Wo learn from Mr. Waterman, the new Su perintendent of Indian Affairs for this distiict, that a change will bo made in the mode of disbursing Indian appropriations upon this coast, so as to avoid the issue of vouchers, as has been the practice to a greater or less ex tent heretofore. We are glad of this. Tho policy cf paying cash down for all purchases made or services rendered, is tho only safe and economical one for the Government, and we hope Mr. Waterman will not, like his prede cessor, bo compelled to wait six or eight mouths for remittances after they are due, thus involving the necessity of issuing "promises to pay" or tho suspension of ope rations of the service. It is a disgrace to the Indian Department that just and equitable claims upoirthe Government for goods fur nished and services rendered two or three years ago are still unpaid. We would not be understood as attaching blame to the farmer Superintendent for these ruinous ch lays of payment. Tlicy were incurred beforo he took charge of the office, and the authority to audit and pay them was cxprcs-ly denied him and transferred to Washington. While we believe that Mr. Hale's removal was unjust, we are r.ot disposed to quarrel with the Department about it, tynceagood and officient man has been nppointcil in his place, but will aid the new Superintendent in his efforts to reform the service. We hope Mr. Waterman will not be disappointed in his expectation of receiving prompt remit tances from Washington. Should they be delayed six or eight months, as lias been the case in several instances heretofore, lie will be obliged to resort to tho old system of issuing " promises to pay," or suspend the operations of the service. While the Secretary of the Interior is en gaged in improving the mode of disbursing the Indian appropriations on this coast, we hope he will devote a littlo attention to the mode of disbursing the appropriations of tho land department. We can perceive no good reason why deputy surveyors should not be paid for their work when it is completed and approved by the Surveyor General, as was tho practice under former Administrations, instead of being compelled to wait for it from three to six mouths as they now do. If the appropriations were placed at tho disposal of the Surveyors General upon this coast, it would save to the deputies at least ten per cent, on their contracts. The price per mile has been rednced under this Administration from 812 to 98, while tho expenses of the deputies have greatly increased. The eight dollars per mile is now paid in paper, worth 41 ceuts on the dollar. Deduct from this the ten per cent, loss, by unnecessary delay of payment, and the deputy realizes less than three dollars per uiile in place of twelve, as ' formerly. Wo believe thu Government will! be disposed to to save to them tho ten per I cent, when this can be done by applying the ' same rule to the l.nd department in the dis bursement of appropriations that is applied to every other department of the Government.

I:i vie w ol tie action of the President regiril ir._' the matter, we are indiued tj believe that Mr. Lincoln d tic!ed tlm spurious «ji!ulity o» iheir mettle fv«>tn tli»> first, sounded their ob ieet, and hei'.c.', probably not without a Hnaek i :g « f >lv humor, appointed to receive tin m the verv man of all others they loast expected to meet. Finding that their hypocritical dodpc wouldn't go down with the President, thev nt once avowed their true character, dis- claimed being ."gents for the C'onf derate Gov ernment, but avert d they were "eutirely fa miliar \vi:l> its wishes and opinions." In mis they without question told the truth. There is every reason to believe that tho Copper heads are " familiar with the wishes ami opinions" of the rebels, and that this neat litilu ruse was concoeted by the united wis d.rni of rebels North and South. We hare it upon the authority of their leading organs and speakers 1 lint tho secession leaders have never entertained the most remote idea of peace upon any other basis than that of an unconditional recognition of the independence ofthi South—the object for which the war was inaugurated. Tho "best laid plans" often fail, and we are not surprised that this bungling attempt should have rcsidtcd so much to the discomfiture of tho bogus com missioners. As the matter rests, the Copper head party have no opportunity to frame a plalfonn which will deceive the honest masses. Their hypocrasy is known, and this glaring act of duplicity sinks them but lower in the estimation of all honest, right-minded men. pHRsoNM,.