Marshal Canrobcrt has been elected a Senator of Franco taking him from the position of Chief, of the commis sion on Army promotions. One day last week a steamer left Liverpool for Texas with 120 passen gers. Texas will rank with the great States ef the Union in wealth and po pulation wheu tho census laker passes around next Juno. Tiie Average Correspondent A vast dond o-f alleged newspaper -ncn havo passed over New Mexico during tho last year, and while a great numbar of them wcro really newspaper correspondents, who, in writing; communicated facts of value, 1 tho average was not of that kind. They are usually imn who secure pas ses, by agreeing to write for home papers and not btMig ímU lo investi gate and scud back anything of value they write the country np from guide looks and then,, for titling, tell about anything else they can think of. One correspondent writes from Tri nidad to the Slew York Commercial Bulletin, under date of October 80th: "A year ago Las Vegas had a pop ulation of S.OOOj with, only live or six Americans." This will astonish the Americans. It is generally believed ihtxt they, at that time, numbered from six to eight hundred. All the lawyers, doctors, surveyors, editors, bankers, drug gists, hotel men. bar tenders, livery men, uoarly all tho merchasls, etc., were Amcricaus, or at least not na tives. , "A Mexican town Tike tho old town c-f Las Vegas, bo it understood, isa hollow square, the immense court yard being a plaza, with a well in it, and everybody goes there to get wa ter. There arc large-, upright posts and beams over the Las Vegas well and the other night theyjtook two me.i out of jail and by lynch process hung them for murder ou the beam." It is years since any one goi a buck et of water from that well, if ever, iuid "the other day," he w tiles of was Co-ar months ago. Such a state ment is liable to causo tho people down, east to believe that lynching happens every few cbivs out here. Ot'the Hot Springs he ssiy: i.f.i i-.i . "L i m ii i. mere arc twenty sx. Tl.c water il boiling hot." That ought to end the article; bu; it docs not. Hear him. "The buildings are of stono and look something liko thn serpentine stono used In buildings around Phila delphia, onlyitis variable reddish in color." Think of corspai iug red sand stone fo serpentine. Of tho railroad ho saysr "It is considered impracticable to go to Santa Fc." With that he manages to wind op the article and signs himself W. P. C. which may be freely translated as Werry tccooliar- T!ie i72ouutu;us Again. wo uavs at luc cernios uta not cnlinfu mi' .Iaciha ft vt. i.i.noranl!m It lit ' did exhaust my time, and I w as com- pc led to leave, without visiting Pov erty Hollow, or seeing tho turquoise mine, from which some of Hie most famous jewels in Ihe Spanish royal regalia were taken. At a distance it is a low, round lopped hill, with the west half cut away, leaving an irre gular, rough face iu that dirección. A two mule team, with Harry Gillen, one of the Maddux party as conduc tor, carried me away from Carbon atcyille. The route was back to the old Albuquerque roadr near the poin ted hill, which is the north-western outpost of the Cerrillos, and which, witli tne cross on lop, once seen, is not to be forgotten again. The old road runs to the i.orlh-easr, with mountains rising clear and grand to the left and the Cerrillos growing less and less distinct behind us, and with thcPlacTrs in plain sight across-the Galistco. Tho road runs for several miles over an open plain, which gra dually slopes up to the north. Then on to tne toot lulls tho road runs among low pine trees, which dot the road in such a wav as to look like an old orchard. A herd of splendid white tail deer come in sight, a thou sand yatds or more to the left, and on the impulse of the moment a shot was sent from the Spencer rifle to wards them. The sudden motion of the herd showed that the ball had come uncomfortably near and it was oily then that the thought came that a shot might have been obtained, at a reasonable distance, and when the herd reappeared, a half mile further on, the attempt was made, but the wary animals were on guard and kept behind the thickest clumps of pines and the effort was a failnre. Some fifteen or eighteen miles from the Cer.illos tho road enters the foot hills and, for threo miles, follows up through a narrow valley and at the upper end; comes to where the road divide. One road going towards Las Vegas and the other turning sharply to the nortk-wost, towards SaiitaFc. From the time of leaving the crock, near the mines, not a drop of water was seen to this point, al though the valley we came up- showed in several places that it had been