Drmasoo, Jan. 14, 1867. The city of Dnrsngo, in latitude 24 degrees 2 minutes (north, te situated in a broad mountain valley, about ten miles wide by twenty miles long, running east and west. This valley, locked In by lofty mountain chains, is watered by the southern branch of the Rio del Mesqul tal, which flows through the northern part of the State of Jalisco, and empties into the Pacific Ocean about one hundred and fifty miles south of Masatlan. The im mense level valley in which the city Is situated receives all Its fertilizing elements from the river which courses through it The land, well cultivated and rich, annually yields two crops of the cereals sod gives s prodi gal growth to whatever Is planted. The crop Is principally corn, which bore Is the food for the poorer classes, and during the printer months la also used for horses and mules. Formerly the city of Dumngo contained 22,000 inhabitants; but wars, the stagnation of business and the lack at protection in any commercial enterprise have reduced the population to ?bent 16,006. In 1860 the State was estimated to contain 102,018 inhabitants; bat in I860 Indian depredations and wars had reduced it to 166,610?e loss in six years of 6,000. The city, foupded in 1563 by Alonzo Pact) ceo, was the principal cootre of government for the viceroyalty of ?*Nueva Viscava," as Durango was then called. It was at that time more used as au outpost kgsinsl the Indian tribes, who waged a constant warfare aga list the Span ish enw/uistadom. than as a productive settlement. From the mineral districts to the west and norttiwom ot the cily trade to centre her-, and gradually it be came tbe must important business centre of the State. The northern and northeastern districts or the Sut'o afterwards gave their con ribuiioDs ot mineral riches, and Durango at the end of the eighteenth centuri began to assume a very important position among the Mexican Cities. Durango has always been considered one of the great centre* of catholic power here. Virtonlly It wan, and is to day in its weakness, the t reat northern stronghold of Mexican political ecclesiastical power. It wiw among the first of Mexican cities, under the direct.on of tho clergy, to throw its energies into the hands of the impe rial (action, which has ulwavs counted largely upon tho support which the city and Slate might aitord in the last grand struggle of the Mexicati Catholic Church to rule the country. The result ha* been that tho people have freely contributed millions to the itnper al cau.-u, and are now almost impoverished. The bishopric of Durmigo was founded October 11, 1620, by Paul v., and has sinca that time had twcutytlireo o.shops. The (Irst took pos session on th> 22d October, 1621; the lam governed from 1631 to Novemlier, 1863, at which time he died. Since then Durango has been without a bishop. Besides tbe immense mineral wealth hat enriched tho city, it was the centre of supplies lor the numerous cat tle haciendas that made northern Durango famous for its herds of horses, mules and horned catile Scarcely a vestige of theee herds now remains; ihe land lies idle and unproductive; the estates are wrecked; tho build ings upon them, descried or in ruins, nflord but n sad shelter for a few miserable beings who live in constaut dread of the savages, lho Immense herds that darkened the plains have disappeared as If by magic befure the terrible blast of aunia! Indian invasion. The districts of Mapini, Inde, El Oro, Cinco Scilores, San Juan del Rio and Cuencaino count their losses from the Co manche and Apache invasions by millions of dollars, while tho valuable mining interests of these same dis tricts (about one-bait the Stale) are completely paralyzed. The HI Oro district is rich in i old washings and lame lumps have been found there. From California miners who have visited it I learn that its riches are equal to ll.s most lamoiid diggings of that Hate, but tliev cannot Is worked on account of a few hundred Indiana. A half . league north of the city is the lamous "Merrado" iron mountain, the elevation of which is seven thousand Ave hundred feet above the sea and about six hundred feet above the plaza of the city. I rude around it and exam ined it thoroughly. It Is about three miles n cireumfer ence and ia composed in gieat part of iron ox'ido, ax I am Informed by those who are working tbe orea It is a bold, rugged looking mass, black and frowning. - The whole mountain ia about llfty per cent of metal, and its analysis varies from forty to sixty-eight per ccut. I have some specimens that will certainly give from aevsnty flve to eighty per cent. It ia rather In tbe form of a vast deposit than a vein, although the axis of doposlt Is clearly lo be traced and runa nearly east and west Oh the northern side tho ' metal appears to be of a purer quality than apou the southern Slope. All around the base of the deposit are bugs boulders of iron, many