The Examiner industriously circa, lated a report a few days since that Nevada was rapidly going into decay I a.ndtbat statehood lonio. day would be taken from her. This una aroused tbe spirit of the press of the silver state and they are doing some pretty sensi ble talking. The Virginia Chronicle in speaking of the outlook uses lein of argument that might be profitably heeded by the powers that be in Ari zona. It savs : "Without a mine in the Sta te the agricultural resources of Nevada are ample to support fifty limes its present population. With such a system of water storage and irrigation as is pos sible and which at some time will be developed, millions of acres of now ap parently barren land will bo profitably cultivated and Nevada will rival, if it does not exceed in cereal exports, tbe present most productive State in tbe Union. Nevada has the resources of an empire. Lack of them is sol the cause oi her decline. It is the tack of encoaragement given to their develop ment. Beduce tbe oxpenses of our state and county governments to rea sonable proportions. Lop off useless offices and deputyships and consoli date necessary ones. By these and other economic reforms reduce the tax ation rate to such an extent that the investment of capital here will not in volve the annual payment for that pur pose of as much money as the interest would amount to in some of the other States. This will be done at some time although the prospect is not encourag ing for its consummation in the imme diate future. But the people will learn wisdom after awhile, and before the commonwealth drops out of the line of Statehood." Our Local Troubles. The Wilcox Stockman says that Lieutenant Stockle with ten Indian scouts and twenty colored men arrived there Saturday evening last en route to Fort Bowie and tbe southern coun try recently the scene of Indian hos tilities. On Sunday morning Lieuten ants Clarke and Dade, lOih Cavalry, followed. The detachment is under the command of that enterprising young officer, Lieut. Clarke. In con vernation with him he didn't seem to be very much put out at the hard things said about bim recently in the Tombstone paper. He asserts tbat he did bis whole duty, aud the. better claw of citizens will so say. He said be would, as heretofore, work dili gently, and while be perhaps could not rid tbe country of 11 10 roving bands of fudians, he could prevent-further mur ders by them. lie admits that when friends are thus foully butchered by the reds, a natural feeling will assert itself that it might have been prevent ed, but tbe situation should be thor oughly understood lfore condemning an officer who is under the direction of superiors, and whose orders must be obeyed. Referring to the important question now much dicasseJ, of dis arming the Indians, he believes it can be done, but how to prevent them from getting arms and ammunition by purchase or otherwise from ;uiscm pulous parties, is a harder question to answer. So long as they have ponies and other property to trade, &ad guns are to be hal they will hare them. K. T. Eastman advertises in the Nogales Herald for" twenty-five ood choppers to cbop 1,250 cords of wood at Fort Huachuca.

The Apaches men, women ad children were mow ed down without mercy. After the fi gbt the account of this affair went to Washington and an investigation of the affair was ordered by the Secre tary ot War. General Ewell however, maintained his position and defended his action in the following terse lan guage. "How Iho devil can a soldier stop, la the midst of a battle and sum mon a jury ot mittrons to decide whether the redskin pouring bullets into the soldier is a woman or not? Take aim, boys ; steady now. Fire!" And the boys mowed down all com batants, both great and email, regard less of color, sex or tho mistaken pity of falso humanity." 3 i The Prospector stated a few days since upon what it considered good authority tbat Col.

The Mazatlan papers, says the Two Republics, announce the arrival in that port by every steamer from San Francisco of large numbers otChinese. These celestials ars brought to San Francisco by the steamers in the China trade, and there transferred, without being permitted to land, to tbe steam ers which bring them to Mexico The Chinese have opened laundries, res taurants, bakeries, etc, in Malzatlanj but tbe majority who arrive disappear; in the interior, ostensibly in search of work in the mine. It is claimed thatf those who do not find employment in-s Mexico continue their journey to the Rio Grande, when they aeize the first opportunity to cross into the United States. Be this as it may, the num ber of Chinese in this and other cities in the republic is rapidly increasing.
