was not drawn from tho Treasury, tho
fact of the transaction being prematurely
revealed, nnd tin act of Congress being
promptly passed, after a sealhlng exposure
of tho fraud by Mr. Dawk of Masriicliii

One of the ino.t striking circumstances

down to tho pri-cnt moment, the I'ost
Olllee Coininlttee of either the House or

Tile only reason forcondiict so asliml'tilng
would iii'in to be the certainty Hint In

nearly, and etidanger too much that party
predominance which some men regard as

Hut one of the most vexatious nuisances to
which we are subjected Is tho sweeping and
stirring up of dust 111 thu streets nt all hours
of the day b private parties whenever the
notion takes them. Theionro portions of
tho clt j which are not regularly sprinkled
thiitnio luaile intoletablo to pedestrians,
ns well 'is to families, who do not want
their furniture covered with Itlthy dust by
this foolish practice. The dirt had better

stilled up Into clouds. And thu pmellco
seems to be contagious. No sooner has 0110

In advanco of him. Tho moro pra. t lacd eye of
Chatillon.tho guide, soon dlcovered Its real na
ture. " Indian," he said. "Old Smoke's bids'!,
1 believe." Chatlllon was right. It was tho vil
lage of Old Smoke, a Dakota chief well known
to him. Not long nftcr a black speck became
visible on the prairie, full two miles off. It grow
larger and larger, and soon a naked In
dian was dl-ccmcd careering at full pnl
lop toward the travellers. The Indian
approached nftcr tlio customary tormnt
Itie, nnd proved to be an acquaintance
of the guide. Ho wns a joung fellow of no nolo
In Id nation, yet a Due specimen of tho Dako
ta warrior hi Ids ordltnry travelling rtrr,
which conalilrd prelly much of nil entire ab
sence of clothing. Like most of hi people he
was nearly six foet high, llthely and gracefully
yet strongly proportioned, uud with a skin sin
gularly clear and delicate. Ho wore no pilot ;

mcnt and of talisman, the mystlo whUtle,
mado of the wiry bones of the war eagle.
From the back of his head descended a
line of glittering bras plates tapering from
the elzo of a doubloon to that of a half
dime. Ills chest and arms were naked ;
the buffalo robe worn over them wheu
at rest had fallen about hi wa'st, and
wa.i confined thero by n belt. This, with
the gay moccaslus on his feet, completed Id
attire. For arm be carried a quiver of dog
skin at his hack, and a rude hut powerful
bow In his hand. Ills hore had no bridle. A
cord of hair lashed around his Jaw served In
plico of one. At noon the party reached a
creek, where the main body of Hie Indian had
formed n temporary encampment, which cov
ered several acre of ground. Mr. Parkman In
vited several of the chiefs and warriors to din
ner, and amicable lelatlons were at onco cstati
liahed, notwithstanding that a friendly proposal
made by one of tho savage bearing Hie name of
tho Hog, to barter one of hi daughters for ono
of Parkman's hores, was rejected. A few miles
more of travel brought the party to Fort Laramie.
The summer of listo was a season of warllko
excitement among alt the Wetern bands of the
Dakotas. In lst.1 they encountered great re--Vtr'-..iljiie,,wiir.liarties.hjd

some of them had been cut oil and others had
returned broken and disheartened, so that thu
whole nation was In mourning. Among the rest
ten warrior had gone to the Snake country, led
by the muof a pruiiilnent Ogallallah chief, called
the Whirlwind. In passing over Larainlo Plains
they encountered a superior number of their
enemies, were surrounded, and killed to it

Snakes became alarmed, dreading tho resent

long before the scalp arrived, had made hi
preparations for revenge. Ilo sont messenger

within ttirt'O hundred inllos, proposing n grand
combination to chastise tho Snakes, and when
Mr. Parkman airlved at Fort Laramie many vil
lages, probably embracing live or six thousand
soul, wcro alowly creeping over the prairies and
tending toward the designated rendezvous at
La ilouti's camp on the Platte, lloru their war
like rites were to be celebrated with more than
ordinary solemnity, and a thousand wurrlors, It
was said, were to set out for tho enemy's coun
try. Mr. Parkman wit greatly rejoiced with this
Intelligence. He had funic Into the country
cblclly with n view of observing the Indian
character, uud he determined to Join a village,
ni.tke hliiiaelf an Inmate of one of their lodges,
und live la the midst ot thorn.
After mini) provoking dela)S and mishaps Mr.
Paikinan was enabled to carry out his design.
Ills companion. Shaw, In the menu time hud
been taken III and gone to Fort Lanuule, where
bo was to await the return of hi comrade. 'I he
general renihv.vnu at Ui Home's camp failed of
accomplishment, uud the proposed combination
against the Snake was not carried Into execu
tion; but .Mr. Parkmaii, at last, found himself
the Inmate ot the best lodgo In an Ogallahl lit
village, whose warriors wore bout 011 the slaugh
ter of buffalo rather Ihau of Snakes. He was
well received by the Indian, but was set upon
by nil the enrs In tho village, who manifested
the most violent dislike, to him. lVr this ho
took 11 satisfactory revenge. Ono largo white
dog which w a particularly offensive In Its mani
festations of enmity ho purchased of its owner,
and then hud It killed, cooked, uud served up us
11 feast to the whole village.
With this village of Sioux Mr. Tarkmau Joined
In tho buffalo hunt, which was attended with
entire success. The attack 011 the first large
herd they encountered was an exciting event.
The Iudlane assailed tho animals on both sides
at once. Each hunter, as If by a common lm- 1
pule, sprang forward, and, all scattering In
tho ihargo In order to anll tlio entire herd nt
uncc, they rushed headlong upon the buffalo.
Amid tho trampling nnd thu yell dark figures,
could bo scon running hither and thither through
the clouds of dust, and the horsemen darting III
pursuit. Tho uproar and confusion lasted but a 1
moment. The dust clcnrcd away uud the buffalo
could bo seen scattering us from n common cell- I
tro, tl)iug ovei tho plain singly or In long flies j
and small, compact bodies, while behind them '

