Mazatxan, Mexico, Nov. 10, 1805.
Thin place is the landing port and commer
cial mart for this Stole (Binaloa,) and l)u
ixncp. It lias a population of from 10 to lor
000;sUuated upon the Gulf of California,
without pcarccly any harbor. All the Euro

State, consumed in the central portion and
raid in remote district, arc landed and Mid
here, and carried on mules throughout the
country ; it i a mode of transportation to
which the Mexicans have leen accustomed,
and nothing wins to change them. Wagons
arc too modern to lo ucd hy them. Sonic
of the mining companies use them for the
transjortation of their machinery, and a few
others are UBcd by foreigners. In traveling
from here to Durango, I have Been some as
fine agricultural land as I have ever Been
any where From the small patches the Kil
fccms rich and productive, even with Mexi
can cultivation. The average production of
tbo valleys I have paved through in going
from here to the mineral diHtricta in the
mountains of Durango, is said to be twenty
bushels of wheat, and from thirty to forty of
corn to one acre ; of these rich valleys, not
one acre in a hundred is in cultivation. If
the valleys were occupied by a population
from the United States, all would be cultiva
ted liko a garden, and nowhere would the
care and industry of a farmer meet bo rich a
The system of agriculture by the natives
is no wretchedly ba'dj tbat it is difficult to
form any correct opinion of the productive
ness of the rail, unless it be from the opera
tions of a small number of Americans (cit
zens of the United States,) most of whom
have devoted their principal attention to
cotton. And I do not think I have heard of
an instance among them tlianvas not a suc
cess. The plow in usiversal use among the Mex
icans is that used two Thousand years ago,
nothing more nor less than a wooden wedge
without a particle of iron attached to it.
The hoc is a wooden ftafl) with an iron spike
in the end. And another rcmarkablo fact
is, that the only animal used in plowing is
the ox ; a planter may have largo herds of
mules and horxes, still ho will only use his
oxen in the plow. If you ask why this is,
the only answer I can give, these pcojile
never change their habits, nor anything
else but their government. All the passion
for change which exists in other tteoplc, with
them is concentrated in political changes.
It is a peculiar characteristic, which has
done much to produce the present degra
ded condition of llio country. It is a re
markable fact there is not a railroad in the
country, with the exception of one partially
completed between Vera Cruz and the City
of Mexico, which owes its beginning to
English and American enterprise.
Constantly as the contrast between every
thing hero and in the United States is pre
sented, tbo feelings which arc excited are
not so much of pride in our superiority of
everything as sympathy for the wretched
condition of a country upon which a boun
tiful Providence has showered its blessing
with a more profuse hand than upon any
other upon the face of the earth.
"While in our cities and towns you hear the
busy hum of incessant industry, the whistle
oftho Fleam engine, here one is reminded of
"While other nations have been making
railroads, they have been making revolu
tions forty-rix of which they have had in
The export of these two States is nothing
but silver. Notwithstanding logwood, gutta
pcrcha, mahogany, roscwoodand lignuuivita
are indigenous, and some of them stand in im
mense loruhls, 1 nave yet to see where a stick
of cither has been cut for transportation. All
the tropical fruits, oranges, lemons, pine
apples, etc., grow here profusely, and of su
perior quality, none of which are ever sent
to a foreign market. Tho peach grows as
large and line as iu, anjpart of the world,
Mill all of that dried fruit which is used is
imported from the West Indies.
The people seem to have no idea of the
value oftho natural products ol the country,
and in scaking to them of the value of their
(liflcrcnl woods, tlioir notions are, they arc
only used for fire everywhere as here.
Jn passing the road from hereto Durango
you pass through a country inexpressibly
pictiircsouc and beautiful : yet tho ignorant.
idle and degraded population, and almost
absence of anvthiiiK like enterprise and im
provement, with a general appearance of
wilderness, is apt to produce leelmgs par
taking ol gloom and melancholy.
TImbc States are now under the entire
control of the French, they having driven
out all belligerents, and to their credit must
lie said, stopped tho many bands of robbers
which have heretofore infested thin country:
they have mado many bcncTicial changes,
but Ti t thcra ia much to do.
