IThe Indiana repeatedly expressed “IND"
iselves perfectly satisfied with the business‘

.thnt the Volunteer: and their odious
“plundered the friendly Cuyuses” is a me~
lignent fabrication. I, hesitate to believe
that Gen. Wool has so grossly deb-sod
himself as to originate this shumeless defe
mation. In his distempered spleen he has
entered to be pahued upon his eager wil
lingness to believe All things detrimental to
the citizens of Oregon, these shameless li
bels which had their origiu in the vicious
brain of one or tvo persons whose reputa

inquiry alo the character of his inform-I

ment of so grave a charge. It would have|
been fur better for his own reputation for
prudence and a willingness to accord to
the Volunteers their just deserts, had he
resorted to this precautionsry measure. It
would have saved him from the painful ex
poenre of A portion of his vindictive senti
ments towurds our citizens, which he has
frequently and weakly sulfercd to become
manifest.
l Another statement made by Gen. Wool
i! beg to notice. He says : “In Februa
‘ry, thirteen wugons loaded with supplier,
lineluding ammunition, for the volunteen,
guarded by on? four men, were captured
lby the Indians u-tween the Ulnutillu and‘
jFort Wnlln-wnllnt" This' charge in us‘
ibuscly false In the one to which I havel
libero replied. Until I rend this in the‘
‘Nulimml Iruelligentzr. the report had not
reached my ears, and I wna not aware thut
lthiu unmitigated Imtrutll was employed by
‘Gen. Wool to the dispnmgcment of the
Volunteers and discredit of our whole peo
ple. From tht commencement of the In
110 the month of Mnrch Int. not u single
‘wngon belonging truthc volunteer service
{had been between “ the L'mutillu and Fort

At no time were tin-re us many as " thir

(A: war the Indian Lure no! mauled in mp
!ur'l'ag a nigh article Wfilrlmmr or

In this rel-poet the Volunteer service pro
semu a much cloarer record than do“ that
of Gen. Wool. Tho Indiana Mu captured

the regulars, while from the Volunteer: they
have not such aucceaa toboast. In this
conn‘cction I may allude to the fact that
in April last, in the Yakima country. my

them when they attockod and captured the

Tillman County Convention.
The following resolutions were prepared
to submit to the convention, held Saturday,
June 28th, but were not introduced in con
sequence of the immediate adjournment of
the convention, after completing their prop
er lubora. We publish them at matter of
infonnution, for the democracy elsewhere;
and have no doubt, that they, if submitted
to the meeting, would have been ndoptcd
unanimously. They read as follows: ‘
Raolred, that the democratic party is the
only political organization that has a histo~
ry or a future, a national or a steady policy,
and is therefore the only party in the hands
of which, the aluirs of our government may
be committed with safety.
Resolved, that the principles of self~gor-'
‘erumcnt contained in the KalisneNelireske‘
bill. by which the source of tho laws for thcl
territories il taken from the hands of uowl
residents, and left with the people for whom
the lawn Ire made, is the genuine doctrine
of rcpnbliceniem, and he therefore who un
der cover of the home of We nukes
Iver upon thie doctrine “ hu stolen the liv
ery of heaven in which to serve the devil."
Rtloll‘d, thet the so called know-nothing
order, hcin composed chiefly of out-caste
and renegngee from other politicnl primes,
without political principle: or dignity of
character, is therefore the mat dangerous
and corrupt of ell the in" of the dny, there
fore the nominees of thin convention by oc
ccpting euch nominationl are thereby pledg
ed if elected, to use ell honorable menus to‘
defeat the objects and code of aid order.
and to rid the country of the curec of its'
existence. ‘
Itunlwi, that. of the political nieniiureil
and bold Ind able Interim” of president
Pierce, by which the fun nmentnl principles
‘of the democratic faith have been illustrat
-led, we give our cordial nppronl.
Ruched, the: we seek no dlimee, end
accept no compromises, but rely with the‘
utmost confidence upon the intelligence and‘
pntriotism of the masses for the final and
triumphant success of the lalimml dcmocra-‘

