Important Legal Decision.
A case of importance, ns showing
the holdings of the Federal Courts
teaching the responsibility of Confed?
erate officers before the civil tribunals
for military acts clone in obedience to
the orders of their superior officers,
?was recently decided in the First Dis?
trict Court of New Orleans:
In accord n-e with the writ of
habeas corpus . s sued from this Court
on Saturday, Mr. John Burke pro?
duced in Court the body of Robert
Lynne, and showed cause why lie had
arrested hint, namely: affidavits rep?
resenting him as gi4?Hy of several high '
crimes. Two gentlemen testified that
Mr. Lynne hid hoon an officer under?
the Confederate Government, and;
that he had power to shoot summarily !
jayhawkers. It was contended that :
Roy. one of the persons shot, had not ,
l>een a jayhavker. The oath of aile- :
giance, and also the amnesty oath j
taken by Capt. Robert. Lynne, were
tiled. The affidavit of Capt. Robert
Lynne deposes that in thc early part
of the year 18(>3, being then in the
Parish of Avoy elles, he received from
General Richard Taylor, department i
commander, through his immediate ;
military superior, orders to collect in
carap all conscripts in said Parish; I
and that in e?tse of armed resistance, I
that all men so found with arms in
their hands should be executed sum?
marily. These orders were captured
with his baggage at Staunton, Va.,
and he himself was taken prisoner and
kept in confinement, and it is impos- :
sible for hint now to produce said
orders frofti his superiors, in conse- j
* quence yf tho capture of the records
of the.Confederate Government.
The Attorney-General, Mr. Lynch,
made an allie speech to show that Mr. !
Ray, who, it seems, was shot by order
of Capt. Lynne, during tho prevalence .
of Confederate ride in thc Parish of !
A voyelles, was not a j'ayhawker, there- j
fore the caso of Capt. Lynne does not
come within the protection extended
by the laws of war to recognized bel?
ligerents; that a Confederate grand
jury had preferred charges against
Capt. Lynne. On the conclusion of
the Attorney-General's speech, the j
counsel for Capt. Lynne submitted the '
case to the Judge without further ar- j
gument. The Judge thereupon pro?
ceeded to deliver his opinion. The
Court stated, in substance, that it had
been proved Capt. Lynn^> had acted
under orders of his superior officers,
and that the Confederate Government
was a Government de fado at that
time in that Parish; that to make per?
sons amenable in the civil c mrts after
the war was over for acts committed
during a state of war, Avould open so
wide an arena for endless strife that
the consequences would be awful, and
.tend rather to create endless dissen?
sions than that state of harmony that
should now be cultivated; that acting
under any o lier principles, all the
soldiers ot Gen. Lee's army might be
indicted individually; that in the.ex
change of prisoners and other things,
'the United States had -recognized the
Confederate's as entitled to the rights
.of belligerents. He, therefore, order?
ed the release of Capt. Lynne instan?
ter from all the charges preferred
against him, without, however, im?
peaching the motives of the Attorney
General, Mr. Lynch, or those of the
Chief of Police, Mr. Burke, as he be?
lieved they acted from zeid in the dis
, Indian Troubles.
Missourians little know the troubles
to which their brethren aro subjected
from the Indians; while on their way
to peaceful homes in' the North-west
Territories. Speaker Colfax saw some
of the dangers on the road from Den?
ver to Salt Lake, and telegraphed to
Washington for five or six thousand
troops, but they arrived tipo slowly to
give efficient protection To the thou?
sands of pilgrims now on the road.
The friendly Arapahoes, of whom four
or live hundred are camped near, und
fed at Fort Halleck, seem to be the
aggressive parly at present. Feigning
to desire to go South in quest of buf?
falo, seventy or more, warriors drew
six days' rations. Then commenced
the depredations and massacres. In
the very face of the fort, June 27.
they drove off twenty-six head of
stock from Elk Mountain station, and
on the 3d ult., fifteen more. Passing
down, they cleared off the stock at
Medicine Dow station, and burned
Foote's ranche, blacksmith shop, wa?
gons,-?flour and provisions, and took
one hundred and nine head of stock
belonging to Foote and Elder. There
was a train of one hundred and fifty
wagons "bunched up" near Foote's,
and I saw one poor straggler's dead
body brought in-split open like a log.
The hills wen; black with hostile In?
dians. The consternation and crying
of the women and children wen1
heart-rending. At Rock Creek, twen?
ty-five miles below Fort Halleck, they
appeared three hundred strong.
Having broken up all gold mining
operations in that vicinity, they swept
off eighty-five head of stock, horses,
mules, oxen and cows, the thieves
waving back their owners, unless they
wanted to lose their scalps. Two
soldiers of the 11th Ohio were killed
on Rock Creek fiats. The body of
one of them was mutilated in the most1
shocking manner-feet cut ou", eyes
dug ont, heart taken away and bowels
hanging over the aperture, head
scalped, but the remaining abuses
must be undeseribrd! 1 saved an old
white-bearded gentleman, by his last
chance of escape from Rock Creek, in j
the stage. . I
At Virginia Dalo station. Jim Ennis,
an old hunter, was met by an Indian :
professing to be a '"friendly Rappa- 1
ho," and held in conversation till six i
other savages a] ?peared and shot a '
poisoned arrow through his liver. I
saw him die in four hours-frothing
at the mouth-a most excruciating
death. Now, there has been no !
known provocation for these atroci- j
ties. The Indians say, "If Hie white !
man would keep away tho buffalo
would come again." But the whites
won't keep away. The pacification
policy will not answer. The common
rules of war will not answer. I would
not go for extermination; but nothing
short of a very severe punishment by !
an irresistible army of white troops
will teach thom to behave themselves.
If squaws, abandoning their children j
in their wigwams, stand in tU|jN?ilc
pits to fight us, the ide*.of diserimi- I
nation is absurd. One hundred of !
Col. Chivington's troops had seen j
their own wives and children massa- j
ered and their ranchos burnt. These I
make the soldiers to deal with the
[$/. Louis Democrat.
EMIGRATION TO TIII: IGNITED STATES.

Quebec 187,003. The emigration of | \
Bohemians to the United States was 1
never so large as during the present
season; and the number of emigrants
during this year has so rapidly in?
creased that weekly extra trains have
to be run to bring them in proper time
