We present a short report which
came over the railroad wire after one
o'clock this morning.
San Francisco, Oct 20. The Daily
Stock itepert .publishes a letter re
ceived frora jfon. T. B. Meachmau by
a friend in this city, dated October
9th. After relating the killing of
Johnson and the demand of the Utes
for the surrender of the prisoner, he
says, "The Utes would not consent
to allovMijc prisoner to be taken to
Cantonnicut, but did agree he might
be taken to Gunnison City provided
three responsible white men would
go with them and hare tried by law
and executed. This agreement was
made a half past eight on Friday
morning. It was the only alternative
To take every white man while there
were twenty-two Utes present, there
fore would be a signal for the slaught
er of every white man in the Ute
country. There were many hundred
miles of ruad with freighters everyfevv
miles expoped.a.d unwarned of danger
The only thing to do was done.
Agent Berry and myself left for home
and the Utes made a compact in good
faith as also did the while men. Af
ter we started the citizens had a talk
with the prisoner and wagon boss
and agreed that the man who fired
the fatal shot should go with the cit
izcus to Gunnison City for trial. The
Indians in the meantime going ou a
trail over the mountains met a large
war party and turned back to Cline's
overtaking the citizens and taking the
prisoner forcibly from them and com
pelling the guard to leave '.ho road.
What became of the prisoner is not
known but there is not much doubt.
1 kuov the compromise was bona fide
and that the release was also buna
fide and terribly in earnest. As might
be expected there are rumors of "put
up job," but I don't believe it.
Washington, October.-The Star
this evening has the following: Ex
congressman McClask'c of California,
is iu the city and he says the demo
crats are thoroughly organized in that
State and will carry it. That the re
publicans will not dare lo introduce
the traffic issue because the men of all
parties are free traders; for free trade
and free ships, and that the Chinese
iáthe principal issue and on this the
democrats are making their fight. He
has been in Nevada and is very much
pleased with the democratic prospects
there; he says Mr. Fair is making a
determined fight and will carry the
State and legislation. The fact that
Sharon has confidence in Nevada is
hurting him badly. The Chinese
question he says is being worked by
the democrats in Nevada and Oregon.
llollaud, Mich., Oct. 20. Trains ar
riving here to-day brought a large
number of persons in search of friends
and rclitive8 lost ou the steamer Al
pena. Every conveyance possible has
been used to convey them to the
beach. The beach from Grand Haven
to Saugatuck has been slowly examin
ed and the whelo amount of wreckage
can be fouud. No bodies except the
two already reported have yet been
found up to this time, 7:30 p. m. So
many watcher arc out and so much
excitement prevails that rumors have
been started in regard lo bodies being
found, but when traced they have
failed to develop anything further.
Cincinnati, Oct, 20. A shocking
causality in connection with a fire oc
curred shortly alter eleven oclock this
forenoon. The fire broke our in the
shoddy manufactury of Benj. Hey,
2d Broadway, and cut off escape from
he third story where a number of
women were at work. The foreman
made ineffectual attempts to rescue
the women. After extinguishing the
fire they succeeded in extracting the
dead bodies of five women; loss esti
mated at $250,000. There was no in
surance Twenty girs and eight women were
in the third story when the fire broke
out. The girls passed down stairs but
only two of the women followed
their example. It is supposed that
ix of them delayed to exchange
their clothing, until the fire cut off
their escape. One of them broke her
leg jumping from a window. The
others burnt to death. The name of
I the one first identified is Miss Welch

Celebrating tbc Taking of Rome, Sep-
tember 20, 1870.
A very pretty custom of this day is
the assembling of as many children as
there are years elapsed from 1870, an i
having the same age as the lapse of
years. They are dressed in white,
with scarfs round their waists of the
Italian colors (green, white and red),
and go to the queen and present her
with a boquet of flowers. This year
there were ten children, each being
ten years of age. I am not sure but I
think they must have been born on
the very day that Rome was taken.
It is not necessary that they should be
Romans ; they need only bo Italians.
This year the queen's health prevent
ed her from being in Rome ; but, no
doubt, the ceremony was performed
wherever she was. The queen is
passionately fond of children, as all
such gen le, tender women usually are
and she has a pretty word for every
child who comes near ; for these chil
dren, however, she has words ou her
lips which engrave the memory of the
day ou each child's heart. Each child
may be u woman some day, aud wile,
mother of sons, whom she must rear
iu love of their country and King, and
Margherita'8 words may iufinence the
mother's words. She will repeat
them to her children each year as the
day comes arouud, and remind her
boys of t he struggles and sufferings
of the men who helped to achieve
.taly's unity ; and she will bid them
do the same and suffer the same should
peril ever again threaten their coun
try's liberty. The 20th of September
is also observed in almost every other
town and village in Italy, although
with less pomp than iu Rome, for
there are very few Italians who do
not rejoice at the fall of the Pope's
temporal power. Cor. Philadelphia
Corageous was a woman of the
Commune who, during that terrible
risiug had worked day and night in
the hospital, assisting a certain sur
geon, whose services had been rend
ered freely to meu with whose cause
he had no sympathy. When the in
surrection was quelled; the doctor
was arrested and marched off to be
tried ydrum head court-martial. As
he approached the door of the tribu
nal, he met his late female assistance
coming out between two soldiers.
