There is a report, that the Arkansas Cherokee Delegation, in entering into the late treaty at Washington, acted contrary to the wishes and instruction of their Countrymen, and that they have made themselves liable to severe punishment.  From circumstances which have transpired since the return of the Delegation from Washington, we have been some what inclined to believe it, though we should like to hear more on this subject, before we give full credit.  Above all things, we should hate to witness another Creek tragedy acted over.
