REPORTED SPECIALLY FOR THE HERALD WESTERN UNION TELEGRAPH COMPANY. BY UNITEDSTATES. Tkc Hodot- Indian Trouble. Sax Francisco, April 16.—Headquarters Modoc Expedition, April 15, camp south side Tide Lake : The day opened warm and still, hut it was ushered in by the roar of musketry and occasional booming of howitzers from Colonel Mason's camp at Signal Rock, north side of Captain Jack's position, directly under that famous stronghold. General Gillein, w ho had been waiting for the arrival of his stores and the Warm Spring Indians, issued orders yesterday for tents to be struck and draw T n in a compact place near the hospital, and for the troops to be supplied with three days' rations and 100 rounds of ammunition. Next, for the cavalry to move at 2 a. m. to-day, and for Colonel Mason, on the opposite side of the lava bed, to move at the same hour on the enemy. Colonel Perry and Lieutenant Crcssan, of the cavalry, were to move to a point beyond the main cave and conceal thcmselycs until joined in the morning by the ini an try and artillery. It was hoped that when the latter companies left camp the Modocs would observe them, and in an at tempt to cut them off would fall into tlie hands of the cavalry. . These movements were faithfully executed, probably hurried a little on our side, by the escape of Long Jim, a Mo v e, who was under guard as a prisoner of war, and at midnight leaped past the guard and escaped, it is thought, although many shots were tired at him. At daylight we heard an irregular fusilade on the opposite side of the lava bed, and knew that Colonel Mason's force, or his skirmishers, were en ga«red. At 0 o'clock we heard the booming (jf°howitzers and saw shells bursting over Captain Jack's camp. At this time the rocks were swarming with Indians and the firing w as rapid. The plan of battle was from the north side, where Colonel Mason w as, to ad vance his command on the right, and the Warm Spring Indians on his left, circling up along the ledge and unite with the right of the troops from this side, leaving only the lake for the Modocs to escape by. Lieut. Green was left at camp in charge of the arms anti ammunition, and Captain Trimble, 1st artillery, with 20 men, was léft in charge of the camp on this side. Colonel Green at 7 a. m. united with Colonel Perry's command in about an hour and a half after leaving camp, and soon the ball opened, Captain Miller, company E, 12th infantry, command ing the battalion, his company being com manded by Lieut. Leary. Miller had the ex treme light; next, Capt. Throckmorton, bat tery M, 4th artillery ; Lieut. Harris, battery K, 4th artillery; Capt. Egan, company G, ('apt. Wright, company E, both of the 12th infantry, in the centre; and cavalry on the extreme left. While marching along the lake shore, just at the head of a long cave, about a mile and a half from Jack's camp, they encountered the first opposition, straggling be on a mile and a half from Jack's camp, they encountered the first opposition, straggling shots from the bluff at long range. The men deployed in open skirmish order and ad vanced slowly under such cover as the rocks afforded. On our right a gorge opened in ♦!' « ■»«« (j}Lf Lnr» It- r\-f vtrLinL ä*» —* - straggling shots, while a few fell around us from 3 the left point. Our skirmishers crept up, supported by the reserves, until we ar rived at short range, when a severe volley was fued from the bluffs, there evidently being 25 or 30 Indians posted there. The lire w as îiCarÿ and galling, and after standing for alxmt, fifteen minute* the order to charge was given, and the men sprang forward amid the most deafening yells from the Modocs. Such was the rapidity of the onslaught aud so uncxnected, that the troops were on them before they knew it, and in a few minutes we were masters of the situation and our brave boys behind the rocks resting at their leisure. General Gillcm had sent an order to Colonel Mason to stir them up on Jliis side, and he let into them with a vengeance, distracting their attention and materially assisting our troops. 'I'lie charge was a gallant one. In the meanwhile we extricated our wounded, four in number. None were killed. Capt. Eagan and his men fought gallantly, as did all engaged. Captain Eagan was wounded in the arm, but would not leave the field. E. O'Connor, private of battery M, 4th artillery, was shot in the leg, a llesh wound. Private J. Danley, battery K, 4th artillery, was shot in the forearm. Corporal E. Killick, battery K, 4th artillery, received a scalp wound. Private McManus, company E, 12th infantry, had his thigh crushed. P. McManus, of Mc Connel A McManus, merchants at Yreka, ventured within the advance line held by Captain Miller's men, who gallantly carried the bluff in such splendid style to the end of the reserve line, and he was slipt from the high bluffs aud left on the ground. The lines are 500 yards apart and the ground is uncov ered. When the mortars arrive the bluff will be shelled and his body recovered. It is supposed that lie was shot through the heel from the manner in which his mule is woun ded. Three shots were fired at kin?. At 2 p. m. the order was given to advance with the mortars, Major Thomas in command. Lieut. Cranston llowe, 4th artillery, sergent Hamer and 19 mep, composed the