Whether consid ered in a private or public sense, it reads well and wUl pan out better in practice. If any man thinks it is mero fun to run a newspaper, a short trial will convinco him of his error and that it is a vexatious and costly business at least as much so as that of average occupations. No man shall ever have the support of The CITIZEN" or more partisan grounds. As several times before stated, this paper is and will be political but never partisan in our hand3. Muoh that The Miner says is specially applicablo to its own affairs, and it is particularly that which relates to the publio at large which we commend to our rea ders. Here, is the article, except the introductory part referring to national parties : At home, in tho Territory, certain persons are preparing to harvest the offices in November next, but parties are as stiff as frozen snakes, and op posed to moving or contorting in tho interest of tho office-seekers. Tho fact is, long suffering at tho hands of Indians; the neglect of Government ; drouth and other drawbacks, have given our people something more im portant than politics to think and talk about. Yet politics will be forced upon them. They are forced upon us every day. Unfortunately for our peace of mind, wo havo been in formed that wo are Chairman of tho Territorial Democratic Central Com mittee and a member of tho Dem ocratic Central Committee of this county, and that wo ought to "buckle on our armor." Bosh ! wo have grown tired of politics, in a Terri tory like this ; have never- asked for those positions; want no offico; believe in electing tho best men to office and not such, as have generally been se lected by conventions. Then, why should wo neglect pressing duties to labor in the political vineyard, for persons who hold their mouths open, ready to swallow all the juice of the grapes ? Wo can't toll; nor can you, reader. Again, Tho Miner is an independent paper, bound only to labor for the greatest good to the greatest number of tho citizens of Arizona, regardless of religion, politics, dress or standing, and for its editor to turn its guns upon one-half its supporters, at this time, when they have no newspaper battery with which to return our fire, would be unjust and unwise, in. us, and wo shall not do it. So, if there bo thoso who wish us, as Chairman of a mythical Territorial Democratic Central Committee, to squander our time and means in rally ing and fixing for their entry into of fico, we beg such war horses to cease their snorting, cool down and put their own shoulders to tho wheel, as we are not on it, this year, at least. But, tho offices will havo to bo fil led, and we leavo it to our readors to say in what way candidates for offico will be selected. It being yet a free country and the pickets having rotted out of old party lines, our plan would bo to let evory man whom tho spirit may move to run for offico, get up and g6 it whilo ho may. By-and-by, when tho Territory be comes moro thickly settled; when peace with tho fiendish Apache savages shall havo been established, and new political parties shall havo been form ed, in place of thoso now in process of destruction, Tho Miner, if it shall thon bo under our control, will bo found working shoulder to shoulder with good men, for what it will thon think to be right and patriotic. Till then, its constant aim will bo to mako known tho wants and resources of tho Territory; denounce wrong and wrong doers, encourage tho right and ap plaud all citizens and soldiers whose efforts shall be directed to freeing Ari zona from savago enemies and con necting hor by rail and telegraph with the business centros of our country. Hichabd M. Habgbave, who kill ed Iirnacio Eubio on July 1, has been - i found guilty of murder in the first de- j gree, and by Judge Tweed sentenced r to be hung at Prescott on tho 6th day 1 of next September. j THE GUAYMAS RAILWAY. Late advices from Sonora confirm the news that liberal concessions have been granted to tho English company which has been preparing tho way to construct a railway from Guaymas to tho Arizona lino. As stated by us last week, the concessions sought were not given, but it is still believed moro valuable ones wore. Tho people must be quite united in favor of tho project, for Congress in extra session, June 26, was unanimous on tho subsidy ques tion. As originally reported to us, tho action of tho Sonora authorities wore held to bo final, but later ad vices say that a State Agent has been appointed to proceed to the city of Mexico and procure the approval of tho Supreme Government ' to the act of concession. But it is not doubt ed that prompt sanqtion will bo ob tained. Bonds as originally sought by Agent Eldridgo, wore not given, but in lieu thereof more land. Tho land grant is thirty-five sections to the mile, and may bo extended to one-half tho State's lands. The estimated amount of public lands varies from 4,000 to 6,000 square leagues. Tho State has agreed to givo her bonds (to what ox- tent, wo aro not advised), to tho com pany upon the completion of the road to Hormosillo. Ab represented to us by Agent James Eldridge, and also by intel ligent parties in Sonora, tho prospects for railroad connection between hero and Guaymas seem no longer doubt ful, nor will wo have to wait many years to