A Desperate Battle Between Whites and

A New Orleans dispatch of the 15th says :
The steamboat Southwestern, which arrived
at about 1:30 o'clock this evening, brings stir
ring and important news from want panan.
The whites have retaken Colfax, and there is
not a negro to be found for miles around
From passengers on the Southwestern we
clean the following : The negroes had strong
ly intrenched themselves in the Court-House,
and built breastworks three or four feet high.
There were, it is said, about 400 men, armed
and equipped thoroughly. On Sunday, at
about 12 o'clock, about 150 white men, who
had gathered from surrounding parishes.
made an attack on the breastworks, and a brisk
fight was kept up until somewhere near 3
o'clock. The breastworks were then stormed
and captured, the negroes taking refuge in the
Court-House, the doors of which were barri
caded. After some further fighting the ne
groes threw out a flag of truce, and several
detachments of men advanced on it, when they

none to be found for miles around.
The Captain of the steamboat Southwestern
makes the following statement : " We arrived
at Colfax on Sunday evening about 8 o'clock,
and found that the white people and sheriff's
posse at their head had captured the town,
after having had a conflict with the negroes.
It was reported to me that about 100 negroes

" Mr. Hodnot was shot throngu the bowels.
and it is supposed he is mortally wounded.
We brought Messrs. Harris and Hodnot down
from Colfax .to Alexandria. Three or four
other white men are slightly wounded. About
100 negroes escaped, but it was reported the
whites, were still pursuing them. All of the
leaders of the riot escaped, especially the
white men. The negroes barricaded them
selves in the court-house, and the whites, find
ing there was no other mode of attack left
them, fired the building; The whites number
ed in the neighborhood of 150 men. The
fight lasted from about 12 m. until near 5 p.'

A FEARFUL EARTHQUAKE.
The City of Salvador Entirely Destroyed.
The city of Salvador, in Central America, has
been destroyed by an earthquake. Eight
hundred persons perished, and $12,000,000
worth of property was destroyed. The earth
quake was followed by a conflagration, and
many buildings were burned. The following
are the particulars of this terrible calamity, as
teleerarihed from Havana : For a few days
light shocks of earthquake had occurred, but
no serious apprehensions were entertained.
It was on the afternoon of the 4th of March,
about half -past 4 o'clock, and almost without
warning, that a great part of the city was re
duced to little more than ruins. The ground
heaved like a ship in a gale , a terrific thun
dering burst from under-foot; walls were
shattered and rent in many places with
wide crevices, and roofs sank, and
tiles, etc, were precipitated to the ground.
Lamps, pitchers, basins, glass, etc., were
overturned and broken. Three violent shocks
followed in succession, and the servants
commenced to scream piteouBly and could not
be pacified. Wild birds flew to the houses ;
horses grew frantic in stables, and dogs,
howling, slunk away for protection. Every
few minutes shakings of less violence oc
curred. The scene beggars description.

women- and children, fleeing to the fields
with valuables, hastily collected by them ; the

