We publish In-low the proclamation of Act ing Governor Turney, Thursday next to lie observed as a <lav of tliaiiknjrivinj; niul praise to Almighty God for his abound ing mercy's towards us. The general tone <uid spirit of the document is worldy of 4iU commendation, and its suggestions and recommendations will lie most cordially re sponded to by every loyal citizen of our Ter ritory, and more especially '»y tin* religions portion of it. We will express our thankful ness for the general mercies of which we as individuals ami nsn people have been the recipi ents, and of course we must feel grateful that wo have a Governor, not only imbued with the right spirit, but who has the independence to give expression to his opinions, and whose public nets, thus far, have met with cordial approval of the great body of our citizens, ami whose acknowledged ability and exain plary deportment, is highly creditable not only to our Territory, but to the Administra tion at Washington. We think the good people of Olympia, more especially, have abundant cause lor thankfulness for the decided improvement that has been effected in the general charac ter and morals of the Government ofheials now residing among us, when compared with their predecessors. We hope the people of (Tie Territory w ill observe the day as creditably to themselves «s was observed the late Fast Day appointed by the President, and we hope our good friends •of Oregon, (who are so unfortunate as to have urn infidel secessionist for Governor) will unite with us in keeping the day. And while we have ample cause to be thankful for the late successes attending the national arms, let us not neglect to unite in fervent prayer, to Him who holds the destiny of nations in His bands, for the welfare of those brave patriotic men engaged in the field of battle for the perpetuity of our glorious lie public. PROCLAMATION. Before the present evt-iitful year closes, mid is forever gone, let lis, as individuals and as part of u great, enlightened and ( linstiun na tion, render unfeigned thanks to him, "who is the author of every good and perfect Gift," for the many blessings and mercies by which we are now surrounded, and for all those we have enjoyed during the past year. I/'t us remem ber that "righteousness exaltetha nation" and that "Sin is a reproach to any People." Although arch Traitors have, during the past year, committed many acts of treason against the Constitution and Government of the United Stat' s, the best Government tin der God's Providence, ever made by man— {et, having been peculiarly blessed with good ealth, the Earth having yielded abundantly, and our every want lias been supplied ; and God in his great wisdom and mercy having inclined the hearts and minds of all the good citizens of the United States to defend the Government, transmitted to us in its purity by our fathers. Therefore, that we, the loyal citileus of the Territory of Washington, nuty join with such citizens throughout the I nioti, in thanks to Almighty (Jod for life,and lu llth, and friend* for the blessings of civil and religi«ms lilier tv, and the love of county—and that our uni ted prayers may aseeud to Him for the MlC reaaof <wr National armies, ami the safetv ol lUmMi in enpap-d fighting the uatiouY liat th*—-and that th<- unholy rebellion, now iM-inp waged against our free iiiKtitutious, may I*- aptwdilv |>ut down, and our gloriou* I uioii. and the liuerii«-s of our p<i>i»l«- |inwn«l for ever: I, Leander J.

We hail SII|I|HWIII that Mr. Kendall, or his ItetiiiM'mtic friends, would have heeii aide to have pleaded s.itiiethiiifr in eNteliuatioii of his assumption of power in his intercourse with the Ap-nt ou the Sinicoe reservation, and to furnish some plausalile re:ujon to justify his ahrupt and insolent disnii-sal ot Mr. \\ illmr and other subordinates, w ho had heeii selected, or rather continued in the service, hy the Ajjeiit in charge, Mr. llanrmtt. The direct and immediate results of his im partial meddling of what he has 110 right in eijnitv or justice to touch, lias been to break up the school and drive aw ay from the Agen cy employees guaranteed to the Indians by treaty stipulation, and thus seriously endan gering an Indian outbreak, so much dreaded by us alitor the past few months. The Chronicle says that Mr. Wilbur and family were receiving three thousand dollars n year from the Government, and tries to cre ate the impression that it was without the au thority of law, when the editor of that paper ought to have known that the one thousand dollars which was j>romiseil Mr. Wilbur was stipulated by treaty with the Indians. He also intimates that his .having this enormous salary stopped was what constituted the out rage 011 Mr. Wilbur. We are aware that both Mr. Kendall and his friends have labored most industriously since his return to this place, to create similar impressions upon the minds of our citizens. Hut what will be thought of him and his unscrupulous strikers when we assert, irfnit. ice I How to he true, that up to the 13th of this month Mr. Wilbur h.*j(l received from the Department only #1)8 91 and he had advanced the Department over SI00; and that having been suddenly driven from the reservation, (where he asked in vain tobe allowed to remain and instruct the sava ges, without co.it to the liorerumcnt,) without home mul shelter, or nof means to support himself and family, he was compelled in his extremity to seek employment in Dalles City as a day-laborer in order to obtain a livelihood. The people of Washington and < >regon, who have known the Uev. James 11. Wilbur for the last ten, fifteen, twenty years, yea, from boyhood up, and have noted his self-sacrific ing devotion to the welfare of his fellow men, will very naturally inquire what he could have done to justify such cold-hearted cruelty ; and what Mr. Kendall expects to gain from his relentless persecution of this man of God, who never did, and could not now be induced to harm a hair of his head. We cannot now bo surprised by anything, however presumptions or vindictive, which may be done by Mr. Kendall during his brief career of wickedness and folly. We expect to see a part of the Agents suspended for in competency after he lias by an arbitrary ex ercise of power deprived them of their clerks, in violation of common usage and long estab lished precedent, and the other half at open war with him in resisting his attempts tomake of them mere automatons to do bis will and pleasure iu all matters connected with their agencies, about which lie knows comparative ly nothing; and to compel them to give em ployment to men of his selection, who will be expected to spend most of their time iu mak ing capital to aid him to get to Congress iu place of our pres<-ut worthy Republican I '«•!- egatc, not by lb-publican but by ih imicrtilir ratrt.

