The statement recently published by Mir
Bogy, late .Commissioner of Indian 'Affairs,
substantiates the view which, we have all
aloof taken, of our difficulties with the In
dian tribes, and of the management of om
Indian affairs generally: According to ni,-

leader around .whom' air the ' malcontent
spirits of the other tribes rally: Mr; Bogy
thinks it would be'easy to satisfy the re--
duirements of this chief and his tribei'nd
that it would be a much 'more humane and
economical policy for -the uovernment to
spend a few-hundred thousand dollars in
providing them with reservations and cat-

be involved in a general Indian war,; which,
if once started, will extend from the Mis
souri river to the foot of the Rocky Moun
tains,, and from the -mouth ot tne xellow-
stone to and including Arizona ana wew
Mexico, costing, as he believes, many mil
lions ot dollars.- thousands of lives, and the
entire suspending and perhaps destruction
of the railroads- nowrbeingbuilt upon the
plains.,-, iw.r.-.-:.w. t?--?-r3.pl
v The expedition sent out under Gen.. Han
cock is, Mr. Bogy-thinks a great mistake.
All that was wanted .was the sending ot a
small number of men to the -Yellowstone
to chastise the. chief Red Cloud and his
adherents. The effect tof the appearance of
an army of the magnitude or that under
Gen. Hancock's orders will bo to alarm all
the. well disposed tribes and render a gen
eral war inevitable. These views,'he says",
he tried months ago to impress upon the
Government;: but no attention - was paid to
them. This, he . attributes to the in fin
ence of the ' Indian 'Bureau at JWash
ington, where, -. he ,-contends, t: have: origi
nated the ; numerous frauds that have
permeated our " Ind i in affairs and
tbat have created all the present difficul
t es. The head office there, he, asserts, U
surrounded by a set of heartless cormorants
who' care but little for the consequences,
provided their rapacity is satisfied.
In all this there is -but too much truth,
and it is a meiancnoiy renecuon tnat re
peatedly as it has been' urged it has failed
in producing any impression. If we wage
a general war of extermination against the
tribes and" we do not see. what else is to
result 'from Hancock's - expedition the
world will, in view of these statements.

The commander then' wrote a few ', lines
and banded the slip to General Meade, and
he retired. "This was repeated until all were
gone and the General was lett alone: One
of .the staff of a division commander,1 who
was sick, was the last to retire, and he is
our authority for the above. 7
All were ignorant of each other's order.
They felt assured that a retreat had been
Wifected; "Any other alternative would
have been believed , to .be madness. . Had
they known that the order had been given
to advance, Instant' and universal 'mutiny
would have been raised. That eloquent si

A disease much resembling cholera has
appeared at Helena, Ark. Tbe mortality,
though greater among the colored people,
has not been Confined to that class. The
cause ot the" malady.: says a local paper.
may be traced to the too tree use of the im-
pure waters oi tne. overnow, ana tne in
fectious miasma caused by the exhumation
of the buried United States colored soldiers
now going on immediately around Helena.
About fourteen hundred bodies nave been
exhumed; and these instead ot being in
stantly, retnterred or submitted to the ac
tlon-v'iOf.' chloride-or.' lime, or some
other disinfecting agent,,, are. left ex
posed .to the sun ana air, piled
in Ieap3 uponK the hills, in- rude coffins,
thus contaminating the whole atmosphere.
and entailing upon our peopledisease and
death. - It may be, and doubtless is, a noble
thing iri a nation to' remove troin the sol
diers' graves the bones ot the men who have
fallen in its service, in order that they may
be Dlaced in one-common 'cemetery ; - but
this should not be "done with impunity
the living citizens certainly should not
be made the medium of contagion- aud
death to all within reach of the scene
removal. - The atmosphere, of the hills,
where the national work is being prose
cuted, has the feted" odor of the charnel
house. s . ! ...
One Cause of Crime.
To those who have daily access to
local news of the city and country, the rec
ord of crime Is Indeed alarming. Theft,
robbery, murder, arson, rape and . the like
crimes are committed openly, daringljy
every part of the State. These crimes
to be chiefly confined to the purlieus of large
cities, but now the most secluded spot
the Interior of the State is not exempt from
daring crimes. ' The inquisitive naturally
asks lor a solution of this unprecedented
growth ot crime, and it is not a difficult
! matter to give at least one solution. Ex
i ample is said to be stronger than precept,
and when the citizen, whose duty it is
obey" the law; finds the law-makers them
selves steeped in iniquity it is not unnatur
al to follow tneir example. If it is pub
licly known that our Congressmen
Legislators, falsify and plunder, steal
rob, take bribes for acts ef iniquity, vote
tnemseives puuuu juuuey jusc asf , they
please,' and commit other diabolical out
rages, it is not astonishing that the-ruffian
in private life 6hould take courage from
ruffian in public position, ir our law-mak
ers desire that their enactments should
obeved let them set a better exam pie ot nu
rity and virtue than the last Legislature
the last Congress have done. What a
"basing thought, that the men who are
; to make wholesome laws for the safety
j a connaing people, snouia tnemseives-'

