Oheqo.n Politics and Politicians.
In a late number of the Sacramento Union
we find a lengthy and rather graphic let
ter from a California!) at Salem, dated Au
gust 17th, devoted to a description of Or
egon, ita politics, Ac. Tin letter is signed
" P. J. M.," whom we suspect to bo Patrick
J. Malone, Eq., formerly a resident of this
Territory, a very prominent and influential
member of the Democratic party, and the
most talented man in the confidence of the
"Clique." It will bo seen from tho ex
tract which we give below that he dues not
entertain tho most elevated opinion of the
Democratic politicians of Oregon, partic
ularly of the junto known as lha "Salem
Clique," and depicts them in colors which
will be nt once recognized ns lifoliko by
those who have seen them as they are,
as undoubtedly Mr. Malona has. The
fact is, the clique, through the agency of
tho editor of Dr. Cznpkay's organ nt Sa
lorn, attempted lo make a tool of Mr. Ma
lone to do their dirty woik, (by them he
was fumiliarly culled "Put,") but he
"couldn't stand the conditions" took tho
"studs" and obstinately refused to move
at their bidding any longer. Ilenco the
estrangement between him and Cznpkay's
editor, and the consequent stoppage of tho
"supplies" and in a country where there
"aro but two occupations farming and
politics" ho lind to " choose the plow and
:qiad, or leave the country"; and having
no notion of farming being unused to tho
business he choso tho latter nltornntive,
atid left Oregon in uncontrollable flisgust,
as many other " talented nnd useful men
bave been obliged to do from the same
cause." Mere is awlmt he thinks of Oro-gon-democratio
"Salem is inconsidrrablo in point of
numbers, but territorially omnipotent in
point of political power. It ia to Oregon
what Rome is to Christendom the point
from which emannta mandate that are felt
to I lie outward rim of its jurisdiction.
Wo betide the unfortunate, wight, having
political aspirations, who dares to set up
Lis will in opposition to the silliest whim
of the "Salem Clique." lie is politically
dead. The result of this polilical despot
ism In a country where ihere are but two
pursuits farming ami office-hunting may
be easily imagined. To u naturally inde
pendent mind, it is a condition of tilings
little better than the "knout.' It makes
cowards of men of gonitis, nnd prostitutes
talent to the mean uses of little men, who
who have no talent of their own. In Or
egon, this despotism is felt with double
force, for hero are none of tho thousand
channels through which turn ambitious of
distinction may gain eminence, nsido from
tho dirty, thorny path of politics. There
are but two occupations in Oregon farm
ing and politics. "The Salcin Clique,"
having "Jo. Lane" al their finger etuis,
control Oregon s share e-f tha rederal pa!
ronaze : hence, whoever ia too independ
ntly constituted to pay court lo the little
great men of the cliquo, who sit chafing in
their chairs, impatient of their daily dos
of honeyed praises, bus to choose the plow
and spade, or leave the country, as many
talented anil netful men have been obliged
to do already from the same cause. The
recipients of the pap, however, do not al
ways have a pleasant lime of it, for they
are constantly annoyed by the growl of
thee who stand ready to jump in and
twakb nwuiliftil of tha sporU ,io this
respect, Oregon politicians might filly be
Compared lo a caravan of wild animals, in
the midst of which was thrown a fw
pounds of flc.h, each scrambling fur the
prize the unsuccessful on the backs of
the successful, trying to snatch the bone."
It will be observed how Irreverently he
speaks of the god of black democracy In
Oregon "Jo Lane," with quotntion
maiks as thouuh lie wore writing of
some plaster automaton, which could bo
made lo assumo at will any snaps lis
moulders might desire I Really, M r. Ma
lono will have to be read out of "our par-
ly" at the next mealing r.f the Territorial
convention, lie can effectually block that
game, however, by pleading to the juris
diction, unless the convention should, like
necessity, " know nu law," and throw the
plea out of court.
We will make another extract from Ma-
lono'a Icttor, showing that ho is not sound
on tho " goose," besides containing a de
scription of the class of bipeds who desire
the introduction of slavery into Oregon :
"To mv mind the result is not doubtful.
Oregon will decide largely in favor of a
free State, I hero Is but one class oi men
who dosiro slavery in Oregon the class
who have hud the least experience of it in
the Stolen. Tboso who know it best aro
its most determined opponents here. The
men who desire its introduction into Ore

Missouri, or somo other slave Slulo, nnd
who, hayng como to Oregon at an early
day, got lliuir section of land under tho do
nation law. Tboy are generally too lazy to
cultivate their own lands, and will not sell
out at a reasonable price to those who
would. They think from their limited ex
perience (hat it would be a fine thing to
have "niggers" to raiso wheat, that they
might be ablo to pay freights and compete
with your farmers in the California mar.
kcts. Those who came later to Oregon
and got only 100 or 320 acres of land,
generally sncuking. do not desire slavery
and they nro the most numerous class, as
the ballot box will show. To this latter
class may be added tho numbers who look
upon sluvery as a moral leprosy, to be
avoided at nny sacrifice. I find there is
much less fear entertained of Uregon be
coming a slave State within her borders,

