FIRST SESSION. Senate. Washington, February 21. -Dawes, pre- j sented a petition on behalf of the Indians, ! and said that Congress should recognize the universal demaud of wealthy and intelligent citizens for the just treatment of the Indians. ln matters of property they were treated w-ith greater consideration than white men. He wanted to have done with sentimentality and let the government relations to the Indi ans be put upon a rational and practical basis and lie 1 letter understood. Referred.

I How H ND'S UP. • ■— — . Circumstances Have Effect on Men's Mind. Catch a rat in a trap and he will fight. ; Trap a man, and—well, you can't rely on him. It is according to tie trap. In the heavy stage coach as we roll out of Lead ville, says a frontier letter, are seven men. One is an army officer, who has half a dozen scars to prove his bravery. Cut off from his command on the plains last summer by a score of Indians, he intrenched himself and fought the band oft' till help arrived. Two ot the others are desperadoes, who hac e kill ed their man. Three ol the others are stal wart miners, each armed with two revolvers, and t} look as if they would prove ugly j t .„ sU J K ia » #gh ,. The seventh man might do some shooting on a pinch, but he hopes there will be no pinch. In the crowd are ten revolvers, two : derringers, three repeating rifles, and four or i five bowie knives, and there is perfect good ; feelin g as tlie stage rolls along. It is tacitly j understood that the army cafTtain is to as-, same command in ease the coach is attacked, and that all are to keep cool and fire to kill, It is 10 o'clock in the morning. The win dows arc down and the passengers are smok ing and talking and seeking for comfortable positions. The coach has just reached the top of a hill, when every horse is suddenly pulled up. "If it's a b'ar we'll have some 1'un" growled one of the miners, as he put his head out of the window. "D it's a robber, giu me the first pop at what SÄ was, j w ben a wiry little shap, about five feet six inches tall, with black eyes and hair, clean face, »d append at theMhand door with a cocked revolver in either hand, and said : "Gents, I m sorry to disturb you, but I've got to make a raise this morning. Please leave your shooters and climb down here, one at a time.'' It was sudden. It was so sudden that it took ten seconds to understand the drift of his remarks, Then every eye turned to the r i g ht hand door, and the two revolvers held by a second robber were seen at the open window. It was a trap. The rats were caught and would they fight ? "Gents, I'm growing a leetle impatient," continued the first robber, "and I want to see the procession liegin to move. " Let's see. The Captain was to lead us, and we were to be cool, and fire to kill. But the captain was growing white around the mouth, and nobody had a weapon in hand, The rats were not going to fight. One of the miners opened the door and descended, and the other six humbly followed. The seven were drawn up in line across the road, and while the robber held his shooter on the line, he coolly observed to his partner : ets was dropped into William's hat. Four gold watches, two diamond pins, a telescope, a diamond ring, a gold badge, and $1,200 in caeb chänged hands inten minutes. Nota! "Now, William, yon remove the weapons tram the coach, aud then search these gen t lernen." As William obeyed, every victim was or dered to hold his hands above his head, and whatever plunder was taken from his pock man had a word to say. The driver of the eoacli did not leave his seat, and was not in terfered with. When the last man had been j)l under ed, the genteel Dick Turpin kiudly observed : "You are the most decent set of men 1 ever robbed, and if times wern't so blasted hard, I'd ma ke each of you a present of $10. Now, then, climb back to your places aud the coach will go on." The crowd "dumb" and the vehicle re sumed its j 0U rney. Not a weapon, or a time piece, ot a dollar had been saved. Seven well armed men had been cleaned out by two, aud not a shot tired or a wound given. Each man took his seat without a word. Mile after mile was jiassed in silence, and finally the seventh man—the man who might fight on a pinch, but didn't—plain tively suggested : "Can't some of you gentlemen think of a few remarks which would lie apropos to the occasion No one could, ami the silence was renewed, Bismarck as a Patient. [American Register of Paris.] It may be interesting to many of our readers, says the Berliner Tagblatt, to take a look at the most powerful statesman of the a ^ e ' * l,e ''Iron" Chancellor, on his weak side, oemely, as a patient. The Princes chid trouble, as is well known, is a painful ner vous affection, which the jdiysicians call "sciatica," and which they greatly dread on rp . , ( . , J.IIC I rinCCS cmtl account of its obstinacy. Besides this, the Chancellor suffers at times from an inflam-1 matory swelling of the veins in the feet, and, like all other mortals, occasionally from lighter indispositions—colds and indigestion. It seems that the patient is as inconsistent re garding the methods of his treatment as he is in other matters. With the same feeling of "absolute indifference" which, according to his own words, he manifests in certain political topics, he also deals with the ex-1 • • .. .. j. , Tr I lgencies ot the medical science. Homeopathy or allopathy—it is all one to him, as long as ' he believes one or the other will cure him. It has even happened that he allowed him self to lie treated by an allopathic physician, and soon after by a homœpathist. When at Friedriclisrnh, he sends for Privy Sanitary Councilor Dr. Dohn, of Hamburg, who is an allopath. At Varzin, when medical afcten dance is needed, the physician, also an alio- j path, in the adjacent town