THE PEESS. THURSDAY MORNING, APR. 24, 1878 liv ev 10 .'Ular attache of the Press is furnished irliu a card certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pullen, Editor. All railway, steamboat and la te managers will confer a favor upon us by demanding j ertsl n rials of every person claiming to represent onr four isl, as we have Information that several "bum men” aro seeking courtesies in the name of the Pi:ttss, an 1 wo have no disposition to be. even pa3 s velv, a party to such fraud. An Eye for an Eye. The advocates of hanging are still exercis ing themselves over the question of capital punishment as illustrated by the case ot the Modoes. They fail to see any diflerenco in the style of treatment which is essential in case of the Indians and that which should be given a murderer within the borders of civ ilization. The difficulty with these people lies in their conception of the proper motive and puifiosc of punishment. Upon their theory that punishment is for the purpose of revenge upon the criminal—that it should be essentially vindictive in its very nature, their «ODckt;<i.m that the cold blooded civilized murderer desertes as much punishment as the exasperated untaught Modoc is legiti mate Should they, however, ouce comprehend the idea that punishment is inflicted for the protection and advantage of society—for the good of the whole and not as the prosecu tion of a sort of vendetta upon the individual offender, they would find their conclusion ■raffish like the baseless fabric of a dream. The Modoes most be pursued and the lead ing warriors certainly exterminated because »ny otber connw would be unsafe. But any unnecessary arsr’ty or ferocity in this would •rouse insttyA .. ;iA universal deprecation from all our css*. r<M§in in whom humanity Is stronger SEne a savage thirst for Mood. Already the scalping and man gling of dead Indians, which are report ed in such ghastly detail from the seat of war, hare aroused sharp remonstrance in all di rections from those who detest brutal actions, whether committed by the Indians or whites, and who dislike to believe that the refining influences of civilization have made but a thin veneering erra j&vsgery. “Scratch a Rus sian and yr.sSl F: a Ta tar.” It would be de plorable in iiC i kar.i that one had only to scratch a Utisei States soldier and find n Mode*. We are or ought to ba better than they, fbr out opportunities have been better. But if they aro pursued in the same spirit of vwagsance, which some of our veneered Mo doss exhibit to war I civilized criminals, wc fear vre have not lica rd the last of the fiendish barbarities which already disfigure too many pages of our History. Evts for marines, the yarn of the New York Herald about the three Modocs and the shell that one of Gen. Gillem’s mortars placed in their midst, lacks very much of density. Black Jim's mother-in-law tells the •lory. “A shell fell near a group of Modocs and “One eyed Jake,” one ot the Shacknasty family ran and picked it up and took it over to John Schonchin and another Indian when they all tried to bite it. At this interesting Juncture the shell exploded and the three sav «gcs were hot interested in any further in vestigation of fuse projectiles. The Modocs are too smart to be beguiled into an attempt to make a dinner of mortar shells an d an ex change declares that “the Shacknasty family” is altogether too high toned to be capable of. this sort of a thing, though Black?Jim may be happy at the loss of his mother-in-law and will gladlv spare her to the Herald commis sioner as long as he is fascinated by her fables. The California papers state that Chinese cheap labor is a failure on the Pacific eoast and that manufacturers there are preparing to get rid of their Celestial employees. The very curious reason given by manufac turers for the failure of the almond-eyed wretch as an operative is simply that he is not a rcachine; so that, when' he learns to make shoes well, he will no longer make them for so much a day but begins to make them for himself and then sell them for him self at such low rates as to ruin his former •mployer. So long as John would make the same shoes for $1.25 a day the other laborers asked $2.50 for he was, in the estimation ' of the manufacturer, a success. Now that he has gone a step further iu pro ducing cheap shoes, thus driving the for mer employer out of the field, he is a failure. Thus it appears that the present idea of fail ure is based upon the proposition that the people are made for the manufacturer—a fact perhaps, hut not self evident to the major ity. _ The Postmaster General has made a very clear statement of the case of the Govern ment against the railway companies in the postal car dispute. He has caused a table to be made by which the charges of the com panies for first and second class freights are compared with the allowance for mail car riage under the new law. Iu the three rail roads given as examples, it is shown that the companies will be paid for the mail service $411,813 for a space and a service which be ing devoted to freight carriage would yield only $221,290.48, but for such they now de mand $025,388.48. From this it appears that the offer of the Government is sufficiently lib eral and that the companies have no cause foir complaint. Public opinion will not permit the authorities to submit to the demands so unreasonable and even outrageous as the rail roads make. If the corporations insist, this Is a fair and broad field upon which to test the question, whether the people have been created for the use of the railroads or the railroads for the people. The New York