    ely Agitator-
During, the. put week there have been
conflicting rumors as to the imminence of
the death of the Pope, but at fast accounts
he was reported as somewhat better.
t Last Friday very interesting services in
memory of the late Governor Seward were
held in Albany under the.auspices of the
Legislature of NeW York. An eliiquent
oration was delivered by Charles Francis
The bill passed by the State Senate giv' ng
half-pay to those Judges who retire- when
over sixty years of age after twenty years'
service on the bench failed in the House.—
A proposition of nearly the 4me nature
will probably be embodied in the new Con
stitution, so that the voters will hate a
ebance.to pass directly on the question.
We notice that certain New York jour
nals are charging on our State legislators
the stealing of $5OO back 'pay for effeh man.
This is a mistake. There were some mighty
mean men at Harrisburg last Ivinter, but as
a body the Legislature was not mean en
ough to follow the thievish example of the
late Congres§. We beg our neighbors over
the border not to paint the evil one any
blacker than necessary.
The New York State Senate doesn't pro
pose to be bribed by free railroad passes any
longel; ;but some of the members propose
to pass a law to compel the railroads to car
ry their precious persons " without money
and without price." These worthieS should
have been in Congress when the salary-grab
was on the carpet. They would have voted
most cheerfully for that steal.
The act,passed by the Legislature extend
ing the term of the present State - Treasurer
was one of the most objectionable ones in
troduced into that body. It simply oyer
rides and ignores the will of the people as
emphatically expressed last October, and
directly viol6 , ole spirit if not the letter
of the Constitution. In this connection
Mr. Maelley'slitness to hold the office does
not come in gripation at all. Grant that he
is the only llerson. in the whole State com
petent to - discharge its duties,,and it is still
evident that the Legislature in extending his
term for a year assumed a power which the
people had just said they should no longer
exercise. _s.
• Late dispatches from the lava beds, the
strongholds of the, Slodocs, tell of two days'
severe fighting botween the troops and the •
Savages last week: The reports are rather
misty as fo the exact result, one statement
being to the effect that eight red-skins were
killed, arid the remainder were fleeing be
fore our cavalry, -while another, furnished
by the inevitable " reliable gentleman,"
states that the enemy' had succeeded in
reaching a position still' more difficult of
assault than the one from which the.y had
just been driven. On the other hand, it is
officially reported that five of the troops
were 'killed and ten wounded in the two
days' fight.
Last Wednesday morning the Corititu
tional Convention reached a vote upon the
report of the Committee on Counties, when
the report of the committee was rejected,
and the proposition of lion. J. B. Niles was
adopted by a large majority in the shape
published by us last week, except as to the
number of inhabitants necessary to the cre
ation of a new county, which was increased
to 20,000. We trust this article will finally
pass the Convention, and be submitted to a
separate vote of the people of the State, so
that we can see just what the whole body
of voters, as distinguished from the corner
lot politicians, think of cutting up old coun
ties for private benefit.
Mr. George William Curtis and Mayor
Medill having resigned as members of the
Civil Service Advisory Board, the President
has appointed Mr. Dorman B. Eaton, of
New York, and Mr. Samuel Shellabarger,
of Ohio, to fill the nieces so made vacant.
We are pleased to note this evidence that
President Grant doesn't intend to allow civil
service reform to die from neglect; but we
should feel a good deal Anore confidence in
its final success -V a kW , appointments like
Collector Casey' hi had not been made. It is
very well to favor reform in the abstract;
but what the country .needs is the practice
of reform in particulars. When every in
competent, dishonest, or disreputable officer
is turned out immediately on tieing detect
ed, the civil service will be reformed.
A few days since the city of San Salva
dor, the. ekpital of the. Central American
State of that name, was destroyed by an
earthquake. The telegraph reports eight
hundred persons killed, and $12,000,000 of
property destroyed. The place contained
upward of 15,000 inhabitants, and was situ
ated near the base of the volcano of San
dor. It was almost entirely destroyed
in A. ril, 1854, when many lives were ,lost,
but the inhabitants rebuilt their ruined
houses, and now, after nineteen years, a ca
tastrophe more terrible than the preceding
one htis overtagen them. The city is over
three hundred years old; but it is believed
that this last terrible disaster will induce the
surviving inhabitants to put a greater dis
tance between the new capital and the old
.We notice that a few country journals are
pitching into Congress for abolishing the
free transmission of newspapers in the coun
ty 4ere pnblished. This is a 'very :mull
piece of business, and the sootier such weak
brethren " dry.up" the less discredit they
will bring upon themselves. We can't see
why anybody should claim the privilege of"
using the mails without paying a fair price
for the' service performed. Our common
Uncle Samuel is under, no more obligation
to carry newspapers free than lie is to fur
nish free transportation for anything else,

