B. Cooper and P. Arnold, recently from the Burro mines, and resting here a few days on their way to San Fran cisco, called upon us. The former is a resident of San Francisco, has operated in the quartz mines of Qolorado for seven years, and is now connected with a New York company opei ating in the Burros, and the latter is a pio neer of these mines, and interested withHarpending, Roberts & Compa ny. From them we get substantially the following report : A belief that the Burro mines are in Arizona ; that the projected mills upon the Gila will surely bo; that the distance to the Gila from the mines via the contemplated railway, is not above 25 miles : that there will be no cuts nor fills on the line ; that Mr. Harpending has gone east to pro cure machinery for ' mills, and means to construct the railway ; that the cost of the latter, over a narrow gauge, will not exceed 300, GOO; that it is possible ores may be worked at a profit at the dump of the mines ; that the distance to abundance of wood in the Burro mountains, by an easy road, is 25 miles ; that many wells have been dug in and about Ralston, and plenty of pure water obtained in every case at from seven to twenty feet ; that a million of dollars will be expended there in 1871 ; that it is no place at present for moa without means ahead to prospect or sustain themselves ; that it is a good one for mining operators to examine ; that those who have spent most time and money in investigations of these ores have most confidence in their value, and purpose expending large sums of money on the strength of their belief. They also bring specimens of crys tals which they believe to ba dia monds, and which were found at the mines. Mr. Cooper appears to be a man of judgment in this respect, and he is sanguine that they are genuine by comparison of tests made of those found with some Brazilian gems in his possession. He is quite sure that rubies are plentiful, and other pre cious stones are lying around inviting the gatherer. . Mr. Arnold says he has found silver placers in the Burro mountains, and small pocket deposits, and also a vein of tin near Steen's Peak. "We arc pleased to hear such encour aging reports, ana shall bo more pleased to witness their verification. by the actual operations which, they aver are assuming shape and soon to be practically applied. McCormiclc m New Mexico. " Mr. McCormick we know to be an energetic representative, who left noth ing undone that the interests of his constituents required. He is a gentle man of commanding ability, whose friends at the National capital are hosts, and whose influence is at once a credit and a benefit to his Territory." "Mr. McCormick is respected and possesses an enviable reputation and influence in his party. He has made a useful, untiring, honorable representa tive in the past, and it certainly seems to us that our neighbors would neith er act in a wise nor grateful manner were they to reject him." Santa Fe Post, Oct. 22, Looking Hithenvard.

Many men looking for permanent homes are about making a tour of ob servation through Arizona, as well as speculators. The past summer has brought numbers, and but for the fre quency of Indian depredations, they would have either remained or depart ed with favorable reports.

As a stock and grain growing and mineral producing region, no equal part of Uncle Sam's broad domain will surpass it a decade hence, and the outside world is reali zing the fact, and strange faces are daily greeting us and news of more on the way, or soon to be, greets us by every mail. The sweep of the iron horse through Arizona will as surely hasten peace to all of this Territory, as did Sherman's march from Atlanta to the sea hasten peace to the nation. There is a "good time coming" in Arizona. La Paz. A letter from La Paz da ted Nov. 9th has the following : "On the evening of the 7th, -the people of La Paz held a mass meeting, and resolutions heartily appi'oving the course of Gov. McCormick in Con gress, and favoring his re-election, were unanimously adopted. At the close of the meeting, Hon. M. Ravena invited the whole assembly to a ball and supper at his house. Sixty la dies graced the ball, and the supper was equal to any ever given in the Territory. Mr. Ravena had made the most ample preparations, and great praise is justly awarded to him. On election day, the people turned out and worked with a will for the candidate of their choice. Result, jycGornrick 110 votes, Brady 1. Among those prominent in their ef forts besides Mv. Ravena, were Peter Doll, R. Cole, J. "W. Darrington, J. Duff and G. Gross. However JicCor- mick may have been treated in La Paz in years gone by, ho is the favor ite here at this time." Colonel James M. Barney, of Ar izona City, proved his fast friendship for McCormick in the recent cam paign and demonstrated his influence on the Colorado river. Those who thought they were making anything by their attacks on Hooper, "Whiting and Co. must now confess that they were sadly mistaken. Col. B. is elec ted Treasurer of Yuma County by a great majority. Just the man for the place. New York,' Oct 28th. Informa tion is received that a cyclone almost equal in violence to that which swept over the eastern portion of Cuba on the 7th, has desolated the western portion of the Island. Nineteen towns and villages were leveled, with grown crops and destroyed, and immense damage done to property. Reports of the loss of life and shipping are coming in through telegraph communications, and travel west is yet suspended. , San Francisco DailiesThe Valu able Ones. reaucea to eignt uays, our peopie are beginning to subscribe for the daily papers of that city. Price, and quali- ly of news and editorial comments are the essential points to decide in making a choice. The Alta has for a Jong time past opened its columns too freely to vaaabondish slanderers of Arizona and her best men, and there' fore is unworthy the support of any- true friend of the Territory. The Ex aminer has done likewise, and is therefore as unworthy as the Alta The Abend Post is a German daily of eight columns, and worthy of patron age.

