tribunals of the State, whose mandates will always be duly respected. The military authorities of the Department, as military officers, cannot decide upon the rights of property or claims to service except so far as they may be authorized by the laws of war or acts of Congress. When not so authorized they will avoid all interference with such questions.--Philadelphia Press, Dec. 30. Capt. Fry, of Company B, Twentieth regiment, started out from Warsaw, Ky., with a file of men for Eagle Creek, about thirteen miles from the village, having been ordered to arrest Capt. Washington R. Sanders, and break up a company of secessionists, who rendezvoused at his house. When they reached the house of Mr. Sanders he was not to be found. Upon searching the premises a six-pound cannon was found buried, together with six kegs of gunpowder, a quantity of rifles, bowie-knives, pistols, swords, and percussion caps. The arms, and other materials, were taken to Warsaw.--Louisville Journal.

and the next day they crossed the Missouri and proceeded north to the British possessions, with a view to join the renegade Sioux, with whom Sitting Bull was hiding. General Howard's troops were fearfully worn down by the long pursuit, but steadily followed the fleeing Nez Perces. Howard had meanwhile sent word to Colonel Miles at Tongue River of the movements of the Indians, and that officer started with fresh forces to head off the band. On Sept. 30, he came on them near the mouth of Eagle Creek, had a fight with them, and finally captured the entire band, numbering between 400 and 500 men, women, and children. As the fight was closing General Howard came up with his troops. This ended one of the most extraordinary Indian wars of which there is any record, said General Sheridan. And he added: The Indians throughout displayed a courage and skill that elicited universal praise; they abstained from scalping; let captive women go free; did not commit indiscriminate murder of peace

atest from Warsaw, Ky.--another Confederate village occupied by the Yankees. The following article from the Cincinnati Commercial shows how the Yankee hirelings are annoying the true men of Gallatin and Owen counties. The miscreants will yet be paid in full and with interest for all their outrages: On Sunday night Captains Hyatt and Fry, companies A and B, of Col. Whittiesy's regiment, were ordered to march, word having been received that Captain Sanders, the notorious rebel of Eagle Creek, was at New Liberty, a village about eighteen miles from Warsaw, where he was conducting himself with his usual violence and virulence toward the few whom he suspected of harboring Union sentiments in that village. New Liberty is in Owen county, and is the place where a big Secession barbecue was held some time since, and to which Humphrey Marshall and Breckinridge were invited. The former was present. Col. Whittiesey had information, also, that there were a number of State arms at New
