SIl)C rcgoujargus. W. U ADS, IOITO AXO MoraiCToa. OBJOOrf CITY I SATURDAY, AUGUST 29, 1858. Ulvlag It Vn l l.at. " Then, It will ba ocn lint we anticipate (lis fnymtni of Uie war debt will not be likely to Uk piao sooucr than three year from tliif date. In payment may be, and nut unlikely ia further oft' than Uiatj we think it eunimt reasonably ba e peeled to oonie sooucr," Ciapkay't Organ, It is somewhat encouraging to us to per severe in our efforts to disseminate truth when wc are finally cnubled to extort such a confession on the above from a blockhead whom no person but oursilf (we glory not of ourself) has been nblo to bout a single fuct into. Wc have shown over and over again that all Hint has been done of uecount toward niuking provision for the payment of the war debt, beside building the Pa cific Railroad, wan done by the " Repub lican Confess," presided over by Speaker Bunks. We have also aspired our readers that the only hojie we could reasonably eu tertuin for the future was in a Republican administration. Note the cli(tie organ places the payment of the war debt " three years from this dute," which will be the seventh month of the Republican adminis tration which in all probability will be in augurated in 18G1. Xow that Jo Lane has pocketed that $17,000, and his demo cratic coadjutors in " Union-saving" have realized nearly a cool hulf million stolen from the Treasury by the Fort Snelling and Willett's Point swindles, a good opening is made for investing their democratic funds in war scrip at about fifteen cents to a dollar, wc shall expect to hear the whole demo cratic press laboring to depreciute war scrip by putting its payment as fur off as possible. Let it be remembered that when thesfl organs were trying to elect Jo Lane they were publishing with the fullest en dorsement such speeches of his as the fol lowing: " 1 you will tied me as your Delegate, God blest your touh, I'll have the war money on it way in four monlht after Congrett meets and the only reason J didn't yet it before wai the black republi ant had a majority in Congress." t&" The Sentinel of Aug. 7 shows that Col. TTault, the Napoleon of the Demo cratic press in Oregon, has returned to bis post and is wielding his pen with his usual vigor. His determination to maintain the position almost unanimously conceded to him by the democracy as a leader, seems to le evinced in his editorial, while he raps the clique over the knuckles, and points out their weak points thus: " Let us inquire what firat brought abort tho or ganization of the Democratic party iu Oregon. If any of the ultra politicians of Uie present day know the principal eauie, let them assign it We, for ourself, think we know full well that the location of the publio buildings during the sewion of the Territorial Legislature in IbjO-51 had much to do with the then party organization i nud we find men who opposed Gen'l Lano in 1851, etill opposing him." So then a " rock-bottom democrat," ac cording to the Colonel, is one w ho goes for keeping the " public buildings" on the Sa lem " basalt." In the following manner docs the Colonel point a significant far nt the post record: '' In 1831, the firat timo Gen'l Lane was a can didate for office in Oregon, there was a Salemite run against him for Delegate to Congress, who re ceived the support of some of the leading Demo crats of the present day." A Woman Brutally Whipped ix Penn sylvania. Tho Medina American soys that a great excitement has been created in Deluwaro county, Pennsylvania, by the whipping of Joanna Conner, a refractory member of the Mother church, by a Cath olic priest. Mrs. C. nnido onth before the magistrate that during her husband's ab sence the priest came in and ordered her to kneel, and then whipped her unmercifully with a twisted wiro scourge. Sho finally broke awny and ran out on the piazza, cry ing and screaming. Ho followed, drove her back, again mado her kneel, and whipped her with this instrument of tor ture till welts . were raised all over her breast and arms as large as her finger, with the blood here and there oozing out of her lacerated skin, lie then ordered her to bathe the wounds in salt water, and say nothing about it. The priest hud becu ar rested by tho authorities. The priest being a .sound and reliable democrat, of course tho party organs here ore very mum nbout the affair. We won der, however, that Lano's mulatto has not copied the article, changing the word Cath olic to " Methodist," and giving it some thing