They reported that the president in response to the statement of whispered 1 la had uneasiness and dissatisfaction which had been created among ids party friends by Liis appointment of democrats to Southern Ollices etc., had argued that his policy Iii this regard was not prejudicial to the interests of the Republican party and certainly was not adopted by him from any want of Earnest desire for the perpetuation and maintenance of Republican Power and principle. In the contrary it was his expectation and belief that the pursuance of this policy would promote a coalition of the old whig and various other elements naturally opposed to the democratic party in the South Ami eventually secure six or eight Southern states for the republicans.

St. Louis nov. In. This morning two men went into the Pawn shop of de. Wright no. 314 Vine Street to redeem a Valise pawned there last August. One of the men was recognized As Frank Rande the Man who killed two men and wounded another at St. Elmo 111., last August. A policeman was at once sent for and officers White and Hefferman responded to the Call. White entered the shop first and seized Rande who immediately Drew a revolver and shot him in the thigh severing the femoral artery. Hefferman struck at Rande with a Billet and seized his pistol Arm. A struggle ensued during which rande1 s pistol was discharged wounding him in the leg. Wright the Pawn broker meantime armed himself and commanded Rande and his companion named Morrison to stand still or he would blow their brains out. Morrison obeyed. Wrights clerk then shot Rande from behind the counter hitting him in the body which together with several blows on the head applied by Hefferman with his pistol felled the murderer to the floor and he was secured. Officer White was found to be bleeding very copiously and was taken Home. Ramie was also found to be dangerously wounded and was taken to a dispensary and thence to the City Hospital. Rande had on him two Large revolvers a knife a Billet and a pair of brass Knuckles. Rande is a most desperate character. He has one wound in the right thigh and another in the left breast just outside of the nipple. The lung was penetrated and raises considerable blood. The wound in the breast was Given by Wright the pawnbroker who fired at the request of officer Hefferman and during the struggle with Hefferman after receiving the wound ii the breast Rande Drew another revolver and of the muzzle of it to Hefferman a Side and but for a Lucky blow from the latter would have killed him. The Man Morrison who was with Rande seemed to be an entirely innocent party. He is a tramp however. M. Kim soy chief of police of Peoria 111., is in the Quot City and gives an account of tracking Ramie Ever since he killed two men and wounded another who were pursuing him through a Corn Field at St. Elmo 111., last August after he had robbed the House of a or. Baldwin of that place. There is no doubt about his identity As a Pawn ticket was found Iii his coat which he left at St. Elmo for the Valise he pawned with Wright Here last july and it is Likely he will he further identified by citizens of St. Elmo. St. Louis nov. 17. Three or four citizens of St. Elmo Jil visited Ramie to Day but All of them did not wholly identify him As the Man who killed the two citizens of that place last summer. There is Good evidence however to prove that he is the right Man. In an interview he told a reporter he believed in equal distribution of property and had attempted to do some of the distributing himself that he had robbed fifty seven houses during the past summer and had collected together about $1,000 Worth of property which he intended to take to a town on the Lake Shore amp Michigan Southern Road where he expected to spend the Winter luxuriously. When asked if he was not afraid of be ing lynched if lie should be taken to St. Elmo he replied a a no hanging is no worse than any other death but you can bet your Bottom Dollar i Don t expect to swing. The Devil has taken care of me thus far and i have Faith in his cuss Edness he is quite an intelligent Man. Says he Speaks seven languages and has studied for the ministry the Law and Medicine. St. Louis nov. 18. Police officer White shot by Rande Friday last died this evening. It was discovered this afternoon that gangrene had set in and the leg was amputated by hrs. Hod Gen and Hill. The patient relied slightly after the operation but soon began to sink and quietly passed away. Bande was so far improved today Quot that he was shackled by the police authorities to prevent any attempt on his part to escape. A requisition from gov. Cullom of Illinois will arrive Here to Morrow morning which will lie sent at once to gov. Phelps with the recommendation of prosecuting atty. Beach and the police authorities Here that it be complied with. It is therefore pretty certain that Rande will be taken to Knox county ill., and abide the action of the grand jury there if lie escapes report of the army. Washington nov. 15.

