Death has stricken from the roll of' the living among us and trans i4rred to the shilling host of immor- ials that have been freed from the .'0 cares and labors of earth since the : , world hegan--our friend Santiago .L: Hubbell, of New Mexico. Full .'.- of years honorably spent in acts of ' - 'benevolence towards his fellow man, as iho head of a family, a kind and 'V -devoted husband and father, with s.. -unceasing care and culture ot his diildrcn, who were to him the '.' "prldo, glory, and liope of his life. Farewell, old friend ; may the peace , " which passelh all understanding be , with you for ever more in the spirit yflnml." Y transfer to our columns -i ,';frd'm the Albuquerque Democrat ; . .,.4ihc following details of Mr. Ilub boIFs life in New Mexico : "All the old timers of New Mexi co and many of the new timers, will regret to learn that Don Santiago L. Hubbell, one of the very first Americans to make this territory his home, is dead. He was strick eng with paralysis about 11 o'clock this forenoon at his residence at Pajarito, seven miles south of this city, and three hours later he was dead. His wife and daughter were absent at Bernalillo at the lime and " only the servants were present to witness the dying agonies of the white haired veteran. Santiago '" Hubbell was one of the unique char acters of the far west. He belonged - to a class now nearly all gone men with whom we associate, all the romance and glory and western " warfare of forty years ago and it ' was a rare treat to talk to him a- ; bout those stirring days. He was v; ' of New England birth, but lived a '1nnr while in Mississippi and Mis souri before coming to the far west. He was with Fremont, the pathfin der, when he made his first trip in to New Mexico, and after the Mex ican war the first collector of cus toms at El Paso, at that time only a cattle ranch, with one of two lit tle mud huts. After New Mexico r". became a territory of the United States he was made snerut or Val encia count, and filled the office with credit to himself and profit to the people. Many years ago he married a Mexican lady .who has made him sin excellent wife' and has borne him several children, one of whom, Lorenzo Hubbell, is now sheriff of Apache county, Arizona. Don Santiago was in this city yesterday afternoon, r.nd those who met the o-euial old gentleman then, will be Neatly shocked to learn of his sud den death. Dr. Thomas, of Ber nalillo, is his son-in-law, and Mrs. Hubbell was visiting at his house at the time of her husband's death. Don Santiago owned a very val uable ranch at Pajarito where he has resided for many years, and he will not only be mourned by his bereaved wife, and child i en, bnt by yery resident of New Mexico tbat feels an interest in those rugged and fast falling veterans who, be fore the majority of us were born, helped Ijy their courage and pa triotism, to plant civilization in these weslern wilds and give it eng during life." The remains were buried with masonic honors at Paiariio. on Friday Feb. Gth. IlEFOPtTOF THE GIUND JURY. Territory of Arizona, Apache Couxty, Tninn Judicial Dis-tricy District Court. February Term, IS? c. On the morning of FehrnarvSrd. 1835. . jury called for the said term of the Dis I frict Court held in St. Johns, in sad i county, were only empannelled and j sworn, thof e being twentv-two jurors j present ; after hearing the instructions oi his honor Juflge bumner Howard, and his appointing Sol Bat th foreman of the jury the Grand Jury retired for consul tation. Mr. Robert E. Morrison was elected clerk of the Grand Jury and Mr. Joseph Hinsley interpreter. A committee of the Grand Jury on the Board of Supervisors repo! t as follows : We, the said Committee have examin ed as close as possible into the condition of a;,airs in the said Board as we could during the time, and we report that af ter the 'investigation we have learned all the stub-books and bills have been burned and destroyed ; that no record of the proceedings of the Board previous to April 3rd, 1S3, can be found; that in the minute book kept since said time we find that the record of money allow ances do not appear as is required by law, that no record has been kept of whole meetings of Said Board. "We would suggest that the Board of Supervisors direct the clerk of said Board to keep a correct and accurate account of all proceedings of said Board and to lceep safely all stub-books and all bills which are presented to said Board and allowed. We would further suggest that in view of the fact that malfeasance appears t have been committed by the dork of the Board of Supervisors, and Luther Mar tin, chairman, in not keeping proper re cords in the proceedings of the Board of Supervisors, that we would recommend that the District Attorney shall thor oughly investigate this matter and if he so deem it best, bring suit upon the ofn sial bonds of said officers for a failure to pojform their duties as public officers. We would recommend that in future the members of the Board of Supervis ors see more carefully to the records of the minutes'of the meetings and the rc--cord of allowances against the county. We would say that ail the Supervfsorf of the Board of Supervisors of the last two years should be censured for the negligent way in which the affairs of the Board are in. Jamss Riciiey, Chairman. The