Wish he would make a visit to Prcscott. The Expres3 will return to Port Wingate on Friday, the 25th inst. Letters must bo left at the office of the Secretary of the Territory by 1 o'clock r. m. of that day. Mr. A. W.

Willing lectured on tho evening of the 15th instant in the Legislative building. He pictured Ari zona us the richest and rarest of lauds, and told of his explorations from the San Juan to, the Agua Frio. DimiNa tho sitting of the Legislature our sanctum was frequently visited by the Hon. Pat. H. Dunne, member of the Council from Tucson. Mr. D. is a printer of experience, and, as is usually the case with typos, a whole souied mau. On tho night of the 8th inst. a Soiree was given the members of the Legislature, in Hardy's new building. Considering the scarcity of the fair sex in Prcscott, the affair was quite a success. Nearly a dozen ladies were iu attendance and the dancing was kept up until after midnigbt when there was an excellent supper at Mr. Osborne's Judges Knapp and Brochus, of New Mexico, have been removed, and Judircs Hubbcll and Usher an- Marshal Cutler, of New Mexico, whose first wife polte(i in their stead.

Rogers, at Gray & Co.'s, has just received a large supply of goods, and has completed a tip top corral, aud supplied it with hay and grain. In fact Rogers has almost auy thing you may call for, and is one of our jolly good fellows. Give him a call Territory on getting rid of two worthless officials. Judge Hubbell has already arrived in New Mexico.aud will at once hold courts in Knapp's district. He was formerly an officer in New Mexico, aud is brother to our friend Santiago Hubbell, of Albuquerque. Distances.
