Oneida Indians. About 140 of the Oneida Indians passed through here on the canal on Thursday last, on their way to Green-Bay. They have sold to the state all their interest in the Indian Lands at Oneida, and have accepted of a bounty of $40 each. They are under care of an agent appointed by government, and are transported at the expense of the state. We are informed that several of them had deserted and returned back since they left Oneida: and it would not be surprising if more of them should do so before they reach Buffalo. Syracuse Gazette.
