A Rich Goto Mist-Tie "Cooqimgt"
mln, which is sltuote about five miles north
wMt of La Paz, Yuma county, this Territory,
is one of the richest and best developed
minus In Arizona. Its owner, Manuel Havana,
hM spent n great deal of money In having it
thoroughly prospected, and he is now well
satisfied of it richne and permanency. To
jjlve an Idea of the amount of labor that has
Wen perforated on this mine during the last
four Team, it is necessary to itate the fact
that eighteen shafts of from ten to seventy
feet In depth, each, have been sunk upon the
lode, at different jiointa inside the length of
the claim, 1900 feet, and hi alt of those shaft
the iode has been struck, thus proving it to
be a true rein. The width of the rein arer
se,es JrotB 3 to 21 feet; the rock is decom
posed aid it very rkh in free, fine gold. A
mill will soon be erected, to work the ore
frwn this ledge, and wo learn that Mr. Ha

ceive the change made by us this weok in the
' main "and editorial handings of the Mixun,
which, we think, make a decided irnprovc
roeni in the looks of the sheet. The type of
the old main heading was too large, heavy
and "fct-faccd," nnd will bo more at homo in
' the body of a poster than at the head of a
newspaper. The type of the present heading
is yot too "black" to suit our taste, exactly,
but it is the bust wo could do with the ma
terial now on hand. The gingerbread head
ing'Uiat formerly ornamented (?) the edito
rial page, with the vague and indefinite motto,
"The gold of that land is good,"' needed rest,
and wc have placed them in n poiition where
they can have it. The motto was never ours;
it was Selected out of tbe Uible, we believe,
by that "trooly Christian gentleman," Hlch
ard C. McCormick, the former editor of this
paper, for the reason, we suppose, that it,
like himself, was not tied down to any land,
and might be used by him wherever he went.
. Well, he can have it. Newspaper mottoes are
being generally discarded; a paper nqeds
ffomething ele besides immense headings and
'meaningless mottoes to live in the estimation
of tho public. Tloping our readers will be
pleased with the changes made, wc "close un-
! dcr thou headings."
Mb. Sohuvlkr Colfax, Radical Republi
can candidate for the Vice Presidency, was
formerly a Know-Nothing, but since then,
hiT admirers say, lie has learned something,
and, we predict that before noxt Christinas
he will learn that the people know too much
fb everelect him Vice-President. Gen. Grant,
the figure-head on the Radical ship was for
merly a tanner, and he must not be surprised
if the people "tau his bide" for him next No
. TiIn a DKsro.ND.NT Mood. It is said that
( Charles Francis Adams, late U, S, Minister to
the Court of St. James, feels despondent over
" the affairs of our country. ITe expreses re
gret ni the revolutionary attitude of the Re
publican party, and tiiinks that, unless Jef
fereonian principles become once more the
principles of government and people, the Ro
public is lost, and he but adds the weight of
his opinion to tho belief of the purest patriots
in his party.
Tub Democrats of this vicinity ore well
pleased.with tho nomination of Horatio Sey

