The Democratic bolters of Tennessee are
now called the Fusseliiers, after their leader,
Fussell. The Avalanche says " their Democracy
is all wcol, a yard wide, sky-blue, and no
moth-holes in it. It is the Democracy that
pays the national and State debt according to
the contract, and has no nonsense about it."
The wool-hat Democracy has been long known,
trusted and honored, but this new-fangled all-
wool type is rather suspicious. Down this way
the all-wool element doesn't vote the Demo-
cratic ticket to any great extent. There is
another fatal point in the Avalanche's defini-
tion of the Fusseliiers—-that idea of paying
the State debt dollar for dollar. A very small
squad of Tennesseeans are going to give them-
selves away in that style.
SHAM REVERENCE FOR THE CONSTI-
The passage of the river and harbor bill by
both the House and the Senate may be con-
strued as at once a rebuke to the president
and a vindication of Congress. The bill un-
doubtedly contained much objectionable mat-
ter. It had, however, a preponderating pro -
portion of good and • urgent matter, and the
country in general will approve the action of
Congress in overriding the president's veto,
and thus stamping with its implied contempt
the reasons assigned aud recommendation sub-
mitted iu the veto message. There is nothing
new in the president's homily on the vice of
log-rolling legislation. Nor is the remedy
which he suggests entirely original. In fact it
may be said to date back to the Tudor
and Stuart dynasties in England, and to more
ancient despotisms where one supreme head
lumped together executive aud legislative
functions aiii levied taxes and made appro-
priations acoordiug to its pleasure. Bat there
is something new and quite phenomenal in
the appearance of the chief of the stalwart
Reprblicans, who now occupies the presiden-
tial chair, as a strict constitutionalist and a
determined stickler for constitutional limita-
tions upoji the law-making power. As Mr.
Arthur is not an idiot, he must know that his
party has never hesitated, through an
accommodating Congress or an ac-
commodating executive, to strain
and wrench tbe constitution to
serve a momentary purpose or carry out a
favorite policy. Yet he tells us that it is rev-
erence for the constitution which above all has
induced hiua to veto the river and harbor bill.
4< My principal objection to the bill," he says,
44 is that it contains appropriations not for the
common defense or the general welfare, and
which do not promote commerce among the
States. The-^e provisions, on the contrary, are
entirely for the benefit of particular localities
in which it is proposed to make the improve-
ments. I regard such appropriations of pub
lie money as beyond the power given
by the constitution to Congress and
the president." Thus we are told
that it is an infraction of the constitution to
appropriate public money for the mere benefit
of particular localities; but in all Mr. Arthur's
political life he has, as a stalwart
Republican, upheld the policy of tax-
ing the people and indirectly tak-
ing both public and private property, not for
the common defense or the "general welfare,
not for the promotion of commerce among the
States cr with foreign countries, but for the
benefit and comfort and aggrandizement of
private interests. The constitution of the
United States, the constitutions of the
several States of the Union, the
constitutions of all civilized States
the world, provide that private
property may be taken for public use upon
just compensation to the owner; but no in-
stance is known of a constitution which pro-
vides for taking publie property or private
property without compensation, either pri-
vate or public, for private use. Nevertheless,
Mr. Arthur has been a stout upholder of a
policy which has systematically wrought this
spocies of appropriation and transfer—a
policy the tenor of which has been aptly de-
scribed by Mr. Justice Miller, speaking for
the Supreme Court of the United
States, in these words; 44 To lay with
one hand the power of the government
on the property of the citizen, and with the
