The follow ing i the decision of tbe attorney -gen. eraJ relative to the Mod' captures : Depaetiikt OK J I STI ' X, Washington-, June 7, 1873. J To the President of the United States: tint I have the honor to acknowl edge the receipt from you of several pa pers relative to tbe Modoc Indians now in tody of the United Htates army, .with requests for my opinion as to the authority to try certain of the prisoners ! y a military tribunal. The main facts out of which the rjuestion arises are these: In 1864 the I'nited States made a treaty with these Indians, by the term- of whi' h they were to go to, and remain on, a reservation in the Btate of Oregon. Late last fall the Indians be ing away from their reserva tion, a military detachment wa sent t.i procure their return. Finding I hem unwilling to go peacefully, the officer indicated his determination to use compulsion, in consequence of which a conflict ensued between the t'nited Htates troops and the Indians. hoon after Bcveral peaceable citizens and families in the vicinity were mur dered by Indians of this band. They then entrenched themselves in thelava i U the neighborhood, where fight ing endued and one or more severe bat tles fought, and in which persons on i ith -ides were killed and wounded, and t he I'nited States troops repulsed. Pend the hostilities, negotiations were ipcnrd for peace, and on the fifteenth of April last, tieneral Canby, Rev. Mr. Thomas and M r. Meacbam, at a point between tbe opposing forces, and in pur suance nfamot ual agreement to that end, met Captain Jack, leader of the Indians, m jtb some of his chief warriors, to dis cuss the terms of the treaty, and while so engaged General Canby and Mr. Thomas were treacherously murdered, and Mr. Meacham severely wounded by ihe Indians on that occasion. Battles followed, and Captain Jack and all or most all of his tribe have been captured, :tnd are now in the hands of the milita ry authorities. Oeneial Sherman, in a communication to the secretary of war, dated the third instant, recommends that snch of these Indians as have vio lated the military law be tried by the military tribunal. This recommenda tion is approved by the secretary of nr. Instructions were prepared s;3 hv Francis Leiber, Uu.l)., revised by the board of officers, of which Gen eral E. A. Hitchcock waa president, and ater their approval by the President of the luited Htates, were published for the government of armies of the United States in the field. Section thirteen of these instructions is as follows: "Mili lary jurisdiction is of two kinds; first, that which is conferred and defined by statute; second, that which is derived from the common law of war. Military oft'ense- un ier the statute law must be tried in a mannerspecified; but military Tense? whiC k) : '-..me within the - ituie must be tried and punished un ci er the common laws ot war. Thecbar acter of the courts which exercise these jurisdictions depends ujon the local laws of each particular country. In tbe armies of the United States the first is exercised by courts-martial, while cases which do not come within the rules and articles or jurisdiction conferred by the statute on courts-martial, are tried by military commissions. AM the authori ties which I have been able to examine upon this subject harmonize with these instructions according to the laws . f war. There is nothing more sacred than a flag of truce dispatched in good faith, and there can be no greater act of perfidy and treachery than the assassin ation of Its bearer, after they have been acknowledged and received by those to whom they are sent No statute of the United Statea makes this act a crime, and therefore it is not punishable under the rules and articles of war, and if punisha ble at all must Ik? through the jsnver, derived from the usages of war, kin- J dred to the act in jueation. Bad faith I is the breaking of his parole by a pris-1 oner of war. When the United States were at war with Mexico several officers of the Mexican army were tried by mili tary commissions composed of officers of the 1 iiited states army and convict ed and sentenced to be shot, and exe cuted, for breaking the.r parole. Nu merous trials of a similar nature took place during tbe war o." the rebellion, hut there are no statutory provisions i whatever upon the subject aud the whole I power of tbe military authorities in such cases is derive; from the usages of war. on tbe twenty-third of August, i - ", a military commission, duly appointed, assembled in the city of Washington for the trial of Henry Wirtz, who plead among other things that the militarv conimission bad no jurisdiction over either his person or over the subject matter of tbe charges and specifications, being a tribunal unauthorized by either the statutes of military iaw, martial law or well-established usage: hut this plea was overru.ed. aud he was convicted upon several charges, one of which was murder in the violation of the laws and customs of war, and