New York, Jan. 23. Capt. Adams
at Cork reports sighting, about 50
miles west of Fastnett, a ship on fire
and a steamer well manned in the
neighborhood. On going to the assist
ance of the vessel, he was warned by
the steamer to keep on his course, or
he would burn too, and not to report
what he had seen, else he had better
look out for himself, on his next voy

Cheyenne Indian campaign has closed.
On Monday Col. Evans found the ren
egades. Capt. Wessels started on
their trail with four companies of cav
alry. The work of capturing them
either dead or alive began in dead
earnest. Nine were captured, twenty
three killed, and seventeen unaccount
ed for. It is supposed that some died
of their wounds, and others escaped.
Washington, Jan. 28. Represen
tative Finlay has submitted to the
committee on public expenditures his
report with reference to the investiga

After charging general extravagance,
the report recommends the abolish

Washington, Jan. 23. The house
went into committee of the whole on
the bill to apply the proceeds of the
sale of public lands to the education
at the people. Townsend, New York,
.said that it passed all human patience
to stand by and see a calm, adroit,
an oily proposition to rob loyal states
out of their interest in public lands.
They were to be thimble-rigged put of
their interest. lie was not ready for
that. The time fixed for general de
bate having expired, the house pro
ceeded to consider the bill by sections
of amendment." Reagan moved to
amend the proviso in the first section,
which provides that it shall not limit
or abridge the power of congress
over the public domain or interfere
with granting lands, by adding the
words "or grants in aid of public
improvements." Eden offered as
a substitute for Reagan's amend
ment, an -amendment providing
that all public lands which have
been giantecLby congress to aid in the
construction of railroad and telegraph
lines which have not been earned, and

acting on the amendment.

splendor, irradiate fantastic gleams of

points of comfort, entwine your white
arms in cold embrace around man

rapturous love. Theirshalt be heard
the sharp twang of Cupid's bow, as

But be it love, be it hard-fisted toil,
