YONCAILA, UmFQDA, )
April 20, 1858. ,
The political commotions in lbs United
States bare been caused by two great an
tagonistic motives of human action. And
though to many the difference between
these principles may appear slight and In.
significant, yet a moment's reflection and
reasoning upon ibe philosophy of cause
and effect will show a biatns between them
as wide as the globe and that the totions
of men impelled by these different motives
mast morally be as dissimilar as day and
night. And a littlo labor to apply these
principles to the late doings of the SJu
premo Court, the Congress, and the lead,
ing political parties of the United States,
will clearly demonstrate that in actual
principle there are bat two great parties
now dividing the American people. And
wben the fundamental principles of these
are known, it is easy for a man to ascer
tain to what party he properly belongs, by
simply applying these principles as tests
to bis conscience.
When a proposition is made to a man act.
ing from the first principle, or that which
constitutes the civilized man, he naturally
and as if from the force of an instinct in
quires, Is it right t ought I to do it!
while a person actuated by the second, or
that of the uncivilized man, as nat
urally and instinctively asks, Will it pay t
can I do it t Now a man with the leaat
mental acumen is bound to discover the
incompatibility of then principles, and
that persons who act from the first never
can agree or consent to the settling of great
questions, moral or political, by this second
principle. From the action of the first
principle we have evidence of the existence
of the human soul, while the manifesta
tions of the other are simply animal.
This second principle is now extremely
popular with a large class of the American
people, who, by bowling demagogue, and
light-fingered gentry editors that make it a
paying business to reflect back to their
subscribers the prejudices of their own ig
norance, are apparently successfully taught
that all higher motives of human action
are ' radical,' o fanatical too theoretical ;
or reform not prudential, practical, and
sagacious enough do not keep the ryes
sufficiently steadfast upon the all-absorbing
number one. That this degenerate princi
ple baa predominated in the politics of Or.
egon, and in fact all over the United Slates,
for the last few years, no one need for a mo
ment doubt ; and that this first principle
actuated our fathers in founding this gov
ernment, all will as readily admit: for in
reality it is the natural emanation of a seul
capable of the emotions of patriotism
while the second as naturally proceeds
from a mind that is dead to everything
that is generous or noble, and perfectly in
capable of reaching beyond self. The first
principle has reared every superstructure
of government, or institution, that has ever
arisen in the world expressly for the good
of mankind ; the other is the element of
their dissolution its natural tendency is
to tear them down and erect over theii
ruins systems of selfish oppression.
This first principle is the prime element
of the great Republican party : it consti
tutes the great moral base upon which it
rests, and, iu the very nature of things, is
as immutable as the rock of ages. To an
nihilate or crush it out, would be to anni.
hilate or crush out the very element that
yet prevents the centralization of the gov
erning prerogative, or that ever rendered
it poarible in any country or age of the
world for liberal institutions of govern
ment to exist. It is the spirit that gives
the impulse to build and maintain patriotic
institutions, and the opposition is the unpa
triotic principle that they go down upon.
And now, notwithstanding thnt this sacred
principle has so lately been down in the
mud and the mire, where it was being trod
den under foot by contending avarice and
corruption, every true-hearted and honest
American, instead of being ashamed of it,
as many persons seem, should be proud to
own it, embrace it, and defend it: for
whenever a people transcend ihis simple
principle of action, they have passed be
yond and sank below the elements of har.
monioua existence, and can in fact no lon
ger maintain a government as a whole peo
ple consequently the tbrn existing
government, no matter what external form
it may possess, cannot be in reality any
thing more than the will, wishes, and de
signs of seme self-constituted authority
just making it pay.
There bas always been a mass of mean
men in the world, and mad all the days of
their lives, because thry knew there was
immutably fixed in creation a higher prin
ciple of action than the one they wished
to use. Such are ever ready to brand as
fanatical and hateful, and urge as fast as
possible a popular prejudice against, hon
esty, integrity, and truth. This decency
constitutes a grade of existence decidedly
loo elevated is society so much so as to
excite the disapprobation of a democratic
President (to-called). Feeling their nat
ural inferiority to those who are actuated by
the higher motive, they continually feel a
burning animosity and hatred, so that
scarcely an opportunity can pass without
a manifestation of their leveling spleen ;
and in fact a great port of the vulgarity,
drunkenness, and rowdyism is but a bra
vado to treat with contempt and trample
down tbaae holding to the principles of hon
esty and decency.
