The treacherous and fiendish conduct of Capt, Jack ami his followers in murdering Gen. < ’anhy atidliis associates wlriiein friendly council, will not fail to awaken Intense iudig nation and an imperative demand for the con digit punishment of the Modoc?. Capt. Jac and his accomplices, in their shocking viola- , tion or the security that has always been rc- , spec ted by savage tribes as well as by civil.zed nations, havo made themselves the most odious of outlaws and as such they must be exterminated for the public good. The wrongs they have suffered or the cruelties lilLVfl Inflicted no longer enter into the consideration of the question. Doubtless in the intense indignation that this treacherous barbarity has evoked, thous ands will demand the general extermination of all the Indians, and those who have from the beginning been opposed to any other poli cy toward these unfortunate people than that of murdering them at sight, will he loud in their denunciation of any plan that does not look to an incessant and merciless warfare until the race is exterminated. Public journ als too will ridicule the humane experiment of President Grant and the “ration and palaver” policy will be subjected to the bitterest sar casm. The Modocs liave been regarded as un friendly to the whites since 1853. The first treaty with them was mule in 1864 and sub sequently twice modified before its ratifica tion in 1870. Capl. Jack leader of one band objected to the treaty most strenuously but - was finally induced to withdraw bis opposi tion. He settled on the reservation but a war soon followed with the Klamoths and the Modocs were removed to another part of the reservation. Here disturbances were renew ed and that part of the tribe under Capt. Jack has ever since been turbulent and dis satisfied. Last February in reply to an enquiry of Congress, the acting Indian Commissioner reported on the authority of the Oregon superintendent that the present defiant hos tility of the Modocs was in a “great measure due to the advice and influence of evil-dis posed persons living at or near Yreka, Cali fornia.” The commissary in charge confirm ed the statment that the Modocs were well armed and were encouraged by certain white men who profit by their trade. Captain Jack said, in November last, in reply to a re quest for a talk witn Mr. Odeneal, the Oregon superintendent, “Say to the superintendent that we do not want to see him or to talk with him. We do not want any white man to tell us what to do. Our friends and coun sellors are men in Yreka, California. They tell us to stay where we are, and wc intend to doit, and will not go upon the reservation. I am tired of being talked to, and am done with talking.” Mr. Odeneal gives a copy of a letter written by a prominent lawyer of Yre ka, showing his complicity, and says that a California State judge is implicated; he also gives it as his opinion that nine tenths of the trouble with the Indians “is brought about by meddlesome white men giving them im proper advice, and dealing illicitly with them,” In this case, as in many others, it appears that white men who have frequently been driven from society for their crimes and are in tent on gain at whatever cost, are partially responsible lor this shocking crime, is mere any reason why they should escape due pun ishment for that spirit which they fostered and which culminated iu the atrocious mur der of Gen. Canby and his associates ? If the white men, who gain by warfare and who in cite the Indians to their shocking deeds could be made an example of, it is very probable that there would be much less complaint of the outrages of Indians. Both branches of the city council, last evening, voted to make the salary of the May or $2500 for the present year. By a vote of the Aldermen, Mayor Wescott was placed at the head of two of the most important com mittees—Streets, Sidewalks and Bridges, and Drains and Sewers—with the understanding that be will devote his time beyond the usual duties of the office, to these important mat ters. There can be no question but what the money devoted to this increase will be a most economic expenditure. There is a general complaint that thous ands of dollars are lost, when hundreds, if applied in season, woull have done as well. The chairmanship of cither of these commit- ] tees is so great a draft upon a man's time that he must either neglect his own business or that of the city. It is too much to ask any man to do so much work without pay; con sequently nearly every member of the city council who has had experience in the city Jkvemment advised this course. The order for the increase was presented by Alderman Daveis of Ward 4, who was one of the most earnest, and intelligent advocates of this in crease of salary on the ground of economy— • view taken by all of the gentlemen in the city, of both parties, who have bad experience In the city council. This is the reason why a not nice young man was persuaded to pay twenty odd dol lars iu Winterport. He went one evening to see