At the time of writing (Tuesday
evening) nothing further in re
gard to the outbreak has come to
hand, but it is unreasonable to
suppose that the savages have not
committed depredations, and that
tne whi e men they may have
encountered have not fallen vic
tims to their savage and murder
The (Jhiricauuas number not
more man oau ail tola, ducks,
women and children, and the
number of warriors who have left
the reservation is stated to bo but
fifty. But the amount of deviltry
this number can commit is almost
impossible to conceive.

Gatewood. There have bjen to
complaints made by them, and
they were apparently satisned

from Clitton ninety miles, and it

wagon together with several oth
ers, who were firing pistols in
honor of the occasion, and it is
claimed that the fatal shot was
entirely accidental, while some
think otherwise. Justice Fournes,
who was present, caused the arrest
of Trejiiliol and charged him,
before Justice Frazee, with mur

commenced Saturday, and was
concluded Sunday, District At
