Alps Wq.ro Havk a Dkaft. A ppecial
"Washington dispatch to Chicago Buys tliat
u.drafj " been ordered in Culifornia. A
War, Depart imjnt circular, signed byMumes
B. Fry,, j'rovost Murplinll General, divides
California into three Enrollment Districts
Mtrjflvilo is lo be the headquarters for
the, Northern District, Sacramento, for
tlio ,Midd,lc, District, and Sun Francisco
lor th,e, Southern District.
The question arises, if tlio druft is en.
forced. In Culifornfa.will Oregon be exempt?
We think not. We have u Provost Mar
hul.whn vvjll soon commission ngenta to
unroll tlio, names of nil persons liublu to do
military duly, lint we nro conlident no
body or men will bo drufted on this coast
lor Bervicj.fn the Wast. It will not pay.
Tt h prohabiu thu only purpose of the en
iolhncnt,is that tho Government inny be
iible, uUliort notice, to call forth u large
nrmy, on tliiH const. The.ro is wisdom in
this mentmre. for there is great danger to
bu, apprehended from Napoleon If. Jie is
Kecking, to establish a French Kmpiro in
Mexico, and, for the furtherance of hisom
bitiojn object) it is thought that he will re
rognbw the Confederate States, nnd form
imjillinncewlththo, rebels in their war on
oijr. Government. Louis Napoleon is i
Kucions enough to know that he can never
find a more favorablp time than tho pres
ent to M film .with, (fleet a rival national
power. (lic)i, if .loft nlono to euppress a
fuHt.CHkeniiur rebellion of its own citizens,
wil( not discharge its sold'crs, or distnan
tlo fU)hip.ofrwar( Until the Fjrcnch invaders
are driven from tho American Continent.
l. therefore, a wiso ineusuru for our
Goyt-rnmcnt to .prepare for a war with
Witi. Frnncp, (hat may ut any time be
fQrcd udoi) her. If troops are to be rais
in! , in Oregon, let them bo ruised
I'ok Hoisk. On Monday or Tuesday
next, Mr. IT, Bloom will start a pack-train
of forty jinnies, loadeil with flour, bacon,
:q,fbr tht, Boise country, over tho new
wagon rortd. . From tho latest accounts
received frpm Boise, wo judgo that Mr.
JJIoomV enterprise will be moie profitable
ilian, he could Imve hoped for. The latest
Mayntfthwtr informs us that the Riipply
of .flour in tlio Jloiso market was equal to
but very few weeta consumption, and the
ruling 4-aje was fifty centH per pound. It
iajkought that the prices of flour and pro
duce of nil kjod must continue to rule very
high, from tho fuct that that country can
produce nothing of the kind this year, and
Iron) no paint, can sufficient produce be at
tained to,sustain the large and fast-growing
VopulnWoo. There is not a doubt in
our minds, that if tho now wagon roud was
completed in two or three weeks, the fur
meis of this valley could freight every
pound of thoir surpliis.produce to thut mar
ket and disposo of it witli great profit.
Tuol'Iii.k with iNDtANH. i)y the Mown,
taiueer wo learn that u pack-train belong

John Day country, by Indiuns,on the 17th

Indiana composed tho attacking party. They
tired eighteen shots, slightly wounding one
man, killing a horso and stampeding twelve
pack-mules. Low, $1,G00.

Bymph'thising' process of argumentation
now-a-dny may properly bo called tmntfer
logic. This Is tho popular wenpon, bath of
attack and defence," to thoso who have
neither knowledgo nor brains. Col . T' Vault
and the Stnttman editor arc experts at this
system of ratiocination. The process Is
very simple, yet. very ingenious. It con
sists in taking names or terms, odious in
thomnnlvcrt. and annltcablo to n verv'few In-
llividnals.,nnd applying them to lurgomnsn
c?s of men, seeking thereby" to transfer the
rtpprobtotiFncsi of which tho name or term
is.n synonym, us. wnll as tho term Itself.
We sco this exemplified In the mad-dog cry
of "Abolition," constantly raised by those
scribbling savans. Overpowered In a contro
Ivercary by tho stern logic of facts, they will
beat a retreat under the protecting howl of
It is a word of learned length and thun
dering sound, nnd its use at onoo indicates
wisdom and Democracy i Thla system of
logic Is not the result of tho Inventive
genius of these great men, but Is as old as the
reign of tho Kmpcror Nero. IIu used to
dress Christians in tho skins of wild beasts,
nnd then hiss tho dogs upon them, nnd they
toro them to pieces, much to tho amusement
of tho ignorant populace.
Hut. pray, what la Abolitionism? A
word of such untold horror, and of such
logical keenness, foreo nnd power, ought to
bo accurately delined, Thu renowned in
htnictor of the grunting race, says that "a
profi'tccd Democrat, who has his cntcs
about him, nnd who is deliberately for the
war, is an AMitiomtt of tho most radical,
violent nnd destructive kind." Are you
for the war, Mr. Stattman ? If so, nro ou
not nn Abolitionist of tho meanest kind?
IMeaso to I'uvor us with your dcllnittou of
this horrid idea. Let uh seo whut are the
awful elements which you crowd into the
concentrated horror. A leading Democrat
has delined an Abolitionist to bo ouu "who
did not believe In slavery as n divine insti
tution, nnd as n political, Foclal and moral
blessing, and who was not in favor of
spreading it over the wholu North." Is
such your definition of the term, Mr. StattS'
man? In our brief artlclo of Aug. 12th,
after giving OWcnra's definition, as quoted
above, wo used tho term in tho sense thus
defined; whereupon, tho Statesman, seized
with a fit of logical power, rcaoned as cor
rectly, and on precisely tho same grounds,
as tho boy did when ho astonished tho world
with the following profound sylogism :
"A'olhing Is better than religion; potatoes
are better thnn nothing; therefore, potatoes
uru better than religion."
The term Democrat In appropriated by
every traitor in tho whole land in fact, It
has become one of tho synonyms of treason.
Every traitor, and every sympathizer with
traitors, calls every Union man an Aboli
tionist. Under theso circumstances, much
of thu odium onco properly attaching Itself
to tho term "Abolitionist," tins been lost in
its general and iudbcrimlunto application;
and much, if not nil, tho honor connected
with the name "Democrat," has been black
ened and sullied by tho foul breath of trea
son. Abolitionism, in its true fenre, we
aro, and always have been, opposed to, nnd
over expect to be. Wo aro for the Govern
ment without limitation or condition, and
for tho Administration, tho only organ
through which that Government can act.
We belluvo that a negro is just as good
food for grape-shot and cannon balls us a
whito man, and henco aro in favor of their
employment In the crushing out of this
wicked and monstrous rebellion. Wo be
lieve that the taking of tbcm from their
rebel master weakens tho rebellion, and
hence aro in favor of tho Emancipation
Proclamation, not as an objeot of tho war.
but as u means for its successful prosecution
and glorious termination.