party, as gal laut a set as ever handled guns. At half past 4 o'clock the line deployed down the lake opposite Jack's camp and crossed the intervening open space on the double quick without receiving a shot. They are nov in readiness to charge on the bluffs when the mortars have done their work. The moitars arrived on the ground and had taken posi tion, and all was quiet until 5 p. m., when a sudden, heavy' volley rattled along Mason's line and continued for several minutes. It " as signalled, no one killed or wounded yet. A pack train aud the Warm Spring Indians have just arrived with 17 mules and 150 horses. At 5:10 the first shot was tired from the mortars, planting a shell fair in the bluffs. A few more shells were thrown, goin£ w'ell into the heart of the lava bed and apparently doing g 00 d work. Our line now extends trom under the bluff, where Jack's rave is. 1 1> the ledge to the south for nearly * milq the bluffs carried by Miller are nov held 1 wo ledges intervene between the nfcn an main plateau now, G p. in., and mortirs are : being moved forward, as our men arf ready jo scale the heights. Colonel Mason's line has not been broken, and by to-morrow we shall be with the Warm Spring Indians and have the red fiends encircled witfc but the take left them lor escape. Frorti appearances it would seem that the lower or lake front , yj e bluffs, have been cleared of Indians uy Colonel Mason, as our/men are steadily Advancing without receiviig a shot. They Wi H probably hold low in fie rocks for cover until morning. w in the the of the this ' bed that low The the Ftft this BY in a A regular courier arrived at Yreka to-night, l estertky morning while the signal officers were engaged between General Gillem's head quarters md Colonel Mason's camp, a Modoc got upon he ridge near Jack's cave and with a white rjg on a pole imitated the move ments of .tie signal officers, by w aving it to and fro. M\ Meacham's condition was more hopeful. Mi Dyer, the Commissioner who Was unhurt, 'elegraphs to Washington for instructions, saving, that it is useless to try any longer to mike peace with those Indians there. There is ao doubt but that the Modocs expected to get GJlem and Mason. General Gillem was expected to have been present at the council, but on the morning of the massa cre be w T as too indisposed to leave bis tent. It is now stated that both Generals Canby and Gillem and the Commissioners talked about Riddle's warning, but came to the conclusion that it was only a ruse on his part in order to delay negotiations. They had not the most confidence in Riddle's veracity, but on this occasion it seems that he was right in his supposition. San Francisco, April 17.—Headquarters Modoc Expeditiou, Lava Beds, April 15. Major General Schofield, San Francisco :— We have fought the Indians all day and driven them to the vicinity of their strong hold. Our loss is one officer, Lieut. Eagan, wounded, not seriously, and three enlisted men killed and nine wounded. We hope to surround them to-morrow. A. C. GILLEM, Co!. ConVdg. Further news is expected by courier to day. The remains of Gen. Canby arrived at Portland to-day. The funeral will be pri vate. To-morrow the body will lie in state at headquarters, and at 4 o'clock p. m. will be placed in the vault for further disposition. Lava Bed, April 10.—During the night the troops held the same position they occu pied at sunset yesterday evening. A hotly contested fight took place on Col. Green's left this morning. The Indians endeavored to get to the lake lot* water, but our troops succeeded in keeping them away. A dispatch - was received from Mason's camp at 7 o'clock this morning saying that some Modocs had passed out on his left and were on his flank and rear. During the night the mortar under command of Major Thomas kept up a fire on the Modoc camp, which very much annoyed the Indians, who could be heard yelling and shouting at an awful rate. At two o'clock this morning the troops under Col. Green were ordered to move for ward from the position they held during the night. The whole line started with a cheer, and before ten in the morning had reached the to}) of the ridge next to Jack's camp, which was so hotly contested yesterday, and which had been nearly deserted to-day. When our men gained this position, cheers could be heard along the whole line. Orders were then given to sweep the lava bed. A dispatch was sent to signal Capt; Barnard, ordering him in case the Modocs had got out on Col. Mason's left, to pursue them imme diately with cavalry and give them no rest. 10 o'clock.—Our troops have gaiued con siderable ground, and firing is becoming more frequent. The general impression is that the lava bed is ours. Orders have been given for Col. Mason to move his right forward as ra pidly as possible and join Col. Green's left. This will cut the Modocs off from water. From 10 to 12 o'clock there was considéra is firinw.frnny tb p the _!«.!