If'ESTERN INT ELL IGENCE RICHMOND, Nov. 26 A gentleman jufl returned from the fputh western territory, has fa vored us with the following infor mation : _ O" Sunday the 41)1 inft there ar rived at Knozville eight Indians from the Cherokee nation ; three of tl efe were prir.dpai chiefs, viz. The Standing Turkey, the War rior's Son of KfhVtlaula, and the Hanging Maw, from the beloved town of Ghota. The object of their Vmrrev was to hold a sulk withGo -vernor Blount ; to ad'ure him of the pacific <!ifjwfition of their nation, and to requeil that they may befuf iered to iiunt without niolellation. On Saturday the tenth, thty were lafely ctindutfed to the bank of the river, opposite to the town of Coy •ties, 011 their veinrff home, bv Ma jor George Fmrogood, and a party of gentlemen. i lie Btiva party of Indians stole eight h-orfes from Gamble's flat ion about 12 miles from KnoxHlle. ' On Friday the ninth, two regi ments of territorial troops, under the command of Colonel Landon Carter and Col. Gilbert Chriltian, marched from Knoxville, to guard the iVomie'is, and to build forts and llations Between the Papo Fold and the juii(stiou of the Clinch and Te lle ft e. To the honour of our weft em bre thren, let it that of the 1 wo regiments above-mentioned, (even companies were entirely c»m pofed of volunteers, armed aiid equipped at their own (txpeiic£. On Saturday the lOth, Gefits*al Sevier pui fired his route from Knox ville, escorted by a troop of horfif, raised in Greene county, and com manded by captain Jamej Richard son, to take the command of the frontier army, now amounting to from twelve to fifteen hurfdi ed men. Our informant mentions, that this troop of horse, though embodied, were at leaflf *iqual in inajply and martial appearance, as well as in their uniform,'hel"fes,and other equipments, to any corps of horse he ever law in the regular continental or European armies. On Monday the 12th, the hoofe of lihenezer By rain,on Heaver creek, (a branch os-Clinch) seven miles from Knoxvirfc, was attacked in the morning, about sunrise, by a party of fifteen Cherokee Indites. Thev beat in the window with (.heir roros hawks, and presented two but before they could observe their destined vi&ims, Mr.. Byrstni and Mr. Jefferies, the only two men in the house, fired at the two Indians who appeared at the window, when they both fell, and the Indian party immediately fled. The gallant defenders of their houfhold gods, then went out and found one of the Indians dead, who«( theyfcalped ; they afterwards track ed the fugitives about two miles, fy the blood of their woanded compa nion—here they found a confidcrt ble quantity of blood,*fome human flefh and splinterS of bones j at this fpoi thej ftippofed the wounded In dian expired, aud was carried off by his aftbeiates, as the bloody «£ck was no longer vifibje, Thus the cGol bravery of two re foluce men not only saved their own lives, but preserved a number of women and children, who were at the time in the haufe, from th# butchering cruellies of these re niorfeJefs savages. It deserves to be noticed, that Mr. Byram is up wards of sixty years of age. . Notwithftandingthe contiguity of these depredations to tho feat of ter ritorial government, the inhabitants feeni as unapprehensive of danger as the citizensof Richmond are, and it was with difficulty that Governor Blount, who lives in a retired house, about a mile froin Knoxville, could be prevailed on to accept of a guard, which he limited to fix men. The gentleman who has obliged us with the above inre!]ig?nrr, h«s brought to this city the lcalp of the Indian killed in the attack on Mr. Byram's house. By the custom-house return from Bermuda Hundred, it appears that the total amount of the merchan dise imported and entered there from the firft of July to the thirti eth of September la(fr, is 824,592 dol lais and cents.—And the amount of goods exported duritlg the fame peiiod, is 526,280 dollars and 04 tents.

With rc fpc6t to the prcfent plan, let it luffice to remark, that GuU»rie's Geography lia.s been long acknow ledged to be the b«ft in the Englilh language ; however, the account ot America in it has, from obvious rcafoßi, been very erroneous and defec tive.
