To oheor you on your way.
Thorn's many a weary toll to moot;

And iiianv a sl;l, to leave tho breast,
Where heart are pressetl with care;
There's many an error Iu tho world,
And main-a fruit that' hour,
And many a crooked path to take,
And many an ovll hour;
Thor'H many a charge unjustly made
To liriutf forth bitter wov,
And many an innocent to pav
Tho debt that guilt wtlll owes;
There' also many a drop ot Joy,
And many a thought that calm.
And many a noft'nliig word tontioak,
Anil many a healing balm ;
There's many a glad rejHmtant (ear,
And mauy'a tender heart,
And many a llng'rlng, quiet lovo,
To play a holy part.
Then pick for beauties as you go,
Keen joys that you may llntl;
GtKxl bye, and may you sometimes think
Of those you leave bohind.
THE KALTZ HECl.'PTIO.V.
Tho citizens of I'rescott, to show their ad
miration and appreciation of Gun. Kautz's
course as military commander of this de
partment during the hist two years, con
ceived the very sensible and appropriate
idea of extending to him and his accomplish
ed lady, together with the otlicers and their
ladies, of Fort Whipple, a complimentary
party. Accordingly a number of the prom
inent citizens came together, made the ne
cessary arrangements, and Thursday evening
of this week, at the new school house, was
the tune and place selected for the occasion,
which proved unite a success. At eight
o'clock the school house was illuminated in
every apartment, ami by nine o'clock tho
hall was thronged with bright and glitter
ing uniform and rich ami costly (Tresses.
Entering the hall we found everything
appropriately arranged the walls were de
corated with green arches, and tho appro
priate motto, in large letters, pendant in
one of them
'WE WELCOME YOU."
The stage was artistically arranged with
tlags, shields, etc., and the whole entire pro
gramme had now been given into the charge
of those appointed for the occasion. The
committee of reception to receive the guests
of the evening were Mr. and Mrs. H. II.
lhirmistcr, Mr. and .Mrs. W. C. Ifcuhford Mr.
W. C. Foster and Mrs. Mary Maxcy.
The Fort Whipple Hand played a beauti
ful march. Gen. Kautz and ladv and the
oiliccrs and ladies of Whipple, together with
a large number of citizens of town, entered
tho hall and wore welcomed by the commit
tee of reception bv shaking of hands, hearty
j eongnitulatious, etc., when dancing com
menced. A tine lunch, prepared by the
ladies of the village, was spread in an ad
joining room, to which, at a late hour, the
guests did ample justice. After lunch had
been partaken of. to the entire satisfaction
of all, Gen. August V. Ivautz, the hero of
the evening, thanked hi friends in au ap
propriate manner for the kindnesses bestow
ed upon him and the otlicers under him, to
gether with their ladies.
After the General concluded his remarks
all proceeded to the hall once more and the
programme of tho evening w;ts carried out
to the letter.
Among o many exquisite costumes it was
next to impossible toobtain full descriptions,
and for such shortcomings as mav bo found
i in such as we attempt to describe, the fair
belles must blame onlv their own dazzling
Mrs. Gen. Kautz was superbly attired in
an elegant black silk, with donri-traincd
point lace bortha and tunic, Her costume
was rich, and one of the most exwnsive.
This lady has so wonderfully preserved the
freshness of her beauty, that it is ditlicult
to realize that she is a mother of several in
.Mrs. Smith wore a white satin, en (rain.
which wa exceedingly beautiful. The
dress was trimmed with point lace ami fes
tooned with roses. Slippers of white satin.
Mrs. Col. Martin Mas handsomely attired
in a snow white silk and tulc, short sleeves,
and appropriately trimmed. Hair powder
ed; slippers of white satin. Wore u beau
tiful necklace and diamond ear-rings, nnd
other jewelry equally costly. Mis. Ms easy
grace and charming manners were the center
of attraction during the evening, and she
was pronounced the belle, even by the ladies.
Miss AVilkins, a bcatiful blonde, and
daughter of Col. .1. 1). Wilkins, U. S. A.,
was elegantly attired in lavender nnd black
with jcwelry'of jet, and was a general favor
ite and sought after by the gallant beaux.
.Mrs. Maj. Hrayton wore a black silk, deco
rated white and pink roses, short sleeves
and made a very prctfy appearance, and the
same can be appropriately said of Mrs. Maj.
Wilhelm, who was dressed similar to Mrs.
Urayton. Roth had their hair dressed styl
ish and decorrted with flowers.
