HER rROCUCSS AND DETEI.OPMKST. Before the war it could be Batd ia all rnrtb. that New Mexico was an isolated, lonelj and God-forsaken country. If one entered by the old States road from Kansas no house, no settlement whatever, greeted ths traveller ncross the plains, until he came to Maxwell's ranch, where now stands the town of Cimarron. The town of Rayado was a loDely country eea1, and Fort Union was a little cluster ol log cabbina perched against the hill occupying the site cf the present arsenal. Between that post and Las Vegas was only one stopping pluce, called Barkley's Fort, the old house and stonewalls around which can still be seen between the towns of Tiptonville and La Junta. Few, if any, took heart to travel in small parties from here south. 1 THE TREACHEROUS INDIANS were sura to take forcible tiibutA of every caravan on the road by way of Fort Stanton or r.ear Cañón Blanco, or around Tijeras Cañón, on the way to Albuquerque. Trains were forced then to take to the sandy road down the Rio Grande, as far as Paraje, where they generally laid over to await the trrival of additional numbers, on which account that place took Ihe name of Paraje or rendez'Vons, lo dure to cress the Jorna da del Muerto. The lute "Chief of the Rio Grande," Jack Martin, hid not yet built his pleasant oasis on the New Mexico Desert, and travellers had to make the journey of over ninety miles without a drop of water and were haras&ed, besides, at every s'ep, especially around Point of Rock- by treacherous savages. If a courageous number of drivers dared to stop at the middle of the Jornada to go for water to '.he springs on the present site oi Fort McUae and forgot to put out sentinels while some of them stooped to refresh their parching lips nt the founUin, the deadly bullet or arrow of the hidden foe was sure to lay out another victim at the Ojo del Muerto, or DEAD MAN'S SPRING. Out of every hundred plows used on farms not less lhan ninety-nine were forked sticks. Parties could be seen opening irrigation ditches with wooden shovels. Droves of horses, or herds of sheep, or goti's, were run over the grain to "thresh'' it, Coffee and sugar were luxuries indulged in only by few well-to-do folks; because no store would sell coffee at less than from 73 cents to one dollar a pound. Common prints fetched 25 cents per yard and whiskey well, a barrel couldn't be freighted from Kansas City, or Independence, to this Tr ritory fjr less than Ten Dollars. Nobody ever thought of shearing sheep otherwise than to drive them through underbrush and any one could procure as many íleeios os ho liked for 5 cents a piece, or lake tho trouble to shear them himself. The English language could only be heard spoken around military posts and among civil officers im ported here from the States to govern the Territory.zlt was indeed a deplorable ttate of affair)' similar to the days of the DARK AGES. Look at New Mexico as it is to-day. Three of her twelve counties Lincoln, Colfax and Grant are recently settled, at most entirely by Americans. The English language is Uught in nearly every parish school. Vast tracts of sage brush lands endless prairies end Handbills have been changed into valuable orchards, garden and fields. Improved patterns of mowers and reapers have taken the place of the old sickle. Threshing machines are used instead of sheep or gnati. The clatter of stampmills can be heard in many place Smelting furnaces darken the atmosphere in numerous valley with their constant smoke; boxes of gold and bricks of silver load down every eastward bound mail coach Lengthy and costly ditches bring water Irom distant it reams to help to whsIi out gold from numerous rich placer mines. Dry wishers are imported and loilt among us for the development of new and rich mineral discoveries. Our merchants re ceive monthly installments of fresh and new goods at reduced prices. Thousands of fine XHKIXO AKD COTCWOLD BCCKS I. ave during the list five years taken the place ef the inferior native breeds. Blooded stock grace our race courses, and improved homed cattle graze upon our rich pastures To strangers, coming here directly from more sdvanced districts in the East, our wayi and means piny appear somewhat be hind the present fast ge. But isk our middle sged natives, inquire of our old pioneers, their opinion of tie ita'e of iffsir oTten or fifteen years ago and the present day, and every one will tell you that New Mexico has improved, progressed and developed more rapidly, in comparison with more favored localities elsewhere, than any community of i's size and class upon God's creation. Prejud ced minds and slanderous tongues may be busy pnrading the dnrk side of our resource's, attractions and social stand ing; demoralized reporters and correspond ents of the eastern press may think it a pridi to report their own debaseJ acts and debaucheries, and try to judge others by themselves; sorehead3 may grumble nnd fcrowl because the people of New Mexico ure, like the rest of mankind, neither IMMACULATE NOR INFALLIBLE, but years of experience teach us and real, substantial facts uphold and sustain us in our declaration that this Territory has mode powerful steps upon the road of progress and developement during the last decade, fbne of the most potent proofs in our lavof is the increase in nutnner ana circulation of journals published within our territorial boundaries. Ten years ago tho defunct Santa Fé Gaxfttk, a diminutive sheet of the present New Mexican and the Albuquerque Review were the only journals in existence. Now we have the JVeirs it Press, of Cimarron, in Colfax County; the New Mexco Advertiser, the Revista Cato lira and the English and Sprnish editions of the Gazette, here in Las Vegns. The JV'eto Mexican, at Santa F6; the I'evkw, at Albuquerque; the Eco, at Las Cruces; the Mesilla flews and Independent, at Mesilla; and lastly, the lively paper ca'led The Herald, at Silver City, Two of tbete periodicals, namely the religious paper published by the Jesuits in this town and La (Jaceta, from our own office, are print ed entirely in Spanif-h, and both together have more CIRCULATION AMONO OCR NATIVES han all the rest of the papers oi New Mexico combiued, The SaLta Fé Seic Mexican, Albuquerque llevieic, Las Cruces Eco, Mesilla News and Independent are published half in English nnd half in Spanish, and also circulate largely among ike Mexican populatipn. The children