The following I a part of ti e letter of
Horace Grcvly io tlio N. V. Tribune, in re
lntion to the Indian war here, to which we
alluded last week :
Nov. 21, Joel Palmer, Superintendent of
Indian Adair In Oregon, addresses Gun.
Wool in a letter protesting against the ex
asperating fulsuliuod which certain white
are constantly spreading with a view to iu
Volvo the friendly Indian in tlio bo.tilities
into which noma tribe have been goaded.
Here i a specimen of hi letter:
"I am satisfied thut the Cnyuses, a a
tribe, lire desirou ol maintaining peace,
and thut there must be on thnpnri of the
whites a depart uro from tlio principle of
jnalicii, and A viulation of rights much red
t bis tribe by the tr-iy, beloru they nil lo
virne a hostilu pariy in tlii war. Such a
ttup will be, in their apprehension, h dc
pernte last resort for preservation.
''This is aim) irue of the Ner.perce.-
Their uiiiforin good conduct and trieiidihip
lor our citizen render all intention uti t heir
part to make war on us quite improbable.
"The reposed combination of nil those
tribes with intent to wajje a war of exter
mination against the whiles is, I apprehend,
but a phiuituiu conjured up in the bruins of
alarmists, unsupported by nno siib-iiiiiiial
reason ; and tile plot, said to Iiuvp been
nearly consummated, of cutting off those
engaged in the in'joiitions last June, I
regarded as of iltn same character, originat
ing in the sumo source. "
Dee. 21, ho writes again to (.'en. Wool,
commencing as follows ;
t "(iKVP.n vt .! Tllft ov'xli.hrn o nnl" ."f
extermination by our citizens against nil
Indians in Southern Oregon, who, by ro
cent acts appear to evince a determination
Io cany it uut, in violation of all treaty stip
ulations and (lie common usage, of civilized
nations, has induced me to take steps to
remove the friendly bauds of liiidians, now
assembled at Ft. Lano and upon Uiup(iia
reservation, tonnsiicampmeut on the head
waters of Yamhill River, distant about
sixty miles south-west of Vancouver, and
adjoining the coast reservation.
"This plan has been adopted with n view
of saving the lives of such of thoso Indians
as have given just and reasonable, assur
ances of friendship. The tremendous ex
citement among tlio miners "'' 'tilers in
thut country, goaded on by reslless and
lawless miscreants who slaughter uliko in
nocent and guilty of both si-xes, induced
those friendly bands to abandon the reser
vation and claim protection of the United
States troops s'atioued ut Ft. Lane."
These friendly Indian he desires to re
move to a more convenient locality for pro
tection and feeding them, but says :
"I have received intelligence that meet
ings of the citizens of Willamette Valley,
residing along the route to be traveled by
these Indians in reaching the. designated en
campment, as well as those in tho vicinity
of the latter, have resolved upon resisting
such removal, and avowing a determination
to kill nil who may be. brought among them
us well as those who sought to rfl'ect that
Ho calls for an escort to protect these
poor, defenseless creatures from wanton
slaughter, and proceeds to speak in the fol
lowing plain English t
"Believing, as I do, that the cause of the
present difficulty in Southern Oregon it
wholly to be attributed to the acts of our own
people, I cannot but fuel that it is our duty
io adopt such measures ns will tend to se
cure the lives of those Indians, and main
lain guarantees secured to them by treaty
stipulations, The future will prove, that
thit tear hat been forced upon those Indiant
against their will, and that, too, by a set
of reckless vagabonds, for pecuniary and
political objects, and sanctioned by a num
erous population, mho regard the treasury
'of the United States a ligilimatt object of
plunder. The Indians in that district have
been driven to desperation by acts of cruel
ly against their people ; treaties hare been
violated, and acU of barbarity committed
by those claiming to be citizens that would
disgrace the most barbarious nations of the
earth ; ami if none but those who perpe
trated such acts were to be affected by this
War, we might look upon it with indiffer
ence, but unhappily this is not thecas.
Bear in mind that he who makes this
Utement is a Federal office-holder appoint
ed by Gen. Pierce, who enjoys of all men
the best npportunitit of knowing the right
and wrong of this Indian contest. For my
part, I do not doubt that his statement
above quoted is the vital truth. H. c.

