The interest in that school is constantly

Hunting. An abundance ot game as
deer, antelope, grizzly and other bear, wild
turkeys, ducks, etc., is a distinguishing
feature of Arizona's mountains and valleys,
and those who wish any more exciting
sport, wili find a few Apaches or rather,
to be accommodating, they will hunt and
find you occasional!-. But it is not a bad
country where a few men can go out and
bring in half-a-dozen deer in four or five
days, and a load of wild-fowl. Last week,
a partv of well-known Tncsoners did that,
and we expect several of the same party in
to-day with more venison, some ol tne
bucks dress over two hundred pounds. We
mean the four-legged bucks the others
are never dressed to speak of.

New Houses Built and Building
Suggestions about Town Wants A
Few niNTS to the New Officers. We
sent man out to hunt up aud make a list
of the buildings constructed and under
way during the six months ending to-day.
He collected the names of owners, size of
structures, etc., but failed to connect on
the location as to streets, so we conclude
to omit the names for the present, and
suggest that the proper authorities have
these streets designated in a plain and
substantial manner soon as Dossible. The
new buildings out-and-out in question,
number eightj'-odd, and those in course of
completion about thirty. It is safe to say
that but for the late rains, one hundred new
houses would have been noted. The di
mensions thereof vary from 15x30 to very
nearly 75x200 feet, and one-story with but
few exceptions. There are a few that don't
come under the head oi ' 'dobie.' Some
improvements are worthy of special men
tion as those of Scott & Lee's steam grist
mill ; Ochoa & Co.'s store, 70x150 ft. ; Fish
& Co.'s 6tore, 30x6(5; JuanElias's, 00x105;
Goldtree's, 20x60; Oscar Buckalcw erected
three fine structures ; the Public School
building, 18x60, is well under way, and a
number of quite large structures of one
sort or another, also. Besides the above-
mentioned, in and outside improvements of
old buildings are numerous and quite a
feature. Altogether, we think the showing
very satisfactory for a dull, dry season
. .In view of this practical exhibit of the
rapid and continuous growth of Tucson,
it bchttoves the new Board of Supervisors
to look to many little necessities aud im
provements that should be afforded on
their part. Elsewhere we print an article
on the subject of straightening present
streets, providing for the future, etc. The
cost and trouble f naming streets, and
fastening the same to the corners, would
be trifling, aud the convenience great. It
may be that the many disjointed and other
streets all have names, but not one person
in fitly knows or remembers tnem, ana no
one but a scientific and practical geologist
could 'place' the 6ame-like mud-walls and
corners, without much practice: an old
prospector might after the manner of go
ing through canons, aroyas, &c. There is
a healthy looking chain-gang on the town
and countj', that (if no one else will do it)
should be made do more street-grading, as
most of the north-and-south streets need
leveling and the rubbish cleaned away in
short, if the latter were attended to gen-
erally, the health of the town would be
improved. A town of 4,00!) population re-
quires euusiiieiauie aiiemion, ana lub in-
habitants ought to be made pay for it, if
they won t taKC care of themselves witn-
A Scare. While last week's paper
was printing, there was rushing to
and fro as if the Apaches had sud
denly laid siege to the town in force.
Some Mexican teamsters near town,
and some youngsters on Gen. Allen's
ranch across the liver, combined to
produce the sensation. Lieut. Cushing
run his horses around half a day for
nothing, as it is very doubtful Avheth
er Indians had anything to do with
the affair. There were no cattle taken
from, the ranch, and no mules from
the campers, so far as could be ascer
tained. But these scenes are to expect
ed in this country, and the wonder is
that they do not occur oftener.

Getting Ready. The rooms (five
in number) to be used by the Legisla
ture, are on the corner of Cn.mp and
Convent streets, and are put in shape to
the extent of a few hundred dollars,
Sec'y Bashford has seen to the busi
ness, und that everything necessary
has or will be done by the time the
session begins 11th January.
Affirmed. Judge Titus, of the
District Court, on the 24th, affirmed
the decision of Justice Meyers, in the
case of the Territory vs G. H. Oury
for taxes. Mr. Oury has made some
money out of pocket in this case.
Off Again. Lieuts. Cushing and
Bourkc started on an extensive scout

to follow up the trail of the Indians
who attacked Tully, Ochoa & Go.'s
The Turf. As before annouced,

Incrcascd Mail Facilities.
"Within a few days, Mr. John G.
Capron has been advised "by a "Wash.
ington telegram, that the mail service
ha3 been increased from semi-weekly
between Los Angele3 and San Diego
to daily, and from the latter place via
Tucson to Mesilla, to tri-weekly, the
increase to commence January 1st,
1871. The short time intervening
that day renders it impossible to pre
pare the road -with stock, additional
stages and stations to make the extra
trip by that time, but every effort is
being put forth by Mr. Capron to do
so very soon. On the 26th he went to
Los Angeles to purchase stock and
stages ; intended to return on the 29th
and come right over the route and as
sist m the details. Lumber is being
sent out, and carpenters are building
new stations, A thorough going semi-
weekly stage line will be put on all
the way from San Diego to Tucson
and a buck-board will make the third
trip. Except between Maricopa and
Arizona, the stage line is now semi
weekly, and making splendid time.
We made the trip from Ban Diego here
in 4 days and 10 hours, and M. R.
Piatt made it in a little less than that
the other way, and would reach San
Francisco from Tucson in 7 days and
20 hours, and remain in San Diego 20
hours. Of course, the mails go with
the same celerity.
The above i3 good news to the peo
ple in general, and now it remains to
be seen whether the service from here
to Mesilla will be put up to a proper
state of efficiency voluntarily, by J.
F. Bennett & Co., or whether by pe
tition and othewise, the citizens will
force it up.
