To-rlay, we bid farewell to 1S7.1; ami our renders bliall lie sptnvl tltp Inilictinn of the "customary remark." It Is ended gone worn out. Let us drop it as we would an old ihoc. It is dead ami useless What do we care for the fleeting pleasures it atl'ordud us 7 They will last but a brief time in our memo ries and in the coining year each one is con fidently looking forward to greater enjoy monc.s. The batch of trouble, trials ami vexatious disappointments which old Sev-cnty-three brought to us are now, thank God, bums! in the ashes of the past, and we will not refer to them. In the languago of a great statisraan, "we w II take a retrospective view into the dim future and see where we stand." Ten years ago the first hardy pioneers of Northern Ari zona, a mere handful of men prospectors, miners, explorers wintered in these moun tains. Placer diggings on Lynx, Granite, liig Dug and Hassayampa creeks were rich enough to make money plenty, and, though freight from the Colorado river, the nearest point of supply, was twenty-live cents per pound ; and bacon, beans, lard, coll'ee and sugar were each a dollar a pound, and flour forty cents, no body suffered; and the evidences of mineral wealth, in quartz, were everywhere o abun dant that all were rich in anticipation, and hopeful of speedy realization of their desires. In 1SGI those hopes wero blasted by the outbreak of the infernal Apaches, and the history of our sufferings at their hands needs no repetition. The attention of men of means who wero interested in mining, which was oagerly directed to Arizona, was turned aside by our Indian war, and, a little later, com pletely diverted by the completion of the Central Pacific railroad through the rich min ing regions of Nevada and Utah. Tho past four years of drouth put the cap-sheaf on our stack of set-backs, and here we are. 3Iany, alas, how many, who wero pushing to the front a deeade ago, havo been victims of the arrow, bullet and scalping-knife of the red skinned savages. Others, after years of en durance, lost their nerve and left us for other abodes. Tho ranks havo been kept full, however, by recruits from other sections of Uncle Sam's domain, men imbued with tW restless spirit which is always urging r -ace into new countries, aud our progr" cen iinrvtMcf,- tiiouh very -U w. A un of lJ7i rises.it wUi hm on the rrUble home of aomt 12.000 A-iavnsrjA, '" tsMs Aey4,'itfi tteir tti;lc, s and household gods around thsux, vxl i thf cabin, in the rvmntaiiw, of bun fds of aar 1 fisted miners who are deter mined to stay with thti mines of pro en value, until they mako their fortunes, or grim death calls them to end their labors. All these are rejoicing that the light of a new year seems to bring with it the dawn of prosperity; that our Indian foes are con quered at last, and so nearly brought under completo control, that tho farmer, miner, or stockraiser, can each pursue his avocation in comparative safety. We arc to-day in tele graphic communication with tho whole world. In a short lime tho railroad will af ford means, of rapid transit for freight and travelers, and though we do not expect the millenmm to commence in 187-1, wo do look for more permanent progress in population, wealth, and development of our resources in the next twelve months, than in any two of tho past ten years. Resources of Arizona. Our old friend R It. Haines, Kq., who has just returned from Arizona, where he ban been superintending tho construction of the mili tary telegraph, illustrates tho resources of turn country thus : "Remove tho Apaches from Arizona and there would be no soldiers, remove tho soldiers and there would be no greenbacks, tako nway tho greenbacks and there would bo no white mon, for there is notuing eibe to Keep tliem there." According to this statement the Apaches aro tho foun dation of prosperity, ami tho Government do.:i tho right thing in sending Quakers to nourish,, cherish nnd encourago the develop- mem, ot uus great source ot comfort and wealth to tho hardy settlers there. Ho fur ther reports that a two bit meal in Los Angeles (one of Johnny Moore's best, for in stance,) is a feast for a king compared with the mess of dirty beans furnished down there for one dollar. The barbers charge one dol lar for cutting Lair and fifty cents for shaving a Christian. Potatoes aro eight cents per pound, nnd tho necessaries of life nro