It is also a matter of unto- j rietv, that men who have been in the service j of the Department as subordinates, on fixed salaries per annum, have not received a dol lar for the last twelve or eighteen months. It is not to he wondered at, then, that the public should have formed the opinion that there has been"" a grosa wrong committed 011 creditors, either by the Department at Wash ington or by the Superintendent. The fact that ample means were provided by Congress for the wants of the service, and a huge amount placed in the hands of the superintendents, would seem to exonerate the Department at Washington from blame, and justify the con clusion that the fault rests with tho Superin tendent, for no sensible man will contend for a moment that honest creditors have not been most grossly wronged by somebody. In the absence of any explanation from Mr. Kendall, we have been forced to conclude that he has failed to do his duty, and we have been left to our own conjectures as to the reasons and motives that have influenced his official ac tion. If it is true that the Department at nsh ington has been guilty of the inexcusable folly of putting this large sum of money into the hands of their Superintendent, which Congress had provided for tin* payment of these liabilities, and has tied up his hands, by positive instructions, so that he cannot pay it out, the head of„ the Department desires prompt removal from office for incompetency. Every apology that has been offered for ]ttr. Kendall, reflects either great discredit upon the Department or impugns the honesty or intelligence of his predecessors in office. While we are not disposed to defend the last Administration, we do intend to do tliem jus tice. As ltepublicaus, we have every con ceivable motive for having the new aduilnis tmtion our Indian affairs contrast favorably with that of their Democratic predecessors; but candor compels us to say, that instead of any improvement having been made in that Department of Washington Territory, every thing has been growing worse, until they have reached the very climax of disorder and bank ruptcy. The Superintendent is at open war with several of bis agent*, in consequence of his arbitrary and tyrniiieal com *e toward* them ill deaving them all pari ion in the selec tioa of tbeir nttonliuales; and while he has tkooaiuids of dollars at his disposal. lie com pel* thru t« trav.-l about the country in the diarkarge of their officii! dutii-s «* pmmift $0 fmy, (which our people Lave conn to re gard m aiiautf wortkie**. —a owliie.n of tktag* v*«r brfwr kaowa in th* history of tkr Dipait —■!

W'«- ltc- lieve the most partial friends of Mr. Kendall have never claimed for liiin any peeuliar fit ness for missionary labor, and since (lie new Administration lias resolved to give the "mis sionarv system of labor" a fair trial before giv ing the Indians up to die out, in consequence of their savage and vicious indulgences, they will not be guilty of the inconsistency of blam ing Mr. Lincoln for putting a more proper man in charge of the Christian work. We hope Mr. Kendall will be able to show that his greatest faults as a disbursing agent of the Government, has been a failure to ex ercise properly his discretionary powers, and allowing bis personal enmities and prtjudiccs to override liis sense of justice, in his inter course with his Republican subordinates. If lie does this, 110 one will be more ready than ourself to reverse the unfavorable opinions that have been forced upon us by u most singular concatenation of suspicious circum stances —the most prominent of which are the facts, that while he lins held, for mouths past, from seventy to eighty thousand dollars in bis bauds applicable to the Indian service of the Territory, scarcely n dollar has been pnid to the original owners of the vouchers j the credit of the agents has been steadily de clining, until those that have given them credit for supplies for their agencies have refused them further credit; and the Imlian vouchers offered upon our streets, under the very eye of Mr. Kendall, for fifty cents on the dollar, without eliciting from liiin the slightest ex pression calculated to assure the public of their ultimate payment. ltut for the fur tunato appearance iu our midst of Dr. While, tilt; special agent of the Indian Department, Messrs. Lodge & 1 terry would have parted with a claim of fifteen hundred dollars for seven hundred and fifty could they have found a purchaser, when they w-crc entitled to payment dollar for dollar the moment they had finished their work. Of the thirty thousand dollars which Mr. Kendall claims to have disbursed since he | has been in office, we do not know of n \ dollar that has been paid into the hands of those who earned it, and hence our deduc tion last week, that there might be a design to let the scrip find its way into the hands of the Portland bankers at a large discount. I IIV do know that the Voucher* of Mr. W right, of Siuicoe, for one thousand dollar*, (a year's salary) *as refused |un lueiit by Mr. K'-ndall, ai:d iu n f< » hour* al'trrvardi* WOK sold to one of hi» lat 1 mat* frieutW at a large discount.

In order to incite the ostensible of the Press to make the terrible " disclosure" we will intimate that we believe he is not too good to be just what will pay; and fur thermore, we no not believe it would drain the treasury of the Confederate States to buy liim. Come now, out with the " document." and substantiate your insinuation, or acknowl edge yourself a sneaking, cowardly slanderer, if we have formed an erroneous estimation of Dr. Henry's character, we wish to know it, and the sooner the belter.

It was undoubtedly de signed by Oregon's late Srmator, gozefluin. The Statesman thus describes it : On the lower corner is a very good photograph like ness of «Jeft'. Davis, surrounded by a constel lation of seven black stars. Adjoining the field is a wood cut of agreasy wench, evident ly in the act of bringing in Jc(Ts lunch. On the upper margin is the following specimcti of secesli literature: "DAmb The Union of 34 Starrs." A serpent, of horrid aspect, graces the centre, and seems in the act of swallowing "34." On the lower corner; "go in nigs," anil "ours shal be 7 stars or lilud." South Carolina's favorite tree is badly executed near the centre.

Tho placing tho con trol of the service on this coast in charge of Dr. White is a step in tho right di rection. We have good reasons for be lieving that the head of the department nt Washington is imbued with tho right spirit, and is disposed to give tho "Christian system of operations" a fair trial. No one acquainted with the honest Christian sincerity of President Lincoln will doubt his disposition to aid his subordinates in their good work by every means at his disposal. We confidently expert to witness a marked improvement in the condition of the Indians on this coast within tho next low months, and more especially in this vicinity. Wo think the gross inconsis tency of employing or continuing men the service who are habitually intom perant will not be much longer tolerated.

OVERLAND PRESS; DEAR SIR :—I notice a couple of items in the Standard of to-day, which an* calculated to load the public somewhat astray, regarding the agency of Wells, Fargo & Co., in this city. In order to correct that impression, I desire to stats that there has been no change as yet, in the agency referred to. Mr. Judson is not the Agent of W. F. fc Co., neither has Mr. Bee«I HMgiml that position. In justice, however, to the Standard" 1 in formant. I will farther state that this wrong impm—inn has doubtless arisen from the fact of my expected absence daring a portion of the appsuachiag summer. in which event. I have lutiauted that 1 should Irate the agency ia 1 haij.l of Mr. Jadsoa. And this I par pose immf. sUaU I have the ehv as eaa ttmplaird. af which dar notice wiU he given. Tsars. tralv. T. M.
