Bad as our mundane sphere may be, there aro comparatively but few of its denizens who, in open court and nnde oath, havo the hardihood to deliberately falsify and swear away any littlo previous good character that he or they may hate had. But instances of this kind will oc cassionally occur, more especially large cities, where the cosmopolitan char- ureter of its citizens, tho diversity of pur enits and the many influences under which men aro called upon to pass their existence, tends to create the characters in question. Tucson, although not large uas one of the homo genius in question inacasetnedbefoio Judge Stilwell.a few days ago, for the purpose of setting aside a deed to mining property in the i.mpire district, given to the character ii question by a man so under the influence u liquor as to he held by judL-e and jury, before wliom the caso wah tried to be irresponsible, and the deed to which j he had lieen wheedled into giving was declared to be of no value. The mines nsu been bonded to tho defendant for some MX)0 or in case of but half being taien the amount would behalf tho sum named. But as tho defendant was tin able to market said mines tho bond be¬ came void. About ten days afterwards the complainant happened to be in town, and unfortunately nuder the influence of liquor, when the defendant, taking advantage of the man's condition, had him make out a deed for his half of the properties in question, the deed stating that the consideration was $3000, when in reality it was $33 and a gun of ne- culiar mascot no value to anv one, as cartridges cannot be procured other thnn at the place where the gun was manufactured. After the deed had been 'given, tho plaintiff was taken before a notarv at eight o'clock that same night, and in his drunken condition certified to it, but on sobering up and learning of what had happened, demanded back his deed. and offered to make restitution by re¬ turning the money and gun, but as it was refused, Buit was entered, and on trial the result was as auove given. When defendant was testifying he added falsehood to his unblushing im pudence, denying in sum toto all the most important evidence bearing on the case, but afterward, by documents and letters written by himself his evidence was proven to be grossly false, ffis contemptuous denial that the com. plainant had over been in his house or that ho had been socially intimate with him was met by thefollowiug letter. "Dear : I found your knife on the lioor of my parlor, and havo it with me for delivery to its rightful owner, the first time we meet, which I fondly hope will not be many weeks ahead." And again, "On ray arrival in town I will im¬ mediately write you; on Fridav, and Saturday, and Sunday, and everv day thereafter. Go to the Empire store for letters from mc" Many other of fimi lar import could bo noted. It was alio proven that the complainant hadslcpt in the defendant's house, and had been treated with the most cordial familiarity and acknowledged as a friend, in the hope of swindling the man out of his hard-earned property; and what sets tho perjurer in a still more damning light is that he once hung out his shingle as a teacher of divine truths and is said to yet occasionally iudnlge in that direc¬ tion. Jndge Stilwell charged tho jury on five different counts, in each of which a verdict was given against the defend OUR FUTURE WATER SUPPLY. water Pars and Clew-Quantity tJnllialted- Quality Wlthmt Suporlor Tha Coiutractloa nf Snpply Work to be InwMlalely Eajrin. Much has the subject ot water been discussed by the citizens of Tucson, but few are aware of the source of tho proposed supply, or the locality of the country from which the supply is to bo drawn. When tho projectors of the present scheme announced their inten tfon of making the Punta do Agua the supply head, tho point through misinterpretation of locality, the name being common to several springs within a radius of ten miles, was misplnced. The Punta de Agua in the Cienega on the Altar road being tho spring which iu the minds ot many, tho basis of the proposed wat.-r system was located an people shook their heads, and reason ably too, at the feasibility of the entire project, but as we stated on a previous occasion, the ioint or iJaco in que tiou is distant not more than six miles to the south of tho city on the ranch of Captain Gay, at which place the water breaks out in great force, pure and clear in a volume ot nearly one million gallons in every twenty-four hours, which will bo more than doubly sufficient to mee any and every demand that the wauts of the city may require and with sufficient head to throw five separate streams from as many different nozzles at tho samo time, oTer the golden eagle at the City Hall, at which place the pressure head will be about seventy feet. the cosirAxr Have acquired the right to and own milo of land running north from the base of supply and towards the city and along which thoy will lay an eighteenth inch pipe to be reduced at given point near tho city, which it will enter at the intersection of Seventeenth street and Stone Avenue, to