Information received to day contradicts the

Perhaps no lives were lost or property destroy,

damage was done. Latest information place

Borne Minks We are informed by Mr.
Steele, of Yreka, who is on bis way below,
thai considerable excitement exists in Siskiyou
county ill resort to the lloise ami liaumick
City mines. The people of Siskiyou are agi
tating the subject of a wagon road from Yreka
to lliinnoek City. All agree Ibat thu direct
, and moat accessible route is by Unnsn Lake,
and t!. only drawback to tba Yreka road ia
the fear that Ibe people of Trillium county will
build mad from Bed Bluff to Bannock Cliy
, and cut Yreka off, as the road could be built
. iiiiioIi nearer from Red lllulT than to go bv the
way or Yreka. Mr. Steele thinks that 1 1.(100
would open a passable route from Yreka much
- better than any mule now traveled from any
point on the Columbia river. And if a passa
ble mad nan lie opened with that aniall sum
from Yreka, surely the amount required In
open S mad from Red Bluff would hu so litlit
that it would lie the least consideration. Red
i Bluff can see u re the immense trade of that
, populous and faat growing section if it chooses.

The West was once characterized by Thorn'
us H. Benton, in a speech in Congress, as "no
lilc, devoted, generous, and patriotic," Noth
lug bad ever occurred at that time lo establish
her right to any titles of distinction except in
common with other portions of our country,
though perhaps the old statesman knew some
thing nf what would be the spirit and tendency
of her rapidly increasing population. But tho
events of the past two years und a half have
shown that none of these epithets were uii
pluccd. She bo proved her nobility by turn
ing out her thousands of nature's iiohlcmen.w ho
were willing to die in defense of Union und
Liberty i she bat proved ber devotion hy her
straightforward and unwaver ug course iu sup
porting the government witbont stopping to
dictate terms and measures, and nothing could
exceed the generosity and patriotism with
which she has yielded up her blood and treasure
lo aid in defending thn government under the
fostering care of which she grew to greatness
and power. Iu mailing these statements it is
no part of our intention to detract from any
other portiou of our country. It should be tho
aim of every patriot to avoid engendering or
encouraging anything like sectional prejudice.
Iu a country lilio ours every man should feel at
home in every part, and there should bo but
one government, una (lug, mid one history .
We are simply stating theso as facts of which
every American should be proud. If tho
States of Iho great West have yielded their
support to the war for the Union as freely and
steadily as the great river that drains their prai
ries bo rolled it continuous floods Into the
Gulf, there is no reason why the facts should
not lie published to the world.
Ohio has furnished for tho war one hundred
and suvcnty-fiva thousand men ; Illinois one
hundred and thirty-five thousand ; Indiana,
one hundred and two thousand j Iowa fifty -one
thousand ; Michigan forty-eight thousand, and
Wlscousiu forty -three thousand, mulling
ovor hulf a million i limit counting what
have been furnished by Minnesota, Mis
souri and Kansas. And bow well these
western men have dime their duty, is seen w hen
when we consider their achievements. These
were the troops that planted tho nalionul Hag
on the of walls Doiielson.thnt cleared Missouri of
rebels, that met and vanquished equal or supe
rior number at Sbiloh and Murfreeel'ioro, mill
prosecuted lo a successful tc rmiuution the w ea
ry siege of Vicksburg.
Besides these things, the West is entitled to
credit for the pntiuiit manner in which she has
suffered the consequence of this protruded
war. While the market for her produce has
been to a great de, ree injured by it, she hu
heen utile to ninmilucture none, or hut lew. of
those articles that have enabled New England
to bold her own ; and while the littler section
hits suffered equally with the former, iu the
number of valuable lives sacrificed upon the
altar of the country, it is no doubt Irno Hint
the pecuuiitry disadvantages arising from the
war have been more severely felt In the West
than in the East.
But it is needle s to mnliiply words in exloll
Ing the patriotic devotion of the West. In the
luugnnge that a treat orator onue applied tn
New Eugland, "There Is her history and there
it will remain forever." The bone of her
brave sons, who rnllied at the first sound of the
war truinpet.nre bleaching on every field where
the armies of the Union and Ibe hordes ol trea
son have contended, and her generous devotion
and patriotio loyally will never bu forgotten
until future generations have ceased to love
freedom and honor its defenders.

Judge the yield to be from six to eight hundred

two facts are worthy of notice, iu tobacco ruis

Pkospkutino. A great number of men
have been in the Cascade, mountains, since the
discovery of gold beiirmg quarts, prospecting
for other lodes. Of five or six parties from
Salem and vicinity, nil but one have returned.
They have been inoslly on the waters of the
North Fork of the Santiam river. While uime
liavo found quartz in which gold is visihlu to
the eye, the opinion of all the prospector is,
that the "indications" uro decidedly hopeful.
Numerous quartz lodes were found, that have
all tho appeurooes of being rich in silver-
There is little room fur doubt that a thorough ex
amination of tho country such as it will receive
next summer will reveal the existence of val
liable gold and silver mines. The season at
which the prospecting has been done this year,
is too advanced for successful operations. The
party of which wo were a member, encounter
ed almost continual storms of rain and wind
Soma snow fell during one uight. Iu such
weather, it is utterly impossible to do anything
on the mountain summits. uoou molting
quartz was found on several monntnin slopes
ami in one or two tributaries of tho North Fork.