such a heading as this: " Anothor of the 8,000 signers turned up! Damna ble exhibition of black republican philan thropy! Diabolical outrage, on a woman by an infernal black republican abolitionist! A lovely female horribly mangled by a political parson," &c, Ac. As the whip ping hapiieued to be done by a democratic priest, however, theso faithful organ-grinders seem so impressed with the idea that it was probably done to " save the Union," that they dare not even mention it aT We are requested to state that Eld. A. V. MeCarty will preach in the Court-House in this city next Saturday at two o'clock, and also on Sunday fol lowing. I6T Washington Williams, who had been committed to jail in this city to an swer to charge of burning Caufield's build ing, was bailed out lust week, wheu he bor rowed one of Judge White's horses in the nvght and started for California. Officers axe now iu pursuit of him. Groanino. The X. Y. Herald, (ad. niln.) in ouo of its usual wise articles prog nosticating the future of political parties, thus reluctantly concedes the low estate into which tho slave-breeding democracy has been brought by tho policy of Buclmn au's Adiniuistratisn: " At the same tint, we must out overlook the fact that in coatequtuce of Uie treacherous and mutinous pruoeodings of party leaders and cliques in both houses of Congress during the late session, this regular democratic party has been reduced to that eiireinily of weakness which renders it doubt ful whether, this dsy, it could command a posi tits popular majority in any one Plate of all tba thirty-two which now compose the Union. " We have already ihown that, from all the ex isting facta and signs of the limes, the probabiliUes of tlis approaching elections for Uie neat Congress are decidedly in furor of an opposilioa majority." We think, ourself, that it is about time for the jicople to begin to look into the af fairs of the present dynasty, which even Toombs, an administration democrat, and John B. Iluekin, a Douglas democrat, both rcccutly declared was the most corrupt government on earth." When the X. Y. Herald sees from "the signs of the times aud existing fucts" " prob abilities" of a change of rulers, honest men onght to be encouraged to hoiie that under divine Providence tho fullness of the time has come tltut was allotted by Heaven for the shura democracy to so dcvclojtc itself before the American people that its very name would be odious to their children's children down to tho tenth generation. I3T We notice that few fields of wheat hove been cut in this valley the present har vest which are free from smut. In some fields full hulf of tho heads were smut. There is no excuse for raising smut in place of wheat while vitriol will cffectuully pre vent it. Wc hear furmers complaining about hard times and being too poor to take a pa per, while the poverty generally comes of mis management. We have always contended that it was just as easy to be rich as poor in fact we believe it is easier. Let us ci pher a litle and see. There is farmer Y in Yamhill who raised 500 bushels of smutty wheat this summer. Owing to the smut, be is able to get only 00 cents a bushel, which makes $450. Now this same 500 bushels would, if it had had no Btnut in it, have made by weight 520 bushels, which at $1,25 a bushel would have amounted to $050. The slovenly far mer upon examining bis books in the fall finds they stand thus in account with his farm: By 500 bus. smutty wheat sold at 00c $450 The thrifty farmer who lives adjoining and had the same amount of land in wheat finds his books stand thus: By 520 bushels of good wheat sold for $1,25, $050 Deducting cost of vitrioling seed, 7 leaves a balance of $043 This amounts to just $103 more than his neighbor received for the same- labor. The difference is that one applies his labor judi ciously and the other injudiciously. Now suppose that he beats his neighbor as much in applying his labor to raising stock, fruit, ic, lie will find that at a low calculation he realizes $300 a year more from his labor than his neighbor does, aud works no hard er, but lives a little better, besides spending considerable tune in reading. This extra $300 a year amounts in thirty years to the comfortable littlo sum of $9000, all of which he has made over and above what his neighbor has by using a little head work, and applying his labor judiciously. It's just as easy to be rich as to be poor. The new steamboat " Relief," built by Casscdy, Athey, Sturtcvant, O'Longh