What Tiicy Want From the Government and Wh<*t Red Clone! Will Do in Ktw York, No Indian'-* who )uve visited New York since the earlier administrations of the national government liuve excited so much Interest us Bpoite l Tall and his party. Hence yesterday v/as their worst day of trial and annoyance, because their prior stay at the Astor House was on Mum'ay. From early In the morning till their leaving tlie city, at nine o'clock P. M., large crowd.* a? embit d around the old gianite hotel to obtain a glimpse or tiic savages. Th y hud ample opportunities. ' Spotted Tall and his chiefs rose about seven o'clock, after a comfortable rest upon the (loor; for the red men do not u-e beds?they are considered vulgar. Assoounsihey descended to the office on the route to breakfast they were appioactied by a newsboy. From hfm Spotted Tall purchased two papers?the Hehai.d, which he folded carefully away and stowed In his blan iici, una me isauing tocai paper wnicn, ultor twisting it Into the u?ual iorin, he preserved for hti cJg.vr lighter, to he ufed after breikfast, at the same timo rem-ukingr Its convenient size. Ho also announced hln attention of having the Ubkai.u translated fur the benertt of tne Sioux Indians upon reaching lii i ft?r di-tant home. Spotted Tall then r palrel to tha breakfast room, and with lus august associates settled down into A CRUSADE rrON UTETSON'fl I'ltOVBNDKH. The Indian nas a wonderful appetite. He likes soup and causes a goo l fixed wave to roll over the walls of the i late. O.hcrwHe he does much as Chesterfield did. He eats ills fill. After breakfast they smoked, and smol ed some i admirable Partagas sent up by Mr. Stetson on a Bilver waiter. Lounging completed the programme until twelve o'clock, when the Hon. William M. Tweetl, it is said, appear ,d and presented 1 Spotted Tall wlt:i 1U3 parchment of honorary ; membership in tti; Tammany Society. Carmines were now ordered, and Captain Poo'.e, United H'ates Army, and the interpreter accompanied the suite to tlie venicle. In passing into Yes y street a h tmati blockade was lor.r.ed. The Indians Instinctively : ought their tomahawks, b.u tliey were nowliere. They then subsided to the tolls of a New York crowd i and devoted themselves to glances and INQUISITORIAL REM AUKS. Everybody rushed to the front doors to Bee the < party. as it drove down Broadway, and the ( usual regiment of boys escorte 1 the carriages ] to tho dock. At the Battery the excltemeut was 1 immense?nothing like it in a Iguk time. The sailors ! were In high glea. They took linear ob ervatious of the aborigines, nicemcd them by the marlln ppike | and malnbrace and thought they were frauds. They : were now on their way to the French frigate Ma*iclenne, 1} lng In tho stream. They embarked in one < of the French man-of-war's colters, and wera j tickled at the steadlucss and concert oi action ot ] the oar.jmcn. All craft In the narbor stopped 1 to wonder, and they steamed oil", leaving In their j wake the Inquiry?"Is that all?" Tho cutter was 1 pullet) m to the ship's side and Captain Pooie 1 touched hla hat to the omcer of the deck. The j yards were manned; the guns were llred in salute, Spotted Tall walked up the companion ladder, and Ms companions followed. ADMIRAL LEFEBKB advanced and met tho pariy with his well cho?cn suavity, and Spotted Tall allowed a faint smile to creep over his aboriginal features for tne first time. ThA Anttr* imrfcir ivnm ftnnilnWfifl tn nil nnrta rvr v.^. ver^el. They examined the battery and asked many questions concerning the language spoken by the biirguus. They were particularly Interested In the percussion "aimers, in iho marvcllo.is friction primers and attentively considered the nnvy lucK, whkh they thought to be unequalled aiiywliere. The buttle axes wero their especial envy. Tliey quietly Muted the propriety of appropriating several, but no one took the hint, 01 course they went Into ttio magazine, the shell room and actually laughed at the ciuinny rig above decks. The mammoth spars were especially afBosmg. The marines and sailors went through inspection and drill and the Indians waited t;> hear the war whoop. They thought the parade w.iii very tine tor Frenchmen. Baron von fcchiewitz, ol the Prussian corvette Arcana, La Touch Treville and others were present. The Indians then partook ol qiwlquj chose d manger. Weil, alter one o'clock the red men returned to the Astor House, and alter ward VISITKD l-ISK'S STEAMERS at pier No. 80 North river. Mr. 1'iak received them with courtly grace, and the Indians Were astonish-d at what they saw. Admiral Fitsk placcd his steamers at their disposal. They next paid a visit to the monitor in the bay, and afterward to the new Court House. Wnen tola that the large marble building had cost upward or $8,000,000, the Indiana remarked that they would immediately learn tue traile or buUding houses *for the pale lac-s. 'l'liey returned to their icouis 1 and foig.it a much needed rest, where they re- 1 iiiiiined until five o'clock. ' In the eartler part of the day, and during the al>. ^ geuce of the Indiana at the Astor House, the \ < rowds kept increasing ratlier than diminishing, 1 ami all sorts were fca.nered m thick platoons about the oorndors and parlors and wa-ting rooms. AT TWO O'CLOCK the crowd had grown to mammoth proportions. Us size was dreadfully augmented, and there Were thousands upon thousands of the curiosity seekers witlun the building. The oMee was simply a lam, a giand Jam, and all seemed delighted with the situation. How cnarmltig it was to dwell in such a crowd 1 i Like all American throngs, of course no one "chawed" tobacco, no one smoked cigars, but all were perfectly temperate, virtuous and happy. Ail were intensely interested iu the Indians. This was truth, but truth is always ptrange. Murmurs, curses, echoes of wonder and grunts of amazement, all mixed with ticenes of astonishment, were born 'of ttie ubsenibiage. Still no Indians came. Eyes were mourned on long noses after th; fashion of a telescope, nr.d the owner of tiiese convenient physical utensils would direct (hem at the supposed vicinity of the red men of the woods, flow Impossible and au:urd was this !

