' III: ( Dll li I I.oilli. Tito press of this State (and particularly the wliijr press) are full of speculation as to the prohable course of the Governor on the subject of tlic canal. The whig press mainly seem to wish the failure of that measure, so that they may have . something fur which to cen sure the democratic parly. And next to that, they hope if it should succeed at al!,i it may be clogged witli some odious pro visions nhout which they can make a great blow for political effect. As for ourselves we have not sufficient information in our possession upon which to form a correct opinion, and we learn that the Governor himself has not yet been furnished with such full reports on the subject as will enable him to judge properly of the ultimate result of the nc goeiation of our commissioners. The friends of ihe canal, however, may remain satisfied that if any tiling can be done according to law for tlic bent fit of the canal Governor Ford is just the man to do it : While all others may rest assu red that the provisions of law on the sub ject will he duly adhered to. The Alton I clegraph, the JournI, and some other whig presses, are endeavoring lo array party feeling upon the canal ques tion j nnd wish to profit tidier by the success or failure of the measure. In this there is such a want of patriotism, mil such a disposition to sport w ith the great interests of the State, as we are happy to sec shocks many of the whigs themselves. In conversing with the Governor we learn from him that he is not disposed to consider the canal as a party measure ; that, whatever action he may take on it, he knows he must not only expect t,cn sure hut fierce denunciation. There he wishes it to lest ; not upon the democrat ic party, but upon himself. As he denies lhat the canal is or ought to be a party measure, nnd as he also .disclaims acting for the party in whatever he may be called on to do, so he desires lhat what ever censure may grow out of his pro ceedings, may be visited on himself alono. Slate Register. Destructive J'Hre. On the evening of the 8tlu ull., ihe Penitentiary of Milledgn ville, Ga., was discovered to be in flames. The fire originated in the paint, and spread rapidly till it consumed the work shop, steam-engine house, and all the out buildings, except the cells and keeper's office. There were 149 prisoners in the cells, who heard the cry of fire and saw the light. When tho walls of tho cells became healed, they set up a horrible cry for liberation, till the doors where opened, and lliey were let out. They were im mediately placed under a strong guard, but umid tho confusion of the moment ono escaped. Tho lire attacked the buil ding wherein ore the cells, several times, but was os often extinguished, though it was with great diftieuly that thai building was saved. The loss is between $30,000 and 00,000. " From the Territorial (iazeltc. 'I lie Oregon Ailrrnmrrr. We liove another letter from our lale fel low citizen, M. M.

Willi ihe exception of one man who had his arm broke hy an accidental discharge from a gun while pursuing a Unffalii, all are well. Our roads have been good be yond expectation, particularly for the last six hundred miles; and I do not believe a road equally good and of tho same length can br procured in the Slates. Our rattle and vafjgon.i, so far, stand the trip well; Indeed the cattle Sre fattening gen erally. Many of the men are working cows ; I myself have two yoke, and find them better titan oxen. There is no heavy pulling wiiMi requires large oxen, and cows arc decidedly faster and conse quently better. You have, too, their milk at night; nnd in Oregon, I am in formed, a good c.7iv is worth as much an a yoke of rattle.

The weather has been cool without rain for the last month. Our roads being up rialte river, in the bottom, our cattle could not suffer for water except at short intervals, when we left the river for part of a day. -This, however, we done but seldom, as that river from the point at which we 3tnick il to this place about 100 milcj has scarce!; any tributaries. None of our ttock has been stolen since leaving the Kansas river. V'e are novr in the midst of the fornix and Cheyenne Indians, where it will he necessary to keep up a more vigilant watch. At this place wo found a few Spaniard's with a small cargo of flour, Sec. packed on inulr9 from Towcc, in the Spanish province, about -iCO miles distant.
