cogerip to the leading productive interests

wtth a more concise and conclusive show
ing than "R" has .made 'upon the points
following: e.
Ist. The intrinsic value of the mineral

the trade, by which the raw material seeks
the fuel for its conversion, and not the pon
Brd. The , speedy eihaustion of the fuel
'resources of .that iron region itself. ,
4th. The constantly increasing competi
tion of smelting 'works, which, ycar by
:year, find other , locations not liable to that
expense of land trarispoitation, for either
ore or fuel, which more and more embar
rasses the enterprise of manufacturers here;
sth. The entirely practicable method by
which the iron -masters of this region of
Pennsylvaniaxiay overcome that disadvan
tagenlmost wholly, 'by the 'obvious provls
ion of suitable fiicilitiei for a cheap and
capacious waieicarriage, in unbroken bulk,
froin'the ore-lands on the Lakes directly to
their mills.
The irbn-master who flatters himself-that
Pittiburgh will ever 'maintain her former
pre-eminence in that department of indus
try, will find it profitable to consider the
facts presented by our well-informed corre
apondent. When he shell comprehend the
fullbearing of these facts upon the , general
trade, he will find them stubbornly destruc
tive of ail his anticipations, and may then
see that his present confidence Is a delusion.
The local tfade of this section may always
tinge one, 'but' the vii-eminence of
. litteburgh interests, in that respect, in ihe
markets of-the great;West, must, in the na
ture of things, soon become a glory

their own filets beenite/xhausted. But, in
thermion of the twomineiale, on the banks
of either the River or the Lake,is to be met
that serious Obstacle—the expense of trans
'portation. ' -
The - question is simply this. Can the
smelter'of Ifarquette buy'our coke, or can
the Pitteburgh iron-muter bring hither the
Superior ore upon any basis of fair competi
tion with the rapidly increasing trade, at.
more favorable, points, at a cost-of transpor
tation' three times greatex than his rivals
pay from other points 1, How long can
we hold the business at that disadvantage
In other words,hhw long do we expect to be
able to retain - a traffic which, we may al
ready see, is certain tn;be lost under the
inevitable operation of the plainest rules of
trade ?
. If the iron-interests of Pittsburgh can se
cure the transportation of the requisite- raw
material, either way, at one third the prei
mit cost, and by an expenditure quite mod
erately: within Utak ability, it needs no ar
gunient from us to enforce that policy upon
a claw who are understood to be quint esPe

interests at all times. We Shall w
space in argureent, to prove to them what
they ought to do. We.need only to supply
to them the needful data,and from the estab

struction but will act upon it.
We know that an expenditure of two
millions of dollars will give Pittsburgh a
mater-way to the Lake; to admit the passage
of vessels of at.least three hundred, and fifty

taken on at the Marquette dock can come

For the t time lathe histo f of Indian
affairs, our vernnient has a ed,
the past'few months, dclearly Wined 'and
absolutely racticable policy tuWard the
red men. G ded;by all past experience,
and after the most careful eoi4deratiOn of
the question in ail its bearings, both present
and future, the Commission to which this
,difficult question had peen referred, and
which was composed , of citizens the most
familiar with' the Indian . character as well
as the natural resources of all 'portions of
the,,Tast territory: now haunted by these
roving tribes, have adopted - the proposition
to set apart a considerable portion of. this
area, as a permanent reserration for their
homes, and to cause the settlement of the
Indians thereupon with the least - possible
- delay. Wherever persuasion fails to accom,
plish their quiet and submissive removal,
it -has been definitely ' decided • that,
the requisltitompulslon shall be made use' ,
of. With these tribes—not a few of them
having dwindled to mere skeletons of bands,
but some.of them still remaining formidable,
in numbers and in the possession of im
proved arms—once removed from their de
moralizing and destructive contact with the
whites, and isolated by wholeiome restraint,'
On both sides; from both the perils,, and the
teniptations . of ,the present association, they
are 'to be the exclusive occupants of a terri
tory. so large and varied as to support a
purely nomadic existence, and which shall
also' be capable of meeting those new con
ditions which must attend their gradual
transformation' into an agricultural and-do
mesticated people.
Whatever justice there may be in the
criticisms which have heretofore unipar.
ingly condemlied our Indian policy,_meas.
ruing its equity entirely by the results
which have attended it, that policy has
steadily, exhibited one most creditable fea
ture. Whenever a reservation of lends
luis been made for the benefit of these tribes,
it has invarkably been respected by this gov
ernment, and as far as possible protected
against white Invasion. "The advance of
civilization, in diskprogress of our Settle
ments, has frequently made fresh rem Ovals
necessary, butl. .all cases the, absolute
rights of the red,men have been otherwise
respected, and such . changes liaye. been
accomplished by , treaties efitiefactnu to both ,
parties. When, therefore, the reservation
policy, heretofore contbu4to isolated tribes,

