THE MINES OF NEW MEXICO. Their Richness Described by one Who Knows Whereof be Speaks A Fleas ant Climate All tbe Tear Round. In the Heart et the Reckies. Correspondence of the IxTaxterxcntt. MexTfizuiu, Colerado, July 13, 1880, Six months age the gentle zephyrs of Lancaster played through our curling locks and ever the Etruscan finish of our smiling frontispiece as we steed hat doffed in adieu te boyhood friends and Westward bound. In what direction the cunning hand of chance might box the dial of the compass was matter of but little moment ; for strong was the yeufliful faith born of Munro's biblical essays, and wild the longing te fraternize or break crust with the untamed savage, noblest chum of garret dreams and fancies. Sad te relate, all prof fered advances in this direction have been received with a chilling indifferentism that speaks volumes for the domestic ukase woven by Carl Schurz ct al. ever these seasoned off-sheets of hill and dale. We have learned te bid fancy back te its home in the realm of thought, for the whiz of the tomahawk and war-whoop are heard no mere ; but often may be seen through the charming twilight the kid-gloved 0u- ray,clad in 'Mean and slippered pantaloon," chanting the sweet refrain " Baby Mine," te the awakening accompaniment of en thusiastic papoeso. " Ilacc elim memin memin isse juvabit." Montezuma by some vulgarly styled civilization's annex is a mining camp of growing prominence, situated 10, 500 feet above the level of the sea, in the very heart of the Recky mountains. Flanked en every aide by mountains rising thousands of feet higher, whose sides te the very topmost crag are ribbed with sil ver in enormous quantities, watered by one little stream coursing silently along, it presents a picture of rugged grandeur. Bustling, wide-awake Denver is eighty miles distant and the click ef the telegraphic battery and the puffing of the steam engine close, with Georgetown nestling snugly at the feet of the range. This place, remarkable as the nucleus of true flssure silver bearing veins, ewes its social status te the exotics transplanted from our own com monwealth. Twe of Lancaster's fairest and brightest daughters have reigned here with despotic sway, While Pittsburgh has furnished it with the nester of the Colerado bar, and ene of nature's noble men. There arc many objects of interest lying en route between Denver and our camp, which owing chiefly te the wild but picturesque scenery encircling them, must awaken feelings of awe even in the blase traveler. Space forbids mere than the mention of the most prominent, argentine pass, 13,100 feet above Bca level, from which the rising smoke of every camp within a radius of 100 miles can be traced. Stand ing here upon a clear day can be seen the Kansas plains stretching far te the eant while te the westward rise the snowy peaks Pike and Gray, covered with black and rugged rocks flecked with patches of snow and tufted here and there with -a few scattering and stunted pines. Hew sublime the feelings awakened in the poetic soul while contemplating at times the rain drop as it falls from the heavens above, divides and slowly trickles away te the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. By an almost perpendicular descent of 2,500 feet from this summit the feet of the gulch is reached, inhaling and exhaling made bare possibilities, and the hepe of reaching our camp, six miles distant, a consummation devoutly te be wished. Would that your quill-driving correspondent wero gifted with a Ruskin's pen te paint in glowing colors the facades and turreted cabins, CxlO and a dozen told, of Montezuma, as they rise gnome-like through the evening gleaming, or trace the serpentine grace of its ene winding avenue strentr in the loca tion certificates of its uprising stumps. But the fear of striking a bonanza has huuglike the sword of Damocles ever our palsied dreams for the past few weeks, and sand carbonates have been running in quantities of 10 te 12 quarts (?) through our quiet throbbing veins. Thus literary work has been discounted, but through the cress cuts, adits and winzes of these mental aberrations, there has always been clearly distinct the features of the two prominent institutions gracing the pages of this camp's history. One is an oleo margarine shop, wherein are dispensed all the necessaries, and ergo luxuries, of life that go te taper off the rotundity of our rollicking Falstafls who often perforce "cat the air premise crammed." An en terprising lord and master chuckles grimly ever the spruce shelves that display the vegetable plucked lrem mother earth and canned barely within the statutory limita tion, the lactic fluid condensed and patent ed, in fine an indiscriminate collection of trip-hammers, molasses kegs nnd ante ante deminal sweetmeats; all labeled tag, rag and bob-tail ; and ever all there swings with pendulum-like regularity the sugges tive sign : "In Ged wc trust, all ethers cash." The ether institution is a dispensary of lightning, "Taranteler," and home of green cloth experts. Here the varying finances of the nation, in the shape of high and low ball polka and keno, are discussed with occasional entrees of shot-gun science and quick exchange of mining compli ments. When evening grows apace the rugged prospector slouches in from the hills, carefully nursing all his stock-in-hand pick and shovel and anxious te lave his wearied brew in Bacchanalian orgies. He is the typical character with heart of geld under a rough uncouth ex terior with that pardonable amount of braggadecia which is the earmark of his class. Since the days of "49" he has been wandering ever every feet of min eral soil en the Western continent, working with strong arm and brave heart under the sweltering sun and through almost impassable barriers of ice and snow, with hardly ever a red in sight. " Compared with his, the task of cleaning the Augean stables was but the ante-breakfast chore," and yet squatting comfortably down, he will pic ture, with the rough eloquence born of his noble simplicity the little home and smiling sweetheart waiting for him" in the far East. Of course the bully and brag gart strolls along occasionally armed cap-a-pie and ready te annihilate any tender-feet blossom that dare sprout 'neath his blast ing glance. As illustrative, however, of his staying powers the following actual oc ec curence may be mentioned : An itinerant photographer believing that his fame would be perpetuated in the reproduction Of Montezuma upon his camera, unfolded and proceeded te work. A strapping six footer with proper accoutrements and quantum of benzine en beard, ensconced himself upon the most preminent object within reach, a bcer barrel, and yelled "fire away." A wag, suiting the action te the word, let go a twin barrel, and the earth rese with