A "Democratic Scheme, It has been well understood for some time past that a systematic effort was being made by rebel sympathizers to embarrass the ope rations of tbe Government by depreciating the value of the currency, but not until quite recently have they attempted to buy up the Union press to aid them in the accomplish* ment of their wicked and treasonable pur pose. Knowing that the value of all paper money rests upon the confidence entertained by the public in the ability of the party issuing it to ultimately redeem it dollar for dollar in gold, tbey have commenced a systematic effort to undermine this confidence by appeals to the people through the columns of papers pro fessing unwavering fidelity to the Adminis tration and its policy of prosecuting the war until the last rebel shall ground his arms and submit to the authority of the Government. As long as these mischievous articles criti cizing the financial policy of the Government and predicting the ultimate worthlcssness of the paper currency, were confined to Copper head journals, but little, comparatively, was accomplished in this direction, and hence the scheme to secure their publication in Admin istration journals. Aware that no Union pa per would voluntarily copy them, they first procure a publication in such mercenary sheets as the N. Y. Herald, and then these articles are circulated in slips as taken from the paper iu which they originally appear, and are sent to Union papers with a request to publish as a matter of news, and if this is de clined, to insert as advertisements, and send bill to their agents in the Atlantic States for payment, one of these slips was received by as, and to give our readers an idea ef its char acter and puipose, we copy from it the follow ing: "Owing to the movements of speculators in gold the dnpreciathn of our present paper money has not been as regular as was that of the continental currency, but its decline seems quite as certain, unless something is done to check its downward course." All who reflect a moment will observe that there is aot the slightest analogy between the old continental currency and the present papers issues of the Government. If compared with the Confederate currency the aualogy would hold good. In continental times, no provision was made for the redemption of their currency, nor was there any revenue raised for paying interest upon it. The country was poor, and engaged in what then appeared to be a hopeless struggle for separ ate national existence. Now wc ere the most powerful Government on earth, with a reve nue which will yield the current year at least four hundred millions. Ample provisiou is made for the payment of the six per crnt. in terest, in coin. Notwithstanding all this, the devilish attempt ia made to impress the be lief npon the public that the bonds of the Government will sson become as worthless as the continental money at the dose of the war of the Revolution. The annexed extract, which we copy from the Richmond Examiner, pointa out ho* its " Democratic" friends North can best serve the rebel cause. If anybody has entertained a doubt heretofore that these Northern allies are Ia fell syaspathy with the rebellion, and acting ia concert with them in their struggle to divide the Union, each pnblicationa as theee aad the action of the Chicago Conven tion most reosere them. The rebel organ says traly that " the most effectual way tor the ' Democracy' to get the control of the Government is to do their ataaost to weakea the Fffasl amy and discredit Frderal finance.** Meet vigorously are thry at week for the aeeoaaptiahwnt of theee pnrpoee*. and it is a aouce ef great grief to as tin.

ED. STANDABD : Sir: lam a down-ennter and nm therefore licensed to be inqnisitive; have lived in " Egypt" and therefore licensed to be stupid. Will you permit me according ly to inquire why no attempt has been made to arrest the Indian murderers of the man killed at Pisht river last winter ? 1 under stand that a party of citizens of Port Angeles, organized for that purpose, were prevented by an Indian Agent—who counseled them to trust the law—from pursuing their purpose to fulfillment. With all respect for the good intentioned Agent, I must distrust the power of the law entirely, when I see that the sum mer has nearly passed away and with it appa rently all intention to execute justice.

PERSONAL. —Mnj.-Gen McDowell arrived at this place by the Cutter SAubrick on Hun day evening last, and left the next morning at 6 o'clock, overland for Fort Vancouver. He was called upon by most of our citizens who were apprized of hie arrival, all of whom were much pleaacd with the General, and the man ner of their reception. The people of the coast are certainly very fortunate in having him assigned to this Department, lie is evidently an energrtie, discreet officer, and every way qualified for the discharge of the delicate and very responsible duties assigned him.

