A noticeable feature of the military reports submitted to the Secretary of War by General Grant at the beginning ot the present session of Congress, is the uniform reference to In dian hostilities from Minnesota to California. Gen. Halleck is especially emphatic upon this point, insisting that “hostilities will not en tirely cease till these Indians are killed or captured.” Gen. Pope writes, “I do not con sider the treaties lately made with the Sioux, Cheyennes, Arapahoes, Kio». as and Caman ches worth the paper they are written on, for reasons which I have given so often that you must be sick of bearing them.” Gen. Sher man proposes to lestrict the Sioux north of the Platte, west of the Missouri river and east of the new road to Montana, and the Chey ennes, Arapahoes, Ac., south of the Arkansas and east of Fort Union, leaving for the use of the whites the broad belt between the Platte and the Arkansas in which lie the two great railroads and over which passes the bulk ol' travel to the mountain Territories. Finally, General Grant suggests the propriety of tranr fciring the Indian buieau from the Interior to the War Department, believing that “it would result in greater economy of expendi ture and diminution of conflict between the Indian and white races.” The recent massacre of troops near Fort Kearney, within the tract from which Gen. Sherman proposes to exclude the Indians, haa served to call public attention still more point edly to these perpetual troubles. Neverthe less that horrible atlair was only a striking manifestation of the habitual state of tilings on the border. Wherever our pioneers come iu contact with the aborigines there is perpet ual hostility. As the land they occupy is wanted by settlers, the Indian claim is bought up by the government for annuities of money and merchandise. The payment of these an nuities furnishes rn opportunity lor the Indian traders, who in partnership with the land speculators, and not unfrequently with the government agents themselves, conti ive to se cure the greater part of the bounty for them selves. The Indians, worse olf than ever, un dertake a little robbery on tbeir own account, though of course they manage it lessskillfully than their white brethren. Then comes an Indian war, ending in a treaty, with a general largess of money and merchandise, which the unreflecting savage regards as a reward of merit, secretly determ iping to have another war at the first convenient opportunity. To say that tuis is all wrong, is ridiculously mild. Gen. Pope reported last August that the Utes were suffering for food; that their hereditary enemies, the Camanches and Chey eunes, had shut them up in the mountaius where they found no game; that the Indian bureau bad reluserl to provide them with food; in a word, that no resource was left them but to prey upon the herds and flocks of the near est settlements, or starve. The Cheyennes are the people upon whom Col. Chivingtou and his men committed their horrid outrages about two years ago. The Congiessional Committee on the Conduct of the War re port that Chivington’s men “deliberately mur dered" a hundred uuresisting Cheyennes of a friendly band, men, women and clrildien, under circumstances of “revolting barbarity, such as, it is to be hoped, never before dis graced the acts of men claiming to be civiliz ed.” Thp Sioux, who appear to be associated with the Cheyennes in the attack upon Col. Carrington’s ;command at Fort Kearney, are the tribe against whom the campaigns of 1803 and 1804 were conducted—campaigns which made a great figure in the newspapers at the time, but which really accomplished very lit tle. The Sioux number 10,000 or 20,000; the Cheyennes about 3,000. These wild children of the woods need to be treated as children. At the stage of devel opment which they have reached, they regard and respect nothing but power. They need to be controlled with steady firmness. Vio lence and laxity are alike out of place. They need to be protected from the landsharks who prey upon them. General Grant is right.— The Indian bureau should be transferred to the War Department. The officers of the ar my who are to restrain their violence ought also to be empowered to prevent it by remov ing as far as possible the provocations and oc casions of violence. The military comman ders, as a rule, are not so likely to be corrupted by the chances of peculation as the tempora ry appointees of the civil government. From every point of view it is evident, that the pro posed change should be made—for the better protection of our own people, out of regard to the Indians, nay, in order to secure our own self-respect by the substitution of a settled policy for the present pernicious makeshift. IMirabcau B. Lamar. We are ashamed to say that until recently we knew no more about tbis distinguished Soulhernor than about the Grand Lama ot Thibet,|or the Peruvian Llama—that is to say, merely his name. The Peruvian branch of the family is luminously desciibed in the new Webster as “an ungulate ruminating mammal, allied to the camel.” The Grand Lama is also a ruminating animal. Mirabeau B. Lamar (the B probably stands tor “Buonaparte”) may be compendiously described as a “bifurcate rum my-nating mammal, allied to the peacock,” as we gather from a short article from a “gifted” Southern pen, which we find in the last number of the New York Day-Book and condense for the benefit of the next New American Cyclopedia: Lamar, Mirabeau B.