Notes or a Trip to New Mexico and Ar
izona. Los Vegas, New Mexico )
July, 2, l3l. J
Deak IIeuald: Whilst resting be
tween trains we conclude to give you
a sketch of our experience amid the
burning sands of the great South
West. We had not an hour's delay
between Plattsmouth and Tucson,
Arizona, leaving 1 on Tuesday morn
ing at 9:20, and arriving at Tucson at
noon on Friday. The distance by
rail is 1519 miles. Tucson is one of
the old Mexican cities of Arizona,
said to be three hundred years old.
It is situated in a low, sandy basin,
surrounded by mountains; it is said to
be just on sea level, and one of the
hottest places in the United States;
the mercurv standing whilst we were
there at from 113 to 122 in the shade.
This is the place where we are told
that a man died and went to the place
that the new levision culls Hades, and
seeing Abraham afar off he called to
him to go back to Tucson and bring
him his blankets, as he wa3 suffering
with cold. It had not rained in Tuc
son for six months and the dust ::nd
sand were immense, there not being a
sulliciency of water to use for sprink
ling the streets. The streets are nar
row and irregular; the houses low and
built of adobe. It has a population
of 8000, divided as f3llows: 4000 Mex
ican Ind ans, 1000 Chinese, and the re
mainder Americans of the third class.
It is the largest city in the Territory,
and the outiitting point fcr all south
We left Tucson, in company with
F. Ii. Knot of Globe City, on Saturday
morning, the 25th at 5 o'clock, for the
Stonewall Jackson Mine, one hundred
and twenty miles to the norm. e
traveled day and night, especially in
the night, as the heat and sand v. ei e
teriible; on our way through the des
ert we passed through several cactus
groves, wheie they grow from forty to
fifty lett high, and from twelve to
eighteen inches through the body of
About fifty miles from -Tucson Mr.
Knox drove us to the ruins of one of
the ancient cities Arizona. The
foundations of buildings and streets
in irregular form were plainly visihlt;
covering at least a section of land.
Earl on Sunday morning we sud
denly ran on to a squad of for J
Apache scouts; we were not himliii
for anything of the kind, but they
were there right in lront of us and no
way to get around them. We had
plenty of sand so we drove directly to
tnetn. Mr. Knox spoke to the lead, r
of the squad and we learned that they
were in the mountains hunting for
some cow boys who had m ordered a
Miracopa Indian the day previous; not
taking us for ow boys they permitted
us to pass; we never passed in any
little game in our life with more sat
isfaction than this one.
At three o'clock Sunday afternoon,
we arrived at the place of our dtstiua
tioH, the Stonewall Jackson Mine.
IlerwMr. Knox remained with us un
til after night, giving us what infor
mation he could in reference to the
mine and introducing us to other
miners who would posi us up regard
ing the condition, prospects &e. ot the
Stonewall ; this is beyond doubt nat
urally, one of the best properties
in the territory; and it it was located
at Leadvile, or Virginia City, Xev.,
its value could hardly be computed;
there is at least ten thousand tons of
what thev call hundred ounce ore
dumped up at this mine that
thev are making no use of what
ever, and millions of tons of the same
underground; besides this they have
the richest streak of native silver that
is yet discovered any where on the
Pacific slope. Lumps of almost native
silver weighing frm one to four hun
dred pounds have been taken iroui
this mine. With all this wealth the
mine under its present management,
lias not been profitable in the aggre
gate to its owners. Having spent Sun
day afternoon and all of Monday in
diligent inquiry in reference to this
property, (as that was our business to
Arizona) and having le irneu all
that we possibly could in reference to
the same, on Tuesday morning the
2Sth at 2 o'clock we left the camp for
Fort Grant thirty-five miles distant
on line of the stage company, arriving
at Fort Giant at 9 a. ni.; the stage for
the Southern Pacific li. It. being due
at 10:30, at the appointed time we
took stage for Wilcox, connecting with
train there at 10 a. m. Wednesday, the
29th, arriving at Socarro, New Mexico
at 7 p. in. where we had intended to
stop over a train and take a look at
the place; but as we stood on the de
pot platform whilst the engine va
taking water, we heard a group of ex
cited men talking about centepides;
one man had been bitten and was at
the point of death ; another child was
dead from same cause; another party
had found one in his coat sleeve; and
before the engine had quenched its
irony tl.irsr we had lost all interest in
Socano, and quietly resumed our seat
in the cars for Alhuquerqu. 1C0 miles
further up the Kio Grande. AHn;
querqne is the terminus of the Atlan
tic and Pacific II. II. ami is tob tif
south western terminus of th Dei.vej
and I'io Grande, ami being located o.t
the line of the A. T.and S. F. makes ii
the rail road city of New Mexico;
the new town is looted una utile
from the old city; a street railvay
connecting the two places; the popu
lation of each town is about two
thousand. For fifty miles upthellio1
Grande from this place the Pu
eblo villages are very numerous and
the valley of the Rio Grande is in a
fair state of cultivation ;the Indians in
many places having good orchards and
vineyards. Albuquerque, we think, is
destined to become the commercial
metropolis tit the coming new state
of New Mexico, as its agricuitui al,
and mining and rail road advantages
are much superior to any ttther point
in the territory; at 8 o'clock on the
evening of the 30th, wo reached the
noted city of (the Holy Faith) or Santa
Fe as that means the same in Mexi
can. We will not attempt to give you
a description of Santa Fe as it was
written and re-written in the Lin
coln Journal less than a month ago by
much abler pens than ours. This
much we will say: that the age and
history make it of more than usual
interest to the thoughtful observer.
One thing we have noticed is that
all the old Mexican and Pueblo vil
lages in Colorado, New Mexico and
Arizona were so laid out originally;
that the principal street without re
gard to the points or the compass,
point directly to Santa Fe, and cite
uniformly called Santa Fe street or
avenue. This leads us to the conclu
sion that centuries ago, Santa Fe
stood as the great religious and politi
cal attraction of the then hundreds of
thousands who peopled the vast re
- gion of country encircling in it3 area
at least a thousand miles square. We
had intended to give you a short
sketch of Los Vegas but just at this
moment we have heard of the assas
sination of President Garfield. Flags
are at half mast and the city is all
a blaze of excitement. We cannot
write further. B.
BACKING A STKANUEUULE.
Mr. Mink's Error as to The Brute's
Trottiiif qualities. Jim ;ye, Hard
Hitter, aud Humility Taktn from a
.Market Wag-oa and Pressed into a
Go-as-You-Please Match The Victory.
Xewburgh, June 5 Besides at
tending to his duties in connection
with the mail service between here and
Fishkill, Mr. John Mink finds time for
an occasional tpin over the roads in
pursuit of recreation. The ether day
he overtock aud passed on the Soutti
plank road a market wagon bound for
Frlenville, and drawn by three fine
fooking mules. Mr. Mink pulled up
at the hotel in South Orange, and be
fore long the mule team came insight.
As it was going by, Mr. Mink called
out to Tim Curtis, the driver: "Come,
now, Tim, I'll bet you 30 I can pick
out from that team one mule that will
beat either or both of the other two
mile heats, best two in three, go as you
please, over this half mile track here."
Several well-kuown horsemen why
wished to see the sport go on were
standing about, and, encouraged bv
them, Tim Curtis replied: "Well, Mr
Mink, I'm your huckleberry."
It was in the agreement which fol
fowed that Mr. Mink should ride the
mule he selected, that Curtis should
jockey another, and that the third
should be ridden by the stable boy.
"Have they got auv names V" asked
"Oh, .yes," replied Curtis, pointing
them out; "that's Jim Xye, that's Hu
mility and 'tother one's name is Hard
Hitter. Now, which one will you
Mr. Mink, who weighs nearly 200
pounds, chose the smallest, Jim .Nye,
because he thought, al ter looking them
all over, that he showed the most spir
it. Curtis choso Hard Hitter, and
Humility fell to the stao.e boy, John
ny. Saddles, spurs, un whins were
hurriedly procured, and each jockey,
mounting Lis charter, appeared at the"
judges' st. Hid, ready for the word. The
odds weie against Mr. Mink, for in or
der to win he was obliged to heat both
of the others. In drawing for posi
tions Humility gut the ius.de, Hard
Hitter was in the middle, and Jim
ye got the outside, close to the si one
Willi. The word Was given by Thomas
Bingham, who raised the Vanderbilt
trotter Mountain boy and first owned j
Goldsmith Maid. 1

