From The Adams Sentinel
Gettysburg, Penn.
March 24, 1830

The Cherokee Phoenix of Feb. 24th, states that the census of the nation in 1810, gave a total of 13,219, including 583 blacks and 341 whites, In 1824 another census was taken, and the result was 15,580. To which must be added "at leasf 3000, who between the two dates removed to the Arkansas. Total increase in 14 years, 4841 ; or 36 per cent. In addition to this, 500 Cherokees removed into the Tribe, from North Carolina, between 1810 and 1824, so that the whole population at the last mentioned date, deducting the 3000 who had emigrated, was 15,-560. "What the population now is," says the Phoenix, "we are unable to say; but this we know, the Cherokees, since 1824, have been as rapidly increasing as at any former period. It was found lately that there was no difficulty in obtaining 4000 signatures (in-cluding some lads under 18) to the Cherokee memorial to Congress.