other to l^stow it upon favored individuals to
aid private enterprises and build up private
fortunes, is none the less a robbery because it
is done under the forms of law and is called
taxation." With views of constitutionality
broad enough to cover such a policy, why
should the president feel constrained by con-
stitutional scruples to put his veto upon river
aud harbor appropriations for local improve-
ments of doubtful public utility? Had he, and
the school of politicians to which he belongs,
not been in graver matters than this lax to
licentiousness in construing the constitution
the principal reason which he assigns for the
veto might be accepted as sincere; but
it is, this can not be accepted as his
true reason. As circumstances would
seem to indicate, his true reason for tbe
veto was complex. First, the defeat of
the bill would indefinitely set back the im-
provement of water routes and seashore out
lefs in a manner calculated to create a whole-
some competition not agreeable to certain lo-
cal interests in Mr. Arthur's faverite section.
Second, an effectual veto of the bill, followed
by the adoption of the president's recommen-
dation, would place at his disposal $10,000,000
to be expended at his discretion, and with a
degree of favoritism which he might see fit
to practice erom partisan considerations, or
to promote his own political aspirations. .It
curious to note, too, that if Congress had
adopted the plan recommended by the presi-
dent, it would have enabled him to do,
if he chose, the very thing which be de-
clared to be beyond the power given by the
constitution to Congress and the president—
to make "appropriations not for the common
defense or the general welfare, and which do
not promote commerce among the States," but
entirely for the benefit of particular locali
railroad companies as common carriers have
certain obligations which they may be com-
pelled to perform. This Judge Haight
also admits. As illustrative details of
this principle it has been held by
different courts that a railroad company may
be compelled to run its trains over a particu-
lar bridge, to deliver and receive grain at a
specified elevator, to relay a track taken up.
to run trains to the terminus of its line, to
build and maintain a depot at a designated
place, to stop trains at a given station, to
make close connection with another line, and
to do various other things for the convenience
and accommodation of the public required by
its obligations as a common carrier. It was
only the other day that Justice Cullen, of the
Supreme Court in Brooklyn, granted an alter-
native writ of mandamus requiring the Long
Island Railroad Company to fulfill its obliga-
tions as a common carrier. " There must," said
that Judge, 44 be a substantial compliance with
the obligations of the company to the public,
and this may lie enforced by mandamus."
The Herald reasons that under the conserva-
tive decision announced by Judge Haight
legislation wiH be needed to remedy the evil
of obstructed business the extent of which
makes its occurrence a public calamity far
more than a series of private wrongs. There
was some sentimental effusion in the prelimi-
nary remarks with which Judge Haight intro-
duced his decision. The judge said the con-
flict between labor and capital was most
serious, and it is the duty of the court to pro-
tect the rights of the poor man, but it can not
say what wages the company shall pay him.
This piece of extra judicial sentimentalism
may perhaps be put down to the account of
an elective judiciary. At least it is not con-
clusive of anything. It may be buncombe,
but has little to do with the matter. The
answer would be, that is not what is
sought; let the companies hire other
men if they do not want the ser-
vices of their late employes. The public
does not ask what wages they are paying.
There have been delays enough in the process
for procuring the mandamus to allow the com-
panies a tolerably good opportunity of ascer-
aining what help they can get to work their
lines. It is reasonably presumed that the lines