—I can never forget the first time I saw Lamar. I was a boy four teen years of age. He was an invited speaker, at the second “Nullification” meeting ever held in Georgia. The first had been held in Athens, at the seat, and during the commencement of the University, under tbe auspices of the late Aagustinc S. Clayton, then a member of Con gress from that State, under the general ticket system. Athefas was the home of Judge Clay ton, and the centre of literary and polite life in Georgia. George McDnffie, from South Caro lina was there. This second meeting, which really put the “ball in motion” Georgia, was held in Covington, Newton County, Ga. It was at that meeting and surrounded by such men, that Lamar pronounced one of the most fiery declamations which ever tell from the li ps of mortal man. Wild with zeal, he cried out— “But it is said that General Jackson has threat ened to send a million of muskct-bcaring uien across the Potomac. What then? Why, then, meet a million ofmuskct-liearing men, to make that beautiful river a river of blood. By Heav en, fellow-citizens^ I had rather sec Georgia rent from the continent by au earthquake, and tloatiug au iceberg, in the oceau, leafless and lifeless, than to see her submit to this uncon stitutional, unequal, unjust taxation! Nay, I had rather see her sunk into a lake of fire, sev en times hotter than man’s conception!" He ceased, and the multitude was wild with mad excitement. His appearauce was unique. His fine bust; his blue cloth surtout and Byron collar; his large, open, blue eye, and ample brow and sombre mieu, marked him as a mail of peculiar tastes, of melancholy mould, of vehement passions, touched with poetic aud gentle sentiments. He was an organized mass of human fire, and as he moved about the town, daring the evening, in silent meditaiation, saluting nobody, indulg ing in a cigar and the shaded promenade, all eyes went after him in wonder and curiosity. Wheu in after-life, he tied a bandanna hand kerchief over bis head and charged the Mexi can army, in Texas riding alone through its ranks, sword in hand, nobody who knew him was surprised. I remember an occasion when be was sick, in Columbus, Georgia; his old friend, Colquitt, went to see him. “How hard this is,” said he to C. ; “here I am, scorched to a cinder, with this fever; anybody but me could die, but I can’t die; I shall live.” With his subsequent career in Texas, as sol dier and statesman, the world is familiar. Everybody remembers his letter, demanding the lite of Santa Anna. “He has made,” said he, “the blood ot innocence the Falernian of his revels, and with his military lioot stamped upon the bTow of blue-eyed beauty.” A romarkble description ot a remarkable man. evidently. A mass of human fire seven times hotter than human conception, of course nobody is surprised at his fiery decla mations, or his solitary charge upon an army of Greasers—that is, nobody but the Greasers themselves. It is mildly surprising that the fever should have scorched him to a cinder; one would have said Lamar would have sing ed the fever. It Is a noteworthy peculiarity of this kind ot writing that the words may be inverted without slightest injury to the sense. Thus jt would be equally in telligible to say that Lamar’s blue cloth sur- 1 tout and Byron collar “marked him as a man of tasteful peculiarities, of mouldy melancholy, of passionate vehemence, touched with semi mcutal poetry and gentleness.” His mind, stored with.poetic images, has evidently be trayed him into a slight error, when in his I'a- ! mous dispatch (which we doti’t remember to | have heard of before) demanding tbe life ot Santa Anna, he speaks of the “blue-eyed beau- 1 ly”ot the llexican ladies. The Senoritas have dark eyes. Lamar had in mind that ex quisite but unquotable bit of old English poe sy,— “Blue eye, beau-ty; Black eye. pfck a pie; Gray eye, g.cedy — the rest belongs to the Elizabethan era. There is nothing in the whole range of Southern literature better than this about Lamars sui tout and Iiyron collar, except the passage in one of Mr. Nasby's recent letters, in which he speaks of Colonel Podgers, “a gentleman of the old skooi, who lives in lux urious elegance onto a plantashun uv 15t0 akers, and who has troo piety into him and al ius weurs a shirt frill.” Podger3 and Lamar belong to the same order of Southern gentili ity. Ppdger? was no doubt conspicuous in Nullification times, a9 well as Lamar, prefer ring to see Ids State exposed to unutterable vicissitudes, rather than to submit to this un equal, unjust, unlawftd, unauthorized, un warranted, unreasonable, unjustifiable taxa tion—a-a-a-h! Podgrrs as well as Lamar however did submit very quietly, when Jack sou took measures to make good Ids gallant declaration that the Union should be preserv ed. We have had to deal with these follows once again since Jackson's time, and once again they have submitted. l*t them beware of the third time. The Right* of Private Property. The bill granting additional powers to the Kennebec Manularturing Company came be fore the House of Representatives at Augusta last Friday, and passed to be engrossed by a vote of 69 to 0. The telegraph has already reported that Gen. Shepley voted and spoke against the bill. The following synopsis ofhis remarks will show that his opposition was based on a clear distinction in law, though perhaps many readers will believe with Co). Frye, of Lewiston, that he was “theoretically right but practically in error.” We copy trem the Kennebec Journal: Mr. Slieplcy, of Portland, remarked that he wished to call the attention of the House to this bill, which has thus far passed unchalleng ed, as it introduces a new feature in our legis lation