The French chamber of deputies on the 16th granted authority for the prosecution of Paul de Cassagnau for violation of the press Laws. Ouster a last Battle. The Story of the massacre of Gen. Custer and his command As told by a a red horse a the chief is of thrilling interest. The narrative As interpreted to col. Wood commanding Post at Cheyenne Agency dak., has been received at Gen. Sheridan a Bead our tors. The details of the fierce struggle even As told in the unskillful Story of the Indian add fresh strength to the conflicting emotions so universally Felt of grief for the Brave general a death and Pride in the manner of it. There is some Solace for the sacrifice in the fact that the United states soldiers sold their lives so As to kill nearly Man for Man notwithstanding they were our numbered Twenty to one. Red horse with other chiefs recently came into col. Woods Post and surrendered. His Story is As follows on Greasy grass Creek was the main Camp of the Hostiles at the time. I was one of the head councilmen in that Camp. My Lodge was situated in the Center of the Camp. The unc Papas Yankton Ais and Santee were camped Northeast of me on the right facing the Battle Field. The Minnee Onous sans arcs two kettles and rules formed the Center. On the left to the West were the Ogallala and cheyennes. On the morning of the attack myself and several women were out about a mile from Camp gathering wild turnips when one of the women called my attention to a Cloud of dust rising in the neighbourhood of the Camp. I discovered that the troops were making an attack. We ran for the Camp and i was sent for at once to come to the Council Lodge. I found Many of the councilmen already there when i arrived. We had no time to consult one another As to what action we should take. We gave directions immediately for every Indian to get his horse and arms for the women and children to mount their horses and get out of the Way and for the Young men to go and meet the troops. Among the latter was an officer who Rode a horse with four White feet. The indians have fought a great Many tribes of people and very Brave ones too but they All say that this Man was the bravest Man they had Ever met. I done to know whether this Man was Gen. Custer or not. Some say he was. I saw this Man in the fight several times but did not see his body. It is said he was killed by a Santee who still holds his horse. This officer wore a Large brimmed hat and a Buckskin coat. He alone saved his command a number of times by turning on his horse in the Retreat. In speaking of him the indians Call him a the Man who Rode the horse with four White there were two men of his description looking very much alike both having Long Yellowish hair. It is believed that Gen. Custer a hair was Cut comparatively Short at the time of his death some time before this fight we were camped on the Rosebud but we moved crossed Over and struck a tributary of Greasy grass Creek following it Down to its Mouth. A Indian started to go to red Cloud Agency that Day and Wheir a few Miles from Camp he discovered the dust rising. He turned Back and reported that a Large Herd of Buffalo was approaching the Camp. The Day was very warm and a Short time after he reported the Camp was attacked by troops who had followed our Trail Down the tributary and crossed Greasy grass Creek a Little above where we did and above the Mouth of this tributary. They attacked the upper end of the Camp where the in Ciapas were and the troops set fire to the lodges. All the warriors then rallied and attacked the command in overwhelming Force and drove them in confusion across the Creek. They forced them Over a place below where they first crossed. The Creek was very High and Swift and several of the troops were drowned. After driving this party Back the indians corralled them on the top of a High Hill and held them there until they saw that the women and children were in danger of being taken prisoners by another party of troops which just then made its appearance below. The word passed among the indians like a whirlwind and they All started to attack this new party leaving the troops on the Hill. From this Hill to the Point where the troops were seen below it was open ground All the Way with the exception of the Small tributary i spoke of before. As soon As we had finished this fight we All went Back to massacre the troops on the Hill. After skirmishing around awhile we saw the walking soldiers coming. These new troops making their appearance was the saving of the others. The attack was made on the Camp about noon. The troops were divided one party charging right into Camp. We drove them across the Creek. When we attacked the whole party we swarmed Down on them and drove them in confusion. No prisoners were taken. All were killed none left alive even for a few minutes. These troopers used very few of their cartridges. I took a gun and a couple of belts off two dead men. Out of one Belt two cartridges were gone out of the other five. It was with the captured ammunition and arms that we fought the other body of troops of they had All remained together they would have Hurt us very bad. The party we killed made five different stands. Once we charged right in until we scattered the whole of them fighting among them hand to hand. One band of soldiers was right in the rear of us when they charged we fell Back and stood for one moment facing each other. Then the indians got courage and started for them in a solid body. We went but a Little distance when we spread out and encircled them. All the time i could see their officers Riding in front and hear them shouting to their men. It was in this charge that most of the indians were killed. We lost 136 killed and 160 wounded. We finished up this party right there in the Ravine. Gen. Sheridan is of the opinion that red horse meant to say that 136 were killed and 160 were wounded during the entire engagement and not in any one particular charge the troops up the River made the first attack skirmishing. A Little while after the fight commenced with the other troops below the Village. While the latter fight was going on we posted some indians to prevent the other command from forming a Junction. Some of the Young men took the clothing off the dead and dressed themselves in it. There were several men among them who had citizen clothing. They went up and attack d the other command that Way. Both Banks of the River were very Steep and difficult of ascent. Many of the troops were killed while crossing. When they got on the Hill they made some kind of fighting works and the fight was then carried on at a distance the Young men sometimes charging close up. The fight continued at Long Range until the walking soldiers came. This was Gen. Terry a column which arrived at a Point near the Battle Field on the night of 26th of june there Are Many Little incidents connected with this fight but i done to recollect them now. I done to like to talk about that fight. If i hear any of my people talking about it i always move away. The appropriation Bills.

