A despatch from Prairie City Illinois
und:-r dale of the 2.1 says : A fearful
tornado parsed a m'le and a-half north
of here yestenl.-.y afternoon. '1 he storm
traveled ea-tw ird sweeping nearly every
thing before it tor hitlf a inde in width,
bloving dowa houses, bains, out houses,
'lire-?, telegraph Jcdes, and killing and
itijmir.g several persons. A number of
hordes p cattlu were killed and injured.
On the 2"2id Lieutenant General Sher
idan sent a despatch from Chicago to
iLe Secretary ot War as follows :
"General Atigiir telegraphs that Colo
nel Mackenzie, with six companies of
tlio rourlh Cavalry and tweuty five J
Seminole sepals, struck a camp of Kick-1
npoo a::d Ltjjin Indians, about eighty
uiiles fioai Fort Cl.-.ik, Texas, early ou
the I Sib inst., having marched all the
night previous. They killed nineteen
Iiidians, wouuded two, aud captured one
back, a former chief of the Lining, and
loi ty oue women aud children, besides
destroying two villages with their accum
ulated property. He had three of his
men wounded, one mortally, lie had
already over fifty captured ponies.''
A proiiibitokv li(ii-r law is favored
by the committee iu the Canadian Parli
ament, which has been stu lying the
connection between intemperance and
ciim". They assert upon official infor
mation that four-fifths of tha ciimes com
mitted in that cauntry result from this
vice; for instance, 2 1,230 commitments
of 2S.2S9 made in Quebec and Outario
were to be traced directly to intoxication.
The committee forlify their statements
by the opinions of 153 doctors, who
agree that disease and premature death
arc the. results of indulgence in ardent
spirits. The fiscal objection to prohibit
ing the liquor traffic, that to do so would
deprive the State of an annual revenue,
which last year was f 5.034 543 48, they
meet by the argument that an equal sum
would be saved, under prohibition, in the
cost of hospitals, jails, conrts, and the
other appliances with which society now
strnggles against intemperance.
A despatch from Jlariisburg to the
Philadelphia Inquire under date of May
21th says : A case of great importance
to the Pennsylvania Railroad Company
was argued in the Supreme Court to day.
It involved the right of the plaintiff to
recover damages for the killing of a man
on a crossing at a public highway, where
the plaintiff proved affirmatitely that the
person killed did not stop, look nor listen
before he drove on the crossing. Coun
sel for the company contended ' that this
was negligence in law, and this was de
nied ou the other side.
Tlje question was fairly raised by
counsel, and the court seemed dnly im
pressed with his argument. Great inter
est is felt in the case here, as it is thought
to involve the safety of passengers and
travelers, and is an entirely new point
The rase is of great importance to the
railroad company, as it would hold them
responsible iu every case of injury at a
public crossing if decided against them.
It is thought the decision of tGe court
below will be reversed.
Tho case referred to by despatch is
the one commonly known in this county
as the-BealeCase." E. D. Parker is
I he 'counsel' who carried the case up to
the Supreme Court.
Mississippi hire out her convicts at
SIS a month and doesn't find them.
THE MODOC WAR.
Hair of Captain Jack's Band Surrendered.
Caj tain Ilasbrouck li ft Boyle's Camp
May 7, and has been ecoutingever aiuce.
Ilia command consists of Battery B.
Fourth Artillery, troops B and G. First
Artillery, and Warm Spring Iudians
numbering in all 210 mm.
Captain Jack had change of troops B
and G, wiih which he harassed the In
dians. XI is men fought well in every
instance, and paid little heed to hunger
so that they vanquished the Iudiaus
Captain Ilasbronck especially praises
the gallantry of B troop and a portion
of G i'i the charge at Dry lake.
The men scaled a ridge tweuty-five
feet high iti the face of the Modocs, and
drove them away. Captain Jackson. led
the right, and Lieutenant. Mo?s the It ft,
and Lieutenants Botitelle and Kyle held
the other bold positions. Captain Has
brouck has not lost a man since the Dry
Lake engagement. Artena, Chokus,
Longlegs, One.eyed Dixie, and two Mod
oc resident of this ranch, last evening
interviewed the five women captured by
Captaiu Ilasbrotick's command, and from
them gleaned interesting accounts of the
Modoc operations during the few months.
The captives are Mrs Wachmetel, Bos
ton Bbarley's two sisters, the mother of
Black Jim, aud one maiden w hose rela
tives have attained no notable distinc
tion. They report that Shacknasty Frank
Shacknasty Jake, Shacknasty Bill,
Steamboat Frank, Klleu's Man, Hooker
Jim's father, Boston Nick and several
other Modocs have been killed, and many
wounded, duly headed Jack carried
a piece of lead in his body several days,
and when last seen was apparently
'booked' for the happy hunting grounds
The inability of Little John to travel at
a rapid pace delayed the band. Uaa
brouck ei. countered and got the Modocs
into this last difficulty. The account of
the cause of disaffection among the Mod
ocs after the battle is interesting. Cap
tain Jack consulted a stolen chronometer
aud, after sundry gestures aud exclama
tions, info, mod his followers that they
would shed rifle bullets as a duck does
water, and escape unharmed.
Ti e confidence this statement iuspired
was rapidly dispelled by Captain Has
brouck's encounter, w hen several Modocs
were killed and others wonuded. Indig
nation reigned supreme in Jack's house
hold. The Cottonwood branch of the
tribe from Fairchild's decided that they
would fight no more. This resolution
led to Jack's clandestine departure.
The Col ton woods, numbering twenty
warriors and fifty women and children,
hurried to the Snow Mountains, at the
southern end of the lava deposit, prepar
atory to traveling to the Yainoi reserva
tion, and imploring pardon from thcGreat
Father at Washington. The sudden ad
veut of Hasbronek's cavalry and Warm
Spring Indians disturbed their peaceful
meditations and caused them to run or
fight. During the stampedo Mrs. Hen
dricks, alias "Limpey," threw her six
months' old infant to tha ground in the
i lionn nf wifmin.
but was soon after

