Craven reports having seen sixty- three which contained 100 In- dians, near the mouth of the creek early this morning. Troops were neiit out, but the hontiles had again returned to the Bad Lands. General Carr has sent an armed party to guard the ranch where the Indian was killed yesterday. He was a nephew of Kicking Bear. Yesterday General Carr sent a troop of cavalry up into the Bad Lands to watch the movements of the hostiles. A signal was established between the troops and camp by three relays, and in case of trouble they were to have been reinforced from here.

By Associated Press.] QUEBEC', Dec. was just received from St. Joseph, De Levis, to the effect that the west-bound Hal- ifax express went through a bridge at that place to-day. The entire train, excepting the baggage car and engine, went down. A number of passengers were killed and many others injured. Assistance has been sent from Levis. The Quebec express train from Hal- ifax ou the Intercolonial road, due at to-day, met with a frightful acci- dent about three miles from its desti- nation. The scene of the wreck was the embankment at St. Joseph. The train was running at a hight rate of speed, and, after passing St. Joseph Station, a second-class car to have jumped the track on a curve, dragging a first-class car and a sleeper with it, and also derailing the mail car and baggage car ahead of it. Three passenger cars were carried diagonally along the embankment for two hun- dred yards, the second-class car strik- ing'the western abutment of the bridge. It was in this car that the sacrifice of life occurred. The front of the car was smashed to atoms against the solid stone abutment. Three cars were turned over, the first being badly shattered. The sleeper was not so badly shattered as the others. The engine, still drawing the baggage and mail cars, passed over the bridge. After passing the bridge the mail car went down the embankment, having turned completely over in its descent. The engine and derailed baggage car continued on their passing over the second road bridge safely, and were brought to a standstill a few hundred yards further on. As soon as the news of the disaster reached this city, a number of medical men crossed the river and went down on a spacial train to the scene of the disaster, and rendered efficient aid to the wounded >assengera. The dead are five in number. Con- ductor Walker was badly hurt, and but few passengers escajrod injury. One has both legs broken, another a fractured skull, and many are cut and aruised.
