Native American Data

Detroit, June 12 -- We have been credibly informed that the Indians between Chicago and the country occupied by the Winnebago, chiefly Pottawatomie have planted no corn this year; and that the traders and those most acquainted with their habits and policy, believe that this fact indicates hostile intentions. It is said that they never take the trouble to plant corn when they believe that they will not be permitted to gather it in peace; or when they think they will be too busily engaged in more important concerns at the gathering season. Other Indians in the vicinity of Chicago, it is said, have not planted. Gaz.
