LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The South is displeased because, in making up his Cabinet, President Arthur lias entirely overlooked the claims of that section. This is not to be wondered at. His conduct in this respect is inexplica ble. Fifteen, sovereign States are cer tainly entitled to a voice among the Presi dent's official advisers. It would be charity to think that the omission was an oversight on the part of the President, but such an excuse can hardly be urged to acquit him of blame. The loyalty of the South to the Union can no longer be questioned, and although there may be some domestic irregularities in two or three of the Southern States, this is a mat ter of small importance, lie is the Chief Execntivo ofliocr of the whole country; hence it scemod his duty to so divide his patronage as to avoid the appearance even of favoritism or partiality. The Southern States, however, are only placed in the same situation in relation to Cabinet in fluence as are the States of the Pacific Coast. The Philadelphia Times notices the losses of Colonel Forney while Secretary of the United States Senate, of which the public generally were ignorant, and urges that Congress should reimburse his family for the money stolen from the Government by his financial clerk while Mr, Forney was Secretary of the Senate, and which he made gcod out of his own pocket, putting a mortgage on his prop erty to enablo him to do so. The facts, as they have heretofore been given to the public and are now repeated by the Times, are briefly these: Mr. Wagner, the defaulting clerk, when appointed by Colonel Forney, was of advanced ago and blameless habits, who went into specula tions, lost, and to cover his losses used the money entrusted to his care to the amount of ?35,4SG. He surrendered his property to Colonel Forney, on which the latter realized $7,802, leaving a balance as above stated. The primary object of all Polar explor ations is supposed to be the making of discoveries that will add to the wealth of geographical and scientific knowledge. Something in this respect has been ac complished by the United States steamer Rogers, sent in search of the Jeannette, and it is said the Hydrographio office at Washington has just issued a new circum polar chart, giving the boundaries of Wrangel Island, and other valuable data, embracing Commander I)e Long's obser vations. If the Indians in Arizona are deter mined to amuse themselves every sum mer by indulging in a war again the whites, would it not be a wise policy in the Government to equip the Indians with the best of arms and issue them am munition and rations, then give them full privilege to kill all the cowboys they happen to run across? By this means the two troublesme elements of Arizona society would soon be made way with. Professor Fairfield thinks there are reasons to believe that the house fly, with its numerous lenses, capable, as it has lately been proved, of change of focus, like the human eye, by a circular muscle, overlooked by early entomolo gists, can avoid the serious difficulties we meet with in high powers, and could distinctly recognize objects only a twenty millionth of an inch in diameter. There is a proposition in the House of Congress to sell the Charlestown Navy Yard. It is said that $6,000,000 can be realized on it. Ex. Then let the proceeds of the sale be de voted to the purchase of cocktails for our noble Senators and Representatives. Two years ago Tand in Huthinson county, Dakota, was worth a little less than nothing, but now, says the Olivet Record, it costs from $400 to $800 for a quarter section of land without improve ments.

LATEST NEWS BY MAIL. Toledo, Ohio, April 24. The saloon keepers have taken a stand in regard to the Pond and Smith law, Which is causing considerable commotion and inconvenience. They notified the authorities that they would observe the law strictly, and demanded in turn the strict enforcement of the sweeping Sun day law passed fifty years ago prohibit ing all sorts of work on Sunday. It in cludes street cars, hacks, barber shops, grocery stores, milk peddlers, butcher Bhops, Sunday newspapers, etc. The saloons were all strictly closed and the police took the names of all persons en gaged in Sunday employment including drivers of carriages at a funeral, but made no arrest. Warrants will be issued to-morrow. Shakespeare, X. M. April 24. Couriers from Gila River report that a band of twenty-five Warm Spring Apa ches had burned the ranches of Purdy, York, Cornell and Hutchins and drove oil' all the stock. It is reported that six or eight men were murdered. Last night heavy and continuous firing was heard nt Lee's camp on the Gila River. Fears are entertained for the people work ing at the placer mines a short distance above Clifton. A company of fifty mounted volunteers left here to-day for the scene of the outrage. San Francisco, April 24. A Lordsbnrg (New Mexico) special says: In a fight yesterday afternron, at llorshoe Canyon, between Indians and Indian scouts and troops, the latter were victorious. Four Indian scouts were killed, and three soldiers wounded. Small bands of hostiles have been seen going south over San Simon Flat. A band of twenty or thirty crossed the Southern Pacific track near here early this morning, going north toward the Burro mountains. McDonald, a well known prospector of this section, arrived from the Gila river this morning. He assisted in burying the bodies of twenty men yesterday, and reports several per sons missing. The Indians number over three hundred bucks, squaws and chil dren, as shown by actual count while passing York's ranch. The Indians are completely surrounded and corralled in Double Canyon. Those seen on San Simon Flat last evening were evidently stragglers. All male citizens of Lciten dorf, Shakespeare and Lordsbnrg are under arms. Cost of a Mining Patent. About every other day, says tho Eureka Sen tinel, the question is asked: "How much does it cost to obtain