JST The Temperance society of this
city meets a week from next Monday
night at the Court house. Mr.Cantcnwine
has agreed to address the citizens at thnt
time upon the feasibility of a new move
which he has already inaugurated on Ba
ker's Prairie. He proposes to call his so
ciety " Progressive Association," a it is de
signed in addition to temperance to further
tho interests of morality, science, or relig
ion, by the discussion of such questions as
may be deemed profitiible by the members.
The objects of the association are praise
worthy, and we think that much light
could bo developed by such discussions.

lc demonstration in Portland last Monday
night. It seems that on the way up Capt
Dall of the Columbia had severely flogged
a deck Land and put him in irons. Upon
reaching Portland, a company was raised
consisting of California miners who came
up on the boat and several citizens of Port
land, which proceeded to release the pris
oner on board. The officers arrested Dall
and he was taken before the authorities
and fined 950. Not satisfied with this,
the crowd made an attempt to lay hold of
tho Captain in order to lynch him. Under

Instructions to Gov. Dknvkr. Gen.
Cuss has sent out his instructions to Gov.
Denver, of Kansas as in duty bound, un
der the English Kansas bill. We quote
an important paragraph from it :
"L'uder the socond section ofihe act,
yoursolf, the District Attorney, the Secre
tary of the Territory, the President of the
Council, and ibe Speaker of ihe House of
Representatives, are constituted a Board of
Commissioners, to conduct this important
election. The President has entire confi
dence ihat, so far as in you lies, (he elec
tion will be fairly and properly conducted.
Your power and your duties are suffi
ciently pointed out by the aot and by your
previous instructions. It is greatly to be
desired that the fivo Commissioners should
act in concert in all their proceedings.
Tho President above all things desires
that there should be a fair expression of
the popular will on this important question ;
and that any person who may commit
or attempt to commit the Irauus puntsha
bio under Ihe act may be prosecuted with
Ihe utmost rigor or the law. It is to be
hoped that the people of Kansas, relieved
from all outside influences, may be left to
decide the question for themselves, wbotb
er they w ill immediately come into the
Union under the provision of the act, or
win remain in a territorial cunuuion un
til their population is equal lo the number
required for a Keprescntative in Con
Gen. Cass advised that Gov, Denver
should not convene the board till the now
District Attorney was appointed, but his
advice was not followed. Tho board met
and very wisely appointed tho first Monduy
in August as the election day for the Ter
ritory. The people are then to vote upon
the Lecompton Constitution. Tho day
chosen is also tho day for the Slate election
in Missouri, and the Border Ruffians will
be wanted at homo then.
05" On the 3d of June at Lawrence,
Kansas, an affray occurred between Gen.
James II. Lane and Gaius Jenkins, the lat
ter nn old and well-known citizen of Law
rence, in which Jenkins was instantly killed
by a shot from a gun in the hands of Lane.
Some of Jenkins's friends then fired two or
three revolver shots at Lane, one of which
took effect in his leg. The original cause
of the misunderstanding between them
was a " claim" which has been in dispute
between thorn for more than two years
The immediate cause of tho late affray
was a well in Lane's yard from which Jen
kins was in the habit of using water.
The water getting low, Lane requested
Jenkins not to como on the premises for wa
ter, but the request was not heeded, and
Jenkins persisted in going to the well, and
even cut down Lane's fenco once or twice
to open a nay. At the time of the killing
Jenkins was armed with a Sharpe's rifle,
nud his companions, a iin. hew and two t
hired mm, with revolvers. Jenkins com
menced cutting down the fenco with his
ax. Lane came out unarmed and ordered
him to desist. He went on with the chop
ping, nnd Lane went into the house and
eturned with a single-barreled shot-gun.
3y this time the fence was cut down, and
'(.'iikins, with his ax in a menacing position,
.ordered his companions to come on. They
did so, with ih-'ir revolvers drawn and
cocked. Lane fell back, repeatedly or
dering them off, and threatening to shoot
unless they left, but they continued to ad.

