The Binary of tht Uaioa ftmlrtin We prmaiat d hat wwk to ftvtbrr Wirt the rrmarka of tbr Tdrzrapk on the mty-rt U thv l utou ReatJatiuu*. In the &i*t place, tliat |ia|Hf aaauwed what turua out to tie rn tirviy fatar. %•«: that we mcorp-rolrJ a very important .jualiticai i-* to the last tvoolNtion, and which changed its entire character from w hat it was wheu voted dowu in the llouae. Xot luvinp MCTM to the journals of tbe HouHe, we obtained a copy of the resolutions from Mr. Grig wold, who wrote them from memory, and assured us that they wuuld not differ in seutiinent, at least, with tlie origiunl. We called npon tlio printer and upon Secre tary Tuniey for a copy which should be rer halhj accurate, but we could not obtain it. But a comparison of the resolutions as pub lished by the territorial printer, (and which we presume are correctly copied from the journals in bis possession,) will show that there is no difference in sentiment between bis copy and the one furnished us by Mr. Griswold; indeed, the words are almost iden tically the Mine in three out of the four, and the difference in the fourth is merely verbal, not changing the meaning in the slightest de gree, as will be seen by comparing the two copies we give below in parallel columns. So all that has been said by our Democratic coteuiporaries, and especially the Telegraph, about the outrank and infamy on our part of having palmed off upon the public a " bogus" set of reßohitions in place of the genuine, nil goes for nothing. Wc ask 110 one to take our word for this, but refer them to the two copies bolow, those in the first or left band column being tho resolutions as we published them, and those opposite being the copy from the journals, as published un Monday in the Over land Press, with this difference, that we pub lish similar resolutions opposite, as they should be, while the editor of the Press has been guilty of tbe contemptible meanness of placing tho third resolution of our series opposite his first, in order to show a radical difference in language and menning. This wicked and malicious attempt on his part to injure us and our friend, Dr. Henry, by mis leading bis readers, only shows how deep a man can sink himself in personal and political infamy when he lends himself to gratify the malignant hate of unscrupulous knaves. But read and compare the resolutions, and tell ns if yon discover any difference in mean ing in tbe two copies, or anything in either that an honest, loyal man could jiot with pro priety have endorsed. It will be observed that a great parade is made of the enacting clause, for no other par pose than to bolster tip the false and malicious charge of forgery preferred against us, by trying to show a difference in the ineauiug of the resolutions, and to mike it appear as dif ferent as possible the resolution opposite, kiy>wing as he did that there is not the slight eat difference in meauiug between them.

But if a majority are in favor of thu war policy of the Administra tion, as we believe they are, they will show it at the polls next July, by voting against those who havo or shall hereafter declare thomselves opposed to thu policy of the Ad ministration, and which was proposed to be endorsed by the adoptiou of the above rcso tious. But what will be thought of tbe fairness of the Telegraph and its frieuds, when it is shown that the qualifying words, which it alledgos were not a part of the resolutions when voted ou in the House, where substan tially what we represented them to be, ns will be seen by comparing tbe two copies above ? The Telegraph insists, on the authority of its frieuds referred to, in its editorial, that tbe fourth resolution stood thus: Ilftnlrett, That Washington Territory, true to herself, nnd true to the government which pro tects her, will not he found wonting in devotion to the I'nion, or fidelity ot the Laws and Consti tution, or in due respect for, nnd support of Mr. Lincoln's administration. The words, " maintaining the one and en forcing the other," it assumes, were added by us to deceive the people. It is admitted that this is the only change we have made. We now show, ou the authority of the public printer, who has tho journals in his posses sion, (and where we expect they will remain until after tho July election,) that tho words were attached to the resolutions when voted on in the House, thus relieving oursclf from the charge of interpolation, or of having cre ated a wrong impression in consequence of the verbal iuaccurncies of tho resolutions as published on tho authority of Mr. Griswold. Indeed, tho candid render will only wonder at tho very remarkable verbal accuracy of the copy furnished froin memory, and also tlie fact that tho verbal inaccuracies do not in the slightest degree change tho menning. Try some 'other dodge, Mr. Telegraph ; your readers are too intelligent to be caught by tbis. For our own part, we prefer the fourth resolution just as the Telegraph quotes it. Tlie words, "due respect for," sufficiently guard against any endorsement of President Lincoln's peculiar political opinions, which seem to be sach a terrible "bug-bear" to Democrats. Arc you anxious to make up an issue for your Democratic poace party for the July election on that resolution just as it stands above! If yon are, you ean be ac commodated. Tbe issue is already made on it in Oregon, and we are anxious to see it made in Washington Territory.

