Lovers of relics and antiquities will find in New Mexico a large field for rufearche nnd study. Here the monuments and ruins of cities, built many centuries ago, are still in existence in different places. About 40 miles west of Las Vegas are the ruins of a town formerly belonging to the Putblo In dians of Pecos. The large structure to the right of the stage road used to be a temple vhere the aboriginies worshipped their Cod. All around can be seen truces of a lnrge town, on an elevated table land, in whose rocky foundation imprints of human footsteps can still be distinctly meed. Many legends are iu existence trying to ex plain the cause ot the rapid decrease and depopulation of this former formidable frontier Indian settlement, Among the Mexican population tradition goes that these Indians worshipped A MONSTER SERPENT, who had to be fed on new born babes; especially girls, end that this and the constant war with the then powerful tribe of Comanches reduced them to so few it, number that they found it impossible to up hold a separate town government and emigrated to the West of the Rio Grande. Some of this tribe, who are still living say that Montezuma, the prophet, not the one of the conquest kindled a sacred firs in the place of worship of that lown thereafter went on a mission to Old Mexico, Re had commanded them to keep up the fire until his return, when he would deliver them from the Spanish yoke. All the warriors of the surrounding country, by turns, had to keep guard for two consecutive nights and days without eating and drinking The bodies of those who died on duty, or from subsequent exhaustion, were curried to the den of the serpent. And still others hare it that TWELVE VIROISS, the offsprings of the most prominent Iudianc of the town were selected annually to keep the fire a going; that at one time some of these went to sleep and permitted the fire to go out, whereupon tbe girls were degraded and the town deserted, because they feared the loss of the Sacred Flna e indicated the displeasure of the Prophet to that pueblo. Be that as it may; the ruins are there and denote the former existence of a large city. 1 he remnant of the largest town, divided into rejular streets running due north nnd south, at an interval of from 200 to 2i0 yards, can be seen a few miles due west of tho town of Fernandez de Taos in Taos county. For more than two square miles can the foundation walls be distinctly traced. How the population contrived to get their supply of water is a marvel; be cause the Rio Grande, on whose eastern bank the ruins are, has cut a deep channel into solid rock to the depth of OVER A THOUSAND FEET. No trace whatever is to be seen of f trail, or nad, lending down the perpendicular sides and it is more than six miles, up ur d iwa the stream, to come to a fording. For miles before the traveler reaches the river a noise like the rolling of distant thunder can be heard without being able to solve the question what it means. As far as the eye can reach nothing bat an endless plain of sagebrush meets his gize, and only, after coming to within about five hundred yards of the chasm, cuu the bed of the river be distinguished, whose turbid waters' wind around and !enp over tremen dous holders, causing the deepening noise. Cedar trees more than fifty feet hifh, at the bottom of the cliff, look like little shrubs. Here is the miniature re-presentation of '.be Great Canon of the C0I.ORAPO Or THE WEST. About six miles to the West of the Indian town of San Ildefonso, in Santá Fé coun y' ii the heap of ruina of the former town of Pajarito, on the banks of small rivulet emanating from tbe Valla Mountains. The curiosity of this tnciect habitation is that the walls three or four feet high, of the bouses are composed of totk, all cut in the shape and size of our adobe. Should a stranger htppen to stoop to pick op one of the many lose rocks fallen from the wall, iu the attempt to make great efforts to lift the supposed heavy material, he will cer tainly overbalance h'nuelfaod fall on hit baunchei, because t' e large tubstnece is light ai a feather, being nothing but pumice stone. Tbe whole piesa upon wlich the former town stands is of the same material and on the western abrupt limit latg. caves re hewn into the rock, nicely finished and arched. Some of these are large enough to hold i 1 TIIOfSaSD SHEEP, and ic.tr.j times the herder boji In that ' vicinity have saved their own lives as well as preserved those of their stock, during a snow storm, by taking refuge there in. The most famous