The Deed Supposed to Be the Work of Some Oregon Volunteers, Capt. Jack and Others to Be Tried [iy Military Commission. Ban Francisco, Judo 0. —Dispatches from Doylo’s camp, dated yesterday, relate the par ticulars of tho atrocious massacre of some Mo doc prisoners, supposed to have boon done by some Oregon volunteers. . On Saturday morn ing Jatnoß Fairchild and . about a dozen other men loft Fairchild's rancho, Cottonwood Creek,' ■with seventeen Modoo captives, women and children, including Bhacknnsty Jim, Bogus Charley, Tehee Jock, Pony, and Liltlo John. The Indians wore In a wagon drawn by four mules. At tho crossing of Lost Blvor tho par ty encountered tho : Oregon volunteers, under command of Capt. Hisor. The soldiers gathered about tho wagon and questioned Fairchild, who told them that the Modocs wore all Hot Crooks, except Little John, and that there were no charges against them. Fairchild under took to push on to Boyles'camp, and .the volun-' .toors retired to, tho camp near Crawley’s. On the road ho noticed two men ahead, riding to Hooky Point, as if to intercept him. When tho team approached, one presented a needle-gun at Fairchild, saying, " Got down, you old white headed scoundrel.” “By what authority ?” saidFairchild, “By mine. lam going to kill tho Indians and you too,” was tho reply. Their loader caught hold of tho mules, unhitched and out tho harness. Fairchild, clinging to the lines, leaped to the ground. Tho poor wretches implored for' mercy, and boggod Fairchild to save thorn. Tho warriors wore unarmed, and know that resistance was usoloss. They woro tho coolest in tho party, though facing inevitable death, but tho womon and children shrieked, groaned, and wept pite ously. Fairchild hod nothing but a small pistol. Six inches from his ear was tho muzzlo of a neodio-gun. Ho says tho tears came to his oyos os bo mingled his entreaties with those of tho Modocs, in the hope that the massaoro might bo avoided. “Ohl it was a terrible econo; I never shall forgot it. I shudder whoa I think, of what I saw and hoard. Tho tearful voices of those women and children still ring in my oars, but the cowardly hounds wero not to bo baulked." A shot, and Littlo John lay doad In tho bod of tho wogon, with a ballot in his brain. The mules dashed away with Fair child and tangled him in tho linos. Fivo moro shots woro flred in rapid succession. Tohoo Jack, Pony, and Mooch, and the remaining war riors, woro doad. Littlo John’s squaw hod a frightful wound in tho shoulder. Away ahead in tho road, in tho direction of Boyle’s comp, was a cloud of dust indicating tho approach of a team. Tho murdorors espied tho dust, and in a moment woro riding rapidly away. Borgoant Murphy, Battory Q, Fourth Artillery, with ton men and teamsters, camo by team. Tho Sor goant too ohnrgo of affairs and remained with his mon on tho ground. Fairchild and tho team ster, and tho wounded squaw and bor two chil dren camo at 2 o’clock this morning. When Fairchild roachod Oon. Davis’ headquar ters, ho related his story. Teams, with escort, wore at once sent out after tho prisoners, dead and alive. No stops woro takon for tho appre hension of tho felons who performed tho bloody work. It is generally supposed that tho Oregon volunteers arc tho guilty portico. Fairohiid is of that opinion himself. Tho warriors killed woro not charged with murder. Those who know them best say they have only participated iu open fight. Every one hero condemns the affair as atrocious and with out excuse. There is no doubt but the murders wore carried out upon a carefully arranged plan, as Fairchild noticed tho horsemen on the road ahead and behind him when tho shots woro llred. Hod John Fairchild, instead of James, boon present, another murder might havo boon added to tho list, as tho Oregonians are bitter in tholr hatred to John, the old man, and other Califor nians. Tho Warm Springe have only a few weeks longer to servo. Bergfc. Clinton la fast failing. Coyle's Camp, Juno B—3 p. m.—An interview between Qon. Davis, Cant. Jock, and Sohonchiu has just terminated. The Modoo Chief says ho was incited to his cruel warfare by Allen David, the Chief of the Klamaths. Ho also denied having killed Con. Canby, and laid the blame on his boys. Bohonohln told tbo same story. San Fuanoisco, Juno 0. —The nows of the massacre of the Modoo captives is received hero with universal surprise and indignation. The atrocity is loudly denounced by every one. E. Steele, of Yreka, started for the front to day, to bo present at the closing scones of the Modoo war. The Hon. J. E. Luttrol accompanied him. