from the Prescott Miner of the
3d ult, wo clip the following:
The Military. General
Crook's little army has now com-
menced the work before it in good
! earnest. The General, accompan
J ied by his aids, Lieutenants Ross
' and Bourke, and a small escort of
: cavalrymen, started on horseback,
Monday last, for camps Verde,
Apache and other posts, with the
view, we believe, of organizing
and sending out scouts.
Captains" Mason, Adams and
Montgomery, with their com
nanies and some friendly Piute
! Indians are scouting for Apaches
iu the mountains nortn of Prescott.
A. pack-train, for the cavalry
company at Camp Date. Creek, was
recently sent down, arid said com
pany is now iu the field.
Indeed, every cavalrymen that
can be spared from every post in
the Territory, will be given a
chance to share in the glory of
subduing bands of Indians that
have defied Spain, Mexico and
the United States, and we do
most sincerely hope that no more
obstacles will be placed before Gen.
Crook and his forces, while they
are out., fighting and suffering for
the good cause.
That the General means to con
quer; that lie intends to inspire
h is troop with a conquering spirit,
will be readily seen by the follow
ing General Order, issued from
Headquarter, on the ISth inst:
With a view to a proper recog
nition, commanding officers of de
tacth ments operating against hos
tile Indians will take speceal care
to report the conduct of 'enlisted
men, who, by acts of individual
daring in action, or other special
and conspicuous service, are eng
titled to commendation and re
ward. No recommendation will be
made without careful investiga
tion into all the facts, which will
ully set forth in the report.
By command of Brevet Mai.

A fire. Between 10 and il
o'clock, on the night of Wednes
day last, a fire was observed on
the ranch of the widow Koch,
near Prescott, and, on going over
there, Sheriff Beh am and Deputy
Sheriff L. B. St. James and other
persons found the out-house in
flames, and set to work to save
what they could. The employes
on the place, were found fast asleep
in the dwelling house. The grain
was saved; a calf and hog were
burre 1 up.
Some people think that the fire
was started by some fiend, others,
that is was accidental.
Death of Robert Bell. Ro
bert Bell, a pioner citizen of this
county, departed this life, at Bea
ver Creek settlement, on the
morning of Thursday, the 14th
inst. The disease which carried
him off is said to have been pneu
monia. Pie was a good citizen and true
Court Matters. The Grand
Jury for Yavapai county, after
finishing its work in less than
three days, brought in a report of
which the following is a synopsis:
Found four true bills; two for
felony and two for misdemeanor.
Ignored one bill. The books of
the County Recorder and County
Treasurer were examined and
found correct. . The jail was also
examined and found all right.
They recommended that steps
be taken towards making a safe
place for the keeping of County
From the Tucson Citizen of the
30th ult, we learn that at Camp
Grant an Indian killed a Mexican
cook near the butcher's (contrac
tor's) quarters, on the 22d. It
seems the Indian wanted to sit by
the cook stove; tnat the cook ob
jected and undertook to lead him
a way; that upon this the humble
savage picked up an axe, and
with it brained the cook. The
murderer fled after the commis
sion of the deed, and Lieut. Bab
cock, Fifth Cavalty, with some
men and four Indian guides, start
ed in pursuit of the murderer and
his friends, who seem to stand by
still in progress.'
Agent jeiieras is reported as
trying to get three hundred more
Indians on the Chiricahua Reser
varion with his highness Cachise,
who so far has deported himself
with distinguished propriety, ac
cording to all reports. Wo pre
sume Cachise is resolved to never
cro on the war-path again, but
there is something in the genial
sun-shine of the Spring months
which usually overcomes his good
resolve, and he is not responsible
for climatic operations. Then as
an ofiVet, the climate, grub, cloth
ing, etc., induce him to leave the-war-path
for nearly half the y-etff;
but this time may the pacific in
fluences prevail forever.