wok any longer for nothing' and find him

we believe there are very few payiny sub
scribers to any weekly journal who cannot
afford. to ):ay the very reasonable rate of
postage—twenty cents per annum—assessed
on such papers. And as for the journals
themselves, those that are in danger of
death from this source must be in a very
bad way indeed. A. paperl. which is worth
taking and reading is worth Paying postage
Whoever reads the dreadful story of vip•

that events in that unhappy State have al

The ii o i ors and Our Indian Policy.
Last week the country was startled by a
story of Indian treachery, and the "Modoc
war," which had for months afforded a Stand
ing head for the daily press while exciting
little real interest among the people at4arge,
suddenly became the theme of universal
thought Id discussion. The tale of abo
riginal pe Ady and bloodshed, as told by
the telegtph, is thrilling in its painful in
terest. Saturday morning, the 12th instant,
Captain Jack, the leaderiof the handful of
savages known as Modoes, sent a messenger
to Gen. Canby requesting an interview with
the Peace Commissioners outside the camp.
In compliance With this request, Gen. Can
by, Rev. Dr. Thomas, Mr. Meacham, and
Mr. Dyer, witlrtirorinte4ireters; started for
the place appointed. 'pie Commissioners
Were met by the Chiefs of the Modocs, and
a; " talk" ensued for ahout half an hour,
three of the Commissioners making a
speech. After they had concluded, Capt.
Jack, the leading spirit of the red-skins,
asked that a' certain reservation be assigned
there, and Mr. Meaeliani replied that it was
impossiblA to give what 1•11 e asked. Imme
diately Captain Jack gave the signal, " dll
ready," drew his pistol and snapped a cap
at Gen. Canby. The savage cocked his pis- .
tol again and fired, and Gen. Canby fell
dead, the ball striking him under the eye.
At the same time the remainder of the party
of whites were attaced by the savages,
and Dr. Thomas wns lain, while Meacham
was badly wounded.
Following close lii in the heels (4 this 1
story of barbarous pe fidy and s•iiipid cru
elty came the report otn,Washington that
the Government had ordered the taint vig
orous treasures looking toward the prompt.
punishment of the murderers. No doubt
the whole country was gratified to learn
that the Savages who had so treacherously
shed the l blood of one of the best and bravest
officers in the service were to be brought to
a speedy and terrible reckoning for their
crimes. .h.nd so far as the miserable au
thors of that crime are concerned, it is only
a matter of regret that we have as yet re
ceived no news of their utter extermination.
It is certainly to be hoped that: even the
fastnesses of the Lava Beds, which have so
lo g enabled them to baffle our forces in
th t region, may not long prove impregna
bl to soldiers anxious to avenge the blood
of the gallant Canby.
But whatever may be the result of the
Modoc war under the new phase which it
has so suddenly assumed, it is evident that
the event has already sufficed to draW the
attention of the country sharply to the con
sideration 'of our whole Indian policy.—
Writing under the impulse of sudden pas
sion and resentment, the conductors of the
daily press have already fully expressed the
nniversal sentiment of the people ) so far as
the few score treacherous Mottoes are con
cerned. Btirin jumping to the conclusion,
as some of them have done, that the deplo
rable massacre calls for the entire change of
our altitude toward the Indians, we believe
they do not express the judgment of the
country, as we arc happy to know that they
do not foreshadow the intentions of the
Government. The sensational press and
the party press are already using the death
of Canby to break down what is known as
the Peace Policy toward the Indians; but it
is hard to see how the fact justifies that end.
Those who have alWays been oi posed to
that line of policy may find in the event the
means of exciting prejudice againSt it; but
every candid man, unswayed by passion or
prejudice, must see that the crin of the
treacherous Modocs, black as it is, does not
justify the wholesale condemnation of all
other. Indians, or justify the violation of
our pledges made to them. It would cer
tainly be a novel and not a highly ,edifying
spectacle to see the settled policy of a great
government, which had been adopted after_
maturefleliberation, suddenly reversed by
the lawless outbreak of a few savages on
our western border.
In spite of a sudden tierce outcry from a
few partisans'muchj in need of a grievance,
we arc happy•to be assured that the well
considered policy of the Government to
ward the aborigipes will be steadily follow
ed out. Every effort will be put forth to
bring the Modocs to signal punishment; but
the innocent willnot be called' to account
for the sins of the gikty. _justice, sound
policy, and humanity Ake require that the
offenders shall be punished, and that those
who are_guilty only of a tawny skin shall
not be made to suffer for the crimes of Cap
tain Jack. - •
WASHINGTON, Aprit,ls, 18 t 3.
The 'War Department is in moment'al:
expectation of decisive news from the , lava
beds, and as the officers at the seat' of war
have instructions based on the first feelings
of anger at the treachery of the: Indians, it
is altogether likely our troops will not wait
for the sober second thought, but will mete
out to the Modocs a punishment at least sat
isfactory to the nation, if not to Capt. Jack
and his cutthroats.
No doubt every band of Indians on the
borders of our country is anxiously looking
for the result of the late atrocious murder
of Gen. Canby. It seems that the more
hostile bands hold our Government in su
preme contempt, and take - bur : peace Policy
as ail indication of fearman the part cif the
Government to enforce obedience: to its
lama. It is a nice point to decide at this
juncture just how'far to go in the punish
inent of Mr. Lo; but should the, , , present
temper of the public mind prevail, the Gov
ernment will be compelled to teach the In
dians a lesson they and their descendants
will never forget, and thus render life on
the borders comparatively safe. •
Torn Wright, the convicted murderer of
a peddler, Rogerski, has failed to get a new
trial, and is sentenced to behanged the - 30th
of May.
It will be remembered that the deceased
was found in the early part of the night a
few yards from the convicted man's dwell
ing, cold in death, with his head and face
so fearfully mangled and disfigured. that it
was difficult to identify him. Wright has
ever since his arrest been seemingly cool
and unconcerned, talking and laughOg with
any one that would converse with him; but
yesterday, when the motion"by his Counsel
for it new trial was disallowed, he became
low spirited. When, however, the Judge
asked him if he had anything to say why
judgment should not lie - pronounced, he
took courage and disclaimed knowing any
thing about the murder; and . when on his
way to the jail, and when at the jail, he
boasted of his nerve, assuring his brother
prisoners that' he would die game.
Notwithstanding Congress has been ad
journed more than five weeks, there still re:
main scores of office-seekers, 'commonly
known here as hangers-on. They have no
visible means of support. Hotel and board
ing-house mistresses suffer by their stay. It
13 a noticeable fact' that the majority of
these people are recognized on our streets
by our citizens ex-army Contractors or
sutlers, whona our poor soldier boys de
nominated land sharks. They claim to have
done good service for the Republican party
during the past campaign. They went on
excursions, to horse races, sang Grant and
Wilson songs, : bet on .Grant and Wilson
- winning in thn contest, (although not hay

