At several places along the Gila river, the telegraph line is stretched, over the road, and the wire hangs so low that the larger freight wagons cannot pass under without coming in contact with it. When one man is with'a large freight wagon, he cannot raise the wire and drive the team, too, and In some of these places it Is im possible to drive out of the road. This is true of a place but a few miles below Mo hawk Station, and we believe also at Mc- Gowan's Camp. One day last week a teamster could not drive under the line nor around the place named below Mo hawk, and was obliged to go through It. The next morning, Mr. Monroe, stage driver, with some assistance, succeeded in connecting the broken vire but then it hung within three feetof the road ready to bo broken by the next teamster who 6hould attempt to pass alone. It is our opinion that the best and only effective way to fix the line at those places, is to put an extra pole on both sides of the road, or put in much taller poles than those in use. Probably the whole line from Tucson to Yuma could be thus put in safe order with twenty extra poles. Of course, a team and a few men would necessarily have to pass over the whole line. We are informed that the line from Prescott to Maricopa was so built with reference to the crossings of roads that not a break has yet occurred at them. A few men with a team could in two weeks 6o repair the line from here to Yuma that it would never again be brok en by teams passing under it. From all we could hear along the line, the team sters do what they can to avoid damage to it, and are very anxious to have the sug gested repairs made. If made, time would in future be saved and the working of the line not be nearly so often Interrupted. Sampling and Reduction of Ores in san Francisco. The San Francisco Bulletin of the 13th, gives an interesting account of the busi ness of reducing various kinds of ores in the city. Following is an extract from the article and many of our readers will find it of Interest to them: The leading sampling establishments of the city are those of the California Quartz Crushing Company and C. F. Knicker. The process of sampling ore for sale neces sitates a nicety that may readily be imag ined. The purchaser relies solely upon the sample in estimating the value of the ore and the price he is willing to pay for it. The ore is sampled in this manner: A certain amount is taken at random from a shipment and spreid upon the floor. From this the workmen gather a goodly quantity and run it through a French burr mill. After the ore has been pulverized as fine as meal it is spread out again, and samples are taken up here and there in a miniature shovel, which holds about a tablespoonful. A large phial is then filled and sent to the assayer, who determines the sum the ore will yield to the ton. Some ot the ore at the California Company's works has sampled as high as $4,000 per ton in silver. Copper ore sent from a mine in Shasta county is actually metallic, having been precipitated through a solution of water in the vein. The cop per ore generally comes from the mines of California, Montana, Nevada and Ari zona. Copper is given a special promin ence because it is in active demand. But it would appear that the demand for other ores is increasing, and promises to be per manent. The gold, silver, cinnabar, and lead interests are an looking up, and im portant shipments have been made from a number of new mines within a few months. In a late number of the Army and Navy Journal, we find the following: The leave of absence granted Capt. S. C. Kellogg, 5th Cavalry, March 24, 1874, from headquarters department of Arizona, is extended four months. A board of examination having found Capt. William Nelson, 21st Infantry, in capacitated for active service, and "that said incapacity is due to rheumatism, caused by ill-treatment while he was a prisoner or war in the hands of the reb els, trom July, 1803, until November, 1864, and to severe hardships and exposure in curred in his attempts to escape from im- Írisonment," tne President directs that lis name be placed upon the list of retir ed officers of that class in which the disa bility results from long and faithful ser vice, or from sickness or exposure in the line of duty. In conformity with sections 16 and 17 of the act of August 3, 1861. Capt Nelson, it will be remembered, is the officer who was in command of Camp Grant in 1871, when the guns of the Unit ed States were turned upon a party of pros pectors from this place. He has for over a year been at Hot Springs, Arkansas, and is still there with his family; This Is the way a Florida man expects to get a partner to his bosom. He adver tises as follows: "Any gal what's gota cow, a good featherbed, with comfortable linens, five hundred dollars in good, gen uine slap-up greenbacks, that has had the small-pox, measles and understands tend ing to children, can find a customer for life, by riten a small william ducky, ad dressed X. Y. Z., and stick in a crack of Uncle .Billy Smith's barn, jinin the pig pen, where Harrison Reed is now plan ning for future operations." It is expected that a number of Arizo nans will be in Washington at the open ing of the bids for Indian supplies called for by advertisement in to-day's paper. Excepting for beef, samples of articles pro posed to be furnished must accompany bids, and as It is only a month and a few days until the proposals will be opened, parties in Arizona have little time to lose o got their samples to Washington. The Los Angeles Herald despondlng lyasks: " Won't somebody come forward magnanimously and agree to fire off a gun or something on the coming Fourth?" Coi Bigklow writes that L. A. Stevens of Prescott, is a candidate for Delegate to Congress, . A PiQCTA- girl: who bad a quarrel with a a lover remarked to a rneüd mat "sne wasn't on squeezing terms, with that fraud any more."
