ITho Danger of Delaying BOX torlals—Tweed’s Chief Sorrow. ' From Our Own Correspondent. ’ . . . ' • Nbw Yons,-Jun05,1873. Ths Bfiochor-TiUon-Bowdn scandal' la some thing that persona of proper mind and good taste would very willingly lot die. One would think that those throe gentlemen would bo very glad to have It sunk iu eternal oblivion ; but, .f. . : for some mysterious reason, they seem resolved to keep It before tho public, and to obtrude it upon everybody's attention. TUB OUEAT SCANDAL, For the lost eight or nine months, tho vile re ports with which tho clergyman, editor, and pub lisher are associated, have boon rising in some form or other, and almost always, apparently, at their prompting or instigation. Surely, no throe • men wore over more indiscreet or acted more un wisely. They do not appear to have a particle of common sense, and can blame nobody but themselves if muoh of what has boon said of them bo believed. They reveal Just enough to make people suspect the worst. 1 Why do they not toll all they havo to toll, or keep their own counsel? Their recent card, if It can bo called such, is ingen iously calculated to augment, instead of allay, public curiosity. Each one seemed to admit that he has boon guilty of some groat error or errors; says be is sorry for It, and will not do so any more. What are the errors ? What is ho sorry for ? Those are tho questions tho community Is asking, and which now domaud solution. There is very little doubt that both Bowen and Beecher, especially tho latter, have suffered in tho public estimation; and it is altogether owing to the inexplicable course they . havo pursued. They wore hold to bo wholly Innocent first, and would have been to tho lost, if they had in any manner preserved consistency. But they havo kept their tongues wagging, or their pons going, mouth after. month, until almost everybody fools some sort of right to know what is at tho bottom of all this half-expressed mystery. What was a mole-hill bos really become a mountain. I do not believe those men will bo allowed to stand behind their veiled intimations and contrite in ferences. They are all, in some sort, public characters; for they all claim to bo upright and honorable, and occupy the place of public load on. If Tilton and Bowen Lave slandered Beech • er, lot us know wherein they have slandered him. What .proportion of truth is there in tho charges mode against Beecher ? Tho vile scan dal, as it was primarily thought to bo, bos grown to bo a serious and important question, and one it behooves them to answer. Tho matter has passed out of their hands. It is no longer pri vate, nor can it bo kept so. Tho three men are at the bar of public opinion, and tho pubho claims the right to know what they have been doing, and how they have demeaned themselves jo tbe doing. The whole thing, bo It muoh or little, must bo laid open to the day, and, tho sooner they see tho need of this, the bettor it wiil'be for them. LITERARY IMPOSTERS, ' , 1 have boon particularly ixuproaaod, within two or three weeks, by the foot that & number of intelligent persons bad boon induced to be lieve that Will M. Carlotou did not write “ Betsey and 1 Are Out,” and that some woman named Emerson did. The claim of the woman «s simply a gross attempt at imposturo, os every body knows who knows anything about it; and the controversy on tho subject has boon en couraged and assisted by her publishers, with a direct view to selling a Look of versos—bod enough in tho main—which she assumes to have written. “ Betsey and I Are Out M does not amount to much, and is hardly worth discussion in respect to its authorship, were it not for tho theme of honesty at issue. All tho reputation Will Carloton has rests on those and a fow other kindred rhymes ; and, as they happen to bo popular, it is tho essence of meanness to deny co him tho right of originating them. I have had considerable experience with the peculiar class of persons who claim literary property that does not belong to them, and the Emerson woman is of a pattern with alltho rest. Her pretended modesty, sensitiveness, and shrinking disposition aro port of tho old story. All tho literary impostors I havo known have been advertised as of that species. I am not aware of tho number of generations of clergy men from whom Nannotto Emerson avers she is descended. If It bo from fifty generations it does not prevent her from being a shameless Sapphire. Tho trouble with those impostors is that they ore inspired falsifiers, and that their statements aro not bound by tho slightest ap proximation of truth. Their endless averments pass for truth, and tho righteous indignation of the genuine author for rage and mortification over demonstrated falsehood. You romombor, of course, tho discussion con cerning “ Bock Ho to Sloop. Mother, 1 ’ and how one Ball published a pamphlet—and a very spa cious ouo—to prove his claim to it. There is not a shadow of doubt that Elizabeth Akers, or Elizabeth Akers Alien, as sbo afterward become wrote tho