Washington, Oct. 25__Secretary Schurz at a late hour to-night recr ived a dispatch from Special Agent Adam:, dated at Camp on White Hiver, Oct. 24th, via Rawlins, Oct. 25th. He reports that he visited the camp of the hostiles between Grand and Gunnison rivers, and that after holding a conference with them the captive women and children were delivered to him without conditions. He then preceded to General Merritt's camp on White Hiver, where he airived on the night of the 2:id. He informs the Secretary that after conferring with General Merritt he will return to the camp of the hostiles and proceed tlienee to Chief Ouray's home at I.os I'inos where he expects to arrive on the 30th instant, with a view of accomplishing othei purposes of liis mission in which he hopes |be equally successful. He adds an ex pression of great hopefulness that fur ther hostilities may be wholly avoided. Agent Adams also reports that after leaving the hostile country lie met Indian runners who reported that their lookouts had a tight on the 20tli inst. with a hunting party from Merritt's camp, brought about accidentally by scouts firing on the Indians, in which a scout named Hurnme, Lieut. Wier and two other whites and two Indians were killed. The Indians claim they were posted at that place merely to observe the movements of the troops, and that they did not want to fight, anu did not fight until llumme killed one of their number. In this telegram reference is made to the dispatch sent to the Secretary from Platte creek on the 21st, announcing the recovery of the captive women and children, and probably furnishing details of the con ference, but that dispatch has not yet been received. The dispatch received to-niglit was started from White River yesterday morning. Secretary Schurz is very earnest and enthusi astic in his commendation of the intrepidity with which General Adams went among the hostiles to rescue the captives, and the evident skill and good judgment lie has displayed in the conduct of the whole business with which he was entrusted. From later information from Secretary Schurz it now appears that all the captive women and children were delivered to Spe cial Agent Adams wiLliout conditions. They hail all been well treated by the Indians. Secretary Schurz immediately upon receiving this welcome intelligence conveyed it to the President, and subsequently to General Sher man. All of these are earnest in commenda tion of the intrepidity of Mr. Adams. Gen eral Merritt will make no more movements until Adams is definitely heard from. Rawi.ins, Oct. 20.—A courier just in with dispatches from General Merritt's camp on While River, reports that General Charles Adauts, U. S. Peace Commissioner, came into Merritt's camp on the morning of the 24th with the women and children of the Meeker and Price families. The captives were un harmed—had not been subjected to any insult or injury. The Indians desire peace and claim to have been forced into the outbreak. Terms of surrender have been forwarded to Washington. Scout, H. Moore came into camp on the 24th. He had been attacked by a dozen Indians and corraled all night, escap iuy with difficulty. The camp is surrounded bji small bands i>f ludiatis who are running oil' horses and lying in wait for stragglers. The body of the chief of scouts, Humme, was found by the cavalry on the 23d and buried. He had been killed at the time Lieut. Weir fell. The body of Lieut. Weir will arrive in Rawlins about the 1st of No vember. A fight is reported at the old battle ground on Milk Creek between the Ties and ranchmen. No particulars received as yet. A pack train with supplies reached Merritt's command on the 22d. The command is very much in need of all kinds of supplies. An other talk will be held with the Indians in a few days. j ' Washington, Oct. 2d.—Secretary Schurz to-day received a short dispatch written by Special Agent Adams, from Platte creek, on the 21sl and forwarded via Los Pinos, from which it appears he did not take the surren dered captives, namely Mrs.'and Miss Meeker, Miss Price and two children to Gen. Merritt's camp, but immediately sent them to Lake City, to proceed thence via Del Norte to Den ver'. He adds in his dispatch that the Indians are anxious for peace, and desire a full inves ligation upon the question of the troubles. Agent Stanley alos telegraphs the Secretary fiom Los Pinos on the 23d instant, as fol lows: "The women and children are given up. All want peace. Ouray will do all he Washington, Get. 25.—At a Cabinet meeting to-day the opinion was unanimous | that the Interior Department should suspend intercourse with the refractory Utes, leaving the War Department to deal directly with them.

The Tammany icu:list Robinson grows stronger daily ■ales great demoralization among his ..... . friends. Democratic dissatisfaction I w ith'his nomination increases as the methods [ by which h was secured become better known. Thus Geo. S. Crawford, a delegate to the j state Convention, publishes a letter resigning 1 from the King's county Democratic Commilte stating his discovery since the Convention 1 Hint one of ,he considerations on wliit-h votes for Robinson's nomination were obtained was I his paisloii of certain convicted felons ; and that another was that the trial of certain well ! known parties on grave charges ot public I character should be indefinitely postponed. ! Cool headed Demociats privately admit that i tbe stale is lost to the Democracy, anil the j only question is as to Cornell's majority or plurality. Some usually good Republican ! calculators claim that Cornell's majority will 1 double Foster's ill Ohio. They underrate the I Republican vote against thuii candidate. ' Ti|i-re will probably be considerable more ; serateiiiU" of Cornell by the Republicans in ! h . linke of the Maine management than they I anticipate. On the other hand many Tam ! many supporter- will vote tor Cornell outside j tills city, and that Cornell wil^bc Gu.ei uoi ! ! 1 i j I is no lunger cousiderei . i Ohio victory lucre is i»' . .. !

