  NEW ECHOTA
  Wednesday June 11, 1828

 We learn from a letter addressed to a Gentleman of this place, by Mr. D. Brown who acted as Secretary to the Arkansas Cherokee Delegation, that a treaty of exchange of lands with the United States, was likely to take place.  The United States proposes to give the Arkansas Cherokees ( we suppose for the lands now in their possession) seven millions of acres beyond the limits of Arkansas, and furthermore; offers inducements for the Cherokees in Georgia, to join their brethren in the West.
