There are two classes of pooplo in the world-directly tho opposite of each other. The one is a natural enthusiast, always looking at the rosy side of affairs, and whatever ho un dertakes, ho puts his whole soul into it and goes it with a rush. He never owned a horse, no matter how heavy and broken, foundered and spavined he may, be hut "he's the dogondest, best horse he ever saw," muoh less owned. If ho discovers a prospect "there's millions in it,V oven from the grass roots. Every cloud tojiim, no matter how gloomy and lowering, has a silver lining. Tho optimist is the positive element in soctety that causes the wheels of commerce and mainsprings of business to movo with accelerated speed. He may make mistakes, may be overcome with dis aster for a period, but his naturally. buoyant temperament causes him to rise and float with the tide where an other man would sink to the bottom like a stone'. The pessimist is -his opposite in everything. " Thoro is no hi tg so good to-day as there wai yesterday. He altvays looks at' the dark side of matters. If ho owns a horse, no matter how good he may be, ho lives in momentary fear that tho "blamed critter" is going to havetho glanders, or he's got corns in his foct,,or the "hots '11 carry him off as sooii as fly time comes:" If ho examines a mine, it's of little or no account, " it don't compare with the Comstook,1' and '-there'll never bo another Corn stock Another Washoe." Thero are no silver-lined clouds for him; he's a "practical man," ho is, "no damned nonsense in his'n." With his in verted vision he looks at the sun, moon and stars, and they are infinite ly removed into space, or if ho turns earthward, by the same inverted sight ho sees.ihe bottom falling out of everything, and particularly the mines in a locality where ho is desirous of bearirg them. How many ot these pessimists havo knocked the bottom out of Tomb stone's mines our readers wnll know. These thoughts wero induced by the reports of different parties re turning of late from Sonora. One, a gentleman who has known tho Coin stock fiom the grass roots to tho low est levels, and who has stood high in the councils of the nation, is reported to have said that millions will be sunk in Sonora, with little or no re turns. The other, a practical sort of a fellow, who ha always been an avaut-courier of civilisation, says that So'iora will a touih tho wo: Id with her yield of precious metals; that tli-i surface has not been scratched by the superficial and in efficient system of workings by the Mexicans. Ho points to. what the St. Helena company is doing, the Shugarts and the Santa Maria, where immense bodies of rich rich in the full sense of the term oro is re warding these companies for their toil in reopening the once aban doned mines of tho haughty dons of u past age. Tho truth of this matter, as of others, will, no doubt, bo found in tho mean between tho two extremes. That there will be wastod capital in Sonora, as there has been in Califor nia, Nevada, I laho, Montana, Color ado and Arizona, t ere is every reason to he li v, and that millions will be realized n j dicious invest ments is equally apparent. Besides this, and of more nrnncnt to the world will bo tho infusion of new b'i d i n I i ot 1 fo i oh country sta nat d by i u'a on and ho pov erty of its people. Cioso upon tb. h els of mining will follow other in dustries, the Ituilditig up of agricul ture and manufactures', i which will solidify a social and 'political struc ture that vyill make northern:, Mexico homogeneous with her sister states on this side the line. The sun will enter Aries at noon, Washington time, of the 20th, and Spring commences. On tho evening of tho 22d Jupitor and the new' moon will only bo separated about two de grees, and' will present a pleasing spectacle. If the evening is clear it will bo a particularly beautiful sight frdm this altitude. The recent' action of tho Mayor of Philadelphia in discharging the en tire forco of detectives has created a great consternation among the "crooks" of tho Quaker City, who will now bo compelled to carry on business without tho valuable aid and experience of their late partners. Mr. Kkknk is said to have largely covered his shorts in LakoJShore, and to have expressed the wish in a hearty manner tlmt, " 13y Gad ! " thoro must bo no failures in the street, and that whatever his former differences with Mr. Gould ho now admires his pluck an 1 energy and en terprise, and that ho would be the List mm to seek to cripple him. Now York Daily Stockholder. Judging from the long list of mar ketable bipeds who advertise them selves in tho Matrimonial Times, Exeter, N. H., wo infer that tho matrimonial market, East, is rather flat. Wo insert, without charge, the following for the benefit of the dis consolate of Tombstone: A Lady living in Ntw England, tall, good-looking, educated and re fined, will correspond with a middle aged gentleman, not over fifty, of good moral clurecter and standing, with a good paying business. , i ; The peihelion business is not over with yet. Uranus, one of our sister worlds, although not a near neighbor, its nearest approach to the sun, which will he reached, on the 25th instant,'' being 1,627,000,000 miles, is li ible to kick up a little turmoil of its own within the molten regions of the sun. In forty years it wi 1 havo receded to its greatest