    The Huntingdon Journal
Wednesday Morning, Nov. 29, 1871
A Rare Chance to Secure the Leading
Literature of the Day!
Every head of a family, in the country, should
subscribe and pay for his county paper. He
that attempts to raise a family without giving
it the advantage of a newspaper, in this en
lightened and christian age, is criminally neg
ligent. We think that every man, without
exception, raising a family, should spend from
styli dollars to TWENTY-FINE dollars a year,
according to his means, for this kind of edu
cation, and we hope to lice to see the day
when there will not be an exception to this
rule in Huntingdon county.
We want every body in the county to take
the JouaNAL, we don't care what party you
belong to—Republican, Democrat or Temper
ance man. If yon are a Republican, we are
with you heart and soul; if a Democrat, you
ought to know what we have to say about
you, no that you can act and vote intelligently,
and if you are a temperance man, we assure
you that no one will administer severer blows
upon the whiskey business than the JOURNAL
will, and if the whiskey men don't like it, why
let them do as they do with whiskey that is
distasteful, take the less of it. We believe
newspapers, like preachers and school teach
ers, should be on the side of morality and good
order. But the Touassi will uphold only that
which we, in our humble judgment, think to
be right, regardless of consequences.
The development of the county, iu every re
spect, will be its constant and undeviating aim,
and in this respect it will be to every ma 's
interest to subscribe for it. We want to build
up Manufactures, Mechanics and the Arts on
every hand, and by subscribing for the Jona-
NAL you assist and encourage us in our design.
The next year will be an eventful one; a
President, Vice President, Governor and Con
geese are to be elected and a Constitutional Con
vention will be selected to remodel the Con
stitution of the State. We have outgrown the
old one, and if you want to keep posted you
must have the papers. Take the JOURNAL first,
and if you won't take it, in the name of intel
ligence, take some other one, but don't be
without the news. _ _ .
For the purpose of distributing good Litera
ture, in connection with the Jou atm., which
we think good enough of itself, we have ar
ranged to furnish the following-named leading

WASHINGTON, D. C.. Nov. 24, 1871.
The shooting of a hundred Apaches in
April last, three-fourths of whom were
women and children ; the mission of Vin
cent Colyer to Arizona, and his return
with reports favorable to the Indians; and
the subsequent report by telegraph, of the
murder of F. A. Loring, of Boston, (a
young author of great promise.) and others
of the stage coach party passing through
Kirkland Valley, Arizona, have given the
Apache Indian question a prominence
which has attracted the attention and en
listed the feelings of officials here and the
communities generally throughout the
In his preliminary report. to the Secre
tary of the Interior, and in his interview
with the President, Mr. Colyer narrated
the enthusiastic manner in which he was
everywhere received by the Apaches, who,
when informed that he was on a mission
of peace, came to him, by scores and hun
dreds, bearing white flags. When assured
that they would be protected, they ex
pressed their willingness to go up in such
reservations as might be selected, and re
main there. Mr. Colyer expresses strong
eonfid, ace in their peaceable disp sition ;
but says that they have been the victims
of inhuman treatment. They are pushed
from place to place by the advance of the
white settlers, and are deprived of their
corn lands and hunting grounds. The
Indian Chief Soute, of the Apache Mu
hawes, came in with sonic of his people, so
prostrated by hunger and sickness, that he
could not stand, and was permitted to lie
down. This was at Camp Verde. overlooking
the Rio Verde, and about 25 miles north of
the U S. military pat. Gen. Graver and
staff, and Mr. Colyer were present. After
the Chief Soute wi:s fed. he ruse parti.mlly,
and resting upon his elbow lie replied as
fellows to the question why they could not
provide food as formerly :
" Listen : Sec the vrhitc man's ranches along that
valley below. Many years me and my men plant
ed Indian corn there; but white man come and
told In Ban to go, or be shot with rifle. So in all
the good valleys. Now, see three white men,
(pointing to the mountains,) coming down with
their rifles. Many white hunters go all over the
mountains and get all the deer and game. Deer
very scarce, and very wild now. Indian can't get
near enough to kill with bow and arrow. Got no
rifle; nu powder. White man uot give any. Says
Indian will shoot white man if he gets plenty
General Graver corroborated the story
of the Chief, as indicating the true cause
of the hepless condition of the Apaches
and other tribes in Arizona.
Mr. Colyer is now preparing his regular
official report of his mission and what he
accomplished. Your correspodent bad a
conversation with him to-day. In reply
to an inquiry as to whether the murder of
the stage coach party was by Indians or
white men, he replied : "Probably by In
dians," and continued, "I rode over the
same road by stage a month ago. In pass
ing through Kirkland Valley, near Vick
enburg, the stage stopped at a tavern, and
we found the family greatly excited, over
the murder of an Indian. The landlord
declined to give the details of the affair,
but asked for seats in the stage for his
wife and daughter, as they must leave or
-roil the rick of being murdered that night
by the Indians. The stage was full, but
arrangements were made for the women to
obtain seats. After travelling some dis
tance the women were drawn into conver
s aim). by their fellow passengers, and told
the stvry as follows :

'The Indian was standing in the front door of
the tavern when three white men came up the road
on horseback, awl demanded a Herring's rifle
which tile Indian held in hiA hand, No, was the
reply, this is my gun—my property. Jump off and
take it, says ono to another, upon which one of the
riders dismounted and reached for the 'ills. The
Indian stepped bank. The white man sprang for
ward and seized the rifle, and with the butt end
knocked the Indian down in the door of the tavern.
