Wo give below an extended extract from
,c the letter of Lieutenant Whitman, Third
U. S. Cavalry, whose command occupied
_.. Camp (irant at the time of the butchery.
D After describing at length the manner in
| B which the Indians, to the number of 500,
,r had been gathered at the camp, their md
d dustry and good behavior, the pledges
made by the government of protection,
Lieutenant Whitman says :
The ranchmen in this vicinity were friend
«. ly and kind to them, and felt perfectly
secure, and had agreed with me to employ
= them at a fair rate of pay to harvest their
barley. The Indians seem to have lost
. their characteristic anxiety to purchase ain
e munition, and had, in many instances, sold
* their best bown and arrows. T made fix
-0 qnent visits to their camp, and if any were
t absent front count, made it my business to
J know why.
Such was the condition of tilings up to
1 the morning of the 30th of April. They ',
had so won ou me, that from my first idea
I of treating them justly and honestly as an
| officer of the army, I had come to feel a }
strong personal interest in helping to show ,
.. them the way to a higher civilization. I ,
had come to feel respect for men, who, |
ignorant and naked, were still ashamed to j
lie or steal, and for women who would j
work cheerfully like slaves to clothe them- (
• selves and children, but, untaught, held j
i tlieir virtue above price. Aware of the 1
lies and hints industriously circulated by i
. the puerile press of the Territory, I was
content to knoic I had positive proof that t
they were so. :
1 had ceased to have any fears of their \
leaving here, and only dreaded for them r
that they might at any time be ordered to \
(Jo so. They frequently expressed anxiety j
to hear from the Ueneral, that they might ,
have confidence to build for themselves i;
: better houses, but would always say, "You t
know what we want, and if you can't sec c
him you can write and do for us what you h
can.'' It is possible that during this time 'J
individual' from here had visited other j|
bands, but that any number had ever 0
been out to assist in any marauding expe- ti
dition I know is false. a
On the morning of April .10 1 was at
breakfast at 7:110 o'clock, when a dispatch k
was brought to me by a sergeant of com- a
pany P, Twenty-first infantry, from Cap
tain Perm, commanding Camp Lowell, in
forming me that a large party had left Tuc
son on the 28th, with the avowed purpose
of killing all the Indians at this post. I im
mediately sent the two interpreters, mount
ed, to tile Indian ennrp, with orders to tell
tlie chiefs the exact state of things, and for
them to bring their entire party _____ the
post. As I had .no cavalry, and but about *
tifty infantry, (all recruits) and no other of- b
ficer, 1 could not leave the post to go their tl
defence. My messengers returned in about ol
an hour, with intelligence that they »,
Their camp was burning and the ground tt
strewed with tlieir dead and mutilated wc
men and children. I immediately mounted
a party of about twenty soldiers and citi- vi
-ens, and sent them with the post surgeon, cc
with a wagon, to bring in the wounded, if c .
any could be found. The party returned
late in the evening, having found no wound
ed, and without being able to communicate a
with any of the survivors. Early the next T
morning I took a similar party with spades fo
and shovels, and wejit out and buried all
the dead, in and immediately about the
cam]). 1 had the day before olfered the in- a
terpreters, or any one who could do so,
$100 to go to the mountains and commtmi- It
cute with them, and convince them that no c .
officer or soldier of the United States gov
ernment liad boon concerned in the vile c _f
transaction, and failing in this, 1 'thought P>
the act of caring for their dead would be an th
evidence to them of our at least, lc
nnd the conjecture proved correct; for ,•
while at work many ef them came to the
spot and indulged in tlieir P*

That evening they began tn come in from fri
all directions, singly and in small parties, so jjjj
changed in forty-eight hours as to be hardly „
recognizable, during which timu they had *'
neither eaten nor slept. Many of the men, "'
whose families had all been killed, when 1 B
spoke to them, and expressed sympathy for fo
them, were obliged to tuni away, unable to
speak, and too proud to show their grief. a "
'ihe women whose children had been killed tn
or stolen were convulsed with grief, and s u
looked to me appealhigly, as though I was in
their last hope on earth. Children who two a
<_y_ before had been full of fun and frolic „
kept at a distance,.expressing wondering
horror. I did what I could ; 1 fed them, tl{
and talked to them, and listened patiently 111
to their accounts. I sent horses into the th
mountains to br'mg in two badly-wounded m]
women, one shot tlirough the left lung and v
one with an arm ghattcrcd....These were
attended to, and' are doing well, and will of
recover. Their camp was surioimiled and Ihi
attacked at daybreak. So sudden and un- „,,
expected was it, that no one was awake to ~'
give the alarm, and I found quite a number
of tei
beside their bundles of hay wliich they had Ha
collected to bring in on that morning. The Nt
wounded who were unable to get away had fo,
while some were slwt fidl of arrows after Wl
having been mortally wounded by gunshot. as
The bodies were all stripped. Of the whole W
number buried, one was an old man and
one was a well-grown boy—all the rest

