STEVENS - Information has been received by the friends in this vicinity, of the death of EDWARD STEVENS, formerly a resident of Rome, New York, and son of Samuel B. Stevens, well known to most of our citizens.
     The deceased has for many years past resided in California, and at the time of his death, was manager of the Mowry Silver Mines, in Arizona.  It appears that Mr. Stevens, in company with a Mr. J.B. Mills, was on his way thither from Santa Cruz, a distance of 15 or 20 miles, and that about midway of their journey they were fired upon by Indians in ambush.  Mr. Stevens was riddled, with bullets, and he must have been killed instantly.  Mr. Myres was wounded, but it is supposed made a desperate resistance before he was finally overcome by the bloodthirsty savages.
     Mr. Stevens was in the prime of life, an energetic, thorough, and properous business man.  His untimely death will sadden many hearts in this community.  (RCMar18/1864)
