Major Armstrong, the agent for removing the Choctaws, has arrived here from the Nation, and informs us that about 2,300 Choctaws are now on their way to this place, and will probably arrive on the first of November. Arrangements are made for their immediate transportation across the Mississippi, and their final settlement on the western frontier. It is supposed that between seven and eight thousand will remove this fall.

We also learn from Maj. Armstrong who passed by the Chickasaw Council of Treaty, that up to the 18th ultimo. the day on which he left, the Treaty had not finally been ratified, but the prospect was still flattering.----Memphis Times.