sudden ferce te meet our here. Jumping te his feet like an untamed Piute he reared, "I'm the war horse of these hills, the click of a six-shooter is music te my ear, a bewic knife is my leek ing-glass, " seeing something glisten ing in the sun " but a shotgun lets me out. Fact this, of as stern and stiff a mould as ever fell from the lips of Themas Gradgrind. Much skepticism has been here tofore expressed as te the quantity andvalue of the mineral ribbing our hills, but lately an Obcren has touched their blear eyes with the magic flower, and the mountains resound with the sturdy strokes of grub-staked pioneers. Many rich strikes are reported, sales negotiated, and alto gether such a air of activity prevails as nourishes the hope that a client will yet darken the threshold of our deer. But a fuller explanation will be forthcoming in our next letter, if the circulation of the INTELLIGENCE! should survive this. An incxhaustlble font of consolation is left the inhabitants (some 200) constant ly bubbling ever, refreshing the weary and making the faint heart strong. Net one of the gender known as Frailty graces our camp, net nc lene, lern female net one item of gossip. Who can deny that the very Utopia of El Dorados has been reached. Therefore no goddess of "Ceres" floats through the culinary department, and each maa's tenure of the morrow's baeen is obtained by donning the apron and pitching in. Reader, have you ever steed ever the wash-beard watching the little spceks disappear one by ene by ferce of attrition while the glimmer from the 'moonlight sleeping en yonder bank" wrapped you in a glorious hale and the notes of the dulcet-toned Jack rese with plaintive swectuess and floated away upon the azure air? " If music be the feed of love," bray en,swcet Jack, bray en. I don't knew that this can be found in Ilorace Grcely's category of reasons for West ern migration, but it should be for it is " facile princcps." At least such has been our experience eliminated from six months' "batching ;" six months that seem te have resolved themselves in a eycle during which net even for the moment has our mental lance forsworn allegiance te the memory of ye olden days. Through the curling smoke of the camp fires without, through towering mountains and passes, through the dry nnd arid plains, through every step of the 3,000 miles separating us from home, imagination leads a maddening pace until it settles us, snug and comfort able, by the cheerful hcarth-side in the sun shine of loving friends, who " let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round and welcome peaceful evening in." Hew pleasant thus te wear the golden threads of fancy, te lift the curtain veiling behind it the " ten der grace of a day that H dead," te touch the chord awakening memories which alene with dim declining years ask no re turn for passion's wayward birth. Te but as I live, pard(a Western patronymic) wipes away the chloride of sodium fast lodging in the furrows of a certain bronzed phiz, and bids me wind up with a heart felt " geed night." M. Betre. New Mexico. Dr. W.T. Mtrachan en the Blch Mining Prospects. Albuquerque, N. M., July 12, 1880. Dit. S. S. Rathven, Lancaster, Pa. My Dear Sir : I have received your es. teemed favor of the 2d instant, and infer from its contents you desire reliable infor mation concerning our mining prospects vicinity, etc., etc. In reply I beg leave te say that nn extended personal acquaint ance with the mining regions of the terri tory and a knowledge of similar districts in ether localities outside of New Mexico gained from reports of persons new here who have worked in the mines elsewhere induces the belief that this district, the Sandia and Manzano, far surpasses them all in mineral richness. The extent of this mineral-bearing district is about fif teen miles square, and while it has net been by any means prospected as it should have been, shows within its limits mines tha run high in precious metal. The Star mine, for instance, which has been ejpened te a depth of but thirty feet, shows by assay 128 te $161 in geld. The assay of 128 was made from ere taken from six dif ferent places in the shaft and is consid ered by ail who knew the mine a true average teat of its real Value par ten. On this same vein are two ether shafts which show in pyrites of copper an aver age of thirteen per centum of copper and eight ounces of silver ere per ten. There are six ether locations in the district in which the Star mine is located which show equally geed. Anether thing, the veins are net mere streaks of pay ere, but their width is almost marvelous, that of the Star above referred te being fully thirty- five feet wide between wall rocks. This in itself makes the mines extraordinarily valuable, for while in some sections the pay streak of true vein is only a few inches wide, here they run from thirty te forty feet from side te side. North of the dis trict above described ether mines have re cently been discovered, which premiso te be very valuable in silver. They are only about four miles north, and like the Sandia and Manzanas have in the immediate vL einity an abundance of both timber and pure soft water.In this special neighborhood I knew of only seven locations having, as yet, been made, as the parties who first discovered it have been keeping it quiet until they and their friends could have the first cheice of locations. Frem what I knew of the district and its formation I am positive the best locations have been overlooked, and if my interests in ether localities did net occupy all my time and attention, I would seen acquire property there. As te our climate, none can be hotter suited te min ing operations than this ; for here we work all the year round in both winter and summer and find no inconvenience. As you knew, I am far from being a robust man, and yet during the whele of last winter, I lest only two days from mining by reason of inclement weather. We suffer neither the extreme of heat nor cold, but enjoy an agreeable temperature all the year round, If your son should decide te ceme here, or any of your friends visit Albuquerque, I would take great pleasure in showing these mines, and as they are located only some fourteen te eighteen miles from this place, the journey, lying through a very pictures que country, would be mere like a holiday jaunt than a visit te a mining camp. In looking ever what I have written concern ing the newly discovered silver district, I find I emitted te state that the average taken from top rock, or the exposed parts of the vein, shows a value of from four te one hundred nnd seventy ounces in silver. If you desire te use this letter for publi cation, you are at liberty te use my name as authority for the several statements made. Very rcspcetfully, W. T. Straciias. BOOKS AJiJt HTATIONEItY.
