FRIDAY MOBXIXG, MAY 6, 18(11.
Coii. BiLDiif, Agent for the ante of the Slate
School Lands, is now at tbe Dalles, and wilt
take pleasure la Riving settlers and all others
In Mimobiam. Tbe firemen of Sao Francis
co are about to erect a splendid monument
over the remains of George H. Hossefross,
late Chief Engineer of the Fire Department.
. Hon. J. R. MoBbidi has tendered Master
thanes weweu me appointment to tne u. .
Naval Academy, to fill an existing vacancy.
The youth has accepted the Appointment, and
v ill leave for the East at an early day.
Till Immiouation. A private letter, dated
Burlington. Iowa, March 18th, says : " There
is going to be a very large emigration to Ida-
l.o this Spring j I think that it wilt be the
largest that ever crossed the plains."
It is said that since the call upon California
for ten regiments of troops, the number of
cripples, and persons afflicted with rheuma
tism, and other disabling complaints has fear
fully increased. It would seem that voting
the last man means every body else, but never
comes borne to tbe individual.
Political Spiakinq. Messrs. Donnell and
Stevenson will speak at tbe Court House, on
to morrow (Saturday) evening, on tbe Issues
that now divide the Americon people. Tbe
meeting Is to be a joint one of union men
find democrats, and it Is desirable that there
be a full turn out. .
J. E. Johnson, tbe celebrated vocalist, as
sisted by the accomplished MisBes WebBter.
nod Miss Minnie Gillespie, a highly promising
Toung lady, will give a musical entertainment
nt Moody's Hail, on to-morrow (Saturday)
evening. As a comic singer Johnson has
scarcely an equal, and the whole performance
promises to merit tbe patronage of our amusement-loving
Om ths Stomp. Governor Gibbs has taken
the stump, and made a number of effec
tive speeches in tbe Valley. His Excellen
cy has a large number of friends on this
ride of tbe mountains who would be glad to
hear him express bis views in relation to cur
rent events. The Governor may be less bril
liant than some of his competitors for Sena
torial honors, but those who know bim think
that be is decidedly the man to tie to
CxLismti. Tbe Chinese residents of Vic
toria lately, through a committee, presented
an address to Governor Kennedy, in praise of
the equity of the Coloninl Government, which
they contrast with tbe alleged injustice of
California in tbe treatment ol their country,
men. Their number tbey compute at 2,000
Many of them have been successful, and nil,
they say, are thrifty as well as highly loyal to
Tai Assay Okfici. Our Portland friends
find It difficult to understand why Congress
proposes to locale tbe Assay office at the Dalles.
Tbe reason is obvious. This is the point at
which the mining trade centres, and i be As
cay office is designed tor the accommodation of
this class of citizens. Had our neighbors ap
plied lor aid to enable tbem to save their ap
ple crop, we should never have entered tbe list
Annual them, but when it comes to an Assay
office, we naturally prefer to bave it located
nt point where it will be of convenient ac-
cess to miners. In this sentiment Congress
concurs, and hence tbe Dalles Is to have the
Assay office. t
Justlv Said. Alluding to tbe right go
ahead course of tbe President, tbe Nevada
(ChI ) Gazette says tbat be never makes a
movemeul of any kind, involving a change in
the policy of the Government, which is cal
culated to produce a profound sensation until
he has first prepared tbe public mind to re
ceive it and to recognize its propriety. If be
finds one ol his Generals going too fast in
matters which ure the exclusive province of
the Executive Department ot the Government,
however correct in theory bis uctioa toiay be,
be restrains bim, because the public mind has
noi been schooled to receive such action with
favor. All the urging, coaxing, wheedling
and llireaLeuiug which may be used by bis
friends. cannot force bim into any act not
fctriotly in consonance with his itfeas of pro
priety,, apd all the abuse of bis friends and
enemies cannot make,, bim swerve a hair's
breidlb from what be esteems to be right and
RADICALS AND CONSERVATIVES.
A cotemporary bas an article on tbe Issues
of the day, which so perfectly accord's willl
all that fails appeared in these columns, iiiitl
we deem it proper to present It to otlr readers.
Contradtirig the racicals with the conserva
tives, the writer says, tbe former are greatly
In tbe minority, though of course tbey make
tbe most noise. What they are after it would
be hard to say. We doubt if they know them
selves what tbey exactly desire to Accomplish.
They do not appear to bave any definite plan
to carry out, and well defined principles to
guide tbem. Their course is wholly on tbe
destructive order. Opposition for the sako of
opposition seems to be their motto. They op
pose tbe re-nomination of Mr. Lincoln ; they
oppose most of tbe leading measures of his
administration ; tbey find fault with every
thing that Is done, yet iail to point out a man
ner in which things can be better managed.
The great numerical strength of tbe radical
force is in the Northwestern States and Mis
souri. There they most do agitate, grumble
and growl, with occasional aid from the New
York Tribune; and other sheets of a like char
acter. It is noticed that the copperneads feel
quite jubilant over tbe course pursued by the
radicals, and joyfully express their belief that
the radical opposition will secure tne defeat
of Lincoln For be it known that the copper
beads look upon tbe re-nomination of Lincoln
as equivalent to his re-election, and tbey had
rather lose what souls tbey bave to lose than
to see him President for the second term, for
tbey know that under his admistration there
can be no prospect of final success for tbe
rebels. Tbe fussy, fugacious Fremont is a
great pet of a portion of the radicals, and
therefore is just now patronised and encour
aged by tbe copperheads, who wish bim to run
agiinst their pet candidate, Gen McClellan.
We fear that there is less of patriotism than
passion In tbe propelling powers of the radi
cals. Patriotism does not keep up a continual
stream of far it finding against everybody, and
everything that is done to save tbe country, as
the radicals and copperheads do A patriot
ic man will not set down and let the nation go
to ruin or abuse those administering its affairs
simply because in all things bis advice is not
followed. One great cause of complaint on
tbe part of the radicals is tbe President's Am-'
nesty Proclamation. Tbey do not like it, neith
er do the rebels. The radical idea appears
to be that those once in rebellion should nev
ei be allowed the privilege of citieenshlp in
the United Statej an idea more distinguisn
ed for its vindictiveness than for its wisdom.
It is also remarked that the rebel leaders do
not think that any of those engaged in rebel
lion should be citixens of tbe United Slates
again. That radicalism, rebelism, and cop
perhesdism should be so near in harmony on'
many of the leading points, Is the stronges
reason in the world for Union men to beware
of radicalism. Our duty is plain and simple,
to use our utmost endeavors to crush out tbe
rebellion, and re establish order In tbe dis
tracted country, all tbe while avoining irrita
tion and unnecessary side issues, for they
only serve to complicate and make matters
worse As for the question of slavery, that
is now settled as much as it can be until the
war is over. As for all other questions Mr.
Lincoln's plan of reconstruction and amnesty
is the best yet brought forward, and the only
one we can with safety adhere to

