GEN. CROOK AT DATE CREEK,
From The Prcsiiott Miner, Sept. 21.
Tr last wear crave an account of
the miiS.-acro of stao passengers by
hdmris near "Wickeubure:. several
00 , mouths ago, and of the successful ef-
j tt breneral Urook to ierret out
the murderers and robbers, which ef
forts, we explained, led the General
to Camp Date Creek for the purpose
,of arresting such oi the guilty sav
ages as might there be found, and of
turning fchem over to the civil autbon
ies for trial. "VVo also stated how the
vidians resisted arrest by sfcabbin
lie fist soldier ko, according to ord
ers, attempted to make an arrest,
hicn action or tneirs was linnie
Mateir followed by indiscriminate
iioon'i g between Whites and Indians.
Vi i:, Gen. Crook returned to Fort
Vhiule, but had scarcely arrived
vhen a despatch from Dr. Williams,
Jidian Agent at Date Creek, was re-
ived by him, the tenor of which was
hat emaspie, Chief of the Apache
mma.-, with between 80 and 100 of
vs pt..)ple had returned to the reser
vi.tion, professing friendship for the
hites and a desire for peace.
Away went Crook to Dato Creek,
Tpon arriving there, the Indians were
nt then prepared to talk, owing to
t fact that the wife of one of their
v.incipal chiefs was sick,
I he morninc of the third dav after
'lis arrival, a council was held, the
Indians agreeing to stay upon the re
serve : to report the fact to their Agent
whenever bad Indians came among
tl.em ; to help the Whites chastise bad
Indians, should they be called upon
tc Jo o, and to aid the authorities in
bringing those Indians who had mur
dered the stage passengers to justice
This being all the General desired
the Apache-Yumas to do, he promised
on the part of the Government to do
everything necessary for their welfare,
so long as they would live up to their
agreement, and assured them that
their past misdeeds should be for
given. Having heard that they intend
to take the life the friendly Mohave
chief Irataba he warned them not
to do 60, and explained that Irataba
was not the first person who had in
formed upon the murderers, after
which Crook started for this place,
and is now organizing a force of sol
diers ard friendly Indians to operate
against the Apache-Mohaves and all
other bad Indians.
People in a great hurry or liable
to seasickness will be glad to learn
these facts taken from The San Diego
Union of September 24 :
Mr. John W. Strauchon, agent of
thu iu,u Diego and Los Angeles stage
line, is in receipt of a letter from Mr.
Sceley, stating that the time between
this city and Los Angeles would be
reduced to 23. hours after this date.
By iho new arrangement the stage
will leave San Diego for Los Angeles
at 11 A. ir., arriving at the latter city
the following day at 10 A. M.
The stages will connect at Los An
geles with the Telegraph stage lino,
which connects at Tipton the present
terminus of the S. P. R. E. with the
cars. The latter line, together with
the cars, carry the passenger through
in 43 hours from Los Angeles to San
T.:i And officers at Prescott have
furnished The Miner with some facts
relating to the public lands. From
their statement, we find that 339 pre
emptions have been filed, amounting
to 55, 120 acres; number of homestead
entries, eight, amounting to 1,277
acres ; sold at $1 25 per acre,4,79S 61
100 acres ; two mines have been sold
tho Flora Templo in Yuma county,

