Stepping back over the imaginary line on the floor,with a shamed expression to illustrate her people’s dislike for the regulations that forbid them from wandering in accordance with their namadic disposition, -he continued to expatiate upon the rosy-tinted dawning of the Indians' millennium.

MANU.w, N. 1)., Nov. IT.—Enough armed Indians are now traveling about this section to run off all the cattle and kill half the settlers of this p*rt of ti)** country. Citizens are coming in from the south aud begging the officials to stir up the authorities at Washington to take some action. A friendly Indian brings warning from the Sioux reservation. Ile says the Indians propose to attack Fort Abraham Lincoln knowing that there are but fifty soldiers there Then it is there propose to capture Mandan and massacre the citizens aud burn the town The greatest alarm prevails among the people here. It is reported tHat the Indian police at Standing Rock have torn off their badges and revolted. Hi;}.CAREK KOH THE OI'THUE A K Washington, Nov. IT.—A telegram from General Miles received this morning by Major General Schofield says there seem- to be no danger of trouble with the Sioux Indians at Rosebud and other agencies. Troops in adequate number- have been stationed at the points of threatened trouble and every precaution has been taken to promptly suppress outbreaks should they occur. C INMAN- EXCITED AT PINE HIDDE. Huron, S. I)., Nov. IT.—General Ruger, commander of the department of Dakota arrive from a visit to the various posts. Ile reports having found most of the Indians quiet and no occasion tor alarm- There exists an undue excitement among the Sioux at Pine Ridge. “The late dances,” said General Ruger, “increased the excitement. ’I here seems to be more uneasiness in Pine Ridge than any other of the agencies. Should the Indians continue to carry on the j dance- and the Messiah craze, it may be I necessary for the military to civ** attention to Pine Ridge, though I hop** this will not be necessary.” SETTEEK- TERRORIZED.

I Th*-citizens of Mandan hav** practically no arms and are helpless. During the day the entire community wa- terrorized. basis for neglecting their crops, indulging in demoralizing dances aud even in disorder. Porcupine replied that nearly ail the Indians who had gone to hear this new Christ with him had gone hoping to ar nim preach some incendiary doctrine*. They were    disappointed at hearing that the    new creed re quired them to simply work ana behave themselves    and concluded on their return home not to relate strictly what had been told them, but to preach doctrines more agreeable to the Indians, lhese men, said Porcupine to Lieutenant Robertson, are all liars, and they are responsible for any trouble that occurs— not tile new Messiah. Porcupine cited one case in point of a Sioux warrior whom he heard of but did not know. Ibis man preached that the new Christ told them belief in his new religion gave the Indians a charmed life against the whites. From this arose insolence and trouble. Lieutenant Robertson obtained from Henry Reed, an Arapahoe interpreter, an intelligent half-breed, information which, if true, would establish the identity of the so-called new Messiah. Reed says he is a Piute Indian named John Johnson, a very intelligent but not an educated man. This man lives on Walker Lake reservation where the other Indians claim to have seen the new Christ. Reed reports the Arapahoes arc witch excited over the doctrine ami that many of them have even torn down their houses and sold the logs. Reed says the agent aud Indian police have entirely lost control over them. From all Lieutenant Robinson could learn, Porcupine’s influence has been constantly exerted for good and in tile line of what in* claimed the new Messiah told him, in contradistinction to the preachings of the other red skin mi-siouaries. Appended to the lieutenant s statement is the statement of Porcupine, as written down by aid of an interpreter. It is a lengthy one, describing in detail h**w ne first heard of the new Christ and the various stages of the journey of himself and companions to meet him. He said the people at the point where the new ( hrist wa- seemed all good people, though of many tribes. There was no fighting or drinking. The * Liefs of th*-home tribe brought word from tim Messiah to remain fourteen days in camp, when he would come to see them, IL* sent them something to eat, like a big white nut.

