A correspondent advises us of the
great success 'of the' Ewing road from
Florence to Infantry Camp. He
says: Thos. II. Ewing and party,
consisting of our most active citizens,
and a train of 13 wagons loaded with
commissary stores, started from M.
L. Stiles' farm on the Gila, early on
the 13th, and arrived at Silva Station,
(Ewing s) on the 14th, a distance of
28 miles, making an excellent high
way as they advanced. On the loth,
Mr. Ewing led 70 pack mules over the
trail to Infantry Camp, 12 miles, mak
ing the trip in five hours. Parties
who have returned, report the road a
first-rate new one ; also the trail is
good for pack animals. ATr. Ewing
deserves credit for his vigorous energy
in opening this road.
Ix answer to many inquiries we will
say that the Denver and Hio Grande
railway, starts from the depot in East
Denver, passes through the river front
portion of town, up the Platto river
and Plum creek and so on south into
New Mexico. It is to be of thirty
inch gauge. The line is being located;
camps and stations established ; con
tracts will soon be advertised and
work will be pushed vigorously. Its
completion to the Fontain-qui-Bouillo
near Colorado City, is promised by
June next. By the close of the year
it will probably reach the line be
tween Colorado and New Mexico.
The San Diego TJrion of Jan. 19th,
has this item of interest to our mer-
chants : Gordon, Stewart &. Co., have
shipped a large quantity of goods to
Arizona this week, comprising freight
for E. JJ". Fish & Go., and Goldberg
& Drachman, Tucson ; "VV. Bichard &
Co., Pimo villages; and a large lot of
liquors for J. S. Spann, Arizona City
Nearly all the light goods for the. Ter
ritory are now going this way.
From Arizona City.
Our correspondent writes, January
16th, that no news had been received
from the brig Laura.

is reported to be coming in order to
settle the difficulty that occurred at
Algodones some months since.

says: Col. Morrow arrived in this

GEN. STONEMAN'S REPORT,
A "Washington dispatch, to the New
York "World, gives a summary of and
extracts from this document, from
which we reproduce the following :
Colonel' Stoneman says he made a
thorough inspection of the whole De
partment of Arizona, and a careful
examination of all the points of im
portance within its limits as far as
time and circumstances would allow.
He assumed command on the third of
May, 1870, at which time there were
eighteen posts in the Department, and
since then three of these have been
discontinued. He now recommends
the concentration of troops at eight
posts, that the Quartermasters' depots,
except Yuma, be broken up and the
civil employees discharged. This, he
says, will increase the efficiency of the
command, and aid the Department
Commander veiy much in his efforts
to reduce the current expenses of the
Department. The posts thus reduced
in number, there would reinaiu Camps
Verde, Thomas, Grant, Bowie, Hual
pai, Date Creek, Mojave and Yuma,
and their mportance would, m his
opkiion, be in the order in which they
are named. The hrst three are loca
ted in the heart of hostile Indians.
The next three are located on three of
the greatest mail routes and highways
through the Territory, and the last
two are nitantry posts.and are located
on the Colorado river, and have con
trol over the liiver Indians. Colonel
Stoneman says : "The posts and de
pots recommended to be discontinued
are expensive, and can be dispensed
with advantageously to the Govern
ment, and without other detriment
than a pecuniary one to the people of
the lerritory in then- immediate vicm
ity, who, of course, will object, as
they Avill be unable, as heretofore, to
dispose or their hay, grain, ect., to the
Government, at the usual exorbitant
ECONOMY A"SD SUPPLIES
After alluding to the cost of keep
ing up several posts, the use of which
has long since ceased to be a necessity,
he says that the most rijrid economy
has been practiced, the purchase of
forage limited, and the purchase ot
June, coal and luel stopped at all
points not depots.
Col. Stoneman next alluded to the
efforts of the contractors to take ad
vantage of the situation of the troops
and demand tho most exorbitant
prices for fuel, forage and beef. The
class of quartermaster's stores furn
ished the Government for the use of
troops in this department appears to
be on a par with tho supplies furnish
ed the poor Indian. "Take, for ex-
; ample, oak lumber, sent -out for
purpose of repairing wagons, eet. In
some cases, observation authorizes me
to state that, instead of good, tough
white oak having been furnished, the
poorest kind of red-oak, fit only for
firewood, has been supplied. The
glass is blistered, warped and discolor
ed to such an extent as to be fit fax
usp only in Arizona. Stationery, with
the condemnation mark staring one in
the face, is considered good enough for
use in this far off region. Water
buckets, invoiced as 'gutta percha,'
turn out, upon inspection, to have been
made of paper. Blankets, marked
'woolen,' proved to have been manu
factured from buffalo hair gathered
on the plains, and so on to the end of
I2TDIA2fS DOMESTICATED AND HOSTILE
It will be proper tu state, that, since
the organization ot the Department,
the Hualpais, Moiaves or Yavapais,
and Coyotero Apaches, have become
quiet, and are fast becoming domesti
cated. Gachies, with his band, which
during the past eight years, has
caused great trouble, has expressed a
wish to go on a reservation, become
quiet, and be let alone. There remain
now but two branches of the great
Apache nation in Arizona, that are in
open hostilities, and measures are be
ing taken to bring them to terms.
These two are the Tontos and Finals.
No treaties or promises have been
made, except to assure them all that
as long as they behave themselves,
they will not be molested, but if they
misbehave they will be pursued and
punished. The Apache nation in this
region, as compared with what I
knew of it more than twenty years
ago, is nearly harmless, and their des
titution is great in. the extreme. They
must either starve, steal, or be fed,
and as they are unwilling to do the
j former, it becomes simply a question
as to which is the best policy feed
them, or continue" the endeavor to pre
vent them from stealing. The Chi
mahueves, and that portion of the
Mojaves not on a reservation, though
well disposed toward the whites, are
at war with each other, and a few
weeks since, had a battle, in which
quite a number were killed and wound
ed on both sides. The Yumas and Pa
Utes arc also peaceable and well dis
posed. The Pimas and Maricopas,
both semi-civilized tribes, and a frac
eion of the Mojaves, are on a reserva
tion, under the control of Indian
agents. Besides those above named,
there are a few stragglers, belonging
to no particular tribe, who prowl about
in small parties, stealing, as oportuni
ty offers and necessity dictates. In
conclusion, it gives me pleasure to be
able to express the opinion, that Indi
an, as well as other affairs in the De
partment are in as satisfactory a con
dition as can reasonably be expected.

third act of a similar kind that has been
perpetrated near this locality within the

who, upon the commission of said crimes,
flee to Sonora, in Mexico, for safety; and
whereas, The safety of the lives and prop

be brought to justice and punishment;
Now, therefore, I, A. P. K. SAFFORD,
Governor of the Territory of Arizona,
hereby offer a REWARD OF ONE THOU
