Tho Standard of last Thursday publishes
the petition which has been in circulation
for the removal of all oflicers from the army
who voted against Jo Lnnej Wo copy it,
that our readers may see it, and baablo to
preserve this gem : '

The Standard deserves credit for the man
lier in which it condemn the course of these
. ..t.i i . i a . .
I c iuoiicrs, aiinougu ii sneans ot ll in a very
softly sort of a way. However, the Stand
ard shall have considerable credit fur the
following exposition of hi portion :
"We hesiliile not to dislinclly ileeluro that we
have no sympathy forand purluko not in the spiril
iiiiti wuuiu oegei sucu a pol.lioil.
We presumo that if the Rogno river In
dians could vote, and claimed to belong to
his party, instead of pitching into them tho
way he does, ho would probably condemn
their wholesale slaughters iu language some
thing like the following :
" Wc hciituto not to distinctly declare that wo
Inive no sympathy for, and partake not in Ihe
fnrn. ii.ui pnni.Ms bucii mi'iiilcniaiily con luct on
tlio part of those from whom wo hud reimeu to ex
p ct better things."
Now we consider it tho duty of every
public journal to hold up such characters,
as signed that petition, in their truo colors.
Holy Writ itself used uo milder terms, in

Mr. Johnson informed us several days
agOj that ho would soon have tlio wires iu
operation between this city and Portland.
We heard nothing further from him 'until
tho Inst Standard brought us the intelli.
genco that about ten mile of tho distance
are already completed, comprising but little
more than half tho distance, from this to
Portland by the litje. Tho rain which now
pours down, ns if another flood had been de
cided upon, will probably retard tho worki
if it does not drivo Friend Johnson into
winter quarters. r . ;
Mr. George Walling has laid upon our
table a large sweet potato, tho product nf

weighed two pounds, and serves as an nns-

from the Islands, and sprouted it under glass.
From the sprouts of this potato ho raised
eleven hills which produced about, half a
bushel of (ine roots. Mr. W. says that if
Friend Simmons beats him in fruit, be

1 do not know Itml I ought to Rlt.ibiito it
bad lU'J'.ive to a good deed. Pl.t I recollect
that these mo llie siuno Indian who, at a
"revival" among them under the labors of
Lee, were in n big way of praying nnd
shouting in lliu ulia', when Mr. Lee went
around ai:i ng tln iij i.s they lay ou thsr
sri'oiind, tiicoiinigiiKi litem to "pray on."
The Indians slopped, Itohul up lit Mr.
Lee, and leked him how many blankets her
would give theiii if i!u-y iirai ou for a iriv-
eii lime! Tin; ludiaiis, like ninny of our

American horses, mid other slock, and re
treated with his posse, numbering from 180 '
to "J!);) wnrrio's, somewhere on tho head wa
teis of John Dav's Uivur. This intelligence
is in the main derived from fiiendly Indians.
It is probable that a strong company wilt
soi.n be despiitch'd in search nf him. 'Tho

Walker, and Whitm.-m in that direction
have stumped Ihe chaiaeter of nimiy of these
Iudiaus with uu impress that tln-y can never
wear oil' by the attrition consequent on mix
ing wilh their nioio savage brethren. I
really hope that we shall imver be called tO'
take up ai 1115, agai list the Nez lViucs. The' -fall
of that tribe would be a soureo of regret
to those who have been acquainted with,
their history, and take an interest in their
