ST. JOHNS, A. T., ; THURSDAY.
In view of the fact that there are
recognized reconstructed govern
ment persons who have fail
ed to profit by the teach
ings of the apostles of Republican
ism, the illustrious devotees of
union and liberty; Lincoln and
Sumner, who have gone into im
mortality leaving legacies of love ;
for the whole people ; that there
are peons who fail up to the pre
sent time to see any patriotism or
human sympathy in the action of
General Grant, who lead the armies
massed for the preservation of the
union to victorj', who in the hoiir
of the country's triumph, sajd to
conquored hosts, "Keep the impli-,
ments of your warfare for use in
the pursuits of peace; let your
swords be turned into plowshares, j
and your spears into pruning hooks,
your horses will aid you in the cul
tivation of your lands, ani you will
need them alh" The great general
stands upon the threshold of eter
nity; the gates are opening and he
is almost in companionship with
Lincoln, Chase, Sumner, Garfield,
Stanton, Andrews, Brownlow and
the patriotic Host that have gone to
'their reward. Ask him while yet
upon the earth, if he regrets his
love for his fellowman, whether now
ithere is anything dwelling within
his heart but fellowship for e.very
one above whose head floats the
stars and stripes.
Upon this subject we quote from
Harpers Magazine of the 21st of
March, testimony from the living
and the dead, severally represent
ing the extremes of the North and
South. We commend the article to
those from whose lips the word
'Rebel' falls so constantly and con

Sumner died, Secretary Lamar, a
"rebel brigadier," and then a mem

the memory of Sumner, and who

bill which he introduced in Decem

placed on the regimental colors of
the United States Mr. Lamar said :
"Let us hope that future genera

tion signalized its consecration to
the principles, as each understood

bonstitution received from their fa-
Ihers. Charles Sunnier in life be
lieved that all occasion for strife

"South had passed away. Are there
not many of us who believe the
same thing? Is not that the com
mon sentiment, or, if it is not, ought
it not to be, of the great mass of
our people north and south? Bound
to each other by a common Con
stitution, destined to live together
under a common government, for
ming unitedly but a single member
of a great family of nations, shall
we not now at last endeavor to
grow towards each other once more
in heart as we are already indissol

serve only to perpetuate. misunder-
standings and distrust, and frankly
confess that on both sides we most
earnestly desire to ne one one not
merely in political organizations,
one not merely in community of
language and literature, and tradi
tions and country, but more and
better than all that, one also.in feel

Now if the statement of the for

one year ago, when contention re

Mormons could "place a million of

guilty of a very irreligious "bluff."
If Milner is correct with regard to
numbers, the forces of the Mormon
church have become unaccounta

and makes a handsome showing
among the young of that people of
the growing unpopularity of polyg

been, to say the least of it, exciting.

Cochise county now has a fence
Maricopa county proposes to or
ganize a live stock association and
a meeting for that purpose has been
, called to meet at Phoenix on the
2Sth of the present month.
The most reliable data obtainable
remarks an exchange, shows the
number of head of live stock in Ar
izona to be as follows : Cattle, 288,
.000; horses, 31,800; mules, 18,600;
swine, 1&,000 ; total estimated val
ue, $9,000,000. '
The Stockman would again urge
upon the several stock associations
of the territory the importance of
speedily making their selections for
cattle inspectors to cany out the
provisions of the quarantine law,
and recommend the same to the
Governor for appointment. It is
quite sure that many cattle will be
brought in this season from Texas,
as there have lately been many cow
men from that state looking for
ranges in Arizona, and every pos
sible precaution should be taken to
prevent the introduction of any
that are diseased.