held at feUivation prices. Tho picture would be a gloomy one, if drawn' by any ono but Haines, in hU quaint, inimitabfo way, and even as be tells it it makes us feel' thankful that wo livo in Los Angeles aud not in Arizona. The abovo item wo clip from the Los Angel es Wttldy Mirror, and our first impulse was simply to refer to it briefly,, but in order that all our readers may participate in our feelings, we conclude to give tho artislo entire, and refute some of tho statements therein. The impressions of Mr Haines, or Ida statements, or thoao of any one man do not amount to anything as effecting tho welfare of Arizona eventually, but now, when ufter ten years of perpetual warfare, wo aro just tasting tho pleasured of peace, when thousands have been waiting until tho Apaches were whip ped, u come to Arizona, the publication of such unwarrantable statements is calculated to bo uunporarily damaging to the interests of the Territory. For years it lias been our constant prayer that tho power of Govern (intnt or a postilento would rid uof the Apa ckh. We ivould rejoico to day if every Indian in Arizona couM bo rcmovcil totlie In dian Territory or tuo South St a Islnmln, never ftgatn to pollute tlio earth of Amona with his foot-stcna. . , Of course, then, there would bo no more contract or supplying Indians on resorva- llo,,', "mi ,,,mlt T,, r.-.ove.i, the , , ' I"1'101 uu wo rigiinotlts of tro? now in tlio Tt-niVorv would he withdrawn, inul tluru :ru h ,,,;,,,,,ri! r,,n,cu r,,r trai" tio,lt qiiarturninstor 3 Hiipiilii's, etc., ami no mure cruenuacKS ctrctliatru ly tlie Mtltlicr, but Mr Haines is badly mistaken in suppos ing that the white men would leave Ari zona. It Iim been the presence and ho.tility of the accursed Apaches that has kcpt'iii from assuming our proper position. As there is a time in California, between when the time tho winter rains kill tho dry gras and the time when the new grass started by those i tins is grown enough to make good feed, when cattle grow poor and die for want of nourishment, so it would be herewith men if, nt one move, Indians and military should both be taken out of the Territory. Thuro would bo a brief season when vert ically who aro employed by, or in a hundred ways dependent on Government operation i i. . . in Arizona lor a living, would have nothing to do a (mason when the market fop tiro- duce, now largely kept up by furnishing mil itary ami tmiian supplies, would bo very dull. Hut a better state ofaiKiirs would soon occur. Mining operations on a scale com meniurato with the size and richness of the gold, silver, and copper mines which ore found in every county in Arizona would soon be inaugurated, and show the world that we are no more dependent on Government disbursements lor our support than the State of Nevada, or Utah. Tho mere fact that stockraiscrs from Cali fornia, Texas and New Mexico, after an ex amination of tlU country, have driven thousands of sheep and cattlo hero during tho last few months, and are coining with thousands more in tho spring, is of more value than pages of such assertions as thoso made by Haines. In Prescott, if Ifaincs had a bath or got his hair cut at tho harbor's ho was charged a dollar, and half a dollar for a shave, lxc:iue there Ls a monopoly of thoso luxuries in the town, and until more business induces and will support competition, we don't expect a change of price. Hut Haines' reference to tho dirtv bean, for a dollar a mess, and .tho. starvation prices of food here, is a little aggravating when the old settlers have lately "been congratulating themselves living is getting cheap. Provisions at retail, in Prescott, now sell at the following rates: Hour, S10 per hundre;!; bacon, 'M cents; ham, 35; beans, 10; codec, 40 to CO; sugar, 25 to 35 ; beef, 20 to 30 cents, accor ding to the cut; pork, 2-5; mutton, 15; ven ison or antelope, 15 cents per pound; chickens and wild ducks, 50 cents to l each ; fresh fish, 40 cents per pound ; potatoes, by tho ton, slow of salo at 4 cents, but rctailincr at 5 cents per pound ; beets, turnips, onions and cabbage, 6 cents per pound. as everything we get from San Francisco costs 10 cents per pound frcicht. it cannot be expected that wo can get groceries as cheaply . here as in Los Angeles, llowever, with tho j exceptional iruit, rum a constant up:!v nsu, nra-iy vr tftitig "atabte that cun M had i' I.u?

