San Francisco, May 23, 1873. The following despatch has just been re ceived in Yreka, dated Fairchild's ranch, May 20, four o'clock P. M: ? While General Davis, Inspector General Bardie, Colonel Green, Colonel Sumner, Colonel Gillem, Colonel Hoyt, Lieutenants Sock well and Adams, with their escort, were ?t route to Van Bremer's, having left the lava l>ed about ten o'clock in the morning, a courier intercepted them and delivered a de spatch to General Davis, whereupon the Warm Spring Indians and scouts in advance were re called, and the programme instantly changed, And General Davis determined upon Fair child's ranoh instead of Van Bremer's for his Altars headquarters. The place is about twenty-three miles northwest of the lava bed. OAPTAIV HASBROITCK'h OALLANT BLUE COATS. Captain Hasbrouck left Boyle's Camp May 7 laid has been scouting ever since. His com mand consists of Battery B, Fourth artillery ; Troops B and G, First cavalry, and Warm Spring Indians, numbering in all 210 men. Captain Jackson had charge of Troops B and O, with which he harassed the Indians, ffin Xnen fought well in every instance, and paid little heed to hunger, so that they vanquished the Indians. Captain Hasbrouck specially praises the gallantry of B troop and a portion of G in the charge at Dry Lake. The men iBcaled a ridge twenty-five feet high in face of the Modocs, and drove them away. Captain Jackson led the right and Lieutenant Moss the left, and Lieutenants Boutelle and Kyle held other bold positions. Captain Hasbrouck has not lost a man since the Dry Lake engage , ment MODOC LOSSES TOLD BV SQUAW CAPTIVES. Art em, Chokus. (Long Legs,\ One-eyed Dixie and two Modocs, residents of this jcanch, last evening interviewed the five women captured by Captain Hasbrouck's Command, and from them gleaned interesting aooounts of Modoc operations during the last Stm month*, jQw cauiiveg wc its, W^apo-. tel, Boston Charley's two sisters, the mother of Black Jim and one maiden whose relatives have attained no notable distinction. They report that Shack Nasty Frank, Shack Nasty Jake, Shack Nasty Bill, Steamboat Frank, Ellen's man, Hawker Jim's father, Boston Nick and several other Modocs, have been killed, and many wounded. I.EAD TOO HEAV? FOB THEM. Cnrley-headed Jack carried a piece of lead in his body several dayB, and when last seen was apparently booked for the happy hunting ground. The inability of Little John to travel at a rapid pace delayed the band Has brouck encountered and got the Modocs into this last difficulty. JACK'S CHBONOMITRICAL PROGNOSTICATIONS FAIL. The account of the disaffection among the Modocs after the battle is interesting. Jack consulted a stolen chronometer, and, after sundry gestures and exclamations, promised his followers that they would shed rifle bul lets as a duck does water and escape un harmed. The confidence this statement in spired was rapidly dispellod by Captain Has bro uck's encounter, when several Modocs were killed and others wounded. Indignation reigned supreme in Jack's household. The Cottonwood branch of the tribe from Fair childs decided they would fight no more. This resolution led to Jack's clandestine de parture. The Cotton wdods, numbering twenty warriors and fifty women and chil dren, hurried to the Snow Mountains, at the Southern end of the lava deposit, preparatory to travelling to the Yainox reservation and imploring paTdon from the Great Father at Washington. MRS. "IJMPEY" SCALPED?"LIMPET," JUNIOR, BESCUED. The sudden and unexpected advent of Has brouck's cavalry and Warm Spring Indians disturbed their peaceful meditations and caused them to run or fight During the stampede Mrs. Hendricks, alias "Limpey," threw her six months old infant to the ground, in the hope of escaping, but was soon after wards killed by a Warm Spring warrior. The babe was brought hither and turned over to a squaw. Artena also learned from the Modoc women that the Cottonwood Indians earnestly desired any action looking to the restoration of peace, and would yield to the soldiers if an opportunity were offered to them. THE WABU SPRINGERS STOP THE IN TEE VIEW. About this time the gentle Warm Spring Indians, who were outside the interviewing apartment, commenced singing one of their national melodies and drawing their bright knives across their neat moccasins, which caused an uneasiness among the squaws and terminated the consultation. ABTENA CHORDS AND DIXIT. AS PEACE EMISSARIES. Captain Hasbrouck said he was willing to have the Modoca surrender, and would afford them every facility for so doing. Artena Chokus and Dixie, who have hitherto been of great service to the government, caught the idea immediately and wanted to be employed as emissaries. They were provided with horses and provisions for two days, and sent after the Modocs. They started on their mis sion early this morning. The results thus far achieved are in a great measure attributable to the conduct of General Davis. He found the ! officers and men disheartened by their terrible reverses and that demoralization had really commenced. GENERAL DAVIS REPORTS FROM KLAMATH RESER VATION. A second despatch, dated May 21, six o' clock A. M., says that General Davis has just returned from the Klamath Reservation. He says there is no disposition on the part of the Indians in that locality to join the Modocs. A few young men and "hoodlum" warriors on the reservation might have been induced to enlist under Captain Jack had he met with continued succcss, but his defeat has damp ened their ardor. No trouble