him. Thia famous Indian surrendored him
self about a year add a half ago to Captain
Kelly j at Fort K amath, where he had lived
ilp to tho present time. The object of his
surrender was, no doubt to get his wife and
child, Who ,,ere capWcd about a month
previously by a party who were returning
from fort Klamath, after making a treaty
with the Klamath . an I Modoc Indians
Mitdarao Palina, with others who were tlieu
made prisoners, were .taken to. Fort Vancou
ver, where they were kept until la3t summer
when they were restored to their liege lords.
Und Palina been trp.itcd as he deserved, ho
would 'have "been hung by the nock instead
of being fed oa Uaulo Sam's rations. .Tliere
is not an Indian east of the- Cascade moun
tains who. has committed more depredations
on the whites than has Palina ; nor is there
one among (be Snake tribes, who has the in
fluence 0 this chief. : -A jear "ngo Superin
tendent Fluntington treated with Palina and
his bind of Snakes, numbering about Bixl.v
warriors, by the. terms of which ihey were
compelled to romuin on the Klamth Reser
vation, The disappearance 'oftho whole
band Is only another proof of .the regard In
dians have for treaty stipulations. During
the last four years ibis, band of Indians has
bf on a terror to the settlers on tho lino of
the road to Canyon City. It wns these same
devils wh.p fought and defeated a part of
Cnpt. Drake's command three years ng,
.when Liout. Watson, was killed; and who
almost evoryyenr visited the Warm Spripg
Reservation and helped, themseves to each
property as they could Conveniently get off
with. Palina will no doubt reiurn to hjs
old field of plunder between hero and Cip
ypn.City and-we would advise travelers on
. that, road to keep a' watchful eye to their
Mock and their scalps; The following Is the
paragraph from which we obtain the news,
published in the Stntintl: '
From a letter from Liou,t, Oatman, written
from Fort Klamath, we loirn that Palina,
the Snake-Chief, with atlof'his "tillicums,"
has left this Indian Roservaiion, for pans
unknown j it is believed by the Klamath.3
that ho has gone to join Hpwlock, The
Klamath? followed after him, as far as Silver
and Summer Lakes, and could. find no trace
of him. ' We wnulrt unorcaat tn.ihaja.ir&vnl-
ing from Red Bln(T and, Chioo, through the
Snakb country, that it would bo well for
- them to keep a sharp lookout for those ffco
' hooters. : '. . .
