ni viiiiKTii mum BATURDAY, OCTOBB3 12.1861. Ye Ckraniele CU|M Wasstk Wrath. Some of our readers are doubtless ware that there is an abusive, ill natured. loosl sheet published at \ an • ouvct, called the 1 'inrouttr Its ostensible editor is a pettifogger of the (iernian •purs , »».-i'>»>,' am! its c«n froling patr*»»> a «np(.*r*»»n«ated granny, who imagined that if he withdrew from the trad*; of Portland that city would " die on* in si* months." The sole ob ject of the paj»er for the past ten months sevins to have been to cast dirt into the eyes of every one who has advocated measures which might be so eonstrued us to conflict with the local interests of Clark county, and so well has it succeeded in its nefarious calling that a feud has grown up between the people of Clark and Thurston counties, which may never be removed. No offi cer in the discharge of his duty, has faithfully performed his trust, but that, if it has resulted to the seeming advan tage of a rival section, he has received a broadside from the clan who control its colums. And this docs not complete its measure of iniquity. While it whines about the " usurpations" of for mer incumbents, it is fully as savage upon the present, because they will not depart from their legitimate duty, and subvert the best interests of a largo por tion of the community, merely to satis fy the animosity held by old granny against Portland! In the lust issue of this delectable pink of consistency we find almost three columns of balderdash, evidently written by a certain ox-Judge, "who, ■of course, is uninterested," in which the Strongest batteries are employed against Governor Turnev and Chief •Justice Hewitt, simply because these gentlemen did not coiisiderTt in their line of duty to espouse the cause of the 'Chronicle clique against the people of the Territory, and pass judgment on a question which is and has been for the past ten monthsbeforo the Department for decision. Gov. Turnev, in his re ply to the committee sent to confer with him, gave as his reason for non-action, that he had not (he authority to comply with their demands. Still he is cen sured for refusing to "usurp" power, while almost every act of late Acting Governor McGill was' denounced by this same clique as " base usurpations of authority." 11l the review of the Governor's course the writer doesnot assume boldly that which he would have the reader to understand, but craven-like, seeks •by vague insinuations to prejudice the public mind against a competent and efficient officer. The writer starts out with the statement that "it is an un pleasant task" to r3view the acts of a public officer, and then proceeds to maligu the. motives of the Governor in JI manner that shows the task is any thing but unpleasant to the accuser —it is certainly his forte. There arc few meu in the world who find a mor bid pleasure in grumbling, aud hence make it a business: we do not think that the editor of the Chronicle belongs to that class, but rather that he is com pelled to obey the dictates of those who control him. The clique tare evidently taken um brage at the intimation advanced by the Governor concerning "the Buchan ant, the Cobbs, and the Floyds, who depleted oar Treasury," and gravely ■iijTffl that the Governor donate his aiayto rent a capital atVaneoaver! la bet, they eeem to be more enraged becaqsc the Governor refused to squau der the Government money than upon aay other argument in the reply. The ••kuMfljadfce" then abuaea the Gov ernor, because be can't find a law au thorising him to accept money from parties to "defray the expenses" of said reaaovaL There are men, we doubt not, who would unhesitatingly accept mammy to »defray expanses"; bat the gentlemen aforesaid have widely mis taken their man, if they suppose Gov. TBTNJ is one of them. The abuse of Judge Hewitt commit principally in picking flaws with the waaiiag of his opinion. Several let ters remain nndotted and othera un crtMid-c period bj some mishap is 'elongated into • dash, and a coma has lost its tail—all of which are Mited upon bj the erudite writer and magni fied into huge breach®* of official trust. *' Thi*e who Ut« in glasshouse* should not throw stones," and we therefore cau tion the Ckrankie man against a lavish waste ofcritic-Mm upon subject* which he rannot him* It comprehend. With all the blasted acquirements of the fjhroni cir clique, we "opine" that its editor cannot point to a single article a column in length, which has appeared in his sheet tor the past t«»n mouth*. the punc tuation of which will stand the test of tno<lerv!c criticism. Many men iuis««ke the profession or business for which they are adapted; hence many a good tailor i-! sacrificed through a fancied affection far Blaclutoue, and many a man who could make a comfortable livelihood nt bo.>t blacking considers it his pecu liar province to mount the editorial tri pod as the month-piece of some secret clique, who have axes to grind, and disgrace a calling which should be wielded tor the public g<*»d. Educa tion has its advantage, but without common sense it is powerless in the successful conduct of a public journal. And thus it will he with Struve. lie has mistaken his calling, nnd the peo ple of Clark county will ere long under stand, if they do not nuw, that such a machine is not likely to advance their interests. We will not pursue the subject fur ther, for fear that a share of the same painful sarcasm which was so unmerci fully aimed at our worthy Governor and Chief Justice, may be hurled at our own humble self. We congratu late the martyred gentlemen that they "still live," and furthermore, that they are so fortunate as to merit the censure of old granny's clique, instead of their praise. STILL COMPLAINING.