PVjclps was yesterday reappoint etl by the President postmaster at Cincinnati. Gen. SnKitVAS has received nothing yet in relation to the military movements at the scene of the Modoc troubles. The President. Mrs. Grant, Miss Nellie Grant and Gen. Babcock leave here this eve ning for St. Louis, to be absent from the city about three weeks. The Louisiana Trouble* The Attorney General has received no information whatever in regard to the troubles between the whites and blacks in Colfax, Louisiana. He Is of the opinion tuat the matter has been exaggerated. President Grant, accompanied by Sur geon General Karnes, gave a sitting yesterday to L ike lor a portrait. While in the studio the President examined the picture of Rawlins on Uike's ea?el, with much interest, and pro nounced it an admirable likeness. Person At?We see by the London Xewt that Pay Director Cunningham of the United States Navy, was presented to her Majesty by the United States Envoy, at the Queen's Drawing Room held at Buckingham Palace on the 1st inst. ????Ex-Senator Frank Biair, who is still leeble has gone to Clifton Springs, New Y ork. TheSovthern Claims Commission yester day heard the cases of Wm. R. Snow, Thomas M. Smith, and J. C. WiMbn, joint owners of Clover Hill farm, in Prince William county, near NokrsvHle. Va., amounting to *11,-yj, and Dr. I.. C. Osmnn, Nokesville, Prince William couuty, amounting to 94,900. Appointments?The President has ap pointed H. C. Alluian United States attorney for the district of Colorado territory, and Thos. P. Ochletree United States marshal for the eastern district of Texas; Joseph J. Henderson to be consul at Anioy, China; David F. Wil liams to be collector of internal revenue for the 15th district of Pennsvlvani i; Na'haniel Ship man to be U. S. judge for Connecticut. The Gotscnmlnt Claims Aoainst thk New York Ckntkal IUilroau Com pan v. Commissioner Douglass this morning received the following telegram from Collector Bailey and District Attorney Crowley, at Albany: '?The locomotives of the New York Centr tl railroad company, replevied on Saturday bv the sheriff, were this day returned to the'eo! lector. The sain will take place on April 2AI. Necessary papers will be hied to-morrow, re moving suit Horn state court to the U. S. circu t court." The Mopoc War.?A m<l>tary*otticer of high rank said yesterday that he thought popular expectation in regard to the speedy annihila tion of the Modocs would of necessity be dis ap|?ointed, and that he would not be surprised if it takes several weeks to make a finish of them. He says that the cry of '-On to the lava beds" reminds him of the crv of "On to Rich mond," raised at the beginning of the late civil war. He says the lava beds are almost impreg nable. and that it would be the height of ratli nes* and folly to send men into them to be shot down by the savages lurking iu th'; caves and fissures. He belie ves Gen. Gillem is no*v vig orously besieging tl.e enemy,and that it isquite possible that lie will semi no dispatchcs to army headquarters until he has accomplished some thing decisive. The Keliey-Oakes Ames C. M. Dividend. Agreeably to the request of .Judge W. D. Kel ley, Gen. Spinner, United States Treasurer, has covered into the treasury the *300 which Oakes Ames handed over to Judge Poland, chairman of the House credit mobilier commit tee. a? a dividend on the credit mobilier stock which he (Ames) claimed belonged to Mr. Kel ley. Gen. Spinner held this ?300 until vested day, in the hope of getting back the^l/WO iu bonds of the credit mobilier, which Judge Po land turned over to him at Mr. Kelley's request and which he sent to Ames, asking that he so endorse the bonds that tliev could be sold and the proceeds covered into tin? treasurv, as Mr Kelfey suggested. He hoi>ed that Ames would do this, but as the latter remains silent, he con cluded to cover in the #aoo dividend, without waiting any longer for the tardy Oakes. W<?men's Rights Umuerthe Fourteenth Amendment?The case of Myra Bradwell, plaintiff in error vs. the state of Illinois, hag been decided in favor of defendant by the I nited States Supreme Court, the ChieT Jus. tice alone dissenting. Mrs. Bradwell, who is the editor of a Chicago law journal, applied for permission to practice law iu the supreme court of Illinois, submitting the requisite certificate as to character and qualification. The applica tion *vas denied on the ground that a woman is not entitled to admission. The applicant ap pealed to the Supreme Court of the United States, claiming that she is a citizen of the I nited States, and, therefore, is entitled to the privilege of practising law in the state of Illinois, under the provisions of the fourteenth amendment. The United States Supreme Caurt affirm the judgment of the Illinois supreme court. Mr. Justice Miller delivered the opinion of the court. Justices Bradley, Swavne. and Field concurred in the judgment, but not in the opinion. A Credit a tile Piece op Work by Female Experts?Miss Patterson, of the United States Treasurer's office, with two female as sistants, has been