The House passed Council Memorial, asking an appropriation to complete Military Poad front Steilacoom to Van couver. Also the Council Pill making appropriation for expense of transpor tation of Territorial Amu; also nil act amending the charter of the l'uget Sound Woolen Manufacturing Com pany; also an act relating to the School Fund of King county : also a supple mental hill, to the act paying Sheriff Tucker for eare of Penitentiary con victs.

The House reconsidered the vote whereby they refused to concur, in the Council amendments to the hill amend atory ot the Port Townsend Town [ charter, and concurred therein. The Council Pill imposing a fine on Theatrical, Circus and other shotrx, with out having first obtained a license, be ing taken up, Mr. Clinc, moved to amend by exempting the Chapman family from the operations of the bill. Tin' Speaker ruled the Chapman family out of order, and that the amendment j could not be entertained. On motion of Mr. Phillips the hill was indefinitely postponed. The House then passed the bill fixing the boundary between Thurston and Sawamish, after which it went into committee of the whole, (Mr. Fergu son in the Chair), on the memorial for appointment of Judge Watson as In dian Agent. The House adopted as amendments in committee of the whole, that they thought the services of the Council were not sufficiently re munerated, and recommended their in crease, and in the event of Judge AS'at son not being appointed Indian Agent, he is recommended as Proctsionaf Gov ernor of Pritish Columbia. This lum bering the bill with amendments incon sistent with each other, which defeats tho measure, is not treat in s Judge Wat son with respect. If he is not entitled to Iv rr p.*irated from the influence ofj other agents whom he represents as jeal ous of his popularity, why kill it in this roundabout wav t The memorial as passed hy the ] louse is more beneficial to the Legislature than to the Judge, and as Provisional Governor he ought to veto it. After adopting the report of commit tee of the whole, and ordering it printed, the House adjourned. It is well tiie House refused to pass the bill, making a penalty for a Oifcils performance without taking out a license, or some of its distinguished members would have been amenable to that law.

The south line of Thurston county as pro posed, is the old north boundary of Lewis county. A bill was also handed in with the papers, which Mr. Ander son disclaimed as introducing. The Speaker announced the informal read ing, as the first reading of the bill. Mr. Howies of Clark and Mr. Hastings of Jefferson insisted upon the usual sus pension of the rules. Messrs. Hays and i'hillips of Thurston did finally secure u hearing for the county they were elected to represent, though one would suppose Thurston had repre sentatives from all sections of the Ter ritory judging by the proceedings. Judge ilays succeeded in getting the bill laid upon the table to be printed. The bill indemnifying Sheriff Field of Clark county for expenses in board ing prisoners, was amended and passed.

Jan. 21. —Mr. Hays—a me morial asking Congress to appropriate money, to secure proper attention to ami confinement of insane paupers, not citizens of Washington Territory, but who are caused to conic hither, and have no claims upon counties for sup port. There are a number of this kind of people frequently found in our towns upon the Sound, who find their way, or are brought here from other places, which our counties arc too poor to give support to, and yet humanity demands that they should receive attention and care. The memorial was referred to the committee on Judiciary. Mr. Clinc—a memorial for a Port of Delivery at Dunginess. Under a sus pension of the rules, read a third time and passed. , Tl ic declination of Mr. Gallagher to qualify as Public Printer, accepted by the House.

TUB ORIUIN OF " PENT-UP UTIOA."— Everybody has heard the lines ; li No pent-up t'tica contracts our powers, llut the whole boundless eontinent in ours." But very few people know the author, or in what poem they occur. The Portsmouth (X. H.) Journal says that they were written by Jonathan Mitch ell Sewcll, a Portsmouth poet, as an epilogue to Addison's play of Cato, on the occasion of its performance by an amateur company in that place in 177 K. The whole production was one of deci ded power. The spirit of the Revolu tion entered into even* expression. We give a few lines; Ami what now gleams with dawning rays at home. Onee blazed in full-orbed majesty at Home. Did Home's brave Senate noldy strive t'oppose The mighty torrent of domestic toes, The desperate perils of unequal war? Our .Senate, too, the same hold deed has done, And for a I'ato armed a Washington. Kino, then, my countrymen ! for fight prepare, Gird on your Words, and fearless rush to war ! For your grieved country nobly dare to die, And empty nil your veins for liberty. Xo pent-up I'tica contracts our powers, But the whole boundless continent is ours. ITtica, a town older than any in the vicinity of Carthage, was the place where Cato died. This fact, with the above extracts, will at once explain one of the most expressive quotations in our language—a quotation which has been made by the most distinguished orators, Mr. Webster among them. INFORMATION WANTED —Of Thomas Flynn, ft native of Baltimore, who was discharged from U. S. Army at Fort Hoskins, in Oregon, on Juno 11th, 1857.