of them from twsuty to thirty tone in weight, rhese, loosened by time, have rolled down from tbe steep sides and crSSt of the moun tain and lie here ready for the smelling furnace wheu time and patience sbovo Mexico into the channels of tbe world's commerce. Upon the south aide or the moun. tain ia a superior quality of building stone, a primitive limestone highly crystalline, while upl.fted upon the northern slope of the iron deposit a limestone ridge stretches off to tho northeast. On the northern slope of the Iron ridge Is the entranoe to a mine which has been opened and worked for some time. Gold and silver ere . also found in this mountain, but tha yield is very poor. It Is also stated that precious stones of considerable veins Have been taken from some caves near the lumml Upon the bank of tbe Turns) river, six miles distant from the mountain, Is an iron manufactory, the ma chinery of which Is worked by water power, a fall of abost twelve feet serving lor the purpose. T? this point the ores of the Meroadu mountain are carried, ami from them about one hundred tons of iron are annually manu factured. In 18M they manufactured one hundred and seventy-live tons, bnt the works are new somewhat run down. The proprietor of the works and of a very line country seat adjacent, was Don Juan Floras, n gentle, man whose feudal wealth tare years since was one third part of the state of Durango, consisting of seventeen Im mense haciendas and forty nouses la the cliy. All this is now confiscated for treason of the owner, who has made himself prominent as an imperialist The Iron works consist of a large English smelling furnace, a small nsasbtnesbop and a foundry of equal dime melons, a num ber of blacksmith's forg' i and a primitive trip hammer, as also a small roling mill to wbieh two or three paddling furnaces are attached. I saw them roll a few tons of irou; but It was not sufficiently worked, tbe rolls ware vary much strained for want of a batter gradual too of sizes In the rolling, and tbe Iron when finished tall of faulta and vary rougu. It Is, however, of exceeding good quality lor all purposes requiring very hard, doss grained metal, it tetng almost like steel. This Is perbapo due in pert to the use of charcoal and wood In tbe manufacture, there oetng no stone coal available. Tbe wood Is brought over the mountains oo mule back, a Journey of two and a ball da vs. The charcoal costs fifteen eents sliver for twenty five pounds Tbe iron sells in this market for from twelve lo fifteen cants par pound, wholesale, and Is pre ferred to that of foreign importation. A splendid busi ness might be done here with lbs iron mountain If there ware any protection to Industry; but as It ia now, It would be s losing enterprise for capitalists. On tbs southwest side of the etty is a bold limestone hill, kasswn as tbs Osrro de los Remedies. This is crowned by s small thick walled church around which tbe tmpcrMists have constructed a fortification at con mdssabls cost; but with a vary laferior display of en gineering talent. The general plan of the works has the shape of a right angled triangle, its hypothenuse ffcciug the north went. Its southwestern angle has some pre tensions to a bastion, while the remainder of the work Is as irregular aa the crest of the mountain. The base and perpendicular are about six hundred feat each. The ditch around tbs work Is aooat sit feet deep, sad cut out of tha solid rook. Its principal value, as I use it, would be to serve es s place of shelter for an assaulting party previous to carrying the works Tbs Interior revetments are of stone, the exterior of adobe bricks The parapets vary from six to ten feet In thekoeen Tbe church, In the centra of tbs work, is loop holed asd the roof Is now sur rounded by a parapet which would serve as s protec tion for infantry. The fort would mount nineteen guns, and completely commands ths city, the plaza of which Is not mora than a mils distant In ths interior of ths work are several ipssml siwUi of adobe and stone and two traverse# of stone, which appear to be of little value. Tbe slops ?f ths parapet Is such that In no part ol ths works could tbs guns be so depressed as to sweep the mountain side; not even ths Infantrv could command tbs bill slope from tho bamqneiU. Ths ditches are not protected by n flank Ore except partially on tbe east aide, while on the south side the lace of the certain Is almost parallel with ths foes of thr bastion, and ths whole south ditch mads apparently to protect an assaulting party which might easily solar It from tbs souibeast, turning at ths same time a small outwork to ths south of the main work. North wool of tbe bos tlon la a circular redoubt lower down the hillside The whole fortification Is a weak sfihir, and like all ths other Imperial for-ideations I have sesa appeared lo hava been built simply to bold the population beneath Ita guns la constant terror. Lead