THE WASHINGTON STANDARD. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1861. Th« ( ■m»lt Khali br Pn wnfd. Oar Mails Again. In our issue of this paper of Sept. 7tli, we intimated that the Postmaster at this plaee had not discharged his duty as was expected of him hy the plain requirements of his official obli gation. The intervening fortnight has afforded instances innumerable which go to show that the Postmaster is either sadly incompetent to fulfill the trust re posed in him, or that he is influenced by those who are striving to derive some benefit from the future disposition of the mail service. We arc slow to be lieve that the Postmaster could be in duced to further the ends of those who would defraud the Government did 1.0 know their design to be such, yet on the other hand, it is almost impossible to believe that he can be so blindly ig norant as to suppose for one moment that had he availed himself of the means at his disposal that his action would not have received the unqualified sanc tion of the postal department. We are almost compelled to believe that, inexperienced as he is, he has been taught to consider the transporta tion of the mails a subject for party per terseness, and, like his illustrious ad viser, is determined to go out of office with a kick. The very facts of the case are such as require no explanation. The postal enactments are entitled to the same de gree of respect as others, and the law says that the mail service oh the Sound shall bo performed in steamships. Such service was available , but the Post master did not choose to accept it, al tho'thc interests of the whole Sound arc depressed and business paralyzed for the waut of regular steamboat intercourse. "Wc have in our possession the volumin ous correspondence which bas passed between the steamboat owners and the Postmaster, yet we cannot find a sin gle clause wo deem to be sufficient upou which to base the unwarrantable action ot the latter. As was stated in our issue of the 7th, he made the avow al that if " Messrs. Fleming and Scran ton would agree they could take the mail* at once," and without any specified reservation to avail himself ot other ser vice should any one propose to carry the mails on terms more " to the interest of citizens along the route, and the ad vantage of the department." The use of snch an expression the Postmaster will not dare deny, although Scraiiton in a circular to the public states that lie "desires nothing of this Administra tion." The terms, "if Messrs. Flem ing and Scranton would agree," were precisely those advaiu-ed by Mr. F. Besides, if Scranton "de*ired nothing from this Administration" then why those conclaves lietween Scranton, the P. M. and two or three others? Why does Scranton thrust upon the public his feeble defences of the Postmaster, in the shape of circulars ? Why the astonishing disclosure that the mails would not be given the Anderson, unre servedly, until Mr. Fleming and Scran ton should agree ? Are the private feel iugs of two men to influence the Post master in the discharge of his duty ? The loop-hole out of which the P. M. now attempts to escape is this: lie maintains that he ''did not feel author ized to enter iuto any agreement w hich should preclude this office from entering into any arrangement that would insure to the people ot the Souud • temi-weckly mail." Now Mr. Flem iar'f prnpwitinn VM befii* him. in whieb W*» a offering to 1 JITV the trail *emi-weekly. t-> which Mr. Rr>if')rv] in his L-t Irtter ca!l« >1 tli** ]'iNtnu»trr » atttiiti- u. The ler. thus driven to lli« wall, tell# Mr. I»radt<»rd that he wiU be cui»|«e4lod to "eon-ult' before a filial ancwer isgiven; and alter ctm>ulutkNi the P«>»tin*<ii r deliU-rately a •tut-# to the cou.-!u-ion that lie •• cannot. under the authority to pr-»--iire tetnjK>rarr wnii*. enter into any contemplating a s.r \i« .• t-» o>min< iMe in the t itan-. Il«*r • our Po-tmaMer riMuiuit* liitiKlf. In hi* reply t«» Mr. Fieming':* letter pro p«-.ng a Hiui-* wk!v *ervice he virtu ally rejitted tiiat offer, ami u«w dwr week* afterward. when cmiervd. lie humbly a«k»to h-allnKitil') •• con-ult. aii>! then give* il a% hi* tit hi* ratr «»j --i.>n that tlw* rva«<»n lie rejected the •etui-weekly M»ITH\' t»ur »nk* ago wa* beeause he **did not fee! author ized to rnter into any arrange n.« nt- i outcmplatiiig a service to commence in the future." We trust that the jieople will now perceive exactly where the hlatne lie* for the present prostration ot business upon the Sound. The tact tli.it a notori ous '• hiiicv man.