Astoria, Oregon, Sunday Horning:, April 22, 1883
"WITH THE MEXICANS-
The city . of Mexico is what
Paris is to France, being the seat
of government, the center of a
rapidly growing1 railroad system,
the mart of commerce and the
abode of nearly all the wealthy
land owners of the republic. Life
and property are perfectly safe,
though 1 one day saw a large
knife taken from under the cloak
of a countryman when he was
searched at the citj' gates. Police
are stationed about 100 yards
apart all over the city. They are
well-dres-ed and paid $1 per day.
There are several things which
strikes a stranger favorably in the
streets of the city. The people
move about politely without
crushing or crowding. Ladies and
children can icturn from the
theaters, cafes, and Zocaio, at late
hours of the night without moles
tion or such offenses jis might
cross their path in London; and
what has been accomplished in a
citv of oOO.OOO inhabitants is beinjr
extended to the neighboring cities
and country districts, with everj'
prospect of soon rendering all
parts of the country as safe to
trarcl in by day or night as in the
city of Mexico itself. The Mexi
can world keeps early hours.
Chocolate about 7 a. jr.; a heavy
"square meal," called almurezo, it
may be breakfast, luncheon or
dinner, between II and 2; in the
evening, chocolate, ices or some
light refreshment, followed by the
opera, theaters, or, what to me was
far more preferable, an excellent
band of music in the gardens of
the Plaza. The hotel and board
ing house accommodation of the
city is barely sufficient for the
present influx of American visi
tors; and, should a gentleman de
sire to visit the city with his wife
and family it would bo well to se
cure rooms beforehand by tele
graph or letter. The Mexican hotels
are for lodging only, and your
meals must be eaten at the restau
rant attached, or elsewhere, as
fancy may dictate. The street
called San Francisco street, pro
longed by Los Plateros, nearly a
mile in length, and running from
the Plaza Mayor to the beautiful
gardens of the Alameda is, from
its position and excellent shops,
the most attractive and fashiona
ble street in the Cinco de Mayo,
from the Teatro Nacional to the
cathedral, is partly under con
struction. It will be a noble
street when completed and the
avenue of trees continued its
whole length; but unless it is lined
with shops, it will not compete,
from a business point of view, with
San Francisco street, which is the
great thoroughfare of the city.
The shops have a perky, Parisian
appearance, not that of the pala
tial establishments on the boule
vards, but rather that of the third
class streets of Paris. The city
swarms with soldiers, and the
sound of the trumpet call startles
the ear at all hours of the day and
in the most unexpected places.
The soldiers are generally seenT
walking about loosely in large
groups, under the charge of an
officer or the sergeant this for
fear of their absconding. They
are soldierly little men and fairly
well dressed. But tlie rural guard
carries off the palm. These men
are fine, smart fellows, and wear a
most picturesque uniform of soft
bluff leather, scarlet silk necktie
and sash, grey felt sombrero, rich
ly laced with silver, gauntlet
gloves and high buff boots, with
spurs the rowels as large as
cheese plates carbine, revolvers
and sword. Their horses are hich
ly bred, and so exquisitely trained
that they obey the presure of the
knee, the rein being seldom, if
If a countn or government may
gain credit for the excellence of
its philanthropic institutions, 1
would rank Mexico, under its new
regime, as high as any country 1
risked; edusation is compulsorv
between the ages of 5 and 14;
waifs, stra3s and neglected chil
dren are swept into the reformato
ries, and the establishment for
teachiitg the deaf and dumb ena

of their own. Brockhhur&tfs
A Hundred Years Hence.
Some people often wish that
they were dead, and if this involv
ed their living by-and-by instead
of now, how many will wish it, on
reading the prophecy of the Rev.
Mr. Fincke, an English clergyman
who traveled much in America ten
yean ago. He now ventures to
tell what he thinks is to be the fu
ture of "Englishry," by t hich he
means the English speaking peo
ple on the globe a centuiy hence.
