Bell, M. A., an English engi neer and a member of the expedition sent out in 18C7-8 to gurvey the Knnhae Pacific railroad, in a book entitled "New Tracks in North America," gives a f;raphic account of a light with the Buf ulo Indians: The itiitlulo Indians are probably the finest horsemen in the world. Accustomed from their child hood to chase the buffalo, they live half their time in tlie Huddle. No reins are used to guide their horses, but they press with their heels on whichever sida they want to turn. Both hands and arms are constantly free to nse the rirle, the bow or the spear at pleasure. These men were splendidly armed with rilles for long ranges, bows and arrows for short istances, and spears and tnmukawks for hand-to-hand combat. They were irlitl v straiiDed to their saddles, bo that they could bend down at either side of the horse, and completely nine ineir bodies from view as well as from the bullets of the enemy; and when shot they did not fall to the ground, bnt were carried on tne neia uy ineir pomes, unless the latter were disabled also, Leading on the red-skins could dis tiuctly be seen the tiill warrior, with long lance, on the wmte horse, who was so conspicuous in the fight of Saturday, As the little 'column advanced, the la dians commenced signaling by walking their horses in a circle, while the chief made signs to some warriors out of view br means ot a shining instrument or mir ror, which flashed brilliantly in the sun The savages had evidently not expected to find so large a body to meet them, or to see an additional line of tents and wacons added to th tort. All Ibis signaling seemed to result in the gradual wunurawui 01 me biluckimx puriy iruiu the immediate vicinity of the fort behind a ridge some two miles distant; where as it turned out, a much larger number were waiting in concealment, ai tne first cry of Indians!" we were all out of our tents, ritle in hand. My friend Walter llinchman. Cnley. our carpenter, and myself starteS immediately for a ravine aooui two mues on on me rigni, which formed a covered approach of six miles or more in length in the direction of our camp. General Wright very wisely detained the rest of the party in camp to defend it in case of attack wlulo the cav alry were away, rinding no Indians advancing along the ravine, we returned to breakfast, feeling it undesirable to go further unprotected and alone. Iwo hours of great suspense followed, which was not muchrelieved by the appearance . , r .i.. am f ...: , i " r .1 ' who came to get an ambulance for the dead and wounded. The following is an account of this en (rnireinent: No soonej had the cavalry followed the retiring ba'd beyond the ridge, exchang ing ahnts and skirmishing all the way, than on either Hank two fresh bodies of warriors suddenly appeared. They halted far a few minutes: a rtowerful-lookillg warrior, fancifully dressed, galloped along- their front shouting out directions and then, like a whirlwind, with lances I poised and arrows on the string, they rushed on the little band of fifty soldiers i The skirmishers fired and it'll back on the line, and in an instant the Indians were among them, alow the tide was turned. Saddle were emptied, and the soldieri forced back over the ground toward the fort. The bugler fell, pierced by five arrows, and was instantly seised by a powerful warrior, who, stooping down from his bor.e, hauled him up before him. coolly stripped tha body, and then, smashing the head 01 bis naked victim with his tomahawk, threw him on eround under his horse's feet. On the left of our line the Indian, pressed heavily, cutting off five men, among them Sergeant Frederick Wylyams. With this ;t, force, this poor fellow held ont nobly ?. , . i -n.j j i ' till his horse was killed, and one by one the soldiers felL selling their Uvea dearly. The warrior who appeared to lead the band was, up to this time.very conspicuoua in Ui.CJht, dashing back and lortnon His gray horse, and by his actions setting an example to nil fcsrriors. In the melee, however, one of our cavclry men was thrown to the ground by the nerce nes of the Indian onslaught, when this leader, who I kal e since learned was the famous cneyenne wm cniei rvoman N'." attacked the prostrate man with his Corporal Harris, of O com pany, was sear mm, ana struct notnan Vj .v.. i k;h k. kt.i m9 rain mrnm uu uim, uu, u no uiu ao, the (ailhful "Spencer'' of ihe Kirpo rai met his breast, and, with the Mood pouring from hi mouth, "Roman Nose" fell forward on h.t boras turvex a'ain to BEE MEMPHIS, lead his "dog-soldiers" on the war path. By this time it was more than evident that on horseback the soldiers were no match for the red-skins. Many of them had never been opposed to