Lava Bed Camp, Cal., May 11, 1873. Yesterday the scouting party under Captain Basbrouek and Donald McKay met the Modocs at the head of Sorass Lake. It seems they had been encamped the night previous, expecting to meet the Indians in that vicin ity, though the only signs seen were fresh tracks of one mule and a pony. Twelve men of Jackson's cavalry were guarding the horses, when, IN THE GRAY OF THE MORNING, Che Modocs attacked tho camp. They had left their horses back some distance and crept upon the sleepers, the first fire killing one and wounding eight men. The soldiers sprang to their arms, and, with the Warm Springs, in a few minutes were driving th^ Modocs. Tt -country was rather open, but still pough, for two miles, which the Modocs must pass to reach the lava bed. THE WARM SPRINGS ran them so fast that the Modocs lost twenty one horses and some loads of ammunition. One Warm Spring was killed. The Indians were driven all day and last night. Donald McKay sent back for water, saying he could hold them. There were THIRTY-FOUR MODOCS IN THE FIGHT? all the band. They were working around for the timbered butte, near the Sand Bluff, where they hope to escape by way of Pit Range, if forced to leave the lava beds. This is a de cisive victory, and will do more to encourage the soldiers and discourage tho Modocs than all the previous fighting. The Warm Springs fought nobly and to the purpose. THE OFFICIAXi REPORT, at half-past seven o'clock this evening, states that the troops lost two killed?Corporal Tot tem, of Troop G, First cavalry, and one Warm Spring Indian. One Modoc is known to be killed, and perhaps others. To-morrow 170 men from thia side are ordered to move towards the scene of tho con flict. General Davis hopes that we now have them whipped, and will improve the occasion. General Gillem will not be interfered with, tor his policy has been true so far. I think We can see the beginning of the end. further Particular* of the Fight. Camp on Lava Beds, May 12, 1873. I had little time in which to give particulars Df the last fight before the courier left. The forces acting against the savages are some twenty-fivo miles from here, and aro working this way, probably driving the Modocs to wards the stronghold they occupied at the time of the Thomas massacre. The troops are moving from this camp this morning, hoping to cut them off before they reach it. ?11 is action now. THE MODOCS WILL BE ALLOWED NO BEST. General Davis says that we have begun an action which will end in exterminating the tribe. It was a great mistake of the Modocs, Who undoubtedly thought they could stam pede this force as they had stampeded others; but they met the Warm Springs. THE INDIANS SUBPBISED. Those warriors started at the first fire as fast as they could get their guns, trotting on tho flank of the Modocs, which surprised them. The cry of the Warm Springs went 'through the Modoc ranks and they were stam peded in place of tho soldiers. The Warm Springs drove them steadily all day, and laid on their flank last night, and will renew tho fight to-day. Batteries A and K loft for the lava beds last oight.

Lava Bids, May 11?9 A. M. I Via Han Khanoi sco, Ma; 12, 1873.1 Despatches from Lieutenant Bnyles* camp state that at Kuunse yesterday the Modocs came Into the camp aud fired on the picket guard. The com mand of Captain Hasbrouck, after scouting all day, had returned to Sorass Lake for water, and were making efforts to secure some by digging, but none could be found. Donald McKay was sent back to Lieutenant I'ayles* camp as an escort of Battery B o; the Fourth artillery, a and B troops, of the' First cavalry, lelt for the scene of the fight, the distance buin^r seventeen miles, and which occu pied all night until dawn oi the next day. Captain Jack's hand rode within one hundred yards of the camp, when all dismounted and charged on tub camp, firing into the herd and guard. The first volley stampeded the herd, which lelt for the camp, and while the men were getting under arms the Modncs gave volley after vollev, killing four sol diers and one Warm Spring Indian. A rally was made and the charge was sounded. This time Donald McKay and some of his men united and drove the Modocs into the timber, capturing twenty-one ponies and three pack mules. One Modoc was left on the field and nineteen mules packed; also Bix dead bodies. Before the retreat the trail was covered with gore. The In dians beat A UASTY BETKBAT towards the McLeod range of mountains. Captain Hasbrouck handled his men dexterously. He is now furnished with five days' supplies, but water is very scarce, which deters a long stay In the field. General Davis is determined to keep the savages moving until the last Modoc is killed. The soldiers gain greater courage, having TIJE ENEMY IN THE OPEN GROUND. The wounded are being brought into camp in wagons, and from there they will be taken to headquarters. Two soldiers are reported mortally wounded. Captain Hasbrouck thinks the Modocs have no ammunition except what they have re maining in their pouches, as they loBt their entire reserve or ammunition In this fight. The cavalry are in camp all safe, captain Jack has but seven animals with him. CAPTAIN JACK WEARING GENERAL CANBY'S UNI- | FORM. He wore the attire of General Canby, and took his position on the field in as lordly a manner as if be had been a brigadier general. The artillery will move at once to the other side of the lake. Enough men will remain In the old stronghold to keep It safe, while the rest will give chase and try to exterminate the fugitives. There were thirty-three Modocs engaged. No squaws were seen during the fight nor by the scouts on thQ ? -> .ITi.j- ... following night. WHERE DID THE MODOCS GET FIXBD AMMUNITION* There Is a strong suspicion that Captain Jack is receiving aid from some unknown party. It ap pears strange how he got six boxes of central primed cartridges. He did not capture them from our forces, and It is certain that he could not have picked np that amount after the battle of January 17. When the ?curler lea the troops were BETWEEN THE LAVA BEDS AND THE INDIANS, the latter being entirely out in the lava beds ?trongbold. The condition of Lieutenant Flarrls Is much the same as last reported, but there Is a greater hope for his recovery. The Troop* in Pnrault. San Francisco, May 13,1873. A despatch from Yreka states that the Modocs are twenty-five miles from the place of the last fight, and are hotly pursued by the troops and the Warm Spring Indians. Reinforcements to General Davii.

