The proceeding! of the Republican Con
vention in Washington county, which we
publish today, give evidence tint the
gooj cause it progressing. Our friands in
that county have hitherto fulled to organ
ize, owing to circumstances ever which
they at present have full control. We
have not the pleasure of na acquaintance
with any of the coinmittee on resolutions,
excepting Dr. Juhnton, whom we have
known for some time to bu sound Repub
licin and a man of sufficiently good judg
ment to see that Drilling short oft thor.

based upon immutable principle, can ever
accomplish anything towards real, ll.or.

While we would be glad to have all
men who have do sympathy with tho de
mocracy, unite with us, we cannot of
course expect every man who has hereto
fore rallied under the temporary banners
of "people's ticket," "law and order par
ty," "Whig party," and "American
party," to adopt the Republican platform
unless he is a Republican in principle.
The Republican organization is n perma
nent one it oilers a sure foundation to him
who cherishes the principles of Clay, Jeffer
son, and Washington, in whole, so fur as
they aro involved in tho issues of the pres
ent day it is a party that is bound to wrest
the scepter of power from tho clutches of
sectional secessionists in 1S00 a party

and place meu in their stead who wi'l nei

or Republican. Then even Czapkay'i or

overhaul our Land Offices, and see wheth
er Col. Gardner was really the cause
of the present "delay in issuing patents,"
mod whcthor.our honest farmers are all In
pass away without ever having had thrir
yea blessed wiih the sight of ihoso "put

liave now nothing to d but whittle dry

with certificates of qualifications for good

The bones of Duchnnan, Jo Lane, and
other driven nipgers, will be decently in
t erred slung aide of limes of JelT Pavie,
Tomb, Kelt), Orr, Brown, and other se
cession lire-eairrs, in one common charnel-
house down on some Islsnd in the swamps
of Florida, where the ring of the hammer,
the whliila of the Iron horse, and the
merry song of untold millions of liappy
fiee laborers will never dxturb their derj
rrpoi; but where the screech of the owl,
the howl hi the wolf, the hum of the m
q-jjio, and the splash of the crocodile will
mingle with no sound, ssv the crsck of the
whip, the oaths of tbe overseer, and the
shrieks of female cotton-pickers I
Such are some of the objects and pur
poses of the Republican party a party
which any historian or statesman of any
sagacity might see is bound to triumph,
where a rapid augmentation of the popu
latiun conies from the ranks of while la
borers, who are all fiee and all permitted
to vnte. When these great national issues
have been forced upon the American peo
ple, and when the great heart of the nation
is throbbing under the omnipotent mean
ing of iLese issues how superlatively silly
for any Republican or any fre soil Drm
ncrnt to close his ryes to the greet notional
questions which rise above all others in
importance, and run off with either one of
two factions which loth agree at to Buch
anan democracy, but are fighting about the
tremendous issue as to whether a locofoco
it bound by eaueut action, provided hi
doesn't go into the eaueut 1 1
Let all factions, squads, grumblers, and
outside skirmishers butt their brains out
in quarreling over a bone without meat or
manow, but let Republicans stand by their
colors, marshal their hosts, and give their
ticket such it vote as shall tell In moral
influenco upon the next campaign.
&TT Let it be remembered that tho na
tional platform rests on Jo Lane, nnd Jo
Lnnc is seated on the Salem platform, call
ing piteously on nil Democrats to vote the
busliiie ticket. Every man thereforo w ho
votes for a single national, indorses not
only Jo Lane but the Salem platform and
Cznpksy's agent, with Lane's nigger.
The "nationals, in getting up their
platform, either thought that Oregonians
were a set of asses, or else they were a set
of very silly politicians themselves. While
their platform has failed lo satisfy the fire
caters by trying to steer between Buchan
an and Douglas, nnd the dirl-eaters, by re
fusing to endorse bushism nnd Lecomplon,
it has disgusted all sensible men by its
cringing, lickspittle servility to the figure
hend of the clique, and by its Intended non
committalism on the only really important
issues of the day. It is a hotchpotch dish
of national viondt, which really amounts
to nothing more than bushism, Jo Lane,
and Duchannniam served up in a different
way from what it is set before the
Democrat, whether nationals or Salem
ites, aro much in the same condition of
Peck's boarders. Teck kept a one horso
hotel at Cairo, III., end proposed to feed
his customers on "every variety the mar
ket nfforded." The first dish served was
catfish baked, the second, catfish boiled,
lit') tliird, catfish fiied, the fourth, catfish
stowed, tho fifth, more catfish, the sixth,
rBtfih omelette, the seventh, more catfish.
Poor Peck did the best he could under the
circumstances, but it was hard tocotnitice
his boarders, although they Imd dined on a
great many dishes, that they had eaten any
thing but catfish. If tho " nationals" ex
pect to sot a different table from the bush-
ites, they must give us something better
than Jo Lane nnd Duchnnan. It's too
much catfish for any but a bushite.
(fcj Wo have not hoard a word as to
how the battle goes on in the South since
tho nationals nnd bushitcs went out ihore
lo take the stump. We judge, however,
from the lone of Czapkay's organ, that bad
news for the csucus-sovereignites is com
ing in. Its weak and snarlish tone forces
the conviction upon its readers that the ed
itor is either mightily frightened, or is en
tirely prostrated by a chronic dyspepsia
and another attack of the diarrbwa. It
gives us unmistakable evidence that Gen.
Barn u in is pouring some hot shot into the
bushite camp, and stirring up the Snlem
snakes with a sharp stick.
3 Czapkay's orgnn contains a letter
from the " Mary Ann of the Mexican war,"
dated March 18th. The old granny slob,
bers over the split in the locofoco pnrty,
snivels about the dangers the Union is in
by reason of this split, tells the people he
would like to be elected Senator, and then
winds up by begging every man who has
a "single democratic drop of blood in his
veins to vote for the " regular nomineet"
(busbites). What Jo Lane means by a
"democratic drop," we are at a los to de.
termine. The only really "democratic
drop" we can think of, is the "drop"
winch Jackson threatened to use as a plat,
form for Calhoun, the father of democracy.
Calhoun was to have stood on it with a rope
around his neck an excellent type of
what ought to be the platform of the Salem
clique as well as the position of the gentry
w ho stand on it.

