Man with F.alaaa.
The English practice of boarding our
vessels io the Gulf of Mexico to search of
slavers has been persisted in till no leu
than twenty-one of our vessels have been
boarded. The conduct of Great Britain in
this matter elicited quite a stormy debate
ia the Senate, and many warlike speeches
were made, which have reaultcd so far in
nothing but an exhibition of a good deal of
buncombe proweaa on the part of some and
a real disposition to fight on the part of
others. The tone of Senators ia decidedly
belligerent but we entertain no doubt but
(hat England will either disavow the con
duct of her officers or make such other
apology as will be " highly satisfactory" to
the Administration, if not to the nation nt
There was a rumor in tLe States that a
vessel had beea fired into off Fensncola
and one maa killed, by the British war
steamer Styx, but as the news was tel
egraphed from the heart of Georgia, instead
of a sea-board town, it was not credited in

The Lawrencevillo Republican of May
21 gives an account of another horrible
outrage committed upon the Free State
settlers by an armed party of ruffians,
eight of whom lived in Ksnsas and seven
teen in Missouri, headed by the notorious
Brockett and Hamilton. The ruffians mndu
a descent upon a small settlement on the
'Osage river and took twslve men prisoners,
whom they (bund upon their farms at work.
They then took their prisoners into a ravine,
.and ordered them to form into a line, when
the word was given " tako aim fire 1"
-and the whole twelve full to the ground,
ifour killed and all the rest but one wound
ed. They were shot at the distanae of rive
3aoes, when the murderers rifled their
"pockets and shot one man in the head who
was found to be yet brcathine. One of
them made his escape unhurt and gave the
.alarm. In less than twelve hours three
hundred men had assembled at the scene
of slaughter, but the murderers had es-
capea into Missouri. Ureal excitement
prevailed in Southern Kansas and on the
.Missouri border in consequence of it.
Wow Route to the Mlaea.
We learn from a gentleman who has
conversed with citizens of Vancouver that
a good route has boen found across the Cas
cades, on almost a direct northeast course
from Vancouver, shortening the distance to
the mines seventy-rive miles. The con
tract of opening the trail in three weeks
has been let to a responsible man for 82000.
The trail passes over no stream of any con
siderable sice in the mountains. We think
this will prove to be the very route for Or
ogonians going with pack animals after all.
03" Mr. Pattorson, our highly efficient
City Marshal, is abnut to accomplish what
one of his predecessors ever did in ridding
our streets of the nuisances in the shape of
swine and drunken Indians. He has kept
both the pound and jail doing good service
this week. Several drunken Indians have
been marched off to the lock-up, despite of
many exhibitions of disguat at such treat
tneut. None of them have yet been in
duced to divulge the names of the parties
who furnished them the liquor, although
one of them was kept in jail five days with
only one meal of victuals.
, In passing through the country we
are sorry to notice that there is a good deal
of smut in wheat. We also hoar that in
.consequence of the rush" to the mines,
soma farmers 'will not be able to save near
all of their grain. Machines are not to
be had, and farmers who have large fields
-of grain, are compelled to cut it with the
cradle with the usual " family force." Do.

more threshers led. A man who hat had
great experience in threshing, after pur.
chasing one of them and trying it, informed

