lhat an interesting decision on (he subject of Ihc In
diaat right to Sovereignly, over llto Clierokoe lands had
been recently made in the highest tribunal of the State
of Georgia. Tho subject is one of such importance
that we givis at length the opinion of that tribunal,
which was a Convention of a!l tho Judges of the differ
ei;t circuits of the State, it is entitled to moro weight
in lhat it is understood to ho the production of ono of the
most distinguished ciliieni ol that state, as well as one
ol (hemost eminent men in the Union, \i/.: 0f Wn.
is tAM H.'Cn vwkokd, s» man whoso namo is closely
i(]on!ine<l with “ol'l-la^hioned * rcpulilicnni^in.
The casu was one, in wlticlt an indictment hai been
found against n Cherokee, for the murder of another
Cherokee, within tho torritory claimed by t'at tiibe of
Indians and hi their occupancy. Tho indictment was
la'Vii rUn< °r d 'V.a,'l,°-,0' <;eorK'a. passed in the year
1 V >> for extending lift laws of the Slate over tho Che
rokuo country, and which, for tha purpose of giving the
. uperior Courts c.f curtain counties jurisdiction over
offences committed in tho Cherokee territory, annexes
ttie whole ol sai l hr. dory to certain counties of the
Mi'at i bordering upon the same. A part of that terrilo
ry was attached to the county of Ilall, and it was in the
jMrt ao attache*), (lj.it (ho offence described in (he in
d elm nt was charged to have been-committed. To
tins indictment, a ph a d tho jo-ix lictlon of the Court
was til ; and the Julgn presiding in Mali co'in v,
r'Vi. I 'yt0,» v‘-<l tho fp.esrion for thu opinion
of the Judges m ( ouveiilion. 1
„ rl"3 '.. ,fo' ,h° defendant appeared before tbe
Convention, and contended that the act of 1329 of the
fct.not Georgia, extending the criminal jurisdiction of
tl o State over tho Cherokee countiy, was uuconslitu
Uonal an I void. I hat by various treaties negotiated
between tl..* United States and the Cherokee Indian,
beginning with the »r. aty of Hopewell and ending with
tlu year 1329, tho Cherokee nation had been treated
with, and con-ode re 1 an independent sovereign State
and, therefore, could not be subjected to the taws of V
Mate; that in those several treaties, the right of self
government had been expressly recognized and dis
Ituctly i.i'lntained by the Cherokee h it,,, 0r nation- that
the extending the cilmmal jurisdiction of thn laws ol
Georgia over the Cherokee nation, was an infringement
cr the right of self-government secured to the Cliero
leo Indiana by the treaties with the United States
which treaties ware by the Constitution of tho United’
Slates, declarer! to !>.* (ho Supreme law of (he land_
I he ( (institution declares all treaties in ado or to he
made, the supreme law o» the land; thn treaty of llono
we" hoi anterior date to tho Constitution, and is (hcrc
fore expressly recognized by it, and consequently on
titled to morn weight in the decision of this question.
1 hat treaty contains an article acknowledging the ri-*ht
to declare war against tho United Siam,, which "by
counsel W s relied upon as unequivocal evidence that
ho United States acknowledged tho Chetolsoo Indians
to ho s sovereign forci.State, possessing at least tho
sovereign attribute of declaring war.
Upon this plea the Convention of Judge* delivered
the opinion, which pubu*,. lo.(l.iyi which V¥0

••i-trd Are in# Indian trib*#, nMhin thf limiH of fh«i
United States, legal object* of the treaty-making power?
1* bar been shown in the preceding part of thia decision,
'hat they have oot been conrtdereij legal oM*«t« of a
declaration of war. It hj« also been shewn, that by all
the department# of the government, they have uot been
tr-ated as • sovereign independent elate in the regula
tion of if* commerce—Can any further evidence be re
il'iired, that the Indian triVes are not the ccnatitu'ionai
olj -ct* cl the treaty-making power? It la presumed not.
' It seems 10 be solf-evident, that communities wliich
hare been determined not to he objects of a declaration of
war, cannot he tho object of tho treaty-making power.
Hut it may be answered, that tho president and senate
have determined that the Indian tribes are tho proper
objects of the treaty-making power, ami that treaties
have actually been made with them. This is admitted.