witness the coming and going of tho iron horso on tho route, unless tho Stato of Sonora should bo in volved in something liko hopele33 rev olution, which now appears improb able. COLORADO RIVER NEWS. Taken from Tho Sentinel of July 20: The steamer Cocopah, Capt. Mel Ion, arrived from Port Isabel last Sunday, with 300 troops, and loft for Port Isabel tho next day. The Cocopah, with Barge No. 3 in tow, arrived last Thursday evening from Port Isabel with freight from tho schooner Alice Haake. The same boat left this morning for Mohavo, taking freight and a good list of pas sengers. The Mohavo, Capt. Thorn, from Port Isabel, with first of freight from steamer Newbern, is due to-day. Brig J. B. Ford, 16 days out from San Francisco, arrived at Port Isabel Juno 29th, with lumber and machinery for one steamboat and a barge. Tho schooner Alice Haako, 19 days from San Francisco, arrived July 10th, with general merchandise The steamer Newbern 10 days from San Francisco, arrived July 11th, with 300 troops, passengers and general merchandise. She left for San Fran ciscq on tho 18th. John S. Carr returned from his eastern trip last Thursday. Clarence Gray, District Attornoy, left by yesterday's stage for Sauta Barbara, from whence ho will return in about threo weeks. Major E. F. Thompson, 23d Infan try, who arrived hero per steamer Nowbern, left this morning for Mo havo. Captain Eandall, Lieutenants Dodgo and Manning, all of tho 23d, left hero on tho Cocopah on their way to Pres cott. The Eocky Mountain News, of July 10, says tho completion of the Denver and Bio Grande road to Pueblo ren ders that point tho northern terminus of tho great southern overland mail line. From this place a daily stage runs southward to Trinidad, Cimarron, Fort Union, Las Vegas, Santa Fe, and all point in New Mexico. The lino is one of tho best managed now in existence, and is in all respects worthy of its hiehreputation. Barlow, Sanderson & Co, aro among tho oldost of stage men, and their line3 aro al ways maintained at a high standard pf expeUence. Increase of Crime Eastward. Tho New York Tribune of July 1, says tho Sunday brawls in that city are increasing, and that within tho last few years the arrests for "murder, manslaughter, and robbery havo largoly increased." It also says that tho arrests for crime during 'tho year ending April 5,. 1872, number 84,574, an increaso of 8,822 over preceding years. Now hero is ovidenco that there aro not only " bad men " in tho midst of our highest civilization, but that these " bad men " aro frightfully incroasing their bad work. May not this in creaso of crime bo attributable to a local neglect of Christian influences brought about by a transfer of said influences to tho murderous Indians? Is it not natural for tho bad Now Yorkers to take moro liberally to "murder, manslaughter and robbery, whilo they seo tho great and good philanthropic Christians excuse, and defend, and protect tho " merciless In dians " who make these crimes a reg ular business? Thero is Christian authority of some respectability which speaks of whore certain good works should begin such as removal of motes in tho eye, practice of charity and tho liko. Prospecting Again. Governor Safford is again on a pros pecting expedition, accompanied this time by Messrs. Farroll and Kennody of Salt Eiver Valley. Ho loft here on tho 21st with tho purpose of explor ing tho mountains in tho eastern or northeastern part of the Territory. He has long been of the belief that placer gold mines exist over that way, which will afford remunerative em ployment to a large, population. Old Jo Walker and other pioneers, we be liove, havo reported the discovery thero of immonso gravel banks which givo fine prospects in gold from top to bot tom, and that by moans of ditches, Water in abundance may be taken to them. Dangor from Indians has pre vented any efforts to work in that locality. The Governor is an exper ienced placer miner, and goes fully prepared to test tho value of tho gravel deposits referred to ; and if tho peace-loving Apache will let him and comrades alone, our readers may in a few weeks, expect a reliable report of whatever discoveries they make. Every true friend of Arizona will be glad to hoar of tho safe return of the Governor and party, and also of their labor being crowned with great suc coss. QUITE a body of Indians from Apa oho, with passes, have recently been gathering mescal along the San Car los. When amply fed by govern ment, it would seem unnecessary for the poor Apaches to be out laboring hard in tho hot weather f5r mescal But probably we don't know anything about how much rough liberty theAr must havo to induce them to now arid then accept public food and condesco id to talk about peace. In this connection, wo aro also i l- formed that about loO Indians iro: Apache were at Grant this week, am that they had no passes, and unlei they returned and obtained permission to como to Grant, that they would npt bo allowed to stay. Tho officers in ohargo at Grant are doing all they can to justly oxecuto their duty to wards citizens, government and Apa ches. Colonel Woolsey, vriting at Stanwix Station on tho Gila, July 20, says that " we are having fino rains," and that the border outlaws aro quiet at pre3en.t. legal Advertisements. UNITED STATES MAIL.
