Ma» Killed and Another Seriously Wounded, [HERALD EXTRA.] A party of miners from the Whippoorwill mine, Silver Creek Mining District, who were fishing on the Big Blackfoct river, moved up the river, leaving R. Evans in Lincoln. On the 8th of July, Evans, in company withj. Eagleson, left Lincoln to Join his party up the river at Negus' old station, on the old stage road. While cross ing the prairie from Daherty's ranch up. they encountered a party of Indians, who laid in «mbusfa. They grabbed hold of Evans and }is gun and dragged him off his borae. He kept bold of bis gun by the barrel, while several of the Indians held fast to the but. With a powerful jerk he recovered possession of the gun. During the time he deceived two dangerous cats with a kfilfe on the bead and left shoulder. He manned to level one of the Indians, while the real of the bloodhounds attacked his triend, J. Eagleson, whom they shot dead. In the meantime Evans mounted his horse ■ltd came with ligbtniug speed to bring the sad tidings to town. The people were on their guard during the whole uigbt and this morning, the 7th of July, suited out in search ef the dead man. The body was found greatly mutilated. The Indians are intent on murdpr and plunder. If savages like these are allowed to roam at large without an escort, in a small and lonely place, with a population of only 42 inhabitants, a big majority of whom are women atm children, our lives and property depend upon their mercy. In the name of the people of Lincoln gulch, I would respectfully submit our precarious position to the consideration of His Excel lency, B. F. Potts, Governor of Monuna. M. ENSCH. Lincoln Gulch, Deer Lodge county, July 7, 1879. Particular* of the India» Outrages w the Biff Blaekfoot. R. Evans, the Silver Creek miner who liad such a narrow escape from being killed by the Indians on the Big Blaekfoot, on the 0th inst., arrived in town yesterday. He received two cuts from a knife, one in the head and the other in the left shoulder—the latter being the moat painful. He will remain at the Sis ters' Hospital for a few days. From Mr. Evans and Mr. John McClure, of Lincoln, we learn the following additional particulars of the sad affair. The Indians that were camped in the valley weiß Fhâhcads and Pen d'Oreilies, and num bered about fifteen lodges. Evans and Eagle son, after leaving Lincoln noticed a mounted Indian following them, but paid no particular attention to him. When crossing a slough a few miles from Lincoln three Indians jumped up from the grass; and the mounted Indian— a big fellow, weighing over two hundred— rode up, jumped from his horse and grabbed the end of Evans' Henry rifle. He would not let go and was pulled off his horse. Two more of the Indians now caught hold of the gun. Evens who, is a powerfully built miner, by a superhuman effort, jumped back, pulling the gun from the grasp of the savages, and dealt the big Indian a terrific blow ou the head. Some idea may be had of the force of that blow from its effect—it broke the gun from t he stock and killed the Indian. At this mo ment the attention of Evans was directed up the bill, where he saw three mounted Indians, with guns in their hands, coming on the dead run. Evans jumped on his horse, called Eagle son to follow him or he would lose his life, and, thanks to the running qualities of his horse, lie escaped to the camp at Lincoln. It was the last seeu of Eagleson alive. The fol ; lowing day his body was found a half a mile I froip the scene of the ambush. He was shot ! in the back, showing that be had made a race for his life, but to no avail. Eagleson was a ' miner, and liad been a resident of Lincoln gulch since '86, and was a man universally respected by all who knew him. The Indians » at once pulled down their tepees and marched off down the Big Blaekfoot towards Missoula. ! —Herald, lit*. Um G mat's Pbun Cheefrt. New York, July 10.—A private letter re ceived in Washington from Grant says he shall defer his return till after the Republican nomination for the ProtMency is made. His change of movements inis been brought about by tiie accounts received of the officious in tentions of some individuals who fasten themselves upon his oilniinlutratioii, and w lioiu he found it difficult to shake off. The same parties, he has been informed, iutend to obtrude themselves upon tiie public by tend ering him a reception, against which he ex I»reuse» the greatest aversion. THE TEBBITOBY. On Sunday night last, at CaZen creek, Cua ter county twelve borees wen stolen, eight belonging to the stage company and four belonging to eettlem. The thieves are sup posed to be white men, but nothing is posi tively known in regard to who the guilty parties are. It le rumored that one of the ■tage driven on the Bozeman and Tongue river route refuses longer to drive his « beat" unie» an escort is furnished. The raiders in the Yellowstone country need and must soon have another thorough military scourg to lug.