The capture of Atlanta by Sherman ; the surrender of Fort Morgan on Mobile Hay, thus giving us the entire control of that important hatbor. and releasing a large blockading squadron which can now be employed elsewhere; Grant's possession of the Weldon railroad, the main and almost only means of communication with the southern port ion of the Confederacy ; tho overwhelming defeat of Wheeler and Morgan in Tennessee ; the failure of Early in his sec ond attempt to invade Pennsylvania and Ma ryland—the success of our armies in all quar ters, with no serious reverse, presents a most encouraging aspect of affairs. The political news is equally cheering to the friends of tho Administration. The re sult of tho long talked about Chicago '• Dem ocratic" Convention is all that the friends of the Government coujd desire, as it conclu sively shows that there is nothing serious to apprehend from their treasonable machina tions. The fact that they have placed a war man upon a peace and secession platform wiil not fail to disgust all honest peace " Demo crats." Besides, those who have watched McClellan's course since the outbreak of the rebellion, can have no faith in either his hon esty or his sincerity. The election news from Vermont, tlic "first gun" since the nominations have been made, show very large gains to the Adminis tration cause. Grnnt's letter to Washburno indicates very clearly where his political sym pathies are, and cannot fail but have a good influence upon the public sentimrnt of the North. It is undoubtedly true, as General Grant says, thnt the last hope of the rebel cause is centred in the election of a peace President, and that a united North would end the rebellion in a few weeks. The large num ber of deserters who are now coming into our lines, amounting according to Grant's esti mate to a regiment a day, will, if continued, soon break up the rebel army. Tho news received on Tuesday evening last must have been a terrible damper to the hopes of the " Democracy." If Grant could be driveu out of Virgiuia, and the Govern ment credit run down to twenty cents on the dollar, as ha 3 been so confidently predicted and zealously prayed for by Copperheads, they would have some little chance of electing their candidate, McClellan. But in spite of their efforts to accomplish these results, Grant Still holds every position he has gained, aud is steadily but surely contracting his lines upon Ilichmond, and the credit of the Gov ernment is slowly but steadily improving, and the indications are that it will soon be back to where it was before the " Democracy" com menced their systematic efforts to depreciate it as a last effort to aid the rebellion. A GOOD EXAMPJ.E.—WE lunrii from Wash ington that Midshipman K. W. Wry, a nepli •w and ward of our friend Fred. A. Wilson, of Port Townsend, who was appointed to the Naval School from this Territory, some eighteen mouths ngo. is doing much credit to himself and the Territory he icprcsi nts. Instead of pa*>sing his four months va cation as next of the cadets in the S. boo' usually do, he went to Wa»hirgou and applied to the Secretary of th» Xavv for arrive service, and »i> ordtred ton port to Admiral Le--. of the No;th Pacific M.iti'>n, who placed biuiupmi Lit staff. m!.«-ic be Las retxitr'd V,T .

