The revised census returns show Wyoming to contain a less population than Arizona, notwithstanding the great overland railway passes through the entire length of the former, and was exercising much influence there as long ago as 18G7. Early in 186S, the road was completed almost half way through the Territory, and at the close of that year had passed its western boundary. We have pass ed from east to west on different routes through Wyoming, and do not hesitate to say that Arizona is and will prove the superior Territory in natural re sources. With overiUU miles or rail way (over which the most observant of people are constantly passing) for at least two and one half years, Wyoming had in 1870 a population of only 9,118 ; without any railroads, flanked on the west by the vast and repellant Cal ifornia desert, and overrun within and on nearly all approaches to it hy active and merciless savages, Arizona in the same year had a population of 9,G58, and we are sure it has since in creased, by all accounts, as rapidly as Wyoming. In this connection, we may observe that recently a lengthy correspond-1 ence, dated Tucson, appeared in The New York Tribune, in which the population of this city was put down at 1,j500, whereas the census returns show in round numbers y,200. It evident the author of the letter had not been in Tucson for many years for the general tone of it was just and favorable to the Territory, though full of errors relating to locations of places and incidents thereto. From Soxora. We liave private advices from Sonora up to September 8, Avhich announce all "quiet" too much in a commercial and industrial se. Complaints of hard times ap pear to be general, and from appear ances, they seem founded on fact. The rains have been plentiful this year, ana tne rancners nave the promise of better than an avera crop. The Apaches are still on hand, and e as active as ever. It is a pity those philanthropic messengers to the savages could not have deferred their visit to Arizona until next year let ting Gen. Croak have twelve months to quiet the Apaches in his way All experienced men agree that fight ing them with vigor is the quickest way to make them want peace bad enough to keep it on their part. A delightful shower of rain fell on the evening of the 13th at Arizona City which, lasted three-quarters of an hour, and the .next day at noon the thermometer stood at 100 degrees, with close atmosphere. The Denver and Rio Grande rail- oad was graded ready for the iron for seventy miles, over two weeks ago, and the iron was being put down at from a mile to one and a half per day. FROM NEW MEXICO. Mr. Colycr'8 Visit and Apache Murders and Thefts. Las Cruces, New Mexico, Septem ber 12, 1871. Mr. Vincent Colyer, after paying a visit to that paradise of ladrones the Canada Alamosa Res ervation left for the far west to look up and have a pow-wow with Cachise and his clan. It remains to bo seen, though, what effect moral suasion and suavity of manner will have on the renowned Apache chief and his warriors. Some of our people who had quite a curiosity, and who wished to interview the great Apache philan thropist, feel somewhat disappointed when he departed without making a visit to this beautiful valley of ours. To signalize and celebrate the ar rival among them of so distinguished a person, a party of braves 'from the Canada Alamosa Reservation, made a flying trip to Lincoln county, and in the neighborhood of Fort Stanton murdered one of the most prominent citizens Mr. McPherson. Beinjr short for mutton, a party of said braves made a raid on Sefior Ascaratas' sheep six miles from here, but succeeded only in getting off with some burros. Heretofore these Indians have confined themselves in their murdering and plundering to the counties of Dona Ana and Grant; but it appears that the visit ot Air. Colyer was somewhat an incentive for them to extend their depredations over a larger area of country. . A correspondent of The New Mex ican states that the Indians who killed Mr. McPherson, were trailed for some distance in the direction of the Indian Reservation : and I have it from a most reliable gentleman who was over in that country at the time, that the settlers are fully satis fied that it was the Reservation Apa ches who committed the outrage. - However, sooner or later there comes a reckoning, and it reflects great credit on the peaceful intentions of the people of the counties of Dona Ami and Grant, that the score was not set tled long ago. It might be possible to make the people of these counties believe that the "moon is made of given cheese," but it will take some thing more than any one's suavity of manner, or, the brilliant diction of some of the Indian agents, to make our people believe that the Canada Alamosa Reservation is otherwise than a haven for murderers and a nest of thieves. MOVEMENTS OF TROOPS. Camp Grant, A. T. September 17, 1871. A detachment of 30 men of F Troop, Third Cavalry, reached this post at 3 o'clock on yesterday morning, under command of Lieutenant W. W. Robinson of Troop H. This detach ment will leave for Tucson in a