———r yf n WESTMINSTER, MD. SATURDAY, JUNK 3,1876. The Democratic Advocate FOR THE CAMPAIGN. The Democratic party is just entering upon one of the moat important political campaigns which has ever occurred in the history of this country. Its result is fraught with more of good or ill, than is patent to the casual ob server, and depends, to a great extent, upon the force and perspicuity with which the issues of the campaign are presented to the public mind, and received and acted upon by the people at large, or a majority of them. The Advocate will give special prominence j to the leading points in issue between the | parties, and labor to keep the Democrats of j Carroll thoroughly posted on all the promi- j nent topics of the canvass. MT The Campaign paper should go into the hands of every voter, and especially of EVERY DEMOCRAT. 9&T From this time, until the 11th of No vember, a period of over FIVE MONTHS, the paper will be sent regularly for the low price of FIFTY CENTS. BSP* We hope that every prominent Demo crat in the county will consider himself an agent for this paper to enlarge its circulation, and by so doing to send into every household Democratic truth. Set to work, without de lay, and let the Advocate Hud its way into the hands at least ot every Democrat in the county. mr* Send in your orders at once, accom panied by the cash in each case. European War—American Produce. War in Europe is believed to be immi nent. The leading nations it is said, are about to rush to arms, the bone of con tention being (he long-threatening Turkish question. A general European war would advance in the United States the prices of graiu and provisions of every descrip tion, and give an impetus to trade such as it has not felt for a long time. The ques tion is daily discussed on change, in New York, and a letter from that fity, dated Monday last, to the Philadelphia Ledger, presents the subject in a very interesting aspect. It says; “The near prospect of another European war, growing out of the eastern question, is the uppermost thought for the moment in the public mind, now 'it will affect our great material interests is discussed with more or lass earnestness at the Commercial | Exchange, but while all admit that the crisis | is imminent, scarcely two men can be fonnd lo agree as to what the practical consequences really will be should war result, with England ns one of the combatants. “Austria, Russia and Germany united,’* said a prominent foreign banker this morn ing, “could bring into the field two million of armedynen, the best soldiers in Europe, and with these they could sweep the armies of Turkey into the Bosphorus if so they chose, in less than sixty days. England doubtless will maintain her naval supremacy in the Dardanelles, and she may even occupy Con stantinople, but where are the troops she will ueed to enable her to hold it against the Triple Alliance? It is questions like this that are troubling Lombard street, and that ia the reason why the Rothschilds are selling out consols.” This feeling as to the inability of England to cope with her formidable adversaries should the worst come to the worst is a very prevalent one. The sympathies as well as the interests of France wonfd no doubt prompt her to throw her sword into the scale against j Germany, but in her present prostrate condi ; tion a prudential policy would tempt her to i remain neutral until it could be mure clearly | foreseen how events were going to torn out. j This is not a matter of abstractions. It has I an eminently practical bearing upon our j leading interests. It means higher prices for wheat, and corn, and oats, and a quick demand for whatever American tonnage is in the market. It has a near relation to the prices of gold and stocks, and in fact to al most every large financial, commercial and maritime interest. It is no wbnder, there {pre, that people are scanning the cable de rches with an anxiety that transcends for time being any that attaches to Presiden tial politics or anything of the kind. ” The revolution in Turkey which has just deposed the Baitao, may postpone the final catastrophe of war, or it may hasten it. All is uncertainty as yet. As an evidence of the excitement in Europe on this subject, it is said there was almost a panic on the London Stock Exchange Saturday in foreign securities, some of which-reached the lowest point ever known. The Rothschilds are reported to have sold £1,000,000 consols, which is taken as an indication that the political situation is likely to grow worse. All the Western powers are sending their fleets to the Mediterranean. The London Standard says one hundred tons of gunpowder and a million cartridges have just been sent from Woolwich to ( Gibraltar, an d ail available worsen are being put to work in the dock yards. An Un&rtnnnte Blander. Mr. Downes’ order of business, adopted by the late Democratic Stale Convention, j m far aa it related to the power conferred j on district delegates to select the delegates from said districts to St. Louis, was a mistaken policy, and an innovation upon former practice. The districts