The second day 'a session of the council union of the American Hebrew congregations in Milwaukee was aim wholly devoted to discussion of education, much attention be ing given t "'" "ut j-ct of Sunday school. The corporation organized in Cincinnati to operate the Southern railway company, voted unanimously yesterday to authorize ti.e in crease of tl.eir capital f to. k to two million five hundred thousand dollars, for the pur pose of bidding for the contract to complete and operate the unfiniol id portion of the line from Somerset, Kentucky, to Chattanooga, Tennessee.

A corkep indent asks us if our esteemed cotemporary, the Aralanche, did not make a mistake in tt-. . dition of Sunday, when it said in the heading over the foreijju tele graph that 'I'.itoum, controlling the Balkans, is conceded to Russia." It certainly did.

LoxiK)N, duly 10. A Beilin correspond ent says: ' The d-.te for the publication of the Antrlo-Turhish treaty is suggested to have oeen selected with a view to avoid ulterior complication. If the Berlin peace is signed by Russia with the knowledge of the exist ence of the Anglo-Turkish treaty, the 1 itter treaty cannot hereafter i, alleged by Russia as a reason for impugning the validity of the Berlin instrument, whereas, should Russia now decline to adhere to the Berlin treaty unless modified to suit the position which su pervened since the publication of the Anglo Turkish treaty, fhe must prepare for the troubles she wished to avoid when goinr to Berlin. It is understood that the Freoch government is going to ask, or already has asked Russia whether she does not prefer abandoning the idea of Astatic annexation rather than see the Cyprus treaty carried into effect. Should this question be negatived, France, it is thought, may adopt a more active policy." Bl LGARIAN H0RKOUS. London, July 10. A Constatiuople dia- Eatch says that Fawcett has returned from rtgoz, and reports intense suffering among the population south of the Rbodope moun tain. He enumerates the horrors perpetrat ed by the Bulgarians and Cossacks, and sometimes by the regular Russian soldier, whose design seems to be the extermination or dispersion of the Musselmans and the christians favorable to them. In the Doma den district! fifty-three villages have.beeu plundered and burned by the Russian and Bulgaria troops. Within the last two months twenty-three villuges have been equally laid w.i-te and l.urned in the districtof Hoskieves, and in the I'bilipopolis district twelveivillages have been burned. In numerous villages there lia- been wanton destruction, attended by deeds of unheard of barbarity. Cases of men and women, deliberately burned alive, have been frequent. The violation of ths young has also been very frequent. Nothing more horrible tnan the particulars of this re port can beimagined. Its veracity rests upon the official authority ot one of the most respect ed of her majesty's servants, and of men em ployed by him, upon his conviction of their perfect trustworthiness. Fawcett intends to lay hia report before the English, Austrian and French ambassadors, with a view to sending out a commission of inquiry to report and endeavor to put an end to these excesses, which disgrace humanity. beaconskield'h coup the a'isorbini; THEME. London, July 10. Lord Beaconstield's coup has thrown into the shade all other top ica. The Times' s Berlin correspondent says that when the Anglo-Turkish convention was first annennced there, Knglish diplomacy en joyed a prestige such as it had not enjoyed tot a long time; but later some dissenting voices were heard. The coup, said some, is undoubtedly clever, but it is q-ieslioued whether, in the long run, it will redound to the honor and interest ot England. Others atill speak of the event with unqualified ad miration. The Vienna fVcaw Bays: "We cannot but hail with sincere satisfaction this victory won without bloodshed, by English policy, over the eastern question: tor the ex istence of Turkey, so frail when she herself is her sole support, will, under the energetic protection of England, be able to be main tained for long years." A majority of the Vienna papers speak in the same friendly tone. The Times' s Paris correspondence represents public opinion there as about equally divided, while the press comments are very conflicting, borne critics say KKANCE OftiHT TO BE SATISFIED as it is now shown, Kngland has no de signs on Egypt, while ethers declare that Fngland virtually has possession of Egypt in securing Cyprus. Tlie Manchester Guardi an's London correspondent says: The offi cial liberals will not directly challenge the policy of the government, but will criticise, and may even propose a resolution; but, in any cae, the effect will be t) throw the re sponsibility entirely oc the government; to find fault with them for the surprise, and to bring into prominence the limitless obliga tions into which the country is likely to be involved. The most peculiar feature of the situation, is the doubtful view held of this stroke of policy by the conservative party. They regard it as a necessary result of the late campaign, but many of them look upon it as A NECESSARY EVIL. As a party they feel the heavy