-The will of the miser Fox. who died In a New
Tork garret in January last, after leading a Ufe of
misery, squalor and solitude, leaving two hun?
dred thousand dollars to the United States Gov?
ernment and nothing to his relatives, has been
presented for probate and will be contested by
lus only next of kin, the Infant nieces of a de?
ceased brother. The case will, doubtless, before
the litigation in regard to it has come to an end,
attract considerable public attention. The testa?
tor many years ago was a dealer in boots and
.shoes and made considerable money, and during
the war speculated In various ways, realizing
Handsomely ia every venture. In June, 1804, he
made his will, giving all his earnings to the gov?
ernment, making no mention whatever of his rcla
tires. Scvtr.il months subsequent to this event he
went to live in Third avenue, taking oneof the
smallest and meanest apartments that he could
find in one of his own tenant houses. He dressed as
.though he had not a cent in the world and could
not get one Jf he begged for it, and no one was
allowed to approach him In his contracted quar?
ters. He did his own cooking, made his own bed
-a miserable old tick ou a shaky old bedstead
and In fine, lived thc life of the most wretched of
misers. In January he was found dead in his
-room, and it was not nntll the production of the
will and thc finding of deeds of property lu his
.room that his wealth was brought to light. This
-wealth, it is said, consists or several houses in
Third avenue and other parts of the city, and a
?real deal of land In the West, all of which
amounts to the value or about $200,000.
-The bloody raid and merciless punishment or
?he Piegan tribe of Indians is graphically de?
scribed by a Montana correspondent. This tribe
4s composed of portions of the Bloods, Plcgans
and Blackreet nations. Although theloutrages of
?he indians had been freqnent.lt is believed by
-many Inhabitants that thc summary extermina?
tion or s. whole band by Baker's cavalry was cruel
and unjustifiable. The United States troops num?
bered 380. On thc 23d ultimo the Indian village,
oonsliting of forty-four lodges, was discovered I
and surprised near Marias River. The colonel's
immediate command commenced the fight, and
wIth terrific yells the soldiers dashed upon the
enemy. The attack was sudden and vigorous,
and the scene presented was one of frightful
reality. The hide-covered lodges were ripped
with knives by thc soldiers, and many a bullet
passing through the opening thus made
laid low the braves within. The uproar
was deafening. The sounds or firearms ;
yells of the infuriated soldiers ; yells and
death cries ?f thc redskins; the barking and how?
ling or the Iudian dogs, all mingliug, made the
scene one or terrible interest. The camp was cap
tured;the regulars had wiped out their savage
roes completely, and encamped for the night on
the scene of their butcheries. Among the princi?
pal chiefs slain were Bad Bear, Wolf's Tall, Heavy
Runner, Red Horn, Mountain Chief's son, and
others equally prominent. Six or thc Plegans ran
over a hill on the right bank ol the river, and es?
caped from the main command; but their evil
star guided them to a point where a Tew soldiers
were guarding the captured herd, and soon these
Indians also lay stitT on the ground. Nothing
now remains to show the existence or the Piegan
village, save blackened spots were the lodges and
stores were destroyed by Ure, ghastly corpses
strewn around, ravens flitting to and fro, and
hungry wolves snarling and snapping over their
A Colored Man for Congress.
In view of the approaching election to fill
the vacancy occasioned by the disgraceful
exit of the carpet-bagger Whittemore, from
the National Legislature, the colored Repub?
licans are very naturally asking the question,
why it is that in Soutli Carolina, the State
where the preponderance of the black voters
is largest, and where, iu fact, the Republi?
can party would have no existence at all but
for the negroes, no United States office has
yet been given to a colored man. Parson
Cain, in one of bis lucid intervals, calls at?
tention in the Missionary Record, of last
week, to the striking fact that out of the
j very large number of fat Federal place3 in
the gift of the dominaut party in this State,
only one-and that the most insignificant,
the postmastersbip of Columbia-has yet
been vouchsafed to a member of the race,
which has given to that party all the power,
honesty and brains which it can boast in the
The choice of a successor to Whittemore
will give the colored people a chance of
proving whether, at this late da)', they lack
the intelligence to comprehend, or the man?
hood and independence to grasp what, ina
party sense, is indisputably their due. The
Yankee parson who volunteered to repre?
sent them in Cougress, after selling to some?
body from the North the cadetsbip which, in
common decency and gratitude, he should
have held out as a noble prize to the most
proficient among thc colored youth of his
district, has been ignominiously driven from
Iiis seat, and declared by the unanimous
voice of a Republican House, to be unwor?
thy of the confidence and support of the
people. And yet this man sneaks back to
the State he has disgraced, and, exalting in
the ignorance of those whom he has so foully
wronged, declares in public that he will com?
