C.U'T. FOKTEU'S SCOUT. The Report of Capt. Porter 1ms been re ceived at Department Headquarters. It gives the particulars of his recent scout in smirch of the Iinliuns who commit tod the doprodutions in Green Valley. Ho scouted the entire country east of Camp Verde into Tonlo Basin, to the Mogollon mountains on the north, nnri North Fcak to the south. The Inte rains hud obliterated the trails and the depredators, who hatl killed the hort.es in Green Valley, could not bo tracked. The llrst thing Capt Porter found was ten, of the eleven, head of cattle reported by the cottiers of Croon Valley to have been : run ott by the Indians; they had simply ! strayed, through the neglect of their owners, j Seven lndinns witli ponies were next orcr- hauliHl by the scouts, nnd narrowly escaped I being wiped out by the Vcrdo coutj be fore they could make known that they were on jm3. They were well armed ttud had plenty of ammunition. They were from 25 to 50 miles beyond the limit allowed by thoir jvaaoes. They were well frightened and had n fortuunto escape, as the scouts seldom give time to surrender or explain that they have iHTinisidun to be absent. Capt. Porter found that the reports of greni unmoors ot luuians leing in the Ton to Basin were great exaggerations, and that thu horses killed in Green Valley were shot by these Indians from San Carlos who are now iu the guard-houM) at San Carlos Agency. In shooting the horses one bf the Indians was wounded, and the party hasten ed bock to San Carlos for medical attend ance. In ascertaining the cause of the In-diitii'- Mound the deed became known at the Reservation, and the Iudihns were arrested and confined in the guard-house. This in formation was obtained from the captured Indians on pass. Capt. Porter was out from Soptember lflth to October 1st, marched 2JJ5 miles, not including "boot scouts" by the Indian sol diers. III.ACK w.Yititroit. Mossrs. Wollonberg and Ellis havo re turned from the Rlitck Warrior mine, on which they with Mr. Ruins and others have a bond, britiidni; with them a box full of ore, taken out of the shaft 1 10 feet from the surface by Mr. WoUeuber, who is repre sented to have devcloR"d an amazing amount if muscle in the handling of ihe pick, ham mer and giul. The specimens shown us arc rritlently rich in native silver, which is nlain- Iv visible to the miked eye, as well as black sulphurcts, which constitute the real value of the ore. This rock conies from below the water level, and mav therefore be con sidered a fair sample of what may be expec ted to come from beneath, as the character of silver ore rarely changes very much after that depth is reached. The ledge at the bot tom of the shaft consists of one foot of soft gouge, containing more or less sulphcrets j of silver, and two feet of the rock of winch the specimens brought in are an average sum pie. This is the mino so far as it, is be ing worked nt present, though there is an indefinite amount of low grade ore and bar ren ledge matter which is very h .rd nnd has therefore not liven cut through but is be lieved, from indications on the surface, to be not less than twenty-five feet in width and may contain other ore streaks of equal or greater richnoe than the one on which they arc sinking. At a depth of thirty fuet further, they propose to cut through the ledge and see what it contains. The Black Warrior is now considered ,pne of the solidestand surest mining properties in Arizona. It is not quite so rich as some others but for pertnan anee it gives evidence of being tirst-class. The Clerks' licit. The movement among the merchants of Prescott to close their stores on Sunday seems to be a good one, not only in a moral and religiou- point of view butasasanitury tneasure. Clerks, salesmen, bookkeepers and porters, as well as proprietors, need rest, nt least one day in seven, and without it the stronger constitutions must give way. One day's rest and recreation in seven has been found by the experience of ages to be necessary, and the human constitution is so organized that it cannot hold up and main tain its vigor without it. This is not especially n Christian move ment, although the Christian Sabbath has been selected as the day on which to test. Our Israelitish fellow citizens, whose sab bath occurs on Saturday, nnd who regard that day with as much sacredness as the Christians do Sunday, have joined as heart ily iu this movement as those who have been reared in the Christian faith. They recog nize the necessity for a day of rest, and as they happen to be in the minority in this country, cannot reasonably expect the ma jority to adopt their Sabbath, so they lay aside their scruples and conform to what appears to be a necessity. They could, of course keep open on Sunday and close on j Saturday, but such a course would be atten ded with a great ileal of inconvenience, and they are entitled to much credit for the ac commodating disposition manifested in this matter. It is an unfortunate circumstance that tho whole world cannot agree upon a comiiion Sabbath or day of rest, it would accommodate the wants and conveniences of trade ns well as labor, and it docs seem that there is a smack of bigotry in the sects, that has for eighteen hundred years kept them one day apart on a matter that God Almighty can care but little about so that a day is cnl nnnrr ntnl b-nur linlv Thr .Tnw li!v ., , . ..- .. .. ., tllO advantage Oj the qilCStlOtl 111 tllC matter of date, and it IS and nlwslVS lias been II mooted question as to the right of a conveu- . I . . n turn of Christians to miiKc an arbitrary cliaiifo from Saturday to Sunday. a- rf - - - "Wlclionburjr Item.

