EXTIUOnmSAKY FEHAIiE FOOT -lUCE. One Hundred and Mne nilea In Thir teen Honra, ' (Chihuahua (Mexico) Correspondance of the New ! York Herald.] * Among the Tarahumsres foot-racing (sa { iavoritc diversion, and even the women com- , pete In the lists. At times a great rivalry 1 springs up between the adjoining towns of i come districts os to the relative merits of the contestants. Within a month a riva’rv of this kind between the two villages of Bacoala J .and Scsogulche gave rise to the most famous I foot-race on record. Four of the fastest wo men from each town were selected, and ac companlcd to an intermediate point between the towns, where there wasnn oblong moan- ' tain three Mexican leagues around it bv measurement of the road; around this U was stipulated that the race was to take olacc the < prise to he conceded to those who made : the quickest time in running round the mountain fourteen llmcs-a the very least, of one hundred English miles. At fixed points within the circumference of the mountain guards were stationed, who were to sec that the race was conducted with fairness. The whole population of the sur rounding country had assembled, with whal they could collect of value, that they might have the opportunity of bolting some thing upon the result wiiich was to bring ehamc or honor to the rival villages. They were also sufficiently civilized to have a large quantity of the Intoxicating drink—the As the eight athelctie creatures took their places at the starting point the excitement ran high; they were, like the old Hainan athletes, stripped for the contest, the only garment worn being a short peticoat, which reached within about six Indie* bf the knee. Our Infotmant who stopped his travels for a day to witness this novel race, was struck with the magnificent devdopement of muscle displayed by a swarthy looking belle, whose petticoat was a little shorter than too rest, and he forthwith bet his pile on Sesogiilchu. There were other finely developed creatures in the list, but none whose bright eyes, clean limbs, hard looking llcah and apparent gutta pcrcha elasticity of motion drew ao vividly upon bis Imagination, and so powerfully up on his purse. The whole bevy were off at the word go, amid the wildest excitement, and the betting commenced. The time was six o'clock and thirty-five minutes in the morning. The first, second, third, fourth and even the fittU turn was completed without any great advantage upon cither side; but during the next live turns it was evident that, with the exception of the fair belle above mentioned, Scsoguichu was losing ground. She, however, kepi breast and breast with two wiry creatures from Bnconlu. At the twelfth turn of the mountain all but the three here mentioned dropped from the track. The multitudcwaa now prcltcy well Bonked with Tc/.nnln, and the belting ran to the wildest extremes; overy olio who had anything of value staked 11 on the race—hoes, plows and oilier agri cultural Implements, horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, gouts, cats, dogs, and whatever eke there was of value changed hands. The men bet their clothes, while the women pitched In and bet their retlronts. All was a wild uproar, and the Derby sweepstakes Were nowhere. The tlilitecntli turn was made; but It was evident that the Bcsogulcho belle was getting out of wind, and after nil had not so much bottom ns the wiry contestants from B:u*o. nla. But she was not far behind, and al though Bacotilu took the prize it wjs nut n matter for much boasting. Thu two women from thu latter town were received with the loudest shouts of Joy liV their townspeople. They hud IliiWmil the nice at eight o'clock In the evening, making the whole distance, loy miles, In thirteen hours and twenty-five minutes by the watch of our Informant. One of the two Bacoiihi women who won the race hud given birth to a child ten days before, and prepared herself for the contest by bandaging her breasts. The only stops made during the time by >lm contestants lor thu prizes were cither to lake » little water oreat frugally of p/ooff—a dm pic gruel made of parched corn, ground and sweetened with sugar. By the Hum the race was concluded nearly every Indian on the ground was drunk.

