them in tin neighborhood where they
killed . two brotlu rs luiiiu.'tl Win!, who
were trivliuj not far from the head
of the Dcmnoines r'vpr. My there
wore only twelve men nnd n boy ned
pobahly 13 years, from which it seem
p.Mlwhltf ihnt four or five of the original
party hnJ left, not liliiiijr the business in
whic't they were enirnged. Ink-pn-dutn

learn d ; but t'ley suppose, not without
r aon, their t in inn to the Inn. Is ceded in
(hat treaty as pooJ as that of any of thoso
who jiiu'd it.
A part, if not nil of them, were prns
cnl at the li ne of the payment last rum
mer or Fall, nud it is said expressed
in i toll dis.sntwfuctioii because they were
not 'allowed to hnre in the annuities.
The? 'ent refused to give them n share,
became they ha I not planted on the We-
rtv. in-y imvo told some of those
V.ho linve convened with them llmt ns
they wer. puiMti;?; n house mt far from
the Little Si ms rivor. in Iowa, n dog
C.iitie out and bit one of them, who then
allot the do. Soon after this n oiuniiny
of white men tame upon them, and took
f . tnl them nil tin ir guns, and then beat
them with sticks or whips, ami so drove
them off. Hiving no menus of obtaining
a 8ubii.iteiiee without guns, ufter stiller ing
soiniy time, they determined to supply
theine!ves by tnkin guns wherever they
could And them. After they had obtain
ed a pinial supply, a mnii from w ose
bo ise they hn I taken a gun came out nud
shot nt them, without, however, hurting
them. They then shot him down, and
from tint tiint proceeded to murder such
families as ihey mm with. The report
0.1110:1 j the Dakota nt Tain aee, more
than a week niro, was that they bad kilUd
between thirty and forty white persons,
an I h id am mj them four female prison
ers throe women and a girl. Some of
the military m n who have been in the
region where the murders wer commit
ted, and returned to Fort Ridgely, say
tltat ronTV-ix dead bodies have been
f innd. nnd that as many as fii-ty may
have been killed.
Sojii after the newi of the first mur
der reached rujutazee, an intelligent
gentleman of that neighborhood with
whom I was conversing, told me that I n
pvd.ita and his party, having supplied
them .elves with horses, ammunition, &c .
would go up the Big Sioux river, to the
h"nd of it, and then tip the James or Jac
ques river, to join iheimelves to the north
ern Shu ik-ton-wan; nnd this is highly
probable, as when last heard from, about
th lh inst., they were not far from the
lied Pipeitoin1 nuarrv. It is not proba
ble that they will ogam approach the whit
settlements for some months, ns plunder
aeeim 1 1 have been a principal object rn
want they have done, ami they are said
to be abundantly supplied.
ln Moux wno receive annuities are
rmre di p spJ to take part with the whites
than wita these renegades of their own
p'ople; and av they would nci feel nt
a'l aggrieved if the American should kill
Ink-pa-duta and his whole party. Those
of ns who have our families among the
Indians do not apprehend danger from
thpin Unless some of them are wantonly
ni ml Ted by some of our countrymen
Of this there was and still is danger
in the excited Mate of feeling on the fron
tier. Some of them have been chas!
and badly used, nnd if thev bad
not been more prudent and forbearing
than civilued men usually are, much blond

Some will suppose that soldiers ought
to go immediately in pursuit of ihe mur.
derers. It is but fair to suppose that the
officers of the army understand their own
business much letter than civilians do.
Those of us whoe families are most ex
posed, will fep much sttferif this business
is con hii't d by the olTicers of the regu

From the unusual cooWss of this Spring,
we cannot expect auffieient grass on the
prairies to subsist team nixl dragoou hors

this is the rase, it is not probable that any
aoldiers sent in pursuit of Iuk-pa-duiii
W'H overtake Lim.
It it rery desirable that immediate
measures lie iakn lo recover ihe prison
rrs Thrt most likely menus of accom-
fli'diing this would be to send a party of
riendly Sioux to get them, as it i not
improltnble ihey would b murd-reil if
their captor hou'd o an army of white
men approaching. I have been told that
Little Cow has expressed a willingness
to lead a party to bring them in. If he
