Tho telegraphic dispatches which

were full of minora of impending riot in

and who made no secret of their inten

to the application for protection, Super

are pretty certain not to obtain so much.

Yesterday a body of surveyors, which
had been organized in this city, went
west on the Union Pacific to organize a '
great enterprise, iliey will commence
at Evanston, which is a thriving little
town on the Union Pacific, at the base of
the Wahsatch mountains, to rnn the line
of a new railroad, which is to follow the
valley of the Bear river north and north
west to Soda Springs, to strike then west
down Snake river to Bear river, Helena
and Virginia City, and finally tap the
Northern Pacific, at what point is not
known. This, it will be at once seen,
will draw to the Union Pacific the great
trade of Montana and Nevada, and the
fruitful region we have named. They
will survey a wagon road ; along heir
route as well as a railroad. ! One survey
has already been made from Monument
Point to Portland, . Oregon. It is not
known to outsiders what connection this
great enterprise has with the recent meet-
ng of capitalists and railroad managers
in San Francisco. The engineers ill re

The following brief allusion to the
public career of Mr. Vallandigham we
clip from the Chicago post : "His politi
cal career began nationally.' in 185G,
when he was elected to Congress from
the Third Ohio district, holding his seat
continuously until 1S63. His violent and
open rebellious conduct during that
year compelled the notice of the govern
ment, and he was arrdted for treason,
and . condemned to confinement until
'the end of the war;," bnt Presideut
Lincoln modified the sentence into mere
ly dismissing him to the class with whom
his sympathies were. ( This mild mar
tyrdom induced the Ohio Democracy to
nominate him for Governor, and the
faithful people of the State thereupon
buried him under the magnificent majori
ty of 100,000 votes.. Wheu circumstan
ces permitted, he returned to Ohio and
engaged in the practice of his profession
keeping commendably quiet in politics
while he underwent the change of heart
that has resulted in the new departure
and the Dayton platform.

From the Salem Statesman of Wednes- i
day we learn that Hon. A. li. Meaeh- I
am, Superintendent of Indian affair . for .
this District, had started for the Umntil j
la Reservation to confer with the Indians
ot that place for the purpose ot ascertain
ing upon what terms they would give up
their present homes. The Reserva'ion
embraces a fine body of land, lying along
the Umatilla river and its tributaries, and
as good agricultural soil i not over shun
dant in that section of the State, there
is a strong desire on the part of the peo
pie to have the Indians icnioved, so that
the lands of the Reservation may be
thrown open to settlement. Congress, at
its last session, parsed a resolution au
thorizing a preliminary conference with
the Indians to discover their views o . the

but a small part of her bow out of water,
yet it is possible she mav beTaised. She

be considered as the result of one of those
impossibilities ot practicable or successful

more boats will attempt the trip this

J. L. Cummings was tried in Portland
last Saturday, on an indictment for ob
structing: the Uuited States mails ' la
Eastern Ore.jron. The obstruction oc
curred between the Dalles and Canyon
Oity, at a bruise where toll was demand
ed, and the coach was not permitted
to proceed until the sum of 850 was
paid by the driver, : He w3 found
guilty.' "'"' ' K.t;" . 'i-5-' t
The Bulletin of Tuesday says : Tbe
counsel lor the defense have moved lor a
new trial and arrest of judgment, which
comes up to-morrow. It appears that
Mr. Cumtninpt has at no time attttnpted
to evade justice in lact he greatly - as
sisted the officer making' the arrest; iu
order to reach Portland as early as
possible. - He has confidence that he
will be honorably acquitted if permitted
time to obtain witnesses fur a new trial.
He is a citizen of Grant 'county, residing
on the. Canyon xoad. twenty - three miles
below the city. The bridge across which
he refused to allow the mail coach to
pass, was his own property, oo a private
road, and he states that his action was
upon legal advice. ...-
