DKATII OF WI. K. DENISON.
The following poem, written by themother
of one of Arizona'd murdered pioneers, was
published in the Miner somo years since.
and is now reproduced at the rcque.it of
some of those who shared with Mr. Denison
the hardships and privations of frontier life,
and who have escaped the the bullets and
arrowa of the murderous Apaches' by which
he fell. Mrs. Denison the writer, is a resi
dent of Memphis, Tenn., and her son, "Win.

The settlement in Verde Valley is fast
assuming an air of importance and permc
nance second to none in the Territory. AVe
have received a letter giving facts concern
ing the social and agricultural progress of
the people living there, but it is a little too
liberally interlarded with original poetical

liberty of .selecting from it the following:
On Thursday night last the surprise party
at Johnson & Maxwell's was a most agreea
ble alfiiir, but the party was most surprised
to find Mrs. Maxwell fully prepared for them
with a piping hot supper. Kev. McKoan
preached to a large audience at Johnson &
Maxwell's on Sunday morning, and at Mr.
Davis' in the evening. The people of the
Valley arc unfortunately divided in interest
and sentiment on the question of location
for a school-house and the consequence is
they have none at all. this is all wrong,rthey
can never be a perfectly happy people until
they make some provision for educating
their children, besides by thi3 obstiuacy
they are losing their hare of the public
school money. A grist mill is also needed
in the Valley. The fanners are obliged at
present to take their grain 3d miles to get it
ground. There are about twelve hundred
acres in cultivation, mostly corn, barley and
oats, whereas if there was a mill there would
probably be as much more in wheat.
The average yield per acre is 1,700 lbs.
The late storms have raised the river until it
is almost impassable.
Irish and sweet potatoes yield abundantly
here and all other kinds or ordinary vegeta
bles grow well, especially watermelons and
squashes which attain to an enormous size,
and are of excellent flavor.
The farms are all irrigated by ditches
along which black willow and cottonwood
poles are driven two feet apart, these take
root and soon form a live fence. February-
is the best time to plant these fences.
Grazing and stock-raising is carried on
ottite extensively and several farmars arc en
gaged in raising fruit and ornamental trees,
shrubbery, etc. Flour is selling at ?14 per
hundred, sugar, 30 to 60 , beans 8, butter $1.
eggs, $1. corn 4cts. barley Gets, and scarce,
potatoes Sets., etc.
There :irc two stores in the Valley, the
Postradcrs, C. P. Head & Co., and another
located above the military reservation.
Carpenters get from G. to $7, per day and
board themselves. There is not much me
chanical work doing and there is but little
dr-mand for common labor, a few men could
find work on ranches at from $35. to 40
There is game of all descriptions in the
foot hills, deer in the mountains and val

