IJrieil Apple Pies.
A genius who siJlfered severely in his
boarding house experience, gives vent to
this eitusibn :
I loath'! abhor ! detest ! despise !
Abominate dried apple pies ;
I like good bread, I like irootl meat,
Or anything that's fit to eat ;
But ot nil poor grub beneath the skies.
The poorest is dried apple pies.
Give me toothache or oore eyes,
In preference to such kind of pics.
The farmers take their gnarliest fruit,
'Tis wormy, bitter, and hard to boot ;
They leave the hulls to make us cough,
And don't take half the peeling ofi',
Then on a dirty cord they're strung,
And. from a chamber window hung;
AudYncn they serve a roost for Hies ; .
Until they're ready to make pies;
Tread on my corns, or tell me lies,
Rut don't pass me dried apple pies.
Tames D. Cnsenbary, who was
known in Central Arizona, as the Su
perintendent of the Yulture mine at
Wickenburg, more than a year since
left that position and the country.
Many have wondered why he left, so
suddenly, Tt. is now apparent that
his ignorance was more than the com
pany controlling the mine amid toler
ate. We- had no idea it was so pro
found until we saw his letters ad
dressed to one and another during the
recent camp ugn. His address to the
voters, full of falsehoods and bombast
as it was, evidently came from the
pen of another, but the letters are his
uwa choice composition, and we have
not for a long time seen &uoh remark
able epistles. . nero is one addressed
to a prominent merchant. We print
it precisely as it was written :

Our readers will hesitate to believe

Air. Cusenbary to be would presume
to ask anything of the people unless
possibly a common school education,
and yet this man not only had the as
surance to announce himself a candi
date for Congress in opposition to Gov.
ilcCormick but the effrontery to say
in his circular that the Territory had
not been properly represented in
"Washington, and that he was confi
dent that if elected he could do better
service than MeCormick had done !
Next to Mowry, this man has more
assurance than any one who figured
in the recent campaign, and we are
not surprised that no one voted for
him. A bull in a china shop vould
not bo more out of place than Cusen
bary in Congress, and the charge of
the Miner that Gov. McCormicl: had
anything to do with making him a
candidate was one of the most silly
and absurd "of all the Miner false
hoods, and yet Marion lias not had the
manliness to retract it.
Extensive deposits of gold, silver,

Captain Grossman, . local agent,
kindly obliges us with some interest
ing facts about the Indians upon this
Reservation. ' The Pimas on the Re

Cocopahs but ten. Altogether, they
have 2,210 horses, 475. "work oxen and
745 cows and stock cattle They in

We remember very well hearing the
chief Antoine say last summer, tLat
he wanted nothing from the govern
ment but schools for the, children ;
that he and his people had money
enough to buy rakes, hoes, shovels,
plows, clothes, ifcc., &c.,'und slapped
his hands on his well-filled pocket
with much independent satisfaction.
He declared that such articles of need
as could be obtained in the: stores, he
would not thank government to supply
them with, and Mr. Biehard, at Pima
'Villages, said that they were spending
very little for beads and such -worthless
gewgaws, and that they were
gradually becoming more practical in
their acts and dealings.
Now that they only demand schools,
and even Iwg and coax for them, we
think it not creditable io the authori
ties at Washington to allow for this
purpose but 000 annually, which is
too little to take the first effective si en
towards establishing schools among
Governor . Safibrd has been calling
the special attention of the Commis
sioner of Indian Affair.? to this matter,
and also some of the prominent relig
ious organizations, and we are pleased
to know that Bishop Whitaker, of the
Episcopal Church, whoso charge ex
tend:; over Arizona, is awakened on
the subject, and hopes to inaugurate
the needed work, and will probably
make a personal visit here in a few
months on' that and other interests re
lating to his bishopric.
New Paper at Prescott.
The news reaches us from Prescott
that the substantial men' in and about
that town have decided to establish a
new journal there. Their patience
with the malicious course of the Miner
has been exhausted. Its editor has
chosen to baselesyly and causolessly
slander the best friends and represen
tatives of the Territory, and join hands
with her worst enemies. Although
not constantly, he has for years made
this his rule of action. He would sac
rifice any and every interest and prin
ciple for partisan friends, whereas the
larger share of his patronage conies
from those who prefer to subordinate
partisanship to the general welfare,
and to carry out their wishes and get
for their outlay what their judgment
says is best for all, they have deter
mined to establish a complete printing
establishment in Prescott in the early
part of next year. The office will be
entirely new, have a first class Gordon
job press, and all the appointments
complete for the wants of the country.
It will advocate the interests of the
people at large, and especially all lo
Tilvt traducing wretch, Sylvester
Mowry, writes from Prescott to this
city that U. S. Deputy Marshal A. G.
Dunn was killed ; that he was a Me
Cormick man, and therefore deserved
death. Nothing more is needed to
brand this man Sylvester Mowry a
human fraud and libel upon humanity.
Saic Bowles has returned from Eu
Prescott and Vicmitj. ,
J We condense the following from the
; Miner of Nov. 12 :
detailed account of a fight between the
Mohave and Piute Indians near Fort
Mohave aljout October 15. He says :
i "The Mohaves lost eleven killed
I and ten wounded some of the latter
will yet die from their wounds. The
Piutes lost five killed and several
wounded. The Mohaves soon gath
ered in one camp, for defence, and
bad their war dances nightly. The
j battle is to be fought over again.
I learn that the Piutes are gather
ing ,at Los Yogas Ranch, and Avill
J soon call on the Mohaves again. The
, next time, they say they, will be three
J or four hundred strong, and carry one
. hundred guns, and intend to drive the
i Mohaves ofi the bottom. They say
; that the Mohaves must all go to the
; reservation. The Moliaves have col
lected in one village and fortified
; themselves, and say that they will
fight to the bitter end. They claim to
I have about seventy-five guns, and can
muster seven hundred braves. The
old Indiana and squaws are busy ma
' king arrows and war implements, and
j all seem to bo,eager for a fight.
The Piutes are expected within a
few days. The Mohaves expected
. that the Wallapais would help them,
i but 1 now learn that the Apaches are
making war against the Wallapais.
Some hunters went into the Black
Hills for game, saw many Indians,

