Anil shall tho continued jiossessioii ot territorial domain so valuable lie hazarded hy longer delaying a closer conneetion with the rest ot the I nion f In the event of n foreign war, hy what uncer tain tenure would California. Oregon nnd Washington ho held, in the absence of nil iron highway connecting the Atlantic with the I'acilic! The sooner the count rv is. taught that self interest dictates the speed v const ruction <>f the road, the better. We ot this coast should cease to ask it as a favor, hut demand it as a right, not only in our own behalf, hut in that of the Union, of which we form so important a part. AVe are apt to talk of the great benefits we derive from the common (iovernment and our connection with the other States, but we are too opt to overlook the fact that benefits from the connect ion are at least mutual. We might perhaps go farther, and s.iy with truth, that the balance of such benefits is on the other side of the ledger, and that we have all along paid, and continue to pay, more to the rest of the country for its favors than we receive in the way of favors conferred on us. (If course this view of the (piestion is from a financial stand-point, which, just now at least, is one of some importance. Ju money alone we have contributed to the exchequer of the world somesix or seven hun dred millions of dollars in the last dozen years. The Atlantic portion of our own country has absorbed much of this, and its presence has been the life-spring of the rapid progress the seaboard and middle States have made within the period named. And what have we re ceived in return A few millions froiu the public treasury for harbor and coast defences, and a vast amount of merchandise purchased at prices enhanced by the presence of our gold. In the latter respect, we have afforded the means of our wrong. Our gold bus built up banks, banks have expanded credit, credit has inflated prices, mid we have paid those prices in cash, (not in credit money,) thus con tinually ministering to the increase of the evil. Besides this, California has contributed vastly to the East in the way of private bouuty, as every banker and dealer ill exchange could vouch, did they permit themselves to make record of the sums which they know to be constantly passing through their hands for such purposes. Millions annually thus go Eastward, and perhaps other millions, of which there is 110 record whatever, go in private hands, for which there is no return, even in the form of merchandise. But that there is a cash balance constantly accruing in our favor may require some fur ther elucidation, and thin can he arrived at best by striking a baluuce of approximate deb it and credit. The aggregate value of merchandise brought to this port annually has been a matter of much conjecture, in consequence of the fact that so large a proportion of it, count)? from domestic Atlantic ports, is subject to no duty, and is but imperfectly entered at tie (.'ualoiu House. It is a common method to measure this value by that of our combined e\j»iris of merchandise and the precious metals ; but we have long felt satistied that this was n falla cious staud.'ird iu attempting to approximate to tke iniih ia ike imuinu To ikw klw w ill carefully inv. >.igal«* the t. we ihink it will ap|x-ar that the account rinuot l*e Mju:;r<d bj euch pmci-w. and that the autiual l>alance is wiil lv in our favor.

The items of interest, partially of exchange and of money paid for passage hence, tire waived ill the above calculation, for the lea son not only that it would be impossible to approximate to them with any degree of ac curacy, but for the other reason that we re- j gartl them as fully offset in our credits of j freight money account, the whole of which we have set down ns being sent out of the conn- i try, while the truth is that much of it is re-1 tained at home, or is returned to tis through ! the medium of our coast trade and thus enters into none of the foregoing estimates. But i apart from this, the large amounts constantly ! going out of the country in the hands of pas-! sengers, must form an annual totid far exceed ing the items referred to. Kitlicr, then, in view of the just indebted ness of the Atlantic to the Pacific States, or from the duty which the former owe to the whole Union, no time should be lost in the construction of the great national work so im portant to the interests of all.—S.

McClellnu be came the Commauder-iu-Cliief upon the re signation of Gen. Scott from active service. It occurred in this wise*: At the outset of the rebellion we had hut two Mnj.-Gen*. Win field Scott and David Twiggs, the former of whom, by virtue of wuiority, was the Com niaiider-iiethief. The title of Lieutenant - Geueral. coufcrred upon Scott by Congress, gave him no additional command, but increase of dignity and higher par and rations were attached toil, lie was the oldest Major-lien- I era I ami a» such wait the t 'ouimiuider-iii-t tiicl |of our forces. Twiggs, on accouut of his dc ! lection to the South, was di*uiissed I'roin the I arinv. A new batch of Major-tiencral* was : creatid shortly after the war broke out, con siating of Mcl fellau.

