THE FIGHT AT UMATILLA.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 15.A dispatch gives
the following account of the fight at Umatilla
reservation: News reached Col. Miles, who was
at Pendleton, that the hostile* were at the
reservation. He at once started for the scene
with 300 regulars. After a march of about six
miles, and when within a short distance of
Cayuz station he encountered between 400 and
500 warriors. This was about 8 o'clock
in the morning. Getting the men into
position, Col. Miles opened fire on the hostiles,
who returned it, but without effect, nerther
side sustaining, any .injury. This war continued
without rntermissicn rntil 12 o'clock when the
Indians attempted to charge Milaa l'ne, b*t
were driven off, the red-skins being unable to
stand the fire from the howitzer. In the charge
the Indians sustained considerable loss, those
present estimating their dead at fifteen. Miles'
casualties consisted of two men wounded, one
the arm and one in the leg. Shortly after 1
o'clock the Indians feJl back toward the moun
This is the first time during tbifi camr/aign
the hostiles have attempted a charge, and
shows they are driven to desperation. During
the whole fight they shot wild. Miles' object,
in view of the overwhelming number against
him, was to prevent the advance of the hos

reinforced. This he did, although his troops

FIGHT AT CAYUSA STATION.
PORTLAND, July 15.The following dispatch
is received from Pendleton: Troops under
Capt. Miles drove the Indians into the Foot
hills, near Cayusa station. They fought four
or five hours at long range in the valley.
Finally the troops and volunteers made a
charge and drove them four miles to the hills,
and captured several horses on the field. The
volunteers did well. The officer in command
complimented them highly. Quite a number
ot Indians were killed, but the number could
not be learned. Nothing is doing to-day but
scounting. The Indians had not moved late
in the day, and are watched clobe. To-night
Col. Bernard's cavalry arrived ou the Umatilla

CHICAGO, July 15.A Tribune special from
Fort Thompson, D. T., says: The visit of
Commissioner Hayt to the Indian agencies is

cality on the Missouii river and a conspiracy
between agents and traders which startle even
Dr. Livingston, of Crow Creek, is condemned
by overwhelming testimony, as he was taken
unawares and has no opportunity to remove
the evidence of hifi guilt. His stealing began
in 1870, when first appointed, through the in
fluence of the Episcopal church, as agent of the
combined Crow Cicek and Lower Brule agen
cies, numbering three thousand.
He had accumulated a foitune, acquired an
inteiest in three Nevada silver mrnes, owns two
cattle ranches and a hotel which was regularly
supplied with food and vegetables fiom the
agency where he and his partneisthe agency
employeswho were most ignorant men,
boaided. They utilized the government black
smith shop and material for private gain, fed
their private stock at the government crib, sold
government vv ood to steamboats and hay to
Black Hills wagons.
Indian annuities were stolen and sold. The
ring would charge the government for hay and
wood, which the Indians were compelled to put
up in order to get their annurtres and rations
and then sell this hay and wood a second time
to steamboats, military posts and bull
The proceeds of crops raised on the agency
weie not accounted for. The traders ware
house was stocked from the government ware
house and provisions sold to Indians. Rations
and annuities were drawn for 300 moie Indians
than were at the agency. Congress appropri
ated $S170,000'"for this agency during Living
ston's administration and he stole all he
could. His ignorant employes, glad to get ra
tions, would issue false vouchers, of which 150
have already been discovered, ranging in
amount from $50 to 1,500.
Livingston was, says the Courier, a pious
fiaud, guilty of every crime against official
honor and business integrity. Neighboring
agents and traders are in the same conditron as
to dishonesty, except that they have been gen
erally notified of the coming storm and have
put their houses in order. The returns of the
agents as to the goods on hand are almost invar
iably false forgeiies and perjuries of nearly
every day occurrence, and the amount of evi
dence is overwhelming. Inspector Hammond
has removed three agents since last spring and
replaced them with military officers as acting
agents. The crack of doom is sounded about
RED CLOUD'S BAND.
RED CLOUD AGENCY, D. T., July 13.Com-
missioner Hayt and the Stanley commission
held a council yesterday with Red Cloud Indi
ans. Hayt spoke pleasantly to them and Red
Cloud responded. He said they wanted to go
to White Clay creek, over two hundred miles
from the Missouri river. They would not lo
cate nearer. The great father had promised
this section in writing. He wanted five hun
dred cows and other cattle, wagons,
farm houses and schools. He was content with
their supplies. He wanted a Catholic priest.
The commissioners saw it was useless to
attempt to get the Indians to locate on the
Missouri river, but Gen. Stanley told Red
Cloud the cost of transportation of supplies
that long distance would come out of the sup
plies. The commissioners generally agreed
that Red Cloud was right, and that the Indians
might go West. Spotted Tail is equally deter
mined to go thirty-five miles west of the Mis
onri river. Hayt is much disappoi nted.