one twelve inches, which will be capable of deliver¬ ing, if necessary, fully rrVE HC.NDBED ant. ' Mil. N". W. lirown, e known to the traveling public as one of the hospitable entertainors at the Sahuanto, on the At tar road, recently met with an irreparable loss in the death of his two children. Without flattery, it can truthfully be said that they were both bright-looking and beautiful the elder, a little girl about four years old, being remarkably so, and the other, a boy of three, was all that father's and number's heart could wish. Mr. tirown has tor the past three years been living at the Sahuarita, ibout twenty miles south of this place, his family in the meantime, residing at Santa Cruz, Call fornia; but this spring, having made prep¬ arations, he brought them to Anion a. When in Tucson it was known that the children were ailing, but it was adjudged to be nothing more than a slight indispo¬ sition resulting from their lecent journey. On arriving home, lionet er, a malignant. type of scarlet fever manifested itself. Medical aid was at once summoned and all that human skill and loving hands could do availed nothing. The little girl died on the :7th of March, and was fol lowed by her brother on the succeeding day. Th: father and mother, now desolate in their loneliness, have in their deep sor¬ row the heartfelt sympathy ol the Cm Abt: . ;, incorporation of tho Ari z ' and Sonora Development Company ' r ''"l in the Recorder's office yester- l-7 Tue term of duration of said cor- r.it (ia is to be fifty years, and its pur- ' is "to locate, Hirchase,aequire,hold, ' a, inf upy.use, sell, and dispose of if s and mining property; water rights. aniin;, milling, agriculturtd and . r'lrposesand uses; ores, metals, -f ils and real and personal property ' -y kind, character and description; :'-r.'ge in mining, milling and smelt- ""-a, minerals and metals; to develop '-m and mining properties; to engage u -i -ig contract work of every kind, -arai t.-r and description, and to do and Fc-'.-n generally all such acta and -rt3 as way be necepsary, proper, use- r expedient, in order to effeelnally err) (.athe brines and operations of , 0 "oration, in all its branches, lUm Territory of Arizona, and the Sonora, of fie Republic of Mex- - Tue principal place of business is ' , 18 Tucson and the capital stock is "oe "ue tiiouand shares, the aggregate tahte of which shall be one thousand ner uLsrc. Mn. C. J. Lavep.t, who came in from Oro Blanco last evening, reports matters qniet in that direction, although con¬ siderable work is being done in tho va rious mines, generally among those be- longing to the Orion Company, the most work is being done. The Montana mine has a body of ore about 32 feet across, every foot of which is said will pay for reducing. The mine has alout 700 feet of tunnels and shafts, and is said to be one of the most promising properties of that section. About twelve men are kept at work pushing developments. The Warsaw mine, which for the past six weeks has been idle, is about to re¬ sume operations, when an additional number of men will be put on. The Orion Company nt the present time em¬ ploys abont tweuty-five. f TriB contract to carry the mails be¬ tween Tucson and the new postoffice of Santa Catalina.nt the Copper camp, has been awarded to Mr. H. Ashworth, who will enter upon his duties as soon as rertain of the conditions of the contract aro arranged. Tho vigorous working of the mines of the copper company re¬ quires n large force of men, and quite a camp has sprung up in the mountains. The beauties of the location, its bealth- fulne's and delightful temperature will attract thither many of Tucson's people this hummer, and to meet the wants of travelers, Mr. Ashworth is preparing an excellent line of stages. It will bo seen by a call published elsewhere that a meeting will bo held on the evening of the 15th instant in Ia viu's Hall, to organize the Republican party for tho approaching campaign. This is n move in the right direction. Tho early and thorough organization will place the party in a position in this county to do vigorous work which will surely result in a sweeping victory at tho polls. Uncle Isaac Goldberg has a full supply of fresh water to sell. His springs arc situated ia the Santa Catari- na mountains about eighteen miles north of this place. His supply is said to be unlimited and the witter is the product of the beautiful snow. Tnn Supervisors have made an ap¬ propriation of S700 for Recorder Drake to have certain old and time-worn books of record transcribed, in accordance to a recommendation of the grand jury. THOUSAXD OALLONS OF WATER Every succeeding twenty-four hours. The course of the main will be along Stone Avenue to Congress street, where a further reduction will be made, thence continuing to any desired limit. All mains (south of Congress street running cast and west will bo of the same capacity as the principal one on Stone Avenue, thus guaranteeing a sup¬ ply fully adequate to every want. Work will be commenced in the course of about ten days and pushed rapidly forward to its completion, the