Itu Ceon Arizona september 5correspondence of the Pittsburg Telegraph i am just up from the City of Mexico and As i promised you a letter from Here i must resume specie payments. There Are plenty of things to write about but one does t know what to give the preference. Every thing is on a magnificent scale from lie spiders which spin webs to the frontiersman who spins yarns. I guess i had better Tell you a Little Story that has just Lieen related to me. It Wilt give you a faint idea of what kind of Story tellers or Indian fighters i Ain not certain which they raise out Here. A there comes a Mountain Joe on his Pony a said my Friend colonel Fleance Fitz Roy today As we were seated in the Shade of a spreading Mulberry in the grand in Laza. The person referred to was a handsome looking Young Man of perhaps thirty five something above the medium height of Graceful Carriage and agile appearance. He was armed with a half carbine half Navy revolver that Hung in a Belt by his Side and he was Clad in a Buckskin suit. A a a Mountain Joe a As you Call him colonel seems to be rather a Fine specimen of the frontiersman but i done to see any thing remarkable about his Pony to which you particularly a thereby hangs a tale which i will unfold if you feel like listening to a go on Tell it by All Means. A a a Mountain Joe a As he is called was born somewhere in the Eastern states and infatuated with the Indian stories he had read ran away from his parents and came to the Bouth West. But he has had some hard knocks since and the hardest were received in earning that Pony or rather $5 Worth of it. You see a Tewy it Muido whose ranch lies out along the Pinto r years ago old Senor Roch lies out along the Pinto Road owned that Pony and one of the loveliest daughters in these parts. He was immensely wealthy and owned several mines and there was no telling How much Gold and Silver Bullion he had stored away a now All the Young Fellows around Here were crazy after the girl Inez but Joe set his heart on the Pony and wanted to buy it. He is a fellow who always has his own Way and it is a blessed Good thing that his head is always right otherwise somebody would get into trouble. But when Joe tried to get the Pony every body thought he was walked for once. A the Senor asked $65 for it and Joe dug around to raise the Money. He raised it All except $5, and wanted Romuldo to Trust him for the rest of it till he would come Back from a Hunting expedition. This the old 8panish curmudgeon refused to do and Joe vainly appealed to his friends to loan him the other v. Failing he got mad and swore that he would not live in Sucha Community. One Day he left and was not heard from for nearly a year. A in the mean time a band of Kickapoo indians swooped Down upon rom Uldon a ranch during his absence in town ran off his Stock and carried the pretty Inez away into the Mountain fastness. Several parties went out in search of the captive Only to be ambushed and whipped. Then it was that Senor Romuldo began to bewail the absence of a Moun Tain Joe a for every body had Faith that he could have rescued the Lovely Inez from the Fate that was in store for her. A finally just As the unhappy spaniard was giving up in despair Joe suddenly put in an appearance. A if you will recover in child a said Romuldo a i will give you a Mil lion dollars. You May have half my property and whatever else you May 1 am not particular about the Reward a said Joe a but i will try and Rescue the a and then he set about making preparations for the undertaking. Several Gallant a Oung Fellows volunteered to go with him it he declined their services. He oiled up that overgrown revolver of his stowed away 500 cartridges and about ten pounds of jerked meat in his clothes and taking the Trail to the Kickapoo set out in the Early morning. He followed it All Day cautiously and by night was far up in the mountains the next Day near noon As he reached the brow of an immense precipice the redskins opened upon him from the rear. A the was completely trapped. All Means of Retreat were Cut off and there was death both before and behind him. He rude up his mind to die game. Dodging behind a Rock he opened with his shooting Iron and made it Lively for the an Bushers. Every shot told and soon a dozen indians were stretched out on the Mountain top. But their comrades were undaunted and nearly a Hundred of them made a dash to seize him he had already killed Twenty six of them but he saw that powered. A flight was impossible and preferring to kill himself rather than be tortured by the indians he rushed to the precipice fully two thousand feet High and leaped boldly into space. A but during his fearful descent he did not lose Liis presence of mind. He was Goin Down near the face of rocks and observed that stunted Pines and hemlocks grew out of the frequent crevices. He began grasping a the tops of them which first Bent and then broke but he found that he was breaking the Force of his fall. For the last three Hundred feet the Bushes were