should have nominated the delegates. But the Convention should have ratified or reject- . d them at pleasure. What need of a State Convention to nominate delegates, if the several districts were empowered to tainotions irroapective of the Con-' vention. Why not call district conven-j Cons to stake dUtriot nominations jo.t „ candidates for Congress are ekoaon ? The 3d rale of Mr. Downes’ proposition, was wall calculated to give dissatisfaction, boortmc, it was not only not ondeistood togs of former Conventions, And it is •calculated to work injury to and s elected Headricks delegate*. i_,, j I —— { The Accusation Against Speaker Kerr. I On Monday lust Lawrcuco Harney tee- | j tilled before Mr.Clymer’s Committee, that, in 1866, while he was assistant doorkeeper of the House, ho paid to Mr. Kerr, the | sun of 1450 for procuring for Augustus | P. Green, of New York, a commission in | the regular army, Mr. Kerr having re- I commended Green's appointment, in con- ; sideration of that sum to him paid by Harney. After Harney had told his story, Mr. Kerr took the stand, and duly sworn, contradicted Harney's statement in toto. He emphatically denied the whole story. Mr. Green was also examined. He testi-! tied that he paid the money to Harney, but did not then believe, and does not now believe, that Mr. Kerr ever received a cent of the money. This ia equivalent to say ing that he believes Harney to be a base perjurer, which he doubtless is. This man Harney is a Republican, a ward politician, and holds a subordinate place in the Ap praiser's office of the New York Custom House. He concocted this story out of revenge for an examination into the Ap praiser's Office with which he was con nected. Mr. Kerr has been in Congress for about ten years, and bus borne an ir reproachable ebaracier through all that time, no breath of suspicion having sullied | his fair fame. The impression very gen | ermly prevails that this story of Harney is , unworthy of belief, and is the result of a . conspiracy. The New York Tribune sills Harney's statement, as follows, showing its disbelief in the malignant slander: Speaker Kerr might be jpardoued if he asked yesterday, with some bitterness, wheth er there was no recognition on this side of the grave for an upright life, and uo protec tion in a spotless reputation. He has been more than twenty years in public employ ment, and is serving his fifth term in Congress, and .scandal has never been busy with bis name tilt now, nor has the most unscrupu lous of his opponents, in the many sharp political contests iu which he has taken part, j ventured to impugn his integrity. He has been surrounded with temptation and has lived in the midst of corruption, but men of j both parties have agreed that he was one of j the tew politicians in Washington whose scru pulous honesty reflected credit upon the pro fession of politics. Yet the moment a man— we do not say of bad character, but of no character at all—accuses him of taking a piti ful bribe, not large enough to tempt an ordinary thief, we find a great many newspa per* of the opposite party ready to accept every word of the tale for solid truth, oud to j declare that unless Mr. Kerr can “prove” his innocence he is already practically con victed. His honorable life counts fur nothing, j The gross improbability of the charge counts for nothing ; and in their haste to believe evil these intemperate partisans even lose sight of j the very simple explanation of Harney's con- I duct which suggests itself at once to every im- I partial reader. The accusation was first heard of when , Harney began to use it privately as a threat to stop an investigation into a bureau of the Custom-house with which he was connected. It has been whispered in newspaper offices and certain political club-rooms for several weeks. In its original form the charge that Mr. Kerr actually took the money from Har ney was not distinctly mode, and it is nut difficult to understand how Mr. Harney, with out intending to do the Speaker any real harm, may have gone about hinting menaces, and half-uttering disclosures, in the hope of frightening investigations away from the Ap praiser's office, until the scandal of his crea tion got beyond his control, and he found to his dismay that it was no longer Mr. Kerr's reputation that was at stake, nor Mr. Darling's, i but his own. Summoned to Washington, he was driven to the dilemma of either making 1 oath to the bribery of the Speaker or con fessing that he had robbed Greene, slandered Mr. Kerr, and attemp ed to blackmail a com mittee ot Congress ; and Mr. Harney seems to have hesitated some time before he madu up his mind which horn to choose. , The extreme improbability of Mr. Kerr's committing such a foolish crime for $450, ami at the same time putting himself in the power j 1 of his political opponents—for Greene was a Republican,' and Harney was a Republican j office-holder—has already been alluded to. There is another point which seems to have escaped notice. Why did Harney make him self a party to the crime ? He swears that ho not only gave Mr. Kerr all the money which he