T., Dec 2, Irtifl. lidiltir of the Star Justice to the peonie of ?>rjg<?n. and to those who reside in d:fTcrent portions of the United States who entertain misconceived views in relation to the war in Southern Oregon, induces me to write to yon, for the purpose of giving you a plain, unvar nuh?d statement of some of the fa-t? connect ed with this war its they exi"t But before 1 proceed, I will say, that it is not strange that there should be prejudices existing averse to our interests throughout the land, when w? h tve those amongst us who wilfully and ma liC'.ously make false representations concerning this war?men with hc&rti grown blaek in in famy, and consciences sj reared by corruption as to be lost to any sense cf humanity or sympa thy for the weak end defer.celcssof our country There are but few of this class, who have s> richly merited the appellation of ?' traitors" to their country and her citizens?who have rendered themselves so totally unworthy the name they bear a* American citizens?yet, although the number is limited, they have wielded an influence with the authorities at Washington city, which, if not counteracted, must piove disastrous to the interests of th:s Territory, as hundreds of our citiiens have contributed their all to assist in prosecutirg this war, since that was the oniy alternative left for us. J t hits t>een stated, and i?generally believed by a great many persons who are per?>nallj unaci uaiiite 1 with the true history of this war that the white* have been the aggressing par i tj, and 44 they considered the United St ite Treasury a legitimate object<f plunder," bin we are able to show that there has brer a state cf war existing on the part of toe Indians sir, ;o tho treaty of 1So3, nnd that the tomahawk of the savage has drank the b!< >d of over fifty of our citzers in Southern Oregon since thai treaty, before we took up anus in defence of our lives and property, in October list; that th*-y had frequently cut off small parties, kill ing them anu mutilating their h ,die3 in the must horrible manner ; and there never bu. beon a period in the history of Oregon when suck transactions were not of almost daily oc currence. In the month of July, 1S55, a band of Rogue Kiver Indiana killed ten or twelve white men in the vicinity of Klamath river, and then re treated to the reserve on Ko~ue river, to which p'mce they were followed by three companies of volunteers raised in the mines for the pur pose cf avenging the wrongs perpetrated upon their fellow miners by the rutoltsj savage When the murderers were demanded of them, tt?ey refused to give them up, in the most peremptory manner, and said they were ready l >t war ; and had it not been for the interces sions of the people cf Kogue river valley, they would have wreaked a summary ven^eanct: upon the foul murderers, which they rnos* richly merited. I went myself, at the solici tation of the citizens and Dr. Ambrose, the Indian Agent at that place, to the command an'S of compauie--. and begged them to desist. I told them taut our grain in the field was ri^efor the harvest; that we were not prepared t>r war, and thai we would enly rescrt to it iu the last extremity. When those officers hoard the frequent importunities of the citi zens to witiidra-v with their forces and not strike a blow which w.-uld inevitably cauga their homes in a few days to present nothing but a sccrsc of desolation, they very gallantly d:d so, leaving the co!d-bio<>ded murderers to go unpunished and unharmed. But it wa< better thus, for it a war had been commcnceJ then, not only all the improvements in this section of country would have been burned, r.ut ail ihe giain in Southern Oregon wouia have Seen swept off by the fl.iiL.es, thereby rendering the peoplo of Rogue river valley de-titute of the means <>f subsistence Thus things passed on until about the first of October, lsJo, wh-n the Indians murdered twu men on the Syekoin mountain; where upon Capt Hay?, with a company of rolun teers, f diowed on the trail of the murderers to a pi'int near their rata A, when they were attacked, the Indians opening the fire A battle ensued and Major Lupton fell Our forces found that the Indians wore fully pre pared for them ; and, also, that they fought desperately. Alter routing the Indians they went into tho ranch, ar.d found various ar ticles, which had been stolon from the whites, i pud al-:o the scalp cf a white which had j beer, taken oil only & few day# bef.re 1 shoold have stated, however, that before coming to the camp of the Indians, they found where they h;.