—Our friend, Maj. Francis, of the pay department, arrived in town on Thurs day last, lie has been to the military posts at San Juan and Steilacoom to pay the U. S. troops there stationed, lie looks hale and hearty, and bids fair to do good service for the Government for many years to come. Maj. Frrnvis is a veteran typo, having established one of the first papers printed in the State of Illinois, lie sold his pap -r, the Illinois Jour nal, several years ago, and came to Oregon in the Fall of 18.1!). He did good service in the canvass of INGO, as editor of the Oregon tan, and was appointed Paymaster in tho regular army by his old friend, Mr. Lincoln, in tho Summer of ISGI. He is now stationed at Fart Vancouver. A more honest or worthy man could not have been found for the posi tion he occupies. TUB SOUND TRADB. —A communication has been handed us reflecting severely upon Collector Gunn fegarding the admission of the British steamer Alexandra to the privilege of "coasting" upon tho Sound, We know but little of the merits of the case, and for this reason forbear from expressing an opinion. We believe it suicidal policy on the part of our citizens, however, to aid in driving from our waters a steamer suitable for the service at all seasons of the year, for the purpose of saying a few dollars on passage or freight. The Anderson is well adapted for the trade, and her place, especially in the winter months, cannot well bo supplied. This fact will be come more obvious when we lose her. THE MAILS. —The mails arc now arriving in the old schedule time, thirty-six hours from Portland. It is with sincere pleasure that we chronicle this evidence of a disposi tion to do tho people justice, though tho wrong has been long and grievously felt. We aro willing to forget past delinquencies, if we can now be assured that wo shall receive our mails within the reasonable time fixed in the old schedule. The P. Tribune says that gold has been discovered at Chehalis Point in paying quantities with the " limited amount of machinery" used. We presume it will pay better hereafter, as the " machinery" to which our cotetnporary alludes is of the most prim ative sort —a pan and a shovel. • .

TIIB ROAD MHETINO I.AST SAITRIIAY.— Pursuant to previous notice, an adjourned meeting of tho citizens of Thurston county was held at the District School-house on Satnrdav, the Gth inst. to receive and con sider the report of the road-viewers. 'I l;e mcttiag was called to order by Judge Cur-h --man, and the report read and accepted. The meeting was addressed at considerable length by Messrs. Longmire, 1 licks, Browning, Sparks, and others. Tho prevaling opinion seemed to be that the road could not by completed in time for tho present year's em • igration. In consideration of this view, and the necessarily imperfect exploration made in the limited time afforded the viewers, it was, on motion, decided that, the Committee appointed at tho previous meeting (consisting of Messrs. McLatie, Miller, 15eaeh, Longmire and Winsor) be instructed to co-operate with the citizens of Lewis county, to secure if pos iblo a thorough examination of the various routes through tho Nisqually Pass, and to open subscriptions to d efray the expenses of the same. It was tltought if this was dene a much preferable route could be selected, and completed at a moderate expense c.'uly next reason. We hope and trust tlx com mittee will meet with the proper encouiage mont from our citizens, and that a party of efficient viewers will be immediately sent out to make a thourough examination. If this is done wo may expect that something will be done in time for next year's emigra tion. Operations, this year were unfortunate ly commenced too late iu the season. Every thing that can be urged, has been said of th,< paramount importance of this enterprise, and it bnt remains for the people to art. We re peat, let the exploration be at once made. The lukc-warm disposition of our citizens has well nigh ruiucd the Sound country. If we expect to take a start forward we must begin now. IIOI.I.OAVAY'S OINTMENT. —Bad Legs, Wounds, Ulceis, and all descriptions of Sores nre cured by tho proper aud diligent use of this inestimable preparation. To attempt to cure bad legs by plastering tho edges of the wound together is folly, for, should the skin unite, a boggy, diseased condition remains underneath to break out with tenfold fury in a few days. The only rational and successful treatment, as indicated by nature, is to reduce the inflammation in and about the wound —to soothe the neighboring nerves—tc. cool tho heated blood as it courses along its vessels — and to render tlio thin, watery, ichorous dis charge consistent and healthy. Holloway's Pills should be taken at the same time, to pu rify the blood, and expel the obnoxious hu mour from tho system. 3 The Anderson will probably not leave for down-Sound until tho latter part of next week. A regulation requires an inspection of her hull, boilers and machinery, and slio will awuit the arrival of an inspector. NEW POSTJIA.BTEB. —A Washington letter says that Chas.