responsibil ty cast upon them. The same correspondent says : The sys tem upon which A-... Minor is to be a.iminu teted will be generally based on the Indian practice ot residents or agents. These repre -sentatives of the Eoglish government will be placed in most oi the pashalics for the pur pose of watching and reporting on the local administration, but will have no administra tive powers. The ambassador at Constanti nople will act upon the information they may supply, and the machinery to enforce what may be deemed requisite for THE !OOD GOVERNMENT OK THE COUNTRY will be manipulated by the Porte. In order that the demands of the Euglish ambassador may receive needful material support, there will be a large garrison permanently lixed in Cy'pru?. But for the objections of France British occupation would have been, not in Cypru3, but in one or more towns on the main land. I have reasons for saying that the Anirio-Turkish convention was considerably modified out of deference to the views of the French government, and tha over and above the convention there is an arrangement by which the interests of France iu Syria are guarded f rom interference. INn.t'ENCE OK THE TREATY UPON THE PEACE CONGRESS. Berlin, July 10. It is uncertain whether the subject of tho Anglo-Turkish convention will be brought before the congress, but its discussion by the latter is not considered im probable. Should this be the case, it is be lieved that the question will not raise any material difficulties in the congress; it is thought, in fact, that a discussion of the treaty will be of great advantage in pro moting an understanding among the powers. Havana, July 10. King Alfonso has cre ated General Martinez Campos a Knight of the Golden Fleece, and elevated General Jo- cllar to the rank of captain-general of the army. Three commissioners, representing the to bacco raisers, manufacturers and merchants, D ftp :ively, will le elected and report with in u fortnight whether it b expedient that the export duties on leaf tobacco should le rai-ed, and those on manufactured tobacco reduced, and to indicate what proportion of duties both classes ought to pay, with a view of harmonizing the interests of producers, manufacturers and dealers. boundaries ok the new piiovince. Correspondence of the London Telegraph: Although the Bulgarian question has not yet been definitely settled, the broad lines are now laid down. Sophia, as already reported, will belong to Bulgaria. This arrangement is favorable to Turkey, not only because the spur of the Balkans south of Sophia can be more easily defended than the spur north ward of that city, but also because the former line will form a better defense against possi ble future assaults from the Servian side. Turkey will, moreover, be amply compensated by -ncessions made at both extremities of Riitnelia. Thus tne n-'w province of the so called East Rome, a will uot extend eatward quite so far as the Black sea. Bulgaria is to itend naturally to Emine Burun, the eastern artremity of the Balkan range, but the littoral .uth of that point H not to be Rumelian, but to revert to Turkey. East Ruu.elia is to take, roughly speaking, bi' with considerable mod ifications, the line adopted ut the Constanti nople conference, only, however, a far as a line drawn fit ui north to south between the Warda and Struma valleys. This city will thus la? restored to Turkey proper, which will also recover an lnimens;- brad of Macedonia. The territory thus restored to Turkey is esti mat d at four thousand square miles. The country between the Datmbe and the .Egean sea will consequently be divided into three horizontal provinc-: B ilgana, the new so called Eit R ;melia, and the Rumeiia of the Turks or Sandjak of Constuti'inopl-. East Rumeiia, the n-w name temporarily chosen tor the South Balkan province, is stngulariy inapproprint- a--, it will not ( xtend so far eal as the province now called BoaW l.a by the Turks. It was natural that the other powers should object to the term used by the Rus sians, "South Bulgaria," for England and Austria desired to prevent even the idea of a Bulgaria being formed ut any time south of the Balkans; but something better ought to be f.und than East Rume iia. Count Sclicuvalotf tried hard to induce the European pov.- ra to accede to hi propo sition that the Russians be allowed to remain two years in Bulgaria, urging that massacre would infallibly follow their withdrawal; but the hard fight he kept up, with splendid self-control, was of no avail. England con sidered six months sufficient, and all the count could obtain was that nine months be conceded for the I vacuation ot Bulgaria, with an additional three months for the passage of troops through Roumania. Should there Le apprehensions of di.-turbances, it was unanimously agreed that the population should be protected by international troops. It was understood that the remainder of European Turkey should be freed from Rus sian troops within a'x mon'hv-. Rumeiia is to be defended on its frontiers by Turkish troops, but the interior is to be protected by a so-called militia or gendarmerie enlisted from the population, according to the plan of the Constantinople conference.

