The boat which left Bismarck at 6 o'clock only proceeded two miles down the river where it laid up for the night, the Indians being allowed to go ashore. The squads quickly shouldered the blankets and cooking utensils, and had bright firea burning, in front of whioh the sturdy bucks sat and smoked the pipe. As darkness came and the firea began to fade away the scene from the cabin of the lxat was a wierd and dreary one. In the stillness of the night, beneath a cloudless sky studded with millions of bright, twinkling stars, the tall weeds and luxuriant undergrowth waved gently to end fro over the sleeping forms of the once brave and mighty warriors, and this scene scarcely a half a dozen miles from the Custer flats, and in a country well known by the Indians, and whioh recalled a fierce battle or a bunt At a late hour Capt. Clifford was sought and his STOUT OP THE SUBHENDEB of Sitting Bull learned, which was as follows: Having received information that Sitting Bull was ready to come in I left the fort with a sergeant and five half-breed scouts, at an early hour in the morning and went to meet him. After inarching about sixty miles we found Sitting Bull in camp about ten miles north of Sand Buttes. The traditional " i w " was all the greeting I received. We countermarched that day and went into camp. The next morniLgrifrnly 18, after a long, ram- tion. These were oontinued with greater vehemenoe as the boat neared the landing. Indians, soldiers and citizens began to pour down the sides of the bluffs. The Indians on the shore simply said "How," and manifested but little interest, as a line of soldiers' bayonets kept them at a considerable distance. Sitting Bull stood unmoved throughout the entire time. He was the least adorned of his companions, and the last who would, have been seleoted as the notorious one By those unacquainted with him. Bunning Antelope being the only agency Indian allowed to oome aboard, he passed hurriedly to the upper deck and in climbing the stairs near the Bide of the boat found Sitting Bull STANDING IMMOVABLE in the row of chiefs and directly in front of the hatchway. He stepped np to Sitting Bull back, threw bis right arm around his neck, placed bis cheek against his and in the Sioux language said: "My son." Sitting Bull made no move to turn or recognize him nntil Antelope passed to the left of the line and stepping in front of the chiefs, shook hands with them and said: "How" to each. As he reached Sitting Bull, the next to the last in the line, he found THE OBEAT CHIEF CBTINO and wiping away the tears. Sitting Bull's favorite daughter was riot at the landing. A SEA VOYAGE.

Not being able to greet her seemed to deeply affect Sitting Bull. He was also not allowed to speak with Gaul or any of the other chiefs, with the exception of Sunning Antelope. After the reception in the cabin, whioh lasted for half an hour, all the Indians, including all the chiefs and Sitting Bull, were marched ashore in single file and counted. It has only been a few years since Sitting Bull roamed the prairies "monarch of all be surveyed," with ten thousand Indians and three thousand warriors under him. He then defied a nation, but now he sits beside the river with civilization on every hand, humiliated in the eyes of his people and himself. BITTING BULL S 1TFTTJBE.

Progress cf the Work in the Minnesota Valley-The Yield and Grade Up to Anticipation at All Points and Above at Some Pine Weather. Nearly Fatal Aocldent at Lanesboro. Special Telegram to The Tribune. Lani-sbouo, Aug. 2. An aooident occurred at 8:30 this forenoon that oame noar causing the instant death of Dan. Leary, superintendent of the bridge department of the Southern Minnesota. While in the act . of taking down tho wind mill that had served to support water to the locomotive-tank, a large beam about sixteen feet lonn; fell a distance of thirty feet, niissiDg Leary "s head by only ten inches, striking a board -which struck him on the baok and totween the shoulders with terrific force. The extent of his injuries are not at this time definitely known, but probably be wiH recover. The only wonder is be was not kilted out-jrigbt 'What is the reason they put my daughter in irons? What will they do with me? I tried to CALM HIS PEAKS, and told him that bis daughter had not been put in irons. "What would I gain by lying to you? Tho United States government has no cause to lie to you. It was in a spirit of mercy that yon were sent for. They wish to settle the great question for ever. I put a knife in joar hands, and if I am lying to you you may kul me. This, however, did not seem to satisfy the great chief, and having repeated his question and declined to accept my reiteration of tho tiuth, be said: "I DON'T EELI3VB IOJ." I told him I was not in the habit of lying to either white or red men, after wbbh the conversation ended. We then took up the march and reached Euford at 2:15 o'clock in the afternoon of July 1!). A detachment was sent out to bunt an aged squaw who had wandered away to dig -pomn'x bhmceflt White Apph, and got lost during the first day. The 188 Indians in the band made thenistlveH as comfortable 83 possible, but Sitting Bull requested that no one speak to him, and his request was firantad. On the irning of the 20th he went up to see Ma jor Brotherton and told him he wanted six chiefs and his daughter at Fort iates to come up to see him. Major Brotherton said: "You must obey the commands of the GI1EAT FATHEB and go where he sends you." Sitting Bull replied: "I am entitled to some consideration from the government and the Great Father, as I have never received a handful of corn from the United States authorities. I come" he did not say surreudc r "and ield to the -wishes of the government, not on my own aooount, but because my women and children were starving." Major Brotherton then informed him that his daughter and the chief 3 could not come to see him, and Sitting Bull said "All right; it is all of one piece. They have ALWAYS LIK1) TO MB." The captain halted here aud said he would fetch Sitting Bull in and let him tell his own story. So he came down from the up per deck and took a seat by the table. A newspaper was spread before him, and he was told by the interpreter that the reporter wished to talk to thousands at one time. Captain Clifford told bira, "This man will scatter it broadcast. He can talk to more people in the morning in his newspaper than you can see in several mouths. Your story will go to the people far away so far that it would take you four moons to reach them." After this statement the great ohief hung bis bead for a few moments, the while he fanned himself with a palm leaf fan; then be lookod up, gave one of his 1NDKHCHIDAHLK OliUNTB and looking at the people congregated about him said: "I cannot ta'k to night to the great newspaper. There are none of my people here to listen to me, to listen to what I say. If I tell the truth and if the great newspaper tells the truth " At this juncture Capt. Clifford sent for other chiefs, and Shoot-the-Bear, Bear-that- Looked-Baok, and Stand-and-Kill-Him entered tho cabin, to k scats in the oirole and took a whiff at the pipe of peace passed by the reporter. They assumed a stalwart attitude, and Sitting Bull, who bad been talking to the interpreters, was asked to talk; he arose and gesticulated and talked for about five minutes, but what he said proved only to lie that HE REFUSED TO TALK for reasons that were not made public The interpreters said that the talk would have reflected on Capt. Clifford, while the latter acouscs the interpreters of withhold iug the interview to got money for it. The Sherman arrived at Fort Yates at 12 o'clock noon. All the chiefs had assembled at the bow of the boat, and were chanting tbuir traditional songs. . A yellow flag was raised by one chief, having in the center a rude design of a deer, and in each corner a sign representing the doublo dagger. This flag was raised as during a battle. As it was flung to the breeze the seven ohiefs began their peculiar ohunting and monoto-nous songs, which was every moment min gled with WARLIKE TELLS and peculiar and indescribable deuioustra IS MID-H ARV.EBT.

