A New York World dispatch, from "Washington, purporting to give ex tracts from and an abridgement of the General's report, has occasioned much acrimonious criticism on the whole document.

Stoncmaii's Avhole re port Avill shoAv The "World's dispatch to be as greatly at fault.

The San Diego Union, of Feb. 16th, says Pauly & Sons are receiing freight for shipment to Aiizona via the Fort Yuma Turnpike by eA-ery steamer. They send forAvard 20,000 pounds this Aveek. This is an encour aging sign of the times. The Northern and Southern Pacific Eailroads must be aided and built. The protection of our miners and other settlers in the Territories imperatiely requires them. "We ought to giAre the next ten years to the construction of those roads. N. Y. Tribune. LETTERS FROM PliESCOTT. AH About the Immensely Rich ' Strike' of Gold ami SilArer Mines in Bradshaw Mountains. Prescotx, A. T., Feb. ad, 1ST1. 'Tis a long lane that hath no turning' and after the dullest fall and AAinter Ave have ever known Avithin the mem ory of the 'oldest inhabitant' of Prcs cott, a great sensation has stirred us up during the week ending to-day. It happened thus a party of four expe rienced miners have been prospecting south of the BradshaAV mountains for some weeks past, and at last 'struck it' near the head ot Humbug creek, in the shape of a large vein of sih-er bear ing galena. They examined the A'ein carefully, chose their portion, made their locations, and then took their tools and dug a hole about three feet deep on the lode, and from the ore tak- en iiom the hole loaded their animals, and came to Prcscott, bringing 400 or J 500 pounds of the best silver ore over j seen in this locality. All the miners I here Avho knoAAr anything of silver ores, were sure it was good at first sight, and all aa'Iio understood the process Avere allowed to take their pick of sam ples for assay and Avorking tests, and the results of half a dozen such trials of the aArerage ore, Avere yields of from :il, GOO to $1,050 of pure silver per ton. One of the richest samples, Avorked by i melting, gave 11,900 per ton in sil ! ver. These products AA'ith the state ! ments of the fortunate discoverers that the A'ein oil the surface Avas from 8 to 20 feet Avide and plain to be seen for 2 miles or more in length, roused the dormant blood of the oldest prospectors in town. Messrs. Hammond, Morland and their companions came to toAvn on baturday, the 28th insfc., and the ore tests Avere made that day and Sunday, and from ilonday morning till Wedn esday night a string of horses, mules, jacks and men lined the trail leading towards the Eradshaw. Laughable scenes were enacted, and great the de mand for riding and pack-animals. Of those Avho knew the country and had located in the neighborhood on silver A'eins in many stood not upon the order of their going but left on Monday Avith some neAV-eomers in their train; others aa'Iio haA'e pooh poohed at every littla stir for the last four years; stole away quietly after Monday night had set in, and Avhen such AArere found missing on Tuesday morning, others caught the foAror una followed on, till on Wednesday it seemed that the toArn was nearly deser ted. Tne exodus from Tucson for the Burro mines last spring Avas some thing in the same line I presume. There is a good caus for this excite ment in the.fact that this lude is situ ated in the immediate A'icinity of the immense silATor bearing lodes on Silver Mountain, Avhich were discoA'ered and located in 1SG5, and are as large as the lodes in the Burro mountains, though the average assays from them, made here and in San Francisco, Avere not rich enough to induce capitalists to venture into an Indian country, and the locaters being poor men, little has been done toAvards developing the lodes though in any other country, such prospects on the surface as from 12 to tf2Gy per ton, in silver, from lodes varying from 20 to 150 feet in AA'idth, and cropping out 10 to 20 feet above the earth for more than a mile, Avould haA'e caused an outlay of thousands on thousands of dollars to open the Areins. in the expectation almost certain to be reAvarded of finding: richer ore at loAver depths. But here in Arizona, ' something of extraordinary richness must be found and plentj' of it before ' the outside barbarians will believe in our report of the land. So when this j A'ein, AA'hich is named the Tiger, turned j out ore Avorth over $1,000 per ton, 'tis I no Avonder that the old 05ers aa'Iio -lo- I ca ted the Mammoth, Marsh, Antietani, , Huff, SnoAvball and other lodes in Sil- ' ver Mountain, wliiclithey have shop- j herded for fiA-e years, thinlunir their