lin, and Singer, made her trial trip to Port hind last Saturday. She is a very neat, commodious boat, and in speed promises to exceed tho expectations of all. She has reduced the price of possnge to Portland to $1, and of freight to $3 per ton. She is manned by an obliging set of officers, and has a profitable, future before her. She crosses the Clackamas Rapids with ease, and will do so it is said with a foot less wa ter than now. Sho will no doubt prove a great relief" to tho patrons of this trade. Jfiy It was not long ago that Govern ment offered half a section of land as an in ducement to young people to marry. Some young men we believe even then failed to avail themselves of the benefit on account of the scarcity of ready mouey to pay the parson's fee. All difficulties of this kind are now obviated by a standing offer on the part of J. B. Bean, Esq., of Yamhill to tie the knot (provided he doesn't have to ride over forty miles) for two beef hides or four deer skins. Esq. B. only reserves two hours at dead of midnight for sleep. ne will cheerfully respond to all orders coming at any other hours, provided they are " accompouied by the hides." Accident. In coming up the Molulia at Pendleton's, eight miles south of this, tho team of Asa Simmons, of Howell Prai rie, became frightened and backed the wag on over the bank, precipitating the whole team and load down an almost perpendicu lar declivity of some tliirty feet, breaking the neck of a valuable mare and injuring the wagon somewhat. The loading con sisted of summer apples. IS- The Sentinel says that all the pris oners, five in number, succeeded in digging out of the jail at Jacksonville on the 2d inst with " no other instruments than an old broken broomstick." The wall was stone and some three feet thick. That be ing the fact, the woman's weapon must take higher rank among implements. Tho op eratives who used it must have been wo man's HVujAt men. .. , Arrival or tub Mail. The U. S. mail steamer Columbia reached Portland lost Thursday. We aro indebted to Dr. gteele, agent of Wells, Fargo & Co., for express matter. Tin Atlantic Tkleurapii. The tel egraph fleet had been heard from. Cupt. Cummings, of the ship Alice Muuroe, w hich reached Boston July 10, report that June 27 in lat. 52 6' X., long. 33 15' W., he saw the Xingnra and Gorgon of the tele graphic squadron, lying still. It seems thut the squadron had exerieiiced very bud weather since they left jiort. Eolus, great ly enraged at such an invasion of Neptune's dominions, hud kicked up a row quite simi lar to the one that came so near swamping the fleet of Eueas and his brother Trojaus. Such was the force of tho storm that the Agamemnon was so, badly strained that the Captain thinks ho could not have kept her afloat two hours longer if the storm had not subsided. The American eteamers stood tho gnle well. The sqnudron had fi nally reached the middle of the ocean in 16 duys, and made two unsuccessful attempts to lay the cable. On the second attempt they succeeded in laying about forty miles, keeping up telegraphic communication ev ery fifteen minutes. The communication suddenly ceased Sunday morning, June 27, showing that -the cable had parted. The Niagara immediately returned to tho start ing point and was waiting tho return of the Agamemnon iu order to splice aud and make another effort. It was conjec tured on board the Niagara,' tho American steamer, that tho breuk was caused by a kink in the wire on the Agamemnon, the British steamer, produced by the shuffling about of the coil during the gulc. The offi cers on board the Niagara were in hopes that they would succeed in laying the cable yet. It is however doubtful about their success this time. That American and Eng lish enterprise will yet overcome all obstacles and complete this stupendous undertaking, we have no doubt. Utah. The Pcaco Commissioners sent to Salt Luke by the President have had a conference with Brigham and satisfactorily settled all the difficulties. Brigham and the leaders of the church aro to receive a full pardon for all their past "treason," and the U. S. Army is to be permitted to cuter Salt Lake City, aud tho federal officers are to be permitted to enter upon their da- tics without molestation, and we presunv in addition to this the Mormons are to vo the democratic ticket for President wh ever Utah is admitted into the Union, tST The War Department at Washing ton City has ordered six companies tot be sent to Oregon immediately to reiufolce Col.

