We alluded last week to this law, and showed that the "legal tender" clause was in strict accordance with the Constitution of the United States. We now propose to notice its policy , and its effect upon the country by furnishing a circulating medium. Before do ing this, however, it is proper that we should allude briefly to the history and origin of this treasury note scheme of finance; and we do .this for the purpose of showing that whatever of merit or demerit may now or hereafter at tach to the system, it belongs to the Demo cratic party as organized under the leadership of Gen. Jackson and Thomas li. Benton, aud that it is the ligitimate fruit yielded by the sub-treasury system of Martin Van Buren, now acquiesced in by all parties as the safest and best system of depository ever devised by man. It will be recollected that Mr. "Benton al ways contended that the issue of bank paper by States or corporations, was a violation of that clause of the Constitution which denies to the States the right to issue bills of credit; but he was over-ruled by a majorty of the people, in consequence of their having become identified in interest with the system of credit, introduced into the country by the system of banking which sprung up under the Adminis tration of Gen. Jackson, as a. consequence of putting down the old United States Bank. The Democracy very soon found they had committed a capital error in the encouraging of State banks, to supply the place occasioned by the withdrawal of the circulation of the United States Bank paper; and they were subsequently compelled to abolish State banka and adopt the sub-treasury to save the coun try from bankruptcy and ruin, which they saw was inevitable as a consequence of over-trad ing; and Mr. Vau Bureu had patriotism and boldness enough to issue the specie circular, which created a general crash of our banks, deranged temporarily the business of the whole country, and, as was to have been ex pected, resulted in a most overwhelming de feat of the Democracy by the Whig, or rather United States Bank Party. The first dose by the Harrison Administration was to repeal the obnoxious sub-treasury, and pro cure a re-charter of the United State* Bank, the latter of wlurh was prevented l.y Tyler's treat hil l. Two years after a IVasocratic majnmv ia Ceagrias re-enacted the ml tries ary law. aad m> disposition haa brea mani fested hy eiter party rincc that time to dis turb it.

In the Sr*i place. it will furbish to the Government the Belli* "f nn-et- the present large expenditure* on more favorable term* than could be doo» by ordi- nary loan*. and save a very large euro to the nation in the shape of profits thai would oth erwise go into the pocket* of public and pri vate l«nkrr», who have hitherto furnished the paper circulating medium of the couutiy. So long a* then* is confidence among the peo ple in the permanency of our Government, there can lie no depreciation of the currency; and, besides, if the balance of trade i» in our favor, an it *liould be, and no doubt hereafter w ill be, the notes will be a* pood in London and Pari* as in New York City and San Francisco. The question may be afcked how one hun dred millions of treasury notes can be made to pay three or Jour hundred millions in the course of the year, that being about the ag gregate expenses of the Government. There will be raised by duties on imports and taxes some two hundred millions, all of which must bo paid in specie. The Government will have this large amount of specie to pay the interest on the debt, and as a basis for the treasury note circulation of one hundred mil lions. The Government debt is already about three hundred millions. Now suppose the treasury will be compelled to borrow two hundred millions more, making a debt of five hundred millions to pay interest upon the present year. This will require thirty mil lions of specio, leaving one hundred and thirty millions at the disposal of the Government for the redemption of treasury notes when presented for specie. The one hundred mil lions is issued and paid out as wanted. If a loan is required of one hundred millions, it is taken by capitalists, and they pay for Gov ernment bonds, drawing six per cent, per an num and payable in twenty years, iu this one hundred million dollars of treasury notes; and they arc again paid out to the Govern ment creditors. When exhausted, another loan is made for any amount required for car rying 011 the Government. We have assumed that four hundred millions will be required for the current year, aud that one-half will be collected from duties and taxes in specie, and the other half raised by loan in the way suggested. The Government will bo able to give creditors their choice of specie or treasu ry notes, and so long as the balance of trade with Europe is in our favor, merchants and large Government creditors will prefer the notes to specie, just as they used to prefer the notes of the old United States Bank. The notes will give to the country a sound circu lating medium, in place of the paper of the " thousand and one " local banks. We think the Secretary of the Treasury, Mr. Chase, has displayed great ability in this scheme of finance, and we feel sure his policy will meet the almost universal approbation of our people. It will save to this coast a very large amount now paid for eastern exchange. iy The Telegraph of the 14 th contains the following paragraph: ANOTHBR LIB FASTENED.— "The Olympia Standard, some time ago stated, • that Judge Wyche had expressed grave doubU in his opinion, as to the legality of the act locating the Capitol at Vancouver.' A perusal of the opiuion will at once satisfy the reader «K»« the directly opposite was the truth, showing that not even a suspicion of doubt rested upon his mind in the matter." In our issue of December 28th. in noticing an attempt on the part of the Telegraph to mien-present the majority of the Court ou the Capitol question we said: "Thoae who listened to the opinion of Judge Wyche will bear as out in saying that he expensed great damht of the validity of the law lor want of eMct acting power, and that he conceded that the weight ef authority requited the eaariiag power to he expressed."

