Have plied their task with sturdy will,
But now tho field is void and still;
And, wandering thither, I have found
The bearded spears In shoaves well bound.
And staked in many a golden mound.
And while cool evening suavely grows,
And o'er t lie sunset's dying rose
The first white star throbs Rud glows,
And from the clear east, red of glare,
The ascendant harvest moon floaw fair
Through dieamy deeps of purple air.
And in among tho slanted sheaves
A tender light its glamour weaves,
A lovely light that lures, deceives
Thenswayod by Fancy's dear command,
Amid the past I seem to stand,
In hallowed J3othlehem'sharvest land!

A candid brow, still smooth with youth;

.A Wonderful Railroad,
The Railway Age publishes an ex
cecdingly interesting letter from one of
the engineers of the Oroya railway, in
Peru. It appears that this great outer-
prise of the late Henry 3fciggs is again
to be pushed forward, u company hav-
ingbeen formed with a capital of $15,-
000,000, one of the objects being the
drainage and working of a silver mine
of almost fabulous richness. The short
Mineral railway of Pasco, seven miles
in length, by means of which the ore
is carried to a water power, cost about
$172,000 per niilc, and no wonder, as it
reaches a hi&ht of 14,200 lcqt above sea
level (nearly 5,000 feet higher than the
highest railway point ou the North
American continent, Vcta Pass, ou the
Denvor and Rio Grande), and every
part of the equipment bridges, rails,
engines, cars, etc., had to be brought
nearly 200 miles, over terrible moun
tains paths, on the backs of mules.
Even the rails had to be made iu six
feet lengths, weighing only 45 pounds
per 3'ard, to be transported over the
winding, preciptous way, and iron,
bridges of SO fet span were carried in
proportionately small sections. Con-
id with thelabjr, danger and cx-
of such a work, railway build
ing pa the prairies seems to be indeed
easv and cheap. The gauge of this
xemnrkable road is three feet six inches.
Query: What would it have cost if the
rook cutting, tunnels, tills and bridges
had been made U4 inches wider.

The Man Who Swallowed a Wagon
Some two years ago a man who call
ed himself AVm. Iirazzlcton, advertised
a show at the court-house in Proscott,
which, aiiionc other wonderful
things he was to swallow a wagon
wheel. He took the money at the
door and wont out to rustle up the rest
of the troupe, who, as he said had just
arrived in town and were making then
toilet. He never returned neither did
his troupe, and now coiuos a dispatch
to the .Governor saying Wm. Brazzlc
ton is killed and that he is the man
who has been robbing stages on his
own hook. He is in all probability
the same man who didn't swallow the
wagon wheel. Miner.

Letter from Pioneer.

Editoh Citizen: As 1 pen theso
lines the welcome gentle rain is patter
ing on my humble roof, having com
menced to fall -last night at an early
hour, and stilljcontinues at 9 o'clock
a. m., but it dps not come down in
torrents as the rains usually do in
Arizona, therefore it is a good-one and
will do a vast amount of good to both
man and beast. The general health of I
the people is excellent. Developments
I believe are satisfactory -with some
new discoveries whioh will give tone
to our camp abroad despite the false
reports of bogm experts whose .sole
purpose trc t- work for money regard
loss of truth or honor.
The most important new strike was
made a short time since by Messrs.
Copclin & Cox, aud is located about
half mile' west of south from the
Mexican mine owned by Mr. Colling
wood and others. The ore is a malablc
sulphide and is variously estimated at
from Ave to twonty-flve thousand dol
lars per ton, and is found in chispas.
Scattered around pcrmiscously in the
surface dirt, they have several small
veins on the location in which the
have some Ycry rich ore running as
high as 1300 ounces per ton, and they
also have a large spar vein similar to
the McMillen mine, only not quite so
large, which runs parallel to the small
oues to which I referral and at no
distant day, I think this location will
prove equal to tho lamous Stonewall
mine at McMillen's. Such new and
important discoveries as this in
the very heart oi our camp goes
to prove conclusively that our camp
here is not yet prospected, and I firm
ly believe that some of the most pro
ductive aud valuable mines in this
camp are j-ct to be discovered, and the
future possibilities for no section ou
earth was never greater than for this

made a rich strike in the Mexican
mine, the ore body is said to be four

of Mr. Tucker, the former foreman.

and it must be verv trying on the

was not of a political nature, he has
been upon Salt river looking at the
salt springs where he now has a force