the daughter of an old gentleman who, for reasons best known to himself, ordered the young man to leave the house. Encour aged by the daughter who is evidently igno rant of the injunction and promise contained in the fifth commandment, the ill-bred fellow declined in words more emphatic than ele gant. With more spirit than muscle the old gentleman undertook to eject the persistent lover of his daughter from his house. A acuffle ensued In which the young man came off first best. Angered at the result, me old gentleman in a rage, left his domicile to tlie graceless lovers and took shelter in the house of a neighbor. Subse quently the fellow was taken before a iustice -ihe rooacco apologists fcavc , where they claim that the use'o'f * CaS® saved many lives and of course thel * Clgar ing the most of it. When the steamer Eha'c^" run upon the rock atThrogg's neck the other morning, the shock created a panic among the passengers, tendered more intense by the news of the terrible Atlantic catastrophe. The Captain comprehending the situation had presence of mind enough to thrust a cigar in to his month, take a newspaper in his '.hand and walk leisurely through the cabin, assuring the passengers rather by his manner than his words, that there was no danger and thus preventing a fearful scene. There is, however, a probability that it was the newspaper rather than the Havana that had the quieting effect. It is frequently said tfcst the papers are passing dull. General Canby • General Edward Rich Spngg Canby, whose lienerai . (I.e nth instant at the melancholy death on . . , .

Me entered Wesl Point Acade- ] my iu 1835 and graduated in 1839, standing .biriieth in class rank in a class of only thirty >ue. Among his classmates were the late Jcnorals Isaac I. Stevens and Hailcck, Gen ual E. O. C. Ord, who stood on the army egister just before him in rank as a brigadier jeueral, General Ricketts, and the rebel Gen iral Gilmer. lie was appointed a second licu ■enant of infantry July 1, 1839, and has been continuously in service ever since. He serv ed in the Florida war and afterword in Mexi' i tco, winning two brevets for gallant conduct, j He was commissioned captain in lSol an ‘ major in 1855. In 1857-60 he was with Gen- , eral Albert Sidney Johnston s Ila i j tion. Subsequently he was a33‘s”e‘ Nava_ frontier duty, being m comma i b Ui i jo expedition when the war of the lebell.on , broke out. In May, 1861, be was commis- , , , „nIoneJ. and placed in command of the ] S tent oi New Mexico, where he remain- , ed until March, 1862, when he was made a , brigadier-general of volunteers. He was then , transferred to the East, and was on special , iluty at various places, notably at New York luring the draft riots of the summer of 1863, until May, 1S64, when he was promoted to j« major-general of volunteers and sent to ;ake command of the division of West Missis :ippi. From th s time until the end of the var he was iu active service. He was severe y wounded by the rebel guerrillas in No rtmber, 1864. In September of that year he •eceived the thanks of the President “for the kill and harmony with which the recent op sratiwts in Mobile harbor, and against Fort I’owell, Fort Gaines and Fort Morgan were planned aud carried into execution,” and in May, 1865, the thanks of the President and the War department were a min presented to him for the success with which the plans to besiege and reduce Mobile were carried nut,. Having previously been brevetted brigadier and major-general in tbe regular army be was commissioned full brigadier-general July 28, I860. He bad the honor of receiving the sur render ot all the rebel forces in the southwest, ana after the war closed was placed iu com mand ot the department of Washington. In September, 1867, he was assigned to the com mand of the second military district, compris ing the States of North and South Carolina, where he rendered efficient service in carrying out the reconstruction policy of Congress. His last command was the department of the Columbia, with headquarters at Portland, Oregon. __ The New York Times has prepared very full statistics of the losses of the various ocean steamship lines which are very valuable at this time. The Cunard line in its nearly thirty-three years of cx'stence has carried nearly or quite a million passengers, and has lost none by accident. The Williams and Guion line has carried a quarter of a million passengers since 1866, and has lost only six of them,—they having been drowned by jumping overboard after a collision. The Anchor line has lost 250 lives, by the loss of three steamers, out of a total of 150,770 pas sengers carried, since 1865 when the line was established. The National line has carried 271.000 passengers since 1866, and has lost no lives nor vessels. The Havre line, which was established in 1854, has carried 123,200 pas sengers. and has lost no lives nor vessels. The Inman line lost 177 lives on the City of Boston, but has not suffered by any other disaster; the line began running in 1864 