A Representative American. --Mr. Nesmith, one of the newly-elected Senators from Oregon, is a native of the State of Maine, and is now about forty-five years of age. He was educated in a carpenter's shop, and followed the business until he became of age, when he emigrated to the west, and finding himself one day out of money, and being unable to get employment at his trade, enlisted in the army. He served five years on the western frontier, in Dodge's Regiment of Dragoons. At the expiration of his term of service, he started overland for Oregon, with the emigration of 1843, and arrived in Oregon city in the fall of that year. When the provisional Government was organized in 1844, Nesmith was elected one of the Territorial Judges. He went to California in the summer of 1848, with many other Oregonians, worked for some months at mining, on Feather River, and returned to Oregon the next Spring. He was afterwards Superintendent of Indian Affairs for Oregon, but was removed.

Decision against the Government in the case of the Indian trust bonds, --In the United States District Court for the Southern district of New York, on Saturday last, Judge Smalley delivered an oral opinion in the case of the United States against Goddard Bailey, and the Bank of the Republic and others.--The Government in this case sought to compel the defendants to deliver such of the stolen bonds as they might have in their possession. The parties who were thus proceeded against was the Bank of the Republic; Clark, Dodge & Co.; Thompson Brothers, and Richard Schell. The Judge decided that the bonds in question were negotiable, and were negotiated in the regular course of business. All parties who had received them in good faith, and without notice of their abstraction, were bona fide holders, and could not be called upon to deliver them up except in due course of redemption. The temporary injunctions obtained by the Government were therefore all vacated.

Rumors, &c., in Baltimore. Baltimore, July 11. --It is again rumored here that Gen. Patterson's entire army has been annihilated. The troops quartered in the city are apparently preparing to leave. Mr. Dodge, a Unionist, has been appointed City Marshal. Major Twiller's dispatches create intense curiosity. It appears they demanded the virtual surrender of Washington. [We don't know who Major Twiller is, Col. Taylor went to Washington with dispatches. Probably the Northern public has been "sold" as to the nature of the dispatches.--Eds.]
