[From the Portland Orefroniau.] Tho first Printing Press West of the Rocky Mountains. On the 2d of March. 1839, Kdwin O. Hall, then printer of the Honolulu Mission under the nnspices of the "American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions," and since editor of the Polynesian, accompanied by his wife, sailed from the Sandwich Islands i'or the Presbyterian Mission on the Clearwater river, in what was then Ore gon, but now Washington Territory, in charge of Rev. 11. 11. Spaulding, bringing a priuting press, font of types, paper, ink, materials, binding apparat us, &c., &c\, to the value of five hun dred dollars, or thereabouts. Mr. Hall arrived in the Columbia river on the 23d of April of that year, ami proceeded with all dispatch to the !-aid station, which he reached together with the press, early in May, 1839, and soon thereafter commenced the priut ing of elementary spelling books in the .Nezperces and Flathead languages, which were adopted and used by the various Mission Schools. The Mission in charge of Mr. Spauld iiv?, ami at which paid press was estab lished, was located on the Clearwater river, "bout one hundred and twenty -11 ve miles north-east of Old Fort Walla Walla, among the Nczpcrccs Indians. This river was called by the ltev. Mr. Parker, Koots-Koosic, or little Water. "Dr. Whitman, under date of March 27th, 1840, thus writes from Waiilatpu, near Walla Walla, so well l'cmembered as the sceno of the " Whitman Massa cre:" "The book, which at the annu al meeting of the Mission, I was ap pointed to write, I employed Mr. Smith and Mr. Rogers to write, as being bet ter qualified to do it than myself, and so much of my time being taken up in making medical calls for the Mission. It is now printed, and makes a tine ad dition to our tncan9 of instruction, and must supercede the one first written, as it is more correct in language and or thography. It contains fifty-two pages, and an edition of eight huudrod copies has been printed." In the Spring of 1840, Mr. Ilall and his lady, after ''having established the first press, and printed the first book, in the Pacific American Possession, re turned to the Sandwich Islands. I hare thus given a historical notice of the establishment of the first print ing press, and its incentive labors. \N ill not some reader of the Omjomian, familiar with the earlr history of Ore gon aad especially of the Mission, trace the history of this pre**, what heraine of it, and*then follow it with a chrono logical notice of the oatoblisLmeiit of the various journals in Oregon and WMfcisgtcn.

M. BLAIR, [ll:in:i] I'oslmaitcr General. Atmosphere of Planet*. Modern telescopic observations have most clearly and satisfactorily proved that tho planets, besides their own, have an encircling atmosphere. In deed, the atmospheres around the plan ets are as palpable to sight as the clouds which float on our own. Venus aud Mercury are enveloped in thick atmos pheres ; in the former, the air is cs cially conspicuous, so that the morning and evening twilight may almost be seen floating on it. The ascertained existence ot clouds in the planets prove* more than the mere presence of at mo«phercs upon them. Au atmos- Ehere is necessaty to supnort clouds, lit it is not to be identified with them. Water is converted into vapor bv the agency of the sun and the wind. This vapor, wbeu it escape* from the surface of the liquid, is generally light er, bulk for bulk, than that part of tho atmosphere contiguous to it. I( rises

into more derated regions, where, bv the agency of eold and by electricity. 1' is made to resume its liquid state, but in such minute particle#, that it floats and forms those semi-opaque masses railed Cirrat difficulties, how ever, obstruct inquires of this nature with re*|iect to iuo*t of the planet*. The very presence of those atmospheres, and the clouds with which they are loaded, offer a serious impediment to auv observation* having for their objee* to ascertain the ge. >LTaphica! character of their surface. The great distance of Forne of them is a formidable obstacle to sueh inquiries; still, w here unnir peculiar circumstance* tavor the ob servation. something has been done in this investigation.

In the present ticklish aspect of the nation's affairs it is an interesting as well as profitable task to re-peruse the patriotic oration of the distinguished Edward Everett, delivered recently in Boston, with the certainty that we shall find therein something which may account for the animus which in spired the leading financial- men of that city in their otters of unceasing monetary support to the Government of the United States during the pend ing struggle. One argument alone among the host made use of by tho orator should come home to every American, North and South, and es to us of the Pacific slope of the conti nent, whose isolation front tho rest of the would, in the event of of a dissolu tion of the States, would offer un in cessant provocation to the conquering arms of other and more powerful ua-> tions:— " Let it bo remembered," he says, " that in granting to the seceding states, jointly and severally, the right to leave the Union, we concede to them the right of resuming, if they please, their former allegiance to England, France and Spain. It rests with them, with any one of them, if the right uf access* ion is admitted, again to plant a Euro pean govern men side by side with tbat of the Uuited States on the soil of America; and it is by no meaus the most improbable upshot of this ill starred rebellion, if allowed to prosper. The disunion press in Virginia last year openly encouraged the idea of a French protectorate, and her Legislature has, . I believe, sold out the James River Ca nal, the darling enterprise of Wash ington, to a company in France sup posed to enjoy the countenance of tho Emperor. The seceding patriots of South Carolina were understood by the correspondent of the London Timet to admit, that they would rather be sub ject to a Britiah prince than to the gov ernment of the Uuited State*. Wheth er they desire it or not, the moment the scceders lose the protection of the United States they hold their indepen dence at the mercy of the powerful governments of Europe. If tU navy of the North should withdraw its pro tection, there is not a southern state sa the Atlautie or the Gulf which might not be ra-colouiued by lanes m ate mouths after the outhrsuk el a fsrateu war.