time is coming, concluded to rush out and protect their claims from jumpers during the excitement. So they went from among us. When they come back if their reports are good or bad, you shall haA'e a line or two on- the point from H. PliESCOTT, Feb. , 10th, 1871. Last Aveek the Tiger lode excitement Avas the foundation of my epistle and jmr suant thereto I must continue in this. Several of those Avho lefttoAvn betrvveen tAvo days, early last Aveek, have re hired, and contrary toall expectations all tell the same story thus: The original Tiger is a magnificent success i the lode or vein has been traced by skillful prospectors for nearly eight miles, for more than two miles eArery foot has been taken up, on half a dozen claims, shafts have been started, and in every instance good ore has been found, and in at least two locations the OAA'ners and others believe their pros pects are better than those on the dis covery claims. Those Avho did not get satisfactory locations on the Tiger, struck put into the neighboring coun try and discovered and located on sev eral other silver bearing veins Avhich promise well, although not as large, long, or on the surface as rich as the Tiger and named them the Tigress, Lion, Lumb, etc. Oui townsman, W. C. Collier, has declared his intentions to move all his household goods to his claim on the Tiger, and camp there till he gets all the. silver he Avauts. Mr. C. has for seven years, spent all he could make in other Avays, in prospecting for quartz, and feels sure that he has got his for tune before him now. It is asserted by interested parties, that ore amount ing to several hundred pounds in Aveight, taken from different locations on the Tiger, carefully sacked and marked, Avill be sent to San Francisco to be Avorked for both silver and gold, in order that operations may be started understandingly ; though persons ac customed to the smelting process, say there can be no question of the expe diency of erecting small furnaces, and commencing paying operations at once. As a portion of the vein runs through heavy pine timber, charcoal can be made on the spot, and if the size and richness of the vein continues doAA'n into the d3pths of the earth, there Avill be in time, a flourishing toAA'ii. Anti cipating such results, some enterpris ing parties have already laid off and claimed a town-site near the mine, hoping doubtless to realize from the sale of corner lots after awhile, and if the ore is carbonate of lead as stated by parties professiug to knoAV, and the Tiger furnishes plenty of it, a state of things similar to that at Eureka, Ne-A-ada, may arise at the foot of Brad shaAV Mountain, smelting may become a permanent business, teams that freight our provissions in, may go out laden with sih'or bullion, and the OAvn ers of feet and town lots bj happy. Kothwithstanding the sibver fever, the gold bearing veins are not aban doned on the Brad maw Mountain, or elseAvhere. Reports from the Del Pas co, Avhich has been the leading trump in our mining circles during the past feAv months, from the mines on Lynx Creek, and the Eugenia on Big Bug, (from the latter, the Big Bug Mill has been crushing ore constantly for the past year,) are more encouraging this Aveel than ever before. So our quartz mining population is jolly, AA'hile the placer miners and farmers are praying for snoAV and rain, either or both. H. Hox. K. C. McCokmick, it seems from notices going the rounds, has made another powerful speech on the Indian ouestion. We take the following from The Rocky Mountain 'ews, at Denver, of Feb. S : Mr. MeCormick, the Delegate from Ari zona, seems to have made an admirable speech in the House, on the Indian question judging from the brief notices of it Ave have seen. He made just those distinctions Avhich eastern men find it so hard to recog nize, and advocated the kindest treatment of those Indians aa'Iio are inclined to peace, and at the same time the most vigorous measures against those Avho persist m hos tilities. He protested against the common habit of eastern people, in charging at eve ry case of outbreak that the Avhites have been the aggressors. He said he knew the fronticrsnieh, and they are eager for peace and friendship with the Indians'. He thought if Congressmen Avould consult the Territo rial Delegates on Indian alfairs, they Avould understand them better. Mr. MeCormiek's speech is said to have made an excellent impression on the House, and Ave hope it may reach and enlighten many of the peope. The Herald (Deiner) of Feb. 4 says Avork is commencing on the Denver and Rio Grande railroad, via Pike's Teak, Santa FS and d0A u to El Paso.
