The present it (lie most exciting pil iti
cal campaign we Lave yet witnessed in Or
egon. After I lie smoke of llin conflict lifts
from the tattlo field, and the reaull of the
June election ilmll be known, many who
ore now wavering but ween duly end poli
cy will see much mote plainly whet thry
should hove dune, than they now ice tsliat
is lent to do, Men tvho are now Lulling
between n perpetual and lifelong ullc.
giance to the ReimMictn parly, and a tem
porary alliance to a mushroom democracy
in hopes of striking nn rff c'ive blow nl the
rotten dynasty nt Sulctn, will then login to
soe the moral influence of a united effort
on the part of Republicans to bear their
banner onward to victory, unsullied by uV
vicei suggestive of caucus sovereignty,
and untarnished by symbols of despotism,
whether borrowed from the ensign of Aus
tria nnd Russia, ur tho escutcheon of such
liberty-bating demagogues at Buclmn.in
and Jo Lane.
Let men once unrlursluiid that the present
strunglo is but the beginning of a series of
conflicts which nro to decide the futo cl
the million of white laborers ho wiih
their posterity lire eventually to possets
every foul of this continent, except whore
black serf, as tho labor capital of a mo
neyed nristucrncy nl present, monopolize
tho field of industry let them appreciate
the fact that this Ntrii"glo W to decide
whether tho beautiful leiriplo of huiinin
liberty, the foundation of which was laid by
tho heroes of the Revolution, is to be fin
ished even to tho belfry, or wla-iher it shall
be razed to the ground, nnd the very soil
under its foundation shall be dug up by a
co file gang of bended slave, u hipped on
by so mo democratic muluito overseer, to
digging a grave for the Constitution, and a
place to bury the Declaration of Indepen
dence out of sight let tbrm understand
thnt tho sectional democracy that now holds
tho reins of government has made up the
issue and arrayed itself on the side of des
potisin, fraud, tyranny, And a slavo-breeding
aristocracy thnt it is the sworn enemy of
tbohaid handed Anjlo-Saxon pioneer, who
lias a natural tight to enough of God's
lierilugo to support himself and little ones,
and who has a right to be protected by
government against a ruinous competition
of nigger labor capital that reduces his
wages, robs his children of bread, nnd
drives him from the country that this
Administration is in league wiih secession,
fire-eating, slavery propagandists, and has
taken the humiliating position that the
Constitution carries the black tide of slave
immigration to the vrry doors of every poor
man s cabin in a Territory, nnd is now
using all its influence and patroiiogo to
crush out liberty, and inaugurate slave
breeding among a people w ho abhor it
an Administration which has removed
Stanton, forced Walker to resign, and rend
Douglas, with every decent Democrat, out
of tho parly, for daring to stand up for pop
ular sovereignty, ami is now only supported
by Southern secessionists and suuh un
principled Northern driven-niggers as Jo
. Lane J we soy let men (wo don't mean
things) understand these great national is
sues between tho national Republicans nnd
tho sectional Democracy iu the Stales is
sues which are yet to be tried before ihe
American people issues of more trans
cendent importance than have ever L. fore
divided political parties issues that now
rise, and will conlipuo to rise, above nil
thoe that in like up tho creeds of little de
tached political squads issues that stir tho
heart of tha great American people, and
rock the whole Government on its basis
and then let men remember that the only
parly in Oregon that joins issue wiih the
sUve-brecding, secession, and amalgama
tion Democracy of the East, headed by
liuuhnnnn ami tailed off by Jo I.ano, is tho
Republican party; and that both wings of
the Democracy in Oregon claim to bo mere
ly excrescences of the rotten carcass al
ready alluded to, both claiming to love
Jo Lane very dearly, and to have un
bounded confidence in the corrupt Admin
istration at Washington, both alike asha
med of Douglas ami his co laborers, the
only men in the party who can lay any
claim to democracy both agreed to en.
dorsing scoundrelism and fraud generally,
and in denouncing such doctrines as those
I by Clay, Crittenden, Jefferson, Mad
, and Washington as "abolitionism"
while tho great issue that divides those
hard shells and sofi shells is simply this
The hard shells believe that If a loerfoco
goes into a caucus, or stays out of a caucus,
it is bound by the action vf the caucus."
Tho soft shell' creed is a linlit shorter,
(the reason why tome old lino Whigs have
fallen in lovo with it)" A hcofoeo is not
bound by ths action of at Caucus, unless he
goes in," Well, isn't that ft tremendous
issue I No wonder they hid no room for
such minor ones as the Douglas end
Buchanan policies. We cannot conceive
hew any Republican can be very much
interested in settling that issue about the
binding obligations of locofoco caucuses.
If Republicans will stand firm for princi
ple, slick to their Siate ticket, and work
for it by giving it R heavy vote, they will
secure aonoihiug in the way of a moral
influence that will tell for Republicanism
in the future. Just think of the moral in
fluence of ihe vole given for Lawsnn lost
year. It has been the real cause of ihe
split among the democracy this year.
Let Republicans work for iheir ticket from
this till the election, and lay a sure foun.
dition for the future. Tha salvation of
the country rests with the success of no
other parly. Remember that.

