Creek Indians.--- The controversy between Georgia and the Creek Indians is
at length amicably and finally terminated. The Georgia Telagraph [sic]
informs us that a full Council of the Creek Nation of Indians assembled at their
Council Ground on Monday, the 31st ult. and continued for several days.
At this council, the Treaty made by Col. McKenney, with the Chiefs, for the
purchase of their remaining strip of lands in the boundaries of Georgia was
laid before them by the Agent, and received their full assent. The Government
is to pay them $47,491 -- being $5,000 more than mentioned by Colonel M'Kenney,
in his letter to the Secretary of War.
The above is confirmed by a letter which we have lately received from one of our correspondents.
