to be put. by the Speaker's enasinti vote,

iut the qtestion was not dfeci-led yet. The

therefore, not carried. So the 11ill was re

-At sain early ihontra Messuage wits received
from the Praisident trantsmtitting a letter
from Mr. Poijnsett, Secretiary of Watr, to
John Ross tand others of tIme Chmerakee Del
eraton, Iew itn ii city. Th'is Aaeleza-.
tion had laid before the Presidont a project
for a new Treaty bond on removal and ces.
sion. The letter givcs the Delegation
their final reply. It offiers them conces
sions of a very liberal nature, in the hope
and ni th the uifcrstanding that it will re
euncile the whole trib to removal. Iltdiedi
not grant all that Ross requires, but it pro
posos, with the -assent ol the States of'Geor
gin, Alabama nd Tenn-ssee. to prolowg
tho time allowed fir ifle removai for lwov
)eats, and to give the li dians all the neces
-ary protectiia, meann hile,and even to su'
fir t item to unanage their own reiiovAl in
their own way. underceruain restrietion-s.
It oilers to grant the Cherokees a patent. in
ierpetity, for their new contrv West of
he Mississippi, whilh the Govern anen al
ways Contemplated granting to the eii
grant tribus, anid agrees that no territorial
or other .1overilnenit shall be enforced over
the Cherokees without their assent. It
considers a further sim Ir the expense of
removal, and the payment of arrearages
and annuities tinder "former treaties, and
the continuance of annuities granted by the
Treaty of is89, for two years, provided
Congress shall amsent thereto, b-ut it rehi
ses to allow a sum for the Cherokee couniv
in adldiion to the 5 million fund stipulateld
in the Treaty.
Messrs. Clay and King of Alabama.
Cuthhert of Georgia. and others, expressed
the greatest surprise, regret and indignation
at this tmovenent on the part of the Execu
tive. Thov said they had not been consult
ed in it, and utterly condemned it, as inju
rious to their States, nad % eli calculatevd to
provoke a lrotracted ind bloody war with
the Cherokees. They said eventt. had been
brought about in this n:atter. of which the
G13rovernmiienlt had [if) knowledgO,by the tur
ders lately commitnted v Ole Cherokees,
at the instigation l' the P'retended chief of
that nation, %%ilth whom this negociation
had heen openiu-d; an-I they moved the Set
ate hat tle States concerned would o on
fortlwith to execute the treaty, whatevcr
might he tile course of the Goveriimetnt in
regard to it. They said that the States
im ediately concertned would nee.r as
sent to atny delay ; aind but for this trentv
Georgia wotld not have waited so long for
their removal. They spuried nad repiidi
atied the document and would not a-ree
that it should ever he rollerred. Mr. Wei)
-aer said that it was the prevailiing opinioi
an the comitry 'hat the treaty was fraudaa
lentl i obtained. This Was his own oinflioln
as expresse:l at the time of its ratification
here. If, as alhe Secretary of War propos
ed, any thilmg could bie done to lessen the
in.pstice of outr procethre, lie lopedI it
would be dotie. If a litile Imlotney was all
ihat was wanted fr this purpose. he was
wilting to grant it. Mr. Calhotn said that
the 6ecretary of' War wished to make the
removal en-ier and more speedy by prevail
mla upotin the Indians to assent to it. To
remove them witlhout aheir assent would be
dlini.111t. If five huntatdred Ihousaid dollars
n%litald pe'rsuatie them to go, alter a renson
ably delay, lie trusted it would lie given.
The matter was laid aside for the present.
The samte niessage was discussel in the
louse and referred io the Comlmittee ot
Indian affairs. Most of the day was spent
tn the consideration of the subject of the
Presilent's message in relation to the oc
eupation by kireut Britain of the territory
of the U. 8:ates onl the Mississippi. Mr.
Adams says we bave twenty-eight degrees
of that coast that we iay, atid probably
must, light for; and lie is for oectpying it at
