THE FBEEBOOTEB VASQUEZ.
A Loaf Pursuit Ends in Hit Final Cap tin Trarlrrit to n House, Riddled with Ballets, bat Still Alive. The telegraph lias already announced tbe cap tare of Vasquez, the Mexican leader of a band of robbers, who lor many months has been tbe ter ror of California by frequent "swoops'' down npon villages, which they pillaged and then hied away to toe mountains. Several thousand dollars' reward has oeen a standing bid for his capture, and although be has several times narrowly es caped armed forces sent out, he was, on the 14th Inst., taken prisoner near Los Angeles. A cor respondent of the San Francisco Chronicle, who was one of the capturers, under Deputy Sheriff lonnson, describes THE VASQUEZ HUNT. The party, numbering seven armed men, left Los Angeles secretly, sending their horses to a point In the suburbs, where, urmed with Henry rides, revolvers and shot guns, they centred irora different routes. Toe correspondent writes:? We crossed the plains, eight miles, to the Aliso Canyon in the Cujuuga range. VASQUKZ'S HEADQUARTERS recently have been at the house oi "Greek George," a Mexican of bad repute, about a half-mile irom the mouth of the canyon. Arriving at a point near Greek George's, we halted, removed our spurs and took other precautions airuiust the barking ol dogs, and reached tho spot chosen by our leaders lor a camping ground, a little way up the canyon, without giving indications to the e. Mitck" enemy ol our presence. Mitchell, Johnson, Sum Bryant and D. K. smith leit us there, and pro ceeded to a point on the mountain side command ing a view 01 the whole valley, and, crawling through the cnaparrul irom point to point, occu pied the time until ten o'clock in SURVEYING THE OPERATIONS OK VASQUEZ and his men below through an excellent Held glass. About ten o'clock a Mexican, answering to the description of Vasquez, lotlea wluto horse into a little namlet about a mile and a half irom Greek George's. About the same time' a person answerlug the same description, woo subsequently proved to lie Vasquez, led his horse to water iroin where It was slaked, near Greek George's, and tneu re linked it and re-entered the house. In the mean time three mounted men had rlddeu off in the direction ol Los Angeies. It is unnecessary to larilicr detail these movements observed by Mitchell lurther than to say that they led Johuson and himself to decide that it was necessary to * DIVIDE OUR NUMBER and attack both the house uuu the party rasefti Wing Vasquez who had ridden off. in the meantime those oi us who had been lett In the cauyon were restraining our Impatience as we best could. About nine o'clock two young Mexicans rode Into the cauyon with a wagou, and were halted, the traces I of the leaders ol tue team unhitched, and they were directed to remain Htationury until lurtncr orders, the object being simply to prevent their reporting tue presence oi an armed party in the canyon. The party ol observation returned from | their position on the hill, and the following plan i wus adoptedMitchell, with D. K. Smith, was to pursue the trail ol the man resembling Vasquez, I who had ridden away on a while horse, and the rest oi our party, uuder Johnson, were to attack tne house ol Greek George. The house is In (he lorm oi the letter L. The stem of the L is built of adobe ana tne L proper oi boards. The house Is surrounded by a dense thicket oi mustard, averag ing generally six leet in height ana affording an intricate retreat. Near tho house was a thicket of willows, in which several horses were coucealed. The mountain side ih about a quarter of a mile dis tant, and is rather destitute oi chaparral. It wus evidently impossible tor our party to get near the house ou horseback without belug seen. It was believed that, even If Vasquez himself was not at the house, several of his men were there, and that we , SHOULD HAVE A DESPERATE FIOHT against the odds ot men equally well armed and lying concealea In the mustard thicket. Johnson Immediately determined to utilize the unoffending Mexicans whom we ligd stopped in the cauyon. They were compelled to turn tuelr team around and move to the rear of the mouth ol the cauyon. There we leit our horses, atul Johnson, Harris, Haitley, Sam Bryant. Kodgers and mvseli packed ourselves in the wagon box, aud the Mexicans were directed to drive the wagon directly to Greek George's. The.v were Informed that the slightest