He calculates that by that time
there will be one thousand millions
of them living under the same in
stitutions and cherishing the same
ideas, social and political, "in the
United States, Canada, Australia,
South Africa, and Great Britain.
The S00,000.000 which he assigns
to the United States will overflow
into Canada, into Mexico, Guate
mala, Columbia, Bolivia, and Peru,
afterward into the valley of the
Amazon, along the whole range of
the Andes, into the islands of the
Pacific, across which they will join
hands with their kindred in New
Zealand and Australia. The Eng
lish settlements in South xVfrica,
now essentially American, will
spread over Southern Africa, push
ing the natives to the equator.
The American fanner is to furnish
the type of this new society.
There will be no savages or serfs,
few drones or men of luxury; all
be able to read and write
and to use their acquirements
They will have homes of their
ovn, and property enough of the
very best and most educative
kind that is, in land to yield to
their intelligent industry sufficient
means ofsupport They will have
no social or political superiors,
and will manage their own affairs.
There will be few or none looking
forward to a pauper's fate. The
lives of the majority will be spent
in the cultivation of their own land
on the same terms that the Ameri
can farmer now cultivates his.
Morality will in th:s society
have tremendous force, because
there will be only one morality for
all, and not as now a separate
morality for each class, it will be
supported by the opinion of all.
Women will play a larger part in
the work of society than they have
ever done. No pursuits will be
favored by endowments or boun
ties. The competition between
nations will be intellectual, not
military competition. Oratory,
painting, sculpture and architec
ture will grow under it as never
before. Money will be in greater
use and the precious metals have
a higher value than ever. Relig
ion will have as strong a hold as
ever on the human heart. At the
head of this mighty community
the Unite! States will stand
morally though not politically.
The president of the United States
will be its foremost man, and "the
predominant power1' will be the
A reporter of the Norfolk (Va.)
Virginian, recently referred in
that paper to a conversation with
Prof. Cromwell, the world-renowned
art exhibitor, wherein he
states that he had some year or so
before suffered excruciating tor
ments from iheumatism, and that
he had tried all kinds of medicines
and so-called cures all without
effect. He heard, however, of St.
Jacobs Oil, and resolved to give it
a trial, which he did, and he stated
that its effect on him was almost
magical. A complete cure was ef
fected, and since then he had nev
er suffered from rheumatism. But
in order that he might be at all
times prepared for the enemy, he
never traveled without carrying in
his trunk a bottle or so of St. Ja
No Monu Sick Aeadacus. For
persons of delicate health and nerv

I went up to visit a herd owned
by Mr. Reeve, of Minnesota, and
the day being cold we took an am
bulance with a top. For some
reason or other, the cattle became
frightened at my conveyance, and
resented my bringing it among
them. In ail their lives they had
never een an ambulance wih a
white top, and a railroad could not
have made a greater impression
on a Dutch farmer. They would
have none of it. A dozen cows
and caUos ran away, bellowing
like mad, and a few tat steers
came up and shook their heads
menacingly at us, but trotted away,
their big sides shaking with beef.
"We laughed heartihy and were en
joying the commotion our arrival
had created when we saw the
herder coming on his horse at full
speed and firing his revolver to at
tract our attention. He pointed
to some timber near by and we
understood. "Whipping up the
mules we got into the timber at
quickly as possible, and just
in time, for here came the
herd shaking the earth with
their tread. A thousand mad
dened cattle surged around us.
In the timber we were safe, but if
we had been out in the opening
we would have been crushed in
an instant and every mule disem
bowled by the horns of the herd.
It took some time to quiet them
down and induce them to yield to
the authority of the whip of the
herder. One old bull, who knew
perfectly well it was all right,
kept up a display of fight, and
would not stop bellowing until I
told the herder to give him a shot
from his revolver through the
brisker, when he trotted away.
We sneaked the ambulance off
under the hills and got it out of
sight. Gen. JSrisbin.
