Later from Oregon and the Sandwich Islands
San Francisco, April 13. The brig "Susan Abigail" brings us one day's later news from Oregon. A company of 350 regulars re-took the Cascades from the Indians with a loss of only two men. The men in the Block House would very soon have surrendered but for the timely arrival of the military. Fifteen Indians, mostly chiefs, were taken prisoners, have been Court Martialed and sentenced to be shot. The steamer "Mary" is not burned, as reported. An attempt was made when the Cascades was taken, but by the promtness of her engineer, who cut her moorings, she escaped. It was not known how many Indians have been killed, but fifteen bodies have been found. The Cascades is all destroyed except the Block House and one other building.
