It is somewhat encouraging to us to per
severe in our efforts to disseminate truth
when wc are finally cnubled to extort such
a confession on the above from a blockhead
whom no person but oursilf (we glory not
of ourself) has been nblo to bout a single
fuct into. Wc have shown over and over
again that all Hint has been done of uecount
toward niuking provision for the payment
of the war debt, beside building the Pa
cific Railroad, wan done by the " Repub
lican Confess," presided over by Speaker
Bunks. We have also aspired our readers
that the only hojie we could reasonably eu
tertuin for the future was in a Republican
administration. Note the cli(tie organ
places the payment of the war debt " three
years from this dute," which will be the
seventh month of the Republican adminis
tration which in all probability will be in
augurated in 18G1. Xow that Jo Lane
has pocketed that $17,000, and his demo
cratic coadjutors in " Union-saving" have
realized nearly a cool hulf million stolen
from the Treasury by the Fort Snelling and
Willett's Point swindles, a good opening is
made for investing their democratic funds in
war scrip at about fifteen cents to a dollar,
wc shall expect to hear the whole demo
cratic press laboring to depreciute war
scrip by putting its payment as fur off as
possible. Let it be remembered that when
thesfl organs were trying to elect Jo Lane
they were publishing with the fullest en
dorsement such speeches of his as the fol
lowing: " 1 you will tied me as your Delegate,
God blest your touh, I'll have the war
money on it way in four monlht after
Congrett meets and the only reason J
didn't yet it before wai the black republi
ant had a majority in Congress."
t&" The Sentinel of Aug. 7 shows that
Col. TTault, the Napoleon of the Demo
cratic press in Oregon, has returned to bis
post and is wielding his pen with his usual
vigor. His determination to maintain the
position almost unanimously conceded to
him by the democracy as a leader, seems to
le evinced in his editorial, while he raps
the clique over the knuckles, and points
out their weak points thus:
" Let us inquire what firat brought abort tho or
ganization of the Democratic party iu Oregon. If
any of the ultra politicians of Uie present day
know the principal eauie, let them assign it
We, for ourself, think we know full well that the
location of the publio buildings during the sewion
of the Territorial Legislature in IbjO-51 had
much to do with the then party organization i nud
we find men who opposed Gen'l Lano in 1851,
etill opposing him."
So then a " rock-bottom democrat," ac
cording to the Colonel, is one w ho goes for
keeping the " public buildings" on the Sa
lem " basalt."
In the following manner docs the Colonel
point a significant far nt the post record:
'' In 1831, the firat timo Gen'l Lane was a can
didate for office in Oregon, there was a Salemite
run against him for Delegate to Congress, who re
ceived the support of some of the leading Demo
crats of the present day."
A Woman Brutally Whipped ix Penn

that a great excitement has been created in
Deluwaro county, Pennsylvania, by the
whipping of Joanna Conner, a refractory
member of the Mother church, by a Cath
olic priest. Mrs. C. nnido onth before the
magistrate that during her husband's ab
sence the priest came in and ordered her to
kneel, and then whipped her unmercifully
with a twisted wiro scourge. Sho finally
broke awny and ran out on the piazza, cry
ing and screaming. Ho followed, drove
her back, again mado her kneel, and
whipped her with this instrument of tor
ture till welts . were raised all over her
breast and arms as large as her finger, with
the blood here and there oozing out of her
lacerated skin, lie then ordered her to
bathe the wounds in salt water, and say
nothing about it. The priest hud becu ar
rested by tho authorities.
The priest being a .sound and reliable
democrat, of course tho party organs here
ore very mum nbout the affair. We won
der, however, that Lano's mulatto has not
copied the article, changing the word Cath
olic to " Methodist," and giving it some
thing such a heading as this: " Anothor
of the 8,000 signers turned up! Damna
ble exhibition of black republican philan
thropy! Diabolical outrage, on a woman
by an infernal black republican abolitionist!
A lovely female horribly mangled by a
political parson," &c, Ac. As the whip

priest, however, theso faithful organ-grinders
seem so impressed with the idea that it
was probably done to " save the Union,"
that they dare not even mention it