pel them to send him back to Washington,
and so to indorse and perpetuate the infamy
which his own party has so clearly fastened
Will the colored Republicans of the First
Congressional District submit to this dishon?
or? Will they, while they have among them in?
telligent and capable men of their own race,
who have always been true to them and to
the party, say in effect to Congress, that they
can find no better representative of the Re?
publicans pf South Carolina than the per?
jured Massachusetts parson, who has just
been kicked from the threshold of the capi?
tol ? Let Rainey and thc rest, the real Re?
publican leaders on the seaboard, answer
the question. The problem is for the Radi?
cals to solve, and need give their opponents
no special concern. "It is none of our fune?
ral ! " _
Lectures on \ nt ural History.
The course of conversational lectures, pro?
posed by Professor Holmes, is announced by
an advertisement in another column, to com?
mence this afternoon at the Lyceum Hall, at
5 o'clock. To those ladies and gentlemen
who have taken tickets we promise a most
agreeable intellectual treat. An old and ex?
perienced teacher has remarked, on the im?
portant relation of natural history to intel?
lect as an educating power, that "its study
"is tlie true method of economizing time in
"education, for wheu other books must be
"closed, the book of Nature is open: it
' teaches you to treat of real things and not
"of mere names; its subjects of thought meet
"the eye in our strolls of pleasure, in our
"hurried walks, and as we rest by the way
"side. Thc meanest flower that blooms, the
"humblest snail that crawls, or the smallest
"grain of sand on the lap of earth, has, to
"the opened eye, a beauty that is like a halo
"of glory around it." ilTAe study of Na
"ture is a -perpetual delight" The walls of
the Lyceum Hall are embellished with beau?
tiful diagrams and paintings, and Hie tallies
on the stage contain interesting specimens,
which are used by Hie Professor to illustrate
A remarkable speech was delivered by the
Hon. John Quincy Adams, of Massachusetts,
at the dinuer given by the Constitutional
Club in Boston on Washington's Birthday.
He boldly declared that the Radicals in Con?
gress had grossly abused their powers; that
to perpetuate their party they had leagued
together to destroy the constitution. "I
"mean to say," added Mr. Adams, "andi
"say it with a sense of responsibility, that
"to-day there is nothing of the old constitu?
tion o? our fathers left to us, except what
"was alwa3Ts understood and believed by
"them to bo a mere incident of constitu?
tional power, and that is this war power."
* * * "Tlie old constitutional edifice of
"the fathers was built of the white marble of
"the States, which they brought together
"voluntarily 03 a work of love, and piled up
"there one by one, each in pride and delight,
"adding stone after stone to the beautiful
"and symmetrical edifice under which we
"all live. [Applause.] But what is this I
"thing which we uow see there iu Washing?
ton ? Is that built of those stones ? Is that
"put together by any such bands as those
"which cemented the old capitol? Why, gen?
tlemen, it is built of the volcanic lava, hot
"yet from the results of the outpouring of
"the mount [applause], and it is clamped
"together by great bauds of black, rusted,
"iron fetters. [Applause]. It's no such
"edifice at all; and now we have in tlie
"Presidential chair a mau who, when lie
"swears to protect and defeu l and preserve
"the constitution, seems to think that thia i3
"the constitution which ho sweara to pre?
Alluding to a proposition which was made
in the Massachusetts Legislature, a few days
before, to fire a hundred guns on Boston
Common in honor of the passage of the
Fifteenth amendment, Mr. Adams said: "I
"was only sorry that I \vn3 not in the Legis?
lature to propose, as an amendment to it,
"that the United States be humbly solicited
"to allow the State of Massachusetts to fire
"that salute from Fort Warren and that the
"guns might be shotted, in order to show
"the process by which the amendment had
When we hear words like these, uttered
in the very hotbed of Radicalism, by the lips
of the youngest, most progressive and most
distinguished of the living statesmen of New
England, it would seem that the day of the
popular awakening to the political perils of
the times cannot be far distant.
Ix announcing the fact that tito colored
senator, Revels, had been placed upon the
Senate Committees of Educatiorrand Labor,
the New York Harald observes: "What he
"will do on the Educational Committee is
"doubtful, but we should think he would be
"a shining light and a splendid working
"member on the Labor Committee. Proba?
bly he will be put in charge of a sub-com
"inittee on cotton-picking, to work during
"THANK GOD, my constituents can't read!"
was the devout ejaculation of the Reverend
Representative Whittemore, when the re?
port of the committee, in his case, was laid
before the House.
THE Boston Post wants to know whether
the Honorable B. F. Whittemore drew bis
mileage back to South Carolina !
