A man answer ing to the description of Hanson passed Friday night at a liouae near Springfield and arose early in the morning and 'left without any breakfast. He was clad in a rait of black and had on a pair of new boots. Baker trailed him several mile*, but lost the trade and had to give up the chase. The printed description of Hanson ha* been translated, by order of Msjor Lightner, into Sioux, and several copies at Santee agency. A squad of an now out searching for him.

A considerable portion of the Pe ninah'* cargo wa* pat off on the river bank before the Mead came to her rescue. These good* win loaded apon the Mead and brought to Yankton and are Included in tbe sale for tbe relief of tbe parties claiming salvage. This also is undoubtedly in strict compliance with the law, else it would not have been done, bat,it does not strike tbe purely common sense observer as being Strictly just. As an illustration we cits the case of A. F. Wood. His bousebciJ furni ture was shipped from here on the Peni nab, Ha destination being Lesd City, After tbe Peninab was snagged it was placed wbere the Mead picked it up and brought to Yankton. It has all been sold and Mr. Wood is so much out, while tbe steam boat company pockets bis loss. The fact that both tbe Peninab and Mead were working under the same management and for tbe same owners renders the c»se still more aggravating. Last Saturday evening, in tbe progress of tbe admiralty sale of tbe Peninah's csrgo, a box was reached which bore no marks in dicating the character of its contents. It was a strong box. made of inch and a half board*, dove-tailed and fastened with screws. It bad been tumbled around,stooa upon and eat upon. As its turn came to be sold it wa* necessary that its contents should be known, accordingly an employe set to work with a hatchet to remove the lop. He cut, slashed and pounded with tbe energy of a baggage smasher, and when the top bad been knocked to pieces and tbe content* disclosed there wss an involuntary backing off by the auctioneer, officers and bidders. A great many who bad been very much Interested in tbe sale suddenly re membered that they had Important bueiaesa up town, and Went without standing upon tbe order oi their going. The auctioneer tbe attorney and tbe marshal burriedlv went behind the warehouse to have a pri vate talk draymen who were waiting for a job to haul off purchased packages, whipped up their horses, and left on a jump with empty wagons everybody seemed to have lost all interest in the aubaequent proceed ings, and scattered. The box contained dynamite—enough, if tbe smasher'* hatchet had come in contact with it, to have antic ipated Mother Fritcbie'* prophecy, so far ss tne people of Yankton are concerned, by about two years, Tbe contents of the box remain unsold, and tbe marshal if worried to know what be is going to do with it.

Minneapolis, cecal ful puranit the Prett Minn., Oct. 7,1870.—lb and JDakotaian.—I feel ashamed to notice or attempt to reply to a personal attack, such as appeared in the October 2d number of your daily, especially since the writer has not the manhood to write over his own signature. But I trust 1 have many very true and warm friends in Yank ton and elsewhere In the territory, whose 'good opinion I hope still to retain, and hence my excuse for this. It seems very strange that all those who go to the trouble of writing me up should not have the courage to let the public know who they are, and especially since they show such tenacity to have their little say appear in print, even going so far in one instance, I am told, as to pay for their production at circular rates, and even then the paper publishing it had too much re gard for respectability to publish it-in its regular issue, but sent it out in the form of an extra. I do not vouch for the truthful ness of this statement, as it came to me in directly, but the manner in which it ap peared has something of that look about it. refer to the article published by the Fargo Times of August 16th last. It would look and show far more evidence of intend ed truthfulness if Dessau Ilea (bhtlliw sjets me. Does the writer Intend to use the word dessoller—to unmask or desoler—to lay waste or desale—un«alted. His cow ardly nom de plume is too indefinite to be at all expressive), had quoted from my let ters to the department or elsewhere any ex pressions that betrayed the least spirit of a personal character or malice. All that I have ever said has been over my own signature, and I have nothing to take back except should it be shown to me conclu sively that I have made a mistatement.then I shall be the first to acknowledge it, and only he too glad to do so. This is not said ith any sanctimonons air, and I think all who kno.w me will nctt charge me with pos sessing a great amount of that element. The article of August 30th, referred to by your correspondent, contained but a few words of my own, but was mostly a copy of a letter of Capt. Bennett, commander at Ft. Sisae ton, showing how others looked u|on the treatment of those Indians, as well ai my self. The townsite of Richmond I had in my mind for years, and I never had for a mo ment an Idea of making a location at Scat tered Goose's camp, or any other point on the James river than Richmond. The con versation reported as occurring at Water town neverrdid .occur, with me or any one interested #iifh me in the least. -All tbe talk about my virit to the Siswton agency is utterly false. Every word I said to an Indian when there, was to impress upon their minds the importance of their doing no harm to any one, and to persuade them out of the idea of a reservation but to accept their homes and outside of that, say every alternate one quarter sec'ion, if ili. could make such arrangements with tbe government, to be held as their own, indi vidually, as they settled and improved llie same, and has been done by their red breth ren at Flandreau and elsewhere. This I convinced' them was their only security for a permanent home, feeling, as I did, that if they did get a reservation set apart for them, they could hardly' get settled before some plan could be cooked np to have them removed in keeplog with the past history of similar cases, which could not be done if they set tled as individuals and become citizens like other people. 1 had in view, in this coun cil, equal and exact justice to all parties in tervstetf, tile whites as well as the Indians, for I saw the injustice and hardships of forcing the white* away from their homes as well a* the Indians, and this would be in harmony with article 5'h of the treaty.of March 17th 1866 and not in violation of the military order issued to them at Ft. Rice after the cessation of hostilities growing out of the Iadiao troubles 'of 1802, during which tin^e thepe Indiana were our true al lies, fighting our'tattles for ns, and' ever have besa our friends in peace and The iaaiapating raferenoe to Kansas is far fetched.' The colored children of Topeka are now attending the public schools there like the white children,. after longAnd desperate struggle to see justice done, simi lat.*to thft i^Jbrt, aa are. figfatiag tbe effo (tafafrbaii^! ^ahaivliiave teen, bead. Dti Insinuation ss to sqaaws Is top •Illy to notice. But I will say this, that I have bad about a* much association with Indians a* most say oneol my ago bull bave never yet laid my bands on a tquaw" nor have I ever wronged an Iudlau In word, act or deed. Can D. any tbi* much? My observation has been, that thoso who have wronged tbern the mo*t are the lirat and the worst to do tbum au Injustice. 1 still sky that not a member of D. Q's band over mo lested a government surveyor or run oil'the mail carrier's horses, aud I deny emphatic ally that one of them murdered Mr. John son or were within fifty miles of bitu the time of his death. Mow I chHlle»K« l. to give one name or ungcntlemanly slur 1 used personally towards the residents or any one person In tbe James river valley, and no man has ever beard me use luuguaKe "9 D. has used in hi* attack ou me, but have in every instance taken the position that the injustice of driving the Indians from their home* reflected right back upon the gov eminent, and have written tSB wSiii him thaVthcra is not to my Icnowledae, single white farmer settler now residing in Dakota that was within its limits when I entered" the" territory twenty-two years ago, and I isened the first pocket map of Dakota, tx JS 4**?, '"a!" of the information tion of the present' towii of.

