Wo have receired from I ho publish'
ir-, .Messrs. Ilarpir Bros.,Ncv York,
a copy f (ov. Wallace's new book,
"lieu 1 1 tu-: i ho tor oí t in Christ,"
A lctifí i n v .Mill comprehensive critique
of tin' navel, lrom the New York
Times, having previously appeared in
the (Jazettk, it is unnecessary to en
tcr inlo nn analysis of the plot, lion
Hut" is a roinaucc of religion, but it
is not, its mauy have supposed, a mm
pie paraphrase ot the iscw Testament
for Gov. Walluco has caught its .spirit
and lias written ot the eoch of the
advent of the Saviour and other holy
personage!?. There is no cant, neither
anvlhing sacrilegious in the treatment
of the story, and as a work of fiction
it deserves to rank high. The nam
rive and dialogue are excellent, and
there are numerous eloquent and sub
lime pictures, snch as the following
of the visit of the wise men to the
" The npartment was lighted by a
lantern enough to enable the strangei
to tlud the mother, and the child
awake in her lap.
'"Is the child thine?' asked lialtha
.cr of Mary.
"And she who had kept all the
things In the least ailectiny the little
one, aud pondered them in her heart,
tielit it tip in the light, saying :
'' He is my son !'
Aim they saw the ciniu M as as
other children : about his head was
neither nimbus nor material crown ;
its lips opeued mt in speech ; if it
heard their expressions of jov, their
invocations, their prayers, it made no
ign whatever, but, baby-like, looked
longer at the llamo in the lantern than
' In i little while they arose, aud,
returning to the camels, brought gilto
ot gold, frankincense and myrrii. and
laid them before the child, abating
nothing of their worshiplul speeches ;
ot winch no part is given, tor the
thoughtful know thai the pure heart
was then what it is now mid has al
ways been an inspired s-mg,
" And this was the avi -urll cy ha t
come so l.ir to tiuu ! '
The book is a marvel of simple ele
gance and taste. It is sent by the
publishers postpaid on receipt of .$1.50,
and we shall bo very much surprised
if the book does not have a large sa'c,
especially in New Mexico,for our peo
plo may well take pride in their gov
ernor's latest contribution to litera
ture. Wk made mention, a few weeks
since, of the tour of a party of emi
nent Congregational clergymen, who
undo a flying visit to different points
in the territory. One of these geutle
ineu, Uev. iiobert West, Sup't of Con
gregational Missions in the Sou' hwest,
tilled the puipit in the Pilgrim Church,
St. Lou is? on Sunday evening last and
delivered an able and interesting ad
dress on the history, social-condition
and the net'ds of this territory aud
the .Southwest, in the course of his
lecture he said: '"New Mexico is
most wealthy iu the precious minerals;
Its ciiittaie is ou of the most healthy
in the world, and it, is to be hoped
when communication is opened thro'
the means of railroads, and popula
tion begins to flow in. that this stale
of things will be remedied, Wild as
was the religion of the Montezumas,
it was immensely Mip"rior to any that
those people Ik.vc since possessed."
Tut: Xctn Mexican has recently
paid considerable attention lo the con
densation of news 'rom the territorial
aud Colorado press. But the boiler
down of news should be more care tul
with his stew, as ouio horrible breaks
have been committed of late. The
only blunder that Iho G azkttk has es
pecially to complain of is the clumsi
ness of this news condenser in cutting
down the article which recently ap
peared ou the local page, giving an
account of the depredations of the
band of outlaws, that has been making
its headquarters at Las Portales. How
the New Mexican could distort things
as to make the Gazettk say that J. J.
Webb was the leader of the band we
can not conceive of.