and has carried 787,000 passengers. The Ham burg line has had no casualties involving loss of life, and has carried safely 181,650 passen gers since 1855. The North German Lloyds line has carried 482,000 passengers since 1858, aud has lost none. The Baltic Lloyds line has lost none out of the 12,445 passengers car ried since 1871. The White Star line has car ried 61,900 passengers in two years, and has lost 546 in the terrible wreck of the Atlantic. The figures united show that of more than 3.320.000 passengers carried between Europe and New York by existing steamship lines only 979 have lost their lives by collision, shipwreck or foundering at sea,—or almost exactly one in 3400, The New York World of Sunday pro nounces tbe recent report that Governor Hendricks was discussing with prominent politicians in Washington the abandonment of the democratic party and founding a new organization a “weak invention of the ene my,” supported by no evidence, and in a col umn article declares its emphatic opposition to any such expedient. It says:— “There is nothing more politic than straightforward, open dealing. The three millions of Democrats would he neither better nor worse by a change of name. If tbe whole body ot southern whites and northern Demo crats are to be politically os,racized, let a new party get ou without their votes. But if their votes an* wanted they will claim their rights iu caucus and convention.” Concerning new parties, the New York attempting to make one, 6ays: Starling great political parties is an entirely harmless amusement; particularly so in an off year in politics. It is frequently done in newspaper offices. It occupies the time of the inventor, fills space in the paper, and is not devoid of entertainment for the reader. But it has been remarked by philosophic ob servers that the invention scarce ever passes beyond the stage of type aud ink, and that in the rare cases when it enters upon what may be called the experimental period, something almost always happens to it early, and it goes off untimely. A great many parties have been invented; only two or three have strug gled with existence and achieved history. Portland and the Northwest. SPEECH OP HON. ISRAEL WASHBURN, JK., AX MINNEAPOLIS. We published last week a telegraphic ab stract of Collector Washburn’s address to the Minneapolis Board of Trade on the 7th in Btant. We have since received the Minne apolis Tribune, from which we take the fol lowing report of the speech : When the sweling population of the West gets three hundred miles from a great city, it begins to gather, by irresistible gravitation, around another great centre to develope into another emporium. Now here is a country in this vast Northwestern region, extending I somewhere from the 44th to the 49th parallel of North latitude—and beyond this still farther to the North a large and fertile portion of Canada, including Manitoba and the Win nepeg region, and the valleys of the Assini boin and Sascatchewan valleys running west ward to the Rocky Mountains. This great empire must have'its outlet, and its greatjeom inereial capital must be in the United States somewhere. And as the country which is to sustain and feed it is large and produc tive, the city that conducts the traffic will in evitably be large and wealthy. Within this territory there is now a large and vigorous population, of a million and a quarter, grow ing so rapidly that it will be pretty certain to number three millions by the next census, eight or ten millions hy 1900 and by 1890 it will have somewhere a city larger than Chicago is to-day. It is inevitable. [Applause.] You remember that Mr. Seward said, that in his opinion one of the greatest cities on this continent would he here in Minnesota. Col. Benton once said there would be three great cities in the Mississippi valley, one ui. i\cw v/rifans, one at St. Louis, and one at St. Anthony’s Falls. If you go too far west for the location of the great city of this belt you lose the control o. the great country between that and the lakesf Moreover, it must, I think, be on the Missis sippi river. It cannot be at Duluth, for that s too far one side. You might ias well expect to have a New York at Eastpon, Maine, as to build this great West ern hive of industry and wealth within a stone’s throw of Hritish Ameiiea, and the bleakest part, at that. Minneapolis may be that city, and it may bo at some other point. It must, I think, be in this vicinity.. It may be at St. Paul. I do not know all the ele ments and factors of the question sufficiently to be able to decide where this great city will be; but I think It cannot be far from here. And this country, too, must have its own peculiar system of communication with the Atlantic—-its own proper, direct, cheap lines, working in its interest, and always seeking and advantage. It can no which&nntd !° be dePendent upon the lines the latt^citv'e. ?rcated for* Chicago, than Cincinnati. 5 be uP°n those belonging to allegiance to ann,?' outside lines owe an neither wisely n.

