M. > Via San Francisco, June 2. ) A series of prolonged yells and cheers aroused this camp from a pleasant siesta half an hour after the departure of my last courier. Generals Davis and Wheaton and ",he other officers, and all the men, rushed from the house and tents to find the ^ause of the uproar, and at once I' THE WHOLE CAMP WAS IN COMMOTION. Down the level plain north of the house was to grand cavalcade of mounted horsemen. The Cteeds rushed forward at once at a furious Vate, and soon neared the group of spectators scattered about the premises. "CAPTAIN jack IS captured," Shouted a sturdy sergeant. Again the valley Cohoed with cheers and yells. The mounted command was that of Ferry. He had re turned from a scout of twenty-three hours, three miles above the mouth of Willow Creek. At half-past ten o'clock this morning THE WARM SPRING SCOUTS STRUCK A TRAIL, and after a brief search the Modocs were dis covered. Colonel Ferry surrounded the In dian retreat. His men were bound to fight. jSuddenly a Modoc Bhot out from the rocks With A WHITE FLAG. He met a Warm Springer, and said Captain (Jack wanted to surrender. Three scouts were Cent to meet Captain Jack. Ho came out cau .tieuely, glanced about hiin a moment, and then, AS IF GIVINO UP ALL HOPES, Came forward and held out his hand to his visitors. Then two of his warriors, five Cquaws and seven children, darted forth and joined him in the surrender. THE VICTORS. The command that made this famous scout Was the first squadron of the First cavalry, Colonel D. Perry, composed of Troop F, ?Jjieutennnt Miller, and Troop H, Major Trum bull, and medical officer Assistant Surgeon 'Dewitt The guides were C. Pullman and H. A. Applcgate. CAPTAIN JACK Is about forty years old. He is five feet eight ?Inches high and compactly built. He has a large and well formed lace, full of individuality. Although dressed in old clothes he looks every Inch a chief. HE DOES NOT SPEAK TO ANT ONE. The Modocs are grouped in the field near the house and surrounded by a guard. Spec tators peer into Captain Jack's face with eager Interest, but he heeda them not. He is still a* a statue. BEFORE THE SURRENDER. Green's Camp, Lanc,ell's Valley, J loht river, Oregon, May 31?Evening. V Via San Francisco, June 2, 1873. ) j^fter a thorough examination of the Modoc captives gathered in during the present scout Under Ooknel Green it has been ascertained that the ast haul netted thirty-four men, Vomen and children, thirteen of thsm being ?ble-bodie^warriors; sixteen rifles, of various patterns; 113 cartridges and several lean and hungry poles. Boston Charley and Schon din are anxious about the disposition to be lAide of hem. The former murdered "3>. Thorns, and the latter mutilated Mbacham. Boston and Schonchin look - Me despenloee. Each carries his character in his faod Boston is about twonty-eight of ageat><' Schonchin fifty. the boest warrior of the band is Scar-Faec Charley. Dr. Cabaness, of Yreka, tie contract surgeon, who glept in fceir retreat last night, says of Captain Jack that he presented a most woe-begone appearance. The wily warrior sat upon a rock in the centre of a lit tle lava bed, a few yards back from the crest of a bluff, and seemed as lonely as his sur roundings. He was wrapped in a faded army blanket and his head was buried in his hands. His sistar Mary, cap tured at Willow Creek the day before yesterday, talked to him with tears in her eyes, and asked thatfhe enter our camp. He was sullen and had little to say. He did promise that he would surrendor to-day. In the night he stole away. SETTING THE INSANITY IX)DOE BEFORE TRIAL. J he Modocs say that Jack is insane. There is much method in his madness. At present he is thought to be in this neighborhood, with from three to five warriors. There are twelve Modoc war riors at large now. Scouts were made to day in three sections of the country by cavalry under Colonel Perry, Major Trim ble and Major Cresson. The war with the Modocs, as a tribe, is ovor. Fighting after the guorilla fashion will be probably con tinued until the last outlaw is captured or killed. Captain Hizer's company of Oregon volun teers, numbering forty, arrived in this valley laBt evening and bivouacked near us. They will have a chance to do some little scouting to-day. Scouts After the Fleeing Mori or*?Trans portation of Captive*. Appleoate'b Mansion, Clear Lake, Cal., ) June 1?Afternoon. >? Via San Francisco, June 2, 1873. ) This morning the troops at the camp in LangeU's Valley were divided into several parties and sont out in scouts after the flying Modocs. Just as the scouting parties left the Modoc captives, with the exception of Bogus Charley, Hooker Jim, Steamboat Frank and Shack Nasty Jim, were seut to this ranch, in charge of Lieutenant Taylor, of the Fourth artillery, and a small detachment of men. THE GBEAT QUESTION. "What Shall be Dane With the Murder ers of General Canby and Peace Com minioner Thomait Washington, June 2, 1873. The officers of the government find them selves brought at once to decide the question, "What is to be done with the Modocs?" Per emptory orders were given