HE 11TH Dis patch had gone and another detail made, consisting of Privates Gilson, Stickler, Eice, and nryself, under com maud of Serg't MattWitted. We had no duty to per form but keep our selves in readiness for the 12th dis patch, ivhich vras brought in on the evening of Aug. 24 by a Fort Thompson detail, after we had waited 10 days. We were ordered to pick out five of the best horses and start Our orders were to go through to Fort Eice 200 miles in two and a half days.. Al though there was no moon, the night was clear, and objects could be seen some little distance. About midnight, while Eice and mj-seif were riding in the lead, I discovered some objects ahead of us, but could not tell what they were. I directed a companion's attention to the objects, and he yelled: "Who comes there?" We at once received answer: "Sol diers from FortEice. Who comes there ? " After exchanGriunr a few words we ad vanced and found it to be seven boys of Co. G, 6th Iowa Cav., on their way to Fort Sully with a dispatch. We picketed our horses, rested, and talked with the boys about an hour. They had seenpo Indians, but judging from numerous fresh "signs" thought the country iras full of them. We struck out again and kept moving all night till late" In the morning, when we came to a little stream of water, about 40 miles out from Fort Sully, where we fixed for getting our breakfast. Each carried hardtack and coffee and an old fin can to make coffee in. One of the boys tilso had a canvas ham tied to his saddle. We had not gone far when Eice suc ceeded In shooting an antelope, which we quartered without skinning, and hung It onto our saddles, anticipating a rare dinner when we reached the Little Cheyenne Eiver. A little before noon we came in sight of the Cheyenne, and about the same time discovered a large Indian camp to the left of our trail. (We had followed the trail made by the expedition when it went up in the Spring.) The camp appeared to contain about 400 or 500 Indians, and, of course, brought us to a halt. Some of the boys wanted to put back for Fort Sully and make a run for our lives, but after talking the matter over wc saw that would not do, as the Indians had undoubtedly seen us as soon, or perhaps sooner, than we had them. So we concluded we might as well go DOW AXD BE KILLED as to be chased all over the prairie, only to meet death in the end. We stalled over the rough ground bordering the river, deciding that if the Indians did not come out after us we wculd keep to the trail, and pass their camp on the right. Thus we displayed the inordinate tenacity with which humanity clings to life and hope, even in the face of almost certain death. Our anticipation of becoming objects of the fiendish delight of those savage brutes by a horrible torture at the stake was mingled with a review of our past in such a manner as to cause the drama of an entire life to be enacted in the space of a very few minutes, intensified, in pro portion to its condensation. Our slender hope was soon dispelled entirely. We had gone but a little dis tance toward the creek, when, in passing by a steep bluff) we were all at once sur rounded b- about 15 red devils, who had. probably been lying in wait for some time. We involuntarily halted, know ing that resistance would only the more quickly cause our death. Y. We assumed as indifferent an air as possible, and spoke to the Indians in their own language, with which we were all familiar at tliat lime, telling them we were friends. They answered the same, and shook hands with us. Eut our fears were not altogether relieved, as we believed, this was only another ruse. However, as they dicl not take our arms or offer us any injury, we complied with the request to go to their camp,, while at the same time the proceeding struck us as out of the ordinary. As we rode into their camp almost the first Indians we met were some of those who had been with us- at the fort the Winter before, and the mystery of our deliverance was solved. They ap peared overjoyed at seeing us, rushed up and shook hands, and generally mani fested more pleasure than fs usual with the Indian. The joy was not altogether one-sided, either, as may be imagined. Our situation made ue appreciative tf possible assistance frwn any quarter. Pitcher's CastorSa. FACING I then had, and have still, that confi dence in Indians, that, after becoming acquainted and having once treated them fairly, you forever after have in them the warmest of friends, and here we had ample proof of this. !No sooner had we dismounted than two squaws came np with a kettle of water and offered us a drink, which we were all in need of, as the day was very hot. Our horses were unsaddled and taken outside the camp to graze. The two squaws then inquired if we had eaten dinner. By this timcour appetites were returning, and we informed them we were as hungry as bears. They jerked the hide ofT a quarter of our antelope, placed it with some buffalo meat of .their own, and boiled it up nicely for us. We also gave them some coffee to prepare. While watching, the squaws get dinner, and "after exchanging, a few words, I recognized them. I neglected to state that in. the Spring the Indians came and went along the frontier on peaceful errands, trading their furs, robes, etc. During one of these trading expeditions I had given these two squaws a couple of pans of beans at the fort which had been left over at dinner one day, and now they could not do too much to repay my small kindness to them. We learned those Indians were part of the ones we had fought in the sBad Lands the Summer before, but the most of them seemed