There are no real indications of any per
manent impiroyement at "present with re?
gsrdto money matters, but the summer
coming will undoubtedly buoy up the state
. C affairs to certain extent, and if the far
mers do all they can' do next fall in sowing
wheat, the following harvest will make times
r better again in Oregon. Until then there
u ho immediate danger, only to those who
bavipguembarked in ( business with little
capital ; who will, many of them, be most
assuredly fejled by this "impudent fellow
Tight Times"! but all that will ne.only
. for the benefit of the "rest of mankind."
We can not all subsist on a "few loares and
aftw fishes" aa could the multitude in days
f yore. c So let those who have to be sao
rificed this time take courage that the boor
of Jtheir prosperity is in the future and will
" eoroe let them pick their flints and try ft
again,; The' different kinds of business at
present are' as prostrate as any loafer could
. reasonably sk. " The merchants stoll about
here and there walk from their counting
rooms to their residences, and rice versa
while their clerics deal in pitch wood and
' beads with the . Indians. Produce? dealers
of all kinds touch it gently, as if they
were fesrful of being overwhelmed. 'Most
of the steamboat are still running. , Some
of them do not make regular trip, howev
er, from the fact that it will not pay.- The
Franklin, on the Upper river is laid np ; and
although the Gazelle is yet most undeniably
afloat, she has not recovered her lost steam-
works' notwithstanding the 8th of Feb. is
- past and gone. We understand that the
slenu wdl apply, legal steam to her in a few
days. The lower river boatswe believe are
isllrunnlngi and a few of them are making
eeine money. All kinds of mechanical ac'
tion ' is ' conducted at present on the ilovi-
' prttturt principle, as it has bxn $r months
tpast, and if there m any increase in activity
it 'is to ns jBnperceivable. ..Bat, after all,

blown off, and otherwise terribly mutilated.

Tle'New York, papers chronicle the fact
that Johal MifcheK the ' Iridh patriot," has
withdrawn from the pittzen. He assigns
as among his reason for resigning the edtor
ial chair that his ardous labors have severely
affected his eyes. But this is not the true
reason why John Mitchel gave up the Citr
tzen. The real case of his withdrawal U
the fact that he' has" outraged and disgusted
the American people, and he knows it. He
made a great and siirnal failure. When he
landed in the-jUnited States, every fond was
extended towards him to give hinva cordial
welcome. He came--from banishment and
darkness: to liberty and light. The chains
of oppression had eaten into his very heart
strings, and be spoke of the .cruelty of tbe
mother country as a 'man who had suffered.
But the trouble, was, John Mitchel was
an agitator.,). It was no moving, burning
love for his" rftc that induced him to n-bel.
He loved power, knd his'hopo was to secure
it-He failed, and was sent - into exile.
As soon as he set his foot on the soil of free
America, he undertook t teacli the Amer
ican people their' duty towards England and
the other Kuropean powers. The country
that had received him with so warm a wcl
come could hardly be expected to-under-take
a crusade in bis behalf. The poople
of America still kept about their business,
and refused . to chastiae England for her
conduct'y whereat rJohn got wrathy, and
