A dashing young follow arrived ai
Galveston, Texas, 11 few months since,
and gave out Hint tho death of 11 relative
had left him 11 small fortune, which ho
wished to invest in n farm, After a
week or two of leisuroly retirement, ho
bought a ranch 011 Chocolate IJnyou for
$5000, There, domesticuting himself at
once an what ho termed a "gentleman
fanner," ho cordinlly rcciproonted tho
attentions of tlm neighboring "squires"
for duo sooiul rolntions, and though un
commuuicativo as to all points in his
past life, found no dilllculty in fngru
tinting himself with the most select so
ciety in that section. A man of his ad
dress, apparent property nnd unmnrried
condition, could not live under such cir
cumstnnccH without marking or being
marked for matrimony, and toward the
end of Inst month certain ussidiioitH ad
dresses ho hud paid to an estimable
young lady culminated in a matrimonial
proposition, which was not rejected.
Tho wedding was fixed for an early dny,
and sumptuary nnd domiciliary prepara
tions for it wero nearly completed, when,
k the horror of Chocolate society, tho
unspeakable anguish of tlio bride-elect,
and the dismay of tlm bridegroom, the
hitter received tho congratulations oft
detective officer from 1'iukerton's agoney
in Chicago, in whoso company, after a
brief interview, ho depurted hurriedly
for tlio Kust us 11 prisoner of tho law.
It seems Hint some time sinco 11
wealthy oil company of I'ennsyl vania had
its burglar proof safe roblied of 817,000,
ami simultaneously ono Norman Hpcneor,
the previously immaculate bookkeeper
of tlm concern, disuppcared from liis
desk, bonrding house, and other fiuniliar
plaeos. The coincidence permitted but
one inference, and no 01m doubted thut
the missing muu hud been tho robber.
A eortnin detective, aware thut before his
crime nnd flight Spencer hud been do
voted in hisuttoiitions to 11 youngorphnn
gill in Titusville, decided to keep n
strict wntch on the young ludy'H move
ments, thinking thut there would 1h
some communication between them.
Two mouths ohipseil beforo tho olllcerV
vigilnnco found any rownrd; but at the
end of that time, just after receiving n
letter addressed in "backhand" from St.
Joseph, Mo., the lady suddenly departed
for tlio West, followed nnd "sundew ed,"
of courso, by tho dotectivo. Through
l'ennsylvnnia and Ohio she journeyed on
to Chicago, where, by tho direction of
his superiors nt home, the ollleor en
listed the sol vices of a noted young de
tective of that city to continue tlio
"shadowing." From Chicago, under
tho surveillance of tlio now wntchor, tho
lady wont to Quinoy. On reaching Hint
city tho lady went to u hotel, nnd the de
tective advised his employers of tho
siute of the case. Instructions wero
sent to changouifllcors, ami a Quincy olll
eor was put to work. Remaining at
Quincy a day, the lady loft ono
fine morning "on the Hannibal and
St. Joseph road. Her every mo
tion had locii watched, mid tho offi
cer wont on the train with her. At
Cameron Junction, sho took tho cars for
Knnsus City, with the nrgus-oyed dotec
tivo on the same ear. Arriving there slio
vent to 11 hotel, followed by tho oflieor.
The morning after her arrivnl in Kansas
City, tlio detective was seated at break
fast, when a woman exactly resembling
the ono ho had been watching, took her
seat in the dining room. She was closely
veiled, but the height, figure and dress
wero the same, and there could bo no
mistake about it. Ho quietly Hnished
breakfast, and then resumed his position
to watch further developmenti. Tho
omnibus rolled up in front of tho door,
and piissengem bound on tho Knnsus-Pn-eillo
ltuilwuy wero culled for. The lady
lie hud seen took her heat in tho 'bus,
lie followed, nnd the two wore soon on
tho train whirling westward. At June
lion Citv the woman got off tho car and
took her scat in tlm depot, tho oflleer fol
lowing. A few hours afterward the train
eustwurn enme along, and tho woman
took her seat in ono of tho cars, l'liz
.led by this singular nianouvre, tho olll
eor followed, and in duo courso of time
both found themselves in tho snmo hotel
in Kansas City they lnul loft in tlio
morning. Next morning the astonishing
fact was revealed that the woman who
went to Junction City wis merely a ser
vnnt in the house, who nenrly resounded
in face nnd tlguro tlio winnnn tho oflleer
was following, and who htul been dress
ed up in a suit of that indiviilual'H cloth
ing as n decoy duck. Convinced Hint ho
Iimi been sold, nnd nimble to procure
uny traco whatever of tho fugitive, the
ollleor gave up tho ohaso and reported to
liis employer. From this time, for some
months, nothing was heard of either
Norman Spencer or tho woman whoso
wit linil foiled tho trained pursuers, but,
inasmuch as it had boon tho ingenuity of
a devoted woman that had covered tho
trail of tho olVoniler from the hunter, tho
game was not yet to bo betrayed by a
woman scorned. It appeared Hint nftor
luiving sent off tho "decoy," tho lady
hurried to St. Joseph, whore, undor an
assumed naino, Spencer mot lior. ltopro
Honting that ho hnd resolved to buy a
ranch in Galveston county, Texas, "far
from tho maddening erowd'H strife," as
sume tlio name of Normnn, nnd thou
marry the woman who had boon bo truo
to him, ho induced -lior to remain in St.
Josoph until lm should wuul for her.
She, all trusting, consented, and ho re
turned to his Chocolate llayou ranch
Tlio man was false to hor as to his em
ployers, nnd his last letter, of compara
tively recent dato, ci.unsolod her to re
turn to Titusvillo, as ho was about to
marry a lady of Galveston county. Do
sorve'dly for him and happily for the
law, slio who had onco thrown HioIiouikIh
of the law off his trail, could put thorn
on again, and sho did. Tho result has
been told already. Tho gontlonmn far