after sentence he was hung for his crime. All the proceedings in this case derived their authority and validity from the common law of war. Certain per sons, it will l remembered, were trieu and convicted in the same way tor the assassination of President Liucolu. At tomev-Geuerai Speed in the discussion of this subject Opinions, volume two, page tw hundred and ninety-seveu says: ''We nave seen that when war comes the laws and usages ot war come also, and that during war they are part of tbe laws of the land. I'nder the constitution, congress may define ane punish offenses against those laws, hut in default of congress defining those laws and pre scribing a punishment for their intrac tiou, aud made of proceeding to ascer tain whether an ofi'euse has been com mitted, the punishment to be in flicted hv the army must be governed bv the laws and usages of war as under stood and practiced by the civilized na tions of the wo.'ld. Aga.n, if the pris oner be a regular unoffending soldier of the oppite arty to tbe war, he should be treated with all courtesy, and kindness consistent with his safe custo dy. If he has offended against the laws of war, he should have such a trial as the laws of war require. A spy, though a prisoner of war, may be tried, con demned and executed by a military tri bunal, without a breach of the constitu tion. A bushwhacker, bandit of war, rebel, or assassin, being a public enemy, may be tried, condemned and executed as an offender against the laws of war. The law of nations, which is the result of the experience and wisdom of ages, has decided that jayhawkers, banditti, etc., are oiTenders against the laws of nature and of war, aud such are amenable to the military. Our con stitution has maMe these laws part of the laws of tbe land. See also Battel, 359; Wheaton's international law, -UW; Woolsey's international law, 'I'M; Hal leck's international law, 4:Xt; Mulligan's case, page four; and Wallace, page two, holds, under the circumstances herein stated, a military commission to lie ille gal, but the facts therein related are en tirely different from those under consid eration. Mulligan was a resident of a State not in rebellion; the courts were open and unobstructed for his prosecution; he was neither a prisoner of war nor attached in any way to the military or naval service of the I'nited States. According to instructions here tofore referred to, no civil tribunal has jurisdiction in the cases disclosed by the papers letore me. Sections -in aiu. -11 thereof are as follows: "Section 40. There exists no law or bodv of authori ty or rules of action between hostile ar mies except that branch of the laws of nature and of nations which is called tbe laws and usages of war. Section 1. All municipal law of the ground on which armies stand, or of the countries to which they belong, is silent and of uo effect between the armies in tbe field.'' Manifestly these rules are to a great Crtent, if not alto gether, correct; for it cannot tie pretended that a I'nited States soldier is guilty of murder if he kills a public enemy in bttle, which would be the case if a municipal law was in force and application to an act committed under such circumstances. All laws aud cus toms of the civilized world may not lie applicable to an armed conflict with an Indian tribe upon our western frontier, hut the circumstances attending the as sassination of Canby and Thomas are such as to make their murder as much a violation of the law of savatre as of civ ilized warfare, aud the Indians con cerned in it fully understood the base ness and treachery of their act. It is difficult to define exactly the relations cf the Indian trilies to the United States: but as they have been recognized as independent communities for treaty-making purposes, and as they frequently carry on organized and pro tracted wars, they may properiy, as it seems to me, l held subject to those rules of warfare which make a negotia tion for peace after hostilities possible, and which make pernoy line mat a question punishable by the military au thorities. Perhaps the war with the Modocs is practically ended, unless some of them should escape am renew hostilities; but it is the right of the United States, as there is no agreement for peace, to determine for themselves whether or not anything more ought to Is-done for the protection of the coun try, T the punishment oi crime grow itiir out of war. Section fifty-nine of said instructions is as follows: "A prisoner of war remains auswerable for nis crimes committed against the captors, the army or toe oeoole before be was captured and for which he has not been punished by his own authorities. My conclusion, there fore, is that a military commission may le appointed to try such of the Modoc Indianstnow in custody as are charged with offenses against the recognized laws of war, and that if, upon such trial, any are found guilty, they may be sub ject U such punishment as those laws require or justify.

