Mr. Cooper's advanced age was a great
drawback to his recovery. About two

Hewitt, his daughter, a i 1 !i ': fi-iriy t:

THE NEW POSTMASTER GENERAL.
"Washington, April 4. The presi
dent leaves for Jacksonville at noon
tomorrow. Judge Gresharn has ac
cepted the appointment of postmaster
Evansville, Ind., April 4. Judge
"Walter Q. Gresharnwho was appoint
ed postmaster general, is in the city,
holding court. A reporter of the As
sociated Press visited him this after
noon, and in answer to a question
whether he intended to accept the
nomination or not, he said that he bad
just notified tbe president and secre
tary of state he would accept, but that
his duties here would detain him un
til Saturday of this week, and that he
could not reach Washington until the
middle of the coming week. Judge
Gersham said the appointment was
unsolicited, and - entirely unexpect
ed. He received notice of the appoint
ment early this morning, the secretary
of State informing him that his com
mission had been signed yesterday.
The appointment gives very general
satisfaction in this state, where Judgo
Gresham is honored and respected by
every one and standi at the very head
of the judiciary. IL received the con
gratulations of prominent people of
IIHIKF SKKTCH OF HIS I.I Hi.
.lodge Oresham was Lorn in Harri
son county, Indiana, iu 132, and edu
cated in his own State. After gradu
ating iu the Indiana statu university
in llloomiiigtou, he studied law, and
soon afterward began practice in Cory
den, county seat of Hariison, and was
from the lirst successful as a lawyer.
He took an active part in the politics
of the state and shortly before the out
break of tlie war wan elected repre
sentative to the state legislature. In
1S01 he was chairman of the house
committee on military affairs, and
while occupying thi.j position ho co
operated so skillfully with Gov. Mor
ton in the organization of the state
militia, and iu raising aud forward
ing troops, that Morton commissioned
him as colonel of the Thirty-eighth
regiment, Indiana volunteers, and was
promoted to colonel of Third division
iu IsGl', and brigadier general of vol
unteers in 18G3. He participated in
the sieges of Corinth, Jackson, Miss.,
and capture of Vicksburg. He was
brevetted major general lor distin
guished gallantry in 1804, and in July
of the same year was severely wound
ed before Atlanta, and was mustered
out of service. In April, I860, he en
tered into partnership with Judge
Uutler, of New Albauy. Ind., and re
sumed the practice of law in that city.
When Grant became president lie ap
pointed Grrshain district jude for the
district, which position ho still holds.
He was strongly urged for a place in
Garfield's cabinet, and there is reason
to believe that the representations of
his friends in his behalf was regarded
with much favor. .
The president has designated First
Assistant Postmaster General Ilatton
to act as postmaster general for n
period of ten days, beginning to-morrow,
until the arrival of Gresham.

Hon. Commissioner Indian Affairs,
Washington Sir: I am a friend of
tbe Great Father and am going in the
white man's way. I have noticed the
white men cutting wood, and I thought
I would be like a white man clioj
some wood for my wife. A piece of
wood flew up and put out w.y right
eye, and now I would like the Great
Father to send me another eye. I can
have it put in here. I have always
been a friend of the white man, and
an bringing up my children in the
white man's ways. I am getting old
and wish my father would send me a
cane. When you send me the eye,
please send me a brown one, aa that is
the color of my other eye. I hope the
Great Father will do as I ask. I shake
hands with a good heart. Your friend,
Signed Blue Heron.
