" genoe from Vioktharg, that our oommandert
are mailing tho rebels In the surrounding coun
try to the wall. Immediately upon the turren-

in the direction of Big Black, encountered Jo

direction from ovcland, having crossed Ilia
Big Miami at Vienna, and burned the bridge
after him.
The rebels, tinder Lee, have escaped aorou

- A terrible riot broke out In New York, on
the 12th, in eonseqoenoe of the attempt to en
foroe the draft. Numerous conflicts between
tbe polioe, assisted by the militia, and the riot
era had taken phioe, and a good many lives
lost. The mob was still uiiquelled on the eve
ning of tha 15th. It had burned several hous
es, aud committed numerous outrages of a Bend
ish character. Two or three soldiers captured
had been literally torn to pieces or beaten to
death. Every negro found was beaten or kill
ed. A portion of the TW6aa.Oflloe was gut

was driven away by au armed polioe force.
Tbe Provost Marshal's orHoe was sacked, and
the house burned..
Got. Seymour is in New York, and hat sent

powers for quelling the riot, and Gen. Wool Is

The Peacc Rumok. Wo do not place
much reliance upon the rumor in Friday' dis
patch, to the effect that the rebel commission
er! Stephen and Old were charged with a
proposition for peace on the basil of Hunter's
speech. We have no doubt that if the rebels
gat once thoroughly convinced that recognition
is out of the question, they will be very glad
to fall back on Hunter's plan, which it substan
tially, that the South shall have a separate po
litical government with a general government
for North and South, at to all commercial rela
tiont, whether with each other or with foreign
countries; to be presided over by a President
of the United Confederacies.
Thit it practically hut littlo different from
total independi noe of the two sections, with
treaties of comn ercial amity. The South would
lie to all intents as distinct a people as aro
those of Canada, and the Union, at proposed,
would be Just no Union at all. There would
be no guaranty In it that future secession from
the "comtnericial" alliance would not occur nt

The above hit of secesh pleasantry is from

agent of thit coast, as far at we can hear
There it some disorder, and iu some respect!
the routes and lime of carriage need looking af

dently thought Oregon too small a province of
California to be worth his distinguished consider
ation. Watrous went tearfully up the spool on
a little Senatorial bull and Ihe presumption is
that he drew the postal ogrocy up after him.
If not, where it it and who is the agent ? It
wat rumored that somebody wat appointed to
wear hi cast off agenoy shoes, but, beyond
that, Oregon has no knowledge of hit successor.
The government was last year rvqneted to
establish a separate agency for Oregon
and ashtngtnn, but Ihe application went
unheeded. The P. M. Geueral thonght he
hsd already as many agents on hand as h
could manage, and discouraged the proposition
to add another itraw to hi camel's

The Cattle Embargo. The enforcement
by Victor Smith of tho order forbidding the ex
portation of cattle, has created considerable
excitement in the Northern country. Th
British colonies have heretofore depended
mainly on Washington Territory for their sup
plies of beef, and the order, if strictly enforced
will prove a serious embarrassment. The mat-
ter baa been discussed by the Governors
Washington Territory and British Columbia.
and they have agreed to address an application
to the authorities at Washington for a with-
drawal of the order so fur a this coast is oon
cerned. Tho Victoria Chronicle proposes to
evade the order as follows :
To evsdo the beef embargo, two avenni are
open : 1 he nrst u to establish a slaughter house
at rort Angeles, and ship dead animals to icto
rla daily by tho steamer Caledonia : tho second
and most feasible is to Innd live stock from th
Sound on San Juan Island, whence they may be
reshippod to tins port.
San Juan Island being neutral territory, the
Chronicle thinks tbo bitter plan will not he
violation of the order.

The fall of Vioktburg will operate at no dtt:
taut day to materially contract the boondariei

tained. The troopt now wett ol ine aiissis-
ni can icarcelv proceed in any practical co
operation with those on the east tide, after the
capture of Port Hudson which we look npon
at a Question of time only. Ihey will, ii pot-
sible, be withdrawn eastward to be nted in the
uch reduoed area of the Confederacy. The
rebel foroet in Mittitsippi, 'Iennetsee ana
Louisiana, will either of their own motion fol
low in the general concentration of troopt, or
they will be foroed to do it. But yet all the
lower Mississippi valley may continue to be in-
fetled with roving and predatory bandt of
guerrillas. While the rebellion holds out with
any respectable ihow of resistance, it .cannot
be expected that the excnnioni of luch bands
can be altogether prevented. A great deal of

Tbe defent of Lee, whether he shall be fur
ther orippled or not, will doubtless put an end
to the idea of transferring the teat or war
north of the Potomac. The rebels have learn
ed by dearly bonght experience, the impracti
cability of carrying on anything beyond a de
fensive war. They announced bnastingly in
the beginning of the war that, if defeated in
the open field and driven from their intrencb
ments, they would retreat to the mountain fait-
nesies.and carry on a predatory guerrilla warfare
at long at a man was left. They will proba
bly fulfill their boast so far as to contract the
boundaries of the territory they will attempt to
defend, aa far at they find it Decenary. It
may be possible that within a few months, the
active rebellion will be thut dwarfed to three
or four States or fraclioni of Statet. But thil
hedging in process will only be forced by a
prompt and vigorous prosecution of the recent
advantages. Waiting where we are to tee
how near dead tho rebellion is, wont accom
plish it. Tho rebellion should be allowed no
breathing spell. We have got it to whip, and
the more rapidly and vigorously the blowt are
applied, the sooner will the devilish thing 07
