"Vc arc sure the-taxpayers and all others having thu welfare of the ' county at heait en tertiin these same views and will enforce them-at the proper t'mc. It will make but. little difference to them whether these qualities are to lie found in a person who has re ceived the Herniation at the hands oi either of the conventions that meet during ;the. latter part of this month, or in n person running en tirely independent. VTe shall give our suport to such candidates for county officers as we may deem best fitted to fill them honestly, tco- libiulcullv and intelligently. THE INDIAN WAR. At the breaking out of the prcs- cut Iudian war in eastern Oregon, and western Idaho, the com ! ln.inding officers at Fort Boise had oidy one" small squad cf cavalry, and could pursue the Indians in but one direction. Had there been more soldiers at that post the out break could have been nipped ill the bud, and for this season at least we would not have been troubled with an Indian war. It Is estima ed that the eost of th war will be much, ivore than the maintaining of one hundred soldiers in that sec tion of the country' for a century. Oregon papers arc advocating that . it is the duty of Congress to pass a relief bill for the families that have -- Lccn deprieved of their homes and crops. There ' seems ' to be some justice in the demand, seeing that . the outbreak could have been quell eu at the commencement Jiaa l lie "Government taken proper precau tions. 'At the present time the In dians in Arizona are ' exceedingly quiet, but their numbers are suffi ciently. largcto cause much loss to life and property at any time an up rising 'occurs. Troops should uot be withdrawn fiom this Territory unless their places aro immediately iupp'ied witbj'other companies. This reducing posts on the frontier to a mere skeleton is false economy .at Iks. RAILROAD EXTENSION. The statement made in a recen number of the Pan Francisco Post that the Southern Pacific Railroad would commence building its rsad .eastward frorii Yuma' in September next, has been vxry.extensively . copiod by the press of Arizona and Fcuthcrn California. As to th truth of this statement, it is of couise impossible for us to state, but we do know that it is the earnest hope of every person wishing the rapii jlcvclopment of our resources that such m the case. Until such lime as the railroad is. partially built iiososs thc Territory our progress w ill be slow. Our great want has been capital, but " flint we will not h:iv until tvr :uo faM. r ut ncres. j C;iiitiilists w ill jiot emiure the li inl- ! fliips necessary to rtsirli tho miner- ; :il iii'Ud of Arizona, a lo!i;r a jrnoj J opportiurties may b; found in places i ea.-ii r of nccuss. llecaiiio cap! , alisU do not invest tin ir money in i this T. nitory it is no sign that ; proUtible inve.tuie:it.s couKI not be made. When the times conn s that they can leave the different uiene- ary centers, and niter a few days j iiufortahl..1 traveling in palace ars, r.'ach our Territory, then will the cry of more uiouey be. forever uis'.ed.With the development of our mines will conieau incroas-cd demand for the p:o-.luct" tif tin;- ngrirultu- ral sections of iA.ru.niii, and as Salt j llivcr Valley has the largest acerag.; ; and no failures owing to the qnanti- ty .of water for irrigation, wc will continue to furnish iu the future as well as tho pst everything that ran i. .i :.. ...ii.,.. ...! !

Anv person who h;.8 traveled to any extent over the different roads in this Territory cannot have failed to encounter quite a number of men on foot, with blankets on tlie'rback. if they are fortunate enough to own any, traveling from camp to c:imp, s. -eking employment. In r.caily every instance they belong to that class, who, when asked what can they do, reply -"almost anything." Of this elass, Aiizona. like nearly in the I'nioM, is abundantly supplied, and has no. desire for more. 1 he fol low iug item has been published in several California papers, and needs some explanation : A. McXeeh- writes to the Neva da, (Cal.) Truuncripl from Tip-Top, -niion:i, jiroiesiing agi nt .state ments that have been made advis ing persons goinp: to that, section to obtain labor, lie savs the com. try is overstocked in that respect, and t'.iat there arc bundled already there without a cent in their pock ets, and that many are con.pelled to go about without even shoes to their feet. The Mexican serves unskilled la bor i'i Arizona in the same manner that (he Chinese do California, mid it is therefore at a very large dis count, while on the other band, skilled labor can always obtain em ployment at rcnumeiative wages. There is no necessity of even the poorest workman going barefooted or even xufferin;; hunirer if he onlv be sober and industrious. Our unskilled ranks arc filli d by Mexi cans who work for one dollar and one dollar and a half per d.iv. What we do want is men t killed in the different trades and men of small means, to whom good openings to invest are always, offered. FAMINE IN CHINA. -The famine now devastating the northern part of China is one of the direst calamities that has ever be fallen the human race. This fam ine extends over a vast extent of country, and is increasing day by day. until it has reached the fright ful number of 4.000,000 lives, that have perished. ' The Taeifie Coat press are fearful that this will cause an . increased emigration to this Country of these poor de-graded peo ple, and it is' of the utmost impor tance, that steps be taken to prevent a further increase. There arc now too many of these people on our Western Coast, and is hoped that Congress will remedy this evil at its next session. Inuring the past two or three weeks, we have received letters and communications from distant places, and at home touching on items of interest, but were of no a"ail to us, as the author's name was not known.

