Before the I.egislature convened, the See lvtarv informed us that he had the di. posal of tin! Legislative printing; wliennipoii we tstrived to induce him to make n contract with us for the work, and our Republican friend.-. generally very kindly seconded our efforts. The Secretary, however, refused to give us a definite answer, and the matter remained nn dicided until after tlio organization of the Legislature, when he appointed us to act as Printer until the Lcgixlaturc should Jill the vacancy by election, thus declining to exercise a power lit; had no doubt of possessing. Enough lias since transpired to satisfy us that he did not intend to confer any pecunia ry hciic/it upon us by the appointment, be lieving that the Legislature would elect a Printer almost as their first act after organiz ing; and this would have*been done, hut for tlio efforts of friends wlio succeeded in keep ins off the election for some twenty davs. O vv Secretary Turiiey expressed great satisfac tion iu having it in his power to aid lis in establishing the STANDARD, and assured us that we could have our pay for the printing us fast as the work was done, for he had the money on hand for disbursement. AVe felt grateful for his kind expression* of good will, and in the overflow of our gratitude, we indited an editorial complimenting his Mes sage in general terms, without taking tlio trouble to read it, presuming that a leading Republican from Illinois, and the confidential friend and adviser of President Lincoln, could write no other than one that all good Repub licans could venture with safety to endorse in advance of seeing it. We had previously given just cause of offense to his very gentle manly aud honest predecessor, in our anxiety to compliment his thanksgiving proclamation. lip to this time, the Secretary seemed very well satisfied with our general course, but finding that we had taken no further notice of his Message in general terms, and had avoided the slightest allusion, to his specific recommendations, lie urged us to back up his suggestions on the subject of the I'liiversity, offering us great inducements to defend his specific recommendations contained in u..' l ' very remarkable document. We then prom ised to look into the l itiveioily matter, and if his views corresponded w'uh our own, we vvuahi take pleasure iu uigiog their adoption. Very much to our surprise, we found that lie had pronounced the ccurae of the I uiversity ('wmnbioort* a pn-ss fraud UJHIU the people. a jrn.f* fn»u:l 111 Hiii tin' «nil lia.l umlt' utkcr nju.Jl v - ami nn<*U«l-fi»r •rrtwatiMM.

We have, therefore, no alt< inative left us but to send our bill to Washington for pay- ment. With the foregoing statement of facts, we feel very sure that our worthy Uclegato will see that justice is done lis, and a rebuke administered to the Secretary that will pre vent his again using his official position and the money of the (iovernnient to suborn and degrade an independent Republican journal into a cringing, sycophantic subserviency to his personal interests. We ask 110 especial favor at his hands, and notwithstanding he has most grievously wronged us, we shall never be found doing him an injustice; and if we have wronged him in any way in the foregoing statement of facts and deductions, wo will cheerfully give him a hearing through our columns to correct them. We still hope that the Secre tary may review his conduct, and pay us our just dues. If he does not, we will appeal to the department at Washington, not from choice, but to obtain the justice which has been so wantonlv denied us here, t3®*Tho "dim-visioned" prodigy of tin* Xorth-wtut complains that Federal officials do not help liiin write his editorials; anil envies ns, because of our extensive enrpx editorial. Now, if Government oiliciuls or others do not choose to extend to him their services, we cannot see why he should pack the blame upon lis. We feel honored by the talent with which we are surrounded, and it' Horace Grcclev, Victor Major Goldshorottjrh (who has been absent from tint Territory the past six months.) George D. l'rentice, El wood Evans, or others, choose to write our editorials, we do not see as it in any body's business but ours. We only regret tlia*. Messrs. Greeley and l'rentice cannot write oftener, —their time being so much eugrossul by two obscure "country" newspapers in the cities of New Yoil and Louisville. We ad vise the editor of the Rort/i-irrxt to conciliate Mr. tSmith, mid those who don't know the "J'arts," will believe that he has recovered from that " iccaknrnt," which threatens his ruin.