<l bu'.chercd scv .ral head of cattle which they had stolen and driven tff froui the white?. This is tho aCair that was so disgracefully represented as being a cold-blooded butchery if peaceable ar.d inoffensive Indians. After these Indians went to Fort Lane, (which they did. immediately followed by the volunteers.) and called on Capt Smith, of the United States r.rmy, he refused to receive them as friendly Indians, and drovo them away. Ttiis is the nature of the first demonstration on the part of the whites fur redress, nnd we leave it with a caudid people to say whether this was juetiGablo on our part, or whether we had tne right to resist the foe when he was continually waging a war with our citi zens, plundering their houses, and driving off their stock For evidence that this state of things did exist I will refer you to the letter o; Dr. Ambrose, Indian agent, bearing date September 30, 1JS55. About the I Oth of October, the enemy made pn attack upon the citizens living on tne road from the Willamette valley to Iiogue river, and for several miles burned all the houses, barns, grain, Ac . and killed all the inhabit ants without respect to ago or sex,except M: ??. Harris and daughter Ttiepeoplcof southern Oregon then petitioned Governor Curry to ca'l out volunteer troops to -ubdue the enemy. Accordingly, on the 15th of October the Gov ernor issued his proclamation calling for nine companies of volunteers to aid in a war then existing against the Kogue Kiver and other Indians. Ihe people ot southern Oregon re sponded to the pall nobly, and in a lew days the required number of companies v. ere in the field, and on the 31st of October a portion of them, and Capt Smith's company of L nitcd States troops, met the foe in the Grave Creek Hills, and fought the battle known here as the ?' Battle of Hungry Hill " In this battle the Indians fought most desperately, killing and wounding over forty of our men; and, from the nature of their position it was im possible for our forces to dislodge them or gain any material advantages over them. Alter two days' hard fighting both parties left the field. The loss was about equal on both sides. We lost thirteen in kiil.d. and thirty wounded This is the battle that was published in nu merous papers in different portions of the United States as being nothing but a farce, gotten up by us for the purpose of creating a sympathetic feeling in our behalf thit we might be sure of being paid f.>r our ssrviees, and that no such battle was ever fought. How shameful that there are men in this Ter ritory, holding high and responsible stations, who aro so lost to a sense of truth and vera city, ar.d so ungenerous, as to represent matters in a light which h!U' lod mon to such erroneous conclutions. After this, tho war was prosecuted with as muoh effect as it jras possible to do under the circumstaccos, as one of the most rig >rous *,B" ters closed in upon us, and in order to follow the enemy to his strorgbolde, we were obliged to march over the most rugged mountains, through almost44 eternal snows,' which ren dered it impracticable to prosecute the war to as speedy a close as might have l;een done under other circumstance#. Daring the winter the volunteers tnet the ?? iwcbit per cent. enemy frequently and drove him from his no siti*<n. bat it was impossible for them to (ol* 11* up his retreat in such a manner a* to render their services a? effective m they might have dene bad it not been for the inclemency of the season and scarcity rf ammunition ?rhieh ba? attended us through the war Id the month *f Jauuary last. Mr Drew, Quar termaster General for tbe Territory, sent an agent to San Francisco to purchase ammuni tion. After he had reached that place and made the purchases, the merchants from whom they wete made refused to let the articles gu from representations made to them by General Wool, that if there was any war whatever ex sting in Oregon it was an unjust one. That it was a war waged by the whites against the iunocent and defenceless Indians, and that ^uch debts would never be paid Under the influence of these, and like representations, the agent totally failed to accomplish the ob jects of hi* re jvion, and returned home. The troops remaining in the field almost destitute of ammunition, and as a necessary conse quence almost powerless, only being able a portion of the time to keep the foe out of tbe frontier settlements Here I will remark that tn< *t of the ammunition used during the war in Southern Oregon, wss purchased with mo ney adv tnced by individuals for that purpose. On the 24'h of March there were three for r^rtics of Indians discovered by the volunteers, and driven back with considerable loss t?. the l-Uter Ooe of the parties wu dis covered on Cow Creek, and defeated by Major .Wuhan's oommand ; another on the bead ??raters of the Co'juille river by Captain Buoy's company, and toe third party on the same <lav. by Major brace's command, in Illinois valley ? Xheso parties were sent out for the purpose < f robbing and burniDg the houses of the set tler?, killing them and driving off their stock, a practice which bss been common ever sinoe thorr were settlers in that portion of the coun ty The Indians then fell back to tbe meadows on Rogue river, one of their stongest positions, and prepared to make a strong