So the time continued, and all eutereu Into the spirit of the occasion?no one with more elegant aud refined satisfaction thnn the Oaehives of business, literary and practical scribblers, who took PKICFEKKED STOCK IN THE OCCASION. The stetsons in the meantime became very thoughtful. Tuey did not like to be belca^urcd on bo hot a day by so hot a crowd. The reporter noted t!iis, and made a flourish after the fact, a *ort of an accessory reminder. Presently all the Stetsons frowned vigorously, and In one time in two motions.

The renown aud prestige which the club enjoys will doubtless be fully sustained, anjl should tho proverbial clerk overhead be favorably incline l in bis dispensation of the weather a magnificent exhibition will unquestionably take place. No plea-ant, fuu nlng breeze Js desired. It must biow half a gJ*i outside the lIot<l$ to jenlUe the expecta turns of the well known yachtmen who will participate In the display. There in probably no institution in the universe In which exists ho much friendly rivalry us In the New York Yacht Club. With a Heel of schooners Inferior to none, with all the modern appliances aud improvements which science aud experience have suggested and characterized by that sterllug spirt which ever marks genuine yachtmen, the members of the club hive ever carried out the commendable Intentions with which the organization was Hist founded. Moreover, the rapid nud progressive strides which the event pastime has made during the rftat 'ew yeai'8 have been attended by the most beneficial reunits In the way of naval architecture; mid keeping pace with the astonishing advance of yachting gout-rally, the yuchtmen of the New York Club have spared no pains to bring their vessels as uear die standard of perfection as money, skill, tynow^ed^ aud experiment could possibly do.