ber killed and in.is.sing, about 125, eight a "
only wore men. It has been said that the *"
men were not then I —they were all there, trt
Oa the 2Sth we counted 12. men, a small p 0
number being absent from mess-call, all of!
whom have since been in. 1 have spe.it a| K.
good deal of f'yne with them since the affair, i • Nt
and have been astonished at their continued i lis
unshaken faith in me, and their perfectly | thi
a clear understanding of their misfortune.

lee One of the chiefs said: "I no longer want
to live; my women and children have been
killed before my face, and I have been un
able to defend them. Most Indians in my
Uf! place would take a knife and cut his throat,
but I it-ill lire to show these people that all
they have done, and all they <_n do, shall
eld not make me break faith with you so long
as you will stand by us and defend us in a
language wo know nothing of to a great
Oovenior Wta never have nor never shall
."J see." About their captives they say:
iwi "Get them back for us ; our little boys
ied will grow up slaves, and our girls, as soon
pj. # as they are lai-ge enough, will be diseased
i„ prostitutes to get money fo*; whoever owns
them. Our women work hard, and are
M i good women, and they and our children
in- have no diseases. Our dead you cannot
;es bring back to life, but those that are liviiig
„ we gave to you, and we look to you, who
' can write and talk and have soldiers, to get
them back." I will assure you it is no
d* easy task to convince them of my /.Cal
ly when they see so little being done.
>y I have pledged my word fo them that I
* never would rest easily, da}' or night, until
et they should have justice, and just now I
i" woidd as soon leave the army as to be or
ld dered away from them, or to be obliged to
c- order them away from here. But you well
r e know the difficulties in the way. You ,
to know that parties who would eiigage in
murder like this could and would (and have 1
to already) make statements and multiply afti
■y davits without end in their justification. I •
* know you will use your influence on the I
111 right side. I believe, with them, this may
fl be made either a means of making good .
»' citiz.ens of them and their children, or drive J
1 them out to a hopeless war of extcrmina- !
>• tion. They ask to be allowed to live here '
" in their okl homes, where nature supplies
(l nearly all their wants ; Ihey ask for a fair t
'■ and impartial trial of their faith, and they i
d ask that all their captive children living may 1
c be returned to them. Is their demand un- .
y reasonable ? ' ,

justice, and they are driven away desperate

0 hardly command men to fire on them; and fa
V if I fail to do for them now everything in 'I
5 my power, I should expect it to be remem- p

