Ih Vhit IifDixws. it is a fact not gen-
erauj anown, mat there does exist in the Far
West, at least two small tribes ot bands of white
people. One of these bands ts called JUawkevt.
j icoiue iu .Mexico, on me soum-wesi iSioe
of the Rocky Mountains, and between three and
five hundred miles from Santa Ff , towards Cal
ifornia, in a valley which males ja deep notch in
to the mountain, surrounded y high impassable
ridges, and which can only be entered by a nar
row pass from the sooth west. They are rtpre
seoted I 'by trappers and banters of the West,
known to (the writer of this, to pemenof f era
city, to be an innocent inoffensive people, living
by agriculture, and raising great numbers of
horses and, oalea, .both of which are used by
them for food.. They cultivate maize, pumpkins
and beansi in considerable quantities. .A v .
These people are frequently depredated on by
their more warlike red neighbors ; to which
they submit, without resorting to deadly weapons
to repel the aggressors. , I i f
Not far distant from the Mawkeys, and in the
same range of country, is another band of the
same description called Jfahachck. A descrip
tion of either of these tribe will jaerve for both.
They have been described, to thei writer by . two
men in whose veracity the fullest confiidence
may be placed jand they say i he men sre of
common stature, with light flaxen hair, light blue
eyes, and that their skin is of lb most delicate
whiteness One of my informants who saw sev
en of those people at Santa Fe ihlS31, in de
scribing the Jilawkcyi isays.l'tney are as much
whiter than me as I am whiter than the dark
est Indian in the Creek nation,' and my infor
mant was of as good a complexion as white men
generally are. . f j
A trapper on one occasion, jjn a wandering ex
cursion arrived at the village of the JSIawktye.
He was armed with a rifle, afpair of belt pistols,
knife and tomahawk ; all of which were new to
them, and appeared to excite th,eir wonder 3 and
surprise. After conversing some time, by signs,
he fired one of his pistols ; instantly 'the whole
group aiound him fell to the earth, in the utmost
consternation : they entreated him not to hurt

AN ABOLITIONIST CAUGHT.
It appears from the following that one of the
disciples of Tappan, Garrison "ft Co, has been
introduced, by the polite-citizens of New Or
leans, to his austere honor,; Judge Lynchi for
tampering with the slaves of that city.
Nxw Orleans, May 7.
"On Monday evening last, one of those pious
and benevolent philanthropists, heated no doubt,
by the doctrines of Tappin, Garrison, and sBir
ney, attempted to reduce theii theories to' prac
tice. For this purpose he held a 'secret noctur
nal meeting with two slaves, Endeavoring, with
all his powers of persuasion, tb induce them to
rob their masters, and fly . to a Jand where all
colors were alike. It must 1 have been a incst
amusing entertainment for the Gentlemen Who,
within hearing and seeing distance, themselves
unseen, unheard, saw the free papers forged
sa w him pocket the supposed stolen money the
reward of his disinterested zell in the cause of
freedom, heard his ceneroos! philippics against
slavery, and his scripture quotations in gensral.
Need we say he was introduced to Judge Ly nch,
who administered the law to! him with treat
regret, 'tis troe, but with perfect justice; all ad
mil. The application of sricb punishment is
deeply to be deplored in any x)ontry. We la
ment it more than any thing, save the fantcieism
and villany which alone can Justify it. Deeply
must the necessity for such a Remedy be deplored,
and awful is the responsibility! by those who, in
their writing and doings, instigate others of
humbler rank in life, but of more courage - and
less orodence. to rush on their? own ruin. Their
conduct is as base, as it is cowardly."

Senate Coamb er, April 27th 163.
.pear Sir We are progressing in pur?ie
gislative business slowly. Many questions
of much interest have teen, and are yet,
under consideration. The hill to' distribute
a portion of the avails of our public Lands
among the respecti ve States is stil) debated'
here.C It is a subject of increasing interest,
Whilewn owed a national debt, ; and had
no more money in the Treasury than pur
reasonable wants for the common porppso
of government enabled J us, to use, I always
felt disposed to acquiesce in the opinion
that we ought not to diVtribute.Now iwe
find ourselves m a new jand strange condi
tion. On the lit April,we had in the Trea
sury $32,000,000. The quarter commenc
ing 1st January,and ending 3 ist Ma repro
duced $ 11,000,000. If we suppose the
remaining three quarters to average a like'
sum for each quarter, we shall have at the
end of the year $33,000,000 more." Add
this to the 32 millions we now have,
and the amount is sixty fie millions. X)ur
stock in tfie Bank of the United "States; we
vil-iwill probably receive, ind it now is worth
seven millions and a half of dollars.1 Mdd
this to the sixty-five -millions, ' and we have
an aggregate at tho end 'of the year1' equal
to seventy-two millions five'hiindfed hoai
sand dollars. ' It mayjhappen that tbb re
ma i n i ng three " quarters may nol 'erjual the
receipts of the first; let us therefore j deduct
for a falling ' off;' three millions and ci Half,
and we will still have 6t) millions of Hdllars
in the Treasury; and what1 can,' what "ouTit
weWdo with it? r )
Our expenditures for all ordinary purpos
es, ought not tb exceed fifteen millions of
dollars. 1 Suppose we Cake fbr'diitributipn,
as the Bill propose, twenty-seven millions
these two sums will dispose of only forty-
two millions. Deduct: this, and we still
have undisposed of 25 millions in the Trea- .
sury. . ' . . ... . f
This sum is more than, twice the amount
which f think can well be expended" in in
creasing the Army and Navy ? and building
and arming Fortifications.' ' ':i ; c f
The question then! presented; is, whit
ought we to do? I 'examined this t subject
with all the care in my' power, and satisfied
my own . mind9 tbafj we have, ,an un
doubted power to make the , distribu
tion, and. that, we arO, imperatively called -upon
to exercise it. J did not feel at liber
ty on a subject of so much importance to
give, my vote without the reasons foriit;
therefore, on yesterdayj 1 declared my opin
ions in favor of, the bill, and, the re&iocj up
on which it is founded. , , .
1 should exceedingly regret: a difference)
m opinion on so important a subject with
my constituents, I. flatter myselT no sacb
difference will occur;; but if it .sbouldt I
feel so confident that without . thu .distribu
tion every thing, which ougnt to be near
and dear to freemen, would be but a biz
ard, that I shall patiently wait omiT time
and reflection will enable them to View the
subject, in all its bearings, when I am sure
they will perceiv that 1 bad pursned adif
ferent course, the permanent interests , of
the country, as well u that of "my immedi
ate constituents would have been znistikea
or disregarded j ' , -L. . :
As it will be i some time bel&rethe ssatk
ments which 1 expressed tn the Senate can
be correctly "made-known to my iCOfistita,
ents, I have thought jit due to thca Cl
by some means my course shoald boisne ,