The following extracts are taken from Col. Hiram C. Hodge's new book, '-Arizona As It It,:" "In the valley of Rill Williams Fork, and along its tributaries, the Sandy, Santa Ma lia, and other creeks, there are many tracts of excellent farming lnnds, in all many thou sand acres. These tracts are mostly in Mo have county, and embrace nearly all the tillable laud iu the valleys of that county which nre at present supplied with water. There are large valleys, however, in the count), such as the Sacramento nnd Iluala pni valleys, which have a rich soil, but no water to irrigate until artesian water is ob tained, when they would support a popula tion of thousands. On tho summit ot the mountains, und the table or mesa hinds, there are many places where otatocs and other vegetables grow well. One of these localities is on tho summit of the Hualpai mountains, where Mr. Similiters has raised large crops of potatoes for sevoral years; and several uthur localities could be mun ioned. In Yuvnimi County there are scores of smaller valleys than thoe heretofore men tioned, containing from a few hundred to several thousand acres of choice laud each, where wheat, com, vagetablos of all kinds, all thu common northuru fruits, ud excel lent potatoes can be raised most success fully. In tiie aggregate there nre in these valleys over one hundred thousand acres of good land, aud these beautiful and pleasant valleys have a certuin charm about them which is drawing to them scores of families who arc building up plensaut homes, and happy tlresides. The pure mountain atmos phere which surrounds nil the little valleys iu the mountainous regions of Arizona is drawing to them a large share of the pres ent farming immigration to the Territory, and especially of families from mnnyofthe States and Territories. Tho most prominent of these small val leys in Yavapai County are the Verde, Wil liamsons, Pceples, Kirklaml, Chino, Skull, Agua Fria, Walnut Grove, Walnut Creek, Reaver Creek, and scores of others, which arc now being settled up and improved. Go whoie one will in all parts of the Ter ritory, in the foot-hills, and through the mouutuins, pleasaut and delightful valleys are continually attracting the attcntiou of th explorer, many of them having springs i ot clear, crystal water, and otteu oue will find small rills and rivulets which are sufii cient to supply tho wants of many horses, cattle nnd sheep. There evidently was a time in the long jmst when there was far more running wa ter in Arizona thnn now, when many of the large valleys, now destitute, were well sup plied. Climatic changes, the filling of the valleys to a great depth by a rich alluvium brought down from the mountains by water erosion, and perhaps other causes, have operated to make them destitute of water, and consequently uninhabitable, until water shall be obtained by artesian wells, or oth wise.

