HIADQ'Rs lT MON. VOL. CAv.,
ON THE BOULDER RivER.
August 29th, 1867.
CAPr :-I started on the 27th ult. with
twenty-five men to discover, if possible,
the fate of Capt. Weston and his com
rade. 1$sterday, when the advance ar
rived ati.'e banks of the Boulder, they
came 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 from 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 the bottom. I pursued
them with the command for eight miles,
but could not overtake them. They were
evidently surprised, but had the advan
tage of having the Boulder between us.
and our horses having made a hard days'
march without feed, and theirs being
fresh, 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 the 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 dead Indian horses, one of which
Capt. Weston had ridden upon 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, with his partner, came in
this direction prospecting in July last,
since which time nothing has been heard
There is no doubt in my mind but
that Capt. Weston has been killed, also
his comrade, the emigrant. I shall leave
here to-day with fifty men and three
days rations and make a forced march as
far as the Clearwater, and try to over
take this party.
Everything in the deserted camp goes
to prove that they were a war party of
FRIIENDLY Crowr. 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
the emigrant, which he had on at the
time that he was killed, in which there
was one bullet hole and seven made with

T.H BATTLe FIrL O SADOWA.-A
foreign journal says that aedowa is be
ing distoreeted. It will be remembered
that this wood was the key to the battle
of Kenigrats, 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 ofea grat
national humiliation. The trunks of
the trees, as they fall beibre the axe,
are found thiekly stdded with bullets,
and scores of gamisd are on the ground,
industriously extracting them from their
ligneous lodgiment. The writer, who
had himself been present at this dda
ire seti.a of the two great conteadlng
armies, describee some ntagular em
tiones to whieh the scee of the disbo
esting gave rise. By the sharp clink
and dull thud of the axes, the crash of
the falling trees, the load talk of the
wood-cutters, the shouts aend noisy dis
putes between reliehuaters and rival ap
proprldeAors of spqoell, combined with the
smoke and blame of their bivouae sIw,
he was reminded of the battle itselL
