Address of Mayor Brown, Clearly Defining the Work of the Conference Business Commenced. 8t. Louis, May 13. The temple in which the congressional conference is to be held to day is handsomely decorated with flags and banner, and shields, bearing the uanies of all the States in the Union, are hung from the railing of the gallery. The stage is elaborately embellished with flowers and living plants in bloom, the whole present ing a very beautiful appearance. The conference was called to order at half-past twelve o'clock by Hon. Henry T. Blow, who stated that on consulta tion with gentlemen from all parts of the country it had been decided that Mayor Brown, as executive of the city of St. Louis, should preside over the conference, and that the members of the local executive committee should serve as the other officers of the conference. Mayor Brown theu took the chair and in troduced Bishop Bowman, who invoked Divine blessing on the conference. HA YOB BROWN'S ADDRESS. Mayor Brown theu delivered an ad dress, in which, after bidding the con gressmen present a most cordial and were only kept warm by swallowing ! hearty welcome on behalf of the whole -eal-fat and blood and burning fat in i PP'f OI ; iuis anu one which he vans, the last of which also served as a ! nopeu wouiu maae me memory oi tneir igual light at night. We have suffered , vl!ilt 1'Ieasaut, he said : ' It was not our most since the night of the twenty-sec- ! pun in inviting you here to-day to ond of April.

We have, designated of the present tonnage capacity of all the railways, still the necessities of the country and the rapidly increasing com merce would not be met, and the de- : mand for more and cheaper facilities , would still exist. tie showed by statis ! tics that by far Jie greatest Increase in ! population, agricultural and manu facturing products during the past deeade occurred in the west, and that the present aud future demand for increased transportation facilities is aud would be iu the Mississippi val ley. He then entered into a comparison of the cost of railroad, canal, sea, lake, and river transportation, and showed that river transportation is one hundred per cent, cheaper than canal, and nearly five hundred per cent, cheaper than railroad, and asked: Does not this tact suggest a solution of the question under I discussion. The value of grain to the producer is the price paid in Liverpool less the cost of transit. He then showed that grain can be laid down in Liver pool via the Mississippi river and New Orleans sixteen cents cheaper per bushel than via New York, and that the com pany have the advantages of railroad transit which could be fully used. The exports from the Mississippi val vey would soon turn the balance of trade iu our favor, and gold would flow from the old to the new, rather than, as now, from the new to the old world. He then stated why the advantages of cheap transit on the Mississippi river could not be fully realized by explaining the ob structions at the mouth, the inadequacy of water on the bar, etc., and cited the tact that during March and April just past nearly fifty vessels were obliged to anchor on the mouth of the river, auu wait nearly three weeks for totally inadequate government dredging-boat to cut a channel through this bar before these could reach the deep water of the river. Let this obstruction be removed and the Mississippi river will give to the oceans tonnage equal to that of the entire remainder of the world Besides, less than half the amount of money worse than wasted above the amount requisite to subsidize a single Pacific railroad would give to the Mis sissippi river a depth of water sufficient to allow a vessel constructed for the purpose to sail from Liverpool to St. Paul. If this were accomplished wheat could be transported from the Mississippi valley to Liverpool eight cents per bushel cheaper than from the Kaltic grain-raiding regions, and eighteen cents cheaper than from the Black sea. Mr. Stanard was listened to very attentively aud frequently applauded. CURRENT NEWS. A Couple of Items from Kardis, Mississippi- -Race Jiews from Lexing ton aud Nashville.