tire nice on ail the' Westera Plains, and la
adopted ire a scale in all parieularkcorn
mensurate to their numbers, to the variety
of their tribal 'orgii&itiOne; said the 'pecu
liar requirements growing out if.their tribal
antipathies and , hereditary fends,: we are
justified in expecting that,-
. as the settled
wife) , of the Nation; it will be adhered to
with a "national good faith, aria - that the j
designated reservations will becareflilly and
permanently guarded from encroachment.
To this , policy, the I nd ians themselves
have not yet given n their assent Nor was it
needful that' they should. The duty was
ours to make the wisest provisions for a race
which is not qualified to protect or preserve
itself, and ,to enforce those' provisions, re
gardless of their natural opposition. And
this is ~i4:daY the position of the Indian
questi?n. A considernble number, of the
most powerful tribes oppose our liolicy,,and
are in arms
.to resist it! The merits of the
policy itself and tie efforts, of our military
arm for its establishment have been very
clearly, stated by Gen. Batsman, in , his re
port already printed, It appairs that
general Indian war is already commenced,
and that the tribes will not.sufeender with
out a sharp struggle. It is also evident that,
unlike all precedinglndianwars,this, instead
of being suspended by the approach of win
ter, is to be vigorously pushed without regard
to the anion. Glen. Summer; is evidently
of the Opinion-and it is sustained by ex
perience—that the' winter and not the ,sum-

most effective against that enemy.' A. win

a defeat at this season is almost equivalent

Destruction of; the Ohio Lunatic Asyltuns
The conflagration at the Asylum resulted
In :the destruction ,of both wings mid the
main building of the Limitation, with the
exception of the portion used for , a kitchen,
carpenter shoo
-and engine room. The hos
pital, greennonSe and stables, which were
separate buildings, were not harmed. The
origin of the fire has not been definitely 'as
certained, though fit Is generally believed
that it was owing to a defect in the heating
apparatus. The officers of the institution
are unable to give any definite information
on the subject. It is probable that nothing
positive will ever be known regarding it.
The fire was confined for some time to the
northern portion of the mist wing, audit is
a' matter of surprise to many that it should
have been allowed to spread, when such a
result could have been - prevented If', proper
Measures had been taken. The building
had no roof, and it was under it that the
flames made their way from the east to the
west wings. Had the roof been cut at the
proper time, and a stream of water applied
to, the devouring element, by far the greater
pa i r - or ,building might , have been
sa , It seems also that, in addition to
the other misfortunes, two of the steam fire
engines were notit good condition, and did
very little service. ' '
The loss to the state Is about $500,000.
The walls of the Asyltim appear to be in
good condition, and, may poidbly not be in
jured so much kut that they may be, used
for rebuilding.
The Journal gives this graphic description
of the /rescuing of the worst class of the in
mates t
The flames had cut off communication be
tweenlthe extreme end of the east wing and
the main building, so that the only hope of
rescuing the worst class of female inmates
from their perilous position was by break
ing through the heavily-barred windows, or
cutting a passage way through the tin-plated
roof. Ladders were thrown against the
Asylum's walls,' the strong iron grating
covering the windows,was torn away, and
the shrieking-lunatics were tenderly taken
in the arms of strong; brave men, and borne
down the long ladders to the gaand. Some
were led along the steep roof of the Ob
servatory and thence handed care
fully down to a place of safety others were
dragged through holes cut in the ceilings of
their cells, and passing out upon the high
root of the main building, moved through
the storm-like spectres walking in the air or
upon the sea. Many .of these unfortunate
women were almost *direly nude. Some
had nothing on but their night clothing,
some had sheets or blankets wrapped about
their , heads; others with their hair streaming
in the wind, looked like furies let loose.
The feet of almost all were without cover
ing, and not a,few were without covering
upon the upper portion of their bodies.'
'fhe Jourrtai mentions Messrs.. Louis
Sieherrt, Thomas Kelly, Mr. Hawkins and
one of the Asylum attendants as conspicu
ous for their daring deeds is resetting pa
tients from the fire. The Statesman men
tions Mr. Siebert, Mr: S. S. Rickly and Mr.
Albert S. Ford, and details the following
thrilling exploit:
In his last visit to the fatal east wing, Mr.
Siebert° narrowly escaped death. Against
remonstrance he dashed through a sea of
fire, followed by a noble attendant carrying
the keys or the hall, until they together
reached a room, the door of which was al
ready found to be a sheet off' Mime. Dash
ing through, Mr Siebert directed the light
'of a small lamp, which he held in his right
hand, to the only -bed in the room, but find
ing. it unoccupied, sprung but in the hall,
telling the attendant that the room was not
occupied by a patient. On being assured
that the room was occupied, "Mr. Siebert
again entered, andcasting the light from
his lamp around the room, discovered a fe
male crouching in a corner, ready Pispritig
at his throat. In her mad rush at him, he
fortunately caught • her right hand in his
left, and throwing away the lamp, trusted
in the fierce ensuing grapple in the darkness
to secure her other hand. He succeeded,
and although a powerful nun, found it ne
cessary to exert all his strength in bringing
the inmate to her knees; in which position
he dragged her through fire and suffocating
smoke to a place of safety. The great ex
ertion of the : wrestle, together with the long
exposure to the suffocating smoke and gas
of the room, overcame Mr. Siebert, and he
sank fainting to'the floor. Dra Peck and
Smith immediately administered restora
tives, and in a short Wilelin.was again on
lila feet, and away toward the west wing.
In a room in the front building he found a
sleeping man. Extreme difficulty was ex
perienced in inducing him to getup and
follow to a place of safety, but by little good
tact it. Was accomplished. •
When it - became evident that the whole of
the beautiful building must be burned, the
fire slowly, yet purely, traveling along the
front building in close- proximity to - the
west wing, where most of the male patients
had their rooms, the necessity of the re
moval of all the insane became a subject of
anxiety. , •
- The ; females, inhabiting the east wing,
and the , eastern portion of the south front,
were cared for, by being Conveyed to the
Deaf and Dumb Asylum in omnibuses and
'close carriages of every description that.
could be got together. Someof them, forced
from the building, were wildly violent,. but
under the firm care and kind treatment of
the attendants, who for months had kept
watch land ward over them, the patients
were removed without much difficulty.
One old lady, we noticed, seated in a car
riage, rwas wild with excitement. She
seemed determined to get out, and strug
gled hard for that purpose. She was anx
ious tolgo to her room, now, alits,%a sheet of
burning flame. At this moment we noticed
a young lady of , some twenty years, who
rushed'; up to the carriage, and as, e clasped
her arm around the old lady's neck, in, an
endearing tone said: ' "Aunty, I have
Come to take care of you." In an instant
the old lady was subdued, and, as she buried
her face the bosom of her Mend, for such
undoubtedly she was, she murmured, "Yes,
yes, my child," and was led to a different
carriage, where familiar fiices greeted her,
With the confiding faith of .a .child with its

