Indian and Military Affairs. The aspect of Indian affairs is gloomy for whites. Hccent comers from Vertlo reserva tion say that over 1,000 Indian have left there, and are now prowling through the . mountain. A great many of them are around thu ranches on tho Lower .gua Fria, and some have been teen, or rather, their (Ires, in tho vicinity of Granite Mountain. Citizen 'nrc alarmed, and well they may be, believing as they do, that the deserters from the reser vation are pretty well supplied with new gov ernment guns and amunition, procured wo scarcely know how, but, it is charged; from illicit traders, among whom arc numbered many of the late Indian soldier allies of Gen. Crook's troops. We are not so much alarmed a many of our readers, but must confess tliat tbcro Is cause Tor Tear. Tbe Indians who killed Townsend bare not, to our knowledge, been caught up with and punished. There is, however, reason tohope;that the scouting parties of white and Indian soldiers sent out by Gen. Crook will punsh the. murderous renegades. Tbe General, himself, has gone to the Verde and all may rest assured that ho is doing his best to check this new move of tho faithless Apaches. In him and his little army we have unbounded faith, and shall soon look for tbe springing of more ininci under Apacho stamp ing grounds. Agent Williams, of tho Verde, Is doing his very best to control the savages ; this he has been doing all tho time, but sickness, etc., have given the wretches excuses for skedad dling "back to their old haunts. Not long since, when an attempt was made to arrest Del-Che, the Apaches on tho reserve were ready and eager to murder every White man citizen and soldier on said reserve, so Lieutenant Schnylcr, having but a very small force, was compelled, much against bis will, to desist from arresting the reprobate. The Tucson Citizen, of September 27, gives the' following news from tho White Moun tain and San Carlos reservations : "We learn froin A. MeKey, who arrived from the San Carlos on Tuesday, that on the 17th mat Oapt Pedro reported to Lieut Rice that a notorious Apache named Eekoolgo, who brutally, murdered Mr Redman sutler at Camp Apache, over two years ago, was at an Indian camp near the agency. Upon re ceiving this information' Lldut Rice, with Geo. H. Stevens, acting agent, Marcial Gal . legos, the interpreter, John M. Logan, laid hospital steward at Camp Apache, and pri vate Geo Kcssel started to arrest him. On arriving at tho camp the Indian was found lying down and was requested to get up and go with' the Lieutenant to the agency. On rising he drew his knife and stabbed Logan in several places, from the effects of which ho died in about three hours, and slightly .wounded Resael. At this juncture or affairs Stevens and Gallegos fired upon the savage, killing him instantly. Tbe Apaches say that this Indian has murdered to their knowledge nine men, four white men and five Apaches and amoug the latter was bis own brother! Tbey seem muJh pleased that he has been killed. He could have been killed long ago, but according to Colycr ho was entitled to special favor for his success and daring in killing white men, and ho has gone unpun ished to this" time, trailing his pathway in blood and using his influence to debauch the irieudly disposed. Thanks to Gen Crook a new order of management lias been inaugu rated and the Apaches are being taught that they are responsible beings, and that murder and rubbery are crimes for which punishment will follow. 0. A. Shibbell, who returned on Monday with his freight train from Camp Apache, in forms us that Lieut Eckerson is en routo to Fort Yuma with Captain Chiqulto and six other Apaches, whither they have been sent by Major Randall for disobeying the rules of the reservation by being absent without leave. It seems that Captain Chiquito has tho largest band of Apaches on the White Mountain reserve and it has frequently oc curred that many of bis Indians imvo ah. scnted themselves without the fact beinc r ported or any effort on Chiquito's part to prevent it. Members of this band stolo some horses from the Kan Pedro last spring and fcccnuj i rum ruerjio Yiejo, and also several inurucrs are believed to have been committed by the band. Major Randall has dotPnnln..,l to