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune, New Youk, Juno 0. —A Washington special says that on investigation will bo made at once into Col. Oillem's conduct of tho campaign against tho Modoo Indians. Charges hayo ooen laid before tho War Department narrating that the command of Mai. Thomas wont out early in the morning, and though tho sound of tho uaU tic was distinctly hoard, tbo commanding officer sent no relief until 4 o'clock in tho afternoon, but was lounging all day In his tout. On ac count of this neglect a largo number of officers and men wore killed and wound ed. Dr.. Dewitt, Assist&ut Burgeon United States Army, specifically charges Oillom with neglect for leaving tho wounded on tho field for thirty-six hours before orders wore given to bring them In for treatment, and that Liout. Harris died In consequence of this negligence. The fooling among army officers Is very intense against Qiflom. They allege that ho is notorious ly incapable, and demand his trial by court martial. Washington, June 'O.—Gon. Schofield baa boon Instructed by to appoint a Military Commission to try tbo Modoo prisoners. The Rod Gloud Indians. Washington, June 0. —Tbo report to tbe Com missioner of Indian Affaire, from Special Com missioner Kollino. at the Bod Cloud Agency, says that the Indians tbero are more friendly than bo bad been led to believe, and that bo hod an informal couferonoo with Blue Horae, High Wolf, Blow Bull, and Bod Loaf, who manifested a very friendly disposition, and whoso Influence has been good and is Increasing. Tbo Special Commissioner cannot yot dotormino in regard to tbo expediency of stationing troops at tbo Agonoy, but it may bo necessary to order a mounted company to patrol the other side of tbo river, as much to prevent whisky-trading as to ■ stop stock-stealing. Tlie American tSchooHiouvoat Vienna. Tbo Now York Tribune contains a letter sign ed by Mr. W. J. Stillman, In which he makes some assertions concerning tbe American eohool bouao business at tbo Vienna Exhibition, which, from tho character of tbo writer and in tbe ab sence of any ofllcial report from the Department of State concerning tbo charges which led to tbo removal of Gen. Van Buron, merit more than casual attention. Mr. Stillman, in offeot, says that Mr. Pbilbrlok, a prominent citizen of Boston, and a man thor oughly acquainted with tbo educational systems of this country, offered to construct a school building and prepare it for shipment to Austria for tbo sum of $2,600, To this offer Gen. Van Buron replied that tho sum of money asked was too groat, and that he could have it built in Vienna at a lower cost. A 001. Bridges, who is ' said to bo a practical builder, was thou hired by Gou. Van Buron to go* to Vienna and build tbo uohool-houso, tbo contract simply being that the coat should not exceed $6,000. or nearly doublo tbe amount of money for which Mr. Bhilbriok offered to do tbo work. Tho building was al most finished on the 16th of May. and looks, ac cording to Mr. Stillman, “as much like a second* CHICAGO, TUESDAY, JUNE 10, 1873. class Now England barn ” as like any known school-house. ■ It appears, therefore, that the United States are making os lino a show at Vienna architectur ally as morally, and in both respects our citizens are represented without regard to expense.

Pa cific Mail and Chios -advanced- about 1 per cent, and tho remainder of the list showed a slight Improvement over the closing figures of Satur day.

Tho Faciflo' Mall report was mfloh dis cussed to-day. At - first the speculators wore disposed to look upon it as more favorable than previously expect ed, but this fooling wore away afterwards. Tho decline In Western Union is attributed to a recent purchase with 16,000 shares of a re served stock at par of interest hold by tho rival Atlautio ib Pacino Telegraph lino, the Atlantic & Faciflo people doubtless marketing this stock at once. The break'in Book Island can not really bo accounted for in view of tho re cent favorable statement of the Company.