Quitman, member of Congress from Mississippi, and Chairman of the com mittee on millitary affairs, to which post he was appointed by Speaker Banks, died at his residence near Natchez July 17. JST Gen. J. II. Lane, who was charged with the murder of Jenkins at Lawrence, Kansas, was discharged Juue 80th. The decision of the Court was this: " In making out a cose against the defendant, it was necessary, first, to prove that a murder had been committed ; and, secondly, by Gen. Lane. The prosecution had failed to establish the first. Tho Court were unanimously of the opinion that no murder had been committed ; and, aa the Ter ritory having failed to establish this primary fact, the only charge contained in the affidavit, the de fendant, Gen. Lnue, was accordingly discharged." This announcemeut caused loud and general tamping of feet among the crowd, and other de monstrations of applause, which lasted until check ed by the Court, Wm. T. Porter, editor of Torter's Spirit of tho Times, died in N. Y. city July 19. SST The democratic State convention which met at Sacramento, Col.,' Aug. 4th, split. The Douglas-Broderick wing retired in disgust, when the Administration dirt enters nominated Jos. Baldwin of San Francisco for Judge of tho Supreme Court, and A. R. Meloney of .Contra Costa for Comptroller. Dr. Evans and Mr. Warner have just returned from a flying visit to Mount Hood. They rode their horses a good ways np the mountain, and, although they lacked a good deal of reaching tho apex, Mr. Waruer.thinks they were as high as anybody ever went before. We presume thnt is about the fact. Fire. Last Saturday night at about nine o'clock a building in the rear of Gib son's saloon was discovered to be on fire. It was partially filled with straw, as it had been used for an ice house. A few buckets of water extinguished the flames, although the engine was on the ground in an incredi ble short space of time. Some suppose tho fire was produced by spontaneous combus tion, some that it was the work of an incendi ary, while others think that some drunken fel low must have gone in there for repose " with a pipe lit.". , ' tar Since the fire at Gibson's lost Sat urday night, our citizens have become un usually active in circulating subscription pa pers for means to make reservoirs on the corners for supplying the engine. The money raised already we are glad to learn ia sufficient for the purpose. I6T The bowel complaint has been quite prevalent among small dhiidren of late, and has proved futul in several instances. Democratic Literature. We clip the following lucid ' excerpt' from the Sentinel, a leading democratic journal of Oregon. The man who could read it Without being moved to tears, would certainly go to sleep during a lecture from Confucius, or sul) mit to pe put through by the 1 hard'.

The California organs scold because the organ of their Doctor reads such men as Adair out of the dirt-eating party, while the Doctor's organ here pitches into them for calling the ' na tionals' ' one wing of the democracy.' It insists that the Standard and Oregonian are not democratic papers, while the Cali fornia organs, fully impressed with the growing scarcity of 'democratic' timber for the raft of 1800, seem Inclined to work them in somewhere, if ' aft' of the cabin. ' Soft' timber may answer for that locality. Shot. Charles McLelland was killed last Monday in a store at the mouth of Suudy in Multnomuh county, by a shot from a pistol in the hands of Ephraim Cox. McLelland aud Cox have long been at outs for very palpable reasons. Cox avers that McLcllund jumped his land claim, and then laid claim to his wife. McLelland has caused Cox much trouble and expense by his efforts to establish a claim to land claimed by Cox in the Land Office in this city, no has also caused him great anxi ety by a supposed interference with his do mestic matters. The old quarrel was re vived by the parties upon meeting last Monday, and, after high words ou both sides, Cox drew a revolver and shot his en emy through the heart. We have been ac quainted with Mr. Cox for years, and have always regarded him as a quiet and peacea ble man, whom no provocation would per haps cause to take life. Mortality.

Should the Atlantic Telegraph be successfully completed, Europe, Asia, Afri ca, and America, will be brought into elec tric communication with each other, and a remarkable progress will have been made toward the civilized unity of the human race. From Newfoundland there is tele graphic communication with New Orleans, distant 3,710 miles following the coarse of the wire, ana when the Atlantic cable is laid, direct communication can be obtained with Constantinople, uniting the four continents. It is calculated that a message leaving; the Turkish capital at 2 o'clock, say on Mon day afternoon will reach New Orleans at 6 o'clock the some evening. The first mes sage from Constantinople direct left on Sunday evening, May 2, 11.45, and arrived in London at 8.57 in the evening of the tame day, London time, beating the sun nearly three hours.

