Hlltlt AH FOIt SALMON !
BY MAX 1KWII1.
I looked to the north and I looked to the south,
And I saw the children of mammon ;
With boots run down and down in the mouth,
They were on their way up to Salmon.
Then save your money, boys, to pay your way thro'
Two to oue on Salmon against L'amboo;
Don't be hasty and got into a fever,
r'or you'll all make a fortune up ut Salmon river.
AVc left Calafornia with a hundred pound pack,
Well provided agamst famine ;
We took a drink of vinegar and started on the track,
Fur it's a hard road to travel up to saliuou.
We traveled through Rogue river without any treat
Till wo got to the (.'auyonvillo fountain.
Then the L'mpqua county stuck to our feet,
lint we left it on the Uulapooia mountain.
At camp that night we all climed a tree
Tu look for the land uf promise,
But away to the north as fur us we could sec,
There was nothing but the liver Long Thomas.
The LongTom country is the best ever found,
For frogs and young ulligutors ;
After the hogs have routed up the ground,
The farmers plant their "potaters."
asked a Longtomer to sell me a " hoss,"
And take his nay next summer ;
He called me a Federal, and looking very cross,
Said "git you t'ulifuruy bummer."
I told him then 1 was only in jest,
I didn't want to take his puny.
Fur be d nee 1 his horse to pay the war tax,
And to carry the mail for Tony.
We begin this week tho publication of a series
of data relating tu the rebellion of the Southern

reputation, for ten years past, 0f one of tho best

Tho collego has received an endowment from
many friends of education in the East. During
two years past; president Marsh labored to se

genuine college are laid among us. hue, as
seen in tho advertisement, it euables the instruct

and from what is known of them, there can be
no doubt that students will bo faitfully taught m

wish to secure an opportunity for the education

President Marsh upon the subject. The readers

Eugene City, Oregon, March 28, 1802. .
Axotiier Fcdob. Tho rebel Congress has
passed a resolution that they will fight till they
have lost the last man and expended the Inst
Confederate bond. What they will do then the
report does not go on to state. They hung out
a black flag at Fort Donelson, as a pledge that
fii'htins was to be done there down to the " last
man," but when we got down to about twenty
thousmd of that individual, a part of them sur.
rendered unconditionally, and the balance took
to the woods, carrying the " last man" with
them, it is supposed. At any rate he was not
discovered in the fort. Shatta Courier.
The total amount of wheat and corn received
in Chicago, in 1861 was equivalent to 01,027,000
Tho batteries of abuse w hich were openoj up
on tho Administration at occasional intervals
-during tho war, both by leading opposition ora
tors and tho corrupt presses in their employ,
have been completely silenced by tho straight
forward proceedings of tho young commander-in-chief,
w ho has proved himself to bo possessed
of the quality, so rare in men of elevated rank,
of listening patiently to tho sarcasms and malici
ous insinuations of his foes. In all the operations
of the campaigu under his supervision, tho most
admirable consistency lias been cviiced, and
plans have been carried toward their IjV.imate
conclusion unflinchingly, unfalteringly. All the
early clemency of tho Government and its for
bearance were thrown uway ; every overture
which it went out of its way for tho purpose of
promoting conciliation and healing tho breach
between tho two sections, wero contemptuously
rejected ; tho conquest of tho North and the
laying in ashes of its principal cities was threat
ened, und tho most revolting uttrocities perpetra
ted, not merely on prisoners, but on even the
wounded on the field of battle. It became soon
apparent that a vigorous prosecution of hostilities
was tho only feasable method of bringing the
war to a clo-e. Then, when under any but a
most skilful government, it would have been too
lato to remedy tho disasters which had already
befallen tho patriot cause, it was found that our
armies and public bodies, tho halls of legislation,
the very circles of tho most select society iu the
land, were still full of enemies to the Union, who
by the aid of spies and mercenaries, contrived
to make each project miscarry. An energetic
series of measures was instituted, which effectu
ally eradicated tho treasonable element from all
branches of tho service, has convinced tho world
that at length tho administration was iu earnest.
To a nervous and quick moving raco like our
own, tho progress of the campaign seemed tedi
ous and protracted, but now, looking back upon
tho few mouths that have elapsed siuco its com
mencement, wo can only wonder that results so
wonderful have been accomplished in so brief a
space. Wo will venture the assertion that Na
poleon, notwithstanding tho enormous bodies of
men whom his transcendent military genius en
abled him to bring into the field at one time,
never fought so hard a campaign, or which could
have more severely taxed ull tho resources of
which ho was master. An tinny of moro than
half a million souls has been recruited, disciplined
and moved into tho field within less than a year;
and although an empty treasury was the princi
pal legacy left to the country by tho preceding
government, means wero at once raised for the
furnishing of military anna and supplies, and
for the creation of a commissariat more exten
sive than tho modern world has yet witnessed.
Even tho most rabid and rampant of tho seces
sion journals at length acknowledge the superior
ity of our armies and of tho general plan of the
war, and have fallen of late, into a sort of fashion
of praising tho management of the forces of the
Union and decrying their own which latter
have been characterized bv amastc;-y inactivity
that has oeen highly favornblo to tho former.