The court, Free man delivering tbe opinion, decided the revenue cases in favor of the State, city aud county against the stockholders in the banks and insurance companies. The deci-iou is based upou a provision in the constitution of the State requir ing taxes to be equal and uni form. The court holds that the legislature had no power to fix a special rate of taxation upon cor poiations or stockholders therein, under the guise of an annual bonus in lieu of all other taxes or otherwise. The court fully conceded that if the legislature had the power to grant the charter pro viding for an annual tax in lieu of all other taxes, that this would exempt the stockholders; but the court says that, under the constitution of 1834, all prop erty must le taxed equal aud uniform. The case will go to the supreme court of the United States. Tbe Chicago Jubileelsts excursioned yesterday on tbe lake. The homeopathic were in convention at Cleveland, Ohio, yesterday.

The missing steamer, George Cromwell, is still the object of solicitude in the city. The agent here denies the truth of the report that the Cromwell had on board a large quantity of ammunition. He says she had none whatever among the cargo. Her fate will probably be determined by to-morrow, when the steamer Washing ton, following in the track of the Crom well, will have arrived in New Orleans. A Washington special says that state ments thus far made in tbe Polaris in vestigation show that the separation of the vessel from the ice-floe was purely accidental instead of being effected with premeditation ; that there is not the slightest reason from the testimony thus far taken to suspect any poisoning, mu tiny or heartless desertion, aud that Es quimaux Joe never told any such story as has been attributed to him in regard to the death of Captain Hall. William Stuart, a well known theatri cal mauager, while pasinr down the main stairway of the police headquar ters yesterday, when near the bottom, was seized with vertigo and fell over the bannisters.

A special from the Modoc country, of the fifth, says that General Tiavis was preparing evidence to prove the identity of the Modoc murderers, intending to hang eight or ten the next evening, when he received a dispatch from Wash ington to bold them subject to decision there, and probable courtmartial in camp. The delay causes great dissatis faction among citizens, and is calculated to cause a wrong impression among the surrounding tribes. The corner-stone of Rev.

Mississippi county is too horrible to con template. The proof is not taken there, but will be about, in substance, this: Tbe Radicals in Little Rock wanted to stuff ballots there, and sent their strikers and henchmen to do so. These were driven out, not for political purposes, but by reason of their personal offensivenese. Tom Hadly, Judge Caldwell and others conspired at Little Rock to throw out the registration as it then stood, arrest the leader- o the Democratic party in Mis sissippi county and incarcerate them without bail until after the election, and then register but three precincts out of the eleven in the county, register and repeat with negroes, while whites should be refused voting or registration ; indeed, these were intimidated from voting by United States marshals with warrants, at the polls, etc., all of which was done. Deputy Marshal Richards, a man named Chamberlin, one H. F. Best, and pres ent Judge John W. Fox, were the tools selected to carry out this programme, and well they did it. MISSISSIPPI. The Modest Men of Jackson, and the Ap pealThe Weather and Dysen teric Diarrhea. Editors Ac-heal There has been quite a cry concerning "fraud" in each of the late elections held in our sister State of Arkansas since reconstruction; and to show your readers that it is not groundless, we pre sent them to-day with the facts, so far as we cau learn, of the late election in Crittenden county, Arkansas. The matters pertaining to this election were developed by the contest of Colonel Gause agaiust Asa Hodges for congress, the latter, be it remembered, residing in Little Rock, though he claims to live in Crittenden county. In this contest it was proved that the poll-books, ballot boxes, ballots, and returns were brought to Memphis by the judges and clerks of election, aud taken to where Hodges was stopping, and most of them kept for several days. It was shown that some one of the judges of these precincts was either a relative or tool of Hodges, not a resident of the precinct where the voting was done, but. a resident of the precinct where Hodges claims to live. The registration was a most shame less thing. About twenty-three hundred names were found on the voting list and must have been registered, while the best data, poll-tax -lists of other elec tions, and citizens who know nearly every man iu the county of Crittenden, all verify the fact that there are not more than twelve hundred voters in the