The same instrumentality employed elsewhere would have lieen attended with similar results. The '.cachings of those holy and devout men, Whitman and Spalding, have resulted in raising up, in the Nez Perces nation, u class of religious men and women which will do credit to the most highly civilized commu nities. Their head-chief, Lawyer, is n tal ented Christian man ; and if the Christian world could have been present to hear him be wail the degradation of his people, resulting from association with coirupt, unprincipled whites, and the apparent bad fa'th of the Gov ernnvntt ,hey would rise up rn masse and demand that their churches, school-houses and religious teachers should bo at once re- Stored to them, and they be hereafter protect ed from the invasion of those who not only disregard their present and eternal welfare, but whoso influence and example only tends to debauch ami degrade them. If Governor Lyon receives the support which is his due from Washington, we have no doubt but that all the abuses and grievan ances of which complaint is made, will be re moved, and that hereafter jho Ness l'crces lo tion will hail his arrival among them as the beginning of a new era in their history, only second iu importance to the arrival of Whit man and Spaulding nearly foity years ago. RKTUKXEH.—W. H. Waterman, Esq., Su perintendent of Indian Affairs, returned to this place on Wednesday evening last from a visit of inspection to tho Simcoe reservation. He went by the way of the Columbia river, and returned over the mountains, villi two Indians for guides. They proved to be " blind guides," for they lost the Natchcs trail on which they started, and aficr wander ing about two days, struck the headwaters of the Cowlitz, and shortly afterwards the trail leading from Olympia to Winsor's Silver- Mine, at the foot of Mount llainier. After seven days hard toil in the rain (and it ri'ined every day but the two last) he arrived here looking a little rough and weary, but in ro bust health. It was, altogether, rather a rough introduction to a man from a piaiiie State. We believe he is the fir.-t Superin tendent, if we except Governor Stevens, who has made the trip from the upper Columbia to the Sound, over the mountains. We doubt very much whether he will cnie to make the trip the second time, until a trail is cut which can be more easily followed. However, sev eral persons have lately come through by the Natchcss trail, and report they came through without difficulty, and that but very little la bor will make it a most excellent pack-trail and more than an average wagon road. We hope that before another senson. a road will be op-ned by that or some other ronte, so that emigrants can come thiough to the Sound * ith tlieir wagons and stock without difficulty. We 1. am from Mr. Watemi.-.n that he found everyhing on the Simcoe reservation in a nir>st promising rondition. lit- will vi-it the oth- r Agencies in hi* Sup'-rinteiid-nrv thi* Kali Tie r-i-crva'i non tbe ci«a*t will be vis ited n*-xt •e<L. ?T»*r Hi* ' —The cli fjur orpan. in an n tiweinjr t !i«-«t>r M<«nre'» ad ui-»ioti to the Itr, »ij> •• U•• shall have to that be uk » li;» iw* c~- uu.ier t!w Int. rial Ilev tour l«w, u J ,< ])it mant'< IC' »•-- <x Mt.

It will be seen, therefore, that the Depart ment at Washington and the Court agfee as to the law, and the usigeot the past ten years in this district must yield.

OFFICIAL INII'ISCIIKTION.— a turmoil was kicked up in our usually very quiet vil lage en Tuesd-iy l ist, by Collector Monro en tering our trading establishments with his fitiw, and seizing everything lie could find not stamped in compliance with the new rev enue law. We are satisfied that not the slighted disposition existed on the part of the business men of this pi ice to evade the liw. It was only because they did not un derstand its requirements that they had failed to stamp the articles seized. If, before re sorting to extreme measures, the Collector had yielded a little of his official dignity, and explained fully to parties interested, the spe cific requirements of the new 1 iw, all trouble (yid difficulty would have been avoided, and t.e interest# of the Government equally as well protected. It is very true Mr. Moore had pul lished in a semi-official organ ol the " Democracy" a notice of what was required to be stamped, instead of publishing it in the STAN DAIID, (the official paper of the Govern ment.) as he should have done. The law is unpopular with a portion of the people, who ure unused to the English mode of taxation or who fail to reflect upon the urgent necessity which demanded the enactment of such a law, and we regard it as a grave error for an officer of the revenue to make it more unacceptable than it otherwise would bo by an offensive manner of adiiiiuistciiug it. Since tho above has been placed in type, wc learn that Mr. Moore h is returned the ar ticles seized, being convinced iliat no attempt to evade the law existed. We commend this net. When nn ollicer is convinced that lie has acted hastily, he shows a commendable disposition if he ha* tho moral bravery to acknowledge himself in error. - Holbrook And The Sanitary Fund. We observe that the Oregon press is calling upon Mr. Holhrook to publish an exhibit of his account with the Sanitary fund. It ap peals that upon comparing tho aggregate amounts reported by Mr. Holbroik, and the amount the Dr. Itellows acknowledges to have received, a luge balance stands against Mr. 11. His atti'iitii»*» was directed to the matter several weeks ago, andian exhibit requested, but 110 response has yet been made to the call. A late number of the Oregon Ntah•*- man has a long article in relation to the mat ter, which more than intimates that a portion of the money has been invested in real estate •n Portland and vicinity. Mr. Ilolbrook'sre fusal to make a statement of his account, is calculated to confirm the impression that all is n< t right on his part. The public hare a right to enquire into the manner of di»|>osal of iheir money. If it has b«ru honestly ap plied to the «|Krific purpose f,.r which it «-*» contiibuteJ, it w ill be easy for Mr. llolbio >k to«> show.