A BRUCE IN THK SENATE.
The-Colored Senator frum MKhUkIjipI Settlrnr
Some of 'White Brethren an Example of
PntriotUm uiul Cotist-itency.
Washington, Fub. 10. The sensation of
to-day was the sjeeeh of the cnlored Sena
tor from Mississippi, the Hon. B. K. Bruce,
in executive session, on ihe confirmation of
B. C. Billings. The nomination of Bilhngs
to be United State District Judge of Loui
siana, vice Durell, who resigned to escape
impeachment was, of course, referred to the
Judiciary Committee, of which Senator Ed
munds of Vermont was Chairman. Now it
haunens that Edmunds has been of the Re
publican Senators the bitterest opponent of
the admission of I'mchback to a seat in the
Senate as a Senator from Louisiana. This
opposition Mr. Edmunds based upon purely
legal grounds, maintainining that there was
no legal Legislature to elect Pinchback;
that the proceedings by which a Republican
majority was secured in that body were ille
gal. Notwithstanding all this, he reported
Billings' nomination favorably to the Sen
ate, and advocated his confirmation. This
he did, knowing that Billings was the man
who drew the celebrated midnight order for
Durell, by which the regular Ilcturuing
Board w.as restrained, and on which all the
monstrous fabric of fraud and infamy in
Louisiana was built up.
Mr. Bruce was not disposed to give his
consent to this sort of double dealing. He
had given an earnest of his desire to prevent
a similar reign of terror in Mississippi by
opposing Ames and his clique in their
efforts to control the election with Federal
bayonets. He still holds that peace and
good order in the South are to be secured
only by the non-interferenre with State
affairs by the Administration at Washington,
and from this standpoint he optKiscd Bil
lings' confirmation to-day in executive ses
sion. Bruce is a fluent speaker, and a very
effctivc one. He went for Mr. Edmunds
without gloves, and handled him mercilessly.,
He declared that he came here as the repre
sentative of all the people of Mississippi,
white as well as black, and he was deeply
concerned for their welfare, which could
only besccured by the restoration of order
and the inauguration ot a teelmg ot good
will between the blacks and whites. This
could only be brought about by the people
themselves, and he wanted them to be let
alone. If they were left alone and strife
was not stirred up bv Federal intefcrencc all
difficulties would soon be settled, and the
blacks and whites would live together in
perfect harmony Their interests were
identical. His fortunes were cast with
them. All his interests were in Mississippi,
and he wanted peace and prosperity re
stored to the borders, and to accomplish
this obiect he was not only willing to make
great personal sacrifices, but lie would sink
all party considerations.
His state and his people were allecteu oy
the condition of affairs in Lousiana, as were
the people of anv Southern State. If there
was ti new rcitrn 01 terror inaugurated in
Louisiana it put off indefinitely the era of
peace and good will in the South. To send
timings mere as a uuucu oiaie.s ouuge vwts
to cause turmoil and contusion. Hillings
w:ts rccognizad as the real author of all the
wrongs that had been heaped upon the peo
ple of that State, and he (Bruce) could never
consent to his confirmation. The copartner
ship was well known Durell, the Judge;
Norton, the universal receiver 111 bankrupt
cy, and Billings, tho attorney of Norton, and
the fidus Achat us of the Judge. Jim Casey
md Marshal Packard were the blowers and
strikers lor the combination, and reaped
their reward also. It was simply a question
of brother-in-law, or some other member of
the royal family being prodded for. He
(Mr. Bruce) did'not believe in sacrificing the
interests of a great State, and perpetuating
confusion, turmoil, and bloodshed for the
benefit of a brother-in-Jawor any other rela
tive of the President. If he couldn't have
the friendship of the powers that be without
surrendering his manhood, he didn't want it.
The scene that iollowed the delivery 01
the bold and fearless arraignment of the Ad
ministration by the colored Senator was
indescribable. He was no respector of per
sons, but went for Edmonds and gave him
1 merciless castigation. .dmunds attempt
ed to bring him down with his awful pres
ence, but Bruce was equal to the occasion,
and gave Edmunds a Roland for his Oliver
every time. Such a scene has not occurred
in the Senate Chamber within the recollec
tion of the oldot member. Edmonds and
his friends are furious, and declare their
intention of bringing the impudent neOTo to
terms, but Bruce takes it quietly, and says
there is more to come. I lie President is
also furious, and so arc the Casey-Packard
crowd from New Orleans. They say the
nigger shall have no patronage, and shall
suffer for it, but Bruce says he don't care a
fitr for the patronage. He came here to
serve his people, the whole of them, and not
to distribute offices among a lew.