Thursday evening tho people of Hills
borough wero electrified by tlm intelli
gence Hint tlm Indians' had raided tho
plncer camp, about fivo miles below that
town. The news came to tho effect Hint
thoy had ridden into camp in great num
bers, mounted 011 government liorsos nnd
armed with revolvers nnd government
rifles. Thoy sacked the camp, driving on
lHitweon thirty and forty head of stock.
Tho miners wero mostly all nt work on
their claims, and having no thought of
an attack, had left their arms 111 their
cabins. Homo few, however, rushed for
ami obtained their guns and opened Are
on the band of red dovils us thoy were
riding hither and thither through the
camp. This lire seemed to exasperate
tho Indians, who immediately shot and
mangled several women nnd children in
isolated cabins, ns ulso wounding several
men. Thoy rodo off in a body, driving
the captured stock before them, in the
direction of the Parches river. Tlio band
unlabeled seventy-live to ono hundred
Indians. A nnmber of minors rodo pell
moll to Hillsborough, carrying the start
ling news thut tho copper-colored dovils
wero heading toward that town. J: or a
while this caused great consternation and
excitement. Women nnd children wero
guthercd together iii a common plnco of '
safety, nnd tho town, though wofully do- '
flcient in arms, presented a stirring and
martial appearance. Hoon came another
courier from the placers, saying that tho
band had divided into two parties and
that both divisions wero making south;
ono toward the Trtijillo pluco, and the
other toward McEvur's cienegu. A band
of twenty Americans, imperfectly nriccd
and poorly mounted, started out at onco
to intercept them. Tho band was fol
lowed by other smaller parties shirting
out whenever thoy could find horses und
guns to go with. The ilrst party -which
BUrted after tho Indians camo upon them
in a eornfiold tho other side of McEvnr's
house, nnd immediately gavo them battle,
but tho force of tho red skins so over
powered them in numbers, nnd was so