A CONVICT'S ATTEMPTED SUICIDE.
"Tom" Ballard, the Counterfeiter, Tries to
[Albany, (July 11,) Special to the New York
The Albany penitentiary was the scene last
night of the most determined attempt at sui
cide that has been recoided for many a day.
'"Tom" Ballard, the famous counterfeiter, who
was serving a term of twenty years' imprison
ment for making counterfeit United
States notes, stabbed himself in the
neck and in the left arm with a rude
knife made by himpelf out of a steel lib of a
shoe. Finding that death did not seem likely
to ensue trom these wounds. Ballard, with the
same weapon, ripped his abdomen open from
the naval upward, so that his entrails lapped
out upon the floor. With all those wounds,
which he claims to have given hinibelf between
1 and 2 o'clock on Thursday morniug, Ballaid
lay conscious and without aid on his cot until 7
o'clock this morning,when his groans attracted
a keeper, who informed Deputy Superintendent
Woodruff that he thought Ballaid was ill.
When Woodmrl entered Ballard's cell he
found the convict in his cot under cover, and
so self posessed that no thought of the terrible
injuries he had inflicted upon himself was sug
gested by his appearance. Ballard simply be
gan begging that he should not be punished,
and pulling down the bed-clothes and showing
the wound in the abdomen, baid ap
pealingly: "It's no use to pun
ish me I have taken my own life." The
deputy immediately sent for the prison
physician, who did all that he could, but there
seems to be no possibility of lecovery, as the
intestines are themselves gashed in places. It
was disclosed upon further inquiry of the
prisoner that he had meditated suicide for sev
eral weeks twenty-seven years of his sentence
remaining still to be served, and the prospect
of so long a time in prison was especially
gloomy to so active and intelligent a man
Ballard has been. But he was never able to
screw his courage to the commis
sion of the act untrl last night,
when he heard two fellow prisoners in an ad
joining cell say that they "had put up a job to
get him the liveliest switching he ever had."
Then, he said, he committed the deed on the
impulse of the moment, to avoid the switch
ing. He had had opportunities in plenty to
kill himself all along, as acids had been found
in his cell, and he had used in the shop where
he worked, a keen-edged knife, but he had,
nevertheless, committed the deed with a blunt
instrument, as described above. There was no
reason why he should fear punishment, being a
well behaved convict, and never having been
either punished or reported. Ballard has a
wife and daughter living on Forty-fifth street,
New York, who have been sent for. The offi
cials of the penitentiary, in Capt. Pillsbury's
absence, at first refused to give out any partic
ulars whatever about the matter, and even pro
fessed ignorance of any unusual occurrence in
the prison. Ballard will be especially remem
bered for an alleged proposal made by him to
the government to give the authorities a recipe
for the prevention of all counterfeiting in re
turn for a pardon, and for his general reputa
tion as the most successful counterfeiter in the

