corruptions which have been so shame

the trials of the late war there are none
entitled to more especial honor than
the brave soldiers and 6eamen who

JLETTEJt FROM NEW MEXICO.
Fokt Craig, New Mexico,)
August 2-Uh, lm. j
Editor Xebraska Advertiser.
Tell a Mexican that the Rio Grande Is not
the greatest river in the world, or that Its val
ley la not the most fertile, and he will receive
your statement with the same discredit that
you will any assertion he may make to you
after you become acquainted with him. To
them It may be so, as they have never seen
any other; but in my view the' Rio Grande
is very much like the Platte a rapid current
winding along among sand bars and over
quick sands, frequently changing its channel.
The low bottoms, mostly on the west side, are
the only portions succptible of cultivation
the second bottoms, or table lands, being
nothing but barren, drifting sands. The low
bottoms at this time tthe rainey season,) are
mostly covered with water, although thickly
settled all the way.
The first appearance of thrift and industry
manifests Itself at the Pueblo Indian village,
ten miles below Albngnerqne. Here were
the best crops of grain that I have yet seen In
the Territory. Men, women and children all
busy at work harvesting their wheat, now
ripe. I would estimate the yield at about ten
bnshels per acre, and their corn at not over
thirty." The Implements used by these peo
ple are of the most primitive kind. They cut
their grain with a crooked knife, carry and
pile it on carts, and haul It direct to the
threshing place to tramp it off with cattle
The wind Is their fanning mill. The quality
of the wheat is medium. Tronged sticks
were the only forks I saw, and wooden pad
dles the only shovels. These Pueblos were
comfortably dressed, and appeared contented
and happy. They have abundance of all
kinds of frnit, apples, peaches, pears, apricots
and grapes in abundance. These grapes, I
am told, make a superior wine, though for
table use they are not good. The vine is here
cultivated by trimming down to one stem
about one foot high in the fall, and covering
this entirely up -with sand during winter.
In spring the sand is removed, and the vine
immediately throws out new shoots on which
the fruit grows. I failed to get any wine, as
it was all sold or consu med.
The lands under cultivation here are patches
oblong, triangular, and -of every other con
ceivable shape, inado to conform to the Sake
(irrigating ditches); and in the construction
of these very' little engineering skill is man
ifested, yet the expense and labor of construct
ing them is an item of no small Importance,
as the nature of the soil here (mostly pure
sand,) requires constant, unremitting care
and attention to keep the Sakes in repair. I
was thinking to-day that had I to till the soil
here for my bread, instead of ditching and
laming these bottoms, I would damn them
and not ditch them at all, as 11 is a iaci very
apparent to ray mind that every bushel of
rain raised in this valley is secured at more
than three times the cost It is with us, and
very little demand for it except by Govern

this country when Uncle Sam assumed the
care of it. . So far as the Mexicans themselves
are concerned, two-thirds of them we see
are clothed from Uncle Sam's wardrobe. His
wagons supply all the carts used here; his
saddles, bridles, blankets and spurs are every
where seen. I have never seen a mexlcan at
work, and yet he would shame a Jew In the
price he will endeavor to extort from you for
anything he has that you may want, and
then take what you may give him and any
thing else he can conveniently get withoui
your giving it to him. So far as the charac
ter of the lower class of Mexicans is concerned
Elder Chivington's estimate is about correct
as near the truth as he ever preached.

the tops or limbs of these trees, which
are cut on atxmt every other year, afford

WThat is the matter with Brownville ?
It was my privilege to spend a few
days with the good people of Brown
ville, and we had occasion to notice
that something was the matter with
the people and the place. Some nine
or ten years ago we first passed th rough
Brownville. YV e then thought it the
tidiest, brightest, and neatest place on
the river from St. Joe to Nebraska
City. But that was in mill winter.
The ground wa3 white with snow.
and the air was full tf the feathery
flakes. Now, it was the last of sum
mer. Nature everywhere in and
around Brownville gave unmistakable
evidence that she had been profu.se
with her favors. Yet something was
the matter with Brownville. All around
it was plain to be 6een that the peo
ple of Brownville were "dissatisfied
and discontented. Manifest disquie
tude was depicted everywhere. Old
buildings that had done 'good service
for long ears were being torn down.
or enlarged and remodeled. Beauti
ful new brick business houses had been
erected, a large High School Building
of the same material, churches no
where to be seen a few months since
have sprung up, the streets were lined
with huge piles of old brick and refuse
timbers, tellingplainly that something
is the matter with Brownville.
We noticed but few places where
the grass was allowed to grow, but all
around the people were digging down
and tilling up. riles of fresh dirt dug
from the hill side, or some cellar, well,
or cistern, were lying abound loose,
making it absolutely unpleasant .if
not dangerous to perambulate the
streets. Over and through the steep
and rugged hill sides, north, south,
east and west, the brush was being
cleared away, deep channels cut, ra
vines filled up, "God's green earth"
rudely "trampled under foot," and
man, weak ana teeble man, doing ap
parently his utmost to improve upon
the works of nature, lo accomplish
all this, laborers and mechanics are
being mprcz$ed into the service. A
citizen of .Nebraska- City, and well
known as one of our bet artisans
while standing with nu upon one cf
the hill sides in Brownville, and joint
ing out the changes that had taken
place, in which he had been jmrsuaded
to take a part, added: "I haven't
been home since the fourth of July."
Greenbacks, and all sorts of "filthy
lucre," are unceremoniously shaken
in the face, in order to "persuade men."

A JLelter From Henry TTard
57i? Coshocton (Ohio) Democrat hav

The JJosfon Advertiser which perver

the following reply: '

Dear Sik: You ask me whether

the editor of The llotton Daily Adver

be a fair fight between rugged (Dem

I did not. The word (Democratic)
was interpolated by the editor of the
paper from which it comes, on pur
pose to deceive his readers. I re
gard Grant as an upright, honest man,
of good administrative skill the very
man to be President in times which
require steadiness, clear sense, kind
ness and tried patrioitsm. I not only
believe that he will be President, but
that his civil administration will be as
remarkable as his military career.
Since all the men who sought to de
stroy this Government are rallying
around Seymour, it is fit that all the
men who stood up for the union should
gather about Grant. It is an honor
that will not happen twice in a man's
lifetime to have a chance to vote for
such a man as Grant. No young
man can well afford to throw away
his chance. Even if done, it