The attack was sudden and the troops were taken completely by snr i (fee. After the first fire of the Modocs, tin JHiiscroek rallied his men and i . barged. The Modocs retreated into the woodt, scattering in all directions. Sir volleys were fired upon them, but ' i- not known whether any were killed, liie troops capturing twenty-five horses Moagfang to the Modocs. Captain Haa i.rock also captured six boxes of carbine sin ridges, which had been cap tured by the Indians a short time ago. while being sent to the front. Thirty-three Modocs were in the fight, commanded by Captain Jack, wearing the uniform of General anby. When the last courier left ieneral Davis's camp the troops were : .et ween the Lavabeds and the Mod oca, who were entirely out of their lava -tronghold. Artillery will be moved to the side of the lake to prevent the Mo docs returning to the Lavabeds, and the halance of the troops will immediately ollow and exterminate them. It is the : n of Captain Hasbrock that the Modocs are aunot entirely out of .in munition. The bodies found by the expedition that went in search of Lieutenant Cranston' party were those of Lieutenant Cranston, Sergeant Hee lig, Corpora! M'oney, Bugler Moran, privates Albin and Bloom. Some were badly mutilated. Lieutenant Cranston was scaijed, as was also one of the others. Louis Webber, buried on the twenty-sixth ultimo, had been dug up ,.uJ the tendons of his leg taken out. Ail the bodies buried on that date bad lieen burned more or less. sw Francisco, May 12: Lavabeds, May 11. f a-m. Dispatches from Lieu leiiant Bayies's ramp state that at sun rise yesterday the Modocs came into . amp and fired on the picket guard. The command of Captain Hasbrouck, which bad been scouting all day. re turned to Sorass Lake for water. They weie making efforts to secure some by digging, but none could be found. Mc- ov was sent back to Lieutenant Bayles's c amp as escort to battery B, fourth artillery. G and B tnxips, first avalry, left; the distance being seven teen miles, it occupied all night. At the dawn of day Captain Jack aud his band rode within one hundred yards of the camp, when they all dismouuted, aud charged the camp, firing into the herd and guard. The first volley stampeded the herd, they then left for the camp, and w hile the men were getting under arms the Modocs gave volley after volley, killing four soldiers and one Warm hg Illg Indian. A rally was made and a charge i tided, this time McKay and HotuM of Lis men united, when they drove the Modocs into iLe timber, cap ;ur:ng twenty-one ponies, three packed mules. One Modoc was left on the field and eighteen mules packed with six bodies before they retreated. The trail was covered with gore. The In dians boat a hasty retreat toward the MtLode range of mountains. Captain Hasbrouck handled his men dexter ously. They are now furnished with live days' supplies. Water is so very scarce it deters a long stay in the fields, and General Davis has determined to keep his men moving untU the last Mo doe is killed, lie thinks the soldiers gain greater -ouratre as they now have them on even ground. The wounded are being brought into camp in wagons. From there they will be taken to head quarters. Two soldiers are reported mor tally wounded. Captain Hasbrouck thinks the Modocs have no ammu nition except what is contained in their pi,ueh, as they must have lost their entire stock of ammunition in this fight. The cavalry camp is all safe. Captain Jack has but seven animals. He had on toe attire of (ieneral Canby aud took puailion as if he was brigadier general. AU the artillery will move at once to the side of the lake, tut enough ni u will lo detained in the old stronghold to keep it safe, while the rest will give chai-e and try to exterminate the last one. There were thirty Modocs en gaged ; no squaws were seen during the Split, or by scouts on the following night. There is strong suspicion that Captain Jack is receiving aid from some unknown party. It appeared assembly as a convention, but in char acter it is more of an informal and friendly conference. We design to submit a plain, practical exhibit of the needs of the west and south for improved water lines to the ocean. We do not desire to excite discussion, nor do we ask any vote in advance on legis lative appropriations, nor do we intend to embarrass you by strict parliament ary proceedings." The mayor then re ferred to the necessity of improved wa-ter-routes to the seaboard, and notes what government has done for the sea coast in the way of protection to life and property, and claims that the same should be done for the west. To illus trate the perils of navigation on the Mississippi river, he says that in one bend ot that river, only four miles i:i extent there lie the wrecks of thirty six steamers, damming up the way, and that it is appropriately called Graveyard bend. He says not only the west and the south are interested in removing the obstructions from and deepening the TELEGRAMS. channel of ihe Mississippi river aud its ! or proceedings Pere Hyacinthe's wife has given birth to a boy.

