The oath of W. 1 5. Fish, liled with his donation papers, in this oflice, on ihe i: Jth day of March, 18oi>. showsthat lie was, on ihc 2"!h day of March, 1800, personally residing upon andeultivafing his donation claim, and the evidence adduced on both sides shows, that he has never ceased to reside on what was then his own residence, on his own laud. The (h'cd by which he convoyed to Xaoinv Fish, his wife, for the sum <>!' one dollar, his donation claim and improvement ; , for the term of her natural life, was not dated until March •2± I*oo. Without en<|'iii'ing into the validity ol'this deed, it seems evident that he cannot date his residence on the pre emption claim further back than the of March, and is not therefore the prior settler. It is our opinion that he was not according to the evidence, at anv time, entitled to the tract in dispute, as it is shown that lie has been, and is now, residing with his wile, on what was or is his resilience on his donation claim. it Ii as been shown t » our satisfaction that tin' defendant, .Fames M.

Natural History of Washington Territory. A <|ttarlo volume oi' 4«»»> paues, with the ahove title has recently ht en ptih lished hv l»alliere, IJrotners, 440 lli'oad way. New Vtirk, of which (Scorn'e Suckley, M. I>., and .Joseph <!. Cooper, M. I)., are the authors. It is illustrated with snperhly engraved plates, and furnished to suliscrihers at §lO. The author.-* are well known to the people of our Territory, and, although both young men, yet have 111 c»y already earned hriiliant reputations in (lie world of science and letters. Isot!i served with distinction in the Northern Pacific Kail Koad survey, both continued in Washington Territory, adding to their collections and inquiries, long after the termination of the labors of that expe dition. The former connected with the army as assistant surgeon—the latter located himself for a considerable pe riod at (J rav's Harbor and Shoalwater I lay. Dr. Suckley was naturalist and sur geon of (Jov. Stevens' party, from Fort knelling, Minn., across the continent, ami we are assured by members of that survey that his devotion to his labors, his zeal *lll accumulating specimens, his perfect freedom from pedantry, and his never absent pleasantry ami kind man ners to all, endeared him to every mem ber of the party, and instilled a desire in all to please him by adding to those collections. The work embraces the'result of the collections of that expedition in 18.18- 4, embracing the country across the continent between the 47th and 49th parallel, and the private collections made by the authors in lH. r >4-o, t» and 7. In addition, we find many valuable contributions irom the Hon. George (libbs and other friends of science. We learn that Surveyor General Til ton hasseveral copies yet to be disposed of. We advise till who are interested in the development, of our Territory to ptocura this volume. Xo library should he without it. We (rust that the Leg islative Assembly which convenes on Monday next, will properly notice this first attempt to call the attention of the world to the infinite and varied re sources of Washington Territory. In 111 - volume the plant*, trees, birds, iMies and animal:- are embraced and described. The treatise on the salmon, ot which there are 17 varieties in our Water-, is ;t| i;ie worth the .subscription 1 .rn-o. As a tangible <li~plav of their appreciation of ttse labors of tlx.' tal ented you hi:' authors, in nl to afford an opportunity for reference by all our people, wo would suggest that the Leg islature subscribe for u number of copies to IK* deposited in the Territorial libra rv, or to be distributed anions the va rious counties. We are of tlio.se who believe that encouragement should be liberallv bestowed upon those who de vote their time and talent to dcvclope our Territory. liixcoi.N HAM,. —The young I'epub licans of Turn Water in this county, commemorated (lie election ol Lincoln and Hamlin by a grand Mali on Thanks givingnight.

EDITORS' PREFACE The sing'e end of this book is the presentation; in a coniput and <■ >nvenient form, of the more im portant facts, votes, resolves, lot tors, speeches, re ports, and other documents, which elucidate iho political contest now agitating this country. It has been our aim to let every candidate and other important personage speak tor himself, make hi* own platform,"and vindicate (if he may) his own consistency and the soundness of his views on th» great ijtiestions which nnderlio our current poll ties. Of course, such a work can have but a compnnv* tive merit. Make it ever so large, and still man/ things must be omitted that the compiler woula wish to insert: and every critic will plausibly ask, "Why insert this and omit that? Wiry give to much of A and so little of 1»?" lie.iides, it is not always possible to remember, or, if remembered, to find, all that would be valuable in a work likft this. We can only imy that we have done our bests ti.t l.ii.i .!■> t.nltnr » I"| »•■■■, i Inaccuracy of citation is one of the chief vices of our political di.-cussions. Von can hardly Hstm to a set speech, even front a wcll-inform'cd anil truthful canvasser, which is not marred by some misapprehension or unconscious misstatement of the position and views of this or that (ironiinenk statesman. Documents, heedlessly read and long since lost or mislaid, are quoted from the flutae>* and confidence, as though with indubitable accu racy. when the citations so made do gross injustice to their author, and tend to mislead the hearer. We believe the documents collected in this work are so printed that their general accuracy may btf safelv relied on. ll v canvassers of all parties, \vc trust our Text liook will bp found convenient, not to say indis pensable. Bnt those who only listen, nnd read, and retlert, will also find it n manifest help to » clear understanding of the issues and contentions of the day. They will lie interested in comparing the netual positions taken liy Mr. Lincoln, or Mr. Douglas, or (Jen. Cuss, or Mr. Krerett, as faithful- Iv set forth in this work, with those confidently at tributed to that statesman in the fluent harangue of some political opponent, who isiutcntou blazon ing inconsistency or proving his sincerity. To veri ty and correct the citations of a frothy dcrlaimer it sometimes the easiest and most convincing refuta tion of his speech. If a trace of partisan bias is betrayed in the thread of narrative which partially unites the suc cessive reports, bills, votes, etc., presented in thia work, the error is unintentional and regretted. Our purpose was to compile a record acceptable nnd convenient to men of all parties, and v/bieh might be consulted and trusted by all. Whatever is original herein is regarded as of no use or merit, save as a necessary elucidation of tlse residue.— Without apology, therefore, or further explanation, the Text-llook is commcudcd to the favor of the American public.

OPIIIOKB OF THE PRESS. •"This work will he looked upon as a valuable compendium of the history and position of parties, platforms, nml opinions of the leading statesmen of the jfrosent times in the Vnited State*. While compiled doubtless with a view to forwarding the interests of the Republican party during the pres ent campaign for the approaching Presidential election, its value is uot conflued to that party alone but it will tw deemed indispensable to men of all parties, for its leading feature is the impartiality with which the opinions of men and parties of every political shade are set forth, especially on the un happy question of Slavery generally, and Slavery in the Territories in particular. As publicity is the breath of the nostrils to every man who aspires to, and takes part in public life and as few such men would desire to see their opinions without a record, even' though their opinions at onetime might differ from those of another—for change of opinion is ous of the most legitimate of privileges, and one the most frequently practiced in all coun tries—this work can hardly be unwelcome to any of the eminent statesmen of onr country, whose record it sets forth.''—fNew York Traßfcript. " The character and contents of this timely Tol ume arc very well indicated in the title page. For the manner, too, in which the work lms been done, no other assurance of its excellence can be needed after the announcement of Horace tireely as one of its compilers. It is not intended as a partisan text-book. The compilers stute in their advertise ment : " If a trace of partisan bins is betrayed (n th» thread of narrative which partiully nnites the suc cessive reports, bills, votes, etc., presented in this work, the error is unintentional and regretted.— Our purpose was to compile a. record acceptable and convenient to men ut .ill pnrtic -, and whictf might be ••ruultv.l and tin ted by all."
