Walla Walla Washington Statesman (Newspaper) - October 11, 1862, Walla Walla, WashingtonTee washi7�g7t6��txtieemxe ext urday none Ian h. 1862. The division question. Some Little discussion has occurred Dur ing the past few months touching the ques Tion of the division of Washington Terri tory originating with the people of the sound and mostly con Ned to that locality. There has been thus far but Little Merit in the discussion and but Little importance has been attached to the question by the people the measure being regarded As in expedient at the present time. The sound people we believe propose the Cascade Range of mountains As the Boundary line Between themselves and what they have been pleased to term the new territory or state of Idaho. The Al Mountaineer an Oregon paper enters the ring with an argument in favor of a new state based upon the doctrine of incompatibility of interests and makes the modest request that Wasco county be lopped off from Oregon and added to the new state a proposition that will be regarded is unfavourably in Oregon As is the sound Boundary line by the people of the t upper country. We have no idea that at the present time i the division of the territory is in any Wise a practicable scheme. It is not Only impracticable but it is premature if it were not so. The Only importance that can pee. Sibly attach to the measure in the primer embryo condition of things is of a purely political character and the discussion of the question owes its origin to a desire on the part of certain politicians to secure by a division what they feared they might some time otherwise lose. Under these circumstances the discussion took its Rise and there is just about As much Merit in the project As in its promptings. In a com Mercial Point of View the present arrange ment answers All the purposes of Trade or at least As satisfactorily As could be hoped through a division of the territory. And particularly is this True if the Cascade Range is to be the line of the division for the people of the upper country holding As they do the Paramount interests in the Channel of communication Between them selves and the shipping Points below can never consistently consent to relinquish their voice in the legislation touching the conduct of this Channel. We Are Content to take our chances with the territory undivided in securing just and equitable legislation for the interests of different localities but we Are not disposed to forfeit our natural rights to the keeping and control of those whose interests it is alleged Are inimical to our own. So far As the sound people Are concerned they would reap no benefits by a division in respect to these advantages that they do not already pos sess. The argument of incompatibility of interests is a very weak one As applied to the pre sent condition of the country. It May have some Force in the minds of aspiring politicians who Are striving to make additional seats in Congress and create numerous of Ces of emolument. There Are no pressing wants that could be met by a division no exigences that demand it or embarrassments that would be removed by it. Be apprehend that the territory will remain undivided in spite of the agitators until it becomes suf a gently populated to entitle her to admission As a state then i the sound people desire to stay out and remain in territorial Vassalage we won t object provided we can agree upon the Western Boundary. It is not at All Likely that Oregon can be induced to part with that portion of her territory formerly included in Asco county it promises too Rich a Harvest at the present time to admit of such a supposition. Nor do we think it any More Likely that Congress can he induced to believe that a division the chief Merit of which rests in creating positions for political Summers would be expedient or advisable. _ a subject for . A i Lone has succeeded in getting out another number of his seditious and traitorous pub 3 Lic Tiou the Oregon weekly Union. It is an infamous libel upon the name it has As l sued. As before its suspension the paper is crowded to the very guards with the most contemptible selections from the most bitter of the secession journals denouncing himself with All Northern people As cowards and patroons. His leading 1 editorial announces the utter futility of his i a Orts during the time of the suspension to harmonize the democracy of the state and concentrate its support upon one Lead ing paper. He travelled thousands of Miles in his peregrinations and owing to the fact i that he represented himself As the moving i spirit in the amalgamation project he to tally failed to enlist the divided sympathies of the democracy. He has reproduced the Union As the next Best thing in the line of his philanthropic endeavours and has the Assurance to Call upon the democracy to rally to its support. They had better turn him Over to general Wright under the or Der for the punishment of treason and thus relieve the country of a pestilent and treason disseminating journal and furnish what he is doubtless Labouring for Corn portable Winter quarters.