Prentice Mulford, a-journalist of much, merit, and a critic of rare powers of discern ment, and independence of expression, gives the annexed opinion of the Bul letin, the correctness of which, no man at all acquainted with the mam mcnt of that journal "will question "The Bulletin I regard as the Icing paper of the city. It is a power iu the land. It can at least in city poli tics unmake any man it turns its guns against. I am almost tempted to say the same as to the State. Gorham and McCoppin can testify to this as sertion. There are numbers of re spectable, well to do people hi San Francisco, who delegate to the Bulle tin a large part of their thinking. It is their political watch dog. Its mis sion is, they consider, to look after the plunderer. If the Bulletin says "spot that man," they spot him, and give themselves no farther trouble in the matter. They consider the Bulletin independent and reliable. Some other papers may be read for fun, spice and variety, but for cold, knockdown and the graddiest kind of grad kind fact they depend on the Bulletin. The paper deserves this confidence. It is in my estimation, independent of all manner of rings, cliques, combi nations or business influences. There is a vast amount of idle talk, as to the facility to which certain journals may be bought. I do not believe there is enough money in San Francisco to control the Bulletin's columns. Its managers hold its independence price less, for that independence is its cor ner stone- capital. If ever a paper is sold to any interest it parts with its freedom. It goes into slavery to that interest ; it is in its power. It is the Sampson shorn ot his locks. Lhe locks are public confidence. Delilah is the buyer. She may be unknown. But the public soon see that a certain strength has gone. It taiies a long ,time for the hd,ir to grow again. I do not mean that this paper is in dependent of the various political, re- bgious and social prejudices existing in the country. In them it finds many limits as to expression. It is a cautious navigator on this sea so thickly studded with rocks, reefs and shoals of varying opinion. The Bul letin editorial room is a little Senate. I think most of its expressions must pass the ordeal of editorial and pro-, pvietorial discussion ere they have place in its columns. On important matters, two, three and four heads are deemed better than one in those apart ments. It is very clever in marching along with progressive public opinion. It avoids the vanguard and gets none of the scratching in the brambles and briars through which all the pioneers or Radicalism must torce their way "What's radical to-day you know is conservative thirty years hence. Neither does it lag so far behind as to incur the charge of old fogyism. lt is an admirably sailed craft. If it changes it does so gradually and ini- Lperceptibly. It turns jio sharp cor ners, xou must watch, it, garetuiiy for a term of years to bcTOiha'gensibU of its.deflections. It is a long curve on.the railroad. One must, look far back to know how great the turn. Its managers. and editors aro gentlemanly and courteous. They know how to deal in their office with the individu als of that variegated, tiresome ami often stupid animal, the public. Their treatment of this beast is a les son to all' in power and office. One gets for his money far more airs and pomposity from some railroad conduc tor or hotel clerk, than the magnates of the Bulletin office. And they are powers and can make things warm for many if they wish. They are obliged to say "No" many, many times,- but they have learned to say it so gently that you imagine it to bo some other word, or that you have part of a 'Yes' until you are fairly out of the office." Col. Ceran St. Yrain. Yesterday the telegraph announet.'d the death of Col. Ceran St. Yrain, who died at his residence in Mora, in this Territory, at six o'clock P. M. on Fri day, the 2Sth instant, of paralysis. The death of Gol. St. Vrain removes from our midst the most prominent of the early pioneers of New Mexico. Col. St. Yrain, in connection with Gov. Charles Bent and brothers, came to the northern frontier of the then province of New Mexico, from the State of Missouri, about the year 1821 or 1822. Under the style of Bent, St. Yrain & Bros., they engaged exten sively in the fur trade, and also in the opening of the overland commerce with New Mexico, Chihuahua and Southern Mexico. The company pushed their trading posts up the sev eral forlis of the Arkansas and Platto rivers, and also kept and maintained commercial establishments at Taos and Santa Fe. Always held and respected under the Mexican Government as a promi nent and leadinir man, when New Mexico fell under the government of the United States he naturally became and was a leading citizen in influence, enterprise, and usefulness. He was always found ready at the call of duty, and no more gallant military sorvjeos in behalf of the country have been per formed than these of Col. St. Yrain. In the suppression of the insurrection in Taos, in January, 1847, when, at the head of a company of mounted men and merchants of Santa Fe, he so effectually avenged the massacre of their mends and countrymen; or when, at the head of a regiment of volunteers iu 1854, he marched against the combined Utes and Apaches, and by the skill and strategy and untiring perseverance which he had acquired by long years ot experience m Indian warfare, added to his native sagacitv, courage and gallantry, he so effectual ly tamed these unconquered moun tain marauders, that there has been comparative peace with them since that ever memorable campaign. bmce JN ew Mexico has been a ler- itory of the Uinted States, Ceran St. Yrain's name has been among the first in all enterprises inaugurated for the public good, either commercial, edu cational or political. His high toned character, his gentle and winning courtesy, his large-hearted benevo lence, drew all classes of men to nim. All felt gratification and satisfaction . in following him in peace and war, in private or public enterprise. As un selfish as he was benevolent, as gentle. arenerous and tender of heart as he 3 brave and magnanimous he could not but attract all possessing any portion of a like nature. Truly will it be said and felt by all who knew him: "We have not only lost a distinguished and good citizen, we have lostahV;(tZ." Santa Fe Fof, Oct. 30. Ixfantby CA3ir.