I think so. If ou will look upon the map you will see '’here it is, and the map shall be jour spokes uan, and the most convincing and eloquent hat you can have, because the most true and merring. . , _ . Looking upon a map of the United Sto es md Canada, you will sec how 8r“ ’ and sens have opened to give J <> o the ocean_that a line of road intersecting [he Northern Pacific, and perhaps becoming a roav be constructed lrom this point st. Mary, and continued thence ° oaawa anil Montreal, the political and ■ommcrcial capitals of the Dominion of Can [da, extending from either in almost a direct ine through the Notch of the White Moun ains, to the finest harbor in America, at the tty of Portland—a harbor deep enough for he largest ships, and so near the ocean that it 5 never blocked by ico even when those of loston, New York und Baltimore are closed— he nearest of all to Liverpool, and the one of 11 at which transhipments are made at the mallest expense and the most rapidly. By existing lines, as I find by consulting a ailway manual, the distance from Minncapo is to New York by the shortest line south of he lakes is 1,381 miles, to Boston 1,438, to ’ortland 1,510. By the Sault St. Mary lino he distance to New York will be 1,360 miles, >r a gain of 21 miles; to Boston 1,320 miles, ira gain of 118 miles; to Portland 1,260 niles, oi a gain of 286 miles, over any line low in operation—and nearly as great over tny that can be built hereafter. The distance to Montreal will be 1,000 niles, and there in the summer your products will naturally go, so far as they seek ship nent to foreign countries. The shortest line aow in operation to New Yoik, where sea go ing ships arrive, is 1,381 miles ; it will bo only 1,000 miles to Montreal—a saving of two lays’ rail carriage—and 1,260 miles to Port land in winter, or a saving of 121 miles. Suppose you had to day this railroad I have described to you, your growth would he in credibly quickened and augmented, for it would shorten the d stanee of all this country from the great markets of the world. You will have it. You will have it within five, years of this time. [Applause.] Sir Hugh Allan said to me in Montreal less than a year ago that he intended to have this line finished through to the Sault St. Mary, within three years; but I give him some margin and say five years. Ily that time you w 11 be entirely independent of Chicago, and I predict that passenger trains, with all modern improve ments, will then make the trip between Min neapolis and the East, reaching Montreal in 3G hours, Portland in 45 hours and Boston in 48 hours. [Applause.] There will be Pull man palace cars all the way, and at the wharves of Montreal in summer and Portland in winter you will find Tunning in connection with the road, a line of the best steamships that cross the sea. So you will become the western terminus of a grand independent system of railroad and steamship connection with Europe, running in vour interest, and devoted to your progress. The practical question is, how are all these excellent things to be accomplished ? Well, let us see. In the first place, there is the great Northern Pacific trunk railroad now being built from Duluth to the Pacific. This road will need ail the outlets eastward that it can get. It will demand the shortest lino across the globe to Europe and Asia. There is another consideration that will aid the present project. The old Grand Trunk system of Canadian railroads formerly had for their eastern agent, the Montreal Steamship Company for ocean fransit. The company is composed of Sir Hugh Allan and four brothers, who are the largest ship-owners in Great Britain. It is said they own something like one fortieth of the commercial marine of the realm. They arc immensely wealthy and strong. These steamers ran in connection with the Grand Trunk road, nine steamers of 4,000 tons each—the best steamers that cross the ocean. They are so staunch and sea-worthy that passengers who are ac quainted with the line go from New York and all parts of the East to take pas sage on them. The company is building more constantly—adding one or two ships every year. This line of steamships has furnished the outlet of the GraDd Trunk system of roads. But recently there has been some dis