One of the i is Large enough to make a meal for a whole family. Correct Ioir in the letter of or. Chas. Goodnough regarding the Umatilla Agency published in our Issue of the 30th ult., a sentence read the of Cerl of this Agency Are Rotten to the it should have read the affairs of this Agency Are Rotten to the Core. I concentration and Dull times. The inhabitants of the Pacic coast Are said to be More excitable upon the subject1 of Gold and Money making than any other class of the american people. This is doubtless True and it is not Dif cult of so Lution. First we have the Gold mines to excite and second the residents of the Pacic coast Are mostly composed of that class who have been attracted hither by the mines with a View of bettering their for tunes though the rapid manner in which Many of them dispose of their Gold after they have obtained it negatives this latter position. The history of All the mining excitement on the coast shows that at the St reports of Rich strikes there has been a general disposition among the peo ple to Stampede for the new diggings and even these who have followed up All the excitements since the Days of 49. And who should at least have pro Ted by experience Are not less Hasty to pack up and go than those who come fresh from the lands of steady habits. Disappointed in one Twenty and All the excitements they and some quiet spot in which to Settle Down and be contented with a but just As they have placed themselves in a condition to make that living a new Eldorado is discovered in some Remote Point and the old de sire to make a Quick Fortune returns. Home comforts Are Sacri ced and the Means they have accumulated Are disposed of in order to obtain Money to defray the expenses of a journey to the new land of Promise. The sequel almost invariably shows them their error. Arriving at the goal they find that hundreds of others actuated by the same motives and desires have done likewise. The people have All concentrated at one Point the mining Region is overrun and while one Man makes ten or a Hundred Dol -1315 a Day ten or a Hundred men make nothing. The mines Are reported a bum Bug and the Fortune Hunters beat a re treat As Hasty As was their journey Thith Erward. During these excitements the surplus miners disappointed or not generally Tarry for awhile in the Vicinity of the mines to Prospect or to wait in the Hope that something new will be discovered. A demand for goods and provisions is created and one trader who gets in Early with a Supply makes Money. Others hear it and the excitement among this class becomes not less intense and unreasonable than with the miners and almost every Man who is not doing what he May deem it Rushing business at Home starts off with his goods and supplies for the mines. Arriving there they and the disappointed miners All leaving the demand for supplies de creasing and Nally they awake to a realization of the fact that the Market is Over stocked Aud that they must come Down to the Small pro to which they might have obtained at Home if not to the heavy losses which they would not have sustained had they remained in the quiet City or Village where they had become established. This disposition to concentrate makes times Lively at the St ush. But men do not Stop to re act upon the causes and without further reasoning they seem to regard the present Only As the Index to the future. Towns grow up beyond the de mands of the country and those who in Vest their Money in these places Seldom Ever realize a return. Already has the history of the mines of the upper country shown All these results though the mines Are not a Humbug but Are Good Rich and extensive As the hundreds of thousands of dollars Worth of Gold that has been taken from them during the summer full Well establishes. But the emigration thither has been too Large. Too Many men who were not Satis de to let Well enough alone in other localities have gone there to do worse. And to Day both from disappointed miners and merchants in Florence we hear the cry of Dull times and yet the miners who have claims there Are making their hundreds of dollars per Day. It is inevitable however that there Are yet too Many miners there for that immediate mining Camp and too Many tra Ders and speculators for All to realize for tunes from the demands of miners. Lew Iston echoes the cry and merchants who went there Early in the season big with Hope and expectation Are now leaving the place to seek some other 10 cavity for business. In their Onward March to these places they did not Stop to consider that the country was new and its Only resource the Gold mines. As the miners sought Only the locality of the richest diggings so the traders and speculators looked for the site of the Sacramento that should grow up upon the Sand Plains at the head of navigation on Snake i Lvpl or to the nearest Point of Supply for the mines and to Day at their Leisure they Are left to philosophize As to whether a country with no other resources but Gold mines covering a scope for hundreds of Miles in extent and accessible from All Points can support a trading population at one place Large enough to Supply the whole mining District. Whatever their theory May have been it is evident that they Are awaking to the truth that they must change their practice. Yet the impression which is created abroad by this backward move ment is incorrect. The fact that All do not succeed does not argue but that a por Tion May and when the country is cleared of its surplus or in producing population or when they accept the Opportunity to do something in less highly favored Camps the majority will Prosper. Notwithstanding the frequent assurances we receive both from returning miners and traders that both the above towns Are played out we have no Faith in any such doctrine. Hundreds and thousands of miners will work the mines in the Vicinity of these towns for years to come and in this respect they Are not without advantages Andl though Lewista May never become what visionary schemers have predicted for her i nor Florecne Lay claims to permanence and become a City of Magni cent proper tons. They will with the mines live beyond the present year. The presidents intimidation measure. A synopsis of president lincolns proclamation abolishing slavery in the states or parts of states that shall be found to be in rebellion after the St Day of january next. Has been published. It provides that the status of the different states shall then be determined by the president but that any state having a majority representation in the Federal Congress shall be deemed Loyal to the government. It is difficult to pre dict with certainty the effect of this Meas. Ure upon the great struggle now pending 3 i but judging it in All its bearings we can Dot but Rigard its promulgation at this time 88 go Essly impolitic and highly injurious to the cause which we suppose the presi Dent is Labouring to Subserve the maintenance and preservation of the Union. The object and entire Force of the proclamation ads its Compass in the idea. Of intimidating the rebel states into subjection to the fed eral authorities by the simple enunciation that after a certain Date their slaves willbe set at Liberty. Whether intended As such by the administration it willbe so regarded by the people of the South and the Confidence which has been hitherto