Dear Grj,vnpiAM:, I have bean delayed hr-re
much longer than' 1 anticipated,. owing to the
fact that smne of our pjirty. whose business
leompol.M thgfli to tarry-a few days at, ha Paz,
were detained on the road, at Camp Colorado,
ueaV tho' Indian Reserve, on account cf a'
strong resemblance, detected' by the Captain
of that Poat, between one of our paBfy.and a
military man probably Gen. McDowell or
Gen. Cirleton who, at some prior time, had
been more intimately connected 'with the ser
vibe in Arizrina, and, having none fishing and
hunting on the Lower Agua Frio" (a favorite
pastime among the military in this countrv)
had forgotten to rrtnfn! After three days'
scrutenv, however, of the features of our un
fortunate comrade, and the 'earnest protesta
tions of his' comrades thai he was not a
ruuaway.soldier but the direct opposite, an
lonest miner thp board of officers, which had
asserr bled decided to "let him "slide" 'but to
capture his mule upon the left shoulder of
which they clearly discerned those potent let
ters ''U. S.'" Ilere was more trouble, but,' ah
me! this world .is full of trouble. Summoning
courage and all hands before a Justice in the
neighborhood, and procuring, the services of'a
sciea'4fia barber, the hair of the animal was
shaven from the brand. Instead of-the maic"
mark of'Uncle Sam, a very, correct outHne of
the map of Great Britain appeared, covering, a
arge space on the left shoulder. This served.,
as a-clamper. 1 hey struck their colors, a;id
retired from the contest.. The mule was duly
surrendered, and the party graciously per
mitted to' proceed' on' their journey to White
Pine without further annoyance. r
Some faint idea may be formed of the vast
he ss of the deposits of precious metalri fn
Arizona, when I mention only those ranges of
mountains which' have been prospected to an
excee tingly limiteJ extent, and in'-wnieh
ledges have bcn found assaying all the ' war
fnSm $30 to H.OOO'perto'n and yet, aside from
the Vulture mine in Wickenbur" district,
none have been worked beyond the sinking of
a hhaft of sufficient depth to prove the exist
ence of metal, or, more particularly for the
purpose of holding legal possession. There is
nokind of doubt but that the day is coming
when the yield of precious metah from this
Territory will compare favorably with the
countries to the north, of us,. The thieving,
murdering Apache alone stands in he-?war

,Th.Los Angles'iVcrs publisher the fol
lowjng e-vtract from.. tho Call, in regard- to
Chinese in San Francisco: , . .
. ''Tho cunning of the. 'Chinese U. proverbial,
and from the following particulars, it will be
seen that they are-Hring- illustrations of the
axiom ''where there is n will (here is a wav."
The importation of .Ch' wom-?ii has cam-d
crimes known in the calendar
from simpia assa-ilt to red-handed mnrdi-r,'
anuineena is not yet. It is impossible to
get the truth from the partias, because each
one is bound to tell his story to Suithimseff.
Soon after the arrival of the Japan, come six
weeks or two months ago, quite a number of
females that had been imported by one of the
Jackson street companies, were abducteJ by
other Chinese, and writs ( of habeas corpus
were obtained to regain possession; some of the
women were' hidden away so securely that the
officers have not yet been ableto discover
their whereabouts. The greater portion of
them were taken before Justice Pennie by their
abdrfctors. where t'ioy were married to' per
sons furnished by the abducting party. They
imagined tbh't by this means they would be
able to hold them against the importers
after a time they were taken before Judge
Sawyer, on writs oHiabeas corpus. Here the
developments showed that the women had been
married to parties in China before th'ey sailed
for California, a'nd (hat they, ofter arriving,
had been married to other parties. The Court
endeavored to ipipress upon the" poor women
that thpy weife' iu a landVf liberty; that they
were ft ee -to 'go and come ; that no' one had
tlie slightest right ftr interfere with them, and
finally told them they could go with whom
soever they desired. The result was' that the
women, in every instance Went away under the
protection of their first husbands. Cr the per
sons who had married them in China and lin
ported them, leaving the persons who married
them here wifeless.' It whs thought that this
wouW put 'an end to the squabble for posies-
sio:i, biit those who imaim-d so did not'under-.-tand
Chinese- character. They waited until
the matter had apparently been forgotten, when
they began to move again. A warrant for the
arreit of one of the' women on a charge of
bigamy was procured, and the woman taken
into custody by an officer. He had no sooner
lodged her in prison than some of the friends'
of those who had caused her arrest appeared-'
at' the prison- and -filing a hair 'bond -for'
her appearance,1 she was released' - and w-Vh?
away vilh them.--hey had---ujed thTis m-eHn
to geUb woman into their ofutchee, aad hud
wan was rnnniug ahout in a slue of crt
excitement, endeavoring to fiud his yrile, and
warrants for her recapture and tW arrest 'oV
her abductors have been iasued, ut ihey kafit
not been 3rved, up. to the hour of going to
press. Th'e Chinese would make good poli
ticians. Tlieir shrewdness would eminently
fit them for Convention trickeries, and we re
are not surprised at out Republicans desiring
o clothe them with the elective franchise." '
To those who are willing to credit the fort
going artifice, to the fertility of Chinose bmiii,
that individual will doubtless appear x shining
light ; but we are somewhat sceptical in this
matter. Wo not long since, read an article in
a San Francisco paper, condemning the pnrt
taken by a legal gentleman of that eity in b
half ofsome Chinamen, who were anxiona u
obtain possession of some China women, jast
arrived from the East. We therefore
think that if the origin of the for agoing
shrewdness1', were left bare to the public, hmt
very little tribute .could, in this matter, ha
awarded the shrewdness "of the Oriental. "
The New York Herald of March 10th fh
llslies the details of a pugilistic engagernejtt,
for the petticoat championship of Americk.
The fight came off about six miles from B6s
ton, between Sally CIiBpmau an'd'Mnry Anns
Jones, two abandoned women of thai city.
The affair is one of the most degraded and
pitiful of which we ever read, and is universally
c mdeir.ned, and ju.-tlj so. The Ihrald speaks
of it in the following terms:

than the aflfiir thus chronicled as ocrnrniW in

Terrible Accident, '
On Tuesday evening' an explosion occurred
on tho - steamer Chry.-opolis as she "was-ap-fi
proaching her dock in this city, hr which
fourteen-men were' injured, some of them-;
severely. The Emmett Guards of Sacramento
came down on ths boat to participate in tho
Celebration of St.' Patrick's Day, and were re--ceived
by the McMahon-Gratmdier guards. An
the Chrvsopoli-J was about entering her moor-
iifgs the MiiMahon's fired a salute of one gun J
which Was answered from the boat. Arrange-'
merits wer.e btdng made on the boat to fire a '
second ghtv, and for the purpose a man was''
sent- to bring some powder which lay in - a ten
'pound cahtsters between the mair-room and'l
the kitchen on the lower dr ck. The -man seiit'
for-the pnrpose is said to have been smoking'
a cigar, and while bririging out a canister it1
