THE PIKKXIX HERALD.
HEXI-WEKKkY ED1TIOX. GOSPER McCUNTOCK - Proprietors. Watarday. July IS. 17W. T HERALD to-dar eonsists of six pages THE WATER QI KMTIOX. To a certain extent, fears arc en lertained lost tlic supply of vatr for irrigation purposes the coming year, will not be adequate for llie demand, tdiouM a greater area be sown. Whether rtiese fears are well ground ed we know not, but as a 'larger body of land is cultivated every year, the supply mn.t of necessity be dimin ished. There are several plans by which this difticulty may be obviated viz: by the concentration of water in one or two large canals, thus saving a great amount of wastage, and an other by the diversion of crops. The growing of wheat and barley requires much more water thsn that of sugar cane, broom corn, cotton, flax and others that are equally as remunera tive. The soil of thio valley is pe culiarly adapted to the raising of cane, and a good harvest would he certain every year, and the same may be said of cotton and flax. A gen tleman, connected with a sugar re finery in San Francisco, who recent ly paid a visit to this place, gave it as bis opinion tliat sugar cane could be prown here, equally as well as at the Sandwich Islands, and that it would be one of the best industries of the country. In the event of a scarcity of water by the present source of sup ply, artesian wells will have to be bored, and other means resorted to. The formation of this valley i-i well calculated for wells of this character, as the best authorities on this subject state that artesian water is found where high mountains are near at hand, and where the valley has a gradual descent. Several attempts have been made in the Territory for frtriking artesian water but without success, owing no doubt to not con forming to the conditions of the land. Proper precautions taken now to reg ulate the supply, will save an im mense amount of trouble and annoy ance in the future. The Town Trustees have lately becn experimenting with prison la bor. In consideration of the work they agreed to pay for the services of the guard. During the past week the prisoners have been ensaged in clearing off the cemetery grounds and some $21 has been paid the guard at the rate of $3 per day. Previous to putting the prisoners to work some men had agreed to take the en tire job for ?24, so we don't think this will be a very profitable arrange ment for the town. Some of the prisoners who ure taken out refuse to perform any labor, which accounts for so little being done. As a reme dy for this obstinacy we would sug gest they be fed according to work done. Let theni earn their bread by the sweat of their brow. Xo sweat, no bread. A complaint was filed in the Fif teenth District Court, on the 7th of July, by Isaac Lyons, setting fc r:h that on the 21st of June last he en trusted Wells Fargo & Company with a quantity of bullion, of the val. ue of $1,704, to be transported from Yuma. Arizona Territory, to Sau Francisco, but which was no deliver ed to the consignees, J. Goldwatcr & Br., as directed. Wherefore plain tiff claims damages against Wells, Fargo & Company for $2,000. The Sntro tunnel is now an accom plished fact, water from the mines was turned in hist week, and the tun. tie! is declared a perfect success. Mr. Sutro has with iadomitable en ergy and perseverance against obsta cle after obstacle accomplished his designs. He has truly made his mirk, and demonstrated auew that where there is a will there is a way. Another one of these daring stage robherieswhich have been si prevalent in the southern portion of the Ter ritory, occurred last evening. For full particulars, see our local col umns. Yavapai County will soon have in full blast 12 quartz mills, as many, if not more, than all the rest of the Ter ritory combined.

New Mexico, who arrived in J're.-cott from that section, informs Vint the Rio Grande Del Norte, was, when he left, early in June, carrying lint VrMle water, and that it was an impossilHlrty to get a sufficient quan tity into the irrigating canals for ir rigating purpofccn, in con.-equenec of rrhicli. com mid )t!icr crops were rtifi'ering with drought.

The Tribune savs: Senator IJurnside defends his resolution respecting the isthmus Canal, on the ground that while the North American continent below the Canada border will eventually be under the control -of the United States, a movement to establish this highway with European capital must be regarded, as in a certain sense, an intrusion upon American territory. Senator Burnsidc informed a Tri bune reporter that his Isthmus Can al project was offered in good laith as a timely warning to the European Towers, that whether the Canal be built by a foreign government or by individuals, it would antagonize our interests. 'When there is need of such a canal our Government can loan its credit for . its construction. Wc shall soon have three railroads across the Continent supplying ample facilities for transportation. Speakiug of the po. sible appoint ment of General Grant as the Presi dent of the Inter-Oceanic Canal, the Herald thinks the General would not be caught by such a flattering bait, and adds that Lcsscps lias fallen into a serious mistake if he thinks that a little adroit flattery can change the settled purpose -f the Government of the United States respecting for eign interference with the affairs of this continent. General James Bom ford was a marvel of personal strength in his younger days and while serving as captain in the Mexican war "took down" a Mexican bully at Toluea. The bully entered a store one day, and, while his hand was lying on the counter, Bomford, without saying a word, took his place by his side and placed the point of his elbow on tne back of the hand and pressed it as though it had been in a vice. The aatonished Mexican squirmed and twisted in his efforts to extricate his hand, but to no purpose, and here signed himselt to the position. Bom ford asked some trifling question of the keeper of the More aud quietly lefi. The bully was not seen in To luea again during the stay of our troops. Miner It raised a sprinkle in Pres cott to-day, July 7th, 1SC9. On July 7th. 1S63. the wet season, it com menced raining similar to the starter we had this forenoon. In '03 it rain ed 47 days, and good corn or other farm produce could have been raised on the top of our highest mountains, as proven by the fuct that General Deven mide a scout through the hills in pursuit of Indians, and at a point on the high mesa, east of Prescott, which was covered with brush, his pack train carrying forage, stam peded, scattering corn over several acres, which grew up and produced corn without any cultivation, save the planting, which was done by the mule's hoofs tramping it into the soft earth. A fire in San Bernardino, July 7th burnt four brick and one frame store buildings. The loss on the buildings is estimated at $7,000. The contents were only partially saved. It was undoudtcdly the work of an incendiary. The fire department was promptly on hand, but for lack of water reservoirs in the vicinity was of but little use. Boren's block, ad joining the ruins was but little dam aged. The insurance was in the fol lowing companies: Phoenix and Home, London and Liverpool and Globe, Etna and North British. Citizen: Letter of date Jnne 2f. in the Santa Catarina mountains, by Louis Deputy, states the San Carlo Indians persist in setting fire to the timber in the mountains and refuse to abstain after repeated requests to do so. He sends a letter to be mailed to the San Carlos authorities at the agency, in which the evil and its eon sequences are set forth. Surely the Indians must be made to understand that to fire the timber is forbidden by law, and that if they refuse to obey, they should be punihsed.
