Notct nT ii Trip from Viuii.i to Clobo UUtrict.
Yuma C'itv has n population of about
1.500, including Alexirans. It i built be
tween two ranies of IiilU, and the sun's
rays, falling almost jicrpcndiciilar upon it,
make it ono of tiio hottest places known.
The fort is on the opposite side of the river,
anil it is occupiud by a single company ot
I . b. Inlantrv. 1 he shriek ot the locomo
tives can already be hoard at Yuma, anil in
a few days tho Southern Pacific Railroad
will water their locomotives from the Colo
rado river. Under the prospect of being
the terminus of the railroad, Yuma will be
a very lively placo this summer, but tvs tho
railroad moves eastward she will drop to
icr old standard.
TIm next moruino; we resumed our jour
ney across the Maricojio desert, and at
night we take supper at Fillibustcr Camp.
It washere the iamous llenrv Urabb orjjan-
ixed his famous Fililbusteriti'r. Expedition
Ibefore crossing into Mexico entering So-
nora. They were capttuvd and tho enure
party, numbering 130 men, were shot by
order of the Governor of Sonora.
AH night we are .swiftly driven up the
vallev and the following night arrive at
i Oatman Flat, MJ-callcd to commemorate the
sad fate of the Oatman family. The driver
points out to you the very sjKit where the
parents fell, the cliff over which their son
was thrown, but being still alive, succeeded
in escaping, and now livos in Los Angelas;
the spot where the celebrated Olive Oatman
and her sister wero captured and carried in
to captivity. Some kind hearted person has
jjathcred their bones together and carried
them about a ijuarter of a mile to the east
of the blull. About eight miles beyond the
blutf we come to the Painted Rocks, which
rise in the midst of the plain and are cover
ed with hieroglyphics and rude imitations
of reptiles. They aro cut on a kind of rock
called by the Mexicans MtljxiU (bad) rock.
The rocks are evidently of volcanic origin.
Many arc the conjectures as to the origin.
I will only relate the most plausible one,
and that is that the Indians made a great
treaty in years long since gon- by, and in
delibly recorded the solemn compact upon
these rocks. A gentleman from the Smith
sonian Institute took copies of them last
year, but I believe no report lias as yet been
made as to their significance.
Twenty miles from here we leave tho Gila
river aud" cross the Maricopa desert during
the night. Next day we passed through the
Pima villages, inhabited by the agricultural
Indians of Arizona, who annually raise sev
eral millions of pounds of grain. Late in
the afternoon we enter Plorcuccthc prettiest
place that I have yet seen in Arizona, which
claims a population of about 1200, mostly
Mexicans. It is built entirely of one story
adobe buildings, and ou each side of the
streets babble little streams of water, which
keeps the cottonwood trees planted upon
their brink ever green. The valley above
and below is rudely fanned by Mexicans
and whites, hut they display very little en
terprise, and are fully satisfied in scratching
the ground with a forked stick, planting
soiuj corn, and then lay idle until it ripens.
The valley is very easily irrigated from the
Gila river, and this factin conjunction with
the beauty of the climate ami the richness
of the soil, will yet make it one of the finest
fruit-growing regions west of the Rocky
After a day or so rest wo now take the
Silver King mine, where wo arrive at dusk.
This camp is a lively little cluster of frame
buildings, tents and stone huts, with about
200 inhabitants. The camp is situated at
the bead of a canyon surrounded by lofty
peaks on every side.
THE SllA'ER K1XO -MINE
Employs about 10 men, and the Northern
King and Silver King South employ 20 men.
This Silver King Mine was discovered in
rather a peculiar manner, affording us an
other proof that it is better to be bom lucky
than rich. Pour men. by name Long, Ma
son, Copeland and Reagon, wcro packing
ore from Globe City to Florence and while
endeavoring to capture a refractory mule,
stumbled upon this silver deposit, and are
now all wcaltlu men. The richness of this
ore is something wonderful. Their first-class
ore averages from $7,000 to $20,000 per ton,
and their sccond-clsss from $2,000 to $5,000
per ton. The ore is principally of an anti
monious combination; although metallic
silver, chloride of silver, glenite, iodide of
silver sulphurcts aro found in their shafts.
They aro down about 200 feet in their in
clino shaft, and already have an immense
amount of ore iu sight. At Pickett Post,
about six miles below the mine, they have
commenced the erection of Concentration
Works, and rumor says they have a mill en
route for the Northern King, that is down
about 00 feet, and the Silver King South,
about DO feet; both aro now working in
pyrites of iron and quartzite. Neither of
these mines have as yet struck any mineral.
Mounting a mule, a lonely ride of about
30 milos await us, and as tho trail is so
rough and steep we do not arrive thereuntil
lato in the oveuhig.
GJobo City, the principal place in Globe
mining district, has r nhiftiiig population of
about 200. Everything is terribly dull
hero, owing to t!m lack of capital to dovclop
There are two stamp mills here, one two
tftatnp and the other fire stamp; but their re
turns linvt) been so iinsatistactory that tho
miner have no confidence iu them and will
not famish them with rock.
Mr. ICunueday has a suneltor here, but ns
load is too hifjh, it makes that wny of work
ing so expensive. The ore of this district
contains in large quantities, iron, copper
"glance," antimony and sulphur, and most
assuredly require roasting.
There is very little free milling ore found
here. Mcsars.Townsend, Jorrold and othors
of Carriboo, R. C, have settled bore anil sent
on to San Francisco for a complete ten
stamp mill with a "mechanical roaeter."
Meni. J. 1). AYilaon & Co. aro also having
a mill built, with a capacity of twenty tons
jver diem, to erect in this district.
As soon as these mills are erected and in
working order, tlir miners will commonce
working their claims, and as they can take
their own ore and hare it successfully worked
thor can thus inak cxpom-os whilo devcplo-
ing their mines.

