Walla Walla Washington Statesman (Newspaper) - January 03, 1863, Walla Walla, WashingtonThe Washington statesman. Saturday Moog Jan. 3, 1862 the Railroad looting. The Railroad meeting. Held on wednes Day for the purpose of taking the preliminary Steps towards organising the Walla a Ella Railroad company was Well attended and gave the Best evidence of the inter est Felt by our citizens in the Enterprise. If any had doubts before of the practicability of the scheme the action of the meet ing taken together with the class of Citi Zens who participated in it was suf client to dispel any such feelings. A majority of the corp orators were present besides a Large number of persons who Are willing to As Socrate themselves with the charter mein hers. And who have the Means to subscribe liberally towards the construction of the Toad. There was an evident and Earnest desire manifested to transact such business As would result in the Early and successful commencement of the Road. There were no Long speeches made for the occasion called for no Owery eloquence or rights of the imagination. We look upon the work As already be gun and regard it when completed As one of the Best paying investments for those who have surplus capital. Counting up the amount which May be considered As Al ready pledged which we have obtained from conversation with parties Here and adding it to the $250,000 which capt. Mul Len writes us can be obtained in new York City we make a total of shoo too almost enough to Complete the work. In this we make no allowance for subscriptions which can be obtained in this county outside of the City at the Dalles Portland and other Points. Be Are told by col. Buckle who is now in this City that the Oregon steam navigation company will liberally. So soon As the committee appointed by the meeting report the articles of association and by Laws All to feel Lis posed to engage in the work will have an Opportunity offered them for entering into the association and enrolling their names As among the St to Aid in the construction of this the St Railroad in washing ton territory the Pioneer As it were of the Iron band that is Ere Long destined to stretch across the continent and unite us with the East. The following Are the proceedings of the meeting As furnished by the Secretary the meeting was called to order and on motion e. B. Whitman was chosen president and w. W. Johnson Secretary. The charter granted by the legislature to the Eor orators and their associates was then read by the president and also a letter from capt. John Mullan stating the prospects of securing from $250,000 to $300,000 Worth of Stock taken in new York City and other items of interest connected with the Enterprise. The following gentlemen were then elected As commissioners to open Hooks and solicit subscriptions in the places named capt. John Mullen Washington City and new . We. H. Wallace Washington City. Col. J. S. Ruckle Portland. J. C. Ainsworth Thos. H. Smith Vancouver. Hon. J. E. Wyche " capt. R. W. Kirkham san Francisco. Capt. T. W Lysle s. W. Tatem Wallula. J. M. Vansyckle. " 0. Hums son Dalles. H.

The Fol lowing gentlemen were appointed As the com. Mittee w. W. Johnson we. A. Mix r. R. Rees. On motion. The Secretary was instructed to in form the commissioners of their appointment by letter and also to furnish a copy of the proceed Ings of this meeting for publication. On motion the meeting their adjourned subject to the Call of the president. E. B. Whitman president. W. W. Lons sex Sec y. The Newa. We devote most of our space this week to the late Eastern news and the Gover nor s message. The news from the seat of War is far from encouraging while that from the capital is no less pleasant. Sew Ard who was stigmatized at the beginning of the War As the blackest abolitionist in the Cabinet has it seems been two conservative for certain members of Congress and by them asked to resign. We can conceive of no other offence of which he has been guilty. The result of this action has it appears effected an entire dissolution of the Cabinet. If the resignations have actually taken place we apprehend the presi Dent will have a Dif cult task in forming an equally Able one while we very much doubt that the place of Seward can be led from out the Republican ranks. From the operations before Fredericksburg. It would seem that Pope s blunders have found a parallel in Burnsides movements there. At any rate it appears from the dispatches that he has withdrawn his troops from the contest without having accomplished any favourable results to the Union cause. Unless he has some ulterior object in View by which he will redeem himself from this apparent defeat we shall not be surprised if the next dispatches from the cast bring us news that the same class of politicians who found in him the Man for the times Are loudly crying again for strategy. A commission it appears. Has been despatched to Fredericksburg to inquire into the causes of his backward movement they will moot Likely and As one of these the length of time which he gave the rebels to build Forti cations. If the War is to be gunned by to cans at Washington in Stead of generals in the eld and if com manding generals Are to be made and in made at the pee Dixit of factions we say give us by All Means that class who adv Gate strategy and strategic movements and who have military brains enough to conduct an army. In preference to anti i strategy anti brains and Pope Haralm leis Olympia dec. 19th, 1862. It gives me pleasure to communicate the fact that both branches of the legislative Assembly have Nally got into working or Der. The Council completed its Organiza Tion on monday last by compromising upon other candidates toll the positions offer Geant at arms and doorkeeper the other of Ces having been led on the previous saturday. It is worthy of mention that Over two Hundred ballots were had for ser Geant at arms the Council standing four against four and although or. Moore was present on monday. He very properly refrained from casting his vote for either of the candidates thinking that inasmuch Althey had got themselves into the dilemma it As Best to let them get out of it. He did however propose a third Man thus ? 