SATURDAY, JANUAUY 0, 1858.
JJP I). W. Chaio is authorized lo do any bug.
lot connected wilh Tin Argus Office during my
fW The Standard of this week lino not
corn lo hand up to our going to press.
Its ilow movements nre doubtless owing
its " inte retting condition," a it it nruh.

tttj" under its now editor. Wo notice
the Oregonian putT dim as ono pushed
of " common senso, common decency, nnd
gentlemanly bearing" wliilo iho Times
embraces bim as "an able, efficient, nnd
faithful co-litlwrer in tbe democratic cause."
The Advocate, whoso nose is still bleeding
from the scrutches received in attempting
to bug bruin Hibbeu, wisely says nothing.
We will just here givo it (s our private
opinion, that Iho " Softs" will be hence
forth without an organ. Quite a number
of them, who Lave become very properly
disgusted with every snaky, slippery, self
ish thing that wears the brand of "democ
racy" among us, have subscribed for The
Argus, believing that it is a reliable pnper,
to far as advocating the interests of iho
masses is concerned, as well as being en
advecalo of the lunuamental principles
that lie at the foundation of a free govern
ment; a friend of useful public enterprises,
defender of the Union and the Constitu
tion, besides being an unflinching advocate
f such moral principles as even n black
democrat, who has much of n soul would
like to see his family grow up under the
influence of, although ho disregards them
- himself, aud patronizes iho foul prints in
this Territory ihnt scolT at them, nnd do
light in nothing so much ns giving morn li
ly and religion a stab under the fifth rib,
with an instrument stumped "democracy"
on both sides of tlio blade and on the handle,
thinking tltnl even a circuit rider who pro
fesses "democracy," would listen with do-
light lo Iho prenne of expiring religion ;
and rubbing his hands shout amen! when
' he saw the " democratic" knife plunged to
i iis pnlpitating heart.
. We have room Or a few moro such sub
scribers as are renlly democrats, nnd wo
pledge them eur word that wo shall never
be found advocating anything incompnti.
ble with real democracy, while we scorn
the bastard kind, nnd hold it ns unworthy
' the name, us Mormons nro ef "Saints."
Since the above was In type, a promi
nent "Soft" tells us that he has seen ihe
. last Standard, and it is as " sound ns a bell."
Allen, tho pro-slavery representative
from Yamhill, is constantly denouncing the
" Salem Platform" on account of its deny,
ing the right of tho peoplo to iustruct their
representatives. Tho duty of a Legislator
to conform his acts to tho wishes of bin
constituents, was the great burthen of his
song when he canvassed his county lust
June. Since tho election on the constitu
tion, in which tho people of tho Territory,
-at well as his own county, decided, by an
overwhelming majority, that they wanted
no slavery hero, this Allen has been very
busy in the Legislature, in trying to Mis
represent his constituents, by moving (or
legislation lo protect slave property iu Ore
gen. What a pity that there is no dependence
to bo placed in any locofoco.
QZr The prospect is, that nil the tribes
of Indians west of the Rocky Mountains
have been tampered with, nnd nro already
pledged to support the Mormons in the
coming war. The Indian news from every
quarter seems tojiistify this opinion, low
the General Government will terminate
Ihe Mormon war, wilh tho lensl expense
of Wood and treasure, seems just now to be
the general topie of conversation. Some
think that the Government ought lo dis-t-and
the regular fortes, nnd call for vol.
unteers. We would suggest thut tho
whole matter be turned over lo iho Oregon
Administration. Let Georgo L. Curry
raise an nrmy of " Oregon Volunteers,"
in nccordanco with the surest ions of
" Hush's Know Nothing Petition." Let
Bill Martin be appointed ns BrigailisrGen.,
Nesmith as Colonel, and Drew as Quarter,
'master General, with the Territoriti) Print
er following in the rear, with that " favor
ite rifle" ready cocked nnd primed, ready
to shoot all such who voted against Jo
una ns may wisli to gi nlnng to see the
fight. With such an army the Mor
mons would bo annihilated, of course, and
lhat, too, upon " sound and reliable" demo.