03" New Ilampsh'ne has gone Republi

cent election in all the towns in York Sinle,
a large majority of ihein went Republican.
In many places " Douglas deinocratio tick,
eti'' liavo been beaten by the Republican
tickets. Democracy is beginning to have
such a bad odor in the Siates that ihe peo
ple ore afraid of every thing bearing the
name. That is right li t men vote for
Republican, and then they may al.ep
sweetly, believing that they have not en
dorsed despotism, fraud, or dishonesty, in

in Congress. Tho Senate had agreed to

mixing thingi mightily when he looks
down and sees ihe ''Nuiionals" on Jo

The ruget Sound Herald of April lOih
says that several persons havo returned lo
ISellinghnm Day from the new mines on
Frnzier's river to obtain supplies. They
report gold abundant and easily obtained.
Several persons on the Sound have rccciv.
cd letters from their friends in the mines
corroborating tha above statement. The
hands at ihe mills, tho crews of vessels,
and tho Regular forces about the Sound
have genornlly dropped their work, left
their employers, nnd rushed for the new El
Dorado. We have heard patiently all the
arguments in i'uvor of the different routes to
the mines, nnd wo are inclined to believe
that by way of the Dalles is ihe best.
Wood, water, and grass arc said to be abun

t& In turning over Iho pages of the
Spiritual Telegraph this week, we noticed
an article headed " The Great Revival."
Being curious to know what a spiritualist's
notions of "revivals" were, wo read it.
The editor states that he visited the "revi
val'' with a desire to unravel tho great
mystery, and came away fully satisfied
that the house was full of spirits, as he had
no doubt he felt some of them himself. Ho
"If the writer of this possesses, as he
thinks ho dues, those mediatorial powers
which render him sensible, at times, of the
presence of spiritual influences, then there
was certainly a most powerful spiritual in
flux at the 01 J Dutch Church nn Thursduy
last. It seemed to come down like a cat
aract of spiritual fire, warming and vital
izing; but not burning, and taking effect up.

degrees of susceptibility.

that at the revival meetings in New York
city thoso who speak are confined to five
minutes each. Trenticr thinks thai the
New Yorkers ought to have sufficient time
in confessing their sins to make a clean
breast of the matter, and that the "ten
hour ruin" would be more appropriate.
Imagine for instance Bennett of the N. Y.

five minutes the idea is ridiculous.