friendly enough. Occa sionally an ugly looking brute would pass us and paT no attention to our " how." One buck who came along stopped, and began talking about the fight. He showed, us where one of our bullets went through his arm, but he did not seem to hold any resentment toward us for it There were several therdwho would just as leave have carried our scalps to their belts as not, although they made no effort to molest us. The two friendly squaws prepared an impromptu shade by erecting a buffalo robe on top of four stakes, and prepared us a dinner, which we .greatly relished. After dinner and a good rest the friendly Indians, perhaps surmising our thoughts, told us we were at liberty to go when we pleased, at the same time inviting us to stay in their cemp all night This we could not do as long a3 it was possible to move. They Informed us that there was another Indian camp on the next stream, 20 miles further up. We would prob ably be stopped ; but if so, we were immediately to state that we were carry ing a dispatch to Gen. Sully, and must not be delayed. We then left the friendly camp, where we had been so fortunately spared, with misgivings as to our ultimate success in getting through. We passed the next stream, where we expected to EN'COUXTEIl MOKE INDIANS, just after dark, but our lucky star was still in the ascendant, as no reds ap peared. We pushed on to Fort Eice without, trouble, reaching there in two and a half days. The command was camped on the east side of the river, opposite the fort, having just arrived on their -way baclc from the expedition. Our detail, was taken across to the fort on the ferrv- at boat, with orders to Tcmain two weeks and rest up. I was so near used up that I could scarcely walk a few rods to the stable. While the expedition had been north of Fort Eice, the dispatches had been carried beyond that point by Indian scouts, as the ordinary soldier messenger would have stood little show in getting through the hordes of Indians who in fested the country. In a week five Fort Sully boys came up with a dispatch, and in another week 10 more arrived. Five had started as usual with the last dis patch, but when about 40 miles out met Indians, and were compelled to return. Capt Bronson then placed the dis patch in the hands of Serg't Jas. Gar rott, as good a- man as we had in our company, gave him nina picked men, and told him to fight hi3 way through. They selected 10 good horses, and loaded themselves with ammunition. At about the same point 11 Indians appeared in all their aiut and aborigi nal glory. However, the bluff did not win as before, and the Indians were routed. The messengers had no time to follow them, so pushed on to the fort. The next morning, after the arrival of the last dispatch, 22 Co. B boys started back, two of the last detail having to re turn with the expedition, as theywere worn out; but a Captain of a Minne sota regiment and our regimental sutler took their places on our return trip. While we were in what I suppose i3 now Campbell County, we saw a couple of men on foot approaching us from the south. Within a half mile of us one of them turned to the west and passed out. of sight over a ridge, the other coming straight on. We discovered it was one of the young Indians who had been in the guardhouse at Fort Sully, The man who had passed over the ridge was another, and the third had got out one dark night in June, and succeeded in making his escape. The young brave said he and com panion had escaped from the guardhouse a few nights before, and. were returning to their people. AYe boys wanted to let him go, but the Captain said we must take him with us. Wc went along, with him for a few miles, when he lay down and said he could walk no farther. One of the boys gave him his horse to ride. Private Moan was the only one who re mained witk the Indian, the rest mov ing on. The wily red fooled, around aa long as he could in getting a whip ,ud mounting, until we had got quite a dis tance ahead.. Suddenly he turned tail and laid whip to the horse, flying across the prairie with, afair prospect of escape. However, his hopes were nipped in, the bud, for Moan drew a. bead on him and' shot him dead on the fly. As we had. nothing, bat case-knives: to dig a grave with, his carcass was left on the prairie. We reached Sully at daylight, two day and tone night out Eight boys xy and as many horses.Jiad made the 400 miles ia less than. six days; but the liorses were so nearytwprn out that one of them died about two miles above the fort, and the men were about as badly used up. :: Fort Sully at that time was about 25 miles farther down the. river than it is now. The Indian camp where we had been taken prisoners 'was almost the exact spot where Capl. Fjielner, our topo graphical engineer,had ,been killed the Summer before. The 6th Iowa Car. returned to Dav enport, Iowa, where we were discharged and paid off on Nov. 1, lSOS; and it i3 safe to say the majority of us had in that expedition all the experience we cared for fighting Indians. (The end.) SILVER'S FALL IN INDIA. Tho Decline or tho Kupeo and the "Wretched State or Uio Natives. Dr. P. J. Scott, a missionary who has beeu in India since 1862, ia at Delaware, O., on a furlough. He is in no sense a politi cian, and in telling, about silver in India stated repeatedly that he did not want to furnish any political arynmeuts. He said : "The silver rn pee, corresponding to yonr American half-dollar, is the standard piece of money in India. When I went to India the rupee was worth about 48 cents com mercially ; when I left a year ago it was worth about 25 cents. That