Any information of him, dead or alive, may be sent to the Ar(/us at Oregon City, or to the Arch Bishop of Baltimore by means of some of the clergy of the Pacific Coast.—Papers ot Oregon, Washington Territory, British Columbia, and California, please copy. Oregon City, Jan, 17, 18(51. —Oregon Ar^us. Wbcn vice prevails, and impious wcu boir SMY.V, The ptvt of linnnr ir a priv.ite ct.ition. From Pierce County. The following is from a responsible man, residing in Pierce county, who avows himself ready to sustain by evi dence the charges he makes. Our col umns are open to " free discussion," and through them all may be heard on matters of Territorial interest. We must warn all who write, however, to avoid epithets and personal abuse. Steu.acoom, Jan. 24, 1861. En. STANDARD : Sir —When the sub mission of a free people whoso rights have been invaded increase in propor tion to the wrongs they have suffered —when, instead of rising to arms and resistance, they sink into obedience— the time must surely arrive when that submission will cease to be a virtue, and the spirit of fierce indignation so long slumbering in the bosoms of our fellow-citizens will cry for vengeance. " Let justice be done, though the heav ens should fall." Sir, in the name of two-thirds of the voters of Pierce coun ty, I speak. Justice, honor, and a de cent re.pcct for the opinions of a free people, demand that I should proceed; for their rights have been invaded, their liberties threatened, and the dark hour of tribulation is upon us. Our people through the ballot-box, delegated to their representatives a power which they had not the honesty to support nor the ability to protect, ami whose ignorance of justice is only equal to a morbid un willingness to do anything honorable. Hut a crime of the blackest dye lias been committed. The delegated power of our people has been usurped, their sa cred rights wrested from them, the fetid odor of things surround them; but the day of judgment is at hand, the field of pollution will cease in a few days, ren dering further corruption impotent from the creatures of the people, at whose hands a terrific vengeance awaits them. A decent respect for the common seme of our people forbids that I should dwell at much length on the great ad vantages accruing to us from the loca tion of the capital at Olvmpia. They see and feel it. All the important ele ments which give power to a great na tion we possess on Puget Sound. The superiority of our agricultural lands are not questioned, our fisheries inexhaust able, and our coal mines only require capital and labor to give employment to a great fleet of shipping. England and Franee acknowledge the immeas urable superiority of our tiniberover all other, and as those nations increase their ships, so is their demand 011 us felt for masts and spars. It is further more conceded that nowhere 011 the globe can be found so many natural canals and harbors where the shipping of all nations could ride in security, pro tected as it were by the hand of Provi dence. Add to th'is a healthy climate, and T ask what other country otters her people so many rare advantages? Now when we consider that all those great elements embrace an area on the Sound between the head waters at Olympia, Port Townsend, Island and Whatcom counties, we look in vain for some explanation from our representatives for voting the capital to the frontier of Oregon. But the day is not yet lost. Something can bo done—the people are with us. Arise! then, Olympia; take the lead in this great work; and if there be a noble Grecian among you, lot him to arms, and like the brave Le onidas haste to the Pass of Thcrmopy hc, meet the robbers ofonrrightsin the gap, and show them that the hand that deposited the ballot which elected them to office can grasp the dagger to pros trate them lifeless at our feet; for jus tice to our cause and the first laws of nature demand it. But what say our representatives to all this? Are they not a partv to an infamous bargain and sale, made'to swallow itby a lobby-mem ber and his grejit master? Have not some of them been pledged in conven tion to support certain measures, which they have not done? Can some of them sleep at night and not dream of Congress, champaigno and mileage. Who is it that expects a complimenta ry vote for M. C., and who is the great Mandarin of the motley party? Ah! political parasites, you and your acts are known and will be duly recorded at the proper time and place. Cease then, you reptiles, to do evil, and return to the shades of perdition tosoek the plea sures of a premature end, that you may die without a blessing, as you have lived without virtue. PETEII PIXDAR. « LITTI.E GIRLS: —There is something inexpressibly sweet about little girls.