Some of the lighter movements embraced
in the radical and wholesale revolution of
the age, are worthy of notice and recol
lection, now that the greater issues are
practically determined. And some of the
incidental demonstrations that have been
made deserve a special mention. The
value of education in its speciSc senses
has been shown during the progress of
the war. Perhaps it has never been
doubted by any intelligent citizen who
has given reflection to the subject, that
the approved graduate of a cadet school
would make a more efficient officer as well
on the fierce field of battle as when attend
ing to the routine duty of garrison life.
Not merely the intellect supplied with
scientific facts constitutes the advantage
which a skillfully trained soldier has over
and above a civilian volunteer of much
greater natural ability; the emotions
themselves aro disciplined, and tho will is
set with iron power through the con
scious possession of expert knowledge in
the use of arms and tho manoeuvring of
platoons. This has been more fully illus
trated—in a somewhat contrasted manner
—by the obstinacy and the successful re
sistance oftentimes of the hosts of rebel
lion ; the rank and file infinitely inferior
in character to the make-up of the op
posing forces, yet triumphant through the
school-cunning of traitor West Pointers,
who led them or directed them in the con
test. It is not true that there ever was
what could be termed a popular prejudice
against \\ est Point—if we leave out of con
sideration the unpopularity which sprang
from the noticeable majority of traitors
who had been nurtured by the Govern
ment at that Academy of Arms. There,
however, as at every other college for high
culture, the correct estimate of the pupils'
abilities was*not made. Some who wore
the highest honors on Commencement Day
proved on literal trial, on the Federal side,
to be incompetents ; while several among
the number of thoso who barely squeezed
through the formal examinations, now
wear in unchallenged right the Generals·
stars. The lesson seems to be plainly :
T)ur military schools must be enlarged,
and tho best masters must be em
ployed. and it would be as fool
ish to demolish the West Point
Institution as it would be to blow up all
our gunboats. \\ e deem it a fortunate fact
that three Generals of almost equal bril
liancy of achievement—two of them, at
least, of parallel service—now adorn the
Army Service of the United States. If
the glory of the latest and complete vic
tories had centered absolutely on General
Grant, we should have had years and
years of dogmatic and often disastrous as
sertion and conclusion, to the effect that
none other than a man of precisely Grant's
habits and temperament could be a suc
cessful General with a large command and
a long line for battle. As it is, nothing
could be more diverse, in method of rea
soning and action, while conducting a
campaign, than the styles of the three
prominent chieftains, Grant, Sherman,
Sheridan. They are, in fact, lovingly
appreciated by the people—and their
charactcrs so studied—as eminent intel
lectual contrasts with each other. Each
cast in an essentially different mould, they
have contributed, as by a Divine appoint
ment, to a National success as splendid in
all the details of attainment as the pro
portions of the prime issue of the war
could suggest or demand.
ΑΒΑΤΕ A NUISANCE.
We would like to know how long the
treason sheet published at San Francisco
is to be tolerated by the officers of the
Government there stationed, whose duty
it is to suppress the vile concera ? We
know very well that comparatively few
really loyal people in San Francisco ever
see or read the columns of the solitary
Democratic journal published in their
midst. It is true that the conductors of
that journal have a shameless desire to be
branded as* traitors, in like manner with
their more courageous associates who
stood in the rebel ranks at the South.
But th y wrongly imagine that notoriety
to be gained by a Grand Jury indictment
would lack the qualities of infamy. They
would like to provoke α mob, and have
their den stripped by the quick violence
of a Vigilance Committee. Against such
a proceeding all true citizens will protest.
But the " overt act " constituting treason
has received a practical definition during
the war which would include within
indictable folds the language of the
wretches who print the metropolitan organ
of Democracy. This conspicuous notice
will undoubtedly please" the parties to
whom we allude ; provided the measures
herein recommended arc not adopted by
by the commissioned ministers of justice
whom we invoke to duty. It is tolerably
clear that matter· political are fixed far
beyond all such character of assault as are
made by the enemies of Ρ epublican free
dom. But recognizing treason as a crime,
in theory, let it be so dealt with in fact in
all place» and at all times.

