An Indian War in Michigan.
--A private letter from a gentleman residing in Bridge-hampton, Sanilac, county, dated the 6th inst., states that considerable excitement prevailed in that vicinity, on account of the assembling of a large number of Indians
(about 160) near there, who were threatening an attack upon the settlers, declaring that ‘"the country belonged to them, and they meant to have it again."’ The settlers were engaged in casting bullets and making preparations for defence.
Can it be that we are on the eve of an Indian war in Michigan
There are several thousand Indians remaining in the State
, and such a prospect would be anything but agreeable.
We think it more probable, however, that this is a local difficulty, growing out of land occupancy, which mutual explanation will arrange.--Detroit Tribune.
