The people are forsaking their homes and gathering to gether for protection. All the Nez Perces of that region are moving in the direction of Idaho, and it is believed are going to join their brethren in the war against the whites. The Flatheads, in whom the settlers have long bestowed implicit confidence, leaving their families at their niercy and their doors unlocked when absent with perfect safety, begin to show signs of hostility. They are moving their families and stocK as if p'repar ing to make Bitter Root and Missoula the battlefield. The emergency is one that demands prompt and decisive action on the part of the govermnent. All the available troops ill the Territory should be at once hurried to our western frontier, and as the force in the Territory is wholly inadequate to withstand a general outbreak of the friendly tribes, ntmore troops should be hurried forward at once. In tie meantime the people should arm and organize for Felt defense. The people of the Territory generally should :;e prepared, and hold themselves in readiness to go to the relief of their neighbors of tne West Side in case government should ftail them. Prompt action on the part of the people may prevent a war. Governor Potts, on being applied to, for warded arms and ammunition to Missoula without delay, and we feel assured will do all in his power to assist the people. THE BITTER ROOT INDIANS! Fears of an Outbreak. Friday's Independent says: The following 7'as received by the Governor last evening frlom Mr. Sutherlial of the HIUSBANDM1AN, and is, of course, from a disinterested source: MISSOULA, June 25, 1877. Gov. B. F. POTTS-DEAR SIR : There is 10o doubt but that the Indians in the Bitter Root are bent on mischief. There is ascarci ty of arms and ammunuition. If you have guins that can be had by the citizens upon :any consideration, I hope you will not hesi tate to seud them by express to the care of some responsible person here, to be given to the farmers for the protection of their homes and families. The Indians have, to day, moved all their stock and families away. An old, reliable and friendly Flat head came into the settlement, at Corvallis and told his friend, a white man, to move his family at once. The farmers think of fortitying at Stevensville, but they can do but little without arias and ammunition. 'The mail is about to close. I cannot give furthrj. particula~.s. W. ii. St:THEIRLIy. The Nez Perces on the Move. BITTER ROOT AND MISSOULA. The Intelligence of the Nez Perees war in Idaho reached here through half-breed In dians two or three days in advance of the news by mail. The Nez Perces of this sec tion are moving towards Idaho, and are doubtless going to join in the war. They are well equipped with horses, guns and ammunition. Fears are entertained here that when routed by the troops in Idaho the entire Indian force will fall back together and seek revenge by making war upon the settlements of Bitter Root and Missoula valleys. The two companies of soldiers for the new Post will arrive to-morrow. The officers and soldiers are delighted with the beauty of the country, and the prospects of game, fishing,. and the delicious fruits to be had here. Button-holing and wire-pulling for post contracts are in order just now. The contracts for lumber, building, etc., will be closed on the 25th, and the building of the new post will be commenced at once. The crops are in advance of the East Side. But little is being said of the grass hoppers. It is thought that their force is too small to materially damage the crops. A few farmers, however, in the upper part of Bitter Root valley have been entirely cleaned up. The hills and valleys are beau tiful and green, and the air is balmy. The roadside along my route is lined with ripen ing berries, and I feel like saying this is Montana's paradise. Strawberries are plen tiful and delicious. I send four quarts of Bass' best for the HUSBANDMAN folks, with the compliments of WILL. Missoula, M. T., June 24, 1877. HOMOCIDE IN HELENA. Between 3 and 4 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon Fred. L. King: shot and killed James Burnell in front of Curtis & Booker's store in IIelena. The shot took effect in Burnell's left side, the bullet ranging down ward, and penetrating through the body, 'lodging beneath the skin over the right hip joint. The:wounded man turned and ran, passing through the saloon on Main street, foot of Broadway, and down the rear steps, a few yards from which he fell and imme diately expired. King was arrested and had his prelimi nary examination Thursday afternoon. The evidence went to show that Burnell had made improper proposals to King's wife, and had also offered to put King out of the way, which she reported to her husband. Three witnesses swore to hearing Burnell say that he would kill King, about ten min utes before the shooting took place. King was sworn and said he had known Burnell six or eight months; in passing Garrigan & Dwyer's saloon yesterday he overheard Burnell's threat to murder him; fifteen or twenty minutes afterwards he shot him; in killing Burnell he not only had de fended his own life, but the honor and hap piness of his family, which was dearer to him than life. E. J. Harris and A. B.. Babcock testified to the desperate character of the deceased. After hearing the evidence the court held King to answer, and fixed his baiil at $2,000. SPRAY. A home rule-the kitchen poker. Cool, but not always collected-an ice bill. Nothing in this bleak world is easier to start and harder to stand than a boil or a daily paper. It is said that "a murder never forgets the face of his victim." That mus: be hard on proof readers. Editors would make good barbers, for they are accustomed to pilling on soft soap; and so would bankers, for tlhey are good on a shave. INTERNATIONAL HOTEL. HELENA, MONTANA.
