The early mining in Now Mexico for Hie century preceding If 80 were carried on by slow labor. 'I bo unfor tunate Puo1lo Indians found by the Spaniards in this country were com piled by their gold and silver-loving eMiiuoror to do '.be work of mining while their master took the proceeds. Xal orally enough this system made mining unpopular among tho native races and led to the great rebellion of 1O0 which was only suppressed after eighteen years of lighting and then the result reached was a compromise. Most of the mines were fi led up du ring the conflict and on of the condi ti'tns of its eess U ioa was that, (hero should be no more ompulsury min ing. The .Spaniards after this war began to adopt a pastoral lift. They were not ambitious of digging in the bowels of the earth themselves. Their absence from the old country and the intermixture of races which was cons tantly going on made them ''lose their grip" so to speak. Mining'wcnt out of fashion and the country went tosieep no far as tho development o fits mine ral resources was iioneerned . and it has been asleep ever sime up to with- A correspondent of the New York Times, writing from New Mexico says that an invest igaiion of the coppor resources of New Mexico leads to tho belief that the depreciation in the value of copper which will follow in tlie development of New Mexican thiucs will practically exclude tho oilier mines in the United Slates if not, indeed, the most of those iu the world from competcing with that I erritory. One of the richest deposits is at Clif ton, (J3 miles almost dm west from Silver City, and between CO find (ÍÓ miles from Kalstou, now possible bet ter known as Coronada.The ore seems icimost unlimited in quantity in fact there is a solid mountain of copper. To prove this, the lirst development was by tunnel at tho base, and from which drifts were .carried in all direc tions, shafts in the meantime being sunk from above the ores from the top showing fully as rich as thasc as the bottom. The smelling works and attendance building are in u cañón on the Fresco River, near where it empties into the Gila. Pud has to bo brought 85 miles and costs ;M0 u Ion, one and half tons being required to smelt a ton of cop per. Cartage to tho nearest railway station at Oicro costs $70 a ton; jet business is carried on at a large pro tits. At Sunta Rita, near Silver City, are extensive copper deposits, which have been worked for over ahundrcd years While yet Mexican Territory these mines were worked mainly by con vict labor, and at times by hired na tives. The deposits are of various kinds oí copper ore and native copper in the scams of the rocks. It was for the latter that mining was carried on in former years. There is an abun dance o( rich oro overa large district, but at present the mines aro in the bauds of speculators and not. being worked. The extreme dilíieuiíy oí getting I raivspo t.ition for the incluí to the end of the railroad has also, no doubt, had an important bearing upon tho cessation of labor upon the mill"?. The ores of the Sauta Rita and Hanover districlsadjoiningarc in tho form of immense deposits and while rich, aro unlimited in quantity. Further west the Rurro Mountains contain large deposits of copper, and still further, at Cornoado, are several mines of great magnitude, of low grade ores, which cannot be worked at present for want of fue! and water. I'p the Valley of the Rio Grande, and 18 miles east of 1'enialillo, which is hardly moro than 2'0 miles from tho Colorado boundary, is the great cop per district, of the Puerto Westward, and beyond tho territorial lint- into Arizona, arc copper deposits of much magnitude.
