The following was received to-day at San Francisco : Hdq'e Modoc Exmditios, 1 Camp South Tcli, April 18. r The day opened warm and still, but was ushered in by a roar of musketry, and an occasional booming of a Howitzer. Col. Mason's camp is at Hospital rock, on tbe north aide of Cept." Jack' posltion.dlrectly under that famous strong-hold. Col. Gil lem, who had been waiting for tbe arrival of bis stores and the Warm Spring In dians, issued orders yesterday for tents to I struck, and drawn In a compact place near the boipltal, and for tbe troops to be supplied with three days' rations and 100 rounds of ammunition. Next for tbe cavalry to be ready to move at - a.m. to-day, and for Col. Mason on the opposite side of the Lava,beds to move at tbe same hour on the enemy. Col. Perry and Llut. Cress, of the cavalry, were to move on a point oeyona tbe main cavalry, and conceal themselves till joined in the morning by the infantry and artillery. It was hoped wnen tne iai ter compnles left camp, the Modocs would obierve,and in attempt to cut tbem off, fall Into the hands of the cavalry. Their movement were faithfully exe cuted. I.ONO JIM, A Modoc, who was under guard as prUo- r.ar nf r cleaned at midnight, ue leaped past the guard and escaped, though many shots were fired at him. At aay light wo heard a fusliade on the opposite side of the Lava bed. 1 know Col. Meson's force, or hi skirmishers were engaged. At six o'clock wa heard tbe boom of Howitzer, and saw DUBLLS UURSTINO Over Capt. Jaek't camp. Atthistime the rock were swarming with Indians, and firing was rapid, lb plan of the battto was fron tbe North sldo. Col. Ma ion was to advance his command on tbt right, and theWarm Spring Indians on his left, clrcleing up along tbe ledge, united with the right of the troops from this side, leaving only the lakes for the Modocs' escapo, Lieut Rmh. was in camD In char ire or arms .munition. Capt. Tumbell of the ,, ,, 20 men wa. left In charge of the camp on this side. Col.

On our rlgbt agorgooponcd from ! tbe bluff) from tho right bank of which ' came straggling shot, while a few fell taround us. Fronuthe loll point our iklr ml. tin.. nn till ma arrived at abort rani?o. when a Sovero voney was fired from tho bluff, evidently there boing twenty-five or thirty Indians posted H ero. The flro was heavy. After standing 15 minutes an order for a charge waigiveri, and the men sprang forward amid the tnoit deafening yell from the Modocs. Such was tho rapidity of tbe onslaught, and so unexpected, tho troops weru on them before they knew It, mid in a few minutes was maslcr.of tho situation, and our brave boyl behind tho rocks retting at their leis ure. Col. Gillom sent an order to Col. Mason to stir thorn up on hi side, and he let Into them with vengeance, distracting ' their attention, and uiatorta'.ly assisting our troops. Tbe charge was a gallant one. Meanwhile wo extracted our wounded None kilted. Capt. Kgan fOUOIlT (JALLANTLY, So did all engaged. Capt. Kg on was wounded in tho arm, but would not leave the field. O'Conner, private of battery M tb artillery, was shot in tho leg, a flesh wound. Private J. Donly, battery K I th artillery was shot In tho arm. Corpornl E. Killisb battery K 4th artillery, scalp wound. I'rirato McManus, compa ny E, 12th infantry, thigh crushed. N. P. McManus of McConnoll 4 McManus, merchants at Yrokii, ventured within the advaaco line ahead of Capt. Miller, who carried the bluff under orders in gallant style. Tbe reserve lino was a short dis tance from tho high bluffs. Tbe lines are 160 yards apart, and the ground is uncovered. Whon tbu Modocs arrive the bluff will be shelled and be re covered At 2 p.m. orders were given to Advance Tbe mortars, -Moj. Thomas commanding. Lieut. Cranston Howe, fourth artillery and Sergt. Romor, compose a party of as gallant a set as ever bandied gun. At 4:30 a line was deployed down to the lake on tbe opposite sldo of Jack's camp. They crossed tbe intervening spaco "DOUULK QUICK" Without receiving a sbst. They aro now in readiness to charge on the bluffs when tho mortars bave done their work. The mortars have arrived on the ground. All quiet till 5:30, when a suddon and HEAVY VOLLEY Rattled along Mason' lino, and continued several minutes. No one killed or wounded. The pack train of the w'abm sPHixa'a ' Has just arrived with "u mules and 160 horses. At 7:50 p.m., the first sbot from tbe mortars planted shells fair in the bluff. A few SHELLS WIUL T11HOW.V, Going well in part of the Lsva bed, ap parently doing good work. Our line now extends from under the bluff where Jack's cave is, up tbe lodge nearly a mile. Tho bluff was carried by Miller, who had the bridge intervening between the men and the main plateau. Now six mortars are being forwarded, and we aro ready to SCALE TOE IlEiallT. Col. Meson's line has not buon broken. By to-morrow we shall be with the Warm Spring Indians, and bave tbe red fiends encircled with the lake left to them for escape. Reports of dead and wounded will not arrive to-day. From appearance it seems the lake shore and the bluffs have been cleared by the Indians. Col. Mason says our men are steadily advancing without receiving any shots, and they ill probably hold tbe low rocks for cover till morning. THIS MORNINO Tho Modocs' position Is the samo as tlioy occupied yesterday evening. A HOT CONTESTED TIOUT Took place on Col. Greon'sjo.t, this morn