stand, having collected their entire forces at that point We immediately made arrangements to march against them, and on the 2Uh of April we reachcd a point near to where their oombined forces were encamped, but they were on the opposite ?i the river, and we found that they had selected a very strong position for defence, but by discreet management of the officers in command, and moving in the night, we suo cceded in gaining a point from where we op<*red a deadly fire upon them early on the morning of the 27ih of April, ajid after two days hard fighting, we tuccceded in routirg ?bcm, and taking from them the position which had served as their headquarters dur ing the war. On the 2d day of May, a military post was established at the Meadows, and a portion of the command went out for supplies. The re maining portion stopped to guard the post until tueir return, a? it was on the main tho roughfare o: the Indians from the Lower Rogue river out to the settlements in the val ley. On the 2rtth of May, (having suoceeiei in procuring supplies, which was very difficult and teliou",) we marched down the river toward? the Big Bend, the Indians having fled in that direction. Early on the morning of 'he 2o:h. we made an attack upon a large party of the enemy and gained a signal vic tory over them, killing and ttkin* prisoners a great u. ny of them. On the 2t)th. we met old John s band, and were attacked by them. A fight ensued, in which we were completely victorious ; we killed several of his men in this engagement When we met him he had just dr&wn off his forces from the Big Bend of Kogue river. (which was only e'gbt miles be low,) where he had surrounded Capt Smith, of the United States army, and killed and wounded thirty-one of his sen the day before. Oar oommand then proceeded to the Big Bend, where we f.-und Lt Col. Buchanan with a command of United States troops. L|k>d oar arrival here we tound that two or three of the most prominent bands of hostile Indian? had made a precipitous retreat iwhen wc made the attack on tbem on the 2ttth of May,) to the camp of Col Buchanan and call* ed upon Gen. Palmer, who was there, for terms of peacc. and that they had given up their arms and f-urrendered unconditionally. We theo proceeded down the river to the coast, and during the march wc took a number of prisoners on the river and drove the remainder into the c imp cf ihe regulars to au unconditional sur render. We ranged along theooast for several dajs below the mouth of Kogue river, and succeeded in defeating tbe Indians in several engagements and bringing them all to our terms By the 25th day of June, 1^5G, all ot tbe hostile Indians in Southern Oregon, except Old John and 35 of his band, bad surrendered. Uen. Palmer. superintendent of Indian af f jirs, turned them over to the regular troops, and they were taken in their charge to the reservo The volunteers left the field at this time, our service having expired, but before we left the field, John bad agreed that he would come in on the same terms that the other Indians had. After our forces had with drawn however, old John concluded he would no'.come in under that agreement, and Col. Buchanan then agreed with him that If he would come in and deliver up his arms, that he nor none < f hi? men should be put upon trial for any outrages or murders committed by them, and that tbey should retain all the stock and plunder they had taken from the whites previous to this time Mr. Nathfcn ney, one of the Indian agents, and a man of unquestioned truth and veracity, is my au thority for this statement However much the course of our executive officer, or the vol unteers, in*y be censored, we can say that there never ha* been during this war, an acrfmont made by tbem with the enemy to disgraceful to the American people as this This agreement was made by Col Buchan an with John, when he was well aware of the tact that this band was composed of despera does from other tribes to a great extent, and they were deeper dyed in crime than any band which had participated in this war / As to tbe charges that were made by Gen. Wool and Gen. Palmer, that this war was a speculative scheme gotten up by the people of Oregon, thinking "the treasury of tne United states was a legitimate object of plun der,': 43 , I will only say that it bears no semblance of truth or reason on the face of it. It is not reasonable to suppose that men wbo were making from $4 to ?16 per day at l^eir accustomed labors, would bave creatad a dis turbance with the Indians for the PurP?** ot going into the ranks and enduring more an the ordinary hardships and pri dent '-to a life on the tented field, ing their own horses, equipments and arm# for >4 per day in the perspective ^ The territorial troops haveCOD^n.c^ ? selves gallantly during ligation ;[ credit is due for so su.oessfulaterminaUonit u a** to th. i"nJd'-tbcVh??. endur.1 trtr, h.rd.bif i V-rpi" every ineonvemense attendant "d.
