The following is the production of Mr. Francis Bret Harte, editor of The Overland Monthly. This 'plain language' was put forth about four months ago, and has done more to immortalize the author than any or all of his previous literary creations. In short, 'the heathen Chinee' is already an imperishable saying with all wherever the English language is spoken, and lately we see that a Chicago house has had this 'peculiarly' quaint gem set to music. Hav ing heard the Avords frequently called for, we take occasion now to put them perma nently on file in Tiie Citizen ofiice. " Which I wish to remark And my language is plain That for ways that are dark And for tricks that are vain, The heathen Chinee is peculiar; Which the same I would rise to explain. Ah Sin was his name; And I shall not deny In regard to the same What that name might imply, But his smile it was pensive and child-like, As I frequent remarked to Bill Nye. It was August the third ; And quite soft was the skies; Which it might be inferred That Ah Sin was likewise: Yet he played it that da-upon William Anu me m a way l despise. Which we had a small game, And Ah Sin took a hand; It was Euchre. The same He did not understand; But he smiled as he sat bv the table, Tbland With the smile that was child-like and Yet the cards they were stocked In a way that I grieve, And my feelings were shocked At the state of Nye's sleeve, Which was stalled lull of aces and bowers, And the same with intent to deceive. But the hands that were played By that heathen Chinee, And the points that were made Were quite frightful to see Till at last he put down a right bower, Which the same Nye had dealt uuto me. Then I looked up at Nye, And he gazed upon me; Then he rose with a sigh, And said, 'Can this be? We are ruined by Chinese cheap labor,' And he went for that heathen Chinee. In the scene that ensued I did not take a hand, But the floor it was strewed Like the leaves on the strand, With the cards that Ah Sin had been hiding, In the game 'he did not understand.' In his sleeves, which were long, He had twenty-four packs Which is coming it strong, Yet I state but the facts ; And we found on his nails, whi ch were taper, What is frequent in tapers that's wax. Which is why I remark, And my language is plain, That for ways that are dark, And for tricks that are vain, The heathen Chinee is peculiar Which the same I am free to maintain. About Advertising. This branch of the business of The Citizen is increasing as usual, and we intend to make it to the advantage of all who wish to take stock of that sort in the coucern. The paper will contain an equal amount of non-advertising matter on each page editorial, local, etc., and it will be a pleasure as well as a matter of business to look after any changes, improvements, additions, &c, -,1:.,,.. 1.., i,,,:,,o t ...i. 1U1U1U 1,111 Ul jMllUlU, l 11J HU1I oblige us and benefit themstlves olten by :ivmg us the items. Sfotas y Avisos para Ifuestros Lec tores Mejicanos. Homicidio. El Martes pasado, el Aljruacii J olm Miller inato do un i balazo :i Oreol Estrada. Este era un j hombre de rnuy mala faina, y resia condicion, quien on Agosto pasado, , tuvo el atrevimiento de cortav horri 1 blemente A una inucrer, tirandole la cortada desde lo mas alto de la cobeza, hasta lo mas bajo del cachete, dejando su cara, mas para espantar, que para apurecer ante gente. E.?to accntecio en el Fuerte McDowcl, de donde se sa be liabia venido este mal aventurado pueril ; y por iinformaciones recibidas concernientes a lo dicho, el Juez dio orden para que fuese arrestado y pues to en la carcel, inter se le ballaba su crimen y so le jusgaba por el gran ju rado. El Alguacil mayor, (Jhon Miller) quien es un lionibre de una disposicion firme, habia prendido si tal Estrada para conducirle al lugar destinado, cuando el conductor fue in terrogado de conceder el permiso :l lie gar a su casa, cerca de la plaza, a un lado de la Iglesia, y tomar su frasa da. El Alguacil so lo permitio no creyendolo tan astuto ; pero el prisio nero, mientras Mr. Miller le aguarda ba a la puerta, procuro un Spencer que liabia en la casa. Lo agarro y a tento matar a Mr. Miller, pero al pre sentarselo al peclio, quizo extraer el cartuoho, no sabiendo que cstaria ya cargada. A esto el Alguacil y el prisionero comensaron la mas temerosa luoha, y al mismo tiempo, el Alguacil gritando; " help, help" basta que por fin logro sacar la pistola que traia con- cigo (no babiendo tenido hantes lugar) e hirio al que lucliaba con el. Le dio tres balazoi antes de dejarlo insen sible, y hoy ya servini de ejemplo pa ra otros que tal vez hubieren querido hacer lo que ya el fmado Oreol Estra da, nativo de la Magdalena, liizo. E 1 Sr. Miller se ha entregado a la justicia para que se investigaran las circumstancias ante el jues Charles Meyers. Do aqui redundo que "Mr. Miller fuese retirado la causa, por haber sido justifioativo el asesmato. El Gobarnador Saffond ha espedido una proclamacion ofreciendo una re componsa de 1,000 a quien arcsto y entregue ;'i la propia corte de justicia, a Pedro Prieto, Tomos Sanchez y J esus Ortega, todos Mejicanos de naci miento.

