It has reduced the cost of transportation very mate rially, and lessened the time of receiving goods at least one half, besides add ing greatly to the comfort and facility of travelling. With this record in the past, the prospect of a speedy extension of the same into the Territory is very encouraging for the future, as it will add very much to the prosperity and wealth of the whole coun try. IRVINE h G! Have taken advantage of the quick and cheap tran sit of merchandise, and ai-e constantly receiving new goods, which they are sell ing very cheap. They have just received an assortment of Plows, Iloes, Rakes, Picks, Scytke, Shovcl3, And other Agricultural in struments. A few set of Ilarness, Lines, Bridles, &c, Also, Hardware,Tinware, etc., including a few Cook ing btoves and Ranges. Blankets, Flannels, and other Dry Goods and Clothing, for winter use.

Adobe and lumber have their respective merits for building purposes, and many a neaV. house of the latter stands out in strik ing contrast with the more sombre buildings of the former. E.

The Stonewall Jackson mine con tinues to improve. Work on a 1,009-fooi shaft for the General Lee mine will shortly be commenced. Altitudes: Pinal mountains, 3,02.') feet; Pinal creek, 3,112 feet ; Picket Post, 2,600 feet. A stage line, now running from Tucson to Arivaea, is to be extended soon to Altar, Sonora. John II. Pierson has been appoint ed postmaster of Antelope valley, Yavapai county, Arizona. The name of Hon. Milton W. Stew art is presented by the Star for the speakership of the house of represent atives. The Hilt says: It is reported that Archie Mcintosh, of Grapevine Spring, on Salt river, was recently killed by a squaw. The case of J. C Loss, indicted for manslaughter of J. C. Hobinson, has been continued until next term in the district court in Florence. The Arivaea mill, near Tucson.will commence crushing ore on January 1st. The mines in tho district give promise of great richness. Passenger travel into Arizona is fast increasing. The. impetus lately given to railroad progress haa induc ed many new people to come. I). 15. Pea & Company have sold five mines in Mule Pass, Pima coun ty, to E. A. C'orbin & Company, of Philadelphia, at handsome figures. XciitinH: Yuma county is growing richer at the rate of sJG.OOO per day ; that isalHitit the rate per mile at which railroads are assessed. Prosperity? On the morning of the 24th of No vember, an unsuccessful attempt was made to set fire to the large mercan tile establishments of Lord it Wil liams and Jackeudorf & Co. The report of the teachers of the public sdhool of Tucson district for November, shows that there are 143 boys and 70 girls in attendance, mak ing a total of 212. A register of mining men is kept at the oflice of The Engineer of the Pa cific, No. 507 Montgomery St., San Francisco. Nw arrivals from Ariz ona are requested to register their names for the convenience of their friends. Mr. J. B. Hume, detective for Wells, Fargo tfc Co., and Mr. Paul, arrested two men on November 28, in the low er part of Thompson valley, upon the charge of stopping the stage on No vember 11th, between Kelsey's and Gilson's. Iramns are becoming a nuisance in Yuma big, lusty fellows who wil not work. They manage to " beat" their way out here on construction trains. There will soon lc enough here to hold sand lot meetings. The Chinese must go! The residents of Globcdistrict have circulated a petition, which has been generally signed, asking the author ities at Washington for another slice of the Sau Carlos Indian reservation. The part asked for is entirely mineral aud of no benefit to the Indians. Gov. Fremont pardoned Jesus Mo. lina, Nov. 20. Molina was convicted at the October term, 1S77, of the Di trict court of Pima county, of the crime of murder in the second degree aud sentenced for the term of twelve years in the Territorial penitentiary. Thanksgiving was quite generally observed in Tucson. There were services at eleven o'clock in morning under the auspices of the Presbyteri an church. All places of business were closed at noon and the remainder of the day given up to pleasure and festivities. Governor Fremont has ofl'crcd a re. ward of $-"00 for the arrest and deten tion of Louis Hotidcpoach and John Mullen, who robbed the Unitid States mail, near Wh kenburg, Arizona, on lfllh of last April. For the npprehen sion of either one of the robbers S250 will be paid. Ilosalio Coloma, Manuel Lucero, Madaleno Caldaronand Juan Sedillo, indicted at the June, 1878, term of the district court, for the killing of one Peter Clanton, a desperado, at St Johns, in October, 