The following as a summary of the Proceedings of the Legisla ture un to the 17th instant. We only give that which is of imme cliale interest to the readers of the SENTINEL. COUNCIL, Mr, Dorrington gave notice that he would intioduce at an early day an act to amend chapter 16 compiled laws, enti lied these "of the Territorial prison," as well and together with an act amenda tory of said chapter and supplemental thoteto, approved February 7, 1877. Also that he had appointed Samuel Goldwater as clerk of committee on corporations. An act to exempt from taxation grow. ing crops, passed, The passage of the bill prohibiting the use of obscene or.abusive language was recommended and passed An act to amend section sixty-three, chapter ten of the compiled laws, was reported back from the committee that it do pass as amended. On motion of Dorrington, amendment was adopted, and bill passed On motion of Mr. Dorrington, House memorial number four was adopted as amended. An act to establish an insane asylum read first time, and bill referred to Committee on Territorial Affairs An act to amend certain scctious of an act to regulate appeals from justices, courts, read first time On notion of Mr. Dorrington the bill was returnsd to the house for proper endorsement. Mr. Dorrington introduced memorial asking Congress for an appropriation of $100,000 for the improvement of the Colo- ralo river, which was passed R. L. Long, was continued by a unani. j mous vote, Territorial Superintendent of Public Schools. Mr. Dorrington and Mr. Stephens were appointed a Committee to confer on House Bill No. 30. Message from House that memorial number five, asking the Durchase from Mexico of certain territory for seaport purposes, passci. noosE. The Judiciary .Committee reported as follows: Bill to give to the several judges of .the judicial districts certain powers when sitting in chambers, any-where with in their respectire judicial .districts, do pass. An act authorizing the construction and maintainanca of a certain railroad and telegraph line, had been amended and reoommend that as amended the bill do pass. Mr. Frame gave notice that ho would introduce a bill regulating the conduct of the Territorial Prison. Memorial asking the purchase from Mexioa of certain territory for seaport purposes, paseed. Committee on Public Expenditures re ported favorably on the bill to appro, priate $3,650 to carry on and properly conduct the exhibit of Arizona at the World's Exposition, from Jau. I5th to May, 31, 1835, the close of the same. Said set also coratemplates the payment to Yuma county the sum of $1500 contribu ted in county warrants to it's commis sioner, J. J. Stein, for said territorial exhibit which warrant brought in cash $825,00. As an evidence that Yuma is one of the healthiest places In the Territory, we havesimply to cite the fact that since the Penitentiary has been located here, now nearly nine years, but nine convicts have died of natural death, and most of these were ailing, when brou ght here withsome chronio trouble, and three by aicidents. Is not this a good showing? The following is a list of those dead: John Brooks, Peter Devaux, Da niel Moran, Alejindro, Samuel Jacobs John Fleming, Juan Rulbal, Santos Mo rales, John FIoyd,Guadalupe Domlnguez, Thomas Alvarez, and an American whose name we were unable to learn. Brooks and Fleming were killed by rocks and dirt caving in upon them while excavat. ing for the present prison grouds. The American died from the effects of injuries received by jumping out of the cars, for the purpose of escaping, while he was being brough to the Prison. We are iaformed by the Physician in charge, that the health of the prisoners is now gene- rally good, and that all hands are eng duty about the grouds. There were probably a dozen people to hear the temperance lecture at the Court House a week ago last Wednesday. The lecturer, C. N. Goulding, thought his audience too small, and not wishing to waste his "breff" on so few of the "moral'' people of Yuma, adjournod the meeting and promised to come baok again atsome future time. Among his strongest pil lars in town were Brothers Tyner, Thur low, Esselburn Scott, Fitch, Bansroft, and other advocates of temperance in Yuma. Lijah Bettls was also present and pas sod the hat around for a collection. "El Mercurio," published at Phoenix, which suspended temperanly a few weeks ago, is again a welcome weekly visitor to our sanctum. It is now published half in English and half in Spanish, which im provement makes the paper much mtre acceptable to the sensral reader. ISemorial. Following is a copy of Council Mormorial No. 3, introduced by Hon. J. W. Dorrington, on the 12lh instant, to improve the nnvi gation of the Colorado river. The same passed the Council and one hundred copies ordered printed To the Honorable thr 8knatb and House of Representatives in Con GREsa Assembled: The Legislature of the Territory of Ari zona respectfully represent that Whebeas, The Colorado Rivsr is a portion of the boundary line between the United States and Mexico, and its nsvi gation in case of what would bo of para mount importance in the protection of our Territory and our people; and Whurbis, It is now navigable to the Junction of the Yirgin and Colorado River at Rioville during the highest stages of Water; and Whereas, Atroportionately Email out. lay asked by your petitioners, said Colo rado Rirer could be made, by the removal of obstructions, nayigable during all soa sens of the yeai for light tonnage cralt or ail kinds to a point thirty miles above Rioville, which can be verifled by any practical and unprejudiced engineer, and Whereas, There are on both sides Of said river mines of gold, silver, copper and other