I on commence at the beginning of our jonrney and give yon a description of the route we trailed, whicb, to Bay tht least, i a f""' that I will never trsrel guin, utiles circumatancea over whuh I bars do control should compel'ma to do so. We Bot Varowun on the third dny. I went to the telegraph office the nut moiuing about half-past eight o'clock, but was finable to get the opera tor ( lily) out of bed, consequently X could not aend you a telegram. We hired a man to carry our things from here to Panguich. where we arrived on the fifth day, and pitched, our camp in the yard ut wir friend Wis. P root or, to whom we arc nnder many obligations for favors rendered ns, but we have no friendly eiliuga for the people of Summit, a little tuwn about six miles west of Farowan. We eame to the conclusion, after due con aidmtiou, that these people are not good Christiana, at least they refused to com ply with tbe requirements of the good boos in that command where it says if a stranger comta along take him in, for we aakrd of them only such things as they possessed, such as feed for our tired ani mals, which they refused to sell na for noma reason best known to themselves at any pric, although w told them tout our animals were tired and some of them lama. We reached the first hotel aa we tillered Parowun a little late, where we received - good ' accommondations. A number of our party expected to get their onttit at Parowan but they found tbe store out of nearly all kinds of staple Koods, so they got such things as they could, bought some horses, and made the liest time we could until we caught up to tbe first party, whioh we overtook on the seveuth day after leaving Pioche. We went from Panguich nearly south, by way of Little Knnab, about seventy miles to Johnson's Ranch, a small Mormon settlement, where we found a store kept by Mr. Johnson, a clever gentlemun, who bad the best assortment of goods that we found outside of Pioche. He had on band almost everything a prospecting pirty could ask for. Had we not found this place on our road many of our party would have suffered many inconveniences for want of things, too numerous to men tion, which were supplied by him at very reasonable prioes. booth of here about two miles ia where the Tokeraville road comes into the road leading to the Fabi rea. We laid over at Johnson's one dny, when we started for the Pahirea, and a Mormon settlement there of the satns name, almost due eaBt and distant 37 miles from Johnson's, which we traveled in one day. Lee's ferry is at the mouth of tbe Pahirea, forty miles from this town; and the Ute orossing on the Col orado is about 45 miles from Pahirea, and higher up on the Colorado than the ferry. We crossed at thia ford on the eleventh day eut, aud camped on tbe eastern bank of this tearful and so much dreaJed stream without any serious ac cident. Next morning ws again took up our line of mnrch over rock and cliff, sometimes Scaling the precipitous and dangerous bluffs, then wading through snud half knee deep, going in every di rection until we would find ourselves looking down 500 or 1.U00 feet over some ledge of pure sandstone into the deep canyon below. Here a dim trail is barely visible, and no alternative is ottered us, proceed ws must and wend our way along this zik-mi! path too Deal we can; aowu perpendicular walls from two feet to five feet. Many places the walla were so high that it would huve been impossible to either desoeud as ascend them had it not been (or the steps made by piling up rock to assist the horses, and in many other places steps had been cut in tbe sand stone to assist animals iu keeping their leal. ny Dan Kics a trained ponies would not be anywhere alongside of tbe teats penormed by some our ponies. To go up or down a pair of steus is noth ing, they can run un or down stairs like a goat; and one mule walked out over a shelving rock and went headlong over a bluff not less than 35 feet. He was re leased from bis nark for ,Wi? hut tint a bit of it, for he jumped up and went to unng. so nis uwner said put bis pack on again, as long as be eats he shall work, whish he did, and is here all right, and readv for soother rlnnhU onmmoraat. Jou may think this is a little colored but I tell you it is the truth, and, by way of explanation, I will say that in making the descent down the bluff to the river, as well as many other places, we passed over solid smooth rock so fearfully steep that it would make the hair atand up on a man's head, and it would have been impossible for either man or horse to seep nis feet, onlv for the rjecnliar char acter of the rock, whicb, is of such a na ture that it would admit of a hold being made in it by the eorks on the bones boes. The distance is about 100 miles that we were obliged to travel over this broken and desolate oountry, a oouutry too poor and worthless to offer induce ments sufficient to get jack rabbit to hre in it. If Uncle Samuel was to make ns a present of 100 miles square of thia wuutry i snouia want it exempted irom taxes for sll time. About 50 miles from the river the can yons begin to get a little broader suy from two rods to half a mile in width and here is where we first meet with the Navafaoea. whnm i,,, ,1 r. .... friendly and possessed of fine hards of "P ana goats.