agreement between the Grand Trunk road and this steamship company, in consequence of which the Grand Trunk road has brought on a new line of its own, known as the Do minion line, large and spacious steamships. These, together with the Allan line of ships, and another line, ran to Portland this winter. They are all fed by the Grand Trunk road, and it is found impossible to furnish all the freight they require. So Sir Hugh Allan has set about the great work of establishing a line of railroad of his own—a trans-continental railway to feed the ships. It is one of the grandest and most compre hensive schemes ever known in this country. A railroad is now being constructed to Otta wa, and i3 to he extended from Ottawa to To ronto. and thence is to be connected with Chicago independently of the Grand Trunk. So that there will be two lines from Chicago to the Atlantic seaboard through the Domin ion territory. This is to be supplemented with the Canada Pacific; a road chartered with abundant sub sidy. It was to run according to the charter, around the north shore of Lake Superior and make connection with Fort Garry across the mountainous and desolate country around Lake Neepigon. A year ago two companies were chartered, which received a magnificent land grant to build the road, but it is now tacitly agreed on all hands that there will not be any road north of Superior. On account of a failure to agree with the old companies the gov. lament, by authority of the legisla ture, chartered a new company to build this road. The new Canada company has thirty millions of Canada capital and fifty million acres of land, and will proceed at once to build the line from Ottawa to the Sault St. Maiy. Thence a road will be built to a junc tion with the Northern Pacific at or below Duluth, completing the connection with Man itoba. Sir Hugh Allan made a speech last fall in which he stated that the road would be built immediately to the Sault St. Mary, and from there would connect through Wisconsin and Minnesota with the Northern Pacific, by the united efforts of the Canada Pacific and the Northern Pacific companies. When this great work is completed, you will see whether it will be for your interest to build or assist in building the road that is certain to exist to connect Minnesota and Dakota with the line that runs almost due east to the Atlantic. It seems absolutely cer tain that your trade to and from the sea will pass north of Lakes Michigan and Huron, via Ottawa. Everything postulates and enforces it. [Applause]. Portland is the winter harbor of Montreal, 260 miles distant. There is a new line of road running from Portland straight to Ogdens burg, in which Sir Hugh takes a deep interest. The line is now being built. In winter, when the outlet to the sea is closed to Montreal, the freight will go thence by rail and find the steamships at Portland. This new line from Ogdensburg to Portland, makes the shortest possible outlet to the sea from Minnesota. You are to have the shortest and the cheapest route to reach European markets, and the highest prosperity for Minnesota will not be reached till that is attained. Then your flour will go East the cheapest way, to supply those people who live by fishing, by ship-building, by manufacturing mostly, and bring back to you their wares, and your importations from Europe, Minneapolis will become a port of entry ; imports will come here without break ing bulk, and the duties will be paid here. We find it impossible to estimate the impor tance of this grand scheme. But we know enough about it to know that in Minnesota will grow up within the next twenty years a city as large or larger than Chicago is to-day. [Applause], Farm Products. From the statistics published in the census reports, we gatner the following interesting hg ures relative to farming and farm products in the United States: Acres in farms in the United States .188,021,099 Ditto in woodland.151)310,177 Ditto other unimproved.. 5o’503,’7fi5 Whole number of acres in farm.40t7t36^041 An abstract of the princ ipal crops gives the following result in bushels: W heat. 9A7 7jii nod Eye, Barley and Buckwheat.!'56.501,821 1,387,299,153 The amount of farm wages paid during the year (1870), including the value of board, was §310,280,285.

