The Indian War In Minnesota.
We find in the St. Paul papers of
the 27th ultimo the following reports
of hostile Indian movements in Min
nesota. Another Indian war seems
almost inevitable in that State. The
Pioneer says :
"We 1 earn that official information
has been received of the arrival at Ft.
Abercrombie, on the 19th inst., of
Joseph Demereis, a son of the' inter
preter now at that post. lie came
from St. Joseph by way of Devil's
Lake, leaving Devil's Lake on the 9th
instant, where he reports there were
encamped about six hundred teepees
of Indians, or about eighteen' hundred
warriors, with Little Crow at their
head. They are encamped on the
prairie near the timber, and near a
peninsula that runs down into the lake
on the north side, in the' vicinity of
Burnt Island, which is the place of ren
dezvous of tho hostile Sioux, He
states that Little Crow's band are
well supplied with ammunition, and
that the others have none. Little
and his soldiers have been assiduously
engaged in circulating the report that
all those who gave themselves up last
fall were killed by the whites, and by
this means is trying to induce them to
engage in a war against the whites.
"Standing Buffalo has gone on a
mission to Governor Dallas, to see if
he would allow him to come under his
protection, as he don't want to be en
gaged against the whites, and is fear-
ul that he pay be made to suffer with
the rest. A large portion of the In
dians are anxious for peace, but are
fearful if they give themselves up they
will be killed, and are therefore wait-
ins the return of Standing Buffalo
before deciding. Little Crow and his
band seem determined to carry on the
war to the bitter end. Ihey had
made no decision when Mr. Demereis
eft in what manner the war is to be
carried on, but the Indians generally
express their determination to await
the arrival of the whites and fight
"Mr. Demereis also reports that
Rattling Moccasin, with about forty
lodges of seventy warriors, is en
camped on the Shayenne river, about
twenty-five miles from Abercrombie,
but that he is soon going to join the
rest at Devil s Lake. A portion ot
the band wintered near the mouth ot
the Chippewa, and a portion on the
lellow Medicine nver. Mr. Demeris
also reports that the Indians have
plenty of dried meat, and that there
are large numbers of buffaloes on the
The same paper publishes the fol
lowing in reference to the discovery
of Indians at another point :
"We learu tlu . cavalry detach
ment sent out under command of Maj.
Markham in pursuit of the Indians
near New Ulm, after tracking them
over the Cottonwood river in the di
rection of Lake Shetek, on the 21st,
about dark, came up with a party of
Indians, but Cant. Vanduser, com
manding the detachment, being unable
to ascertain the number of the savages
on account of the darkness, thought
it prudent to fall back and await rein
forcements, which were sent out on
receipt of his dispatch, but with what
result we have not learned. A lar2e
number of Indians have been seen
belowMilford, in the direction of New
Ulm. Settlers around New Ulm are
coming into town, and many are going
away. Many settlers in Niccolet
county are also preparing to leave, and
some have gone already."
"Johny, get your dictionary, and tell
me what the word Democrat ' means,"
said an old Vallandighammer to his
The son complied, and soon read as
"Democrat, n, One vyhojadheres to'a
government by the people, or favors the
extension of the right of suffrage to all
classes of men."
"Hold on, John ; does it say all Mass
es of men ?"
"Who's the maker of the dictionary ?"
"Oh, that blasted old Whig ! I always
thought he was sort of favoring the
niggers! Johnny, you needn't read that
dictionary any more. I'ii see about get

assure the world that General McClellan
was ihe only man they were afraid of
the only Yankee General whom they
thought to be possessed of any gensus.
These opinion were often cited by
General McClellan's admirers, Now,
however, ,when this officer is displaced

