A Lancasteil.m in Leadvillc. Conespendence et the Ictkixieexcei:. Lcadville, Colerado, May 27, 1SS0. While the citizens of your lovely little city are sweltering 'neath the sultry rays of the neon-day sun, we peer mortals away in the heart of this carbonate camp aie puzzling our brains for the best means ei keeping out the celu. Situated at an elevation of mere than ten thousand feet above the level of the sea, Leadville resi dences are net the most desirable. The climate is ever changeable ; te-day being quite warm and pleasant,te-morrow greets two ineht s of snow. We were welcomed te the town by a first-class Eastern miew storm, and during our short stay here hive witnessed .snow falls every day. As spring is new epenin we leek for better weather ere lern;. Leadvillc i hiutated at the feet of Mos Mos Mes quieo Range, in a beautiful mountain val ley, at an altitude of 10,200 feet. On the west the snow-capped peaks of the Reckies proper, at the feet of which flew the headwaters of the Arkansas river, lend their beauty te the general attractive ness of the place. Surrounded by these lefty mountain ranges, the view from this town, even taking into consideration its altitude, is net very extended, though in this peculiar atmespheie the range of vi sion is almost limitless. The population of Leadvillc, composed as it is of people from all sections of the universe, can scarcely be approximated, though it is variously estimated at from 03,000 te 43,000. An important fea tuie upon which te base one's judgment in lcfercuce thereto, is the fact that last year this city polled mere votes than Denver, a city of 155,000 inhabitants. Upen the whole I would say that Leadvillc is about the size of your town. Although the people are mainly miners and prospectors, every profession, trade and business is well and largely rep resented. Just new the town is in a furor of excitement owing te the miners in nine producing and paying mines, aggiegating 3,000 men, being out en a strike. The movement originated in the celebrated 'Chryselyte" mine, one of the lichest mines iu the whole carbonate district, and is headed by one Michael Mooney, the "Gicat Agitator," as he is teimed in this camp, lie is supposed te be a '' Mol Mel lic Maguirc " from Pennsylvania and a mau of little brains. This action of the miners has been brewing for some time and only culminated yesterday. As yet there has been no riotous demonstration, and se far as we can learn none is antici pated. A precession of about 2,500 miners headed by a band of music and carrying Hags and banners, marched up Harrison avenue this morning. Although many weie armed they were quiet and orderly, behaving like men who believe in the right aud have the courage te maintain it. Un less speedy action is taken by the mine owners, serious consequences may be looked for. Business of every class, from the peanut vender en the street corner te the influen tial merchant behind his counter, has been booming ever since its re covery after the failure of the "Little Pittsburgh" mine, the mine out of which Ex-Gov. T.vber, by the investment of $50 in a "grub stake" made a million and a half. The daily output of ero and pro duct of bullion has been steadily en the increase, and it has confidently been be lieved that by the time the extension of the D. & It. G. railway reaches here, about the first of July, the product would at least be doubled ; but should the strike be piolengcd, cither by stubborn miner or obstinate capitalist, nothing but the entire prostration and stagnation of business could be the result. As this is thoroughly a mining town all business is dependent upon the working and development of the mines. The richest and best paying mines arc situate en Fryer and Carbonate hills ; among them being the "Chryselyte," " Little Pittsburg, " "Aimic," "Morning Star," "Evening Star" and "Little Chief. " Through the kindness of Mr. Bcntlcy, superintendent of the "Morning Star," it was my great pleasure te descend the shaft of this celebrated mine and thoreugly explore its ground workings. Situated en Carbonate hill this is the richest mine in sand carbonates, with here aud there a vein of native silver, in the whole of this wonderful mineral deposit. The descent, 150 feet in the per pendicular and main shaft, is made in a bucket, let down by steam power. Frem the bottom of this shaft, ei the top of the incline, as it is new generally called, wc descend a distance of about 230 feet farther en feet, exploring te our heart's content the many drifts and leads branch ing elf in every direction from the main in cline. The immense deposit of the precious metal glistening in the light of our miners' candles was beautiful te beheld. The ex perience being se entirely new te me it was of the greatest interest. Away down four hundred feet under the earth, in the midst of untold wealth of silver, clad in the rough and tallow-spotted garb of the miners, bearing in our hand the mineis' candle provided us, groping our way through inky darkness te some especially rich deposit, all combined te make our