N JTrenaont . at CewTbo Meaasphls, El Paso and Pact do Ballroad Com- pauy. ' ( Editor Courier-Journal : The special correspondent of the Courier-Journal, at Washington, gives ns some hints as to the management of this enterprise which are decidedly interest ing to parties who are acquainted with statements heretofore made by them, and with the actual status of that concern. This special correspondent is, or at least he says be is, a director in the scheme. Certainly he takes a great interest in it if the piles Of stock be is represented to have in it are not exaggerated. It is, wo think, well to examine into the status of the immense corporation since it is now before the Congress of the United States for indorsement and assistance. The comDaor was incorporated wior to the war by . the- Legislature of the State of Texas, with liberal donations ot land and a moneyed assistance from the State, and its line located through a rich sec tion of country, its charter subject to cer tain limitations and restrictions. Prior to the war it presented its claim for ten section, of land to the mile, representing it bad graded, ready for the superstruc ture, sixty miles of road. By the assist ance of the then Governor these lands would have passed into the possession of the company, ban it not been tor tuo commissioner of the land office, who re fused to issue the patents therefor, on the ground that none of the grading had beon completed. Ad examination revealed the fact that the so-called grading con sisted of some balf-dosen furrows run Kv plows for the distanoe 'claimed. a The road remained in this condition till the end of the war, the officers of the road maintaining that their charter and fran chises were intact and fully secured, but during the session of the State Conven tion they bad a declaration introduced, providing that 'the years of the war should not be counted against the com pany as affecting its character. This was referred to the Committee of Internal Improvement This committee laid tbe matter before the Attorney Waneral ot the State, who reported that the Memphis, El Paso and Pacific Railroad Company had forfeited its charter and had oo !eiil status whatever in the Stale of Texan, whereupon tbe convention doctored against giving tbe relief asked auJ threw open tbe reserved lands of the compuny to location and sale. This, then, is the condition of the com pany which went to France and, accord ing to tbe statements of its directors, no two of which were alike, raised in cash and 'had to their credit in bank from three to thirteen 'millions of dollars in gold a road without a charter or legal status, without a mile built or a car run ning, add under the management of Gen. Fremont. Fremont did go to France, and whilst there made representations which, if trae, would have entitled bim to credit; but, unfortunately, Minister Washburne exposed tbe fraud and pricked the bubble. Gen. Fremont publicly advertised, and I have now before me tbe Monde Illus Ve, of the 18th of May, 1869, in which it is averted that the bonds of tbe Mem phis, El Paso and Pacifio Riilroad Com pany were indorsed by the Government of tbe United States. Tbe matter was referred by Minister Washburne to our Government, and the answer given that tbe Government bad net " knowledge of anv such corporation." - Tnis was clear ease of aa attempt to obtain money under false pretences. And yet to day this company is issuing its stock all through the United States "thick as leaves in Vallambrosa," and without any valuo whatever. The cor poration has as yet no legal status what; ever. In the State of Texas, as I have shown, the Attorney General of the S:aie has declared against it, and certifies that the company bas no legal status, and as yet bo act bas passed Congress giving even a "local habitation and a name." Whatever work has been done in Texas has been done under another charter and a different name. -' I publicly assert here that their stock bas no value that the whole matter is a fraud, and that the whole benefit to be derived from the same is by a favored few, who, like General Fremont, can afford to board at the Arlington House and pay 150,000 per annum for the same. And I would further state that the name of the writer of this is at the ser vice of any one interested in the same that he is a snaa of property, and chal lenges any contradiction of the facts asserted; that all the statements made are susceptible of proof,' and will be laid, in due time, before tbe Congress of the United 8lates.