and is the inauguration ot a new State policy, and one to which he was altogether opposed. Heretofore it has been Ibe policy of tlic Legislature to respect the rights of private property and to allow a compulsory process lor tbe purchase aud sale of real estate only in cases where such land is needed lor a public use. The right ot Eminent ltomafu is one carefully guarded by the Constitution, and only in the particular class of cases named has there been any authority given for a person or corporation to forcibly take and occupy lands. Those uses have been lor the laying out of roads and public highways, for railroads and canals so laropeu to the public as to allow any person to make use of them on the payment ot tolls. The proposition now is to give this right to a private corporation, to invade pri vate rights tor the erection oi mills. I'racti cally, me policy is this: If A. B. owns a small mill privilege aud bis wealthy neighbor needs, or thinks he needs, the bite tor a large cotton tactory, he goes to the Legislature and asks that he may have authority to take, by com pulsory means, the mill site, on the ground that he intends to build a larger mill which will be of more benefit to the community. That is, that a weak aDd poor man shall be compelled to sell liis property to a rich and powerful person or corporation, not tor public hut for private purposes, and not, as uiual, at a price agreed upon by the parties, but at a price determined by referees. To this princi ple he was opposed. He earnestly desired the prosperity oi Augusta and the success of the enterprise in which it is now engaged; but he could not vote to insure it by a sacrifice of in dividual rights. He did not think it necessary, even; and deemed it lar better that exorbitant demands should be complied with than that this dangerous principle should be admitted into our legislation. in n ply to Mr. Stevens, Mr. Shepley said he was sony the gentleman from Augusta couid not help regarding an opposition to a special feature of legislation asked tor as an attack on the system of manufactures. Because he couid not at once bring his mind to favor a new pol icy ol sacrificing me private rights of one man to the desires of another, that gentleman af fects to consider him an enemy to the maim faeluring interests. He brings up the spectre of Shepard Cary to frighten as. His zeal re minded the speaker of a scene in the U. S. Senate when alter a Senator from North Car olina, pathetically appealing to his colleagues not to pass a certain clause m the Kausas-Ne braska hill prohibiting tbe introduction of slaves, moaned out that be couid not take his poor old “Mammy' with him to Kansas, an other Senator, from Mew Hampshire, well known tor his dry humor, replied that his friends did not object to the Senator taking his old “Mammy'’ to Kansas, but they wanted to prevent him irom selling her after he had taken her there. So he did not object to the development of the water power,—he was in favor ot it,—but he did not wish that it should be developed by the corporation stealing pri vate property. He simply opposed what, he deemed a dangerous feature. It the gentle man from Augusta could convince him that it was a fair and equitable measure, be was will ing to be convinced. Hitherto it has been al lowed tor private corporations to take only such property as they could purchase at an agreed price. Mow it is proposed that this corporation shall be allowed to take it by force at a compulsory price. He spoke at some length on the question whether this is a pub lic use, contending that it was not, inasmuch as its benefits are not open to all. It is a pri vate corporation proposing to do certain things for its own private wealth, and it would be as reasonable to say that the erection ot a wool len mill was a public use of property as that the tailor who made the cloth into clothing was in public business, and as well grant to him authority to take a house for a shop, or a hotel keeper to take your dwelling house for an inn,as to grant such power to this company. He quoted irom the acts cited by Mr. Stev ens as evidence that this principle is not novel in Maine (legislation. The canal on Orson Island, which the Penobscot Lumber Asso ciation was authorized to construct was for the general use of all who had lumber to drive, and not for the private gam of a private corporation alone. The drainage law cited was a general one, and if Tom Suooks was obliged to let Mr. Smith build a dam across his land, be could drain through Mr. Smith's laud as well. In the case of the l’re-uiupsi ot Company, he wished to call the attention of the House to two facts. He admitted that by the terms of that charter the rights here ask ed were partially granted. II he had been a member of the Legislature which gave the charter he should have opposed thut feature as strongly as he did iliis. But it will be evi dent from a reading of tiie act that the insti gator of it was Francis O. J. Smith, he being the first named corporator; and it appeared in evidence last year before the Railroad Com mittee that though the Comuany had never been organized, Mr. Smith hud exercised, in its name, the powers therein granted. T he last section o( the act also shows that though the extraordinary power was granted it was carefully guarded. He read irom the charter to show this. This is not guarded at all. In that ease, too, the rights ot the property hold ers were only riparian rights under the old colonial ordinance. Here the owuers held the tee simple. The geutlen.au from Augusta qnotes Chief J