The universal sympathies and influence of
capitalists arc, anil have been from tho bc
cinnini;, with tho French. Most of tho
estates, mines and capital is in the hands of
foreigners Spaniards, Juiglish, uennans
nnd a few Americans, (tho Spaniards arc
much tho more numerous.) When asked
why it is they havo wished tho French
to kwcss tho country, tho answer from all
it: " AVo wish a Government ; have suffered
much by not having one; tho French bid
fair to give us one find." They further say
they have no partiality for the French over
other nations, but from them, under the cir
cumstances, they expect sooner a Govern
ment that will induce and protect emigrants,
who will devclopc the hidden wealth of the
country that would havo lain dormant tinder
the old Mexican rule, who, instead of en
couraging enterprise, placo hisurmouutablo
obstacles in its way. To illustrate, thev
refer you to their own State with a rich
soil and a climate adapted to everything
which grows out ol the earth, and possessing
every metal ed by man almost a wilder
ness so far as improvements are concerned.
1 have seen many negroes in Mexico, and
it is a mistaken idea that they enjoy a social
oouality even with tho Indian population.
There is no Kilitical distinction, but the
aristocracy of color is as great here as in anv
place I have ever seen. In no place have 1
seen a greater prido shown of no cross in
blood tlian is shown by the Castilian here.
The negro here is looked upon a little
lower than the lowest; tho same lazy, filthy
mid vicious creature they become" every
where when not held iu bondage. Bondage
or barbarism seems to lie their destiny a
destiny from which the Elhiojican race" has
furnished no exception in any country. The
only idea the free negro of Mexico has of
liberty is, exemption from labor and the
privilege to l vicious, idle and dishonest.
As to sentiments of liberty, and elevating
consciousness of cmtality, tho former thoy
arc incapable of and tho latter never did or
will exist among them. There is a line
which cannot hi iu.hm.h1 by any degree of
talent, virtue or accomplishments.
The greater of these, which may exist in
rare cases, and tho nearer their possessors
may approach this unsurpassable lurricr,
they are only the more miserable. This
maybe called prejudice; if it is, it exists
wherever the Caucasian race is found, and
nowhere is it stronger than in Mexico.
The mineral interest consists of iron, coj
pe r, tin and silver. None of the mines of
the former arc yet developed, nor will be
until tho latter is better dcvcloinxl and
more extensively worked, for many which
are known to be" rich arc lying idleand will
remain so till foreign capital develops them.
I learned Uion last in tho mineral district
of St. lKnias, or Guarissima, that the noted
Tecalota mine was not being re-ocned ; it
was the first discovered and is tho most ex
tensive in tho district. Trior to the war,
which drove the Spaniards from Uiecoun;
try, tills mine had been in litigation to a
short time before the breaking out of the
revolution, when it, as others, fell into tho
hands of the Indian Peons, slaves of former
proprietors, from which llicy extracted
large quantities of metal enough to rapport
hundreds of them and their families up to
tbo time a largo cave occurred, after which
it catno into the possession of the wealthy
Spanish gentleman, Don Juan Costilla do
Valle, where it has remained. 1 under
stand, but do not vouch for the correctness,
that lie has entered into an arrangement
with some American gentlemen, which will
foon unlock Its treasure.
The mines of litis district, St. Demas).ar$
not surpassed in richness ana extent by any
of tlni world. 'From tlicm millions havo
been exhumed. Here is more plainly mark
ed tl0 effect of revolution than in any placo
I liave visited in theso State. You mo rd.

in great numbers, marked plainly by old ac
q jeducta through solid rock of great length
lor conveying water to the works. Towns
that once contained, judging from the num
ber of old walls still standing, from five to
twenty thousand inhabitants, now have not
so many scarcely in them, all told, as thous
ands brought down to the present deplora
ble condition by what certainly nothing but
revolution, driving from them their proper
owners, and leaving them in the hands of
former slaves. May our country profit by
this timelr and sad experience of Mexico.
The molt of the mines that are now, and
being reopened, owe it to Ainerican .enter
prise. Among the nnmlicr in this district
arc two companies of your city, one from
California, and individuals. Tho latter aie
men generally of very limited means, de
pending largely ujon the ore left in the old
works alwve tlieir lxiUnms, for means to rc
open. In the lwttoms or all are large quan
tities of moist rock, thrown there by the
lazy and indolent peons after being deserted
by former owners, and all contain more or
There arc a number of instances where
tho old rubbish and water lias been re
moved, or the land was penetrated by a tun
nel striking lclow the old works, and in
every case large deposits of rich ore was the
result. The company from California is the
oldest in the district; they own one mine,
and eighteen months ago succeeded in com
pleting the removing of rubbish and water
from it by means of windlass and pinups,
findinz at the bottom a larcc load of rich
ore. Hut in their attempt at economy, their
means being limited, they purchased in San
Francisco very inferior machinery and a
pattern water-wheel, which proved insuffi
cient to drive their small mill . still they go
ahead, running but a part of their machi
nery at once, and arc shipping by each trip
of the steamer, which is once every thirty
five days, some bullion. The former super
intendent is now absent to procure proper
machinery, and their business is conducted
by a very" worthy trcntlcman. Mr. Farrell.