is, silver has , depreciated there as here and as all over the world. " India- has not.dlscredited silver as money at any time. Silver has been the circulating medium. Gold is seldom or never seen. The mints were closed to silver a few years ago, not to discredit it, but because the Gov ernment hoped by decreasing the volume of coinage to maintain at a steadier value the rnpee. Silver continued to fall, however, as it has the world over. India's financiers attribute-the depreciation of silver to the vast silver production of American mines. In dian and European financiers agree that tho vast increase of the world's output of silver has produced the steady depreciation in its bullion value. "Day laborer such as cooliea, receive from 2 to 4 cents per day. Masons, carpen ters, mechanics, and all such as we class as skilled labor, receive from, 10 to 12 cents per day. Wheat is worth per bushel from 30 to 4ocenl8 in the currency of the country about 38" cents just now. Clothing and cloth goods, such a is manufactured in In dia, are somewhat cheaper, than we get them for here, on account of the very cheap labor. For imported cloths, gar ments,and shoes brought fro ra English mill's the India prces are about the same as the American.. Articles such, as lamps, glas?, and. queens ware, anything breakable or liable to damage in the long transportation, journey, cost many tiAies'naore than they do here. Beefsteak runs frtath 8 to 10 cents per pound. Mutton, is very expensive." ; "How can ths common laborer or jeven the skilled workman clothe and feed him self and family when, he gets but from 2 to 12 cents perday, and yet has- to pay Ameri can prices for flour, meats, and clothing? " the Doctor was asked., T "That must seem a puzzler to Americans. The India workman uses the simplest arith metic. Lowest wages mean cheapest food and tcanticst clothing. He weary only a turban and breech clout, with now and then a flowing robe, all of the cheapest cotton fabrics. One garmeni lasfs him a year. As ibod, meats he never can afford. Rice and pulse three times a ddy if he is fortunate, or only once or twice, in many cases, constitute his sole diet. He wears the least possible of the cheapest possible dbtfhing, and eats the cheapest, commonest, scantiest fare, for he can afford no belter." Free Silver anil Pensions. Editok National Tiuhune: As many pensioners and Government employees do not seem toMinderatand how Free Silver will affect their incomes, please let me make it plain. The Free Silverites claim that the farmers will get better prices for their grain and the workingtnen therefore will obtain better prices for their labor; and we know that all imports would keep up to the gold standard. Therefore, when flour goes up to $10 a barrel, codes to 50 cents a pound and other-things in proportion, the pensioner will only receive his pension of$12, or whatever it may be now, and the Government clerk his $000 or $1,200 salary, or whatever it is at present. Thus the cost of living for all Government employees and pensioners will be doubled, while they will only receive the same annual amount as heretofore. The in crease of the wages of mechanics and work' iugmen will not lead to any increase of Gov ernment salaries and pensions, while flour and clothing will double in price- under the Free Silver regime. These facta are plain and easily understood, and there bIiouIU be no doubt as to how the Government em ployee or pensioner should vote. The Demo crats here make no reserve of saying that Free Stiver U only a catch-penny cry to get into power again. They know that elect ing Eryan will not give them Free Silver, as Congress would have to pass an act to estab lish the free coinage of silver. 3fn the last Presidential election, when wheat was about 80 cents per bushel, the Democrats had. a rallying cry 'of "Vote for Cleveland and wheat at $1 a bushel." They voted for Cleveland, aud wheat got down as low 03 50 cents, and we have had hard, times ever since. Xow they have the cry of Free Silver, aud claim that will restore good times, when the fact is that we need more revenue to meet the current expenses of the Government, so that issues of bonds such as have been made in this Administration may be, made no mere-in the future. We need never expect good limes until the Republicans are in power, again. Wm. E. Doyle, StevenBburgi Va. From a Comrade fn Missouri.

A SOUTHERN COMRADE Sonnds the I'ruinpet-Call for Comrade Win, McKinley. Attention, -Comeades! Now is our chance. This is the only timo since the war that a private soldier who carried his mus ket and marched on foot has bjen nomi nated for President of these United States a man who endured all the fatigues, hard ships, and privations of that great struggle; a man who really feels for us, and who will see that justice is done to every one of us by placing on the statute books such legislation as will redeena the pledges made by the Na tion to its defenders; u man who fsso honest that when he got in trouble' financially by going, security for a friend did not hesitate to sacrifice his own fortune to redeem hi3 promises, but offered to give up his wife's property, too, rather than that bis word or promise should fail. Such a comrade is an honor to every one of us,, for he is our repre sentative before the Nation. Stand steady, comrades, shoulder to shoulder, Democrat or Republican, Populist or Prohibitionist, no matter what your politics may have been; better to rally to McKinley for the honest fulfillment of our Nation's promises to our Nation's creditors, and sound money, and honest men in the Pension Bureau, and Gen.

