It did not like an item in the Gazette, stating that the nucicnt political and internal history, true or apocryphal, of Colfax county unci the Maxwell Company m us of no in terest. That was possibly nut the best word. It may be of interest ; but is not pertinent. Scandalous and in jurious charges against any person public or private, arc always read It is a human weakness to desire knowledge of people's faults and mis deeds, and the voice of detraction will always find listeners. Tihon made much interesting reading about Beecher; but no one supposed that he had anv other object, in view than to revenue a personal irrtulirc. It was a personal matter whh-h the publi liked to read about. Thus the thiev ing squatters &lde of the old Maxwell Company troubles does not seem to be of any ,'rcat living interest to the public further than that which al wavs attaches to real or fictitious rharges against the reputation and good name of any person. The old oflicers of the Maxwell Company, Collison, Heed, Klkins and Longwill arc private citizens. If they committed any crimes, the courts if Colfax are open and they can be tried. A judicial investigation would be a proper subject of public interest. The juries arc certainly not packed in their favor. That is the place for trial. If the evidence is not sufficient to convict them it is of no importance, os the parties intended to be cflcdcd by it aro private citizens. An at tempt is made, of course, to connect Gov. Axtell's name with this ancient history. lie is a public officer The Whole batch of charges were preferred against him, at "Washington, two years ago, when the wounds of Col fax county were fresh and bleeding. The charges were thrown out its non sensical and he was exonerated completely. That would seem to in dicate something wrong in the siory. Tor these reasons the Xcws A Press will excuse us, then, if we do not lind its rcvclatiotis wonderfully absorb ing. AV'c don't want to interfere in the least with laudable efforts to bring criminals to justice; but would like to ask, (not on behalf of the accused, for we r.re not authorized) fur the benefit of the public, which the edi tor says is interested and desires all the facts; were not many of thoo charges against Collinson, KcimI, nnd Longwill whispered around as fir bark as lf73? "Were they believ ed, or were there mitigating circum stances? If yea; did not the editor of the Xews t Press move right along in unison with these hightoned etiglish autocrats and support and vole for Elkius, Longwill and Co., nnd don't the poll books show fhfi last meniionod fnet? If yea; was the editor bulldozed or did he over look unall indiosyncrasies for the sake of interest.,, or wa he ti self ap pointed detective, laying low to get information for future exposure, or lias lie lately become virttiou? A categorical answer will probably in terest the public and aid in showing up the Maxwell company. Iieelliiea. In another column we advocate the re-election of Hon. T. Homero to Congress. It seems to us that no titter man can be found, but since the article wus written nnd appeared in the Spanish edition, Mr. Romero has come in from hi home, and author ises us to state that he will not be a candidate under any circumstances for a re-election. That decision of course spikes our guns; but ullhoiigli he declines, we are none the less con vinced that he i the proper man for th'! pliiCf!. From Lincoln. A private letter under date of July 6th trivcB the follow ins news from the at of war: Hell is popping around here! I am informed that three fights occurred on the Rio Ruidoso on the lstinst.; one. man killed, one wounded and nigger Geo. Washington prisoner. Cope land is also prisoner. Peppin is sheriff by appointment of Gov. Axtell. Buck I'owell is duly appointed deputy sher iff, and is out with 13 men. McSwcen Is in the field. He and some 15 to 20 men are at Chisum's ranch. Buck and his crowd invested the house yester day all day. Numerous shots were fired; nobody hurt. How it will all terminate, no man can tell. Wish it was ended. ' if A YoiniffGirl Nboots Herself, Mattie Matthews comniited suicide to-day by shooting herself with a navy pistol because she was encicnt, n young man in Denver being the father to her child. She was living with A. II. Duning on Becker's raucli, up Bear creek, seven miles from this city. Her folks live at Mt. Vernon, in Jef ferson county, and she has lived with the Dunings about one year. She was a very pretty girl, aged sixteen years, and of nn allectionate, kindly disposition. The coroner of Jefferson county has been dispatched for, the suicide being in that couutv. Denver J imcs. This irl seems to have died with sealed lips, nnd no one can blame her greatly for suicide under the circums tances. But the unknown man who wrought her ruin should lie haunted through life by her spectre, and if there is no general hell a special one should be prepared for him. That is one crime which merits capital pu nishment. THc Glorian Fourth in liirngo, Willi tln glorian left uir. Junior Lug Yvrjds Gazette: I have spent the 4th of July in nin ny places. 1 have spent it in the east; 1 have spent it in the west. I have spent it north; I have spent it south. 