Special Correspondence to TbeBullettn:
Puebix), Colo. April 20, 1884. From
Lai Vesa our route took us to La Junta
the junction of the road to Denver m
Pueblo, at Pueblo tbe narrow gauge can
takeg one flying westward over tbe grand
Veto Pas, the manificient scenery is be
yond be power of tongue or pen to describe
On, on, through ralleys and over moun
tains until Duraogo is reached, from here
pack animals are brought into requisition
that a trip of exploration to the ruins of the
ancient clifif dwellers may be made. Won
der of wonders! more puzzling than the
ancient foot prints of buman habitation, at
some remote period, in the Land of the
Nile or of the Euphrates.
Here in this south western corner of Co
lorado may be found pet tery, stone axes
cord, beans and many other eridences of a
semi-civilized race. On the sides of the
lagged terraced mountains and in the open
canyons there are picturesque rains and re
mains of towns. Far uo among tbe cliffs
are clusters of stone houses, some of which
are of large dimensions, containing a num
ber of rooms; some of tbe walls of solid
masonary and archways are still in a good
state of preservation, even tbe plastering, as
hard as the rock itself, infplaceB yet re
mains. In digging among the debris large
earthen vessels with hewn stone lids, were
found; also rush mattings and tissue manu
factured from the bark of trees. Hewn
steps lead from the valley far up to the
bouses that are perched upon the shelving
rock cliffs. Some of tbe buildings give ev
idence of Are having been in use in them
There is evidence that some of thone
buildings were in size equal to any in the
United States, some having wings one hun
dred and thirty-five feet in length and court
walls two to three hundred feet in length.
It wis estimated that one wall, "running
iround three sides of the building nine
hundred yid thirty-five feet in length and
forty feet in height there were more than
two million pieces of stone for the outer sur
face of the outer wall alone. This surface
multiplied by the stones of the interior tran-ver-ie
lines of masonary, would give a total
of thirty million pieces in three hundred
and fifteen thousand cubic feet of wall
These millions of pieces had to be quarried
and put in position; the timbers were
brought from a great distance; and Jcensid
ering the vastness of tbe work and amount
of labor and time that must have bees J ex
pended, these buildings may well be com
pared to tbe most famous works ot what is
so wrongly called tbe old world.
Among the caves of tbe Rio de Cbelly
were found some of tbe most beautifully
tinted arrow heads ever discovered, also
numbers of large earthen jars of oval design.
In a large three story house were found
many instruments of domestic use, present
ing the stone age. Among them were large
grindstones and hammers. The walls, were
plastered with cement of stucco-like finish.
That it was spread on the walls by buman
hands, is evident from the marks of the
pres of the skin to be found on the surface.
Occasionally the whole imprint of the hand
has been left; one woman's slender fingers
are thus preserved for the people of the nine
As to the date of those erections but little
can be determined at present. The Moqui
towns are now in precisely the same state
of preservation aa they were when described
by the invading Spaniards nearly four hun
dred years ago. Assuming the Moquis to
be lineal descendants of the cliff-dwellers,
how vast a time tbe old canyon castles must
have been deserted when even the Moquis
have no knowledge of the grand homes of
their ancestors 1 Regarding the age of the
Pueblos, they were said by Coronado at the
time of the conquest to look vtry
old. Castcnado records that the
inhabitants told him that the Pueblos were
older than the memory ot seven hundred
years. That these ruins were known to
the Spanish Invadors we have proof in the
journal of Den Antonia de Olermin, written
in 1561, where mention is made eighty
leagues distant from their camp there were
Casas Orandas. Gallatin speaks of them
end ascribes them to the "Azteques." Per
haps time and more extended research may
re-open the history of these people who
have been swept away from their grand
cities, leaving nothing but the stony walls
of their houses and castles to tell the tale
of their Pre-Columbia greatness. But this
we know that these and other tokens tell
us that in reality America is tbe old world
and that thousand f years ago races
flourished here in a high state of barbaric
Durango is a place of considerable trade
for miners, stock men and ranchmen.
Like all towns in these western mountain
distracts, there are all grades of society
good, bad and indifferent.
Pueblo is growing at a marvelous rate
new buildings are uoing up all around.
Truoly, it is coming to the front as the
Pittsburg of Colorado. Iron furances,
smelters, steel works, nail works, rolling
mills and various other enterprises are in
a flourishing condition, It is also quite a
railroad center. Capitalists from Pa. and
othern eastern states are coming here to in
vest large sums of money and build up the
city. Iron, coal, gold, silver and oil are all
n close proximity, making success in trade
and manufactures doubly Bure. There are
two wells from which valuable mineral
