The Houhc has passed a resolution to adjourn on Monday next, but the Senate, realizing the impossibility of conclu ding work by that time, disdained to oven confer on the subject. The conference committer ou the bill to enable national banking asso ciations to extoud their corporate ex istence, agreed upon the only remain ing points in controversy. The Cabinet again to-day consid ered the affairs of Chili and Peru. At the instance of the counsel for the prosecution, the grand jury will be reconvened Monday, when the newly discovered evidence in the Star route'frauds will bo laid before that body. It is rumored that prom inent officials not openly mentioned ull be indicted. be Secretary of the Navy receiv- following telegram from Engi- aT .Melville, oaten Irkutsk: Ar rived at Irkutsk with Ninderman Noras and (ho relics. Missed Harper on the Lena, and cent Bartlett to join him. Want permission to re turn home! An adjourned caucus of the Re publican members of the Senate was held to-night to determine party ac tion of that body in regard to the House bill for the reduction of tho internal revenue tax and the general subject of tariff reduotion. The cau sus was largely attended and agreed that the House bill for tho reduction of the internal revenuo lax be taken up for action by the Senate immedi ately after the pending appropriation bills. There was a general expres sion, and the sentiment was in favor of making some small reduction on the rate of internal revenue taxation on tobacco. Among the items in tho Sundry Civil Service bill agreed to in Com mittee of the Whole to-day are $200, 000 for a fog signal at San Luis Obispo, and $12,000 for a fog signal at Lime Point. In the House, Butterworth (Rep.) made a speech in reply to Bayne (Rep.) of Pennsylvania, who, on Thursday, severely condemned the administration of Arthur. Butter worth s speech was an eulogy of tho President and an attack on tho Demo cratic party. Butterworth, in the heat of debate, so far forgot himself as to make an allusion which was of a nature to be unfit for publication and which was characterized by Cox (Dem.) of New York as the remark of a blackguard. Subsequently, an effort was made to have the colloquy omitted from tho recort', which was accomplished., though not until Morey (Dem.) of Mississippi suggested that the ohair rcqucskJadies to retire from tho galleries. Bayne, in reply, said the removals of collectors by the President were in violation of the constitution and laws, and contrasted Garfield and Aithur, unfavorably to the fatter. Lenox Erasto Chavey, chief engi neer of the surveying party mapping the Tiborau, has returned from that island, bringing with him four of the Ccris. tribe that inhabit it. Secretary Folger appointed Col. C. X. Oeahuo, late Controller of Customs at Sitka, Alaska, to a po sition in the customs service in Arizona. In the House, Willis attacked the conduct of his colleague while speak ing of him as a slanderous niRii, filled with malice. Secretary Chandler will to-day telegraph to Engineer Melville, of tho lost steamer Joanotte, ginng him permission to return home with his party. Hicks is coming in for his share of criticism, as he seems to bo working the Guiteau case to get all the adver tising possible. lie is tiying to get up a quarrel with District Attorney Corkhill now regarding certain points of the case. The Republican caucus this even ing will determine the programme for next week. There is a great de sire to dispose of the pending elec tion cases, but it will be almost im possible to get a Republican quorum. WABiiiNOTON,July 18. According to rumor to-night the new indictment in tho star route oases include Tlios. J. Brady and Stephen Dorsey a prominent U. S. Senator, and .luo. A. Walsh, and is based on a transac tion connected with the Sattlsbury contract, and Louisiana and Texas routes. It is also rumored that Walsh will be used as a witness against the others. In tho Star Route cases, Judge V1ih dismissed the grand jury till "Wednesday. Route 40104, from Mineral Park to Pioohe, Arizona was taken up and facts bro ght lo light of an unsavory character. The Senate bill, gianting the right of way to tho Arizona Southern road, through the Papago Indian Reserva tion in Arizona, was passed. Tho fund for the lelief of the wife of Sergeant Mason is again swelling under the leminderof the past ten days, 'tk'tty" i very comfortable, and expie-ses a hope to be able to carry a pardon to her husband soon. The announcement that Guiteau's bones are bleaching in the sun on the roof of the Medical Museum draws a larce number of curious people. To day the bones are said to have been removed from the boiling vat on Saturday and washed. They will bo exposect to the sun daily for two wooks to bleaoh, after which thev will be aired together and the skele ton will be leady for inspection. They are constantly guarded on the roof by a colored man to prevent them being stoloi. The Ilo-UUcN Attack Globe. Tucson, July 10. The Star's Fort Thomas special says that a courier just arrived from McMillan .sends a dispatch from Globe announcing that oil the 7th inst. forty Apache bucks attacked the town, but were repulsed after a hard fighf. by the citizens. The fight lasted half tin hour, during which the Indians tried to set fire to several buildings without success. One whito man was wounded. The Indian casualties are unknown. The Indians retreated in tho direction of Pleasant Valloy and Salt River, driv ing off all tho stock they could find. A partv of fifteen men left Globe yesterday to warn and protect citi zens in Pleasant Valloy. Four com panies of the Third cavalry started from heie yesterday in pursuit of the hostile.s These Indians are tho ren- egade-. who killed Calvige, reinforced by about twenty others belonging to the White Mountain band in the vi olnity of San Carlos.

