J. II. KOOGI.ER, Editor.
We have several times expressed our opinion in favor of removing the Territorial capital to Las Vegas. Wo know that the majority of the people, even outside of tho3e of San Miguel county, woulJ be greatly benefitted by this step. The Silver City Herald thinks Valencia would be more centra'ly situated. Now comes the Cimarron News ft rress with the following: "The Herald is right end the Gatette has for gotten something. If Valencia is not the seat of empire and the cent tie of power of New Mexico, we don't know wheie it is. The records bIiow that there are more voters to the equare yards in that county than n any locality outside of the Five Points, and wo refer to the Hew Mexican to rovo it. We are in favor cf Las Vegas, and thought that enterprising town had some prospect in the future, but this Va lencia suggestion ruts off all hope at one cruel stroke. We must hang our harps on the willows." We a . vico our neighbors not to unbuckle their armoi so easily. Santa Fé is not New Mflxico, nor the New Mex ican the whole people. Tho Legis lature will have a word to say about this next winter, and that they will Bay it and decide in favor of Las Vegas there is no doubt. So keep up your courage and never iay die until tou are as dead as a mackerel. The Border Troubles. Wo have received reliable infor mation from our special correspon dents Machorro levied a tax of 1.1-2 per cent on tho people of El Paso: a number of the citizens col lected in fjree, resisted the collection and on Juno 4ih a conflict ensued in which Mr. Velarde and Mr. Ilor casitas of Machorro's force were shot; and Pedro Lucero and two others of the citizens' force were killed, and seme other were wounded". Machorro was compelled to cross the Rio Grande to El Taso Tex; and a demand was then mada for him, Conception Oohoa and II. Corrales under the extradition laws to the district judge there aud signed by Jesus Telles as "Gefe Politico and commander-in-chief for the people", What the answer cf the district judge will be is not known. Threats are made if the refugees are not given up, they will pa?s over in force on to United States soil and take them. There are i.o U, S. troops within 150 miles -3 Forts Selden, Mcltae and Bliss have been abandoned. Comment is unnccesary. There is great excitement along the border. Filibustering rxpeditone form the all absorbing theme. Ma chorro came up to Las Cruces in tho Mesilla valley, aud we learn he intends to collect a force and held El Pao. lie is in telegraphic communication with Lerdo; and has been serenaded by so'uo of his friends. In a row between 2 Mexicans on the street in "California" on Thurs day r.ight, Santa Ccui Martines Bteppel up to btop the trouble, and during the scufilo was cut with a knife and died from the wound soon after. An cxnmination was held before judge Chacon on Friday, but on acount of the darkness of the night and the excitment prevailing at the time the teuiinony was very conflicting. Albillar, who had 2 cuts himself, was discharged and Bertol Is bound over to await the action of the next grand jury; young Martines wad buried Satur dy morning. Mesilla News. The Newt ft Tren sayi that the people of Dry Cimarron precinct have contributed six hundred dol ían for the purpose of erecting a etlool Louse there. Colfx justly ISrsga on its public school, and we do not believe that there is an other county in tho Territory where as much interest is taken in educa tional matters, or the schools are as numeroue according to the pop uLtion, cr as excellent. Pnerto de I.nni. From a private letter from C. II. Moore, of Puerto do Luna, we take the following items: "I have re ceived a letter from Capt. Clancy. The latter is lambing his Bheep at Camp Allen, on the Little Colora do, Arizona. His herd will arrive in this county about the first of Oc tober, The sheep are iu good con dition after their trip from Califor nia. Cora and whrat look splendid in the vicinity of Puerto de Luna; no grasshoppess; we will raise this year enough breadstuff in this val ley to feed the Turkish and Russian armies. We read now ot numerous excur. sions by editorial associations of dif ferent States. The railroals dead head the Missouri editors, Kansas editors, etc., all aromi over the plains and they are entertained as if they were princes. But tho mem bers of the New Mexico Press don't associate much and if they ever go on an excursion, it is not by a free pass over a railroad, but by burro fitted up at their own expense. However we are consoled by the thought that better people than us fellows have been truiisportod by a donkey. Fiom the Eco del Rio Grande: Messrs. A. J. Fountain and Capt. J. S, Crouch have been busy the most of the week fitting up their office as the material for the Me silla Valley Independent is expect ed to arrive this week. They will have, when finished the most com-, modious offise in the Territory. We doubt whether it will be the best office in tho Territory howevei. as the office of the Revista Católica of this city has the best presses and is the moat complete of any íd the Territory. ' Hi Wonder if Trinidad has been burned up? On the new map re cently issued by the Fenver k Rio Grande railroad, we fail to find the town. There are the