COMING TO ARIZONA.
Last mail brought us letters from people
residing in nearly all the States of the Union,
asking for information about Arizona; its
climate, soil, etc. The writers .state their
determination to come to Arizona. We
have, already, answered a great many such
letters and shall endeavor to answer those
now on hand as well as those to come, hoping
thereby, to benefit our Territory and the
rho are thinking of
making it their" liouicffi'he printed slips,
containing condensed ftftormation for 'fur-

printed at our own expense are willingly
sent to all enquirers after knowledge of Ari
zona (postage paid by us;) not alone this',
wc send them copies of the Mixer, at our
expense, too, and shall continue to do so as
long as we can stand it. Hut, there may be a
limit to our standing, in this respect, so we
have nn idea that next legislature outfit to
authorizo some competent person or persons
to compile, print and distribute pamphlets
containing all sorts of information for in
quirers after homes in Arizona. California
lias invested largely in such "works" and is
now reaping her reward by additions to her
population. The tide of immigration is not
always going stop in that State. It' i, at
present, moving in this direction and its
speedy arrival here ought to be encouraged.
The thousands who are now Hocking to Pan
amint will feel the air of Arizona, as it is
wafted across the California desert; this air
will impel them on, oa, until they reach our
glorious Territory, when the era of pros
perity, for which wc pioneers have .-o long
waited will disclose itself and turn our quiet

Our climate, soil, mineral and other re

Upon a criticism of the recently submitted
Annual Report of Indian Commissioner
Smith, the Xew York World has expended,
perhaps the proper word to uo in this connec
tion should be "wasted," an undue portion of
the Attic salt flavoring ordinarily the terse
and epigrammatic editorials of that able
paper. Virtue may be its own reward,
but virtue will, we fear, deiive little
consolation and but slender recompense
from assailing bubbles of gas, as Smith and
bis reports are generally considered; not a
greater waste of strength was the Knight of
La Mancha's attack upon the wind-mills or
the wine-bags, while quite as great renown

MINUS AND MINING.
IIassjyampa District. S. 0. Frederick's
ten-stamp mill is about ready for operation.
He has, within ready reach of it, over 1,000
tons of quartz that will pay him at least
50,000. His mine looks as if it would'hold
out forever, so, his chances for- becoming a
quartz king are decidedly good.

on the cast, has a population of about 30.

with their "mills of the gods" arastras,

Owners of the Davis mine, which is one of
the richest and largest silver mines in this or

From the Leavenworth Daily Commercia
of Dec. 3d, we learn the harrowing patticu
lars of the ina.'r-acre, by Cheyenne Indians,
of a German family of emigrants, on their
way from Georgia to Colorado. The story
is narrated by two of the sunivors, little
gills, rescued in a gallant charge upon the
camp of red fiends, made by a detachment
of the Dth U. S. cavalrw These little waifs
aged respectively eight and five years, found
in the camp after the fight of the noble (?)
Chcyennes, presented a pitiable sight, being
almost nude and covered with tores and
scars from head to fo;t. They say their
family when attacked consisted of nine per
sonsthe father was shot dead, the mother
and eldest son brained Yvith an axe, little
baby killed by being thrown against a tree,
and one of tho d-iusrhtcre, an "invalid, put j
out of the wav bv a knock on the head. '
This left four, the little girls rescued and two
other daughters of mature age, stilt captives
with the Cehycnnes who have ttscd them for

Washington, Dec. 22. The railroad lobby;
especially thaso interested in the Texas-
Pacific aid bill, appear very much dcinoral
ized to-night. It is considered by most per
sons, except a few enthusiastic friends of,
Col. Scott, that the vote on Holman's reso
lution, to-day, yv.t' a test vote on the
strcifgfu of "the Texas-Pacific bill. The
resolutions declared that no subsidies in
money, bonds, or public lands or any pledge
of the public credit should be granted by j
Congress, it was orougui up on a motion
to suspend tne rule, in order to pass ir,
which motion required a two-thirds vote.
One hundred and forty-nine voted in favor
of suspending the rules, which Yvas only one
less than the number required. Seventy-live.
voted against the motion. Clayton, Pageij
and Luttrell otcd for, jmd Houghton voteil
against suspending thej'ules. Although the
resolution was not parsed, yet tho ayes and
mv lmvinV Wn rilled each member afl
nas naung oeen emeu, tacit muuutj ap
pears on the rccurd according to his vote;
and this fact, it is believed, will prevent
many who might desire to vote aid to the
Texas-Pacific from doing so. It.is claimed
that the 75 members who voted against tbe
resolution will all vote for the Texas-Pacific
bill, but to get a majority of the Llouse to
pass the bill it will require the vrtes of
about 40 more. It is rumored this evening
that Colonel Scott has agreed to a comprom
ise which will be acceptable to the Central
Pacific railroad people. It is underatjod that
Scnatois Sargent and Ilagcr are opposed to
the Texas-Pacific bill in any form.
San Francisco, Dec. 22 Stocks were ac

arrived says, there are about l,."i00 people in
Panamint, and more are arriving than leav
ing. At the election, held a week ago, for
mining Recorder, J. M. JIurphy was elected.
Over 900 votes were cast, but as the voting
was done early, late and often, no correct
idea of the number of the population can be
had from that vote. He says there is con
siderable money in circulation, and the Com
pany are spending their capital very freely
in developing their works. The new dis
trict of Coao, about .10 miles front Panamint,
is now looming up. Deposits of smelting
oie, such as exist in Cerro Gordo, havo been
dis.'oveied, and a large camp is springing up.
3Iany people have gone therefrom Panamint.

The old man, after & e months absence, has re tamed to
I'rescott once more. On my trip to San Fraoelsco, by
tie way of Nctt Meiko, Colorado, Wyoming. Utah and
Nevada, I made it my- business to learn the styles aad,
alio the most prolitable way of doiag h urines. The caih
system Is the best for the teller and also the buyer.
Yoa -nil all adinit that a cash customer la this cottntry
most pay fur the lowes that a merchant may maxa by
soiling- oa a credit. Therefore we think H Is to the advantage-
of the c!t"xens of Prescott and suburbs, to let them
kaotr the style of businets vre intend doing from this oa.
Any person rnirciiaajicg ten or mere dellari vrortjsto
goods, vrill get a Aiscouat of 5 per cent on every dolUr
Trorth he may purchase ,at our store, for cash, and' we will
sell you goods at greatly reduced prices. We are saw
receiving-a Tery i;ae, select stock of goods of every de.
scription, atd we will be pleased to convince you. Giro
us a call before purchasing elsewhere.
