Important from Council BlUfla- We had the pleasure last evening of a half hour's conversation with Mnj. J. Miller, Indian Agent at Council Bluffs, who arrived from Weston on the Tobacco Plant. Maj. Miller informs us that a good deal of apprehension was felt by the Ototes and Mahas, and not a little by the whites, from a threatened1 visit from * the Ynncton Sioux. Early in the spring a party of the above named band of Indians came down ioto the Maha village and murdered two squaws. The Mahas nnd Otoes arel neighbors, and though ancient enemies, hive latterly united for the.purpose of mutual defence. On this occasion a party, composed of the two tribes, went in pursuit of the Sioux, and killed eight*; losing on their own side one Maha and one Otoe. They returned to their villages with the scalps of the en,-emy, and subsequently some of the traders among them were so impolitic as to expose these scalps to view as trophies of the bravery of their friends. This latter act led to ...