• The removal of the male patients was a
work of more difficultly. Every description

service was inn in requisition. About fifty

His interest in General Grant's elettion was

Tan dispatch from New 'York that Gen.
Grant desired, before accepting an invita
tion to Evart's dinner,. to know whether
Randall, M'Culloch and. Welles were to be
there, as he did not wish :to meet either of
those gentlemen, went through ::each one of
them as if the current which , earae over the
wires continued its - course till it struck the
personstamed with a. miniature lighting
bolt. The aversion of General Grant to
social intercourse with these men arises
frOm their certifying to Mr. Johnson that
General Grant bad lied in his statement
about turning the War Office to. Mr, Stan.
ton. The feeling is most bitter against
Messrs. . Randall, 2d,'Culloch and Welles
who confined themselves to firrnishing
the written aversions' Mx. Johnson's want
ed.' But Randall went further, and among
the swarm of lobby men and low politicians
with whom ha is accustomed to think at the
public bars, he.did not hesitate to apply , the
tern' liar to General Grant. The General
knOtis of this, and his feeling of aversion
will be shared by all who know the men.

It took the morld'nearly two thousand years to dis
cover and remedy one of the most fatal errors that
mankind has ever believed in. From the time of
. Galen, to a comparatively very recent date, it was
supposed that, in order to cute a disease, It was ne
cessary to weaken the already , enfi.ebled patl•nt by
artificial means. Bleeding. blistering, violent pur
. cation and salivation were the main relishes of the
faculty, not more than fifty years ago. Restoratives
were only administered as supplMeatarf agents,
after the lancet, cantharidek, islitp and calomel had
done their depleting work. Modern science hu ef.: / '

"The morning that Lee surrendered he

talk. Lee said he , hoped I would offer as

he should, if lid wished to serve his fkiendi,
go to other armies in rozzeon and prevail
upon them to surrender. He said he would

suggestion ended. But : what wanted'to
