The health of this place is itnproriog some,

Times hore arc imHxiving. The merchants
are all busy, receiving and storing goods for
the winter season. Harnett intends moving
into his new and spacious building in a few
days, with a large stock of new goods just
received from California. Frank 1'ouget, our
noisy butcher, has got liack from California,
with more fat beef cattle. Everything about
the Vulture mine and mill is as usual lively
nnd prosperous. Tho Vulturo is "capital"
that greenbacks don't nflect ; neithor does it
require a voto to mako it stick, nor gass to

such capital around I'rescott. As for that

Murder of a Maricopa Indian.
Tin? following letter was furnished to the

iart- r "anient of California:

( nmP McDowell, A. f ., Oct. U, lSGi
Colonel I have the honor to inform you
that on the 20th of September a Maricopa
Indian, generally known as Coyote, was mur-
derod and robbed at Gila Bend, in this Dls-
trict. The .vsriBein is upKied to be a young
nan by the naino of Samuel Edniundson, and
' said to Jiavo Hud an accomplice named
is said to havo had an accomplice named A.
Farrell. These flien In-longed to a jiarty of
emigrants travelling from Texas to Califor
nia. Information of the murder was sent to
me by Captain Whipple, Thirty -second In
fantry, who was at (iila Itend at the time,
with a detachment of recruits. I furnished
a description of the two men, as given by
Captain Whipple, to Colon?! Itnggles, the
Indian Agent si the I'ima Villages. Captain
W. was unable to arrest the men, but for
warded a description of tbetn to the com
manding oiilcer at Fort Yuma.
The Maricopa Indians wre very much ex
cited, as the murdered man was a prominent
member of their tribe, but were sati-lied that
all possible exertion would be made by the
military authorities to caiiture the offenders.
Rdinundson is described as about 23 years

i m a
tare upon toe wnuea; we know at no cause
sutBciently grod to justify the villainous eon -
duet of that iufernal tribe, and all this non-
senaical twaddle about the whites bringing
on Indian wars is bbeer nonsense. We are
snrprised to see a jiaper printed on this coast
join in with tbc sickly sontimestoliiit of tbe
Bast, and grieve over the fancied wrongs of
the "noble rod man." The All ought to
know Indian nature better than it doe. It
" takes on'' more about the killing of this
Indian than it ha ever done over the murder
of a white man by Indiana, which U, almost,
an every day occurrence in th'w .Territory.
We think it represents "the other side of
the question" fully as well as an Indian
newspaper or politician could do il.
Our people have always treated their wcll
dispceed red brethren with groat kindness,
and havo not "clamored for extermination
and slaughter for all Indian-kind," They
desire the death of none of tbem, aave and
except those of them who thirst for our
blood, and who never allow a good chance to
kill a white man escape them.

but our creditors do, and thoy, no doubt, owe

Removal of the Capital.
The liOs ngelcs lUpuMican, of October
21, draws the following truthful and cor
rect pen lectures of I'rescott and vicinity,
and Tinwon and vMnity :
Governor JlrCoi mick has approved a bill,
) tossed by the Territorial legislature, remov
ing the seat of govermcut from I'fescott to
Tucson. What good reasons he can aasigii to
the people for so dolmr, wo cannot conceive;
geographically I'rescott i a near jkmsIWu
in the center of the Territory, whilst Tucson
is in the extreme southern jiortion, near the
line of Mexico; aside from tho location, the
preponderance of population is and always
will he north of the Gila; Central Arizona
leing umlotibtedly a rich mining country;
abounding with fertile valleys, which but for
the depredations of the Ajiacbes, would he
teeming with population ; a a grazing coun
try, It is universally conceded to be excellent.
I'rescott, a well built and thriving town, with
a salubrious climate, is beautifully situated,
in a well watered and timbered country;
surrounded by thoe famed mining di'tricu,
which are slowly but surclv attracting ikkmh
! 1st ion and capital ; whilst Tucson, Mirrmmd
I ed as it is, by an almost absolute desert,
; without either timber or water except at
' rare intervals, with a climate notorknislr un-
healthy, a large portion of the year, is simply
a collection of mud house, bttilt up without
. regard to any known system, ami with oste
i or two exceutiona, the streets ate mere jaek
J a.s trails, it, nor the country around, aflbnl
no such '.nuncements Tor immigratioM or tmym
tal. ao does I'rescott and Central Ariaom;
benoe the action of the Governor appears
iaeotflprefcensiuJe.