at work evA-y bright day for two weeks past in overhauling, for the purpose of identification, the packages of bank notes and securities which were so badly burned bv Anderson, the Insane cashier of Lambertsou's bankt at Franklin, Peunsylrauia, about a month since. Many of these papers were almost wholly destroved; in fact, in some instances bills and other pai?ers were completely con sumed, nothing remaining but small portions of the ashy tabric, which a breath of air would have broken into minute particles. Notwith standing this, so delicatelv and carefully have these vague vestiges of what was once moncv been manipulated by the experts that almost all of the notes and securities have been identi lied, and those issued by the government will be redeemed bv Uncle Sam. The railroad and other corporation bonds will doubtless be re deemed by the companies issuing them. Ez Kepresentative Giltillan, son-in-law of Mr. I.ambertson, the president of the bank, and who has beeniu Washington for several weeks watching the process of identification, is greatlv pleased with the result, and speaks in hl/fi terms of the skill of Gen. Spinner's experts. Something About the Sew Postal Card*. On and after the 1st proximo the common query, "Have you a i>ostage stamp about you?" will be changed to, "Have you a postal card about you?" Evervbodv is on the qui vice to secure some of the first' cards Issued, and one gentleman writes to the Post Office department saving that he would like as many as 100,000 of the S.Oou^no instalment to be issued on the first of May. Requisitions from postmasters all OT6r the country have been jouring Into the Post office department for weeks, the aggregate of which exceed the number of cards which will be ready on the first proximo. In filling these orders the target cities will take the precedence, and out of the 3,000,000 New York city will prob ably receive alout 1,000,000. No requisitions for leas than 500 (five dollar* worth) will be filled, and all orders most be tor that amount or Its multiple. And hare we mar give our cit izens the assurance that Washington will not be behind hand In securing a supply of the new cards, which will be for sale at the of the post office as early as any other elty in the United 8tatas. The eards can be carried In aa envelope of the ordinary sis*, and one of the latter will eonrrntentiy incteee twenty-five cards. Aa many persons desire to send some of the first cards to distant friends. It may be well to state tor their benefit that the post office authorities an of the opinion that they can be transmitted safer by sealing them in envelopes and paying letter postage on them, than ae printed matter. It Is considered doubtful whether the cariosity of the average country iirtmXlt could with stand the temptation of "taking .last ?m" of the new cards when they ire enveloped similar to minted Blatter. They may, however, he seat in that way, and postage paid asoa ordinary printed matter, ila, one cent tor every two All reqnMtlons of jieatmrntosn will bf tiled Item Springfield, Mamachasetl?, where the postal-card agency is established, mad where the cards are manufactured. After May 1, It is expected that the aaMufectory will he able to make them fast enough to fill al> requisitions as they are received. The question was raised yesterday at to whether misdirected or uncalled-for cards shall be returned to the dead-letter office, the name a- ordinary letters, and the opinion was gener ally expressed they will not, but that such cards will be treated as printed matter, i collected and sold for waste paper, or destroyed. 8honld they be returned to the dead-lettsr ofti ce they would hare to be enclosed in envelopes bearing three-cent stamps, and when returned to the writers three cents more postage would be necessary. The cost of manufacturing these three-cent stamps and the envelopes would, therefore, be a total loss to the government. For this reason the cards will not probably be returned to the dead-letter office. ' The Charity Ball. As was predicted by those cognisant of the arrangements being made, the Charity Ball last evening for the benefit of the Children's Ho*, pital was one of the most elegaut and delightful af airs of tlie year, even taking into accouut the many brilliant entertainment* of the ante lcnten season, although the attendance was not as large as was deserved, either by th<i pur|x??e for which the ball was given or the character of the ball Itself. What the assemblage lacked in ?l?iautity, however, was amply made up in uital ity; and if tho affair did not partake of the nature of a crush, it was all the more enjoyable on that account to those who participated, and particularly to the dancers. Not that the room was not resj*MJtably tilled, by any means. It was quite that, anti by the very beat peop'.e in Washington, both in "official and private life. Indeed, it was much more like an Hegant pri vate party of selected guests than the ordinary type of public ball. The decorations were elaborate and beau tiful, and reflected the holiest credit on