Mr. II. B. Dexter Sir: Two
young men are now here, from Kearney
Junction, who report that Mr. Grant, a
man appointed to appraise the school
bind in this county, being over on the
Loup river, on Saturday lat, went to a
trapper's camp and found a man dead in
it. Supposing it to be the woik of In
dians, he immediately left, arriving at
the Junction at G o'clot-k in the evening.
Oa Sunday rucrnin, twelve men, armed
and eqipped, rode to the phej and found
Frnk Ilildebrand lying in the camp
with three ball holes through him, two

made by a discharge of buckshot. On
searching around, they found - Richard
Bell, about twenty yards from the camp
with one revolver shot through him and
one Ducksiiot uiscnarce, a:so Having his
brains knocked out, supposed to hive
been done with a batc-het. Eugene
Leak was not there, neither has he yet

they left here three rifles and three shot
guns. Tho rifles were gone, but th
shot guns were in the camp with all
their camp cquippage. Their breakfast
was about ready but untouched. Bill

Dear 6?V .Tl.e yOmaha Hvraid
has, oa several occascr made false and
unjust reference to tho "Suid ll'dlt f
Fort Ke-trnev," terming ta-jra as cnly fit
for "ffopher holes," . and as being worth
less for the purpose . of Agriculture,
thereby di-couraging people from seitling
in this portion of Nebraska. ' -;
'Believing that you are cot unfriend
ly to this section of tho Sfate, and in-1
dined to do it justice, I bve been
prompted to send you this communica
tion for the purpose of dispelling any
erroneous impression that may exist,
relative to the country ia the vicinity of
old Fort Kearnty.
For three years past "Wni. A: Mitchell,
one of our merchants, has had a farm
under cultivation, in the midst of these
Kearney "Sand Hills" about three miles
southwest of Centoria. Ia 1S71 Mr.
MLdiel and Mr. R. Sydenlam planted
tho ground oa shares together. That
year the crop was planted about the first
of June, and was left there without "any
cultivation whatever, the result being -a
crop of excellent corn ia the fall.
Specimens of this corn was sent to some
of the leading editors of Nebraska, at
the time, and were very favorably com
mented on. Specimens were also taken
east by the prominent ofiieials of the
Burlington & Missouri Railroad Com
pany for exhibition.
Some persons have an impression that
no grain cr.n be grown in this region of
sllphtly hilly country, termed "Sand
Hill.f I have purchased a half bush
el of corn from Mr. Michel, of his last
years' crops, taken promiscously from
his corn bin, to send off as specimens;
Much largers cars have bocn found by
picking over bis corn. I send you some
of those ears for your examination, and
thiuk you will concclaui that the "Sand
Hills" of Fort Ksarney xcill produce
crain, and that too, abundantly. From
those who gathered the crop 1 learn
that the product per acre will average
about 40 bushels, and the quality cannot
be excelled. If you d .era this matir
worthy of comment, ple3?e give the pub
lic your opinion of this corri, and great
ly oblige tha people cf thi3 neighbor

From the Lincoln dailies we get the
full particulars, as far as learned, of the
murder, on Sunday last, of N. M. Burn
ton, a book binder, who was employed
in the book bindery of A. J. Cropsey k
The body was first discovered by Col.
J. F. Martin and W. B. Chambers who
went into Graham's saloon, between
seven and eight o'clock, where they dis
covered the deceased lying on the floor,
his face and hair covered with blood,
and blood in considerable quantities on
the floor. Collin, the bar keeper, was
there, and seemed intoxicated, and like
a man whose senses were gone. They
then left and did not say anything about
it, leaving it to some one else to make it
About eight o'clock, Graham, tho
proprietor cf the saloon, came in and
found the blood on the floor near the
door and scattered in places, also a laaa's
hat. The barkeeper, Collins, and anoth
er man, a stranger, afterwards ascer
tained to be named Poulson, ha found
asleep in an inner room, and he could
not wakfj Collius up. Then went to
olean the blo d from the floor, and hav
ing used the water, opened tha back
door to got more, anl discovered the
body lying in the :i!l?y with clothing de
ranged as if it had been dragged along
He went for a policeman and brought
on3 named Shea, and another went for
the Coroner and Marshal.
Collins, and the stranger, Andrew
Poulson, sleeping with him, were arrett
ed. A small Smith & Wesson seven
shooter was found ia the saloon, with
all the chambers but one loaded.
Th? wound, by which deceased came
to his death, is a pistol wound in temple
bone abov temple. The ball extracted
is small and of an oblong shape. A
watch was found in a cupboard in the
rear of the bar, which was identified as
belonging to the prisoner, and which
Graham identified as one given him by
Collin?, when hj asked for the key of
Testimony of various witnesses show
that the deceased was in a saloon kept
by Thomas Noonan, about three o'clock
Sunday morning, and had a a altercation
with Ndonan and a man named Sclio
field, in which Noonan struck deceased
several times with a bottle, although the
effect seems to have been comparatively
slight no blood being shed. He after
war is went to Graham's saloon where
he was as late as half past five.
Policeman Shea testifies that tb pis.
tol in question Collin? lent him the even-
ing cetore, aau mat na returnea it to
Collins between six and seven. He also
testifies to" having seen deceased as be
left the saloon, dear there.
The jury found a verdict that N. M.
Burnton, deceased, came to his death
by a pistol shot from the hand of Col-
lins, and that the act was done feloniously,-
with intent to kill. "