*' hv the uameol Scran • • toll, who has sat like si nightmare upon the coinineree of the Sound for the past eight years, has much to say upon the subject, docs not lighten the Postmas ter's accountability. This man had concocted a plan by which he fondly hoped to ahstraef from tlie public treas ury the modest sum of #IO,OOO per an num—fi>i• his influence. Scranton eame here with a letter in his pocket from Mr. Geo. Wright, of San Francisco, with an agreement by which Wright was to perforin a semi-weekly service to Whatcom for §30,000, and pro rata to Victoria. Scranton is sent to pro cure the service for Mr. Wright, and lie, the agent, has the magnanimity to to demand the contract at 35,000 with pro rata to Victoria, the surplus to go as whisky-money for himself. This ho did, and at tha tituo tohl the Post muster that Wright was to receive but S3O, 000 and pro rata to Victoria for the ser vice he was to perform, and that the Postmaster must give him (Scranton) the contract in Mr. Wright's name for $35,000. This man Scranton knew lie had an inexperienced subject to deal with, and with the assistance of several ex-Judges —who gave nti "opinion" the same day that one of their number was en titled to preside over the present term of the District Court—it is not sttrpris gin that our Postmaster should become a tool, unwittingly no doubt at first, of the man who boasts of bribingnicinbers of Congress. These advisers are nior ally to blame, and not the Postmaster. We have now given a candid, unprej udiced view of the matter receiving fa vor from neither party. We ask our friends on the Sound, those whose in terests have boon so ruthlessly outraged, those who are aware of the low, de praved conduct of Scranton here and elsewhere, to bestow the blame upon the proper source. "SECEDED." —Mr. J. 11. Slater has withdrawn from tho editorial control of tho Corvallis (Ogn.) Union. He says that he leaves the editorial tripod with "few regrets." We arc not surprised that he is rejoiced to get out of the Jeff Davis boat. Mr. P. J. Maloue is bis successor, and the paper is to re main " sccosh." A Row ix THE CAMJ*. —An exchange says: "The Governor of Georgia, in an official proclamation made by him, charges that the J. Davis Government has no regard for State rights; that it is iu tavor of establishing a mnnarchiul government; and he directs the dis bandinoiit of a brigade of Georgia troops." QITEK. —The Vanconrcr Chronic?* says the whole number of vote* ca«t at the late California election f 1.770! It dollar* were east iu place of ballot* here, we should object to having the Chronicle man fount the balloit. fj* The Oregon Gazette, • treason di**cmiuator, has an article a column iu length headed—"Our Dwtiny." We believe an idea could be conveyed by a single line auajicnded from a gal lows. L ADIEU' FAIR. —The ladies of the First Presbyterian Church in Portland held a Fair on the evening of the 16th inst., the proceeds of which was ap plied for the benefit of the Church. 00-The Oregon Gazette says that Capt.

The future of our State is no longer a matter o;*speculation. It is certain and fixed. Tliere will he no civil com motion here—no contending armies, and no disturbances of any kind what soever. We congratulate our citizens on the happy turn which events have taken ; our course for the future will he upward and onward. We have not data sufficient to enable us to arrive even at an approximation of the vote east. It is prohahle that between 50,- 000 and (10,000 votes were polled for Stanford. AnniVED. —The schooner (froiclcr, Capt. Harrington, arrived at this place on Monday last. The steamer Jicsulutc arrived on Sat urday, bringing freight for our mer chants, and others, from ship Muxsa clm-u'lts. The steamer Eliza Anderson, Capt. Wallace, arrived Thursday morning with freight from steamship Sierra Me viuta. FROM TUB MIXES. —We have boon shown a letter from the Ncz Perees region, written to a gentleman here, giving a favorable view of the mines. The letter predicts a tremendous rush next summer, and says the best mining localities are on South Fork and Sal mon river. SUSPENDED. —Tho S. F. Times, the paper which a few days before the elec tion in California withdrew the name of Stanford from its columns and in serted that of Conn ess, has suspended publication. Tho summersault has placed it beyond tho power of resur rection. INCENDIARISM.— Tho court-house at Albany, Ogn.. was destroyed by fire on the morning ot tho 10th instant. The papers and records of the most im portance having been placed in a safe were only slightly damaged. The lire was undoubtedly the work of au incen diary. 00* Mr. I. I. Stevens had not ob tained the command of a regiment at la*! accounts. It is re|M»rted that he had been tendered the command of the 73th regiment of Highlander*, but that the cotn|iaiiy had claimed the privilege of electing their commander. tig- The MowilainetT of the 10th iiist- status that it is the intention of the military authorities to call ou Gov.

