All that I have this day is thine,
A lieai t whose faith has never fafter'd,
A love that knew no other shrine,
And through all changes livesunalter'd.
Had I a thousand hearts to trive.
j mine alt their love and faith should be;
I Had I a thousand years to live,
f I'd gladly spend them all with thee.
There's not a joy in all the world
Like that of love beyond deceiving,
Though bolt on bolt be at it hurled
The heart will triumphwhen believing.
Thisda- my joy hath sov'reign sway
A joy which but .with thec I know,
The rapture ofa first, fond love
Which, wedded, makes a heaven below.

i)melliinjr ahont Scotland-'- Glas
gow. Edinburgh, etc. A Week In
LoNCOX, August 8. Erom the
northeast corner of Irelaud (afc Bel
fast), I took steamer for Glasgow,
the chief city of Scotland. The run
is made across the Irish bea m one
niffht, ana is mterestiiie: lor two
things only. The steerage of the ves
sel shows the most extremelj' drunken
and filthy condition of humanity, so-
called, outside the Black Hole of Cal
cutta ; nothing else ou land ever
could reach the sains level of stench
and sin. In the cabin, we did better;
drinking Scotch whisky in different
combinations, in a maimer called gen
tlemanly by the majority. I call it
imply getting drunk on Scotch
whisky ; location already mentioned.
In sailing up the Clyde river after
daylight, a line view of scenery and
business is obtained. It seems like a
run through a large boiler factory.
The hammering about iron steamers
of all sizes, is noisy enough, and a mo
mentous contrast to uny or ail Amer
ican ship-yards. Dumbarton Castle
is the distinguishing landmark along
the Clyde ancient historical and
yet strong enough to stand a hard
siege. It covers tho summit of a pre
cipitous rock alongside the river a
small mountain 'M0 feet high. The
city of Glasgow has over half a mil
lion people and is the commercial and
man ufacturing cen ter of N or th Britian .
It is tho place to start out from to do
Scoilund generally, but of itself, not
very interesting. I went up into tho
Highlands some distance taking a
6teamer rid on Lake .Lomond. The
Scottish lake scenery I consider more
pleasing than that of Ireland, whila
most of the Scotch lakes aru useful as
well as ornamental. But speaking
of cities, Edinburgh is the chief of all
I have ever seen or ever expect to
meet with. Mature made a site there
for a city that man could not help but
conform to, whatevor the agn or con
dition. In the center and overlook
ing that (k) nobby place, is Edin
burgh Castle an ancient strong-hold
after the manner of Dumbarton on tho
West Coast, as if these two landmarks
were intended to separate the High
from tho Lowlands, and be common
battle grounds for all time. The red
coated soldiery is numerous at Edin
burgh, and 1 happened there when
they atormed the fortress in a sham
battle. The two old castles in ques
tion are the store-houses also of all
sorts of relics crown jewels and what
not. But Edinburgh is wholly like
itself. It is tho Boston of the entire
kingdom sets up for general critic,
and with much reason. There is no
standpoint, high and low, from which
a spectator cannot get a full view of
the city. This is saying a good deal,
but it's a fact that this city ofa quarter
million is so situated and constructed
on its various ridges and hills. It is
all so convenient, too ; its parks, rail
roads, hotels everything is all in
your grasp as it were. I should like to
live there always, a:.d it is the one
place or picture I could fully under
stand and shall aerer forget. Scot
land cultivation of all sorts seems to
show more industry than Ireland. I
have no doubt Scotland's being a
more favored part of the kingdom,
has much to do with the people's dis
position to permanently improve their
homes. Erom Edinburgh to London,
I came down the East Coast or along
the Gorman Ocean having a view of
land and sea together for half of the
distance through England also Tim
ivss ?ny 1 a4 C"j
any distance at fifty miles per hour
right along for four hundred miles.
"What I haveseen of England reminds
me somewhat of tho older prairie set
tlements of Illinois I mean where
the prairie is of the level or plain
order, and hedge is universal. I loft
the everlasting stone fences f Ireland
back in the Highlands. But all this old
landscape discounts anything on our
side for solidity and finish.
I have been sight-seeing in London
for one week, and it is the hardest
work I ever did, and just as soon as I
mail this letter, I will leave the place
contented at least till I come back
fronr Vienna. -There isHO'wuy"that
London is a pleasing city to glance
at: the situation is such, combined
with its irregularity of construction,
that no birds-eye view of it will show
any portion to advantage. London
is built in the broad valley of tho
Thames river, and is a misty, musty
monstrous mass of brick, stone and
iron ; no street or importance or name
is of any length or particular beauty.
St. Paul's Cathedral and tho House of
Parliament in fact all tho leading
architectural features all crowded
upon and out of sight as it were in
the general mass. I have read much
about Hyde and Regent's Parks, but
they are far from what I expected.
Hyde Park is as barren of ornament
and almost of trees as a :.Iiro of prai