is now appre hended from the Modocs slipping into the Yainox agency and inciting the young "bucks" to mischief. A third despatch, dated Fairchild's ranch, May 21, eight o'clock A. M., says: ? The latest order locates the headquarters at Van Bremer's, whither the infantry went yes terday. General Davis remains here for the present. RETURN OF THE EMISSARIES. A fourth despatch, dated Fairchild's, May | 21, says:? Artena, Chokus and One-Eyed Dixie re turned at dusk this evening from the direction of Dorris* ranch. Mr. Fairchild, the gentle man who luis cleverly engineered this con sultation business, judged that the Modocs must be at least fifteen miles away. Both the women said in substance that they had trav elled a long distance. The women were taken to General Davis' tent, into the presence of General Hardie, Colonel Gillem and Captain Hasbrouck, Fairchild interpreting. True to their nature, these women talked a long while and said but little. Finally Artena sarid the Indians were fifteen miles from here, and numbered fiitsen warriors and fifty squaws and children. MODOC HEARTS BLEEDING. The Great Spirit had caused their hearts to bleed for the white people, and they all wanted to return to the fold and live in peace among the whites; bat in the present condi tion of affairs a due regard for their lives pre vented them from appearing within reach of the army. They wanted a peace talk, and said, tfco gre?t white father (moving General Davis) come oat and see them alone, and talk over matters. Through that medium the parties might come to an amicable under standing, but no Modoc would surrender with out a peace talk. Dixie corroborated the statements of Artena. The interview lasted an hour and three-quarters. GENUAL DAVIS OFFERS TERMS OF SURRENDER. At the close, General Davis told Artena and Dixie to go back to the Modoc's camp to morrow morning and tell the Indians that he should not come out for a peace talk ; that he did not believe in peace talks away from his men ; that the Indians must come to him if they wanted to talk. He would allow them to surrender, and they had until Friday morning to make their appearance at his headquarters ; after that time he should shoot every Modoc found with a gun. The women told Mr. Fair child that they would not return to the Modoc camp. That question will be settled in the morning. , Colonel Ferry has arrived with his cavalry. Snow is falling.

Yreka, Cal., May 23, 1873. From J. H. McCoy, who just came in from Fairchild's in eight hours and fifty minutes, we learn that the Hot Creek band were brought in by Fairchild's party and surrendered to General Davis. Their surrender was ap parently unconditional Tbey gave up their arms and were put under guard. The band numbered fifty-five men, women and children, including fifteen warriors. Among the latter are Bogus Charley, Shack Nasty Jim, Curly Headed Doctor Frank and others?the best fighting men Captain Jack had. Boston in believed to have been killed. Troops are hunting for Hawker Jim.

General Gillem has been superseded. Gen erals Whoaton, Hardie, Gillem, Lieutenant Rockwell and others are expected from the front this evening, when further particulars of the surrender will probably be obtained. NO MORE PEACE HUMBUG. Mr. McCoy Bays General Davis was very bluff with the Indians, and gave them to understand that if they attempted to escajie they would be shot by the guard. MR. MEACHAM AT TREEA. Mr. A B. Meacham, ex-Peace Commis sioner, arrived this morning from Salem, Oregon. The object of his visit has not transpired. PARTICULARS OF THE SURRENDER. San Francisco, May 23, 1873. A special despatch to the Bulletin gives the following particulars of the surrender of the Hot Spring band of Modocs: ? Fairchtld'b Ranch, May 22?3 P. M. At one o'clock this afternoon One-Eyed Dixie returned to General Davis' headquarters at a slashing pare, his horse being completely blown. He made obeisance and at once let his tongue loose, reporting that the Indinns were close at hand and ready to enter the camp under escort. All they asked was Fairchild to come out and meet them. No soldiors need come The presence of Fairchild would bo considered a guarantee of good faith. '"WHERE 18 ABTENA ? " asked General Davis. "Tied up," said Dixie ; "long ride and no water." The absence of Artena gave rise to sus picions of foul play, which were only dis pelled by her sudden advent She, too, reined her foaming cayuse before General Davis and said that the Indians were hoveT ing about the hills near here yearning to sur render to the Tyfce. Fairchild Blair and two or three employes of the former, with whom the Indians were acquainted, mounted swift 6tecds at the re quest of General Davis and started with Dixie. JOY IN THE CAMP. Five o'Clock P. M. The news of the intended surrender of the Indians spread through the camp like wild fire. Soldiers, Warm Spring Indians and scouts ware alike elated at the prospect of a peaceful victory. MODOCS AFRAID OP THE SOLDHB8. ? ?