disposition shown by them to give a signal or do anything contrary to orcers would RESULT IN INSTANT DEATH. It la unnecessary to say that tney were docile. It was about the most unpleasant ride 1 ever took. The sides ol the wagon box not being very high, it wus Kith great difficulty we could jam ourselves down so as to be concealed irom view. Arriving at a point about 100 yards irom the h6use and olose to Vasquez's white horse?so near it that it was evident to our leaders and all oi us that we could get to the horse-beloie any one Irotu tbe house eonld?we suddenly threw ourselves iroiu tbe wagou lox and started lor the house. The parly, without lormal orders, spread out right una leit. like skirmishers, and. with heads bowed IOW, PLUNGED INTO THE MUSTARD THICKET and moved rapidly and as silent iv as possible to ward the nouse. Mam Bryant was about the cen tre 01 the line, and 1 hastened to Ills side, pnshlug through tho weeds toward the house. Reaching the house, Bryant asked me to remain at the northwest angle and gourd the two north wlu dows and the west side 01 the house. 1 cannot just now give every mun's position, as at that particular juncture I was regarding tnose two windows and tne west side of the house with very ? articular interest. A lew moments elapsed and beard the sound of a door burst in; a second later A RIFLE OB PISTOL SHOT, and my Interest in the airair became intense. I knew 1 could near any approach to the two win dows, and suddenly divining, lrom what I under stood or the position oi our party, that .any at tempt to escape in the direction oi the white horse Would probably be undertaken by the west side or the house, 1 took a step to the right, and the mo ment 1 did so discovered a bareheaded Mexican in tha act of bounding toward mc. I FIRED UPON HIM. I saw him throw up his hands, and those of onr party to the right and from behind rushed upon bim, and two or three other shots were tired. I con lined my immediate attention to preparing Tor mother shut, expecting a general fight, and thinking proper to maintain the position I held and still watch the windows. A lew nioracuts later it seemea probable thai we had no more ene mies to coDtend with, and 1 moved around to the east side, and Vasquez and Leurado, sometimes called Coi ova, were mere, VASQUEZ BLEEDING, SMILING AND EXPOSTULATING In a gentlemanly and excited manner. 1 handed my rule to Harris, und taking a sheepskin irom the lop oi a box. placed It in the shade in the inner angle ot the house and led Vasquez to it. and, th..uking mc und smiling, he lay down. 1 begun examining his wounds and helping a Mexican woman to staunch the How oi blood. Johnson, and, in lact, every one or the party, did ail iu tneir power to make the man comiortable; but tor some little tune the expectation oi an attack lrom the balance oi his party was so great that particular attention could not be paid turn. HOW VASQUEZ WAS TAKEN. Harris, It seems, burst In the kiteheu door, which had been shut by Greek George's wlie. Vasquez was eating his dinner, wholly unarmed, and there wa? no way lor nun to roach his arms without leaving the room by the very door Harris was en tering. He sprang like a panther through an open wiudow, only aoout eighteen inches square, and alighted on his leet, intending to flee towards the willow thicket; Inn discovering his enemies springing towards him lrom that direction, he hur ried up tue west side, as bciore stated, tu get his Dorse. WONDERFUL COOLNESS OF THE WOUNDED ROBBER. Vasquez Is a remarkable man. While looking for his wounds I placed my hand over his hcayt, and lonnd Its pulsations gave no Indication of ex citement. His eye was bright, and mere was a pleasant smile on nis lace and no tremor In Ids voice. Ho was polite and thankiul lor cverv attention. Supposing that lie was fatally hurt 1 at llrBt routined iny attention entirely to assist ing the women to bathe and bandage Ids wounus, and thereiora took little note of his expressions. 