" 4 frtm the ta Vc dr) Pueblo. Governor Princ is antiricg in hie ef forte to preserve tbe trad itions and customs of the early Spanish and1 Meiican rnlu. His latet step in this line ie demonstrated by the curious reception ball that he ie at present fitting up in one of the old, his toric, adobe rooms of tbe old palace, which we were permitted, tbroogb bis eouratey. to examino. 1 he furniture that line the hall is of th quaint style in vogue in the good old time of "my King and master;" while tbe piituies hung in the walls are crude hut artistio oil paintings, by tb fol lowers and imitators of the school of Vel asquez nnd Murilla, Madonaa of heaven ly sweetness, patriarehs, saints and cherubs, whose somber tints, affected by tbe old masters, lend tbem a mysterious and bumble spirituality that inspires re spect to the beholder. Governor Prince's collection is in itself a unique and costly museum. Once in a while his eicellency, brings to light some rare old object, whicb was oi.lv thought to have existed wiihin the.vast scope ot tradition or mythology. We applaud the romantic idea of the gov ernor, in stiiving to form a link, by plac ing in vivid contrast, the customs and works of tbe misty and haty past, with those of the progrssive present.
