Another Frullftil Scout in the Wake of the Retreating Savages* Soar-Faced and Several Other Charleys Magnanimously Surrender. Jack with Throe of His ' War riors Again Escajio. San Francisco, Judo I.—Camp Banes of Wil low Greek, Twenty*onb Miles Northeast op Boyle’s Camp, Tulh Lake Peninsula, May 29 —7 p. m.—Tho cavalry and artillery commands and Warm Spring Indians, under Col. Orodn, loft Boyle’s Camp at 2 o’clock this morning, and rodoinhot haste to Clear Lake, whore Qon. Davis issued special orders for tho scouts, Bogus Charley, Steamboat Frank, Shacknasty Jim, and Hooka Jim, who accompanied tho expedition, to load tho way to Jack’s Willow Crook re treat. . They led tho troops to a point near Jack’s Point, within a mile of tho stronghold. Copt. Hasbrouok passed up the north side of tho crook with his squadron, andGapt. Jackson’s squadron wont over tho crook along the south side. Oapt. Hasbrouok, having bad a mile farther to travel than Capt. Jackson, did not arrive at the stronghold in timo to mako the de sired connection. Jack was nevertheless sur prised. At 2 o'clock this afternoon, Jackson’s men came across two plokots on tho bluff near tho crook, and ran thorn through tho juniper to Jack’s retreat. Tho fleeing Modocs cried out, ,4 Bun quick I Bun quick I Soldiers coming.” Oapt. Jackson deployed his skirmishers along tho face of tho bluff. Though expecting to receive a heavy Are, tho men ran to tho front like door, under tho load of officers. Suddenly tho Modocs conversant with English cried out: 44 Surrender! Surrender 1 We no fight; wo want to talk peace. Wo like peace talk.” Boston Charley, tho murderer of Bov. Dr. Thomas, came in full view, and was immediately covered by a dozen Iflos. Charley offered to surrender, and asked obo allowed to come Into camp. As ho feared ho Warm Spring scouts, ho threw down his iilo, and extend od his hand in token of friend hip . ’The proffered member was cordially by tho scouts. Charley was then passed ) roar, under guard. Next ho was token to the other Modoo captives, and ’by them interviewed. Ho says that several of Jack’s best warriors wonted to leave him and come into our comp, and volunteered to put up the job. His-gun was returned him, and ho was allowed to depart on this mission. Hardly had this arrangement boon offootod when a rifle in tho hands of Steamboat Frank was accidentally discharged. Several Modocs, who stood with uplifted hands, decamped at this point. The accident was explained to Char ley, and all suspicion of foul play was banished, when another accident caused Charley more an noyance. Oapt. Haabrouck’s command reached the odgo of tho creek >aa Charley came over tho bluff, and, of course, ho was gathered in as a prisoner a second time. Two hours afterward ho was released and sent ® ~Q r, tho fleeing Modocs, but ho failed to overtake them. Not a shot othor than the accidental one was fired. Had Hasbrouck formed tho desired connection in time tho en tire band would havo been killed or captured. It was impossible for his command to accomplish tho task. Bis troops did all that ootild bo douo by any man. They rodo over fragments of lava, and one mile farther than tho distance ridden by Cant. Jackson’s command. Tho surprise re sulted in the surrender of Boston Charley, Prin cess Mary, sister of Capt. Jack, Black Jim’s woman, and five othor fomalo Modocs from 9 to 00 years of age, and captured several ponies and mules. The Modocs actually slipped from tho grasp of tbo troops. There was no help for tide result, Jock’s retreat this time was inside of a canon, through which runs Willow Crook. The canon has precipitous sides averaging forty feet high. There are few places whore tho canon can bo en tered by troons within six miles of Jack’s last homo. Tho Modocs escaped by running down tho canon. The Modoc captives will try to wean more of Jack's warriors from him. Many officers predict the speedy settlement of tho war. Wo sloop among the juniper to-night Lanqeli/s Yallev, May 80—5 a. m.