' At a mass meeting convened pursuant to
pu‘olic «notice, in the town of'Olympia, to
take into considevntion the course pursued
by the executive of the territory, and the
emergency which caused him to decllre‘
imnrtill law in Pierce county; B. I“. Ynntiu;
!Inl culled to the choir, and J. W. Goodellj
appointed secretary. i
After tome remarks relative to the obw
,jeet of the meeting, the following commit
ltee was appointed to draft resolution: ex
pressive of the sense of the meeting, viz:
1 Hon. Victor Monroe, Wm. Rutledgel
,l-Isq, Clue. E. Weed, u. D. Morgan lud<
'Andrél-J Clutnbcu.
f The committee retired Ind shortly re
|ported the following prcumble and resold;
;tions: 1
; Whrau, in the prosecution of the exist-l
‘ing Indian wnr in Washington territory,
t'ertnin settlers in the county of l’ieree nrof
strongly suspected of nflording nid nude
lcomi’ort to the enemy, and certainly did re-i
ltnlin in safety upon their furms whilst nll
lother settlers in the vicinity were, either in
block-houses, or if found by the enemy were
‘mnssuered: .
: And whereas, the above suspected per-i
isons did in our opinion furnish provisions
{and '.formntion to the enemy, inciting thet
continuance of the war. and when ordered
into the towns ol’ Steilacoom or Olympia or
'to Ft. .\‘isquully, did indelinuce of orders
from the executive, and the general sensel
lol' the citizens, return to their claims to re-J
lestuhlish intercourse with the enemy; and
also when the said settlers were arrestedi
land placed for safe keeping in the hundl
xof the commanding editor of the U. S. gar-l
‘rison at Ft. Steilucooin, preparatory to a
trial by a military commission, a writ of
!luilzau corpus was applied for to relieve
,them from said confinement, which would
than had the t-ll'ect to turn into the thea
tre of actiw military operations a hand of
‘lactire ladinn sympathize” and probable}
‘spies, not only rendering abortive the mili
‘tury operations, but leading‘to civil wurl
and bloodshed: and, l
Whereas in view of these facts, the exec-i
utive on the 34! day of April, 1856, pro-i
le|aimed sutrlial law in the county of Pierce
land afterwards enforced it by the arrest oii
the judge and clerk, in their attempt to}
hold the usual term of the court. There
fore, be it '
Ituolead, that martial law having been
proclaimed it became the duty of the gov
lol‘not to enforce il.
Ruolml, that we approve of the course
lo! the executive in enforcing martial law.
Ranked, that the question is simply as
[expressed b the governor in his " Vindica
tion" datecl May 10th, 1856, “ whether
the executive has the power in carrying on
the war, to take a summary mm with a
dangerous band of can-sari", who have
been the confederate! of the Indians
throughout, by their exertions and sympa
thy, can make, to a great extent, the mili
tsry operations abortive," it is a question
whether military power, or public commit
tees without has, as in California, shalLaee
that justice is done in the cause.
Raolrcd, that we will sustain the execu
tive in enforcing marllal law, at least until
the trial of the suspected spies and Indian
sympathlaers.
Alter considerable discussion the pream-i
ble and resolutions were passed.

I desire, through the medium of your
R 999" to say to the people of Washington
‘ erritory, that the citizens of Sawamish
county are not willing for the Territory,‘
iwhich been the name of the illuutrious‘
Woihingwn, and tho Authorities which
have so manfnlly hold her reins, to be de-‘
rided and stigmetiud.
I They are not Indian sympathize“, nei-I
lther do they sympathies or defend those?
who aid and give shelter to onr4'enemiee,‘
lwhile their hand! are Iteined with the‘
Iblood or our best citiunl. ‘
1 They do not cry out again-t the authori
‘ties and condemn them for trying to defend
‘thoir homes and amides from the torch
and scalping knife of the savage.
They do not crook about war for politi
cal fame, or pecuniary lutercut.
They do not desert their country in time
of need, but frown ludignantly on toryism,
and say they are too proud to divide and
wrungle among themselves when their
country is involved in on Indian.
They are ready and willing to enlist in
the present war—to help [i ht the bottles
‘of our common country. fem proud to
‘say that the citizens of Snwumish do not
‘turn from the path of duty when our coun
_try call. They have done all that was pos
sible for a people to do. There are only
five men in the county who are not at their
country's service.
We unanimously condemn the course
pursued by the learned bar at Stoilacoom ;
also the resolutions passed, same day, It
the same place, by the lame people, pur
porting to be by the citizens of Pierce
county. Now readers, you are all probably
acquainted with these circumstances, and
Iwhat could have been the design of those
men? I can freely answer the question.‘
It was not for the good ol our country,‘
but to gratify their own selfish desires, and
to effect unjust ends.
When 1 think of the picture of the pres
ent war, I am lost in wonder of astonish-
linent. I have always thought, heretofore,
, that the American people were united
. when their country was involved in war
‘ with any other nation. But here! see I
)diflerent state of «hire, which deserves
the most rigid condemnation. Well, these
,lthings, ere long, will be known throughout
[the area that our history extends, sud
;these noted cheraeters will lulend the "A"
lof future history with disgraceful ms s.l
‘Rather then lay back in my safe, or easy
chair, (as some men have done), and place
myself in opposition to those who have
been defending me, and lighting the bat
!tles of my country. I would choose to be a
“dog and be] the moon.”
Then look It Gen. Wool's oondnet to
wards Oregon Ind Washington Territories.
{lt has always heretofore struck me, that
[the army of the United Stetee was organ
ized and supported for the express pur
[pose of defending our common country
legainst our enemies. But on the Pacific
{coast it appears different—the commnnding:
officer deriding our misfortunes, and the}
unhappy people of two Territories, charges
them wit being Outlews end murderen.
just merely to clear his unfortunate blnn
ders. Now, all those who are working:
against our uufortunltc people, ure tryingl
to slop say Iprropristions being made by
Congress to de rey the expenses of the werq’
and indemnify citizens for their 111, which
has been stolen or burned by the Indians ;
\and should this he efleeted, then, I say, for
Jone, we csn light the bottles of our coun
try, even though we be neglected. We
[must maintain our just rights. I had rnth
ler live on dried clams and salmon, and de
fend my country, than desert her in time
loi' need, as Gen. Wool has done.
