They had not gone far when they met three or four indians who ran Back toward the Camp. Whipple ordered the Camp in readiness for the Morrow. In the meantime Lieut. Rains with Foster and eleven men were sent in Advance to reconnoitre. Rains and his men Rode Over the first Rise this Side of Cottonwood and were attacked. Before Whipple could get to them after he heard the firing Rains and his whole party were killed. Cottonwood july 8. All of Josephus band arc reported to have crossed Clear water supposed to be heading for the bitter Root country. Should this be True the fight will be a running one. The infantry will prove comparatively non effective. Decisive work will have to be done by the cavalry. Gen. Sully telegraphed Gen. Mcdowell from Lewiston on the Lith that he had reliable information that Josephus band had lately received considerable accessions and it was feared that Many other reservation indians would join him. Ile suggested that 200 Washington territory or Oregon troops be called for immediately to prevent this Aud the damage that might follow during the absence of the troops until they could be replaced by the regular troops. Gen. Mcdowell forwarded Sully a dispatch to the War department and at the session of the Cabinet on the 13th he was authorized to Call for 200 volunteers in Arizona or Washington territory and to increase the number to 500 if necessary. Our internal Commerce. Tile weekly review. Concerning the situation on the Danube we have no new information from any quarters except denials of the first Hasty reports of the rapid Advance of the russians. Tirnovan is not in their Rands nor Likely to be immediately As the turks probably mean to hold the line of Zan tora if they can and Tirnovan is very favourably situated for Strong defense. The fighting thus far reported cannot have amounted to More than outpost affairs for the russians Are not yet prepared for serious work. The turkish quadrilateral remains intact and not less threatening to the 120,duo russians said to be across the Danube at Siskova than if Gen. Zimmermann had not crossed at Brail and swept the Dobro Desha. His 30,000 men must connect with the garrisons of the three fortified positions of Kus Tenji Silistria and Varna before they can Render effectual help to the army now at Siskova. In the same Way provision must be made against the turkish forces about Nicopolis and Widding before any serious Advance upon the Balkans can be undertaken. Nothing is yet known of the turkish dispositions except that the Headquarters remain at Shumla where redid Pasha minister of War has joined Abdul Kerim and a Council has been established under whose direction the Campaign will be prosecuted possibly with More vigor than heretofore As the Only Good Quality generally conceded to redid Pasha is Energy. The turkish Danube flotilla remains supine while a single Pontoon Bridge at Siskova is permitted to Supply the Large russian Force with provisions and War material. The Bridge is reported so weak that it has broken of its own weight in the past week. One Iron Clad in determined hands might place the russian army in a desperate position for the country along the turkish Side of the Danube would not maintain them Many Days if deprived of their commissariat. It was reported recently that Hobart Pasha contemplates an operation of this nature on the Danube under his personal direction but has thus far been restrained by jealousy on the part of a turkish Pasha. Nearly All accounts from the seat of War in Asia minor agree that the russians have met with serious reverses but their position docs not appear to be As thoroughly compromised As would be inferred from the earlier dispatches via Erze Roum. The most sinister feature of the russian situation is the utter absence of official bulletins from the grand Duke Michael which hitherto kept us informed of the Progress of the russians. The following Are the positions of the respective forces As nearly As can be ascertained the russian left Wing after advancing to Del Baba has now turned Back on its line of Advance and is marching on Bayzid which is still invested by irregulars from Van. It will probably be Able to defeat these save Bayzid and re establish communication with Erivan. A detached column of the Center under Gen. Heymann after a defeat at Zewin with serious loss has fallen j Back to the neighbourhood of Kars but j the siege of Kars has not been raised and the latest turkish bulletins do not give the impression that Mukhtar Pasha feels himself Strong enough to undertake its Relief. The latest advices represent that he has advanced to within fifteen Miles of the russian investing lines. There has been nothing definite from Batum since the capture by the turks of the russian positions on the same Bah and khat Ubani Heights. Both russian and turkish reinforcements Are said to be hastening Forward. The question of provisioning the armies is said to be growing serious for both sides. A casualty in a Coal m Ine. We have stated above will sufficient show its general outline. Two Days after or. Barnum a offer of a Reward reached this country the Little boy but not his a Mother a disappeared from Lough ton and the people who asked what had become of him were told that he had gone to America. It never seemed to have occurred to anyone up to this Point to connect him with the lost Charley Ross but More than one person now7 wandered As a Bare conjecture whether he could possibly be the stolen child. The next thing was to ask what name the a a veiled lady had passed by at her lodgings and among the people with whom she necessarily had to do and to the astonishment of the inquirers they found that she had All along Given the name of mrs. Ross their theory is that Charley Ross when taken away from his parents knew his own name and could not be made to forget it and consequently that the person who passed As his Mother found it necessary to her safety to take the same. If the child who has been living at Loughton is really Charley Ross and if As is supposed he has been sent to Barnum we shall doubtless hear of his arrival before Many Days. If on the contrary he is not the facts of his name his age the concealment in which he has been kept and the consignment of him to America immediately upon the offer of or. Barnum a Reward form a series of very coincidences. Singular a Thrifty tramp. Several yesterday Washington july la. The Public Printer has just delivered the first annual report on the internal Commerce of the United states. It says among other things that the value of the railroads of the United states is about Twenty three times the value of the shipping engaged in our foreign Commerce and that the value of our internal Commerce is Twenty five times the value of our foreign Commerce that 85 per cent. Of the Grain shipped from the West to the Seaboard during last year was transported on sail lines and that Over 90 per cent of the entire internal Commerce of the country is on railroads. Although the total amount of the contributions of the government up to the close of the year 1876 in Aid of Railroad construction amounted co $144, he too embracing land Grants and subsidies to the Pacific railroads yet this sum is Only 3 per cent. Of the entire Cost of the Railroad system of the country. Another Spanish outrage. Boston july la. A letter from capt.

