A. C. Benedict, Jose Padllla a
Tomas Tapla are Attacked
Thirty Indians and They
Seven--Benedict Severely Wouml-
edPadilla Receives a Deep Fie1
On last Thursday, near Tuhac,
well armed band of about thirty In
dians attacked tho ranch of A. C.
Benediot and crot the worst of it. Ben
edict and two " laborers wore in th
field about 300 yards from tho house,
the latter two planting beans som
distance from whoro tho former was
TnUinfr un weeds. Ever watchful by
riPT,m. lfr. Benedict discovered a1
stalwart old buck within a few yardsU
of him with his lance in position to
run him through, but knowing tho over
present danger, ho had his rifle within
reach, and instantly picked it tip and
shot the would-be assassin dead on
the snot. At this moment, two armed
bucks wore seen near by, and in a few
minutes got their death from Mr. B.'sj
well-aimed rifle. In the meantime, Pa
dilla and Tapia got their guns, whicll
were near by, and poured such well-
dfrflrterl shots into the eneinv. that
they oach killed two, making seve
good Indians, in all, that day ; an
they think tw6 more must havo dietl
from wounds they feel cortain of hav-
insr inflicted.
Just as tho fight was about closed,
and he was preparing to mount hif
horse, a ricochet shot struck Benedict
on the inside of tho left leg at the J
anKle ana passea through, inflicting ainr.-hp,-i :R ih wnnrW that rim p-ov.

Jose Padilla wras shot through thei
"fleshy part of the left arm. Hi
wound is large but not dangerous an
will leave no permanent injury.
The whipped Indians got out of th
way as fast as they could, when th
men went to tho house, and Mr. Mi
Jvmnev aressea tneir wounas quite
skillfully. A noto was sent to Sheriff
Ott, and on its receipt on Weduesdayj,
he and Mr. Leatherwood went out a
brought Mr. Benedict to town, where
he now is in chargo of Dr. Hand
His wound is very bad, but it is hop
the foot may be saved so as as to bo f
some uso, though it is impossible thAt
it can over bo restored to anything
near a perfect limb. Jose Padill
mained at the ranch under the care pf
Mr. McKinney.
.Our spaco is .too limited to givo fifll
details of this gallant, successful figlrt.
ixcentinor three, fill A-nanhns seen
were armed with needlo and Henry
guns. Tho combatants wore withiij
30 to 100 yards, sq that the character o
their arms was unmistakeablo. Th
air was filled with balls, and tho es
cape with life, of tho bravo three, is
almost miraculous. Fifteen armed
Indians wero seen in ono body, an
full as many at the samo timo scat
tered about. Their expectation seen
ed to have been to separato tho wor
men irom their arms, ana then hate
an easy job of killing ; but Mr. Ben
edict never allows himself or men
about him to get beyond almost in
stant reach of good guns.
uo tne Apaches want peace r Do
they hunt for peace or objects to mur
der and steal ? Is thoro any man so
idiotic as not to know that as a body
they must bo severely punished by ac-
tual fighting beforo thoy will be at
peace r
We aro advised that orders are out
for tho return of Troop M of tho
Fifth, officered by Captain Leib and
Lieutenant Almy, from tho San Car
los, which probably closes out that
placo as a military camp. This Troop
goes to the head of Arivaipa Canyon,
about thirty miles southeast of Grant.
T. A. SCOTT and nurfcv of
c j
Texas and Pacific railway chiefs in
tend to reach San Diego in tho latter
part of August.
The conduot of these Indians is of
intense interest to this people. If
they behave well, some security to life
and property is felt in this portion of
Arizona; if they do not, tho most
terrible apprehensions provail. The
mathematical fact of two and two
making four, is no more plainand cer
tain than that tho Apaohes at Grant
havo either been cognizant of or par
ticipants in all thefts and murdora in
the Pima county settlements ; and it
is reasonably certain that until the ar
rival of Col. Eoyall and Agent J aeobs,
the officers in charge defended thorn in,
and probably incited them to commit,
these depredations. Tho Five Points
in New York in their palmiest days,
were not more prolific nurseries of
theft and murder, than tho Grant In
dian Agency prior to the advent of
the present officers ; and it is even now
believed by soino that tho former
agent has his hired villains socrotly
encouraging tho Indians to act in
solently and commit crimes, to tho ond
that it may appear to tho uninformed
abroad, tho government of them now
is worse than formerly. As infamous
acts as this are known to a moral cer-
tainty to havo been practiced within a
few months, for the solo purposo of
destroying honest men and officers
fvho are working and havo worked for
p poaco which would give security to
Indians as well as citizens. Perjurers,
.certificate men, strumpets, liquors,
bhampagnes, cigars, &c, were agencies
Wused and -indulged, and wo hear of
nono baing unpaid, and that they were
all obtained on an incomo of $125
per month, is too preposterous for
a moment's thought ; and doe3 any
ono sunposo that a debased and des-
pised officer would resort to overy
vilo and expensive means to retain
power for tho mere bonefit of a set of
Indians or any body but himself i Is
it possible that true philanthropy and
infamy can be so intimately ana yet
honestly blended in tho same officer i
After more than a year's manipula
tion by such an officer as wo havo des-
' J
e" OI lU0 -"" gW"
CerS. liko Col. RoVall and E. C
Jacobs, is extremely difficult and un
certain in results ?
Last year, stock stolon in this soo
tion, traced to Grant and found in pos
session of tho Indians, was sold by
them on an official permit, and tho
owners afterward had to buy it back
or lose it entirely ; now stolen stock
found there, is promptly returned to
tho owner. Last week a rolative of
Es-ko-van-zin brought a horse to
Agent Jacobs, which ho believed had
been stolen, and truo-onough, it proved
to bo one taken in Juno from Mr,
Bicknian, south of Tucson, and an
other of his horses is reported to have
been seen in possession of the Indians
Agont Jacobs has sent tho ono to Tuc
son and will do his bost to got and
return tho other.
As beforo stated, both Col. Eoyall
.and Agent Jacob3 aro doing all in
heir powor to rightfully executo their
'duties, and tho public at largo ap
preciate their efforts. Their task is
doubly difficult because of former
advicos from Sonora aro to
the effect that peaco reigns throughout
tho State, and that tho Apachos have
been less troublesome for tho past few
months than for years provious. This
nows seems to confirm tho report that
Cachise, with a largo band of war
riors, has taken up his headquarters
in Mexico, and made peaco with that
country, with tho full understanding
that he can raid into Arizona and other
American domain and return and find
protection for himself and band and
sale for his spoils. If this report
prove true, the gamo may bo permit
ted to go on undisturbed, but we don't
believe it will. Tho American pooplo
can bo provoked to defensive and oven
lo y
offensive moasures.

July 18, a mulo train in charge of
N. B. Apple, with 36,000 pounds of
grain from the San Pedro, arrived at
the San Carlos where the new post

via tho old Goodwin road. Distance
from Goodwin to San Carlos, is about
forty miles over a road reported to bo
quito rough. Before roaohiug San
Carlos, a teamster (Mexioan) shot him
self by accident in the left leg, and
Mr. Apple had something akin to a
sunstroke. Dr. Mullan, then at San
Carlos, was sent for. Ho promptly