for the extermina tion of the tribe as soon as the news reached army headquarters of the assassination of General Canby and Peace Commissioner Thomas, but these orders were expected to be carried out in battle. Now that the Indians have surrendered, a strong effort, it is antici pated, will be made by self-styled philanthro pists and humanitarian societies to induce the President to treat them as prisoners of war, and look upon their assassinations and murders as acts of war, and therefore proper subjects lor pardon. SENATOR KELIiEY AND CONGRESSMAN WILSON, of Oregon, the only representatives of the Pa cific coast delegation at prosent in this city, are both agreed upon the course proper to be pursued, and will insist that all the Indians against whom indictments have been found by the Oregon courts shall be given up to the civil authorities of that State for trial. Last I November, just previous to Captain Jack and his tribe taking refuge in the lava beds, they murdered some twenty Oregon settlers in the neighborhood of Lost River. It is for these crimes that the Governor of Oregon has DEMANDED THEIR RENDITION. The Congressional Representatives claim that the government cannot rightfully refuse to give them up; that murders committed on peaceable and unsuspecting citizens cannot in any manner be classed as acts of war, but must be punished in the same manner as murders committed by white men; that the fact of a man being an Indian does not give him the right to murder and rob, or commit any other crime without being called to ac count. There is an intense feeling both in Northern California and Oregon on this sub ject, as evidenced by the letters received here. The last named State is very close in its politics, and it is represented that a decision of the government against the delivery of the Indians to the civil tribunals will have a very decided effect in the next political election. It would undoubtedly throw the State against the administration. EPISCOPAL CHURCH CONFERENCE. Meeting of Prominent Episcopal Clergy man Yesterday ?

Alter some lurtker diacusMinn tjic meeting adjourned till October & THE MEXHMICKAPOO IMBROGLIO Colonel McKenzie's Invasion of Mexico Fully Sustained. PRESIDENT GRANT SPEAKS. "Lawlessness on the Mexican Border Will Be Suppressed With or Without the Con sent of the Mexioan Government." THE PRESIDENT ON ANNEXATION. Washinoton, June 2. 1873. The semi-official statement ot the attitude of the administration in regard to Colonel McKenzie's punishment ol t^' Klckapoos on Mexican territory, which was lurn.siied exclusively to the Mkkald set at rest existing doubts as to whether the gal! caval'.T commander will be sustained in what lie has already done. It can now be stated on the highest authority that the policy or the ad minis tration In protecting the Texan border Is to be aggressive in the fullest sense or the word wilh this qualification, that the United States has no quarrel with the Mexican govern ment or its representatives. but only intend hencelorward to pursue and >unlsh ma rariders whether they are Mexicans or Indians and wherever they may seek refuge. Your corre spon.lent Is imormed that It was not deemed ad visable in Impliedly sustaining Colonel McKenzle to make the staiement too broad. At the time it was written there had been nothing received that would warrant a free expression of approval. Hence In the semi-official statement it said, "so lar as is known Colonel McKenzle obeyed the instruc tions of his superior officer without discussing the propriety of crossing the Rio orande In executing them." " "It may be possible," said my Informant, "that this offlc t exceeded his Instructions, and it is not the purpose of this government to approve law lessness on the part ol our representatives any more than it will tolerate it on the part or its enemies. Hence the care taken that no lalse im pression should Bet abroad that the admlnistra tion was ready to blindly approve everything done by our troops; but Inronnatlon was received to day which makes it no longer necessary to conceal the true meaning or Colonel McKenzle'8 act nor the confidence which the President has in this officer. He was selected by him from personal knowledge of his fitness lor the work he has begun and which, as already.puMished, had been resolved upon." Colonel McKenzle was ordered from Fort Davis to Fort Clark, taking with him the best cavalry lorce iu the army, and placed In position where he could be master of the situation. While his In structions did not In tenure direct him 10 cross the border, he fully understood that it was the desire of those who had selected hint lor his new and impoitant duties that all marauding parties should be hotly pursued and punished without special regard to what streams or lines It might be necessary to cross. His written orders directed him to chastise marauders lrom Mexican terri tory. His verbal instructions covered any loray into Mexico that might be rendered necessary. The President has no longer any reservation in avowing his policy. He says:? "Lawlessness on the Mexican border shall