We have no desire to excuse the cowrdly and treaclierous murder ot' General Cauby and the Peace Commissioners by the Modoc Indians. On the other hand we hope that a swift and terrible punishment will be meted out to theni. But any perstfi familiar with the bloody annals of Indian waïfare knows only too well that deeds fully as murderous and treacherous Bflj this havo been again and again perpetrated by whites upan Indians. A correspondent of the New York Tribune, who resided for many ypars in Northern California, has told with some particularity in its columns the story of the ñiassacre, twenty years ago, of a number of Modocs by a compauy of whites to which our telegraphic dispatchns have made brief allasion. Twenty years ago, when the whites began to settle in the country intho neighborhood of Yreka, tlie Slodocs, then a flourishing and wa'rlike tribe, resented ■the innovation and waylaid the wagons of the immigrante, in one inslanee rnassacriug every man, woman and child, with a single exception, of a train. The exasperated settlers foimed ff company to punish this cruel and cowardly act, and under the command of öne Wright, started in pursuit of the Indian band which was led by a chief named Seh.onchin, the father of hiui of tha same name who was a cluief under Jack. Wright first proposed to invite the Indiana to a ffiendly feast and to kill tbem all by feeding. them apon a roasted ax, the flesh of whieh had been poisoned. But public sentiment was against this mode of extermination, and it was abandonad. At length AVright caine up with the band at. a time when their bow-strings wero wet and úseles, and proposing a conference he offered his hand to Schonchin in token of iinity. Then suddcnly drawing his pistol, as Jack did his upon General Cauby, ho shot Schouchin as a signal to his men for a general ilaughter, as Jaek's shooting General Canby, was a signal to this Sciionchiri's son and the rest to murder the eoinmissioners la it aiy wonder that tbpse savages, with tliis examplu set the'ii by the whites, should retnember it? Is it strange that whon the occasion ■comes at lat to repay the treacherous .murder in kind, they should nvail themselves of it ir Certainly, with this exaruple in inind. tlio white people ennnotcon■demn the wkole Indian race on account of this murder. Tliey cannot do so without a'so cojidemning their own race. The Indians can say to the whites, as Shylock to the Christians: "The vil1 linjr you did teach me I will execute, and it will go hard if I do not better the exftinple." - Detroit Tribune. Fresidext U-raxt i.y St Louis. - At thfi reception tcndcred to General Gr.int in St,.
