In litis ih'f. ns.' occurs tin-following rcuiarka (do gcntencc: "I'liis i- the remedy now in use bv the Republican doctors to pot rid of Democrats who hold office under I nclv Ale. It was not neccssan* that we should I e told by the Advertiser that Mr. I>. F. Kendall is a Democrat in all his associations, sympathies, and future political aspirations, and that his entire patronage and influence will he used, as far as he dare use it, for pulling down the Re publican organization and strengthening, as far as possible that of the opposition. If he had been appointed us a Democrat, we should not complain of his throwing his influence in that direction, whatever wc may have thought of such suicidal folly on the part of the Ad ministration. 13ut we have the best of evi dence for believing that he took great pains while at Washington, to create the impression that lie was an ardent Republican, and it was well understood that he could not obtain the appointment to so important an office bnt by re moving all doubt of loyalty to the Govern ment, and by professing a desire for the pros perity of the Republican Administration. The Republicans, as a party, never pre tended that if elevated to power they would feel disposed to change the fixed and settled policy of the Government, by ignoring parti san considerations in making appointments to e'v'l o.Tices. They did, however, complain of 31 r. Polk for having confined his military as well as his civil appointments excluricvly to his partisan friends. President LINCOLN has very properly repudiated this Democratic precedent, established during the Mexican war, and has given his political opponents a fair share of his military patronage; while justice requires that the civil' appointments should be made from the Republican ranks. The reason for making this distinction be tween civil and military appointments is ap parent. Our army is represented by all par ties and creeds, nud it is but fair that the men who thus express tlieir willingness to risk their lives in defence of our flag should be entitled to share the honors aud emoluments pertaining to the army. When our Demo cratic friends shidl formally abandon their organisation, and shall cease making meta physical distinctions between the Government aud tho Administration, and manifest their willingness to support the measures of Presi dent Lincoln's Administration, we will not ob ject to their shariug with Republicans "who have borne the heat and burden of the day," thepntionage that may be ktrtaftrr dii-peuaod; hat we protest, in the name of all that i» fair and hoHorsble. against putting or keeping in the hands of a Democrat a large <»r a .-null power and patronage to be used f T hi* own mercenary purpose*, or to build op a I Vne - rralk partv upou the rains «>f the Republican iwgaiiiilinii We are confident that the pium Administration aill not couimi: the extravagant folly of he |wUt» 'r. and retain in power those who are known to U plating its dftmetH-a.

This conduct of the Supeiiuirudeut. in thus tyrnniziiig over and insulting hi« Republican subordinates, can only be explained on the hypothesis that he belongs to t lie Ad err timer's school of Democracy, and that he is now using the power and patronage, conferred upon him under n misapprehension of his true character, for their benefit and the dis truction of the Republican organization of the Territory, and the ultimate overthrow of the Administration. If he is permitted to contin ue thus to act, it will be against the unan imous protestations of all who sincerely desire the success of the present Administration. THE CAPITAL. —TIio Supreme Court, on Monday Inst, rendered their decision on the "Capital Question." Eaeli member of the court delivered a verbal opinion, with the understanding, wo believe, that a writ ten decisions will be rendered hereafter. The court was divided upon the main point in the case, viz: The defective character of the law, in being without an enacting clause. Judge Wythe dissenting. The case had been very ably argued on both sides. The Chief Jus tice and Judge Oliplmnt seemed to be entire ly satisfied that a law must have expressed in its body somewhere, the power that enacted it, to make it a valid law. Judge Wvche de livered a very ingenious opinion, He said that lie had very serious doubts upon that point; that the great weight of authority seemed to require an enacting clause; but if it would be competent for the court to go to the journals to show that n law had found its way among the published laws by fraud, or accident, which had never been passed upon by the Legislature, then it followed that the court might go to the journals to determine the intention of the Legislature, when it had omitted to express that intention in the law itself, and, that therefore ho was of the opin ion that the said law was a valid one, not notwithstauding its defective character. All who listened to the reasoning of the Judge, if not satisfied of its correctness, must have been satisfied of his honesty and sincerity. We trust the decision of the court will give satisfaction.

Dur ing Monday night Mntlicny's wart-house, Du relle's saw mill, the eider tnanttfaclory, and all the bonnes on that hunch of laud wero swept off. Even the great brick chimney, which it was thought would stand against any force of t water, tumbled down during .Monday night. The wharf built last summer was loaded with stone, and stood till the water reached the comb of the roof, when it rose, twisted around with a crash, aud went out into the current." The Onward, on tli(> lft inst., picked up about forty persons from houses, tree-tops, and rafts between Oregon City ami Salem. Twelve persons were rescued witli a small boat from a point opposite .Salem, who were in a perilous situation. The water had cut them off from the hills during tho night, and they had taken refuge on a barn which was likely to float off in a short time. A French man and his family were taken from n raft at tho same place, on tho Ist inst. liutteville and Chainpoeg are inundated— every house but one being swept from tho latter place. Tracy & Co's messenger who managed to make the trip to and from Salem last week re lates that at a point above liutteville a half-breed woman with a child in her arms was picked up by men in a small boat. This woman had swam about ono and n half miles upon the tide before her rescue. On n high point a short distance above Champoeg.a man wan found surrounded by water, when the messen ger went up, and several attempts had been made to rescue him with a boat, but all had proved fruitless in consequence of the current. When he returned the man was still there, having been there three days without food, and further attempts wore about to be made for liis rescue with hopes of success, as the ftater had fallen considerably. At Portland, tho water on the 3d was on Front street in front of tho Pioneer Hotel. Hull & Master's wharf bad been swept away, and others were in danger. Vaughn's build ings on the levee had been anchored with a heavy cable The iuipressiuu prevails that not a strum l»oat landing has escaped undamaged. Ware houses have been carried away, aud their contents rendered valueless along the whole route from Oregon City to Eugene.