THE INDIAN WAS.
The Indians on the Plains appear to be
too numerous for our troops yet, though
reports say the latter have lately been
considerably increased in number. They
have had added to their number, it is true,
a division of one thousand mounted in
fantry and a brigade of Sheridan's cavalry,
perhaps a thousand more ; but that does
not begin to be enough to operate against
the large number of savages with whom
they will have to deal, in the immense,
great wild country which they m^ke theii
home, and whose every fastness they well
know. Their numbers are not sufficient,
because since they have arrived in the In
dian country, they have been unable to
stay the depredations of the redskins and
punish them for their impunity. While
the newspapers of Colorado, Utah and
Montana come to us with numerous ac
counts of murders, robberies and destruc
tion of property by the hostile savages,
they give us no accounts of their proper
chastisement. We suppose the troops are
distributed in small companies protecting
Government posts or along the line of the
Overland road, acting as guards to coaches,
or defending telegraph stations. The
trouble is, there are not enough of them
yet. On the 29th of last March General
Connor assumed command of the troops
in Nebraska, Colorado and Utah, and all
that portion of Dacotah lying west of the
27th degree of longitude. He had over
2,200 miles of direct mail and ^telegraph
line to protect against hostile Indians,
(along the line,) estimated to number
6,000 warriors. Thus he bad about
a half million square miles of territory
to guard, its numerous forti to gar
rison, its thousands of miles of stage
route and telegraph line to protect, and
an immense number of coaches to escort
and defend ; and with how many men ?
All told, 3,800! And for these 3,800
troops, it is stated, very inferior provisions
had been provided, and scanty supplies of
, all things necessary to carry on operations
away from the forta and stations, had
been furnished. It will not do. Better
provisions must be made for the support
and efficiency of the soldiers, and their
number at least sextupled very soon, or
the warm season will have passed away
and the people west of the Rocky Moun
tains will have to suffer from Indian dep
redations until the middle of another
summer at least. The troops that have
been arriving now and then from the East
since the fall of Richmond, have been too
few in number. On the 18th of June,
1,000 troops arrivedkt Laramie from the
Army of the Potomac, and about the
same time a brigade of Sheridan's cavalry
reached Leavenworth en route for the
prairies further west. This brigade con
sisted of four regiments of Michigan cav
alry who had charged with Sheridan in
sixty-three well fought battles. They are
brave men, but not numerous enough to
deal with the enemy in the immense scope
of country where they must be followed
and fought. These are all the troops from
the East of whom we have any knowledge
of arriving at the West. To keep the In
dians from descending on ever) point
which becomes unprotected, requires that
they shall be followed up, hunted down,
and exterminated, oi taught a wholesome
lesson of fear. The most effective as well
as the least expensive way of doing this,
evidently, is to put men enough after
them at once to completely " clean them
out." That certainly is the only way to
bring the war to a close this present sum
mer, and that is what can and should be
done.
IIomaof. το A French Pkiscb.—The

tisement in the Mazatlan Timet :
'•Prince Talleyrand is requested to set
tle an account of seventeen dollars ($17)
for work ordered and received by him.

This modest request to settle up of the
grandson of the Great Talleyrand of his
tory, is beautifully illustrative of the
homage European grandees will reccive on
the western continent.
Λ Ynnkrc Mchool .Tlmrni in Richmond.
Λ lady who is engaged in teaching chil
dren in Richmond writes a letter to a
friend in San Francisco, who publishes a
certain interesting portion of it in the
Bulletin. W'c make the subjoined ex
tracts :
Last Sunday we went to Jeff. Davis'
church. His pew had been locked up till
lately. The old minister turned very red
when he prayed for the President. Peo
ple look very old fashioned after four
years of war. The bonnets are decidedly
old-timey. However, the wearers held
their heads high enough, and don't seem
conscious of their ridiculous appearance.
The colored people are remarkably well
j dressed. You sec they tucked away their
j silver, and now are said to be the richest
people in the city, while their masters in
vested in such worthless stuff as Confed
erate bonds. The papers I send you were
taken from Vice President Stephens' office
with my own hands.
The ministers, the women and Satan
are all in league ; but the day will come
I when truth will triumph and this be our
Eden indeed. The ministers preach
against us and threaten to make it too hot
for us, while the women insult us by call
ing us the offscourings of the North.
There is one of them, however, who de
j serves ten gold medals for standing hy ui>
ι through it all. Many a time she has
smuggled some little comfort to our starv
ing boys in Libby and Belle Isle. She is
truly loyal, and her facts about rebel gov
ernment would make your ears tingle.
She only receives es at her house. .
Sallie* and I went all over Libby and
Castle Thunder one day. The former is a
great, grim, horrible building. The lower
tloor is wet constantly, and almost suffo
cated us with its horrid air, yet there our
men lived month after month, through
cold and heat. So wonder they died by
scores.

