WEEKLY ARIZONA MUSTER: PRESCOTT, FEBRUARY 5, 1875.
Tun Condition of tiie Roads. The reader
wLo has not traveled the roads leadiu out of
Prcscott, during or since the storm of last week,
may form an Idea of their etmdhion from onr
experience in coining from Skull Valley, on the
buckboard, on Thursday and Friday, which of
course included Thursday night.
Iu the first place, the ground was thoroughly
saturated with rain, then came-a fall of soft, wet,
slushy enow, and ou top of that, a layer of dry
snow, the latter thawed a little on top during
the day, and froze at night, forming a crust; this
the horses had to break with tbeir feet, not only,
but were obliged to drag tho wheels through it
on cither side, besides the mud and slush beneath,
which were enough of themselves to make trav
eling very difficult. The fact that the night was
bitter cold aud froze the ton of the snow to a
glare of Ice, did not itftcrfcrc with the mud and
snow beneath, and to say that it was a miserable
trip is but a feeble attempt to convey an idea of
bow much one suffers, and how hard the labor of
teams, aud drivers whose business it is to face
the storms and bad roads, no matter how severe.
For seven hours while on the way in, from .Mint
Valley, it was impossible to make a mile an
Lour with four jrood horses and two as "ood dri
vers as can be found in the country, for, where
Bill Reid and Jim Carroll fall to make time, it is
safe to say there is something the matter. Right
Jierc, while wc think of It, on behalf of oursclf,
who was the only passenger, and the two drivers,
wc desire to return thanks to Mr. Dcaring, of
Mint Valley, for relreshing us with a cup of
strong, hot coffee, that cold night; and to Mr.
Blair, of Burnt Ranch, who played towards us
the part of a monk of San Bernard to the Alpine
traveler, aud placed us before a blazing fire while
our tired and hungry team renewed their
strength at his fodder stack and corn-crib.
Mcsic at Fout Wmrji.E. The second of the
scries of soirees musicales instituted by Lieut.
Wilhelm was given at Fort Whipple on Wednes
day evening last. The audienec was larger and
tho civilian elemeut better represented than on
the preceding occasion. The programme was
well selected and was equally well rendered. Of
the Instrumentalists Mrs. A. V. Kautz, as a pi.ui
istc, and A. E. Wicniawski, as a violinist, are
especially worthy of praise. The over delightful
"Shubert Serenade" and the overture of " Poet
and Peasant" were most exquibitcly rendered by
them. The concerted pieces of the Eighth In
fantry Baud were, of course, thoroughly well
executed. The vocal music was superb. The
duet from Troratorc was hariuonloii&ty given
by Mrs. Kautz and Mr. Garrett, nnd-the ''Bells
go Ringing for Sarah" merrily sung by Miss
Kitty Hitchcock both of which were enthusias
tically applauded formed the vocal portion of
the first pait. In the second part, the beautiful
"Evening Song to the Virgin" was admirably
given by Mrs. E. D. Thomas and Miss Carrie
Wilkins. The quaint and pathetic "Old Black h
Joe," with chorus (congregational in which
Capt. Nickerson and Lieut. Ross distinguished
themselves), sung by Mr.' Garrett, was encored,
and in response to the call that versatile gentle
man gave " Finncgan's Wake." The other song
was Gounod's "Cautl Riili Dormi," which was
6wcet!y and artistically rendered by Mrs. Kautz.
The whole arrangements were excellent, aud the
programme was executed with ability by all the
ladies and gentlemen who contributed to tho
enjoyment of a pleasant evening. Wc njfaiu con
gratulatc Lieut. Wilhelm on the success of tho
concerts, and thank him ou behalf of the town
folk who were fortunate enough to be present.
Tun "Ci.HTEit Saw-Milu" On Sunday last,
In company with the proprietor, Lieut. W. J.
Jtoss; his agent, H. Ott (Charley), and D. W.
Higgius, we proceeded to visit this new mill, re
cciillj erected and put in active opcratiou by its
ontrrprUing proprietor. The mill is situaten on
the Hassajampn, about eight miles south of Prcs
cott, some two and a half miles distant fr- rn the
old Quartz Mountain saw-mill, and iu the center
of one the finest pine forests in this section of tho
country. On our arrival through the courtesy
of the engineer, Mr. Harrington, and chief s.iw
yer, Mr. Wylley wc had the opportunity of wit
nessing the working of their model circular,
which proved itself a "clipper" iu truth ; after a
short run of about one hoar 800 feet of the best
sawed lumber we ever remember having seen was
exposed to view. Everything seemed to work to
a charm, aud we were assured, as was self-evident,
that thecuttn.j: ipacity of the mill is from seven
to eight thou.'ud feet per day. Mr. Ross has
quite a force of men employed at the mill aud the
best of accommodations arc furnished them. Wo
sincerely wish the operations of the uew mill may
meet with the success its enterprising proprietor
richly merits, and of which wc have no doubt,
when wc take into consideration the many advan
tages and bear in mind the fact of our esteemed
fricud Mr. Ott, who is so well known as an tucr
getic and thorough business man, being manager
of the concern.
