THE WEEKLY ARJZONAN
MAY 29 1869.
ABRAHAM LYON; of Arizona Cit
our only authorized Agent in Arizona,
The appointment of Judge W. J. Berry, of
Preicott, to be Registrar of the Land Olfict
in Arizona is an indication that that important
office is soon to be established. Surveys havo
already -been completed on the Salt river and
otheri in various parts ot the Territory will
soon be" male, and there is no reason why our
settlers should not speedily bo entitled to per
fect their land and raining ti:Ie in accordance
with the liberal laws of the United States,
Nothing will go further to create confidence
nnd interest in the country. The pioneer' Hires
to know that he is legally and fully in possession
of bis property and until he is satisfied dr. this
point is never easy or content Mr. BuckSlew
was 'made" the Receiver of the Land office some
time since, and in view of what lie has suffered
in the country the appointment was regarded
a just one and will not, we, presume, be dis
turbed bv the new administtntion, although the
sweep of old officials has thus far been very
thorough at (he eact. Judge Berry as a pio
neer irf Arizona, a fnan df more Uiah Usual
ability aiid force of character and one familiar
with "the country and the people, has gbbd
qualifications, for the office of Registrar and
will, we doubt riot, take a pride in the prompt
performance of all its.duties. He will not hold
the place simply for the name of it but will be j

receiving 1,263 votes, against 611 for Rush,
and 1SG for Adams.
The Directory of the 40th. Congress gavo
this sketch of our delegate in that body:
Coles Bashford, of Tucson was born near
Cold Springs, Putnam county,-New York, Jan
uary 21, 1S1G; receive a classical education a'
the Wc3leyan Seminary, now Genesee College,
Lima,- New York; studied, law and was admitted
to practice in 1841; was district attorney of
Wayne county from 1847 to 1S"0, when he re
signed; removed to Oshkoih. Wisconsin, in
1850, and wits a member of the Senate of thn
State in 1S52, 1S5:5, and 1854, resigning inf

Frorri a copy of the Prescot.' Miner we learn
that Tucson is a "very sickly place" and tha
the presiding genius of that trifling sheet, sur
prised at the number of deaths occurring here
ad vises that the. people of. Tucson "should en
deavor to find out the cause of these deaths
and if possible, take measures to step tho
ravages ot the disease.
Well knowing the character of the Miner ve
are not surprised to find itsicolumns crowded
wf h misgtatements frsrardirfr Tucson : but if
it wishes to raise objections' to Pima county
and Us inhabitants its own credit should," we
think, demand that it do to in a manner which
will not so evidently betr'ay its short-sighted
ness and animosity : the report of the Territo
rial treasurer published in the Arizoka.v some
weeks since shows very plainly that the "aiis
erable people of Pima county" are, of all the
nhabitants of Arizona, the least '"jniserable,"
Again; we are happy to inform the Miner that
its solicitude for tlm peopleof Tucson, the "very
sickly place," need not bo entertained longer,
We regret that the spirit df the Miner should
be clouded through the ideal.calamities visited
upon uj, but cannot consider ourselves respon
sible for the n-sults consequent to terrors
pictured by a i.hordered brain. Ilowevcr,
sympathy is swept : if he to whom it is extended
be a sufferer he will appreciate it; and if cx
tended through misconceived opinions it yet
indicates good will but be cautious, dear
Miner () how you extend symprfthy, for the
people of Tucson des, Ue affectation and pity
a natural hypocrite.
That the MiHcr may not be under any mis
take regarding our. intentions in future we will
here sliite that we do not intend to do it tho
honor of noticing everything that it may contain
regarding us apropos, school-boy controversy
and we have long since 'cut acquaintance.'
We would, however, before concluding this ar
ticle, hint the propriety of that motive which
would influence our Prescott contemporary to
cleanse its columns-from the filth and falsehood
of eighteen months and suggest candor and
lioriisty of purpose as the best means of pro
moting its interest? as well as the interests of

It h worthy of notice that in every civilized
country the present system of criminal law is
acknowledged to be a failure. In France, many
of the wisest statesmen arc calling for an en
tire change in the nature' of the punishments
inflicted. In England, Parliament is now con
sidering Iitfv? to" deal more severely with "the
dangerous classes,'' by subjecting criminals to
po'ice restric.Jons witl.pnt trial. And in this
country, and especially in th large cities,
public opinion is becoming erefj-'day moie