At eight o'clock this morning, Charles Stites, for many years caller on the call boaid and a well known man in the board of trade creles,5was shot over the heart and instantly killed ly a young woman of doubtlul leputation who passed under the name of Mada line Stiles. She obtained access to his loom by an artifice, when a quar i el ensued which insulted in his death. The wonmi claims that Stiles, who had for some time been on terms of intimacy with her, had made her life unbearable by his dis solute habits and cruelty, and she had dctcnnined to leave him, and her-announcement of tho fact pre cipitated the quairol of this morn ing. Uncle Nam's Farming Intercut. "Washington, July 9. The num ber of farms in the United States in '80, was 4,008,907.

Cowardly I'leutl. Sr. Louis, July 10. A Post-Dispatch special from Shreveport, Li., says: In Wobstei paiish McGoylor, a colored boy fourteen years old, severely beat a white boy named McDonald, and fled to Aikansas. Some days ago McDonald's father, assisted by .1. J. Picket and John Auimond, pursued, captured and brought MeGoylor back. They tied hiin to a tree and shot linn to death. The body was found yesterday with the bones picked bare b vnltuies. Tho assassins will be arrested. The I'enn'j I vauia Itepublicun Itni Jle Chicago, July 10. The Journal's Washington speoial says it is an nounced by those in the confidence of Senator Cameron that the meeting of the Pennsylvania Republican Com mittee last lliutsuay resulted in a detei initiation not to have a new convention. If there is any compio mise it will be the work of the Centi al Cointnittecs of the two organizations. Mr. Cameron is unalterably opposed to removing General Beaer. lie says he is the strongest candidate. IHNublrd nt Men. San Fkancisco, July 9. This Af ternoon tho British barkentirmMadtre Wildfire was towed into the l...r'nV.r lint oor in a disabled condition. The vessel sailed sixty days ago from Callao for Humboldt. When within 127 miles from her destination the vessel en countered a terrific squall and whs knooked over on her beam ends. She was with grejt difficulty righted, and it was found necessary to cut the main mast and other portions of the rigging. Necessary rupairs will be made at once. Inother t'ouvcrt. St. .

(Special to the Epitaph ) Tucson, July 8. The Star's Guay mas advice's, under date of July 7th, says Loienzo Vidal was stabbed to day twice, in the mouth and shoulder, by Ignaoio Miranda, and is lying at his-residence, on Mercado street, in a precarious condition. The cause of the stabbing is attiibuted to busi ness rivaliy, both being tailors, and diunkencss combined. Miranda has been arrrested and is confined here in the carcelo. He also has a bad scalp wound on the head from a rook in the hands of Vidal. The feast day of San Juan Bau- tisto was generally observed here. A large ball at San Josn de Guaymas was given. Two days ago an Indian had both his hands blown off while trying to prime a giant powder caitridge. His arms were amputated by Dr. Spence. Jr!l i) lerro Corril, a semi-occasional sheot comes out, in a recent number, attacking the raihoad company on the hiring of American laborers and the using of English in its business, besides tho establishment of the sta tion at Punta Ltrtrc instead of at Punta Orcura. Matthews, the Uerniosillo incen diary, is heavily lioued and under guard. His crime is liable to be punished by death by shooting. Alta Mirano, alias Manuel Lopez, who was recently released from Tuc son to the authorities of the Moxican Government, under the extradition treaty,was brought to Hennosillo. He has killed seven poisons that are know of. His last escape before bo- mg turned over to the United States officials, was from the jail at Heimo sillo, when he killed a surgeaut and soldier, and he then was undei a sentence of death.

