1 Indian Campaign.
The Orcgonian gathers some facts in
relation to the campaign, to be prose
cuted this winter against the Indians of
the plainst from the St. Louis papers.
The plans as projected and now in prog
ress, include the services of 5,000 troops?
divided into eight bodies, the whole un
der the command of Phil. Sheridan, who
are moving simultaneously from the east,
north and west of the location of the hos
tile Indians, and will cover the country
and force them toward the western por
tion of the Indian Territory, or the re
gion intersected by the 35th parallel of
latitude and 105th meridian. It is ex
pected that the converging columns wiil
thus be able to compel the Indians to
surrender and be placed on reservations,
or will chastise them into peace.' The
hostile warriors number between three
and four thousand, and will hardly be
able to resist the forces now being sent
against them. They have never known
Uncle Sam before to take the "war path"
with the winter coming on. '"
According to the statement just pub
ILeWd iik-- work -by". 'A. II- - Jaokson, of
New York .city, the Indian wars of the
last thirty-seven years has cost the Gov
ernment $290,000,000. - The Black
Hawk war cost $5,000,000 and 400
lives Florida war, $150,000,000 and 1,
. 500 lives; Sioux war of '62, $40,000,
000 ; Cfysvenne war of '64, and another
difficulty with Sioux, $60,000,000; the
war which commenced in 1867 with the
Cheyennes, and which is not yet settled,
has already cost some $15,000,000. The
"cost of Indian wars on this coast is put
--doWfl at $30,000,000... It is to be hoped
that this winter's campaign will that
' oughly civilize our red brethren, and
stop this expensive warfare forever.

but was about yielding, merely making a
few objections for conscience's sake. j
Near these two passed a couple of

of California in early times. In one
place Mr. S. obtained three bits in wash
ed gold in coarse grains from a singfe
pan ordirt, carrying the dirt fifteen miles
to wash it. The dirt was not scraped
from the crevices of a ravine but was
taken from a hill of gravel. Water could
be got upon these gold fields and imi