While the bells were ringing, and only good gods were iroasd in the air, the mourners came out in tbe street. The coffin was brought oat and placed on the sidewalk, draDrd with red, white and green olotba . Tbe mourners, of whom there were about a done all women bnt one were dressed in white robes, with white cowls on their heads. The hair on tbe women's beads was disheveled. Sev eral of then wept '0 a gee nine manner, but the rest howled in such a way aa to justify tbe statement made by some in tN.odance that they were hired mourn- I.AHQEST fJITYllMJIIL4TION. ft- : . I Goods in the THOSE i "i i.i.H 'I u ' ers. When the coffin was put down the mourners filed arour.d it several times. weepiDg, wailiog,- and throwing up their bands, and then all oowea tnemseives with their faces to the ground, and re mained in that position several hours. On tbe sidewalk, below the coffin, were arranged three or four wide tables, and on these were deposited the sacrificial of ferings. These were five roasted hogs full size with tips of tinsel on tbe ears and wreathed about their snouts. Three sheep, skinned and laid on Urge pans, occupied prominent places. Then there were ehiokens roasted whole, with mauy colored candies melted and run over them, in imitation of robes. They were set upright in edible chairs, with their necks straightened, and fantastio covers on their heads. Their claws were bent up and made to grasp spears, darts and exorcising wands. Several roosters bad beeu baked till they were brown, and yet the feathers on their wings, the wattles on their necks and the crests on their heads were not even wilted. These, too, were ornamented with tinsel and paper. Several large crabs from Meigg's wharf lay in the center of the table, and were set eff with ornaments like all tba rest of the efferings. " There were numerous pyramids of fruit also apples, pears, grapes and nuts; pyramids of high colored, greasy-looking cakes; loaf imi tations of lambs, goats, ducks, etc., covered with melted confectionery; piles of Joss sticks and sacred tapers, with rows of them burning, smoking and sputtering on the borders of the table; strips of red, white and yellow paper bearing mysterious characters; ,vdull looking images at ssveral points; and everywhere tinsel, paper, smoking fumes and insufferable -stench. Tbe streets were blocked by Ibo throng of Chios men, nanroes and "superiors:" but in the crovd, nex'. the eoffin and free-lunch table of tba gods, women predominated. They were a degraded and diseased looking set for the most part, and seemed to be rivitad in their tracks by idle curiosity- A line of hucie, a rank of badgering hickmun occupied the aids of tbe street, wailing for their "loads." ' At 12 m- an old white-headed woman came out of the house,bearing in her arms a huge load of tinselled paper. She threw it on the pavement and taking a lighted Joss stick set the mass on fire. Then other wemen brought out some other curious-looking images about two feet high, and supposed to be representations of several prominent auti-coolieites. These tbey cast into the flamss, evidently believing that possession of them wonld certainly appease tbe malignant gods, and give Ah Poy a safe entree into the land of the good. - At 1 p m. tbe ccffio was placed in the hearse, the mourners got into the hacks, and the melancholy procession of Pagans and Christians proceeded to Loue Moun tain, where the remains will be entombed till the sailing of the next China steamer. Seward A . Mexican i Pnbllcaifon bushes Over tbe Oreat American Diplomat. ' 1 . - ' From the 8igio Diss y Kuavo, of Mexico. ' . Tho arrival of Mr. S sward in this cap ital is the moat noteworthy and remark able evost of the year (or Mexico. ' This great American diplomat has performed a mighty journey in a relatively short time.- Within tfe oou fines of the past century it would have required three years to have made this circuitons jour ney from New York to Mexico. Passing' tbe legendary West of his own country, he has alrsady contemplated all the ones of the world with their varied produc tions. He has been where he could treat with tbe five colors intowhioh the human race is classed. He has seen the ex tremes of civilisation and of the temper atnre of the globs. Between New York, Alaska and Mex ico there is nearly everything for which the mind msy long. There are Ca manches, ice, gold, Mormons, Chinese, beeiv tigefi philosophers, artists,-debauchees, flugar-cane, quicksilver, coal, iron, pearl, rubies, emeralds, topaz, opals, bisons, wild horses, Aztecs, Span iards and Mexicans, aboct which a book may be written full ss interesting as the " Thousand and One Nights." Mr. Seward will probably let the book remain impressed open his great -mind only until tbe proper day comes for its- publi cation. Ha will soon return to be saluted by and to salute his neighbors at Auburn. This trip appears to him as ordinary as tbcugb it were a holiday at Niagara. In our country there are few, we hope, who do not realize the glorious figure represented by this great statesman in our history. Grand at tbe name of 8ew ard stands npon the roll of the legion of honor, where are embossed the names of tbe great actors in the United Slates war of tbe rebellion, to us, to Mexicans all, his name stands still higher. When the darksome days of oor war against the schemes of Earcpa bung their black man tle like a funeral pall over tbe oradle of liberty, Mr. Seward said to arrogant Na poleon, "Away from oar continent" Tba crett-iallen army ef France rolled op its banners and marched down the slopes of the Cordilleras to embark from Mexico on their ignominious retreat to sunny France. Ths real hero of that achieve ment is among a - He has been honored in his march np ths Pscifie coast and through the valleys of Guadalajara, Leoa, Celava, and Qaeretaro.
