SU-Ik. of tho Hardshell Bonanra Con firmed. Parties- in from Harshnw confirm the reported new strike in the Hard shell mine, and say that it is even more imoortant than reported. Mr. Let, who'came in last night, estimates the ore body to be 25 feet wide, and ay itcropi out like a great dyke and rites from fifteen to twenty feet above the surface or the ground. The new lad ii tome six hundred feet norUfof the shift upon which most of tho de velopment has been made. It is now believed that, like tho Hermosa, the Hardshell vein extendi continuously the entire length of the claim.- A gnat dsal of time and money has been spent in hunting this Hardshell bonanza. Nearly two years ago Dan. Gillette spent about $4,000 in search lag for it. He had previously found two large bowlders In the gulch south cl the present strike, containing very rich ore, with a generous mixturo of horn silver, but no ore which exactly rtsembled t could be found. He therefore let his bond on the mines expire, ilr. Richardson afterwards Vougbt the mino for $30,000, dnd sunk a. shait on the mine near the gulch to & depth of 125 feet, and run a drift about 120 feet, taking out 800 tons of very good ore, and it was upon this showing thatMr. Gillette again became interested in the mine. Last week some prospectors who were passing that way Stopped near the immense cropping, which had always been mistaken tor a porphyry dyke, and picked into it, when to their astonishment it appear ed to them the exact counterpart of the rich ore found in the bowlder in the gulch so long ago. They returued ts camp and informed some friends and Mr. Richardson, Superintendent ef the mine, of the new rind, when the j immediately returned to the tw discorcry. Since that time many f the mining men and so-called ex perts of Harsbaw have examined the " sew bonanza " as they term it, and they all declare it a remarkable for nation. llr ..Richardson left Wednesday for the mine under instructions from Dan tflllettt to begin a shaft at the new discovery at once and thoroughly prospect it. llr. Gillette, who is now la San Francisco, will return in a few days, when he will proceed to put the mine, which now promises to be a veritable bonanaa, into shape, and proceed to erect a mill at once, having a sufficient amount of ore in sight to warrant sucn a course. It aliurds Us great pleasure to hear of such strikes la Harsbaw; it will stimulate otbors to renewed efforts in further search of like bonanzas, and that camp may yet become the peer of Tombstone in htr aarvslously rich mines and yield of silver bars. Tombstone' Epitaph. Tombstone city differs from the gen ual run of tombstone, as marking the abiding plnce ol live corpses only, til very lively and enterprising they are, we are happy to state. Why then is it that they tolerate an " epitaph sach as, if imposed on an ordinary toabstone, would cause it to fly into a thousand places, and the deadest of dead corpses to buret the confines ol the narrow tomb in indignant protect There are many ludicrous, and from their manifest lnappropriuteness, Birth moving, epitaphs going the rounds of the press; but the present Epitaph writer, alias inebriated editor (inebriated through long habit and editor by courtesy; can safely defy, in this respect, the competition of the cambiced graveyards of the world. While we do not approve of the Jfuggst's recent rhythmical witticism as to the others of the Epitaph's staff. We do think that it came pretty near sizing both the quantity and the qual ity of the material requisite in the composition of the person hero al lseed to. The Epitaph was originally con ducted in such a manner as to render its name appropriate, and we cannot coscciv why it should recede from iu self-appointed task simply to create a sinecure for an incompetent noodle whose sole ambition is to bo called an editor, even though it bo by a very hard stretch of courtesy. We have sincerity hoped for belter things both for our sister city and the proprietors Of that paper. Tb Coal FUlda. Of the extent and character of the recently discovered coal fields in Ari tona the Journal says: ' The valley on Deer Creek is about ten or twelve jolles longhand forms a natural basin. Last Wednesday George Martin and George Cook in prospecting found croppings, shale and ledge matter, which cover almost the entire sur face of from 800 to 1000 acres of land. The ledges in several places crop out, with a dip ol 20 degrees to the south east. From breaks in the surfaco of the land and a washout where the water has cut through, it is evident that one of the ledges is at least 20 feet thick. The others will have to he prospected before the owners can determine their extent. It is certain y a wonderful discovery of magniti eeat coal beds. The discoverers brought some fine