LO, THE POOR INDIAN!
The fucllity with which wo have kick
ed up a fiiHH with tho Indians of Alaska,
in characteristic. Our soldiers there
havo captured a hlg chief and looked
him up, and wounded two braves quite
Horloualy. Tho Indians lUBtead of sub
mitting quietly, for tho sake of peace,
turned upou our "blue coata" and hurt
one of them. And these violent passes
being much talked of and greatly exag
gerated, uu 111 feeling has been engender
ed, which may, If properly fanned and
oucouraged, lead to a considerable war
there. A ueV llelrl will bo opened to
contractors, more brigadiers will bo add
ed to our Hat, now admirals and commo
dores created, and ns for martial glory!
Why a war with the handful of Sitka
red-ski ni would cover us all over with it.
ho New York 'Tribune' treating this
subject In a vein of irony, thinks that It Is
pretty hard to tell exactly who Is to blamo
In this business but is suro that tho In
dian will get his share of censure and cm
tlgatlon. As wo aro tho civilized and
christianized party, says tho 'Tribune,'
with plenty of guns, powder and ships
and troops, It follows, as matter of course,
that thuMj redskins must be quite In the
wrong, and deserving of massacre when
ever wo can get U them. But, unfortu
nately, their villages aro lu tho Interior,
and eauuot, therefore, be conveniently
shelled. It appears to us that there are
two ways of expeditiously killing them
oir. In the llrst place, could not the
small-pox bo Judiciously oud eflectualljf
Introduced among U.etnV And what
pestilence left of them It would not bo
much tho firewater might finish. A
highly reapectablo cotemporay observes:
"Wo can better allord to deal Justly and
oven liberally with the decaying rem
uauts of tho original owners of tho soil
because their day Is so far spent. Nature
will soon enough solve the problem for
them by extinction. Let not this great
nation add to tho long score of sins
already laid up against It the guilt of
hastening that day." This is undoubtedly
tho moat compassiouute view to tako of
the matter; but after all, may there not
bo a pitiful weakness lu ttie ludulgcuco
of these feelings of couimUserutlou?
Wiiero is tho guilt of hasteuiug the day
of extinction, when that process lias
been dellultely resolved upou, or at least
has been taken for granted as a matter
of necessity? There Is nothing more
wretched than a decaylug people perish
ing through tbo vices of civilization,
dying a liugerlug deuth, and needlug
more than anything to bo put out of Its
misery. If the Indian is Incapable of
enlightenment, of a comparatively eleva
ted sociul position, of culture, of pru
dence, of Industry, then ho must be
swept from ttio face of the country by the
advancing tide of emigration and the
sooner tho better!
Bo, shoot, hang and slaughter theso
miserable people, with nil potslDlo expe
dition! It will bo a proud day for our
country when wo can say that wo have
"wiped out" tho Hltka redskius!
Tho quarrels among the radical lights
in Congress havo caused tho unearthing
of villainy enough to damn any govern
ment possessed of ordinary vitality.
Every week discloses uow villainies and
new villains, and should tho bickerings
and quarrels continue tho lamontablo
fact will soon be established that we
havo our high places tilled with as ar
rant a set of scoundrels as over cut a
throat or scuttled a ship.
Butler has promised tho country to
oxposo Sohonck and show the connec
tion of that eminent patriot witli tbo
whisky ring. Butler got on Schonck'H
track when the was nosing about the
telegraph offices and seizing privato cor
respondence at the time of the impeach
ment. Tho revalatlons promise to bo
rich. Ex-Oovuruor und Suuutor Fenton,
of Now York, is expected to explain tho
extent of his connection with tho Erio
.llailroad. An Investigating Committee
of tho Now York Legislature charges
him with complicity in the Erio frauds
of last winter. Tho report shows that
a friend of Fenton received tho snug
sum of twenty thousand dollars to hasten
tho jdgimtura of an!lmportaut Erio Bill.
If that amount did not reach the hands
of this distinguished radical patrloti
there aro some curious poople who would
like tokuowwhathodldget. No person
bellovcs that ho did not receive his
share, allowing n reasonable per centum
for his go between. Of cource, Fenton
will not bo Invited to resign. There aro
too many others of tho morality party in
tho Senate who would bo obliged to follow
him In case of investigation.
RUMORED NEUTRALITY PROOLA
It Is rumored that the president wilL
issue u proclamation this week calling
attention to tho threatened Violation of
the noutralltylaws, by unknown parties,
regarding tho Insurgent operations in
Cuba, and quoting the stringent act of
1818, for tho information of all concerned.
At tho sarao tlmo it Is ofllolally behoved
that there is considerable exaggeration
regardtug the reports or expeditions fit
ting out lu this country for Cuba.
LOGAN, LONE AND LORN.
On Saturday 'last the senate passed,
without opposition, the' bill permitting
the president to retire Goneral Ilclntzel
man upon tho rank of his command at
the date of his wound. This will give
him tho retiring pay of major-general,
and will add probably ono thousand dol
lars to his present pay as colonel. As
General. Ijlelntzel man has nqthlng for
tiio support or uis ramuy out mat pay,
ho Is thus secured for his old ago In a
moderato Income. In the House Gener
Logan fiercely attacked the bill, and la
bored nearly an hour to defeat it. His
proposed amendment was voted down
Garfield, Blocum, Banks, Bhanfcs,
Bingham, Butler, Dawes, and oth
ers advocated the bill as a meritorious
act, in appreciation of Hclntzelman'a
great service. Goneral Logan became
furious at his evident weakness; in an
answer tocrlos for question , stigmatized
such action as uugentlcmanlyand an in
sult to him. In tho vote the most re
markable event of the congresss oc
curred; it was a unanimous shout of aye,
und, General Logan demanding n divis
ion, every man In tho House but himself
Goneral Helntzclman was on the floor,
and this evidence of tho nation's gratl-,
tudo and appreciation so affected tho
gallant old otllccr that tho tears streamed
down his cheeks, and he was overcome

Tho press of Memphis is'down on tho
dogs." Tho 'Appeal,' auathematlztng
tho cauluo race, says: "To put the last
straw on the camel's back of forbearance,
and to heap flaming coals on the fire of
exasperation, "the dogs of the day" have
taken it into their heads to go mad.
They aro snapping and biting at the passers-by
In tho streets, and lnfectlug ono
auothor with their hell-engendered virus
In order that tho snappers and biters may
bo yet further multiplied."
And so It will bo in Cairo unless pre
cautionary measures aro quickly adopted.
The dogs of Cairo aro unquestionably a
nuUance. Grave apprehensions of hy
drophobia constantly entertained; and
thero aro but few If any citizens here,
who do not echo tho cry raised in Mem
phis: "down with tho dogs." Cltlzons

dog tax, tho protection of tho dog muz
