Walla Walla Washington Statesman (Newspaper) - April 11, 1863, Walla Walla, WashingtonThe Washington statesman saturday ?3?i? i i Lfeo �. The news. N 7 77 the rebels have made another raid into Kentucky but their numbers Are . So far they have not achieved any results favourable to their cause and. The Railroad communications with the Union i army in Tennessee have in no Case been laundered. It is reported that the invading Force is commanded by gen. Longstreet who is opposed by gen. Burnside. The operations of the unionists on the Mississippi Are not clearly reported but it is certain that Admiral Farragut has passed the rebel batteries at port Hudson and was above Natchez on the 16th of March. The Union gun boats had descended Yazoo pass to the rear of Vicksburg and i barked a powerful land Force to attack Haynes Bluffs which is thought to be the i key of the rebel position. Gen. Rosekrans was in momentary expectation at last dates of being attacked by general Joseph e. Johnsons command. It appears that the confederates have been heavily reinforced in ten Nessee and Are prepared to take the Offen Sive nothing but the badness of the roads preventing Active operations. Gen. Bose Krans is sanguine of his ability to hold his ground. Allis quiet on the Potomac with the usual report that the army is to March to Richmond. It is thought that the rebels Are considering the propriety of evacuating their capital and transferring the seat of War to the West. No doubt they will it for All that the army before Washington will to prevent it unless there is a change in the management of matters in that Quarter. The rebels have so Long had their own Way in that Quarter that they think they have a right to As they please. Several bloody cavalry skirmishes have occurred on the right Ank of gen. Hooker s forces in which the confederates got the worst of it. The world renowned j. E. B. Stuart commanded the rebels and received a severe thrashing from gen. Aver Ell. It would be Well to keep up this practice of whipping Jeff a who is the Best cavalry of cer of the rebel army. Charleston had not been attacked up to the 23d of March but Beauregard had is sued his Flieth proclamation announcing the approach of Lincoln s hessians a and for the Flieth time has declared his unalterable determination to expire in the last ditch before surrendering the Mecca of be cession Dom. There is no doubt that Beau regard has lavished his Beste Orts As an Engineer on Charleston and he intends to put Forth every Effort to repulse the unionists. The aggregate of destroying Force considering the numbers is without parallel in the history of the world and the weight of Union artillery will throw entirely in. The Shade the Allied batteries at Sebastopol and those which reduced Kinburn. For All this we not think the last ditch is anywhere near Charleston. The polish insurrection still continues to gain ground and will probably Lead to serious i i cuties. Unless the poles have assistance from abroad they must certainly be crushed and that speedily. That Hail route. The mail route no. 15,282 runs from this City to Vancouver once a week. The contract runs from january is 1863 to january is 1866. The compensation is not mentioned in the Public notice of the Post master general. From Vancouver to the Dalles there is already a Tri weekly mail and from Dalles to this Point a Semi monthly mail. This Vancouver and Walla Valla mail passes Over the same route in a closed bag and takes no Way matter. It renders no service which the other line can not except that it is supposed to come once a week from Dulles instead of twice a month but in fact it does not come in the schedule time and is generally entrusted to some passenger aboard of the River steam ers or sent through As it May Chance to be convenient. How such an abuse of the postal system has been so Long tolerated can Only be explained by the fact that Charles Watrous was our postal agent. The Money which escapes by this leak in the postal department would if it were added to the Semi monthly route from Here to the Dalles give us a Tri weekly mail connecting with the Dalles and Portland Tri weekly mail. Representations to this effect have been made to the department. Only company of w Ashington territory volunteers which was raised entirely in Washington Terri tory is stationed at Steilacoom. Desertions from this company have been so no \ serous that it is reduced to about thirty be men with a fair Prospect that they Willi desert on the St Opportunity. With a High degree of prudence most of them waited until the paymaster had been around so that they All had Money to pay their expenses. If any of Horace Greeley is Aming giants Are living in this country a Good Chance is now offered for them to leap into the places made empty by these Recreant and show their Faith by their Norks. But we fear that no portion of the nine Hun dred thousand Are to be found in these parts or if found will decline to Exchange the Chance of getting pure stuff from the mines for Uncle abets greenbacks. Borer. . J. C. Isaacs of this City received a be lot of Boise dust this week amounting to one Hundred and twelve ounces. This we believe is the St arrival of Boise dust of any amount this Spring. The reports from that Quarter continue very favourable. The Popula Tion of the District is said to be seven or eight thousand and the Rush is not Over vet. I the coming election. The time