Letter from Oija keva9a correspondent. timm. Austin nev., August 13th, 1865. Eds. Triau now that the.

These other statement of similar import were put Forth to the Friendly indians. The bad indians too heard that we had a great War on hand determined to take advantage of it. Some six Neeks olt col Mcdermitt in conjunction with gov. Blasdale held a pow wow with the Shoshone near this City. Mcdermitt with a Small Force of soldiers was about to take the War path against some hum Boldts Bannock who were in Hostil it to the Whites were committing outrages by stealing horses cattle whenever opportune la offered killing Whites.

In this Way the expedition marched some three or four Hundred Miles but news has recently been received that we file out on a skirmish some indians ii go on col.

The exit edition thou not meeting with the Success desired on acc omit of the indians eluding their pursuers has notwithstanding had the effect of ridding the county hereabouts of marauding thieves murderers. If col. Mcdermitt was lacking in any qualification As a commander for this Post it was in possessing too much of the feeling of humanity Christian Charity. These Are qualities though ennobling to the possessor not Well suited to the commander of a military Post in an Indian county. He took some indians prisoners on charge of larceny murder ordered them sent Back for trial by the civil authorities. Among others were four Shoshone warriors who were delivered Over to one m. S. Bonifield As a special Constable who took to his one a. K. P. Safford to assist the delivery of these warriors. A Model Pritsk. How these fledgling functionaries succeeded in discharging their important duties is fully disclosed in a re Tum to the writ made by the special Constable. It is a Model return tells its. Of Story Humboldt Cockitt state or Nevada s8. I hereby certify that i Fez acted the warrant of arrest on the 22d of . 1605, by taking into custody the Witban named John Doe Richard Boer Richard Roe John does being four Shoshone warriors found in Erato by of Caplin William Wallace a a. 8. Army at Buffalo station in taid county. A. K. P.

Quite a number took the hint acid came inside the lines the Bannock White Kunes mme. Of to Renee Shoshone staid out sit Tco then Hhas been Exi Terii nation As far As Opportunity offered. Lieut. Seamonds of Mcdermitt s command was also commissioned to take an Indian prisoner to Austin for trial but his prisoner so attempted to. Escape the bail of his posse s rifles Quot ranged High Quot or. Indian staid out. This same lieutenant with a squad of two soldiers an Indian guide went into an Indian Cambodia to arrest an Indian on a charge of larceny murder. There were about Twenty five indians present the lieutenant marched in his guide pointed out the Indian whom he attempted to arrest when the Indian resisted by striking at him the tier i a with a Dan ring weapon a of item Enron the la Eutez knt Drew his six shooter off came the top of or.