distance, which will bo 1,835,700,000 miles, an increase of 208,700,000 miles. Great as these distances appear they are as nothing compared to those of tho more re mote of the fixed stars which can only be comprehended by the years of time it takes their light to wing its way through space and reach this world. The Wood Biver News of Febru ary 22 says: Thursday evening a snow-slide ocourred on the Strahorn claims, on Bald Mountains, in tho outskirts of P.alley, which cleaned tho ground to tho bedrock, and tlammed up tho river to the height of fifty feet, turning tho water into the surrounding sloughs. Superintend ent Burgess ran to the tunnel and called the men out, but although this did not require threo minutes, they could not escape to town, and, hastily placing all their provisions on the tipper hunks of their cabin, cut a hole through tho roof, built a fire there and remained there, overnight, with their cat and dog, and until about 11 o'clock the next morning, when, the river having broken through the snow-slide, the water receded to the channel. Welcome to ov. Trltle. From the 1'n.icott Courier, March 13. The great hall of tho Yavapai county court house was last Saturday evening filled with ladies and gen tlemen of Prescott and vicinity, all assembled to honor with their'pres euce the chief ruler of the territory, F. A. Tritle, who, despite all oppo sition from other candidates and their friends, is now firmly fixed in the gubernatorial chair. Previous to 8 o'clock p. in. tho excellent Twelfth Infantry band from Whipple, took position on the south porch, or bal cony, of the court house and filled the town with good music. Ladies and their escorts came from north, south, east and west, ascended the long and winding staircase and took p isition on the south of the Judge's bench. The committees wore seated on the north side; the bund, where lawyers are wont to argue that black is white; last but not least tho great people filled the immense hall. May or William F. lvelley graced tho chair; b side him sat lion. C C. Bean. Tho meeting having been called to orderj tho new governor was soon after escorted to it seat of honor, while tho people gavo him round after round of aesthetic ap plause. After tho band had "Hailed tho Chief," Mr. Bean arose and delivered the address of wel como in a calm, clear, earnest and impressive manner. At its close, Gov. ritle made his bow and speech, both of which woro in excellent taste. Mr. Buan's address went 'back to and took in our earlier governors, traced tho history of tho territory during the dark and bloody era, and threw tho electric light on tho pro gress niado since " the war." Those who listened attentively to all he'said and believed in all save that portiott relating to Gov. Fremont's course, were sorry to havo 1 1 disagree with I his ideas, as expressed concerning tho Pat finder. Gov. Fremont has not, in ail Aruuna, a truer personal i friend than tho writer' of this, but .blamed if wo forget tho governor's fiSPHi cott soon forgeSor forgive the jugrat itudo so plainly displayed by Fre .inont. Gov. Tritr; we may say," brought down tho houseiy lie is a man of omo 42 or 43 years of age, a good looking, plain, unvarnished Weitern man, a pioneer, a miner, and withal a' wry good speaker. Wit and "wis dom oropped out'of overy word ut tered by him, and when alluding to Mr. Bean's pledge that his adminis tration would ' ot bo p rtisitn, wo be lieved ho meant what he said. He acknowledged a love for a territory in tho southern portion of- which one could sleep, out of doors without much covering, while here in the. noith he found tlmt living was en tirely free. He likes Presoott and her people, hut would like our cli mate batter if wo could get up such blows us1 ho was used to in Virginia, Nevada, where he formerly resided. Ilcecher In Hell, When 1 was in Pars I went to hell. 1 hud heard before I went there of the Jardiu Mabillc, a place where courtesans resort, and where, strangers from places far away go and look at them. 1 went there and saw men that I understood were paid by the government of tho plact to conduct the frolics for the people, and if ever I saw hell in the lorm of lust it was in the faces of those men. Meti past all shame were there, tluf embodied personifications of lust; ol all that was corrupt or corrupting, and as 1 looked I said, Can it be that such men can bo forgiven? I think not. l'hoy are gone too far, for t.he unpardonable sin is not an act, it is a state that permits ot no recovery. Nuw, there is a class of men culled "lobbyists." I am told that there an; very good men umong them; 1 know th it theie are some not as good, and some not good at all. Where a man has come to that state that he does not believo there is anything in pat riotism, that thero is auvthiug sacred in law; where he comes to feel thai bribing men is not wrong, and that it makes no difference how you bribe hem; when a man takes all that civ ilization has left behind, all that law tramples under foot, all that manhood disdains, and 'uses them uud plays with them, he hits lost all sense of corruption, all sense of shame. Do you suppose that such a man could come home and make a deacon in a church except for hypocrisy? No, he is gone, gone, and as men deal with this government, so men may deal with the other and become ut terly unsaleable. FltOXTKKAS.

