Tha Oregnn Auxiliary Tract Society
held its eighth annual meeting at Salem,
May 15th, 1830.
The report of tho Secretary evinced nn
increased interest in tho cnuse, and a more
systematic plan for fulfilling the purpose
of tho Society. The Depositary has found
it difficult to supply the demand for books
nnd tracts. Tho Agent for tho Messcnyer
and Child'1 Paper, R. H. BnovdiTON, of
Oregon City, is filling orders every week
for these publications, besides furnishing
packages fir freo distribution.
The Treasurer reported a sound and safe
condition of our finances.

of the Democratic parly, and appointees ol
tho President hiinselt, not aiioweu a ue
fense t Gen. Palmer, who was attneked in
the public sessions of tho Legislature, wan
refused, on his application, a hearing: my
enso was entirety secret.
It may be suggested, that the caucuses
being held in the same town, I might have
enquired and investigated. My answer is,
tli.it I l.acl nreviouslv oitcred my rcigna
lion, of which Gen, Lane was fully apprised
by me, at bin departure in September lust
iliai I tiwnrd of memorials being sent on,
but wu aware ol no charges j and thero
was never the slightest ntlusion lo my or
fice in ihu tiublio sessions.
I had heard of t-o prev ious petitions, for
my place, of which I took no notice oe
cause I was not apprised of their contents
and they were harmless, as I trust this is,
in Washington. If 1 hud been allowed the
privilege of a defense against these charge,
1 could have shown, what I will cive a
siiminarr of, for tho satisfaction of those
who are dear to me. Of the first stain
men!, that I declined to rill tip the 'notifi
cation' of lund claimants to myself: I
did not conceive it lo bo my duty under the
law: and certaintv that I was not author
ized to employ the clerks of tho office for
that purpose without instructions from the
commissioner of tho General Land Office,
particularly as the former commissioner
had authorized my predecessor, Mr. Preston
himself, to perform that service nnd charge
the settlers fees therefor which I declined
to do. I could have shown
1st. That the charge of my br ing "ty ran
nical, arbitrary and petulant" towards cti
zens who have land claims is a bold false
hood by tho general voice of the Terri
2d. That I am "nearly' eighty years of
ego, is known to all your city to be tnlsc.
3d. As to tho examination of field notes
being delayed : no Surveyor has ever made
a complaint but Ano, ( Murphy) whose notes
when returned were incomplete, and wnoin
I was obliged to send back into tho field
to finish his neglected sub division surveys
in parts of tlireo township as could ue
seen by the maps in the General Land Of

b'oujiht with me, nnd call whigsand know
nothing. Busey was neither whig nor
know nothing w hen he came ont in 193,
(ihu know nothing had no existence then in
Washington,) and I discharged him in 54;
Mr. Thompson, nn accomplished draughts
man, is a democrat whom know as such
in New York, but ho did not fraternize willi
the "Salem clique." lie did not come oul
with me, but was an immigrant to Califor
nia in '49, nnd came here in '51. Of Jono.
(ihe messenger) who was always a demo
crat, the same remark applies.
5th. Of Mr. Belden, whom they calt nn
"avowed whig and knownothing," tho mis
representation is quito as palpable, lie
was an "old line" whig, and refused to join
tho knownothings when npplied to. He is
l he most accomplished draughtsman and
surveyor in this, or any oilier territory, and
had great experience in tho office. His
services could uot, with any regard for the
public interest, bo dispensed with.
6th. Of the last churge, perhaps the
boldest falsehood ol nil, tha' is awarding
survey coiitri'e.ts to deputies, Ac, "his chief
requirement in nualiiicutioil, h9 been nnd
now is, thai the applicant dots not belong
to the democratic party of Oregon," is, to
uso an apt comment, "made out of whole
stuff." Tho records of tha General Land
Office show the names of all tho principal
surveyors, who havo been, ns they are
known to be here, democrats to wit:
Messrs. Rmler Ives, Gocrgo W. Hyde,
Wells Luke, (my former chief' clerk.) Har

clerk, Lafayette Cartee. (once democratic
speaker Daniel Murphy and his son, Col.

There is one remarkable thine in the net-