THE MODOC BUTCHERY.
The Murder of Gen. Canby and Two
Peace Commissioners by Cap. Jack and
A dispatch from the Lava Beds dated April
11 gives the following particulars of the massa
cre of Gen. Canby, Dr. Thomas and Mr.
Meacham by the treacherous Modocs : On
yesterday afternoon five Indians and four
squaws came into our camp and were made
presents of clothing and provisions by the
commission, and a message was sent out by
the commission asking for a talk this morning,
at a point about a mile from our picket line.
Later in the evening Bogus Charley came in,
and told the picket that he could take his gun ;
that he (Charley) did not intend to go back
any more. The picket brought him in and
took him to the tent of Gen. Canby, where
Charley left his gun and remained at the tent
of Frank Kiddle during the night. This morn
ing Boston Charley came in, and told the com
mission that Capt. Jack and five other Indians
would meet the commissioners outside our
. Boston and Bogus then mounted a horse,
and started for the lava bed. About au hour
after their departure Gen. Canby, Dr. Thomas,
Mr. A. B. Meacham nd Mr. Dyer, with Frank
Biddle and his squaw for interpreters, started
for the place appointed. The party arrived at
the appointed place, and were closely watched
by the signal officer, Lieut. Adams, from the
signal station on the hill overlooking our
camp. About half an hour after the party
had arrived, a cry from the signal Btation was
heard, saying that the Indians had attacked
the Peace Commissioners and that an engage
ment had commenced between the Indians and
Col. Mason. In a moment the troops were
under arms, and deployed as skirmishers under
command of Col. Green, and orders were given
to forward double-quick.
Very shortly after Mr. Dyer returned, and
told us that the Indians had attacked them,
and that he thonght that he was the only one
who had escaped, but in a few moments after
Biddle and his squaw were seen within the
picket line. From him we gather the follow
ing account of how the massacre commenced :
Meacham made a short speech to the Indians,
followed by Gen. Canby, and then Dr. Thomas.
Then Capt. Jack made a Bpeech, asking for Hot
Creek and Cottonwood, the places now occupied
by Fairchild and Dorris, for a reservation. Mr.
Meacham told Jack that it was not possible to
give him what he asked. ,
Schonchin told Meacham to say no more ;
that he (Meacham') had said enough upon that
subject; and while Schonchin was speaking,
Capt. Jack got up Mid walked behind the
others, and turned back and exclaimed "All
ready," drew his pistol, and snapped a cap at
Gen. Canby, cocked his pistol again, and fired.
Gen. Canby fell dead, shot under the right
eye. Schonchin then shot Meacham in the
right shoulder and head, but he is still alive.
Boston Charlev and other Indians shot and
killed Dr. Thomas. Hookey Jim chased Dyer
for some distance, but Dyer turned upon mm
with his pistol in hand, and Jim ran. An In
dian knocked down Riddle's squaw and took
her horse, but Capt. Jack made him return it,
and then another Indian chased Biddle and
shot at him.
THE FEELING IN WASHINGTON.
A Washington dispatch of the 13th says :
The feeling of indignation against the Mo
doc murderers, as attested by conversation
with all the leading officials in Washington,
reaches a degree of intensity which no Indian
treachery has ever heretofore created. Every
member of the Cabinet here has alluded to
the necessities which the outrage have pre
cipitated, and it can be said that there is no
difference of opinion whatever as to the policy
that should now be pursued toward this par
ticular Dana ot Indians.
The feelings of the President and Gen. Sher
man at the sudden announcement were of the
most intense sorrow "and indignation, and
there was not a moment's hesitancy in the
declaration that the Modocs Bhall be made to
Buffer to the severest extent for their crime.
It is now evident that the act was long pre
meditated, and this fact adds to the deep sense
of wrath that the massacre has aroused. The
President has unreservedly expressed his
sanction of the BevereBt measures now neces
sary to properly punish the Modocs, and his
views in this respect have been fully stated to
the authorities acting under the War Depart
ment. Gen. Sherman has als3 telegraphed
Gen. Scholield instructions to move the entire
force at once upon the Indians.

the United States :
Deab Sib ; An Executive order was promul
gated on the 17th of January, 1873, against the
holding of State or municipal offices by Federal
appointees after the 4th of March, 1873. Un
der this order it would be illegal for me to con
tinue to hold the office of Commissioner of the
Civil Service Board unless I resign the Mayor
alty of Chicago. Not feeling that it wold be
expedient to do the latter at present, I there
fore tender my resignation of the appointment
from you of Civil Service Commissioner, and I
hereby tender my thanks for the confidence
you reposed in me in making such appoint
ment. I also trust that the rules prepared by
the Board and accepted by and adopted by you
will not be abandoned, ignored or neglected of
enforcement, believing, as I do, that the ap
plication win tend to improve ana elevate tne
civil service, and that they are indorsed by the
great mass of the American people.
Very respectfully yours,
EXECUTIVE MANSION, WASHINGTON, D. C.,
April 9, 1873.
Deab Sib : Upon my return to Washington
I find your letter of the 1st inst. resigning the
SDsition of Commissioner of the Civil Service
oard, on account of your inability to hold
that position together with your responsible
office of Mayor of Chicago. I appreciate your
reason while I regret that the Board will lose
your valuable services, and in accepting your
resignation I beg to thank you for your earnest
labors in the cause of civil service reform, and
to assure you that the spirit of the rules
adopted will be maintained.

The House Afire.
A gentleman, once offered to bet that
he would empty the whole of a good
'winter fire in a drawing-room ont of the
grate, and ' place it upon the carpet in
the center of the room, all the company
to be seated around it in a circle, and
that the room should not take fire. Mr.
Braidwood, formerly captain of the Lon
don Fire Brigade, said that he would
have backed such a bet-; and that the
fire in such a case would probably have
died out itself. It is not very easy to
set fire to a house without first lighting
curtains or other articles that produce a
lively flame. This fact, however, should
not make us less careful respecting the
causes of tires. JN early all fares can be
managed at the outset by the inmates of
the house. By shutting the doors and
windows so as to prevent the supply of
air to the fire, and by resolutely attack
ing the flames with water, rugs or blan
kets, door-mats, etc., the larger part of
fires in dwelling houses may be smothered.