can not be allowed to remain disused during
the pleasure of obstinate managers. There
may be objections sufficiently strong to sus-
tain the judge in refusing to grant an immedi-
ate and peremptory mandamus, wl^ch would
determine the strike. It is a delicate thing to
settle such questions by mandamus where suit
is open and great peril is not imminent, but
only a loss, which may be endured while an
orderly method of solution of individual claims
for damages is open, and while the labor ques-
tion by the latter plan is less liable to be in-
juriously affected than by the plan of man
damus. The public interest in the matter is
not wholly one-sided, and even strikers them-
selves, however badly used by companies, will
have learned something if they acquire the
knowledge that courts and mandamuses are
not to be relied on to give labor an incidental
lift in a crisis like theirs. If in the
end the companies shall show that they are
paying all the wages they can pay without
loss, it is hardly probable that either courts
or the legislature, which has fixed or may fix
the rates of freight, will refuse to consider
any such substantial argument, or will order
them to continue business at a loss. As to the
sentimentalism of the judge, he may be criti-
cised for it, though the sentimentalism was
provoked by extreme sentimentalism outside.
That little incident of the process, however,
is some relief in a certain form to the stilted
formality of courts, which are supposed to be
so frigidly decorous as to faii to see and hear
all that transpires around them, aud in any
way, even with some faultiness of taste, it
not wholly discouraging to see any judge
break away somewhat from the starched
stolidity of his caste.
A MANDAMUS DECISION.
There are two things which courts ought
not to do. One is, to make the law; and
another is, to decide matters outside of
law—statutory or common. The difficulty of
ranging each particular grievance under its
proper statute and presenting it in its proper
fornf; the crudenes3 of statutes which in seek-
ing to improve the common law have super-
seded it, but doue so in a defective manner:
the failure in particular cases to find or bring
out circumstances giving adequate and exa<5t
expression to the grievance, the fear of im
plying too much in attempting to establish
enough to justify the action of tha court in
interfering with defendants and curtailing
their freedom, must account for the unsatis-
factory results of numerous efforts to redress
grievances by applications to the courts.
Beside ordinary suits or actions at
law there are other process ?s which
are found convenient, but which
equity are to be carefully watched and
cautiously delt with by the courts, as where
a judge is asked to grant a mandamus or order
compelling a party to do something, or an in-
junction forcing him to stop doing something.
The decision of Judge Haight, of the Supreme
Court of New York, denying the application
of the attorney-general of that State for a
mandamus to compel the New York Central
and the Erie Railroad Companies to receive
and forward freight, is severely criticised by
the New York Herald, which objects to the
ruling that each party having a grievance
should sue the companies, and which cites
rulings of courts, including the Supreme Court
of the United States aud several State Sn
pre me Courts, to establish the principle that
THE ENGLISH-EO YPTIAN WAR FROB-
Some days ago The News gave some statis-
ts of Egypt—the best at hand—partially
showing its population and resources. As it is
likely to continue for some time to be the fo-
cus of the world's attention, all available in-
formation will be of general interest. Spof-
ford's Year Book for 1331 furnishes the latest
reliable data as to the area, population, mate-
rial resources, taxation, industries, etc., of the
khedive's dominions. Egypt contains an area
of SC9,391 square miles, a territory three and
a third times as large as Texas, 107,751 square
miles larger than the Republic of
Mexico, and larger than the territory in-
