Mason’s Linos. Gen. Schofield Orders the Extermi nation of the Band. Gen. Crook’s Campaign in the Apache Regions. Another Crushing Defeat for the Red skins—Forty-one Killed. San Francisco, April 13.—Tlio remains of Gen. Oanby and Dr. Thomas reached Yroka this evening. A procession of citizens wont to re ceive them, Flags wore at half-mast, Delano was banged in effigy at Yroka. Gen. Oanby’s body was in charge of tho Masonlo body. Dr. Thomas* remains will bo sent to this city. Tho following additional particulars of tho m&ssacro of tho Peace Commissioners are re ceived t Copt. Anderson was at 001. Mason's camp when the attack was made on tho Peace Commission party. Llouts. Sherwood and Doyle were allured oat from the camp by a white flag. They wont 400 or 500 yards, when they mot what they supposed wore only two Indians, who said they wanted to talk to "Little Tiger," 001. Mason. They wore told they did not want a talk, and they wore advised to go back to their camp, and they (tho officers) would return to theirs. As the latter turned around, tho Indians, four in number, fired upon thorn, -wounding Liout. Sherwood in tbo arm and thigh, tho latter being a very serious wound, the bono having boon shattered by tho bullot, Oapt. Anderson, who was on duty at tho signal station, on Hospital Book, saw plainly tho attack upon Col. Mason’s front, and telegraphed Qon. Gillom to notify tho Poaco Commission immediately. Col, Bid-" die, who woe at the signal station at Gillom’a headquarters whon this message was received, at onco placed his Hold-glass upon Gon. Canby as tho party sot together about ono milo distant. Very soon tho whole party scattorod. Ho fol lowed tho General’s course with his glass while ho ran about fifty yards, threw up his arms, and foil backwards dead. Two of tho Indians, who wore following him, jumped upon him. One, believed to ho Capt. Jack, stabbed him in tho nock, and ho was oomplotoly stripped. Dr. Thomas was also entirely stripped. His purse, containing about SCO, was found under the body, tbo Indiana having dropped it. Mr. Moacham was shot In throo places, ono hall having entered at the Innor corner of his right oyo, another in tho aldo of his bead. Those are both bollovod to havo lodged within his cranium, Tho third passed tiirough tho right forearm. Ho also received a cut on his left arm, and a scalp wound five inches in length. Ho was found about fifty yards from tho spot whero tbo slaughter began, in a direction opposite to that taken by Gon. Canby. Ho was also entirely stripped. Bewildered in mind, tho Captain spent an hour with him yesterday morning. He was conscious and in no pain. Moacham says ho thinks ho shot Schonchin in tho abdomen, and blood was found which indicated that ono of tbo Indians hod been wounded. The soldiers, who wore ready, started on doublo quick Immediately upon tho ring of tho shots, mot Dyar, and Biddle and his wife before they wore half-way to tho camp. Tho Indians retired to their retreat, ahout GOO yards la advance. Tho soldiers who followed thorn half a mile beyond tho placo of tho murdor, there remained until dark, and wore withdrawn, as they wore not provided with supplies. To-day would bo spent closing upon tho rod devils, and if a general assault was not made to day, it certainly will ho to-morrow. San Fuanoibco, April 14.—Qon. Bobofiold sends this dispatch to Gon. QUlom : Please inform mo fully of tho situation, so I may scud more troops, if necessary; or, if tho Indians oscapo from tho lava-bod, I may send troops to operate against thorn from another di rection. Lot mo know fully what you wish. I suppose you have force enough to destroy tho outlaws, unless they succeed in eluding you. Nothing short of their prompt and sure de struction will satisfy. tUo ends of justice or moot tho expectations of tho Government. B&k Fsanoisoo, April 14.—A special messenger returned to Yroka to-night, from tho “lava hod.” nothing doflnito from tho seat of war. Thor* had boon no lighting up to tho time ho loft. Ammunition supplies had boon crowded forward. A dispatch says tho Surgeon extract ed four bullets from Meacham’s wound. There is little hope of his recovery. There were various rumors when tho attack 'would have been made; some to-day, some to morrow; waiting tho arrival of warm spring. Indian scouts aro to bo used between the linos of CflUom’a and Col. Mason’s command, they with tho cavalry making a third' lino, all advanc ing together from the north, south, and east of tho lake, and from the west. It is believed the battle will bo a hard one. No quarter will bo shown to the Modooo. Tho Pitt lUvor Indians remain quiet and peace able, but the Modoc escape will bo dangerous. Bam Fuamoihco, April 11.—Tho remains of Con. Ganby and Dr. Thomas have boon lying in state in Yroka, at Masonic Hall, all day, and have been visited by nearly the whole population. Over 1,000 persons have passed in. At 12 o’clock the children of tho public schools passed in pro cession by twos. There woro about 800. Tho coffins aro wrapped In tho National colors aud strewn with wreaths of flowers. An expres sion of groat sorrow was visible on every coun tenance. The horrible massacre seems too ter rible a thing. Gen. Ganby’s remains will bo forwarded to Portland by this afternoon’s stage in care of tho General's Aid, Oapt. 11. H.

