The earnestness of the committer in urging early organization by precinct, county and dis trict meetings, has been deepened liv the fol lowing facts : The portentous period through whit h our country is now passing, justilics us in briefly addressing you. Let us so act that tlic voice of Washington Territory may ne 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 eipial terms with the twenty-six States now rcpro fented in t'ongress ; all who sustain the res toration puliey of the National Administra tion ; all who hold in respect the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United Stales, and regard with alarm the recent threats of im peachment, of members of that solemn tribu nal, in order to subvert its independence ; nil who believe that the Constitution of the Uni ted States and uniform usage since its adop tion have vested in the States and Terri tories the right to define the elective franchise within their respective limits ; in a word, nil regardless of political antecedents, who are opposed to radicalism culminating 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 Wasliiugton Territory ! 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, and inviting its settlement years ago, conferred the express right to detiue the qualifications of electors, and opened the public lands to while settlement. After fourteen years acceptance of these fundamental laws, without offense on cur part, Congress has deprived us of those privileges. Without our consent and against our will, it has forced upon us negro ifliflrngc and has opened the door for all races anil col ors to vote in our Territory, and settle in our midst. Thoso who favor repeal of such op pressive Congressional Legislation, come for ward now, nnd let your voice he heard in earn est protest against such interference in our affairs. K. S. FOWLER, Cl.airinan Committee. Tburaton County Convention. The friends ot tlic National Admini,(ration, those who support the policy thereof in restor ing peace to the nation, and all who endorse the Declaration of i'riuciples adopted l>;' the Philadelphia National Union Convention, are respectfully requested to meet in their respect ire precincts on SATURDAY, MARCH 16th, 1567, to elect delegates to a County Conven tion to be held on Saturday, March 30U>, A.

The ino-t effective aid can 1 litis he given to sedition, as the gentleman himself admit*, where lie talks about tlie po>ilion of t!ie New Kngland fanatics at the beginning of the war, when they declared for " peaceable secession," that " the Union pinned together with bayonets was not worth having,and kindred assertions, which speedily brought the rebellion to a head. Wc have not space to review the speech in detail, nor is it necessary. The Conservative position is well known upon these 44 points at issue." Much that is said we endorse, as wc would the creed of a church while rejecting the interpretation of some hard-shell expounder. "We have known men of undoubted piety to preach brimstone and eternal dam nation, in the firm belief they were serving their Muster's cause. With such men we must class friend Kuapp, although tho association may not be very flattering to hint. ©fif The ship Nicholas Diddle was recently wrecked in the Straits, out ward bound, with ncargo of lumber for the San Francisco market.

It was !ij>"ii his motion the Conven tion immediately adjourned, and very many remember his zealous el lorts to have that Convention not ro- assemhle. Two years before when It. F. Dennison, Ksq., the man who lately made the loir est bill for the Radical Congressional nomina tion by classing the President with Benedict Arnold and asserting he was controlled by n lewd woman, was running upon the Democratic ticket for Councilman, his opposi tion to the war was so intense that I)r. O'Urion objected to his nomina tion, and for such reason alone. 3 He may have through partisan consis tency, then supported Dennison. If he did, he probably deserves tho cen sure of the Tribune as a Copperltead. Hut where tho Doctor lias influence which but few so wield, and so de servedly too, Mr. Angel beat Denni son in that canvass, which defeat may go far to explain the miraculous conversion. Whilo our neighbor was fleeing from the draft to come, Dr. O'Brien, whom ho now abuses for a lack of patriotism, was editing a newspaper, in this Territory, in which may be found as warm sentiments of love for his adopted country, zeal in behalf of tho Union, as ever were penned by tho clerical editor of the ludian Department, or "any other man" connected with the " machine." We heartily believe that the whole com munity upon the Sound, save the little "office-controlling junta" which runs tho Radical organ, will hail the appointment of Dr. P. M. O'Brien with hearty satisfaction.

The iiublic are not aware, an«l will j IK.* probably to learn lor the first time, that the salaries as siged for medical attendance on the: Indians are for the most part drawn under the connivance ot the agents; of the different reservations, by po-j liticul appointees outside of tho med ical profession, and ostensibly as a reward for political services. To correct so flagrant an imposture the Superintendent has set himself to work, commencing at this end ot the Territory, and this reform wounds, forsooth, the sensibility of the editor ot the Tribune , and his friends, be cause a noble profession is not sub ordinated to a political end! Tho Superintendent knows I presume by sad experience on the battlefield, that the amputating knife, the tre phine or the scalpel does not derive any espeeinl charm by being placed iu tho hands cf men extemporized under the name of doctors by a po litical pow-wow or H tamamwaa" manipulation; nor arc those instru ments used the more dexterously ev en by educated surgeons because they may happen to bo expert and skilful I in the science of polical strat egy. The Union men of this Terri- Tory, however " surprised" they may be at niv appointment, will, I believe, admit tlmt a physician, preseri|ition it not tho lew scientific, aithough not written with tho same inky hue as that in which the Tribune editor's lucubrations are copied; nor is a dose of medicine the less potent ev en if it should not bo administered through a menstruum determined by "political pharmacy. I would inform tho editor and his friends that I ac- cepted tho appointment offered me because I knew that tho spirit in which it was offered was not sullied by political considerations. Were it otherwise I should have most re spectfully declined its acceptance. 1 would still further add, without meaning tho slightest disrespect, that I do not value the appointment pecuniarily. I have within the past threo days dispensed medicine, lini ments, salves, lint mid bandages to the value of more than one fourth of the annual compensation assigned tlie otHce. I did feel anxious to re lieve those poor, wretched victims of imposition, professionally, and when I went amongst them to examine in to their wants, I declare it sol emnly, I was astounded at their des titution.

This was followed by a heavy shock of thunder which seemingly made tho earth rock as if sbakeu by an earthquake. Similar pheoemeua occurred on Saturday sicht, last week. !