1 Nally ending the strife. The standing committees have been announced in the coun Oil and i am told they Are satisfactory to All its members save one the Defeated candidate for the presidency who by the by is said to be one of the sound Candi dates for Congress. He took umbrage be cause president Simms did not see to to give him the chairmanship of the most responsible committee in the Council the judiciary and won t Servo on any of the committees. If reports As to the style of his mane vering legislation Are True i imagine neither the Council nor the people will lose anything by his staying off from All the committees. In the House several Bills Are in course 1of passage. Several memorials have passed among which Are the following memorial relative to fortifying the Mouth of the co 1lumbia River relative to treaty and Exten Sion of surveys in Spokane county relative to establishing a Tri weekly mail service in coaches from Dalles to Valla Walla with others of a similar nature. On wednesday a Resolution to go into join convention with 1 the Council for the election of Printer was 1 introduced into the House and pending a motion to suspend the rules and read Sec Ond time the House adjourned. Yesterday it was taken up and amended by Xing to 1 Morrow for the election and passed. It is 1 not known whether the Council will agree 1 to it and i shall not be surprised if they l give the House an Opportunity to concur by 1designating another Day for this business. In the mean time the governor has seen to to appoint or. Geo. H. Barnes Public Prin ter knowing of course that it would Gol into the hands of the Standard. In Mak 1 ing this appointment the governor has As l sued a Power which does not belong to 1 him a Power which is neither sanctioned by the organic act of the territory by Thel Laws of the same nor by precedent. 0n the contrary there is a Law in the statutes 1. Which has never been disproved by con-1 Gress authorizing the legislature to elect a Printer annually. If any one outside of the legislature holds this prerogative it is 1 the Secretary and not the governor As a reference to the provisions of the organic act plainly shows. It is True they Are each 1 made disbursing of cers of the government but there is a Plain distinction Between them As to what moneys and for hat objects they shall disburse. No one disputes the right of the Secretary in Case the leg lature fails to elect to make a contract with whoever he May see to to have the print ing done but the governor is nowhere authorized to have anything to do with it. In the House on wednesday the governor s message was read by the clerk and be 1thousand copies ordered printed a copy of 1 which is herewith enclosed. 1 resolutions were introduced yesterday1relative to the death of Geil Stevens and 1unanimously passed. I Send you a 0013? 0f the resolutions also the remarks of . M. Bagley of claim on the occasion 1mr. Gar Elde was invited within the bar 1 and spoke to the Resolution with much feel -1 ing and memorial has passed the Council Pray ing for the establishment of a line of mail service from Salt Lake to Valla Walla via ibis e and powder River. It will without doubt pass the House. A general incorporation act. Similar to the one passed by Thellas legislative Assembly of Oregon. Has been introduced into the Council and will probably pass that body. Such an act As this at so Early 9. Period in our history needs to be very carefully framed and guar ded lest it work injustice upon portions of the territory. In the Council to Day the question of the adoption of the resolutions relative to gen. Stevens being before that body Hon. 0. B. Mcfadden delivered an eloquent and impressive Eulogy to the memory of the Brave Soldier and True Patriot. N. Militar Ball we acknowledge the compliment of an invitation to be present at the military Ball at fort Walla Walla on new year s evening. We learn from those who participated in the festivities of the occasion that it was one of most pleas ant re unions of the season and that the old time reputation of the Post for Render ing occasions of this kind agreeable to All was Well sustained. Our Best wish for the volunteers is that another year will and them restored to citizenship and beneath the smiles of peace enjoying the always More pleasant new year s evening when surrounded by the friends of their own Homes. Portland have effected arrangements by which we will hereafter have a regular correspondent in Portland he in an old hand at the Bellows and we can assure our readers that they will always and his letters worthy of perusal. His St letter appears in to Day s Issue. Portland correspondence. Portland dec. 21, 1862. Eds. Statesman l he legislative machinery of your territory has at last got to work. The upper country you will perceive. Has the Honor conferred on it of lending both houses. Proba Bly a notion that honors Are hereafter to of from the Eastern counties had something to do with this result and the personal popularity of messes. Simms and Reed did the balance. Appearances Are decidedly in favor of the Legisla Ture making itself useful and for once the territory is Likely to have legislation suited to its varied necessities. The