The consulates of san Francisco june 28 the latest intelligence at Headquarters from the indians is to the effect that Joseph and his followers Are encamped near Salmon River at the Mouth of White Bird Creek about six Miles from the scene of the late fight with the troops under col. Perry and eighteen Miles from it. Idaho. They Are said to number All the Way from 99 to 400, the warriors accounts differing. A number of renegade indians from different bands have joined Joseph on Salmon River. Lieut. Trimble with his company and Volunteer detachment will to night be at slate Creek where about fifty citizens have fortified and hold the place. Gen. Howard intends to reconnoitre and hold Joseph in Check till the remainder of the troops arrive from the forts when a Battle May be expected. No further murders have been reported though the latest information is that the indians on Hangman a Creek Are getting very restless and a portion have refused to accept any part of the reservation and left with one of their peaceful chiefs. It is reported that Joseph is anxious to have a fight with the troops and he will undoubtedly have an Opportunity within a very few Days. The agent at Lap Way is confident that few of the treaty indians will join Joseph and parties claiming to be Well informed claim that the indians North of the slate and Clearwater Rivers will not assist him As the Nez Perces declined to help them in the War of 1855-6. The Unadilla will be prevented from joining the hostile indians with much of a Force and from the Boise Section there Are no indians to come.

Under the Willows and Tamarisk there were collected last night about six of clock boats and men. At eleven of clock they began to Cross. Both during the Cross in and afterwards they suffered seriously from the fire of two batteries and from the Rifle fire. One gun standing alone fired with steadiness and precision and created some damage but although the men suffered the boats went and came until men enough were collected to hold their own when the morning dawned. Drago Miroff a division of the eighth corps was the first to Cross. The turks fired the last round a Little after one of clock to Day. On the turkish Side the Bank presents Low Cliffs and Steep Deli cities and behind that More gradual ascents but always forming perfectly defensive positions which were in fact but feebly contested. On the right of the russians opposite Siskova All to Day three batteries of Field artillery firing slowly have helped to crush the opposition of the turks. To the left of the Landing place concealed among Willows Are More batteries and further to the left still horse artillery. From that position a whole Fleet of turkish Craft is visible. One of them is a War vessel. Its inactivity is unaccountable. Between one and two to Day the first russian gun was ferried Over on a stage supported by two pontoons and by that time the column of wounded ceased to pass. The character of the resistance May be estimated by the fact that so far As known at present there Are Only 140 wounded and giving a fair proportion for the killed it May be said that the russian loss has been about Gen. So Beloff a division of cossacks is on the Road to Sim Nitza from somewhere up the River. Its chief who is to Lead the advanced cavalry of the army has just arrived Here. Though the russians have passed Here easily it has not been so higher up the River near Turnn a Gurelli where their attempt has failed. We must therefore suppose that Sim Nitza will become the chief Point of passage for other corps than those originally destined to Cross Here but As matters stand one corps Only the eighth will have gained a March on the turkish army. Long before this reaches England other corps will be on the Southern Side interposed like a wedge Between the turkish armies at Widding Andrut Schuk. The russians wisely Drew a thick veil round their movement at the last moment placing sentries on every Road and suffering no Man to pass. They then passed higher up the River than were expected. The russian left is in great Force near Firsova and is being constantly strengthened. The right has secured the crossing at Sim Nitza with ease so that the danubian passage is secured. The Center has the Choice of concentrating upon the right or left Wing and crossing unmolested Widding and Niko poli Are isolated from the turkish quadrilateral and pics the conduct to be observed by Federal officers in relation to elections.

Married in new Orleans thursday june 7. 1877, at 5 30 p. Rn., James m. Walpole and Monnie m daughter of the late George w. Put hard. Died Jane 7. 1817, at 8 30 p. Rn., mouse wife of James m. Walpole. The above from a new Orleans paper is the simple announcement of one of the most sorrowful stories it Ever Falls to mortal pen to recount. Monnie m. Pritchard of new Orleans was a Beautiful gentle very intelligent girl. She was a Cousin of or. William Alpin. O this City and some time ago visited Cincinnati and the North for the first time. She expressed great Delight with the North and Northern people. Her visit of a few weeks in Cincinnati stretched itself out to Manv months before she left finally for her Southern Home she naturally had Many friends and admirers. Or. James m. Walpole City editor of the new Orleans Picayune had been devoted to her for four years and at length on the 19th of june they were to have been married. Before the Happy Day came miss Pritchard was stricken with sudden fatal sickness. Thursday june 7, it became Plain that the Lovely girl could not Tarry longer among the Livin Quot. They told her so and she sent for her betrothed and asked to be married to him before she died. A a yes a said or. Walpole a if she is to die i want her to die As my the solemn marriage ceremony was performed hurriedly and sadly while the gentle soul was even then passing into eternity. Three hours after she was dead and or. Walpole four years a Lover three hours a husband and now a widower has Only her Sweet remembrance left commercial. The hew farms of a year. Does anyone know How Many new farms were opened in the states and territories last year How Many log Cabins have been built How Many acres of Virgin soil slowed up for the first time it to not probable that anyone does know with exactness but there is a Little table in the report of the Secretary of the Interior presented to Congress some time Aero which furnishes the material for an approximately Correct answer to these questions. During the year ending with june last there were taken up under the Homestead Law 1,875,909 acres. New land taken up under the Homestead Law is for actual cultivation and is generally taken in lots of 160 acres. It would appear therefore that More than 17,000 new farms were commenced last year under the Homestead Law alone. But this is not ail. There were sold during the year 640,961 acres for Cash and 137,b40 acres were allotted on military land warrants. It is no doubt True that a portion of these 778,331 acres were Bough t or entered by other than actual settlers by speculators or by persons who made investments of this nature for future purposes. It would be fair to estimate however that one half of the 778,331 acres were purchased or entered for the purpose of immediate settlement or cultivation and this calculation would give us 2,433 More new farms of 160 acres each. There were also 11,048 acres entered upon the Sioux and Chippewa half Breed strip and 607,984 acres taken up under the Timber culture Law. Leaving these latter items out of the calculation we have an aggregate of about 19,500 new farms commenced during the year. This Means 19,500 new Homes. In five years from now these 19,500 farms under Good management ought to produce annually some 20, he too bushels of wheat some 46,000,000 bushels of Corn and some 400,000 head of cattle or Swine a making provisions More than enough to furnish meat and bread for new York City for a whole american.
