The effects of this, raid upon the Mexicans
has bedii Very bati'upontho Mining Companies,
which are the chief resources of the country.
One hundred men have left the Cerro Colorado
mines,; the Patagonia is deserted by its labor
ers, and at the Santa Rita concern it- has re
quired the most earnest efforts to keep the men
contented. Farmers will suffer greatly for lyant
of bands, now in the season of com planting.
It is a disastrous .event to the entif e cbuhtry.
Since!tho Jabbve was pUt-in type,- Anderson
has been captured." He wtis found' on the Santa
Rita mountain, and secured' without 'resistance.

The Military. The following communica.

act in relation to the recent disturbances. On
the evehing of the loth, Mr. Lathrop addressed
a'notetp Lieut. Col. Reeves, asking him to send
a few men to aid! the citizens in arresting 'some
of 'the Sonoita1 Valley nihrderers yet at large,
and to keep the' peace. His reply shows he had
already anticipated 'tlie wants of the people,:
Fort Buchanan,, May 16, ' 1859.
Sir: I have sent a party Of fifteen men, un

It is said tliat the' new French cannon is far
EvipEKCK Wakted. The commanding offi
cer .at. Fort Buchanan desires that all persons,
whether Americans or Mexicans, and who are
personally cognizant of any facts in relation to
the late massacre on the Sonoita, should report
thorn to the F6rt as soon as possible, either per
sonally or by written statement, sworn to, in
orderthat there may bo no lack of testimony to
convict itho persons now under, arrest

In regard to my having participated in the
late affray oil the Sonoita, in which several
Mexicans were killed, I emphatically deny hav
ing taken .in"y part whatever, and would not
have been present had 1 not been solicited to
preoododlm party for tho purpose of saving the
fife of a Mexican boy, (which I am happy to say
I siinnnndml in doln:r. find for tins act of" hu
manity I am called the Captain of the -party. I
can get tlie certificate of every member of the
party concerned, that I neither left my wagon,
tired a gun or pistol, or in any manner what
ever aided or abetted the proceeding; on the
contrary I requested, and even begged, the
partv to desist imV.l the voice of thfc people
should decide what punishment was due to tjic.
Mexican offenders in our country. . ';
With regard to the whipping, and as somo
say scalping, of seven Mexican peon?, I pro
nounce it an iniamous lie, promulgated I have
no doubt by some member ot tho "white Greaser
association." The inert were whipped and their
hair cut off, but nothing more ; and I here stato
that I am responsible for the act, and whoever
does not approve of it, can apply and obtain
satisfaction frpm tho undersigned. . t
