The Polaris in ventilation at the nary yard Is still in progress, and is conducted by Secretary Robeson in person with clo.-ed doors, with every precaution to ire vent newspaper reporters from getting hold of ihe facts devel oped. Yesterday Herron, the steward, with the cook of the Polaris, and one member of the crew, were examined, but no new facts of im portance, beyond those already published in The Star, were elicited. The massacre of Modoc captives at the Lost river crossing, mentioned in another col umn, is denounced by every one here, and both General Sherman with the military, and Attor ney General Williams with the judicial author ities, will exercise every possible means to cap ture and punish the culprits.

He reports the collections from special taxes in his district to be already above nis highest estimate. Supervisor McDonald, of Missouri, also re ports to the Commissioner that "the new stamp system for the payment or special tax has the eftect to make tax-payers prompt in securing license, and is convinced that under Its operation at least twenty per cent, more taxes will be se cured to the government than were obtained under the old law." Thb Postal Card Hitch?Manufacture of tke Card? Again Gving on at the Rat* of 500.00O Per Day.?Postmaster General Crenwell had a conference this afternoon with Mr. E. Morgan, treasurer of the Morgan Envelope company, of Springfield, Mass., (which has the oontract for printing the postal cards,) and Messrs.

There were present besides the Postmaster Gen eral and these parties, Mr. Wfci. M. Ireland, Acting Third Assistant Postmaster General, Mr. A. D. Hazen, who has charge of the stamp division of the Department, and Ma jor Petherbridge, chief of special agents. The gentlemen representing the manufacturing companies explained at length the difficulties under which tney hare labored, and stated that these have been almost entirely overcome, and that hereafter the department will have no rea

son to complain, either of the quality of the paper or the number of cards produced. Mr, Morgan stated that his company has bow ob tained a sufficient number of presses, and has otherwise so increased its facilities as to be able to again tarn oat 300,000 cards ot the beat quali ty per day, and that in a short time they wfll be able to produce 1,000,000 per diem.

Oar Modoc elephant la likely to cause more trouble before It is finally disposed of. Some persons who profess to know a thing or two are already predicting that neither Capt-Jack nor any of his followers will he hung. The Mili tary commission will be organised by General Schofield, and will doubtless try them promptly, but the findings of that court must be approval by the President, and then comes the tug ot war. The first question to be brought before tl e President by the adherents of the peac< policy will be one denving the legality of the mil itary commission|whfch is to try the culprit* on the ground that Gen. Canby was not killed as commander of the armv In the Department or Columbia, but was killed while acting as * peace commissioner, having been placed at th?j head of the commission by a special agreement between the President and Secretary of the Interior, with full power in the premises. He could have removed a commissioner if be thought it necessary, and was specially selected f?r this special duty. The Secretary of War, In the order announcing Gen. Cauby's death, date April 14th, says Re was killed "while he was endeavoring to mediate for the removal of the Modocs from their present rocky fastness on the northern border of California to a reser vation where the tribe could be maintained and protected by the proper civil agents of the gov ernment." Praee men farther declare that Gen. Canby was not surrounded by any troops when he was killed, but having gone oat as a peace commissioner, away from his command, met his death, and the murderers cannot then - fore be punished by a military tribunal, but only by the civil authorities. A* to the killing of Major Thomas and tho^s with him at a later date the military commis sion can take no cognisance of that affair, a- a state of war then existed between our troops and the Modocs Should the President over rule these objections, peace men will then pro pose, it is said, to bring the whole question be fore the Supreme Court of the United States by suing out a writ of kab^a$ coryui. The mas sacre of Modoc captives, noticed in an other column, has created some public sympathy lor the tribe. The peace men claim that the language of the order from the War Department announcing General Canby'sde&tii shows conclusively that he was acting as a peace commissioner, and they quote therefrom that portion which speaks of General Canby as having gone with the peace commissioners, " after which he seems to have accompanied them to a last conference with the savage chiefs in sup posed friendly council, and there met his death by treachery outside of his military lines." The White ?odors of Oregon. ItLOOPY MASSACRE OF INMAN PRISONERS. DispatcLes from Doyle's camp, dated Sundav, relate the particulars of an atrocious massaeie of Modoc prisoners, supposed to have keen per Ktrated by Oregon volunteers. Saturday morn g James Fair child and about a dosen other men left Fairchild's ranche,Cottonwood creek, with seventeen Mudoe captives, including wo men and children, and Shack Nasty Jim, Bocut Charley Techee, Jack Pony, ami Little John, llie Indians were In a wagon drawn by four mul's. At the crossing of Lwt river the party encountered a band of Oregon volunteer' Wider command of Capt. Aiser. The soldier* gathered about the wagon and questioned F*ir The latter told them the Indians were all Hot Creeks, except Little John, and that there were no charges against them. Fairchild undertook to push on to Boyle's camp, and tha volunteers retired to their camp near Crowley's. On the road Fairchill noticed two men ahea'l, riding to Rocky Point as If to intercept him. When the train approached the two men, one of them presented a needle gun at Fairchild, sav ing: "Get down, von o'd white-headed " "By what authority?" ?aid Fairchild. "By mine. 1 am GOINO TQ KILL TBI INDIANS and yon, too," was the reply. The latter caught hold of the mules and unhitched them, cutting the harness. Fairchild, clinging to the lines, leaped to the ground. The poor wretches im plored for mercy and begged Fairchild to save them. The warriors were unarmed, and knew resistance was useless. They were the coolest in the party, although facing inevitable death: but the women and children shrieked, groaned and wept piteously. Fairchild had nothing b'it a small pistol, ana six inches trout his ear was the muzzle of the needle-gun. He says tears came into his eyes, and he mingled his autre*, ties with those ot' the Modocs, in%opes the mas sacre might be avoided. He adds: "it was A TERRIBLE SCENE, ?n/> J "J1 all never forget. I shudder when I tbink what I saw ami heard. The tearful voice oi the women and children still ring in my ears, but the cowardly bounds were not to be balked.'.' A shot, and Little John lay dead in the wagon, with a bullet in his brain. The mules dadied ?way with Fairchild, who became entangled in the lines. Five more shots were fired in rapid succession, by which Tehee, Jack Pony ami Mooch were Rilled, and Little John's souaw was frightfully wounded in the shoulder. Avar ahead on the road, in the direction of BoyleY carnp, a cloud of dust was perceived, indicating the approach of a team. The murderers as pi ea the dust, and shortly afterwards were riding Sergeant Murphy, of battery ? ' 4th artillery, with teamen and a teamster, caiue up to THE SCENE O* TBI If ASP ACER. The sergeant took charge of affairs and re mained with his men on the ground. Fairchild. a teamster, and the wounded squaw with her two children, came in at 2 o'clock this mornin* Fairchild reached General Davis' headquarters and related his story. Trains, with an escort were at once sent to bring the prisoners, dead and alive. No steps were taken for the appre hension of the felons who performed the bloody work. It is generally supposed that the guilty Sartles were Oregon volunteers. Fairchild is ot kat opinion himself. The warriors killed were not charged with murder. Thuoe who know them best say they hare only participated in open fights. Every one condemns the affair as atrocious and without excuse. CAPTAIN JACK'S PLRA. An interview between General Davis, Captain Jack and Schonchin was held on Sundav. The Modoc chief says he was incited to his cruel warfare by Allen David, chief of the Klamath*. He also denied having killed General Caubv, and laid the blame on his boys. Schonchin told the same story. Thb Burning op thr Alrxandra Fal *cb IB London.?The total loss by the burning of the Alexandra palace in London is estimated at *3,000.000, on which the insurances amount toSU)0,000. The Are was caused by the care lessness of the workmen who were repairing the sine roof. No one was killed, as at first re ported, but several persons were injured. The supply or water was scarce, hence the rapidity with which the fire was spread. Within a hair hour from the time the alarm was given the en tire structure was enveloped in flames, and one by one the great domes by which it was Mr mounted fell in with a sound like thunder. The large organ was destroyed, but some valuable pictures and other works of art were saved. ?