be sup pressed, with or without the consent of the Mexican government, ir she cannot maintain order along her own border, and prevent lncirslons Into the United States, she shall not become a house of refuge for robbers of our cttlzenR, be they Mexicans or Indians. Over the Klckapoo tribe our govern ment has a sovereign right. They bave become the nucleus or the worst of bandits, and henceforth I will use all needed power to protect the lives and property or the citizens of the United States with out regard to the boundary laws or Mexico." It was in accordance with these views that Colonel McKenzle was ordered to the border, and will be upheld lor his last expedition and any simi lar ones in future wnich he finds necessary to undertake. It matters not whether Mexico com plains or not. The President has determined upon the course to be pursued, and It will be lollowed He is fully advised as to the state or affairs in the Northern states oi Mexico. A large majority or the landowners are believed to lie in ravor or an nexation to the United States. As a general thing the Catholic clergy are opposed to it. The local authorities or Individual States are also lor the most part ravorable to a protectorate or annexation. The President does not favor either at present. It will be time enough, he thinks, ror this government to desire Mexican ter ritory, when the inhabitants have acquired some what oi the benefits or civilization so fast extend ing toward the border by means of railroads and increasing population from the Northern and West ern states. Not until we are ready to bridge the Ri* Orande with trans-continental railways, in his ?pinion, will the time come to annex or to accept any or the Mexican domain. This disposes or any Idea that the administration is paving the way for the acquisition or more territory, and the views given are Just as they were expressed by the Presi dent. Nor does he anticipate any trouble with Mexico from Colonel McKenzie's operations along the border, since Mexico has admitted her Inability to prevent these Incursions, and so will not object to the punishment which has followed the Presi dent's policy, and which may be expected In future under similar circumstances. A brier official letter rrom post Fort Clarke, dated May 20, says, alluding to Colonel McKenzie's opera tions against the Klckapoos and Llpung"The march or one hundred miles, the fight and destruc tion or two villages, and the return to camp with all the captured stock and prisoners was ac complished between noon of the 17th and daylight or the 19th, rorty-one hours, with a loss to Colonel McKenzle of only three men wounded, one sup posed mortally."

Arguinontx Before the Nupreme Court. Serious Trouble Threatened if the "Writ is Granted. Litti.k Hock, Ark., June 2. 1R73. In the Supreme Court this morning, Chief Justice McClure, Justices Searle, Stephenson, Grey und Bennett being on the liench, Attorney General Yonley made a motion to tile an application lor a writ 01 quo warranto against Governor Klish.i Bax ter. Yonley says, in his application at the relation of Joseph Brooks, that Baxter, without any legal right or warrant, in violation of liotn, for over four months has held and usurped the ofllce ol Gov ernor, and asks for the writ of quo warranto. Yonley is assisted by Messrs. Benjamin and Whip ple. Judges English and Compton, as amivi qulra. argued lor Baxter, ami stated that they denied? first the right of Yonley to tile the application, and, second, they denied the Jurisdiction ot the Court. Ou argument as to whether it should be Hied, Yonley wanted to know what his rights aH Attor eny General were, and said he had the right to tile tiie application for a quo warranto, but giving no other information; that, Baxter having usurped the office, the people, through him, had a right to inquire into the matter. Kuglish denied his right to file the application, which the Court knew judi cially to be false. The matter had been settled lor ever by the Legislature on their relusing to allow Brooks to contest Itaxter's election, and that Yon ley should file the iniormatlon. If Baxter was an usurper then the acts of the late Legislature were null and void and all its commissions, and the Attorney General and two ol the Supreme Judges were so commissioned. At hail-past live, on the conclusion of English's argument, the Court adjourned to ten o'clock to morrow morning. Considerable excitement exists touching the matter, and the impression prevails that a writ will be issued. Governor Baxter still maintains his position, and will resist the action of the Court. united states marshals defied.

With these were some twenty teamsters, and the combined force defied the Marshals. They could get no posse in that part of the country, and telegraphed to Fort Gibson lor troops. Fourteen soldiers were sent down and six of the band were captured, and the others (led. Tuey were followed towards the Cnerokee Nation. On coming up to some of thein they had a parly unier a dag ol truce. The muiderers agreed to surrender if allowed time to fix their affairs. The Fort.

