Suppose the little cowslip Should hang its golden cup, And say, "I'm such a tiny ilowcr I'd better not grow up ; " How many a weary traveler Would miss its fragrant smell, How manj a little child would grieve To lose it from the dell. Suppose the glistening dew drop Upon the grass should say, " What can a little dewdrop do ? "I'd better roll away; The blade on which it rested Before the day was done. Without a drop to moisten it, Would wither in the sun. Suppose the little breezes, Upon a summer's day. Should think themselves too small to cool The traveler on his way : Who would not miss the smallest And softest ones that blow, And think they made a great mistako That heard them talking so now many deeds of kindness A little child may do; Although it has so little strength And little wisdom too. It wants a loving spirit, Much more than strength, to prove How niany things a child may do a or others by its love. "We are in receipt of several let ters making the following inquiries : What business pays in Arizona ; am anxious to go there if the advantages will warrant, am an honest young man of good habits, would like a paying o'ffico or some easy job ; early answer will be appreciated, as many of my acquaintances are anx ious to hear about Arizona. To the first question we will answer that we have about fifteen thousand people in Arizona investigating that subject, each one striving in one business and another and as soon as they settle tho Question definitely we will make public tho best paying kind or bust ness. As to the qualifications of the young man we fear he will not do for this country. It is well known that a young man was unmercifully kicked recently for picking up pins and returning them to the supposed owner ; besides we would not trust a man or boy who boasts of his honesty any sooner than we would an Indian reservation sharp. As for offices we do not have any good ones in Arizona; wo prefer to pay our debts without heavily taxing the people, rather than spend the money in supporting honest young men. Henry Ward Beecher once said that there was but one easy place and that was the grave. Through all our years of experience as man and bojr, we have found this to be true ; so young man rather than disgrace your parents, select a little spot six by four, where you can havo an easy time, and sleep on for ever more, for we assure you that wo never knew any one who only looked for an easy time in this world who was of any service to himself or others. We learn that the Tularosa Apa ches have left that reservation, pro bably to set up business on their own account again. They have been com ing and going for some time past to and from the Chiricahua reservation. They are intermarried with Chirica hua Apaches, and a strong bond of friendship exists between them. We were told by Jefferd's, some time ago that they desired to come to his res ervation to live, and it is possible that a portion of them may be there now. It seems to us than when the govern ment furnishes them with board and clothes free, and supports them in indolence, that it ought to have some little direction as to where they shall live, but if thev will not go to scalp- raising we shall be content. John Device, (alias the Chicken) was hung in San Francisco may 14. Ho is said to have died "game" and at the same time happy in the belief that his sins were all forgiven, and he firmly expected to be received by nis aavior on tho other side m the land of the blessed. After all per haps his fate was not so bad as that of many who appeared to be more favored and who had lived honorable lives with their fellow-men but were hurled into eternitv without o-nsnnl Pr.lJeges. An eminent divine once sai- that the future was all a guess, j .. O and according to our guess this way of disposing of the human family does not look exactly fair. FROM THE METROPOLIS. A Beautiful Sundav in the Great Metropolitan Menagerie The Tombs Prison -Grace Church Again--A Notable Funeral Cen tral Park The City Generally Justice to the Regular Army. New York, May 4. The exhibi tion of drunken and broken heads at the celebrated Tombs jail in this city of a Sunday morning, is one of the sights to bo remembered. I was there early this morning. Whether I had lodgings there last night is none of your business. Architecturally the Tombs building is worth seeing ; it is as quaint as any old Eygptian tomb according to reports. It down-town institution and is noted for business than pleasure. But to describe it and contents in detail and do it justice, both Dickens and the devil would have to be called in The brute who acts in tho name of justice there is worthy of a passing I would liko to have Captain Jack & Co. stationed in this old lava bed about one Saturday night. Next to this I would have him make a raid on Grace Church while tho present Hector is "wearing his shirt on the outside," as the distiuguished pris oner of the Tombs, (Train,) says of tho Episcopal chaps. I told you I had been looking for Christ at all the fashionablo resorts of this great fraud, but he of Calvary don't show himself where we would naturally expect to find him. Who knows but he is in the Tombs, liko John Bunyan, biding His time ? Hope so ; a new Pilgrims' Progress is sadly needed. But that Eector he has less humanity and the real manners of a gentleman, than tho Police Judge, and a thousand times less cause for impatience toward poor human nature. I called early at tho Grace Church theater so as to get a free and easy look at tho last of James Brooks in this fault-finding world. The coffin was "a thing of beauty," if not a joy for ever, and tho contents despite the credit mobilier scandal, may bo both in the eyes of the Lord. Tho old Hector strutted about, suggesting orders and changes in the programme with all