Ocr Nkxt President. The probability of
the re-nomination ot President Lincoln seems
to increase, according to accounts from Wash-,
irgton. Indeed,, no suitable Union Republic
can statesman, seeing willing- to stand in his
Tui decision of the Supreme Court of Cali
fornia, rejecting tbe soldiers' vote, promises a
plentiful harvest of trouble. In some of tbe
counties the local officers were elected by the
soldiers' vote, and throwing, this vote out lets.,
the copperheads in. Tbe loyal citizens refuse
to submit to the rule of traitors, and threaten
to resist tbeir Induction Into office by force. Tbe-
ense is again before the Supreme Court for a
rehearing, and possibly a more satisfactory
decision may yet be arrived ot.
CnowuKD. Owing to tbe detention of the
p river steamers, animmense number of per
ecus are compelled' to remain at' tho-Dalles,
who would otherwise be on tbelr way to tbe
upper country. All the hotels are crowded to
overflowing,., and in the event f another in
flux of strangers, the hotels will be compelled
to turn applicants away. Every description
of sleeping accommodation has already been
called into requisition, and. yet notwithstand

Demand for Hands. A responsible party
requests us to sny that there is a great demand
for hands at Canyon City, and that good men
can command from $5 to $0 per day for1 the
season. We are assured tfctt a ve:y large
number of men can command employment at
tbtBe figures. Wo commend this fact to the
attention ot the thousands who Are now mov
in g.-to tUe upper country. From Canyon City,
there-re easy access to Boise, Owybce, and in
fact the richest mining districts in the North
ern country, and hence there is no risk in go
ing by way of Canyon City.

from Washington, for tbe raisirrg.of-sis regi
ments of infantry in California, for service
upon the Pacific coast. As it is impossible at
the present time to raise men enough by vol
unteering to even fill up the ranks of tbe regi
ments already raised, it is pretty evident that
a draft will be resorted to lor the purpose of
raiting the required number of meu six or
teventhousand to answer tbe demand. Tbe
new law of drafting abolishes classes, and
takes indiscriminately, every American or nat
uralized citizen between the pges of eighteen
and forty-five. The cause of this requisition
is sot stated,, but it may be the fact that tbe
time of tbe largest portion of the volunteers
expires during the present j ear.: Tbe rumor

adopted;; . , ....... v.. .., ,, , ,.;...,,
WusRgAS, at- the present juncture- of our
national existence, a most unholy and inex
cusable insurrection disturbs tbe peace of our
country, and1, threatens tba disintegration, of
our confederation, and tbe overthrow of our
government ; and whereas, war is at all, times
to be greatly deprecated, and only to be pre
ferred to tyranny on, the one, hand, and anar
chy on the other) Therefore, be it. '
Retolwd, T.bat,. In. order to effect the son
summation of a speedy and lasting peaca, se
curing to ourselves and our posterity tbe in
estimable blessing of a permanent republican
government, it is tbe obligatory duty of every
American citizen to render to his country, in
this hour of her extremity, his entire and un
qualified assistance and-support.
licsoltud, That, while we regard it as-aa in.
alit nable franchise of a free people to criticise
the acts and policy of its rulers; yet the abuse
ot this privilege, in a licentious and disloyal
manner, for the purpose of distracting that
confidence in them which is necessary to, en
able them to steer tbe ship of State intottbe
port of a triumphant peace, as practiced. by.
copperheads throughout the. hind, deserves
the pungent denunciation of all loyal men.
Resolved, That tbe Federal Union, as estab
lished by our torefuthcrs, is paramount in
value to the institution of human slavery,, or
any. other institution based upou the principle
Rttolved, That liberty and tbe Union shonld
be maintained and defended even unto the
sacrifice of life; and that our first and high
est allegiance, under God, is due to tbe Gov
ernment of. tbe United States of America. .'
Rttolved, That we repose full, implicit, and
unshaken confidence in tbe patriotism and no
yravering integrity of tbe President of the
United States, Abraham Linoolh; aad believ
ing him to be tbe most suitable person, under
the direction of Heaven, to lead our country
through the present contest, we would rejoice
in bis re-election.
Jietohed,. Vaat tbe Army and Navy of the
United States, for tbeir self sacrificing ardor
and disinterested patriotism, evinced in tpslr
endeavors to maintain and perpetuate tbe free
institutions bequeathed to us by our forefath
ers, deserve the richest encomiums of a grate
tut nation. A. J. Uobiand, 1

Rapid Changes. la forty years Mexico has
bad thirty-six different forms of Government,
and seventy Presidents. It is not strange that
country which is thus forever changing its
form of government should fall an easy prey
to tbe first bold robber who badlth'e courage
to pluck the fruit. Many of ear own troubles
are directly to be attributed to tbe frequent
change of rulers. The interests of the people
would be much better subserved if tbe Presi
dent was elected for ten years instead of four.
The war is fast bringing this fact borne to tbe
people, tire first manifestation, of which is
seen- in" tbe determination tore-elect Pres
dent Lincoln. Just at this lime there is an ab
solute necessity that President Lincoln be con
tinued in office until tbe war is over, but tbe
precedent will be applied in-other cases, and
Boon the President's office will' cease, to be a
mere foot-ball, thrown up for the amusement
of those wh3 make politics a trade. If pos
sible, tbe Constitution should be so amended
as to elect tbe President for a term of ten
years, but fa. ling in this, tbe people have it
in their-power to continue the Chief Execu
tive In office- twelve years. Let this practice
once be adopted, and the country will be rid
of that wild scramble for office which in a
great measure led-to tbe present unhappy civ 11

Thi Condemned Soldiib General Wright
having refused to-interfere In the case of pri
vate Ely, condemned to-death, for tbe crime of
desertlcWr, there- fs every remn to believe that
in accordance with the terras of hid sentence,
e was yesterday shot. We have afrcrariy stttW
ted that Col. Maury intervened to rave the uru
fortunate man's life, but without avail. Ely,
with tbe single exception of deserting his
post,, bad bVen a faithful soldier, ar d was re
garded as one of tbe best Men in His company.
Previous to entering the service, Ely lived in
Southern Oregon, and is said to have borne an
excellent reputation. - His fault was one fbr
which the regulations prescribe the penalty of
deatfl) but looHlngto tbe impunity with which
the law bad been-violated in numberless in
stances, it seems" bard that he alone out' of
thousands of deserters should be condemned
to die. The practice that has grown up among.-
civilized. nations-hnlf to shoot soldiers who
desert in tbe face of an enemy. This has been
tbe practice with our own Governmennt, and
under, tt the proper punishment for Ely's crime
would have been the- wearing of a ball and
chain for tbe balance of (he term. of. bis en
listment. General Wright, however, has seen"'
fit to pursue a different-course, and it is not
for civilians to question the acts of their mili
tary superiors. .
Detained The steamers Sprap, due at Ce-
lilo on Friday afternoon, and the Tettino, due
yesterday, bad not arrived at 7 o'clock last
evening. Nothing is known with certainty as
to the cause of this detention, but heavy winds
on tbe upper river are supposed to have com
pelled tbe steamers to tie up.
