Walla Walla Washington Statesman (Newspaper) - February 06, 1864, Walla Walla, WashingtonThe Washington statesman saturday morning. Feb. ,6, 1964. # letter from an old Friend in the East bearing Date dec. 1563, contains the Follo ing Signi cant suggestions some of which subsequent items by Telegraph go far to con pm there is Little Hope Felt Here of the War being brought to a close until after the next presidential election and then whichever party May Triu Niph i i it is earnestly hoped and believe provide the Only Means which All admit can be use to stay the scenes of blood and carnage that Are daily occurring in our midst. And devastating the fairest heritage Ever bequeathed to Man since the morning stars Sang together. That Means must be a convention one in which the North will not be compelled to in Miliate herself43od forbid but still something that will give to the South a semblance of an excuse for throwing 06 the Yoke that has Long and bitterly galled them for there is that in Sciple in human nature and especially americ an human nature which stubbornly says never give up As Long As there is a show for resistance when the Rod is raised Over their Heads and the Holder is saying you must do that and so whether congenial to you feelings or not what Man that has the genuine american blood coursing through his veins would so humiliate himself Cven in single combat when his passions 3 had become Eroh sed to the gating pitch 7. Not 1 nor you nor even the preacher who advises you to turn the left Cheek to receive a blow similar to the one that has been Given and is smarting upon the right. Lam Satis de that a Large proportion of the people of the. South would to Day return to the Union repudiate their debt and begin the world anew upon any terms that might be of ered by the North inside of the Constitution that once bound them to the in. Ion. If they would not if they utterly refused to assume their places again in the Union then should say prolong the War until they Are compelled from very necessity to return. But who can foretell How Long that will be it May be for years and it must be forever so far As Earth Isz concerned to Many hundreds and thousands of our Gallant soldiers who will be called to meet them upon the Battle eld for there is no denying the fact that greek has met met greek and that the South seems to be far from exhausted yet. S r s in conversation with an intelligent representative from Ohio the other Day gathered some inter Esting facts i regard to the programme of the party in Power. He puts it up Asa foregone conclusion that there can be no end to the War until shot the presidential election and however distasteful it May be to those not behind the scenes to hear it that the carrying on of the War is henceforward so far As practicable and so far As it can be done without exciting too much open argument for a suspicion of their intentions to be conducted on strictly party principles. The old democratic doctrine that to the victors belong the spoils is to be harnessed up and applied More than Ever to the army and in states where the Laws allow soldiers to vote especially will this doctrine be carried out. In the consolidation of regiments and in the appointment of of cers for new once those who a re known As out and out republicans will be Given the preference to command indirectly the votes for the Republican candidate for the presidency. Or. Lincoln it is pretty generally con ceded will be that Man. The Greenback system having about run to the it limit it seems to be pretty Well understood in Mancial circles that no More will be issued yet Money must be raised to keep the warn going until ter the presidential election.

This institution has been in excellent Means for raising a Revenue in some localities Here. Heretofore it was new sum mat the administration would not. Touch the Pacic states through fear that they would Slough off but be not surprised if they take courage from the result of the late election in California and give you a Chance at the draft yet. They dont want your men but they do want your Money. The democracy will be fully United Here before the presidential election. The peace party that you hear so much about is very Small and the terms Copperhead traitor and secessionist applied so indiscriminately to democrats by the republicans have lost their Charm. We silence them by pointing proudly tithe army and asking who Are our Best generals l Are they not democrats and i pre dict notwithstanding All the War in hence that can be brought to Bear that the next president will be a Democrat and a Union Man in the True sense of the word. Thou Welcome again peace and Prosperity to our new distracted at-810 spun a Nice game of dog cat dog is now being carried on Between the Republican of Ici als at Olympia and the House that Abraham built in shout to be razed to the ground by the commotion produced by the hybrids within. The not has be come pretty Well established that renegade democrate and old line whigs won t fatten in the same pen. The War Between the Surveyor general of the St clue. And the Secretary of the second commenced Over the printing question is waxing warmer by de Grees. Thus for the Secretary has had it pretty much his own Way but the Surveyor general through his personal in hence with the president threatens the Secretary with of Cial decapitation an event of which the Secretary is said to be in momentary expectation yet i a Jer in pointed at the Surveyor by the friends of the Secretary and in Case he executes his threat he in turn is to be excommunicated from the re publican fold. Many Rich developments will no doubt be made before the contest is ended. work of consolidating the w. Infantry will soon be completed. As the Law upon the subject provides that ulcers shall be retained Only upon the ground of Merit and As that word is susceptible of Many constructions in these Days of political me or ruin it will not be a mat ter of Surprise to see All of cers who have Ever expressed anything like conservative sentiments named St upon the list to be mustered out.

