The stono work on the Canyon Diablo bridge is completed, and the grand structure is now ready for the iron work. This bridge will not only bo tho highest, but one of the most substantial on the continent. It will be 540 feet in length and 225 feet high. Tho work of construction has been entirely under the supervision of F. W. Smithy su perintendent of the road, and Lewis Kins man, chief engineer, while T. F. Richard son is the engineer who has had the im mediate charge of r.ho structure. tTho cost of bridging this vast canyon will be' close on to three quarters of a million dollars. Trains will run over it by May 1. Albu querque Journal California Nugpot3. The first piece of gold found in California was worth fifty rent, and tho second, 5. Since that time one nugget worth 43,000, two $21,000, one $10,000, two $8,000, one C,500,,f(tur.$5,000vtwiilse.wottfcfTOm-$2, - t ner i A trr "1 - T L f C' 1 AATl 1 uuu to ,uuv, anu etgitieeii iniiu fi,wu m $2,000 have been found and recorded in the history of the State. In addition to the above numberless nuggets worth from $100 to $400 are mentioned in he annals of Cali fornia gold mining during tho last thirty years. The first referred to were exchanged for bread, and all trace of tl em was lost. The finder of one of the $1,000 pieces be came insane the next day and was confined iu the hospital at Stockton. Pennsylvania Oil Company. - Tne case of the state of Pennsylvania against the Standard oil company, an ac tion to recover $3,000 000 tax on capital stock assessed by counting officers for the state, came up for trial at Harrisburg February 20. The ground on which the action was taken is that any foreign cor poration doing busines in Pennsylvania is bound to pay a tax upon all dividends earned in the state and out of the state. TJie Standard oil company, notwithstand ing all its oil comes from Pennsylvania wells that it owns, announces that it does not do business in Pennsylvania, and con sequently is not liable to a tax. General Fremont's Claim to Alcitraz Island A Washington dispatch of March 3d says, that Senator Johnson presented a petition of Gen. John C. Fremont, who claims ownership of the Island of Alcatraz, in the bay of San Francisco, formerly known by tlie name of Bird Island. General Fre mont purchased this Island in 1847 while lie was Military Governor of the Territory of California, for the us&of th Government. He was arrested hj 1848 and courtmgrtialediat Washington"-! for.. Quaking InTlRlrlinSFwiflicuraulhority. rThbG6v .eminent repudiated tlie transaction and re fused to pay for tho Island. The'fevern ment, however, subsequently appreciating its importance, erected lighthouses and for tifications on it. Gcner.il Fremont claims that he paid for it, and that the Govern ment has no claim whatever to its owner ship. Fremont now ietide3 in Xew York. The petition was referred to tlie Claims Committee. One Thousand Million Letters. During the year which ended on the 30th of June last, there -were carried in the mails of the u nited States more than one thousand million letters. As the popula tion ot the country is rather more than fifty million it follows that on the average, men. women and children, every person in the country sent twelve letters during the year, aud received the same number. The development of the modern post- oihee is one of the most remarkable fea tures of our present state of civilization. Hie increase of its business gives constant surprise to all who observe it, and yet no person has an idea that any near limit can be fixed to its expansion. In 18C0 the entire receipts ot the Post- otiice Department only slightly exceeded eight and a half million dollars. In 18 0, there were nearly nineteen millions. In 1881 theyrauie near thirty-seven millions. It is not drawing very much upon the imagination to estimate that by 1890 they will exceed seventy millions of dollars. The United States has tho oljeapest postal system in the world. It is true, the single rate of letters, three cents, is fifty per cent, more than the British penny rate, but the average distance which letters are carried in this counts is more than twice that over which they are carried iu England. Mount Ararat. Ararat is divided into two peaks, Great Ararat on the north-west and Little Ara rat on the south-west, whose bases