Hines was an accessory.^Moll Greer and Hines are in jail and will^probably have an examination to-day.^The Mexican, Mendoza, is in town and^will be used as a witness.

August29tb, 1867^Capt :^I started on the 27th ult. with^twenty-five men to discover, if possible,^the fate of Capt. Weston and his com^^rade, ^i^-stcrdav, when the advance ar^^rived at'Vhe banks of the Boulder, they^cam-j in sight of Indians on the bottom.^The advance, consisting of five men, im^^mediately fell back to a slight eminence^about three hundred yards froaj the^river, and sent back a messenger to in^^form me of the presence of the enemy.^I immediately advanced with the com^^mand to where the advance guard was,^and fearing an ambush in crossing,(both^banks being lined with thick brush.) I^ordered up the artillery and threw a few^shells into the timber. I then divided^the command and crossed at two differ^^ent places ; but when we arrived upon^the Other side the Indians were nearly^two miles across thy bottom. I pursued^them with ihe command for eight miles,^but could not overtake them. They were^evidently surprised, but had the advsn-^tage of having the Boulder between us.^and our horses having made a hard days'^march without feed, and theirs being^fr^ s'u. We fortunately saved the lives^of three men by arriving here at the^time we did, for they had attacked three^men in the morning, who had made their^way from Fort Smith. They had been^fighting list Indians all day, and sup^^posed them to number forty. They were^all wounded, one seriously. They say^that three Indians were carried off by^their comrades, and my command found^three d^ad Indian horses, one of which^Capt. Weston had ridden uj^on his trip.^We also found his riding saddle, his^pack saddles and cooking utensils, also^his prospecting tools. We found a hat,^supposed to belong to a man named^Brown, who, wiih his partner, came in^this direction prospecting in July last,^since which time nothing has been heard^from them.
Thereis no doubt in my mind but^that Capt. Weston has been killed, also^his comrade, the emigrant. I shall leave^here today with fifty men and three^days rations and make a forced march as^far as the Clearwater, and try to over^^take this party.
Everythingin the deserted camp goes^to prove that they were a trur party of^nmOLT C'RoWtf. I shall leave twenty^five men here with one piece of artillery,^in charge of the pack train. The men^have just found a coat that was given to^tiie emigrant, which he had on at the^time that he was killed, in which there^was one bullet hole and seven made with^arrows.

TheBattle Field of Sadowa.^A^foreign journal says that Sadowa is be^^ing disforested. It will be remembered^that this wood was the key to the battle^of Kosnigratz, on the holding of which^for a long time hung the victory or de^^feat. It is now being stripped of its^timber by Austrian wood-cutters, and^the writer believes that this is being^done to destroy all traces of a locality^that must forever remind them of a great^national humiliation. The trunk* of^the trees, as they fall before the axe,^are found thickly studded with bullets,^and scores of gamine are on the ground,^industriously extracting them from their^ligneous lodgment. The writer, who^had himself been present at this deci^^sive action of the two great contending^armies, describes some singular emo^^tions, to which the scene ot the disfor^^esting gave rise. By the sharp clink^and dull thud of the axes, the crash of^the falling trees, the loud talk of the^wood cutters, the shouts and noisy dis^^putes between relic-hunters and rival ap-^propriators of spoil, combined with the^smoke and blaze of their bivouac fires,^he was reminded of the battle itself.^And at his feet lay skulls and skeletons^of Austrians as well as Prussians, tram-^pied and turned up out of their shallow^interment^here and there is scattered^groups, and sometimes large collections,^giving it the appearance of some vast^Golgotha. The writer ingeniously adds^that the scene produced a sad. singular^impression upon his mind.