— Courier, July 10. Ont the night of the 20th ult., five head of herses were stolen from Col. DeLacy's camp on North Fork of Musselshell, near Hall's. The trail led over toward the Crazies. The thieves are supposed to be white men and may try to sell the hone* on the Yellowstone or in Gallatin valley. A reward of «GO is offered for their recovery or in proportion for anv part of them__ lb. Work upon the M. N. M. Company's mill at Rochester, is progressing rapidly, and the stamps will begin dropping in a week or two. We look for a large output of bullion from this camp when it geto fairly to work.—Mad isonian, 12th. City Treasurer Vickers informs us that, for the first time in many years, Virginia City is out of debt, and has some ducats in the treasury. This speaks well for the economi cal administration of the city fathers.— lb. Last Sunday week, a cloud-bunt occurred on the hill between Ramshom and Spring gulches, in this county, doing considerable damage to the placer claims of Moore Bros, and Ann, in the Ramshom.—16. On Thursday morning, Tom Garvey pound ed out three dollan from one pound of rock from Wm. Shield's mine, at the head of Spring gulch, near Summit, and he says there is an abundance of ore in the mine that will discount these figures.—76. On Thursday, a train of nine wagons, with a company or emigrants from Adair county, Missouri, arrived in the city. There were sixteen men and two families in the party, and they seem to be a hardy, industrious class, who wiU be a desirable acquisition to the Ter ritory.—76. Wm. Shields brought down another nice batch of dust which he has pounded out from the ore in his mine near Summit. The lode produces some of the richest specimens of ore we have seen from this neighborhood since the days when the Kearaage was producing its thousands of dollars per week—76. Miners at the head of Mill creek are much gratified with the flattering prospects which they are getting from the quartz lodes which were discovered there a year or so ago. They are working steadily in the mines, sinking upon and opening them, and the results are so good as to leave no doubt that, ere long a flourishing camp will spring up in that region. —76. We hear that parties are contemplating the erection of another smelter at Glendale, for the purpose of reducing ore from the Elm Orlu, Keokuk, and other mines in the Burnt Pine district. This will be an important ad dition to the town, which is rapidly assuming proportions which will make it one of the most prominent points in Southern Montana. —76. a Condensed from the Helena Dallies. On the morning of the fifth Helena expe rienced a faint tremor, just enough to prove it an earthquake shock. But then it is uatuj ral for tremens to follow up the Fourth quite closely. Strawberries only one dollar per gallon at Helena Jeff Sharpe, wounded in the late fight with the Indians, has been placed in the Sisters hospital, Helena. The broken leg will be saved. A concert by Miss King, late of the Col legiate Institute, delighted the Helenaians early last week. The Nellie Boyd dramatic troupe have of fered to purchase the Grand street church with a view of converting it into« theatre. The appropriations for the current fiscal year having been made, the Helena assay of fice reopened last week. a It a Discovery of Gold 1» (ho Big Hons. We are indebted to Mr. Walter Cooper, Who recently returned from an extended trip to Custer couuty, for some items of interest relative to prospecting and the discovery of gold in the bars of the Big Horn river.' It appears that a party of three men have en gaged in not only a thorough prospecting tour, but during last fall and early spring have been successfully working on some or the bars in the Big Horn canon. Mr. Cooper met tiie parties and one of them—Joe Andere son—informed him that they had prospected the river bars for thirty miles up and down the river, and that there are bars the entire distance that will pay from $1.60 to «6.00 a day to the hand, with a rocker. Anderson said he washed out 1,880 buckets and obtained therefrom between «25 and «30. Boran, auotiier of the party, washed out, last fait, 6,000 buckets of the gravel and realized «100, and this spring he washed 1,100 buckets and got «26 as the result. All the washing was done with a rocker and copper plates. Mr. Cooper saw some of the gold and brought up with him a veiy handsome prospect, taken from two pans of dirt. The ground can only be worked during low water as the bars are mostly covered during tiie spring freshets, but from present indications the Big Horn caBon at no distant day will be the scene of extensive and profitable mining operations. — Courier, July 10.

