Where was the v.ist treasure of weiilth, which it is claimed exceeded anything then pog.-eKsed by any European monarch, buried? Some fay it was buried beneath the witters of Lake Texcoeo, nnd others claim on the piesent site of the Ituibide hotel. Wherever it was ttorcd its hiding place til 1 reiuuius dead to the woild. Piobbly in no other country in the iini ver. e are ther nior buried treasures than in llexioo. Nearly cfeiy week cued of unearthing treasures are reported in scum part of the republic. Banks in Mexico are of recent origin, which fact, with the former insecurity from revolutions, proba bly in. a measure uceounl for the present Tndinfj of to much coin and j.-nelry.

That by death, su Iden de partures an J other causes Ihs vaults with their treasure in tune should have leen lout to the woiTd is not mi.uculous. The latest diwovery of a treasure han j'l-Luewn made in this city. A woman of advanced yeai-s has lired !cr a short time in a room in (fie old fitina convent, on Medina ttrect. . E'.ie paid no lent, her quarter be liijr given her by a chant ible person whoe name is not kuowu.

It is said that a gentlruian who learned ot the discovery made by :b0 old woman purchased the land where the treasure is supposed Is be buried, uud has already commenced huntinii for it. I-eader: . Jiuiu(r the. year 18S8 the amount of bullioii. shipped from VVhite Oaks wasSliiO.OOO.' Au avrrace of eighty six men were employed each day, iuelud iiirf pi'espectors, which, at an average of S'J per day each, would, in round numbers, aggregate 580,708 per year. Some of the mines observe the Sabbath.-so that iu this estimate but U13 working days tire count ed, llutsome of the mines are worked 3C5 days, so that our figure on price of labor are low rather than high. Our ore is not all tree milling. Tailings are being held to concéntralo. As soou as we get a railroad these tailinga will return as much lo the owners as they secured from the workings of tha stamp mills. Stockman: The aew school law of Ari 1011a provide for compelling children of school ago (0 allend school. It also for bids the employment m the public schools of any teacher who has not ben a resident of the territory for three months; prefer ence in all cases being given applicants living in the county where the school is lo cated. Governor Zuliclc haa pardoned S.)l Earth, who was seutenced to ths pnntrtiUitry for twelve years aud eight mouths for forgery. Bartb was chairman of the board of su pervisors of Apacha county, and Gorged I about 8 10,000 worth of warrauts. j AFACHE CONVICTS DYING. !

Upon their arrival they were put at work, the making ol chairs being their task. This meant close confinement, and in a shoit timo several of the lndiaus weré more or less ill. They became gloomy, and their leader, Captain Jack, frequently said that all would die iu the place, because an Indian could not drit.k such water nor stand such a (límale. Hb prediction rectus likely to be verified. A month ago Loco Jim died of consumption nnd he was followed two days ago by Ub ilth-kah, who also had consumption. Two more are now in the hospital suíferitií from the same disease, and the prison physicians state that all are becoinii'g similar)' a Heeled by the climate. The remaining Indians are despairing and hopeless. They expect to die, and un til that release comes a'lernately chafe and n.ope under confiuenu i;t. The opinion of the ph.tsiciau's that nil will tile of consumption had led the prison authorities to take some steps with u view of seeming thvir removal. Their pardon or change ot location has been recommend ed, and it is thought likely that the gov ernment GÍfichils will order their transfer to some other prison. A NZW OOSOlíaUTLM LIQUID.