Our eastern exchanges advise us
that the Atchison, Topeka and Santa
Fe Railroad is being pushed ahead,
and that the grading is done to within
forty Jes of Fort Lyon on the Ar-
trains wero running to Fort Dodge
and construction trains much farther
west ; u lso that the Kit Carson branch
of tho Kansas Pacific is going ahead
rapidly, and is graded within ten
miles ot Forfc Lyon.
Arizona and Nevada Officially Com
Following is an extract from the
preliminary report of Lieutenant Geo,
M. Wheeler, and from a very exten
sive personal observation of both
Nevada and Arizona, we pronounce
the comparison of leading resources
As before stated, the arable lands
of Nevada are very small in relative
amount; contrasting Nevada with
Arizona, the latter has the advantage
in relative proportions, as will bo
shown bv the statistical map to be
Nevada cannot claim to be an agri
cultural section, but most of the local
wants for the mining inhabitants
could be supplied from home produc
tion. In Arizona, in and around
iscott, along the valley of the upper
Gila, Salt and Verde Eivers, south of
Tucson, along the Santa Cruz River
and Sonoita Creek, there is an area
capable of sustaining quite an agrl
cultural population ; some of the
finest soil that I have ever seen has
lately been broken up along the Gila,
and around the settlement called
In the matter of natural facilities
for grazing large herds of stock, Ari
zona ranks Nevada-; in. ha-number of
mining districts Nevada leads far in
the advance. As far as the probable
amount of bullion from the two, at a
time twenty years from now, is con
cerned, it is hard to say. It is be
lieved that after the Indian difficulty
is settled, and railroads are brought
into Arizona, that districts already ex
amined will be worked profitably, and
stimulus given to further and more
careful prospecting. When the In
dians have become peaceable, the vaL
leys aud rolling toot-hills will afford
the most excellent pasturage for very
large herds ot stock, with their cover
ing of bunch and gramma grasses
At the present time, stock not herded
by a respectablo force is not sate in
any portion of Arizona, except at
certain localities along the Lower Gila
and Colorado and in the Hualapais
country, or northwestern part of the
Pacific Mail Steamers ou the Coast.
v The following telegram to the San
Diego papers gives this informa
tion of interest to very many of our
San Fuaxcisco, September 23.
The Pacific Mail Steamship Company
f San Diego Branch) has adopted the
following schedule, which goes into
effect on and after the departure of the
Orizaba to-day :
SOUTHERN COAST LINE.
Steamers leave San Francisco on the
3d, 13th and 23d of each month for
Sah Diego, stopping at Santa Barbara,
San Pedro and Anaheim.
Leave San Francisco on the oth and
30th of each month stopping at Mon
terey, San Luis Obispo, San Simeon,
Santa Barbara, San Pedro and 'Ana
heim. Returning: Leave San Diego on
the .7th, 17th and 27th of each month
at 31 P. Jr. touching at Anaheim, San
Pedro and Santa Barbara.
Leave San Diepro on the 5th and
20th of each month, touching at all
ports up the coast.
Steamers leave San Francisco for
Panama on the 7th, 17th and 27th of
each muntb, calling at DuiT-Kcga
San Pedro, but will take no freight
for those ports.
The Iranama steamers up arc ex
pected to reach San Diego on the 3d,
13th and 23d of each month, and San
Pedro on the days following.
San Pedro freight to and from New
York must be transferred to the Pa
nama steamers at San Diego.
Through bills of lading will be
signed, and through passage tickets
sold from and to all ports on the San
Diego route to New York, Europe,
Mexico and Central America, at San
Francisco tariff rate3.
A New York dispatch of Septem
ber 19, says that tho man-of-war
Portsmouth, then at Brooklyn Navy
Yard, was fitting for a Government
exploring expedition to tho Pacific.
She will first go to San Diego, Lower
California, and then survey the waters
of that coast.
A gentleman in town, of a mecha
nical turn of mind, has invented a
scalping machine, which is a great
improvement upon the knife used by
the noble aborigine of the Western
wilds. There is no doubt that this
machine will lead to the revival of
the scalping industry, the decadence of
which has been so much mourned.
An ordinary sized Indian can, with
this machine, lift the top hair from
seventeen persons in one minute, do
ing a far neater and more artistic job
than with the old implements. But
this is not all. Tho machine sham
poos and crimps the detached frag
ments of capillary substance, mailing
each beautiful, sightly and orna
mental. Then there is a music-box
for accompaniment, which plays choice
selections from the latest operas while
the machine is at work. Thus is a
love of the aesthetical taught to the
humble red man while devoting him
self to the simple sports and pastimes
of his race. This invention marks a
new era in the life arid growth of the
Indian tribes. It cannot fail to carry
that peoplo upward to a dizzy height
in earth's best civilization.
The testimonials in behalf of this
machine speak volumes. Red Cloud
says: "1 don't see howl ever got
along without your machine. Scalp
ing is no longer work ; it is only pas
time. My little boy, four year old, is
able to work the machine with tho
greatest ease." Bugaboobilly, a chief
of great renown, writes " "The very
thing I have always needed. The men
bers of my family are delighted with
it. I am troubled a good deal by my
neighbors who want to borrow it all
the time. Send, immediately by ex-
r -r r "
press o. j. ju., iour macmnes, m
eluding the musical attachments
Spotted Tail says : " It is the great
est invention of the nineteenth cen
tury. I can't live without your great
machine. My children cry whenever
it stops grinding. Material for scalp
ing is getting scarce here." There
are other testimonials too numerous
Tribe and territorial rights will be
sold on reasonable terms. Active men
can make fortunes speedily by taking
hold ot this great patent. Terre

Hon. Edward Tompkins, a lawyer
and politician of much note in Cali
fornia, has recently donated 50,000
worth of property to the State Uni
versity at Berkeley near Oakland, to
endow a professorship therein to bo.
known as the "Agassiz Professorship
of Oriental Languages and Litera
Among the pertinent reasons as
signed for the gift, in addition to tho
e of making such return as ho is
able for the kindness and prosperity
he has been blessed with in Califor
nia, are these :
-The business between California and
Asia is already very great. Its future is
beyond any estimate that the most san
guine would now dare to make. The child
is now born that will seo tho coramcrco of
the Pacific greater than that of the Atlan
tic. It is carried on with peoplo of whoso
languages wo are wholly ignorant, and in
all tho vast transactions thatit involves, we
are depondont upon native interpreters,
whoso integrity will not become more re
liable, as tho magnitude of their temptations

deadly weapons in public.
.Governor Safford and others held
meetings on the subject of a ditch and
agricultural enterprise to be known
as the Pueblo Viejo Company, and to
operate in the Gila bottom above and
near to old Camp Goodwin. The last

tember, when it was agreed to make
the capital stock $20,000 in 100 shares;
twenty-five per cent, of it to be paid
