We had an express in this morning from salmon River bringing sorrowful news. The Snakes and Bannocks made a break upon the Brethren at the fort and drove off nearly all ther stock. Left them but 4 Horses and a few Yoke of Cattle. They killed two or three of the Brethren and wounded several more. They wounded Capt Smith. The Indians were lead by a white man named Powell.