Wo re-publish below, aa of peculiar Interest at tho present time, a synopsis of a letter written by Dun icl Webster in 1843, to Edward Everett, then American Minister to England, and which refers fully to tho question of right of search, and right of visit, now so much agitated, It Will be seen that Mr, Web ster makes no distinction whatever between tho two, but luyi down the broad American principles of their denial fully and freely. The arguments of Mr. Webster are as for cible tc-day as they were fifteen years since, and these will be enforced by the hearts and hands of the whole American people. Ap pended is the letter: DanaTHKNT or State, J Washinuton, March 38, 1813. j An eminent member of the House of Commons thus states tlieHritinh claim, and his statement if acquiesced in and adopted by the firat Ministry of the Crown i " The claim of this country is fur the right of our cruisers to ascertain whether a merchant ves sel la justly entitled to the protection of the flag which she may happen to have hoisted, such ves sel being in circumstances which rendered her lia ble to the suspicion, firat that she was not entitled to the pioteclion of Uie flag and, secondly, if not i milled to it, she was, either under tho laws of nations or the provisions ef treaties, subject to the supervision and control of our cruisers." As we understand the general and settled rules of publio law in respect to ships of war sailing un der the authority of their Government, " to arrest pirate aud other publio offenders," there is no rea son wby they may not approach any vessel de scried at sea for the purpose of ascertaining their real characters. Such a right of approach seems indispensable for the fair and discreet exercise of their authority) and the use of it cannot be justly deemed indicative of any design to insult or injure those they approach, or to impede them in their lawful commerce. On the other hand, it is as clear that no ihip it, under tuck circunutanetu bound to lit by, or wait the approach of any othtr ikip. She is at full liberty to pursue her voyage in her own way, and to use all necessaiy precau tions to avoid any suspected sinister enterprise or hostile attack. Her right to the free us of the ocean is as perfect as that of any other ship. An entire equality is presumed to exist. She may use any precautions directed by the prudence or fears of her officers, either a to delay, or Uie progress or course of her voyage. It appears to the government of the United Slates that the view of this whole aubjeel which i the most naturally taken, is also, the most legal, and most in analogy with other cases, British cruisers hare a right to detain British merchant ment for certain purposes ; and they have a right, acquired by treaty, to detain merchant vessels of several other nations, for the same purposes. But they have no right at all to detain an American merchant vcsmI. This, Lord Aberdeen admits in the fullest manner. Any detention of sn Ameri can vessel, by a British cruiser, is, therefore, a wrong a trrspaw ; although it may bo done under the belief that she was a British vessel, or that she belonged to a nation which had conceded the right of such detention to the British cruisers, and the tresspass, therefore, an Involuntary tresspass. The government of the United States ha fre quently made known Its opinion, which it now re peats, that the practice of detaining American ves sels, though subject to just compensation, if such detention afterwurd turn out to have been without good cause, however guarded by instructions, or however cautiously exercised, necccssarily leads to serious incouTtuicuce and injur-. These deten tions, too, frequently irritate individuals, cause warm blooJ, and produce nothing but ill effects on Uie amicable relations existing between the countries. We wish, therefore, to put an end to them, and to avoid all occas'ons for their recur rence. The government of Uie United States, while it has uot conceded a mutual right of visit or search, as has been done by the parties to the quintuple treaty of December, 1841, dote not admit that, by the lata and practice of nation, there it any tuch thing at a right of titit, dittinguithed by well kntvn rultt and definition! from the right of ttarch. It does not admit that visit of Ameri can merchant vessels by BriUnh cruisers is founded on any right, notwithstanding the cruiser may sup pose such vessels to be British, Brazilian, or Por tuguese. At the same time, the government of the Uni ted Stales fully admits that its flag can give no im munity to pirates, nor to any other than to regu larly documented Amcricau vessels. It was upon this view of Uie whole cuse, and with a firm con viction of the tiuth of these sentiments, that it cheerfully assumed the duties contained in the treaty of Washington ; in the hope that thereby cause of difficulty and of difference might be alto gether removed, and that the two powers might be enabled to act concurrently, cordially, and effect ually for the suppression of troffio which both regarded aa a reproach upon the civilization of the age, and at war with every principle of humanity aud every Christian sentiment.
