It is by the promulgation of sound morals in the community, and more especially by the training and instruction of the young, that wo man performs her part towards the preserva tion of a free government. It is generally ad mitted that public liberty, the perpetuity of a free constitution, rests on the virtue and intel ligence of the community which enjoys it. How is that virtue to be inspired and how is that intelligence to be communicated ? Bonaparte once asked Madame de Staël in what manner he could best promote the happiness of France? Her reply is full of political wisdom. She said, Instruct the mothers of the French people." Mothers are. indeed, the affectionate and et fective teachers of the human race. The moth er begins her process of training with the iu fant in her arms. It is she who directs, so to speak, its mental and spiritual pulsations. She conducts it along the impressible years of childhood and youth, and hopes to deliver it to the rough contests aud tumultuous scenes of life, armed by those good principles which her child has received from maternal care and love If we draw within the circle of our contem plation the mothers of a civilized nation, what do wo see ? We behold so many artificers working not on frail and perishable matter, but on the immortal mind, moulding and fash ioning beings who are to exist forever. We applaud the artist whose skill and genius pre sent the mimic-man upon the cauvass ; we ad mire and celebrate the sculptor who works out that same image in enduring marble ; but how insignificant are the achievements, though the highest and fairest in all the departments pf art in comparison with the great vocation of human mothers ? They work not upon the canvas that shall fail, or the marble that shall crumble into dust, but upon mind, upon spirit, which is to last forever, and which is to bear, forever, tor good or evil throughout its dura tion. the impress of a mother's plastic hand. Our security tor the duration of the free in stitutions which bless our country, depends upon the habits of virtue and the prevalence of knowledge and of education. Knowledge does not comprise all which is contained in the larger term of education. The feelings are to be disciplined ; the passions are to be restrain ed ; true and worthy motives are to be inspir ed ; a pure morality inculcated under all cir cumstances. AH this is comprised in educa tion. Mothers who are faithful to this great duty will tell their children that neither in po litical nor in any other concerns of life, can man ever withdraw himself from the perpetual obligations of conscience and of duty ; that in every act, whether public or private, he incurs a just responsibility ; and that in no condition is be warranted in trifling with imporUnt - * rights and obligations. They will impress up- on their children the truth that the exercise of the elective franchise is a social duty of as soieinu a nature as man can be called to per- form ; that a man may not innuceutly trifle with his vote ; that every free elector is a trus- tee, as well for others as himself; anq that every man and every measure he supporte, has an important bearing on the interests of others as well as his own. It is the inculcation of high and pure morals, such as these, that, iu. a free republic, woman performs her sacred duty, and fulfils her destiny. - From Umatilla. —The only number of the Presß we have seen for weeks was handed to us by Wells, Fargo & Co.'s Agent here on Thursday. It is last Saturday's issue, and from it we glean the following news : Business is very dull at Umatilla. A num ber of packers are there anxious to sell their mules. Mr. H. Woodworth has the contract to car ry a weekly mail, which may be increased to tri-weekly service, between Umatilla and Union, tria Marshall and LaGrande. The stage road between the Dalles and Umatilla is being very much improved. L.eut Force, with some 8th U. S. Cavalry has started after Indians. He is to report to Gen. Crook at Snake river. Ward, the noted wit and stage driver, walked off a balcony in Umatilla while asleep and se verely hurt his head and shoulders. The old wag said that he bad driven stage for many years, but never had made better time than while going that twenty feet. The Methodists were holding a Camp Meet ing near Walla Walla, in Umatilla county A grand 4th of July celebration was adver tised to come off on Railey's ranch, on Uma tilla river, near the Twelve Mile House —--- Buncombe. —In a response to a call from the crowd, during the President's visit to P»os ton last month. Secretary Seward, who accom panied him, got off the following piece of bun combe glory : "Give ine assurance that for twenty, thirty, forty years there shall not again be unlawful resist ance by any armed force against the President, bear ing the*authority of the United States, and I will give you a contract for the whole of the American conti nent and the control of the world." Both the Presi dent and Seward were vigorously applauded The people still remember Seward's " thirty sixty, ninety days," in which the South was to be subdued. His prophecies are too wild. A Welcome. —On the occasion of President Johnson's visit to Boston, lately, Gov. Bullock of Massachusetts, thus addressed him in a wel coming speech : " Our citizens desire to manifest in every possible manner, their respect for those representing the National American Union. Many of your predeces sors have visited New England from time to time. Your visit, like theirs, excites our devotion to the union of these States, and respect for those who, m official position represent the Government ol the whole country. 1 trust you will prolong your stay in Massachusetts sufficiently to enable its citizens to manifest their high regard for your office, and for you personally.'* On Sunday, June 16th, Arch-Bishop Blan chet, of Oregon, confirmed twelve converts to the Catholic Church, in Salem. PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD COUNTY COMMISSIONERS. On Monday, July 1st. the Board of County Commissioners held a regular meeting for the transaction of county business ; present, J. M. Cannady, President of the Board, and A. D. Saunders ; Henri F. Sayrs, Clerk. A number of accounts were allowed* and warrants drawn for the same..

