Fort Winoats, N. M., May 10th, 1804.
Dhah Mi.sEnt I loft Fort Whipplo on the
Uth April last in company with Col. 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
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

yond tho point tvhere he had previously gons,
tntendtng to go to the Colorado uhiqttKo and
iolect the bet ground for our train to bratek the
road, but the mules gave pot the first day, and
he aJbandonl tho idea of going in advance, be
yond a few miles each day. to r.hoose the ground
for the new track. 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

pelled us to travel directly north about eight
miles before wo found a crossing. The wa'ter

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.
