Arizona Grape Culture "Wo have been permitted to publish the following extract from a letter ad dressed to Gov. Safford, by Daniel Eonelle, of St. Thomas, Pah-Ute Co. : I noticed some time ago in a speech you delivered that you had confidence in Arizona as a fruit growing country. I wish to inform you that I not only share this faith, but have demonstrat ed that wo have as good a vineyard country as the South of Europe. I have bearing the choicest grape vines of Portugal, Spain, Hungary, France and the Canary Islands, and the fruit is unsurpassed. It will not take long ere avo can export as tine raisins and Avines as can be found in the world. "We are glad to hear this faArorablo report from practical expeiience in raising fruit in our most northern county; Grapes have already bsen planted on Salt Biver, with fine pro miss. In this connection avo cannot too strongly urge upon our citizens the importance of putting out at once vines and fruit trees. The Eastern Mail. Letters pri vate and otherwise continue to speak in complaining tones of the feeble char acter of the mail transportation between Tucson and Santa Fe. It is hoped, iioav that tri-woekly service is pro posed, that the line Avill be thorough ly rejuvenated, and all causes of dis satisfaction removed. It is a hard route on the score of Indians alcne, and should be othoiAvise run on time and made generally useful to the country. As noAv conducted, instead of a semi Aveekly mail, there has hardly been a through Aveekly on time for a long time. This Avon't pay anybody, and it is hoped that a change for the better Avill soon take place ; as it is, the Avest ern route (between here and San Die go) Avhich is up to time every Avay, is damaged by the eastern, and there can bo no mutual benefits accrue as the latter is at present conducted. Foreign-. Latest from the Franco- German seat of war is up to the 23. Troops Avere pouring in for the de fense of Havre, upon which an at tack Avas daily expected. A Bordeaux dispatch of the 22d says there Avas a severe engagement near Tours yester day ; 6000 French fought 1 0, 000 Prus sians Avith 24 guns. The French fi nally retreated. The Prussians ad vanced and commenced to bombard Tours, AA-hen the Mayor surrendered, as there Avere no troops to defend it. A London dispatch of the 23d an nounces that a sortie from Paris took place yesterday. Gen. Venney took a point some miles from Paris and Du crot fought a battle near Aronay. "While peace rumors are abundant fighting continues. j ifotas y Avisos para Buestros Lec tores Mejicanos. ASUNTOS DE ESCUELA. Se ha abierto una suscription para pagar los gastos del Colegio; pues hasta ahora ha sido tan remiss la suma que se ha colectado, que ha sido obligatorio de paralizar el trabajo en tan util empresa. ?Pues que ya nos ol vidamos de los infinites males que en todos los tiempos ha ocasionado la ig norancia, y en las grandisimas venta jas que procurarian dar a sus hijos, si se intercziiran en su cducacion? TJn solo momento de reflexion nos basta ria para convencernos que si tienen un verdadero deseo de utilizar a la juven tud ociosa y pervertida de este pueblo, no pueden dejar do haccr y tomarse el mayor empeiio posible en concluir este trabajo, que es de donde les debe re sultar este bien de que os hablamos. Se exije, pues, de todos aquellos que simpatizan con nuestro proposito, de poner inanos y contribuir para que se establesca esta Escuela, No neccsita mos de comentos para probar la nece sidad que se tiene do proporcionar hi educacion a esta juventud, pues la ra zon natural nos suministra bastantes pruebas ya circunstanciadas, y solo se requiere un csfuerzo de vuestra parte para que se Tealizen nucstras buenas intenciones. Es en especial a lajpopu lacion Mejicana que nos dirigimos pa ra que hagan de su parte lo mas, como es muy justo y razonable, "sisndo que son los que forman la mayoria de los habitant es de esta frontera, y los que en rcalidad tienen mas necesidad del fruto de la education para niejorar su condicion y calmar su indigencia. fru to primordial y eventual de su falta do industria sobre este importante de ber de todo buen miembro de la socie dad cuando el beneficio rcdunda en provecho propio En caso que haya algunos que se iu teresen como nosotros en esta obra. pueden dirijirse al parroco de este lu gar y hacerse -jarticipes del adelanta miento de mucha insol'ente juventud proporcionandoles una buona educa cion ; y esto sucedera con solo ayudar contribuyendo con algun dinero, el cual se colecrara en la casa del susodi cho parroco, quien esta haciondo sus moyores estucrzos para llevar a cabo tan noble empreza. Dmante los ultimos seis meses, se han