Ben Butler bu succeeded in effecting

but in attempting to bully the public into
r-aulascenee in the back pay steal, he hi
undertaken a task in which all his effron
tery. Insolence, evasions ana quibbles win
..il him nolblne. Ills defence ot tbe
measure in congress failed to commend
n..ir to Dubllc aDoroval. and bis constltu
enta bave individually intimated as much
to him. His silly manner of meeting such
mmonatrances bv enclosing a three-cent
lunn to each remonstrant would have
baan Bolntless. even It were original. As
historical fact the retort is an invention
of the Frankfort Rothschild, as long ago
aa 1848. During the revolutionary agita
tion of that year in Germany a couple of
ferocious socialist are reported to bave
fomad their way into tbe office of the
rrut banker, and insisted on.an itnuedl
ate distribution of bis effect. He asked
them how much he was supposed to be
worth, and they told him, "Forty million
florins." A there were about forty mill
ions of German to ibare in the division,
tbe banker told his visitors that their
(bar would be a florin apiaco, which he
h.nrful them, to their contusion .
The point be made was a very goo d
hut it uttarlv failed in its attempted
appllsatlon to tb spirit which looks on

However, a Butler recognizes tbe right

The following was received to-day at
San Francisco :
Hdq'e Modoc Exmditios, 1
Camp South Tcli, April 18. r
The day opened warm and still, but was
ushered in by a roar of musketry, and an
occasional booming of a Howitzer. Col.
Mason's camp is at Hospital rock, on tbe
north aide of Cept." Jack' posltion.dlrectly
under that famous strong-hold. Col. Gil
lem, who had been waiting for tbe arrival
of bis stores and the Warm Spring In
dians, issued orders yesterday for tents to
I struck, and drawn In a compact
place near the boipltal, and for tbe troops
to be supplied with three days' rations
and 100 rounds of ammunition. Next for
tbe cavalry to be ready to move at - a.m.
to-day, and for Col. Mason on the opposite
side of the Lava,beds to move at tbe same
hour on the enemy. Col. Perry and
Llut. Cress, of the cavalry, were
to move on a point oeyona
tbe main cavalry, and conceal themselves
till joined in the morning by the infantry
and artillery. It was hoped wnen tne iai
ter compnles left camp, the Modocs
would obierve,and in attempt to cut tbem
off, fall Into the hands of the cavalry.
Their movement were faithfully exe
A Modoc, who was under guard as prUo-
r.ar nf r cleaned at midnight, ue
leaped past the guard and escaped, though
many shots were fired at him. At aay
light wo heard a fusliade on the opposite
side of the Lava bed. 1 know Col. Meson's
force, or hi skirmishers were engaged.
At six o'clock wa heard tbe boom
of Howitzer, and saw
Over Capt. Jaek't camp. Atthistime
the rock were swarming with Indians,
and firing was rapid, lb plan of the
battto was fron tbe North sldo. Col. Ma
ion was to advance his command on tbt
right, and theWarm Spring Indians
on his left, clrcleing up along
tbe ledge, united with the right of the
troops from this side, leaving only the
lakes for the Modocs' escapo, Lieut
Rmh. was in camD In char ire or arms
.munition. Capt. Tumbell of the
,, ,, 20 men wa. left In
charge of the camp on this side. Col. Gil-

taround us. Fronuthe loll point our iklr
ml. tin.. nn till ma arrived at abort
rani?o. when a Sovero voney was
fired from tho bluff, evidently
there boing twenty-five or thirty
Indians posted H ero. The flro was heavy.
After standing 15 minutes an order for a
charge waigiveri, and the men sprang
forward amid the tnoit deafening yell
from the Modocs. Such was tho rapidity
of tbe onslaught, and so unexpected, tho
troops weru on them before they knew
It, mid in a few minutes
was maslcr.of tho situation, and our brave
boyl behind tho rocks retting at their leis
ure. Col. Gillom sent an order to Col.
Mason to stir thorn up on hi side, and he
let Into them with vengeance, distracting
' their attention, and uiatorta'.ly assisting
our troops. Tbe charge was
a gallant one. Meanwhile wo
extracted our wounded None kilted.
So did all engaged. Capt. Kg on was
wounded in tho arm, but would not leave
the field. O'Conner, private of battery
M tb artillery, was shot in tho leg, a flesh
wound. Private J. Donly, battery K I th
artillery was shot In tho arm. Corpornl
E. Killisb battery K 4th artillery,