Reward of N. Y. Officeholders.
[Wash. Special (July 11) Cincinnati Enquirer.
The removal of Collector Arthur and
val Officer Cornell, of New York, causes a
deal of comment in political circles here, be
cause it is a reopening of the contest between
the administration and Conkling, and is the
first really aggressive blow Hayes has struck
in that fight. Up to this time the fight has
been pretty much of Conkling's making, and
he has been uniformly victor.
It will be remembered that the President
did once before send in new names for the
offices, that there was a great fight over
them in the Senate, and Conklin secured
their rejection. Now the President seems
to have assumed the offensive, and has
Conkling's pets summarily and effect
ively, for a time at least, since the Senate is
not in session to either reject or confirn.
Under the law, if the Senate refuses to
confirm when it again meets in December,
the old incumbent will be reinstated, and
will remain in office until new names are
confirmed, or until Congress adjourns
again, when the President can repeat his
present tactics. Meanwhile, until Congress
reconvenes, the new appointees will hold the
offices and draw the pay, and hence the
President will be master of the situation
The President's present action is in ac
cordance with the advice which Harper's
Weekly and the Curtis-Fenton wing of the
New York Kepublicans have been giving nim
very persistently of late but the President's
peacefulness while Congress was in session
and aggressiveness now are looked upon
here as a sign of cowardice. The President's
act is undoubtedly intended to aid in a fight
being made to prevent Conkling's return to
[Long Branch special (July 11) to Cincinnati
John Sherman arrived at the West End
hotel to-night, with a little party composed
of Wenb C. Hayes, James Gilfilian, D. Baker
and E. J. Babcock. As his arrival imme
diately followed the startling announcement
of the removal of Collector Arthur and Sur
veyor Cornell, a dozen leading politicians at
once surrounded him. Tom Murphy, who
made an assignment of all his property to W.
H. Scott to-day, lost none of his political
aplomb, but undauntedly squatted by Sher
man's elbow at dinner to f-et the news of
things and carry the same to Roscoe. A
lively conversation was carried on all over
the hotel and the Branch.
Hugh Hastings said it was a piece of
damned stupidity, like the removals of John
ryler, Millard Fillmore and Andy Johnson,
to get up an Administration party. Said
Hastings- "Fillmore turned me out of the
coUectorship ot the Port of Albany, and the
collector of Buffalo and several others, be
cause we were Seward and Windfield Scott
men. What was the result? got only
three votes for his renomination in the
Presidential convention from Now York.
Hayes'administration has only been spared
from denunciation in the State conventions
for good feeling. I is condemned by the
party everywhere.*' Hastings added that he
did not believe a story told in New York,
that Senator Conkling had consented to
these removals for the sake of harmony in
the party this fall.
Governaf Warmoth said the removals at
tbisEtime were, silly, but added: '-If I had
beejHayes I should haVe persevered in
maKing tbera. Everybody knows tbatf Mr.
Conkling, whose agents those men are. has
never spared an instant's effort to traduce
and .belittle the President. Not 5,000 Ke
publicans in the United States care one cent
who is collector of the port of New York."
After dining with Sherisaw, Tom Murphy
said: "The removals are unwise, and will
strengthen Conkling throughout the State.
Nobody can say that the custom house
machine is the strength of Conkling. His
real machine is not so much in the custom
house as in the police board and other city
departments. I think one result will be to
put Conkling on the stump in every Assem
bly district in the State, both he and his
friends, and nerve them up to make a strong
fight. If other removals of Conklin ""s
friends follow, it will intensify the oppo
sition to Hayes. Sherman and Evarts."
The removals have been botched. Merrilt
is an old woman. When Secretary Sherman
came out from dinner I asked him if the re
movals had been suddenly agreed on.
replied: "No they were made after fall
Mr. Sherman said the investigation com
mittee was getting desperate when they were
searching for old private letters such as he
wrote to your correspondent. lighted
his cigar and went out to sniff the Atlantic
breezes. I is related that last night he went
to Coney Island with Whitelaw Keid.
Heasoning people here say the custom
house removals were proper, aud will injure
Conkling. as he cannot make any new ma
chine equal in efficiency to the old. Some
observe that when Merritt will be collector,
Fenton will pull the strings. Many regret
that Hayes did not make the fight on Arthur
and Cornell while the Senate was in session.
Mr. McCarthy, of Syracuse, represents that
in the interior of the State Conkling is ab
solute with his party at present.
John Sherman said to-night, in conversa
tion with Warmoth and Tom Murphy:

Kepublican convention were held now he
would be nominated easily," GATU.

are inclined to think that they willhave to

Currie, Murray county, 1'ion.wr, July 11th:
A heavy rain visited this region last night,

Grasshoppers were seen living through the air
for three or four days last week. They were

their lighting in large enough numbers to do
any serious damage.
Lake City Laula July 13: Considerable
moisture has been falling this week. We mean
rain, of course^plain, old-fashioned rain,
without any "stick" in it. The result i- as it
has been accompanied by a sort of sultry heat,
that the wheat has not been benefited, but
rather hurt. Rust has begun its demordli/mg
and the heat has prevented its filling
besides it has commenced to npeii it pre
maturely. The present is an exceedingly
critical time with the great crop in which is
embodied the wealth of Minnesota and al
though we have been wont to look for sixty or
seventy millions of bushel1-
of the golden wheat,
we apprehend that when the crop comes to be
measured in the bushel, it will be found that
the result of our season's product will not be
much in advance of our last year's croprn
dollars and cents.
Rochester Iterord and Union, July 12: The
rain of Sunday cleared the dry and sultry at