fine, they were the patriotic individuals who
made it a point to swell every political meet
ing within pie scope of 4heir dend-beat
transportation range. Snail are many of
the men who are now-worrying the very life
out of the President for office. Mark you,
if they don't succeed in their untiring ef

It is expected that there wilt be a full
meeting of the Transportation Committee
op Thursday next. The - . committee will
confer with the 'Postmaster General as to
the best course to pursue in reference to the
postal-car difficulty; and further than that
it is thought no definite conclusion will be
reached. There seems at the Post Office
Department but little doubt of the willing
ness of the railroads to continue the run
ning of the postal-cars until Congress shall
meet and have time to properly consider the
report the committee will have made.
The April report of the Agricultural De: 1
partment,will b 2 largely devoted to the slis-
cases of farm animals. Mr. Dodge, the sta
tistician, fixed his face like a flint, and de-
termined at all hazards to send his matter
to the printer by the 10tb, but the materials
have comp in so copious and important that
it cannot be rushed through without 'leg--
lecting important points. It will probably
be through the press by the 20th. It will
show that cattle, sheep, and' hogs during
1871, in all parts of the country, enjoyed a
remarkable exemption from disease; and
horses, with the exception of the terrible
epizooty, also enjoyed a good degree of
health. That malady appears, like Aaron's
rod swallowing those of the magicians, to
have absorbed every ordinary horse ailment.
The aggregate losses by this disease, ho•,v
ever, are not over three or four per cent.