the gruff ness of an old army sergeant to a batch of drunken recruits. As a rule I like preachers; but give some of them a chance and they can put on more beastly dog than anybody else. When you come to New York however don't forget Grace Church. But for a preacher go to Beecher. Ho be longs to the human family; doesn't put on any religious dog, and is sure to say something that you will re member till you next hear him if not longer ; and you can't say that of but a mortal few of the most original of mankind. Acting on Sancho's proverb " to the grave with the dead and the living to the bread" I proceeded to do Central Park about as fast as horse flesh could carry myself and friend. Tho Park is justly the pride of this people. What I mostly praise this city for is its great variety of first class amusements at all seasons theaters as woll as churches are in cluded in this good word. Those best informed say that New York eclipses any other city in the world in this resnect. First on mv list of good things is the oyster. It is re- ported that there are larger and quite US gUUU UOLOiO ILL LUC UU11 VJ1. UUU' forma, not far west ot Tucson ; bu while I was at tho Arizona capitol Cachise kept us apart. But for al practical purposes there is no discount on the oyster in tms laiuuue, an if I could afford to fight out the ance of life on this line, I wouid perhaps join church here at an earl day and say good God, (good Devil, i mi a . like an averago Christian. The Asto: Library. New York Historical So ciety's building and several Art Gal leries are subjects of continual inter est to me ; and altogether I hate to leavo this place fully as much as I hate to stay in it. With less than half a million however, a man here is but little better or bigger than any other pismire. Tho only consola tion for a .poor devil is that it takes all hands to make it what it is. From what I can learn, A. T. Stewart don't enjoy life any better than I do. He has built four marble and iron palaces for business, residences, &c, and is said to be too superstitious to move over the Avenue, (5th,) and live or stay in his new house ; is afraid he would die sooner therefor. And such is life. When in New York it is worth while to look in and around Stewart's establishments. They say about Daniel Drew of late, regarding his gift of five millions to the Method ists, that he had swindled mankind out of one hundred millions and was now trying to settle with the Lord at five cents on the dollar ! The figures in fact are a little large for Daniel but as a figure of speech, it is a great fact. Speaking of the Army, Captain Jack, &c , there is one thing I would like to direct special attention to just now, and then I don't care whether I ever have another newspaper say in The Citizen or elsewhere. When the late lamented Cardiff Giant com manded in Arizona and things were all the time getting no better fast, this 7x9 sheet stuck to it first and last that there was no need of more men to settle the Apache hash, but more man ; and that the volunteer idea would, if acted upon, involve tho Ter ritory in useless debt, vanity and vex ation. A regular soldier if rightly handled, is just as effective against Indians as a volunteer or any other man except the Indian himself. It is the secret of the present command er s universal success, to light Indian against Indian in every possible way The great objection 1 have to those volunteer expeditions, is that notwith standing they don't once in fifty times get a scalp, they inflict the present generation at least with endless Col onels, Maiors and Captains. A whole white settlement will elect itself in this way, to follow tho trail of one old buck and a stolen mule. I can recall some tour hunarea ana one titles conferred by no greater cause than tho above and quite similar, havo not seen in all these big news papers one tavorablo word lor the regular army in this Indian business Crook gets a good word occasionally, but there is not one article that does not plainly enough sneer at the regular soldiers as material to fight Indians. Gillem may not be the right man in the right place. In reply to this I told a Herald smarty the other day, that it New York city was depopulated of all except fifty old settlers, acquainted with all its caverns and passages above and below, they could kill half the regular army before being wiped out themselves. A ten-mile-square lava bed in the wilds of California is a harder nut to crack, without tho greatest of strategy The Herald here, by the way, is the biggest and beastliest newspaper ex. tant ; if it ever tries to do justice to anything, it must be the justice of self-praise. Captain Jack ought to be coaxed out with a bottle or New York whisky, blanketed gently until cooled off, and then smothered with a pillow, a la Desdemona and the Moor. Nothing like an amour to catch the sharpest savage since the days of Sampson and Delilah. Next to Delilah and tho devil nothing is so seductive as New York oysters and whisky. If Gillem has really killed Jack's squaw, as the comic papers here show, the wily Captain can bo easily managed. Ho will soon stand to havo salt shaken on his tail. Let Gillem fight Indian against Indian ; send Jack another squaw with a red blanket: Canby will be avenged and aJJ-wll be well W. From The Sentinel we learn that Cant. Nickerson and Lieut. TTncraTi with a detachment of Co. A First Cavalry and some Hualpai Indians surprised a camp of Apache-Mohaves who rebelled from the Date Creek reservation and killed five. Rev. G. A. Eeeder is preaching in Yuma. "Win. B. Hooper & Co. had shipped by Taylor & Bowell's train for Bowie 50,000 lbs. and by other freighters to same place 28,000 lbs. government kfreight, also a threshing machine for the Pima Indian reservation, and one to C.

