The i!oxi-u
For the past week this vicinit v has
Lb( en great! v excited over ti c startling
ruuibrs that,!, have, 'reached us from
Parras,: Mexico, of the wonderful dis
covery of the immense yield of gold
found in the Mine Mojiu'to. The De
mocrat, has carefully noted these re
ports, bul, preferred to keen silent,
concerning them till scuiething
definite could be learned.. Wednes
day the specie train trum Saltillo ar
rive at Malamoras in charge of Don
Daniel Sadi, who is a gentleman of
reliability, and who, front his con
neelion with pro.s)ectors and miners
at Parras, is capable of furnishing an
intelligent report of that wonderful
conutrjv V Democrat, reporter inter
viewed Señor ijada ami horned. that
the report;! that had preceded him
were not fabulous .or exaggerated:
but that the mine is really worth all
that has deen claimed for" it that it,
pans out rich . beyond all expectation.
x.s to the rep'ort'that thirty men took'
out 'i,C00.00u in, twenty six day.-,
Señor Sada says hits not prepared to
confirm, but that the mine yields i in
meirsely ' ho has ample proof, and
known that a moral a Mcxhrau nose
hag for feeding mules and containing
about sixty pounds', is worth :''M.i on
account a: its richness. lie says that
laborers are flocking to the mines from
the surrounding country, which is
largely agricultural, and that jt is
iiiípo'ssáble to gather the crops hi con
sequence. The mines resemble those
of Loadvillc in i'ing of easy digging,
the gold being. inainly on the surface.

"From an old and" trustworthy re.-!
dent we learn the following: " j
In lSio.'J Leroy Los.', win I known iu
th. s lection as the brother of Judge
Ilossc, of the It:o (irande disiiitu
courrs, returned to his home Irom a
loifgcxpcrienco, in the gold mines in
California, lie had nor been success
ful iu his search for gold on the Pacific
Coast, and his brother persuaded him
to settle down on the macho oriefMas
between here and Santa Maria' While
located here, two Mexican one night
stole two of his horses and lied. The
alarm was given, and Mr. Hcose and a
Mexhst! servant wouuici! theirhorsos
and started in hot ,utrsuit. TheA

his old mania for mine prospecting:
came upon him. and he started out
with his servant and piVueeded to
Chihuahua. They prosecuted tlcir
scarch until they "reached Parras, in
the state of (Coahui!a. While explor
ing here they found in a mountain
stream great quantities of gold. They'
proceeded to work it, and while wash
ing out the dust with tin cups -tho
only implements thev had they were
surprised by the Imtiiins and forced
to leave. They were driven into tho
mountains. where they were obliged
to subsist upon the fruit of the nopal
(prickly per). As soon as possible
they returned home and reported their
wonderful discovery, showing to their
friends the rich samples they had se
cured. Col. Jas. II. Durst was then
collector ot customs for this port. He,
manifested great interest in the mat
ter, and suggested that Fosse return
and prosecute his investigation furtn
er, and if it proved all that it promis
ed he would raise 100 men, or more if
necessary, to keep the Indians away
while it could be worked; Mr. llos-e-went,
but found so many Indians
about it that ho could not approach
it. Ho. was compelled to return to at
tend his caso in court, and before he
could again undertake his journey
was attacked with yellow, fever and
died. For a time the mine was kept
in sight, but eventually forgotten,
I Us servant. Sandoval, after remaining
here a number of years and talking of
lhc'gfoat mine; joined MiurN'eliy's eom-
niaiHi and died m San Antonio two
years ago of consumption about tl e
same time that his commander died in
Washington. All recollections of the
mine died with him.
'5 About two months ago. it wili be
vejuc.nberod, a wonderful .-ilver mine
w'ns found iu a Mountain called "the
Ylajofla," in the same corner of the
three states mentioned. The diseov
ry created considerable excitement
and very many people, flocked to the
new mine. The ore' proved to be fa
bulously rich and han continued to
grow m popularity, it ñas developed
far richer leads than Leadville Very
recently, whi'e speculators and miners
were en route to the mine, Ma'Udo,
froniMonclovn, traveling over the
mountains -accidentally discoverd t ra
ces of gold in crossing a strean .
Closer examination deorvjed iargv
quantities, and they have rvsu lied in.

The fever has. reached Matamoros
and luii created great 'excitement , a -it.
has in our own city. From authen

high, and articles of food command
