A Xew Morj of (lie Little Big Horu
A ietter written by a sergeant in the Sixth
infantry, dated Yellowstone Depot, July 15,
fas the following interesting points in relation
to the Custer massaore :
"The iuipressiou prevails that Custer was
giveu away treacherously by a halt-breed guide
h?- had with him, by ihe name of Billy Cross,
aud every circuuTstauoe, so far as ascertained,
tends to confirm the impression that this guide
had an understanding with the Indians beiore
hand, aud treacherously led Custer's command
into a snare, where they were all massacred,
with the exception of one Crow scout and two
guides, named respectively Girard and Jackson.
Cross, with the Indian scouts that oame from
Lincoln w.ih Custer, deserted the command
shortly after the fiaht began, aud nothing was
ln-ard of them uutil they came into this camp,
about 100 miles?four days'travel?from i he
scene ol conflict. Hud they joined Gibbou or
lieuo, the latter of whom was in close proxim
ity and the former no more thau twenty five or
thirty miles away, and informed the one or the
other of Cus er's situation, the lives ot at least
some of the brave men who perished u.iu'1 t

Uave been saved.
"The guides came in two distinct parties.
Cross and one party about two o'clock iu the
afternoon of the 28th of Juoe, and another
party, ot about niue or teu more, leading sur
plus ponies, in about five hours after. When
their different stories Were compared they were
I't.uud to want hartuony iu several very essen
tial particulars. Most of the Iudians' cartridge
trill?, were full, aud uone of theuj had expend
ed inure than two or three rounds. This, iu
connection with their contradictory stories, cre
ated in the minds of many, myself amnDK the
number, doubts as to their courage aud honesty
toward Custer ou this ocea-ion, aud I for om;
liuvi it difficult to eradicate this impression from
my mind. Most all of th-'m are m *re boys,
aud one of them gave evidence the other day
that he was d 'ticieot io courage, and he is
doubtless a fair criterion by which to judge the
whole. Parties who have arrived from Terry
hiuce with dispatches inform us that the men
who were loitunato euough to escape this
dreadful carnage, the Crow soout especially,
clurge these Indians with cowardice, and say
they rati away at the beginning of the fight.
"They also say that the night before the fight
this Cross was sent out to scout and reconnoi
tre aud was gone "teu or eleven hours; that he
returned in the uioruiug and informed General
Cu-ter that the village was a small one and he
would encounter but very little difficulty in ob
taining au easy victory. Custer, who is said
by his men to be very impulsive, without first
satisfying himself as to the truth or falsity ot
the report, mounted his command and gave
the command forward. The command Cime iu
si?ht of the village within au hour and a half
and he theu gave the order to charge it, which
was gallantly done, but no resistance was met
with until they arrived on tho other side of the
village location, when they received a terrific
volley, which put an end to many a noble fel
low's existence, and tbe troops then found
themselves in the eeutre of a large camp of
uiauy villages and completely surrounded by
the red devils.
"At this spot the grass aud brush were found
tied aud knotted so as to impede the progress
ut the horses, and the Indians and some of the
villages were screened from view by a sort of
wicker breastwork of willow brush, behind
which theso red sleuthhounds of hell Cuu'd
quietly pick off any of the soldiers without eu
duugeriug their own precious hides. All re
treat b-ing cut off there was nothing for it but
to forward. Custer then designated a knoll for
Ins command to rally at, whicti they did, break
ing through the bronze wall of savages like a
streak ol barbed lightuiog aod gained the k:ioll,
where they made the last stand, all hands
lighting desperately, as men only can fight
whose lives are at stake ami where the fight
tii-cuue a hand to hand conflict.
'The squaws made themselves conspicuous,
kiioi-kiug in the fkulls with a heavy club with
a stone at the end of it, and mutilating in div
er< other ways, too siekouing to mention, every
-oldier that fell.
"The breastwork referred to, aod the kuot
t '.i ura^s especially, presented every indication
of having been ficshly douc, and that the Iu
diaus were fully informed aud aware ot Custer s
inteutious toward them, and had accordingly
undo every necessary preparation for giving
hitu a warm reoeptiou. Everybody was seal pod
aud otherwise murilated, excepting General
busier and Corperal Tiemau, whose scalp was
partly off aud who had tbe sleeve of his blouse
with the chevron uplaid ovor it in a peculiar
mauner. This enabled a good many men of
the Seventh cavalry, who are here dismounted,
to detect one of the participants in the fight on
the Indiaus' side iu the pcrsoo of one Hiiu-io
the Face, who was io the guard hou-^e last wiu
tiTaud chained to a corporal, also a prisoner at
the time. Njt even a button was removed
tr<>iu Custer's uuiform, while his brother aod
'ho rest ot?the officers were terribly mutilated.
H no's commaud was several miles away from
tbe seeno of Custer's tight, but was not aware
ot his having been engaged uutil alter the bat
tle was all over aud Geueral Gibbon had arrived
with his commaud to re-enforce him. Io the
tiuiciy arrival of Gibbon with his "Dough
B iys,' is due the salvation of Reno aud his
<- >uiiuand, for they were also surrounded and
lighting desperately and with very slight hope
o! ever com tug out alive.
"To the coolness aod bravery and foresight
ot Co'ouol Benteen, of the Seventh cavalry, at
the beginuiuK of Reno's engagement, is due the
salvation of Reno and the greater part ot his
^?juiujaod. lie now occupies the very enviable
iK'Mtiou ot idol iu the esteem of those who were
"cined with him aodjjamo out with their
lives.
"One of the wounded of Reno's command,
w'>o i? in the hospital here, says that at one
lui<\ dunug the fight they heard the advance
>'U:>ded on the trumpet from Iudians; they all
[;'s u;>, thinking it waa Custer come to rein
';;r^e them, and cheered lustily; when the In
^iis let forth a derisive yell at them, fired a
terrible volley and made a charge which they
r,'puUe.i, as they did several others that were
uiade in rapid succession. The Indian loss
Was very heavy, aod it is said that after the
^utle was over, where Gibbon's aod Reno's
^uiLuanda were burying the killed, they were
'"Uud piiej Up lite cordwjod, so effectite was
the fire of' the soldiers. Many more of the In
diana wero tied to their ponie9 and thus th? ir
bodies were carried off, and others were carrifd
away by their friends.
"The carbines of our cavalrymen, with
breeches .similar to our infantry guns, are rep
resented to bo almost useless Htter the fifth aad
sixth round has been fin-d from them, the
spring refusing to throw the shell, thus neces
sitating the use of the ramrod to ejcei it.
'"Great complaint is also made of the cart
ridges, many of them having hardly powd >r
enough in them to force the ball from the sock
et of the shell.
"There is quite a number of white men with
the Indians, Eiglish having been spoken in
their ranks plentifully during the engagement.
Oae of the Indians that was shot by Reno's
men attracted peculiar attention, and upun go
iog up to hioi he was found masked, aud upon
removing the mask the features of a white man
were disclosed, with a long, gray, patriarchal
beard. This individual was seen several times
by Gibbon's command, in charge of small par
ties of Indiaus, but they could never gut close
enough to him to make his acquaintance, so
they took him to be an ind'an sporting a false
whisker for a blind. But when he was point
ed out on the field, dead, they recognized him
as the same individual. A bugler who was
dishonorably discharged in 1SGU, from the Seo
ood infantry, is said to be with them, aud it is
supposed he is the one who blew the call of the
trumpet."