IT.—At the trial of the O’Shea divorce case this morning Mrs. Steele, a sister of Mrs. O’Shea, whom the latter charged with adultery with Captain O'Shea, took the stand and denied the charge made against her. Due of the jurymen insisted that the petitioner be cross-examined on the countercharges made by his wife. In summing up the evidence to the jury. Justice Butt dwelt upon the charge of connivance made by Mrs. O'Shea, and asked why the necessity for all the disguises resorted to by Parnell if the petitioner had connived at his wife’s infidelity. After further evidence was offered by the petitioner, the i-ase wa- given to the jury, which returned a verdict that adultery was committed by Mrs. O’Shea and Parnell The court granted a decree of divorce to petitioner and also awarded the custody of their younger children, the costs to be paid by the co-respondent. The I to tin TeHyruph publishes Parnell's political obituary. It says he must cease for the precut, at lead, to lead the nationalist party. It is reported that the followers of Parnell do not desire him to retire unless of his own volition, in which event the leadership of the Irish party will be ve-t< d in a commission of which Justle McCarthy will be president. The case is the talk of London, eclipsing ai! other topics, and th** newspapers have found -ome difficulty in answering the demands of circulation. The limes is printing the evidence word for word, a.- in the Tipperary trial-, and it is reported that a l inus pamphlet will be is--uea containing a complete narrative of the case when concluded. The statement of counsel that Mr Parnell rode belli 1 d horse** named President, Dictator and Home Rule, is commented on by the conservative press as indicating Mr. Parnell's ambitious designs in respect to th** future of I reland. lain McCabe stirred the board of bishops to anger by introducing a resolution providing for a series of missionary meetings to be held in the various cities, at each of which one of the bishops should be present. In connection with his motion the chaplain read a list of the bishops (comprising nearly one-half of the board) who, he said, had nothing to do from now until next April. This insult to the board of bishops, as Bishop Mallalieu termed it, in the course of the heated debate which followed, stirred the reverend superintendents deeply. Bishops Bowman, Merrill, Foss, Andrews and others dipped into the chaplain very warmly, declaring that they had, as it was, all the work they could do, and yet expressing entire willingness to do more whenever possible, but at the same time sharp'y commenting on the implied attack now mad** upon them. Finally McCabe was induced by his friends to withdraw his motion, or that part of it relating to the bishops, aud the serenity of the meeting was restored. It was a very lively scene while it lasted, though. ASSAULTED BY RUFFIANS. An Old Soldier Nearly Stabbed to Death in Des Moines. Bin Life Barely Save*!

Chicago, Nov. IT.—General Miles accompanied by Colonel Corbin, returned tins morning from St Louis, where he yesterday had a consultation with Secretary of War Proctor concerning th** alleged Indian trouble in th** northwest. Colonel Corbin said to-day there is doubt if the Indians were to decide upon an outbreak they could do much harm. They have abundance of firearms and ammunition, plenty of horses and large supplies of meat. But winter is coming on and the officer** hardly think there is any immediate danger of an outbreak. Colonel Corbin said the stories of evaeu-tion of districts by -ettiers in North Dakota are overdrawn. There may be some fearful residents who, fearing the red-skins may have left their homes, but the stories of wholesale evacuations are absolutely without foundation. We have made, he'said, a careful estimate of the number affected by the Messiah craze and there are in all not to exceed 30,000 Indians. Of this number, perhaps one-fifth are able-bodied warriors, and one-half or fifteen ii msand could bear arms. Such a body 01 course could do much harm if their movements were not properly arrested, but we have taken measures to intercept any outbreak. General Miles has received from the post adjutant at Fort Custer. Montana, the report of Lieutenant Robertson, who I carefully investigated the new religious at Cheyenne Agency.

