[270] radicals, who wish to imitate the Whites, has fallen to Colonel Adair, a son of the murdered chief, and Colonel Boudinot, a son of Strong Buck.

Dressed in English attire, Colonel Boudinot might pass for a southern White. This young Mestizo speaks with force and writes with point; but his accomplishments are causes of suspicion to the ignorant Cherokees, not one in five of whom can understand an English phrase. It is a saying in Vinita, that the son of Strong Buck is rather White than Red.

The scare of which we heard at Olathe, on the Kansas frontier, is an incident in. this tribal feud. Colonel Boudinot is in Washington, but Colonel Adair is living with his nation near Vinita. On Christmas Day, Lewis, a son-in-law of Colonel Adair, invited some of his friends to a carouse. Ross tried to spoil their sport. Consena, a deputy-sheriff, and three other Indians of their party, rode to the place, pretending they were sent for to assist in keeping order; and as the radicals arrived they took possession of their arms and whisky-flasks. Some yielded readily; but two of Adair's party, Tom Cox and Jack Doubletooth, refused to give up .270
