ami tnVt you have equal privilege
himself to defend public character, and
public acts. I intend sir, tliat you shall
havo no cause to complain of me for want
of courtesy ujward'you. Aa a private
citizen, and a gentleman I have nothing
tosav nualntt vou or your character: but
sir, as an editor or the first newspaper
published West of tho Rocky mountains,
a n public man expressing great rcvor.
encc for truth, and Iho "palladium of hu
man liberty" I have (not) a fow words to
say and should I call your attention lo
stateni) nts you have mado in tho Specta
tor Bt different limes, I hope you will be
able, and will be allowed to explain yourC
self in a manner satisfactorily to thai
Menus oi irutn. lou win rememoerejr,
that you was requested to explain a state
ment you made in llio Spectator for Au
gust ftth, 1847, umlor the caption "Ore.
gon and tho United Slates," you say at
tho closo of that article, "It is necessary
to stalo perhaps, that tho model of n law
which oloscs tho Trlbuno article, was
knocked into pi two or three year ago."
Was it so or was it not 7 The cliargo I
bring against you in this case is no more
nor let than wilful misrepresentation of
what you know to be not the case. If
from December 18th, 1840, to August Slh,
1847 seven months and eighteen days,
makes "two or thrco years" I wish to know
sir, how near you camo lo tolling tho
truth 7 Did you sir, in making that state
ment think that temperance would be
promoted thereby t and that when you ao
triumphantly threw back upon tho Tri
bune a statement, that nn ono would ever
bo ablo to correct you, or (.hat at least you
would enjoy tho benefit of this statemint
until it could bo corrected from sorao oth
er source. You will allow me to olose
this paragraph by quoting a word from
yourself sir, under date of January Slat,
1847, and subscribing moat heartily to the
sentiment there expressed, "Oregon
needs no (awdry ornaments, or false gloss
lo set oft her charms" and I fancy air,
that your statement respecting the Tri
bune's artiole is qulto aa superfluous and
gratuitous aa a statement of "a friend tij'
truth" was, whioh you at that time
was prompt to correct.
I havo called your attention lo one
slaicmont that you havo doubtlofs long
sinco forgotten, I will now speak of more
recent transactions, and in dolnu ao I wish
thtt yu and the publio generally better
understood, or it least appreciated and
were willing td act upon the principles
laid down In lb preamble to the' eonetlUK
lion -n loe Oregon Printing Association.
Hy personal aequaintsnen with a raajori-
ty of the stouklioldors who first engaged
and undertook lo get a press -JnVOre.
gon, enables ino lo say with considerable
assurance, that Iho promotion of tho causo
of temperance was one leading motive in
procuring that press. Sectarianism you
know, 1 excluded by the ooustllution.
Now str, please Inform me of Ike first
loading editorial article that has taken a
decided stand in favor of temperance.
Truealr, you havo In your paper "spoken of
certain aainpsranoe meetbsga, bat.lBava
generally noticed tho namo of some other
person attaclied lo tlwse notices, and that
most temperanoe articles are admitted to
your paper by special request. rtspw J
you assumed the Editorial chair you 1
knew what you contracted to do; among
your first duties was ''the promotion of
science, temperance," A;c. and no' exolu
sivoncss in politics. You know air, that
tho (Stockholder of that press havo ap-
pointed a board lo manage and superin
tend the whole or entiro printing concern,
or procure a porson to do no. How tboy
could reconcile yourcouno with the con
stitution and their duties to thciraasociatc
I Icavo with them to c'xptain. You ap.
pear lo think you havo obtained aqi-jitl
inumpn over litem in ucmg able rto main
tain your pot ai eilitor for al--Icat thirty
days longer." I hate notseen your ex
tra and know not what you atlemntctl to
do, or what sutements you made, unless
you havo published tho whole of it in the
Spectator for December 35th, 1847. If
that la your extra, I think you have- hut
little to complain of, for I confess air I
should have regarded your case with more
sympathy and good feeling had I never
read it. You say the bo.rd informed you
tha wight previous, that your services
were no longer required aa editor. Ton
Mam leXsn ear kins to hold your post, net
ao much for pwUke geoa;bM far aaaae-prl-
oaject rest have in view, that toUBbV
saeltkTT -M v,. p '
yockerriot it out, to and b
hold, it amounts to but little, and at most
itajmUic tltuitr, and in accomplishing
thla, to you all important object, you injure
yourself and very possibly some others.
You ought certainly to hare hnowntlaJ
nineteen twentieths or the people or ure
gon cared but little about Judge Thorn
ton, and less about any attempt of the
Legislature to mcddln with htm. Derides
air, you forgot that in J'our attempt to
atauuer llio leguiature, you injureu two
hundred inoccnt citizcus to touch one.
It appears to me, (I know not nor do I
care how others look upon this matter,)
that the whole concern was a private mat
ter in which you waa too deeply Involved
to net with becoming independence, and
the blow designed to be struck, chimed
in with your feelings and came out in "our
extra of this morning" in an attempt to
arouse "our clique" to maintain ourselves
as editor for & sjiccino and special pur.
Now sir, pray tell us, I say us, for I am
a citizen in common with thousands ofoth-
era in Oregon, what wcro the wholo pro
ceeding of our legislature From what
I havo seen in Iho Spectator, I regard
your statements about the legislature in
no better light than I would or did tho
anonymous statement made of tho Legis
lature for 1645. Y'ouglvo us what pleas
es you, and what you disliko you with