make an example by punishing some of uio ncau aen or the tribe, and we have no doubt that wearing a ball and chain at Fort Yuma -a few months will have the desired effect and teach these noble red men that In consideration of befog fed and protected by the United States they must show a little good faith on their part. At any rate Major lfan.l. II as .... iw.uu.ii ana Agent itobcrts are-doinc their A.... 111 ! II .... .aiiuiuiiyj good Indians av being pro- i.iu ana won cared Tor and the bad ones nrc being instructed that for their eviJ deeds they will be punished. There is not a tribe of Indian on tbe continent that cannot be subdued and controlled by this system but until General Crook came hero the premiums were paid to bad Indians and the well dis powd were neglected. Wo suppose that this vstem or management was adopted upon the me principle that tho Chinese give all their oatring. to tho Devil, in the belief that God M food and will not harm them, but that tho old devil 1, fu of wrath and cuwedness, and hence must be bough't off nt any price 1 "cm Mr Donald Rom to Mr W. V t French, or Prcscott, which letter Mr W. has very kindly permitted us to peruse, substan tiates the foregoing, and praises Major Ran dall for bis efforts to drivo devils out of the Indisn swine. Then, a fresh trail of stolen stock and In dian captors has recently been seen going in the direction of Cacblio's reservation, which is now evidence that all is not right there. In tliir. dilemma, Gen Crook ought to have moro troops, more power over Apaches on reservations, and moro means to carry out tbe serious work before him. Tho fact is patent, Apacho dogs will not down at our bidding. They will treat to-day ; ratten at public cribs and then follow the impulse or their devilish nattlrc by robbing and'murder- ing some or their benefactors. Wish It were in our power to secure and ship the last of tho red scoundrels out of tho Territory. - i i . From Washington. A Washington Ipt tcr, of September 11, gives us these items: Mr C. A. Luke, commissioner from this Territory to tbe recent Vienna show, had ar rived in Washington, on his way home. Col Montgomery, who is to relieve Gen Dana, as chief Quartermaster of this military department, was about to start for tho Ter .t,n ir ... ii i t lll'llj. 11U CAJICblVU III UK UViU 30IUO WWJC in November. Dr. McGruderx who was preparing to re lleve Dr Bailey, as medical director of the department, was preparing to start from St. Louis, Mo., lor headquarters or this depart ment. Dr McGruder is well thought of by officers and others, who know him. Dr II. Bendell, late superintendent of In disn Affairs for this Territory, had passed tho required examination, and been appoint ed consul at Elsinore, Denmark, for which port himself and wife were about to sail. Major Dallas, U. S. A., and Major Larrabee, formerly stationed here, were in Washington. The health of our defecate. R. C. McCor- mlck, was good, and be, tbe letter state?, was attending to business. Maricopa L'ountt. Our wccklr letters from Phoenix, the capital of this county, are every bit as good to tho place as a arasll weekly newspaper would be. Everybody reads thcrnj that Is. everybody who reads tho Miner, and-in this case everybody may oe interpreted to include about 10.000 oeo- plc; not that wo have that many subscribers. out mat mere are several thousand persons who read the Miner and arc too mean to pay for it. The last letter, which will be found on the first page of this sheet, hss. amon" other items, news to tho effect that the district court was about to conclude its labors for the session ; that the supervisors were resigning with a vengeance; that farmers had not got through threshing grain; that D. Curran. who lately ran awav with nthpr rwin'. - V ----- money, is a very bad man; that 40 men were making new road to Verde and Prescotti that stations were being established along it; tliat Uergo uing, convicted of murder in the second degree, is booked to penitentiary 10 years or bis life in tbe jail of Pima county; that Jos. Dawson had bis trial postponed and that some outside friend helped these two gents to get out or duranco vile; that tho new school house was almost completed, etc Mining Items In the way or mining news wo