Quite an alarm haa been created among tbo*e who*e holding position* under UK GOT. rrnint-nl and receiving their pay ia paper car reocy, by a further depreciation ia legal lea der notes, which now command bat tatty cents on tlw dollar, ia " trade.** We note in thia connection, one peculiar fact, wbich must be apparent to all. When gold and sil ver was tbe ooly currency, much competition existed between trades men, and the buyer could take advantage of fluctuating prices, snd buy where he could obtain bis supplies cSeapest. This is not so now. The intro duction of paper currency was the signal far an understanding among our business men. and a general healing up of old rivalries, and the ~ (Myiupia Stock Hoardif it does not wit Id tbe iufluencc of Wall street, ita edicts are quite as immutable. We should not ob ject to this, if we could believe that tbe move ment was inaugurated to aave actual loss ; but we surely expected to see the usual rivalry common to business men, instead of a united phalanx to maintain the ruinous prices charged for every ataple article of common necessity, and at the same time place the Government currency at a figure which will compel every man who depends upon Gov ernment alone for his means of livelihood to ' literally go ragged and hungry. As the mat ter now rests, they are the only losers on this coast, to any great degree, from the hardships ' incident to the war. Those whose salaries : range from a thousand to eighteen hundred dollars, it would appear, have no alternative left them but to either abandon their positions or literally stint themselves, and drug out an existence subject to the whim or caprice of the merchants and business men, who, upon tbe principle of " might makes right," are in reality their masters. The mer chant who receives currency at a given figure, aud exchanges it in the markets below at the same rate for supplies. loses nothing; but should it happen that lie loses five or ten per cent, upon a single transaction, the town re sounds with his lamentations and lie is indeed disconsolate. He appears oblivious of the fact that the transaction but reduces his pro fits on that amount one-fourth or one-sixth, and that instead of losing he really makes n profit wbich should satisfy all clamor. Now we believe that Government employees should not be tbe only class who should sutler. We believe that the burdens and hardships of tho present hour should be borne by nil alike, or at least nearly so. Many of the positions held under Government have laborious duties attending them, for the ptopcr discharge of which the pay apportioned in coin is no more than a fair equivalent; and in all cases, time may be justly considered a fair representative of money. Wc would not counsel a course which we believe would be uufair to cither iutcrcst, nor do we intend to be so understood, but we are couvinced that more accommodat ing terms could be advanced for those whose bretfd and butter is to be bought with green backs, and greenbacks alone. Our business men should reflect that so far as our town is concerned, with the very moderate zeal and enterprise manifested for the past five years, it would have gone to the dogs had it not received the no inconsiderable patronage of the Government employees. We submit, if it would not be good policy on the part of busi ness men to seriously consider these sugges tions. This point is not so isolated from the San Francisco market that supplies cannot be bought by an association of parties interested at prices quito as low as the merchants can command; and if tbe profit s realized by trad ers be added to the wholesale price paid be low, a saving may be effected which will make their their greenbacks realize from 65 to 75 ceots on the dollar. We would likewise suggest that threats of a black-list should not be heard until tho in tentions of those for whom they are designed are indicatod by at least one instance which would render such a course oxcusable. We believe in presuming every man honest until the contrary is proven. In ordinary circum stances, to pay a coiu debt in a depreciated currency can be regarded in no other light than robbery, but there are palliating circnmstan ces when necessity renders such a course the only alternative short of bankruptcy. This is surely the view taken in the enactment of stat utory provisions reserving a homestead, the immediate means of subsistence, or the tools of a trade from liability to seizure tor debt. If such a breach of faith justifies a violent remedy as a pledge to refuse credit to all who receive Government currency at its face, how roueh more reprehensible it is in a merchant to buy greenbacks to pay at par a debt con tracted in coin! Here the plea of necessity cannot prevail, uor an actual loss upon every dollar art aa a palliating rime, but snch an individual r boa Id receive the fall odium that Mich aa act carries with it.