World, having become quite forgetful of the past twenty years, “ex ultingly dilates upon1’ the inextinguishable vitality “of the Democratic party, and in view of this kind of vitality very properly insists on maintaining the solidity of the organization. The World however, which speaks for the whol» Democratic nartv, nroposes to throw down all the images it has worshiped in the past and forget all the musty traditions it has handed down'and given the authority of in spiration and takes one single issue for tho future—free trade. That b to he the objec tive point in the next campaign—if it don't change its mind. The New York Tribune and the pig iron Pennsylvanian may object; but it is the Democratic Tribune that tis now the alarming rival ot the World; and what are a few pig-iron makers compared with the vast hosts of the farmers of the West who will rally to the free trade standard borne aloft by the World ? The Supreme Court of Massachusetts has recently decided that telegraph companies arc not responsible for error in transmittingmes sages unless the same are repeated in accord ance with the printed regulations of the com pany. Now the courts of Illinois in recent de cisions, hold that the telegraphs have no right to charge one price for doing the work at al* acdai extra price for doing it correctly. They hold that correctness is the very essence of the contract of the Telegraph Company and cannot legally be separated from it and charg ed as an extra accommodation. The Advertiser publishes TTetter from Senator Morrill in which he says ho doubts if Gen. Sherman is correctly reported when it is stated that he asserts that treachery is in herent in the Indian character; as in i8os_ Gen. Sherman signed a report of the Peace Commissioners asserting that the Indian “naturally has many noble qualities, is the embodiment of courage, and if sometimes cruel and revengeful, it is because he is out lawed. ’ sir. Morrill is convinced that expe rience has proved thattbe present policy to ward the Indians is the wisest and best. THE Maine Central Is again unfortunate in losing a part of its longest bridge, at Ken dall’s Mills. The somnambulistic Fitts boy v. bo is sup- j posod I h^t’imai’tour, » reported to have; assaulted several persons who were m the same room in which he is confined m j Exeter jail, N.H.,Sunday night.The four men 1 in the room were aroused by liis violence, j when they found him dressed and armed with ! a razor, and apparently in a frenzy. He was ! prevented by the timely waking of the men from fatally cutting one or more of them. ' When awakened, ho was greatly surprised ami burst into tears. The boy was in the room by the invitation of the other prisoners ' and hail found the razor which belonged to one of them. This unfortunate youth is evi- ! dently not a desirable companion. The Massachusetts Legislature has just 5 reached the most important measure of the session, which is no less a question than, “Shall the railroad line through the Iloosac i tunnel be run by the Commonwealth or by a strong corporation embracing in a consolidat ed company the various lines running in that direction?” A majority of the Railroad Committee have reported a hill consolidating the several lines and corporations under the name of the Boston and North-Western Railroad Company. A minority of the Com mittee will report a bill looking to the pur chase of the lines by the State for the purpose of running them, which is tho plan of Charles Francis Adams, Jr., one of the Rail road Commissioners. We have received several letters irom Stowe and Denmark relative to one of those scandals that too frequently disgrace neigh borhoods and religious societies, and which we would no sooner admit to our columns than an enraged tiger to our house. TnE State Prison was damaged about $5000 by fire early Tuesday night. . The Indian Policy. To the Editor of the Preas: There is probably no question of national policy on which there are more widely differ ent opinions than on the Indian policy. The cause of this may be found in the fact that while there are some 300,000 Indians scattered ovei our country, differing greatly in habits, customs, education and even physi cal formation, judgments are formed of the i ace, based upon acquaintance with some ! one of the numerous tribes. The injustice of this is seen when we re member that while there are tribes to-day who have a well organized common school system, w ith liberally educated Indians for teachers—tribes whose farms will compare favorably with those of the whites in the West, yet there are other tribes as wild and savage to-day as were the Pequots and the Oneidas in 1620. An Englishman who should visit some new settlement in the interior of Arkansas and from his observation there form an estimate of American character and culture and should write of us as a people liviug in log huts, our hogs, chickens and children living in intimate companionship, would give as correct a judg ment as the average verdict passed upon the Indian. E\_ - 1 _ n * utuiwn n tv ten u«j3 shocked hy the report of the cold-blooded murder of two of cur commissioners hy treacherous Modocs, and the too general feel ing has found utterance, “The Indian ought to be exterminated.” We have not heard of war being declared against the fatheiiand of Wagner because of his infamous crime on Smutty Nose island, or of an army being sent to exterminate the Louisianians, because of the slaughter of 200 helpless negroes at Colfax court-house by Mc Enery's ruffians. There are whole tribes of Indians peacefully cultivating their reserva tions who probably never heard of Capt. Jack and who have no more sympathy with or re sponsibility for the tragedy of the Lava beds than has Bismarck for Wagner’s crime or the citizens of Maine for tiie inhuman butchery of Grant Parish. The Indian should be treated as a man. If lie is a murderer he should be made to suffer ths penalty of his crime; if he is disposed to obey law, lie should h: protected by law; and an enlightened philanthropy sees in him, however degraded it may find him, the pos sibilities of a civilized man; and the success that lias in many quarters attended tho pres ent Indian policy, warrants us in believing that Secretary Delano is right in looking for ward to the day when the Indian, taught the arts of peace, shall be a valuable citizen of our republic instead of the expensive curse he has been in the past. Viator. A Political Experiment.