By request we publi&h tho following
2ic"lutSoHs of the Owjon Pres. of the
L umberland I'rcsbyt -r nn ( hvrch.
1. Whereas, a pamphlet has recently
I appoatvd in our midst entitled '-Protea-
tauK-iiu m Uiciron, pubusneu by oue u.
B. A. Brouillett, a priest of the sect of
Home, dated at New York, 1853, and
ptirportiiio; tu CJPtain a detailed account
uf the Whittnan n.Ubacre and its cause!1.
2. Arid wheoeas, the said pamphlet
contains many statements reflccfiti": irreat
discredit upon the early I'rotcstant Mis
slonaries iu Oregon, ami particularly up
on the lamented Dr. Whitman, llev. II.
II. Spauldinjr, and their Painted wives.
3. And whereas, it is attempted to be
shown in said pamphlet that the massacre
of the Whitmau family and others was
the result of the improper bearing of Dr.
Whitman and llev. II. II. Spaulding
atuon the Indians. ; ; ;
4. And whereas, to our astonishment
we find Paid pamp'et published in Kx.
Doc. No. 3$, 35th Congress, 1st session,
House of Representative, accompanying
a letter from: J. Ross Browne, special
aent.of Treasury Department, to the
Commissioner ol Indian A fTjiir., datcd'at
Sau Frane!sco, Dee. 4th, ISoT.
Now, there lore, it is resolved by this
Presbytery : , :
1st. That it is the opinion of this Pres
bytery, from a multitude of most reliable
testimony, now before us on the subjectt
that the unfavorable statements,, made in
the pamphlet referred to in ihe precctd
io preamble concerning tho early Prot
estant Missionaries in Oregon, are in the
highest degree, false and slanderous.
2d. That this Presbytery regtrda it,
not only as a duty, but as an esteemed
privilege to express her confidence in tho
c I) a rue cr of the late Dr. Marcus, Whit
man, possessing, ia a laro degree, the
element of a: true Christian eha-ae.tor
and native goutiness of heart, nud. purity
of life. s And, that, to his labors more
than to any other one man we arc indebt
ed for preventing, what is now the State
of Oregon and Territory of Washington,
from failing into the hands of the British
Government. To render which nerrice.
to our Government and the caue of Pnt
estanism, Dr. Whitman performed a
jouruey across iho continent in midwinter.5-
: : ;''" :..;'".i ; ' v.".- i ''.. '--' ':---
3d. That what has been said of the
merits of Dr. Whitman as a man and t
christian of high moral worth is affirmed,
a'so, and with equal pleasure, of llev. II.
H. -Spaulding,, who, iu the order, of a kind
providence, is now speuding tho evening
of his life in our midst, happily surroun
ded by his children and his children's
children. '.. , , v f
And further, it affords us great pleas
ure to endorse what has been ' often af
firmol by others that r Bev. U. 'Hj
Spaulding, and his ? amlJable and accoui
plishcd wife, now in llevon, have doce
umro through their labors Uis-i M issiona
rics, to civilize and;christi:inuo;aho Ne
Perces tribe, of Indians than tho Govern.
n.eut has ever been able to aceomplisn by

Mr.-Grccle; gets up at 3 o'clock -in
the morning ; foi it is one of his favorite
maxims thaj only early trisiug can keep
tho health unimpaired and , the brain

household and assembles them in the

the beautiful lines :

"Eaily to bed and early to riso
s Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wlna,'
he appoints each iwlividual's task for the
day, 'and sets him at it with encouraging
words, and goes back to bed again. I
mention here, in no faultfinding spirit,
"trill with the deflerctico due to a man who
is older and worthier and wiser than 'I,
that he snores awfully. Iu a momept of
irritation, once, I; was rash enough t to
say that I never would sleep with M.im
until he broke himself of this uufortunate
habit.'; I have kept my word with; big
oted and uuwaveriog determination.! -
At half past 11; o'clock' M r. Greeley
rises again. He considers that there is
great virtue and economy in shaving
himself. He docs it with a dull razor,
sometimes humming a part of a tune, (lie
knows pait of a tune, and takes an inno
cent delight io regarding it as the first
half uf Old Hundred; but parties famil
iar with that hymn have felt obliged to
confess that they don't recogB'ZJ it, and
therefore the noise he makes is doubtless
an original composition of Mr. Greeley's),
and sometimes when the razor is es
pecially dull, he accompanies himself
with a formula like this: "Datua the
d d razor and tha d d outcast who
made it I" . : -
He then goes out into his model garden
and applies his vast store of agricultural
knowledge to the amelior .tion . of his
cabbages;- after which he ?writc an ag
ricultural article for, the instruction of
American farmers, his soul cheered the
while by the reflection that if cabbages
were worth 11 a piece, his model iarm
would pay. , - ..
. He next goe3 to breakfast, which is a
frugal abstemious meal . with : him, and
consisis or nowuon out. lustsucti intnirs
as the market affords, nothing more.
He drinks nothing but water, and tea,
arid Scotch ale, and lager beer, and lem
onade with a flj iii it sometimes a house
fly and sometimes a horsefly, according
to the amount of inspiration required to
warm him up to his daily duties. " Dur
ing breakfast he- reads "the Tribune all
through, and enjoys the- satisfaction of
knowing that 'all the best things1 in if,
written - by' Cooke, and Hassan, and
mjself, are attributed to him by a confid
ing and infernal public. ?
After breakfast he writes a short edi
torial, aud puts a large dash - at the be-

He is the most painstaking and elaborate
man about getting up his dress that lives
in America. . This is his rhiefest and
pleasantest foible. He puts on his old '

idatcd J,iat, turuit wrong side before,
antl cants it on to the back of his head, .
and jams an extra dent in the side, of it.
He puts on his most atrocious boots, and . ,
