Sioux asking for citizenship. --A petition was recently presented to the Minnesota Legislature from twenty or thirty Sioux Indians, asking the rights of citizenship. They stated that they had adopted a number of customs in vogue among the whites, such as wearing pantaloons, living in houses, using knives and forks, being content with the possession and control of one wife, being willing to earn their bread "by the sweat of their brows," total abstinence from intoxicating liquors, regular attendance upon "stated preaching, &c.
Indian War. --The Davenport (Iowa) Gazette learns from Desmoines that three thousand Indians, apparently with hostile intent, were within fifty miles of Sioux City, and that the whole northwestern part of the State was in great alarm from the apprehended attack.
Fighting Among the Indians. --The Brownsville (N. T.) Advertiser publishes a letter from Major Baker, agent of the Otoes and Missouri Indians, dated August 10th, which gives an account of a terrible fight among the Indians on the plains: The Otoes and Pawnees were hunting buffalo on the Saline Fork, with every prospect of killing all they wanted, when the combined tribes of Sioux, Kiowas, Cheyennes, Arrapahoes and Camanches attacked the Pawnees with a superior force. The Pawnees immediately called on the Otoes, who were encamped near by and in full view, for assistance. Not with standing the Otoes had formed an alliance with the Pawnees for their mutual protection, the Otoes refused to help them. The Otoes witnessed the fight for about six hours, during which time the Pawnees sent four or five messengers to them, begging their assistance, that they were being cut to pieces by vastly superior numbers, that their head chief and leading brave were killed. One of the Otoes
From Missouri. Jefferson City, Mo., Sept. 16. --Intelligence has been received from Sioux City, announcing that one thousand Missourians had attacked Boonsville, and had been repulsed with 12 killed and 30 wounded. F. P. Blacir, Jr., has been ordered to report himself under arrest on the charge of using disrespectful language when alluding to superior officers. Gov. Jackson has publicly announced his intention to move the Capital of Missouri to Lexington, which will doubtless soon be in possession of Gen. Price. Whether the Legislature, which adjourned in May last to meet again to-day, will be ready to proceed to business, cannot now be ascertained.
Steamboat sunk in the Upper Missouri. --By passengers who arrived yesterday morning from Sioux City, and who came across the State of Iowa, we have intelligence of the sinking of the Atchison ferry-boat S. G. Morrow, which left Rev. Joseph about fourteen days since for Fort Randall. The news was brought to Stoux City by the stage driver from Fort Randall. The boat is said to be sunk at or near the mouth of James River, and was loaded principally at Rev. Joseph by Dr. Burleigh, the Agent of the Yancton Indians. Her load consisted of supplies for those Indians, and goods for the traders, together with some army supplies, shipped by the Quartermaster of the army in this city for Fort Randall. No further particulars were brought by our informants.--Rev. Louis Republican, 13th.
Later from the North. We have received New York papers of Friday, Oct. 10th. We give below their dispatched relative to the battle between Bragg and Buell, at Ferryville, Ky., on the 8th. Washington dispatches deny that any changes are "immediately to occurred in the Cabinet. The Sioux war, by the same authority, is declared to be practically ended. --fifteen hundred of the hostile Indians are prisoners, and many others coming in. The leading chiefs who are proved to have participated in the late massacres will be summarily executed. Reconnaissances have been made by Sigel's cavalry to Rappahannock Station, without finding any Confederates. Great battle is Kentucky. The New York Herald, of the 10th, has dispatches announcing a general engagement between Bragg and Buell at Perryville, Ky., which is preceded by a long heading, in which the word "victory" does not occur once. This is almost equal in that paper to a frank confession of defeat. The battle commenced on We

Aggregate number, 268,079. Creeks, 25,000; Cherokees, 17,350; Choctaws, 16,000; Navajos, 15,000; Sioux, 14,638; Camanche, 1,800; Apaches, 7,800.
tion of this outrage, retreated from the road in great haste." --The Federals are hurrying away from Price to attend to Hood. A dispatch from St. Louis, dated the 4th, says: "General Rosecrans and A. J. Smith arrived last night, Smith's infantry moving east ward, one column on the north side and the other on the south side of the Missouri river, with instructions to clear the country of guerrillas. Advices from the Upper Missouri say that General Sully and his companies are at Sioux City." (And the following for an election card.) "A private dispatch from Springfield, Missouri, says our troops whipped Price again at Newton country, Missouri, date not given. We now hold the town, and the rebels are retreating into Arkansas. "Major-General Marmaduke, Brigadier-General Cabel, and four rebel colonels, captured by General Pleasanton at the battle at Osage, left here yesterday for Johnson's island. From six to eight inches of snow fell here yesterday," --
