A PLEA FOR A XEW PROFESSOR SHIP TX FEMALE COLLEGES. not a i-xirmnxc matthi: i:y any MEANS. A Irrj Sad Var. We are sorry to see so many of the humorous papers find any fun in the incident of the girl at Keo kuk who was hugged to death by her lover. lie had proposed to tier, in her fathers parlor, and she had accepted him, and in a mo ment of ecstacy he hugged her to his breast, and she died at once. The young man was horror-strick en, and called her parents, it is supposed that she died of heart disease. The case was very sad indeed, and papers should not make fun of occurrences that bring so much sadness. However, while this case is fresh in the minds of old and young, vi will embrace the opportunity, and em brace it gently, for fear we will kill it, to again impress upon young people what we have o of ten advised, and that is to be un usually careful about i lftm Tli) II u Girl. Many a young man hugs a girl al most to death,, and he never knows how near he comes to being a mur derer. Girls nowaday.- are not what they used to be when yon and I were young, Maggie. They cannot stand as much grief now as girls did twenty years ago. Some how, they don't seem to be put up for hugging. Tf a man puts his arm around a seventeen 3'ear old girl of tlu- present day, and sort of closes in on the belt, he expects to hear something break. Many hu mane men let go before they have jot a srirl half hugged, .because the girl looks so frail that he is alraid he will break her in two. Of course there are exceptions to the frail girls, but the majority are too much like a bundle of asparagus. Some of the girls of the present day are robust, and seem to be of fered if a person lets up on the hugging on their account, and it is said they flux ISnrk illi 11 lor Which reminds a man of the days j of long ago, but they are few and far between. Tco much care can not be exercised in putting arms around the young girls of to-day, and we would wish to impress this fact upon the minds of the young men who are just coming upon the stage of action. Of course, men along in years do not need advice. The boys are apt to put more force into the right arm than they are aware of, in such cases, a hundred per cent, more than they would be apt to do in sawing wood, or carrying up a scuttle of coal. They should bear in mind that girls are too valuable to be used for developing the muscles, as you would a gymnasium. You don't have to squeeze a girl till her liver is forced from its normal position, and she chokes up and catches her breath, to show her that 3'ou love her. A Gentle Squeeze Of the hand, the stealing of the arm around her waist when she is not looking, and the least pres sure upon her belt, is all that the law requires. She can tell by your face whether you love her, as 3011 sit there in the twilight looking into the guiding star eyes, as "well as though you grabbed her as you would a sack of wheat and hung on like a dog to a root. Don 't make a barrel hoop of your self, and try to break every stave in the girl you think you love, and you win not nave cause ior me rrowhe poor young man in Iowa has, who meant no harm, but lacked a governor to equalize his power. Hug easy till you find that the patient will stand more, and then you can Apply tlie Proper Sciuoziirr. Sometimes we think there ought to be a professorship in our female schools for testing the capacity of scholars for the trying ordeals which they must pass through. If there was such a professorship, and girls were given a ticket or certificate showing just how much hugging would be good for them, it might save tunny valuable lives, but wo don't know of many who could 1k11 such a professorship with credit. Then if the girls were given certificates, tliev might alter the figures, and get more hugging than was good for their health. The best way is for young men to use good judgment, and then all will be well. As we said before, it pains us to ?c the piipers make frivolouf. items alwut such a sad case. Did Dr. Whitman SaTe Orejjon? J 11 my second article in anawvr to Mrs. Victors labored article to prove that Dc Whilinan did not, and that lie had 110 instrumentality in raising the emigration company of 18 ID; that the company was a month on its way before he left Ids old home, I quoted the statements of three candid witnesses, while L have many more equally ready to aflirtn to his noble and unselfish efforts to pilot, aid and assist them 'on the whole route. Before we direct our attention to Hon. Jesse Applegatea statements as furnished by M rs. Victor, it is proper to refer to what she says about l)r. W.'s going to Washington. She says: Tltcre to no proof anywhere that lie went to Washington, though it is proba ble enough, a-, all Americans having been in Ore 41m were welcomed by the government as a means of iijfoiniHtion. Can airy one inform us why such a statement, implying a denial of a ios- itive fact ir made ? And 111 the same short sentence adding, though it is probable enough, as all Americans having been in Oregon were welcomed by the government a a means of in formation." Jf this does not show adesuaralc ef fort to pervert the truth, pray tell us what doas. We will place with this statement one from Hon. A. L. Lore joy, who was Dr. Whitmans traveling companion, and is still living. He says in his letter to me, and the same to'llcv. (i. H. Atkinson, D.D., after giving his account of their journey to Dents fort . . The doctor leniained over night at the foit. and staited early the lollowing morning 10 join the M. Louis party. I lere e parted. The doctor proceeded to Washington. 