In our eastern exchanges we see sort
of skeleton political platform for a new
party jet to be constructed, said to Lave
been projected in Washington City by a
nu rubor of " proniinenl men of all political
parties" in private conclave assembled.-
Who these " proniinenl inm" were, we are
left to corn from I he specimen of their po
litical handicraft which i sent farth a a
ort of miniature model, ai a feeler, per
lisps, while the distinguished artists choose
to remain incoy. fur the present, ao that
public opinion may be formed entirely
upon (lie intrinsic menu of the project
without the undue influence of dialinguM
ed names. The new party, which is lobe
constructed afier ihe "modul" has been
duly approved by enough public men to
warraut the taking out of a patent, is to be
called (he "People's Party," and is of
course to embark Immediately upon the
great work of reforming and politically
regenerating the Government, by wresting
it from the hands of the corrupt parly now
in power. It proposes to unile (be "good,
conservative, and patriotic' of all political
parties into one grand opposition to the
pro-slavery sectional democracy an oppo
sition which shall be so intensely 'national'
by ignoring the whole nigger question that
s doughface cotton merchant in Wall
street, a slavery extension anti Admiuist ra
tion democrat in Lecompton, and a Union
loving, slave-breeding American in South
Carolina, can ait down and smoke tho pipe
of pesre (anti agitation) together, with
perhaps Gov. Wise as the Grand Sachem
of political ceremonies, with (wo or three
of his live thousand dollar niggers to brus
down the cobwebs and put things to right
generally in the ante chamber to the gran
We have read tho emhtyo platform of
principles carefully, and rind it made u
of a string of axiomatic truths which fe
would question, with a small sprinkling of
Americanism dono up in auch form as to
render it palatable to a Southern anti-Ad
ministration democrat, who is always sus
picious of nowly imported frpe-lubor voters,
and which at the same lime will go duw
as a sort of compromise" with tho North
and South Americans, who begin lo sec
thnt something of their former radicalism
must bo lopped off, in order to suit the
4uslcs of high toned conservative, and
make a formidable party. It is just sucli
a platform as might be expected from n
nights work of disaffected democrats,
whose stomachs are not lough enoti"h lo
digest the fanaticism and villainy of sucl
modern democrat to schemes as that of Le
compion nnd unglish, and who are not
I uite honest and patriotic enough to join
tho Republican party, with tho assistance
of such leading Americans as are discour
aged at tho future prospects of American
ism based upon a single idea, which, though
porhaps important, is as much absorbed by
(ha magnitude of more predominant ones
as Ihe brightest Used star in the firmament
is absorbed by ihe noonday rays of the
great dispenser of light and heat. To coin
pare great inings wmii smuii, tins new
"People's Parly," which is to be com
pounded from the fragmente of othvr par
ties struck off by the attrition of conflict,
or by a disappointed ambition, and such
floating material as from a want of settled
principle fails to attach itself to tho lio
publican cause, And from a fair stock of
intelligence and independence rendVrs ii
until for "sound and reliable-" democratic
material we say that this newly-projected
party has a prototype nearr home in the
" national democratic" fizzlo, which, by ex
ceeding bad counsel, momentarily succeed
ed the Republican party in Oregon, but
which we trust is now effectually buried
out of sight. It is perfectly useless to form
political panics upon minor issues, no mai
ler how good in themselves, so lung as the
public mind is convulsed by absorbing and
overwhelming ones. The Roman people
could never bo induced to discuss the petty
blunders of a triumvirate, or (he griev
ances of a small capitation tnx, so long as
a besieging army of foreign barbarians was
thundering at tho gates of Rome and the
American people will never be induced to
ground their arms and retire from the
watch-tower of American Liberty, so long
as the slave-driving democracy are persist
ently pursuing a policy which looks loan

of the slave trade a policy which, by the
repeal of the Missouri Compromise, the
opinion of the Supreme Court declaring the
Territories opened lo a nigger.Inbor capital

tution, aod which, by the recent I.ecomp.
Ion policy of the Administration, has en
deavored to crush out popular sovereignty
and inaugurate slavery in Kansas, in spite
of more than ten thousand free-State ma
jority, and which, by a late declaration by
the Administration organ that slavery is a
national institution and goes into all the
free States by the Constitution of the Uni
ted Slates, as also the present disposition of
the parly to adopt a rule keeping all the
Territories from taking the initiative step
toward applying for admission till they
havo S population which will soon be fixed
at 130,000, in order, under the ruling of
the Supreme Court opinion, to give slavery
a chance logeta permanent foothold, we
say, so long as this policy, which has beon
developed step after step, is being urged i
order to dethrone State sovereignty, tram
pie tho Declaration of Independence und
foot, violate the Constitution, and crush out
popular sovereignty not only In tho Tern
lories but the States, with an eye lo na
ionslizing slavery and sectionaliring lib
eny, and an Africanization of the conti

