In an editorial on beards in a late num ber of the New York Tribune, Horace Greeley concludes as follows : But we say to Young America in counting-houses and workshops, never touch your beards ( with a razor. Despise the dictates of i fashion, and let thehair of the face grow silky and soft, only trimmed by the scis sors. Your health will be improved;your teeth will be sounder; your liability to colds and bronchial and lung affections "will be sensibly diminished; your conven ience will be daily consulted; your manly! beauty no despicable thing, as it is the type of what ought to be the dower of j every man will be indefinitely increased, and the true and poetical contrast to fem inine loveliness be once more secured, which is impossible under the starved, Bcraped, wiry caricatures which shavel-. irjgs now present.

I was told that they had been murdered. You may perhaps, be able to imagine my feelings when I found myself thus bereaved and destitute in a land of strausers. My misfortune seemed ercat- or than I could bear, but I knew not that heavier trials were in store for me. Unable to continue my journey, I re turned to El Paso; where I remained till September 8, when I started once more for Texas with my three brothers-in-law, in company with a small party consisting of five Americans and one Mexican.

When absent from my bouse on the twclth day after my escape pome New Mexican traders passed by on their way to the Camanche settlements.
