 EXPLANATION.

 By "principal men of the Nation," we do not mean the head chiefs, that is to say, William Hicks and John Ross, but our leading men, or in other words, the members of the National Committee & Council.  These men we do not believe, can alter the Constitution in any way, except that which is prescribed in the last article of that instrument.