here, and the demand will increase
for it soon as the mines are developed,

Sehura's efforts' to drive working men

(From the Arizona Sentinol.)
A Pleii lor Arizona.
The rain.fall of .Arizona is not fully
understood, nor recorded. The best
information that can be gathered gives
an annual average of four inches along
tho lower Gila; twelve inches in north
ern Mohave county; sixteen inches in
northwestern Yavapai county ; twenty
inches in the southeastern part of that
county, and twenty-four inches in the
southeastern part of Pima county.
These facts alone explain many of the
discrepancies and descriptions of Ari
zona given by different writers and
travelers. One tells only of dry placer
diggings, miles from water, near tree
less plains, or amid mountains of bar
ren rock. Another writes of fine graz
ing and grand' pine forests. And still
another describes the rich soil, green
grass, running water, and magnificeut
trees found in the rain belt of Pima
county. Each is truthful; ram-fall is
what makes a country, and each de
cribes that part of tho Territory which
he has seen, or which ha3 loft the
strongest impression on his memory.
Eastern Oregon, Montana and north
ern Dakota have but twelve inches of
rain; northern Minnesota has but six
teen, twenty and twenty-four; Kansas
has but twenty and twenty-four; Cali
fornia averages but twenty around
Sacramento and Stockton, and but
twelve below Monterey. Why, then,
should Arizona be persistently regard.
ed as a sterile country, unlit for agri
culture, and only valuable for its min
ends ? We are sorry to say that such
is tho case, and that several years must
elapse before this popular fallacy can
be exploded. The error has arisen
from the fact that hostile Indians have,
until quite recently, held nearly all the
well-watered and fertile sections, prac
tically confining whites to the south
western or most arid part of the Ter
ritory. What was seen and experienced
in the latter uuturally moulded opin
ions expressed in regard to the other
unseen parts. There are men who have
lived horc a dozen or more years, who
turn with sneering scorn from the man
that speaks or writes of Arizona's rich
soil, verdant waist-high grass, and wide
spreading shade trees. Their narrow
minds cannot understand the beauties
of all that part of tho country, out of
which their fear of the Indians has
kept them. Such men have cursed the
country at home, and have misre
presented it abroad. But to intelligent
men mere knowledge of the actual
rain fall, in different parts of Arizona,
is enough to enable them to form cor
rect opinions of its value for settle
ment. Our figures arc lakon from of
ficial reports of the Smithsoniau Ins
titution. The " Nation" on Kearney.
The following article taken from the
Nation is of sufficient interest to
The recoption of Kearney, the Cali
fornia agitator, in Boston by a crowd
of workingmen, the careful reports
of his speeches by the Press, and the
editorial comments on him by all the
leading nancrs. form altogether a
spectacle that must delight Thomas
Carlvle. if he still navs attention to
contemporary politics, for Kearney is
probably the lowest type of demagogue
that has yet appeard in history. All
his predecessors of which there is
any record have laid claim to some
of tho qualities which are supposed
to distinguish the civilized man from
the savage, but Kearney makes no
pretense to anything which the read
ing, thinking, and remembering part
of the human race has hitherto con
sidered respectable. He Simply does
what the naked Bushman dobs cur
ses, calls names, and threatens death.
Nevertheless, he has in one the fore
most communities of the modern world
a considerable following, and is an
object of interest, ajd oven of deference,
to most of our politicians. He i3 worth
study because he is a kind of animal
for which neither American politics

slightest preparation, and because ne
is the first to assert a claim which
ha3 been long in the air, viz.: the
claim not simply of the poor man to
rule the State, but of the brutal,
ignorant, blaspheming ruffian to have
his way with the frugal, industrious,
nrudent and reliirious; and assuredly,
we have not seen tho last ot his kind.
Let u add and without any wish to
raise a question of party politics that
the moral and religious people of
the North, in using their influence
and the force of tho Federal authority
to procure and maintain for several
years the government of groat civilized
communities at the South, by the
grossly ignorant portion of the popu
lation, and to discredit the intelligent
portion for political .purp oses, have
been sowing the seed from which the
Kearneys spring. If Kearney make

hear of tho wondertul developments
that have taken place since work has
The Tough Nut exhibits a ledge
over thirteen feet in width, the average
assay of which is over 400. Great
bowlders of ore have been taken out
and Schicffclin Bros, and Gird have
smoto their glasses upon their fes'tive
board and sworn by the great feet
of the officers at Huachuca that the
Tough Nut shall not depart from their
hands for loss than $100,000.
The crosscut, south drift of the
Lucky Cuss tunnol lias passed through
one or two small stringers aiul is forg
ing ahead towards a fine body of ore
which crops on the surface a short dis
tance to the southwest.
Assays arc made daily from all parts
of the work and the proprietors are
pretty well informed what price their
mines can command.
Messrs. White and Parsons have
sunk a shaft fifty feet on the Conten
tion, which goes through a solid body
of ore its entire depth. Mr. Ward
Priest is foreman of the Contention,
and deserves great credit for the work
manlike manner in which everything
is managed around his works.
Mr. James Wooley and wife have
been paying the district a visit. Mr.
Wooley was chief engineer of the Mc.
Cracken tweuty-stanip at Signal, and
has been intimately connected with
mining and milling operations for
many years. Mrs. Wooley is the first
lady who has favored our distric: with
a visit. We extend a hearty wolcome
to this female pioneer and hope the
day is not far distant when many more
ladies will enjoy the beautiful scenery
and delightful climate of the Tomb
stone. Another store has been opened
by Mr. Stone.
A town-site has been projected
which lies about equidistant from the
Contention and Grand Central, the
Tough Nut and Lucky Cuss mines.
An express line has been put into
operation by Mr. James Branson which
makes connection with stages at Tres
Alamos. Ex-Gov. SafTord is expected

As an indication of the mmera
wealth of Arizona, we were j'osterday
informed by Mr. W- 11. McCormick,
an old resident of the territory who is
engaged iu copper mining at Clifton
on the eastern border of Arizona and
about two hundred miles east of Tuc
son, that the ore is so exceedingly rich
that it is hauled by team six hundred
miles to the Denver aud Bio Grande
narrow gauge railroad, and then sent
all the way to Baltimore, Md., for re
duction. There ought to be enterprise
sufficient1 to bring this ore to Califor
nia for reduction and for manufacture
into the various articles of necessity
for which this valuable metal is used
The comnunv with which Mr. Mc
Cormick is connected employs abont
five hundred men, and fuel has to be
carried sixtv miles for smcltinjr the
ore. Owing to the scarcity of labor in
that section we learn that the Copper
Mining Company is obliged to hire
Chinamen to go into tho Bocky Moun
tains and make charcoal for smelting,
but in no case will the Mongolians be
used in mining. The outfit which Mr.
McCormick is now preparing in our
city consists of three wagons, with the
usual coinpletement of mules, a fu
supply of camp equipage and stores
