltt that some members ot the

edition of Gon. ltabcock was a couplr

that Henderson was a candidate ol tho

always, since the war, been a member of

some time airo, that I lirst cliarired ltab
cock with being lu complicity with the
whiskey ring. On the contrary, I went
to the editor of tho St. I.ouls paper with
which I am connected, remonstratlm?
against any charge against ltabcock or
inybooy else lor which conclusive nroof
was ant at hand, and 1 insisted e.-pccially
that no suggestion ol nny complicity or

the president Is that lie has irlvenhiscon-
tldence to a set of men who turned out to
be great rascals, and ho seems determin
ed not to withdraw that confidence until
they aro actually convicted and cut to
the penitecntiary. When Gen. McDon-
dd was appointed aupervisor of internal
revenue, my colleague, Mr. Drake, mid
myself, went to the treasury to protest
against itnot for any political reasons,
nor to favor any other candidate, but lie-
cause Gen. McDonald was known in St.
I. ohm an a despemto man. and we both
piedioled that the ninloinineiit would
certainly corrupt tho service there. Sim

A majority of the llemiblican party
thought wise not to make any nartv

so as to re'ouc the State from the con

when tlio Itepubllcan State convention

no cancer or anv other mortal dleae.
A blliidrolded man, sllhtly pricked lu
tho arm, lias fainted hud died from be
lieving that he was bleeding lo death.
Therefore, well prrsonx, to remain well,
should bo cheerful and happy; anil
sick persons should have their attention
driwn as much as possible from 'them
selves. It Is by their faith that men are
saved, and It Is by their faith that men
die. If, he wills not to die, bo ran often
I Ivo In spile ofdlscaso land II ho has little
or no attachment to life, he will slip
away as easily as a child will fall usleep.
Men live by their souls, and not by their
bodies. Their bodies havo no lire of them
Nelve; they nre only resources of life
tenements of their souls. Tho will has
much to do hi continuing tho physical
occupancy or giving It up.
