C.U'T. FOKTEU'S SCOUT.
The Report of Capt. Porter 1ms been re
ceived at Department Headquarters. It
gives the particulars of his recent scout in
smirch of the Iinliuns who commit tod the
doprodutions in Green Valley. Ho scouted
the entire country east of Camp Verde into
Tonlo Basin, to the Mogollon mountains on
the north, nnri North Fcak to the south.
The Inte rains hud obliterated the trails
and the depredators, who hatl killed the
hort.es in Green Valley, could not bo tracked.
The llrst thing Capt Porter found was
ten, of the eleven, head of cattle reported by
the cottiers of Croon Valley to have been
: run ott by the Indians; they had simply
! strayed, through the neglect of their owners,
j Seven lndinns witli ponies were next orcr-
hauliHl by the scouts, nnd narrowly escaped
I being wiped out by the Vcrdo coutj be
fore they could make known that they were
on jm3. They were well armed ttud had
plenty of ammunition. They were from 25 to
50 miles beyond the limit allowed by thoir
jvaaoes. They were well frightened and
had n fortuunto escape, as the scouts seldom
give time to surrender or explain that they
have iHTinisidun to be absent.
Capt. Porter found that the reports of
greni unmoors ot luuians leing in the
Ton to Basin were great exaggerations, and
that thu horses killed in Green Valley were
shot by these Indians from San Carlos who
are now iu the guard-houM) at San Carlos
Agency. In shooting the horses one bf the
Indians was wounded, and the party hasten
ed bock to San Carlos for medical attend
ance. In ascertaining the cause of the In-diitii'-
Mound the deed became known at the
Reservation, and the Iudihns were arrested
and confined in the guard-house. This in
formation was obtained from the captured
Indians on pass.
Capt. Porter was out from Soptember
lflth to October 1st, marched 2JJ5 miles, not
including "boot scouts" by the Indian sol
diers. III.ACK w.Yititroit.
Mossrs. Wollonberg and Ellis
turned from the Rlitck Warrior mine, on
which they with Mr. Ruins and others have
a bond, britiidni; with them a box full of
ore, taken out of the shaft 1 10 feet from the
surface by Mr. WoUeuber, who is repre
sented to have devcloR"d an amazing amount
if muscle in the handling of ihe pick, ham
mer and giul. The specimens shown us arc
rritlently rich in native silver, which is nlain-
Iv visible to the miked eye, as well as black
sulphurcts, which constitute the real value
of the ore. This rock conies from below
the water level, and mav therefore be con
sidered a fair sample of what may be expec
ted to come from beneath, as the character
of silver ore rarely changes very much after
that depth is reached. The ledge at the bot
tom of the shaft consists of one foot of soft
gouge, containing more or less sulphcrets j
of silver, and two feet of the rock of winch
the specimens brought in are an average
sum pie. This is the mino so far as it, is be
ing worked nt present, though there is an
indefinite amount of low grade ore and bar
ren ledge matter which is very h .rd nnd has
therefore not liven cut through but is be
lieved, from indications on the surface, to
be not less than twenty-five feet in width
and may contain other ore streaks of equal
or greater richnoe than the one on which
they arc sinking.
At a depth of thirty fuet further, they
propose to cut through the ledge and see
what it contains. The Black Warrior is
now considered ,pne of the solidestand surest
mining properties in Arizona. It is not
quite so rich as some others but for pertnan
anee it gives evidence of being tirst-class.
The Clerks' licit.
The movement among the merchants of
Prescott to close their stores on Sunday
seems to be a good one, not only in a moral
and religiou- point of view butasasanitury
tneasure. Clerks, salesmen, bookkeepers
and porters, as well as proprietors, need
rest, nt least one day in seven, and without
it the stronger constitutions must give way.
One day's rest and recreation in seven has
been found by the experience of ages to be
necessary, and the human constitution is so
organized that it cannot hold up and main
tain its vigor without it.
This is not especially n Christian move
ment, although the Christian Sabbath has
been selected as the day on which to test.
Our Israelitish fellow citizens, whose sab
bath occurs on Saturday, nnd who regard
that day with as much sacredness as the
Christians do Sunday, have joined as heart
ily iu this movement as those who have been
reared in the Christian faith. They recog
nize the necessity for a day of rest, and as
they happen to be in the minority in this
country, cannot reasonably expect the ma
jority to adopt their Sabbath, so they lay
aside their scruples and conform to what
appears to be a necessity. They could, of
course keep open on Sunday and close on
j Saturday, but such a course would be atten
ded with a great ileal of inconvenience, and
they are entitled to much credit for the ac
commodating disposition manifested in this
matter. It is an unfortunate circumstance
that tho whole world cannot agree upon a
comiiion Sabbath or day of rest, it would
accommodate the wants and conveniences of
trade ns well as labor, and it docs seem that
there is a smack of bigotry in the sects, that
has for eighteen hundred years kept them
one day apart on a matter that God Almighty
can care but little about so that a day is