cultivated, proviug that there must have been water there in ordinary years. A well near the road had water in it; but we had no rope, so our mules could not be supplied. At the fork of the road we foiuid a ranche, called Ihe llock Corral and in a hole, culled by courtesy a well, got water enough for the mules, for Uve very modest price of fifteen cents, Wc made camp, had supper, built a fire and after a period of waiting, two wagons, which had gone by way ot Santa íe, came up. From that time ou our party consis ted of live, men, the . rcinibrcemeut consisting of J okn Maddux, Mr. Pen cil and Mr. Bonner. This llock Corral has been a regular camping placo for years and it is difficult to find good, dry wood. In the morn ing the party was up, had breakfast, aud was on the road just as the first beams of tho sun- wtra touching the hill tops around us. The- road leads up over a divide, tin ougli pine woods and among iow hills which anywhere else would bo mountains. Three miles from our camping place wc reached Cañoncito, and (hero struck thelhvoof the railroad. The village looks like a picture of d solatium T!ie adobe houses arc perched on bare washed hills; some of them apparent- íy ready to topic down iu the arroyo. One dance hail, recently b-.i-U of hewn pine logs, was opened and another one was well toward completion. Fo1 sveral miles thn road runs thro' a Jeep caiion, with just room for t he wagon road, the arroyo, or creek, and the railroad; the grado of tho latter beinji tut in the south hill side most of the way. It was Sunday, and the men not being at work, nuuiv of them were about the camps aud sa loons, the latter beiug perched on every available placo. Six miles iurthcr on wc reached La Glorieta, the scene of wao of the bat UftS-fLke rebellion. A kctel stand by tho side of the road and tho sign, which extends over the road, carries canons, arms, flags aud a spread cagie, wiucu Dears a scrou wan tne motto, "honor the brave," íb its beak. ."he road here passes through a de- ightful valley, which extends for some distance. Nearly all the presidential aspirants of both parties aro iu rather a bad fix at present. Their records for the last wo years are not exactly what they would wish just uow. Ohio killed Thurman. The greenback question is a deadweight on Hendricks. Blaiu'9 Chinese record don't go down wc'l with eastern people. David Davis has too much superficial facia and has rode tho fence too long. Sherman's opposition to silver is considered bad by the llocky mountain states. Tild- en's election schemes and John Kelly has forever separated the White House and Gramarcy Park. And so on through the whole list. The bovs have been grasping too eagerly afler presidential straws and whether they caught the straw or only the shadow; it has in cither case, proved sufficient ly heavy to sed then to tho bottom It will take a dark horse to win in the coining race. It is now understood that congress man Voorhis of New Jersey will resign aud as a consequence an election will be held for a successor. When that ciectiou comes, all the political fraud, dirt corruption, cheatcry, per jury, bribery, etc. Ever seen in this cmratry will be double discounted. Voorhis was elected by a mere cratch in a district which had always before been Democratic and which if left to itsel(would still vote that way. On that one vote hanga tiro New Jersey delegation in congress and on that vote may turn the election of a presi dent. So a- canvass of fnrod chicane rj and general political deviltry, with repeating, importing, and ballot box, stuffing mav be looked for with a certainity of not being disappointed The Baltimore American! snggests that the wav to kill lotteries is for newspapers to quit advertising them. If the moral people who object to lot terieswill do a HMle more and better advertising than the immoral lotter ies do, the paper wUldrop the later for the former. : The ci'izensof Albuquerque aro de sirous of having a b.nk established at that place.

Purley, a stage driver, was repor- teu rost on tlic bummit, but he tele graphed from Fairplay that he got through all right. Numerous reports of men being fro zeu can be traced to no reliable sour ces Cannot tell definitely till the storm subsides. A man in the employ of Burns, of the Kenosha House, known to have been ou the range with Burn's team has not been heard froim, and is sup posea to be lost. No mails leave hero in tho morning, unless the storm subsides, as neither man nor beast can live on tho sum mit. Tho snow here is about five inches deep, and light snow falling; wind quite lugtv.

But it must be confessed that there is much disappointment at the meagerncss of the república success.