Hut they had passed none, and the vote shows tlint they did not intend to commit the Democratic party of the Territory to any support of the war measured of the Administration, and this being their determination they acted consist ently in voting against the resolutions. The secession leaders were engaged in rallyingthe Democracy 011 the " Peace Platform" of the Advertiser, and the vote on these resolutions furnished a good opportunity to further their base schemes. They knew that if these reso lutions were defeated none would be passed. They knew that none had been passed, and that unless the same set of resolutions were adopted by both Houses, none would appear on the journals as having been adopted by the Legislature. The journal of the House sim ply shows that the third reading of Mr. Griswold's resolutions relative to the Union, the yeas and nays being called, resulted in their rejection. Eight Kepublicans voted for and sixteen Democrats voted against them. The Republicans voted for them because they approved of thein, and it is certainly fair to presume that the Democrats voted against them because the disapproved of them, and hence the efforts of our Democratic friends of the Press, Telegraph and Herald, to justify their vote on the ground falsely assumed that the resolves were of a partisan character. Wo will keep tbo resolutions, just ns pub lished by tho Public Printer, with the vote theroon, at tho head of our columns for a few weeks, so that no question may be raised as to their being correctly quoted. Tho people are competent to judge of the loyalty of those men who deliberately voted aguinst them. If any of the gentlemen plead ignorance of what they were doing, as an excuse for voting ogainst them, and will publicly avow them selves in favor of the resolutions, wo will give them credit for loyalty, whatever we may think of their ability as legislators. Of tho four gentlemen who did not vote on the reso lutions, we are confident that Messrs. Wil liamson and Ferguson would have voted yea, had they been in their seats. How Messrs. Yantia and McLane would have voted we have no means of judging—they can answer to their constituents. TIM Mew Dodge of the Telegraph. It will be recollected that the first apology offered by the Telegraph for the action of its Democratic friends on the Union Resolutions, was, that to have adopted them aa published " would have compromised a huge majority of the people of the Territory." and it attempted to fix upon us the charge of adding a qualify ing dance to the third resolutien. uhtrh it in sisted changed their mm character.

