Defense—True, the cheek an 1 endorsements are genuine*, and that I had not funds at the bank when the chock was presented; but, you gave no notice of refusal before c jmmeneing suit; you delayed unrea sonably in making demand of bank. Reply—I mailed you notice before the writ was made and on the day of its date, for caution’s sake; but it was a useless ceremony.

Burleigh, member of Congress from this district, is in town, Yesterday was a good day for visitors. The Preble and the United Slates wer3 both crowd ed to overflowing. A letter from Boston was recently received at the police office, asking for the arrest of one Marr, who is described as wearing good clothes and as having stolen a bottle of whiskey and various other articles from the writer of the letter.

Yesterday morning the Mar shal, assisted by bis deputies, effected the ar rest on the arrival of the Austrian. Robertson Is a bold, bluff locking man, tell and dark whiskered, very self-p assessed,^and evidently well educated. He took his arrest very coolly, and was evidently not in the least surprised. Nothing was found on liis person nor in his baggage to substantiate any cliargo against him; so bo was discharged. His principal earthly possession seemed to be a case of very nice Honors, the contents of which lie offiered to dispense to the thirsty-lookffig crowd about him. He bad no money w ith him,but a money order from a distinguished Bangor divine, of whom lie is the nephew, was awaiting him at the postoffice. Robertson is a native of Bed fordshire, England, and is twenty-cigh t years old. A Card.—The young ladies of the M.

A Good Move in a Right Direction.— Wo are highly gratified to learn that tho First Baptise Society at its adjourned meeting on Monday evening, unanimously determined to abandon tho old plan of renting pews in its House of Worship, and to make the sittings free to all who choose to worship there. The step is a most important one in breaking down the barriers which have heretofore operated to tlie exclusion from tl e privileges of worship of many of our people who either cannot or will not hire pews; and we congratulate our Baptist friends upon tho groat advance they have made. We learn that the action of tho society was entirely unanimous and exceeding ly eutlihsiaslic, aud that several hundred dol lars were immediately subscribed towards the payment of the deficiency of the past year. We bid tbe society God speed in its new move ment for a free gospel.

But they amounted to nothing as the effort to establish the new line failed, and the matter has not since been talked about. Decoration Dav.—Tho General Committee of Bos worth Post’ G. A. E., held a meeting last evening, and took further action to secure the proper observance of the day. Sub com mittees were further appointed to look after the details, and the general plan discussed.

A suit has lately been brought in that Court to determine the construction of the late amend ment to the United States shipping act In its relation to American vessels bound to Havana, Mexico and similar ports. It appears to be the intention of the parties libelled to evade the operation of the act under the provision relat ing to coasticg vessels. Such a construction of "the act was, however, iu evident conflict with its spirit and Intention, and it was ac cordingly held that vessels bound on the voy ages named, were not within the intent of the amended clause, referring to coasters. Tlio de cision is one of a very important character and it will be of moment for those interested iu this class of shipping to inform themselves upon the construction thus judicially put upon the amended law.