Itoviow of tlio money, Gold, Dond, Stock, amV Produce markets---A Hindi Uettor Peeling in Financial Circles. Special Dispatch to The C/itcnj?o TVftmnc, New York, April 17.—Tho monetary Bltuatlou to-day showed an Improvement on that of yes terday. During tbo early hours a largo city hank called in considerable money, and there was also a general oalling-ln of loans on the part of money-lenders, under fear of further failures on the Stock Exchange, and price advanced and for a time was positively close at per cent. Those rates induced borrowers to seek ac commodations immediately, and tho effect was plainly felt during the afternoon In tho de creased demand, as affairs took a turn for tho bettor. Many lenders showed some anxiety to place their funds at interest over night, which had a tendency to weaken tho rates of interest. Many capitalists who called In their money during tho morning, wore offering tho same /mite freely later lu tho day, and before 3 o'clock tho price had declined to 1-10 per diem. After that hour loans were made at 7to G per cent. Advices from Chicago and other ‘Western points state that nearly all tho loose National Bank notes have boon sent to tbo East, and that very soon legal tender notes will flow this way. This will provo a groat relief to tho banks and tbo money market. To-day National Bank notes wore offered at 81-10 discount to tho parties who hid for the Government gold, and in other coses tho banks wore offering to take tho gold, and lend tho currency thereon, if tho successful bidders .would tako National Bank notes from them,' and place tho same in the Treasury in payment for the gold. It Is said, on tho host authority, that parties

manipulating Bt. Paul are tho actual instigators of tho money stringency. Van Sobayck & 00. have not foiled, as reported. GOLD was weak in tbo morning, and declined to 117%, but in tho afternoon tbo prices ad advanced to 117% on a oablo telegram that tbo Bank of England bad lost £400,000 sterling for tho week, and tbo Bonk of Franco had gamed 1,000,000 francs. Late in tbo day tbo markot reached to 117%, and again rallied to 117%@ 117%. STOCKS wore feverish and unsettled during tho morning hours, and there seemed to bo a general fear of further failures. Prices fluctuated from Ito 2% per cent, alternately up and down, tho changes Doing very rapid. After meridian, thoro was loss excitement, which culminated in a strong markot whon the ‘‘delivery hour " passed with only one now failure, J. L. Brownell «k Bro.,.and that an unimportant ono. Increased ease in money also assisted tho upward reaction, andhoforothe close prices advanced from 1% to 5% per cent. Tho widest fluctuations and greatest animation wore iu Western Union, Pacific Mail, Now York Cen tral, Lake Shore, Bock Island, St. Paul, Wabash, C., O. & I, 0., Union Pacific, Erie, Ohio, Pan ama, and Northwestern preferred. Thoro was considerable buying for out of town account, and this hod much do with tho strength of tho markot late in tho day. Experienced Wall street men say (hat thoro iu now no fear of a general convulsion, which would extend to mer cantile circles; but lb is evident that thceo en couraging views are in a measure forced. It is well known that tbo banks and trust companies are iu such condition of depiction that a shrink age of probably loss than 5 per cent iu loading stocks would compel the institutions to soil tho securities they hold as collat eral. Usually, when thoro in a groat depression iu tho market, tho trust companies como forward and stop into tho broach, prevent ing further shrinkage, and then call tip tbo margins on their collaterals. Now such a call a would be in vain, for tbo owners of the stocks havo olready suffered a loss of from 7 to 10 per cent by the stringency iu money, and loss by tho break of yesterday is to bo added to tho hurclou. DONDO. In railroad bonds, tho greatest activity was in Pacillo mortgages and Boston, Hartford A Erie ilrsta. Tho Inst named wore weak and lower, some sales being made at 88 to 88.

Hover convoraod with him in re gard to legislation, and never received a cent for any action or voto oh Senator from anybody. Ho received in April, 1870, a loan, from Jay Gould, of 81,000. for which ho gave Ida note, winch mat ter had already heon invoatlgalod. There wore then no Erie measures in tho Legislature that ho know of. Know that Mr. Church was hero en deavoring to gob a hill passed repealing tho OlaHßiflcatiou act, which witness endeavored to got reported. Tho loan wna for tho benefit of a friend, Henry Chamberlain, who used It In an enterprise, hut has not yet repaid witness. Didn’t know Gould was interested in tho repeal of tho Classification act, or that Fisk and Gould worojntoioslod in legislation in former years. It was witness’ first session, Tho Bopoal oct was reported by witness’ committee in 1872, and passed. Witness voted for lb. It was a political measure, and all llopnblioana voted for It. Became acquainted with Gould through tho matter of making a road in which his county was interested, Never acted as Gould’s counsel. Never hoard it intimated that Gould hod used money for legislative purposes. Didn’t consider lb more improper to borrow from him while a member of tho Legislature, than to borrow it from Mr, Stlcknoy. Paid tho whole amount of the loan, principal and inter est, prior to February, 1072. Paid tho interest in 1871. Paid both from tho proceeds of Gov ernment bonds ho had before no became Sena tor.