thick and Joe was soon going Down dropping from one to the other in perfect safety. A at last he reached the Bottom suffering from a few bruises and several rather serious wounds received in the desperate contest with the indians overhead. And just As he was congratulating himself upon his wonderful escape another pack of red devils broke from the Chapparal and opened fire another hand to Hana contest took place and Joe killed nine of Bis enemies. He then started to run along the base of a Cliff when on a sudden the Earth gave Way under him and he fell into a deep fissure. The indians were immediately upon him and fired two or three volleys Down the Hole and then Cov ered it no with immense boulders. A Joe had fallen some Twenty feet and re Alising the danger from shots from above got under the shelving of the Rock and thi the a a to f realising his desperate situation lighted with Pine knots and sputtering lamps and there reclining on a Couch of Bear skins he beheld Inez Romuldo talking with an old Indian Squaw who apparently was her Jailer. A at length the old hag withdrew in an opposite direction and Joe speedily Mode his presence known to the fair captive. A hurried consultation followed and the whole situation was taken in. A Inez explained that she was held a prisoner by the chief of the tribe red Eagle who was determined that she should marry him. Red Eagle was a half blood his father being a spaniard. The Entrance to the Cave was narrow Well concealed and its existence known Only to a few of the indians. These still swarmed in the mountains but in two weeks were going South for a raid upon the settlements and Only a Small guard were to he left in the Cave. A fall this Inez hurriedly explained to Joe and it was agreed that he was to lie con sealed in the unexplored portions of the Cave to the rear recover from his wounds and wait till the indians left before attempting a Rescue while Inez was to furnish him with provisions from her own allowance. A the chief red Eagle in the mean time treated her with distinguished consideration offering her no indignities and ordering that she should have whatever she called for. After three weeks of weary waiting Inez Learned from the old woman that red Eagle and his braves had gone South and that four braves had been left to guard her night and Day. They took up their places in the far Corner of the great Hall and she waited impatiently until they should go to sleep. Day and night were the same in the Cave but finally the braves stretched themselves out one after another to sleep. That sleep was their last for four shots from Joe a revolving carbine fired in rapid succession killed them All before either was aware of nis Dan a. A the old woman was forced to guide them to the Entrance to the Cave which was found after Many and tortuous windings and Inez and Joe emerged from their living Tomb just after Sunrise. Joe then saw that he must soon be Over a Stigalt a be set about extricating himself and found that he was in a vast Cave with a Large number of ramifications. In the midst of pitchy darkness he began Hia exploration which continued for four or five Days but which to him seemed As Many a ask i a the jerked meat on his person satisfied the cravings of his appetite and he found plenty of pure water to drink. At last he gave to and Lay Down to die. Listening intently he heard what seemed like human voices and this once More gave him heart crawling in the direction from which the sounds came lie at length reached a Point Froni which he was Able to look into a vast Rotunda fitted up in Barbaric splendor and any thing that you will ask but with All that the Senor could do or my i he had passed entirely through the Mountain. A Romuldo and his friends had Long Given them up for dead and their feelings May be better imagined than described when they returned Safe and sound after their miraculous adventures. Ever since then Joe has Ridden that Pony and has been perfectly jut you done to mean to Tell me colonel that Joe got no other Reward than that miserable piece of horse flesh. He married Inez of a a that a the Way the Story writers would fix things a said the colonel quot but they never Deal in facts As i have done. The Senor was As Good As his word and got a Surveyor to Divide the ranch into two equal parts and showed Joe about fifteen cart loads of Gold and Silver Bullion As his a no sir a said Joe. A i want none of these. I want that sorrel Pony. Here Are the $60, and i want to know if you will Trust me for the other $5. A a in la give you the Pony and any thing else you want a said the Senor. A you deserve 2 say Joe made him take the $60 and let him have the Pony with $5 due on a Well that is the most unnatural ending to a wonderfully romantic Story i Ever heard colonel Fleance Fitz Roy there is something wrong with the sentiment and civilization of a now done to deceive yourself there again a it it in the colonel. A Mountain Joe and Nez Romuldo Are to be married next week and we will both go to