SIOUX CrrY, April 18.It is stated beret on apparently good authority, that the traders at Bruie City, now within the reservation, under the recent order of the President were made to close their Mores, and that in two instances the property of citizens was confiscated. The land on which Bruie City is situated Watt bought by the present owners trom the Government about two years ago, and id owned in fee simple. A prosper ous town has grown up and traders were doing a thriving business, selling goods and buying furs from the Indians. So rich a prospect could not long es cape the greedy eyes of the Grant fam ily; it was too good to let alone. Bence the order extending the Sioux reserva tion to the east side of the river, cover ing that particular locality.

COLUMBUs, April 13.The city linen 'dal reports exhibited last evening show the ponded municipal debt to be 21.147, 417, and the floating debt about 200,000. A sinking fund has been provided suffi cient to prevent any material increase of , this indebtedness.

What Beecher Sava. BROOKLYN, April 13.--Mr. Beecher, in his examination regarding Mrs. Moul ton's statements. denied them absolute ly. His denials were very emphatic, and consisted of snort exciamations of False! False! Never! Pure fiction! I mayor said any such thingt Nothing el , 'the kind! Pure absolute fiction and en . tirely imaginary'. He Wilber denied hav ing said to her that the Church bad called a committee and that he could not 'help it, but said that he started the call for the committee himself. With reference to Mrs. Moulton's state ment that Mr. Beecher said that they could not convict him, that Tilton had condoned his wife's offense and lived with her four years, that he (Beecher) 'would never confess, but die first, Mr. Beecher made a- most emphatic denial, saying that no such conversation ever occurred. Ile denied the stateraent to the effect that he had said to Mrs. Moul - .ton that she was dearer to him than a - sister and. knowing his guilt, would stand'by him. He denied any statement to him of a conversation between Mrs. Moulton and Mr.Robinson, in which Mrs. Moulton said Mr. Beecher had confessed . , to her, and tutid Mr. Robinson Was Still a ,tegular attendant at his church.

LONDON, April 18.--In the House ot Commoue, Mr. Lewis asked what course tbe Government would take if tbe inde pendence of Belgium was imperiled in consequence of her rejeotion of Prussia's demands. Mr. Disraeli replied that there bad been great misrepresentation and exaggeration in this matter. The Prussian note to Belgium was not a menace it was only a remonstrance. No rejdniler had been made to Igium's answer, and he believed the question was concluded. Germany bad shown her cordiality to England by communi. eating to her the correspondence. In conclusion, Disraeli declared that were Belgium's neutrality really threatened, Her Majesty's Government were pre pared to do their duty to the Sovereign, and would not tear to meet Parliament. , BERLIN, April 13. --The Berlin Post states that its article on the lith instant, indicating the possibility of war, was not inspired by the Government. BARN, April 18.L'Union says: "The Pope has made representations through the Patriarch of Venice to the Emperor of Austria that the position ot the Church is becoming more and more intol erable, and that if the unreasonable de mands of Prussia are not resisted by the Catholic powers the latter will lose all their influence, and become subject to the German Government, whioll is en deavoring to bring the whole German na tionality under one scepter. The Em peror, replying to this through the Aus trian Embaseador at Rome, deplores the struggle between the Church and State, and auvises prudence." At a meeting of the French Commis sioners on the United States Centennial Exhibition, a little address to Ministers DeCates and Say was read.

Gov ernment be sent to the Exhibition at Pailadelphia. Ingersoll's Release. The scenes of the release of Ingersoll from the NewYork Penitentiary are thus described by an Auburn correspondent: Dr. Button, prison puysician. had con ducted Mr. Loren Ingersoll to the hos pital, where tether and son met. Young morsel' was visibly affected, his em barrassment at liret making it. impossi ble for him to speak. His tirst solicituoe was for his lather's health, which bas been declining of late. rhea he talked of other mattera, and expressed himeelf quite freely to Warden Carpenter. In answer to a remark col a warden to the effect that he was departing in as good condition aa he came, be said he was feeling very well indeed. but that be had lost twelve pounds in flesh during his residence at Auburn. He further thanked the Warden for having put him upon a, contract when be first came to the prison, saying he should ever teel grateful on Abet aceount. In this re epectlis prison history was very exem plary. When he came to the prise he was immediately put to work in the col lar shop,. where he ,busied himeelt in ,thaking horse-collars for some months. He was subsequently made bookkeeper to the contractors, who bad purchased his prison labors, and theugh he weir in the institution sixteen months to a day, being incarcerated here December 0, 1878, and discharged April 5, 18-15, only one hour before midnight, and in spite, too, of the tact that during most of the time of his imprisonment he suffered from dumb ague, he lost only a day and a half from prison duty during that whole period. Ills gratitude tor the favor of being pernlitted toearn his prison bread by the sweat of his brow, while hundreds of others are idle, is not readily ap. parent; but when it is remembered that a man in Ingereoll's position would tim idly shrink from the observation of vis itors his motive becomes plain enough. convicts who are at work are shielded trom the idle gaze of persons who are able to penetrate the prison walls without a mandate compelling , them to remain, and to be protected from the eyes ot these was a boon indeed. Though the announcement of his pardon could uot have been a complete surprise to him, he had never betrayed by his words or action any expectation of such an event. More ,than this, he had fre quently told some of the people about tee institution that he never woulð ac cept. a pardon at all. When it came, however, he was glad enough to avail himself ot its advan tages, end was ready dressed and equipped,. even to a heavy cane, to go out into the world once more. Atter the document which guaranteed his depart ure had been received and the usual tarewell questions had been propounded and anewered, lie stepped forth a free man once more, He bad previously availed himself, however, of his only chance to distinguish himself, and he declined to receive the proffered mileage and Ms share in the Visitors' fund al lowed colntnon convicts on leave-taking, the whole aggregating the limb of $19 68'. His conduct during his incarceration wee in every rerpect good. In comment ing upon it Warden Carpenter said, 'We never have any trouule with this class of prisoners," taus leaving to oth ers the deduction that they are the best kind to have. Still it was impossible, even for Ingersoll, to feel at maw, alter exchanging his striped clothes for the dress ot a gentleman. To the prison officials used to such de partures and to his friends he looked splendidly, but to coldereyes his actions 1 and even his desires betrayed his recent ' experiences. Their meaner always , tells their story," said an old resident of this place to Me to-night. And Ingersoll was no exception. it I had never seen him before I should have known that he ' had just come out of Copper John's do mains. 1 Ja-r; ratmes his reasons for revoking his deed of trust, stated to a reporter of the San Francisco Chron tole that a strong inducement was the torture he suffered from the agenta of benevölent societies to which he had not made benefactions. They mere con tinually at his bedside importuning bim to amend the deed so as to include them. Another reason was an evident deter mination on the parte his reatives to test the validity of the deed in the Courts.
