ej I ppf " -4 gfte Stoat:) gtcrriati, ASTORIA-OKEWN: SUNDAY- JAN. 29, 1K82 j. r. UAi.ion.tx tiiuor. Beggin the Question. Maritinic WASHINGTON LETTER. From our Regular Correspondent. Washington, D. C, Jan. 1", 1852. Ik the New York Register of the 11th, we find the follewing: : - - "Our remarks, iu a previous is sue, condemning the excessive port chargps on Columbia river have excited the Oregon press. They cannot refute them, for there are'-too many witnesses to prove that extortionate charges exist. Our remarks were based upon such proofs. We have always defended Portland and the Oregon river, but we are careful of their interests most when we point out the ex istence there of evil practices and bad customs which can be re moved. Instead of being excited over the charges made, would it not bewell to endeavor to remove whatever abuses exist, and to de vise means' for preventing their recurrence. "We must warn ship ping againstJPortland, if the charg es at that port continue excessive." In thus talking, the Register but adds mendacity to incorrectne.-s of statement. In the first article, it made charpes that were based upon the alleged correctness of a letter written by British ship mas ters. In that letter the heaviest and only reasonable ground for complaint was in reference to the life service, something that the Columbia river controversy has nothing tn do with. It is said that the annual in come from the tithings demanded by the Mormon priesthood iionr their followers reaches 4,000,000. "It is thought by the Gentiles," says a correspondent of the Boston Herald, "and intimated by the saints themselves, that a portion of the tithing fund has been employ ed, and very effectively employed, in security .favorable legislation in the national Congress.' The -departed Brigham was wont to speak very contemptuously of Congress boasting that he cared nothing for it, because he could influence its votes with'-money whenever he deemed it desirable. And there is reason to think that his boast was not wholly idle." Congressman Cox, just back from Egypt, tells a funny story of being on the Nile when the boat men, who were devout Mahome tans, would lose their reckoning, and not knowing the points of compass, would not know in what direction Mecca lay, towards which they must turn their faces in prayer. Having a compass with him, Mr. Cox good-naturedly cor rected their bearings for them, and not unfrequently had the honor of running a Moslem prayer-meeting. They always 'passed, of course, a vote of thanks for the able manner in which he conducted- their re ligious services. Seattle lus had another spasm. The Chronicle gives air to a re port that the Vesuvius has been wrecked on the Columbia br; our delightful contemporary says: "All hands, report says, were savod," ana anas mat "many more im probable things could easily occur." Yea, verily: it is not even outside the limits of improbability that our contemporary would be fair enough to acknowledge that the report was a canard, and that it knew it to be so when it pave it publicity. The latest phase of gossip about cabinet appointments is the- state ment that Ex-Governor Booth of California, may get the Secretary ship of the Interior, instead of Sargent. The difference between the two men is -that Booth is as. eminently fit -for the position he would honor, as Sargent is unfit. To besuccesslul, our commerce must command, the service of heavy draught ships that can carry ,3000 to 3500 tons. Willamette Farmer. - Correct! What is needed is snob improvement of tho-bar as to giva-permanent 2(J'foot channel. The Mormon question thrusts itself upon Congress in a very pos itive manner, and like Bauquo's ghost it will not down. Doubt less a majority arc against the in famous institution of polygamy and willing to see its political power destroyed, yet somehow there is a disposition to handle the subject rather gingerly. I shall not be surprised if the present agitation ends in smoke and inaction, as all previous attempts have done, It takes something like an earth quake to inspire Congress to do its duty in dealing with any great evil which possesses power and in fluence. The plan proposed by Delegate Magiuuis of Montana, appears to be the least violent and effective of any suggested so far. His proposition is to let Congress divide the Territory of Utah, in corporating the western part witli the State of Nevada, the south eastern part with the State of Col orado, and the small northern part with Idaho and Wyoming. Con gress has abundant power to do tliis, and it is evident that when it is done the Mormon power will be broken. A part of the Mormon population will then be citizens of Nevada, and will be there only a minority of the whole State, and part become citizens of Colorado in