Aery of sympathy with laboring classes from men who believe bondage is the tr.te basis of a State, and who applaud in their hearts the call of their allies in the South to restrict the right of suffrage and found a government of gentlemen ! A cry of economy from men of a party who once administered the finance* of Sau Francisco! The hounds on the track of LSroderick turned /ware men, and affected with hysterics at the suit)'of powder! Wonderful transformation! What a pleasant sight—a hawk looking so innocent and preaching peace to doves with his talons loosely wound with cotton! A clump of wolves trying for this occasion only, and composing their fangs to the work of eating grass! "Holy Satan, pray for it?!" Who ever heard of a war before, in which the guilty insurgents could command a peace lull of blessings, on equal terms with the in jured party in all respects but one, and that insuring a superior benefit! Let gentlemen who live in the North, under the protection of the Constitution and the Flag, and who have sympathies for the South, and influence with tii > rebel leaders, if they burn with a desire lor peace, and are afflicted with horror at in vasion, suhjugal ion and bloodshed, turn their energies towards the authors of war, and has ten the return of a pence the most honorable, lienefieent, economical that can be realized. It is a field inviting their noblest ambition. Hut the peace ciuniorersart; careful to make the. recognition of the rebel morement the foundation of the peace they would seduce the people to urge upon the Government. Acknowledge the rebellion in so few months after it compacts itself-—.acknowledge it without gathering all possible power to put it down, and we acknowledge the principle that upheaved it—the idea of State suprema cy, the legitimacy of secession. And then the nation has acknowledged it for Illinois, for Pennsylvania, for liiigham Young, for Minnesota, for California. It has acknowl edged that Michigan owns Lake Superior and Lake Huron; that Connecticut holds n clean title at pleasure to Long Island Sound ; that New Jersey may close Deleware ltay by Armstrong guns on Cape May; that New York may steal the Hudson and seal its mouth with a tariff; that Nevada has a sovereign ti tle to its silver ledges. It has taken one long step towards its grave. It has not otdy lost provinces, but it has lost a principle that gave them, and the States that remain, the most of their value. It has not only lost n stream, but has consented to see the fountain choked out of which all its streams have flowed. As a matter of public economy, the nation could better afford to pay hundreds of millions tliun to hurry into a jieace that would acknowledge the principle of State aovcreijyti tv, and thus introduce the disease ef civil scur\ v into the tissues of the body politic. The pence would c.»l too much. • •••••••• What if we make peace now f We have spent probably two or three hundred million* alrcadv, w hit h would 1* a dead k's.s.

And a two years war. successful, will save us a hundred mil lion* a year in the fiitnre. hwddi-a saving the Constitution, which is a fountain of benefit in calculate and undraiuable.