05" The Nationals held their county
convention in this City last Saturday, and
brought out the following ticket.
State Senator fur Clackamas tod Wasco,
W. A. Starkweather.
Stale and Territorial Representatives
George Rees, V. A. Colls rd, Wm. Singer.
County Judge J. D. Post.
SherifT-C. F. liatie.
Assessor C. Boy nton.
Treasurer Capt. Johnson.
County Clerk Sep. Ileulatt.
Co. Commissioners J. 12. Taylor,
Surveyor S. L. Campbell.
(r The busliiles voted in the various
precincts last Saturday fur county officers,
There was little voting done in any precinct
but this. In some of the precincts the men
to wham the poll books were sent were so
ashamed or litem that they stuck them
away subject to the order of Czapksy's
agent. The Oregon City officials, of course
had the thing all their owe way. The vole
of thit precinct decided who were the can
didate excepting, perhaps, the sheriff.
If there was any other exception we have
not been able to learn it. Here is the
Represent stives F. A. Hedges (Sub
Indian Agent), Mr Jennings (Sub Indian
Agent and Contractor), Dolph Hannah
(candidate against Smith and Williams for
U. S. Senate).
County Judge Robt. Caufield (present
Sheriff A. Holcomb (present Sheriff, by
the grace of I ho bushite).
Co. Commissioners Bullies Holcomb
(present Com. in consequence of having
long tailed on lo the busliiles).
County Clerk Frank Holland (present
clerk, an agent for Czapkay's orgau and a
sworn bushite for life).
The rest of the ticket we have not learned
but they aie, f course, all sound and reli
able busliiles, selected for their love of the
(i) nasty and their haired of the "nationals."
03r We had made our arrangements to
visit the diHt-rent counties in the Territory
in company with the Republican candidates,
but having been nominated for an office in
this district and put upon the course,
(much against our inclinations), we shall
be obliged to attend exclusively lo this pari
of the political vineyard. We shall dtvo'e
some of our time between this and (he elec
tion to trying to hold some of the Ctnckn
mas stumps down, after having put modern
democracy under them.
03" Dr. Henry made a very lair speech
in this city last Saturday, in which he took
occasion to denounce the busliiles, pitch
into Delazon, nnd declare himself as stand
ing aloof fiom all parties. (In sympathized
with Douglas, and retained his attachment
for Henry Clay.
The Dr., after trying pretty much nil
parties, has become disgusted with politics,
and will probably lay low, waiting for
something to turn up. He as good as de
clared, however, that he could support
none of the tickets now out unless it be the