county. Negroes who were merely transient were registered and voted. Iu one precinct one of the registrars took the book of registration and regis tered voters, though the regis tration law requires" the registration to close aud the liooks to be turned over ten days prior to election day. The Arkansas law further requires that the Uxiks of registration shall be filed in the clerk's office of the county before the election. This was never done in Crit tenden county. They aflected to have had an election iu a precinct callei Burnt Cane, at which Hodges got one nunureu anu twenty-six votes, and Gause none; when Gause showed, first, mere was no sucn voting uistrict as Burnt Cane in the county, and second. there was not a single man living in iue wnoie county ot Crittenden except two, whose names would corre- stiond with the names of tbe poll-list of tnat precinct, uiergett a precinct voted two hundred and nineteen, according to Hodges s Memphis returns. Yet it was proven there were but twenty voters in mat precinct, ami tne other names were hctitious. Marion precinct voted over cignt hundred votes, yet it was proven that only about one-third of these lived in the county of ( 'rittenden, anu many or litem not m the pre cintt; the tatter class not being properiy uai s;errcu were lUetral votes. Hopetieid was proven to have but about htty Omm tU voters, vet Mr. i ?) C. W Bryant, uoti-tesideut of Hopetieid pre- ciuci, prouuceti a .vote mere or one hundred and nineteen. So with Kiugstoti and Jones, about iu the same proportion. Another remarkable fact is, that iiardly any of the returns were signed by the judges of election, anu wuai were so signed were signed iu the handwriting of Hodges's strikers that he sent out to hold elections in the different pre ciucts. aii tne returns ot these ore- cincts are in the handwriting of one of these strikers, who held elections out of his precinct at Hodges's instigation. G. S. Paul is his name, and the precincts that ills handwriting is in, are Burnt Cane, Blergett's and Council. When Colonel Gause went to Crit- tendeu county to take his den oitions, Hodges and his friends procured the absence of every witness uiey cuuiu luuuence, anu wnat couui not get away, including Bryant, Lewis, and the notorious BUI Haskins, abso lutely lefused to testify. Hodges and lis menus tried me little game of blun; anu attended tne wnoie thing armed Hodges himself, the most of the time. held in h hand a long dirk knife, pre tending to whittle, but evidently with the intention of intimidating Colonel Gause. while a witness named Sweptson was on the stand testitying, nodges made the notorious Bill Haidm seize the records Sweptson had in his hand using as tesuiiiony, and tane mem in a man ner calculated to frighten one not elv en to broils, swearing men shouldn't use any records of cntienaen county In his contest.

Since my last I have ascertained I was mistaken in supposing Musgrove to be the author of the "X." letter, and will heresaythat Colonel Thompson and myself are old acquaintances, etc. Nevertheless, my mistake served its purpose iu keeping all these modest men before the public. There was a big demand for the Appeal of that date. THE WKATKER. We are having heavy rains, lastiug only a short while at a time, but very heavy while they last. Then, in the in terval, the sun shines with an unbear able intensity. There is a something in tne air, caused by these alternate rainy, cooling spells, and intolerable heated terms, which brings a languor over the whole system, tabes all of the energy from a man, and gives him the appear ance of having had an attack of jaun dice. The appearance of early fruit, and vegetables, and an indiscreet con sumption of the same has caused much sickness. But few deaths have thus far been reported, and without exception every death was caused by imprudence on the part of the victims. If people would reason to themselves and follow the simplest rules of health, there would be few cries of "cholera," and the lease of life of manv would be extended. But as long as people indulge their appetites to excess when early vegetables and fruit come into market, just so long the funerals will increase and cholera med icine be found a mantle ornament in many houses. THE CROPS. I have not had much opportunity to inspect growing crops beyond what small patches are growing up in the im mediate vicinity of my farm, but there the corn is growing beautifully. Cotton has been brought to a stand and dirt thrown to it, and Is looking well. So much rain, of course, keeps the grass growing and the hoes at work. RADICALS IN COUNCIL. The Republican county executive committee had a session yesterday. The Republican club have commenced their meetings already, but it is generally un derstood the Republican slate Is made up, and as they have such a de cided majority in this county the Con servatives can only stand aloof and pray that thev may put