SEW MEXICO AS IT IS. XI. THE l.IFE OF THE TOOB. Every community has Hs poor people who, laboring early and late wilh the best will to better their condition, are always haunted with the primitive malediction of "Cu.rt.ed is the ground for thy sake; in sor row shall thou eat oí it rll ihe days of thy life," and we deem it therefore unnecessary to go into a specific explanation of the dif ferent ways, in general, how the poor cf New Mexico raake their living. Almost any body knows the toil and labor of a "bull whacker," across the plains; the habit of late to bed and early to rise of a farm laborer; the servility of the errant boy and "flunky" in general; but lew, even of the Great South West, and fewer of those living east of the Missouri valley, have an idea of the interesting, dare-devil-life of Ihe New Mexico goat and SHEEP HERDER, OR COW-BOY. As soon as the child is big enough to handle a sling he is put to woik herdirg the goats and sheep around the village from about the middle of April until the harvest is gathered in, to keep the animals out of the fields, because there are but few places in this Territory where fence laws are in oper aiion. Having reached the age of about ten years he leave home, in company with his fHther, or some other relative, to attend to the wants of the herders during the lamb in sea.son, and if considered active and trustworthy enough, is thtn left with the mayordomo of a large flock to adopt the life of a berJer. For at least one whole summer season, unless forced to retire on account of sickness, he will see no other hoiiiie than tho one he constructs for him self out. of limbs of evergreens, every few days, us soon as the rutige it changed. A few sheepkir.s serve as a mattress; a home spun blanket as covering during the night or a rainstorm; the camp fire is his candle, the firmament his roof, the wide prairie his home. If be serves a liberal or well-to-do amo, he mtiy get once in a while meat or coffee; if herding for poor beginners he will have to content himself with thin mush atole for hie morning beveraga , beansoup for dinner and thick mush chaquehui for supper. Is it to be wondered that he grows to be u healthy, strong man, an ex. pert hunter and a daredevil in action. Neither the prairie wolf or cayote, black or grizzly bear, mountfiiu lion or Indian can scare him, ordinarily. After a few years service be may be allowed tn go HOME TO MARRY, leave his wife dependent on his wages, near the bouse of the owner of the flock, to re turn to the prairie from whence thereafier he is allowed to come near his family once or twice a year, for a few days, on an ertand for victuals. Of course it ofieu hap pens that., on a visit htmie he finds that his young wife either left frr ' fields t ew god pastures green" altogether iu a neighboring town, or his place fnled by somebody else neither, 'out of sight, nor out of mind." Another more laborious way. character istic of New Mexico, is the way of supply ing the market of towns or villages with wood. At the firxt brenk of day the poor native arites fo saddle up one or more burros a6ses gets his axe, a couple of raw-hide roprg and leaves for the timber land; generally from 3 to 10 miles along the líio Orando often 20 to 25 miles distant He chops down a couple of trees, unless he is the lucky finder of a coupl of logs already felled or blown down, splits the wood for slove or fireplace size, throws the load on his lurros, ties on the pack and leaves for the market where be arrives about noon, and gets for bis day's labor for him self and animals, generally about 25 CKXTS A LOAD. This has to furnish fod and clethicg for himself and fumily. Generally, our native never takes into ccouol the time necetsary to do a certain job. He calcúlales only on what be realises after the thing is done; he says work or no work himself and those dependent on bim will have to eat somethine at any rate, and every cent of money made is so much gained. We know it to be a fact that tlero are thousands of persons, large and small in New Mexico, who consider the presence of a piece cflresh meat fur a meal at a bolyday; who never wear other rhoes than thrse ninde by themselves out of a piece of rhwhide fer the sole and an old boot leg, piece f buffalo robe or buckskin for uppers whose lips seldom, if ever, taste other bread than that of corn ground fine 1 y land be tween two rocks, mixed with water and baked on some flat stone, earthenware or piece tf iron, in a flat cake tortiUa and