Just ns we go to press tidings are received
regarding the Eastern mail which terribly real
ize the fears we have elsewhere expressed. The
mail was captured by Indians on, Tuesday,
about 25 miles from Apache Pass, and tho
whole party, consisting of Coi. J. F. Stone,
president of the Apache Pass mine, Mr Kaler,
driver, and four soldiers whose names we have
not learned, were massacred. The Indians
then attacked a herd of 200 cattle, only a few
miles distant from the scene of this murder,
killed one of the men in chaige and took
the entire herd. The other men, five in num.
ber, escaped ; they report having teen three
white men ameng the Indians not as prison
ers, but taking an active part with the In
dians. Butwe hae neither time ncr spnee
for comment. These are the lacu terrible
although not altogether unexpected; they are
such as we have been taught to expect from
the characteristic non-protective spirit of
an infamous compact in Washington which
dares to impose itself upon us as a government
which will rjrotect its citizens.
1 "'Tis Plsasaxx ox x Scmmes Eve to Join
the Merry Throng:" And it is pleasant on
anv other evening, us well, or, at least, so it
appeared to us a few evenings since upon being
ushered into the fine, airy apartment adjoining
the Pioneer Brewery, and meeting as wet en
ered, the gaze of some twenty of the brightest,
clearet, prettiest eyes imaginable attracted
to the door by the sound occasioned by our
villainous boots. Wishing all the bookmakers
in America somewhere particularly distant
from the north pole, we started far and reacbe i
a chair in safety, and then, not dating to raise
our lustreh-ss huzels lest they should again
encounter the gaze of the afotesuid constella
tion, waited, in silence for the issue. Now
they come ; tivos. four?, si:;es ; the apartment
is thronged ; music commences; several ladies
and gentlemen occupy the centre of the apart
ment and the dance commences. Away they
whirl, around and around ; all things outside
these walls are forgotten, and each has his, or
her being, in the present. And thus passed
the night until 12 o'clock when one of the
most agreeabl entertainments of the season
was broken up, and the company proceeded to
their various homes.