—At 0 o clock yesterday morning, tho troops loft Willow Crook camp for a sharp and decisive scout, and mot with admirable success. Tho Warm Springs Indians trailed tho Modocs across tho creek aud in a northeasterly direction, then due north, and finally to tho rocky cliff bordering Langoll’s Valley on tho east. This scout from tho outset was tho moat exciting of tho campaign, Tho freshness of tho tracks and apparent proximity of tbo Modocs caused continued excitement. Led over ridges of mountains, along canons and valleys, and over small streams of water, tho route was traveled with difficulty by tho best-trained horses. Milos upon miles of lava in a fragmentary form wore crossed, and the troops literally loft behind thorn a trail of blood and horse-shoes. Several miles south of the volley the scouts lost the trail, and wo suf fered a detention of two hours. Tho halt was broken by sudden yells from tho Warm Springs and cheers from the soldiers. The command u Forward!" was given by Col. Oroou. Scouts woro called out to tho right and left of tho line and covered the trail, Then came Troop K, of tho First Cavalry, Maj. Oreaaon commanding, Lieut. Bacon in charge of skir mishers. Troop K belongs to tho squadron with Captain Jackson. Capt. Hasbrouck’s squadron hold another equally important posi tion, and was, as usual, on' time. Along tho crest of the bluff and down tho steep trail on its side charged tho entire force of 230 men. Sud denly four rifle-shots wore fired from tho rooks, and four bullets whizzed over tho soldiers. A lino of skirmishers, deployed along the crest of tbo bluff, started the Modocs from their lair. About this time Scar-Face Charley and two or throe other Modocs rushed down tho rooks and ariod out, “Wo surrender; don’t shoot." Five Modocs came in, and at once hostilities ceased. Dr. Oabanoss, of Yroka, the surgeon who has long been acquainted with tho Modocs, wont up among tho rooks and made peace negotiations. All tho Indians, including Jack, agreed to come in. Cabaness slept with them last night. A few momenta since Ocar-Face Charley, Old Schon chin, and ten warriors surrendered. Capt. Jack and throe others decamped by night. Boston, Juno I.—Tho messenger of the Bo vero National Bank, named Allen, disappeared last Thursday, with chocks and drafts amount ing to $30,000, on which ho raised SB,OOO cash. What ho did with tho remainder is unknown. It is possible that ho may have converted the pa per into money otherwise than at bank. Just before leaving tho bank on Thursday morning, bo waa informed that his services would not bo required there after June 1. Bobort N. Dudley is under arrest hero, charged with receiving and disposing of drafts and other valuables stolon from molls* His alleged accom plice waa B. M. ‘Wales, a routo postal-clerk be tween Toledo and Buffalo, who was arrested about a year ago. Dudley is said to havomado over $50,000 by his operations. Ho had recently purchased a handsome cottage at Mtaapan, near this city, under tho nemo of E. H. Purcell. Tho establishment waa taken possession of yesterday by tho Government ofllcore, and its occupants committed to jail. Ho will probably bo sent West for trial. 6EOOUD A GO., 167Stato-et., Chicago, m, Tho Annapolis Naval Academy.

Washington, D. 0., June l.—The Virginia Republicans arc becoming thoroughly frightened at tho compactness of the OonserratiTO or Op position organization in that State. Tho Ad-; ministration organ is driving tho campaign from a Washington standpoint, as if tho fato of tho nation depended upon its exertions. It has sug gested tho nomination of Goorgo E. Donoal, a native of tho State, for Governor, by tho Lynch burg Convention, and has otherwise interfered to upset tho calculations of tho State Republi can politicians who are in favor of nominating Judge Hughes. The latter is not tho choice of Senator Lewis andhis clique, but is supported by tho carpet-bag element. It is evident, oven at this early date, that tho Convention will bo a stormy one. Tho Republican clique, under tho leadership of Senator Lewis and his son-in-law, J. Ambler Smith, Representative-elect from the Richmond District, will violently oppose the schemes of Messrs. Platt. Stowell, and other loading carpet-baggers, including Rush Burgess, against which latter they have an especial grudge on account of his personal popularity with tho President, which has enabled him to retain his place as Internal Reve nue Collector in spite of tho confirma tion of Dr. Smith by tho Senate. This act of tho President’s in retaining Burgess indi cates tho preference of tho Administration for tho carpet-bag faction, and his repeated acts of friendship for Mosby indicates that ho Is disposed to ignoro tho Lewis-Smith clique altogether. Tho Conservatives object to this Administration interference in the local political affairs of Vir ginia, and some of tho native Badioata, particu larly those who follow tho load of Senator Lowis, threaten to bolt tbo ticket if tho management of tho Lynchburg