water flows continually. The city for many
yes rs had a very unsavory reputation as to
tbe character of the class of people who
were found here, but of late there is a
marked improvements in this respect, law
and order is being more the rule now than
the exception, a fair and prosperous future
awaits the city, the second in the state in
point of importance. J. 8. F.
The Song of the Ri'owu Thrush.
We may be able to account, in part
at least, for the disappointment which
an inexperienced observer meets with
when, fresh from tho perusal of (for ex
ample) tho thirteenth chapter of Dar
win's Descent of Man, he goes into the
woods to look about for himself. Ho
expects to find hero and there two or
three songsters, each in turn doing his
utmost to surpass tho brilliancy anil
power of tho other's music; while a
feminine auditor sits in full view, pre
paring to render her verdict, aud re
ward the successful competitor with
her own precious self. This would bo
a pretty picture. Unfortunately, it is
looked for in vain. The two or thrco
singers may be found, likely enough;
but the female, if she be indeed within
hearing, is modestly hiding away some
where in tho bushes, and our student
is none the wiser. Let him watch as
long as ho please, he will hardly seo
the prize awarded.
Nevertheless ho need not feel that
his time has been wasted. lie certain
ly will not, if he be one who loves mu
sic; for birds like all true artists, can
do their best only on great occasions.
Our brown thrush, for instance, is a
magnificent singer, albeit he is not of
the Dest school, being too "sensational"
to suit the most exacting case. His
song is a great improvisation: a good
deal jumbled, to be sure, and without
any recognizable form or themo; and
yet, like a Liszt rhapsody, it perfectly
answers its purpose, that is, it gives
the performer full scope to show what
he can do with his instrument. You
may laugh a little if you like, at au
occasional grotesque or overwrought
passage, but unless you are well used
to it you will surely be astonished.
Such power and range of voice; such
startling transitions; such endless va
riety! And withal such boundless en
thusiasm and incredible endurance!
Considered as pure music, one strain of
the hermit thrush is to my mind worth
the whole of it; just as a single move
ment of Beethoven's is better than a
world of Liszt transcriptions, but in
its own way it is unsurpassable.
jj, Still, though this is a meagre and
'quite unexaggerated account of the or
dinary song of tho brown thrush, I
have discovered that even he can be
outdone by himself. Ono morning in
early Mav I came upon three birds of
this species, all sinking at once, in a
kind of jealous frenzy. As they sang
they continually shifted from treo to
tree, and one in particular (the one
that was nearest to where I stood)
could hardly bo quiet a moment.
Once he sang with full power while on
the ground (or close to it, for he was
just then behind a low bush), after
which he mounted to tho very tip of a
tall pine, which bent beneath his
weight In the midst of the hurly-burly
one of the trio suddenly sounded the
whip-poor-will's call twice, an abso
lutely perfect reproduction.
The significance of all this sound and
fury; what the prizo was, if any, and
who obtained it, this another can con
jecture as well as myself. I know no
more than old Kaspar:
"'Why thin I can not toll,' said he,
But t was a famous victory,' "
As I turned to come away, tho con
test all at once ceased, and tho silenco
of the woods, or what seemed like si
lence, was really impressive. The
chewinks and field sparrows wero sing
ing, but it was like the music of a vil
lage singer after Patti; or, to make the
comparison less unjust, like the Pas
toral Symphony ot Handel after a
Wagner tempest. Bradford Torrcy in
A Story of Talleyrand.
Gen. W. C. Preston, of Kentucky, is
stopping in tho city and will remain
several days. In a conversation about
Alexander Hamilton, yesterday, he
told the following story of Talleyrand,
the great French diplomat, who, to
save Lis neck from tho guillotine, was
forced to leave France, aud he becanio
an exile to the United States. "This,"
said Gen. Preston, "was in 1794 and
1795, when he spent a portion of his
time near Albany, N. Y., where ho re
sided with Count La Tour du Pin, an
other French exile, who, with his ac
complished wife, was concealed for six
terrible weeks in Bordeaux, during the
bloody atrocities of Tallien. Ho ar
rived in Boston with two trunks full of
liue towels, tho only property they bad
saved from the wreck of a largo estate.
Volney, tho traveler, was also a mem
ber of tho same family, and they sold
butter and eggs in Albany to cko out a
living. Talleyrand returned to Franco
on tho first change of government, and
for many years, as is well known
swayed a great political intlucuoo there.
Soon after his return to Paris he wag
asked what were the most notable
things he saw in America. "The most
wonderful thing 1 saw," said Talley
rand, "was tho great Alexander Ham
ilton crossing Broadway in the mud,
with three big law books uuder his
arm, going into court to arguo a case."

first ; at least, the officers of the respective

matters. The owners of tbe Shreveport

it was finally decided that the Morgan was
