Oregon Is not Admitted!
Tbo caption of this articlo embodies
n deep and sevcro dliappointmont to1'
nimost cverjr citizen ol Uregon. It bad
been confidently expected that we
would bo admitted beforo tlio adjourn,
mont of Congress, but that much do-
sired object was not accomplished. It
tlon in tho Representative Hall and
prococded to elect two United States
Senators voting viva voce. Gcn'l
Lane was put in nomination ; tho num.
bor votes cast was 50, of which ho re
ceived on tho first ballot 45, and was
therefore declared duly elected one of
the United States Sonators for tho
Stnto of Oregon.
Tho Convention thon proceeded to
tho election of a socond Senator. Hon.
Dolazon Smith and David Logan were
pat In nomination. On the first ballot
tho former received 30 votes and tho
laltor 8. Air. Diyor, of Multnomah,
voted for Jacob Woodsldcs against
Gcnl Lane, and for Joseph Teal
against Dclazon Smith, Hon. Delazon
Smith received a majority of all tho
votes, and was- declared duly elected
one of tho United Sjatet Sonators for.
tho Stato of Oregon.
Thcro is great anxiety manifested
on the part of tho members to adjourn.
Tho session will last but a fow days.
It is barely probablo that a bill to reg.
ulato tho judiciary and appoint tho
tlmos of holding courts can bo rushed
through, but nothing towards organ
winy thRt an appropriation win
bo made by Congress coring its ext
session. Tho Delrgatm from the two
Territories, Gen. Lans and Hon. I. I,
Stevens, have done good servicoin this
matter, having labored incessantly
for tholr constituents, and with ranch
efioct. Thero has been a great chango
wrought in tho public mind in the At
lantio States In tegsrd to the juitness
of our causa and our claims, and not
withstanding the powerful opposition
of Gen. Wool and a small portion of
the press, our claims aro now in a fair
way to bo paid. Tho following from
tho Washington correspondence o( tho
San Francisco Alt a, Is tho Iattj' intelligence:
"Thero was al ono timo a strong
opposition to the war tftbt of tvas h
ington and Oregon, but the delegates
Irom those territories ttavo uuslpnted

Military Committee of tho Senate are

Oa tho 5th June, in tho House, the

Wu think this question of population
will probably not prevent our admis

session. There havo bcon several States
admitted with less population, and we
may soft-ly say that tho people of Oro

In California did several years ago,
when tho publio attention was startled
by reports of the discovery of rich
mines at a distance of but a few days
travel, wlion everybody beforo hearing
tho report seemed to bo doing well,
contented with their lot, and settled
permanently In promising business;
but tho momont something bojond the
mountains, new and never beforo heard
of, "sounding In" gold discovery, un-
parallcd in wealth, no man claimed or
seemed to claim any occupation or
business as his own, but turned for a
solution of every plan and thought to
tho exciting themo of tho "now dig
gings." Now, horo is our county, pns
scsilnc incxhauttlbln cold mines, every
district Is supplied with water tho ycnri
turouch, and we may safely say that
no mining section, either In Oregon or
California, is so thoroughly supplied
and furnished with the perquisites to
successful mining operations as Jo
sepbino county; and not only those
important things are ours, but tho gen.
ernl construction of tho country is such
as to relax tho rigidity of hardship,
nearly always tbo companion or a min-,
eral hunting population; a warm, balmy
climate ; rich, fertile, and fruitful lands, J
lying contiguous to tho mines; n large1
population renowuca, wo may say, tor

Now why should such a prosperous
county as this is known to be, become
tho sceno of frenzied and deiusivo ex
citement about tho reported wealth of
a country which wo bavo no cood rca
son to nciievo uetier man our own,
a foreign land upon which wo bavo no
claim, and In which wo can expect
but littlo, and claim less protection
from its rulors, for tho reason that those
to whom our people can look for pro
tection, nro barely able to protect and
defend themselves from tbo inurdorous
thousands of cruel savages who are
thickly scattered over all that region :
and our brethren going there will not
find them as tho pioneers did tho In
dians in California, a savage, but weak
and feeble race; but a savago, warlike
and powerful race of barbarians, well
provided with the essentials to carry

Orecon was peopled by a bigh order
of cititeus a peoplo possessing a duo

It is much to bo regretted that our
peoplo havo suffered so lonj by the

I regaid it as one of tho nmedisls
advantages to bo derived frofi our ad
