ing corpse for tne proposed Albuquerque
& Dnrango railroad, writes from Oter's
ranch, about sixty miles northeast of

Work is progressing as fast as a force of
ten men can make it, and tlie whole dis
tance will be covered by Christmas.
The people, of this city and the' Rio
(ramie valley are anxious for another
railroad, besides the Atchison & Topeka,
and they have liberally donated for the
preliminary survey of the new road.

penetrate the wonderfully rich country
northeast of the city.

Loudon, Nov. 2i. The officers' rctmrts
of the Takow massacre contain details
almost without parallel, even in the his
tury of China. The members of the Bel
gian mission bad no opportunity of e
cjping. The slaughter commenced with
the killing of the native converts, tMtiy
of whom were put to death with fiendish
cruelty. Children of tender years were
seized by the savages, backed with
knives and roasted at a huge fire. A
worse fate still befel the nuns, who were
subjected to the grossest indignities. The
Belgian priests were cruelly tortured.
One hal bis heart and tongue torn from
bis hxly and was burned by the savag.-s
in their murderous frenzy. The most as
tounding statement is that after tbe mis
creants had been satiated with outrage
and slaughter, they were feasted and
feted by tbe leading Chinese mandarin
in the district. The foreien diplomatic
body at Pekin is simply furious, and the
wbole European colony is boiling witti
indignation. The news from Mongolia
is increasing in seriousness. The rebel
forces are reported to be growing laiger,
and their forward march has been con
tinued so far uninterruptedly. The im-
perial troops have not yet been in touch
with reliels. Further detachments of
troops have been ordered forward. The
rebels in their southward march occu
pied a town without resistance being
made by tbe iwpulace. At all the places
through which they passed the rebels
have made requisitions upon tbe inhabi
tants for supplies.
London. Nov. 29 Tbe Chronicle's
correspondent at Tien-tsin telegraphs:
Li Hung has received news that im
perial troops witnessed the recent massa
cre at the Belgian missions without mak
ing any effort to check the mob. Li
Hung doubts the truth of the report.
Elsewhere it is feared that the story ia i
true. The revolution is spreading in the
north. The Mongolian rebels are advano
ing southward and a conflict with the
imperial forces is imminent. The ex
citement is increasing in the neighbor
hood of Peking.
London, Nov. 29. Advices from Shang--hai
are to the effect that tbe rebel forces
in Mancharia defeated theimjierial troops
sent to eoppress the rising in that regions
The imperial forces numbered 4000, and
the defeat causes the government the
gravest anxiety. Reinforcements to the
number of 6000. have been despatched
from Tien Tsin to oppose the rebels, who
are marching to Pekin. If the imperial
troops are again defeated the position of.

President Piexotto demands. If the re-'
volt is continued Piexotto will use all