An Invalid ISlint up In n Room with n >!ad uuj-ne iku>?tnc /\tiiiii.u w.iu j.it i ruiiti. [From t'.ic Detroit Free Press, Jaue 8.] About two months ago, wiule assisting to rig out a vessel lu the rivof, a man named Peter Demery, living on Peterb jro ftieet, 111 tno. northern outskirts of the city, tnuik a rusty rplko turougU cite sole of hi.j lt*H foot, and luts ever since been laid up with the accident, once narrowly c-icaplng an aitick or lockjaw. Ills lamlly consi .t of wife and buy, tlie latter about ten years old. On Sunday afternoon the motl.er aud boy went on a visit to some l'riends on <;ratiot road, leaving tlie invalid lying 011 it bed tha stood in a recess of tlie front room. In fact, there Is but one room in the house, the boy occupying a lounge at night. As Deinery goes about011 a eiuich, lie had a heavy one lying on the ocd when the lamily went away. For three years th? family had owned a large cur dog. The dog wan tod to go with t lie boy, but was driven back and laid uown 011 tne step. I).-tilery states that he had read for about an hour, wh'n his attention was attracted to tlie dog. The animal had walked in at the open door and Blood In the centre of the room, utteriiu a growling, wheezing sort of nolsa, tils eyes shining and the hair on his back bustling up straight, lie spoke sharply to the auiin.il, who slunk under the bed, keeping up a howling as if in pain. A window is situated near the lece-s and almost opposite the door, and this was up a little way at the bottom, the sash being held np by a hook. A sudden breeze coming up created a draught that s'.amnted the door Bhut, and Denary and ills dog were thus shut up, as it were, together, lie slates that the dog kept up his annoying tones until he finally spoke sharply to him, when ail at ouse the brute nounded from under the bed and commenced running around the room. If is eye a were full of blood, he kept snapping his iaws together like a trap and every hair on the aniuial seemed to stand erect. Tflero was 110 foam about tlie brute's jaws, but lie nmtrtrwl n um't (if niwIuv talivit flint a/>i<ntiiil r)it? r< rmi like musk, ltouud lie weut, turning over chairs, snapping at t.ie blowing window curtain every time lie passed, an 1 each time lie leaped over the cook stove, which stood Jmt out from t!ie wall. Demcry did not realize that lie invoked any danger lu speaking to t ie dog; he regarded tlie affair a-i arising: from u deslro of tlie dog t > got out and follow the uoy. 80 he j elled sharply at the brute, biddintt him lie do.vn. The dog, Just then, had hailed near the door, and Demcry was raised up 011 his elbow, holding his crutch in one hand, as he had a not ton to hobble over and open tue door, llardiy m d lie spoken when tlis dog bound? forward, giving a fearful howl. Instinctively the man extended his crutch, which came In cowact with the d< g's head, uud he went toiling on llie floor. Whence got up 11 was to resume his race around tnc room, looking more frightful tliau ever. Uemery sprang on the back side of the bal, close to the wail, hold mg his crutch ready for d force, Imt hoping that the mad brute wonld 1101 again a;tack him. it was now time when Deraery might expect his wife and clnld to return at any moiu nt, and It suddenly occurred to linn that ihelr return would only be to meet an attack from t ie dog. If (hey ascended the nteps and opened the door, as was entirely na ural, the d-.ig would bite oue or both. There was 110 longer 100 11 to aoubt that ho wus rabid, uiul tint Ms in utiles* was growing wors- all the tlino, lie ml^ht ii-mt an alarm as tuey srood at tl.e door, but woui I liiey und !rst.ind anu Lee I It in tl iie?

The animal was touring aronud the room narking and 1 Clashing hi* Jaws together, and be stopped, looked up for a moment, and then sprang 'or the bed. lie juht got his paws and bead npon it when down came the crutch and lie rolled over and over. Three times was this repented and the fourth time the animal \vn# stunned by the Mow, and, while he lay gasping on tne tloor, tiie crutch was broken in pieces over i>m head, and he wus afterwards Cn shed off with t to axe; the" national game.

The Vulon Urouuds at Williamsburg presented yestOMay a livelier ajip^irauce than any grouud 111 this vicinity has shown this season. Some 8,000 or io,ooo spectators wore assembled within the enclosure, the stoops, windows and roofs ot tlio houses iu the neighborhood, from which even a glimpse at the game culd be obt.iinod, were crowded; wagons, trucks and any eleva Ion in the adjoining streets which could bj improvised Into i? favorable stiiniUug jilace were nnde use of und covered with human beings anxious to see the famous "red le^s" In their openiug contest?the reasons given iu the IIkku.I) ol Sunday tending to luduoe a large crowd to be present at the game of yesterday.

For instance, lu the fourth inning Egnler mado two bases on a long falr-ioul nit; Nelson followed and bagged the ball at Hucoud?th.tt la, he scut the ball "ro tating hot" against the second base bag: then, boy like, he commeuct 0 dancing at Dm, and linuliy started for second. witu the cool,calculating Uralucrd, Allison and Sweaaey wa chlux him.

In the llulti they were fully as faulty. They did not study tnelr oj poneuts' respective tyles of batting, and the "red 1 e.;s'' batted time alter Mute lu the same direction and were not cared for. Two or t'uve times ihe bull ifas sent whizzing past short stop toward the Held, when Neloa did not ov"ii make a move to reach It. lie seemed rattier to be airaid to face it. ueoigo WrUrli', on t!ie other hand, made alti-mpts to reach, and almost sucejded, tiu bull whenever It came m a similar manner.
