Found a horse, saddle, etc. see ad'vt- 8. W. Foreman is an accomplished sur veyor, civil engineer, &c. Read his card. 8an Dikoo dates to the 3d by Thursday's mail. Nothing exciting there. Egos command $1 per dozen, and butter the same per lb. Two Mexicans had a row with a third, on Thursday, wherein the latter was cut in the arm and head pretty severely. Jobbing rates of wheat, 3c; corn 3c; barley 4c. Flour, $5 per cwt. Mr. Long, of San Pedro, was in town lately, and said the crops, and particularly the corn, were very good out there this season. Gov. Satford has given his office and reception room a thorough overhauling, and it looks as neat and elegant as new. Gen. Allen has returned from Altar, where he went last week to look after his grist mill, and other interests. Ducks, of good quality, and in goodly numbers, are sold in town at $0 per doz. No other wild game brought in, for some cause. S. W. Chambers, above Tubac, on the Santa Cruz, had ten thousand lbs. of corn burnt lately, and the ranch next above him lost all, the proprietor of which let the fire start and get ahead of him. Arizona Crrr will no doubt take good care of a lot ot calico that is said to have taken its departure from Tucson lately. They are determined to be happy if not virtuous. The blocks occupied by Fish & Co. and Mr. Hayden, are undergoing improve ment in the. way of new facings. Main street will soon present a fine appearance throughout. Letter from the proprietor of the Citi zen at Arizona City, goes over till next week. He did not connect at that point, and was there three days, and hence gives a full history of the place. The well, for the new station nine miles this side of Blue Water, is down fifty feet. Should this well and station be a success, it will equalize drives and ease the line considerably clear through. A. H. Cargill, Assistant Postmastmer, left for Arizona city on Thursday's stage. He will return by the next stuijc it the hospitality of the people in the. iuma and Apache trails don't "prove too much for his capacity. Bad people those Yumas. Justice Meyers informs us that he ex tended the time of George Westly and John Ryan, escaped and returned to the chain-gang, to six months 150 fine ; and they evidently deserved it. Durinjithe in terval they made a raid on the clothing of some soldiers at the post. The Soiree at Charley Foster's last eve ning, was quite a success ; every one pres ent say they enjoyed it very much. The festive "Steve" and jovial '.'Speedy," gave the word of command to suit all, "Cady" served up the supper, and "George" did the agreeable behind the counter to match. Weather still dry and cold; also, cloudy. Our prognostication of rain last Saturday resulted in a bit of a sprinkle the same evening. On Monday morning, the first ice of the season was noted. It was not enough to skate on, however. Oranof.3, of unusually large size and good ilavor, are to be had at L. & W.'s at fifteen cents apiece. They arc from Hcr mosillo. Among them is a China orange, the result of a graft, that weighs 2f lbs., and is about six inches in length. It is a monster, and shaped like a pear. Colorado Navigation Co. Elsewhere is a notice to the effect that Mr. A. J. Finlay has been appointed agent of the above company at Arizona City. We have had the pleasure of his acquaintance, and judge him to be the right man In the right place, and all that sort of thing; besides, being a good social fellow. Tullt, Ochoa & Co., have teams re turning from Camp Bowie and Grant. Fish & Co. have two twelve and fourteen mule teams en route by the Gila with 16,000 and 17,000 pounds each of merchandise. The wagons are of the back-action order, a style uot generally adopted in Arizona yet. Mr. HuTcniNSON, Esq., traveling agent for the firm of H. Webster & Co., whole sale and retail dealers, 410 Front st., San Francisco, has been in Tucson during the week, and reports himself satisfied with his visit. He is a clever and popular gen tleman. He returns by way of Prescott, Wickenberg, &c. Lieuts. Brodie and Kyle, lately arrived with recruits, will start for their ultimate destination to-day camps Thomas and Bowie. They have eighteen men each, and will escort Degare's and Apple's trains, with large amount of stores, as far as Goodwin, on the way to Thomas. Brodie commands the outfit. He, with Lt. Bo mus, will go to Thomas, the other officer and men to Bowie. Dr. Martin goes out with the party on a tour of inspection, and intends to return soon to San Francisco. Col. Lee has been very busy during the week getting the trains loaded and oft. He will not let the boys suffer far anything in his extensive quartermaster's larder. Meeting of Board ot Supervisors. The Beard met on the 5th December present James H. Toole (chairman), and John W. Sweeney. The proposition of J. Nengass to board prisoners, went over till meeting of a full Board. The records, as transcribed by the Recorder from the old books, were exam ined,, when the Board adjourned till the 6th. Pursuant to adjournment, Board met and made a thorough examination of the Jail-yard and walls ; also, of the doors and windows of the eourt-house, as recom mended by the grand jurors, at their last session ; and it was ordered by the Board that John W. Sweeney report what steps to take in complying with the suggestion. Several bills were laid over for want of accompanying explanations, but bills to the aniount of $3470,33 were allowed and warrants for their payment ordered issued. Ordered that the iloor of the office for merly occupied by the Recorder be repair ed for the use of Chief Justice Titus, and that the Recorder occupy the office used by the Clerk oi the district court. Adjourned till to-day the 10th. Mr. Hooker, of the firm of Hinds & Hooker, was in town this week on his reg ular circuit around the Territory. Hook er is one of the few men of this country who defies 6pace, and in his movements in point of speed would put to shame the lo comotive, if we had any ; and as for the Apache, Hooker gives him no show. He neither waits for him to lay his ambush, or spring it after it is laid. Mr. H. has lately come from Altar, where he found