Mr. Kelly made the following report: The select committee to which was referred, so much of the Governors message, as relates to the boundary line, between this State and Georgia, with instructions to inquire into, and report to the House, the nature and state of the controversy have had the subject under consideration, and beg leave to report that by the articles of session of 1802; the State of Georgia ceded to the United States, all the right title and claim, which the said state had to the jurisdiction, and soil of the lands, situated within the boundaries of the United States, South of the State of Tennessee, and west of a line, beginning on the Western bank of the Chatahoochie River, where the same crosses the boundary line, between the United States and Spain, running thence up the said River, Chatahoochie, and along the Western bank thereof, to the great bend thereof, next, above the place where a certain creek, or river called Uchie; being the first considerable stream on the western side above the Cassetas and Coweta towns, empties into the said Chatahoochie river; thence, a direct line to Nickajack, on Tennessee river, until 1826 Georgia asserted that the point of departure from the Chatahoochie, was at a small curvature of the river a little above the mouth of Uchie creek, Alabama has at all times, contended that the true point of departure, was at the great bend, some 60 or 70 miles higher up the river.  In point of act, the Cassetas and Coweta towns referred to, to locate the creek, are above the mouth of the Uchie.  The commissioners indicate, by the cautious phrazeology adopted, that there was not entire certainty, as to the name of the creek; in speaking of the Chatahoochie and Tennessee rivers, they do not speak of certain rivers so called, nor of Nickajack and the Indian towns as places so called; but on the contrary, as streams and places well known by the names, but as to Uchie, they have not relied on its name to convey their meaning, but speak of it as a certain creek or river called Uchie; and refer to well known Indian towns to indicate its locality.  The creek or river of which they speak, was to enter the Chatahoochie on the west side, and was the first considerable stream above the Cassetas and Coweta towns.  The fact that Uchie creek, empties into the Chatahoochie below and not above the towns referred to, and the fact that there is no great bend in the Chatahoochie, sufficiently near the mouth of Uchie, to make them suitable as objects of connected referrence, induced Alabama to contend that the name of the creek was mistaken in the article of cession; rejecting the name, and relying on the description, there can be little difficulty, in establishing the true point of departure from the Chatahoochie. The object of te parties was to fix a boundary between states and common description would induce tem to prefer a natural, to an artificial boundary, so far as it could be conveniently obtained.  There is in fact a great bend in the Chatahoochie, where the river changes its general course, and bears to the South.  That feature must have been known to the commissioners, and being known, it was perfectly natural and suitable to adopt that point as the termination of the first line.  By that course, a natural boundary would be established from the Florida line, to a point where the artificial line, would no longer coincide with the natural one, but would leave it abruptly and give both states the suitable and convenient form; a man of plain sense, placed at the Florida line, with the articles of cession as his guide, would proceed up the river above the Indian towns, before he would look for the creek; above the town, he would find no creek called Uchie, but he would find one answering the description in every other particular, a short distance above the upper Coweta villages: he would find a large creek called Yhatka, and above that the great bend.  The towns, the creek, the bend, all near enough together be called for as connected, and convenient points of reference, and finding this correspondence in the descriptive calls of the article, he could not control them all, by the mere name of the creek, but would suppose that the name had been mistaken, and would find on the great bend as the point of departure, from the Chatahoochie.  These conclusions


252

seem so natural as to force themselves on any mind disposed to examine the question with common candour.  The State of Georgia however, resisted the influence of these plain and forcible deductions, and asserted her right to begin the artificial line, at a small bend in the river, a little above the mouth of the creek, actually called Uchie; and continued to do so, until the test of the chain and compass, proved the error of the assertion when the commissioners met at fort Mitchell in July 1826, to settle the disputed boundary, and run the line, the representatives of Georgia would near of no other point of beginning, but the one they had previously claimed; to get the true bearing to Nickajack, it was necessary to run an experimental line, that line was commenced at the place assumed by Georgia; and run upon the course that it was supposed to strike Nickajack, but which in fact run a few miles East of it; running upon that course however, to their utter astonishment, they struck the river and had to make as many as four offsetts, to avoid crossing it.  This discovery led to the abandonment of Uchie as a beginning and as no point but the two, had ever been thought of, as a beginning of the artificial line, it was reasonably to be expected that Georgia would yield to the just views of Alabama, and agree on the great bend as the point of departure; but this expectation proved fallacious; the commissioners of Alabama, in order to adjust the dispute, proposed to agree to any point on the curve of the great bend, that those on the part of Georgia would select and enforce the reasonableness and legality of that proposition by arguments of the most satisfactory character.  The Georgia commissioners however rejected the proposition, and assumed a point on the Chatahoochie, called the flat shoals, or Millers bend, thirty or forty miles below the great bend, as the point to which they would run the true line from Nickajack; against the assumption of that point, the commissioners on the part of Alabama protested, because it had no attribute of the point described in the article, except that it was on the West bank of the Chatahoochie, and in that point not distinguished from any other point on the same stream above the Florida line.  It is below the great bend, Ychatka creek, the one obviously described in the articles of cession, and below some of the Coweta villages, and besides all this the artificial line to that point, runs along the margin of the river nearly parallel to its general course, for a considerable distance, perhaps thirty miles.  This consideration alone, is full proof, that the point assumed by Georgia cannot be the true point of departure from the Chatahoochie.  The exalted intelligence, and venerated character of the commissioners, who negotiated the cession, forbids the idea that they could have located an artificial boundary on the margin of a natural one for so great a distance, against the plain import of their own language, tested by the soundest cannons of construction; posterity will never convict Messrs. Madison Gallatin and Lincoln, of such egregious folly, upon the mere assumption of any State, however respectable.  Against all these considerations, Georgia has permitted herself to assume a point so utterly untenable and to run a line from Nickajack to the flat shoals, against the protest of Alabama. Your committee regret that they are unable to view this procedure, on the part of Georgia, in any other light than a palpable violation of the sovereignty of Alabama.  It is true, the Territory thus attempted to be taken from Alabama, is neither extensive nor valuable.  The soil is understood to be in main very poor, it is but a few miles wide at the Chatahoochie, and tapers down to a point at Nickajack.  These considerations however, cannot vary the question, our sovereignty is as certainly violated, as if the quantity was great and soil good.  Georgia has run a line contrary to the article of cession, against which we protested the whole of which is on our Territory, such is the nature of the dispute, and such the state of the controversy.

The same committee reported joint resolutions, in relation to the boundary line, between this State and the State of Georgia, which was read


253

a first time, and the rule requiring bills and joint resolutions to be read on three several days being dispensed with, it was then read a second time forthwith, and ordered to be engrossed for a third reading to-morrow.
