Indian Outrages



Laramie, January 22. - Twenty-two Indians have fifteen men surrounded at Spring Creek, fifteen miles from Mud Springs.

They ran off Cade & Donaldson's herd of cattle on the 20th inst. They are doubtless the same Indians who drove off the Government herd from Fort Laramie a few days ago.

The weather is intensely cold and pursuit is not intended. Unless these depredations are stopped, soon all the stock in the country will be run off.