' CO" The loll bridge at Lafayetto has
been relinquished by the stockholders to
lamhill county, and is now converted into
'a free bridge. The county has made an
appropriation of $l,00l for repairing it.
The whole top has been cut away, aud a
n structure placed upon ihe abutments,
which renders tho bridgn entirely safe.
Mr. Ilawley, the noted bridge builder, who
made the repairs, has warranted il lo stand
for four years.
CO" The weather up l this dale has
Lcen remarkably mild. We had light
aio barely covering the ground last
Tuesday night, and a little heavier one
a Thuwda? n'ght.. ' ,
CO" The last Oregnnian gives iho upper
river steamer Surprise, Enterprise, and
James Clinton a pulTeach, laiJ en wilh a
" full brush," but no doubt well deserved
by these fine boats. It has, however, left
our fivorite steamer lilk.Ca pi. Swoilwr, of
iho Yamhill Irude, entirely out of vie.
Wo have oficn heard ihe Klk spoken of in
the most flalkring term, end many have
wondered why we didn't give it fine
notice. The fact is, such is our extreme
cautiousness about puffing anything to ihe
possible Injury of any human being who
may be influenced by us that we always
prefer lo wait I ill we shall be nble to speak
advisedly. We look a Irip on New Year's
day to Lafuyelle, with the "whole family,"
on ihe Clk, and found it a fast bnnt, a very
commodious one fur ihe traveling public,
a very safe one, nnd manned by as good
nnd gentlemanly a set ofoflicers, from Copt.
Sweiizer lo Fireman Wortman, as we ever
saw. The praise of this boat nnd oflicers
it in tho mouths of all the Yamhill people,
and timid ladies in that section who havo
never traveled by wntcr for fear of Ihoso
"awful bilers,"are now actually talking
nf venturing down the river en the Elk.
We would say to them, come along and
lo the merchants and farmers, patronize
this boat liberally, and keep her on the
iT A strange gentleman was discover,
ed last Tuesday night between nino and
ten o'clock lumbering around in (he rear of
PiordorflPs store, who,upon being seen, look
to his heels. Ho was pursued through
various turnings and Iwisiings along Main
street nnd its connecting ally, and several
shots fired after him, ono of which went
tli rough his coat, grazing his sido, when
ho "lay to," and suffered himj'.lf to he
lodged in the calaboose for a night's rest.
The next morning he excused himself by
pleading drunkenness which led him back
ef DierdorfFs in search of n place to bo "put
to bed," nnd was discharged.
It strikes us lhat it would bo well for
the liquor sellers lo leuso some suiluble sty,
and have it Cited up for the accommoda.
lion of such of iheir victims as wish ts tako
a snoozo after being corned.
A pair of horses, hitched to a wagon,
backed into tho basin just abovo the Linn
City Mills, last Tuesday, and were drown
ed. The driver saved himself by swimming
ashore. We learn that tho team belonged
to George Pease.
GO" Tho Rxpiess, in coming out of the
basin bolow the Linn Cily Mills, Inst Sat
urday, was driven by the force of the cur
rent against tho rocks with great violence,
staving a largo hole in her sido. She was
preserved from sinking by shifting iho
freight lo the opposite side. Since that
she ran upon a rock near Willamette
City, where, by the falling of ihe river, she
now lies " high and dry." She has as yel
sustained no material injury, and ns she is
well proped up, she will probably float off
safely when tho river rises.