Ten regiments of cavalry officers 539 enlisted men 7,911 cavalry 8,350. Five regiments of artillery officers 284 enlisted Meu 2,321 artillery 2,605. Twenty five regiments of infantry officers 877 enlisted men 8,778 infantry 9,655 besides which there Are reported As non commissioned staff unattached to regiments military Academy recruits unassigned Indian scouts and prison guards amounting to men 1,877, signal corps 404 retired officers 301, and Captain in the United states army by act of Congress i aggregating officers and men 24,-51 1, of which the Force available for War is made up of cavalry artillery and infantry regiments amounting to 20,601 officers and men to which should be added the eleven general officers and the officers of the general staff serving with them together with 570 Indian scouts. The general details the operations of the army during the year referring specially and in High terms of Praise to the conduct of officers and men during the Indian War and at the time of the recent riots. It appears that Gen. Sheridan in recommending the increase of every company in the service to too men expressed the opinion that had this been done some time ago the Indian troubles would have been settled promptly with Strong probability that they would not have occurred at All. Gen. Sheridan adds the Indian troubles in this division Are Over for the present. I cannot say that they Are finally ended. Complications Are still liable to arise and our experience should teach us to be better prepared than we have hitherto been. Gen. Sherman agrees with Gen. Sheridan a recommendation which would raise the army to nearly 50,000 men but despairs of Success in such application to Congress and therefore urges such legislation As will give us 25,000 men for regiments of the line. This would make for the present 430 companies with an average of fifty eight men to a company. I believe it to be wrong and damaging to increase the cavalry at the expense of the artillery and infantry. The latter do As Good service As the cavalry Are As necessary and Cost much less for maintenance. All Are equally necessary and should be on a but the president should have the Rigutto increase companies stationed at exposed Points at the loss of others not similarly situated. The concluding portion of the report is devoted to an account of Gen. Howard a movement in Pursuit of the Nez Perces and their final capture by col. Miles. Gen Sherman says of course col. Miles and his officers and men Are entitled to All Honor and Praise for their prompt skillful and successful work whilst others by their Long toilsome Pursuit Are entitled to corresponding Eie Dit because they made that Success possible. The general Hopes these indians will be provided with Homes Iii the Spring on the Indian reservation near the Modoc where by moderate labor they can soon be Able to support themselves in peace. They should never be allowed to return to Oregon or to child Queen. I am sure you will like the Story i am about to Tell you of a Little French Princess who was married and crowned Queen of England when Only eight years old and who became a of flow at twelve. This child Sovereign was born Many Hundred years ago in 1387�?at the Palace of the louvre in Paris of whose Noble picture gallery i am sure you All have heard if indeed Many of you have not seen it yourselves. She was the daughter of the poor King Charles vi., whose misfortunes made him insane and for Whise amusement playing cards were invented and of his Queen Isabeau of Bavaria a Beautiful but very wicked woman. Little Princess Isabella was the eldest of twelve children. She inherited her mothers Beauty and was petted by her parents and the entire court of France. King Richard ii. Of England who was a widower about thirty years old was urged to marry again and instead of selecting a wife near his own age his Choice fell upon Little Princess Isabel. A a she is much too Young a he was told. A even in five or six years she will not be old enough to get the King however thought this objection too trifling to stand in the Way of his marriage and saying a the lady Sage is a fault that every Day will remedy a he sent a magnificent embassy to the court of France headed by the archbishop of Dublin and consisting of Earls marshals knights and Squires of Honor uncounted with attendants to the number of 500. When the embassy reached Paris and the offer of marriage had been formally accepted the archbishop and the Earls asked to see the Little Princess who was soon to become their Queen. At first the French Council refused saying so Young a child was not prepared to appear on Public occasions and they could not Tell How she might behave. The English noblemen were so solicitous however that at last she was brought before them. The Earl marshal immediately Knelt before her and said in the old fashioned language of the time a a mad am if it please god you shall be our lady and Queen Isabeau stood at a Little distance curious and anxious no doubt to know How her Little daughter would answer the formal address. To her great pleasure and the great Surprise of All present the Princess Isabella replied a a sir if it please god and my father that i be Queen of England i shall be Well pleased for i am told i shall then be a great then giving the marshal her tiny hand to kiss she bade him Rise from his Knees and leading him to her Mother she pre the Cambridge news.

