Congress for Rights of States, 1830

From Boston Palladium
Feb. 1830

CONGRESS
Indian Affairs.

The Committee in both branches of Congress, on Indian Affairs, have made their reports. Both reports contend, elaborately, for the rights of the States in which the Indians reside, to extend over them their jurisdiction; and both strongly insist on the expediency of removing them beyond the Mississippi. The subject is, therefore, brought fairly and fully before Congress. To "the delegated wisdom of the nation" it now belongs to determine whether the Indians, as such, have any rights or not. It is a subject, as the Washington Spectator says, which "enters deeply into the sympathies of the public, deeply into the honor of the nation, deeply into the light in which we are to be viewed by posterity."

The rights of the Indians, and the right of the Government of the United States to protect them, are arrayed against rights contended for in behald of Sovereign States. We cannot doubt that the National Legislature will, in this case, truly represent and maintain the honor and humanity of the nation.