The Captain of j the tti;; immediately boarded lirr, shook hands , with the Seccshcs and said, "1 thought when I saw you coming down thai 1 had u prize." " No, indeed," said he, pointing to the doomed rag, "under that flap 1 will die." "Well," said our brave hero, "you hare had good luck in gelling in." " Yes," said the Secesh, "but I suppose it the Yankees want to cotnu down here you can shell the very d—l out of them." "Yes," said our Yankee, "we can shell the very d—l out of them." "Well, that's good, I hope we may he able to take every Yankee on the coast." "Yes," was the reply, "we are taking about one sail a day, and some are pretty fat ones too." By this time they had passed through the Inlet into the Sound. Turning to Mr. Seccsh he said, "Do you see that big gunboat to lee ward J well she belongs to us, it is the Stars and Stripes, the pride of the Southern Yan kee fleet, and we took her." "Did you?" said the latter, interrupting our Yankee hero, "Well, that's too good." "Yes, ive fetched her IX you see," said our Yankee, turning to -Mr. Seeesh, "about the 26th of August, the Yankees came down here and shelled out of these forts, and all these gunboats, since that time, have been here to tow in boats. lam one of your Yankees! I command that gunboat,and you are, I am happy to say, my prize." DODOF. THE liuj ONES.—A gentleman re lates an anecdote of the Mexican war, which has never been published: When the American army was forming line lor the battle of lluena Vista, General Lane was riding up and down the line of his Indiana regiment. The Mexicans had sta tioned some small guns on a neighboring height, which were blazing away most furi ously oil General Lane's regiment, liut as their guns were badly nritned, tho balls in every case passed over their heads, but sufli ciontly near to cause the men, as they heard the peculiar whiz of tho balls, to involuntarily " duck " their heads. General Lane happened to notice this, and in his rough, stentorian voice, he bawled out: " Indiana regiment! No dodging!" Tn nbout five minutes after, the tremendous whiz of a twenty-four pound shot passed close by the head of the gallant brigadier, and in an instant involuntarily he bobbed his head. Tho men saw this, and commenced a tittering along the line, which the old General saw. Turning around with a sort of quizzical ex pression, he thundered out: "Indiana regiment! Dodgo the big ones!" CURE FOB TUB EABACIIE.— Take a small piece of cotton batting, or cotton wool, mak ing a depression in tl»e cvntru with the end of n finger, and fill it with OH much ground pepper as will rest on a five cent piece, gather it into a hall and tie it up, dip th* l<nll into oil, nnd insert it into the ear, covering the latter with cotton wool, nnd use a bandage or cap to retain it in place.

Hut fortunately, the law has bridled a mau't | tongue apninst his neighbor, by i: proeceuiion for slander, n criminal process for riot or dis llulling tbe peace; this, then, is freedom of ppeech limited, so ft:r as individuals are con cerned, ami against it we bear n») complaint, llut tbe Government lnis no such remedies. It must tamely submit to the grossest misrep resentations and falsehoods, or curtail tlio freedom of speech of its enemies. kTbenjn stnntly the cry is raised—'The freedom of speech suppressed, tyranny and the Bastile next!' but if the individual is protected against slander and falsehood, it is but right that the Government, in perilous times, should protect itself. " Freedom of speech was wisely protected by the Constitution, but was not intended tbat it should extend to the corruption of morals, or by misrepresent ion and falsehood to embarrass the Government. But it was intended for n more noble and glorious pur pose, that of fairly, truthfully and honestly discussing and expressing such principles and sentiments, with a due regrad to your neigh bor, your country and your God, and without fear and restraint, as you may think ju6t and l ight. The discussion of politics nnd religion, in fact every subject, when confined within the bounds of truth and fairness, should bo protected. "The liberty of the press must also be taken in a restrict sense. It is a notorious fact that obscene publications will find an abundance of supporters, but tlio law very wisely prohib its the publication of such sheets, and here is the liberty of the press infringed, because the proprietors are not permitted to cast upon tbo public an immoral p< stilence. The law pre vents n newspaper from publishing a false hood against an individual, l»y snbjecting it to a prosecutiou for libel. But the Govern ment has no remedy against the fabrications and misstatements of hostile papers. Its only protection lays in its own power, and when it exercises that power, the cry of tyranny is at once raised. If a journal confined its state ments to absolute tiuth aud facts, and to tbo exposition of a bad policy founded on thoso facts, then its suppression would be an act of tyranny and an overreach of Government power. But such was not the character of the papers that have been suppressed. Their only object seemed to be to irritate the public mind, to cut etill deeper the wounds of dis cord and dissention, make thorn bleed anew every day, inculcate dissatisfaction with the Government and create riot and bloodshed in our very midst. Tbe reading public will not regret the loss of these journals. TUB IRREPRRESIBLR REPORTER. —CoIoneI Baker's funeral ceremonies took place at Webb's.