They have gone—it is uncertain whore—but it is expected to hear soon of their whereabouts and destruction. Thursday night two troops of cavalry and seventy Warm Spring Indians, with three days’ rations, started on the east side of the lava teds, and Friday morning two more troops of cavalry left for a hunt of the Modoes. It;is believed to be impossible for the remainder of the Modoes, encumbered with women and children, to es cape. Four companies of infantry and two batteries of artillery are now guarding Capt. Jack’s stronghold, under Col. Mason. Gen. Gillem yesterday made a personal ex amination of Capt. Jack’s stronghold, which shows that without mortars and howitzers the Indians never could have been driven out. The soldiers found the body of an Indian and a squaw hidden in different parts of the rocks. Ashes were found, showing that the Modoc3 had burned their dead. A few Indians were sighted about four miles south yesterday, ou a bluff, hut no troops were scut after them. Au old Modoc squaw was captured yesterdny, who stated that one of the shells during the re cent attack fell near a council of Indians, and that One-eyed Jake picked it up and took it to nn.l .r.l.rvn it- nwnlo.l cd. killing all three. She stated that four oth ers were killed by musket kalis the same day, and their bodies found aud the traces of those burned showed that at least sixteen or seven teen Modocs were killed and an equal numbar wounded. The matter now is reduced to hunting the In dians in the rocks, and it will be some time be fore they arc all destroyed. Captain Hasfrouck’s light battery are on their way here. San Francisco, April 21.—A courier arrived at Yreka to-night with the following news from the front toApril 18th. Col. Perry, Lieut. Miller and 110 men left the camp at sunrise this morning on the scout southeastward. Nothing is to bo done in the" camp until they return, unless the Modocs make an attack, which is not probable. A part of the command will return to-morrow night, and a part will proceed to Willow Spring by the land route, aud determine whether the Modocs have fled that way. The Indians were seen in close proximity to the camp to-day. They camo for water. Shots were heard in tho southeast, evidently fired by Indians killing cattle. This afternoon the Indians were seen out herding horses four miles southeast of this point, aud au equal dis tance south of their former position. It is said there are huge caves and strong positions there, and they will make a stand at that point. The women and children are there, having been re moved before the massacre. There is a quanti ty of ammunition there, aud a supply of water. Fortifications will be thrown up at points com manding the lake shore to guard the water lino Eleven dead bodits aud one live Moaoc were found in a cave of the lava-beds to-day making sixteen warriors slain. The bodies of the dead were buried. Tho number of Indians wounded is unknown. Sume of the bodies were horribly mangled bv shells. Six soldiers and one civilian have been slain and eleven soldiers wounded, two severely, and four disabled by sprained ankles. It is report ed that two more of the wounded in the lava beds are to arrive to night. Sirs. Meacham was within three miles of this lava beds on the 17th, when she was turned back. Meacham is doing finely. Tho day Af ter to-morrow he will be taken to Ferris ranone, by boat to Lost river, and thence by ambulance to the ranclie. As soon as the cavalry return tho Modocs will be attacked if they remain where we think they now are. Capt. Egan is rapidly recovering. Young Hovey will be buried at Yreka this evening. He was scalpedl and disembowelled, and his head was massed with a flat rock Hannon, who fell within the Indian lines, was scalped. Headquarters, Lava Beds, April 20.— Nothing further has transpired, We are await ing the return of tho cavalry. Tho Warm Spring Indians are scouring the country east of the battle ground, aud are working toward tho craters, which are at the end of the high ledge of tho Modoc stronghold south. If tho Modocs have fled to this section wo will strike the trail and the troops will follow as soon as wo are no tified. The cavalry will return to night and we will then know whether the Modocs liavo fled to the south. The Warm Spring Indians and the cavalry will probably communicate with each other to-day. Col. Mason has moved his camp into Capt. .Tack’s cave. The lava bed presents a horried spectacle. Bodies are discovered in the crevi ces from under heaps of rocks, aud a sickening stench fills the air. Their must have becu many killed and wounded that we no nothing about, but we have evidence of the death of seventeen Modocs. There wounded must be at a greater rate than ours as the ground is literal ly covered with fragments of broken shells all over the place. Three shells fell in tl o mam ravine, in the centre of them, scattering the most of them. a ue women anu cniiarcn were removed be fore tbe massacre of the peace commissioner, and therefore a large portion of them are alive. There were about 220 men, women and child ren, sixtv of whom could light. , .If the Indians make a stand, this country will be in a homed state this summer. Tho ranchers will sell their cattle and be compelled to abandon their ranches. Fifty desperate sav ages roaming these rocky fastnesses will work in culciuable destruction to property, and cause a tearful loss of life, anil lay wasto the country, while the soldiers will be comparatively pow erless because they cannot hurt them, aud when they turn them they cannot venture out with out incurring great risk, not knowing what branch of sago bru-di conceals the foe. Tbe troops will not be idle. Tbe Moiloes will havo no chance to recruit their shattered forces. Extermination” is tbe word. The country in this section is in terrible excitement. All busi ness is suspended in a great measure. Wo are hourly expecting to hear of the massacre of de fenceless citizens living in the valley. Jf the Indians will make a stand togtuher inone place we will soon have the last oue, but if they scat ter into small bauds it will be next to impossi ble to get at them. 10 a. rn.—Firing commenced at the head of Long Cave, where the troops were attacked by Indians down to water. An escort coming to meet the pack train lias also beeu attacked, and tbe men have been ordered to fall in. Light battery 15 of the 6th artillery is on the way from the presidio to assist the cavalry, anil battery G of theflth artillery is also on tho way from Black Point, about a mile from thecainp. Tho firing is heavy aud steady. The escort is driv ing the Modocs. No further particulars can be obtained before the courier leaves. W. A. Hovey is on the way in with tho re mains of his son. A company of volunteers who started out from Yrcka a day before yes terday will return to-night. The settlers on Bogus ami Willow creeks are-much excited,and are preparing to move into.the town. It is re ported that three Indians were seen in the neighborhood of Bogus creek a few days since, and others were.seen down near the “picards.” Tho Klamoth river Indians supposed the Mo docs were at Crvstle creek in Scott’s valley. Tnc Klamoth river Indians were painted, aud were having war dances. They numbered 15 or 20 warriors, aud are well armed Whether there will be any danger or not the people aro arming. Col. Mendenhall's command has been orlcr oil to more by the way of Shasta valley instead of by the way of Pitt river route. ' Despatch from Oca. Gillcm San Fuancisco, April 22.—The following has been received here : Head Quarters Modoc Expedition, I April 22d. ) To Major General Scofield, San Francisco. The position of tho Modocs has not yet been discovered. I think the hand is near the mount ain in the southern part of the lava beds, about five miles south of their old stronghold. All of the cavalry, troops and the Warm Spring

Indians are out scouting for the trail of the Modocs. The bodies of 13 Modocs havtf been found on the field of their old stronghold. I have ordered two batteries to this place. It is more than probable that if the Modocs leave this vicinity they will go into the mountains to the south and southeast tswards Gose Lake and Pitt river. « (Signed,) A. C.

When Lieut. Howe’s train came near them, the Modocs attacked it but were again driven back. Lieut. Leary lost one mau killed and one wounded. The train arrived safely but was fired into when nearing tne Lava Beds and again ou its return. When returning of this side of the cave Lieut. Howe was again attacked by the Modocs, who followed him to tho camp, firing on the tram. They crept up to within 800 rods and fired at the pickets and sent a volley through the camp. Maj. Thomas sent a shell into their midst which scattered them. There were eleven in ihe attacking party. Arms were distributed to all in the camp, and| the Modocs soon lied among the rocks. The Warm Spring Indians will start to hunt tlie Modocs but they are scattered in small parties, and it w ill be difficult to follow them. The roads are not safe to Yreka.