He now threaten- to retwj against the leptl au thorities of the (ioYt-romeat if the l're»ident d«ea Dot remove llr. Victor Smith at once. We do not think President Lincoln will be very likelv to lie iuftnenced bv threats <4 tbia • • • kind. All this froth and fun cornea nearer a " tern peat in a teapot" thau anything we have ever witnessed, and will prove juot about aa distructive. We are by no means di«p<*ed to juatify thc act complained of, if it was done on the ground of preference for a subject of Queen Victoria over one of our ow n citizens. On the contrary, we are opp<*ed, as a general thing, to even going out of the Territory for men to fill the subordinate positions in the (iovemment offices. Still cases may occur when it would be proper to employ an unnat uralized foreigner temporarily, until the place could be filled with one of our own citizens competent to discharge the duty required. We understand from Mr. Smith, that nothing more than this was intended in tho present case. It is not to be wondered at that he should feel constraintcd to go outside of Port Townsend for a deputy, if it ho true that they sympathize with and encourage the course of the North- 1 Vest in threats, not oidy to resist the authorities of the Government hut to hang its Collector by the neck without judge or jury. That this has been done, will be seen seen by the following extract we make from their paper of the 15th instant: " A more bnre-fared nnd wanton insult to nil Americans is unrecorded in the annnls of our na tion ; n'ld were it not for :i confident hope that the Collector will be regarded nnd taken enre of by the proper authorities ns insane, we should at once implore our fellow-citizens against any rhul lition of temper, lest thev become justly excited, nnd swing nnothrr suit of clothes to tho Custom House flap; staff with different stuffing. Our peo ple have been bullifd nnd outraged until blame will soon attach tor not showingproper resentment. We think the Collector makers had better send us some more men from the Western States to ntteud to the commercial necessities of this District." As wo understand tbo mat tor, this terrible outrage, which in the judgment of the editor of the North- Ural deserves hanging, consists in tho fact, that the Collector induced an hon est Scotchman, a very competent book-keeper, to become an American citizen, with the un derstanding that he shoald have for n time tho place of deputy collector and book-keeper, not intending any insult or indignity to citi zens of the Territory, lie probably thought that because wo had in our ariny whole regi ments of Highlanders, whoso valor at Bull ltun saved us from a more disastrous defeat than we actually suffered, that nothing would be thought wrong in giving one of their coun trymen a place in the Custom House. While wo are willing to believe that nothing wrong was intended by Mr. Smith, we think it was a very great indiscretion, but not sufficient of itself to justify hanging or even expulsion from office. The North- T Vvtt and its sympa thizers, make the same kind of vindictive war against our unoffending friend, the Surveyor General, against whom we havo yet to hear the first complaint of tho manner in which he has discharged his official duties, or of want of sympathy with the Republicans of the Territory. Hence we conclude that mnch of the hostility of that paper to the Surveyor General, aa well as the Collector, is prompted by its hatred of " importations from the west." If this war on Government officers sent hen* by President Lincoln is to be continued, it need not be a subject of wonder if they should defending their interests and reputations from fkra that will arm be a—ctinasd at Wash ington, and if persisted in by the personal aad political friends a ( mm delegate.

Those who arc fiunilliar with the arguments of tbe Adrerturr will ob serve the very remarkable similarity between the opinions advanced by that treasonable sheet, and the sentiments expressed in these resolutions. The first declares it the "duty of every citizen to aid the Government of the United States in tha preservation of the Un ion." It is not nuido their dnty, in the above, to aid the Administration in prosecuting the war to a successful termination, and to support the measures which have been adopted for crushing the rebellion, as was expressed in the resolve for which it were substituted. Indeed there is nothing -in the resolution quoted which the Advertiser or the most rabid seces sionist would not endorse. Who that has read the Advertiser does not know that while the editor of that paper claims be to for the ion he still insists that the only way for the Government to preserve it is to stop this " Lincoln abolition war on the South"! The language of the second is still more re markable: Resolved, "That the people of Washington Territory deeply sympathize with their brethren of the Southern States of the Union," &c. Very loyal language to apply to men engaged in the infamous work of de stroying tho loyal people of the North by the use of every means in their power, even to the poisoning of wells, springs and provisions, and not a word of sympathy is expressed for the loyal people of the North. The third resolution says the Government "should use ev ry lawful power to suppress the rebellion," See. The Advertiser has said a thousand times, since the war coimn«nced r that it was illegal, uujust, unconstitutional and has prayed that the " arm of the President might be paralyzed," in order that the war against the beloved South should be ended, so of course that editor could vote ibr the resolutions with great propriety. Still the Times says it doeßu'tßee any symp toms of secession in the resolutions. If it will compare the series with that of Mr. Oris wold, aud is now as honest and loyal as we have given him credit for being, we think he will have the magnanimity to retract all he has said against us, by way of bolstering up Hit refusal of our Legislature to endorse the measures which have been adopted by oar Government for putting down rebellion. He certaiuly will correct hia palpable misstate ment in aaying that the above resolutions were adopted by the Legislature. If they had been adopted, the matter would have been even worse. Coarser.—We have the best authority for substantiating the view we took of the squib in the Telegraph a few weeka since, intended to misrepiwset Judge Wyche, of the Ist Judicial District. That paper tried to create the impr>—ion that Judge Wyche dis approved of the new oath, prescribed by the special session of Congress, and administered to all officers of the Government.