English Opiaiou of Mason nntl Slidcll.
Tho following is an nrticlo from tho London
Times, of Jan. 11 :
A turn of tho wheel which the American Cabi
net has managed to mako aa sudden as possible,
brings us a new question. Tho four Anieri.au
gentlemen who have got us into our lato difficulty
and cost us probably a million apiece, w ill soon
be in one ot our ports.
. How, then are we to receive thefco illustrious
visitors. Of course they will be stared nt, nnd
followed and photographed, and made tho subject
of paragraphs. There is no help for that. Mr"
Thomas Sayers cannot walk the street with a
friend, or ask tho Mayor for permission to put
up a booth in a market place, but tho crowd im
mediately conclude the rough, hard-vizaged, ill
favored pair to bo tlio Confederate Commi-isioii-ers,
Messrs. Mason and Slidcll, with their two
secretaries, l hough not so handsome and graceful
as their countryman Blondm, would certainly
fill tho Crystal Palace, if they proposed to ad
drcss the visitors there on tho merits f their
cause. But for the benefit of tho discriminating,
for tho guidance- of the minority that prefers at
least a respectable idol, and that does not wish
to throw away its confidence and opplaiisc, we
may us well observe that .Messrs. Mason and
Slidcll are about the nio-.t worthless booty it
would bo possible to extract from tho jaws of tho
American Lion. They have Ions been known
as tho blind and habitual haters and revilers of
this country. They have done more than any
other men to get up the insane prejudice against
England which disgraces the morality and disor
ders tho policy of tho Union. The hatred of this
country has been their stock in trade. Ou this
they have earned their political livelihood and
won their position, just as there are others w ho
pander to the lowest passions of humanity. A
dilliccnt use of this bad capital has made them
what they are, and raised them to the rank of
Commissioners. It is through their lite-long Ha
tred and abuse of England that they come here
in their present conspicuous capacity. Tho na
tion under .whose flag thoy sought a safo passage
across the Atlantic the nation that has now res.
cued them with all her might from the certainty
of a dunjeon and the chances of retaliatory mur
dcr, is that against w hi. h they havo always done
their best to exasperate their countrymen. Had
they perished in the cell or on the scaflold amid
tho triumphant yells of the multitude, memory
would have suggested that their own bitter ti
rades had raised the storm, and that their death
was only the natural and logical conclusion of
their own calumnies and sophistries.

