FATE OF A FIGHTING DOG.
A man, he owned a terrier dorg
A bob-tailed, ornery cuss,
And that there purp got that there man

For the man was on his muscle,
And the dog was on his bite,
And to kick the dog-gone aniniile
Was sure to raise a light.
A woman she owned a Thomas cat,
That fit at fifteen pound,
And the other cats got up and slid
When that there cat was round.
The man and his dorg came along one day
Where the woman she did dwell,
And the purp he growled ferociously,
Then went for the cat like h 1.
He tried to chaw the neck of the cat,
But the cat, he wouldn't be chawed,
So he lit on the back of that there dorg
And bit ! and clawed! and clawed!
Oh! the hair it Hew! and thepurpheyouled.
As the claws went into his hide, back ;
And chunks of llesh were peeled from his
Then he fluinmuxed, and kicked and died.
The man he ripped, and cussed and swore,
As he gathered a big brickbat,
That he would be durued essentially
If he didn't kill that eat ! he did !
But the woman allowed she'd be blessed if
And snatched up an old shot-gun, ,
Which she fixed, and peppered his dia-

They toted him home on a window-blind,
Aiid the doctor cured him up ;
But he never was known to tight again,
Or to own another purp.

All I want to show is, that lighting dorgs
May tackle the wrong Tom cat.