Nixon's counsel has gone to the su preme court with his petition for a stay tributaries, but the whole country, and also foreign nations; for cheap transit for the products of the Mississippi valley has and must always have a great influ ence on the markets of" the world. He also cites the fact that in consequence of the high rates of freight to the seaboard, many farmers have actually hurned their corn because it could not be marketed without bringing them in debt in view of those and various other drawbacks to trade and business of the west, he appeals to congressmen to consider the situation and accord that which will remove the trouble. SPEECH OF HON. HENRY T. BLOW. Hon. Henry T. Blow then delivered an address on the general objects of the con ference. He begged congressmen to be lieve we are national in all our feelings and aims, and would scorn to receive at your hands a single favor that would burden unjustly auy part of the country. We, therefore, address you as represent atives of the whole country, as states men, bound by narrow lines as honest men, regarding it as your highest duty, as w ell as your supreme pleasure, to in vestigate the condition and claims of feeble and strong alike, and to mete out equal and .exact justice to all. The speaker then referred to the necessity of a return to specie payments, and urged congress to effect this at as tarly a day as practicable. Referring to the require ments of agriculture, mining and man ufactures, he said cheap transportation was the great thing needed. The coun try is threaded with railroads over which passengers and freight cau be trans ported in all directions, but a feeling has grown up in this valley, as well as in other parts of the country, that there are existing and extending combinations on the part of these corporations against the interests of the producing classes. He theu paid a glowing tribute to the railroad system of the country, as the proudest monument of progress ever reared by mortal hands, and to-day is the glory of a republic, enthroned iu the midst of its created wealth. He urged generous treatment of these great representatives of the capital, labor and enterprise, and said he who would un duly impede their progress, would soon learn that the inarch of American en terprise cannot be arrested by prejudice or ignorance, and that our plighted faith cau never be disturbed by senseless re pudiation or the schemes of narrow demagogue. As a remedy for these real or supposed combinations, he pro posed cempetttion, and to carry out this comjietitiou he asked congress' to give the countiv a national water system i-.juai to our railroad system, the result ot which would be the admiration of the world. He then referred to the products and resources of the Mississippi Ailey, and said St. Louis was destined to become the center of the iron trade of the world, and that within twenty years Texas would produce more cotton aunually than is now exported from the whole country. HON. E. o. STANARD, member elect to congress from from the first district of this city, was then introduced, aud sjioke in behalf of the merchants' exchange of St. Louis and the commercial interests of the Mississippi valley. His speech was quite lengthy, aud abounded in statis tical information, tearing upon the productiveness of the country and the great demand tor cheaper facilities for transportation. He said tbecentral plain of this continent has a greater capacity for cereal productions than any equal area on the globe. Seventy-five to eighty thousand miles of railroad are employed to move the pro ductions and for the commerce ofthe country ; yet there is a great and press ing need of increased facilities and clieajer transportation. Millions of tons of breadstuff- are waste. I iu western fields or consumed for fuel, while many in eastern cities and foreign lands suf fer for want of food. The western farmer obtains but about fifteen cents er bushel for com, while the consumer in the east lias to pay sixty-five cents for it. The farmer is not reimbursed the" actual cost of production, while the cost of liviusr strange now he got six boxes oi center- to the consumer is excessive and burden primed cartridges. He did not capture any from our forces, and it is certain he cnuld not have picked up that amount after the battle of April 17th. When the courier left, the troops were between th Laval.-i- and h? Indians, the latter being entirely out of the Lava beds, their stronghold. Lieutenant Harris's condition is the same as last reported, but there is great er hope of his recovery. Latest dispatches from San Francisco represent the Modocs twenty-five miles from the Lavabeds, and the Warm Spring Indians in hot pursuit. The Ohio Catholic Temperance union assembled at Cleveland yesterday. some. AU the proms or production, and more too, are demanded for transporta tion, and the producer is hnpoveriBhed, commerce languishes, and bankruptcy threatens tbo entire country and must ensue unless relief is afforded from the exactions of these tyrauical monopolies. A system of canals south of the freezing line would afford great relief both in continuity of transit and cheapness, and would hold railroads to uniform and lower rates of charges. The James river and Kanawha, the Atlantic and Great Western, and the Fort 8t. Phillips canal should be com pleted without delay: but notwith standing their completion would be almost equivalent lo duplication The Geographical society of New- York is to give a reception to the Polaris survivors soon.
