At- least three distinct lots of property havo been re covered by purchase from the Grant Indians, all of which were stolen in this vicinity since Colyer's pompous arrival and despotic career in Arizona. We believe Colyer boasted about the middle of his proceedings in the Terri tory, that his expenditures on the Apaches that far, had cost about $40,- 000 of tho peoples' money, and we have above given tho incidental ex penditure of life and property justly chargeable to his account. Such are the points of the Rev. Vin cent Colyer's self-proclaimed Apache peace in Arizona. What does the country think of it? Would o friends of the press abroad want such peace in their neighborhoods ? NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. ORDER 5Td. l.-BY-LAWS. Prom a loig report in Tho Las Crueos Borderer, it seems Cachise is on the Alamosa Reserve, or the editor of that paper :s deceived. He made a visit to the Reserve, and on his return gave columns regarding the interview, and with such detail that we incline to believe he is not mistaken. If other more important matter does not in tho meantime accumulate, we shall next week give The Borderer's report so far as it relates to the main subject. That paper is still severe on Colyer, and charges him with a total disregard of the Indians' true welfare, and that if his recommendations bo carried out, tho Indians now at Alamosa will boldly take to war in a horrible man. That paper's opinion of Colyer, taken in its practical sense, is that he is a most base hypocrite regarding his friendship for the Indian which, if true, certainly makes him an enemy of mankind. The Borderer says there are between 8QP and 1,900 Indians on the Ala mosa lteserve, and its tone indicates a belief that if treated right they will stay there. But what does our co- temporary think about their raiding or not raiding on the settlers round about? We think that by next Spring if not earlier many will re turn to the work of Avar ; and this be lief is based upon often repeated Apa che history. All agents or officers are not as bold as Lieutenant Whitman in declaring their selfish aims, but re suits will tell whether thoso in New Mexico havo different purposes than the royal lieutenant at Grant. In tho meantime, we know that Ari zona is overrun with warring savages The works of theft and slaughter go on all tho same as if Cachise were leading his fiendish hosts. Wo would lad to have some reasons for shouting peace or its approach in Ari zona, but they don't exist.
