E titers Democia'. !f. Shir :
Gestlkmfv : The a!l-aborbin?; topic of
iveret here, ro-, is the Indian raid on
Furl Uer.ton. It i ccrrenily reported that
reverai hundred cf the C'.ood, Fekan
and PoRtJen.x hara driven ihe few scat
tered inhabitants in ' ihai vicltii'y into the
Fori, and thai the place is now infested by
tha so cai.'eJ "frietidiy sons of the forest,"
fur whom there is a vast amount of sympa
thy espr?isd by Ccnjres a::d the people
of tho Ki'ierii S:a!c?. It will be remem
bsred lht vvilhin the last fe'. yers, no
lhan threa cQcers who wera pent against
thasc blood-lhir.siy and tI.ody -''son? ol the
fores!. " have been courlmariiaie l for ma!
treatment of these crea'.nree.ihs aaihori
ties preferring to temporize? with ih3m and
persuade Ihern to be peaceable by expend-
m iara ams of money in making ihem
cotly preset-ts and distriboiing heavy an
nuities anion? them. . And it is a fact,
patent to almost every cne who knows any
thing alont the hitory of these far western
Jndiaa. that they place no value cpon tlje
! trinket. and other 05e!es presents bestowed
upon them. And (hey havo been known
to throw thatn away as soon as out of the
j presence -cf ihe agent. Even at the last
treaty mads' at Benton, a few months ago,
many of jhem tore to pieces and trampled
under their feet the presents given iherri in
the very presence, of the agent and ihe
Covernor, . Ihos showing how little tbey
cared for boch things. Did ibe authorities
fully understand tha nature cf the Indian,
the "treachery and malignant crcelty of
which he is capable, and their otter disre
gard cf, and contempt for the treaties of
amity and peace that are o frequently
made with them coald they come and see
for themselves, the atrocities and barbari
ties commiued by the Indians upon de
fenceless women and children, they woold
pursue a dHirer;t policy wilh them. If the
government had placed honest men in
charge of'Indian affairs, in all cases and
the annuities had been fairly and equitably
distributed (here migbi now, and .doubtless
wonld have been, a very dillerent slate of
affairs. Cut there is do douht that the raoel
valuable portion of ,ths nhbitiss and pres
ent designed for the Indian have, in rnanj
cases, been -withheld by ih'i ,aoenta and
sold to traders', or kept for their own use.
The Indians know thi, and .heDC8 ijjey
have no faith in their profession of friend
thip that are rnadal- lo-'tbem "every year.-

belongs to them and ihey will never treat
with the United States for the sale of it.
The Sioux nation is the most powerful and
the' most hotifo'of all. Things have now
gotten into such a shape that they must be
conquered before any lastirm peace can b
made with iliem. The 'oovernment ' will
listen lo the apparently fair and p'.aiibU
reports of its authorized agents, that all is
peace, that the Intlians are satisfied and
have been persuaded to mnrder and Meal
no more, when the fact is, thm the ink is
scarcely dry, before another outbreak recurs.
Thus (he government is kept in ignorance
of the true state of the case. Of course,
the causes of these outbreaks aro never at
tributed to the agent, the honest triend (?)
of the Indian. It is the opinion of all who
have become, in any degree, acquaint!
with the character of these ravages, an I
who are fntniliar with the facts of their out
rages and barbarities, together with iheir
mode of warfare, that the enly way to make
a permanent treaty wilh them is to act c-n
Gen. Connor's plan. He remarked that tie
had made . peace with them a number of
limes; but ihat now he was going to
"make pieces of ihern." The only way in
which they can be subdued, and made to
sua lor peace, is to carry war inio their
homes and villages. So long as a desultory
warlare is carried on with the warriors they
have ihe advantage, and cari kee; out of
ihe way of a superior force and ihey snap
their fingers at ihe impotent eutiris made to
conquer them. But let Ihe war be carried
le their home, and they will soon ft;el it?
elTecis. The Snakes and Bannacks were
eubUued in lhai way and they are now as
peacable as need to be. And for that ser
vice Gen. Connor received ihe severe cen
sure of ihe government ; and for pun .suing
ihe bloody Sous and r-hi-ns last Fall be
tween the Notih and South 1 ieita, he i- t
be superceded, by a mere bov m la.Iid.ii
warfare. Il is reported that th? blatant
General, who was going to have h;3 head
quarters in ihe saddle and had no lines cl
reire.it laid oal, bul was goitJg straight to
Uichmond, is to take Connor's place. If
ihe latter were allowed to have his ovrr,
way with them, he would soon snbdueilie:n
' in in a lasting nc.arfl. Hut t ha t v wnn !,l df-

The larmers and miners are already making
prepirations lor planting and mining.
Many ct the latter have been at wcrk for
two or ihree weeks. New diggings ara
cour-Untly being discovered. Trie discov
ery at Sun Kiver is reported a lailufe. And
ihe report that from 75 to 100 persons had
been frozen to death on that stampede is
not cn!y confirmed, but ihe nambor al

from Salt Lake City have Ia;eiy crrne in and
others are on ihe way, which is the cause
of the decline. "Freighters are preparing lo
start to that place; some have already
gone. The work of confiscation is still going on
in Virginia City. A pelition was lately
golten up, signed by all the principal mer
chants, and presented to Gov. Meager,
praying lhat the goods might be returned
lo their owners, bul the Governor replied
that he could do nothing for them. It is
reported that he (the Governor,) is imo.fi
caied more than half his time. He is tak

Political news is very scarce. Almost
every man you meet is anxious to ifnow
something about' MazimiHian and the Mex
ican a .7a irs. Eut we can gel no 'definite
inlormalion on tho subject. Gen. Grant's
report on the condition and feelings cf the
Southern people, will doubtless operate a
a damper upon ihe disunion radicals in
Congress and the North genera. ly. What

the poor negro display, when contrasted
with bis former happy one. That -is-, con

But what does the mo;ori:y of the negroes

lhat they can be taught to understand and

follow il up wilh another brief communi

before the people is one of paramount in
terest to every Pennsylvania:!. Uetweer.
Clvmep. and Geary, the contest lies, and
upon otic or the other of them, will devolve
the. Chief executive Office of State. In
my Hrst letier I spoke of the relative quali
fications of the respective candidates for
Governor, and also adverted to some of the
benefits or injuries resulting to the people
in the event of the election of one or the
other to said office.
Our State. Constitution was framed for the
protection of its citizens, the security ol all
their inestimable rights, and for the main-
lainance of a mr.re perfect Union. The
Executive ofTi.'er when entering upon the
du'iss of his charge, solemnly ewea:3 to
"preserve, protect and defend the Constitu
tion." And in any and every instance
wherein he permits its violation without re-m.ir.-.lrar;ce,
lie perjures his own soul.

claim that lite i'legal arrest and unwarrant

without the knowledge ol Governor Andrew
G. CurtiT ? Cer;:ii:;!y no'.-
Then he was not only unfaithful
tru?:, in the violation of his Constitutional
ob'.'jaticn, but stands perjured before the
law. and, if he gets his flues, wi!! be prose
cuted and punished fcr every such outrage.

"Your position is not over and above

"Why not saV a in a public way ? ' I re
