Wo hope it will receive that consideration its im portance demand*. A growing ne cessity requires this improvement in our facilities for stoain communi cation. It has always appeared to us ay oversight of the Postal Depart ment that the overland tri-weekly mail service should terminate at this point, and nothing better than a weekly mail be afforded to the many thriving business points on the Sound, which but await the aid of capital snd industry to develop their many resources. The establishment of a semi-weekly mail, is a step to warcs the achievement of this object. The memorial should receive an ananimous support in the Assembly, and aided by the cordial co-operation of the people on the Sound cannot fail of success. A semi-weekly mail need not cost much more than our present weekly. A first-class boat can easily make two trips a week. The extra cost of run ning would he comparatively a triile, •which we believe would he amply compensation by the increased trade. Another important measure inau gurated in the House, by Mr. Long mire, is a memorial asking for a post routo from some convenient point on the Sound, through some one of the many practicable passes in the Cas cade mountains to Walla "Walla, or other eligible point in the Eastern part of the Territory. This also should be backed by the voice of the people. Let no sectional jeal ousies debar the success which is in evitable with united and harmonious action. These, and other important meas ures of like character, have engaged legislative action the greater part, of the week. The session this far has been remarkably harmonious. We trust it may remain so throughout, and result in much practical good. • • • THE MAILS laon PORTLAND.— From some unexplained canae the Portland mail* do not reach here in lr«- th*n f»ur daji- AH that i* known aU»ut tL<* iw '.-r »«. -impi*. that l: •• - i . • "• 1 • ■:!- iMrtat M «*. * t-« . o: ~ pars.' . tW uu < arc <w i » u. «? •» 'mmx *• ♦-» »sU We f- ;«» |*f- TW * Vi ; tl. . . or »f SC » • t, --• -4; ;«■ JBT • %*» «* «»>MI • * 1 , Mr 11 •-.» - •- to wr~i T t. • V» tl» * - T.»•* •* ifc"- i'-mL '4b »' f-- -•»: V * 4 0 m m **■. -- ■■■ Bmm Tmm.— TW kx-'mm *« SSfc< »*»■». _ saKi • ' »M|. 4ft tinw- frirn* 4ft »4. > ■»* TW • 4 tm 'iiium ttftr H |M4>MMK • T to* ml &> Ift-* i _ iii"w " i-JRJP «a» • . mm eewi. *te» IMW «mw> •«* . «&a* r Imp* mattmmd *§m nqpnw I .> «%»«. - -tfT*" | H ' « ; >|JU t -I. i % • #> i * «, .ft |; ■ .

Wili-ird will regret to hear ot his death oil Wednesday morning l ist, after a .-hoit lint severe illness. The Doctor was one <>£ our oldest Mul must esteemed citizen, and his departure leaves n void in our community that cannot be tilled. The deceased was liuried on Tliursd iy, under the auspices of the M i sonic fiateiiity, of wli ell In* was nn hon ored member. The resolutions of tliel.odgt upon this «ad bereavement will uppcar in our next issue. A SKHMOX.—The clerical writer in the last J\ Tril»nn devotes nearly two columns of wliamrdoodle to the 9 « President, and regrets that spacs will not permit liim to extend it to still greater length. The sorrow is all own. "What'.'! I lie use of eussiu', 'twon't tlo :inv ? What's the use of fussing, in this fivn/.ieil niooil ? Are vim a man of fuuctiou, who never can say ilie ? I!i}r i'i}t, little pi);, root hog or die." BIM.IAUDS.—Wo observe that Mr. JJermister has obtained one of the finest billiard tables this side of San Francisco for the use of hi* custom ers. It is one ofStrahle's four-pock et table with all the late improve ments. Its finish is truly superior, being made of rosewood carved and highly polished. Admirers of the game would do well to give Charley a call. A QI'KfITIONARLE EXPEDIENT TO " DRAW." —We observe that the Hell Ringers announce for their perform ance during the holidays, a new piece, entitled, " Governor Picker ing's March. Whether it is to be his march through Suoi|iialmic, or his march out of ollice. the bills don't say. It will doubtless be a •' variation" of the Uogue's March.

Mr. Eldi idgo thought the word "waiter," in the second section was liable to misconstruction; that it might he applied to lady waiters in hotels, and they compelled to take out a license. Mr. Knapp moved to strike out the t)bjoetionablc word. Mr. McCJilvra thought no possible misconception could arise, and thought the language plainly indi cated the meaning of the legislators. Mr. Simmon* said, if the word "waiter" was stricken out, l»v the amendment, the hill might just as well not become a law. lie there lore opposed the amendment, as also the proposition to reduce the cost of license from three to one hundred dollars per quarter. Mr. Kldridge said the bill didn't affect his county, but ho wanted to see laws framed in proper language. The law tdiould unmistakably indi cate the intention of the Legislature, lie maintained that the word " wait er" applied as much to waiters in a hotel as in a saloon. Mr. McGilvra thought the gentle man was inclined to be technical; thought he must have eaten pickles for breakfast, which don't set well on his stomach.

The untitled niche in most of our hearts —the va cant places in which we were so long aceust nneil to see him and which may never be so well filled again, speak more than words can express. To him the lines of llallcek are pereuliarly applicable, and in repeat ing them, 1 but express a feeling, wish and sentiment, that will be res ponded to by all who knew him. u (iiven he the turf nhove thee, Friend of my better days; NOII • knew tliee but t•» love thee, None nanietl thee l.nt ti praise* Mr. Miles also paid a glowing trib ute to the many sterling qualities of character of the deceased. Referred to the pioneer life in the then almost desolate tract of country which em braces our Territory. lie had known 'ho deceased long and well, and under all circumstances found hi in to be the same genial-hearted gentleman. [We regret that our notes of those remarks are mislaid] — REP. Mr. McGilvru said : Mr. Speaker. It was my good fortune to make the acquaintance of the deceased some five years ago, when 1 lirst landed upon the wild and rugged shores of Puget Sound. Judge Ford was then one of the old est residents of this Territory, and honored and respected by every one who knew him, as he ever contin ued to be up to the time he took his departure from this troublesome scene. Aside from his intellectual abilities, which raised him lar above mediocrity, he was ernenently en titled to tlio noble apjrellation of an honest man. None are without faults, but if he had any the noble ness, gencrostiy and integrity of his nature overshadowed them s.> com pletely, that it diseernable, they were not remembered. The loss of such a man. cannot l»e other wise than a son' bereavement, not only to his immediate personal friends and neiiihb -rs. hut to the community »t lar-je.