A Hint to Oregon Siiiiteks A gen
tleman in thijj city who has recently re
ceived a small shipment of provisions
from Oregon, calls our attention to tho
fact that articles of that kind which arrive
in vessels thnt also bring a lumber freight,
aro Invariably tainted by tho odor of lur
pontine or pitch. Hams, butter, and even
eggs nro so impregnated with ihis taint as
lo materially lessen their market valuoon
their arrival here. Strange ns it may
seem, we have ourselves been placed in
possession of indubitable evidence that this
condition exists to a great extent in our
provisions imported from Oregon. Much
of the butter brought hero by sailing ves
sels is rejected as strong" by tha buyer,
when the fact is that it is simply inipreg
nated in the manner to which we have al
luded. A parcel imported in a tea-chest
lined with lead, appeared to escnpo the in
fluence, which it would bo well for ship
pers in Oregon "to make a nolo of."
Uuless soma means is devised of protect
ing provisions which aro shipped in lum
ber vessels from this taint, the carrying
trade of such articles must inevitably pass
into lh hands ef the proprietors of steam
ships on the coast, which, of course, cany
no lumber. San Francisco Totrn Talk.

The Minnesota Imbroglio as Viewed
by a Disinterested Party. Tho Louis
villo Journal, being neither Republican
nor "Democratic" iu its sympathies, but
inimical to both these parties, can bo con
sidered as n disinterested spectator of the
Constitutional-Convention proceedings in
Minnesota. Wo quote from it ns follows:
" It is not only a very disreputable but
an exceedingly melancholy fact that all
the recent attempts at Territorial govern
ment, and tho subsequent attempts of the
Territories in question to become part and
parcel of the National Confederacy have
been attended with great disorder. Such
was not tha case of old. In former years
tho pcoplo had a . higher respect for llie
majesty of the Constitution. They re
garded the Constitution with more filial
eyes. They could not for a moment con
sider the propriety or constitutionality of
uttering sentiments or entering upon
courses of conduct in opposition to those
which not only law had established but
universal custom rendered the will of the
nation. Until very recently all of our
Territories were governed by the General
Government peacefully, calmly, and with
that due regard to the right which is in
nate in our system of republicanism and
guarantied by the great chart of our
liberties. Of late, however, a new spirit
has grown op; It is a spirit born of evil,
that has no respect fur Constitution and
laws born, too, we must say, of iho mis
erably offensive, hazardous, and jacobinical
policy that now so pre-eminently charac
terizes the spirit and sway of the self styled

our Territories, whuro the field possess in
summer the richest Wn and the lakes
glinien brightest ; where aro all tho el.
omenta of a mighty nd peaceful sover
eignty, the latent and most melancholy dis
turbance bat occurred. The last Congress
passed actt authorizing tho election of a
Convention la draft a Constitution nnd es
tablish a Slate form of governmriit. This
election wns attended by considerable ex
citement, aud resulted in iho ele ction of
foriy-fivt Democrat and fifiy-aix Repub
lican. The members were lo convene on
tha 13th of July. Prior to iho duy of
assemblage, the Democrats, being in a mi
nority, offered to agree upon a lime of
meeting, did make the agreement, nnd
then, in violation of llieir compact, met in
advance of the hour, had a man present lo
call them to order, and proceeded (o or
ganize. The other party met at tho some
time, and organized, and thus Dial tors
stand. The Constitutional Convention ia
divided into two sections. All of the mem
bers of each have been, wo tnppose, prop,
erly elected, but, the opposition having a
majority of eloven, the Democracy do not
choose to recognize it. It is needless lo
recite tho details of the affair by which
the Democrats obtained possession of the
hall, and how, by threats of violence, llicy
strove to further their designs. Tho fact
is patent that llicy are in a minority and
are seeking to subvert the rights of a ma
jority of the people's representatives.
" And ihis is modern Democracy ! A
miserable substitute, indued, for tho name.
It is not only anarchy but despotism. It
is, in fad, revolution, for which there can
be no palliation. In tho organization of
the new State of Minnesota there nro in
volved no new or vital principles. Slavery
has nothing to do with its form of govern,
mcnt. Tha contort is alone between the
people. They aro to decide who nro to be
its rulers, and what Is to bo ibe nature of
its constitutional government. Having
made that decision, the Democracy, so
styled, hare no right to enter upon (he
aggressive, tyrannical, and traitorous

Tho reason of this is obvious. The

town of Victor, at the time ho became a

Ho lived in a log shanty, with a dilapidated,

of tow-headed children. Occasionally he

and revivals, where he managed to get his
daily bread out of the more wealthy breth
