An Investigation of Territorial Mail Abolition of Several Indian Super- Washington, D. 0., Juno B.—Tbo Post Office Department has concluded to send a special agent to tbo various Territories to Inspect the stago routes prior to lotting mall contracts on tbo Ist of September next. Tbo Department is under tbo impression that tboro is considerable swindling both as to length of roads claimed and tbo frequency with which moils are delivered. It is proposed to stop this sort of thing I f possi ble. It is not boliovod boro that tbo suit of tho Huntingdon estate against tbo Metropolis Pav ing Company will ever oomo to trial. Tholr answer Is duo this week, but ihoro bavo boon intimations wbiob load tbo plaintiffs to oxpeot that tho amonnt claimed will bo paid without tbo intervention of tbo courts, and tbo only anxiety now Booms to bo to keep tbo affairs of this company from bo coming public, so that tbo complicity of Con gressmen In contracts may not bo exposed in tbo newspapers. A strong effort is now being mado to induco tho executors of tbo Huntingdon estate to give up whatever papers they may have In tbeir possession whicu criminate Federal officials and members of Congress. In no quarter does thoro seem to bo any disposition to glvo tho publio tbo benefit of tbo information, which aa a matter of record would convict officials of complicity in corrupt transactions. TUB SALARY-GRAD. There la ft prospect of a warm personal discus sion in the noxt Congress on the subject of iho Bidary-stoal voted at Iho last session. The mom bora who took the money regard the action of those members who refused or returned it as an imputation on their official honor and integrity, ana they do not propose to lot it pass by unno ticed. Congressman Randall, of Pennsylvania, ban prepared a speech which ho will deliver on the first opportunity, defending tho oxtra-pay business and criticising tho conduct of those who refused to accept tho money. Ho will show that all those who wore members of tho Thirty ninth Congress in which tho salaries of Con gressmen woro raised from $3,000 to $5,000, and who were in tho lost Congress, took their back Say In 1860, although they refused it in 1878. andoll alleges that tho bach pay of tho Thirty ninth Congress was camnaignod and engineered by Senator Thurman, who introduced it Into a conference Committee. The whole thing will bo ventilated at the next session. \To the Associated Press. l INDIAN SUPERINTENDENOIEa ADOLIBEED. Under tho law enacted at tho last session of Congress, authorizing the President to appoint five Inspectors of Indian Affairs, and to abolish as many of tho existing Indian Suporintondoncies as bo should doom advisable, the President has, upon tho recommendation of tho Secretary of tbo Interior, issued an order abolishing the Snporintondeuclca of Montana, Oregon, oud Arizona, and tbo Northern Indian Sunorintendoucios which comprises Da kota and part of Nebraska, ana appointing tho following-named persona to bo Indian In spectors for assignment to duty under the law as tho interests of tho service may require: J.