A Oali Romian Romance. It has been said that our state is Peculiar in Many respect being As it is at what is termed the a a jumping off place of the continent of North America. San Francisco or Oakland receives the fugitives from old states in the East who Are either fleeing from Justice or from some results of a bad deed committed far off and who seek among the thousands of strangers a perfect Refuge. Hither comes the defaulting Bank cashier the forger the rec Rean husband or wife forgetting the fact that a a their sin will find them out a no matter How Many Miles Are placed Between them and the avenging ones who seek them. A Case illustrative of this has just been developed in Oakland. Some ten or twelve years ago there lived in one of the quiet towns among the Green Hills of Vermont a Young lady of repossessing appearance and unexceptionable family some of the male members of which to Day occupy High positions of Honor and Trust under both the National and state governments. This lady was wooed and won by a Young gentleman every Way her equal and Happy friends of both vied with each other in congratulations Wrhen the ceremony was performed that United them in marriage. Time passed on and the years brought to their Home Circle four children. Fortune grew Adverse and ceased to smile upon the exertions of the husband to attain that competence which is the goal of every Man who loves his family and As times grew harder in the Green Mountain state the husband resolved to emigrate to the far West and seek that wealth which seemed denied to him in his Youthful Home. During a period of some years sickness and death had been added to his other afflictions and when 3ome two years since through his wife a relatives he secured a situation As mail agent on the Dijion Pacific Railroad he took his wife and the Only remaining child a girl of four years and moved to Omaha neb. From Here his route was to Ogden and return and this necessitated an absence from Home of from nine to ten Days at a time and sometimes when his train encountered one of those heavy Snow storms so frequent in Winter in Nebraska or Wyoming his stay would be much longer. His wife during these periods had no company but her child and bore the separation with fortitude. To All appearances he was the same Loving and considerate husband As Ever and it was his custom when starting out on his trip to take the Little girl with him a Block or so from their House and then kissing her Good by go to the train and the Little one would return to Mamma. But the fiend jealousy had taken Possession of him and he resolved to leave his wife. He quietly made arrangements to be transferred from the Union Pacific to the Central Pacific Railroad Ana one morning about two years ago started As usual for the train with the child in company. His wife supposed the Little one would soon return and waited somewhat longer than usual. The Little feet however were not heard pattering to the door and she listened in vain for its childish voice. Becoming alarmed she hastily donned her outdoor garments and went to the train which was almost ready to pull out on its journey to the Pacific coast. She rushed to the mail car and inquired for her husband. The other mail agent told her that he had not jut in an appearance yet but he would soon be there and if she would stand near the baggage room she would be certain to see him. The Bell rang the conductor shouted a fall aboard a and off went the train. A Friend who knew her seeing her standing about evidently watching for some one upon inquiry was told the Story and she then discovered that her child had been taken from her. Overtake them she could not As the next train did not leave for Twenty four hours and after telegraphing and writing her husband and receiving no reply she sold her furniture and with the proceeds returned to her girlhood Home heartbroken and alone. A there she remained a while and having some friends in Northern Wisconsin paid them a visit and remaining there one year sought and procured a Legal separation from her husband the decree giving her the custody of the child. Armed with this she put detectives on the husbands track and finding that he was still in the employ of the United states As mail agent on the Central Pacific Railroad came to Oakland and putting up at one of the hotels there applied to the courts for a writ of Hareas Corpus for the child which was supposed to be boarding with a lady acquaintance of the husband. The writ was served on the lady at once but she made answer that she did not have the child in her Possession. Another writ was issued to another Fady who also made reply that the Man himself had the child with him. Lawyers were employed and an under sheriff was provided with another writ to be served on her husband but he failed to put in an appearance at his place of abode and this week has been spent in a vain Endeavor to find him. The lawyers employed by both parties had several conferences on tuesday and in the office of one of them the Long parted husband and wife met she with cold and severe aspect and be with that shame faced Ness which so became him. The negotiations for an amicable settlement were prolonged and the lawyers retired for lunch leaving the estranged couple together. On the return of the Legal gentlemen their astonishment was great for there sat the husband holding his wife a hand in a Loving clasp and her face beaming with happiness. Next Day she met the under sheriff who had the writ and calling to him said a you need not serve those papers. I think i like the climate of California and Oakland especially suits wednesday the couple were remarried and let us Hope that the dispersing of the dark Clouds which have so Long obscured the sky of their married life May leave the matrimonial atmosphere clearer and purer forever. Surely it is better to chronicle such a reconciliation than either a murder or Francisco Post. Let us invest slowly in Blue Glass. Let the poor buy flour and meat and clothes for these Are certainly Good for health and let the Rich who have a few spare dollars work out this problem for us All. Meanwhile natures old fashioned White Light is an awful Good thing and amazingly cheap a the Alliance. Or. Drink hard died in Washington the other Day. He was an abstemious Man and passed through the world at a disadvantage