In his report he says All the of he of indians Sald he did right no hostile demonstration was made by any Indian present a few Days afterwards this same lieutenant with a squad of fourteen men went out to the head of thousand Spring Valley met a Hostie band of Rene de Indian when a regular Battle ensued. The lieutenant s part came off victorious having killed 21 lilians with the loss of but one Mai. But these Are but feeble efforts to quiet the Indian troubles. How to quiet the indians. The cd ily Way to effectually quiet the indians so Asta give Security to the Overland mail service to emigration is to Plant along the entire route within supporting distances forts manned with sufficient garrisons of cavalry. Infantry can do but Little in this kind of service. The Indian warriors Are Alj mounted. The Chi injury is so sex ten i to Mountas Riotis that infantry can March March but they will never unless by some Sti Atey come up to the Indian soldiers. There Are no set the intents where tie fighting is to be done nothing but a succession of Barren Hills Point zip to 4esei Plains. The air is so Transi Iai int that the faked Eye can from elevated positions take in hundreds of Miles. A person on on foot can see two three four Days travel ahead of him. This is ver indians know All the secret hiding places strongholds of the country All the time have their scouts out signalling the approach of troops. It was Only by a strategy that Gen. Conner was Able to come upon the indians some two years ago at Bear River. Some of the hostile indians four in number deserted came into Salt Lake Camp Douglas gave information of the whereabouts of the Indian Cash a. The general organized an expedition took these indians along for guides travelled Only at night Lay by in Day time. When approaching the Indian Camp it being in mid Winter always before Daylight a deep Ravine was selected the Snow dug Point sufficiently to hide the troops horses All gathered in burrowed up so to speak All Day using no Wood for fuel that created any smoke. They were thus enabled to come upon the indians at unawares. A great Deal is said about the government not subduing the indians but to one who has crossed the Plains it is apparent that the Small forces now there the widely separated posts Are totally inadequate to the service. Another plan is to gather the indians All together i. After you have them conquered break up their tribal relations carry them into All parts of the settlements apprentice out the Young Able bodied for a term of years the old feeble put on reservations. Why should ought to turn its Ergie to this great National work As military necessity. Let the Atlantic Pacific once become United by a Railroad ours will be a nation that May thenceforward defy ail the Powers of the world at once. It has been sufficiently Deino nitrated that in fortifications alone but Lite Reliance can be placed for the safety of a Given Point. It is in lines of rapid communication such As Only railroads can furnish by Means of which troops in in United numbers can be transported that the military strength of a nation is made to consist. With a Railroad to Salt Lake the mormons can never give trouble with a similar Road from the Missouri to the Sacramento the extremes t most exposed Post May receive the strength of the entire nation. Wbeck of the brother Jonathan. The California steam navigation Steamer brother Jonathan during the latter part of july on her trip upward from san Francisco to Portland Oregon struck a Rock about ten Miles above Crescent City Cal., sunk inside of went minutes. There were Over two Hundred passengers on Board out of the whole number Only Twenty were saved. Brigadier general Wright who had been assigned to a. Division of the military department comprising Oregon Washington Idaho territories with his wife adjutant Lieut. Waite were on Board among the lost. Those saved were the third officer thirteen of the Crew two White woman two White children one China woman her child. The sea was very rough so much so that the Steamer could not make head against it had turned was Hea Dukj for Crescent City to Lay Over until after tiie storm. The Rock she struck on is known to mariners projects some three feet out of the water at Low tide but it is supposed the Pilot was hot aware of his exact locality otherwise the Accident might have but did cd. The Bottom of the to have been shivered to 4>ieces by the collision. The Captain first officer had each lowered a boat into which a number of women had been placed among others mrs. Major general Wrights but the Bottom of the vessel coming to pieces raised up alongside of the ship she careened or rolled Over on these boats sinking them All on Board. Most of the ladies remained in their staterooms although All were apprised of the dreadful character of the Accident there was no uproar it was a Fate from which there was no escape. The Accident occurred during the afternoon the third officer with his boat rescued passengers Crew arrived at Crescent City a Little before dark. Mid notwithstanding the character of the sea other boats were manned sent out to the scene of disaster with the Hope of reselling some poor victim found clinging to the floating fragments of the wreck but none was seen All was quiet not even a floating spar could be seen to Tell the tale of grief sorrow so recently enacted there except the angry Billows of the surging sea. Long after Nightfall the boats returned having been unsuccessful in rescuing a single human being from a watery grave. Tis Lone on the Waters. When eve s Mournful Bell sends Forth to the Sunset a note of Farewell. Another Steamboat disaster has occurred in the blowing no of the Steamer Yosemite a vessel plying Between the cities of san Francisco Sacramento. The Steamer was on her downward trip had landed at a Small town called Rio Vista was posting off when the boiler burst blowing the Steamer s upper works to pieces seeding killing forty or fifty passengers injuring More than As Many Mok some ten of whom have since died. Some remarkable incidents of escape do coined. One Man was blown half Way across the River swam to the opposite Ottok. The Captain was blown ashore butt Little injury As were several of the pa88e the injured were conveyed Back Ramento where through the ministrations of the Howard benevolent society they were cared for. Personal. Major general Rosecrans after a stay Here of several weeks during which time he made a very Minnite examination of the mines of the Reese River Contay has left in route for new York to make his report which it is thought will be favourable. Major general Dana is now resident Here managing the interests of an Eastern mining company. Political. The elections of California one being for members of the legislature county officers one held afterwards for judicial officers terminated favourably to the ution party. The election this state will be held of the first wednesday of november is near at hand. A congressman members of the legislature constitute the stake. The Campaign is becoming somewhat exciting. By a clause of our Consita Tion the legislature was required to enact a registration Law which has been done by this Law none but those registered have a right to vote. The Law requires the payment of a poll tax of four dollars before being registered. The Board of commissioners sit As a Board of registration . Pass upon the qualifications of voters or parties offering to Register As a Oters. If they refuse to Register a person offering himself he May Appeal to the District court if they Register an improper person the same course May be taken. The democrats of the Copperhead persuasion complain loudly denounce this Law for the reason that it prevents them from double illegal voting but on pretence that it is requiring men to pay Money in order to exercise the right of suffrage. As the registration lists now stand it is thought the Union party has a majority in All Bat one or two counties a majority in the state. A. D. Ashley formerly of Monter Cal., is the Union candidate a. K. Mite hell formerly of Marysville Cal is put Forward by the democrats. Sta the. It is now cold wintry weather Woolen clothes sometimes overcoats Are in demand. But Little Snow As yet has fallen the weather Wise predict a mild open Winter. Hon.