— The bemoans the unclassical names of the battle-fields which have figured in the present rebellion. It don't like such names as Bull Run, llig Bethel, Scary Creek, &e., &c., and makes it an urgent reason for the discontinuance of the war. We presume such traitors would object to being hung at Bull Run, be cause the name is so" unclas/ieal." HST" We have received the first copy of the Oregon Churchman , a monthly religious paper published at Oregon City, Oregon, upon a press sent by the Sabbath schools of the Episcopal Church in Massachusetts and Rhode Island to the mission on this coast. The paper is well printed, and is furnished at §I,OO per year. gigy* We arc informed by Daniel Bar ley, Eaq., President of the board of Uni versity Commissioners, Seattle, that school will be commenced in the Uni versity building on the 4th of Novem ber, prox. A. S. Mercer, A. 8., late of Ohio, has been engaged as teacher. I. FALUTIN, ESQ. —The astute editor of the Press delights in using such ex pressions as "in the civilized world," "in no portion of Unele Sam's wide spread domains," etc. He is quite long winded in the delivery of a sentence, and is evidently a great Iravaikr. Miss Belle Caso took tho first premium, aud Miss Jackson the second do., for superior cqurstrianship , at tho Oregon State Fair. For tho benefit of our bachelor friends, we will state that the former resides in Polk couutv, the fitter in Clackamas. V®. The Portland Times and Van couver Chronic'e are having a war of words. The Times has decidedly the advantage of Struvc, however, and its heavy butteries meet with but a feeble res|K>n*e from the Chronic' platoon. WST The Adcer titer says a telegraph ic dispatch was received a few days since by CoL Beall, at Yancunver, from Gen. Sumner, ordering the Uni ted States troops in this district imme diately to California. t&T The Press says the Chronicle man is a " cabbage-bead." That eon firms what the Oregon inn said about tl»e "satter kraut editorials" of the Chronicle. Too LATX. —We have received from Jaa. Tilton, Esq., a reply to our article of last week, entitled M Aetion vs. Words." It shall find a place in our next issue.

THE PORTLAND ADVERTISE*. — I This treason disseminator seems to grow holder each day in its denunciation of the war and the Administration. We confess we sec no justice in the sup pression of the N. Y. Day-Book and Newt if other papers equal I? aa fraught with treason arc permitted to aow the seed of rebellion broadcast over the laud. The Advertiser most be an eye sore to every loyal citizen, and still be is compelled to witness its baneful influence unchecked by the power which it and which it would delight to see overthrown. The great object of the tre<ison party of the Pacific is, the BLSMEMCKKHKNT OF THE ULUOS, and the ESTAKLISUME.ST OF A PACIFIC CONFEDERACY. Can an object be plainer? What advantage would re sult to this clan by simply a recognition of the Southern empire? We trust that any man of ordiuary perception can realize that there must be some ul terior object of which the time of promul gation has not yet arrived. Thar the time will come shortly we infer from the occasional paragraphs meaning little hut signifying much which have from time to time appeared in the treason jour nals of the Pacific. There is evidently a complete organization of the treason jxirty on this coast. The Advertiser has cor respondents throughout California, ev idently paid for their infamous services, while it is well known that the weekly receipts of that paper would not pay the board of the workmen employed upon it. PRESENTS FOR MR. AND MRS. LIN COLN.—Mrs. Barlow, of Oregon City, exhibited a bed quilt at the late State Fair designed as a present for Mrs. Lin coln. It is said to have contained all the colors of the American flag, wrought in a number of appropriate devices. It had a large star in the cen tre with thirty-three stars in its area, with the inscription " EPluribus Union. To President Lincoln, from Mrs. Win. Barlow, Oregon City, 1801." Anoth er present to bo sent from Ore gon by David Logan, Esq., is a rock ing chair manufactured of Oregon ma ple, by Mr. Jackson, an old soldier of the war of 1812, now soventy-thrco years old. The California Farmer states cattle attacked with blindness may bo cured by cleansing the eye with water : and soap, and taking burnt alum be tween the finger ami thumb and throw i ins; it in the eves of the animal. This course repeated several da\s will affect ' a cure, as an animal upon which this j was tried was restored to sight after be jing blind two weeks. gyTliti Advertiser lately contained tlio following paragraph : " We have every reason to invoke Divine interposition to stay the hand of Lincoln, paralyze his efforts and thus put u stop to the unnatural, intestine war that he has inaugurated and car ried on." llow long can a loyal community tolerate such treasonable sentiments? J©-The Times says: "We learn from reliable authority, that orders have been received for the removal of ull the regular troops stationed in Oregon, to the East. Their placcsare to be supplied by volunteers." VQu The Sunday Law of California has been pronounced constitutional by the Supreme Court of that State.— Saloon-keepers and barbers are making efforts to have it repealed. fIQ" An exchange says that the ill ness of ex-President Buchanan is said to have been caused by sheer exhaus tion.

