It is not that rail roads are nioro certain than before to como to us, but that the time of their coming is better known and near at hand. Not -without good reason, wo affirm that within five years, the Air.ntie and Tactic, the loxae ud ! Pacific the entral Pacific's 6uu i Joaquin Valley, and Guayinas roads, ! will either be ic active opera tn -a j to far hrrd'jrs or upon dai- Tarri J lory Iri addition to thesa tho Denver i and LM rrsn i narrow g'i age railwiv will within two years pass down tho Bio Grando to El Paso on its way to Mexico City, not far beyond our east ern border, and possibly tho road now building south of Salt Lake City will havo reached the rich mineral region of northwestern Arizona, now so rapidly being peopled with miners of oxperienco'and capital. To us of tho southern, and Gila, and Salt Eiver soctionB, the Texas and Pacific and Guaymas'roads aro of most interest, and now it is of tho prospects of their construction, wo will make a few observations based upon facts within our possession. When in tho eastern cities, we talk ed railroad with all we met who were presumed to have means of knowing the real purposes of Colonel Scott and associateB, and without an exception received assurances that they intended immediate and activo construction. Officers of the road gave us these as surances, and in tho many public re marks tho chiefs of the company havo recently made both in the eastern and southern cities, like purposes were un conditionally expressed. In making these declarations, they do not put in any ifs or buts or other form of doubts and conditions. It is true that Bmall concessions of rights of entry into Shreveport with a little land for depots and shops are asked, but not coupled with any intimation that a failure to get them will defer construc tion. A largo party of skillful en gineers are located in San Diego and at work in the field, and President Scott, Chief Engineer Dodge, and other leading officials, aro soon duo there for tho purpose of giving the vork personal examination and direc tion. These officers havo just made an extensive tour through the south ern cities with which tho road is to have connections, and but one purpose was anywhere expressed, and that is for rapid construction. Combining the ability with ample cash, as these men do, taken into connection with their trunk lines and branches tending towards the eastern terminus of this southern road, wo think it preposter ous tc for a moment doubt their ex pressed purposes. In all their talks, they do not speak of any further legislation being wanted. Mr. A E. Horton of San Diego, who has spent several months in tho eastern cities on railway business, and has had fre quent and full conferences with the Directors, has recently returned with out a doubt of the early and rapid building of tho road. Regarding tho Guaymas road, which will connect hero or near hero, with tho Texas and Pacific, wo have this to. say : When in San Fran cisco lately, we had a special in terview with Agont Eldridgo for the English Company engaged in work ing up that project. Ho said tho ox act concessions expected by the com pany from Sonora wero not obtained, but ho believes better ones were, and ho intends to so report in person with- out delay. He believea tho company j will readily accept the ; concessions, j which are very liberal, and if so, he will return and continue to finish up the preliminaries to active work, in which event, he expects to visit Tuc son by next October. His visit here is to take a topographical observation of tho route from Tucson over the American territory to the Sonora point of intersection, and see what materials. v,, for the work are on tho n-.i - to take ate-- for ac- quiiing the nghi of way. Mr. El dride is sanguine of suocnm in btuid sng the ru.vi and of i -i gvmt vaW when built. He says tL a Sonora Con gress ivadJ jcon: hi propose aae ciuir to tL-t i-cdy, and that with very few exceptions tho people are enthusiastic for the road. All iu all, the railroad era in Ari zona seems near at hand. A few more years of waiting will be necessary, but we believe only a Yew. With railroads will come reliable peace and prosperity. General Sheridan on the Indian. It is pleasurable to have cor rect views fully verified by distin guished men from time to timo as their experience becomes more ex tended, and for this reason we h'ero present extracts from a recent letter of General Sheridan to the war Depart ment, upon, tho nature of the Hiowa Indians ; and what is said of himself will well apply to General Crook's position from first to last in connec tion with tho Apaches: Tho tribe needs punishment of the severest kind, and we are prepared and willing to administer it when ever it is deemed best by tho proper authorities. Had it not been for Col onel Hazon, who -represented that theso Indians wero friendly, when I followed their trail without missing it for a moment from the ' battle of the Washita" until I overtook them, tho Texas frontier would be in a better condition than now, and we would be free from embarrassment. Ho seems to have forgotten in his recent newspaper communication, when he censures the Government for not ohastising theso Indians, that when I had my sabres drawn to do it he pronounced them, in tho name of the Peace Commisioners, friendly. If I only had some authority to manage and punish tho Kiowas, I would not stop until I had caused them to re spect human life and the rights