Information, by Express


[May 12, 1774. By an express, just arrived from Fincastle county, we are informed that very lately three or four skirmishes happened between the white people and the Shawanese Indians. We cannot affirm what occasioned the dispute, but are told one white man had taken some small matter from the Indians, which irritated them to arms; but were soon repelled by the other party, who killed eleven of them, seven of which they scalped. Another of the Indians was terribly wounded in the groin, and it was imagined, when this express came away, that he could not possibly recover.]