Into their side. Tho carcasses were strewn '
thickly over tho ground. Hero and there ',
stood wounded buffalo, their bleeding sides
feathered with arrows; nnd as the hunters ,
rodo near them their eyes would glare, 1
and they would feebly attempt to charge ,
their enemies. Tho slaughter over, scores
of carcasses wcro seen lying on tho plain, In tho
ravines, and on tho sandy bed of tho stream.
Far away In tlio distance horsciiioii and buffalo '
were still scouring along, with clouds of dust
rising behind them, and over tho sides of the
hills long Dies of frightened animals wcro rapidly
ascending. Tho hunters began to return, and
tho work ot Haying and cutting up was In
progress nil over tho field. Mr. l'arkman saw
Ids host draw from u buffalo which ha had killed
an arrow which, with tho exception uf tho notch
at the end, had entirely disappeared In tho ani
mal, such bad been the forco and doxtcrity with '
which It had been sped from tho bow.
In a few day tho Indians had raptured and
prepared by drying an ample store of ment.
They had also procured buffal ) hldos In suuiiicnt
quantities for making tlio next season's lodges.
It remained to provide tho long poles on which,
they were to bo supported, and these-wcro only
to ho bad among tho toll spruce woods of the
lllat-k Hills. Thither tho village wended Its wny,
nnd there Mr. Pnrkmnn found newscenes of wild
Interest and experienced now and rare adven
tures. In the Illack Hills bo discovered tho
hunter's paradise, The oik, tho nntelopo, tho
" big born " and t ho black-tailed deer abounded
there, and our traveller hunted them with most
satisfactory results, the possibility of encounter
ing hostile Indian In his progres adding excite
ment to tho situation. Hut tho 1st of August
was approaching, thu date which Mr. Parkman
had appointed for meeting his comrade, Shaw,
at Fort Laramie, and he was obliged to leave
theso happy hunting grounds. At tho fort ho
found his friend, fully recovered, nnd together

with abundant Incidents, but no mishaps. Al
though they hnd been travelling for flvo month
through a country where they were every mo

been ono old mule, bitten by a rattlesnake.
Three weeks after they reached tho frontier hos
tilities began, and for the next six months every
party, large or small, that passed over the trail
they hnd taken was attacked by the Indian.

Mr. Win. F. Kliitzlng, counsel for Malono, has

by reason of tho failure to procure tho attend-

reneh of tho suhpirna clerk of tho District At

the homicide, us developed at the Inquest held
bv Coroner Keenan, are substantially as follow s 1
Patrick Malono and Tin una O'Connor hoarded
with Michael Crowley st iv."i E it i hlrty-foiirtli
street. On llio night of October t, last, they
quarrelled, about what is not known, but thu
question nt Issue finally wa as to who wa tho
best man. Tills they ngrccd to settle by a Unlit
on tlio following morning. In pursuance nt this
agreement they started out early on tlio morn
ing of tho loth, accompanied by witnesses whose
names were not ascertained, nnd went down to
the toot of Last Thlrtv-fourth street. There
tney stripped to tho waist, taking off even their
shirts, and shook hands In truo P, It. style.
Then they squared off, and Hie combat began.
O'Connor stooped and grabbed for.Malono'sleg.
1 Malono Jumped aside, and caught hi antagonist
by tho shoulders, nnd as he attempted to rise
with his baiii toward Mslone, his feet were
knocked from under him, and lm was thrown on
his In ad.
I The witness, Piatt, who cannot now be found,
swore that while O'Connor wa (litis prostrate,
Malono kicked blin twice, but thl testimony
was not corroborated by John Walsh, a boarder
In tho samo house, wlin wa hastening to tliu
scene to prevent the fight, nor by Mr. Crow oy,
the keeper of the bouse, who was with Wnlsh.
All agreed, however, that O'Connor, nftcr hi
head struck Hie pavement, cried out that his
neck wa nut uf Joint, and asked to have hi
head pulled to put it lu Joint. In compliance
with this icq ic.t. Matone look hold of O'Con

his demurrer was not u confession of guilt. Ho
had road a portion of bis answer. In which h