a patent?" We will assume that the required $500 worth of labor has been expended upon the mine, and proceed to answer as near as may be as follows: Tho advance fee for office work in the United States Surveyor Gen eral's office in San Francisco on each and every claim is $40. The fees of the Deputy Mineral Surveyor may be aver aged at $100. Such would be the charge for surveying a single claim, or it might be reduced one-hall where there are sev eral to make in one locality. We believe such charges is made on the basis of $20 per day. The fees of the Register and Receiver of the local Land Office amount to $10, the cost of advertising will aver age, say $40, depending entirely upon the length of the description, which may be long or concise. I he cost ot posting notices on the mine and the affidavits of witnesses may be set down at $20. In most cases an attorney will have to be employed, whose fees should not be more than $100 for all clerical work. Then add the final Government charge for the land at So per acre for a quartz claim. One of 1500x000 feet contains a fraction over twenty-one acres, and consequently costs say $107. Thus we have the sum of $417 as a fair and average estimate of the cost of securing a Government patent, a perfect title to a full-sized quartz claim. A gentleman from the Arizona country inlorm us ot a peculiar incident that re cently occurred among the Moquis In dians. Theie was 'a very bad Indian named Liirhtninir, who at one time at tempted to commit an outrage upon a little white girl. The Indians exhibited a great apathy toward him. He took sick and his people thought there was some probability of his not dying, so they dug his grave, and a man got on each side of hiin, walked him up to the hole, put him in and buried him. One of the Indians who took part in the affair, related the details to interpreter L. C. Christiansen, who said: " And did you actually bury him before he was dead?" "Well, he cried a little whin we put him in, but he was some dead anyway." Deseret News.

STATE ITEMS. Men are gradually being placed to work on the Comstock mines. As far as heard from 420 voters of all sizes have registered at Carson. Nevada has only two Indian tribes, the Piutes and Shoshones, who number about 7.S11 combined. Henry Ludwig, an old Tteese River pioneer, says the Austin Reveille, tried to shuffle off his mortal coil with an ax. Last week the ore yield of the Union mine was AH tons. The bullion product for the present month will exceed $70, 000. The Leader says that that commissioaer Campbell, of Eureka county, is after the Democratic nomination for State Con troller. Elko Independent: The grass is anxious to keep in season, and in its efforts to show itself is pushing the snow aside in sunny places. The ore now coming out of the Mon itor mine, at Taylor, says the Ward Re flex, is much richer than for some time past. It now ranges between $300 and $400 to the ton. Ward Reflex: Cherry Creekers have been in town in force the past week. All of them are former residents of Ward. They entertain the idea that this place will soon take on a little prosperity. The Virginia Enterprise says work on the Voltaire mine, near Carson, has been resumed, and operations in the mill of that company will be resumed in about two weeks. A very rich quality of ore is now being extracted. Naehes, the Piute Chief, informs the Silver State that he has about forty acres of land plowed on his ranch at Big Mead-1 ows, and that he intends to put in a large crop of wheat there this Spring. He has four or five Indians working on the place. The Grantsville Bonanza gives a newly married couple this send off: "The one stamp mill started up in Belmont on the 13th, it is claimed that it works like a charm, and as the ore which is at present being worked is of a high grade a hand some return is looked for." The Lander Free Press, Battle Moun tain, says: Just as the 7 o'clock train pulled in from the east this morning, Bill Cumberland, well known about this section, who has been employed on the Tuscarora stage road, was observed standing on the track, near the water tank. He had taken off his coat, hat and boots, and was preparing to throw himself in front of the approaching train. In fact the train was stopped within a foot of him when ho was taken away by Joe Dusang. He said that he wanted to die. Too much tangle-foot was the cause. Four " rustlers" who had engaged in the fight with the Earns at Whetstones recently met a Mexican driving a team of mules four miles irom Calabazas, A. T. A peremptory halt was ordered, and the astonished Sonorian was compelled to unhitch four of his best mules. The day following two Celestial restaurateurs came to grief at the hands of the same ubiquitious rustlers. When within a few miles of town the brace of Johns was stopped and relieved of over $200 in coin. With grim humor the reckless villians then stripped the clothing from the wreUhed Chinamen, and in a state of nudity bade them proceed upon their journey, accelerating their pace with a volley ot bullets in close proximity to their retreating forms. Stages began running . regularly into the Yosemite valley by way of Milton yesterday. Sleds drawn by horses are used in traveling over the snow. The animals are provided with snowshoes; consisting of blocks alwut 13 inches square and one inch in thickness, to winch suitable attachments are taxed for the purpose of securing the foot, The horses readily learn to manipulate these apparently clumsy appendages, and mane excellent progress over the snow. The Bodie Free Press savs the squaws are now busy washing gold, and they are making respectable wages. As a general thing the female members of an Indian tribe are industrious and willincr to work now and again. Over at Dog Town the squaws some days earn $2 or $3. These industrious habits help to keep the In dian poker games in operation. 'Germans and English swear by God, the Latin rases by the Yjrgin, Danes by the devil.