reposed in the administration by the Loyal men of the Border states is not Only destroyed but the determination throughout the South to oppose the authorities of the government will be greatly strengthened. While their resistance to the Federal army willbe ren dered in the highest degree intense and desperate. In every feature its effect upon the South cannot be otherwise than Una. Morable because it will be evidence incontrovertible to their minds that the rebel leaders asserted the truth when they pro claimed the object of the War to be the abolition of slavery. Up to the issuance of this proclamation the people of the South had no reason to believe that the War was waged against them for any other purpose than the maintenance of the Union and 1 the conservatism of the South of the Bor Der states essentially sprung from and rests upon this principle alone. The address to the president of the Loyal members of Congress from the Border states at the assembling of the last session asserted this principle As the one upon which alone the people of their respective states could main Tain their allegiance to the Union and there is no disguising the fact that their pm adherence to the Union through All their trying reverses has been sustained by the belief that the Only object of the administration was to preserve the authority of the Federal government. It is evident from the declarations of leading Loyal men in the Border states that they do not be Lieve a proclamation of this character was necessary to preserve the Union or that it would in any manner Aid in doing so and therefore they must regard it As a departure from the principle above alluded to and the inauguration of an abolition policy. what degree the loss of these hitherto Loyal states and the conservative element of the South May affect the efforts of the government to suppress the rebellion and restore the Union is perhaps a matter of conjecture but it is certainly the True pol. Icy of the government rather to accumulate strength if possible for the performance of the Gigantic task before it than throw it 1 away upon the introduction of measures l calculated to drive a powerful element from1 its support. The effect of the proclamation in the Northern states will probably be to enlist in the War the sympathies and possibly the services of the abolition Crew who have been impatiently waiting and praying for the inauguration of a policy by the administration which would strike vitally at the whole system of slavery and leave no pos sible Chance for even a remnant of the Peculiar institution to survive the War. The abolitionists of the North the great mass of whom the records of enlistments have proved would not fight for the preservation of the Union will be expected to Volun Teer their services and Means new that an Opportunity is a order in their estimation to Compass their Darling scheme. Be doubt whether they will get much or give to any purpose. They Are eminently of the blustering order and although Blat ant and boisterous when it comes to get ing they Are proverbial for their peace proclivities. In the matter of furnishing the sinews of War we think the administration has Over estimated the Force of the abolition element and that in yielding to its unreasonable and imperious demands it has made a miserably poor Exchange of the conservatism of the country for All the Good that this fanatical horde May be expected to conserve. The president will have to draft them after All. Mails for the upper country.

Another Sacramento to use a favorite expression of our far seeing town site speculators for this upper country is about blowing into existence below the Mouth of the Umatilla on a Sand bar somewhere near what is known As grand Ronde Landing. We believe it is intended by the moving spirits in this Enterprise to Lay even Lew Iston in the Shade. Then we re act that Lewiston was so much below High water Mark in the Spring and is now so much above it in one sense of the word it seems As though there might be some method in this madness. Val Lula they argue can never be the Point for there is Nei ther soil not Timber there they must de Pend upon the Lovalla Walla Mills for their lumber so their Redwood from the remorseless Waves of the Columbia during the june freshest arid tribute to the Walla Walla Valley for All their beef Mut ton our and potatoes hence her Sacra mento pretentious Are ignored. So grand Ronde Landing must be the Point for they must have another Sacramento some where besides this place possesses some very be natural advantages some Cottonwood some stones considerable Sand and gravel and a few grass. And then this is the natural Landing Point for All the grand Rondo freight and for the Sake of convenience All the freight Des tined for the upper country must go through the grand Ronda Valley. It is Only about forty Miles from grand Ronde Valley Over to Valia Walla by the new Trail and Only about double that distance Over a very Little worse Road from grand Ronde Landing to grand Ronde Valley hence Walla Walla merchants will have All their Good packed through by this route in preference to having them shipped direct to Val Lula and on the other hand they can haul All their produce and supplies for the powder River country to Val Lula ship them to grand Ronde land ing and have them packed via the grand Ronde Valley into the mines and again. As the soil at the Landing does not prom ise a support for a Sacramento population Walla Walla producers can pack their produce Over the Trail to the grand Ronde Valley and thence across the mountains and Supply the people at the Landing. Very Lucid certainly but gentlemen if you must build Sacramento have some mercy leave us breathing room and dont smother us with the breath of count less thousands for we have a decided partiality for pure is a great place just now for the auction ering business on a moderate scale. For some time during the season the Only voice we were permit Ted to hear with its peculiarly musical going going gone Luj was that of our old Friend on the opposite Corner. Of course those who were located within the sound of his voice were extremely fortunate in hav ing the Dull hours of the Day enlivened by his felicitous harangues and were immensely delighted and Edi de. The Only misfortune was that the whole people of the town could t hear him. But at length an auctioneer with a pair of lungs like an of and voice quite As sonorous made his Way into our midst and in a Short time so in nicely did his vocal Powers transcend those of our modest old Friend the latter was completely overshadowed and retired we presume in disgust from the Ordinary eld of business. Another came and still an other both of whom possess in a. Remark Able degree the attribute of gab and have been enabled thus far to hold their own with the Vang Bisbing hero and extend to the entire town the privilege of hearing from Early morn till dewy eve the captivating words going going gone auctioneers Are a great institution and we would not part i tar them for the world. four Hundred Emi Grants who come with the intention of settling Here have arrived in this Valley during the week.

Those who saved their Stock did it at a Cost equal their value in procuring food for it. Consequently they cautiously calculate that the coming Winter May be similar to the last.