lurgo numlier of Indian horses wero left
riderless lsjforo thoy fell buck. Tho
parties going to their assistance united
on the road, but wero intercepted by n
detachment of Indians beforo thoy could
reach tho cienegu, where they could hear
the bottle raging. The relieving party at
once engaged tho detachment of reds pud
fought ns only men can light whose lives
nrout issue, but all to no purjiose tho
otlds wero too greatlheyboing outnum
bered ton to one. They flaw that they
wero surrounded; a shower of Indian
bullets was poured in upon thoir little
company from all sides, und finally they,
too, sought each for himself shelter us
best lie could Hud. Thoy retreated,
leaving u numl)er of their men dead on
tlio field, a larger number wounded, and
animals crippled and dying on every
side. Small parties mado their way
nfoot, skulking behind bushes und rocks,
where they joined those who had first
gone out niid who had reassembled after
the route nt McEvnr's ranch; others pick
ed up stray horses bereft of their riders
nnd made tho best of their way back to
Hillsborough, to carry tho direful news
nnd obtain reinforcements; nnd others
dotected in their lligHt by tho merciless
savages, wero ridden down, trampled
upon, mutilated in every conceivable
und inhuman manner, and loft dead or
dying food forthevuituresand coyotes.
In this contliet tho Indians nro known to
have lost their chief, who fell from his
suddlo, pierced through tho heart by a
bullet from tin) unerring ritlo of poor
Tom Hughes, who paid tho forfeit of his
own lifo just ono moment after. Tho
savages having now whetted their horrid
thirst for blood, and mnddoned beyond
measure at U10 death of their chief nnd
so many of their braves, and finding no
fresh parties to attack, mailo their wny
to 11 Moxienn ranch n short distanco off,
whom resided ton souls threo men, a
youth, throe women and threo children
of tender years, ono a meio suckling

cruelly massacred, tho moil linoked to
pieces with lances and riddled with num
berless bullets, the babies liown with
axes and their little innocent heads eleft
from crown to chin, and tho women, re
served for a still moro horriblo fate,
worn left dead nnd mutilated after atroci
ties had been committed, tho very
thought of which compels humanity to
shudder. Tho Indians then gathered
up their surplus stock, took all tho mules
and horses from tho ranehos in the
vicinity, and not daring to attaek Mo
Evar's much, which was now so well
protected by the Hillsborough boys,
made for tho mountains, ono party of
thoni taking a southerly courso, and tho
other directing their march toward tlio
Mimbros river. They will undoubtedly
strike for Mexico nnd dispose of the
stock stolen from Undo Sam, of which
thoy can have no less than two hundred

Trooper Rickors, belonging -tb ono of
tho corps ongaged in hostilities against
Sccocoeni, and who has been missing for
Bomo time, has coino in with a remarka
ble story of his adventures during his
peregrinations. Ho was captured by tho
enemy nnd taken to Sccococni's, where
ho was right royally treated, and sent
away with a present of 5 from tho chief
and a letter to prove that ho had been in
the kraul. Ho says:
"My horso being knocked np, I was
ordered to rcmnin with tho Caffrcs at
Murder Kop, with Mr. Tainton, lint as I
did not rigi'tly comprehend my instruc
tions I continued on tho march und re
joined my troop, which wns 1$ troop,
forreira's horse, and I remained with
them until tho first lot of cattle were
taken. After this I got separated from
tho main body nnd foil in with five oth
ers who had nlso lost themselves. They
wero Peter Grant, Abrahams, Blackburn,
Goorge and St. Croix. We rode through
out too morning without finding the
spoor of the main body. My horse by
this time was so exhausted that I shouted
to the men and wanted them to stop, but
they went on, and were frequently two
hundred yards ahead of me. At length I
was left alone altogether, as I conld not
keep up to them. I remembered Hint
Grant bad toid mo that the Panama flats
were on tho other side of a high moun
tain; but beforo I got halfway up my
bono gave in, and I let him loose, after
which I never saw him again until I got
to Secocooni's. I then walked over tho
mountains and on tho fiats in search of
water, but found none until noon tho
following day. The river whero I got it
was smaller thsn tho Olifants river, and
I followed it bc-'anso I met large troops
of cattle. Nobody saw me. I went tow
ard a high mountain, but was too tired to
get to the top that night, and walked up
tho next morning. When here, I made
up my mind to follow the first path Isaw.
"While going along I saw large troops
of cattle, and at noon I observed a Caffro
town in front of me. Two Caffro women
saw me and gave the alarm. I then hid
my gun In the bush. I was beaten and
scratched by the women, and some men
came out and took mo into a kraal. I
told them that I had left Middleburg
dnmk, and had lost the road, but thej
laughed at me. They, however, gavo me
something to eat anil drink. After this
I wus marched off to Soeocoeni's town,
about six miles awny. Here the men
came out in thousands, and I was beaten
with sticks. A brother of Secocoeni's
came out afterward and took me ujj to
Secocoeni's kraal. Secocoeni sent to say
that I must not be afraid and ordered
that I should be taken to a lint and tied
up. In the evening I had an interviow
with Secocoeni, and told him the same
story I had told the others about the
rea-wn of my being in the neighliorhood.
Tho Chief said he was not such a fool as
to believo that. He then gave me some
beer to drink and dismissed me, raying
that I must not be afraid as he would see
that I should be sent to tho fort safely.
The next day I did not see the Chief, but
on the day after he sent for me and told
me to speak the truth to him. I was
shown four Martini-Henry rifles (ono
of which I recognized as mine, which I
had hid awav.) and fifteen cartridges.
Secocoeni then produced tho arm and
hand of a -white man, and said tho five
men had been seen and two wero dead.
He again asked mo to speak the truth,
and I confessed that I belonged to Fer
reira's Horse. He then said that he had
given his word, and never broko it, and
I should go, ami added Hint he knew ns
well ns n white man how to treat a pris
oner. "I was next asked if I recognized the
arm, and tho spectacles of Peter Grant
wero held up beforo mo. The day after
I saw Secocoeni again, when he said I
should get my horso back, and in tho
evening I told him that I could ride
without a saddle. In tho morning he
oidered two Caffres to accompany mo
with a white flag, and I was brought
through by Manialuho to this sido on the
road to the fort. Secocoeni's brother was
wiUi mo up to this timo, nnd boforo leav
ing ho gavo mo ten half-sovereigns in
gold. In tho town I noticed there wero
many thousands of Caffres. Secocoeni
wanted to know why the war was still
carried on against him, and why peaeo
was not mado. Tho chief whoso cattle
was captured by us was thero and ho tied
my legs. Ho added that he and his peo
ple would fight tho white man to tho last,
and that we had better not come to his
sido of tho mountains, as wo would never
get out again. A paper was givon mo by
Secocoeni's brother for Capt. Perreira.

