Uiot and dignity of the towo was yestrdny

have definite information in regard to the
fight which" took-' place near Cottonwood, -oir
the 17th of October, between three men in
the employment of the military department,
and a band of Snake IhdlcraB ;. and as two
versions of tbe affair hare been published in
this paper, we deem it of sufficient importance
to bear telling over again;' we give the follow
ing authentic version of it: A team which
bad been up to Gamp Logan wits returning to
Camp Watson, and when about twetve miles
beyond the latter place, some fifteen Indians
made their appearance uhead in tbe road.
There were three men with tbe team, one of
whom, a government herder, was ahead, one"
was riding in tbe toogflm and one was driving
the team. Tbe herder, .being abend,' first saw
the Indians, and rode back, with -the savages
at bis lleels, to give the alarm. The teamster
had barely time to quicken, bit pace when tbe
savages were upon him, firing at bitn and the
mules. The tadxlle-mulc, being wounded,
threw the driver, and the team in running
pulled'tbe wagon over the man's ankle. Be
fore. b& could rise, an Indian shot him through
the shoulder. The team ran on, with several
of tbe mules nftddened by wound;, and nil
the Indians but three following it; Tbe3e
last engaged theitenuister as be arose wound
ed and crippled ; but they bad caught a Tar
tar: with bis revolver be killed two outright,
nd tbe third escaped, wounded, by a timely
flight. The mau in tbe wagon appears to
are got out during tbe flight of the mules,
and with the herder and wounded man, got
on to a rocky point, when they saw the lu-
ians take tbe mules away frorfl the wttgou
three of them bad fallen frottu wounds and
fver packing up tbeir dead comrades, make
hastily away. It Beems there was a camp of MO"f"CE TO FARMERS"

again .started out, with i twenty men, aud on
Uio night -of. that day made camp twelve
wiles. sonth of Camp Iogan. Ou-itlio morn
iug of tbe 19th he sent out a scoutiug party,
and they found some forty Indians encamped

baggage, he proceeded to the Indian camp,

Ayer, whose family medicines are commonly
supposed to have added several years to the
average longevity of the human family, has
turned Bis thoughts to tbe invention of a new
process for tbe desulpburation of gold and
silver-bearing ores. The labartttory tests, he
says, were entirety satisfactory -but the fur
nncei to try the theory ou a larger scale did
not anstter expectation, Tbe reason assigned
for tbe. failure, is that no arrangement was
made for the automatic irarfiiling of the heated
ores, and that in tropical climates the heat
would be' tdo great to move them by hand.
This appears to be a very lame, not to sny
impotent ereiise for tile failure, for up in
Owybce and BStse the automatic handling is
not required. Professor Ayers says that wheu
the working process for his new discovery is
perfected it will be offered to the nlinlng pub
lic for adoption. lit the meantime, the ex
periments to secure a practical application of
the idea is in the bauds, or under tbe control

Gen. .Cutler does not intend to wait for the
completion nf tbe automatic appliance, ns lbe
invention has been published on this-(roast
with a flourish of tf umpets. This rs not tbe
first time that great merit has been attributed
to some invention which utterly failed in
practice to verify representations of the' in
ventors o.' meet tbe expectations of' tbtnt-t por
tion of tbo public interested in such matters.
It is about time that the representations of
charlatans at the East, were treated with a
healthy degree of of" suspicion; It tfill be

Indian Outuoij on Snakk liivitn Muiideh,
A mau named Cox, while riding with his wife
n a wagon, from,. Snake rircr towards Ruby
City, was murdered" at a point on the road
poken of as ."-tbo-Onfibn," by some Indians,
supposed to be Snakes. The murder took
place on .the 23lb of last month. Tim. w ife
stated that they were attacked by three In
dians, and a Mexican- !io. was.-oeM the place
at the time, says that be saw two Indians.
There were several teams in sight, nnd close
by, and from tbis fact alone, was the woman's
ife saved." A band of about forty Snakes had
been seen a short time before in the neighbor-
hood) and it is probable Ibat a small detach
ment from them perpetrated the murder. It
is while sluib scenes as ibcte are beings en
acted, within thirty- miles nf the 'Owyhee

and on the greatest thoroughfare iu the moun