and over an extensive prairie. On the one
side, the deer are lMinuding over the native
lawn, while on the other lies a prairie dog

fatality attending the Mormon nnd the
prairie dog, that they always settle on the

Editor Miner: I am vain enough to
fancy that some of your readers may have
sutliciout curiosity at least to wonder what
has become of me, and I write to answer
any possible inquiry on that point. Know
then, that I am iu the ,lCity of Roses;''
rightly named surely; for a greater profu
sion of (lowers it htu never been my prive
legc to witness, than thatwhich'almost com
pletely smothers this bountiful City of Santa
Rosa. Here, for the first time in my ram
bles, I find the people cheerful in the pros
pect of abundant crops. All along the line
of tavel in thi3 (Sonoma) county are indeed
ficltls of "waving grain," while a majority of
the State is little bcttcr than a desert waste.
I eanic here yesterday morning from Oak
land, in answer to an invitation to witness
the Commencement Exercises of Christian
College, in which a young lady, cousin of
mine, this day graduated and received the
tlegree of "Mistress of Arts." It fell to her
lot to deliver the introductory address in
the graduating ceremonies, ami hur Thesis,
"Ever remembered," was recoived with
great applause and a perfect shower of bou
quets. You will perceive, that I am some
what proud of my pretty cousin, and if you
knew her you could not blame me for com
ing a cousining to Santa Rosa.
In addition to my relatives, I find a host
of old friends here, nearly all of whom ex
press themselves as satisfied to remain, be
lieving that there is no better place to go
to, and I must confess that if I could own a
good farm in the vicinity of the town, or a
block of brick buildings on tho plaza, I
should, myself, be tempted to offer my heart
and hand to some worthy old maid, or
widow without encumbrance, with a view
to coaso my wandcridgs up and down the

A letter received by us from a San Fran
cisco'capitnlist gives a heartrending account
of the state of allairs in that city. Stocks
have gone to nothing. Quicksilver, of which
California produces more than one-half of
that produced yearly in the world, is selling
at ruinous pruvs, and the dry season is dis
couraging. The noivs from Arizona, says
our correspondent, is very favorable, ami
crowds are ready to leave at the letvd in

so talk of organizing a prospecting company,

and wealth, who surely could not help but
be pleased, if not astonished at our mineral

