Sax Bernakdixo (Cal.), July 28.
Left Prescott on the morning of the
20th by the buckboard ; waited for the
stage at Wickenburg until the mom
ing of the 23d, by which I arrived
hero last eveniner. In all about four
and a half days travel. Schedule
time is eitrht days. Distance about
450 miles. The road from Prescott to
Wickenburg has been described
crooked, rocky, hilly and heavy sand
in a few instances, but naturally very
good road on the whole. Wickenburg
to Ehernberg, 130 miles, hard table
land, with a few "washes" rocky
and sandy places. Generally good
time made no fault can be found at
present. La Paz is included in this
several miles of worst road in conse
quence. West of the Colorado, and to
within 35 miles of this place, it is "a
hard road to travel," the bebt that can
be said, and the teamster or stage man
more than earns his money if he does
his duty on it. The first day west of
the river, the road is a black, burned
and rocky one ; the remainder in ques
tion, generally heavy sand. About
midway of the San Gorgonio Pass,
the eye is greeted with so abrupt a
change of scene that one must ex
perience to fully realize it. All this
region and to the coast, seems to dis
charge its surplus wind through that
pass ; of late, the rains to the east
ward, and with a general cooling off,
the suction through that bleak outlet
to the Colorado country was chilling
and discouraging to say the least. I
was rather fortunate in having the
cool weather, however, all the way
through, besides happening to start in
the "light of the moon."
California will have much of the
sin of and evil report about Arizona
to answer for sometime. After one
crosses the deserts west of the Colo
rado a few times, they can realize how
much of a load the Territory east is
made to bear. Take away one-half
of Southern California, and Arizona
would be nearly as far advanced to-
daj as the other half of this State.
Prom the river, I came out in
Grant's new eleven-passenger coach
made here its first trip. It had a
"back-action" in to the river in the
shape of a new buckboard for the Tuc
son line. Other new coaches and
buckboards are constructing for the
semi-weekly stage to Prescott, and
buckboards to Tucson. Grant com
menced to build shed3, granary, cor
ral, etc., at Wickenburg, of a perma
nent character, in view of his three
years' contracts; intended to purchase
good stock oi barley at Salt or Gila
valleys, and expects to make his prop
erty of very satisfactory strength and
usefulness generally, even to the es
tablishment of an express line the
boxes for which are here. But he will
return to San Francisco (by next stage
due here) before fully deciding that
Une can t help but think of Hill
Beachey's struggles up north, after
"drawing out Grant on his ups-and-
downs. It is to be hoped the latter
may finally realize as well as the for
mer. Grant feels very much encour
aged now, with the semi-weekly pros
pect, and I rather think he will have
a clear field.
A word regarding the eating sta
tions. They are evidently in natur
ally good hands now clear through,
whether they remain so or not; though
it is the determination of the stage
proprietor to regulate this feature of
the route so far .as ho can. At every
one, a firbt-class table was set, consid
ering all things pertaining.
Ehrenberg is a very promising en
trepot to Arizona. La Paz (7 miles
above) was first deserted by the river,
and is now about abandoned by every
thing else except decaying adobes;
the express office of Wells, Fargo &
Co. will shortly go, and the Post Office
soon after. In short, I believe both
these conveniences are simply await
ing orders accordingly. There is ap
parently nothing else to keep up ap
pearances of a town at La Paz. Gold
water & Bro., and Frank & Co., are
sometime established at Ehrenberg as
wholesale and retail merchants, and
Colonel Barney, of the firm of Hooper,
"Whiting & Co., was fairly opened out
in the wholesale line for the trade of
interior merchants, etc. Barney ex
pected a big addition to the stock on
the steamer due the day I left the
river. The town has every reasn to
prosper as much as a place for the
purpose could expect. It is located so
that the shifting stream will have to
strain a point to leave the town out in
the cold. On the California side, Hon.
Tom. J.Bidwellis successfully farming,
by irrigating from the river by means
of a steam pump. I partook of the
first of his melons at Ehrenberg.
Considerable merchandise for Ari
zona was met this and the other side
of the river a cylinder for the Vul
ture mill among it. I forgot to men
tion that that institution is doubly
equipiJed with machinery shoes, dies,
etc. Yesterday I noticed several
"back-action" wagons of the neat two
horse pattern, on the way to the Ari-
zona market, as well as their loads.
Nothing to my mind bespeaks coming
civilization more aptly than the advent
ot "Yankee wagons of that stripe
One-little flock of sheep (for mutton)
is doubtless as tar as Wickenburg now.