It c;sts but little, but the benefits are unlimited. ,i. . - BUTTER AND CHEESE.

The country is very well' watered by several small streams. It has a climate favora ble to the production of butt. 'rand cheese articles . -that brings good price, and arc never a drug on the market. A cheese factory started at Phenix, would be abun dantly supplied with material to work with, and find a ready mar- i ket at good prices for the result of their labor. In the' next year we expect to sec a great stride in the devclopnniit of our resources in this respect. WHAT THEY SAY OF US. All of the leading papers of the country, who, but a few years ago denominated our Territory as ' a md of savages, lizards, cactus, etc., now teem with praise, for us, and speak in glowing terms of our mineral wealth. The following ex tract is from the New York 2ininrj Heard, the ablest mining journal in the United States. It savs : Considered Trom a mining point of view, Arizona will, one day, ac eordin to the opinion of the most noted geologists who have ventured into this wild, and up to lately. dangerous country , prove the richest intl most pronti'.ble held for explo ration iu the world. It would seem fioin some of the most n liable ac counts brought to nsof this country, is though this was oi:c of the earth's great repositories, where ii has stored up, for the us" of future generations, vast treasures, the ex tent of which have, up to the pres ent time, been kept a secret I'roin the advancing step of civilization AYc devote considerable space this week to extracts from other journals, on Arizona and her resour ces, all of which arc interesting and instructive. It was but a few years since that cur Tenitory was the habitation of the murderous aud treacherous Apaches, and nov the sound of the steam whistle echo ing among.our mountains, is hoard. All of this lias been done by the hardy miner, w ell knowing that within her bounds were mines of great wealth and permanence. These articles help to build up our coun try, and when written without prej udice, will insure to our credit. A LETTER FROM TIP TOP. - 0rriiioo,lnc to tit UentUl. f;i!j.KTT. July 27, 1S7S. After a depression consequent on the shutting down of the mill, our town is again gladdened by the sound of the stumps. After sink ing ahont 40 feet and drifting- 135 feet the1 reached the main channel of the A gun Fria and now have plenty of water which will doubt less be permanent. The mill is running on higher grade ore than ever before, and the shipments of the coming month will force the doubting Thomases to ac knowledge the richness a.-.ej pernia-liem-v of' our iniiies. ' , The Tip-Top at the bi.ttom of the winze, the deepest poin' r ached has a vein of over five feet, with about two feet of tha richest ore yet discovered in the mine. The dis play of bl-;ck sulphurets and ruby silver is hiazzliiM, and the ore is in creasing in richness at all points where work is bing done. The connections between the different shafts are nearly completed, when it will be thoroughly ventilated. A main working shaft has been com menced and will be pushed ahead with energy. About 100 men are now employed and soon qiite a number more will be put on. The t oy is looking better than ever and it is said that iu a ehort time a lar ger forca will be employed there. ' The outside claims are looking well. Messrs Barnuin, Brouson & Co have about ten tens of ore at the mill, which, it is said, will go $500 cr ? COO to the ton. The Sev-c.itv-six is taking out very rich ore, and the Hector is producing larger quantities than ever.' Judge Walsh, ut 1 ule ereek, is pushing the work on his mines, and taking out tons of the precious metal. The start ing of the mill is opening a new era of prosperity to us and business in consequence is improving. The faces which have been looking blue and down cast, are now jubilant, and every one is sanguine of the future. We arc gladdened with plenty of your Salt Biycr Vnllev products, es pecially the luscious melons, peaches and grapes. Send them along snd we will furnish yon a mar ket for them. Wilkes.
