Editor Miner: The harvest is at hand nud the golden fruit is being gathered in, ripe and heavy. For a season the husband man absorbs public attention, and the miner works and toils amongst the rocks, less noticed. The yield of grain upon tho acre is the present theme; the pound, and cents ser pouitd. is all the talk, and not the yield of silver to tho ton, as usual. The change is marked and pleasant, both to car aud heart, for with all our gladness at a splendid har vest with all poetic rapture &bimt Nature's yearly promises fultilled, the average man knows that "there is inonevinit,''and that's the rub. Debts contracted during the past ear are paid off and a solid credit for the omiiig vear is opened, besides, moncv in lard "clinkers" roll about. It is estimated that this crop of grain along the Gila amounts to three millions of muntls, of a value in round numbers of $100,000; and this is a fair estimate. Our fanners are also enjoying the gathering of a ucntitnl hay crop, and their orchards, vinc- ards, and vegetable garttens and holds show a very rapid advance over preceding soasons. It has been said that the potatoc will not grow to perfection, but 1 have seen as tine otatoe.s taken out of the reound within a ewdays as the average Irish potatoc iu the San Francisco markets. For example, Dr. hitnont, whose farm is about two miles from Florence, has a crop of splendid po tatoes, some arc G to 7 inches long, large, white, and when boiled they burst open, lealv anil mellow. It is evident trom this and the crop iu other places along this river, that as tine a quality of Irish potatoes will "row here as can be desired tor lamdv sc'.and the potatoc, vou know, is a big dumb in the pudding. The agriculturist lere has certainlv a line field, but he must be an intelligent and industrious man, who will work out the problem of "abundant uid good crops ' under tho peculiar circum stances existing, of soil, climate ami water. Ie must not take for his infallible guide the experiences of other States, nor the prac tices of thu native.-), but he must studv the situation and master it, and then I am sure he can produce auvthing that can bo raised from tho ground elsewhere, requisite to supply all the wants and tastes of the coun try. Our farmers must not expect to grow rich bv sitting iu the shade and driving the peoncs in the sun, uor feast on the fruit of others toils; hut lie must, like other profes sional men, handle the subject for himself, and the more of his inT-mml skill he ap plies, the more eminent will be his success. He has then the advantage over the miner in this, that his life is neithorso laborious nor so hazardous, and even if he does not tumble into a fortune in a day, lie has none of the disappointments of blasted hopes and lifelong expectations. The latest sensation is the arrest of an Indian (name unknown) for the murder of a Mexican, on the night of the 1 1 tit inst., near the village of San ford. The .Mexican's wife tells the story that four Indians rode up to the house and called the Mexican out to drink liquor, and soon afterwards they rode him down under their horses' feet, and then stabbed him in the breast with a knife and killed him. Our efficient officer, Du Pngh, "came and saw. and conquered "one of the murderers, who is now reposing in the shady jail awaiting justice. The "Capital" juke which Tucson says you people plaved upon them does not otfoct us in me icasi, except so i:ir as u aiiomuu us iiie great pleasure of receiving a call from his- Exccllencv, Governor Hoyt and wife, on .1.-1 :...i i... I.:.. excellent Secretary, Hon. Mr. Gosper-all , ot whom left upon us the most pleasant nn- prcssions e telt a temporary regret ha , Florence had not won the Capital, so that i we might have them with us always. The Governor of course met, during his brief stay, many old friends and acquaintances; and the Secretary, being a new comer, who is lively, afiable and witty, ready for a joke, to yive or take, made lots of acquintan ces, and also found some companions of his youth. Thus rolls on the time. We aro freo from small-pox, epidemics, and grumblers. On home polities we "staud firm," and on the foreign topic, we are on the Dan U. B. AKI'.OXA MILITIA. Captain Euford, of the illustrious Arizona militia, arrived in Tuscon on the 10th in stant with a portion of the Arizona scouts, the balance were to arrive in a few days, when all would be paid oil', mustered out and sent home to the San Carlos. The tax payers can realize the injustice inflicted upon them by organizing and keeping this militia in tho "field until the whole amount of the ten thousand dollars appropriated had been exhausted. The Ari.oua militia has been otlicered by men antagonistic to General Knutz, ami the otlicers and soldiers of his command, aud thoy have not left a stone unturned in trying to find Indians, for self aggrandizement, and to lower the soldiers in the estimation of a few interested, but where there are no Indians it is indeed hard to find them. Not a single Indian has been found, therefore none have been killed. The rais ing of the militia was an unwise and insane move, and entirely unnecessary. Those who were the originators of the scheme to raise this uncalled for 'rabble, when the country was being protected by Uncle Sam's troops, will be held responsible for the squandering of the people's money. We have heard oV no salutes being fired oh the grand enterance into Tucson of the warriors fresh from the fields of glory (?) and victory. Pat saw a lady passing along, and espied two strip5 depending from under the Indie's cloak. Not knowing that these wore styled sashes, and wore in tlio right place, hu ex claimed: "Faith, ma'aui your suspenders are untied." AKIZOXA.