Interesting Ceremonies at Prcscott
on the Commencement of the Tel
egraph Xiiue Social and Personal
Our correspondent at Preseott obliges
us with the following :
. Tuesday, September 2, at 10 a. m.,
tho first poles were placed in position
and the first wiros of the telegraph
line stretched upon thorn. The occa
sion was one of great interest to the
general public and numbers of citi
zens assisted in the ceremonies. After
the rendition of some choice music by
the baud of the 23d Infantry, tho first
sod was turned by Mrs. Crook, wife
of the General, and at the same time
a bottle of wine was broken upon the
wire by Mrs. Dana, wife of the Quar
termaster General of the Department.
The first pole was then raised amid
tho cheers of all the spectators, after
which Mr. Marion, editor of The
Minor, delivered a few appropriate
and forcible remarks, in which he al
luded to the wonderful changes
wrought by Gen. Crook's administra
tion, and contrasted the pristino
methods of communication, when it
required six weeks to receive a letter
from San Francisco, with that now
inaugurated by which w can hear
from fill parts of the world in an in
stant. He said that Gen. Crook, not
and pile up matter in Hyde Parte "in j coutent with annihilating the power
a way I despise." The ""West End" of
London with its palatial residences,
noted parks, etc., is a disappointment
But the city as a whole is a perfect
menagane or human and all other
curiosities ; there is the point with
London. Its wickedness stares you
the face on every corner at all
hours, as well ; but there is evidently
respect for law here however a
fear of it we miss in too much or
America. Tho suburbs of London
are naturallv more interesting more
hilly and easily understood. It is no
trouble to get in and out of London
if you have any money. Tho ques
tion of " rapid transit" is solved here,
and except the Old Tower of London,
nothing interested me so much as
these underground railroads; 1
watched the signal men at the sta
tions send trains after each other
about as fast as an Indian would
shoot arrows. I can better realize
now what a splendid thing this would
be for Broadway. New York could j
be made comparatively the best man
aged city in America, but when it
will to done remains to be seen. The
Sydenham Crystal Palace is one of
the great amusement places of the
suburbs and justly so. Its Park i-
something to iw.ih oi", .tint aiugether
on a holiday, there is no place that
catches so much ot the crowd as the
Palace. I doubk if I find Vienn half
so agreeble a resort. The weather
has been about eighty degrees in the
shade here, and they made a good
deal of fuss about it. But the people
show no disposition to wear summer
clothing. I never saw respectability
in dress carried to such an extreme.
The finest cloth is cheap however, and
perhaps that has a good deal to do j
with it, and that is about all I find j
much cheaper than at home. But it
looks unhappy this universal and
uniform style of bundling up tho body
in thick clothes; a whole city the
biggest of cities on dress parade in
bucTirara. I am gotting used to the
English language as thoy talk it in
t.Vnu nark of EnsrUnd. At first. I did
not know who was at fault. In Ire
land, I had to ask everybody two or
three times before I could understand
them I will devote a letter ono of
these days to hotels, railroads, barber
shops, and the smaller things that
make life beautiful and joyful forever,
in this as well as in our own country ;
but specially in tho United Kingdom
of Great Britain. So far, T "ould live
at the Fifth Avenue foe about what
this thing costs per day, ai d yet I am
just as sure to starve to ceath no, I
will go over jon the Ehiae and camp
out for a week and rocriiit up. I
know what to expect i: DutcMand.
In tho first place, I won't2xpeot any
thing. The .only good .iing arrange
ment I got used to at once and loved,
was at Killarney Lakes. O'Sullivan
kept it.

