In view of the lato reports from the
Black Hills and the Cheyenne and
Sioux county, the following from a letter
which appears in the Sioux City Times
will be not without interest : - For some
months it has leen a matter of the wild
est conjecture as to what the large pack
trains ot Mexican jacks were being
organized for at and in the neighbor
hood ot Cheyenne. Several hundred
packjacks have for weeks been centered
in the neigb rhood of Fort Russel and no
person, not even the officer in command
of the post, was let into the secret use
to which they were to be put. The
writer of this knows whereof he speaks,
and the following are the facts : The
post or military camp in the Black
1 litis is to be moved out. Gen. Crook,
commander of the department of the
Platte, has for some time past prophesied
and looked forward to an Indian war in
the event the commissioners appointed
to treat for the Black Hills failed in
their mission with the Indians. The
General is an old Indian fighter and
means business. He proposes to make
a winter's campaign against tlie Indians,
which is the only manner in which they
can be successfully punished. He will
have do wagons cr commissary stores.
The pack-train is to accomjwiny the cav
alry to carry their supplies while pursue-
ing the Indians. As soon as the pack.
animals are to be killed and the cavalry
to pack what food they can on their
horses. When the food is gone they are
then to kill their horses and eat horse
meat and still koep up their pursuit ot
the Indians, who when overtaken, are to
get such a chastisement as will teach
them that for once in many years they
are to receive a dose of the medicine
that was formerly administered to them
by Sully and Harney. That an Indian
war is imminent is now heyoud question,
and that Gen. Crook is fully prepared
tor it will be demonstrated in a few

Capt. Sawyer Conduct.
From the Victoria Colonist we copy
the following, which shows how the
heartless conduct ot Capt. Sawyer is
there regarded :
When the Captain of the Orpheus
was told there was a hail and cries of
distress from the steamship, it was but
natural that he should first concern
himself about the' safety pof his-own'
vessel and ascertain that she had not
sustained damage sufficient to cause her
destruction. lie says, that he sounded
the pomps and found her making no
water, and then goes on to say that the
bail ot "ship ahoy!" from the steamer
was reported to him by the man at the
wheel. Having ascertained tliat his
6hip was all right he "commenced to
shorten sail;" but why did he not put
about and run dowu to the steamer ?
The hail must have shown him plainly
that the steamship needed assistance ;
and it seems strange that if cries of
distress from the people on the steam
ship were heard by others on board the
ship that the Captain did not hear them.
We trust we shall not be considered as
judging this man harshly, or adding
one pang to the anguish which (if he be
animated by the common dictates ot
humanity) must wring his heart when
we say it is perfectly clear that it he
had answered the hail, ran down to the
steamer and sent bis boats to the rescue,
not a soul of the large company that
perished so miserbly almost within sight
of our harbor need have been lost. The
agony of mind our friends on the steam
ship suffered as they saw the lights ot
the ship fade away and realized that
they were left to their fate must have
been ' terrib'e indeed. All the facts
connected with this disaster will never
be known; but enough has come to hand
to show that there was culpable care
lessness on the one side or the other;
that on the part ot the steamship there
was a lack of discipline and a want of
speedy and safe methods for launching
the boats ; and that on the part of - the
ship there was (an apparent) indifference
to the cries of distress which arose from
the sinking people. We trust that tnis
matter will be sifted to the bottom, and
that the brand of responsibility tor the
lofs ot life and property will be indelli
blv affixed to the jrailty parties to be
worn noon thesr brows as a mark of
Cain to designate them as murderers,
' Sorely the President will not pardon
Des Anges, who has been convicted ot
conspiring with other scoundrels to de

The crime of his confederate smugglers
is light compared with his,for they were

ment to prevent smuggling; he adds
deliberate and long-continued perfidy to
fraud; and were it not that President
Grant has bestowed pardons in maoy
other very "bad cases we would never
dream of uttering a note of warning now:

A Munchausen Story.
The Sonora Democrat of the 2d has
the following : As the Sonora and Mil
ton stage was leisurely approaching
Tuttletown on Wednesday evening,
dogs were heard baying opposite a deep
cut just ahead. As the stage approach
ed, there was a terrible racket in the
brush, the dogs made a grand rush, and
a huge California lion bounded aboard
and seato4 himself by the side of the
only outside passenger a Chinaman.
The Chinaman only gave a momentary
glance before be yelled, "Me no likee I
All same China devil, good by John,"
and then the driver and his strange pass
enger had the outside to themselves.
By this time the team had become res
tive and started on a half gallop down
the grade, pursued by the dogs. As
Sam had .a splendid stretch ot road
ahead, he had ample time to note the.
graceful bearing of the liou, aud he says
the animal in the most engaging manner
imaginable showed, him the finest set of
teeth he ever saw in his life. Iu a few
minutes the stage emerged into an open
fiatfwith cattle feeding on either side,
and as the vehicle came whirling along
enveloped iu a cloud of dust, the bark
ingot the dogs and the growling of the
lion became so violent that it stampeded
the cows and horses. By this time Sam
began to perceive that affairs were get
ting a little mixed, and he gave the
lion a cut with his whip, when he
sprang upon the nearest cow and play
ed circus until she bucked him off in the
neighboring brush. Sam says that the
last he heard ot the lion he was mowing
a swath through the brush and "wal
lopping" the dogs right and left.
A Washington special says: Advices re
ceived through naval sources, set at rest,
apparently, the newest story regarding the
sudden activity in the Navy Department.
The extraordinary expenditure of Secre
tary Robeson during the past month have
been ot such character, and so continuous,
that even the officers of the Treasury,
through whose hands money has passed,
have been amazed and startled. That some
good reason, or plausible excuse, tor the
consideration ot Congress, exists lor this
immense outlay, has been generally conce
ded. " Various explanations have been
made, but no adequate reason has yet been
suggested. The newest explanation for
activity in the Navy ii a very plausible one
at first sight. It relates to carrying out
the protocol between Admiral Polo and
Secretary Fish, requiring the punishment
of persons connected with the massacre of
the onicrs mid crew of the Virglnius.
The protocol in question was signed .Nov.
29, 1S73, and provided that Spain should
proceed against t'.ie persons who committed
the massacre, before a competent court,
and inflict punishment on those who may
have offended. It has been claimed that
the Spanish Government, instead ol carry
ing out this agreement, has allowed the
officers to escape, and has even promoted
the principal offender. Gen. Burriell, under
whose orders the orew ot the Virginius
were executed. This lias been the subject
of correspondence between the two Government.-?;
but the subject hits' not reached
a point where it was necessary for the
United States to assume a threatening at
titude. It can be stated on the highest
authoiity, that the non-fulfillment, on the
part of Spain, of the protocol . relative to
the authors of the massacre, has been the
determining cjui-e.of the noval activity, as
the conmiuiiieation received from Madrid,
at the State Department, yesterday, states
that the Spanish Cabinet has decided to
carry out the protocol by proceeding to try
Uurriell, and other officers' who murdered
the Viryinius prisoners.
According to cable dispatches receiv
ed from London by prominent Spaniards
here, the recent reconstruction of the
Spauish Cabinet implies the appoint
ment of Gen. Jovellar to relieve Gen.
Valmaseda from the command of the