cluded in Great Britain, France, Germany
Spain and Portugal, which together only ag-
gregate 751,060 square miles. Thi3 vast coun-
try embraces Egypt proper, Nubia and the
Soudan, and the population of the whole, was
estimated in 1377 at 17,402,627. The value of
the imports into the country at that date was
$223,644,000 annually, and the exports that
year amounted to $615,229,643. It is stated
that more than $300,000,000 of this immense
trade was with Great Britain. The Year
Book further shows that in 1879 the public
revenues of Egypt amounted to $49,683,000; the
expenditures for the same time to $51,200,000.
The public debt was $393,420,140, having been
scaled down from above $500,000,000 in the
settlement that England is now trying to en-
force, and which Arabi Pasha repudiates.
The army numbered at that time 59,760 men,
and the navy consisted of fourteen vessels. In
1877, Egypt was operating 1080 miles of rail-
way and 5260 miles of telegraph. The total
population of males capable of bearing arms
was set down at 3,430,523, 41 a host," it has
been remarked, 44 much greater than *ie
army of 1 a thousand thousand,' which was
led to the spoliation of Jerusalem." Frem
these figures the intelligent mind will
doubtless draw the conclusion that Eng-
land is embarked in a perilous
venture, aid may have to devote
her vast resources to its proseoution years be-
fore she conquers. She will easily secure the
coast cities aud may occupy desirable territory
along the frontier, including that bordering
:he Suez canal, but when she undertakes to
send her armies into the interior to subjugate
the country or to dislodge Arabi Pasha's
forces, she may find that she has encountered
a second Schamyl and a national fortitude
equal to that which baffled Russia for nearly a
quarter of a century, or an Abdel-Kader,
whose skill and prowess troubled the French
for so many years in Algeria. If Arabi
should prove to be a great gen-
eral and a consummate organizer
and manager of men, Generals Wolseley and
Allison will have no pleasant pastime in pur
suing 4' the children of the desert" into the
mountain fastnesses of the interior, and into
plains of sand swept by scorching and death-
dealing winds. If Arabi is equal to the great
emergency that confronts him, he has doubt-
less ere this augmented his army to many
times the number England is likely to land in
Egypt at an early day. Every little success
of Arabi's command will inspire confidence
among the Egyptians, and greatly increase his
strength. It is shown that he has vast re
sources to draw from, and all tbe indications
point to the most determined resistance, if not
to a prolonged, bloody and disastrous war.
England, however, has her traditional skill in
diplomacy to fall back on, and as that has
never failed her in the past, so in this imbro-
glio it may achieve w hat her armies may fall
short of accomplishing.
What the Interior Papers Say.
The Brenham Banner speaks of a church
pic-nic which was enlivened by a foot race
in which all the runners were married wo
men, but aoes not give the name of the vic-
tor who outstripped all others in the race.
The Banner has a timely, though probably
a useless, editorial on the prevalent gambling
mania called option dealing. The passion for
games of chance seems to be quite as strong as,
and more general than, the thirst for strong
drink, and, oace fixed on an individual
about as hard to cure. The Banner thinks
dealing in futures should coma under the same
legal rules as gambling of other kinds, and
Why should the man who plays faro be ostracis-
ed, arid the one who wins money by betting what
the price of wheat or cotton will be next month
be lauded? Where is justice, where are the
t=achei^ and the preachers and the moralists?
They have an abundance of time, and words in-
numerable to condemn gambling and whisky-
drinking, but not a word to spare to condemn tbe
dealing in options and futures. Society is yet to
be educated up to a higher standard.
Speaking of the Democratic State platform,
the Uvalde Hesperian says:
The platform declares iu favor of a tariff " for

