The Indians of this agency are alt en camped around Ouray's house. Not oae re port in fifty has one particle of truth, and the facts are exaggerated beyond reason.

New York, October 19.—A Washington special says: News comes .from Ohio that the Ewing men will certainly expose the du plicity and treachery of the leading men of •the Thurman faction. It is-openly charged ithat under the lead of John G. Thompson the Thurman managers arranged in a number of counties a general exchange of votes for Governor in return for the Republican sup port of such Democratic candidates for the racy. New York, October 17.—The Tunes' Phil adelphia special says : The friends of Bay ard are gratified and hopeful over Ewing's defeat as a complete extinguishment of the Ohio idea .and a vindication of Bayard's claims on the party. For the third or fourth time the soundness of his views against the inflation doctrines have been demonstrated He sails for home on the26tb, and his friends in Delaware and here propose a rousing re ception. The anti-Tilden elements in New York have been steadily giving encourage, ment tp the Delaware candidate, and have given assurances that they would make him entirely easy a9 to the necessary expenses of carrying on his canvass, should he receive the Presidential nomination. Grant Uoliie to Galena. San Francisco, October 19.—A Portland dispatch says : General Grant informed an Ortgonian reporter that he intended to go di rect to Galena from this coast.

New York, October 18.—The Tribune ' Washington special says: A well known Democrat, residing here, who passes his va cations in the iron regions of Pennsylvania, and has just returned from that section, re ports that the year has wrought wonderful changes. In the towns which twelve months ago were filled with idle and dissatisfies workmen there is now full employment for all who desire it. Some of the larger mil ls, which were istablished forty years ago, have now more work than at any period since they were erected. In some towns they are run ning day and night, a thing they did not do even during the war. The revival is not con fined to the iron interests, but extends to all other industries. All classes are satisfied and hopeful. This gentleman reports that the general effect of this revival is a serious dis advantage to his party, because many Demo crats among tbe quieter farmers and business men are arguing that it would be poor policy to change tbe state of the administration in the face of sueh a general promise of good times. The Fltz-Jolin Porter Cast. Washington, October 18.—As has been generally understood since the promulgation of the findings of the Schofield commission in the Fitz John Porter case, the fact that Porter's dispatches to General Burnside were made public by the latter has much if not every thing to do with Porter's conviction. Porter, regarding his dispatches to Burnside as private, was much freer in his comments on Pope than if he had supposed they were to be given out. Gen. Franklin, commander of the Gth army corps, has written a letter on the subject to an old army friend here, in which he uses language calculated to prompt General Burnside to demand an explanation. He says the late developments in the Porter case show how dangerous it is to trust a fool, however well-meaning a fellow he may be. Porter's dispatches to Burnside were friendly missives, and whatever he said about Pope was intended doubtless for his (Burnside) eye only. General Franklin continues : Nobody but a fool could have looked upon them in any other light, and it was the height of folly, indeed <af knavery, for Burnside to have transmitted them to Washington. Gen. Burnside is fussy, but he is courage ous. He gave the lie direct to Senator Conk ling ia executive session la9t winter, and his friends here say he will certainly call Gen. Franklin to account for this language. be the ed Political Affairs In Louisiana. New York, October 17.—The New Orleans Picayune of tbe 11th inst. says : It is an open secret in New Orleans that the National Republican party has resolved once more to carry Louisiana. The central men in Wash- ington have already sent their orders over the wires. Their party managers here were in- ; structed to put a tempting bait upon the hook., The State ticket is already fixed and the par- ish slate is in process of formation. The plan in both city and State is to nominate white men of respectability, of unblemished records and of conservative repute. Money is to be supplied for the deep coffers at head- quarters. The intention evidently is to take advantage of the disaffection in the Demo- cratic party as well as of all the various sources of local discontent. In other and shorter words, they are going to ask us to choose between good Republicans and<bad Democrats. -<n> n- of Destructive Fires. New York, October 19.—The damage by fire in the Exchange steam mills and grain elevator amounts to over $100,000. About $60,000 worth of grain was destroyed and $25,000 worth of machinery.

Pollock telegraphs to the Commissioner of Indian Affairs from Denver, Col. : Tbe Gov ernor and leading citizens here unanimously affirm that the Indians must be removed from the State or be exterminated by the State, if not by the federal forces.

