Let us so act tlmt the voice of Washington Territory may oe clearly anil 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 in respect the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States, and regard with alarm the recent threads 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 in the States and Terri tories the right to define the elective frnnchisa 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 Washington 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 ? Itcmcmber that the acts organizing our Territory, and inviting its settlement years ago, conferred the express right to define the qualifications of electors, and opened the public lands to while settlement. After fourteen years acceptance of these fundamental laws, without offense on our part, Congress has deprived us of those privileges. Without our consent and against our will, it has forced upon us negro suffrage and has opened the door for all races and col ors to vote in our Territory, and settle in our midst. Those who favor repeal of such op pressive Congressional Legislation, come for ward now, and let your voice be heard in earn est protest against such interference in our affairs. K. S. FOWLKR, Chairman Committee. Thurston County Convention.

We publish the address as afford ing conclusive evidence that the Rad ical party in this Territory (where negro equality is not popular) either has no principles, or having daro not avow them. Its staple is slang, low- Hung blackguardism, and crazy, blind fanaticism, and so thoroughly arc these elements combined, that it would be difficult to determine whether ignorance, impudence or dirt preponderates in its composition. Its authors, not satisfied with exhib iting the total depravity of the party opposed to them, to cap the climax, make the devil look small, and to complete the evidence of their piety, introduce him as the prototype of anti Radicalism, or Leandoristii, whichever it is. "Lot us," says the Committee af ter having exhausted the vocabulary of treason and its supply of billings gate upon whoever might question the orthodox}' of the address, after exhibiting the most vindictive bit terness, after appealing directly to the vilest prejudices—"Let us ignore all prejudice, all sectional bitterness, all personal feeling for the common good of our glorious cause." If this resolution had been taken in the be ginning, there had been no address to write. Leandcr! Leauder! if the "loyal Congress" were Helen, and the people of Washington Territory the Hellespont, thou wouldst never obtain her without some better raft than this.

'1 'ribuuCy upon learn ing of tho appointment of Dr. O'- Brien as Physician to the Indians, pitched into Superintendent McKiu ney rough shod. For some reason, it has since seen the matter from an other stand-point, i. e. through an other pair of eyes. The following paragraph, from tho last issue of that paper, shows that tho appointment looks quite different from what it did at first: " If il be true us we have been assured, tlmt (lie appointment was niuJe independent ol' ull political considerations, and purely lor the purpose of pluci'ig the medical service in skill ful hands, very well. If it lie true Unit the Superintendent rose above his own political preference und appointed a man outside of the political circle in which he himself sympathi zes, because he could thereby better subserve the wants of the Indians, very well. If il is true that he removed l>r. U'llrien's predecessor for the reason of his incompetency, and be cause he resided off the Reservation, very well.''

I tad men nit li Iwdde- and purposes ; relieU ; traitors; deiniKTtic aiders and aliettois oftrea son and disuitioii; sympathizers and apologists of rebellion, all combined in the nefarious purpose of arresting the progress of human liberty and just laws. Judging the future by tlio past, they would dclugo the country again in blood, bestrew the enrtli and the sea with the mangled remains «»t' human victims, rejoice at the wid dow's wiril, laugh at the orphan's cry, spread havoc, carnage and ruin over the laud, if by these, they would ride into place and power; for their avowed principle of political action is to rule or ruin. For this they envel oped the country in the flames of civil war. For litis they sought to des troy the Constitution and the Govern ment of our fathers, but, thank God, were overthrown and disarmed. For i/tis, more lately, under tho aus pices of their new friend, the Presi dent, they appealed to the people, and by them were most signally routed. Yet like their great proto type, the arch fiend, who was thrown from the battlements of heaven for Ins treason, they are prowling around, professing loyalty and devotion to tho Constitution and Government that for years they sought to destoy. Becoming arrogant under tho lead ership of •' My policy" they call loy alty treason, union disunion, and those who prosecuted tho war and saved the government are traitors in their estimation. Citizens of Washington Territory,ss is ditlk-ult to see through the designs of such men ? Shall such men be placed in power hy your votes? Shall this Territory semi such a represen tative to the loyal Congress of the Nation? Wo think not. We think your response will ho in thunder tone?, No! If this is your reply, then, gentlemen, organize, arm yourselves for the tight;'let this Territory pre serve her plaee side by side with the loyal Stutes and Territories of the Union. Let us ignore all prejudieo, all seetional bitterness, all personal feeling for the common good ot our f'lorinus cause. Let us scud true oynl Union men as delegates to the Territorial Convention, only that they be instructed that the nominee be a capable, sound, reliable Union man, whose political views aro not subject to ebbs and flows of the tide, ami whoso identity utrl interest in the welfare of the Territory are un questioned. And we iimv Iw assured not only sue*-****, but triumph ant victorv will crown the result. G. A. MKIUB, f'kmirmarn (.ommittet.

This allusion of the Oreijomtin cotnes with an ex cellent grace from one who has ■ en joyed the hospitalities of the "old tub," and been couveyed by her free of expense, from one end of the Sound to the other. But this is just about the amount of courtesy or gratitndo to bo expected from " Torn Thumb," of the Orrgonia». yg- Every Radical plan of M Re construction" wo have yet seen as sumes there is a i.eeessity for resur rection as well as reconstruction.

The Restoration plan, howev er, is plaiu, simple and efficacious. It is symply to apply the healing balm, aud give the patient physical rest aud repose. One springs from barbarism and inhumanity, the other from the dictates of rmss and a compliance with Nature's lava.
