Indian Affairs- Mr. Jacob Gideon, Jr. of Washington, has in the press, a volume compiled from the Library of the Department of State, which is to comprise the Laws of the Colonial and State Governments from 1633 to 1831, inclusive: relating to the Indians and Indian Affairs; with an Appendix containing the Proceedings of the Congress of the Confederation and the Laws of the United States from 1799 to 1831 inclusive, on the same subject. The first clause of the first law is the compilation being an act of the General Court of Massachusetts in 1633 is so short we quote it:
'It is declared and ordered by this Court, and authority, thereof, That what lands any of the Indians in this jurisdiction have possessed and improved, by subclaiming the same, they have just right unto according to that in Gen 1 28 and Chap 9.1 and Psal. 715 16.'_-N.Y. Adv.
Cherokee Memorial-- We understand that this Memorial, with about six thousand names appended, commencing with those of Oliver Wolcott, Col. Fish, Col. Trumbull, Rev. Dr. Milnor, the Bishop of the Catholic Church, Dr. Dubois, and a number of our most distinguished lawyers and merchants, was transmitted by mail to Washington yesterday and is expected to be presented in the House of Representatives on Monday next. This memorial is very brief and simply asks that existing treaties in favor of the Cherokees, and the non intercourse law of 1812 be enforced. We understand that memorials, to the same effect, will soon be forwarded from Philadelphia, Boston, Hartford, and New Haven. Let the friends of justice and humanity in every part of the country be active on this subject, and the errors of the Government will soon find a corrective in PUBLIC OPINION.- New Y.