Dick Mr. Dickinson abows the absurdity of the Jeff Davis "government": A Government purporting to be of the people without permitting them to have a voice in constructing it; with out a 44 local habitation "of departments in the abstract, and offices with more titles than duties; a president without an election, a treasury without money or revenue, a navy without sLips, a post-office without mails, a minister of foreign relations, whose relations abroad dec!ine to acknowledge the con nection. a department ot the interior representing a nature-abhorred vacuum, au attorney geneml without law, and a patent office which iu the absence of other business, should issue letters se curing the exclusive right ot this new fledged confederacy to those who in vented it. for its extraordinary novelty rather than its acknowledged utility ; that it may lie preserved to after time* in the world's curiosity shop, wit!: Law's scheme of hanking, the moon hoax of Locke, the messages of the President and Queen over the sub marine telegraph aud Red-hciffer's per

petual motion. lie reminds Jeff. Davis of the fate of Absalom. Let all such retncnibcr the wood of Knhruim. the wide-spreading brunches of the oak. the painful sn*penst which came over the uuthor of the rebellion, the darts of Juab, the pit into which the prince of the royal household was cast for his folly, his madness and treach ery. Describes as follows the storm that was racing here when Sumter fell: A sheet of cimmeriun darkness near midnight, hung like a pull of death over the earth—the winds moaned heavily, like the wail of spirits lost— doors creaked and windows cluttered— driving currents and counter currents of sleet and rain descended like roaring cataracts; but the hoarse and startling shriek ot the New York newsboy rose above all the cry, "The bombardment of Fort Sumter," and "Gave siffns of woo Tlint all was lost." The blood fiend laughed loud; the evil genius of libn:unity dapped his hands in triumph: Monarchy " grinned horribly a ghastly smile" hut Liberty, bathed in tears, was bowed in shame, for the madness of her degenerate chil dren. Characterizes secession as political free love: The advocates ot the right of seces sion in claiming that a State, after its solemn admission and while enjoying the protection and participating in the fruits of the Union, may at pleasure and by its own act secede, to bo con sistent should hold that a nation may at pleasure withdraw from its treaty obligations without previous provision or consent of the other side; that one who has conveyed an estate and re ceived the the consideration, may re sume it when it suits his necessity or convenience; that the husband or wife may repudiate the marriage obligation without detriment, or a disregard of marital faith ; and in short that a cov enant made by two parties, and in which both are Interested, may bo can celed bv one. The right to invade, must rest upon a political free lovo, where States un equally united may, on discovering their true affinities, disolve the first con dition and becomes caled in confederate wedlock to their chosen compai.inns during pleasure, and the authors of the discovery should go down to posterity as the Brighum Youngs of modern Confederacies. Explodes the nonsense of the South about defending its firesides, and tells the rebels how to get peace. You propose to defend your home hearths, your firesides, your porches, your altars, your wives and your child ren, your household gods, and these re solves sound well indeed, even in the abstract; but practically, the defense will IKS in time when thev are assailed, or at least threatened. And you may rest with the assurance that when either of these sacred and cherished interests shall be desecrated or placed in danger or in jeopardy from any vandal spirit upon the globe, you shall not defend them alone; for an army from the free State*, mightier than that which rote np to crush your rebellion, "wye, a great multitude which no man can number," will defend them for you. But the is sue must not be changed or frittered away. Sumter was not your home hearth, Pickens your fireside. Harper's Ferry your |»orch, tne Navy -yards vonr altars, the custom-hoaxes and post-of fices and revenue cotters your wires and children, nor the mints your house hold gods. The Government has no right to desecrate your homes, nor hare yon the right to seise upon and appro priate to yourselves, under any name however specious, what is not your own hot the property of the whole peo ple ot the United Btates; not of those in array against it as enemies, defying its laws, but those who acknowledge and defer to ite authoritr. You desiiepeace! Then lay down yourarms and yon will hare H. It was peace when yon took t*»om op; It will be peace when you lay them down.

McClellan discovered five or sis hundred of the enemy approaching, two miles distant. He immediately ordered geverl rifled cannon to be placed in po sition and sent his compliinenta to the rebels in the fthupe of a 20 pound shell, that exploded in their midst, producing the wildest confusion. The whole force were seen to scatter and fly, and there is no doubt but that a large number were killed. They did not return the fire. Gen. McClellan, after disposing of this force of rebels, directed his atten tion to n new buttery, recently thrown up by the enemy, n shortdistance south of Munson's if ill. He threw several shot and shell into their works, causing their hands to knock off. They were surprised by this sadden opening of our batteries on theirs, as they disap peared and did not return the lire. Gen. McClellan returned to the city on the 18th.
