Old and Now.
To-rlay, we bid farewell to 1S7.1; ami our
renders bliall lie sptnvl tltp Inilictinn of the
"customary remark." It Is ended gone
worn out. Let us drop it as we would an old
ihoc. It is dead ami useless What do we
care for the fleeting pleasures it atl'ordud us 7
They will last but a brief time in our memo
ries and in the coining year each one is con
fidently looking forward to greater enjoy
monc.s. The batch of trouble, trials ami
vexatious disappointments which old Sev-cnty-three
brought to us are now, thank God,
bums! in the ashes of the past, and we will
not refer to them.
In the languago of a great statisraan, "we
w II take a retrospective view into the dim
future and see where we stand." Ten years
ago the first hardy pioneers of Northern Ari
zona, a mere handful of men prospectors,
miners, explorers wintered in these moun
tains. Placer diggings on Lynx, Granite, liig
Dug and Hassayampa creeks were rich enough
to make money plenty, and, though freight
from the Colorado river, the nearest point of
supply, was twenty-live cents per pound ; and
bacon, beans, lard, coll'ee and sugar were each
a dollar a pound, and flour forty cents, no
body suffered; and the evidences of mineral
wealth, in quartz, were everywhere o abun
dant that all were rich in anticipation, and
hopeful of speedy realization of their desires.
In 1SGI those hopes wero blasted by the
outbreak of the infernal Apaches, and the
history of our sufferings at their hands needs
no repetition. The attention of men of means
who wero interested in mining, which was
oagerly directed to Arizona, was turned aside
by our Indian war, and, a little later, com
pletely diverted by the completion of the
Central Pacific railroad through the rich min
ing regions of Nevada and Utah. Tho past
four years of drouth put the cap-sheaf on our
stack of set-backs, and here we are. 3Iany,
alas, how many, who wero pushing to the
front a deeade ago, havo been victims of the
arrow, bullet and scalping-knife of the red
skinned savages. Others, after years of en
durance, lost their nerve and left us for other
abodes. Tho ranks havo been kept full,
however, by recruits from other sections
of Uncle Sam's domain, men imbued with
tW restless spirit which is always urging
r -ace into new countries, aud our progr"
cen iinrvtMcf,- tiiouh very -U w. A

fds of aar 1 fisted miners who are deter
mined to stay with thti mines of pro en
value, until they mako their fortunes, or
grim death calls them to end their labors.
All these are rejoicing that the light of a
new year seems to bring with it the dawn of
prosperity; that our Indian foes are con
quered at last, and so nearly brought under
completo control, that tho farmer, miner, or
stockraiser, can each pursue his avocation in
comparative safety. We arc to-day in tele
graphic communication with tho whole
world. In a short lime tho railroad will af
ford means, of rapid transit for freight and
travelers, and though we do not expect the
millenmm to commence in 187-1, wo do look
for more permanent progress in population,
wealth, and development of our resources in
the next twelve months, than in any two of
tho past ten years.
Resources of Arizona.
Our old friend R It. Haines, Kq., who has
just returned from Arizona, where he ban been
superintending tho construction of the mili
tary telegraph, illustrates tho resources of
turn country thus : "Remove tho Apaches
from Arizona and there would be no soldiers,
remove tho soldiers and there would be no
greenbacks, tako nway tho greenbacks and
there would bo no white mon, for there is
notuing eibe to Keep tliem there." According
to this statement the Apaches aro tho foun
dation of prosperity, ami tho Government
do.:i tho right thing in sending Quakers to
nourish,, cherish nnd encourago the develop-
mem, ot uus great source ot comfort and
wealth to tho hardy settlers there. Ho fur
ther reports that a two bit meal in Los
Angeles (one of Johnny Moore's best, for in
stance,) is a feast for a king compared with
the mess of dirty beans furnished down there
for one dollar. The barbers charge one dol
lar for cutting Lair and fifty cents for shaving
a Christian. Potatoes aro eight cents per
pound, nnd tho necessaries of life nro held at
feUivation prices. Tho picture would be a
gloomy one, if drawn' by any ono but Haines,
in hU quaint, inimitabfo way, and even as be
tells it it makes us feel' thankful that wo livo
in Los Angeles aud not in Arizona.
The abovo item wo clip from the Los Angel
es Wttldy Mirror, and our first impulse was
simply to refer to it briefly,, but in order that
all our readers may participate in our feelings,
we conclude to give tho artislo entire, and
refute some of tho statements therein. The
impressions of Mr Haines, or Ida statements,
or thoao of any one man do not amount to
anything as effecting tho welfare of Arizona
eventually, but now, when ufter ten years of
perpetual warfare, wo aro just tasting tho
pleasured of peace, when thousands have
been waiting until tho Apaches were whip
ped, u come to Arizona, the publication of
such unwarrantable statements is calculated
to bo uunporarily damaging to the interests
of the Territory. For years it lias been our
constant prayer that tho power of Govern
(intnt or a postilento would rid uof the Apa
ckh. We ivould rejoico to day if every
Indian in Arizona couM bo rcmovcil totlie In
dian Territory or tuo South St a Islnmln,
never ftgatn to pollute tlio earth of Amona
with his foot-stcna. . ,
Of course, then, there would bo no more
contract or supplying Indians on resorva-
llo,,', "mi ,,,mlt T,, r.-.ove.i, the
, , '
I"1'101 uu wo rigiinotlts of tro? now in

