Small oranges are quite plentiful in town at four for 25 cts. TriE public generally should heed the Adjutant-General's order, published in The Citizen to-day. Within eight days, five grown persons have died in Tucson, and we are informed in each case the cause was pneumonia. Cottonwood and willow trees in front of town are putting forth green leaves, and the grain fields are quite green. Bkief history of the San Pedro settle ment, by John Montgomery, will appear next week. District Court meets next Monday, but it is quite likely the cases set for that time will be continued until the Monday follow ing, when the regular term comes on. . Quite a large party of legislators and military officers visited the old mission church building of SanXavier, "Wednesday last. "Ajax," of Camp Thomas, is informed that even meritorious letters will not ap pear in TnE Citizen unless accompanied by the name of the author. Thirteen rounds were fired from the cannon on the parade ground, by order of Col. Dunn, commanding Camp Lowell, on Wednesday last, in honor of the birth of Washington. The Santa F(j Post of Feb. 14, says : Mr. Carson, of New York, who passed through our city a short time ago, shipped a fifty stamp mill for the Ralston (Burro) mines, on the first of this month. The finest lot of bacon, shoulders and hams we have ever seen in an interior town, were those cured by Hon. Reese Smith, at Tubac, aud sold to .Messrs. Lord w Wil liams yesterday. J. S. Mansi-eld, of the Pioneer News Depot, h is a line supply of periodicals and, current newspapers, in different languages. Greeley's Almanac for 1871 is a very valua ble statistical work. It embraces the na tional census of 1870. Several large loads of lumber have just been received at the Tucson Depot on Government account. It was brought from San Francisco via Guaymas. Government could do just as well aud we believe better here say at the Santa Rita mill. Adjutant-General Hughes intends to call in all Territorial arms, stamp and re issue them to those reallj in need of guus. For the convenience of those having guns at a considrable distance from Tucson, a special arrangement will be made. Delinquent taxes are, by the new law, collected upon summons and regular suit in court. The summons would have ap peared this week but for the District At torney's inability to get a copy of the rev enue law. Governor Bashford leaves for New York via California next Monday. During his absence, he will compile and superin tend the publication of the laws of Arizo na, and the journals of the late session. Snow fell in and about town last Wednes day night, for the first time in four years. It lay in places sheltered from the sun most of Thursday. Some of the old weatherwise residents say that a snow in Tucson is a sure sign of an early Spring and an abundant harvest and plenty ol fruit. The lands about Gila Bend are attracting much attention. Since the Legislature ad journed, Capt. John Owen, Hon. Win. Morgan and others have gone down that way. They have been lighting Indians at Tubac and vicinity until they are quite wil ling to seek a loealitv of more safety, and where labor can be done without a pair of .i 1 i i. i: i ruviiivurs anu ui cccu-iuauuig gun cuiisuuu ly on or near their person. The tri-weekly mail between here and Sau Diego is fairly in operation. Monday, Wednesday and yesterday the mails came as they should, and we have no doubt they will continue to come, so far as the carriers are concerned. If the San Francisco Postmas ter could only be induced to send our mail daily overland down the coast to San Diego we would be very acceptably served. Since the blockade on the Kansas Pacific railway in December, nearly all eastern mail has reached here via California. LETTEK thomas. Transfer of 'men from First to Third CavalryCol. John Green on an Indian Scout--f$uppIy Train from New Mexico Snow-bound Mat ters about the Post. Camp Tiiomas, A. T., Feb. 18th, 1871. On leaving Tucson, I promised to send you all the news I could gath er at this Camp, which I find is not much. Orders have been received here, transferring all recruits who enlisted in 1870, to the Third Cavalry, and there has been several desertions on the strength of it. The men are much dissatisfied at the idea of being left in Arizona. Col. John Green and Lt. P. S. Bo mus left here on the 15th, with 33 men for the Pinal mountains, on a 15 days scout. A train is snowed in about 30 miles from here, coming from New Mexico, freighted with, I' am told, general govei nment stores. Snow fell here to the depth of about two inches last Thursday, though the weather seems much wanner than it was some days ago. The post has at last been removed to the high mesa, about half a mile from its original site. Each Troop of cavalry is quartered m eight log houses, the two Troops facing each other, and B company of the 21st Infantry in five houses in rear of Troop M. The camp is laid out in rli': form of a square, and presents much-thu appearance of a small town, and will probably, in a short time be one of the finest posts in Arizona. A new commissary build ing 30x100 feet, or thereabouts, has j ust been completed . It is built of logs sawed in halves and placed on end, the foot being set about three feet in the ground, making quite a substantial building. SOME 40 pack mules have been ord ered to Pinal Mountain to take the place of those lately stolen from gov ernment by the Apaches. Should the Apaches continue stealing government stock and stores, some evidence of their thieving operations may get into the War Department at "Washington, and probably be felt at the Treasury De partment. If government stock herd ed by troops .tre not safe from Apache thieves, how can it bo expected that stock of a farmer or teamster will be t v Upox a petition