time of which will not exceed ninety days. It is the purpose of the Company to no construct their works ns to secure a permanent and continuous flow, subject to cessation from no cause other thau than those over which mau has no con¬ trol. Mr. Sylvester Watts, a man of great etperience as a successful origin¬ ator and manager of many similar en¬ terprises, will have immediate charge of the affair. It is his purpose to construct nt the water Jiead a "fobay" or coffer dam made of timber and stone to be sunk into the gravel for a depth of eight feet and the water percolating through the clean and polished gravel entering the 18-inch main leading to the.city. The fobay will be of sufficient height as to render it impossible for any surface water of any quality whatever to enter. The supply will be thus kept pure and free from outside contamination, so that at its delivery in this cit it will be as pure as when it first rippled down the mountain sides. THESHLKjIAX PARTY. Wait They Ar Dolaz aa4 Where They Are They Win Be ia Taciosoa Moidij or Tuesliy. Gen. Sherman, accompanied by his daughter, Gen. Willcox, Commanding De¬ partment ol Arizona, Gen. Poe of Gen. Sherman's staff, and daughter; Col. Mor¬ row, also of his staff, and Capt. Haskell, of the 1 2th infantry, aid to the Depart¬ ment Comirundcr, arrived at Fort Grant on Saturday last on a tour of inspection to the various interior posts in this Ter¬ ritory. The entire party were guests while at Grant, of Col. Foulk, 6th U. S Cavalry. On Sunday last the General of the army, accompanied by his staff, Gen. Willcox and officers of the garrison, made an informal inspection ot the post pas¬ sing through the men's quarters, hospital, cavalry stables, etc On Hon day he proceeded with Gen. Poe and Col. Mor¬ row en route to inspect Fort Thomas, distant about 40 miles north of Grant, and thence to the San Carlos Indian agency and the various Indian camps surrounding it. The party arrived at Thomas early the same afternoon of de¬ parture from Grant and made an inspec¬ tion of that post the same afternoon. On Tuesday morning the party left Fort Thomas and arrived at San Carlos'about 3 p. it. same day distant from Fort Thomas about 35 miles down the Gila river. Wednesday they left San Larlos and returned to Fort Thomas the same day. On Thursday the party left Fort Thomas and proceeded to Fort Grant in¬ tending to arrive at the latter post about r. M. The Misses Sherman and Poe, General Willcox, and Capt. Haskell re¬ mained at Grant ikhilethe General of the army and staff visitedTorts Thomas and San Carlos. Thcladies passed a very pleas¬ ant time while at Grant, with horseback riding, driving and visiting the several canyons and other places of interest in the vicinity of the post. In one of their excursions up 1 canyons and mountain streams a large and beautiful lake or pool of water was very much admired, and named in honor of the distinguished visiting guests "Sherman Pool." A large volume of clear mountain water, after winding its way down a very rugged and rocky canyon flows over precipice of high rocks and making quite a large fall, empties into the pool referred to, below. The fall was named "Winifred," also in honor of one of the visiting party. The entire party remained as guests of Col. Foulk until to day, (Friday), when it was the intention of the General and his party to proceed to Willcox Station on the Southern Pacific road, distant from Grant south about 25 miles; hence they will pro¬ ceed to Tombstone and Huachuca, and after visiting other points of interest will reach Tucson on Monday or Tuesday next, Circumstances do not favor Mr Samuel Hughes in his efforts to leave Tucson for a sojourn in other portions of the lootstool. On two occasions, when intending to start for the East he ar¬ rived at the depot too late to catchj the train. This morning he determined to be on time, and was at the depot an hour before the train was due, but doomed to disappointment, he learned that on this occasion the train was six hours behind schedule time. This certainly seems a conspiracy of the fates to impress Mr. Hughes with the fact that he is but frail humanity, and that while man proposes, O od disposes. Prof. G. C. Hall's Report. The annual report ot tho public schools of Tucson, in pamphlet form, has, under tho supervisiou of Prof. Geo. C. Hall, by whom it was issued, made its appearance, and, to parents especially, is very interesting readin It is fidl in its details, and contains many valuable suggestions relating to education and to the proper method for conducting the schools underhis charge. It is nddressed.to the Honorable Board of Trustees, and opens with an account of the condition of the school at the time the Professor assumed charge, a little over a year ago, at which time a portion of the scholars wore somewhat disposed to bo turbulent, and uniu clined to submit to the radical change which he denied necessary to inaugurate; but by good management and a judi¬ cious grading ot the schools, all difii culties were overcome, and tho new- order of things produced good fruit. In the