SAVANNAH, May 26.
     MORE INDIAN MURDERS.  -
We learn from a passenger in the steamer General Clinch, Capt. Brooks, from Black Creek, that on Saturday forenoon, between 9 and 10 o'clock, Mr. Forbes's Theatrical company, with some others, were on their way from Picolata to St. Augustine, and within five or six miles of the latter place, (the party occupying two wagons, ) when the wagon in the rear was attacked by a party of Indians, and Mr. C. Vase was killed.  Two others are missing, supposed to be a part of Mr. Forbes's companyMr. F. it seems, was in the front wagon with the ladies of the party, who escaped, and reached St. Augustine in safety.  It is supposed that the Indians conceived the wagons to be a military escort.  We congratulate the estimable Mr. Forbes on his escape.