Is very abundant In the Slate, and copper In the Maptm! district In Mantml, Cuoncame. Guaancevi, Parrilla, and In tbe Cordillera, separating Durango from ?union, Ahem are Immense argentiferous deposit# West of the capital In tbe subufos there are tin mines in ths Osrro de las Remedloa There are also valuable tin de posits thirty leagues northwest of this city. Ths lack of enterprise, capital and protection causes nil of these riches to Ita dormant. In the central part of the State are raised oorn, wheat and other cereals. In tbs valleys, where tbs climate la temperate, exuberant crops of an excellent quality of cotton era raised, ss also sugar cans and other plants of ? tropical nature. ' In lflM Durango produced 800,000 "fanegas" of corn. Ths total lasress in 186* undsr imperial rule, for tbs support of the State government was 1278 669, but It fell short of ths expenses by $60,000 Durango Is not noted for Ita public or private build ings. The cathedral Is the prinotpal edifice and Is mainly notable for lis else, not for Ita architectural beauty, which Is Tuscan styls. It was commenced In 1096 and consecrated In 1M4. Two charitable Institu tions of limited means exist here. The Durango mint was established In 181L Upto 1861 it had coined 929,662,667 In stiver and gold. The sassy office Is vary old. A penitentiary, partly flntahed and containing already two hundred solitary calls, was last year warmly recommended for on appropriation to complete It. Printing was first dene hore In 182S by the Franclman Pray Bnenavetiiura I .eras, of tbe Convent of San Fran ctaoo, who insterarlured without foreign aid a prase, type and everything required for printing pnrpenes. Later Governor flviui brought to Mexico the press now used bv ine government There ore three other tanail pressee In the city, but their nee is principally to print tbe government decrees, these being about all thai ths $ official Stat* jo ,rna! contain# A buti pen for bull fighting and ? cook pit art. ?C *? r m tbe tiring! existing.

This U the only one ran by steam, the motive power of the others being water. In the fertile valley of Poana* another cotton mill ie being built. There is e ?mall dour mill, and a saw mill near the capital. It ta estimated that the cotton crop of the district* of Sen Juan del Bio and Nairn for 1866 were 30,000 quln Ules (3,000,000 pounds). A considerable part of this statistical data I have ob. tamed from an official report made to the Imperial Minis ter of the Interior In 1866. The scorpion crop in tbe city of Purango for 1866 wis over eeventy thousand. These venemoua Insect* make Durango a perfect terror in the summer months. At present they are snugly stowed away In the cracks, waiting for the thermometer to rise. Their bite to chll dren is in most cases fatal, and la frequently ao to grown people. The drinking of large quantities ot liquor pre vents death, but the person goes through a regular lit of hydrophobia, with much foaming at the mouth. 8o greet was thispest, that in the time of the Viceroys they commenced offering a certain price per dozen, and this practioe has always been continued. Tbe old price was six cents each, but It was found tnat tbe annnal increase was enormous, and it was soon discovered that manv of the poor people bed taken to raising them lor a living, having boxes prepared for the purpose, Tbe prico was consequently lowered, and to-day it Is only half a cent each; but it is supposed that many people still find it profitable to carry on a sccrpion manufactory. It is a curious fact that the scorpions irom the other parts of the Slate have not that deadly venom which they have here. There ap pears to be a slight difference in their appearance also; for the experts who make the purchase* in this part of the city cannot be imposed upon by an imported article. A section of tbe city ceiled Chihuahua is singularly enough free from ibera; and here many wealthy per son* have buiit their residences for the summer mouths. financial and commercial. Tots DAY, Feb. 12?6 P. M. There vra.s considerable activity in the gold market to day, and the price rose from 130* at the opening to 37',' at a quarter to four, notwithstanding a slight ad van' e in the price of (lve-twenties on the London Stock Exchange. The closing quotation, howover, wus 137*. The borrowing demand was so noarly equal to tho supply that the great majority of loans were mado without in terest, the exceptions being at 2 per cent for carrying. The advance was mainly due to a more gloomy view of the political situation than prevailed yesterday.

The undercurrent of monetary attain at the West Indi cates s revival of confidence, and the recent stringency is giving p'aoe gradually to comparative esse. But the demand tor dtseounts both tn the form of renewals and fresh paper Is active, and names are closely srrutin lied br the banks, while the rates of interest remain un changed.