journey one of thrilling excite ment and indescribable pleasure. The beds of mineral in this mine are truly won derful, millions of dollars worth of the metal being in sight. With this they arc new doing nothing, continual prospecting occupying all their hands and time. But enough of mines and mining. Te the newly arrived, or "underfoot," as a recent arrival is patronizingly refer red te by the sturdy miner and corduroy covered prospector waiting fer a "grub stake," Lcadville presents an appearance in striking contrast te many eastern towns. Wc reached here en Sunday, that day of peaceful rest and quiet in "Ged's coun try " as the East is called, and instead of finding every store, saloon and shop closed an unusual bustle and commotion was no ticed. Hotels, taverns and drinking houses were doing a rushing trade. Gambling saloons ad infinitum, with doers wide open, through which the click of gambling checks and the hearse cry of the " banker " sounded with doleful cadence en the Sabbath air, were found en every street and corner. Even the dry goods and grocery stores weie open; but this, in a measure, will seen be stepped, as I notice a movement has been put en feet by the better class of merchants te close at one o'clock en Sundays. Hew sweetly that sounds te a citizen of "Ged's country," a " tenderfeet." Sunday is the gala day of the camp, nerse racing, feet racing and rifle shoot sheet ing are largely indulged in, and iu the evening the doers of the numerous thea tres and dance houses are thrown openLte the amusement-loving, pleasure-seeking people. There is, however, another and better" side te life iu Leadville ; and though greatly in the minority, bears noticeable impeitance. I mean the church-going people. Services are held at three differ ent places en Sunday, aud the buildings arc literally crowded. Literary societies are quite numerous among their members, many of strong intellect and talent. A free reading room has lately been eixnied by the efforts of Rev. T. J. Mackcy the talented and popular rector of St. Geerge's Episcopal church. This gentle man is also an indefatigable laborer in the cause el temperance. lielteving that total abstinence can euly be reached step by step, he takes his first by endeavoring te organize an anti-trcating society. " Suc cess te his efforts," is the voice of many, though in this town wc dare scarcely hope for much geed result. Sickness is very prevalent iu this coun try, owing no doubt te the elevation, the atmosphere and the lack of proper knowl edge of hew te clothe one's self. A genci al coughing en every street is noticeable. Pneumonia is largely in the ascendent ; a peculiar disease called " no money" al most keeps pace with it. . The cost of living in Leadvillc is sim ply enormous. Bearding and lodging costs anywhere from $10 te $50 p r week. Reems without beard command from $3 te 613 per week. Rents are very high all ever town. One apple and peanut vender whom I questioned in reference te the amount of rent he had te pay for his little corner, quietly answered : " Only $150 per month." And yet this is a great country. In my next 1 shall endeavor te give you an account of my trip through the Platte River Canen by moonlight, and my perilous and exciting ride el 45 miles by stage fi ein Bucua Vista te Leadvillc. V. The Ulp'reekcf. New Yeik Times. What is known among taileis as the "hip-pocket" is exclusively a characteris tic of the American species of man. Mr. Withers is net a Western man aud is wholly unacquainted with whisky ; but his recent experience of the incompati bility of hip-pockets and glass bottles was very painful and embarrassing. He had returned te his Orange county home from a biief visit te New Yerk and had brought with him as a present for Miss Wilsen te whom he was betrothed a bottle of that .remarkable cement which is sold by side walk merchants, and which is by them represented as being much stronger than wrought iron. It had occurred te him that this cement would be a very nice thing te have in his future house, since with it all sorts of broken china and glass could be mended, aud every oue knows that chil dren will break a great deal of china. On the evening of his arrival home he put the bottle of cement in his hip-pocket and called en Miss Wilsen, intending te offer it te her as seen as he entered the house. Mr. Withers was ardently attached te the young lady, and when he saw her be fore him he net unnaturally forget all about such merely earthly matters as cement. The old people welcomed him politely, and after a few moments of con versation, withdrew with a discretion which it is te be wished that all old people would emulate. Being of a frugal mind, and knowing that the merciful young man should be merciful te his intended father-in-law in point of kerosene bills, Mr. Withers promptly turned down the lamp and proceeded te make himself at home. 1 he bottle was a stout one, and would pcihaps have withstood any ordinary pres sure, but as Miss Wilsen weighed fully 140 pounds, and as the back of the small rocking chair was of hard