Mrs. Lynch wore a heavy black silk vel
vet dress trimmed with rich black lace; jew
elry to correspond, and, as usual, looked
Mrs. Thomas was elegantly dressed iu a
blue silk trimmed with point lace; hair pow
dered; jewelry to correspond. Mrs. T. is
pleasing iu manners, an excellent dancer
and a favorito with all,
.Mrs. Col. Riddle wore a blue silk trimmed
with black chantilly lace, which wa admit,
cd for its being plain and very rich. She is
all life, is fond of enjoying herself nnd bus
a peculiar way of making all around her
Mrs. Captain Eagan wore a rich cW blue
silk decked with white flowers; jewelry of
diamonds, hair artistically arranged, slippers
of white satin and five button kid gloves.
Miss Emma Titus wore an elegant cos
tume black silk trimmed with blue satin;
hair powdered and dressed in latest style.
Her refined air and ready conversation ren
dered her quite a favorite, evca between
Miss Norma Abiatti wore pink, trim
med with white tulle and looked quite
Mrs. Houghton, in blue silk, looked, as
upon all former occasions, just what she is,
a genuine lady.
The above, wo believe, constitutes the
whole number of ladies present from Port
Whipple. "Wo would gladly give a descrip
tion of the coi-tumcs worn by the ladies of
I'rescott who graced the hall, on this occa
sion, with their presence, if we could remem
ber them. It was our intention to note
down the different costumes of all, but ow
ing to our being indisposed and unable to
remain but a short time, tho task was given
up. We first took tho notes of tho elegant
dresses of the fair ones from "Whipple, and
hud commenced at home, but after getting
the ladies' costumes who constituted the
committee of reception, we left. "Wo arc
certain, however, that each and every lady
present, of whom we publish a list of nmes,
worn attired in full evening dress, and but
little dillonco could be distinguished be
tweeu them ami the lollowing which wq.
wore lucky ouough to bo able to uotc down,
giving our readers an idea of what ele
guce was displayed in tho toilet of the la
dios of J'rcacott.
Mrs. It. II. Ihirmistcr was attired in hand
some winu colored velvet, trimmed with
white tulle; point luce colar, diamonds in
her hair, white kids and white satin slippers,
and bracelets of solid gold. Her whole at
tire was wonderfully becoming, and could
hardly have been more gracefully arranged.
She has a modest, unassuming manuer and
much respected by the hulius, guests of tho
evening and the entire community.
Mrs. W. C. llashford wore a stool gray
silk, small check, point lace trimmings, dia
monds in her hair, satin slippers, kid gloves
and costume declared to be the richest in
the room. Her modest demeanor, pretty
fnec and bright cyos made her a favorito of
Mrs. Mary Jloxoy, M'ho has been with us
but a short time, but during which has made
a host of friends, was handsomely attired in
blue satin nnd white tulle, decorated with
tm roses, and all declared she was the most
lively person present.
Following are the names of the ladies
present, of whom wo did not got their cos

It is generally conceded by the brightest
intellects of the entire civilized worhl that
silver must be universally adopted as a stand
ard of value. There is not nor can there be
produced enough gold to answer the pur
pose. Hardly one of the nations of the
earth could to-day discharge their obliga
tions if required to pay in gold. Even
Prussia, with all the immense indemnity
jwiid her in gold by France, has produced
wide spread commercial distress and caused
a fearful depression in all branches of indus
try by the attempt to demonitize silver; and
it'is more than probable that, with all the
gold in hand, she will be forced to rescind
the recent law making gold the only stand
ard of value.
It has been suggested, and the programme
will undoubtcdlybc eventually carried out,
to call a convention of all the civilized na
tions, and to adopt a uniform rate at which
gold and silver shall be received. Let the
two metals be adopted as the standard of
values; let tho relative values be ?1 per oz.
for silver and $20 per oz. for gold, aud let
this be tho established value the world over,
we shall never again see these panics in
riimnciul matters which periodically occur,
or these wide spread depressions in business
which wo have witnessed the past three
years in our own country, and which is now
convulsing the business centers of Europe.
Why the United States, who arc large
producer-; of silver, should hesitate to adopt
silver us a standard of value is a mystery.
.MASSACIll'SETTS SILVEU MINES.
Some months since wc published an ac
count of the discovery of a silver mine near
Newburyport, Mass. ".V company organized
in Uoston to work it has iust declared a div
idend of one ner cent, for the month of
April. The ore pays ?40 per ton, and the
vein is reported to bo four feet wide.
The Springfield Hepubliean publishes an
account of a recent discovery, near Rrant
fonl, Mass., 33 miles we-t of Springfield.
The discovery was made through the direc
tion of a clairvoyant named Frost, and the
vein found exactly as described. At a depth
of sixty feet the vein gives an average assay
of .te.OOO per ton.