have, this week, but little that is new to communicate. Bill Smith's mill, near Wickenburg, is still at work, with grand suc cess, on Vulture ore. The arastras in Walnut Grove, Bradshaw and other districts are kept going night and day, crushing ore, which is yielding well in gold. The Tucson Citizen, or a recent date, notes the fact that many men are at work, on the Francisco river, taking out water for pla cer mining purposes, etc. A letter from Mr. Wm. Cory, of Cerbat, Mohave county, contains highly, encouraging news of mines and mining in this county. Considerable rich ore was being shipped to San Francisco. The Telegraph. Tho several parties at work building telegraph aro making good headway. From San Diego to Yuma, tho wire is going up at tho rate of three miles a day. The Prescott party arc now far beyond Wickenburg, and polls is strung along other sections of the route. A let ter from Wicken burg, or tbe 30th Inst., to Col. Bigelow or this place, is as follows : Lieut. J. F. Trout (tho indexable), with his telegraph builders put in an appearance at this place about 4 p. m. yesterday. First ground broken and polo planted in Wicken burg in front or tbe General office or tbe Ari- TAn, fiffarA f.Inn. .ml.ht -1 : I n of guns, etc. To-day the stars and stripes was raised over tbe polo and wine (Private Cuvee) flowed and a health was drank to tho Hon. R. 0. McCortnick, General Crook, Gen. Dana and all the gents connected with the undertaking. The lino was pushed ahead to day beyond Brill's ranch, distant four miles from here. The Wiikklkr Expedition. A Salt Lake dispatch of Sept. 19, says: Lieut. Wbreler has arrived from Camp Apache, Arizona. Tbe results of the expedi tion so far have been in tbe highest ilevrm satisfactory. Tbtf astronomical wrtion of the campaign has been more successful than was anticipated. Tbe topographical and ge ological results of tho survey in Eastern Ar izona are perfectly wonderful. A country - - - .... (5 ' ntvi and woods, far exceeding anv iortlnn nl fini. orado.

' v Railroads Immigrants-Excursionists. While many citizens and papers of Califor. nia are abusing the managers of tbe Central Pacific railroad, for alleged overcharging and for an itching to control the politics 0 the State, a proper regard for justice and manli ness should, we think, cause them to admit that the road has brought to their State many immigrants and thousands of excur sionists, besides it hns reduced taxes and in creased the amount of taxable property in thu counties through which it passes, so that it am) its managers have really done moro good than evil. No doubt, many corporations stand in great need of being reined in by the people, but furiuus driving is not tho best modo or mak ing them keep from drawing against the in terests or tho people. The great trans-conti-nental road has, also, accomplished great good Tor all other territory between Calilornia and lown, filling up Nebraska, Wyoming, Neva da, Utah arid btber geographical divisions with workers, sight seers, speculators, etc. The Kansas-Pacific is another instance or what a railroad has dono for our western country. Its managers have labored earnestly to induce immigrants to settle on and near it. Immigrants havo done so, and tho gain to them, tbe railroad and tho country can scarcely be. expressed In dollars.. . - New Mexico and Arizona are suffering Tor immigrants, such as a railroad would, bring them, and, in thi sad plight, wo cannot af ford to fight railroad corporations, but can, ought, must encourage such lonaJUU railroad men as are endeavoring to push rails in this direction. Col. Scott ought to be home from Europe by this time; and, as it is reported that his trip there was crowned with success, we hope and pray that he will, as speedily as possible select his route through New Mexico and Arizona and give us the benefit or a railroad. Tiir. ' Poon " Modocs. Since the recent announcement from Washington, that tho worst survivors of the Modoc man-killers arc to "pull hemp," as a punishment" for their bloody deeds, sickly setimcntalista at the East have been pulling and tugging at Presi dent Grant's coat-tails, with the view of pre vailing upon him to whitewash the blood or our murdered dead and let their slayers loose, to re-enact