few days. Permit me here to say that Lieutenant Robinson is an able, ener getic and reliable officer, and takes great pride in his profession. With due respect, the humblest private can ap proach him with ease and confidence. He graduated at W est Point in 18G9. Acting Assistant Surgeon J. A. Mul lan accompanies the detachment to Tucson, and has been with the troops in the field since their departure from Tucson, under General Crook. We find here the great Indian Peace maker, Vincent Colyer. I, of course, speak most respectfully. He arrived here from Camp Apache last Wednes day with an escort of cavalry under Lieutenant Bomus. What he has ac complished with the Apaches, or what his programme ior the iuture, 1 know not. Monday, 18th. Capt. Stanwood's Troop arrived here from McDowell about noon to-day. Plenty of Indians (" friendly ones) are around nere. A. white Has: ot " Peace " is floating in the breeze over the haystack. Tuesday, 19th. The detachment of F Troop, Third Cavalry, will leave for Tucson, in a few days. Vincent Colyer leaves for Camp McDowell this evening ; thence to Prescott to see General Crook es corted by Lieutenant Bomus, First Cavalry, and 15 soldiers. Crvis Vincent Colyer in New Mexico. What he has done, and tlie scope of his aw thorily. We find the following in our New Mexican exchanges : Camp Tulakosa, N. M., August 29th, 1871. Nathaniel Pope, Esq., Supt. of In dian Affairs Sir: Agreeable to the power conferred upon me bv the Pres ident, and communicated to me in the letter of the Hon. Secretary of the interior ot the 'Sid July, 1871, "that should proceed to New Mexico and Arizona and there take such action as in my judgment should be deemed wisest and most proper, for locahn the nomadic tribes of those territories upon suitable reservations, and bring. ing them under the control of the proper omcers ot the Indian department. assisted by yourself and O. F. Piper, Esq., agent for the Southern Apacht Indians, I have carefully examined the place and neighborhood at Canada Alamosa, where the agency is at pres ent located, and for several reasons. hnd the same unsuitable for a reserva tion. Assisted by the officers named above I have also carefully inspected the valley of the Tularosa and finding the same to possess most of the requisites necessary to a home ior the Indians it being remote from white settle ments ; surrounded by mountains not easily crossed : sufficient arrable lands good water and plenty of wood and game; 1 hereby declare the said val ley of the Tularosa b3ginning at the head waters of the Tularosa river and its tributaries in the mountains, and extending down the same ten miles on each side for a distance of thirty miles, to be an Indian reservation, for the sole use and occupation of the Southern and other roving bands of Apache Indians, their agent and other officers and employes of the govern ment; the laws relating to Indian reservations in the United States gov erning the same, until such time as the Executive, or Congress, shall approvo or set aside this order. 1 would therefore suggest that agent Piper be instructed to remove his agency and the Indians under his charge from Caiiada Alamosa to th Tularosa valley as soon as practicable aiter tne receipt ot this letter. The War Department having di rected the officers commanding the district of New Mexico and Arizona to afford military protection to such In uians as may uo induced to come in both on their way and after arrival at the reservation, the agency will be amply protected. And the department having authorized me to supply these Indians with whatever may be neces sary, you are at liberty to incur such moderate expenditure as may be ab solutely necessary to carry out the above instructions. Very respect- lully, your obedient servant. Vixcext Colyer, Commissioner, FROM TIIE COLORADO. Dry Season Hay Scarce and hvjh Value of Mexqmic Beans Improved Mining Ivosjjccts JJimjiess Personal,. Eiirenberg, A. T., September 10, 1S71. We have had no overflow of the Colorado for four years, and every thing is very much burnt up. Hay is very scarce and high priced. A large quantity of mesquite beans will be used this year, and their value will in the future be more appreciated They are now selling at $50 per ton. M. Ravena will return in a few days from Europe, where he has been to dispose ot Ins mine, and I under stand he has made an arrangement with an English company to work his mine, and that work thereon will be commenced this Fall. J. Frank & Co., the owners of the Constancia mine, have a mill on the road. His honor, Judge Reavis, has return ed and looks hearty and well. A. H. Whiting, of the firm of Hooper, Whiting & Co. and who is the New York member of it, is in town, and I understand will remain in Arizona, which leads me to remark that the business of the firm is daily increasing in Ehrenberg, and I shall be mistaken if this branch does not, one year hence, be their cluet business one. Thev have the government freight contract for all the northern military posts, and the many freighters in town make it quite lively. Legal Advertisements.
