Southern states and Native nations

The Southern papers are advocating the admission into the Union of the Choctaw, Chickasaw and  Cherokee, nations, as slave States.  Their Constitutions are pro-slavery, and thus they are fitted for immediate admission.  The Fort Smith Times, says,  ‘The step must be taken shortly, and it is but justice to the South.’