fabricado en el Tucson mas de cien casas do una u otra clase. Los tenientes Gushing y Bourke sa lieroii el Martes pasabo con el intento de iiacer otra espodicion contra los lu dios. En.lo sucsivo tendi-emos correo trcs A-eces a la semana entre San Diego y La Mesilla, que pasara tambien por el Tucson. Se espera solamente hasta que se hayau conseguido aballos cn las diferontes postas. Ahora no teue mos covreo sino dos A'eces a la semana. HORRIBLE ASESINATO. El Saba do pasado fue testigo do la terrible mortandad que tuAo lugar en Mission Camp a 40 millas hacia al Este del Fuerte Yuma. Algunos Mejicanos asesimaron a Charles Eeidt, que era quien superin tendia en la posta a Mr. Zitte, el co chero, y a Mr. Thomas Oliver el coci nero. La Seiiora de Eeidt recibio tambien un balazo en un muslo, mas no se es pera que esta herida ocasione su muer te. Se colije que estos habian tenido al guna reyerta contra Eeidt, pero no habia una cause justa para que so efectuase una muerte con tal A-ileza. Se supone que estos asesiuos se han retirado a Sonora a favoi-ecerse,. Los habitantes del Gila estan muy excitadosy esperan alcanzaran a los asesinos. Saquearon la posta de cuanto tenia incluyendo coches y caballos, y se portiaon de una manera muy bratal EE EUROPA. La guerra continua todabia al der redor de Paris, pero los prusianos mantienen el sitio muy de cerca. Es tos captnrai-on la ciudad de Tours que es a donde se mudo la capital del Go bierno Frances, despues de haber de jado Paris. . Los Prusianos deben re cibir pai-a el primero de Enero, la adi cion de una fuerza de 100,000 soldados. Es evidente que losFranceses no pue den sostener el sitio por mas tiempo. Un congreso de los poderes Europeos decidira que se le conceda a Prusia lo que pide, por el resultado comun de la guerra. Local Rumors of War. It has been unofficially telegraphed from Washington, and privately Avnt ten from San Francisco, and gossiped about the Territory, that the hostile Indians of Arizona are to be severely dealt Avith by Government. The ques tion is asked every day, as to Avhat truth there is in the matter. "We Avould ansAver that there is abundant time ahead for ratification meetings. No doubt there are half a thousand recruits en route to Arizona, to take the place of the deserted and discharg ed. Some of these green hands Avill bo assigned to cavalry organizations, that have no horses, and Government has made no regular or special pro vision for the purchase of animals. It will take tAVO or three months for the recruits to get to their respective posts, and how much longer to get into position to fight Indians, depends on circumstances. It is best not to j calculate upon the complete destruc j tion of the enemy AA"ithin the next tAvolve-month. It is a satisfaction to half believe that Government perhaps comprehends the situation, and Ave never doubted its good intention in any caso. We have seen so much of this century-old system of draggling Avar and haggling peace Avith the noble red man, that nothing can star tle U3 into a fit of special joy or admi ration, but are ever studiously Avatch ful anl grateful on the subject in question. "That Bill." At San Diego we heard of certain bills pending in Con gress, some of Avhich are entitled "As soon as the bill passes ; " "When the bill passes;" occasionally, "If the bill passes. We are ail largely interested in these measures, and every crumb in the right direction, goes a good Avays The folloAving from a Washington let ter doubtless refers to one of the above "bills:" General Jno. C. Fremont and Mar shal O. lioberts are to be here this winter in the interests of the Southern f32d. narallei') Ivailtoad. Other nai ties interested hi the same enterprise sire already here, and it will (uie bill) doubtless go through the coming ses sion. I bcrin to think that there arc about as many indiA'iduals interested in that raiiwav as there are miles oi road a man to a mile, say. "Home Again." The Alta Cali forma thus announced tho return of its pet correspondent "S. M.," Avherc upon The Evening Termini, at Oak land, copies the notice, and adds the iollOAViug : The following notice of Mr. MoAvry is taken from The Arizona Citizen', published by Mr. Wasson, formerly connected AA'itli the Oakland Press, and a man ot tiutn and soberness : " Sylvester MoAvry's political move ments, like alt operations in Arizona, haAe proven disastrous to him and to his friends. Scared from the field liimself, he stooped to every low de vice to help Brady, but the result sIioavs his eftorts to have been una vailing, and he quits the Territory haA'iug simply sustained his reputa tion as an egotist, braggart and shame less liar. Election at Camp Tholvs. A correspondent sends a burlesque ac count of an election said to haA-e been held there on the 8th Dec, in conse quence of there haA'ing been none or dered there on the 8th of the month previous. The letter is of such length as to croAvd out too much matter of more interest now, hence it cannot ap pear at least not this week. Messrs. E. A. Pauly & Sons re ceived from the Julian mines, yester day, the proceeds of 30 tons of rock from the Hayden mine, crashed at Parson's mill-$l,500. This same firm sold a Tucson merchant on Monday last 1,800 Avorth of general merchan dise, and shipped 15,000 pounds of freight on the same day to other Tuc son parties.