"Local financial men are beginning to get jubilant day by day over the prospect of Bryan? winning, in the- United States- Aa estimate of the various forces published in the New York Journal seems to indicate that McKinley has very little chance of win ning, unless a reaction against the silver hysteria strikes the United States before November. " If Columbia carries out her apparent in tention of isolating herself commercially from all the other prominent nations of the world, it is felt that a vast number of in vestors, both. English and American, will be,, driven to invest their capital in Canada, and, by a curious chance, it happens that at the present time our fields for investment are, lor the first time, comiug before the financial world. "This ia an interesting application of that very selfish old adage, 'It's an ill wind that blows nobody good.' Yet Canadians are not to be blamed if they rejoice that in bringing ruin on herself Columbia maybe shedding pro3perity on us. The question is, whether any boom thatrshould arise here would not flatten out when the United States begins to reap the- whirlwind as a result of the present seed-time among her politicians. The rela tions between the two countries are unques tionably intimate, and the recent hard times have been reciprocal between them. "However, Cauada presents a genuinely fruitful field for investment, and capital would put heron a grand basis, so that there is ground for the belief that ultimate disaster in the United States would leave her sounder than ever."

Editor National Thibone: For one, I cau assure you that you are right, eter nally right, on the finance question. Stand by your colors, and I am with you. You are right in saying that it is the same old crowd that erstwhile tried to wreck the Union. You are right in saying that prior to 18G1 there was no silver money in circulation ex cept the debased coin of Mexico, the French, ftvejfranc piece,, and. the English sovereign. The Mexican halves, quarters, and 12J-ceut pieces usually passed lor 40 cents, 20 cents, and. 10 cents, the sovereign 4.90, and the French 5-franc piece was the- largest silver piece in circulation. So scarce had the silver coin become in April, 1861, that our merchants were compelled to" use pasteboard checks for 5, 10, 25, and 50 cents, respectively, issued by the bankers, and redeemable in sums of $5 when' presented: to the person issuing them.

Johnston immediately crossed into Ken tucky and advanced as far as Bowling Green, "which he began to fortify aard thenoe dispatched Gen. Bucknec with a division, forward toward Louisville. Gen. ZollicofTer, in. like maimer; entered the Stale and advanced as far as-Somerset. On the day I reached Louisville the excitement ran high. It was known that Columbus, ICy., had been occupied Sept. 7 by a slrong rebel force under Gens. Pillow and Polk, and that Gen. Grant had moved from Cairo and occu pied Paducah in force on the Gth. Many of the rebel families expected Buckner to reach Louisville at any moment. That night Gen. Anderson sent for me, and I found him wit It Mr. Guthrie, President of the Louisville & .Nashville Bsilroad, who had in his hands a dispatch to the efTect that the bridge across the Rolling Pork of Salt Creek, less than 30 milc3 out, had been burned, and that Buck ners force, en route for Louisville, had been detained beyond Green Eiver by a train thrown from the track. Wie learned afterward that a man named Bird had displaced a rail oil purpose to throw the train-off the track, and thereby give U3 time. Mr. Guthrie explained that in fne ravine just beyond Salt Creek were sev eral high and important trestles which, if destroyed, would take months to replace, and Gen. Anderson thought it well worth the effort to save them. Also, on Mul draugh's Hill, beyond, was a strong posi 'tion, which had in former years been used as the site for the State te Camp of Instruction," and we all supposed that Gen. Buckner, who wa3 familiar with the ground, was aiming for a position there, from which to operate on Louis ville. All the troop3 we had to counteract Buckner were Rousseau's Legion and a few Home Guards in Louisville. The former were still encamped across the river at Jefferson ville; so Gen. Ander son ordered me to go over, and with them, and such Home Guards as we could collect, make the effort to secure possession of Muld rough's Hill before Buckner could reach it. I took Capt. Prime with me and crossed over to Eousscaurs camp. the long roll was beaten, and within an hour the men, to tiie number of about 1,000, were marching for the ferryboat and' for the Nashville Depot. Meantime Gen, Anderson had sent to collect some Home Guards, and Mr. Guthrie to get the trains ready. It was' after midnight before we began to move. The train proceeded slowly, and it was daybreak when we reached Leb anon Junction, 26 miles out, where we disembarked and marched to the bridge over Salt River, which we found had been burnt;' whether to prevent Buck ner coming into Louisville or us from going out, was not clear. Rousseau's Legion forded the stream and marched up to the State Gamp of Instruction, finding the high trestles all secure. The railroad hands went to work at once to rebuild the bridge. I remained a couple of days at Lebanon Junction, during which Gen. Anderson forwarded two regiments of volunteers that had come to him.