"Why, Adele!" he exclaimed, "how
came you here?"
Looking hard at him, with unrecog
nizing eyes, she exclaimed:
"I don't know you sir."
The denial he set down to fear of
acknowledging the acquaintance of a
doomed man. Not a little to his sur
prise he got off, and was set at liberty
to learn that Adele had been shof, aud
was on her way to death when she
had repudiated all knowledge of him,
aud forbore appealing for his aid,
rather than compromise him and
onder his chance a desperate one.
Views of General Gordon of Georgia.
Chattanooga, Oct. 15. Gen. John
B. Gordon, ex-United States senator
from Georgia, one of the most astute
politicians and the greatest leader in
the South, was interviewed iu tr.is
city to-day by your correspondent on
tho defeat ia Indiana. He ascribes it
to the vile attacks on the South by
the Northern Republican press ; part
ly to the tariff issue, btit chiefly to
the fraud aud corruption practiced
iu the staie by the Republican man
agers and the undue influence brought
to bear by bringing the leaders of
the party to the stntc and using their
influence. He thinks the slate will
be redeemed in November, when the
Republicans will be obliged to divide
th''ir fotces to contend against Demo
cratic majorities iu the no-called
doubtful states. He thinks New York
sure with 30,000 majority for the
Democracy, aud counts on New
Jarsey, Oregon and California in No
vember. He regards Pennsylvania
as a doubtful state.- LouisvilloConricr
While our confidence is uuabating
iu the patriotism and intelligence of
the great majority of our citizens, it
is yet even to be kept in mind that
we have not entered upon millcnial
days, and that the institutions which
cost our fathers so dearly do not
flourish of their mere inheraut energy
and suitableness to the ends of gov
ernnvnt. They are no stronger than
the purpo?e and efforts ot the people
to sustain them. This "unknown
quantity," this reserve of strength,
may be greater or less; but wc know
that it is a mighty factor when once
fully evoked. It usually lies back of
observation. Foreigners do not read
ily discover the "hiding of our pow
er," nor those of our own people who
walk only by sight. Judging the
great streams by the backset of its
bayous and eddies, these arc fre
quently ready to despair of govern
ment by the pceple and for the peo
ple. They assure us that the primary
meetings are managed in tho interest
of politicians; that the candidates for
office are not selected with reference
to fitness as regards character and ca
pacity; that in large sections things
have come to such a puss of wicked
ness aud confusion that the ballot box
is no longer a lair, or even an approx
imate, index of the real sentiment of
the voters. There is we fear, much
truth iu all this. We confess it to our
shame aud confusion, for we hold that
it is not beyond mensurable correct;
that it admits of a remedy whi h the
intelligent and well meaning voters
of the country might readily apply if
once they set thcmselv't to the task.
Y"e set too light an estimate upon
our privileges as citizens. We are
full of our individual affairs. Our
men of great enterprise "mind their
own business." aud smaller men imi
tate them. The men are not obscure
nor their uumbers few who are ready
to avow openly their contempt for
"politics" and all its belongings ; not
aware, apparently, that they thus ut
ter a biting criticism upon their own
course. Forwhate -er their published
platform of principles, the great ma
jority of our voters wish to be rec
oiled good citizens of our Republic.
They prefer to be regarded us intelli
gent and really solicitous of the public
welfare ; and it is in truth just in so
far as they fall short of their fair and
reputable ideal; lhat we are called in
question among ourselves, aud dis
trusted by foreigners,. and our insti
tutions after a hundred years yet
ranked among experiments.
Much, if uot all, that our more res
pectable papers complain of in the
way of corruption in our polities
might be corrected, if ouly our wor
thy citizens would conscientiously and
persistently discharge their political
And the real question of the hour
aud of the rcmniuder of the century
rests here. Left to themselves, to the
manipulations of mere partisans, our
institutions will not flourish ; the free
dom which they offer to all, foreign
and home born, iguomnt and learned
alike, must prove their ultimate ruin.
But let cyery one who loves his coun
try aud her best welfare simply do his
duty, and he will be both surprised
and cheered by the number of those
who are ready to imitate his well-doing,
aud whose united action will
thus dissipate every cloud in our sky.
New York Evangelist.
It is a curious fact that every
prince of the royal house of Prussia,
when young, is taught some useful
trade or other, for the purpose of
sobering the mind and bringing to
face with the material world and the
realities of life, and among the pro
lusion of curiosities and artistic relics
which crowd the emperor's private
cabinet may be seen specimens of book
binding, carviug, carpentering, and
other handiwork performed by his
sons aud grandsons.
It is unnecessary to debate so obvi
ous a question as to which side a man
and woman should respectively take.
It is always right for the trcnl'eman
to take the left, and it is then left for
the woman to take the right. Boston