1 will give a lew, however, that will sufllce as examples, without trying to give hts broken English. Although he thought and said that he was about to die?"Gone up," as ho ex pressed it?his expression oi countenance was one oi admiration ol our .determined attack and our good luck. "You are wood mcu? good men." homo one said, "Wo are sorry to have had to wound you so, but It could not he help d." "It is not your latilt," lie replied; "1 do not blame you. It was my own lanlt and there Is no one to blame. I ehoubi not have atiompted to escape." W'tmu : first brought around the house, after tne shooting, 1 beiore I leu my guard oi the windows, 1 am in- | lormcd that ho claimed to be waiting for linen to | bi^d up his wounds. HIS WEAFONS. I found a dagger sticking in the floor on the left side of his bed, near tho head: and about two leet ' (rom the loot, standing muzzle downward, a most I beautiful rifle of tho latest and best pattern; also ' a neat memorandum book, containing In one of the pockets a likeness oi a Utile irirl and a lock of silken hair. Everything about his arms and per son was in neat and periecr order. His hair is jet black, without a sprinkling of grav, and there are noue ol the wrinkles on his face one might expect to dud aucr tho die he has led. THE BAN Kir's WOUNDS. Vasquez was wounded in the head, also In tho golf of the leg, in each arm and In the thumb. Dr. Lytord lulorinca mo that the body wound and tnose in the arms and leg were buckshot wounds; those on the head and thumb might have been ;ausod by Henry rule cat triages. While his wounds were being probed and ? dressed he maintained the same caini demeanor je had displayed at llrst. lie is being carefully juarded. ANOTHER RAID INTENDED. Vasquez stateu to me that within fonr hours lrom the time of his capture he should have started on another raid, one of the objective points, It is supposed, was a tight with Harry Morse's party. i would like to give all the details, so that your readers could understand the wtioie situation; but we have TtlE REST OF THE GANG to capture, and, having idcauikd myself with the purauen, I bar* not unt anything that might prejudice the next movement, which may occur at any moment. For Home little time alter Vaaqnez was shot he thought tumseir fataliy wounded, and while we were siancning his wounds he Inlormed me that he had all alouir oeeu possessed or MEAN'S OK ACCURATE INFORMATION in regard to the efforts being made to effect his capture. It Is not intended now by those who propose to stay with the enterprise until the last member oi the gang is captured that information shall be obtained so readily hereafter. RUSSIAN EXPLORATION EAST. Grand Duke Nicholas' Expedition for Ike Exploration of the Oxui. [St. Petersburg (May 3) correspondence of London News.] The despatch of the Russian expedition, nnder the orders or the Grand Duke Nicholas Constant! novitch, to explore the waters of the Lower Oxus and their surrounding localities excites much interest here. The latter have been hitherto shrouded in a good deal ot mystery. Opinions in high places have, it is believed, varied as to the organization ot the expedition; but for the rest of the world such differences cau scarcely have much significance. The observations to bo made by the different sections into which the ex pedition is divided In the various branches of scientific inquiry will go tar to settle Important geographical questions. Still more, these labors may tend to a solution of the diffi culties attaching to the navigation ol that great line oi water communication wnose sources were first visited by the Englishman Wood. It is not for England, who has sacrificed so many 01 her sons In the path of geographical enterprise, to regard with jealousy a Russian expedition of this nature. England, engaged In tne task of civilizing 'Zuo.uw.ooo o! her Indian Empire, can display no carping spirit should Kussiau researches on the (ixus result in opening up communication with the heart of ABia, and in establishing a route by which commerce and the arts may cope with the barbarism and Ignorance of those distunt popula tions. TUB OBJECTS OF THE EXPEDITION may be described in this wise. A close examina tion Is to be made of the lower waters of the Syr Darya and Amu Darya, surveys of their branches and the adjacent localities are to be entered on aud lines of levels lrom the one river to the other are to oe taken. The delta ot the Amu will be ex amined lu tne greatest detail aud stations for meteorological observations will be established along its course. The geology of the adjacent dis tricts, together with their tlora and fauna, will be, thoroughly explored, while in the ethnographic and statistical sections observations will be made on the population and its economic conditions, nnd the local archicology will not be lor gotten. The navigation