— Exchange. And it grown on 'em as they get big ger. There now.—Prendre. A British View of Secession. The London Times, holds tlic follow ing language: If, contrary to probability, South Car olina should rebel—what then? If she is bent upon trying the chances of war, she will, of course, be beaten out of the field. She has neither men nor money enough for war. Her white population is always declining relative ly to the black. Even with allies, she could not fight for a single day without complete discomfiture and humiliation. If she is allowed to secede without op position, how can she subsist? Poor in resources, helpless against enemies, at the mercy of her own slaves, with u small aristocracy in debt, and the rest of her white population ignorant and degraded beyond precedent; with no money to buy a ship or coal a steamer, her lands wearing out, and no manu factures—what can she do to live? Some people say: "Let her try." Sin* is turbulent and troublesome. *\V"e«halt be well rid of her; so give her her wish !" This is more easily said than done; but it will not become a practi cal question. AVhy should she resort to either supposition when she cat! simply go oti as she is? She lias, as we have said, no grievance and nor " cause." She is in every way a gainer by the Union, and iu fact could not ex ist without it. As everybody knows this who knows anything about her, the more quietly she acquiesces in her turn of political defeat, the better she will preserve her dignity. THEODORE PARKER'S TO MIS. —The Florence correspondent of tlio N. V. Times, writes as follows: " The Swiss Protestant Cemetery, under tlie shade' of cvpress trees and the gray old walls of Florence, is interesting to Ameri cans, as well as to pilgrims from other countries where the religion of Luther MHI otlur Reformer prevails. There the dust of a number of our country men, cut ott' while faraway from friends and home, has tound its last repose. The body of Theodore Parker lies in that hallowed inelosure. He was the last one buried, and probably the most illustrious of all who rest there. 1 re member to have heard a foreigner—who knows our countrv well—say, when Theodore Parker died, ' It seems to me that in his death, America has lost her most brilliant intellect.' That there i» truth in such an opinion we are all in clined to acknowledge. A simple and tasteful monument has been put up at the grave, it bears this inscription: •TiiKonoitK PARKER. born at Lexington, Mass., t'nitcil States of America, Aujr. 24, 1810. Diet! at Florence, Mitv 10, 18ii0.' " No Hope of Hei,p from France or. 15 it i tain. —Those Southerners who have boasted that Louis Napoleon won Id be prompt to recognise the independence of the Cotton States, and if need he, of forming an alliance offensive and defen sive with them, have been taken aback all at once by the late act of the French Emperor, in sending to Commander MotKt of the navy an autograph letter, complimenting him on the successful exploits he has performed in seizing vessels employed in the slave trade. Their hopes of encouragement are even less from the English Government.- Later from the Atlantic Side 1 . St Louis, Dee. 28.—Senator Baker had a warm reception at Springfield, Il linois, on the 27th. James C. Conkling delivered a reception address, in the' Court House. Baker's reply occupied three quarters of an hour, lie express ed earnest hopes of Union, and discard ed all idea of a Pacific Republic. David Wilmot, who had also arrived at Springfield, will also be in Mr. Lin coln's Cabinet. Different members will visit Springfield in turn; . A Democratic State Convention is called to meet at Springfield on the 16th January, to confer regarding the exist ing national crisis. An enthusiastic meeting was held at Memphis on the 27th December. Re solutions were passed opposing sepa rate secession and coercion, and favor ing a convention of the Southern States.- A convention of mechanics and work ing men was held in Louisville on the 27th December, when strong Union resolutions were adopted in favor of the National Working Men's Convention,- and discountenancing ultra politicians. An informal meeting of merchants, meml)erß of the bar, and others, was held at Barnum's Hotel, Baltimore, on the night of the 27th. The meeting was of conservative, Union-loving men. The fact that the proceedings were se cret gave rise to numerous reports that, the meeting was in favor of secession.