Committee on the County Treas urer's Office. "We, the members of said Committee would respectfully report that we have made as thorough an examination of said office as we could in the short time at our disposal. We find that since the organization of the county no books of accounts have been kept by the Treasu rer until about one year ago. "We find it utterly impossible for the indebted ness of the county to be discovered by these books or how much money the county has on hand. We have discov ered that any number of warrants ap pear upon ihe Treasurer's books for which no authority can be found in the minutes of the Board of Supervisors. Among other things we have discover ed, t hat during one year $1, GOO had been paid on interest on tho jail bonds. We would recommend that the District At torney enquire into this thoroughly and if possible recover 800 dollars, which we think should not have been paid. In the short time at our disposal we have found ft impossible to give a prop er examination into the financial affairs of the county, and we would recommend that the Board of Supervisors employ a competent expert for the purpose of ma king a complete and thorough examina tion into the financial condition of the county; assist the different officers in straightening books of accounts and make a report to the said Board of Sup ervisors, showing the actual indebted ness of the county and the amount of money in the hands of the Treasurer. We would further recommend that the Treasurer should inspect carefully every warrant which comes into his hands for payment, and If he discovers that any warrants have deen issued for which there is no authoritv or no allowances appears to have been made by the Board of Supervisors, then he shall refuse to pay the same. Ve have had before us, Mr. Bunch, the present clerk of the Board, and he states that he has devoted about three weeks to the examination of county af fairs and he has been unable to find out what condition the county is in, and we must state that we report the same. We would further report that we have discovered terribie extravagance by the Board ot Supervisors in the auditing of bills presented against the county. F or instance, ovidence before us shows that for certain printing, 750 dollars war .al lowed by the Board; that the same prin ting could have been done for the sum of 150 dollars, as offered by the Albu querque Journal. We would request that the Board of Supervisors should ex ercise the strictest economy in the al lowance ot bills against the county and scrutinize ali accounts as carefully as they do in their own private business. Rorert Morrison. Chairman of Committee. To the Grand Jury of Apache County, Arizana at Feb .'term District Cout: Your Committee have done their duty the best that time will permit; have made an examination of the Sheriff Of fice. "We a e unable to ascertain any thing as to the office, as there is nothing in it that we can comprehend from such an investigation as we can make; but think that such investigation should be ! made in connection with the Treasure's j office, and the office of the Board of Su- i pervlsors and the minutes of their pro ceedings. Jamss Riciiey, ROSALIO COLOMO, E. D. Johnson, Committee The Committee on Probate Judge repor ted as follow : "We the Committee appointed to ex amine into the office of Probate Judge, would respectfully report that said office is being conducted recording to law.and everything connected with it is in good order and condition. Serafin Atodaca, j Jose Garcia, Jas. Dellurray, Committee. The Committee on County Recorder's Oifice reported as follows: We, the Committee on County Rec order Office would report that we have examined said office and its working and find everything in good condition and the records being properly kept. II, H. Scorse, John Connors, Roman Lopez, Committee. The Committee on District Attorney re poi ted as follows : St. Johns, Feb. 9, 1S5 Foreman of Grand Jury : Your Committee appoint ed to examine the office of District At torney have completed their work. "We find a good office ; that the District At torney has been provided with a good library which reflects credit on the County Commissioners in promptly sup nlying'a long felt want. JosEni Hinsley, Francisco Baca. Clemsnto Gutiereez. Committee. The Grand Jury would report that our county jail is utterly unsafe and insecure in which to keep persons and we would earnestly urge that the new jail be push ed to completion as rapidly us possible. It is recommended by us that our clerk Robe-t E. Morrison and interpreter Jo seph Hinsley bo allowed additional pay, for extra services rendered, during the session of the Grand J ury. In closing our repoit we desire to re turn our sincere thanks to his Honor the Honorable Sumner Howard, for the courteous and dignified manner in which we have been received by him and also for the valuable instructions given us for our guidance. We also w"sh to thank our untiring District Attorney and also his genial in telligent assistant Mr. Bunch, for the great and valuable assistance rendered us in discovering crime and fraud in this county. And now having disposed of all the business brought before us and thanking ill who have rendered us any assistance .veask to be discharged as Grand Jurors. Sol. Bartii, Robt. E. Morrison, Foreman.
