V t railed by the Chero
k Katioeal Council for two or
Ikn jee, asd ratil the arrival
pf the auuraees in this country
TOavfa fee Mwasure final.
The tersaa and conditions of the
grtriwHif irr specifically set forth.
On their fmlfilment it stipulates
tbt "the said Cherdkecs Trill re
lative ike said Shawnees referring
fco lbMe ovr in Ktnsas, and alio
to MHfc ae properly belong to said
tribe wk aaay be at present elsc

and immunities of native citizens
of the Cfeerokec Nation ; provided,

preruioBS of this agreement shall
register Jfccir names and perma
nently locate in the Cherokee coun
try, as iereiabefoie providedwith
in two years from the date thereof
. otiierwke they shall forfeit all
rights nsder this agreement.
In reters. for these rights the
Shawnees agreed to place to the
credit of ike Cherokees ; Perma-
jtaai annuity for educational pur-
poees, wader treaties of 1795 and
1864, l,0ar interest on t-iO.OOO
foe edueatkaal parposes, treaty of
3854, 92,060 ; permanent annuity
ia specie, wider treaties of 1S17
aad 1854, 92,060 j and the sum of
$50,000 when the United States
aboold receive that smn from the
sale of laads sader the resolution
of Congress, April 7th, 1SG9, for
the relief of settlers on Absentee
Shawnee laada in Kansas.
The Shawnees contend that their
eraiwiinn. from the benefits of the
bale per capita distribution is' con
trary le'the terms of the foremen
tiooed agreoment, and that the re
ply to Document No. 86 is incor
rect in its statement of at least two
important fiefs. Firsts they did
not buy 190 acres of land from the
Cherokee? , bat equal rights with
native Cherokees; and, second,
that the consideration agreed to be
paid far these rights ias been fully
paid, and no balance of $50,000 or
other sum remains unpaid. In sup-
It iias beex stated thatsome of
the, prominent Delaware citizens of
the Cherokee Nation arc so much
dissatisfied witli the action of the
Cherokee National Council in con
fining the recent pec capita of $15.50
to native-born Cherokces, that they
are desirous of nackinc np and
moving elsewhere. "We hare no
cause to believe that this feeling
extends to any 'considerable num
bver of persons, and we would re
gret to think that it did. It is one
of those impracticable ideas that
will not be accomplished, that
should not be accomplished, and
which can serve only a mischiev
ous purpose by its agitation pro
ducing restlessness, distrust and
discontent. The Delawares have
had an eventful and checkered career-
They negotiated with Wil
liam Penn under the historic ''elm
tree ;" the graves of their dead are
found in ft God's acre" at Bethle
hem, Pa., where they have been
sacredly protected for more than a
hundred years ; they have crossed
the great Mountains and the Father
of Waters, and after being pushed
from place to place, and illustrat
ing by individual adventure and
daring their prowess and endurance
from the Schuylkill River to the
Rocky Mountains, the surviving
remnant have merged their tribal
existence into that of the Chero
kees. Here they are comfortably
located, and are to-day the richest
portion of our population, collect
ively, because they have a large re
serve fund held in trust by the Sec
retary of the Interior, in addition
to their rights of Cherokee citizen
ship. Most of them are comfort
ahly settled, while many are sur
rounded with the luxuries and en
joyments of educational and reli
gious privileges. Their possessions
are inestimable, and not to be de
spised or lightly cast aside. The
Editor of the CaiEFtsHX has al
ways regarded the adopted Dela
wares as standing on the same foot
ing as the native Cherokces, and
believes that any departure from
that idea is wrong In principle and
unwise in practice. But the griev
ance in this case will not compare
in injury to all concerned, with the
evils of the remedy proposed. In
the line of old Indian relationship
tho Delawares are recognized as the
grandfather, and the Cherokees the
oldest brother. The vigorous youth
should not be so headless as to be
unmindful of the filial obligations
of justice and kindness resting
upon him as to forget his pledges,
nor should the other, by petulance
and hasto.create the suspicion that
he is approaching second childhood
in despising the real blessings
which surround liim. and tottering
ofi to the wilderness to find nests
with the birds and holes with the
Ed. CHiEFTAiy. Several commu
nications having appeared in the
Cherokee Advocate of a character
to mislead the Old Settlers, I as
President or the Old Settlers and
their Executive Representative,
deem it my duty to speak. The
Executive Secretary of the Cher
okee Nation has taken the liberty
of taking from the Post Office a
communication "addressed to the
Principal Chief of the Old Settlers
which, should have been delivered
to me as your President and Chief
Executive Representative he goes

