II. Cochrane, cashier of the First Nation al Bank. The affair grew out of the alleged intimacy on the part of Hayden with Coch rane's wife, tlie scandal being one of long standing. Cochrane had separated from his wife some time ago, although no divorce had been obtained. The weapon used was a shot gun loaded with live buckshot, the entire charge penetrating the right side of tlie vic tim killing him Instantly. No words passed between them, so it is supposed tlie killing was premeditated. Rawlins, Oct. 11.—Rumors arc current here to-night and are authenticated by infor mation obtained direct from General Merritt's command through a citizen named Dully, who left tlie command on Thursday morning, that ever since tlie morning lie reached Gapt.

They have constructed a line of forti fieations out of rocks and are continually at work strengthening lliclr position, ami to dislodge them will require additional force. Col. Brackett, of tlie third Cavalry, with a detachment of six companies of cavalry and two of infantry, will leave for the fronton Monday. Horses to remount the dismounted men of Gapt.

Rawlins, Wyoming, Oct. 13.—Mr. Emil Wabber and George Fuhr, two couriers, have just arrived from what was a few days ago tlie White River agency. From them 1 learn the following particulars : General Merritt advanced on the Indians on tlie Ulli inst. On his way he found many dead bodies, among others lie found tlie body of Carl Goldsteim a teamster, who had been with Government supplies for the Utes at tlie White River agency. He was found in a gulcli six miles this side of tlie agency, lie was shot twice through tlie shoulder, ond was about two miles from his wagons. A team teamslcr named Julius Moore, formerly from Bainbridge, Mass., who was with him when lie left here, was found about 100 yards from Goldstein, with two bullet holes in his breast and liis body hacked and mutilated with a knife or liatehet. As tlie command advanced through the canon they came to an old coal mine, in which was found tlie dead Doily of an agency employe named Dresser. He had evidently beeu wounded and crawled in tlie. mine lo die. 11 s coat was tolded up and placed under liis head lor a pillow. Beside him lay a Winchester rille containing eight cartridges, in one of ins pockets a letter was found, which, as near as the courier can re memetnber, was us follows : " White River. Sept. 2i»th, I o'clock p. m. Major Thornburg : I will come with Chief Douglass and another chief ami meet you to morrow. Everything is quiet here, and Doug lass is flying tile U mied States flag. We have been on guard three nights and will be to night, not tliat we expect any trouble, but be cause there might lie. Did you have any trouble coining through the canyon? [Signed] -X. C. Meeker ••UnitedSuites Indian Agent." t»n entering tin* agency a scene ot quiet desolation prescnted'itself. All the buildings except one were burned to tlie ground, and not. a living tiling insight except the com n.anv. The Indians bail taken everything except flour amt decamped. The women and children were missing, and no hing whatever «mild be found lo indicate what lmd become of I hem. They have either been murdered and Imi i»*d nr ols(' t:iki m away as hostages. Tlieir (' iviulful ami unnii'ntiomiblu ■ fate calls forth tl. e most profound sympathy. The dead hotly of Father Me eker was f.uiiul bouse, 1 about one hum lied yards from his viug on his b.i' i*U, ami shot through the he, id, the left sit 1 ; * of liis head being mashed iu with some blunt iustr muent, a piece of biiri-i l slave driven into liis mouth, Juul one ol liis hands a d arms badly burned.

Another employe named Eaton was found dead, lie was also stripped naked, and hud a bundle of paper bags in liis arms. His face was badly eaten by wolves, ami lie bad a bullet bole in liis left breast. j Frank Dresser, a bi other i f the one tbund in the coal mine, was found badly burned. He had without doubt keen killed instantly, as a bullet bad passed through his liearL llie bodies of Eaton, Thompson. Price, Kludge, ami all tlie otl#r employees not named wert' also found. Kludge was found two miles this ....... ..... , „„t-..,l mil -, bullet hole side the age,a through Ids bead 1 tl e pMUm occupw by the Indians duiin g I hoi nbuigs ,battle, ,,, a breastwork made of stone, was found the dead body of an unknown white man dressed iu buckskin. He was sitting on his knees and had his gun in position to fire. He was shot through the forehead. From this it ap pears the Indians are not all alone in their iiellish work. Tlie supposition is tlie Indians have gone soutli to join tlie Southern Utes, and the impression among the officers of Merritt's command is that the Indians who fought Thornburg number at least 700. Beau River Col., Oct. llt.1i, via Rawi.inb, Wy., Oct. 13.—Indian reports brought in from tlie agency by Los Pinos Utes say that tliirty sevèn Indians were killed during the fight of tlie '29th Sept, nnd tlie siege until Oct. 5th, tJie «rate of Merritt's arrival.

Tlie air goes down tlie main shaft through the north branch in great volumes and finds its exit through the Savage and ad jacent shafts, greatly benefitting all parties. Prospecting drifts running northerly and soutlicily on tlio foot and hanging walls of the large ledge intersected by the main tunnel ] at 11,700 feet irom the entrance, are most encouraging, showing assays of from $8 to $40 to the ton.

