The Cherokees East of the Missippi

 The following is an extract of a letter, to the Editor, from an intelligent gentleman at Gunter's Landing, Alabama, date 4th ult.  Ark. Gaz.
 "Boats and other preparations are making to move on [to Arkansas] a considerable number of Cherokees, under the late mode of enlistment adopted by the government; and notwithstanding much opposition is made by the most of the intelligent part of the nation, it is believed by them, that the Cherokees cannot exist much longer, as a nation, distinct from those of the Mississippi."
 We refer our readers to the extract of a letter from a respectable Gentleman, inserted in another column of our paper.  It will there be seen that this "late mode of enlistment" has so far been unsuccessful.
