A second edition of the Modoc war is being worked off in Oregon the band which is seeking extermination at this time being of the Nez Peroes tribe. The number of savages in the vicinity and likely to be, if not already involved, is reported at about two thousand fight ing men. That they are able and en tirely willing to give serious trouble is made unfortunately too apparent by the fact that in an engagement with two companies of soldiers, reinforced by friendly Indians, and a considerable party of armed citizens, the redskins obtained the advantage, surrounded the whites in a canon, and, at the time of the departure of a straggler who brought the first news of the battle, were in a fair way to reproduce the most terrible fea tures of the Custer massacre. The sol diers appear to have fallen into the fatal blunder so common in like oases of un derrating the numbers and fighting qualities of thelndians. Of course there is no military force in the neighborhood adequate to the task of chastising the murderous bands, who are butchering the settlers and laying waste the whole region around them. General Howard, who is in command, is gathering all the available troops from various posts in the department, and will probably be in a position for effective operations by the time the savages have wiped out the settlements. The disturbance seems to have arisen ifrom the murder of some Indians by whites, the savages retali. ating with a general massacre of set tiers.--[Ohicago Times. KICKING [Burlington Hawkeye.] It is rumored that parties in Wash ington, in their kindness, are willing to furnish the Republican State Conven tion a lot of ready-made resolutions in dorsing the President's policy. We don't know that this is true, but we do know that it any such resolutions are presented in the convention, they will be kicked out, and the man who sends them will receive a rebuke that he will remember for the balance of his life. It may do for the powers that be in Washington to send a commission into a Southern State to trade and dicker away the victory that was gained at the cost of life itself, but it wil l not do to at tempt to "manage" Iowa on the Stan ley-Matthews plan, and if the attempt is made it will receive the rebuke it de serves. iemember St. Paul's vision and the divine rebuke he then received.

Lotus, June 19.-The First Na tional Bank of the State of Missouri announces to-night, through an adver tisement that will appear in to-morrow morning's papers, that it has closed its doors on account of the stringency of the times, and that application has been made by telegraph to the Controller of the Currency for the appointment of a receiver to take charge of the assets. The only reason given for its suspen sion is its allegjd inability to make money, on account of which a liquida tion is thought best for all parties con cerned. The bank has for a long time been considered almost the wealthiest in St. Louis, the capital stock being $2,000 000 and the deposits large. It was the depositary for United States funds in 3t. Louis, and had the reputa tion of being exceedingly cautious and safe in its business transactions. The doors were opened during regular bank ing hours to-day, and business was car ried on as usual, there being no intima tion of an intended suspension. The event will undoubtedly create a great sensation in commercial and financial circles here, and there is a feeling among those who have heard of it to night that other smaller banking con cerns will follow. The president of the bank is James H. Britton, one of the stanchest citizeps of St. Louis. It is recollected now that certain holders of stock in the concern have been crowd ing the market for the last few days with their stock, but this circumstance excited no suspicion at the time. It is thought that depositors will be paid, but this is a mere opinion, and the ac tual probabilities are that an exhibit will show a discouraging prospect for all parties concerned. Officers of the bank, in answer to in quiries, state to-night that the deposits amount to $2,250,000, and that the as sets are ample to meet them. Twenty five per cent will be paid at once, twenty-five per cent in thirty days, and the remainder within six months. The United States Government is a depositor to the extent of $100,000, and the city of St. Louis $245,000. Secured security bonds said to be questionable. It is stated upon good authority that the suspension of the bank is due to bad securities taken to a large amount quite recently. [NoTE.-Specials to the DEMOCRAT have stated that the bank was sound, and suspended simply because there was no immediate prospect of a profitable business.] .. .---1 14b .. HME FALL ELECTIONS. The first election to be held during the present year will be that of Ken tucky, August 6. A Governor and a Legislature are to be elected, and the Legislature will choose a United States Senator in place of Thos. C. McCreery, whose term expires in 1879. Vermont will vote for State officers September 4; Maine will elect State officers Septem ber 10; and it is possible that a secret warfare, if not an open one, between the Hayes and Blaine factions of the Republican party may bring about some strange developments. On September 5, California will elect a Governor and a Legislathre. In 1875, Irwin (Democrat) was elected Governor by a majority of 435 over both the Republican and Inde pendent candidates. The Legislature to be elected will choose a United States Senator in place of Aaron A. Sargent (Republican), whose term expires in 1879. In the present Legislature the Democratic majority on joint ballot is 54. It is safe to say that a Democrat will succeed Sargent. The Iowa and Ohio elections occur October 9. Both States elect State officers, and in Ohio the Legisla ture to be elected will choose a United States Senator in place of Stanley Mat thews (successor to John Sherman), whose term expires in 1879. The No vember elections are those of Massa chusetts, Mississippi, New York, Penn sylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin, all of which occur November 6. The difference between a watch and an insurance company seems to be that when you wind up one it goes on, and when you wind up the other it doesn't. THISE WOLII) ESTIMATE OF GRANT. The London Times, speaking of Gen. Grant says: "It is, as we have ob served, not a little remarkable that these tokens of national esteem should have been bestowed upon a politician who quits the political scene probably forever, and who is discredited as the leader, or at least the most conspicuous chief, of a broken party. It would be idle to deny that the faction which traded so long upon Gen. Grant's emi nent services was completely routed at the elections of November last, and that President Hayes, though nominally representing the same principles, is at tached to a different order of ideas, and appeals to a different level of popular sympathies. The honors paid to Gen. Grant are, therefore, all the more slg nificant. They prove that democracles do not always forget great national benefits, and that they appreciate good intentions even when these intentions too manifestly fail to correspond with results. Gen. Grant has no longer any political influence in the United States, yet he is treated with more ceremonious homage than would be bestowed upon the most powerful of cabinet ministers, or even upon the President himself." MENSIBLE MENTIMENTS. PHILADELPHIA, Pa., June 19.-In a letter written by Gen. Grant to Geo. W. Ohilds, dated June 6, he gives some de scription of his voyage and the atten tion he received in England. He says: "I appreciate the fact, and am proud of it, that the attentions I am receiving are intended more for our country than for me personally. I love to see our country honored and respected abroad, and I am proud to believe that it is by most all nations, and by some even foved. It has always been my desire to see all jealousies between England and the United States abated, and every sore healed. They are more powerful for the spread of commerce and civili zation than all others combined, and can do more to remove causes of wars by creating mutual interests that would be so much destroyed by war." We were in some doubt as to the prop. er method to address the Czar several years ago, and hesitating a little, his Majesty said with a genial smile, "Nev er mind, old fellow; call me Aleck."
