These are ths circumstances under which Ta

Bobbed by two parties by tho one in a bold
and defiant manner, and by the other under
the cloak of government, exacting lawful
tribute from its citizens who, in return, are
supposed to enjoy that security of life' and
property which every government is in doty
bound to maintain throughout every portion of
its doainion. It is needless to tell Arizonsns
tbti the government is false to its pledge ; not
ono month ever passes which doos not give
birth to some Indian outrage, aa if to keep that
fact forever before our eyes. I it surprising
that "the unfortunat inhabitants of Tubac aro
diminishing in umbers and that thsir homes are
going to decny ?
A Wosd to "Exquisites :" A good, orderly
system of eocity is a aomothing very desirable
in overy community. It has a tendancy to
rertrain rough and unbecoming habits; even
the jester must confine himself within certain
limits if he would not he expUd. For imUnce,
you must not stick out your tongue in derision,
wi2k with one ye, or in any other manner
maui'est your bad breeding un'esi at cartain
times; nor will it do to make an overt assertion
of your opinions regarding that lady's affecta
tion or her pitiful presumption and there are
a number of other things which must not be
dono unless you bo prepared to throw down the
gauntUt and set public opinion and your own
obslinacy at loggerheads, and then take aback
seat to watch the contest. But it does notfol
low that an individual, to be respectable, must
adopt ereryair known ir. dunghill circles, from
the strut of the turkey-cock to the sile-waya
march of chanticieer, such a disposition on tie
part of any one is quite sufficient to convince
the traveled spectator that there is . "screw
loose soraewere" iu the machiery of Fuszle's
head. It might thernfore be a wis conclusion
for those who jo strenuously labor to impress
the public with an idta of their own excellence,
to satisfy themselves that a sound and cnltivat
ed mind will no more expect to find brains in
a fop than it will to be presented with a suit
made from the ethereal blue and trimmed with
fragments of the rainbow. They arp only fools
who cannot detect and duly appreciate ar

Section eighteen of an act of congress approved '
Mirch 3, li:4a, provide that contracts for tj,a
transportation of tho mail shall be at, jn cver
caso, to the lewest bidder tendering sufficient
guarantees for faithful performance, without oth
er referenco to tho inodo of transportation than -may
be neeessary to provide for the hii c'lri'f7
certainty, and security of snch transportation "
Under this law, bids that propose to to' transport -the
mail with ''colerity, certainty, and security"
having been le idod to be tl.oonly legal bids aro'
construed a3 providing for the entiro mail, bow
ever large, and whatever may be ths modo of
conveyance necessary to cn.urc its "celerity, cer
tainty, and security;" and no others will be' con
sidered. Except in the case of railroad and steam
boat routes, bids naming any particular mode of
conveyance are invariably rejected.
A modification of a bid in any of its ossontial
terms is tantamount to a new bid and cannot be
received, so a3 to intorfcrc with a regular com
j ctition, after tho last hour set i jr reeeivfti" bids.
.Making a new bid with guarantee and certificate'
is tho only way tj modify a previous bid. '
Postmasters aro to be careful not to certifiy to
the sufficiency of guarantors or sureties without
knowing that they are persons of sufficient respon
sibility ; a disregard of this instruction by " post
masters is a violation . of thoir oath of office,
subjecting thorn to immediate removal. All bid

tho contracts for tho servico proposed for in tho
accepted bids, thoir legal liabilities wiil be en
forced against them.