These ruins extend over a large imrtiouof Arizona, and consist of tow ns and cities, both in the great valleys and plains and in the mountain region. Great irrigating canals were piade by the old race who once peopled the coun try, some of them being over fifty miles in length and from twenty-five to fifty feet wide. Some of the largest buildings, which were no doubt temples for sun worship, were two or three hundred feet in length, and one the writer measured, :i30 feet long by 150 feet wide. In the vallevs the houses were made of concrete, and iu the mountains of stone. If tune will permit, a ttiturcdcscrip tion will be "iven of some of them. WelMNOTON ON THE EASTERN QfKSTION . Tne Duke of Wellington said in "The Ottoman Empire stands, not for the benefit of the Turks, but of Christian Europe; not to preserve Mohammedans in Power, but to save Christians from a war which neither the object could be defined, nor the extent nor the duration calculated " And when Russia was threatening Turkey in 1807-8, the Duke expressed himself thus in the House of Lords: "The Ottoman Power has long been an ally of this country. The Ottoman Power is an essential part of the balance of Power in Europe: and the rev olutions which have occurred, and the changes of provinces which have taken place .

The tree commences to bear usually about the seventh year, and it is found to nourish in countries no better adapted for its culture than the Valley of the Rio Salina; therefore, we can see no reason why noble groves, spreading like a silver sea, shall not take tho place of the primitive mesquit, that a few years since lined the borders of the grand old river that has coursed through'the allu vial bottoms for untold ages. The "labor of the olive" is extremely profitable, and it will continue to yield its fruit to extreme old age. Instances arc recorded where the tree has yielded its oily berries for twenty generations. The School of Mines in Colorado is hav ing a good infliioncc, and is attracting the attention of niinorologists from all over the world. A list of the metals of that State embraces gold, silver, copper, nickel, lead, cobalt, selenium, tellurium, uranium, in dium, thallium, cadmium, bismoth.pletinnm, molybdenum, and vanrdium, various forms zinc and iron ores, and a telluride of mer cury. Many of the foregoing have only been discovered during the past year, and those principally by scientific men who are taking an intent in tho Mining School, and doing much to bring Colorado to tho frout rank as a mining atttu-. Mon wi: County. A letter from Hack berry gives us very ihittoring news from that mine. The owners have their shaft sunk to a depth of lr)0 feet, and have the satisfaction of knowing that their oro at the bottom is worth four hundred dollars to the ton, in sulpliureta aud antimonial ore. The Company's mill is running regularly on tailings,and turning out large quantities of bullion. The now mill which the owners of the Hackberry very recently purchased in San Francisco, is now at Ilardyvillc, aud will soou be on the ground and up.

I am also informed that there is on tho road a stock of confections, and that ere long we shall be enabled to satiate our selves with ice-cream and sich. As an ex ample of the manner in which business i done in this country. I will cite the lollow ing: It was recently discovered that a Drug stock would be a paying investment iu this community, and this fact gained publicity. Mark the cftl-ct. One stock has already arrived here, another has just left Yuma, aud another San Francisco, for this place, and a few more counties to hear from, Call in a returning board. Ed. Colonel Ruggies, the erRcieut Land Reg ister, informs me that business is exceed ingly brisk with him, and that his sales are immense. A great deal of land is being taken up, under the new Desert Land Law, n this section of the country, andthcrearc quite a number h -re -eekfug- such land who seem to cxpenenes a little dhiiculty In finding just rhitt they want just iritrc they want it. Rusiuess in tho mining districts is much as usual. The shipment of 24,120 pounds of Silver King ore. by Matt Cavaness' tram, on the od inst., and a small lot by Daguer res' train yesterday, being the only iteui3 of any moment from'the mines recently. The arrival of Mr. Phillips, (ilarncv's right-hand man , here ye r lay, and his departure hence to the Kin,it is report ed, to pay off the miners there for the lit $t time in several months, is a movement which will be hailed, with joy by those worthies, and a little spirt in business matters maybe anticipated here. No items of consequence in the Courts. The plan adopted by our etlieient Sheriff, of forcing the priioners in his charge to make adobes for tho now Court-houe, is an ex cellent one, there being ncarlv enough of thctn made for that structure. ; , The thermometer yesterday stood 101, but when the operator informed us it was 103 at Wickenburg, 112 at Yuma, aud 1 01) at Stanwix, we were happy.
