'July 2, 1864," was presented at the

Auditor refused to pay it on the ground

Wasiu.votox, July 10. An Importint
order was is-oicd at the War Department
yesterday and sent to General Miles, who I
to take the field in command of the troop
now in the Indian Territory to suppress the
trouble with tho Cheyenne. Army offi
cials are reticent as to tho contents of the
message. Persons not in authority, how
ever, say that the order contained Inatruo
tions to the commanding officer directing- him
to disarm the Indians. The Cheyenne Indi
ans are armed with the hot make of rifles
and have considerable quantities of arnruti
ultion. For some time they have autici
pated an attempt by tho army to take their
arms from thern, and hate in Mime In
stances hidden them. If these troops un
dertake to disarm them the ofllcials here,
who have dealt w th thu Cheyennes. say
they will resist until overpowered. There
are between 1,200 and 1,500 fighting Indians
among them. It waa said here yesterday
that General Augur favored the disarming
of thee Indians, hut considered the pre
?nt force Insufficient for the purpose.
OKIlKK TO MIKJCIDAN.
The Secretary of War has directed Gen
eral Sheridan to take immediate atep
towards the concentration of all troop that
may be available in case of Indian disturb
ance in the West. It is reported at the
War Department that the Indian
troubles grow more threatening. In re
gard to tli reported invasion of South
western Kansas by the Clieyennes, General
SchohVId lias telegraphed to the War De
partment: "Latest reports Indicate that no
Indians have been in Kan via yet and no
citizens have been killed, but that a number,
perhaps one hundred, of yonng Cheyennes
have left tbe agency. It Is belle ved. to con
ceal their anna oa aceo&ut of recent un
timely threats to disarm them."