instantly fell dead, without advancing an
Lane's wound may cause him the loss of
a leg. Jenkins, as well as Lane, was a
The Inundations in the West. Are
we ever to hear the last of the floods in
the West ! Each mail brings tidings of
some new disaster. The telegraph has
only just ceased to recount the tale of the
crevasse in New Orleans, when it is called
into operation lo describe that of Missis
sippi. Atoturr points above these there
are brief account of oriflow. . And in
the North-west, tho inundation has been
without parallel. The storm of tho 12th
Juno almost laid the whole prairie land of
the West undnr water. The Wabash and
all the other valley are converted into
lake. The river has risen so high above
it banks, that every wharf and levee, be
ginning with that of St. Louis, is under
water. On the upper part of the river, the
paper contain account of twelve towns or
village! which aro either partially or
wholly destroy od or submerged. Cairo Is
a mere wreck ; the Illinois Central Com
pany must have lost nil their workshops,
(lores, oars, track and wood.
It is estimated that in Louisiana alone
the less of sugar caused by the inundation
is equal to $3,000,000 and that of cotton
94,000,000. It may be said, perhaps, that
allowing fairly for the destruction of corn
and other crops in the Northwest, of rail
road proporty, real estato and dwelling
houses, the total dnmage by this spring's
inundation is not less than twenty five mill
ions of dollars,
This calamity is not wholly unredeemed.
The submerged lands on the Mississippi
will yield vastly increased crops for tho
next few years, and the loss of corn in the
West will enhance tho market value of
that which remains. There is some good
in every ill. N. Y. Herald.
W A terrible catastrophe happened on
the Mississippi river on Sunday morning,
June 13. The steamboat Pennsylvania,
while on the way from New Orleans to Si
Louis, when ot Ship Island, about seventy
five miles below Memphis, exploded hor
boileis, caught fire and burned to (he wa
ter's edge. Of three hundred and fifty
persons on bo ird, it is believed at least one
hundred perished, whilo of those saved
nearly all were more or less injured.
Tho survivors floated down the river
about half an hour before any assistance
came to (heir relief ; when a flat boat
was cut loose from its moorings by a party
in a log cabin and the boat drifted dowo the
stream; luckily it came in contact with
tho wreck, and in a few moments it was
filled to overflowing; About 125 or 140
got on Ihe flat boat and pushed away Irom
the wreck, leaving SO thereon. Il as the
intention to let the flat bout flout ahead lo
a tow-head not far ofT, and after discharging
her freight, shove her out and allow her
lo again float towards the wreck. Hut be
foro this could be accomplished, some bar
rels of turpentine in the hold of the wreck
ignited, and in a few moments the whole
mass w'as a sheet of flame. Every one of
the fifty left upon it was in a short time
reduced to ashes.
It was thought that there were about 30
ladies in tho ladies' cabin at the lime of
the explosion. Nonoof them were injured
at that time, but on the wreck that was
consumed by fire there were many ladies.
At the point of disaster, the river is at
least two miles wide. The whole country
is submerged. There was no hope for the
very best of swimmers. The river swept
with tremendous force through the cliu'e
and bottoms, nud. in n very short lime all
thnt could be seen of the ruin was a smol
dering mass resembling burning brush half
smothered by water.
THE MOU.MO WAR F.NDtl).
Ry the following accounts it may be
seen that the Mormon troubles are at an
end. On tho 10th June the PresiJcnt sent
the followiug mcssago In Congress:
A message was received from the Pres
ident enclosing a copy of a dispatch from
Gov. Cumming, dated May 2, received at
the Stale Department yesterday. From
this, the President says, there is reason lo
believe that our difficulties with Utah
have terminated and tho laws are restored.
He congrat ulatcs congress on this a uspicious
event, expresses the opinion that there will
be no occasion to make the appropriation
for the three Regiments of Volunteers re
cently authorized for the purpose of quell
ing the disturbances in Utah, and for the
protection of the emigrant trains and sup
plies, and says that Texas can be defended
by the regular troops now within her lim
its. The I 'resident is the' more gratified
because the events in Utah will afford
gome relief lo the Treasury, and not require
a loan and additional taxation of the peo
ple. In a letter to Secretary Cass, Gov.
Cumming says ho left the camp on the
5th of April, en route to Salt Lake City,
accompanied by Col. Kane as his guide,
and two servants, in passing through the
settlements he was greeted with such res

interview Young evinced a willingness to

pect, Governor Cumming fancied, met
with the approval of the majority of
the Emit Lake community. Ihe territo

late acting Secretary of the Territory.

gret when he learned that Acent Hart

hostility the Indians in Vinta Valley.