tio,lt qiiarturninstor 3 Hiipiilii's, etc., ami no
mure cruenuacKS ctrctliatru ly tlie Mtltlicr,
but Mr Haines is badly mistaken in suppos
ing that the white men would leave Ari
zona. It Iim been the presence and ho.tility
of the accursed Apaches that has kcpt'iii from
assuming our proper position. As there is a
time in California, between when the
time tho winter rains kill tho dry gras
and the time when the new grass started by
those i tins is grown enough to make good
feed, when cattle grow poor and die for want
of nourishment, so it would be herewith men
if, nt one move, Indians and military should
both be taken out of the Territory.
Thuro would bo a brief season when vert
ically who aro employed by, or in a hundred
ways dependent on Government operation
i i. . .
in Arizona lor a living, would have nothing
to do a (mason when the market fop tiro-
duce, now largely kept up by furnishing mil
itary ami tmiian supplies, would bo very
dull. Hut a better state ofaiKiirs would soon
occur. Mining operations on a scale com
meniurato with the size and richness of the
gold, silver, and copper mines which ore
found in every county in Arizona would
soon be inaugurated, and show the world that
we are no more dependent on Government
disbursements lor our support than the State
of Nevada, or Utah.
Tho mere fact that stockraiscrs from Cali
fornia, Texas and New Mexico, after an ex
amination of tlU country, have driven
thousands of sheep and cattlo hero during
tho last few months, and are coining with
thousands more in tho spring, is of more
value than pages of such assertions as thoso
made by Haines.
In Prescott, if Ifaincs had a bath or got
his hair cut at tho harbor's ho was charged a
dollar, and half a dollar for a shave, lxc:iue
there Ls a monopoly of thoso luxuries in the
town, and until more business induces and
will support competition, we don't expect a
change of price.
Hut Haines' reference to tho dirtv bean,
for a dollar a mess, and .tho. starvation prices
of food here, is a little aggravating when the
old settlers have lately "been congratulating
themselves living is getting cheap. Provisions
at retail, in Prescott, now sell at the following
rates: Hour, S10 per hundre;!; bacon, 'M
cents; ham, 35; beans, 10; codec, 40 to CO;
sugar, 25 to 35 ; beef, 20 to 30 cents, accor
ding to the cut; pork, 2-5; mutton, 15; ven
ison or antelope, 15 cents per pound; chickens
and wild ducks, 50 cents to l each ; fresh
fish, 40 cents per pound ; potatoes, by tho
ton, slow of salo at 4 cents, but rctailincr at
5 cents per pound ; beets, turnips, onions and
cabbage, 6 cents per pound.
as everything we get from San Francisco
costs 10 cents per pound frcicht. it cannot be
expected that wo can get groceries as cheaply .

have received from Gov A. P. K. Safford,
Territorial Superintendent of Public Schools,
copies of the reports of tho different County
Superintendents of Schools, from which we
condensa these items :
During tho year 1873, public schools have
been taught in Prescott, Tucson, Florence,
Sanford, Phoenix, Yuma and Ehrenherg.
The wholo number attending school was:
In Pima county, 110; in Maricopa, 01 ; in

in Prescott, $2,100 ; total, $5,353.40.
