P.»rrie t»o weeks ti:»ca a letter wa* handed f;ia ihi 1 C"ll<Mi<r al Port re* DH'iid, re questing us to ropy a cwiinnnicatinn addrees •d bv liiin to thr Durst ieksiiui orjrnn. V e did not publish it r.s wc should have done had it been addressed to us, although ven' much pressed for room At the time. The Legislature has seen proper to dispense with our services, nnd consequently we are at liberty to use our columns more for the ac commodation of our friends and their local and personal interests, than it would have beon proper for us to have done had we been con tiuued iu the office of Public Printer. One other consideration has influenced us to give Mr. Smith a hearing through our col umns, although still pressed for room: and that is, the wicked and corrupt combination ■that has been formed against him by personal and political enemies, for the purpose of ruin ing his reputation both here and at Washing ton. Notwithstanding wc may have preferred «our friend Wilson of our own Territory for the office of Collector of the Pugct Sound dis trict to any man from the States, our failing in the accomplishment of our wishes, we were as willing to have Mr. Victor Smith for our Collector as any other man outside of the Ter ritory. lie came among us as a gentleman of high character and ability, not only as Col lector of the Pttget Sound District, but as the confidential agent of the Treasury Department for the whole Pacific coast. These facts of themselves were a sufficient endorsement for his integrity nnd ability as a man, and for his being a reliable Republican, whose whole in fluence woidd be used for the best welfare of the Government and the interests of the peo ple of the Territory, without regard to local interests or party cliques; and so far as we know and believe, he has dune nothing to dis appoint these expectations,—and hence we conclude he will be in no danger of suffering serious permanent injury from the wholesale ■charges of personal and official dishonesty -charged upon hint by the editor of the North West in a late issue of his paper. That gen tleman has yet to learn (and the sooner he Jearns it the better for him and the Republi can cause which lw professes to have so near his heart), that characters for honesty and in tegrity that have been built up in the eastern •communities by the persevering toil of years, are not to be swept away at one dash of the pen, although it may be wielded by the Her cules of the editorial corps of the famed city of Port Town send. We think the Hon. Vic tor Smith will survive these sweeping accu sations, notwithstanding they have been tacitly endorsed by a majority of oar Legislature. We incline to the opinion that both Presi dent IJncoln and bis Secretary, Mr. Chase, will at least give Mr. Smith • hearing before they adopt sa truths the charges of that i (ilimuil and rhamelion sheet, the Sorth Wett, and which seems to have been resusci tated fro n its aappeard sleep of death to be rosK thr pHsnt Wei in the henci of nth btt trr encuues of thr Bopsbiicsa rinse aa Paul K. the inijm Aukiicta/* and lit* Mxwpilin aad lindkuvr urauir*, Ztr the fmfoor of biack-HALIIMG (1M ja-OUOL and ffcid ekarnrto of th«- R. jh» s{>|«4n:- era of thr |«o»nl A«l:..:ut»ira'i->u That each am RHONM he RAFAGRD IA MJTL DIRT* WEAK, dor# tx* oo nark Mvpriar E». —bet that they sheeid i«-cr»\r th» a*L and rout.-aaijo of Men profmiog to he frWnd* of thr B» |>«b tiaaa ansae, *aad aha ahaaid ha ntnnrh pant*** . ia to a* naen rawtahli aad astsai fsnhiasilili. ead ■* find aare «3 mot he re #"d i el WaaUngtae *ah fates. nhalrver wm he thaaght of M CUM ha the hnrt Meads af thr BipnllU is caaela thie Ter- the «fcal tmimtt * *• *■ tkm |4w i« al who mmj W tkM niiiiiMi to W Imi4 a their iArmmr.

Now we find iiothiug in the law of Con gress granting the lands tlmt direct* wliru or how they shall be applied, whether they shall be sold for cash or on credit, —for one dollar and a quarter per acre, or for one dollar and fifty cents; —what amount shall lie expended for the erection of a University building, and what set apart for endowing professorships. It is not required to locate it at the Capital, or at any other particular point in the Terri tory. All of these detail* are tr/} entirely with the Legislature. It is not insisted by the Governor, or any body else that we are aware of, that there has been any violation of the terms of the law by the commissioners in the selection and dispo sal of the land, or in the application of the money in the erection of a I'niversity build ing. All has been in strict conformity to the law of the Legislative Assembly, and tho result shows a very commendable zeal and ability on the part of the commissioners. We have not succeeded ns yet in fully comprehending the distinct grounds of tho Governor's objections. He is by no means as clear iu the expression of his views on the University question ns upon others of far less i puiuic importance. it appears, However,tiint j he apprehends thnt Congress will not confirm the action of the Legislature or the selection of the lands under the law by the commis sioners, but he does not go into a detail oi his reasons for his very decided and confident opinion. They may be entirely conclusive on the subject, but until they are given to the public, we do not apprehend that any one de sirous of obtaining land for settlement, or for the timber, M ill hesitate to risk their money on the faith of the Government's carrying out tho clearly implied contract made with the prior settlers in the Territoiy. We are not one of those who believe in the policy or justice of hoarding those lands for the benefit of the generations that are to come after us, or that this was expected by Con- Eess when they placed two townships of id At our disposal for University purposes. However much wo may deprecate some of the legislation of the last session, wo most heartily approve the policy of their rendering that fund available for the education of the sons ot our honest pioneer settlers; and this one righteous and benevolent act of theirs will go very far with us in excusing their incon siderate and mischievous legislation. We arc informed by the Surveyor General. I)r.

The Federal troops now occupy I»<\iufort, S. C., and are fortifying themselves. Yesterday Col. Jeff. C.

The dispatches of the British Minis ter, received at Washington, are re ported to be more sensible and moder ate than the representations of the Dritish press would lead to the belief. Nothing peremptory or imperative is addros'ed to our Government, ami no difficulty presented to their view but which can and will be settled by diplomacy. l}rijtcy, Dec. 21—2 r. m. Gen.

In the House, yesterday, .Julian, of In diana, offered a resolution that the Fu gitive Slave law be so amended as to forbid the recapturo of any fugitive from labor, without proof that the claimant is loyal. After much discus sion the resolution passed. The capture of 1,5100 rebels at War rensburg, Mo., by Col. Jeff. C* Davis, is regarded as the most brilliant exploit of the war.

Ord's command was near Drainsville, it was attacked by the enemy in ambnsli. A brisk engagement ensued. It contin ued an hour, when "the enemy finding it too hot for them, retreated in the di rection of Fairfax, leaving a large num ber of dead and wounded on the field. Our troops pursued for a abort distance, and picked up the wounded and pris oner*. Gen. Old oaptared a large amount of arms, clothing. etr., which the enemy left behind.