03" The trial of Gen. Walker at New
Orleans for a violation of the neutrality
laws, resulted ia a disagreement by the
jury, ten being for acquittal, and two for
conviction. The Prosecuting All'y has
entered a nolle prosequi in his case since.
The celebrations of the Fourth of July
which took place hut Saturday and Mon
day, at the various poind heard from, were
uncommonly well attended, and gave am
ple evidence that our citiscus have lost
none of their wonted patriotism.
On Saturday, the Sons of Temperance
and tho Sunday Schools of Oregon City,
Milwaukie, and Portland celebrated the
day at Milwaukie, and had a picnic dinner.
Their tables were loaded with nice things,
not the least of which was an abundant
supply of cherries from the gardens of
Luclling and U. W. Walling, llie at
semblage was quite large, from eight Is
nine hundred being in attendance. Rev
Mr. Kingtley, of Portland, and Kev. Mr.
Atkinson, of Oregon City, made addresses
appropriate to the occasion. The Oregon
City and Portland Brass Bsnds were in si
tendance, and furnished good music during
At Aurora, just beyond Pudding River
twelve miles from this toward Salem, we
learn that there were about a thousand
people met and bail an excellent time of it
over a very good dinner, which was eon
tributcd by the citizens. W.C.Johnson,
Esq., we h arn, made them a very good
At Forest Grove, tho seat of Pacific
University, in Washington rounty, thirty
miles northwest of this, there was a gath
ering of seven hundred people, which we
addressed. The lack of instrumental mu
sic was very well supplied by some very
good singing. The supply of provisions
was abundant. Fourteen deer were bar
bacucd, with as much other meat. The
deer (thirteen of them) were all killed two
days before by two companies of seven men
each, and some of them were very fat and
nice. We did not learn the names of sny
of tho hunters excepting that of our old
friend Almorao Hill, who officiated as cap
tain of one of tho companies.
On Monday we were present at the La
fayette celebration in Yamhill county,
thirty miles southwest of this city. There
wore fifteen hundred penle present. The
oration was dolivored by John II. Smith
when the people repaired to the dinner ta
bio, which was set for eight hundred per
sons. 1 lie taolo was nearly lined twice,
yet there were mnny basketfuls of provis
ions which were not eaten. The brass
band from Chehalcm discoursed music
for the occasion, which was much applaud'
cd, and, after the toasts, master Frank, son
of Professor Carey, delighted tho crowd
with some of his choice songs. In the
evening M. Wolfe, Esq., gave the de
lighted citizens of the place an exhibition
of choice fireworks. Mr. Wolfe deserves
much credit for his herculean efforts to
make the celebration acceptable to the peo
pie. He seemod to be the master spirit
of the day, and used every exertion to
make everybody comfortable. . He has the
credit of being one of the most enterprising
citizens of Yamhill county. The next
day, we returned home on the Elk, which
was literally crowded with ladies and gen
tlemen, who lived at toe various river
towns and landings above here, who had
been to the Lafayette celebration. CapL

of it last Monday. We hear there was a
very large gathering. The Fire Compa

in the highest terms of the "good time."
Gen. Hamilton delivered the oration, and
several volunteer speeches were made by
our "promising young men." This ends

rlUsh Oalra.ca ana the American FUf t
The Washington correspondent of the
San Francisco Herald, under date of June
3d, writes as follows concerning the re
peated violations ef the American Flag in
ihe neighborhood of Cuba by British ves
sels of war :
Congress and the country have been
thrown into deep agitation, which haa been
increasing for the last ten days, by the au
dacious and unprovoked outrages ef Brit
ish cruisers npon our vessels on the coast
of Cuba and elsewhere. We have heard
already of some forty instances in which
eur vessels nave been hred at, or into,
brought te, and overhauled by the British
cruisers, on the pretext or nunting tor
slavers. Every day adds to the list of
J be citizens of some of our seaports pro
posed to fit out armed vessels to avenge
these insults ; but ihe President, very prop
erly and promptly, ordered the whole dis
posable naval force down into the bull.
Most of the thips-of-war, so ordered, inclu
ding the Wabash, have already sailed for
the scene of operations, and are under or
ders to protect our vessels from such as
saults. Some small iron steamers, the Dol
phin, Water Witch, Arctio, and Plymouth
-all gallantly manned and commanded,
have sailed and with every disposition te
lay along side or the iintisb vessols-of-war
lbs otyx, the forward, and Ihe JJuzzard,
that have been so busy in chasing and
searching our Vessels.
We shall in a few days have in Ihe uulf
of Mexico vessels ' mounting 140 funs,
while the British naval force on the West
India station mounts 370 guns, a fearful
odds against os in case of a collision, which
many believe to be inevitable
Ibe Committee on roreiun Alimrs of
the senate made a report with resolutions
on the subject of these aggressions. The
resolutions declare in the most solemn man
ner, that these aggressions shall not be tol
erated, and tbat any measures necessary to
sustain tins position ought to be adopted.
ibe benate ta in favor of tbe resolutions
so far as they go, but a number of the Sena
tors, inoludint; Donglas, Hale, Wilson,
Toombs, and Mallory, are desirous of us
ing tut ther, and directing our naval force
to capture and bring into port the offending
British cruisers, without wailing for Ihe
resnlt of our remonstrances to the British
Government. Should the British Govern
ment avow the acts of their officers, then
it would be an international question. If
not, then the offending parties should be
dealt with accordingly.
JN ei ther the Executive Government nor
Congress will suffer again any negotiations
with England upon tbe question of tbe
right of visit er search. The American
doctrine, that the flag protects the vessel
and everything in it, will never be yielded.
In 1843 this Government had occasion to
declare its firm determination on this sub