No special demonstrations are heard of
lately in regard to civil service reform. The
feeling appears to be gaining ground that
the methods of examination adopted in sev
eral of the Departments is not such as to
honestly test the ability and.qualifications of
the applicants. In the War Department espe
cially it has been grossly manipulated for the
purpose of breaking down parties whom it
was intended should not pass, and for bol
stering up predestined favorites, relatives of
parties high in office, who are to fatten upon
the public crib ad inflaittint. The examin
ing board of the Treasury is an exception
to the above censure, as under the manage
ment of its young chief, Mr. Eicholtz, it has
commended itself for general fairness. Last
week 550 applicants were examined in one
batch for about one-ten At that number of
positions. Some of them, .of course, are
not happy.

The late advises of the Department of
Agriculture indicate that the epizooty is
just manifesting itself in earnest along the
Paiifie coast; but in the mild and -equable
air of that region its manifestations are com
paratively mild. At several points in Mon
tana and Idaho it had just appeared; and its
introduction was attributed to the overland
° stage companies, whose horses were the
I first attacked. The disease is now passing
through Mexico in a general southwestern
course. All the indications are that it is
but moderately contagious, and that it is
mainly propagated by generic or atmospheric
influences. A similar affection appeared
among the horses of southern Africa in 1854
The Agricultural Museum of this city is
one of the most interesting places a stranger
visits on coming to Washington. On enter
ing the museum he will behold an oil paint:-
ing of President Grant (when he was a Gen
eral) and his staff, each picture being a cor
rect delineation of the original. \ The mu
seum is full of the natural and industrial
products not only of our own country but
of others, properly arranged in their re
spective order, and generally inclosed in
nicely finished cases. In these selections
are found hundreds of specimens of wood
from every clime. To the woos engraver,
the model maker; and others who work in
wood, it must be exceedingly interesting,
there being almost endless varieties of wood,
many kinds not found in out markets, and
for ornamental beauty exceling any your
correspondent has ever seen out of that De

riosities, one would hardly know where to
begin and*when to leave off. A contribu
tion from Fort Kearney just comes to mind.

specimen of bread or pudding made of
bark, used both by the Indians and natives
of Alaska. -

Titer were apparent reasons for believing

would be controlled by influences which

among those who'had aided in his election.
Since that time we have closely observed
his course, with no prepossession in his fa

giv6 him the benefit of positive doubts.
But how, judging him strictly by the rec
ord, we must in justice declare that thus
far, although subjected to extraordinary
pressure, he has acted with independence,
and with`an eye single to the best interests
of the Commonwealth; that lie has shown
himself uncontrolled by rings or cliques;
and beyond the reach of unworthy influ
ences; that, in short; he has demonstrated
the honesty of his purposes with an empha

banishes distrust, which disarms prejudice,
and which wins applause even from his
most intolerant political opponents. So far
as we can now judge of his policy, he seems
justly entitled to the Rontidence of the peo