the the True Story of Nai Epps. Nearly every body is familiar with the romantic version of the life of Mazeppa. The starch is entirely taken out of it by a correspondent of the new York times who recently visited the romanian City of Galatz where the Ukraine hero was buried a in the Church of st. Mary is to be seen the Tomb of Mazeppa the famous Hetman of the cossacks immortalized by Byron. His adventures Sung by the Bard were in reality much More commonplace than As we have Learned to know them. Mazeppa was a Oung Cossack of the Ukraine who havin Een ennobled by the russian decline to pay his taxes. For this the local governor count Malhoski ordered him to to stripped naked by his servants and tied to the Back of his own horse with his head to the animals tail the horse was then flogged pistols were discharged close to his ears Ana after being thus excited he was turned Loose. The Road leading to Mazeppa a House was a bridled path leading through the Woods which were particularly Fertile in Thorn Bushes and wild Pear Trees and the infuriated beast accustomed to follow this route before dashed off As soon As he was at Liberty homeward where his master arrived very much the worse for his journey. He had however enough strength left to Call for the Gate keeper who recognized his voice and opened the door to close it immediately to keep out what he supposed to be Mazeppa a Host at last other servants recovering rom their fear came to his assistance and. Put him to bed where he remained some months Between Ife and death from the in Turies he had received. When he recovered get exiled himself voluntarily to Poland and joining himself to the fortunes of Charles xii., was mortally wounded at Pul tows and dying at Barnitz his body was brought to and buried at Galatz.

A laughable incident occurred last night while he was feeding it. He had been holding Suchias and other Flowers in his hand from which the Little Beauty was enjoying a Choice repast and he had also Given it some syrup. Suddenly a Blossom which has lately appeared on the gentleman proboscis attracted the attention of the Bird and he made a dive for it finding it a fraud when it was reached. When a nose gets so attractive with blossoms that even humming Birds go for it it is time the owner of such nose donned the Blue ribbon.

A terrible Story of the of the Cito Rwjr Mariner of the Tern i Cumuli in unable Keren Day at Hea in an open Roath the wild despairing cry for a Tater waved at lao by a merciful Providence. New Orleans times october 2d. Yesterday a times reporter interviewed the men of the steamship Gussie who for seven nights and six Days without food or water were the sport of the Waves in the Gulf. The men five in number showed the evidence of their hardship in their emaciated appearance yet in the satisfaction of being As it were snatched from death talked lightly of the hardships they endured yet rough out their statements a vein of solemnity of thanks to god for their deliverance could be remarked. Summed up the harrowing details of their sufferings Are to the following effect the steamship Gussie Captain Richard Hill owing to the fact of the tanks at Indian Ola being destroyed by the storm left that port with a cargo of cattle and without the necessary Supply of water. Captain Hill made for South West pass to replenish his Wate and then proceed on his journey to Havana. On the morning of the 19th of september the weather was fair wind North West blowing about seven knots an hour. About 10 30 the same night South West pass Light bore North North East distance nine Miles. At 10 35 p. The ship was hauled for the Light when the starboard Shaft broke. Finding it impossible to remedy the evil and loth to Drift around at the mercy of the winds. Captain Hill concluded to Send a boat to Southwest pass for assistance. The boat was launched and at Midnight the wind veered West by North blowing a Good six knot Breeze. The weather was fair enough Moon Shin no brightly yet from time to time it would be obscured by a passing Cloud. The steamship then drifted eastward. The next Day the 20th, the wind was West North West weather still fair the engineers being All the time engaged in the Endeavor to repair Dama yes which by noon they finally succeeded in doing and the ship got ahead at the rate of one knot an hour. An observation being taken by Captain Hill he found himself in latitude 28 39 and Longitude 88 50, thirty four Miles from the place of the breakdown East by South half South. On the 21st the wind was about the same North North West. At 7 30 in. South pass was sighted and after some delay use tug Rio Grande took the Gussie in Tow bringing her to the City. In the mean time the unfortunate men were passing through the terrible ordeal of shipwrecked mariners. After leaving the ship the boats Crew consisting of John Duffy chief Otto i a Dan Mcdonald mat Bayron John o Neil Dean Crockett and Joseph Davis pulled for Itie South West pass Light secure in the seaworthiness of their metallic