1S77, have all been acquitted of the crimes as charged iu the indictment. Arrangements have been made to establish a bank iu Tucson and will lie opened as soon as a proper building, safe, etc. arc provided. Th chief promoters of this enterprise are Gov. Safloid, Mayor Took, John Wasson and Chas. Hudson. The bank will be under the management of Mr. Hudson. The last Yavapai county wamint issued was numltereil 250. The last number redeemed is 94, issued April, 1877. The warrants issued by the board the first Monday in January, 1870, for services during the term of court now being held, will probably 1ms paid within eighteeu or twenty months from present date. It is a great pity, if not a disgrace to the territory of Arizona that the San Xavier church property, that an cient relic, more valuable than any other within our borders, should be allowed to go to waste and decay, as it is now dolii. The walls should be strengthened and other precaution ary measures taken to preserve the pro pert j Hopeful accounts from the Mc Crackin country are coming in. Fif teen men arc at work in the mine, making openings for getting at the ore-body north of the old works. Stronaeh, the superintendent, has gone to San Francisco to confer with the trustees. He expects to be mill ing ore aain by February 1st. The Pueblo Viejo valley is asking to be set off as a new count. We think the movement will find no op position in Pima county. It is a rich and growing country, particularly in agriculture, and its citizens are men who deserve every encouragement at the hands of the legislature, provided they present their claims in a manner satisfactory to all, which wc have no doubt they will do. A very rich strike is reported in the bottom of the old shaft on the Cerro Colorado mine. Some specimens have been taken out which assay as high as $10,000 to $12,000 per ton. The Aravaea mining company have for some time been engaged in pnmp- ing the water out of this old shaft and now they arc rewarded by the discov ery of a body of very high grade ore at a depth of 212 feet. Citizen: A recent letter from one of the most reliable men of Prescott savs: "A'protest was filed with the Supervisors oi Y'avapai county prior to canvassing the vote in that county against counting of the vote ofSpring- erville precinct. An affidavit of a reli able man was filed and showed that of the votes polled Campbell could not have received more than eight or ten ; that at said precinct Woolsey received 41 votes while only 12 were counted for him, and that the ballot box was taken away from the polling place by one of the judges and kept away by him over an hour. We understand that at last some thing is to be done to open an Arizona mine on the Comstock principle deep shafts and extensive under ground workings. Arrangements have been perfected and the machin ery and timl)er purchased to sink a shaft down 1000 feet ou the Silver King mine. The shaft is to be a per fect working shaft with three compart ments, and in even- appointment is to be after the new Kcqua shaft on the Comstock. The deepest workings now on the Kingare less than 300 feeti where now the incline ends. The idea is to start the shaft at the base of the hill, arid at 1000 feet, drift for the magnificent ledge making down from the foot of the incline. With this improvement the old King ought to show tip richer treas ures than ever before and be able to extract them iu a miner! ike way and upon an economical basis. Stock lie- port. The grand jury of Pinal county havc found two indictments, one for manslaughter and one for attempt to commit murder. In the case of the territory vs. Mrs. E. A. Jones, the' recommend that it be held over for the next grand jury, owing to the ab sence of some material witnesses. The committee on public buildings recommend measures be taken to complete the court house. The books in the sheriff's office were found cor rect, and the construction of a secure jail wtis recommended. The prison. ers were found to have been well treated. The offices of the treas urer, recorder and probate judge were found correct. The following report was made on the ruins in Pinal county: The "Casa Grade" is the oldest ruin within the jurisdiction of the United States. The said ruin is falling to decay, and iu imminent danger of being destroyed by treasure seekers and others. We recommend that the secretary of the interior (the legal guardian of the public domain of the I'uited Slates) take possession of the said ruin, and we also recom mend that an appropriation be made by the Congress of the United States of the sum of $10,000, for the