News from tiie Upper Missouri.?
On the 4th inst. Messrn. Vnsquez and
Danphin arrived in St. Louis from the
Union Fur Company's post, nt Medicine
Creek, 1400 miles up the Missouri river. !
and 44 miles below the. mouth of To ton '
river. They left on the 11th of March,
and came down on Ihe Haydce. The
weather had been very mild during the
winter, and there was veiv little snow nn
the plains, Buffalo were very plenty on
both sides of the Missouri, as far down as
the mouth of Whito river. The Sioux
were busily engaged in killing these ani
mals for their robes.
In November last, Mr. Dauphin, with
a party of men; was attacked while en-1
camped nt night, at the forks of Whito
river, by a War party of Pawnees; .md
was badly wounded and taken prisoner,
but afterwards escaped. The attack was
sudden and Mr. D's men deserted him.
vlll his property fell into the hands of the
yv party ot Sioux, while engaged in
hunting buffalo on the Cheyenne river,
in January last, were attacked by asupe- '
rior body of Crows, and a severe fight
ensued. Eight warriors on each side
wero killed, and the Sioux lost 150 head
of horses. The Sioux had become greatly
exasperated from this deleat, and were
preparing to make war upon the Crows.
The Yancton Sioux, also, were fitting
out war parties against their old enemies,
the Pawnees. It is feared that California
emigrants, travelling on the north side of |
the Platte, may suffer from the depreda
e ii i" - >
Mima oi muse nosuie panics.
The Sioux ngent, Major Ilalton, was
expected (o leave for St. Louis shortly.
THie Union Fur Company would prob-1
ably send down 4000 packs of robes this
spring. They had been very successful
in their winter trade.

How little is known generally of the following
detail of circumstances in the early
history of these States. We copy 1
from tho Philadelphia North American : j
In the spring of 1783, the wester i

Frankland, of which the famous old John
Sevier, one of the Captains at King's
Mountain, and the hero of many an In- j
dian war, was elected Governor. North
Carolina,in this conjecture, ncted with '
great moderation; but she asserted her ;
authority and maintained it in arms du- ;
ring a period ot* thrco years; at the end !
of vhich period she succeeded, not with- j
out some bloodshed, in forcibly putting I
down the revolutionary government and j
reducing the people to submission. Mcr- i
ciful in victory, she yet excepted from j
her act of amnestj' and submission Gov- [
ernor Sevi6r, who was arrested for high |
treason, saved his lift by luckily making
his escape from prison, and only succeeded
, six months afterwiuds, when elected
to the Legislature bv tho reconquered
counties, in procuring a reversal of his
New Brunsunck wishing to be annexed.
There was an important debute in the
New Brunswick Colonial Parliament on
the 5th instant, of the "state of the province,"
in the course of which Mr. End
made a glowing picture of the desolation
nnd ruin of the country, which he attributed
to the Colonial policy of the mother
country, nnd openly advocated annexation
to the United States as the rerftVdy.
He treats the "gngging despatch" of the
Colonial Minister as a hoax. Tho St.

Rays, "a master spirit is required to cmbody
the scattered opinions of the people
and to prive thorn substflnco in the shnpe
of a well defined principle, that can sfnrt
upon some broad question." Gradually,
but not very slowly, the minds of the colonists
are preparing for the event, which
seems inevitable foreshndowed in the
present discounted muttcrings.
It is told of Char'cs Lvmb, that one
afternoon having taking a seat in a crowded
omnibus, a stout gentleman looked
in and politely asked:
