For Hie Oregon Spectator.
" Onr story in good until another is told."
Mil. Kditoii I discover in your worthy
little pnpor, tho Spectator, some complaints
in regard to tho price of wheat, goods, &c. ;
and the idea of a man wanting a pair of
pantaloons with only one leg, nounds rather
qunre. Now, Mr. I'Mitor, what is the true
.state of affair in Oregon, as it regards
prices, produce, &c. 7 Why, Sir, just about
so, so far as my knowledge goes. I notice
that the man who grows wheat in Oregon is
well provided with every thing comfortable ;
ho has plenty of good clothes, a barn well
stored with grain, and good credit ; and a
bout his farm you will sec cows, horses, ox-
en, lings, and himself attending to his busi
ness, probably whistling Yankee Doodle, or
hamming over some tune that will lead you
to belinvo that he is happy, or that his mind
is employed. He has but little to say about
politics, and is glad he came to Oregon, and
says never was r. new country o blessed as
this ; a man can have, and docs have means,
who will work, and work or no work, ho has
good health. Now, Mr. Editor, there ure
others who havo not been long here, what is
their situulion ? Why, Sir, they are on
their claims, hard at work, in good spirits.
If he is a?i industrious man, and his neigh,
bors know it, if he has no means, they step
forward and offer to him nil he requires, or
more than he expected, to go on with his
work ; and must we leave out the merchants
in this country ? no sir, without wc wish to
state what is not so. But lately, it is not such
a common thing to give credit as formerly,
but even at this time there is more of it giv.
en than in any part of the States that 1 am
acquainted with. It is with much regret
that I hear so much complaint about the
merchant, particularly by those who have
but little or nothing to soil, and likely to,
after receiving a pretty Inrge credit. I came
to this country before any of the merchants
commenced business, save the Hudson's Bay
Company, and have dealt with all mora or
loss. I do not hesitate in saying that, to.
gcther, they have trusted out to the people
of Oregon one hundred thousand dollars, and
that, too, boforo there was any way to col.
lect the same by law, but took our word for
our several accounts, until such time as we
could pay ; nor do I know of any merchant
who has pressed any ono of us, although wo
could havo paid them before wo did, but
with great patience have waited and said
nothing. Those who have taken our wheat,
from what I can sco, do not wish to take any
more, and nomo will not. As a matter of
course, it must follow that they cannot sell
it to pay them for their trouble, and to force
upon a merchant what the does not want, is
much easier done in Oregon than any place
I know of.
Mr. Editor, I am not in favor of sending a
delegato to the States with a petition for
merchants particularly, to do a losing busi
ness; but should thoy come, which in all
conscience I hope they may, Jet us try to
encourage them all we can, and that too
without grumbling ; and not fly in their faces
at all points for wanting to do what is natural
for every man to do, and what we ourselves
do every day of our lives to get what we
can for what we have to noil. So far tho
merchants of Oregon may boaRt, that they
havo done much ior this community. Can
wo do the same hy them 1 1 ask every can
did mm who knows anything of business.

May never bear me, dearest, to thy side.

Alas! I irtrive in vain in dreams in dreamt