TOMLINSON, chief clerk of the collector of customs, testi fied n.i to th persons employed in the cus tomhouse. It being shown there were soma omissions from the list of employes mad;; out by him aud submitted yesterday by Collector Smith, ut the suggestion of Mr. Cox Colo nel Tomlinaoc w s requested to perfect the Diper so that it would saow ail the employes since Collector King's appointment, with the dates of their dismissal, reappointment, etc. Wat, WILLIAMS, COLOUED, was examined relative to the affidavit made by him, and submitted to the committee in Washington, as to the conversation between i)ix. Fisk and Hobbs, that Weber did not sign the Anderson-Weber agreement, and that Anderson did not swear to it. Wit ness waited on him at the St. James hotel, who told witness he was iu a hurry; that parties had been after him to sign a paper which he did not intend to sign, but was go ing away; after this party had left the table, Dix told witness the man's name was D. A. Weber; this was on Saturday, November lGih, the day before Weber was killed. In the cross-examination by Mr. Black barn witness did not seem very positive about dates, and did not remember that Weber was killed in March. Witness said he did net authorize anybody to put in his affidavit the statement that Weber said he was going home, and that part in which Sey mour's name is mentioned waa uot read to him. Witness finally admitted that he had been confused by Mr. Blackburn in explana tion of contradictory statements as to whether he had been told that Weber was present or not at the time the Anderson Weber agreement was sigued. it. T. HOEliS testified that ha waa pre.eiit some weeks ago in Dix's office when the conversation occurred in regard to Williams's affidavit; Wilder told me that Weber did not siyn th Weber-Anderson agreement; Dix came after me before breakfast on the morning of the conversa tion as to William?; I knew he wanted Wil liams to swear to the converstion; Dix was afraid I would go back on him, and wanted me to make an affidavit of what Wilder had said; Wilder told me that he and Anderson went to Seymour's otfico together, when An derson signed the paper; that no one else was present. J. F. KELLY, supervi-or of registration in Richland par ish, testified that Jie made up the returns and brought them ti the city soon after the election, and delivered them without protest; inclosed with them were two afhdavit3 of intimidation and violence; one of these par ties he would not believe on oath; did not make oath to the paper published as my affi davit in Shenuau's report; believe some of the statements made therein are true and some are not true, though the reports, as stated, were made to me by the parties named. Witness detailed at great length occurrences between th-; time he came to the city with the returns and the time of his final protest, showing that efforts were made by prominent Republicans to induce him tc make the protest; witness gave the names of persons in the parish who wouid swear to violence and intimidation, and went up acd brought some of them to the city; witness did not feel justified in making the protest, aud would not have made it but for the per sistent efforts of Governor Kellogg, Campb-11 and others importuning him to do so. The committee adjourned until to-morrow morning. The Washington Committee Not in Hrssion. Washington, July 10. Messrs. Potter, Hunton, Springer and His:ock, of the Lou isiana und Florida investigating committee, met to-day, but General Butler being absent they postponed taking testimony till this afternoon.

Detroit, July 10. The Democratic State conveutu n met at the operahotise, ut Lansing, at noon to day. The convention was called to order by D. M. Dickinson, chairman of the Democratic State central committee. D. F. Pratt was chosen temporary chairman. After the transaction of the customary routine work the convention took a reeeau until half past two. On reassembling the convention effected a permanent organization, and re elected D. F. Pratt permanent chairman. The following resolutions were adopted : The Democratic party of the State of Mlchigau, in convention assembled, renewing its fidelity to its time-honored principles, standing for a sacred pres ervation of the national credit and the nation's faith, for the constitution and the laws, and for the great truth that this Is a government of the people where the will of the people should rule, does here by declare: First That we arraign the Republican party for its corruption in office, its unwise legislation, and lis wicked perversion of the people's will as expressed at the polls. It has squandered the public funds and lauds, aud corrupted the body politic; it has placed men in office, dishonest and Incapable, who have used their positions as private perquisites; it has ligislated for the rica, oppitssed the poor, and created gigantic monopolies; it has burdened each town and city with dent and taxation, and driven them to the verge of bank ruptcy: It has driven our commerce Irom the sea, and destroyed our once powertui navy; i t completed its career of crime and dishonor by stealing the 1 'residency from the people, and placing a fraud In ths Presidential chair. Second We indorse the investigation of the elec toral frauds, to the end that the truth of history may be vindicated, aud a repeUtlon of such crimes pre vented. Third We declare that gold aud sliver coin is the money of the constitution, and all paper currency should be convertible into such coin at the will of the holder. We are opposed to the further forcible reduction of the velume of the currency, and we affirm the action of congress prohib iting such reduction. We declare that the prostrate condition of the business interests of the country imperatively demauds that taxation, both State and national, shall be leduced to the lowest point consistent with the attainment of the object for which such taxes shall be levied, and that economy shall be practiced In every de partment of the government. We congratulate the country upou a reduction of over fifty million dol lars In the national expenditures during the last four years, and hlch result was secured by the Democratic house of representatives. The following State officers were nomi nated: For governor, Orlando M. Barnes; for lieutenant-governor, A. P. Swineford, o! Mar quette; tor treasurer, Alex McFarlin, of Genese; for secretary of state, George H. Murdock, of Berrien; for auditor-general, W. J. B. Schermerhorn, of Leramee; for commissioner of State land office, George H. Lord, of Bay; attorney general, A. B. Morse, of Ionia; superintend ent of public instruction, F. Trueadale; mem ber of the board of education, E. F. Uhl, Grand Rapids; chairman State central com mittee, William B. Meenan, ot Detroit. The convention adjourned at six o'clock. The Stissoarl st ate Convention. St. Louis, July 10. The Democratic State convention met at Jefferson City at eleven o'clock this morning. General John A. Ilocka.iay was elected temporary chairman, who, in a brief addrcs?, indorsed the policy of paying the uational bonds in greenbacks and giving the country less bonds and more greenbacks. The usual committees were ap pointed, and the convention took a recess uatil two o'clock. The conventien reassembled at two o'clock this aft-'moon, but ncne of the committees being ready to report, several delegati scalied on, made brief speeches, among them Ex Governor Woodson, who, among '- other things, said that the man whom the Demo crats had elected to the Presidency, when the crisis came proved himself unequal to the con test, and if he had had the courage of Wade Hampton, of South Carolina, and had stated to the people of the United States, "You have elected me to the first office in your gift, and by the eternal God I will be Presi dent," he now would be President. James O. Broadhead, of St. Louis, was elected permanent president, with a vice president from each congressional district, and A. A. Lesseur, secretary, with five as sistants. A committe.