"THE LATE GEORGE B. m'cLELLAIT.
4Youn Nepoleon is dead dead be
yond resurrection. In the flesh he may
still walk the eanh.but in spirit, in pow
er, in the hope of glory he is defunct.
It is a noteworthy fact that the ulaloos
and hulabaloos over this person have
ceased in Yankeeland. ; For two or three
months after his dismissel he was the
pet object of Democratic sympathy and
conservative sympathy; but now even
Beast Butler has grander ovations than
he. His name is seldom heard among
men. He is no more.
"A review of his career from the time
he claimed Rosecran's laurels in the
little affair a Rich Mountain down to the
battle of Antietam, would be instructive
to the nation of liars who accepted him
at his own lying valuation, and discarded
because his falsehoods, gigantic- as they
were, produced no visible impression
upon the Rebellion. It might also profit
the Confederacy to trace in the career of
this braggart the overruling power which
has neverfailed to darken the counsels of
be wicked and to cause all things to
work together for good in behalf of the
just cause. JNotuing is easier to provo
than that the elevation of JYlcLIellan to
the position of Commander-in-Chief of the
Yankee army was all that was needed
after the election of Lincoln, to insure
our independence. The recital of a few
facts will show how greatly we are in
debted to him.
"In October, 1S61, he had 180.000
men and the most overwhelming array of
field artillery that had ever been seen
upon this contiuent. Before him was an
army .of 40,000 Confederates, occupying
Mason's and Blunson' Hill, and defiant
ly daring him th come out of his fortifi
cations. The roads were good and
weather splendid, he had but to advarx3
in force to gain an easy victory so, at
least, thought his master Lincoln. But
he knew his men were cowards, and he
was afraid of his reputation. He did
not want to fight ; he sought merely to
push us from one position to another by
dint of enormous numbers hence the
flank, movement by the way of Lees-
burg, which ended, so horribly, and be
mimed him with fright for three months.
"Driven by an imperative order to ad
vance again, in spite of the winter mud,
he entered the entrenched camp at Man
assas onlv to find it a mass of surround-
He shipped round to the Peninsula,
taking 112,000 men with him. Magru
der opposed him with but 7,000 men,
kept him in check and forced him to the
use ol the spade and pick his favorite
tteaponi. He mode seige, and in due
time occupied aur deserted lines. The
battle of Williamsburg followed. His
advance was whipped by Johnson's rear
guard, but owing paatly to the ignorance
of the country and to the bad handling
of some of our troops he was enabled to
gain enough advantage on one wing to
put some conciet into his men. He ac
knowledged, however, at one time it
looked as if the Bull Run rout would be
"After this battle an event occurred
which has been forgotten, but deserves
to be recalled. A Confederate Surgeoa,
left in charge of the wounded, told McCl
ellan that his gunboats might possibly
reach Richmond, but that his infantry
never would. The little Napoleon smil
ed, as if in pity of the Surgeon's igno
ranee. The Surgeon told him further,
that the Abolitionists were making a
tool of him, and that they would throw
him aside, proclaim a general emanci
ration of negroes, and put an Aboliticn-
ist in his place. McClellan replied.
.That he was in no fear of the Abolition
ists as long as he had- command of that
army.' 'But.' he added, 'if they do
throw me aside and set the negroes free.
I shall go to Europe, and cease to have
anything to do with this war.
"How literally have the Surgeon's pre
dictions have deen fulfilled ! McClellan
has been kicked out of office: the in
surrection proclamation has been issued :
Hooker, a pure-blooded Abolitionist, has
command of the Army of the Potomac ;
anb it has not been two weeks since
McClellan, in a public speech, urged the
people to sustain Lincoln. How debased
the creature is ! Why is he not in Europe,
and why does he longer live here, ' ex
cept in hopes of a new appointment
rnder the Abolition despotism.
"Space will not permit us to follow
Young Napoleon through the narrative
of his career. Tbe Yankees might have
taken Richmond after the Battle of Seven
Pines, when our forces were in confusion.
After the battle of Hanover Court-House
he might have dene the same thing.
After the battle of Antietam the same.
The criterion of true' beauty is that it
increases on exarninatien ; that of false,
ihat.it' lessens. There is something,
therefore in true beauty that coresponds
witn right reason, and is not merely the
creature of fancy. .
Tbe river is rising rapidly.
From the Hannibal Courier, May 30
Several days since .three negroes
a man and his wife and her brother
made their escape from Shelby county,
ar.d arriving in this city, crossed the
river and enterd Illinois, intending to
mike their way to ( Quincy. '. Whe'n
alout ten mile3 out they were confronted
by two white men, one of whome presen
ted a doublebarreled shot gun at their
breasts, and commanded them to run. The
woman's brother accordingly started to
rim, when the white scoundrels fired at
him, and he was seen to fall. The vil
lain then turned and discharged the
oiher barrel at the husband, who was
currying in his. arms an- infant two
months old. The scattering shot woun
ded both the father and child, striking
the latter in the shoulders and neck, and
the former in the netk and leg, These
fiends then orderd them .at once to re
turn to Missouri. Though severly woun
ded the man and his wife mada their way
back to Douglasville, (opposite this city)
where they were properly taken care of,
and the wounds dressed. The other ne
gro has not been heard from, and it was
supposed he was killed. The wounds of
the father and child, though serious, are
not likley to prove fatal.
We venture that these devils were
" Democrats " consevative men "
"Union "lovers" and Vallandighamers
tif the most approved stripe. Such man
ifestations of principles could not have em
anated from any other class of men.
These are the men who" entertain such
fervent affection towards the. "wayward
sisters." ' and lovingly desire to have
them depart in peace. The Devil dearly
loves all these well approved "Democrats."
A Pig 3Iistake.
A merchant, whose articulation had a
decided tendency in the direction of a
lisp, engaged a clerk who was not aware
of this vocal peculiarity.
"John," said the merchant, who
wished to lay in his winter stock of pork,
"go out and buy me two or three thows
"Yes, sir," said John, mutch elated at
John returned, late at night, looking as
though he had preformed a hard day's

"Eight hundred ! eight hundrded what,

"Eight hundred pigs," was the repl7.
"You told me to buy two or three thou
sand pigs ; but they could not be found.'
Two or three thousand mgs 1 I did
not tell you to do any such thvped thing.
I thaid you should buy two or three thows
and pigs " exclaimed the merchant.
"That s just what 1 said, answered
the clerk. "Two or three thousand pigs ;
I bought all I could find."
The merchant now began to see the
origin of the mistake. It was apparent
ly a costly joke ; but their was no rem
Marching Ok.- A sable stream of
contrabands has been flowing inte this
city and neighborhood, for the last few
weeks, principally from Boone and Call
away counties. Saturday and Sunday
nights appear to be the most favored
time for their travel, and as many as
fifty have crossed the Missouri river of
a night. Some of their owners have fol
lowed them to tbe city to attempt their
recovery, but with what success we have
not learned. One getlemam living in
Callaway, Major Adams, has lost all he
had. some 17 in number; among them
was an old cripple, who had been unable
to work for years, but he managed to
crawl to the river and escape with the
others. About thirty also escaped from
Cooper county last week, a number of
them passing tirough this county.
