EcConnville, of the Lewiston volun teers, starts to-day to skirmish the country in the vicinity of Slate creek to find the di rcction Joseph has taken. The Malheur Indians in Baker county, Oregon, are restless, and fears are enter tained that they will effect a junction with the hostiles.

The opinion at headquarters is that he will strike for the Buffalo country. Joseph has now a day and a half start of the troops. Gen.

Hanimond said he *as not stripped, and Thomson at once run over the course and claimhned the stakes.' The judges, hav ing considered the matter, as per the follow ing, declare his claim void : DEER LODGE, July 5, 1877. We, the undersigned, selected as judges of the foot-race between George Hamrmond and C. D. Thomson, having arbitrated the question whether the race was run and won on July 5, 1877, as claimed by said Thomson decided there was no race, and he is not en titled to the main stakes under the articles of agreement as signed by them. (Signed,) Thos. STVART, N. BEERY, At the time of going to press we are not advised whether the race will be run Friday or not. From the Madisonian. On the Fourth of July a terrible accident happened to Charles Clifton, by wuich his right arm was blown to atoms. It appears that a party of men were celebrating at Strawberry City, and Clifton held a piece of Giant powder in his hand with a fuse and cap attached, intending to throw it away before it exploded. He held it too long, however, and the powder exploded with terrific force, tearing his hand and arm into shreds. We feel some degree of local pride in chronicling the fact that Masters Willie % ord, Lewis Yager, Charles Barber, and Alton Bower, toutr Virgina youths who have been in attendance at the Kemper Family School, Boonville, Missouri, during the last year, were, in the examination at that in stitute, on the 19th ult., distinguished above all the school for excellence in scholarship and deportment during the academnic year. This school ranks among the best in the country, not only for the excellence of its facilities for the education of puples, but al sofor the superior discipline and training which are (njoined upon them. From the Herald The races yesterday at the Fair Grounds, under the management of the M. A. M. & M. A., attracted a crowd of people--some thing over 300. Considerable'·ronej chang-. ed hands on the result of the races, yet there was nothing like the betting that .occurs during Territorial Fair week. :The first race was a .hif mile dash. ' with the following horses entered :. John IZnnis by James HIalford'; B'lackbird, by H. R. Baker; Terlulia, b.y C. E. Williams.

She would sell for $10, and second' and; third choice for $xe, eh. She was f!eely oqilbred against the field. The race was .a spirited, exciting one;. and at the out-come it was not the easiest thing in thev world for the jitdges: to tell which horse took second money. The race was recorded 's follows: Blackbird........ ............. ..................... 1st May Toland..........................2nti Terlulia................................................3di Time, 1 22.

This is also the time set down for the trial of the Ex cise Commissioners. Lawyer Mundy says that Messrs. Koster & Bial were arrested, but Mr. Bial denies this. He adds that the officer who requested them to appear show ed no warrant of arrest nor other legal doc ument. Nevertheless they intend to go to court " to see the fun."
