The San Francisco Call, a paper "supposed
to be well posted on Arizona, publishes the
following, which goes to show that they
have not kept themselves posted with re
gard to the resources and capapilities of
this Territory, which has double the amount
of rich productive fanning land that the
State of California has south of San Fran
cisco: "The shortsightedness of the Steamship
Company in retaining high rates for fricgjtt
to Arizona has bceu demonstrated to its
satisfaction. Lust voir the froignt on bar
ley was two and ouc-hslf cents per pound,
while the grain itself was worth but two
cents in tlie city. The people of Arizona
objected to paying fuir and a half cents for
every pound of barley they used, and the
Company was requested to reduce its rates.
It wa believed at the time that grain could
not be successfully cultivated in Arizona,
and the Company refused to reduce. Ari
zona accordingly went to work and sowed
barley ia the Salt River Valley to try the
experiment of raising grain in that country.
Tho result i. that a crop has been produced
which is estimated at lo.000.000 pounds,
and Arizona docs not care for the Steamship
Salt River will probably raise this year
between five and six million pounds of bar
ley (not 15,000,000 pounds, as sUted by the
Call), besides about two million pounds of
wheat, and large fields of sweet-potntocs,
sorghum, sugar-cane, cotton, pumpkins, and
all the varieties of vegetables, together with
vast vineyard?, and orchards that embrace
every variety of fruit raised in southern Cali
fornia. The Salt River Valley has been
farmed successfully for ten years, and now
supports a population, of good, white
American citizens that will aggregate seve
ral thousand souls.
Barley has been raised in years past to
such an'cxtent that it became a drug in the
market, because we had no outlet. However,
consibcrable machinery is coming in and
-with it a large immigration to open up the
richest gold and silver mines in the known
wrorld, which will eventually yield enough
bullion to pay otF our national dobt, ruu the
machinery of our government, lend Europe
enough to pay her indebtedness, buy Mexico
and enrich every Arizonan. Il can no longer
be said that Arizrma has no market or out
let, as the railroad has alruady tapped our
lines, and if needs be, when California has
a failure of crops a. -he is liable to have,
we can supply her with food. Our Salt
"River farmers "have no risks to run their
large flowing river C00 yards wide with an
average depth of two feet of water, is ca
pable of supplying ten times the number it
uow furnishes with water for irrigating pur
poses. The climate of the Salt River Valley
is unsurpassed, its soil unequalcd, and with
such u large supply of water, such as it has,
failure of "crop is out of the question. No
people iu any country arc half so secure and
independent aw are the people of that valley,
and almost the same eau be said of other
large settlements on the Gila and San Pedro

Wc have noticed, recently, in the Xcw
3fcxico papers and those of Colorado, excit
"ing accounts of these mines which are sit
ated 35 miles "West of Fort Stanton, X. 31.,
and 150 miles cast of Albuquerque, ou the
Rio Grande. The Jacarilla mines were Iirst
discovered, seventeen years ago by a 31exi
can, but owing to the scarcity of water but
little was done in tho way of working them,
in fact, miners never tried to separate the
gold Irom tlie earth, only just after rains
when they succeeded in catching water in
holes and artificial tanks, at which times
they had no trouble in procuring from five
dollars to twenty dollars er daj- to the
man. Now Miat dry washing machine are
coming into use quite extensively, the atten
tion of miners is directed to these vast fields
of gold which have been lying dormant for
!M many years, oa account of the great dis
tance they are from water.
About sixty yt-ar. ago, a 3lexican well
known ia New Mexico, for many years a
resident of 3Inwno, by the name of Santi
ago Otero, while herding a band of sheep in
tile vicinity of the Jicariila 3Iountains took
n stroll through them hunting. He finally
wounded a deer and iu trailing up the ani
mal, slipped and fell, at the same time dis
covered souiethiug shining which was scat
tered along a line of quartz in a quantity
that ivas sufiicient to fill a wagon. 3Ir.
Otero iecured several ounces of gold which
he kept and brought into the settlement.
About six months after the occurrence, sup
posing all the time that his gold was bronze,
not knowing anything about gold at that
After a lapse of thirty years 3Ir. Otero be
came acquainted wi.h gold and had his
bronze, as he supjKed, tested, which proved
to be tlie pure substauce (gold) itscl. He
then wont into the Jicariila 3Iountains to
discover the place where he had found gold
in such quantities thirty years before; but
changes had taken place in ttic mountains,
the ledge had become covered over, and dur
ing a ten years' search he was unable to find
the bonanza he had fallen on nnd discovered
when a boy and a sheep herder. That this
rich ledge is in the vicinity of where thc-e
placcrcs now exist there is but little doubt.
The couatry is covered with a dense forest
of pine, mlar, pinyon and oak. The coun
try is rough, iron ore eist in great quan
tities, and Jicariila Mountains have the ap
jicarancc of being rich in gold for a radius
of several miles, and with the improvements
in dry washing we exject to here ere long
of fortunes being extracted.