This time he followed him through his second mission, which carried him to Athens aud Corinth, and embraced the first introduction of Christianity into Europe. ; niui nnti namauns mm a nine unpleasant ness at Autioch, aud Paul accused Barnabas ot nepotism, in wishing to take witli them in their proposed mission John Mark, a nephew of the latter, who had deserted them on their trip to Cvprcss. Paul ob jected and they disagreed so violently that they separated. Rarnaoas took lus nephew and went his way, and Paul took Silas and proceeded to Rerbe aud Lystra, where he fell iu with a young man by the name of Timotheiis who pleased him, aud ho took him longnlso and went throughout Phry gia, and passing by Mvsia came to Troas. Here it was that Paul had a vision ot a man from Macedonia standing over him and uttering tho cry, "Come over into Macedo nia and help us." Recognizing this as a call to preach to the people of Macedonia, they went via of Samothracia to Ncapolis, and on the Sabbath, which was probably Saturday, went outby a river and converted a woman named Lydia, whom they bap tized, with her household, aud these were the first Christians converted and baptized ou European soil. Here Paul got into trouble by commanding a divining spirit to come out of a woman, but got out of it, nnd converted the jailor who had them iu charge. They next weut to Thissalouica and made accessions to the Church, but met with per secution and departed to Rerca, where many were added to the Church through their teaching. Their next move was to Athens, the most enlightened city iu in the heathen world. Here the preaching of Paul met with marked success. And here it was, on this trip that he preached his celebrated sermon on Mars Hill, from the text, "The Unknown God." From Athens they proceeded to Corinth, and entered into copartnership with a Jew from Italy, in the tent making business, by the name of Aquilla. Thcv remained a long time in Corinth, and Paul, taking leave of his brethren, sailed into Syria, and after stopping at Ephcsus a short time he left, to be in Jerusalem in time to attend a grca feast that was about to transpire. Apollus appears to have taken his place at Corinth and elsewhere in that region. This mission of Paul lasted three and a half years. THE DUXKAKtlS. This is a denomination of Baptists that originated in Germany in 1T0S, came to Pennsylvania, under the leadership of Alex ander Marck, and are still quita numerous in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Indiaua, Illinois, Kansas, Iowa and Missour. Under no circumstances can they be in duced to take part in war. Litigation is absolutely forbidden. In dress they re semble tlio Quakers. Their ministers re ceive no salaries. Thoy hold very much tho same doctrines ns the leading Orthodox churches. Thoy practice the washing of feet as n religious ceremony, nnd in per forming the ntc of baptism the candidate kneels m the water and is dipped three times, face first, at the mention by the minister of the names Father, Son and Holy Ghost. In partaking of the Lord's Supper they cat a full evening's mrnl nt the close of the day. Instead of shaking hands they greet one another with n hofy kiss. They anoint theirsick with oil in the name of the Lord. They do not allow their members to wear gold or silver, nor to follow the fashions of the world. They do not allow their mem bers to join secret societies, and generally live in neighborhoods to themselves. Their law against fashions is as sacred as the Ten Commandments, and yet they are as great sticklers for their own fashions us the Qua kers or Monks or Nuns. Tho number of Dunkard communicants in the United States nt present is about 100,000. They print a paper in English in Lanark, Illinois, called the "Brethren at Work."

The pcoplo of Yuma were surprised to hear the rumbling of n loco motive on Madison avctiue, at an early hour this morning, for when the shadows of eve ning rested upon the surrounding sand hills nnd the busy hums of animated nature hnd given place to tho sleeping quietude of night, tho sound of axe or hammer was not heard and the stillness of the hour was unbrokcu as "night drew her sable mantle o'er tho earth and pinned it with a star." The laughing waters of the Colorado coquet ted in the starlight ns they glided on to tho Sea, when an army of workmen appeared unon the western bank, and the work of track-lnying was commenced. Positive or tiers had been received from tho War De partment, by Col. Dunu. commanding Fort Yuma, that no more work should be done on the military reservation by the raiload company for the present, except what was necessary to strengthen and secure the biidge; but before the Colonel was aware of what was going on, California and Ari zona were united by iron rails and although he appeared upon the scene of action with one soldier, armed and vouipped. and,- by virtue of the authority in 'hii vested, de manded a suspension of hostilities, ho was treatad with no more consideration than shown by Joseph to Gcnanil IIoward,ex ccpt that he was invited to take a drink, which he proceeded to do. It was noticeable this rooming that the national colors