C a mi i, upsjcess. Last Wed n cb
day night, as Lord Williams' train
was leaving town with a large
freight, one of the wagons Was
run into a mud hole and tht:rc
capsized, scattering goods in all
directions. The day- following,laIl
the available Mexican women tlat
could be found about toAvn was em
ployed in washing and cleaning
calicoes, silks, laces, jeans, and

Private School-. We are
pleased to be . able to announce to
our resident readers that Miss
Bishop has been induced to open
a private school for children,
which, she did last; Monday with
more than ordinary success. Miss
Bishop is an excellent teach er,and
parents haviug children fit for
school should take advantage of
this rare opportunity.
jXCrf.asixg. The rations "to
the Indians, at Fort Yuma, has
materially increased since last
month. On Monday and Tuesday
last, eighteen camps were fur
nished with seven pounds of flour
to each man, woman and child,
instead of two pounds for the
month of Ma v.
For the tlrst time in seven
mouths, we are informed, there
itre no officers at Fort Yuma but
those belonging at that post. How
it is that au officer, receiving only
a Uaotiiti's pty, can support a i
nmily and entertain army bum
mers nil the year round, is what
we can1? comprehend.
Arrival of Capitan "Sun" and his
Capitan "Sun," of the Cocopah
tribe of Indians, arrived in town
last Monday, bringing with him
a young Indian, an Ap?.che-Coco-pah,
whom he supposed to have
been connected with the murder
of John H. Whitney. Clarence
Gray, Esq., District Attorney, was
notified of the presence of Capitan
"Sun" and his mission. The
Territorial Courts having nojuris
diction in the premises, the Dist.
Atty. made arrangements with
Capt. MacGowan, commanding
Fort Yuma.to take the party into
custody. Upon examination, it
turned out,orwas made to appear,
that the prisoner was not the mur
derer of Whitney, but a brother of
the murderer, and the object of
Captitan "Sun" in arresting him
was in obedience to some tribal law
which dictates that "it the real
perpetrator of a crime cannot bo
found, his next kin shall suffer the
penalty of his crime." Capt. Mac
Gowan and the District Attornev,
not thinking this in consonance
with the more humane laws of our
country, refused to take measures
to 'impose on the party in custody
the penalty that our law pre
scribes. The part', however, is
still held in custody at Fort Yuma,
there to await further developments.

The levee put on the Gila river
bank, to prevent the water from
overflowing that portion of town
near the river mentioned, gave
way to tke immense volume of
waterbearing upon it yesterday
afternoon. The excitement was
intense. People rushing toand
fro; wagons, carts, and other ve
hicles, running up and down, car
rying dirt to protect buildings,
moving families, etc., made the
scene quite a lively one. There
are several new buildings in the
neighborhood of Gila and Second
streets which, as necessary pre-
cautions were not taken in season,
will be liable to go with the water.
Tke store of Noisen & Co. the
flag store will not stand this
flood, in our opinion; the water
has already soaked through into
the cellar. This morning, Gila
street, and all that portion of town
known asthellineon, as far up as
Second street, is seperated from
the main town by a sheet of water
nearly 40 feet wide, and both the
Gila and Colorado rivers are rising
fast, and are not likely to .stop for
some time. This overflow, it is
predicted by "the knowing ones,"
will by far exceed any heretofore
California port wine at Baker's.
