     On the first of July last, Negosheik and Negoneg_, two Indians, were hung at Norwalk, Huron co., Ohio, in pursuance of a sentence of court, pronounced against them in May last, for the murder of Wood and Bishop on Carrying River.
     The two Indians (says the W. Reserve Chronicle) who were executed, at Huron, for the murder of Wood and Bishop, suffered the sentence of the law with much unconcern, any further than that they hated to appear before the Great Spirit with halters about their necks, and should have preferred being shot or tomahawked, and one would have been glad to live till he had killed six more white people, in order to make up the even number of twenty, having as yet, killed but fourteen.
