Ono of our religious journals, the
litvkta Evangélica, says a poition
of the press of New Mexico h.u its
linn J over its mouth. That may be
good, or bal, according to circum
stances. When a peion hasn't anything
to say, it is generally considered
the proper thin to keep his mouth
fchut. It is hIho good to keep with
in the bounds oí' truth and reason,
nnd not give vedou to unfounded
cíiare?, or revel in bitter, ficrco
and unchristian like denunciation cf
r.n opponent. Possibly, this sys
tPtn of warfare, however, is put up'
on the grounds of '-righteous indig
nation," and partakes of the spirit,
of Divine wrath. It is the saino
spirit which Hob Irgersoll, in a re
cent lecture, ascribed to the presby
tery of Chicho. In speaking of
the burnirg of Servctus, by Johu
C!vin, he said:
"Hud such men a9 Robert Oliv
er nnd John Sinrt Mill bo en pte
cent at the burning of S.-rvetus,.
they waul i Inva extinguished the
iimes with tears. Had the pres
bytery ot Chicago been there, they
would have ipjiiiiy turned their
backs, Rolemr.Iy divide their coat I
t nit ami warmed thc-mso! vi s."
A malignant disposition may bo
Entirely proper in religious journal-;
but secular papers sboul 1 keen their
J.aids over their in mths. They!
thould cultivate (haritv. What- I
ver individual views secular writers
may hold, they shoijl 1 carefully
guard their pens from f itler inueif
loe?, or bold axK'ithii.', a'r.ius
ilia cherished Mid m. red fault of
others. They chould practice pa-
tuTiCe and trust to time and an ad
vancing civilization to correct at;.'. !
i-radicate tho-H matters ot' I.eiiW !
whieli t!i.'V u ay dvcn errontous. !
Tht Jiivh i f tht) eriiKadcs are past, j
and nligion is no longer pn pngn
tdl by the sword or the spirit f.f
wrath and ititoleiancp, which made!
it fin instrument for M.h-ation. A i
fpirit of peane, of charity and moro I
elevated christian sentiment is pre-I
vadmg the wc.i! 1. j
It is thirrfore j rc rie r that the '
Neeular press thould keep iloif
from bitter religious controversies,
leaving (such contest to the religious
elasH of journals. The tone and
onduct of secular pi-pus thioii:.'!.
out the United States is steadily
improving. The best papera a.o no
longer the ino-t subservient to par
ties mid the vehicles for vindictive

Htt-I alvocitte tthat they know to be

Editor Laa Veyas Gazeitk:
Court opened Monday, with Sam

of both gran and petit juries. Jo

There is considerable criminal busi
ness pending. In lictments for
tr.urder, bigam;,, larceny, etc., some
of which must likely go over to the
next term, for want of time. Mon
day afternoon a rain storm set in
which continued steadily until Tues
day noon. Sr ow fell in the sur
rounding mountains to great dssth;
report says six feet. An extensive
acrengo of wheat is being planted
in this county, under such favor
able circumstances, that an abun
dant horvot is hoped for. The
mountains and va'leys of this re
gion form a most beautiful land
scape. The mountains, white with
snow, li.ok cool imd bril iunt at
noon tide, while the valleva fire
teeming with agricultural life, and
the nnuieroua bro' k'ets fo med from
the co.-;l springs kmI melting snows

The fjMire of Las Vcafi is about
as nearly assured as anj thing in iVs
world can be, ixcrptdtath The
policy tf the Att hi,- on, Topi ka
Santa Fe con.iai y has been to build
up t"ie towns already established and I
not project i. w on s rear enough
to rival the old. This being lh ir
dechired policy end this town being
their principal objective point in
New Mexico, we can with much
certainty predict that it will be tiie
w b( lesaleir.g poi' t of all New Mex
ico, Arizona, Western Texas and a
large j oi thin of Northern Mcx'eo.
Her will be centered the vast cat
tle tiaile i f Western TfX-is. It will
be the outfitting point for aii sout.li

be csiii'ili.-hed the daughter iolscs
