would no longer bo, required as editor of
the- Oregon Spectator. After son.e few
remarks concerning the matter, n motion
was madn to lay I ho resolution on tho ta
ble, for tho present, for the purpose of In-
funning Mr. C. of tho fact, and to give
him tlm opportunity of resigning rather
than to havo the resolution of his dismissal
upon the journal. Thi was unanimously
greed to, at least, no one mado any oh.
jatnion, nor was there cvon man, who
made any objoetkxis to tho resolution, or
who sroke Is. favorof -Mr. Curry as Kditor;
Imt trSite"fO.ta- My sarrvtmu ibe pa
per, agreed, that il was on tho downward
inarch, and that it was very unpopular,
and that but littlo interest was taken lu tho
rusal of its columns. 1'lie princijiul
complaint was, that we got no local news;
thnt Iho pages nf the Oregon Spectator
were destilula of any information of Ore
gon; Hint extracts romposeu the greater
part of tho editorial labor, and that it did
not advocate Tompcraucu or Morality,
but with a reluctant spirit. This Mr. Hdi-
tor, was about tho sum total of tho first
meeting. It was agreed to, by tl e bnanl,
that Mr. Lovejoy should speak to Mr.
Curry the next day upon the, subject, and
we expected as a matter of course, that Im
would resign Inunodiately, for tin- reason
that ho had said as much on tho evening of
the annual meeting, which was to this ef
fect. " Tell Nowell ihnt in case the lioard
mi cts to night, to lender my resignation."
I inferred from thai, and huvu lit aril Mr.
Curry say, thnt he never would wait lo he
turned out, hut would leav.i when ho snw
auy thing nf tho kind,, or knew of it, I
thought ii wasJusticu to Mr. Curry lo tell
him, belore Wo resolution passed, of tho in.
lentionofthe board ofdirectors, and would
havodono it in v self, had I known before
tho meeting took place, of tho Intention of
tlmgeiillcmuii who introduced iho rosolu
lion; hut, I knew nothing of tho kind, and
did not expect il that night. At lids timu
Ihero wasatnlk of gelling another editor,
but nothing definite. Ueforo Mr. I.ove-
joy saw Mr. Curry iho noxt morning, somo
one of Iho board of directors had inform
ed Mr. C. uf tho o veiling 'h proceedings,
which frustrated our most sanguino ex
pectations. From that lime, Mr. Curry appeared
much displeased with tho lioard of direc
tors, nnd his countenance betrayed his de
sire to publish any thing that would bo
unpleasant lo them, or injurious to tho as
sociation. Tho board met at the time ap.
.ji few evening after tho first
meeting. Mr. Lovejoy waa absent, Mr,
llrooks askod to bo excused as he had
some writing to no, ami consequently ten.
Tho board of directors proccedodto bus),

versation, some ono, I think myself, men
tioned that the resolutions concerning, J.
Q. Thornton were about to be published.
One of the member laughingly remarked
that he thought there wa much nt tier of

tlail he should drop oft" Im suddenly and

siy, " they should be conspicuously kept

has taken lids course to excuse himself,
for tho failure he lis mado in editing tlm
paper ns ho wants us to bclievo that if
lie lias cuinmiltc-d any error, It is not of the
heart. This may bo true. I asked Mr.
Curry as politely as I knew how in be.
half of tlio President and directors, not to
publish those resolutions, but at the saane
time told him, llicy did not say he should
not publish them ; I also asked him as a
favor not to publish them, but never said