were not displayed at Fort Yuma as usual. So it may he inf rral that the Army has surrendered to Stanford & Co. The Railroad corporation hit long been considered oinnijKitent, but tin- mo-t credulous ditl uot believe that it pns.M-ssel sutlicicnt temerity to defy the Department of War. At eight o'clock this morning tho advent of the pioneer passenger train into Arizona was noted, and the shrill greeting of the locomotive aroused us to a realizing sense of the fact that the iron evangelists of civilization would soon bring the echoing caverns of the Colorado aud the worn out wastes of chaos within a Sabbath day's journey of tho Eastern seaboard. F. L. B. G. Yuma, A. T., September 30, R?7. . ImUv Taluie "Yank." Applcton's Journal for October contains an article by n member of the Wheeler expe dition, on Lake Tahoe ami its surroundings, which embodies a very readable sketch of the well known "Yank Clements," the origi nal of one of the Clarence King's "Xcwty's of Pike." The following is an extract : Yank emigrated from the Green Moun tains to Nevada wnen Lake Tahoe was scarcely more familiar to geographers than the Victoria X'yanza, and delights in re counting to visitors his earl v "experience. which he does with many amusing peculiar tics of phrase nnd gesture. "I civilized the Indians, sir; yes, sir, and taught them Chris tianity! When I camo here, sir, a man's life wasn't worth shucks, sir; when they didn.t kill, they stole, the dorg gorncil cusses! I taught em to bo honest, sir. The first sou of a gnu I found stealing, sir. I tied him-up to a tree and whipped like ! Yes, sir; ' With tremendous volubility he delivers each sentence, and then draws back with arched eyebrows to observe the effect on the hearer. n0 is a man of great foresight and prodig ious plans. IbTtook me by the arm, oni one dav, and pointed mysteriously hint pine tree in front of his house. "See that sir? T am going to build a grotto in them highest branches: outlook on the lake, sir! A fish-pond with a little Coopid jerkin' wa ter down here : a billiard-table and a pe-an-er in the house. I don't fancy pe-au-ers much; there's too much tum-tum about em. Give me a fiddle; but we're go'in to have one yes, sir! Nicest place on the lake sir!" He invariably winds up with this declaration, and no oue can go far astray in acquiescing. . ... Vandever vs. Jeffords. Our riTer Ex changes show that Indian Inspector Vand ever has been a trifle over-anxious to rush into print with a view of placing the respon sibility for this Indian outbreak. His char ges against" Capt. Jeffords are very sweeping, and of such n character that, if Vandever is able to sustain them with proof, the ac cused has a fair prospect of spending a few years in an Eastern penitentiary. We de cline to enter judgment, however upon the mere statment of Gen. Vandever. We hold the word of Capt. Jeffords to be equally good, and presume he will not delay in pre senting his views and counter .representa tions. Through the columns of the News and Independent, the charges scc squarely made that Jeffords has sold liqnor to -these Indians nnd that ho incited them to this outbreak. The same papers will doubtless afford the Captain an opportunity of presen ting his side of the story. The colums of the Herald arc at his service for that pur pose much as we deprecate controversies. It is but due the Independent and News to state that they have treated this matter with entiro impartiality merely prrsi-ntirg In spector Vandevcr's statements, without en dorsing or becoming resporsible tlwrrfor. Silver City Herald. According to The Engineering and Mining Journal, the quickest piece of railway con struction on record Is that of the Philadel- j phia and Alantic City Rond. The distsnco i ic inline flirt ctn ihto 1)1' 4YtBt n m irr it excavations there is one of 40,000 cubic yards; among embankments, ono of 1,S00 feet long, using 23,000 cubic yardjrof nrth, which was built in a week; of bridges and culverts there arc more than 100. The whole road was constructed in (It days, and in time for a largo summer excursion travel. The work is highly spoken of as a credit able piece of engineering, and it had the unusual merit of coming within the esti mated cost. ' S I ' " 1 Emma Geddcs, a coucubine, in, polygamy with a citizen, claimed the right to vote by reason of her illicit relation with Geddcs although she was herself an alien; and hav ing voted at Plain City, Utah, was fined five dollars nnd costs. Judge Shaeffer in passing sentence remarked that the alien wom en of Utah had got it into their heads that a polygamous marriage with a citizen gave them the rights of citizens, but they arc mistaken, buch unions arc unlawful, and instead of conferring rights they take them awav. The Saints' nerald, organ of the Joseph ite Mormons, says that when Drigham Young became President of the Church there were 130,000 Mormons baptized into the Church. And at the time of Rrigham's death there are not more than 120,000, a falling of M, 000 in the 5)3 vcars of Brigham's reign. The reputed scarcity of young men at the watering places this year is confirmed by the testimony of the young men themselves.
