CAiiP Thomas advices are of late

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.

company any scouting parties, Post Com
manders are authorized to loan them arms,

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

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

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. H.