James Carr was appointed Justice of tho Peace for Gold Hill precinct. J. H. King was appointed Justice of the Peace for Buena Vista Bar. The license of the toll road from Centerville to Pioneer City was transferred to Mr, Loge. The joint report of the Auditor and Treasu rer was - submitted, approved and placed ou file. The Board then proceeded to the Treasur er's office to examine and count the moneys in the County Treasury, as required of them by law. After a full and careful examination of the Treasurer's department and duly counting the moneys, they found the same to be correct in every respect, and in accordance with joint statement of Auditor and Treasurer on file. Jonas W. Brown was appointed Justice of the Peace in place of K. B. Snelling, resigned.

The Clerk was also direoted to offer for seal- ed proposals for 100 cords of seasoned wood for county purposes. H. F. Sayrs, Clefk. t - » ♦ ♦ ------ - New York, June 28-.— The grand Masonic ovation, to aid destitute Southern brethren, was a splendid success. The citizens of Philadelphia are preparing for a grand reception of ibe President on hi* return trip from Boston. Gov. English, of Connecticut, and a great eoneourso in New Haven, welcomed the Pres dent. In the Maine Radical Convention, Hannibal Hamlin made a bitter speech against the Pres ident, and urged impeachments. Holt and Stanton have got Weichman, the perjured witness against Mrs. Surratt* to swear against John H. Surratt. He appears to swear to whatever they tell him. —- The black Douglas (Fred.) utters a piercing complaint that the owners of the Huff hotel, in Wiaona, Minn , declined to accommodate him. dnring his recent visit to that Radical place. He thinks the landlord must be a disloyal per son, which is probable; considering that Mr. Huff, the owner, was one ot the Radical candi date's for United States Senator in Minnesota, a few years ago. _—- - »>»«•« — - In explanation of the fact that a team can draw a ton of hay easier than the same weight of wood, coal or iron, on the same wugon, over the same road, Prof Tilman says the only ex planation that can be given is that the hay does not rest as iron does, a dead weight apou the axles. If the hay was pressed into com pact bales it would not ride easier than wood, and not much easier than iron. The loose hay acts in the same way that springs under a wagon would act. The elasticity buoys up and floats tue load over obstructions. —- Fred. Douglas was beaten in the Union Conven tion in Monroe county, New York, for delegate to tho Constitutional Convention, hy Hon. Freeman Clarke. The vote stood, Clarke 86, Douglas 44. The United States of Massachusetts, by her chief, Sumner, will have a Congressional and Military w reconstruction" ordered in Monroe county, New York. It is treason to prefer a white man to a negro. - The Galveston News says : A smart negro was asked a few days ago, what he thought of the cotton tax : " It's unconstitutional, sar, and anuder tax is more unconstitutional, sar ; do whisky tax, sar ; I used to git a gallon for two bits, sar, and I has now to give two dollars, ou account of dem Northern taxes. Pfce gwiue to help blow era up, sar ; I is 1"