ing. Tbe Indians endeavored to reach the lake for water, but our troops kept kept them awy. A dlipatch was rocelved from Mason's camp this morning, saying some Modocs passed out on tho loft near bis flank, during tho night. Tho mortar under the command of MaJ. Tbomss kept up a flro on tbe Modoc camp,which kept them VEKY JIL'CU WOllRIEn. The Indians could be heard yelling and shoutinc at an awful rate. At - this a.m. the troops under Col. Green wero orderod to move forward from the position tnoy hAlil ilnrlnL- the nicht. Tbo whola lino started with cbcors. lloforo 10 o.m tint? hid reached the ton of tho ridge next to Captain Jack's camp, wmcu was so hotly contested yesterday. The Indians wure nearly dUtractei to-day when our men gained Ibis position. Oth' ars could be beard along the whole lino, Orders were then given to sweep the Lava bsd. A dispatch sent to Capt. Bernard, ordering him to CIU8K THE M0II0CA Who had got out on Col. Mason's left, and lu nunue tbem immediately with the cav .i.v and cive them no rest, n iw . . . . . ... vinplt this mornine our troops have gained conidorablo ground, and firing is becoming more gonoral. Tho Improsslon prevails that the Lava bods are ours. Orders have been given for Col. Mason to move his right iorward rapidly, possibly to Join Col. Green' left. This will CUT TUE MODOC OIT. From 10 to 12 o'clock there was con- lderablo firing from soutu lako. uniy a part of the Modocs could have got out on Uuon'i left, and Indians can bo heard In tbe vicinity of Jack's cavo. Tbe mortars which havo coased since daylight, bave been ordered to a ntw position, within 800 Green and Mason's a junction, which left MODOCd WITUOLT WATER. After this movotnent occasional firing Is heard at different parts of tbe line. It was decided not to push our men on the Indians stronghold, as We might lose many, .without killing an Indian. If we could keep them from water they would havo to leave their position. We could not find thorn on a stronger plan. OCR LOIX In two days havo been f killoJ, and 10 wounded. The only officer yet wounded is Lieut. Egan, a flish wound in the left leg. He is doln; well. Tho junction has been formed between Green's and Mason's left. Five Indians are reported killed. Of these WE .HAVE ROME SCAI.ra. None of our killed or wounded havo yet fallen Into the Indians' handf. It Is evident if our men can hold their position on the lake iLoro Mr. .Modoc will havo to leave or suireoder. Heavy firing of musketry near the Jako shore. Tbe In dians evidently are rioiiTiNO ron watku. Every ono who has seun our troops in action speak of thim in tho highest terms. ANOTHER COL'KXXIt ARRIVED. Yreka, April 1U. Castella, a special courier, arrived at noon. Left headquar ters at Lava bed at nine o'clock last nigbl. Yestorday tbo Modocs had a big flro in camp. .MaJ. Thomas DROfPED A 811 El. I. Into it, proving a frantic war whoop. After a sudden extinguishing of tbo tiro another shell was dropped in tbo same lo cality, followed by yells of pain. Tho Modocs then appeared and CHALLENGED THE SOLDIER To come out and fight, whon another sbcli was th answer. They were driven back in another fight. The Modocs GAVE UP The attempt to break through the lines and retired. Shots were fired at men who attempted to advance on them. At tl Col. Glllcm's command moved forward from the position gained Tucsday,and toon occupied tho ledgo next to Jack's camp. Mason then moved forward as rapidly as potiiible to Jorca a junction with Gillom, cutting tbo Modocs off from the lake, from their only source of water supply. Tbo junction was effected at noon. Tbo mortars are throwing shells in excellent range. Col. Green fell back bLind the lodge, awaiting tho Modocs should the shells drlvo them oit. After the firing, YELLS WERE VHHqUKNT. On tbe fifth shell there camo a raking fire, and a small party of men sprang out of a chasm and came into the liner,)armed with shoulder bullets. Our fulling back- was caused by tbo Modocs flanking, and opening a cross tire. Col. Miller attompted to form a junctioii with tho Warm Spring Indians, hut missed them, and as he swung down in tho chasm, tbe .Modocs sprang up and cut htm off with 13 men. Miller fortified hinself, and thoy fought for the linos till tbe mortars wero opened with a strong tire, till 4 p.m. When tho shells began falling in their midst thoy broko for tho cavo, dashing across tho ledge, losing 2 men, and one wounded. The lino was reformed and held their ground. 745 of Mason's men advanced on tho Indians seen on the bluff with a boavy fire. At eight o'clock this morn ing Cl. Groen's lino made a strong effort to unite Mason's loft and Groon's right. At nino this morning, Green's wholo line moved. Mason, at 9:45 signaled tho Modocs to loave tbo lava bed. Tbo cav alry was ordered to pursue, and at balf pasl eleven, half an hour later, thero was HEAVY FIRINO On tho Modocs' stronghold. At 1:30 tho Warm Spring Indians report throe more good Modocs, making four to-day. Nine p.m. A terrible tiro has just ceased. The Modocs tried to break through to the lake. It is the Intention to kocp tho line to prevent them from getting wator. There will be sovere fiehtlne beforo tho works aro carried. It is almost irnposslblo to tea an Indian. The Warm Spring Indians fought like heroes, ever ready to take any advantage. Ono killed. MISCELLANEOUS. THE SKWAHD MEMORIAL SERVICES. Alhany, April !.
