C. Moonv. Chairman, ANew York court has decided that a Chinaman is neither white enough nor black enough to vote. The early laws upon this subject permitted the nituralization of white citizens, and the later modifications have been in favor of the blacks or persons of African birth or blood. The Chinese are neither one nor the other, and cannot, there fore, be naturalized. A private letter from an accurate observ er who has a good rain-guage, shows that Wednesday night, July 10th, five and one fourth inches of rain fell inside of twelve hours. In the afternoon and night of the 11th, four and three-fourths inches more of rain fell, making ten inches in forty hours. Again last Sunday evening and Monday morning the floods time, adding three and one-fourth inches to the preceding. Crops, roads, bridges and other property was great ly damaged. SOUE INSIDE HISTORY. The interior department is in receipt of information of an official nature, from In dian Commissioner Hayt, to the effect that the published accounts of fraud at Crow Creek agency are true. Inasmuch as the papers in the case were sent from Crow Creek to the interior department at Wash ington early last April, it seems unnecessary for the Indian commissioner to come all the way to Dakota to find out that of which the original evidence, if any there be, is on file at the department. The outcome of his late visit to the Indian country makes us think that he has skipped over the docu mentary testimony alleged to have been placed in his hands months ago, and is send ing these damaging statements to headquar ters wholly upon the strength of assertions made by Hammond and Dougherty, That the former is not a competent wit ness we do not hesitate to assert. His acts at times are much like the acts of an insane person, and here in this community, where he has been well known for over a year, a general impression exists that Hammond is not sound in mind. It is singular fact that the traders who have suffered removals af Hammond's hands are as a class those who have been approached by hin with in direct propositions for gifts of robes, furs or ponies, and have not responded by sending in gratuitous offerings. We mention in the list of traders who have been given opportunities for adding to Ham mond's store of robes and furs, or of placing in his possession valuable Indian ponies, the names of Clarkson, Hudson and Robb. Each one of these gentlemen has been de prived of his tradership. In the case of Capt. Dougherty there is motive for the position he has assumed, and that motive is personal revenge. Both Liv ingston and Gregory grievously offended him some time ago, and his vindictive na ture has prompted the retaliation we are now witnessing. He saw in the erratic Hammond a tool whom he could use, and right well has he utilized the material in his hands. Dougherty's attack has been direct ed against all the civil altacheea of Brule and Crow Creek agencies for the reason that all were friends of the men whonj he sought to destroy. Hammond was previously pre judiced sgainst both Livingston and OregO' ry bi, Atari they were the appointees of the Episcopal church, and a very little encour- agement from Dougherty induced liim to make Ihe move for their ruin. Uu litis been o|icnly liostilo to tliu church over since hi. arrival in Yankton as superintendent of the Dakota Indians. 1 le has frequently assorted that he would break up the power of that organization and the pifrsuit of this inten tion soon became the ruling mania of his waking hours. Bishop Hare was the leading and special object of his enmity and the slightest suspicion within htm furnished an imaginary clue to evils beyond, which were followed with all the strange infatuation of a mind diseased. Dr. Livingston, the favorite agent of the church and the people, a man whose affairs have always, as far as known, been conducted in the most ezempla ry manner, becamc, at an early day, a sub ject of aversion and distrust with Hammond, who has operated from the beginning with the purpose of breaking him down. He has said that if he could not convict Livingston he would ruin his reputation, and from the shape that matteis have taken it appears that he is ready to be satisfied with the lat ter punishment. These then are the men upon whose state ments Commissioner Ilayt relies so implic ity that he gives them to the world unsub stantiated. These are the men-so pure in thought and deed that their charges are ac cepted as the incarnation of truth, while the men against whom they are directed are hnied the privilege of introducing evidence in rebuttal. Mr, Ilayt may believe that their assertions are sufficiently well backed up to render them unafsailable, but it is cer tertainly as incumberent upon high officials as it is upon their more humble fellow beings accept and act upon the well established principle that every man is innocent until he is provenjjjuilty. 4 L. 1).

