Snitkcé. Not the ophidians but . those more intangible creations which inhabit the boots, arcnother parasite which tilllict people in the Great South-west, as well as in other portions of the world. The host, or nurse, of this species of reptiles is a kind of "oncry" whiskey, which is consumed in large quantities by the inhabitants of these high and dry tabl ijiinds. Water is scarce and the only real aud substan tial substitute is found to be raw w hiskey. Thus taken iu its natural state, iu the same manner as the la mented A. Johnson was wont to in dulge, it generates snakes in the boots, a species of violent and untaineable reptiles, ghosts of serpents, distilled spirits of departed demons. They get a fellow, or a fellow gets them, just about the time he becomes accus tomed fully to doing entirely without water. They are lively animals and lay a tapeworm dead in the shade. The latter is a sluggish brute, pale and motionless; about the cheapest creation in nature; but the former is full of lire, active, supple and fierce, a trulv dano-erous and unwelcome in habitant of the human form divine. Man is about the only animal that catches these parasites, and he docs not get them often until he takes his departure for that laud where crook ed whiskev is not found. I.lvelt Time. A, A. Hobinson, while here Sun day, received a telegraphic dispatch from President Strong, stating. that the New Mexico & Southern Pacific railroad would be completed to Las Vegas by the first of next March. This Is quick time, but entirely possiblo to lliis company. They propose to rush business. A temporary track will be laid across the tunnel, at the Raton Pass, and the material drawn up by a stationary engine. The A. T. & S. V, company built near 400 miles of railroad, in Kansas, in one year, and they tire liable to repent the same thing, this year, in New Mexico, Las Vegas can aflbrd to be liberal to this company, and those having lauds should freely grant the right of way. They can well afford to make liberal terms with the company, for depot grounds. The increase in the value of their other lands will abun dantly repay them. This company proposes to respect fully the rights of the people, and to work for the ad vantage of the community, and we can well afford to meet them in a ge nerous spirit. ltejeeted. The Xew Mexican states that the committee appointed by the people of Santa Fe, to consider the proposition of the Denver & Rio Grande railroad, have made their report and rejected the terms offered. The railroad com pany proposed to build a new town on the Uio Grande, unless Santa Fe would give $200,000 in money, twen ty acres of laud, for depot grounds, aud the free right of way through the county. The committee could not agree to such a sweeping demand, in view of.the fact that the net passed in last legislature exempts the property of the company for twelve years from taxation. They, however, agreed to oiler the railroad the highest sum which the county can legally vote, about Ü2,000. The A. T, & S. F. company propose, in case the D. & K. G. do not build to Santa Fe, to build a branch road, from some point on the main lino ut or near Las Vegas, by way of the Te colote and Santa Fe creeks, to that town. Ifnyrs' title road. A joint resolution recently passed the House of Representatives that the Forty-fourth congress in joint meet ing declared R. B. Hayes and A. Wheeler respectively, elected presi dent and vice-president, and declar ing that no subsequent house of Con gress lias power to revise the notion, nnd that any attempt lo annul or dis regard such action, or title of the president based thereon, is revolu tionary and is hereby disapproved by this house. The resolution was adop ted; yens, 215, unys, 21. Tin mines have been discovered in Arizona. Fremont has been confirmeM gover nor of Arizona. Prince Bismark will open the Eu ropean congress. Tho eastern papers are predicting better times ahead. The two papers published in Mesi lla do not seem to agree well. William Cullon Bryant, the poet, died at New York on the 13th iust. Marshal Bazaine is living in Sp'phi in very embarrassed circumstances. s -s It is rumored that queen Victoria will marry the earl of Beaconsfield. The President has nominated Phil lip Teare, U. S. Attorney for Califor nia. , John P. Hoyt, of Michigan, has been nominated for governor of Id aho. The investigating committee is Pot tering away at tho presidential frauds. Crown prince, Frederick William of Prussia has been declared regent of the German Empire. npire. ' Las" Vegas tie firsfof A railroad at next March will bring dead loads of tramps into the country. j Paris journals arc protesting against the extortions practiced dipon visitors to tin French capital. The democratic majority in the Or egon legislature assures a democratic senator to succeed liipjiell-Mitchel.X The Albuquerque Jicricw, of the 8th instant, contains a very good ar ticle on the 'dance of the matachines. The works of the Paris Exhibition buildings and adjuncts will not cost less than forty-five millions of francs. The rainy season has set in early in this Territory. The present pros pects indicate abundant moisture this summer. The Alamosa Xews says grading has commenced on the Southern ey tension of the D. & R. G. railroad from that point. Tom Scott wants this country "to feel the thrill of a new enterprise." It looks as though the Texas Pacific would not cause that thrill