Appeal a Radical abolition Sheet thus discourses of the next presidency and the probability of lengthening out the presidential term from four to Twenty years or to an inde Nite period. Of course under the appeals dispensation Abraham is to be the St for some reason bordering on the super. Natural something not dissimilar to the manner in which Providence has decreed the Fate of slavery the presidential Nom Nee for 1864 xes itself. No one talks of any Means being necessary to make capital for the Man everybody mentions his name in this connection As if nobody was opposed to him or that it is possible for any other Man to supersede him. The president is to continue in his seat until the War is Over if it lasts Twenty years. Such is the spontaneous opinion of All men the secessionists included. Praise of Lincoln is in every mans Mouth everybody Speaks of the Hon esty and integrity of the president. After getting through with the customary routine of lincolns honesty integrity etc., the Appeal goes beyond this mundane sphere in which Only mortals reside to and a being his equal in greatness As follows _ he rides on the Waves of sedition and internecine War with the Faith of 11 Christ walking on the boisterous sea of Galillee. compare a third or fourth rate lawyers Faith with that of a being whom we Are taught is All Wise and All goodness is or ought to be the sum of All Villa inies. Justifying has san the editor of the Golden age ending that he has made a mis Teplin this unwarranted attack upon the signers of the Steiner Ger letter and the town of Walla Walla is seeking to justify himself by writing bogus correspondence purporting to have gone from this place to Lewiston by private express. Write away or. Editor whoever you Tare if you imagine it will do you any Good but be assured that a thousand such letters would not remove from the minds of the people Here the impression you have created that you Are a Ewa idly meddling slanderer. I you will place yourself face to face with any one of the signers of that paper and Call him a traitor or a secessionist or i you will do the same to ninety nine out of one Hun. Dred of the citizens of the town which you denominate As the hot bed of treason we will insure you As severe a castigation is any other dog Ever received. The Way they do gentleman who came up this week from below says that passengers can scarcely land at the Dalles before they Are surrounded with runners from Umatilla Landing who set Forth to them All the Many advantages of travelling to Boise via Umatilla in preference to any other route. They state among other things that the roads via Wallula and Walla Walla Are blocked up and will hot be pass Able before the St of june. If ulna Tilla had any real advantages Over the Points above there would be no use for the people there to hire runners to misrepresent other routes but the travelling Public will soon enough learn this fact for themselves. Murder at Bonn a or Joseph r. Seely of Bannock City was shot at a Ball held at Buena Vista bar on the 19th hit by a Man known As Jack Holbrook. Hol Brook had a Dif culty with one t.

There is to be weeping and wailing and gnashing of Teeth civil and uncivil of i yes Are to be led by just such men As the age Man dictates and none others there is to be great commotion in our midst shortly. Our county and City affairs Are to be attended to very soon by somebody up at Lewiston. The people Here will not be obliged or compelled to attend to their own business. Everything will be red up for them and All they will have to do will be to say Good Good Yea verily All these things Are to be Ful led for the Wise Man of the age hath promised it. Freedom or , the poet must have had a Little brass in his composition or he never could have written this verse to speak his thoughts is Ever y Freeman s right in peace in War in Council and in get. Such extravagant ideas of Liberty might have been Well enough in homers time but if he were alive now and held a commission under our Loyal Republic he would see the necessity of holding his Tongue unless he chose to dissemble and think exactly As our Loyal radicals do. If he could do the latter he might then spout Liberty without fear or farm. Passenger train Bil Jas. Wood started on monday with a passenger train of teen or Twenty animals and As Many Pas sengers for Boise. He will return in about thirty Days after which he proposes to run a passenger train regularly from Here to Boise leaving Here every week. Tax upon Bill has passed oui territorial legislature providing for the taxation of chinamen. The Johns in the territory will hereafter have to pay at the rate of about six dollars each per month. The Revenue is to go half to the territory and the residue to the county in which the chinamen Are residing. It was the intention we believe of the framers of the Bill to include with the chinamen our coloured population of the african Type but it was found upon consultation that the sympathizers with the latter race would de feat it and the idea was abandoned. The principal object of the Bill is intended to Dis courage chinese emigration to this country and the possibility of that kind of labor coming into Competition with or to the exclusion of White. It is in fact a Bill to pro Mote the interests of the White Man and to protect White labor and Why a preference or distinction should be made Between a Black Man and a chinamen we cannot divine. The labor of each when brought into Competition with White degrades the latter and if one degrades White labor More than the other the Odds is certainly with the negro. It used to be a favorite argument with col. Baker and that class of Rubli cans to assert that their party did not like the negro that they desired to get him As far away from Northern free labor As Pussy ble and that this was the reason Why they worked to exclude slavery and slave labor from the territories. But How does it turn out the dominant party now utterly re fuses to give an adequate Protection to White labor. It seeks by every Means in its Power to bring the coloured Man and coloured labor upon an Equality with White. This policy if not happily averted by the Wisdom of our people must eventuate in nothing but misery to the negro and Ever lasting disgrace and Deg ration of the White Man. We Hope that our next legislature will be composed of men who will Endeavor to legislate so As to effectually Check the emigration of negroes into the territory. We Are in favor of discouraging chinese emigration to this country and equally in favor of discouraging negro emigration. Sweet this head the Golden age of this week comes out in a furious bom bastes style says the mails have not arrived at Lewiston As they should and wishes to know if postmaster Kelly has withheld them because of its Aegean Sta ble article. It professes to believe that such must be the ease and that Kelly in conjunction with our citizens is withholding the mails As a Means of Sweet revenge for its terrible augean Effort. If Kelly and the citizens Here were possessed of As Little sense and As contemptible a spirit As the augean Man the mails would no doubt be withheld for the Sake of revenge. The idea of holding the whole people of Lewis ton responsible for the dirty Stribblin nos of the editor of the age is infamous and the intimation from that Sheet that Kelly or any honorable Man would be guilty of such an act forces the conviction that the editor is both Knave and feel. Third House body at its last meeting unanimously adopted the subjoined Resolution resolved that the late attack made upon the people of this town by the Golden age a newspaper published at the town of Lewiston is unjust and uncalled for and has a tendency to discourage the Union Sci ziment and gives to the enemies of the country food and nourishment which will fatten them and should not be countenanced by peaceable and Independent men. Here is one that passed at the previous meeting with what unanimity we Are not informed resolved that the legislative Assem Bly of Washington territory be reprimanded for their too freely mixing bean poker and horse ies with their proceedings. A Large gentleman who has been spending the Winter in Ore. And California writes a larger emigration will go next season to the mines of Washington and Idaho than has Ever before gone to the upper country.
