On the southern UeMion he admits j that his policy has heeu a failure, and take extreme ground, but suggests I no legislation.

Before comencing a trip through Arizona, which business compelled me to perforin, I had read several w r'is touching upon its resources, mineral wealth, etc., and 1 was struck with the want of detail contained there in upon many points of interest to the S 'ckcr of inormation, and, indecd,oiie could hardly expect in a general de scription of so large a territory any. thhig else. The mineral wealth of "a country is naturally of great interest to miners ami those interested in mines. To the agriculturist, a de scription of the agricultural resources a ! -'fl!" ;uc,ami i uicrciore pro- tile data of a vest agricultural portion and the only tori ion developed in fact, in this part ol the territory of Arizona. The town of Phenix is pleasantly lo cated in the Salt Uiver Valley, w irh a plentiful supply of soft water derived from Salt Uiver" a tributary of the Gila rivdr. It contains alxuit l.Dlli) in. habitants, of whom about one third tire .Mexicans. At the last election. ovembcroth, JWI votes were polled.

There are f urtceii mercantile houses, all iii a prosperous condition ; three livery stables; five blacksmiths' end wagon maker ' .-heps; three carpenters' and cabin! maker?' shops; two drug stores; six distinguished lawyers to deeide upon llie pros and cons of society; four esciihipiaus, and a refreshing a'h senee of any pre Jonderanee of sa loons. The settlement ol Salt Biver Valley, including the Tempi- portion, commenced uImiuI lrj(!S. The average width of the valley i.- 8 miles by 40 miles long. It extends from the mouth of the Agua Fria, at its junction m ith the IJila, in an easterly direction To a point at the junction of the Salt and Verde rivers. A reference to an ordi nary map will show the points. The acreage under cultivation la.-t year yielded about r-,(HH.(l(H pounds in grain, ol w hich 2,VJ'.l,tltM was w heat, and o.oiKl.lM)') barley. The land yields from SltnW bushels of wheat per acre, and from i't to ol barley. There are three (louring mills in the valley. The principle rains com. luence in December, and continue un til the end of February. Crops are put in from Xovemlier'lst to .Marc h 1st. The summer rains are in July and Augn-t. Crops of beans and po latocs can be planted in March; and beans and corn can also be planted from the Huh of . I une to the first of July. The rains of July and August benefit corn, sorghum, sweet potatoes and lieans, which are harvested in (etober. In fact, there is not a crop of either cereals or esculents that can. not be grown in this part of Arizona, and arrive at equal perfection as in California. Grapes, peaches, apricots, almonds and tigs seem to be indige nous, for their growth and perfection are unsurpassed. The market for cereals is. compara tively speaking, close at hand. The outlets for all productions arc the mil itary posts, the mining regions of the surrounding country ami the large consumption or barley by freight teams, and the more than paying prices received offer to the farmer greater in ducement to cultivate than can ever occur, perhaps, iu more favored lo calities. There can be no fear of failure of crops by reason of drouth as the fol lowing will show-. A system of can als or ditches exists, the source of wa ter being the Salt River, which is brought to bear upon the land by the aforesaid means. There is a main trunk of 2.1 miles, which extends its branches in all directions. This trunk has a breadth of bottom of 2o feet, with a grade of two fei t to the mile, which is calculated to carry lO.OOO miners' inches. The water is soht to farmers al ?.r0 per inch, per'annum. One hundred inches is abundance for HiO acres of land. The principle portion of the valley land is sandy loam, interspersed with adobe- To the northwest of Phenix is a considerable quantity of land that can l;e pre-empted under the romp stead act. ami will come within the limits of the Grand Canal. Oats and allalfa grow luxuriantly. Rarley'is worth 2-2c; wheat 2c. As an illustration of the advantages of industry, I would state that grain grown by the Indians, (Maricopa I and Punas) commands a higher price ,!,., t,.lt i,r()Wn lv either Americans or Mexicans. 15y careful nttenti on wheat, especially harvested by In dians, is fuller and heavier, and the ei icriAmns always buy it for seeding, and pay n higher pric:; th:in they ') tained far their own, the offspring of the Indians' production.
