All the principal' men having assembled inside

then opened by Crazy-Horse, who is notably a
man pi'few words. Seating himself'on the
gronrict in front of the General, lie spoke in a
low voice as follows: You sent tobacco to mv
camp to invite me to come in. "When the to
bacco reached me I started, and kept on mov

pected killing and wounding many. About
forty men were under the, Saratoga when she
went off. An order was given for them to
come out, but was not heard. The scene dur
ing the time the ship was going off was heart
rending, the men being seen struggling to es
cape while the huge blocks, rolled by the
ship, crushed them to jelly. N,o assistance
could possibly be rendered by those who were
standing by. Instead of'cheers, as usually
greets a launch, a wail of anguishwent upland
shrieks of pain rent.the, air. As spon. as pos
sible the dead and wounded were carried to the
yard offce and physician's summoned: About
1,900 men are employed at. the yard, and the
friends of nearly all of them rushed to enquire
for them. It was fouhd after investigation
that seven were, killed [outright, and many

is a great advantage to the Russians, for be