The following extracts are taken from
Col. Hiram C. Hodge's new book, '-Arizona
As It It,:"
"In the valley of Rill Williams Fork, and
along its tributaries, the Sandy, Santa Ma
lia, and other creeks, there are many tracts
of excellent farming lnnds, in all many thou
sand acres. These tracts are mostly in Mo
have county, and embrace nearly all the
tillable laud iu the valleys of that county
which nre at present supplied with water.
There are large valleys, however, in the
count), such as the Sacramento nnd Iluala
pni valleys, which have a rich soil, but no
water to irrigate until artesian water is ob
tained, when they would support a popula
tion of thousands. On tho summit ot the
mountains, und the table or mesa hinds,
there are many places where otatocs and
other vegetables grow well. One of these
localities is on tho summit of the Hualpai
mountains, where Mr. Similiters has raised
large crops of potatoes for sevoral years;
and several uthur localities could be mun
ioned. In Yuvnimi County there are scores of
smaller valleys than thoe heretofore men
tioned, containing from a few hundred to
several thousand acres of choice laud each,
where wheat, com, vagetablos of all kinds,
all thu common northuru fruits, ud excel
lent potatoes can be raised most success
fully. In tiie aggregate there nre in these
valleys over one hundred thousand acres of
good land, aud these beautiful and pleasant
valleys have a certuin charm about them
which is drawing to them scores of families
who arc building up plensaut homes, and
happy tlresides. The pure mountain atmos
phere which surrounds nil the little valleys
iu the mountainous regions of Arizona is
drawing to them a large share of the pres
ent farming immigration to the Territory,

There evidently was a time in the long

large valleys, now destitute, were well sup

valleys to a great depth by a rich alluvium
brought down from the mountains by water
erosion, and perhaps other causes, have
operated to make them destitute of water,
and consequently uninhabitable, until water
shall be obtained by artesian wells, or oth

Rev. J. A. Merrill lectured again on Sun
day evening on Paul's missionary journeys.
This time he followed him through his
second mission, which carried him to
Athens aud Corinth, and embraced the first
introduction of Christianity into Europe. ;
niui nnti namauns mm a nine unpleasant
ness at Autioch, aud Paul accused Barnabas
ot nepotism, in wishing to take witli them
in their proposed mission John Mark, a
nephew of the latter, who had deserted
them on their trip to Cvprcss. Paul ob
jected and they disagreed so violently that
they separated. Rarnaoas took lus nephew
and went his way, and Paul took Silas and
proceeded to Rerbe aud Lystra, where he
fell iu with a young man by the name of
Timotheiis who pleased him, aud ho took
him longnlso and went throughout Phry
gia, and passing by Mvsia came to Troas.
Here it was that Paul had a vision ot a man
from Macedonia standing over him and
uttering tho cry, "Come over into Macedo
nia and help us." Recognizing this as a
call to preach to the people of Macedonia,
they went via of Samothracia to Ncapolis,
and on the Sabbath, which was probably
Saturday, went outby a river and converted
a woman named Lydia, whom they bap
tized, with her household, aud these were
the first Christians converted and baptized
ou European soil. Here Paul got into
trouble by commanding a divining spirit to
come out of a woman, but got out of it, nnd
converted the jailor who had them iu charge.
They next weut to Thissalouica and made
accessions to the Church, but met with per
secution and departed to Rerca, where many
were added to the Church through their
teaching. Their next move was to Athens,
the most enlightened city iu in the heathen
world. Here the preaching of Paul met
with marked success. And here it was, on
this trip that he preached his celebrated
sermon on Mars Hill, from the text, "The
From Athens they proceeded to Corinth,
and entered into copartnership with a Jew
from Italy, in the tent making business, by
the name of Aquilla. Thcv remained a long
time in Corinth, and Paul, taking leave of
his brethren, sailed into Syria, and after
stopping at Ephcsus a short time he left, to
be in Jerusalem in time to attend a grca
feast that was about to transpire. Apollus
appears to have taken his place at Corinth
and elsewhere in that region. This mission
of Paul lasted three and a half years.