Indians before, many were raw recruits, and their horses became so dreadfully fright ened at the yells and the smell of the savages as to be quite unmanageable. So Captain Barnitz garo the order to dismount. I When the dismounted" cavslrv betrao to pour a well directed Volley from their Spencers, the Indians for the first time wavered and began to retire. For two hoars Captain Barnitz waited with his thinned ranks for another advance of the Indians, but they prudently held back, and, alter a prolonged consulta tion, retired slowly with their dead and wounded beyond the hills to paint their faces black and lament the death of one of the bravest leaders of their inhuman race. J I have seen in days gone by sights horrible and gory death in all its forms of agony and distortion but never did I feel the stekening sensation, the giddy, fainting feeling that came over me when I saw our dead, dyingaud wounded after this Indian light. A bandlul ot men, to be sure, but with enough wounds upon them to have slain a company it even I v distributed. The bugler was stripped naked, and five arrows driven through him, while his skull was literally smashed to atoms. Another soldier was shot with four bullets and three arrows, his scalp was tftVn oil and his brains knocked out A third was riddled with balls and ar rows; but they did not succeed in getting his scalp, although, like the other two, he was stripped naked. James Douglas, a Scotchman, was shot through the body with arrows, and his left arm was hacked to pieces. lie was a brave fellow, and breathed out his life in the arms of his comrades. Another man, named Welsh, was killed, but all subsequent search failed todiscoverliis remains. Sergeant Wylyamslay dpad beside his horse; and as the fearful picture first met my gaze, I was horror-stricken. Ilorse and rider were stripped bare of trappings and clothes, while around them the trampled, blood-stained ground showed the desper ation of the struggle. ; IXDIGNAM CADETS. How the Recent Conrt-Mnrllnl le- clslou was Keceivedat West Point. Wsst Poixt, November IS. j The greatest excitement thnt has re lieved the usual routine of military monotony at this post, since the battle with dipper weapons between cadet J. W. Wilson and (colored) cadet J. W. Smith, occurred to-day when the news was received of the War Department s action on the verdict of the recently convened general court-martial. Had the accused been sentenced to be leu out and shot, public astonishment could scarcely have been grenter. The gene ral expectation was that if Smith es caped dismissal, he would be severely reprimanded, and no one wns prepared to hear such a decision as has been made. Tl cadets are almost all indig nant and disanpointed. It does not seem that they desire to injure the ac cused, nor to glory in his punishment; but, they assert that he has been guilty or prevarication and inconsistency; that his cadet honor is sullied, and thnt, black or white, as he may be while a cadet uniform, be is identified with the corps and- institution. And that now he is released from all penalty and responsibility for the past, and in a degree promoted to the rank of a martyr to color and race, be fore his sympathizers in the nation at large, they are mortified beyond mea sure. Kvery one in the vicinity of the court-martial was convinced that, with the single exception ot (ienerul How ard. the court intended to place a pen altv. eaual to the gravity of the ollenxe, against Smith's name. The cadets feel that Smith has not been justified, and they, as a body, have been wronged. The sentiment against Smith is more unanimously bitter and intense than ever. The previous adopted resolution to taboo any in the corps who afliliated in any way with Smitn will be more riiridlv observed. Should anosksar colli sion occur, it is plain that the result would be more serious than before. Had he been reprimanded, and his action de clared guilty, the feeling of prejudice would be greatly mollified. With one or two exceptions, the ofiicera, althougl they dare not say so, share the same feeling with the cadets. Japan and the Japanese.? A street called the Tekodia is the Broadway of Yeddo. It is twenty miles long, and very much crowded. But there is a vast difference in the appearance of .,. -i i.o n'i tne two xuorougiiiares. Aiiern are uu vehicles in use in Japan, and the pave ments extend from one side of the street to the other. No provision is made for the passage of carriages, omnibuses and wagons, lor there are none in existence, and persons on foot take possession of the whole highway, xne enure metrop olis is Duilt oi woon, ano one aweuing is a representation of all. A Japanese house, at the first glance, resembles