EUGZJTE CITY, SATURDAY, AUGUST 9, 1862.
THE REBELLION ASD THE RESULT.
The lucubrations of any obscure writer iu the
more remote parts of the country coulJ hardly
bo expected by any one to have any great weight
upon the public opinion of the mass of his coun
trymen but still, if it were possible to write in
unison with the unexpressed sentiments of think,
ing men now and then scattered throughout the
nation, he might wake up coadjutors strong
enough to raise quite a party, and finally change
the course, or rather direct it in what to the
writer seemed to bo the right channel. We
have now subject of thought enough to occupy
tho brains of all the wise, the talented, the
benevolent. Our country bleeding calls for aid
and sympathy from all humanity shudders at
the scene of her sufferings causeless rebellion
has drenched the soil with the gore of thousands
of her misguided followers, and alas, olso with
the life's blood of patriots of the good, the
brave, the true hearted.
War is sad is terrible to be avoided by
a'l the means possible except by the sacrifice ofjay9, "Big Injin n.e ! I an't nameless, you
honor, of UUrt't. of uumax prookess. Then , bet ! I pay my money to have my name ."
whon to subscribe to peice, it follows that
evil, and wrong, nnd slavery, and ignorance,
hand in hand overrun the land there must,
however strong the desire fur peace, awake in
ecry patriot's breast ii holy rage war becomes
sacred, it becomes the true humanity nnd every
blow it strikes is against some mrmidon of
vice of hell.
Never was there more holy war than that
now waged by tho Union against Sjcessia ; never
has greater magnanimity been shown than by
the Northern armies and the Government of the
United States toward their Southern foes. Thsre
is no use to digu':se our sentiments as to the
fact that this war was brought on by tho south
ern factloiiists in their intrigues and machinations
for the last thirty or thirty-five years, solely on
account of slavery. The negro, and the negro
alone is tho cause of southern aggression on
northern lights. We should have no hesitstion
in denouncing as absurd the southern statements
that northern abolitionists were at the bottom of
this war, it is absurdity itself, and now admitted
by the rebels, for do they not brand all of us
who are not feecssiou sympathizers and who are
good Union men, whether Republicans, Douglas
Democrats or by whatever party name we have
been called, us abolitionists? It has become
now the feeling that the negro question must be
settled. We are f.,st becomeing abolitionists,
because we are compelled to be, and now it has
become a military necessity. Shall wo shrink
t, j,,,,. J We did not make it, rebellion made
it and holds it up before our faces and there
arc thoso wiio call themselves Union men, who
can't bear to be told that they aro fighting for
freedom for the slave and for tho train of bless
ings that will follow free labor. Wo nre; and
nnd tho sooner all ndmit this fact tho more
hearty and candid will be tho support of the
Administration and the more speedy the peace
which all desire, nnd which will follow tho sub
mission, (and wo hopo tho execution or expa
triation) of tho demagogue traitors of Secessia.
The position is not to be misunderstood. The
negro it the issuo between tho North nnd South.
Tho issue was not made by tho North or north
eru abolitionssts, but by a purse-proud negro
driving aristocracy made by a class of men
whose plethorie purses (now hapily well shrunk
en nnd shriveling still more) were filled with
tho gold coined from the sweat-drops of suffering
humanity a class despising labor and toil, and
branding men with far more intelligence than
themselves, of a higher and nobler humanity,
as "mudsills" a class who have been educate!
(or generations in the belief that they are " tho
salt of the earth" and that the proper condition
of things was the supreme rulo of the land for
them ; negroes, mudsills and poor white trash
all at their feel. To exterminate these " vermin"
from the " body politic" wo welceme war, wel
come eonstation, welcome EMANCIPATION.
The Chasoi. The chapgo in the War De
partment seems to be generally misunderstood.
Rorno have taken up tho idea that McClellan has
been superceded by the appointment of Ilalleek
as Commander in Chief, others think that II alleek
is virtually made Secretary of War, while some
hue sV.l.aol tho idea U..i If -t'lei-k superceded
McClellan and that McClellan was to take the
j-.'are of Stanton. It seems that while McClellan
remained at Washington be was Cominander-in.
Chief of all the armies of the United States.
When he left Washington to march into Virginia,
in comm ind of the great army of the Potomac,
he could no longer act iu that capacity, and it
therefore devolved on the Secretary of War,!
who has since had control of the general move
ments of the several divisions of the army.
Ilalleek ha been called to Washington to act as
Commander-in Chief, and direct the movements
of tho various divisions of the army, while Mo
Clelian still remains in command of the army
before Richmond, and Stanton is yet Secretary
of War, relieved only of the direct control of
the movements of the army, which properly
belongs to a Military Commander, and not to the
Secretary of War.
Thb EzGisTsa. This dirty little treason grind
er, which issues from the back end of a garret
over by the old whisky shop, says that in an ar
tide in the Rbpibucas, of July 26th, " Some
thing less than half a dozen gramatical and as
many typographical errors occur." Only one
orthographical error in that part of a sentence.
A few lines further down it gives us the follow
ing lesson in grammar : " If the spiritual gen
tlemen meant to say that the Clerks office wa
out of order when taken charge of by the Repub
liean Auditor, we must tell Aim that they havt
consulted, etc. in anyone unueriane to