This even ing, from a steamer in the inner har bor, soldiers were distinctly seen digging trenches and carrying shot from one fort to another. Tho English Controller General and staff of the filirglish consulate have gone aboard ship to-night. All members of tho consulates aro now on board of vessels in the harbor. Tho English consul sent notice to other consuls, advising them to notify their country men to quit Alexandria within twenty-four hours, feoventeen more heavy guns have been placed in a position menacing the British ships, notwithstanding the threat of the Admiral to open fire. Admiral Sey mour is now considering whether ho will take action. All Biitish vessels have steam up. Correspondents have all been advised to go afloat.

ALEXANCRlAjJulyll,, All foreign men-of-war outside the harbor and foreign consuls, except the British, protested against the bombardment. Admiral Seymour declines to allow newspaper correspondents aboard the war ships. English refugee' ships have leffr the harbor. The telegraph ship Chilton also is outside. The Egyptions are still working on the forts, so report those people fleeing in every direction, and there is a great panic SUEZ CANAL CLOSED. A dispatch to Lloyds from Port Said states that the British consul theie by order of Admiral Seymour, has stopped ships from entering the Suez canal. Admiral Seymour tele graphs as follows: The ships opened fire at 7 o'clock this morning. The return file from the forts was weak and ineffective.

The Porte has telegraphed to Muslims Pasha, Turkish ambassador at London, the following: The Porte has learned that Admiral Seymour has opened fire. Tt is superfluous to dilate upon the extreme gravity of this fact in view of the emergency of the matter The Porto confines itself to requesting you without a moment's loss of time to make a pressing rep resentation to Lord Granville to issue orders to cease firing immediately, in order to advert stilt greater misfor tune. MAGAZINE 11LOWN VP. The first dispatch received from Alexandria says: The magazine at Fort Ada has been blown up. A private telegiam from Port Said states that the French consul thers has ordered tho embarcation of French subjects. The occupation of the Port he said was expected to take place to-day. DK LESSEPfi PROTESTS. London, July 11.

THE NEW WATER WOR THE HUAOHUCA WATER AND ITS SOUIICE OF .SUPPLY. A;i'xnd Knterprlsc, of Which Tomb stone Nhouldbe Prond. I'ure Water and Nubstautlal Work Vhe Originators of the Scheme andltf Oont I'u'.Hlliilltlrn Accruing from the t.'reat Enterprise The completion of the Huachuca Water Company's pipe line to Tomb stone has naturally attracted atten tion to the magnitude and grandeur of the enterprise. Herctefore it was a standing joke that Tombstone people had to drink whiskey in order to escape ho malarial effects of the water. Now, however, that agree ment will no longer work. The clear est and purest of waters flow through our streets in unlimited uuantities ji.and thirsty souls can quench their appetite without having-recourse to that which inebriates. Last Wed nesday a party of gentlemen left the city to visit the supply at the othi r end, and enjoy the refreshing breezes of the Huacniicas for an interval. An EpirAFii representative was a.uong the party. Tombstone was bidden good-by about rioon time, and the rtust of the Chaileston road rolled lazily from the wheels as the carriacie spe.i along. Neptune Wells was soon passed; the Good Samaritan mine frowned down on the party fiointhesteephillside;somedis- tance to the left the Stonewall loomed up, and a little further on the Blue Jacket dump looked down from the divide. Still further from Tomb stone the Randolph hove in sight, with a half hundred seeming satelites in its train. Approaching Chaileston the unlucky Bradshaw was seen on the left of the road, and soon the thud of the stamps were heard iu the oity or mills on the San Pedro. Charleston looked about the same as usual at least the party were too anxious to get ft glance at tho open country and mountain scenery to note any , particular change. iJstween CHARLESTON AND T'lE MOUNTAINS a magnificent tract of grazing land lay practically useless. Here, with water for irrigating purposes, whole communities could exist. Tho soil is of the best disoription for agricultural purposes, and is capable of producing anything that can be grown in the most favored lands. A gradual slope descends from the mountains to the rivor, but so gentle is the grade that it could hardly be noticed except by a practiced eye, until the mountains are approached, and the level plains are seen bending away to the river. Approaching the mountains the eyes are treated to a fine view of timber land, which an Arizona residence aould not help appreciating. Looking back the pipe line looks like a MISnTY SNAKX stretching away in the distance ob livious to the scorching rays of the almost torrid sun. Soon, however, tho brow is gently fanned by the cool bree.es from the mountains, and tho yellow pine, juniper and live oak give indications that the mountains are an actual presence. Soon the bleak, craggy heights loom up in savage grandeur, thrown together in a hundred fantastic gioups and con torted into as many shapes. The evergreen trees hug tho base of the rocks and sprout out of the interstices