Cumming hopes that Hart can vicdicste
himself from the charges, yet he thinks
tbey demand investigation. Gov. Cum
ming had informed Geo. Johnston ihat be
suouio proDauiy oe compelled to make a
.I . , . . ... .
requisition upon him for a sufficient force
to chastise the Indians. At every point
Gov. Cumming was recognized as the
Governor of Utah, and received with mili
tary salute. There were illuminations in
his honor. Having beard numerous com
plaints, Governor Cummins caused a pub
lic notice lo be posted, sigmiying bis read
iness to relieve those who deemed them
selves aggrieved by being illegally re
strained of their liberty and assuring pro
tection lo all persons. He kept his office
open at all hours of the day and night, and
registered oo men, S3 women and 71 cliil
ilrcn desirous of bis protection, and evin-,
... I. -l .
would leave for the South on the 3d of
May. He says that ho will restrain all
the proceedings of the military for the
present, nnd until he snail receive addi
tional instructions from tho President.
On the reception of this peaceful intelli
gence, Gen. Suott was at onco summoned
lo Washington, for cousultation, and il has
been stated that orders were sent by ex
press lo stop the roinfurcements now on
their way to Utah, but to forward the sup
plies already in motion, as a largo body of
troops would be needed iu Utuh for some
time. Tho next news we had wns, that five
days luter advices had reached Washington
from Camp Scoll, which made it certain that
Gov. Cumming had been deceived as to
tho intentions of the Mormons; that he
was virtually a prisoner in Salt L ike City ;
the Mormons wero fortifying themselves
at every point, and were as much deter
mined to fight as ever. The vrry latest
telegraphic advices, I ovrcver, re affirm the
peaceful news first received, and in this
delightfully mixed up condition the Uieh
news must remain until further advices
substantiate or deny the prevailing reports.
The following are our latest dispatches:
Washington, June 15. Contrary to
the advices sent from hero lo some of the
press, the war Department has received no
later dales from Utuh lliau those from
Gov. Cumming. Ihe view of some ofli
cers of the army as expressed in letters is
thai he went into Salt Lake City too hasti
ly J that he has been deceived,' and that
the Mormon friendship is not to be relied
upon. Il will bo recollected that the
army was sent to Utah as posse comitatus,
subject to the orders of Gov. Cumming,
and is not lo move without his direction.
There are no new developments by the
last arrival. The Army will movents re
cently directed, branching ofTat such in
termediate localities as require protection.

OiT The Washington correspondent of
the ti.Y. Times is responsible for the sub
joined bit of gossip respecting Mr. Douglas
and the President:
The rupture between the President
and Judge Douglas has been rendered
more durable by recent occurrences. A
number of very extreme Southern men,
not yet prepared to break with tbe North
ern Uemocracy, waited upon the President
last week, and represented to him that thev
could not afford lo drive Mr. Douirlas into
an alliance with the Republicans, or lo per
mit him to be crushed by them. It was
therefore necessary to the cause of the
Sooth that Mr. Douglas should be returned
to Ihe Senate, and thai event might depend
upon the patronago of Ihe Administration.
Mr. Buchanan instantly betrayed alrons
and vindictive feeling. He declared that
he would not slay hit hand; that it was
Cing a deposition VI proccruwg iu ius
United States, A large majority of theso
people were of English birth, and wre
promised assistance. Gov. Cumming says
his visit to the Tabernacle will never be
forgotten. There were between 3000 and
4000 persons assembled for the purpose of
public worship, and there was a most prfl.
found silenco wl.cn he appeared.
Ilrigham Young Introduced him by
iiamo as Governor of Utah, and he (Cum
ming) addressed iliem for half an hour,
lulling them to uphold the Constitution
and the laws; thnt he would expect their
obedience to nil lawful authority, at ihe
same lime a-suring them of hi determina
tion lo administer equal and exact justice,
etc. He was listened to respectfully. He
invited responses to his speech, and several
spoke, referring in excited tones to ihe
murder of Jos. Smith, to the service ren
dered by the Mormon battalion in the Mex
ican war, and recapitulating long chapters
of their wrongs.
The tumult fearfully Increased as they
progressed, but an appeal from Young re.
stored calmness. Several afterwards ex
pressed regret for their behavior. Gov.
Cumming proceeds lo describe the exodus
of iho Mormons, saying the people, includ
ing the inhabitau't of Sail Lake, in the
northern part of the Territory, are leaving.
The roads everywhere are filled with wag
nns loaded with provisions and household
furniture. Women and children, often
without shoes or hats, are driving their
flocks, they seeming not only content but
cheerful. It is the will of the Lord, they
say, and they rejoice to change the com
forts of a homo for the trials of the wilder
ness. Their ultimole destinies were not fixed
on. 11 Going south," seemed to be suffi

Governor Cumming thinks they are go

of the influential men had left their com.
