8 POOR DE BELLOY. The Checkered Career of a French Marquis. The 17;.s and Downs of an Im practical Gentleman. losses on 'Change Drive Him to Seek tho Grave of a Suicide. The Chicagoan rapidity with which France la recovering from her humiliating lesson received from Germany, is of great benefit to tho disci ples of euthanasia. It is especially French in idea, and, furthermore, numbers among Its ad herents more Frenchmen than any other nation ality. There is something comical about a Frenchman's idea of snlcido. “ When in doubt, die," appears to bo his motto. If bio mistress * miles upon a rival, ho bows with inimitable grace and shoots himself like a well-bred gentle man. ITo is not cowardly enough to shoot his rival. It would bo impolite. Bobo scatters bis own brains out. Ho has no horrors of sulcldo,— rather likes the Idea of it, apparently. . An excellent illustration of a Frenchman’s idea of life is found In tho checkered career of the Marquis Do Balloy, who yesterday chose a boor-saloon in which to sacrlfioo himself. Tho jflaoo selected is indescribably ludicrous, taken in connection with the rank and brooding of tho suicide. But perhaps it would bo bettor to give a short biography of this truly commendable tnan, to wind np with the manner of bis death* The first thing known of him is that ho is a French Marquis, “ la good standing,” is because his attempted suicide is not yet successful—ls the failure that everything else has boon with pim. When quite a young man ho foil heir to property worth SBOO,OOO in gold. His titlo and his money, whore money goes a long way, made life exceedingly enjoyable to him. So full of life was ho, that ho did Paris and tho rest of Europe in two years. Ho could havo continued doing it, had not his money given out, leaving xmly SBO,OOO between him and absolute beggary. %Vhat was SBO,OOO to a French Marquis who had done Paris ? Absolutely nothing. Bo ho came to the United States, where it would go only about half as far, and landed in Now York. Dur ing his sojourning in Paris ho had mado tho ac quaintance of an estimable Now York family,who returned to this country with him. Ho was a groat favorite. Young, witty, good looking* musical, a philosopher, utterly skeptical of everything, and as polished a disciple of Vol taire os over landed in Now York City. Such a man finds money vanish with a rapidity known only in this country, where everything costs about twice as much as In Europe. It is not eurprislng that a very short time sufficed to re duce his SBO,OOO to SIO,OOO. This was disgust ing, so ho wont to Utica. Utica is not a pretentious city, but our Mar quis was happy for a while. Ho mot Mr. N. K. Falrbank there, and tho two gentlemen became friends. Ho remained in Utica some time, and wandered Westward to Michigan, where bo spent one winter in tho backwoods, fishing, hunting, enjoying himself immensely, •nd wooing a most charming lady, as only a French gentleman can woo. When his sports came to an end bo enmo West to Chicago, and again mado himself quite at homo hero. His good fortune appeared to stick by him pretty closely, for though ho bankrupted himself in enoculation. or came so near it that min stared him in tho face, a convenient relative died and loft him a fortune of some SBO,OOO. But speculation was too much for Mm. Ho In vested m grain receipts and other snares, and coon found himself Hat on his financial back again. This was very hard, but not to a mer curial Frenchman. Ho ohniggod his shoulders and found himself itho possessor of a few thousand dollars. Ho concluded to go back to Michigan the following winter and hunt, hint ing that ho would get married boforo the sea son was over. Accordingly ho hunted and wedded the charming lady who now mourns over his prostrate body. Speculation had no charms for him in tho city, so ho started a coun try grocery in the wilds of Michigan, made lovo to Ins beautiful wife, and lived there till four or five children wore born, by which time hoVyas, of course, bankrupt. * Under tho circumstances* ho returned to tho city and gave lessons in music, but this did