and reknowned of all the ruins, though, iu New Mexico, are those of the Great City of Gran Quivira, not far from the Jicarilla Mines. As early as 1523, history says, the Spanish explorer and conqueror Cabeza de Baca fouud bims sel confronted by more than ten thousand warlike Indians on the plains before Gran Quivira. on his march to the Mississippi. Present evidences corroborate the vaatness of that ancient town. For miles and miles can be traced the foundation of houses and large and substantial aqueducts for carry ing water into the plains, either for milling or agricultural purposes. Legend has it that untold treasures lay still hidden at the bottom of the cave, in that vicinity, watched by a fiery dragon. It is impassible to find a native, or Indian, of sufficient courage to explore this cavo, and even a few yeart ago two Ameiicans, who entered, were over taken with fear on account of the UNE.iETHI.Y NOISK after proceeding a few hundred yards within In our opinion there is nothing unearthly whatever connected therewith; and some of these days when the Jicarlilas are densely settled there will not be wanting those of sufficient self possession and spirit of ad venture who, after exploring the whole cave will sustain us in our opinion that the noise comes from a subterranean river, within the cave. History speaks of a rivor in the plains of Gran Quivira; now a days the whole plain is waterless; no stream, no springs to parch the thirsty lips of the ex plorer; 'he city could not have existed there ifit had been as dry then, as it is now. and the fiery dragon of the legend, watching the treasures of the ancient, will be the the stream of fortune wherein to wash THE ENDLESS TREASURES of the placer mines of that vicinity. Should we want to describe the large and many ancient cities in ruins in the ftavajoe country, at. the Jemes Springs and other places of New Mexico, we would have to encroach too much upon the patience of our readers to follow us to the end. Suf fice it to say, for the present, that here, in New Mexico, a traveler can find plenty to study about the probable habils, strength and civil'zatioii of the ancient race of Aztecs. At the beginning of the present campaign on the Danube, when the Russians tempo rarily closed that river to free navigation, the nations depending upon that stream for a commercial highway pretested loudly against tho measure. The Russians at once acquiesced and reopened the channels within their control to navigation; but in the mean time the Grand Duke Nicholm so managed his distribution and concen tration of troops p.s to force Ihe Turk to mass a considerable Dumber of soldiers near the south bank ol the Danube, as well as to defend the bank of river with torpe does and gunboats in such a manner as lo mke it impossible to accede to the firm demand for tbe opening of the stream to neutral navigation, and thereby draw upon themselves the displeasure of the Great Powers of Furope.S. F. Chronicle. A deseiter from the United States army went into business aa a barber in Oakland, Cal, and prospered. A former comrade recognized him. and extorted blackmail by threatening to expose hlra to the au ihorities. The barber paid regularly $5 & week for si'ence. Thin the blackmailer took into the plot a friend, who, by similar threats, got $.5 a week. At length a third rascal joined in the attaek, and the barber, scing that hi? nay roll was likely to in crease beyond his resource, resolved lo killoffihe recipients of Lis money. lit shot one of tbem, was caught in the act, and is now in jail, where, awaiting prosecu tion, he is at least free from persecution. The near approach of tbe Fourth of Inly is locked upon with anxiety by the insurance officers, and the Committee on Statistics of ihe National Btard of Under writers has recently made a report in which it is stated that every dollar's worth of fire crake rs unporled into tuis country bit ocri soitr! a direct lots by lire of over $100. The report shows that of T'1 cities and large towt,s heard from 494 have ordi nances against fire- wirks snd 6rt crackers and 277 are without such ordinances, and the committee recomraeud tbtt cities and towns without sui h ordinances adopt them, at once I)evwr Timet. "Ob, leavens, save ny w'.fi!" shouted a man whose wife bad fallen overheard in Hudson river, recently. They succeed 4 iu rescuing her. And the husband tenderly embraced her, saying. --My dear, if you'd been Jrowned, what should I have doce? I ain't goine to let you carry tin rocket boeksjiin." 11 1.1 -J V