I know thev are good and tweet, for thay were kind enough to give most of us some. of tbeir "taming hot from the Oat rock pon which they wen baked. These In. hant also maka a van rood blanket, strong, warm' and durable; but those I saw were coarse, although it is said they tn mske soma very fins ouea.

Tbe roof mast be 125 feet highland large trees grow beneath it. The hoases here looked if they bad been broken down by a cave from the hanging wall. We counted aeven rooms in one house, and found what looked like a cistern, anch aa are built at this age of the world. : Hmali holes were left iu the walls of the boas, supposed to have been used as port holes aa it seems all these villages wore built to fortify themselves against tbe attacks of enemies, Tbe mortar looked as if it had been made of sand, wrthont lime, but bad formed into a aetaen almost as hard as tha foeks used ia erecting tht structures.' The Indians now living ia these valleys csn give no information as to when these houses we raj built, not as to who built tbeui. Persons who pre tend to know say the Indians have a superstitious dread of going into any of these ruins. - The whole country ia dot ted with pieces of broken pottery. We generally fouud pretty good feed, but water was not so plenty. . e r t. The next thing of importance was our visit to tha diamond fields, whioh are situated ou the Bio de C belly, wbera we gathered quite a number of rubies. Here w.is where the little bickerings that had been going On in our little party of 23 men and 44 aniniala began to as sume shape and threatened a split in tbe company; but one day's rest for our weary animals, where they bad plenty of good feed, put all of qs in a better humor. - - - Our guids hers found a mule, sup possd to be one 4hat gave out and was left by Lieut. Wheeler; and the next day he found another, and brought them both in. When we left the ruby fields it was generally understood that we would go iu sn easterly direction as near as prac ticable, which we did for about 15 miles, following the old footprints of Wheeler; but they turued from east to north, and still our party persisted in following them, until We traveled about 30 miles, where night overtook us, when wa camp, ed without water and with but little feed. Next morning we made An early start and fouud water after traveling about 10 miles, where we rested the remainder of the day. It rained most of the mgbt at this place, and tbe high lands were so covered with a dense fog that we were nnnble to get sight of our landmarks. Here our party divided, and the old tac tics was resumed in going a lew miles south, then a little east, and then much north as we went south, until we finally reached the long-looked for ban Juan river. " Had we kept the course de termined upon when we left the diamond fields we would have accomplished in less than two days sll we did in five, counting one day that we laid over. Should any other parties ever strike our trail and follow it they win curse us lor an tne idiots that ever got out of sight of thsir mothers. Most ol our party wished tney had never seen tbe footprints supposed to have been made by the Wheeler party; but in this instance, as in most others of the kind where mistakes are made, no one was to blame, and we all share alike. After traveling oip the river oue day ws camped near where the Indian trails for the first time could be seen crossiug the river and running north and south, Here tbe most of our little party were undecided as to the best route, so we agreed to lay over a day, and our guide and Mr. Foae took tbeir beet horses aud scoured the country along the base of a small mountain rauge lying south ot the river hoping to find an Iudian for iiuide, but no aborigine could be discovered, although fresh Indian signs were visible. .Next day ws again started on our journey, this time all agreeing to follow up tne river uutil we reacneu tne Animus, then follow it to ths mines But we chopped on reaching the first cross trail, as usual turning from on easterly course to almost direct north, until we reached ths Kio aiaucus, which ws had crossed -two days previous nesr the San Juan where it was dry, but ten miles from its mouth It is a good sized stream. We followed up the Mancus uu til near its head, whicb took us three days, over a very rough trail. The banks of this stream are so high that it is very difficult to find