It now seems absolutely certain that unless Grant consents to run either Sherman or Blaine will sweep the field against all comers if the Republicans carry New 1 York handsomely. Grant's most intimate friends East say he will insist upon being permitted to seek re tirement. of private life and accept a dignified and profitable business position which will be open t,o 1dm. The Democratic split now promises to give the Republicans a larger con trol in the municipal government of New York Ilian they ever had before. i Denver, Col., Oct. 20.— The Red Hill Fairplav and Leadville R. R. Company or ganized here to-day for the purpose of build ing a railroad from the end of South Park Road to Fairplay and Leadville ; also propos ed to construct a tunnel through Mosquito mountains, and the company organized for thispuipose. Capital stock of the twocompan iescombined amounts totwelveand alialf mil lion. The tunnel will he two miles anil a half, and a contract has been let to have it built in one year at a cost of $400,000. The distance by tills way from Fairplay to Lead ville will be twenty miles, while that by South Park is sixty. The corporation is com posed of Goveornor F. W. Pitkin, Major J. Wate McMuldon, Herman Berckerts, J. E. Cole, A. Hall. J. C. Fuller,, ffm. Wallace, Augustus R. Meyer and O. H. Henry, of Col orado ; and Julius Cohen, Henry Ruske and Ward Bangs, of Chicago. Rochester, N. Y., Oct. 25.—Courtney has issued a card. He says : I will row Mr. Haulau at any time he may appoint. I am willing now as I always have been to row a fair and honest race to decide which is the best oarsman, and this virtual postponement of the race which was to have been pulled on Chautauqua Lake the 10th, met with my cor dial approval. I only add five days after my new shell is finished, and want an impartial judgment upon ils merits. Courtney's friends object to Maikie as referee and it is probable they will insist upon another. Articles of agreement for a sculling match between Elliott and Boyd stipulates that the race shall be rowed on the Tyne Course. The first deposit of fifty pounds to be made on the 31st inst ; the second deposit of fifty pounds on the 19th of December, and final deposit of one hundred pounds on the day be f re the race. Date of the race not yet fixed. Elliott claims he has greatly improved his style of rowing and is confident of being able to render capital account of himself when he again meets Hanlan. The sporting papers say Elliott is undoubtedly the strongest man anil if he has really discovered how to utilze his strength and to supplement it by availing himself of all those mechanical contrivances which contribute so greatly to Haitian's prow ess he ought tobe able to defeat Hanlan with some amount of ease. Elliott's claim for the cup was made immediately. The highest au thority in England agree that Hanlan has for feited his title of champion of England as well as his claim to the cup.

Hennessey is sustained on every point of the controversey, and the approval emphasized by an increase of emoluments to .£0,000 yearly, dating back from January, 1879. There is great exultation in Chinese official quarters over the restoration of the. Province of lit by the Russian treaty negotiated at St. Petersburg. Apprehension is expressed by many diplomatic agents that China, inflated by tliis unexpected accession will assume henceforth a bearing of incresed arrogance anil defiance. A revelation has been made in Hong Kong of a system of human slavery practiced by Chinese purveyors. Raids are made by the desperadoes among the villages on the main land and young gills captured, brought to Hong Kong, sold and confined till sufficiently matinc, and then resold. The discovery was made through a proclamation offering a reward for a run-away slave girl fourteen years old. Rigid investigations are progressing and some extraordinary discoveries have been made. The operations of the slave t raders is very ex tended, reaching even to Japan ; one little Japanese girl having been found in bondage. Yokohama, Get. 11.—The cholera is rap idly subsiding. Official returns show upwards of 150,900 since the outbreak in April, and 85,000 deaths. The suppression now is at tributed to energetic efforts of the government and unprecedented expenditures for sanitary purposes The authorities claim that if their endeavors had been seconded instead of openly opposed by the European representa tives, tlie epidemic would have been under control two months ago, and probably thou sands of lives saved. The extraordinary report is circulating that a fraudulent issue of several millions of paper government money in small denominations is in circulation. It is declared that it was obtained from Germany, where the currency was originally engraved an printed. The de tails are obscure and contradictory. Several arrests have been made in high social and business circles. Nordenskjolil and party start on their re turn to Sweden to-day in the ship Yega. He will stop on the way at the principal Asiatic ports. The substitution of the Japanese silver Yen for the Mexican dollar progresses rapid ly. The former coin is now universally ac cepted by foreigners and the advantage over the old Mexican dollar is acknowledged. It is expected soon to extend throughout the open ports of China and Hong Kong, Sing apore, etc. Affairs in l.oo Choo remain unchanged. Japan maintains its original position anil China envoys show no disposition to proceed to extremities.

