J. II. KUOUI.EK, Editor. 1 j To the People of .cw Mexico, j Fei.i.owcitizbns: -The time being near for my departure to the nntiemul capital with the object of eti'eriiij? n"n the arduous ana responsible duties which will rest upon tne as your representative in Congress, 1 re cognize it as my duty to Hd Ires? you as my ronstituenu wln.se rivhti, I dial! represent biifor the auprema p jW jrs of our govern ment. Thankful for tin honor with which you have distiniruiidied me, by eli-vatir.g ine to a position fur which I do not consider my" feirrjMalifi.il, Biid to whii'h I h ive been i-U'cUmI I y a muj iriiy of the vites deposited in he plrt( thI iinu. I g ' wi'lin!y to fulfill yo'tr de-nir n-;-i-i': ' ..V confidence in i'ivirie fr .'.il tu.it in 7 humille -n le-ivors to further t progress and wel fare of my r.a'ivu country, will have ths good iiisuri which I ao ardeut'y desire. You know well fellowcitixens, the great and pressing difficulties with which mi humble delegate nf a territory ha to contend, to make effective his repreiictitatii ns before tüe nationai guverntn tit. J he standing of a territorial tit-legate in not equal to that of tha representative of a sovtre'gn state, as tie first has not the it fluence of the vote which the second has and consequently can not niuke his representations ns potent in the halls of Congress. Such is the differ ence which exists but weou the two classes of representatives with respect to their powerB; the first has to present hiniself as a supplieaut to Du.ke known his just claims in the nsme of the petiole he represen, while the other doma ids imperatively that, which is due tr his constituents as members of thegreatAmerieiui family, whn h demands he can enforce l his vote, with others who may expect his cooperation in exigencies. As the delegate of a territory is, therefore, only the exponent of the necessities of his people, in order to niuke his voice beurd, it requires necessarily the unanimou3 cooper ation of the people he represents, to pain that which t'uey wioh to suture fiom the government. This aid tind support I earn estly so icit. cd' you, supplicating you to ignore partisan spirit mid unite with me in jiromnting the welfare of our Terr tory. In conclusion, fellow-cilize ns. allow me to assure ynu f my good will, as, since the moment of the act ept unce of the nomin hlion for the (fice, to winch you have eV-ct od me, my ll,uurlts have not been other than to serve ihr people faithfully, even at (real saciificcs. which I am disposed to make, without favor to any party, and con sider aiyself not the representative of any faction, but t f ;lu people in general. Very Respectfully. i r.nriDAD hovero. L;s Vegr.9, N VI.. Sept. lilt It . 1877. The Xcw.i A Frcu is nuthoiity for the 'utcnicnt thnt un uttcmpt will be made I his vintcr 'o dividí) Colíax county, creciinj; n?w county cut of the t attcru portion and attaching the westen purl, including Ci marron, to i'nos. We (.'o not know upon what, ground ihut j Mirnal btses its conclu sions, but we huriiiy think there tan be sny serious danger cf tti it. '1 he principal objections to such a division are that it is nguilist cm nnn seme, nuturtl, geogra phical mid 8c. rial divisions, and the best interests of b ith Colfax and Taos coii'itie-. According to Ilre-voorts estimate in lr-74. the popnla'ion of Tims county w is tome thing over 13 ft 10 thn! of Colfax over 4. COO Hotn counties tog. ther extend across tlm Territory from lvist to wc-st with the tciin. mit of the miii range of the Kooky Mrunt sins between them, is the dividing line. The counties rre both large and not o rms- ly pe pl"d ns to call fr a division of either; particularly, Cu'.f.ix is not so popul nu as to have tin undue weight in the coun cils sf the Territory. The counties are in geographical sen!, syiiieirical in fdicpe, and in a social and com nercial sense, pro perly congtii cited A large roi-jority of the people of Taos speak thy Spanish language while a ninj irity of the people of Colfax speak ilia E.i'ish. I'uo-t i t one of the old est counties of the Terri'ory. Colfax one of tie newest. The people of one county diflVr in language and customs Trim tbse of the other, and hence each f-r themselves can better and more satisfactorily conduct tbeir courts, their schools, their public meetings and municipal tiff.iirs, than they possibly could together. Thn western part of Colfax is rich in tilines, timber coal fi;Ms and egricultu'e, and to compel) tlWe peop'e to subaiil the many j lesii'ms. growing out nf these interests, to a.ij t lie ilion and deter in iiifction by a p :ople aero a high range of mountains, and without common interests is prepojieron. It is so far sj-iiust com moti inn, that we believe such a question need only h raised in the next legislature lo le unanimously defeated. l ot tl.t Shupp has the .-ccm 1 story cf his new shop tin.