whose life is one of misery and want from the cradle to the grave. Is it any wonder than that, when the tempter whispers iu bis ears a poor wretch forsakes the path of honesty and by other ihan fair means tries to have at least one day of good life, and if r ot discovered, is led to believe tbat the ways of the transgressor are not as hard as he was naJe to believe? Is it then any wonder tbat some unnatural mother, tired of her everlasting proverty, attempts to gain an easier life by treans of the cbaims of her offspring? Is New Mexico the only place where the social evil exists'fcnd ''long fingered" votaries play their a'mble trick f? Do they build jails, bouses of correction and penitentiaries in the States for honest men and virtuous women? And yet hardly a newspaper in the whole dominion of Uncle Sam, when speaking of New Mexico obstains from throwing slurs at our popula tion. In their eyes everybody is a gteaser dishonest, lazy and without virtue. We intend to write up Ihe Territory of New Mexico as it is. That there are many things here which ought to be corrected and improved we cannot, we dare not deny. The despotism and anarchy of former governments have led to customs and habits which are daily disappearing since the Ter ritory has been annexed to the United States. Its natural isolation, with hardly any intercourse with the rest of mankind up to recent dates, has had a bad effect upon manners; retarded the development of its varied and iinmeuse resources, and almost entirely kept strangers from coming here. But show ua a single community in the wide world with a population equal to that of New Mexico 130.000 which dare to compare the proceedings of its criminal courts with ours. Runsack the archives of all the different tribunals, from the humblest justice of the peace courts in every precinct of ihe twelve existing counties, to tho Supreme Court of the Territoiy, specify all the different classes of criminal actions investigated during a certain period say a year and then bring along your tally sheet of any community npou God's creation ol an equal number of inhabitants and torn pare. We challenge every newspaper iu tba United States, representing an equal num ber of residents with us, Is chronicle, cor ree'ly. for the next twelve months, all the murders, thefts, elopements, defalcations and other crimes and misdemeanors com mitted and then to compare. If a sheriff of a County in New Mexico advertises once in a life time a piecibf properly for sale for non payment of taxes it is sure to belong to a non-resident who abandoned it for one cause or another; we don't need to issue extras to publish the delinquent tax lint, like our eastern neigh bors do. Here the people are law abiding and Day up their quota, even if they grumble about hard times. Anatria. The question is often asked, "what will Austria do when the Russians and Turks gel to fighting?" She will do only what Germany and Russia have agreed she may do. If she attempts anything more adven turous she will be crushed like thin glass. Ausriaisas sick as Turkey and lives en tolerance. Her debt, over $G00, 000,000 in 18Ó0, is now $1.500,000,000 and still iucreising.

What she would do if llie dure it to become an ally of the Sul tan and help thrash the Russians, for when these last ere once permanently establiahed in Romania and Bulgaria, the heterogeneous Austrian Empire will be as much at their mercy as Turkey, and more fur England bat not the same motive for saving the Aus trian! as she has for preventing Russia from gelling poosecsion of Constantinople and the strain. San Francitco Chroniclt The Iluaban'f of Fa mona Beaut. From the I ouisville Dispatch. Vene H. Armstrong, a weelthy retired pork mercbaut, died here recently. He retired from business about ten mom lis ago after making a fortune of about $200,000. and manied th.i once celebrated beauty, Sallie Ward Hunt. Hit death makes ber once mere a widow, and revives retninis cei.es concerning Ler firt carriage to Lawrence, a wealthy Boflon man. Divore ed from him, she was married to Dr. Hunt a man of great wealth, and lived in opulence for years. Dr. Hunt'e death brought her reigo in fashion to an end. At that time Vene H. Armstrong was just rising in the world, aud Sallie Ward Unt retired, and lived economically for years on a email in come. At 60 years of age she wai married to Armstrong, and once more she became a leader in Louisville :ashioi, The Imane Ernpren. Paris, April 10. Carlotta was transfer red a long