Whether this is intended as a joko or is meant sim- t)lv as mere talk is very liar J to tell at pme-.it. Why the Indians should be removed from Colorado, their homes. and PC.t to New Mexico, is ino-c than auy reasonable, thinking man can tell. New Mexico is equally as rich a country as Colorado, is not so verv far behind thai state in point of population, is a better farming coun try as well as abetter grazing ccmu'ry and yet Colorado says, "the Utcs musl go" that, this roving band of thieves must be sent hither to p. rey upon the defenseless people and to retard the the growth of the Territory. If the Indians cannot be sent, to the Indian Territory, then let them stay where ihev arc. Thev can do no more da mage there than they can here. The scalp of a Coloradian is no more pre cious than a New Mexican or any other man This country has now ceased to be the far offland of myths mid vision that it oucc was: it has become a busy bustling country where live and energetic men live. The Indians should now be placed under the control of the war depart mentand totally disarmed, to that if they do persist in being useless they will be equally as harmless, . m James G. Blaine in his late polili cal canvass talked about takinghis hat in hand and goiug south to talk po litics, but when he found that the iin pulsivc Southerners were going to give him a right royal reception gave up the trip. The treatment he would have received would have killed all his blood and thunder speeches. He may go to Louisiana and if lie docs the cxreuels will give him a hearty reception, as if U the opposition of Blaine and, ojlicr politicians of alike class wjilch enables them to keep theiiiscívu In office. If those Northern speakers tm going to Louisiana they had better burn along. The Penioprat are making a thorough canvass, anil the state is ablaze with enthusiasm.

Stovcus has stirred up Ihe democratic menagerie, by say ing that the South may not come up nolid at the next election, aud for in timating that the southern leaders are ready to sell out again, for a consid eration, as they did on the final coun ting iti of President Hayes The howling of the rock-rooted democra cy, north and south, at the mere thought of such a corrupt bargain and sile, in which they will chance no part, is terrible. The c initials to superintend the taking of Ihe next census have been ap;)mntou. lncy number several hundred in all and each of them will have some hundreds or ikcv.Minds of deputies so that the census can be ta ke i in one t'av, Juncl 1BS0. The reports e'.u also all bo made out in a short time and the entire work of making the count will be completed in a few weeks. s The Daily Gaittte starts off on the second hundred this morning; that is one third of a year; blessed havcn3 of sweet rest arc the lift v two ' "New Mexican Mines. The Hon. Bradford L. Prince, in a letter to the New York Tribune, spe?.k as follows of the New Mexican mines: Almost every section oí New Mex ico abounds in" mineral, and the a- mouit of gold, silver, copper, coal and mica within its limits may be called incalculable. 1 will not enumerate all the localities, but venture the as sertion that in less thun Ave years New Mexico will be the great field of American mining enterprise. All that is wanted now is development. The mines of Colfax county are practical ly useless until the conclusion ot the pending foreclosure of the mortgage on the Maxwell land grant sets free the belt of rich mining lands within its limits. The same is true of gold, conner and mica on the Mora grant, now in nroeess of nartition. These two great grunts, together containing about 2,690,000 acres, have been stand- in"' right in the gateway ot immigra tion into the Territory as a kind of barrier; but the next few months will no doubt sec the titles of each settled and this vast extent of land, embra cing mineral, farming and grazing districts, thrown open to American energy and enterprise. All through the Territory excellent prospects exist but need development. The placers contain millions ot dollars in gold dust, but in general cantiot.be obtain ed for want of water, which can only be had at considerable expense. By meeting that expense an immense re turn could be insured. The Cerrillos silvtr mines arc in a most encouraging condition, but need capital for development. They are situated on the very hillsides from which the Spaniards extracted unk nown millions centuries ago, until theenslved Indians arose and drove them from the land, and endeavored to destroy every trace of th"ir suf ferings, by filling up the mines in which they hud labored At the "Cerrillos are dozens of chaims showing exce lent vein3 of "miueraV but very few of the pros pectors have the money with which to sink shafts to tbe distance neces sary for profitable results. Around Silver City and Shakespeare there is much mining enterprise, but every where there is a necessity for inore caul tal for development. Reports come daily of rich new discoveries, which can no doubt be taken with some grains of allowance; but this much is true, that but a moderate portion of the Territory has been prospected at all, and that the indica tions are that a short time will de velop fields of mining industry which will give employment to thousands of men and millions of capital. Bangor, lie., 16. The reports from Augusta of the intention oftheGt vernor and Council to count out Re publican majorities in the Legislature, and thus seize control of the State UUVVI mil til l. luí tuiioug j.;ai, were fully credited by leading Demo crats liere on Saturday, and Republi cans who havebeeu inclined to doubt the alleged revolutionary designs have come to regard the threatenings as serious. The perpetration of an act of this character would undoubt edly cause the most intense excite ment ever known in the State. Many leading Republicans of this section go to Augusta Monday. Augusta, Me., Nov. 16. The situa tion in regard to the counting out ot Republicans and handing over the control of both branches of the Legis lature to the Democrats and Green backers is unchanged. There is great apprehension concerning the action that is expected from the Governor and Council. The formal count will begin to-motrow, and it is expected a large number of persons will be pre sort in the city. The Republican State Committee'of 1879, and the new State Committee of 1880, will meet here to-morrow evening. cd with eighteen inches of additional soil taken from the sides of the tren ches, which are thoroughly drained. The trenches are also ventilated every fifteen feet so as to cast the moisturo from the beets. The object of the trenches is lo keep the beets cool and dry until needed. The reports from the country show that a crop of beet supplying two hundred tons n day will be provided, sufficient to run tho factory one hundred days. The readjusters in Virginia appear to have the legislature over the debt payers. Tha republicans hold the balance of power, and both parties arc bidding for support. The debt-papers offer concessions in the election of a United States senator, while the read justers boldly bid by offering the re peal of every'disqualification of color ed men, including the right to sit on juries, the voting tax, etc' The out look is favorable to the utter break up of the present Democratic conser vative party, the periect enfranchise ment of the colored voters and tho political redemption of the State. The power of tho Democracy in the south may prove to be of very short dura tion. The disintegrating forces arc at work, aud, as in this case, occasional ly conic lo the surface.
