WEDNESDAY, DEC. 31, 1828. (Note the difference in date)

We have an apology to make to our readers. On the day of the publication of the last Phoenix, the Editor was necessarily absent, at which time, we were requested, by the principle Chief, to suspend the paper, until the laws of the Nation enacted during the three last sessions of the General Council, should be published in a Pamphlet form. It was out of our power to give notice, to our Subscribers, of this arrangement. It was considered important to have those laws printed immediately, as some of the courts of this nation will sit this winter, and as the judiciary system has undergone a material change.
