From !hc p. !i»r relations ?*i-tiiig br tvtecn th< r.otiiincc and ourself, the task divolving upon us in the present content i* no pleasant one, however mucli we may believe Mr. liarnes to lie in rrror na re gards his political creed, or the secret mo tives of those who have placi d bitn in the field and doomed hiin to the mortification of inevitable defeat. We have known Mr. Batnes long and well. Cheerfully we accord to him the characteristics of nr. iionest, upright gentleman, bnt while so doing we cannot shut our eyes to the ninny peculiarities of temperament and disposi tion which so completely disqualify him to fill the position with either credit to him self or the best interests of the people it is proposed be should represent in the next Legislative Assembly. Possessing an ar xistccrattc bearing, united with a brusk address, he is not one who can carry much influence in n body composed of represent atives selected from the midst of the people. In this, at least, he is just the opposite of Mr. Mitchell, who unites with honesty and integrity of chnracter that other paramount essectial, the qualifica tion of being prc-eiuinently one of the people. As regards Mr. Barnes' political views, we give him credit for hout-sty in their maintenance, and therefore lo be the more dreaded by those who hare the ronl wel fare of the country at heart. lie is one of the most radical of the radical, and any scheme calculated to perpetuate the pres ent chaos created by Congress, will receive fail hearty suppoit, however visionary it may appear to all whose optics are not dimmed by the haze of funaticsm. He is mot a man of logic but one of conviction, controlled by the " higher law " dictates of a conscience warped by all vageries of the wild enthusiasm which is sweeping like a simoon over our distracted country. The impeachment of the President, if thereby full power could be bestowed upon the radicals, would meet with his hearty approval. Loyal voters, is this the man you wish to speak for you in (he halls of legislation ? Do you wish a man whose repellant nature will neutralize what influ ence he might otherwise wield for your good? Or will you cast your votes for a man of the although the radical organ may sneeringly dub him a butcher, and visit upon him all the terrors of official indignation for presuming to arpire to rtp rrtent thm kid glove gentry in tke < ounc.l of Wa*kiag»on Territory.

And that the pur pose with which the Government set out was defeated h_v causes al ove and beyond its control. \Vhen the (lovcrnment took tip arms it did not it.tend to arm the n>'- gio s; it did not intend to emancipate the slaves; it did not intend to confiscate southern property, hut God compelled it to do all these things as a choice between so doing or suffering defeat and the Na tional overthrow." The admissions as to the intention wj h which the war was accepted, are as we have always understood the purpose of the Government to have been, as may be seen by reference to our files. The arming of negroes—the emancipation of slaves and the confiscation of suuthern property, were not, it is true, purposes for which the war was prosecuted, and it is not denied that there was but one purpose, and that the restoration of the UNION as it was, but these were nientio, nnil very important ones, to the accomplishment of the great end in view. From these incidents of the war, our friend draws tho false premises upon which his argument in favor of the recon struction policy of Congress is based, —if that can be called an argument in which a man proposeth to tear down a joint-fence, burn his neighbors barn, or shoot his pistol because that other hath done the like un lawful acts. The article continues : " Having been thus compelled to break in upou the old compromises of the Constitution nnd to nn.settlc the old bal ances of power, and to disturb the old harmonics of the Ciovernment among the States, not in fulfillment of its own origin al purposo, bnt in fulfillment of the higher purposes of the Almighty, it is claimed that a reconstruction of the balauces of power and a readjustment in the Union of the relations of those States that have made war on the Government, have tram pled under foot the old Constitution with all its sacred covenants aud guarantees, and bid defiance to law, is necessary. It is claimed also that the Congress of the United States is the only rightful power to determine the conditions of this recon struction. This is our side of the qestiou, and the principles of our platform are to plain, so nnanswerablc in the light of fhe histo r y of the last six years, that the " wayfarir.g man though a fool," if he will be honest, must approve them.