versos, oud that Bali, years after thev had boon going tho rounds of tho press, con ceived the idea of declaring himself tho author of. them. Bo it was with “Beautiful Snow,” which nearly every, hack in tho laud has some time or other sworn to bo his. Thoro MO all kinds of montal hallucination: but it is not possible for any man or woman to claim to have written anything written by an other, without tho clearest consciousness of pre meditated imposture. Such offenders ought to bo pilloried actually os well as figuratively, and only after a long qxposuro bo permitted to ro turn to tho community, rendered too notorious to do further harm. souuTiiiNo roa stows. Speaking of impostors, a protended son of Byron has recently appeared here. Ho calls himself Oapt. Qeorgo .Gordon DoLuno Byron • is about 45 or 60 years of ago ; rather below tho medium size; aud has u German look and M< l? nt »«. thou ß h . ho epoaks English remarkably well. His story is, that his mother, whoso fam ily name was DoLuno, was of Spanish and noble blood; and that tho poot was clandestinely mar • ried to her, while traveling beyond the Pyrenees. A good many mon bom on tho Continent at tho proper time might have reasons for supposing themaolyos to he Byron’s sous ; tho moral lati tude which the bard over gave himself would rouder tho hypothesis at least plausible; “ ut . °°uld have boon secretly married to a feminine representative of an illustrious huo, whom nobod v over heard of, is altogether improbable. Cant Byron seems, however, to boliovo his own story —perhaps ho has become convinced of it by toll ing it so often,—and relates it with suoh circum stantiality of detail as to muko It interesting Ha does not appear to be a swindler or a trick ster of any sort, but a quiet, good-natured per son. who is a victim of a deep delusion. He obtained a commission as Captain early in tho War, with tho expectation and promise of serving on Gon. Fremont's staff, in tho South west { nut ho novor saw any service, and was soon mustered out: and has slnco wondered over this country and Europe, engaged in the laudable undertaking of earning bis own broad. u’He talks of certain suits that have been brought, or ore to bo brought, in hla name, against tho Byron estate} but theso must ho mere imaciu lags. • 6 AN AMERICAN SIONTEORIQTO.- Tora Scott, ay ho is familiarly etylod, la ronut oa to bo a Monto-Orlato In- promntnoea t anil, by tho fiuloat oxerolao of this quality, he la enabled to do all tho work devolving upon him on a grootrailway-mauogor.

SALMAGUNDI. Henry.Ward Beecher is said to liavo received at least 600 blackmailing lottors since his name naa gained such on unpleasant notoriety oa a Brooklyn ropreaontatlvo of Don Guzman do Al faraoho. i A prominent journalist ia credited with the authorship of tho play recently produced at one of the theatres hero as from tho pen of the wife of a noted politician. Those' claiming to know say that tho lady cannot oven write a private note without serious syntactical blunders. rmllcliona are pouring In from every quarter tbat'tbia will bo tho longest and hottest summer experienced by the proeont generation, and that the reign of the moaqultooa will become a ean guinary despotism. 'Thus far, Indications favor tho truth of tho phophooy. n Tho dlsMlynutago or holding book editorials is illustrated in tho foot that a loading journal was recently accuaod of stealing one of ’‘a articles, because, tho article had boon print ed, some weeks before, in a Hartford pa-' per, whore It was' supposed to bo original. Iho editorial hod boon written by one P* j*io staff' of tho metropolitan Journal; und boon luDortod in the semi-weekly edition, and bad enjoyed quite a run among tho ex changes before room could bo found for it in the •daily edition.. Tho Hartford paper had coplod lt without credit, and hence the unjust accusation. A private loiter from London says that nearly all the Americans who have found It convenient to quit this country under avloud have taken up their abode In that city. They used to go to Paris : but, since the unsettled condition of the French Capital, they prefer the banka of tho Thames to tho banka of the Seine. Boporta to• tho contrary uotwithatauding, Thomoa Noat will roturu Loro. oatly next .‘mimim. and roaumo Ida lobora on .Harper's Weekly. Instead of being very poor, as has boon roproaontod, ho ia anid to bo worth over SIOO,OOO. William M. Tweed, In a recent conversation with a prominent Democrat, said that ho had i frown a quarter of a century older in tho lost few years; end that what had weighed on him more than anything else was the porildy of hie professed friends. The Gormans and other foreigners attending Theodore Thomas' opon-nir concerts, at Central Park Garden, are very angry because the women who go there to hoar tho muaio wont td hove smoking abolished. I think tho women are right; for, man as I am, it is extremely unpleas ant—almost nauseating—to have cigars, often very poor ones, puffed iu your faoo for two long hours. Colstoun.

