victory be acheived by public opinion.

The Pittsburg Post gives the following
reasons why Thursday
. is invariably selected
"A correspondent asks us, "Why is it that
Thanksgiving Day is always made to come
on Thßrsday'l It has been so in former years
and this year although the Governors of some
of the States fix on different days of the
month they all agree on the 'same day of the
week." A question is started that has never
been discussed, at least to our knowledge;
hence any suggestions we make must be trt•
ken for what they are worth. The custom of
annual Thanksgiving arose, we believe,
among the Puritans of New England. As
they were a Christian people, about, to estab
lish a Christian festival, we may reasonable
supposb they took the history of Christianity
for a precedent. if any one. will read over
the XXVI chapter of Mathew he will see
why they considered Thursday the appropri
ate .day for this purpose. The time of tire
Jewish Passover depended on the state of the
moon, and as astronomy was then but little
cultivated it could not always be fixed with
accuracy. Hence it is a disputed point
whether our Saviour ate the Passover the
year of the Crusifixion or not. It is certain,
however, that o-i the Thursday evening-before,
they ate that memorable supper at which the
Sacrament of the Eucharist was instituted.—
Although the Passover in that year was in
volved in philological, chronologinal and as
tronomical difficulties, the time of this sup
per can be easily fixed in several ways : Ist.
The reason given why the lymes of those who
were crucified should be broken and their
bodies taken down, was that the next day
was the Sabbath—that is, our Saturday. The
Crucifixion, therefore, occured on Friday, and
the supper being the evening before was on
Thursday. or the Jewish F'ciday, since their
day began at sundown instead of midnight.
It is, we suppose, because the Lord's Supper_
was eaten on Thursday that our stern and God
fearing-431d Puritan fathers fixed upon that
day for Thanksgiving, and the custom has
since become a permanent one.
In pursuance of notice, the schOol direc
tors, teachers, and quite a large number of
the citizens of Franklin township, assem
bled at the Public School House, in Mechan
icsville on Saturday evening the 24th of
vember. The meeting was called to order,
by Mr. Barr, the County Superintendent.—
On motion, Maj. John Zentmyre, President
of the Board of School Directors of Franklin
District, was elected chairman, and H. T.
The meeting was opened with prayer, by
the Rev. E. W. Kirby.
By request of the chairman, Mr. Barr sta
ted the object of the meeting, and addressed
the audience in a speech somewhat lengthy,
but nevertheless interesting and instructive,
upon the subject of "Common School Edu
cation." He spoke with much force of the
origin, progress, and ultimate perfection, of
our common schools, and urged the necessi
ty of having them graded wherever practica
ble. He spoke of the advantages of good
common schools, and urged upon all the ne
cessity, of taking greater interest in their
Rev. E. W. Kirby made a brief, but very
appropriate address. He portrayed the great
good resulting from a proper use of the means
placed at our disposal, and urged that all
should give. cheerfully and bountifully of
their abundance, for thesupport of Common
Schools. He pointed out the advantages de
rived by the community, from the education
and proper training of youth.
Mr. Barr stated to the meeting the duties
of his office, and gave the reason, why he
was unable to discharge those duties. He
also stated, that he was under the necessity of
leaving, but hoped that the meeting would be
continued till a later hour.
The propriety of raising the salary of the
County Superintendent, was then introduced
by Mr. J. A. Pollock, who urged strongly the
necessity of something being done immedi
ately, in order to enable the superintendent,
to devote his time exclusively to the interest
of the schools. H: T. White spoke of the
suicidal policy the School Directors were pur
suing, by permitting the sallary of the Su
perintendent to remain so - low, as to pre
elude the possibility of realizing one half its
benefits. He showed that in other counties
where a reasonable compensation was allow
ed, the people were reaping a sufficient re
ward, and are appreciating the late school
J. Wareham Mattern, Esq., said that educa
tion was power, and that so long as we con
tinued to improve our means of education,
and grow in knowledge, just so long would
we, as a nation, continue to grow in power
and national prosperity, and whenever the
people ceased to appreciate, and countenance
popular education, just so soon will the A
merican flag, with her stars and stripes, cease
to wave in. triumph upon Republican soil.—
Remarks Were also made, by Messrs. Conrad,
Mcllvain, G. W. Mattern and Bice.
On- motion, the following resolutions were
Whereas, We, as Scool Directors, teachers
and citizens, believe that the County Superin
tendency is a great auxiliary to the common
school system; and being convinced that the
salary of our County Superintendent, is in
adequate to enable him to discharge its duties,
according to the injunctions of the law,
Resolved, That we will lend our aid to
have his salary sufficiently augmented, so
that he can fully comply with the require=
ments of the law, and devote his time exclu
sively to the common schools.
