According to present advices, the oooan steamer far Portland and Victoria, left San Fransisco yesterday, the nth. This steamer goes to Victoria first, and consequently "will not be due at f orlland before Tuesday nettu Tn 'Okionta. -We yesterday spent a leis ure "half-hour in examining the steamer One- onto, as she appears in ber new rig. Fassing to the upper deck, the first thing that 'attract ed attention was the smoking saloon ot'Tex- as," which in this boat is a highly ornamental feature. Here the patuter, Mr. O. 5. Savage, bad an opportunity to display ibie skill, and certainly the graiqing'df the panels and doors is tbe most perfect work of the kind we have ever npnn. Onnntnc frnm the tfRVwaa" la tin I Purser's offioe, neatly tfitted ip, 'and affording onr friend Knaggs ample room for the tran saction of bis business. Next is the Express room, also neatly fitted up, and adjoining tbe Captain and Engineers' staterooms, all neatly and even elegantly finished. Fassing down, we enter tbe main eatoon, which, like all oth- er parts of tbe boat designed for tbe use of passengers, is elaborately furnished, liext is the Ladies' Saloon, the floor ot wbich is cov ered with velvet carpet, and provided with ottomans, sofas, mirrors, and, in fact, every thing that can by anjr possibility contribute to the comfort of lady passengers. At tached to and opening into tbe saloon, is two retiring rooms, neatly fitted up with baths, wasbstanda, and every 'Convenience usually found in (lie moettfhorougbly furnish ed sleeping apartment. Passing out, we next come to tbe Ladies' toilet, which is fitted up With mftrhl a vraah.atnnAa nWt :...... i.n :M I the arrangement of wbich excellent taste is displayed. Leaving the toilet and passing to tho opposite side of tbe boat, we have what may be termed tbe private parlor, which is fitted up in superb style. Here the furniture 'is all plush, and we can ecaroely conceive of j a neater or more pleasant apartment for tbe I accommodation of a select party Passing forward, we have the barber shop, something mew in Columbia River boats, and a luxurv which old travelers can appreciate. On tbe opposite side, and occupying a corresponding .position of tbe boat, is the pantry, which like All other parts of tbe boat, is neatly and ap iprqpriatejy fitted up. Thus far, our descrip. tion'bas been exclusively confloed to tbe up- per deck, and more especially to that part of tbe boat designed exclusively for the use of passengers. On the lower deok are two taag- nificent engines which furnish tbe motive power, and huge boilers wbioh 'Would seem capable of jroduolog steam enough lo.prqpel the "Great Eastern." The first raipression.in looking down the lower deck is that of the vast space dovotod to the stowing of freight. On inquiry, we learned that three hundred tons of freight can be packed away on this deck, without crowding, and that five hundred tons can be carried with-all ease. The 0. S. N. Company own many boats, but in tbelr whole fleet there is not a single craft that will begin to compare with the Ontonta, whether in tbe matter of ornamentation onia capacity for carrying freight and passengers. -Having laid thus much of tbo boat, we can only add that she is commanded by Capt. John McNul- tjj, with George Knnggs as Purser two gen- tfemen who are universally popular with tbe traveling publto. TIMELY ADVICE. Some one has said, it is always best to watch your neighbots. In fact, not to let them stir without watching. They may do something wrong if yon do. To be sure; you never knew them to do anything very bad, but it may be on your account they have not. Perhaps, if I it had not been for your kind care, they might have disgraced themselves and families a long time ago. Therefore, do not relax any effort to keep them where they ought to be ; never mind your own business that will take care of itself. Then is a man passing along be is looking over the fence be suspicious of him; perhaps toe contemplates stealing something soroe'of these dark nights; tbere is no knowing what queer fancies he may have got into bis head. If you find any symptoms of aty one passing out of the path of duty, tell every one else that you can see, and be particular to see a great many. It is a good way to circulate such things, though it 'may not benefit yeur- sell or any -oae -else parttcvrarly. Co keep something going silence is a dreadful thing; though it is said tbere was silence in Heaven for the space of half a tour, do not let any such a thing occur on earth :; it -would be too much like Heaven for the inhabitants of this mundane sphere. If, after all your watchful care, you cannot see anything out of the way in any one, you may be sure 4t Is irot because tbey have not done anything bad ; perhaps, fa an unguarded moment, you lost sight of thorn throw out bints that tbey are no better than tbey should tie that you should not wonder if people found out what they were after in a while, tbea they may not arry their beads so high. Keep it agoing, and some one will take the hint and begin to foelp after a while then tbere will be music, and everything will work to a charm. Carry this system into politics, and even although von never rise vouraelf. vou will at least bave tbe' satisfaction of keeping down those to whom you are opposed. It your neighbor becoming prominent, in fact, arising man, and you can find nothing in bis charac ter or life to assail, then as a last resort, whis per it around that he isn't "sound." You needn't te'll in what he fa not ound. Be sure that your story is carried, and be fqu&Tly sure that it gathers as It travels, and by tbe time itia fairly put In circulation, this lack of sound ness, if a politician, will be held to mean that be is not "reliable on tbe Union question." It matters not that the party against whom you have thus instilled your poison is true to his country as tbe needle to the pole, you have gained your point, and in politics, as in everything else, there is nothing like success, CITY TICKKT. Mr. Editor : Now that the people of Dalles City.are looking about for suitable persons to fill fhn rtv nflipAa r o r m i t a in an rrnrpat tliA following ticket: for Mayor, ILemsel Lyon:; Marshal, Capt.

