AGENT M'LAUOHLIN'S EEPOET, The commission of Indian affairs has received from Indian Agent McLaugh lin, a report of the fight between tho Indian police and the followers of Sit ting Bull, on the 15th instant, when that chief was captured. The report does not differ materially from that already printed. The agent speaks in the very highest terms of the judgment and brav ery of the Indian police, and strongly urges that a generous allowance be made for the families of those killed. Besides the Indian police there were four volun teers, Gray Eagle, Spotted Thunder, Otter Robe and Young Eagle, who par ticipated in the light, rendering good service and deserving recognition. hi.anchaud's resolution. The preamble of the resolution intro duced in congress today by Representa tive Blanchard, for an investigation into the killing of Sitting Bull, recites that the killing "appears to have been ac complished under circumstances recog nized neither by the laws of war nor those of peace;" and the resolution directs the committee to investigate whether a state of war existed which justified his summary taking off, and if not, what justification there was for his death at the hands of Indian police in the employ of the government."

Washington, Dec. 22.—1n nn extended talk about the development of trotters, Senator Stanford is quoted as saying: "I have not yet fully decided what mem ber of my stud I shall select to take the place of Flectioneer. I have several good stallions of the same blood, such as Electricity, Palo Alto and Azmoor. I shall give Palo Alto a sood opportunity in the stud. Electricity would, I flunk, have trotted very low down, but he suffered an injury to his leg and I had to throw him out of train ing. The same difficulty now presents | itself as when I purchased Electioneer, in that I must replenish my stock with j mares of different blood. I shall stick I to my believing that thereby the best re sults can be produced. I must breed on and on. No backward step must be liken, but whether in my lifetime I shall breed a horse that can trot a mile in two minutes is a problem that I am not capable of solving. I shall endeavor to do sof and in so doing I shall certainly not retrogardr in the science of breod ing." THE RED MESSIAH. ANOTHER ACCOUNT OF THE IN DIAN CHRIST. A Scout Detailed by General Gibbon Visits the Impostor in Nevada-His Doctrine Purely a Gospel of Peace. Portland, Ore., Dee. 22. —A. I. Chap man, a well-known Indian scout, re turned here from Nevada, where he went iv November for the purpose of interviewing the so-called Messiah, in ' obedience to orders, from General Gib- I bon. He first went to Walker's lake, in Nevada, and talked with the I'iutea, who told him the Messiah had been receiv ing calls from all the tribes in the west. Chapman found the Messiah at the west fork of the Walker river, in Ne vada. Speaking of his interview, Chap man said: "The Messiah, Quoitzow, as he gives his name, is a full-blooded Piute Indian, and has always been peacefully disposed. He spoke freely of his call to preach. His lirst experience with the Almighty ,»m ono »kt«roooii while liuut'iUHt- MM£i | ing a noise he started to learn its cause, when he was thrown to the ground from some unknown cause. He was then taken to heaven, and there saw all the whites and Indians that have lived and died upon earth. He was afterwards brougnt back to earth to the same spot where he had fallen dead. God told him he had been looking for a mortal whom he could entrust with the mission of reforming the world, and bad decided on Quoitzow. Having been informed of his mission, he set out to perform it. He taught the Indians that tbVy should work and avoid fighting, except in self-defence. Last summer the Indians told him that ■unless it rained soon the crops would fail. He told them to go home, and in three days an abundance of rain fell. Quoitzow got hi 9 ideas from the religious family with whom he had lived." 1 hapman thinks Quoitzow is only in directly to blame for the uprising, and that his doctrine imbued the Indians with a more independent spirit to resist their wrongs.