King was unhurt, but his vehicle was so
injured that ho was obliged to finish his
journey on foot. Tho actor was so con
fused when ho recognized his sovereign
that ho was nnablo to givo uttorauco to

when the King turned and said to him:
"My dear Mr. A, I would really sug

Tho immenso shipments of grain from
this country to Emopo during tho last
four years havo opened onr eyes and tho
eyes of foreigners to the unsuspected
capacities of tho West. But tho wholo
truth is not known even yet. Wo have
measured tho proportions of Texan nnd
its marvelous capacity for cattle grow
ing; wo havo some exhibitions of tho
grain-growing power of Kansas, Ne
braska and Colorado; we havo seen Min
nesota increasing its wheat yield with
each succeeding year, and during tho
lost twelvo months we havo becomo
slightly acquainted with tho immense
fertile region of Dakota, whero tho machinery-reaped
wheat fields aro as largo
as principalities; but there is another re
gion of almost boundless resources lying
still further west which has almost
escajjed observation. Oregon is a State
scarcely less interesting than California,
though it docs not attract as largo a share
of public attention. Tlio population of
its chief city, Portland, has grown in tho
last nine years from 0000 to 20,000.
Last year a thousand new houses
wero erected, nnd it is stated
Hint thero "isnnoro nctunl wenlth per
capita in Portland than in any other city
in the country, except Providence,
Khodo Island." The wheat fields of
Eastern Oregon and Washington and
Northern Idaho aro described as little
less marvellous than thoso along tho lino
of the Northern Pacific in Dakota. This
region wns onco given up to bunch-grass
but it has lcon found by experiment
that bunch-grassland is good wheat land,
and the district lying along tho Colum
bia river in Oregon and Washington
Territory a hundred miles in width and
three hundred miles in length, being
larger in extent 'than the State of
Pennsylvania, is being gradually
broken up in to wheat cultivation.
Tho soil is declared to be fertile
and productive beyond tho concep
tion of those who havo not looked upon
it and seen the illustrations of its yield
ing capacity turning out thirty, forty,
fifty and even ceventy-fivo bushels per
care, and giving an average of Hiirty-tiyo
bushels of wheat per acre, with sHU
larger yields of oats and barley, year
after year, with unfailing regularity
for, unlike the wheat crop of California,
that of Oregon never fails. A State with
such agricultural resources as theso,
with a genial climate and with a seaport
who' harbor affords shelter to vessels
drawing nineteen feet of water, cannot
but rise to wealth and honor, and it will
not be muny years before Oregon will
contest with California tho Pacific Coast
