TIHE LATEST REP'ORTS FROM MERRITT'S COM M AND. CnrtAoo, Oct. 9.--Nothing new regarding the Indian war has been received at head quarters to-day. Dodge is commended for having made the perilous march through an infestod country with forty men and forced his way through the savages Into camp. The Indians have a opcullar hatred for these col ored troops, which the latter return with in terest. Morrltt's report is criticised as giv ing no important facts respecting the situa tion on Milk river, and as being taken up with the laudation of various subordinates, the na ture of whose services he fails to disclose, and whom he should, at any rate, commend in a future written report. It is believed that the consolidated command are by this time en route for the White river agency. The great est interest is manifested for the safety of that post. The report that the Indians have been killing men and carrying off the women is discredited. MERRITr'S RELIEF OF PAYNE. RAwrINs, Wy., Oct. 9.-Lieut. Almy, of SGen.

The plan of the Yorktown centennial in 1'81 Is to have a grand encampment of military from all the States, opening on October 1, 1881, and continuing throughout the month. It is Iroposed that the initiative steps toward making the arrangements be taken next month, on the ninety-eighth anniversary of the surrender, when it is expected the Gov ernors of the thirteen original States, by In vitation of Gov. Hoyt, will assemble in Inde pendence Hall, Philadelphia, for that pur pose. As the nineteenth, the anniversary proper, will fall upon Suuday, it is the inten tion of the Governors to meet in Carpenter's Hall on the previous day, and go thence on a visit to the permanent exhibition. On Sunday, if the present plan be carried out, the Governors will attend Divine ser vice in Christ Church, on Second street, above Arch, where Washington worshiped. It is on the following day. Monday, that the meeting in Independence Hall is proposed to be held, at which plans of action are to be discussed. Afterthe meeting the Governors will proba bly visit the proposed site at Yorktown, and upon returning home it is the desire that they shall report to their respective Legis tures, with a view of having them send to Congress a memorial for the purpose of establishing a national interest in the project.

It was in the reign of Alexis Mlkhallovitch, father of Peter the Great, about the middle of the seventeenth c"ntury, that 8ibe la received its lirst caravan of criminals, and there has been a re'gular annual succession of them since. The yearly contingent Increased large ly under the late Emperor Nicholas, and from about 8(5)0 in the middle of his reign the total number of transported persons has risen to 18,(K000 or 19,000 under Alexander II., or (com prislng other countries than liberia) 20,0(Xk While a portlon of these convicts In Siberla are condemned to hard labor another and much larger portion simply hold the position of forced colonists forbidden to leave a cer tainu place. The government of Tobolak alone rfceives nearly half of the convicts. From 1870 to 1875 there were transported to Western Siberia 40,(000 persons and a little under 3O,000 to Eastern Siberia. In such a multitude, dis persed over immense spaces, and the majori ty on such free terms, it is not easy always to maintain discipline and prevent desertions, and it is not surpristng that criminality at tains frightful proportions. In the govern ment of robolak there is on an average one crime committed annually per seventy-two convicts. Cherokee Desperadees. Barker, the Cherokee desperado, who was hunted down and killed near Muskogee, in the Indian Territory, last week, stood at the head of the list of Western outlaws. He was of white skin though his blood was tainted and he claimed Cherokee citizenship. He was six feet tall, straight as an arrow and of stout frame. Twenty-eight years of crime (for his life was fullof it from the cradle) had stamped fiercely upon his Indian features the marks of the dare-devil, who expected to die with his boots on and with the whistle of bullets in his ear. His first crime was that of wholesale cattle stealing. So imperfect are the laws in the Indian Territory that Barker and his men o rode with free boots and boldly for many e years. Triplet, a half-breed Cherokee; Scog B den, the Mexican, and Mason, the Texan, were his lieutenants. Men were waylaid, murdered and robbed by them time and again. It is said that every citizen of the Cherokee coun try carried a special bullet in his pocket for Barker. Theculminating atrocity of the band it came about on the mornin of the second of n August last, when they gaed into the vii lght iocked the pý drving th r iuem men, women and children, like a ao*d tf sheep out into the woods.

All the Administrators being now at thebl poets, the City Hall has resumed Itst.ivittt in the matter of routine business, there beingli very little else, apparently, going on there.. The money paid for the City Railroad fra i chises has undoubtedly found its way intothe city treasury without any attempted htl-. drance on the part of the courts. Oarondele street is of the opinion that the city 1s buylat up premium bonds very heavily, or to more correctly has already effcted nearly of its purchases. Whilst the brokers w.re awaiting the consummation of the contract, it is believed that the purchase price had fe two or three weeks been turned over to tbhe credit of the municipality, and premium bonds were being taken in at a low Ilaure,.f s an average of about twenty-nine cents on the. dollar. At that figure it can be easily com puted how much of the outstanding bond# tave been gathered in w'Ath the $6a0,000 p0at. for the railroad franchises. RATIMICATION.