- on resolutions was than ap pointed, and after an absence of some time, during which several more speeches were made, principally on the financial question, Ex-Governor Woodson report ;d the iollowing platform. The Democratic party of the State of Missouri, In convention assembled, declares Its confidence in and uiishaken adherence to the great principles of the DemoRoatic national government, its devotion to the national Union and constitution, with the amendments thereto, and its unswerving mainte nance of the following principles, namely: A strict suboidination of military to civil power. Opposition to large standing armies in time ol peace. Purity of elections uuS their absolu'e freedom from all interference by offloeis of the Federal gov ernment, civil ar military Profound respect for popular will fairly and le gally expressed at the ballot-box. Afllxed purpose to expose acd pun lsh all political fraud and coiruptlon. The political equality of all citizens. The largest right of individual liberty consistent with the interests of others. Universal education, general and active. Participation by body of the people in public af fairs. We congratulate the country on the fact that, after nearly thirteen years from the cessation of hostili ties, a state of peice, in accordance with the consti tution and laws, has been reached in our southern States. Second Ve solemnly arraign and condemn the high electoral commission as talthless to the people of the United Suites, In refusing to Investigate and expose the wicked and glaring frauds by which the will of the people at the last rresiuenuai election was defeated Its refusal to do so was In violation ot the law under which it was organized, and while the decision made by the Forty-touith congress, as to who should be declared the President of the United States for the present Presi dential term, was. in our judgment, final, but that decision ought not to preclude a full investigation and exposure of all the frauds con nected with that election, and the due accountabil ity of all who were guiltily concerned in them; and we heartily commend the action ot the majority ol the house of representatives in pursuing such inves tigation. Third We regard the national banking system us being oppressive and burdensome, and demand its abolition and the retirement from circulation of all bank-notes and the Issue of legal tender notes in lieu thereof , and in quantities, from time to time, sufficient to supply the wholesome and necessary business demands of the entire country, and that all greenbacks so issued shall be used in me purcnase anu retirement oi bonds of the United States, so that the Interest bearing debt of the country may be lessened In pro portion to the extent of greenbacks thus put in cir culation. The legal-tender notes, commonly known as greenbacks, should be made a legal-tender In the pavnierii ui tui ueuis, puuiic aim private, cxuepi sueu obligations as are in the terms of the original con tract expressly inaue pajauie iu com. Fourth That the right to coin money and to reg ulate the value thereof can be exercised under the constitution by congress alone, and that the pos session ot ine power imposes tne uuty oi its exercise to the extent of all gold ana stiver oullion offered for coinage at the mints of the United States; and we regard the limitations and restrictions imiosed h congress upon the coinage of sliver as impolitic and unjust, and should at once be removed. Fifth That a return to specie payment is impos sible in the present financial condition of the coun try, and we demand the Immediate and uncondi tional repeal of the act of congress of January 1, 1875. known as the resumption act, holding the same to be unwise and ruinous to the best Interests of the people. Sixth The policy inaugurated and maintained by the Hepubltcan party of contracting the active cir culating medium of the country constituting, as all admit that it does, the standard of value of the property and product of the country, aud requesting as well that te prices paid for all labor stands pre eminent in the long list of its oppressive measures as the most strpld, lnexcusat le and oppressive of them all, being opposed to all monopolies and all laws discriminating in favor of one class of our people at the expense of and preju dice of all others. We declare our unqualified hos tility to all protective tariffs, and demand that there shall be a tariff for revenue only Seventh The Democracy tenders to the debtor and laboring classes of the country its warmest sym pathy, and pledges itself at the earliest moment to revise the cruel and destructive policy of the Repub lican party whi. h has brought ruin upon them. e demand that all legislation shall be so enacted and administered as to secure to each man, as nearly as practicable, the just rewards of his own labor. Klghth That, in view of the large appropriations that nave been made by the Federal government for works of public improvement on the seaboard and lnkes, justice to the people of the Mississippi valley demand that appropriations shall be made for the improvement of the Mississippi river and its tribu taries, commensurate with the wants and Interests of this section of the country; and belreving In the constitutional power of the government to aid in the construction of na tional enterprises which serve to benefit large sections of the country, and which cannot be ac complished by individual enterprise or State action. We tavor such legislation In this behalf as will not Increase the national indebtedness, or Impose any auumouai ourueus upon tue people. Such a policy, In our opinion, while it would cheapen the cost of transportation and add to our agricultural wealth, would afford remunerative employment to the sur plus labor of the country. Nlnth-That there can be no legitimate employ ment of organized force In this country, except to execute the law and maintain the public peace; that reform mnst be made In national.

