Hclliugs Si Co.'s Improvements in Roads and lands Improve ments Generally--People Hopeful of the Future, Etc. Phenix, Arizona, September 19. "Without saying mucli to rny creditors or anybody else, I left Tucson on Tuesday September 16, for a ha3ty trip to and from Prescott. With, a pleasant night and good company, the 'time passed agreeably and with out dragging to Florence, where the stage passengers and all others who can get down before the table is full or the hash all devoured, fill them selves with viands and so forth fur nished by Henry Glassman. Continu ing on I reached this place on "Wed nesday evening at 11:30. Upon arrival hero I found district court in session. Two grand-juries had been called and discharged, and yesterday morning another was or ganized to inquire into the killing of George Douglass by Joseph Dawson at Kenyon Station, and this morning indictment was returned to the court for manslaughter and the jury discharged. This does not seem to carry out the impression that the kill in? of Doue:las3 was unprovoked murder, but probably the evidence would not warrant an indictment tor the full degree of the crime, as often m 1 n. is the case, xo aay a (jauiauiau is being tried for the murder of one of his countrvman some time apro. Judge Tweed thinks the business of the term will close next week. AiTiono- the attorneys present, I ob served Messrs. Eusk, McCarty, Oury, Alsop, and Irvine, and Mr. Howell of Yuma was here a few days ago. C. L. Minor of The Yuma Sentinel is here. A paper is being circulated to see what encouragement can be had for him to bring his oihco to Phenix. I am not advised as to the amramt likelv to be subscribed. Like other sections of Arizona, the people here feel liberal enoagn dug nna aoout enough obligations to meet without incurring any considerable voluntary ones. Wm. B. Helliucrs & Co. have re cently put 40 men at work on a road directly trom this vaiiey to uamp Yerde. Captain Hancock is out doing the surveying and J. W. Swilling and one or two other citizens are giving some assistance. Maj. Yeil thinks the read can be made at a moderate outlay, and by it freight can be sent to and irom Jrrescott and V erde at one cent and a half per pound less than by Wickenburg. The people of New Mexico are making a strong effort to secure the trade and furnishing of supplies for Yerde and unless this road be completed, it is quite likely t.Vinv will be successful ugrainst all Arizona competitors, save by those who grow produce m v erde vaiiey. messrs. TMliTinro & Co. have a larero interest in the nour and produce trade of this alley, and by another year expect to haw miicli Dacon ior saie. xueir steam mill is turning out an average of 12,000 pounds of the best of Hour per sun of twelve hours. Tho wheat grown in this valley is white and plump and maires tne very nnesc oi Hour. There is no present sale ior bran, and hence the firm is purchas ing hogs and will soon nave enougn frnsumo all the refuse and un- sn.ln.hln stuff about the mill. It is refreshing to look in and around this ill. and also the 'buildings and nvements about it. The firm has a very large tracu oi iuuu auu iu Pfinflv n.rtded the Swilling: farm. Ap ple and peach trees and grape vines are "-rowing thriftily, and a few poa ohpcTrmfined this vear on the very young trees, and next year there will probably be quite a supply oi grapes and nn!rVhps Lonff TOWS of COtton- woods, some poplars and other shade trees are growing ra-pidly, and castor beans nro nlcn n.hnndant. J-iOokini? back three years when I road over that ground covered with nothing but sage brush and greasewood, without a drop of water in sight, the present view is an tne more pleasing anu en couraging, as showing what water and well directed labor will do ; and what may bo said of that particular set of improvements, save the mill, may be truly remarked of many farms for fifteen miles up and down this valley. Farms that had not a tree on them and hardly one in sight, are now sur rounded with trees from twenty to fifty feet in hight. Owing to the low price of grain this year, many feel gloomy and some have sacrificed good property and are looking for other and better locations ; but I am gratified to know that the mass of the people have confidence in the excellence of their lands and the certainty of the superiority of this as a farming sec tion. Now the Gila is almost dry at Morgan & Co.'s crossing, and Salt Kiver is full of water and so are the many ditches that thread this valley in p.vflrv direction. "Water is abund ant here, and so far as experience serves as an index or the tuture, a scarcity need never be apprehended. All kinds of vegetables flourish well. Sweet potatoes are mealy and specially of fine, large growth and produce larp-p.lv to the acre. Mr. Buck made pretty liberal sums of cash fioin a few acres last year, and. off his six acres this, will realize a few thousand dollars. Onions, beets, cucumbers, etc., grow to perfection. I deferred this writing: till too late an hour to-day, and hence must omit mention of many subjects oi interest until another time. The buckboard is ready to start for "Wickenburg and I must drop this and go along. J. W. "We take the following items of in terest from The Miner of September 13: D. E. Poland and Ed. Powers were attacked by a few Apaches on Big Bug Creek. Poland's horse was kill ed. The Date Creek Indians have had some sickness among them since they went on the Yerde reserve, and prob ably these were some of the disaffect ed who were leaving, and to keep their hand in, were practicing the old game once more. Mr. Minor, of The Sontinel, was at Prescott and talks of moving his pa per from Yuma to Cerbat. Fred. Henry and P. Smith had cleaned up forty ounces of gold from their arrastras in Kirkland Yalley, the product of seven tons of Eainbow ore. Eain had been plentiful in Prescott. "W. Z. Wilson had submitted plans for a fire-proof county building, which was accepted by the Board of Supervisors. Hugo Eichards had just returned from New Mexico, where he had purchased 1800 head of cattle for the reservation at Yerde. September 11, a boy was born to the wife of J. C. Potts and died on the following morning. September 12, Louis Wortman died of consumption. The Elliott Brothers at Prescott are mailing an excellent quality of matches. We hope the trade of Ari zona will patronize them. A VEHY disastrous financial panic occurred in New York, and many failures have taken place, among them, Jay Cooke & Co., Fisk & Hatch, and Eandolph & Co. The lat ter is son-in-law of 1 nomas A. bcott and his banker. At last accounts Yanderbilt was creating a reaction by buying heavily m railroad stocks. The cause oi the panic is attributed to the hostility of the people in the Western States to railroad companies, which has caused foreign capitalists to withdraw their investments. From dispatches to the San Diejro Union, wo learn that Lieut. Wheeler had arrived at Salt Lake Citv and re ported that " the topographical and geongicai results oi tne survey in Eastern Arizona are perfectly won derful. A country was discovered with macnificent parks, trees and woods, far exesedmg any portion ot Colorado. We see by The Minor of 20th inst., that according to previous notice, J. H. Marion was married September 16, to Miss Banghart of Chmo Valley. There seemed to be general rejoicing in Prescott over the happy occasion, and we of Tucson send congratula tions and a sincere desire that the newly married couple may have a a long and happy lite. FliCttl The Sontinel we learn that work commenced on the Arizona tel egraph at Yuma. September 19, and that it is expected that the line will be coinpletdd from San Diego to Yu ma by November 15. A boy named Wm. LeEoy was killed recently by a box falling on him. Eegular trips bv steamer will be made every twenty days between San Francisco and the mouth of the Colorado. The district court will commence in Tucson, October G. On the same day the law provides that a session of the district court shall be commenced in Mohave county. Judce Porter is absent from the Territory, and Gov. Sallord has designat ed Judge Tweed to nom court in ma stead. TO THE PUBLIC.
