We said, not long since, that many in Georgia would be glad to see the Indians resorting to rash measures, so that a pretext may be given to annihilate them.- Following language of the editor of the Savannah Republican is to the point, and suitable only for a blood thirsty Barbarian:
'If these misguided and infatuated beings should carry their threats into effect- if one drop of our citizens' blood be shed by them, or the committal of any outrages on their part, on the lives and property of our defenceless (sic) frontier people--then is their fate sealed. A war of extermination by the whites, must and will take place, and they will be driven at the point of the bayonet into the Mississippi. Despatches, it is said, have been forwarded to the President of the United States, who will act, no doubt, with promptness and energy on the occasion. His opinions are already known to the Indians, and go they must.
To talk to a Georgian about the Indians, is like talking to a South Carolinian about the Tariff. They both immediately get on a high horse, and ride over you without the least ceremony. We have, therefore, concluded to let them both ride their hobbies to death, if they please. When, however, the Columbus Enquirer again blows the trumpet, we'll rattle the drum, and we'll all turn out, and imagine the Indians 'are coming.' It will just answer as well as if they were actually at hand.