received from Greene, but he even advan ced forty dollars out of his own pocket to make up the amount. He seems to have vi olated all the precedents of the lobby by charging nothing for bis services. Why ? Certainly not out of friendship for Mr. Kerr, because the extent of his intimacy with that gentleman seems to have been “passing time |of day. Nor out of friendship for Greene, i because Greene testifies that he always believ ed, and believes still, that Harney lied to I bin* and kept the money himself; and that ( is not the way a man speaks of his friends. ! ! No, it is morally certain that if Harney had | acted as the intermediary in any such trans j action he would have demanded his share of the profit; when he avers that he committed a felony out of pore benevolence toward a man who looked upon him os a consummate rascal, he lays too heavy a tax upon credulity, even for a campaign season.— X. 1”. Tribune. Harney was further examined by the Committee yesterday. The National Nominating Con ventions.—These bodies will have 756 vote* each. In the Democratic Conven tion the two-thirds rule makes it necessary for the nominee to receive 504 votes to 252 for all others. In the Republican Convention the majority will determine who is the nominee, which is but 378 votes. It will thus be seen that it is a much easier matter to effect a nomination in the Republican Convention than in the Democratic. When the Democratic Con vention meets at St. Louis, the first thing it ought to do is to repeal that obnoxious two-thirds rule, which has killed off all the popular favorites in the party from i the time of its adoption until now, and unless repealed is likely to do a similar ! | disservice for the party at St. Louis. j The Society of the Army of the Poto- : I wac, Gen.

We glean the following from the Haiti- WWW American, of Monday, promising hat that journal is hardly considered ca nonical authority in nwttera pertaining to Democratic politic*. During the last few weeks there haa lieeu, it ia stated, considerable wrangling among the managers in the city and State. Hon. Wil liam Pinkney Whyte ia reported to have cut loose from Mr. Arthur Dorman, Mr. Michael Baunou and company, and is using his influ ence for “reconciliation and harmony"— whatever that may mean—in the Democratic party. In reference to the prospective nominations of candidates for Congress this fall, the opin ion was expressed that ex-Uovernor Philip Frank Thomas would be renominated in the First district. In the Second district there would be some opposition, to the reuominatiou of Mr. Roberta, as Hon. Stevenson Archer's friends are anx ious to aee him again in the House of Repre sentatives, but the chances were all in favor of the renomination of Mr. Roberta. In the Third district the present Represen tative, Hon. W. J. O'Brien, is said to have no chance whatever for the nomination again. Messrs. John M. Carter, ex-Mayur Vansank, Colonel Win. Kimmell, Major William E. Stewart and Fetter S. Uoblitzcll arc in the Held for the nomination. The Ring some time since, it is said, promised the nomina tion to Mr. Vansant, but it is now thought they cannot fill the contract. It is denied that Hon. Thomas Swann will have sny opposition in h : s own parly in the Fourth district. Mr. McLsne, who was ex peeled to have been his competitor for the nomination, will not he a candidate, and Mr. H. Clay Dallam, according to rumor, has also gotten out of the war, leaving Mr. Swann an open track so far as the Democratic party is concerned. In the Fifth and Sixth districts, in accor dance with what is called “party usage," the present members of the House of Represen tatives, Messrs. Henkle mnd Walsh, will, it is thought, both be renominated. The friends of Mr. Archer deny the above statement in reference to their op position to the ronomintlioD of Mr. Ro berts. On the contrary the district will support him with great unanimity. We must express our gratification that Hon. Montgomery Blair was not chosen as a delegate to St. Louis by the State Convention on Wednesday. Per centra, wo are nut at all gratified that the State Convention did not aubstitule some other name for that of Mr. Slater, whose selec tion reflects no credit upon the Monumen tal City. It is surprising that Baltimore cannot rise to a higher self-appreciation than to confer her honors with so little discrimination. The Baltimorean, of Baltimore oily, closed its fourth volume on Saturday, and was handsomely illustrated. The paper is i success and is deserving of the large patronage it receives. If the credibility of Mulligan, the Bos ton witness against Blsine, can be estab lished, the testimony will make it rather rough for the Radical heir apparent. A New Democratic Paper.