It is still generally believed in Wall street that the Loan Certificate btll wtll become a law, as it meets with the unanimous support of the national banks. It is to bo hoped, however, that the power these Institutions exert will t?e Insufficient to cause Congress to pass the measure. They have already subsidies enough sod to ask for several millions per annum additional, which this bill virtually does, is like adding Insult to injury. There is the leas excuse for It bacons.' them institutions are, wt:h n few exceptions, paying large dividends to their stock holders Should the olil pass, as It not impossibly may, H wilt, result in s steady inflation or bunk loans for a considerable length of Ume to coma. The compound Internal notes, for which them certificates are intended to act as a subatltnte with the banks, are not by law available as n reserve against circulation, although them Is no legal enactment against national banks holding them as a reserve against deposits, as the following ex tract frost the act authorizing their Issue will show: ? Said Treasury notes may be disposed of by the Secre tary of the Treasury on the best terms thai can be ob tained for lawful money; and such of them as shall be made payable, pr.nclpal and Interest, at maturity sball be a legal tender to tne same extent as United Stales notes for their face value, excluding interest, and may be paid to any creditor of the United States at their par value, excluding Internet, or to any creditor willing to receive them at par, Including interest ? ? ? Nor shall any Treasury nots bearing interest Issued nndsr this set be s legal tender In payment or redemp tion of any notes issued by any bank, banking associa tion or banker, calculated or Intended to circulate as money. Mr. Hooper, In his recent speech In the House of Representatives, contended that they were not "lawful money" In the sense of the act, and that therefore they ought not to bo held so ? reserve agslnst deposits; bat the speaker strained a point beyond the law In making this assertion, and was evidently lad away by bis sent for the entire exception of tho compound interest noteo from the legal Under retervc of the banks rather than guided by bis calm Judgment In the Interpretation of tho sot. The compound notes should be available as n reserve against deposits up to the Urns of their maturity, when they should be redeemed with plain legal tender notes. Shies writing the foregoing ws find It reported from Washington that the Senate Finauce Committee have agreed to the Mil. after amending It by reducing the amount to ooventy-flve millions und the rata of In terest to three per cent. The principle of the bill, how ever, remains unchanged, and the objections we have urged against It still remain. The foreign exchange market was steady, and rales were nominally the sans as yesterday Bankers' b.lls on England at atrty ttaya were quoted at 108* ? 108*; ?t three days, 109 a 100*; commercial bills, 107* a 108*; franca at sixty days, 6.90 a 5.17*; at three days, 6.16 a6.1T*.

Tbe Utter, la order to meet a detlcit of a little moire than five millions of dollars, a uthorized the issue of ? ight million! of debenture* or provincial notee, for which tbe Bank of Montreal was to art as tb# circulating agent, and from tbe proceeds of tb# issue of either to provide the Finance Minister with tbe tneana of meeting certain paymenU due by tbe prov ince In England. Tbe debentures not having been sub scribed for to a sufficient extent tbey were not issued, and recourse was had to tbe legal tender notee, of which it is suied that not much more than three millions of dollars have been issued to the Bank of Montreal. Thia seems to argue considerable difficulty in working them into circulation, hi consequence of a distrust of tba public credit, tba expeadiiures of the province, owing to the unskilful management of its finances, being In exoeas of IU Income. Previous to the lasno of these provincial notes the local gov ernment waa indebted to the Bank of Montreal In ibe sum of $2,260,000, to Baring Bros. & Cq. in an additional sum of $2,600,000, and to the Barings and Glyn, Halifax k Co., of London, in $060,000. It bad further a direct liability In the form of canal debentures or $380,000. Its only ready means of paying off this in debtedness waa by the issue of these note?, and it there fore follows that, as but little more than half of the former has been paid by the Utter, the province has creditors representing tba remaining portion. Tho debt la a mere trifle, of course, in comparison with the amounts we have of Ute years been accustomed to deal with In this oauntry; bat, small as it is, the Canadians are forced thereby Into the position of needy debtors] That a colony which, from iU geographical position and otber natural advantages, should bo in a prosperous state, is forced to occupy a financial position suggestive of the straits of Micawber, hardly reflecU credit upon those who have had the control of its finances.
