A Washington dispatch of tho 2d Inst.
Fays, "the house by an overwhelming
vote rrsolved to-day to practically re
store the franking privilege by setting
the 12th lust, as the day to consider a
bill for that purpose, tho dead heading
of letters is the only Improvement on
the old swindling law. The salve that
is intended to euro the wounded honor
of every man who votes for this bill to
revive dead head mall matter Is a pro
vision to allow newspaper exchanges
to be carried free. This will pleaso the
cout.trv newspapers and excuse the
votes ol country members."
A special dispatch fromConneautvllle,
Fa., gives an account of a most daring
and extensive robbery at that place Sat-
ui day evening. While the Cashier of
IhoFlrstNatonalBank, I). D. Williams,
was writing at Ids desk ho heard a rap
at the side door. Upon opening the dour
two masked men sprang upon him,
bound and gagged him, and succeeded
in making their escape with $14,000 in
currency and 30,000 In United States
bonds. Mr. Williams was found Monday
morning In an unconscious state, but
recovered consciousness In a couple of
hours after being released.

Hult in the Common Fleas of New York,
arxMn it ap licntlon was Sunday mado
to Judge Itobinson by the defendant to
compel blm under tho statute to clve

plaintiff. Mr. Genet's counsel Insisted
that ho had not given up his resldeuce
in this State, hut it being Inconvenient
for him at this date to occupy It lie was
on a temporary visit abroad. Tho
Court thought that the change was
permanent, the absence being forced,
and therefore tbo motion was denied.
The Senate 51 Hilary CommltteeTues-
day agreed to report a bill to be hero-
after framed for the equalization of
bounties. It will probably be on tho
basis of the bill Introduced by Senator
Caldwell last year, which proposed to
give a uniform bounty of eight and
one-third dollars per month to eaoh and
every officer or private who had served
at any time either in tho regular or
volunteer service, between April 01b,
1801, and April 15th, 1805, the bousty
payments already made to be deducted,
and tho benefit of the provision to be
extended also to the widows and other
belrt of deceased soldiers.
Gen. Sherman was before the House
Military Committee an Saturday last,
and In speaking of the present Indian
policy of the Government he said that
the Influence of the humanitarians,
who regarded murder on the part of
the Indians as a mere exhibition of
mora) insanity, had induced Gov.
Davis, of Texas, who ought to know
better, to commute the sentence of
SaUnta and Big Tree, and the same
Influences at Washington had finally
restored them to freedom, and they
were now on the reservation ready to
start out ou more murderous raids. If
tbey should scalp Gov. Davis tho next
time, be intimated that be would not
shed many tears. He reviewed the
Modoc.dlfficultles, and gave it as his
opinion that Gen. Canby had been a
victim of the temporizing Quaker policy.
He favored tho transfer of the Indians
from the control of the Interior De
partment to that of the War Depart

Gen. Harney) whoso namo exercised
such a wholesome terror over tho lios
tilo Indians a ccoro of years ago, but
wlro lias been retired from active ser
vice for tho last ten or twclvo years,
was before the Houso Comralt'.ce on
Military Affairs Wednesday, and was
aeked to give his views In referenco
to Indian matters. He gave it as his
opinion thatlf the Indians were treated
fairly there would never bo any diffi
culty with them. Ho had known but
two instances In whleh they had ever
violated treaty stipulations, and in those
two instances the Indians were to bo ex
cused, for tho treaties had grown old
before they were sought to bo enforced
by the Government, and the chiefs and
head men who had made them were all
dead. The troubles with the Indians
were principally caused by fraudulent
agents and by whiskey dealers. He
had never known an Indian agent who
had not grown rich In office except one.
On being asked how the whiskey sel
lers could bo suppressed, lie answered
without hesitation that they should be
hanged or shot by tho nearest military
officer. He would have the officer take
that responsibility. He was decidedly
of opinion that the management of the
Indians would be much moro efficiently
and honestly conducted by army officers
than by civilians, unless army officers
l.al changed very much since he knew
