No. 143 Main street, Galena, Illinois LOCKS AND KEYS, BRASS FAUCETS, Of all kinds repaid, and Bell-Hanging done. --Sharpening done as usual.--" CAPTURE OF NOTED CHIEFS.-- "Little Six, another Sioux Chief, and since the death of Little Crow, the leading spirit among the hostile Indians of Minnesota, has been captured. He and Medicine Bottle, were both taken on British soil. Drugged liquor was given them, and after they were well asleep, chloroform added to their insensibility. Whilein this condition they were bound upon sleds and run into Major'sHatch's camp. The act was performed by residents of the British settlement, and, as they themselves claim, without instigation on the part of our officers. It remains to be seen whether the British Lion will consider himself insulted by this capture, as in the case of Mason and Slidell. As one of the redskins admits to the killing of 18 women and children, he will be a fit subject for British protection. It is thought that since these captures the remainder of the band will surrender." PEN AND SCISSORS "--WIGFALL, who was reported dead, was only drunk. He has recently charged that some of the Southern farmers were actually burning their wheat rather than sell it to the Government at five dollars per bushel."
