H is fitting that tho first number of our paper
should do honor to the niomofy of him whoso in
fluential and indefatigablo exertions greatly con
tributed to hasten tho recognition of our Terri
tory. Early and late, in season and out of season,
for several years, did Johu A. Gurley, of Ohio,
labor for tho end which happily was consummated
at the closing session of tho 37th Congress.

and ihkher he removed in lb38, locating in the
city of Cincinnati, where for ft flee years ho ed
ted and published "The Star of the West," a
paper devoted to the interests of the religions
denomination with which be was connected, and
which had a very largo circulation throughout the
South and West.
Overburdened with the carat of editorial life,
he found his health giving way, and retired to a
beautiful farm in the suburbs of Cincinnati, some
twelve years since, from which he was called in
185G by a nomination to Congress, tasdo in a
raoet complimentary manner, while he wss absent
nnen a visit to his native New Ensflauu. He
made a handsome rut! bnt was defeated. In
1853 bo was ngr.iu nominated, and chosen br a
flattering- majority. In 18G0 he wae re-elscled
by an increased vote. Hit efficiency ia public

parties and acknowledged to be one of the cler-

36th Congress, and to him uora thati any one

and satisfactory system apon nrfaich the public

His aim was to develop the great iatsretts of
the country ; to elevate it to the highest saaimit
of & just and durable glory He was proud of the
boundless reeonrcet of tho Wset, .nd was
among the earliest to advocate the organization
of Arizona. So thoroughly had he familiarised
himself with this far off region, and so ardently
urged its claims to protection, that upon the pass-
ago of the organic act, he was, by common con
past, selected to be the first Governor ef the
Territory. He was at once commissioned by the
President nnd confirmed br the Senate. He n
icipated great pleasure in the journey to, and res

While in Washington he frequently complain

SPEECH OF THIS SjRa&SIDBNV.
Tho following are the remarks with which
President Lincoln dedicated the National Cowe-
tery at Gettysburg :
Four score and sevon vexYt ago our fathers
brought forth upon this cont fount a new nation,
conoeivod in liberty, and dedicated to tho propo
sition thst al! men are created eqaal. Stow wt
ere engaged in a great civil war, totting whether
that nation, or any other nation so conceived, and
AO dedicated, can long endure. We art met on
a great battle-field of that war. Wt art met to
aeaicaie & ponton oi it as me nnai resting piaoa
of thoso who here gave their lives that thai aa
tion might lire. It is altogether fitting and
proper that we should do this. But in a forger
sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate,
we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men,
living and d&an who struggled here, have con
secreted it far above our power to add" or de
tract. The world will little note nor long ra-
member what we say here, but it can never
forget w hat thj dm here. It it for as, tse liTiiig,
rather to be dedicated heft to the refinished
work that they have thus so far so nobly carried
on. It i rather fur ns to be iiere dedicated to
the great task remaining before us, that from
these honored dead we take increased devotion
to that cause for which they here gave the last
full measure of devotion ; that we here hirttiy
resolve that the dead shall not have died in vain ;
hat the nation shall, noder Got, have a ntw birth
of freedom, and thatgortrnmetttof the iwoplt.by
the people, and for the ptopto, shall not ptri&o
front the earth.

GROWTH l?f WAR-TIMIE.
The President, in bis proclamation for a Na
tional Thanksgiving, enumerates ninong our nt-
lonal blessings the fact that " JopuIutioa has
steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste
hat has been made in the camp, the siege, and
he battle-field," and that " the country rejoices
m-the consciousness of augmented strength and
vigor." J bis growth in numbers springs, firstly,
rom the nuturul increase in tho existing populn
tton of tho country, and secondly, from immigra
t:on. Few people have expected that the latter
source of national strength would be maintained
in a period of civil war. It 'seemed preposter
ous that hundreds of thousands of people would
leave their native lund, where they enjoyed peace
and "strong governments," to come to aland
resounding with the clash of arms, and reeling
under the mightiest struggle ever witnessed by
Gods or men. The European Press, always so
wise when not perfectly foolish, predicted that
in esent ot war, the immigration, to which wo
owed in part our wonderful growth, would dry
up. Jiut we have been mistaken as well as they