Mr. Wallack net> up the speeUi defense. through his counsel, that be owns an I conducts his theater as a private business, an<l that he has sold and will sell tW-kets, at his own discretion or pleasure, to different persons at different prices, and that when persons apply to him for tickets, lie sells or declines to sell, as he s? e* fit. He farther claim.- the right to revokr any ticket alter it has been sold, and to rescind any contract entered into relative to admitting Sersons to his theater. It is admitted by the dense that Wallack's agent sold colored men tickets, but this was only done under the supposition that thev were for the use of other people. Wallach ssys his refusal to allow the plaintiffs to enter his the ater was an arbitrary one, as was also the re scinding of the supposed contract, in managing his private business and in directing who shall and y ho shall pot participate In the pleasures of his entertainment!, atui claims that the col ored men were not excluded because of their race. In consideration of this, the answer closes by asking that the complaint be dismissed. Th.? answer was not sworn to, although the com plaint was, and ex-Ju<1ge Culver declined to receive It as answer until verified, and returned the papers to the counsel for the defence. They wt re m nt to him M&in yesterday, within which it was stated that Wallack declined to swear to the papers, because by so doing he would sub ject himself to a suit for felony. In excluding these men from his theater he committed an act, the highest charge against which Is a mi* demtanor, consequently tie can't be indicted for felony. There is a sect ion of the code which provides that when the complaint is sworn to, subsequently the answer shall likewise be veri fied. Judge Culver demands that the code shall be complied with and until it is done he will not consider the answer valid. If the counsel for the defence continue to refuse to swear to ther answer, the case will be taken before a judge by the counsellor the plaintiff and a decision l>e demanded.

San Francisco, June 10?Mayor Alvord to night vetoed th< notorious "pig-tail" ordin ance of the board of supervisors, requiring the heads of Chinese prisoners in the county Jail to be shaved. The mayor takes the ground that sueli puuistment would be infamous, and that it would make unjust distinction iu violation of the terms in our treaty with China, as well a* of the laws of the United States. He also ve toed the ordinances requiring the Chinese laun dry men to nay a special tax of ? 11 a quarter for each and every Chinaman employed. The action of the mayor meets the approval of the majority of our citizens, and even those who are op{>osed to Chinese immigration. a? th< course of the municipal legislation concerning the Chinese had taken the form of persecution.

Albany, Jane 10 The Court of Appeal* were unanimous in their opinion granting Stokes r new trial. There are two opinion written, one by Grover and the other by Kap patto. The charge is held to be erroneous on the point that the law presumes murder from the fact of the killing, and calls on the prisoner to mitigate or Justify. Also, there were erron in excluding proof of threats by deceased to kill the prisoner. Also, an error in permitting Mrs. Morse to contradict Jennie Turner in collateral matter called out on the cross-examination ot Jennie, namely: As to whether she left Mrs Morse's against her wish, and because the de tectives were said to be after her soon after tin homicide. There were other points discussed bat these are the principal owe*. r Tert ] TOUPO WALWORTH INDICTED FOR MURDER IN THB FIRST DEORBR.
