-Brvt. Lieut. Col. Reeves' company of infan
. tnr, commanded by Lieut. Cook, has arrived,
and gone into quarters, at Fort Buchanan, in
place of Company D, lot dragoons, which' has
departed for Fort Fillmore Lieut. Lord com
The recruits for Company 0, 1st dragoons,.
have arrived at the fort. First Lieut Randall,
of G Company, has also arrived. Col. llcevcs
..mil atomic assume command of the post.
, , Thcro is-no doubt that a large number of
troops have been. ordered, nd are now on their
way to-this Territory. - We -have direct rjii'd re
liable information from Washington, to lic ef
fect that an extensive campaign will, at an
early day, be made against the Apache nation
probably as soon as government makes its
contemplated changes in the Military Depart
ment of New Mexico. We but express the sen-
- timent of the citizens of this region, when we
hope that Lieut. Lord and hia company will
aoon be returned to Fort Buchanan. A garri-
' son of two companies of dragoons and one com
pany of infantry, is little enough to allow this
section of country ; and it is a most cxtraordi
jiiary circumstance, that with the prosent con
dition ot Indian attains, a single mounted man
should be ordered from Fort Buchanan. We
"""imagine that this business may yet receive at
tention from headquarters.
1oru "Nawd"' ruoM Arizona. A Nov
York daily journal has the following highly in
teresting item of "news" from Arizona:
"Enormous amounts of silver have been dis
covered at the mines of the Veiled Meadows,
of Arizona. It lies in blocks and paucls, in
many instances masses weigh tons, yielding
from seventy to ninety per cent of zinc with
Here is another specimen of the ridiculous
falsehood! which have been swallowed by East
ern papers, in reference to Arizona. In this
.'case, the-minos are not only manufactured but
also the. place where they locate them, It is a
trifle s'mtrtilar that it did not' occur tQ.he paper
which first published the above itein, that
"blocks" of sillier "yielding from seventy to
ninety per cent of zinc with copper," would be
'. something of a curiosity I Such abominable
litrf are only calculated to dupe fooia !
New Minino Companies. The Sopori Silver
Mining Company, of Providence Khodo Island,
capital one million dollars, will commence op
erations shortly, with a strong force. The Ar
izona Mining Company, of New York, will also
commence work very soon. The silver mines
of th'iB Torritbry are bogining to attract great
attention in the Slates, and various new mining
companies arc forming to explore and labor
throughout this country.
Wells on the Desert. The Qrerland Mail
Company have succeeded in oinking several
fine 'wqlls.Qn the Colorado desert, in each case
"finding waters;'; a-depth of about fifty feet. -'Efforts
are still being prosecuted with the prospect
of supplying that desert country with water. -

the absence of any regular mail rout main

Frost. We fear that the recent severe frosts
have put a quietus on the fruit prospects for this
season. For three days past the weather has
been very cold and windy. The fruit blossoms
have all been cut off once this season, and a

Edward E. Duxn.ut, for many years a resi-
dent of this territory, has established a Commis
sion House in New York and Guaymas. He
offers his services as agont, to purchase and
forward supplies, and machinery to mining
companies. His long roaidenco here, and thor
- ougli acquaintance with the wants of tho people,
. is ample guarantee of his competency for tho
business. As soon as the port of Guaymas is
opened to us, all the supplies for this territory
will be received from there.
No Mail Route. The failure of Congress
to pasi the Post Office appropriation bill, will
prevent the establishment of any now mail
routes, until another session of Congress, and
- very seriouly embarrass the routeB now in ope
