J. C. Cahiil has located what ho consider?
a valuable silver lead in Ikadshaw district,

If we may give credence to the dispatches
comiDg through Turkish sources, the Rus
sian army is in full retreat. During the
past two weeks, the foi tunc of war in Asia
lias has been with the Turk?. According
to the reports received, the Russians now
defeated, they cannot renew the attack this
feason, because there is no time to bring up
reinforcements. Only some ten weeks re
main in which the campaign can proceed.
Owing to the mountainous condition of the
country snow falls early, and is. in many
respects, bimilar to the Sierra Xevadas or
the heavy snows of Colorado and more se

with this early approach of winter military
operations must close. At the outbreak of
the campaign Mukhtar Pasha, in command
of the Turkish forces in Armenia, was set
down as incompent. Russian otlicers were
represented as possessing all the material
requisite and necessaries to a quick and
decisive overthrow of the Ottoman Empire,
ljut quite the contrary has been the result.
The Russian troops captured the fortresses
of Bayazid and Ardahan without much
difficulty. Kars was quickly wrested, and
its early capture was anticipated. 3Iukhtar
Pasha's army comprised a total force of
C3,000, and opposed to him were 120,000
Russians. The capture of Kars proving a

sufficient to invest it and marched on toward
Erzeroum with the intention of making a

Death of Jvtxik Hackus. Judge Henry

on which they have an excellent crop of corn
and potatoes." Next came Mr. Scnteney, on
Mrs. Stcinbrook's farm, and who also has a
good crop. Then Mr. Dowd's, with a fine
crop. All tho crops along this creek seem
to stand tlr want of rain surprisingly, as
there has been none since the spring rains
ceased. Our next call was on Mr. Scoley,
whom, unfortunately, wc found prostrate on
a bed of sickness. His case was considered
by some as critical, yet great hopes were en

soon set him right.

passing a grave on the roadside, where I was
told, were the remains of Milton Hadley, a
man whom Arizona's early settlers were glad
to respect, but was slain by the wiloy In

Then over a range of low hills to the farm
of John Gcavcr and Isaac Goodman, on a
small stream called Turkey Creek, a tribu
tary of Walnut Creek. Here the crops corn
and potatoes look well, but arc just com
mencing to suffer for the want of rain. Then
to Mr. Hall's on Apache, another tributary
of Walnut Creek, a beautiful little farm with
flourishing crops. Then back to Walnut
Creek and turning up the creek first came
to the farm of Mr. Ralph, upon which this
year crops have nearly failed. A call on
Mr. Wilkes, on the farm of Mr. Epperly,
whose crops look well. Then to the exten

Michael Crahan, several acres of flourishing
vegetables, with an abundance of water for

calves in a corral by the roadside, and as wc
