Tbc sole and only ground set up iu the
piaintm s complaint lor the lnutuction.
that the Ninth Legislative Assembly of this
Territory was an illegal body and that all its
acts arc totally void, and therefore the acts
of the Secretary under them would be
great public wrong, all these allegations are
conclusions of law, not statements of facts.
The bill in its general form is well drawn
It is ctcar, consecutive and precise m its
statements. Tttc defects arc in its substance
the subject matter. It is based on the le
gal proposition that all the arts of the last
Legislature arc totally void. This in reality
is only a legal opinion. The plaintiff swears
that these acts are void. The defendant dc
nies tins m smiistaiicc. 1 1 these acts arc
void, or should be declared void bv compe
tent authority, the results would be tar
reaching and most disastrous. If void, these
acts should not be published or promulgated
If these act arc void the terms of Court
created by them, and some of which have
been held bv mv associates and myself, in
Jlohave. MaricojKi and Pinal counties, arc of
no binding torce or authority, and all the af
fairs of this great Territory would be thrown
iuto the most dreadful disorder, lawlessness
. and confusiou.
Before any tribunal could sustain a pro
position leadiug to such disastrous results, it
should not only hac the power but the case
and the law should be absolutely clear and
free from anv particle of doubt. Courts
There is ono power that can nullify and
set aile the acts of the Legislative Assem
bly of the Territory, and one only, and that
is the legislative branch of the Government.
The last Legislature was a recognized acting
at jaci legislative body and its acts must be
recognized not oulv bv tho Courts of this
Territory, but bv all the Courts of the coun
try till legally nullified, and we cannot le
gally presume or with reason assumo that
Congress will declare all the acts of a Ter
ritorial Legislative Assembly void.
The Injunction heretofore grautcd on the
21st day ol April, lbi , on the complaint m
this cause having nothing to support if,
must be and isdissolved. and it is so ordered.

In tho annual report just made by the
Board of Indian Commissioners, an elabor
ate statement in general and in detail is pre
sented, showing by statistics the advance
made in the eight years of the present policy.
Of the SCG.00O Indians in the United State's,
Alaska not included, 10-1.S1S now wear citi

by Indians hac increased from 7,470 to .".".
IIS, of which 1,702 were built during the
last year. Schools have increased during the
same period from 11 to 344, and teachers
from I 3-1 to 487. The number of scholars
was then 4,71ST now they are 11,338. There
are 1ST churches on Indian reservations and
27,215 Indians arc church members. The
area of land cultivated in 1SCS was .11,207,
in 1S70, olSllM. The report concludes witli
",? Mowing recommendations :
the Government with the terms of existing
treaties with all the Indians.

life and property.

years of age.
. Sth. Issue of supplies to be made to tho
heads of families.
9th. Increase of salaries of Indian agents.

settlers on the frontier, who know all about
Indians, as very funny. They understand
just how they wear citizens' dress; thcyj

As much comment has recently been made
by citizens of Preseott, and olsow here, in
regard to the lato stage roberry, near AVick
enburg, we have intervicwo.l IT. S. Marshal
Standefer on the matter, and elicited from
him the following facts, which nro substan
tially as follows:
Owing to the numerous robberies of our
stages, Special Agent Alexander, of the P.
O. Department, conceived the very excellent
idea of employing a man who would fcrrit
out the highwaymen, in fact, go in with
them, ami then givo information which
would iiuure their arrest. This was done
with John Mantle who, a short time since,
gave information that led to the arrest of
the stage robbers who robbed the stage near
Indian WelN. and the recovery of tho
money. After having been used a a detec
tive in California, he was sent to Arizona
for the Mime purjwsc. He came here, hunt
ed up Johnson and Sutton, alias IJniphy, wont
in with them and robbed tho stage ner
j Whkcnburg, and delivered the bullion into
the hand ot the stage agent, at hhrnniKTsr,
at the same time giving Agent Kvmw infor
mation which led to their arrest, of which
our renders know. That this man Mantle
actfd entirely in good faith iu the recent
robbery near Wickcnburg, the Marshitl U

that he did not, on account of tho money
delivered over, which leaves quite a discrep

Man tic was here for the purport of trying
to rind out tho highwayiucti who infested
this section of our Territory, we have no
doubt, and that they should try and assist in
making tho discoveries is pertetely natural
and right. Marshal Standefer arrested John
Mantle, took him to the Yuma prison, en
tered a complaint against him as a highway
man and he is hold to answer at th next
term of t.raud Jury for the Second Judicial

Ono hundred feet from .McMorris, the Mc
Dowell Company have a shaft on their first
extension, the ore from which shows well.
John Olvany owns the second extension.
Specimens from Morris's lead look ex
tremely rich, as does one from the Chilion
Bros.' placer claim, where they arc taking
out "big money." The Richmond Basin
Mining Company own five leads, and have
set up smelting works eight miles from the
Basin, at tho WheatJiclds. They havo com
pleted their ditch, aud Supt. Gaetncr is now
ready for ore. The Chilson Bros, own a 14
foot'vein of lead, carrying much silver,
which they think will furnish all necossary
llux. Mr. Van Arun.ialejalso, hrs a'smelter
hore at the Wheatields, and it is rcjvortcd
that a 24-stamp mill is now on the way
from San Francisco, for which the land and
water right have alread been purchased.
With these, and othrr mills tlmt will come
as they are demanded, and with the new
road, which our Commissioners still pro
pose to build, via McDowell and Reno, not
withstanding the protest oi citixens, this
section of our country will be ablo to do
what they have long wanted to accompli,
i. e. bid farewell to the "gouging" mills of
the Globe district, and transact all their
busiuess iu our direction.
