Pat Murphy, who, after partaking freely
of double-distilled red-eye, concluded to
take revenge upon a Mr. Johnson, the pro
prietor of a provision store and saloon
Johnson and a man named .brail were
seated in the store, when Murphy, going to
the back window, fired upon the couple.
Murphy then went to the front door, and
fired 'into the store a second time, when
Johnson and Frail drew their pistol", and
commenced returning thetfire, shooting be
tween tbem as many as seven times at Mur
nhv. none of which discharges took effect,
and in the heavy skirmishing all around
there was not even a tleah wound on either

corruptible and honest Agent ofthe
government an assertion .which
unfortunately cannot be safely made
in regard to some Indian agents.
In 1864, and until within a short
ime previous to the Sand creek
massacre, he was in command of
Fort Lyon, and tobkvith him soven
ofthe principal chiefs of the Chey
enne and Arapaho 'nations, includ
ing Black Kettle, to Denvor City,
for the purpose of having an inter
view with Uov. Ji.yana,- oi .vowrauu,
Territory. . This was done in pur
suance or the proclamation' df the
Governor, bfiering protection to nil
peaceable Indians; The Governor
referred the matter to the military
authorities. Returning to Fort Itf

Sians to bring tbeir villages near
tho fort, promising-tnemproiecuon,
after having surrendered meir urjn
and holding them somewhat in the

was Soon after relieved from the
command of the post by Major An
thony, who approved oi tne arrange
ment by which the Indians were to
remain in the vicinity of the post
with their families, and assuring the

ton attacked the Indian camp and

ical outrages. Directly after the
massacre two. hundred bioux went

most of the Cheyennes wbo had es
caped. Col. Wyncoop was sciing
no Tndfnn Ao-ent at the time of the
Wningof the Cheyenne village by
Gen. HancocK on tne rawnee r or.
This was purely a military act, and
has been the sutyect oi mucu com
ment growing out of the light in
whir it is viewed. With a civilized
enemy, familiar with the laws of
war, the act would have been doubt
less justifiable, rue cnieis retused

they were alarmed at the approach
of soldiers. Gen. Hancock consid
ered that the Indians had acted
treacherously, and burned the vil
lage. Col. Wyncoop opposed the
measure, and was firm in the belief
that the soldiers uao commmcu
outrage. The war that subsequent
ly raged on the Smoky Hill route
was rendered moro vindictive than
ever on the, part of the Indians.
CoL Wyncoop, who did all in his
power to prevent the burning ofthe
Indian village, was held in a manner
responsible by tho chiefs, and in sev
eral, instances, came near losing bis
life from their mistaken, resentment.

rated from cacn oiuer. dui a uuai
ear was turned to the appeals of the
agent, the Secretary of the Interior
"claiming that he had no power t& act
in the matter. Had this been done,
tho frinndlv Indians could have qui-
ntTv romovnd to Fort Cobb, on their
I reservation, and Black Kettle, with
liis relatives, a-few lecbteotd men,
been saved from what Col. Wyn
coop has no hesitation in denounc
ifag as a massacre.

seventeen lodges under his contrfel;

The fqllowing incident illustrates
tlie state of Indiaa war now raging
qn the plains: A short tlmc'siiicea
ranchman named Sam. Parker; went
out about two miles from Fort Za
rah to stacksomo hay- He was ac
dompanied by two of his workmen,
all armed. While at work a party
qbmposed of some fiftecH Kiowas
was seen approaching from tlie
prairies, with the intention, .13 was
Subsequently beliovctl, of visiting
tho fort and having.an interview Kith
the commandant. -The men ac wcjrk
ip the hay-field, having a suspicjon
that the Indians were, hostile, fired
lipqp them, when the latter returned
tlie fire, killing the two companions
' At this juncture, Parker seized his
tun and fled towards the brush, with
Sic Indians in full pursuit He fired
upon the Indians and reaching the
brush, ho dropped his rifle, and
crawling into a buffalo walldw was
not discovered by hi3 pursuers. He
reached the fort in safety. On going
qut to where the men were killed,
their bodies were found, decently
laid ont, with their scalps untouched
and clothes not even disarranged.
Near the heads of the two men a
Couple of white flags were planted,
indicating as is tho Indiaa custom
that they did not mean war, but
killed the mon in self defence.

The Ledger of last evening ha3 tho
follo wing in regard to Saturday's tragedy -
Of course the public mind continues io
be agitated by the terrible tragedy en
acted in this city on Saturday morning.
We have no new facts in the case that it
is proper at this time to lay before tba
public. The investigation ia still in pre
hefora tha Coroner's iurv. and no
doubt facts will bo elicited throwing light
npon the dreadful affair, Tho almost
unanimous verdict of tho community is
in condemnation of the act which has
brought so much unjust obloquy upon our
city. And this, so far as wo can learn iS
the feeling everywhere.
The question is on all tongues, How
did these men get here? Who furnished
them transportation? Who paid thair
fare? These are important questions,
and we hope some one will be found to
satisfactorily answer tham. They ouglil
to be answered, and speedily.
Arrest of a Denpernte Murderer.
The subjoined paragraph ia copied frcm
the Louisville Democrat of yeaterday r
RufiM W. Morrow, the man who shot
and killed Dr. Cheatham a few month
ago, in Todd county, near Etkton, was
captured about one week afp, and by order
of the Judge of the Todd Circuit Court,
brought to our jail for safe keeping until
hi3 trial takes place. An old grudge had
existed between the parties, ami Morrow
sought Dr. Cbeatbam and killed him, one
jilght, after which he mounted a boroa and
made hia escape. A reward waa offered
by Gov. Stevenson, and a!o a brother ci
Dr. Cheithani, for Ihe apprehension of
Morrow. We were unable to learn sn
what part of the country he was captured.
