Cincinnati, Dec. 14, 18       


A gentleman in this place has favored us with the perusal of a letter dated at Fort Wayne Nov. 21-- from William Wells, Esq., late Indian agent, in which he states that he has conversed with several Indians who were in the battle lately fought on the Wabash, and that from the information they have given him he calculates that the number of Indians killed in the battle is not much short of an hundred; he also states that the Kickapoos and Winebagoes [Winnebago] who, were the principal sufferers, have withdrawn from the Prophet [Tenskwatawa] and gone towards the Mississippi; that the Prophet and the remains of his nation are moving towards white river, and that the Indians are very much dissatisfied with him, and say they will put him to death.
