THE ARIZONA MINER.
WEDNESDAY JULY to, 18C4. The Fourth of July wa3 celebrated at La Par. Judge AUyn delivered nn oratiou. Oapt. Paulinb Wkavbu and Mr. Prank TMnkley arrived here to day from Weaver. We have Been butonc copy of the tfew Mexlcfin,(San ta Ke.) since the Minbp waa started, although we have Bent our paper regularly. Will the publisher take the hint? We should be glad of back numbers. Clayton Ralstin, Eq a young lawyer from Illi nois, arrived here with the ColoradiauB, and will open an ofllce at an early day. Dr. Clutter, late of the ar my. who accompanied him here, will also open an office. A ILtS bear that la tely a Mexican fitrackarich deposit off bjll aide, op Lynx Creek, near the trail from Granite Crce.., whence, by dry washing, he took forty ounces of gold In apingle day. That will do. Messrs. Warn: & Noves have their steam grist mill in full operation at Pimo and aro turning out large quantities of excellent flour, some of which has already found its way here, aud more is called for. Attention is directed to the advertisement of these en. terpriBlng gentlemen. Our Mines The Argus, a mining journal, published at Sau Francisco, speaks thus of our mines : The mines of Arizona are becoming a recognized feature. Their abundance and their uneqiiu'cd richness Burpttss the most sunguiue expectations of all compe tent judges. Tub weather is not uncomfortably warm. The fre quent Bhowers indicate the approach of the rainy sea son. The nights are cool and exceedingly agreeable. (There are few places in the Atiautlc States where the inonth of July 's so pleasant.

Wonder if the promotion was In view of the General's good nmn agemcnt 01 the New Mexican battles? Town Map. Mr. A. P. Waldernar, formerly of Los AngelcH, who has been Borafe time inPrcscott prepar ing a map of the town, m laid out by the Commission ers, has completed his work in a most artistic and pcriect manner The map will be sent to San Francis co for the purpose of lithographing, that each pur chaser of lot may have a copy for filing with his deed. We are pleased to learn that Mr. Waldemar will remaiu atPrcscott, and open a surveying aud civil engineer's office In connection with our esteemed fellow citizen, Hon. Robert W. Groom, member of the Conucil, elect. Wb have seen Capt. Benson's report of the scout in Apacharia, which he lately made with his command, leaving Fort Whipple on the 6th of June, and return ing on the 1st of July. It is a well prepared and in teresting document. Much country was travelled, several Apaches were killed, and the troops occupied a number of days in destroying crops. The Captain speaks thus of tho Big Rump region : It is rather 'an anomaly to call it a valley. It is in fact nothlnij more than a succession of low mountains. broken hills, ridges and ravines, without order or system. Express to La pAZ.-Robertson k Co., formerly of Lynx Creek, have started a semi-monthly Express to La Paz, to connect with Mr. Grant's express from there to Los Angeles. By this accommodation our citizens may send letters and parcels to La Paz in five days, and to Los Angeles In ten days. We wish the enterprise all success, and shall hope to receive news from the States by it quicker than by any other means of communication. If the proper connections are made we should have Sau Francisco papers in thirteen days from the date of publication. Tub .sketch of Ex-Gov. Gilpin of Colorado, on our Orst page, muy appropriately beuiu the series of " Lives of Mouutain Men " proposed some time since. It was written for an earlier rumber of the Miner, but has been dela3'ed by a pressure of matter. Mr. Gilpin is, we are pleased to notice, still devoting himself to the unbuilding ef Colorado, uuu judging from the sentiment of the numerous Coloradiaus now in Prcscott, there li no little regret on the part of the people of that Territory, that he is not its representa tive at Wahhingtou rather than Mr. Bennett, whose ex traordinary conduct in reference to taxing the mines has excited universal indignation in the Wet. Rumor hath it thnt Colorado will make Mr Gilpin one of her first Senators The selection would reflect great cred it npon the State. Charles A. Phillips, Esq, was admitted to tho Arizona bar at the recent terra of the United Statot District Court in La Paz.

