At this tlmo I heard tho report of guns In camp, and saw tbo Indians strike down my comrades with tomahawks. Borne of tho Indians came to mo and robbed mo of S2OO, my clothes, and gun. I then walked away, taking an easterly direction, and arrived at Caldwell, Sumner Co., April 14. and have not soon or hoard of my comrades emco.

Chief of tho Surveyors on tho 1 Cimmaron, arnvod to-day, end confirms tho report of outrages on Modioino Lodge. Tho Indians, supposed to bo bands of Osagos, and Ohoyonnos, were fifteen miles from tho boundary of their Association. Many settlors aro malting claims in tho Modioino Lodge. Tho Indians aro daily robbing and stealing from them, and committing murders whenever they dare. The settlors will fight before leaving their claims, and massacres will bo of frequent occurrence, unices tho Indians aro compelled to stay on their reservations. Atchison, Kan., April 28.—A correspondent of the Daily Champion , writing from Arkansas City, Southwestern Kansas, says, "that a man named Thompson arrived there on tho 20th inst.. who states that on the 11th Inst, ho was robbed by a band of Indians near Modioino Lodgo

They arrived at Modioino Lodgo Crook near tho south lino on tho Bth inst. They had with them a span ,of horses, wagon, camp equipage, and about $l,O 00 in money. On Friday, the lltli inst., Thompson was about a quarter or a mile from camp, whon ho saw 800 or 400 Indians surround It. Shortly' oftorwords ho heard firing and saw tho Indians using tomahawks on his comrades. Ho supposes they wore all killed at the time of tho attack. Part of tho Indians took him prisoner, and rob bed him of all ho had, hut finally lot him go. Ho arrived at Caldwell about noon on tho 14th. While there ho was told that nine others wore killed on Medicine Lodgo Crook by tho Indians about tho oamo time bis camp was attacked. Ban Francisco, April 23.— There is no further nows to-night from tho Modoo war.

Tho Modocs wore compelled to evacuate their first hiding-place in consequence of tho scarcity of wator. The Indians are now three miles from wator. Gen.

Hanley in command, have started in pursuit. Washington, April 23.—Gen. Pope, command ing the Department of Missouri, says that all tho parties sent out by tho Government will have protection while within his jurisdiction, if * they will report to him.

FIRE INSURANCE. Seventh Annual Convention of tho National Board of Underwriters— Proceeding!* Vcatorday* New Yoke. April 28.—Tho seventh annual con vention of tho National Board of Flro Under writers commenced to-day, Ilonry A. Oakley presiding. There was a very largo attendance. The President in his address said: “The Chi cago and Boston fires demonstrated that insur ing in companies that charged a small competi tive premium was very had policy. Their pre miums on risks wore so low that when heavy losses came they wore unable to meet them, ana tho policy-holders suffered. Referring to tho Boston firo, ho said that tho total loss was estimated at $70,000,000. On this there was an insurance in Massachusetts companies of $95,000,000, over $15,000,000 in companies in other States, and over $4,000,000 in companies of other countries. Of this amount, $80,876,843 had boon paid, which makes 05.73 per cent of tho entire losses. Regarding rates, ho said that after tho Chicago flro, when it was found uecos- S to advance rates 50 por cent on account of a no of business, tho puhlio mot it with good fooling, and cheerfully acquiesced In tho ad vauco. Tho President referred to the now dis criminating schedule of rates, varying in pro portion to tho safety from flro of tho property insured, and said it had boon favorably received and led to excellent rosalts. Tho statistics in tho address of tho President showed a total expenditure of 110 70-100 por cent for 1873, or a loss of $0,820,800 by tho companies connected with business in this country. Tho report of the Committee on Statistics showed there are in tho country 40,844 cotton, papor, flouring, and grist mills, boot and shoo factories, woolen mills, and hardware manufac turics, and assuming that tho average amount paid by each for insurance is SIOO por annum, there ore in tho aggregate $4,084,400, equal in amount to 16 por cent of tho insurance pre miums collected by all tho companies in 1871. Tho report dosed by recommending an appro priation for tho collection of needful informa tion for more safely estimating tho rates. Tho announcement was made that tho State Superintendents wore in full sympathy with tho National Board of Underwriters. Committees wore appointed, and tho Board adjourned till to-morrow.

WASHINGTON, April 23.—tu- ovonlnff Admin istration organ to-day is moved to an editorial statement relative to a paragraph sent some time since in those dispatches regarding tup movement to nominate Speaker Blaine for the Presidency In 187 G. It says: The recent enthusiastic mention of Sneaker Blaine's name for tho Presidency, at a dinner-table Bitting of a few gentlemen of some political prominence, seems tn have caused quite a ferment In various quartern;' anil tho protoctfon/ata of Pennsylvania aro . dlt posed to mako waif&ro upon tho proposed nomination,, on tho ground that Mr. Blaine Is not sound on tho tariff question; ’ ‘ that" is to say, though not a free-trader bo la supposed to favor a reduction In high tariff rates, whore reduction is Just and practicable. Mr. Blaine is too astute a politician not to boo that this early mention of bis name for tho Presidency is calculated to do him more harm than good, and wo aro safe lu assuming thixt the present talk about him In that connection has been without his Instigation or consent; hut If tho Penn sylvaulo protectionists roally go ou in this blun dering way of declaring opposition to him in advance, they will put tho free-traders up to considering the question of bis eligibility as a candidate on that platform, and It is likely that tho free-traders will have quite as much to say In regard to tho question who shall bo our next President as the protectionists; especially should tho former bo rein forced, aa seems probable, by tho formidable organiza tion of producora known as tho Patrons of Husbandry.
