It is not known with certainty what induced them to return without dcing mischief.— The most infamous attempts continue to bo made by the Rri’ish to incite the Indians against us An hundred dcl'ars are offered for every trader, cowJinver, or other A» ir.'.’tican found in tUfir c« turj', and the like stmt for captor* <1 negr*t.s.

It i« to attack our convoys, ar.d plunder the frontier below Fort Hawkins, when our ar my shall have passed through to the aid of Gen. Jackrcn. A grand council of the friendly Creeks was held a few days ago at Cowetau on the Chaiahooche.

About sun set, the eneinv hoisted sail ai d appeared to be standing up the river. The troop of caval ry* v,-as ordered to reconnoitre, and if not opposed by a superior force, to enter the town. From a want of concert er orders, an aUinii tv .is produced, and an order given to retreat,-.- ■ 1 wo timux is, in advance, notwithstanding, entered the town, tX. found it evacuated, by the enemy. Although the enemy got under weigh before sun ret, the whole Mji.adron was discovered in the .nor ping at anchor in line, just above the town, the lower vessels within a half mile; tx cep: a large sleep and schooner, and many barges, which were sect* by the vidette* 12 miles higher up, and just r ppodte Bayne’s Island. 1 o gain some iohu niatinn of the fc.au ar.d racial of their veer cl*, their force and pi • .bah!.: destination, and to ascertain tbs injury done by tin ir. whilst in poss. s. . sioti of the town, 1 entered it with about thirty cavalry at two o’ciocL today .1 found all the Houses, had he.-n pii Jnjjcd r.f . very thin-, erreept some few pie ces oMunitnrc.

In fact they have taken away every thing which could be useful to the ft. Many negroes, which wen feft in town, and on |he pUnl rations of Messrs. Lawrence nnd James Mu«c have gore over to them—they profess bn unwillingness to take away any negroes by force, and indeed, in three instances, ' they acted upon that principle*, for 1 found three slaves who had been in town the wholo time ; two of which I canned to be brought out. It may be, and I have no doubt of it, a finesse / as one of the fellows brought out, • belonging to Dr BrockeobfoOgh, is very aft. ful and cunning.

T! :» nnld and unlooked fo* movement bx;, baffled all my schemes. I had antietp.’tnd from his bold and rapid as. ecu’ that he would have penetrated as high as the narrows of the river, and there I had strong hones of being able to make him feel us. *1 leam from an intelligent man of this place, that the •xpeubion was commute dedbvCom. Part y and col. Malcorsb. The number of troops did not much, it any, ex recti ‘00, but it was evident they had other treoos in vessels from which they were not landed. Ot the number landed here, Uic»e were 8 companies of 50 ea. ii, of negroes in uniform, commanded by white officers.— They were said to be Virginia and Mary land negroes«ruined at Tartgi r Island.— The above accounts are obtained from the only Inhabitant cf •his place who remained wlrile the cr.vmy had possesion of the town He is «n iiueU.genr fiadnb.it.-want man—Ha gat hit informatibn from three sentinels who were posted to protect his proper ly from pillaee ; they differed in the number of troops emnloi ed in the expedition from j lnGO to 2100—but the-.- all agreed that *he ! whole force in our waters w«s here, ai d that tftgyrvgu'e loss from desertion since •heir arrival in the Chesapeake was about three hundred—They f.u’ther agreed in staline that the troops had liven hoakhy and that but little loss had been sustained from sickness. “ Cel- M"S®, has under his command he' !r.w thin about ftbdmen, will give me the ear liest information of the enemy's leaving the river, or of their attempting to plunder be low, in which event l shall move down to his awMnnce ; but if, as I expect, they are t rally leaving 'he Reppnhanm ck, as soon as T am informed of it, l shall take i<j> the line of march for Carnp Carter, with my detach* meat, and discharge Co’.

In* deed his whole course has been marked with the most circumspect caution and evident alum. II,. has never t-tinted himself on land i a single night. An officer remarked here, * that •heir object was to harrass the militia— that they should beat about the rivars for n [ werb. or two longer, and then go into winter - (jbarters. There baa been much wanton * dessractiofi of private property here, in breaking windows, and furniture—and one L deed of damnation has been performed which 1 outdoes all their former atrocities.