To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: Sin: An article with the above beading appeared In your paper on the loth Inst,, from tbo pen of tbo Rev. J, Blanchard, of Wheaton, which a pressure of bacinose provontod mo replying to boforo now ; but. oe It so outrageously untrue,.! doom it my duty to re ply, and ask space for so doing, as tho .publishers of tho Voice of Masonry, which ho calls tho organ of Mo sons in Chicago, quoting tho words of Robert Morris • " M&soury knows nothing about this flag or that flag.” Wo wish to correct this statement. Not only has Brother Robert Morris had no Interest In tho Voice for tho past nine or ten years, but we also deny that It can bo officially called tho organ of Masons in Chicago. True, wo ’deem It a pleasure to give insertion to any thing worthy of record, hero, or tho world over* but we have not the vanity tojlayany such claim’, although several of tho lato Grand-Masters of this JuSSfeuonf le * baV ° ® IVCa U8 oommoudatl ° ll la their ® okcß the farmers* granges merely a peg to hang his abuse of Masonry ou, upon which he Is a monomaniac, and Is a ill subject for a luuutio-asv lum when riding his favorite donkey. Do says, “These granges are a flank-movoraont of tbo Mosouio lodges to rope in tho fanners to that secret order,” How does ho know that 7 Whore is tho evidence 7 Whet lodges. an ? k? w ® ft ny, havo dared to break ono of tho cardi nal principles of Masonry which prohibits any lodge. “teSSVf 1 " tatro * uc *»BrcU B !wi or poUt?cs I am aware that no officer or member of the Masonlo lodge would think It proper to tako any notice of what tho Rev. J. Blanchard may say, considering It beneath notice; but we do not hesitate to do so, as It may possibly bo expected of us, If of anybody, iook tho.r.ofor°i “t hls array of names In opposition In former times to Masonry, may wo no t i n{ , u j roi what Is tho value of their testimony In excess of tho Con trary testimony of hundreds of other men In favor of the order, equally prominent as publlo mou, not tho least of whom was “tho Father of hls Country ” Georgei Washington, and tho French Marquis Laffc tho tod «l>endenco of tho United States, both of whom wore Froo-Masons? Speaking of Masonic, lodges giving up their charters at tho popular persecution of nearly thirty years ago ho goes on to say, “immediately thereafter arose one after another;** that Is, of coursol ncK thirty years ago; and, among tho other names <wo forbear to quote all), « Knigfa of Pythias, Croud of Jtevubtic, Ac.” Now, would anybody but an Idiot say this V liolther of these last two bodies are more than nine years old, ond have nothing whatever to do with Masonry, and yet ho adds, “Their avowed purpose (thirty years ago) was to restore Masonry.” May wo not luqulro, Whore and by whom was this lpown7 This Is seen to bo a dcliborately-wrltton falsehood, not to say Ho: and as iSJSSf®* 11 ? Mfwpnry by such moans, It needs no Jtrong for such opponents os Blanchard & Co. to bo oblo to uproot. But wo aro not Its choeon defender; It needs none. What wo nersou aUy object to Is the Insulting epithet of being callcda devil. It puts one In mind of the old saying* th? pot and the kettle colling names.” But ho winds un hh. tlrado by say ng that “ His opinion may bo SrJnlS pus, but honest.” Now, If ho bad any doubt, which is hero implied, Is It proper to blaspheme half a million “ do\Hs»? f Pe ° Ple ° U thlfl continent by culling them Now, sir. It’s not a pleasant thing to have to robuka a man calling hlmsel/a Christian minister, even R Is insane or an Idiot. Wo have, all our life; since an early ago, venerated tho Christian religion s an “now whenever called upon to apeak In a Masonlo lodge we have never failed to state that our religion has a higher claim upon us than Masonry, but that tho latter Is als j worthy of our affection and esteem, for Its benevolent and brotherly objects and alms, which aro equally open to all worthy persons of any religion, owning obedience to tho ono Supremo Being, belbg, os it Is ß unsoctarhm In Its obaroctor. This la its glory, to found tho brotherhood of man over tho universe But tho climax of Blanchard’s absurdity Is In bis article in Tub Chicago Tnmoms of Sunday?