After git ing tbe resolutions, tbe ganius of the Standard continues: " Nothing of a party character ia the fore going Hawaiian, and ret every man in the House railing himailf aIV motiat voted again* them! * * • Our Democrat ir may prate u much as th-y please about their love far the Union, and MNM.VK to pay their fall share of the tax nsrrosory to support tbe (iovenaneut. as they so pompous ly did at the eoumn max in of their asasisn: but after voting daam anrb reaohuioM as th«' foregoing, and adjourning without directing a single dollar to be paid, tbe Government at Washington will know how to appreciate their profemieue of loyalty." Waahington Territory Democrats know how to distinguish between John ltno* nistn, ami the eonstitutionally administered tiot em inent of the United Ktates. They can't be humbugged by a bj |»oeriticnl Abolition howl ot " Union," nor terrified by the false and ma lignant, and slanderous cries about " traitors and secessionists." The coiintrv is waking up to know the true Union coin from the false. The above article and caption are front the Oregon Union, an avowed treason sheet, pub lished at Corvallis, Oregon. Whatever of loathing and contempt we may feel for those who array themselves against their Govern ment, wo can but feel Borne little respect for the men who come out boldly aud defend their treasou, and who resort to no subterfuges to cover up and conceal from the people their unholy purposes. The editor of the Union was at no loss to understand the intention of the Legislature in voting dowu the resolu tions, aud he has tho manliness to express in plain and unmistakable terms the effect of their action, nnd for this frankness we tender him our acknowledgments. Such papers as the Union are far less mischievous in their in fluence than those that chiiui in word* to be friends of the Administration, while their actt all tend to discredit it with the people. We would commend the extract from the Union to our cotcmporaries of the Telegraph, Prets and Herald, that they may kuow bow the Course of the Legislature is regarded by avowed secession organs iu Oregon. If they are really loyal to the Government, they will cease all further efforts to defeud theaction of the Leg islature in refusing to endorse the war meas ures of the Administration. If uur cotemporaries have not yet realized tliH inconsistency of ineu who are loyal at heart stepping forward promptly to defend such open acts of hostility to an Administra tion, that is straining ever}' nerve to its ut most tension to save the Government from overthrow, we think the following extracts will opeu their eyes. If it does not, und they shall continne to join issue with us in our ef forts to snstain the Government, they will have no cause to compluin of onr entertaining doubts of their loyalty, and more especially so, when we find them in such cardial fellow ship with men who openly avow their oppo sition to the Government, and their sympa thy with the rebels. The same number of the Union which gloats over the action of tho Democratic por tion of the legislature, is filled with glorifica tions of Joffdum, among which we find a string of rhymes, entitled "An Original Dix ie," lauding Southern rights and Southern valor, and decrying the Northern people. We give a stansa to illustrate: "Southron* heir, jroor country nil' you,

It now reviles, blasphemes, curses, censnres what it then approved, condemns wlmt it then endorsed, and is as much like its editor as it was previously unlike him. W« can hardly believo that • little patronage from the Indian Department could have wrought such a change in one week. An election is soon to be held in Ore gon , and it is not altogether unlikely that a " concatenation of circumstances" baa tended to further the result. Tlie parlies that buy Urbane will be badly "sold," however. He is well known here, as also hi* distinction be tween legal and moral perjury! [7* We are credibly informed that Judge Wyche did not require the members of the late Legislatve Assembly of this Territory, to whom he administered tho oath of office, to take an}' more of such obligation than was prescribed in the < h-gnnic law, very justly deeming tbat all sufficient.— Vancouver Tel rgraph. The Telegraph is right in this. Judgo Wyclie did not, like Gov. Tumoy administer the oath now required of all connected with tho Government, as a test of their loyalty. Wo thought a little strange of this at the time, but concluded that it was because be bad no *opy of the oath at hand. This is not the first time an effort hns been made by the Democratic press, to make the Judge con demn the course of his Republican friends.

We canunot but believe that the Governor indited the above, aa the peculiar phraseology indicat'-s ita paternity; but we cannot believe that it is really meant in iU literal arose. If it is, then the Governor's eagle, in the Mes sage, descends vary ungracefully into a sea of bombast. In its literal sense, it is an un qualified "negative" endorsement of all the Legislature did, inclndiog the injection of the I Union resolutions. Wo do not, of couree. attach much impor tance to tho oath of men who have treason in tlieir hearts, for we find hundreds now in open hostility to the Constitution and Laws, who, but a few months ago wore above suspicion ; but we were surprised tbat a majority of our Legislature should so boldly give expression to their sentiments of hostility to the Govern ment, and still more surprised and unwilling to believo that Gov. Turoey meant to endorse their action. Tho coucludiug sentence of the extract is painfully significant. Well may we exclaim, Is that n dogger we we before us! It ap pears almost incredible thst a man who would write the annexed patriotic extract contained in a Message to the Legislature, could, in his right senses and with all the facts before him, indite tho paragraph in the Timet.