Tenth In the language of the Indian i Democra cy, we declare that the jurisdiction clslmed and ex ercised by the circuit courts of the United States over questions of corporate and Individual rights arising under the laws of States tends to op press and burden the litigants to such an extent as to amount to a practical denial of justice in many cases, and tie consider the leglsla.lon which has conferred such jurisdiction as unwise and hurtful to the true interests of the people. We demand urh legislation as wl 1 restrict and limit the jurisdiction of such courts to such in .tiers as are clearly con templated by the constitution and expressed in th9 juuiciaryaci of 17i9. Eleventh We favor and invite immigration to our State from all sections of the country. Mr. M'Gann, of St. Louis, moved to amend the report by adding a resolution in favor of a change- in the character of our bonded in debtedness, by a law whereby the present outstanding bonds of the State may be callrd in, and the.ie be substituted therefor regis tered bond beating a reasonable rate of in terest and of small denominations, namely, in sums of ten, twenty, fifty aud one hun dred dollars each. The qut;ton was taken on the amendment and it was ibst yeas, 114; nay?, 135. The platform was then adopted unani mously. The following ticket was then nominated, and the convention adjourned: JuJko of the supreme court, Elijah Norton; register of lands, J. E. M'Henry; State superintendent of public schools, P. D. Shannon; tailroad commissioner, A. M. Sevier. The three first named are the present incumbents. STATE TEACHERS' INSTITUTE. Ninety Teachers.

FIRST BLOOD For enrral I'reedman's-Bureau How ard in an Kagaeemeut with a tmall Squad of KedsUins ttraphie Ac count or the Affair. San Francisco, July 10. A dispatch re ceived at the army headquarters here from General Howard, dated ''Head of Birch creek, July 8th," states that he found the Indians in force on the hight near the head of Butler creek. He advanced two columns, one under Throckmorton, consisting of two companies of artillery, one of infantry and a few volunteers, aud the other under Colonel Barnard, consisting of seven companies of cavalry and twenty of Hobbius's scouts. General Howard accompanied the latter column. Barnard's scouts notified him of the vicinity of the hostile?, when the cavalry moved forward at a trot over three steep hills, each over a mile in the ascent. THE INDIANS WERE STRONGLY POSTED on a rocky crest. One company was left with the pack train; the others deployad and ad vanced hMdaoutaly under a heavy fire. The ascent is vl -scribed as steeper than that at Missionary Ridge, but no man broke ranks, though se eral saddles were emptied and manv horsts killed. The enemy were driven from their position to another hijl.t iu rear of the greater elevation, and crowned with the natural defenses of the lava rocks. In twen ty minutes this position was also stormed from different sides at once, and a rapid pursuit commenced of TIIE FLYING INDIANS, who abandoned their horses, provisions, am munition and camp material. The hostiles made for the thick timber covering the Blue Ridge and made another stand, but were again dislodged and pushed f ur or five miles further into the mountains. The rough coun try and the great exhaustion of the men and horses caused a cessation of the pursuit for to-day. In this engagement five enlisted men were wounded and about twenty horses killed. It is impossible to state THE LOSSES OF THE ENEMY. Their women and children aud best horses were moved before the fisrht began, appar ently m the direction of the Grande Ronde, and the hostiles fljd in that direction. The officers and men behaved in the best possible manner throughout the affair. CHIEF MOSES'S UAND LOOSE. Portland, July 10. A dispatch just re ceived here from Wallula, under date of the ninth (yesterday afternoon) states that just af ter the passage of the tram from Walla-Wa'la to that place, a band of sixty Indians crossed the railroad about six miles from there, all well-armed. They professed great friendship for the whites, and claimed to be Moses's In dians, sent to aid in fighting the hostiles. But few people here believe their story, and think them some of Moses's restless spirits GOING TO JOIN THE HOSTILES To-night some five or six families arrived from the lower Yokima, having been notified by the friendly Indians to leuve the country, a:ithe hostiles were expected to cross the Co lumbia and raid the whole region. ANOTHER ACCOUNT OF HOWARD'S FIGHT. The following intelligence was received from Pendleton: (ieneral Howard left Pilot Rock at six o'clock on the morning of July 8th, going toward Willow Springs. The scouts reported to Howard this morning that there we.e about two hundred and fifty In dians at or near Willow Springs, aud How ard pushed forward to meet them; probably ere this has engaged them. The following is from Umatilla, by a letter received from Pendleton, dated July 8th, by-Governor- Chad wick ; '"General Howard attacked the Indians at Beasley's mill. The nostiles were about four hundred strong. Howard repulsed them three times, and is still fighting. We cap tured from four to five hundred head ot slock, together with provisions and ammunition. We had htteen men wounded, two ot them mortally. J. B keeny." REPORTS FROM VARIOI'S AGENCIES. Washington, July 10 The acting com missioner of Indian affairs to-day received a telegram from Agent Roork, of the Klamath, Oregon, agency, dated