isuy olution, gust, agon a public au thorities the the sure cordiality, closest THE SIX NATIONS. , A few months ago, a collection o: Indians of ihe Six Nations met in council at Tonnawanta, under direction ot the celebrated Rec Jacket, and in their proceedings censured in strong terms the missionaries and we believe one or two schoolmasters, and one of the agents, employed by tha whites to disseminate the lights of knowledge and the blessings of the Gospel, among that unfortunate race. By the last Buffalo Journal, we perceive that when the of the Six Nations met in council d u r i n g the past week, to annuity from the United States, pronounced the speech of Red which was publishedin a handbill, a scandalous libel, made up of Red Jacket, it seems, the Pagan party ; and so far there having been 2608 Indians the Tonnawanta meeting, the chiefs there were n» more than 130, including 39 British Pagan Indians, from the Grand River, in Upper Canada--many of whom signed the handbill- It seems also that the names of chiefs were signed to Red Jacket's handbill without their knowledge or consent. They say the motive which governed the authors of libel, arises from an inveterate hatred against civilization, Christianity, and those who have exerted themselves in the introduction of those blessings among the Six Nations. ^ s Philad.