The estimated cash value of farms is S9.2G2, 808,861, and of farm productions, implements and live stock §4,309,693,543. Less than one half of tho area of inclosed farms is under cultivation, and less in tho whole than one-tenth of the national territory. Of tho total vast product hero exhibited, the proportion of nearly tliree-fourths is raised in that most fatal part of tho Globe, the Mississip pi Valiev. THE MODOC MASSACRE. Gru. Cnnbr murdered by Capt. Jack— I»r. Thomas killed uud lUeachnm mor ally wounded—Full account of the treacherous outrage—Gen. Mkcrmnn or iters tho extermination of the Jloiloc*. Lava Bed Camp, April 11, via Yreka, April 12.—Thursday afternoon fivo Indians and four iquaws came iuto pur camp and were present 'd with clothing and provisions by the peace :ommissioners. A message was sent out by the commissioners asking for a talk this morn ing at a point about a - mile from our picket line. Later in tho evening Bogus Charley came in and told the picket that he could take his ?nn; that he (Charley) did not intend to go back any more. The picket brought him in to the tent of General Canby, where Charley left bis gun and remained at the tent of FrankRid dle during the night. This morning Boston Charlie came in and told the commission that Captain Jack and five other Indians would meet tho commission outside our hues. Boston Charlio and Bogus Charlie then mounted a horse and started for the lava beds. Between ten and eleven o’clock this morning the peace commission party, comprising Gen eral Canby, A. B. Meacham, Dr. Thomas, Mr. Dyer, Biddle, the interpreter and squaw, Bogus Charley and Bjston Charlie, went out to tho designated spot. There they met Capt. Jack, Joliu Sclioncliin, Black Jim, Shack-Nasty Jim, Elien’s man, and Hawker Jim. They had no guns with them, but each carried a pistol at his belt. This, however, was not much noticed, as in previous interviews they had their guns with them. They sat down in a kind of a brok en circle, and General Canby, Mr. Meacham and Dr. Thomas sat together, faced by Capt. Jack rnd Schonchin. Mr. Dyer stood by Jack, holding his horse,with Hawker Jim and Shack Nasty Jim to his left. Tho place was over looked by the signal station, from which Lieu tenant Adams closely watched the proceedings, About half an hour after the party arrived a cry from the signal station was heard, saying that the Indians had attacked the peace com mission, and that an engagement had com menced between the Indiaus and Col. Mason. In a moment the troops were under arms and deployed as skirmishers under the command of Colonel Green, and orders were given to go for ward at double quick time. Very shortly after Mr. Dyer returned and told us that the Indians hau attacked them, and that he thought he was the only one who had escaped, hut iu a few moments after Riddle and his squaw were seen within the picket line. It appears that at tho fatal conference Mr. Meacham made a short speech to the Indians and was followed by General Canby and Dr. Thomas. Then Capt. Jack made a speech ask ing for Hot Creek and Cottonwood, now occu pied by Fairchild aud Dorris, for a reservation. Meacham told Jack that it was not possible to give him what he asked. Schonchin told Mea cham to say no more; that ho (Meacham) had said enough on that subjeet. While Scohnchin was speaking Capt. Jack stepped to the rear and stood near where Meacnam’s horse was hitched. Presently Mr. Dyer heard a cap miss fire and looking around saw Capt. Jack to h!s left with his pistol pointed at Gen. Canby. This was the signal for a general massacre, at d a dozen shots were fired inside of half a minute. Mr. Dyer after hearing the cap miss fire turned and tied, followed .closely by Hawk er Jim, who fired two shots after hint. Dyer finding Hawker Jim gaining on him, turned and drew his Derriuger, whereupon Hawker Jim retreated, and Dyer made the best of his way to the camp. Captain Jack fired again on General Canby, who ran off to the left, but ho was speedily shot down and killed instantly. Meacham was shot at by Schonchin and wouuded in the head. He tried to draw his Derringer, when two Indians ran up and knock ed him down. Dr. Thomas was killed almost instantly by two pistol shots iu the head, fired by Boston Charley and another Indian. Rid dle’s squaw was knocked off her horse by an Indian, who took the animal, but was forced to return it by Captain Jack. Riddle, it is said was chased aud shot at, but another account says he was not fired upon. The Attack on Colonel Hinson’s Camp and Advance of the Troops. New York, April 13.