" (.'i r ami Mini.ii."—While the lal loting was gi it>g on in th« great iii-uss inciting on Saturday, we oveiheard an in gentleman of the radical per suasion from tl.e rural districts complain ing most bitterly of unfairness in the con vention, said lie, "I have never yet come to town to attend a convention without having n ticket thrust into my face with •ho intimation, 'that's tl.e right ticket!' Now I should like to know what necessity there is for any of -the country people to respond to u party ca'l unless they have some part in fixing the ticket ? I had no sooner come into this room to-day than a ticket was shoved into my hand nicely arranged with S, D. Howe, Edwin Marsh, Ira Ward, and others, for me to vote. Now I'm opposed to this way of doing. The officials in Olympia always claim the lion's share." We don't blame the gen tleman referred to for feeling incensed at tho evil of which he complains. The wins were all laid for the nomination of Mr. Hair.es, as we announced before the convention assembled, and the mass con vention was but tho usual farco of the radical parly to ratify what had been done in secret conclave. llow long will honest men be duped by the infamous demagogues who have controlled every radical conven tion that has been held in the Territory. rr'f lie disunion sheet near the brew ery appears to bo dreadfully annoyed be cause lion. P. I>. Moore, Collector of In ternal Revenue, will voto with and cast his influence with the friends of tho Ad ministration. No wouder. The brains of the party which the Tribune has pro fessed to advocate is about absorbed iu the real Union organization. This convic tion is forced upen our cotemporary not withstanding his unwillingness to acknow edge the fact. Rut how is it with the Assessor of Internal Revenue ? A few months ago he boldly declared himself against the radical party, and held to this view we believe until Mr. Denny's pil grimage. A short time ago be declared the issue to bo negro equality, and that his vote and influence was against the mice g-nation doctrine.

That "Conversion." The last number of iha P. Tribune, in accordance with its refutation for slander and falsehood nnd to gratify f0:11c one or more of it* masters, publishes n scurrilous attack upon Collector Moore, replete with falsehood and vile abuse. That Mr. Mooro is heartily in favor of Iho Union of all the States, nnd opposed to the disunion dogma of excluding nearly one-third of the States from representation by loynl men, in the halls of Congress, and that he co-oprrntcs with all true Union men for the discom fiture and overthrow of radical revolution ist* who, for partisan purposes, would sac rifice tho most vital and fundamental prin ciples of our Government nnd nvow em phatically disunion sentiments, wo do not deny, as this is his open nnd avowed posi tion; but we do deny that his present po sition is inconsistent with his patriotic de votion to the Union for years past, or his support of the policy and administration of President Lincoln. The issue between the National Union Party und Congress is the right of representation by loyal men of all the States of the Union, and thus re store the whole country to peace, prosperi ty and unity,—the several States having equal rights in the hails of legislation, they being equally subject tolaws there enacted.

We have found lour true bills and ignored othora fur want of sufficient cause of action. Wi; Imve visited the jnil or block>house, and find it to Im conducted iu a proper and satisfactory manner so far as the offi. Ci-r in fljiarge is concerned, but would re. report the building as being entirely unfit f >r the pin-pos's t<>r which it is used, it be iug not only damp, open, uncomfortable and unsightly, and not of sufllcient strength to ke> p even an Indian from escaping with impunity. Wc would therefoie earnestly recommend the immediate erection of a good and substantial building for prison purp >s< s. Wo also visited the County Auditor's office, n»w kept in one of the upper noma of said jail 01 block house, a place, in the opit.i 11 of this Gtnnd Jury, entirely unfit lor and tins ife as a depngitery for the pub lic records of the county, i.nd we would recommend the furnishing of a bettei office and the purchase of a suitable lion safe for use in said office. Upon examination of the books of this office, we find tbem exceedingly deficient in proper indexes; nnd would here state that it ia considered one of the important duties of * re. coiding officer to keep n correct index far each kind of record kept in bis office, which we find has never been done 1a this office. We would therefore call the attention of the Couuty Commissioners to this fact. We have also paaaed a rote of censure against the Sheriff, Auditor and County Commissioners of the counties of ChebalU nnd Mason for dereliction of duty in not forwarding to the clerk of the District Court the return of Grand and Petit Jurors for this term of court, as required by Uw. We also passed a vote of censure against the Coroner of Thurston county far not attending to his duty after having receir ed notice of the viohnt death of • person on Mound Prairie, on or about the let of September last All of which ia most mpeetfoßy mitted. • A.