<■*» is USlÇTfttPôf lb? Äcs'cSffl'J Have got can be heard out on Mason's left, as Indians in the vicinity of Jack's cave. to no the of ar in the vicinity of cave. The mortars, which have ceased since day light, have been ordered to a new position within eight hundred yards of the cave, and near the lake. At about 12 o'clock Cols Green and Mason's commands effected i junction which entirely cuts the Modocs from water. After this movement was ef fected occasional firing was heard at different parts of the line. It was decided not to push our men on the Indian stronghold, as we might lose many without killing an Indian If we could keep them from water they would have to leave their position, and we could not find them in a stronger one. Our losses in the two days fight have been five killed and ten w'ounded. The only officer yet wounded is Lieut. Eagan, a flesh w'ound in the left leg. He is doing well. Five In dians are reported killed. Of these w r e have some scalps. None of our killed and w r ounded have yet fallen into the hands of the Indians. It-is evident that if our men can hold their position on the lake shore Mr. Modoc will have to leave or surrender. There is a heavy fire of musket^ now r going on on the lake shore. The Indians are evi dently fighting for water. Every one who has seen our troops in action speak of them in the highest terms. San Francisco, April 18.—From the Lava Bed April 17: My dispatches of this morn ing stating the supposed death of Eugene Hovcy betw een this camp and Col. Green's line lias proved to be only too true. So soon as Sam. Watson, w'ho was in company with Mr. Ilovey, returned to our camp, at the southwest corner of Tule lake, a dispatch was sent by the signal officer to Colonel Green stating this fact. Soon after a dispatch was received from Colonel Green to Major Trim ble, ordering him to post his men in the most advantageous position. This was immedi ately done, and arms were issued to all the citizens, as also to 25 Warm Spring Indians, w ho arrived here since Donald McKay joined Colonel Mason's command on the 14th. After the Major had posted the. command, your correspondent took a position about 250 yards in advance of the picket line fir a ledge of rocks, and w'aited for.the approach of the Modocs, or orders from Major Trimble. After remaining in the rocks for an hour and a half, an orderly from the flag station visited the différent posts and told us that the cavalry were coming in on foot and not to mistake them far Indians. In about an hour there after (lierai Willem and his aid, Lieut. Jas. Rockwell, came in sight, bearing w ith them the medicine flag which has waived In front of Captain Jack's stronghold since his entry into the lava bed, and the scalp of.ßcar Faced Charley, w'ho was found wounded in the cave, as was also Si squaw, who was Rap tured and turned over to the War|n Spring Indiais. Our side lias now five scalps in Jy the scalp d this, morn in with the this fight.

Tine Modocs are now During the afternoon wè could from south of the Java bed, i w that the Modocs were traveling towan low Spring*, on the old emigrant road, or for the'countrf between Clear and Goose Lakes. The cavalry will start for the country east of the old emigrant road from Oregon, in the Ftft Crook country, east side of Tule kke, sometime this evening. I will accompany this command on this scout ' ■ of of is the and the and of The of ceed in ers town, and day is have to at It The three days' fighting resulted in a los s of five killed and ten wounded in both wings. The troops are in excellent spirits aud anxious to pursue the Modocs. A part of them occupy the lava bed now,aud will preyent any of the Modocs from returning. Everything is work ing admirable, aud we hope to chronicle the death of the last Modoc witliin a week. Too much praise cannot be awarded to the officers and men. I will send full particulars to morrow. San Francisco, April 18.—Gen. Schofield has ordered troops forward from Camp Hal leck, Camp McDowell, the Presidio, and Black Point, to reinforce Gillem.

Martin Conner, company G, 12th infantry, flesh wound in the leg. Should tlie Modocs escape from their strong hold and join the Pitt river or other larger tribes Schofield will assume command in per son. The coalition of Jack with the Pitt river Indians would give treble the present number of warriors. A dispatch from Yreka this afternoon re ports that Eugene Ilovey, a teamster of that place, was murdered by the Modocs while on his return from the front by a party of ten Indians who had escaped from the lava bed. Hovey's horses were also stolen. A courier is expected at Yreka at 3 o'clock with gov ernment and press dispatches.

He states that Gen. Garcia, commander of the Eastern Department, says that a reconciliation with Spain is impossi ble, except on a basis of independence. The only terms the Cubans have to offer are that the Spaniards shall go away and leave Cuba to take care of her own future. They have no faith in the permanent establishment of the Spanish republic. Cespedes expressed similar views. He also asserts that the Cu ban forces are in better condition now than ever before, and that their forces now consist of from 10,000 to 12.000 men. „.Their force, bowp-vo* " £ rea t fiuctua titfiis, uecreasm^ after defeat and inereasin« largely after a victory. They have lately re" ceived large accessions from tlie Spanish forces, w hich are mostly Cuban volunteer*, and Cespedes thinks that nearly all of these will eventually desert the cause of Spain, when the triumph of the Cubans shall be assured. The steamer Russia to-day took away $127, 000 in silver bars.
