The Hard Times. It Causes and
Since the admission of Nebraska, as a
Territory, there 1ms been ono continual
grind," by her blood-sucker speculators
nnd political thimble riggers, and every
thing that could bo turned to the tune of
dollars and fume, has been made to
travel at a rate 'of speed, that proved more
far than wise. "
' We have had Banks, Paper Towns, and
Wagon Roads, all for tho ostensible pur
purpose of accommodating and benefiting
the country and the hard working squat
ters ; but the real object in view, was to
construct levers, which would enable cer-
taiu scheming dogs to reach the pinnacle of
monetary and political fame. Our Wag
on Roads hare proved of some service,
and we earnestly hope for more, but be
yond these, we have no admiration for
the end obtained.
The machinery of government, nnd
out-side wire working, ore es corrupt as
hell itself ; but it is extremely fortunate
for the masses, that bad motives some-
times result in good. If they did not. we

' Indlnii Troubles In .tlliiiimotn.
J A battle recently occured near the town
of Shakopce, Minnesota, between the
Chippewa and Sioux Indians. The Min
nesotian of May ilDih, says :
The warfare was conducted in a regu
lar Indian f-tylu a running fight nrwiij
the trees and logs, and gram, mterpersed
with a few hand to hand conflicts with
tomahawks and war-club. When a Sioux
would fall ho was immediately carried to
the rear, and takpn across on the ferry
boat. Several who were also severely
wounded were taken to tlif rear, but as
soon as ihey recovered a little, would rush
back into the thickest of the light. The
Sioux are 6aid to have acted with the
greatest bravery during the whole battle,
charging upon and following the enemy
with a perfect desperation Whenever a
Chippewa would fall, his head was imme
diately cut off and carried to the rear.
Four ghastly heads wers thus taken over
the river, and exhibited with great exul
tation by the squaws who were busy ell
the time carrying ammunition, (which it
is said, was furnished by citizens to them
free of charge,) and encouraging their
warriors. Later in the day, some head
less bodipj of the Chippewas were
brought over, and tho squaws hacked them
to pieces, and finally kindled a fire under
one of them, and burnt it up ! This last
sickening spectule of barbarity is taid, by
those who witnessed it, to have been hail
ed with fiendish exultation by the Sioux.
About 10 o'clock the Chippewas drew
off, and the whole force retreated over
the blufTs in the direction of Lake Minne
tonka, leaving four of their warriors be
hind them, one of which, from the decor
ations on the scalp, is supposed to be a
distinguished chief. As they passed a
certain point on their trail, they were
carrying six, and some accounts say eight,
wounded braves on litters, besides those
wounded who were able to walk, somo of
whom seemed to be badly hurt. The
Sioux then returned to their encampment
with great exultation over their victory,
and counted their loss, when it was found
that two were killed, two to pronounced
by physicians present to be fatally wound-
ed. und tho others wounded more or less,
presenting a bloody picture of barbarism
to the crowds of citizens who had assem
bled there. Four raw scalps wero flaun'
ed on a pole, and four ghastly head
were paraded as trophies, besides the dis
figured trunks of two others.1
During die whole battle, the high bank
which overlooked the bottom across the
river, near Major Murphy's house, was
lined with spectators indeed "the whole
Uwn " might be said to be there, watch
ing the fight, and seeming to enjoy the
unusual spectacle of two nations of bar
barians murdering, .mangling, mutilating
each other, in full sight of a city of Chris
tians, its churches, court nouse anu insti
tutions of learning barbarism, and its
brutal spectacles, in contrast with enlight
enment and its blesssings.
Fearing another attack, the Sioux
moved their tepees in a huddle, and dug
trenches, in which they watched all night
well armed. No attack was made, how
ever, though it was thought the Chippe
was hud not gone oa altogether, but were
lurking somewhere iu the vicinity, for
another skirmish. HjlH-in-the-day was
reported to be with them, but this is doubt
ed. It is said by them who viewed the
battle from the bluff, that only about
thirty or foity Chippewa warriors were
engaged in it, the main body remaining
in the rear. If this is so they must have
had some vile design in drawing off',
which will appear hereafter.
Numerous trophies of the fight ware
secured, such as battle axes, etc. A map
was also found, drawn on birch bark,
which depicted the Chippewa war trail,
with some hieroglyphics, which the wise
men pretended to interpret. Several Chip
pewa heads were also purchased ns me
mentos, and shown to the curious with