Boston Journal. FARM AND GARDEN.
Care and Manure of Lawns.
We are aware that it is a long old-time
practice to dress the lawn in autumn
with coarse manure, and so make the
whole foreground of a gentleman's place
the apparent receptacle of his stable
yard for the winter ; but, thnnks to our
American ideas of propriety, ana our
knowledge of assimilation of plant food,
we now measuraDiy ignore xne aogmas
of old country gardeners, and use
specifics, . e., just now we apply salt at
the rate of four bushels to eight bushels
per acre, bone meal in same quantity,
and plaster one-fourth. The sooner
these manorial agents, all except the
J Master, are now applied, the better, tin
es s it be upon a lay of land so sloping
that the coming rams, with melting of
snow and ice, will cause the commingling
or detrition of the manures to wash
away, with the falling water. In such
locations we should not apply our
specifics as above named until the snow
and ice are gone, but then we would
make no delay. The application of the
plaster, i. e., its sowing, should be just
after the has made an inch or more

Points in Cattle.
An English breeder thus enumerates a
few of the general points of excellence
in cattle, whether black, polled, or short-
horned. 1. A neatly formed head, clean
muzzle, Droad between tne eyes, promi
nent, placid eyes, well set ears, and, if
short-horned, a thick, flat horn, hanging
downward, and a liver-colored nose. Z
The neck clean and tapering toward the
head, and of ordinary length. 3. The
chest deep and wide, with a full bosom,
affording plenty of space for the
vital organs to discharge their duties.
4. A broad, straight back, well arched
ribs, strong in muscles above the knees,
fine in the bone below the knee, plenty
of flesh evenly laid on, a buck, mellow

A correspondent of the Farmers'
Journal writes : I have planted them in
different places in drills and in jars, but
the best results were in a pot which kept
all the water, for the hot sun in May
would prevent them from coming up, or
kill the plants as soon as out of the
ground, for they require water often, or
very moist soil. I have had one pot
filled full and running over in a shower.
and soon afterwards turned off the water
without injury to the plants. Soon as
the plants are large enough, I transplant
them in hills ; the plants are very small
when they first come out, resembling
celery. I have raised, I think, over 150
varieties ; the most of them were of no
account. A good potato is very valua

years from the ball.
We think it a wrong practice, when
hauling out manure m the fall or winter.
to place it in heaps. It is better to
spread it at once. In the first place.
labor is saved. But most important of
all is the fact that much of the manure
is wasted when placed in heaps. If
spread at once, it is more equally divided
than it can be afterwards. We once
hauled out manure on to a field, leaving
it in heaps .until the hauling was com
pleted. .During this time showers fell.
The land was sown to oats next spring.
and on the spots where the heaps had
been tne grain lodged and was spoiled.
The following crop was wheat, and on
those spots the wheat rusted and yielded
nothing ; while the growth of straw was
remarkable. We have never since re
peated the practice.
How to Boil Corned Beef.
The rule has a Hibernian sound : don't
boil it, for corned boef should never be
boiled. It should only simmer, being
placed on a part oi tne range or stove
where this process may go on uninter
ruptedly from four to six hours, accord
ing to the size of the piece. If it is to
be served cold, let the meat remain in
the liquor until cold. Tough beef can
be made tender by letting it remain in
the liquor until the next day, and then
bringing it to the boiling point just
Economy in Fattening Animals.
It has been proved by experiment that
the more rapidly an animal is fattened
the less quantity of food is necessary to
sustain its mere vitality. Thus, an ani
mal can be more cheaply fattened by
consuming ten bushels of corn in two
months than if four months were occu
pied in the process. Liberal and
abundant feeding is the most economical.
and a saving of time in producing the
same result is a gain in the profit.
For mixed pickles, prepare any vege
tables you like by cutting them in pieces.
and let them lie in salt and water for
two or three days ; then make the pickle
in the following manner : Boil the
quantity of vinegar required with pep
percorns, mustard-seed, a small quantity
of mace, a few Cayenne pods and gin
ger, and half a pound of flour of mus
tard mixed smoothly in a basin, to be
put in while boiling, put all together in
a large stone gar.
Charcoal or Earth for Hogs.
Hogs that are put up to fatten, as well
as store hogs, should have some char

Never Too Late to Mend.
Whan the stomach Is In a state of chronic rebel
lion against every kind cf food, and the attending
physician with solemn and portentous gravity
declares that such cases of confirmed dyspepsia
defy all remedies, do not pnt faith in his ipse dixit.
Indigestion of this obstinate character may be In
curable by his prescriptions, but it is nt therefore
an Irremovable fixture in the system. The fact ts
that the great -regetable invlgorant and corrective,
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, Is radically curing
cases of this seemingly desperate nature every
day. Indeed it is in those malignant phases ti
dyspepsia -which no ordinary medicine can control
that Its remedial properties are most wonderfully
manifested. We soy to the long-snfferlng martyr,
whose stomach Is a source of perpetual torment to
him, that by the persistent and dally use of this
glorious tonic, he can not only restore the digest
ive organs to their full vigor, but can keep them
in good working order through life. If there is
constipation, the gentle aperient operation of the
Bitters will removo all obstructions and keep the
bowels In a regular and healthy condition. The
grand characteristic of this vitalizing and purify
ing vegetable preparation is that it acts bene
ficially upon every organ, controlling the liver,
reinforcinic the nerves, toning tne coats oi me
stomach, promoting a healthy habit of body, re-
lievtus the blood cf all impurities, clearing ine
brain and reviving the spirits.
