A New Year.
What Is a year? Tis but a wavo
Oa lifts' dark rolling stream,
Which Is so quickly gone tbat wo
Account It but a dream,
lis but a single earnest tbrob
Of Time's old Iron heart.
Which tireless now and strong as when
It lint with llfo did start.
What Is a year! Tis but a turn
Of Time's old braicn wheel
Or but a page upon the book
AVbich death must shortly seal.
Tis but a step upon the road
Which we must travel o'er.
A few moro steps and wo shall walk,
life's weary road no more.
Kind patrons ! cro another issuo of tlio
Gazette reaches you, another year will
havo been numbered with tho irrevocable
past, and you will have- entered upon a
New Yeah 1855. It is well for Individ-
bnla aud communities, occasionally." i
for a tuna relinquish their contentious
wranglinga upon tlio world's stage dis
nemo for a day with ''busy care," and
"mako a noto of passing time," and also of
passing events, to look about us and ob
servo how tho world is progressing, as well
as our own Individual interest. Situated
as wo aro in Oregon, thousands of miles
from our nativo homes, and many, very
many, from all thoso thoy hold most dear
tlio greetings of "A Happy Now-Year,"
fills tho minds of many with anything but
pleasant reflections. Associations, that ac
cording to tho naturo of things in this tran
sitory world, cannot always bo onjoyed
.familiar scenes that occurred many years
since, como crowding on tho mind. Thoso
"good old times" that were, when sleigh
bells jingled, and tho harmless merry joko
passed round, and maidens laugh rang joy
ously on tho cool and freshening breeze, and
"all went merry as a marriage bell ; and
then, the "eve," when "youth and pleasure
met, to greet tho hours with glowing feot."
Theso and other reflections aro calculated
to cast a gloom upon tho minds of many
-who Iiavo fixed their homes In tlio wilds of
tho far distant west. And
"We are growing old how tho thought will rise
tviien a glance u uacicwaru cut
On some long remembered spot, that lies
In tho silence of tho past :
It may bo the shrine of oar early vows,
Or tho tomb of early tears ;
But it seems like a far ofT islo to us,
In the stormy sea of years."
Eventful '5-1 ! volumes could not contain
the record of tho varied scenes that havo
been played in thy short reign. Wars, In
surrections, casualties, mobs and political
have filled tlio exciting programmes thai havo
been laldbeforo us week after week. Tbcro
' was a time when publishers could placo be
fore thoir readers on "Now Year," every
thing that had occurred the previous twclvo
months ; but tho titno has past, at least in
America, altogether too much progression
for that Impossible I
Another year has fled ! What liavo wo
all accomplished! Lot us ask ourselves if
wo have dono any great good for ourselves
or our fellow man. Happy tlio man and
the woman who can say that thoy improv
ed tho time so mercifully given them for tho
happiness of their fellow beings for tho
relief of tho destitute; that thoy havo made
easy tho pillow of tho sick, and tho afflicted;
' that they havo Improved tho moments in
gaining wisdom for themselves and making
thoso happy who nre their companions
through life. In-ourrclloctions on tho past
if wo find tlml our notions havo been dif
ferent, tho host thing wo can do is to ''turn
over a now loaf" on tho first day of Jan
uary, 1855, Suppose wo try it.
Respected patrons i It is not necessary to
inform you thnt tho Gat.ktti: is in a nour
ishing condition; you nil know that; and
that you might as well try to mnko tho
Uiiipqua run up stream, as to stop its reg

Bout tally necessary for us to impart to you
somo valuable information, an idea "'which

Wo understand that sho had scarcely nuy

thoir enterprise with this slight nccident, as
Coos undoubtedly possesses a good harbor

men who advertiso liberally, want to do

than any ono else. Wo are confident that
wo will hear no talk of "hard limes" this
winter, as tlio regular trips of tho Souther'

while a good road to tlio interior, gives us
increased facilities for furnishing the miners
with everything thoy require nt rates which
no other placo can competo with. Pack
trains aro already begin nidg to fill our
Deow.ned. Tlio mnil carrier between
this placo aud Yoncalla, had his horso
drowned on his trip last Monday, In n Email
stream which empties into the Elk, called
"Tom Folly's Creek." When ho nrrived
at tho creek it was so swollen from tlio re
cent heavy rains that ho thought it unsnfu
to attempt to rido through it with tho mails.
So ho carried them across by walking on a
log over tho stream, and then went back
and attempted to drivo his horso over
and Immediately on getting him into tho
stream, ho washed down nt so rapid a rato
that it was Impo'ssiblo to keep sight of him,
says our informant.

