William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 1, Chapter 26: Cherokee feuds. (search)
s got drunk; a row began, and while this row was on, the two whisky vendors got hung. No one can tell me how it happened. No one but myself enquires. Who cares about a scalawag more or less? Dead men collect no bills. But a more serious fray than a whisky broil threatens the prosperity of Vinita. These Cherokees are cursed with a tribal feud; a feud which has a counterpart in every Indian camp. When the Cherokees were being ousted from their ancient hunting-grounds in Georgia and Alabama, and were offered their present lands-given to them in exchange, to be their own as long as grass should grow and water run, the Indians were divided in counsel as to what they ought to do. A cunning chief, who had assumed the name of Ross, became the leader of such Cherokees as wished to treat the Pale-faces as enemies — to reject their offers of an exchange of lands, and stand out against them as long as his braves could draw a bow and pull a scalp. A second chief, who had assumed the n

in the present world, no common hope in that which is to come. Can mind of man conceive a lot in life more wretched than that of being a Red man's slave? To be a White man's thrall was bad enough; but on the worst plantation in Georgia and Alabama there were elements of tenderness and justice never to be found in the best of Cherokee and Seminole camps. In Georgia and Alabama ladies were always near, and children constantly in sight. A civilised and Christian society lay around. PeoplAlabama ladies were always near, and children constantly in sight. A civilised and Christian society lay around. People lived by law, and even where cruel masters abounded most, the forces of society were on the side of rule and right. No Negro in Virginia lived beyond the sound of village bells and of the silent teaching of a Day of Rest. No slave in Louisiana was a stranger to the grace and order of domestic life. What sacred sounds were heard in a Choctaw lodge? What charm of life was seen in a Chickasaw tent? In every Indian camp the squaws behaved in a harsher manner towards the Negro than their brut

rashear says to me, when showing us the lions of his hamlet. You see it in a place-get off as quickly as your horse will trot. We call it fever-moss. It is a sign that chills and fevers hang about. The weed seems widely spread; we see it everywhere along the Gulf. Along this Gulf disease and death are widely spread. It grows in every marsh and pool, round every lake and bay. You find it in Eastern Texas and Southern Louisiana, in Western Florida, and among the inland waters of Alabama. This parasite is ugly, fcetid, and of little use. Negroes rake it down and bury it in the earth. In ten or twelve days the stench dies out, and then they dig it up and dry it in the sun. When crisp and hard, they stuff it into mattresses and pillows in place of straw. Negroes are said to like sleeping on this dried fever-moss. Brashear is a colony of Negroes, and a stronghold of the Black League. Setting aside some dozen officers connected with the boats and trains, no White inhab