Ti.o many kind, complimentary, even flattering notices the Weekly has re ceived in other papers all over tho country, ate fully appreciated by us, and we shall en deavor in the future not to fall back from the position already attained, but, if industry and perseverance will accomplish more, on the same line, to excel our past performance with tho Weekly. As to its bantling, the Daily, which is one month old to-morrow, wo can make no rash promises, but repeat our statement, made on its first appearance, that, if by a reasonable support, by advertising and subscriptions, the publie shall show that it meets their wants, and is useful to the community, it will con tinue to live and grow strong and larger, un til it arrives at tho sire of its parent. Horn in cold December, without local nour ishment sufficient to sustain life, with its wet nurse tho telegraph for three weeki troub led with nn intermittent sickness, which bid fair to become chronic, the chances seemed to be against it surviving, but to-day it is ablo to stand, with the assistance of friendly bands, and if its present support is continued, will be able to worry through the winter, nnd, wo trnst, tako hold of life with renewed vigor in tho spring. Condition or Otm Public Schools. We have received from Gov A. P. K. Safford, Territorial Superintendent of Public Schools, copies of the reports of tho different County Superintendents of Schools, from which we condensa these items : During tho year 1873, public schools have been taught in Prescott, Tucson, Florence, Sanford, Phoenix, Yuma and Ehrenherg. The wholo number attending school was: In Pima county, 110; in Maricopa, 01 ; in Yuma, 55 ; In Yavapai, 53'; total, 293. Tho amounts expended on school bouses, fixtures and apparatus were: In Tucson, Floreiice and Sanford, $503,38 ; In Phoenix, 81504.40; in Yuma and Khrenbcrg, 3035.08; in Prescott, $2,100 ; total, $5,353.40. Thero wero employed, during tho year, five male and six female teachers, at an ar crago of 100 por month, which amounts, ad ded to tho above, with other oxpouscs, makes a grand total of disborsmenta In the year, for the causo ol education in Arizona, ot 10,- 100.18; leaving on hand to begm tho year with 32,891.09. The Denver Tribune- in a cheery, pleasant style, notices tho completion of our telegraph, mid the appearance of the Daily Minek, gives us good wishes, and says : Thero are but three papers in Arizona. By far the best and tho most cuterprising is tho Prescott Minkr. On behalf of Colorado generally, and tho Tribune particularly, wo send to Arizona our sincerest congratulations on its leap into tho ight, anil its emancipation from Ulu togyism. A portion of the Render family charged with a series of murder In Kansas eome months ago were reoontly arrested. Two of the family are supposed to be in North Caroli na, and olliccrs ara on their trail. - WEEKLY ARIZONA MINER: Schuyler's Scout. A letter from Lieut W. S. Schuyler, dated Camp McDowell, Dec. 20th, gives some ad ditional particulars in regard to his recent scout. He left Camp Verde Dec. 1st. Tho next day two of his Indian guides deserted. On tuo -mi mst. ho Mirptwed a ranchena anil killed fifteen Indian, belonging to N'atole's band. Owing to ,,.ovv, fiom one to two feet ,. , ,, , ..... utip, in tho lurret and M.itizal mount.uiiN travel wa tery fitiguing to the mm. To get at one rancheria, the men were dismounted, and leaving a guard with the animal, march ed twenty-three miles, hoping to surprise the redskins, but the Indians aw them and lied to the mountains. In order to deceive them, Lieut. S. divided his command conceding part in the rocks and sending the pack ani mals on past the Indian village. The night was cold, aud no fire was built, lest the lu dions should see it, and the men had to keep walking in a circle all night, to keep from freezing. Tho Indians did not discover the ruse, and some of them returned to the rancheria, to meet their fate in the morning. They found snow on the mountains, south of the cast fork of tho Verde, two feet deep. One Indian camp wa attacked in a snow storm, and owing to the blinding snow, pre vented accurate shooting, and several Indians got away. The command reached Camp McDowell after a twenty-five days scout, having recon structed 27 Indian warriors, destroying several of their camps and a largo amount of provision they had stored up for winter. The business of reducing Apaches to sub jection involves some of the most arduom, ex hausting labor to bo performed by troop, but such scouts as these aro doubly bonellml- those Indians that arc killed are peaceable arc killed are peaceable forever, and tho destruction of their stores in midwinter, will force those who escape to re turn to tho reservations to get food, and when once again with plenty of food nnd in safe quarters, they will not be likely to take to tho mountains a second time.
