Feb. 13. 1SU0. .Sin; In obedience to n rssolntiun of the House of Hepreientativc8 of the 13th inbtnnt, I have the honor to report, that Major General .Scott has pro ceeded to the theatre ul hostilities in Florida, with full nutbority to call into the lield such a force as ma v be necessary to subdue the Seminole Indians and also with instructions to inquire into the nitu-j anon ni i itc ureeKS,anu io iokc nil proper measure to prevent or suppress any hustillitios mediated or coin mi 1 1 oil by them. The latciM accounts from tbe Creel; country justify tho belief that the great body of tbe Indians of that tribo hava no intentions ol committing outrages upon our citizens, though it is probable that eomo of tbe young men may have joined the Scminoles. Itut of this fact tho Depart ment has no authentic evidence. If the operations in Florida did not require the presence of all tho disposable troop6 of the United States which can readily be concentrated in ttiat quarter, 1 should certainly think it proper, under , existing circumstances, to tlntiun u respectable force in the Creek country as lung as tin excite ment among the Indians continues. Hut this can not bo done for the want of means; nnd as General Scott has power to call for any millilia force that he may deem necessary, and as he is near the Creek country, and can judge correctly of their intentions, it seems more proper to permit him to adopt the requisite measures, then to act upon the subject here. I am not aware that any further legilatinn, in connection with this subject, it necessary, except wlmt mny reUin h, tj,n increase of thn numericnl i strength of the Army, or to tho roniuvul or tiio Creek Indians. The question of an increase ol the Army has been already presented to tho Depart ment by tho Committee on Military AfHiiri., and'n rcpoit will be transmitted ns soon as al! the lie cesbary information can bo obtained. Tbo remo val of tbo Creeks I consider of indispensable neces sity. Hut there are already existing appropria tions, providing tho nccesfary funds for the pre sent, and others wi 1 bo asked for of Congress as soon as it ia ascertained tbey tbey will be needed. Arrangements are, and for some time have been, in progrcs for the removal of the Creeks. These have not been as successful in their operation as was desirable. Should, however, theso Indians continue much longer to decline removing, and to disturb the tranquility of the country where they arc situated, a just regard to their own existence as well as to the peaeo of our citizens, will require the adoption of more energetic ineanurcs, and per haps the application of other principles to their condition. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, LEWIS CASS. Hon. Jamks K. Pols:, Speaker of the Iluusc of Representatives. At'otVTA, Feb. 10.

We extract from the Donaldsnuvillc, La. Cagle of the 13. h Feb. tho following important intelli gence. "Wo learn from a respectable person, arrived here, that the Cunnnclie and several other tribes of Indiana havo declared war against Texas, and will second the 'prepations of Gen. Santa Anna, who i now advancing on St Antonio at the bead of 0000 men and 25 pcices of artillery. The In dians li rrc, it is said, amounts to 10,000 warriors and 5,000 cavalry. This report accords perfectly well with the departure ofthofllh regiment of U.S. troops from Jefferson barracks, for tbo Mexican fonticr,wbere lliey aro to bo joined by Gen. Gaines, who is to ta!0 the command." The disatfeciun of the Cuniitnclie Indiomus alo stated in an article which we pubinlM on Tuesday last: according to the Arkansat Advocate, they had torn up the ticaty lately entered into by them with the Commissioners of tho U. S. nnd exhibited n bostils attitude. Santa Anna, perhaps, has offered tho numerous bonis of Indians, who inhabit our frontiers and tboso of Mexico, the whole of Texas as a reword for their service, incase they should expel tbe colonists. The frontiers of Louisiana and Arkansas would require a large force to keep the Indians in awe, and even then bo subject to tbo depredatory excur sions of the savnges. If this news prove- true, the whites will be ex pelled en mtiisa from the country, nnd the Toma hawk will flurisb over tbo soil of Texas. Col. s'enf. Florida.
