The Miner, on this pleasant Christmas Eve, greets its two thousand patrons and twonty thousand readers, and hopes that such of them as may not be provided with turkeys, chickens, etc., will have some other good dishes upon which to feast, for, sinco ever so long ago, it has been customary for Christians, whithersoever dispersed around the globe, to honor Christmas the day upon which Christ came down, in order foaavo sin nors by leasting and feeling good, in a gen eral way. Now, there are poor people, evcti in Ari zona people who aro not able to procure such as they ought to have to eat and drink upon this day, and it is to them tbo kind- hearted and benevolent among us should turn their attention, u did the Great Being whose coming on earth rich and poor, alike, cele brat.

A Good Max Gone. A, telegram to Mr. N. B. Bowers, to-day, announces the death, by consumption, of his brother, Herbert Bowers, in San Francisco, Sunday, December 21, aged 51 years. Mr. Jiowcrs was anative 0f Greenfield, Hillsboro County, New Hamp other business, being for a long time in Ne vada City, engaged in a banking business, He came to Arizona about ten years ago, and after placer raining on Hassayampa and Lynx creeks, obtained the appointment of Sutler at Fort Whipple, which position he held at the timo of his death. Sir. Bowers was a member of the Masonic and Odd-Fellow Lodges in Prescott, and one of tho most respected members of the com munity. A pioneer in Northern Arizona ho was well known. throughout the Territory, and tho news of his death will occasion profound regret among his numerous friends throughout this Territory and in California. While hundreds, perhaps thousand, of cattle, sheep, etc., perished in Northern Cali fornia during the late run of rain and snow, wo have yet to learn of any of our stock men suffering loss from our late storms, which have been severe and almost unJookcd for.

Can't say that we aro sorry for Mr. Attor ney-General Williams. Ho ought to havo had better luck than to havo been rejected by the Senate. I5,ut. he can stand tho rejee tion if the President will only keep him in tho position of Attorney-.General of the United oiaies. uut, again, can President urant stand up against public opinion, and keep Mr. Williams, now that tho Republic, through its Senate, has rsjectod him for Chief Justice? Wa guess not. One of onr dispatches, yesterday, leads us to believe that Congress has restored to itself the privilege of franking, and, wo believe, to newspapers, tho right of free circulation in tho counties where published, with, perhaps, free (of lostage) exchanges, . of wbieb, If r' " , ....-.., ..-., true, will not, in tbo least, clato us, for we could havo made an honest living without any "favora" of thwkmd from Congress.

Letter from Gov. Fesauoira. Wo givo below a letter from tho Governor of Sonora to tho San Francisco Alta, relative to Apache outrages in that State. Whatever view may bo taken of the case elsewhere, wa nro sure all Arizonana will sympathise with our unfortunate Mexican neighbors: Uues. Bonora, November 5, 1373, VAdort Alia . The letter of Edward l Stnlib, CommlMlnuer of Indian Airitrn. addressed to nit, has not reached tne, and I obtained a knowledge of It solely from Its publication in the Alta; but i navo to-aay sent a reply, in the nopo mat ma in tclllircnco and sense or luitlce will put an end to tbo great evils Inflicted on Sonora by the Apaches or mo uuiricnnus Jtescrvanon.

The saracea have appeared In Sonora with army saddle, army clutmnt;, army bianKct, anu aitnough the presen tation ortbeso things to ibetu by the Government of the United States would be considered otfen- sivo by our people under present circumstances. yet ot the liberality In itself, tho Government of Mexico could not complain. Neither does it concern Mexico to know that Gen Howard did not makcatrcaty in writing with Cacblae, or that bo told tbo savage that raids Into Mexico would be considered as if made into American territory. The main point of the re sponsibility of tbo Indian Bureau conalau in the tact that Cacblso and hi tribe, whllo llrlug on tbo Cblrlcahua reservation, at peace with the Ameri can authorities, by virtue of au agreement, writ ten or unwritten, with lien Howard, make syste matic excursions into Sonora to plunder and slay the citizens of Mexico. These Indians have made their Jorey: costlscosslr every dav. and neither tho local, civil, nor military authorities of the united states nave prevented or made auy serious attempt to preVcnt tbelr crimes, nor have tbey even been authorized to Intervene. Suppose that Mexico should establish a colony of professional murderers and highwaymen on tne oorder, near some American settlement, and protect them there whllo they made their settle ment a focus of conspiracy against the order, property and the lives of tho citizens ol the United States : would not. in such case, the Indi an Bureau agree with mo that Mexleo had com mitted a serious International crime ? And If that oe so, win jiremitn deny mat a similar otrence has been committed in the establishment or that focus or devastation aud death tor the peon focus of devastation aud death lor the people of fan 00 the Ufddwhut reservation, and that , and that i responsi- fnw h nfr.mr.AV m V M WttbMkV The only method of avoldlncr tho rcsnonalbilitv wonld be by proving that the Apaches, who rob and mnrdcr our people, are not those who live on tne Arizona reservation, but this is Impossible. There are hundreds of witnesses, tbouaandsof evidences and proors, in uansestlng abundance, ajratnsi toe unincsuus reservation Indians. I tc- fer you to the Ures Estrella ol the 10th of Octo ber, sent to you with this. i in other numbers or the same journal yon will III read of numerous assassinations and denfo- datlons, committed by the same savages, arnxd with excellent rifles aud the best metallic cart ridges. Ail the Apaches coming into Sonora tru now provided with the best weapons, which ire very scarce in Honors, and cannot be obtained here by our citizens, nor even by the Government, without ordering them from distant cities. D4cs it'uot seem strange that tbey should all have Ibe nesi mica i I tbank von for vour plea In behalf of Instice. and I trust you will continue to demand a prompt by the reservation Apaches, and for the disgrace ffaA" enaing ior mo mierini:i mulcted upon rjooora science of the American people has already re belled against the course pursued toward the Apaches in Sonora. and that the Alta is the faith- fnl reflex of tbo public opinion. With the highest appreciation, V. Pesqueiuu John Smith, of McDowell, seems determin ed to prcscrvo his name in tho annals of the country, though he has no children to namo after himself. His liberality in improving tho school house in Phconlr, at his personal expense, as noticed in our Salt River Valley correspondence, in Monday's iisao, shows ft,tPMwltnei.luIrW tnltln his character, and he is bound to help some body's children to get along.