more horrid deeds. " Poor Mo docs," these cackling geese repeat, in and out or church. "Captain Jack is pining away," and mercy to him and his lieutenant mur derers would crown tbe President with an other laurel wreath ! Out upon such drivel ers, who were never yet known to have such soft feelings for white criminals. The Modoc prisoners stond convicted or heinouscrimcs ; they deserve punishment, and, now that they havo been adjudged to die, by hanging, it is but meet that they go out or this world iu that way. Captain Jack, who at latest report from Fort Klamath, was sleek and fat, ex- prested a preference fur a bullet, but hang- ing is too good for tho wretch, ami we, al though not in the least vindictive, favor mak ing an example of him and all other Modocs' who have earned death. Their croine: out of the world iri this way may have a good effect upon other bad Indians, if not upon tbe claw hammer whites who cluster around'tho rob bing ring. The Ovkhland Monthly roa OcroBEn. This number is especially attractive on ac count 01 its many heavy articles at least considered heavy by those who wish a maga zine to be made up entirely of light, and in many cases overdrawn readine matter. Bo among these heavy articles we may enume rate " lie Late Chief Justico Chase, by Hon. Justico Field; "Tho Enelish as a Unt- vernal Language;" "Aboriginal shell-money;" ana " Must, Uan, and Should Money bo Tax ed." Theso aro all very valuable papers, and throw much licht on tho subjects treated. The article on "Prison life in China," reveals a heart-rending condition of affairs in tbe Celestial Kingdom. In tho second paper on "Seeking the Golden Fleece." Dr. Stillman gives a very graphic description or the flood or mu, at Sacramento, Cal., a most trying period in tho early history or this coast. This issue certainly abounds in valuable in formation, interspersed with a number or stories and poems. The "Etc." is varied in subjects, the article on "A Few Scientific Personals" being particularly acceptable. A number of excellent reviews grace tbe Cur rent Ltteraturo department 5 and we notice that a Musical Department has been added, giving quite an extended article on vocal and instrumental music Issued in San Francisco. John II. Carmany & Co., Publishers, 403 Washington St., San Francisco, at 84 per an- Wo are under obligations to Mr. II. Bucks baum, of Mineral Park, Mohave county, fur a reprinted copy of the "Maryland Journal and the Baltimorn Advertiser," datod " Fri day, August 20, 1773." It is a three-column paper, and is only about half tho sire or the Miner, though much older. Tho paper is quite a curiosity, and instructive in showing tho great and rapid Improvement in print ing, and the facilities for circulating useful knowledge. One of the advertisers in this paper "or tho good old cotuuy days," offers a reward of ten pounds for an UUh servant man, who ran away from his matter. An other advertiser offers the same amount to any one who will aecuro iu jail until called for his negro servant Prince, Iu 1799 the paper was consolidated with the w Bultimuru Dally Advertiser," and called tho Haiti moro American and Dally Advertiser." which name it hu retained to tbe present day.

Wo rewrite as follows from tho Arizona (Yuma) Sentinel, of September 20th: Correspondence of the editor, Mr. 0, I Minor, dated Cerbat, September 20, Is full and interesting. Arriving t Camp Bealo Springs, ho met and complimented Captain Then. Byrne, commanding that post, Lieut. Hunt and other citizens. Visiting Cerbat, tho now county scat or Mohave county, he observed about 125 hous es and cabins. Some or the houes ho Inti mates, aro superior to tho overage house or his own tomi, Yuma. Population or the place between 350 and 400. Mercantile houses were doing a fair business fur the cap ital invested. The smaller towns of Stockton, Mineral Park and Chloride were also visited by our brother quill, who expresses himself pleased with their people and the wealth (mineral) surrounding them. Several arastras were running and paying. Coming to Prcscott, by Wcbjtcr A. White's stage, he round the road rough, on account or recent rains, but was well pleased on arriving here, and meeting his friends, Cant. J. P. Margrave, Dr. J. N. McCandless and