We were not really aware of the value of i our exchanges, until wo were deprived of ! them for -evcral weeks in succession. Thev * ; now reach us regularly, and we very much ! regret that we have not space to copy from | them as much as we would like to do; and ; it is n particular source of regret, that we have not room this week for the remarks of the Vancouver Telegraph on the Union Reso lutions, which are now attracting very general attention, not only in this Territory, but in Oregon. Our valuable exchange, the Orego nian, has a strong and convincing editorial, condemning the course of the majority of our Legislature in voting them down, which wo will publish next week. The Portland Times volunteers an apology for them, which, in our judgment, makes the matter worse. The only thing that we have yet seen that is entitled to the name of u def nee is an edi torial of the Telegraph, and while that falls very fir short of exculpating the Democracy from blame, the editor is entitled to great credit for his ingenuity, as well as for the courteous manner in which he discusses the question at issue. lie has not violated any of those kindly editorial courtesies due from one gentleman to another, and although dif fering very widely from us upon this as well as upon other subjects, he is not like his Washington Territory cotemporaries, driven to the necessity, for want of argument, of in dulging in all manner of slanderous abuse of our friends, who more responsible for what appears iu our columns than is the edi tor of the Telegraph. There is no reason now to doubt tho loyal ty of the editor of the Telegraph, and we shall he very happy to have him convince us ill-it voting against those resolutions was not calculated to weaken confidence in those who did it. We have no idea that all who voted against them sympathized with the peace movement of the Portland Advertiser, but un til they follow the example of their Union Democratic friends in Oregon, und come out from among their treason-defending associ ates, they will continue to share the odium that attaches to the "Peace Party," in the estimation of all truly loyal citizens. When they shall see proper to do this, we, like our Republican cotemporaries of Oregon and else where, will extend to them the right hand of fellowship, and unite with them on a broad Union platform that shall have for its only object the sustaining the Administration in its effort* to put dawn the rebellion, with the distinct understanding, that when this shall have been accomplished and the Union restored, all will he at liberty to return to their distinctive party platforms. There is uo use of special pleading or quibbling.— Every sensible man knows that support of the present Administration it the true teat of lojulty to the (loci mmcnt, and that all at tempt* lo CK-atv uu>iiuc;ions in-lit ecu the Ad miuiatratiuti and the (tuverameitt it txrthtag more uor lew than " covert trra«>n," and the pwt body «f onr profdr m understand it; and « bat is n*irr. the leader* of the opf««i tiun to Pm-ideut Lincoln at tbr late etrction.

The Gloriona Im Wv puMi.-b ibis week the most iuiportaat news that Lu rea« bed us MDCV the 1 of tlie pres.nt war. It will be aeen tbatthne i* nothing to mar the general joy that mat thrill every patriotic beart but the melancholy fact that glorious victories have cost the country the lives of many gallant heroes. Af ter such a succession of overwhelming reverses, the lenders of the wicked and unnatural rebel lion must feel the entire hoplessne«a of their cause, and manifest a willingness to lay down their nrtr.H, and tliun save all further sacrifice of life. If tliev tio not do this voluntarily, the great body of the rank and file will probably do it for them. The Huriisidc expedition is likely to prove an entire success. It will he seen that he has taken lloanoke Island, the sole defence of the entrance to Albemarle Sound, which gives m the entire command of the interior of North Carolina, and renders the capture of Norfolk, Va., inevitable. The expedition up the Tennessee and Cum berland rivers by Gen. Ilalleck have resulted in the most important victories of the war, the capture of Fort Henry on the Tennessee river,, aud that of the strong and, as was claimed by the rebels, tho impregnable fortress of Donel son, on the Cumberland river. 1 hose who are acquainted with the geography of that section of country will remember that the mouths of those two rivers are only about ten miles apart, both emptying into the Ohio, 40 aud 50 miles above Cairo. Fort Donel son is situated on a high point of land, formed by the Cumberland making a short turn to the east, about GO miles from its mouth. Fort Henry is nearly opposite Fort Donalson, on tho Tennessee, they not being more than ten or twelve miles apart. Theircapture of about 1 •1,000 men renders Middlo Tennessee, includ ing Nashville, easy of subjugation, as also North Alabama, aud places out conquering army between the rebels at Bowling Green and Columbus, and renders their capture cer tain. It will be seen by the dispatches that we have control of the Nashville and Mem phis railroad. Gen. Thomas, the hero of Somerset, has entire control of the Cumberland Gap, and will soon be in Knoxvillc, East Tennessee, where three-fourths of the population are loyal to the Government. Price is on tho run again, trying to make his escape into Arkansas, but the old scamp will probably not scamper far this time. It is said that Fremont has been honorably acquitted, and will have command of an expe dition composed entirely of Germans and march into Texas. While those glorious results are being achieved in the West, the army of the Poto mac is steadily making headway against the rebels. Gens. Lander and Banks were sur rounding; 22,000 rebels in theTidnity at Win chester, with an army of about 30,000, and the next dispatch will probably bring the news of their complete overthrow. Gen. Sherman is steadily advancing onSa vamiah, while Gen. Bntler is makiag prepar ation* to march on New Orleans from Ship Island, by way of Lake Poacbartrmin.
