A party of four adventurous gentlemen--Mr. Louis Bucha, merchant; Dr. Bradshaw, dentist; Mr. Brackett, distiller; and Mr. Patchin, miner — arrived in this city on Saturday last from the town of Mesilla, in the Territory of Arizona, after a voyage of two months down the Rio Grande. Teh party left Mesilla on the 29th day of June last, and have been on the river ever since, without stopping at any place more than a day until they arrived at Davis ranche, where they stopped four days.
