The History of the Negottations, their Fail[re, and the Situatiou. th. r. "About this time look out for Indian tron bles" Such has been the mental "conjecr ture" for Spring in the border almanac for t many years-until Baker brought a new order of things on the Marias. Since then ed peace has been maintained. This season the indications are portentous and ominous of evil. There has been a serious mistake made-the mistake of delay in ratifying . agreements with and providing the consideration to the Indians by the Government. Six months ago it seemed that Sitting Bull's Siouxs would yield their arrows for sugar and shirts. It seems likely now that they 5 will be on the war path. General Sheridan telegraphs their appearance far down the is river, menacing the Northern Pacific Road, a Commission is appointed by the Secretary ,n of Interior to reach and if possible conciliate them, and the advertisement for supn plies for the Teton Sioux contains the signitfiant proviso-"should they be need ed"-. Now, to this condition of affairs, there is a history leading tup, and we propose to give '- it before polities monopolise space and interest, premising that with no abatement of r the conviction that the the American Indians is founded and maintainaed upon a theory of absurd folly, a failure to carry out that policy with good faith and promptness, while it is the policy, is worse than to have none at all. For many years the Sioux are known to have been the most powerful, and with the exception of the Apaches, the most warlike of Indians During the past year treaties were made by special agent A. J. Simmons with the Santee and Yanktonian Sioux, two strong bands, who have since remained peaceable near the Milk River Agency. receiving rations and manifesting a disposition to accept the situation. There still remained the Teton Sioux, about 7.000 strong, under Sitting Bull, the war chief succeeding Red Cloud. With these Indians Mr. Simmons opened negotiations last summer, and in September held a council, in which the Tetons agreed to remain at peace until the Agent could communicate with the Great 'lather, and if he would compensate them for loss of country and game on account of the N. P. R. R. going through their hunting grounds, they would leave the war path and remain at peace. The Agent recommended an appropriation for them I conditional upon their good behavior; it was approved by Superintendent Viall, advocated by Delegate Clagett, and by recommendation of the Indian Department a eon. ditional appropriation of $500,000 was inserted in the appropriatioan bill, and is now a law. This, however, was not done tor six months. During the winter they. remained quiet, Sitting Bull sending sev eral times to the Agent to inquire what wouhi he done, and Agent Simmons repeatedly appealing to the Department for prompt action, as with the opening of spring. unless he coiuld give them final answer, they would inevitably make trouble. But the wheels of legislation could not be accelerated. Finally the peril of the situation became manifest, and after twice telegralph-_ ing that immediate action to. satisfy them]n was necessary to prevent them froma goiilg to war, AKgnt Simmons was instructed by telegraph April 28d, to issue provisions to them. Oan'April 24th, he ind his part.y :ift Benton n i Mackinaw and made ail poshl= ble speed for Fort Peck, although., it. waswell known when they left Benton that the Indiant bad broken camp and the river was lihed with war parties. Arriving at Peck, it was demonstrated the authority had comet bo late. theist of April, a war party of Mountain Crows had diahed into the 'l(ph camp in the night and run' off 500 bead ofborses.

Tom O'Connor, an unassuming Irishman, I is said to be the largest cattle owner in a Texas. He does not know exactly how 4 many he has, but the total will not vary t much from 80,00 A man named Taylor, who lived on the East Fork of Scott river, Cal.. and had a wife and family of six children, was r drowned lately while attempting to ford the South Fork on borseback about a mile above (s4laban's. 1 There are now about six hundred Ohi names at work on that part of the Virginia r and Truckee Railroad, lying between p Steamboat and:Caurln. The hack will be o graded throagh to Washoe by June 20th. By the 1st of July all the grading from Steambeat to Carson will be completed. The work is being pushed most vigorously n at every poLt. C The N. P. R. R. From The Weit. (Judcge II. I.. nol mtr',.

GeCnecral S.praague, who represents the interests of the Northern Pacific in Oregon. has just arrived from that State. He brings t'.e information that the N. P. Railroad now being constructed front Olympia to Kalamath on tile Columlbila, will be completed to Kualunat lh by the first of October. The Northern Pacific Company have purchased the steamers and railroads of the Oregon Steam Navigation Company, and will run them in counnection with this road to the mouth of Snake river. At that point they will soon comnmenoe work on the main trunk of the Northern Pacific, which will approach Montana by the way of Pen D'Oreille Lake.. It is intended to complete 280 miles of this line by or before July of next year. Eight hundred and fifty tons of iron have already arrived at Kalamath, which is to be immediately forwarded to the mouth of Snake river, pieparatory to a commeniemnent of operations. You will readily perceive from these facts that the iron horse will enter Missoula from the west sooner than from the east, and that the connection of the eastern and western divisions, will be made at or near Deer Lodge. The road is much nearer completion than our citizens had calculated. Settlers are rapidly populating that portion of the route between Snake river and Pen D'Oreille Lake, and undoubtedly will continue on in advance of the road until it enters the settled portious of Montana. The land is reported to be very fertile, and favorable to the cultivation of all the fruits anid vegetables of tile States. It is alto well timbered and affords abundant water privileges for the construction of machinery. Two years will scarcely elapse until we shall be provided withl means of transportation to either ocean. And in anticipation of this grand event, I hear it whispered that A LINE Or S'rAOGS will be put on the route at ant early day, affording the nearest and quickest route from Montana to the Pacific. This, of itacif would be an important event for our Territory, and open up a thoroughfare which would rapidly become a favorite route of travel. Nothing can be of more interest to Montana now. than increased mail and traveling facilities over the Walla Walla route. ias they will enable the ciltizens of Montana, Washington and Oregon to business relations tach other, in advance of the completion of zailroad and render our vast mineral die. tricts easy of access to the miners of the Pacific, who will flock to them In thousantis as soon t hey lenl they can the long and dreary route they are now obliged to travel, Our territory hlilts greater henefits to de. rive from an early connection tlhe Pacific than the Atlantic. The whole current of trade will eventually take that dil rection. The numerous leading articles hat must be obtained froom the Pacific will in time conllmand the trade he Territory. The difference in cost will e neutralized by the difference in freights -and the dealer who coumes to San Fran. :isco, Portland to buy his fruits, East :ndia goods mining aterials, oon utilize those markets for his groceries and dry goods. 1 "Rules of this Omee."

In 1868, Hlorace Greeley, at a banquet in Montreal, made the following acute and suggestive remarks-as suggestive as Hamlet's soliloquy "'Mr. Webster was not only a gentleman, but he had the elements of moral greatness; and he had faults as well. e.falled only in one respect, and in this respect I differ from him-he wanted to be President, and I dont. [Cheers and laughter.] But for that one misfortune he would have been the greatest man America ever produced. We have seen our greatest man, Mr. Chase, making the same blunder. I have seen men who had the disease early, and died at a very old age. [Laughter.J General Lewis Casa died at albout eightytwo, and up to the day of his death he wanted to be President. No one ever escapes who once catches the disease; he lives and dies in the delusion. Being a reader and an observer at an early age. I saw bow it kpisonetd and paralyzed the very best of our public men, and I have carefully avoided it." .... ,qD,.---- . t- ---The rliilalelpliai.Prews, after a careful reading of several hundred papers, " is Impressed with one fact-that Greeley, instead of dividing the Republican party, has rent the Democracy in twalu." Washington Territory Democrats have nominated U. G. McFadtdent for Delegate to CongreMs.
