T., Mar 23. To t'ie Elilfr of the Arizona Miner: Wishing to give your readers a letter ot ; some interest, I have made arrangements wku stvenu inenas to lunnsn me all the cu.-rent items transpiring in their several lo calities. Tlie following extract from a private letter received from Camp McDowell, under date of the 24th inst., will, I think, prove Lighly satisfactory to your numerous patrons: "Lieut Parkhurst, and detachment, return ed to this post yesterday, from a ten day's scout. Lieut P. accompanied Lieut Schuy ler's expedition. The result may lie summed up as follows: On tbe 17th inst., in the vi cinity of Four Peaks, a rancheria was jumped ami 23 Indians were made forever peaceable, and seven squaws made prisoners. On the next da- rive more Indians were made good. Plenty of "sun" was seen north of Salt , river, ana in the direction of Superstition j ! mountain. It is the belief uf some that the nariV of "uuitconst runt ttil' Annrhpa arp still 1 lurking 111 tuese mountains, ine region scouted ahourds Tvitu water, etc. Al Seber, one of (Jen Crook's most trusted guides, made a narrow escape. An Indian was in the act of drawing his bow to shoot him, when he (Seber) tired, killing his antagonist instantly." The above is certainly cheering. All hon or to Crook and his brave officers and men. A was savs that "Gen Crook's scouts have killed so many Indians this spring, that the buzz?jrds are three weeks behind with the eyes." 'Nil Desperandum"' tells you that the farmers north of the Gila arc obliged to employ a night watchman for the safety oi their stock. We are obliged to employ two j ami tliree tor tue same purpose. We are having the whooping cough here merely for pastime. Weather hot enough to roast an egg. I gave the "old fellow" a trial yesterday, and he did it to perfection. Maniac. IRATABA. . Want of space prevented us, a few days ago, from doing more than barely announc ing the death of this Indian, on the third or 4th of this month, at his residence, near La Paz, on the Colorado river. Those who knew him well say that, at the time of his death, he was between 5.j and 00 years of age. From being captain of a band of Moha ves he rose to be the principal chief of the tribe, and, as such, visited Washington and other Kastern cities, in all of which he en joyed himself hugely, since great favors were shown him, and psesents flowed in upon him thick and fast. Returning to his people, rigged out in the habi laments of a Major Genera of the Army, he looked, every inch, a general of some sort, and was admired by his people until, in an evil hour, he attempt ed to tell them of the wondrous white peo ple; their great numbers; the big rancherias (towns), and other things they bad in Cali fornia and the East, all of which they, at first, took with a great deal of allowance and, soon after, rejected entirely, as too fab ulous for t-lief ! From that day on, I rat aba lost standing rii his tribe and was looked upon as the biggest liar on the Colorado. Some Indians went so far as to accuse bim of having lost his reason. But, he followed the new bent of his imagination, provided him self with an adobe house and lived in irAite style until the day of his death, when his j remains, his household cllects, c., were I burned to ashes, his horses slaughtered and j his tribe t'uoxn into a period ol deep grief, ' during which time they abstained from food j of any kind and ou!d iu.t as much as touch salt. They even went so far as to bum their I old village. j Irataba was crencra'ly supposed to be a j good Indian. His goodness broke out on him J ten or twelve years ano, alter his trilie had ! experienced sJme reverses of a ble ture while endcavorin- to kill sevel ed'mg na i ture, while endeavoring to kill several Amer Rans a"" ldK a ln l:le l Cachise used to take a horse, bince. then, until his death, Irataba's voice was alwavs icans and take a fort f,,r peace, and, now that he has gone where aiI wj iI1(i;;u)S ,r0. we ak the next chief. , Vill be Mr Sicehoot, to be a J'00'1 ni!U' to live so that when the Great Spirit shall have served its attachment upon llim. t!je Miner will have cause to give him a good, honest obituarv. . Wells, Fargo & Co., or some other cx- j press coinyany should lose no time in extend ing tlieir business to Wickenburg, Prescott and other towns in Arizona, citizens of which ! are forever wishing for sonic sure, safe wav i by which they could ship bullion to San Uernaruino, ban Diego, 1,0s Angeles and San rancisco, alilorma. 1 here cannot now be lt,iS tll:ln S-'-V-KX) i bullion, here, awaiting shipment. The Albuquerque (N. M.) Review, of May 10th, says that on that day a special agent of the postoffice department had swooped down upon Major Werner, the postmaster at that place, and, for some unknown cause, placed him under arrest. The Major gave bonds and was released, but the office was rentoved to another place to a wait an arrange ment of the matter. Considerable apprehension is felt in the neighlxtrhood of Milquatay. near the Mexi can line, on account of the threatening atti tude of the Indians on the other side of the Hue. A man recently arrived at Hill's sta tion, having been followed by the Indians for a long distance and it is thought would have been killed had he not succeeded in reaching the statiou wheu he did. Our gifted friend, District Attorney Mc Cafiry, had a slight unpleasantness with his mules and a rattle-snake while fa route from Phirnix to this place. A rattle, near the road, scared the team, which ran away, tak ing Mac into a country with which he was not conversant; a rocky country at that, out of which he finally found his way to New River. The Mexican Congress has voted $"0,000 for proper representation in the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition. This act exceeds the liberality of our own government to the ex tent of just $$70,000, so far as beard from. The Indians will cost 56,000,000 this year. 1'HESCOTT.