Mail tor down-Sound left tliis place Monday afternoon, by the sloop Mystery, and will probably reach its destination—sometime in the future. Let it be remembered that every time the mail has left this Post Office, since the Postmaster assumed his sovereign powers, the Eliza Anderson has lain at the wharf; that the mail on one occasion was slilv abstracted * from the P. O. about midnight; that the Ander&on company do not de mand an increase in the price at which the mail has been carried heretofore; that they aro willing to yield the service to Mr. Parkinson should ho be enbled to perform it after a reasonable elapse of time; that they are in favor of a semi weekly or a tri-weekly service, instead of being opposed to such service, as is intimated by the individual Scranton. THE FUNNY DUTCHMAN.— The Chron icle man at Vancouver is a funny fel low, and withal an exceedingly inge nious one. To show his knowledge of tho "classics" ho relates an unecdoto and applies tho 44 morial" to us. Who will not admire such sagacity and wU dom ! By this means he demonstrates to us the fact that although lie may have some 44 soft spots" on his lager soakeJ cranium, that lie is not behind the age in self esteem.

In order to do this effec- I tually, lie has 1 nought to bear the terri | ble enginery of martial law. Of wane* litis act has provoked the plaintive howls of the svuipathizers throughout the country, ft it but na tural for tbem do so; because their ac tive acroiup!i<-<*s in treasou are aliout to g».t their divert*. The reader hould recollect, that pn> vious to resorting to extreme luemuru, the l>isiiuionMs bad levied armied for ces agailist the Uuited State*, invited the assistance— through the traitor Jacksou—ii| i'ie Confederate traitors. , burnt bridge*. tore up railroads, fired on Union tn> |* which were parsing through the Slate under orders from the Federal Government, and in addi tion to a thoti-and other atrocious acts of treason, had fought two general ac tions with the United States troops with artued corps of domestic traitors, and the bitmU of desperadoes from the South. In the face of all these things, the sympathizer* here are displeased at IIK; action oi the Government thus giv- j ing another proof that their hearts not' with the Union cause. The Disimiouists of Missouri have dared the dread arhitriiuent of the; sword; They have taken tip arms to: tear down the fabric of the Union; they; havo acted offensively from the start, and now* the day of reconing is ut hand ; they are about to be crushed. Seventy thousand Union troops—a large portion of tlicin citizens of Missouri—march ing to the "music of the Union," are on her soil to protect tho loyal and to kill the disloyal. This army of the gallant sons of tlie North-west is composed of the best men of that section —lovers of law and order, the best friends of Mis souri. They are the offspring of the most daring and hardy ot all the older states, —the chivalry of forest and plain. Before their patriotic ranks the troops of Ilardec and MeCnlloch will be scat tered like chaff before the wind. The sympathetic dodgers here, find great fault with the interference with Gov. Gamble's functions, and the con fiscation of slave property. Gov. Gam ble being a patriot, lui9 undoubtedly sanctioned General Fremont's course; and traitorous owners ot negroes havo to abide the consequences of their own actions. Those who own negroes— " protected by the Constitution " must either support the Union cause, or all their property—including ne groes—will be taken from them.—Or tgonian.

The lines of the army of occupation in this State are for the present declared to extend from Leavenworth by way of the posts of Jefferson City and I ronton to Cape Girardeau, on the Mississippi river. All persons who shall be taken with arms in their hands within these lines, shall bo tried by court martial and if found guiltv, will be shot. The property, real and personal, of all per sons in the State of Missouri who shall take up arms against the United States or who shall be directly proved to have taken active part with their enemies in the field, shall bo confiscated to the public use. Their slaves if they have any are declared free men. All persons who shall bo proved to have destroyed after the publication of this order, rail road tracks, bridges or telegraph lines, shall suffer the extreme penalty of the law. All persons engaged in treason able correspondence, in giving peciini ary aid to the enemies ot the United States, in exciting tnrmoil and disturb ing the public tranquility, by creating 1 and circulating false reports and incen diary documents, are in their own in terest warned that they are exposing themselves to suddeu and severe pun ishment.