many will refuse to vote for any man for Con-
gress who is not strongly in favor of a tariff for
protectioa. There are numerous issues brought

whether as a comic work it will equal the
governor's book. The Siftiers may get off
more jokes, but their artist can not cope with
the man who got up the illustrations for

The ninth and tenth resolutions of the De-

used for the benefit of the university, and that
the money heretofore diverted from the uni-
versity and school funds should be repaid to
said funds by the State with the interest
thereon. The tenth resolution is in " favor of

The Belton Journal says:
We sincerely regret the wrangles in the State
convention on the occasion of selecting the su-
pr- me and appellate judges. A scramble for any
office is bad en ugh, but when made for a judicial
position it sickens.
Alluding to the report that money is to be
sent from the Republican national committee
to be used in the pending election in Texas, the
Belton Journal says; "The Texas voters that
money can influence do not go in droves." The
Jourual seldom makes a mistake, but it does
so in this. There is, beside the negroes, a large
floating population in Texas, as every where, who
do not regard the right of suffrage as of more
value than a few dollars or free liquor during
the canvass. We have stringent laws against
bribery in elections which should be rigidly

by all parties that none are free to prosecute

conventions—all do it.
North Texas affects the good old plan of
Rob Roy Macgregor, that those who have tbe
power will take. The Gainesville Register
At the Galveston convention North Texas for
the first time made her Influence felr. There were
180 counties and about 600 votes. Eight counties
in Jiorth Texas, to wit: Dallas, Collin, Cooke,
Tarrant, Ellis, Johnson, Grayson and Lamar, cast
about one-sixth of these 600 votes. The time hr.s
passed when North Tnxas shall be called upon to
cast most of the votes and get none of the offices.
The San Antonio Express thus speaks of the
death and burial of one of the first settlers of
the present city of Galveston:
Major J. A. Settle, whom we reported as in a
v«ry precarious condition at the Santa Rosa hospi-
tal, died Sunday night, from dropsy. His brother
was by his bedside in his list moments. He was
buried from St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral. The
remains were followed to the grave by the Texas
Veterans, of which association he was an honored
member. The major was born in Virginia sixty-
seven year - ago. Coming to Texas about the year
""1, he settled in Galveston, where he lived in
easy circumstances for a number of years. At
that place he was a member of the Galveston Ar-
tillery for coast defense in 1341 and 1842. Since
then he hag lived in several Texas ci ies, but most-
ly in S^n Antonio. He was highly resp-cted by
ail for his very excellent traits of character, and
his 'leath is generally regretted.
The Express also says:
Everything is quiet in this district as far as the
congressional election is concerned. It is taken
for granted that Mr. Upson will be a candidate for
re-electloa, though he has not so announced his In-
tention, and therefore there is as yet no formally
announced candidate In the field. The name of
Hon. John Hancock, of Austin, has been fre-
quently mentioned as a probable candidate, though
we have seen nothing from that gentleman indi-
cating such a oourse. There is an anti-Upson
movement being organized in the northern por-
tion of the district, but what force it will develop
remains to oe seen. Judge Ireland spent Sunday

This kind of talk from an article in the
Sherman Courier is what makes the Dallas
Herald jealous of Galveston. The Courier
prints nearly a column of it:
After a sojourn of two weeks amone her people
we have nothing but pleasant things to say of thi>
beautiful city down by the sea, and we are glad
that we have made her acquaintance. With due
respect for our own home at Sherman, we must
say that we live at "a poor dying rate" when we
contrast the meager enjoyments of life afforded
there with those lavishly found here. If we were
always sure of a competency, we do not know of
a place where we would sooner go to spend the
summer of our short existeuoe than Galveston.
Beside her infinite variety of luxuries to eat, she
has such a kindly, genial atmosphere for the quiet
of old age. Broad streets run from :he
gulf to the bay, intersected at right
angles by wide, smooth avenues, straight aud
direct as a mathematical line across the island.
Two avenues especially, Bath aud Broadway,
cros* each other at right angles through the cen-
tre of the city. They are each some 150 feet wide
and are simply royal iu length and beauty. Let
the eye run along them till lost in the distance,and
it will only take in beautiful residences, some of
which are truly palatial, surrounded by flower
gardens, orange, lemon, banana and fig trees,
which carry their eolden fruit from January until
December. No frost appeared here lasr winter we
are told. The sidewalks are laid with durable
brick or tesseiated flag imported from England or
Germany. But the cap-sheaf of all beau; if ul
things for bordering a street is i he
oleander, from fifteen to twenty feet high
and retaining its gorgeous flowers of
pink and white the year around. Another attrac

beauty incomparable. Were the ordinary Texan

1. Are you a Republican?
2. If you answer nay to the first question,
then say if you are in sympathy or not with

3. Are yon a Greenbacker?
4. If you answer nay to the third question
then please state whether or not you are i:;

These are mooted questions with us, and the
frieuds of Colonel Jones say that ho will an-
swer directly yea or nay, so that there wi 1

