WEDNESDAY. OCTOBER 20, 1880. CUAYMaS. An Intfrsbl'.ng Litter The Hottest ;Part of ul the World-No Good Flace in tlc Summer Time. A Tuwii of the Future. lwlul Coi rpiiiltiite ef ihu tlaaette. Fautor Gazette: Before leaviwg Las V gas many promises were exac ted from ma to write all about the country when I got here, to see for tiurselves, that the truth might be known as near as .osible about the termiinw of the new railroad. How ever the only sure way to know "all about" a place is to route and seo as views on t'.ie prospect of a place disa gree. We reached here the middle of August when the heat was intense, ninety-eight in the shade in the day time and the same at night. It seemed to tne as hot as Yuma is re ported tobe. When you look at the map you think, "why Guaymas can't be so hot, it's not in the tropic?, right on the gulf, aud they must get a sea breeze." I said the same two months ago bul I found Guaymas hotter than the tropics for this reason : The town is built on a sandy strip lying along the bay, surrounded, hemmed in, shut tip by cliffs are quite barren, so the sun's rays ore reflected upon the sandy streets and bare walls with double force till the eyes are pained o look out. The entire ab sence of vegetation makes matters worse, an evil easily corrected, but re quiring years to remedy. The bay is cut it) with inlands and peninsulas so that our view of the water is a little lake apparently and the sea breeze don't reach the town. There is an erroneous idea that peo p'e don't sweat in Mexico, but where do they weat. more? I have seen men come in rom work, driving far instance, with sweat dropping from chin, nose and ears and clothes satu rated. The natives don't work in Milliliter, which i ti ; more, sensible way than our., nuldng around. But they tell us that nine mouths of the year it is tiie loveliest climate in the world. That remaius to be seen and if it ever does cool off I will write to you again i;i Xew Mexico. There is little new ia customs, hotues and people. The same flat adobe houses, but the windows are large iron grated openings reaching to the floor for the double purpose of keeping out thieves and letting iu air. There re nu iire places or stoves as the winters are warm, J&nuaryis the season for oranges while now there is nothing in the vegetable line and only a lew very veet fruits which to me are sickening. i he road is progressing finely. It bogins with a wharf on one of the small isl.iiids, ruus along its side, crossing a bridge to the main land, turns norih-cast into the hills to wards llerrnesillj, leaving the present Guuvmas to the west a mile or so. A new town is aoon to be where the track r -aches the laud, but the "boom" is not apparent yet, but as before when it "cools oil"' this fall they look for a rush. What is to make a boom is not told us, but we are nevertheless looking for a biy one. Opinions' regarding the future ot (iiiaymas differ greatly, some claiming the mineral wealth of Sono ra is boundless, others that the taxes, duties and climate will forever debar its being a large city. Duties are so exci stive even from state to state, taxes on Miver and gold heavy, the climate is peculiarly oppressive, coup led with the heat, there is a something the thermometer don't record. Its debilitating cflect on all people, the fatal results to youiu children, aud then that dUease, Prickly heat. It first appears in small patches of white watery pimples, soon turns very red, spreading and causing such a burning aud itelyng those having if almost go wild at times, llera few weeks it dries up and you scale off in white scales, like scarlctina, and the Mexi cans toll ir.c they have three courses each summer of this annoying erup tion, while tlic Americans now here l.ave Buffered all summer, more or less. A gentleman irom the East In dies as they haye Prickly heat there but Guaymas Prickly heat in much worse, as all things here are different from any place in the known world. Please though, bear in mind (uayinas is not all Sonora. I write only what I know, inland the coun try may be fertile, vo. elation, rank breezes' may blow, water flow in streams, there may be food, perhaps the nights are cool, mosquitos may have deserted plains and mountains for Guaymas, and life may not heal burden. Wc shall soon see, as the road will he thirty miles north by January next. Yaqui Indians are the laborers, they are a very hard working people who have a reserva tion iouth of here that is well farmed they are quiet and self supporting, occasionally fighting the mexicana for their rights, being bitter enemies and always victorious. Once 'twas de cided to bring Chinamen here, now 'lis thought unnecessary the Indians work so well. In disposition and (habits are much like the Pueblos of New Mexico. When emigration comes in, capital to make improve ments, trees planted, ships arriving and business lively, como to Guay inas. Now 'twould bo hard to con ceive of a more uncomfortable place. A. M. M. ComnItd. They brought us civilization and progress aud now we have it. The bones of our fathsrs, mothers, sisters, brothers and chi'dren were exhumed to satisfy the wish of a person to identify the remains of a relativo who is reported to have worked his way through from the east to this place free of charge and without a regular ticket in a box car. It is reported that the man died of suffocation a day after having been attended by one Dr. Fields and was burried in the cast cemetery without even the knowledge of the clergy that has for the past forty years had charjre of the same, and now some unknown person comes and disturbs the remains of our dearest relations, in order to find a corpse supposed to be the one above mentioned. We will not submit to these outrages, and the parties imme diately concerned with the matter arc herewith notified that we, who have fathers, sisters, brothers and mothers burried in the cemetary above mentioned, will not let the act rest as it is is but will take proper steps to maintain our rights. Many relatives of the disturbed re mains. X. LETTER MST. The following Is a list of letters remaluing uncalled i'r In the post office at Las Vegas for the week ending October 19.

Gentle men: You were very kind to me when I was a free man, and that is the rea son I write this letter asking you to do au act of charity, and send me something to protect me from the cold, if it is Mothing but a pair of socks. I have n friends or money, aud have appealed to them in charge, but have received uothing from them. I may not have long to live but would like to be protected from the cold blast of winter while alive. To be imprisoned and chained is hard but with proper clo hiuglceuld bear it very well; if you see fit to send me anything, any of the hack drivers will brink it to the jail. IIopiDg gentle men, that you will help me, I remain very truly, Yours, James Allen. The track of the ltio Grande, Mex ico aud Pacific is naw laid seventeen miles south of San Marcial.