for soim time yet. Consideration of the Texas Pacific bill has been postponed until nsxt congress. It is time for the South ern Pacific to commence its foward movement. Santa Fe don't really want the Denver Si Rio Grande railroad but she don't see any good way lo help herself. It is a kind of aflliction that can not be avoided. The executive committee of the socialistic labor party lias isuedalong address denouncing: military organi zations of socialists as hostile to the principles and policy of the party in America. A Vermont girl fell out of a rock ing chair aud received injuries which resulted iu her death in a few hours. Moral: Young girls should not sit in a rocking chair unless there is a strong man in it to hold them. Tho latest reports from Rome iu re ference to the health of the Pope arc very unfavorable. A recent dispatch describes him as distressed in mind by the plots and cabals designed to prevent the reforms he proposes." The Ijtader, of Las Animas, nays that orders have been received to take up the remainder of the K. P. branch road, from Garson to Las Animus, except the ties, which arc to be left on tho ground, on account of their condition. The great trouble in Soulh Caroli na politics now is, tltnt the blacks are joining the democratic party iu such numbers that there is danger oí swamping the pnrty. The desire is to keep tho whites in tho ascendency, and thuro is no difference as to black rule, whether they govern as repub licans, or democrats. The Del Norte Prospector stated that the contract was let to build a toll road in place of a railroad from A'amosa to Santa Fe. The Xeios of the former town states tho railroad is to be built nnd knowlts nothing about a toll road. The Santa Barbara Press is author ity for the statement that there isa mountain of iron in Colfax county 10,000 feet high. The top of tho mountain may be that lñl above the level of the sea, but it is á little doubtful if it is iron all tho way up. The Potter investigation has estab lished this fact, that Anderson is not a trustworthy witness. On his testi mony alone the roturas from .Felicia na parish were thrown out, by the1 Louisiana returning board. Thus Hayes was elected bv the oath of an untrustworthvAvitness. Both Emperor William aud Nobcl- tng are improving 111 health, toilet ing did not make an entirely fruitless blow. He has the satisfaction of knowing that the civilized public takes almost as much interest in his condition jij it does in the Emperor's. The, names of both are sent flying over the country together. "' V The Mesilla Xews states that J. II. Riley aud J. S. Crouch came near get ting into a list figbt, lately, in Mesi lla, while talking over the Lincoln count v troubles. There is something manly in that kind of nn encounter: Any scrub can shoot another oppon ent down: but it takes some courage lo face the iiiumc and give nnd take punishment, according to the rules practiced by the bite John Morrisey. asi- Mr. Sargent, of the Atchison, To- peka & Simla Fo railroad, in a con ference with Mr. Dodge, of the nar row gauge road, as reported in tho Denver Tribune, says that the south ern extension and Arkansas exten sion would be built as rapidly as pos sible, and that be (lid not think any steps would be taken, in reference to a Denver extension-," nt present. A road from Pueblo to Denver will be a secondiii-v'considoratioi). rife Intlenentlent savs John X. Copehmd was removed from the of fice of sheriff of Lincoln county, os- tensiblv for the reason that he filled to execute a bond ascx-offieio tax col lector, within thirty days after his election as she rift', as required by law; but a stronger reason for Ins re moval (but of which the Governor could not take cognizance) was. that he exhibited extreme purtizaiixhip in the discharge of his ofiicial duties. . -- Everybody w ill want it. Edison has at last invented na in strument dangerous to the pence of society.., It is called the telciscopo phone, and is nothing more than a sort of trumpet which is fitted to the car and makes the faintest sound audible at incredible distances. By its aid a man talking in a whisper has been distinctly heard by nu auditor on the other sido of a field two miles across. What tin instrument that, will be to learn the opinion of your neighbors. -- It is the opinion among some of the medical fraternity, that in this Terri tory mutton' is the purveyor of tape worm to num. We do not know that this opinion is founded on any accu rate experiments, but suppose it. tobo n general conclusion, drawn from the fact that sheep meat forms much the largest portion of the food of the peo ple, ami that a comparatively small quantity of fresh pork is consumed. A little scientific investigation in tho mat tur would be valuable. It is more important even than the investigation of otlicitil corruption. . topper. The prospects now are that a new de parture is at hand in the construction of vessels, in the inevitable return (in part at least) to the old method of wooden ships, or rather lo the com bination of wood nml iroti;biit in such a innnner, that all vessels will require copper bottoms. This, with the stea dy increase in the use of copper, 11 the manufacture of cartridges nnd munitions of war, w ill again create a great demand for this metal and a considerable, if not a large, increase in price. The copper and silver mines of New Mexico arc not liable to soon become valueless.