Chas. A. Franklin, hi a letter to tho
Miner, dated at Florence, May IS, in de
scribing tho Little Colorado and its tributa
The river, for 40 miles from its source,
contain immense quantities of as Rue speck
led trout as ever was seen in any country.
The general course of the river for the iirst
forty miles is about ebt; here it is joined
by tho Xutrioso. The two valleys together
are called, by the resident, "Hound Valley."
lTom tins pomt, the river runs norm a ins
tance of 153 or 40 miles; here is another
large settlement, called St. Johns, or Kl
Radito, containing several thousand acres.
of agricultural laud, nnd millions of acres
of grazing country. From Col. J. C. Hunt's
much, the river runs nearly west for 50
miles, to where it is joined by another
struam Chevalon's Fork. The distance
from the head of the river to tho mouth of
Chcvolons Fork is about 125 miles, follow-
ing tho course of tho stream. The first
tributary is a small stream from the south,
without'auy name. The next it the Nutrioo,
as already mentioned above. The two val-
lovs together aro called "Round Valley,'' and i
contain about 1,000 acres of rich, alluvial danger, where they are supposed to be pro
soil. The valley is surrounded by high, ioncd with plenty to cat, security to life,
basalt mesas, ami m the sides ot their culls
are numerous coves containing rude imple
ments of agriculture, also thousands of
bows and arrows, etc.. etc., that were used
by the former inhabitants of this iirt of
the country. From the mouth of Chevalon's
Fork, the course of the Little Colorado is
northwest, ami coutiuues this direction
uutil it empties into the Grand Colorado
del Poniente. The ue.t tributary below
Chevalon's Fork is the Rio Puerco of the
West, which comes in from the north, and
about 10 miles Mow. The Rio Puerco
heads in the Sierra Madre, near 2s ew I'ort
Wingjite, in the Territory of New Mexico.
Tho "next is Le Roux FoVk. from the north,
and about seven miles below the Rio Puerco.
There s no water iu the Le Roux Fork in
tho drv season, except near the head. The
next is Little Drv Fork, from the south.
The next in order is the
Rig Dry Fork, from
the south. The Rig Dry Fork heads w ithin j
a halt-mile of Touto lia-in, and is Irom JUU j cr such savageness lias yet reached that cle
to COO feet deep. There are mountain j grce 0f de"elopmeut vhieh will admit in
sheep here, and omc of the grandest j another generation, of a material approach
scenery that man ever beheld. The next ; the civilization of the white race, and i.
tributary is called "Cottonwood Fork," I tiwre auv hone that the present generation
from the northeast, and about throe mile
below Rig Dry Fork. From the head of the
Little Colorado to the mouth of Cttonwood
is about 170 miles, and from here to Ute
first falls or cascade is about (ii) miles more.
These falls arc about 110 feet high -tho first
.10. and the second GO feet, with a bench
between of solid rock '20 feet wide. Here
begins the big canyon of the Little Colo
rado. How "Long" and "iShort" got over
these falls without perceiving them, bangs? 11

the niirht when thev were asleep. The ran-
here and gets larger, higher and
turther dow u. I he Little Colo-'
rado, at high water, rushing through thi
canyon, makes a roar equal to that of Nia
gara, and can b. heard at a great distance.
I agree with Moss, that a man must cer
tainly possess, if not the devil himself, the
devil's spirit, to go over these falls which
arc from five to one hundred feet high, and
down through the rocks and boulders, with
the waters rushing, pitching, Iwiliug, and
plunging in e"cry direction at the same
timer ilow any boat could stand such buf
feting is more than I can understand. From
the head of the canyon to the Moqui villa
ges is about 35 miles and arrows tlie Painted
Desert. Here upon this desert are high,
isolated mesas, disconnected from each
other, resembling islands in the Sea, some
of them 400 to 500 feet high, ami jterfectly
level on the top. The formation of these
mesas is a conglomerated cement. I no
ticed, in places on the south side of some of
these niens, where the wind had an unin
terrupted sweep from the San Francisco
mountains, that the loose, white sand had
drifted up against the mesa until it had
reached tho "top, some U00 feet from the
level of the plain.
The above is interesting so far a the Lit
tle Colorado is concerned but docs not apply
' to John 3ros or the Rig Colorado, 3Ir. 3liss'
exploits being entirely through the Grand
Can von of the latter stream. Ed.

with the sale of that mine, and

negotiations were opened U0 days previous,
that universal disaster had overtaken the
stock market; that there had been a shrink
age in values of over two huudreil millions
of dollars, and that his associates in this
negotiation were amongst the heaviest loser,

not taking his proffered forfeit of ."?"J0.(J00.
That he would, in any wav possible, assist
them in whatever negotiation the Company
desired now or hereafter. This ended the
negotiations, and at a subsequent interview
with Mr. llaiguu, the expert, Mr. 11. was

Tho scouts from Camp Vorde and Camp

Since the agent occasionally reports the
nbsence of Indians to the militaay anthoritv,
and request pursuit and punishment, it is
supposed that he does so whenerer lie knows
of their absence, yet, when the scouts go out,
they find a groat many more. The inferenre
is that the absentees are much more numer
ous than tlwre is any knowledge of. Tlie
conclusion follows that theie in a cause, and
that rausc is found in the fact that there is
I n ixussihlc waring in ration which may go

or those who issue them, as the cave may be.
Tlie consequence most seriously affecting
the military service, are the depredation
perictrated" by tlie absentee. The trooi
are exacted to pursue nnd punish the per
iwtrators if they cannot prevent the acts,
but hnvinir no control of tlw Indian?, no
; means of knowinjr when thev leave the re-
l er vat ion, ot tlieir number, or where they
i will strike, the troops are at a great diwnl
! vantage, and whilst tlie greatest possible
' stiecci- 1ms attended their efforts from the
post of Camps Verde and Apache, the re
verse is the case from the past of Grant,
Lowell and Ikiwie.
From some cause the Indians are constant
ly leaving tlie reservations, ami at times com
mitting depredations, and in certain quarter
tlie troop arc lield responsible. We must
lar tlie abuse of failure to" prevent or par
ish the depredators, besides having very ar
duous and thankless labor provided by the
inability or inethcieney. to say nothing of
the reputed criminality of the agents to keep
tlie Indians from leaving their reservations.
Recent depredation in the southern por
tion of the Territory, illustrative of the
IMMiits herein referred to, will be made the
subject of a special communication.
