July 2. 42tf OH AKLE6 COLTER. From tlie Sf* Anthony Express. The Democrat and the Winnebago Treaty. We last week declared that we cared not un der what administration the measure inij-ht have been consummated, it should have met our most uncompromising opposition. And when the Democrat can show by fair statements ami plausible reasoning that the Whig party or its agents, ever desired the removal of the \Vin nebagoes to the mouth of Crow river as a per manent possession, we will furnish that editor with the most indubitable evidence that we arc not moved by any private or partisan consider ation in our condemnation of (iov. Gorman’s treaty.— Express. Candid, plausible, very. Now will the Ex press read the extract which we publish to-day from the letter of Secretary McClelland, and then answer us a few questions. Have vou not for more than a year past, been aware that it was the policy of Gov. Hams y to bring the Winnebagoes south to Crow ltiver? If ■o, why did it not meet J 0-ir “ uncouq r noising opposi tion," before his removal from office ? Have ! you not been aware that for more than three years past, a 1 irge portion of this tribe have re sided at the mouth of Crow river with thcsunc tion of Gov. Ramsey ? Did this meet your •* un compromising opposition?” Were* you not aware that at the close of Gov, Ramsey's ad ministration. the Winncbagocs were located at a point south of the mouth of Crow river, near er to St. Anthony, and in the very midst of the white settlements, and that they were encour aged to remain there by the payment of their annuities under his in t.uelioi g? Were you not aware that whilst there they were a contin ual curse and annoyance to the white settlers upon whose lands they had intruded? Did this, even, meet with your “ uncompromising opposition ?” Was the influence of vour sheet, now so readily to be used in the work of defa mation, then brought to denounce this palpable outrage ? By showing the affirmative of these questions, you will then be able to convince us that you are not “moved hv any private con siderations.’’ At present, however, it looks to a candid public very much as though you were affecting to strain at a gnat, after having alrea dy swallowed an animal of huge dimensions.— St. Paul Democrat. We have examined the extract alluded to, and proceed to answer briefly the interrogato ries of the Democrat. We are not aware that it was the determined “policy of Gov. Ramsey to bring the Wiuneba gocs south to Crow river,” but we are abso lutely certain that he never contemplated to settle them at tbe mouth of Crow river, as the editor of the Democrat would fain have his readers believe. The Governor, finding that the Winnebagoes were dissatisfied with their allotted lands ou the Crow Wing, anil would not remain on them, but persisted in occupying a portion of territory south of Crow river, where they were a continual annoyance to the white settlers, did think, as a temporary expe dient, of removing them to a portion of the Crow river country, beginning seventy miles f.-om the mouth of that river, and running west ward toward the Minnesota. The land, howe ver, to which the Winnebagoes were to be con wyed was then in possession of the Sioux and no white man had yet settled either upon or any where near it. * It therefore involved no trespass upon the claims of settlers—no out iage upon white citizens, and least of all was f he recommendation made in defiance of the de termined and unanimous opposition of citizens in that quarter. Indeed we have no reason to doubt that the settlers on the Mississippi above St. Anthony would have hailed such a measure for their temporary relief from an insufferable nuisauce as a God-Bend, and would have inter posed no objection to its immediate consumma tion. The Express notwithstanding, (then un der the editorial charge ofanother,) with a wise forecast, looked to the future, and anticipating the rapid settlement of the entire valley of the Crow river, presenting as it does the most ir rosistable attractions to the farmer and the manufacturing capitalist, opposed the measure as one which would retard the occupation of that fertile region by the whites, and as contra ry to the wonted policy of the government to ward the Indians which has always been to lo cate them at each successive removal as remote from the white settlements as possible. We re ferred the Democrat to our files, in the Express of the 2tith ult., and do not deem it necessary again to insist on the reference. If he desires to know the course we then pursued we pre sume his own files of our paper would enable him to satisfy himself in much less time than it would take us to quote from those papers. The most, therefore, that can bo alleged, against Gov. Ramsey’s policy on tliis suij et is, that he proposed to bring the tVinnebagoes to a more southern latitude, but not any nearer the whites than before. They would indeed have been some ten miles further from St. An thony than in their previous homes. The ob jectionable feature in Gov. Gorman’s treaty, and that which makes it the more palpably an outrage, is that having but a few weeks ago re moved them from the mouth of Crow river, where they were daily making murderous at tacks upon the whites in the vicinity, he now brings them back to that point as owners of the soil, in plain violation of the rights of white cit izens, to become a perpetual dread and annoy ance to settlers in the neighborhood. During the great part of Gov. Ramsey’s ad ministration these lands were in the hands of the .Sioux, and the Governor had nothing to do with them. And if that tribe chose to permit the Winnebagoes to use a part of them, so long as they behaved themselves, Gov. Ramsey had no power to remove them. Their payments, therefore, may or may not have been made there, of this we have no specific knowledge, and have not thought it of enough importance definitely to ascertain. It is sufficient for us to know that Governor Ramsey promptly redres sed all grievances of settlers against the In dians, attended as promptly to all petitions on tlie subject of their removal, and was constant ly intent on so disposing them as would most faithfully carry out the stipulations of the trea ty under which they were brought to the Ter ritory, and at the same time most effectually rid our settlements of the intolerable nuisance of their presence. Are these answers satisfactory to the editor of the Democrat? That he may, however, see that in denouncing Governor Gorman’s treaty from our neighbor Prescott, whose instincts, so far as wc have been able to ascertain them, are with the democratic party : “No, we cannot speak favorably of the late treaty. We cannot, as yet, see the necessity of it. Wc utterly fail to discover that the mea sure was one of ‘justice,’ or that it was ‘ called for by every consideration of public faith, of honor, and humanity.’ We freely and gladly acquit the Governor of any intentional w rong, having always believed that he earnestly de sires and means to labor for the best interests of the whole country over which he is chief ma gistrate ; but all this does not in tbe least les sen our regret, that he should have been so misled by ‘docamentary evidence,’ brought forth from the archives of a former administra tion.” Tbe I’ioncer, lost week, in an article wherein the editor professes to define his position, also, declares his opposition to the “ new location for the tVinnebagoes.” Thus the only coadjutor ot the Democrat, which at first (while under the editorial management of an irresponsible ‘sub,’*) united its voice with that of the Democrat in the vain effort to defend tlie Governor, now, iu the' voice of its responsible editor, assumes a • Our neighbor is m'ataken in this.

