THE CITIZEN. Price per Year, $5 ; Six Months, $3 TUC S O 3ST, ABIZONA Saturday, - Jan. 13, 1H72. PrDLIC attention is directed to the statement in this paper by the Terri torial Treasurer of Arizona. It will thereby bo seen that this Territory on January 1, 1872, was out of debt and a cash balanco on hand for. future pur poses of 3,313 2o. Can any other Torriffinr rnnl-n snrOi n. tinn shnwin"" ? The Territorial government has been in operation for nearly nine years, and the peoplo have been killed by the hundred by Indians, and their property stolen by them in like or greater proportion. Through this long siege of murder and theft almost without parallel in any part of any nation, Arizona has made some prog ress in taxable property and popula tion- r has kept her credit "giltedged," and now shows a cash balance, small as it appears, that probably no other Territory or State in the Union can exhibit. Does such a statement show a bad official rule ? with a tax of but 00 cents on 100. "We have not the exact figures of each county, but wo arc warranted in stating that, comparatively speak ing, the counties are in fair financial condition. Pima warrants sell at 8a to 90 cents per dollar. The Mexican bandit question will, wo think, soon get the attention of the State Department. There is a lot of ICickapoo Indians in harmony with the Mexicans opposite the Texas bor der, and Gen. Reynolds recited their Outrages to the War Department and asked for privilege to pursue them into Mexico, and the matter was referred by the Secretary of War to the State Department as a proper subject for its attention. This on Nov. 4, 1871. This business will soon get powerful atten tion, or we are much mistaken. M. 0'REJj.liEY, of Crittenden Sta tion, some 15 miles eastward of tow has been industriously trying to find water there for some time past. Th morning wo learn tnat ins well v down 1G5 feet,, and that he has struck! gravel. A couple of feet above, he passed through very damp pipe clay.. He is bound to go ahead till ho strik water which will be a treat advan tnge to the public. Five, hundred dollars in gold coi and passage paid also, of a reward lis offered for the delivery of Jame3 Outwater. defaulter, to the Oakldbid liankof Savings, Oakland, Californi; nis age is 31 ; height, 5 feet 4 inches ; thin of. flesh ; bald head ; dark hair, whiskers and eyes. Ho absconded about the middle of November, and nt latest accounts was still at large December 17. a special train of cars arrived at Oakland, California with six companies of United States Cavalry of the JTiftli Regiment, en route to Arizona, under command of Major E. D. Crittenden. They Avere taken on board tho steamer Idaho for - transportation to tho lower coast. January 9, Governor Safford ap pointed Charles W. Anderson and F, J. Thibault, Commissioners of Deeds, the former to reside in New York city, tffid tho latter in San Francisco ; also, on tho same day, he appointed Peter Doll a Notary Public for Yuma county, December 8, a leave of absence for six. months on surereon's certificate of disability, Avas granted Lieutenant Colonel Thomas Duncan, Fifth Cav alry.

Last week we referred to this sub ject, and since that The Miner has reached us with Register Eastman's official notice of the withdrawal from homestead and pre-emption privileges the odd numbered sections for forty miles on each side of the proposed route of the Texas Pacific railway The notice does not even approxi mately point out the belt of lands thus withdrawn, nor do we presume there was any legal reason that it should do so ; yet it would bo of ad vantage to the public to have some such knowledge. All settlers on even numbered sec tions within the undefined tract, can as before prdceed to j)rocuro litle, whh only this difference, viz : Instead of 1,25 per acre, they will have to pay 2,50 ; but those who filed their state ments prior to tho notice of with drawal, can undoubtedly prove up and pay at the lower price. 'or general information, we may as well state that some misaphrehen sion exists as to the price at which the law requires the railway company to dispose of its lauds. Many sup pose that the company must sell at 2 50 per acre, but it is decidedly an 'erroneous supposition as will be seen by the following proviso to sec tion 9 of the law: That all such lands, so granted by this section to said companjr, which shall not be sold, or otherwise disposed of, as provided in this act, within three years after the completion of the entire road, shall be subject to settle ment and pre-emption like other lands, at a price to bo fixed by and paid tol said company, not exceeding an average of two dollars and fifty cents per acre for all the lands heroin granted. "An average of 2,50 per aero all the lands herein granted" enable tho company to cuarcre v: much above tho apparent low li It would seem to bo to the plain terest of. the company not to exact very high price for lands inviting to actual settlers, for a thrifty population will enlarge its dividends more than unproductive soil however valuable. Still it will be well for settlers mak ing improvements Avithin the 80-mile belt to keep these facts in view. Thieving Indians have been lately seen in San Pedro Valley. About the 1st. instant five of them drove seven head of cattle towards Camp Grant reservation on tho east side of the ranches ; and a couple of days later, another party of three passed down on the Avest side of the river, Avith five head of cattle headed directly for Grant. They came from the direction of Whetstone Springs, and probably got the stock in Sonora. Ranchers must be on the their guard both for their lives and property. The time is happily short that Indians off reser vations can in any Avay plead peace ful or honest intentions, or bo treated ther than as public enemies. Ben C. Truman Esq. has sold his interest in The San Diego Bulletin to his partner W. S. Gould, and the paper hereafter Avill bo conductod in behalf of the Republican party. Who will bo editor is not stated. As an easy newspaper Avriter, Mr. Truman is good, and avo presume like most others Avho havo been in tho business, he will soon be announced.in connec tion Avith another journal. The Statutes and Journals of tho last Legislature, and also tho Com piled LaAvs of Arizona, all left Ari zona City by Uewsom & Co.'s train January 1, and ought to bo here Avithin one Aveek. Immediately upon arrival, Secretary Bashford Avill distribute them to tho several counties and parties entitled to them. Tick's Floral Guide for 1S72, is received at this office. What it is, may be seen by an advertisement in The Citizen. It seems to be an in dispensable Avork to all cultivators of flowers and vegetables, and the book itself is really an ornament for a par lor table. WEATHER is very mild hero now, Unhappy Mexico. ffb have reliable news from Guay ma3 up to Dececaiber 29, showing that tho State of Siraloa was practically in the hands of the revolutionists ; that Governor Pesqueira, of Sonora, was moving forward with 700 men, and that these reinforcements were htiinET awaited by Gov. Buelna of Sinaloa. Confidence is still expressed that tho Government will still main tain itself. from various sources, we learn that some of the Mexican States have de clared their independence, and revolts were rife in many. There is a lack of interest among tho masses for tho government. They can hardly be damaged much in property, no matter under what rule, and many feel that a change might better what all con cede is an unstable government. TVe learn that on tho 8th, Pirst Lieutenant A. E. Woodson, Fifth Cav alry, was at Maricopa Wells with Troop A, and Captain A. B. Taylor with Troop L, on their way to Mc Dowell. .Lieutenant Woodson Ave knew Avell years agone as a citizen, and all our reports of him since as an officer are much to his credit. In fact, i have various reports from all grades of authority, that tne Pifth Cavalry is finely officered, and AAre as sure them that all the reports to the contrary by disgraced officers, Avhoni Ave have not hesitated to note by naine, The Citizex is and aviII continue their jealous and zealous friend in all jus service. The Indians havo about all left Camp Verde. C. C. Bean, Esq., re turned to Prescott on tho Gth, and re ported but ten "noble red men" on tho reserve. Colyer and his friends had better petition to have that re serve enlarged, as fifty or some more miles, squire may too much scrou the remaining ten. Six Troops of the 5th Cavalry are now in Arizona probably at Mc Dowell by this time ; and five more left Oakland for here on tho steamer Idaho, December 17. NEW; AD VERTlSh 'MENTS.