Kelly, Delazon, and O'Menra spoke at Jack'
sonville, April lftth, to about 400 people.
The candidates and ' Delazon spoke about
nn hour each in the day time, and Del a
nznn spoke two hours in the M. R. church
after night. We wonder if that church
would be opened for a tempcrauce lecture I
03" The Sentinel and Herald are both
pegging away for the bushite ticket,
lea a acts.
We learn that Czapkay's organ refused
to publish 12. M. Barnum's appointments
for public speaking, even when the money
was tenaereu m payment. Hits is a spe
cies of meanness that probably no other
paper but the clique organ and perhaps its
little colored satellite at Portland wo"ldbe
Charles Jones, a single man, who was
employed on the, new foundery in this city
was seriously injured last Thursday by tbe
falling of a doom bent, which struck him
on lhe shoulders, crushing him down and
severely bruising him. Mr. Love discov
ered him soon after the accident happened,
nnd came to his relief. The bent was hut
about eight feet high, but of such w eight
that it took two men to lift it so as to re
lieve the injured man. Mr. Jones was en

We are glaJ to see that Fowler ti Wells,
who are ever alive to the wants of the who's
community, are about to try their hands
upon eeconJ series of hand books, upon
"lhe House, Hie Gardui.," "The

hsve no doubt but the hooks will exactly
meet lhe wsn's of ninny of our Intelligent
farmers who have often written to us for
oiks upon rural architecture, practical
horticulture and agriculture, besides such
as offer valuable suggestions upon rearing
These new hand hooka propose to give
all this information, and the whole four
will be furuished (muslin bound) for $1,00.
We should like to see a thousand of these
books circulated among our Oregon farm
ers. We hnvr naturally the most lovely
country on the globe, and if our farmers
and gardeners will cultivate their tasles by
the study of such books, and improve iion
the suggestions mudo by them, they will
soon find themselves in the possession of
homes so attractive lo themselves and so
di-ar to their families that they will never
think of "selling out," besides finding
their burthen of labor much lightened by
what might properly be termed n few
" Yankee conveniences." A man couldn't
make better investment than by sending
a dollar (with few stamp to pay postage
on the books) to Fowler & Wells, 308

Tbe committee on resolutions presented
the following, which were rend and udopt
ed with no dissenting vote :
Whereas, errors of nerious nature tore
held by many ofour estimable and patriot
io citizens regarding the principle and de
Mgns of the Republican party, therefore be
1. That w e believe the founders of this
governmeiil, w ho were sufficiently wise lo
set on foul a popular government which for
the first lime in the history of nations has
demonstrated the praclicittiili'y of a democ
racy, were sufficiently intelligent to under,
stand the meaning of the constitution they
famed, and knew whether the legislative
enactir.ents of their own time were constitu
tional or not.
2. That we believe thai tho policy they
inaugurated in reference to lhe government
of territories, in exercising a guardianship
ovcrlhein duriii'.' their minority, 0 as lo
prohibit legislation recognizing wrong, is
in no way inconsistent with true popnlir
3. Ihat republican hnve no confidence

4. I hat lliei ItepublicHi) parly, asaisti d

of the people of Kansas to vole upon their
whole constitution, anri therefore the onlv
quarter from which a real honest, perina
unit di fense of popular right mav be look-

5. 1 hat while the Republican party
has no organ, and no member of lhe party,
however obscure, thai is n disunionist,
therefore it ia lhe only pnrty that canal

Slurs and S'ripcs in defense of tho whole
6. That in the history of congressional
enactments fur lhe last two year we see
abundant proof that Oregon need look for
little favor from confess until she is rep
resented in a republican congress by re
publicans. 7. Jnat the triumph of repufdican prin
ciples will alonu settle l Ik slavery auitation
and bring peace lo Ihn whole country.
8. I hat the charge so incessantly made
against the republican party by lhe organ
of tho Latter Day democracy, that it is
striving to elevate the black raca lo a level
with the Atiijlo Saxon, is wilfully and ma.
9. That the republican parly is lhe white
nian's party, nnd to it alone can the teem

struggling against a chattel labor ruitnl,
which seeks lo inaugurate itself in ft'l lhe
States and Territories to tho ruin of the
poor whites, look for protection.
10. That we are in favor of principles
a rid men, the lormer of w hich must be
democratic, and the latter capable, honest,
and faithful lo lhe Constitution.
11. That we are just as much opposed
to Jo. Lane and the Administration of
Buchanan as 'n are to the humble! tool