arrived yesterd
with fiirht rboue
San Diego
of our old foe, the Apache, had now
turned his thoughts to the material
development of Arizona and had de
termined to annihilate space. His
remarks were frequently interrupted
by applause.
Gen. Crook was then called upon to
make a few remarks, but declined,
requesting that Capt. Niekerson, his
Adjutant General, be called upon to
speak m his stead. Ur the Captain s
speech, we have the following con
densation :
The course of armies had been gen
erally marked by the destruction of
railroads, the demolition of bridges
and all that could be of benefit to the
enemy against whom they fought ;
but the object of all wars carried on
by civilized armies, was-peace, and
this attained it was their duty to co
operate with their fellow-citizens in
the development of the resources of
their country. This was especially
the case with our military establish
ment; always ready to protect our
banner from the assaults of enemies
in time of war, in time of peace, it
was always on the frontiers enlarg
ing the boundaries of civilization, or
sriving aid and assistance to science.
The labors of the Engineer and Sig
nal Corps were cited in illustration ;
the one improving our rivers and har
bors, the other warding the mariner
of the storm which endangered his
safety. Expeditions were now at
work, one in Nevada, another in Da
kota, surveying and exploring re-j
gions hitherto unknown ; here m Ar
izona, tho little band under the order?
of Gen. Crook, had conquered the sav
age foe. the Apaches, and was now
under his instructions engaged in
making roads which should benefit
the commerce of the Territory, by
shortening and improving its routes
of communication. To-day, we have
assembled to witness the commence
ment of a work which shall unite
Arizona to tho great world of thought;
tho telegraph' is the precursor of tho
railroad and the railroad will bring
capital and men to develop tho coun
try. It was not necessary to particu
larize all the names of those who had
aided and encouraged this project
from its first inception to tho present
moment. One (Gen. Crook) was al
ready well known to the people, an
other avo-s his superior commander,
General Schofiold, Generals Sherman
and Belknap had lent the aid of their
influence, nor wore tne untiring ei
forts of the Hon. Mr. McCormick to
bo forgotten. The Territorial press,
sustained by that of the whole Pa
cific slope, had not been silont and
tho result is here before us. The
speaker uttered fervently tho wish
that tho telegraph might carry no
messages but those of peace and pros
perity to tho East, and amid enthu
siastic applause, retired.
It should bo stated that Lieutenant
Dove, 12th Infantry, with one com
pany of that regiment, has been or-
tween Yuma and Maricopa Write.
Never in the history -of V
have there been so iuny maniu "fa

the fuliowkoj ladies have rooently cr
rived: Mrs. Thomas, Mrs. Trout,
Mrs. Corbusier, (wives of officers), and

Prom the Preseott Miner of August
Tho rate of taxation in Yavapai
county for 1873 is $2.50, on $100.00,
and is to bp apportioned to the differ
ent funds as follows : To Territorial
general fund, 23 cents ; to Territorial
school fund, 25 cents. To county
general fund, 1.75 ; to county school
fund, 25 cents.
Tho county assessor's list shows
that the citizens of Yavapai county
are possessed of 750 horses and mules,
12,000 horned cattle, 6,000 sheep,
2,000 hogs, 3,000 peach trees, 1,000
apple, pear and cherry trees, and fi.000
grape vines.
Mr. J. H. Lee, owner of "American
Eanch," twelve miles northwest from
Preseott, got homo this week from
New Mexico, with over 1.000 sheep,
including a dozen fine blooded bucks.
Messrs. Eice & Jaycox have fin
nished working five tons of ore, at
Bowers' water mill on the Agua Fria,
from which thev saved -S175.00, or
$35.00 per ton which was a yield of
$15 per ton more than they had cal
culated upon. The ore was from the
Cornucopia lode, in the Black Hills, a.
lode we have previously referred to as
being a good thing. Mr. Eice natu
rally feels well over the result ob
tained, as well he may, for he as
serts that there are from 300 to 500 '
tons of just as good ore at the v-:n,
lying on top of the ground.
A. TV. Callan, Captain Sumuel (
Bartlott and thirty-three others, with
a traiu of fifteen wagons, arrived in
Proacott, Wednesday last. The party
came from Junction City, Kansas, and
are provided with means to settle in
any section of the country which
pleases them and to engage in farm
ing or mining.
Miss Kelly, with whom tho school
trustees of Preseott have had some
correspondence, who is expected to
take the Preseott school in hand, canto
from San Francisco by tho steamer
Newbern, was at Ehrenberg on the
19 th and will probably arrive in
Preseott via Mohave about Septem

The following dispatch was sent
oat from Washington August 27.
How much of truth it contains, we
do not know but hopo it is in the
main an exaggeration. At present,
so far as we can hear, tho Indians
seom contented with their treatment
and apprehensions of an outbreak are
not generally entertained in this part
of the Territory :
According to information received
from gentlemen of high character m
Arizona, recent developments m ihat
Territory have shown that there has
been great mismanagement and prob
ably fraud in the conduct of Indian
affairs there. It is not alleged that
the agents have all been dishonest,
but it is claimed that through outside
pressure they are being forced to re
ceive supplies of an inferior quality
at ruiuous prices, tho appropriations
being exhausted before tho year is
half gone. There is great probability
that many of tho Indians will bof
compelled to leave their reservations,
and Gen. Crook's year of hard work