samples to town, which wsrc tested yesterday in a Blacksmith shop, and they burned beautifully. It is bituminous coal of a superior character, specially adapt ed to railroading or machinery of any hind. In the last few days'persons have gone thither and are prospecting the vallty in search of coal. Many locations have already been made. These coal fields are about 18 miles iron the Ssn Pedro Talley, and can be reached by a road going up Deer Creek Talley. The line of the pro jected railroad from Globe to Tomb stone is right along that valley. Messrs. Martin, Cook, Oates, Wicks aid others have taken up two sections f 160 acres each, and propose to comnoncs operations in connection jrltk the ssxae at an early date. The Now President Hon. Jams A. Gabfield was to day Inaugurated as President of the United States, timid such enthusiasm as is seldom accorded any ruler in entering upon his official duties. President Garfield Is a notable rep resentative of the throng of Americans who are properly classed as self-made meu. He was born in Orange, Cuya hoga county, Ohio, Kovcmber 18, 1831. By great perseverance and in dustry, he supplied himself with sufficient means to graduate with honors at Williams College, Massa chusetts, in 1856, when he adopted the profession of law in 1655, and In 18G0 he was a member of the Ohio Senate. In 1861 he entered the army as Colonel of the Forty-second Regi ment of Volunteers; was appointed a Brigadier General in 1803, the day that he fought in the battle of Middle Creek, Kentucky. He subsequently served at Shiloh, Corinth, and in Ala bama, and early in 1863 he was ap pointed Chief of Staff, to General Rosecrans, with whom he served up the battle of Chicamauga. In 1864 he was elected a Representative from Ohio to the Thirty-eighth Congress, serving as a member of the Committee on Military Affairs. Before taking his seat m Congress be was appointed a Major-General of Volunteers "for gallant and meritorious services in the battle of Chicamauga, Georgia, from September 18, 18U3." Re-elected to the Thirty-ninth Cungrcis, serving on the Committee ou W.jt and Means, that on the Postal Rmlroad to New York, and as Chairman of that on a Bureau of Education, and also as Regent of the Smithsonian Institution. He wa9 also a Delegate to tne Philidelphia Loy alists' Convention " of 1800, and to tho " Soldiers' Convention " held in Pittsburg, and was re-elected to the Fortieth Congress, serving on old committees, and as Chairman of the committee on Military Affairs. Re elected to the four succeeding Con gresses, serving as Chairman of the committees on Banking and Curren cy, the "Census and the committee on Appropriations, and as Regent of the Smithsonian Institution. In 1872 be received the degree of L. L. D from Williams' College. Be was elected to the SSih, 89th, 40th, 41st, 42d. 43d, 44th, 45th and 46th Congress. Mr. Gar field is a very able and polished speak er, and his influence in tho House has been very great, bring ing upon his bead the usual asper sions of envious, ambitious and un scrupulous politicians. His nomina tion at Chicago was a compromise between the friends of two of Amer ica's greatest citizens, and it is highly probable that the country will be the gainer by it. To-day he enters upon his task under the most favorable aus pices, and that he will perform it with courage, zeal and fidelity there is no particle of doubt. Mr. Hayes goes out of office with a good record. During bis administra tion the country has grown peaceful and prosperous; the public debt has been materially decreased, and many reforms inaugurated. He retires with the good will of all and enmity of but few. TTaibtncton Camp. The ores of Washington Camp have, upon development, undergone a de cided change. Many of the mines which have hitherto yielded smelting ore have lost a heavy per cent, of lead as depth is attained, and a number of them may now be considered as yield, ing free milling ore. It haslongbeen a question among mining men as to the best metbed of treating the ores of this camp, and we are glnd to hear ef the change, as ore can be milled at much less per ton than it can be smelted. Another good feature ot the mines being developed in Washington Camp is that the ore is much finer than it was on the surface, and, though it has not been made public, It is be lieved that those who have the man agement of the "pool mines" have decided to erect a large mill, Instead of smelters, as originally intended. There is no doubt but the ore of the Ohio mine, the Belmont, Silver Bill, Grasshopper Pelican may be milled; and as LUCse mines show up such enormous bodies of ore, mills of large capacity could I, ;it busily employed without any diflkulty what ever. Two Ehifts of men are now at work on the Ohio, and the output of ore is