The London Times of this morning publishes ? special despatch from Berlin, which says the Ger man government |S dlssatislled w11It President MacMahon's address to the French Assembly, and will not enter Into regular diplomatic relations with his government until satisfied that France will laithiully adhere to the treaty of Frankfort. The Francn>?German Convention of June MO, lS7'i?Iu Bearing on tlie Provlaloiu of the Treaty of Frankfort. The Convention between Franco and Germany, signed at Versailles on the 29th of June, 1872, covered hotn the principle and provisions of the Treaty of Frankfort, which was concluded between the same Powers on the 21st of May, 1871, so that it is difficult to understand why the Berlin govern ment has just now become suspicious that Presi dent MacMahon will not falthiUll.y observe the letter of the latter instrument. The Versailles Convention reads as follows:? The President of the French Republic and Ills Majesty the Kmpcror of Germany having resolved to settle by special convention the execution oi tne third and fourth articles of the Preliminary Treaty oi Versailles of February 26,1871, aud ol the seventh article of the Treaty of Peace oi Haiikort-on-tiie Main of May 10, 1871, have appointed tor that par pose, as their plenipotentiaries, the President ol the French Republic, M.

Prince Bismarck's Profession of Pro sal an Neutrality Toward* the Internal Af fairs of France. In the month of October, 1871, Pnnce Bismarck addressed the German Parliament on the subject of Prussia's best policy towards France generally, and specially with respect to the operation of the Franco-German Convention and treaty negotia tions of the same year. The Chancellor said As you wjll remember, we thought It as well to Introduce Into the late treaty of peace a passage relative to the eventual substitution of financial guarantees for the right conceded to us to occupy a portion of the French territory. It was even then anticipated that, under certain circum stances, such a substitution might lie hi the In terest of both parties alike. As to France, there is no doubt she feels the burden of foreign occupa tion. Ic does net only add to her financial liabili ties, but also interferes wltti the consolidation of the existing state ol thlugs. To us, too. It is any thing but agreeable to have to leave some divisions of the army in France. The burden mar not be very heavily felt, but still It is a burden, and the sooner we can rid ourselves of It thelietter. Such being the case, the Frcncli government sought to exchange the territorial pledge they have given us for a financial security. Certain hankers were ready to give their signatures for the 05o,ooo,ooof. due up to May 1, In consideration of a provision of something like 1K per cent. Tbe French govern ment would not have objected to make the sacrifice of, which this arrangement involved, but. unfortunately, the kind of guarantee offered i>y die capitalists In question was not sufficiently binding to be accepted by us. If It were to he of any use to us?in other words, if it were to in demnify us for the relinquishment of a territorial pledge? tlie signatures of those financial gentlemen ought to have been given in such a way as to supply us with marketable securities. But the bankers insisted upon our not parting with their bills before fne day of payment. Suppose we had agreed It would have been difficult to hold the bankers responsible should, contrary to our wishes and expectations, the present state of things in France have been shaken by violent commotions. At all events, I and my col leagues could not help thinking that in such a case the promise of the existing government of France to provide lor punctual pay ment would not have been materially strengthened by the conditional signature of a banking house. With the approval of His Majesty the Emperor, I have, therefore, thought that It devolved upon me to devise another mode of settling the matter. The new arrangement lightens France's difficulties without, In my opinion, exposing us te danger. We evacuate a portion of French territory, but only on the distinct understanding that, if the new terms or payment conceded by France be not ad hered to, we are entitled to reoccupy tie aban doned departments. In the meantime the evacu ated territory is declared neatral ground, anil wtll be garrisoned by a limited number of French troops, just sufTlcient to insure the maintenance of order and quiet. I think I may say that iu tins wise we hhvc readerod a material service to F'rance, and have assisted her In the development and consolidation of her do mestic politics. I congratulate myself the more on this resnlt, inasmuch as I do not con sider it our task to weakeu our neighbor beyond the degree absolutely required to Insure the main tenance of peace. On the contrary. I think It our duty and our interest to 4o France a good turn whenever we can, and to enable her to recover frem her past misfortunes, as far as compatible with our own safety. I likewise adhere to the principle enunoiated and approved by yen last Spring?the principle that the domestic affairs of France are no concern of ours, and that It does not behoove us to meddle with them except where our own interests require to be protected. I therefore hold that we should be reaping no advantage?at anv rate, ne advantage that would not be counter balanced by many and sensible disadvantages were we to Insist upon the continued occupation of a large portion or France, with a view to Influ ence the internal affairs of the country.
