Local Mining' and Mining Prospects.
Early in the week, Mr. Barnes of the
Young America mine in Silver Mountain
district, came into town and brought with
him samples of ore taken out at a depth
of seventy feet. These samples appear
like very rich silver ore but are principally
copper. The metallic copper so abundant
at and near the surface and the light color
ed rock mixed with it, have at the present
deptli of seventy feet turned to a bluish
colored mass of soft matter which hardens
when exposed to the air. The vein pitches
south so that the bottom of the shaft is on
one side, and a drift has been started
with a view to develope the full size of the
vein. This drift was in fifteen feet and

Dr. iianuy informs us that D. C. Thomp
son has built five arrastrars within about
three miles of the Ostrich mine, and is
putting up a splendid stone dwelling
house one the Doctor thinks equal to any
in Arizona. His new site was selected be
cause of better conveniences of wood and
water. Mr. Thompson has not been very
successful so far but is full of hope.
Our latest dates from Guaymas are up
to Octoccr 23. At that time, nothing ex
citing was going on. All were anxious to
hear something' favorable from the nego
tiations lately going on with reference to
the Guaymas and Arizona railway.
General Escudero, Mexican consul for
Tucson, had not yet returned from Culia-
can, whither he was with his family who
were unwell. His baggage, books and
flag were in Guaymas.
There was some talk of sending 100
troops to La Libertad to build government
buildings to accommodate the customs'
officers and public business at that port

More Indians Killed.
Some weeks ago, a mail carrier named
I Kennison was killed in the northeastern
part of the Territory on the Prescott and
Santa Fe route. Two weeks ago, our dis
patches showed that Gen. Crook was out
in that direction among the Moquis, and
we thought then he was ferreting out the
perpetrators of the deed. He satisfied
himself that it was the work of Indians
and ordered a force out from Camp Apa
che to hunt up and punish the guilty ones.
The command was under Lieut. B. Reilly,
Fifth Cavalry, with Geo. Coolcy as guide.
The Miner of the Oth gives this account
of the scout
Lieut. Reilly sfospected the country
very attentivjrfy, on the evening of the
20th discovering a small jrarty of three
ursucd by our
one, an old
man, captured. The captive soon became
exceedingly communicative and expressed
himself freely about the murder of Ken
nison, which he said had been committed
by a party of young bucks from the ran
chería he belonged to, and that one of
them had been killed while on the raid,
lie said the Moquis kept them well sup
plied with guns, ammunition, blankets
and such other supplies as the Apaches
needed and were able to purchase. Final
ly, he agreed to guide a party of troops
to their village, which was attacked early
on the morning of the 2od, with a loss to
the renegades of sixteen killed and one,
a boy of twelve years old, captured. In
the ranchería were found many new Mo
qni blankets, besides arms, ammunition
and other munitions of war evidently
only lately obtained from the Moqui Ind
ians. Two head of cattle were also found.
The United States Supreme court has
decided in the case of Best vs. Polk, 18
Wallace, that a potent to land is void
which attempts to convey lands previous
ly granted, reserved from sale or appro
priated; and in the case of Lamb vs.
Davenport, that "unless forbidden by
some positive law, contracts made by
actual settlers on the public lands con
cerning the title to be acquired in future
from the United States, are valid as be
tween the parties to the contract, though
there be at the time no act of Congress
by which the title may be acquired, and
though the government isi pnder no
obligation to either of the parties in
regard to the title."
