THE RED MAN'S WRONGS.
An Eye-AVIInem' Narrative of the Massa
cre at Camp Grant.
Frm a private letter by an eye-witness cf the
late i.pache horrors in Arizona, the Baltimore
jimencan makes the following interesting ex
tracts: Let me explain to yon the circumstances of
the nassacre. The Apaches, you know, have
alwayi been considered the most hopeless of
Indiais, and have always refased to treat with
the Government, or go on any reservation. The
poet commander at Camp Grant, Lieutenant
Vhltmtn, believing they could be much im
proved by a systematic course of kind
ness, had gradually induced five hun
dred of them, commencing with a few
starving old women, to come into camp
star the post and accept food and work. Con
trary to all expectation they seemed grateful,
and disposed to make terms with the Govern
ment at last; the men were obedient to the
f lightest suggestion from their new-found friend,
and women and children seemed gay, happy and
contented. Ha spent hours explaining to them,
through his interpreter, their duties to the coun
try, and told them they would be taken care of
if they would only be peaceable and industrious.
They comprehended the situation at once, and
had made a brave beginning toward improve
ment, and were even clearing the ground
to put in a crop ol corn. But the
notorious Apache at peace was no good news
to the white adventurers, whose living depends
entirely on the few thousands of hunted and
ignotaut savages, and accordingly a party of
white men, who prefer hostile Indians as more
lucrative at and near Tucson, formed the hu
mane plan of attacking this peaceful camp near
ns, and killing every man, woman, and child
they could lay hands on. k messenger was de
spatched to Lieutenant 'Whitman, telling him
his proteges were in danger, and he sent imme
diately to warn the friendly red men of their
Seril. His msssenger was too late the burning
uts and the ground strewn with bodies
of butchered women and children were all
there was left of the first earnest attempt to
civilize the Apaches. It was an awful sight. The
survivors had fled to the fastnesses of the moun
tains. Word was sent to them to bring their
wounded to the post for care, and they did so,
the principal chief being first to como in. ' He
was naked, and when he held out his hand for
the usual shake he was so choked he could
scarcely speak. Almost like a human being,
wasn't it? Pointing to his naked and solitary
condition, hs said: "This is my family!"
three wives and seven children being killed
before his eyes in the space of five minutes.
The rest came straggling in one by one, stripped
of their clothing, their hair pulled out or cut
off, and seemed entirely heart-broken. This
slaughter was the end ef their first attempt at
accepting the white man's protection.
What can be done under such discourage
ments to civilize the Indians? Among a people
who make more money off his warhoop than
when at peace, how can any Christianizing pro
cess succeed? I am no advocate of Indian
eaintliness of character; but. viewing the above
unprovoked butchery of well-behaved Indians,
are you not compelled to admit that the red
man is quite as desirable a neighbor as the
majority of frontier palefaces?
Twi Hundred Victims of Croton OH
Verdigris at a Wedding Feast.
From the Dubuque Telegraph, June 6.
A poisoning horror, reminding one of
terrible doiDgs of the Borglas, occurred at Fort
Dodge on Thursday night last.
On Thursday Mr. Grant, the ticket agent of
the Des Moines Valley Railroad, was married, at
Fort Dodge, to a young lady named Miss York.
Numerous Invitations were extended to the
leading citizens and their families to ba present
at the feast. In the evening the house of Mrs.
York, the bride's mother, was thrown open, and
about 9 o'clock no less than two hundred ladies
and gentlemen sat down to partake of the ele
gant repast which bad been prepared. The
affair proceeded pleasantly till shortly after 10
o'clock, when some of the visitors were taken
ill quits suddenly, and had to be removed.
Others were similarly affected in rapid suc
cession, and presently the horrible suspicion
flashed across the minds of all that they had
been poiconed. The bride and groom became
ill, and were taken to their reom. Every phy
sician in the city was summoned, but as many
of these were at the feast, they were also ill,
and unable to even properly attend to them
selves. What a few minutes before was a scene
of joy was changed t one of almost death-like
despair. The victims were removed to their
home, and groans and moaning were heard in
almost every household. The pala and sickness
are almost beyond description. Up to Satur
day at noon, 147 persons had undergone ago
nies warse almost than death, and a number of
others were becoming ill.
The effects were certainly those of poison.
The victims were first affected with retching,
vomiting, and purging, attended with cramps.
The pulse became so weak as to be barely per
ceptible, while the extremities were cold, and
the muscles and nerves greatly contracted. In
many cases the sufferers were afflicted with
temporary paralysis, losing all power ever their
limbs. Almost all of them underwent a relapse,
from which some may never recover. Various
theories as to the cause ef the poisoning are
afloat many contending that the death-dealing
substance was in the cake, while ethers believe
that some malicious mischief-maker poured
croton oil into some of the eatables. The
most probable theory is that the cause of the
occurrence was the fee cream. The cream was
secured by Mrs. York, and given to a confec
tioner to freeze. In performing the work, the
confectioner ned a copper refrigerator, lined
with tin. On Friday the refrigerator was ex
amined, when a greasy substance was found on
the sides undoubtedly verdirris. The con'
iectiouer had no idea, probably, that the re
frigerator bad not been properly cleaned, for he
partook of Uie ice cream uiiuooU, and became
Prospects of the Proponed Iae of the
United Railroads of New Jersey.
The adoption, at the meeting of tbe stock
holders of the United Railroad Companies of
New Jersey on Wednesday, of a resolution ap
proving the course of the joint board in further
ing tie proposed lease of the companies property
to the Pennsylvania Central Railroad CompaDy,
has occasioned seme commotion.
The expectation was that the resolution would
meet with considerable opposition, and the em
phatic "nays'1 of several of the stockholders
when the resolution was voted upon Justified
the anticipations. One stockholder stated to
several of his friends and the meeting that he
would Bot give his assent to the lease, and that
without the aosent of all the stockholders to
have their stock converted into bonds of the
Pennsylvania Central the lease could not be
It is only necessary, however, to have the
tssent of the owners of two-thirds of the stock
to make the contract valid. There arenow 72,913
shares of the New Jersey Railroad stock held by
the stockholders, and the owners of over 46,000
shares are, it is estimated, in favor of the lease.
Blnct it is among the stockholders of this com
pany mat the malcontents are found, it is consid
ered tsat the opposition does not amount to
much. The officers of the company think that
the conu-act will be fully made by the 1st of
July, and they are endeavoring to consummate
the lease ay that date, the terms of the contract
being such that if this is done the Pennsylvania
Central Conpany are to take the earnings of the
road for thh year and to pay the 10 per cent,
dividend on the slock.
That the contract will be made by the 1st of
July is considtred certain, unless its opponents
procure delay by litigation. Mr. Black, the
prominent member of the opposition, owns 500
shares, or $50,00) worth of stock, and no stock
holder, it is said, tither favorable or unfavorable
to the lease, owns more than 800 shares. It Is
furthermore asserted that the majority of the
opponents of the scieme are not heavy stock
holders, and that, therefore, their opposition
will not have the requisite weight. Should the
scheme fall through, the officers are preparing
to pay a five per cent 4lvidend by the 1st of
August, aad part of thh, they say, will come
from the surplus fund, as did one-third of the
ten per cent, dnidend of last yesr.
The 10 per cem, which Ue Pennsylvania Cen
tral proposes to pay wou'.d make aa annual
rent of $1,948,500, and they would take exclu
sive possession of all the rolling and floating
stock, buildings, and real estate of the New
Jersey Railroad, Camden and Amboy Railroad,
and Delaware and Rarltan Canal. It is con
sidered more than probable that litigation will
be tried to delay tha filfilment of the contract,
if made JV. 1'. Tr'Jbme, to-day.
MAN BUSIED ALIVE.
Forty-two Feet Unler Ground for Five
Hours, and Still Aire to Tell the Tale.
On Monday, 5th inftant, John Wentzell, a
pump-maker, of Reading was burled alive by
the caving in of a 42 fwt-stone-walled well, in
which he was at work. The accident occurred
shortly before 11 o'clock V the morning, and an
immense crowd was immediately drawn to the
spot. A large force of wotemen began laboring
at once by relays, to renpve the debris and
secure the body, none douMng that the buried
man was dead.
By noon some progress hid been made, and
one of the workmen asseied that he heard
Wentzel's voice. This was universally regarded
as imagination, however. Tie work was vigor