A RENOVATED COUNTRY.
The expression of tho late President
Lincoln when he was a member of Con
gress, that thin country would one day be
"all slave or all free," has been realized.
Napoleon made a prediction that Europe
would ultimately become "all Republican
or all Cossack," and the fulfillment of his
prophecy is not at all improbable. Here
we have opinions from tho two leading
men of their respective generations ; one
relating to this country and the other to
Europe, both of which are founded, ndt
upon mere guess or supposition, but upon
a fundamental social principle. And this
is the principle : That there is in every
nation a predominating, α vitalizing pow
er, which sooner or later must infuse itself
into every channel, just as the heart in
fuses blood into every vein. Thp South
long and strenuously resisted the en
croachment of Northern ideas, and
strove to stay the resistless tide by
counter attempts to infuse Southern
principles into the Northern people.
But the effort was futile, for the vitality of
tho nation was in the North, and the
steady flow of tho vitalizing property at
length bore opposition, and Northern
principles have at last permeated the
whole South. The natural result of this
triumph will be to break down the dis
tinctive characteristics of the South, and
cause a singleness of ideas and principles
throughout the whole country. Thus the
system of labor is now being organized on
the same basis at the South that is pre
valent at the North. Following this will
come the introduction of free schools, the ]
distribution of books, and other means for
the acquirement of education. Then
manufactories will spring up where they
have never been known before, industrial
pursuits of all kinds will gradually grow
up after the manner of the North, and in
short the energy, industry and persever
ance of the Northern people will, ere
long, place the South on a social and busi
ness level with the North, and the only
distinction will bo the natural products oi
the soil. What effect this transforma
tion will have upon the negro race in
tho South, it is difficult to determine.
They have never been tested in competi
tion with Anglo-Saxon energy, for they
have not until lately been obliged to pro
vide for and take care of themselves.
They will now be brought into direct
competition with a class of people who
arc proverbial for their industry atvd en
ergy, and if the negroes keep their heads
above tho surface in such competition,
they must expect to do it by an equal
display of industry. But there is room
for all, and employment for all. The
negro, by virtue of his lower social posi
tion. will, perhaps, be obliged to fill a
lower sphere than the white ; but there is
no reason why he should not become im
pregnated with the energetic and indus
trious characteristics of the North, and
eventually reach a much higher position
than he now occupies. The whoje South
will now undergo a process of " Yankee
izing." The slave oligarchs have disap
peared, and their caste doctrines have
gone with them. It now only remsin»
for the North to fill the void thus left,
when the whole country will be animated
by the same impulse of progress and ad
vancement.
.Tlurdrra near Fori Bridger.
Fort Bridoek, U. T., )
July 17th, 1865. $
Ed. Vedette: Another is added to
the catalogue of foul murders that have
come under our notice in this vicinity the
present summer. Yesterday it was re
ported to me that the bodies of two men,
chained together, were lying on a sand
bar, in Black's Fork, a few miles below
Millcrsvillc, the first mail station east of
this place.
A Mexican, called " Joe," who was re
siding near the station, seeing α dark
body, partly conccaled by the water,
which he supposed to be a dead horse,
and wishing to get the mane and tail for
making lariats, went into the water and
approached the object, when, to his horror,
he discovered the mutilated bodies of two
men chained together. Being much
frightened, he immediately hastened to
report the circumstance.
This morning I sent R. H. Hamilton
and L. B. Scott to investigate the matter.
They have just returned, and report the
statement of the Mexican correct.
They, in company with a number of
others camping along the road, dragged
the bodies ashore and examined them as
minutely as their condition would admit.
They were fastened together with ropes
and then with a log-chain, the head of the
one being in the direction of the feet of
the other. They had apparently been in
the water some four or Ave dave as the
hair had partly slipped from their heads.
The faces were much swollen, and the
sculls horridly mangled as if done with a
club or axe.
One of the men was about five feet
seven inches high, weighed some one
hundred and fifty pounds, had light hair,
sandy whiskers and mustache ; was dress
ed in black sa'inett over-coat, light tweed
sack under-coat, purple mixed cassimere
pants, white ribbed drawers, striped wool
len shirt, heavy brogan boots, much worn;
nothing was found in his pockets except
an india rubber pocket enmb, two red silk
handkerchiefs and a printed mail road di
rectory. A watch chain with key at
•«rthasi tL'Bu ο roil nH hi· tiprlf.
The other was about five feet ten inches
high, weight about one hundred and forty
pound·, had brown hair very light, thin
whiskers, and was apparently a younc
man. He was dressed in a blue imitation
soldier's overcoat, dark brown jeans un
dercoat, blue jeans vest, cotton check un
dershirt, and grey flannel overshirt, white
cotton drawers, yellow jeans panto and
heavy brogan shoes, much worn. Had
in his pockets a brown wool hat, a pair of
heavy wool mitts, two handkerchiefs, one
a red silk and the other a white linen, a
pocket knife and pipe, and a circular pat
ent cap-box, on which was scratched "W.
G. Steele, Jackeon county, Mo." The
pockets of both were filled with cobble
stones, as if for the purpose of sinking the
bodies in the water. No papers of any
kind were found on their persons which
might lead to their identification, nor
could the spot where they were murdered
be found, the recent rain having obliter
ated all traces. It is conjectured that they
; belonged to some train, had been dis
charged on arriving at Salt Lake City,·
ι were returning home and were murdered
! by their companions for their money.
The deed was bold and inhuman, and
perpetrated on a portion of the road which
is thickly settled with traders and con
stantly thronged with immigrants. I
•hall make every effort to detect the mur
derers, and trust that any person who
may see this notice and can furnish me
with any information that might aid me,
will do so. Your ob't servant.