-San Diego Bulletin. 24th. Postal Innovations, &c. There is going to be more thorough service afforded and rendered by go-ernment and its agents, in the postal depart ment hereafter. Both the President and Postmaster-General haA'e been pointed in their recomendations to Congress on this head, and the press and people have been awake to the subject. It is reasonable to expect that the franking privilege will soon go by the board, and every innovation for the better, whether suggested at home or abroad, Avdll he adopted to the end that this branch of government shall best ser'e the Deople and at the same time sustain itself. We have seen samples of what the Postmaster General describes in the following par agraph, and believe its adoption by Congress Avill be a popular move : My attention has been directed to the neAv system of "correspondence" or "post cards," lately adopted by North Germany and by Great Britain, for facUitatrng letter correspondence, and already extensively used in those coun tries. The front face of the card is ruled for the insertion of the address, and bears the post-office stamp. On. the reverse side there is room for a short letter or message which may be printed or Arritten in pencil or ink. The advantages claimed by their use consist in. increased celerity and easo of business and social intercom munication, and by having always at hand the essentials for a letter. 1 res pectful recommend that authority bo given by Lvw for their introduction into our postal service, at the rate of one cent each, including the cost of the card, as a first step toAvard a gene ral reduction of our domestic letter postage. Ex-Goa Eichaid C. McCormick. Delegate in Congress from Arizona, anived iu this city yesterday from Tucson, and Avill resume his journey to wasnuigtou to-morroAV. ilis re election to Congress, by a majority of more than nine hundred, is an in dorsement of his fidelity and efficiency as a representative of AA'hich he has reason to feel proud, as the opposition against which he contended tln-ough the recent political campaign Avith such signal success, Avas strong, bitter and unscrupulous, and ovrey expedient usually resorted to by politicians of tho least honorable class to defeat an adversary, was employed aginst him. As a representative of the Territory of Arizona, m the Congress of the United States, Mr. McCormick has always been industrious, faithful and energetic, and the people of that Ter ritory have, in our judgment, done themselves good service, in again se lecting him as their Delegate. We heartily congratulate him upon the nattering commendation of his course in Congress implied in his triumphant re-election, and AA-ish him a safe jour ney to the capital.-NeAv Mexican, 9th.- Telegraphic Moxey Orders. The Western Union Telegraph Com pany have established a system by which checks or money orders may be drawn by telegraph. Any person Aho Avishes to forAvard money, without delay, may deposit the sum with fh agent at the office Avhere ho may hap pen to be, Avho immediately telegraphs the agent at the point where the mo ney is to be sent to pay over L t? amount. The expense is light, a tri fling premium, and the payment of the dispatch, being the only charges made. Mr. J. W. Strauchon, the Agent at San Diego, is now prepared to transact a limited banking busi ness m this manner. Han Diego Union. For Arizona. The shipment of large amounts of freight still continue over the Fort Yuma road. Messrs. A. Paulv & Sons. Gordon. SteAvart fc Co., and McDonald & Co. all for warded large imToices of goods to Tucson during the last two Aveeks. The business of shipping goods to Ari zona is now permanent, and ha3 ad ded greatly to the merchandising of this place. San Diego Bulletin, 24th. McDonald & Co. shipped to Tuc son another invoice of goods 4,000 pounds on Monday last, Avhich left .New York on the 16th or November. reaching San Francisco by rail, and shipped thence to this port by steam er. ban JJiecro Union, 'ssd.