ustiee Shaw to show that the Legislature bad the right to declare this a public use. He had ucver denied the right ot the Legislature to do so, but questioned the policy and the util ity. In the ease he has cited, the Lawrence dam was to improve the navigation of the Merimac river as well as to afford water power for manufacturing. In this ease the dam is built already. The necessity of this bill was also question ed. All our great manulacturing cities, Lew iston, Biddelord, and Saco have been built without it and he questioned whelhei there was any great demand lor this provision now In conclusion, Mr. Shepley vindicated him self from the charge of opposition to manu factures. lie had no defence to make but if gentlemen would look at the record of the Legislature of 1850 they would see to whose advocacy was due the existence of some im portant enterprises, and that the charge of op position to inanulaclures did not eouie wed trow the keuuebtc delegation orany mem ber of it.

The Touipcrnnrr Ki form. the Editor of the I’ress: Siii,—Will you permit me to express a few thoughts upon a subject which vitally atlects us all, ami see if any improvement can be made by a more united eli'ort for suppressing the vice of intemperance in this community. It is a fact that our best citizens dilfer (and honestly too) in the course to be pursued and the means to be used in accomplishing the greatest amount ot good. The older portion ol our t ili'.ens well remember the vast amount ot good that was accomplished by the Wash ingtonian Society, the love and good will to wards men that prevailed under the labors of that gloi ious and praiseworthy Society, and with wluit wonder and astouishmeut we be held its operations in reforming drunkards and closiug the dram shops of our city, and that too without the aid of Law. Well do we remember and sadly do we behold the great great change that has taken place since the law was resorted to. For about fifteen years have we been apply ing the law, and how have we succeeded '.* 1 ask you candidly, since the law has been ap plied, has not Intemperance been on the in crease? Uas not the past year been specially marked for intemperance, and have not pros ecutions been abundant? Was the law ever more vigorously enforced than it has been the past year? Who can say that our officers have not done their duty iu this respect ?— The fact is we are on the wrong track. We have abandoned those principles which the greatest reformer the world ever saw Institut ed for the reformation and salvation of men. He came proclaiming peace on earth and good will to men,and instituted that Golden Rule, “In all things whatsoever ye would that men should do unto you, do ye even so to them."— Is this principle, arc these doctrines, enter tained by our leading temperance men ol' the present day ? It must be a strange interpre tation of those doctrines which Christ insti tuted, to answer in the affirmative; hut nay, is it not. malice, envy, hatred, evil speaking, evil surmising*, slander and such like that rule the passions of leading temperance men of the present day ? Who are the most popular lecturers on the subject of Temperance at the present day ? Why, those who are the most successful in exciting the passion^ and use the strongest expressions, call the hardest names, and can make the most people laugh at their expressions. Such an one is the most popular lecturer and the one that is sought for and run alter by the multitude, while he who oilers sound kgir can hardly obtain a hearing. Ought these Hungs so to be. Let us then look into the matter, and candidly discuss it, and adopt the best course to accomplish the greatest amount of good. I think ior one that our Temperance men of the present day have got hold of the wrong end of the rope and are hauling in Intemperance instead of Temperance, it is certain that men -will im prove an opportunity to make money and so long as there is demand for intoxicating drinks, so long there will be a supply. If we want a check put upon this business we mutt stop the demand, and that is just what the Washingtonian Society did. They labored with the rum drinker instead of fighting the rum seller. They took away his customers, and he had to shut up shop. Why do not our rum sellers close their doors alter so many prosecutionsV It is because their profit is large and the temptation great. It was not so un der the Washingtonian Society’s operations.— Every one sold liquor who bad a miud to, and the competition that bad prevailed for years reduced the profits so low that there was little or nothing made at it, and the rum seller had as lief give it up as not. lint how is it now? Prosecutions have raised the profits on liquor so high that the rum seller will continue, al though he may be prosecuted every week. As law cannot accomplish the desired ob ject in our large towns and cities, why not abandon the law and try some other course t It is said moral suasion will not stop all the rum sellers from selling, and I say neither will the law. Moral suasion has accomplished more good in this city than the law has. For my part I do not kuow the first rum shop that the law has shut up, while I know of many that were closed under the influence ot the Washingtonian Society, and I lor one should like to see that Society revived, and all well-wishers to the cause of temperance united in the work of resit aining men from strong drink aud persuading them to aban don their cups by love and good will. Men will not be dri.eu in matters partaking of a moral or religious nature. A Wasuinutonian.