Convention is retained by tho present Washington influences. The material suggestions at issue regarding railroad laws and other internal improvements seem to be overshadowed by tho fear that tbs State may bo reduced to the financial degra dation which prevails in South Carolina, owing to thoso important schomos falling into tho bands of an irresponsible carpet-bag govern ment. Philadelphia collectobship. Tho President to-day authorizes the statement that he was not the guest of Senator Cameron during his late visit to Philadelphia, and that there are no charges against Collector Burley, of Philadelphia, which would justify his removal. This would seem to indicate that Cameron's desire for this removal will not ho ‘gratified. Cameron's friends, however, are confident that the removal will bo made during the coming summer, . THE DEBT STATEMENT. The indications are that the debt statement to-morrow will show a decrease of about $4,000,- QQOJn the public debt, notwithstanding the largo disbursements uu account of warrants for relief acts, river and harbor and light-honso appropri ations by Congress, which wore made available upon demand, and which have boon largely drawn upon during the last month. [To'the AasociaUd Press.) Washington, Juno I.— Anothorloanof $4,000,- 000, payable -in thirty-eight years, is proposed, to continue the street improvements under the direction of the Board of Public Works of the District of Columbia, a bill having been intro duced for that purpose in the Legislature. The Secretary of the Treasury has directed the Assistant Treasurer of Now York to give notice that during the month of Juno ho will purchase $500,000 In bonds on the first and third Wednes days each, and will sell $2,000,000 in gold on the first and third Thursdays each, and $1,500,000 on tho second and fourth Thursdays each. Iu all, bo will sell $7,000,000 gold and purchase $1,000,- 000 in bonds. FIRES. Destructive Conflagration in Peru* 111.—Fires elsewhere. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune . LaSalle, 111., Juno I.—Tho most destructive conflagration over experienced in Peru broke out in that city at about I o’clock this morning, in a row of brick stores known os tho Block. The origin of tho fire is unknown, but tho flames wore first discovered in a grocery oc cupied by Michael Murphy. Tho city being des titute of any fire-engine, tho fire spread rap idly, and soon destroyed five stores with most of their contents, and greatly damaged tho sixth. Tho following statements of losses and insur ance will probably prove to bo correct : J* L. McCormick's loss on buildings, $31,000; insurance, $22,000. It. &A. D. Murry had a stock of $60,000 worth of dry goods, and $lO 000 worth of boots and shoos. Moat of the dry goods wore saved, but in bad disorder, while tho estructiou of tho boots and shoes was almost complete. Probable loss about $30,000; in sured for $20,000. William Penning, grocer, loss $2,000 ; insured $1,200. Michael Murphy! grocer, loss $2,000 j insured $1,500. B. Denny! dealer in stoves and tinware, loss $4,000 ; in sured $l,lOO ; Ever & Noimki, carriage manu facturers, loss S7OO ; no insurance. J. H. McCormick, lost library and valuable Srivato papersj no insurance. Julius Hoiuoch, ustico of tho Peace, lost library and important public records. The totalloss will fall Little, if any, short of SBO,OOO or $85,000. Baltimoub, Juno I.—A fire this morning de stroyed the chemical works of Prank Slinguff & Go. Loss, $60,000 ; insurance, $42,000. Another Victim of “ Non-Explosive.” Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, Evanston, 111., June I.—Koroaono oil baa bo* cured another victim to bo added to tbo long list of those who boliovo it is non-oxploßlvo. Mrs. Erasmus Iverson, tho wife of a watchmaker in tho employ of F. Lion, was so severely burned by kerosene oil this morning that her life is despaired of. Sho aroao at G o’clock and started a fire, but, the firo not burning rap* idly enough to suit her, she tried to hasten it by pouring oil on from a can containing about half a gallon. Tho fluid instantaneously exploded, and onvolopod her in a sheet of flame. Her husband camo to her rescue, but did not succeed in extinguishing tho flames until tho poor vic tim of her own folly was burned beyond recov ery. Mr. Iverson and his wife wore occupying a suite of rooms over J. Boll’s drug-store. Irish Nationality* Baltzuoub, Juno I.—Arrangements are being made for a national convention of Irish-born citizens to bo hold in Cleveland, Ohio, about tho 15th of July next, for tho purpose of forming a a league, similar to tho Gorman Union. Some of tho loading Irishmen of Now York, Philadel phia, and other cities, encourage tho movement, on tho ground that tuo Irish element lu this country have not the standing, politically or commercially, which thoir numbers and impor tance entitle them. They say tho Gormans ex ceed them in almost every sphere, and that this