Raton Moun tains, Fisher's Peak, which old man Fisher is supposed to have build, El Moro, and many other familiar sur roundings, there, or thereat outs, where Trinidad is supposed to be located, but we do not find the point or. the map. It seems to be eliminated from tho important plai ces. The patent outoido Bnd inside papers are coming to us blazing with gorgeous maps of the Beat of wa: in Europe. As eoon as we get the names changed, we will fclap in our railroad map nf New Mexico. The Rocky Mountains will do for the Balkans; tho Rio Grande will be ehutged to the Danube, and we will interpolate tho BUck Sea, Erzer oum, Constantinople and the Gol den Horn, so as to bring the latter just where the Jicarilla mountains project above the surrounding level. That etory about Manuel Vigil introducing Email pox in Trinidad from a scab token from a small pox patient at Las Vegas turns out to be a canard, as we anticipated last week. The papers of that town de ny that there wa3 any foundation for the story. Spencer Maynard, editor of the Pioneer, has severed his connection1 with that paper and is now employ ed on the staff of the Enterprise ft Chronich. Dr. John V. Noel has mounted tho tripod of the former journal. -. Oa the 8th of this month, the date ef our fire in Las Vegas, two destructive conflagrations occurred respectively in Bridgeport, Connec ticut, and Gvlveston, Tcxaf. Hon. P. P. Wiléox, of Denver, tiss been appointed U. S. Marshal for Colorado, vice Tompkins, re signed. Grasshoppers have invaded Col fax county according to the local paper, in considerable rnmhcrs. Trinidad had a snowstorm on the 8th of June. Tbry should luxurate iu cool drinks. By latest advices the Turks seem to be getting the worst of the fiht Mukhtar Pasha is evidently in a critical position at Erzeroum, and unless the Russian forces are diawn off by sorce Btrategy it seems im possible that the Turkish forces ean avoid a surrender en Masse. All communications have been cut off and the Russians are guarding every pass and roan. There is great ex citement in Constantinople. The Sultan has issued an irade which literally inaugurates drafting in its worst form. All Turkish subjects of whatever creed living within the domains of the empire are informed that his Majesty may need all males capable of bearing arms to resist the enemy and preserve the Ottoman institutions. Commercing upon the proposed new territory to comprise the Black Hills and Big Horn country, the San Francisco Call predicts that ccngresss will not, if it creates the territory, permit it to be called Lineo!n,having already twice refused to entitle one after an individual. When Western Kansas (Pike's Peak) applied for an organic act the convention men at Denver selected the name Jefferson for tlmr bant ling. Congress áaid in effect: "No, gentlemen, We have called one territory and prospective state Washington; that will do. No more presidential nomenclatures in the premises." Later still, the territory of which the Black Hills is now a part desired, through its incipient convention, to be called Lincoln. Congress repeated its reply to the Pike's Peakers. So we have Wyo ming instead of Lincoln, and Colo rado instead of Jefferson. Yet it maybe that another congress will disagree with the previous ones in the matter. Denver News. Mexican Time Erom our Mexican exchanges we take the following: Some German subjects resi lirg in Chihuahua have recently presented claims to the Mexican Government for damage caused by local autorities. Gen. Couttolt-ne has retireJ to private life, and is now devoting his energies to the recuperation of his fortune, which ouffeied considerably during the revolution. A disfurbance was caused at a town called Ocotlan, nere Tlaxcaln, a few days ago on account of a reli gious procession marching out of a church 8nd refusing to disperse when ordered to by the authoritias. Gens Regules and Fuero and Messrs. Villa ria and Ainslio who hays for some time past been con fined in San Juan Ulua, charged with conspiring against the Govern ment, have been sent to the city of Mexico for trial. There was no conspiracy against Diaz. Ob, no. Two thousand men left the city ot Mexico for the purpose of restoring order in the State of Guerrero. A rebellion broke out in Tepic some time ao, but was immediately crushed. Galaviz and Marcos Mar tines, tho leaders of tht movement, were kiled. Gen, Jimenez's forces have been defeated twice by the followers of Gen. Alvarez. The experiment of breeding silk worms in Michoac&n appears to have been a success. Tho Monitor saje there were seven spectators killed and twenty wound ed in the sham-battle at 'he city of Mexico on the 5th of May. Pedro Coitreras, chief of the pi rates of Lake Chalco, has been ap prended; .100 loaves of sugar were tound in his house. The curate of Atzcapotzalco drew the $50,000 prize at the last drawing of the Ferrocarril lottery. Bully fur the curate. The Pueblo of Vera-Cruz states that Mr. LerJu has secured $4000, 000 with which to commence a re volution. Lt. Col. Julian Garcia, a LerJiU was executed in Acapulco on the 231. Mr. Apolinario Moctezuma has been imprisoned by order of Gen. Jimenez. Brownsville Democrat. Hht (colote Store. AND U. S. FOAOE AGEXCY OF Dabtir aalinlmtta.
