Creek Indians- We have understood that, in consequence of the dissatisfaction expressed by many of the Creek Indians who had subscribed their names and agreed to form a part of the emigrating party, a disturbance has taken place among them, and rendered it necessary for the Government to take some precautionary measures.  Capt. Wager's Company of the 4th Regiment has been ordered to repair immediately to the scene of disturbance, and will leave here in a few days.  It is supposed the disturbance has been created by Indians opposed to emigration, and some white persons who have influence in the nation.