Groanino. The X. Y. Herald, (ad.
niln.) in ouo of its usual wise articles prog
nosticating the future of political parties,
thus reluctantly concedes the low estate
into which tho slave-breeding democracy
has been brought by tho policy of Buclmn
" At the same tint, we must out overlook the
fact that in coatequtuce of Uie treacherous and
mutinous pruoeodings of party leaders and cliques
in both houses of Congress during the late session,
this regular democratic party has been reduced to
that eiireinily of weakness which renders it doubt
ful whether, this dsy, it could command a posi
tits popular majority in any one Plate of all tba
thirty-two which now compose the Union.
" We have already ihown that, from all the ex
isting facta and signs of the limes, the probabiliUes
of tlis approaching elections for Uie neat Congress
are decidedly in furor of an opposilioa majority."
We think, ourself, that it is about time
for the jicople to begin to look into the af
fairs of the present dynasty, which even
Toombs, an administration democrat, and
John B. Iluekin, a Douglas democrat, both
rcccutly declared was the most corrupt
government on earth."
When the X. Y. Herald sees from "the
signs of the times aud existing fucts" " prob
abilities" of a change of rulers, honest men
onght to be encouraged to hoiie that under
divine Providence tho fullness of the time
has come tltut was allotted by Heaven for
the shura democracy to so dcvclojtc itself
before the American people that its very
name would be odious to their children's
children down to tho tenth generation.
I3T We notice that few fields of wheat
hove been cut in this valley the present har
vest which are free from smut. In some
fields full hulf of tho heads were smut.
There is no excuse for raising smut in place
of wheat while vitriol will cffectuully pre
vent it. Wc hear furmers complaining about
hard times and being too poor to take a pa
per, while the poverty generally comes of mis
management. We have always contended
that it was just as easy to be rich as poor
in fact we believe it is easier. Let us ci
pher a litle and see.
There is farmer Y in Yamhill who raised
500 bushels of smutty wheat this summer.
Owing to the smut, be is able to get only
00 cents a bushel, which makes $450.
Now this same 500 bushels would, if it had
had no Btnut in it, have made by weight
520 bushels, which at $1,25 a bushel would
have amounted to $050. The slovenly far
mer upon examining bis books in the fall
finds they stand thus in account with his
By 500 bus. smutty wheat sold at 00c $450
The thrifty farmer who lives adjoining
and had the same amount of land in wheat
finds his books stand thus:
By 520 bushels of good wheat sold
for $1,25, $050
Deducting cost of vitrioling seed, 7
leaves a balance of $043
This amounts to just $103 more than his
neighbor received for the same- labor. The
difference is that one applies his labor judi
ciously and the other injudiciously. Now
suppose that he beats his neighbor as much
in applying his labor to raising stock, fruit,
ic, lie will find that at a low calculation
he realizes $300 a year more from his labor
than his neighbor does, aud works no hard
er, but lives a little better, besides spending
considerable tune in reading. This extra
$300 a year amounts in thirty years to the
comfortable littlo sum of $9000, all of
which he has made over and above what
his neighbor has by using a little head work,
and applying his labor judiciously.
It's just as easy to be rich as to be poor.
The new steamboat " Relief," built
by Casscdy, Athey, Sturtcvant, O'Longh
lin, and Singer, made her trial trip to Port
hind last Saturday. She is a very neat,
commodious boat, and in speed promises to
exceed tho expectations of all. She has
reduced the price of possnge to Portland to
$1, and of freight to $3 per ton. She is
manned by an obliging set of officers, and
has a profitable, future before her. She
crosses the Clackamas Rapids with ease,
and will do so it is said with a foot less wa
ter than now. Sho will no doubt prove a
great relief" to tho patrons of this trade.
Jfiy It was not long ago that Govern
ment offered half a section of land as an in
ducement to young people to marry. Some
young men we believe even then failed to
avail themselves of the benefit on account
of the scarcity of ready mouey to pay the
parson's fee. All difficulties of this kind
are now obviated by a standing offer on
the part of J. B. Bean, Esq., of Yamhill
to tie the knot (provided he doesn't have
to ride over forty miles) for two beef hides
or four deer skins. Esq. B. only reserves
two hours at dead of midnight for sleep.
ne will cheerfully respond to all orders
coming at any other hours, provided they
are " accompouied by the hides."
Accident. In coming up the Molulia
at Pendleton's, eight miles south of this,
tho team of Asa Simmons, of Howell Prai
rie, became frightened and backed the wag
on over the bank, precipitating the whole
team and load down an almost perpendicu
lar declivity of some tliirty feet, breaking
the neck of a valuable mare and injuring
the wagon somewhat. The loading con
sisted of summer apples.
IS- The Sentinel says that all the pris
oners, five in number, succeeded in digging
out of the jail at Jacksonville on the 2d
inst with " no other instruments than an
old broken broomstick." The wall was
stone and some three feet thick. That be
ing the fact, the woman's weapon must take
higher rank among implements. Tho op