McCook, to destroy the Macon and Western road. They had destroyed 18 miles of the road from where they started, and had impturcd a train ot five hundred wagons that were going from Atlanta to Macon or Colum bus. A train was captured near Newman, with .100 men and 127 officers. The wagons were laden with valuable stores, liquors and the private property of Gen. Ilood aud others. After possessing themselves of what they wrntcd, the wagons were burned. McCook started to return with the booty, but was over taken by a rebel lorce under Uaiisotn, which was so large as to completely surround him. A desperate engagement ensued, during which many of MiCook's men escaped and found their way to Marietta. It is supposed that about 2,000 were captured. The disaster is attributable to the troops partaking too freely of lad liquor that was found iu the captured train. Xitshrille,Aiig 4.—Gen. McCook, supposed to have been captured near Newman, came in with 1,200 of his men. .100 had previously arrived at Marietta. He was very successful in breaking the Macon road, and capturing and destroying the wagons and railroad trains, but was compelled to let the prisoners go. Cairo, Aug. i>. —Nrw Orleans dates to the 29th have been received. Gen. Banks has officially acknowledged the exchange of prisoners, who have recently ar rived, and has ordered those belonging to the 13th and 1 Oth corps to report to the proper officers for duty, aud these whose term have • spired to proceed to their respective States and be mustered out of service. St. Louis, Aug. 4.—C01. Baker, Chief of the National Detective Police, who has been here for several days on official business, has succeeded in ferretting out the most extensive and successful gang of counterfeiters ever known in tho United States. Fourteen of the gang were double ironed. Five large boxes of material nro now 011 their way to Wash ington. Other parties arc to be arrested. Eleven presses aud a largo quantity of hnnk note paper, ink and twelve plates, including the twenty dollar greenbacks, tons and fifties of United States Treasury notes, now issue, wcro secured. St. Louis, Aug. s.—The Demerat of this morning contains the essential points of the confession of G. 1). Smith, Secretary of the order of American Kuights. Chas. S. Hunt and Chas. E. Dunn, Grand and Deputy Grand Commanders, have asked for a re examination in which they have acknowl edged their former statements to be untrue, and admitted the existence of the order and their membership. This confession gives many details of the workings and purposes of t..e order, but reveals no new facts of impor tauee. Xeir York, Aug. o.—The Richmond Ex aminer of the 3d has a dispatch from the rebel General I verso ti, saying Stoneuaan had sur rendered to liiiu with "'OO men. A di-patch Jated Griffin, .'tOth, *ay» Atlan ta hi* been furiously bulled for two days and carlv that morning Cheathun was attacked. The I'nion forces were easily repulsed, with no loss to the rebels. A I'nion force raptured Fayettevillc 011 the Stub. They burnt wag on* and tore up railroad tracks. See. i'himso, Awj. t»-—t he Cineiunati Com• mririut contain# fuiilur particulars of the hat tie «if the 2Ntli. About two v. M., on Tuesday, signal oilicors of the 15th corps reported to (•en.

