It is probable you have heard that the Yankees on Tioga shot Edward Gobin; this has put a stop to all business in that country & they since say he was the wrong person, they meant to shoot the Surveyor, Henry Donnell. There are forty men in arms on the Tioga, from Sugar Creek and other parts. Gillet, sometime after Gobin was shot, came with upwards of thirty persons on to the tract in the name of Maak Wilcocks, and cut the hay. The person it is leased to fears they will take his life, and for sometime has kept to his house. I am informed that at Tioga Point they have shot and burnt an effigy of Henry Donnell, and threatened that if he or any other officer should go into the county they should not leave it alive. They have stopped travellers and made them give an account of themselves. One of the settlers is now in Williamsport, who had leased a tract of land; he fled the country fearing his life would be taken, and numbers have under like apprehensions removed into the state of New York.