I he babe was brought hither aud turned
ug!it miner aud turned
over to a squaw.
Artena also learned from Modoc wo
men that tho Cottonwood Indians earn
estly desired any action looking to the
restoration of peace, aud would yield to
the soldiers if an opportunity were offer
ed to them About this time the Warm
Spring Indians, who were outside the in
terviewing apartment, commenced sing
ing one of their national melodies, aud
drawing their knives across their mocca
sins, which raused uneasiness among the
squaws, and terminated the consnltatiou.
Capt Hasbrouck said he was willing
to Iiave4.hu Modocs surrender, and would
afford them every facility for so doing.
Artena, Cbokus and Dixie, who bave
hitherto been of great service to the
government, ca ight the idea immediately
and wanted to be employed as emissar
ies. They were provided with horses
and provender for two days, and sent af
tcr the Modocs.
The women were taken into General
Davis' tent into the presence of General
Uardie, Colonel Gillem and Captain Has
brouck, Fairchild interpreting.
True to their nature they talked a long
while, but said little. Finally Artena
said the Indians were fifteen miles from
here, and they numbered 15 warriors
and 50 squaws and children. The Great
Spirit had caused their hearts to bleed
for the white people, and they all wan
ted to return to the fold and live in peace
among the whites , bat, iu the present
coudition of affairs, a doe regard for
their lives prevented them from appear-,
iug within reach of the army.
They wanted a peace talk,and said :
Let the White Father (meaning Gener
al Davis) come out and see them alone,
and talk over nutters. Through that
medium the parties might come to au
amicable understanding, but no Modoc
would ruriender without a peace talk."
Dixie corroborated the statements of
The interview lasted an hour and three
quarters. At the close General Davis
told Artena and Dixie to go back to the
Modoc camp to-morrow morning and tell
the Indians he should not come out for a
peace talk ; that he did not believe in
peace talks away from his men, and that
the Indiana must come to him if they
wanted to talk. He would aiiow them
to surrender, and they had until Friday
morning to make their appearance at bis
After that time b.4 should shoot every
Modoc found with a gun. Tha women
told Farchild they would not return to
the Modoc camp. That question will be
settled in the morning.
Yresa, May 23. From J. II Mc
Coy, who has jiut como in from Fair
child's, in eight hours and fifty m inutes,
we learn that the Hot Creek band were
brought in by Fairchild's party. Their
surrender was apparently unconditional
They gave up their arms and were put
under guard. The band numbered fifty
five men, women and children, including
fifteen warriors. Among the latter are
Bogus Charley. Shacknasty Jim, Curly -
Head Doctor, Frauk aud others the
best fighting men Captain Jack had.
Boston is believed to have been killed
Tho troops are hunting for Hooker Jim
It is supposed that there are twenty war
riors with Captain Jack, whose wherea
bouts is unknown, though it- is surmised
that he is iu the Pitt River Mountains.
- F.ukchild's Ranch k. May 22 3
P. M. At one o'clock ;this afternoon
Oue eyed Dixie returned to General
Pavis headquarters at a slashing pace,
his horse being completely blown. He
made obeisance, and at once let his
tongue loose, reporting that the Indians
were close at hand and ready to enter
camp nnder escort. All they asked was
Fairchild to coaie out and meet thru
No soldiers need come. The presence of
Fairchild would be considered a guaran
tee of good faith.
"Where is Artena !'' asked General
Davis. "Tied up," said Dixie : "long
ride and no water." The absence of
Artena gave rise to suspicions of foul
play, which were only dispelled by her
suaueu advene, cue, too, reined ner
foaming horse before General Davis, and
said the Indians were hovering about the
hills, ueir here, waiting to surrender to
Fairchild, Blair and two or three em
ployes of the former, with whom the
Indians were acquainted mounted swift
steeds, at the request of General Davis,
aud started with Dixie at five o'clock P.
M. The news of the intended surrender
of the Indians spread through the camp
like wildfire. The soldiers, Warm Spring
Indians and scouts were alike elated at
the prospect of a peaceful victory. The
squaw Dixie told General Davis that he
fore she started, tho Modocs feared the
soldiers would kill them the instant they
entered the camp.
First came Blair, manager of Fair
child's Raucbe, mounted ; fifty yards
behind him wag Fairchild, and, further
still, twelve Modoc bucks with their
squaws aud papooses. Among the bucks
were Bogus Charley, Steamboat Frauk,
Curly Headed Doctor and others of ltser
uote. They were dressed iu motley garb
nearly all of them wearing a portion of
the regular uniform of the United States
army, and every buck carried a Spring
field rifle. The women were dressed iu
clothes that had evidently been used by
the fair sex within the confines of civili
zati in. The Modocs said nothing, and
no one approached them until General
Davis came forward, lie met the pro
cession fifty paces from the house and
was formally introduced to Bogus Char
ley. He smiled sweetly on the general and
shook his hand, and then all the leading
warriors came forward and greeted him
cordially. Then every buck laid his
gun beside him aud waited orders Gen
eral Davis said : ' Give up your pistols
and all your other arms." Each buck
said he had not any arms. 'Then,' said
the goueral, "I shall give you camp
where you can remain to night, aud if
you try to run or escape yon will be shot
dead '' The order was explained and
all obedience promised.
The procession then moved across Cot
ton wood creek to a clump of trees. At
this point the tail end of the crowd came
in. These were half-naked children ,
geda squaws, who could hardly hobble,
blind, lame, halt, bony and the scum of
the tribe. There were sixty three per
sons, men, women and children twelve
bucks, twenty squaws and their children.
Fairchild says there are twenty bucks
missing from the Cottonwood branch - of
the tribe. Bogus Charley said Boston
Charley had been killed. The disaffec
tion heretofore reported is corroborated
by the captain of the Modocs, who par
ted company with Captain Jack eight