a place where you aan get a horse down to the stream, and let me say right here that onoe you get in this eanyon with a horae 'you can never get him out, only by following up the river to near its head, or down to tbe mouth of the canyon, unless you hoist turn up a perpendicular wait sandstone from 500 to 1000 feet high, by block and taokle or some other power, Alone this river coal can be seen crop ping out to the very sunaoe. near me head of this river we came to a more open and level oountry, and found our selves north of the western terminus ol the San Juan range. Mow comes ths hours of our discontent. Some said that thev were not going any further unless some low pass orosBed by a trail could be found leading to the south side of the mountains. We camped about 1 o'clock, and a proposition was made to lay over and send two men out with two or three days rations to look up a pass. Nothing was done, however, except wnat was learned from the boys while out hunting for game, keeping a good look out for the trail at tbe same time. I took npon myself tbe task of assoending one ot tbe highest peaks, lying at a distance of about five miles. Our guide being too tired to make the journey that day, and time being too preoioua to waste, i suc ceeded in reachiug tha mountain top just before the sun disappeared behind the western horizon. From my elevated nositionl oould plainly see that there was a low pass, and I waa so well satis fied with tts being passame tnat i naa fully made up my mind to cross over in , i . : r ..I, l l T me muruiug ll jjubsiuio at ail unn. returned to oamp about ,7 o'clock p. m when I was told that a trail had been seen leading toward the the low gap pointed out to them. For or 3 days past we seldom saw tbe sun, and on tb dav the clonds began to thicken i though ths fleecy snow might eommence falline at anv moment. , We were now where we had good reason to believe that snow falls' to a depth ot from five to seven feat; Five or six inchea already eorered the north hillside, and you may now well imagine tha many misgivings of our little party, situated as wa were in a strange country, surrounded by high mountains, and barely ten days' provis ions to carry as to a settlement, no ons knew wbere. Wltn feelings of sadnness. more than of anger, wa ones more ad' jUBted our pack preparatory to another day's travel, but thanks to on good for tunemore than our good judgment a good trail and an easy pass was soon found leading to ths very plsce we wished to go. Oar trail crossed tha head waters of the Bio Laplata, where wa left it and followed a break in the mourn tains, which led us to the Animus river about ten miles below the Mta of the old town, whicb baa not been inhabited sines '63. We crossed tha river and camped about noon tha seoond day after leaving tha Mancus. Here onr hearta ware gladdsned by tha sound of a dog, and bis bark was welcomed with a cheer from ns that mads ths woods ring. A few feet more and tbe dog oould be seen standing by a horse that was tied in a dense thick et, a white man's coat was tied behind the saddle, and it waa at once determined to be a white man's horae and dog. Tha boys shook the old dog's paws and felt as glad to meet this canine aa though he had been aome long loat friend. Ws left a notice for the ownr of tbe horse to come to our camp ou his return. We lost no time in squatting on ths nearest ramping ground and firing a few shots, in tbe hope of attracting the attention of our supposed frieuft. It bad now been about fourteen or fifteen days since we left the Navahoe camp or seen a person except oue of our own party. On the foutth day alter we split, our party came together again and camped ona night at the same place, but next morning we sepsrated sgain, and ainoe then I nave not seen them, though they struck our trail snd came in on it one day and a half behind us. The gentleman we were waiting for put in bis appearance in about two hours, and we were pleased to learn that e had once been a resident of Piocbe. He (Mr. Osburn) informed us tbat b was ons of tbe company interested iu the relocation of the new town site of Ani mus City, aud in a road to be built from Loma to Animus, also in a road to be built from this place to Animus. Animus City had been built up in IBO'2 aud the town and valley numbered about l,3u0 souls, Many evidences of this colony are yet to be seen. I shall not attempt