The German Bourses Generally and Severely Depressed. Serious Consequenoea of the Money Panio in Vienna-Prussia Preparing to Apply for Leg islative Belief?The Operation of the Aus trian Bank Act Suspended-"Wildcat" Speculation and Other Cause* Which Tended to Produce the Crisis. TELEGRAMS TO THE HEW YORK HERALD. IIkrlin, May 13, 18T3. The Bourses or the principal cities of Germany are extremely depressed in consequence of the money panic In Vienna. The German North government, with a view to the relief of the different centres of'Change, will Introduce amcusure Into the Diet applying Prussia's share of the war contribution to the purchase or bills and public securities to advances for the ac commodation or merchants, and to the redemption of the debt for ra.lway works. THK PRUSSIAN RAILWAYS AND STECCLATIYK POLICY OF THK STATE. The German government proposal to borrow 120,000,000 thalers for a system or railways In Prus sia was the occasion of an animated discussion in the Chamber of Representatives during the latest days of the month of March. The liberal party gen* orally was disposed to support the concentration of the railways in the hands of tho State. The ultramontanists, on the other hand, who, it is alleged, oppose everything that adds to the influ uence of the central government, were hostile to this view. The impression against the govern ment produced oy the debate was very strong, and tho course?so unusual in Prussia?or rcfosing to grant the vote in question by a solemn, decisive vote, was seriously canvassed by the majority. The Austrian Bank Act Suspended. Vienna, May 13, 1873. The operation of the Rank act has been sus pended, its national privilege chartering It to the year 1876 being obliterated. The Austrian Bank Act and Its Pre monitory Difficulties?11 u n|;nrian Ac count of "Wildcat" Speculation. A special correspondence in llungary, dating in PoBth at a very recent moment, presented some words of admonition premonitory of the Austrian Bank act crisis and the Vienna Bourse llnanclal collapse, setting forth some few of the causes which were more Immediately pressing towards Buch results. The writer saidTlie presence here of the Aus trian Minister President and the Minister of Fi nance has been taken advantage of to hold con ferences on the bank question. This question hud been left pending in 1807, when the arrangement between Austria and Hungary was made. There were then so many other lar more urgent ques tions, and this question Itself was so intricate, that it was thought more advisable to adjourn its solution, as the privilege of the National Bank, which lasts till the end ol 1875, seemed to admit of such adjournment without creating much lucon venlcnce. Hungary did not, indeed, recognize tills privilege as Minding, and as the arrangement with Austria did not mention tho bank as one of the in stitutions common to both sides ol the Kmplre she considered herself entitled, if her Interests re quired it, to establish a national bank or her own, and the status t/uo was ac cepted in good raith on both sides. For a couple of years things went on smoothly enough on both sides. The Austrian National Hank, anxious to maintain Its privilege over the whole Kmplre, did everything io make things pleasant. Confidence being restored in the stability ?r political institu tions, as regulate* by the compromise witn Austria, gave a fresh Impulse to Industrial and commercial activity In Hungary. The Impulse was vigorously promoted by a good harvest for two years, and ah export ol grain and other raw produce such as had never existed before. Financial and industrial establishments were springing up in every direc tion, all of which naturally expected to find sup port in the National Hank. Nor were they deceived. The Vienna establishment endeavored in every way to meet tho demands thus made upon Its re sources. The dotation for its branches in Hung.irv, which had been ?l,Sou,ooo, was successively more than doubled, whllo the low discount made the benefits of this increased fund easily accessible to every one. All this lasted till about the middle ol 1S69, when gradually a change arose. The impulse given to industrial and flnan clal enterprise by the settlement of political affairs, however healthy and legitimate in the beginning, had gradually degenerated luto speculation or the wildest kind. Every one was getting up companies, or, at least, trying to obtain his share in the fabulous gains which were realized by the pro moters. The shares of companies which had not yet begun their operations were driven up to twice and more of their nominal value, while the whole disposable capital in the Empire would have been scarcely sufficient to supply half or them. Foreign capital, which it had been confidently reckoned upon would flow in freely, did not corne in bo rapidly as was required to make up the deficiency of capital in the country, and the result or all tnls was a violent reaction, which, in the Autumn of 1809, culminated in a monetary crisis. To make things worse, the harvest had been very in different, not to say bad; so that the relief which mignt have been expected on this side fell away likewise. As this state or things was not comlned to Hungary, bnt extended to Austria likewise, the bank thought It necessary to raise its discount and to apply the most stringent measures to protect Its reserve of notes. A great disaster was the conse quence. Shares of every kind rell to a fourth and less of their former value. Most of the new indus trial establishments being short of working capital and relying on an easy discoun t were, if nor ruined, at least crippled for years, and. in the bitterness of deception, Instead ol examining the co-operation of the many causes which had produced this deplorable result, only looked out for a scapegoat, which was found in the National Bank. It was all the fault of this institution, which, by its anti quated, heavy mcchanisrn and tho exclusive con sideration or Its own Interests In preference to the interests of the public, bad brought about the calamity. It would be immaterial to inquire how far these changes were Justified, but the Impression has remained from that time tnat this institution Is not up to the requirements of the present time and needs thorough reorganization.
