Editors,—In your paper of the 12th instant, I noticed u commnniralion signed “ Justice,” in answer to “ A SurveyorI ant uot desirous of entering the fluid of controver sy with this writer, nor would it seem necessa ry, either for my own saku or that of tire pub lic, fur a# it and you eun readily-perceive, ho has not ventured to encounter, for the purpose of refulation, tlio facts and statements which I communicated. Ho snya my communication is “ calculated to mislead the public mind, and lo cast unjust cenBure upon the officer# of the Generul Go vernment,” &c. 1 should certainly abhor my self, if I thought 1 could be justly regarded by an honest community aa oni. desirous or in any way endeavoring to mislead public opin ion, or to curI unmerited rebuke upon a faith ful officer. With some of those officers I am acquainted, and beliovo them to be men of respectability, and true to the trust reposed in them by the General Government. Rut gen tlemen, I would refer you lo the full, plain nnd satisfactory statement in a late number of your puper, ul one ol tho Government officers, Reuben Thornton, Esq.) lo show that Ire has differed in opinion with, nnd highly disapproves of, Ihe course pursued by some of the officers concerned in the Cherokee enrollment j and it will also bo seen by tho reply of the Secretary of War to one of Wr. Thornton’s letters, that the Government will not lend its sanction to the plun of ono Indian’s purchasing the im provements of others, having them valued aa their own, &c. and the buyers permitted as be fore lo remain in the territory. It matters not with mo, whether those Indian# havo been paid off in merchandise, 11 Slock,Cattle,Hogs,” and tho like, or not; there may not have been tnoro than ono instance of merchandise having been paid to Ind.inns fur their improvements, nor do I pretend lo charge the vendor of this article with any intention to practice fraud up on the Government; but gentlemen, Mr. Jus tice or Mr. any one else, would fail to convince me that il is just or expedient, as he seems to intimate, for uny officer of Government, to pay Ihe monoy appropriated for the removal of tho Cherokees West of the Mississippi, to any Indian or Indians, and still suffer them as bo- fore stated, to remain on Georgia’s land.— Would not this defeat the very intention of that appropriation ? What I would ask are Ihe evident objects which il contemplated ? Un deniably the removal of the Indians, and the indemnifying them lor tho losses they sustain by that removal. And is the policy which “Justice" admits lo have been pursued calcu lated lo promote either.of those paramount objects? No, is the,emphatic answer, for rarry out the policy to the extent which il will undoubtedly reach, if not arrested, and what will be the consequence? Cannot the influ ential nnd wealthy class of Indians—cannot one wealthy ludian purchase the improvements of twenty common Indians, at a roduced price, emigrate to the West with the money, and leave the twenty Indians behind in the nation; thus to nay the least of if, but illy advancing the known wishes of the two Governments, depriving the Indigos of tho equivalent they would otherwise have obtained, and leaving them (after the very inadequate pittance they heve received, ia wasted and gone) of an im portant stimulus to emigration. Now you will ohaerve that “Justice” speak* of an article io Ihe treaty of 1828, “ which provides to pay Cherokee emigrants, (mark this wurd) full value for all improvements they might abandon." Now I would atk, is the Government bound to pay any Indian for his improvement, unless he emigratss or unless he abandons the country I Nay, would it be just dealing towards the Indian ur Georgia t Out of his own mouth I would condemn him, for, trnys upon the fnce of it a most unpardonable want of reflection, of candour or of informa tion. Because u man is commissioned to sur vey a district, he must need# also occupy it! This no one will question, is an age of im provement in nearly all the pursuit# of socie ty, but I must be allowed lo say that many more such specimens an the above would be Merely dispiriting to the “ marclt of mind,” at least in sound logic- What object ho expected to nerve hy making mention of this new kind of occupancy, f. know not, unless it was fur tire purpose of advancing " Indian philanthropy,” for it is notorious Hint it hoed# not reason or argument; but howev er this may be, I cannot but consider it pecu liarly unfortunate, for what ever impression the former part of his article might have made upon a considerate mind, this lust resort lot justification from statements, must havo been fatal to that impression. Whether it i# a “ crying sin” to survey the Cherokee country or not, il is not for me now to discuss or determine; I had no agency in the passage of the law authorizing that mea sure, though 1 have been appointed one of tire agents in carrying it into operation. But there is no provision in that law, empowering “ A Surveyor," or surveyors, to occupy the district or section he runs, or uny other part of the Nation; nor do I believe that there is, or has been, a solitary surveyor employed in this work, who wishes to occupy a particle of tire Indian land, until they can do it upon terms the most fair and honorable.

But botv shall I describe fny emotions, when our city rose to sight, sealed in ihu midst of iln watery domain, stretching uwuy to n vast ex tent ; when I beheld a glorious sunshine light ing up the skies and domes, and some familiar tu memory, others new und unknown, and beaming upon a forest of masts of every na tion, extending as far as tho eye could reach- 1 have gazed with admiration upon many u fuir city and stalely harbour, but my admiration was cold and tnefcctual, for 1 was a stranger, and had no property in the soil.