the afternoon there was no dmbt that he was

The Times and Dispatch hus concludes its

stimulus was administered to lim, and his body
was at length disengaged. Hi was discovered
to be compressed between the bttom section of

couple of feet above the water. la some pecu
liar manner the stone was archd over his head,
and the left arm was fastened ttder the heavy
mass, the other arm being partilly disengaged,
and clutching the rope. When dawn to the top,
the injured arm was paralyzed, tad it was found
that he had suffered three seere contusions
upon the head. He could stand alone, and in
eisted on his ability to walk houe, but was car

HOUSE BLOWN D0WI.
A Family of Seven Burled In tie Ruins,
but all Escape.
Yesterday morning, about half-past 5 o'clock,
a large two-story frame house belonging to Mr.
Christian Leutzer, on Prospect street, Letween
Butler street and Penn avenue, Seventeenth
ward, blew -down. The house was left stand
ing about ten feet abov the level ol the
new grade, and it was intended to irect
another story under it, aud for that
reason it rested on blocks. At the time sUted
all the members of the family, except Jlr.
Leutzer, were In bed. He was sitting in a rock
ing chair in his room, when the high wind pre
vailing at the time caugbt the structure aal
wheeled ltirom its temporary supports, render
ing it a complete wreck. The home fell diago
nally back from the street, struck on its corner,
and crushed down into a heap. So sudden was
the fall that not one of the seven persons la the
house had a chance to even attempt escape, and
all were buried in the wreck. One little boy
succeeded in crawling out very speedily after
the accident, and found himself unhurt. The
others bad to be gotten out from the debris by
the crowd that speedily gathered. The work
was long and tedious, but one by one all were
gotten out, and, iucredible as it seems, none
were found - to be injured. A litUa babe
was found to have a slight cut over its
eve, but that was the only injury sustained by
any. Mr. Leutzer himself was buried undir such
a mass of timber and boards that it required the
efforts of six men for a considerable time to cut
him out. It was hardly hoped that he would be
taken out alive, but he was found entirely unin
jured. The bouse was literally smashed, every timber
being splintered, and every article of furniture
entirely diminished. The excitement caused by
the affair was very great In the neighborhood,
and large crowds were about the place during
the early part ot the day. ruiso urg vommr

