Phescott, A. T., Sept. 28, 1871. As
there is considerable stir about quartz
mining in Mohave county ju.-b now in
what used to be called the Sacramento
District, a few words concerning a
visit to that section, lately made by a
party from Prescott, may be of some
interest to your readers.
Messrs. A. E. Davis, Robert Davis,
C. A. Luke and wife, H. Bowers, J.

the road again at 10:!i0 and at 11 the
rain took the road with us and kept
us company till we made Camp Hual
pai early in the afternoon. We were
fortunate in getting excellent accom
modations in D. P. Poster's store,
where we were enabled to get dry and
were well cared for in every way by
J. Marr, who runs the store in absence
of the proprietor. All Thursday night
rain fell in torrents and on Priday and
Friday night with short intervals be
tween showers ; 2 8-10 inches of water
fell in 24 hours on the 8th according
to the rain gauge at the Post. Quite
an excitement occurred in the night of
Thursday by the falling in of the large
adobe chimneys at the tents occupied
by the families of Lieutenant Paul
and Dr. Ensign. Both fell in upon
the tents, mashing every thing in their
way and making a fearful muddy
wreck of the quarters which looked so
Saturday morning was bright and
warm, and though the road was a lit
tle soft, we got to Anvil Rock, 22 miles,
in time to camp at an early hour. The
country looked fresh and lovely after
the rain and we feasted on wild cher
ries to our heart's content, for the road
was lined for several miles with trees
bending under that fruit. On tho
10th, took lunch at Port Rock, a nice
looking farm where we got melons,
milk and some of the best of potatoes
from the farms, and went on to Cot
tonwood creek making a camp just
Monday, 11th On the road early
and drove 2 1 miles to a point opposite
to Wallapai or Hualapai springs,
where we stopped and got feed for our
selves, drove the horses to the springs
or of a mile from the road, and
realized, as we heard the Indians sing
ing and hallooing at us from the
mountain, that we were in a peaceful
country again, though when t!ie Wal
lapais may break out again, no one
can tell ; yet we were glad to know
they are good Indians for the present,
and atter leaving the springs and driv
mg on i or -s miles to rass, -when
laid down to sleep, it was with a feel
ing of safety quite unusual to most of
the party when on the road during
Tuesday, 12 th. Rode in to the mil
itary post at Beale's springs about 8
o'clock and got breakfast at the store
owned by Mr. Bowers, whom we left
there, and went on round the point of

uiuir prolonged struggles to open that
section. Here we were at the southern
end of Cerbat range of mountains,
and around us on the mountain sides
wero mines that Messrs. Davis &
Luke had located and worked upon
four or five years ago and been forced
by the Indians, like many others, to
abandon temporarily. Now those
same Wallapai Indians bring wood
and water and herd the stock for the
miners. This point is. about140 miles
from Prescott in a northwesterly di
rection. Wednesday, 13th. Leaving Mrs.
Luke to rest at the camp, the rest of
us took to the mountains with Wm.
Fee as guide and made a long daj of
it, and were amply paid for climbing
and going through brush and over
rough hillsides by the sight' of the
huge vains of argentiferous galena
which we visited. The Woodworth,
Franklin, Union, Mohave Chief, Van
derbilt and Champion, were the larg
est we saw, and all have been worked
on sufficiently to show that they are
valuable. The Vanderbilt is a gold
mine of milling ore and assays up to
400 per ton ; the others are galena and
assays from the Union have reached

the ridge "Marion's Benefit," and
neither of the party who climbed it
will forget it soon ; 'twas a tough pull
at the end of a hard day's tramp for
legs not in good climbing condition,
but the view from the top where we
rested was fine and the breeze cool,
and the descent to camp where supper
awaited ifs easy, and the night's sleep
refreshing. Next morning we left
Cerbat well satisfied.
Thursday, 14th. We reached Min
eral Park, a beautiful basin in the
mountains, at noon. 4Tis distant
across the mountains from Cerbat o or
G miles around the wagon road about
8 miles. Here a five stamp mill is be
ing built ; a town is laid out ; whisky
shops are in full blast ; some 200 men
are building houses, grading lots,
working mines and bristling about in
all thft various ways incident to a new
mining camp. Here we all found old
acquaintances, and Mrs. Luke found a
new one. We felt quite at home, and
the way we' were hustled round from
noon till dark, from one mine to an
other, was a sight to see. The Key
stone, Lone Star, May Flower, Seventy-one,
Macedonia, and a host of
others wo saw that will be famous in
days soon to come. Most of them
carry milling ores, chlorides, horn
silver, ruby silver, and free white
shining silver we found in abundance.
Many of the ledges are large from o
to 12 and 15 feet in width. The boys
are working with a will, too. Sev
eral shafts are down 50 to 70 feet on
veins that were discovered only a few
weeks ago. Some of the smaller
veins are very rich and the lucky
owners sack up every pound of the ore
as fast as it comes out of the vein
for shipment to San Francisco. Freight
from the mines to San Francisco is r.ow
only 40 per ton, and a little compe
tition of teamsters on the land
freight over the 30 miles between the
mines and the Colorado river will
doubtless make a reduction of 10.
Empire District is about G miles
north from the Park. We had not

Cerbat District. Tho mines are un- i

access. There are ijlenty of springs !
of water, and though there is no pine
flffower larsra tnliper .n the ranj
there is plenty of cedar and juniper
to afford fire wood for years. About
300 men. are now at these mines and
more daily coming in from Nevada.
Provisions and other supplies are ob
tainable at Hardyville, 30 miles dis
tant, and there is every prospect now
that a prosperous mining camp will be
permanently established in the Cer-

Friday afternoon, 15th. We drove
across Sacramento Valley to Union
Pass, 10 miles, and spent the night
there. Saturday, 16th Leaving Mr.
and Mrs. Luke at the Pass, we went
on a down grade some 12 or 13 miles
to the great Colorado River, reaching
Hardyville about 10 A. jr. Messrs.
Hardy, Todd, Bull and other friends
received us with open arms and made
our stay very pleasant. Sunday, 17th.
Our party, with the addition of
some three others, visited Fort Mo
have, seven miles below Hardyville.
Major Pond, the commander, and
Quartermaster Eagan and wife enter
tained us most kindly and showed us
the sights at the fort. Paul Breon
and A. Spear have a store near the
fort, and Mr. Breon gave us there a
regular blow out of a dinner ; and on
our way back we took a late evening
lunch at Sheriff Smith's on watermel
ons of the best quality. The nights
were hot in Hardyville, and the editor

we took in Mr. Bowers again at
Beale's Springs. After camping over
night near Wallapai Springs, and
while at breakfast, two Wallapai
squaws with three children came to
camp and made a clean sweep of
everything eatable which we had loft.
Our home trip was accomplished
without accident or other noteworthy
incident on Saturday evening the 23d,
and next day Mr. and Mrs. Luke gave
to the rest of their companions of the
journey a dinner of which we can only
saj' that it was a glorious wind up of
a most agreeable excursion.

He found tho compilation of the laws
a much greater task than he antici

task early and late attention, and
September 24, the whole job, includ

completed. The session and compiled
laws, (and we believe the legislative
journals, too,) will be boxed and
shipped before Mr. B. leaves, and
hence they may all be expected hero
inside-of two months.
