The appearance of Mr. DOloi, Mr.
Uicxcm' agent, In thli country, for the
purpose of making arrangement! for the
(lutingouhed noiclut to giro reaJingi
from his own works In our principal cities.
has called out numerous newspaper arti
cles : lome lost views are exnresscd. but
many foolish criticisms and ill natured I
flings are indulged In by others, nnworthy
the American press.
To bo sure, Mr. Dickixs in "Martin
Chtuzelwil" and In his "American Notes"
did say some severe things of usj but that
was twenty years ago, and we ought to
hare forgotten all abont it long ere this.
Why u it that we are so thin-skinned that
we cannot bear to be told the truth t It
is said that after Mr. Diciixs was cour
teously and hospitably received, he turned
around and abused us. It Is true he did
not bestow upon aj unmixed praise, but
that he abused us is not so clear. It Is
erUIn that in the works alluded to above
he d.d caricature some of our people, and
ever ly crieicised some of our practices,
customs and institutions Theso word
ptUcres were a little overdrawn, bnt it
must be recollected that caricature Is al
ways grotesque, whether In prose, poetry
or art. But then he abused us as a people,
it u said. He drew ficticious characters
and presented them as living men and
women, and gave the impression that
these people constituted the bulk of our
population. Not quite ; this Is largely a
creature or our imagination Let us sec :
The task is by no means difficult, to find
in newspapordom such characters aa Col.
Diver and Jeuerson ilnek. Then we
should cot require a candle to discover
among our would be statesman the pre
cj counterpart ol the great Elijah Pog
ran, and the numerous other characters
this d!l up the chinks in Mr. Diciiks'
war!u on America. The most superficial
observer if hie sad character will not find
i . S nl. to pci: them out any day in
tie .. They cross our path at many
p i J a strut their brief life upon the
isaje Aa. tioah their existence is epte
isrru hs race does not become extinct.
Oar its! point when Mr Diciixs was
in thj country, twenty years ago, was
ar ry anl his exposition of this Institu
i. ct jU-hiJ a both North and South, in
a v ry tender pent. Vfc writhed a good
d'.al under the caustic application which
he administered, and though we haro got
rid of slavery we are loth to forgive him
for chastizing us so severely. Slavery Is
now dead, and the groat author may, when
ho Tisits our shores again, have the oppor
tunity to witness tho fact that our institu
tions arc fast becoming homogeneous.
Hut we shall do well to consider that If
Mr DiiKEvs had drawn unnatural and fic
titlous characters, and presented them as
types of American life, thi y were no moro
mere exaggerations than are many of his
characters in his purely English novels
If he has abused our institutions by point-
ing out tlie.r defects for nothing human
13 perfect ho has also abused the lastlta
tions of his own land, as all familiar with
bis works know. We regret to Bee theso
snarling criticisms upon Mr. Dick us on
tbo cvo of his starting for America
While wo would not act tho part of the
flunky nor toady to this really great man
of letters, we would cordially welcome
this able instructor of man, and this
moulder of institutions, with a cordiality
that should be open and frank, and with a
manly dignity, on our part, that should
convince him that wo can patiently bear
to be told our faults We trust when Mr.
Dickens shall corns among us again he
will note some improvements which have
been wrought In tho land during the last
twenty j ears, and that though he may find
some things to censure, he will also find
many things to commend. Ono editor
hopes that Dickers will be wise, imitate
TiucKsar, and write no account of his
next visit. We hope he will not imitate
liuckERv, and wo trust he will write a
book If thcro was ever material in any
land at any timo for such a writer as
Dickbns to seizo upon and givo it body
ana lorra ana life, that material It has.
Ave hope, therefore, ho will write a book,
and that he will not forego this labor for
rear ol ouenuing us Americans by any
thing he may choose to say of us

Indian War.
A special correspondent of the New
York Herald writes to that journal aa fol
lows from Fort Buford, Dakota Terri
"Yesterday afternoon, about 2 o clock,
a larire band of Teton SJonx made a raid
on this fort. They were mounted on swift
ponies, and came down from the woods
and bluffli northwest of the fort. They
came very rapidly, but very quietly, until
they were within half a mile of the fort,
where the herd was grazing. They then
opened fire with old muskets and bows
and arrows, killing several of the cattle,
and wounding others so that they had to
be killed. Among these were three choice
cowl, from which the major part of the
garrison's milk was obtained. The long
roll soon brought the men under arms, and
tney leu in wun a wui, connaenuy noping
and exnectins fltrht with tho redskins.
Blessed are they who expect nothing, for
they shall not be disappointed. Company
C were deployed as Skirmishers, and from
what we can find out, went after the In
dians Indian fashion. This is Colonel
IUnkln'a company, and as it was here all
last winter, the men of that company
ought to know how to go after the Sioux.
The artillery of Fort Buford was speedily
brought to bear upon the Indians, and as
shot and shell fell among them, their horses
were seen to fir in every direction. Thev
retreated to the bluffs; there they dis
mounted and threw out a sort of picket
line s. e. inree or lour inoians,wno stoou
like trees and looked like trees until the
shells from Forts Buford and Union kicked
up the dust around them, and that waa the
last we saw of " the poor Indian." There
was no cms wounded. Doubtless some
sensation writer who hangs around lager
beer saloons and otoer uonemian resorts
will renort a massacre at Union and Buford
perhaps worse than that reported last

The enemy fired five or six shots at ease, aad It
was one of thoe thai etnsek Mr. Mukefiile. I
did not know that he wu sertonily hart, aad
left him walking to the rear to meet the doctor,
who was coming np at the time.
We fired two or three volleya at tho enemy

vanced more than fifteen yards further I re
ceived the order to fall back, and It wu not
until ten mlnntea after that I learned that Mr.
MaoKe&tle wu mortally wounded.
To reach the enemy, we charged across a
gully filled with long grus, which impeded our
movement, and ahead of us still there was a
ravine backed by dense undergrowth. It wis
Impossible to tell the position of the enemy until