to giva you tbe history of these unfortunate people until I can leutn more of the particulars concerning them. We learned from Mr. Oabtirn that there waa no provisions to be got, uuless in case of absolute want. The company working the Little Giant have suspended all work until Spring, except a few men who are working ou contract, and there were not to exceed forty men all told in the valley mines. and none of thoss we saw bad supplies sumoient to last them ths winter. When we struck the Animus, it was at what is called the Lower Park, 55 miles from the mines. The TjDoer Park where the principal mines are located, is known as Bakes Park. It was now tbe first day of December, and we bad barely enough provisions, lo visit the mines we must assend Irom an altitude of b.tMJu to one of 12,700 feet, wbere snow laid at tbat time to a depth of IS inches to two feet, and our horses must be rough shod to ensbls them to climb tbe slippery trail. Ws spent one day tn the valley and went up ten miles to tbe principal settment (a few of ns went up), where we gathered all the information we oould. Uere we met parties that bad succeeded in getting through with two-horse wagons, snd while on our way to thia place we met three men from Pueblo, with two mules and a wagon and two jnck, who had been traveling since the Jd ot Ao vember; we also met parties here that left Denver about the same time. We have not been in sight of the mines yet, Wa are told that ijoma (or Del Murte, one and tbe same place) was about 120 from Animus uity (a city in tne pros pectus and Hera Amanita, wbere l am now, waa about 103 miles), but we were advised net to attempt to cross over to l.ouia by the direct trail, called the lios Pinos Pass, at least if tbe weather looked threatening, though it was a hard thing for any of us, and myself in particular, to consent to go 200 miles around, yet our circumstances compelled us to do so. I was so fully determined to make tbe cut off, that Foresythe and I divided up, and myself, Foresytbe, Fobs, Wray, 'l'oland, Campbell, Hutchings, MoClure, Pheasant, Trimble and J. a. stone, of Colorado, are here the last named gen tleman is acting as our interpreter here among tbe Mexicans, whose hospitality we are now sharing. 1 bis place is made up of four little towns, comprising a population of 700 people, and marked on tbe map as Camp Fort Plummer, situated on the Rio de Chamms. Tbe day we left the Animus it commenced snowing, and snow leu every day until we reached here taking us six days falling 3 inches the first day and 5 inches the seoond, and before we reaobed here we waded through anow 20 inchea deep. To-day is the 12th, and we have been here fire days, where they told us that onlv a few inches of snow falls, and it baa been snowing nearly half the time since we got here. Tbe Mexicans say tbe snow fall here ranges from two to five feet. We were told tbat wa oould get to;Loma from here iu 100 miles, but we are now informed that we cannot cross tbe mountains and must go 225 miles to reach Loma, or if we wish to strike Pueblo we must travel some fur ther. Our horses were cut down more in the six days snowstorm than in all the rest of the trip. I can hardly help feel ing thankful that I gave up the idea of going direct to Loma, as we have just met two men here who started eight days before we did and were obliged to turn back, and oniy cot nere one aav before us, after going without food of anv kind for tbree days. I will go back now and mention a few faots that msy bs of interest to you that I have overlooked so far. Arizona, or that part traversed by us, is a rocky. bluffy sandstone formation, and sandy hills and valleys. At a rough estimate, I should say that wa traveled 150 miles in sand. There are many miles in length of sandstone that is striped of all vege. tation aud as clean as though it had been swept with a broom. When it storms the water runs off of this smooth rock as it would off ot a tin roof, and falling over bluffs, sometimes hundreds of feet high. Deep holes or wells are ont out of the solid rock by the fall of tbe water, but on the levelest rocks holes from tbe sixe of a cup to great cisterns are cut ont by the action of the wind. water and drifting sand. These natural wells or cisterns are called tauks, and can generally be found containing more or less water shortly after a storm, or until it is evaporated or absorbed by the porous