According to the stipulation of several treaties held since it the Pawnee indians in which a has a a.

The for of the u. Forces belong be exploring party were left Pihlik to of the indians. The Pawnee arc paid to have fought desperately and tiv have killed eight of the dragoons. Several Osage prisoners were retaken a the same time from whom it was pretty satisfactorily ascertain a i that to Young Man whom the Pawnee took from the rangers last summer had been killed. These Are Tho Only particulars that our informant was Able to collect. To Days mail or that of sunday next we Hope will furnish the details of this affair. A a the Pawnee have hitherto maintained their supremacy in the boundless Prairies of the West it is to he hoped that the drubbing which they have received from the dragoons will have a Good effect on them and teach Thorn not Only to respect our citizens when trading among them or passing trough their Hunting grounds Butto he less troublesome to the neighbouring Friendly sent year about 460,000 dollars. It is far very far from being certain that the Money paid yearly to the indians contributes to the welfare of the various tribes for whose Benefit it is or ought to be appropriated. Ignorant of our language averse to enduring the labor attending an agricultural life deprived by our Laws of the rights of citizens profiting by few of our Virtues a and suffering by Many of our vices they sink into idleness brutality and intemperance and when they receive their yearly payments they generally become the dupes and the victims of dishonest men. Such has been their lot in almost every state of the Union i these evils if they cannot be entirely j remedied May be greatly alleviated tic deepest Green and the Plains a bul us Are literally speckled with Buffalo. We Are Distant from fort Gibson about 200 Miles which distance we accomplished in ten Days. A great part of the Way the country is Prairie gracefully undulating Well watered and continually beautified by copses and patches of Limber. On our v. A my attention was riveted to the tops of some of the Prairie Bluffs whose summits 1 approached with inexpressible Delight. I Rode to the top of one those Noble Mounds in company with my friends Lieut. Wheelock where we agreed that our Hores instinctively looked und a hired. They thought not of the Rich herbage that was under their feet but with a deep drawn sight their neck Wert loftily curved and their eyes widely stretched Over the landscape that was beneath us. From this elevated spot the horizon was bounded All around us by Mountain streaks of Blue softening into azure As they vanished and the pictured Vales that intermediate Lay were deepening into Green As the Eye was returning from its roaming. Beneath us and winding Ine of March will be resumed and if the i the House according to the order of Baw nees Are As near to us As we have the Day again resolved itself into a Corn Strong reasons to believe from their re cent trails and fires it is probable that within a few Days we shall thrash them or get thrashed unless through theirs a Lacity and fear they elude our search by flying before us to their hiding places. The prevailing policy amongst the officers seems to be that of flogging them first and than establishing a treaty of peace. If this plan were morally right i do not think it practicable for As enemies i do not think they will stand to meet us but As friends i Thiak we May bring them to a talk if the proper Means Are adopted. Vve Are Here encamped on the ground on which judge Martin and servant were butchered and his son kidnapped by them but a few weeks since and the moment they discover us in a Large body they will presume that we Are relentlessly seeking for revenge and they will i Rob Abl be very a by nth a a. J Vve Are Over the Washita the a Rubi a con is we Are invaders of a sacred soil. We Are carrying War in our j front a and a we shall soon see what we i shall see 1 great Praise is due to Gen. Leaven Worth for his Early and a remitted efforts to facilitate the movements of the regiment of dragoons by opening roads from Gibson and Towson to this place. We found encamped at this town two companies of infantry from fort Towson who will follow in rear of the dragoons As far As necessary transporting with wagons stores and supplies and ready at the same time to co operate with the dragoons in Case of necessity. General Leavenworth will Advance with us from this Post but How far he Nav proceed is a 1 to Fth route which we shall take for circumstances alone must decide that Point. We shall probably reach Cantonment Leavenworth in the fall anti one thing is certain in the opinion of one who has already seen something of Indian life and country we shall meet with Many severe privations and reach that place a jaded set of Fellows and As ragged As Jack fall staff a famous band. You Are no doubt inquiring who Are these Pawnee comanches and Sarapa hoes and Why not Tell us All about them their history numbers and limits Are j still in obscurity nothing definite is yet known of them but 1 Hope i shall soon be Able to give the world a clue to them. If my life and health Are preserved i anticipate Many a pleasing scene for my Pencil As Well As incidents worthy of reciting to you and the world which 1 Sli Aii occasionally do As Opportunity May occur.
