The boys at tho Post were paid off on
Tuesday and have had a lively time get
ting rid of their money over since. Whether
any of them have been "rolled" or not we

A letter dated about the 10th of this month
from J. G. Dudley, to Fred Williams, says

Ituss Carter, a mining Superintendent, and

tho brain, atSilver City, in that Territory, on
the 10th of July. Man v, now residonts of

oo pained to hear of his death. Ho was only
34 years of age, a native of Dayton, Ohio,

Prescott we had but one rain during the month
of July that could be called a rain, and that
lasted less than an hour, whereas last year
rained almost each alternate day through
out tho months of July and August. At Wil
liamson Valley they had a fine shower last
Friday night that has given the farmers great
encouragement, and on Lower Agua Fria the
crop are not suffering, but in most other lo
calities wo hear that unless it rains within a
very few days the crops will be very short.

Secoxd Boston Party. The second party
of Boston colonists, consisting of 47 men, 7
wagons, 20 mules and two horses, arrived
here, on Wednesday, from San Francisco
Mountain where they had gone with the ex
pectation of finding the first party, of fifty,
comfortably housed and busy withthecrops,
but in stead they neither found men, crop,
nor land suitable for their purpose, and, like
their predecessors, kept on into Prescott,
where they seem to be at a loss- to know just
what to do. The owners of the teams con
stitute the Company who undertook to bring
the Colony to Arizona, under a misappre
hension of the character of the country, hav
ing received their information, like the bal
ance of the Colonists, from one Judge Cot
zens who represented the country well
adapted to colozination, and as they all
found the eotmtrary to be tho fact on their
arrival at San Francisco Mountain, those
who had paid their money to be brought
hero concluded that it would only be fair
for tho Company to take them baok to the
end of tho railroad, or on into California.
This the Company appear to be unwilling to
do, having as they consider discharged their
part of the work in bringing them here.
If the party really desire to form a Colony
and engago in farming, the better plan, as it
seems to us, would be to look about for a
suitable place rather than give up and start
back, simply because they have been de
ceived as to one particular location. We
havo always considered Arizona, as a whole,
unfit for colonization, and that individual
enterprise was best suited to it, but we un-
derstJhid there aro valleys large enough, and
unclaimed lands in sufficient bodies to sup
port quite a colony either on Salt ltiver or
the head of the Gila, and if these people aro
particularly anxious to live in communities,
it seems as if a wise thimr for them to do
would be to examine these localities before
deciding their enterprise a failure. They
are nearly all young men of good health and
muscle, and if they decide to give up the
community notion and rely upon individual
effort, there is certainly nothing very dis
couraging in tho fact that San Francisco
Mountain is not a garden of Eden. Thou
sands have come and are coming from Kan
sas and other countries under quite as un
favorable circumstances as those from Bos
ton, and yet theyall seem to find something
to do, and aro not discouraged norsorry that
they come to Arizona.
Mo UK Bulmox. Col. Bigolow and Mr.
Mulvenon brought in from the Turkey
Creek furnace, on Wednesday, 11(5 pounds,
avoirdupois, of refined silver bullion, unas
sayed, but evidently considerably liner than
.900, taken from a portion of the ore from
the Peck tunnel. We saw tho bullion in
two large planchas at Anders fc Itowo's store,
uul although silver is coining down almost
to be reckoned as a base metal, yet it is good
to know that there is plenty of it in the
ground, so that in caso wo get short of cop
per, tin and lead in tho manufacture of
camp-kettles, water-pipe and the like, wo
can count on silver to fall back on. The fur
nace is now making another run on the
