Monroe Hot Springs.
At last the fabled "Fountain of Youth "
vhas been discovered in the recesses of tho
mountains of Yavnpai county, Arizona.
Monroe Springs were discovered and located
three years ago by George Monroe and Ed.
Farley. They made a trail to the spring,
and that constituted nil the work done lor
three years. They were re-located .May 27,
1877, by Jesse Jackson, who intends build
ing and making a permanent residence. The
springs are about sixty miles south of Prcs
cott. Tho best route to them from Prcscott
is via Walnut Grove, from thence to Oak
Flat, from thence to Willow Creek, from
thence to tho head of Castle Creek, from
thence down Castle Creek iiftecn miles. The
spring issues from granite rock, at the head
of a small canyon, (lowing about twenty
inches of water, which runs through a rockv
canyon about half a mile to the mouth on
Castle Creek, whero it sinks in the sands.
The temperature of the water at the head is
about 131) degrees Fahrenheit; about 200
yards below tho temperature is reduced
about twenty degrees, making it excellent

The water when cooled has u very agreeable
taste, and can Iks drank in large quantities
without producing anv disagreeable effects,
It resembles snow water very much in taste
and feeling. It washes clothes without any
soap or scarcelv anv labor. It will cradi
rate all thu dirt from a miner's shirt after a
three mouths' prospecting tour in about five
minutes. There are several patients now at
the springs who can testify to its hcalim?
qualities. Unlike the generality of medi
cated watcrs.it has no disagreeable smell or
nauseous taste, but is in reality a pure dis
tilled water, compounded in nature's Jabro
lory. There is about five acres of arable
Jand on the creek; no frost ever falls, and
vegetables, fruits, etc., can bo raised every
month in tho vear. We look for these
springs to became the fashionablo resort for
all the invalids of Arizona.
Immigration statistics for the year 187G
show that Great Britain furnished to the
United States 42,243 of the 157,540 immi
grant arrivals, but, of this total, Ireland,
which has for many years sent us greatly
the majority, contributed only 10,500. This
is but 11,820 more than came from Wales
and Scotland, and is 4,545 less than tho
English supply. The German arrivals were
nearly double, and tho Scandinavians fell
less than 4,000 below. There were one
third as many from Russia and from France,
and 872 more Chinese than Irhh landed