History of the AA'ar in Europe. a
The National Publishing company of
. Philadelphia has just issued a very valua- b
* ble history of the late war between Ger
* many and France, from the pen of one of * c
* our most popular writers, Mr. James I), b
McCabe, Jr. d*
In a large volume of 800 octavo pages, j*
the author tells a wonderful story—all the g
stranger because of its truth. He tells of
battles which have shaken EWope to its Q
centre, and the consequences of which, 31
even we of the AVestern world, m feel;
of patriotism, heroism, military skill and *
statesmanship, never surpassed in history. ,j,
The author writes with the weight and
force of truth, and the great merits of his t
book are its reliability and strict imparti- \\.
ality. • bt
The book is complete in every particular. *f
It describes the causes of the war, and the a
events which preceded it; 'the opening ,[„
campaign, and the first reverses of the
French ; the eflect of these reverses upon
the French people; the frantic effort to
rescue the beaten army, and the terrible
disaster of Sedan ; the capture of the Em- **'
peror Napoleon, and an entire army; the ,
revolution in Paris; the rise and formation
of the Republic; the llight of the Empress a
from Paris; the siege and surrender of
Strasbourg and the frontier fortresses of OT
France; the triumphal advance of the
German armies to Paris; the efforts of
Bazaine to escape from Metz, and the
final surrender of his army ; the investment ■
aud siege of Paris; the detailed history of
this great siege ; its plans, sorties, battles, lai
successes and failures ; the course of events an
in the beleagured city, given in the form of
a full diary of the events of the siege ; the Ik
campaigns on the Ixiirc, and in other por- a (
tions of Franco; the peace negotiations,
the surrender of Paris, and the treaty ; " a "
the naval history of the war; the diplo
matic history on both the Germain and lig
French sides; the history of the formation ro*
of the great German Empire; the proclaim
| ing of King William, Emperor, and the , rl
realization of German unity; the events of in
I the civil war and second siege of Paris, its
terrible scenes of bloodshed and vandalism, pli
with a minuteness, graphicness and bril- Htc
liancy, which leaves nothing to be desired.
No intelligent person can afford to be unin- ,
formed as to these events which have left so JJL
deep an impression on the world's his- i
tory, and few will fail to read this splendid Si
work ; or, having road it,' to endorse it bh
an the iShtiuhril American History of the wa
lv this age of sensational literature, we rei
cannot too highly commend this brilliant !?ai
and thoughtful narrative to our readers. • t
The book is handsomely bound, and illus- net
trated with one hundred and fifty maps, ter
portraitH, battle scenes, and views of the ne<
i principal Idealities connected with the war. j

nd A Fellote-Feeling— These Ihtll Times.—
<t, We were suddenly'overcome with a feeling
eh of dullness, on reading the morning papers,
0 f to find them filled with this abundant com
modity. Except the meeting of the order of
Ku-Klux, presided over by the Grand Cy
clops of the State, there is nothing to inter
est the readers of a daily paper now going
on in the city. Revenue officials are
• making themselves particularly annoying to
many of our druggists and dealers in
"goodies " who, either from ignorance or a
re wish to ''turn an honest penny" by beating
I iii.'le ISamuel out of what is due him, have
|(r neglected to stamp certain articles in the
B bill and proceedings mentioned. Our sym
pathy for them almost induces us to rebel,
0 and kick up a little muss, because of the
stamp act. We would do it, too, but then
1, you know the "march of the boys in grey"
*t had something to do with the necessity for
this law, and as we "didn't march good,"
we must be pardoned for holding others re
rr sponsible for the present laws providing for
n the payment of the public debt.
Suicides have become so disgusting it is
', almost impossible to persuade "the girls"
i- to renew their fondness for the sport. We '
are heartily glad of their unpopularity, al- '
c though we take to an "item" like "a sick
t kitten to a hot brick." Besides that, to
secure the facts concerning them, it is ren
dered necessary for one to be seen where J
- "we hadn't ought to go," (we don't like the J
- phrase) and as we prefer sins of omission to ,
those of commission, wfi rejoice in the pres
. cut suicide dullness.
Few people are disposed to get married '
j- just now, while the fewest possible number '
indulge in billiards. We can't see why ;
"this is tins," as ''Redford & Ives" hate '
* positively forbidden whistling, and keep an '
■ establishment where gentlemen can indulge
i tlieir scientific attainments in angul. - mat- 1
ters until they get heated and then, by a .
t simple turn of tlie heel, front a stand blos
[ soming as the rose, bede-ked with oranges, i
pine-apples, lemons, hard "biled" eggs, j
sandwiches, mint juleps, and all "sich like.
(How will this do, George, for another of
' those just imported from the snow-clatl
1 hills of some foreign clime, done up in a i
huge bowl, and straws numbered with each
■ gentleman connected with the Journal T)
Say, old boy, do so again, we promise not
' to be angry ! •
Horses occasionally run away, but it is o
because they arc not kind, good, dear little d
j horses like those of ourcity railway. You _
never see them kicking up the deuce, run- s
ning away and smashing things up general- g
ly. They do the work prepare- for them \
like clever horses, and we imagine when r
dewy eve breaks in upon old Sol's reign [
and bids him depart, they are so well satis- t
fled that they have performed their part and
earned their food that they join with one
accord in singing that good old song,
"Walk along John, the piper's son,
Ain't you mighty glad your day's work is done »" V
Besides their usual good natures they v
have a weakness for not running away. n
The Board of Health has reported the •*
condition of the streets better than for s
years. We were getting some "items" on s
them which did not agree with their report, °
but recognizing the "powers that be," we 1(
desire to make no issue with them about the s
streets, inasmuch as the issue from tlie y
streets themselves, finding its way into the 8
nostrils of passers-by, will convince the
people tliat the Board of Health neither h
sees or smells. Their noses need cleansing, °
and we appoint the scavengers to do the fl
job. tl
The City Council won't meet again for c
some time, and Ben Scott will have to wait
for "honest employment." In the mean- T
time he caii go around with liis Democratic A
friends, "seeking whomsoever he may eat lr
I up." provided he can find a good fat Re- V
publican. A former sheriff, under military '
rule, donble-jomted and kidney covered, ? (
would be a good subject for Ben to digest. lo
We shan't give his name though, as it w
might create a "howl" that would frighten ni
Ben from his ogre appetite. JJ
The hotels are ."driving" a brisk busi- "'
ness, but it is in driving their servants to
the Springs in search of honest employ
ment. Tlie merchants are selling off at
and below cost, to make room for fall
stock. Their clerks have time to cast bc
witcliing smiles at the young ladies who
venture, with thin sole shoes, upon the 00
scorching pavements. Mechanics and man
ufacture™ generally, aro "busy doing no- ar
thing," whiie the hackmeii, so hurried by
the press of business, are breaking their
poles and driving the splinters into the sto
machs of other people's horses. They
ought to know food once digested is not
good for horses. iy,,
Of the newspapers, we can say but little, to'
as we are afraid to speak against our "bread de
and meat." The Dispatch is flourishing in lia
spite of the envy of its neighbors, and likes
a joke "occasionally" as well as it does so .
"broiled chicken and com." and an occa- co
sional bath in "Falling Spring."
The Whig is still grumbling over the de- ,
feat of its pet railroad scheme, and in a mo
ment of passion has invented a "man trap" }. e -
--to cripple it* own readers and admirers. ,
The Enquirer is getting _k_g pretty "*
well, we believe—sharpening its knives and »,
filing its teeth for tho Fall "sausage-mak- ]■
ing" of Republicans. It has recently grown
so nroud as to move down on M_m street,
and bought a new sign. Oj
>\'e are flourishing like the green bay tree, '".'
adding to our popularity and subscription ,
Democrats from the error '.
of their way, and strengthening the Repub- * 01
lican party over the State. We have plen
ty work to do, and do it with a good will, ad
because when Saturday night comes, we H<
are paid off, and enabled to enjoy ourselves
'till work day comes again v which seems to mt
stick to us, m spite of our efforts to get mi
away, like "blister plaster." mi
A Young "■Steamer" ''Chartered" for W
the igfit.—l,ast night, a young man, whose ati
coppers contained a heavy head of steam, tin
was about to explode his boiler, ou Bank tin
street, when Officer Charters put in an ap- ga
pearance ami proposed to open the safety- na
_■_-. e ii ,wt * l «pe> 'Jhe young gentleman en

