" " ! tn.ircial undertaking. Yesterday morning the Independent i lished an account of the stealing of al forty head of horses from the Missouri valley. I This morning we publish the sequel. On the ! I I night of the 1st Inst, the Indians stole sixteen I head of horses from Crow creek, and two from O'Neill's stable. Deep creek, en the oppoeite aide of the Missouri river. They circled through the valley, and in all captured about forty head of horses. On the morning of the 2d a party of ranchers, composed ot the following men, started in pursuit of the lu dlans : W. J, Shame, Wm.Deadmoud, Wm. I Harvey, Thomas Brewer, John O'Neill, A. Harter and Wm. Woods, with possibly two other men. The party struck the Indians' trail and followed it a distance of about | thirty miles to the head of Sixteen Mile creek, in the Belt range of mountains, where a des- 1 perate fight ensued between the Indians and ranchmen, resulting in the killing of four . Indians and the wounding of Jeff. Sharpe. Mr. Sharpe was so badly wounded that he could not ride his horse, and a messenger | was despatched for a doctor and a wagon to creek country, where he, in company wit! convey the wounded man home. Mr. Lyle Smith, who brought the news to town, states that the entire band of horses were recaptured except two which the Indians rode away on. Wo have no further particulars as to the fight or what band the Indians belonged to. Six Indians participated in the fight, and two escaped. Later.—M r. B. B. Harrison, of the Assay Office, arrived last, evening from the Deep creek country, where he, in company with three others, had been huntiiig. Unknown 1 to them the raiding Indians had passed within a short distance of them. Mr. Harrison in forms us that Mr. Sharpe's condition is con sidered precarious. The thigh bone is broken and be will have to be conveyed forty miles, part of the way over the mountains, and will arrives from Helena. After he was shot the brave fellow killed an Indian.

Chicago, July 2 —The Times' Washington special says : The Indian Department has information from the Gros Ventre Agency, Montana, under date of June 10th, that Brit ish Indians in large numbers have crossed the border, that they are destroying the buffalo upon which the Gros Ventres depend hugely for their support, and that skirmishes have oc curred between our own and the foreign In dians with loss of life on both sides. The British Indians are well armed, and are driv ing the Americans before them, the latter be ing in a panic and desiring to cross the Mis soiiri river. Fifty lodges of the BritUh Indians and one hundred lodges of British half-breeds are reported being near the post. 1 I j I I Information has been given to the War and State Departments in order that proper action j may be taken. Increased Interest In Minim*. I I I New York, June 28—The Tribune to-day prints three columns of enterviews with par ties interested in mining stocks here, and says editorially : The talks have been held with a number of influential and prominent men, all more or less directly connected with the bul lion interests, and all unite in declaring that a large amount of Eastern capital has been invested in mining enterprises during the past year. Various estimates of this amount run 1 from $5,000,000 to $12,000,000. It is evident, however, that this is but the beginning. Many more millions seem sure to follow. It seems the bonanza men are already discussing the question whether in time the great mines of Colorado and California will not be controlled by the capital centered in New York, W. G. Croly has been lately visiting the mining regions, and predicts there will soon be a genuine mining excitement in the East —an era of great speculations, in which much money will be made and lost. The striking way in which some of Croly's former finan cial predictions have been fulfilled will cause this one to be received with much attention. Names are given of twenty-two mines as the principle ones selling stocks in this market. Nine are in Colorado, four in California, and the remainder in Utah, Nevada, Dakota, Mon tana and elsewhere, The Tribune says new companies spring lttered daily into life, and fresh mines are oflei daily for sale to our buyers. A Wall street banker, interested largely in mining property, exclaimed recently : •' There is no end to the schemes ; every other man who comes to the office has a mine to sell. Three-quarters of all the mining companies in this market have been floated merely to make money on the , sale of the stocks. Of course they are all go ing to make money, and the stockholder will 1 not lose anything to speak of." Dilemma at the Bonapartiste. London, July 1.—The Times correspond ent at Paris says : A majority of tlie Bona patists are understood to concur with Rouher in acknowledging Prince Jerome Bonaparte as chief of the Napoleonic dynasty. They argue that the will of the late Prince Imper ial, which asks ex-Empress Eugenie to co operate with Prince Victor, was written on the assumption that the testator would sur vive Prince Jerome Bonaparte. This rea soning, however, is considered a transparent excuse for tlie non-observance of tlie imprac ticable will of the Prince Imperial. Rouher's retirement from active politics, is evidently owing to the feeling that lie and Prince Jer ome could not act together and tlie latter could not be set aside. W'liat lietween Jerome and the possible adherence to the Republic and tlie impossibility of tlie clerical section of Bonapartists choosing a leader, without, either acting against the wishes of tlie Prince I Imperial's will, or provoking a distinct disap prova! from Prince Victor, the Bonapartists ! * ns - Miss Nellie P.
