San Diego, California, July
lS. According to the programme,
arrived here yesterday per the Orizaba,
.Being intensely disgusted -with, my
trip up on the Orirlamme, "which is
seaworthy steamer, but on that oc
casion offensive becauso of its un
cleanly condition, noted the fact ; now
it is but just to remark that the
voyage on tho Orizaba has been
pleasant and in no manner offensive
for want of attention generally to
ship or passengers
Among -thoso on board for Arizona,
were H. C. Hooker, E. B. and E. E.
Kirkland, and ThomaB Bray. It af
fords mo great pleasure to note the
return of Mr. Hooker to Arizona
Ho is too well and favorably known
throughout tho Territory to neod any
introduction by me, and I havo no
doubt but tho army will hail his dis
ponsation of beef and mutton with
pleasure. In this business, I'm sure he
has always stood number one with all
honest and just men and officers who
served at Arizona posts where ho fur
nished beef in tho past. Ho goes there
by this evening's stago to take a largo
share in the contract for the fiscal
year just begun, and will doubtless so
perform his work as to meet with gen

By one of thoso mysterious twists of
the postal wrists or something akin, a
letter written at Los Angeles on my
eastern journey, and principally de
voted to San Diego and surroundings,
must have miscarried, at least it did
not appear in The Citizen, and
hehco what follows. At that time,
about May 12, San Diego was not as
jubilant as now. Tho news of tho
amended Toxas Pacific railway bill
had but fairly reached here. Several
years of alternate hope, doubt and dis
appointment had schooled the peoplo
hero not to be wildly elated over the
passage of a law which gave two
years to construct ten miles of road
from their town, with such an ex
pressed preference to build all from
the eastern terminus. A prood manv
were about weary of jubilees on mere
hope based upon flexible statutes
The most enthusiastic San Diegan was
oinparatively moderato in future es
timates. But since then, railway
prospects seem to be assuming reali
ties. Jngineors are here and at work.
They have rooms in tho Horton House,
but aro fitting others oyer the Bank
ot ban Diego, livery move they
make smacks ot business. I am in
formed that unlike former ones, these
ay good com for all articles and ac-
commoaanons tnoy need, and ore
neither seeking advice nor subsidies but
are going right on from day to day in
practical labor. I saw a statement
by Mr. Eeno, tho advanced field en
ginoer, stating that ho had advanced
far enough into the mountains to as
certain that tho much dreaded tunnel
and heavy grades would be wholly
avoided. No tunnel is necessary, tho
curves aro not sharp, and tho grade
will not exceed bO and perhaps not
75 feet per mile at that point. So far
tho engineers havo gdt aionir, a
much better route than was expected
is obtained. About tho 20 th instant,
President Scott, Chief Engineer
Dodge, Director Harris and other high
officials of the road aro duo here.
"What effect thoir visit may havo on
tho work is of course mere conjecture,
so far as I know, but judging from
little indications, I would not bo sur
prised if it would result in bringing
somo iron horses hero beioro another
Iho Julian mines back in tho
mountains somo sixty miles, aro evi
dently permanont sources of wealth,
and tributary to this town. When
here before, I had somo figures given
to me, snowing then srradual improve
ment, and also facts which seemed to
remove all doubts refrn.rrHnrr t.hflir

I oi. goia to market trom them, and thoi

Such evidences admit of no dispute.
and 1 believe it about equally indis
putable that the paying ledges are
increasing in size and number. My
conversations have been with those la
miliar with the mines as well as those
whose knowledge consists in seeing
them and their products. Doubtless
other mines of gold and silver will be
discovered in these mountains, and
our San Diego friends should bestir
themsolveB on tho matter of mauufac
turing mining machinery. It may
bo a little early, but if all said bo
true, it is not much. To reap the full
benefit of her mines, San Diego must
not allow the supplies to bo simply
passed over her wharves on to wagons
for them, but grow and make the sup
plies, and thus increase her productive
population and retain tho gold dug
out or her mountains among her peo
pie. Other needed machinery could bo
manufactured with that for mining,
Baw material can easily bo brought
hero, and labor should bo iust
cheap as elsewhere.
These arid hills m the background
and plateau upon which tho town
rosts, aro not sterile, as several gar-
dons amply testify. I to-day specially
noticed the great variety of trees bear
ing fruit, tho flowers and ornamental
shrubbery in the grounds of Mr. T. L,
Nesmith. I was surprised to see the
very young peach, apple, pear, apn
cot, fig and other trees, as well as
grape vines, loaded with fruit far ad
vanced in growth. Mr. Nesinith has
only been two years making this fine
showing of fruit and shrubbery and
flowers. Asido from the beauty they
give his residence, they havo an actual
valuo of a most appreciative charac
ter. His orange, lemon, nut and other
trees aro growing finely, and must ere
long mako his home one of groat value
as well as attraction. Water and well
directed labor are tho essentials
mako not only these parched hills but
our Arizona hills and plains produo
tive and beautiful. Fruits and nuts
can bo raised to an extent of profit by
water ironi wells with windmills
It is quite certain many men make
moro money by cultivating the right
things on five or ten acres, than others
do on their hundreds in grain.
The stago is about ready to leave
and so I must proparo for tho ride to
Tucson, and if any moro jottings are
made, they 11 bo strung out in edi
