The St. Louis Republican of the 21st nit. has
the following" interesting summary of news from
the Rociey Mountains:
Among the pas eng rs of the steamer Daroc
down yesterday from Missouri river were Mr.
JP. D-Pa pin and about thirty Yoyogeiirs who are
in charge of somesix Mackinaw boats loaded mth
buffi do robes and consigned to Messrs. P. Choa
teftu Jr. & Co.
Mr.Papiu corroborates the report relative to the
existence of small -pox amonj the Sioux Indians
during the put winter and states also that numer-
ous deaths have uccured in that tribe by cholera.
It is supposed that during the winter from three
to foor thousand of tbeee Indians have died by
these combined diseases. The small-pox is still
raging and as the Sioux continue to have free iu-
terconse with other tribes in their vicinity there
can uu fortunately be Utile doubt thatit will spread
through a large portion of the Iudiau country
Both disease? were introduced bj the emigrants
to Oregon and California. The various trading
posts throughout the country were well supplied
uith medicines and the traders have been enabled
ui consequence to reuder efficient sen ice iu check -lap
these new and fearful diseases.
The exprera bearing the circular of Col. D. D.
Mitchell Superintendent of Indian Affairs to the
several tribes of Indiaus living south of the Mis
ouri .river was met beyond ibe Cheyenne and
near Grand river on the 25th or 2Cih ult. He
had been well equipped and well supplied with
provisions ut Fort Pierre and it was suppcd
thatlie prosecuted his journey thence rapidly
It is presumed that by this lime many of the
tribes have Ijeen notified to repair lo Tort Laramie.

Major flatten Indian Agent came down on
the Maokinaw-bootj of MrrPapuj as far as Helle-

At the close of the meeting a learned negro took
his seat at the table in order to mar'- down the
sum each came to give. A large number came
mod laid their contributions upon the table some
more or less. Among the number thatcAme up

mers in a recent speech before the Virginia Con-

him that "he wished to throw married ladies
overboard" as follows:

MORE PARTICULARS OP THE RECENT STORM

On Wednesday the 25th nit in the forenoon a
hnvy wind came up from the East and continued
blo-xing strongly dorioj the remainder of the day.
Towards night the wind shifted to the southeast
and blew w ith n violeuce during the remainder of
the night to which the recollections of the oldest
inhabitants of this portion of the coast cuu furnish
no parallel. It was truly an awful night hiid the
terrible roaring of the tempest shaking buildings to
tlieir foundation and threatening destruction lined
all with alarm and apprehension. The tide rose to a
fearful height tar beyond all former example beat-
ing with terrific violence upon the beach and do-
ing extensive damage. Towards day the fury of
the galo commenced abating and wi'h the dawn-
ing of the light a tearful scene of d sister wan pre-
sented. The violence of the tide had broken and
swept away all the thanes; some were almost
entirely dtbtrojed scarcely a vestige rtmniningto

In relation to the reserved five millions it Is to bo regret-