July 6th, in which he says that no Iudians are off the reservation without authority, and that ail his Indians are loyal, peaceable and doing well during this unnecessary excitement. There may be six hundred hostiles in the field. There ap pears to be a determination there on the part ot many white people to have a war there, cause or no cause. A dispatch received at the Indian office to day from Agent Rhinehart, reports, under date of Canyon City, Oregon, July 7th, that all the Indians belonging to the Malheur agency are with the hostiles, except forty of the Winnemucca band, now at Fort M'Der mott, Nevada. Agent Bagley, of Siletz agency, Oregon, ia reply to a telegraphic iuouiry of the th'rd instant, reports to the Indian office, under date of July 9ta, that thtre are three hun dred and eighty of his Indians off their reser ration working for white settlers; seven hun dred remain. He adds: "I hold the Nas- tucca Indians here, and a: k that I may purchase supplies for the indigent and thote who are at work to the amount of five hun dred dollars, lean keep the Indians peace ably employed. There are no Siletz Indians hostile." Tha desired authority to purchase, supplies was communicated by telegraph to day.

JEFFEitSON DAVIS Delivers an Address on Occasion of the Presentation to him of a (.old Badge and Certificate of Membership of the Association of the Army of the Tennessee. He Reviews flip War, Ms Causes and Consequences and the Course of the Conquerors States Rights the key of an Enduring (iOTern ment und a Permanent Peace. Mississippi City, July 10. The follow ing is a brief synopsis of the address made to-day by Jefferson Davis on the occasion of the presentation to him of a gold badge and certificate of membership of the Army of Tennessee. Colonel James Hingan made the presentation address. Mr. Davis, after expressing his gratitude for the kindness and honor bestowed, recapitulated the stir ring events of the war and the hardships endured. He said the question of a State's tight of secession In 18H1 was at least debatable, but the course pur sued by the Federal government after the war had ceased vindicated the judgement of those who held separation to he necessary to the safety and freedom of the southern States. Their unsuccessful attempt to separate left those In power to work their will as It had been manifested when they first got control of the government. The events are too recent to require a recapitulation, and the ruin they have de veloped require no other memorial than the moral wreck which the country rsents The speaker re assured his hearers of bis unshaken belief In the right of secession, and the duty of every citizen to battle for the cause of his State. After secession he reviewed the campaigns from Fort Henry to Shlloh, and in speaking of Albert Sidney Johnson, he said: "Was it that his grand presence Inspired you with un i easured confidence and the hope of happier days, when opportunity should offer, or was it that your judgment told you that you follower!, as I verily believe you did, the greatest soldier and the ablest s'atsman, civil or military, ConfVderats or Federal. Mr. Davl then reviewed the operations about Vlcksburg and Port Hudson, and stoke In glowing terms of their defenders. He said "Let no one suppose that in thus vindicating our cause, and in p tying due trib ute to your gallant deeds, I am seeking to disturb such peace as we have or to avoid the logic of events. You have done your duty iu the past, and I would ask no more than that you should fulfill equally well the duties of the present and the future. The brave.-t. as a rule, are the gentl:Sr, and ihey are also the truest to every obligation assumed. You struck for lndependence.and were un successful; you agreed to return to the Union and abide by the constitution and the laws made In con formity with it. Thus far, and no farther, do I un derstand your promise to extend. Referring to the legislation of congress which followed the war, he said the tax-payers know that an increased burden was imposed on them by the contracts made with the brndholders; the merchants and ship-owners know that we have lost the carrying trade. And to what extent will thsy assign a policy which prove- ts the registration of American ships that had changed their flag during the war, which imposes such duties upon raw materials as to Inter fere with ship-building, and prohibits the registra tion of a foreign-built ship, though It be by purchase the proiterty or citizens of the Uulted States? Will the people, the source of all power, allow a longer continuance or such palpable wrong to the masses, such ruin to the interests which 1 ave been equal ly our pride and our means of prosperity? A form of government must correspond t j the charac ter of the ieopie for which it Is appropriate. It Is therefore that republics have failed whenever cor ruption enters the body politic anil renders the peo ple unworthy to rule. Then they become the fit sub jects ot despotism, and a despot is always at hand to respond to the c ill. A Ciesar could not subject a people who were tit to be free, nor could a Brutus save them If they were fit for subjuga tion. The fortitude with which our people have borne the oppression Imposed on them since the war was closed, the resolute will with which they have struggled against poverty and official pillage, is their highest glory, aud give the best assurance of final triumph. Well mav we re joice iu the regained possession