. Intelligence has been received of the killing of a Mexican at Bisbee in the Whetstone Mountains. There were forty-seven Indians. Lieutenant Richards with a detachment of twenty men left Fort Huachuca for Bisbee to take the trail against the murderers of Daniels. John Slaughter and J. J. Patton arrived from Swisshelms and reported the killing of four soldiers by Indians on Tues. day at Guadalupe Canyon. It appears that Captain Lowden with a troop of cavalry bad entered the canyon, and leaving the wagons in charge of a guard of seven men, started out on a scout. While the guard was engaged eating dinner they were surprised by the Indians and four of their number were killed outright. Two of the soldiers made their escape to Cloverdale, and have since joined their command, but no traces of the other can be found. The Indians, after securing the provisions and ammunition of the train, burned the wagons and drove off the horses.