Our fnendo abroad will bo glad to kuow all tho fuoto touuliini; our new und bopfi!l town Lot ua begin by haying that the name was pre ferred to Audubon and Grunito City, which had hmn proposed , because of tho Aztec ineinorials everywhere existing in this region, and confirming the conclusions of tho great American historian. Prescott, as to its former occupation. An es teemed correspondent of the Mi.vkk, from whom wa havu several valuable historical commuuica- tions in reserve had suggesteu that the capital of tho Territory should bo Aztlun. Without ex pressing un opimou as to whether Prcscott is, or is not, to oe mo capital, we turns tho name preferable, thongh Aztlun would havo been a very proper designation Tor tho Territory, fur moio uusy to interpret ano more appropriate, than Arizona. Moreover tho compliment to tho memory of thu illustrious rrescott is well deserved. To hire ability us a writer and historian, he added all the qualities which enuobles man. Me wns a good citizen, a true patriot, and an honor to a most rnimluble uncetstry. His biography, lately published in Boston, and a copy of which wo hope to recoivo at an early du7. abonuds in in teres ting incidents illtistiative of his genius, his industry, his perseverance under difficulties, in cluding the blindness of his later years, his purity , ...... I. .1! I. I I I ami nmiuuiuiy ui cuurucier, niiu ins love 01 coun try,5 which should make us proud to havo his name associated with a seltloment for which wo have faith to believe there is to bo a prosperous luture. Tho town may wo soon say tho citv of Prescott, is located at a point near to the inter section of the 34 of latitude, with tho 112" of longitude. So lately ha3 this region been opened tliut the existing maps of tho Territory havo it only in blank. Tho spot chosen and sin vnynd for tho town embraces a beautiful mesa of two quarter sections of land upon Granite Creek, running with the same for a mile. Tho streets all run with the cardinal points of the compass, and are nn hun dred feet wide. Tho squares aro each 325 x 600 feet including an alley of 25 feet runuing length wise. The lots, saving thosa facing the plaza, re 50 x 150 feet. Thosa npon tho plBjw, which is composed of an ontire souare. nro 2RxMR feet on tho north and south, nnd 25 jc 1 50 feet on tho east and west sides. Tho land reserved for the public buildings, should the Legislature be convened hero, is an entiro souare. aitimtnd nn the highest point, from which a m-and view of it. - w . lue surrounuing couutry can bo had. Th r square is dirctly connected with tho plaza by a street called Union Street, which is an hundred reel wide, and runs through the centre of the only intervening square. From the oublic nark a street called Liberty Street, (same widths runs through the first square, in tho opposite direction, tliu3 opening the public grounds to access and view from every quarter. The other streets of the town aro named either after persons identified with the former or present history or this part of tho Territory 'th us those running north and south, after Gramto Street, which is upon tho east bank of Granito Creek. are called, Montezuma, Cortez, Marina, Alarcon, Coronado, and Whipple, while thosa running east and west are known as Sheldon, Willis, Gurley, Goodwin, Carleton, Aubry, Leronx, Waikor, and Lont streets. Much of the site is covered with fine pine3, cedars, and live oaks, which will, in all cases where they do not inter fere with buildins. ba left undisturbed. The plaza aud public square could not bo so well shaded in twenty years by planting. Although me oea 01 uramte ;rek is dry at many points, there is at all seasons more or les3 of running water, and by digging from one to three fr et water is everywhere to bo had, and of a superior quali ty. The recent success in weil-digging at Fort Whipple, leads to the belief that water can be had anywhere upon the town site, though the mesa is qnue nigu. it 13 proposed to have a well in each corner of the nlaza. Tho hure flacr- sUfj in tho centre,n description of which has been' ijiven, is one 01 tne uuest sucks ol tho kind. we have ever seen. The law under which the town sito was se lected, and the lots have been disposed of, is a3 follows : Ax AcTroE Incekasino the Revenue by Reser vation axo Sale or Towx Sites on Pdbmc Lands. Be it enacted by the Sei ate and Houbc of Renresen- tatives of tho United States of America in Conercstf assembled, That it shall be tho duty of the President of the United States to reserve from the public lands, whether surveyed or unsurveyed. town sites on the shores of harbors, at the junction of rivers, important poruges, or any natural or prospective centres of population Sec. 2.
