Tho up-country Pacific-coast papers are running over with the latest phase of railroad building, which has per manently established itself in "Wales. The novelty ef the thing consists in making a road and rolling-stock of one-third the usual size and weight and cost, do as much business and as speedily as two-thirds of that done on our large-sized roads, cars, etc. The advantages of this system in a rough and crooked country like this coast, cannot be over estimated. As feeders to main lines, and for penetrating ev ery nook and corner of the country at comparatively trilling cost, there has never been anything like it suggested. Now, who do we hear first- of engag ing in it 'i San Francisco, that never built any but its own street railroads, aiid ha" none too many of them. Your San Francisco capitalists can organize more important schemes (on paper) than any city of its size in the world. They are eternally spanning " the bay " with suspension or other bridges by which to reach tho main land, but the structures never get be yond the wind-work, or a franchise to sell out. San Francisco must have the credit of being a very liberal city on the subject of mines, and perhaps if she can once get a small bit of small railroad started, she will get to like the business of internal improvements on a large scale, and at least not throw cold water on those enterprises of mer it either in or outside her own State. Let us be hopeful that the turning point has at least been reached. New Mexico Items. Files of SaL ta Fe papers to the 11th, are at hand. Gov. McCormick arrived there on his way to "Washington, on the 8th. Ee received all the attention he could a3k from the citizens, and the press generally. On the 10th, he resumed his journey by stage toward the rail road. He was accompanied by Jas. Carson, who has been visiting the mines as far west as Burro, and goes to New York to report Mr. Ry- nerson, Adjt. Gen. of the Territory, has resigned The hold-over Sena tors and politicians were ctmcusirg at Santa Fe on the subject of having a session of the Legislature this winter. Pilenix. This place is in Salt river valley, north of the Gila. Advices of late date state that the rains will ena ble the farmers to raise good crops next year without irrigation; that settle ment is going ahead satisfactorily, and that Land Register Berry was down there from Prescott taking statements. . . . .The Sonorans who had stock stolen and sold to settlers on Salt river, have : got most of it back. Jfotas y Avisos para Nuestros Lec- tores Mejicanos. DEI'RADACIONLS DE DfDIOS. El tren de los Sres. Tully, Ohcoa & DeLong que llevaba flete del Tucson para Apache Pass fue atacado el Do mingo pasado, dia 18 del presente, a cosa de uuas trelnta millas acia al Es te de este lugar, por una partida de In dios, cerca setenta y-sinco en nu moro; los cuales eran todos buenos guc reros y bien provistos de armas venta josas. Despues de una apurada y fe ros pelea, resultaron con perdida de un hombre y dos malmente heridos, cuyos nombres rcspectivos son; Martin Rivera, Teodosio Oaravajal y Nepifa nio Barragan, el primero muerto y los dos ultimos heridos. Los salvages fuersn tan afortunados que despues de no haber tenido ningu na perdida, arrearon consigo 37 cabe zas. Fue este un ataque de los mas terriblcs que se han visto en Arizona ; pues habia mas de treinta Indios tan acostumbrados a guerrillas con los tre nes, que parecian mas bien andar en divercion, que en precipicio de perder sus vidas, pues no los detenian ni res petaban a las mismas balas. La escena de la refricga fue al Sur do la ruta del correo y a poca distancia del lugar donde quemaron el coche en Agosto pasado. El Sr. DeLong llego a tiempo de A pache Pass para traer a los heridos al Tucson que es donde estan y se les a tendera cuidadosamente hasta que re cobren de sus heridas. El dia 15 del corriente, los Indios .se arrearon un hato de reces del Rio de San Pedro, pero los recidentes de ese lugar tomaron tanto empeno en perse guirloa, que al fin consiguireon solo en hacerlos abandnar el ganado sin atre verse a darles batalla. Se alcansaron a co3a de 18 millas de donde fueron perseguidos. Los Tenientes Cusliing y Bourke, saliaion de aqui con algunas tropas, en perseguimiento de los Indios que asal taron el tren de lo5 Srs Tully y Ochoa, peio es muy dudoso que hallen a estos bribones rasa de viboras. El Teniente Gushing volvio ya de su espedicion, durante la cual sorpren djouna rancheria de Indios, de los cuales solo logro matar uno o dos y capturar una parte de propiedad que llevaban consigo.. . .Gushing