Resolved, That we hold a District Educa
tional Meeting, at this place sometime in
January next, and that Messrs. J. Zentmyre,
J. A. Pollock and H. T. White, be appointed

Indian War in Oregon
FULL PARTICULARS OF MAJOR HALLER'S
EXPEDITION.—We have just received from
an officer connected with Major Haller's com•
mand, the following particulars of the cam
It will be seen that Major Haller and the
officers and soldiers under his command have
fought bravely, and endured hardships and
privations, such as galient men and true men
and true soldiers only endure when fighting
in their country's service.
"Major Haller's command entered the Sim -
coo-a valley and were fifty-six miles from the
Dalles before they saw an "Indian. The
whar-whoop, in reply to their chief, was the
first intimation of a large number, for most of
them were concealed in the brush. The ac
tion commenced abodi three o'clock, P. M.,
on Saturday, and before sundown the enemy
was driven out of the brush, and the field
was in our possession. Our loss was one
killed, two mortally woundeC, two severely
wounded, and three slightly—total loss ei.ht.
While the action was going on the Indians
poured in from the plain in view in great
numbers, and fairly surrounded our position.
There were, at sundown, six or, seven hun
dred Indians in the field.
Notwithstanding this number, the troops
advanced toward the north, bound for the
last session of congress, relative to the Pen-
Yak irna mission, ,but on . crossing some hights,
they heard the Indians talking and their hor
ses neighing, and being too dark to see before
them, they halted for fear of an ambush, but
posted the soldiers for a night attack, and
every man lay on his arms all
° night. Two
Indians rode into our camp, mistaking it for,
their own, and • discovering the mistake, at
tempted to get away.; as their heads rose a
bove the brow of the hill, their long hair be
trayed them, and a fire brought down one of
-Early in the morning, the enemy closed in
around us and commenced firing. As they
closed on us, they were driven off with the
bayonet, and the whole force was kept at
bay; although, during, the day, squadron af
ter squadron of the Indians came over the
hills on the north, and poured into the plain
On. Sunday evening the Indians had ap
parent:y doubled their numbers—say 1400. or
1500. The men had fought them all the day
without water or wood to cook with ; and had
scarcely touched food. Their sufferings and
fatigue could not be endured much longer,
and something had to be done. The enemy
saw our need of water and grass, and about
sundown seemed to concentrate on the bluffs
-overlooking the water. A night march Was
resolved upon as the safest means of getting
beyond the mountains, on the road to the
Dalles, so as to be in communication with the
with'the troops to be called for. It was ex
pected to be a night attack from the Indians,
as they held the brush; so every man availa
ble was marched 'on foot to engage the ene
my. - •
The horses and " pack mules, excepting those
with the sick; the munition, &c., were let
run loose, and not having eaten fur so long:, a
time, were determined to feed titerrfselves.—
Many of these went into the brush to feed,
k rid in the darkness could not be found. The
troops, by a worthless guide, were led off the
trail, and in consequence, the rear g uard who
kept the trail became detached. At, 2 o'clock,
A. M., Major Halter's party had gained a
grove of fine timber on the mountains, and
here built two fires, as signals to those in the
valley to find them. The men, almost ready
to die of fatigue, lay down to rest until day
"The Indians understood the fires, and
many hastened through the darkness, guided
by the light of these signals, 'to our rear. At
daylight we saw the plain full of Iniians
charging For us. We mustered our men, and
found only about forty of them available to
guard the wounded and oppose the Indians in
our retreat. We had not gone far when they
commenced their assault and a running fight
took place for six or eight miles, which re
flected great credit on the officers and men,
as only two men were wounded, although
fairly surrounded by the Indians. The troops
then selected a spot for defence ; and during
the rest of Monday kept off the Indians.—
They fired the prairies to burn us out,
and lastly fired the woods all around us. At
night we again advanced, and were not after-
"In the retreat. the howitzer carriages broke
down, and it had' to be abandoned, but the
piece was carried on until the mule was
ready to break down, when coming to some
brush, we catched it.
"The men had marched all day on Satur
day, fought,' and then were on the alert all
night, fought all of next day, marched next
night until two o'clock, and at daylight again
marched and fought, then defended camp un
til sunset. Veteran so!diers could not have
done more. Next day the command met
the rear guard, who. had not seen an Indian, the
fires of Sunday night having drawn all the war
riors after that party on the summit of the
mountain. Every man, except four of the
dead, were brought back to the Dalles. The
total loss was five killed and seventeen woun
ded—over one-fifth of the command.
MOVEMENTS OF THE INDIANS.—A. corres
pondent, writing to the Times, from the Dal
les, October 15th, says:—We have had noth
ing authentic from the Yak imas, since Major
Haller's return, more than the Indians' report
of the battle. They report the whites only
to have killed three Indians and wounded
one. The second chief of the war killed—a
Pauloose Indian. There is no doubt but they
are determined to fight. They are gaining
strength every day--I think their numbers
have increased to about 2000. Indians are
leaving this place almost every day to join
the Yakimas. Major Rains moves his forces
from this place to-day, to the north side of
the Columbia, ten miles below this place.—
He is going to erect a military fort and estab
lish a general depot there.