In your railroad cars, upon your steamboats, in your thoroughfares, in every social circle,.disloyalty should be branded and blasted as a leprous and loath some thing. And wherever you meet these men, be it on change or in the social circle, and they offer you their hands, look well to them, for if you have the eyes which I have, you will see that they are red with the blood of freemen, your kindred and friends, it may he, who have perished and are perishing still upon the battle field.

This dispatch is continued by subse quent dispatches received at Haiti more, and the additional intelligence is re ceived that Deaufort was partially burned while being captured. The rebels were leaving the Poto mac for the South as fast as possible. A report was current at James Diver that Charleston had been attacked ou Friday. This is not at all improbable, as the naval licet need not ail have beeu employed at Fort Hoyal. The President to-day took to tl:o Treasury ss,{loo of his unexpended sal ary, and invested it in 7 3-10 notes. Government has made arrangements to have a largo number of Springfield guns and breach-loading rifles mado in this country. Gen. ircintzleman from the left wing of the army of tho Potomac, say 3 it is true that tho rebels are leaving for tho South as fast possible. Tho Union was wrecked Xov. Gth, in a Btorm. She was run ashore and the crew were taken prisoners. Tho French frigato Calabria was burned 011 Friday night off Cape Ilat teras. All hands were saved. The rebel troops aro said to be leav ing the Potomac and going South.

The rebels haveonly seven membersiu both Houses. Tlio N. Y.

As soon as ni; opening is made, and a permanent footing gaiucd along tlio Southern coast, cargoes of cotton will ho shipppd to Liverpool. Persons who reached Newport News yesterday say that tho rebels up James river are iu consternation and leaving for tho South. Washington dispatches say Gener al Scott's staff'have been assigned posi tions with Gens. McClollan aud llal leck. The Times' dispatch says, a highly intelligent and trustworthy gentleman who has been on duty in connection with tho blockading squadron oft' Charleston, assures mo that siuco Capt. Marston arrived five weeks ago, it is absolutely certain no vessel has put to sea directly from that harbor, through the narrow chauuels leading among tho Islands to Savannah. There are two points on tho east of Florida where small crafts such as schooners of light draft and sloops mav have made their way out as tho watcn of those passes is not kopt, being im possible for larger vessels. The N. Y, llcraUVs dispatch says tho division of Gen. llleuekcr now holds tho Columbia turnpike from Long Bridge to Mason's. They have seeu nothing of tho enemy. A letter to the Pott says that Gen.

The same crushing blow could be struck without so much hazard, and without causiug us to mourn the 10-s of so many gallant spii its as the dearly bought victory at Mau assas cost us. | " Determined to wage this war with ' proper vigor, the Secretary of War has urged the raising of 500,000 men at oneo. Responding to the call, our peo ple will eagerly rush to arms at once, . and by the lotu of September, at the la test, an army of 125,000 men would concentrate upon the Maryland border, leaving 50,000 men to guard the ap proach to Richmond, and appropriate forces to defendVAcquia Creek, Norfolk and all other needed points. " Our column could then take up its march, not for Washington, but for Philadelphia. Let us strike at the fountain head, the vast receptacle of Northern stores, and the workshops from which they lit out their armies. It would be far easier for us to take Philadelphia than to capture Washing ton. Even if we should give them no tice of our intention to pursue this course, they would not believe us, and our army would bo far 011 the road through Pennsylvania before the wise noodles in Washington would wake to tho reality of our movement. They think they are salb so long as Wash ington remains in their power. Even the gigantic intellect of a McClellau will not save them. The combined genius of their acknowledged best gen erals, Scott, Manstield and McDowell, could not withstand the blighting touch of Southern prowess. Let us not talk of taking their fortified places any long er. Leave Washington, like Portress Monroe, Port Pickens, Port Mcllenrv, Tortugas and other places, for after con sideration. "Let the war he carried into Africa, let the enemy be made to feel the, blast ing, desolating effects of onr conquering arms. "What a shaking and quaking would there bo in high places around tho Court, when we thus would step in between their dainty lordships and their gracious followers of the North. Men aced from all sides, for Maryland would at once rise, there could be no escapo except by sea, and it does seem to us that batteries sufficient to command tho Po tomac might cro that bo located some where. We go in ftr a scheme which will crush out this vile brood, root and branch. With Philadelphia in our hands wo have something with which to help pay tho expenses of the war; and it behooves us toprocurcsomeof tho needful, as Abraham and his sagacious friends have determimod to make us pay their war debt of six hundred mil lions ! "If we tako Washington wo gaiu a moral victory—not a substantial one; and we have still the onward move ment to make. There we shall find nothing but cumbrous masses of stone, which can be of no service to us. In Philadelphia we shall find vast store* of everything, and tho material and workshops with which to supply our army iu the future. Then oar revenge would not be sweet enough unless we could tread with martial step through the broad streets of Now York, quar ter in the palatial mansions of the mer chant prince*, who have rioted in dnams upon the possessions of the be con quered Southerners. New York must be humiliated beyond all other cities, for she has grown fist and insolent upon the wealth which the South has poured into her lap." ty l'rvntire up it Mtw alawnl to ►* var ■ hitter not to be gwlty ot J>»- kijalty; yon tnijrht a* well swear a laad «W not to bit*-.