Tho Frenchman Makes tho Largest dun Ever Made In a Mnloh-Gamo In This ■ Country. Tho third and last of tho series of three-ball games ;between Übassy and Boeauugcr was played at tho Globe Theatre, last evening, In tho presence of a much largcrnudlouco than could bo expected, !u vlow of tho counter-attractions of tho Jubilee. It consisted of 300 points, for $250 a stdo, Bosaungor receiving tho odds of a discount. Mr. T. Z. Cowles, editor of tho Western Sporting Ocizcitt-, wao tho referee, and tho umpired wore Mr. Tom Foley for Uhaasy, and Mr. Goorgo Morris for Beosungor. Thoro was no betting at ,■ tho commencement of or Unplug tho game, tho backers ■of either parly not having sufficient confidence In tho skill of their favor ites to wager anything on tho result of, their play, Thomatch was comtnqnccd about 0 o'clock, and:was’ finished at half past 11. Übassy was ‘ successful' lit banking for tho first shot. Tho find string o{ iod was a close thing between tbo players, oven up, Bcssungcr turned It in his twonty-llfth Inning, with a run of 12, bis score standing at ,111, , Uhaasy wont arouhd.tho comer In hla twenty-seventh tuning, making a splendid run of 35, and then freezing. In playing round'tlidta for tho next shot bo was kissed out of a count when the mills wore in a heap. Ills totol score then showed on ly Tho play in (ho first string was not ex traordinary on either side. Bossungor-counted with great rapidity, but played with ,considerable uncer tainty when ho found tbo balls In a favorable position. Tho moat difficult shots wero made by him with ap-' parent case, hut tho simple ones wero missed In a groat many Instances. In his third inning ho made a' pretty run of 18, a good break being loft him. In Ills sixth Inning ho plavod well-again, making 10, hut missing a very easy shot where a count would bavo profiled, him well. Ilia next donblo-flguro run was luOclo in- tho' twenty-fourth Inning, and omouatod to 13, which ho* followed up with 12, missing ogatu on on easy'draw. The runs Intervening between those mentioned obovo wore not particularly noticeable. - Übassy. did nothing worthy of extended mention In hla first 10° points. I|} tiio sixth inning ho mado a fine run of 32, which exhibited nil his styles of play, hut which ended, singularly enough, In a mins of his favorite shot, a draw, and on cany ouo at that. His second hundred was much bettor played, runs of 33,17, 60, 28, and 47 appearing In It, In all of those rims tho most peculiar shots for position wero successfully deal of applause greeted tbo player. It is utterly Impossible to describe bis maneuvers for advantageous leaves. They would not bo understood by the ordinary American player, who has been accustomed to boo tho same kiudo of shots and the same general stylo of ploy In'all tho public matches ho oyer witnessed. Übassy rarely ploys tbo same shot twice alike, A now idoa scorns to utriko him, oud ho tosls Its usefulness at all hazards. This ■i^* 060 ®PP ar ® a t, *9, audience every time ho shoots. When tho balls aro all together, oud tho spec tators have sottlod themselves In their scats ■to sco some nursing, bo will burst tho leave and their hones at tho same lime, and proceed to demonstrate that ar?rßoVo,r? ways In wlUch they can bo collected again. Ho exhibited this stylo of playMn hla second hundred, and was unfortunate enough to miss by. a hair a brcodUi whenever ho did miss. Bcssungop plar cd remarkably well In his second hundred. No player could discount tho runs bo mado, bat. Mko Übassy, he was fated to miss tho easiest shots. Bis scorei shows four double-figure runs, tho highest being 2°. His execution was fully up to tho mark of bis op ponont, but ho did not exhibit that originality of con ception which characterized that player. Bis third sml last hundred was remarkable for nothing but his highest run In tho game, 22. Ho did not showanv signs of nervousness toward tho close, ns ho baa done V?,£ on f} or Barnes, but played steadily to tho end. It la difficult to criticise tho ending of Übaasy'a game. Tho writer is free to confess thot ho doesn’t know enough about billiards to toll tho readers of Tnn Thidune what lhat Frouchman did so that they could under stand It. Ho mado anm of 117, tho largest ever mado In a money game in this country, and how ho raan agod to do It would take a column or so to describe Suffice It to say that ho mado all sorts of shots lu all sorts of ways, ami that ho might have mado a groat many more If ho hadn't slipped up on on nu easy Ho showed tho audience that ho could nurse balls If ho wanted to, and that, unlike other players, ho could knock them around when they wore together, and bring them Into position again in a row shots.

