Tbe mlalng settlement! will soon be deserted anless the terror of retnrnlng across tbo open plains, which are now infested by bands of blood thirsty Sioux, should counterbalance In the minds of the unfortunates the hardships and perils of remaining where they are. Food and ammunition they report la be vfery scanty there and held by the traders at fabu lous prices. Many of TUB RSPKSTTAKT BXIGRAXTS suffer from enforced toting, except when they may cbanes to secure small supplies of wild game, which* has become very shy.

WASHINGTON Reply of Earl Derby to Secretary Fish in the Winslow Case. THE AMERICAN POSITION SEVERELY CRITICISED. Why Secretary Brislow Was Blackballed by the Union League Club. TAMMANY'S OPPOSITION TO TILDEN. Action of the Ohio Convention and Thurman's Candidature. FROM OUR REGULAR CORRESPONDENT. Wasiiixgtox, May 17, 1876. BEPI.X OF THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT IN THE WINBLOW CASE?SECRETARY FlBTl's POSITION REGARDED IS UNTENABLE?SEVERE STRIC TURES ON THB ATTITUDE OF THE VHITED STATES. Tbe foreign mail brought today tbe reply of Karl Derby to Mr. Fib's protest to tho govornmert of Great Britain against the vlulation of tho ttrnn of tho extradition treaty. Tho copy of tho nott was transmitted to Washington by Colonel Hoff man, our ChnrgiS d'Affatres at London In tho absonce of Minister Schenck. ;Tho document is a pleco of fencing with our government to defer the issue which Mr. J Ish has raited of a latluro on tho part of Groat Britain to comply with tho terms of tho oxtraditiou troaty in detaining tho forger WInslow. Tho note or Earl Derby In qulto longthy aa woll as Orm in tone. It doos not I yield to the position taken by Mr. Fish in the slightest, and the ground Is assumed by the British Foreign Office that tho act of 1870 has nothing nocessarlly to do with tho case In disputo, so far as the provisions of the troaty rolate to the ex tradition of Winslow. With or without tho act or 1870 the .-amo objection would apply to tho surrendor of a person cot duly declared extraditabto by tbe magisterial dixit ot ?u English court, hav ing jurisdiction or extraditablo oflonces. Tho same process or law as observed now was olio wed In extraalting fugitives before the law of 1870 went upon the British statute book*. Thore Is no rea son for varying from what was the custom thon. In pursuanco of this line ol argument it is urged that this must evidently be the caso, bccause heretofore no such exception has been takon aa Is now Insisted upon by Mr. Fish, whoso objection now Is regarded as a mere technicality. More especial emphasis Is laid upon tho provision of the troaty In regard to the extradition or persons chargod with political crimes, as to whom and its provisions Mr. Fish makes much ado, but it ie ar gtied If persona charged with crime?and tbe offcnco may be political only?are to be extradited, who Is to Judge whether the crime Is political or not f When Great Britain is to deliver up a prisoner, shall it not in such a caso be Great Britain, and shall It not be through the magis trates and tbe critical examination of the law ? Rut Mr. Fish seems to question, if not deny, the right of magisterial interferenceandjudgmcnt,and clalma that as Secretary orstato be must decide. Tho position taken by Mr. Fish tn th?s respect la regarded aa untenable, If not absurd. Boch an attempt to construe the treaty would lose not only the men but also the treaty. Emphasis is laid on a similar mlastop when Mr. Cass was Sec retary of State. After a treaty bad been negotiated between Great Britain and the United Statea Mr. Cass objected to Its submission to Parliament, and thus lost tho wholo treaty It Is further maintained that Great Britain, in her disposi tion to serve tbe ends of law and Justice, was disposed to extend tbe limitation of the class of casea to be comprehended In treaty stipulations with this country, so as to take In all ! crimos, while tbe interpretation of American oillclila has Inclined them to circumscribe them by technical analysis snd dissection. The altitude of the United Statea government and Its recent treatmont of the extradition provisions are not regarded aa lair or | equitable to England nor within tho purview ot either an exact or liberal ineanltg and Interpretation ot the treaty and its provisions. THE BLACKBALLING OF SECItETART BBI8TOW BT THE UNION LEAGUE CLUB?THE CAUSE OF MB. DURANT'S ENMITT?A BTORT ABOUT DRAW BACKS ON SUGAR. A leading official of the Treasury Department la authority tor the following version of tho dispute, the misunderstanding arising out or which is believed to have been the motive that induccd tbe blackballing or the Secretary or the Treasury ou tbe recent presenta tion of his usme tor membership in tbe Union League Club or Now York. On the supposition that the cause or the trouble Is the sssortion of Mr. Cbarlos W. Durant that .Secretary BrUtow had rerused to fulfil an assur ance to him in a mattor of drawback allowanco on a cargo or cargoes of exported sugar, this official goca on to say that an examination has been made or the case of which Mr. Durant complains and that this examination shows that Mr. Durant's hostility to Socrotary Brlstow is rounded on tho fact that the Secretary refused to follow a former decision or tbe department, which would hove given Mr. Durant over $8,000 rrom the Treasury to which the Secretary maintained ho had no lawlu! claim. Mr. Durant e claim to drawback arose from the ract that his tlrnt had Imported and paid duty on a large amount or coarse sugar which they bad rcilned aud Intended to export. The law provided that, in case of exporta tion of artioles mado or materials which had paid im port duty, an amnnnt should be .repslU rrom the Treasury to such exporter equal to the duty on iba imported materials used in such exported articles, snd no inorfc This rcfood Is called drawback, and some times "bounty," and tlio la* provided that tho amount or this drawback should be ascertained under regula tions prescribed by tne Secretary or iho Treasury. In March, 187i, tbe reaulailon so msdo fixed the draw beck on exportation ot rellncd sugars as follows:? Refined cry.talllno, three and three quarter cents per pound. By this term tbe department then Intended, snd the New York customs officers understood, hard or stove dried sugari only, but it wss soon found out by re finers that this expression would also cover tho lower grade of refined sugsr, known as "A" sort sn^ar, tbe proper drawback on which, under the law, a* ascer tained after a careful examinction of the "A" sugar by experts, was lound to ha threo cents s pound luster.d or tliruo and three-quarter oentf, and was fixed accord Ingly at three cents by regulatl mi In December, 187ft. This rste was so fixed beca tse, on a carelul examina tion or the sujtr, it wna found thnt thst rate would refund to the exporter tho aiiiom.t ol tsrtff that h? had paid out on the importod material uued in nuking such sugar. On December 1, 1876, just before this change, another New York Arm Inquired of tho depart mftit by tolegrapb wnetacr tho term ??refined crystal line ?.utpr" wss construed to apply to ??A," cvflee white sr.jv, ami wan on ti.e *?:?? dty laforti^d by tel egram tbat, "un'il a cn.>n|t ot rat*," thst term wo :.d be *?> construed, aid on Dccerti!?:r 3 th s flrin notided the department that ihcy ha I shipped IM barrels ol that sugar nnder thst telegram. Tie Collector at Ntw York immediately remonstrated thst tbroo and th.-ee issrlatt was too much, snd ths assMlnsilos, sr dowl at once, resulted id Axing tbe rate at three cenis. Mr. Charles \Y. liiirant's Urm, having in the meantime exported over 1,000,060 pounds of aolt "A" sugar, claimed, in November. 1*73. drawback at tbe rate of thn _? and three-quarter cents per ;>ouud, not icause the doty paid ?a iho Importoi material used ?at sugar amounted to tbreo and throe-quurter cents or becaurie the |,w pr?v,ded r>r tb. return of *n,OUDt< ??"> because, under the language "refined i r_. siallim sn^ar,' nwd to me then regulation iorcarry mg out tbo law.

