The following lamentable information is from the Augusta Courier of January 4: Nat. Int.
'A passenger in the stage last night, who came through the Cherokee Nation, says that there was great excitement there. Some person who had drawn a tract of land, on which were improvements, attempted to take probably violent possession, and was resisted by the Indians, and that two families consisting of nine persons, had been massacred by the enraged savages. He says the Georgia Guard is in close pursuit of the murderers.'
