Indian Outrages



Laramie, January 12. - A mail party, from here to Fort Phil. Kearney, was attacked yesterday by about thirty Indians. The party escaped with the loss of their wagons and mules.

Up to the 5th inst. No more Indian demonstrations had occurred in the vicinity of Fort Phil. Kearney.

Two companies of cavalry and four infantry have been sent to Fort Reno, and will probably go to Fort Phil. Kearney. The 30th infantry are en route here. All companies of the Second cavalry are concentrating here rapidly.
