Cherokee Phoenix and Indians' Advocate
Vol. III No. 16
Saturday August 14, 1830
Pg. 3 Col. 3b

            The publication of the Phoenix was suspended for the last week, by order of the authorities of the Nation, for the purpose of printing in pamphlet form the opinion of Mr. Wirt on the right of the State of Georgia to extend her laws over the Cherokee people.


            If any of our readers should think that the opinion of Mr. Wirt occupies too large a portion of the present number, we hope they will change their opinion on a patient perusal of the article.  It will be found to be a very able and lucid discussion of the interesting subject on which it treats.


            The Cherokees have been forcibly prevented from digging gold in their own country by the United States' troops in pursuance of the order from the War Department which has been mentioned before.  Particulars will hereafter be given.


            The Communication of "A Choctaw" and an interesting document forwarded from the Choctaw Nation are necessirly deferred.


            DIED -- In this town on the 5th inst. Mr. WILLIAM WHEELER (brother of the printer of the Phoenix) aged 17.
