The Democratic Central Committee Jiave designated Wednesday, April 17th listiT, as the time, and the city of Vancouver in Clarke County, the place for the next Teriitorial Con vention, to assemble for the nomination of a candidate for Delegate to Congress, and the transaction of other business that may prop erly come before it. Kacli county or district is entitled to repre sentation as follows : Whatcom, 2 Island, 2y Clallam, 2 Jefferson, 4 Snohomish, 2 Kitsap, 4 King, 4 fierce, 4 Mason, I Chchalis, 1 Pacific, 2 Thurston, <• Cowlitz and Wahkiakum, 2 Lewis, 2 Clarke, tj Skamania, 2 Clickatat 1 Yakama, 1 Walla-walla, 10 Stevens, 2 The earnestness of the committee in urging curly organization by precinct, county anil dis trict meetings, has been deepened by the fol lowing facts : The portentous period through whiih our country is now passing, justifies lis in briefly addressing you. Let us so act that the voice of Washington Territory may oc clearly and unmistakably understood on the momentous issues now agitating the Union. All who love the Union, who desire its immediate restora tion on the broad basis of the Constitution ; all who favor the immediate admission to Congress of loyal Senators and Representa tives from the ten excluded States, upon equal terms with the twenty-six States now repre sented in Congress ; all who sustain the res toration policy of the National Administra tion ; all who hold iu respect the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States, and regard with alarm the recent threats of im peachment, of members of that solemn tribu nal, in order to subvert its independence ; all who believe that the Constitution of the Uni ted States and uniform usage since its adop tion have vested iu the States and Terri tories the right to define the elective franchise within their respective limit 3 ; in a word, all regardless of political antecedents, who are opposed to radicalism' cnlmiuating in revolu tion, who covet Union rather than disunion, peace rather than war, harmony rather than discord, stability of institutions rather than anarchy, let your voice be heard. Citizens of Washington Territory 1 Are you prepared to submit without protest to'that indignity, which, while you willingly contribute your taxes, though denied a vote in Congress, even takes away from you the privilege of con trolling your elective franchise ? Remember that the acts organizing our Territory, anil inviting its settlement years ago, conferred the express right to define the qualifications of electors, and opened the public lands to trhtle settlement. After fourteen years acceptance of these fundamental laws, without offense on our part. Congress his deprived u« <>f iHum privileges.

L.* manner is wauling in tliat dignity which gives Mich a high tone t<> any thing that is fiii'l or done l>y the latter. We doubt not hut that " The llouse that Jack lluilt," t>r "Cock Robin," delivered by Mr. T>cnnison in his happy manner, would seem to the unlearned like a passage from "Paradise Lost" or a scene from "Richard III." Both of the speeches, though of di tie rent styles, are of that class of which no ade quate idea can be formed by reading a verbatim report. They may be compared to well-played tunes upon wind instruments: however we may be delighted with the hearing, we find they are intended for that sense alone, and if we attempt an analysis, it is to ascertain that they arc mere wind after all. • President Deunison's solemn twad dle about " the dry and withered bones of the system of government which existed under the old 4 Articles of Confederation,' " is founded upon premises so false that there is no al ternative but to class him either among those who are ignorant them selves, or who wish to impose on the ignorance of others. Any fool who has read the history of this govern ment, knows that the Articles of Confederation were found insuffi cient because they did not confer powers enough upon the General Government to preserve tho Union, and that the Constitution was in tended to supply the deficiency by conferring tho powers necessary for that purpose, and no more. It seems to us that Art. X. of the Amend ments to tho Constitution, which says that" tho powers not delegated to the United States by the Consti tution, nor prohibited by it to the {States, are reserved to the States re spectively, or to the people," 6hows clearly enough the intention to make the Federal Government one of lim ited power*. f.»r specific purpose*.