not cult him, and ho gave it up,as being monotonous and stupid. Ho therefore wrote a brilliant lecture on spiritualism, which ho secretly regarded os a most gigantic fraud, and so ably presented It that ho made many converts and a few hundred dollars. But the thing grew stale, and ho was too honorable to bo oblo to preach what ho did Aofc believe after tho novelty had worn off, and Lo gave up spiritualism for speculation onco more. Luck seemed to smile upon him. A friend from Franco came along with 800,000, and tbo two sot to work to loso it oil In speculation in Iho. shortest possible space. They wore very •successful In ibis direction, and wore soon re duced to penury. Nothing could daunt M. De Bolloy. 110 bad shown himself to his social acquaintances a most brilliant and versatile gentleman, the soul of honor; bo had proved to tbo satisfaction of tbo Board of Trade that ho was as unfortunate a speculator as any man could bo. Ho now showed his indomitable pluck by hiring himself out as a laborer in Mr. Fairbanks establishment at $1.76 a day. Mr. Falrbank liked him very much, and determined to assist him to a bettor position as soon as ho showed any desire for it, but the Marquis got tired of tbo laborious work, and itched to make money on tho Board. Hr. Falrbank generously advanced him $3,000, ■ set him up os a broker, and for onco M. Be Bolloy’s worldly prospects began to brighten gradually. But betook to speculation again, and' lost heavily. He was perpetually losing. Mr. Falrbank, before bo went to Now Orleans, lot it bo known that ho would bo security tor an addi tional SI,OOO, but that followed the rest. Tbo Marquis woo caught in tho great “corner.” lost his credit, and at last his courage. His imme diate wants were supplied by email remittances from France, but bis courage was at zero, and the outlook was gloomy. Since Friday last he bos boon especially despondent, and was prepared for almost anything. On Monday be offered to bet S6O that be would not live another week. Tho same day bo pulled out a pistol in Wolford’s saloon and pointed tbo muzzle at his bead, and would probably have used it had it not boon knocked out of bis band. I Between 5 and 6 o’clock last evening, be went Into Korcboff’uboor saloon, No. 122 South Clark etreot, in company with Messrs. J. E. Brown, whoso office is ot No. 127 LaSalle street, and B. Cbamplln, Esq., of No. C2B West Erie etreot. Ho sat down to a table and • ordered a glass of beer. While it was being -drawn he pulled out a small revolver, placed tbo ■muzzle to bis forehead, fired, and fell off the Beat. Tho doors wore instantly locked, os the report of tbo pistol bad already brought a crowd to them, and tho wounded man. with a bullet buried in bis brain, was placed upon his feet. He thereupon walked to tbo bar. tbo blood streaming down bis face, shook bauds with sev eral persons, and apologized in tho politest con ceivable manner for tbo inconvenience bo bad caused tho proprietor, and bocamo insensible. Br. Farwell was sent for, dud arrived in time to find the poor follow insensible. Ho examined the wound, and pronounced it fatal. A back was procured, and tbo unfortunate gentleman taken in it to bis bouse, No. 703 West Washington etroot. ° While the story of his life is ludicrous, and the circumstances of this tragedy are not desti tute of a certain amount of humor, there is no one in this city who will bo mourned as ho will if bodies An accomplished gentleman, honora ble, kindly, brilliant, and generous, ho won that esteem winch all tho money that passed through his hands could not have bought for him. LATER. Tho physician who Is attending Mr. Pe Bolloy (tho gentlemen who shot himself yesterday afternoon) is convinced that ho is not danger ously wounded. An examination of tho scalp, late last evening, showed that tho ball did not enter the brain, but glanced off and lodged near Hie loft touiplo. It was removed without diffi culty; oud, although suffering considerably at present, Mr. Polialloy will not bo indisposed for more than a week or two. niff nxciimiou Party* Paubonh, Kb., April 24.—Gov.

