Fires in Wisconsin States. and other Accounts or the Chicago nre can be read with composure compared with those of the fires raging in sev eral of the Western States. In Chi cago about sixty or seventy lives were lost and an immense amount of prop erty; in the other cases, the loss of life amounts to at least 1,500 and of property so great that no estimate has come to hand. Extensive and destruc tive fires have for several weeks raged in Minnesota, Iowa, Michigan, In diana, Ohio and New York, but Wis consin has been scourged far above all. The towns of Friendship, Brussells, Menomonee, Green Bay, Forrestville, Marinett, Mennekonne, Peshtigo and others have suffered se verely in loss of life and some of them are almost destroyed. Peshtigo, a' place of 1,749 inhabitants, is totally reduced to ashes, and more than half its people dead and suffering and the remainder destitute. Indeed so great is the number of dead and the gen eral suffering among the living, that the thought of losses of property is banished from the public mind. It is safe to say that no calamities by fire of such magnitude ever befell the people o this nation, as those of .which wo write; and indeed never was there such a loosening of purse strings and free outpouring of money and supplies, as are now going on in behalf of the sufferers. Up to the 25th of October, it Avas estimated that twenty-five millions of noney and supplies had been contributed and the good work was going on with profuse liberality. With all thac may be said of the grasping traits of Americans, their charitable ones are unparalleled. These great calamities bring prac tically to view the noblest traits of man, and show that deep down in the hearts of the mass of our people are living, available good qualities un tainted by selfishness. The San Diego Union is incom parably the most valuable daily news laper of its size of which we have any knowledge. It is almost a mar vel to us how its proprietors can af ford to give the public so good a paper under the circumstances, but we presume it is liberally patronized at home where it so justly deserves to be, for it is never one day unmindful of tho best interests of San Diego and all others tributary thereto. Ari zona people should patronize The Union, for it is zealous in their be half.

Will our exchanges please note the following fact ? The very few men in Arizona who are standing in with the lndiau King and savages and against the settlers, excuse themselves in this way : They say that there is no use to oppose Col yer' s policy for it will prevail, there fore the best thing to do is to act with him and make all the money they can; as there will be many chances to do so. This is a simple statement of the truth in the premises, though the de based toadies often vary the form but not the spirit of their excuse. Wo never envy men who crouch down and say to their official superiors kick us, spit in our faces, and de soise us as you will, but graciously permit us to do your dirtiest work and put somo money in our purses no matter how badly the public is out- rno-fid and robbed. No! such self- pronounced tools are not subjects' of ADVICE. Hardly a mail arrives which does not bring letters from some person asking about Arizona and our advico as to coming hither to engage in some occupation or business. With its moderate climate and vast area of hills, valleys and plains wholly un occupied and unclaimed, we can easily and truthfully give a tempting reply as to the Territory's intrinsic merits, but our advice must be to stay away, as any other would make us accessory to murder. John Montgomery, of the San Pedro, informed us some weeks ago that quite a large number of his friends eastward sought his advice on the subject and even wanted it to be favorable, but having helped to bury so many of his neighbors who had fallen by the murderous Apaches in his own neighborhood, and being an honest man, he emphatically objected to their coming to this graveyard. And so with other men. Excepting a few limited settlements, the whole Territory is unsafo for both life and property. It is idle and even crimi nal to make any other representation. Before the advent of Colyer, we could convey a hope to our correspondents that peace and safety would prevail here in a comparatively short tinie ; but since that date, in the light of his acts and boasts that his policy was the one that would prevail for six years to come, despondency has seized upon the mass of the people. Some of the best men are discouraged and anxious to dispose of what little the Apaches have not stolen, and get away where if the people are no bet ter citizens of the United States, they get that protection of person and property due them. We are pained to write thus when an influx of population is so much needed, but as before stated, wo would deem it a species of criminality not to let the facts be known. Colyer trav eled safely in Arizona under a strong escort of troops at tho public expense. Citizens cannot do so, nor should they, but Government should subjugate the savages so tney couia singly or in squads travel and pursue their avoca tions in safety. They ask no more and aro entitled to no less. At pres ent there is no safety' from savages over bv far the largest share ot Arizona. The Borderer, at Las Cruces, has recently struck the tune sung by the Santa Fe papers in