any other case in Texas. All our late accounts
confirm the fact, that since the rangers were
butidvd t!.-c Indian are renewing their predatory
injuie;ii?i with alarming frequency.
IVr.T CiiOGiiA.v, Texas, April 7, 1853.
I have just returned from one of the most ar
iuous and exciting scouts I have ever made. We
iiai been robbed twice hereby the Indians with
in four -months. They took down a panel of my
stable lot r.nd led oat nine of my finest torses.
It was one of the darkest and most blustering
nights of the season, and the robbery must have
-been committed between 9 and 10 o'clook. The
next morning I started with 17 men in pursuit.
Failing to discover a trail, I proceeded to the
.post on the road of the Clear Fork of the Bra
zoe, theuce to the Indian Agency, half-way be
tween, Phantom Hill and Belknap. Up to this
point I could hear nothing of the robbery, ex
cept the opinion entertained by the Agent, Mr.
Mem, and all the friendly Indians which con
iurred with my own that the robbery had been
cuinmited by Witchetas.
While at the Agency a parly of that tribe,
under their principal r v.r-chief, came to surren
der some stolen horses they had previously pro
mised to Stem they would do. The horses they
brought in w-cre so indifferent and broken down,
that it was evident they were acting in bad faith,
:tud that this was only intended as a subterfuge.
I was not disposed to be trifled with in this
manner ; the Agent had also lost all patience
with them. It was accordingly agreed to detain
the chief and the principal portion of his party
consisting oi nine warriors and several women,
as hostages, until the whole of the property sto
len should be brought in. Mr. Stem announced
tj them our determination, and told them I
meant to carry them into Belknap and hold
them as prisoners, permitting two of the num
ber to return to the tribe and convey the talk"
we had given them. Though I fully expected
a break" on the announcement, which would
result in the death of Mr. Sem or myself, or
both indeed, I would not have insured either
f our lives at 100 per cent. we were compel
led to face the danger with comparative indif
ference. Any manifestation of fear or suspi
cion would have increased the chances of their
resorting to the desperate alternative of "a
rush" for liberty, plunging their knives into
whomsoever interrupted their passage.
As soon as I told them they were prisoners, I
rose from the bear-skin on which I had been sit
ting facing them, and mounted my horse, at the
aiue time drawing my pistol, and motioning
them to go to their camp. The chief requested
that I should dismount, that he wished to speak.
1 did so and took a seat on a stool near by. lie
motioned me to sit in my former position on the
ground. I did so, at the same time drawing
my knfl'e, under pretence of cutting tobacco to
smoke, He rose, addressed a few remarks to
me about the difficulty of restraining his young
men from stealing, &c., and suggesting that it
would be Letter that he should return to his
tribe. This I refused. He then seemingly yield
ed to his fate, approaching me by the hand,
lifted me from the ground and embraced me,
tirst pointed to heaven and to ourselves, to indi
cate that the Great Spirit witnessed the proceed
ing. I told them I would not hold them as
close prisouers, but merely guard against their
escape, by placing sentinels around their camp.
Meantime 1 encamped my command near theirs,
and took from them all the arms I could find.
They retired to their tents at dark, manifesting
not the slightest intention of an attempt to es
cape. The moon shone as bright as day. I had post
ed two distinct guards over them, of six men
each, without sentinels. I had been up and mo
ving about camp until twenty minutes before
twelve. At 12, the sentinels were relieved.
The sentinel posted more immediately over their
camp, had gone near one of their tents to count
the number present, while the corporal of
the guard, the o'.d sentinel and a citizen who
had accompanied me, stood near, looking on.
Suddenly one of the Indians rushed from his
eat toward the sentinel, and presenting a pis
tol, fited. This ssemed to be the signal for the
general "break." As the sentinel turned to re
treat up the slope towards his companions, the
chief, Ko-we-aka, rushed from hie tent, threw
himself upon the back of the retreating senti
nel, and with his knife inflicted several wounds
before he was shot down by the old sentinel.
The rest succeeded in effecting their escape,
running in different directions and answering
shots fired at them with yells of defiance. The
i hlef, as was discovered, on searching the tents,
had purposely sacrificed himself, his wife, and
boy seven years old. The wife and child, whom
he had requested on the evening before, to talk
m and give them assurance of their safety, were
lodnd lying in their tent side by side, as if in
deep sleep, but stabbed to the heart. The wife
had consented to her fate, as we were informed
two old women, who had attempted to escape.
he seemed to have received the fatal blow
without a struggle both were carefully cover
ed up to the breast, the -child lying upon its
mother's arm. The chief's moccasins were
found near their heads a sign, the Indians told
u-, that he did not mean to leave the spot alive.
Nothing iu romance or history that 1 have ever
read, approximates to this act of devotion and
self-sacrifice. Cooper could never have ventu
red to paint such a scene. The bright moon
lighting up the beautiful countenance of the
mother for she was beautiful and young with
her innocent boy by her side, and the blood still
cozing from their ghastly wounds thehusDand,
lather and warrior, still stretched upon the sod;
the bloody knife still grasped in his hand, look
ing terrible even in death ; the sentinel not five
feet from him, his cold blue eye looking to Hea
ven, while the figures of the soldiers hurrying
hither nnd thither in search of thev knew not
hat, with occasional, but mistaken cries, indi
eating gome discovery. The whole made an en
durin impression on my mind. I bad witnes
