How many pleasant associations tlmtcr
around Ilia hallowed namo of mother!
Everything pure and holy seems entwined
amaiul tlio very word. Years may have
pissed fiiiicc she wont to rest; tall grars
tony lie growing on licr grave; yet with re
rerence we could cherish Iter memory. It
serins luit yesterday tlmt we were children
together, with a mother to counsel us and
guide us in the pnth of duty. Hut sho in
gone, nnd we must Gn'sli our journey with
out her iniil(i to glnddcn our pathway.
To whom crni we look up with cudi con
fuleiict T To whom can wc go with nil our
trial and troubles? There is a vacancy
wlikli can never he filled. We mny lose
ntlii-r friends, nml tho los he innde up to

on earth at which nni ls would weep, it id
a gronp of little ones just bereft of n moth
er's cure. Sec them ns they gather nt
night nrouml the fireside, where they were
wnnt to receive their good-tiitfht kiss from
lur. Who can fill that mother's place?
If spirits nro permitted to hold communion

will watcli over her little ones she has left
Uhind. Iler Inst prayer on enrth is for
the welfare of her children, nnd with what
hitter anguudi does sho hid them tho last
farewell, ns her spirit is nbout to take its
flight into the untried world. Then, for
the sake of her who is gone, be kind to the
motherless little onesl "For a mother
lost in childhood, grieves the heart from
day to day."
Or, even if her days bo prolonged till
the ' evening of life,' how hard it is then to
give hep up. Thntdcnr form, once erect,
is now bent towards the grave, her huir is
silvered over with age, her step is faltering,
still wo can hardly believe her growing-old
or think wo can ever part with her. But
ere wo art awaro of it, she has gono for
ever from us. Yes! those dear hands ore
folded peacefully ocross her breast; those
eyes, whose delight it was to gaze nt the flow
ers the loved so well, nro closed in death.
And now, as we visit the sacred monnd,
where rcposo the remains of a dear mother,
rosy we try to follow in her footsteps, to
be guided by her example; we may then
rest assured that when w6 are dono with

At about II o'clork Sunday morning,

recognized the Ilixhnp, and rxpreksed Ins

The Bishop continued:

" No, air; when I do, I will commnni

" Do you think he ii fully possessed of

" I do not know; n'rhnp you hud better

Tho Bishop then remarked to Mr.
Rhode, " lie is undoubtedly In his right

During the dny (Sunday), Mr. Donglas
seemed to he much better, nnd strong hopes
wero entertained of h s recovery; ho slept
most ol the day, nnd in tho evening seemed
much refreshed. Mm. Douglas and Mr.
Rhodes remained with him during the

" Nearly every one of them."

Mr. Douglas " Ao, 1 tlmiiK you."
Soon ufter this, about 5 o'clock, ho de
sired to have his position in bed changed,
the blinds opened, nnd the windows raised.
Mr. Rhodes lifted linn lo an easier posture,
wh'Tu he could look out upon tho open
street, and drink in the fresh morning air.
For a few moments he seemed to gain new
life. Then he began to sink away, his
eyes partially closed, and, in slow and
measured cadence, witn cousideraoio pause
between each accent, he uttered:
" Death! Death! Death!"
After this, he seemed to revive slightly,
nnd Mr. Rhodes asked him if he had any
messngo to send to his mother, or sister
Surah, or his boys, ' Bobby' and ' Stcvie,'
to which he made no reply, evidently not
understanding the question. Mrs. Dong
las then placed her arms around his neck,
" Mv denr, do you know Cousin Dan?"
" Yes," he replied.
" Your boys. Bobby end Stevie, nnd