of the citizens of Maricopa county, the Governor has made the following appointments : W. A. Hancock, Sheriff ; Horace Stinson, District Attorney ; J. L. Mer cer, Recorder ; Geo. E. Mowry, Treas urer; C. W. Grey, F. A. Shaw, M. P. Griffin, Supervisors ; J. T. Alsop, Pro bate Judge. The Democratic members of the Legislature met in the Court-house on Monday evening and appointed a Ter ritorial central committee consisting of Messrs Marion, Eountree and Peeples of Yavapai; Spann and Goodwin of Yuma; Bull of Mojave; Thomas Bar num and Grey of Maricopa ; Hinds, Bennett and Anderson latter at I1 lor ence of Pima. Tile two cavalry companies station ed at McDowell are required to be ready to march for California by the first of March. It is rumored that four companies of the 2 3d Infantry are to come to Arizona. California has been favored Avith fine rains, and crops are reported look ing well from Siskiyou to San Diego. A few Californa apples, brought by stage, have been retailed out at 75 cents per pound. Mail carrier promptly arrived, as usual, from "Wickenburg this morning, but brought no Prescott mail. Fixe property for sale or rent on easy terms at Adamsville. See owner's advertisement to-day. Governor Safeord leaves for a short visit to Arizona City and San Diego next Monday. DIED. In Tucsou, February 18, 1871, of typhoid pneumonia, John Preston Prentiss, aged 30 years. From Judge Meyers, we learn that de ceased was a native of Charleston, S. C. Prior to the rebellion, his family removed to Philadelphia, Pa., and engaged in mer-i eantile business, and he was connected with blockade-runners, but in the main did not ' succeed well, lie has been employed part. ! of his time in Arizona as a photographer. : The late Daniel H. Stickney. Just as the matter for our paper last week, was about all made up, the death of Hon. Daniel H. Stickney was announced. Since that time, we have conversed with several of the oldest residents who have been somewhat as sociated with deceased on business in Arizona, and regret to say that but little accurate knowledge of his history is known to them. Prom all sources consulted we gather about this which, seems authentic : About 59 years ago, deceased was born in Massachusetts, and, with his parents, at an early age, emigrated to Mobile, Alabama, where ho married and as nearly as we can learn had two daughters. The family were there engaged in mercantile pursuits. Ear ly in the gold excitement of California, he found Ins way thither. At one time on Kera Biver, he, with others, was engaged in successful merchan dising, but owing to liberal credits to miners upon poor claims, and the man agement of his partners, lost every thing. About 185S, he reached this section of Arizona, and since has been twice engaged in mercantile pursuits, once in a hotel, always more or less in prospecting and manipulating mines, and every session except the Third, was a member of the Territo rial Legislature in the last, was Pres ident of the Council, and filled the chair until a very few days prior to his death. He was once justice of the Peace in Tucson, and adjutant-general of Arizona. In a business point of view, his ca reer in Arizona did not average suc cessful. He was ever hopeful, full of determination that he would succeed, esteemed honest, and always regarded worthy of publio and private trusts He was very companionable, inclined to mirth, tenacious of life, and up to nearly the last moment would not ad mit his failing condition. During the past several months, he appeared to be rapidly declining in health, and the remark was common that he could not live much longer. Dr. "Wilbur pro nounced the cause of his death, pneu monia. His funeral was largely at tended. Father Jourvanceau recited a prayer, Dr. Phillips read the pro ceedings of the Council, and Judge Cartler and Col. Dobbins each made remarks at the Council Chamber, from whence the body was followed to its last resting place in the Military ceme tery, by the Largest cortege wo have ever seen in Tucson. Dr. John H. Phillips impressively read the funeral services at the grave. In addition to all these tributes of respect, the Council on Saturday, pass ed and placed upon "its records the fol lowing proceedings : Whereas it has pleased Almighty God to remove from among us, while in the discharge of his public duties, our friend and associate, the Hon. Daniel H. Stickney, late President of this Council, who departed this life, at his lodgings in this city, at 1 o'clock p. m. yesterday, after a short but painful illness ; and, whereas it is our desire to pay a fitting tribute to his memory, and to testify our respect and esteem for him as a public servant and as a private citizen, and to write in the journals of this Council a record of his virtues, be it therefore, limited, That in the death of Hon. D. H. Stickney, the Territory of Ari zona has lost one of its oldest and bravest friends, the community in which he lived a kind and genial com panion, and this branch of the Legis lature or whicn ne was tne presinmg officer, an honorable and just member; that while the flowers we bring to the grave of our departed friend and com panion are gathered by the wayside and are sad, we scatter them in kind ness as emblems of our affectionate re membrance ; that in further token of our respect and esteem for our departed friend and fellow member, the mem bers of this Council wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty days; that these resolutions be entered at length on the journal of this House, and copies thereof be furnished by the Secretary to the newspapers of this city fcr publication. Messrs. A. Pauly & Sons, the well-knowu wholesale and retail merchants, have sent over the road to Tucson, since our last is sue, nearly "JO, 000 lbs. of freight.
