and thoroughly devoted to the interests ot
the county and Territory. It is now under

Castle Dome Landing is thirty miles
above Yuma, at which an active little town
is springing up, and from which point the
Castle Dome mines, fifteen miles distant,
are supplied. A store and poet-niKco i
kept here bv Win. P. Miller, who has also a
smelting furnace in successful operation.
Large quantities of argentiferous galena,
and copper ores, are shipped from Castle
Dome Landing to San Fraucisco. Popula

"Ehrenberg is the present crossing of the
Colorado River of the California and Ari

could be reduced in twenty-four hours,
now the capacity can be increased to from
15 to 60 tons.
In Pinal county, although the mining en
terprises are, as it were, in their infancy,
much is lieing done which goes to show
that th deposks of mineral are very valua

brought iu and erected, some of which are

satisfactory profits to their worthy owners.

are numerous throughout the county, anil
the shipment of bullion will justify us in
the assertion that, in no country are the
minus more valuable than here in Yavapai,
and with the completion of the new ma
chinery now being put up, we expect the
increase in bullion will exceed anything
heretofore chronicled, several fold.
To the West, in Mojave couutr, we have
the McCrackin mint, whic h, in size and
richness, surpasses the renowned Comstock
of Nevada; and just now two new mills are
under construction, which will be used in
turning out the glittering bars of silver
from this wonderful deposit.
During the next year we look for the
population of the Territory to be doubled,
and the day is drawing nigh when the State
of Arizona will cause another star to be
placed on the American Flag.
SOCTHlir.N fACIKIC K.
II. AS A MONOI
Sometime since we had occasion, through
tne columns of the Miner, to make refer
ence to the enormous tariff being imposed
on the citizens of Northern Arizona by tlie
Kings who are seated in their frnura fnmti
and basking in luxuries, equaled only by
those of Cleopatra, whereby the consumers,
although poor, still honest, are being roblxxl
to the amount of $3,000 per month, to which
allusion the Sentinel of the 28th ult., perti
'If 100 tons of merchandise arrived in
Prescott on auy one day, by all the teams
arriving from every direction, which we
doubt, we certainly believe it never hap
pened before, much less that it ever will
again, and still less that it ever will, even
once a month for one year or for ten years.
Why then does not the Mixek continue its
calculations? If the "overcharge of this
California railroad monotiolv" is fortv -thous
and dollars per year (which it is not even on
the Mixer's statement, for twelve times
three Ihou-and are not l'rty thousand) and
$400,000 for ten years, it would be $4,000.
000 in 100 years, aud so on."
The Sentinel has a right to think just what
it pleases, but that will not change the mat
ter in the least. The people who buy and
pay the freight ou the goods landed in Pres
cott ought to be pretty good authority in the
premises, and as to Prescotts never having
received one hundred tons or merchan
dise in any one day, why it is one of com
mon occurrence as we happen to know, hav
ing been engaged in the freighting business
in Arizona for over eleven years, and believe
wc understand the question in all its details.
As to the Miller Brothers owning only
five teams, as stated by the Sentinel, we
would ask the Sentinel man to come again.
Add 1JJ to 5 and you will have the correct
number; then multiply IS by 9 and you will
have an aggregate of lt2 tons which the
31 illcr Brothers are capable of handling
with their own teams, to say nothing of
some ten to fifteen outside teams they keep
employed almost constantly.
The iliNKi: was correct iu every particu
lar, sneaking ot the outrageous charges of
the iniuopo!y,and rather underestimated our
grievances than exaggerated them. Therefore
we said "about $;?,nHI per month or $40,000
jut annum." The people are thoroughly
awakened to the imjMrtauce of finding an
other channel through which toceceive their
supplies, and are determined to throw oft"
the yoke without regard to whether the Sen
tiuel or the riiig it advocates likes it or not.

Tltli TI KRS AND KTSSIANS.
The great armies now engaged in one of
the moft bloody wars of modern time, have
of late been actively employed, at one titnu
with the odds in favor of tlte Russians and
at the next moment looking bright for the
troops of the Orient. But a few days since
the Hussion occupied a triangular osition
based ou two point on the t)anulc Sistova
and NikopolU the appcx of the wedge at
the Schipka Pass; while the Turks lay iu
three bodies one before Schipka under
Suleiman Pasha, the second at ltasgrad un
der Mehemet Ali, the third from Plevna to
Lovacz, under Ostnan Pasha. Hostilities
commenced with a violent assault by Sulei
man mi ltadetiky's Russians at Schipka
Pass, where the Turks were repulsed from
dav to dav. with a final admitted los of
7,000 men. No sooner was this movement
closed, than Mehemet Ali iu his turn ad
vanced and drove the Russian lines on the
eastern flanks of the triangle, back from
the River Loin to the Yantra, somu twenty
five miles. The Russians at this point wore
commanded by the Czarevitch, the heir ap
pireut to the Russian throne, and seem u
have been greatly outnumbered, as also at
Tla first return movement was executed
by the Grand Duke Nicholas, almost at the
same time, by a general attack on tlie ioi
tiousof Ostnan Pasha. Here the tables
were turned, the Russians iotseasing a heavy
numeral superiority, sweeping the Turks out
ot Lovacz aud closing in upon Plevna. In
the account of the first day's advance there
seemed to be every indication of a sjwody
victory, which, however was disappointed.
Once within the line from Plevna toGrivic
ta a Mil dl place to the uorthwest Osinan
Pasha successfully resisted every tubsequent
effort to dislodge him, and last week re
pulsed a grand assault of the whole Russian
line with such fearful slaughter that the
Grand Duke was compelled to oiien a regu
lar siege of his enemy's iiosiuoiii, which
lasts up to this writing.
The crisis seems to lie almost over, and
the result is nearly certain. There is no
proiiability that the Russiaus will advance
to Adrionople this year. The fall rains are
almost at hand, and there is not a road
worthy of the name in Bulgaria or Roumelia.
If Osmati Pasha fails, as seems jxMsiblc, tlie
Russians will winter in their prrnent iosi
tions. If he holds out there is every prob
ability that they will fall back to the Dan
ube, holding NikopolU and Sistova as tttet
lit jMintt, and sustaining themselves in Rou
mania till next spring. Then it will be a
question of men and money.

On Saturday last, September 2flth, the
butcher firm of M arson A Etchito at Alex
andra, weie killing a leef, and as Ktchilo
:xl with a bloody knife in his hand, hold
ing it out from his person to avoid getting
his clothes bloody, his partner, JIarson, who
w as passing quickly by him, slipied and
loll agrinst the k'nile, which being very
sharp entered the body of .M arson, making
a fatal wound of which he died iu about
three hours. The deceased was buried at
Alexandra on Sunday. These facts are furn
ished us by Owen Martin, who came in from
the Peck mine yeterdy, and was there at
the time of the accident. This is the first
death that has ever occurred in Peck dis
trict, from any cause, mi far as we can learn,
and the flourishing little City of Alexandra,
whose pride it has been until now, that it was
without a grave yard, can make the claim
no longer. A town of two years' growth,
surrounded by a mining imputation of some
hundreds, that can make such a claim, needs
no certificate as to its sanitary character.
Tlie death of Mr. Marsou, was, we under
stand, purely accidental, no blame attaching
to any one. His death is regretted by all, but
more especially, and deeply, by Mr. Etchito,
in wluwe hand the knife happened to le at
the time of the accident. It is hoped that
the growth of tlie cemetery at Alexandra,
of which this occurrence forms a nucleus,
may here stop, and that at least another two
years may roll away before another is added
to its solitary occupant.