those having them in charge. The four essentia! requisites to success on such occasions?viz: flowers, flags, birds, and music,?were provided in the richest profu sion. The supper, too. was all that could be desired. Indeed, everything was done that could be done to gratify and satisfy tins guests of the exening, and where that is the ca?e it I- a work of supererogation to enter into details. As suggested above, the attendance of per sons nottd In society was very large, and the display of rich and beautiful toilet- was un usually tine. Among those present were the Prvident and Sliss Grant; Attorney General Williams, and Secretary Richardson and daughter; General Hunter and Mrs. General Stewart; General and Mrs. \f.trey; General and Mrs. Kicketts; ex Mayor Walla'rh and neiec: Mrs. Admiral Dahlgren, Mrs. l?r. Magrudcr, and Mrs. Dr. Brown; .Judge and Mrs. Paschal; General and Mrs. Townsend; Mr. and Mrs. S. V. Niles; Mr. and Mrs. F. II. MetJuire; Mr. and Mrs. S. H. Kautfmann; l)rs. Johnston, Tyler, Liebermann, Bitsey, and Drinkard; Mr. M. W. Gait. Mr. J. C. McGuire, Mr. W. C. BfStor, Mr. Lewis J. l?avis, and Mr. Franck Taylor; Mr. and Mr* W. B. Webb: Mr. and Mrs. I). C. Cos; Mr. and Mrs. I?r. Wads worth; Mr. A. S. Solomons and daughters; Cel. and Mrs. Aud< n reid; Misses Frellnghuyscn, B.irnes. Ray, (iranger. Fletcher, Porter. Cox, Fracker, Brool>?, Demo rest, Alexander, and Gallagher; L'apt. Burritt, Mr. Franklin Philp, Mr. H. C ?swain, and Mr. dam?*s R. Voung; Mr. and Mrs. \V P. WyvlU; Mr. and Mrs. ,F. W. Boteler; Mr. mid Mrs. .lotejih Macl'arlan I; Mr. and Mrs. Tl oiuas Wilson, and many others, ineluding a 'ar^e number of secretaries and attaches of the ft reign legations. The ball closed about three o'clock, and ali present were so delighted with the evening as to cause them to look forward with pleasant an ticipations to its successor ne\t year, and to in wardly Iesolve to not only attend'it themselves but also to persuade their friends to be there as well. So let it be ! Seriovs Strike Riot in Indiana? War Bel I'een Whiff Coal Mine Strikes and Colored Coal Mine A'an-Striker* A serious riot at Knightstown, Ind., l?etween the coal mine strik< rs and the colored miners lately imported from Virginia was in progress yesterday, and nearly the whole town was engaged in the inelep. An associated press dispatch from In dianapolis dated last night says: "The negroes are now at tlieir boarding-house well armed and well guarded bv local police. The crowd is surrounding the house, ami throwing stones and other missiles. A company of colored miners from Brazil and vicinity cauie to the aid of the colored miners. M any shots w?*re tired during the melee. Governor'Hendricks has b?en ap plied to for troops, and it is expected the Inimet Guards and a body of jiolice from this city will leave for Knightstown a!.out 2 a in. and arrive there about 5 a. m. fftae indications are tliat there will be bloody wSrk before the\ arrive. One of the guards over the negroes has been injured, it is not known-how seriously. The town is full of rumors. The women are most furious and are leading the rioters. Pennsylvania Coal Trade?Coal produc tion was a little slack last week, and in the Schuylkill region the surplus of water in the mines continues to check operations. The trade is not as active as it should be in view of the demand that It is well ascertained must continue through the year. Besides, the com bination being strong, will not permit rates and proes to fall below pa ving points. Those best informed are quite sure there will not be lower prlccs of coal tills scamn. Holding off will do no gcod iu bringing down prices, and those who hope it will be mistaken, as rates arc agreed upon already bv the parties in interest. There is to be no surplus coal on the market.?Pitila. Ledger. Kc-kli'x Marauders Worsted.?Accounts from Kdgeficld give the following of a ku-klux raid:?One night last week a party of Georgians, thieeor four in number, visited the plantation of Mr. Frank Sharpton. living in the Dark Corner, iu search of certain negro laborers whe

had left them. Not finding the negroes for whom they sought, they turned in aud whipped all the blacks on Mr." Sharp ton's place, and tipon leaving told them they would return 011 Tuesday nijtht. This they"did?the party in creased'by one or two?anil found the negroe armed and ready for the frav. The latter fired promptly, killing a man named Fobb and se riously weundiug another of the same name. About thirty shots were tired by both parties. The Great Storm in the West?The storm on the line of the Union Pacific railroad proves the most violent of the season. It bagau two days ago, and continued yesterday with un abated fury. There is no means of "communi cating with' San Francisco, or of ascertaining anything further about the army movements against the Modocs. The wires are loaded with sleet. The storm Is from the north, and mostly between North Platte aud Trcmont. At Grand island and vicinity, where it seems to center, no trains are moving at present. No one can face the storm. .

