IRVINE & CO. Now that the harvest is nearly over it is ascertain ed beyond a peradventure that the wheat and barley crop in Salt Rivr Valley is large. The Gila Valley usually produces an enor mous quantity of that grain but this year very little has been raised there, ow ing to the lack of water for irrigation. The late abundant rains will insure fodder in the Northern part of the Territory but it has come to l ite for the coin,- so that crop will be nearly a failure this year. This state of affairs in the surrounding country will give- the . farmers of Salt River Valley a market for all their grain at remuner ative prices. Barley has advanced a quarter and wheat half a cent since har vest began, with an up ward tendency. E. IRVINE & GO, Who keep at their old stand on the west side of the plaza being in unison with the best interests of the country, will continue to supply their patrons with an3-thing usually found in a GENERAL MERCHANDISE Store at the very lowest price possible. They do not sell manr times for cost but they sell at such a small advance on cost that all who desire to purchase will Gnd it to their advan tage to go thero and buy. Having purchased the en tire stock of the late firm of A. M. Janes k. Co., they are' prepared to sell many things at San Francisco Prices, Bu)'ers will do well to note this fact and call there and examine this stock before it is all gone, as there are bargains to be had un doubtedly. Powder, Fuse, and Caps for MINERS. a Specialty. Agricultural Implements in in transit for stock and FARMERS. Do not forget the store on the west side of the Plaza with the sign E. IRVINE & GO. A Word of Kindness. How sofilv on the bruised heart A word of kindness falls. And to the dry and parched soul Ihe moist run? tear-drop calls; Oh ! if they knew who walk the earth uid sorrow, erne! ana pain. Tbe power a word of kindness hath, "1 were paraaise again. The weakest and the poorest may 1 he simple pittance give. And bid delight to withered hearts lieturn again ana live ! - Oh ! what is life if love be lost, If man s unkind to man T Or what the heaven that waiU beyond This brief and mortal span ? ' As stars upon tbe tranquil sea, In minute glory shine, So words of kindness in the heart Reflect the source divine. Oh ! then be kind whoe'er thou art That breathes the mortal breath ; And it shall brighten all thy life, And sweeten even death. AKIZO.YA ITEMS. The following petition is now be ing circulated throughout the Terri tory to the Congress of the United StuVs: The undersigned, citizens of the Territory of Arizona, beg respectful ly to represent that the coaches bearing the United State mails lire continually lobbed in this territory and el.ewlier.-, to the disgrace of the nation and detriment of its citizens We therefore beg to petition that the Pustmaster General of the Unit ed Stat' be authorized to employ a "Postal Guard" of sufficient num ber and with adequate armament to protect the mails of the Uuited States wherever they are cairied, with authority to kill and destroy any person or persons who may molest them. 1 hat the expense of maintaining said "postal guard' may be paid out of the revenue of the Post 'Office Department and that its organization mav be regulated bv the Postmaster General of the Unit ed States. Star: Col. Lewis, a practical miner and geologist, who bas oper ated in all Hi' laming states on the 1 acme Unast, tics relumed tiotu a tour of iiispeciiou of the Tomb stone district. He B'lya he neve, before aw so much mineral wealth, ana believes that the district will prove by development to be the uiot profitable ever discovered on the Pacific Coast. This is a broad assertion, but the field is open to the inspection of all, and interested parties of exp -lience can see for themselves. There is nothing kept back. The ore is on th'' dumps at several shafts, and more is being taken out daily, and besides, the surface indications nr3 before them. In proof of our assertions in refer ence to the richness of the develop ed mnies. nil we ask is for practi cal miners to give the district a per sonal inspection. Entqrprisc; Tom Waters,, a sa loon keeper at the Peck mine, and Murphy, a miner, became involved in a dispute relative to a division of some money which Murphy had won at poker the night before with a stake given him by Waters Tbe latter called Murphy a "thieving sou of a b " and both pulled at the same time, and turned loose. Waters received a flesh wound iQ the shoulder ; a ball from his pis tol struck the cylinder of Murphy's revolver and split, half of it going through Murphy'r) right sleeve. Five shot were fired, when both pistols, refused to revolve, and Wa tt-rs struck his opponent over the head with his, and the deputy sher- iff stepped in and f-tnpped the row. The following contracts for flour have been awarded by Capt. Chas. P. Eagan, Chief 0. S., under his advertisement, of Juue 10, 1878: Camp McDowell-20.0000 pounds at 3.38 cts., to C. T. Hayden. Camp Verde 35,000 pounds, at 4.97 cts. to C. T. Hayden. Ft. Whipple 35.000 pouuds, at 4.97 cts., to C. T. Hayden. Camp Grant 10,000 pounds, at 6.25 cts., to Samuel Katzensteiu. Camp lIuachuca-40,000 pounds at 6.99 cts., to Samuel Katzenstein, Camp Thomas 15,000 pounds, at 6.10 cts., to Chas. Lesinsky. Camp Bowie 35,000 pounds, at S.37 cts., Chas. Lesinsky. Miner : A handsome baker was going along Montezuma street with his arms tull of bread ; and sur mounting the latter there was a Lirge, hard. Ions sausage. One of the loaves of bread descended to mother earth, whereupon the child of dough stooped down to try to pick it up, which caused him to drop