and had jugged, a couple ot the thieves who so ungratefully levied on his cattle. He says he has all confidence in the au thorities at Altar, who treated him most gentlemanly, and assured him that justice would be meted out to the culprits. He says his affairs are settled up, so that he hopes to have a few weeks rest, and will be with us for awhile. Grand Christmas Lottery A. & L. Zeckendorf advertise in poster and paper that they will have a grand lot tery on Christmas eve, when 1,000 worth of prizes will be drawn. There are two hundred tickets and two hundred prizes tickets $5 each. There are seven prizes, the total value of which is $740. The pro portion in pri5;c and prices is very good, and the chance." arc sufficiently numerous to he attractive. Responsible parties will oversee the drawing. See advertisement. A crazt Mexican gave some of our citi zens more or less trouble during the week. He was not violent, but annoying, and a subject for starvation and death, unless attended to. The authorities should pro vide for this sort of unfortunates whether there is a statute or not, and if the latter be wanting, the Legislature should make a- stringent one early as possible. Governor Safibrd, we believe, has written to the Gov ernor of California on the subject of hav ing the insane of this Territor' taken care of by that Stare, at the former's expense. Mr. Bennett canio into our office yesterday iu time to forestall the pub lication of half a column of growl regarding the want of any sort of a hotel in Tucson, but prefer hi3 adver tisement, announcing the reopening of a hotel in the Levin building, where he can accommodate a great mjny beaidors and at least thirty lodgers. This is a most timely an nouncement, as the legislators and followers will be along in a few weeks and a good hotel should be ready to accommodate all who come. Mr. Bennett is a live man, and we hope and believe ho will not let the oportu nity pas3 for giving the place a name for good hotel accommodaations. Local Races. A 300-yard running race came oil' on "Wednesday near town, and caused considerable talk. The bay horse of H. C. Long, of San Pe dro, and the bay maro of Mr. Ashton, of Santa Gruz, near Tubac, were the contesting animals the former win ning by ten feet ; the owners rode their respective chargers. Stakes, $20 a side. A match between the same is made to come off hare New-year's, 100 a side. PiJRSONAX. Mr Hopkins, a well known gentleman hereabouts, came in from his boyhood home, by last buck board, and looks bright as if re-coined. . . . .Mr. Dickey, an old resident also, and just from a six-months visit to his old home in New York, looks fully as good as new. . . .Quartermaster Boss, of Camp Crittenden, is sojourning in town a few days and enjoying it much . . . .Win. Osborne, farmer near Tubac and late post-trader at Crittenden, is here, and may conclude to stay. FALiiECiO. En el Tucson el dia 3 do Diciembre de 1870, Maria Asedo, de la cdad do 44 anos, 8 meses y seis dias. Deja a su uiadre y una numerosa fa milia, quienes lamentan su perdida. Su funeral fue atendido muy suntuosa mcnte el Domingo pasado. The Santa Fe Post of Nov. 20th says : Jack Davis, the southern mail contract or, arrived from the States yesterday. Everybody about Tucson knows "Jack." He is a genial, rollicking man, full of ac tivity and business. We hope he'll make million long before h " pegs out." Camps Goodwin and Thomas Mr. Ochoa, whose teams are remov ing the stores from Camp Goodwin to Camp Thomas, has lately returned from that region, and from him we learn that there will soon be a good opportunity for settlers to start in and occupy the country and the abandoned government buildings, if they wish. There will bo room for seventy-five families, and there is the best of land all ready for the plow and seed, along either side of the Gila in that vicinity, to accommodate the entire population of the Territory. Goodwin is about eighty miles north of Bowie, fifty west of where the Burro company in tend to erect their reduction works, seventy-five miles south of Camp Thomas, and the White Mountains, hence there will be the advantage of a market for all produce grown. At Goodwin, there is a fine spring of wa ter, but the place is not considered the most healthy, yet the settler need not stop at that particular point, if he choose. The Indian reservation does not infringe upon the good bottom land, and altogether there is a large section of the best land in the Territo ry awaiting hands to till it. Camp Thomas, under the supervision of Colonel Greene, is rapidly ap proaching completion. Its location is splendid. There is a steam saw-mill at Thomas, owned and run by gov ernment, and the steam is produced by coal discovered in the immediate vi cinity. The quarters at Thomas will be among the best in Arizona. Telegraph to Tucson. We learned sometime since, from sood authority, that the Western Union Co. arc determined telegraphic communication San Francisco, Guaymas, city of Mexico, whether by to havo between and the way of Lower California, or by Yuma, Tuc son and Sonora. If they get reason able assistance along the line, they will come this way. The Sonora people and authorities, as well as the central Government of Mexico, will no doubt give the enterprise every aid possible. But latterly we see a Guaymas item to the effbet that parties there are anxious and waiting to take the contract to extend the line that is building between there and the Capi tal of Mezico, on toward Tucson. That line is completed from the city of Mexico to that of Durango, or within 500 miles of Guaymas. Let our people wake up to this matter; the Legislature should take the sub ject under advisement as soon as possible after convening. Lieut. Cusiilxg and command has been gone on a scout for several days. Dr. Handy, who had the difficulty which resulted in the death of Eury, at Camp Thomas, returned as far as possible with Lieut. Cushing. The Doctor cami2 here to give himself up but found that the courts had no juris diction, and so he goes to Yavapai county. His course in the matter is very commendable. CONGRESS HALL C. O.