of property. As it is now, I must confess that I do not know what to do. Tho Government will not bo able for a much longer time to avoid tho do mands of progress and settlement, and must insist upon tho measures which will render every portion of our extensive frontier safe for a citizen to travel over or ocoupy. GOOD WORDS EVERYWHERE. It seldom falls to the lot of a public officer to receive such high and gen eral praise as Arizona's Delegate in Congress. His reputation extends into nearly every State and Territory. Colorado, one of tho most flourishing of Territories, has always admired his efficiency, and her press has often ex tolled him." Tho Rocky Mountain Herald, at Denver, of date June 29, has this just tribute to his value in Congress : Among the most, efficient and un tiring friends of the Far West, in Congress assembled, thero never has been anyone more active than Mr. McCormick, Delegate from Arizona. Ho favors every good measure for each of tho other Territories a3 well as his own. On tho thorough regula tion of the Indian question, as well as other "internal improvements," his head is always lovel and loudly heard from. Hope to hear of his. triumphant re-electiqn, next term, by that Terri tory. We take pleasure in assuring The Herald that its hope for his "tri umphant re-election" will bo real- ized. mRM rather with oasional showers of rain this week. 1 I. REAVIS. July 10. In tho matter of tho estate of Cavanaugh ; appeal bond of fered, and rejected by the' Court for informality. Isham Eeavis, Esq., fined 25 for contempt of Court; for reasons shown to the Court, the fine was remmitted. Appeal bond again offered to tho Court ; rejected on tho ground of in formality. The a. 'C- "- ' -a .'lira Tht en- timn's report of Probate Court pro ceedings in Yuma couaty. Our rea ders will observe the name of ?no Tsaari Keavis, and that said is t.i loi since was District Jug-.- .'id e 'i r' virr-; 1 one at Jar r.e was particularly zealous in imposing fines for contempt, and hero it appears Judge Bid well found him to be as contemptible an attorney before his court, as tho people did him as Judge on tho bench. The "reasons shown' for remitting the fine were an abject apology in open court and tho heart rending plea that ho could not raise the small sum of 25 and would have to go to tho jail where he formerly took so much delight in sending others for liko offenses, and one more reason charity induces us to not mention. The reduced character of Eeavis is further shown in his inability to get up a satisfactory 300 appeol bond re ferred to. Wo hope this may bo our last par ticular reference to this poor, despised and unfortunate creature. We only do it now to show how low a bad course of conduct will bring a man Had Eeavis been nearly fair and just in his position, he would to-day have been occupying tho honorable one of District Judge and member of the Supremo Bench; but with a blind and perverse stupidity or native " cussed ness," or a combination of both, he is so low in public regard that a lower grade is hardly in sight or thought. We aro assured that ho even quietly submits to bo told in open court, by a fellow attorney, that he is guilty of deliberate falsehood, as wo understand too, in his professional capacity. As a terrible warning to others of what a bad course will lead' to, we point to tho obdurate ex-Judge of the Second District, and wo assure him that it is done moro in pity than anger, because we fear ho is beyond redemp tion. Public School at Prescott. Tho Arizona Miner of July 6, has tho following : Tho second term of tho Prescott Dis trict School came to an end Friday last, and we are unable to say how soon another term will be commenced. Previous to closing' tho school, tho teacher Rev. Alex. Gilmore exor cised his scholars in various branches of learning, and, as wo were present, we can, with truth, say that, the an swers to Mr. Gilmoro's questions were prompt rind correct. Dr. Kendall, Judge Wm. J. Berry, Judgo H. W. Fleury and Colonel H. A. Bigolow, our very efficient Board of School Trustees, wero present and addressed the scholars. A suitable building for a school is needed here, and one such ought to bo procured. Tjte Washington Star of June 25 has tho following item: General Howard's delegation (nine in number) of Coyotero Apache3, Arivaipa, Pinal, Pima, Papagoe, and Apache-Mohavo Indians paid a visit this afternoon to Govornor Richard C. McCormick, delogate in Congress from Arizona, at his residence, No. 1015, 14th street. They wero first treated to somo sprightly airs on tho piano, after which Govornor McCormick and General Howard spoko a few words, which wero interpreted to them. Mi guol, tho great Coyotero-Apache war chief, Santo, of the Pinal-Apaches, and Es-kel-ta-see-la of the Coyotero'a responded, promising to use their in fluence in behalf of peace between their tribes and the whites. The Meter of last Saturday is very jubilant over the welcome rains. Its weather item closes this way : Crops are looking well and growing finely. Every night brings heavy dews. Another such a fall of rain as the recent one, and scores of rockers, sluices, etc., will be in action, washing out gold. Since writing tho foregoing,, we learn that the amount of rain that has lLu hjr -o far this monnth, x net fur iron- thrue inches, and it will j be sten, by the table published else- vher , chat Jux,. gave fall of 1.24, -"hion is not bad :ru.-r three years of i partial Jrouth.