rock. There the traveler can quench the thirst of himself and animal and go on his way rejoicing, and be made to admit that some eood may be found even in tbe barren sandstone of Arizona. The San Juan, wbera we crossed it, would maka swift run ning stream of water one foot deep by 100 feet in widtb, in the loweat stage, and must be a fearful stream when high. The Animus ia o stream fully oae-half tha size of the San Juan, and haa a great deal of fall. Timber in this country can not be considered of much valoe, an it is all timber. Tha mountain sides, in all directions, are thickly studded with fins pina timber; and near tha summit, and extending far down along the spurs, a dense growth of scrubby ask covers ths mountains for miles and miles, making it almost impossible for wan or beast to get through, and whsn a person crosses sua of these trails, a ragpicker would Durniy stoop to pick up nis ciotaes. I eun't tell vou much about the mines, Parlies tell us that about 3,000 people have . bee far the district eraring the Summer, but not to exceed 1.000 at any one time. Tha Little Ulan Company hava soma kind of -a rattle-trap of a revolving roller, jaw breaking five-stamp mill, which took them iK) days to get from Loms over the mountain. They were obliged to hoist the wagons and tbe boiler and en gine over many places with the block and tackle, and the machinery far their 15 stamp mill lies scattered along the road lor a distance ol bu miles, l oeueve this is the company tbat is building the road irom Jxma to tbe mines, oireci. i would much prefer to be at Loma to-day, as it is the mining headquarters and built up by Americans. as to the vama oi tne outside mines we csu only guess; but sll parties, so far aa I have conversed with them, sgres on one thing, that there ia plenty of metal in these mountains. I have seen many samples of ore, and nine out of ten of tbem contained a great ueai ol base metal, geuerally galena. There are no aasayers in the district at present, and we can onlv guess at the amount of gold and silver contained in tha rock. Nearly all we meet talk favorably of tbe mineral prospects, are in the best of spirits, aud intend to winter as near the mines as tbey can, and be ready to take tbe first boat in tha Spring. wo surtace diggings nave yei been found that will pay. ' I make mention of this fact because we have just .been told that such reports are current on the Denver side. I expect it would be well to take the reports written by interested parties with a grain of allowance. For my part I have seen nothing to change the opiuion 1 had ol tnia range ot moun tains before leaving Pioche. I still I think this range of mountains contain plenty of tbe precious metals, and if re ports can be relied npon tnonsanas ol people are coming here as soon as Spring opens, and prospects are favorable for the opening up of one of the richest districts in the Rooky mountain range. We struck nothing that looked as though a color could be fouud until wa struck the San Juan. I shall advise all persons, business men or miners, who contem plate looking for a fortune in the San Juan mountains, not to think of coming here until May. The names of the per sous mentioned in this are all of oar party who are here. The reet of them are on tha Animas or between here and there. Board can be had here for 75 cents to $1 per day; grain four cents; flour 1 10 per cwt.; bacon 33 oents; sugar the same, and other things in proportion. A good beef steer can be bought from $20 to $30. Seven wagons, some of them with fam ilies, have just arrived here, expecting to bs abls to get through, but it will be im possible for tbem to do so. Prospectors ars coming in here from the Denver side every day, but most of them, as far as I can learn, have made up their minds to send their stook about 40 miles south of here, where it is said they can bs win tered, as tbe snow never falls very deep there, or return to Ssnta Fe or soms other place south of hers to winter, Hoping this will reach you before tha snow is all gone from the highest peak, and wilt find yon well, I remain, yours truly, i . i Habvii Booni, Tbe above description of the route and country meeting our approval, we, ths subscribers, would be glad to have it published in the Pioohe Kkoobo, bo thst our friends can sll have sn opportunity of reading and learning what we think of tbe country, gusitu ss (Carflj, 0.
