Arizona and "Wyoming.
The revised census returns show
Wyoming to contain a less population
than Arizona, notwithstanding the
great overland railway passes through
the entire length of the former, and
was exercising much influence there
as long ago as 18G7. Early in
186S, the road was completed almost
half way through the Territory, and
at the close of that year had passed
its western boundary. We have pass
ed from east to west on different routes
through Wyoming, and do not hesitate
to say that Arizona is and will prove
the superior Territory in natural re
sources. With overiUU miles or rail
way (over which the most observant of
people are constantly passing) for at
least two and one half years, Wyoming
had in 1870 a population of only 9,118 ;
without any railroads, flanked on the
west by the vast and repellant Cal
ifornia desert, and overrun within and
on nearly all approaches to it hy active
and merciless savages, Arizona in
the same year had a population of
9,G58, and we are sure it has since in
creased, by all accounts, as rapidly as
In this connection, we may observe
that recently a lengthy correspond-1
ence, dated Tucson, appeared in The
New York Tribune, in which the
population of this city was put down
at 1,j500, whereas the census returns
show in round numbers y,200. It
evident the author of the letter had
not been in Tucson for many years
for the general tone of it was just and
favorable to the Territory, though full
of errors relating to locations of places
and incidents thereto.

FROM NEW MEXICO.
Mr. Colycr'8 Visit and Apache Murders
Las Cruces, New Mexico, Septem
ber 12, 1871. Mr. Vincent Colyer,
after paying a visit to that paradise of
ladrones the Canada Alamosa Res
ervation left for the far west to look
up and have a pow-wow with Cachise
and his clan. It remains to bo seen,
though, what effect moral suasion
and suavity of manner will have on
the renowned Apache chief and his
warriors. Some of our people who
had quite a curiosity, and who wished
to interview the great Apache philan
thropist, feel somewhat disappointed
when he departed without making
a visit to this beautiful valley of ours.
To signalize and celebrate the ar
rival among them of so distinguished
a person, a party of braves 'from the
Canada Alamosa Reservation, made
a flying trip to Lincoln county, and in
the neighborhood of Fort Stanton
murdered one of the most prominent
citizens Mr. McPherson. Beinjr short
for mutton, a party of said braves
made a raid on Sefior Ascaratas' sheep
six miles from here, but succeeded
only in getting off with some burros.
Heretofore these Indians have confined
themselves in their murdering and
plundering to the counties of Dona
Ana and Grant; but it appears that
the visit ot Air. Colyer was somewhat
an incentive for them to extend their
depredations over a larger area of
A correspondent of The New Mex
ican states that the Indians who
killed Mr. McPherson, were trailed
for some distance in the direction of
the Indian Reservation : and I have
it from a most reliable gentleman
who was over in that country at the
time, that the settlers are fully satis
fied that it was the Reservation Apa
ches who committed the outrage.
- However, sooner or later there comes
a reckoning, and it reflects great
credit on the peaceful intentions of the
people of the counties of Dona Ami
and Grant, that the score was not set
tled long ago. It might be possible to
make the people of these counties
believe that the "moon is made of
given cheese," but it will take some
thing more than any one's suavity of
manner, or, the brilliant diction of
some of the Indian agents, to make
our people believe that the Canada
Alamosa Reservation is otherwise
than a haven for murderers and a
nest of thieves.
MOVEMENTS OF TROOPS.
Camp Grant, A. T. September 17,
1871. A detachment of 30 men of
F Troop, Third Cavalry, reached this
post at 3 o'clock on yesterday morning,
under command of Lieutenant W. W.
Robinson of Troop H. This detach
ment will leave for Tucson in a few
days. Permit me here to say that
Lieutenant Robinson is an able, ener
getic and reliable officer, and takes
great pride in his profession. With due
respect, the humblest private can ap
proach him with ease and confidence.
He graduated at W est Point in 18G9.
Acting Assistant Surgeon J. A. Mul
lan accompanies the detachment to
Tucson, and has been with the troops
in the field since their departure from
Tucson, under General Crook.
We find here the great Indian Peace
maker, Vincent Colyer. I, of course,
speak most respectfully. He arrived
here from Camp Apache last Wednes
day with an escort of cavalry under
Lieutenant Bomus. What he has ac

Nathaniel Pope, Esq., Supt. of In

letter of the Hon. Secretary of the
interior ot the 'Sid July, 1871, "that

its tributaries in the mountains, and
extending down the same ten miles
on each side for a distance of thirty
miles, to be an Indian reservation, for
the sole use and occupation of the
Southern and other roving bands of
Apache Indians, their agent and other
officers and employes of the govern
ment; the laws relating to Indian
reservations in the United States gov
erning the same, until such time as
the Executive, or Congress, shall
approvo or set aside this order.
1 would therefore suggest that agent
Piper be instructed to remove his
agency and the Indians under his
charge from Caiiada Alamosa to th
Tularosa valley as soon as practicable

The War Department having di
rected the officers commanding the
district of New Mexico and Arizona to
afford military protection to such In
uians as may uo induced to come in
both on their way and after arrival at
the reservation, the agency will be
amply protected. And the department
having authorized me to supply these
Indians with whatever may be neces
sary, you are at liberty to incur such
moderate expenditure as may be ab
solutely necessary to carry out the
above instructions. Very respect-
lully, your obedient servant.
