BATTLE WITH TOE INDIANS.
ST. PAUL, Sept. 19.—Meagre but offi­
cial dispatches have been received from
Gen. Sturgig. He says, in substance,
that the Nez Perces flanked him and
proceeded down Clark's Fork. Ha fol­
lowed in pursuit, making forced march­
es witb little'ifor his command to,eat or
dripk.foT ,two days,. Wbety he came upon
them on the Yellowstone, seven miles
below the moi}th of Clark's Fork, and
foaght thea nearly allday. He reports
.that he captured aereral hundred horses
and:killed a great many Indians and
Iost some seldiers. The Crows fought
well, and (captured one hundred and
fifty horses. The Nez Perces had
burned the Macadow's mill and several
ranches! Among other stories and ru­
mors the Helena Independent says:
Sturgis was assisted by Sanford's cav
airy, and that the River Crows from the
Muslceshell have headed off the Nez
Perces and are driving them toward
Sturgis. The Crows and solders capt1*
ured one thousand three hundred hors1
es. Three hundred more Crows joined
Sturgis on the night of the 14th and
pursuit of the Nez Perces was contin­
ued. Howard is twenty-five miles be­
hind SturgR
Other news is unimportant.

Who the Beys and Pashas Are.
New York Graphic.'
Osman Pasha is a Tennesseean
named Crawford, in disguise. The tel­
egraph reveals 'him. It ih also an­
nounced through private chaanels of
communication, that Suloiman Pasha
is Oakey Hall, that Baker Pasha, in
stead of being the Colonel Valentine,
late of the English army, is, in fact,
the Baker who killed Bill Pool thai
Ifehemet Pasha is Dr. Mary Walker—
the Me-be-met being a malicious allu­
sion to the janitor of the treasury de­
partment that the Grand Duke Nicb
OlIs is Bishop a Clevelandoff Cozeski,ot
and General Neopokoit

inrfiaitad's trtMury, 81ippridik Pasha
ii the bead 9l the eonnaiaaary -depart

drummer now bifore Plevna. This is
curious.
The Marine Hospital.
It seems we were mistaken as to the
amountof hospital funds collected at this
port for the current year, though not
mistaken as to the amount paid by the
steamboats operating on the Upper
Missouri river. Of the thirty-seven
steamboats plying to and from this
port hospital dues have been collected
from all but nine at St. Louis, though
if they remain in these waters they will
pay at this post next rseason. cTbe
amount actually collected .at the 'Bis­
marck custom house is $759,54, though
from only nine of the thirty-seven
boats. '1
It seems the situation is not .as hard
as we had presumed, for,, about aix
weeks aigo the Secretary of .War..order
ed the post hospital at- Ft. Lincoln to
ireceive marine, patients and provide
for them, but the order has net been
published and therefore no advantage
to the seamen resulted.
Elsewhere we give a eopy of the pe­
tition to the Secretary of the Treasury
for a hospital at this point bat correct
the false impression which had obtain­
ed as to the ameunt of funds actually
collected.
We are indebted to Collector Frank
enfield for the figures above given, and
he is also our authority for the state­
ment that the Secretary of War has or­
dered the marine patients cared for at
the Ft. Lincoln hospital.
Sitting Boll.
A correspondent tells the story of
the cause of Sitting Bull leaving the
British possession. He says the Brit­
ish officers and Sitting Bull had a coun­
cil, and after the council followed the
usual dance, A yeung half-breed, Bill
Culverson, at present a government
scout, joined in the daacing. After it
was over he became excited, counted
his scars and said to Sitting Ball:
"Look, 1 have killed so many of your
hostile red Indians." Sitting Bull
drew his revolver. The movement was
imitated by Culverson,but before either
had time to shoot, Major Walsh\ with
his revolver drawn, sprang between
them and told Culverson to pat bis
pistol away.' Turning to Sitting Bull
he said: "I want yon to understand
that you cannot commit any of your
deviltries here as you do in the United
States. I wlll give yeu and.y«jar:.tribe
.five days to leave this* country.' .Ifyon
are not gone then, or if you ever re­
turn, Twill fight yoa. If yoo are ever
panghc herd again, Or if yoa shoot this
man, 1*11 have yon banged by the neck

ToThe Hon. John Sherauut, Seere
tary git the Ti'eaaiu of the Raited
States.
GREETING We the undersigned,
owners, masters, pilots, clerks, engineers,
mates, and other officers and seamen en­
gaged in navigating the waters of the
upper Missouri and Yellowstone rivers,
would respectfully represent to you the
following facts: 1st. that all, persons
engaged upon steamboats, in .whatever
capacity, are required by United States
marine law to pay forty cents per month
as dues to the United States marine, hos­
pital fund 2nd that where we are at
present engaged between Bismarck aad
the military posts nerth and west from
that point, we .have no opportunity to
derive any benefit from this fund as the
nearest marine hospital is at St.' Louis,
eighteen hundred miles distant, render­
ing it utterly impracticable to go there.
We would further represent that the
rapid development ot this Northwestern
country since the completion of the
Northern Pacific railroad to the Missouri
river and the change of base of supplies
for the upper country since the completion
of said road has necessitated the with­
drawing of many boats from below to
run. in the navigable waters of the
Missouri and Yellowstone, of which
there are twelve hundred miles above
Bismarck. Where a few years ago but
an occasional boat was necessarr to
the business of the upper Missouri
trade, there has been during the pres­
ent season thirty-seven boats employed
in this trade, a» per accompanying slip
from Bismarck
TRIBUNE,
to which we
respectfully invite your attention, and
this in coming years will naturally in
crease. These boats have employed
the past season 1200 men, paying per
month the sum of $480 as hospitable
dues. The average season being seven
months makes in the aggregate $3360
collected from our boats this year, and
in no case has any individual received
any benefit from it. Therefore in view
of the above facts, which we vouch for
as facts, we would respectfully pray
you to establish a marine hospital at
Bismarck, believing such an institu*
tion more needed at this point than at
any other in this whole country, as we
have no outside medical facilities like
St. Louis and other points below us.
That the foregoing facts and figures
may make apparent the necessity of the
fulfillment of oar prayer, is the earnest
desire of your petitioners.
Work has been suspended on the rail­
road between Winnebago City aid .Fair
mount, Minn. A contract has beep let
for grading the St. Paul aad Siwx .City
R. R. branch west from I.uverne to" the
state line.
