It inust also be borne in mind that, several of the posts have for months had barely tr.jops enough to guard the government property. It is an easy thing to kill Indians after they are found, and many labo rious and extended hunts have been made without even seeing one. Li all such cases the troops are entitled to as much credit as if they had found and killed Indians, as their labors are more tedious and exhausting. While we admit that more might have been effected, we a sk remorseless critic:.', have we not fairly if not elaborately stated the case ' And we may ask wherein they, if in command, would have improved upon the amount and character of the work, all circum stances considered r1 It is one and an easy task to stand off, after a year passes, and say that this and that might have been done here and there that were not; but to have been an ac tive participant and consummated j more and better results, is a vastly dif ferent job. , We do not hold that because a man is in the military sendee, he is entitled to any milder criticism than one in the civil service. Both are public servants, paid from the common fund, and officially created by the same power. In the civil and military ser vice, there are always some worthless officers, and always will be, but this fact does not justify a wholesale de nunciation of either. Lot criticism be founded justly and administered as se verely or favorably as justice demands. They also recommend that the rec ords kept in the Recorder's office, which was made when Pima County was a part of the Territory of New Mexico, and are now in a bad condi tion, without index, &3., shonld be transcribed into the books provided by ihe County for that purpose. They find that the Supervisors have been careful in tlie expenditure of the county funds, and they balieve that the county will be free from debt hi a very short time. The Grand Jury would call the at tention of the supervise rs to the condi tion of the main highway at the "wa ter hole," nine miles north from Tuc son. The road at this place is in an almost impassable condition, We Avould also call the attention of the es, Arizona sjicts one oecause oi ms ssured ;toihty and litness.

'San Diego amlSouthern Arizona. A comparative test of routes for travel and freight from California to Southern Arizona, has given the one via San Diego preference. Unless bu siness call travelers via Wickenberg, Prescott, Ehrenberg or La Paz, all for south and many nofth of the Gila take the San Diego route. ' Freights are now principally coming via the same one. Several of our merchants are receiving goods that way, and have large train loads coming, and so far as we can hear, with full satisfac tion. Thus it appears the wagon road Copious rains not showers have recently fallen and brightened every thing hi Southern California. That re gion had long suffered from an almost unparalleled drouth, but the moisture has Kmcrously come, and songs of gladness prevail among the people. route is established. This is more Supervisors to an obstruction in Court gratifying to San Diego people than House street, consisting of a building ; to Arizonans. We, of course, prefer in the centre of said street, about 200 the cheapest, quickest and safest, and yards north of the main plaza, said that by San Diego has that reputation building being claimed by one Simon n0w.

In his message to the Fifth Territorial Legislature, he used the following language : " In all your legislation you should consider the Hrgo population of the Territory unacquainted wicii the .Eng lish tongue, out entitled to respect and protection. This population em DiacrS many excellent and enterpri sing citizens bxu of naiv.j and for eign bkth, and is no-aolefor its obe dience to law, its cheerful contribu tion to the revenues and its industrial 'ha acter. As it controls much of the ousiness of the Territory , and is iden itied with nearly every pursuit, the restriction of the code preventing any one acting as a juror unless he under stands proceediusrs in ttie Encrlish language (always considered of doubt ful constitutionality) should as a mat te i of justice, h removed, and the pro ceedings be had both in Encrlish and ripamsa, or interpreters provided. It is also desirable that all laws or gen eral importance and interest should T published in both languages." In accordance with thi3 suggestion. the restriction of the code was re moved by act of the Legislature, and citizens of Jiexican origin, whether they speak the English language or not, now sit upon our juries. Surely Governor McCormick's rec ord regarding the Mexican population is all they or their friends could pos sibly desire, and they were slow to vote against him although every effort was made to force them to do so. As for the report that the Gov. has in any of his speeches here or in other coun ties spoken disparagingly of the Mex icans, we brand them basely and' un qualifiedly false, and known to be such by their unprincipled authors. Tiie Bulletin says the Pacific Mail steamejs will soon have a coaling sta tion in San Diego harbor. This prac tically puts that place in direct com munication with New York via Pana ma. If San Francisco desire to hold the Arizona trade, she must speedily con stra t a railway to the Golorodo rivor and keep pushing it eastward. Even thencefoward her merchants and man ufacturers may experience a very sharp competition.