ot local self -government in the power of the people to choose their own representatives, and o legislate uncontrolled by bayontts. Tats Is the great victory, and It promises another as the sequence to it a total non-interference by the Federal government with the domestic affairs of the States, the renewal of the time-honored doctrine of State sovereignty and the supremacy ot law will secure permanent peace, freedom, and prosperity. The constitution of the United States, inteipreted as it was by those who made it, is the prophet's rod to sweeten the briny water from which flowod the strife, the carnage, the misery, and the shame cf the past, as well as the perils of the pres ent. Every evil which has befallen our Institutions is directK traceable to the perversion of the compact of Unien, and the usurpation by the Federal govern ment ol undelegated powers. Let one memorable example sutnee for explanation when we asked for admission as a -late into li e union ro wnicn sne had lawful right under the constitution and usages of the United States, and also under the terms of the treaty by which the Territory was acquired, her application was resisted and her admission was finally purcnaseu oy tne unconstitutional conecsion miscalled compromise. Then that establish ment of a politic geographic line was announced to the apostle of Democracy, who, full of jears and honors In retirement watched with profound solicitude the course of the government he had so manfully contributed to Inaugurate, hi s prophetic vision saw the end, of which this was the beginning, the news fell upon his ear like a fire ball at night. Men had differed and would differ about measures and public policy, according to their circumstances or mental characteristics. Such dif ferences tended to tne elucidation ol the truth ot the tiiumph of reason over error. Parties so founded would not be sectional, but when the Federal gov ernment made a parallel of latitude a polltl cal line, a sectional party could not fulfill the ends for which the Union was ordained and established. If tha Unfltatlons of the consti tution had been observed, and Its purposes had di rected the Federal legislation, no such act :.-ould have been passed, the Ud of the pardon box might have remained closed, and the country have escaped a long train of similar aggressions, which ag grandized one section, impoverished the other, and itddlng insult to Injury, finally destroyed the frater nity which had bound them together. It was no part of mv purpose, as ha- been already shown, to discuss the politics of the day, though the deep In terest I must ever feel In the affairs of the country has not allowed me to Ignore them, and will not permit me to be unobservant of passing events or of indifference to the humiliating exposures to which the Federal government has of late been sub jected. Separated from any active participation in Bubllc affairs, I may not properly judge of those who ave to bear the heat and burden of the day. Repre senting no one. It would be quite unreasonable to hold any other responsible for an opinion which I mav entertain. How and when a restora tion of the government to the principles and practices of its earlier period may be accom plished, It Is not given us to foresee. For me it re mains only earn -stly to hope and hopefully to be lieve, though I may not see It, that the restoration will come. To disbelieve this Is to discredit the pop ular Intelligence and integrity on whlc'a self-government must necessarily depend. Though severely tried, my faith In the people Is not lot. and I prayerfully trust, though I should not live to see the hope leullzed. tht it will be permitted me to die, believing that the principles on which our fathers founded th?ir government will finally prevail throughout the land, aid the ends for which it was instituted w.ll yet be attained, and rendered as perpetual as human in stitutions may be. I have said that we could uot foresee how or when th's may be brought to pass, but it Is not so dlitlcult to determine what means are needful to secure the result. First in order and Importance, for It Is ths corner stone of the edi fice, the elective franchise must be Intelligently and honestly exercised. Let there be no class legisla tion, but low taxes, low salaries and no perquisites, and let the officials b3 held to a strict accountability to their constituents Nepotism and gift-taking by a public agent deserv the severest censure and the bestowal of the people's oft! jes as a reward for partisan ser vice should be as a gross breach of trust Let not such an offense be considered, for in a government of the people there can be no abuses permissible. As usefully counteifeltlng each other, truth and justice and honor presided at the birth of our Federal Union, and Its mission can only be performed by their continued attendance upon It. For this there Is not needed a condition ot human perfectlbllitv, but only so much of virtue as will control vice and teach the mercenary and self seeking that power and distinction and honor will be awarded to patriotism, capacity and integrity. To your self sacrlfislng, self denvlng defenders of Imperishable truths and Inalienable rights, I look for the per formance of whatever man can do for the welfare and happiness of his country. During the delivery of the address Mr. Davi9 was frequently applauded. TENNESSEE NEWS. Nashville has iust organized a Forest and Stream gun club, wuh twenty-eight crack shots.

