favor of the committee which had charge of

make remarks. He declined, but denied all

The Yellowstone expedition has had two en
counters with the red-skins, the particulars of
which are furnished by a dispatch from Muscle
Shell Biver. The first fight occurred on Aug.
4, in which 80 troops were engaged for two
hours against 300 Indians. The firing was at
long range, and but little damage done to
either side, only two Indians being killed.
While the fight was going on, several Indians
left the war party, in search of stragglers.
Coming upon Dr. Honsinger, the veterinary
Burgeon, and Balarain, the cavalry sutler, who
were less than a mile from the column, they
killed them and took their horses and valua
bles. Private John Ball, or the cavalry, while
out hunting, mot with a similar fate. On the
6th of August, Gen; Stanley d.'eeted Gen. j
Custer to take his cavalry, numbering 450
men, and follow and punish the Indians. On
the 11th he was attacked by about 800 Indians
on the banks of the Yellowstone river, who
openod a brisk fire. After the fighting had
been going on some time, Gen. Custer ordered
a charge, which was gallantly executed, the
red-skins fleeing before the impetuous onset.
They were pursued some eight ' miles, and
badly scattered. The battle is described as a
fierce one. Gen. Cnster and Adjt. Ketcham
had their horses shot under them. Lieut.
Braden was badly shot in the thigh. Private
Tattle, Gen. Custer's orderly, was killed, and
twenty of the soldiers were slightly wounded.
The Indians' loss is estimated by Gen. Custer
at forty killed and wounded. The Indians
were well armed with heavy rifles, and had
abundant ammunition. Some were dressed in
clothes procured at the Agency. These In
dians were mainly Uncapapas, supposed to be
under the command of Sitting Ball, and are
supposed to have received their supplies from
Fort Peck. The expedition is now on the
homeward march, and will reach Fort Bice
about the 1st of October. . . .One of the attor

The Findings of the Modoc Court-Martial
Approved by the President—The
Savages Sentenced to be Hanged on the
Third Day of October.
The War Department has promulgated, in
general orders, the finding and sentence in
the case of the Modoo captives, Capt. Jack,
Schonchin, Black Jim, Boston Charley, Barn-
cho, alias One-Eyed Jim, and Sloluck. alias
Cox, who was tried by the Military Commis
sion for the murder of Gen. Canby and Com
missioner Thomas, and for assault with in
tent to kill the other Peace Commissioners.
They are found guilty of the specifications
and charges and sentenced te be hanged.
The proceedings have been approved by the
President and Secretary of War. In the text
of the general order, specification first, tinder
the charge of murder, in the violation
of the laws of war, recites that they,
the Indians, commonly known as Capt. Jack,
Schonchin, Boston Charley, Black Jim, Bam
eho, alias One-Eyed Jim, and Sloluck, alias
Cox, members of a certain band of Indians
known as Modocs, which band, including the
prisoners above named, was, at the time here
inafter alleged, engaged in open and flagrant
war with the United States, under the chief
command of said Capt. Jack, did, as repre
sentatives of said Modoc baud, meet, under a
flag of truce aud suspension of hostilities,
lirig.-Gen. E. It. S. Canby, U. 8. A., command
ing the Department of Columbia, aud certain
Peace Commissioners, on the part of said
United r-tates, for the agreed and professed
purpose of discussing and arranging the terms
npou which tno Hostilities existing uetwoen
tho United States and said band should cease.
id did thereupon, in wanton violation of said
fla; if tmco, and treacherously disregarding
tho obligations imposed hy t-ald truce under
the laws of war, willfully, feloniously, and of
malice aforethought, kill and niurdor said
lirig.-Ocn. Canby. All this at or near tho
Lava Beds, so-culled, situated near Tule Lake,
iirtho State of California, on or about the lllh
day of April, 1873.
The second specification is the same the
first, only that the name of Peace Commis
sioner Eleazer Thomas, is substituted for that
of Gen. Canby. The specifications under the
second charge of assault with intent to kill
in violation of the laws of war, recite the at
tempt to kill Peace Commissioners A. B.
Meacham and L. S. Dvor, at the time their
associates, Thomas and Gen. Canby, were
murdered, all of whom were representing the
United States. To the charges and specifica
tions, accused pleaded not guilty. But the
Commissioners found them guilty, and sen
tenced them to be hanged at such time and
place as the proper authorities should direct.
The following is the order made by the
President in the matter :
" Executive Office, Aug. 23, 1873.
" The foregoing sentences in the cases of
Capt. Jack. Schonchin, Black Jim, Boston
Charley, Barncho, alias One-Eyed Jim, and Slo
luck, alias Cox, Modoc Indian prisoners, are
hereby approved, aud it is ordered that the
sentences in said cases be carried into execu
tion by the proper military authority, under
orders of the Secretary of War, on the 3d day
of October, 1873. (Signed)
"U. S. Gbant, President."
The Secretary of War has ordered that the
sentences be duly executed, under direction of
the General commanding the Department of
the Columbia, at Fort Klamath, Oregon,on
Friday, October 3, 1873.
Practical Advice for Fishermen.
First Find out if there are any fish
in the river to -which you are going ; if
so, get some oae who knows the water
to show you where the fish lie ; and
when he shows them to yon, don't you
show yourself to them.
Second Don't imagine, if the fish
does not dart away, that he has not seen
you ; on the contrary, he is very likely
devoting his whole attention to you, and
preparing to start the moment danger is
Third If you are fishing with a fly,
and you pass it neatly three times over
him, and he refuses it, you need not
wait any longer ; he has seen your line
of invitation, and does not intend to
Fourth If you are above a fish when
you hook him, get below him as soon as
you can ; for if you pull him one instant
against the stream, and he is a heavy
fish, he will break his hold.
Fifth Never throw a long line when
a short one will answer.
Sixth Never mind what is said about
" playing your fish till he is tired ;"
put him in your basket as soon as you
Seventh Kemember that everything
depends upon the way you begin your
acquaintance. If you can prevail on a
hsh to go down tne stream a little way
with you, you will afterward have no
difficulty in persuading him to let you
have tne pleasure oi seeing mm to din
ner. To these excellent maxims I beg leave
to add one of Mr. Stoddart's, especially
intended for bachelors, young and old
"Never fall in lave with a woman by
the water side ; there are situations in
which every woman looks an angel.