"Mistxu Won't Pat," is the stereotyped
pbnwc of old Money Tiajp, when some oor
miner oilers him a "bkj iillcroet" in lib valu
able cktlm for a little of his surplus cash to
help develop it. ItWttn't,o1i! Just glance
at the following, and sec what one rich claim,
out of hundreds upon this coast, has paid :
The savage Mining Company hare delared a
dividend of fifteen dollar per share (three hun
dred dnltars per foot). Th company has paid
one million lire hundred and sltty thousand dol
lhr In tltrldenfls hi the past year.
What do you say to that old Brick Block ?
We think we hear you grumble out, "Humph,
that is only one claim; all others are bilks."
But hero you are mistaken, Mr. Graball.
There are many more as rich claim ns the
Snvage iu the States and Territories of the
Pacific, that can readily be made to yield
fully as much ns the Savage. Of cwiree, if
you make a venture you must do so intelli
gently. It will not do to entrust your money
to a gent who knows no more about mining
than Tbad Stevens knows about forgiveness.
If you do you will surely get impeached.
Here in Arizona there are scores of mine
rich enough to iy well, yet for lack of means
to work them, they are useless to us or any
body else, and yet no tnonied man ean lie in
duced to take hold of them. If they were
in Mexico, San Francisco and New York cap
italist would gobble them up. but as they
are in Arizona, nobody carea for them. What
short-sightedness. Wo venture to assert, that
nowhere in the wide world can there bo found
a better paying mine than the Vulture, at
Wickenburg, in this county and Territory,
yet but for the genius and perseverance of its
owners; the practical knowledge, business
qualifications and unflagging energy of its
Superintendents, the lizards would, to-day, be
playing on Its cropping!. Wheuerer Ban
Francisco capitalists turn their attention this
way, purchase and work our mines, then may
we and they look for good times, with lines
of steamship and railroads from San Fran
cisco to this Territory. Arisona is, beyond
doubt, the richest in minerals of ail the Ter
ritories, and cantatas abundance of water,
timber etc., with which to work them. As
stages ads,' run from GtOifnmln into the heart
of the Territorr, we bone, ere lonir, to
oleaginous San "Franciscans come among us, !
take a tteeii at tbe country, and we know
they will be satisfied. Do not allow terror of
our Indians to keep you away. The Apaches
are more terrible in 'Frisco than they are here.
Trae, people get killed here by Apaches, but
lieople also lose their Hvesin and around San
Francisco by being burned to death, falling
into the Hoy through man-traps and rotten
Eastern Milt. -One. great drawback to
tho dovolopment and prosperity of Northern
Arizona is the want of mail communication
with New Mexico, Colorado and tho Atlantic
States, fia tho 35th parallel route, the best
and shortest mail and railroad route across
the continent, and we hope tho Deirtmnt
will, as soon as osfiible, pktco service upon
this route. It is of as much importance to
the people of New Mexico and Colorado that
mail communication should bapeerifiy ojteHod
between the three Territories, as it is to our
people, and we hope they will give us their
aid jn semiring it. The servioo upon the 32d

On the 9th tilt., the conglomerate Legislature
of Louisiana elected to the LT. S. Senate Wm.
Pitt Kellogg, for the long term, and John
Harris, for the short term. Tho despatch
says nothing about tho political complexion
of the elect, but judging from tho composi
tion of tho men who elected them, the new
fangled "Senators" must be as bjaek as the
old pit of . Well, the "world moras;"

A "coi-onEu" woman of Washington city,

Rapicai, Dor-rut nk When an ox-confed-

Radicals pat him on the back, and call him

riotic, nml nil that sort of tiling, but when
honest, bravo ox-confedaratei like Bucknor,
Forest aud others, who are not dastards
enough to belie their manhood and forswear
the principles enunciated by Washington,
Henry, Adams, mid other ancient rebels, the
Radical sorcerers howl "treason" and "rebel"
in their ears in order to scare them into their
ranks. The nincompoop ought to know better.
Grant and hk army did not succeed in scar

them out." Old time Secessionists like .Too
Brown, of Georgia, Brownlovr, of Tennessee,
aul others whom we might name, are the
ones that scare most easily into the Radical
ranks; they wore always disunionbts and are
hail fellows well met with their northern pro
totyjies and oo-workers.

Tho nood feeling among HlmocriiLat rrrir
the nominations of Seymour ami Hlair is un
bounded. Tlia Knn Francisco Htumimr of
the 10th says:
The city last evening was in a blaze of en
thusiasm.' Meeting were held in six or seven
ward, and atrioticspeirhes delivered. Eve
rybody seemed jierfectly satiMled. We have
not yet met a Democrat, no matter what may
have been his jiorsonnl jireferenre, who does
not agree with us in the opinion that the
ticket is as strong as could hare been made.
Neither Seymour nor Blair are ordinary men.
They occupy tho first rank in living Ameri
can politicians and statesmen. The flit,
especially, compares favorably wilh the illus
trious galaxy of party leaders which, thirty
years ago. shone so conspicuously in tho
councils of the Republic. Even his enemies
accord to him great powers of mind, fascina
tion of manners, and purity of chsrafter.
We cannot do better than quote iVom the
UIMnt a Grant organ, and a thorough-going
Radical, on his nomination :
uSrttwnr will l uventahla to averv Dem
ocrat who was resolved to act with tbe party

centrate a heavier party vote than Pendleton,
whose loose financial notions would have re
pelled many in the Atlantic States; or than
Hancock, whose brilliant war record would
have repotted many at tho west and south.

a platform and candidate as hare been pre