Sherman to a friend in Washington t IlBADQUAnxins Ajimtop tith Unttid States,! Washington, D. 0., April 17, 1873. ) Dead Sms I havo your letter of thisdato, and am unwilling in a private letter to express my opinion on all tho questions you make. Tho army has no “ policy ” about Indians or anything olso. It has no voice in Congress, but accepts the laws as enacted and tbo Interpreta tion thereof by tbo proper oificials, and executes them with os much Intelligence, fidelity, and hu manity as any other body of citizens. From the organization of Government up to 1850, the In dians and Indian Bureau woro under the War Department, so that nearly all tbo civilization and Christianization of tho In dians thus for accomplished, occurred un der army supervision. To-day, in case an Indian suitors wrong, I believe be will bo more likely to appeal to tbo commanding offi cer of tbo nearest military post than to bis own agent; for in the one be sees with bis eyes tho evidence of a force to compel obedience, where as in the other nothing of tho kind. In like manner I believe tbo annuities io treaty Indians would reach tho parties in interest quite as sure ly through army officers as through civilians. And when Indians havo committed depreda tions—-as is very common—and tho annuities are chargeable with tbo amount of damages, such stoppages could moro safely bo made by a com manding officer having soldiers at his back than by ah agent afraid of bis life, as too many of them are and have reason io bo. Tlio present Indian Agents, as a class, are very good men ; but they lack the force, the power, which sav ages alone respect. Tbo existing policy, usually caliod tho poaco policy, is to gradually asseroblo tho wandering tribes on reservations, with boundaries clearly defined, and then, through civilians, to instruct thorn in agriculture and tho rudor arts, and edu cate them as far as possible. To this I think no army officer objoota. And ? further, when tho Indians leave their reservations to steal, murder, and plunder, they fall under tho jurisdiction of tho army, This Is tho theoretical condition of tilings, but it would require ton times onr present army to mako a cordon around tbo reservations, so that murders aro done, tho stealing of cnttlo, horses, etc., perpetrated, and tho Indians quickly escape to tbeir reservations, where the troops cannot follow them: so that in fact thoso reser vations help thorn in their lucrative business. I am safo-in saying that half tho horses and mules now owned by tbo Kiowos, Comanches, Chey ennes, Arapaliocs, Sioux, «to., —all treaty In dians. all at peace, with agencies and annuities,— havo boon stolon from tbo United States or from oitizons. I have myself soon, at tho Kiowa and Comanche Agency, and at several of tho Sioux agencies, horses and mules branded <( U. S.” led up to bo packed with annuity goods, and I uovor hoard of an agent demanding tho restitution of one for that reason;. and, though murders are of so frequent occurrence, I do not hoar of tho mur derers being surrendered, as is required by tbo treaties. Again, though tho Sioux and Chey ennes aro at peace, tho army has to send escorts with all trains and parties of surveyors who go rightfully to work within tho borders of sneb States os Kansas and Nebraska, as though actual war existed. All I will venture to assort 10, that tbo army lias a ranch moro difficult task now than if wo woro actually nt war, and could anticipate depredations and follow tbo perpetra tors to tbotr very camp, os I did in tbo caoo of tbo Kiowao two yoars ago. Thou tbo Texas peo ple were constantly complaining that tbo treaty Indiana woro depredating on tbolr property, killing tbolr pooplo and taking rofngo on their 1 would not bollovo it until T wont n person,and was actually near by when Santauta killed Bovoa poor toamstora in Texas, one of whom was found bumod, tied nt tho wngon wheol, and a few days after bo oamo to tbo agency at ForUSUI, boasting of the deed. With the approval of tbo agent, Mr, Tatum, I arrest ed mm and two others and sent thorn to Texas for trial. Now lam told that Santanta is to bo turned looso again, although 1 bollovo bo has committed fifty murders, ana baa notorious ly violated ovory promise hitherto made. No gonoral rnlo will answer for tbo govern ment of ovory tribe, but each must bo treated according to tbolr conduct, and, I think, tbo army officers aro better qualified to judge than tho average of citizens, though I am by no

