1 The Yaquis hold the title to their
lands from the King- of Spain ; and
do not - recognize'- the republic of
Mexico. No taxes or imposts : are
levied on them, or if levied hey
have not been collected. They are
a "hardy, "agricultural race, living on
small patches of fertile ' soil on -the
Yaqui' Biver -They steal stock
when . an ? opportunity offers, but
have rarely sin the .last few; years
committed any .murders ; Cajeme,
their Chief, is a man : ot fair educa
fion for Mexico, and . a stern ruler.
He has absolute control over; them,:
The two nations combined number
over 15,000, of which at least 5,000
are adult males. . . Their principal
arms are bows, arrows, spears, and
a three cornered bludgeon made of'
Ironwood. . . isome of their ' arrows
are poisonous. They also carry, a
powdered stone in small sacks, us
ed by themtd throw in the ; eyes of
uieir adversaries, wnicn is gaia to
swell them up and produce blind
ness. ' Caje.me has a royal guard,
the major portion- of ' whom ' is
mounted as cavalry and are picked
men of the, nation. , - There are said
to be some- four or five hundred of
them. The extent of the country
occupied by them reaches along the
river some ninety mixes, oy an aver
aeg width" of twenty " miles. Here
are located their towns are pueblos,
each having its" governor, judges,
etc., who report to the chief. They
produce corn,-' beans, melons,
pumpkins, etc, and raise quite a
large' nujfnber of chickens, goats
pigs, etc;., - all of - which hnd- - a
market in ; Guaymas. In . fact the
supply ctt-wood, cane, mats, oysters
and mary other articles of sale, in
demand; here at all times of the
year, come from the Yaqui River.
The . trade,; of the ;;Yaqui Indians
with the port of Guaymas will
average oyer $3,000 monthly,
Most of this produce is.: exchanged
for goods and forms quite an item
to. the small stores of the town.-
There was a powerful fascination
in one of the yrorks of Victor ,Hugo
for one body of . men at least that
was never exercised before by liters
ary creation. Lea -Miserablesj -republished
in" a Southern J' city,' was
defused widely . through the Army
of Virginia at a period of .very . low
depression iatheitJbrtunes of the
Coniederacy.'-Nearly' - all the men
of that Army could read, there was
little else to read, and the work was
greedily devoured and the well :
thumbed volumes were passed from
hand to hand, almost the sole litera
ture of the camp. ;The rude soldiery,
ignorant of the- French Language,
wunu la tne verv tiue eometnin?
hat came directly" home to - their
conaiuon, ana the ' ludicrous-' pro
nunciatiori Iiee'Hiserables, seemed
to picture with mournful fidelity
the Jwretched fortune of ?:tho Con
federate soldier and the Confederate
cause. Thername oi Victor Hugo
became a fariiiliar sound; and he
alone of,- all .' the French ' authors
biLS-ampxesaed Kiteelf j. ..on.those
to -in whom French - -; literature,
even' u in V translation, f- is an
unkriowik element. The death ' of
that great writer . will therefore' be
more widely an Incident of interest
than that of any'; other literary; mm
of the age,- In him Les Miserables
found a solace in the miseries ' of
the Camp Vrid the:-: gloom ' of the
cause, and Victor Hugo3' will long
be remembered by men,who, tinder
present conditions: t would - never
have known his r existence: ; '.But

Periqub Tobacco rA . subscriber

Perique tobacco is grown . and how
it istniaged. : ' ;;' : ' :
Perique tobacco is exclusively a
product of Louisiana.. ; It is ; grown
no-where else-, in the world. , It is
not the speciaPvariety ! that "makes
the - , distinctive ..characteristics' of
this tobacco, byt L the method of
handling and curing. - It is grown
mainly in St, James parish, Louisia
na, by the Acadians, the descendants
of the French colony which was. ex
pelled Irom Acadia,now . Nova, Sco
tia, in 1755. The cruelty practiced
by the English soldiery in driving
the whole popula tion on shipboard,
in many cases separating children
from parents, wives from husbands
and breaking the tender ties ot lov
ers," forms the foundation' of Long
fellow's "Evangeline," one of the
most pathetic poems in oar " lan
guage. Theexiles were put off the
ships all " along the - Atlantic coast,
and while manv perished . through
destitution and want, others found
their way to the Mississippi River