" Tell them to obey the laws and sup

At about 5 o'clock, Dr. Miller came
into tho room, nnd, noticing the open shut
ters nnd windows, inquired:
" Why have you nil these windows
raised, and so much light?"
Judge Douglas replied:
"So that wo can have fresh air."
At Jiidcc Donelas's request, Mr. Rhodes
changed tho dying man's position again in
the bed, for tho last lime. He now lay
rather down in tho middlo of the bed, upon
his left side, his head slightly bent forward
nnd off tho pillow. His wife sat beside
him, holding his right hand in both of hers,
nnd leaning tenderly over him, sobbing.
Mr. Rhodes remarked to .Mrs. jjougins:
" I'm nfraid he does not lie comfortable."
iie is very comfortable."
These were his Inst intelligible words.
From 5 o'clock he was speechless, but evi
dently retained his consciousness. W hen,
a few moments before his death, his wife
leaned lovii.gly over him and sobbingly
asked, " Husband, do you know me? will
you kiss me?" he raised his eyes and smiled,
and, thongh too weak to speak, the move
ments of the muscles of his mouth evinced
that he was making almost a dying strug
gle to comply with her request.
n; iloath was calm and peaceful. A
few faint breaths after 9 o'clock; a rattling
of his throat, a short, quick, convulsive
shudder, and Stephen A. Douglas had
passed from time into eternity. mcaro
nsr- Th firnt renorts of how the la
mented Ellsworth came to his death were
incorrect. Jackson did not shoot him in
i.. k,-L- n hn arns descending the stairs,
but discharged his gun full at the front of
lose whom he considered enemies, ana
hen he knew instant death to himself
must follow. A Washington dispatch says
he was ol a very impulsive temperament,

OREGON CITY, OREGON, AUGUST 17, 1861.
Tk Ballle at Carthage
The Rrpulliean has translated from the
Anulger Col. Sigel'a official report of the
battle of Carthage. In that report he
states his killed nt 13, and wounded at 81
The troops under his command were nine
companies of the 3J Regiment, 650
men, nnd seven companies of Sth Reel
meut, 400 men; alto two batteries of four
field pieces. 1 he enemy was descried on
the evening of July 7th. At that time
Sigel was near Spring river, southwest of
Carthago. Jackson was nine miles on,
with, according to Sig'I's estimate, 4,000
men. Nine miles north of Carthage, be
yond Dry Fork Creek, bo found Jackson's
men in array, their front presenting three
regiments, deployed in line, tho wings (two
regiments) being cavalry; centre composed
of infantry, cavalry and two field pieces.
Other pieces wero posted at the wings.
2500 men wero In view.
Sigcl's troops wero formed thus: On the
left, the Scond Buttalion of the Third Re
giment, under command of Maj. Bischoff,
in solid column, with four cannon. In the
centre, tho Fifth regiment in two separate
Battalions- under Col. Salomon and Lieut.
Col. Wolff. On tho right, three cannon
under command of Capt. Kssig, supported
by tho First Battalion, Third Regiment,
under Lieut. Col. Unsscndeubel.
Maj. Bischoff then opened firo from
seven Held pieces. This was promptly re
lumed. Shortly after, bigel perceived
movements which wero intended to out
flank him. Efforts wero made to counter
act theso movements.
A critical moment arrived when, to
qnoto the dispaich, Cnpt. Willi ins, com
mander of ono of our two bntteries, de
clared that he could not odvnnco for want
of ammunition. No timo wns to bo lost,
as part of our troops wero already engaged
with tho liostilo cavalry nt tho extreme
right nml left, and as it seemed to bo of
very doubtful expediency to advance with
the remainder without duo support of ar
tillery. Tho moral effect which the hostile
cavalry made in our rear could not be de
nied, ulthough tho real danger was not
great. The threatening loss of our entire
haggngo was another consideration not to
be overlooked. I, therefore, with great
reluctance, ordered part of the detachment
nt Dry Fork Creek back, while Lieut. Col.
Ilnssendeuliel, with tho lirst uiiltnlinn ol
the Third regiment, under Lieut. Col. Wolf,
followed by four cannon of Wilken's bat
tery, proceeded to tho baggage train in
order to protect it against tho meditated
The enemy followed to Dry Fork and
there wero resisted two hours, causing him
heavy loss, meantime he had with his cav
alry completely surrounded Siegcl. One
of their forts was ut Buck Branch, over
which Sirgel had to pass. Siegcl then
disposed his troops In a way to guard a
rear attack and to torco a passage across
Buck Branch in front. All succeeded.
Tho enemy were routed from their position
in front ana the creek was crossed, biegei
gained some heights overlooking Cnrthiigc
from tho north. Hero the enemy again
took position and nnnoyed Siegel's com
mand incessantly. Siegel continued the
retreat to Snrcoxic, being relieved from
nttack about two miles southeast of Car
thage. Siegcl thinks from all accounts
that the enemy's loss was thrco or four
Tho persistency of tho nttack agnim-t
such odds of arms and discipline shows
souraee on the part of the Missouri troops.
These troops no doubt stood np desperately
against a long sustained Gre from well di
rected artillery, (Siegels corps being oy
far tho best commanded among tho U. S.
volunteers in Missouri.) I enn well believe
that their losses must havo been much
larger than their opponents'."