and expound the same as the rep
resentative of the Executive-De
partment of the Cherokee Nation.
I have reasons to believe'he was as
little authorized to intermeddle in
tbis way by the Executive Depart
ment he assumes to represent as
he was to open the communication
in the first place.
In reply to his arguments and
suggestions I shall reply very brief-
In 1S75 by duly authorized del
egates to a National Convention at
Tahlequah who represented the
Old Settlers by virtue of your votes
duly cast I was made President of
the Old Settlers and a commission
was appointed with powers to pros
ecute your claim of which I was
made Chairman. Since then from
year to year National Conventions
have been called at Tahlequah to
which all Old Settlers are invited,
and when by their votes in open
council they have confirmed-and
reaffirmed the commission in the
prosecution of this claim. Your
commission has faithfully and un
tiringly prosecuted your claim.
They have employed the best at
torneys in the United States, and
now have the case presented in
excellent shape before the Court of
Claims. You are represented there
by the most learned and active
.counsel and tne appeals to you to
rush forward with your individual
claims withinjsixty days are sim
ply silly, and of which, even the
writer is not convinced as he winds
his argument up by pleading con
solidation and b3 desiring me "the
President, to call a meeting of del
egates to organize the old settlers
into a distinct and efficent body for
the purposes of their pending
claim, &c., and prepare a statement j
for the Court of Claims, tc. All
of which ii idleness if not imperti
nence, as the Old Settlers are fully
rcprcsenteJ for the purposes of this
claim and have a full statement
now befort the court. No good
could possibly come of reorganizing
except to give the gentleman an
opportunity to form ope of the
new commission and introduce be
fore the cojrt of Claims a conflict
ing line ofargument from the one
we have duemed judicious. I have
simply this to say, my Old Settler
friends, ym are now about to reap
the result if our faithful labors for
many years and you should be
very carefd not to do anything to
embaras3 the cause. When the
proper timi comes I will notify you
and call a jeneral convention.

Shield Xatir once inquired if I
ever heaid jf houses with flat
roofs, sayiig that his fathor's great
grandfather used to say that once
their peope hid a great town,with
a high wal aout it. That, on a
certain ocauon, their enemies
broke dowi i part of this wall
that the lousjs in this town had
flat roofs, though, he used to say;
this was s loig ago it is not worth
while talkhg tbout now.
A great rhJc ago the Indians
were affliccd with certain very
awful comtlsintf, which do not
prevail now One especially, which
occasioned Iretdful sores, though
different frcn the small-pox, or
yaws.oranycoaplaint now known.
When any on of a family was
taken with thaUisaase,the affected
person was sent off some distance
from any houscand there had a
house prepared or him tov live in
evor after. Tim the pnest was
sent for, to oleasc the house from
which the distsed person had
been removed. The ceremonies
were similar to tose of cleansing
a house defiled b the dead. After
this, should an touch the dis
eased person, he "ould be unclean,
as if he had toucbd a dead body.
The Son of Got after giving the
law on the mountin, commanded
them to sing the ymn or prayer
which they now sjg at daybreak
in the morning, ad at night before
going to sleep. 5iis hymn was
always to be sungor repeated at
those seasons everday.
When they had te written law
the people were beer than they
are now. They wold not lie, nor
have any idle, foohh talk. The
old people used to til the boys it
would be bad to giw up in sin.
In olden times the caimandments
were kept better than n later times.
All sin was forbidden Those who
grew up in sin, they sid, would be
punished after death but those
who did right would bthappy.
Red Bird, an old Chrokee, used
to say the Cherokees hd a white
post set up near the concil house,
and on the top of it wasfastcned a
white skin, or piece of hitc cloth,
to remind them to keep teir hearts
as white as that was, ari also to
remind them of thecommndments
which were once given to heir fath
ers, and written on whie (some
thing white). This was one when
he was a boy, as he toll his son
Anciently, when woniei cooked
breakfast, the cook put some of
whatver she cooked into the fire ;
if mush, some of that; if meat,
some of that ; and if bins, some
or one of them. But the ird sac
rificed must be whole. Tie feath
ers were taken off and the "ntrails
taken out, and then the brd laid
on the fire.
Nutsawi (of PineLog.)
Whenever a Cherokee kiled and
brought home a deer, ho sxrificcd
a piece of the tongue and tie melt
before eating any of the mca. Also
of all othor four-footed clean leasts,
that is, such as might becaten.
But after this first sacrifice faey of
fered no more of the same mimal.
But if they obtained, or hat given
thorn, other meat, of whici they
had offered none, then the vomen
put a piece in the fire cverj time
they cooked. When birds were
cooked, one was put into thi fire.
But on cooking any large fowls, as
turkeys, geese, etc., they a.ways
sacrificed the breast. They lever
forgot to burn some of every kind
of fresh meat.
Hunters also sacrificed a piece of
the tongue of every deer they killed
during the four first days; after
that period they sacrificed the melt
of every door they killed. They
did this to obtain success. So.alto,
of every four-footed clean beatt,
and the breast of every dean fonl.
And on starting out in the morning
they prayed to the Great White
Being above to give them success.
Mr. Boudinot, speaking of other
Indians, says: "The women al
ways throw a small piece of the fat
test of the meat into the firc,before
they begin to eat. At times they
view it with pleasing attcntion,and
pretend to draw omens from it.
This they will do though they are
quite alone, and not seen by any
one." Startn the West.
Ancicntly the Cherokces
thanks even before- eating a
Witches were to be killed. Apoi-
soncr, among the Indians, means a
witch, or one who, by means of cer
tain ingredients, has power to be
witch or kill persons at a distance.
In ancient times the Indians al
ways had their places of worship
near a river or creek, or on the
bank of a lake, or on the sca.-shore,
God gave them directions with
regard to marriage, as also with re
gard to what animals they might
God commanded them not to say
"askini" (mean or cursed) to the
deformed, nor laugh at them. He
said they must be kind to all peo.
pie, especially to strangers. And
iflhcy had any animals under their
care, they must treat them kindly.
The old people used to speak the
name "Jews," as in the Yowa
hymn, (Anitsun), but nothing fur
ther is known of them.
