About the last week in June, it rained
steadily- all one night in this town and
again last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday a
large amount of rain fell. The last rain
amounted to two inches in town, and in
the mountains evidently to much more.
The latter rains seem to have extended
throughout all tho lower section of the
Territory. .Last bunday niclit, rain "fell
in torrents TjqIow Oatman Flat aud fur
ther up the Gila. Monday afternoon, very
heavy rains fell at Gila Bend and further
west, also in the mountains between there
and Maricopa Wells, and Monday night
the heavenly floodgates seemed to have
beeji thrown wide open on the Gila, es
pecially about Maricopa where we had the
pleasure of enjoying some of it. The road
from there to Florence was one mass of
mud and water, and Tuesday afternoon
the country thereaway up to and this side
of the Picacho was literally flooded with
rains. In consequence of rains and bad
roads, the stage of Wednesday was a little
behind time. Last night a fine rain fell
here, and this morning the streets are
quite soft. Clouds still hang round and
more rain is evident to-day.
It is now quito certain that the r una
and Maricopa Indians can and will raise
crops of corn and pumpkins, and the
farmers generally will plant more corn.
Possibly a little barley and wheat on the
Gila and Halt Valleys, which was not har
vested or properly housed, is aamaged but
the rains are a godsend to the country.
Lieutenant Bendike, accompanied by
Lieutenant Pardee and command, re
turned last Wednesday, having been after
the Apaches since June 28. ne reports
that he followed the Indians to Dragoon
mountains ; that on arrival there he found
a number had entered the mountains by a
narrow and dangerouB pass ; that having
but thirty-seven men, he deemed it 1m
prudent to follow where the enemy would
have a decided advantage: that he with
drew to Sulphur Springs and sent to
Bowie for aid which was promptly given
by Colonel Sumner sending twenty men
tinder Major Babcock; that in the night
July 5, he marched into the mountains
and next morning found where the Apa
ches had been camped, and ascertained
that they had,separated into three parties
anu icit ine mountains one going to
wards the Chiricahua mountains, one for
branam mountains, in the direction Camp
Apacne Keservc. the other towards An
vipa Canyon above Grant; that he found
seventy-eight wigwams, from which it is
presumed thelndiaus numbered 225; that
they had cattle and horses with them;
that appearances indicated they were well
supplied withammunition. In returning,
Lieutenant Bendire says he saw fresh
Apache tracks within two miles of his
camp on the Eillito, therefore more dep
redations may be expected any hour.
When hostile Indians arc so numerous
that a body of thirty-seven well armed
troops feel unwilling to attack them in
their rctroats, it don't seem as if there
wero much safety for toiling miners,
farmers, teamsters, mail drivers and trav
elers. Bob's letter from Phonix. is received
this morning too late for print to-day.
It -will appear next week, and arc
glad to havo the proiaiso of more
from the tamo writer.
After two months of, delightful re
lief from the monotony of office work
and cares, wo aro again at our post,
much refreshed in all respeots. From
first to last, tho trip was one of ro-
creation, and with tho exception of a
few dusty and rainy days, a contin
uous round of enjoyment. Among
tho good results of the trip, is tho
acquirement of eight pounds addi
tional flesh on our frame.
As tho readers of The Citizen well
know, tho principal pbject of our east
ern visit was to attend tho May moot
ing of tho Centennial Commission, of
which our correspondence has treated,
but which deserves and shall havo
moro time and attention. Tho Com
mission's annual meetings aro to
open on tho first Wednesday of May,
at all of which wo purpose to bo
present. A special one is to bo held
n8xt December 4, but ono mooting
each year is all wo can afford to attend,
owing to the extent of time involved
in going and returning.
Incidentally, wo spent threo days
in Washington, a part of threo in New
York and Brooklyn, ono in Boston, a
couplo of weeks in different parts of
Ohio, and ono week in Illinois, and
also" a few days in California. Al
though these visits involved somo
direct exponso and an almost total
neglect of a business which depends
for success upon vigilant attention to
it, wo regard them and all such as tho
best parts of lifo. It may suit many
who aro amply ablo to do otherwiso,
to tio themselves down to accumulat
ing monoy and property they will
leave for others to expend, but our
word for it, all such who aro not
natural misers would bo better pleas
ed with tho world in goneral and them
selves in particular, if they wero to
turn themselves loose now and then
and Beo other localities, other people,
other occupations, other productions,
than those in their immediato vicinity.
Local public affairs havo been ex
citing and in certain particulars, very
unsatisfactory, especially in thefts and
murders ; but there is liopo for somo
good results, 'ho few official and
other slanderers'1 about the Grant res
ervation, and their purchased spies,
tools, affidavit and certificato men
havo been and aro still pliying the
most false and treacherous parts, and
havo moro clearly then ever proven
themselves public enemies. Our un
derstanding of their recent conduct is
not yet full enough to go for them
now, and events which cannot long
bo deferred may and ought to consign
tho leaders to an infamous and pow
erless obscurity, in which condition to
notice thorn in any manner would bo
a gratification wo will not afford them.
So far as their slanders against us are
concerned, they havo in no respect
dono us injury. Having taken
all our positions fearlessly in be
half of tho toilinpr masses and of
those? whoso lives and property are
constantly exposed to tho fell and
thieving work of savages and mer
cenary allies of savagos, wo expected
their denunciation and slander, and
regard these as tho best proofs of tho
corroctnos3 of our course. Wo have
never expressed a sentiment on tho
Indian question wo can bo induced
to retract. The Citizen during our
absonco has expressed many views in
different words from thoso wo should
havo employed, but tho tendoncy of
all has our hearty approbation. To
thoso who so freely contributed to its
columns, wo tender hearty thanks
Good men and officers, civil and mili
tary, havo a zealous friend in The
CITIZEN, but over and abovo all has
tho community at largo.
Last Saturday's Miner has no ac
count of Indian murders, but an at
tack was mado east of tho Verde.
July 1, Ignacio Eubio was killed in
Prescott by M. ilargravo, and tho
latter was indioted for murder soon
after by tho grand jury. The day
previous John DeLong killed John
Kincaid in Williamson valley, which
was pronounced justifiable after legal