—It will not surprise anybody that General Butler an nounces his intention of promoting himself to the Governorship of Massachusetts, or that lie is confident not only of receiving the Re publican nomination but of election. In the way of assurance or brazen proclamation 'of his own merits'apd prospects, anything com ing from Butler no longer surprises the pub lic. But it wiH be a surprise indeed if Massa chusetts ever shall choose sucii a man for Governor, and it will take more than Mr. Butler's assertion to prove that the Republi can party is so poor as to accept him as a leader outside of his district. There would he one cousoiation, however, from his candi dacy through the regular machinery of a par ty, and that is tho possibility that he might be buried under a popular majority so large that his political career would be closed for ever.—N. T. Evening Post TIIE LOUISIANA MASSACRE. Official Ilrpsrt cf llsc Officers of General I^oiignU-cet’s Staff. The official report of Colonels William Wright and T. W. De Klyne, of General Long stiect’s staff, wlio were sent out to Grant Par ish to investigate tiie troubles there, appears in the New Orleans Republican of Friday^ It ful ly confirms the first reports of the Colfax Massacre: Wo reached Piueville, opposite Alexandria, ntt*.?.0 a. m.,011 Monday, tho 14th instant, where we were informed that a revere actiou had taken place at Colfax the day before (Sun day): that from 150 to 200 colored men had been killed; that two white men named Had not and Harris, were wounded, the former mortally, and that Colfax, or part of it, had been burned. Upon crossing the river to Al exandria, we became cognizant of the existence of a violent, though suppressed, popular ex ciiiriuciiu m aiisu uiuciaii) c.\pcoi?cu muuiatnco as apprehensive of an outbreak iu Alexandria, directed against the colored men and the offi cials holding office under the administration of Governor Kellogg. We were urged to procure the presence of troops as speedily as possible. We left Alexandria at about 11.30 a. m. Dur ing our stay there mounted men were con stantly crossing the river, coming from the di rection of Colfax, and, just as wo left, a party of twenty, mounted and armed, apparently, with shot-guns, crossed the river in a body. DEPLORABLE CONDITION OF AFFAIRS. Having secured an ambulance, we {crossed the river into Grant Parish early on the morn ing of Tuesday, the lath inst., and started for Colfax, distant about fifteen miles. We found the path in a most deplorable state. The crops are be ng neglected, many of the residents, both white and colored, have left their homes, and a general sense of insecurity prevails which we are satisfied can only bo removed by the presence of troops. About one-third of a mile below the court-house we came upon a party of colored men and women carrying away a wounded colored man upon a sled. At a little distance in the field were the dead bodies of two colored meu. About two hundred yards nearer the court-house were three dead bodies of colored men, and from that point to the court house and ils vicinity the ground was thickly strewn with dead. We were unable to find the body of a white man, or to ascertain the loss of the whites. Colored women assert that two wagon loads loads of Whites dead and weunded. were carried away, but it is persistently denied by anv of the whites claiming to have knowl edge of the actual loss, they asserting that but one man on their side was killed, aud Had uot aud Harris were wounded. We may state here that Hadnot has since died in Alexandria. We send herewith a plan of the court house and its defences. A space of about 200 yards square was inclosed in a slight earthwork, with ditch inside. The ditch was from 10 to 18 inches in ceptb, and the breastwork in the front of it from 20 to 30 inches in height, and was protected in front by SOj-inch planking. On the lower side of the court-house the greater portion of the breastwork was composed of planking alone, laid in zig-zags, and without ditches. THE FIGHT OF SUNDAY. From what information we could get, we be lieve that the fight commenced on Suuday, the 13th instant, between 10 and It a. m., and con tinued until nearly dark. Of the numbers en gaged on either side it is impossible for us to form any definite idea, though we are satisfied that the parties holding the court house were less in number than their assailants. It is as serted bv the colored people that the a»saiiauts consisted of parties from the parishes of Winn Kapides, Natchitoches, Catahoula and Caddo’ 1„ addition to those from Grant; but they were either unable or unwilling to give us the nornes of any parties participating in the. attack All statements that we have heard agree substan tially in the mam particulars. It is agreed that the attacking party was commanded by C C Nasi', and the assailed by a man named Leo Alleu , that the besieged were given thirty miu "tos ^ remove the,r women and children, and tliat at the expiration of that time the ti-dit was commenced by the assailin- nartv Tlie camioi)Uti?alH ka^ *n their possession a small Ai, - Vt kC11 ?