We .are indebted to a friend fur a copy o
the Oregonian, a handsome weekly paper
published in Portland, Oregon Territory. It
is of the date of Sept. 23d, and was reeeivel
by the last California steamer. We find in
the Oregonian the subjoined 'letter from Mr.
JonN F. Nont.E, son of Mr. John NOble, of
Carlisle, giving details of tly recent terrible
massacre by the Indians oil Boise river.
From the Oregonian
The following* 10(6. from John F. Noble,
a resident of Vancouver, who is now en route
from a visit to the . easfern states 'overland, is
the first detailed account of this anheard-of
butchery we have. been able to obtain. It
appears to us that, every reader who peruses
it will feel his blood rushing hot into his
"good right arm" flu- revenge, and his feel
ings of humanity, if he ever had ally, for the
'poor li . Fatiten Indian' forever eradicated.—
Where are Oregon's federal officers? Where for the
people's intei , est and safety? . We commend
the perusal of this letter to their patriotic at
tention, as they are not "praing men,' and
ask - then' N‘hy they have creptoinlu a corner
and silently allowed the proper time to pass
to strike 'a blow which shall either extermin
ate the race of Indians, or prevent furtlier
wholesale butcheries by these worthless races
resembling the human form? Shame! shame!
shame! on such INhite-li \Trod rulers! Let
the people remember them.
' rMR. NOBLE'S T.Erl'Eli
On the morning of the 22d of August last
a party of 18 men lett Fort Boise flu. the
Purpose of rescuing three ladies and a num
ber of children %vim were supposed to- be in
the hands of a party of -Winn ass" Indians,
(one of the small tribes of Snal:e Indians,
who live on. Boise river,) who attacked Mr.
Alex:Ward's traiu, from Missouri,. ou the
20th of August, about noon, 2,1 miles above
Fort Boise, on the south side of Buis river.
This party, on arriving at the place where
the first attack was made, found the bodies
of Alex. Ward and his eldest son, 'Robert,
Samuel Mullagin, Charles Adams, Wm. Bab
cock, and a Oerman, name unknown
From the statement of the surviving boy,
Newton Ward,'it would appear that no effect
ual resistance was offered by any of the party,
excepting 1)r. Adams and - Aullagin, who
jbu t /ht /in/rely.
Following the trail, in about three hundred
yards, the body of young Amen was found,
a lad of 17 years of age; (he was one of the
seven who came to the rescue On thw,day of
the attack, with Wm, Yantis.) This young
man fought with, great valoy, pursuing the
Indians to the bushes, where lie was killed.
About one hundred yards further on, the
body of Alias Ward was found, having been
shot through the head with a musket ball.—
fler person was much bruised, her hands
showing signs of her . haying fonglit' twist
desperately, to resist the fii'w/i.s.h attacks of
ihese saiqgeS hpon her youthful person.—
The marks of teeth were plainly implanted
upon her left cheek, a hot piece of iron had
been thrust into her private parts, doubtless
whilst alive, to punish her for her resistance,
and their being unable to accomplish their
hellish cads upon one so
,young. Within , a
few rods of this spot, a wagon had been
burned, and the bodies of two dogs found
crisped up.
About fifty yards on, in the brush three
more wagons were burned. The trail was
followed up, and in about xis hundred yards
the L botly of Mrs. White, (the wife of William
White, Who lives in Looking Glass prairie ?
Umpqua' Valley,) was found stripped, of her
clothing and scalped. Her head was beaten
in by clubs, and also a musket ball had
passed through her head. Her . person show
ing signs of the most brutal violence. •
The trail was followed from her, and in a
bout half a mile through tidense thieket of
hrush andThudergroWth, the firth wagon was
foundrhaving• been run .into a• deep ravine
and left.
In about thirty yards further,•came to the
river, upon the north hank of which fwns.dis
covered where' they had been encamped, (it
consisted of sixteen lodges made of willow
lndies . .) Here the body of Mrav-Ward and
three children were found.
Mrs. Ward was lying in the encampment,
in front.of a fire, her person having been rob.
bed of all its 'covering, and 'her body much
cut, and scarred by ° brutish bruises. Tier
face had •it deep wound inflicted by a toma.'
haWlc, which probably caused her death.
ch'i'ldren were upon the fire in,
front of her, hftring erideidly.been.burned a
tieei as it portion of the hair still remained
upon their heads, showing they had been held
by the hair of tbe head-until burned to death,
in front of their mether,.and she doubtless
compelled.' to witness this. whilst they had
their war,danee, and they violated her person.

the sight still more shocking. Several Parts
of limbs were picked up some distance from
the tire, having been dragged away by the
wolves, or the Indian dogs, for several had
been left in the camp by them. .
Having scarce any implements, the bodies
were interred in the best manner possible,
under the circuinstances.
There were still it lad and three children
missinei a diligent search was made for
their, raulies without success. From tire
statements of the sfirviving boy, it was known
that this lad was woutaled and rati to the
bushes, and has probably' since died and it.
is more thhn possible that the three children
are still captives, or reserved for some future
barbarous ceremony.
Front the statement of Mr. Masierson,
(who is a brother of Mrs. Ward and Mrs.
White,) it appears that the booty that the
Indians carried off, consisted of forty one
head of cattle, five horses, and about : 4 .42,000
or $3,000 in money, besides guns, pistols, &e.
NAL This party of seven, finding the In
dians greatly Superior in number, were 0.
bliged to abandon the pursuit. Win. Yantis,
on returning to the !retie of the first attack,
discovered Newton Ward; (a lad about thir
teen guars of ago, the only
