Chavez and train, and arrived at this Pot, on yesterday the 9th ltif-t. Wo pased over the now route or cut-off, which wo found entirely practicable. This route is well supplied with wood, water and gras3 ; it passes over a country much better adapted for agricultural purposes than that through which tho old road runs around by the San Francisco Mountain. I wa3 most agreeably disappointed in the character of this portion of our Territory. It will compare favorably with mountain districts in tho old btate3. .New Hampshire men and Vermonters would be glad to occupy and cultivate ranches scattered all along thiu new route. There are some moun tain passes which would require a comparatively small (expenditure of money, to render entirely practicable for trams going west. Woolseys pass, the first which we encountered, is a deep canon leading into tho valley of the Rio Verde, about foui miles from the river. This cafion though deep is not precipitous, as " Hell Canon'' e, on the old road, and a road can bo made to wind around the mountain, makiog the ascent gradual, so that loaded trains can travel over it with little difficulty, this pas i3 about eighteen miles from Woolsey'a ranch. The only other canon or pass worthy of note in this connection is Cedar pass, distant about thirty-five miles from the Colorado Chiquito, the ascent here can be made easy for the heaviest trains with little labor. These are the only canons on the entire route ... . . ti wuicn woom give irams going west any uouoie. A noiiedabki feature of this ctit-ott is that the road over which we panned is generally ascend ing and most difScolt Koinir fe&t Trams raturn- m to the State are generally unloaded, and therefore can pans over the most, parte of the road more easily. The money said to bve been ex pend wl bv Blo on the old road, honestly end faithfully laid oot oa t&e new. would make it much the boat, leaving out of view the shortened iatonco. The valley surrounding Lake Carleton is beau- iful and picturesque, a number of ranches can be made in thia vicinity ; in fact a3 far as the eye could reach, this valley seemed to extend in a southerly direction, affording an agricultural re gion aufhcientlv extensive for a large colony to settle on. as soon as General Carleton success- uilv carries into execution, bis General order No. 12. nnd the Anaches are driven oat Luke Carleton is in form or shape an elipse, its diraen Mons about three-fourths of a mile by ono half mile, abounding in duck and fish :I had no oppor tunity of ascertaining the present depth of water the water marks indicate a rise of from three to bur feet. The bluffs surround the lako in the orm of an amphitheatre, rising to the highth of about seventy-five feet. This little inland sea is about thirty miles east of the Rio Verde. If it was about thirty miles west of that stream, would greatly favor it as tho place for calling the first Legislature of Arizona together. The time consumed in passing over this new route, and reaching this Post woe much greater than was expected, from two causes : first, the broken down stock of the traipt second, after wc had, us we supposed, entered the valley of the Colorado Lhiaut? and nothing in the way to im pede our further progress, v struwc an invisi ble cafion, about one hundred and fifty feet deep and two hundred feet wide, with perpendicular MINER'S HOUSE, Will bo re-opened July 15th.

Although his unwearied efforts were not crowned with complete success, which they deserved, yet the practicability of a good wagon road, on or near the route over which we passed, has been demonstrated, saving from seventy to ninety mile3 distunce. The season east of the Verde was more ad vanced than at Lort Whipple. The ground was covered with an almost infinite variety of flower3 in full bloom. The cacti, in great variety, was also in full bloom, some of which are very beau tiful, ihe grass was greener and thicker on tho ground than at your Post, or than we found after crossing tho Colorado Chiquito. The greatest distance we travelled without water was from Cedar gap to the Colorado, about thirty-nvo miles in.a direct line, i his region is the most sandy ,dry and barren of the entire route, yet there are portions of it covered with dense forests ot cedar. J he water we found at Cedar gap wo named Cedar tank. It appeared to be as permaaent as tne water at Oonino Caves on the old load, being similar in all respects. I he scenery on this route in many places, 18 grand and impressing, the bluffs presenting almost every hue and color and form and shape, from the most shapeless to the most perfect symmetry far exceeding anything I observed on the AVhip pie road. This Post fully sustains ) ts wdl earned reputa tion for wind and dost Its precise locality was very definitely fixed, far in the di-tance, as wo approached, by the clouds of da. t rising and sweeping over tho valley with its wontru fury. At Agua rn& we bad a snovy. storm on the 9tlt tnst. that would have ookc no dtscroait to December, making very appurent the truth that December may be as pleasant as May, a3 the old hymn goes. Sitting by the fire the last ten days ias not been, an uncomfortable position. I am under many obligations to Col. Chavez or his uuiform couite?y and kindness on the route, nd the facilities which he has kindly afforded me by which I am enabled to reach Santa Fc in ime to take the next etage to the btates. 11 is unpretentious manner and gentlemanly bearing in his intercourse w-ith tho common soldier and other government employees, make him popular wtlh oil, and 1 believe there are none who would not rejoice to har of his promotion to the rank, , the title of which is now so universally accorded nm. I take this opportunity al30 to tender my thanks to Major Chacon, who has been recently iromoted, Capt, bhaw, and the other officers of .his Post, for their kindness and hospitality ex tended to mo during my brief stay here. W. F. T. walls of natural masonry. This obstacle com pelled us to travel directly north about eight miles before wo found a crossing. The wa'ter question became one of most nbsorbing interes to man and beast, and reudeied it necessary to stnko lor tho river at the nearest point, wmeh brought ub out a few miles abpve where we left that stream last winter, instead of at the place where tho Whipplo road first touches it going wost. But for this cafion, wo would have reached tho little Colorado si or near the cross ing. The general course wo travelled was north east, which direction Col. Chavez was induced to fol low from a red dotted line in Floyd's Map, and from another reason, lie is now convinced, as am also, that a more easterly course must be x..l i ' i I f . t . x. t . . . LHKcn irom me suiriing,poiui,,uior near tno mines, to corao out. at the point whoro the Whipplo road first strikes the Colorado Chiquito and to save tho greatest distance. I am of tho opinion, from what I observed of tho country south-easterly o the line over which wo passed, that a better road will bo found by taking a more ' easterly course from tho starting point, and tho distance greatly shortened. . :. . 4 uoi. Chavez labored inuefatlgabJy to mako tnta now route a success. pKKVisn Men. Peevish men are always un just, always exacting, always dissatisfied. They claim everything of others, and their best cfibrta are received wiih petulance and disdain. Such men, too, complain of being ill-treated by their fellows. Ill treated 1 the mildness of on angel and tho patience of a saint could not treat these sour-tempered people in a manner that could atisfy them. Ihe habit of peevishness grows upon a person until it rendera him wholly inca pable of conferring happiness upon others, it distorts the imagination, and disorders the mind so that truth cannot be distinguished from falsehood, or friendship from enmity. It is tho one great source of envy and discontent, poisoning the fountain of life nnd scattering rum and deso lation on overy side. Those who occupy their minds about anything serviceable; to those who are around them are seldom peevish. It is only those who teed a disordered fancy with self-gen-erated fiction that become misanthropic or grumblers. Then incessant fault-finding arises, which is as annoying as it is unjust. Did peevish people know, or could they 'eel, tho effect of their reproaches on others, those reproachos would never have been made. But the possessor of a peevish turn of mind thinks of nothing hut himoolf. For others he cares nothing, and while he claims the greatest 'deference for himself, he will not defer to others in the slighost dogreo. Those who find themselves affected by peevishness should banish the feeling at ones, for while it continues they are totally unfit for anything.