Coiellu came to Tombstone to purchase a supply-of provis ions for the troops stationed ut Frontc ru9, und under the command of Col. Nicolas Espann, which now number 31)0 men. Capt. Corella is accompanied by three sol diers, ull of whom laid off their uniform at the custom house and donned civillinn dress. He is a strong, manly person, en 'dowed wnh a pleasinjr cuutitenuncc and address that .bespeak the thorough gentle man. He Is authorized to purchase 0,000 pounds ot provisions and charter a learn to take the same to Fmntems. Col. Espami in a letter to Senor Core'.la says that here after monthly purchases will he made in Tombstone of ahout the same quantity, for the supply of that poet. This will amount to about f 1,000 per month, which will be quite an item for our business men. Col. Espanu is making prep tratlons to start out on a campaign after the hostile Apaches. He will move simultaneously with his f.itceof !!00 men, with the 500 troops stationed ut S.iuharip.i, both bodies converging toward the same point in the Sierra Mudres, uheie the hostile-' are sup posed to be. No further depredations have heen rep. rted since the attack un Nacorl, an account of which first appt arid in the Ehtaimi. A new road to Fronteras has been opened, i tinning from Sun l'edro south of the San .lose mountains and ninth of the Ajn, which makes a large saving of time aud travel between Tombstone und that place, us It 8ive doubling the road be tween Heteford und San Idm, as he eto liirc. Captain Corella reports u large in tlux of prospectors into the Fronlcras dis trict, and one rich strike northwest of that place und about, twcMy miles distant, in Ike Cerro Tordillo. T'tis mine is called the Sin fgnacio, and simples of the ore aliot) fully justify the report of the strike. The ledge is "said to be 20 arils wide. Tlie ore occurs in stratus about 4 feet thick running parallel with the ledge. The ore is a chlorobromide contained in a porous nuartz. Near by is a copper mine of some prominence. In time Fronteras will become the center of a lurge mining iu'iustrv. More Mail Faclllticx.

' 3 INJolcliig ijriitllei. Salt Lake. March 15. Tho re ceiptuf the news of the passage of the Edmunds bill has created great excitement in this citv. People who have waited twenty years for help from the government can hardly re alize that action has been taken at last, and to-day men hu -ged each other on the streets for joy. Tho young Mormons are equally elated and favor the bill. They have been kept in the background for years by the old graybeard.t, and chafo under the restraint. They now talk openly in favor of a new deal, and snap their fingers in the faces of the old heads of the church. Non- of these young people havo. ever favored po lygumy . To-nTght there is a meet ing of the High Council, and it is rumored 'hat there will be a split in the church. On receipt of the. news the Tiibune issued an extra and hoisted the American flag over the building. Three years ago the same office was harricaded and filled with armed men, while .the priests wre preaching in the tabernacle, and all were waiting the demolition of- the office. The people of Utali feel to day as did the negroes of the south when the Emancipation proclamation was issued. A Chilian Vleior3". Lima, March 15.--A fight recently occurred at Pucara, near Huacayo. The Peruvians had 1810 combatants but no artillery, und tho Chilians 1200 men and five cannon. The Peruvians had tho position and, thu Zepita and Lima regiment fought valiantly, but tho Chilians; after charging three times, drove them from the hill, and scatt red them over the country. Col. Delecanto com manded the Chilians, and it is stated' positively that Cacerves, in disguise, commanded tho Peruvians. Cacerves had appointed Pucara as a rallying point, und meant to gather 'about himself thero a new army, for there were 200 Peruvian officers among the 1810 when the Chilians discovered the rendezvous aud broke it up. One Chilian officer aud three Peruvian officers were killed in that battle and about 300 common soldiers. The routed Peruvians made their way towards Aacucho, where Panizo, a Pieralaist, is quartered with 1000 men. It is not known yet whether Panizo has joined them for another rally or not. Senor Jovino Novoa, the Chili in Commissioner in Lima, received on the 4th instant, a telegram from his iroverument official y aniiouncint; that Mr. Tr.-scott and Senor Balma ceda have terminated their confer ciices ami. have signed the protocol for peace between Chili and Peru, in which the interests of Chili arc fully consulted. It is believed that the cession of Tarapaca is provided for. whilst Chili withdraws her claim for tho immediate payment of a war in demnity. A Colliery Horror. WiLKKSitAititi!, Pa., March 16 The cave in at tho Baltimore mint did not extend last night, and to-day tons of baled hay weie thrown into the cavity to choke off the flowing water. The danger is not over, as any moment may witness tho settle ment of thickly inhabited ground in the vicinity. A double-story brick public, school stands within a hundred feet of the manni! of the yawning chasm made yesterday. Hundreds of pupils attended, mostly the children of those who work in the mines. The alunn in tho neighborhood is general, and many fxmilias refuso to stay in their hollies until tho danger is offic ially declared at an end. The local itv is all undermined, with nothing between the vacant chambers of the colliery and the surface hut shelly rock and quicksand. A terribly fa tal disaster appears now to be onlv a question of a short time. The Southern Floods. VicKsnuitG, March 15. News from tho overflowed district continues to pour in.
