Micco-Nopy.--Second Chief of the Seminoles. This man is rich in slaves, and is said to own about 70. It is said of him that being opposed to the present war, and siding with Hicks, he was told that if he did not fight, he should also die. The alternative was proposed to him at the moment when Major Dade was about to be attacked, when he lifted his rifle, shot that officer; and returned to his village, having fired but the one gun.
