It will husten the admisoiou of Washington as a »täte. It will deter W alia V\ alia and Columbia counties from seeking to go to Oregon, and re move the desire on the part of the peo ple of Oregon to possess these counties, choosing rather to have a sister fetate in Washington Territory. It will attract immigration to us with capital. It will give to us a degree of progress hitherto unknown among us aud stimulate the industries far more than to remain as we arc. Let us see to it then that cur repre sentative men w ho can have to do with this question arc of the true faith. 3 be Washington statue recently placed ou exhibition at l'hiladelphia looks as much bke Kidd, tho pirate, a& it looks liao Washiogtou, aud everyone Lut (ht artist sa' s to. NTATE OP WA9I1K5ICTOX. | [Troai the Puyton New«] The frionda of annexation to Oregon are oomitautly asserting that we Lava uo hO| j* of becoming a State for many years lo come and that for many year» past tbe question of forming a State constitution has been agit..tvd and al lowed to die a natural death. They forget to recognice the fact that it is only within the last three or four years that the tide of immigration has again «et forward to this eosat, aud that the inviting fields iu California aud Oregon are now occupied and that the tidal wave of immigration is just reaching this Tefritfry. What sre our prospecta to-day fur a speedy realization ut our delayed hopea'f Oor population La» bceu steadily increasing, aud the grow ing disposition of thousands aud thous ands of discontents on the other side of the lloeky Mountains to seek homes ou this coast and avail themselves of the healthlulucAs of our climate, will, with nothing more than the ordinary induce ment» heretofore offered gite us a large population in the uext four or file years. But, we can offer more than ordinary inducements to the thousands seeking uew homes* The developments of the last few years demonstrate that out co male and agricultural resources are equal to any, and superior to the tnoei of the favored localities on this coast, aud that the resources and xdVaoNgcs tu a commercial poiut of view thtft are being developed In the Sound country, offer greater inducements for the invest ment of capital with the certainty of large returns in a few years than any other portion of the coast* If the N. R railroad company get their extension hill through Couuress they will be compelled to commence work iu this portion of the Territory within une or two ;» ars* ]f they tail in getting an extenkion of time this winter their charter expires nest July, and the reserved laud» will he (brown open to settlement at the next »exsion of Congress thereafter* In either c«*ent inducements will he offered which will immediately bring a larger population into the eastern part of this Territory* It is therefore not very diffi cult to anticipate an iucrease of from eight to ten thousand in our voting pop ulation in the entire Territory with.n the next two or three year», which would be sufficient to secure our ad mission into the Union* Our Territor ial forms of government were created «imply as matters of expediency, and their proper administration with u proper reservation of power by the gen eral government aud the securing of coiiotitutional rights to the citizeos of the Territories ut the same time, has excreited the mtudi of our wLest states men. Both partie» iu Congress, tor some time past, have declared against any policy that would look to a perpet uation of those forms of government and will render »11 aid that can he con sistently ( iven to bring all the Terri tories in as states ut an early day Tho entire Pacifie coast is interested iu Washington Territory becoming a Stato as soon as possible. To day the true w elfare of the State of Oregon is more identified with the State question iu this Territory, than in acquiring the counties of Walla Walla and Columbia* lier interests are identical with ours, and our two Senators aud ouo Hepre aentativo could loan her more political influence in Congress, ten times over, than she would acquire by the acquis ition cf two cuuatitc from ce»Ternion*«