Truly, the Democrat has chosen an unfortu nate position, since his own party canuot ap prove it. Alone on tlie battle-field, singlet handed against a host, it would be but blind temerity to persist in the unequal combat, and ‘ discretion being the better part of valor,’ we will accord him the full meed of praise due to his chivalrous valor, if he row quit the field and say no more about t!ie Winnebago Treaty: I’itnuiiKss or Iron Mantkkti iiim; ixtiie U.vt- TF • ,, States.— A Company has just been formed at ( leveland, Ohio, composed of one or two prut t cal iron men with sev oral retired capital ists, who have subscribed one hundred thousand dollars in stock, bought eight acres of land be tween Masson s ear manufactory and the Lake,' commenced improvements, and in a few weeks will have their hammers pounding and theif bellows blowing.

Kkmovino a Ring fhom a Voi'.ng Lady’s Fi.v gek.—Pr. Castle communicates to the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, the following in genious method, devised by him, forextrieating a young lady’s linger from a ring which was too small for her. We give his story in his own language : “ An interesting young lady about seventeen years of age had presented to her a gold ring,- which she forced over tlie joints of her middfcf linger. After a few minutes tlie finger com menced swelling, anil the ring could not be re moved. Tlie family physician, I)r. . was sent for, but could do nothing. The family and the young lady especially, were now in the greatest consternation. A jeweller was sen! for. After manyfutile attempts to cut the ring with cutting-nippers, and to saw it apart with a line saw, and after bruising and lacerating the flesh, warm fomentations and leeches were applied, but all without affording the slightest benefit. Dr. requested my presence, with the compliment that • perhaps my mechanical ingenuity might suggest something.’ lat onco proceeded to the house of the patient, and found the young lady iu a most deplorable state of mental agony, the doctor embarrassed, aud thu family iu a state of excitement. I procured some prepared chalk, and applied it between the ridges of swollen flesh, and all round tho linger, and succeeded in drying the oozing ami abraded flesh ; then with a narrow piece of soft linen 1 succeeded in p dishing the ring by draw ing it gently round the ring between the swol -1 n parts. 1 then applied quicksilver to ih<9 whole surface of the ring, lu less than thred minutes the ring was broken (by pressing it together) in four pieces to the great relief of all parties. lu a similar manner (without the clmlk) I some time since extracted a small brass ring from the ear of a child, who. child-like, had in* sorted it in the cavity of its ear. The operation was more painful aud tedious, but was equally successful. The modus operandi. The quicksilver at once permeates the metals, if clean, (w ith the exception of iron, steel, platina, undone or two others,) and amalgamates with them. It im mediately crystaliz.es and renders the metal as bard and as brittle as glass. Hence the ease with which metals amalguted with quicksilver can lie broken.” Nkkkaska Tkruitory. —This Territory having Iteen set apart by treaties to the several triltes ot Indians removed there liy Government from sections of country where the whites crowded them badly, the (,’ommis. i mer of Indian Affair, has felt it to lie his duty to personally examine into their w ants and condition. Col. Manypen nv is now on a visit to the Territory, and he has issued a document on the subject of Indi an Reservations by which it appears that the Department of the Interior consider ordinary white settlements in Nebraska, unlawful at the present time. The Indian title has never Iteen extinguished, but Congress at its last session authorized the President to treat with the Indi an tribes located along the western boundary of lowa and Missouri for the purpose of extin guishing their title in whole or in part to the country they now occupy, and measures are in progress to effect that object. The Territory is occupied by a number of tribes, some of them numerous and powerful, and the whites are be ginning to encroach on their hunting grounds by settlements, so as to become annoying. The principal tribes are the Omahas, Pawnees, Si oux, Ottoes, lowavs, Sacs, Foxes, Kickapoos, Delawares, Wyandotts, Pottow atomies, Shaw nee*.

Serious Charges.— Last night, in Council Mr. Eggleston, of the Kith ward, presented a com munication from three young ladies, recently in mates of the City Inlirmary, who allege that they were seduced hy two officers of that Insti tution, l)rs. Marsh arid Victora, who afterwards conveyed them to a Justice of tlic Peace, and made oath that they were lunatics and caused them to be committed to the Commercial Hos pital. The females claim that this was done to hide the conduct of which they had been guilty. The petitioners asked Council to investigate the matter and give them redress. Several mem bers of the Hoard stated that information of these and similar outrages of these officers had come to their ears, and it was high time that an investigation was made. A resolution, appoin ting a special committee of three, with power to send for persons and papers, and give the matter a thorough examination, was passed. The committee will make their report within two weeks.— Cin. Atlas. NUMBER 1.