Bhaw testified as to 81,250pa1d him for service la effecting a revolution in Erie. Ho related a conversation with Gen. Sickles, who thought tho result could bo effected for $20,000 by tho passage of two kills—tho Classification Bopoal Bill and the one known as the Attomey- Qoueral’s hill. Witness told Bioklos ho was mis taken as to what was tbo political power of tho State of Now York, and that If ho attempted to defeat Jay Gould through a faction of the Bo publican party ho would find ho hod been absent from tho country a long while and had lost track of tho elements of power: that tho custom-house party bad lust triumphed by a few votes in electing Henry Smith Speaker, but that tho real power in tho Houso was tho faction lod by Gov. Alvord. Ho thon appeared very anxious to conciliate tho Fonton-Grooloy faction, and urged that they should shako loose from the Gould party, and adopt a uniform plat form, go in for impeachment, etc., tuko tho wind out of tho soils of tho other faction, and, with tho banner of reform homo aloft, march on to tho turning-out of tho Gould Directors, and thus prove tho purity of tho Bopubllcau party. Ho said this would bo good for tho party and good for tho country. Ho thon desired mo to oomo hero, and have a consultation with Gov. Alvord and other loading men, among them ox- Sonntor Bon. Field. I cumo hero from Washing ton, saw ox-Sonator Bamsoy, and assured him that no money was to bo used improperly. I re ceived money from time to time to pay expenses, but not a cent to use improperly. First, I saw Gov. Ponton In Washington, and ho approved of tho matter. Then I saw Alvord hero, and ho was ready to moot and co-operate with Gen. Bioklos. That gentleman came hero and they conferred. There was difficulty at the start which I had anticipated. Gen. Barlow and Gen. Sharpe appeared to want to monopolize all tho reform. They did not wont to take hold of tho Attorney-General's reform. Those matters wore going on when tho coup d’etat took place. I re f;ardod my mission to be to work out a groat po itical result, and Gen. Sickles, with his disposition to benefit the country; always had that object In view. I hoard Gon. Sickles say not one coni was to bo used, except it was to hire counsel. 'Mr. Babcock—Did ho not expect money would bo improperly used by others i Witness—Vos, air; but ho was too high-toned to stoop to'similar tactics. 1 did not understand any money was to bo used to got tho Directors to vacate their places. Clou. Huskies never in timated that money would bo used for that pur pose. Mr. Babcock—Did Qon. Sickles over toll you what he personally expected to gain by his ac tion. Witness—Well, that is a question which I don’t think tho Committee ought to press. It is going into private professional matters, which have no connection with corruption and wrong. Thomas O. Alvord, on being sworn, stated that Oou. Sickles came hero through tho last witness, and intimated that ho wanted a confer ence with mo. I said I would moot him with pleasure, as 1 was an old acquaintance of his. lu tho conference there was nothing said about Erie matters whatever, except perhaps an inci dental remark concerning tbo Attorney-Gener al’s bill. As to tho Classification act, everybody know my views. 1 said to Sickles that I was de cidedly opposed to tho Attorney-General's bill. Our interview was almost exclusively concerning political matters,—tho harmony of tho Republi can party. Ho boomed to come in behalf of tho authorities hi Washington, and appeared to bo ‘ very desirous of effecting har mony in tho Republican party. Ho did not sneak of harmonizing ou those measures. There was a hitch concerning ordi nary legislation. lam strongly of opinion that Erie was not spoken of in connection with his proposition for harmony. Never was told by him that money was used for legislation. Hoard it as common rumor.' Have no positive knowl edge of a legislator receiving money, but lam positive, nevertheless, that money was used! 1 think I could go into tho House now and point but a least half a dozen men who received money. It may bo I am possessed of & psychological fac ulty, through which I am informed, bat, how ever it was, lam certain that men did receive money. My experience and observation has boon -such that I am able to Judge who would and who Woilld not rftdOlVe money. I judge by their conduct and by their physiognomy. I introduced tho pro rata freight bill, and it was reported against unani mously. I have no knowledge whether tho money was used on committee. I introduced the bill early in the session, and it was reported against at the close, I appeared before tho Committee several times, and urged it. I was told at one timo that tho Committee was in favor of tho bill, and It was to bo supported. As to tbo employes of the House, such as Clerks of tho House, my opinion of them is that it would bo far bettor if some of them wore not em ployed. They are very active lobbyists. Last year they wore more or loss Inter ested. I don’t think they ate particular as to what measures they are interested in. There wore some honorable exceptions, how ever. There are fifteen or twenty persons hero every winter who havo no visible moans of sup port except that of looking after legislation.