ing more. I agree with the board that
you had no businqssVtb rprble a single
resolution tnai was vuijuoorn, simpiy ue
cause il suited your purposo ; in doing so
you not only lowered yourself but per
verted the press or "palladium of human
liberty," aa you are pleated to term It, to
a most desperate and unbecoming object.
Your valedictory, I have not yet seen,
but I can anticipate its character from
what I have aeon. Your talents I res

Sib In a late number of your paper,
I find a very false and slanderous comsatl.
nication over the signature of "A. Q.'-' in
reference to myself j and must ak the
privilege of publishing a reply through
the same medium.
The writer, whom ' take to be aorae
djsappointed oAoe seeker, in Ida wrath at

..." ....".-.. . :. . -" i,
cJwractejr generaUy, bat pnrwmilarly in
reference to my aiiianthrneao ftillaajs and
sentimente lowarde tha Indian, he aaahes
use of a letter from ma to enakrranla fear
ihg Oregog last epring for this oountrgr,
wjiich was published in your paper; I
wherein ho not only perverts my anetTVT
meaning by hi pretend quotation from
that, but actually quotas' a sentence no
where to be found in the lctter.f "Kill all
the Indians you may find from Qjegon
to California." And this he exuitlngly
exclaims "is sufficient to tell the man."
I have said that you wero a participant
in this affair, because you suflered a
falsehood to go forth hero, uncommeated
on in reforenoe to n publication in yoar
own paper, whioh might easily have bean
corrected by turning to look at your Alee.
The following was the advice contained in
my letter to the company on the subject
of their Indian relations:
"Treat the Indian kindly along tho
road, but trust them not though you risk
nothing In a couple hunting apart frojslhe
mainbody along Iho whole route. After
you get to tho SItklu mountain, uaeyour
pleajuro In spilling blood, but were I trav
eling with you, from thl on to your first
sight of tho Sacramento valley, my only
communication with these treacherous,
cowardly and untamcablo rascals, would
bo through my rifle. The character
of their country precludes the Idea of
making peaco with them, or their ever
maintaining treaties if made: ao that
philanthropy must be aet aside in cases or
necessity, and eelf preservation here dic
tates theso savages being killed orTaa
soon as possible After getting into tha
Sacramento valley, you will find good In.
dlans and peaceable."
It oaS be seen from thla extract, how
far the article referred to has done aw jus
tice, aa out of 800 miles travel thesis
lance from Oregon City to thla ptaoe, along
the whole of whioh route Indiana 'feral
bo'met wlthJ hava-advised bosUlfttea
against tham ef ant one hundred. And
thla because whJtaa have aver anJhrad
here from pursuing a different peBey.
I might adduoe several arguments in fla
vor of my aoaltioa, or at any rata In ex