This groveling greaser bravado disposi
tion carried to its natural ultimatum, as has
been loo often the case in Oregon, makes it
an especial point to All the offices with per
sons who are destitute of breeding, hoossty
or capacity. Nor should any be surprised
at this even ; nor will they wben tbsy re
flect that It is an old and well known set
hunting op their own kind, and that they
long bave bad two importaet object! to
continually labor for i first, by electing it to
office, if possible, to make low-bred dishon
esty dignified and respectable : and second
to retaliate upon decency, truth and bon
est industry, for bsing, In spite of all ibeir
exertions to the contrary, still the roust
honorable, dignified and respec'able.
Ft the Argut.
Mr. Editor I write concerning the
"Union," and trust that your readers will
take no offense at my remarks, as I ahall
leave them perf clly free (according to the
Nebraska Rill) to form iheir own conclu
sionsto adopt lbs Union system of trsds
or stand by the old one, just as thry please.
It is known by many that more than a
year ago we commenced an experiment un
der the " Protective Union," at this place,
that last summer we suspended trade J
and it was as generally supposed that our
Division would not resume business ; that
the "Union" had "gene under." Uut
the pioneer Division fur Orrgoo is not dead
yet. We boast not, however; life at best
is uncsrtain : we may expire next week.
We suggest lo some of our friends, the
merchant-), who have prophesied all man
ner of misfortune for us, that they " keep
their eyes skinned," and be ready to abed
a tear in case we meet an untimely close.
It is not my present purpose to prove
that the Sulem Division will succeed, tho'
I remark for the information of the inqui
ring that we have new a store-house of
our own saving rent; that we are, con
sidering everything, a thousand or fifteen
hundred dollars better off than we were
last season, with better prospects ahead ;
in brief, it is the calculation lo succeed,
whether we do or not.
But, leaving our Division to work its
way onward, and speculations concerning
it to the speculator, it is interesting lo no
tice the reasoning of some meo. Last
summer the Division, it was thought, had
entirely failed, and the conclusion was that
therefore the Union system of Irsde is not
practicable, and is of no account. Now
this is simply silly. Suppose tbsl we bad
" gone in" or " caved in" ao far as never to
bo beard from ; or suppose that this Divis
ion should yet fail ; that would not prove
necessarily that ths system is not a good
one; it might only show mismanagement,
ignorance, or a venture into business with
a capital entirely too small. Farmers fail
sometimes; does it follow, then, thai farm
ing is a bankrupting business? And it
has happened in the world that merchants
fail ; at least one or two have come short
since the Flood and recently a wail comes
over from the F.ast. An army of mer
chants hare failed from an attack of a
" commercial crisis." Unlike the " crisis"
in water cure, it proved their ruin. Now,
Mr, Opponent of Union trade, would it be
imart in any man to argue from recent ex
tensive failures that the idea of success in
merchandising is an illusion a humbug t
Certainly not. Let the man, then, who
would conclude against the Union system
from a false experiment, look to the settle
ment of accouuts under the old system ;
when they are squared, be may be prepared
to look further into the experience of Union
Suppose that of the several scores of
Union stores in the Stales not one of them
failed during, and as a consequence of, the
late panic, what would that show t Where
would the humbug stand then I And yet
I venture that such is the fact. Farmers
of Oregon, would you know ths secret of
this matter I Study I he simple throry of
the Protective Union, and you will find it.
It will be found some where about the bean,
iiful truth that producers and consumers
ought to attend lo their own business, and
not foolishly give it away to others.
Mr. Editor, let this serve as an introduc
lion, and I will continue my rambling on
other occasions. C. IIoel.

far (At Argu.