honor of Pope and Piper, but seems a little cool 'on Col yer and Cachise. Probably Pope's piper has discovered that he fooled away his warm embraces on another Indian than Cachise, and that the latter has refused to disgrace himself by the proffered association, and hence tiie latest journalistic convert may have been instructed to not bo as sweet on Cachise as the Santa Fe ac commodations. There is a report here via the pro posed telegraph of the Texas Pacific Railway, that Pope cornered The Borderer innocent and repeatedly read to him the latter part of Act I, of Othello, wherein Iago impresses the Yenitian gentleman, Roderigo, with the importance of putting money in his purse, and in sheer self-defense ye man of the quill yielded a reluctant consent to act accordingly with sub stantial assistance. But this is doubt less a most base and false report, and as such we must brand it, for even Pope's winsome ways could hardly conceal from ye sharp editor, Iago's soliloquy wherein he says : Thus do I ever make my fool my purse For I mine own gain'd knowledge should profane, If I would time expend with such a 6nipe, But for my sport ana prolit. Wo shall promptly arrest all bad reports about The Borderer, notwith standing it first doubted Cachise's presence at Canon Alamoso, and by somo magic influence soon after helped to impress the public that ho was there, It would almost be fatal for Poper and Pipah, if they should not have Cachise ana the tact should be so established. Cachise evidently was careless of P. & P's reputation when pursuing his late labors in the San Simon valley and Chiricahua mountains. PIMAS KILL APACHES. Oh ! where now is the good old Col yer ? - The Pima Indians have again killed thirty-two Apaches near Camp Apache, and returned to Sanford on the 31st October with eight children as prisoners. They report none of their own party hurt other than that some of them got bruised by falling off their horses, tho fight being a running one on a rocky mesa. Our correspondent says and a letter to Sheriff Ott has the same statement that the Pimas recovered a wagon cover and some yellow blankets which tho Apaches had stolen from the whites they had murdered. Our correspondent adds Can't you take measures to have these Pimas indicted for this outrage ? As to this "business," we are willing to let Colyer & Co. work up the case. While we are just now and at all times anxious for the amplest protec tion and most iudicious assistance being given to all well disposed In dians such as tho Pimas and Papagos yet we shall not devote much atten tion to their interests until a reasonable share of safety is guaranteed to th self-subsisting, toiling, neglected, robf- bed and abused settlers. But truly here is another " outrage,' though not much larger than the on recently executed in Los Angeles byi white men, an account of which elsewhere given. We are of opinion that the comparatively good Pimas who earn their own living, watched with much interest the gratuities and extra kind consideration the saintly Colyer bestowed upon the murderous Apaches, and liko the Chief Miguel at White mountains, saw that tho most fiendish murderers were best re warded, and therefore determined to qualify themselves for gifts as quickly as possible. But alas for the credulous and common sense Pimas, their ef forts have been directed against Col yer's especial proteges. They should have humbly imitated him and turned their guns on the settlers as do the Apaches, in order to win favors from the well provided stores of Col yer. No, we can't assist in getting tho Pimas indicted. It is a species of filthy work which unfortunately there are two or three others who deem it their exclusive honor to per form, and wo aro not ambitious to divide such honors with men who seem to be destitute of even better aspirations. Probably a Fraud. It seems by our correspondence fr Camp Bowie, as well as other reports hitherto made, that the bruited firm of "Cachise, Poper & Pipah," with busi ness office at Canon Alamosa, and published to the world with such self- glorification and cordiality of em braces between the senior and junior members, is and was a fraud, and that as a matter of fact it never had any existence. For this reason we declined to give the alleged firm the ordinary business notice at tho time of its re ported organization. We had faith that Cachise would never condescend to go into "business" with Indian agents not even with the divine Col yer ; although wo well understood the anxiety of the paleface agents to im prove their credit by taking in with them the famous chief murderer of industrious citizens. That no injury may inure to any of tho parlies to the alleged new firm, we now state that it may have a genuine existence and if it so prove, we shall properly make the amende honorable, and notice its "business." In the mean time, Captain Russell will take notice that its' field of operations is likely to be broad, and that any interference with Cachise's part of the "business" will meet with prompt resistance and perhaps punishment. Hence our anxiety to deal fairly by the " outfit." Our accommodating Santa Fe ex changes speak of some murders and outrages perpetrated over that way by the " natives." It might be imperti nent to inquire what natives they so childlike and blandly refer to, and hence we 11 not do it. A crtn I on. R. C.
