A terrible I r:itr'Jy oi-ciirred at La Joya, iismiiii Mexican town om; hun dred mid seventy mile below Las Vcg:- in me 'o Grandu valiey, lust Monday night, by which two men in-t lii' ir live; and two oilier are ly i n i ni i he point of deuth. The express train bound north drew into La Joya station at 4:45 yes terday morning, a little ahead of time. A heavy freight train was just enm ing in, and ihe passenger train back ed on the tiding. When it had run in, Conductor Homer, who had beeu standing ou the platform, jumped oil' ami walked around in front of the locomotive, to see if it was clear and took up hi posiiiou on the left side, and stood tliere while steam was dis charging. As ho walked along he glanced up in the direction of the town and had a full view across the flat over a stretch of half a mile. Not a sign of any moving object was in sight. W hat was his astonishment, there fore, when he stepped out from th.) fleam, to find a whole battery of Winchester lilies poked into his face. Mr. Homer is no coward but he nat urally felt a little flustered to see so much cold steel, and with one hand on hii six-shooter he lifted aloft his lantern and saw the faces of a little arinvoi .Mexicans. His first thought was that it was the James brothers Siang, and that they had corralcd him before proceeding to go through the train. I Ic asked what it all meant, when one t the men. who appeared to act as the leader ol the band, commenced to cry "John," "John," "John" like so many crows. He couldn't imagine what was up Mid addressing himself to the seem ing leader, he kept, asking lor an ex planation. Ho took time to look over the crowd and counted fifteen mount ed men, all quivering with excitement. No responses that he got from the crowd were intelligible, the chorus, "John," "John," "John" being kept up. The leader appeared to under stand every word said, and turning to his band spoke some words in Span ish which quieted them and then he endeavored to explain. Yet still, he was unequal to the task, and holding ti o lour fingers said something about "hombres," and raising his riflo went through the motions of firing; then lapping in quick succession his face, rigiit and left breast and waist. The conductor then began to see what it all meant, and mistrusted that lour men had been shot by John some-body, and that this was u party in search of the murderer. The spokesman so far recovered his speech as to be able to make it plain that his intention was to lead his baud aboard the train. This of course would be a iiiu-l injudicious thing, for most of the passengers were asleep and the tr.-mip of ihe party through the cars would be enough to rouse anyone to wake fulness, and ueariy all would certainly experience some fright to behold fif teen waikiug arsenals hovering over them. Mr. Ilarner remonstrated with them and told i hem that only one man had boarded ihe train at the station and was bound for Sabiual. Of course this must be "John," and when his words had been interpreted the crowd leaped .rom their saddles and made a break lor the cars. But they weie checked and after some parleying the leader, who turned out, to be the sher iff and one of hi posse, w ho had been deputized for ihe search, board ed the train and scrutinized every iio.d; and corner. The search was thorough and was conducted very quietly so that nearly all slept on. ut terly oblivious of what was going on. All this while Ihe rest of the posse were guarding the train with their Winchesters ready for anion When no traces of tiie fugitive could be found and it was high lime that the train should be moving, Mr. Horner explained that he had done all that he could and that he must signal his train to start. Again tliere were signs of an insur rection, but it was quelled by his sug gesting that two men would be dead bended, and this freewill offering suf ficed. The men came through to Los Lunas but up to that time no word had boon received of the hunted iran. T1IK JIORHIUI.K DEED was committed late Monday evening by Dim John Putney. He recently went to La Joya from Albuquerque where he was employed a clerk in Stover's store. He opened a small store on his owu account but we have ieu unable to lea uuy thing of hi hebiti or disposition Tlie storv ns told bv the sheriff h i that Putney r-it to the hoiue f Barcia n Mexican and while there J made Home improper overture to n: young girl. The girl quickly told her brother who commanded Putney to i let her alone but he repeated Ihi9 and ' was ordered to leave Ihe house, j Thereupon a quarrel ensued and Put ney, who appear-4o have been extra ordinarily well armed lor