The Prescott Courier says the old Asylum Commissioners have surrendered their hooks and papers to the new Hoard, but they did not turn over a cent of money, and it is said that the building is incom plete. The Prescott Courier is one of the brightest, newsiest dailies in the two territories, and as a type of journalism would reflect credit even upon a larger population than is found in the territorial capitol. The damage to Charleston, S. C. by the recent earthquakes is es timated at $7,000,000. Contribu tions have been received to the amount of $700,000. and have been distributed among the poor and helpless. Secuetauy Whitney distributed 300 turkeys as thanksgiving pres ents among the employees of the Navy Department at Washington, and Mrs. Whitney supplied the thanksgiving dinner to the instilu iion of the Little Sisters of the Poor. In the year 1SS7 there will be four eclipses, two of the sun and two of the moon.

Fauntle roy, representing V. II. Lennox Maxwell, and the condemned Chin ese high-binders, Chyo Chiayck and Chyo Gooni, asked that extension of time be granted, as the appeals to the State Superne Court had not been finished, owing to the illness of Mr. Johnson, the court stenog rapher.

A special dispatch from Socorro to the Albuquerque Democrat of Dec. 1st, says a final decision in the Charles W. Lewis mandamus case for the oflice of Assessor for Ber nalillo county was reached to-day. Prayer to the Court for opening of ballot boxes in precincts Nos. 1, 8 and 12. was rejected. Ballot box ol preeinrt. X,,. 80 was opened and counted and showed a majority of twenty-three in tho county lor Lewis. A peremptory writ to issue a certificate of election to Charles Lewis wa ordered bv the Court. The President has examined carefully the eases of the Apache captives, and has come to the con clusion that life confinement in Florida, where they can do no harm will be th. most thorough punish ment which can be visited upon these Indian1-. A military commis sion would have no atithoriiy to try them, and if they were turned over to the civil authorities in the Terri tories, it is believed the prejudice is so great they could not have a fair trial, and tl.e families and sur vivors would be left to cherish ven geance and keep up constant tur moil on the borders. As a matter of fact the transfer of the savages to Florida, means a lingering death and experienced army oflicers do not think-there will be one of them alive at the end of livo vears. A Nogales dispatch of the 80th ult., says late last night Billy Long, who was a scout with Capt. Lawton during the recent Indian campaign, shot and mortally-wounded a col ored man named Charles Anderson. It appears that there was bad blood between them, and Anderson pro cured a shotgun and started out to hunt up Long. He found him in a j saloon, and the chances are that he t will find his maker elsewhere. Five j shots were fired.

The Globe-Democrat says since the expulsion of the cattlemen from the Indian Territory those formerly interested in that country have been looking around for an opportunity to establish ranches in some other part of the country. This was not so easy to do, as land suitable for ranges was nearly all occupied. Af ter examining a number of States and Territories to discover suitable ranges, attention was directed to I Old Mexico, whero it was believed that land in sufficiently extensive tracts suitable for the purpose could be found. Such a tract has been discovered, and will soon be stocked by a syndicate composed of capi talists from St. Louis. Chicago. Jvansas City and Kansas, but the , majority of the stock will beheld j in St. Louis. A meeting was heRl at the Planters' House yesterday ' afternoon, at which Messrs. Henry L. Newman, David Kanken, John severe winters. The organization of the company is not vet com plete, but there remains no doubt that the land will be purchased and stocked. The company controls practically unlimited capital, and times. He has served one sentence and upon appeal; to the United States Supreme Court as to the alleged illegality of some portions of the proceedings, the law has j been sustained. He is now serving a sentence under the second indict ment. Application has just been made in the Utah courts to release him on a writ of habeas corpus. This proceeding is based upon the theory that the second sentence is cumulative, and that Snow cannot be twice tried under the Constitu tion of the United States for the same offense. It is, of course, the intention of the Mormon leaders to bring this case to the United States Supreme Court and to have that special question passed upon. This 'question was not raised in the first appeal to the Supremo Court which was decided adversely to Snow. There have been some dispatches from Mexico which state that the Mormons are instigating a filibus tering expedition across the bordei. Oflicials of the State Department and of the War Department both assert that the stories haye no pos sible foundation in truth. f.i yd f: Last week we mentioned :faci that the project of a telegraplrline between St. Johns and Navajo was being agitated by business men in the county. While we will cor dially endorse and support any eng terprise which promises a benefit or convenience to citizens of the county, yet we ask as a suggestion to those who have the telegraph line in contemplation if a telephone line between the places designated would not prove a more economi cal, a better patronized and morel profitable venture. The cost of constructing the two lines we pre sume would be about the same, but the expense of operating would be by long odds in favor of tho tele- 1 An a 'PLr rvl rki ri rk xt'Mill lic? 1 . . . 1 . i pense with the services of an ope- !1 , ... , 1 ! rator, and could be located in some j , . , . , business house, without expense to ! . . , 1 . tnc management, ana maue accessi- ble to the public upon such reason able terms as would invite a much larger patronage, and at the same ; time aggregate a much larger reve nue. If deemed advisable it could ! be easily extended to Sprirrgerville I in ,-iand other places upon the same ! economical basis. While it is true a telegraphic system possesses some advantages, and in many respects is the preferable mode of commun ication, yet on the grounds of prac ticability, and the ever to be con sidered items of profit and loss, it seems to us that the telephono has the better of the argument. These are merely suggestions, made for what the are worth, while we pa tiently wait, to gladly accept what ever may be the result of delibera tion on the part of those who are willing to give us direct communi cation with the outside world. The Prescott Journal-Miner in dulges the following spasmodic, bilious sarcasm : v rrv A little prospective patronage, through Qpyernov Zulick's influ ence, makes the St. Johns Herald very fulsome in its praise of that official. AVp admire gratitude in a newspaper, as well as in an individ ual, even if it sometimes approaches the verge of fawning. We are well aware that the po litical nurture, training and admo nition of the Journal-Miner hae ' indissolubly connected political af j filiations with spoils and prefer ' ment. AVe appreciate the fact that the habitudes of a quarter of a century have so engrafted them selves as to become personal char acteristics, and that custom and I usage may render a support and purchase interchangeable terms. It is possible, however, to applaud and commend patriotic, public spirited acts, and the integrity of official conduct without the promise or hope of reward, and it is to be re gretted that partisan prejudice j should ever be so jaundiced in its j rancor, and so baleful in its influ j ence, as to blind the eyes and close j the ears to demands of truth and 'justice. The official acts of Gov. IZulick, to which reference has been made in the columns of the Herald, we believe to have been fully war ranted by circumstances, and made in furtherance of the best interests j of the Territory. "We have com j mended and approved those acts not in the spirit of a partisan, not in the blind fanaticism of political servility, but as. the exponent of a sentiment coming direct from the people, to whom and for whom, we speak. The ''prospective patron age" which we sought and have won is the recognition and endorsement of the best citizens of the couMry, and this has been bestowed with so unstinted a hand, that we are more than satisfied with the result. The Herald has never sought, expected, hoped for, or received public pat ronage, and has certainly no prom ise or even intimation upon which to hang such an unthought of ex pectation. 'From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh,' and we charitably accredit this baseless insinuation to the cove tous suspicions, which political Jeremiads have engendered in the soul of the Journal, for two years ahungered.
