There was rejoicing ia Arizona last
night. The iron horse panted into
Tucson, and with its neigh gave no
tice that a new order of things was
about to be established. The horror
of that Sahara, which stretches for
many leagues beyond Yuma, are here
after to be but themes for jest; the
heart of Arizona has been moved up
within two days' ride of the port of
San Francisco ; the days of mustangs,
Indians and barbarism in a hundred
forms is over for Arizona? tlir; modern
lEvangel the locomotive has cone to
carry comfort and jov to tbatTerri
torv, and will now minister to every
enterprise and back every energy of
tne people mere. While rejoicing,
those people should give full praise to
the resolute men who have driven the
railroad down over the stubborn moun
tains and across the fearful desctt to
put them in connection with the mov
ing world. Say that only selfish
thoughts possessed their minds, if voi:
please, and that the only considera
tion which mlluenccd them was an
ambition to extend their power and
wealth, and still they are entitled to
credit. .Most men with their years,
their wealth, und with the triumph
which came of first leading the iron
horse across the Sierras, w.uild have
been content to retire, and for their
declining yean to f-cck such comforts
s their wealth would secure. But
they did not. They preferred that the
first road to enter Arizona should
enter from the west, and they have
accomplished the task. Almost all
men who accomplish much are selfish
men. When selfishness so involves it
self that its ministers arc the ministers
to the hnppiness of thousands of oth
ers, let us praise the act pertorraeu
without reservation or spleen. Enter

W. G. Stiegman and P. Dumphy
have recently made some extensive re
searches on the western slope of the
Santa Catarina mountains, about forty
five miles from this nlace. Among
the claims located is the American
Shield, on Alder creek, which promises
from the richness of cropping assays,
to prove a good silver mine. The for
mation is iu lime, rescmuhuz in near
ly all respects the Patagonia mines.
The Juno is another location near
the first mentioned, and resembling it
in every respect. The Sunbeam, Live
Oak and Sierra, owned by Messrs.
Dumphy and IJyatt, arc being worked
with fair promises of remuneration.
Some five miles from these locations,
higher up the mountain, other good
locations have been made.
In the Old Ilat District the Silver
Pence, belonging to Steigman & Co.,
has a shaft some 40 feet down, from
which assays run from .?49 to $150
per ton, $23 being the lowest in silver
On the American Flag, Pioneer, Wedge
and Black Bear, work is being pushed
rapidly ahead. Above the American
Flag, Segman has a claim the Sil
vcr Die, from which much is expected.
The San Bernard mine, located at the
head of the Canyon de Oro, appears to
improve upon sinking. This claim
belongs to Zimmerman and Parkson.
The mines of Wcldon & Co., situated
some six miles on the road to Tucson
from the Americrn Flag mine, have
been sold to James Lee, of tin's place.
Some new locations have also been
made in this District by Weldon and
Ought to be Done.
We suggest that as every prospector
and miner in the Territory is opposed
to the proposed new mining law, that
a petition to Congress be drawn up
and placed in the postoflice where
those most interested may sjgn it;
at any rate a vigorous protest should
be made against that portion which
makes it necessary to deposit fifty
dollars within ninety days after the
discover of the claim, and five hun
dred dollar worth of work within one
year. The bill may not pass, but such
a step as suggested would show the
opinion entertained for such propoal
by the men who for a century have
been the vanguard of civilization.
Lrxx Cp.ekk is turning out consid-
nmhln ?rold to rtlacer miners this

W e : mmend the perusal of the fol
lowing letter, written for the Anaheim
ua.cttc, lrom a learned gentleman,
well known to most of our readers,
upon a subject which may some day
develop iuto a remunerative industry
in Souora and Mexico. Citric acid is
now worth 84 cents per pound in 2ev

of lime juice will produce one pound of
Ed. ANAiiBisr Gazkttk: From a
paragraph in the San Francisco Chron
icle ol tlieOth instant, cunied from voui
valuable paper, I urn glad to observe
that attention is being drawn to the
subject of lime and lemon juice and
iie uianuiaciurc ot citric acul 111 vour
neighborhood. Ilavins had some'eon-
sidcrable experience in my younger
days in the produc.i.m ot the latter
article in England, lrom concentrated
lemon juice imported from Mesina. in
Sicily; and having been engaged here
within the last four months, investi
gating the amount of citric acid ob
tainable from limes and lemons, with
a view of establishing works iu Mexi-
co, I am convinced that a very profit
aoie uumucss may be done in your
neignuorhoou in this manutacture,
provided the limes aad lemons can be
delivered at a price not exceeding 1
per caigo or ST per ton, and in suf
ticient quantities to iustifv the outlav
of capital necessary for the erection,
plant, and establishing the business.
I am informed that the lime is used
very extensively iu your part of the
countrj. for the purpose ot fencing,
etc. The production of iruit from
this source should therefore be con
siderable, and at the rates I have
mentioned produce no little revenue
to the owners in the course of the
season, 111 addition to that derived
from the orchards.
If any or vour renders will com
municate with mc ou the subject of
supply and probable price, I aviII have
much pleasure iu co operating 111 any
movement likelv to lead to tbe in
auguration of this important and in
teresting branch of industrv, which