proper grading of the schools, Mr. Hall experienced much difficulty, becnue of tho inequality of the various studies iu which tho student were ex¬ pected to be, and ought to have been, equally proficient. Thus, for iustance, a scholar well advanced in arithmetic was uuable to read English, and so on. This for a time necessitated special in¬ struction. Professor Hall behoves thnt by mixed classes of boys and girls, the cause of education can best be sub¬ served; but a3 the boya were further ad. vanced iu their studies thau the girls, the difficulty of grading them was further heightened by that fact, but they were eventually overcome, and the grades thoroughly defined. As stated, Professor Hall is a strong advocate of the co-education of thescxea and quotes in support of his argument the California State Report of 187C as follows: The co-edncation of the sexes has many opponents, but in twenty years ex- perence in mixed schools, has led me to believe that most of the objections urged against them aro without foundation. In fact tho influence ot the sexes over each other, is beneficial mentally, morall and socially. As iu families, the best types of true manhood and womanhood have been developed when sons and daughters have been reared together, so in schools, co-education has a tendency to refine the males and to give strengtli of character to the females. I here is 111 the mixed schools a health spirit of emu laiion ueiween tuo noys anu gin, which timnlates mental activity. I-iirtlior more, it is easier to teach that Politeness wnich renders society ngreeaule. Prof. W. T. Lncky, formerly principal of the Jaiuornia state formal school says: Alter an experience 01 thirty-tour years in teaching, thirty-ono of which "have been in mixed schools, I am fullv con¬ vinced that tho intellectual, moral and social advancement of each sex is pro¬ moted by co-education. There are at this time, according to the estimate made by Professor Hall, at least 1500 children in this district ol uitable age to attend school. After deducting the number enrolled in the Public Schools, 2S0; and in the Catholic Schools, 130; there are 770 who do not attend nny school whatever. This, ns the Professor says, is a bad showing for our city. "We have n compulsory law in our Territorial Code, but it i3 not enforced. The law provides that every person aving charge or. children between fie ges of eight and fourteen, shall keep them in school not less than sixteen weeks during each school year; eight weeks of which shall be consecutive; provided, that tho children are mentally nud physically strong enough to attend, and provided, that there is a school ithin two mil-s. The nenaltv for non¬ compliance, is a fine of not less than fcllXJ for the first offense, and not les than $200 for the second offense." If the above law was even but par¬ tially enforced, ignorance and vice would be diminished iu our tnidbt, and many children, now growing up to evil ways and idleness, would, if forced to become educated, be mentally and morally im¬ proved thereby. Irregularity of attendance to which many of the children were prone, ha?, uuder tho present discipline, been much diminished, although it yet continues to be a source of much annoyance, as is also the tardiness of many scholars.whn attribute the late hour of their arrival to the want of rising in time to be at the school by 9 o'clock in th morning. Such excuses by parents who desire to have their, children educated ought never to be made, for without the nec¬ essary promptness in attendance nt school, and tho proper attention to study, good order in n school-room can¬ not be kept, nor progress in their stud- ies made. Bnt, even laboring tinder such difficulties, tho school has pros¬ pered, and tho advanced classes aro now 'well prepared to enter the junior class of a High School, which, it is to be hoped, the people of Tucson, in their present prosperity, will make arrange¬ ments for the building of such a nchool. It is an object upon which money can never be lost, and the investment would, as Professor Hall says, "give imtetns to the growth ot the city and enhance the value ot property, so from a strictly fi¬ nancial standpoint, the investment would be highly remunerative." The pamphlet embraces rules for teachers and also for pupils, as adopted by ths Board ot Trustees, together with tllo full course of study for the public schools of Tucson. The latter, to say the least is, as far as it goes, most thorough. Each different grade, from fonrth to first, ombracing all necessary branches for a sound basis upon which to build a higher education; dlso the list of text books usod and a valuable report from the Secretary of the Board, Mr. Geo. J. Roskrnge, for tho year end ing December 31, 1SS1. It is very minute iu its details giving the separate expenses of each month for the time named, and the purposes for which the money was applied. The recapitulation ie here given: Tca!her!s salaries for j the year 1831 Other expense for the year 1881." location notices. Bough, and iteaay mine m xrima Emerald. Old Hat district Jan 24. 310.

