The next morning Farwell went out to the stable to look after his horse, and invited the girl to accompany him. She accepted the invitation.

St. Louis, May 13T—The Congressional Con vention assembled at noon. Mayor Brown made an address of welcome, in which he said the convention was not for the purpose of in fluencing them or committing them to vote for any project, but for the purpose of submitting to them the plain practical ueeds of the West. Hon. Henry I. Blow then delivered an ad dress od the general object of the conference, in the course of which he said cheap transpor tation was the great thing needed The coun try is threatened with railroads over which pas sengers and freight can be transported in all directions; but a feeling has grown up in this valley, as well as in other parts of the country, that there are existing combinations on the part of these corporations against the interests of the producing classes. He then paid a trib ute to the railroad system of the country, and urged generous treatment of these great repre sentatives of capital, labor and enterprise. He said he who would unduly impede their pro gress would soou learn that the march of pro gress and of American enterprise cannot be arrested by a prejudice or ignorance, and that onr plighted faith can never bo disturbed by senseless repudiation or the schemes of narrow minded demagogues. As a remedy for these real or supposed combinations, he proposed competition and to carry out the competition be asked congress to give the country a nation al water syatem, equal to our railroad system, the result of which lie said would be the ad miration of the world. He then referred to the products and resources of the Mississippi valley, and said St. Louis was destined to be come the centre of the iron trade of the world, and that within twenty years Texas will pro duce more cotton annually than is now export ed from the whole country. Hod. E. O. Stanard, member elect to Con gress from the first district of this city, spoke on behalf of the Merchants’ Exchange of St. Louis, and on the commercial interests of the Mississippi valley. The speech was lengthy and abounded in statistical information bearing upon the productiveness of the country and the great demand for increased and cheaper facili ties for trausportation. Gov. Woodson was introduced and gave the members a warm, fraternal welcome in behalf of the people of the State. He also referred to reports which have gen eral circulation to the effect that this meeting had some political significance or purpose. This he denied in toto, stating that no one had am such design, and saying that the strongest desire and highest ambition of tho people of the city and State is to see all parts of this great country, united in fraternal bonds, bound by common interests, and sectional feelings and animosities put aside forever. He then entered into some interesting statistics regarding the agricultural and mining wealth of Missouri. CASUALTIES. One JIsi Killed (and Another Injured—A Bridge Smashed.

New York, May 13.—San Francisco dis patches contain intelligence, brought by cour iers arriving last night from the front, of the last engagement with the Modocs Capt. Hasbrouck reports that his command was attacked very suddenly by 33Modocs head ed by Capt Jack, who wore the uniform of Gen. C&nby. Four soldiers and one Warm Spring Indian were killed and six soldiers and one Warm Spring Indian wounded. After the first fire of the Modocs, Capt. Hasbrouck rai ned his men and charged upon them in a body. The Modocs retreated under the charge and were driven into the woods, scattering^ iu all directions. Several volleys were fired upon gjg, biit it i. not known whether any were A dispatch from the Lava Beds says that the oouics found by the exploring expedition which went out on tne <Jth iust., were those of Lieut. Cranston Surgeon Selig, Corporal Mooney. Bugler Moran privates Albion and Bloom, bsme were badly mutilated. Lieut. Cranston was scalped, as was also one other. Louis Web ber, buried on the 2Hth uU., bad been du" up and the tendons of his legs taken out. *The officers in command expressed surprise at the great strengtn of the fortifications erected on the top of the small sand hill in front of the j large beetle. They say that 35 determined men could defeat a regiment, if attacked, and here : was where tne llKated troops were led on to the slaughter. The Modocs returned to Modoc point, where they attacked and burned the train the day previous, aud succeeded in finish ing the destruction of the wagons. Gen. Hardee leaves for Klamath to learn the situation of those Indians. He will return shortly, in view of the important movements to be made here soon. After that he will leave for the northern country and learn the true sit uationicf the tribes there. Acting assistant surgeon Semig’s foot was amputated above the ankle yesterday. Ho is doing well. Another Account—The Modocs in the open Country—Particulars of the light. Lava Beds, May 11, via San Francisoo, May 12.—Despatches from Lt. Baylass’ camp state that at sunrise yesterday the Modo-scamc into camp and fired on the picket guard. The command of Capt. Hasbrouck after scouting all day had returned to Sorass Lake for water, and were making efforts to secure some by digging but none could bo found. Donald McKay was sent back to Lieut. Raless’ catnp as escort of battery B, 4th artillery. G and B troops of the 1st Cavalry left for the scene of the fight, a dis tance of 17 miles. The march occupied all night. Capt. Jack’s band rode within a hun dred yards of the camp, when all dismounted and charged on the camp firing into the herd and guard. The first volley stampeded the herd which left for the camp, and while the men were getting under arms the Modocs gave vol ley after volley, kiliiug four soldiers and one V arm Spring Indian. A sally was made and McKay and some of his men united and drove the Modocs into the timber, capturing tweuty one horses and five pack mules. One Modoc was left on the field and nineteen mules, pack ed, also six dead bodies. The Indians beat a hasty retreat towards cLead’s range of moun tains. Cant. Hasbrouck handled his men dex terously. Ho is now furnished witli five days’ supplies, but water is very scaree which deters a long stay in the field. Gen. Davis is det; r mined to keep the savages moving until the last Modoc Is killed. The soldiers gained greater courage having the enemy in open grouud. The wounded are being brought into camp in wag ons and from there will ho taken to headquar ters. Two soldiers arc reported mortally wound ed. Capt. Hasbrouck thinks the Modocs hare no ammunition except what they have remaining in their pouches, as they lost their eutire re serve of ammunition in the fight. The cavalry are in camp all safe. Capt. Jack has hut seven animals with him. Ho wore the attire of Gen. Canby, and took his position in the field in as lordly a manner as if lie had been a brigadier general. The artillery will move at once to the other side of the lake. Enough men remain in the old stronghold to make them safe, while the rest give chase and try to exterminate the fugitives. There were thirty-three Modocs en gaged. No squaws were seen during the tight, nor by the scouts on the following night. There is a strong suspicion that Jack is receiving aid from some unknown party, lt appears strange however that he got six boxes of central prim ed cartridges. He did not capture them from our forces, and it is certain he could uot have picked up that amount after the battle of Jan uary 17tli. When the courier left the troops were be tween the lava beds and the Indians, the battle being entirely out of the lava beds stronghold. The condition of Lieut. Harris is much the same as last report, but there is a greater hope of his recovery. Lava Beds, May 12.—The forces arc acting some 25 miles from here and are working this way, aud piobably driving the Modocs towards the stronghold they occupied at the time of the Thomas massacre. Troops are moving from this camp this morning hoping to cut them oil. All are active now and the Modocs will be allow ed no rest. San Francisco, May 13.— A despatch from Yreka says,that the Modocs are 25 miles from ghe scene of the last fight hotly pursued by the troops and Warm Spring Indians. The meeting of the Veterans.
