Tiiuos special. ] P. (1. Hatcher arrhcd liom
Sononi at a lalo hour last night , The follow
ing additional details of the mnssxcro of the
Americans by hostile Indians ate given by
him. Mr. Hatcher Is the owner of what is
known an the American i audio , near
Naeasori , Sonorn. On the 1Mb lust. Indians
jumped the ranchc and ran off all the hor-es.
Hatcher followed , and while In pursuit cn-
counteied the suivlvois , with a detachment
of Lieut , Davis. The stoiy as told by JIcDer-
mott , who was not killed as picvioiibly re
ported , Is as follows :
A paity consisting of Messrs. JfcDcrmott ,
Hhiltlson , ( iandicw , a German named Trcd ,
and Mrs. Hello Ua\is left Naeasoii the 16th
lust. They vereall mouitcd ] on ildlng ani
mals , and wcixs well armed , mid the outfit ,
which was a good one , was packed on buiros.
The country thiough which they had to pa s
wan \ery lough , and they had made about
twenty-lhe miles when , about a o'clock in
the afternoon of the 17th , they were suddenly
attacked by about thirty Indians In ambush.
AB fcoou na the lirlng began Jfattibon and the
rSennan turned and ran. A bullet from the
Indians knocked the cartridge bolt clear off
the Geiman , leaving him with but one cait-
ridgo. Mrs. Ia\is xvas mounted on a horse
nnd r.i'uicd with a double-barrelled hhot-gun.
Quickly dliinountinghho lired the shut-gun at
an IinliiUi who was near her. AltJie. rcjiort of
lier gun her horse stalled to run liout her , but
she was quick enough to vnatcii a sack of am
munition from the saddle before thcanimal gel
away. She lirui n couple of Miota , when she
notk-cd McDcrmolt lighting from n cly ex-
jKs ) > eil position. She orderctlhini back where
ho liad some cover , and tlio light went on.
AYhcn ( tandrcxv feu < > he wnttohlin and sc-
cured his ritlc and belt of munition. 15y this
time tlio Indians were pressing them so
closely that the plucky twain were obligwl to
rcticat. This they did in good order , nnally
succeeding in gaining the brush.
The Indians then juocceded to loot the
pack-train , killed live burros and one horao ,
and took such of tlio provisions anil goods a-s
they desired. From concealment McDcnnott
had nt one time the drop on two Indians , but
ilrs. Davis said they were out of tlio light ,
and 11 they could escape with their lives they
had butter do bo than attempt to clean out a
baUh of lifty or blxty hobtiles , so McDeimott
did not iire. As soon cs night caiuc the
two fought to escape. Being
unfamiliar with the country they
wandered aimlessly till morning and part of