The action of a Legislative Assembly has always been regarded as indicating the pub lic opinion of the State or Territory they rep resent ; ;utd although we may believe that the "twenty-one out of the thirty-six Legisla tors," did knowingly and willfully misrepre sent the people of this Territory, in making for them these treasonable declarations, it will be difficult to convince the people of the Eastern States that our Legislature is an ex ception to the - general rule umil the people shall render a verdict of condemnation against them, as we confidently believe thev will do at our next July election. We think our friend of the Pirns bus not shown bis usual sagacity in resting his chances for a re-election as Printer upon his ability to satisfy the people that the Legislature acted either in a patriotic or wise manner in tho re jection of those I'nlon resolutions. His effort to turn the matter into ridicule may be tin best argument he can make in their dvfeuse, but it will not satisfy the people—at least the loyal portion of th< m. It is not our custom or disposition to treat subjects pertaining to the permanency of this glorious l.'nion in a spirit of levity or ridicule. Neither are we disposed to undervalue the power and influence over our people of a Leg islative Assembly composed, as the present one was, of our most worthy and talented fel low citizens, (so far as their personal charac teristics are concerned,) and hence our regret that they should so far forget their obligations to the Government that protects them, and which was then feeding and clothing them, as to give expression to such damning treason, and place it upon the journals for circulation among the loyal people of our Territory. The infantile prodigy of the Xort/t --west has ever been famous for his intimate ac quaintance with Webster's Dictionary—at least, since we have know n liiin—and many aiiil excruciating nre the instances in which a column nrticle has been indit<>d by him fur the express purpose of parading a choice vo cabulary of lug words.

After my Miiall Kuh*(-ri|itiou tn war loan is paid iiji, there is mi fear but there will Ik* tnw ti lnts in aliiiiidance f<»r salt* at thr jtlnct* named Territurinl villa#-* nri* of slow growth. TLII' records of (JK> company, always open to tln< pnlilic. show that curly in October last the interest offered me was accepted,paid for, anil secured to the public improvement iuiul without reserve. This was only n form of selfishness, for there was no way in this new country whereby the interests ot my children mid the agreeahleness of my own permanent home could he more cheaply or better secured. To secure the objects of this dedication be yond the contingencies of my own life and watchfulness, I wrote in November last to Col. Taylor, of Astoria, Oregon, (at one time pressed for the Scuatorship afterward confer red on ('ol. Baker,) stating carefully and in detail the object of the instrument recorded in the town company's books, and asking his assistance in securing that object. This let ter was read by anil its objects explained to Lieut. Jno. W. White. Col. Taylor's answer acknowledging receipt, expressing approval, etc., is in my otlice, and is nt the service of any gentleman calling. And, if called for, the original letter to Col. Taylor may be pub lished-—il is public property because intended to secure n public object beyond all contin gencies to tiie town company, to its records, or to tuvsclf. This will satisfy all whoso good opinion is desirable, |lint the makers of the "affidavits" linve, unintentionally no doubt, erred in re porting recollections of verbal conversations. '• lie is u poor judge of human nature who don't see tliat a man often prefers his 'hol»hv' to silver coins." There is uothin;; else in the protracted and exhaustive newspaper efforts of my enemies (enemies for the hour only, I (rust,) that requires notice. The gist of their aim appears to bo to prove two tilings.— First, that 1 urn an anti-slavery man. Sec ondly, that I retain hero and there a Demo crat in office. Let the first be considered as proveu. As to the second, my reply is, that when the Coiiiinander-in-Cliiei turns Demo crats out of the army, I will turn Democrats out of office in this district. And now a word to my Steilacooin friends and the Herald of that town. The indiscre tion of nil ironical allusion to the distress of the "Department" nt hearing of "Kxra's" poor opinion thereof, is one for which an apologv is now offered. It wns out of place.