Pirate Case Continued.
8am Francisco. Oct. 8.
The Chapman pirate case wa summed nn
tut morning oy a. Attorney rnarp. i
Lake followed in an arrument for the prisoner.
If the prisoner hod a letter of marque tm-y
were belligerent, aud were amenable etily to
the laws of war. Secondly there waa do oum
piete letter of niarqoe the witness having trs
librd that tbe document wa in blank. Atain
the vessel had not Urted on a voyage but land
only dropped out inlo the stream to await en
tire readme. It ia not shown that any overt
act was eummitted.bat onlyaa inlentioo. which
if not S crime. Under ths law of war they
might tt out a privateer In the port of Mexico,
a ueulral power. This seem to he the gist of
the argument. Alexander Campbell will follow
i fur the defense, and Thompson Campbell will
elie lor the government. I he case will prob
ably I evoeladcd this week.
The man who goes nut on a cloudy day dur
ing the rainy' scasnn in Oregon, and nfter cast
ing a hurried look at the shy and noticing the
course of tho wind, proceeds lo prognosticate
as to Iho future state of the weather, is about m
npt tn be corre-t in his calculations as he who
casts his eye over tho country and, uftcr noting
the position of the different hostile camps, at
tempts to figure nut tho tendency of passing
events. Thn ruins and snows have their sea
sons. If we go nut on a Winter morning mm
find tho ground covered with snow, the lakes
crusted over, nnd everything frozen up genu
nilly.wo may console ourselves with the thought
that "July will thaw it out." Nut war is not
controlled by times and scaon. At midnight
ond noonday, in Summcrand Win'er, its con
tinuous roar is heard, and It only ceases when
the causes that produocd it are done awny with,
or one of the contending parties has submitted.
Neither of these results has as yet been reached
In the present war, and every look we cast
at the nolitlcal skv tends to confuse rather than
enlighten us ns to the final result of the
struggle. We predicted at the lieginuing mat
it would be a long and bitter one, In winon pa
tience as well as patriotism would be called In
to their fullest exorcise, and we arc euro that
past events and present indications do not foioe
u to change that opinion, nine ami again it,
has been asserted that tho rebellion was on Its
"lust legs," but it has always been found to
have another pair in reserve, and ablo to travel
again immediately after each pair was broken.
There Is no doubt that the leaders of tho rebel
lion went into it with the desperation of con
spirators who knew their lives and fortur.es
were involved In Its issue, and they will never
submit so long as they can force the masses to
upport their measures, no mutter how wicked
or desperate they may be. With them, it Is a
struggle of life and death a struggle which bo-
comes mors desperate and bitter ns the circle
which they have to defend heonmae smaller.
From its lieginuing, they have acted generally
on the defensive, and while numbers of their
urge cilicr, and considerable portions of their
territory have fallen in our bunds, tho troops
necessary to garrison and hold thoso places has
decreased our nvailublo force, while theirs has
been correspondingly increased. Their cause
is one which will not bo abandoned ns soon as
it becomes hopeless, Like the wild beast pur
sued hy Iho hunters, they will oot bo amused to
tho hist pitch of dei-pcriition until they ar
driven to their den. They will doubtless yield
to the force of circumstances moro willingly
when contending iu Maryland, Missouri or
Tennessee, than tlf-y will after they are con
fined within the area of Ihc cotton Stutes. It
our people would consider all these things when
counting the chance of the present struggle,
they would not be so frequeutly disappointed
by what seem to them unexpected delays. We
must not expect that a rebellion of so va-t pro
portions, tho leaders of which have been years
preparing for it, can be crushed out iu a few
days or months.
liut thcru are other things besides mere home
matters that aro to bo taken into account,
There is no doubt that the strength of tho re
bellion is waning, but when the clouds over our
heads break away and the storm that is raging
round us seems near its closing, we see rising in
the distance a new horror in the prospect of for
eign intervention. We know il. to bo policy of
certain European power to use every means
wilhiii their power to prolong the present war,
und that it is their desire to keep our couutry
disunited. Russiu. generally culled the must
despotic power in the world, has showu herself
our firm and steady frieu !, while "republican
France," and England, our oldeet enemy.uuder
cover of a hypocritical neutrality, have been at
fording aid and comfort to our internal foe.
There is room for fear that the two latter pow
ers will interfere iu the American strugglo so
so soon as they dare to. They are deterred
from this ut present, probably by two consider
ations. Our country is better prepared for war
now than ever before, aud though they may
bluster and bray, they may think that the time
lias not yet arrived wheu they may safely at
tack tho giant of western freedom. Then he-
sides this, their European complications have
their influence. Russia is watching them with
a jealous eye, and any new step they may take
is liable to plunge the in into n war with I cr,
The Polish question is yet unsettled, and seems
likely tu remain so for some time; iu fact, eve
rything seems to indicate trouble in the old
w. rid, uud wu think that any interference iu
America by France or Eiiglaud at present
would be likely to bring on a general war.
Such an event we do hot think probable, as it
is certainly to the interest of !1 to prevent il.
Taken altogether, we think present indications
promise favorable results. Foreign interven
tion is evidently not as imminent a it wo two
years ago. France ha not succeeded in con
quering Mexico yet nor in inducing the Aas
man prince lo accept the throne of the proposed
monarchy there to be established, and it is un
doubtedly Napoleon's design to accomplish
those two results before Irvine hi fortune
across the ltio tirnmle. The British linn seems
quiet nt present, with the exception ofan neoa.
