A Happy 'ounlry. New Me vi cu is i happy country. It is a healthy country, rich section of 1lie carili in gold, silver, the base me luis and pastures. It has a delightful climate, magnificent scenery ard boundlessness of extent. It h:is the clearest sky, (lie must glorious, golden sunshine and the piu-cst'bra'eing'air of 11 the world. IJut incomparably ahovcall these inestimable blessings she is happily five from a state gov ernment; and being in a territorial ex istence she enjoys a liberty unequal led by any of flic States. Oh! if is a good country to live in when; you are ii.-t In. red to-death by politicians. Think of Kansas and Colorado and weep, Every state election the brain less demagogue prcambulates through the townships, counties and states, arguing, lying, deceiving, pleading and '.corking for vo'.es. The people become so accustomed to this sort of thing and with nothing much else to think about, they allow themselves to become interrested in the party lights and disgraceful scrambles for ullice and cannot realize fully the ab surd nonsense of wasting vital energy in light ingot her peoples battles until they are removed from theirsurround ings to an isolated Territory. Then they understood the full extent of Iheir foolishness in advancing the claims of petty politician to distinc tion instead of attending strictly to their own business. I he people ot'Ncw Mexico are thus relieved from the '.hurrah of elect ioneeriiiir and find that it pays better to look out for number one. Just realize the happy condi tion of a country in which society not torn to its foundations by the effort to elect a few men to office. It is our clysian field. . Trouble til San Fmnvisco. A Sau Francisco dispatch of the 23d mt gives an account of the kill ing of liev. J. S. Kalloch by a man by the name of Do Yung. Jt seems thai the difficulty grew out of some old grudge and Kalloch, the day before the killing, in defending his name and character, had used language defam'a tory of Charles and Mike Do Yong, and of whom, the next morningcalled Mr. Kalloch out of his room and shot him twice. The working men took the matter up and proceeded to meet out justice to the murderer. How ever the police interfered beforolhó mob had succeeded in accomplishing their object. De Young was taken-to-jail where the authorities are in con stant fear that they will be over powered and the prisoner taken out and hung, , The working men then called a meeting at the Sand Lots to determine what should, be done in the matter. Ten thousand m-qi soon gathered and in an excited and bois trous manner called for the blood of Kalloeh's assassin and the destruction of the Chronicle office, cooler counsels however prevailed and the mob agreed to await,the arrival of Kearney and other proiniuent men b.efore tak ing final action in'the matter. 4 Great excitement prevails aild trouble 4s an ticipated.

We earnestly commend our work to the prayers and benefactions of those who love the kingdom of our Lord. The Romish priesthood of course as was to be expected arc our bitter and un relenting foes, and the Jesuits, who have made Las Vegas Jicir head quar ters, ns they were in a former age "the standing threat of every Protestant throne in Europe," so now and here among ourselves, are. the direst peri of free institutions and of of a high Christian civilization. They are trampling under foot our laws on the subject of common Schools in a llagr int and shameless manner. Proceedings arc indeed kept secret in great, measure. Put if prevailing be lief and uncontradicted report are to be relied on they have extinguished our common school and are now gath ering the taxes which all our tax-pay-, ing and citizens are compelled to pAy and devoting the money to the ad vancement of their own institutions. They fling the stars and stripes from the highest, point of Iheir building, while they labor day and night to des troy free public schools, one of the most precious interests of a free peo ple and indeed essential to the perpe tuity of republican government. Dear Ilrelhren and friends through out the church, we. greatly need your help. 'Our brethren in Ocaié, for ex ample recently brought out of the darkness ami bondage of l'ontauisiii, have done all they have been able to doto put up fur themselves a church in which to worship god. They have put up the four walls and perhaps also put a dirl roof upon it, but they need lumber, hardware, glass, and funds to pay for work and to make their build ng lit for I lie holy service. At Agua Negra also, in Mr. An nin's field, other brethren recently or ganized iuto a separate church have done all they possibly can do to secure a church building, can they not have aid.

He has a house, barn, corn-fields, family, and says he "likes the white man's ways." This annoying person, whose stage name seems to be Ilenrv Jones, may as well understand that it is not ntall like "the white man's way" to ask for a reduction of salary. It is un precedented and sounds like sarcasm. There is no machinery in Washington fot cutting down salaries, and thou sands of people who are in Federal offices will heartily wish him back in his blanket and yellow ochre, if he cannot avoid this makinir a nuisance of himself. tiprinyjield licpuldicnn. . Old Phineas Rice was one of the quaint, types of itinerant Methodist preachers, lie had a hard pach to cultivate once, and when he ni-nle his report, to the Conference following, he reported the Church "looking up." The liishop presiding expressed his pleasure, but asked for an explanation, because no one expected success in that parish.

Nevada, is a level vallev id' over 4.000 acres, known as ILhodcs' Sail. Marsh. It is evidently nil ancient lake bed, and is surrounded on all sides by high yoleanie, mountains. According to the Enlerj.rihe, of Vir '.ii.ii in Citv. this valley is underlaid, a foot or two below. the surface, with a solid floor of rock salt, as transparent as ice. Indeed, when the cai:d that covers the surface is stripped oil' ihe salt below bears a very cióse resem blance to a Held of ice. In many pla ces lillle streams of water bubble up through the mass of sa't, and very frequently deep pools are found which look jtii-t like the air holes in a frozen lake. The salt made at the marsh is perfectly pure. When a tract of ground lias been stripped of the sur face soil the salt water rises over the bed of rock salt to the dnpth of a foot or two. Then crystals of salt begin o form .on tlcj surface, of the water, mid as they form they sink to the hotionu If the salt is to be fine, lor table use,1 workmen stir these crystals about wit'i shovele as they settle to the bot tom, thus breaking them up. For use in working silver ore coarse a)f is as good as tine; and the solid for mation may bo dug up with picks if necessary, bur, the loose crvsta's' are more, readily handled, and as much" sait of that kind is formed as can be disposed of.