Some of the richest mines in Mexico are
situated in the district of Hatopilas. State of
Chihuahua. The date of the lirst discovery
(La Nevada) is unkuown.
The principal minos that have given bo
nanzas are the Nevada, Pastrana, Dolores,
Cnta Arbitrios, Vallinas, ltonesvallcs, Ks
eritorcs, Marlines, Cansio, Carmen and San
Antonio. The lirst of theso was in bouanza
eighteen years between 1730 and 17G0, the
second fourteen years in the beginning of
this century. The vein of Pastrana is con
sidered best of all. as much for its richness
as for its size, reaching in parts eight yards
in width. Then follows San Antonio for the
same reasons. Resides the mines named
there are a multitude of viens to tho north,
east and west with which uonc in Mexico
can compete for richness. The metal is di
vided in four classes tho first, massive sil
ver, which flattens under the hammer with
out breaking; the second resembles nails or
wires closely twisted together, and yields
regularly one-half or even two -thirds the
weight of the stouo; tho third is a metal
with tho nail less compact, and the fourth
is the poorest, with but few traces visible.
The first class yields from 40 to 48 marcos
(eight ounces each i to the aroba (23 lbs.l,
being !M per cent pure silver. No other
mineral district iu Hie world will produce
thu same result. The Pastrana, San Antonio
ami Carmen for a long period during their
bonanza yielded 40000 ounces each per
week. A pillar in tho second named was
valued at 110,000, which when tumbled
produced inure than that amount.
Some idea may be formed of the vastucss
of production when the fact is stated that
the Pastrana yielded its owner iu eighteen
years tho enormous sum of forty million
The mine Cannon, gave to Marquis do
llustameute twenty million dollars in a few
years. San Antonio gave to Don Christobal
Perez, its owner, a fortune of ten millions
or more, and so on of all tho other mines
named n ton of lirst-class ore yielded from
fifteen to thirty thousand dollars per ton, se
cond class ore from two to fifteen thousand
A recent discovery is the Todos Santos
mine, opened February, 1870, which has
proved ono of the richest in the district.
On the first of May following, a mass of
pure silver was taken from it weighing 301
pounds. From this a piece weighing 71
nounds wus broutrht to this city and was on
exhibition at Tiffany's. A letter received
within a few days announces the fact that it
is in bonanza. One day in February 37
arobas (023 lbs.) of pure silver and three
tons of second class were taken from the
vein. This mine is close to the Pastrana.
Tho Ratopilas Mining Company, better
known as the San Miguel or Wells it Fargo,
mines iro owned nnd havo been worked for
thirteen years by five gentlemen connected
with express companies of this city. They
have run a tunnel through eighteen veins
about fifteen hundred feet, among them be
ing tho Carmen, San Antonia and Dolores.
It is the magnificent estate formerly of
the Marquis Ikistamentc, once President of
Mexico, that these gentlemen own in connec
tion with their miiung oporntions. Tho ha
cienda has accommodations for many hun
dreds of operatives, for tho superintendent
and other otlicers, and tho numerous ani
mals employed. The portion enclosed is
surrounded by a stone wall capable of re.
sisting attack of any except an army with
heavy siege mutoriai. Within this, besides"
other stores, 'the comauy keeps n heavy de-
osito of silver always in reserve. Payisff
for everything on the spot in the coined
metal of the country, they briug away for
division among the proprietors only the ex
cess over the reserve we have mentioned anel..
the cost of production. Yet the transpor
tation of this excess nnd of their supplies
and operatives is sufficient to justify tho '.
maintenance, with indifference to the patron
age of the public at large, of their line of
stage coaches which ply between Ratopilas"
ami the point in Texas where they connect'
with tho railway system of tho United
Tho product of silver in Mexico from. 17D0 -to
1830 was 708,000,000.
PEKMANENCK OF SII.VElt 3ITXES.
Ono great fact in the history of silver
mining cannot bo controvorted. "Whercever
in any part of the world silver mines have
been worked, they are worked now unless
arrested for some explainable cause. Tho
mines of the Andes have been worked for
three centuries. Those of old Spain from
the middlo ages, nnd arc in working, condi
tion now. In Hungary the same mines t
worked by tho Romans before the birth of.
Christ still yield their steady increase. Those
of Freiberg in Saxony, worked from the
eleventh century, know no diminution. In
Bohemia, Tyrol, Norway and Sweden, in
the Ural and Atlas Mountains, nnd wherc
ever else discoveries of silver have been
made, wc believe, without exception, the
mines continue to be worked and are gener-"
ally more productive now than at any time
in their past history. Engineering and