the determination to make him clear the rii
track. In spite of the whistle of alarm the lee
officer stood his' ground and succeeded in
securing the belligerent, but only after of
tying him with strong ropes. cart hit
he conveyed the youug man to the station- Sti
house, where he remained until he was pu
tried by Justice Crutchtield (not ours), who be
required him to pay a fine of $2.50 and hu

Desjierate Determination to Save tlie Old
u,a Dominion.— Upon reading the recent tele
ner grams received in this city from New York,
announcing the feeling of indignation against

to tion, composed of German citizens, having
j n reorganized a short time since under highly
a propitious circumstances, assembled last
lg evening at Schott's Monticello Hall, where
•c tn ." ' ,ad a pleasant social reunion,
ie M r ' "• Koppel introduced the new presi

i briefly thanking tho association for the

B Katerlinus, who also made an appropriate
i> speech in German. .Speeches were also
, r made by Messrs. Schridowitz, Lovenstein,
ii and others.
.. Tho Virginia Singing Society and the
r German Mannaerchor each sang their best
music, and united in singing "The Watch

0 Revenue Violations.—J amen W. Word,
_ who was arrested on Wednesday last, <
B charged with dealing in contraband tobacco, .
had a hearing this morning before U. S. i
Commissioner J. C. Lynham, who reserved 1
_ his decision in the case until next Monday, i
A number of seizures were made vester
j day by the revenue officers, confinedppri-t
r cipally to druggists' and confectioners. |
Among the latter, were found jellies, mus- i
tards, and other condiments, without the 1
necessary stamps. ]