Delegate ship Scarcity 0f candidates. In travelling through the Western portion of Washington territory. I have been frequently struck with the fact that not one half of the inhabitants think of going to Congress at the next election. This Scarcity of congressional material ads a parallel in the death of senatorial Aspi rents in Oregon where you know the Peeple Are particularly indifferent to political promotion. The newest Dodge in regard to the Delegate ship that has com to Light has so much of the Ludi Crous in it that i am compelled to give it to you entire. In doing so Ishall be necessitated to touch in this letter and those which May follow on a deep Laid scheme. The new Dodge. My dear sirs has been forced upon the Olympia politicians by the conditions of their geographical position towards the rest of the territory. The Olympia clique Tats were fully alive to the growing Power of the Eastern counties As far Back As the Spring of 1861. Early in the Spring of 1862, they dispatched one of the most popular of their caloric to the upper country with orders to locate at Lewiston and look a or the interests of the sound country. When you know the name of the gentleman referred to you will also understand that while looking out for the interests of the Schog District he did not neglect his own. His name is go a Esq. The St work chalked out was to get the Mountain delegations in the next territorial legislature right. Commencing at the commencement this cunning old gentle Man wrote to his friends and strikers at the Vari Ous mining centers to be sure and have sound men on leading questions placed on their tickets. These letters were shown around among the Union men and created alarm. From this resulted a partial defeat of the Union tickets in Idaho and Nez Perces counties. Nothing daunted the astute old gentleman sprung the division question on the Peeple of the Eastern District. At this time or. A. S. S. Gould was the editor of the Golden age. That journal at once opened its batteries and Lent its powerful in hence to the movement. The eld of intrigue enlarged. Rhy not go into a state organization at once ? it we do this says the sagacious old gentle Man we will have two senator ships one place in the House and minor offices in this new idea attracted to its support the Model Beck Iver and keeper of Public moneys. It was at once conceived that the oratorical talents of this gentleman were a dest Derium devoutly to be wished for. The speeches which he had conned Over so often the addresses which he had so often delivered to gaping audiences were to be refurnished and deliberately in cited on the people. The third Man in this new Tri uni rate was the Elefant and irrepressible scant to. This gentleman was to do the re works and make himself generally useful. That particular interest he had in the or nuts of the scheme i cannot conceive. It is sure that he does not want of be himself and unless there was some thing in the shape of a Good fat contract. To be Given him lain forced to believe that he was acting a usual under purely disinterested motives. The candidate for the lower House does not appear in the original programme but he has been determined on since the three principal conspirators Laid the division scheme. His name is ads a hopeful scion of the Law. The Hopes of the principal conspirators Are about to be realized. The gentleman from the sound will probably be a candidate for Delegate and on his election depends the scheme of division and the state organization. But of this More another time. Division hat it Means. The division of the territory Means that the Western half of it shall be under the control of the clique the portages of the Columbia River Are to be kept As heretofore a state government is to be saddled on to to the Eastern District to give places to a set of political sharper and con tracts to Mancial sharper the Industry of your miners and Farmers is to be taxed to the utmost to support this new state government and the Contro of your great commercial outlet is to be handed Over to a band of monopolists. State of Public feeling 1n Oregon. I resume your people think that the recent proclamation of the president in regard to Sla very in the Southern states is creating a feeling of hostility to the present administration. I do not and that people at 2 much excited about it. The popular indifference in All political measures approaches solidity. The voice of the people is in favor of the measures that May destroy the rebellion. If or. Lincoln a subordinates defeat the rebels there is nothing inside of our pres ent form of government that the people would deny to his authority but it he fails the verdict of the people Here will be against him. In Short it is impressed on the people that the Union Force is Strong enough to defeat the rebels and if it is i not used to that end the administration should be held responsible for the failure. Regular. December 26th, 1862. Thi. Climate has just begun to weep slightly. You May remember. That Byron or 9" other poet called Rome the Johe 3f of St from the sorrowful aspect of her ancient a 3- sirs Oregon is a More sorr Onul looking plat than Rome Ever was and As to weeping we can. Double discount her and give her seventy be in the Hundred to Start on. When it comes to do ing the Lach Remose we Are on it. A Njust show you How Damp it is Here i May truthfully state that you will get wet when you cant see a drop of rain falling it is Mist that does it. But i need not expatriate on the subject to men who Are liable to a suspicion that their webs Are still concealed in their boots. Is mud and to pretty girls. That caption is suggestive to men like you and myself. I have found