life baht and without a thought of the danger that threatened them. Not a Man of them but what thought he would reach the Light in three hours at most yet As hour after hour slipped by and they found Attiat they made no headway against the current despair beset their souls. Encouraged by mate Duffy they Bent to their oars hut to no Avail. Daylight found them with their Compass Ami two lamps out of sight of land exhausted by their exertion without food or water and a prey to the elements. On the morning of the 29th they saw a ship supposed to be the Medora and so close that they could see the men at work aboard that vessel but in vain they tried to signal her by Means of a shirt hoisted on an oar. She was soon lost to View and despair beset them. Davis gave out and Lay exhausted in the Bottom of the boat. On the second Day they saw a Steamer Low Down on the horizon bound eastward but at too great a distance to see them. Truly then they gave themselves up for lost. Bayron however managed to improvise a sail out of three shirts and slowly they breasted the current until the Gale reached them and for three Days they were storm tossed on the Crest of the Waves. Then followed a Calm yet the sea ran High. Their parched throats craved for water. Mcdonald desperately drank the Saline element which surrounded him but finding that that Only augmented his thirst he and his comrades drank their urine. Desperately they glared at each other. Hunger gnawed at their vitals yet they refrained from cannibalism. Bayron says he Felt the presence of some invisible at his shoulder and he knew that it was his god urging him to be of Good heart and he would Succour him. Sharks surrounded the boat curve Ting in the water As if in anticipation of the Dainty morsels of human flesh in store for them if possible lending additional horror to the Seene. The plug was taken out of the Bottom of the boat and the water entered in until she was half full. Then the men in turns Lay Down in the water until thoroughly saturated thus distilling the water into their body. In vain the unfortunates say they attempted to think of a hereafter the most trivial things in their i \ passed before them like a Panorama. Bayron thought of watering the cat on the Gussie and imagined that he wus reeling in the troughs. Mcdonald had visions of glaciers All seemed in their sense delirium to be in Elysian Only to return to the full realization of their surroundings. Water water every where. And All the boards did sir Ink water water every where Aud not a drop to drink. The sea went Down and three Large brass pins belonging to a girl who lived in the family and stole them a and How being detected by his Good Mother the baby was Given a whole Day to reflect upon the enormity of his offence and then he was thoroughly whipped.

Sick throwing Dice for death. Curlon or Currence at a Saloon tic old fatality about a Farly of Tfir teen. From the new York Mercury there was a party of politicians and officeholders All men of substance assembled awhile ago in Mitschell a Saloon in Hoboken new Jersey discussing politics. A six it slay politics one Side and Chuck the Bones for the drinks a said one of the party. The Dice were accordingly produced and the gentlemen amused themselves for some time when another of the party a Jolly Good natured f How suddenly remarked a gentlemen i see that there Are just thirteen of us an unlucky number so it is said to be seated at any festive Board and though i am not at All superstitious i propose that we shall throw the Dice to see which of us shall die this startling proposition threw the party from a merry into a grave snood and several dissented. He Pooh poohed the various objections raised and finally All but one agreed to the proposition yet the thirteenth said if they wanted to carry out the matter any one else who chose might throw for him. A i remember the matter very distinctly a said sex sheriff Reinhardt of Hudson county to a Mercury reporter yesterday. A yes yes the Captain lost and he was the first one to go. He was a Fine Man the picture of health and looked As though he might outlive the whole of us. Let me see. There was we. Acker Captain Chas. Waas of the Sci Luetzen Park police Louis g. Ham Enstein now one of our aldermen Louis Mitschell Jun. Chas. Bornhei Nimr capt. G. Neuscheler myself and six others whose names i can to recall. We were having a pleasant Little recreation in Mitschell a place when some one said a lets Chuck the Dice for this was done and we were enjoying ourselves immensely when Captain Neuscheler said something about there being just thirteen of us in the party and making the startling proposition that we should throw Dice to see who should die first. I Chuck the Bones not Itiat in a at All superstitious but i done to believe in trifling in matters of life or death our time la come soon enough without gambling Over it. Some others objected but the Captain laughed them out of their fears. As i Chuck the Bones some one else threw for me either