Temple of Honor—We hear that a new
lodge of the Templars of Honor :s to be es
tablished on Church Hill. They take a life
pledge not to use intoxicating liquors, and J
i their initiatory ceremonies are said to be in
' keeping with the solemnity of the vow.
' 'Ihe Undine Temple will inaugurate a )
course of lectures on general subjects this '
winter, and expect to induce Gough, Josh T
' Billings, and other popular lecturers, to '
come to Richmond. _ J

• Dangerous Hole in the Sidetvalk.— There '
is a dangerous hole in the sidewalk on Vir- v
giuia street, between Cary and the Danville '
depot, which needs attention. Yesterday •>
morning a lady was passing along that r
street, and without noticing the place,
stepped' into the hole, and was considerably
bruised and jarred. The neglect on the v
j part of those whose duty it is to attend to f.
i the streets and sidewalks, will yet result in
' the city having to pay heavy damages.

Accident—Leg Broken.— Mr. John J. c
Prosser, of this city, a brother of the t
weighmanter of the second market, met
with a very serious accident yesterday
morning. He had recently purchased a !
tine young horse, and not needing him for a
short time, put him in Mr. Chcsterman's
stable. On going to the stable to take him
out, the horse gave him a kick on the left b
leg, just below the knee, which produced a $
serious fracture. Drs. Vaiden and Watson ■
were called in, and rendered the necessary °
surgical aid. * c
'I his is the second time Mr. Prosser has r.
had an accident of this kind; for it was »
only a few months ago that his right leg
was fractured. We are pleased to learii P
that he is doing tt» well to-day as could be
expected. v
Captured and Sent Back.— William
Thompson, a sailor, belonging to the Ger
man bark "Marathon," who deserted his ,
vessel a few days ago, was arrested yester- .'
day on board the schooner "Oliver Jamie ' ■
son," by detective Henry Dabney, and ',\
locked up in the first station-house. He Z.
was brought before Justice AVTiite this *
morning, who ordered him to be turned ,
over to Captain Donnell of the "Mara- f
thon." ".
Where Is He! • th
"AVhere, oli where is good old Daniel ? n
Where, oh where is good old Daniel? '*
AVhere, oh where is good old Daniel ? l_i

He only viewed it about the time of his
congratulations to the President. q
He thinks he has now a chance of getting o,
another peep iv the fall. or

The Ixite Murder. —Several officers of *
the law of Henrico county visited Tiickahoe £
township to view the place of the late mm- sti
der of the colored man Johnson by Wil
County Jail. —The county jail is at pre- »t
sent quite full, there being 18 prisoners "
confined upon different charges. _!'
Nol Yet Ended. —The recent prize fight ~
has not yet ceased to furnish matter for in
vestigation by the authorities. Philip
Hinchman, recently arrested in Norfolk,
as an accessory to the late prize fight. Was _j,
on Tuesday last brought before Judge -t
Minor on a writ of habeas corpus and bailed _
for his appearance in the sum of $1,000. J"'
Another Murder Brought to LigM.—The ni
Commonwealth's officers'are busily engaged
investigating another murder committed in
Henrico some time since. The names of
the parties and circumstances are snrpressd mi
for prudential reasons. ml

Republican Meeting—The People De- f°
maiiding their Rights.— The county com- ab
inittee of tlie Republican party of Henrico, '
met last Saturday at the court-house. ,Maj. £S
Samuel L. Amiable was called to the chair, tin
While harmony prevailed, a fixed detormin- b ''
ation was visible, resulting in resolutions to _
the effect that the county was entitled to 1
the selectton of one Senator and two dele
gates to the next legislature. W. J. An- J
nable, George M. Fleck and Joseph Rodg- 7Z
ers were appointed a committee to meet j
the City Central committee of Richmond, ph
Saturday next, for the purpose of confer- Dii
ring as to the course to be pursued in se
lecting-candidates. jjj
The county is fully awake to the attempt —
of disorganize**- to divide the party. These ~>
hideous monsters seem at work all over the da:
State, ready to sap the life-blood of Re
publicanism. Their traitorous work must
be crushed in the bud, and. the actors (
hurled into the background until they fJ"
are taught the duties of the hour. fro
