TIieButirict Cottcdum, 1S22.
Another aged Cherokee, the Ot
ter, gives a brief account of the
creation, as handed down by the
old men, in substance as follows :
Tworcat beings, the Father and
the Son, created all things. They i
took clay and fashioned two per
sons in their image, except that
one was a woman. They then gave
them life. They als" brmed a gar
den in which were all kinds of
fruits, but forbade the man and wo
man taking any fruit from that gar
den, or seed to plant. The newly
created pair settled ontin the coun
try and multiplied. At length the
Son came down andfonnd they had
stolen fruit from the garden, in vi
olation of the command of their
creator,and had it growing through
the country. He returned and told
the Father what great wickedness
had been committed. But, not
withstanding thi3 wickedness, it
was resolved net to destroy the
peopIe,but to give them further in
struction and warning. They still,
however, increased in wickedness
till the Lord brought a flood upon
the earth, and then left it. Before
leaving it, however, he taught the
people how to pray to Him above,
every morning about daybreak, so
that all must pray to the creator
The soul of the first man was
giTen by the breath of God. He
blew into $c man and the wo
man, and this gave thenj breath,
and soul, and heart, and inwards.
The soul of the infant comes with
the first breath, which happens,
they suppose before birth, as soon
as the infant manifests life. The
soul lives forever. Konsn.
God gave the red man a book and
Daner. and told him to write, but
he merely made marks on the pa
per, and as ho could not read or
write, the Lord gavo him a bow
land arrows, and gave the book to
the white man.
A great while ago a part of the
world vas burned, though it is not
known now how, or by whom, but
it is said that other landjvas formed
by washing in from the mountains.
atSt,Lsi3. The Interior Deparfc-
pasnt was not charged with the (Ls-
tobation of this money, and can
kave so control over it, I do not

was paid to Mr. Phillips or not.

tke money paid out, unless he b&3

THE OIAKG5 SWORN TO.
CeL Boadinot then made the
ekarge, duly sworn to, to the At
torney Geaeral,who again address
ad tke secretary of the Interior,
stotlne; that the "specific violation
of the statute consists in Mr.
Phillips having entiled into a
eoBtnct with certain Indians, not
eidaens, for the payment to him of
a certain sum of money, without
tow approval, and that Phillips
hae since received under the con
tract from the Indians $22,500 "

Mr. Boudinot, speaking of the
Indians, says : "It is said among
their principal or 'beloved' men.
that they have ithaudeddown from
their ancestors,that the book which
the white people have, was once
theirs ; that, wXme they had. it,
they prospered exceedingly; but
that the whita people bought it of
them, and learned many things
from it; while the Indians lost
credit, offended the Great Spirit
and suffered exceedingly from the
neighboring nations; that the
Great Spirit took pity on thcm,and
directed them to this country; that
on their way they came to a great
river, which they could not pass,
where God dried up the watcrs.and
they passed over dry-shod.
They also say that their fathers
were possessed of an extraordinary
divine spirit, by which they fore
told future, and controlled the com
mon course of nature, and this they
transmitted to their offspring, on
condition of their obeying the same
laws ; that they did, by these
means, brine down showers of
nlentr on the beloved people. But
this power, for a long dmepast,haa
entirely ceased." (Star tn the
Aqua-ha-ye (.Uraham) was the
greatest among, their ancestors, but
this is all that can be told of him.
TThon our scholars,David Brown,
John Tub, &c" firstbegan to trans
late the scriptures, they expressed
Abraham in Cherokee by Aqua-ha-
mi, though the letter "m" is not
congenial to the Cherokee language
nor found at all in the mountain
dialect which is evidently the most
ancient. But the name Aquahaye,
as known only by the antiquarians,
flows easilr from every Cherokee
The next man of greatest note
among their eaily ancestors, was
by the name of Wasi (Moses). He
was the greatest prophet, and told
them of things past, relative to the
creation of the world, the history
of mankind, and also told them
things to come. He directed them
how to consecrate their pricstSjhow
and when to celebrate their feasts,
