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
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.

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.

nine soon to be Nsiicd from the press. 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

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

vate the olive, which is a very hardy tree
and requiring but little if any care in its
ctiltuie. 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
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
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.