to suit the feelings and comfort of the
mass, and a persistent struggle ensued
between the kittens to effect a separa
tion, which has finally been made. As
a consequence of the dissolution of the
union, some of the kittens have six legs
while others have but two. Those who
have seen two cats with their tails tied
together, and thrown over a line, can
imagine how desperately those infant
kittens struggled for liberty. Those that
survive (most of them are dead) exhibit
all the characteristics of the feline race
in general, but their condition does not
contribute additional weight to the
aphorism that ' union is strength,' as it
will require very careful nursing to
bring them safely out of their kitten
hood. The mother seems to regard the
curious freak with complacency, is
proud of her offspring, and, for aught
we know, credits herself with originality,
in the production of something quite
out of the usual line in this business.
Had the kittens been secured in time,
and preserved, they might have made a
trip round the world as curiosities in
some traveling museum. Maj. Burn
nell ought to have them."
A Kentucky Double-Header.
Sylvester Bowman, of Claiborne
county, Ky., undertook to bruise the
head of a six-foot serpent lately, but the
pesky serpent come near turning the
tables on Bowman. Another man helped
him out of the scrape, and the snake
was found to have a horn at the end of
its tail a little over an inch and a quar
ter long, shaped like a rooster's spur.
But what was still more astonishing, it
had two eyes in its tail, which, except
ing the horn, was shaped exactly like
the head, but was not so large. Indeed,
to have seen the tail one would have
thought that it was the head, and that
the horn was its tongue. The horn was
very Bharp. The snake seemed very
fierce at its tail-end, and endeavored to
strike everything that came near its tail.
Various experiments were made to as
certain whether it could see with the
eyes in its tail, and it was demonstrated
beyond a doubt that it could. These
eyes had lids, which opened and shut
and. gleamed with anger. Indeed, the
tail-head seemed far more fierce than
the other head. It was so fierce at both
ends that it was necessary to shoot it.
This statement was vouched for by the
minister of the place, the selectmen,
schoolmaster, and editor.
Colored Jews.
In the city of Cochin, Hindostan,
says the Jewish Times, live some 2,000'
colored Israelites, whose skin is not bo
dark as that of. the genuine Ethiopian.
They are Jews in every sense, worship
the God of their fathers, the only true
Jehovah, and are intellectually the su
periors of the white inhabitants of the
place. According to their own account
their origin is as follows : The con
quest of a portion of the East Indies by
the Europeans opened to commerce a
wide field and attracted a multitude of
speculators from all parts of the world.
Among these were many young Israel
ites from Bagdad, Bassorah and Yemen,
who came to make their fortune in the
new Eldorado. After they had settled
down they purchased from tho negroes
black female slaves, many of whom
were afterward converted and then mar
ried by their masters. It was from
these marriages that the present race
descends. Ancient Hebrew manuscripts
and law tables, written on parchment,
have been found among the Cochin
Ioe-Cbeam. Here is a pleasant item
for lovers of ioe-creiim. It is said that
in some of the Paris restaurants lce-
crenin is made of corn-starch, French
clay, aud coloring matter, the beautiful
pink tint being given by cochineal. It
is not only in Paris that the art of mak
ing ice-crenm without cream is well
Change of Color.
Sudden shocks occurring to human
beings have frequently changed the
color of their hair from black to white
in a single night. A physician of Ber
lin a strong, healthy, and less than
middle-aged man sent his wife and one
daughter to spend last summer at a
watering-place. The day that he ex
pected a letter informing him of their
arrival, there came one saying that his
daughter had been taken sick very sud
denly and was already dead. The shock
waa terrible, and instantly his hair be
came entirely gray. He had to visit
some patients that same afternoon, and
they scarcely recognized him. Their
peculiar actions revealed the change to
him. The other case was of a man 35
years old, living in the Netherlands.
He was one day passing the canal in
Rotterdam, where he saw a child strug
gling in the water. He plunged in and
brought it to land, but it was already
dead by the time he has rescued the
body. Bending over it to try to restore
life, he discovered that the dead child
was his own son. The blow, so sudden
and unexpected, and coming upon him
when he himself was so much exhaust
ed, turned his hair entirely gray, and
left him scarcely recognizable.
Doo and Logic. A fat old gentleman
was "bitten in the calf of his leg by a
dog. He at once rushed to a magistrate,
and preferred a complaint against a jo
ker in the neighborhood, whom he sup
posed to be the owner of the offending
cur. The following was the defense
offered on the trial by the wag : 1. By
testimony in favor of the general good
character of my dog, I shall prove that
nothing could make him so forgetful of
his canine dignity as to bite a calf. 2d.
He is blind and cannot see to bite. 3d.
Even if he could see to bite, it would be
utterly impossible for him to go out of
his way to do so, on account of his severe
lameness. 4th. Granting his eyes - and
legs to be good, he has no teeth. 5th.
My dog died six weeks ago. 6th. I
never had any dog.
Oia Humbugs Discarded. Thank
heaven, the old-school practice is pass
ing away. Ipecac, aloes, calomel, blis
tering, the lancet, and (worse than all)
medicated rum, have given place to a
new remedy, which bids fair to become
the universal medicine of mankind.
Vinegab Bitters is that remedy. It is
destined to take precedence of all other
curatives now before the world. The
pharmacopoeia and conspectus of the
regular Faculty contain nothing that
will compare with it. Every day hun
dreds of the sick are emancipating
themselves from By steins of treatment
which entail great expense and do no
good, and are flying to this cheap and
absolutely certain means of relief. Dys
pepsia, rheumatism, liver complaint,
periodic fevers, sick headache, kidney
diseases, constipation, nervous affec
tions, and in short all. maladies, acute
or chronic, which do not involve the
irreparable injury of some vital organ,
are cured by this pure inalcoholic vege
table restorative. Com.