Hut it may bo safely contended, that a construction put
by the president ami Senate upon that part ol the con
stitution which grants tho treaty-making power, is not
entitled to as much weight as a construction placed up
on other parts of tire constitution by all the departments
of the government, entirely inconsistent with that plac
ed upon tho treaty-making power by only two of tho de
partments which had concurred in that construction.
Hut f>r the sake ot investigating the subject more fully,
let it for tho present be taken for granted that tho In
dian tiibos arc tho proper objects of a treaty-making
power. I lie rights and (he relations of those tubes had
been unalterably fixed long before the treaty-making
power created by the constitution of tho U States ex
isted, and it was not competent for that power when
rightfully exerted to alter or change those rights ami
relations. The right of the Indians to the soil upon
which they lived, was that of occupancy only; the lee
being vested in ttio Stato of Georgia.—Any attempt to
change the right of occupancy into a fee, would have
invaded tho scizcn in fee declared to be vested in Geor
gia by the Supremo Court of the United States, and
wont I have been null and void. Again, the rotation ex
iting between the Cherokee Indians and the Stato of
Georgia, was that of pupilage.
No treaty between the United States and the Chero
kces conld change that relation, could confer upon them
the power of independent soil-government. If there
me any clauses in any of tho compacts between the
U. States and the Cherokee Indians (miscalled treaties)
which give to those Indians the right of independent
self-government, they aic simply void, and cannot, aud
ought not to he permitted to throw any obstacle In the
j way of tho operation of the act of Georgia, extending
jurisdiction ovor tho country in tho oceupacy of the Che
[ rokco Indians. But it may bo urged, that tho Stato of
Georgia having neglected lor about fifty years to exer
cise this jurisdiction over the Cherokee Indians, is barr
el by the lapse ol time, from exercising it now. It
might he deemed a sufficient reply to this objection, to
<*iie tho maxim of "jX'ullurn Tcmpiix," which has hocn
determined in the Courts of (his State, and as far as is
known to this Convention, by atl tho States to ap
ply to the State Governments with the panic force as
it applied to the British King. But this convention will
not rest the reply upon this maxim, because a more in
lutclligihle and satisfactory reason can be given. When
America was first discovered, as has been shown in the
derision of Johnson v. M’lntosh,discovery was consider
ed equivalent to conquest. It became therefore the duty
ot the discovering, or conquering nation, to make some
provision lor the aboi igines who were a savage race
and of imbccilo intellect. Inordinary conquests one of
the two modes were adopted. Eilhor the conquered
people were amalgamated with their vanquishers and
Occam 3 one people, or they were governed as a separate
but dependent State. The habits, manners, and iinbe
c. 'Melloct ol tho Indians opposed impracticable bar
riers to cither cf those modes ot proccduro. They could
neither sink into the common mass of ;hcir discoverers
or conquerors, or bo governed as a separate dependent
people. They were judged incapable of complying
with the obligations which tho laws of civilized society
imposed, or of being subjected to any code of laws
winch could bo sanctioned by any Christian society.
Humanity, therefore, required that they should bo per
muted to live according to their customs and manners:
and that they should be projected in their exist
ence, under those custoinsand usages, as lontr as they
chose to adhere to them.—But the Cherokcos''now say
they have advanced i i civilization, and have formed for
themselves a regular government Admit .he fact, they
arc then in a situation to be brought under the influence
of the laws of a civilized State of the State of Georgia.
I he obstacle which induced Iho State of Georgia to tor
bear the exercise ovor them and which vested in Geor
gia, no longer exists, if the Cherokee* or their Counsel
is to be believed. The State of Georgia is imperious
y called upon to exercise iis legitimate powers over
the < herokee Territory. — Indeed, it seem* strange that
an objection should now ho made to that jurisdiction.
1 hat a Government should be seized in lee of a territo
ry and yet have no jurisdiction over that country, is an
anomaly in the science of jurisprudence; but it may be
contended that altho’ tho state of Georgia may have the
jurisdiction over the Cherokee Territory, yet it has no
LKJfJfi.QWfiiiYri WFio‘ros'i.?e ItporTth etcriYtoryof which
tho Stato of Georgia is seized in fee. Such distinction
would present a more strange anomaly than that of a
government having no jurisdiction over a territory of
which it is seized in feo. y oi
This Convention holds It to be w ell established, that
where a sovereign Sute is seized in 'ee of terriiorv it
has exclude juii-diction over th it territory, not only
on the et:r-arc and every thing tint is to bj found in

pinion that it is founded in justice.
