Tho FIcarhu Depot flatter.
Thk Citizen has already referred to
the e-stablisment of a depot fur general
business at Picacho, about twenty
miles east of Casa Grande. From
Granville "Wheat, Eq., one of the
Pihal 'Supervisors and resident at Flor
ence, we learn that it is the wish of
the Florence pcopl ; generally that it
should be done. If it would better ac
commodate Florence to have a depot
at Picacho- than at Casa Grande, u
certainly would do the same for Pinal'
Globe, and other places iu that direc
tion, and would render the one at Casa
Grande unnecessary, so far as the
country is now developed. Picacho
would also belter serve Tucson. A
petition is being circulated here ask
ing for depot privileged at Picacho.
The Company is kindly disposed to all
this section of country, and it is fuite
certain that it was disposed to make
the change. The wagon road from
Picacho is better and shorter to all the
points named to the north and north
east. It would be to tho advantage
alike of the railway and its patrom to
comply with the request of the peti
tioners, and" there i little doubt but it
will be granted and carried into effect
as soon as the rush at Tucson and the
front is fairly over. But ft is a good
idea to have the petitions circulated
and signed by all friendly to the
changs bth in Pinal and Pima coun

Washington-, April 3. The Senate
Committee on Railroads gave a hear
ing to-day to Ex-Governor Brown of
Tennessee, Vice President of the Texas
Pacific Railroad Company, in advocacy
of the pending bill to extend the time
for the completion of the road. He in
formed the committee that the road
will be completed to El Paso by the
1st of January, 18S3, and when that
point is rea&hed the company will
have constructed 822 miles of its main
line and have In operation a total of 1044
miles of railroad, for which it will not
have received an acre of land or a dol
lar of money froni the General Govern-
ment, although the Government has
the same privilege to regulate rates for
transportation and the same right of
the use of all portions of the road for
military and postal purposes that Ihe
United Slates enjoj-s in regard to the
Union Pacific and Central Pacific
roads, which were liberally aided from
the start. He pointed out that the re
mainder of the line, viz: 778 miles
from El Paso to Sau D.ego, is the only
portion to which a land grant is at
tached. The ten years fixed by
Congress for the completion of the
road to San Diego will exnire in

What Is Jleinjf Done There.
Much work is being done in the Old
Hat District, and each week shows
new developments, which strength
ens the faith of those who hiive invest
ed, believing in the permanency and
ultimate richness of its mines.
The main shaft on the American
Flag is now down 85 feet, revealing a
vein 3K fect "Wide, which shows an
average value, ta"ken from a number
of assays, of $471.20 in silver and $15
in gold, a total of $460 26 per ten
There is about $15,000 worth of ore at
present on the dump, and the four men
working are taking out about .$1,000
worth of ore each day. Another shaft
has been started 300 feet east of the
main one. It is down 32 feet, and
will, it is expected, strike the ledge at
about 40 leet.
The Wedge, adjoining the above
mine on the east, has a shaft down 13
feet, which shows a vein 2 feet wide,
assaying $200 per Ion on the average.
The Pioneer shaft is dowu 42 feet,
the entire bottom being in high grade
ore, assaying $400 per ton.
This group of mines has been bond,
ed to Eastern capitalists, who are de
veloping them as rapidly as possible,
and will in a short time erect a fifteen-'
stamp mill. The cropping extend for
nmv being worked, is showing a vein
across the shaft, at the bottom, of the
same character of ore that is traced
from the surfaee An average assay
of $107, and they are .now opening
upon a large body of mineral. We
term its location "Mineral Hill,' where
are located the Anchor, Last Chance,
Allis, Luck Sure, Wedge, and other
famous mines, and is withiu a stone's
throw of the Sunset.
In the Head Centre, the first level is
in carbonate ore, and H drifted south

m which is free gold and horn silver,
some the richest specimens we Have
ever seen in camp, and .he vein matter
shows up largely as the worlc ad

a valuable investment.
Some g"ld specimens from the claim

gonia District, which, .1 believe is
generally understood to include the
Harshaw, Patagonia, or Mowrey and
Washington camps, all of which are
exciting high hope, and to me appear
fully justified. A town is rapidly

which caused this heretofore lonely
camp to swarm with .human life.
Paths which were only trod by the
Apache in the near past, are now daily
pressed by the feet of pilgrims from
every land, in pursuit of wealth.
Work on the Hermosa mill-site is rap.
idly approaching completion, and I
believe the machinery for the mill is
all on the ground. I did not visit the
Hermosa mine, as I was informed that
visitors were uot admitted. It is not
to be supposed that this exclusiveness
arises from the fear that the mine will
not bear the most critical judgment,
but is the dictate of a like sentiment
to that which governs the children of
the east in veiling their most precious
beauties from the common gaze. Be

The San Carlos Mill nnd Mining Com
pany have commenced to develop their
mining property near Ramboz catnp;
they are going to sink a prospecting
shaft to a depth of one hundred feet
aud cros cut the vein, and if the pros.
pects warrant lit they will then erect a
five or ten-stamp mill at or near the
mine. The vein on the surface is
about ten feet wide and assays from
25 to 400 ounces in silver and a little
gold. This claim is known as the St.
Patrick, and is located on the great

most famous mines of Globe District,

ilton Disston, of Philadelphia, be
comes the mineral magnate of the
Quaker City, and one of the leadinir
precious metal princes of the country.
His success as a manufacturer has
jeen very great, but his triumph in
tlfis new field of enterprise will be
gri ater. Iftris a man of wi-io saws as
fell as steel ones; his munificence and
erprise are alike unbounded: he is
a leading politician, whose sway is
always in the interest of the people;
his successful management of the Orion
Mining Company is of a niece with
his admirable direction of his Key
stone Saw Works. Mr. Disston is yet
a young man, and before the close of
the current decade he will be the fore
most citizen of Pennsylvania. Bullion.
