In the attack by the Indians at Bentbn, it appears that Frank Angevine killed one of the chiefs. Isidore, a Mexican, mej, in the camp of the South Peagans, a savage who was in the fight, and he said the man "with a tooth out in front" was the one who killed the chief, and therefore they scalped him- The real cause of the outbreak dates farther back than we supposed. During the winter, Charley Carson, a cousin of the resowned Kit Carson, was trapping along the Missouri, with two comrades, when three Bloods stole their horses. Charley and bhis comrades pursued them, caught them cook ing, shot them, anl regained their horses. It was to revenge this that the Blood war party, one hundred and eighty strong, started out. Thev intended to kill all the whites at Ophil, ana the slaughter of the ten men, desciibed in our last, saved the rest, who were ignorant of the vielnity of the Indiame. Samuel Chamberlain, with the owner of the cortal at, Ophir, and the eook of the boat, rode up to the scene of the fight and founJ N. W. Burris, about half an hour after his murder, and the reason why the party did not all go from the boat wag that many had families,- and there were but nine saddles there. It was thought that the Indians would cut in between the parties and the boat, murder the woman and children, and fire the steamer; so they waited till morn ing; when, on going up, they found the men all stripped, except Abraham Lott, who had on a shirt, in the pocket of which was about $40 in greenbacks and nuggets. This has been forwarded to his wife. The kill ing of the party could not possibly have been in retribution for the shooting of the three at Benton. as the assassination hap pened next day, and the war party were out a month previously, and knew nothing about it. Isidore found this out. Four or five weeks before, they were stealing horses, which is their custom, to prevent the whites following them, and they attack afterwards. We subjoin a correct list of the murdered men, with such particulars as we can learn of their residences and families: N. W. Burris, from Burris City, Iowa. He was the founder of that place, which was named after him. He leaves a wife and several children in the States. Abrahlam Lott, UIson, iiiinois, is marnea, and came out only last January. A young man took charge of his property and started for the States to hand it to Lott's wife, with whom be is acquainted. The deceased had in his pocket over $500 in coin, which the Indians got. Franklin Friend and George Friend were brothers from Iowa, and of their family and place of residence nothing has yet reached us. John Andrews was from Oregon here. His parents resiae in New Jersey. Nothing known of his family. Henry Martin-Iowa. E. J.'Martin-Residence not known. He had a discharge from the 18th Missouri Vol unteers. Frank Angevine was partner to Tom Baume, of this city. He was not mar ried, but the young lady to whom he was engaged seems to have had a clear presenti ment of his approaching death. James Perie, a colored man, in the employ of H. Phillbrook. The Indians say he fought well. A day or t o befcrj the massacre, six Indians came up to two wagons owned by Phillbrook and Carleton, and commenced plundering, seizing one man by the beard. Jas. Perie, the colored man, presented his gun, and would have shot one of the sav ages, but was prevented. The Indians gave back and retreated, but not before they had lighted a fire in the wagons. This happened about a mile from Ophir, and the men being frightened, came up and joined the company at once. There were one hundred and eighty Indians in the war party, and they rode away with such speed that they entered the Peagan camp, nearly one hundred miles distant, at 8 a. x. The party left an Indian rifle, between 1,500 aqd 2,000 pounds of dried meat, a brass camp kettle, and a large quantity of mocasins and squaw dresses, such wasrtheir hurry to be off. They also lost a piece of a scalp. The way the scalp is taken is this: Two or three Indians com mence cutting behind each ear upwards, and then take off the top, making three pieces, which the owners produce at the scalp dance, and the trophy counts a "coup" towards their promotion to the rank of chief. Two or three days before this, a scouting party of eight Indians crept stealthily ap in the evening, but were discovered by a dog which at once gave the alarm. The men turned out and corralled them; whereupon they called oat, "don't shoot," and gave themselves up. Their guns were taken away and locked up till morning. They were then returned, and the vermin suffered to depart. A half-breed named Battiste, living with a Gros-Ventre squaw, was informed by her that they were Blood Indians, but she stated that she was afraid to tell it while they were there. AS INCrIDNT or THE ST. ALBANS RAID.