Fa;ki nks advertises in another column his desire- to feed hungry horses and mules. He will also carry passe i-ger and express packages to Lowell twice a day, leaving Tuesnti at 7 a in. and 4 p. tu. M. I. Jacobs & Co. have received a very large stock of iroods this week, which they want to exchange for stamps. Leopold Wolf has recently entered into partnership with this enterprising firm. Leopldo Cakiullo and lady gave a so cial party to a few of their friends the fore part of the week. Music and dancing w.is the order of the evening. Every one had a good time as they always do there. J The harvest of wheat and barley has commenced, and in two or three weeks the saute land will be imam plowed and planted with corn. Mother earth in Ari zona does her full share in contributing to the suppport of man; and if our rela tive Uncle Samuel will abolish the con tract system and allow the fanners to deal with him direct, we will call him the dean-it, bulliest old uncle that ever lived. The Village Council met May 20. Mayor Toole presiding. The following bills were allowed : E. D. Wood S3 75 ; M. G. Gay, 12; Lord & Williams, 64. Coun cilman iiugues was appointed a commit tee lo purenasc auobca lor the erection of a wall on tue north side of Congress street. The Kecoider was instructed to ascertain the outstanding indebtedness and amount of taxable property of Tuc son. Adjourned to Saturday May 24. The horse race we meulioned last week has given our courts of justice considera ble business. Most of the property won was mortgaged to other parties, and was consequently taken away from the win ning parties. This created a little un pleasantness, and several combatives have been called upon to show why so restless and impressive toward their fellow-men. The judge generally fined them costs of suit and read them that beautiful little 6tanza: "Let dogs delight to bark and bite, for God hath made them so." After which the offenders left with swelling hearts and tearful eyes, fully determined to siu no more. The village of Tucson owes a small debt, and the creditors want it, and the citi zens say they ought to have it. Arizo nans have a particular pride in paying their debts, hence we never have any fail ures among our merchants. We keep a surplus in our Territorial Treasury, and our counties owe but little, and the gen eral feeling is that the capital of the Territory- and the county-scat of Pima county cannot afford to set a bad example of having creditors ask in valu lor their money. Therefore the council have been discussing the proposition of levying a corporation tax, and to each of the tax payers give an equivalent in town lots for the taxes paid. This iu effect will be to sell so much of the town property to our tax-payers at a low price as will liquidate the village indebtedness. We hope some such plan will be adopted, for the amount we owe is small, ana it sounds Dau to have it said that Tucson can't pay its debts. Fdbnaces are being erected six miles south of Tucson for the purpose of smelt ing silver and copper ores. Old arrastras and smelting works are to be seen at this place that were erected and successfully operated years ago, but the Apaches con stantly levied contributions upon the norscs anu muies in use, auu one uy one murdered the emploj'es and owners, un til the works were abandoned. We under stand that Messrs. Simpson & Myers have made a contract lor smelting some ore from their mine, and are now preparing to haul the ore to the furnace. Smelting ore will soon commence in the Sierrita district. Some ot the ore from that dis trict recently taken to Mexico and 6melted, paid 1 per H. in silver. Ihomas Yerkes, Superintendent of the Patagonia mine, is piling up cruae uuuion mountain high. Unless some arrangements are soon made to freight it away, he will get so much of it on hand that he will have to wait until Oc railroad is completed. DEPrrrr Siieuiff TuRNEtt came in on Mondav's stage in charge ot Robert Wal lace, who has'beeu on the rampage in sev eral of the towns of Arizona for a num ber of months. Some time ago he started in to take the town of Tucson, and has boasted ever since that he did get away with it, and we surmise that in this asser tion he is-not far away from the truth. He then went to Yuma, but that was so easy a job.it was haidly worthy of his ge nius, and he made his way back toward Tucson, taking in the small towns as he 'passed along, intending undoubtedly, to give Tucson another little rake over, and men pass on lo larger cuies aim a more extended field of duty. But unfortunately he fell into bad hands. The Gilattes have been raked over a good deal latelv by this kind of cattle, and they don't seem to like it. They kindly took this energetic bone crusher in charge, ornamented him all over with jewels, and sent him to the Tucson boardinir-house. In order that he should not be lonely on the way they sent Smith Turner with him for company. We direct attention to the advertise ment of G. W. Chesley & Co. Capt. C. C. Warner is traveling for the firm. He is an old Pacific Coaster and is esteemed by all who know him. He says he likes Ari zona and is bound to make the boyg happy if their goods will do it. Personat,. Pedro Asruirre left for Al tar, Sonora, on Tuesdav. Mr. Ochoa arrived home from San Car los on Monday. Miss Nelly Hastings