LATE FROM EUROPE.
PEACE TREATY SIGNED !
Dated from Europe are lo ilio 6ih of April.

The 30th of March. The event uai on-

England the church bolls were pealed.

Gen. MouravicflT has received reinforce'
tnonts by way of lite Caspian Sea and Tif-
lis. The city of Parma and the surround
ing country has been laid under a state of
siege on account of the number of asasi
nations. Mr. Buchanan was to lea.ee for
New York on the 9th April, after fimt vis
Ml)g Taria nnd the Ilajuo. Walter Savage
Landor has addressed an appeul lo The
London Timet in behalf of Louis Kossuth,
who he declares to be in the utmost want.
Kossuth has declared himself greatly mor.
lifted at its publication. There is no ex
citement whatever in England with regard
to tbe difficulties with this country. A ro
view of 100,000 men is to bo held at Paris
n the signing of the Treaty. It is ru
mored that the Emperors of Russia and
Austria have respectively promised to visit
Tans soon after the conclusion of pence.
Napoleon is going lo send an expedition lo
Colon io Madagascar. Very bad feeling is
exhibited by Russia and Prussia towards
Austria. The Queen of Spain has per
formed tho annunl ceremony of washing
the feet of the poor. So ulsu has the Em
peror of Austria.
The Paris correspondent of the London
"If we make up accounts, perhaps ihe
contract in in favor of Russia, to whom
more has been given up ihun she lias re
nounced. Such a result ia naturally the
case, because it was rcverthe intention of
England and Franco to punish 'Muscovite
aggression with conquest involving loss of
territory, or permanent occupation. '
Accounts irom uronstact assert that a
squadron was ordered to be got ready for
the middle of May, but for what purpose
was not publicity known. It was rumored
that Us object was to convey the Emperor of
Russia and one of his brothers on a visit to
France and England. " This report was
strengthened by the fact that orders had
been given to engage plluis well acquainted
with the coasts of both those countries.
A Brussels journal says that tho coro
nation of the Czar will take place about the
Slst of August, and wiih great pomp.
Advices from the Crimen state that tho
xvca'her had become so intensely cold that
the troops found it absolutely necessary to.
shut themselves up in I heir tents mid huts.
It may be confidently expected thai the
j-ear 1837 will be far advanced before the
last man and lliel.tst cargo of shells can pass
tho Dardanelles on their way homeward.
Nor is any haste necessary in cunpleiing
the evacuation. Tho allies have accumu
lated largo stores, and assembled a great ar
my for the defunse of Turkey, and I litre is
no reason that they should incur iho ex
pense of new transports and a greater em
ployment of labor, in order lo hurry back
vith such speed as may gratify the desire
of those whom ihey savod to be quickly
rjrl of them. Tho presence of the Western
forces ' in tho Cast is only a question of
The details connected With the Danubian
Principalities and the liberties of Ihe Chris
tian subjects of the Porto, are the points
to bo arranged in the renewed Conveners.
The Porto objects to any occupation of
Turkey by the allied forces, and it is possi
ble that the point will bo waived, if the
Powers are satisfied as to tho safety nnd
privileges of the Christians. If. the return
, home of the allied armies is performed leis
urely, the feeling in official quarters is that
a sufficient force will remain for many
teMtu t ke?,n fanaticism in check. It
grows confirmed ifct the situation of Italy
svill form a subject of delioi'R'ion SeMre
the Conference dissolves.
The Emperof of Russia, in an imperial
manifesto, proclaims peace, "the object of
the war having been gained by the security
acquired for the privileges of Christians
In the East." To avoid future collision,
It is added, a fresh frontier line for Bessa
rabia has been conceded.
Advices from Berlin, of March 31, says :
Our Berlin papers begin to talk openly of
the marriage of Prince Frederick William
with the Princess Royal of England. fne
Trince will visit England at ilia conclusion
trf the spring revfews, and will return, it is
hoped, an Accepted suitor.