Extracts from a letter from R. 31. Fryer
to the Mining and Scientific Press of March
"Editors Press:" I feel in duty bound
to respond to some of the receut attacks upon
the Fryer process, thought is better to avoid,
generally, any contest with persons not gov
erned by gentlemanly principles, especially
if such 'persons have little or no kuowledgc
ol the subject they attempt to discuss.
Rossitcr W. Raymond, author of the arti
cles in regard to this process which have
been so generally quoted here and elsewhere,
is as fair a sample of this class of persons as
I never had the misfortune to meet while in-
offeusively progressing with a mechanical or
In the article iu the Mining and Eugineer
iug Journal of January loth, he shows the
qualities of an unfair pugilist who strikes
an unguarded person and then challenges
him to tight.
Mr. Raymond says: "Processes heralded
with glowing but myterious announcements,
as revolutionizing the art of metallurgy, arc
usually swindles. Mr. Fryer's enterprise
having been unfortunately attended with
some of these features, we took pains to say
that we did not rank it in that class." For
this I am thankful, and regret that Mr. Ray
mond had not given me notice before pub
lishing his first criticism. I would nave
been as open with him 011 the subject as
with any gentleman here who has been taken
into my confidence, Then, if he had chosen
to condemn the procees, we would at least
have been evenly balanced as regards knowl
edge thereof. But returning to the above
quotation, I would inform Mr. Raymond
that the publicity given to the Fryer process
is due to the press itself, and was unsolicited
by me. I appeal ;to every editor in this
State, or in the United States, to answer if 1
have ever asked one of them to publish any
thing in favor of my process until after it
had gained a wonderful newspapernotoricty.
when I wrote some cards over my own signa
ture to correct erroneous descriptions, and
also to quiet an excited people who were
bent upon returning to curtain deserted dis
tricts to regain their fortunes where they had
lost them, because my process had been re
ported capable of working ores once refractor-.
I could easily have ended the swindle
here, had it been such, by a course too ap
parent to mention.
Some of the iron men in San Faahcisco,
even before the issue of any part of my in
vention declared that at an expense of 1,-
."300 they had procured copies of my case,
and that it was a failure.
I know no reason for this miles it is be
cause some of them have suffered through
the fact that a great many mining men weiv
waiting forme to furnishthem with our kind
of apparatus, while on the contrary I have
advised nearly everybody who had property
not to wait for ine;that they could perhaps
build a mill and pay for it before we were
ready to supply them. Again, Mr. Raymond
refers to an assay made at Virginia City of a
piece of bullion produced by our proccs. I
can only answer that I knew not its contents
or character until after the assay was made.
The amount of ore tested w:is 18 pounds as
stated, for the rcaon that the gentleman
who brought the ore had no more of the
same character. But here let it be under
stood that some of our charges amount to
four tons, and the more of them that wc run,
the more regular works the apparatus.
Now, in regard to the purity of the bullion
produced, especially silver, be it enderstood
that Ido not claim " every result above 1)00
fine, though in many cases snob it is.
I have been censured for not issuing my
patents more rapidly, that people may have
a chance to criticise the claims thereof.
There would be no objection to this, were it
not for the rca.son that such patents would
be as apt to fall into the hands of unprinci
pled nonces, who, when finding something
that is not laid down in books, proclaim:
'Wc have found something wrong, or eluc
we don't understand it, therefore there must
be some siciudle about it" Now, as my pat
cnt on this account will be issued as slowly
as possible, let mc entreat everybody to
withhold criticism until after the whole case
is made public.
I wish it to Ik fully understood that I will,
:ts soon as possible, invite, everybody interes
ted in these matters to visit these works
With this assurance. I remain.
Very respectfully yours,
Rout. M. Fryer.

The Republican Review, published at
Albuoueroue. N. 31.. appears to be the
. . 1 .1
organ ol tne jesuites in tucir crusauc
against the public schools in that Territory,
and takes every occasion to put in a lick for
Priestcraft at the expense of the school oy.
tcm. In its issue ol February 20th appears
an item as follows:
''Dunne, cx-Chicf Justice of Arizona,
removed from office for expressing his views.
as a private Catholic citizen, on the School
question, says no reason has been assigned
for his removal bv the U. b. Attorney uen
Now, wc take the liberty of belie vinj
that Judge Dunne has never said any such
thing. On the contrary, if we remember
rightiv, the Judge asked the Attorney Gen
cral to place his removal on the grounds of
his course with reference to Schools, and the
Att'y General assured him very pointedly
that he might so consider it.
The Ex-Judge understands, and so docs
the editor of the Review, precisely why ht
was removed, and the insinuation that there
was any mystery or inclination to dodge the
issue is unfair. The Judge was removed,
as everybody knows, aad a3 the Attorney
General specifically declared, because of his
having opposed, in a public speech in the
legislative hall of the Territory, while occu
pying an exalted position under the Govern-mcnt,-the
fundamental principle upon which
that Government rests.