i he .lii.aiitt one 1 1 1 1 : 11 leg came uown
on the opposite side of the stone wal:.
" This," lemai ketl Mr. Mink, "is a line
sti t of bushwhacker I've chosen."
Before his jockej knew it Hard Hit
ter had tit ruck to ihe right for the open
gate leading to llm ro;id, and Curtis
had great trouble pulling him back on
the track. In the meat! time Jim Nye
had got clear of the stone wall, and
xv.is making for Humility. On the
b.ickstivtc!) Humility led the trio, and
J i in Xje had passed Jlard Hitter and
taken second place. The escjle'uent
was intense. Curtis was vigorously
plyiiiu ;js gad to overtake Jim Xye,
and Humility showed signs of getting
unruly. Before going dozen yards
Humility bolted, and Jim Nye follow
ed suit. Humility went to the left,
into the pasture. Jim Nye merely b
gan backing. Hard Hitter cut through
between the other two ami was joggad
along, leaving them making circles in
the centre of the track, to which they
had returned. The jockeys of the two
refractory beasts soon got them under
way, and as the three racers pitched
into the homestretch for the first half
they were bunched. IJpaching the
stand, each of the stubbo. u aaimal
stopped still, as though by agreement.
Finally Hard Hitter backed out
against the judgss' stand, and Xye
again took to the Btone wall. They
thus got separated and went on. Tho
time at the half was 2:29. At the turn
Humility pointed for the road gate,
and dropped behind. Going up the
backstretch Jim Xye shook of? his
competitors, and five to one that liw
would win the heat was offered, with
no takers. Confidence in James, how
ever, was wrongly besto,wed, for he
soon bolted. On reaching the home
stretch Hard Hitter led. Ha went un
der the wire two lengths ahead of
Humility in 4:57. Jim Ne stopped
short of the wire and had to be led
The second heat resembled the first,
save that Jim Xye once forfeited a
good lead by halting on the track, spin
ning around like a millstone, and dart
ing off in the wrong direction. It was
won by Hard Hitter in 4:59. with Jim
Xye a poor second, and Humility in
process of being led down the home
stretch by the stable boy.
Amid the applause of the crowd
Curtis hitched up his three mules and
started off for Ellenville, fifty dollars
richer than when he unhitched.
Said Miss Posigush to Syntax, ths
college tutor, "So 3011 tench at Ilaiv

sure! Hut then I should be frightened
to death to meet any ot the students,
with half-a-dozen foreign languages at

never speak English at all." "Very

dreamy way. 'The re! I knew they
didn't," continued Miss Posigush.
"What language do they speak most,

their cheek-pouches were a. so distend

mand, who while leaning against &
trunk crunching fruit, was also busy in
looking after that which ho held under
his armpits. His attitude attracted the
attention of two of his companions.
They gravely consulted together, and

Immediately the other monkey jwnnce

with this exploit, he returned to where
his companion had hid his own fruit,
