A letter is shown us by Esq. Hurlbut written by Mrs. Belle Hurlbut to Mrs. Walters, announcing the death, in Arizona, by Indians, of Rodney Hurlbut (her husband) a few weeks ago. This letter has been a most unwelcome one to the hosts of friends in McGregor who tied to Rodney with "hooks of steel *." May the God of the widow and the orphan be the protector of Belle and her little child in their loneliness on the Pacific shore!
*could be "books of steel"
