Geneva (Switzerland) papers some
times contain authentic and delicious
bits of American information like this,
culled from an Alpine sheet : "It is no
longer denied that President Lincoln
was murdered by General Grant,"
John D. Lee, the great Mormon El
der and principal actor in the Moun
tain Meadow massacre, suffered the
penalty of his crimes on Friday last,
near the scene of the massacre. He
died as he has lived, a fanatic. He has
written a confession, so it is reported
and given it to the District Attorney,
with the request to have it published
' after his death.
Orders have been given for all the
cavalry at Fort Shaw, and other posts,

Fort Ellis, and that Gen Brisbin, with
the cavalry aud all the transportation
at his disposal, are ordered and are
making rapid preparations to report to
Gen. Mile6, at his camp on Tongue riv
er. . The belief is current that this indi
ates a forward movement against the
Indians, and that preparations are made
to strike a telling blow.

The confession of Eph Holland rela
tive to the Democratic frauds in Cin
cinnati accounts directly for over 500
fraudulent votes, enough to oust Ban
ning and nearly every Democrat in of
fice in the county. He testifies that he
was engaged as a matter of business by
Banning, Wallace and ether Democrat,
ic leaders to get votes by whatever
means necessary, and he got them.
Thousands ot dollars were furnished
him, and he disbursed the money among
repeaters from New York, Chicago and
Pittsburg. His confession has made a
startling sensation in Cincinnati. There
is much disappointment expressed be
cause Holland refuses to give the names
of the Democrats in the East who fur
nished the money.
It is thought possible that England
want of decision may bring on a terri
ble war in the East, when, it she had
acted promptly and as reason and hu
manity dictated, the matter would have
been settled without bloodshed. The

Government has done nothing, promise,
nothing, and exhibits only distrust and
condemnation ot Russia. This being

onism that they are regarded on the
continent as two rivals in a great con
troversy, which may develop into a
great conflict. If Russia has
ent reasons of her own lor not wishing

THE YAKIMA RESERVATION.
The Bee says the treaty with the Inr
dians by which fortj townships ot splen
did farming land in the Yakima valley,
"W Ti are set off to the said Indians,
will expire in 1879 in two years
and as there are probably not two hun
dred Indians at present making use of
this splendid reservation, it is hoped it
will eitbsr be thrown open or greatly
reduced in size. The valley would ac
commodate a large number of farmers
with prolific taims. Forty townships
is equal to a tract ten miles wide and
sixty miles long, and contain 921,600
acres of land; which would provide
eighty-acre tracts for 11,520 settlers.
The Indians who now occupy, or rather
prevent others from occupying, these
lands could be easily removed to other
reservations, and the valley which is
now so desolate would soon become a
garden of farms.
RUSSIA BUYS PLOWS.
Ore ot the most noticeable ot recent
occurrences is the purchase of ten thous
and American plows by the Russian
Government to be distributed among
the farmers of Russia. Southern Rus
sia has hitherto supplied what is called
the Black Sea trade, with wheat, being
much nearer the market than we are,
which gave them the advantage. I But
American wheat has displaced the Rus
sian wheat to a great extent in the En-
glish market, so much so that the Rus
sian farmer has to exert himself to hold
even a portion of the trade. This has
stirred the Russian Government up to
use more diligence, and the plows have
been secured hoping they will enable
the Russian farmers to produce wheat
more cheaply than Jieretofore, and thus
compete with American producers.
Says a Columbus, Ohio, biographer
of President Hayes : "He is large, ro
bust and muscular, quick, but not nerv
ous of movement or speech. His voice
is a deep, strong, musical bass. His
eyes are large, blue and kindlv ot ex
prestiion. He wears his sandy beard
full and carefullv trimmed, here and
there in it you notice a gray hair, as
you do also in his full suit of closely cut
brown hair. His form is full, but not
corpulent ; hia teeth are white as ivory,
and h:s features strong and wtll lo
fined. Ilis life has been so pure and re-
proacn:ess mat all goou men and wo
men resnect him. He never hsps tnhnrv.
co or intoxicating liquors. He never
uses proianu language, lie is candid,
open, affable, and has no secret j noth
ing to explain, nothing to refute, i His
character is above suspicion, even after
6ix bitter political campaigns m Ohio."
AGREED AS TO BIS GUILT.
General Nesmith says he does not
doubt Senator Grover's guilt tor one
moment, but he doubts whether the
necessary proof will be brought forward
to convict him.
W. H. Smit, Esq., of Harrisburg,
has asserted time and again of late, in
the most public manner, that he is able
to prove to the satisfaction of any com
mittee that Grover bought his way into
There seems to be no disagreement
among Democrats or Republicans as to
the guilt ot Grover. All believe him
guilty, but not a few are fearful that
the testimony will be insufficient to con
vict. We shall see what we shall see.