-It is related that one of the St. Albans raid, ers. after his discharge by Judge Coursol found himself pretty tightly cornered in attempting his escape. He therefore dressed in woman's clothing, and a baby was bor rowed of a person in Montreal for which the sum of $400 was deposited for security for its return. With this precieus cargo the young rascal started overland for Halifax, and carried the infant nearly the whole way, his companion on the journey actually being a detective officer. The latter gal lantly attended, as in duty bound, to the behests of his fair lady traveler, including the not unfrequent demands of the young ster. How the detective and his frail com panion finally became separated, or how the suspicions of the representative of the law became quieted, deponent saith not. It is sufficient to say, no arrests were made on that occasion.-Montreal Herald. TaRU TO THKIa OxzoAnimanox-Tho testi mony of Edward Frazer, of St. Louis, who revealed the plot to burn stemboat, bridges and hospitals, diclosed the fact that the men engaged is it were mea ber. of the Order of American Knights, orn·ea of Liberty. The leader of the gg was ^W W ^ M -I sW kst -.'6 l i'4" l- o <M»^, sn n ^ ^ w^. :^;^ ^^^^ .St The Ceosmittee on the Cemct of thein The different opinions vouchsafed by the press of New York City as to the Committee on the Conduct of the War, go to. show how muoh a man's views are biassed and dis torted by the medium .through whiol he makes his observations: The truth is, that this War Committee is one of the grandest humbugs that Congress "has ever inflicted upon the -country. It is simply a political machine, designed for the work of poiiahing up the military brass of suck meneu Butler and passing it upon the people for pure gold. Ben. Wade and his colleagues in that committee are no more competent to judge of military services, or the military ability of a general, than any other reasonably intelligent civilian. Nor were they ever expected to decide correctly upon such questions. Their mission has been to whitewash the reputation of men who are better politicians than generals; and frojl the indications so far received, their efforts have been decidedly successful. -SuCwn. When the members of this unparalleled Committee shall, one by one, have been gathered to their fathers, we devoutly trust that a nation's gratitude will provide them with a common tomb on the memorable field of Big Bethel, inscribing thereon, in ater nam rei memoriam: "Here lies buried, in a just despair of any resurrection, a Congres sional committee which, having organized distrust, jealousy, and suspicion in the darkest hour of our national annals, reso lutely withstood the progress of order, con fidence, and hope in our military councils through three eventful years, and died at last in the moment of national victory, faithful to itself and to its traditions. The cause of Grant and triumph pleased Heaven and the eople; but Butler the Committee!" - World. Ben. Wade's pocket Committee on the Conduct of the War has concluded its labors and adjourned. From the summary of the report we see that all our generals are pro nounced failures except Ben. Butler. They also deelare that Gen. Butler was right in not taking Fort Fisher, and therefore Terry was wrong in capturing it.- Herald. When history comes to be written, it will be found that the Committee on the Conduct of the War have done a service to the coun try far beyond mere contributions to afuture understanding of the last four years' events. They have been the censors as well as the annalists of our war, and it is owing to them more than any other one single influence that the lax administration of our armies in the early years of the rebellion was ex changed for a sterner rule, and that imbe cility, indifference, cowardice, and treachery were finally expelled from the army over which they had dominated for two years in the guise of generals. Before this relent less inquisition, shams had to vanish and faicts to appear. The loftiest reputation, the widest popularity, the most magnificent charlatanism of the century was made to crumble at the touch of this talisman of truth; and the work was so thoroughly done that if the Committee had no other claim on the gratitude of the Republic than having toppled down McClellan from his self-erected pedestal, it would not have existed in vain, nor would posterity withhold from it a tribute of lasting admiration.- Tribune. M. c Icellaneta Ite.] s. Governor Bross delivered a spirit stirring address to the people of Virginia, Nevada, on the 25th ult. Forest City, Cal., was entirely destroyed by fire on the 28th alt. Mrs. Sims was burned to death, and Mrs. Jane Gloss burned severely. The post-office and telegraph office shared the fate of the city. A "delegation" from our navy is to visit Russia during the summer. There will be an addition madeto our squadrons at all for eign ports, so that American citizens will not. again bave to seek the protection of the British Consuls, as has so often been the case heretofore. The postmasters in' the rebel States, to the number of nine hundred, are about to suffer in real estate for their defalcations. Most of them were heavily in debt to the Government at the