tied. While In camp, after the Von Nor
mans left, we kept alive by hunting every
thing wo could. The Indiana would bring
salmon to trade Tor any little thing we
could apart, such as needle, pins, the rags
on our backs, till we were reduced to a
aCute of nokodness. Mr. Clime . ate too
hearty a meal one tiny on aalmon, which
threw him into the hiccough; lie died one
night, we knew not when, and we buried
him next day. After we had sold every
tiling, the IndiitiiH refused to bring any
more salmon unless we would give them
our gun, which we did not wish to do, but
they were determined to have them; so I
buried my revolver nud oininunition. The
Indium took the guns, and gave us lint
salmon they plciisnri, and promised more,
which they never brought. One of the
Trimble boys volunteered to go homo with
the ludinns, and do what he could to in

used him very kindly fed him, and gnve

Arrival of the Pony Express
OlflQOXT CITY I
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1800
Since the election of Col. Baker to the
U. S. Semite, the lying organs of fnnotl
clsm have been trying to create the inipres
sion that Bakor enlisted the influence of
certain meu In his behulf, by promising to
use his Influence with tlie expected In
coming Lincoln administration for the pro
curement for them of some of the important
appointments nt the President's disposul in
this State. Now, this kind of a whine
nothing new it lias been heard in every
State in tin; Union, every time U. S. Sena
tors Imve been elected. We all recollect
how the Democratic papers howled at the
time Simeon Cameron beut John V. For
ncy for the U. S. Senate in Pennsylvania
how they charged that Waeonsellcr,
Lubo, Menear, mid other Democrats who
voted for Cameron bud been " bought."
Whenever a Senator succeeds in defeating
rival candidates, it seems to be a very easy
way for disappointed, chagrined, and mad'
deued rivals to let themselves down easily
by crying out that the successful candidate
"bought em bought 'em doi'uiit ':
Especially is this coarse to be looked for
iu uelcatecl demagogues and low flung
puppioi like the organs of sectionalism in
this Slato who cannot possibly account for
the fact that members of the Legislature
overlooked their own mighty importance
except by the supposition thut their ryes
wero dazzled by gold in the palm of the
successful candidate, or that they wero
swayed by the promiso of office These
demagogues nru so much In tlio habit of
doing everything for " pay" of being
" bought" with " ten plants," " butter kegs
a deer ulong, and that I might find a piece and other considerations, that it is not in
to tuko homo. But I found iiothimr ex- their hearts to conceivo tlmt. men kImhiM

ecpt a lock of liuinun hair, which I took
homo, uud which was recognized as the
boy's, (dipt. Dent followed up this sign,
nnd round u head, an iirni, and somo tilings
showing tho boy hud been killed. ) On my
way liuine thut day, I found the carcass of
a horse that tho wolves had deserted:
picked up a shank and touk it to camp, and
you may guess thero was but little meat on
it wheu the kiotns left it. Wo used that
whole carcass; we burnt the bones nnd uto
them, and the skins we rousted. When
we could find a piece of a carcass, we made
use or it ; wc wero getting so weak tjiat
wo could scarcely walk ubout. Wo nto
weeds, grass, nud anything nt nil we could
Jind. Starvation wus staring us iu tho face.
Filially one of the children died; we cut it
up nnd ale mid so on till wo had eaten
three of them. Tlio mother help ent her
own children. Mrs. Chase lust all her
children but one. Somo Indians came
nlong ouo day and dug up Mr. Chase
uouy tor tlio n-w rugs it lind on. We
mudo up our minds to try und cut him
so wo cut him iu tuiiull pieces, a duy's ra
lion iu n piece but before wo began
roasting, dipt. Dent and party cnmoulon,
just in timo to save us from that awful
meul! Tho body hud been buried over ten
days. We saved every one of our chil
dren, nud Mrs. Chaso might huve saved
Imrs, if sho Imd not been so selfish; she
liven too well herself und starved her child.
She would scold my wife bucnuso we gave
our children so much; she argued that wc
were nil bound to die right there, and that
it wns better that tho children should die
lirst, than Tor us to dio nud leave our chil
dren to tho mercy of tho wolves but my
wire suid sho believed that Providence
would yet deliver us, nil thut we should
nil try to keep nlivo us long ns possible.

by other than sordid motives.
Now this cry of " bribery'' that has been
raised iu Oregon by the Clarri.ioniuns, Irce
lovers, and Yanecyitcs, is so contemptible
nnd devoid of cvidenco that wc have nevtr
thought it worth while to notice it. We
shouldn't hnvo changed our purpose now,
hut for the fact that publications have been
made iu soma of tho disunion organs to the
effect that protended Republican had au
thorized tho statement thut Col. Baker had
farmed out the offices among ids friends,
nnd that we with others had been "prom
ised" something. Now as to what under
standing tuny exist between Col. Baker and
other Republicans, we ofcour.se know noth
ing nono but the parties interested and
their (lod can know. But wc have a be-
lief in tho matter, and after carefully
watching nil the wires tinit huvo been pulled
in Oregon for the lust eight years, our 6r-
iV is so strong that wo would bo willing
to risk our life on it that w hut is true of
tho relations existing between ns and our
esteemed Senator, is equally true of the
relations existing betwvru Col. Baker nnd
nil of his other friends iu Oregon. Now,
so far as ire are concerned, we propose to
set this flouting cuhimny nt rest forever by
a statement which we think ull who know
us will believe n statement which wo ore
willing to make under oath if necessary to
aii t wry our Democratic friends. We hope
thut they will bear in mind that tho same
Democratic editor who has given circulation
to this miserable slander has already told
hh readers that "JYo man ntquainted with
the editor of the Arena would mill.!,
ttUment in question."
Our statement is this that thero is no
understanding between us nud Col. Baker
ns to tho disposition of any ollice iu Oregon
or elsewhere in case of Lincoln's election.
That iu nil the communications that have
ever taken place between us. cither hv
word of mouth by letter (we never wrote
him n letter, neither did he ever write us
one), or by tho agency of friend, the
subject of tho distribution of federal pat