We screamed, and begged the party not to murder
an Indian in the tavern, or his tribe would retalli
ate by murdering the inmates. The Indian was
dragged out and killed, and buried there in the
yard, when the party mounted and rode off with
his rifle. The day following, a straggling party
of the same tribe of fedi:ins, the Apache Moliswes,
were coining up the road, soliciting work from the
farmers along the route, as is their COPOLII. When
within a mile of the tavern where the Indian was
killed, three farmers, who supposed they were
coming to attack the tavern. fired into the Indians,
about twenty in number, and wounded or killed
several of them, who were carried oil by their asso
ciates in their rapid retreat."
"This is the st,ry," stir} Mr. Gayer, "as
tad me by these women. As the Apache
Mohawes had up to this time been at peact
and were not included with those against
whom General Crook was conducting his
campaign; and as this branah of the tribe
numbered some 2,500 people, the settlers
were all in a state of consternation and
alarm, and were hourly fearing an attack.
The reported attack upon the stage may
be one of the results."
In reply to an inquiry by your corres
pondent, as to the reports from California
that the Chief Chochise and his men were
leaving the reservation upon which he had
placed them, Mr. Colyer said that it was
not so. Contractors, traders, and saloon
keepers were pecuniarly interested in keep
ing up a war with the Indians, and draw
ing and retaining troops in the country.—
The two papers published in the-Territory
are in their interest, as is also an influen •
tial member of the Associated Press in
California, who sent telegrams, East, in
the interest of the contractors, traders, and
saloon keepers. Mr. Colyer showed your
corresp-ndent a telegram just received
from the Indian Agent at Sante Fe, saying
that Chief Cochise and his men are en the
reservation, as Mr. Colyer left them.
Your correspodent inquired if the Indi
ans were disposed to be industrious if an
opportunity to work was offered. Mr. C.
said they were. Col. Green, of the Ist U.
S. Cavalry, says :
"The Apache Indians furnished 100 tons of lty,
for which he paid them in dour. They brought it
into his ramp, in White Mountains. 15 tons a day.
They supplied the garrison with all the wood they
used, bri ging it in at the rate of 3 cords a day,
using their hands and a few old broken axes to
oreak it off, and the hay they cut with old knives.
The whole was brought in to the post on their
Mr. Colyer's report, when submitted,
will be strengthened by testimony from
officers of the army any others, in support
of the peaceable and industrious disposi
tion of the Apaches Mr. C. has had many
years' experience among the Indians. He
has been with the Chiefs and among the
tribes of nine-tenths of all the Indians in
the United States, including Alaska. Be
is a member of the Board of Indian Com
missioners, and is its Secretary. And it
is fair to s.y that his statements in refer:-
ence to the Apaehrs ate entitled to as
much credit, at least, as the statements
from interested parties in Caliti,rnia, com
iug through the telegrams of the Associa
ted Press. It is s:tnply a struggle for
mastery between the adrccates of war and
extermidation, and those in favor of the
peace and conciliation policy of the Presi
dent and Administration. N. H. P.
Senator Scott and the Vice-Presidency.
The following appears in the morning
papers here with the approbaation, it is
stated, of Senator Scott: The friends of
Senator Scott, of Pennsylvania, feel more
confident than ever of securing his nom
ination for the Vice-Presidency iu 1872.
on the Republican tiiket. It is their in
tention, however, to be guided by the feel
ing manifested at the Convention. They
insist that if Pennsylvania is to have the
Vice-Presidency, Mr. Scott seems to be
the only available man in the State in pub
lic life who has kept from political disseti
sons aoiong the Curtin and Cameron fac
tions and therefore his name would be en
d used by both of these respective classes.
Of course any movement looking to the
nomination of Senat.d. Scott for the Vice-
Presidency will meet with strung oppk,si-
Con from Cameron."
The above is found in the Washington
dispatch to the Pittsburg Uommercial of
Saturday. There has been a general fed
ing in this State, as well as among the
members of Congress and officers at Wash
ington. that Pennsylvania deserves au
appropriate recognition for political ser
vies, :;ucl for reas ins that are obvious to
any one acquainted with the politics of
the State, such recognition could no more
effectively given than in the person of her
promising S:-n itor. We cannot credit the
gratuitous assertion that such a movement
would meet with strong opposition from
Senator Cameron. _
There is no other man is Pennsylvania
who h is held important offices us long as
Senator Csweron. and we bAieve that we
may sorely say, that there is no other pub
lic man in the State whoseofficial acts will
bear closer scrutiny, and though the Sena
tor has been spoken of in entnection with
that office himself, we understand that he
h is declined to allow his name to be used,
and those who mihnot injure hint in any
other way, resort to just such misenble
means as the para,:raph in this dispatch, to
represent him as opposed to every other man.
but himself. Although it is not a matter
that should influence the people in the
least, we have reason to believe that our
senatorial representatives have always
worked for the good of the State and the
Republican party in it, and there is no
good reason to believe anything contrary
will be done in the future.—Meadville Re
Arrival of the Grand Duke Alexis
New York, Nov. 20.
The announcmont yesterday morning of
the safe arrival of the lightship of the
Russian frigate Svetland, with the Grand
Duke Alexis on board, created great excite
ment and a general feeling of joy through
out the city. It servedat once to dispel the
fears of his safety entertained by same, and
to communicate to our citizens the welcome
news that the long expected imperial visi
tor had come. The delay of his arrival
beyond the anticipated time has heigh
tened the excitement concerning his visit
to America, and will undoubtedly tend to
increase the enthusiasm with which he will
be greeted after he has landed on our shore.
It is expected the Grand Duke will be
landed in the city about 2 o'clock this
afternoon, when the military will be in
readiness to escort him to the Clarendon
hotel, City ball, Grace church and other
prominent buildings will be appropriately
dressed with bunting, and as his imperial
highness passes up Broadway the Trinity
church bells will chime the Russian na
tienal hymn. Clarendon House alone will
display the imperial flag of Russia.
