the present year, three several expeditions,
composed of citizen volunteers, who, like their

and up to this time have been entirely unrec-
ompensed thcretor, and
Whereas, Those expeditions have been highly
beneficial to tho people, not only by taking the
lives of numbers of Apaches, and destroving
the property and crop3 in their country, but
also by adding largely to the ceoirrnnhical. zo