FOREIGN. Stormy Scenes in the Spanish •Assembly. The Margall Ministry Repudiated by tli Cortes, and Figuoras Called Upon to Resume. Proclamation of a Spanish Federal Republic. Our Relations with Mexico—Annexation i Rumors. SPAIN. Madrid, Juno o.—Shortly after tho passage of tho resolution definitely proclaiming a Federal Republic, yesterday, tho Cortes took a recess until evening, when Sonar Pi y Margall propos ed the - following now Ministry, which' was ac cepted by tho Cortes In secret session, later: President of tho Council and Minister of tho Inte rior, Bonor Pi y Margall; Minister of State, Sonor Corverd; of Justice, J. Prodioal; of War, Esto vanzj’of Colonies, Sorni; of Finance, Corva f»al; of Marino, Oroiro; of Public Works, Pa anca. Madrid, Juno o— Evening.—TUo session of tbo Cortes,last night, was one of the stormiest on record. Owing to the confusion which pre vailed in the Chamber, the closing of the doors a portion of the time, by which the reporters wore excluded, and the late hour of aajoura mont, the morning papers wore unable to obtain complete or correct reports of the proceedings, and many false* rumors In consequence obtained currency. The state ment, among others, that the Ministry proposed by Honor I*l y Margall was approved is Incorrect. The House finally rejected his Ministry, and colled on Senor Fignoraa to re sume the control of the Government with his old Cabinet. The following is an accurate re sume of the sitting: The Cortes, after passing a resolution pro claiming the Republic, adjourned until evening for tbo purpose of completing the formation of a now Ministry. At 7 p. in. the House reassembled, and Senor Figuoras opened tbo debate. Ho advised the Republicans to bo united, and warned them that divisions in their ranks would prove fatal to the cause they hold dear. The question then camo up whether the Min isters proposed by Honor Pi y Margall should bo voted on en bloc or separately. An excited discussion followed, which was accompanied with frequent scones of confusion. A motion was made to go into secret session. Honor Castolar protested. The Cortes, ho said, owed it to the country that their proceedings should bo public. Honor Pi y Margall finally announced that, in view of the sad scones of disorder, which ho could only consider as an evidence of distrust, ho would withdraw his list of Ministers. A groat uproar followed, and could only bo silenced by Honor Fignoraa, who rose to movo that the Min isters bo directly chosen by the Cortes. Tho motion for a secret sitting was then renewed and adopted, and at midnight the galleries wore cleared and tho reporters excluded. Around tho palaco.tho streets .woro filled with an excited throng, and within tho "chamber tho greatest agitation prevailed. It was rumored at one time -that aa*rmcd-ctowd.had entered the palace and threatened to break, into tho hall. Moreover, a fightphotwoon military and people in the streets was momentarily expected. Gaatelar and Fignoraa succeeded In restoring calm in tho chamber, and exerted themselves to good effect in restraining tho populace outsider .There being no prospect of'au agreement of tho Deputies au to the composition of tho now Min istry, Figuoras, Castolar, and Margall woro suc cessively called upon to form one, but they either declined or failed in tho task after repeated con sultations. Tho whole Cortca finally appealed to Honor Figuoras to remain in power with tho old Cabinet, and ho at last consented. At 4 a. m. the doors woro thrown open and tho galleries were immediately filled. The Cortes proceeded to adopt a vote of confidence in tho Figuoras Ministry, and adjourned. The proclamation of tho Federal Republic was celebrated lost night, at Barcelona, with illumi nations and general rejoicings. . Capt.-Qon. Velarde has retired to Tortosa with the troops which remained faithful. GREAT BRITAIN, London, Juno 9. —Tho Alexandra Palace, near this city, was destroyed by flro to-day. It is re ported that soven lives were lost. London, Juno o—Evening.