II In highly probable Hint bloody and de

Kosckruns' ndvnnco was in sight of Mm

tho enemy In view in line of battle. It
wjw expected that a-battles would take place
on the IlOlh. Although tho position of the
enemy is one of their own choosing, mid is

Admiral Fnrragut had attacked Tort
Hudson with his gun-boats, and completely
demolished capturing sixty cannon. At
latest dates lie was twenty miles below
Vlcl.'sburg. Porter was above the doomed

Tho news from the Traufi-Mipsijlppl De

and IMiuit Imvo some mobility about them.
Thoy moved their columns forty-two miles
in one day. Celerity of movement is but
another name for victory. Tho slowly
moving mas? may finally crush by force of
its vis inertia, but the nctlvu and vigilant
commander, by the celerity of ids move
ments mid the suddoncss of his attacks,
multiplies his ciTectivo force by thousands.
This truth not only receives a cheering il
lustration in tho Union victories in Arkan

raids in Virginia. Under thesu circum

Henry appear in nil their elopienco and
truth : " The battle is not to tho strong

The most Important item in all the news
published to-day. is tho reported capture of
Kuuxville, Tennessee, by Cof. Garter. If
this bo true, it is the most important
achievement of the year. It cuts oft' the
great artery that feeds the hem t of the re

mid suffering, yet loyal East Tennessee.
Tnfaxk. A. person named F. Newton
Wcstfull is now confined in the Jail ut thin
place, awaiting the completion of arrange
ments to semi him to tho Insane Asylum
lit Portland, lie i3 raving constantly and
is a dangerous person. Tho cost of his
transportation to Portland will be not less
than three hundred dollars. If lie lived in
Marlon, it might possibly cost the people
of thnt county fifty dollars. The additional
two hundred and fifty dollars is levied as a
sort of pnnUhment on the people of Juck
eon county for living so fur uwoy Irom the
Asylum. It is just, we presume I It is a
little dangerous to live in close proximity
to the Asylum, and tho taxes are gauged
according to the degree of danger. Hence
tho people of Multnomah county, living in
much danger, pay nothing. The taxes in
crease in the ratio of the increuso of dis
tance from the point of danger. Tho pco
plo of Jackson, Josephine, Coos, Gurry,
Douglas and Tinker counties, arc supposed
to bo in a state of absolute security ; hence
'they pay high for tiio transportation of
their unfortunates. O, just and equal laws,
how great iiro your blessings ! How in
'comprehensibly profound the legislative ge
nius that first perceived the benificencc of
our Iusnne Law !

Ed. ScntiuiL' The " merry, merry bells
of Yuic " will Boon ring in tlio happy hol
idays How elm 1 1 our people celebrate
the occasion ? Where thoughts of Santa'
Glaus once filled the home-circle with jollity
anil glee, too " pale horse and his rider "
has pawed, sweeping, as with tlm besom of
battle, Love, Hope and Pence, from the
oncecheeiful fireside, and a thousand liv
ing pleasures into sorrowful memories. In
the family circle, where erst they " wove
the holly round the hearth," the scene will
bo draped in mourning for tho loved and
lost. In homes where of yore happy hearts
beat a welcome for the holiday return of
the straying, anxious though these hearts'
be, none will look hopefully for that com
ing. Immigrant may be written over the
doors of those dwellings; for, truly, what
home hns not sent forth some friend or
dear one to the dreadful war.
Another murder was committed ut Slate
Greek, on the road to Florence, a few days
ngo. Arthur Chapman killed Billy Win
ters, a notorious rogue, who, last summer,
got into n sham quarrel and fight with one
of his ilk, and, under pretense of shooting
his antagonist, aimed over his shoulder at
a man whom lie feared to fight, and shot
him in the neck, killing him immediately.
Winters this time got cnuglit in his cow
mi illy dodge. I To got into n furious quar
rel with unother " tuff cuss " in Chapman's
ehebiitig, nml when Chapman interfered to
slop tho fight, Winters tried to stab him
over tho shoulders of his companion in
crime; but failing in the first attempt,
Chapman then seized n hatchet mid gave
him such a blow on the head us to make it
decidedly unhealthy for him. lie lived but
an hour. Tlioo who have known Winters,
nppear to think it fortunate that such a
" lull' cuss " was put nway so easily.

from California, and the Hon. J. B. from
Roclc Point, who proffers consolation, in
the shape of " oats and hay," to his (era
niverous) friend In distress, Malnne, do not
form themselves into n Chamber of Com
merce, or some other kind of conclave, and
proceed at once to investigate and decide
upon I lie expediency and constitutionality
or allowing the shipment of specie from
Oregon for the purpose of relieving the soldier-citizens
of other Sluice, without de
manding in return n currency better known
to themselves than thankfulness or grnli
tuile. I wonder if cither of thoso gents
take "greenbacks," and which they would
prefer, salts or the ''oath."
The garrison hero is well nigh completed.
In n week more, tho whole command will
bo in comfortable quarter. The health ol
the garrison is excellent. The weather
continues clear and cold nights frosty and
day3 sunshiny. It is generally expected
that a military post will bo established at
or near old Fort Boiso next spring, and
the utility of the movement is not ques
tioned. Wishing the Srstinkj. a Merry Christ

as ever, yours respectfully. Sookk Bov.

Taxing tiik Minks. The Commissioner
of the General Land Office, in his annual
report to the Secretary of the Interior, re
commends that a proper mining pystcm be
matured, and that a tax of eight per cent.
he levied on the whole yield of tho mines.
He estimates the annual yield of tho mines
in California at 870.000.000. Tho Bulk
tin says that it is not over 850,000.000.
The annual product of tho Salmon mines
is estimnted at 820.000,000. The JiulleUn
says that " Oregon and Washington will
furnish no evidence of having yielded 81.
000,000 the lust year." Nevada may send
out as much ns 85,000,000 of gold and
silver. The yield of the Pike's Peak mines
is not estimated.
It is very doubtful whether any benefi
cial results would be obtained by taxing
the mines. It strikes us that (ho costs of
collection under the system proposed would
cat up the revenue expected to be derived
from (ho mines, A better plan would bo
to divide the mineral laud off into lots of
convenient size, and then sell them. This
would give the miner a permanent interest
in the soil, and romovo the uncertainties
now attending hi title.
Soxoua. Tho French Emperor proposes
to occupy Sonorn wijh eight thousand
troops. He also contemplates sending
quite a number or war vessels to the west