perfectly useless to think of organizing

everybody will acknowledge, and which
looks morely to a political reform by plac

Issues of Ihe day are ignored, and the black
cloud and muttering thunder that Judical
the gathering storm are entirely lost sight
of. Upon this issue, which has been pre
cipitated upon us by the advice of Calhoun,
who was a secessionist, and shaped
whole political nolioy with a viow lo an
ultimate rupture of the Union by the form
ation of a Southern sectional party, who
told his friends in South Carolina that the
" (arid issue would never do to effect the
breach, but it must be shifted to the slav
cry issue" upon this issue the slave
breeding democracy and the Republican
parly have locked horns; and all parties
gotten up upon side issues are bound to be
Hbsorbod by the two great parties that are
already in the field,
In Missouri there are three parties in
the field the frco democracy, which is
based upon tho idea that a gradual emnn
cipation act would work infinitely lo the
moral, social, and economical advantage o
the State, and the slavo-brccdirg democra
cy, who are of course In favor of perpetu
ating the rule of slavery. The American
party ennes in as a sort of mediator, de
p'ecuting all agitation, and proposing to
unite the people on other issues, while tho
"nit'err issue" is entirely ignored. Of
course this third party must bo eventually
swallowed up by the other parties, which
have joined issue upon a inattor which vi
tally affects ihe welfure of iho people in
more ways than one, and w hich must be
decided before matters of less cousequence
shall absorb the publio mind.
The Republican party throughout the
Union, while it joins issue with the false de
mocracy on alavcry extension and a des
potic rule for ihe Territories, is sound on
tho minor issues of tho day, and if its creed
is not s uflicicnlly amplo lo meet all the ex
igcncii s of a progressive people, there is
nothing to preveut another National Con
vention from getting up another platform
exactly suited to the times in which we
ivc. This changing names has a bad influ
ence, and much of the success of the dem
ocratic party is owing to its retaining its
old name, which became sacred with many
before the parly abandoned tho principles
of freedom and forsook the interest of the
hurd-handed luhorer, and sold itself to the
negro-breeding fire-eaters of the South.
Thcso are our views on tho subject of
portic', and we wish just hero to enter our
solemn protest ncainst our Republican
friends in the States offering tho least en
courogetnent lo any new project. Let us
stand by the Republican colors victory is
ours sooner or later, and wo are not going
to desert tho Republican ship,

too high to reach tho pockets which con
tained exhausiless treasure low down on
the bars in tho bed of the river. Two or
three Oregoninns have lately returned
from a flying trip to Delllingham Bay,
thoroughly disgusted at the whole prospect
and wondering how any Oregonian could
think of taking that roulo to the mines.
One of them goes so far as to express his
belief that the Frazier river mines are a
grand humbug. While at Bellingham
Bay he says that everybody he saw was
duly impressed with tho great richness of
ths Frazier river bars, and no doubt seemed
to be entertained but what they would
"pan out" well " when the water full."
lie could however find nobody who had
seen the gold himself, or could exactly say
who had seen it. He saw two or three
men just in from Frazier's river who, upon
being interrogated, said, "Oh yes, there is
plenty of cold there." Upon being re
quested to show a " sample," it wasn't con
venicnt just iben, neither could they mnke
il convenient ts produce it when offered
(40 for s single ounce as a "specimen."
Our friend thinks that thousands of peo
pie who have staked their all on staked
out claims on ihe bars of ihe river, will be
badly deceived " when the water falls."
The Thompson's river mines he could get
little or no information from they were
too far away. I
The ruget Sound papers have just got
hold of the news (" five dollars to throe
pans" on the branches of the Yakima)
brought in by Copt. Robertson, who was
driven in by the Indians, whose exploits
we have already chronicled. These pa
pers are retailing this startling news under
very imposing headings, and we see that
propositions are made through the papers
by several men to pilot companies into
the Yakima country. Now there may be
paying mines on the Yakima, and there
may not. We have taken a good deal of
pains lo find out just what kind of dirt that
"three panfuls' containing the "five do!
lars" was, and we can assure our Puget
Sound friends that the dirt was taken from
bar covered w ith large holders and very
ard lo get Every miner knows that in
such diggings a man may make wages at a
dollar a pan, nnd he may not at two dollars
pan. The Yakima mines may pay and
they may not. Wo are inclined to think
the only mines that will pay well, are not
to be reached much short of Thompson's
river, and the news from there is, up to
this date, too meagre to justify a man w ho
as a farm in leaving home before he hears
something more reliable.

to poison Mr. Markham, who is now prac

The result of the debate last Monday
night, in this city, has been an unparalleled
excitement since, on tho lager question.
On Tuesday scarcely anything could be
heard on the streets and in all the stores
where groups were assembled but argu

was the public interest in the debate that
the Court-house was crowded to overflow

their pleasure by tremendous cheers at
regular intervals through a debate that
lasted till half after ten oclock.
This time Louis, who keeps the lager
beer brewery, came to our relief, and made
a speech on the negative. The anti-beer
men were dissatisfied with the result, and
the debate was adjourned over to next
Monday night. We hear that the anti
