Direct from the Indian country.
The Fort Smith (Ark.) Times,
of the 6th instant, says:
We learn from Mr. George M. Aird
, direct from the Seminale agency, that Opothleyoholo had collected together about 4,000 or 5,000 Indians
, and about 1,300 negroes, who had gone to him with the hope of being freed — When Gen. Cooper
, at the head of the Creek
regiments, with other Indians
, amounting to near 5,000, advanced upon Opothleyoholo's camp, his followers fled, leaving all behind.
Opothleyoholo left with a few followers, and has either gone to Salt Plains, or to Kansas
Most of his followers are with Col. Cooper
, and he has a very large Indian force now with him Col Cooper
sent a man after Opothleyoholo, but he had not come in when Mr. Aird
left.--All is quiet now.
have all the time remained firm friends to the South