This demand was uot complied wnh, .ho Secretary c?n.,denng his dutv under tbo law of more im|>ortance than following the former re-uiatiou, sunply because u had be-,, onoe ap proved by him. Mr. Durant argued ibat thia resula. !

ACTION OF THE OHIO DEMOCRATIC CONVEN TION THTJRMAN 8 candidature THOUGHT TO BE AT AN END?8AT1BEACTION OF THE FRIENDS OF OTHER A8PIKANTH. A despatch from Cincinnati, *aylng that tho Ohio delegation was Instructed for Allen on a greenback plutlorm. by aso to JlOO, causes utter despondency nmong tho Irieuds of Senator Thuru.an, who is now regarded as entirely out of tho race for tho nomin anon at St. Louis. The frlonds of Hendricks are cor respondingly dated. I-ATKR.?Tho action of tho Convention to-day Jur nlshes food for comment everywhere about tho city j tonight. The opinion Is unummous that Senator Thurnian has been slaughtered by his uncle, but the friends or every other candidate take this result as helpiug tho chances of their favorite. A little while ago the Hendricks men wero very happy, but now the Tilden men and tho friends of Hancock claim the St. Lou.s nomination as a lerogono conclusion. Tho Btytrd men nlono seom to sympathize with Thurman's ill lortnuo and to lot manors pursue tho even tenor or their way. THE BELKNAP IMPEACHMENT?IMPBESSION OF SENATORS AND OTHERS ON THE QUESTION OF jurisdiction?THE COURSE OF PROCEEDINGS FOLLOWING A DECISION. Several Senators wero heard to-day discussing openly the question whether they should vote In ravor of boldmg jurisdiction or tho Bolknap Impeachment. One thought a voto would bo reached tomorrow while another fixed on Monday next as the day on which it would be decided. Managers Lord and Lynde wero confident that the Senate would find affirmatively, and tbe former stated that it would be so carried by a two third vote, and that a corresponding condition of ?entiment bad already been reached. Senator Steven aon, of Kentucky, does not think the result will ahow so strong a vote. After the decision, If favorable, ta arrived at, Man ager Lynde is to open the case for the managers. The counsel for ex-Secretary Bolknap will plead to the merits, after which the managers will reply, and it is thought that at least two weoks will be consumed be fore tbe trial is under way, and that It will last at lea.,t thirty days longer then. General Belknap feels sorely tbe severity with which Manager Hoar arraigned him, and tbe great surprise Is that tbe former should have been present in the Senato Chamber to henr it It is bel oved that ex-Attorney General Black, of counsel, will not take much part in the conduct of the case.
