min- res Au Ar at a the au on with plea same the . THE SIX NATIONS. , A few months ago, a collection sundry Indians of ihe Six Nations met in council at Tonnawanta, the direction ot the celebrated Rec Jacket, and in their proceedings censured in strong terms the missionaries 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 chiefs of the Six Nations met in council d u r i n g the past week, their annuity from the United they pronounced the speech of Jacket, which was publishedin a handbill, a scandalous libel, made up falsehoods. Red Jacket, it seems, the Pagan party ; and so from there having been 2608 at the Tonnawanta meeting, the bay 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 several chiefs were signed to Red Jacket's handbill without their knowledge or consent. They say the motive which governed the authors the libel, arises from an inveterate hatred against civilization, Christianity, Christianity, and those who have exerted themselves in the introduction of those blessings among the Six Nations. ^ s Philad.
