THE MONROE DOCTRINE.
Prom our Eastern files we learn
facts relative to affairs of) tEe. Mexican
border,, says the S. P. CfaZi,"whicb in
dicate that four; 'Government has no
intention of allowing; the natlbfialily
of Ifexico' to be iaoHficed to the ra
pacity of the Gallic cock of France.
It appoars that at least eighty thou
sand soldiers of tbe TJoited States have
been sent to tbe Bio Grande. - As that
force is about equal to the total num
ber of voters in Texas, it is not ''at all
likely Ibat itjias been sent to that sec
tion for the'oxpreas parpoBe of keeping
Texas rebdls" Itf awe and subjection.
Those; troops, have, obi, either,' been

idea of making a holiday 'display of
muskets, or for tbe purpose of spread
eagle glory. . That such a large force
has been forwarded to tbe borders of
the Rio Grande i an. evidence that
our Government has tin Jer considers,
tiou matters looking to affairs beyond
our immediate national boundaries,
and warrants us in believing that it is
the intention' of the' Administration,
sooner or later,-to serve a notice to J
quit on Maximillian. Tbe operations
of France in; Mexico, from first to
last, nave oeen an insult to American
foetings and a menace against Ameris
can nationality..' Owing to our intes i
tinal troubles it has. been heretofore
almost impossible Mot ; th.'Iational
Administration to reseti,he great in.
suit offered to tne TJuited StateH bv
Napoleohin bis attempt to enhrono
a European monarch on. American soil
Yet because" we could inot resent the
insult a year or two ago; isnb reason
wny we 'BDouici not avenge it now, if
those jbo perpetrated it in- tbe first
instance continue to' above it at uh
with the bragadocia air which has thus
fur characterized French operations in
Mexioo. Our Government is long suf.
fering and-forbearing toward its ene
mies; yetovents hitherto have proved
that when It'd'o'es'put roVtVi is hand it
strikes heavily; they also proye that
tbe American Eagle never limit tens'
without it has made up its mind to act.
We therefore reasonably irfternret the
actum, of the" Government frf.iaaswing
large forces 6n the Mexican border, as
iiio uiuiiiiesiaiioQ oi, a aeterruination
to prevent ' NaDoleo'n ' ffrini mnlinr

The JStalmr mn&Hhm Idabo. Trade.
.,tff From th ldauo-World .
The Palles Mountaineer never tjres
in expatiating on tbe numberless ad
vantages of that oily over all other
towns io the facilities for transport .
tion and travel. The Chico road pro
daces a rigidity of nerve, indicative
of doubt atout the long comimrance
of the trade by way of the Columbia,
and of tbe permanence of the groat
city-rthe Bailee, itself. . rMany are the
schemes broached by Ibat industrious
andj ingenious journal, for tbe reten
tiorf Of the trade on the Canyon City
road. It remarks 1" "'-
I ?. For tbe info.rmotion of shippers, we state
that late advices from Umatilla report a gret
quantity of mercbandise piled np on thebeacb
awaiting transportation. Tbe few teams now
there have advanced tbeir rates and refuse to
lake treirht for less tbaa lOoents. Durable in
coin On lue-olbtr.band, at tbe Dalles, there
is aa abundance of teams that will gladly con-
tract -to deliver freight at Uolee, at from 8 to 9
cents, payable iu coio. Tbls fact, taken in
connectiun with tbe price charged from Dalles
tu Umatilla $15 per loo shows at a glance
which of tbe two points bold out. the greatest
inducements to shippers. Of course, ibis con-
ditlou of affairs Is steadily kept from tbe know
Irdge ef.owiiers of. quarts mills.. Arrived at
Porilttnd, freigbiers are at once recommended
to ship by, way of UmatiHay andl ignorant of
the country, tbey follow the advice thus given.
At the Dalles, when too late, the' shipper
discovers bis mistake, but all that then- re
mains for bim is to denounce those wbo mis-lead-bin.'
' " - t
On tbe direct -ronte to tbe mines; wttVan
excellent road by way of Canyon City, and tbe
difference in freight io our favor, we are
really surprised, that goods continue to be
shipped by out-of-the-way. places. ' Misrepre
sentation has In part brought aoout tbe-condi-lion
of affairs of wbicb we complain, but tbe
principal reason bas been our inaction and
failure to make, the most of. our natural ad.
Vantages Wheu will the people of tbe Dalles j
wake-up to their Interests?"
" in; continuation .of- this project of
uirecting ine traoo irom us natural
and legitimate 'course, via. Owyhee,
tne Mountaineer goes into steamboat
navigation. It says : ' , ' " ' '
r .'t It s beyond a doubt that with tbe coming
spring, we shall have a vteaniboat on tbe Up
per Snake, which will ply bet ween 01 i's Ferry
aiid a point beyond. Boise CitVj'. reducing the
laud travel froruoiie hundred and fifty to two
hundred miles. Already we have a siage line
to Canyon City, which ninkes the trip through
from the D illeH in 20 hours From that point tbe
slHge line can be extended to Old's Ferry, and
thence the steamer will laud pnssengers in
Boise City in eight or lea hours, When these
arrangements are completed, ' the entire land
travel by way of the Columbia River will be
made inside of two days.. When tbe Cbico
road beats this, it will be time enough
to talk about irt being the ouly route to the
miiK-e."" ' .. ...
If this were done, it would be a-very
good stroke of policy, and would .do
much, doubtless, toward the desired
result. ' To be successful however.it
should not be long deferred.
No Churches. The church-going
community! if any there be, are badly
on at present in this place... With the
exception of the Uatbolio churches at
several points in this county, there is
no church ot any kind now open for
reliftioue services. The building orig
inally erected for that purpose in Idaho
city stiir stands, being occupied as a
Court room, but no Minister of the
Gospel has proclaimed " glad ". or any
other kind pf. tidings from its pulpit
tor several months. There is no rro
toatant. church in , ihe, Boise. Basin.