It will be seen by those friends East to
whom Ihe au'hor of the above is sending
tbe Argus, that the "Old Ranger" is
"nlive and kicking," notwithstanding the
bullets he carries in his body, which he
received- from Indian rifles during the
Black Ilawk war. Tho "Old Ranker"
sill retains his mental faculties unimpair
cd ; his indomitable will unsubdued ; his
political honesty untarnished; his patriot,
ism undiminished ; and his courage is yet
equal te any emergency. He can faco a
risley bear, or a legion of red skins, with
out ever wincing ; and we never knew him
tremble but once, nnd that was when he
saw .'.he hideous and terrible monster Slav
ery making strides towards his beloved
Oregon. IIi pallor was short lived, how.
ever, and tho Old Ranger is himself again.
CO" We understand there is some talk
in Ibis cit (by the black democrats) of try
ing te improve the Times by gelling a
brace of cdiu-rs at it. h is proposed to em
ploy our felLwiowmman Antoine to sug
gest the ideas, and correct Hibben's or
thography and grammar. We think this
would be quite an improvement in the
cditnrial force, and save a few of these
subscribers who are stopping ihe paper,
because as ihey aay, " the nasty thing
ain't no account sense Waterman quit it."

'Amelia" is declined. She would do
well to confine herselflo proso writing fur
awhile. " Poetry" consists in something
besides rhymes. We can lay down no
rules for producing poetry; it mutt be in
a person before they give biilh lo II. In
fact, there is no word so hard for us to de
line ns ibis. Good poets are very scarce,
but wherever we do find one, it is enough
perhaps to say that such a person has a
soul nearly as Isrgo as lhat of a Seraph.
" Cobbler" is refused fur several reasons.
First, il is faulty in penmanship. Second
ly, it is lame in spelling, and dreadfully
crippled in its grammar. Thirdly, its
subject is ef little general interest.
Fourthly, it logic is of a loose, galloping
nature, nnd its diction is entirely too un
chaste for our columns. Fifthly, ill bloat
ed verbosity is intolerable, while its abor
tive efforts nl wit, while they no doubt made
the author laugh heartily, would be very
disgusting lo people of nice appreciation
nnd line sensibilities. Cobbler" would
do well 10 send his article lo ihe Times J it
would be at home in that journal.

For tin Argui.
Mr. Editor Passing a neighbor's house
yesterday, on my way lo tbe pnstoffice, I
noticed at tho washing tub nn Indian wo
man, which fact suggested lo me that fe
male help must be out of reach, for the
present at lea.-t ; ihe same may be said of
at least ono half the families in this coun
try. After returning home and opening
the Argus, the first thing that met my eye
was the article over tho signature of" Old
Oregoninn," inviting discussion en ono of
the peculiar wants of Oregon. Hoping that
I may suggest something of practical utility.
I will send you fur publication a circular,
copied from the New York Chronicle. The
editor remarks : " We have received from
B. L. Brace, Secretary of the Children's
Aid Society, a circular, which says :
" It has long been the complaint with
houstkerpers at ihe West, that sufficient
female help could net be obtained. There
are now in our cily, thousands of industri
ous, sober girls, of good character, who
are thrown entirely out of employment.
Many of these are desirous ofgeing to iho
West, and becoming house servants or do
" The Children's Aid Society has deter
mined, though the effort is somewhat out
of ils usual field, to attempt during this
season to connect this supply and demand,
To do this, and to aid these thousands of
poor girls, the West musl also lend a hand,
They must not expect well-trained servants
in these girls, as they are not accustomed
to house lubor; still they are willing and
able to learn, and only need patience and
kindness. Every allowanco should be
made for mistakes and delays in the begin
ing of such an enterprise. Those apply,
ing must send the fare as far as they are
able. In all cases tbe society will return
the money if no girl is found to answer in
general tbe description forwarded. "
The editor adds : " This movement on
tbe part of the Aid Society is worthy of
the encouragement of every one ; and we
hope no one who has il in his power to as
sist in this enterprise, will allow any trif
ling obstacle to prevent him doing so.
Letters should be addressed to Branch Of
fice, Clinton Mall, Astor Place, New York ;
stating exactly the wants, ihe wages offer
ed, their town, county, and State, and the
cheapest and best wsy of reaching the
place. References from the clergyman,
magistrate, or other responsible persons of
the town, will in all cases be demanded.
It will he tbe eeeVsror of the anciet lo
send out none but girls with good referent
es, and who er represented lo be of food
"The applications enclosing fares will
always be attended la first. There will lie
an understanding, and if possible, a writien
agieemrnt wilh each girl, thai her fare is
to be deducted from her wages."
The isnie ariiclo elicits the fact thai
there are from seven to ten thousand of
these domestic, thrown out of employ men)
in Oct., in New York, who are at present
dependent upon the ruinous and merciless
policy of ihe pawn brokers. In conclu
sion, tbe editor adds :
11 These resources must, of course, he
very soon exhausted by those who can
command them, and It is perfectly plain
that ifsemvihing canet be effectually and
speodily done to reopen the channels of
honest industry in those victims of the
'panic,' they must begin to contribute
largely to the rising lido ol misery aul of
crime which menaces the metropolis,"
And now, could net ihe peoplo ef Ore
gon supply, through this society, a pecu.
liar and pressing want Would il not be
a triumph for the advocates of free labor,
and serve to silence ihe clamorous demauds
of ihe pro-slavery, as well as the milkand-
nltr democracy that we absolutely need,
and it would be a good thing if we had,
a few of the subj-cls oftde peculiar insti
tution to supply ibis demand.