Burning: of Oily Cars, and lumber In Cincinnati •• losn t $170,000 -- Fire* EUowrli«co« Cincinnati, 0., June B.—A fire doing $l7O, 000 damage occurred in tbla city to-day, burning 1,400 barrels of coal-oil, 25 freight care, mostly loaded, a lumber yard with 3.000,000 foot, mostly hard, lumber, and 17 dwellings, most of them small frame cottages. At half-post 12 o'clock, when it broke out, four alarms wore sounded colling out the entire department with re serves. Engines from Covington and Newport. came and aided. The fixe broke out in the yard, of tho Marietta & Cincinnati Bailroad in an open frame storage shod, about 800 foot long, situated on the south side of the road, between Smith and Park streets. Tho shod contained 1,400 barrels of coal oil shipped hero from Parkers burg and stored for dealers in this city. Humors are numerous as to how the fire caught. It is generally believed that a lot of boys playing sot ton firo. A young man crossing tho bridge over tho road on Smith street says bo first saw in the shed . a fiamo not larger than a hat; then saw. it burst suddenly up with several successive explosions, enveloping the entire building. Private watchmen employed by tho railroad arrived on tho spot before tho barrels exploded, and commenced rolling barrels away, when other explosions occurred so rapidly that they with difficulty escaped. A locomotive attempted to draw tho coca from a series of ad joining tracks in tho yard, but was aaahlo to ap proach on account of tho intense boat. Twenty caaa wore shoved by hand from tho track most distant from tho shod. Ton of tho cars loft ex posed to tho fire wore loaded with sulphur, tho remaining fifteen wore freighted with tan bark and lumber. Tho sulphur fumes interfered with fighting tho fire. W. H. Lancaster, of tho Marietta road, was seriously injured by inhaling thorn while trying to save tho oars. Ton of tho oars wore burned to tho ground, and most of them utterly de stroyed, while tho remaining fifteen, with their contents, were badly damaged. This loss of cars and freight falls on the Marietta & Cincinnati Bailroad. Thirty-seven, hundred dollars' worth of marble in blocks in the yard was crumbled to pieces. Bouth of tho shod tho firo spread to tho lumber-yard of E. Boborta & Co., extending on the north Bids of Second street, from Smith street nearly to Port street. This was soon en tirely enveloped in flames. The lumber was piled high and close. Bight across Second street, from tho burning lumber, sixty foot dis tant from it, wore three immense iron receivers of the Goa ‘Works. Tho Gas Company kept too men on tho top of tho tanks, with hose, throw ing water on tho heated irou. Those receivers, on tho side next tho firo, were rod hot, and mom entarily in danger of explosion, in which event it would have boon certain death to the men on top. Tho firco ompanios did oil tho intense heat would permit them. The men at last hod to forsake tho gas-holders, but by this time tho coal-oil had all burned up, and only tho lumber yards and burning dwellings on Second. Park, and South Pearl streets remained to bo quenched. The department soon got control of the firo, and the gas-reservoirs wore oat of dan ger. Tho heat was so intense as to fracture tho stone rims to tho gas lank on Second street. The fire communicated to the fence of tho coal yard of the gas company, which U completely charred. On Second street, near Park street, between Second dud South Pearl, and on South Pearl, from Park street oast to tho lumber yard, tho dwellings wore swept off. There wore eighteen of them, four of which wore two-story bricks, the remainder one aud two-story frames. They wore occupied by about forty families, most of thorn poor, Who wore turned homeless. They succeeded iu saving tho greater part of their portable household effects. A stable, with two horsos, was consumed. The principal losem of tho dwellings wore tho Marietta & Cincinnati Bailroad Company, Will iam Prist, M. E. H. Tudor, Mr. Stewart, Mrs. Qlubbou, and Iloho Gilmore. The losses will foot up about as follows : E. Bupert & Co., lumber yard, SIOO,OOO i Marietta Bailroad in oars and freight, $25,000 ; ooal oil largely owned by two firms, Alexander McDon ald, and Durolohordt, $12,000 t dwelling houses. $25,000} marble and stone, $3,800 \ household BECOMD A CO., 167 BUtd-at., Ouxoaoo, 111, WASHINGTON.

Tbo amount of destruction by tho flro was comparatively small, but in He perilous nature U never bod Its equal. Fortunately It broke out in mid-day during a calm at tho out set, after which a slight south wind turned tbo flames from tbo gas works directly oast of it, where aro located tbo largo depots and several immoneo factories of furniture and other articles containing much wood. Tho immense elevator was scorched, but not flrod, A smart palo from tho wostswonld have loft the lower level of tho city to tbo mercy of tho flames.

Davis sent word to tbo settlors of Tulo .Lake'and tbo Lake River country. Ho desired thorn to comoand identify tbo murderers. Among those who responded to iho call wore Airs. Boddy, andhor daughter, Mrs. Sahicra, two women who were widowed by tbo Modocs. Boddy and Schlora took up tbreo-quar tor sections of land near tbo mouth of Lost River, last August, with thoir families, and settled in tbo* country. On tbo morning of Nov. 20 Oapt. Jackson’s command attacked Jack and bis party on Lost River, and compelled them to retire. Hooka Jim and bis party wore on tbo north side of tbo rivor from Jack’s, but know hls dofcat. Tho men woto murdered by Hooka Jim and bis associates during tbo tore noon on that day, whilo cutting wood, hording fiheep, etc., within a few miles of tbo bouso, and utterly unconscious of dangor. Tbo agout of tbo Yainax reservation bad promised thorn that any offensive movement against tbo Indians should bo mode known to tbo settlors in timo to afford thorn an opportunity to obtain safe refuge. Tbo messenger sent by tbo agout failed to do bis duty, thereby facilitating tbo massacre. The ar rival of Mr. Boddy’s team without a driver, and the blood upon tbo wagon was tbo first intimation of tho terrible trogody. Those poor women, be fore noon, found tho bodies of tbo murdorod men stripped of all their clothing at different points within a fow miles of s tho house. They also mot tbo Modocs, Hooka y:m, Long Jim, Oarly-Hoadod Doctor, Ono-EyiJ Moso, Rock Dave, Humph Jerry, and Mrs. Hooka Jim, who wore implicated in tho crimo, "While the Indi ana wont to tho bouao to find more male victims, tho women escaped, traveled day and uiuht. *n»i auffoiod many hardships, and i cached Hr.

