THE Southern Pacific RAILROAD Has already been of inesti mable benefit to Arizona. 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.

Editok Herald : An important mining transaction took place here on Monday which is of considerable interest, in the fact of its being a new departure from the method usually followed. This was the incorpora tion by local capitalists and business men of the Arizona and Louisiana Milling Company, for the working and developing of their lately acquir ed property, the "American Flag" series of mines in the Santa Catalina mountains, some forty-five miles southeast of here. The capital is $.,000,000, with 100,000 shares ol stock of $30 each. The company will commence oper ttions at once upon these mines, which have obtained considerable prominence from the large bodies of rich ore and the favorable "prospects" as to their extent and permanency. They will erect machinery in a short lime, and eventually carry on exten- ive milling operations in the Cata lina districts, where they have several other promising and valuable proper ties. The trustees of the com nan v arc Messrs. M. A. Baldwin, James Coll ingwood, lion. Granville II. Oury, Hon. J. 1). Walker, of Florence, and A. 11. Seelye, of Xew Oilcans, with the following named ollieers: Jos. Collingwood, president; Jos. Colling- wood & Co., treasurers; John J. De fine, secretary ; G. II. Oury, attorney; M. A. BaUhviu, superintendent. The fact that our leading business men, conversant with mining matters, have organized themselves into a com pany to develop this property, cer tainly speaks well for these mines and carries an assurance as to the success and merits of the undertaking. The works of the " Isabella com pany," in the Globe district, have be- uu operations. The superintendent reports working twenty men on the mine. Fine bodies of ore on Mineral Hill have been opened up; also on the Lost Cause" mine. These are new developments. They certainly show finely. Some fine ore Is being taken out from a surface drift on the " Happy Ja-jk." The shaft on this mine is fifty feet, and the ore has doubled in value in the last few feet. The com pany propose crowding developments as rapidly as they as they reasonably can. The mines are looking very promising. The ladies here are preparing for jolly nice times during the holidays, and have made arrangements for a Christmas tree, with refreshments, theatricals and dancing at the pavil lion at the Cosmopolitan hotel for Christinas eve and a grand masquer ade ball on Christmas night. There has not been a week passed since to il weather has set in but what there has been one or more balls or social en tertainments here, and so we manage to pass the time most pleasantly away- Gen. J. D. Williamson, the land commissioner, is expected here in a few clays from San Francisco. Governor Fremont is also expected here about the same time. Some of our citizens propose pay ing Phenix a visit about Christmas time. Your correspondent bespeaks for them a welcome reception. W e miss from among us the pleas ant presence of our genial and popu lar young friend, Matt Larkin, wh has concluded to again " cast his line in the pleasant places" of Phenix. The fine residence recently erected by our public spirited citizen, Jos. Collingwood, has now been made complete by the addition of a fine, large veranda around it The resi dence is a large and handsome struc ture, and with its furnishings, is one of the costliest and most complete houses in the territory. It. " WlHies" on His Travels Xotes or Interest. Flouexce, December 4, 18TS. Editor Heiiald: After leaving your beautiful town we traveled up the valley of Salt river, amusing our selves with, shooting quails, rabbits, etc. At camping time we found our selves in the middle of the desert, and laid ourselves down to listen to the gentle voice ot the coyote and the music of a couple of Mexican burros. Iu the morning wc found ice three fourths of an inch thick in the buck ets, and as a consequence there were gathered around the camp fire quite a number of very cross, ill-natured individuals. The monotony was re lieved by one of the party suddenly Cicluimiug, " Eureka," and seizing a quart liottlc (it had been used to hold vinegar) and striking out through the mesquit bushes. On looking atten tively in that direction we saw a Mex ican camp In the distance. After some time our friend returned and brought with him the aforesaid bottle filled with what he said was a sover eign Mexican medicine, produced from planU indigenous to the soil. The name of the mixture, according to our best recollection, was "mescal." Leaving camp we journeyed on acros the desert, past an old deserted ranche, to the Gila at Sacaton, and thence up the river to this point. It is worthy of remark that the fields and surroundings of the Pimas, through their reservation, presents a favorable contrast to any Mexican farming your correspondent litis seen in this territory or Xew Mexico. Their children looked neater and brighter than a large class that can be found in certain quarter of almost any Arizona town. At Adamsvillc is a mill turning out first-class flour; also an urbane indi vidual who presides ver a counter and dispenses the article which che?rs the inner man. Florence is a well-built, adobe town, presenting more an American than Mexican ajipearancc. On arriv ing an hour or two of perambulation brought us in contact with Charley Palmer, an old-time Pacific coast friend, who rejoices in aldcrmanic proportions and ministers to the wants of the thirsty w ith an air peculiarly his own. We also met the redoubt able General Phil. Kolhegcr, well known from Australia through the length and breadth of the Pacific slope. Wc found him sick, but he brightened up and was soon able to tell some of his original yarns. Should you or auy of your readers visit this portion of the country and chance to meet the General, it is ne cessary that you should be impressed with the fact that implicit faith must be given to all of his stories. The county is just now agitated over the result of the election. As usual the defeated candidates cry fraud and a special term of the dis trict court is talked of. A strong ef fort seems to be made to prevent Col. liuggles, the treasurer elect, from re ceiving the ccri.icate, but it wil doubtless fail. The whole matter seems the effect of personal malice, and will probably recoil