Emerson Ethcritlge, of Tennessee, who
has been elected Clerk of tho House, stands
prominent before the country on account
of his strong and earnest opposition to dis
union, although living in a disunion Stnto.
IIo was first chosen to tho House in 18S3,
having no opponent. His first session wm
rendered memorable by the passage of the
Nebraska Bill, which ho opposed with un
compromising energy. IIo was ono of tho
nine members in nil from the slave States
who opposed that Act, and one of the only
i . i . .i n.
threo re-elected to tho ensuing Congress.
Ho carried his district, notwithstanding
many branded him ns a traitor to the
South, by 7,952 votes to 7,894. The next
timo ho was defeated J. D. C. Arikins,
(Dcm.) beating him by 8,004 to 8,44.
In 1859 tho tables wero again turned,
Ethcridgo beating Adkins by seven majori
ty. No district was ever more closely di
vided, or more determinedly contested than
this one, throughout the last right years,
nnd the fact that he has uniformly run
ahead of his party, nnd been twico elected

lie went to Washington a few weeks since,
on belmlf of tho persecuted Unionists in
Western Tennessee, with no thought of
being a candidate for any office whatever,
nnd his election to the clerkship was a vol
nntary tribute to his worth. Etheridge is
a widower, residing near Dresden, Weak
ley connty, in the heart of Western Ten
nessee, where treason is the order of the
day. The New York 7i'4un says:
It is a noteworthy fact that while three
fourths of the members of the present
House were supporters of Lincoln and
Hamlin, the only candidates for Clerk were
Etheridge, who supported Uell and fcver-
ett, and Forney
who supported Douglas .
and Johnson. Both, however are most
onq.ialifil in their devotion to the Union,
and in favor of dealing with treason as
trVason, and we presume neither grealIr ;

room for the closing' paragraph of this ad
" Could my voice reach every dwelling
in Kentucky, I could implore Its Inmates-,
if they would not havo rivera of their pros
perity shrink away, ai do unfed streams
beneath the summer heals to roue them
si lvea from their lethargy, and fly to tha
rescuo of their country before it la everlast
ingly too late. Man should appeal to
man, and neighborhood to neighborhood,
until the electric Ores of patriotism sbull
flash from heart to heart In one unbroken
current throughout the land. It is a time
in which the workshop, tha office, tho
counting house, and the field may well La
abandoned for the solemn duty tlmt it up
on us, for all these to la will but bring trea
sure, not for ourselves, but for tho spoiler,
if this revolution is not arrested. We ore
all, with onr every earthly Interest, era
burked lo mid ocean on tho same common
deck. The howl of the storm is in onr
.a a . l i-
curs, and the ngiitnings na giure is
pninting hell on the sky," nnd while the
noble ship pitches and rills under tho lash
ing of the wares, the cry is heard that she
has sprung a leak at many points, and that
tho rushing waters are mounting rapidly in
Iho hold. Tho man, who, in such an hour,
will not work nt tho pumps, Is cither a
manic or a monster."

Ni w York, July 23. A spectator of
the battle nt Hull Kun says that tho sin
gle cause of the panic was a charge by a
Inrgo body of cavalry nmong the teamsters
and straggling soldiers who wero In the
rear of our maiu force, between the linn
and Centreville. When Gen. McDowell
found that his rrserro whs on the retreat it
was too late to counteract the mistake,
and he commanded the main body to full
back, which It did quietly and in good or
der. The men, who had been fighting nil
dny without water nnd food, wero in n
stntn of complete exhaustion.
Tho Michigan regiment nt ono timo
marched lip to one of the heaviest of thn
rebel bnlturics, which had been scvernl
times unsuccessfully charged by the New
York Zouaves. They wero subjected to a
terrible (Ire by nrlillery nnd rifles. They,
ns well ns tho Zouaves, were without sup
port, nnd after thren ineffectual attempts
wero compelled to iibar.don tho effort to
tnko tho buttery. In the fight, Col. Wil
cox, who is reported wounded and taken
prisoner, wns reported, killed. The total
number killed of tho regiment Is estimated
nt forty. It is Iho opjjplon of uearly all
the officers that the enemy's loss is nearly
twice ns great as ours.

There is no doubt from the reorts of

that 80 or 40 will cover tho killed, nnd

It lost ull the caissons and equipments 0
pieces nnd 40 horses; 0 men killed and 7
wounded. All the guns wero thoroughly
disabled before they wero nbnndoned.
