Sr. M. Borquez received a large lot of household goods from Sonora, Mex., early in the week. By the same train of eight large teams, much panocha, bran and leather arrived. Bran is not a dutiable article and probably that accounts for its importation to Tucson.

F. Margaillan, Deceased.
Some scraps of information about this deceased person have been placed in our possession, from which we gather that he died Nov. 12, after a few days' illness at Sweetwater near Sacaton. He left seven $20-gold pieces, and a note of $200 due him by a party whose name appears to be P. Julletier, and dated Nevada, March 6, 1863; also a mare and saddle. After his debts were paid, we understand $100 remained and is the hands of Frank Larkin, who, upon proper application, is ready to pay it over to the heirs of the deceased. he is said to have relatives in Calaveras County, Cal.
From a passport dated Oct. 5, 1855, we learn that he left France in that year; that at that time he was thirty years old, and that his destination was California.

Zeckendorf's lotter was drawn as announced and everybody was satisfied - who drew out as much as they put in; and those who drew small elephants and Missouri fowling-pieces (fine-tooth combs) should not complain if one was small and the other useful.

Jacob Wittmer, a Swede, aged about 55 years, died in extreme poverty, in Tucson, Jan. 22, 1871. He was only 16 years old when he reached the United States from the Canton of Salothern. He soon after enlisted in the U.S. army and served therein over thirty years, and was among the first cavalry that ever entered Arizona. He latterly received aid from the charitable, prominent among whom was Jacob Shaubline, Esq. We are not aware that imprudence rendered him a subject of alms.
Supposed Poisoning. A report reaches here apparently well founded, that John Kilbride, of Mohawk Station, on the Gila, died recently from the effects of poison administered by a cook. Not long since his wife left him, and it is believed to have been the work of her instigation. Just after the Mission Camp massacre, the common remark along the Gila was, "John Kilbride's turn comes next," and he seemed to feel that he was a doomed man. Threts against his life were numerous, mostly following family complications.
Hon. Reese Smith, who has fought and farmed it by turns in this county for some years, until about worn out in body and quite disgusted otherwise, informs us that the Apaches started in at his ranch above Tubac on Monday morning last (23d), and scoured along down the river past Calabasas as far as Tumocacara, where they made a success of it - shooting (through the groin doubtless fatally) a Portuguese known as 'Joe,' and getting away with four horses. Our informant says there were from ten to fifteen Indians, and that the wounded man was shot with an improved weapon. Also, that the citizens are generally leaving the valley and sending their stock to Sonora. He says two families, neighbors of his, have come to Tucson in consequence. It is useless to comment on these raids singley; the facts (all we want, speaking in paradox) are ample to send abroad nowadays.
The Weekly Arizonian, 04 Feb 1871
the brother of Capt. J. W. Hopkins arrived by last Coach from San Diego. Mr. Hopkins intends to make Arizona his future home. He will leave for Camp Crittenden in a day or two.
A Serious Accident - On Saturday night last a young man named Sweeny received a dangerous wound by falling from the roof of Mr. Fish's store, and alighting upon a stake, some 18 feet below.
Arizona Citizen, 04 Feb 1871
A. Levin, the excellent beer manufacturer of Tucson, is preparing to start an establishment in the Gila settlements, probably at Adamsville.
Col. Lewis, well known in Arizona, now resident of San Diego, we learn by a letter of Jan. 27th, is near death; that he could not then speak, and his friends had no hope of his recovery.
Thos. W. Jones, arrested on suspicion of having attempted to poison all hands at Gila Bend, was brought before Justice Meyers last Saturday, waived an examination, and was sent to jail to await the grand jury.
Good Living suits everybody, and it's some advantage to know where it can be obtained, and the object of this is to say that the place is at Frank S. Alling's Dining Hall - sign of "Shoo Fly." Last Saturday Mr. Alling received, direct from California, a great variety of rare edibles in this market. Buckweat flour, corn meal, fish, honey, fruits, &e., &e. His table is most liberally provided with the best prepared food.