Lava Bed April U, via Yreka 12.
Yesterday afternoiin live Indians and
four squaws came into camp and were
made presents of clothing and provisions
oy the peace commission, and a message
was sent out by the commission asking
for a tak thisl'orenOon t a point about a
mile froni our picket line. This forenoon
Boston Charley came in and told the
commissioners that Capt. Jack and five
other Indians would meet the commis
sion outside of our lines. Boston and
Bl3us then mounted a horse and started
for "the lava bed. About an hour after
their departure, General Cuby, Dr.
Thomas, Mr. A. B. Meacbam, and Mr.
Diar, with Frank Riddle and his squaw
for interpreter; started for the place ap
pointed. The pirry arrived at the ap
pointed juce, an I vore closely watcneu
by the signal officer, Lir.rit. Ad.iuK from
signal station on the hill overlooking our
camp. About half an hour after the
parry bad arrived; a cry from the signal
ftation was heard, saying that the In
dians had attacked tbe peace company,
and that an engaemco'i had commerced
between the Indians and Col. Mason.
In a moment tho troops wi? tinder arm s
and displayed as skirmishersi frider com
mand of Col. Green, and orur were
given to forward double quick. Very
shortly after, Mr. Diar returned inS old
Us that he was tho only one who t td
escatied. But in a few moments aft-
Riddle and h"s sauaw were seen within
tho picket line, From him we gather
the following accpunt of how. the mas
sacre commenced: , Me.chamj tnade a
short speech to the Indians followed by
Gen. Can by and then Dr. Thomas.
Then Capr. Jack made a speech, asking
for Hat Creek and Cottonwood, the
J laces now occupied by Faircbild and
)orris for a reservation. Mr. Meacbam
told Ja.-k that it was not possible to pive
bird what he asked. Schocbin told
Meacbam to say no more, that be (Mea
cbam) had said enough upon that sub
ject, and while Schohchin was speaking,
Capt. Jack got ilp" and walked behind
the other?, and turned back and ex
claimed "All ready." drew bis pistol and
snapped a cap at Gen. Canby, cocked
his pistol again and fired. Gen. Canby
fell dead-, shot under tho right eye.
Schonkin then shot Meacham id tha
shoulder and head, but he is still alive.
Boston Charley and another Indian shot
and killed Dr. Thomas. Hookeye Jim
chased Dyar for-sotue distance, but Dyar
turned upon h?m with pistol in hand and
Jim ran. An Indiau knocked Kiddle's
squaw and took her horse, but" Capt.
Jack made him return it and then an
other Indian chased Riddle and shot at
him. This last ruaybe taken with a
grain of alt. The troop" are now about
ii aile in tha ldva beds, lying on their
ar! and will probably advance tonight
undix;over of darkness. Th-re are hee
about CHM troops, which can be brought
into acti.ts service, and I relieve they
will end th4Modoc war. Mcachano is