I'poa this an h jnce m- nt. oar troops began to thro* up-vori s. We had hardly time to complet- the defences of rails without a shovel full of earth, when the rebels ruehi-d upon them with treat ein pctuofiiy and drove our tnen in this way some distance. Abcut noon the rebel* evidently thtngbt t!»-y had made a circuit aaßcicnt to bring them upon oar flask, Uil tbey were mistaken and cam* in front of amr breast works, and the wo K|S were M dense that it ia doubt ful if they could hav« s.-en the extent at the works ; and bc*id •* prisoner* state that the leader* represented to them that we were re trea'iug and nerd only to be attacked with »pint to rout ns. Heaviest shock of aa*ault was felt on the 2d and 4th divisions, and for a time it was not ctfrtaiu thai would b« able to hold the position. Finally a reinforcement of one regiment j«diciou*ly distributed determined the question, and the r.tx-ls were driven back with severe loss. They were, however, nv»t to L« thus easily di*comfitted. From n->on until neirly night, the tiring was incessant, swelling o.it into fierce ro.irs a* tb« rebels charged our lines, and dviug away as they retired. During the afternoon, the rebels made seven distinct charges and two more after nightfall in the vain attempt to recover the hundreds of dead a'id dying', who had fillen near our lines. Ail these were useless •hough they kept gradually moving to our right, HO that each assault threatened more and more to swing around and flank us. Our force was enough and only enough to pre vent a disaster from this cause. During the day the 4th corps captured live collors and one thousand stand ol arms. < >ur center ntid li lt confined their operations entirely to mak ing di mouptrations to nttractthe attention from the right wing. The troops did not come to close quarters on this part of the line. Saratoga Springs, Aug. 2.—The work men 011 tho Adairnnback Bailroad aro oil a strike, which promised serious results. The rioters nro 800 in number, and nrc diiving the Germans from the works. Several ar rests have been made. A collision between the Irish and Germans id confidently ex pneted. ('ario, Aug. 2.—The New Orleans dates to the 20th of July, states that the Constitu tional Convention adjourned the day before, and is to be convened again in case the Constitution is not ratified by the people. Hefore the adjournment of the Convention, by a vote of 08 to 8, they adopted a preamble and resolutions denouncing State rights. State sovereignty is interpcted that they have been justifications for secession, and are sub versive of our form of Government and are tending to confusion, anarchy and National destruction. They also passed the following: Resolved, We hold our primary allegiance is due to the Government of tho United States, the Constitution and the laws of the United States as the supreme law of the land, anything in tho Constitution and the laws of any State to the contrary, notwitnstanding any State Convention, whether its facility is representing people or not, has any right to absolve its form of allegiance ; consequently the act commonly called the ordinance of se cession has alwAvs been null and void. lie/wired, That we are in favor of so amend ing the Constitution of tho United States as to secure the entire abolition of slavery throughout tho United States. Lieut.-Gov. Wells has issued a proclama tion directing the election for the ratification or rejection of the Constitution adopted by the Convention, to be held ou the first Monday iu September. Si. Louis, Aug. 3.—Advices have been received from the Plains to the effect that the Apachc.7, Coinanchcs and Arapahoes, num bering nearly a thousand, were committing serious depradations on the Sauta Fa road. All the horses and mules belonging to Fort Lamed, and 130 horses belonging to the Colorado battery were captued within a quar ter of a mile of the fort. In additiou to this emigrants havebceu robbed and their wagons entirely destroyed. At last accounts the Indians wore threaten ing the fort where but seventy-five men were stationed. One hundred thousand dollars worth of provisions were given these Indians at Fort. Lamed a few day before committing these depredations. The Tribune's special at Fredrick last night has the following confirmation of the repirtcd defeat ef rebels at Cumberland: Gen. Kelly it is reported was attacked at Cumberland yesterday at 0 r. M., by a large force under Bradly Johnson nna McCausland. After a severe fight of several hours, they completely routed the enemy capturing several caissons, a great many wagons, and a vast amount of plunder Btolen iu Pennsylvania. New York, Aug. 3.—Early's headquar ters are at Winchester. A detachment of rebel cavalry is still on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. It is becoming apparrent to fhe war De partment, that tho rebels aro resolved on a vigorous campaign on the Upper Potomac, and are reinforcing Early strongly. Dispatches from Somerset, received at 10 o'clock this evening, mentions a fight at New Creek, in which the rebels were defeated by Kelly. Our loss is '29 killed and 60 wound ed. A dispatch from Giencnstle states: A gentleman just arrived from tiiere says the rebels were crossing at Williamsport between 6 and 12 o'clock. There were from 600 to 800 infantry and cavalry. Harrithurg, Afg. s.—At 8 o'clock to night telegraphic communication ceaseJ be yond Newcastle. The rebels have entered Middlebnrg.il iniies north of Hagerstown, hut in what force is not known. The movements of the ene my are utterly inexplicable. They seem de termined to invest their operations with as much mystery as possible both as to numbers, intentions and points of attack. A fight is represented as having taken place at Cumberland, on Tuesday but we have no particulars. .Vfir York, A*e. 6.—The llcraitTs Army correspondence, dated the sth, says: The second division of oar cavalry, under flregg. attneki'd the rebel cavalry vigorously on the Jerusalem road below Petersburg and drove them, inflicting a severe lo»s.
