MEMORIAL OF THE CHEROKEES.

 During the last session of the General Council, a memorial to Congress was signed by the members of both bodies which has been forwarded to Washington by the Delegation.  Another memorial intended for the people at large, has been lately circulated through the nation, and it affords us much pleasure to say, that the opinions and feelings of the members of the Council are readily supported by the people.  For want of time, it will not be convenient to obtain every man's name- sufficient number will, however, be obtained to put to rest the long repeated assertion that the majority of the Cherokees are willing to remove.  We have in our possession upwards of one thousand signatures to the memorial.