has arrived when the manage ment of our local affairs should Only been trusted to men having a permanent inter est in the country. There is no other Means by which the dances of the county can be corrected and its credit raised to the Standard which it ought to occupy. It is quite impossible to this if the county Treasury is to be annually depleted by faulting oilers As heretofore and unless the strictest inquiry is made into the competency and integrity of candidates for the county oilers we Are Likely to have a repetition of past performances. We conjure citizens to give this matter their most ear nest attention from this time until the elec. Tion. Let those gentlemen who Are Candi dates for positions in the county govern ment let the fact be known from this time until the election. And if any name is sprung upon the people at the eleventh hour let the owner of it be Defeated on the Broad general principle that there must be something wrong when any such trick is played. There is no impropriety in any citizen presenting his name for consideration in connection with any Public of ice and it is right and proper i that an Honor. Able and competent citizen should be an of be seeker if he so chooses. We shall observe with pleasure that Many of our Best citizens Are of be seekers after the manner which we describe at the next election and by this new Mode of of be seeking it is to be hoped that professional of be seeking will be done away with. If we can get a Board of county com missioners of High intelligence joined to Good character with Able and honest executive oilers the county of Walla Walla May extricate itself from All its Dif cuties in another year pay off the Little legacy arising from past mismanagement and Cre ate the appliances necessary to repress crime in our midst besides carrying on Many needed Public improvements. But such a state of things can never Hap pen it must be brought about by labor and vigilance. It will pay All who Are permanently interested in the country to take a part in the operations necessary to Cor rect the abuses and mismanagement of pub Lic affairs. 8ite1.13%. Grcen Arnold everybody knows Green has discovered that there Are three direct routes to the Boise mines. He quotes the Mountaineer and Golden age Asau Hority for the directness of the two St mentioned. The route so beautifully described by the Mountaineer is like the direct Trail to Salmon River advocated so earnestly by or. Newell a year ago somewhat mythical and passes Over High mountains which on account of Snow Are quite impassable at this season of the year. This route is via Canyon Creek and is Only eighty to one Hundred Miles of the nearest mad from the Dallas to Boise but it is suf a gently direct if adopted to the exclusion of All other routes to insure to the Dallas All the packing and mining Trade of the Boise mining Region. The second route which is vehemently puffed up by the age is by Way of Lewis ton but it has not been reported upon by travellers this season no one having yet passed Over it. Or. Petrie is now out with a pack train. Making a third attempt to get through the mountains that Way. This route is Only about eighty be to one Hun dred and thirty Miles off the near line by Walla Walla and grand Ronde valleys but when packers have passed Over it it. Is thought they willbe Able to report it As near to Lewiston As to Boise. The third route is somewhat circuitous but still direct and is advocated for the Benet of Portland. Pacic City san Francisco the sailing vessels going around Cape Horn. New Yor City and the towns and cities along the railroads and Rivers across the continent to fort Benton. go by this route is Only nine or ten thousand Miles off the direct line from the Colum Bia River at Val Lula. secure the adoption of this route it is proposed to engage the services of a lot of stranger crazy dons and Don Alonzos provide them with Ages and to Moses and station them at the different Points along the line to descant upon and enlighten the Public in regard to the merits and advantages of their re l spec Tive places. These routes Are respectfully submitted to the Public and it is asked in Charity for the editors aforesaid and for the Vve feet californians Chile nos americans and blackfeet and Bannock indians that the Public before adopting any one of these routes will Call upon the residents along All the lines and examine their grub and As certain their prices. Green is located in the grand. Ronde Valley but dont want any of the travel to go that Way for the route through there is entirely to near and cheap to he travelled now besides the Valley is located near to the mines and miners after arriving in the digging willbe compelled to obtain a great Deal of their forage from there which is considered a suf client advantage for the present. The reason for suggesting air anger done and Alonzo in that the originals Are so Well known that they would not be believed even i they stumbled on the truth and Are totally incompetent to deceive the Public. New Copperhead party of the South and West Are called butter nuts. Why should not the unconditional unionists Call themselves Hickory nuts in Honor of the great unionist Hickory Jackson 2 it is quite certain that Hickory nuts Are much harder to crack than Butternuts hence the name would be the right thing. Pearne and Sterne. 