TRANSMITTING,

In pursuance of a resolution of tke House of Representatives of the 13th of March last, a report from the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, relative to the Creek Indian reservations under the treaty of 1832.


June 1, 1848
Referred to the Committee on Indian Affairs, and ordered to be printed.


WAR DEPARTMENT, May 31, 1848.

SIR: I have the honor to transmit, herewith, a report of the Commissioner of Indian Affairs, in answer to a resolution of the House of Representatives of the 13th of March last, requiring information respecting Creek Indian reservations, under the treaty of 1832, remaining unsold or undisposed of.

ARCH. CAMPBELL, Jr.,
Acting Secretary of War.

Hon. R. C. WINTHROP,
Speaker of the House of Representatives.

WAR DEPARTMENT
Office of Indian Affairs, May 30, 1848.

SIR: I have the honor to submit, herewith, a list of Creek Indian reservations, under the treaty of 1832, which remain unsold; and, also, a list of reservations set apart for reservees under the same treaty - claims to which, by purchase from the Indians or otherwise, have not been finally disposed of; prepared under a resolution of the House of Representatives of the United States of March 13, 1848.

With reference to the interrogatory, "What plan, if any, has been adopted by the War Department for the disposition of said unsold reservations?." I have the honor to state that no definitive measure has yet been adopted upon the subject.

The 1st section of the act of 3rd March, 1837, authorising and sanctioning the sale of Creek reserves, enacts that the President of the United States may cause the reserves belonging to the Creek Indians, which shall remain unsold on the 4th April, 1837, to be sold at public auction, in the Creek country, "after giving at least sixty days notice of the time, place, and terms of sale in the public prints, and to cause patents to be issued to the purchasers of said reserves.

The records of the offices show that, as early as June, 1838, an agent was appointed to carry out the intention of said law, and that the lands which appear to be unsold, as aforesaid, were advertised in public prints, in the States of Alabama and Georgia, for sale, near to the location of the reserves; but that the sale was "postponed on representations made to the department that the reserves were claimed under purchases from the Indians. Several claims were afterwards presented and confirmed, thus reducing the number of unsold reservations.

It is the intention of the department to renew the advertisement for the sale of these lands when it shall determine on the most favorable period of the year to bring them into market.

In relation to the claims now on file, and not finally disposed of, it may not be improper to state that the office intends to select from them those to which no objection appears, with a view of submitting them for confirmation.Those which have received a favorable consideration by the department, but the conditions on which their approval depend have not been complied with, the parties or their agents will be notified that, unless the claims are perfected, by the payment of the purchase money within a reasonable time which will be named, the lands will be regarded as unsold by the Indians, and be disposed of at public sale under the law of 1837.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

W. MEDILL.

ARCHIBALD CAMPBELL,
Acting Secretary of War.

List of Creek Indian reservations which have been sold, and the sales of which have not been finally acted upon by the department.