If the Roman Republic, in llio darkest

id und annexed a furtile and gorueou re
gion beyond thu Lybiun l'oscit, yet bud
neglected for ten years to connect that re,
L'ioii wl'h its earlier possession bv a sub
sluntiul, practicable highway, I have no
doubt that this neglect Would have subject
ed it to the grave rebuko of it historians
from rolybiu to Arnold, let it is now
nearly ten year since the American flu;
Im wuved in uudixputed ascendency ovc

a dreary, ltiiiupituOlu desert, (lie liuunt a
the wolf and the tuvuge, which a few hardy
pioneers annually tra verso with their rami
lie und herd at the cost of iufiiiito peri
mid sullering, losing a whole pauii in u
journey which might ba completed in ten
lays, and should bunt lurtlifst in ilrrty.
lo-uuy, i no letter eta miner in Ao'uJa,
pioneer on ru''et hound, to his wile in Iowa
or Missouri, must tiavel some, distance
weatwurd. then Voyai'O far southward' next
cross tlio lithuiu ol Uarien in a foreign
and emi-burliarou country, thence take
another voyage north eastwardly to New
lork, and now start nfresh on an overland
trip of twelve Io fifteen hundred mile north
by west to ii destination, making a circuit
of somovix or seven thousand mile to over
Come a distanco of less than two thousuud.
And t hero is no more need of traversing
this immense circuit than of sending letter
to S b ria on their way to Liverpool.
One ot the earliest and most practical
ugg'fctions for an overland route and mail
to California and Oiegou was that or Mr,
II O'Reilly the telegrapher. He petition
ed Congress to have the U. S ilruuo ms cm
ployed in building stockades at distances of
twenty miles each from Weston or ludrpwi
denco (Mo.) Io the nearest soitluinnnt in
California each stockade to contain accom
odations for twenty men and their horses.
A patrol from each would me t oue Irom
ual on cither side duily, receiving and de
livering a letter mail, so that cuch post
would daily give the hand to that on either
side of it, and the mere failure so to con
nect would be a signul of savage hostilities,
which would be imiiiodin'ely passed along
tho w hole line, followed by a concentration
offeree on tho point assailed. Each post
would inevitably ulterd a generous market
for the vale of vegetables, game, forage,
&&, at the same time affording protection
to settlers around it ; while the road daily
ru versed by the inuil-carrying patrols
would inevitably be improved and constant-
rendered more and more practicable.
Protection being thus vouchsafed, Mr. O'
Reilly oft-red to construct a telegraph line
along: tl.o whole route forthwith, asking no
nut of money or land from the liovorn-
ment, but finding associates willing to em
bark in the iiitrpri.e with a hope of gain.
Congress could never be inducod to act on
this project, though I can imagine none less
lin t are now throo bill oelora tlio
Senate looking to the establishment of an
Overturn! Mail to the Pacilic. They are
1. Mr. Welter's proposing that tlio P.
M General shall advertise for a weekly
nail to be conveyed in four-horse post-
coaches from the Mississippi River to San
rancisco in ninteen davs the first year and
seventeen for three years thereafter said
mail not to exceed three hundred pounds in
weight without ex'ri compensation, and
not to cost more than 250,000 per annum.
The contractors to i house their own road
(which is to be protected by military posts
utthe points mast exposed to savage attack,)
and to be. allowed 150,000 from the Trea
sury, to bo expended in making bridges,
sinking wells, itc, so as to render tho trip
at till times practicable,
2. Mr. r.rown's proposing to incorpo
rate n company to build a railroad and tel
egraph to California south of latitude 37 deg.
and, ns an incitement to build it, giving to
the corp . ra tors thirty (mile sqare) sections
of land for each mile in length of thu road ;
ulso, $5,000 per mi'e ns a loan, ('o bo so
cured by I'M mortgage,) wherewith to pur-cha-o
the iron ; also, $800 per mile per
annum for carrying the mails thereon until
the woik shall bo completed and for ten
years thereafter , lo, the right of way for
a width of four liuiulr. d feet.
3. Mr. Weller's Railroad and Telegraph
biil proposing to give a company twelve
miles in width of tlm Public Lands and
$25,000 per mile in Uuited States Six per
Cent Uouds, (the latter as a first mortgage
loan ;) alo, not more than $300 per mile
per annum for carrying the mails.
Such are substantially the leading pro
visions of the several bills now before the
Senate looking to tho opening of a direct or
overland mail-route to the Pacific. Mr.
Denver, from the Select Committee raised
on his motion, has reported a Railroad bill,
which I believe not vitally unlike that last
condensed to the House, hut it is not yet
printed ; I do entreat rather than hope
that this session may no close without
some decisive aud affirmative action on the
STThe Rev. Clinrles Stuart, Chaplain
in the Navy, and author of the well-known
work on the Sandwich Islands, says that
Louis Napoleon was not, during his resi
dence in America, either intemperate or dis
solute in his habits; but in the meantime
thero was in the city a young Prince of the
Bonaparte family who was. Thin was his
cousin, the son of Lucien Bonaparte, and it
is his errors which are Io this day ascribed to