a child's toy house on a large scale. The floor is raised about two feet above the earth, and there is a covered porch in front, resting npon the bare izround. After entering the porch you teo ud into the house, always leaving your shoes behind you. It is considered a very great breach ot propriety to enter a dwelling without removing one s boots. As they wear only sandals, covered with a leathern thong, which they can shufHe on or off in an instant, this custom is of but little moment to the natives, but for eigners find it a very troublesome one. The porch answers as a depository for shoes, and, in passing a bouse, tne nuin ber of visitors may be known by count ing the number of pairs of sandals on the porch. When the walls of a house are up it consists of bat one large room, which is then cut up by partitions, which are nothing more than sliding screens that close up into each other, in a tasiuon that admits of one apartment being di vided into a dozen distinct ones instantly. There are no chimneys attached to the houses, and they contain no beds, chairs, or tables. The floor are covered with a aeries of clean bamboo mats or cushions, each six feet by three, and nicely bound ith red or blue tape. 1 hey are slatted with lizht wood or moss, and are soft and yielding to pressure as the heaviest Brussels velvet. 1 heae mat til in with each other as regularly as the squares on a chess board, aud the whole floor is kept clean and is dusted as often as the mahogany sideboard in the house of a Dutch burgher. No fleck of dirt is ever allowed to rest upon the polished surface of the matting, and to step npon it with a pair of hoots would be a greater insult than to make a footstool of a seven hun dred dollar piano. The family sit npon the maUiiiK all day. with their legs bent under them in a shape that would give any foreigner incurable raralysis in fif teen nunulea, and they sleep upon it at night. A Japanese pillow Is a curiosity in u way. It is nothing but a rmaer ol cradle, broad enough to stand alone. with a semi-circular depression on the upper side. The Japanese lie full length on the floor, place not their bead but their neck in the crecnt-hped hollow en the wpper side of the pillow, and rock theniselvrt asleep in a few minutes. LARGEST CITY TENNESSEE : FRIDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 25, 1870. BAZAISE'S J0LBXEY FROM HETZ An Ent;Ilal Report of Greetings by .as was-, , . i The following details of the capitula tion of Mete are supplied in a telegram from the special correspondent of the London News with tha German army which invested that fortress. It is dated Metz, October 30th, and supplies a few facta additional to those already pub lished: At four o'clock in the afternoon the French companies which still mounted guard at the various gates in the city, and at the depots and arsenals were re lieved by the Prussians, two regiments of infantry and one of cavalry having entered into the town. 1 he uermuu Military Governor.fleneral Von Zastrow, Commander of the Seventh Corps, took possession of tbo government of the city and fortress, where he tells me he expects to find the portrait of one of hi ancestors, who was at some early period also a military governor of Metz. The tragedy was completed, but its seddest side, remains to be recorded. According to the statement of Gen eral Von Zastrow, who held the Bois de Vaux on the morning of the l'Jtb of Au gust, Bazaine could then have avoided being shut up in Metz. After he was there he could, according to Metz state- ments.have readily made a sortie and re joined him. After most of his cavalry and artillery horses had been eaten this, of course, was more difficult. But still his movements are said to have lacked determination, and even to have been fnvolous in the last two sorties. These facts are put down to the account of a complot with the Kegency, according to which his army was to try to remain in ttalu quo until the conclusion of the war in Western Krnnce, and then be come available: with rrussian consent for Bonapartist purposes, Buzaine him self expecting in that case to be the Governor, of the Imperial Prince and the virtual Regent. N early all the people of Metz seem to beliove this, and many of the most influ ential have admitted so to me. During the whole of the investment Bazaine had never been seen in the camp, except on extraordinary occasions; never at all in the ambulances, which were partly con structed in numerous railroad carriages on the i lace Koyale, and hardly ever in the city. The civil authorities had to hnd him at St. Aliirtm. lie would not once appear at the Muirie. lie rarely it ever, said a word to encourage the trotrjis. Canrobcrt sometimes