Officers and men are benrling all their energies to complete the Post, a diagram of which ,-wo :havo received. - From all accounts it. will ha soon fmshed and one of the moat complete and comfortable in the "Teat interior. Indians furnish wood at 4.00 per cord and hay -tt $30.00 per ton. But for the necessity of building that post with soldier labor, scouting would have been vigorous from there, and will be when it is done. Col. John Green found nothing but wild Indians there not longfin the past, and now he. has a line post nearly done and many hundreds of Indians earning something and living quietly around him. It would be unreasonable to expect more labor or better results with the means at his disposal in the time he has occu pied. Special Orders, dated Prescott Dec. yo, direct the Commanding Officers of Camps Thomas, Grant and McDowell, to make details from their commands of not less than one commissioned officer and thirty enlisted men, and send them in to and through that portion of the Terri tory of Arizona bounded on the north by the Mogollon range, east by the reserva tion, south by the Gila, and west by the Verde; this being the country occupied by'the Pinal and Touto Apaches. These details will be relieved as often as cir cumstances may require, and at least one party will bu kept in tlie field from each of the above mentioned posts, until furth er orders. Thd country, within twenty or thirty miles of "Infantry Canp," will be kept thoroughly scouted over by the troops located at that point. hould citizens or Indians desire to ac company any scouting parties, Post Com manders are authorized to loan them arms, and to furnish them with ammunition and provisions. Latest News. We have the following private news from San Diego of Jan. 14th. The Prussians have advanced their batteries 1,000 yards and are now throwing shells into Paris. The opposition steam er "Wm. Tabor and the K P. T. Co's steamer Senator leave San Francisco to-morrow (Sun day). Fares are down to 5 in cabin, 2 on deck, and freight $1.00 ton. Gold in New York 110 1. Notes unchanged. The N. T. Tribune, in referring to the completed overland railway, de- claves that "it has givan the miners i the protection which 100,000 soldiers j could not",-and generally other vast advantages. "With this and like facts not theories easy of demon stration before Congress, it would seem to be its most obvious duty to in J some form subsidize the southern road. With inextinguishable disgust, we still find public journals advising against a policy, so humane and eco nomical. , , i: 'tW " Go to Mansfeld's News Depot for late and interesting papers and periodicals. IjETTER from prescott. The Citizen Appreciated Tlie, Miner and its Editor taken through a course of Jyprouts Weather Crops, &c, &c Prescott, A.T., Jan., 1871. Your subscribers in Pres cott wish you a happy New Year, and a successful one for the paper, which now comes regularly and is"appreciated by alfwho are really Arizona Cit izens, because tliey have an interest in the whole Territory and get in the columns of The Citizen, some knowledge of wliat- is done and doing in Southern Arizona, and at Tuc son, the Capital. The Miner has never had much of news items for its readers, from south of the Gila. None or very few ever saw The Arizonan, and until The Citizen was started we in Prescott knew little of vou in Tucson, i naa aeier mined to write you regularly a few lines, each mail, and made a commencement by you a letter just after election intending; to send another the next week, but my plans were upset and I may not be able hereafter to write as often as I would like, though a semi monthly letter may be as much as your patrons will care for from this correspondent. My first episte got badty mixed up in print, with your Adamsville letter, and The Miner alluded to it as a senseless letter from a 'big black, burly, boor,' whom The Miner had "previ ously convicted of lying." The Editor of The Miner has our thanks for his mild ( for him ) notice, and a few lines for his benefit, may, from such a boor as he describes, be excused, even if they read something after his own scurrilous style. Until the publication of The Citizen there has been no pa per in Arizona in which any of the misrepresentations ot The Miner could be replied to or refuted, and while I despise personalities in the newspapers, and believe in the proverbial saying, that "Personal abuse is no argument," I believe it is right and just to state a few truths in reply tQ the assertions of J. H. Marion, Editor of The Miner rather than by a longer silence to tacitly admit them all to be true. Marion's course as an editor since he has had charsre of The Miner has been dualistic. As a journalist, he has been remark ably sucessful in keeping up a good paper well filled with lo cal news, and always giving every encouragement possible to the settlers m the country, by constantly showing up our resources of every kind, invit- ins: emigration, investment of capital, aid to conquer our savage foes, and in oth.er legiti mate methods, laboring con stantly for the advancements the interests of all, unceasingly. and has been rewarded by a j constantly increasing subscrip tion list and h beral patronage of the advertising columns, and the praise, well earned, that The Miner