New York, June 19.—An Executive order is to be issued to all Military Commanders in the South to restraio them from removing civil officers. Senator Thayer of Nebraska has fitly re died to the false representations made by Gen. Buford to the War Department, in which Bu ford stated that the whites and not the Indians were to blame on the Plains. Thayer charges Buford with reckless misrepresentation or criminal stupidity. Both Houses of the Connecticut Legislature resolutions of welcome to President Johnson. A desperate fight took place in this city on Monday at Calvery Cemetery, over a burial, and men and women engaged in it, with clubs, stones and knives. One child reported killed. Senator Henderson of Missouri has stated that the whites on the Plains are to blame for the Indian war. An affray took place to-day m Centre street, between a party of Irishmen and some negroes. The police stopped it. Nobody hurt. It is now believed there will be a July ses sion of Congress. The Ohio Radical State Convention Have nominated Gen. R. B. Hays for Governor. Mexico advices are mixed. It is said Santa Anna is back there, and has proclaimed against Juarez. Nothing definite is told of Maximil ian. Sixty ladies of San Luis, dressed in mourning, called on Juarez, and begged for the lives of the prisoners at Queretaro. Jua rez promised to do what he could with justice. London, June 18.—An anti-Popery riot prevails in Birmingham. Two Catholic chap els have been attacked. The rioters hold two streets, and defy the authorities. Troops are being sent down to quell them. The flmeral of one of the Waterford victims was attended by over 5,000 persons, who wore green emblems. A Reform mob last night attacked a Tory meeting in St James Hall. They put a red flag and cap of liberty on the platform. Maiiy arrests were made. The contest in the House upon the Reform bill has been decided in favor of the Derby ministry by eight votes. The Superintendent of the Union Pacific Railroad states work on the road must stop unless protection from the Indians is given. LATE LETTER. FROM LKBIHI. We are permitted to publish the following, which is the latest information we have from Leesburg. The letter came by Adams, Good rich & Co.'s Express, in 6ix days from Lemhi. The writer is well known in Centerville and here. We give his own words : Leesburg, June 17, 1867. Friend Haskell ; —I have been nine days in this misrepresented country. It is still winter here, and is likely to remain winter all summer. We had a Miners' Meeting here yes terday, to amend the mining laws. Hereto fore a man could hold one hundred claims by working one in a district. Now each claim has to be represented four days in each week. There are about two dozen claims paying over expenses. Some Idaho boys opened ground, at a heavy expense, which pays from three to four dollars a day. An Idahoan named Mc Cafierty sold to some boys one interest for one thousand dollars, when the snow was on the ground. They have since abandoned the claim and gone back. The country has no appear ance of mineral resources. From surface to bedrock is a mass of nigger-head boulders. As yet I have not seen any quartz gravel. The Idaho merchants and miners are greatly disap pointed, as they are out and injured. The country is going and will soon be gone. Crowds are leaving for Montana. Hundreds say they would return to the Basin were it not for John Chinaman not leaving a vestige to live on. Drive them out and you will have a more flour ishing country. Marion Moore, with his usual great energy, is working two or three sets of claims, which he has just got open. Jobu Keenan and Hayv thorn are sick of the camp. John Easley says it is a humbug, but is goiug to try to make the thing go till Fall. Mr. Isaacs and McGraw are here, and look hearty. C. Clark, one of the most prominent merchants here, has sold his store to Miller & Berustiel. Everything is overdone. Flour is from $8 to $ 10 per lOo lbs. ; beef, 20 to 25 cts. per ib. ; oysters, $1 per can; duck pants, §2 per pair ; gum boots, Jill, 50 per pair ; leather, §6 50, and everything else in proportion. Lawyers, miners and mer chants all ranch themselves, so that hotel busi ness is played out. Board is $15 per week, meals $1. I have not seen $100 since I have been here. Every one seems broke. I would say to one and all, stay where you are. The whole country seems a mystery—one half blown up by eruptions, and a pity the other half wasn't blown away. Your friend, SAM'L LAIRD. Boise City Items. —We glean from the Statesman of Thursday the follow ing items jof local new r s : v On Wednesday evening Ben. M. Anderson, formerly of Placerville, in this county, hail a severe apoplectic fit. He was improving tit last accounts. The Good Templars of Boise City intend to have a pic-nic celebration on the 4th of July in Holland's Grove, four miles from town. Hon. Jos. Millejr and the Rev. W r m. Roberts will give orations. Gov. Ballard returned on Wednesday even ing from hig late visit to Lewiston and the Nez Perce Indian council. Joseph Milton has been admitted to bail.in three $ 3 , 000 . He shot Win. Dodge in Middle ton precinct about four weeks ago. Dodge died from the wounds a few days since, and Milton is charged with his death. A report has reached Boise City thattbo Indians w 7 ere raiding along the Weiser, and through that Valley. Agreeably to Geu. ÖU ford, that's the fault of the settlers.
