The Datroit Free Press sava of Rev.
Mr. Macdousali, the Indian missionary
recently lost in a snow storm in the
north: "It haa often been said that there
was not an Indian who would harm
Georie Macdougall not one, in fact,
who would not die for him. His power
over the aboriginal tribes ia instanced by
tbo fact that he was employed by the
Canadian government to treat with the
Creea, Blackfeet and other tribes. To
hia Inlluence, perhspa.more than to anv
other man's, the government ia indebted
ror tho peaceable condition of the Indian
trite?. Tho hope Las been expressed In
some quartera that he may yet be found,
but there seems no probability of such a
desirable event. Already the news of
hi8 loss haa been corroborated by a tele
gram received by Hon. Mr. Laird, the'
minister of the interior. It ia probabla
that ho has tean lost in the storm, and
it is possible that his body may never be
found. Accompanying the letter sent
to Hon. Mr. Ferrler were two notea from
Mr. Mncdousall. pivln" nn snnnnnf nf

Washington, March 18. Tho asnate

Spencer's election by the Alabama lcg
ialature. Robert Bjrber. a clerk of the
house of dcle-sralEO 61 theso cilted court

Spencer, testified that tha latter
promised to ha vo him appointed, mar-.

. t . I 1 T ' . ,
mo so-caiiea capnoi xjemocrauo legisla
ture, and ureal: tho quorum at the court
house. He staid at their boardinc
bouse nil uiohtt-ftnd ih t!ia morning
tOoli Ueni to Spencer's room at the
hotel, where, in Spencer's presauce, he
told them. that Sponcer had made up
in mind to ttlve them an omoe. tjpen
oer said )o oultln't thake a direct
promise, but there was a route agency
vacant in the wettern railway, and they
should be provided ror.
Question Was anything said about
how they should vote?
Answer There was no conversation
on that HolnL They subsequently went
tc tho courthouse anu voted ror uenerai
Spencer, but they hrd been instructed
to do this by tho conventions which
nominated them. Witness had under
stood that they bad been offered twenty
fivo hundred dollars to abandon the
courthouse legislature and go to the
capitol.
Witness was asked if Spencer gave
him any coney to tlso for tho journey
he took to iiowndea county.
To this question iiX-Benator Carpen
ter, counsel for Senator Spencer, object
ed, taking the ground that no proot can
be given before the Dommilte9 showing
that any one had been bribed; tha
bribery waa punishable by the State.
The witness waa directed ny tno chair
man t .-senator jiorton to answer tue
question, and he did so by stating that
Senator Spencer furnished one of the
party tares hundred dollara for expenses.
The reason they went there was to do-
feat a man usmed Stanwood, who was
an enemy of Spencsr'a. Moore, the col
ored man who was elected in his pnee,
win sl-io Intrusted to go into other coun
ties and induce persons to run aa inde-
pandent candidate?. The expsnaaa of
ihe canvass were to be paid by Spencer,
or the State committee, he forgot which ;
remembers that Spencer told him to ko.
A number of letters written by Spencer
and Hinds in ramuon to tne omce men
tion Were then identified by tho witness,
and an offtr made to put them in as ev
idence. J
Mr. uarpenter enjected to tne letters
arguing that no conspiracy haa aa yet
been shown between Messrs. Spencer
and Hinds
Senator Morton said the committee
had decided to allow tho letters to go in
as evidence after reading them.
Mr. Carpenter said he would make an-
olher objection thakthe letters wore itc
relevant.
The first letter from Hinds to Barber,
dated May 6, 1873, sots forth that he
would take care of hlo friends fir.-t, and
that "matters looked cheerful for all ex
pecting appointments, and I think it in
my power to put out xueaiey." The
next letter waa similar iu respect, ad
ding that ho would like to get the full
name and address of every .Republican
member of the legislature. He desired
to sc-nd them some important docu
ments, ec. Tne next letter inclosed a
temporary appointment for Barber in
the customhouse at Mobile, and telling
him the Republicans were sure to carry
the State, and that they were going to
real ze a big role, I
Mr. Carpenter again objected to the
letterp.
General Morgan svd he would show
that the temporary appointment was
given to Barber to support him until be
received a better one, and that it was
understood that ho wivs to render no ser
vices to the government whatever.
Senator Morion Baid that ror the pres
ent the letters received would lay on the
table, and If they were connected in any