Arrival or tub Mail. The U. S.

Such was the force of tho storm that the
Agamemnon was so, badly strained that the
Captain thinks ho could not have kept her
afloat two hours longer if the storm had
not subsided. The American eteamers
stood tho gnle well. The sqnudron had fi
nally reached the middle of the ocean in 16
duys, and made two unsuccessful attempts
to lay the cable. On the second attempt
they succeeded in laying about forty miles,
keeping up telegraphic communication ev
ery fifteen minutes. The communication
suddenly ceased Sunday morning, June 27,
showing that -the cable had parted. The
Niagara immediately returned to tho start
ing point and was waiting tho return of
the Agamemnon iu order to splice aud
and make another effort. It was conjec
tured on board the Niagara,' tho American
steamer, that tho breuk was caused by a
kink in the wire on the Agamemnon, the
British steamer, produced by the shuffling
about of the coil during the gulc. The offi
cers on board the Niagara were in hopes
that they would succeed in laying the cable
yet. It is however doubtful about their
success this time. That American and Eng
lish enterprise will yet overcome all obstacles
and complete this stupendous undertaking,
we have no doubt.

JST Gen. J. II. Lane, who was charged
with the murder of Jenkins at Lawrence,
Kansas, was discharged Juue 80th. The
decision of the Court was this:
" In making out a cose against the defendant, it
was necessary, first, to prove that a murder had
been committed ; and, secondly, by Gen. Lane.
The prosecution had failed to establish the first.
Tho Court were unanimously of the opinion that
no murder had been committed ; and, aa the Ter
ritory having failed to establish this primary fact,
the only charge contained in the affidavit, the de
fendant, Gen. Lnue, was accordingly discharged."

Fire. Last Saturday night at about
nine o'clock a building in the rear of Gib
son's saloon was discovered to be on fire.
It was partially filled with straw, as it had
been used for an ice house. A few buckets
of water extinguished the flames, although
the engine was on the ground in an incredi
ble short space of time. Some suppose tho
fire was produced by spontaneous combus
tion, some that it was the work of an incendi
ary, while others think that some drunken fel
low must have gone in there for repose " with
a pipe lit.". ,

Shot. Charles McLelland was killed

from a pistol in the hands of Ephraim Cox.
McLelland aud Cox have long been at outs

