benor Zamaoona, the Mexican Mlu
preaented hia letter of recall
Preaident, expressing hia
warmest thanks to the American peo
ple and Government for tbe kindness
shown to him, and continuing says :
'Tt has been my fortune tbat tbe pe
riod of my stay in Washington at
head ol tbe Mexican Legation baa
liven coincident with a great reciprocal
movement of approximation between
our two republics. When 1 landed in
this country as the Envoy of Mexico
tbe two banka of tbe Rio Grande shone
with tbe sinister glitter of arma, tbe
shallow fords of that river then served
more fur the p« «enge of smug glare, of
banditti, and of savages than aa a
route for international oommaroe. To
day two railroads, opened to an in
creasing trade, or os* our boundary
river, and the two peoples touch each
cher across, not by tbe points of their
bayonets but by firmly grasped hands.
Distrust and resentment baye disap
peared, tbe commercial exchanges of
tbe two countries have been doubled;
the surplus capital of this riob people
is overflowing tbe froutisr, and Mexico
gathers as tbe first fruits of ber doser
intimacy with her northern neighbors
the internal peace she eajoys, tbe
growing wisdom of her citiaens, a gen
eral ieeling of welfare, which inspires
aversions to revolts, tbe multiplica
tions iff useful enterprises aud tbe
brightness of the national prospects."
President Arthur replying, said it
was tbe constantly cherished purpose
of the people of the Uuited Stale* "to
omit no means of diape ling interna
tional distrusts aud placing the oom
mon relations of tbe two people ou en
enduring basis of friendship."

farme , residing near Woodsboro', in
this c unty, committed suicide tills
morning by hanging bimself to a rafter
In the garret of b s residence. He was
