t was a cold-blooded butchery of wo
tuen-and children in-the absence of all the
warriors of the village. Oa the night of
the 12th and 13th, the letter states, a war
party Yancton Sioux Indians, located at
the time of Wood's Bluffs, situated about
sixty miles from this place-Belleview
.;The men and .warriors had left the camp
on a hunt;andtje Sinux, soon after they
reached the camp, discovered that they
only had women and children to contend
with. The slaughter was terrible- se
venty three were kiiled,;and nineteen mor
tally wounded. Two men made their es
cape-one of them Joseph Lafleeche, a
trader in the employ of Mr. Peter A.
Sharpy, and at the time' in charge of a
stock of goods.
He ran from the scene of blood bare
footed, and arrived at Belleview with both
feet frozen Mr. Sarpy and Maj. Miller,
the present agent, despatched a party of
men to ascertain the facts, and they con
firmed on their return, the report of La
ileche. They also reported that five of
.the Sioux Indians had been- killed, no
doubt stabbed by the Omaha sqaws. Go
.ing twenty mites further than the ground
of the massacre, they found the place
where the goods of the tradier had been
divided among the robbers.
It seems, adds the letter, that fate is
against the Omaha Indians. Four or five
days- before this event' took ~ place, one
lodgecamping at Cabanne's old trading
house, was attacked by a war party of
Ayonas, commanded by the well known
chief White Cloud, and four of the men
wounded, and the woman killed.
Another letter from Fort Scott, in the
Republican, stales that the Sac and Os
age indians have recently held a council
j* in the Osage nation, the object of which
was to unite their forces and influence, to
rob and plunder the whiten, possibly un
der the- impression that they could obtain
aid from -Mexico.
The Osages and Creeks are also about
eommencing hostilities. I