commencement of the rebellion, and a special act of Congress per mits the seizure of real estate in satisfac tion of the claims of the Department against postmasters. It is reported that a large quantity of cin nabar has been lately discovered at New Almeda, Cal. lowles, .illigan and .lersey, whose sen tence for treason was commuted to incar ceration, are now at'the Ohio Penitentiary. The Enterprise of the 30th, has a myste rione column of verse on the fair sex there located, in which one lady is compared to the Maelstrom,which absorbs everything and grinds it to pieces. Perhaps she has a large appetite. The eyes of Niobe (red with cry ing) are assigned to a charming duleinea; another is described as, "a lace spangled matron teeming with love." A Miss M-r-sh-ll was deemed "of Heaven a sign." As they "neither marry nor are given in marriage" up there, we should say this was not much of a compliment to Miss M. The funniest toouh is thus written: "Diamonds lashed o'er hae ike the gs is her soul, Announctug to mortals Nick Ar----n's Qi..," CGl is what must have been meant. A girl with "geme in her soul" would be able to make her own terms with Barnum. It also appears that the gay sparks of Nevada go whissing and puffing "like an engine that reels," st the heels of- their sweethearts. We would send them some photographs to coasole them, if we did not know that the deocriptious wee intended for high compli ments. As for the. ualaeky poetaster, if Mesdemolselles Maelstrom, NiQbe, or "the signot Heaven" (hopeless old maid ) don't attend to his ease, it is no basines of ours; but i is ot in eacht verse that we should siu o 4 1 fair ladies of Montena.

The Grand Jury of the District of Columbia on the 26th inst., indicted Jefferson Davis and John Cabul Breckinridge for high trea son. The trial was to take place before the civil court, composed of Chief Justice D. K. Carter and Judges Olin and Wiley. The overt act was the last July raid within the District of Columbia. District Attorney Carrington asked for a bench warrant for Breckinridge, who had not been caught, and that steps should be taken to bring Davis before the court for trial. The indictment sets forth that Jefferson Davis. late of the county of Henrico, in the State of Virginia, Yeoman, being an inhab itant of and resident within the said United States of America, and owing allegiance and fidelity to the said United States of America, not having the fear of God before his eyes, nor weighing the duty of his said allegiance, but being moved and seduced by the insti gation of the devil, wickedly devising and disturbing the peace and tranquility of the United States, did move and excite rebellion in the year 1864, being the leader and com mander-in-chief of the insurgents, who, under his direction, did unlawfnlly and traitorously assemble, to the number of 2,0(0 and upward, and marched in a war like manner-that Is to say, with drums and colors, with cannon, muskets, carbines, swords, cutlasses, and other warlike weap ons. as well offensive as defensive, from the said county of Henrico. in the State of Virginia aforesaid. to the county of Wash ington aforesaid, in the District of Columbia aforesaid, and levying war against the United States government by assaulting, attacking and making war upon a certain fort of the United States of America, called Fort Stevens, and known as Fort Stevens, the said Fort then and there being used and occupied by the military forces of the said United States of America, and did then and there, to-wit, on the day and year last afore said, at the county and in the district last aforesaid, and within the jurisdiction of this Court, with force and arms, wickedly and traitorously, by means of the said cannon, muskets, carbines, pistols, swords, cutlasses, powder, shot, shells, cartridges, percussion caps, and other warlike weapons, so fur nished, provided and supplied by the said Jefferson Davis, as aforesaid, oppose, attack, assault and make war upon the troops and military forces of the said United States of America, then and there assembled, and did kill and wound a large number, to-wit : the number of five hundred and upward of the said troops of the said United States of America, and persons then and there, to-wit. on the day and year last aforesaid, and in the county and district aforesaid, and within the jurisdiction of this court, being a part or tae military forces of said United States of America; and the jury say that he, the said Jefferson Davis, with the said insur gents, so traitorously assembled, armed and arra7ed as aforesaid, most wickedly, mali ciously and traitorously, did ordain, pre pare, levy and carry on war against the said United States of America, for the subver sion of the government of the said United States of America, contrary to the duty of his said allegiance and fidelity, against the Constitution, peace and government of this United States of America, and against the form of the statute of the said United States of America, in such case made and provided.