Yreka. AprjMS 10 p, ni. The news
of the horrible massacre of Gen. Canby
and Commissioner v.Thoaias has cast a
plooni over the whole ; community, and
the excitmer.t is intense. A feeling
exists that tha Indians tbould now re
ceive the punish merit the-richly de
serve, an 1 that not ono shouki be left to
boast of this terrible njasa?re. .!;
II. C. Tick nor, who brought tbft ofS -cial
dispatches, left headquarters at 5
o'clock la-t dvening. Ho says orders hd
just bceri issued for fin advance along the
wh ile lina at 5 o'clock this uisniing.
The plan was to advanco slowly, -takitig
everything as they went, having water
and provisions with them. In this cae
it may be two days before the trouble is
ended. It i presumed that G;n. Can
ity's and Commissioner Thomas' remains
will be forwarded to this place, slmuH
tluy arrive to morrow soma time. All
ot hi r courier would leave headquarters
this evening, and Could arrive catly to
morrow. These .ire till the particulars
other than those telegraphed this after
noon. . .
A courier left hero at 9 o'clock to
night for Giilem's headquarters, with
dispatches from Gen. Schofield. By
many it is believed that the Modocs are
desperate, and will light till the last man
dies; that thev will not leave the lava
beds. By others it is thought that they
have already escaped from the lava beds,
and will couimeneo a relentless war on
all weak parties i hey tiny niet. It is
supposed that Sear Faced Charley and
Curley Headed Doc! or were among the.
Indians who attacked Col. Mason's posi
tion. That was a blind to attract the at
tention of Geo. Giileni from thecoiifer
ence between Jack and his followers.
General Crder Jto. S.
The following order was issued on tho
death of Gsn- Canby, to tho troops at
It again becomes the sad duty of the
GencTal to announce to tho army tho
death of one of our most illustrious and
most honored comrades. Brigadier Gen
eral Edward R. S. Canby, coin ui and iug
the Depaitnitnt of Columbia, was, on
Friday last, April 11, shot dead by Chief
Jack whiio iic was endeavoring to medi
ate- for ths removal cf the Modocs from
their present rocky fa:-th ess on the north
ern border of California to the reserva
tion, where the tribe could be maintain
ed and protected by civil netits of the
Government. That such a life should
have been sacriSeed in such a caUse will
ever be a source of regret to bis relatives
and friends'. Yet the General tmts
that nil good soldiers will bo consoled in
knowing that Genernl Canby lost his life
on duty and in the execution of Ids of
fice, for he had been especially choseu
and appointed for this delicate and dan
gerous trllst by reason of his well known
patience and forbearance, his entira self
abnegaticn and fidelity to tbe expressed
wishes of his Government, and his largo
experience in dealing with savage lu-
fdians-in America. Ho i ad already com
pleted the necessary military prepara
tions to force obedience to the eor.clu
sions of the Peace Commissioners, after
which he seems to have aeeompmied
them to a last conference with the savage
chiefs jn supposed friendly council, and
there met hi3 death by treachery, out
side his military linos but within View of
his signal station. At the same time
one of the Peace Commissioners Was
killed outright and another was uiortally
wounded, snd a third escaped unhurt.
Thus perished one of the kindest and
best gentlemen of this or any other counj
try, tvhose social equaled his military
virtues. To even sketch Lis army his
tory would pass the limits of a general
order, and it must hero sufiice that Gen
eral Canby began bis uii'itary career as a
cadet at West Point in the surSmer of
1633, graduating in ISZ'J, sicco which
ti mo he has continuously served thirty
eight years .passing through all the
grades to' Major General of volunteers
and Brigadier General in the regular ar
my. He served ia early life wilh ijiark
ed distinction in tho Florida rind Mexi
can war?, 3nd the outbreak fcf the civil
T9t ftrrd hij r. ?utT H Ne Metrco
where, ftfter the defection of. Kis septrtr,
he remained in command a;td dv-fended ;
the country successfully against formidc-J
bin inroads from the diie. tion of Texas.
He afterwards was transferred to the
East to a ruort) active and important
sphere. He exc reted Various hiy h com
mands, and at the close of the war was
in command of the Military Division of
tha West Mississippi, in which he bad
received a painful wound, but he had
the honor to capture Mobile and CMiirlel
the surrender ot the rebel forces of th
Southwe.-t. Since the close of the war
he has repeatedly been chosen for special
command by reason of bis superior
knowledge of law and civil government,
his known fidelity to the wishes of the
Executive and his chivalrous devotion to
his profession, in all of which he was
perfect. When fatigued by a long arid
laborious career in 1869 he voluntarily
consented to take command of the De
partuient oi i,oiutniua, wliero lie ex
pected he could ft.'joy tho repose he so
much covetfd. This Modes difficulty
arising la-t winter, and it heitiir extreme
ly desirous to end it by peaceful means,
it seemed almost providential that it
should have occurred within the sphere
of General Canby's command. He re
sponded to the call of his Government
with a'acritv A d has labored with a pa
tience that deserved better success, but
alas! the end is different fioni that
which he anl his best friends had hoped
for, and he now lies a corpse in the wild
mountains of California, while the light
ning flashes his requiem to the further
most coiner of, the civilized world.
Though dead, the record of bis fame is