They May Include the Surface Ground
ot 'iliiiuiK Claims I.ocuted lio.ore
Thc Government will protect town-
sites when pri'perly applied for, not-
witiistandini: tlie land is mineral, and
mining claims may have been located
thereon prior to the location of the
land for a townsite. Iu the case of
the Townsite of Silver CHIT v. -the
State of Colorado, :he Commissioner
of the General Land Office, oa De
cember 18, 1S79, stated as follows:
" Protests from claimants to mines
within the tovvn limits, against grant
ing a patent to said town, which does;
not except therelrom specifically all
surface ground embraced in such
claims, and alleging location prior to
town occupation, have been received
at this office. Should the town make
entry, and patent issue thereon, it will
contain onlv the followins exception:
Provided that no title shall be hereby
acquired to an mine of gold, silver,
cinnabar or copper, or to any valid
mining claim or possession Held under
existing laws; and provided further,
that the grant hereby made is subject
to ail the conditions, limitations and
restrictions contained in section 2380
of the Revised Statutes of the United
States, to far as the same are applica
ble thereto. Jn the case of the town-
site of Central City, Col., decided by
this office December 23, 1875, and de.
cision affirmed bv the Honorable Sec
retary of the Interior June 7, IS10, it
was held that town-it j entry could be
made of land overlying lodes or veins,
and that patent should issue for such
townsite, with said reservation o--ly.
Since the date of said decision this
rule and practice has uniformly and
without exception been tollcwed, and
under it the owner of a mining claim
is secured in all those rights intended
to be granted by the law.

rived from this bustling little neigh.

look for free milling ore, which is
more expensive to work, and often a
less ot value. Charleston has a very

Agriculture on Snlt River.
From Judge C.T. Hayden, who has
recently arrived from his home on the
above stream, we learn that the farm
crs have put in larger crops than any
prc-iousyear; that the wheal, which
is the best in the Territory, and has
no superior on the coast, looks very
promising already. The wheat from
that section brings, on an average, 50
cents more per hundred than any oth
er. The Harden Flour Mill srinds
about 10 000 pounds per day, and the
demand is so great that the capacitr
will be doublet! this year. The Judge;

us that the Pima Indians raised about
2,500,000 pounds of wheat last year, he
purchasing more than half that amount
from them himself, and calculates they
will produce a still larger amount this
year. The orchard at the ferry is in

and advantageous to the party to ira-

We are sure no person who indorses
the principles of the ixreat National

step towards a permanent organiza

The rush for Arizona has begun ill

may be said with safety that no other
mining section in the United States
will attract a larger measure of atten

for the next two or three years, at
least. Colorado has been thoroughly
prospected and the favorable openings
for investment have been pretty well
availed of. In the case of Arizona,

A Wrtins Idea.
Divines, lecturers, and many news
papers, we regret to say, continue in
discussing the great social problem,
that the safety of, and hope in the per
pctuation of our Republican form of
Gorcrnmcnt, is to educate the masses.
We agree as to the measure, but beg to
differ as to the means to be employed
in elevating and cnlightoning tho com
mon mind to a just appreciation of the
glories and blessing of liberty. It is
a well recognized fact that newspapers
arc the moulders of public opinion;
that one word in printers' ink has more
influence than a hundred spoken. This
being the case, we suggest that Con-
gress pass a law aitoting one news
paper to a certain number of inhabi
tants, say one paper to every ten thou
sand people, that an able, morr.1, even
tempered man like ourselves bo se
lected tolnannge the office, which, of
course, is lurnisueu ny tue uovern-j
ment, at a salary ot not less man
$4000 a year. The poper to be fur
nished free, advertisements fixed at
such rates as the Government may de
cide. This would place the paper
above all mercenary considerations;
would make them entirely independent
of political cliques or wealthy corpor
ations, and reaching every man, wo
man and child in their respective dis
tricts, would be the true teachers of
the people. We presume it is needless
to add that as Tub Citizkn already
occupies that enviable position in this
community, there would be no qis-
tion of choice.
'Tis thus the Texas cow-lxy relates
his biography: "1 am a prairie wolf
with stee-1 horns on mv hide: I was
rai?ed on mestpite beans boiled in mus
tang blood, and my first shirt was raw
hide. My father was born on a sand
bar and sucked a cow whale, awl my
mother was a Navajo squaw; I can
out-ride a monker, out-swim a fish,
out-jump a kangaroo out-cuss a bec-
bittcn parson, ami 1 can snoot out tne
