Into fire. . Ikforo proceeding further, per
mit me to correct a mistake which I am
told some of you valley folks uro laboring
uinler. I hat is, that the present war has
been brought about by designing politicians
and unprincipled traders, for the purpose of
making political capital, and of selling n
large amount of goods and surplus provi
sions to government at exorbitant prices.
A great mistake indeed. Our government
was never iT.orn completely driven into a
war, tliun ti on tho present occasion. We
have home with the Indians until forbear
ance ceased to bo a virtue. Our miners
could not trawl from one part uf iho cuiititrv
to another, without being shot down by the
wary savag. a in ambush, Our teamsters
and packers, on whom we depended for sup
plies, we'e treated in like manner, and de
fend I. ss families Were inhumanly hu'eh
orcdin their own houses by the Indians.
Houses were laid in ruins, whole herds of C0's-
stock were, slain, and our country in many
place.! presents a sceiio of general dev asta
tion. That tho white man (as is areU,.j
by some) has been i he aggressor is not true.
If some (not very consecutions) men, have
kilhd now and then an Indian, it was
but in retaliation for past injuries. These
Indians havo never been true to their treat
ies. They never kept a treaty until tle
blankets wliich bought it Were worn ,11,1