At the meeting of citizens held here yester day to co-operate with tlie Army of the Cum berland in the matter of unveiling the statue to General Thomas, tlie Chairman was authorized to appoint a committee of 100 commissioners to co-operate In carrying out its programme and for tlie reception of Grant, should lie visit Washington on that occasion. The President has invited Grant to be his guest whenever lie may come to Washington. It is doubtful that he will he here at the un veiling of the statue, as lie has an engagement at Indianapolis October 20lli ; Gen. Sherman, however, says lie will try to persuade him to come. New York, Oct. 27.—Two immense polit ical meetings were held here to-niglit, one of ; ! tlie Democrats at tlie Academy of Music, j Brooklyn, where Speaker Randall was chief j tel speaker, and the other at Cooper Union, ; at where ex-Minister Stoughton, Gen. Kilpat- to rick and Secretary Sherman held forth. At j tlie latter meeting, after Sherman had advised 1 all to vote for Cornell as an honest man, some one in the audience wanted to know why the [ President had removed him from office. This was greeted with a storm of cheers. Slier man said lie hail often answered such ques lions before ; there w as no charge of dislim:-i estv against Cornell, and hi§ record nas the"best from beginning to end; besides, the Republicans upheld manners, not men.

The ap pellant was injured by her horse being fright ened by the engine of a street railway com pany and running away, and she sued the company. The court below rendered a ver dict against lier, but the Supreme Court re versed tliiR decision, holding tlie city liable for all damages to persons or property by tlie running of said steam motors, since the city has no authority to convey title to streets or authorize their use for private purposes, nor for public purposes, except by legislative au thority, which renders it dangerous to public travel.

Holmes have since died. Holmes has been superintendent of bridges on the road for several years. New York, Oct. 27. —Sherman's speech last night is strongly criticised by the Times, whicli says :—" The sei vices which Sherman might have rendered to his party and to the country remain to be performed. His speech, éxcellent as in many respects it is, evades the serious aspect of financial questions and glosses over the palpable hindrances to the permanent working of resumption. The speecli is a campaign speecli and nothing more. It. is not« contribution to the stock of financial knowledge which should have been furnished by tlie author and administrator of tlie Resumption Act, familiarized by ex perience with its weak points anil alive to the necessity of correcting that before their cir culation became irremediable." The Times tuen goes on to explain how continued coin age of silver will ultimately be a prolific source of embarrassment and will at no dis tant day drive gold out of circulation. Fiom tliis tlie Times argues that Sherman's state ment that resumption was a triumphant suc cess is not true. The stock market craze developed i uto extra ordinary proportions yesterday and recorded transactions reached the unprecedented ag gregate of nearly 580,000 shares. The largest previous day was 535,000 shares. The great est excitement prevailed and the fluctuations were very violent.

Tlie women and children are safe at Chief Ouray's house, nine miles be low. They stoodrt journey well, and Mrs Meeker lias improve 'n health every day since we started. Wo left on tlie morning of the 22d. The Indians seemed unwilling to have us leave until they learned what success General Adams had in stopping the further advance of General Merritt's command. Mr Meeker's papers were all burned, and what money Mrs. Meeker had was taken from her by Douglas. Their intentions were to kill tlie women and children, as the windows of the room in which they first took refuge were riddled with bullets the instant they had left it for a more secure place in the milk-room Mrs. Meeker thinks that the squaw wife of Chief Johnson, sister of Ouray, did more than all tlie others to save their lives. She was as kind to them as a mother, and their parting ; was very touching. Jack's band fought tlie ! troops and Douglas' men killed tlie agent and j employés. Agent Meeker was killed by An j tel ope and Wanpattila. Mrs. Meeker was shot ; at while running from the house, attempting to hide in the sage brush; the hall passed j through her dress and made a slight flesh 1 wound in tlie thigh about tour inches long, The arrangements iTr a fight with Merritt's [ command was most, complete; two hundred Arapahoes had joined Jack, and many others from tlie neighboring tribes, and had it not been tor tin* timely arrival ot Chief Ouray s order to cease fighting, the name ot Merrritt by rauchmei Major Pol to make tlie after the i tit oral.