way they would he aumitteo.
General Morgan fto tho witness"! Tell
us whether you alter ward esked Senator
Spencer for tho oixlca whica he prom
Ised ycu.
Mr. uarpanier to mat 1 oni cr.
Senator Morton, alter argument, said
the committee would allow the question
to be asked.
Question by Mr. Morgan After the
election of Spencei did you ask him for
marshaiabip or any other oince?
Answer Yes. Mr. Spancer wrote mo
that I should have it. I havo a letter
from him ttating that I should have the
marshalship. Witness produced the
letters.! They were received by me a
ear atter nis election, x nave triea to
irget all about this matter, and I am
here cgainet rr-y will. It is very un
pleasant for me to give this testimony.
and althoueh I was not ordered to bring
the letters here. 1 have brought them ror
the purpose ct sustaining my testimony
and character, aa I understood that an
attempt would be made to break them
down.
One of the letters from Spencer, dated
November 24th, no year, read, saying:
Heaieys time soon expires, anu you
shrll have the place, and that the office
would be worth live thousand dollars a
year." The letter fcdds that in case the
United States government had a war
with Spain, Alabama will come in for a
good snare or patronage, aa bo (Spen
cer) ia on the military committeo ol the
Berate and can tnua get many offices,
also telling Barber that he could get him
good place in tue army ir he wanted
one.
Senator Moiton said that, for the pres
ent, thia letter would also lie on the table
temporarily.
Jix-fcenator carpenter objected to the
letter going In at all.
The witneea said ho ws appointed aa
inspector of customs nt Mobile, at a sal
ary of two dollars and litty cents per
days; although ho never applied lor it
he thinks that Senator Spencer got the
appointment for him; nover went to
Mobile and never rendered any service.
but drew his pay; held the position
for three months.
The witness having mentioned a ru
mor ho had heard "lhat the Democrats
offered n member named Jones five hun
dred dollars to leave the Statehouaa
legislature and break lla quorum," waa
asked whether Spencer did" not give
Jones money to remain. In reply he
stated that in preeonce of Spencer he
once proposed that It would be well to
offer Jonea twenty-five hundred dollars,
or anything eke, to prevent hia going,
but Spsuccr did not consent to any such
proposition. It was agreed to send to
Lowndea ceunty for a certain intimate
friend of Jonea, which waa done, and
thia friend's irfluonce kept Jones quiet
Tho witne-.s waa then aiked what he
knew about anybody's offering a Mr.
Mansel an inducement to leave the cap
itol legislature so aa to break the quo
rum. The question waa objected to and
a long discnaaion ensued as to whether
it Is competent in this investigation to
inquire into the organization or non-organization
of the state-house legislature
which did not elect Spencer.
The committee closed their doors for
and finallv. hv a strict
party vote decided that it would not ba
com potent. When the decision was an
nounced, General Morgan, counsel for
the memorialists, insisted that a great
wrong ha'l-been done in ruling out this
branch of bis case, and he asked that
the whole matter be remitted to tho Ben
ate for its opinion on Ihe question involved.

between W. V. Sullivan and Sheriff
Mannlnir, feeUlling in Sullivan receiv
ing two dangerous wcund3. The facts
ef the esse are slnut aa follows, as de
tailed by soveral eye-witnesea: Man
nir g waa standinz near tho edge of the
porch, talkiug to some one, when Sulli
van came out of the drug store of As
kew & Co., in tho rear of Manning. As
he ca hi 9 near Manning he cocked his
pistolj either in his pocket or close down
by hia side. Manning heard tho cues
of the pistol and turned round facing
Sullivan, remarkiug to him, ''I under
stand you are looking In me." Sulli
van mado no reply, but draw up hia
pistol and ittomptea to lire, nut Man
ning waa too quick for him and got in
the first shot, which struck Sullivan in
the thigh near tho groin. Sullivan fired
two shots, which flew wide of the mark.
Manning's eezond shot misfed, but the
third took effect in the hip. inflicting a
Eerious wound, but hia physicians think
not at all dangerous. Sullivan retreated
off the porch, around Neblett ARssgan's
store. The testimony of tho witnesses
Is unanimous that Manning acted who!
ly on tho defensive, and that Sullivan's
attack was premeditated. Manning eur
rendered to thn officers and will have an
examination this evening.
