Concert at tho Penitentiary.
On Monday evening last, a very enter-
esting entertainment was given at the
Penitentiary by Capt. Ingalls, the Super
intendent, being a concert of vocal and
intrumental music, in which the prison
ers were the performers. They had been
,m training since about last Christmas un
dcr the direction of Madam Ingulls and
J.'S. Bancroft, of ths'Republican." The
concert took place in the wain passage
way of the Prison between the range of
cells on each side. Seats were arranged
at the north end of the passage for the
visitors, who were quite numerous and
among whom were several ladies. At
the south end, a stage had been erected
for the performers,, organ etc. The in
troductory Was made by H. K. White,
Captain of the Guard, in a few appro
priate remarks. Tun came chorus sing
ing with organ accompaniment. Then a
solo upon a concertina accompanied by
a triangle. More chorus singing. Solo
ou the violin by a Mexican. Chorus by
a number of Mexicans. And finally a
duct, Madam Ingalls sustaining the con
tralto. This was the gem of the eve
ning and was encored to repetition. In
fact, the entire perlormance was very
pleasant and interesting. Good voices,
abounded, ani further instruction will
make this leature of prison lifu a relief
and pleasure to a'l concerned. To out
siders it will become attractive, and to tbo
object, (procurement of funds for a Prison
library) will promote a feeling of inter
est iu the cause and the beneficaries,
that has lain dormant too long. Too
much credit cannot be awarded to the
Superintendent, his earnest and accom
plished wife, and all others who took
part in bringing about a condition of
things so meritorious and harmonizing.
The Board of Prison Jommissioners
were present and it was announced from
the stage during the evening that they
contributed, as individuals, thirty dol
lars to the fund.
It is in oontemplation to make these
performances periodical, at which a limi
ted number of persons will be admitted
upon a fee of twenty-five cents each, and
any further voluntary offer to the library
fund. None are restrained, however,

tributions will be gratefully received.

the miners during the going out
of the old year and the coming in of the
new. Several claims have been ro-locat
cd i the Gila City range, tho Posa moun
tain3,the Cabeza Prieta district, the Pinto
and Mohawk ranges, and those who have
failed to keep up assessments are left.
The new district in front of Mohawk, to
the north, is receiving considerable at
tention. There are almost inexbaustiblo
supplies of free milling gold ore, which
assays ail the way from $5 to $100 per
ton; and in order to have an immense

and of the true fissured class.

Your correspondent has been induced to

will wait until the assayor makes his re

Editor Sentinel: I send by Mr.
Douglas some specimens from our mine,
the "May Queen." Wo are now down
about 12 feet. We have two feet of ore
which will assay from 18 to 200.34 ounces
of silver and from 40 to 00 per cent, of
lead. We have several sacks of ore out
and take out from one to four per day,
and have several tons in sight. We have
a cut muting about :10 feet and a solid
vein of galena ore running the whole
length, nearly two feet wide. As we go
down the ore becomes richer.
You can publish this if you see fit. Will
write you again soon and send you more
specimens. . R. W. Masters.
