MAitvviM.r, Arir-ona, April 17, 1874
To the KiUtur of the Ariiona Miner.
It is my painful duty to record ono of
those horrible, heartrending atrocities so fre
quently committed upon the derided and
much abused people or Arizona. The fiend-
tub deed abovo alluded to was perpetrated
by Indiuns. The particulars are as follows:
On Tuesday evening, the 1 tth inst., about
8:."0 p. in., Mr. E. Hubbard and myself, star-
ivu irum 1.111a piaco tor camp .McDowell. On
reaching a oint about four miles from hero,
our animals became frightened and turiifd
out of tho road ; at tho same time our atten
tion was drawn to an object lying by the
road side, a closer oxatuinatiuu revealed a
doad body, entirely nude, face down, with
limbs stretched at full length. Wo liti-ni-,l
to the Post aud informed JJcut Ohos Hay of
our m&coTcry, wiiereupon mat gentlemanly
officer gave us mii eatort of six men with
which to return and ascertain tbo cause uf
tho outrage and, ir pjasible, to identify the
body. On reaching the spot where the out
rago was committed, we were, bv the aid of
a match, enabled to identify the liody a that
or Toomey, a citizen of Salt river val
ley. Not being able to care for tho deceased
we hurried homo to procure implements with
which to inter tho corpse. Heforu we strain
reached tho scene of the murder, day dawned
and by the light of the rising sun two ghsst
ly bodies met tho eye. They were about a
hundred yards apart, and on onnosiu sides
of the road. Jho other body was that of
Paul Handle, a citisen or Phomix, and, like
his companion, was destitute or clothin?.
Hoth bodies were pierced bv several bulleta
from large bored guns, lanced, and both had
Wo subsequently learned that tho unfor
tunate men had left McDowell between ten
and eleven o'clock, of the fatal day, with a
wagon and two mules, belonging to Thomas
Sortcll, and were met by Win. Howe, wife
ami two small children, about two miles from
the place of their untimely death. The con
tent of the wagon, except some soap ami a
bottle of vinecar, were carried off by the
fiendish murdeiers. The balance of the booty
consisted of Mr. Sortell't mules and the arms
of tho unfortunate victims.

Lieutenants Hom and Rice arrived late on
Tuesday evening, and in consequence of the
nign water in aait nver tlid not cross that
night, but were ferried over tbe next morn
formed by t uTir Indian sawf.'' tmf
ih deed was perpetrated by tho infernal
Tontos. A broken bow, which, by some pe
culiar marks, was recognized by the scout,
as belonging to a son of a notorious chief of
the Tontos in and around SujvcriUtion moun
tain. Tho gallant Lieutenants imraetZintcly
lotik tho trail of the aasarcdns, which led to
wards the Hio Salado, promising to bring tbe
offenders to justice. The record of these
officers is such that we know that they will
reconstruct all savages who may b so fortu
nate as to fall Into tbclr bands.
Salt Rivur. A gentleman from Maricopa
county informs us that tbo grain in salt
River valley is from two and a-ttalf to three
and a-half feet high and almost ready to
head out ; and that the probabilities are that
a large number of hogs sufficient to tnako
bacon enough to supply the demand of the
whole Territory will be fattened for next
fall's killing time.
Another gentleman tells us of the great
need of a small detachment of troops being
stationed at or near Maryville; stating that
small bands of Indians are, and have been
nrowllng about there for some time pastall

At Portland, Oregon, on the 8tb Inst., a prayer
platoor of sixteen women visited a saloon to eti

sounded a whistle for the police. The Chief of

Mr C. I. Chaprnan, writing from Wrash

Hooper and wife were still in that city. Dr
Lord had broken up housekeeping at Eliza