protec tion and restoration of said ruin as a ' memento of the piast. The Heart of Arizona, To those who have learned to look on Arizona as a country destitute of timber and embellished chiefly hj thorns and cacti, it will he a pleasant surprise to hear of the great variety aud Iwauty of timber and vegetation found in those parts of the territory which arc blessed by a copious rain fall. One of the most attractive of these parts is that lying between Verde and Apache and at the south era edge of the great pine-clad Mogol loncs Mesa. This mesa underlies a pine forest of considerable width and several hundred miles long. Its pines appeared to us to be of some variety between yellow and sugar pine; the wood is soft and splits well into very fair shakes ; the-' are of as fine a growth as any pines wc ever saw " down east." On the mesa and south of it are found firs eight feet in di ameter, magnificent trees; quaking poplar (asp), in moist places, eighteen inches to two feet through, running up eighty and one hundred feet with out a limb, straight as an arrow and with bark as white as if painted; reg ular white oak of considerable size, of fine bole and lovely foliage; Emory's oak, a dark evergreen peculiar to Arizona and differing from the live oak of California, on whose lower fo liage horses are particularly fond of browsing, and which is quite familiar to every one who has traversed the country south of Tucson; juniper trees like those near Prescott, but larger, with trunks five feet through, and lots of them three feet through, and running up many feet without a branch, all the year around dropping berries on which hogs keep fat as they do at Iloudon's ranch in Spring valley in this country wq arc writing about; fine black walnuts, under one of which as much as four grain sacks full of nuts have been gathercd.wltU their graceful light green young fronds and aromatic ordor; syca mores, cotton woods and willows along Uic creeks, that would be subjects for exhibition in any otbtr country; the regular New England rock, or sugar maple, from which sugar will be made and sold this coming spring by Yan kees, who know what tho tree is, and who do not despise trifles or labor; red cedars two feet through and run ning up ten or twelve feet without a branch, enough to make cigar boxes for the whole country ; white ash two feet through and with faultless trunks lor thirty feet from the ground. Such arc some of the trees: found in that bonny part of Arizona. Wild fruits are abundant, but are chiefly berries. Currants of about the size of Isabella grapes grow there like gooseberries, hut thornlcss- June is the month for strawberries. In July come raspber ries thicker than they grow in Michi gan and thick enough to give a red tinge to the shrubbery seen at a little distance. Wild grapes are abundant but of little value. Wild hops make a perfect jungle of the spots they love, aud add much to the charming ap pearance of that country. This sec tion of Arizona is now being settled, as it would have been years ago but for the tenacity with which tho Apaches fought to hold it. What it is now yielding to the eflorts of hu man industry wc shall hereafter try to present clearly to our readers, and such evidence as must silence tho scoffers at Arizona. Arizona Sentinel. Col. Strobrldge, superintendent of the construction of the Southern Pa cific railroad, said to a Sentinel re porter, on Friday, the 30th of Novem ber: " To-night the end of the track will be seven and a half miles from the Colorado river at Yuma. From here to the hills near Gila City tha distance is i.bout seven miles, nearly level. We laid a mile of track yes terday; shall lay a mile to-day and another to-morrow. Can average a mile a day, or more if desired, from here to Maricopa Wells. We are em ploying about two hundred white men, and have over eleven hundred Chinese graders strung along ahead of the track. One camp, of a hun dred, is at work two miles beyond that; and more graders are coining. We are now using about two hundred wagons and carts and about three hundred animals. Says the Trinidad Enterprite : The New Mexico and Southern Pacific Railway company, which is the New Mexican name ot the Atchison, Topc ka and Santa Fe, will be prepared to let contracts for an additional one hundred and fifty miles of grading in about thirty days. Tiik Atchison, Topeka and Sant Fc railroad is building several new locomotives. The business of the road has greatly increased lately. Potatoes from '.lie celebrated Jeff Davis ranch, near Prescott, are soll iii tit $4.50 per hundred pounds, in th.' hitter place.