—A special despatch to the Herald says that as soon as the firing was heard, the drums and bugles sounded the as sembly and the skirmish lines with Miller’s and Throckmorton’s batteries supported by Egan’s and Wright’s companies of the twelfth Iufau try. The scene of the massacre was quickly reached. As the advance came up, three of the murderers were seen running around the edge of the lake on their way back to their strong hold. About a hundred yards to the west of the place of meeting was found Mr. Meacham, badly wounded with a pistol shot over the left eye. He was immediately attended to and car ried back for medical treatment. Fifty yards further on was the dead body of the Rev. Dr. Thomas, lying on his face aud stripped to the waist. The body of General Canby was strip ped of every vestige of clothing, and'lay about one hundred yards to the southward with two pistol-shot wounds in tho head. Pausing only a moment the troops dashed on aud the two leading batteries were within a mile of the murderers when tile bugle sounded a halt. It was found that all the Indians had got back to their stronghold and the troops were ordered to fall back. Active operations will commence to-morrow or the day after. Tho attack on Col. Mason’s camp commenced by the Indians firing ou Lieutenants Boyle and Sherwood, who had wandered some five hundred yards outside of their picket lines. Lieutenant Sherwood was riiou rurougu me ami aim lug, uni i.M'uu'uaiil Boyle escaped unhurt. Both the officers got safely hack to camp. In justice to Riddle, the interpreter, and liis squaw, it should be stated that they both warn ed the peace commissioners and Gen. Canby not to trust implicitly in tho Indians, and ad ded: “If they will go, I wash my hands of all blame in the matter.’’ The murder of General Canby has thrown a gloom over this camp and created a feeling in the hearts of the men that will exact a bitter reckoning from the treacherous savages. Mr. Meacham is still in a dangerous condi • tion, suffering from a flesh wound’ in the right fore-arm and a pistol shot entering behind the right ear and escaping three inches above. He also has an incised wound on the head, where the Indians tried to scalp him. The Herald has a special from the camp near the lava beds, dated early Sunday morn ing, up to which time there had been no tight. Tbc Effect of the Sown at Washington. The murder of General Canby and the mem bers of the peace commission, has been the sub ject of excited conversation everywhere through out the day. It was a number of hours after the appearance of the morning papers before official information came. In the meantime the officers of the War department and head quarters of the army were in great suspense, and fiually began to hope that the report might prove untrue; but before noon full despatches from General Schofield and from the military post in Oregon confirmed the worst The inte rior department has had no advices. General Sherman immediately telegraphed an order through General Schofield to attack the Modoes and to capture or exterminate them. An order announcing the death of General Canby has also been given to the press by General Sher man. Tho feeling in all official circles is in tense, and more so from the iact that General Canby was well known here, and aside from the deference awarded to his rauk he was cor dially esteemed and respected by all who knew him. At a meeting held on Saturday evening General Howard reviewed the Apache troub les and said that those now making trouble were not of the bands he invited from the lat ter tribes to visit the East. He was daily re ceiving letters telling him how much they lov ed him. He thought the Pimos and Papagoes tribes should be admitted to citizenship; and that conversion and regeneration were the true agencies to solve the In ian problem. For General Canby he had great respeot, and no one was more saddened by his death. He hop ed the act of treachery, which could not be too severely denounced, would be properly punish ed. Commissioner Smith said that notwith standing the great calamity there was no reason why a Christian policy should not prevail. He had no word in extenuation of the Modoes’ treachery, hut still, if the government had kept faith with them in regard to tho reservation and money which they were to receivo annual ly under the treaty, this trouble might have been avoided. Frederick Douglass argued that there was no hope for the Indian outside of the pale of the government. In his opinion all might be converted; and unless they were made citizens, all would be exterminated. To his mind the great remedy for the existing Indian troubles was to extend citizenship to them.