y Bourke llegaron de vuelta el Jueves, y ambos salon otra vez, para hacer un completo exploratorio al enemigo. ASTJXTOS GEXEItALES. El valle del Rio Salado su esta po blando rapidamente. Hay sin embai go terreno para muchos otros labrado res que quieran establecerse en ese riachuelo. El Fuerte Goodwin sera dentro de poco abandonado por el Gobierno ; de suerte que las fabricas podran bien proportionates albergue a todos los que deseen sembrar en el Gila. En aquella vecindad se encuentran buenos terrenos, que ademas tendrian la ven taja de estar cerca del mercado, tales como el fuerte Thomas y Apache Pass eomo tambien de las minas 3e las Bur ras. No hay en Arizona bastantes pro ductos, manufacturas, ni tampoco hay sufisiente cultivo de vinas u otros ar boles frutales como son duraznos man zanas ect. ect. Los habitantes deberian hacer sus propias baquetas y escobas, las que se traen aqui a costa de muchos gastos. Manana es Noche-Buena. Este es un dia en que todos los cristianos sien ten un gran regocijo dentro de sus co razones; y cualquiera que sean sus creencias, siempre se unen para cele brarlo. Esperamos que todo3 se rego cijaran en estremo. Todos los que no reciban su aguinaldo pueden bieu dar lo a otros. Esta noche se podran ad querir en la Loteria de Zeckendorf. Vengan por uno o mas. ' Alegre Noche-Buena y feliz Ano Nuevo son los deseos del Citizen. Asuirros estbangeros. La guerra entre Francia y Prusia, sigue todavia ; y como de costumbre, los Franceses han sido derrotados en casi todas partes. Se cree que Paris, la capital de Francia caira en manos del enemigo dentro de una o dos semanas. Ya vemos que el govierno que man do a Maximiliano a Mejico, tiene ahora que sentir. LETTER FROM BURRO MINES. Tlu: Weather The Town GivwingAn Emphatic Growl al Postal Wants -1 Big Time Ohristmas, Etc., Etc. Ralstojt, Dec. 14., 1870. Last night Ave. were visited with a light fall of exceeding Avhito snow. The tem perature here for a few days has been rather low for this section, with more wind which like a two edged sword cut both ways. The snow storm has had the good effect to modify the weather and this evening while I am writing Ave are having a gentle show er of rain. We may again have the genial sun and the balmy breeze for a while, that makes its tardy way to other and more rigorous regions in April and June. Two trains loaded with corn passed here on yesterday for Apache Pass. Our toAvn is gradually growing notwithstanding the quiet times. The people arc generally busy preparing for the opening of business which promises to be at an early day. The greatest inconvenience we have to en counter is the facility for mails. The Postmaster at Rio Mimbres has got his iro excited at something some one at Santa Fe has said and is endeavoring to reek his vengeance on this community by withholding all mail matter for this place: so dignifi ed has ha become that he will not deign to honor a Avritten order but in sists that all, must appear "en per sona " for their mail, else famish for want of news. "Whether it is because he cannot read a written order, or that he desires to malce a personal ac quaintance of the good people of Rals ton is not yet definitely known. There are those here Avho are anxiously aAvaiting the arrival of letters of great importance, and it has been hinted that some of them may be obliged to go to the Mimbres to get their mail. I have no doubt but that one visit from Ralston will fully satisfy the curiosity of the Mimbres officials, hence it is to be hoped the mail Avill come by next coach. The Burro Minstrels have not made an appeai'ance before the public but are diligently engaged in preparing for the holidays. Some of the boys are in the mountains after turkey and it is confidently expected to have the biggest time betAveen the tAVO Oceans on Christmas. Hepner is going to he(l)p, Pantlune Avill pant, Savage Avill fight, PoAver, lend his strength, Tom. Dunn, Avill pay up, LaBoll will re-label his sugar and coffee for profit, Jim. Wood Avill burn a match, Grant Avill keep his potatoes, George Warreu take a drink, Haggerty look more haggard, if he don't cease taking drinks, and Riley Avill do as he agrees every time. As Congress is about to convene I Avill hold my breath for the present, and Avish you Tucsonians, all a Merry Christmas and Happy .New Year. Truly, R. Nevada Journaliss!, &c.