upon the heads of the movers in the matter. On the whole Florence is a tpuiot, pleasant place, surrounded by a good agricultural country and doing good business with the mines at Picket Post, McMillenvllle, Globe and the King. A trip to Picket Post, a distance of thirty miles, repaid the trouble. There is quite an activity in the working of mines there. Our observation show ed the following results: The Silver Shield, worked in two places, shows a four-foot vein, and assays from :J00 to $1,180. The Silverdo, with a shaft 20 feet and 5-foot vein, assays from 500 to 2,500 dollars. The Bel cher seems to be an immense mass of ore rather than a well defined vein as yet. The Eureka is down 80 or 00 feet, with a fine vein and rich ore in the bottom. In the Arco they have just struck the ledge in their tunnel at a distance of 115 feet, showing a good ledge and plenty of rich ore. The Belle has suspended work for the present. There are many othermiucs we had no time to visit, and which arc doubtless worthy of mention. The town or camp contains about two hundred inhabitant. There are four mills in operation: The King mill, 10 stamps; the Baldwin, 5 stamps; the 'iu, a stamps, anu tue Benson & Stout, 2 stamps and pans. In conclusion I would say that the water here does not seem to be as un healthy as ut your place. It wouid doubtless be fair to say that your cor respondent has not personally tried the water yet he confines himself to weak tea. Wilkes. Gov. Emery, of Utah, in his annual report recommends that provision be made for the selection of jurors in that territory in precisely the same manner as in states of the union. As matters now stand, he says, legisla ture by congress is so hampered by territorial legislation as to render con victiou in certain cases almost im possible. In the next place he recom mends that woman sutfiairc in the territory should be alxished, and 1 polygamy iu the territory should be made by act of congress a continuing j olletice, based on cohabitation rather than the marriage ceremony, as now provided bj the United States law. The Montana legislature elect is composed of eight democrats and five republicans in the council, and nine teen democrats and seven republicans ia the house. FKO.tl PICKET POST. The 3Iines Their Richness Ott er Items. Picket Post, Dec. C, 1878. Editor Herald : A few days since your correspondent, acting on the old adage " to see is to believe," started on a tour of inspection to the mineral belt fringing the foothills lying near this post. One hour and thirty min utes walk, and we were at the Eureka mine, distant from this point about four aad one-half miles, where we heard and saw the following: The Eureka mine was located by Jno. Butts and Mrs. S. J. Whitlow, January 18, 1870. In the month of Juue, 1878, work for its development was commenced in earnest Col. Roys, superintendent of the " Upper mill," recently purchased Mr. "Wheel er's half interest in said mine for the sum of ten thousand dollars. Fifty tons of ore has been reduced averag ing in value, in a concentrated state, from sixteen hundred to three thous and six hundred and seventy dollars per ton. The average of ore at the dump is about two hundred dollars per ton. They are now running a 100 foot level, and sinking a winze to connec t the 50 and 100 foot levels, which is carrying down about four feet of pay ore, and increasing ia riches as the- descend. Thus far this mine has about paid expenses of operating. The present expenses are about fifty dollars per day. The wall at the stul'acc is 18 inches, and at the depth of 100 feet it increases to about 12 feet without any apparent break in it. Good. miners regard it as a "true fissure." In this belt of about thirty miles in length, may be traced the croppings of the precious metals, every foot of which is located and named respec tively: Mary Ellen, Savage, Bell, Sil ver I mice, Jjureka, GooUcnougu, Sadd'crock, Belcher, Crown Point, Orcho, Manhatten, Cottonwood, Bella Dona, &c, ic. Wo.k on many of these mines is being rushed, and some are now producing paying ores. Should the editor of the Herald chance to visit the Eureka, he will re ccivc kindly treatment from the gen tlemanly proprietors and courteous workmen. A remarkably rich strike has been made near the S:lver King, of which particulars ne::t week when we expect to visit the new bonanza. Picket Posi is preparing for a grand Christmas tree entertainment in be half of the Sabbath school. All are expecling to participate. Stone fc Benson are now fitting up stamps for their mill. Mr. Stone owns a one-half interest in a mine ad joining the Eureka, which he thinks will supply their mill with ore. A new phys'eiau has located here. Strangers are accumulating, and the camp is lively. Hotels are crowd ed, and good order prevails. A literary society is spoken of, and a clay school is in session. Divine service is held every Sab bath. Yours, Script. Conncetion 11 ith the Southern Says the Pueblo (Col.) Chieftain : Mr. Vk. R. Morley, who has had charge of the preliminary survey of the New Mexico and Southern Paci fic branch of ihc Atchison, Topcka and Santa Fe railroad, from Trinidad to Fort Yuma, gives us some interest ing points regarding the work. The line will be an exceedingly easy one to construct, there being few grades beyond Albuquerque to exceed forty feet to the mile, and most of them not over twenty feet The country through which the line runs is mostly mining and pastoral, with but a small area suitable for agricultural purposes. The general appearance of the coun try is similar to that of Southern Col orado, but there is less water. The Southern Pacific railroad company will be likely to extend their roud during the coming winter cast as far as Maricopa Wells, one hundred and sixty-five miles from Fort Yuma, and possibly to Tucson, a distance of two hundred and tifly miles. That com pany is in good financial condition and able to push forward to meet the Atchison, Topcka and Santa Fc at any time. The following are the distances be tween the principal points on tho route: Trinidad ta Vegas 180 utiles, Vegas to Albuquerque 115 utiles, Al buquerque to Tucson i31 miles, or in all from Trinidad to Fort Yuintt 920 miles. The Hntrkrye says: Probably t!:e best way to get a stop to this grave robbery business would be, in every case where a grave is rilled, to fill the vacancy promptly with a medical student.
