Surrender of Joseph.
Dispatches yesterday announce the
close of the Xez Perces war. General
titles intercepted the braves and
taught tlieni a lesson on the 30th,
which all good Indians will recollect
hereafter. The fight occurred near
Bear-paw mountain, and was a severe
one. Looking Glass, Joseph's brother,
and three other chiefs, together with
forty fighters were killed. Gen. Miles
lost twenty-three killed and forty-five
wounded. The news continues until
the 5th, when it is stated that Joseph
had surrendered, "and all the Camas
prairie murderers are now dead."

"Wear out !" but never let the rust
Of idleness corrode the trust
Your Maker gave : your part to play
In the great drama of 'To-day"
Is to deal justly ; aid the weak ;
Ever for right and freedom speak ;
Keep burning clear Truth's beacon light,
That Its soft radiance through the night
Be to the lost on life's bleak, moor
Like Bethlehem's star, that shone of yore,
Guiding the shepherds on their way
To where the child Redeemeer lay.
"Wear out I" 'tis nobler far to bear
On breast and brow the marks of care,
Scars of life's conflict bravely fought,
Patents of peerage fairly bought ;
Titles to claim in the fair dime
Of those who worship Truth sublime ;
E'en rf your feet have never trod
The narrow path that leads to God,
Avoid as death, the scorner's seatr
Nor let his sandals press your feet r
With contrite luearf, and tearf ul eye
Stand still while the elect pass by !
"Wear out 1" though stern your features grow,
Though raven locks be turned to snow,
On to-the front I nor laggard be,
With sturdy blows" comes victory !
Shame on the weak, the nerveless hand
That cxnnot grasp Truth's-shining brand,
That shrinks when from fair Freedom's tower
The toscln sounds the trial hour ;
That falls when justice calls to go.
"With battle axe and "bended bow,"
And prove, upon his native sod,
Hie. fealty to man and God !

examination revealed the pleasing tact
that the flue was full of honey conib

They took out a bucket and a half of
the sweet morsel, disturbed the nest
and started the fire anew. The bees

Looking back in the. hist jry of. our
Territory twelve or fifteen years, one
can but draw a contrast between, the
immigration of those times, and that
of the present. Then, all was hurry
and bustle. People who came here,
were generally lured by the prospect
of rapid accumulation of wealth, in
tending, when than purses were filled,
to seek some better country, in which
to enjoy their gains. How different
is it to-day. The steady stream of
immigration is composed of men seek
ing permanent homes in our midst.

deceitful allurements of gold mines,
but know that in our fertile prairies
there is much more sure and lasting
wealth. Such an immigration, is an
evidence of the healthy growth, of our
country, and to all such we bid a
welcome, knowing that we still hare
ample room for thousands-
Departed for Sitka..
From the Port Townsend Argus, October 5th.
The United States revenue cutter
Walcott, left here yesterday for Sitka,
to be present at the festivities to be
given during the'last of this month by
Sitka Jack to some four thousand In
dians of various tribes of Alaska. The
report in the Oregon and up-Sound
papers about serious-trouble at present
I in Sitka, is without any foundation,
as the last accounts report everything
The origin of this report, was the
fact that after the troous were with
drawn from Sitka, some of the young
I men of Jack's, tribe burned down a
small portion of the stockade fence
which separates the garrison from the
I Indian town, ami broke some windows.
This was. promptly reported and the
cutter Corwin was sent up. Captain
White told Sitka Jack that if he heard
any more complaints of depredations,
he would return and blow down the
Indian vSIage. Jack said, the stockade
was burned by some of his young men
but he won't; be responsible that no
more harm, should be done if Captain
White won't keep th& white residents
! from selling whiskey to his people.
There ia.no-trouble at present, nor is
any apprehended, unless the white
people sell whiskey to the Indians at
the intended "potlatch," and it is to
keep the peace that the Walcott is
to be present. But as a means of
fighting Indians, the cutter in her
present condition, is a lamentable
farce. She has but one gun and that
not irt first rate order, her other gun
was thrown overboard when she
I struck the reef at Cape Mudge last
winter and although the Department
have been repeatedly informed of
the inefficiency of the vessel, they
have not fitted her out, but have
X)romptly ordered her to Sitka with
no means of either offensivo or de
fensive warfare. Our patriotic and
energetic fellow townsman, H. L.
Tibbals, esq., has kindly loaned
Capt. Seldon the batteiy of guns
which were purchased at the Custom
house sale of the effects of the old
cutter Jeff. Davis- Fortunately, the
shot-for this battery?, nowforcjs -part?
of the ballast of the Walcott, and
P Capt. Selden has collected all the oys
ter and meat cans in town to be filled
with old scrap iron and sand, as can
H any real danger is apprehended,
on the arrival of the Cutter at Sitka,
she will return and a man-of-war will
be sent, but there is no apprehension
of such an emergency, and the farce
of sending the Walcott on a cruise for
hostile Indians without proper prepar
ation is not very creditable to parties
in Wash"ngton who have this matter
in chtirge. After the festivities are
over, the Walcott will return to this
Port. She will be absent four or live
Bear in mind the fact that it was nr c
the last of this month that Sitka Jack
was to have his grand potZafc7i, but the

The Spak Trade. Referring to the
loading of the ship Brown Brothers, at
Port Madison, -with spars for Boston,
the Intelligencer sa3s: "When this
cargo of spars is discharged at east
Boston, Mass., they will be gazed
upon in wonderment. The three
lower masts of the ship Brown Broth
ers cost standing in the forests of Can
ada 82.2U0. Only think of it. The
stnmpage for three trees, the largest
thirty-seven inches in diameter by
ninety feet long, being over 700 for
each tree. Add the cutting, liaulir g
and freight to Xewburyport, wheie
she was built, and they run up to near
a thousand dollars apiece. At any
thing near that rate it is safe to esti
mate the value of this vessels cargo,
when she shall arrive at Boston, at
over a hundred thousand dollars, con
sisting as it will, of 180 of these huge
spars, 200 splendid deck knees, 250,
000 feet of deck planking and 150
cords of wood. She was chartered for
$32,500. The charter party pays for
loading 62,050, making $35,150.
Knowing the approximate cost of her
cargo here, it will at once be seen that
the consignees will clear a nice little
sum. Ship owners andbu-lders of the
Pacific or of the east, would do well to
consider The difference in the cost of
shipbuilding material here and at the
east before arriving at the conclusien:
that shipbuilding on Puget Souml
won't pay. This cargo of sMpbuilding
material when discharged at the ship
yards of east Boston will induce some
of its-successful shipbuilders and heavy
men to correctly surmise that whore
that material came from is the pla.-e
for them to operate, and we predict
that within a year from the arrival of
the ship Brown Brothers in Boston
harbor, that a keel of a ship of her
size, or larger, will be stretched at one
or more of the doz m. available, places
on Pug;it Skund."
