(OF THE PRAIRIE BELLE.)
"Wall, no ! I can't tell whar he lives,
Becase he don't live, you see;
Leastways, he's got out of the habit
Of livin' like you and me.
Whar have you been for the last thrte year
That you havn't heard folks tell
Hbw Jimmv Bludso passed in his checks,
The night of the Prairie Belle ?
He wcrn'tno saint them engineers
Is all pretty much alike
One wife in Natchez-under-the-Hill
And another one here, in Pike.
A keerlcss man in his talk was Jim,-
And an awkward man in a row
Rut he never lluuked, and he never lied,
I reckoirhe never knowed how.
And this was the religion he had
To treat his engine well ;
Never be passed on the river ;
To mind the Pilot's bell ;
And if ever the Prairie Belle took fire
A thousand times he swore,
He'd hold her nozzle against the bank
Till the last soul got ashore.
All boats has their day on the Mississip,
And her day come at last
ThcMovastar was a better boat,
But the Bell she wouldnH be passed.
And so she came tearin' along that night
lhe oldest cralt on the line,
"With a nigger squat on the safety-valve.
And her iurnace crammed, rosin and pine,
The lire bust out as she clared the bar,
And burnt a hole in the night,
And quick as a flash she turned, and made
J; or that willar-bank on the right.
There was running and cursing, but Jim yCll-
Over all the internal roar, ed out,
" I'll hold her nozzle agin the bank
. Till the last galloot's ashore."
Through the hot, black breath of tne burn
Jim Bludso's voice was heard, in' boat
And they all had trust in his cussedness,
And knowed he would keep his word.
And, sure's you're born, they all got off
Afore the smokestacks fell
And Bludso's ghost went up alone
In the smoke of the Prairie Belle.
He wern't no saint but at jedgment
I'd run my chance with Jim,
'Longside of some pious gentlemen
That wouldn't shook hands with him.
He seen his duty, a dead sure thing
And went for it thar and then ;
And Christ ain't going to be too hard
On a man that died lor men.
Colorado River Mines.
A gentleman who has recently visit
ed these mines in CastleDome District,
writes us that they look very well.
Several hundred tons of ore are being
taken out of the "Castle Dome" and
"Flora Temple" and the permanency
of the veins is undoubted- A number
of other lodes prospect well. The Don
Santiago, Nonpareil, Empire and
Poormar are favorably mentioned,
the latter having a quantity of ore
mined.' The country there "is full of
veins, and all will pay big wages for
men without much capital but plenty
From all reports Avorthy of credence
about these mines, Ave cannot doubt
their value, and believe them to ba
worthy of more attention by men of
limited means as well as those of
abundance. The mines are conven
ient to cheap supplies, and little work
opens them to paying ore. Provisions
and materials of every land can be
laid down within a few miles of the
mines at cents per pound freight
from San Francisco, and ores are car
ried to that city at a merely nominal

U. S. Senator of Missouri, and J. W.

We give two columns of our first page
to a syiiopsis ot the message of Governor
SalTord, delivered to the LegislatiTe Assem
bly on X4tn Jan. It can ue safely said that
this is the ablest message ever submitted to
the Territorial Legislature. It is a compre
hensive and most interesting review of the
progress of Arizona, showing the unprece
dented dilliculties Avhich have been over
come by the handful of brave men who are
there breaking the way for civilization, and
the formidible obstacles Avhich still im
pede the development of the country
The Governor takes a statesman-like view
of the present condition and Avants of the
Territory, and his suggestions are stated in
a clear and forcible manner. We haAe no
room for comment ; the message speaks
for itself. It should be published through
out the country.
It turns out that Minister Motley
Avas recalled from the British Mission
because of his palpable disobedience
of plain instructions, and the corres
pondence betAveen himself and Secre
tary Fish shoAvs the Ex-Minister to
haAre been both unfaithful and un
truthful. President Grant did risrht
in recalling such a man; and develop
ments indicate that the resignation of
