Extracts from akntcr Sated Fort v ancouver,
Wasliington Territory, April 1st 1836. St.
Louis Republican.
For the past six rr.orjtbs tho clouds have
Leon thickening around us and in almost all our
attempts to brighten matters, our enemies have
come ol Gr&t best. From JJaller's defeat up
to the last masterly strokes, enacted a few miles
above this post, the Indians certainly have
Lad the better of us.
It became necessary, a few months since, to
apply to the authorities at Washington for ad
ditional troops and they, were promptly grant
ed. The Oth Infantry came to this post, when
Cnl. Wright was invested with full powers to
conduct the campaign
gainst
t the Indians.'
Fc'.'tv Utiles above this place the river cavita
tion ceases, and over frve miles, the falls and
rapids of tharlrtr, all stores have to be trans
ported, in part, ly small boats, cordelled, and
the balance cf the way, about a mile and a
half, by a woolen Railway; tho small cars
carving about a ton of freight: b :r :r drawn by
mule und hand rower. At the lower end of
this Railroad a I) lock IIcu:ew.is constructed
in October hist, which has, pro identially been
Ihe means vf saving many valuable lives.
This portage of five miles is one of the strong
est places that I have ever seen, once in pos
f . :.on of the enemy and all supplies to the
r.rcr country, Fort Dallas, Walla Wa'la, &c,
c, must cease, Uesides this, trom tne Eature
cf the srou'd, the party having possession
must have i::y.ner.se advantage over those at
tempting to dislodge them. In a military point
.of view it, therefore, is necessary to hold thi3
place, or of what use are our river steamers to
. tn on either tide, or how is the army, about to
t-V- t' ? cld, i j be supplied with tb-ir JalJy
"1. , : . Rumor , upon rumor ,1.3 1 reached us
thai Ue Indians intended to h:Id this place,
so soon as the troops all got pa? and n route
for the Walla Walla country, and that they
intended to burn the steamers, after which they
would make a descent upon 1 ort Vancouver,
the great depot of ammunition and supplies of
li kinds. . All these were laughed 'at by the
knowing ones. ."The idea of these miserable
' half clad, half fed . creatures' attacking the
jxDrtage is preposterous ! Have we not a Block i
IIousheld by a Serjeant and einJit men about
rnid way on this formidable bug-bear ?" .
.As before remarked, Col. Wright was 5ri
tjusted with the management of affairs in .this
rt;ion. Lieut. Col. Casey, with two companies
or. theOtb, having been ordered bv Gen, Wool,
to Tcget Sound, The Colonel went to .work
.with a will and got things in readiness, in the
shortest possible time, to take the field. Hia
disposition of the forces was as follows :
One company of the 9th and one of the 4th
Infantry at Fort Vancouver. One of the 9th
at the portage, ilie Cascades of t?ie Colunibia.
One company of the 4th at Fort Dallas. One
at the Indian reservation, sixty miles South of
the Dallas and the balance six companies of
the 9th, one cf Artillery and one of Dragoons
disposable for service in the field, with himself
' at their head.- In the meantime the mail
steamer arrives, having on board the General
commanding, and it was necessary and proper
to take the company of the 9th, destined for
the Btror ghold at the Cascades and the one
ordered to remain here with him, to Puget
Sound. What are the" consequences? CoL
Wright leaves the Dallas with his command ;
the Indians wait until they think that he has a

Lieut. Sheridan repaired to the relief of

obliged to withdraw to the opposite side of the
river, and send tne steamer down for addition

one, ana they in position disputing every foot

had been captured, and no chance, in conse
quence, for reinforcements from the Dallas.
The timely arrival of the recruits, per Columbia,
enabled the commanding officer to spare twenty-nine
men- to the assistance of Lieut. Sheri
dan. They started at 2 o'clock, p. m., and
reached his camp at 10 r. m., the night exceed
ingly dark and rainy. The men were loaded
and ready to jump on shore the instant the
boat touched the land. We reared the bank
slowly, hailing and received "for answer that
the Cascades had been re-taken from the
Indians by a large command under Colonel
Wright, and the detachment under Lieutenant
Sheridan. Those of us who were about to

of the Brazos River, and if we are not almost
scared out of our senses, we don't know our

Who Owss 'em ? We notice a large num
ber of boys wandering about the city, who we
suppose must be lost. They are lor tne most
part very well dressed, wearing long coats, tight
pantaloons, shiny nats and boots, and generally
carry small canes in their kid gloved hands.
From the manner in which they stare at the
ladies who pass them, we infer that they are
trying to find their mothers. Why don't our
charitable citizens get up an asylum for these
poor children ? It is a shame to allow them
to be wandering about the city by themselves
in this manner. Thev are muchmore.fit to be
in the nursery. The kind-hearted keepers of
taverns and billiard saloons, allow them i
refuge in their establishment, and most charit
ably supply them with segars and adulterated
liquors. At all houre of tho day and eight
these unfortunates crowd beneath their hospit
able roofs. Parents in search of their sons wil
hear of them by paying these places a visit.

Extraordinary Hail Stobil An unusual
hail storm occurred at Auburn, Ala., on tho
14th inst, ' A writer in the Montgomery Mail,
says:
"The size of the stones varied from as small
as a pea to as large as a lemon. The large
ones were mostly of the shape of an oblate
spheroid. I measured one of ordinary size,
and found it eight inches latitudinally, and
seven inches longitudinally. The prevailing
size was that of a guinea egg, w hile tho shape
varied greatly. I -found plenty that would
weigh four ounces."

IMPORTANT TO FARMERS.
Walieia'gAHand Corn-Planter.
rpHE Western Corn Planter Company, havinsrcom
X plcted their arrangements for Manufacturing
valuable Labor-Saving Imrdcmo&t-
them to the Farmers of the West, in the full confi
dence that IJiey will at once supply a want long felt
by all, for a irabstitute to the old laborious, alow, and
expensive methods of planting with a hoe. Tho ob
jections heretofore made to Corn Planters, are, in
akefield invention, entirely obviated: their sim
plicity, accuracy, cheapness, and durability, wilKal
once recommend them toall Farmers. It is carried
and used as a cane or walking stick, requirinff no de
lay or additional motion or effort is. adapted for
planting in rocKy ana uneven ground, ana in all kinds
of soil is easily adjusted to plant at any desired
depth, and to drop any required number of seees in a
mil.
The method hy which the seed is planted with this
Planter is new, and, it is believed, possesses advan
tages over every other, not only! in facility of use,but
in hastening germination. The seed is forced, by
pressure, obliquely 'from the surface of the ground
to the required depth, thus insuring the immediate
absorbtiou f moisture, by bringing it into perfect
and hard contact with the soil, under and around it,
while the earth faffing loosely over, cannot abstract
the coming up and growth of the blade.
The economy of using this Planter, that will more
than pay for itself if only wanted to plant in a com
mon garden is apparent to all
"Persons wishing to purchase Planters or
Righta, may obtain further information by address
ing Western Corn Planter's Co. office, No. 84 Main
street, between Olive and Locust streets, St. Louis,
Missouri. T. SMITH, Agent.