of Schlawe, is ! applied to. When at Kissingen the Prince consults the well known Dr. Diruf, also an adherent of the old school. During his stay at Berlin, however, he inclines to homœ pathic treatment. Since 1870 the Chancellor, lany attended by bamtarj Councilor Dr. Zwingenberg, one of the most noted homœ wn An 1 n 4 1 An Îm V a«1 « n pathic représentatives in Berlin. Neverthe- j less (at nil pvpnts 10701 thp fTinnrpl- ' less, (at all eients Delore 1H7U) tne Uiancel lor also frequently consulted the present Director of the Imperial Sanitary -Bureau, Dr. Struck (allopath). At present Dr. Zwin- j genberg seems to be the Chancellor's only medical adviser, who visits the patient twice a day and has frequently been sent for from Yarzin as well as Friedrichsrub. Previously Prince Bismarck had put himself in the hands of the late Dr. \ehsemeyer, and he fore him in those of Dr. Kleinschmidt, occa sionally, also, Dr. Mertens, all of them homœpathist^. The Prince I /» .. I ----i---- — --- - ----- bas frequently j expressed the opinion that he is less con cemed about the mode of treatment than ! about the msult of the same. At times he so far as to insist upon lieing restored t0 health and activity within a specified time ; if the physician succeeds in this the Prince is content, but rarely or ever has a word ot appreciation for the brilliant achieve ments of his medical attendants. Thus it ^ Iron Chancellor, even in private life, stands on as completely real istic ground) and emulates as realistically concerning his health, as he does in his pecu bar policy. Louis Napoleon's Courage. [From Senior's Conversations.] September 1860.—I asked Changarnier his opinion as to the courage of Louis Napoleon. Changarnier : It is great in theory, small in practice. At Strasbourg, when the regiment on which he depended refused its support, he ran and was found in a state of abject terror hiding under a carriage. In the Bou logne attempt, when he had got half-way across the channel he became alarmed, and wished to turn back. The people about him called champagne, and kept him to his pur pose by making him half drank. As he ap i p roac iied, and no friends appeared, his ala: returned. The ftrst troops that met him m were under the command of a sensible old ! officer > who ' when he saw the strange pro instead of joining him, summoned him to surrender. Vanqueril had said that at Strae j bourg Louis Napoleon had not dared even to fire a pistol in his own defense. He recol Jected this mot, kept a pistol • in his hand and fired at the officer, but that his hand shook so that though the man was not five paces off he missed and wounded a poor cook, who, in his white apron, was standing a t a door to see what was going on. Louis 1 Napoleon turned, ran into the sea and got into a boat. A boat from the shore pulled after him. He gave himself up, begged them u ot to hurt him and said that he had 200, 000 francs in his pocket which he would give them. He was landed and begged M. Adam the Maire, to take the -.'00,000 fiancs. Adam said he would take care of them, but, with ; business-like habits, chose to count them ÏÏÏJÂÂ "th£ we re fouud to be ouly 120,000. This sum when he was on his trial before the peers, he j claimed, and the cruel gemment of Louis ! phiiippe let him have them, Senior : Did he show courage at Magenta ? j Changarnier : He never crossed the Ticino, ; jfe was smoking in a house during the whole \ time. At Solferino, where he was two miles iu the rear, he did not move or give an order; j but he smoked fifty-three cigars. We know ! this, as he always carried with him little boxes, each of which contained fifty cigars, o ne was quite exhousted and three had been : taken out of the other. Once a spent ball came near him; but that was the only oc i casion on which he could be considered as | nn der fire. I saw a letter from one of the Cent-Suisse to his mother : "You need be under no anxiety about me. 1 am with the Emperor, and, therefore, ont of danger." In ; f ac t, none of them were hit. ! ---—---- i An Editor's Expedient. j } England can boast ol one editor, at least 1 who might be trusted to ran a country news ! paper ia the United States. In his youth i Sir Richard Phillips edited and published a paper in Leicester, England, called the .Ber ald. One day an article appeared in it headed "Dutch Mail," and added to it was the announcement that it had arrived too late for translation, and so had to lie set up in the original. The wondrous article drove half England crazy, aud for years the best Dutch scholars squabbled over it without being able to arrive at any idea of what it meant. The famous "Dutch Mail" was, in reality, a column ol "pi. The story Sir Richard tells of the particular "pi lie had a whole hand in, is this : i "One evening, before one ot our publiea tions, my men and boy overturned two col «mns of the paper in type. We had to get ready in some way for the coaches, which, at m the morning, required four or five hundred papers. After every exertion, we were short nearly a column, aud there stood on the galley a tempting column of "pi." It suddenly struck me that it might lie thought i Dutch. I made up the column, overcoming j would be explained. the scruples of the foreman, and away went the country edition with its jihilological puzzle to weary the honest horticultural reader's head. There was plenty of time to set a column of jilain English for the lo cal edition." Sir Richard tells of one man whom he met at Nottingham, who hail for thirty-eight, years preserved a copy of the Leicester Her ald , in the hope that some day the letter . un( , t0 j iover j u a s ii V ery transfiguration there, uutil the outward liook is but a body, j ■ and its soul and spirit are down to you, aud P 0f<se8S y° ur memory like a spirit.-[Beecher.