blend whjle their suinputs are mijes ajjarj. The summit of Groat Ararat is 1,323 feet above the level of tho sea, and 14,320 above, its base; and for more than 3,000 feet below the smmmit it is always covered with ice and snow. Little Ararat is 14, AQQ feet aboye tlie' sea level. The apex, of Great Ararat was visited by Parrot, October 9, 1829. Dr. SchrafT, in common with Smith, says that Ararat in Scripture refers to the lofty plateau or mountain highlands which overlook the plain of the Araxtj-s. The saiie authority states that the mountains of Ararat (Cen. v;ii.,4) more properly refer to the entire rauge of ele vated tableland in that portion of Armenia and upon some lower part of thes rauge, lather than the high peaks, the ark; niore probaly rested; and the following reasons aro given in support of this view; This plateau or range is about 0,000 or 7,000 feet high; it is epually distant from Euxine and the Caspian Sea, and between the Persian Gulf and the Meditarean, and hence a central point for the dispersion of the race; the region is volcanic in its origin, does not rise into sharp crests, but lias broad plains separated by subordinate ranges of mountains; and the climato is temperate- grass and grain arc abundant, and the harvests aro quick to mature. These facts he believes, illustrate the Bi uig narrative. NANA, THE APACHE CHIEF. A Pen-Portrait tr the Sitting Bull of tne Southwestern Territories. Nana is not hereditarily a chief, but has probably more influence with the Mezcaleros, a tribe of Apaches so called from their fondness forjnezcal, the American aloe than any other man. He really tried to be good once I believe that is as good as an Apache can ever hope to be but with all his influ ence, that of the bucks under him was stronger, and he had to obey their behests, or lose his power. Like all his nation, Nana is short of statute, wears short hair, has a full round face, eyes that dart fiendish light whenever ho looks at you, a slight body, thin arms and well developed calves, the lat ter peculiarity coming from the habit of run ning, early inculcated- among, all those In dan3T'Bawi'him"first at Fort Grant, a post" at the junction of the San Pedro and Ari vina rivers in Arizona in 18G5, and I should judge him to have been thirty two years old at that time. Ho and his Mezcaleros, with a lot of Tontos Spanish for fools another tribe of Apaches, came to the Fort and camped, saying they wanted to be helped and taught to farm. There must have been two hundied of thorn in all, and my men dug a ditch to irrigate land for them, but they only stayed a little while. To some further questions relative to th Apache the i-Maior renliotLthat.in 18G5 they were not on reservations and were armt4-fcL ne most a j rr"?5w f Dart with bows and arrows, which a? not eiiective at a greater distance than yards, but since they have secured tho bes kind of Winchester or other magaizine guns and seem to have no trouble procuring car tridges ad libitum. They are a puny race filthy as tlie Diggers in habbits and appear ances, and wear a shirt and belt and moo as-sins made of antelope or coyote hides, and are utterly destitute of finery of and de scription. They will eat, steal or kill any thing possible, and don't know the meaning of the word faith. The Navajoes, some of whom arc said to havo joined the Mezca leros, are just the reverse of the Apaches so far as physique and appearance are con cerned, and are tall, well formed, muscular and handsome. Ex. Tlie north has long prided itself on its apple-cutting parties, husking bees, with luscious rewards to the finders of red ears, taffy pullings, sugaring off times at maple sugar camps, and many other in nocent diversions that the world afforded no equal to, but the laurels have at last been ruthlessly torn from its brow by the latest southern merry making, known as the "orange wrapping. Piles of the golden fruit and packages of tissue paper are furnished, aaathejroKTigtfoifcSRt.eaea dexterous twist enclose an orangp in its paper cover. A darky musician strum the banjo accompaniment to the songs the workers sing, and picks time for the reels that follow tho evening's task. As for refreshments, while there may be a lack of doughnuts and cider, who would not enjoy fragrant, juicy pineapples, lus cious banannas, and big