JIareh 5. 179. 1'IXAL ( OIXTV, Infarmaiion Iteeardiiis the Towns, Its Mines and Farms. Florenc e, February 14, 18T9. i AVhile Phenix, as I stated in my I last "notes," is the centre of a lanre j and growingagricultural section, and ! .neseat 01 government. 01 .uaneopa ; thU ,)0rtion of Arizona, and bo county, so Florence is the centre of a j trouble is CTer experienced by no rich and imoortant mining country mal,s m gI..lzirJ!r tuelr 6tock, or of il and the county seat of Pinal county, j IuniinntioI1 this weird country ritU Florence is about CO odd miles, iu j Ur jolliest of midnight fires. In a a straight di-eetion, from Phenix ; ft.w vear3 the yU,, j of vegetable .com but the man who goes from Phenix j alu, smM right -m and arountl to Florence by stage must travel 80; , Florcncei supply the demand as the regular mail stage route is by j fr()m a of the mining districU irt way of Maricopa Wells. Florence j proxilni,y thereto. There are what was "started" about ten years ago, j m.,y be termed two railiy ieas0n and is so called after a sister of Gov- ; lhis section of ArIzona. ernor R. C. jlcConmck, Avhose lion- ored name is a liouselioul word in Arizona. While Florence is, to a great extent, elevated to the dignity of a town through ils proximity to a nnm.bcr of wonderful mines, it is also surrounded by many hundreds of acres of excellent larming lands, all of which may be irrigated by waters from the Gila. Tle houses are all built ot adobe but present a better appearance than adobe houses generally do. The streets are laid out at right angles, and most of the thoroughfares arc shaded by trees that were planted or set out simultaneous with the com niencement of building. There is one good hotel, three or four boarding houses, and several stores. The United Stales Land Oilice for South ern Arizona is located at Florence, and the place contains at least 500 in habitants. The climate is much the same as that of Phenix and the Salt Hiver country, except that the cli. male of the Gila river country is a little more equable, if anything, than ! tIl:lt of tUliVi,st plains watered by the : Salinas. ! THE JIIXlSC DISTKKTS ADJACENT TO FLORENCE. I rennik above that Florence is in the heart of a wonderful mining country. So it is so far as is at pres ent developed ; and I doubt not that the discoveries yet to be made will astonish the coast. The famous Sil ver King mine, owened in great part by Colonel James M. Barney, is near Florence. This mine is one of the wonders of Arizona. For many months the Silver King has produced all the way from 75,000 to nearly $100,000 a month with ten stamps. I sav while here 100,000 pounds of con centrations that have since assayed r early 20,000. There is also a fine piece of property called the Redeem er mine. There are two mills rimnrng night and day is this particular'loeul- it", and enough is on the dumps io keep the two mills with their fifteen stamps running for at least a ycar from the present time. There are on an average twenty men engaged in taking out ore from the Silver King, and enough is taken out to keep foity stamps iu constant operation.1 Just befoie arriving at the Silver King mine is a place called Picket Post, which may prove a formidable rival to Florence at no distant day. THE GLOBE DI STRICT. Further on over the mountains from Florenc e, King and Picket Post is an amazingly rich district called the Globe. Here quite a settlement has sprung up, and the people are as or- j in any mining or agricultural town in California. Among the most prom-; ! inent, mines in this locality are the Silver Nuggctt mine, the Imperial Stonewall Jackson, and many others of lesser note. Near the Globe dis trict is mineral creek, showing a very Jarge number of good leads. A little way from Picket Post is another lich district, with any o.uantity of paying mines. There is one, called !he Union West, down nearly a hundred feet in. to rock at limes so rich that it cannot be crushed. There is a smali mill of five stamps in operation here. There are a number of mines in this locali ty paying their way in milling ore while developments arc going on This is only a brief outline of min ing and milling operations in a por tion of Arizona near which the Southern Pacific Railroad will soon penetrate. This brief outline, how ever, shows a degree of industry, en terprise and confidence on the part of a hardy splendid set of men who have i braved hostile Indians, Mexican ! . ,i. i .. i .... . i. i ctiL-iiti ojtts itnu uespciatioes, uuicii js I proverbial of your real occidental pioneer. AtllilCn.Tl ItAL INFORMATION. A large portion of the country claiming Florence as ils centre, hol ders on the Gila liver, and a irood many thousamls of acres are or run be watered from tliU stream, which runs almost a'l the year round in many places. The Gila does not at all compare with the Salt River in this respect, nor is there one-tenth as much land susceptible of culivation and productiveness. Neither is the soil which is watered by the Gila i; this section quite so rich as that around Phenix. But it is good enough to produce all kinds of fruit grains and vegetables, and that is enough. Grass and wood abound in j The first visitation is a general one in the spring, and the rams coustinucs for some weeks and descend all osrer the territory; then there are rains in November or December, which extend from about Maricopa Well in the west to Tucson and be yond, and from the Salt river country to the Sonora line. These latter rain purify the atmosphere, but seldom cause a rise in the rivers, or do other great general good. TARLE OF DISTANCES. Florence is a few miles northwest of the old Butteifield road from Yuma to Tucson, but the regular mall stages after leaving Sacator, strike out on a new road to take in Florence, and do not touch the old road again until near what is calle.i Desert Station The distance from Florence to Phoe nix is about 80 miles; to Wickenbiug, about 140; to Prescott, about 220; to Maricopa Weils, 50 ; to Tucson, a little more than 70; to Yuma, 230; to the Globe mining district, via Riverside-, 90 miles. , Major Dake, U. 8. Marshal, atvJ Robert II Walter, deputy, have re turned from Signal, bringing witfi them two notorious characters, stage robbers, whom they safely lodged fa jail. One of the parties, it is under stood, succeeded in getting away wit U 2!),000 in bullion,- a short tini ag from Wells Fargo & Co., inNntBa- Enterprise. " " The Miner learns from a. eliabl gentleman h.lely arrived iu Preacott from the Black Canyon cousry, that some sixty men are at w(k placer mining along the creek , file can yon and making good wages, On luky gent who, has a better claia than some of his neigttAuss, is-taking-out $50 daily. All the eoaoiry wants is plecty of water to pfoaa in pos session of innumeralMs plaec dis tricts, which would pay all th way from five to fifty dollar pe tiay to the man. The. Enterprise ts En receipt of a let ter from Ex-GoveBOF John- P. Iloyt, now one of the jsKiges- of tks supreme court of W ashington territory. Judgs Iloyt seems pleased with his new home, and no doubt the people thTe will be pleased with him1, ia kbte lawyer, he made at popular governor here iu Arizona, and the people wfah out regard to party,, or section were sorry at his departure. That he will make an equally good judge there can . be no doubt, and the people of 'Wash ington will have no eanse torcgret bis appointment to his present position. On February ltf, Peter Castello, a miner employed in the MeCrackin mine was blown to atoms by the ex- plosion of a box of giant powder. The lergext pi cue of the nnf'ortuuatc man that could be found was one of his teet, and the whole remains " vere gathersd up and placed in two candle boxes and taken ont and buried. It is not known by what means the pow der became Ignited, but it is supposed that Castello was at the time taking out a quantity with which to charge a drill hole for the purpose of making a blast, when tho whole blast became ignited. Governor Fremont appointed the following persons as county officers j of Apa .he county, to hold until June j 1, 1870, or until their successors arc elected and qualified; , James Steinson Probate Judge. Board of supervisors P. Crcaghe, W. J. Flake and T Perez. County recorder E. W. West. Sheriff A. Peralta. Treasurer Thomas C, Grier. District attorney II. J. Hct-htman James Steinson and C A.