came in on the Grant stage Tuesday. The court-martial at Lowell concluded its labors hist Saturday. Maj. Bird, Uapt. Haskell and Lieut. Davis left for Bowie on Sunday. Dr. Wilbur has gone to the C'avave to look after the Pup'agocs who mostjy live in that section of the country at this sea son of the year. Thomas Mc Williams came in this week from Pueblo Vieio. He savs being a standing witness in criminal cases and traveling 20U miles to the couniy-seat, does not ray very well. Cant. C. C. Warner and Dr. J. C. Handy came in on Wednesday's st-'.ge. The tormcr Irotu Prcscott and the latter irom the Giia. Cautaiu Warner has traveled quite extensively over Arizona and is much pleased with the country. Smith Turner, D. C. Thompson and M. Rodgers departed Tor the Gila by Tues day's stage. Louis Zeekcndorf left on tne same day for California on his way to New York, where he expects in Hie future to remain. He leaves many friends here. L. Ros3nbach came in this week Irom San Bernardino on his way to Sonora to purchase sheep. He says that the range for sheep in California is becoming lim ited, and that the land there is too valua uable to make it profitable for sheep-raising, and he intends now to try his fortune iu Arizona. Major Morrow and his secretary Ved der ant: Dr. Giiard came in yesterday from McDowell. Gen. Small, chief com missary of the departtneutof .rizona, and Dr. Bailey came at the same time from Preseott. They have been ordered by the department commander to inspect most of the posts of the Territory. They have been tried and proved to be faithful officers. We are glad to see them here, and hope their sojourn may be pleasant. Mavor Toole and lady returned from Sonora last Saturday. They went as far as Hermosillo and there feasted on or anges a few days, had a good time gener ally, and returned believing that Mexicans can have more to cat and live poorer than any people in the world; cuikcep poorer 8tat;e horses and drive them further and faster than any body else, and that in no place on earth can the society to prevent cruelty to animals have a broader or' more useful field lor operation than in Mexico. The party given by Messrs. Abadic & Co. last Saturday evening was one of the plcasantest of the season. Dancing was kept up, we will not say how late, but certainly until Sunday morning. The girls were out in large numbers, and we will not tell how oretty they were for fear some one will charge us with being spoony, but we will say and defy proof to the contrary, that Tucson has the most pretty girls of any town ol its size in America. We take a particular pride in saying this, because they were born here, and to make them pretty it has not cost their papas a fortune to buy chignons, paint, false teeth, pads, bustles, frills, puffs, furbelows and flounces, silks, sat ins and laces, hats too small to make a shadow, and shoes small enough to spoil the feet and sour the temper. They are simply rosy cheeked, graceful, healthy, natural Arizona girls ; have never seen a lanrer town than Tucson and do not care to ; arc happy and contented with what they see and the amusemeuts they nave, and the folly and vexation of fashionable life that sends fathers and husbands to the poor-house and penitentiary has no charms for them. They are obedient daughters, charming sweethearts, and make dutiful, devoted wives. In the case of the People vs. John Wil lis, the following named jurors were se lected and sworn last Saturday : J. Pa checo, H. B. Smith, Henry Smith, Wm. Dunne, Wm. Sullivan, Wm. Riggs, D. C. McCarthy, Charles King, Alexander Wil kins, J. L. Harris, Jolin Ryan and W. H. Gwinn. On Monday the examination of witnesses commenced, and during the progress of the trial the jurors were placed in chaige of the sheriff and kept from con tact with the outside world. The case was vigorously prosecuted by L. C. Hughes, District Attorney, and ably de fended by Gen. J. E'. McCaffry, counsel for the prisoner. A large number of wit nesses were examined. Major Forky, Quartermaster at Tucson, was thirty-four years old last Thursday.. His friends determined that a day so event ful should not pass without recognition, hence they assembled at an early hour at his residence. Tho Fifth Cavalry String Band was there, and music and dancing was the order of the evening, until a late hour. We have seldom seen a more pleas ant gathering, and many were the wishes that tho worthy host and his excellent wifo may have thirty-four years more of hap piness in store for them. The building of the new post at Lowell moves slowly for want of traasporta tion and more help. Good wages are of fered with rations. The soldiers are em ployed whip-sawing the timbers orougnt from Crittenden. The gardens look well, and Gen. Allen has his store nearly com pleted. Tnu -wpjither in the forepart of the week was cloudy with a light sprinkle of rain. From tho Miner wo learn that Smith's mill had made one satisfactory clean-up, and th-it bullion was plenty at Wickenburg. The Hope mino in Mohave county is said to bo 30 feot wide, and assays from $50 into the thousands, and has been traced and locnted twonty-two niile3. Hardy's mill at Mineral Prk is doing well since anastras havo been a ided to it. Ore has bi en worked by it from the Rosebud and Lone Star with satisfactory results. LORD & WILLIAMS.