of a sentence t That it grammar with a venge
ance, aow. tor a paper, so mucn more remaric
able for errors than for the quality which Web-
ster was said to possess, to allude to this subject,
and thus invite and provoke criticisms which
would not otherwise have been made, evinces a
degree of selfconceit and shallowness equal to
that displayed by Thompson' famous colt, in
swimming the Mississippi river, where it was a
mile in width, to get a drink on the opposite side.
Again, it says : " We regret to give such eon
ttmtalle scribblers the benefit of an advertise,

with neatness nnd dispatch." It also talks about
" nameless scribblers," in a manner that plainly

so long as they obey the laws and express their

What's Up? The secessionists In Oregon
seem to bo making a huge effort to " raise Con
federate bonds," not paper bonds, but the grasp
of the famous" Anaconda," which they lidicuted
as a sickly cowardly beast that would not dare
to show his head to tho alligators in tho swamps,
and that could neve." penetrate into the " South
proper." However remarkable it may seem,
he has got down into the " South proper," and
is kicking up such a row among the big. traitors
aud gun thieves, mid even down to the common
murderers, that, their brethren out here are get
ting alarmed for their safety. So they have start
ed a few new papero to advocate the cause of
Jefferson ii Co., and to be circulated at the ex
pense of the United States Government, that
" nbolition, Yankee concern " which they are
trying so hard to destroy. From this we might
inter that tho " Confederates " havo sent out
money to stir up treason and rebellion in our
midst, if it were not well known that the misera-
hln li.wr,Tiir have tiothiiiL' to snare. 1' veil our
e a .
little neighbor has been enlarged lately, and is
putting on airs fit to kill. Then there is the Al
bany Inquirer lately started, and the Portland
Advertiser rev ived ; nnd they did start a little
thing at Vancouver, called the " Morning Glory,"
a paraphraseon "Johnson and Beauregard the glo
ry of the land," nnd it flourished one whole week.
The key to this bustle among the scceslvcrs is
undoubtedly to be found in the action of a por
tion of the California Democracy, who are pre
paring the way to go over to the rebels, and
form a " Union Demoratic party," to be used to
assist tho secsoisonists and rebels in their
efforts to destroy the Uuion. That is the game
tho secesliers are playing nt in this State. They
start papers to sing " Tho Union as our fathers
made it one and inseparable," and then oppose
every measure which can be adopted to sust ain
the Union, and preach compromise or some other
humbug, which is entirely impracticable, and
which the South docs not want. Your money
will be thrown away, for the Union Democrats
of this State are too sharp to be caught in any
of your ttapj. You are not smart enough to
play the game you have undertaken.

Don't be scared " little one," " now don't."
It is significant fact, nnd one of historic cer
tainty that the aborigines nre a very credulous,
superstitious people, givei to beliefs in, and
fears of ghostly sights and sounds giving heed
to all manner of vagaries. It is but rational to
suppose, that long and familiar association
with them would tend to "addle" and " hobgob
linze" even the "brightest" intellects. Now,
as to whether the "spectre" that the little thing"

the real spirit of some confiding, forsaken, daily
daughter of the forest, returned to ehido the in
constancy of the " pale faces" alias " Doston

We do regret however, thut the apparition

made an allusion two weeks ngo to the way in
which the affairs of this county have been con

we have ever had in this county. We well know
that JefFis accomplished, and have no hesitanion
in say in ', that we believe that he is, the best
qualified man for Auditor that the secessionists
have in the couniy, yet this does not prove him
competent. We dropped into the clerk's office
a few days since, and examined seventy dupli
cate county orders, (retained for reference) and
of the seventy, only tlx were dated, and only
about half of them designated what they were
for. If any doubt these facts, we refer them
to the records. But the Register is like Floyd,
Davis nnd the secessionists generally, when
ihey get all the money there is in the treasury,
u all we want is to be let alone with our rights."
Last Wednesday and Thursday evenings our
citizens were favored with exhibitions of Gropius'
European Panorama, by Mr. C C Perry, pro
prietor. Mr. P. spares no pains to please and
instruct, and is eminently capable. The Pano
rama presents visws of the Arctic regions and
many of the principal cities of Europe ; of the
Britha channel between Dover and Havre, the
Straits of Gibraltar, and views on the Mediter
ranean, Black and Baltic seas. Many of the
scenes are very fine, and seem as real as if
brought directly before the eye. The exhibition
presents a fine intellectual treat to those who are
fond of contemplating the most remarkable
works both of nature and of art, and, including
the lecture which gives much valuable informa
tion, it is worth more than all the negro shows
and slight of hand performances in the country.
We would recommend all lover of the beautiful,
and epecially the young, to patronize this Pan
orama wherever it is exhibited.