—Tho total loss by tbo burning of tbo Alexandra Palace is estimated at $3,000,000; insurance, $600,000. Tho firo was caused by tbo carelessness of some workmen, who wore repairing tho zlno roof. No ono was killed, as reported, but several woro injiuod. Tho supply of water was scarce, hence the ra pidity with which tho fire spread. Within half an Lour from tho time tho alarm was given tho entire structure was envel oped in flames, and, ono by ono, tho groat domes by which it was surmounted fell in. The largo organ was destroyed, but somo valua ble pictures and otbor works of art wore saved. In tho Houso of Lords to-day Earl Russell in troduced a bill for tho bettor government of Ireland, which abolishes tho office of Lord Lion tenant; and provides that tho voice of eight jurors out of twolvo will suffice for a verdict. The objoct of tho measure is to restrict tho power of tho priesthood and securo tho oonvio tion of criminals. A dispatch from Dublin says that a groat flro is raging in a timber-yard in that city. Tho crowd, whoso objoct is to plunder, wore inter fering with tho flromoa and stoned them, and a detachment of police were ordered out to pre serve order. Tho latter charged on tho mob, wounding many. Tho Mayor of tho city was hit by ono of tho stones. Intense excitement pre vails in tho viuciuity, and tbo econo during tho obargo of tho troops was fearful. Property to tho value of SIOO,OOO has already been de stroyed. ITALY. Bomb, Juno o.—Tho funeral of Signor Batazzi took placo yesterday, and was attended by a K'. crowd of people. Many persons, to show respect for tho deceased statesman, dis played black dags from their residences. MEXICO. Sx. Louis, Juno o.—Dr. D. 11. Williams, who has resided In tho State of Ooahuiia, Mexico, for two years past, has reached hero and gives .some account of affairs in that country, 110 confirms tho capture of Oon. Losado, tho rohol ohiof, and states that it was believed that ho was immediately shot. In relation to Don. Mackenzie's pursuit and attack on tho Kiokapoo Indians, on Mexican soil, Dr. Williams is of tho opinion that thoro will bo no sorious complaint mado on tho part of tho Mexican authorities, as tbo latter havo long folt tho necessity of somo mutual arrangement between tho two countries by which Indian marauders upon cither side can bo followed across the river and punished by tho Mexicans, if tho outrage is committed upon their soil, as well by tho Ameri cans, as in the Kickapoo affair. Tho Doctor ap prehends that tho Mexicans will use tho latter as a precedent, and pursue fugitives on this Bide of tho Bio Grande. They will bo sure to avail themselves of the example sot by tho Americans, if not disavowed. This may eventually load to trouble, aud plunge tho frontier into a war. Such a result would, however, bo hailed by many as desirable, as it would lead to tho oarviug out of another fat slico from tho " slok man " on our Southern border. Thero are, however, efforts being made by some of tho loading parties on the Mexican side of the Bio, which may load to a negotiation for tho annexation of moro Mexican territory, in order to strengthen tho boundary-lino, ami by which Mexico will bo enabled to pay her debts. Tho territory cov eted for this purpose embraces tho State of Nuevo Loon, Ooahuiia, Chihuahua, tho north end of Durango, Sonora, and lower Californio, known os ■ tho Mexican frontier States.

In this way tho Bccrotary thinks tho people will bo ablo to judgo for themselves as to whether tho orders of tho Department wore obeyed by those In command of tho expedition. Tho evidence of Capt.

No deaths aro known to have occurred from those maladies this season, and prominout physicians aro of tho opinion that they aro caused mainly by sudden chongea of temperature.

TUK POLARIS EXAMINATION, Notwithstanding tho soorocy with which the Secretary of tho Navy is continuing his exam ination of tho Polaris survivors, tho Daily Chronicle says : "It has leaked out that Oapt. Buddington was tho main cause of tbo failure of the expedition, and with him rests tho responsi bility of having jeopardized tho livos of the Tyson-Moyors party and eight others. Shortly after the death of Capt. Hall, when all tho dis cipline of tho ship oocamo lax, and oaoh ap {)oared to work ’on bis own hook,’ ho became ntoxicated, and, with m pistol in his band, drove tho floo-of-ico party from tho ship, giving thorn a quantity of provisions, and then de liberately dosorted them. This story is entirely different from tho ono recently publish ed, that tho separation of tho Polaris from tho ico was accidental instead of boing with pre meditation.” Tho official statomout which is promised is based on tho testimony, and will give the facts in tho case. Tho examination continues, and will probably bo ended to-dny. Tbo Polaris investigation is now conducted in the largo boat-houso south of tbo Admiral's office with closed doors.