Acker or Mitschell or the Captain himself i done to remember now. When All had thrown it was found that the Captain had lost but he made Light of it and tossed the subject Oil his mind As he tossed off his Glass of Beer. We chatted together awhile and then the party broke up and like myself i suppose the rest thought nothing More of the circumstance until a Short time afterwards when it was painfully recalled by hearing that our Friend Neuscheler was dead. He had by some Means of other contracted the smallpox which soon carried him off. We were All greatly surprised i Tell you when we heard of it Ami we ail attended his funeral. The Captain lost and was the first to go. All the rest of the party Are still alive and in Good health. In a not at All superstitious in such matters hut it was a very strange a Story of Dickon appropriated. Scribner s monthly on one of Captain morgans voyages from America to England he had under his care a very attractive Young lady who speedily distinguished herself by reducing five Young gentlemen to the verge of distraction. She was quite ready to marry one but what could she do with five in the embarrassment of her riches she sought the Captain who after a few moments thought said a a it a a Fine Calm Day suppose by Accident you should fall overboard ill have a boat lowered ready to pick you up and you can take the Man who loves you Well enough to jump after this novel pro it position met the Young la Aye a views and the programme was accordingly carried out with the Trilling exception that four of the Young men took the plunge and being picked up by the boat presented themselves a dripping quartet upon the ships deck. The object of their in dampened ardor no less wet than themselves fled to her state room and sent for her adviser the Captain. A now Captain cried she in despair a what ant i Todo a a nah my dear a replied the Captain a if you want a sensible husband tale the dry one quot a which she did. Nor breath nor motion Day after Day Day after Day they struck nor breath a idly a a painted ship upon a painted Ocean on the morning of the seventh Day the Brig coquette Captain Cornel Hove in sight and with a last expiring Effort they signalled her. The Brig saw the sign of distress and bore up for them reaching them Only to find that with the exception of Bayron All had yielded to the demands of nature and helplessly Lay about the boat. They were taken aboard and kindly treated but despite the efforts of the Captain Mcdonald died. Yesterday the brio was taken in Tow and brought to the City. A strange coincidence is that of Bayron who fifteen years ago while a boy waa aboard of the coquette then sailing under another name. He did the Captain a favor by shipping with him when men were scarce Little thinking that the Brig on which he spent Hia Youthful Days would pick him up at sea a Man and almost dead.

The warrant designated As the hour a about 5 30 a.

Welker was a fearful Coward who had wept and moaned and torn his hair when sentence was passed and when he was placed in the condemned cell but he believed the merciful falsehood that forty Days must elapse before the carrying out of sentence which jail attendants always Tell to confiding prisoners and thinking he had still some time left to him and also having Faith that his petition for mercy would he heard he had gotten Over his terror a the freely and slept soundly. So soundly was he sleeping this morning that neither the opening of his cell door nor the Light of the lanterns disturbed him. Jacob Shook him by the shoulder and the clerk said loudly a Wake up Welker your petition has been rejected you must prepare to a horrible sound half the cry of a wild beast half a death rattle issued from the miserable Many a Throat and he fell Back on i is bed convulsively biting the Coverlet. A have you any thing to say do you want some Brandy a asked Jacob but Welker did not hear him and Lay racked by convulsive shudders. He was lifted out of bed and made a vain Effort to draw on his trousers but he could not stand and tumbled again Ujkan his Couch.

Abbe crores spoke to him earnestly asked a do i Hurt you a As he bound Bis hands but Welker made no answer Beard nothing was As one dead. Indeed the attendants were urged to make Libaste or he would die of fright in their hands. Two of them had to carry him out with his arms round their necks his head hanging in the right shoulder and his legs trailing on the stones behind them. The priest walked backward before him to shut out the sight of the machine of death but the merciful precaution was needless. Welker knew nothing.

From the Boston traveller a few Days ago a Black and tan dog belonging to a lady South end resident died and its mistress was inconsolable. The next Day the team of one of our most noted undertakers drove up to the door and subsequently an employee quickly carried a casket into the House and soon thereafter the neighbors found a Black and ton dog exhibited neatly Laid out in a Fine Rosewood casket.

