Washington, Aug 23.—A telegram lias been rnceived nt the war department from Major Randlett, commanding Kort Du r T Uk ! n _ ~ ' . "' lgUi * »rough Gen. Terry, saying : "Colorow has his fol lowers with him, about 150 in all, includ ing men, women and children. There are no indications of his being reinforced. All the Indians at Uintah and Ourray want peace. I believe Colorow would come to the reservation if he could get there with out being attacked. Most of thc party who went out with Andrews returned to thc the Agency, having been frightened hack. They claim Colorow'« camp could not be found. Great anxiety is felt regarding Chepita. If the cowboys have banned her 1 anticipate it will end in serious trouble." This is the first time that the name of Chepita has been mentioned in the re ports from the Indian troubles. Al though nothing is known of her here it is presumed at the war department that she is either a relative of Colorow, or the daughter of some prominent chief. Glenwood Springs, Col., August 25.—. a courier arrived at 4 o'clock this morning and tiie following message was sent to Governor Adams, Denver; Major Leslie has Colorow corralled with two hundred bucks. They say that they want to sec a big white man ; want a little fight: won't talk to the cowboy whites; soldiers must go back or have a little figbt. Kendal! has onlv fifty-two men. This is postive.

An emergen cy exists which require« your presence here at once. Was .She a Princess? Paris letter: A great scandal filled all the papers for a day ar.d then was sudden dcnly hushed up in the most mysterious manner, nothing mote being heard on the subject. A lady was arrested recently for kleptomania at the Grand Magazins du Louvre, On being searched by the police she was found to have lier puise filled with gold and her linen marked with a princess' coronet. On being questioned as to her name she informed thc astonished police commissary that site was tire famous Prin cess de —— —----. Was site really the princess in question or was she only some adventuress who had adopted her name and title lor thc timer The matter remains a mystery. One thing, however is certain. In the first place, some extremely power ful influences must have been set to work to so suddenly silence the newspapers, which were already making very great capital of thc incident, and secondly, Baron Siellere's order of release was signed by the Prefect of Police within a few hours after he had received a report of thc lady's arrest. Perhaps be thought tirai Baron SU Here was not ihe only member of the | family who required incarceration in the | madhouse. ! «'ftltfornla Can him! Goads. San Francisco, Aug. 20.—There is in tense excitement in California canned goods circles. Prices are rapidly advanc ing. This week has seen an advance of fifteen to twenty-five per cent in peaches, peats and plums. The demand from the Eastern states is unprecedented. It is not a question of price with buyers. The sel lers can dictate their own figures at the ad vanced price the demand is not materially lessened. They cannot hope to supply the orders by pressing the facilities of their canneries to their full capacity day and night as long as the fruit season lasts. Every cannery in the state is running at Us full capacity. Thursday of tins week one company refused orders of twenty car loads of canned fruit. Another company states that two cases for every one packed will not supply the demand upon them. One of the principal causes of the inabili ties of the canneries to meet their order*, is the scarcity of labor. It i» impossible to secure thc amount of help desired. Can nery men prefer whites, but alter employ ing the latter kind and all the Chinamen possible, there is still a call for more labor ers. An Ottawa, Ont., dispatch of August 23, savs: An application for the extradition ot two half-breeds recently arrested in Mon tana on suspicion ot having been concerned in the murder of Hector McLeish, near Wolseley, N. \V. T., has beet; made .0 Washington authorities BURNED AT SEA. The Steamer "City of Montreal'' Destroyed By Tire.Two Hundred Mlle» from Land. A London dispatch of thc loth inst. sax s : The Inman Line steamer, City of Montreal, has been destroyed by fire at sea and tbir teeil __ _______. a teen persons aboard perished, treal left New York August 6t | | ! Tiie Mon August 6th, for Liv erpool, commanded by Captain Land. News of her destruction was learned upon the arrival ut Queenstown this morning of the British steamer, York City, Captain Benn, which left Baltimore August 4, for London. This steamer rescued the sur vivors from thc burning vessel and brought them to Queenstown. A Queenstown dispatch of same date says Captain Land, commander of the City of Montreal, makes the following re port: "On the loth inst. thc wind was north tn northwesterly. About 9 o'clock of the evening of that Jay fire was discov ered in thc after hatch among the cotton. Tiie tire hose was at one connected and streams of water were poured down upon the flames. Aimihilators and band gre nade fire extinguishers were freely used, but the fire overcame all our efforts to sup press it and spread over the upper and lo ver deck. The ship was doomed from the beginning of the fire, ami fin* boats bad been spread ÿmi provisioned. At f> o'clock on tHe morning of the 1 ith hist, tbe flames burst through the after hatches and the boats were lowered. There wa , high sea al the time and this caused much diffi culty. The women and children v err- first put on board tlie boats and the male pas sengers and crow embarked afterwards. The lack of time prevented Hie manning of the boats with their respective crews, tbe men being compelled to continue until the last moment thc work of keeping the flames dow n. All the boats left thc ship safely, but by an unfortunate oversight twenty people were left aboard the burn ing vessel. Boat No. 3 returned and took off sis of the number, and boat No. 5, with the fourth officer, took off six more. A barque was then reported approaching, and when all the bouts had put their people aboard of her, they returned and took off those remaining on thc burning steamer. It was found that boat No. 8 was missing. She was seen to put herself before ttic wind when she left the ship, using her oars in support of the sails. She ran away from the vessel in direct disobedience to the cap tain's orders. Everybody spent the night aboutd the German barque Trabant, Cap tain Scheel, from Charleston, July 24th, for London,and-all were then transferred to the York City, which stayed by through tiie night and vainly searched for the miss ing boat. Captain Land says he is sanguine thut thc people in No. S are saved, as the accident occurred in the track of steamers bound cast. The captain says thc passen gers were cool and obedient during thc crisis, and the crew were steady. The passengers and crew lost everything they had aboard the City of Montreal, except what they stood in when they went into the boats. The origin of lire tire, Captain Land says, is unknown. He is certain it broke out in more than one place among the cotton. Afraid of Stan ley's Whistle. A London (Eng.) dispatch says: In tire letters of Stanley, written from Gatnbuya, near the Rapids of the Aruwima, June 1S, the explorer says thc nidi; es evacuated the place upon the arrival of the expedition, owing to fright produced by the vigorous blowing of steamboat whistles. They re turned afterward evincing a very amienbie disposition, and promised to supply tiie ex pedition with provision*. They informed Stanley that there were rapids higher up which were more difficult of navigation, and that further progrès* by the river would be impossible.
