BETTER FROM LEWISTON. Lewiston, January 2, 1865. Editor World: As a reader of the first Democratic journal published upon the soil of Idaho, allow me to congratulate yon upon the many evidences apparent of your success. During the recent session of the Legislature, I have looked in vain for some pen whose facile movements should portray to their constituents, through your columns, tbe labors of their delegation, and their firm adherence to the doctrines taught by Jefferson, and the early founders of the Republic. Legislators, like actors, need the approval of the public, in order to crown their effort? with final success. LEGISLATIVE—A GOOD JOKE. The first of the session passed smoothly along, wlflT the exceptiaa or an occasional ripple upon the surface the of political puddle, near its close. Upon the introduction of the ^ Bounty bill, (framed in the ßanctum of his Excellency, and, therefore, his pet,) party lines were drawn, and woe be to the waver ing. The mandate of his Highness had gone forth, that the pretext for robbing the hardy pioneers of Idaho should receive the sanction of the Legislature ; that it might be legiti mately done under statute law. The friends of the bill were disinclined to give its pro visions a very extensive airing,—choosing, rather, to pass the matter through without attracting much attention. At length it became understood that, did they succeed easily in the Council, the House was not disposed to allow so gross an outrage upon the people of this Territory to be perpetrated with impunity. Although so modified as to seem not wholly impracticable on its face, still the tax levied under its provisions solely for a "bunkum" record to lay before Father Abraham—amounted to $45,000. The first proposition called lor $144,000, which was much nearer the actual amount needed. Huge " bunkum " speeches from the Repub licau members (who need re-election to keep their seats) were made, lauding the Adminis tration to the skies, and denouncing all who refused to fall down and worship the image that Caleb of " Lyonsdale " had set up, that lor the want of a faithful reporter for your journal, will be lost to their constituents forever. Praise of worthy mefit is a delight ful theme; when undeserved, however, it becomes the most withering sarcasm. There fore, in claiming tljat "we owe this to our government at home, from the fact that she has ever extended her protecting hand over us,"—and this claim set up in tbe face of the fact that, on the contrary, we have so far not only paid all the usual taxes levied by our government upon bid settled States,—but we fbave also supported, at our o.wn expense, and from an almost empty treasury, all the dis reputable Federal officers sent here. Does our government need these troops ? and what for ? If we have to support (in addition to the officers we have no voice in electing) standing army, let the people have some voice in the matter. Yoiir correspondent listened attentively to the arguments,—or rather "bunkum," of the Republicans in both Houses, and it was also generally observed that they left the merit of the bill untouched Several good third rate Fourth-of-July ora tions were had over it, and finally the funeral 6ermon was duly preached over it, and its companion—the Militia bill, by the Reverend member, in the House, from Idaho. Thus 10 xvv foil as mad a scheme, and as destructive to the best interests of the Territory, as ever entered the brain of a fanatic. The last day of the session at length came, and with it a rather rich joke not wholly without its lesson. During the passing of party measures through the Council, of course the Democracy were in the minority. This enabled the Republicans to choke off discus sion frequen'.ly, without authority of law, or the rules of " Jefferson's Manual." Upon several occasions this was done with impuni ty, and the Chair, sustained by a majority, of course, and at the expense of the minority. However, an opportunity occurred for a little sport, which had been concocted in the House, by going into Joint Convention, and a reso lution was passed through both Houses to that effect.* Here was an opportunity to get justice, as we would have a clear working majority. A series of resolutions reviewing the conduct of Federal officers, who had been sent amongst us, were hastily drawn up, and at an opportune moment offered by Mr. Fenn of the Council, from Idaho. In a moment the countenances of tbe Opposition members changed from the self-satisfied smile of tri umph won by them, for the last three weeks, to the most blank look of surprise. The reader can better imagine the ludicrous spectacle presented if, in his schoolboy days, he ha3 seen a large boy domineer, tyrannize over, aad tantalize a smaller one before the whole school until, by some unforeseen in cident, he comes suddenly in contact with his victim and finds himself completely in his power. As might be expected from former conduct, tbe " big boy " ran away. Thus it proved with the Council majority—they "bolted" from the house, disgracefully leav ing the field, and refusing to accept an equal show and a fair fight—saluted with shouts of laughter from the lobby as they went. This is Republican honor and sound Republican inciple?. THE CAPITAL, AND OTHER QUESTIONS. The Capital question is becoming rather a vexed one to everybody. Your correspondent not being in the ring, can give but little infor mation with regard to it. Blackstone seems to have been consulted in the matter and, if correctly interpreted by some of the ' Solons,' I fear they will decide the last Assembly a bogus body sure enough. This will sadly in terfere with the operation of many healthy laws passed during the last session. The different applicants for tbe office of Territorial Auditor and Territorial Treasurer, will, also materially retard the business in those offices. I havejust learned that Dr. M A. Kelly, who was elected Territorial Treas urer, has his bonds ready and will apply for a certificate ; also, that Dr. E. Smith, appoin ted by the Governor and Legislative Council is preparing his;—meantime, writs y of in* junction are being served on D. S. Kenyon forbidding him deliverfng over to either any books, records, or papers, belonging to said office,—to which he also puts in a claim that he was duly appointed to for the term pre scribed by the statute, viz. : two years. These numerous questions will hardly be decided until near the expiration of the term claimed by Kenyon. Thus the matter stands. Pallas. Democratic Central Committee, Ada Co. held at Boise City, Ada county, I. T., Janua ry 30th, 1865, for the purpose of appointing a Democratic Central Committee : On motion of Mr. Duvall, Dr. J. S. Mcl teeney was nominated and elected to tbe Chair. On motion of Mr. Short, Wm. A. Yates was nominated and elected Secretary of the meeting. Mr. Short moved to proceed to elect mem bers—nominated Mr. Chas. Warren. Mr. Duvall moved an amendment, as follows —The Chair to appoint a Committee of five, who shall appoint the said County Commit tee. Voted down. Mr. Warren nominated and elected. Mr. Buckley nominated Daniel Stewart elected. Mr. Agnew nominated B. C. Riggs—elected. On motion of Mr. Buckiey, That the Sec retary be requested to forward a copy of pro ceedings to the Idaho World for publication. Carried unanimously. Mr. Duvall moved an adjournment. Carried. J. S.
