A Mammoth Cave.
In the interior part of New Mexico is a
mammoth cave but little known and but sel
dom visited by Americans; it is situated in
the southern part of the territory in a beautiful
ravine about three or four miles from the
ltio Bonlto. It was my good fortune to visit,
this wonderful cave in the month of Sept.,
1863, while on a scouting expedition for
Apache Indians in company with the famous
scout Kit Carson, and our old guide Sinor
Don Dieago of Alpasso, New Mexico, who
had often made this cave a refuge or hiding
place from the attack of hostile Indians. On
entering the cave we passed down an incline
of about one hundred feet, „hen on a level
and nearly southerly direction for about half
a mile, when we were obliged to crawl through
a small hole, hardly large enough to admit
one man at a time; we then emerged out into
a large room more than sixty feet square, and
about forty feet high. Here one of our men
discharged his revolver, the report was almost
deafening, causing a shower of stones and
gravel to fall all around us. Our guide said
this cave was three miles in length, however
we explored the main passage until we came
to a beautiful lake of water, when we were
obliged to retrace our steps, during our tour
of exploration we burned out two large can
dles. I think could this cave be fully explored
that there must be a passage found or an out
let through as I noticed a current of pure
fresh air passing through. It was the general
opinion of those with me that this is the
largest cave ever foun^ in America.