Miss Feltetl oi Mcarugua.
Mis Pellc.it, a lady who from travel in
and acquaintance with the leaders of the
present regenerating movements in Nica
ragua, is wi II qualified for the labor, de
livered an ad lress at Lyceum Hall, last eve
ning, concerning that country, which was
very respcclubly attended.
After giving a rapid but succinct sketch
of the lii.-tory of that country since 1823,
staling that hardly any two years had pas
sed without a revolution, the lady described
Gen. Walker movrmen's somewhat in
detail : agreeing fully with our published
account, and allowing that instead of an
invasion, tho whole affair was but those-
c ptance of an offer from the more woalthy
and intelligent class of people, residents
there. The advance of the army j its re
ception at various points ; the character of
the people, and their friendly feelings to
wards the existing order of things, were
clearly limned. Alpiding to the political
state of aflairs, tbe lady observed that Gen
Walker's government had been acknow
edg. d by the Catholio clergy and was a
fixed fact. The country is quirt and old
feuds have been healed. As fifty-six men
initialed tho movement in tha't country, it is
prolmUe ihe thousands now there and tend
ing thither, will he able lo mnintain it.
Presidi'iit Pierce's message had no unfavor
able effect nor will have.
Tho chief object of popular interest is tli
arrival of steamships which usually bring
reinforcements of strong, stalwart men,
suitod ton country's regeneration. Allutl-
ng lo the complications with other Central
American States, and Costa Ilica especial
ly, they wore not considered at all danger
ous. Walker needs American Assistance
to develop the country, but its government
is established. Somo speculations as to
what the land will bo when its Jack sons and
Clays mount t lie s'agc, and a greater civili
zation is attained, closed ihe very agree
able and instructive discnurse, which was
warmly applauded. New Orleans Cres

MOVEMENTS OF COL. VAUGHN AN U GEN. HAR
NEY THB INDIAN TRADERS.
Correspondence (Feb. 36, of Tbe Nebrnskian.
Chinking that a few notes from Camp
Desolation would not be unacceptable lo
le benighted denizens of the lower regions,
I take advantage of the outgoing mail to
commnnicate them, although I have noi
much of news to write. In fact, we are
too far away from nowhere (close by where
it tie empties into nothing, you know,) to
get any news. We did get the President's
Message by last mail, and also the Nelrat-
ian, for which we aro duly thankful.
Col. Vaughn, Indian Agent, arrived
here on the 3d inst., from Ft. Clark. lie
eft there about the 28th Dec., ' and came
down in the coldest time, thermometer 36
deg. below zero. Me said he left at that
inie because he was afraid to remain long
er, and says that he is prepared to hear of
the Fort being burnt up at any time. This
does Co' look like peace very much.- In
fact, some more of .hose devils must be
whipped. Meanwhile, nbont ten of the sev
eral bands who have got a "big scare" on
them, are now waitirg for the grand Coun
cil of Peace or War, H come off on the 1st
of March proximo. The Platte, Brule,
Winneconges and Ogelales, and one other
fragment, the ones who so groaly insulted
the agent, Vaughn, last Summer and Fall
are not here, nor will they be present.
Of course, therefore, they will be fit sub
jects for ano;her Summer's operations.
Gen. Harney returned here from L'eau
qui Court on the 15th inst., having been
absent sixty days. He walked all the way
down and back went down on snow two
feet deep, and back on ice total distance
about 490 miles ! This, in the dead of
Winter, with mercury 34 deg. below zero,
is no trifle. It is said that Gen. Harney
found the squadron down at L'eau qui
Court in such a ''used-up" state that it
eoufJ not go on down to Sioux river this
Winter, as was contemplate;!, bat '.t will go
on ice breaking on.

they should cesae to exist. Millions on
millions of dollars have been made by
traders amongst these Indians, which is the
causoof all their present troubles, poverty
and crime. For two pints of common sugar
lby purchase a bulfi.lo robe! and other
skins and p. Itrles at like rates, either in
sugar, coffee, tobacco, powder and ball, ic.

10 kill hundreds of thoutondt of buffaloes
every year, merely for iho robes, casting
away the meat, Or else selling it, too, to
these same traders for a trifle, who cure It,
and sell it back to the Indians at ono thou
sand per cent, advance. In this way ihe
buffalo which would have lasted for centu
ries are fast becoming ex'.inct, and, ergo,
the Indians must tlttrve.
Sulh are some of the evils of permitting
traders to carry on traffic amongst Indians,
Other evils exist full as great, and worse
in a political apecl, by filling up tho Iron
tiers with a band of half breed, Canadian
French, renegade "Native Amcricaus," al
together making a kind of Salmngun boa
tile to peace, virtue, industry, or even any'
thing honest or praise wort liyJn the pursuits
of life. And from such the poor Indian
gets his instructions, his schooling nnd ad
vice. Strang develmx-meets may yei tic

Legislature was alibol on freedom ; in

honest, and capable men, becauso the last
would not be its tools. Ihe members from
your own county suited ihe ruling spirits,
one of whom said, "They were just the

democracy I am against, and if elected I

causo until public sentiment approves tho
principle, tho passage of a law that eannot
be enforced is worse than useless.
Of my opponents, I only remark that
heir greatest misfortune ia ihnt they bear
tho indorsement of ofiice-holders in this
citv, whose praise "ought to bo a reproach,
and whoso influence without office would
