Woather-Mines The Prospect.
The first of the foregoing topics is just
what the people of this entire ;ctiou of coun
try have, for ever o long, ptayed. At this
time, lat year, the stream beds of this bee
tion of the country were all but dry, while,
just now, more water is nulling through
them than miners and everybody eUo can
use. Last year gave no rain or mow to do any
good Until lato in February. This hcason,
snow and rain put sulficicnt water in the
creek., about December 0, to enable miners
to carry on, profitably, the working of their
claims, without intermission, up to date.
And, now, wo have good ruajon for rejoicing
over ouo of the grandest rain audxuowstorms
of ancient or modern times, which storm com
menced, with rain, curly on tho morning o!
tho 11 th int., nnd continued until a lato
hour last night. Tho water which fell, last
night, came down in tho shapo of snow, which
is now at least six inches in depth upon the
ground, while, in the mountains around towt
tuc ueptii oi snow muit be mucii greater.
This snow was accdmpanicd by heavy thun
der and sharp lightning, unusual visitors for
February, and uovcr before heard or seen by
us here, in any other winter savo that of
1805. To say that the ground is wetter than
at any time since 18C7-8, is saying but the
truth, and the truth, in this case, issuflicient.
To further explain to people outside of Ari
zona, we havo but to state that since the
early spring of 1809 until a recent date, wa
ter, which at that date, was high up in wells
in valleys below Prcscott, kept receding un
til, income cases, it fell a distance of about
forty feet. Now, however, tho water in said
wells is all but running out of their tops, and
with our store-houses, tho mountains, illled
with snow, slush, etc, with the prospect of
several moro heavy falls of rain and snow be
fore us, this winter, and, as has been the case
after wet winter, immenso rainfalls during
the summer, tho people of Arizona may, with
certainty, look forward to a prosperous year
a year that will yield good and largo crops
ofcorn, wheat, barley, hay, vegetables, gold
Never, before, has tho prospect for a gtcat
yield of placer gold been as good as it is at
present, for, never before havo placer miners
been as well prepared to take advantago of
things as they now arc. This will be admit
ted when we tell people that Lovejoy & Co.
are now running three pipes, in thoir hydrau
lic claims, on lower Lynx creek, while above
them, on the same creek, Smith & Marcutt,
several Mexicans, the Bashford Mining Com
pany and a dozen othcir companies, besides
scores' of single miners are washing auriferous
gravel at a rapid rate, the proceeds of which
gravel may be seen at any of our stores.
The samo is true of Mig Bug, tho Hassa-
yampa and other creeks. Then tho score or
more of arrastras now running ; Hill Smith's
mill, near Wickcnburg, all doing iirst-ratc,
strengthen us in the belief that Providence
will boon make up to us for former mishaps.
The slight scare caused by the breaking
out of the Uualpai and San Carlos Indians
does not intimidate in since Gon Crook is

jugation of this wilderness, found frcochools,
churches, and overawe the red savages, whose
deeds of blood and plunder have in the past,
caused the country to lag behind most of her
sister Territories in tho race for improvement.
Mail Accomodation The shortening of
tho time It takes to carry letters, papers, eta
from one point to another, in our Territory,
lieing of tho utmost importance, in these
times of scant mail service, wo wish to im
press upon tho minds of all concerned, that
tho maIN from Yuma arrive at Ehrcuberg
Tuesday and Friday ovonings, at about seven
o'clock, while tho buckboards from Cantor
nil, carrying mails to Prescott and all other
point north of tho Gila river, Ieavo hhrcn
lwrg on .Mondays and Fridays, at about two
o'clock in tho nfternoon, always too early to
rnske clon connection with tho mail from
Yuma. Now, both routes nro operated ny
one contractor, Mr James Grnt,and it would
bo a great accommodation to the people or
Yuma, Mohave, Maricopa and Yavapai coun
ties If matters could bo arranged so as to havo
the time of arrival of tho mails from Yuma
changed, so that they could come through,
without laying over, on the buckboards for
Central Arizona. It may bo that both run
on departmental schedule time; ifsoour del
egate ought to Imj ablo to raako tho proper
ofliccr agree to such a change as would reme

Tho answer to this impertinent question is

citizens to "go West." 'Iticy nave come