a peaceable citir.cn, conmeuced firing right and left, lie shot ami instantly killed Jesus Maria Barcia a brother of the girl, the shot entering in just below the ruht eye, passing clear through the head; aud another brother Jose Ignacio Barcia met the same fate, be ing bhoi through the lungs. His oth er victims were Sylvesre Esquibel and Manuel Terrara. The former wa3 struck in the breast, the ball passing out through the left arm, and the other shot in the abdomen ; it is thought that both are mortally wounded aud are likely to tlie any moment. The author of what seems to have beeu a cold blooded murder succeeded in making his es cape and after huntiug him for some time, the baud which came upan the train was gotten together and enter ed upon thai search. It is more than likely that if the murderer is caught he will be strung up at once because the people are la boring under the wildest kiud of ex citement and nothing but a hearing before Judge Lynch will satisfy them. LATER. After the above was iu tfypc we re ceived a despatch from Santa Fe sub stantially corroborating our account, with the exception that the murder er's name is given as Charles Busuil It is cither a case of mistaken identi ty with the sheriff's party, else our Santa Fe correspondent is in error. Thirty men are now scouring the country for the murderer. On to the i'ity of Mexico. For six or eigjit mouths the Boston capitalists who are heavi y interested i ii the A. T. & S. F. It. K. corporation have had surveying partesin the field iu Old Mexico cxamiuiuir Ihe country wit h the view of constructing a rail road iu our neighboring republic. It has beeu currently reported that these parties were engaged in making the preliminary survey ot the Mexican Central railway that is to run into t he City ot New Mexico. This supposi tion is wrong, the duties of the sur veying parties alluded t , having been to establish the right of way to cer tain city connections and branch roads that are to act as feeders to the trunk line. A party is now formiug at, El Paso which will at once enter upon the sur vey of the line to the City of Mexico. The work will be pushed forward and before many months, the plans will he raady to be submitted to Ihe syndi cate which has been formed aud who will furnish capital for t is construct ion as soon as the practicability of Ihe scheme can be demonstrated ami something tangible for them to esti mate the cost is lakl before them. This looks like business aud the be lief of Col. Bob lugersoll, which many have seen fit to doubt, was well grounded, that he would yet ride through from Chicago to 'he Citv of Mexico iu a Pullman coach without change, seems to be not too sanguin.' a hope. It is the opinion of many, that those who are counting upon El A'aso's be coming the great city of the south west will miss it sadly. From all ac counts Mesilla seems to be the com ing town, as it will be where the two great Continental lines cross. mi I.ETTKK MST'.

Another frightfully dusty day, the only good thing ubout w hich was that ihe wiud went down late in the afternoon. . Uouinted On era are. E uly iu the oveuiug on Monday a well dressed man knocked ut the door of the residence ofn well known ciii zeu in West Las Vegas and upon its being opened by the lady of I he house ' he walked in. The lady waited for him to slate his business but he re mained silent lora few moni uts. and ! upo being asked what he came there for, the intruder began to make im proper overtures to her. The lady who was alone at the time, her child ren, all of then quite small being in another room endeavored to dismiss him without raising an alarm. But the man continueel his iusolcuce and when the lady started to leave the room, he caught hold of her and at tempted to throw her to the floor. She succeeded, however, in getting clear from his grasp and gained the door, the ruffian vainly trying to pull her back by catchiug hold of her di es. Once outside she rushed up the street and begau screaming for help. She attracted several to her assistance, but was so badly frightei.cd that she could not speak lor several minutes, aud all that she could elo wes to point to the retreating form of aman flying down the street. She was nearly prostrated by her scare, but an old Mex'n au lady accom panied by her little girl hunted up a policeman, who after obtaining a des cription of the wouhl-be rnyishcr looked about, town and finally ran across him on tin; plaza. He was ar retted but as no one appeared agninst him to prosecute the case, he was set at liberty. The fellow was well dressed and stated that he had just arrived in town.