natural resources will amply compensate an

The Silver City (N. M.) Herald comes to
us this week teeming with the doings of this
extraordinary young mau, who, the Herald,
says, "is hardly 23 years old." 'Wo should
judge from the dispatches he gives to the
public that he is much younger than, that;
for to our mind nothing but youtli and in
experience can explain or account for such
doings, lie has interviewed the Herald and
told his grioveance, but the Herald does
not say what it is, except that ''General K;
wrote a lottor to his superiors ia which he
tried by indirection and inference (whatever
that mar be) to create tho impression that
Agent Clum is himself guilty of miscon
duct.'1 The Herald says a copy of this let
ter was promptly forwarded to Mr. Clum by
Commissioner Smith, whereupon Mr. C. sent
the following telegram:
CitAKi, April 2S. Commissioner Smith,
"Washington, D. C. Cannot my charges
against Kautz for criminal inactivity, &c.t
bo investigated 1 After three years' hard ser
vice must I retire under a cloud of base in
sinuations? I plead for privilege to defend
myself and my service.
(Signed) J. P. Cmjm.
On tho 20th Commissioner Smith tele
graphed from "Washington to C. that full
justice would be done him.
Jiow what we make out of all this is that
Mr. Clum wants notoriety he wants to at
tract attention. From the telegram we in
fer that prior to this letter Clum preferred
charges against the Department Commander,
and when a copy of General K.'s letter was
referred to him he considers himself greatly
injured, and wants the charges investigated.
It seems a terrible offence for the Department
Commander to write to his superiors about
Clum, but none for Clum to writo to . the
Commissioner about General K. Wc don't.
however, see much satisfaction in the Com
missioner's rcnlr. "Wc stronglr suspect that
justice is not what Mr. Clum wants; whether
he wants it or not, wc know ot no one who
will object to his having it, unless it is Mr.
If Mr. Clum will go into the papers with
his troubles, why not do it so that the news
paper readers will comprehend them. If
General lv. has written u letter making, an
improper or unjust attack on the routliful
Clum, why not publish it so that the coplc
may know just what it is. If General Kauts

name to which Mr. C. could take exception,
but avc have seen considerable that has ap
peared over 3Ir. C.'s name that wc think the
General would be justified in considering as
highly discourteous and improper.
Clum tails it "criminal inactivity.'' Saf
ford called it lack of energy and inefficiency,
"We would like to know if they refer to the
same, aud if so wc would cite Mr. Clum's
timerity as another evidence of his lack of
years, otherwise he would profit by the ex
perience of Gov. Sallbrd. who was able to
draw the Legislature to his support.
"Wc copy from the Herald another dispatch
in illustration. General Hatch asked Gen
eral Kautz to meet the escort he had fur
nished Agent Chun, at the boundary line,
and relieve it with troops from Arizona. The
commanding officer of Bowie was asked; to
comply with this request, and the following
telegraphic correspondence was. the result:
Camp Bowie, May C When will you
cross the line? I want information for Dept.
Com'r in order to relieve New Mexican es
cort. "Wallace, Capt. Gth Car.
Clum's answer was as follows:
Silver City, N. Mn May 7. For informa
tion of Dept. Comd'r I wish to say that no
escort has been asked for from Arizona, nor
trill any be accepted.
(Signed i J. P. Clum.
"Wc know of nothing that so well estab
lishes the youthfulncss of Mr. Clum; first,
in sending such a dispatch, and second, in
giving it to the papers for publication, lie
does not scorn to have the slightest conscious
ness that there is such n thing as official
courtesy. We strongly suspect that there
must be some painful "truths in the letter of
Geueral Kautz, which has so offended Agent
Clum. We should like to see it in print.
Mr. C. would have been taught a lesson if
the Genoral had exercised his right, and met
the Clum outfit with troops at the Hue, or
dered Goneral Hatch's outfit back to New
Mexico, and then informed the youth ho
could take Iu3 choice Arizona troops, or
none at all,
The pmise extended to General Hatch and
his command is an etfort to create a contrast
that is intended to reflect upon the troops
of this Department, and is meant to imply
want of co-operation on the part of Gen
eral Kautz with Agent Clum. This implica
tion we kuow to le entirely unfounded. "We
are confident that it is due entirely to tho.
prompt action of the troops that AgeutClum
has been able to manage his Agency as well
as he has.
His history in this Territory makes Agent
Clum remind us of the Irishman iu the play,
strutting about in search of some one to
tread on the tail of his coat. The manner
in which he took charge of the "White
Mountain Agency, nearly two years age, at
Camp Apache, was discourteous in the ex
treme, and designed to bring about a colli
sion with the troops at that post.
The Herald concludes that Agent Clum
"certainly has the warm thanks of the peo
ple of Southern New Mexico for his energy
aud efficiency." To this wc say, wait a while.
A week or two ago when it became known
that the "Warm Spring Indians were to come
to San Carlos, we predicted the renegades
would hereafter raid in New Mexico, and al
ready it has commenced. The copy of the
Herald containing so much of the work of
the juvenile Clum gives accounts of a number
of depredations ou the upper Gila, on the
Micmbras aud at Mule Spring. This is on
ly the commencement. "We predict that
both Safford and Clum will receive anything
else but praise, in time for these depredations
will undoubtedly continue until the depre
dators are killed or captured.