cheered their patience a little, and then they would cry " Vive Canrobcrt!" "A has Bazine ! " Toward the last he durst pot, it is said, for fear of assassination, show himself to his own men. ' For the last five weeks the amputations have been performed without chloroform or ether, and the wounds dresBcd without carbolic acid. Ibere are more than l'.l,000 sick and wounded, and 35,000 persons have died in the town alone dur ing the siege, the greater part from lack ot proper care. 1 he prevailing diseases aro variole, spotted typhus and dysen tery, Scurvy has not prevailed, though even the sick have for more than three weeks received their horse steaks and horse broths without salt. The reported discovery of a saline spring at St. Julien was a hoax, got up by putting salt into a spring, to encourage the army. When the surrender became known the people became furious. The National Guard refused to lay down their arniB, and on the 2'Jth. in the afternoon, a dra goon captain appeared at the head of a body ot troops, who swore they would sooner die than yield; while Albert Col lignon, editor of an ultra democratic puper, the Journal de Metz, rode about on a white horse tiring a pistol, and ex horting them to sally out and seek death or victory, to escape the impending shame. ' tie was followed by a lady sing ing the " Marseilluise," which produced terrible excitement. The doors of the cathedral were burst open, and the tocsin and funeral bell rung nearly all night. When General Colliniere appeared to pacify them, three pistol shots were fired at him. Finally, by the aid of two line regiments, he quietly dispersed the mcb. But all night the sounds of grief, in dignation and terror were kept up. Re spectable women ran about the streets tearing their hair and flinging their bon nets and laces under their fleet, wildly crying aloud, " What will become of our children?" Soldiers, drunk and sober, tumbled hither and thither in irregular groups, with their caps off and their sabers broken, crying, sobbing and weep ing like children. "Oh, poor Metz! Once the proudest of cities! What a misfortune! What an nnhenrd of ca tastrophe! We have been sold! All is lost! It is all up with France I" and so on. Ihe civil tunctionartes asked each other across the streets, " Who will be our master? Who will govern us? Where shall we go that we may not see the rum that has come upon the nation f Yesterday 1 was closeted with the Mnirio and City Council for two hours, while they detained me as the first stranger who had entered the town. They asked me all maimer of questions; some really childish, in their agitation, uncertainty and terror. At four yesterday afternoon Bazaine passed through Ars, on his way to Wil nelmshohe, in a closed carriage marked with his name, and escorted by .several officers of his staff on horseback. - The women of the village had heard of his arrival, and awaited him with exclama tions ot "traitor!" "cowardl" "sneak!" "thief!" etc. "Where are our husbands whom you have betrayed? Give us bark our children whom vou have sold!" They even attacked the carriage and broke the windows with their fists, and would have lynched him but for the in tervention ot the rrussian gendarmes. REMARKABLE FIGHT. A Bowl e-Hnlfe Tournament Both Combatants Hilled. Low.ll (Kansas) Cor. 8. Y. Herald. Dr. V. C. Lawrence, c-f Vacuna. Col orado, recently of Philadelphia, has just arrived here and furnished me the fol lowing details - of one of those bloody tragedies enacted nowhere else than on the borders : On Tuesday (election day) Joe and Charley Bigger (brothers), Gus Norton and Tom Jackson, who had been driving a herd of cattle into Missouri, parsed through here on their return home, in Northern Texas. The men were all young, well mounted and armed, and each possessed of considerable money! the proceeds of the sale of their rattle. They stopped some two hours in this place, and I had a long conversation with them, un ueanesuay afternoon they camped on the banks of a small stream in the Indian Territory, about forty miles from here, and after staking out their horses and while cooking their supper.satdowntoagameofcards. They had hardly commenced their game when Orestes Vi atrons, (known as Cock-Kyed Wat.) Theo. Aliiann and Dick Bradford, noted New Orleans gamblers, rode into the camp. These gamblers were on a ofeasiunal tour from tort Scott, and were bound for Buxton Springs and Kan sas City. The new comers were gladly welcomed and invited to camp with the herders, which invitation was quickly ac cepted. The sua being tome two hours high, it was suggested that there was plenty of time to have a social game or two ofi .a- CIRCULATION. FURNITURE. NEW GOODS! IN CARPETS, OIL CLOTHS & FURNITURE.

