Washington, Juno 23.?Tho following
despatch has been received at the. Indian
Bureau from Prof. Janney, dated Camp
on French Creek, near Harnev's Peak,
June 17, 1875:
To the Hon. E. P. Smith: I have dis?
covered gold in small quantities on the
North bcrid of Castle (/reek, in terraces
or bars of quartz gravel. Arrived hero
yesterday. About fifteen miners have
located camp on the creek above here,
and have commenced working. Gold is
found from Castle Creek Southward to
French Creek at this point, and the de?
posits are almost wholly in Cacotah. The
region has not been fully explored, but
the yield of gold thus far has been quite
small, and the reports of tho richness of
the gravel bars are greatly exaggerated.
On French Creek tho deposits of gravel
are very unfavorably situated, the water
supply is small and failing, and tho
grade too little to admit of tho tailings
being carried oft' by tho stream. The
prospect at present is not such as to war?
rant extended explorations in mining.
New York, Juno 24.?Tho steamship
Andes, at this port from Maraeaibo,
brought further particulars concerning
the recent terrible earthquake, which
destroyed the town of Cucuta, in Now
Granada. From a person who had
reached Maraeaibo from Cucuta, shortly
before tho steamer sailed, it was learned
that tho Ions of life and proporty was
much greater than at first supposed.
Cucuta and all the surrounding villages
within the radius of twenty miles wero
completely destroyed by the severity of
tho shock. Many serious losses of life
and property were also occasioned by
the rain and by bands of robbers, who
organized immediately after tho shock
had passed away, for the purpose of
plundering. The custom house and
cofieo warehouses, situntod in Los
Cachos, were first attacked by tho ma?
rauders, but they wero driven off before
nny serious damago had been done by
them, and forces have been organized in
most of the neighboring cities and towns
and sent to tho scene of the disorder,
for tho purpose of protecting the lives
and property of those who had escaped
the effects of tho shock.

Washington, June 24.?Tho Secretary
of tho Treasury has called in $5,000,000
of tho fourth series, dated May 1, 18G2,
upon which the interest ceases on Sep?
Probabilities?For the Gulf and South
Atlantic States, stationary pressure and
temperature, South-west to South-east
winds, clear and partly cloudy weather.
Tho mails for the "Navy Department
from the South Atlantic States have not
yet arrived, though they are hourly ex?
pected; therefore, the department has no
official advices of the existence of yellow
fever on United States vessels in those
waters. A private letter, received here
to-day by an officer of the navy, from a
brother officer at Bio, dated May 23, re?
ports that the yellow fever was raging at
that place, and the number of deaths
daily was from fifteen to twenty. During
the first half of March, 192 deaths were
reported on tho United States steamer
Lancaster. Surgeon Denby and Assist?
ant Surgeon Fassig died?the former on
the 3d of April, at Bahiu, Brazil, but the
date of the death of the latter is not men?
tioned. There had been much sickness
on board of that vessel.
On the Brooklyn, several cases of fever
were reported, and two sailors died in
April. She arrived at Rio on tho 20th
of May, and was then reported by the
surgeon in good sanitary condition.
There were a few cases on the Monon
gahela, but no deaths mentioned. When
she left Rio, several officers and seamen
remained in tho hospital on shore, but
all had recovered except Assistant Sur?
geon Waugh. It was expected he would
soon bo able to start for home.
Work on the public buildings at Chi?
cago has been stopped, on account of
the unfavorable report of the committee
regarding the foundation and material.
The Indian Bureau does not credit
the report that all the Sioux are on tho
war-path. They believe that neither
Spotted Tail's or Red Cloud's men are
engaged in anv warlike demonstrations,
and feel confident that if any Sioux are
mixed up with the lawless movements,
that it is only a few roaming raiders,
who are not under the control of those
chiefs, and it would hardly be fair to
hold the Sioux, as a nation, responsible
for any raids or depredations committed
by theHe lawless bands.

An Eccentric Russian Count.?It may
he perhaps new to many to learn that the
late Comto Paul Demidoff, whose wealth
was immense, passed for a savage at St.
Petersburg. He lived quite alone. He
never allowed his servants to handle any?
thing intended for him unless they were
gloved, and his valets had to wear gloves
when dressing him. He even washed
the bank notes in a golden vase, ami
hung thehi up to dry on a line, as would
a laundry-maid her linen, before putting
them into his pocket-book. An attaches
of the French Embassy on one occasion
dined with the Comte, and when tea was
served in tho Salon, he was so occupied
in a discussion on magnetism*, that he
unconsciously placed his hand in the
sugar-bowl when handed to him by the
servant, and took a morsel of sugar; the
Comte called the servant and ordered
him to throw the bowl and its contents
out of the window; the attachee was the
least disconcerted among the consterned
company, and when the discussion was
over, he quietly finished his tea, and,
approaching the window, slowly threw
cup, saucer and spoon out, apologizing
to tho Comte that ho was not aware such
was the custom of the house. That at?
tachee is now the new cnibnssador to
The train boys think they haven't
much of an opportunity in this world.
One of them tells the New Orleans
Picayune that there is but one way in
which they can impose upon their em?
ployers: "You see each boy is furnished
with just so much fruit, so many books
and papers, and he is either obliged to
show them up at the end of the route or
else turn over the money for which they
have been sold. The only way it can be
done is this: We sell a book, say, to a
passenger for a dollar and a half. He
roads it and then we give him a new
book worth fifty cents for the one he has
read. He is generally willing to make
the exchange, and reads the new one.
This, when finished, he is ready to swap
tjpr a ten-cent paper, which paper he
leaves in the car when he gets out. This
paper we pick up and put back in our
pile, having all our books and papers
and SI.50. That is about the only show
we have: without it. wo could not make
a decent living."