1 remained at Dents fort until .spiiug. and joined Hie doctor the following. I u!., near fort Laramie, on his way to Oregon, in companj with a tram or emigrants, lie orteii express ed himself to me alwmt the remainder of his iournev and Hie luaunei in which le was received at "W shiugtou. and by Jhe Doaid of Foreien Missions at Dostou. lie had several interviews with Presi dent Taj lor, Sceretar Webster, and a good many mcmlKTs of congress. Con giess being in Mission at that time. He urged the immediate rcrimiiatiou of the treaty with Great Dritain relative to this country, and begged them to evtend the laws of the United Mates over Oregon, and asked for liberal inducements to emigrants to come to this coast. He was ver cordially and uimlrv received by thepresident and members of congress, and without doubt the doctors interviews resulted greatly to the benefit of Ore gon and to this coast. Dathis reccittion at the Board of Foreign missions was not so coKlial. 1 he hoard was inclined to censure him for leaving his post. The doctor came to the frontier settle ments urging the citizens to emigrate to the Pacific, lie left Independence, Missouri, in the month of May, 1M::, with an emigrant train of one thousand souls, for Oregon. With his cnergv and know ledge ol the country 1m rendered them great assistance in fording the many dangerous and rapid streams they had "to cross, and in hnding a wagon road through manj of the narrow rug ged passes in the mountains. He arriv ed at Waiilatpu about one year from the time he left to find hi.s home sadly dilapidated and his flouring mill burned to the ground. The Indians were very hostile to the doctor for leaving them, and without doubt, during his absence, the seeds of that assassination was sown, (by those haughty Cajuse.s) which re sulted in his death, Mrs. Whitman, and main others, although it did not take place until some four years after. 1 re main, vours with gieat respect, A. L.vu iti.Nci: Lovimoy. If Mrs. Victor who claims to be. so glad Mr. Clarke hail furnished me an occasion for pointing out the truth Jo Those who think, as 1 do. that a love of truth is above a devoton to an idea, whether it is icligious or political."' If she had looked on page :t!iJ of Gray's History she would have saved herself j the unpleasant position of an ignorant attempt to laisiry a historic- laet, tnat nas been, ami can yet De pioveii by living witnesses. In the net two lines she sav.s: 'But we are told in the Missionary Herald, September, 1843, the follow ing:" We will not repeat the Mission ary Heralds statement as quoted by Mrs. Victor, because we have quoted the statements of Hon. John Hobson and of Hon. P. H. Burnett to provo Mrs. Victor and the Missionary Her ald both m error; and we arc inclined to the opinion that Mrs. Victor placed before her renders the first contra dictory and blind excuse for a false hood in the concluding Missionary quotation, a part of which she puts in capitals; and now she has made and quoted a false statemont to repeat the one previously made against the truth of W. H. Grays History. She Bays: Now it wilt be observed that in this declaration of the motive of Doctor Whitman's visit, it is asserted that an emigration had already begun; that Doctor Whitman was not certain of tak ing back with him any "christian fami lies," and that he did not set out on his return until June. These assertions, of course, it must be allowed, upset Mr. (.ray m statement concerning tne instru lneiitalih of Doctor Whitman in raising the emigrating company of 183. That emigration was a month on its way, with wagons and stock, before he left his old home to return to Waiilatpu. The above quotation from Mrs. Victor allows us to show how careless she is in quoting and attributing to one person what is credited" and quot ed from another. W. H. Gray says, on the 289th page of his History or Oregon, "1 find an article in the Pa cific of November Dth, from Mr. Spalding, which gives us the result: On reaching the settlements, Dr. Whitman found that many of the now old Oregonians, naming Waldo, jApplegate, Houston, Kreiger, and others, who had made calculations to oome