Shooting on the Gila - Dr. Wilbur received a call on Thursday
to repair to the Gila to repair the damage done to A. Gonzales,
who was shot in the groin by Frank Griffin. The wound will
probably prove fatal.
P.S. Just as we go to press, Mr. Archibald kindly handed us a letter from D. C. Thompson, showing that Jan. 31 he started a 4-mule team for hay, 15 miles distant. At nearly sun-set, the Apaches jumped three men cutting hay and loading the wagon, one man receiving a mortal wound - one white man and Papago escaping unhurt. Upon getting this report, Mr. Thompson raised a party of 12 men who went in pursuit. When 20 miles, Gonzales, above-mentioned, being under the influence of liquor became separated, and on his approach to the party, he was hailed several times, but failed to respond, leading to the belief that he was an Apache, and was shot as above stated. Mr. Thompson says the whole party justify Griffin.
Judge Isham Reavis elegantly celebrated his birthday which fell upon last Saturday. ...
W. O. Sullivan celebrated his nuptials on Thursday night, by a gay dance and a truly generous feast of the best edibles and drinkables. If the beginning of his wedded life be an index to the regular every day future of it, he will exist happily and fare plenteously, and being a good man, he deserves "all that sort o' thing."
The driver of Thursday's eastern mail brought word that early this week, a party of three men and one woman were attacked by Indians just this side of Apache Pass, resulting in the loss of their stock but no injury to their persons. Form every direction that news can be received, Apache depredations are reported.
On Wednesday night last, a party of Apaches (twenty to thirty) attempted to steal stock on the southern suburb of Tucson. The next day a small party passed west between town and the nine-mile watering-place. The Papagoes say they followed this band out into the hills - saw them there.
The sentence of Anthony Dorman is expected to be executed next Friday. Preparations therefor are making, and there seems in this instance no escape from the jury's verdict and the Court's sentence.
Married. Sullivan-Mead. February 1, 1871, in the Catholic Church, by the Rev. Father Jonvaneequ, W. O. Sullivan and Anna Mead, both of Tucson.
The Arizona Citizen comes to us. It is published at Tucson, Pima county, by an old newspaper man, John Wasson. It is a live paper, discussing with ability the issues of the day, while it does not fail to keep its readers aquainted with all matters of interest specially belonging to the Territory. We wish Wasson success in his enterprise, and if enterprise and ability are great requirements necessary to ensure it, Wasson possesses them. Vallejo (Cal.) Daily Chronicle.
The Weekly Arizonian, 11 Feb 1871
Shot by Accident. A dangerous, probably fatal accident happened to a young man named Smith, on Tuesday. While cleaning a pistol brought the muzzle to bear upon his breast, and in this position discharged it by accident, the bullet entered below the left breast and ___ somewhere in his body. He is still alive, but death seems inevitable.
Don Francisco Fererro, a gentleman now in his 70th year, recently immigrated from Hermosillo, Sonora, with his family, and intends spending the remainder of his life in Tucson. For seven years, as a captain in the army under the government of Spain, he commanded the military post which codstitued the Tucson of twenty years ago. Huis recollection of the past is most vivid; and he still points, with special pride, to various spots now within the suburbs of the city, whereon he fought and defeated the hostil savages of those days. He bears upon his person the scars of more than one conflict with his savage foes, and relates the experience of his eventful career as an officer of the army of the province and subsequently of that of the republic, with all the fervor that might have characterized the ambition of his thirtieth year.
The nomination of Herman Bendell, as Superintendent of Indian Affairs for Arizona, was confirmed by the Senate ...

Geo. Smith shot himself in the lungs, early this week. Dr. Durant attends him, and he regards the wound as dangerous.
Anthony Dorman, whose execution for the murder of Felipe Garcia, last June, was set for yesterday, will have a year or more of life so far as the law is concerned. ...
A. Gonzales, shot last week by Frank Griffin for an Apache on an Indian scout, is reported in easy condition and liable to recover.