1 have spent it in war and I have spent it in peace. I have spent it with family pie-nie gatherings, and I have spent it in the great celebration; but I never spent it with so little en joyment as I have to-day. There is really no celebration in the city. There are pic-nics, excursion anil base ball games in abundance; but what is a pie-nie or steamboat excur sion among strangers, and as to base ball, I don't care to take any specula tion in that. But don't get the idea that Chicago is a dull place. It is only dull for a stranger from tho far off llano. to be hero on the 4th. It has a population, according to the directory, just pub lished, of over half a million souls. The pic-nics aud excursions are all out of the city; and to have seen the steamboats and car loads of people go ing out this morning, it would seem that no one would be left. But no one is missed, except the very ones you want to see. They are all gone, and that is the reason why the day has been so dull to me. The city goes on with its usual bus tle and stir, with the addition of wasting powder in the streets, by boy-men aud men-boys, quite to the annoyance of many. Also the hors es, street cars, omnibuses, etc., are generally plumed with little Hags ami the stars nnd stripes float over a few prominent buildings. Since I wrote you last, I have fin ished my visiting in Michigan, cross ed Lake Michigan in the beautiful Mcnnicr Corona, came to this city, went into Wisconsin, as far ns La Crose, and returned to Chicago the second t inte. With the many pleasant visits made in Wisconsin. I might name one made with Rev. S. Gorman as among the most pleasant, l'cv. Mr. (orinan is a Baptist Minister, and spent ten j ear in New Mexico. He went in the year 1S.VJ and left in the- year lt'J. lie did a great deal of hard work in our Territory, and very much good, as all missionaries in that field will testily, lie lost his wife in Santa i'e. The Baptist Board ithdrew her missionaries during the war. It was then that this Brother, with nn ox train and his motherless children set out from Santa Fo nnd crossed the plains to his home. He has not lost his interest in his work; he sighs to return and resume his missionary la bors with the Mexican people, and is only prevented from doing so by hav ing n large family and perhaps his advanced nrc. Surely this ought to teach us, w ho nrc on the ground, not to grow "weary in well doing." Two months from home, and hard work, visiting nnd soliciting help for our school, has obtained on subscrip tion about too. Two weeks in New Mexico and not half so hard work brought me on subscription nearly WK). I do wonder if I've got to go back nnd finish this thing up among the merchants, mechnuies, fnnners, miners nnd cow boys iu New Mexico. I mint sy I hsve never been union g a more liberal people than we have in New Mexico, when we can get at them right. I am so anxious to get up the pro posed building, nt La Junta, and thus prepnre a place where our poor boys and poor young men can board themselves flud enjoy the benefit of our school. I must hurry home. Thos. IIaiiwood. The l.otiiavllle rnre. Mollic McCarthy was sunstrnek at Louisville, and that's why she broke down in the first heat. When she had accomplished three and three quarter miles, she was observed to stagger, and it was feared she would fall. When her friends ran to her she was as dry ns a bone, nit hough her .rkin was intensely hot. But by care ful handling she soon recovered, and the prcspiration dripped from her in streams. Ten Broeck, on the contra ry, grew worse from the time he was unsaddled, nnd in an hour from the time the heat was completed was in ns bad a shape us it is possible to ima gine n horse, -nnd for a time it was doubtful whether he would survive. Whiskv was freely applied to his limbs and loins, and four men fanned him, while other sponged out his mouth and nostrils, and did everything pos sible to alleviate the agony which he was undergoing. After a while he be gan to rally and at 10 o'clock was out of danger. Harper declares he will never run Ten 13roetk again, as this was n nrettv close call for his net. ! Tim Mr(!nrtliY men were verv iinvioiis to arrange for another race at Balti more, or some ot her favorable ground, but Harper could not be persuaded to risk it. One account of the race says that just after passing the half mite pole in the last mile, Mollic seemed to shut up like a knife, and was soon twenty lenghth in the rear, Her tongue was hanging out and she was running like a tired dog. As Ten Broeck ran around the turn and into the stretch, his rider looked behind, but seeing that the mare was becoming worse off at every stride, did not hasten the horse. When it was seen Ten Broeck was well ahead, the crowd broke into cheers, which were redoubled as the seconds went by and the mare's nose failed to show around the turn at the head of the stretch yelling like-demons as Ten Broeck cantered under the wire in 8:ll.i;t-4. As soon ns he had passed the Judge's stand no attempt was made to restrain the crowd, which soon completely tilled the home stretch, and after the rider had weig hed, and Ten Broeck was being led back to his stable, thousands fought ami struggled for a chance to slap the old horse on the back, while Harper mean while was being carried around on the shoulders of enthusiastic friends the old man smiling nway like clock-work, and endeavoring to reach the ground. Oeurcr Tiiitrs. Another The mail from Clifton to Silver City was taken in last Tuesday evening when within about ten miles of town. The robber (one man) evidently mis took the outfit for the Globe City express, as he at first demanded bul lion, nnd upon receiving assurance from the driver that nothing of the kind was on board, inquired. '"What in h 1 is this coach anyhow?" The driver fold him it was tl.e Clifton mail: and thereupon was met w iih the demand: "Well throw the mail out." The roadagent then proceded to inves tigate the sack, but soon pieeeiving that it contained nothing but private letter-, hailed tho driver, who had not jet passed beyond hearing, and fold It i in to come back for his mail. We saw the mutilated packages as they were brought into the Silver City oiiice and the torn envelopes were, for the most part stamped Safl'ord and Clifton. Dr. Bailey subsequently adjusted the letters to their respective envelopes and is of opinion that none of the mail matter was taken or des troyed. d runt Count llcriilil. -- . .