San Francisco, October 21.— A Tucson (Arizona) dispatch says: Advices from Me silla by mail say that among those killed by the Indiana in New Mexico is W. C. Hinds, U. S. Collector. A large body of Indians are reported to be concantrating between Colo rado and Hillsboro. It is currently reported that a company of Indian scouts have deser ted our forces and joined the enemy. A Silver City (New Mexico) letter says of the slaughter on the 18th : On arriving at the scene of the tragedy we found 16 persons dead, and we buried them. Five others known to have been killed we have not found. No Indians were about, and it is reported that they have gone to the Membres mountains. About 150 Apache scouts, lately with Colonel Morrow in New Mexico, have returned to Arizona, their time of enlistment having ex pired. They refused to re-enlist. This pro bably gave rise to the rumor that tbe Indian scouts had deserted and joined the enemy. Governor Wallace is now at Los Vegas. It is now believed that Victoria's band is trying to go through by Burro mountains to Mexico. Col. Morrow says he has troops enough to whip Victoria, but that it will take two months to do it. He needs a couple of light howitz ers. Tolunteers are being raised at Mesilla and Los Cruces. A company numbering 30 men were massacred by 100 Indians, only one man named Hickey escaping. Tbe stages for the east leave regularly as though there was no trouble. The Uic Indians. Los Pinos, Col., Oct. 18.—General Adams, special commissioner of the Interior Depart ment to effect the release of the women and children captured at the White River Agency, accompanied by Count Dornhoff, of the Ger man Legation at Washington, reached Ou ray's house last night and came to the agency this morning. He leaves immediately for White river under escort of fifteen Utes, commanded by Chief Saperno. Douglas is encamped about 100 miles from here. If the women and children are given up he will probably return in six days. Chief Ouray is doing all in his power to assist Adams, and there is a fair prospect that the women will be immediately surrendered on his reaching the Indian camp. A runner who came in yesterday reports them safe and kindly treat ed by Douglas. its to ; Indian Kiot. San Francisco, October 21.—The steamer California, from Sitka, has arrived at Port Townsend.

Washington, October 21.— 1 The Supreme Court decision in the case of the State of Tennessee vs. J. W. Davis : This case arises out of an indictment in the Tennessee State court of defendant Davis, deputy collector of internal revenue, for the murder of James B. Hayne, a citizen of Tennessee, in August, 1878. Davis filed his petition for & certiorari in the U. S. Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, alleging among other things that the killing was done in self-defense to save his own life, and that at the time of the act for which he was indicted was committed he was an officer of the United States, to wit : A deputy collector of internal revenue, and was engaged in the discharge of his official duties. Upon return of the certiorari , the State of Tennessee, by its Attorney General, moved that the case be remanded to the State court, in which the indictment was found. The motion was heard before Hon. John Baxter, Circuit Judge, and Hon. C. L. Trigg, District Judge, presiding. The Judges were divided in opinion upon the following questions, which they have ordered certified to this court for adjudication : First. Is an indictment of 'a revenue offi cer found in a State court for murder under the facts alleged in tbe petition for removal in this case, removable to the court uuder 643 revised statutes of the United States ? Second. If removable from the State court is there any mode and manner of procedure in trial prescribed by act of Congress ? Third. And if not can the trial of the guilt or innocence of the defendant be had in the U. S. Circuit Court ? The main question to be discussed is in the words of Attorney General Devins' brief, substantially the same as that which has for over half a century been debated in Congress and before tbe country, viz : Whether the United States constitution is a frame of gov ernment created by the people and acting di rectly from and upoh the individual, or is it merely a compact or league of sovereign States ? Those who insist that the genera? government is purely federal and not national its character, are logically compelled to deny the right to remove any cause from the State to the federal court, and to declare the act of 1789, section 20, unconstitutional, because if any right of removal exists it must extend alike to civil and criminal cases, and the ex tent to which it shall be exercised whenever tne federal laws or their execution is con cerned, is a question of expediency and not of power. The Attorney General of Ten nessee, in behalf of the State, maintains— first, that the words "criminal prosecution," section 643 revised statutes, have reference to acts of revenue officers therein declared to be offenses, and not to prosecutions for morde* j * which ta not an offense by the revised ^ tWeB j except upon the high 6eas, etc. ; second, that if Congress intended by s^ Bec tion to re move trials from State to 'federal courts, the act is unconstitutional* There is neither an expressed nor implied power in the constitu tion giving to the federal courts jurisdiction of crimes which are offenses alone against the State ; third, if the section w'ere constitu tional, the U. S. Circuit Courts could not try a case of muder, because they have no com mon law jurisdiction in criminal cases, and because Congress has not by legislative act made murder a crime, or fixed tbe punish ment, except for murder upon the high seas, in the District of Columbia, in forts, arsenals and dockyards. The argument will be continued to-mor rew. in an Important Mining; Snit. New York, October 21.—Before Judge Choate, to-day, in the U. S. Circuit Court, in equity, a motion was made by the defendants in a suit of the Emma Silver Mining Com pany (limited) of London against the Emma Silver Mining Company of New York—Tre nor W. Park, H.

The latter, however, plead in bar the judgment brought against Park and Baxter, the original owners | of the Emma silver mine, and which judg ment was in their favor. All the issues raised and disposed of on previous trials of relief asked for by the plaintiffs. The argu ment will be continued to-morrow. Ex-Min ister Stoughton represents the plaintiffs and Jno. E.

Wm. Pitt Kellogg) after his claim to the seat he now occupies has been already deliberately acted upon ; that we do solemnly and earnestly, but most respectfully protest in the name of Louisiana against such con templated action as a grave violation of prin ciple and as a proceeding likely to be produc tive of the most mischievous consequences hereafter.

Cooper pleaded guilty to both charges and was remanded for sentence next Thursday. It is possible that some of the prisoner's assets may revert to his San Francisco creditors, if it can be proved that the funds came from thence. Day of flemelhempstead, who loved the pris oner like a brother, when he gave evidence against Cooper, burst into tears. A. J. Kane, an American, who knew the prisoner when he was an ensign on the staff of Admiral Lee, of the North Atlantic squadron, during the war, recognized tbe prisoner in Newgate.