1n gen. Pearne s Deodate of the 21st of March he says the sensitiveness Felt by a certain class of demagogues at the participation of ministers and religions people in political affairs and the clamor raised against such As participate Are too Well known to be denied. Now you know gen. Pearne that nobody objects to religious people taking a part in Public affairs but we object to a Man gaining in a ence in the name of religion and than turning it to his private Benet. It is Disho Noring the cause which minister advocates to such a thing. But to fortify his position the reverend brigadier general quotes a dirty Story about Lawrence Sterne. This is peculiarly apropos on the part of gen. Pearne for Sterne was a Man of most Timoleon like moral character. Whose writings put to the Blush the Scarlet backed forbidden literature of the stews. Gen. Pearne has doubt less studied the moral productions of Sterne hence his admiration for him a fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind. No doubt the Rev. Brigadier general Pearne has studied the closing passage in that exciting itinerary the senti mental journey and from thence Drew the in Ference that Sterne was to to be his guide. In the course of time the general might get Stemets great work Tristram Shandy introduced As a Standard religious work for if Sterne is Good authority about the propriety of priests inter meddling in politics he must be on subjects of minor importance. Capt. Mullans report. Captain Jahn Mullan in his report to the Secretary of War speaking of the wants of the country East of the cascades says the results of our explorations of the country Between the Columbia and Missouri Rivers has developed the following wants to which the at Tention of Congress should be specially invited and which if met in the Liberal spirit with which they so Well Merit to be handled will redound to the Best interest of the government by testing to the fullest extent the Golden resources of the Rock y Mountain Region and which standing As the mountains Midway Between the Mississippi and the Pacic Ocean will develop a Bond of Union and strength Between the two extreme slopes of our continent. The following embrace a portion of the pressing wants of the country. A military depot should be established at the head of the great Falls of the Missouri River at the Mouth of Sun River with a three company cavalry Post this depot to Supply a our company cavalry Post to be established in the Beaver head Valley with Atwo company cavalry Post in the Deer Lodge Valley and a one company cavalry Post at the hell Gate. In this Region Are from 10,000 to 12,000 indians and these posts Are needed to guard the Ditl Erent Emigrant roads that will Here meet and Over which emigration is destined to pass As Well As to protect the hundreds of miners and Small Farmers there found at pre sent and that Are destined to Ock thither As soon As the wealth of the Rocky Mountain mines Are fully developed. The supplies for All these posts should be shipped from St. Louis to fort Benton. These posts can be economically maintained and Are a military necessity for the country. The military Post at fort Walla Walla should be reduced to a. Military depot and its troops should be sent to other Points. Fort Boise should be established As a military Post with two companies. One company should be stationed at Florence or to a Point built in its Vicinity possibly on Salmon River proper and one company should be established at either Elk City Pierce City or Oro Pino As an examination seemed Best to determine. One company should be stationed at the Cour Dialene Mission on the Clark s Fork at Parks crossing. Four Compa Nies should be stationed at fort Hall and the military Post at fort Laramie should be maintained with a Large and Strong Force. These Are All needed for the purposes of Protection to the Overland Emigrant and the Security of the miners while at work in the Nez Perces and Salmon River mines. A military Road should be opened from Deer Lodge to fort Laramie and from Deer Lodge to Salt Lake. A Militar Road should Al so be constructed from fort Benton to Beaver head Valley and from Beaver head to Salmon River or to Florence. The entire Mountain Region from the Salmon River mountains to the Eastern Plains at the head of the Platte should be explored mapped and reported upon and a Short and direct connection had Between fort Laramie and the Salmon River Gold mines As it May yet be discovered that the shortest and Best route for a Pacic railway to the Columbia May be from the Platte via Salmon River to Walla Valla. At any rate it is Well worthy a special examination. The upper Mia Souri and Yellowstone Rivers Are Well worthy be ing tested by steam by the government for great natural purposes As aids in building the Pacic Railroad. The indians should be concentrated As much As possible and a Rocky Mountain superintend ency should be established with its head quarters either in the Deer Lodz or in the Beaver head Valley and should include the crows blackfeet snakes Bannock flatheads pen Oreilley Kootenay and Mountain Nez Perces. A Columbia River superintendency should be established with its head quarters at Walla Walla and to include All the Indiana lying be tween the Rocky and Cascade ranges of mountains from the 49th parallel to Utah both in. Oregon and Washington. La new military at of Oregon and washing Lton should be created with its head quarters at fort Walla Walla. A St class military Road should be opened from