The Portland Adrrrtiw: aadthe Olympia Postmaster Much has Wen said in regard to the suppression of thi# sheet. \\ c arc «»f those who believe in calling things by their right names; and when we sec a journal daily disseminating treasonable sentiments, tilled with the invocations of tlio wrath of God against the Xa-. tiotial Government and the I'nion, stu-, diously inciting the people of tliis coast to set at defiance the legally constitut- j ed authorities, in times of imminent national peril, we do not hesitate to | pronounce such a journal seditious and treasonable, and its editor a traitor, de serving the rigor of the law. Such, for months past, has been the course of the Portland Advertiser, and we believe our people and the Federal •officers of the Territory did but their •duty as loyal citizens when they solic- j itcd the Postmaster ot this place to refuse to propagate treason by the fur ther delivery of this infamous, scandal ous and tiaitoroua journal. They who faltered not in thus avowing their alle giance to our common country, they who had so recently renewed their al legiance by taking the oath to support, .protect and defend the Constitution and ■Government from domestic enemies, but did their duty in this attempt to close the avenue through which was daily transmitted these nauseous va pors of most perfidious treason. They would have been derelict had they failed to inquire "arc appropriations voted by Congress to carry insidious appeals based upon falsehood and treason to our fellow-citizens, to subvert and de stroy the this Holy Compact, our Na tional Constitution ; and to disrupt and dismember the glorious fabric be queathed to us by the Fathers, the Un ion of these States. It was their duty to pause and inquire, "Arc Postmas ters commissioned by the authorities entrusted with the preservation of our nationality, mere agents to disseminate the seeds of anarchy, rebellion and civil war, to build up a party iu our midst who preach sedition and practice trea son r We believe the Postmaster of Olym pia should refuse to deliver the pestifer ous, treason-preaching sheet whoso name heads this article, and other kin dred journals. We do not claim for him a censorship of the press, or that tho mere letter of the law iu ordinary times, would justify his refusal to de liver newspapers coming through the mail ; but we are prepared in these ex traordinary time#, when the Union is in da tiger, the Government devoting all its energies to cnish out rebellion, to commend to oar worthy Postmaster, (wboan loyalty is beyond suspicion; for whom we entertain the highest person al regard; who we know detests as much as we tbe hideous, treasonable dogmas of that delectable sheet.) the instructions given by Hon. Amos Ken dall, then Postmaster < lenerul, to tbe Postmaster at Charleston, on tbe 4th Aagust, IKii, as alw the instructions of lion. Joseph Hole Poetaaater Gen eral urJ<r the late Admin»«tration.

Not mere opposition to the policy of ex tending an institution based uj>on and ■lcriving vitality from law, which the Government hold as incendiary be cause it provoked excitement in those States, which advocated that slavery was the corner-stone of free institutions, hut but the Advertiser's doctrines are //•<<<- son to our nationality and our Union —treason against that Government which asserts authority over all the States, treason in advocating the de struction of that Government by con temning its authority, expressing sym pathy with rebels and traitors, and ad- 1 vocating a PEACE which has for its ini tial basis the impious and unholy rec ognition of the right of States to secede from and make war upon the Union and its constituted government, with no better justification than because they failed to elect the candidate of their choice to the Presidency. We earnestly protest against a con tinued delivery of these papers at our Post-ofKce. We protest against tho future abuse of our mail system in trans mitted aud disseminating the pestifer ous seeds of sedition and treason. We protest against appropriations for the mail service being misapplied to the carriage of such matter. We invoke the General Government to protect its dignity. We implore the Commander of this military district, and the United States Marshal of Oregon, to be guided by the spirit of the legislation of the late extra session of Congress, and put an end to the treason inciting acts of Curry and his traitorous cohorts to rally a party on this coast to carry out the treasonable design?, to which they are stimulated by their pledge to sub vert the National Union. SALMON RIVER MlNUS. —William Billings, Esq., has kindly placed in our hands a lettor from Mr. Kcllam, form erly of this place, dated Walla Walla, Oct. 30. which states that an immense excitement exists at that place in conse quence of the recout gold discoveries on Salmon river. Ho says that there are those there who arc making in credible amounts, daily; that the tributaries of Salmon river are also supposed to be exceedingly rich. Our limited space precludes our publish ing the letter entire. We learn that a man by the name of Wyley, first mate ot the bark ArchHrrlat Port Madison, had his hand mangled by falling on a circular saw while it was revolving. The sutierer was taken to Port Townsend by the wteamer Enterprise, on Monday, where tbe hand was amputated just alwve the wrist. will he seen that he has done more than ha* been done at any other agency in tliia Territory towards accomplishing the object which the Government had in view in establishing such s>-booU aoi"iig the Indiaus. Not only this, but bis disinterested labor for their good had endeared him to alt the Indiana, adults as well as children, and he wa* possessed of their confidence in an iuarkab*e degree—a matter of moch im portance when we roomier that the Yalcamaa were the leader* and instiga tors of the late war Boch was the character of the man removed, to five place to one, who, to say the least, has not had the experience or shown the same disinterestcdneas ia advancing the cause of education ar.d good morals as the former incumbent. A late letter says the school is broken op. aad that the ladiaas have the iiyrtasiau that all their heat friends have been drive* away aad thoae who do not care f«r them pat in their plate.

This poliey may be said to be fairly inau gurated at the Simcoo reservation. If our information from tliat notireo is cor rect, —an<l we do not doubt it, —he dis charged every man the Agent wished to retain, and retained every aan the Agent wished to discharge, leaving him in the awkward position of being under heavy bonds for the faithful dis charge of his duties as Agent, while he has no control over those for whoso conduct he is responsible. Can it he possible that this is in accordance with instructions of the Indian Department at Washington ? If so, is it not at var iance with the common custom and with common sense? Under this arrangement the Super-! intendent has an immenso amount of power placed in his hands. If we were convinced that ho was using it in such a manner as to best advance the inter ests of the Indians ond of the Govern ment, the "brief authority," as exer cised by Mr. Kendall, might bo borne j iu silence; but we cannot think that | any impartial man can believe that the Superintendent was looking alone to the interests of cither tho Indians or the Government, when he made the changes to which wo refer. Mr. Wil bur, who was removed, is better known throughout (Oregon and Washington than almost any other man. He has been laboring in tho cause of education tor the past fifteen years on this coast. Two of the most flourishing academies in Oregon (at Portland and Umpqua) were built mainly by his efforts and la bor, and his whole course shows that ho was deeply interested in that cause, lie went to Simeoe at tho urgent rc- I quest of Mr. Geary, tho former Super ; intendent, and for fifteou months has I been engaged as teacher, devoting his I well known industry and energy in the < work of educating and civilizing the !

But, ns the Editor, Air.

Gen. liosencranz, further j states that one otKccr with a pretty j largo force, had gone in tho rear of j Floyd, and the presumption was that' Floyd and his entire command would , bo surrounded and captured. Gen.
