Taylor, United States Consul at Winni- peg, British North America, under date of June 19, writes to the Secretary of State that, about the 1st of May, throo residents of Manitoba, who were trading with the Indians for furs at White Mud Jtivor, near Wood Mountain, were met by a party of eight men, led by one Charles Hart, and representing themsel- ves to be authorized by the Marshal of Montana. They seized several hundred buffalo robes and the effects of the traders, on the ground that they were trading with smuggled goods on Amer- ican territory. Consul Taylor had writ- ten to the Marshal of Montana to ascer- tain whether Hart was acting under le- gal authority, being of the impression that it was a pretext for robbery.
