The Sioux chiefs now at Washington,
were quartered at tlie Fremont. House by
the Government.' Part of tbetn became
dissatisfied with the liotel because it was a
temperance house and they could get no
whisky, and they changed to tlie Washing
ton bouse, when Assistant Secretary Cowan
notified the proprietor that Government
would pay no bills contracted by them.
These redskins seem to have acted badly
ever since their arrival la Washington, and
from the tact that, they cannot agree among
themselves, that; they, are .suspicions and,

tory treaty will be arrived at for the trans
fer ofbe Black Hills to the General Goy
- crnment. It is reported that thousands of
miners, from almost every point ot the
compass, are hurrying Into the Black Hills
. country, encouraged to risk tlieir lives and
property by tales of the fabulous wealth to
. be btaJaedln the gulches and" streams of
'V that new IJorado, and although the millr.
tary has strict orders to keep them out of
the country, coming in such numbers it
" will be simply an Imposibility to do it. If
half the stories regarding the richness and
beauty of that country be true, the whole
army of the United States would not be
, able to keep but daring and reckles white
men, who will dare any danger, face any
. undertaking, no matter how hazardous, tor
the sake of glittering gold. The Indians
may1 make some opposition, but they will
; step down and out before the reckless dar
ing and untiring energy of the gold hunters.
If the Black Hills are as represented, rich
in deposits of gold and silver, the daring
- and enterprising American will go there
and get it, despite tlie Indians or the Gov
ernment. ' i

- The btteiliornecr says that last winter Mr. J.
Taylor, of Snoqnalmle, while passing along
about a mile from Mr. Fares farm, on that
river, discovered a white man's akull. The
next day, when he Intended to ascertain far
ther In regard to the matter, there came on a
boayy snow fell, and his investigation was
rendered Impracticable for so long a time that
the circumstance was for gotten until last
week, when he. In company with Mr. Man
ning, visited the spot and found the same
skull, and also a boot with the bones of a foot
in it, besides a Ballard carbine, and a pocket
book with two dollars and ten cents in it. No
her portions of the man's bones could be
found. The remains are supposed by the peo
ple In that vicinity to be those of a crazy man
from near Cadyville, who was in that neigh
borhood some four years ago.
" Otter hunting ia recognised Industry on
the coast part or-Washington Territory. ' At
Neah bay the Indians monopolize it,, while at
t. ray's harbor white men take nearly all the
furs. The latter depend entirely on their
skiU with the rifle for their success. The
otters frequent the vicinity of the lieach for
many miles up and down the coast, bnt rarely
come in nearer than three hundred yards.
The hunter fix np short ladders at intervals
along the beach, of sufficient hight that the
surface of the water cm, be seen from the top of
them over and beyond the never ceasing surfc
On one of these the hunter will perch him
self for hours watching for tho otter, firing at
one whenever it presents itself, lie that near or
far. There have lieen occassional instances
where they have been killed at 8n yards dis
tance: Sometimes a hunter will expend a
month, shooting every day thirty orforty shots
and not kill an otter. Again, be will get two
in a day. We believe the average Is about two
a month to each hunter. Some seasons are
better than others. There have been times
when the more fortunate and skillful marks
men have killed enough to bring them tM0
andS,O0Oayeareeh. This is rare.' The furs
vary in value, and range from $30 to ISO each.

y Dates from London to the 35th Inst-,
give thU: The Mark Lane Hxpreat, in its
weekly review of the breadstuff's market,
says A drought has been felt in France
and a poor yield Is probable. This, coupled
with the abundance of grasshoppers in the
United States, will make low rates of short
duration, notwithstanding continental mar
kets are down sixpence to a shilling. ,
Late dates from California are more en
couraging for the farmers there, but it is
not deemed likely that her exports will be
more tlian 300,000. or 330.000 tons, as
agaiust nearly 450,000. for the year 1874. -
The wheat crop of the Eastern States, it
is asserted, will tall considerably short in
quality and quantity. v
The Chilean wheat crop was harvested
in February, and was a small and inferior
one, making her exports light for 1875.
Tlie stocks of lpomo grown wheat in
Belgium, Holland, Spain, France and
Germany are greatly reduced, aud the
prospects of winter wheat are not so favor
able as previously reported, especially iu
France. Germany .and Hungary, the un
exampled cold weatlier liaving retarded
the crop, while in many localities it was
badly injured by severe frosts. In France
and Germany a much smaller area has
been sown to wheat than usual, while a
larger area has been put into barley.
Australia is said to have harvested a good
crop, with 175,000 tons surplus wheat. .
The estimated surplus for export, from
the Northwestern States last year was 151,
000,000 bushels. Now, says the N. Y.
Tribime, should present apprehensions be
realized, there will be but little for export
the coming fall.
From the above reports it would seem
tliat our farmers should be In the best of
spirits, tor the Indications at present are
that Oregon will raise unusually large
crops of grain, which will be in demand at
j Home markets show little variation in
prices from last reports. Wheat is quoted
at 80c; beta, 50c; butter, 20c; eggs, 16c. '
There is considerable Interest manirlested
in the wool clip of this season, and there
are a number of buyers in the market. : In
Portland' prices range from 22 to 23c.
Dealers declare that present advices
from the East do not Justify , the ex
pectation ot . any . important advance,
and that even the present prices cannot be
maintained through the season. However,
it is believed that the fine quality of wool
which Oregon produces, If carefully re
