Ho. Fabmbii: The beginning of August,
IMS, fonnd the ploneir settlers of Oregon in
comparative repulse. The first great excite
ment which had so thoroughly agitated the
people of the sparsely settled Territory, and
taxed the meager resources of the Provisional
Government to its utmost capacity In dovls
Ing means for prosecuting the Cay use war,
had well nigh subsided. The time for which
the troops forming the first regiment of
mounted volunteers placed in the field under
command of Col. Noll Gilliam, expired early
In July. Although the principal part of the
hostile Cayuses had been driven from the
home of their fathers in the beautiful valleys
lying to the westward of the B'ue mountains,
and were now hundreds of miles away amid
the luxuriant pastures of the buffalo, thore
were still left numerous small bauds ot
predatory Indians in the valleys between the
Cascade and Blue mountains. Though mt
immediately implicated in the inhuman
massacre at Waillatpu Mission, thry were,
nevertheless, on all occasions when circum
stances favored success, dangerous enemies
of the Americans. Under this condition of
affairs, It became the duty of those in au
thority, if possible, to keep Forts Dalles and
Waillatpu strongly, garrisoned, the Provisi
onal Government being without the neces
sary means of paying the troops in the field
who had experienced a rough campaign dur
ing the six months just pasted, having left
the Willamette Valley, as most of them did,
in mid winter, aud so fur as pertained to the
comforts of camp life, were illy equipped.
The volunteers bod erecied at Walilatpu
an adobe fort, where n considerable quantity
of military stores bad been collected. Ihu
hostile Indians were alike enemies of all
persons belonging to the several missionary
establishments located east of the Cascade
mountains, with the exception of one UDder
charge of Father Brouilet'e, Vicar Genrr.il
of the Walla Walla Catholic Mission, then
located on the Umatilla river, at a pl.vo
known at a later day as Fort Henriotta.
Fourteen valuable lives, including the Dr.
aud Mrs. Whitman, bad been most lnhu
manly sacrificed in nn earnest attempt to nd
minister to tho'pititual and trmpoial wains
of Ibose blood thirty savages of tlio plilns.
But, luckily, all tlio remaining missionaries
in the upper country bad been timely es
cor Jed boyond dancer from the savage foe.
The tnno of service for which tho troops had
enlisted was now about lo expire, and the
question arose, who among Oregou's pioneer
soldiers would again volunteer to remain at
Fore Waillutpu, to keep the Indians in sub
Jeit:on, and guard the publlo property? as
uiAiiy of thom hud families in tho infant
settlements, whose pinching circumstances
truly needed tlioir preseuce at home. First

poeg, followed by sixty-three brave volun
teers from the different companies, all of
whom remained laitbfnliy guarding the

At tho liweof which I wrl'p, perhaps a more
uniitd, hospitable, and contented people
wrn no s here liotveon the Atlantic and Pa.
ciflo oceans to be fontid, than were tlio pio
neer seulers of iho WOlainetto Valley. IVit
btforo the close of Augurtt, ISIS, this lull
fre.m the exciting times through which tbo
per.ple nf the new-born Government of the
Noitb Pacific had but list passed, were again
to Uiarouued by a strungo kind of monetary
nnnunotion from a. innre distant field, and
campground now Included within the limits
of Salem, which was attended by peisins
from nearly every settlement in the valley.
Among tbe clergy present on the occasion
may be named Revs. .Leslie, Waller, Parrisb,
Garrison, Uosford, Holm, Fackler, Wilbur,
Roberts, and others. It was upon the out
skirts of this ancient campground that the
writer beheld for tbe. first time men fully
equipped in their then primitive style, en
route for tbe "gold diggings."
On our way home, situated at tho lower
end of French Prairie, we mot single indi
viduals and small parties hurridly rushing
for some point up the valley they know not
where, to await tbo collection of a sufficient
force to enable them to pass with some de
gree of safety tho country of hostile Indian
tribes that infested tbe route for soveral hun
dred miles between tho Wlllametto Valloy
and their colossal fortunes, which all were
now fo sanguine .lay awaiting them in the
golden sands beyond. No profession, age, or
condition among men seemed to be exempt
from attack of this new and all pervading
type of yellow ever.
On reaching homo I found several persons
from Oregon City awnlting my return, all
desirous of making an outfit for that land,
the beds of whoso rivers wero said to be
paved with glittering pold, among whom was
a Mr. Barnard, an old neighbor, who had
sold his farm the previous fall to Win, Whit
ney, and gone to California, but now just re
turned by tbe Honolulu, ready to confirm
tbe hitherto almost incredible reports of the
abounding wealth of our sister Territory.
All doubts were now dispelled. Thoso who
could make an outfit, or procure assistance
in doing so, wont to work with a will. It
was now early in September, and on the 15th
our party, composed of the following per

and a fine chance for fishing. Wo caught
some beautiful trout at this place, ouo of