^1,1 the steamboat James T. iloore, from which they fired bolts, a sample of winch we deposit in your office. The besieged had rigged np a couple of guns by fastening lengths of gas pipo on rafter timbers, blocking up one end with a pine plug, and drilling a touch-hole. One of these was hursted wl ile trying it some days before the fight,and the oth er has not the appearance of having been used. the MAssaciiE. Some time during the afternoon the besieged were drive from the fight aud from their breastworks into tlie court house. One cud of this building was without windows, nor had the besieged prepared loopholes. A colored mau iiamed Isaiah Atkins informed|us that Mr iSiisn had forced a colored man called P ink to come to this end of the building and hold a pine torch to tlie edge of the roof until it caught tire. It is our opinion that few of the colored men had been killed up to this time, but that when forced by tlie tiro to leave tlie court bouse they were shot down without mercy. Tlie po sition aud condition of many of tlie bodies go far to prove this. Under tiic warehouse, be tween the court house and the river, wen»Uie dead bodies of six colored men, who had evi dently gone under for concealment, and were there shot like dogs. Many were shot in tlie hack of the head and neck.' One man still lay with his hands clasped iu supplication; the face of another was completely flattened by blows from a broken stock of a double-barreled gun, lying on the ground near him; another had been cut across the stomach with a knife, after being shot, aud almost all had from three to a dozen wounds. Many of them had their brains literally blown out. PRISONERS EXECUTED AND THEIR BODIES PITCHED INTO THE RIVER. It is asserted by the colored people that after tlie fight 34 prisoners who were taken before the burning of the court-liouse, were taken to tlie river back, two by two, executed, and hurl ed into the river. We caused to be buried in tlie ditch, near.the court-house, the remains of 34 colored men, three of whom were so badly burned as to bo unrecognizable. There were inside the court-house tlie charred bones of one other, and five bodies we gave to their friends i for interment elsewhere. We saw also twelve ! wounded colored men, two of whom will cer i tainly die, and others of whom are very unlike 1 ly to recover. We are informed that since the fight parties of armed men have been scouring 1 the country surrounding Col lax, taking the mules and other property of the colored peo ple •‘since writing the above report we have seen on board the steamboat the colored man, Leon Allen, who commanded tlie parties holding the court-liouse, He assures us that not a single colored man was killed or wounded until after the surrender, aud that they were shot down without mercy. On our return to Alexandria we were again implored by citizens to have troops sent there at once as the only means of averting a disturbance. (Reportcffor the Press.) Grand Lodge of Good Templars.

During the summer months, and when we Jwere in the midst of au exciting political campaign, many Lodges suspended their meetings entirely, sotno of these after a great deal of correspond ence resumed their meetings, and after consid erable weeding, are now among our most active and energetic Lodges in tho State, and have in itiated a batter class of man and women. There are many other Lodges that with a little mis sionary labor might bo made equally as strong and permanent. The report reeom mends the employment of a lecturer in ev^ry county in the State during the year, whose dnty it shall ho to encourage and streugthen weak Lodges, and to save the fallen, and others from falling.

SCIKEXCK’S PULMONIC SYRUP, SCHENCK^S SEAWEED TO.YIC, SCHE^CK’S RAIUDRARE PILLS, Are the only medicines that will care Pulmonary consumption. Sometimes medicines that will stop a cough will of ten occasion the death of the patient. It locks up the liver, stops the circulation of the blood, hemorrhage follows, and, in fact, clogging the action of the very organs that caused the cough. Liver complaint and dyspepsia are the causes of two-tbiids of the cases of consumption. Many are now complaining with dull pain in the side, the bow els sometimes costive ami sometimes too loose, tongue coated, pain in the shoulder blade, feeling someiimes very restless, and at other times drowsy; the food that is aken lie6 heavily on the stomach, accompani ed with acidity and belching of wind. These symp toms usually originate irom a disordered condition of the stomach or a torpid liver. Persons so affected, if they take one or two heavy colds, and if the cough in these cases be suddenly stopped, tlio lungs, liyer and stomach clog, and remain torpid and inactive, anti before the patient is aware of his situation, the lungs are a mass of sores, and ulcerated, and death is the inevitable result. Schenck’s Pulmonic Syrup is an expectorant which does not contain any opium, nor anything calculated to check a cough suddenly. Schenck’s Seaweed tonic diss v the food, mixes with the gastric juice of the sto acli, digests easily, nourishes the system, aud creat a healthy circula tion of the blood. When the els are costive, skin shallow, and the patient is a billious habit, Schenck’s Mandrake Pills are required. These medicines arc prepaired by Dr. J. H.
