There, ate some, indeed many, who proiess t dislike political reading matter, yet who can't tro ball a day without talking pontics, mid the fact is, moro can be g call ed from reading the opinions of others than through one's own v.. cal organs. Ami, there are many who hold to the opinion that tin enttriiun ideas touching politics, while in reality t ey are Out hous ing prejudices, and fact and preju dice cannot assimilate. This latter fact being agreed, how important it is that we see to it that reason is not warped bv prejudice. There is probably no man on earth, however intellectual, who has not found cause to change his opinion on important matters, which, in his mind's original Igra.Mi, he honestly thought reilect- !ed truth, while mature considera tion proved to be erronuous. These chances are usually wrought out by reading. The opinion o everybody should be received, can vased a::d digested, and it the mind be permitted to thus rocteive it, and it prove more cogent than one previously entertained, the mind which throws out ot it's realm the false, and accepts the true, is stronger and nobler than the one winch rejects the force of convincing argument and holds last to preconceived, illy -grounded opinions. All great questions which have been evolved owe their otigin to investigation. Had even body held tast to original teachings tin: dark ages would nevsr have given way to the light ot progress. Su perstition and witchcraft would yet be sovereigns. There are but !l v of our readers who do not re member when pulpit, press and forum declared human slavery to be an institution iiir-titutcd byCuid and worthy being blessed and nur tured by man. Those who argued to the contrary were held to be ''hoodoiis'' in and of society, and trouble-brewers in communities. Rut strong minds, vailiant hearts, and unseilish spirits kept up the agitation ot the question, and now the champion of slavery are evin i rarer than were those of eoiial 1 i j rights t.iree -ir tour decades since. I This change is largely due to read i . . j ing, tor be it remembered that in , t j io halcyon davsot slavery, dur 1 " I ing the administration oí resi dent Van liureii, the New York Tribune was, by order ot the post uiiice department, excluded from the C S. ni'.iils running south of Mason and Dixon's line, said 'pa per b ..nig thus tabooed solely be cause it denounced slavery us a blight upon our country's name, and a stain upon our National es cutcheon. Ry and bye such em bargo was removed, and albeit tree speech was lonf restrained, public sentiment became aroused through I he public press, and on it's awakening the popular mind christaiized tho lact that slavery was an oil'ense to God and a dis grace to man. Tho Press opened the eyes ot the mind, and mouths bttoie sealed wire i nl -irked, and Truth rose with vigor, while error hey wounded, writhed to death without worshippers. It is every American's duty to study the politics ot his country to con hitury "lending down from the days of our forefathers to tho present, and compare tho political lines which shaped the rebellion, resisted and crushed it, and tho measures growing out of the inter íneme struggle, then choose sides, exercising care that you uve ns close to the starry banner as it is possible i to crowd. With the watchword, "(io.land Coun'rv," and doing your duty as iiiivarpcd reason points duty to you. politic.-! will prove an easy servant, and a beinlicent aid in the lipbuilding "! our governmental fabric. IT. STANTON. a Model Woman. Tho facts cited in the following, which we clip from tho Albuquer que Democrat, are substantially those 'presented in the Licapku a few months ago, and we reproduce them in their hew and well fitting dress : Eight years ao Mr. and Mrs.U. R. Harbor went to Lincoln county, in this territory, and took up a ranch on the public dmiin or rather took up tho land uuon winch to make a ranch. To economize their resources, Mr. Uarber, who is an attorney, went to Lincoln and opened a law ollicc, while his wife took charge of tho work ot im proving tho ranch, and lrom that time to this she Jias had absoluto con'rol of the place. She planned and superintended tho construc tion of all tho buildings on the place, designated the location of I he fences, corrals, and all the necessary works of tins character, at tho samo time overseeing the cowboys, masons, carpenters nnd tarm bands. Not long aga tho agent of an eastern company, at tracted by the fine location and the able management displayed in the business recommended it io his principals as a good investment, and the. consequence was that a half interest in the place was sold to the company, the number ot cattle was increased to ."i.unO head, and Mrs. Rarbcr was employed as general manager ot the entire busi ness. At the samo timo that she was purting up the buildings ami making the necessary improve ments for the cattle ranch, she also had a torco of men at work improv ing another portion ot tho land for a farm, from which she is now raising fino crops of grain and veg etables, more than enough to sup ply all her own employes and ani mals, and lias fruit and berries of all kinds i-i profusion. She has the most perfect order and system in eveiy department of the busi ness, and has rendered a valuable seryice to ranchmen generally by demonstrating the faetthat cowboys can be gentlemen, (runa" have been entirely dispensed with, the "cow men'" wear clean shirts, take oft their hats when they como into the bouse, wash thtir faces, comb their hair, and put on their coats when they come to the taolo. and otherwise respect the customs of civilization. Airs. Rarber is a model tor her sex, and has shown that some wcinen, at least, can manage large and important busi ness interests just as successfully as members of the rougher se.v Fort Stanton. N. AL July '-'5, 1SS. The annual competition for jdac os on tli o Department, liiilo Team takes place at Fort. Vingate, N. AL, f.n the i.:th inst. Sergeants I'rank Ifayden, Troop " D," and Arthur II. Rriwn, ot Troop " L," 6th Cavalry, and pri vate John (iollaghcr, Company 1!, lfith Infantry, have been selected, from their respective Companies. as competitors from tins post, and left here, by stage, 1 on the lSth inst., for Ft. W'ngate. Lieutenant 11. 1. Paddock. !th ( 'avalry, left here on the l!)th., for tho iuine point, on duty in connec tion with the competition. Dr. Taylor and Lt. Scott left here on the ISth, for an outing destination, tho Ruidoso, where they will join a large party of El Pasoians, rusticating on that pret ty stream, liiscatorily inclined. For tho benefit of your El Paso readers I would hint that they should meekly submit to any fish stories that may be sprung on ein by this party on their return home. I would inform them that exagger ation, as regards : the possibilities ot the Ruidoso, in a piscatorial sense, is impossible. It's possibil ities are only limited by the size of the stream;5where it is narrow and shallow the small fish may bo hooked ; where wide nnd deep iish in proportion eagerly point their noses out of tho water to gulp down tho tempting bait and book behind it as soon as within reach. What I am telling is, howevor,not from personal experience, but I have it, from parties who pride themselves on tlieir consistency, and whose voracity has never been questioned. These hayo mudo statements in my presence (my credulous nature perhaps assisting them I in being perfectly honest with me,) to which I gave implied, credence. From their statements, (which, tor want of sínico I must condenso into one sentence,) I am led to believe that tho luscious trout can be caught in the Ruidoso ih any size, from that, of the frisky minnow to a halibut, to suit tho taste of the piscator aud the means of transportation at hand to con vey thent to tho fishers' home. So let 'the doubting Thomases of El Paso keep in the shade, tor, no doubt, the party on returning homo will provide itself with docu mentary evidence to substantiate their assertions. The arrival of the Paymaster on tho '20th inst., sent a rillle ot ex citement through the camp. Pay ments were made on the Ü 1st., and tho dull monotony of garrison lite wus lilted tor several days thereaf ter. The extensive smilo sur rounding tho features ot our uncle, Sam. Terrell, conclusively shows which way the dinero was drifting. Col. Alorrow returned to the post and assumed command July L'íírd, looking all the better for his trip east. IlorsKr.