Wa-hburne—l>e-ir Sir:—l s'a'e to •'ill citiz n* who vi-it us, thai xll that i* w int i d now to insuiv the early restoration of the I'nion is a determined unity sentim, nt in the No: th. The rebels have now in their ranks thi'ir last man. Hoys :in<l old men are guarding |>> is mors .mil railroad bridges, nnd forming a goodpnitof the garr'sons f>r the intrenched positions. Any man lo>t to them cannot lie replaced. They have robbed the cradle nnd the grave equally to get their present force, liesides what they lose ill freipient skirmishes and battles they are now Mo »iug from desertion nnd other causes, at least one regiment perdiy. From this drain upon tlicm the end is not far distant, it we ; will be wily inie to ourselves. Their only hope now is in a divided North. This might {rive them reinforcements from Kentucky Miry laud and Missouri, while it would weak en us. With the diaft quietly enforced the 'eneinv would hecoaw desperate and will make but lit th' resistance. I have no doubt that the enemy is exceedingly anxious to holdout un'il the Presidential election. They • hope ; for ilie election of a peace candid ite; in fact, like Macawber they are waiting for something 'to turn up. If they expect a pence from seperation they are mistaken. It would be but the beginning of a war with thousands of ' Northern men because of our disagreement*, and make men willing for separation in order to have peace on any terms. The South would demand restoration of the slaves already freed. They would demand a treaty which would make th>-people of tho Noith slave hunters of the South. Tiny would demand indemnification for losses sustained. (Signed) U. S. GRANT. ! Zeic York. Srj,f. S.—Geo. 11. McChllan j accepts the Chicago nomination. lles iys the exis'anee of more than one gov- j eminent over the" region once owned by our llag is incompatible with the peace, power and i happiness of our people. The preservation of the Union was the avowed object for which ! the war commenced. I» should have been i conducted for that object only and in accor- J cance with those principles which I took oc casion to declare when in active service. J Thus conducted, tho \vo v k of reconciliation | wou'd have been ensv. We might have reaped the benefit of our many victories on land nnd sen. The Union was originally formed bv the exercise of a spirit of concilia tion and compromise; to restore and pre serve it, thi> same spirit must prevail in our course and on the part of the people. The establishment of the JJnion in all its intcgii tv is and must continue to be indispensable to any settlement so soon as it is clear or even probable that our present adversaries are ready for peace upon the basis of Union. We should exhaust all the resources of states manship practiced by civilized nations or taught by the traditions of American people, consistent with the honor nnd interest of the country, to secure such n peace, re-establish the Union and guarantee for the future the constitutional rights of every State. The Union is theon'y condition of peace; we ask no more. Let me ndd what I doubt not was, although unexpressed, the sentiments of the Convention, as it is of the peop'e they repre sent. that wliep any one State is willing to return to the Union, it should be received nt once with 11 full guarantee of all its constitu tion il rights. If a fra*ik, earnest and presia'- c t ofT rt to obtain the object should tail, the responsibility for ulterior cons'-quenses will f.ll up>>n th 'Be who remain in arms against the l'ni"n. Hot the Union must be pre*, rv, d at a'l liaxaids. A vast inajoiity of our people, whether iu the armv, navt or ! at h 'me. would, as 1 would do, hail with nn bonn b d joy a prrm m- nt r-s'oratioii of peace : on the ba-is of I nion umb-r thel "onstitnti* n. without the effusion of another diop of bloody Ktit no pence Can be permanent without th.

DISCONTKNT AMONU THE INDIANS. — A large delegation of the head men of the Indi an tribes of the Sound havo becu encamped in the vicinity of town for somo two weeks pust, waiting the return of the Stipe 1 intend ent, to have a talk with him in regard to the intentions of the Government towards them. Meddlesome and reckless white men have been creating the impression among them that the Government was broken up,and that their land was to be taken away from them in violation of treaty stipulations. We under stand that Mr. Waterman lias quieted their apprehensions and that they have left for home entirely satisfied. Every change of Su perintendents is construed into a change of policy by the Government, and hence their readiness to believe anything that is told them. They do not understand the policy of " rotation."
