Arizona Grape Culture
"Wo have been permitted to publish
the following extract from a letter ad
dressed to Gov. Safford, by Daniel
Eonelle, of St. Thomas, Pah-Ute Co. :
I noticed some time ago in a speech
you delivered that you had confidence
in Arizona as a fruit growing country.
I wish to inform you that I not only
share this faith, but have demonstrat
ed that wo have as good a vineyard
country as the South of Europe. I
have bearing the choicest grape vines
of Portugal, Spain, Hungary, France
and the Canary Islands, and the fruit
is unsurpassed. It will not take long
ere avo can export as tine raisins and
Avines as can be found in the world.
"We are glad to hear this faArorablo
report from practical expeiience in
raising fruit in our most northern
county; Grapes have already bsen
planted on Salt Biver, with fine pro
miss. In this connection avo cannot
too strongly urge upon our citizens the
importance of putting out at once
vines and fruit trees.
The Eastern Mail. Letters pri
vate and otherwise continue to speak
in complaining tones of the feeble char
acter of the mail transportation between
Tucson and Santa Fe. It is hoped,
iioav that tri-woekly service is pro
posed, that the line Avill be thorough
ly rejuvenated, and all causes of dis
satisfaction removed. It is a hard
route on the score of Indians alcne, and
should be othoiAvise run on time and
made generally useful to the country.
As noAv conducted, instead of a semi
Aveekly mail, there has hardly been
a through Aveekly on time for a long
time. This Avon't pay anybody, and
it is hoped that a change for the better
Avill soon take place ; as it is, the Avest
ern route (between here and San Die
go) Avhich is up to time every Avay, is
damaged by the eastern, and there
can bo no mutual benefits accrue as
the latter is at present conducted.

German seat of war is up to the 23.
Troops Avere pouring in for the de
fense of Havre, upon which an at
tack Avas daily expected. A Bordeaux
dispatch of the 22d says there Avas a
severe engagement near Tours yester
day ; 6000 French fought 1 0, 000 Prus
sians Avith 24 guns. The French fi
nally retreated. The Prussians ad
vanced and commenced to bombard
Tours, AA-hen the Mayor surrendered,
as there Avere no troops to defend it.
A London dispatch of the 23d an
nounces that a sortie from Paris took
place yesterday. Gen. Venney took a

Local Rumors of War.
It has been unofficially telegraphed
from Washington, and privately Avnt
ten from San Francisco, and gossiped
about the Territory, that the hostile
Indians of Arizona are to be severely
dealt Avith by Government. The ques
tion is asked every day, as to Avhat
truth there is in the matter. "We
Avould ansAver that there is abundant
time ahead for ratification meetings.
No doubt there are half a thousand
recruits en route to Arizona, to take
the place of the deserted and discharg
ed. Some of these green hands Avill
bo assigned to cavalry organizations,
that have no horses, and Government
has made no regular or special pro
vision for the purchase of animals.
It will take tAVO or three months for
the recruits to get to their respective
posts, and how much longer to get
into position to fight Indians, depends
on circumstances. It is best not to
j calculate upon the complete destruc
j tion of the enemy AA"ithin the next
tAvolve-month. It is a satisfaction to
half believe that Government perhaps
comprehends the situation, and Ave
never doubted its good intention in
any caso. We have seen so much of
this century-old system of draggling
Avar and haggling peace Avith the
noble red man, that nothing can star
tle U3 into a fit of special joy or admi
ration, but are ever studiously Avatch
ful anl grateful on the subject in
"That Bill." At San Diego we
heard of certain bills pending in Con
gress, some of Avhich are entitled "As
soon as the bill passes ; " "When the
bill passes;" occasionally, "If the bill

The following notice of Mr. MoAvry
is taken from The Arizona Citizen',
published by Mr. Wasson, formerly
connected AA'itli the Oakland Press, and
a man ot tiutn and soberness :

Postal Innovations, &c. There
is going to be more thorough service
afforded and rendered by go-ernment
and its agents, in the postal depart
ment hereafter. Both the President
and Postmaster-General haA'e been
pointed in their recomendations to
Congress on this head, and the press
and people have been awake to the
subject. It is reasonable to expect
that the franking privilege will soon
go by the board, and every innovation
for the better, whether suggested at
home or abroad, Avdll he adopted to the
end that this branch of government
shall best ser'e the Deople and at the
same time sustain itself. We have
seen samples of what the Postmaster
General describes in the following par
agraph, and believe its adoption by
Congress Avill be a popular move :
My attention has been directed to the
neAv system of "correspondence" or
"post cards," lately adopted by North
Germany and by Great Britain, for
facUitatrng letter correspondence, and
already extensively used in those coun
tries. The front face of the card is
ruled for the insertion of the address,
and bears the post-office stamp. On.
the reverse side there is room for a
short letter or message which may be
printed or Arritten in pencil or ink.
The advantages claimed by their
use consist in. increased celerity and
easo of business and social intercom
munication, and by having always at
hand the essentials for a letter. 1 res
pectful recommend that authority
bo given by Lvw for their introduction
into our postal service, at the rate of
one cent each, including the cost of
the card, as a first step toAvard a gene

election to Congress, by a majority of
more than nine hundred, is an in
dorsement of his fidelity and efficiency
as a representative of AA'hich he has
reason to feel proud, as the opposition
against which he contended tln-ough
the recent political campaign Avith such
signal success, Avas strong, bitter and
unscrupulous, and ovrey expedient
usually resorted to by politicians of
tho least honorable class to defeat an
adversary, was employed aginst him.
As a representative of the Territory
of Arizona, m the Congress of the
United States, Mr. McCormick has
always been industrious, faithful and
energetic, and the people of that Ter
ritory have, in our judgment, done
themselves good service, in again se
lecting him as their Delegate. We
heartily congratulate him upon the
nattering commendation of his course
in Congress implied in his triumphant
re-election, and AA-ish him a safe jour