Comparative Ukiox and Rebel Victories.
Tho United States, while getting iu readiness to
crush out rebellion, have achieved the following
victories in 1S01, giving the Confederates tho
battles of Wilson Creek, Belmont and Sumter :
June 2d, Phillippa ; Juno 17th, Boonvillo ;
July 5th, Brier Forks (Sigel's victory ); July
13th, Carrick'a Ford ; August 28th, JIatteras
Forts ; September 10th, rout of Floyd, Gauley's
Bridge ; October 5th, second defeat of rebels at
llatteras ; October 8th, Santa Rosa Island ; Oct.
11th repulso ut Southwest Pass; Oct. 25th,
charge of Fremont's guard ; Oct. 27th, Romney
(Kelley wounded) ; Nov. 7th, Port Royal ; Dec.
13th, Camp Alleghany, Va. ; Dec. 18th, 1,300
rebels captured by Popo in Missouri ; Deo. lSUi,
In 1802 tho Union troops gained tho annexed
Second rebel repuNo at Santa Rosa ; Humph
rey Marshall's rout ; capture of rebel batteries
in South Carolina; Mill Spring (Zollicofl'er killed);
Fort Henry ; Roauoko Island ; Fort Donelson.
The rebel victories in 1801 were as follows
April 12th, Sumter ; June 10th, Big Bethel ;
July 21st, Bull Run ; September 20th, Lexing
ton ; October 25th, massacre of Ball's Blull";
Nov. 7th, Belmont (doubtful) ; Wilson's Creek
In 1802, none.
So we see the Union victories arc twonty -three,
tho rebel seven, being in tho ratio of three to one.
The rebels have not achieved a single success
since tho year set in. It appears, too, that in
nearly oil tho above battles iu which wo gained
victories, the enemy acted upon the defensive and
from behind fortifications. While tho Confedo
rales are pretty much whipped out everywhere,
it is quite evident that the Union troops have
hardly begun to fight, and have only commenced
getting ready. Sac. Union.

Tho diggings in Salmon are very narrow and

There is much suffering there now from scarc

There is no flour at Lew is ton.
Our merchants have on hands about 33, 000

is selling at $25 per bbl. ; bacon 45 to 50 cts. ;
tobacco $1 ; nails 33 J etc.
Fry, our messenger, had to come in on foot
from Poujades ranch, 10 miles out.
Tho amount of travel over it going to and

Tho Ericssion iron battery is completed and
is called tho Monitor. Sho was struck by 33
heavy balls and shells from tho Merimao without
injury. The following description of this formi
dable vessel is from tho Now York World :
Tho hull is sharp at both ends, the bow pro
jecting and coming to a point' at an 1 nnglo of
eighty degrees, to tho sides inclining at an angle
of fitly -one degrees to the vertical line, fl it bot
tomed, six and a half feet in depth, built light, of
3 8 inch iron, olio htindre I and twenty-four feet
long, and thirty-four feet wide at the top. An
other or upper hull rests on this, with perpendic
ular sides und sharp ends," live feet high, forty-ono
feet four inches wide, olio hundred and seventy
four feet long, extending over the sides ot tho
lower hull tluvo feet seven inches, and over each,
end twenty-live feet, thus serving as a projection,
to tho propeller, rudder and anchor. Tho sides
of tho upper hull are composed of un inner guard
of iron, a wall of w hite oak, thirty inches thick,
covered with iron armor six iuches thick. When
in fighting order tho lower hull is totally im-' '
mersed, und tho upper one is sunk threo feet six
inches, leaving only eighteen inches obovo water.
Tho battery will draw tell feet of water. Tho
interior is open to tho bottom, as iu a sloop.
The deck comes flush with tho top of tho upper
hull, and is bomb proof. There will bo no rail
ing or bulwark of any kind above tho deck. Tho
inclination of tho lower hull is such that a ball,
to strike in any part must pass through at least
twenty-five feet ot water, and then strike an in
clined iron surface ut an unglo of about ten de
grees. It is therefore absolutely protected, yet
so light as to give great buoyancy.
Only three things are exposed above deck. In
case it is boarded no harm is done. The only
entranco is at the top of the turret, which cannot
bo easily scaled, mid even then but one man at a
time can descend. Two hundred men uro now
constantly employed on the vessel. Tho engines
havo been placed iu it. Two Columbiads will
bo mounted on tho turret, nnd a test of the im
pregnability of the battery will bo made iu front
of some largo rebel battery. If its offensive and
defensive capabilities are satisfactory, it will bo
turned over to tho government.