The wea ther during tho week, has been cool and pleasant, though somewhat windy with two showers on Monday. In the cool weather the grain is said to be filling out plump and full and will be heavier than usual. Headers are very plenty and threshers enough to enable the farmers to harvest their crops in due season. Quite a number of headers are busy and cutting and harvesting has commenced in earnest. Some of the threshers will get to work during the week, and the mill of W. B. Helling & Co. is expected to begin grinding new wheat on Mon day next. New barley from tho ranch of G. A. Wilson is already in. market, which was cut by hand and tramped out with horses. Late ad vices from the Gila state that the crops there are looking fine and doing remarkably well. In this valley much alfalfa has been sown this year and farmers are turning their atten tion to raising productions for home consumption. Milk cows have in creased in numbers wonderfully lately and milk is now abundant and sells for 80 cts. a gallon. Several "batches" and families have moved into the valley lately- from California and more are coming, jfnenix is Demg built up fast and improvements are pushed iorward rapidly. Sabbath school preaching is had here m tho Court-house every Sunday and oc casionally at other places around. The Tempe people, not satisfied with Hayden' s Ferry, have laid out a new town just alongside named San Pablo and the proceeds of the sale of the town lots is to be devoted to the building of a Catholic Church. Two Padres, from the Gila, were over at the organization of the town associa tion. As soon as practicable, the Sis ters will start a school there. The Hot Springs at Agua Caliente, in this Territory, aro becoming noted as a health resort and are freely patron ized from here. Phenix. ' The Virginia Enterprise of May 11, has an article on the subject of mines of which tho following is an extract : Tor tho past two or four months two mines in Storey county, the Crown Point and Belcher, have yielded a monthly aver age of more than one million dollars each in gold and silver, and for the month of April their united product was $2,400,000j of this gross yield they divided among their stockholders the magnificent ag gregate of 1,832,000 in gold? At this rato, tho product of tho two mines would bo $28,800,000 yearly, while the dividonds to their stockholders would be $21,984,000. These two mines only occupy 1,640 feet on the Comstock lode. The yield is simply enormous, yet upon the surface the lode showed very little in dication of the wealth that was beneath, and after the lode had been worked for years and large amounts of money had been taken from it the pay ore seemed about exhausted, and the stock went down to a few dollars per foot. The last and present rich discovery in the Crown Point was made while J. P. Jones was superin tendent. Speculations had made him poor, but the first knowledge of this rich deposit was taken advantage of and it made him a millionaire and a United States senator. The Alta says that five companies of the First Cavalry, which have been serving with General Crook in Arizona, have been ordered to the Modoc country, and are now en route to the Lava Beds. Three of these companies will probably reach there by the first of Juno. The other, two companies, having to march some dis tance overland, will not be likely to reach the Lava Beds before the latter part of June. The companies nun ber in the aggregate 392 men. We havo been informed that the board of officers ordered from Arizona to purchase horses in California for tho Fifth Cavalry have been ordered to San Francisco to purchase horses for the First Cavalry; instead, the First having turned their horses over to the Fifth on leaving the Territory. Geobge H. Stewabt, Chairman of tho Parchasing Board of Indian Commissioners, has demanded an investigation of certain charges against him of corruption, in tho awarding of contracts for supplies; "'