This moruing Hooka Jim and Steamboat Frank, who bad just returned from a scout after throe or four missing Modocs, woro taken to the tent occupied by tbo women. Hooka Jim was identified by Mrs. Boddy as one of tbo Indians concerned in tho massacre in question. About the robbery bo said Long Jim took a long purao containing SBOO, and bo took a short puree Tho womon boro bocamo oxcltod. Thoy lost all control over their footings, and began crying, and started in (or desperate work. Mrs. Soheera drew a pistol and started for Steamboat Frank, and Mrs. Bodily drew a knife and dashed at Hooka Jim. Gen. Davis stopped in a moment and secured both weapons. During tbo struggle tho General rocoivod a slight cut in tho nalm of tho hand and near tho thumb. Hooka and Steamboat stood like statues. Neither spoke or offered to resist. It galls Jack and his comrades to boo Hooka Jim and Frank traveling to and fro at will, ond armed at that. Ho does not understand tbo re sult of taming State's evidence. This after noon ho became greatly oxoltod, and gave vont to bis race in a fiery oration. Ho rose in bis chains with Sconomn, and in a strong and im pressive manner recited bis grievances. Tho purport of what ho said is told by Scarfaco Charley. Ho Is mad, says Charley, to soo that tho white man no eorvo oil alike. While Jack was delivering his peroration, ond bis fellow-captives woro worming m sympathy with him. tho officer of the guard como in and compelled him to de sist. Thoro aro now 131 Modocs under guard. Juno 7.—Qon. Davis proposes to take tho cav alry, light battery of tho Fourth Artillery, and infantry and march to Klamath, to Wamor, to Harvey, ond Walla Walla for tbo purpose of in timidating tbo bad Indians. Preliminary orders for tho movement have boon Issued.

D. 0., Juno B.—Tbo President and Secretary of War have already boon In formed of tho opinion of Attorney-General Williams, that such of the Modocs as are charged with offenses against the recognized laws of war may bo tried and punished by a military com mission. Tbo War Department will, In oo oordanco with this opinion, send instructions to Qon. Davis through Gen. Scofield. There is no doubt that a Commission will bo organized without delay, and tbo trial com mcnood according to tbo regulations of tbo army. Tbo proceedings and findings of a Mili tary Commission, whore tho sentence is death, are transmitted to Washington for tho review nmi approval of tho President, before sentence can be carried into effect. Several weeks must unavoidably pass before tbo punishment of tbo Modocs can take place. Railroad Accident#* Omaha.

Tbo call had boon numerously signed by men of both parties, and considerable interest was manifested by our local politicians as to wbat was its intention,' and what It would result In. At tho hour fixed for the mooting, 11 a. m., a largo representation was present, Including many of k tbo most substantial fanners in tho county.

Speeches wore mode by Gen, Brinkorhoff in their support, and by Messrs. Graham, 800, and Wallace, denouncing in most violent terms what they called tho attempt to turn tho Convention over to tho Liberal Repub licans, in which Qon. Brinkorhoff, the assumed loader and champion of tho movement, . was bandied without gloves. Tho opposition seomod to oomo principally from tho Administration element in tho body, the Democrats apparently enjoying tho fact that the Convention was likely to brook up in a row, and relieve them from any .danger in their local nominations shortly to bo made.