General Sherman, in a general Older, in vites the attention of a 1 officers of the army to the section in the army appropriation bill providing that, "it shall not be lawful to em ploy any part of the army as a posse comita tiis or otherwise for the purpose of ex ecuting laws, except in such cases and under such circumstances as such employment of said force may be expressly authorized by the constitution or by act of congress." The Older contains provisions of the constitution and acts of congress understood as intended to be excepted from the operatiou of the above section and authorizing the employ ment of military forces for the purpose of executing the laws, namely: First The fourth article of the constitu tion declaring that the United States shall guarantee to every State in tin Union a re publican form of government, and shall pro tect each of them against invasion, and on application ot the legislature, or of the ex ecutive when the legislature cannot be con vened, against domestic violence. Secona Toe civils riuhts law, sections 1984, 1989, and 1991, ot the revised statutes, which makes it lawlut for t ie Piesident to employ such part ot the land or naval forces, or of the militia, as may be necessary to aid in the execution of the judicial pro cess, or as shall be necessary to prevent violation and for a di,e exec ition of civil rights. Third The elecriv- franchise law, section '2002, prohibiting the trosence tf troops near the polls, unless it bs necessary to repel armed enemies of the United State?, or to keep peace at the polls. Fourth The Indian laws, sections '2150, 2151 and 2152 of the revised s a utes, which authorize the apprehension f tvery person who may be iu the Indian country in viola tion of law, the examinatiou and seizure of stores, preventing the intioduction of persons or property iuto the Indian country coufrary to law, and also in destroying and breaking up any distillery for manufacturing ardent spirits set up or cont nued ia the Indian country. Fifth Section 2460 of the revised sUtutes, authorizing the President to employ military force to prevent the felling, cutting down, or other destruction of the timber of the United States in Florida, and to prevent the trans portation or carrying away ot any such tim ber as may already be felled or cut down, and to take such other and further measures as may be deemed advisable for the preserva tion of the timber of the United States in Florida. Sixth Section 5287 of revised statutes makes it lawful for the President or such per son as he shall empower for that purpose, to employ such part ot the land or naval forces of the United States, or of the militia there of, as shall be necessary to ccmpel any foreign vessel t) depart from the United States in ail cases which, by the laws ot natioLS or trea ties ot the United States, she ought not to re main within the united states. Seventh Section 5297 of the revised stat utes, which makes it lawful for the Piesident, in case of insurrection iu any State against the government thereof, on application cf the legislature ot such State, or of the execu tive when the legislature cannot be con vened, to call forth such number of militia of any other Stite or States which may be ap plied tor, as lie deems sufficient to sup press such insurrection, or, on like ap plication, to employ for the same purposes such part of the land or naval forces of the United States as he deems necessary: and sections 4298, 52)9 and 5l16, authorizing the 1 resident to employ troops to enforce the laws whenever by reason of unlawful obstruc tions, or assemblages of persons, or n liellion against the authority of the government t f the United States, the execution of the laws is obstructed.

The order concludes as follows: "Officers of the army will not permit the use of troops under their command to aid the civil authori ties as a itosve oomttatus, or in the execution of the laws, except as aathoriied in the fore going enactments. When applications ti r the use of troops for these purposes are re ceived, they must be forwarded through the military channel to the adiutant-general tor consideration and action of the President." A MAIL CONTKACTOK ARRK8TKD. Malcolm A. M'Near was to-day arrested in this city charged ou the oath of Joseph Bur roughs, cf the postcftice department, with refusing to carry the United States mails frum Ashford to Fort Kent, Maine, after hav ing been awarded the contract. This case is the first one under the late act of congress, the object of which was to break op straw bidding. Howard's fkiht confirmed. The war department is in receipt of a dis patch from General M'Dowell, confirming the press account of General Howard's fight with the Indians. sherman's visit to the city ok bond holders. It is believed that the visit of Secretary' Sherman to New York has reference to an early resumption ol specie payment, and it is known that there has been a discussion among the prominent treasury officers here as to the propriety of soon paying out the smaller g .Id coin. The visit of Treasurer Gil fallen to New York is closely related with that of Secretary Sherman. The secretary will probably be absent for some time.