of the river will be ex amined to as great an extent as the political exigencies of the moment will allow,, while subsidiary parties will Investi gate the country between the Caspian and the AraJ, with a view to a solution ol the question whether these seas did not originally form a single one. The well known dry bed of the ancient oxus Is to be thoroughly examined, as well as what may be called its continuation frurn the head oi the ex isting delta in a northeasterly direction, toward the Ayr Darya. These investigations, it is hoped, muy tnrow light on the theory, recently promul gated, that in limes wnen the Caspian and Aral lornied a single sea the Syr Darya (worn the point where nowadays it spreads out in uuheaitby marshes) tooK a southwesterly direction, passing by Khiva into the Caspian, near Krasnovodsk. That a lull measure or success may attend the labors of the different sections under the able superintendence of colonel Stoietoff, or the staff, must be the wish ol all Interested in geographical enterprise and the advancement of humanity. WHAT 13 THE CAUSE, CLEMENCY OS COM. MEBOIAL CALCULATION? A London journal, of tbe 7th or May, speaking of the present condition of Poland and of the commercial interests or rivalries of Russia and Germany, says:?"A remarkable Instance of a country in spite of recent political convulsions becoming rich and prosperous, beyond the mo3t sanguine expectations, 1b afforded In the case of Poland. The most trustworthy evidence of this Is given by the report of Consul General Mansfield, which has lust been made public. Polish fabrics or every kind are gradually driving out of the market, both for the kingdom Itself and the Em pire 01 Russia In general, a vast number oi arti cles of interior quality Hitherto imported from Germany, and trie industrial production lor ex portation into Russia is assuming very large pro portions. In many cases the contractors can hardly meet the demands. Labor has risen in price in the same ratio, and active and intelli gent hands find ready employment at a remunera tion quite out of proportion with the price of living. The population is undergoing a steady increase, no emigration taxes place for America or elsewhere, anu the number of Israelites who run away to escape military service is more than counterbalanced by the return of exiles trom Rus sia, .Siberia and abroad, under tbe provisions of various imperial amnesties. The convention with Austria respecting the salt mines in Galllcla lias terminated and toe report points out that there will be a large opening lor the Liverpool dealers in salt, which is well worthy the attention or those firms. They should be early In the field and ac quire the business Immediately before It can get into German hands. THE SUEZ CANAL [From the Pall Mall Gazette, May 7.] The latest news from Alexandria gives fuller particulars as to the mode In which tne Suez Canal difficulty was put an end to. M. De Lesseps' threat to shut up "ma rnaison.as he Is said to have de scribed the canal, was promptly responded to by the Khedive. Two steam frigates were Immedi ately statlonyd at Suez, and two others were des patched from Alexandria, accompanied by a tug and transport laden with beacons, buoys, light an paratus and diving bells, to insure the navigation oi the canal and lakes in case of obstruction or re moval ol the usual lights. General btone was directed to superintend the land operations, and McKiUop Bey was placed in charge or the naval arrangement. Troops were sent to Suez and Port Bafil and Colonel Ward was sent to Ismalia. to which a body ot regular cavalry was commanded to proceed irom their encampment in the W'ady. It Is now siiBges:ed that possibly M. de Lesseps wished to en Joy a good practical joke, but it has cost the fcg.yp tians a good round sum and will uot be appre ciated at Cairo. The terms upon which the diffi culty has been settled are very variously given. "In Alexandria, it Is said. M. de Lesseps has yielded everything, while in Port Safd It is be lieved that he has carried everything belore him." If the latter account ot the matter be the true one, there has been, It is pointed out, "no settlement ot the matters In d spate between M. de Lesseps and the commerce or the world, and sertons difficulties yet remain to bo adjusted be fore rela-tous between these opposing Interests can be looked on as satlsiactortly ana perma nently settled."