as is believed, in the support of a pretense
which gives it the dominion of the seas.
England will never relinquish the preten
sion of a right to visit ships on the ocean
to ascertain their nationality.
Ibe orders under which the British crui-
sers are acting, were probably given by
tbe Palmerston administration.
As a ministerial orisis exists in England,
it is likely tbat Palmerston may soon
again be at the head of the ministry, in
which case we shall have much trouble on

prehended from the Indians on their ao
count, as their strength will probably be
swelled by large accessions to iheir num
bers from Slrilacoora and Seattle, at both
of which plaoes, parties are now in wait
ing lo join the expedition. The subsis
tence taken by those who started from this

vigorous, and will make the trip without
any doubt. The services of Mr. W . II

Toombs' Bankrupt Law. Mr. Toombs'
Bankrupt Law is being actively considorcd
by the Judiciary Committee, and it will
probably be presented to tbe Senate early
next week. It is understood it win be a
general bill, including individuals, corpo
rations, chartered banks, and any associa
tion of persons authorized to issue notes,
bills, ore. It wilt provide for voluntary
and involuntary bankruptcy, and will be
retroactive. The retroactive feature will
be guarded so as to exclude all who, sub
sequent lo January last or any other time,
have mado assignments, in contemplation
of the passage of a bankrupt law, which
gave preference to one creditor over an
other, and the bankrupt in suth esses
shall not reoeive a discbarge unless with
the consent of a majority of his creditors
who have not been so preferred. The in
volantary bankruptcy applies to cases
where Ihe debts exceed two thousand dol
lars, and the person declared bankrupt is
entitled to trial by jury all transfers of
properly of any kind, for the purpose of
giving any creditor, endorser or other per
son any preference or priority over general
creditors, to be null and void, and the par
lies obtaining them lo be sued for such
amount as assets of the bankruptcy.
With regard to banks and ether issuers of
psper money, they are to come under tbe
bead of involuntary bankrupts; and in ad.
dition lo all liabilities which attach to indi
viduals, they may be declared bankrupt for
the non payment for ten days after demand
of any bill, note or other liability all the
expenses of proceedings to be paid by the
parties interested, and under no pretense to
be paid by the United States. These are
the general features of the bill, we believe,
It is to go into effect next November if now
Under all tbe circumstances, it ia exceed
ingly doubtful if it can pass at this session,
but the general impression is that seme bill
or the obaracler indicated will become
law of this Congress. The retroactive
clause will meet with a good deal of oppo
sition, but if it is well guaranteed thai
may be overcome. A question will also
arise as to the power el the general govern
ment to interfere with the State corpora
tions; but if ibis is pressed, the banks
may force the agitation of the much more
serious question, if it should be carried out,
of tbe power of tbe general government to
prohibit altogether Ihe issue of monpy by
authority of any of the Slates. Mr.
Toombs will, doubtless, call the subject up
in tbe Senate next week. Washington
