REPORT OP TUR COM* IKSIONkR Of 1IDUX A r PAIR*. 1 be Commissioner of Indian Affairs, to whom were referred for investigation the complaints oi" certain parties who alleged that they were unfairly treated in the recent letting of con tracts tor Indian supplies, to-day submitted his ret ott to tlie Acting Secretary of the Interior After statiug all the on uinstances ot the opeu n?gof bids and award of contract*, aud he made the awards on the unanimous finding* oi the purchasing committee of the board ol In dian commissioners and Gen. Cowen, A'si-t*nt Secretary of the Interior l>epartment. the com miiwiouer says: "That some mistakes were made by which deserving bids did not receive due e<>nsideration is not impossible,but no new ?sets have yet been disclosed to tills offioe*h:eli iu my judgment would be likely to lead to a dif ferent award if it were now to l?e made uuder the advice of the same parties." The bids of Messrs. Harlan, Church ana Mi Idleton. for trans|>ortatioti. ti jur and bacon, which were lower than the bid upou which the contract was made, were rejected tn accordance with the law which gives the agents of the gov ernment authority to reject any or all bid*, or to accept other than the lowest bids, if in their judgmeiit it is to the interest of the government to do so. In the ease of the awards for the trat<si>ortation and supply of cattle for *?me of the Indian tribes, the Commissioner says that while the bid of the party coiuplainiiig was lower than the one who received tlie award, it was regarded as obscure and informal, and could not have been modified without doiug injustice to other bidders. In this particular case he requests that the bid of the protectant be referred to the Solicitor of the Department for his Interpretation of its meaning. A Ho.kkski BrTOHKKY lit New York? SkixkiNj, Munirr of a Scittort tmrind* r.?Joseph Waltz, a young man w ho was arrested on sus picion of murdering Harmon Hulcher, a scis>or grinder, at Athens, New York, on the 1st of May, has made a loll confession of the crime, and directed where the body and money could be found. He states that the deed was done about 10 o'clock in the evening on the 1st of May. He went to the room occupied by Hulcher, whom lie found asleep, and struck liiiu three times with a hatchet, the first time with the blunt part and twice with the sharp >i>le: he only groaned and ail was over. Waltz then took the lK>dy to the stone wall, where traces ot blood were found, and covered it up, and there he leit it until the next lii^ht. when he took it dowe to the orchard and buried it. The officers took Waltz out at his own suggestion to the place wl.t re the body was buried. A few inches below the surtacc the body was found, wrapned iu a blanket, and the head horribly mangled. Waltz also contest*.** to having burned three school houses in Athens and buried the books, which have been found at the place he designated. On being asked why he committed the murder he replied: "I done "it tor mischief, and not for Kain: the bad spirit was in me, and I wanted to <)o something bad." He took good care to secure the scissors grinder's money however. A CrBAJt Cato?The telegraph reports that the Cuban General Agrainontc. seeing that hi. capture was inevitable, committed suicide rather than fall alive into the hands ot tlo Spaniards. This conduct is quite in the Koman vein, it being ouce considered a nol-le thine tor treat commanders to commit sdf-destructioti rather than be captured. Cato, shut up in I'tica, after his defeat at Tliaps;is; Brutus and Cassius, alter their defeat at I'hillippi, are familiar enough examples of great men pre ferring suicide to capture: but in modem times wc are accustomed to trown u{<on this metl?td of avoiding the "slings aud arrows dl outrage ous fortune." It is said that Bourbaki at tempted suicide after his defeat on the Swis? borders, in the late Franco-German war; but 1 i- attempt was ascribed to temporary aberra tion of mmd rather to pure chagrin aud vexa tion. The Wheat Prospect in the Grkat We ;t. j The papers of the great grain-growing districts of the west continue to rej<ort that the spring ' has been most favoiable for the putting in ot ' w heat, aud that a greatly increased breadth lias ' been planted. The crop "#ill probably be a very heavy one. The plants are remarkably thrifty, and the principal danger seems to t>e that the\ will grow too rank, so that much will " lodge" and l>e injured or destroyed by wet weather about harvest time. It is altogether certain now that the ext>ort demand for American wheat will be very heavy during the coming year. Farmers, therefore, need entertain no appre hension of a dull market. Their wheat will be aft wanted at good prices. Their chief trouble will arise from insufficient means of traus portation.