good men in office. RETURN OF TROOPS. Company B, of the Sixteenth L uited States infantry, Captaiu Allen com manding, who left here for New Orleans during the Louisiana troubles, returned to camp in Jackson this morning. DEATH OF AN OLD CITIZEN. Harrison Gray Otis Parker, an old and much respected citizen of Jackson, died suddenly this morning. He was on the street last evening. Mr. Parker was well known all over the State, and his loss will lie felt by all who knew him, as a genial, whole-souled man. EXPRESS-ROBBER NABBED. On the night of the seventeenth tf June, ls71, the messenger of the South ern express company, on the north Iwuud train of the Mobile and Ohio railroad, was robtied of his safe and con tents, amounting to six thousand dol lars in currency, near Meridian, Missis sippi. The messenger having no local business to attend to, had allowed him self to fall into a "dose," aud when he awoke he missed his safe. On the ar rival of tne train at Meridian, the mat ter was promptly reported to the com pany's officers, but for sometime no clue could be had to the perpetrators of the robbery. At last suspicion was directed to a settlement or colony of negroes who made their homes iu the mountains about Meruiian, ana wuo were proven to live by robliery and plunder. Their huts were almost inac cessible, as they could only be reached by perpendicular ladders. The compa ny's detectives made a raid upou this "colony," and succeeded in ascertain ing the uatnes of the robbers, several of whom were shortly after arrested, in cluding the ring-leader, Wash Crosby. Crosby's capture was effected in Mobile, but while being conveyed from there to Meridian he made bis escape from the Mobile chief of police, though supposed to be securely handcuffed at the time. Before he escaped, however, he con fessed that the robbery was executed by himself and others by secreting them selves on the top of the express car, and then entering it in their bare feet while the train was in motion. He alsostated that they had attempted like robberies several times before, but were frustrated by the vigilance of the messengers, who were "wide awake" with their arms by their side. After Crosby's escape detectives were kept on his track, who followed him from point to point, first to St. Louis, where he managed to secrete himself for some time, men to Kansas, and finally they came up with him in Louisiana, where he was captured in a wouuded condition, about two months ago and taken to Meridian for trial. On Friaay last, the circuit court, now sitting at Meridian, sent Crosby aud anotner of the baud, Nelse Arnold, to the penitentiary, the former for five and the latter for four years. Some of the gang are vet to be tried, and they will no doubt be as severely dealt with as their associates. This desperate gang ot ne groes had been robbing the trains on the Mobile and Ohio road for years, and all the efforts of the railroad officers to cap ture them had leeu ineffectual. Tbe express company at last determined to put forth every effort and spare no ex pense in breaking up the daring and des perate gang of robbers, who had taken up a position in their mountain homes as impregnable as that of the Modocs in their lavabeds; and after two years of unceasing and laborious detective oper atious, involving an expense far greater than tne amount stolen, tne company have the consolation of final and com plete success. The oieratious iu this case have been guided by the superior judgment of tbe able general-suoenu-teudentof the company, Mr. J. O'Brien. Esu.. and the thanks of the community at large are due him for getting rid of this plundering oanii 01 negroes. Wire-nettiug for plastering is being rapidly introduced to take the place of laths, it takes less laoor to place on the walls, is more continuous, and will not burn. Coarse netting, with one inch mesh, and made of a strong wire, is found to answer best. For ornamen tal cornice work it is especially valu able, for it can be bent into any desired form. Secured lo iron studding iu a brick buildiug, our greatest danger on account of fire would be removed. A still further application of this plan is to make round bags of wire, resembling barrels, to coat them inside and out with cement. When it hardens they resem ble stone barrels. Filled with sand aud sunk iu rows auo niasses,"they make ex cellent building material for break waters. Another extension of the idea has been tried with success in England. It consists in making iron-framed build ings, covering them w'th the wire net ting, and spreading concrete on both sides. It is claimed that a house walls, tloors. roofs, doors, partitions and all- has been built, that is .itrong, firm, and absolutely incombustible, Various ap plications of the use of wire-netting and plaster cement, readily sugges themselves, and the matter is worthy o the attention of mechanics and tillders 'nan tttrf'l, Twir vonee.