We have reliable information that the copperheads of Oregon just now are greatly exorcised about a propo sitton looking 'to the establishment -of a first class copperhead newspaper at Portland, Bush, it is said, bas been consulted about the I matter, and is willing to lend 'bis aid, provided Ths delegates from Umatilla county are not Instructed on the question of the District Judgeship, as stated by the Portland papers Qat cotemporaries when they steal their iteme Ihould endeavor to steal them correctly.' 'One and nossiblr two of the delegates have ex pressed a preference lor Judge Wilson, but they areuotiiostructed. Thobi who .complain that onr navy bas ac complrshed nothing will do well to make a note of the fact that, .inoe4be war broke out, 1,328 blockade runnere (have been captured, of which number there -ware .64.1 schooners, 479 steamers, 181 sloops, 80 brigs, 26 barks, 15 ships, and about 100 smalieroraft.

PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRANTS. Wilson Flint, an "original" republican, wri ting from Washington under a late date, has the following reference to prominent aspirants for the Presidency : , Within a short time tbere have been quiet. but very extensive movements among the German voters to advance the interests of Gen, Fremout so as to make him the radical liber ty candidate. This movement indicates two things bis wonderful hold on that patriotic and large class of our naturalized citizens, and that the German vote is not inclined to go for a conservative candidate, .'t is even reported that Gen. Fremont bns threatened to to run as an independent candidate in rase of the domination or Mr. Lincoln. I dout know upon what authority this report is made but it is freely quoted in political circles, and is calculated to do great harm to Mr. Lincoln's prospects of a re-nomination, because the Un ion Convention will take the same view of the matter as the Convention did which nom inated Mr. Lincoln. The Chicago Convention of I960, was compoed of a large majority or original ttienas ot Uov. bewara, but when they got together, they began to consult upon the qcetftiffn'oT availabilily, and the more the matter was discussed, the stronger grew the conclusion th ait Howe wore certain influences in the iremablican party which would net Rive him a ram warm and earnest support? so he was seVasrde, beoHMse Vhe fnembers ef the Con vention desired above till wings torcct the candidate tbey came there to nominate. Wtiile it is improbable that Mr. Fremont s friends will be sufficiently strong to tiold tbe balance of power so as to defeat Mr. Lincoln in tbe Convention, they still are known to command votes enough to give tbe electron to tbe opposition, or prevent an election by tlx people, unless their demands are respected by tne uonveolion. While it would seem, fey tl aclion of the Legislatures of several of tire states, that Mr. Lincoln s nomination was aL most a foregone conclusion, it must not be concealed that there are powerful influences being organized in the Union party which make bis prospects a matter of considerable doubt. It is evident th it Mr: Lincoln goes into the contest against the field, and all other aspiring gentlemen will naturally combine aKa'n8t "'m' Dbdnkkn Senatobs. A correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial has the following on tbe habits and conduct of the copperhead Senatois, in Washington : "McDougall, of California, and Richardson, of Illinois, are tbe only habitual drunkards of the senate. McDougall is harmless in bis cups. He goes out horseback riding, falls in to tbe gutter, and the small boys gather around bim and have a little fun at his expense. He never troubles tbe Senate chamber with his presence. Richardson, however, is disgust- ing with bis bacchanalian revelries always obtrudes nimself upon tbesenate when scarce ly able to stand erect always, unfortunately tor uiroseli and lor bis state, in bis seat to be pointed at from tbe galleries, and have bis name given to tbe oft-repeated question, ' Who Is that drunken fellow over there T " A CtflEENBAC'tt.