I pulled it, and pushed it, hung on to it, and let go of it, but found it of no use, the incessant ding—ding—ding—ding kept on in spite of all. lam not a Yankee, aud know but very little about the 'innards'of clocks, nnd by this time began to see that I was at my wits' ends—l could do no more. If it had been one of the old fashioned ' twenty-four hour' concerns, I would have thought little of it, and went to bed and let it do its worst. When I thought though of the ten or fourteen days striking which it seemed to be deter mined to get through with before it stopped, I was in despair. 'How long will it last?' 1 asked myself. Tried to make some sort of calculation, but the constant whir-r-r-r aud ding—ding—(ling—ding knocked all calcula tion into pi, I knew it must strike some two thousand times, but how long it would be in doing it I could not compute; had an idea it would take a day or two—and how could 1 tell if it would ever stop. Perhaps somebody had palmed off a perpetual motion on me. I thought of the Burgomaster's patent cork leg, which, when tied on, the sprit:g9 wound up, and set going, could not be slopped, but is supposed to he still moving the unfortunate Dutchman over the world, and of many other endless things. The preaching next day caino into my mind, nnd I concluded, if it kept up its racket, I would take it out in the woods in the morning, and let it "waste its music on the desert air." By this time the ludicrou&uesa of my situation impressed me, and I wns obliged to laugh almost as loud as the clock clanged, and I heartily wished I lmd somebody with me to eujoy the fun. Af ter n hearty laugh, all to myself, I begun to think about sleep, but the idea of getting to sleep with such a constant ding—ding—ding —ding in the house was really out of the question. At last a happy thought struck me. If I could not stop it I could deaden it some. So stuffing some rags all around and in the wire of the bell, I changed its note to a muffled dug—dug—dug—dug, and retired, but was kept nwake a long time by the muf fled thumping. llow long it kept it up I can not say, but several times during the night, between the naps, I heard the dag—dug dug—dug, but in the morning when I arose, contrary to my expectation, but much to my satisfaction, it was silent.

Evans and GolJs borough write for our paper. We cnunot see any impropriety in the matter if they did; but we protest against our friends having hon ors thus thrust upon them, however Haltering the mistake may be to us. Granny Prosch should know Mr. Evans style better than to make such an assertion, (of course he lied wil fully) inasmuch as Mr. Evans wrote for the Ilera/il during the late Delegato canvass— immediately alter Mr. Parkinson refused to write longer. Mr. Goldsborough has been in Sun Francisco the past three months. As to our being young, it is a crime to which we with pleasure plead guilty, but fortunately it is not the second childhood, and if Granny Prosch wishes to test our powers of endurance, wo advise hint to "pitch in." We expected that our allusion to " those apple dumplings" would rouse his revengeful ire, and we we are not disappointed. t.f?' Wo can safely assert tliat by next Tuesday, our Territorial Legislature will have vigorously commenced the work appertaining to this winter's session. Not even a perma nent organization has been effected yet, as it was desired that due notice of the recent de cision of the Supreme (.'our', should be con veyed to the absent members and sufficient time allowed them to make their appeamnc and participate in the organisation.

As to the paper right of the seizure, the following extract* from Kent, On American IMW, if not directly in point, will have a bearing, and will be read with interest. Says Kent: In order to euforce the righta of bel ligerent nations against the delinqnen cies of neutrals, and to ascertain the real as well as assumed character of all vessels ou the high seas, the law of na tions arms them with the practical power of visitation and aearcn. The duty of self-prcscrAatioti gives to bel ligerent nations this right. It is found eu upon necessity, and is strictly and exclusively a war right, and does not rightfully exist in time of peace, unlcgg conceded by treaty. All writers upon the law of nations, and the highest au thorities, acknowledge tho right in time of war as resting on sound prin ciples of public-jurisprudence, and upon the institutes and practices of all great maritime powers. And if, upon mak ing the scurt-h, the vessel be found em ployed iu contraband trade, or in car rying enemy's property, or troops, or aispaches, she is liable to be takcu and brought in for adjudication before a prize court Neutral nations have frequently been disposed to question and resist the ex ereise of this right This was particu larly the case with the Baltic confeder acy during the American War. * Tho right of search was denied, and the flag ot' the State was declared to be a sub stitute for all documentary and other proof, aud to exclude all right of search. Those powers armed for tho purpose of defending their neutral pretensious; and England did not hesitate to con sider it as an attempt to introduce by furco a new code of maritime law in consistent with her belligerent, rights and hostile to her interests, which would go to extinguish the right of maritime capture. "The attempt was speedily frustrated and abandoned, and the right of search has since that time been considered incontrovertible.— Vof. 1, pp. 158 ft 159. 4 The British Govenment disclaim the right of search in time of peace, bat they claim at all times the right of ririt * * But the Government of the United States do not admit the distinc tion, between the right of visitation and the right of search.—WVb(e c, p, 15<L The Government of the United States admits the right of visitation sad search by belligerent government sets of their private merchant veaaek, for enemy's property, articles contra band of war, or men is the land lad naval service of the enemy.
