Judge Uox, ot the circuit court at Peru, has decided the long standing suit of Chief Gabriel Godfrey, chief the Miami tribe of Indians, against the commissioners of Miami county, in favor ot the plaintiff. The court held that neither state, county, township nor municipality has the right to tax any Indian lands, and the attempt Is a cloud on the title. He also finds they are entitled to a perpetual injunction agaiust such col- leftion. As tbe Indians of this tribe have a reserve near Peru, and have always been taxed, the decision means the loss o! thousands ot dollars in taxes, and for which Chief Godfrey will bring suit for recovery. This decision has been looked for with Interest for some time, as on its decision depended numerous suits of different Indian tribes throughout the country. The Late Ret. Wm. M. Pratt, D. D.

In 1843, he went to Kentucky and settled in Lexington, where hie married the daughter of Rev. Ryland T Dlllard, who survives him. There he preached for over twenty years, but during the war was compelled to leave on account of his Union sentiments.
