Wcíncí lag, Novtmber 5, 1879. , Wealth of New Slexlco. A correspondent of the San Fran cisco Bulletin has written quite an extensivo communication to that journal on the agricultural and mineral wealth of New Mexico and Arizona. ,Thc probable effect of the several lines of railroad now being built into these two territories. The article is to the point and por trays in a forcible manner, the "wealth and advantages oí' this coun try. le says : j in New Mexico the railroad by ! long odds runs through the best portion of the territory ; in Arizona, leaving out the mines, the .worst. I There isn't much of Arizona, out-i side of her mineral wealth, that is j comparatively and if ever that is ; developed to any extent she will ! have New Mexico to thank for it. There can be no question of the ex-j istence of mineral to a most re-! markable extent in Arizona. The hills and mountains are full of it,! and in places wonderfully rich. Un-i J" ..i j 1 l 1 1 I ionunateiy, nowever, mere is an exceedingly limited supply of water and outside of the mosquito brush, no fuel worth speaking of. With! the completion of the Santa Fe to Arizona the latter difficulty is en tirely removed ; for New Mexico is in many places literally imbeded with coal, and it can be mined so cheaply that the question of supply becomes simply one of transporta tion. The (ialistco coal fields, be tween Santa Fc and the Rio Grande and through which the road passes, are of enormous extent and the coal declared by experts to be anthra cite, equal to Pennsylvania coal. It can be mined and placed upon the track at a profit, for $1 per ton. Some conception of these fields may be formed from the fact that l Ave re 2U0 tons shipped per day for the three hundred and fifteen work ng days of the year, but twelve and three-tenths arces of the six thousand acres would be exhausted. The San Pedro fields, further down the Uio (írande, are very extensive, and the coal of excellent quality, costing .$3.25 per ton on the Arizona line. This question of coal on the line of the Santa Fc becomes of the greatest importance, not only from the fact that there is no coal whatever on the line of the Southern and Texas Pacific. All in all, New Mexico is incomparably the richest of the territories of the Union. With a mineral wealth exceeding it, she has a much greater agricultural area, while in fruit possibilities she has no rival east of California. Her copper interests must, in time, be come of even greater importance to the country than those of Lake Su perior ; for even now, the district mines, near and extending over the Arizona line, pay $00 per ton for charcoal and $70 per ton for ox trans portation to end of track, and com petes with Lake Superior district in the great markets of the east. With railroad facilities and cheap fuel, the copper pioducts of New Mexico can be placed in the eastern mar kets at ten cents per pound the present price is sixteen and a half, with greater margin of profits than now. The agricultural area of the Rio Grande is fully half a million of acres, and though it has been settled from one to three centuries, net one in ten is under cultivation And such cultivation ! They plow with a stick, hoe with a sharp-point cd pole, mow with a hoe and thresh with goats. All the hogs are chained up, the dogs run loose, and the cat tle are yoked by the bonis. In fact what they call farming is but mere scratching in the ground, and they go through with it precisely as their forefathers did three hun dred years ago. There is no devel opment of the mineral resources worthy the name, and, although 1 e . Mexico was peopled long be fore the Pilgrim Fathers landed in New England, its great wealth un der ground has been undisturbed for a century. Everywhere almost are traces of early, and in some in stances very extensive work upon mines, done away back in the time of the Spaniards. The " I'm coming out to New Mexico, this fall, when the weather gets cool," folks arc still writing to the Sentinel office words to the above effect. We cannot help but think they are making the greatest traveling mistake of their lives. Instead of remaining in the States and going through the roasting process this summer, they o ugh i to have been out here where hot weather is unknown. Live and learn seems to be the rule of the great American people and it is ussless to attempt to teach them othenvis e. Raynolds Brothers, Las Vegas, A'eio Mexico Thinking in 11 its branches.
