Snowden, not Mr. W. II. Ward, as itated
ia our last, and killed hatin and three chii
dren. and Mrs. S. they wounded in seven
places, and left her fordead.
After netting the house on fire they took
the children about 200 yards fromt the flames
of their dwelling and shot them, one by one
with arrows, in sigit of their mother. ;and
killed them all before they molested her!
A refinement of torture, this, that oul finds
place in this savage breast, and thait no
civilized being would conceive. She
swooned and has no recollection of the de
parture of the Indians. It is believed she
will recover. She is under care of Dr. J.
On the morning of the 17th they killed
2 soldiers near Wacahootee, and on the
same day, Lieit. Bkitton was in search of
the party, and came upon them while in
ambush. The Indianis fired con his ad
vance, and wounded three men. They
fled precipitately. The citizens and troops
are in searchof them day an-I night. Capt.
Kerr's company of Dragilons has been in
pursit of them, as also Capt. Sewell's
company of Infantry. tnt all unsuccessful.
On the 21st inst. the Indians were at Col.
F. R. Sanchez's plantation. at St. Felasco
hammock. Capt Sew-ll and a party of
citizens had gone out on the hunt after them
and had not returned when the -mail left.

"r. Snowden. after her three children
were deliberately ntirder-d before her
eyes, was, although begging for her life,
shot with a rifle and with arrows, and
stabbed in several places. and left fiar dead.
An arrow has been taken front her, and
another from one of her children; they are
both barbed with iron or steeL something
in the form of a harpoon, and were shot
with such fierce as to go through the body
of Mrs. Snowden. A smill party of five
men were at the Mill. distant half a mile
from Snon' den's %% ho heard the rifles and
yells of the ludians, andl the' screams and
cries for mercy of Mrs. Snowden, but to

and had they gone it) their assistance, it is
altogether probable the whole would have
