Compact with Georgia- Mr. Forsyth has introduced a bill into the Senate to provide for the fulfillment of the Compact of 1802, by which the United States stipulated to extinguish the Cherokee title to their lands within the limits of Georgia, which has never yet been accomplished by the Government, from the unwillingness of the Cherokees to leave their native soil. The bill has been referred to the Committee on Indian Affairs. This will bring up the Indian question once more; and we hope it may be settled agreeably to the strict principles of justice and equity.
