G00 troops for the detestable purpose of destroying the Indians,
and the last packet from the United States brought the intelligence
that she is still fiercely engaged with the Native Tribes.
Mr. WILLIAMI KENNEDY informs us, that in the year 1825, when
'" the citizens of the United States with their accustomed enterprize
and daring, entered the country, " tley found Texas was
overrun with bands of wild Indians, some of them cannibals, and
the whole a terror to the 3Ilexicanrs ; and that his brave AngloSaxon-Amcricans
accomplished what Mexico acknowledged her
inability to effect, they " subdued the country by the rfle, and instead of being admitted to settle on
the same terms as others," provision is now made by the Texian
laws for their entire expulsion from the Country, and armaments
are fitted out fioml year to year to carry their destruction or extirpation
into effect! Can Mr. KENNEDY seriously justify this ?
At present tlhe Indians are a source of great weakness, as well as
terror to the Texians, and will remain so, whilst they continue
tlleir wicked policy. Talk of "savages !" Every right principled
mind will not fiil to applythe term to the Texian buccaneers, rather
than to the victims of their atrocious cruelty !
Here’s what’s next.