The artillery has been divided into
squadrons, and the Warm Spring Indi
ans into small parties, for purpose of fol
lowing Captain Jack's faction of the
Modoc tribe, and the re spective com
mands will start ont in a day or two.
2 O'clock JP. M. Another Modoc
has jnst entered camp and rurreudered.
It is Hooker Jim, the Lost River mur
derer. WASHiNaTO, May 23. The follow
ing was received here to-night :
"Sas Francisco, May 23. To Gen
eral Sherman, Washington : General
Davis reports that about half of the
Modocs, being whipped and hard press
ed by Captain Hasbrouck, have surren
dered unconditionally.' Davis says he
will push the pursuit of Jack and his
party, and hopes to end the war soon.

A despatch hpm Washington Iowa
under date of the23d ears : A terrific
tornado or whiilrind, accompanied by
hail and rain, passed .ever this section,
about six miles north of Washington,
yesterday afternoon. Houses, barns,
fences, trees, cattle and human beings
were caught up and whirled through the
air like mere toys, and then dashed to
the ground with such violence as to pro
duce iustaut destruction.
One can scarcely conceive the devas
tation or realize the foice of the tornado.
School was in session at a school house
six miIi-9 north of here, and the tornado

The lives of many persons were saved
by their hastily getting into the cellars
of their houses. Sad havoc was made
with all kiuds of stock.
Hail stones fell that measured nine
inches in diameter. The roaring of the
tornado was fearful, and could have been
easily heard ten miles. At this place,
six miles away, it was perfectly appall
ing, surpassing in terror anything ever
A telegram from Keota last evening
says five persons were killed about three
miles from that place. One child was
torn to pieces.
The loss of life and property by the '
tornado was much greater than at first
renorteil. Six morn nersons have died
since morning, and the destruction of
property is enormous. In the town of
Lancaster but one house was left stand
ing. No one is reported killed, but a
large nnmbe r were seiiously injured.
Keota, May, 23 The most terrific
storm ever known in this part of the
State passed over here yesterday about 3

and a half of this city sweeping every
thing before it. Up to tbe present time
four persons are reported killed and eight
slightly hurt. Eight houses, three barns,
one saw mill and several grancries were
' Between two hundred and three hun