A second and a third joust was ru when Watrous' horse received a slight cut on the flank. Uu the fourth roun Bigger, as ho passed Watrous, threw himself on the off side of his pony, so as to expose no portion ol ins person and drove his knite deep into the nec of his adversary's steed. Watrous, divin ng the maneuver, wheeled as the blow was struck, and attempted to unstring nigger s pony, but succeeded only in in dieting a sovere wound. 1 his style fighting was then abandoned, and both men and horses appeared to become in furiated at the sight of blood. As they neared each other the fifth time. Bigger suddenly struck Watrous with his fast in the luce, at the same moment cutting fearful gash in his thigh, but, before he could get awuy, Watrous succeeded l driving his knife into Bigger's shoulder. Ihe combatants and horses were becom ng weak from loss of blood, when Wat rous determined, if possible, to end the combat by riding down bis adversary, which he thought the superior weight of nis norse wouiu en&uie uim 10 ao. Ac cordingly, on the sixth round, he ninde directly upon Bigger s pony, and Bigger, in attempting to avoid the collision, was severely cut in the arm and lace. I h pony, however, was game, and, although very lame, seized the roan by the cheek lucerating it in a fearful manner. At the seventh encounter the horses came together with a fearful shock. The pony, being thrown, fell npon his rider, but both immediately- regained them selves. Watrous' horse was fast bleed ing to death from the stab in the neck and Watrous himself could scarce keep is seat trora the wound in bis thigh Bigger succeeded in again sticking Wat rous in the thigh, and was struck in "re turn in the side. Several blows were in tercbanged and evaded or fell only npon the horses. The fight had now lasted more than half an hour, when Dr. Lawrence rode p in time to witness the final round As they came together Watrous endeav ored to rise up in his stirrups and throw himself upon Bigger, but neither horse could stand the encounter, and both fell iguer was streaming with gore from the cuts in the face, back and arms, but was able to extricate himself, and rushed pon Watrous, who could not rise on ac count of the wounds in his thigh. Big- ger tlir iter threw himsell upon Watrous with the fury of a fiend, and almost in a moment his knife had reached the unfortunate gambler's heart, and Bradford, seeing the fate of his friend, raised his pistol, fired, and Bigger full dead across the corpse of W atrous. A free fight at once ensued, Bigger, Norton and Jackson faring npon Brad ford and Allison. Bradford was killed in the melee, aud Charley Bigger and Jackson severely wounded. The wounded were taken to a cabin about half a mile from the battlefield, and their wounds dressed by I)r.Lawrence,who pronounced them in a fair way of recovery. This is one ot the most remarkable fights that has everoccurred, even among the lawless adventurers of the border. It sounds like romance, but the source of my information will not admit of a doubt of its truth. fan a Woman Keen a Heeret. The Nineteenth Century, a periodical published in Charleston, thus treats this much mooted point: Men say women can't keep a secret. It's just the revcrse women can, men can't. Women carry with them secrets that would kill any man. Woman never tells; man always does. Woman suffers and dies; man blabs and lives. Man cannot keep a serret; woman cannot make it known. What is sport to the man is death to the woman. Adam was a sneak. Kve would have kept the ap ple a secret. Be ye faithful. Who ever heard a woman talk about her lover's fiascos? Kverybody has heard a man gossip. Man delights in telling of his illicit conquests; woman would cut her tongue out first. Men are coarse in their club-room talk; women refined in their parlor conversation. Who ever heard of a woman telling of her lovers? Who has not listened to the dissipation of men? Men boast, women don't. Women never tell tales out of school; men are always blabbing. So down with another old tdage. Woman can keep a secret, and her ability to do so is proved by the con duct of a rt- John (New Brunswick) girl, who did not tell her lover she was worth four millions in her own right until after her marriage. James Russell, of Sutton, N. H., lorn mitted uicide Monday afternoon by hanging himself in his barn. A piece of paper was found on which he had written: " I came into the world in 1"0, have lived seventy years and seen the ma chine, but don't understand it. ' I came into the world by the neck, and if they will accept me will go oat by the neck. ' It is thought he was insane. ledger. DOLLAR STORE. g ' a a 2 Us ' r t tv 3 f " 2 . 2 J3 j r1 I1?