To the Editor of the New York Evening J'oat: In 1008 Clcub. Hhermnn, Auger, Terry, and Ilornoy, With other Oomtnißfllonerfl, were appointed to examine ! Jutoflio causes of our Indian wars. t Thoy preaonted a report which contained theuoronmrltnblo words: “if thodnndS'Of the white men aro. taken, civilization Jußtifloo him In'resisting tho Invader, Civili zation doofl moro than thin, —If brands him as a coward and a slave If ho submit to tho wrong. Kero civilization mado Its contract and guar anteed tho rights of tho weaker party. It did and stand by tho guarantee; Iho treaty was broken, but not by tho savage. If tho savngo resists, civilization, with tho ton commandments in cno'lmnd, nmltho sword In tho other, demands his immediate extermi nation.” Those aro remarkable words. They wore written after long months of strict examination Into tho causes of our then-existing wars.* Tho proof taken was so Uorrrhlo and revolting it was not mode public Speaking of ono mascaoro of Indians by our whlto- volunteers, tho Commlssfoucrs say: 11 It scarcely has a parallel In tho records of In dian barbarity. Fleeing women holding up tbolr bands for mercy wore brutally shotllowu, Infants wero killed and scalped in derision, men were tortured • and mutilated In a manner that would put to shamo tho savogo Ingenuity of Interior Africa.” . Ills a trutnful statement of tho Cannes of Indian 'wars, Tho prophecy of Geu. Sherman hos been ful filled. Tho recent Modoo treachery has filled Iho na tion with sorrow. One of our nobloßt Generals wns cruelly murdered, and many bravo soldiers sloop In namolcßß graves. Tho press and poonlu clamor for extermination, Wo ask for tho cause of tho treachery. Tho Indian has no press reporters to tell hla side of tho story, ami Indian warriors do not mako their wrongs tho subject of telegraphic dcspatchcD. Tho Modocs wore a wild warlike people. They belonged to tho olaes of Indiana who will at any odds avengu tbolr wrongs. Tha de partment admits that tho Modocs wero robbed -by 1U ogouts and removed to a reservation sgalnst tbolr will. Tho administration of Indian affairs lu Oregon has been most shameless. Senator Nesmith, In a report of 1867, says: 11 1 have examined Invoices of purchases made by tho Department in Eastern cldcs whoro tho prices charged wero from 60 (o 100 por cent . above tho market value of good articles Upon an examination of tho goods, X found them worthkos and deficient in quantity. Among them wero steel spades mado of ‘sheet iron;* ‘chopping axes mado of cast iron; best brogaus with paper Holes * blankets made of shoddy and glue, which camo to shreds tho first Urao they wero wot,'” etc., 010. 110 also speaks of useless articles, ns “forty dozen pair of elastics for a tribe whore there was not a single pair of stockings.” This kind of administration usually brings Indian wars. Tho Modocs had a mure bitter memory. They woroluvitodtocomoin audera ting of truce. They nc coptedtbowhlloman'swhllollag, They cumo. Tho day was rdluy. Tho sinews to their bows were wot and useless. A signal was given, uud forty out of forty seven warriors wero hilled. Tho Chief Schonchiu was of tho number. Is It Btraugu that his son was ouo of tho assassins of Qou. Canty aud Dr. Thomas 7 It Is an eternal law for nations oa well as men that “ what soever a man sowoth that shall ho also reap.” Nations who sow treachery reap treachery, and tha Innocent suffer with the guilty. I ask no mercy for murderers, whether rod or whlto. Tho Modocs must bo puulshutl. Dut wo must remember wo have not merely to deal with a haudful of savages. Wo ore dealing with God. Wo cannot mako special pleadings in tho court of IXcavcd. This Is no tlmo to shut our oyes to tho facts. Wo may enr “oxtonnlnalo,” and turn men aside from tho losscuT of tho stern logic of oveuts by our Jeors at “ poor Lo,” who is wreaking his mad von f eauco on tho innocent. But wo ought to remember bat no ono can exterminate but God. Tho gross has over a million of graves of our own race : wo oro to-doy groaning under tlmJmyden of n debt of thousands of millions of dollars expended lu civil war—the fruit of our own sin. Wo can hardly afford to forget tho lesson. Tbo people, who seldom examino facts, cry out 1 against President Grant's peace policy, and tbo press ' lay tbo murder of Ocn. Cauby at bis door. Wo have ' no peace policy. We have never changed our old in , dlan system. Wo are still using a pulley which boa coat us $300,000,000 and made a track of massacre and murder from tbo Atlantic to tbo Pacific. Tbo Presi dent has—all bouor to him for It—tried to amend tbo ’ working of our bad system. Hu has takou tbo nomi nation of agents from politicians who used It os | reward for political service, and ho bus given it to tbo different religious bodies of tbo country. This plan • baa worked well. It bus taken away some of the most