Femme a i Lawt new Orleans Delta we have been favored by a Friend with an authentic description of the last moments of Admiral be incs. We shall not delay the readers interest and sympathy in this memorable scene by any remarks of our own but proceed direct to the sketch so kindly furnished us. When Admiral semites was told by his physicians that his disease would prove fatal and that a few hours or at most Days would end his earthly career he calmly thanked them and requested that a reverend father of the society of Jesus his confessor a bosom Friend be sent for to come at once. In the mean time he arranged his worldly affairs quietly and satisfactorily. When the father came the Admiral received with marked Devotion and happiness the last sacrament. He then addressed a few words of Consolation and advice to the members of his family. But few others were there the resignation Christian piety and humility of a chieftain and hero in the last moments of an eventful life. Grief heart rending grief was depicted on the faces of that beloved group around his bed and As the old Veteran gazed upon them and As consciousness gradually faded from his mind a sob escaped his murmuring lips and a tear drop gathered in his parental Eye. Soon his vision became entirely obscured. The agonies of death had taken Possession of him he was delirious. In the awful solemnity of the moment oblivious of All around him he looked up and ordered every window closed that the rain might not be blown in and deluge every thing. Then after a few moments of silence still unconscious he turned to some one near him and said a you will see the judge shout it the Case has not been decided prop Erly. I ask for nothing but Justice should i not have it Promise me to attend to this matter since i can not do it then his countenance changed from a look of Appeal to one of Stern command and fixed determination. Another sudden revolution had taken place in his mind. He imagined that he stood upon the deck of his Gallant ship on the High seas preparing for Battle. His language clearly indicated the great danger and importance of the occasion. His commands were Quick comprehensive and positive. He conversed with his officers near him on the appearance of the enemy evidently preparing for a decisive conflict yet confidently awaiting the Shock of Battle and elated with the conviction of Victory. This characteristic scene speedily passed away and a Short period of return to consciousness followed during which the Brave Admiral thoroughly conscious that this indeed was his last Battle calmly bade Farewell to each member of his family. Death did not close his eyes or Stop Iris breath however Ere he pronounced his Confidence in god and his Hope and belief in salvation. Any one who will make the Experiment in a Breech loader. The american riflemen wipe out the Breech loader after each shot till the bore becomes As Bright As Silver. In the second place three of the Briti Sli team lie prone upon their breasts in firing. That attitude has Lieen abandoned by the americans who have proven that Hying upon the Back or Side gives a much firmer position. In the third place the British riflemen of English Irish and scotch have never trained together As much As the americans Are Notas Well acquainted with Eracli others peculiarities and Are not in the habit of exchanging suggestions information and opinions every moment or As freely and cordially As the americans do. The latter had better coaches the Veteran riflemen Bodine Hepburn and Conlin who sat close by All Day giving occasional advice with a reassuring calmness and Good judgment that must have been useful. And lastly american riflemen believe that they have made and can make better rifles than any body in great Britain and think something is due to that. American rifles have won four splendid victories in four years. Women in Diat their miserable live from the ura4l� in the cd Raven an Appeal for women Doe tora. A writer in Cassells Magazine London draws a dark picture of the social condition of women in India a there can be no More interesting object of benevolent Enterprise than the improvement of the social condition of the women of India. The estimation in which the native Indian woman is held is Well known by englishmen How she is compelled to undergo every kind of manual work at the command of her husband while the lord and master enjoys his life to the utmost worked for waited on and looked up to by his wife and slave. The wretched existence of these women has been described pretty clearly in a single sentence a she is unwelcome at her birth untaught in her childhood enslaved when married accursed As a widow and often a lamented at her lady Anna Gore Langton has been recently visiting India and has taken much pains to acquaint herself with the manners and customs of the natives especially in the South of India. Indian children she informs us Are married at eight years of age. Native fathers consider it a disgrace to have single girls in the family and Endeavor to get them married in childhood but when married they do not always go at once to their husbands Homes. Although but Little Money is Laid out in clothes or education the marriages Are very expensive As there is a great Deal of feasting indeed Manv families have been impoverished for years by the expense of marriages.
