Ls Vegas, X, M. Feb. 7th, 18), TELEGRAPHIC. The President on his Itambles Sight Seeing at Chico, California. The Treaty With the Utes feign ed by More than the Requisite Number. Something about the Fate of the Franklin Expedition. Nebraska State Fair Murders liase Ball and News in General. New York, Sept 24. Tho Herald publishes tho letter of a correspondent who accompanied the Schatka expe dition to King Williams land. The story refers more particularly to the accidents of the great sledge journey. This is supplemented however, by the discovery of relics aud the examina" tion of native witnesses which led to the sad conclusion that the fate of the oflicer and crew of the Erebus aud Terror was terrible evcu to the ut most limit of the imagination and that the records of the Franklin expedi tion are lost beyond recovery. Old men and women of Esquimaux land tell the story of those who were doubtless lopt survivors of these un fortunate vessels with minuteness of detail and evident truthfulness which place their fate beyond doubt. Of what became of their gieat leader and of the large number of men who made up the crews nothing could be discovered only a small party of others blackabout the mouth with no ileshoit their bones was seen dragging a boat across tho ice and then they disap pear and no' hing more was seen oí them until their skeletons were found under their hoat" and in a tent, a prey to wild boasts and with dreadful evidences that they had been driven to feed on the weaker of their com panions before finally yielding to starvation and cold. Such is the sad conclusion which the discoveries of this expedition irresistibly led to. What became of the records of the Franklin expedition that were with hispar'y is also painfully evident from the testimony of the natives wlio naturally considered them of no importance aud by whom they were allowed to lie around a3 playthings' for children aud were eventually des troyed.