TRIAL TRIPBTlAili:ii YAKIMA.
At 9 o'clock yesterday morning, the loco-
rflb'tive, attached to a single passenger car,
kh the Railroad Bridge, with nil her colors
flying, and the usual Indications of a day of
festivity. Tbe occasion of si! this display was

of the 0. S. N. Company, who' were here with

ron-borse bad a full head of steam on, and
passed over tbe road with unusual speed, ar
riving at Celilo in 35 minutes from the time
of starting. Here we found the new steamer
gaily decked out in flags, mil waiting for her
distinguished visitors. These on board, at ex
actly ten o'clock 'be lines were cast off, and
the steamer beaded up stream. Once fairly
upon the waters, the Takima fully vindicated
ber claim to be regarded as one of the fleetest
boats in the Company's service. In the face
of a stiff bead-wind, and a rapid current, she
made the run to John Day Rapids, a distance
of eighteen miles, in one hour and fifty-five
m'nates. There ber bow was turned for borne,
and she made the return trip tn fifty-five min
utes. Of those who were present, we may no
tice Capt. J, 0. Ainsworth, President of tbe
Company, and Messrs. Reed, Kamtn, and 01m
stead, of tbe Board of Directors. Tbe Invi
ted guests embraced quite a liberal delegation
from San Francisco, including R. M Jessnp,
Vice President of the California Steam Navi
gation Company, dipt. Dull, Mr. Benson, and
one or two other gentlemen whose names we
fail to recall. From Portland, we bad Col.
Belden, Messrs. Green, Leonard, King, Good
win, Lappeus, Harris and others. Celilo was
represented by R. H. Mallory, Agent for the
Company. The Dalles was represented by P.
Dodge, Agent of tbe Company, John Bra-
zee, Chief Engineer, A. W, Buchanan, ol Wells,
Fargo k Co., and W, H. Newell, of tbe Moun
taineer. On the trip op, as also on the return,
tbe wine flowed freely, toasts were drank,
songs snng, and all went "merry as a marriage
bell." Tbe Californiaus on board were- par
ticularly loud in the expressions of their ad
miration of tbe boat, and all were unanimous
in tbe opinion tbat tbe Yakima is tbe finest
stern-wheel craft that ever kissed tbe waters.
Having said thus much of the triol trio, we
have only to add that the Yakima is now ready
to take her place on the line, and tbat she will
b commanded by Capt. Fellon, a gentleman
who bag bad great experience in the manage
ment of river craft.
