Only two thousand votes were cast against

Threatened Trouble WlUk IndlMns,
Several times mention ha3 been made of
uie opposition ol Use Indians at the Umatilla
reservation to the work of opening a road
and building a line of telegraph through the
grounds included in the limits of the reser
vation. Tlie line has been completed as far
as Baker City and in constructing it through
to Walla WaUa it is found necessary to cross
the lines of the reservation.. For some rea
son the Indians are bitterly Opposed to the
work going forward on the ground that
they regard it as an encroachment. Justly
considering the magnetic telegraph one of
the most potent levers of civil feation, these
noble red men, of the primeval forest, thiuk
they have seen quite enough of American
civilization to suit them. They, therefore,
have arrayed themselves in direct and open
hostility, and declare not a pole shall be
Slanted or a wire stretched across the illih
onated them by Uncle Ham. When troub
le was at first menaced, the department at
Washington was notified of the opposition
ot the Indians. . Orders were fonvarded at
once authorizing the construction ot the
Jine M Proppsed, through the reservation
I?"?3, " sppears from recent events
that the 'Lo V are np in arms, and do not
propose to regard the instructions given by
the government. The following dispatch,
received here yesterday from Walla Walla
will servo to indicate the spirit of resistance
among the Indians i - vi- v.
"L. MeManta, who la Just in from- Wes
ton, rejort3 that, the Indians to the number
ot 30 or 40, armed; came to the camp ot
the men engaged in building the new road
and telegraph line over the Bine mountains
last night, and drove them off, threatening
to kill them nnless they left at once, which
they did having no arms with which to de
tend themselves, and leaving all tlieir tools
and provisions. .
, Immediately on receipt of the telegram,
Mr. Piatt Burr, superintendent of construc
tion, who is now to this city, went to the
head quarters of the department of Colum
bia, and apprised Col. H.Ciay, Wood,
who is acting temporarily as, (Consnander
of the department during the abscence -of
Gen- Howard, who is now at the Dalles,
en route for Portland, was notified by, tele
graph of the condition of things." He sent
a dispatch at once to Col. Elmer - Otis,
who lias charge ot the troops at Walla
Walla, authorizing that officer to protect
the men engaged In opening the road and
building the liue, from the threatened at
tack, at all hazards.; This may be regard
ed as the termination of the anticipated
diulculty. as the Intans will scarcely have
the hardihood to openly resist the milita
ry power of the government.

Xane Express, in its review, of the
corn market, says that in consequence
of recent heavy .rains sold time is prom
ising, but the dampness has affected
most of the new crop. : Large ' foreign5
arrivals bas checked the - upward tend
ency in price but holders are stilt indis
posed to make any concession. $ Trade
is therefore inactie. At Paris prices
are rather lower, while in France wheat
is steady and dearer. .Belgium is un

steady a d inactive; Odessa firm. - Av
erages are Is 2d higher, the balk of that
sold being fully 3s inferior in price to
the previous crop. '
