Tug Country of the .Kavajois.
llriMs or .tows The Lesert, News
contains an account of mi e xe'litMi Ir
tlia Mormons, to t lie Southern part of
the Territory, among tli Navaioes.
They describe I lie ruin of the. towns!
and villages discovered on the St. John,
about 500 miles south. eat of the Salt
Lake Citjf';
The walls of many buildings are still
fMaiiding'entire, some of them three or
lour stories high, with the end of (he
led cedar jnisis et in the wall,' but
worn to a point at ' thei r f xtreruitiei.
Every building wis a fortification, built
In the strongest manner imaginable, and
in a style that the present age knew
nothing of; many of them still plainly
show the whole manner of structure,
nd even the marks oi the workmen's
tools.
From here we traveled ten miles,
with occasional ruins by the way, and
entered i Jeep canou with projecting
shelves of rock, and under these shelves
were numerous houses or fortifications.
The one we examined was divided into
twenty-four rooms, each nearly square,
and enclosing an areaol about oue
hundred and forty-four square feet. The
front will was-built up to the over
hanging cliff, which formed the roof,
and was curved and full of port-holes.
The stones were all squared and faced,
were of an equal thickness, and luid up
with joints broken in a workmanlike
manner. The only entrance we could
find was a hole about two feet square
and eighten inchea from the ground,
which is the usual size of all the doors.
From here to St. Jehu', river, a distance-
of ten miles, there were scatter
iug ruins; and from there, iu iwele
miles' northeast, we came to the head
of a canon,
All around the head of this canon,
and down on either side, as far as we
could see, were houses of every concei
vable form and size; and in place
wheie the soil w as sufficient, they were
over grown with sage and cedar, in ev
ery respect like that on the mountains
around. In the centre of this canon,
and near the head, was building six
teen or twenty feet square, four stories
high, and built upon a flat rock about
four feet, Iiighet than a level of the bed
of the cution. and but little broadei
than the buildiug; to '.his we could not
find an entrance, and, unliae all the
rest, it had no port holes. One large
building, which we entered, Hood on
the edge of the precipice, with its front
wall circular and flush with the bank,
which formej the back part inakiug the
ground plan of ihj bu.lding like a half
union.
There were no wiudows in the lower
story of an; building, and evcy entran
ce was mads as difficult u l hidden as
possible,. The door or hole into the
oue last mentioned was guarded by two
or thrre w 1 s of different angles ; thus
making a rrooked, narrow passage to
the door, and every part of this passage
was in full view of the perl holes of the
building, the front wall being lull ol
them, like pigeou holes, pdiu'ing in
eiery possible direction; they were not
more tliHt two inches in diameter on
ilia ouleiite, and were plastered smooth
cm the inside' with a kind of cement,
with which the stones are. luid and the
rooms plastered, and is as hard as stone.
The inside si range incut of all the
Louies was much I like, all having pott
holes in the partiion walls, ana very
small and obscure passage ways from
ue room to another, and from one 01
two liouses'into the mountain. Some
on 1 lie cliffs ubote were conceded with
thuse below.
We noticed there was no water ab
out there, and inquired of the lndiuns
how the former inhabitants could have
luanHg'd! They told us that they had
heard that a long time ago theie was
water running there. We asked them
who built those houses? They Smiling
ly shook their head and suit' that they
hud net er heard, but that surely some
body must have built tlu-m a tert lung
lime back.