Heaiii) Fiiom. J. M. Roberts, oT Donahue,
Cal., with whom we occupied a place at Bigelow's
f tovc very pleasantly, but who went prospecting
with Theo. Boggs just before the late storm, 6ends
us by tbc hand of Ed. G. Peck some very
rich specimens of copper ore, which, with
out pretending to be an expert, we estimate at
ninety per cent copper, at least, besides an appear
ance of silver. Mr. Boggs also sends us by
the same gentleman some very rich copper ore
as well as some bearing silver aud gold. These
.specimens arc from near Boggs' ranch, some
where in the neighborhood of. the Agua Fria. We
were assured by Mr. Boggs w!,i-n he was here
that these ores arc very abundant, aud with rail
road transportation there cau be no doubt that
Yavapai comity will add copper mining to her
other valuable industries, and that those who
secure these rich deposits now while they arc
vacant and unclaimed will cventally find them
selves ou the highway to fortune.
Queer Fimi. Cal. and Jesse Jackson have
some specimens of an aquatic animal tho like of
which wc havo never seen nor heard of before.
They iu shape resemble some of the various spc
plcs of lizzards that arc found all over the coast,
but aro heavier la proportion to their length.
They have four legs and feet and a long tail, like
the water-dogs ot the western Atlantic rivers, but
arc provided with gills like p fish, and evidently
derive the requisite, supply of oxygen to sustain
life from the water that passes those organs.
Around these gills Is ft soft, dark-colored down rc
edmbllng feathers. The largest one Is several
Inches in length, and was caught with a hook in
theSaata Maria, near the ranch of Sol, Jackson.
They arc prcscrrcd iu alcohol, and may be seen at
the saloon pi Japkspn & Tompilus.
Fredericks1 mill will start, up in a few days ; the
engine is all in place, and now they have only to
steam up aud ascertain her speed, after which
there is one pulley to make, the sijo of which de
pends on the velocity of the engine, when away
she goes, and wo may expect to bear of good re
sults, in a short time.
The Fredericks' miue has heretofore given a
good account of itself with Inferior machinery,

corresponding with the, improved, character of

Berdc Davis were the voung ladies who officiated
at the Lottery wheels, assisted bv Mr. John Ma
rion aud Mr. J. Rodenbcrg who were chosen as
a committee by the ticket holders. Everything
seemed to be conducted iu a fair and honorable
manner and gave universal satisfaction to all
parties interested. As space will not admit our
publishing a complete list iu this issue, wc in tbs
meantime may mention the names of Mr?. E. W,
Wells, Mr, Parker, Mr. Giles, Mr. Pratt, Mr. Pra
ter, Mrs. Hutchinson, Mr. L. A. Stevens, Mr.
Fred Henry, Mr. Brochman. Mr. Spauldins, Mr.
Petiwell, Mr. Noyes, Miss Jcnuie Andrew, and
Miss Sadie Mansfield a3 winners of some of the
principal prizes, as far as heard from yet, and
there still remain on hand prizes for the follow
ing numbers, viz: 724, 3T0, S4, 350, 5C2.JJ.M, 130,
532, which can be obtained on presentation of
tald tickets to Messrs. Fisher fc Thorne.
Old Acquaintances. Merely as an example
of how the old Argonauts, failinjr to find the
golden flece in one country, separate, go iu diver
gent directions and after years of fruitless quest,
again come together in far off latitudes, wc men
tion that iu leaving San Francisco, in December,
for the far South, wc felt as If wc were going Into
a strange land where wc would be as little likely
to meet an acqdaiutancc, as if wc were bound to
the diamond mines of South Africa. On our arri
val iu Prcscott, however, our mind was soon dis
abused of this heresy. Nearly the first man we
met was Rudolph Pifferliug, whom we had
known ail over California, Oregou, Washlugion,
Idaho, Montana, Utah and Nevada. Then came
Dan Thorne, Hutchinson, Tim Glcason, John
Shawn und Win. Nash from Idaho, Jake Marks
from Elko, Nevada, and we can't now remember
how many more of the old timers. A week later
and bene came Joe James and wife, from Tehama,
California; so that, instead of going among
strangers, we felt ns if we had got home. Aud a
home we arc endeavoring to make it.