The Weekly Arizonian, 25 Feb 1871
Mr. Preston, photograhic artist, died of pneumonia, on Saturday. His funeral was largely attending on Sunday.
D. H. Stickney, Presiden of the council, died at his
residence, on Friday, the 17th, in his fifty-ninth year. His
obsequies took place on Sunday the 19th. His body was taken from
the Council chamber and followed to the National Cemetery by the
largest procession ever witnessed in Tucson.
Mr. Stickney was one of the early pioneers of Arizona, having come to the Territory in 1857. He was elected from Pima County to the First Legislature and has been a member of every subsequent legislature of the Territory. A man of age and experience, indentified with all the interests of the Territory and throughly conversant with htis history he was unanimously elected president of the Council at the organization of the Sixth Legislature. Universally respected for his industry and strict business integrity; as a public man esteemed for his riged adherence to principles of economy; as an early pioneer and an honorable man, holding claims upon the popsulation that sprang up around him during a lapse of many years, he leaves behind him a void which there are but few men to fill. In Mr. Stickney a good and useful man has passed away.

A Sudden Death - One of the musicians employed at the ten-pin alley, named Passos, died while seated upon a chair playing his instrument, on Saturday night, and went off so calmly that he had been some ten minutes dead before the fact was discoverd. He suddenly ceased playing, but still retained his instrument in his hands and his upright position in a chair. His companion, after a few minutes, requested him to proceed, but receiving no answer turned his attention to the bartender and entered into conversation. A few moments elapsed when he again spoke to his companion and again receiving no answer he shook him by the arm, but with no better effect. He then examined him and found his jovial comrade of ten minutes before a lifeless form already partially cold. The suddeness of the event created much consternation among the crowd present.

Chas. Isenbeck was arrested Wednesday evening on the charge of embezzlement preferred by one Briggs. The case was brought before Judge Meyers and the following circumstances developed. Mr. Isenbeck had leased the two stamp mill at Warner's and advertised to reduce milling ores at very low rates and to guarantee true returns. The said Briggs, who formerly ran the mill, gave Isenbeck some ore to crush, the said Isenbeck reduced the ore and deposited the amalgam with one of our citizens in liquidation of an old debt. When Briggs learned these circumstances he procured a warrant for the offending Isenbeck who was arrested and lodged in jail. If no new circumstances are developed in the hearing before Judge Meyers the prisoner is liable to appear before the next grand jury.

Demetrio Velasco, among the oldest and most respected of the pioneer merchants of Tucson, died after an illness of but eight days at his residence on the Military plaza a little after noon today, of a complication of liver disorders. His death was sudden and unexpected, being, as he was, in the prime of life, having but just turned his fortieth year. He was a native of Hermosillo, Sonora, where, beyond his immediate family, the larger portion of his relatives reside. Mr. Velasco has been a resident of Tucson for the past fourteen years or thereabouts, during which time he was either engaged in merchandising or in the forwarding and commission business. The latter occupation he was carrying on at the time of his death. He was a shrewd, practical man of business, and perhaps more familiar with the Sonora trade than any other man in this city. He leaves a wife and nine children, the eldest of whom, a sone, is 16 years of age, to mourn his great loss. The funeral will take place from the family residence, on Military plaza at four o'clock tomorrow afternoon, and will thence be conveyed to the cathedral where services will be held. From thence the funeral cortege will take its way to the cemetery. Mr. Velasco was an honored member of the Society of Pioneers, and that organization will, out of respect to the memory of the deceased, attend the funeral in a body. Friends and relations in Hermosillo have been telegraphed and will arrive by train tomorrow afternoon. Mrs. Velasco and family have the sympathy of the entire community in this their great and irreparable loss.
