Indiah Territory 1 y Sept 16th. 1876. V Ed. Gazrtte; In your issue of several weeks ngo, I noticed tbat there were Indians on Red IlWer nnd huta short d.&tance from Fort Elliott, Pleese allow ma to correct you and account fur the rumor. Fort Klliot is what last year, was the Cantonment, on tho Sweetwater, Texas It is 14G miles North West of Fort Sill, and 1G4 miles. 15 degress South of West from Fort Reno; and about 15 miles North of the North Fork of Red River, said to be 24 miles west of the 100th meridian, In the Indian war of 1874 the Sweetwater was the great rtndevous of the hostile In dians. For this reaon the post was es tablished there a thing that Col. Mcken zie recommended after he whipped the Ouhardie Coinanches in 1872. Now, there are thtee Aceiicie for 'he wild Indians of this Ttnisory. viz. The Kiowa and Co mntithe Atetiov at Fott Sill about 4.000 Indians; the WitchMn Agency on the Was hita River, 30 miles north of Fort Sill about 4,500 Indians; The Cheyenne and Arapahoe Agency at Fort Reno about 4,000 Indians, and the worst in thebusin ess. None of these Indians can leave the Agencies without a permit, signed by the Acent and approved by the Post Command er. Even when they go on a hunt they must be accompanied by a detachment of ioldiers. About the time of this rumor, the Kiowns were out on a hunt, but Lt Ciewi, 4th Oivalry and a detachment were out with them The Kiowas number only abou: 750 all told. Note of these wild Indians are at all beligercnt now. The Chevenrie8 are two poor, the Arapahoes too c wurdly, the Comanches too much divided, and the Kiowas too politic. The only thing that will drive them upon the war path will be starvation this may get a few of the Comanches and about half tho Cheyennes not ovei '250 warriois The Interior Dept. is giving them just ibout enough food to keep soul and boily together, but we hope there will be an im provement soon. The Agent John D. Miles, for the Cheyennes and Arapahoes at Ft. Reno off.red to the Interior Depart ment, to deliver the annual supplies here at the Bam rales t';e contractor bad last year; nnd when he had transported the supplies here, to turn 0"er all the transpor. tuticn' to the Indians. In other words, he offered tj buy 40 new 4 horse ormul wKgons, 80 sets ol harness and ili the equipments for such a train, get the In dians to work their ponies, drive the teams under good wagon masters, haul all the supplies down here and then give all the wagons harness &a. to the Ijdians, and if there was any money left, he wanted to buy plows, hoes, .., fjr them and aid to make them a relf sustaining people. The igent was so sure thut his offer would be accepted, that he went north and mnde ur rangemenls to buy the wagons, harness, etc. of the beit dealers in the country. The Indians were anxious ia do it, nnd were not only Willing, but were cxirpmely solicitous th it this arrangement should be made. The Agent (old me what the con' tract was las', year and when he came back from the north howtd me his figures After buying the transportation o itfit corn, p'ete. he had about $1,8J0 left, allowing for repairs for breakage with which to buy plow, Lc. When the honorable CDmmis sioners met at St. I.ouis the other day, they concluded from the wording of the law, which says that the contract shall be let to the Invent bidder, that Agent Miles offer could not be granted.

'' We were fhown a private letter from Al. buquerquaMhis week, which in discussing the political situation in the Rio Abajo, estimates that Romero's mnjority iti Eer nalillo coun'y willb at least 1.000 and fully 1 000 in Valencia county. The counties south of the jor.indo will also give him good majorities, thus making his election certain. ,., freight. This week, we were showa a letter re" ceived by one of our merchants from a prominent Commission house at La Junta stating that there is plenty of freight at that pi.int and El Moro awaiting teams to transport it south. Those desiring long trips should go to La Junta as the hulk of the lower .country freight stops at La Junta. Hon. Trinidad Romero.

Keokuk Constitu' tion. . - It requires six men, according to tho San Francisco News Letter, to put up a car window. A young lady gats in, and having humped ttrouiid in her seat for about five minutes, shy turns and requests the gentleman just behind her to perform thut service. This is a near'silitcd indi' vidual, who peéis around tho window frame some time for the catch, end then of course the window slicks jerks his Gnger nail half off, and sits down with u red lace, amid the giggling of the school girls opposite. Next, the men in ti e fiont scut puts his lavender colored kneo on it pe.per of cherries besidu him, clutches and y itiLs ut the knob, Mid finally fulls over into the young lady's lap. The cause of nil this misjry now renmrks that "it doesn't mt.Ucr,'' and then smil. s sweoily tit ti palo young man with long huir. Thin inrrijr turns white, rises, and buttons up his cout for the death struggle. On th eleventh ptii! he bursts a blood vessel somewhere, and goes into the toilet coaipartmant to bleed.

Just when ho is about to use this the conductor happens by, nnd ulides the window airily up with a gentle twist of the wrist. x ha Mnlcallorsn.