TUB MISSISSIPPI PROBLEM.
The Plan of Combining Jetties, Levee»j
Outlets and Locks,
LTo The News.l
Austin, August lr 1882.—A recent article on
the Mississippi problem in your weekly edi-
tion called my attention to that important
subject, and I trust you will allow me to make
the following remarks, for the benefit of all
concerned, through the columns of your
paper. As an eng;n^er and a former native
of the land of dikes and canals, where hydraulic
engine ering has attained such a high state of
perfection, i* is somewhat surprising to me to
noiice that the practical solution of the above
problem should cause so much diversity of
opinion even among government experts, and
probably resuit in the squandering of consid-
erable public money, without permanently
benefiting tbe millions of our fellow-c.tizens
along our national river.
Captain Eads's jetty work at the river's
mouth is, beyond question, not only correct in
principle, but its practical efficiency in accom-
plishing the very purpose for which it was
constructed is already too well known to need
any further comment. The simple lact, how-
ever, that with the gradual removal of the
sandbar the river's current would proportion-
ately increase, causing the river bed toward
the mouth to be gradually raised by deposition
of the solid matter carried along in proportion
to the said increased current, seems either
totally ignored or else pprposely overlooked in
the customary devil-may-care fashion of our
Under the circumstances, the only practical
and permanent solution of the problem is the
construction and thorough maintenance of
several additional outlets for the surplus
water, so constructed, however, that the
velocity of the main stream can be sufficiently
controlled, and never allowed to exceed but
slightly its original velocity before the remo-
val of the bar.
By taking advantage of the many bayous
etc., intersecting the lower Mississippi vallev,
the additional construction of canals of suffi-
cient width, either to straighten out the course
of the said bayous, etc;., or else to connect
them, to form "the most direct outlet to the
gulf, can not present much practical difficulty.
To make them, however, fully effective in
controlling the current's velocity iu the main
stream it is strictly necessary that at least
some of them be provided with locks of the
most substantial character and best design,
placed as the peculiar lay of the country *hali
require, provided with ample sectional inlet
from the main river and properly connected
by telegraph with the river signal service bu-
rt-au, at New Orleans or elsewhere. Wher-
ever local conditions require it. it is highly im-
portant that these canals, etc., shall
at all times be kept at proper
depths at points subject to filling up, and that
wherever necessary the jetty system be also
applied to the outlet of these canals into the
gulf, and to such o her places throughout their
length as shall require it. In this manner the
discharge area of the main river is under con-
trol, the canals carrying off in the most direct
course about all the surplus water as fast as it
reaches given points; the rapidity of the cur-
rents in said canals being in direct ratio to
their shorter course than the main river, ^vhose
many bends, etc., cause greater re.-istance
and less fall in a given air-line distance.
In addition to the above canals, etc., tbe
bed of themaiu river should also be straight-
ened out as much as local circum§tan^s make
it practical, and the present levee a^l jetty
systems kept in the very best possible condi-
tion, while drudging in certain localities after
the recent floods and their heavy deposits is
by no means to be neglected until additional
accumulations render it at once of utmost Im-
portance and very expensive. Finally, to re-
duce the sediment in the river to a minimum,
I am of the opinion that certain natural bends
above St. Louis, as elsewhere, might be util-
ized without great expense or impediment to
navigation, the exact nature of suoh work de-
pending, of course, entirely upon local circum-
stances; and that careful surveys made in the
upper or central part ef the Mississippi valley
may eventually lead to the discovery of one or
more natural outlet channels, or the
practicability of a consti-ucted outlet
canal, which is 'also provided with
locks similar to those described above, and by
means of which the river can be partially
tapped above as we;l as nearer to its mouth.
It can be proved by the experience of man}r
similar works abroad that there is no dang> r
whatever of the formation of another bar in
the future by reducing the velocity of the
main river currents again to about what it
formerly was, when said bar existed, pro-
vided the proposed system is followed and all
the work executed and permanently main-
tained.in the very best manner known to the
present engineering profession.

