Tucson - February 23, 1877

News from Magdalena Sonora, says the Apaches have cleared the valley of stock and
killed and captured a few residents.
On Wednesday evening at 6:30 o'clock, a small band of Indians made an attack on Spearfish City, a small mining town near this place. About one hundred shots were exchanged, but none of the miners were injured. Owing to the darkness the damage done to the Indians is unknown. Last night Brighton's herd of cattle, which a party of armed citizens recaptured from the Indians a few days since, were again driven off by Indians from the False Bottom mining region