Mr. Editor I cut ihe following from
the Argus :
Umpqoa Co., O. T., Deo. 18, 1857,
Mr. Editor The fellewing question
has puzzled several persons in this vicinl-
IT, vix : "A former wishes lo l:re Ihe trig
fing of one hundred rods of dilch, for
which he is willing lo pay one hundred
dollars. lie employs I wo men to do the
work, lo one of whom he agrees to give
one dollar nnd twenty-five cents per rod,
and ihe oiher seventy-five cents per rod.
What part of the woik must each man d
to eel an equil share of the money f"
By the statement, it will bn seen, the
farmer pays two dollars fur dipping two
rods ol (liters. INow will some ot the "Ar
gus" readers figure it out, and give us the
result in the "Argus," or if it cannot be
done, tell us why I R
The question cannot be " figured out,"
nnd the '' why" is, there are loo many
limitations. Because, if Ihe cost of unity
and the cost of the nggregnte are bulb
fixed, the aggregato is found by dividing
the latter by the former. Rut $30,00
divided by 8l,25,40; and 8-'0, 00 di
vided by .75,-00 ; nnd 60 plus 40
100 rods, or 0 rods too many. Had not
the aggregate sum each is lo receive, been
fixed at t'0, JO, each could have dug SO
rods, and one would have received (03. SO,
nnd the other (37.50. Or had the price
per rod not been limited, but one lo havo
received 80. SO per rod more than the
other, and each to have received 830. 00,
the question would have been easy, and
one Imvedujj 33. 107 rods, al $1. .100 per
rod ; and the other 01. 803 reds, at 80. 809
per rod. Rulo for similar question, to
gether wilh many interesting remarks upon
such matters, mny bo found in Ray' Ar
ithmetical Key ; but as I have not that
work before me, I cannot give tho page.
With your permission, I will present ihe
following question far your Arithmetical
readers, merely premising that it is a fair
question, and that I will furnish the solu
tion iu two weeks, if not furnished sooner
by some one elso :

Fossils. Il is a curious fact that among
all the fossils of extinct plants or animal.
no remains have ever vet been found of
man ; lending to confirm the Scriptural
assertion lhat 'his most perfect of organ

had been replenished ith the plants and
animals that now flourish' on ils surface.
The fact of this agreement between the
Mosaic record nnd scientific discoveries is
not only of intense interest, but t 'rikes at
the root of the Atheistic 'notion of iho eter
nity of the world, by showing a succession
of creations. By harmonizing ihe details
