jassary to keep up the semblance of
in Upendanee among the Indian tribes,
humanity can go no farther.
T»e language usually held out to the
Indians, by the agents of the Govern
in act, to isduce them to remove, is,
that they are to remain uncontrolled
in their habits; that an extensive
country will be assigned them, a-
with game and evory other
.advantage suited to their pristine ha
•bit*. Without an extended country
tn the south, the Government cannot
•comply with those engagements. It
is a" mere mockery of humanity to
hold such language to the Indians,
when under exilting circumstances,
•the promises contained can never be
realized. It is like adorning the vic
tim with flowers o#d fillets, when you
are leading it to the alter. In our
transactions with the Indians, as well
as others, the scale of justice should
never preponderate, ~or the language
of humanity be disguised. In placing
them west of the civilization, they
aiuit have a country in extent suitable
to their roving habits. If they are all
■to be crowded into tho territory now
ut the disposition of the Government
in the west, the consequence will be,
war, starvation, and a total extermi
nation of the race. If this S is to be
the case, the cause of humanity
would be aided, by compelling them
to stay where they are, and submit to
•tha restraints of civilization.
If the proposition respeoting the
formation of our Indian colony, with
out the range of the States and Ter
ritories, contained in (he report of the
Secretary of War, should be adopted
by ths Government, we will have,
according to the Secretary's calcula
tion, seventy-five thousand at one litter,
in addition to those already in the
country. We most acknowledge, that
the Secretary would be extremely
productive in people for his colony,
but will he tell vis, where he will
put them? and how he will subsist
them, under existing circumstances,
I believe his plan rational and practi
cable, if tiie Texas country belonged
jto the government; but, otherwise, the
restricted limits in which he would
have to plant his colony, would render
,itt a perfect Indian slaughter-house.
'We have just been informed that a de
structive fire happened on last Friday
night to the missionary station at Brain
.erd. The dwelling house, the two school
louses, and the kitchen, we understand
pre reduced to ashes. The original cost
.Of these buildings was probably not less
than 9-4000. Our informant did not learn
jwhethcr any other building was burnt, or
how much property was saved. This un
fortunate circumstance must, at least for
.a while, put a stop to that flourishing
school. The children havr ' ' '<•

Washington City, )
33d. Feb. 1830. ] j
1 this day transmit you a eopv of
the report of the Committee on Indian
Affairs in the Senate. It relates as
will he seen, more particularly to our
situation, and the threatened exten
sion of the State laws over pur nation;
and strikes at the very root of oui ex
istence as a nation. How the Honor
able Chairman of that Committee
will.make it cut that the principles of
that report are correspondent with
those of his written opinion on our
riuht to tax traders, I cannot ima
gine. How changed and altered are
men and things from what they were
in the days of our fathers. Then
they were told they had rights, and
treaties were entered into with them,
to secure and protect thorn, in the en
joyment of those rights. "But now,
' since we have improved our condition,
and are truly sensible of our rights,
and insist upon the faithful maintain
anse of thoso treaty stipulations mule
in good faith, why, wo are frankly
.told that Hit) United Slates never
had anv right to enter into treaty with
our nation; that we are the subjects
of a sovereign state, and subject to
be controlled by her will alone, with
out any interference by General
Government. This Sir, is the lan
guage of our Great I* ather, to whom
The Indians look up for justice and
protection. Rut a few day's since,
we saw him, and spoko of our present

f,uu: ii*. U It! jit! Uili.Ul' iiU'J USijUil iUCIli'
ur«is, and that was his opinion of the
validity of all our treaties. I shall
oiler no comment upon the report, but
from the limited knowledge 1 have ol
these matters, 1 cannot say, that it is
based upon the principles practised
by Washington, Jefferson, Madison,
and Mo: roe; or, that it is very able.
What a deceptious course the Gov
ernment has been pursuing towards
us, these forty years, if, indeed, wo
have no right as a distinct people, and
that they had no right to treat with
us even though Htmven witnessed
their solemn promises, ami that the
lands we now occupy, truly are the
rightful property ol Georgia. When
Congress shall have decided upon our
righis, we shall be satisfied. Let
her,in justice to the American people
and the unfortunate aborigines, de
clare to the world whether all the
Treaties under her solemn ratifications 1
are worth no more than so much trou- j
ble to deceive ignorance. She owes ,
it to herself and to the civilized world, j
We have determined to remain upon
our own soil, and pursue habits ot in- !
dustry and religious instruction. The j
state laws, though extended, we can-j
not acknowledge to be just; and the i
time has at length arrived when it
oocomes necessary fur the United!
States Government to decide our fate, ;
and say whether we shall sink in ruin ;
anil degradation by such U iule3 as !
civilization teaches." j
At a meeting of friends.to the aboli
tion of negro slavery, held in Leeds,
[Eng.] on Monday, Sept. 28, 1529,
John Clapham Esq. in tbo chair;
It was unanitnouly Resolved. That
slavery is an evil of fearful magnitude,
directly opposed to the well being *nd
happiness of man, the law of God, and
the religion of Christ; the existence
of which especially in any part of the
British dominions, we, as Christian do
most seriously deplore, and the entire
extinction of which we feci ourselves
called upon most stienuously to seek
and promote, by all those means
which the providence of God, f'nd the
laws and constitution uf our own fa
vored & happy country, have put info
our power.
That to us it does appear, that the
various religous denominations ot* this
country, with perhaps one exception,
have not yet applied themselves to (he
destruction of this great evil, in that
determined manner, and the magnitude
of the evil itself, and of the powers
banded togeherfor its continuance,ob
viously & most imperatively demands',
That, for the most part, the ques
tion of negro slavery has been ap
proached as a political one, and assail
ed by arguments drawn from policy
and mer<j expediency, and not opposed
with those stronger and less equivocal
principles c:u3 r Tgti fiirii; 5 AY I) ii' 11 Ore j
to he derived from the word of God, !
and the supreme and immutable laws
el revealed religion.
That, too long have we, in common I
with the friends of humanity aroundi
us, wasted our time andefiortsin vain
attempts to ameliorate the condition
of our fellow creatures who are in
bondage, with a view to their gradual
emancipation; but deeply feeling, tlwt
to maintain such a system, under any
modifications whatever, is to oppose
and counteract the spirit and princi
ples of oar holy religion, we pledge
ourselves henceforth to seek in every
Jegimate and practicable way, and by
1 our united and strenuous exertions, its
immediate and entire destruction, and
to remove from ourselves, and our be
! lovod country, the guilt of fostering
this flagrant injustice, or even permit
' ting its contiiTU inee, for any period,
j however limited, beyond the time,
that irtay be absolutely requisite to
nass the act for its Complete abolition,
I and to frame <§• apply those provision
-lal regulations and restraints, which
! shall establish the authority of law in
the British colonies;
| That, while we unequivocally
maintain the right of tho slaves to the
full participation of freedom, without
1 any compensation on tlieii* parts to the
I persons who hold them in bondage,
we have no wish to prejudice those
. claims which (he planters may have
upon the government of our country
to a fair and equitable indemnification
[against such losses as may bp neces
sarily consequent upon the change of
! system; and we declare our readiness
to boar our full proportion of the bur
dens which t';e lesislntu-re, in its wis
dom, may find it requisite to' impose,#
for the accoinjdismhent of this great
1 measure

That a society be now formed, to
consist oi Protestant dissening minis

the immediate and total abolition of
slaveiy, and that it be called "The
Yorkshire Protestant Disenters'"As
sociation for the Abolition of slavery.
That a committee be formed, to
consist of tiie minister and two or
more members of each Protestant dis