out 3 Dodge which de serves to be generally known. I make mud the subject of conversation among ladies although it must be admitted to be a dirty subject. Ifa Young lady says she Don t like mud set it Down that her angles Are not pretty on the contrary if a Young lady dont care for mud bet your Lite she has Small feet angles ditto and has got new Balmoral with red stripes around the Bottom. Further on the Suh act of pretty girls girls Are numerous Here. I went to m. E. Church on Christmas eve to see the distribution of presents from a Christmas tree. Pretty girls were there of course All in a Semi circular Row. If you want to know who was the prettiest girl in the House ask who got the most presents and had to get a Dray to haul them Home on. I Felt for a moment As if i could consent to be smothered among them but sober second thought induced me to conceive that possibly my views of Femi nine perfection were rather elevated. Anyhow they had a Good time there and at the episcopal Church also. While the innocent amusements were going on at. The churches two dances were coming off at no. 2 s House and the Turners Hall. Not that dancing is sinful but when you Are in Rome do As romans do. And if you come to Portland turn up the White of your eyes assume a virtue it you have it not that is our style. Maybe you would like to know who it is that has instituted this style Well i cant Tell because am one of them myself you see. Of one thing you May rest assured we Are not Good it is not for the want of pretension on that score. The patriotism 0f officials. I am frequently surprised by the extreme probity of our Federal of be holders. Considering that they look with profound contempt on the people out Here who have but Little influence on their appointment or removal it is quite Surpri sing that they do As Well As they do. However there Are some matters pending that will strike upon the Papular car like the crash of a Thunder Bolt Flom a Clear sky if i am not much Mista Ken. We have been expecting it for some time and whether it comes to Light or not i am sure that some Penon deserves to be jerked Bald headed who is now basking in the suns me of Popup Lar favor 7161011 Smith the great Economizer. Everybody has heard of Victor Smith who commanded at the bombardment of port town Send. Smith is Salmon p. Chases Man. Or a Man after his own heart i forget which. Of course everybody is familiar with his removal of the custom Blouse from port Townsend to port an Gelos. I May mention by the Way. That port Townsend is a Small place Dif cult to and some where on the sound which dragged out a some what precarious existence from having a Marine Hospital located near it. Smith is revolutionary in his system of administration cutting off Small leaks each of which had a Small fellow attached to it sucking with All his might routing out sin a jurists. Who Are on the steal and making him self generally obnoxious. He has a ship of War the shun cd with which he reduces refractory places to obedience and visits neighbouring states and provinces. His mania for retrenchment and Reform is the marked peculiarity of ter. I have noticed that Mancial reformers Are generally More awake to other Peoples mistakes than their own. Howsoever Victor has made a great saving and has gone to san Francisco where he is looked upon As a curiosity. He is said to he feeding at a restaurant and where they sell three plates for a Quarter to see if he can not and some plan by which the expenses of the san Francisco custom of vials can be reduced. He has my Best wishes to reduce them to just such diet As will tone their stomachs Down to a Bacon an greens View of life. This of course people will consider a levelling inclination but it is needed. Most of Uncle Sam s civil of cers out Here Are something a great Deal worse than i shall Call them. Washington territory officials. There is a Kilkenny get going on among the Federal oilers in your territory at this time. By unanimous consent they have a hawked the Secretary l. J. S. Turney. And Are now plotting contrivance to Cut each others political throats. I wish they my succeed. However Turney will not give 1" of ice of Secretary. He continues to Malters to the legislature in which he refuses to get them any postage Stamps refuses to get them two maps dont believe they have a right to one map and determines that he cant be a Correct map anyhow. And they shall not have any. Evans sends letters to the Legisla Ture he will get postage Stamps he cant get two maps but can get one and wants them to give it Back when they Are done with it. Kendall s shooting affair. Of course you have an account of kendalls shooting a air. Ido not know How Dick May View it but i think Kendall is exactly right. I i would have every editor con be himself to the Bounds of decent expression and then if any rut an touched him he ought to shoot the scoundrel in his tracks. It is Only by the conductors of newspapers placing themselves in the Van of Public opinion that thieves and villains Public and private can be restrained. This being the use they have a right to speak without intimidation and if the Public does not support them in it they ought to support themselves in it. These Are my sentiments to a nicely. The time for beating and intimidating Public journalists Hope is past. More about Kendall. I have just met a gentleman from Olympia a resident of the upper country who informs me that Kendall is sustained by the popular voice. He has not been arrested and Howe is getting Well. One Federal of Cial had posted himself to see the fun As Kendall Calls it and when Howe was shot the truculent old scamp turned and left. Regular. M latest Eastern news. Dates to dec. 15.