Jvliu Pope Hennessy Elected to Parliament His Majority EstimatedVt F'yoni 500 to 1000. Priest* Were Prominent at the Polls In fluencing Voters—Several Minor Disturbances. Associated Press Dispatches. Kilkenny, Dec. 22.—The polling opened briskly this morning. The presence of a force of police and military scattered throughout North Kilkenny seemed to be a guarantee against any serious breach of the peace. Contingents of the supporters of both candidates arrived early at Castle Comer, which point was apparently re garded as the key to the situation. Tiie feeling of the majority ot the voters, so far as could be judged, seemed to be anti-l'arnell. FBIESTB INFLUENCING VOTERS. An altercation took place between Harrington and a number of priests. This was occasioned by what Harring ton termed the priests'interference with voters. Hot words were exchanged, and in spite of Harrington's protests the priests continued their work of influenc ing voters thought to be leaning toward Parnell. Parnell returned from a visit to the voters of Gowrau in the highest spirits, and announced that Gowran would poll almost a solid vote for Scully. Information is received from Castle Comer that Parnell met with a hostile reception there. It is also stated that the miners voted soHdlyfor Heunessy. TROUBLE AT JOHNSTOWN. Reports from Johnstown state that it was with great difficulty the police there prevented a serious collision between the excited rival factions. The Parnellites claim a majority at tbo Johnstown election. The excitement there in creased when it became known that ScuHy, the Parnellite candi date, had entered a formal protest against the laxity of the regula tions in regard to the admittance of strangers to the polling stations. He and his friends asserted that the.pres ence was apparent in the polling places of many priests known to be the sup porters of iljnnessy. In Kilkenny the polling passed off quietly. Timothy i Harrington says priestly coercion was exercised in North Kilkenny, and that the Parnellites have good grounds to contest the validity of Hennessy's election, should he be re turned. HENNESSY UNDOUBTEDLY ELECTED. In an interview this evening, Parnell said he expected the majority to be small whichever party won. He hoped the bitterness of the language that marked the cbntest, would be forgotten. His eyes are much better. Davitt this evening said he was confi dent that Hennessy's majority would be 1000. London, Dec. 22.—A dispatch from Kilkenny to the Caily News, says there is not the slightest doubt that Hennessy is elected by at least 500 majority. ANTI-PABNELLITE PAI'EES DEBTBOYED. Dublin, Dec. 22.—Two carters em ployed by the Insuppressible newspa per, while driving through the streets with a load of papers, were compelled by masked men to drive to Phoenix park, where the papers were torn to pieces and scattered in all directions.

A Baltimore Man Works the Namesake Racket, With Great Success—Vice- President Morton One of the Victims. AVashtnoton, Dec. 22.—The whole city ia laughing tonight over a story told in this evening's Star of how a smart con fidence man in Baltimore has been vic timizing grave and dignified United States senators. Within the pastjthree weeks this man, who goes by the name of William Duvall, has been writing different senators informing them that the first-born son in his family has just been named after him, and inclosing a baptismal certificate. The letter states that he has bean so unfortunate as to break a leg, and that his fellow-work men have gotten up an entertainment for his benefit, and would the senator be so kind as to take the inclosed five tick ets at $1 each and remit? Mr. Duvall would undoubtedly have been work ing the senate yet, had he not un- fortunately decided on Saturday to make a victim of Senator Manderson. of Nebraska. It so happened that Senator Manderson had seen a similar certificate a few days ago, in which the name of this same first-born son was declared to be Justin Morrill Duvall, and lie likely knew that the venerable senator from Vermont had torn $5 from his salary- and sent it to the suffering father in Balti more. Convinced that if Mrs. Duvall could be the mother of two first-born children, she might give birth to a few more at the same time, |Manderßon in stituted an investigation, the result of which caused much laughter in the sen ate today, which was very mystifying to the galleries until the story came out. According to the certificates which have been uncovered, the following senators have been worked : Dolph, Evarts, Hig gins, Carlisle, Paddock, Squire, Wolcott, Edmunds, Sanders, Pettigrew, Stan ford, Power, Sawyer, Stockbridge, Blair, Hoar, Hale, Washburn, Vest and Hiscock. There are those about the senate who say there are several other newly-born Duvalls among them— Sherman Duvall, Matthew Stanley Du vall and Arthur Gorman Duval, but the gentlemen thus honored insist that they have not been called upon. It is, under stood several of the senators, besides sending !?5, also sent the little one a silver mug, spoon or somo other token. The vice-president did not escape. There is a Levi Morton Duvall, and he or his father owns a nice silver cup, appro priately inscribed. It is probable that proceedings will be instituted against Duvall, notwithstanding the great size of his family and the added disability of his broken leg. EASTEItN ECHOES.
