A COMING ENTERPRISE.
Perhaps the most important suggestion everi
made, with the view of forwarding the agri
cultural interests of this '.Territory, was the
project of siukiuf artesian wells, and of thus
watering the vast plains which lie too derated
to admit of the possibility of irrigation from
streams, as suggested by Governor McCormick
in his message to the Fifth Legislature.
It Would be quite superfluous to enumerate
here the many advantages which must neces
sarily follow this system of irrigation, as the
cotmnonost observer has but to view the im
mense surface of country, which during the July
rains clothes itself with the most luxuriant
'vegetation, before being satisfied as to the
result. It is not more man a just representa
tion if we assert that the richest lands in the
Territory arc at' present lying waste because
the locations of streams do not admit of
the possibility of conveying water over the
surface, by means of aqueducts, and at a very
moderate eXpens.? ; while, on the other hand,
cold, bottom lauds, over which water may b"
cheaply conveyed, require the most skilful
manngement to produce crops which may be
considered even a fair return.
It is about time that the people who have
concluded to settle down and live by cultivating
the soil in thin Territory were aroused to study
their own interests at the same time that thty
mav give the country a fair trial, The bottom
lands, so far as it is prudent oralvisablc for
the pioneer to em roach upon ths dominion of
the Apache, are all settled, while land most
desirably located at the very suburbs of this
town and bearing upon its surface evidence
of its fertility, if water were to be had, is still

watered only twice a year by the February
and July rains produces crops of hay that
will yield several hundred tons to every square
mile; which is proof ample of what this land
could bo made to vield if water could be had
at all times. Now, there is but one manner
in which such supply of water maybe procure J
and iliat is through the system of artesian
wells, as recommended. We are almost con
viuced thatthere arc few, if any, who will not
mlmit. nr flint" as their belief, that the lands
above alluded to, may bo cultivated and mad-
to vield abundantly by this system. 1 bus tar
the people have been restrained from engaging
in the enterpiise because of the enormous ex
pense which the boring of an artesian well is
said to incur ; yet'ti all probability the expense
would not be greater than would be the cost ol
nroDerlv ditchinjr a counlo hundred acres of
i i j w
bottom laud, and then, this upland country, so
' irrigated will, if its present luxuriance under
so manv disadvantages constitute a fit cri
terion, yield crops which will surpass anything
vet known of agriculture m Arizona.
People have hitherto been satisfied with the
products of land evidently inferior to that upon
which grows the mezquet audironwood; but the
mistake will be seen in time, It is evident
that water, constant and abundant, is all that
is required, therefore artesian wells must be a

Cumru of the Pacific Coast : The awfn
calamity at the Avondale mine, Pennsylvania,
where so many of our countrymen have Iot
their lives, and where so many of our country
women and their children ware made widows
aud orphans, has senta thrill of horror through
every heart in the land. They have our deep
est and most profound sympathy but that will
either feed nor clothe them. Therefore, in
behalf of the bereave J mothers and their or
phans, this appeal is made to you, Welshmen
of the Pacific coast, to express your sympathy
in the donation of material aid, and that
speedily, while the incidents of the terrible
catastrophe are fresh in your minds, hfty
cents from every Welshman on the Pacific
slope would amount to thousands of dollars.
Let us on this sad occasion give another and
a substantial proof of our well-known charity.
Any subscription can be sent by the 7th of
October to Professor Thomas Price or Natha
niel L. Jehu, of this city, or to the under
signed. In behalf of the sufferers by this dire cala
mity, I ask the journals on this coast to copy