F. KENDALL, Sup. Ind. Affairs, TV. T. From Frazer River. The Colonist of the 3d inst., has the fol lowing : The steamer Emily Harris arrived nt Vic toria, from Hurrard's Inlet, (I'ort Moody,) at 9 o'clock last evening, with 38 passengers and $40,000 iu gold dust. Fras.iv river continues full of ice, and navi igatiou is iui]>edud. Great numbers of stock hnvo died. Mr. Mclloberts, a settler near New Westminster, bus lost bo head of cattle, out of 105. The suow at Yolo is even with tbe tops of the houses. The Potter Troupe are playing to crowded houses at New Westminster. < hi the 20th ult., Edward Crowe, a respect ed citizen of Hope, while on his way from Yale to hia place of abode, was drowned by the ice in the river giving way, The body was not recovered. Deceased was a native of Ireland, and aged ."il>years. Lillooet Lake is frozen, and the steamer Murzellc is fro/.cn iu. The cold at Lillooet has been intense. Ail expressman from Cari boo says the weather there was mild. The mules and horses wintering on the Bonaparte and Thompson rivers, are doing well, out few having died since the first fall of snow. On Fraser river above and lielow Lillooet they aw not so well sheltered, and some have died in consequence. It is esti mated that about oue third of theni in tlio up per country will perish. Fraser river is frozen as far Chiliwack; Harrison river and Ijike are entirely free from ice. Mules in Douglas are without hay or barley, and living on Hour. They an; still packings* far as little I jike. The snow at Douglas is about four feet deep; at Lillooet two or three inches; on the ltoua- Ee, and at Canoe creek, none; at 1 leaver e about 18 inches by last accounts, l'ariiamvnt was prorogued ou the 3d, inst; till the 11th of Man-It t»« x», Ciikcs L>.—lV Wkiwmjf from nn Ka*t ern papiT. akoold be pinnrd in th<- bat of evo rv < Mympiaa: C«*r mow, be rkrerful; if yon cannut pay yonr dwkt* innxilutrlv, 4» tiir Imt vun ran. and pay ibrm aa y«a an- able. - I'arr kißrd a ia."

Ati importing house in Philadelphia, had occasion, not many years ago, to advertise for sale a quantity of brass hoppers, such as are used in coHee-mills. 15ut, in stead of brass hoppers, one of our excellent cotemporaries made it read grass-hoppers. In a short time the merchant's countingroom was thronged with enquirers respecting this new arti cle of merchandise. " Good morning, Mr. Invoice, how do you sell grasshoppers ?" 'jhio importer was astonished, but be fore he had time to reply, in came a druggist, who, being bent on specula tion, determined to purchase the whole lot, provided ho could get them low. Taking the importer aside, for fear of being hoard by the merchant, he asked him how he sold his grass-hoppers; if they were of prime quality; and wheth er they were to be used as medicine ? The importer was about opening his mouth to reply, in an angry mauuer, to what he began to suspect was a con spiracy to torment him, when a doctor entered, smelling at his cane, and look ing wonderfully wise. " Mr. luvoice," said ho, " ahem! will you be good enough to show me a specimen of your grass-hoppers ?" Grasshoppers! grasshoppers!" ex claimed the importer, us soon as he had a chance to speak," what in the devil's name, gentlemen, do you iueau by grass hoppers?" 44 Mean ?" said the merchant," why, I perceive you have advertised the article for .<ale." " Certniuly," said the druggist, "and when a man advertisos an urticle, it is natural for him to expect enquiries rel ative to the price auu quality of tho thine." "Nothingiu the world more natural," said the doctor. u As for myself, I have, at present, a number of cases ou hand, in which I thought the article might be servicible; but since you are so—abern! so uncivil—why I must look out else where, and my patients—" You and vour jhi t tents go to the devil! interrupted the importer; mine is fail)* worn out, and if you doa't explain your selves, geutlemeu, I'll lay this poker over your bead*.