The Valley of the Carrizal.
by william hiaden.
[Written for The News.]
It was our fortune on the 5th ultimo to meet
the general manager and the general superin-
tendent of the Mexican National Railway—
Mr, G. Clinton Gardner and Mr. S. T.fFuller—
at a hostlery in the little city of Villaldama,
Mexico, distant 110 miles from Laredo, Texas,
by rail. The good lady of the house paid her
guests assiduous attention, poured their^coffee,
and prepared their eggs with the proper quan-
tum of salt until these suited to a nicety, and
assisted in every way with matronly care to
make each of her patrons 44 as much at home "
as possible. Still the wanderer, fretting to
bejpleased with change of service and fare,
essays to prove some other inn, and finds that
mine host of the San Pablo offers a comforta-
ble retreat, hard by the church, and regales
his visitors at a comfortable table
and lodges them iu well-kept beds.
Breakfast being over, we were joined
by Don Salome Botello, a prominent citizen
and leading merchant of the city, and we
took the early morning train for his ranch
the Santa Ysabel—situated near the line of
raiiway, elghtv-five miles south westward
from Laredo. The general manager had his
horses and ambulance in waiting at the sta-
tion, and from here we drove across, five miles,
to tbe Hacienda del Carrizal, at the base of the
northern side ofjthe great Iron mountain,which,
rising suddenly from the plain, rears its lofty
peaks and scarred front and awful form be-
y nd the clouds, from 5000 to 6000 feet above
the valley and a thousand feet more above the
level of the sea. It is called El Cerro del
Carrizal, from carriaa, a cane, on account of a
canebrake on the border8 of the bro<>k at the
toot, the waters of which are utilized to irri-
gate the rich sugar plantations of Don Salome,
through which they flow.
Here the valley is about fifteen miles wide,
narrowing southward until the eastern and
western ranges almost unite at La Puerta de
la Gacha, fifty miles distant, and opens again
into an extensive plain, surrounded by high
mountains in the distance, and terminates
abi uptly at the base of tee great Sierra Madre,
immediately south of Monterey.
Among the many indigenous plants of this
valley, and of the mountains as well, are the
lechuguilla and maguay. From each of these
a fiber called ixtle is made by a laborious pro
cess with m inual labor. This fiber is exported
in large quantities, and eaters largely into thj
manufacture of brushes, mats, cordage, rugs,
etc. The product of the maguay is much
finer than that of the Icchuhuilia and In Mex-
ico is woven into fine textures and is used by
shoemakers to manufacture their best thread.
No machinery has yet b en invented, or, at
lea-t, the Mexican people know of none, suited
to economically break, hackle aud prepare
this natural product for use, and such ma-
chinery is greatly desired and inquired for,
and its Invention offers a field for Yankee
The soil of the valley is exceedingly rich,
and where water can be obtained for irrig i-
tion very productive. Take, as an example,
one of Don Salome's ca. e-fields, and we have
seen many similar, from 600 rows of cane,
each seventy-five varas, or 207 feet, in length,'
he obtains 2C0 cargas of sugar, weighing"800
pounds each,'which he s lis at his hacienda at
$13 per carga, yielding the snug sum of $3600.
The want of water in abundance is the great
drawback, and here another field opens for