Washinuton, March 38, 1813. j
An eminent member of the House of Commons
thus states tlieHritinh claim, and his statement if
acquiesced in and adopted by the firat Ministry of
the Crown i
" The claim of this country is fur the right of
our cruisers to ascertain whether a merchant ves
sel la justly entitled to the protection of the flag
which she may happen to have hoisted, such ves
sel being in circumstances which rendered her lia
ble to the suspicion, firat that she was not entitled
to the pioteclion of Uie flag and, secondly, if not
i milled to it, she was, either under tho laws of
nations or the provisions ef treaties, subject to the
supervision and control of our cruisers."
As we understand the general and settled rules
of publio law in respect to ships of war sailing un
der the authority of their Government, " to arrest
pirate aud other publio offenders," there is no rea
son wby they may not approach any vessel de
scried at sea for the purpose of ascertaining their
real characters. Such a right of approach seems
indispensable for the fair and discreet exercise of
their authority) and the use of it cannot be justly
deemed indicative of any design to insult or injure
those they approach, or to impede them in their
lawful commerce. On the other hand, it is as
clear that no ihip it, under tuck circunutanetu
bound to lit by, or wait the approach of any othtr
ikip. She is at full liberty to pursue her voyage
in her own way, and to use all necessaiy precau
tions to avoid any suspected sinister enterprise or
hostile attack. Her right to the free us of the
ocean is as perfect as that of any other ship. An
entire equality is presumed to exist. She may use
any precautions directed by the prudence or fears
of her officers, either a to delay, or Uie progress
or course of her voyage.
It appears to the government of the United
Slates that the view of this whole aubjeel which i
the most naturally taken, is also, the most legal,
and most in analogy with other cases, British
cruisers hare a right to detain British merchant
ment for certain purposes ; and they have a right,
acquired by treaty, to detain merchant vessels of
several other nations, for the same purposes. But
they have no right at all to detain an American
merchant vcsmI. This, Lord Aberdeen admits in
the fullest manner. Any detention of sn Ameri
can vessel, by a British cruiser, is, therefore, a
wrong a trrspaw ; although it may bo done under
the belief that she was a British vessel, or that she
belonged to a nation which had conceded the right
of such detention to the British cruisers, and the
tresspass, therefore, an Involuntary tresspass.
The government of the United States ha fre
quently made known Its opinion, which it now re
peats, that the practice of detaining American ves
sels, though subject to just compensation, if such
detention afterwurd turn out to have been without
good cause, however guarded by instructions, or
however cautiously exercised, necccssarily leads to
serious incouTtuicuce and injur-. These deten
tions, too, frequently irritate individuals, cause
warm blooJ, and produce nothing but ill effects
on Uie amicable relations existing between the
countries. We wish, therefore, to put an end to
them, and to avoid all occas'ons for their recur
rence. The government of Uie United States, while it
has uot conceded a mutual right of visit or search,
as has been done by the parties to the quintuple
treaty of December, 1841, dote not admit that,
by the lata and practice of nation, there it any
tuch thing at a right of titit, dittinguithed by
well kntvn rultt and definition! from the right
of ttarch. It does not admit that visit of Ameri
can merchant vessels by BriUnh cruisers is founded
on any right, notwithstanding the cruiser may sup
pose such vessels to be British, Brazilian, or Por
tuguese. At the same time, the government of the Uni
ted Stales fully admits that its flag can give no im
munity to pirates, nor to any other than to regu
larly documented Amcricau vessels. It was upon
this view of Uie whole cuse, and with a firm con
viction of the tiuth of these sentiments, that it
cheerfully assumed the duties contained in the
treaty of Washington ; in the hope that thereby
cause of difficulty and of difference might be alto
gether removed, and that the two powers might be
enabled to act concurrently, cordially, and effect
ually for the suppression of troffio which both
regarded aa a reproach upon the civilization of the
age, and at war with every principle of humanity
aud every Christian sentiment.

family and four other men started to tba

ing. Their little son Frank, som, nto.
years old, and the deceased remained at
home. The boys concluded to play " hid
and seek." Albert went into the horn
and Frank remained outside. A pistol
was on the fire-board, which Albert got
and went to the door; and Immediately tba
report of the pistol and a scream were
heard bv Frank, who ran to the wounded
boy and bore him into the room, and in a
few moments he expired.
On examiuing the body, we found that
the ball penetrated the left hand, and the
contents of the powder followed the bill
The cap on tho tube struck his right thumb'
and niaxlo Its murk In the flesh of that hand!
The ball struck his body, on the left breast,
and entered just above the nipple, uu
ranged upward, bat did not come out of
his body. No other marks were on his per.
son. As none were at homo but tho two
boys, we deem it advisable to make the
foregoing statement, that the public my
know the fucts in tho case.
Wo deeply sympathize with the friend
of the deceased. His bereaved parents
arrived to-day, to behold the lifeless form
of their darling boy, cut off from life in a
moment. " Of such is the kingdom of
heaven." Earth has lost a child Heaven
has gained an angel,
