The Tucson Star of the 12th has tlie following mining news: Some rich gold mines have recently been discovered in the Iluachuehu mountains. Dr. Strom ami Lietit. Bailey arc among the lucky tines. W. S. Edwards returned on Tues day last from a trip to the California and Swisshelm mining districts; re. ports a splendid show of good paying ore, and the districts present a great deal of activity among the miners. John Swisshelm, Jim Billiard, Hen ry Hcnson and others are at work on their locations in Whitewater Basin, Chiricahua mountains. The Moun tain Queen, Whale, Mammoth and Mountain Chief prospects arc looking well their ore assaying from 112 to ! 430 ounces to the ton. Sheriff Shihell, Al. MeCann and Abe Franklin, accompanied liy Prof. Jauu'S, returned from a week's trip in 1 Aomulone t,llricl." lutw,:l last. The professor examined several minrs in he llistI.k.ti aml ,s vorv f;l. Uorably imprcsseil with what lie saw. As lie represents San Francisco capi- J '"'''''N we !,rc l'leasetl to know his re port will be encouraging. Ben. 'Williams, superintendent of the Han Xavier mines, was iu town this week. He informs us that the main shaft at the 100-foot level shows in cross-cutting, n width of 30 feet of ore of such it character as will leave a handsome margin for working; no waste whatever. He has commenced a working shaft to strike the ore body at alxmt 'JO feet. D. R. Rea is in from the mines and reports everything prosperous at the camp, lie is opening another carbonate ledge that proves richer than anything before discovered in the camp. Ledge matter is fi teea feet wide and Prof. Ricard's assay gives $81 in silver per ton, and 50 per cent lead. Several discoveries of im mense copper ledges have been made recentl' in the same district, which, besides being rich in copper, carry a good working per cent in silver. Sam. Hughes is the owner of the Hope mine, located about twelve miles west of this city, and brought in some rock on Tuesday last from the location, which gave an n-eragc assay of silver to the ton. There arc fifteen to twenty tons of ore on the dump, and the shaft shows aledgc four feet in width of very even qual. lty. The discovery has caused con siderable excitement am-ng mining men. Tombstone Mill Site is now the scene of activity. Houses, shanties and juriih arc going up rapidly, and several families uie now on the ground. A restaurant has been open ed Jy Mr. Ike Clanton. The founda tion of the mill site is being blasted and leveled off to receive the struc ture that is now being rapidly shaped up at the timber and saw-mill camp in the Huachuca mountains. A fine road is being graded from the mill up ! to the mines. The Mormons arc pro gressing finely with the ditch and dam. Rverything connected with this enterprise shows that C'orbiu & Co. mean business, and ere long we may expect to see a genuine silver brick. Several days since Gov. Saflbrd and Mr. Watson, of Connecticut, started from Ttirson on a trill throtlL'h the ! different mining districts. At the Patagonia they were joined by S. Hughes and E X. Taylor, when they visited various sections of the country together, including the Tombstone ilwtrlrr ATna WiitKiui srftmil almost astounded at the si-hts he saw in the l Tombstone, and alter a week's trip the whole party returned to Tucson, ... 1 1 talists in Southern Arizona, being sent here oil a tour of inspection. Gov. S.-tfl'ord and Sam. Hughes did every thing to show the visitor the mining wea'th of our country, and we are glad to learn Mr. Watson is well pleased. . Messrs. A. B. Hopkins and Shoen back brothers came in last week from the Sierratas, south of Tucson about thirty.fi vc miles; they have been look ing after their mining interest out there, where we are pleased to know they are owncrsof a groupof five gold mines, all within a n.dius of one half a mile of each other. The ledges aver age trom one to two and a half feet iu width; the average assay is 53 per per ton, which is excellent for gold; the ledges arc traceable for almost the full length of the claims. These are all old mines and have been exten sively worked in days gone by; some of the shafts arc over one hundred feet deep ; the gulches near by have also been extensively worked. They also make favorable report on the old Picacho min", out of which they have t iken some flue ore; this is another old mine which has a shaft about 200 feet deep; this is a silver mine. They have also recently visit cd their Patagonia property, which gives good results; the O K assays $504 in silver, the Mocking Bird $52 in silver and $25 in gold, the Yellow Jacket $123 in silver, all milling ores and near the old Trench mine. There : is plenty of wood and water adjacent. Mr. Hopkins and his partners feel happy, and when the prospector is happy look out for something good. The Prescott Miner says: A discover- of some very rich silver ledges has in:lc lit or near the headwaters of . m the last six months. Sycamore creek, a tributary of the Gov. A. K.

The ledges arc unalloyed happiness in his marital large and well defined. Says the Yuma Exjx'ttr of the 12th: Mr. Jose Jarez brou -lit in this week from the Copola mine, in this 1 couniv, some of the richest ore we have ever seen, consisting or gold, sil-' ver and copper ore. The mine is very j extensive, the led-e bcin? six feet in i width. It isowncdbyJarcz&Fleish.'Ar'IvaC!l aud Oro Blanco mining dis. man, who will employ a numler of men to take out ore, which will be shinned to San Francisco. AVc are y credibly informed that the ore assays over SiJoO per ton. TERK1TORIAL ITI.3W At about 10 oclock, a. m., on the th inst.. tlie fine dwelling, together with the household etlects, clothing of the family, etc., of Mr. George Banghart, of Chiuo valley, accidentally caught fire from the kitchen stove, aud was in a few minutes entirely consumed. J. C. Stubbs, general freight agent of the Southern Pacific railroad, writes to L. M. Jacobs & Co., of Tuc- son, as toliows: "As you are aware, our road is being extended east of Yuma. Eight miles of track have al ready been laid, and every man that can be employed is being put to work to push it forward w ith the utmost rapidity. I think it reasonably cer- tain that we shall reach Maricopa Wells within tlie next year, and hope that we shall then be able to control all the business of your section at rates which will be mutually satisfac tory to carrier and dealer." !lnr: The Prescott papers are just no- terribly excited over the remoxal of the capital from that place to Phe nix. How would Florence suit you, gentlemen f Miner: Mr. Reed, who is in the in terest of mail contractors, was at Win gate on the night when the 370 ton stack of hay caught fire and burned up. Hp. says it made a big candle, lighting the country for miles around aud never was surpassed except at Chicago during tlie great fire.

The postofiice department has or dered a tri-weekly service on the mail route between Tucson and Altar, Mexico. The service will be put on at once. The Yuma Expoitor of the 12th says: The Atlantic and Pacific Tele graph company, who arc extending their line onward to Tucson, have ul- ready reached Gila City. It is the purpose to keep along with the grad- ing party, and hence its progress 'iH not be more rapid than the location of the railroad line. Upon its com pletion we will then have two sepa rate lines of telegraph to Tucson, the other being the government line and run under the direction of the signal servi - .o. So;nc 40,315 pounds of machinenr for the Tiger mine arrived at Yuma Wednesday, December 11. Sheriff E. F. Bowers, of Yavapai county, has bought the Dudley house and saloon, at Prescott.