The following Is from the hand of one of
(be "Nationals" of Clackamas county,
whose stomach heaves at the thought of
swallowing Buchanan and Jo Lane, There
are many oilier good men in the democrat
ic party (falsely so called) who are becom.
ing disgusted with the corruptions ol the
parly and have half a mind to bolt every
thing calling itself" democratic," and join
ihe Republicans. There are others who
still adhere to l he Nationals, believing
that the Eugene Platform doe not endorse
Buchanan. We are at a loss to see how
any man can make a fuss at swallowing
Buchanan, and at the same lime gulp
down Lane, who possesses all the political
vices of Buchanan without his virtues.
Rock Creek, O. T.
Mr. Adams W had supposed from
the first I hat ibo split in the Democratic
party was one of principle and nol merely
for the spoils of office. We hud supposed
that when Jo Lane mounted the Salem
platform that those who were opposed lo
thai platform would net eulogize or in
dorse him until ho had acknowledged his
error and embraced the Iruth as advocated
by I hose who were opposed lo the Sulein
Resolmions. But it now appears that we
have labored under a delusion. We had
looked to the Eugene Convention with
great interest hoping that it would indorse
the National Platform adopted at Cincin
nati, and with that be content. But
what is our mortification lo find them in
dorsing President Buchanan, who, every
person that roads knows, has left the Cin
cinnati platform to force slavery upon the
people of Kansas against their will.
Now it is true that the first resolution of
tho Eugene Convention does indorse the
Cincinnati platform, but the second iudors.
es Buchanan's Administration, whieh is as
far from i he Cincinnati platform as the
present Democracy is frmn JcHcrsoninn
principles, (and you know that is quite
Had the Eugene Convention only passed
the first resolution, we as free State demo
crats would not have entered a complaint.
But if they must pass another, it should bo
in accordance with the first, nnd this they
could have done by approving the acts of
Mr. Douglas in his present efforts to carry
out the principles of tho Cincinnati plat
form. That platform plainly indorses the
Kansas-Nebraska bill, which bill slates
thai its object is not to legislate slavery
into or out of the Territories, but to leave
the people thereof free to form their own
local institutions in their own way. Now,
sir, there wus not a delegate in the conven
tion at Eugene so ignorant as not to know
hat a large majority nf ihe people of Or
egon are opposed lo slavery, and in senti
ment and sympathy are with Mr. Douglas;
then why compel free State Democrats lo
indorso Buchanan, who is using nil his in
fluence to spread ihat institution over this
land of liberty f Did they wisli to force
free State Democrats to vote the Republi
can ticket ! Their actions say that much.
If thry should, can the Nationals complain !
Wf think not, if principle is to govern.
There is no doubt but Mr. Douglas is still
acting in accordance with the principles of
the Kansas-Nebraska bill, and, if so, why
no: indorse Mr. Douglas, at least ns soon a-t
the President ? I would say, with all can
dor, lo Free State Democrats, How can we
indorse Buchanan while we are opposed lo
the measures he advocates I In doing it,
wo throw our influence against Mr. Dou
glus and block iho door against Freedom
and Free Slate principles. Was there no
sincerity in the adoption of the Cincinnati
platform, or in those who professed to be
governed by ill or was it to be used fr
the promotion of certain individuals, and
then to be forgotten or thrown aside at
pleasure I Is it true thai ihe opposition to
the Jubilee Resolutions and the Salem
Platform was not real, and the opposition
to Jo Lane while ou that platform (and he
is still on it) was for no other object but to
displace those corrupt office-holders w ho are
in office, and place others there who are ns
void of principle as they are I If that is
all that is intended, the Eugene Convention
has produced but little reformation. The
only improvement en hushocracy that I
ran find is that the will of the people U
supreme and it may be that this election
may prove that same fact.
For one, I shall support neither Bush,
Jo Lsne, nor Buchanan, nor the men who
do support them iu the present struggle for
Freedom. A Voter,

many shoots for sale next fall. We ate
soino of ihe berries mined by George Wal
ling last year and consider them a great del
icacy. Thoso who urn propagating them
in the Slates assert that ihey were first
found wild at New Rnchelle, New Yoik,
and have never been seen in any other lo
cality. This a mistake. We ate the
same berries In the woods of either 'lVnni-s
see or Michigan, we are nol certain which.
The berry is so popular thnt plants have
been sold in York Stale al one dollar ach.
They are now worth in the States about
fifteen cents each.

I.MPRACHMKNT OF THR l'llKSIDENT The
shunless nnd infatuated efloils of ihe l'ies
idi'iil to impose minority rule upon the peo
ple nf Kansas, have ul ready produced a
feeling in Congress which promises in ie
sail in a degradation of the 1'rexideiilial
office, thus far unprecedented in ihe history
of Iho IIi-pub!ic. It is freely nllt-ged at
Washington thai Executive influence; has
been corruptly used lo secire voles in ihe
House of Representatives for tho Lccomp
lon Constitution. The justice nf these sun.
piciors is grounded not only upon the under-current
of conversation in Washington
circles, but upon the practical admission of
iho Administration parly the o'hi-r day in
voting aymine facto against Mr. Hoard's
firoposal for nn investigation, that the facts
ie sought to expose- would not bear the
light. The only ground taken for resisting
the motion was that its author would not
himself make specific charges of corruption,
the specific charges of newspaper corres
pondents not furnishing necessary aliment
for si.ch an inquiry as a qo-stinn nf privil
ege. Tim fate of Mr. Hoard's proposition
seems lo hnvc been unexpected, and In have
inflamed Ihe feeling which alreudy existed
against the President.
There is now a strong conviction that
Mr. Buclinnan bus laid himself open in an
impeachment, and some of the most pru
dent and farsigh'ed men in Washington are
seriously considering iho propriety of mak
ing an example of him. Should he persist
in his policy, and in using the patronage
of his office in the way he hns been usinf
it, we should not be surprised to hear of a
motion for his impeachment being moved,
any day. It will not pass, of course, for
when a majority nf Congress is dblijed fur
the sake of its own reputation wiih the
country, lo resist an exposure of alleged
corruption among its own members, it is
not in a condition to make an example of
the allpged corruptor.
Whether impeached or not, however,
'here is sornelhini; mortifying, not lo SBy
alarming, in the mere fact that a President,
in l lie first quarter of his administration,
should so indiscreetly we will not snv cor
ruptly exert the influence of his office as
to compel his political opponents to look to
nn impeachment as the only available
means of preventing our government's de
generating into an oligarchical despotism.