said to be very large. The pool company have completed a good ore road from the old Washington Camp to the Ohio and Ella mines, and seem to be getting everything in readiness preparatory to the erection of reduc tion works We are in receipt of a copy of a "memorial to Congress asking the segregation of Northern Arizona and the formation of a new State embrac ing the southern portion of the Ter ritory and the southern counties of California," introduced in the Terri torial Legislative Assembly by Hon. J. F. KnaDp, of Yuma. We suggest as a substitute that a memorial be pre sented to Congress asking that the county of Yavapai be attached to Utah. The idea would be scarcely more ridiculous. Tne EDitarjh learns that two men at Bisbee, whose names are not known, on Monday evening engaged in a quarrel, which resulted in one of them being snot turougn me necs, wic wound being fatal. It was reuorted in Bisbee that the body of a Mexican had just been found. Shooting can be heard at all times of the day aud night, and altogether Bisbee is a very lively ' camp.

T. TChat TT11I Become ofTlirtin? When the Camp Lowell Military Reservation was first laid out it em braced a much less area than is em braced In the present reservation, it having subsequently been extended by an order from the Secretary of War. At the timo the reservation was ex tended there wore a number of settlers already in possession of ranches, upon which houses had been built, fields fenced and trees planted. They settled upon this land in good faith when it biiongtd to the government. Having settled upon this ground prior to the date that the land was set aside as a military reser. vntlon, they had supposed anrl many of them do yet that their right being the oldest, is tho best; but this is not tho case. The government has, for many years past, reserved the right to establish or extend military reservations over any lands tho title of which is held by the United States, and whore such land has been "squat ted upon " by settlers, the government reserves the right to lake possession of such land in the name and for the use of the United States, and tne only redress such settlers or squatters have is a fair compensation for the im provements put upon the lands, which may be determined by a board of ar bitration appointed by tho govern ment. This to the settlers no doubt seems a one-sided and arbitrary rul ing, but it is so, and they must abido by it. Relief for at least a portion of these settlers may be bad by curtailing the limits of the reservation. At lent two officers of the army who haTe had command of Camp Lowell have expressed a willingness to recom mend such a change to the War De partment, and we have heard that Col. Carr, tho officer now incomtn md, has expressed himself in favor of a similar measure. Much complaint has reached us of late from settlers upon this reserva tion. They complain of the faarrb treatment of the commanding officer, who has, as they say, told them that Ihey must leave the reservation. In ono instance one of the oldest settlers upon the land, who is poor and in the habit of visiting Tucson on business, bad a few sticks of dry wood in his wagon which he designed to use for camping purposes, was arrested and sent to Tucson under guard as a "wood thief.'' Suchacourso on the part of the commanding officer seems arbitrary and uncalled fer. It is cer tainly a very small business for a Colonel of the araav to engage in. If these people are to le removed from the reservation it should be done ac cording to law. If the ranches of these poor men are needed for the use of the United States, let the proper officers appoint a board of arbitration and give them a fair valuation for their improvements. They should not be sent adriit, without a dollar in their pockets, and no homes to go to. That would be a great injustice, and we do not believe the Secretary of War would countenance such a course. However, we undcrataud a petition has been for warded to the proper authorities with a view of reducing the limits of the reservation, and as the territory em braced is larger than is necessary for the use of so small a garrison, we have hopes that it may meet with sue ceis. Territorial Newt. Phenix can probably bear away the honor of possesting more societies and organizations than any other town in the Territory. A careful enuraer ation of such institutions show as a result: Two Masonic bodies, (with a third tne Eastern bur In tne pros pectivc), two Odd Fellows' Lodges, one KuighU of Pythias Lodge, one Good Teuipltir Lodge, a Ladies' Lit erary Society , a Cosmopolitan Club, a Library Association, an Amateur Minstrel Troupe, a Dramatic Society, a Bras: and Siring Band, a Cemetery Association, a German Glee Blub, an Olla Club, a Bohemia Club and base ball clubs.