of earth tha't intervene. We are now ascending care's canyon, and have a glimpse of Gird's san mill in tin: .distance. From here a lateral pipe has been lun from a spring of crystal water that bubbles and flows along with the cleorness and purity of dew drops. This lateral inter sects the main pipe five miles from the supply in Millor's canyon. A dam, carved from the, solid rook imprisons the waters at this point. Here a minimum supply of 1300,000 gallons can be drawn off daily, and yec it is but a feeder to the "main line of pipe from Miller's Canyon. This beautiful sheet of water is surrounded, by what looks like an orchard of livo oaks, planted out with the regularity ot a garden ers art. The capacity of tho catch basin at this canyon is extensive, and is so regulated by pipes and flumes that it is thoroughly pi otected from mountain storm. To reacli Miller's canyon, the gieat supply tie pot of the company, it is necessary to retrace our steps down the can yon and go around the timbered foothills, to reach Miller's. Here the main seven inch pipe taps the chief supplv dam. This is a solid struc ture, able to laugh s tonus to scorn, with such solidity has it been con structed. It is about 100 feet long, 80 wide and 'J2 feet deep. At this season of the year, just previous to the summer flow, tho water is at its lowest point. Still it has a solid ospacity of 1,000,000 gallons, and the supply is liiexhaustable. It looks like a beautiful TROUT POND, and it planted with the finny inhabi tants of mountain streams, would bo able to keep the entire population of Tombstone in fresh fish. Tho pipe enters tho dam two feet from the bottom, and is fed through a perfor ated head. Beneath the main, is a seven-inoh drain pipe, for purposes i of emptyinc the reservoir for clean- largo flume has been con on top to prevent any structed disaster by a freshet or other crises. is eight feet wide, three feet deep 47V feet long. It is almost im possible tor any fragments ol timber or heavy sediment to enter, the flume, as two, breakwaters have been con structed within a half mile above the reservoir. About 2,000 feet down the canyon a three inch lateral pipe taps the main, bringing a supply of 125,000 galions from the Gird spring. This last line is about 1,800 leet, and has a never failing supply, as above indicated. Another, called tho Mc Coy spring, is about 2,500 feet down the canj-on, on the line of the seven inch pipe. This spring has a capacity of several hundred thousand gallons, but the pipe has not yet been intro duced. Still another spring, with an ample flow of crystal water, avail able for the use of the company in case of necessity, is in the vicinity, but has not yet been tapped by pipes. From the abovo it can be seen that there is no lack of water. Loaving out the reservoir, from the various feeders can be obtained a maximum flow of 800,000 gallons. The water obtained from these different sources is the best to be found in any part of the country. It juts out of the ground in natural springs, with rocky, pebbly bottoms, and is ever cool and clear. This water neither springs from al kali flats, nor is drained from tho filth and refuse of the city. Its sur roundings are fresh, pure and healthy. There is no possible chance for mud accumulations in the reservoir, as the system of swing pipes arc excollent, and tho supply is so ai ranged that any one pipe can be drawn off with out detriment to the others. I he prin cipal supplv at Miller's canyon is con trolled by a reel, so that the flow of water oan be regulated to suit all pur poses. The work of constructing the dams and water catches in the moun tains was commenced last Septem ber, and on tho 16th of March last the construction of the pipe line was begun. About fhe first of last month water was turned into the grand leservoir on Contention Hill. This magnificent piece of work would be a credit to the enterprise of any community, or the genius of any en gineer. This grand distributor is 365 feet higher than the central street of Tombstone. It was hewed out of tho solid rock, and is twenty feet deep, -90 feet long and 80 feet wide, with a capacity of holding 1,100,000 gallons of iater. Th .sides are lined with solid nasonry, three feet thick at the bottom, and two feet at the top, with the bottom cemented with the best hydraulic cement. It was constructed under the personal supervision of John W. Childs, and is a lasting monument to his genius. From the bottom of the reservoir two seven-inch pipes lead down the hill and intersect 3,000 feet from the reservoir, and one of them then continues 1500 feet further to the corner of Fremont and Ninth streets. Both pipes are regulated by valves, and the short one will be devoted to the uso of mills and hoisting works. A five-inch main connects with the main pipe on Allen street, and a six inch pipe taps it at Fremont. These pipes convey the water along the streets named, intersecting at tho different cross streets for supply pur poses. When finished there will be lifty-threo fire plugs two inches and a half in diameter. To provide against any possible accident, a four innh pipo has been run around tho reservoir, tapping the pipe, at some distanco before it enters it, and again joining it at a point a couple of huudreTl feet down the. hill. HIE PIPE is