The incontrwvertille testimony offered by those who have used Dr. Pierce's Fa vorite Prescription induced tha doctor to sell it under a positive guarantee. Many ladies have refrained from using it on ae count of a g ner il feeling of prejudice against . advertised medicinss Let me ask a question. Aro jou prejudiced against sewing machines because you have seen them advertised? or can you doubt the ingenuity and skill r"qutred in their inven tion? Ag:in, would you refuse to insure your house because the company advertis ed thnt it hud paid millions in losses, nnd yet had a cupital of several millions? Do such advertisements shuke your confidence, und create prejudices? Then why refuse to credit the testimony of th i.ie who have found the Favovil Previ iption to be all that is claimed for it in overcoming those ailments peculiar to your sex? Why sub mit to the use of hur.th. and perhaps caus 'ic treatment, thus aggravating your malady when relief is gu i r cntned, and a positive perfect, and pcrmutient cure has been effected in thousands of casts?

After iLc C'üijc'.u'ii.u of their g"ncral rt cep ion anJ b.isinrss merting on Tuesday evening at the Fif'h Avenuo Hotel, Gov, Garber, of Nekraska; Gov. Bidle ef Ne Jersey and Guv. New bold, of Iowa, left for home. Af er tiny had gone the qiar tet, who ha-? remained for the purpose of insoecting the City educational institutions were disconsolate. It was too early to go to bed they were tu tired for more hand, shaking, and if they walked the corridors of the hotel ihey would only be the victims of idle curiosity. While considering what they should do Tolice Convit'ísioner Wheeler was announced, and he was asked to answer the question. Af'er a few mi nu'es' thought, that as the hcur was late the only sights available were the "tiger"' and the ''elephant," both of which could be seen to an advuntagu at that hour of the night. The western visitors consented.- Carria gen were summoned, and the party Marled in quest of the "elephant.'' The first place visited was i he Grand Duke Opera house. About un hour w is s;ent here, and then the party adjourn' d to Harry Hill's Their presence was quickly noticed, and a special programme was improvised for their cntcrtbiiirnent, during the courso of which "Jiru'' Kelly and Tfcddoii's "Mouse" had a ''set-to with the gloves which called out loud applause from tin gentlemen who hail from Kunsss and Wis consin Other entertainments followed, and at an early hour yesterday morning the party returned to '.he Fifth Avenue Hotel. AeiP York Time I.. vii de. In a series of well written and instructive articles tn the Lis Vegas Gazelle, treating of New Mexieo, a strong, and as we think, unmerited reflection is made upon Major l.ynde who comanded Fort Fillmore at the outbreak of the war. Probably the writer of the inicies referred to, was nota Ware of the fact that Major Lynde. in abandoning Fill more, was acting under a positive and urgent orde r of Col Canby, lo Tárate the post and march north ría Fort Stanton; that the order was ia triplicate an . that the retention of the post was only-contingetf npin the arriralat Cook's Fpiinfs of troop from the west. At this point Major Lyude held a messenger for the purpose of ex pressing the news of ths arrival of these troops. These orders were fonnd in Mxjor Lynde's desk at Fillmore, after bis evacuation of ths post. One wsi wholly in the band writing of Caul. ai.J the other two in that of his Adjutant, Anderson; but one of the latter showed interliniatints in the wall known hand writing of Canby. The best informed residents of ths Mesilla Valley claim that Lynde was made the scapegoat of Oatiby, to cover the timidity, shown by the latter in withdrawing bis troops north of the Jornada Del Muerto, instead of allowing them to remain south of that desert. Silcer City Herald. The Rio Grande Extension. The prospects of a railroad into the San Juan mining regions increases daily. This morning articles of incorporation were filed in the office tf the Secretary of State for the Alamosa Railroad Company, which or ganization proposes to construct a railroad from the piesent terminus of the Denver fc Rio Grande Railroad at Garland, in a south westerly nnd we-terly direction to a point on the west bank ol the Rio Grai.Jo river in Conejos county, known as Alamosa, a distance of 35 miles. The principal office of the company is to be at Colorado Springs The capital stock is tobe $2.j0,000. in shares ef $100 each, and the tiustees are Wm. A. Bell, Wm. J. Palmer. Charles B. Lamborn John Pratt, and Hanson A Rislev. The arrangements of tha company have all been made to push the work forward at once, and we are informed that the woik of grading will be commenced in a very short time. The completion of the new road will bring the railroad terminus within 35 miles of Ll Norte, and one hundred and fifty one of Lake City. In connection with this road another enterprise is talke d of, to build a road from Alamosa to Del Norte, in which a number of Del Norte and San Juan capi talists are interested. The movement has. bowcer, not taken any definite shapo. A 'Hll. OF BF.AITY Indeed nnd it Joy Forever, in tlie Sew nnd Superb l.dition of the .ttork.v Momtloiii Toiii'inI.
