Price per Year, $5 ; Six Months, $3 TUCSON, ARIZONA ifitrurlay - 3Iarch 1, 1873. A Court-Martial convened m Santa Eg in August, 1872, result ed in the dismissal and cashiering of Cantain Alfred Hedbersr. First Lieutenant Julian E. Pitch and Sec ond Lieutenant Edmund T. Byan, all of the Fifteenth Infantry. We also learn that the derelict court which was reconvened to try Lieutenant Colonel Tompkins, former chief quar termaster of this department, so far found him guilty as to causo his sus pension for one year and the loss of all his pay and allowances for that period, hut $75 per month. It would seem from these and some other like cases of recent date, that officers of the army are beginning to realize and act upon the realization, that if they would keep themselves above common contempt, they must not rally to tho support of a de bauchee, or a drunken loafer, or a scoundrel, just because such disreput able man is an officer of the army. It is with sincere pleasure we observe all evidences of self-respect and pur gation in the army ; and in calling conspicuous attention to them, wo are giving better proots ot a genuine regard for the welfare of that branch ofthe public service, than the average courts-martial do. Governor Safford and J. "W. Hopkins returned on Thursday from an inspection of the Pueblo Viejo set tlement located, as heretofore stated, some distance ahove old Camp Good win along the Gila river. The Mon tezuma Canal Company has secured a largo water claim and have some twenty men digging the canal which will be so far completed as to supply many thousands of acres with water in season to mature crops this year. Good land, water and timber are con venient and abundant as also are nsli and wild game both fowl and animal The climate is healthy. Next week we'll give an outline of ruins of old towns and cities recently discovered in that vicinity, and also of relics found which go to establish the fn.nh of the sudden massacro of tho people who inhabited them and culti vated the surrounding country. r" The good work of making peace goes bravely on as wo learn by The Prescott Miner of last Saturday. Lieutenant Frank Michler, company K, Fifth Cavalry, en route from Verde I IU Jit-U. VJ I tili.ii uu...,. .-.u " of Tontos on the 23d ot January, on Tonto Creek,-and killed 17 warriors, captured their camp, arm?, and all th&v had. Private Georere Hooker was killed in the charge. First Serpreant Day, of Captain ! Price's command, Company E, Fifth I Cavalry, while out on a side scout, j surprised a rancheria and killed five warriors. Juieutenant Woodson s com mand was fired into during tho night, and one horse killed. Other scouts were engaged and out, but we have no space to-day for nioro particulars. Private advices from Yuma state that "William Pickens, who shot and killed Captain A. Hahn November 3 .-V y 1873, and was indicted therefor by the last grand jury of Yuma county, es caped jail on the 19th and got away entirely. It is probably just as well that murderers get away early as late, as it seems to be only questions of time and manner about their escape from tho law s penalty. Since the above was put in t3'pe, wo learn that Pickens was confined in Eort Yuma and escaped from it and not tho jail. We are credibly informed, says Tho Pioche Record, that a colony is being formed in and around St. Geonre, Nevada, to settle in northeast Ari zona. Colonel Jennine3 and S. E Johnson aro at the head of it. A Pioche dispatch of February 9, reads : Numbers of prospectors are leaving dany tor JJeath valley and Sacra mento cn.sr.ricr, Arizona. General Crook got back to Pros cott JJeoruary 17 just three months from tho time he took the field porson, tho last tinio. I.OCAX MINING OPERATIONS. Some nionthR ago, D. A. Bennett, Thomas Hughes and others leased the steam works of the Santa Eita Saw mill Company, moved them into tho Patagonia mountains and we believe have ever since been conducting quite an extensive and successful mining business in taking out and smelting ore. This movement was taken in the belief that tho Apaches would permit work to be continued there and thus far they have done so. This now start over that way for the first time in over five years, emboldened others to oxploro that region so well known to be full of mineral wealth, until now, as per report oi iu.r. lienneic, more than 200 men are exploring for or developing mines already found thereaway. E. N. Fish, D. A. Ben nett and Lt. W. J. Ross purpose to erect reduction works on tho upper San Pedro and open up and work a mine near tho stream. For this pur pose we understand an order has teen sent to San Francisco for machinery. Samuel Hughes, H. S. Stevens, E. Ochoa and P. R. Tully (probably ome others) are developing several mines about thirty-five miles to the south-west of Tucson, and some of the principals visited tho works and workmen this week. Judged by re turns received of samples tested in San Francisco, they are confident of being: able to make a rjrofit by shin- ping tne ore to luma by wagons and thence by steamer to San Francisco, for sale. This class of ore we are told is abundant. This being the case, what a future there is in store for this section of Arizona when supplied with railway transportation right through here reaching both east and west to ocean craft ! Some thirty odd miles westward from Tucson, Ira O. Tuttle says him self, John Thompson and William Ormsby are working on mines with very encouraging prospects. He says considerable of the ore contains enough gold to enable a man to make from 2 to 2 50 per day with a hand mortar, and that they intend to construct aras tres very soon. In that vicinity are mines which were worked a century or more ago, as is evidenced uy a large dead mesquite tree in the door way of a stone cabin and another grown over tho forge ; also tho banks of quartz once ground and worked; also hundreds of hammers of a bluish but almost indestructible stone. Then the evidence is clear that for some cause, in places, the excavations were purposely filled up twenty or more feet. Water seems to te plentiful within a few feet of the surface and some springs are near Dy, an l tne country abounds in excellent pas turage. A vein of white marble is also reported to extend for many miles in this section. Mr. Tuttle thinks thid marble is of very fine quality. Other mining operations are going on and contemplated, cf which we have no specific reports but hope to have from time to time. To Hon. lv. (J. Alcuormiclc we are indebted for the complete report, for 1871, of tho Secretary of the Interior which includes the reports of the Gen eral Land office, Pension office, Ind ian Affairs' office, and of Public Buildings ; also for Commissioner Raymond's report on Mining Statis tics; also Professor Hayden's Geo logical report on Montana and ad jacent Territories ; also a complete re port of tho several meetings of th Lientennial commission ; also a vari ety of minor but useful documents. Mr. A. C. Benedict yesterday took formal possession and assumed the duties of the lerritorial Auditor's office, by virtue of his recent appoint ment. Dr. C. 71. Lord who has held the office for several years has always performed its duties with entire ac curacy and satisfaction; but by the recent presidential order, ho could not hold tho office beyond tho 4th instant without losing his United States ap pointments.