Of all the Territories of the United States, Arizona has been, perhaps, the most unfavorably situated as regards the conditions of immediate develop ment. Diificulfcy and cost of trans portation, the hostility of Avarlike and cruel Indians, general ignorance on the part of the public concerning the great natural resources of the country, and the lack of capital to assist indus trial enterprises, have all combined to hinder the progress of this territory towards the wealth and prosperity wmen it is destined to attain, it is surprising, that in the face of such obstacles the mining history of Arizo na should have survived at all. The phenomenon is only to be explained by the fact of extraordinary natural advantages The evils to which we have referred are but temporary in their nature, and are already beginning to disappear, The Indian question is the most press ing; and that is not complicated in Arizona with any doubts as to the pro per policy to' be pursued. "Whatever may be said about keeping peace with the tribes of other regions, all parties are agreed that the only thing to be done with the Apaches is to fijrht them. If this is done vigorously, there can be but one result. They will be thoroughly subdued or com pletely exterminated. Next to this in necessity is the ac quisition of information concerning the resources of Arizona. Eecogniz- ing the fundamental importance of this measure, the United States Com missioner of Mining Statistics has de voted the greater part of the means at his disposal during the present year to an examination of that lemtory. The field-notes already received are in many respects highly encouraging. It appears that, buried in the depths of this remote region, there are mines and mills, managed with, economy and success, of which tue general pub lic hears but little. Tnough these en terprises are as yet but few in num ber, their very existence, under the adverse circumstances to which we have referred, is a proof of remarka ble natural advantages, which must afford a basis for extraordinary pros perity hereafter. For instance, the Big Bug Mining Company is working a mine about twenty-five miles fron Prescott, haul ing the ore one or two miles to the stamp mill, and regularly reducing the ore twelve tons daily, at a profit, in spite of imperfect machinery and excessive transportation. The ore at present extracted is decomposed and easily treated ; and the supply in view, of his quality of materials, is sufficient ly for two years' operation. Meanwhile, in each of three shafts massive sulph urets have been reached m depth, promising a permanent production for the future, though requiring a change, when the time comes, m the method of treatment. The business-like regu larity and economy of the operations of this company are worthy of high praise, and wo do not see why its prospects should not be considered both sound and brilliant. The Vulture mine, no one needs to be told, is one of the most valuable in the United States. "When capital comes to the aid of labor in Ar izona, we expect to see many other enterprises started into .life, as healthy and active as the two we have men tioned. There are many valuable mining properties around Prescott, but most of them are poorly develop ed; and the same is true of other mining districts in Arizona. "Wo hear the English capital is be ing largely invested this year on the Pacific coast, and that some of it has turned to Arizona. Let us hope that it will be directed with skill, and pru- dence so tllat no faiiures, due t(tlie stupidity or dishonesty ot managers, ghall be unjustly charged against the Territory, for which nature has done . u mueu, aiiu mau muierio so lime. !runm - ni, - .sw tvt,v; i New York, Dec. 6th, 1S70.