Letting out Their Secrets.
A very slrnntrc revelation Is mnde in the
dispatches received yesterday. Capt Luce
of the barque Sun-et, captured by the Flor
ida, on the 7th of July, it .week before the
breaking- out of tho New York riots, has
mnde u statement tn the eflVet thut he was
informed by Maflif, the Captain of tk pi
rate in question, that " lye's invasion of
V ennsylvnnin was to be mueil bv a cop
perhead demonstration in New York and
other northern cities which ho believed
would cnmpell the United Stntes Govern
ment to make pence with the rebels and
acknowledge their independence." It is
not at nil probable that a gentleman occu
pying the position of Capt. Loco would
fabricate nnd permit tn bo published u
statement such n this if it was not found
ed on truth. American ship-masters are,
as n clasi, too high-minded and honorable
to descend to falsehoods.
There Is every reason, then, lo plneo re
liance in the storv to which reference has
been made. MufTit could not have pre
dicted on the 7th of July that there was
going to be riots in New York and sever
nl of the other northern cities, if ho had
not been uwaro that steps hud been taken
to cet them up.
In the city of New York Itself no seri
ous appreciation of troubles were enter
tained till the building in which the draw
ing was being conducted, on one of the
avenues, was assaulted by thu mob nnd
burned down. Under these circumstances
the speculations of MufTit furnish the most
inefrngible proof that the doings of the
rioters in New York were inspired by per
sons disaffected toward- the Government.
If tlio mob had triumphed and taken po
session of the city, then the riot would
have become n revolution. Hut who were
those men? The Copperhead lenders who,
for months before, had breu misrepresent
ing every net of the Government, denouuu
inir its policy and using all their (flbrls lo
bring it into contempt. In their hands,
to a very trreat extent, the rioters were un
conscious instruments. They had stirred
them up to resist the draft .that is. they
used them to fire the train which they ex
pected would end in a grand explosion.
There are men going about this State
at tills time doing I he very snmo thing
that Wood and his confreres did in ISew
York bclore the riots took place. They
uro doing everything in their power lo
misrepresent every act of the Government.
Denouncing the Government in tho most
frhumcles manner, they say the right of
tree speecli has lieen abridged ; hinting the
propriety of resisting the laws of CongrCNi,
they prate about despotism ; laboring
night nnd dny to tin the uplifted nrm of
the nation, they swenr thaC libeity of ac
tion is nn longer tolerated, and that free
dom is dead. These men are storing up
for themselves n wL'ht of infamy, for
which there is no parallel. In tho hour of
victory and triumph they are for the abase
ment of tho nntion at the feet of tho re
bellion. At the very moment when the
dawn, ufter the long und woeful night
through which we hnvo been passing, is
beginning to break, their counsel i for the
abandonment of the contest and tho sur
render of all tho great advantages won by
the Federal nrms. It would be impossible
for the foul fiend to devise a more dninr.ing
record than these men, in tho blindness of
their fanaticism, are carving out for them
It is 6tated that -on order for the consoli
dation of regiments which have been reduc
ed by desertion or other causes, to less' than
the minimum number required by the rules
of tho service, will soon bu issued from the
headquarters of tho Puciflc department.
The number of desertions fiom tho Oregon
and Washington Territory legiments in
connection with tho fact that neither of
them have ever been full, will operate,
probably, to the consolidation of the two
into one. We understand thut Col. Stein
bergeV has, in anticipation of such action,
been very solicitous thut regiment
should bo filled up, even if dialtinir should
be leqnired to do it. In case of the con
snlidutinn of the two reiments, ono set of
