F. II. Yagtr were going up to Cedar Is
land with wagons to get young cedar
trees to set out on their farms. As they
were going down the hill at. Simpson'
mill they saw Van Amburgh's caravan
coming down the hill on the opposite
side of the creek, and so they turned out
of the road and Mopped. Mr. Foote
and Mr- Birch were in a buggy together

horses, while the former sat in the buggy
and hell the lines-. This was the situa

whiiled, carrying Mr. Birch forward and
throwing Mr. Foote out over the dash
board so that he struck on his face and
head in the road down the hill, while the
horse ran away and fetched up against a
fence some distance farther down.
Mr. Foote's nose end upper lip were
badly lacerated, ami ga? lies were made in

Uod Advice t 1j ict icsi.
If a man wants to get rid of dyspep
sia, he must give his stomach and brain
less to do. It will be of no service for
him to follow any particular regimen
to live on chaff bread, or any such stuff,
to weigh his food, etc., so long as the
lrain is in a constant state of excitement.
Let them have proper rest, and the
stomach will perform its functions. But
if he pass fourteen or fifteen hours a day
in his oSice or counting room, and takes
no exercise, his stomach wid inevitably
become paralyzed, and if he puts noth
ing into it but a cracker a day, it will not
digest it. In many cases it is the brain

Public feeling in New Brunswick still
runs high against the treaty. In the
Legislative Assembly, the Attorney
General moved a series of resolutions in
opposition to the treaty. A hope is ex
pressed that the Canadian Parliament
will not ratify the treaty, but will still
carry out its policy of protecting the fish
eiies. The Attorney General delivered
a long and able speech in support of his
resolutions. lie indignantly repelled the
idea that the Province would be forced
into annexation by the treaty, and said
of the mother country : "'J'houghshe
should slay me, yet will I trust her."
There is no doubt the resolutions will
pass both houses without a dissenting
voice. The fishermen at Bay of Fuinly
;re alarmed and indignant. Steps are
being taken for holding a public meeting.
Intelligence from Nova S.otia and Prince

Fight Willi Indian.
Helena, Montana, May 10.
Three mail carriers between Muscle
Shell and Fort Benton, Montana, were
attacked on the lUth hist, by a band of
Indians, numbering about forty-five, ten
miles liom Fort H:wley, and a despe
rate fight ensued. The men, who were
armed with Spencer and Winchester ri
fles, retreated into a thicket of willows
and maintained a rapid fire, with telling
effect, upon the Indians. One man,
named Joe Lee, was killed, and the oth
er two, named Williams and Denton,
wounded, but succeeded in crossing the
river on a log, and reaching a place of
safety. A party of men who visited the
field a few days after found and buried
Lee. The bodies of five Indians were
found and signs that as many more dead
had been carried off, besides the wound
ed, which numbe.ed at least lwenty. It
is believed that tkey belonged to the
Teton band of the Sioux, which band
numbers about six hundred lodges and
are regarded as being extremely hostile,
even including in their vengeance any
Sioux who trade with the whites.