A Valuable Historical Collection, [Fiom tbe New York Evening Post, February 3 ] The Librarian of Congress, Mr. A. R. Spof ford, has just made a special report to the . olut Committee on the Library, recommend eg the purchase ol the large historical col lection belonging to Mr. Peter Force, of Washington, it will he remembered that the Historical Society of Ibis city. In 1565. made Mr. Force a conditional offer 0f3103,000 which ho accepted. * The enterprise tailed lost winter for lack of funds. Tbe same amount has since been of fered by a bookseller, wbo desired to secure the library for the purpose of speculation. Mr. Force replied that he would sell tho library only upon condition “that It be kept together in some permanent and fire-proof public repository.” He now offers it to tho Government at the same price, and Mr. Spot ford warmly recommends the necessary ap propriation. The library contains 23,520 volumes, and about 37,500 pamphlets. By far the greater part of these bear upon the history of the country. Mr. Force made the collection with special reference to a projected work, the Doeumeut&ry History of the United Stales. Ill* manuscript materials for that work would make three hundred and sixty tollo volumes of manuscript, and arc thor oughly analyzed and classified by Slates. Many of the original documents, of which these arc copies, have been destroyed by fire. Mr. Force has also brought logctiicr the largest collection of books relating to Amcrl. ea in the world. It embraces the narratives of the early explorers, written it* all the Eu ropean languages, the earliest printed books of tills country—such us Elliot's Indian Bi ble, Hie woiks of the Mathers, Colton, Nor ton and their contemporaries—and a com plete collection of the publications of Frank lin and the Bradfords, and the taws aud journnlMif the Colonial Assemblies, hi some two hundred volumes. In tho department of.early printed Ameri can newspapers, there nro unusually com plete lik-s ni the leading Journals ol Massa chusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and other Stales, dating from 17£> to TbOO, aml covering with much fullncu tho period of the Slump Act controversy, the Ituvolu tlounry war, and the establishment of tho present Constitution, Altogether, the Force library has no less (hail two hundred and forty-live bound vol umes ol American newspapers printed prior to IhOO, bealdeu about seven hundred vol umes, hound*and unbound, of journals printed from IHOO to the prununt lime. In pamphlets relating to this country tho library la very full and rich. In thu library of Conetess there uto now not quite d,D)O pamphlets. Mr. Force Ims collected nearly 40,14X1; H,UIO weio printed before 1800. As Mr. Force was so fortunate us to noeuro, many years since, five gieat mid unbroken collections, formed by lending politicians of dlUcTcut parties, who arranged nud bound up fur convenient reference till the pamphlet literature of t heir time, tbc collection is nut only unmatched, but. at Ibis day, uumuleh able, for completeness. The library also possesses forly-cigbt folio volumes of autographs, many of thorn letters written during the revolution; orderly books ol tbc same period; autograph journals of Washington, drcenc, Arthur Lee and others: and an unpublished manuscript of Los Casas.

Confidence la recovering, and there is less hesitancy on the part of capital ists to make advances. The demand for Money continues qnlte brisk, both in the way of fresh paper and renewals, hut the market shows a dim inution of that slriigcncy which marked the month of January. An uncomfortable closeness still prevails, and until Mr. Grlnnell’s bill shall be adopted by the Senate, there are no chances of the market working to that condition known as “extremely easy." Paper is closely examined, atm none save what Is termed' “gilt-edged" finds favor at the discount houses. In the open mar ket good doable names pass at IH®2 per cent per month.

II la UiciiEht, wllletT-doaHy prevent the gross frauds which haw bwnpcrpc'raicd.” Ihe simplest way to put a stop to the frauds In (he whiskey trade, and secure to the Government Ihv tevenue wtucti U ousbi to Obtain, 1* to reduce the tax to Q'ty rents per gallon. Belting goods below the cost of production Is not, in common law or •ntnon sense, evidence that the party selling Mich good* Is not legally entitled to the ownmhlp ol Hie same. During the pa«t year woollen goods of some descriptions were sold tor loss than cost ol production, but none will venture lonsseit Hint the parlln who sold such goods were i.uilho legal ownrta of the same. The Gov ernment may |»d«o such whiskey a* Is ofl'-red for a less prtco than f3.w) par gallon, oi> snvplclon of having been Illicitly niaon luctured, tun thn same cannot he confiscated until Iba Government shall have proved the whiskey to bvcouiiabsud. In common taw tbe harden ol proof shall have no more snccesa under the provltloua of the proposed law than It now hat, the addition al revenue will not show a very largo credit to profit account, Tbe opinion obtains to a large ex tent In whiskey circles, that too many of oar legis lators are Interested in a pecuniary way In the illlcll dltllllaUoo of whlskoy. Whether this it to or not, we have no meant of knowing, bat think It quite likely. Judging from the whiskey “ rings” which ruled the lobby tome two or three yean since.