of our well-to-do citizens are receiving eood education at various comendable institutions within the Territory, and our bon tons have their sons and daughters taught and gradu ated at first class seminaries and colleges in the States. We are satisfied wi'h our progress; let croakers say what they may. A young man from the north undertook to take a little ride about the suburbs yes terdaj nf ernoon, for bis amusement, so he smiI. He had on a large pair of Mexican spurs, and as soon ns he got in the saddle he stuck them into the Bides of the animal, which immediately made about ons hun dred yards, sometimes with his head stuck down between Lis forelegs and sometimes with bis tail up in the air, as if be was try ing to walk on his fore paws; in fact it was a kind of faux pavx all around the young man who was taking a ride for l is pleasure contributing his share He saw a great deal of the country in a very few moments, then he struck the ground as if he had a through ticket to China. He gathered himself up, nnd limping to a chair, holding on the lower extension of his spinal column, seemed to he out of sorts. "Did you get hurt?" was the anxious in quiry. "Not a darned bit," was the reply, grat ing his teeth and fondling the ifflicted part; "but somebody might have g..t hurt if I hadn't dismounted when I did; but I would not have ridden that pony In the first piare if I hadn't been an experienced horseman." Verily "pride kaows no pain," but the young man don't wear those Mexican spun any more, net even when he rides out for Lis pleasure in a back, with a careful dri ver and I wo hearse horses, hired especially for the occasion. Fan Antonio Herald. He was praising her beautiful bair. add tcgg,nS ft" oce (nT cur'i wben her little brother said; "O, my! 'tiin't nothin' now. You just ought to have seen bow long it bangs down when she hat gs it on the side of the table to comb it." Then they laughed, and she called her brother a cuta little angel, and when the young man was going away and beard the boy yelling, ha thought the lad was taken suddenly and dsngeronsly ill. An ingenious girl up on North Hill, who has never had a "feller" in the world, gondj ihe other girls in tbt neighborhood to madness by lighting up the parlor bril liantly and then setting her father's bat where its shadow will be boldly marked against the curtain. "How dare you say that I never open my month without putting my foit in it?" sked Brown of Jones. "I hope you w.ll forgive me," rfplitd Jonei, "for when I said it had never leen the sizs of yiur foo'.," Louisville, June 18. A very startling sensation has been developed here. A lady occupying a high social position, Mrs. T. T. Uawkins by name, as the story is told, has, within the last few years, obtain ed $40.000 from her mother on pretenti that she was investing it in tobaco specula tion8, She claimed that Senator Stevenson George H. Pendleton. Col. Taylor and others were in partnership with her, 'Ihe mother, believing this, advanced the money. The gentlemen named deny any husmees transactions with her, and the story, as far as. they are concerned, is utterly devoid of truth, The lady made attempts to secure cash on notes, but failed. They were forged and signed with Taylor's name. Her re latives pronounce Mrs. II. deranged. The ull'.iir causes considerable excitement. The Las Vegas Hot Springs are attract ing considerable attention and many visitors are coming from the east. In the ordering of nature these springs were mace hot for the healing of mankind and as the railroad is not so grently distant and the Centennial is over, a cor.stntit increase in the number of visitors ftom the east may be expected. Tourists can not find a more healthy local- 'y, better accommodations or ranre picttir esque surroundings than the Hot Springs at Las Vegus. Let travelers from the north come down and tr.ke a bath and they will not regret it. Chicago, June 13, Capt. Lee, of the Tenth cavalry, has forwarded to General Sheridan from Fort ClriíTin, Texis, an ac ount of his engagement with a band of Co manche Indians, near Lake Grenada. The kirtnish occurred on the 4th of May: 4 In dians were killed, 0 squaws and CÚ mules nnd horses captured, and fifteen lodges, with a large supply of powder, lead, dried mea's, etc, were destroyed. First Sorgcatt Chan Butler was killed. At the Paris School of arts and trades experiments were lately made with a paper alleged to bo incombustible. Sheets cf it were exposed singly to the fierce flames of a spirit lamp without other effect than to slightly wither it. When the paper was exposed in bulk no effect whs apparent. It was thought very desirable for the nianu facture of bank cotes. The secret of the manu facture rests with the experimenter. The chief of the bureau of itatintics has received information from Glasgow stating that the importation nf American fresh neat into that city has ereatlv checked the previous steady incrne in the slaughter of cattle. Last year C7.321 oxen. 17i'..O0O shenp, 41,012 lambs and 1,741 calves were slaughtered, being a decrease of about 1,500 cattle, 23,000 sheep, and 9.C00 Iambi as contrasted with 1S75. "I am convinced that the world is daily growing better," remarked the reverend gentleman to a brotbir clergyman; "my congregation is constantly increasing." Yes," interrupted the brother, who hap pened lo be a penitentiary chnpluin, "and so is mine." And there the discussion on the early arrival of the millennium stopped, An Indian maiden, having curiously watched the marking of barrels of flour in it flourishing flour mill in Wiuona, Minn., en tered unseen, and marked her blnnk.t 'Ellsworth's choice." She paraded the streets delifihted with this mark of dixiinn. tion. and greatly to the disgust of Mr. Ells worth, who is a confirmed bachelor. A Missouri clergyman is asked to vacate the pulpit just because he bnd three wivei living and is suspected of having poisoned the fourth. Church congregations are be coming so particular that after a while a clergyman will not be permitted to have any worldly enjoyment at all. yorristou-n He rald. Crops throughout New Mexico never looked better than this year. The hoppers bavs done but little harm and an excellent crop of wheat and oais i i assured. Corn also looks splendid. Grass is good and Hay will not be any special object but can be cut most anywhere. Samuel J. Tilden has been sued fur $i;0.C0O back taxes.