rich vestments of the priests had long ago,
with the altar pieces, been removed to Candela
and Santiago. The belle, too, were gone save
one, without a fougue, still pendant near the
dwelling. We struck it to test its tone, and
if possible to awake the voices of the past callr
ing to arms, to the marriage feast, to the
burial of the de^d, and it gave
One sound to all. yet each
Sent a meaning to its speech,
And tne meaning was manifold.
Dinner being over, we drove up to the mouth
of a wonder!ul ouve which we had come
especially to visit. The entrances are about
i ue mile from the ranch. The road, though a
little rough and considerably up hill, was
pretty good, and presented no difficulties as a
carriage-way. At the lower entrance a stream
bursts out, and before taking its course down
the mountain side is caught in a basin beneath
the shade of trees. Here we sac and refreshed
ourselves from this pure spring, and in order
to go dry-shod, prepared to enter the cave by
the upper entrance, BOine few yards abovo.
We had provided ourselves with a barometer
and compass, but having made some few read-
ings for altitude and after determining that
the mouth of the oave faced about due north,
they passed from recollection during our weird
passage under ground ami 1st the wonders and
attractions in the interior of the mountain.
We had two guides, trusty servitors of Don
Salome, who accompanied us from the
hacienda, provided with lamps and a
stout rope to assist in difficult descents. The
temperature, though high, was not uncomfort-
able, and the air was pure, evidencing good
ventilation, though there were no currents
enabling us to accurat&ly determine whence it
came. The cave for 200 yards or more was
nearly as broad as an ordinary road, and ten
to twenty feet in height. Then the lowering
roof made us bend to avoid the rocky cover-
ing, and further on to stoop lower still, and,
as we *tead ly progressed, brought us humbly
to our hands and knees, until, finally, prone
upon the floor, working our way upon our
arms, we emerged int 3 a lofty hall and took
rest under the high dome which our guides
termed 44 La Gloria "—another name for
heaven. Soon after we entered, on the left,
the "yaso" hall, whence, leaving, we contin-
ued our devious way through vaulted passages
and stately rotundas, whose high domes lay
far above the power of our lamps to illumi-
nate, owing to the vastness of their height.
Thence we came to a different descent, where
we made our rope fast to a convenient hole
wrought ages ago by the action of the water
upon the rocky side, and swinging ourselves
down, one at a tira», a distance of ten or fif-
teen feet, to an incline leading to a narrow
passage, in which, by bracing against the
sides, we descenea ten feet more, and thence
downward—how for I can not say, save that
it is close by and of easy access, to the basin
of the warm spring of which muoh was told
us. The temperature was not high—hardly
tepid, in our iudgment—but it is said to pos-
sess wonderful Invigorating properties, and it
is certainly pleasant to the taste. Taming
from this branoh we made our way easily to
another route, and brought up upon the bank
of a running stream having no known outlet,
bringing to mind Coleridge's lines:
In Xanadu did Kubla Kahn
A stateiy pleasure dome decree.
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measurless to man,
Down to a sunless sea.
We stopped here to learn something more
from the "guides of the great extent of the
cave which they had traversed,up this branoh
far beyond to where the stream bursts througl
the rocks forbidding further progress. Though
much still remained to be explored, yet, as the
day was waning fast, we made haste to catch
the evening train, and though we made a
hasty exit and a rapid drive we arrived too
late and per force made our camp upon the
siding. Don Salome dispatched a messenger
to the Santa Isabel, who, after two hours, re-
turned with an ox cart, and brought us an ex-
cellent supj^er aud hot coffee. Lamps were
lighted, lor the day was done and the stars
were twiuklink through the ambient moun-
ta n air; the cloth was spread upon a flat-car,
and gathering'round we did ample justice to
our k ind host's provisions, but not lwfore the
special train came to take us to our respective
destinations and to rest.

At the hacienda we had an enjoyable din-
ner, which was hospitably spread in a large
apartment, tastefully, and upon a snow-white
cloth, and iu true Spani.-h style, followed by
well made coffee. In the meantime we strolled
around to examine the out-buildin~s, the an-
cient church, the former plaza, and there-
mains of the a artmen's inside of the line of
wall, now destroyed, which once served as a
bulwark against attacking savages. The stack

the smelting works once stood, when the silvor

The vast territory extending from La Ceja,
or the divide between tha waters of the Rio
Grande and the Rio Salado to the Hui-
sache, near Villaldama, say 100 miles
long by 30 miles in width, was a conces-
sion from Mier y Teran to the Lecen-
ciado Aquirre of Saltillo. He sold it to Fran-
cisco Gonzales Leon, who bought it for $5Q,U00
and paid $25,000 cash and gave his obligation
for the remainder. To make final payments
he sold the large estates of La Ceja and La
Baranca, and then to meet pressing wants,
mortgaged the well-known Mesa de los Cartu-
janos—a table mountain 1600 feet high, con-
taining an area of 70.000 acres, up the precipi-
tous sides of which neither man nor beist can
climb, and to which there is but one single
entrance by a road too steep even for a horse-
mau—for the paltry sum of a few thou-
sand dollars. " A iter this Leon took
sidts in a revolution and was to a