is as good a local paper of its size as is published on the Pacific coast. As a politcian, he has pur sued the browbeating, oyer bearingj bullying, line. Heis from' New' Qr,leans, a. democrat, was a secessionist, is to-Bay an obdurate mourner over the '.'lost cause" and belongs to the rule or ruin party. He has had the only paper in the county, which has always been democratic, and having full sweep with no opposition, has had no toleration for those op posed to him in politcal senti ment. All territorial ofiicials appointed from Washington have been with one or two ex ceptions republicans, and con siderable of his support has been from their official adver tising. Our delegates to Con gress have all been in accord with the Lincoln and Grant administrations. Speaking within bounds, balf at least of his subscribers, and half of his pay ing advertisers are republicans, yet he has continually, persist ently, maliciously reviled and abused them all, for three years. Jb rom the highest Jb ed eral official to the humblest in dividual who has voted the re publican ticket, none have escaped his venomous billings gate. He has often apparently exhausted the vocabularv of epithets in his denunciations of the class refered to, yet m his next issue a fresh batch has in variably appeared, and where words have failed him he has manufactured phrases to ex press his utter hatred and con tempt of all who differ with him in opinion, until he is.gen erally admitted to be the most degraded, foul-tongued, malev olent, uncharitable, political editor on the Pacific coast. Every one desirous of mak ing Arizona his home has an interest in having good schools, churches and other adjuncts of civilization here, and not last or least good newspapers, and no community has ever re sponded more liberally $ian this to calls for aid to such ends. Certainly no class of people anywhere, ever so liber ally supported a paper that so scandalously rnisrepresented and vilified them,as the republi cans of Yavapai county have supported The Miner, and since the election of E. C. McCor mick in 1868, those who voted for him then, have been called Me Coimi elates "without regard to their political affinities and in addition to the regular doses of filth dealt out by him to Re- jjublicans, Marion has given the McCormickites plenty of the same kind of fodder with ' considerable more personality, . af to Son?,ora' ju, Mexico, for safety; and i -i r- , i J whereas, The safety of the lives and prop- ad nauseum. -Defeat teaches ' erty of the Citizens of the Territory im Marion noth i no- h e val Iio? fmm pcrativcly requires that these outlaws" stall J.U.U1011 iiounng , lie l.uiics Iiom b(J broughtto justice and punishment: the rums and pitches m again Now, theieiorc, I, a. v. k. safford, with mo?t dpfptf,nhlf mid mipn- Governor of the Territory of Arizona, wiinmoai uLitstcioie ana mien- hcrebv offer a reward of one TnOTJ durable rancor as the files of sand dollars 01,000 oo), for ti: ap The Miner since the re-election ni?in delivery of the afort jd j? n r ri -ii.-vt i Criminals to the proper judicial tribun..!

To read his writings 'one might suppose Marion to be a raving, bombastic, loud mouthed bullying man person ally, one whom those McCor micldtes would dislike to meet in the arena of words or blows. On the contrary he is as mild a mannered man as need be quiet in speech and behavior, drunk or sober, unless when excited by both political talk .1 a. , z x .1 unu uiutjiib suiriLS, unu even then is not considered danger ous. He will write about a mau m ine Miner m such; pointed terms that .the public: have no difficulty in under standing who he refers, to, call ing him liar, thief, and other pet names, and the next day will call on the party at his place of business and when re monstrated with for such action will take it all back as square as could be asked for, and hide himself under "glittering gen eralities," as "nothing per sonal intended," and as he is; a weak, sickly, rotten specimen.of mortality, he has got off so far in that - way. His sufferings from Yuma fern have ruined his bodily health and doubtless affected his mind to such aa extent, that he takes a morbid view of matters and things and does not consider that he should be held responsible for anything written by him when under the influence of the drugs and potions which, he in formed the readers .of. The Minec sometime since .consti tute a, large portion of his liv ing. , Lately there has been some talk of the estabhshment of a new paper in Prescott, and many who are neither republi cans, McCormickites, or boors, have expressed a wish to see it start, and promised to support it if it is a decent paper, say ing Marion's style has disgust ed them. The prospect seems fair and I hope it may not prove all talk. This is the first and I intend that it shall be the last time that I impose so much upon your columns in regard to any one person, un less it be concerning some office-seeker, and should Marion ever occupy-that posi tion he may be ventilated a little more perhaps. Miners and farmers were much encouraged by the fall of snow so early, hoping that be fore now, more would come on top of it, but now they begin to fear a continuation of the present dry weather, which would be almost ruinous to manv of both classes.
