Mr. Stewart, a sectional member of Con
iress, stated In t sjieech, Dec. 12, 1859,
that In caw the Republican elected Pres
ident fn I860, California and Oregon would
join the South In diking steps to diwolre
the Union. We presume Jo Iane told
Stewart io. Lane hat shown himself the
mint smile tool of the disunion laiuaii
dcri that miarejireirf'iiU anjr free State in
Congress. Ho packed a challenge for
Hull Ilrooks to Hurling he aiwiat 1
In Washington City, we are told, with none
lut Southera Democrat! and he told ua
at LafaycHo last spring with bit own mouth
that it bad auld out the Democracy of Or
rgon "or ten yari" to the South, on con
dition that the South should voto for the
admission of Oregon into the Union. Of
course, if the South goes out of the Union.
Oregon la boaml by Jo Lane's 4 bill of (tale'
to go with her, aud serve her fur Un yean,
Xow we haven't the least objection to Jo
Lanc'a giving a bill of vale of Ilibben, or
even of Delusion, but when disunion trai
tor come here claiming Oregon under
Lane'i bill of eale, we will turn them over
Debi'ion and Slater under the 'fugitive
alare law. If they don't leave then, we
will bang them higher than Old Drown.

Iters, under the Impression probably that
the thing is rather too hot to be trusted in
the mail-bugs. On the other hand, the
ex-organ complains that certain postmas

I hey nave both lost money sent by mail,
and the medium' is out of pocket several
nice little sums sent with names of ' new
subscribers.' Delusion thinks a 'secret
muil agent' would be of advantage.
Now this idea of having honest post-
niastrra under a Democratic dynasty, which
appoints men to office merely for dirty work
done for the party, and not with any refer
ence to qualifications, Is all a delusion. As
long as it ' pays why not expect Demo
cratic olhcinle to steal money? We advise
De'usion not to be In a hurry to InaVurate
a system or secret espionngc to detect Dom
ocrutie villuiny. The first Republican ad
.minihtrntion will cure the evil by turning
evrry driven nigyer out of pfice in Ore;on,
and putting honest men in their pluc 's.
We want uo office, but for the good of the
country we should like to be the Postal
Agent for a few weeks, just to show the
sectional fanatics whut might be dono by
putting a national Republican at the helni.
We assure Delusion tint t if we art appoint
ed, we will muko the contruetois and post
masters delirer all the mail in season, or cat

Some Republicans fear that Delusion Is

jACKsoKvn.i.r, Jan., 6th, 18C0
Ed. A si. i s: As I have been a careful
and constant reader of the Argus for lev
eral months past, and seeing no correspon
dence Irom the " Sunny South," I take
upon myself the responsibility of dropping
few items of truth and note, which are fully
worth the tn-rusul of your many reudcrs,
The nio4 glaring thing that presents
itself to my notice is the rich discoveries of
quartz mines in this vicinity within the last
three months, which are, no doubt, the
richest quartz specimens ever discovered on
the coast, and I might with truth say the
most siirpnuingly and extensively rich
ever discovered on the globe. Of these
discoveries, I will mention first one on the
left band fork of Jackson Creek, ucur Fur
mer's Flut, which was discovered by Clias,
Hicks, near two months since, aud bss
proven so fur as worked, to be vastly rich
Suid Hicks has tuken out about $3,000 by
the slow processor a bund-uiortnr, since he
made the first discovery, aud is now going
down on the lesd. He finds it to be good
paying quartz as he gets down, but not so
good as it wss on the surface.
There is an excitement In our midst at
this time, of a great quartz discovery on
Rogue river, near a place known as Big
Bar, ono mile above Col. T'Vault's farm,
the news of which spreads like fire to dry
grass, j-.vcry rutin who coula pos ibly
leave bis business bus gone to see mid get
few specimens. To-day the news came
into town that they bad found it much rich
er than ever.
By the way, I wilt snr that I have been
down on a propecting tour in that vicinity,
nd just returned yesterday. I was in coin
any with four brother miners. We vis
ited the above mentioned quartz lead, und
found it to be fully as good as represented,
and one of the most singular places ever
discovered since man enmo iuto cxistnnco.
ii is sitimieu near me summit or a very
high mountain, which runs np similar in
shape to a poorly put np liny cock. They
find a good many pieces of quartz, promis
cuously scuttcrcd along the side of a small
gulch, which are exceedingly rich. They
dig the surface of the earth to the depth of
rrcm two to four feet and Bud loose quartz
in abundance, which is extensively impreg
nated with gold
month of Okinagiu, ia vorlously estimated
at from 75, to 125 uiilca; thence to Sum!
kameen, 80 miles. The mines are near the
Northern boundary lino. In conclusion, if
I were unemployed, I should go to the
mines; but I would not advise any one to
leave a bird In baud, if it is worth holding
ou to, to chusa a bird in the bush. Thomp
son & Co. are going to build a new, and
lurger boat, for this route. I believe the
contract has been given. In baste, yours,

the Union, and with "slight variations''
bus sold them iu the Argus us his own,
without saying ' boo' about Sluter being the

' good keeping with the practices of the
rascals who sell ' woodou nutmegs.' Wo
think, with tho Union, tbut tho theft can
not be too severely condemned. The vil
luiii that would steal one or Slater's edito
rinls, would steal a covered button from the
worn-out cout-Qaji of a blind nigger. The
crime is aggra voted by the tale of these ed
itorials ufter the theft. Slater is right in
snying that the act is in good keeping with
the selliug of ' wooden nutmegs.' The only
palliutiou we can see to such au act as
stealing and selling editorials from the Un
ion, or Delusion's ' medium,' is the nccora
panying the papers containing them with
wooden nutmegs.' It gives tho stulo fa
