JAMES GRANT, Proprietor. Tucson, September 1, 1871. sdMf THE CITIZEN. TUCSON, PIMA COUNTY, ARIZONA. 8aturday. - frXnrdi 1. The Direct Eastern Mail. Havin"- a very satisfactory western mail by which the mass of our eastern matter comes to hand in from eighteen to twenty days, wo have little care for the mails directly eastward ; al though the interruption of the latter causes mucu inconvenience to many of our citizens. Yesterday a very laree through mail via Santa Ee reached Tucson. It contained letters and papers covering the time from January 1 to February 5, and perhaps later. When this mail is carried as it should be, it carries to and brings matter from the eastern States in from four to six days less time than the one by San Diego and San Francisco. Our exchanges from Colorado and parts of New Mexico, for two months past, got here yesterday. The av erage expressions of them are very much against the Southern Overland Mail Company between Santa Fe and the railroad. The company stopped carrying tne mail because ot the horse disease ; yet our exchanges show that nearly if not all other stage com panies kept up their regular trips with out delay. "When the mail was first stopped between Santa Fe and Pueblo, private expresses were at once started to carry mails (letters at 25 cents each) and passengers, and accordin to our exchanges did so and had no special difficulty in procuring an imals healthy enough for the pur pose. It is possible, but not even hinted at by our Colorado and New Mexican exchanges, that if these pri vate parties had been regular mail contractors, they could not have found enough robust horses or mules to have carried tho mail they might have seen epizootic in all, and might even have said sc m a most solemn manner. Possibly if wo had a mail contract in a section of ccuntrv where the epizootic was supposed to prevail, we should not be able to see, much less hire or buy, a mule or horse free of it. The very name of the thing i5 distracting, and to mix it with a mail contract, must, in certain sections of the country, perfectly bewilder men with mail contracts to such an ex tent that nothing will restore them to their former condition but a peremp tory prescription by tho Postmaster General at least this remedy is pro nounced by tho Colorado and New Mexican papers to have been recently applied with marvelous success ; and, the large through mail yesterdav, makes us suspect the effectiveness of the cure. However, it is with pleasure we state that J. F. Bennett & Co., who carry the mail between Santa Fe and Tucson have not been seriouslv at tacked by the epizootic influence. Al most every mail three times a-week brought us evidence that they were doing their duty by considerable extra exertion, and the average of our New Mexican exchanges award this com pany much praise for their fidelity to tho public. The Borderer of last Saturday has this upon the subject : Tho stage stock here are all sick, and Mr. Cosgrove reports it all along the line west. Some of the horses hero are in bad condition, yet it is hoped all can bo saved. Tt is exceed ingly difficult to procure stock with which to start tho Santa Fo coach on Monday. McCorinick's Practical Work. Department op Agriculture, 1 Washington. D. C. January 27, 1873. J Hon. R. 0. McCormick, House of Re presentatives. Sir : In compliance with your request, I have this day forwarded to tho commanding officer of each of tho mili tary posts in Arizona Territory, named by you, an assorted package of garden seed. Very respoctully, your obedient servant. Fred'k Watts, Commissioner. The government saw-mill at Mt. Graham is in operation and making excellent lumber. Tho work of con structing the new post out there is going on. The location is said to be charming, and also convenient in many respects. Col. "W. B. Eoyall is about to assume command of it. A New taw. January 16, the President approved the following act: An Act to prevent certain officers of the United btates and Territories from practicing as attorneys or solicitors in courts of the United States in certain cases.' Bo it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the Unit ed States of America in Congress as sembled, That no clerk, assistant or deputy clerk, of any Territorial, dis trict, or circuit court, or of the Court of Claims, or the Supremo Court of the United btates, or marshal or dep uty marshal ot tho United States within the district for which ht is appointed, shall act as a solicitor, proctor, attorney, or counsel in anv cause depending in either of said courts, or in any district for which he is acting as such officer. Section 2. That whosoever shall violate any provision of this act shall be striken from the roll of attorneys by the court upon complaint, upon .which the respondent shall have due notice, and bo heard in his defense ; and in the case of a marshal or deputy marshal so acting, he shall be recommended by tho court tor dis missal from ofhee. Here is sonio Washington news of more or less local interest, for which we are indebted to our San Diego ex changes : "Washington, February 18. Sena tor Nye reported favorably the .Bill authorizing the Territories to select and sell two sections of land in each township for school purposes. A bill was introduced in the House by Mr. Armstrong to enable tho Ter ritories to elect Governors and other Territorial officers. The bill to encourage and promote telegraphic communication between America and Asia as passed, that the Company shall begin to lay the Pa cific cable within two years. The friends of the Postal Telegraph seem to be thoroughly earnest in their en deavors though they have very little expectation of being able to accom plish anything this session. The American and Australian Telegraph bill has passed the Senate. Washington, Feb. 13. The fcrmal counting of the Electoral votes shows a majority of 233 for President Grant. Arkansas and Louisiana were thrown out, and the Greeley vote not counted. Western women are grumbling terribly becauso tho managers of agricultural fairs don't give at least a year's notice when they offer prizes tor the finest babies.