moans anxious that this disagreeable duty should bo imposed on. ns. If tho Christian agents can bettor control tho wild savages, I wish them all success: but, suroly, tbo wbito pooplo who venture into tho wilderness to labor and toil, aro entitled to tho protection of their, lives and property ; and it Is natural that they should feol the greatest interest, although it is tho exclusive privilege of Congress to dovise tho best moans to secure this end. Many good pooplo residing oast of the Alio gbanlos mistake tho character of tho emigrant population who have of luto years brought mill ions of acres under cultivation, and produced fifty or sixty millions of gold and silver, where, twenty years ago, a white man dared not ven ture. Those pooplo aro of tbo samo kind as set tled In Ohio, Indiana, and lowa.; thoy aro as good as wo aro, and woro wo in their stood wo would act just as they do. I know it, because I have been ono of them. Thoy now pay choir full shore of taxes, and contribute to our national wealth and power. As a rule tho emigrants do objoot that tho Indians should forovor remain non-producers. beggars, and robbors, if not worse. If tbo Indians are willing to work, as thoy used to, in tho gold mines of California, nobody wUI prevent them. So to-day, if tho Cheyennes, Arapahoos and Kiowas will ntillzo tho beautiful pastoral loud assigned them in raising stock, they will soon become tho richest pooplo in tho Southwest; bat this thoy havo not done, and it looks as though they novor will. And tbo question will surely arise, and that very soon, bow long must tho Government continue to olotho and food them without any assurance of self-support ? Tho pressure of white settle ments ou tbo borders of Indian reservations is nothing now. It has gono on for 200 years, and mast go on, and tbo In dions must conform. In somo instances thoy 'will do it without resistance, in others thoy will resist, and in somo cases injustice will bo done ; but suroly oar Government cau novor ad mit to practice tho prinoiplo that ono wrong justifies another; ana a greater, that because tho soldiers in Now Mexico chase and kill a few Choyonnos near Fort Basoom, who aro moro than a hundred miles off tbolr reservation to steal horses, tboy can go and kill tbo surveyors near Comp Supply engaged in a lawful survey ; and because “ Whistler 1 ' has boon killed bysomo murderer on tho Republican, thoy must demand of the Government an indemnity in ponies, also bis death must bo avenged on any stranger. Those aro not supposititious cases, but oases ac tually ponding, and illustrate how far wo havo thus far progressed in tho groat work of civili zation. Tho affair with the Hodoos is not regarded as an exceptional case, nor lias it any couuootiou whatever with tho Apaches, Sioux, Cheyennes, Arapahoos, and Kiowos, that wander over a re gion of country four or five times as great as the whole State of California. Tho Modocs ore a small remnant of what used to ho called Pitt River Indians, {or Roguo River Indians, with whom wo have had several wars. They are familiar with tho habits of tho whites, ana havo soon gold dug from tho canyons of their moun tains, and have participated in it; have soon the wild valleys whore they used to hunt and Ash converted Into prosperous farms and ranchos; but In this they seem not to havo imi tated their white neighbors. Whether they havo sustained wrongs or not Is not tho ques tion, but they havo taken refuge in a natural fortress, havo defied tho civil and military agents, and, lastly, under a flag of truce, killed Con. Canny, who was their best friend 5 aud this was not an isolated fact, for about tho same time they decoyed Lieut. Sherwood within ro&ah of their rifles at another and distant part, and also stokllhily attacked Col. Mason's camp on the opj penile side from that whore Qon. Cauby and the Peace Commissioners wore shot.' All tho Mo docs ore Involved, and do not protend that tho murder of Qeu. Onnby was the individual not of Oapt. Jack. Therefore tho order to attack is against the wbolo, aud if all bo swept from the face of the earth they themselves have invited It. Tho place is like a fortress, and during an as sault the soldier cannot pause to dibUngaisbjbo- twoon male and fomalo, or ovan dlnorlmlnato as to ago} an long ns resistahoo la nlatlo, (loath must bo motod out, but tho moment all reslst- Mioo ceases tlio firing will atop and Iho survivors tumod ovor to Iho proper Indian ngout. Tlila wholo matter must bo loft to tbo ofllcora on tho spot, and thoso must bo sboltorod against iho howl such as followed MaJ. Baker after tho Piegan attack, as also God. Oustor after his attack on Black Kettle's camp. There is not much danger of too much barm being done. To bo offoollvo and ex emplary tbo blow must Involve tbo lorriblo { enough to Impress tbo -kindred tribes of Kla mnths and Pl-Utcs. I boliovo tbo civilians and soldiers wish tbo s&mo and, and, in fact, do not differ much as to tbo process. All Indians must bo mado to know that when tbo Government commands tboy must obey, and until that state of mind Is reached, through persuasion or fear, wo cannot bopo for poaco. lam yours, with rospoot, W.
