Leave was however given them to remain, provided they would conduct themselves properly, and make a crop of corn, during which time it was hoped thki the General Government could 'dispose of them by removing them beyond the limits of the State. Soon after that interview was had with those Indians. I addressed to the Secretary of War of the United States a communication upon the subject of thai r removal, a copy of which together with the reply there to are here- "with laid beofre you.

Ifcjipijjiii- in muni jurisdiction of officers of their own govern- ment Until Congress shall establish com- petent tribunals to try and punish crimes, and o exercise jurisdiction in civil cases in ChirSa, American citizens there are subject to n law whatever. Crimes may be com- mitted with impunity, and' debts may be contracted without any means to enforce tlieir payment. Inconveniences have al- ready resulted' from the omission of Con- gress to legislate upon this subject, and still greater are apprehended. The British au- thorities in China have already complained that this government has not provided for the punishment of crimes, or the enforce- ment of contracts against American citizens in that country, whilst, their government has established tribunals by which an A- merican citizen can recover debts due from British subjects. Accustomed as the Chinese are to sum- mary justice, they could not be made to comprehend why criminals who are citi- zens of the United States should e...

This mode of payment has given general satisfaction to the great body of the Indians. Justice has been done to them and they are graetful to the government for it. A. few chiefs and interested persons may object to 'this mode of payment, but it is believed to he the o.ily mode of preventing fraud and imposition from being.practiced upon the great body of common Indians, constituting a majority of all the tribes, It is gratifyin...
