A despatch from Kittanning, of 10
in?:., says: The Sheriff of Armstrong co .
George A- Williams, who has been in
office since January, It?TT. and who was
convicted at the lecember term. I>7\
of using money to obtain votes, was to
day sentenced by Judge Boggs to two
veara aud oue month to the l'enitentia
rv and fo pay a fine of fcW. Ihe pres
ent Coroner, J. E. Willis, was appointed
by the Court to All the office, and the
Sheriff was placed in his custody. An
application for an allocater. to bring the
case befere the Supreme Court of the
State at Philadelphia, will be made by
Williams' counsel to-morrow.
At no time since the commencement
of the prosecution againtst Sheriff Geo.
A. Williams has there been a greater de
gre of public interest than was shown
in the last act of the prosecution, which
occurred here this afternoon. Promptly
at the spening of court at two o'clock
the case was called, and the Sheriff
brought in for sentence. The Court
asked if either counsel had anything to
sav why sentence should not be nr
ccanced. There being no reply

The independent press are about of one
mind that theeipher investigation only
resulted to plague the republicans. The
bpringfield Republican, the ablest of
this class of journals in the country, says
'•What we mean to say is that the Trib
une, in the great heap of its wisdom has
done what it leas' of all desired —recall-
ed Mr. Tilden to the upper air in the old
and formidable character of an honest
patriot. Nay more—it has added to this
the attractiveness of injured innocence
and the mystery of an unexplored job.
'Two days ago it was a question whether
Mr. Tilden could become a powerful
com;>etitor with Bayard, Hendricka and
Thurman for the Democratic nomina
tion in ISBO. Thit question is now set
tled. Ihs examination at the Fifth Ave
nue Hotel on Saturday leaves no doubt
whatever on that j>eint. He has fought
his or Actium and the victory for
the present rests with him. Richard is
himself again and the Tribune has lost
the fruits of its last summer's victory, so
far as the annihilation of Mr. Tilden is
concerned. It did not know when to
leave oil", and so it has already sacrific
ed its margins and begins to "rehypothe
cate." Having Gail Hamiltoned Blaine
into a rapid decline, it has now involun
tarily "kited" Tilden into the political
stock exchange once more and made
him a good investment, at leaat for the
present. Mr. Raid's journaliatic boom
erang has returned to slap the face of
Mr. Gould's prize journalist."

•Some annoying jokes are being passed
over the recent outcome of the cipher
investigation. This one by the World

says: In view of the remarkable con

come it may not be amiss to recall the
experience of the youth who, exulting
in the possession of his new jack-knife,

While Ganaral Sheridan and Secreta
ry Scburz were interchanging sarcasms
as to the fitne.** of the military or of the
Indian lkreau to take charge of the In
dian pr.iblem, the Cheyenne* were
show log by desperate fighting and he
roic death* their view* of the question.
It i* d tlicult to imagine a more scathing
rebuke of the iniquities and swindles of
our so-railed Indian policy than that
the Cheyenne- preferred death to again
• -on ing under the fostering care and
I prutecii nof the wL. f * man and hi*
"Indian Agencies" and "Reservations."
Ttiey fought until the last man was kill
ed and after tbeirammunition was spent
they rushed with knives on the troops.
They had taken refuge in a pit that
formed a sort of fortification and which
gave shelter to their women and chil
dren. From this defense they opened
etlvitire lire on tb.e troops, but as their
ammunition gave out our troops closed
around the pit ami fired down into the
defenseless savage*, but no cry for mer
cy carre from them. In short, it pre
sented that unpleasing spectacle of a
massacre in which our troops were the
butchers and the dauntless savages the
heroes. In the pauses of
while the smoke was too thick to per
mit the -oldiers to see the agonies of the
Indians, their death songs could he
heard. The haughty braves were
• hunting their last defiance. When all
were dead but three, these three came
tip out of the pit and charged the lineof
soldiers with their hunting knives, and
of cotir*e. fell riddled with bullets,
i'heu lb' 'r went down into the pit
and found tiiat the squaw* and their
ththlren were nearly all dead, by the
bullet* of the soldier*. Thus ended one
of tbe "Indian problems." It was solv
ed aud will not urise again.
The lesson which it teaches is the
fierc" scorn and hatred of the white*
which have been bred in the Indian
bren-t by the long-repeated swindle*
and wrong* put upon them by the In
dian agents, eivit: aud military. It may
be well to know what General Sherman
thinks of the Indian question, what
Carl Schurz thiiiks, what I'nil Kkeridan
thinks, but it is also weli for tbe coun
try to know what the Indians themsel
ves think. The Cheyenne* have given
in the.r answer. It is that they have
been defrauded of their lands by treaties
never meant to be kept;that they have
been swindled by agents, foil with rot
ten meat and defrauded with rotten
blankets, < ursed with tbe white man's
whisky and hi* dit-ea*e, goaded into
desperation by wrongs of all kinds and
treated with renewed injustice when
they nought retire**, until they felt thut
the time had come to die, so they choose
their ground, sang their death song*
ami passed beyond the reach of the
white man'* loving care and protection.
Even Mr. Carl Schurz ought to feel some
nmgivings about the success of his "In
dian policy."
Charles Elheritlge of St. I'uul, Minn.,
defrauded a hank of forty thousand dot
lut* ami lied front the State. He was
overtaken by remor.-c, and has frilly re
imbursed the sw Imi led institution by
turning over to it the hulk of his real
and personal property, and he now ask*
to he reinstated in the church of which
he was a member. In a letter to his
former pastor, he says of his crime tbst
"the step was one horn of desperation,
lending mindly as it were off the high
ground of integrity into the deep and to
me unknown abyss of crime," and he
adds that "atonement for weakness in
yielding to temptation and prayer to be
sustained in that object and to kesp mo
from temptation will he a daily and
hourly imposed duty." Etberidge ap