glaring evils of tbo . old system. It baa given tbo Indians agents who be lieve In a God and are osbamed to steal. Tbo presi dent bus also appointed a commission of philanthropic Christian gentlemen to watch over tbo Indians, inves tigate their wrongs, examine Indian contracts and try to eradicate tbo worst features of tbo old system. Any religious body which bos on executive committee to care for its financial and missionary operations may have tbo nomination of tbo agent and employes of such agencies as tbo Government commits to their care, and for their conduct this religious body is held responsible. Tbo plan baa been more beneficial than Its most san guine friends could have hoped. It was Inaugurated when wo woro ot war with nearly every tribe west of tbo Mississippi. Hundreds of Indians have become civilized and Christianized. Where six years ago you only beard tbo horrid sounds of tbo acnlp-dauco. you know boar songs of praiao nud the voice of prayer. Iho Episcopal Church has four Indian clergymen nud hundreds of communicants, and other religious bodies have boon equally blessed. Tbo worst evils of tbo old system of Indian contracts have been done away It Is no longer tbo custom to cheat tbo Indiana In the price and tbo delivery. Iliora aro ovlla wlilcli 110 ol Iho lomulnllon of oil our (Mings with lUo Xmllnus, and tdo tliuo lisa como lo look thorn plainly lu tho face. Tho Proaldout nud Secretory of tho Interior uro powerless. Congress alono can change our Indian system, and they never reform anything until tho people demand 11. Wo want tho Indiana’ land ; civilization claims It for

tta necessities j it must and wilt have it. Tho land bc lougs to tho Indian. It In endeared to him an tho homo of bis fathers; bis claim Is ouo wo cannot gainsay. The Supreme Court of tbo United States baa decided that tbo Indian has tbo possessory right to bo so 1. Ho may not transfer It to an alien power, but no title can pass until tbo value of this possessory right has been paid. Ahab may covet and take Naboth’s vineyard, but Buoh transfers have novor boon profit able to the possessor. Wo como now to tbo bargain. Ibo parties are a Christian nation and a heathen people. Moss of our treaties have been shameless frauds. Tbo parlies who woro most interested did not know each other’s wishes. Tbol# beads were on the Interpreter’s shoulders. If the treaty is made, tbcio Is always a loophole for another. Tho tribe la taken to a reservation. The laud is under the core of tbo United Slates. It Is not subject to Territorial or State laws. Tbo old tribal rolutlous which made the chief tbo leader of a clan are broken up. Tho chief’s power for good has boon weakened. No laws are made for the Indian, No Judicial ofilccr resides on tbo res ervation. No one Is appointed to cxocutolaw. There la no other protection to properly, person, or ilfo than tbo good-will of tbo Indians to ouo another. Tbo theory seems to bo that a savage people, emerg ing from heathenism, aro such models of propriety they can got on without government, while white men cannot live without law—society with them would be come chaos. Manhood cannot bo preserved without Individual rights of property. The absence of law fosters savago modes of life. It leaves tbo Industrious helpless. An Indian gives up the war-path; bo has bis hair out; bo builds a bouse; bo tills the laud and plants a crop; a savage insults bis wife, destroys bis crop, or kills bla cow. Ho has no rodresa. lie can full back on bis old savage hatred and kill tbo transgressor, but wo have taught him this is wrong. Tbo Jaw does not regard an Indian os a man. An In dian kills another Indian (It has boppeued again nud again lu Minnesota); no questions are asked. If a foreigner bad killed another foreigner wo would bang him for killing a human being. “Holo-lu-the-Day,” tbo bead chief of tho Oblppowas, was an Amer ican citizen. Ho was murdered in broad day ♦ tbo murderers wore known to hundreds; . but not tbo slightest effort was made to arrest tbo guilty. As tho Government docs not protect tbo Indians, white men have no respect for their rights; so license, robbery, and murder go unpunished. Tho cause which lies back of alt Indian massacre la some story of wrong. A mob bung two Indians at Brolnard 1 for the alleged murder of a white woman, but few re- 1 member that within a stone’s throw of tho alleged 1 scene of that murder nu Indian woman dlod’by ! tho brutal violence of white men. I can recall many instances of such unprovoked murder. 