Willbur, temporarily agent of these Indians, came to town early this week. Prom him wo learn that these Apaches, which had been in times past on the Grant reserve, were all started on their way to the San Carlos their new home where they must be now; also that they seemed pleased that they were going there to commence farming. He says the Pinal Apaches acknowledge Es kevanzin their chief with eight sub chiefs, and the band number 152 men, 257 women and 410 children; that the Aribaipas' chief is Chiguito Capi tan, with four sub-chiefs, and the band consists of 32 men, 51 women and 89 children ; that the Tontos ac knowledge Paypeylay chief with two sub-chiefs, and the band embraces 34 men, 46 women and 97 children. Among these several bands are six women, eleven children and one man, captives from other tribes. These statements give a total of 235 men, 360 women and 607 children. These figures include chiefs and captives The Doctor figures up the daily ex penditures of the agency at $273 17. The San Carlos reserve agency is about fifty miles by the trail from the iold one at Grant. The Hon. Fbed Henry, of Yava pai, got off several good speeches in the late legislature, but our space has been and is now too limited to give any number of them, but the sub stance of one is rather too good to not have a wider hearing. The offering of amendments became very annoy ing to him, so, near the end of the session, his patience reached its limit, and upon an amendment being offered, Mr. Henry bounded to his feet and said in substance : 2Ir. Speaker, I am opposed to these eternal amendments. Mr. Speaker, when Gabriel toots his trumpet on the final day of judgment, some member from the then rural districts of Ari zona will jump up and in shrill notes offer an amendment, and if it carries, it would so confound the dead that they would not know whether it was an alarm of hre or war-wnoop Apaches ! of As will bo seen by the proceedings of a meeting at Florence, the citizens f. tWfi n.nd Sanford have lost their patience with roughs and mur derers. Por months gone by, Ave lrnvo hoGii convinced that this state of things would ensue. The open manner in which the citizens act and propose to act commands respect, and probably will have the effect of in ducing bad characters to operate else where and thereby save further pro ceedings in the line indicated in the proceedings, which we presume none can more sincerely wish may be the case than the very men whose names appear to the published proceedin The Citizen to-day. Wednesday of this -week, Agent Willbur and Bishop Salpointe went to San Xavier to tako some steps towards starting a school there for the Panasro children. The result is that in a few weeks a school will be open ed there under the immediate charge of two of tho Sisters of St. Joseph As tho Papagos are Catholic Indians there is a special fitness in putting their children under charge of the Sisters. They are kind and in all respects capable to teach these unlet tered but well disposed children The House of Representatives has passed an amendment to the postal law reducing letter postage per half ounce to two cents on and after July 1, and on daily newspapers (not ex ceeding four ounces in weight) fifteen cents por quarter. to A ST. Louis paper says: "Half a dozen murderers are in this citv awaiting the tedious formality of ac SIGNIFICANT CONTRAST. Two years ago it was with great difficulty the legislative assembly was persuaded to not pass the most denun ciatory resolutions of the public course of one Stoneman then commander of the Department of Arizona. Those who opposed such action admitted the justice but plead the impolicy of it. He was in command and for aught any one certainly knew, might con tinue and increase his insults to the people, his excuses if not defenses of the Apaches, and, at best, his entire worthlessness for the purpose he was stationed among them. His displace ment could be effected, if at all, with out such representative action, and otherwise it might embarrass or defer it, and hence was not taken. Now turn to the whereases and res olutions published to-day regarding General Crook by the representative body of the people! Do they not show a sharp contrast with the pro posed action of a previous and like body ? Stoneman issued fighting or ders but did not fijrht ; Crook fouerht but issued nobombastic.fightingorders. When a suffering: people plead with Stoneman for such relief as he could have given, they were treated with insults and pent from him dishearten ed ; when they sought like aid from Crook, ho received them pleasantly, showing a genuine sympathy with them, and helped or not, they left feeling him to be their sincere friend, willing, though at times unable, to comply or restrained from so doing. Stoneman had not only unlimited dis cretion to go ahead but was urged by his superiors to do so ; Crook has been sibsolutely stopped twice in his activo work, has been three-fourths of his time, interfered with by dogmatic, in termed lesome, and unfriendly peace commissions, and yet in less than a year and a half from his advent here, ho has enabled the people to feel the good effects of peace and encouraged them to believe (with him in com mand) they will soon have reliable peace. "We repeat, the present feeling of the people as expressed by their rep resentatives is in vivid contrast with that only smothered from as prom inent expression two years ago, and ought to be a lesson worth remem brance by and guidance to others wielding such power over the people who make officers and frequently privates. RESOLVES OF GOOD MEN. Proceedings of the Good Citizens of Florence, Sanford and Adjacent Settlements Regarding Life and Property and Lawless Characters. Fi.our.NCE, A. T.. Feb. 17, 1873. At a meeting of the citizens of Gila river, held at Florence, it was Resolved. That whereas life, security ind lawful and risrhtful possession of property have been lor years past and still continue to be insecure in this immediate vicinity, and in fact throughout the whole of the upper valley of the Gila; and whereas, such insecurity is caused by the wanton and unlawful acts of certain bad men and desperados who neither fear nor resrard the laws of God or man, and have set both at defiance: and whereas, the tardv administration ot justice, not only in Pima county, but throughout tne whole Terntorv ot Arizona, seems to nave cm boldened certain lawless men m tne com mission of violent acts m our midst; be it Resolved by the law abiding citizens of the upper Gila valley, That we have this dav met and considered caimiy and dis passionately our iceiings auu cusagrccaoic situation aim me uau name mai ii ncces sarilv brings upon the whole community. we have resolved that we will by our mild strength aid and assist all oflicers of the law in the faithful and fearless discharge oi tneir uulics; auu lauiug to secure mis protection to which wc arc entitled, we are determined to put a stop m a sum mary manner to any more lawless acts in our midst, and further wish to give notice to all lawless characters that wc have borne with their acts until further forbear ance on our part would seem to encourage these parties, and that in the future we are determined to put an effectual stop to the lurtner commission ot such violent acts as have for thclast four years disgraced our settlement. Resolved, That a copy of these rcsoln tions be furnished to Tub Arizona Citi zen, with a request that they be published. Louis Depu', Levi Rugglcs, .)os. uoiiwgwood, Alexander Gay, John Devine. P. R.

McCokmick has our special thanks for the complete census report for 1870. Por reference it is almost invaluable. Certain sections of the country and some cities com plain that they should have a better showing, but it is certain that if there be any fault in this respect, it rests with the local officers, citizens of the aggrieved places, and not with the very ablo and careful commissioner, Gen. F. A. Walker. The statistics of the nation as taken in 1870, are nearer correct in all essentials than those of any previous decade. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS A RARE CHANCE.
