To shew (sic) that we do not exaggerate, when we say that some of our citizens are treated rudely on the Georgia frontiers, we give the following instance: A Cherokee residing eight miles from Carrol County, was obliged one night to be absent with his family. During his absence, some of his white neighbours (sic) came, and robbed him of everything he possessed in his house, not even leaving his feather-bed. Now, there is no way, according to the laws of Georgia, in which this poor Cherokee can obtain justice. Why? Because no Indian can be a witness or a party in any Court created by the constitution or laws of that State. If this is not complete tyranny, we confess we do not understand the term.