the sausage, too. Being a German, he exclaimed : "Veighn I drop die broad dat vas bod, but veighn I lose him lausagc, dat vas bad zu worst." Sentitwh The arrival here of a single shipment of over 100,000 pounds of salt for the Ilackbcrry quartz mill, shipped by rail from San i rancisco, is not an altogether pleasant thing to contemplate. Of course the railroad company deliv ers it at a price that benefits the quartz-mill, and to that extent bene fits the country. But on the other hand this competition shuts out a large number of men and teams which were developing the great rock-salt mines of the Virgin and Muddy, and to that extent injures the country. Ox teams have no chance to compete with a railroad and steamboat that cirries salt over 1,000 miles for less than one cent per pound. If other goods were brought into Arizona at the same rates, then indeed could our joy be unmixed. But there are two ways of looking at this salt business. Sentinel : Prescott freight is like ly to lake a new route from Yu ma. Several freighters have offered to haul from there to Prescott at 6 to 7 cents per pound, and tor less as the roads get packed, or grain gets cheaper. At present that freight goes from Ehrcnberg at 4J to 5 cents per pound, and from l uma to Ehren berg by steamboat at S20 per ton, measurement, equivalent to Ij to 2 cents per ound weight. I be pro position is to go by way of Burke's and Wickchburg, bringing lumber to Phenix and getting cheap grain there on return trip. This last can not be done on the Ehreuberg road. As the railroad progresses up the Gil t this new route will be adopted anyhow, freight being delivered to teams at new depots. Sentinel: Truman did not come out here, after all, to investigate mail matters; and wc are glad of it, for he perhaps would have done no work heavier than hunting shade. Prehaps the P. 0. Department thought so too; a man has been sent out who has fewer political patrons, but who is willing to work. Un fortunately his efforts are to be chiefly directed toward detection of robbers; he therefore requests that his name and destination be not made public. But Arizona can still hope that live Agents may yet ba appointed, who will look after mail abuses quite as intolerable as robberies. Miner A meeting of the cred itors of the estate of S. C. Miller Jc Co., was lately held. The accoun's of T. J. Butler, assignee, were pre sented, audited and allowed, show ing cash balance on hand of S2, 7U0 23. Amount received by the estate was S6.560 69. Amount, dis bursed by assignee, in settling up estate, $3,7(37 51, leaving balance as hist stated. A dividend ot 3 I per cent, was declared to the credit ors. Indebtedness against the es tate to the amount of $45,560 02 has been provcu. Miner: From present indications the count' y about the Tiger mine w'dl, within the ensuing six months, have three mills in active operation. The mill for the Orr Bouito mine is on its way ; Mr. Helm, the super intendent of the Tiger, has gone to San Francisco to arrange for the erection of a mill for that mine, with every assurance of success ; and the immediate erection of a mill upon the Gray Eagle mine is almost a certainty. 3finer: A "hasty bowl of soup" looking individual, with a horse at the end of a riata, threw open the dining room door, this noon, at the Bon Ton restaurant and inquired in a stentorian tone of voice. "Can I get dinner h-re in two hours ?" "Well," said thu Japanese propri etor very politely, "we have only three mt.-n here to wait on the table, but I think we can bring you out all we have in that time." Miner: Davis will carry Mohave county by a large majority. Wool scy will c.irry Marie p x, Pinal and Yuma. He will come into Yava pai ahead of Campbell 700 votes, and lead Steveus and Davis about 500. He will stand either of the other candidates off in Yavapai and beat Campbell jn Prescott. That's what's the matter with Hannah. Expositor ; A specia3 of wild cat was killed in the cottonwood grove twelve miles above Yuma, several days ago. It had a long tail, a double set of ears and measured three feet two inches from tip of noe to end t f tail. Its skin is a matter of great cursosity to all who examine it. The arrangements for the con struction of a telegraph line from Tucson to Arivaca are completed, and work will shortly be commenc ed. It will cost about $5,000. The Governor of Sonora is prepared ti commence building a connecting line from Giuymas. thereby giving direct communication with the city of Mexico. A soon as the. Atchison, Topck.i & Santa Fe railroad is built we'd into New Mexico, Messrs. H. Lesin sky & Co., of the Clifiou copper mines, will guarantee it 4,000. 00O pounds of freight per annum; thre going out and one coming in from their business alone. The new hotel of Fred William, at Prescott, is two stories high. 04 , feet long and 35 feet wide. It ! to have about 30 sleeping rooms, besides a parlor, sitting uroni. etc The building looms above all othrr-i and is ai instiuiiou much ncedel in Prescott. Picket Post has four roercanlix establishments, two hotels, and sa loons without number. Thrc quartz mills arc in active operation. Subscriptions are being raised t build a school house. Fifty-seven recruits left Omaht on the 6th of this month under Lt. Rhodes, Eighth Cavalry, for dis tribution in Arizona. Yavapai and Mohave conntici shipped during the month of Au gust, to San Francisco, in silver bul lion, 8160,000. The Department at Washington has telcerauhed Gov Aovt to r- main until the arrival of Gen. Fre mont. Parties are still pursuing the mur derers of Adams and Finley, and with good prospects of success.