Camp—Red Cloud and Spotted Tail Indian. Deter mined to Move. A special dispatch to the Chicago Tri bune from Crow Creek agency under date of the 12tb, says that a runner from Sitting Bull's camp was here a few days ago with news from Sitting Bull. "He was visiting all the Sioux tribes on the river with a secret message. What it was is net known yet. The but is now at Santee agen cy. Aside from his message he reported that Sitting Bull wished his friends to know that he was a buck and would always be a buck that the great father had made wo men of his friends by taking away from them their arms and ponies. Sitting Bull, however, did not blame tbe great father, because lie knew they would go and help him if there was trouble. A week ago last Sunday a letter signed by Ked Cloud and fifteen chiefs was received by the Crow Creek Indians. It was seut out to all the agency Indians of the Sioux. It was read to them in council by interpreter.Leclaire, and was an appeal to them to remember that they belonged to the Sioux nation, and that they must act as one people when they get into trouble with the whites. The letter was received with aboriginal applause and a feast." Tbe writer says that on tha 11th he was at Kcd Cloud agency, and that the Iudians there do not waut to see the Stanley com mission. They sny that the great father told them last tall that they were to go this spring-wherever they wanted to on their reservation, and they are going. They will not come to the Missouri. Tliev are now within sixty miles, and that is nearer than they ever will comc atjuin. They wish to settle on White Clay creek, twenty miles from camp Sheridan, one hundred and fortv miles from Sidney, on tbe Union Pacific railroad, and two hundred and fifty miles from the Missouri. They are unanimously for that site. They answer the transporta tion argument by saying they will never do their own hauling, the same as tbe Fort Totten Indlaos in northern Dakota are doing. They will have seventy-five wagons and teams that were given them last fall. The commissioners' advice and instructions will do no good. The Red Cloud Indians are well armed, with plenty of ammunition and ponies. Tbe chiefs say they will get money it' they return to White Clay creek. It is supposed they mean that the ranchmen and others will pay them. There arc probably ten thousand jx a'cs in Red Cloud's camp. From Cheyenne agency to Spotted Tail agency, there are twenty thousand Sioux Indians on this river, within two hundred and fifty miles. At this agency and Brule sgency there are six hundred and fifteen ritles, principally Winchesters, by actual count, and about that many warriors. These are not amiable. There are six hundred soldiers distributed between Fort Sully and Spotted Tail, at six posts, out of supporting distance. Army officers well informed as to Red Cloud and his Indians tell me that it would be a great mistake to take them away from the Missouri river, as their real object is getting into the interior Is to keep up communication with the hos tiles of th« north. The same correspondent gives an ac count ol the council of the Stanley commis sion with the Red Cloud Indians. Mr. Ilayt first addressed a lew pleasant words to Red Cloud and his warriors, and Red Cloud responded. He spoke for them all, and what he had to say was all they had to say. He wanted to go to White Clay creek, over 200 miles from the Missouri. He had looked the ground over recently, and was Hawortb, one of tbe commissioners, and former agent for tbe ICiowas and Coman ancbes, said Red Cloud had made a good speech, and that he was right. That unex pected declaration brought down the Indian house. Ilaworth surrendered on sight. The Rev. Sir. Riggs, tbe third commissioner, said be had been with them as long as he could remember, and still loved them. lie spoke in Sioux, and explained that he was appointed on the commission because he could talk their language, and there would be no misunderstanding on account of In terprotatioD. The council was short, and all one-Hided. Dr. Irwin, I lie agent, boldly couimols llie Imlinn* to go WCKI, ttml hnb in slstcd on his advice in tlio Inco of cnulnuy Instructions from Washington. Spotted Tail Is equally deteriulucd, and ssys ho will barn down the agency hulldlnps If his In tended move from the Missouri Is hindered. Tho commission left to-day with an Indian escort for the Interior. They will be gone twenty days or more. Commissioner Ilayt Is opposed to the movement west, and Is disappointed. VE6ETINE FOR DROPSY.

STEVKXS Dear Sir —Having suffered from a breaking out of Cankerous Smvs for more than live years, caused by an aecident of a fractured bono, which fracture ran into a runningsore, and having used every thing 1 could think of and nothing helped me, until I had taken six bottles of your valuable medicine which Mr. Miller, the apothecary, rec ommended very highly. The sixth bottle'cured me. and all 1 can say, is that 1 owe my health to your valuable Vegetine. Your most obedient servant, ALBKUT VOX llOKDKU. It is unnecessary far nic to enumerate the diseases for which the Vegetine should be used. I know of no disease which will not admit of its use, wiih good results. Almost innumerable complaints arc caused by poisonous secretions in the blood, which can be entirely expelled from the system by the use of the Vegetine. When the blood is perfectly cleansed, the disease rap idly yields all nains cease hcallhy action is promptly restored, and the patient is cured. VEGETINE Cured Me When the DOCTORS FAILED.

That point was Repairing done under the personal supervision fixed. The great father had promised him o^Mv-mei-son. who lias given years to the his selection, and he produced a pamphlet of the Union Pacific railroad containing the president's words to that effect. He wanted 500 cows, also oxen, wagons, farms, houses, and school-houses. He was contented with their supplies, and believed they got all the great father sent them. He wanted a Ca tholic priest, and hoped this commission would not forget it. Red Cloud's firm po' sltion was applauded by the other chiefs. The commission saw at once that Red Cloud was determined to go whither be choose, and it was apparent their mission was failure as far as an accessible site to tbe Missouri river was concerned. Gen. Stan ley followed Red Cloud. He called atten tion to the fact that tbe cost of transporta tion of their gifts from the great father would come out of their supplies.