Patouts to l.aiuli In )ri;!i.
Tho following letter, which lma, been
sent to the editor of tlio Statesman, shows
why it Is, that tho people of Oregon Imvo
not received patents to their lands, after
fulfilling tho requirements of tho law. It
seems thai tlio blnmn rests upon .Mr. Pres
ton, tho former Siirveyor-Gelioinl, as has
been icpeatctlly charged against that gen
Gkmeuai. La.ni Orritii:, )
Oct. HO, 1MI. S
Slit : In answer to your inquiry of tho
'J Uli hist., as to tho cause of tho delay in
issuing patents for tho donation cluiius in
Oregon, 1 havo tho honor to state :
That by tlio instructions of 10th March,
1851, from this otlico to tho surveyor-gen.
oral of Ortuon, thnt ollicer was directed as
follows: "When tlrj tract is described by
metis nnd bounds, i special plat of the. lot
ii to accompany the certificate ; am) irith it
you trill alio transmit the original title iki
pcrs, retailing copies in "your ojlicc."
On examining tlio act of tho -7tli Siqit.,
1S50, tho necessity nnd propriety of thoso
instructions will bo perceived, nnd that
without tho special plats thus requireil
there would havo been no certainty that tho
same lauds, in part at least, was not in
cluded in different patents. Such conllicts
of tithi would have been nsourcoof uueen.
sing nnd harrnscing litigntion, and tho put.
cuts, under such circumstnnces.would havo
been n positive evil, instead of n benefit.
This course wns necessary, moreover, to
enable this otlico to dotcrniino whothur tliu
requirement of tho 15th section of the act
had been complied with, which directed
that theso claims should bo taken as nearly
as practicable, by legal subdivisions.
These wero tho Instructions under which
tho surveyor-general wns required to act,
and tho reasons In part, for those instruc
tions. With n letter of 10th October, 1 8.1:1,
ho sent on seventy of theso claims, num.
bored from 1 to 70, being thoso for which
certificates had been issued by him from
the 1st July to tho ,'IOth September, 1S.VI.
Theso wero received when tho duties of
tho otlico wero so pressing in prcpraring for
tho sonion of Congress as to leave no time
for taking them out of their regular courso
of examination. This prcisuro continued,
as you aro aware, nnd it was not till early
in May, that tliu necessary Unto could In)
given "to their adjudication. It was then
ascertained that these instructions had been
entirely disregarded, nnd tho cases were
returned on tlio 17th of that month, that.
those instructions might bo complied with,
iexcipt as to somo which wero rejected for
I intcrfirunccs with town sites, or because
tney Had neeti iisueu to persons who uied
before tho paisago of tho act, and n very
few which it was thought might bo passed,
as the lauds in them aro described by sub
divisions of sections.
On the 120th .May, 1851, n second ab
stract was received from tho surveyor gen
eral, of tho claims for which certificates has
been issued by him between the .'10th Sep.
tcmbor, 1S53, and II 1st March, 185 1, num
bered from 71 to 115. 'Ilieso claims wero
found to bo in tho samo condition with tho
foregoing, and were returned with similar
exceptions, for liko causes. Of tho wliolo
number thus returned by tho i,urveyor-gen-oral,
only about twenty can be carried
into patent. Of tho reasons why this wns
not dono nt once in thcio cases, I am not
ablo to ndviso you, at tho gentleman who
bad charge of this branch of business is
dad. It Is probablu ho thought it advisa
ble to withhold them till tho return of tho
others, that they might all bo issued togeth
er. I havo no doubt, howovor, that his
reasons wero sound, as ho was n most ablo
and efficient officer. I havo directed tho
patents to bo isiiicd in theso cases, howev
er, and they will bo transmitted in a fow
days, and you advised of tho fact.
It has, been intimated, that words used in
tho'instructious above referred to, relative
to tho receipt, and temporary arrangement
of the claim;, justified tho withholding of
tlio original proot. 1 no copies wliuld liavo
answered equally well, if tlio special plats
of tho lurvoys had been transmitted ;'n
thoso cares whero tho lands wore described
by course nnd distances, and bonco tho
claims described by tho subdivision of sec
tions wero not returned.
Theso plats, howover, wero Indispcma.
bly necessary, and the failing to send them
was a disregard by the survoyor-genornl of
tho specifiu instructions above quoted,
which is much regretted, as it has been tho
chief, and indeed tho only causo,of tho do
lay in issuing tho patents.
I am, sir, with great respect,
Your obedient sorvant,