oranges, red and yellow, to delicate for shipment to mar ket, but delicious to eat? Reverend Dewitt Talmago of Brooklyn ha3 presented, a bojd challenge to the great infidel. In one of his Sunday morning ser mons he said that he had learned that Colonel Ingersoll's mother was a good chris tian woman and that he did not like the Westminister nor Shorter catechism. "Per haps," continued the preacher, "he will an swer a question from Talmage's cafcschism How did religion seem to agree with his mother? Did it make her kind and loving and patient? Did it give her comfort in the day of trouble? Wa3 she deluded with it to the last? He is said to be a brave man. i diro mm to take his mothers Bible on some Sunday afternoon and go in to his room and lock the door, and kneel down and read the fourteenth chapter of John. Veisrat of a Million Hollars, In answer to an inquiry by Assistant Sec retary French, the Government Actuary, E. .hihott, h?a furnished the following in formation as to the weiqht of a million of standard silver dollars: The standard silver dollar of the United States contains of gold of nine-tenths 25.9 grains, and the standard silver dollar contains of silver of nine teenths fineness 412.5 grains. One million standard dollars consequetly, weigh 25,800,000 grains, or 53,750 ounces troy, or 4,57y 1 0 pounds troy, ot D,7bU grains each, or 1,645 "long" tons of 2,240 pounds avoirdupois eaclt. One million standard, silver dollar weioht 4.12,500,000 graius, or 85Q,37?i ounces troy, or 71,014 58 pounds troy, or 58,G2g,57 pounds avoirdupois, or 28,404 -"short" tons of 2,000 pounds avoirdipois each, or 2Gj309 "Jong tonot U,J4U pound avojrdupols each. tiii Tho Popo expects to purchase for the Vatican, says an Italian paper, the larg est topaz in the world, which weighs seven pounds, and upon which Chirella and his son, the famous lapidaries of Na ples, have been working ever since 1833 fifty years ago! It is now about com pleted, and has carved upon it Jesus breaking bread at the Isl Supper. Later. A prominent New York hotel clerk has just left for Naples, and wjJJ qiitpid the I'ope fqr t?m couossai gem, He will decorate his shirt bosom with it, his four pound diamond failing to any onger outshine the jewels of the bank cashiors and editors who frequent the jotel, The most astounding item in the York- town bills which Congress is asked to set tle is $25 for water furnished the guests. Nobody is surprised at the large sums required to pav for the other fluids dis pensed, as $1,450 to a "Washington res taurant keeper for refreshments fur nished on the steamer which carried down a crowd of oifipiuls ami tlioir cronies, but that S25 for water is suspicious and should be looked into. St. Louis has a horse with a genuine case of small-pox. "IT WAS THF! PIE.' In the night solemn night, I awoke in fearful fright, And my chest Seemed o pressed. As if lead, heavy lead, A ton or more of dead Weight was pressing, cruelly pressing, On mv chest f nd a demon with 'a pie hot mince pie, Perched upon mv bedpost high; And blue deviis Held their re els O'er my biain, achine brain, Backeu with pain. And ke. t dancini!, madly prancing, On my brain. Then I cry, wildly cry: "Give me rest or let me die ; Let me sleep, Sweetly sleep." But the demon perched on high Yes ! the demon with the pie Hoarsely shouted, "Never, never I" Quotn the devils, "Hardly ever!" Then the joke, heartless joke, t tartled me and I awoke, " Awoke, In pain, Half insane, . AndjBald,-aliaply caidf . '1)6 l cream, or am I dead ! Have I fallen out of bed?" From the gloom there came reply: "dUent be, It was the pie!" ToeOnto Obit. Mohave Mall Eouie. A telegram from Mr. Hugh White, of Chicago, to James Roseborrough, who has so promptly and satisfactorily performed the arduous task, through sunshine and storm, of carrying the U. S. mails between Pres-. cott and Fort Mohave, informs him that the new contract has been awarded to a Mr. Parker, who, it appears is an old contractor with the P. O. Department, but not on the Star route roll. Roseborrough proposed in his bid to threo times per week from Prescott to the ColtTfSS2.nver and return, for S10.S90 per year, and aTltkJajddid not ker's bid is much lower. The old contractor has given general satisfaction, and the peo ple along the line were anxious to see him secure the