Judge Ilowurd. Calling at tho Minek offile, dur ing our absence at Cliino Valley, Col. Bige low and Mr. Weaver greeted him. Calling agaiu, shortly after our return to the sanc tum, he was, wo take It, astonished at not finding us all that his fancy painted us, and straightway proceeded to writo down some very pleasing words about ourself and belter half, closing with kind wishes for things that are good, for all of which we feel duly grate ful. Indeed, our only sadness comes of the fact that wo wcro not at liberty to devote more time and attention to tbe comfort of brother Minor, who, nevertheless, left our village with a very good opinion of it, its peoplo and business. Mr. J. C. Bacon, acting editor, has another "Arizona and Sonora paper," in this issue, the wording of which is suggestive of a good dictionary bead. For news, wo have an account of the hang ing (lynching) "of Manuel Subiate, a Gila monster, who assisted in the murder of tho lato Mr. Lumley. Subiate mot his just fate at Kenyon station. When caught, he was in custody of the sheriff, who tried several dodges to save his prisoner's neck, but all to no purpose. Capt. Pool, or tbe Colorado Navigation Company, had informed tbe editor that trips would bo made every twenty days, between San Francisco and the mouth of tbe Colorado, by either the Jlontana or Newbern. Col. Martin, of tne Pay Department, U. S. A., had arrived, paid soldiers at Yuma, and started for interior posts. Capt. Bums, 5th cavalry, Capt. Geo. F. Price, or same regi ment, and R. II. Haines, of the telegraph line, had also arrived. Commenting upon what tho San Dicco World recently said, in effect that Mexico was about to sell Lower CsMonda to Ger many, it is set forth that If' would take" a great many German troops to take and hold the section, as our Government would not bo likely to stick iu finger in its mouth during the fermentation of such a eauer-krout bar gain. Sunday, September 14, a boy named Wm. Le Roy was crushed to death by a heavy box falling upon him, which box contained printing material for the Sentinel. The boy's father was accidentally killed, 14 months ago. Tbe Mexicana of Yuuia celebrated the an niversary of that country's divorce from Spain, by singing, shooting of anvils and guns. A certain house was decorated with Prussian, Mexican and American flags, raised above each other in the order in which we print them, which display would not last long here or elsewhere in the Territory, as tbe place for our glorious stars and bars is above all other flags. Wm. B. IIoorr.R & Co. The San Diego Daily Union, or a recent date, prints the fol lowing truthrul remarks concerning a firm or which all right thinking Arizonans are justly proud : "Among tbe arrivals per stage from Los Angeles yesterday, we note Col James M. Barney, or tbe firm or Wm. B. Hooper k Co., whose bouses in New York, San Fran cisco, Yuma and Ebrenberg are so well and ravorably known. This gentleman manages the Arizona branches, besides the contracts for supplies furnished the Indians in that Territory. The last appropriation inado by Congress for that purpoo having fallen far short of the amount required, this firm ad vanced the supplies used since January 1st, which amount in value to the sum of three hundred and forty thousand dollars. To say that this act was appreciated at Washington, is but simple justice to tho Ann which so promptly came to the aid of the people Of that Territory by advancing theso supplies, thereby enabling tbe Indians to bo fed and peace to be maintained. They have always been foremost in endeavoring to open up the resources of this valuable Territory. Col Barney deserves especial credit for the man ner in which ho has conducted th fn,i;. contracts, providing supplies at such timea uu piaccs as.tp cause no dissatisfaction by reason or quality, quantity or delay." From 800 JIh.es Away. Our friend, J. J. Backus, formerly of this place, now of Pinos Altos, New Mexico, informs us in a letter da ted September 15, that new and good mines were, every day, being found around his place, which is almost directly east from Prescott, near the head waters of tbe Gila river. Indians, he says, bad left tho T.il fir rut A raft. crvation, and keen eyes wcro watching their movements.