1 t ... Government has pledged to give to each civilized Indian ICO acres of laud, No patents which convey tbo title lu fee simple aro issued. As titles, the certificates granted are useless. They leave tbo Hiloiso that greed and cupidity may clamor for tbo \ Indian’s removal. * i Iho remedy la simple: In every treaty tho just value of tho Indian’s right ought to bo paid; tho Government shou. I hold this mi a sacred trust for its wards, Tho sum will In ovory case bo ample to oaro for him until able to caro for himself, Tho Indian must bo placed under law j these laws must bo plain, ond, at whatever cost, must bo enforced. A Judicial olllcer—a stipendiary magistrate—ought to reside on every reservation, and with such constabu lary force as Is necessary to execute tho law. Inmost cases tbo Indians could bo appointed us such consta bles. But at whatever cost wo must havo law and en force It. Tho friends of tho Indians have always B loaded for this, and they osk swift punishment on Jose who commit crimes, Tho present agents plead for this. For 0 mouths ono of tho host agents in the wmutry bos warned us that an Indian w*p was Imminent because of* tho Inelllelcucy of our system, and that tho lawless oud turbulent were allowed to roam at will, and commit crimes without fear of pun ishment. Tho Indian question will not bo silent. Thoughtful men uro beginning to feel that we must moot It In tho fear of God. If you place (eu white men uud women In a row with an Indian, and toll tho American People wo must kill (he Indian, but wo shall have to mu tho ten of our own race llrst, and U Uj—JO<t). will cost us f.l 00.000, wo shall liwntnm an to the wisdom of the act. It In exactly wlmt wo Imvo done for a score of years. Wo cannot go on. In Canada llioy bavo never bad an Indian war; wo havei seldom nasned a year without our. The secret In In “law.” Tins good are protected, the bad are pun ished, Wo should p.lm at three iliingn: /Vrnf—Wo must tncuk up their wandering, savage linblts by paying them n Just price for their rights, end placing them on reservations which shall be guaran tee;! lo them and lo their children forever.

The banquet last night at tho Central lllnk was a grand affair. A number of excellent speeches were made in response to appropriate sen* umeuta. During tho sessions to-day a largo number of very valuable reports wore made. Tho reading of these papers was followed by discussions on tho subjects to which they referred. The Institute resolv ed that it would not receive reports or papers which had been previously published, or print them in its transactions. Thu Committee on a World's Homeopathy Convention made a report through Dr. Dudley, of Philadelphia. It is tho Intention of tho In stitute to have im International Convention of home oparhic physicians assemble In Philadelphia In 1870. during the centennial celebration, Tho Initiatory steps In this matter were taken three years ago, and It Is determined by tho Institute that this “hull bo a fraud gathering of scientific practitioners of tho lomoopathlo school from all parts of tho world.

This report showed that while tho ratio was slightly in favor of tho old school treatment in a few diseases, yot in a largo majority of them it was largely in favor of homeopathy, and that tho gorernl ratio was largely in favor of tho lattcr-namod method of treatment. The lUßtituto appointed a Committee on Climatology, chosen from physicians from various sections of tho country, for tho purpose of gathering exact Informa tion In reference to tho influence of cQmato upon vari ous diseases, especially consumption. Niagara Falla has been selected as tho next place of meeting, and tho flrat Tuesday in Juno, 1874, as tho time. Thomsit tuto will adjourn to-morrow, after transacting its miscellaneous business.

Tho London GMe. remarking on tho visit of the px-Duko of Modena to tbo Princo of Waloa, at Vienna, ths other day, says : “ This may eectn a vary com monplace announcement. To those, however, who know tbo faots, it la full of liUoreat. Tho (ix-Duko who la also, by tho way, an ArduUiko of Austria and Prince Royal of Hungary ond Bohemia—is at present tbo representative of tho Stuart family, and might claim, by right of birth, to bo King of England. Henrietta, youngest daughter of Charles 1., was born at Exeter, on Juno 15, 2C14. She was educated as a Catholic, in Franco, by her mother. In ICOI, aho be came tho wife of Philip, Duke of Orleans, tho anccs tor of Louis Philippe. A Princess of tho House of Orleans sprung from this union, married a Prince of the Uonao of Savoy ; and a Princess of Savoy— their lineal descendant—became tho wife of Francis IV., Duko of Modena, father of tho present cx-Duko. Thus the latter is directly descended, through tho fe male line, from Charles I. Tho malo lino has long been extinct. Tho gentleman who died some timo ago, and whom tho spoko of os the last of tbo Stuarts, had a strong resemblance to tho family ; P ut his claims to Stuart blood were oltogother fancl fin. The ox-Duko of Modena Is, ond lias long been, tho head of thin ancient house. Thoro arc, probably, still among tho remote Scottish clans descendants of the heroes of '45 who would bo willing to