; or .Nation. t;7o:r j . ,. j -

Snow in the Sierra Nevadas—
Great Loss of Life.
The following is an extract' froma letter
written March 9tb. on the too of the Sierra
Nevada mountains, b one., ot the .officers
In the employ of the Pacific Railroad vom;
pany: '.'".' ' V " ' !
" kFor some weeks past ; I have been1 sta
tioned in the Sierra Nevadas, in charge of
the engineering of some tunnels that are
being constructed very : near the' summit,
We are completely environed by snow; ' I
doubt If the oldest. inhabitants of Califor
nia realized until lately the. full extent of
the snow fall in those mountains.
.'TberWildest stories J. nave heard are no
exaggerations. . My snow;gnage, a few
days ago, showed 19 teet 4 inches on a per
fect level. 1 have seen places near the
wagon road Where It Is piled up more than
50- feet; - Avalanches, -or snow-slides.: are
frequent and fatal.1 r-ln one case-a camp of
Chinamen was covered up,' and seventeen
of them killed. At another time the snow
came down: on a camp of white men while
they, were , asleep. Eleven ot them were
buried fourteen hours,' and afterward dug
out alive; three, were killed.' Many other,
though', less 'extensive; accidents have oc
curred.'' It seems strange to b8 surronhded
by' this cbhdltl6n of things, when I know
that in live hours'" time I may be in the Sac-
rsnn ntn vaIIpv whtra , anrinir ia. in! lull
bloom, and wheat is growing iq J,hg fields
waut high. 7
'Tbe snow is a serious impediment to
the railroad. It. Is proposed to', cover, all
the cuts' in the snow country ; yet I fear
communication will always be very much
Interrupted by It."

President Lincoln on Negro Voting.
We desire - to call the' attention of the
Radicals to the following extract from
speech Mr. Lincoln expressed in a debate
with Douglas, at Charleston, llln beptem-
While I was in the hotel to-day,
elderly gentleman called upon me to know
if. i-was really in favor ot producing, a per-
feet equality between the negroes and the
white people. Iwill say then,' that I am
I not, nor never have been In favor of making
I voters or jurors oi negroes, nor oi qu.aniy
I, ... . . lis aa a. . a... . :
in ir cnem to noiu omce, nor to intermarry
with white people; and I will say in addi
tion to this.that there is a physical amerence
between' the black and white races, which
I believe will forever prohibit the two races
from exer living on terms ot social ana
political equality. And inasmuch as they
cannot so live, while they do remain to
gether there must be the position of superior
and interior, ana i, as mucn as anyotner
man, am in favor of having the superior
position assigned to tne white race...
The Disadvantage of Being an
Americans are acquiring in foreign coun
tries h reputation for lavish. expenditure
which sometimes operates to our disad van
tage. A correspondent in Naples writes
as follows : .. .
It is, very unfortunate to speak the Eng
lish language. ' ' Answering a question ot
American yesterday at dinner cost me'a
franc; which was moderate. 1 had ordered
my dinner in French, and as the waiter
not very well versed In that language,
took me for a Frenchman ; but the English
language was the signal for an advance
my bill. A lew days ago :i went into
cameo shop and asked in French -the price
ot a miniature, and was told thirty francs.
I went ten paces further and asked in Eng
lish, the. price of the same thing, and
told sixty, francs. Aly gentle reader
readers are gentle If you ever expect
visit this continent, begin to study French
and German now; and when the shores
America fade In the distance, speak yout
last word ot jangnsn tin your return.
Verdant Suckers and Buckeyes.
The Salem (Massachusetts) Journal. Rad
ical, In a recent Issue said:
"Although it lias taken a great deal ot
time and cost us a vast amount of money, we
have at least got the stolid Dutch ot Penn
sylvania, and the "verdant 'suckers', and
'buckeyes', of the western States 'educated
up' to the higher law standard. A lew
years ago they spat upon us us, the de
spised abolitionists we determined that
the 'negro' (as they called the colored man)
6hould be made their equals, or we would
crush the Union. Colored suffrage now is
a fixed fact. The foot ot the negro is on
the neck of our ancient revilers, and those
who are not in our toils must stand from
Verdant? Of course. yes, they are not
anything else, or they would not have per
mitted themselves to be used by the New
Englanders the way they nave been. . , ,r