contract again. All that is de sired of the new man is that he perform the duty as well as it itas been in the past. we havo had reformed drunkards, re formed gamblers, reformed clowns and vari ous other reformers come beforo U3 to call the ungodly to repentance, but now conies General Abe Buford, the veteran horse racer of Kentucky, who will wake up the sinners under the guise of tho "reformed turfman," aud wj may soon expect the sanctuary to resound with his sanctified "hoop la," as he takes the wicked under the wire at a rattling pace that will leave the devil distanced on tho first heat. All his protracted meetings will be best three ii five and if the devil attempts any jockeyin at the scoring ho will be ruled out of the race. ' . Bi? Gold Ledga Fennin Mejia, who has made some mo pey mining m tins section, -has recently dis covered, near Widnut Grove, 25 miles south of Irrescott, a mammoth ledge J0O feet wide. which is hlled trom wall to wall with veins of high grade ore, at once making it worthy of noto and much consideration. Ho is quite sanguine that it is by far the greatest gold ledge in this section, and believes it to be the equal, in value, of the Silver King in Pinal county. We hope the ledge ia all that is claimed for it. The ore is free mil ling ore, and the 40 or 50 lbs. we have seen is permeated with grams of frold. This mine may prove to be a great wonder, and wo would not mind taking a deed for 100 feet. "Banc," brought into legal language from the French, means "bench," and comes to us from English law. "Banc Regis" was the title of king's bench, which was aboye all other courts, an appeal to which was final. The "court in banc" therefore means the supreme court of the district in full bench. Prescott, the mountain capital of this Territory, has emulated the city of New York in forcing the season. Both have had a mad dog fight. TEx. If Prescott has had a tight it wa3 genuine, not a newspaper sensation for the purpose of damaging the reputation of some .good man. However, our dogs are all peaceably inclined just now. Ed. Miner. It is a hard year for Christians all over the world. At a Christmas eve service in Uvarre, in Spain, a pack of wolves en tered the church, and did not quit until they had. killed three and seriously wounded nyo of the congregation. It is not stated whether they were in sheep'i clothLag, but probably not. The old man sighed as he took the golden- haired, laughing boy upon his knees, and, stroking his shining tresses, said : 'Ah ! how much I should like to feel like a child again." Little Johnnie ceased his laughter, and, looking soberly up into his grandfather's face, remarked; "Then why don't you get mamma to spank you?" A house of public ontertainment in Bax ter street, New York City, has on its bill of faro: "Coffee, one cent; beefstake, one cent; rolls, one cent;" and so on tlirough the list, which culminates in the offer of "a square meal for- five cents." Whether it is the long talked of "Editors' Home" i not sta ted, but it probably is. New York.City has a realty valuation of two billion dollars, yet only $91G,000, 000 of it is covered by assessment for taxation, so that over one billion dollars of property in that city oscapes taxation. Seventy million rubles is the extent of a recent deficit in a single Russian cus tom house. Although the news has not reached this country, it is evident tha the Democracy have carried Russia. A crazy man all broken out with small pox is at large in the city of Buffalo, N. Y., and hides from tho police day times and roams the streets at night scattering conta gion broadcast. "Women's rights" is progressing in Swit zerland. Women can nw hold property there in their own right as soon as they be come twenty-one years of age. Since the sentencing of Guitcau to hang on tho 30th of June next there seems to be but little interest manifested in regard to him. i ....... . ,, carry the nraJ- Teleg'raplIc. SMASH CP. Los Angeles, March 3. Tlie east bound freieht and emigrant train, on leaving here last night, parted on the eastern slope of San Gorgonio Pass, two emigrant coaches filled with people, being detached. Two miles east of Whitewater station the doT tached cars caught up to the forward part of the train and went crashing over three loaded flat cars and one box car, crushing them.