is duo to thoir default of cohesion and harmony, and to religious and political contention. Irish men, like members of tho German Union, will bo pledged to support one another in preference to persons of other nationalities,without distinc tion of seot or parties. llallroad Nows* St. Louis, Juno I.—From correspondence published to-day it is learned that the Atlantic A Pacific Bailroad Company, through thoir attor neys, have withdrawn from what was understood to bo an agreed case between them and State Attorney-General Ewlug to tost tho constitu tionality of the act of the Legislature relating to tho State’s lieu on tbo Missouri Pacific Ball- road. It is not improbable that tho rood will now bo advertised for solo by Gov. Woodson, undor authority of tho concurrent resolution passed by tho Legislature last winter. An interview with William Tausoing, Presi dent of tho Union Depot Company, discovers tho fact that tho project of building tho Union Ball road Depot in connection with tho bridge and tunnol now in process of construction In this olty has boon abandoned for tho present, and that a temporary depot will bo.buUt on the Illi nois sido of tho rivor at tho eastern ond of tho brldgo by tho railroad companies directly inter ested.

VIENNA’S “BLACK FRIDAY." Tho Financial Crisis in the Austrian Capital* Vienna {Hay 12) Correspondence of the New York r _ t H'orW» Tlio Vienna Stock Exchange, Ukothatof Now York, has had at loot Ha “Black Friday" ■ 'ln oluor words, a financial crisis has In a foi iaya modohavoo among mlllionairoa and pal Cfizotl trade. Suspecting that Americana aro‘. 2 so thoroughly posted upon Vienna affairs v£*‘ho Importance of tbo city morlta, I must pi 1 (ec that over since 1800—the year of tho A ~s*o* Prussian war—Vienna has boon thocontro» Hha moat active speculation. That war, ao hi* U oting to Auatrla In its military and polttio » V suits, gave a strange impulse to Austrian ; 2 > morco and industry. Ever slnco 1800 tbo tli n f speculation baa boon running higher < i higher. Now banka, now manufactu » companies, now . building companies ,started up over night, until thoro seemed to bo no limit to tbo expansive power of Austrian capital end credit. Not having the statistics at this moment before mo. I cannot givo exact figures; but at least ono thousand millions' worth of now- stock wok placed on the Vienna market during 1872 alone. Of course, every sound headed financier know that a crash must como. But tho cry of “wolf "was raised so often that bvory one ceased looking out for him until ho was actually,at tho door. Last Wednesday tho horizon bocaroo overcast. A “pool,” trying to carry a largo amount of fancy stock, failed to tho amount of several millions. This broko tho entire market. Thursday matters grow worse, and reached their climax on Friday. On this last day, if I may trust tbo loose statements of the prose, no loos than 110 failures wore entered. Those who claim to be eye-witnesses say that tho scones on 'Change baffle description. Reading off the names of brokers and firms that failed to moot their en gagements was like tho call of tho death-roll in tbo Roign of Terror. Many of tho lighter stocks wero swept out of tho market. Austrian loans, railroad shares of tho host companies, dropped 6, 10, 20, oven 60 per cent. On Fridayaftomoou it seemed impossible to raiso a loan on any secu rity. Tho boars bad things their cwn way. The branch house of Rothschild was accused of “bear ing” without mercy, and two of tho firm narrowly escaped being lynched. Two suicides have been reported, ana many more rumored. Tbo boars began to soo that unless relief waa given nothing would bo safo. On Friday evening a council wua hold, consisting of deputies from tho loading Srivato firms and public banks, and attended by io representative of tbo Ministry of Financo, and it was resolved to advance twenty millions as a loan to carry certain stocks, and also to pro pose moderate terms of settlement for those firms that wore on tho point of breaking. This action was mado known immediately and pro duced