News reached us last evening of anotber fatal affray which occurred yesterday at Bisbee. A man named McDougal, formerly of Bodie, and his antagonist whose name we did not learn, being both being killed by deadly weapons iu the hands of each other, both firing fatal shots. The trouble arose from a quarrel in refer ence to some mining property, but we are without further particulars. Tombstone Nugget. Tombstone district is yielding $250,. 000 monthly, and the year's product may reach five millions. Next month the SO-slamp mill of the Grand Cen tral mine will be running on rich ore, while works will soon be erected for the Head Center. Thus two additional mines will send forth their products to swell the yield of Tombstone, while other new mines are being opened and new mills are being built. Nugget. Epltipb. Bisbee, February 20. James Jour dan, a saloon keeper and at present rrestdent ot tne Elmers' union, shot and mortally wounded Ben Hogan, a noted prize fighter. The shooting grew out ot a quarrel 'nat occurred in the early part of the tvening between Jourdan ana a man r meu O JBrlen. Hogan tried to separate the combat ants and to make peace, and for this Jourdan became angry and used hot words against Hogan, wiiereupou both, in the latter part of the ovening, became abusive and, drinking heavy, the result was as above. Hogan in all probability may recover. jiAitE Lett. A special dispatch from Willcox stales that Wm. Watson has been held to answer for shooting George Collins, and that Charles W.

The name of ex Senator Sar gent was prominently suggested, but it is understood, that iu the course of the conversation, Messrs. Jones, Mil ler and Pacheco expressed their high regard for Representative Horace Davis, and said in effect that hts ap pointment to a cabinet position would be acceptable if tha President-elect from any reason considered him tb'e most eligible. General Garfield made nn decision or definite response to the remarks of the members of the com mittee, but they came away with the impression that the rival claimsof the states and sections east of the Rocky mountains will absorb all the cabinet positions nnd there is very little chance at present for any appointment from the Pacific Coast. finn Franclioa .Markets.; San Fhancisco, March 3.

Heavy rains have fallen throughout the country, inflicting heavy damages to roads and bridges. The Inaagarnl Address. San Fkancisco, March 4. Presl dent Garfield, in his inaugural, after noting the fact that the centennial of the adoption of the first written Con ptituiion of the United Stales was three days pist, proceeded to review briefly the history of the national progress in material prosperity and ihe experiment of popular govern ment under the constitutiou as finally adopted, deducing that the nation was determined to go on developing the great possibilities of the future, pre serving what has been gained to lib erty and good government, and leav ing behind ail controversies concerning matters which have been irrevocably settled. The supremacy of the nation, contested for half a century, should be no longer a question for debate, but was forever settled. Referring to the enfranchisement of the black., he en larked on the benefits to bo derived trom it. There ceuld be no middle ground between slavery and cquaiiza tlonship, for there they deserved en couragement in their efforts iin self help, and so far the speaker's author ity could lawfully extend they should receive full and equal protection of the constitution and laws. The ar gument against the freedom of the ballot In some sections of tho country, that good local government is impos sible if a mass of ignorant negroes are allowed to vote, is some palliation of the action of those who denvthem suffrage, but such denial is not only an evil but a crime, which, if persist ed in, will destroy the government it self. The question of suffrage will never give repose or safety until each State makes and keeps the ballot free and pure by the strong sanction of the law. Tne forces of the people should be summoned to meet this danger by the saving Influence of universal edu. cation, and tho sections " race and partisanship," should be luakaowa ia this. Tho ProtiHent next referred to mo unparalleled prosperity of the country, the cruse of which is due to fruitful seasons, but to which the preservation of public credit and resumption had contributed greatly. Gold and silver is the only safe foundation for a mon etary system.
