The writer some months previously chanced •
to fall in with a party who were preparing to
explore that portion of Sonora acquired by the
Gadsden treaty, and to take possession of val

as to discover such. Tim party in time found
a copper mine, which has proven to be rich and
extensive. The ore has been assayed, and
found to contain seventy .five per cent of cop.

one and a half ounces or gold per hundred

wry and some copper, also a little gold have
been discovered. The richness of the speci•

in the mind of the writer, that the country pos•

it is reputed to have. The gold mines are
represented nn the poorest of nil.
'The silver and leitd mines appear as if they
were worked some fifty or more years ago.—
The cause of their being abandoned was the
hostility of the Indians, which continues to this
day to be dreaded by the Mexican race.

The deceased wits indeed a relic of the last
century. She was born in Hay of the year
1763, in Frederick county, Virginia. While
she was finite young her littler emigrated to
Central Pennsylvania, yet in its rude state—
the home of the notice Indian. With the
events of the early settlement of Pennsylvania
prior to the establishment of its present form
of government, she was familiar and always
retained a lively recollection. Many a time
and oft" the writer of this has listened to her
detailed nod interesting accounts of the den.
Kers and uncertainties of what was their fron
tier life. Her father settled with his family - in
Huntingdon County, adhere she afterwards
married Alexander McConnell, Esq., with
whom she lived as a devoted wife until his
death in 1822. Shortly after that time she
crossed the Allegheny mountains and made
her home in the family of her youti n , at daugh
ter, where elm died. Mrs. McConnell was
trimly 'a remarkable woman, and there aro
ninny features of her long life to excite the
pride and emulation of her numerous posteri•
ty. It has been the lot of few women to live
so long and so well. Her heart was full of the
charities and sympathies of her sex. Her in
tellect was ever vigorous and active. Early in
life her mind was directed to religion, and to
act as an humble, sincere christian was her
-constant effort. An she lived and died—calm
serene, ham. To the last the kindness and
usefulness of her nature was manifest. But a
few moments before her death, her reason yet
unclouded, she was solicitous for the health
and happiness of those about her and fearful
lest she should be what she called a "trouble."
In the course of nature, her earthly career
was complete ; yet so necessary bud she be
come to the household of her later days,that
her absconee will bo an unreconciled reality.—
To the immediate circle of her friends she
seems to have an immortally, so long had she
resisted the "fell destroyer." But the grave
has at last achieved its victory. Full of years