It would be a good time to purchase
sheep of good quality for stocking the
Territory, were it not for the Apache
question. I should endeavor to get a
few thousand started that way this
Fall yet, but for the Indian death
damp that hangs over it. The sheep
question has been a hobby with me
The animal is easily attended to; there
is little waste in the carcass, and the
increase ought to be unusually great
in the eqrable climate and rich pas
turage of central Arizona. Your
sheep is a peaceful brute also neither
kicks, bites or puts on airs.
Speaking of stock, etc., this part of
Calitorma has been very dry and short
ot grass that is convenient; other
wise, by driving about more into the
mountains, little real suffering is ex
perienced. Many thousands of cattle,
sheep and horses have been driven east
and north into Nevada., etc. This
drouth extends north 300 miles.
San Bernardino is more of a little
city, and its surroundings more tasty
and thrifty than 1 expected to see.
The settlement was started by Mor
mons (Josephites), who embrace (?)
full half the population yet. The
town was planned somewhat after that
of Salt Lake, but it has developed and
has all the coloring of California com
munities like Santa Clara. I am rest
ing over here a day and two nights,
and no place could have come in better
play for the purpose.
For the present, my pilgrimage in
Arizona is practically completed. The
Valley of the Shadow of Death was
left in the rear yesterday, and to-mor
row I will reach the city of Angels
no bad luck intervening. Unless the
new fruit should disagree, nothing
serious is apprehended. Expect to go

occasional scratch can be gotten up so

GEN. CROOK'S EXPEDITION.
The following letter is quite old, but
as we hope to get others noting the
progress of the expedition, we give
this as a part of the series :
Camp at Aribaipa Canon 35 miles )
from Camp Grant, A. T., j
August 1, 1871.
The good people of the Territory
will doubtless be pleased to learn
something concerning the whereabouts,
movements, etc., of General Crook's
command now operating against the
hostile Apache Indians. Hence, I
will write you a general letter letting
your readers know where we are. As
you have already stated, General
Crook, at the head of five companies
of the Third United States Cavalry,
left Tucson on the morning of Tues
day, July 11. After a long, hot and
dry march, the command reached
Camp Bowie the afternoon of the 14th.
At this point a reorganization and gen
eral refitting of things were effected.
On Monday morning, July 17, the
company of Mexican scouts, which
had been sent ahead in advance from
Tucson before the expedition started
out, returned and reported to the Gen
eral that they had seen no indications
of Indians. So, all things being in
readiness, the command moved on to
ward the Graham mountains in the
afternoon of the 17th the officers
bidding an affectionate adieu to the
commandant of the post, Major Evans,
Quartermaster Drew, Dr. Smith, etc.
"We reached this magnificent camp
on the 25th ultimo. Since leaving
Bowie, the different companies have
been kept busy following up Indian
trails discovered by the guides. About
ten days ago, Troop F, Captain Moore
and Lieutenant Bourke, was ordered
out on a scout. They left the main
camp in the evening and returned the
following evening, reporting that they
had followed up the fresh tracks of
Indians until the guide, Manuel, was
unable longer to decipher them.
Hanging up in a tree was found a
quantity of recently killed beef. It
had been slaughtered probably not
more than four or five hours before
Captain Moore's party discovered it,
showing that the company was very
close upon the heel of the rascally red
The Quartermaster, Lieutenant Ross,
with a pack train and a sufficient es
cort, left here on the 26th for Camp
Grant for supplies for the command
up to the end ot August. His caravan
got back at noon yesterday, July 21,
all safe and sound. "We received quite
a lai-ge mail and all hands "set to"
reading their letters from the "good
folks at home," and perusing the
An express will leave camp this
evening for Grant, carrying mail for
Tucson. We will leave here this even
ing or early in the morning.
What is the General's programme of
movements iroin this point, ot course
your correspondent knoweth not. I
will here remark that, even if this
campaign should not be remarkable
for the number of Apaches killed, it
will still be full of beneficial results
to the people of the Territory and sub
serve the best interesis of the Govern
ment. A large force of troops like this
traversing the Territory from one end
of it to the other, must necessarily dis
pirit and discomfit the murderous foe.
Be matters as they may, the public
may rest assured that General Crook
will plan for the best and leave no
stone unturned before he returns from
the field to meet and soundly whip the
Apaches. All feel that he is the right
man in the right place, and have the
utmost regard for and confidence in
Including guides, packers, etc., this
command numbers some 400 men.