a minority there. The small re mainder will form a part of Wyo ming or Idaho. The main portion of the Mormon population would thus become citizens of States which have already established constitutions and laws, to which the. Mormons would be amenable. It is held that such a division of Utah and distribution of its parts would not only be perfectly leghl an 1 proper, but would have the advantage that the new bounda ries would be natural Instead of artificial. The Wasatch Range which now runs through the cen tre of Utah, would then form the boundary line between the States of Colorado and Nevada. Is there any reason why '.Utah should not thus be dotted out of the map? The indications at the present time are that the most important result of Sneaker Kiefer's unfortu nate concoction of the committees will be a change in the system of their selection. It is not improb able, Ironi the present temper of the House, that Mr. Kiefer is the last Speaker who will have the exercise of so much power, or the onportunit' to abuse it, and that iu tiio futijre the committees will be made in much the same man ner they are in the Senate. It is even hinted that the committees for this Congress may yet be reor ganized; but this I think unlikely, though there is so- much feeling on both sides of the House that the movement could be carried if piop perly inaugurated. -Mr. Orth, who gave thcSpeakersuch a cutting re buke in open session, is not the only Republican who feels out raged or who recognizes, tho mo tives and the moving spirit of the whole scheme. Mr. Waite, of Connecticut, is another old and prominent Republican 'member who has taken decided excepions to the course of the Speaker and written a letter declining to servo under the circumstances. There are curses loud and deep all along tho line. The arrangement of Committees is a matter entirely within control of the House, and it is only by usage and courtesy that the- Speaker has been hereto fore given that authority. When ever a majority of tho member so determine, it is in the province of the House to undo his work and take the-matter into their own hands. If such action were to be taken now Mr. Kiefer could not complajn. " Tliis-morning I saw a letter from the father of Clara Louise Kellosg, in answer to a letter of inquiry, addressed to him by Clara Louise's uncle, who .live in this city, as to the'tnithfulness of tho rumor that is widespread and circumstantially dilated on throughout the country, to the effect that the popular can- tatrico is soon to marry a Mr. Whitney. Suffice it to say that the letter was by no means a con firmation of tho rumor. I think Clara Louise will continue to sing and popularize English opera for somu time yet, 'beforo she Stc'ps her pretty foot off the lyric stage and retires to sing soft lullabies in the quiet realms of sweet domes ticity, notwithstanding the amount of interesting advertising she is getting this winter over her al leged, intention to set the vvedding bells a ringing. By the way, tho Hon. Wra. Pitt Kellogg, Louisi ana's staunch Republican Senator, is of the Ne"w England Kellogg family, although he has been West all his life, and commanded a reg iment of Illinois cavalry during the war for the Union. It is hoped that by the time this letter is in print the Guiteau trial will be ended and the assassin un der sentence of death. The clos ing arguments are now in progress, and Guiteau himself has prepared a speech which ho proposes to de liver to the jurv. He wants the last say and pretends to believe that his address will settle tha matter in his faver. Grave doubts are expressed, however, whether he will deliver it after all, even if permitted by the court. Hereto fore he has prepared various speeches, and when the time came, and he was told to stand up and deliver what he had to say, he de clared that he had nothing to offer It is doubted whether he has the moral courage to face the jury. He is a very timid and cowardly fellow, in spite of his Muster when he is in his Feat, and he never rises, but drops into his chair as he is brought in, and stays there till he goes out again. He has never voluntarily risen in court since the day Bill Jones shot at him. , In an interview at the jail tho other day with Mr. Reed, one of his counsel, the assassin pro posed in all seriousness that after the jury had acquitted him he. sljnuld take the lecture-field. "He declares that in a year he would have $50,000, and would pay his counsel handsomely. Mr. Reed said: "Supposo now that the jury should find you guilty, and the judge sentence you to be executed Have you thought of that?" Gui teau said he had not, but the Lord would be with him; the Lord would go right up on the gallows and stand beside him through it all. " Spot. MISCELLANEOUS. A.