Want of Vitality.
If a deficiency of vital enorgy ! not a disease in
itself it Is a condition which lays the system open
to the attacks of all conceivable maladies. . Night
and day we are surrounded more or less by delete
rious influences. No atmosphore is entirely pure,
no water utterly free from injurious particles
while in many localities both are positively un
wholesome. What defense has the woak, languid
system, in which the vital principle Is.dencient or
dormant, against any oi the morbid influences
which produce epidemie and other diseases?
None whatever. There is no safety save in artifi
cial reinforcement. Hostetter's Stomach Bitters
hare, beyond all question, a vitalizing effect. If
the nervoua forces of the body have been reck
lessly expended in exhausting physical or mental
labor, or dissipated in the indulgences of a "fast"
life, this powerful vegetable tonic and corrective
will restore them. If the defective vitality is a
constitutional evil it can be remedied to a great
extent by this wonderful invlgorant. At a season
of the year when the air is more or less impreg
nated with the seeds of periodie fevers, it is espe
cially desirable that the digestion should be per
fect, the habit of body regular, the liver active,
the blood pure and the nerves firm. These condi
tions are the best protection against all disorders,
and they are conditions which the Bitters are
better adapted than any other medicinal agent to
promote and secure. See to it, however, that no
imitation or counterfeit is substituted for the gen
uine article, and let all who value health and have
an antipathy to poison beware of the local bitters
made from condemned drugs and vilely adulter-
ated alcohol, which have sprung up like unwhole
some fungi aU over the country.

Give Them Work.
Children enjoy playtime all the more
if they have work to do on occasion. If
you would have your little ones inter
ested in home and its surroundings, and
also have them grow up to love work,
and to depend upon that for their hap
piness, give them a personal interest in
something. One child may have a piece
of ground and be allowed to cultivate
it, appropriating the proceeds as he
pleases. Another may have a few fowls
and be taught to keep an account of
their eggs and the cost of their keeping.
Even in towns, something of this kind
may be planned for each little one,
which will combine profit with pleasure,
and give them habits of industry.
Within a few months several bakeries
have been established in the capital of
Japan, and bread is now sold regularly
in the streets to those wishing to culti
vate foreign tastes. It is sold either in
loaves or in slices, and venders and pur
chasers appear to be alike indifferent as
to the freshness of the article. Some of
the loaves exposed are covered with a
rich green mold, which is apparently
regarded as an adornment by the Japan
ese. The slices are toasted brown, and
then eaten with the native soy. Butter
is not yet in demand among the Japan
ese, notwithstanding that there are a
large number of cows and dairies in
Yeddo. '