—Messrs. West A Jacobs arc about to start a new Democratic paper, at Waynesboro', Frank lin county, Pa. Destructive Tire in Quebec. A disastrous conflagration broke out in the St. Louis suburb of Quebec on Tues day afternoon, when, for some reason, the water was turned off from that district. The fire continued to rage until, at ten o'clock at night, it was estimated thatone thousand bouses hsd been destroyed. A high wind was blowing most of the time. At ten o clock the fire still burned fiercely, but was “somewhat under control," the wind having moderated, and water become plentiful. The fire, which started in Scott street, passed through the centre of the St. Louis suburb, from the western to the eastern limit, facing the fortifications, then southerly to the Qrand Alice, and norther ly to tho third street south of St. John street. As none of the buildings were valuable, the lose ia estimated at little more than 81,1)00,000. The fields around the burned district were covered with goods of all descriptions, and hundreds of poor people were obliged to remain in the apeo air. latter accounts state several children were burned ap, and the number >f house* destroyed ia put at 700. The Impeachment. It is believed that the Senate, having leoided that it has jurisdiction in the case )f Belknap, will postpone his trial until November next. The impeachment man igere express the opinion that the trial will occupy at least six weeks. To go on with it now would prolong the session of Congress until the latter part of August >r the beginning of September, as, in ad lition to the time consumed by the trial, ■ month or six weeks would be required for the disposal of such necessary legisla tion as the annual appropriation billa. It is said that “grave donbts are expressed by many disinterested persons" whether ■nything will be gained by proceeding with the trial, less than two-thirds of the Senate having voted in favor of jurisdiction, md those who voted against it- not being precluded by the Senate's action from voting “not guilty" on tho jurisdictional ground. Centennial Hotel. Custom-house officers are stationed at every door of the Exhibition Buildings to lee that no dutiable articles are carried away. This makes a good deal of trouble for viaiton with bundles—the result of previous shopping. The proprietors of places of amusement are cheered by the estimate that there are only 20,01)0 strangers in Philadelphia now, but that there will be 100,000 a month hence. There are more than 42 places open. Congress having authorised the loan of 700 wsll and 80 hospital tents to the Mexican Veteran Association, to be used during their visi* to the Centennial Exhi bition, the Quartermaster General has sent a communication to Congress stating that the supply of tents is small, and that if the loan is made for the summer, it will ho at a coat of SIB,OOO, as other tents will hare to be manufactured for the army.

A Fisk New Barn.—W© noted, some week* ! ago, that Mr. Win. Fenby, living on the Wash ington road, about a mile and u half from Westminster, was building a handsome new Swiss barn. The barn is 70 feel long and 4 , feet wide. It rests upon a solid stono foun- ' dal ion, three feet thick, with brick end walls, | giving the structure a neater finish. Thu masonry was done by Mr. Josephus Sheelcr, the blacksmith's work by Mr. Geo. Mahanna, the carpenter’s work by Mr. Joshua Diluian, who has made a very neat and substantially finished job of it. The basement or ground Hoor is arranged for the comfort of the stock and for the convenience of feeding. It is provided with stalls for nine head of horses, and the department for the cows ia supplied with Gifford s patent sell-halt® ring atauncheon A wide passage extends from end to end of the building, and the ventilation is perfect. ) The main floor is laid of inch plank, of two ; thicknesses, which makes thu floor very sub- i stantial. The space for thu threshing floor is I capacious. Wagons loaded with hay, straw, | Ac., can drive in upon the main floor, where | there are ropes, pullies and forks, for unload f ing by horse-power. On the main floor, in ou6 corner of the building, are four grain | bins which will hold 76 bushels each, made , of best yellow pine, and so closely joined to- S tther that not even clover seed could escape ; rough the joints. At each and of thu barn i are overiets for hay on one side, and straw j and bedding on thu othur. There are 14 slat I blinds or ventilators on the rear side, lion I each end and several on the front side, while ! the top of the barn is surmounted by three upright ventilators, the centre one the largest, | giving an ornate finish to (he roof. The sills, J beams and girders are of substantial white : oak and chestnut timber, cut from Mr. Fen- ; by’s own forest. The barn has not yet been painted. When entirely finished, the old buildings torn down, and the debris removed, Mr. Feuby will have one of the best barns in the county. And. indeed, the farm is worthy of it. It contains 150 acres of very tine land, which he has put in a high state of cultivation, and bus slocked it with a great variety of choice fruit, consisting of apples, pears, cher ries, peaches, raspberries, strawberries, Ac. The orchard is large and flourishing, contain ing about 200 trees of very choice varieties. Located as it is, so convenient to the county seat, it is one of the most desirable farms in this neighborhood. Manchester Items.