-The Re publicans having lost Elko county, Nevada, The Semi-Weekly Chronicle came down to once a Aveek, and then yielded the ghost. But the truth is, that railroad toAvn has had its "business cut into by the many rival stations, and one paper must hedge to live. At Reno, the Republicans Avon, and now they have tAvo papers (one sore-head and one regular) there. But there too other business seems, on the contrary, to warrant it. Reno shot up, then fell and is getting its second wind, and is truly the only railroad toAvn between Truckee and Corinne that appears to bo a fixture and possessing a splendid future. The Sierra is a healthy back ground, that there is no going back of, and Reno has a great frontage. A large amount of freight has been for Avarded to Tucson during the past weak, by Messers. Gordon, Stewart & Co. San Diego Bulletin, 17th Bills Before Congress. When Congress adjourned a largo numberof important bills were pending. Many of these are likely to come up early in the present session. Among the more important bills are the fol loAving. Bill to encourage ship-building, etc. There are several bills to increase American commerce, among which is that of the Mediterranean and Orien tal Steamship Navigation Company. These bills mostly provide for the transportation of the United States mails to Europe by a steamship Tauilt in the United States. Bill to grant a subsidy to a line of steamers built between San Francisco and ports in Australia. A bill to eneourage telegraphic com- -munications with foreign countries. Included in this bill are the proposals of a telegraph cable between San Francisco and China and Japan, and also between a port in the United States and Belgium. A bill to relieve members of Con gress from importunity, and to pre serve the independence of the differ ent departments of the government. A resolution to regulate the hours' of labor. throughout the United States. A bill to establish a postal telegrapli system in the United States. A bill to make the importation of immigrants under labor contracts un lawful. A bill to reform the civil service of the United States. A bill to establish a territorial gov ernment in Alaska. Bills to admit as States in the Un ion the territories of Colorado and New Mexico. A bill to aid the Kansas Pacific Railway, and also one for the cons truction of the Menphis and HI Paso and the Midland Pacific railways. A bill to punish polygamy. A oill to reduce the rates of pospage and to abolish the franking privilege. A bill to regulate the government printing, and to do aAvay with the pu blication of public documents for gen eral distribution. It is not probable that all of these bills Avill pass, at least in their pre sent shape. Some of them will lead to protracted discussion, and Avill dis close a strong opposition. The Arizona Contests As is usual when a party is badly beaten, the opponents of GoAernor McGormick in Arizona are iioav charg ing that his election Avas by fraud; but they establish nothing whatever. On the Colorado River, Avhere from gratitude for his action in changing the route 01 the Government freight every one Avished to help him, there may, at one or tAvo points, havo been an excessive vote, but elsewhere no question can possibly be raised ; and if all the votes upon the Colorado to which the least suspicion is attached; Avere thrown out he Avould yet have a large majority. But Ave hear it on good authority that at Phoenix some one hundred probably illegal votes were cast for Brady, and sworn in, and at Wickenburg nearly fifty of the same character were cast. Indeed throAving out the votes in Yavapai Co., known to be illegal, Gov. Mc Cormick carried the county by a small majority. Persons who live in glass houses should not throw stones ; and men Avho resorted to such dodges as did the Mowry-Brady-Oury party in Arizona in the recent election should bo very careful how they complain of, or criticise the course of others. Gov. McCormick is not only legally re elected to Congress from Arizona, but but he is elected by a very large ma jority, considering the vote cast, the independent and manly platform he occupied and the mendacious charac ter of the opposition to him-for surely a good and faithful officer Avas never more unreasonably, malignantly or unjustly opposed. His re-election should have been a unanimous grate ful A'ote rather than by a contest the most intense and virulent ever had in the Territory. Mowry has much to answer for in stirring up (as he did to a great degree) such malicious and unwarantable antagonism to the best representative and friend Arizona has ever had, and Avill yet repent it. San Diego Bulletin. ' Making Fraud Odious' Every where tho Press is 'going for' MoAvry and his lying dispatch about Arizona And the telegraph is repenting too.