weed, it is net strange that the bottle yielded. Mr. Withers was se much interested in the weather and ether objects, such as usually absorb the attention ei young men in his position, that lie did net notice the break ing of the glass, aud it was net until an hour later that a false alarm of " father iu the front hall," induced Miss Wilsen te flee te the sofa, aud suggested te Mr. Withers the advisability of turning up the lamp. The cement had done its work, and Mr. Withers did net get up te the light, but requested the young lady te discharge this duty for him. She did se, and then noticed his painful and preoccupied ex pression. Te her anxious inquiries he ad mitted that he felt a little faint and would like a glass of water. Miss Wilsen hur riedly went for the water, reproaching her self for being se heavy, and accusing her self of selfishness aud want of considera tion. In her absence the young man made superhuman efforts te wrench himself loose, but the cement refused te yield. When Miss Wilsen returned with the glass of water, he looked se much worse that she was really frightened, and he was compelled te tell her the real state of the case. She was a practical person, and she promptly proposed te get iu a tiu-kcttlc of het water and dissolve the cement, but desisted when he explained te her that his system would net bear the application of water at the boiling point. She then timidly suggested that if she were te call pa, perhaps pa might lend you a pair ; but Mr. Withers said no ; he could net bear the mortification of being found in such a situation by any father. It was finally agreed that he should wait te a later hour, and should then take the chair home with him. This was accordingly done, and had net the unfortunate young man been arrested by a local constable, who only discharged him when a severe test proved that his possession of the chair was purely involuntary, his misfortune might never have become generally known. When disasters such as this are liable te happen te the wearers of hip-pockets it be comes doubtful whether they are net altogether tee hazardous for general use. In fact, geed authorities maintain that the hip-pocket is positively detrimental, and that an earnest and united effort should be made le secure its extirpation. m The Mayer's Messajc. New Era, Uep. In commending the police as a sober, industiieus and reliable body of men, who execute their duties faithfully and prompt ly, the mayor throws a brick or two into the garden of our local judiciary, which might be a cause of disbarment if Mr. MacGenigle was a member of the bar, which, fortunately for himself, he is net. It is evident that the "policy" of Mayer MacGenigle and Judge Patterson, in deal ing with the rowdy element, does net run in the same rut, and every intelligent citi zen is competent te judge for himself which rat is likely te carry the machinery of jus tice te the best results for society. This message, notwithstanding its length, should be carefully read and its suggestions impartially considered by citi zens and taxpayers independent of all par tisan bias. We are all interested in secur ing the best pessible municiple govern ment, and it is of far less importance from which party suggestions of improvement may come than that there should be im im pievcment in whose benefits all may share. m m Prayers for Candidates. Many of the New Yerk clergymen last Sunday indulged in prayers in behalf of the Chicago and Cincinnati conventions, that they would be ruled te a wise pur pose and nominate geed men. Beecher among the rest jeinediu the supplications, and prefaced his petitions with some racy remarks : . I don't think at this time we have any reason for apprehension. I hope for the best things. I don't think that if Benja min F. Butler was president of the United States the Lord would be scared a bit. Even newspapers can't put a man down if he has get anything iu him, and nobody can destroy this nation but the nation itself. If this nation is true te itself, te its experience, and te the moral inspira tions which belong te the people, we are net going te be put down by this adminis tration or that administration. There is danger, but the danger has been in our sys tem ever since wc have been a nation ; and when wc arc a nation of angels there won't be any scratching I held that the politicians are worthy of their bread and of their salaries, and we never shall have a perfect government until we have men trained te the business of politics, attending strictly te their business. Se long as the community is dead te all the elements that go te constitute atiue gov ernment, what felly it is te ask Ged te make up all their faults by new putting out his hand and "fixing " Chicago, " fix ing" Cincinnati! Yet, there is no harm in praying but if Ged answers your prayer you will find it will be answered net at the muzzle. It will kick back. Ged may give you a bad government as the best way of giving you a geed one. The red, perhaps. is what you need, and net the sugar-plum ,t KWF.Lt.lt 8. JOUIS WEBEIt, J WATCHMAKER.
