LATEST ABOUT SITTING BULL

Chicago, January 21st - The following was received at military headquarters yesterday

St Paul, January 20th - News just received by way of Fort Buford from Allison, the scout, is to the effect that the larger part of Sitting Bull' band, consisting of 60 lodges, is now on it's way to Buford to surrender.  Sitting Bull himself with 40 Lodges has moved Northward, and is doubtless by this time across the Canadian line.  He has been persuaded to this course by a man named Thompson, a deserter from the Canadian police who lives in Sitting Bull's camp and who has adopted Indian habits.  I suggest that representatives in regard to the conduct of this man should be made to the British authorities.  I sent orders to General Ruger to suspend the march of the (Illegible) column.

It will be seen by the above that the troops are not to be permitted to pursue Sitting Bull across the Canadian border.
