General Field Orders No. 2. -It is the desire of the Government to ccn coi1 trate, at as early a period as pos sible, all the Indian tribes upon In dian Reservations. "With this object in view, a region of country known as the ""White Mountain Reservation," remote from settlements, lias been set apart upon which it is hoped, in time, all the branches of the Apache Tribe m Arizona, majr be induced to live Commanding officers, and all persons in the service of the Government are directed, by every proper means in their power, to disseminate this infor mation amongst the Indians, and also to give them to understand that should they not go and remain on this reser vation, they will be treated as hostile, and will be pursued and punished wherever found. In order to econo mize resources, systematize plans, and harmonize operations, the follow ing is published for the information of all concerned: The troops station ed at Camp Bowie will scout over and protect the country lying south of the Gila and east of the San Pedro Rivers ; those of Camp Lowell, are charged with the protection of the southern overland mail route ; Captain A. Mooiv and his Troop will scout over and protect the country lying south of the Gila and west of San Pedro Rivers, including alsothe settlements along the southern boundary of Arizona ; those at Camp Pinal, and its dependencies, will clear the country, of Indians, lying between the Gila and Salt Rivers, and the western boundary of the White Mountain reservation; Camp ilcDcWi 11 will scout over, and as far as possible protect the country lying north and west of Salt River and including the Sierra Ancha and Mazattal Mountain:'., the lower Agua Fria country, and the settlement on the lower Salt River ; Camp Yeido will be charged with the control and p'.otection of the region lying to the north of the Mazattal Mountains, and east of "Williamson's Valley, and more particularly with the section occupied by tne lonto Apaches; Camp Date Creek is charged Avith the protection of the mail route from La Pa to Pres- cott, as also from "Wickenbur to the ! Agua Fria, and in general with the protection of the country traversed by these routes ; upon Camp Hualpai is devolved the supervision and protec tion of the country lying to the Avest ot Williamson s valley, and more par ticularlv the eount.rv lvino- nlnno- flo : road connecting Hardy ville and Prts- ! and take away from them what men cott; to the Commanding officer of! nofc Ilavo then, but do have now, Camp Apache is specially assigned vou-would hear the most piteous moan the control and supervision of :illIn-iino and whining and complaining dians avIio so unon the "White Moun- cain Reservation, and particularly will i iiu unueavur 10 prevent any muians irom leaving the reservation AA-ithout 1 permission, for any purpose what- I soeA'er. . n j v.iv uiuio ui uiu auovu name;! posts, aviII see that the best use possible is made of the means placed j at their disposal, in order to the car- ! rying out of the above arrangements, but nothing herein mentioned will b3 ' construed as justifying other than a A'igorous pursuit of Indians, so long as j a reasonable hope can be entertained ; of their apprehension and punish- ; ment. GEOItGE STOXEirAN. Col. Com'dgDept. TItOOl'S IN ARIZONA. The official roster, bearing date of March 31, 1871, of troops in the De partment of Arizona, shows twenty live companies in the Territory of Ari zona. In this, we make a deduction of 'C and 'E' Troops of the 1st Cav alry, D' company, 21st Infantry, at Ft. Yuma, and only include those within our Territory. Of these com panies, thirteen nre cavalry, and twelve Infantry. Now it would seem fas if the twelve infantry companies should bo able to "keep house" or care for the twelve posts, and4" thus enable the thirteen cavalry Troops to give their attention quite steadily to pur suing: and punishing the savages. We will allow, however, that Paymasters and subordinate officers "on leave" for recuperative purposes, and trains with supplies, must have live companies for constant duty which is a large al lowance then Ave find eight compa nies free to -execute the admirable or der printed elsewhere. Will that many be kept so employed ? If not, then Ave will have to declare that too much idleness is tolerated, or a Avrong distribution of troops is maintained. We don't charge anything for hints, because they may be both Avorthless and impertinent, but if out of all the companies avo find now in the Terri tory, eight cannot be kept employed in punishing the hostile Indians the prime object df their presence then it Avould be apparently useless to in crease the. number. Fca and Johnston. It AA'ill be remembered that we pub lished sworn testimony regarding the bad treatment of these men by the Mexican authorities. The Washing ton County (Mo.) Journal of April 13, says: We have upon our desk a copy of AitizoJCA Citizex of March 4th, in which wo find the subjoined account of the arrest, imprisonment, and two tri als of tAvo young men, James Fea and Uriah Johnston, the first named a Avell known citizen of this county, and the latter also having been a former resi dent being a nephew of Judge J. B. Johnston, and a brother-in-law of W. H. Fergusson. These young gentle men bear unexceptionable character as industrious, peaceable, law-abiding citizens, men of unquestionable vera city, and their complaint is entitled to earnest, prompt consideration from the United States government. Then and Now. I think that the civilized world noAer was so happy in ancient times as it is now relatively, I mean, com pared Avith Avhat civilization is now doing. If you go back two thousand years, even, you will find it to be so. Men like to praise old times. They like to praise, for instance, the erood. old hearty days of England before King Henry VII. reierned. when there was simplicity, and Avhen there Avas a rude yeomanry virtue, and when men Avere gay and happy. I tell you that were you to take these men up, and carry them back there, and let them sleep Avhere men slept then, and let them eat Avhat men ate then, and let them do Avhat men had to do then. that over afllicted your ears.