The mate was detained five Days on Board the Cruiser when a Spanish gunboat arrived and declared the papers Correct.

A terrible calamity befell the miners at the Brookfield Coal company a works near this place to Day. The Coal is removed from the mine through a Tunnel by a locomotive. On account of the smoke interfering with the working of the mine the company ordered Anthracite Coal used on the locomotive which order was put into effect this morning. About eleven of clock the engine passed into the slope and after being in a Short time the men in charge of the engine became suddenly affected by the Gas from the hard Coal causing them to fall to the ground in a senseless condition. The Engineer managed to make his Way Back to the Mouth of the Bank and gave the alarm at which a Large number of men rushed into the Bank to Rescue their comrades. One after another they passed in but were almost immediately overcome by the Gas and they too fell insensible. After several had thus fallen a gang was organized to Rescue those who went in last and squads of four or five passed in until they came to a fallen Comrade when they would take him in their arms and carry him out to the open air. In this Way thirty six men were brought out six of whom were either dead before reaching the Mouth of the Bank or died immediately after. The dead Are John Jones superintendent Miles Davis Robert Williams Richard Jones David Jenkins John Barton William Young. Insensible William Roberts. A Charley Boss Story from England. Tho excitement and anxiety for the discovery of the lost Charley Ross has spread to England and one of the journals has an interesting Story As follows about a year and a half ago a woman wearing a thick veil or rather two veils one Over the other so arranged As to conceal every vestige of her face came to Loughton a quiet Little place in Epping Forest and took lodgings there. She had with her a pretty Little boy about seven years old with Light Brown hair. From then till now she has continued to live at Loughton always thickly veiled both indoors and out so that no one in the Village seems Ever to have seen her face. Naturally there have been plenty of conjectures As to her reasons for concealment among others that she had done something for which she was in fear of being apprehended. It is evident however that a form of disguise which could not fail to draw the attention of every passer by would be a very poor help to a person w7ho wanted to escape from English detectives. This a veiled lady a As she was generally called appears to have stated that her husband was abroad and that the Little boy was her son. She watched Over him with unceasing vigilance never allowing him for one minute to go out without her nor to get far away when they were walking together. At the same time their relations did not appear to be specially affectionate nor at All like those of Mother and son. They frequently quarrelled and the boys threat on these occasions always was a if you do so Lull there were minor elements of mystery in the Story All pointing to the same desire for concealment but what of our lawyers were visited by a Young effeminate looking fellow who represented that he was on his Way from Omaha and wanted $2.70 to help him toward Portland me. At one office he asked very respectfully for copying to do and the Good hearted lawyer having no work for him gave him half a Dollar to buy his dinner. Another lawyer gave him Twenty five cents which at first he was inclined to refuse but finally accepted asking for his benefactors business card that he might return the Money. At other places he got orders for dinners on different restaurants. Finally he called on dist atty. Bailey and repeated his request for $2.70. Or. Bailey was at first inclined to give although he remarked that $2.70 would not his fare to Maine. The boy wha is perhaps seventeen but quite Small of his age said he could go for half fare. The More the District attorney thought of it the less he Felt like granting the request and finally handing him Twenty five cents told him that would get him a dinner and that was All he could do. This sum the boy handed Back As he had done at one or two other places about the town and ingoing out slipped under the door a card on which was written vile language. Or. Bailey convinced that the fellow was an impostor reported him at Headquarters and accompanied detective Dwyer to the Whitney Landing where the boy was arrested just As he was going to Troy. Chief Maloy searched him carefully and on his person discovered two diaries in which were entered the places which he had a a worked a the names of his victims the amounts received each Day and various other data of curious interest a a what a this a said the chief As he pulled out to o cigars. A a cigars a replied the prisoner a a take one. They Are not very Good ten centers i generally smoke a Al Quot of Are a first class fraud a replied the chief and the boy was not in a position to deny the charge. He said however that he Only a a beats those who can stand it. Ile said he was born in St. James Parish la., of Creole parentage. The name he goes by is Frank Taylor although in his diary he Calls himself a Frank la Belle a which May be a pet name of hisow7n, derived from his girlish appearance. In fact he says he has been three times arrested on suspicion of being a girl in male attire the last time in Newark n. never for any offence. He says further that he has travelled with mrs. Bowers playing in a lady Audley a his diary shows that he has visited cities As far West As St. Paul As far South As Galveston and has pretty thoroughly worked Kentucky and the Western states and has just been making the tour of the Central Road. His Cash account show7s that from the 7th of last december to May 9 he took $449.-05 above expenses from May 2 to May 9 his net receipts were $35.05. His Best Days work was at Galveston March 16, when he took in $15.50. He remarks that Galveston and Houston Are the Best and most generous places he has met with.

A Book agent of this City has just returned from the Honey Lake country. The agent one Day stopped at a Cabin situated in the Edge of the Foothills. Before entering the Cabin half a dozen dogs of assorted sizes and unrecognizable Breeds started up from under stunted Pines or came running from Sheds about the place yelping and Barking like a pack of coyotes. In the Wake of the dogs swarmed Forth seven or eight bareheaded Flaxen haired children plainly All of one Breed the Forest Breed.