From the Sacramento Union of Yeaterdaj.
Macraoaent· Politic·.
Λβ a consequence of the disruption on
the 25th, there were two Conventions in
session yesterday in Sacramento, each
claiming to represent the Unionists o{ this
county. The Contention at Tnrn-Verein ,
Hall comprised a large majority of the
delegates chosen at the primary election,
including a number who had figured upon
Low tickets. The other body, in the As
sembly Chamber, was " Short," but per
sistent. Each Convention adopted a
series of resolutions. The Tum-Verein
Hall Convention declared, in its platform,
that it indorsed the policy of the present
Administration, rejoiced over the triumph
of our arms, and the overthrow of the
slave power, opposed the sole of the min
eral lands and the taxation of the mines,
favored the introduction of greenbacks as
α circulating medium, condemned the in
vasion of Mexico by France, demanded
rigid economy of administration, and be
lieved in the necessity of the enactment
of a Registry Low. The other Conven
tion declared in favor of the Constitu
tional amendment abolishing negro
slavery, of the repeal of the Specific
Contract Law and the introduction of Na
tional banks, of the Monroe doctrine, of
the reorganization of the militia system
and of α change in the mode of collecting
taxes, and against any immediate change
of our State Constitution so as to secure
'he elective franchise to the colored race.
Each set of resolution» touches upon sub
jects which should have been left to the
State Convention. Each undertakes to
pledge tho Union men of this county in
favor of the repeal of a law framed to pre
vent swindling and the introduction of the
greenback currency without regard to its
relative value, when it is notorious that
upon these points loyalists who are
equally earnest In supporting the Govern
ment entertain different views. The Turn
Vereln Hall resolution against the sale of
mineral lands and the taxation of the
mines favors what wo believe to be the
wisest policy upon that subject, but there
arc good Union men who hold a different
opinion, and at all events, no issue is pre
sented which calls for a definite déclara·
tion by a mere County Convention. The
Low Convention probably intended to
conciliate Copperhead votes by an appar
ent opposition to negro suffrage, but the
resolution upon that topic is so worded
that it can be construed for either side.
That body declares it will oppose any
amendment of our State Constitution giv
ing the negroes a right to vote until a Na
tional Union Convention shall pass upon
the issue. Seeing that the Constitution
cannot possibly be so amended for several
years, even if the ruling majority favor
that policy, why meddle with the ques
tion at all at this time and in a County
Convention ?

A Horrible Reptile.—Alluding to

Surratt, the editor of the Monitor says :
"The idea of hanging α woman causes
one's blood to run cold."
We wonder what was the temperature
of this reptile's blood when he heard that
Mr. Lincoln had been foully murdered ?
We conjecture that his blood did not begin
to freeze until he heard his printing truck
crashing in tho street or the tramping of
many feet on the stairway. If he pre
sumes to offer additional* insult to the

of tho cocatrice, his den should be emptied