I had heard that ( brist had been crucified, said Porcupine, and I saw a scar on this man’s wrist and on his face. Next evening we assembled again and besting, then trembled violently aud then lay dow’ii apparently dead. while w*-darned all night. Next morning sat down among with us saying man who made see around you. Heaven and have seen your dead friends and have seen my own father and mother. In the beginning, after God made the earth, they sent we back to teach the people but the people were afraid of me and treated me badly. This is what they did to me (showing ins scar-) I found my children were bad -0 I w**n„ back to Heaven and left them. I told them that in so many hundred years I would come back to see them. My father told me the earth was getting old and worn out and t he people getting bad, and that I was to renew* everything as it used to be and make it better.” Porcupine added that the Christ said all Die dead were to be resurrected, that they were all to come hack to earth, and that as the earth was too small for all now he would do away with Heaven and make earth itself large enough to contain all. He spoke to us about lighting and said that was bad and that we must keep from it; that the earth w*as to be a1! good hereafter: that we must be friends with one another. Ile told us not to quarrel or strike or fight or shoot one another: that the whites and Indians wer** to be all one people; he said if any man disobeyed what he ordered his tribe would be wiped from the face of the earth. We must believe everything he **aid and he would know our thoughts and actions no matter what part of the world we might be in. I thought all he said was good. added Porcupine. When I got back I knew that my people were bad and heard nothing of all    this so I got them together and told them of it aud warned them to listen for their own good. I told them just what I have told you here to-day. If you think I am not telling the truth you can go and see this man yourself. I will go with you and I would like some of my people who doubt me to go too. The Christ talked to us all in our respective tongues. You can see him in your sleep any time you want to after you have once met and shaken hands with him. Lieutenant Robertson, in partial corroboration of the story that Piute Johnson is the Messiah referred to, says Reed told him Johnson had tattoo marks on his wrists. He is quite wealthy In horses and cattle. ANOTHER OCEAN HORROR. I liinj-Kislil I ctKoiH mill One Hunrireil Animal- Drnvv nt-*l. London. Nov.

IT.—After weeks of hard work and patient watching detectives arrested Harry Daniels, alias Sheedy, who. they say, is a veritable modern I 'agin. Five weeks ago the officers were informed that Daniels had fitted up rooms where he daily gave instructions to a ti ass of young street gamins in the art of all kinds of thievery. Dummies, it was alleged, were rigged up and the youngsters taught how to extract the pocket-books, jewelry and handkerchiefs without ringing one of the many bells hung about different parts of the clothing. They were also, it was charged, shown how to work transoms, pick locks and to extract articles of value from show windows and cases. Last evening the officers saw Daniels and two of his pupils in front of the Park Theater, and placed them under arrest. One of the little fellows whose name was not known slipped out of his overcoat, which he left in the grasp of the policeman, and scurried down the street. The other, who gave his name as Joseph Clare, together with Daniels, was taken to the Harrison street station I he boy admitted that he had been taking lessons in thievery from Daniels. This morning, however, when arranged before a police magistrate he retracted his former admissions, and they were fined for vagrancy. _ It** Excellent Qualities Command to public approval the California liquid fruit remedy Syrup of I’ igs.

Chicago, Nov. IT—Dispatches from Joliet say that the sentiment down there is hourly growing stronger that O'Sullivan has made a statement of his connection with the t ronin murder, as outlined in the Evening yews last week. Judge Longenecker is now of the same mind. “I look at the matter in this way ” said ’he state's attorney, “that this confession of O'Sullivan is nothing new. By that I mean that it is the same story which his friends have known all along, and which O'Sullivan himself would hav** told if he had be**n allowed by tile attorneys for the defense. They were afraid to put him on the witness stand in his own defense for fear he would draw out that very story.” “Then you think he ha- made a confession ?” “He may have made a confession, but it i- more likely that th** story has simply leaked out through his friends or by words dropped by him. Anyhow, it makes no difference with the state.” “What is rite state going to do about it? Could O’Sullivan be brought back here as a witness?” “Db, no. He will be left right there where he is. He did not speak in time. His testimony couldn't help its, in view of tile fai ts we have on hand. This story that h** tells is not complete. If he can go ahead and furnish us with something more tangible we may do something. Then, too, he has not confessed anything to us, nor has he had any dealings directly with the state.” Failures on the stork Exchange. New York, Nov. IT.—At 12:20 Gregory.