It lives upon the fuel fed to its engines, and it has a name, a personality and even a sex, lor with the miner as with the sailor in regard to his ship, the name is she. From her are born pro¬ ducts which enrich mankind. Only four months intervene before the election in Alabama, and yet no Conven¬ tion has been called to select a State tick¬ et. This delay doubtlessly results from he fact that the Democrats feel certain tf electing whatever candidates they may nominal', and that under this condition a long campaign is not necc$aiy.

Washington, D. G, April 5. The President's veto of tho Chinese bill was received at 1:20 r. si. and was read im mediately. The President said that after careful consideration he returned the bill with his objections. He held that it conflicted with treaty obligations and violated the faith of the nation, and hoped Congress wonU endeavor to find another that would meet tho expecta¬ tion of the people ot the United States and not conflict with the rights of China. In discussing the meaning of the word laborer as used in the treaty, the Presi¬ dent concedes that it is intended to include artesans and skilled laborers. In regard to the terms of snspensiou, he tions which its negotiation have lett on record ot the meaning: ot its language, leaves no doubt in my mind that neither of contracting parties in concluding tho treaty of 18S0 contemplated the passage of an net pro- rant prayed for, upon the filing in their says: "iho examination which 1 have " u..i:.i..vi-,i,. nf,h oadeoi tnotreaiy ana 01 me ueciara- OII1CC A UUIIU lit ui-uui -". - warrant destroyed, and the Clerk was or¬ dered to notify Mr. Lloyd to that effect.

There may be other sections ot tho country where this species ot labor may be ad¬ vantageously employed without inter¬ fering with laborers of our own race." Tbe passport system, he says, is fall ing into tlinuo in Europe, and beside, he maintains that experience has shown that passports are easily borrowoJ, or even forged. The message speaks of tho opening of China to the world's commerce as h iving enormously bene¬ fited the Pacific' slope, and deprecates a policy which would drive the oriental trade and commerce from the United States. It concludes: "While protection of our labor from Asiatic competition may justify this policy, it is wiser now to make a shorter experiment, with the view of maintaining permanently only such features as time and experience commend."

Senator Far¬ ley, in a conversation abont the present outlook, says judging from the tone of the veto message it will be very diffi- cient to frame any new bill that will be acceptable to tho President, and diffi¬ culty also arisen in view ot the advanced stage of the session, to get any bill through both bouses. Miller says that ho had learned on good authority that the message was written by Attorney General Browstor. Ho intends to try to frame a bill im¬ mediately to give ten years suspension of immigration, with such machinery to carry it into operation as will be odectiveand not be liable to any decided objection specified in the Presi dents message.

The resolutions on the Chinese question were as follows: 1. That the President's Teto of the Chinese Immigration bill is a public misfortune.

WAsniNOTON, April 7. The passage o the Army Appropriation bill with a com¬ pulsory retirement clause, by so large a majority ensures its passage by tho Senate. It is the most important legis¬ lation for the army since tho reognniza- tion in 1SC0. There will be 42 officers, nearly all above tho rank of Major, re¬ tired at once. A larger part will be from staff duty, but every regiment in lino will be offectedpire or less. Next year the compulsory retirements will be abont 20 nnd the following year about tho same. Sheridan docs not favor his exception, as he is only 55 years old, and has, therefore, an expectation of seven years in command of the army. Gen. Hancock is 53, and unless Sheridan dies. he can have no expectation of command¬ ing as General in Chief. Gen. Ingalls, just made Quartermaster General, will retire at once, as will Colonel Ekin t ot tho samo corps. Petitions signed by over 1200 officers havo been filed for presentation to the Senate aa soon as the bill comes up, asking for the reten¬ tion ot the compulsory retiremet clause. Democrat! Satisfied Washington, D. April 7. There will be no attempt to overrule the Pres¬ ident's veto ot the-.Chinese bill, and it is not at all probablo that any modified bill will be passed. Democratic members are entirely satisfied to let the onus of defeating tho anti-Chinese legislation rest npon the President and there are not enough Republicans favorable to tho ideas of tho vetoed bill to bring a new bill to a vote. General Rosecrans claims that tho veto assures the Democrats control of the next House. Opinions of tha Preu. Chicago, April 7.