honor him as their sovereign. W'o aro not aware that any heir of tbo Stuarts has acknowledged tho settlement of ICBB Their moat enthusiastic supporters loug ago ceased to dream of its being reversed; looking at tbo subject as a matter of right, some member of the family may have continued to regard tho Sover eigns of tho House of Brunswick as usurpers. The visit of tbo Duko to tho Prince of Wales may bo taken as a sort of acknowledgment that loug possession of tho throne by tho reigning family puls their tltlo to it. even theoretically, beyond question. To those ac quainted with English history, tho sight of tho Princes together might have recalled a long, dark struggle which excited till far In tho last coutnry floreo pas sions, and was tho occasion of ranch shedding of blood. Tho cauao of tho Stuarts is now a forgotten onot but it onco had tbo sympathy of many of tho noblest minds in England, and roused their euthuslaeni os tho cause of order and Justice. Thus utterly may a great political movement exhaust Itself. Will tho cause of (ho Legitimists lu Franco ever die out as com pletely? Tho «ow Springfield Gun for tho Army'* From the Sprinpiicltl (.Ifass.) Jtepubliean, The gun adopted is No. 00 on the list, and is operat ed in all respects like No. 43, the arm Issued for ex perimental trial In tho field, difiering from it ouly la having tho loek-plato of uniform thickness, about ouo half that of No. 48; tho main-spring bolster-spring being replaced by a screw, and in changing the shape of tho hammer and surrounding parts of tho stock so as to promote economy of manufacture uud ease of manipulation. Tho gnu has five motions—locked, opened, loaded, closed, aud fired. It Is opened by half or full cocking tho hammer, ami then pressing ths thumb-ploco of tho cnmratch spring; locked by tho horizontal elongation of tho hinge pin hole in the brcoch-lock, allowing tho block to slldo bodily backward under tho influ ence of tho discharge, until, by tho enlargement of the cam-shaft bole, a bearing in tho lino of tho band la obtained by means of tho interposition of tho earn, which, abutting against tho bottom of its recess in the block, transfers tho recoil to the face of tho brcceh scrow without subjecting tho cam-«hafHtsolf to nuv strain; fired by a front-action side-lock of tho usual pattern, tho firing-pin guard on tho front ploeo pro. venting lu any position of tho breech-block uu unex pected discharge of tho plcco before tho brcoch is so. curely closed. Tho cartridge shell is extracted by an extractor swinging on tbo hiugo-pln and struck upon its center of motion by tho forward end of tho breech block near tho completion of Us movement in opening. Tho ojootmout of the cartridge is niado by accelerat ing tho movement of tho extractor by menus of (ho spiral ojoctor spring which surrounds the stem of tho ojootorupiudlo aud bears against tho bottom of the whole lu tho receiver at ono ond, against tho head of tho splndlo at tho other. When the extractor la re volved by tho opening of tho block, tbo ejector spring is compressed by tho ojoctor spindle, tho point of which testa in a cavity at tho back of tbo extractor, obovo Us oxis of motion. Tho continue* 1 revolution of tho extractor finally brings tho direction of tho ojoctor splndlo below tho axis of motion. As soon as tho "dead centre” Is passed tho sudden release of the ojoctor spring causes tho extractor to rapidly rotate about Us axis, carrying tho empty cartridge’shell against the beveled surface of tho ejector stud, by which It is deflected upward and thrown clear out oi tho gun. A TomiMirniico-Locluro* A man died iu Worcester, Mass., the other day, whose career ought to bo fur young men tbo most ef fectual of temperance lectures. Twelve years ago he was a young lawyer iu Connecticut, of uncommon abilities and brilliant promise. Ho entered tho army, and rose to the rank of Colonel, but ho became ad dicted to drink, and rapidly sank to tho grade of u common drunkard. Whifo intoxicated ono night, iu a low don in this city, ho was “ shunghned " aboard a bark bound for Chinn. Tho vessel was wrecked oif tit, Helena, and he with several others were rescued and taken to Capo Town. Here, while engaged in a debauch, ho was arrested and imprisoned, and after wards hired to a Butch farmer, where ho worked with Hottentots. Escaping, he shipped on a trading vessel through tho Straits of Madagascar, whore ho deserted and lived for some time among the natives of the island. Narrowly escaping murder, he afterward pul to soa in an open boat, was picked up and taken to Capo Tov,ui, and then to Hiugapure. For several yean he wandered about in China and Japan, a poor drunk en vagabond, finally lauded at tian Francisco in n Mats of beggary, and made his waynoross the continent, His friends hoard of him as a bartender in a miserable saloon in Elizabeth, N.