It would have been better to have been ten per cent., for we believe that every five JHT cent, levied upon incomes will raise the price of Treasury notes felly twenty per cent, soon as it reaches the Treasury. The five per ci-nt. levy will yield over #100,000,000. This added to the revenue of ISC4, will not fall much short of five hundred million. This surely does not look tnucli like the credit of the Government depreciating until its paper becomes t.s vulueli ss as continental scrip in the days of Ihe Revolution, ns "Democrats" nre laboring to make the people believe. The present rate of taxation will pny the inlcrrstat the rate of six per cent, per annum on three billion of dollars, and pay the prin cipal within the next fifteen years, allowing our annua) expenditures besides. Who then can sny that there is any adequate cause for the present depreciation of the cur rency. No sensible man will doubt that it has been induced by exciting popular alarm as to the stability of the Government, uud its ultimate ability to pay and disposition to meet all its pecuniary liabilities. In other words, the " Democratic party are willing to ride into power upon the ruin of the National finances, and sacrifice even the life of the Government rather than fail in their object.

Our troops were surprised, many b'i*ig ill tents to escape the rain. The rebels first appeared about noon in front of the 3d division of the 6lh corps. About 3 o'clock P. M., they charged in heavy force between the st«i and 6th corps, and turned the flank of the former, capturing a large number of prisoners. This line was forced back some distance, when the 9th corps which was relieved on the night previous, opened a fire, checking the advance of the enemv and taking some prisoners. A heavy column of rebels at the same time charged the left of our line, west of the railroad, held by the second divission under Qen. Ayres, which they broke, and took 600 prisoners of a regular brigade commnnded by Gen. Hayes. The enemy suffered much, their men lying thick over the field before dark. Our men were re-formed and buing reinforced when a desperate charge was made to recover lost ground which was accomplished. We held at night the line taken from us iu the after noon. Cols. Earl and llawthorne are reported as prisoners nnd Gen. Crawford was shot through the vest and shirt, narrowly escaping capture. Lieut. Clark, of his staff was shoi in the arm. Capt. Smith, of Crawford's staff, had three horses shot under hiin while rallying the men of various commands, and for a short time was a prisoner, but escaped IVeto York, Aug. 13.—The London correspondent of the Herald states thnt the Emperor of the French had just informed Slidell that he would not recognize the rebel States even if they achieve their independence unless they determine to abolish slavery, and engage thit all children born of slaved parents are free.

ILigood's treachery in tho battle of the 21sl: The rebels found themselves under quad ruple fire of m-isketry nnd artillery, which caused them to throw down their pieces and raise their arms, which was considered as a surrender. Gen. Butler sent Capt. Daley of his staff, to receive them as prisoners. Our men having ceased firing, Capt. Daley told Hagnod he tad been sent to receive him and his brigade as prisoners, and when without saying a word, llagood drew his revolver and shot Daley. The Captain lived about half an hour—only long enough to mak« a state ment that H igood, after shooting Daley, cal led on his men to pick up their muskets and (all back, which they attempted to obey. Our men again fired, when they threw down their pieces the second time. This time they gave themselves up as prisoners. The second volley added largely to the number killed. Among the killed is Hagood, who wos shot through the head. The number of prisouers is between five and six hundred. After two tiours fighting, the battle ended. The same :orrcspondent states that the rebels state that Glen. Hood was killed on that day. A special to the Timet dated Washington 23d, savs officers have just arrived from the :ront report an attack made Sunday upon our eft bv Gen. A. P. Hill.

The Assistant Collector was calmly seated at the breakfast tabic of one of our hotels, when n waiter approached with a huge coffe-pot, pouring coffee for the guestc as ho went the round of the tabic.

Memphis, Aug. 21.—Memphis vu at tacked at 4 o'clock this morning by Gen. Forrest with three brigade* of cavalry, 3,000 strong. They left Smith's front at Oxford on the 18th, and made a forced march to this city, drove in the pickets and dashed direct ly to Washburn's headquarters, who had a nirrow escape. They then went to Buck land's headquarters, hut he also escaped. They attacked Irving prison but were re pulsed by the guard. They next visited Gayos' house, expecting to capture Gen. Hurlburt, but he was stopping at the house of a friend. Our troops now attack the rebels and soon drove them from the city, killing 30 and wounding 100. They captured 30 or 40 horses but had no time to plunder. Our loss is about the same as that of the rebels. Washburn" will carry out a plain which it expected to result in the capture of a large portion of the attacking party.