The other two companies arc known here
as the Durango Mining Company and the
ii jrura Oliver .Mining vyompanjoi j.icw
The first is an incorporation of larce ca
pital, owning mines of good and extensive
reputation, and conducted ny a nr. nice,
who is an intelligent gentleman, and no
doubt well fitted to fill the position of super
intendent, having mado for nimscll quite a
reputation as a mining engineer in Nevada
and California. They arc opening their
mines by driving tunnels, none of which arc
yet completed ; out they have every evi
dence of large yields so soon as they arc.
The La Arbra Company, tho last to com
mence, were certainly the most fortunate in
their purchases'. I was their iruest for sev
eral days, will remember the kindness of
all the gentlemen there, and particularly
Gen. Barthalon, their accomplished and
gentlemanly general superintendent. I was
shown through their works.
Their hacienda, consisting of Mexican
works, is the largest and best I have seen. A
portion of their mines were purchased of a
Spiuiard, who afterward offered them twen
ty thousand dollars to have the property re
turned. Three of their mines arc opened by
adits upon the ledges. In going into one of
them, 1 saw largo piles ol ore at the en
trance; saw it piled on all sides in the mine
iu the ledge, overhead and underfoot, for
three hundred feet, the length of the adit.
Their other two mines I visited was not at
the time being worked, but in them 1 saw
large quantities of ore fast in the lodes ready
for the miner. 1 was told the work in them
would soon lie commenced, as soon as that on
n projected tunnel, which would have to bo
driven 400 feet to reach the ledge of the old
and much-noUd La Arbra mine, from which'
tho company derives their name, which is
the largest and most valuable of their mines.
Thev call it the Mather.
The ledges were from three to fifteen feet
wide requiring no timbers but for scaffold
ing. The walls, after the ore had been ex
tracted, were smooth and self-supporting
granite. The average yield of the ore is one
hundred and twenty-live dollars per tun
(2,0001b) while tho selected is much richer,
going as high as two thousand dollars. This
company have now on the way to their
works the most approved and modern ma
chincry( and expect to havo it in operation
by the hint of April.
I have omitted to name another mining
company in the district. The Gaudalupa
Company of San Francisco who aro working
a mine by that name, it is one of the oldest,
and, no doubt, the richest and most exten
sive of the Gurionay District. They, a short
time since, completed a tunnel into the ledge
or vein, finding large quantities of ore they
have yet no machinery for reducing. This
company is superintended by Mr. John
Corell, a scientific miner arid accomplished
mechanic, who has spent much time in the
quartz mines of California, and several years
iu Peru, South America. He thinks the
mines of Mexico are the most valuable he
has ever worked. Mexico has a bright fu
ture, but will require a different race from
her present natives to make her so., The
Empire, for such it is, will Foon be numbered
one of the wealthy nations of the world, if
properly governed. J hope J give noollenscm
saying Empire, for such is certainly the caso
at present, and will remain so, unless there
be interference on the part of the United
Suites, tho probabilities of which you arc
the better able to advise your readers.

From tho Chicago Times.
If it be true that posthumous honors in
any wise reflect tho services and character of
him to whom they arc paid, tho fact should
compel tho nicest propriety in their observ
ance. It is not creditable that oncgenerally
esteemed to be a good man, and who had
been honored by iiis countrymen, with the
most exalted and responsible station within
their gift, should be shamed by tho selec
tion, as his eulogist, in the national capitol
and before the representatives of the people,
of a person who has never acquired a. repu
tation as an orator, and whose name is
stained bv oppressions and criminalities that
have made it hateful to all but bitterly nre-
judiccd partisans in the political organiza-
iiou oi which ue is a mcmucr. ine true
friends of Mr. Lincoln should seek to throw
anund his memory something more honor
able than the reputation of a partisan presi
dent. It is very proper that the republican
party should direct the manner in which the
national authorities shall express their sense
of the public loss sustained in his death. It
is equally proper, however, that its direction
should be of a character intimating that he
is mourned as the president of tho nation
and not as the head of a political party which
is in a minority in the nation. The selec
tion of one of themost hitler and virulent, as
well as one of the mot treacherous and un
scrupulous politicians of the country " to de
liver an address uikih the life and character"
of Mr. Lincoln, before the audience to which
Wc have referred, may justly bo considered
as a wish on tho part of those making the
selection that the extreme and vcrv often
unwarranted partisan action of Mr. Lincoln1
shall be the chief theme of eulogy.
