Nearly 300 passengers came up on tho
last steamer from California, en route for
tho Frnzier's river gold mines. Ourc'ty
has been visited by numbers of them who
.are "prospecting" for an outfit to the mines.
We conversod with one man who is hunt
ing work, lie said he bad been to Pugct
Seund, and found the difficulties so great
in gelling to the mines by that route, and
the prospects so bud for gathering gold be
fore the water full be had concluded to go
to work in Oregon. Another old man roll
ed into tewn on foot, diiving bis pack horse
before him. Hi said he Lad mode bis
way from California in this manner, a dis
tance of 000 miles, and nfier going as far
into tho mountains towards the mines as it
was possible to grt he bad called a halt at
tho Cascade, and after advising with those
best able to giro a correct opinion, ho had
conc'nded to forego the dangers ami diffi
culties of the journey for the present, and
wait for bolter prospects:
The ruget Smnd papers publish letters
from " reliable nin" in the mines ho are
making from $5 to $ 8 00 a day on tho river
bars. The gold is very fine, and quicksil
ver is needed to save it. The Indians
showed them coarso specimens weighing
two dollars each that they had procured
high up tho river. Those who bud gone
up the river had been driven bck by the
Indiana, and the miners had all got togeth
er on a bar and gnno to work, wailing for
an immigration before they could venture
further. Provisions weru very high and
scarce. They nil think that when the
water fulls the mines will pay, but that will
not be before August or Seplrmber. In
the mean time, lot Oregoninns attend to
their business (if they have any) and wait
for something farther to turn up.

Why 1 Wave l.etl (he Democratic Tarty.
Silvehton, April 27th, 1858.
Ed. of Ahous As 1 have always here
toforo acted with the democratic party,
and been a strenuous advocate of its usages
lam fiequently asked w by I do not now
support ii. In giving a few reasons why
I have Irft Iho parly, 1 wish it distinctly
understood that 1 cherish the greatest re
spect for such conservative, men as are yet
honestly supporting t lust parly under the
erroneous impression that itisstill the same
conservative organization that it w as years
ago. The leaders of tho party in my hum
ble judgment have beenme arrogant, tyr
annical and corrupt, they aro constantly
cenniving at corruption and frauds upon
election, besides upholding and supporting
men in office who are tyrants at heart, men
who by fraud and ballot box stuffing have
onjeavored to wrest from the bands of the
people their dearest and most sacred righif,
and have then refused lo enquire into
the ground of the people's grievances,
when petitioned. Like ancient Tyre, the
democratic parly bas nothing left of its for
mer greatness but lb a name. Where are
Jefierson, Mailivon, Monroe, Jackson and
along lino of other patriots and statesmen,
once the ration's prido who supported the
doctrine orequal rights the greatest good
to the greatest number, nnd that the peo
ple bad n right to say what sort of govern
ment should be instituted among them I
Their principles and practices seem alike
lo bave lost their influence over the modern
leaders of the parly. These old states
men woulj never have abandonded the
" time benored" policy of the government
ia regard lo tbe territories to accommo
date either the petty whining! of abolition
ists or the silly bluster of secession slave
breeder!. These patriots nre dead, nnd the
principles of tUmecraey have been byried
with them by tbe leader of modern democ
racy. That the modern democratic party
is n sectional party Is almost too plain for
argument. Up lo within few yean eg
the party was careful to keep clear of all
entangling alliances between the ext rem
ikta both of the North and Sitmh upon tbe
slavery question. About the time (ho old
Whig party was discovered to be on the
decline great controversy a'osc upon the
slavery question, over new territory which
had been acquired. During this fearful
conflict the northern wing of the democracy
gave in lo the southern wing. Thus the
democraiio party becumo an exireina pro-
slavery parly, and proceeded lo tear down
the compromise! and foreshadow political
judicial oniniwns that would render nuga
tory nil of the old slavery resiriclion enact
ments of the founders of the government
Tbe conduct of that party towards ibe peo
pie of Kansas is all lint could have been
expected from any foreign desptt in n
bloody crusade against popular rights.
Freedom in its conflict with the pro.lnvery
party led by Southern firs eaters and as
tisted by Northern doujthfuoi! ns their al
lies, come well nih losing everything
in Kannas, and even our fire sides in the
tree States are threatened by late ominous
"opinions' of tho Washington Union and
oilier dimocralic papers. Our conxtitu
lioual rights nre lobe trampled upon, and
popular sovereignty will bvceinen byword
unlets the friends of fierdom of all parlies
unite nnd hoist a banner inscribed with
" Death lo politicul tyrants everywhere."
Lei slavery flourish as best it can wbero ii
already exists, but let free territory be sa
creu lo the white laborer, ihe present
Administration in in b'iud zeal le prove
itself a proslavery party has even removed
men from office in Missouri who favored
tho emancipation project which has recent
ly been set on foul in that Slate. Post
masters in every part of iho North have
even been removed for as-tertinir with
Douglas that the people of n Territory
ought lo bo allowed le vote on their Con
siitulion. The party baa declared that ii
is "neither slavery nor anti-slavery" but
al the same time Judgu Williams kille
himself politically wiih bis own party by
publishing a strong, outspoken, manly free
State ariitle. The platform on which their
candidates are now runniiit; ia as ultra
pro slavery as any fire cater could desire,
and yet tho wool so completely covers tbe
eyes of some pretended democrats that they
cannot see it. Their candidate for Gov
ernor toted for slavery, and declares his
wish to bo able to buy and aell his fellow
men. (J 'over, who pretends to be a free
State man, would have about as much in

in Wahington as thai much lir bark
Their Senators fiom Oregon, if they should
succeed in electing llieni, will bow down to

days old when he died.
The supposed time of Mr. Benton's
death was 7 : 33, though he glided off so
gently that it may have been a few minutes
earlier. Last evening, when Mr. Apple

At times through the night he was seized

which superinduce this course. Attention
to matters of personal cuicern prevented
our participation in tho cnuvuss before the

wu found that the impression bad become
general that a portion, if not nil ihoe com
posing the R-quiblican ticket bad, or weuld
be, withdrawn. This iinpress'on has been
so industriously piup'iguled by interested
pariies, especially in Southern Oregon, as
no doubt to deprive, the ticket of its princi.
