The breach in the Democratic parly is
probably now pant healing. Douglas and
all hit adherents have been read out of the
party by iho Union, prnnsylveiiien, and
other Administration organ, and while
lha Ruchanan ordains claim thai Douglas

cro Stnle, the Dottglat papers claim lhal
the Administration by it "foolish and
mean Kamaa policy" hat killed squatter
sovereignty and driven Iho Northern de
mocracy by thousands into the Republican
camp. Tho Buchanan organs denounce
Douglases "traitor," "diorganier,"
V enemy," " freed Jin sbrieker," and 'UUtk
Republican. Those of our readers who
re acquainted with the " coarse' of Czap.
kay't organ toward Col. Kelly and tLe
Nationals, will Imve on a tmull scale an
excellent representation of the means
used by the "national democracy" in
Washington to put down Douglas dumoc
racy there. The bushiies have iu their Sa
lem platform swallowed Buchanan or na
tional democracy head and horns, and the
Eugene City convention has nothing left it
but to either change their name and adopt
Douglas democracy, or swallow Buchanan
Dver again and push him a little lower
down their atomachs than did the busbites.
Those who are trying le be "democrats"
contrary to their own judgment and in vio
lation of iheir conscience, have a bard
road to travel, and we really pity the poor
driven Diggers from the bottom of our
heart. There is no half-way ground bo.
tween the rotten, despoiio national black
democracy and the Union loving Repub
lican parly. To that party every white
roan is bound to go, and he might just as
well go there first as Inst.
. In the mean lime, we are happy to notice
that both the Oiichaiinn aud Douglas or
gans agree that black-democracy is dead in
every Northern Stale. Amen.
C3 Shubiick Norri of Portland has
been appointed Postal Agent for Oregon in

resigned. The Times puffs Nonia as a
first-rate follow, every way qualified for
the post, which is of c"uro a compliment
over the left with while folks. Every
body knows that our mail facilities are,
wretchedly out of joint. Even the locofoco
organs are making complaints of the pres
ent truly democratic (Latter Day demoo
racy we mean) method of enrrying and
-distributing our mails. We expect no im

to look for anything in a Lmtcr Day dem

lo leave thie county aad go lo McMinnville

Our a'teutioii has4en called lo the op.
eratiou of one of 0 rover k Baker's Sw.
iig Machines now in the family of Jt' V.
Mr. Atkinson of this cily. The machine
is very simpl in it construe' ion, and can
be innd lo perform the work of more than
half a dozen seamstresses by any ac'ie
gi'l of twelve or fourteen years. The
work it performs cannot beeq1 nhd by any
seamsires for neatness and durability.
V should judge fiem it operation that a
pair of psnialonns could be made on it in
Urns ihan an hour.
Urover ii Baker's machinea are said by
those who are acquainted with the various
patenia to excel all tilers in simplicity and
durability. .While, they cost more than
some others, they seldom getoul of repair,
and are really the cheapest in the long
run. They arnafloided in Boton at fiom
eighty live to ninety-five dollars each, ow
ing lo the finish. The introduction of one
hundred of these machines into Oregon
would supply as great a deficiency of labor
as would the importation ol five hundred
seamstresses. Those people who howled
so pileously last fall about the " want of
female help in the house" as an excuse for
voting for slavery, will now have an op
portunity of "proving- their faith by their
works." Let each one of them buy his
wife a sewing machine. It will cost him
only r.'O or 9125 delivered here, and
when here it will need neither food nor
clothing, will neither poison the family nor
run away, but will do more sewing than
six thousand dollars' worth of wenches.

news is unusually interesting.
In ihe House, Monday, FA A, after a

have given over 300 majority for ihe pro

office. They show only
about 40 rotes polled. Thie elects the
whole Free Slate ticket, provided Calhoun

The Washington correspondent of For
ney's Press, a Democratic journal, says;
"Gen. Calhoun visited Judge Douglas
shortly after his arrival. They had a long
conversation, several persona being present.

made no answer. Before they separated,
the question was ayaia made. Calhoun
replied, that the return had been properly

some sworn evidence en the subject. Cal

o'clock at night, Calhoun sent to Douglas's

Ihe President. Ue authorized Joriga Dou
glas, Mr. Harris of Illinois, and Gen. Quit

It is thought by some, that while ihe
Administration assures Northern Dime
cratsthnt Calhoun will issue certificates to
ihe Free State candidates in Kansrs, in case
Lecompton goes through Congress, that
functionary (Calhoun) will keep his prom
ies to the Southern men here, and give the

or at least to ihe Stnte officers. Nal. Era.
Gov. Wise is out with another long let.
ler denouncing the Lecompton iniquity.
On the evening ef the 13th Feb. the
Democratic members of the House held a
caucus in the Represents lives hall. They
had a very stormy meeting. Fifty four
members were present, among them sev
eral Anii-Lecoinptanites. After a good
denl of palaver, Mr. Clark ef Missouri said
thai there wa no use in beating about the
bush any longer. The question really be
fore the caucus was " Lecompton," and
they must decide whether or not those
who opposed iho Lecompton Constitution
should be allowed lo remain in the party.
Upon this there was a flare up. Mr.
Montgomery of Pennxylvaiuia denounced
Lecompton in strong terms, and protested
ngaiti!t it as ruinous to the Democratic
party. Mr. Burksdale of Misist.ippi said
that tho Ami. Lecompton Democrats were
followers nf Gov. Banks. Mr. Cot f Ohio
replied thai they followed another Gov
ernor, viz: Wise.
Mr. Cakie and other Virginians there

After a great deal of noise and confusion,
the proceedings .terminated with a speech
by Mr, Marshall of Illinois, who protested
against making Lecompton a test of Dem
ocracy. Aa for himself, he represented
the strongest Democratic District in the
United States a District which had given
ihe largest majority for Buchanan. Sup
pose it should turn outlast a majority of
the Democratic parly were opposed lo Le
compton who then would be read out of
lhat parly He was an old Democrat, and
did not want to be read out of ihe party
by men who had so lately entered it that
they were hardly dry behind the ears.
The split in the Democratic party is con
sidered irreparable. Arrangements are
said lobe in progress for Ihe formation of a
great Ami Lecompton party. The com
ing struggle will lend to fuse the as yet dis
tinct elements'into one.
Reports concerning the prospects of the
Lecompton Constitution in Congress vary
from day to day, from correspondent, lo cor
respondent. One thing seems certain:
here will be a long fight and a bard fight
in both Houses of Congress, and whatever
the final result, tlm people will have light
upon the Kansas question before Ihe discus
sion is over.
03 No sooner is the Administration
" floored" in the North, than we hear of " a
kick back" in a quarter whence bl.iws
were certainly least expected. A series ef
resolutions, endorsing the Administration,
which wr introduced into the lower
branch of the Alabama Legislature some

on Federal Relations, n see were reported