LETTERS FROM PliESCOTT.
AH About the Immensely Rich
' Strike' of Gold ami SilArer Mines
in Bradshaw Mountains.
Prescotx, A. T., Feb. ad, 1ST1.
'Tis a long lane that hath no turning'
and after the dullest fall and AAinter
Ave have ever known Avithin the mem
ory of the 'oldest inhabitant' of Prcs
cott, a great sensation has stirred us
up during the week ending to-day. It
happened thus a party of four expe
rienced miners have been prospecting
south of the BradshaAV mountains for
some weeks past, and at last 'struck it'
near the head ot Humbug creek, in
the shape of a large vein of sih-er bear
ing galena. They examined the A'ein
carefully, chose their portion, made
their locations, and then took their
tools and dug a hole about three feet
deep on the lode, and from the ore tak-
en iiom the hole loaded their animals,
and came to Prcscott, bringing 400 or
J 500 pounds of the best silver ore over
j seen in this locality. All the miners
I here Avho knoAAr anything of silver ores,
were sure it was good at first sight,
and all aa'Iio understood the process
Avere allowed to take their pick of sam
ples for assay and Avorking tests, and
the results of half a dozen such trials
of the aArerage ore, Avere yields of from
:il, GOO to $1,050 of pure silver per ton.
One of the richest samples, Avorked by
i melting, gave 11,900 per ton in sil
! ver. These products AA'ith the state
! ments of the fortunate discoverers that
the A'ein oil the surface Avas from 8 to
20 feet Avide and plain to be seen for 2
miles or more in length, roused the
dormant blood of the oldest prospectors
in town. Messrs. Hammond, Morland
and their companions came to toAvn on
baturday, the 28th insfc., and the ore
tests Avere made that day and Sunday,
and from ilonday morning till Wedn
esday night a string of horses, mules,
jacks and men lined the trail leading
towards the Eradshaw. Laughable
scenes were enacted, and great the de
mand for riding and pack-animals.
Of those Avho knew the country and
had located in the neighborhood on
silver A'eins in many stood not
upon the order of their going but left
on Monday Avith some neAV-eomers in
their train; others aa'Iio haA'e pooh
poohed at every littla stir for the last
four years; stole away quietly after
Monday night had set in, and Avhen
such AArere found missing on Tuesday
morning, others caught the foAror una
followed on, till on Wednesday it
seemed that the toArn was nearly deser
ted. Tne exodus from Tucson for the
Burro mines last spring Avas some
thing in the same line I presume.
There is a good caus for this excite
ment in the.fact that this lude is situ
ated in the immediate A'icinity of the
immense silATor bearing lodes on Silver
Mountain, Avhich were discoA'ered and
located in 1SG5, and are as large as
the lodes in the Burro mountains,
though the average assays from them,
made here and in San Francisco, Avere
not rich enough to induce capitalists
to venture into an Indian country, and
the locaters being poor men, little has
been done toAvards developing the lodes
though in any other country, such
prospects on the surface as from 12 to
tf2Gy per ton, in silver, from lodes
varying from 20 to 150 feet in AA'idth,
and cropping out 10 to 20 feet above
the earth for more than a mile, Avould
haA'e caused an outlay of thousands on
thousands of dollars to open the Areins.
in the expectation almost certain to
be reAvarded of finding: richer ore at
loAver depths. But here in Arizona, '
something of extraordinary richness
must be found and plentj' of it before '
the outside barbarians will believe in
our report of the land. So when this j
A'ein, AA'hich is named the Tiger, turned j
out ore Avorth over $1,000 per ton, 'tis I
no Avonder that the old 05ers aa'Iio -lo- I
ca ted the Mammoth, Marsh, Antietani, ,
Huff, SnoAvball and other lodes in Sil- '
ver Mountain, wliiclithey have shop- j
herded for fiA-e years, thinlunir their
time is coming, concluded to rush out
and protect their claims from jumpers
during the excitement. So they went
from among us. When they come
back if their reports are good or bad,
you shall haA'e a line or two on- the
point from H.
PliESCOTT, Feb. , 10th, 1871. Last
Aveek the Tiger lode excitement Avas
the foundation of my epistle and jmr
suant thereto I must continue in this.
Several of those Avho lefttoAvn betrvveen
tAvo days, early last Aveek, have re
hired, and contrary toall expectations
all tell the same story thus: The
original Tiger is a magnificent success i
the lode or vein has been traced by
skillful prospectors for nearly eight
miles, for more than two miles eArery
foot has been taken up, on half a dozen
claims, shafts have been started, and
in every instance good ore has been
found, and in at least two locations the
OAA'ners and others believe their pros
pects are better than those on the dis
covery claims. Those Avho did not get
satisfactory locations on the Tiger,
struck put into the neighboring coun
try and discovered and located on sev
eral other silver bearing veins Avhich
promise well, although not as large,
long, or on the surface as rich as the
Tiger and named them the Tigress,
Lion, Lumb, etc.
Oui townsman, W. C. Collier, has
declared his intentions to move all his
household goods to his claim on the
Tiger, and camp there till he gets all
the. silver he Avauts. Mr. C. has for
seven years, spent all he could make
in other Avays, in prospecting for quartz,
and feels sure that he has got his for
tune before him now. It is asserted
by interested parties, that ore amount
ing to several hundred pounds in
Aveight, taken from different locations
on the Tiger, carefully sacked and
marked, Avill be sent to San Francisco
to be Avorked for both silver and gold,
in order that operations may be started
understandingly ; though persons ac
customed to the smelting process, say
there can be no question of the expe
diency of erecting small furnaces, and
commencing paying operations at once.
As a portion of the vein runs through
heavy pine timber, charcoal can be
made on the spot, and if the size and
richness of the vein continues doAA'n
into the d3pths of the earth, there Avill
be in time, a flourishing toAA'ii. Anti
cipating such results, some enterpris
ing parties have already laid off and
claimed a town-site near the mine,
hoping doubtless to realize from the
sale of corner lots after awhile, and if
the ore is carbonate of lead as stated
by parties professiug to knoAV, and the
Tiger furnishes plenty of it, a state of
things similar to that at Eureka, Ne-A-ada,
may arise at the foot of Brad
shaAV Mountain, smelting may become
a permanent business, teams that
freight our provissions in, may go out
laden with sih'or bullion, and the OAvn
ers of feet and town lots bj happy.
Kothwithstanding the sibver fever,
the gold bearing veins are not aban
doned on the Brad maw Mountain, or
elseAvhere. Reports from the Del Pas
co, Avhich has been the leading trump
in our mining circles during the past
feAv months, from the mines on Lynx
Creek, and the Eugenia on Big Bug,
(from the latter, the Big Bug Mill has
been crushing ore constantly for the
past year,) are more encouraging this
Aveel than ever before. So our quartz
mining population is jolly, AA'hile the
placer miners and farmers are praying
for snoAV and rain, either or both. H.
Hox. K. C. McCokmick, it seems from
notices going the rounds, has made another
powerful speech on the Indian ouestion.
We take the following from The Rocky
Mountain 'ews, at Denver, of Feb. S :
Mr. MeCormick, the Delegate from Ari
zona, seems to have made an admirable
speech in the House, on the Indian question
judging from the brief notices of it Ave
have seen. He made just those distinctions
Avhich eastern men find it so hard to recog
nize, and advocated the kindest treatment
of those Indians aa'Iio are inclined to peace,
and at the same time the most vigorous
measures against those Avho persist m hos
tilities. He protested against the common
habit of eastern people, in charging at eve
ry case of outbreak that the Avhites have
been the aggressors. He said he knew the
fronticrsnieh, and they are eager for peace
and friendship with the Indians'. He thought
if Congressmen Avould consult the Territo
rial Delegates on Indian alfairs, they Avould
understand them better. Mr. MeCormiek's
speech is said to have made an excellent
impression on the House, and Ave hope it
may reach and enlighten many of the peope.

Grande railroad, via Pike's Teak, Santa FS