Veky Rich Specimens. Dan Thorne exhibited
to us a specimen of gold and silver bearing quartz
taken from a recent discovery somewhere to the
westward of Skull Valley, in the direction of the
Santa Maria. By the way, Hutchison aud Thome
have a very valuable cabinet of minerals at their
place of business on Montezuma street, to tblcb
we are indebted for much of the limited knowl
edge of the mineral resources ef the county wc
possess. Any one, wc think, with any knowledge
of the value of mineral bearing rock, must con
clude, after examining this collection and learning
the localities from which the several samples an
taken, that this country only awaits cheap trans
portation and the introduction of capital to be
come one of the best mining counfrics on earth.
Tun Late Stoum. From the testimony of
many old settlers, wc learn that this is the wet
test and snowicrt winter ever known to Ameri
cans in Arizona, and the late storm which beg-an
a week ago but Monday was altogether the most
severe of this winter. It snowed almost inces
santly from Monday morning until Wednesday
night, but a part of the time it melted about a:
fast as it fell and left the ground covered to
depth of twcnt3--two Inches when the storn

MINING IN YAVAPAI COYSTF.
ITS E.YTEXT, VTA TEH FACILITIES, AXD OTH
In attempting to get information concern
ing mining affairs in the vicinity of Prcscott,
we have experienced some difficulty owing
to the late stonn, and items nre not plenty,
The late snow storm has almost blockaded
the roads and trails, and but few of the hon
est miners have been iu town for two weeks
On the heads of Big Bug, Turkey Creek,
Lynx Creek, and the Hassayampa the snow
is over four feet deep, and, though the nights
are very cold, the warm February sun is
melting it rapidly and all the mountain
streams are running full, and consequently
the placer miners are in high glee, and doing
Smith & Marcutt, at the old Excelsior
claims, on Lower Lynx Creek, are piping
nnd sustaining the reputation of the claim,
as twenty dollar diggings. All the way up
the Creek, parties who have been throwing
up dirt during the Fall, and drifting out the
"pay grit," are now washing with sluices,
and making money.
On the Ilassayampa, Gorton & Co., who
are working below the mouth of Groom's
Creek, have struck some rich spots, and
were in town Monday, for provision., with
considerable dust, and well pleased with
On the Big Bug, parties are working un
der the old Osborn ditch and at the Mexi
can claims below, making good wages.
Several parties who have not been en
gaged in placer mines since 18G8 have gone
out during the past week, to work on spots
they had staked outfor six years past. There
is so much snow in the mountains, that wa
ter, for the next four months, is assured,
and doubtless more placer gold will bo taken
out this Spring than lor five years past.
In quartz mining, the heavy suows are, at
present, an obstruction, though sure to be
bcncfiei-il in the end. From the Crook mine
we learn, through different sources, that the
pay holds out as well as ever. In view of
the certainty of. water in the Eist Fork of
the Ilassayampa, near the mine, the claim
owners are preparing to crush their ore by
water-power. Fuller & Co. (four in the
Company) are putting up a 20-foot overshot
wheel. White, Philips & Cary have a
hurdy-gurdy nearly completed, and Moore &
Stone have another almost ready for work,
with which the' propose to do custom work.
Those who have been running arrastras in
the mountains, by horse-puwer, are very
generally forced to suspend operations tem
porarily, and send their animals down to the
ranches for food, as the grass is all covered
up. Mr. E. Fender, one of the best mill
wrights in this county, is putting up the
wheels at the Crook mine, above mentioned,
and all parties who have water-power adja
cent to their mines, should follow the exam-
ile of the Crook boys, and get a power that
requires no feeding, and will work day and
light without rest.
From all sides we hear only good reports
concerning the mines and hopes founded on
a good basis of a prosperous season ahead.
Very little show is made here of the bullion
and placer dust produced in this county, but
the amount is not inconsiderable. Mr. A.
Filers, whom many of the readers of the
Miner will remember as the Mining Com
missioner who was here three or four j'ears
ago, lately wrote to Col. II. A. Bigelow, to
send him a statement of the bullion product
of Yavapai count during the year 1874, and
tbe Col. has interviewed the merchants and
saloon keepers of Prcscott, and finds that
the amount of bullion and placer dust ship
ped to San Francisco during tiie past year,
was 12G,G00: The product of Smith's
mill, which has been running steadily the
whole year, with the placer gold from Wea-
cr, Antelope and other mining sections
south of Prcscot, which passes through tho
lands of the Wickenburg merchants, raises
the total prodHct of our mines in 1874, to
227,000 as nearly as can be ascertained,
and this amount is almost entirely in gold.
There aro no works in the county for the
reduction of silver ores, and it is only during
the past year that miners have been safe in
working and keeping animals in the moun
tains. This year we expect to be able to
report a very marked progress in the devel
opment of mines in the county and the whole
erritory. An examination of the speci
mens of silver ores in Prcscott which have
been gathered from various mines in the vi
cinity, induces us to believe that in the near
future this county will be a good field for
heavy mining operators.