Wallula to puget sound and a military Telegraph connect Portland puget sound and Salt Lake with Walla Walla. So much of Eastern Washington territory As was formerly a portion of Oregon and an equal portion of Dacotah should be erected into a new territory with its capital at such a Point As the Center of population would at present Best deter mine. Mail facilities should be established from hell Gate to fort Benton from Deer Lod e to fort Laramie from Deer Lodge to Salt Lake and from Beaver head Valley to Florence and from Florence to fort Boise and the general land of be should be ordered to have a thorough exploration of this Region made at the earliest Date practicable and a report and map made of the Gold Region on both slopes of the mountains. A Branch mint should be established at Walla Walla or Portland. Information . A. S. Stone writes us from Corvallis Oregon that information is wanted by mrs. Delay of that place in relation to the whereabouts of her husband Joseph delay. Or. De Lay left Omaha for Walla Walla last Spring and has not since been heard from by his family. Or.

S rates Man i am in a position to announce to you that the Prospect of a Row betwee the oregonian and rms is very Good. It willbe carried on by Holbrook and a ams to the very verge of extermination in a political sense. Holbrook will display the most variety but Adams will get his missiles from nastier places and will hold out the longest. Hoi Hook will try the Dignin contempt Dodge which will be no go for Adams will Hunt him out and prod him with a Sharp stick Anth. 1 look with great interest to the upshot of this get which pro Mises to be one of the most interesting and Nasty in the history of Oregon newspapers. Something about the Milesian. The Rev. Or. Ca Rey a presbyterian divine lately delivered a lecture in this City in which he attempted to prove that presbyterianism was the original Type of christianity practice in the Emerald Isle. This lecture has aroused the resentment of the pure Milesian in a remarkable degree and they very justly consider this a libel on Saint Patrick who St converted Ireland to the Christian religion. Upon the Subj Ctol Saint Patrickus ordination by the successors of the apostles in the line of succession in the roman see there has never been a doubt cast and it looks rather bad to take away from the Catholic Irish their claim on the character of Saint Patrick the More particularly As they have been robbed of their National Independence and pretty much All that renders life tolerable. Howsoever i suppose it is none of my business any farther than i claim connection with the celts through the Highlands of Scotland which even that prejudiced old scotch antiquarian Logan admits were Popup dby an Irish tribe. Has mamas Cox Novaksr. Notwithstanding the protests of the Christian fld Vocate we have at length got a corps of thespians to exhibit their shapes at the Willamette theatre. The performances Are in the heavy line rather and Melo dramatic to a degree. Metamora has met with some Success with As chief of the wampanoag. But the company is new with several who have adopted the sock and Buskin very recently so there is usually a hitch in Ever performance and the stage business is of the Clumsy est. This theatrical company was encouraged to commence o Era tons by the commercial but that paper did not live to witness the results fits Good works but suddenly expired. The Pacific City panic. For some time alter the Pacic City scheme was started the people of this place were much agitated and it May be truthfully said they were scared out of a years growth by their apprehensions that Portland would Cave in. This utter has now subsided and property holders cease to trouble them elves about the growth of the place at the Mouth of the River. The fact is that there does not appear to be any Bottom to the Pac a City scheme and it is Likely to furnish another paper City to the coast and nothing More. It is a very Signi cant fact that Pacic City is along Side of care disappointment and that alone Shou discourage its projectors. California immigrants. The latest Steamer arrivals bring considerable numbers of californians bound for the Oregon and w Ashington mines but it is not Likely that the wild Rush of last year willbe repeated. Business is Dull and Cash buyers Are As scarce As True piety at a whisky shop. Regular. The sound mall frequent complaints Are made in relation to the transmission of mail matter from this place to the sound. It appears As if the bags bib frequently cached for weeks on the route and As much As a month is frequently required to transmit the paper mail to Olympia. In fact the mail facilities to and from this place Are not half what the government pays for or what the people ought to have. Whether the fault is with contractors or the Post masters below we not decide. Over the has commenced Over the Trail from this City to grand Ronde Valley. The Trail is reported in a Good condition and from henceforth will most Likely be the Only travelled route by parties going from Here to the mines. The Bridge across the grand Ronde River is completed. This route shortens the distance from Valla Walla to Auburn about forty Miles the total distance being from 105 to 110 Miles. Very of ssh of us a correspondent of the Portland times witing Over the signature of Idaho says crazy scr Antio objects to holding of be during or. Lin Colnes administration.