The Western farmers have taken the matter of “moving the crops” into their own hands. California theatre audiences have set a pat tern which deserves to be imitated elsewhere. They call out the scenic artist and give him the credit which usually falls to others. Two prominent citizens of New Orleans fought a duel on Monday last with rifles. One of them was wounded in the hip. They had sea se enough not to reveal their names. Mr. Marshall O. Roberts has been in Rome buying artistic works, and has created much astonishment in the studios, where his purchas

es amount to over S70.000. Queen Victoria recently sent three pounds to the wife of a private in an English regiment, the understanding being that there was one pound for each baby. A youth of eighteen and a maiden of four teen eloped from a town in Chautauqua coun ty, N. Y., last week, and were married at mid night During tho past week there were in New York city G18 deaths, 405 births, 35 still births and 118 marriages. Five imndred and eighteen deaths per week are something above the aver age for April. An exchange illustrates the beauties of the postal card system thus: Smith to his landlady —“Any letter for mo to-day!” Landlady— “Nothing but a few postal «», but there is nothing of importance In them.” A western paper says Wirt Sikes, the silent partner of Olive Logan, was onco a poor printer boy, but by genius, industry and tact he be came the husband of a woman who can earn $200 a night, lecturing. Corvallis, Oregon, is excited over a torpedo hug, who has blown up a dancing party and hoisted a Cheap John and his street platform about ten feet in the air. The good Corvallis people never go to bed now without applying lighted candles to all the rat-holes. The pistol as a playthiug for pretty prattlers in the nursery has caused another surgical case in Trenton, O., where a little boy, aged eleven shot his cousin, aged six, with whom ho was “playing robber,” with a navy revolver con siderately left where the children could amuse themselves with it. Kdmnnd Yates, when asked what materials he wanted to write the account of the inaugu ration for the Herald, replied “nothieg hut braDdy and water and a few facts.” This re mark excited an audible smile among the other Herald writers, inasmuch as they rarely have occasion to use the last two ingredients. It is said that when Bismarck saw his son dis appear where tho battle of Gravelotto was fiercest, he left the royal party and went into a tent to hide his expression of grief. Unfortu nately the tent was too small, and it is implied that the grave Premier’s legs stuck out to ludi crously evince by their action the emotion of their possessor. A young man entered a Jersey city gun shop I aud asked to he shown a revolver. One was given him, and in handling it he managed to slyly slip in a cartridge, and then, placing the barrel to his breast, he fired and fell, seriously wounded. The shop keeper thinks it was a little mean in the young man to “sponge” the use of his revolver for such a purpose. STATE NEWS, ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY.

At Xhi.M Very Hour Thousands are suffering fever and ague, or languish ing in that condition oi debility which the variable weather of the season is apt to produce, especially if the nervous system be particularly sensiUve and the physique delicate rather than robust. All these suf ferers, however much they may deserve sympathy, are nevertheless the victims of their own want of forecast. A course of Hostetler’s Stomach Bitters, commenced a month ago, would have exempted them from their present troubles. Having neglected prevention, let them at once adopt the means of cure. A wineglassful of that geni d vegatable tonic aad alterative twice or thrice a day, for a week or two will afford eftectual relief in any case of intermittent or remittent fever, chronic indigestion, constipation, biliousness or nervous weakness, and a pirseverence in the use of the restorative will prevent the possibil tp of a relapse.
