An office for tho encouragement of emigra tion to Colorado Territory, has been established in New York. ir. Edward Bliss, who has it in charge, writes to the New York Times, in the following language, of the progress and resources of the Territory. "What he says of early days there, may be read' with "profit in Arizona, es pecially the intimation that " for nearly two years after the discovery of gold in the valleys east of tho mountains, the miners met with in different succpes, and a general feelmcr of disap- A A ...... W pomiment prevailed; but tho peraavenng efforts of prospecting parties at length revealed the ex istence of numerous gold bearing quartz veins in the mountains, and a fresh impulse was given to mining enterprises " : Vitbin the past three or four months the at ention of New York and Boston capitalists has been directed to the gold mines of Colorado Ter ritory, and largo investments of money and machinery- have been made for the purpose of de veloping tne vast, mineral resources ot tftat r gion. go nttie is Known ol the weslth m the vanous mountain raoi?e3 ox Lolorado. and HO fnanifotd St 1 tr o r i'i it Ao jav thought a brief artiolft on th anbj&ct miijht nov oe ooi, oi ptaae ja mis otua3R3 oi iixo I'imee. It ia only five yoars wactpabiic attition was attracted to what is known as Owlorado Territo ry. ot nearlv two years after tho diicrory of gold in the valleys east ot tho mountains, the miners met with indifferent success, and a gene ral feeling of disappointment prevailed. But the persevering efforts of " prospecting " parties at length revealed the existence of numerous gold bearing qonrtz veins in the mountains, and a fresh impulse was given to mining enterprises. Stamp-mills and other mining machinery were brqught rapidly into use ; and from a yearly yield of only 54.0GO in gold in 1859, tho product has steadily increased to a yiold of 15,000,000 in 1,863. AU this, too, in'the face of serious troubles and annoyances growing out of the in experience of the pioneers, who were only ap prentices in the business of gold mining, and who could not Tor a long time discover a sure and economical process for saving the gold known to exist in the ores. But at length science and experiment have overcome thia difficulty, and the recent reports from Colorado givo warrant to the belief that the yield of 1864 will not bo less than 830,000,000 In tho opinion of Prof. Kent, of ths New York Assay Office, " Colorado will in five years rival California.1' The climato. of Colorado is mild and salubri ous, and tho record of mortality since its settle ment presents a. most favorable exhibit ot its honlthfulness. In an agricultural point, of view' our Territory possesses many advuutagea not common to mineral gions. The great plains and parks aro covered with si thrifty nutural growth of grass, and all the valleys and bottom lands are susceptible ot a tngh ana profitable state of cultivation. Already, numerous farms and ranches aro scattered through the Territory, and this branch of industry has been prosecuted with most remarkable results. The pastoral resources of Colorado aro second to no other country in tho wprld. Tho progress already made in tho settlement of. Colorado, is indeed marvellous. Tho city of Denver, situated on tho rlatto River, near tho base of tho mountains, contains to-day some soven thousand souls, and boasts of several fine churches, two theatres, and a university. Sub stantial brick blocks line the principal street, and thero is an air of prosperity and enterprise ap parent there, which wcnld do credit to any twenty years old city of tho Western States Other towns and settlements of tho Territory aro making rapid strides in size and population, and although this region is nearly seven hundred miles west of the Missouri Itiver, it presents to day all the, characteristics and phases of tif flourishing portions of tho Western States. But tho undeveloped and unsottlod portious of Colo rado ofibr great inducements for naw settlors, and labor is at present much noeded in tips mining rpgioQ-j. Wags .n tho mines are from 3 to $5 psr day. Everything n&ftet&ary for the comfort able subsistence of a large population cau easijy be obtained.' There is room and demand foronn hundred thousand more people than aro now iu tho Territory, and opportunities for rapid and sure accumulation of wealth are open thero which exist in no other rnining country in the world. OtJK KAIMtOA'JD INTERESTS, On the 30th of December last, our Territorial" Legislature passed a bill chartering the " Kan sas, New Mexico Arizona and California Rail road and Telegraph Company of . which the corporators are, A nastacio Sandoval. Henrv Cnn- nelly, H, S. Johnson. Ambrocio Armijo, Ceran rU. Yrain. Joseph Be&thnor. W. P. M. Arnv. Jose Manuel (.JallegoE, and L, B. Maxwell, all of Now Mexico; John Ni Uoodwin and Richard u. Mc.Cormick, of Auzo&a j John Evans, of Colorado ; CJov. Carney and 8. C Pomerov, of Kansas. It is contemplated that tho company wiil. with in tho time allowed by their charter, bemu work on their portion of the line which is to put us in -i .1 . .. rauroau communication witn tne Atlantic, and ultimately with the Pncific. Within our Terri tory we have all tho materials necessary for the construction of tho road, and it is to be honed that our capitalists will subscribe hhsrslh- for shares, in order to secure its speedy operation When one thousand shares are subscribd for, and one per centum paid thereon, the company will proceed to elect a Board of Directors, ant? devise ways and means for commcflciag4 work t as early a da? as Dossible.

We. have no doubt that citizens of Kansas, and Stifles farther eastward, will aid us in proportion to th disposition y?n manifest to help ourselves; n4, therefore, wo nrge it upon all our citizens to ke stock, according to their means. This county being so immediately interested in tho coniom- Hjatiou of tho Work, should take the lead m sub scribing for shares ; and one hundred of its in habitants could purchase ono Lhousahd shares. without, perceptably affecting their. financ, aat only a ,small sum .per share of the; purcltae money will bo required to bo paid' aVa first in stalment. . Tho times and places for opening sub'eerifftiott books for stock, have not vet bees detrioi by the corporators, but rrc presume th pnbU win shortly be mtormed ot them. acrtrj Arny, one of the corporators, and also a Director of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Hailrtw Company, and an energetic business maw, 1 bo on his to tho States, where he will, donbtUmr succeed in making satisfactory arrangen&tat to opouing subscription booka iu tho large, citiet. As to tho corporators of the Itaneas, Kent Mexico, Arizona and California Railroad tod Telegraph Company, it is uot necessary for us to advert- io. their, mdiviidnai : chuimctan but we will observo of them ojUictiveJf,. that tho corporators of no other eoia&aDV chartered here, or elsewhere, have lrfelrt cluims to the public confidence. However orft, or all of them, may bo the enbjects of primta piquo, that is no reason why tbo objecta of Ok organization of the company shonld be frutrati, and the fruition of tho benefits of a railroad und telegraph, for the pooplo, postponed indf finitely. Wo may differ, for instance, with Governor Goo nelly as to the exercise of tho Veto.Powrrft if his Excellency subscribes for ien,.nftjvr a hundred shares, ho will bo a first rate. mv in this respect ; or, if wo privately consider ant tiler individual a deadhead in politics otodety wo aro bound to accredit him according to hia fs'ier ality and services in favor of beneficial ?nteria e.
