D., Nov. a num- ber of ranchmen, half-breeds and squaw men from the country west are in this city, brought by sorious condi- tion now existing among the Sioux In- dian fanatics ovor their Christ craza. Some of these men have among the Indians all their lives, but have now been rejected and they doom it unsafe to remain longer at tbe mercy of the redskins. Perfect security is felt at Pierre and, all tne count-y oast of the Missouri, and it is the general opinion that the fanaiical will die down when cold weather comes sutticient to drive tbe Indians in from their outdoor orgies. Many wake light of tbe craze, but it has a -very serious a---p'-ct from the fact that troops at Forts Sully and Ben- nett are in readiness to march against tbe Indians upon a pjomor.t's notice. ClIAMKi-.KLAT.-S S. D., Nov. 20. D-- bose, a Yank ton reservation Indian, was in the city yesterday on his way to tbe Lower Brule agency. A party of fifteen or twenty teams ioad-ed with his people accompanied him. Those Irdians are well learned and highly advanced and it has been thought that they would not be led away by the Messiah craze that is now causing so much excitement among tho Indians west of the river. But a talk with them brings forth tbe fact that they also believe in the com- ing of tbe Indian Messiah who will wipe tbe whites from tbe face of tbo earth. They are gradually being worked into a state of extreme excitement by the new Emissaries of tho Mes- siah are now working among tba Sioux Lower Brules, notwithstanding the vigilance of tbe agency authorities. An effort will be made to capture the dis- turbers and drive them from the reser- vation.

J found it necessary to increase their prices materially in order to moot tbo incroase.l cost of pro- duction, owing to the advance in the duty on raw materials. John Sloane, of the firm of Vv. J. bloane. Said yestor- aav that, although tu 5 price of carpets might have been rai-iod this fall some- what, owing to tho fact that for some time manufacturers had been selling at a loss, the new prices which will go into effect on December 1 are largely on ac- count of the increase duty. In regard to tbe amount of the in- crease in the price of carpets, Mr. Sloane osp'ain-jd tb-vt it varied. Brus- sels carpet had boen advanced ten per cent; ingrains from five to eight per cent., tapestry carpets only about four per cent and the higher qualities from eight to ten per cent.

The four aud one-half per cent bonds are open to redemption under the c'reular of October 9 and yesterday 450 were redeemed. The interest on tbo four per cent, bonds has been antici- pated to next June, and the Treasury Department is not inclined to go into tho market and purchase thorn at tho high rate thoy are held. Intimations have been thrown out thut large offers of four per cent bonds at tbe present rate will be made to Secretary Windom, and minor silver coin, of which there is in tho treasury unavailable for any purpose except change, will be taken in pay moat. No s-ich offer, how- aver, has b-jon received by Secretary Windom and ho will not indicate what action bo would mueiC the question was presented to him, preferring to decide such questions at tbo time and not in advance. As a rule, treasury oflicialstegard the proposition with favor, as it will relieve the treasury of such subsidiary coin without affecting the net balance which is available for current uses. By law, minor sliver coin to tbe amount of only is made receivable for public or private indebtedness, and for this rea- son it accumulates in the treasury, the only demand for it being for the pur- pose of change and the demand is not equal to the supply. For the past few days tbe net surplus has been gradually creeping up and now it is over 000, with SliMJOO.OlO of minor silvorcom on ban I and with in National banks. It is not tho intention of tbe Treas- ury Department to withdraw any great amount of thu Government deposits rom National banks, but to reduce deposits gradually. All things considered, tbe proposition to buy four per cent, bonds with the silver coin is ooked upon us a moans which, if the Treasury Department so desires would offer sorue rohuf to tbo rn.-i.rkot and if tbe price asked fqr such bonds is not too ligh it is reasonably probable that Sec- retary Winiora will purchase some.

General Denby is said to be per- fectly willing to cotuo homo and Con- gressman llitt, whose influence with Mr. Biaino is said to be great, is urging, it is said, that, Mr. Adams succeed him.