As for llie Stall! at large the estimates of Foster's majority at this hour, 8 a. in., vary from 15,000 to 30,000. ll is very generally conceded that llie Republi cans will have a clear majority in tin-join! session of the Legislature, and tin- indications are that later returns will give them a major | i'.y in each House. ! The Gazette says: "The people w ere arous ! ed at the Southern leaders, and resolved to j rebuke them; also, that the defeat of the Dem ! ocrais is due in a great measure lo the fiat money heretics, who sought to unsettle the finances and launch the country again upoiia sea of irredeemable and fluctuating paper money."

Paris, Oct. 11. —It is rumored that the Russian Government lias demanded from Constantinople reparation within 24 hours for the insult to whicli the Russian Consul-Gen eral at Salonica was recently subjected by the populace of that city, threatening to send a war vessel to ,Salonica if the demand is not complied with.

Paris, Oct. 14 .—La France, states that Humbert's election to the Paris Municipality was discussed at Monday's Cabinet council. President Grevy declared distinctly tliat tlio election would modify tlie government's atti tude in regard to amnesty. Nothing waV ranted the belief that tlie deputies would be disposed to revoke the original decision. The council did not anticipate any street distur bances, but decided tliat if any manifestations should arise, it would be necessary to take measures to enforce respect lor tlie law. Another communist, who lias been granted amnesty, lias died, and his funeral was attend ed by 2,000 persons, including a member of tlie Chamber of Deputies. Popocntnpet I. There are a good many reasons why it is not worth while to climb Popocatepetl. The first, and foremost is, several women have al ready climbed it, and where a woman can climb, it is no feat for an American young man to go. In tlie second place, it is sixty miles from tlie capital, which, in Mexico, means two days' journey over bail roads and in uncomfortable stages. On tlie upper part of the mountain the atmosphere is so rare tliat weak persons have frequently been at tacked with hemorrhage of tlie lungs, and some have died. The journey is a laborious one, and a good mile of the way straight up hill, through ashes and cinders a foot deep. Last, but not least, the journey is very ex pensive for stages, board, guides, and cos tumes. Postscript.—The game is not worth the candle. It is a great satisfaction to sec this mountain fVom a distance; to sit on the tipper piazza of a hotel, with your feet on the railing, and a good Mexican cigar, thinking: •'So tliat is Popocatapetl, is it? That is the. mountain my old country schoolmaster used ! to say was the highest iu America, with a pro nunciation eighteen degrees wide of the mark. And now there she is. Wlio'd have thought it iu those old days of school-house benches and wandering school atlases." While yon are looking at it, if you choose tlie right lime of day—after the sun goes down—it disappears before your cigar is fin ished. It is quite possible that the reader may have heard that there is no twilight in the tropics—tlie sun goes down and in a very few inimités it is dark. The mountain grows dim and disappears like the school day mem ories of its unpronounceable name. There is no fire and brimstone coming out of its crater, as there ought to be out of any genu ine volcano; there is nothing but a dim spot in llie distance, to be seen only when the moon gets behind it and lights up itsoutlines. Almost any stranger, looking at the mountain from any elevation in the capital, will esti mate that it is four or five miles away, unless he knows better, for it is sixty. The air is so very clear there you can see a long distance. It, is so clear that a Mexican will see a five •ent piece tw o miles off and go for it .—New York Time ». Krnkc tor Mininir Cages . The recent fearful accident at the Tioga mine. Bodie, shows the necessity of a brake or some similar apparatus for stopping a cage within the reach and control of the men who are ascending or descending. We have a safety apparatus on most cages, hut it only acts when a cable breaks. In a ease like that at tlie Tioga shaft, where the rope is running down oil'the reel, tlie men on the cage arc utterly helpless. There is hardly a wagon or wheeled vehicle of any kind in the country which is not supplied with a brake, by means of which its speed may be checked by those on board, but when our miners mount their vehicle and start on tlieir |ierpendicttlar jour ney they are perfectly helpless. They must trust lo luck, as there is not a tiling on which they can lav their hands to in anv wav assist themselves. " We are confident there could lie arranged a pair of brakes, one on each side ol tlie cage, with levers, by hauling down on which the guides might lie clutched, and the cage stop ped. or its speed greatly cheeked. These brakes should be cut ist rue! cd to act much after the fashion of the ramrod of the old faslii uied Colt's revolver. When not in use the two levers would stand up alongside the side bars of the cage, out ot the way, and w hen wanted it would only be necessary for a man to reach up and bring them down with liis full weight upon them, when chisel-shaped points of steel would be forced into the guides on either side. The brakes could either be arranged to act in tliat w ay or they could be made in the form of a straight lever, with a segment of a circle at the lower end,'a sort of toothed eccentric, which could be draw n tightly against the guides by hauling dow h on the levers, which might be worked by two or more men, when there were several on the cage. Had there been some such apjiarutus on tlie 0;l y,, 0 f t [„. Tioga the men might have stop it ;v. soon as they found tliat it was run ningaway. Then* should be something done j to give our miners tlie means of helping ident of this kind. j themselves in case of an aeci —Virginia Enterprise.