All the features of his oase worth special notice have been included 4n th? ftHiil tin letins. His pulse at this at the white house is not caused by the Po-tomnc flats. He says: "My impression is that the sickness at the executive mansion is caused by BAD DRArNAOK.

The draft is sent bv adherents of tbe same religious faith in England, as a token of thank fulness for tbe preservation of his life. THE BEST DAY YET. Washington, Aug. 2. Dr. Miss reports this evening that the president has had tho best day be bas known sinoe bis injury. His appetite is good and be ets nourishment well. Ilia voice is notably stronger than heretofoie, and he has been all day tntirely free from fever. Tbe r .u,?e of pulse was be low 100, and temperature aud respiration continued riormul. In all respects he has made favtrable progress toward recovery. THE BILL OF FARE. The president continues to make favora ble progress toward recovery. One good feature in his case is an increased appetite. He now partakes more freely of solid food, r nd bis bill of fare has been extended to embrace several things hitherto forbidden, including coffee, of which bo drank a half cup yesterday. The surgeons continue to give him "koumyss" occasionally in plaof- of an equal quantity of milk, and though this mild tartar stimulant haj but little to recommend it to the average taste he expresses a decided fondness for it and drinks it eagerly. Tbe morning exarainition lo dtty showed a very healthy discharge from tbe wound. The nature of tbe discharge showed that suppuration is going on along tho remote track of the wound as well as in the portion where tbe ball entered. This morning h) bad for breakfast souie beefsteak and" toast saturated in milk. His pulse thin moining was BETTER THAN AT ANY TIME of bis illness. The president good-naturedly said to (Jen. Swaim this morning, "I will be with you a wuile longer, Bwaim." His diet will be changed and the amount of nourishment increased as tbe tone of bis stomach improves. His pulse is stronger in tone and cbarao er than at any time, and in fact all of his symptoms are of a better character than ever. Quiet reigned supreme at tbe white house, and to night there was little to break tbe dull monotony. Callers were even f e rtr than usual. Even cabinet officers have abardoned their daily visits. Attorney-General MacVeagh was the only cabinet caller, aud even he did Lot enter the build ing. He stopped at tbe main door, obtained a cony of the bulletin, and foe in iz enoour- ageu at us contents arove on wunoui alighting. THE COOLER. Mr. Jennings's cooling apparatus, wLich bas been out of use daring tbe past two days on account of tbe coolness of the weather, was again put in operation to day. The question of removing tbe president is talked of at the white house. It is thought that in three weeks, if he progresses as be now does, it will be entirely safe to give him a trip. Tbe sea voyage is what is best thought of by his uhvsicians. If he con tinues to gain strength, without any serious break, it is almost safe to say that in three weeks he will start on A SHORT SEA VOYAOE in the Tallapor sa, which will be ready to receive bun. In view of the steady improvement of hia condition members of tbe cabinet are beginning to think again of their leave of abseuoe for trips that they naa pianuea tna wnicii were upset by Gni teau and bis revolver. Dr. Aguew stated to a friend th's forenoon that be ras certainly doing very well indeed. There was no feature in the case that they could wish to be improved.