To the peo ple along the lines of the different routes of travel we say there can be no possible dan ger of infection for many days to come. Five new cases were reported this morn ing, and one death, an Infant of Judge E. R. Ray, of the criminal court, who, together with another son, is prostrated with the dis ease. A perfect stampede of citizens is in progress, the trains being unable to carry away the hundreds who are ready to leave. a of Constantinople, July 5__The rumor that ex-Sultan Murad bad escaped seems to be corroborated by the extraordinary military measures taken, and tbe searches on board ships in tbe Bosphorus and tea ef Marmora. Tbe Prince of Bulgaria arrived here to-day and received his investure from the Sultan, who dined with Prince T tbe Russian Ambassador, and sailed for Varna. The Grand Visier has informed the foreign ambassadors that the appointments for commissioners for the settlement or tbe Greek frontier question have been accepted, but as several of the functionaries have re fused to act the Sultan will personally ap point them. Paris, July 8.— Lesseps has just signed the treaty giving him concession of the Isthmus granted by the United States of Colombia. Matters are now to be pushed with the great est activity. The new company will be im mediately constituted with a capital of 400, 000,000 francs. In a long conversation Les sepsthis afternoon repudiated all interven tion on the part of tbe Government, were such intended. He said he fully recognized the troth of tbe statement that tbe United State« was entitled to exercise a large and important influence in the management of tbe canal. He declared the enterprise had no character of speculation, but iu private speculation, though universal in its utility. Paris is silently accepted as tbe center of operations merely because the French laws are severe and offer greater security to share holders on account of the greater control over tbe administrators of the funds. Lessens remarked during the interview he pro posed to offer Grant the position of honorary President of the company. General Castellnau has asked to be placed on the retired list, in order that he may be able to attend the funeral of the Prince Im perial. ■rtMMlâeü« thafontij. Frank Thomson, General Manager of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, arrived in this city early on Sunday morning in his special car. He was accompanied by seven gentlemen, including Dr. Thomson, ids brother. The party spent tbe day pleasantly «n and around Salt Lake, visiting among otto er places Fort Douglas. They expressed themselves as being impressed with tbe beau ty of our city. The party left on the after noon train for Ogden, accompanied by Suner ntendent Sharp of the Utah Central. This is Mr. Thomson's first trip to the West, and he heartily prated the Union Pacific Rail road. He said be expected to -find a good Western road, but had no idea that the bed w .*? 80 ma< * e or ttlft equipments so com plete. Tiie trip mapped out by tiie party ia » yery extensive one, and they witi >m reach home before tha hnaer part of August. They wilt proceed from Ogden to the terminus of the Utah and Northern; thence to the head waters of tbe Yellowstone, and through the National Park; they will then go East till they strike the Missouri rivet, where they wiil embark on a steamer and go north for a considerable distance*; leaving the rivet, they will journey, part of the way on pack mules, Bismarck, where they will board the ears of the Northern Pacific and go to Duluth, Miunesota. The object of tbe trip is not definitely known, but it is supposed that if Mr. Thomson's impression» of the Northern country is favorable, the Southern trans-con tineutal railroad project will be abandoned, and Thomas A. Scott will join forces with the Northern Pacific —Salt Lake Tribune, 8fA. Heer lodge Items. New North. West. The Deer Lodge and Butte Telegraph Line was completed on Wednesday evening.