I am pretty well ac quainted with the geography of that country and the history of Scattered Goose's band, if I never was exactly at hie preeaat camp, I never said 1 bad a persoaal ialerview as uianv and us strong letters to the department in bthtilf of tbe settlers as I bave (or the Iudiiins, con tending that any mao who make* the first improvemeul on what hebelects as bis home whether It be a white, red or black tuiu, shouU be sacredly protected, aud I believe this was the evidently intended design of the treaty referred to and several oth er treaties made with other bitnds of tbe Sioux, this poiicv is still further indicated In section 2,070 of tho revised statutes of tbe Uuited States, and I can not see bow there cau be any dodging the point that these Indians are not fully entitled to their homes under their treaty Lacked by the Oth article ot tbe constitution of the United Stutes, and if tbey contend lor them even to the carrying their case to the courts they must certainly bold thein. Ta"y have uever ceded these lands nor have tbese lands been ceded by any other Indians nor can tbey be under the section ol tbe revised statutes referred to, hence tbeir only show for their rights is under the treaty referred to, wbicb is the supreme law of the Isnd, under tbe said article Qlh ot the United States Btututes, I know too well the hardships of tbe pioneer to do an act to add oue uritimooal trial, but I cannot allow myself t» forget that tbese Indiaus possess the same feeling, loye of honor, and as strong a sense of jus tice, as myself, and that the man who in sists tn uepriving him of it, is not tiding in lbe spirit of doiug as he would likr oth ers to do to htm. An Iodian is a mxn the same as I, and the great fault of the gov ernment is lhti it trua'.s him like babe, or aa was about to say more like a dog. Some day I expect to visit this ctiiu-^ed point ou the James, and wl.en 1 ii I i-lmll go with no fear of being iuliuiklnteiJ. by »ny threats made by D—or by the display ui Colt's revolver as was attimpted by the man 1 Ihm ipiiun suspect is the rual Di.-sui Iit. Now Mr. Editor please allow uiu to mu gesta correction due from you which is in regard to the mill dam at Bi Saud lake. 1 nev«r had a thing to do with the prosecu tion of that enterprise, so creditable to the persen who did construct it. The worthy man who did erect that dam was a Mr. Spenser of Fairfield, on the Sioux, aliuont a neighbor to you. The article going the rounds of the papers, emanated from the Press and Dakotaian and. was evidently food for those so deairious of prejudicing the public mind against me. There area few that are hurt from my eflorts to see justice done to these deserving Indians who iiuve a strong claim upon us, lor protection, in view of their past services in our behalf in time of trouble. Outside of tlietn I have no fears of my unpopularity on the Jaints, and 1 have faith to believe that many even in the Oak Wood Settlement, in their hearts, re spect my tflbrl and would like to acknowl edge the justice of it. I call to uiind ijuite a number of families, of whom 1 entertain the highest respect for the kind and hospi table ircuuneiu received from them. Respectfully Yours, B. M. CO I to C/ 1 OB CO =& rn 9?