A Horrible Affair.
[Special Dispatch to the lie* Yoik Vines ]
New Orleans, April 15.—Intelligence has
just reached this city to the effect that a ter
rible and sanguinary riot occurred on Sun
day last in Grant parish, in the county of
that name. The disturbance grew out of
the increasing animosity which has existed
between the negroes
,of Grant parish and
the :whites of Rapides parish, cut color
predominating in their respective localities.
All day the two factions quarrreled at the
court house in the village of Colfax, and
the riot finally culminated int he courthouse
being set on lire by the whites and burned
to the ground, together with from two to
three hundred negroes, who were unableAq,
escape from the burning building. The un-'
fortunate colored men were literally roasted
alive in the sight of their enemies.
Of all the whites who were engaged in
the fight, there were only two or three who
were killed or wounded, owing to 'the fact
that very few of the negroes were in pos
session of arms or weapons.
The details of this sanguinary riot are
quite shocking, and the news has created
intense excitement throughout the city. It
is understood that the United States author
ities intend making a thorough. investiga
tion into the affair, for the purpose of se
curing the punishment of the guilty parties,
whoever they may be.
The war between the races, so constantly
carried on in this distracted State, has sel
dom presented such a horrifying instance
as this burning of a court house filled with
human beings. It is scarcely credible, but
the news is unfortunately too true for' the
reputation of our people.
, [Dispatch to the Associated Press.]
Orleans, April! 15.—The ,steamboat
Southwestern, which arrived: at about 1:20
p. m. today, brings stirring and important
news from Grant parish. The whites have
retaken Colfax, and there is not a negro to
be found for miles around. Prom passen
gers on th Southwestern we glean the fol
The ncgroes had strongly entrenched
themselves in the court house and built
breastworks three and fakir feet high. There
were, it is ibid, about 400 men, armed and
equipped thoroughly. On Sunday, at about
12 o'clock, about 150 men, who had gather
ed from the surrounding parishes, made an
attack on the breastworks, and a brisk fight
was kept up until somewhere near 8 o'clock.
The breastworks were then stormed and
captured, the negroes taking - refuge in the
court house, the doors of which were barri
caded. After some further fighting , the ne
groes threw out a flag of truce, and several
detachments of men advanced on it, when
they were fired on by the besieged party,
wounding several, one of whom was ,Capt.
'llodnot, who was shot in the abdomen, and
it is feared fatally wounded. They retreat
ed on the outside of the breastworks, and,
as the only means of dislodging the negroes,
the court house was set on fire, and they
were shot as they came from the burning
building. -
It is reported that between 80 and 100 ne
groes were killed, and that there were none
afterward to be found for miles around.
The captain of the steamboat Southwest
ern makes the following statement: "We
arrived at Colfax Sunday evening about 8
o'clock, and found that the white people and
the Sheriff (at their head, I suppose) had
captured the town after having had a con
flict with the negroes. It was reported to
me that about 100 negrdes had been killed
and many wounded. We - saw from our
boat about fifteen or twenty lying around
on the banks dead. One white man was re
ported killed, and two very seriously woun
ded. Three or four other white men were
slightly wounded. A hotit 101). negroes
caged, but it was reported that. the wintea'
were still pursuing them. All the leaders of
the riot escaped. The negroes ambusoaded
themselves in the court house. The whites
finding there was no other mode of attack
left them, set fire to the building. They
numbered in the neighborhood of 150 men.
The whites are now in possession of Col-'
fax, and when I left late on Sunday night
everything was quiet."
—By an act of Congress passed last winter
the mode of collecting the internal revenue
taxes imposed on dealers in liquor andlobaceo
is to be changed on the first of next month .
Circular No. 100 recently 'issued by Com
missioner Douglass fully explains the opera
tion of the law. We quote below all that por
tion of the circular which is of special interest
to dealers, and it will be well for all con
cerned to cut this out and preserve it, as'a
strict compliance with the law may save
much vexation and trouble: "-%

vato letter from Mies C. H. Efannum, teacher of elo
cution at the Female College, Elmira, N. Y., to Miss
H. W. Todd of this place: .
e * * I wish to tell you something of our teacher
in' Elocution. Prof. McAfferty, from Racine College,
Wis., came hero. about two months ago and dye us a
rfatling., About thirty of the young ladies formed a
class and be gave them one course of lessons. I like
his system very much, and,derived
,a great deal of
benefit from his drill: Miss S— [a teacher of music)
thinks his system of great value to singers, and that
she improved very much in the use and somewhat in
compass of voice under his instruction. His imita
tions are remarkably fine. Bis own voice is remarka
ble for compass, (being five octaves), flexibility, power
and purity of tone, etc. You must hear him and
judge for yourself. A course of lessons you would
enjoy and so would your friends.
The following communication will interest
the guardians and friends of the children of
the dead soldiers and sailors of this State:
Mansfield, 'Eva Cbunty, Pa.,
April 7, 1873.
Mr. Editor : The State has made ample
provisions for the education and maintenance
of the children of the dead soldiers and sail
ors of this State. Mothers and guardians
who desire,to get children into these schools
should make immediate application for their
admission. The State authorities are ex
tremely anxious that these provisions should
extend to, the children of every deserving
soldier in the State. To those who know_of
children in their localities that ought to be
in these schools, let me suggest that you in
form those having them in charge that an
immediate application will be promptly at
tended to. Blank forms for application may
be had at our school.
This statement is Made in view of the fact,
that many applications from this and adjoin
ing countics,'a few years since, remained on
file for years, awaiting funds to admit therii.