$l|W Di(ie told General Pavia before she started that the Modocs feared the soldiers would kill them the instant they entered the camp. It required a great deal of diplomacy to convince her that the soldiers dared not dis obey his commands. Donald McKay, Captain of the Warm Spring Indians, also had to pledge his word that the scouts would not in terfere. MRS. dixie m 1 tight PLACE. Dixie would leave, bit Dixie had very little choice. She was told that the government did not intend to trifle any longer. She might go to the Modocs or not according to her own wishes, but she must leave the camp. The Great Typee wanted no squaws about here. She saw the point of the argument, and no longer hesitated. That is why she changed her mind this morning after she had deoided not to carry any more messages to the Modocs. "Hew they Come I" Faibchild'b Ranch, May 22?6 P. M. "Here they come!" was the cry that startled the camp a few moments since and brought every person?citizen and soldier, old and young?to his feet, hurrying forward to the crest of the hill west of the camp. I secured an excellent view of the scene beyond the procession that was slowly creeping along in this direction. First came Mr. Blair, the manager of Fairchild's ranch, mounted; fifty yards behind him was Mr. Fairchild, and further still twelve Modoc bucks, with their squaws and papooses. Never did a procession move more slowly. The few ponies, ridden by the Modocs, were gaunt and weak, and seemed scarcely able to bear the women and children who were literally piled upon them. APPEARANCE OF JACX's BUCKS. Among the bucks were Bogus Charley, Steamboat Frank, Curley-hftided Doctor

and others of lesser note. They were dressed in motley garbs, nearly all of them wearing a portion of the regular uniform of the United States Army, and every buck carried a Springfield rifle. The women were dressed in clothes that had evidently been used by the fair sex within the confines of civilization. All of them entered camp at a funereal pace. The noise and bustle among the soldiers were hushed ; few words were spoken. The Modocs said nothing. No one ap proached them until General Davis came for ward. He met the procession fifty paces from the house, and was formally introduced to Bogus Charley. BLOODTHIRSTY BOO ITS CHARLEY SMILES sweetly. Charles is a slender, athletic, intelligent warrior, of about twenty years of age. The man thoroughly understands and speaks ifnglish. The scamp smiled sweetly on the General, and shook his hand, and then all the leading warriors came forward and greeted him cordially. Then, every buck laid his gun beside him and awaited orders. General Davis said, "Give up your pistols and all your other arms." Each buck said he had no arms. "Then," B&id the General, "I shall give you a camp where you can remain to-night, and if you try to run or escape you will be shot dead." The order was explained and all obedience promised. MOTLEY CROWDS OF CAMP FOLLOWERS. The procession then moved across Cotton wood Creek to a cltfmp of trees. At this point the trailings of the crowd came in. There were half naked children, aged squaws who could scarcely hobble, blind, lame, halt, bony and the scum of the tribe. There were sixty three persons, men, women and children? twelve bucks, twenty squaws and their chil dren. Mr. Fairchild says there are twenty bucks missing from the Cottonwood branch of the tribe. Bogus Charley said Boston Charley had been killed. The disaffection heretofore re ported is corroborated by the Captain of the Modocs, who parted company with Captain Jack eight days ago. Captain Ives is now drawt&g rations and ar ranging for a feast Captain E. M. Camp arrived from Van Bremer's this afternoon. Companies E and G of the Twelfth infantry will remain here on guard. Captain Kingsbury commands Com pany E. General Wheaton and Captain Winters reached here this morning. C APT All* JACK TO BE HOTLY PURSUED. The artillery has been divided into squad rons and the Warm Spring Indians into small parties for the purpose of following Captain Jack's faction of the Modoc tribe, and the respective commands will start out in a day or two. Probably the Modocs are in the vicinity of Ball's ranch. It is now well known that the Modocs have been within reach of the road from Ball's ranch to the lava beds for a week or more, and could have done an exten sive business in the butchcring line had they been so disposed. HOOKER JIM SURRENDERS. Seven O'Clock, P. M. Another Modoc has just entered the camp and surrendered. It is Hawker Jim, the Lost River murderer. OFFICIAL BULLETIN FBOM THE SEAT OF WAB. ( , San Francisco, May 23, 1872. To General Sherman, Washington:? Colonel Da via reports that afxrat ball tb? Modocs, being whipped and hard press*! by Harsbrouck, have surrendered uncondition ally. Colonel Davie says he will pu?> pursuit of Jack and his party, and fl0P?S to ead the war noon. J. M. SCHOFIELD, Major General. EFFECT OF THE NEWS IN WASH INGTON. W abhington, May 23, 1873. The news of the defeat of the Modocs was officially received here at ten o'clock to-night, the telegram being addressed to General Sher man. In the absence of the General the mes sage was taken to the Secretary of War, who was highly pleased with the news. General Schofleld telegraphed that ho had received a report from General Davis, com manding our forces against the Modocs, and that about one-half of the redskins, being hard pressed by Captain Hasbrouck, had UNCONDITIONALLY SURRENDERED. General Davis says he will push the pursuit of Captain Jack and his party, and hopes in two or three weeks to end the war. WHAT WILL BE DONS WITH THE PRISONERS has not yet been determined, but as they de fied the government authorities, after peaceful overtures had been made, it is understood that they will all be handed as murderers, that their fate may be a warning to all hostile tribes. The prompt transmission of the news is the subject of comment, in contrast with the de lays heretofore made in informing the War Department of what was going on. FUNERAL OF GENERAL CANBY. Th?
