St. Paul, April G. Advices
have been received at lieadquar
tors of the department of Dakota
that twenty-six lodges of Indians
from Sitting Bull's camp are with
in fifty miles of Poplar river en
route to Buford to surrender.
iNine or ten bucks have already
arrived, bringing this announce
ment. Sitting Bull, they say, will
follow wIkmi the snow goes.

New Vokk, April Gth. The
Times, commenting on the decision
in the Miles case, says: The Mor

congress amends the law of evi

several wives are competent wit
nesses on indictments for bigamy,
convictions for this offense will be
difficult if not impossible.
PacMc Railroad Sinking Fund.
New York, April G. To-day
the United States assistant treas
urer here received orders to sell
bonds to the government for the
Pacific railroad sinking fund. This
is the first time public offers of
bonds have been solicited for this
fund, and it is worthy of mention,
that Windom's first departure is a
creditable one. The idea being to
accept those which will pa' this
sinking fund the best returns.
The offers amounted to $1,000,000.

Since the death of Carlylc some
of his worshippers are making it
unpleasant for Minister Lowell by
quoting his remarks of some years
since about the Scotch writer.
Referring to Carlyle's history Mr.
Lowell said: iCHe goes about with
his Diogenes dark lantern, profess
ing to seek a man, but invariably
resolved to find a monke'."
A few weeks ago, the great val
ley of the Sacramento, from the
coast hills on the west to the
Sierras on the east, was covered
with water, and presented the ap
pearance of a vast inland sea. No
system of embankments or levees
would have .been of any use to the
millions of acres of land that were
submerged; the mighty volume of
water was rolling down from the
mountain sides, and if the level
lands had been measurably guard
ed, the height of the flood wotrhl
have been the greater. Tlierc can
be no protection against overflow,
unless the straits at Benicia are
enlarged, or a new outlet found to
the ocean. It will be necessary
for those who are figuring upon
the reclamation of the swamps to
follow the same policy that for
thousands of 3'ears has been fol
lowed by the dwellers in the valley
of the Nile. The floods must be
expected, and efforts made only
to create a few dry and elevated
places for the towns and the dwell
ings. Yhen the wateis subside,
the most must be made of the
lands that have been made acces
sable, and if they will not produce
wheat and vegetables, those who
own them must introduce the
cultivation of crops that are bene
fitted instead of destroyed by the

His Speech Before the Sioux Com
Iteprt4 It the Boownstlt; Bi'I Xy.
The following speech of Sitting
Bull has been specially translated
and reported by our Indian editor,
who is also wholesale and retail
dealer in deceased languages, and
sen oral ajrent for home-made Sioux
rhetoric and smoke-tanned Indian
eloquence. New laid Indian la
ments with bead trimmings. Com
piler of novel and desirable styles
of war dances. Indian eloquence
furnished to debating ciubs and
publishers of school readers:
Warriors, and war-scarred vet
erans of the frontier. Once more
our war path is overgrown with
bunch grass, and the tomahawk
slumbers in tle wigwam of the
red man. Grim-visaged war has
given place to the piping times of
peace. The cold and cruel winter
is upon us. It has been upon us
for some time. The wail of de
parted spirits is on the night wind,
and the wail of the man with the
chilblain answers back from the
warrior's wigwam. Children of the
forest, we are few. "Where once
the shrill war whoop of the chief
tain collected our tribe like the
leaves of the forest, I might now
yell till the cows come home with
out brinfnnr out a quorum. We
arc fading away before the march
of the paleface, and sinking into
oblivion like the snowflake on the
bosom of the Stinking Water.
Warriors, I am the last of a might
race. We were a race of chief
tains. Alas! we will soon be gone.
The Bull family will soon pass
from the face of the earth. Ole is
gone, and .John is tailing, and 1
don't feel very well myself. We
arc the victims of the paleface, and
our lands are taken away. But
a few more suns and the civiliza
tion, and valley tan, and hand
made sour mash, and horse
liniinent of the paleface will have
done their deadly work. Our
squaws and pappooses are scattered
to the four winds of heaven and
we arc left desolate. Where

sunk beneath the fire-waters of the
goggle-eyed Caucasian.. They
have succumbed to tlie delirium
triangle, ami when I call them
they come nut. They do not hear
my voice. Their moans are
heard upon the still night air, and
the- cry for revenge. Look at the
sand remnant of the family of Sit
ting Bull, your chief. One sore
eyed squaw is loft alone. Her
face is furrowed o'er with the
famine of man' winters, and her
nose is only the ruin of its former
greatness. Her moccasins are
worn out, and the soldier pants
she wears arc too lono- for her.
erne, also is drunk, blie is not as
drunk as she can get, but she is
hopeful and persevering. She has
also learned to lie like the white
man. She is now an easy, extem
When we gather about the
camp fire and enact our untutored
lies in the gloaming, Lucretia-Bor-gia-Skcwhcgan-Sitting-Bull,
the inspiration of six fingers of
agency coffin varnish, proceeds to
tell the prize prevarication, and
then the house adjourns, and noth
ing can be heard but the muffled
tread of the agency corn beef, o
ing out to get some fresh air.
Lucretia is also becoming solvenly.
It is evening, and yet she has not
donned her evening dress. Her
back hair is unkept, and her front
hair is unbung. Pretty -soon 1
will take a tomaltawk and bang it
for Iter. She seems despondent
and ltopeless. As sIhj leans against
the trunk of a mighty onk and
scratches Jer back, you can see
that lcr thoughts are far away.
Her other suspender is gone, but
she don't care a cold smooth clam.
She is thinking of Iter childhood
days by the banks of Minnehaha.
Warriors, we stand in the mocca
sins of a mighty nation. We rep
resent the starving remnant of the
once powerful Sioux. Our pi
rogue stands idly on the shore.
I don't know what k pirogue is,
but it stands idly on the shore.
When the spring flowers bloom
again, and the grass is green upon
the plains, we will once more go
upon the warpath. We will
avenge the wrongs of our nation.
I have not fully glutted my ven
geance. 1 have seven or eight
more gluts on hand, and we will
shout our war-cry once more, and
mutilate some more Anjjlo-Saxons.
We will silence the avenging
cries of our people. We will spat
ter the green grass and grey grease
wood with the gore of the paleface,
and feed the white-livered emi
grant to the coyote. We will
spread death and desolation every
where, and fill the air with jnim
overshoes and remains. Let us
yield up our lives dearly while we
mash the paleface beyond recog
nition, and shoot his hired man so
full of holes that he will look like
a suspension bridge. Warriors,
there is our hunting ground. The
buffalo, the antelope, the sage hen
and the jaokass rabbit are ours.
Ours to enjoy, ours to perpetuate,
ours to transmit. The Great Spirit
created these animals for the red
man, and not for the billious tourist,
between whose legs the chestnut
sunlight penetrates clear up to his
Then we will ride down on the
regular army, when he is thinking
of something else, and we will
scare him into convulsions, and
our medicine men will attend to the
convulsions while we sample the
supplies. Then we will take some
cold sliced Indian a;ent, and
some bay rum, and go on a picnic.
Warriors, farewell. Be virtuous
and you will be happy: but you
will be lonesome, sometimes.
Think of what I have said to you
about the council fire, and govern
yourselves accordingly. We will
not murmur at the celluloid crack
er and cast iron codfish ball, but
in tin spring we will have veal
cutlets for breakfast, and ponce
commissioner on toast for dinner.
The squaw of Sitting Bull shall
have a new plug hat, and if the
wcatlier is severe, shall have two
of them. Warriors, farewell. 1
