HILTON YOUNG. ui:iisti:k anoxvu. r. William !fj Unnipim NimIi Web-ti-f. Literary Work, Willi lllstlwn. Mr. Vi cluter, no doubt, had the )iest command of language ot nny American author prior to our" ilny. .

Noah nut er lacked fur n word by lili h tncxpiyss lilieudf. Hi! w.is n brainy man and n good speller. II would III hciiinip mo at this !nle day to ciillelsc Mr. Webster' greul work n work that Is now In almost every llbr.iry, school-room, and counting-room In tho land. It l n Brent book. I only hope that had Mr. YVcb sler lived ho would have been eipially fair In hlscrltlelsm of my bonk. 1 hate to comparo my own liooks with thoso o( Mr. Webber, Iwcnmo It may seem egotistical in mo to point out Iho pood points In mv llternrv labors; but 1 have often heard it safd, nnd su do not statu It solely tipon my own ro sponsihllltj. that Sir. Webster' luniks do nut retain the tulca-st of tho tender nil Iho wny through. He has tried to Introduce loo many character-!, mid so wo cannot follow them all tho way through. It Is a good hook to pick up nnil while nway nn Idlo hour with, perhnpsj but no one would cling to It nt night till the lira wont out, chained to the thrilling plot anil the glowing career of Its hero. Therein consists the great difference between Mr. Webster and myself. A friend of nilno nt Sing Sing oiieo wroto mo that from tho moment he got hold of my book ho never left his room until ho llnlshed It. He seemed chained to the spot", ho snld; nnd If yoij can't be lieve n convict, who Is entirely out of politics, who In tho niinio of (icorgo Washington can you bullet oP Mr. Webster was most nssureilly n brilliant writer, nnd I hnvo discovered In his later editions M8.000 words, no two of which nro alike. TliN.shovvs great lltu-ncy nnd versatility, it Is tiue, but He need somcthliigelse. Thercnil er waits In vnln to ee thrilled by tho author's wonderful wuril-paliiting. There is tint a tin ill in the whole tome. 1 hail lioaid mi much of Mr. Webster that when I end his bonk I confess. I was disappointed. It Is i-uhl, method ical, nnd ill. passionate In lite extreme. As I vild. however. It Is a good lx.uk In pick up for the purpn-e ut whlilng nun, an Idle mouienl, mid no one should start out on n long journey without -Mr. Wob-tcr's l.ile In his pock et. It has broken the monotony of many n tedious trip fur inc. Mi-. Web-ter's "Speller" was n ttork of less pretensions, perhaps, and jet It had an Immense sale. Ilight jcara ago this book had reached n sale o'f 40.000, 000, nnd yet It had tho same grave de fect. It was disconnected, eold, prosy, and dull. I lend ll fur ycnis, nnd at lat beoamu u elnso student of Mr. Webster's style: yet 1 never found but one thing in this book, fur which theru jjocnis to have been such a pel feet stam pede, that was own ordinarily interest ing; nnd thai was a little gem. It was mi thrilling In Its details, mid so diame trically dill'dcnt fioin .Mr. Web-ter's style, that I have often wondered who ho, got to w rite it for him. It related In the ili-covorv ofnboj hv an elderly gentleman In the crutch of an mice. I nil !ipile.ree. and the feeling nf biltcrnes, and nulinu-ily that sprang up til that liiiio between the boy and the elderlv gentleman." Though I Iuimi Ik'i-u a elo-ii student of Mr. Wo si er for ears, I it sis free to snj, and I do not vvl-li to do an Injii tlco In a gival man In doing mi. that liis ideas of llteraluio ami my own are entirely dissimilar, l'us-ibly hi, book has a little larger sale than mine, but that makes mi diflcrcncc. When I write n buok It must engage til i Inter est of the reader and shuw Mime plut to it. It must not bo jerky in lis stvlo and m altering In lis statements. I know it Is a great letup, nlion to nilln u book thai will htf, hut wo should haw a higher object than that. I do nut wl-h tu do nu Itiju-t i-o to n man who lias done mi much for the world, mid one who could spill the longest word without hesitation; hut I speak of thcfii tilings just in I would expect 'co,io to cnticl-o my work. If wo nsplro to monkey Willi tho literati of our day wo must expect to bo criti cised. '1 hat's Iho wnv I look nt It. HiixNvk. 1 S. I might also stalo that No.ili Webster was n member of the Legisla ture of Massncliu-ctts at one lime, ami, though I ought nut tu throw It up to him nt this date, I think It nothing more thnn right Hint the pulil'o should know the truth.

Capitalists seeking Investment are specially Invited to nail the same : Moxti iikv, Mexico, January 27, IteCfc Colonel J. VV. llntitlry.HHll .htnnlo. Toils. )i:n Sin Wo have selected. In Iho Slate of ramaullpns, llepublloor.Mextco, In the San Carlos mountains, valuable leads of silver ore. These researches have been made by parties of life-lung experience In opening nnd operating mines In some of the Slates of the Amer ican Union. The same parly has boon constantly In the mountains of .Mexico since May, 18."'2. and has made valuable dlscovetles, and has the mines already "denounced" from the Mexican Govern ment as the sclentllla discoverer, and Is now upon such "denouncements'' In full and completo possession, put so by the .Mexican Government. These mines are iinprecedentedly rich, regular llssuro veins, which grow richer tho lower they sink Into the earth. The ores assay from SIM to tho ton nnd upwnrds. Wood nnd wnter are abundant all around 1 lie mines. The crude bullion can be ship ped to England, without duly, on through bills of lading, from Monterey, nt about the same rates of freight ns to New York. A ten-ton engine, smelter and fixtures wilt cost about f mu) laid down and ex pense In setting up and getting ores, coal, etc., and all tho works In full blast added sny J30UO to $ 1000. After this t he mines and machinery will bo self-sustaining and the protltsylcld nbundnntly. To suuininrlzo as follows: Ten tons of crude ore, at SI00 to ton (far below low est estimate of valuo of ore) we have emtio bullion, valued at mines SlhW; from one day's run nt nil expense of not over S-Vi, nil told. This bullion Is run out Into Ml pounds pig sliver and lead, which the Mllmos will advance upon In Monterey nt Iho rate off 2 per pig. Out of ten inns, one day's, run (21 hours) we 01111 have 2M) pig liars of bullion, which, landed In Monterey, no can ob tain an advance upon of 2, which will make the product uf the works about $-O0per day, nl lowest estimate one third value of Its products. This Is what Is now being done 75 miles this side, where the ore Is badly mixed with base metal. For the money put In lo buy nnd estab lish the machinery above nniiieil we will give one-third of ail Iho net products of the mines a full one-third Interest lu tho mines worked. We have 1111 experienced smelter one of S3 years' experience to go In chnrgo of Iho works; one good engineer to run I lie machinery, nnd the balance or the labor cheap. Can get charcoal furnished at the smelter fur S I per cargo ofiKO pounds, and get the bullion hauled lo .Monterey for $1 per cargo of :suo pounds, n distance ori.iO miles. This Is nil 11 will take In get works In full blast, under the control of men who know what mines and minerals are. So speculation In tho matter! No slock to sell I No mines to pack oil on anybody 1 The value Is know 11 nnd rent lcd,nnd lime, experience nnd money spent lu obtaining these vast lends of rich ores are simply put In us working capital along with any one who desires to Invest with his countrymen. If n desire to see the property, will haw parries Investing visit same, by rail to Monterey, thence lo Linares by stnee or overland conveyance, then M miles Into the mountains.
