Xh letter of Cardenal to Callejos.
We publish to-ijay; this remarkable
letter, in order to furnish to our rea lora
further evidence, if any .vero necileil, of
the fact that Gallegos. Cardenas, and a
few oilier disaffected prints f Now Mcx
ieo.'are now the head and leader of what
lia laterly taken tho name of tho ''Doni
wtic Organization." , It is in reality.
everyone must lv this timo, know,
nothing , more nor ios than an Anti
Church faction, existing and working un
dor tho name of Democracy. 1
.It will be oeen on ruling this famous
letter, written from London by "aire
Cardenas to Padre Gallego, that these
tA men have long entertained ideas an 1
and feelings adverse to their relion, an 1
that (he former no longer takes any trouh
la to conceal hid hostility to the Catliolie
Cltnreh., , , , . . ' ;
.On the contrarv he boldly renntwea
the Roman Catholic Religion, and do-
ciares himself to 1k a Protestant
We would nut assist padre Cardenas in
g ying publicity to Ids suspicious npos
lacy, if he were not plainly one of that
faction atti-mptinii to maku tho breach
wider among the faithful.
, I'adre Cardenas has changed his reli
gion, but the change has neither been i
gain to Protestantism nor a bus to Ca
tholicism. , The same remark will heap
plicablc to padre Gallegos win n ever In
ia ready to publish to the woild his coir
version to Protestantism as pudre Carde
nas has dono.
. We would lx mora lenient with padre
Cardenas if we did not believe that In
hat added falsehood to bis other vices
Tie asser'i in his letter that he has seen
the I'ope, and has been reinstated by
him in the enjoyment of all his former
eelesiastical privileges. Now, this is
what we believe to be a barefaced falsi',
hood, as it is evident that the I'ope would
not reinstate a man who has not 'lie con
fidence of hia Bishop, whose business i?
is to remove unworthy and vicious men
from the ministry. If howevo, padre
Cardenas, on his arrival in New Mexico,
can convince Bishop I.ainy of the truth
of what he has asscrte I in his letter, then
we promise to withdraw the charge we
have made "against him. We publish
this letter of pad n'' Cardenas, in which
he renounces his allegiance to the Church
of Rome, also to confirm tho truth of
what we have heretofore said about Gal
legos, and to show our readers w hat bad
company tint man is in who now asks the
people of Jiew Mexico to honor linn a
hove every other person in New Mexico,
by tending him to tho Congress of tho
United States
We are fully satisfied that if the people
of New Mexico were thoroughly acquain
ted with the character of Gallegos be
would be about the last man in the T rf
ritory whom they would consider tit to
lie honored with the charge of their in
tenida in Congress.
The nnworthey manner in which he
lias discharged the dnlies of a priest
ought to be enough to bring down upon
him the contempt of all good chiistans;
and we were alxmt to say. the unfaithful
manner in which ho met his (nditieal ob
ligations, wheu elected toa seat in the
Legislature last winter, should bo en
ongh to bring upon him the suspieion and
aversion of every patriotic citizen.
i But so far from discluirging tlmso du
ties even in a bad manner, what is worse
than all he did not attempt to diseliar;
them at all. We sniioso that from this
forward he and Cardenas will devote
their public energies to the cause of An-
li-Christ, and Democracy
if tho talent of Gallegos cannot render
fHittcr service to IKniocracy than thev
have rendered' to Christianity, not even j
tho ''Trim Democrats" of Santa Fu can
jind cause to n-joico at his conversion to
their party. The truth is, th -y have as
little grounds for faith in Galieg is' con
Yursint, to Democracy, as wo have for
i'onfidoncu in that of Cardenas to Protes
tantism. Neither being worth th-namu

We cannot see how any man who loves

has justly driven from the Church.

Bishop. Who is there that can bring

Colonel STansfield; Inspector General
This officer, who arrived from the
States in company with Gen. Garlan I,
after hav'ng inspected the posts at Fort
Union. Fort Massachusetts, and Canton
ment Burgwin. passed through this city,
and inspectud the troops stationed here,
this week on his wav below.
Colonel Mansfield has but recently re
ceived tho commission of Inspector Gih
eral, in place of Colonel MeCall. who will
be rccolleeteil by most of our readers as
having been in this department on duty
in lNSO, and who has since resiirned.
Col. Mansfield was formerly an offi-erof
the Kngineer Corps, and well an I favor
ably known throughout tho (imintry for
his extensive and valuable scientific at
tainments, and his great knowledge of
the internal resources, ami the means of
making them available, of our country.
At the battle of Monterey he distinguish
ed himself highly by his cool and accu
rate reconnoissanee of the enemy's posi
tions, in tho cour e of which be was se
verely wounded in the leg.
The Colonel seems to be giving to the
military affairs of this department a most
thorough investigation, an 1 we antiei
pato no little benefit to all parties from
li's tour of inspection. And as w are
given to understand that his inquiries
and examinations aro not confined to
mero technicalities, but extend to every
thing in which the economy a3 well as
tho efficiency of the service is concerned.
We trust that he will take into serious
consideration tho plan which was par
tinlly adoptw here with so much success
a few years since, wo mean that of sup
plying the troops as far as practicable,
from this Territory.
Should proper inducements be hell out,
wo venture to predict that withm two
years from this date, every single item of
the soldier's regular ration, with the ex
ception of sugar, cotTee, and rice, could
bo furnished in this Territory, and at a
saving to tho General Government of
from twenty-five to seventy-five per cent.',
in some articles even greater. V hen we
tako into, consideration that tho fiehjM
n'one (in a barrel of pork, from Fort
LcavenWorth to this point, is from $3n
no to 35 DO, this statement will not
seem exagerated.
This is tho kind of "economy" we
would liko to seo practiced, by which,
while money is saved to the Government,
the industrial lesourees of our Territory
aro fostered and encouraged.
After digging tho foundation for this
building, an I making other prepcrations