The Marquis of Gulllfct.
The Marquis of Gallifet came of an old French
family. One of his ancestors was particularly

now degraded Hay tl. He eutered the army early
in life, served in Algiers witn nonor, ana acqairea

of his own a conspicuous figure in the impe
rial world ot lasmon. ue iougnt
in the Crimea and in Italy; and he
was one of the very few French cavalrymen
who contrived to gather laurels in Mexico.
During the late disastrous war with Germany
he seems to have behaved with all bis constitu
tional gallantry; and, if we mistake not, he was
wounded in that extraordinary battle of Grave
lotte, in which, as impartial eye-witnesses now
assure ns, both sides were very Daaiy Deaten.
His stormy and violent career has ended now in

tleman of New York apropos of certain strictures
upon the ways and means ol the Marquis, wmcn
were written, as be believed, by that gentleman,
and published in a New 1 one weekly newspaper.
Of course some j udiclous friend took pains to have
them find their way back to Paris. But fortu
nately tbe duel ended without bloodshed in a
reconciliation on the Held and a breakfast at the
best hotel in Strasburg. Some three or four
years ago tbe name of the Marquis was brought
again before the public in connection with the
diegu&tiug scandal caused by a quarrel between
one of his cousins aud the debaucnea ana worth
less Prince Achille Murat. In this affair
the Marquis behaved with a degree of
spirit which gave considerable offense in high
quarters at the Tuileries. The high quarters are
low quarters now; tbe Tuileries are a heap of
ashes; and the dashing Marquis lies slain by a
vengeful woman s hand in that sodom of blood
and flame which but a vear ago was tbe love
liest capital of Lurope and of Christendom.
The cable despatches announce the death of
the eminent French fiuancler, Jules Mires. He
was born in Bordeaux, of Hebrew parentage,

A Hint as to How It was Obtained for Pub.
When the Tribune obtained its copy of the treaty
for publication, It knew well that copies were only
the possession of a few Senators, and some other
Government officers, all of whom were sworn to
keep it secret. MUuaukte Sentinel.
This is Senator Carpenter's defense at home.
Few words will dispose of it. The Tribune not
only knew nothing of the sort above stated, but
It knew tne exact opposite, ine treaty was in
plenty of hands not only not sworn to keep It
secret, but anxious to have it published. Either
the Milwaukee iwntxnei knew tnis, and so wrote
Itself down a reckless falsifier, or it didn't know
it, and so wrote itself down an ignorant dupe.
Has Mr. Carpenter any more cheap tools, as
dull as this, tbat he wants sharpened. Wouldn't
it be well to take oneoftwebenate pages out West
with him to give any other supporters he may be
able to find a little elementary information

marks of violence upon the horse Indicating that he

gation was that on the SOih of last month, during the

as to prevent her having the lead in the race, and

N. Y. MONEY MARKET YESTERDAY.
From the If. T. Herald. ...
"The leading bankers have made a further reduc
tion in rates for foreign exchange, the original de
cline produced by the sharp demand for cash gold
being assisted by the easy money market In London,
the i-ank of England showing a further increase of
about 375,000 in bullion.
Money was perhaps a little more active, and
rather better employment was found for it at three
to four per cent., the transactions at two per cent,
being exceptional. The strict quotation of the
market would be three per cent, on Government
collaterals and three to four per cent, on stocks.
Prime commercial paper was in good request, with
The bids for the Government gold called for a
total of $6,683,600, and the prices offered ranged
from 111-18 to 118-88. The sale was limited to a
million, which amount was awarded at 119-28
112 80, the average being as nearly as possible the
market price at aoon.
"The gold market was feverish on a light business.
The 'bails' did not seem disposed to press the bor
rowers of cash gold, and. In the relaxation of rates,
tbe market drifted in favor of the 'shorts,' but to
no important extent. After 8 o'clock two and
three per cent, were paid for the use of
gold to-morrow, which was taken to . mean
that the 'bulls' will renew the 'squeeze' then,
particularly as a week at least must go by befere
Mr. Bontwell can sell anymore gold quite a mar
gin of time within which to develop the 'bull' tac
tics. The market was unsettled between the limits
of 112V and 118)tf, the latter being an official but
disputed quotatlon.and nominal to the extent that it
was tne price or not more tnan a small lot.
"The Government list waa dull, dealings being In
terrupted by the suspension of the afternoon calls to
make wsy for the workmen engatred upon the
alterations at the Stock Exchange. The market waa
steady throughout the day."
