The "party" thinks the everlasting d. tiny of the country is now resting w i"ih its awiui weight upon the success of these four resolutions. SV In anwer to our Yamhill corre ipondeiit, w have lo state that on the 7ih of January lat .Mr. Uurbank ollered a res olution in the Legislature, tendering the use of tho Legislative hall to Gen. Palmer, which wa adopted. On the afternoon tho same day U'aymiro moved a rcconsii. era; ion of the vote, which was warmly ni ported by Waymire, Doise, and Burbuuk till of whom voted lhat Palmer should not have tliBchaneoof defending himself. On the 3d day of January, Di hzon Smith presented the petition of Win. llohn and other citizen of L!nu county, "pray ing for the parage of an act submitting the question of the relocation of the conn ly seat of Lfnn county to the people at the no,t annuul election. On the 21st of January, a "genoral law for locating county seats" was passed. In advocating the bill, Mr. Durbank said that he was in favor of it, because il required a two third) majority lo locato county seats lie stated that tho petitioners from Yam bill wanted to locato their county scat by a bare majority, which ho "was opposed to." Two days after litis, Jan. 2:i.l, a peciul law wa passed allowing Lint) county tolo cnte her county seat in accordance with the petition presented by Smith, aud the Stales mint reports mention no opposition as coin lit'' Iron) liuroank or any body else, Two days after this again, Jan. 23, Mr. Buckingham, from the committee to whom was referred the Yamhill petitions, report cd that they had leave to withdraw their petitions, as "the object prayed for can be obtained under the recent 'general law' for locating county seals." Messrs. Durbank and Shuck made no opposition to this, and the strong inference is that one of them, or both, had asked leave to "withdraw" tho petitions, notwithstanding a special law h id been passed for Linn county after the passage of the "general law," which Mr. B. seemed glad to have applied to Yamhill, because it required a two thirds vote to re move tho county seat. The record does not show whether Burbank nnd Shuck voted for Smith's Linn county law or not j but il is very certain that they wholly failed to urge tho prayer of thoir petitioning con. atituents.

Tho following is a truo copy of tho morial sent to Washington lust winter, ask ins the removal of Col. Gakuner. The Statesman published tho same with what it thought to be a few "slight variations," just as it publishes every thing else. Y have no idea that a law has ever been print od at that office just as it passed. Our leg islutors pass laws, and "pass aud sign" mo moriuls, and then leavo them iu the hands of the public printer to fix them up to suit bis likitir;. Under such an arrangement we livo under a despotism instead of a do mocracv. Tho memorial published by the States man makes the following alterations from tho original: In referring lo tho laud law- it says, "approved sept. 2iw, JboU, " in stead of 1950. In place of "not qualified," it says "uot apt," It strikes otifcornyW" as applied to Preslou. Il changes "rejoyc- ecf" to rejoiced, ";ifVe" to entire, "parti ten" to partisan, aud "constiluttnU" to cou stitucnts. It strikes out tho naiiio of Gro ver, and makes the memorialists ask for no particular appointment. It also inserts th following, which is not found in tho origi nal memorial, knowing that tho falsity of the charges would be detected at Wash inglou, ns everybody there knows that the delay in issuing patents is chargeable upon the Department there, rather than upon tho land olhce here. The clause was inserted mordy for effect among his "partizen" readers, and we have no doubt but ihe tire" body of tho "constituants" of tho learned memorialists "reoycecf' when they heard that Col. Gardiner had beeir re moved, so that Mr. Ziebcr could issue put- n Is immediately. But here is the chtnso ; "lie conducts the public survevs in nn indifferent and tardy manner, so lhat our settlements linvu been in advance of the surveys ; the lands declared by our organ ic act, to be reserved for the purpose of be ing applied lo schools, have been occupied and held by settlers, while in lieu ihereof, rewt must be had to sections and fractional sections of mountain, swamp, and timber ed land, in many instances comparatively valueless, nud not a patent hns issurd to 'n single claimant of the public lands in Or egon, nlthotigh fully entitled by residence and cultivation, unci due application there tor, nioro iliun four years ago."
