Pheriix is fast gaining tlio reputa tion of being an unfit placo for virtu ous people to tarry in. Tho columns of filth that have been published in the papers of that city during the past pix months would not have been sanctioned in another town in tlio territory. The two morning papers in particular have vied with encli other in unearthing ill of the misfortunes that befell unfortunate women, and the sickening details were dragged be fore the public with tho apparent en dorsement of tho community. The ast disgiaceful and criminal act on the part of the press is the damnable article in the Republican, in which a young lady who was well known for many years in Tombstone and Bisbee, was made the target for tlio pencilings of a low mind for tho sake of the few nicklcs which its publication might afford its author. The facts of the case are simply those of similar cases occurring daily, and which are no concern of the pub lic and not in any sense, affairs for publication.

H. Upton. Tho article in tho Republican held tho wife up to the public gaze as a depraved character practicing deceit upon her parents, and the hus band was represented as a fiend whose black heart had ruined the life of his future companion in life's joys and sorrows. It might bo well to explain that Air, Upton was a resident of Tombstone for ten years, and that Mr. Ham and family resided here for about the same length of time. Mr. Upton had been a friend of Mr. Him and had seen the daughter, grow from a child into womanhood. Tho interest that he took in tho affair is perfectly under stood by those who know tho friend ship existing between tlio family and Mr. Upton, and to announce to the friends of both parties that a Lanier had been placed against any future cause for unkind remarks, was the object he had in telegraphing that fact through tho Prospector to the many friends and acquaintances of the par ties concerned, who will wish them a prosperous and happy future. For the man who penned the low thoughts of his depraved mind, they will wish no better fato than would befall him did lie reside in Cochise County.