P. McManus of McConnoll 4 McManus,
merchants at Yrokii, ventured within the
advaaco line ahead of Capt. Miller, who
carried the bluff under orders in gallant
style. Tbe reserve lino was a short dis
tance from tho high bluffs.
Tbe lines are 160 yards apart, and the
ground is uncovered. Whon tbu Modocs
arrive the bluff will be shelled and be re
covered At 2 p.m. orders were given
Tbe mortars, -Moj. Thomas commanding.
Lieut. Cranston Howe, fourth artillery
and Sergt. Romor, compose a party of
as gallant a set as ever bandied gun. At
4:30 a line was deployed down to the
lake on tbe opposite sldo of Jack's camp.
They crossed tbe intervening spaco
Without receiving a sbst. They aro now
in readiness to charge on the bluffs when
tho mortars bave done their work. The
mortars have arrived on the ground. All
quiet till 5:30, when a suddon and
Rattled along Mason' lino, and continued
several minutes. No one killed or
wounded. The pack train of the
w'abm sPHixa'a '
Has just arrived with "u mules and 160
horses. At 7:50 p.m., the first sbot from
tbe mortars planted shells fair in the
bluff. A few
SHELLS WIUL T11HOW.V,
Going well in part of the Lsva bed, ap
parently doing good work. Our line now
extends from under the bluff where Jack's
cave is, up tbe lodge nearly a mile. Tho
bluff was carried by Miller, who had the
bridge intervening between the men and
the main plateau. Now six mortars are
being forwarded, and we aro ready to
SCALE TOE IlEiallT.
Col. Meson's line has not buon broken.
By to-morrow we shall be with the Warm
Spring Indians, and bave tbe red fiends
encircled with the lake left to them
for escape. Reports of dead and wounded
will not arrive to-day. From appearance
it seems the lake shore and the bluffs have
been cleared by the Indians. Col. Mason
says our men are steadily advancing
without receiving any shots, and they
ill probably hold tbe low rocks for
cover till morning.
Tho Modocs' position Is the samo as tlioy
occupied yesterday evening. A
HOT CONTESTED TIOUT
Took place on Col. Greon'sjo.t, this morn
ing. Tbe Indians endeavored to reach
the lake for water, but our troops kept
kept them awy. A dlipatch was rocelved
from Mason's camp this morning, saying
some Modocs passed out on tho loft near
bis flank, during tho night. Tho mortar
under the command of MaJ. Tbomss kept
up a flro on tbe Modoc camp,which kept
VEKY JIL'CU WOllRIEn.
The Indians could be heard yelling and
shoutinc at an awful rate. At - this a.m.
the troops under Col. Green wero orderod
to move forward from the position tnoy
hAlil ilnrlnL- the nicht. Tbo whola lino
started with cbcors. lloforo 10 o.m
tint? hid reached the ton of tho
ridge next to Captain Jack's camp, wmcu
was so hotly contested yesterday. The
Indians wure nearly dUtractei to-day
when our men gained Ibis position. Oth'
ars could be beard along the whole lino,
Orders were then given to sweep the Lava
bsd. A dispatch sent to Capt. Bernard,
ordering him to
CIU8K THE M0II0CA
Who had got out on Col. Mason's left, and
lu nunue tbem immediately with the cav
.i.v and cive them no rest, n iw
. . . . . ...
vinplt this mornine our troops have
gained conidorablo ground, and firing is
becoming more gonoral. Tho Improsslon
prevails that the Lava bods are ours.
Orders have been given for Col. Mason to
move his right iorward rapidly, possibly
to Join Col. Green' left. This will
CUT TUE MODOC OIT.
From 10 to 12 o'clock there was con-
lderablo firing from soutu lako. uniy a
part of the Modocs could have got out on
Uuon'i left, and Indians can bo heard In
tbe vicinity of Jack's cavo. Tbe mortars
which havo coased since daylight, bave
been ordered to a ntw position, within 800
