T H E WINI 5 BAG 0 ES A T THE CAPITOL. \ The interview between the W ineba- goes and the President is described very handsomely by a correspondent o f the N a tional IntcU igeneer. T h e address o f ihe old C h ief to the President is highly poeticak We copy as much of tflu arti­ cle os o u r columns- wfll a d m it. An old chief stepped forth into the cen­ tre o f the room, with a long uncouth pipe in his hand, which, after a brief cdre'mo- mal not precisely intelligible, he brought . near the President and waved over his head. It was the calumet of pbiice.— Hqldhig it then Before him', and pointing; to it, he began an haf'angue in low gut­ tural tones, accompanied with much ear­ nest gesture.'