A freighi train of nine wagons, be
longing to Judge Hayden, of Tucson,
arrived hero early the present week
with :Jd,00u.poimds of wheat and 15,
000 pounds of barley in bulk. This
grain has been purchased by George
V. Bowers for 7A- cents per pound, in
currency. We learn tliat Judge Hay
den has said that he has not made
anything on this venture, and that
money can not be made by bringing
grain from Tucson, and selling it at
the price paid by Mr. Bowers.
Aoont forty Pima Indians arrived
at Fort Whipple some time Saturday
last, and encamped near the post.
Every one was mounted upon a xony,
and all their ponies were in good con
dition, with the exception of being a
little foot-sore. The Indians were
ritout, wiry follows. They called upon

the 8th instant by J. A. Simpson.
Cause assigned woman. The Miner,
true to its editorial instincts to exhibit
venom and ill-breeding, gave quite ah
account of the affair and several times
refers to MeCormick and alludes to
the election, neither of which had any
thing to do do with the killing, but it
suited the Miner man to insinuate
that they had. El). Citizen.
An effort is put forth to build a
church, and the Miner expresses
doubts of its success.
Z. Jackson, a miner and farmer of
Lower Lynx Creek, started for Cali

The bill incorporating this company
passed the Senate last winter and will
no doubt become a law at the next
session of Congress.
We find the following in our ex
changes regarding the Presidency of
the company. After Fremont's nomi
nation by Col. Forney, the Ncav York
Times says :
General Fremont responded Avith
much feeling, and said, that taken
wholly by surprise, ho could not suf
ficiently thank his friend, Colonel
Forney, for the manner he had allu
ded to him ; but while thanking Ids
friends for the compliment they had
paid to him in asking him to preside
over the permanent organization of
this company, he felt it not only a du
ty but a pleasure to ask them io con
fer the position of permanent presi
dent of the Southern Trans-Continental
Railway Company upon his friend,
Marshall O. Roberts; he possess'-d
the confidence of the Avhole country,
especially of the financial world, and,
judging by his, wonderful success in
the past, ho felt that under his auspi
ces this great enterprise is destined to
a wonderful success . in the future.
General Fremont then put the ques
tion upon the nomination of Marshall
O. Roberts as president of the new
company, and ho Avas elected amidst
Mr. Roberts took the chair ami
pledged himself to stand by the en
terprise to the last. One of the dreams
of his life had been to bring the North
and South together in friendship and
in peace, and he now believed that the
Trans-continental railroad was one of
the surest means to that great end.
The directors, after the unanimous
election of Mr. Roberts, chose," with
equal mianirnity, Henry G. Stebbins.
as vice president; W. R. Tra-ers. as
treasurer ; Jolm D. Defrecs as secre
tary, and R. M. Corwine, as attorney
The directors then adjourned until ;
o'clock in the evening, when they
adopted their by-laAATs.
The NeAV York Tribune of the 1st
Gen. John C. Fremont yesterday
declined to seiwe as permanent Presi
dent of the Southern Trans-continental
Raihvay Company, and Marshal!
O. Roberts was unanimously chosen
to fill the position. General Fremont
continues to be a director of the Com
pany, and Avill undoubtedly prove an
active an energetic one. As a capital
ist and financier Mr. Roberts Avill add
great strength to the Directory, and
his election goes far towards establish
ing the success of this important en
terprise. ' ,
