Our neighbours (sic), we are told, are still flocking in and possessing the land.  Many of the most notorious members of the "Poney (sic) club" are no doubt foremost in this business.  Instead of stealing, they have commenced shooting our citizen's horses and cattle.  The most expeditious way to remove us would be to let loose such a community upon us.  But would it be honorable for the State of Georgia to effect her purpose in this manner?- We hear it stated, (we hear it will turn out to be a fact) that the Sub-Agent has been despatched to forewarn these intruders from their unlawful proceedings.  Whether they will listen to his talk, is more than we can tell.