— On Tuesday of lust week Mr. Henry H. Miller, residing on York street, while carrying a shovelful I of mortar, stepped on t piece of wood which gave way and in trying to recover, he fell back on a stone and broke a rib. Dr. T. H. Kelts was called and rendered the necessasy surgical aid. Miss Alverta Appold, daughter of Mr. An drew Appold, residing at Union Tannery, about a mile southeast of this place, was se verely scalded on Friday evening, the 19th instant. She had taken some young turkeys to show to her father who was on the yard, and while he was looking at them, she acci dentally stepped into a vat partly full of hot liquor, which was covered with dry tan. Her father was unable to draw her out himself and ! called for help, and until the arrival of assis lance, the unfortunate young lady had to | stand with both feet in about a foot of hot liquor, and was therefore not only badly scal ded but must have been literally stewed, j Medical assistance was summoned immedi ately and everything that medical skill could invent was done to relieve her intense suffer ing. She is in a critical condition. Peter Lucabaugh, about 88 years of age. died at the residence of his son, about 4 miles east of this place, on the 30th instant. The deceased was a veteran of the war of 1812, having served in Capl. Stocksdale's Company | Maryland militia. j Decoration Day was observed here with ( much ceremony. The exercises were opened | by singing the Star Spangled Banner, by a large choir of ladies and gentlemen, with or- ; gan accompaniment. Mr. Ewing, of Havre j oe Grace, a student at the Western Maryland I College, led in prayer, after which the choir sung Maj. B. B. French's national consecra tion chant. The orator of the day was Mr. Jacob Christ, of Uniontown, who delivered an appropriate address. Rev. J. McK. Ham moqk pronounced the benediction, immedi ately after which the decoration of the graves took place. A procession was formed, head ed by muffled drum and draped flag, and a banner bearing the inscription “177t5, Mary land mourns her patriot dead, 187tt,” borne by two little girls. There was a great pro fusion of flowers, and the graves were covered with many beautiful floral offerings. Thk Cot* sty Farm.— 'The /fence enclosing the Alms House Farm has been nicely white washed, giving an air of tidiness and neatness which is pleasant to the eye of the beholder. \ The lime contributes to the preservation of the fence and gives an air of cheerfulness to | the premises. The labor was performed by | i the inmates, entailing very little additional j I expense, save the outlay for a few brushes I and a few additional bushels of lime. Strati | gers from a distance who visit our Alms j House and the Farm on which it is located, say they never saw a better managed institu- I lion of the kind anywhere.* Everything in j the House and upon the Farm is kept scru pulously neat and clean, and the institution is an honor to the county, one in which her citizens may feel a just pride. Stone Roai Items.— Mr. Jacob Hankert, residing near this place, is coustrueliug a new ; dwelling house 20x2*1. The building will be log-frame, which be intends to case with brick. ' Mr. Frank Williams, residing in the village of Mayberry, has erected a stone dairy, which is the finest in the village, Mr. William Rod- ! kev being the contractor. 9 The farmers in this locality are very busy at present in cultivating their corn and haul- ' ing manure. The crops arc all very promising at present, with the exception of the potato crops which 1 has been greatly injured by the potato bugs. Rev. P. A. Long will lecture on baptism in Bust’s church, on Sunday, the 4th of June, 1 at 2 o'clock, p. m. Fisks euro Items.—Mr. John Hill, living near this place, while splitting wood on the | 25th ultimo, cut his foot across the instep, I causing a severe and painful wound, which bled profusely. A little daughter of Mr. Westaway, living near Sandy Mount, while playing in a wagon on the 81st ultimo, fell over, catching on a spike, which penetrated and lacerated her 1 leg for several inches below the knee, making i an ugly flesh wound. The grain crops in our section are looking finelv, and- present indications are that the vield will be excellent. The recent rains i have improved the grass, making the pros- i pects much brighter for the hay crop. The Wheat Crop.—The growing wheat crop in this countv, never looked better. If | no disaster should befall it, the farmers will gather one of the heaviest crop* ever garnered in this county. It gladdens the eye and the 1 heart to look upon the luxuriant fields of this important cereal. The Grams Crop. —l his crop, also, is very i heavv. We never saw a better prospect for ! an abundance of hay than that now presented. • I Racim: Stock.— Viator and Picolo, the ! j well-known horses of E. A. Clabaugh, Esq.; 1 of Middleburg, passed through this city on 1 I Monday, on their wav to the farm. They I I were bot* looking well and attracted much i •Mention. Both are entered for the Jerome : \ Park, N. Y., races next week. Viator won the two mile race at Pimlico on Friday of last week.