LETTER FKO.H YC3C.1.
Enrroit Miner: This, the last day of
September, marks a new era in the history
of our Territory. The pcoplo of Yuma were
surprised to hear the rumbling of n loco
motive on Madison avctiue, at an early hour
this morning, for when the shadows of eve
ning rested upon the surrounding sand
hills nnd the busy hums of animated nature
hnd given place to tho sleeping quietude
of night, tho sound of axe or hammer was
not heard and the stillness of the hour was
unbrokcu as "night drew her sable mantle
o'er tho earth and pinned it with a star."
The laughing waters of the Colorado coquet
ted in the starlight ns they glided on to tho
Sea, when an army of workmen appeared
unon the western bank, and the work of
track-lnying was commenced. Positive or
tiers had been received from tho War De
partment, by Col. Dunu. commanding Fort
Yuma, that no more work should be done
on the military reservation by the raiload
company for the present, except what was
necessary to strengthen and secure the
biidge; but before the Colonel was aware
of what was going on, California and Ari
zona were united by iron rails and although
he appeared upon the scene of action with
one soldier, armed and vouipped. and,- by
virtue of the authority in 'hii vested, de
manded a suspension of hostilities, ho was
treatad with no more consideration than
shown by Joseph to Gcnanil IIoward,ex
ccpt that he was invited to take a drink,
which he proceeded to do.
It was noticeable this rooming that the
national colors were not displayed at Fort
Yuma as usual. So it may he inf rral that
the Army has surrendered to Stanford &
Co. The Railroad corporation hit long
been considered oinnijKitent, but tin- mo-t
credulous ditl uot believe that it pns.M-ssel
sutlicicnt temerity to defy the Department
of War. At eight o'clock this morning tho
advent of the pioneer passenger train into
Arizona was noted, and the shrill greeting
of the locomotive aroused us to a realizing
sense of the fact that the iron evangelists of
civilization would soon bring the echoing
caverns of the Colorado aud the worn out
wastes of chaos within a Sabbath day's
journey of tho Eastern seaboard.

ImUv Taluie "Yank."
Applcton's Journal for October contains
an article by n member of the Wheeler expe
dition, on Lake Tahoe ami its surroundings,
which embodies a very readable sketch of
the well known "Yank Clements," the origi
nal of one of the Clarence King's "Xcwty's
of Pike." The following is an extract :

tains to Nevada wnen Lake Tahoe was
scarcely more familiar to geographers than

Vandever vs. Jeffords. Our riTer Ex
changes show that Indian Inspector Vand
ever has been a trifle over-anxious to rush
into print with a view of placing the respon
sibility for this Indian outbreak. His char
ges against" Capt. Jeffords are very sweeping,
and of such n character that, if Vandever is
able to sustain them with proof, the ac
cused has a fair prospect of spending a few
years in an Eastern penitentiary. We de
cline to enter judgment, however upon the
mere statment of Gen. Vandever. We hold
the word of Capt. Jeffords to be equally
good, and presume he will not delay in pre
senting his views and counter .representa
tions. Through the columns of the News
and Independent, the charges scc squarely
made that Jeffords has sold liqnor to -these
Indians nnd that ho incited them to this
outbreak. The same papers will doubtless
afford the Captain an opportunity of presen
ting his side of the story. The colums of
the Herald arc at his service for that pur
pose much as we deprecate controversies.
It is but due the Independent and News to
state that they have treated this matter with
entiro impartiality merely prrsi-ntirg In
spector Vandevcr's statements, without en
dorsing or becoming resporsible tlwrrfor.