According to the fashion of the time Princess Isabella was immediately married by proxy and received the title of the Queen of engl an a. Froissart the celebrated historian living at that epoch says a a it was very pretty to see her Young As she was practising How to act the in a few Days King Richard arrived from England with a Gay and numerous retinue of titled ladies to attend his Little Bride. After Many grand festivities they were married and were taken in state to England where the baby Queen was crowned in the famous Westminster . Nicholas. Quot a Quot Simpsons ride. I met Simpson a few evenings ago and he asked me to join him in a Little fun. He was dressed to death. Had on a boiled Piccadilly and a Rose in his buttonhole. Said i a a what a up a Ile twirled his Cane gracefully and replied a a circus want to go along a of course i did and told him so. He went and secured Good seats. He paid the admission fee. He raised the Money by Selling his fathers shot gun to a junk Man for old Iron. The performance was decidedly classical but we managed to stick it out. It May not be out of place to remark Here that Simpson like most Young men of to Day has a weak spot. It is his knowledge of equestrianism. He boasts of having Ridden mexican plugs and All sorts of ill natured animals. So when the ringmaster announced in stentorian tones that a Premium of five dollars would be awarded to the person who could ride the mule around the ring three times Simpson merely turned to me and murmured a a would you like to go on a picnic tomorrow a a a yes a said i. A fall right a he responded a a then ill just scoop in thai five dollars and Well i thought he was Over confident but i determined not to Tell him so As my Bones were not to be involved. The ring was by this time pretty Well crowded by ambitious Gamins several of whom tackled the mule to their sorrow. Then the ringmaster spotted Simpson in his new clothes and Felt proud of having such a Noble looking Young Man step Down to tackle the a fiery and Simpson looked complacently and the Fellows who hopped out of the ring wounded smiled maliciously but his courage did no to forsake him. The ringmaster looked pleased As the mule was led up. Simpson spat on his hands and mounted the animal with his legs around his neck and his hands clasped tightly into his Equator. A go in Simpson a shouted the audience loudly. Then the ringmaster snapped his whip and the mule started off. So did Simpsons off the mule head first. He Rose covered with dirt his immaculate shirt front smeared with mud his new clothes almost ruined. But he was Spunky. A a done to give it up a screamed everybody. And he did no to. He mounted the innocent looking quadruped once More. The mule ran in every direction and tried All sorts of ways to relieve himself of his Burden but in vain. He smiled just As if the five dollars were in his hand. Then the mule stood on his Hind legs and the blood commenced to Rush to Simpsons head but he held on firmly until the animal satisfied of its inability resorted to the never failing trick of rolling. After Simpson had been rolled on four or five times he suddenly remembered that old probs had announced that it would rain the following Day and there would be no use of getting that five dollars As he go on a Racket in the rain. So he gave it up. He was a sight to behold As he walked out of the tent. When he got to his House his father saw the condition of his clothes. And he waxed Wroth. And murmured a a come hither my Gay and festive and he went. The old Man Shook hands with his ear. And took him into the barn. On the Way Down he broke a picket off the Fence in a very suggestive Way. It seemed to me that there was an Indian massacre going on in the barn. When i met Simpson the next time he looked As if he Felt like clubbing himself. He looked As melancholy As a superannuated army overcoat. A a i thought you could ride a mule a i said playfully. A so i can a he replied sullenly a a but not a circus i believed food for five Days.