Letter From rreseott.
Prescott, A. T., Feb. 7, 187C.
Editor News: I have been here about
two months, and I like the place and coun
try very much.
With what I have soon of the mines about
Prescott I am well pleased, but little or no
work has been done ou thctn; there h not
even a silver mill south of Greenwood; the
mills that are here are simply stamps, asd
they run the pulp over copper plates. The
ledges arc all rather small, except the base
mines, and they . are low grade. In thc.
mountains they have quartz, and wood and
water in abundance. This is the largest
town in the Territory, and .1 bcautifal place
it is, being situated on Granite Creek, a rol
ling piece of ground, and is well built..
Over one hundred houses have been built j
this fall and winter, and it has a looicofpcnna-
nency that is not usual to mountain townsJ
Fort Whipple is situated one mile froW
town, which is headquarters for the torritprjvV
This place is headquarters and market for )
every thing north of Tucson. This town con- f
sists of the following: Fifteon stores
four of them as large and fino as mar be
seen anywhere tcu saloons, six billiard ta
bles, two breweries, one printing office, three
butcher shops three saw-mills, three livery
stables, seven faro games, one blue jay, one
chusas, two keno games, seven restaurant
and lunch houses; there is no hotel and woo
to the poor devil who has no blankets: there
are three stage lines two to the railroad, and"
one to San Bernardino direct. Wells' New
3fexico and Arizona Express has just been
started fare to the railroad $50 through in
three days and nights.
isradshaw District is undoubtedly the
richest mining district in the central portion
of the Territory the famous Peck mine is
located there: the rock is very rich, and at
87 feet deep the vein Is seven feet wide, with
a six-inch strcaK that pays' $800 to the ton;
there arc other mines that are very rich, but
arc undeveloped; and the same maybe said
of agriculture, stock raising, mining and
everything else. The country is fast filling
up, and I expect there will be thousands
more come this summer. I am pleased with
the country, as it is much better than I ex
pected to find it. For stock-raising, so far
as I have seen, thi country can't he beat,
and I have seen California and Nevada in
their palmiest days; the only drawback to
it is the lack of water in the grass regions.
There lias been no cold weather yet but
plenty of snow.
I expect to start south tins week to t lor-
ence, on the Gila river, to secure me a good
farm. John O'Dougherty, of Egau Canyon,
in your country, has been here a week, and
leaves for Florence to-day. Johnny Coming
has been prospecting in Peck district, but he
and his partner have concluded to go soutn.
Dick Godfrey is mining about fifty miles
south of here; he came iu for provisions.
George Turner, 01 Cherry Creek, is also here,
and gave ine lots ot White Pine iNetvs.
George Waters, a Hamilton carpenter, is at
work here. Curtis, formerly a stage-driver
lwtween Hamilton and Treasure Hill, and
latterly County Assessor of Lincoln county,
is also here. Col. Head, who built the lute
Pine Water Works, is here, and has one of
the largest stores in the Territory. There are

The above letter written from Prescott
to the White Pine News contains a few facts
and many inaccuracies. In the first place
Prescott isn't the largest town in the Terri
tory; Fort Whipple isn't a mile from town;
there arc no more nor no worse "old bums

towns of itssize elsewhere on the Coast; tho

as it is usual to sec in camps of its size, and
those who have been willing to work, have
all found something to do, thus far, and at
remuneartive prices. With these and per

seems to have a very fair appreciation of the

are various reasonsforconsideringthenose the
natural outlet of the lungs, and hence vari
ous advantages to be derived from breathing
through the nose.
1st. If wc breathe through the nose we
will oc enabled often to detect the presurc of
noxious odors in the air we breathe, and so
be warned of danger in time to prevent it.
2d. The internal nose is studded with
hairs, which in some degree nt least prevent
the ingress of noxious matters with the air
we breathe. Dust is trained out, and it is
coufidentally asserted by persons who have
tested ihe matter, that miasmas arc prevented
from entering the blood if one breathes only
through the nose. SomepersonB have lived
in malarious district, slept on the banks of
malarious rivers, etc., for years, and yet have
escaped all the forms of fever which usually
followed a residence in the country, who hare
ascribed their exemption solely to the set