In these times we are prepared to expect almost anything, uud the ar ticles of our eoteinporary alluded to, show that tho Radical party is pre pared to swallow whatever may be labelled " Congress." The proceed ings in Congress show that after a full discussion, Stevens' bill, which was practically an amendment to tho Constitution, was defeated by a vote of IS to 132—11 uot voting. As these aro tho facts, it is fair to assume that our neighbor believes the Con stitution ought to bo amended as in dicated, or iu some other way, in which he will receive credit or con demnation, as tho case may ho, for having out-radicaled the Radicals, as his most solemn efforts always out ridiculo the ridiculous. . JB6T" The Radical organ in this place censures in unmeasured terms the Legislative Assembly for "vot ing away and taking the public arms." Bo easy, man, you're talk ing out in meeting! Tho first man in cither branch who proposed this lit tle scheme for rifling tho armory was Mr. Harmon, of Island, who intro duced a resolution for that object sev. eral days in advance of tho joint res. obition, and the measure could not have prevailed without tho concur rence of tho very Radical Council. " Tho few who hud tho manliness" to refuse a musket, wore not Radi cals. Tho only exception to tho rule was Mr. Ileury, of this county, who returned to tho armory tho musket assigned him. Tho most prominent mover in tho matter wo know of, is the Tribune's second choice for Delegate to Congress. fcjr In our issue of tho 26th ult. we alluded, more in sorrow than in anger, to the recent action of COII GREAS in forcing neuro suffrage UJN>H thf |«-i»p!e of the several Territorica.

South worth in December last, entitled "Tho Bride of Llewellyn," which will, beyond all doubt, prove to be tho most popular and successful work •that has ever been written by her, for she is beyond all question the most powerful female writer in America, if not in tho world. No one ever read a chapter of one of her works without wishing to read the whole book, and none ever read one of her books without admiring tho rare genus of its author and wishing that she might soon write aoothcr. Her scenes are life-pictures, her inci dents are fouuded on facts, and her sentiments are characterized by a sin* gular purity both of conception and expression. Sho has tho rare faculty of saying what she means, and of saying it iu such a manner that her moaning cannot bo misinterpre ted. In short she poscsses in an eminent degree those qualifications which aro the peculiar prerogatives of a good writer, and while she do lights the reader's imagination with her descriptivo beauty, sho applies home truths to his understanding with the force of rational conviction. Tho"Brido of Llewellyn" will bo welcome by all such readers especial ly ; and thoso who have never read the works of this gifted woman should not fail to buy and read new novel bv thi* "ifted American m C authoress.

Representatives of the Pacific toast are certainly at work, aid tin re is not much il tubt that tho Senate would confirm tho appointment. It is staclthat the chief difficulty is to the l'res ident to appoint Nesmith. Williams, of Pensylvania, moved to striko out the appropriation for the legation at Rome. C _ _ Stevens of Pcnsylvanin, moved to insert the following: Whereas, it is beneath the dignity and contrary to the justice ot tho nation to be repre sented at any court whose Govern ment prohibits the free worship of American citizen* within itsjurisdic tion, they professing Protestant re ligion ; and whereas, the Roman Government recently ordered Amer ican churches to be removed beyond the limits of the city, and doet pro hibit the free exercise by them of the christian religion, therefore, be it enacted, that no moneys hereby appropriated shall bo paid for tho support of a legation at Rome, or for the future expenses of any such le gation. llalo of New York, moved to strike out the preambl. The amend ment was adopted, Tho New York Times believes Frederick Seward's mission is to re sume the rogotiatioi. for securing the bay of Satnana in tho West in dies for a nival station. In the Scute Brown introduced n bill authori/i ig tho construction of a Government telegraph from Wash ington to Now York. Rcforrod. In the Senate, in tlife evening, Wade called up the bill to prohibit Territorial offie ers from obtaining leave of absence for over thirty days at one time. Passed. Ju tho llouso, Raymond presented a memorial, signed by a large num ber of business men in New York, against the impeachment of tho Pres ident, and nrgiug measures to strengthen public coufidence, which was referred.

"The claim of Johnson for two mil lion damages for the seizure by the War Department of land oti t ie Col umbia river, is now being argued in the Court of Claims.

Twenty of t!i«»so cases are in process of adju dicati m in the Supreme Court. Trombridge, of Michigan, from the committee on Enrolled llills, re ported a preamble and resolution to the effect that, whereas the bill to re peal the Amnesty proclamation of the President, and the hill to regu- late the franchise in tlie territories, had become laws by the failure of the President to sign them and to re turn them with objections. They asked that the Secretary of S ate be requested to inform the House that »nid laws had been tiled in tho de partment. After discussion the res* ol lit ion was adopted.