' Severe Accident. —As the express train from Baltimore, on Monday evening, was crossing n bridge this side of the tank, a nurse in the employ of Mr*. Baldwin, Hagerstown, received a severe injury by her head coming m contact with the bridge. She had her head out of the window at the time, fortu nately not far enough to do any serious dam age, though under the circumstances she made a narrow escape. Attempted Burglary.—On Saturday night, abont J 2 o’clock, an attempt was made to en ter the house of Mr. Amon Algire, near Pa tapsco Station. Tba window had been nailed down, and the noise made by forcing it an awoke Mrs, A. who went to see what caused it.

A Contrast.—We visited Hagerstown on business two weeks ago, and could but mark the contrast between the streets of that place and Westminster. There the streets are paved, scraped, and swept clean. Here they | alternate between mud and dust and present a very uninviting aspect. The streets are not }aved, and are the receptacles of coal ashes, scraps of pajwr. the sweepings of offices. Ac. Stones, rubbish, und the debris of buildings, ; pavementSj and other accumulations, are per ■ wilted to lie in the streets from month to ' month. There is no one who seems to have pride enough to clean up these obstructions and nuisances, and the city authorities have i not disturbed themselves, to any great extent, in order to keep our streets clean. The in traduction of water is talked of, but it seems to us that the most pressing necessity of all I is the pavement of the streets, as the dust, at ; times, is intolerable. . Du. Saui'ki.

First. That offices ore created for the ■ i public good, and not us rewards for politi ’ j cal services and spoils to the victors; that j they should be filled by capable, honest and efficient men, who should have and exercise only such powers us are conferred j. upon them by law, and should use them only for the gyod of the whole people. That officers should have reasonable com t pensation proportionate to their duties and responsibilities, and should bo held to a , rigid accountability for the manner in which they exercise tho trusts conferred upon them. Second. That the traditions of the ( Democratic party recognise coin us the 1 only money warranted by the Constitution, 1 and that wo arc in favor of a speedy re-* turn to specie payment, believing that the industry of tho country and the interests ■ of the whole people demand a fixed and not a fluctuating standard of value. ' Third.

Fourth. That nil the Democratic and Conservative voters of Maryland, whatever may havel>ecn their past differences and opinions about state politics and candi ! elates, and all honest men, irrespective of former party affiliations, are cordially in • vited, in the interest of pure government and free institutions, to unite in restoring the federal government to that peace, union and purity which characterized the , early days of the American republic.

Olcott was muster of ceremonies, and he was assisted by six others dad in long black robes, who made responses to certain questions “from an ancient Egyptian liturgy." The <|ucstionH and responses were interspersed with music. There were seven lights on tho coffin, arranged as a triangle; a serpent twisted around a wooden frame stood beside the coffin, and incense was burned. Tho musical portion of the i programme was curtailed by the action of j an old gentleman, who, not liking the ' options expressed iu the ritual, ordered his daughter to unit tho organ.

Abdul A 111, who has been tho Sultan of Turkey since IH6I, was deposed by his Ministers on Monday night. Ills nephew, Murad Kflendi, being the heir presump tive, was immediately proclaimed Sultan. Thu immediate cause of the ex-Sultan s downfall was the discontent of tho Softas (officials and jittendunts of the nmsquea,) who demanded last week (hat the Sultan should cease to bo Caliph, that is, spiri tual head of the Mohammedans, The boldness of this request appears to have rendered him |sjwcrless to resist further concessions.

Such a result has all along been feared. The white men there arc trespassers; they went after receiving fair warning from the Government that in so doing they placed themselves outside of its protection. Rut while the United States cannot with pro priety undertake to protect tho miners in their trespass, the object will probably be attained indirectly by means of military . expeditions against the hostile Sioux. Captain Nickerson, aid to Gen. Crook, | telegraphs from Fort Pettcrman Monday [ that all the young warriors had left Red i Cloud to join Sitting Bull, leaving their families to be protected at the agencies.