• r ° ar® *'varo *hat the prejudices ol a large portion
of the citizens of the Union are enlisted on this subject.
1 lie mistaken philanthropists of the North, in their wild
and visionary zeal for Indian rights, have accused us or
avarice, cruelty and injustice ; they have opened their
phials of wrath, and poured on our devoted heads a tor
rent of invective and abuse, as uncalled (or as it is un
deserved. On the other hand, it is not impossible but
there may be a few individual* among us, who advo
catc measures that would be unjust and oppressive hut
they do not constitute any considerable portion ot our
citizens. No man here doubts the right of a State to
enforce obedience toiler laws upon every inhabitant of
her territory—hut our Northern friends are mistaken, if
they imagine that a feeling of covetousness, or wish to
take away any of an Indian’s inherent rights, predomi
nate among us.
1 o those who regard the extension of the laws of (his
State over the Cherokee.* as an act of oppression, and
who pretend not to find its parallel in the history of the
States, we would say, leok nearer home, gentlemen—
In what sttuahon are the Narr.igansct tribe <f Indian*
in Rhode Island, the Oneidas, the Onondaga*, the Sen
ecas, the I uscaroras in Now-York ? They live in dis
tinct and separate communities, retaining in a givat
measure their original habits, hut possessing the means
of education and improvement in abundance. The laws
of thorn States have been long since extended over
them; and wc hear no complaints from the Indians
themselves, or from those philanthropists who have ta
ken such an acivc stand in fovor ol tho Cherokees —
They do not call it unconstitutional or unjust. Why?
Is it because the Indians acquiesce in the juiis.liction
of the civil authorities ? Would that alter the principles
of the case ? Assuredly not. The fact is, tho murmurs
or those whites and half-breeds who control the minds
and actions of the unsophisticated n»iiv/»o I, -,i
. •/ ;c—- r ...H. .no zealous friends, and thev
have mistaken this feeling for the dictates of justice -
Ignorant ol the real state of the Indians hero, and the
advantage.* of n removal, they have, by intermeddling
with our affairs, encouraged the disaffected among then
to persevero in their resistance to legal authority anil
the spirit of opposition has extended so far, that Uwill
bo impossible to remove them, (ill they become practi
cally amenable to our laws, and can no longer screen
themselves from their leqniieuients.
In connexion with this subject we would remark, as
was mentioned last week, that the committee of our lo
gislaturo on tho state ol the Republic, reported a bill on
the 10th inst. recommending a partial survey of the
Cherokee territory, and laying it ofT into districts.—
Iherprincipai object in recommending this measure
is, that justices ot the peace may he elected in such
districts or counties as have white men of good moral
character in them, who will he able to aid j„ enforcing
our laws, and at tho same time in protecting the Indians
from iawiess outrage on (he part of abandoned and
P,o|l gate while men.’’ Should this bill become a law,
t will afford increased facilities for apprehendin'* fugi
lives fromjust.ee, who may seek lor shelter under the
protection of some Cherokeo Cliicr, as well n* to pie
vont the atrocities sometime.? committed (hero *
" cro it to bo distinctly undcrsood tl,.,t tho Chero
kee government was independent of any stale, what
would be the consequence? A man commits a flagrant
Violation of the laws, and for safety flees ,0 the Indian
nation. No officers of a slate Government, nor of the
hinted Mates, (for one government has no more le.ra|
or moral right to control tho In inns than the oth.'r ^
would have power to proceed into the nation and take
away the fugitive. lie would bo safe from tbe arm ol
tho law—beyond the reach of justice. Tho savage
might commit depredations—even robbery and min
der, upon our people, and wc would have no means of
redress, except by a general war. Ought this state, of
things to exist? No man will answer, m/e. Hut we
presume some will assert that the effect Would not be
such as we have foreboded. This position is altogether
untenable it can bo supported neither by a recurrence
o analogous fact* or by sound argument, and until
that can be done, wo shall adhere to the opinion we
have before expressed, that the course now pursuing
by the general and state governments towards the In
dians, is founded on the principles ol justice, and will
bo to tho Indian* themselves, erentually, a great anti
important benefit. 6