valuable metals, and in the interior large tracts of agricultural and grazing land along the course of said stream between the points above named which are now sparsely settled and un productive, owing to the cost and dif ficulties of transportation and which would become valuable land if said stream were made navigable; and Whereis, The principal obstructions to the navigation of said stream lie bet ween a point thirty miles above Rioville and Fort tfums, and consists principally of rocks and drifts and sand-bars, which could be easily removed without any great expense as measured by the benefit to be derived; therefore, belt Resolved, That our Delegate to Con- gress be requested to use every honorable effort to secure from the general govern ment an appropriation of one hundred thousand ($100,000), dollars, to he used in improving the navigation of the Colorado River between Fort Yumaand apomtthlr ty miles above Rioville.the junction of the Virgin and Colorado Rivers, under th'" proper management of competent engt neers, for the purpose of making said stream permanently navigable between tlie points above named. Resolved, That his Excellency, the Gov ernor of the Territory of Arizona, be re quested to forward a cop? of this resolu. tion to the Honorable the Secretary of the Interior, and our Delegate in Con- ress, asking their hearty support and earnest co-operation in obtaining said appropriation. A Pleasant Evening. It has become proverbial far and near that Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Lyous, whose maguificient resilience is on the corner of Third street and Madison Avanue, arc the most hospitable and sociable people in Yuma. They are both fond of com pany, and their happiest hour is when they are entertaining their friends. Their latch string" is always out, and he who pulls it, is welcomed and treated in a cor dial way. As an instance ot our host and hosters' great hospitality, the entertain ment given by them last Saturday even- may be mentioned. It was in this way: Messrs. Levillier and Nathan, two noted French) musicians, who happened to stop-over in Yuma, on their way to New Orleans, to attend the Exposition were prevailed upon by Mr. Lyons to spend that evening at his bouse and bold musical soiree. Mr. Lyons invited a number of his friends to listen to the music and a more enjoyable time was never had in Yuma. The music began early in the evening, and after Messrs. Levillier and Nathan had performod sev. eral overtures, sonatas and selections from tho several operas on the piano and flageolet, the company present concluded to end the evening's entertainment with a bop." This they did paying homage to the Muses Euterpe and Terpsichore until midnight whan the company dis persed. Only a partial list of tho3e pre- sont is given Delow, for the reason that e couli not obtain all the names: Youug Ladies C. Baker, Isabel Vail, Constaricia Williams, Jesusita Martinez, Carolina ferry, Candelaria Martinez, Mary E, rost, Mamie Dibson, Dolores Arila, Bruna Rivera, Ira Kennedy, Ladies Mrs, Baker, Mrs. H. Godfrer. Mrs. J. H Godfrey, Mrs, G. W. Norton, Mrs. W. H. Aonge, Mr. S. Purdy, Mrs, R. Furrer, .Mrs. C. Naylor, Mrs. B. Martinez, Mrs B, Fitch, Mrs. Muzzy. Mrs. G. M. Thur- iow, airs. A. Tyner.

It seems to us that if the vagrant act was enforcbd in Yuma lnat a nnmber of idlers now In town would have to swear that they obtained their daily frijoles and chile Colorado in an honest way, or else gotoTyner's Hotel for a few days, or until they could get something to do, and mako an honest living, Hon. J. W. Dorrinton. We find the following In the "Tucson Star" of a recent date. It is all about Hon. J. W. Dorrington, of the Council rrom this county: Hon. J. W. Dorring- ton, of Yuma County, is a native of New York, thirty-eight years of age, a bach elor, and one of the best knows members of cither House, haying been in public lifo eyer since his advent into the Terri, tory. He is a journalist by profession and at present editor and proprietor of the Yuma Sentinel. Like his colleague FurHy In the Lower Houss, he holds the ntteof his county in his best pocket This is his fourth term of legislative ser. vice, beiog throe terms in the Council and one in the House. A Republican in politics, but elected as an Independent, he quietly watches the issues in the Coun cil on matters of political Import, and when his party is assailed hiB com batlve nature asserts itself in a forcible manner. Like all men of positive opinion, he has enemies, but socially he is clever considerato and obliging. He is one of those unimponetrable characters, whose rlghtnand would" never know what his left comsumated; alert to all matters of personal interest, and a tough nut for an intcrviewe. to crack. It is said his sympathies are with the Southern Pacific Railroad on matters of legislation, and from the fact of his having no opponent in the late election, it is but fair to credit him with tho fact that Yuma County is favorable towards that poor, down-trod- den corporation. Troop E and M. Fourth Cavalry, station. ed at the Fort, has raised $145 to pur chase a gold watch and chain to be pre sented to Mrs. F. S. Ingalls in apprecia tion of her efforts and kindness in treating the soldiers to a sumptuous supper on Sunday, the 25th ultimo. Troop M, we understand will, also, show its apprecia tion in a substantial way, but how depo nent saith not We are sure that the citizens, who furnished the cash to buy the grub, will not iuterpose an objection nor care what the soldiers do. The pre sent propossd will be worthily bestowed. lEOIES- F'J&JOSS'm CURES Rheumalism.Heuralgia, Sciatica, Lumbago, Backache, Headache, loomacne, Bar Tbrrnit. Swelling. Sprnlnn, BrvUe.