Xho Slanphtcr of Thirty Thousand Rebels* From tho Xexo York I'ribune, Juno 4. 10:18 p. m. red from the Oat of the mystery which has always envelop ed the distant provinces of China comes a frightful story of violence and blood. It Is re lated in a London telegram to the Associated Press that the Imperial Chinese forces, having captured tho City of Tali-fn, Province of Yun nan, fell upon the inhabitants, who are Moham medan letolfl, and put 80,000 of them to death. The Sultan, it is further said, poi soned himself, suicide being preferable to cap tureby the victorious Imperialists. It is hardly accurate, however, to speak of Tali-fu 'as “ tho capital of a Mohammedan State in the Province of Yunnan." The termination of tho name of the city indicates that it is tho capital of one of those districts Into which every Chinese province is subdivided. These subdivis ions correspond to the counties Into' which our States are divided, and are called 44 Fu." Tali, or Tall-fu, is the chief city of one of tho districts, or “ Fu," of the Province of Yunnan. Tho r capital of the Province Is Yunnan-fu, nearly 200 milos southeast of tho city which has just boon devastated by tho Chinese army. The Mohammedan rebellion is ono of tho chronic sores of tho Chinese Empire. It has existed sinco 1855, having swept tho ontiro western and northwestern Imo of prov inces. In 18G1-2 it attained its greatest and most formidable dimensions, ana threatened to overturn tho existing dynasty. Of late years, however, tbo Mohammedans have gravitated to ward Yunnan, a groat province in tho extreme southwestern corner of China, bounded ex teriorly by Siam, Annam, Hannah, and Laos. Ever stnoo the drat years of Mohammed, this province has boon permeated with tho infl uences of tho doctrines of tho Prophet. As long ago as tho time of Marco Polo, that Father of Oriental History found the inhab itants of Corajan, as he called Yunnan, “ chiefly Saracens and Idolaters.” Alter tho rebellion of 1855 bad made sufficient headway against tho Imperial Government, tbo Mohammedans chose a ruler or chief. At last accounts, all of Western Ynnnan was virtually an independ ent Stato, Sultan Suleiman, os ha was called, being tho head of tho Government. The Chi nese Imperial power was too weak or too indo lent to compel tho submission of those rebels or reduce this interior kingdom to subjection. Something like annual tribute was paid to tho tax-gatherers of tho province, and tho local Ohiuoso authorities having satisfied their ropaol ty.tho Eocodera were lot alono. This snddon explosion in 44 Tho Cloudy South," as tho name of tho province aptly signi fies, will attract tho attention of tho civilized world to the interior condition of China, and especially the unknown region whoro this bloody drama has boon enacted. Until Mr. T. T. Cooper, an adventurous English man, endeavored to oxploro a passage across Yunnan into Burmah, a few years ago, we knew scarcely anything of tho country, except what Marco Polo hod written of it in the thirteenth century. In 1280, Tali-fu was tho second city in Carajan, or Yunnan, and a grandson of Kanlai Khan, who rolgnod over that pact of the province or Kingdom, mode hla seat of government at tho city just cow sadly recalled to tho memory of the outside world. What is tho state of affairs in that densely populous region ? What aro tho man ners and oustoma of the peopUhaud what their political theory of governments. Those questions are more impossible of intelligent answer than similar inquiries concerning inhabitants m tho heart of Africa. Tho people aro warlike and unfriendly. Their treasures of gold and pre cious stones aro very groat. In the time of llaaolduddin, a Persian cotomporary of Maroo Folo, the country was called that of tho 41 People of tho Gold Tooth." To this day, iu Western China, an extravagant person is jocosely asked if bis father lo Governor of Yunr nan; just os wo inqulro of our glided youths if they have relatives in tho public ser vice.

A Duel Thirty Years Ago, A California paper reprints the atory of the duel, thirty yoara ago. between John Hampden Pleasants, editor of tuo Richmond Whip, and Thomas Ritchie, Jr., editor of the Richmond Enquirer* The challenge from Ploaaants to Ritoliio was one of the most extraordinary over sent: “I will bo on the Manchester aide of tho James River, near the factory between the river and canal, to-morrow morning at 6 o’cloclc, armed with rifle, pistol, and sword. Wo will advance and fire on each other till one or tho other falls.'* This was tho snbaianco of Mr. Pleasants’ chal lenge. Mr. Ritchie objected to it for va rious reasons, among which wore: “Because it gives tho challenging party ’ tho choice of time, place, and weapons, a right invariably ac corded by tho * code’ to tho challenged; bo cause its terms are savage, sanguinary, and ro voltlug to tho tastes of civilized society. Not withstanding those objections, I will bo at the Slaco at the time named, armed in tho manner escribed, and will defend myself from any at tack mode on mo.” ' Wlitfn' tho duel came off. Pleasants was mortally wounded, hat returned Ritchie’s Are and continued to advance on him, and, when within striking distance, drew hi* sword, giving Ritchie a severe cut on thonp, which was all tho wound tho latter received. Pleasants lingered only a few days, and Ritchlo ended hla life by remorseful dissipation. Weekly Hevlcw of the' Albany TClvo Stock market. Special Dispatch to The Chicago TWftufle. Albany, N.