Cooke & Co., first mado public in New York Sept. 18, has bcon most disastrous in Its results, causing a wide spread panic and terminating in the suspen sion of some of thu oldest and most reliable business firms iu New York and Philadelphia. Among tho most notable suspensions report cd in New York arc the following : Flsk & Hatch, Freitas V Rablion, Edwards & Beer, Eugene Jackson, Day it Morse, Hoy & War ner, Theodore Bedell, A. M, Kidder, Jacob Little & Co., Thomas Reed & Co., W. II. War ren & Co., Grccnlearvt Norris, George Ballley and Tom Scott's New York house Ran dolph & Co. In Philadelphia theso suspen sions arc announced : Do Haven i Bro., K. W. Clarke & Co., II. II. Douglass, C. M Bayard, J. II. Yerkes, John Lloyd, and Gil baugh, Bond & Co., J. Cooke ib Co. hare posted tho following card: "To our Depositors: Some little time is re oulrvd to adluft our account and to hear Irom our different olllccs, when a statement will be pre pared showing tlie condition ol our nu-urs, wniiu wilt tte forwarded to vou throuuli the pott olllce. Until then we tcir your kind Indulgence, amurlnj: you that every t llort will tie made 10 liquidate our entire lndcblcdntsi wlib the least possible delnv." It is believed that tho troubles of J. Cooke k Co, were caused by their relations with tho N. P. R. R. Co. The secretary of this com pany says the lino will be constructed, but work will be retarded. Tho President and Richardson have deter mined to come to the rescue of tbe New York bank, and will purchase bonds largely and deposit a portion of tbo Government treasure in the National Bank depositories to stop the panic. It is believed, however, that the crisis Is past. Fiio.M EiiREKDEno. A letter or September 27, from Mr. A. Frank, contains tbe subjoin ed items : "The weather is pleasant and cool Business rather dull. J. B. Tuttle has opened a new store; Barley is scarce here. The ('onstancia Mill has resumed work again The superintendent, Mr. 'Burns, came out last stage. Mike McCoole was pounded to a jelly by Tom Allen, in seven rounds, ni.Jonly 19 min utes or time, in a prize fight, on the 23d or Sept., at a place in Illinois, 14 miles above St. Louis. Tbcro has been a reaction in tbo New York money market for the better. The banks have issued ten millions in loan certificates and arc now arranging for another issue or the same amount. In Albany and Philadelphia tbe excitement is over, and the New York banks, with a few exceptions, are considered sound. Tbe Mail Company's steamer Costa Rica has been bauled off the rocks and safely tow ed to tbe dry dock at Hunter's Point, in San Francisco bay. Tho Republic of France, if not politically is certainly a success in the matter of finance After having paid the enormous indemnity exneted by the Germans, in so short a time it has now agreed toadvsnre 40,000,000 franc for the assistance of the Spanish government, Bhing Stock. The chances arc now quite favorable that in the next five year, tho lulls and vales of Arizona will be well stocked with sheep, horses, mules, cattle, eta, and now is the time for citizens of California and other States, who arc casting around for good ranges, to come here and locate. Grass good all over the Territory, water is pretty plentiful, and the Indians can never draw as they have drawn upon stock men. The people or tbe Dominion or Ontario are subscribing one cent each, for a statute of the great departed Indion, Tecumseb. The people of Arizona would willingly subscribe for a statute to the red villian, Del-Che, wcro be dead and gone where his villianies ought to carry him. A Goon Time Comino. That staunch friend of our Territory, the San Francisco Alia California, in a review or matters here, figures a "bright prospect for Arizona," anil praies Gen. Crook for what he has done and is doing, in the way of "settling" Apaches, opening roads, etc.; all of which is pleasing to Arizonans, wlio know, full well, tbe truth of the Alu'a reasoning. Brevet Brigadier Gen M. P. Small, chief commissary or this military department, will, next week, advertise in tho MiKtn for pro posals for rurnishing troops, etc., with fresh beer, and mutton, bacon, flour, bean, com meol and honey, all or which supplies, it is to be hoped, will be rurnisbed by citizens or tbe Territory. t - SnooTixo or Pkter Hertz. Our fllohave county correspondents hsving railed to give us particulars or tbe shooting and killing of tho above named man, we reproduce tbo fol lowing flowery account or tho same, which we find in recent correspondence or the Inyo (Cal.) Independent: On the morning of tbe 19th instant wo bad a man for breakfast in the village of Mineral Park, some six miles north or this plaro. One Peter Hertz hud a wife, who was fond of drink, and ono Jack Dolan kept a sa loon, 0. a tbey call them in Arkansas, a 'grocery.'' The madam called on Dolan and uolan called on her, and it is the talk that improper rclullons existed between them. At 60 clock a. m. Peter called on Dolan and commenced shooting fired and missed 5 Do Ian fired and dittoed; Peter fired again with the wme result: Dolan fired ancf kenoed. His shot missed Peter's heart but an inch, and in twenty minutes Peter Hertz, tho ninth man. was gone. Dolan was examined before Justice h. t. Gallager9f this place and dis charged. Ibis little episode occupied but two days, altogether. Favors Mr. 11. Sexton, of tho Vulture Mining Company, Wickenburg, Gov. R. 0. McCormick and bis private secretary, Mr. U. L.