of the best quality of rolled viought iron, and was manufactured by the Pennsylvania Tube works. In placing the line 8,000 largo col lars were used and it is a singular circumstance, and greatly to the credit of the manufacturers, that not a single one of them was. broken. Usually an extra one is ordered for every twenty, but in this case tlieie was not an extra collar needed in the entire woik. When the pres-.urj of watci was turned on not a joint gave way, nor did there a leak of any consequence occur. This has the greatest fall of any gravata tion lino in the world. The pressure heie in the city is 170 pounds to tho square inch. The success of the construction is inainl) due to the energy and ability of I) W. Longwell, who had the ac tive management of laying the pipes, regulstinu: tho supply, etc. Mr. Longwell was for a long time con nected with the United Pipe Line of the Standard Oil Company. This coiupain i known as the most gi gantic monopoly in the United States, and has its headquarters at Clove land, Ohio. He was recommended by the Standaul Oil folks to this company to superintend the con struction of the water line, and how well he performed his work shows how correct was their judgment of his ability. Mr. Longwell was ably assisted by Messrs Luddingtoir and Roach, and the close attention these gentlemen gave to details, aided by their practical experience con tributed not a little to tho success of the work. Mr.1.!. S. McCoy is tho financial agent and general manager, and to him more than any ono else the people of Tombstone are indebt ed for the splendid water, works. The work cost considerably more than $500,000, and the fol lowing gentlemen have the most capital invested in "g- A arid the enterprise: James P. Hill, the extensive piano manufacturer of New York, P. C. Eastman, Wm. B. a.stor, Mr. Kalston, President of the .Farmers' and Loan Trust Company, and Charles Place. The large ex perience and capability of Mr. A. R. Fisk, engineer and examiner of the New York, N. E. and Western In vestment Co., made the enterprise possible. This gentleman reached town last evening, and the people of Tombstone should show their ap preciation of his enterprise and pub lic spirit. Mr. L. J. Gird, the civil engineer of the enterprise, should not be forgotten when the success of the work is being dis oussd. His engineering qualities came into gaod play, and the result of his labors" is the best compliment that can be paid him. Of course there is not a doubt but tho enterprise will prove a profitable investment for thoso who have risked their money in it. The line passing through the heart of a country need ing nought but water to produce any kind of a crop, will in time be tapped for irrigation purposes, and pleasant farms and verdant gardens will mark its course. Cattle too will slake thev thirst from its ever abundant flow, and 'he lowing of luscious beeves will echo along the shallow gulches and rolling plains between the San Pedro and Huach'ucas. Again, it is hardly possible that ore will 'be' hauled to mill ou the San Pedro when water can be obtained cheap er here than mules necessary to freight the ore can be fed. It need surprise no one, if some of our great producing mines were making arrangements to ro-. move their quartz mills to Tombstone in a very short time. And certainly, even if the mills already constructed are not removed, there will be no more built at such a distance from the mines, when a never-failing sup ply of water adequate for all purposes can be had on the ground at moderate cost. Viewing the enterprise from -the least enthusiastic standpoint, its success is the greatest boom Tomb stone ever received. Insurance rates should come down one-half. The danger of destruction by fire is re moved two-thirds, and property own ers can go to bed and sleep more comfortably when it is in full work ing order. At a moderate estimate, the successful introduction of such an extensive water supply is worth 81,000,000 to Tombstone, and 10, 000,000 to Cochise county. This is something to be grateful for. Let us doff our hats to its successful in troduction. COKMP.MCATIO . Trie Editor of the ErtTAPB la Lot neceia&ril rripontible for tho opinions f correspondents. Hatiafled Bbcccbii. He who has attained the goal of his ambition is of no further use to the world. God never designed that a man should be satisfied in this, world. History gives account of but ono single instance of a perfectly satis fied man. By his industry his old barns were replaced with ney ones, and they were all filled with tbDj( ; richest treasures, and he said: " Now soul take thine ease, thou hast much goods laid up for many years." And the Lord said: "Thou fool, this night shall thy soul be re quired of thee.'1 Only those who are wantod are missed out of life, and no one is wanted whoso mission on earth is ended. We are croaking and whining becauso we cannot attain the object of our desires, and do not stop to think that the pursuit of our desires is all that quickens our energy. If every man had what he wants what a stale world we would have. It is disappointment which develops the latent powers of the soul, and leads to success. 1 am talking to miners now, who once had energy enough to leave your homes and wander into this wilderness in search of treasure.