tho desired result on Saturday. Thoro wore still somo failures, but it became evident that the crisis was over. Tho outside public, aa is usual in such cases, also came to tbo relief. Everyone who hod a few thousand florins to spare profited by tbo low prices and bought in. This of itself eased tho market. Tho results of this crisis may bo briefly sum med up thus: The Vienna Exchange has boon cleared, as if by a hurricane, of fancy stocks. Hundreds of men who imagined themselves millionaires on Tuesday found themselves bog flora on Friday. But tho groat commoroial and ndustrial interests of Austria aro still intact. Tho manufactories will continue to do a good business, and tho railroads bavo all they oau cany. Tho final result of tho crisis will bo ben eficial, although tho present state of affairs la a cruel hardship. PERSONAL. Gen. Frank P. Blair, Jr., is yet at Richfield Springs, Otsego County, N. Y. His health is im proving. Col. Carroll D. Wright has boon appointed Chief of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in Mas sachusetts, In place of Qon. Oliver. 1 The Rev. John Williamson, of Dixon, 111., has boon elected principal of Jennings Seminary, at Aurora. It is understood that ho will accept. J. Enos Neff, who claims a seat in Congress; is one of tho owners of tho Fort Wayne (Ind.t Sentinel under tho now regime. Cant. George H. Bradbury, tho newly elected President of the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, has been one of tho most trusted Captains of the lino. Col. Thomas A. Scott intends to visit the money centres of Europe this summer, for the purpose of presenting to tho financiers of tho Old Worldtho superior advantages of tho Southern Pacific Railroad os a source of investment. ' . James P. Clark, form any years a Boad-Mostor of the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad, will soon take charge of tho mountain division of tho Union Pacific Railroad, vice P. J. Nichole, who will assume tho Superintondoncy of the eastern division, with headquarters at Omaha. Wo hardly know what to think of tho remarka ble dispatch which describes a covenant said to have been entered into by Henry Ward Beecher, Henry 0. Bowen, and Theodore Tilton. The effect of tho publication of the document must be to bring what Is known as tho ,4 Boochor scan dal "to a crisis. It is not improbable that there Is a huge hoax in tho dispatch, and that no such “covenant” was over mode, if tho factsallogod are true, then Mr. Beecher has acted very un wisely m keeping silent under the charges brought against his personal chastity. When innocent men are accused in that way, their im pulse is not to keep silence.' Snob a course is apt to load to a suspicion that they are afraid to speak lost they might say too much for their own good. A really innocent man .is seldom afraid to denounce ms accusers and dare them to bring on their proof or else to hold theU peace. —Jiuffalo Commercial Advertiser. A ITlisgruldod Book-Agent* A book-agent entered tho open door of a snug Pittsfield cottage one day last week, and nod ding to a trim, bright-looking little woman who sat sowing by tho window, commenced volubly to descant on the merits of a groat work which ho was for tho first time giving mankind an op portunity to purchase. It was a universal biogra phy, cook-book, dictionary, family physician, short-hand instructor, and contained, be* sides, a detailed history of every important event that has transpired in tho world, from the ap ple incident and Adam's fall to Credit Mobilioi and tho fall of Congress. Tho work contained 6,000 chapters, all with running titles, Tho agent, after talking on tho general excel lences of tho volume about fivo minutes, com menced on tho headings of thoso chapters, and ai tho woman did not say a word to interrupt him, ho felt that ho was making a conquest, and he rattled away so that she shouldn’t have a chance to say no. It took him nearly half an hour, and as he breathlessly wont on, the eweat started on bis forehead, and he made oonvulaivi grasps at hls collar, and when he finished he bad hardily strength enough left to put on a bewitch ing smile and hand her his ready pen wberowitl to subscribe her name to tho order book. 6h< took tho pen, but instead of patting her auto graph on hls list, she lifted a scrap of papei from her work-box, and wroto in plain letters, “ Ime dofe and dum.” He said not a word, bm tho unutterable things that bo looked, as b t turned to tho door, would fill a library.
