. Indian Litigation.—An instance has come to
our knowledge, of a departure from the imme
morial habits and customs of our Indian neigh
bors, in adjudicating differences among them
selves. which appears to us worthy of record.
A quarrel having arisen between two of the
natives, in w hich they could only “agree to disa
gree”—the party deeming himselfaggrievea, re
solved on a recourse to the white man’s law’s
for justice—deeming, perhaps, in the simplicity
of his heart, that she alone ministered, with her
dread sword and impartial balance, amid the
legal pomp and circumstance with which the
courts ol the land are invested.
The most singular feature in this novel case
was the employment by each of the contending
parties, of an Indian advocate; natives of the
Seneca nation, and students at law in this city
—- to plead in due form their respective causes.
This was done with zeal and ability by the coun
sel on both sides, firs? stating their arguments
in English for the couit, and then recapitulating
the substance to their clients, in the Seneca
tongue—citing authorities readily,and appealing
to decisions in point, to establish their several
This instance of a regular suit in our courts,
in which the litigating parties and their legal
counsel were ail aboi igines, is, we believe, some
thing unique— at least.it is the first have
been acquainted with. Though not personally
present to notice the demeanor ofthe parties on
this occasion, we presume the imperturbable
gravity of the Indian character predominated,
and regulated the conduct ofthe disputants In
deed, it seems to u>, that the reserve and digni
ty—the fearless integrity — the earnest, simple,
impassioned eloquence—the courteous defer
ence and decency —which were peculiar traits
in the proud ami loftv nature of the Indian—
might be introduced, with decided advantage,
into the practice at the bar of our courts; and
should think the experiment well worth the en
deavor of li ving to impart these desirable quali
ties into its warring and incompatible elements,
by encouraging the Indian youth to excel in the
paths ol legal science.— Buffalo Advertiser*