Green and Mason's
a junction, which left
MODOCd WITUOLT WATER.
After this movotnent occasional firing Is
heard at different parts of tbe line. It
was decided not to push our men on the
Indians stronghold, as We might lose
many, .without killing an Indian. If we
could keep them from water they would
havo to leave their position. We could
not find thorn on a stronger plan.
In two days havo been f killoJ, and 10
wounded. The only officer yet wounded
is Lieut. Egan, a flish wound in the left
leg. He is doln; well. Tho junction has
been formed between Green's and Mason's
left. Five Indians are reported killed.
WE .HAVE ROME SCAI.ra.
None of our killed or wounded havo
yet fallen Into the Indians' handf. It Is
evident if our men can hold their position
on the lake iLoro Mr. .Modoc will havo to
leave or suireoder. Heavy firing of
musketry near the Jako shore. Tbe In
dians evidently are
rioiiTiNO ron watku.
Every ono who has seun our troops in
action speak of thim in tho highest terms.
ANOTHER COL'KXXIt ARRIVED.
Yreka, April 1U. Castella, a special
courier, arrived at noon. Left headquar
ters at Lava bed at nine o'clock last nigbl.
Yestorday tbo Modocs had a big flro in
camp. .MaJ. Thomas
DROfPED A 811 El. I.
Into it, proving a frantic war whoop.
After a sudden extinguishing of tbo tiro
another shell was dropped in tbo same lo
cality, followed by yells of pain. Tho
Modocs then appeared and
CHALLENGED THE SOLDIER
To come out and fight, whon another
sbcli was th answer. They were driven
back in another fight. The Modocs
The attempt to break through the lines
and retired. Shots were fired at men who
attempted to advance on them. At tl
Col. Glllcm's command moved forward
from the position gained Tucsday,and toon
occupied tho ledgo next to Jack's
camp. Mason then moved forward as
rapidly as potiiible to Jorca a junction
with Gillom, cutting tbo Modocs off from
the lake, from their only source of water
supply. Tbo junction was effected at
noon. Tbo mortars are throwing shells
in excellent range. Col. Green fell back
bLind the lodge, awaiting tho Modocs
should the shells drlvo them oit. After
YELLS WERE VHHqUKNT.
On tbe fifth shell there camo a raking
fire, and a small party of men sprang out
of a chasm and came into the liner,)armed
with shoulder bullets. Our fulling back-
was caused by tbo Modocs flanking, and
opening a cross tire. Col. Miller attompted
to form a junctioii with tho Warm Spring
Indians, hut missed them, and as he swung
down in tho chasm, tbe .Modocs
sprang up and cut htm off with 13 men.
Miller fortified hinself, and thoy fought
for the linos till tbe mortars wero opened
with a strong tire, till 4 p.m. When tho
shells began falling in their midst thoy
broko for tho cavo, dashing across tho
ledge, losing 2 men, and one wounded.
The lino was reformed and held their
ground. 745 of Mason's men advanced
on tho Indians seen on the bluff with
a boavy fire. At eight o'clock this morn
ing Cl. Groen's lino made a strong effort
to unite Mason's loft and Groon's right. At
nino this morning, Green's wholo line
moved. Mason, at 9:45 signaled tho
Modocs to loave tbo lava bed. Tbo cav
alry was ordered to pursue, and at balf
pasl eleven, half an hour later, thero was
On tho Modocs' stronghold. At 1:30 tho
Warm Spring Indians report throe more
good Modocs, making four to-day. Nine
p.m. A terrible tiro has just ceased. The
Modocs tried to break through to the lake.
It is the Intention to kocp
tho line to prevent them
from getting wator. There will be sovere
fiehtlne beforo tho works aro carried.
It is almost irnposslblo to tea an Indian.
The Warm Spring Indians fought like
heroes, ever ready to take any advantage.
