Salt Lake, Utah, July 5 The Times extra
has the following from Bozeman, Montana,
July 3, 9 p. m; "Mr, Taylor, bearer of
dispatches from Little Horn to Fort Ellis,
arrived ihia evening, tnd reports as follows:
The baUle wa8 fought on the 25th, thirty
or forty miles below the Little Horn.
Custer attacked an Indian village of from
3,500 to 4,000 ttiirriors on one sido and
Colonel Reno was to attack it on the otLer
Three companies were placid on a hill as a
re8Grve, Oeneral Custer and littecn ollicers
atul every man belonging to five companies
were killed. Reno retreated under the
protection of the Reserve, Tho whole
number killed, wuá 213. General Gibbon
joined lleno, Tho Indians left tho battle
field looking like a slaughter pen, a3 it is
really, being in a :it;rrcw ravine, Thedvad
were much ninUl.ited. Tho situation now
looks 3erimi3. Gj'.iiral Terry arrive! at
Gibbon's camp on a steamboat and crossed
the command over ami accompanied it to
join Custer, who knew it was coming-
Seven men were burei J iu one place and the
ESTIMATED AT 300 VI :n OXIA'St WOCXDEM.
Indians surrounded Reno's command and
held them one day in tho hills, cut off from
water, until Gibbon's command came iu
sight, when they broke camp in the night
and left. The Seventh fought like ligers
and were ovacome by mere brute force
The Indian less cannot bo estimated, as
they bore off and cached mnst of tkeir k'.l'ed
Tho remnant of the Seventh Cavalry and
Gibbon's command are returning to the
mouth of Little II .mi, whore the steamboat
lies. The Indians got all the arms uf the
kil'ed soldiers. There were seventeen
commissioned officers kilhd. The whole
Custer family died at the head of their
column. The exact loss is net known, ns
both adjutants and serg-jatit nv.jor were
killed. The Indian camp wa3 from three
to f'jur niile3 long, and was twenty miles
up the Little Hera from its mouth. The
Indians actually pul'ed meu off their hordes
in sr.ne instances. I give thisns'fuylor
told me, as he was over the field after the
Latkh. The above is confirmed ly other
Jitters, which tay Custer met tvi'.h fearfu'
RtsiiAUCc, D. T.. July 0.
At r. point about three miles down the
right bank of the stream, Custer had evid.
ently attempted to fori and attack the vil
lrge fi om the ford. Thu trail was found to
lead back up to the bluffs and to the north
rt'tird, as if the troops had been repulsod and
compelled to retreat, and at the same time
had been cut off from regaining the forces
under Reno. The bluffs tlong the right
bank come sharply down to '.he water and
ore inter? perscd by numerous ravines all
along the Elopes &nd ridges, nnd in the
ravines lay the dei-.d arranged in order cf
battle, lying ts they had fought,
lino behind linn, stowing where defensive
positions had been successively taken up
und held till none were left to fight. Then
hu jdlel iu a narrow compass, horses and
men were piled promiscuously. At the
hightst p' int of the ridge lay Custer, eur
rounded by a chosen band. Here ins two
brother and his nephew, Mr. Reed, Colon
els Yntis and Cooke, and captain Smith,
all lying in a circle of a few yards, their
horses beside them . Hire, Lehind Yutes'
company, the lai-t stand had been made,
r.nd here, one after unother. these last
nrvivora of Custer's five companies had
met their death. The compeiiics liad sue

but it vas inscribed on Xhi surface of these

bodies have been buried from Custer's nnd
Reno's command. The last one found was
that of Mr. Kellogg, Sorrerpondctit of the
