The troubles in regard to Lapwai, on the
Nez Perce Indian reservation in Idaho Ter
ritory, a short distance from Lewiston,
seems to have come to a point where a little
fighting must be done, or else one party or
the other must back down. The Walla
Walla Co of tlie Sth inst. says of tlie
matter: Just now things look as if the
isUitary and civil anthorities about Lapwai
might collide. Mr. Langford some time
ago got a judgment giving him the right
t possess the lands upon which stands
the Lapwai Agency, and the Sheriff was
ordered to put him in possession. But the
efBcers met by military force and could
net eeeafferhis writ; We understand that
the officer ia charge of Fort Lapwai has re
ceived order? ' repel by force, if necessary,
Langford, the civil atrtlwrities, or any body
else who attempts to take possession of the
premises. As there are three companies ot
troops at Fort Lapwai, it is not likely that
tne frnertff ot Aez Perce county will be
able to raise a posse sufficiently strong to
take and hold possession of tlie Agency.
As we don't pretend to be familiar with all

course being pursued on either side.

Under date of Paris, France. June 7th.
we have an account of tbe death of tlie
well-known statesman. Count Charles de
ltemus.it. "M. Remusat was one of the
most eminent orators and writers of the
French nation. He had filled manv offices
of high trust under the Government. He
was born In Paris in 1707. and was 78 vears
of age at the time of his death. In earlv
life lie studied law, and was admitted to
the bar. Ke was elected in 1830 to the
Chamber of Deputies, in which he acted
Witn tne tonservatives. His reputation as
an orator was soon established, and his ad
vancement in-political honors rapid. He
was Minister of the Interior from March to
October, 180. In 1842 he published his
essays on i-ntiosopny. which were received
with favor. He was admitted to the
French Academy in 1846 in place ot Roger
couareu. in tne constituent and leeisla
tive Assemblies in 1848 and 1849 he voted
with the friends of order.. He was a fre
quent contributor to the news-papers.
Among iiis worKS is a treatise on (ierman
Philosophy published in 1S45, "Abelard"
in 1845, and "Bacon, Savie ef Son Temps"
in isiio. Aoout tne last ocnctai position in
the rench Cabinet held by him was that

Jineaosuru statement of the prominent
Englkh agiicultural writer, S. C. Read,
viz, that oats, under certaiu circumstances.
would change to wheat, is very properly
and severely criticised by a correspondent
ot the Agricultural Gazette, who sjiy3:
"We might as reasonably expect that a
cow kept in a stable on oats and hay. and
regularly curried and clipped, trained and
driven, would produce a colt instead of a
calf." The oats having, during tlie win
ter, been covered with wheat-straw and be
ing killed by the frost, were doubtless re
placed by wheat self-sown from loose
grains in the straw. At any' rate, any
thing much less probable than this may be
accepted as the reason rather than tbe Im
possible one that oats can, under any cir
cumstances, produce anything but oats. :