By the arrival of the mail steamer Sacra mento we learn that the steamshi) Golden Rule, running on the line from New York to Nicaragua, was wrecked on the morning of the 30th of May, on Roncador reef, about thirty miles from the Island of Old Provi dence. The steamer was bound from New York to Greytown, Nicaragua, and had on board about six hundred and twenty passen gers for San F.ancisco, besides a full crew, all of whom were saved and landed on the Island. The passengers only saved what clothing they had on. Provisions and bed dihg were landed from the wreck, and tents were built from the sails. John M. Rogers, purser, reached Aspinwall on the 6th of Jone, being nine days in an open boat. The United States steamers Hantwell and State of Georgia left Aspinwall for the wreck, and returned on the 11th of June with all the passengers. When these steamers left the island, the Golden Rule was fast going to pieces, and wreckers were at work. 'The Golden Rule's passengers crossed the Isthmus June 12th, and embarked on board the Amerie. the same davy The Precits Corriengea of Panama, says. Captain Dennis, of the Golden Role, had been celebrating his birth-day, and was intoxieated at the time of the wreck. When urged to leave his cabin and put the vessel on the right course, he had a cyprian with I him, and refused to come out, saying the ship was all right. In half an hour she struck. His eonduet after the wreck is stig. matized as brutal. The officers of the Hnutwell and State of Georgia, also of the Americas, and the residents of Aspinwall and Panama, are heartily commended for their exertions in behalf of the sufferers from the wreek. 4 The Golden Rule was insured for sixh&n dred thousand dollarh.

The excitement in Lewiston, consequent upon the gold discoveries in Coeur d'Alene mountains, has been steadily on the increase; whether from adequate cause, the reader, upon receiving such facts as we are in pose session of, must be his own judge. But one man, that we are aware of, has come to Lewiston during the week from the Coeur d'Alene mountains. This man-a Frenchman-tells a straightforward story, and the fact that he is going right back set ties its truthfulness, in our mind. He came d in for supplies, yesterday-started out in the evening, and has not been seen in town d since. We presume he is now under way, f returning. He states that the gold of the basin he is operating in is coarse, and that S the basin is quite extensive. He bad fre e quently ges a dollar to the pan. He seemed d to impart what imformation was drawn from him reluctantly. He would not, or could not, disclose the exact locality; but it is understood to be not over sixty or seventy miles from Coeur d'Alene Mission. This man's statements, so far as they go, may, we believe, be depended upon. A Mr. Donnelly came in, yesterday, from the Spokane river. He represents the excite ment all along the road to be more intease, if possible, than here. Packers, who were destined for Kootenai, left their trains is charge of Indians, and turned of in. search of the new gold fields.. The fever had become general among those whose original intention it was to go to Fisherville, sad Kootenai was dropped from mind among them as a by-gone. Mr. D. met thirty or thirty-five bound from Lewiston to CgOr d'Alenc, and several different parties from Walla Walls. As parties have been forover a week leaving hero daily, and others are constantly starting oat, he could not have seen but a small per centage of the full number on the road. Mr. Scranton, of this place, came in from Fisherville last Saturday -nearly a week earlier than Mr. Donnelly -and he gives about the same version of dairs. Here we will let the matter rest, boping by our next, to be in possession of decisive faots.-N. I. Radiator. ACCOWDIbG to "Langley's Directory," San Francisco contains a population of 142,000 souls, has 14,443 buildings, and 1,654 estab lishments where liquors are retilled. There are three persons, on the average, employed in each liquor establishment, making 4,962 employed in that business alone. From these figures, it will be seen that in nearly every eighth building there is a liquor saloon, that there is one saloon for every sixty-sight inhabitants, and that about every twenty second person aaked a living for imself (and family if he has one,) out of tbhYI' ae business. While the bibulous appetitle~ men are thus provided for, there are 63 hotels, boarding houses and restauran, to provide solids for the inner man. Thus where there is osne public drinkin; pinace to 68 inhabitants, there is one public feeding place for each 174.