Mr. Editor. During the Presidential
campaign of 1950, the Democratic papers
all cried out against the Republican party
because the London Times supported
heir nominee for President the gallant
Fremont. They tried to make the Amer
ican people believe that the Republican
party was the disunion parly, because
they knew the great Thunderer of the
English aristocracy desired the disruption
of the American Union, and hence sup
ported Fremont and Dayton.
The supposition that the Times sup
ported, and desired the success of the Re
publicans because it was of the opinion
ihey were disunionists, may be, and proba
bly is well founded. Rut the Times made
a mistake ; and now it sees that mistake.
By evidence overwhelming it has been con
vinced that the Republican is ibe Union
party, and lhat the Democratic, under the
head of Buchanan, is driving the Ameri
can Government to destruction as fast as
the people will let the thing be done.
Hence that paper now brings all its ener
gies to bear in support of Buchanau'a Lo
compten Kansas policy, and winks approv
ingly at the re-opening of lbs slave trade.

Modi of Maeino Sugar from tbr Cm-
niseSuoar Cane. At a lata convention
of the growers of Chinese Sugsr Cane in
Illinois, held at SpringoVIJ, a premium was
awarded to Joseph 8. Loveriag, of Phila
delphia, for the most perfect specimens of
sugar maaufacturrd from the Chinese cane.
He bas published a paanphlsl describing
his mode of manufacturing, and the M
lowing are bis conclusions:
1. That it is obvious there it a culminat
ing point in the dsvslopment of tho sugar
In ibe cane, which is tho best lime fr su
gsr making. This point or season I con
sider to be, when most if not all tho seeds
are ripe, and after several frosts, say when
the temperature falls to 25 or 90 drg. F.
2. That frosts, or even hard freezing,
do not injure the juice or the sugar, but
warm Indian summer weather, after the
frost and hard freezing;, does injure lliein
very materially, and reduces both the
qusntity and quality.
8. That if the cane is cut and boused, or
shocked in the field when in its most favor
able condition, it will probsbly keep un
changed for a lonr lime.
4. That when ths juice is obtained, the
process should proceed cautiously and
5. That the clarification should be as
perf.-ct as possible, by the time the density
retches IS d-g., when lh syrup will have
Ike appearance or food branny.
6. Ihst although rgs ere used in
thee small experiments, on account of
their convenience, bullock's bload, if lo be
had, is equally as good, and the milk of
lime alone will answer the purpose; in me
latter case, however, more constant and
prolonged skimming will be required lo
produce a perfect clarification, which is
7. That the concentration, or boiling
down, after clarification, should he as rapid
as possible without scorching shallow
evaporations being the best.
With these condi'iona secured, it ia
about as eaxy to make good sugar from the
sugar cane as to make a pot of mimh, and
much easier than to make a kettle of good
03" Everybody remembers the platform
on which the great Stebbins planted him
self, when be rsn for President of the Uni
ted Slates. When asked how he stood on
the Maine law, he promptly answered
that he was "in favor of the law, hut
against its execution." This admirable
political position has been assumed in
New Hampshire and other Slates by the
Democratic party, in resolutions express
ing unabated confidence in Mr. Buchanan,
and pronouncing against the measure on
which he has staked his Administration.
Mr. Hale showed up the resolutions from
New Hampshire, and said lhat the Demo
crats of this Stale only meant to endorse
Mr. Buchanan, and lo repudiate his acts.
0"Al a Republican Convention held
at Crawfordsville, Indiana, one of the
speakers, alluding lo the frauds which the
Lecompton party are sustaining in the Kan
ans election, said "That I lie Buchanan men
had abandoned tho Cincinnati platform to
stand upon the Cincinnati Directory."
03-Gov. Wise has written a letter to
the Philadelphia Anti-Lecompton meeting,
in which he combats the lame positions of
Mr. Buchanan in his recent Kansas mes
sage. What a spectacle is thi I A
Southern bitter Pro-Slavery Governor is

Whisht Rrbrllion. The Akron

act, but his proclamation was treated with
every feminine demonstration of disrespect,
