Piscataqua, Sept. 5th. Since the insult of the enemy at Cochecho, being apprehensive of a numerous body attending them, we've had near 300 men in arms on our frontiers between Kingston & Salmon Falls, but notwithstanding the indefatigable care & pains both of officers & souldiers have made little discovery of them. On the 1st currant about 30 Indians appears at Cape Neddick, where they kill'd John SPENCER, & wounded Dependance STOVER, as they were mowing about 40 rod off the garrison; two more were at work with them, but 7 issued forth from the garrison & fought the enemy two hours, who drew off & kill'd some cattel, ten of which were found, & 30 more are missing. Lieut. HEATH from York with a party of men, went in pursuit of the enemy, of whom as yet no return.