time ago from the royal chateau at Ellken, where she was a source of con tiderable annoyance to the royal family, to the place of Tervueren, which was specialy fitted np for her, where she was treated with the utmost tenderness. But she soon perceived that she was a prisoner and, in her folly she wai so unusually sharp tbat shu succeeded in escaping one morning early at dawn and flying away began to plan for recommencing her correspondence wilh the Pope with numerous Emperers, and even with ber husband the anouncement of whose death she bad never been allowed to hear until recently. When her escape was discovered the captain of tha guard at the place went nearly mad with despair. But in a couple of hours she was found again. She had mounted a horse in the chateau yard and wandered off into the woods. This happened before Dr. Bul kem, the noted director of the colony of the insane at Gheel, took charge of her case. She has lately been in an alarming condition of health but after Dr. Bulkens be an to direct her movements she was calm, aud is now in many respects perfect ly sane. She writes a great deal, paints, studies music earnestly, and it is now eaid tbat the doctor had the courage to tell her the truth concerning Maximilian's sad fate. She re ceived the news calmly, but it is impossible to say whether or not she appreciates its significance fully. She has occasional fits of delirium, and one phase of her insanity has never quitted her. She is still afraid that her food is poisoned, and refuses to partake of it until until some one else has tasted it. Her ct&e still has many discour aging features, but it was confidently hoped that the noted doctor might he able to re-, store her completely to reason. Death has taken hiiu away, however, aud the success of lesser physicians is more problematical. The Queen of the Belgians frequently visits Car'otta, and spends hours with her, Boston Journal. An t'opement, in which a milkman and an heiress were the pricipal actors, came to light at the Fifty sevn'.h street Court yesterdny The dolendant, August Snyder, some six months ago formed the acquaint ance of Mary Elizabeth Lincoln, a school girl of 16 years, residing at No. 92 Jane street. He fell in love with her aud she reciprocated his attachment. Her parent! are well off, tnd in addition to her portion of their property the has a dower left by a rich relation. On Wednesday morning Miss Lincoln left her home as usual to go to school. She . did not return, however, tt the usual hour, and and her parents became alarmed. As night aproached they insti tuted a search, and the matter was given into the hands ot the police. Snyder's rooms at No. 7C8 Eighth avenue were visi ted by officer Moore of the '1 wenty second Precinct, and there Mist Lincoln was found comfortably ensconced at housekeeper. Snyder was at once arrested as an abductor. Judge Smith gave him the alternative of being locked up or married. He preferred fo get married, and half an hour later they were made man and wife by Rev. Dr. How et, the motber of the girl paying the marriage fee. AVw York Timet. IHH Mexico. Matamoras, May 2 In view of the pre sencc of Gen. Escobeda, who it the chief supporter of ex President Lerdo, on the Texas frontier and the probability of an at tempt being made to restore Lerdo to the presidency of Mexico, it is said that Gen. Diaz, acting president, will toon return lo the Rio Grande and assume command of Northern Mexico. Orders have arrived to recruit without delay 6,000 addition! troops and borset which are being concent, trated on the frontier tsspeedilyjas possible. E.cobeda bat crotsed from Texas into Mexico. He will meet with ttuuborn resis tance. It is reported now that Cortina was received id Mexico with demonstrations of favor and has placed hit large stock of bones on hit different ranchee in this vicin ity, which were largely stolen from Texas, at the disposal of the government. Corti nas' friends assert that he will toon return with bit former rank and take action, in striking events on the Rio Grande. According to an article in PAarkwood fur April on the reconstruction of the French, army, France it no able to defend herself againt. Germany but is not yet strong enough to attack ber. The French army, sayt the writer, is now 1,300,000 strong, and can be increased to nearlr 2,000.000, Yet the Alsace- Lorraine fortresses alone will keep the French at home for years. .te Jidge Peltg Sprague of Boston it the oldest ex-Uuited Senator now living.