Crvutut, fw-' . . l>ear Sir?Your letter of this date, suggesting some utterance from me, at the present mo ment, as to the plan, purpose, and scope or the Indi.ui policy of the department, which has i*>pu!arly and proi^erly become known as the ? peace policy'' ii we. It ought not to be necessary?and so tar as the purposes of the internment are concerned it is not?to enter u I -on trcsli ilticldation of wiiat is ui"ant by this nolicy. But as the public mind is sought to be contused, if not inflamed, by the criticisms and misrepresentations to which you allude, *-? to the real purjxtscs animating the government toward the Indian tribes, 1 veritnre to present briefly as I may, and as distinctly as possible, an answer to your inquiries. J irtt. Tlie peace policy proposes to place the Indians ujioii reservations a? rapidly as possible, where they can be provided for in such manner as the dictates ot huiuanity and O'uristUTi civili zation require. Being thus placed upon p-?er various, they will be removed from such con tiguity to our fromn-r settlement-* as ot tier wise will lead, necessarily, to frequent outrages, w rongs. and disturbance of the public peace. On these reservations tboy caft l?e taught a fast as possible the art* of agriculture and such r ureuite as are incident to dvilix.tUuii. i hrougi' the aid ot tile Christi.<u organisations ot the country now engaged in this work, acting in harmonv with the lederal government, their lnt? llectual, moral and religious culture cim be prosecuted; and thur it is hoped that hiui uiitj and kindness may take the place of barbarity ai.d cruelty. If a majority of the people ot the United States prefer extermination to the course here indicated, and desire to s-e al* th. horrors and bloodshed and loss ot life, aiu n:? both whites aud Indians, incident to the pjlic> ot externiiuatioli, then it Is well enough to de nounce, in vague and general, if not unmcau ina terms, the "Quaker policy." hcrnd. Win never it shall be tonnd that any trll?e or band of Indians persistently refuse to go tpon a reservation, and detcimine to con tinue their nomudic habits, accompanied with depredations and outrages upon our frontier settlements, then it is the jioliey of the Presi dent to treat such band or tribe with all weeded severity, to punish them tor their outrages ac cording to their merit*, and thus to teach them that it lsbetter to follow the advice of the gov ernment, and go upon reservations and become civilized, rather than to continue their native habits and practices. The recent conduct ol the Modocs will tumish to the government au example tor the treatment of snch tribe* ami bands as refuse to accept the benevolent pur poses of what is termed the -Quaker poiicy." There niav be some so impressed with the ne cessity ot' non- resist^ce as to object to the punishment of Indians under the circumstances last referred to. If there be any such, they will. I teel assured, tind opportunity for complaining because the nclicv is not peaceable enough. Thii<K It is'the determination of this policy to see that all supplies, of every kind and nature, whether tor food or clothing, purchased tor such Iudians as are upon reservations and remain at peace, are procured at fair and reasonable prices, so that the Indians meriting these supplies mav receive the game without having the funds of the government squandered n their purchase. If there be any whose voca tion mav be interrupted by being deprived ot the profits which speculation or peculation may have heretofore afforded iu the jmrchases for Indians, such persons will And abundant reason to complain because the ?? Quaker policy" de prives them of the opportunity of gains and profits heretofore enjoyed in this business. fourth. It u the purpose of the government, as fast as possible, through the instrumentality aud hv the advice of the religious organizations, and by all means within its j?ower to procure competent, upright, faithful, moral and religi ous agents to care tor the Indians that go upon rtservations, to distribute the goods and pro visions that are purchased for them by the benevolence of the government; to aid iu their intellectual, moral and religious culture, and thus to assist, in the great work of hnmantty and benevolence which the peace policy means. If there be any who are thusdeprired of govern ment jositions and oflice that have hitherto afforded large profit without labor and without merit, and ? ho are to be preveuted in the future from defrauding Indians for their own personal gain, those persons may complain of the ??Quaker Policy" and demand extermination. Fiftk. It is the purpose of the peace policy to establish schools,and, through the instrumen tality of the Christian organizations acting In harmony with the government, as fast as possible to build churches and organize Sab bath schools, whereby these savages may be taught a better way of life than they have heretofore pursued, and be made to understand the comforts aud benefits of a Christian civiliza tion. and thus be prepared ultimately to become citizens of this great nation. These, I understand to be the purposes of the President's peace policy; and this seems to be the occasion when it ought to be so studied as understood, tor I believe that when under stood, there are few American citizens who will rind the heart to condemn it. 1 also feel at liberty to sav that, as here explained, it has the apptobation'of every member of the President'* Cabinet, and that the Secretary of War aud the Secretary of the Isterior mill hereafter, a* they have heretofore, act in perfect accord and with perfect sincerity in endeavoring fully and completely to carry out and execute this policy.