to Oregon, had abandoned the idea because of representations from Washington that every attempt 1 take wagons ami ox teams through the ltockv and Blue mountains to the Columbia had failed. Dr. Whitman saw at onca what the stopping of wagons at fort Hall ever' year meant. The representations purported to come from Secretary Webster, but wore from Governor" Simpson, who magni fied the statements of his chief trader Grant, at fort Hall, declared the Americans must be going mad, from their repeated fruitless attempts to take wagons and teams through the impassable regions to the Columbia. Mrs. Victor says: Hon. Jesse Applegate, whom Mr. Gray mentions ns one of those who had auaii- doned the idea of coming to Oregon be cause of the representations from v asli ington that every attempt to take wagons and ox-teams through the Hocky and Dlue mountains, to the Columbia had failed," but who was told by Dr. Whit man 'that his only object in crossing the mountains in the dead of winter, at the risk of his life, ami through un told sufferings, was to take back an American emigration that summer through the mountains to the Columbia, with their wapons and teams." denies the truth of these assertions, and sodo others of the persons named by Mr. Gray. Suppose we place John Hobsons name in place of Jesse Applegate, or any other name, will it change the fact of the misrepresentations on the part of the servants of the Hudson Day compnivy? In answer to Honorable .Jesse Ap History with marginal notes. ! Let U3 examine tint quibble: " Firat, Mrs. Victor says, "Mr. Applegate at tempted to show the true relations of Dr. Whitman to the emigration of 184:. without openly, assailing Mr. Gra.vs statements, but he was too care ful in his method," ns alove. To rebut the whole matter, before we quote Mr. Applegate himself, we will introduce the testimony of a young man that was with the Doctor through the whole trip, and has given us his distinct statement in a letter already published as follows, in Thk Weekly Astokian, December 17, 1880: Mr. W. H. Graj, while in Lewiston last August, met Mr. P. D. Whitman who was requested to forward his recol lections of meeting and comiug to Ore gon with his uncle. Dr. Marcus Whit man. He requested him particularly to be careful and make no statement which he was not nosltivc he could give his oath to. if requested to do o. Following is his replv. Mr. Gray says there are I other living witnes-ses. whose testimony 1 will be written and given under oath in I due time: ' Set I'ercM Aney. f iapiju oisuoa. iuuu. t ucioier hid. i?v.j To The Pl'iii.ic": About the the'JOth of April. 1S43 I left Rushville.

Xoticc to FlHlirrineii. to he encounter way were so uutgnitied as to make us suppose the journey to Oregon al most impossible. For instance, the two crossings of Snake river, and the crossing of the Columbia and other small streams, were represented as being attended with great danger; also that no company heretofore attempt ed the passage of theso streams but with the loss of men from the vio lence and rapidity of the currents, as also that they had nercr succeeded in getting more than fifteen or twenty head of cattle into the YVillamet val ley. "In addition to the above it was as serted that threelor four tribes of In dians in the middle regions had com bined for the purpose of preventing our passage through their country, fu case we escaped destruction at the hands of the savages, that a more fearful enemy, famine, would attend our march, as the distance was so great that winter would overtako us before making the Cascade mountains. On the other hand, as an inducement to pursue the California route, we were informed of the shortness of the route when compared with that to Oregon." I have quoted the statements of these two witnesses to show the ig norance of Sirs. Victor relative to the subject upon which she quotes Hon. Jesse Applegate, for I do not believe that intelligent and generous man has written what Mrs. Victor claims he has, and quotes as comiug from him; and until she can provo that Hobson, Burnett, Baker and Gen. Palmer have falsely represented Dr. Whitman, and the maliciously false representations of the servants of the Hudson Bay company arc true, I will not believo ihe has truly represented his state ments. If she has, we must conclude that his memory of that journey is gone, and wo must forgive him, while we can honor him for a noble and truthful statement made of Dr. Whitman in his most interesting de scription of " A Day with the Cow Column of 1843;" and as Mrs. Victor referred to that articlo and attempted an excuse for Mr. Applegate in writ ing it, by saying: Mr. Applegate, in his article A Day with the Cow Column."' attempted to show the true relation of Dr. Whitman to the emigration of 1843, without ononis assailing jur. urays statements, uut ae was too careful in his method.
