1ST Tho Oregon Sentinel comes to hand
considerably enlarged. The cditoriul force
has 'also been doubled, and we may now
look for a bolder push toward what the
Sentinel has all the time merited to be
the organ of the party. Col. TVoult says
" We have associuted with as Mr. Wra,
Robinson, who is well known iu this sec
tion of country as a round, rcliublc, pro-
slavery democrat." We Lave always ad'
mired the honesty and candor of the Sen
tincl In hanging out its true colors.
advocating modern democracy, it bus never
tried to deceive its party by a doughface
' ncithcr-slavcry-nor-ant!slavcry ' policy.

has been woven from pure Congo wool,
black as night, and a fit emblem of the
principles of the slave-breeding democracy,
Unlike tho Jacksonville Heruld, which ad
Tocatcd a frco Stnte and then voted for
slavery, or the Times, which advocated
neither and feared to vote for cither,
even Czapkny's organ, which had a Hack
side for one wing and a pale side for tho
other the Sentinel has been consistently
black outside and in, both theoretically and
practically. It has fearlessly planted itself
alongside of tho Administration doctrine,
that freedom Is ' sectional' and slavery ' na
tional' that the Constitution carries slave
ry into a Territory despite the wishes of
the people, Congress, or the world that
squatter sovereignty is a humbug and thut
Kansas, with a pro-sluvcry constitution
forced upon her by fraud, . perjury, and
ballot-box-stuffing, was fully prepared to
enter the Union with forty thousand iahnb
itnnts; whereas, with a free constitut.on
fairly chosen by tho people, she was not
qualified for admission with less than ninety
three thousand Inhabitants that the polit
ical opinion of tho Supreme Court in the
Drcd Scott case, in reference to the uncon-
stitutionulity of tho enactments of the same
men who made tho Constitution, is the law
of the land, and every doughface Is ex
pected to off with his hat and drop on his
mnrrow-betics beforo Toombs, leading the
ran of his cofUc-gnng of three hundred
slaves over the hallowed ground even of
Bunker Hill, on his way to U. S. Territory
.once sacred to freedom, to settle down by
the poor white luborcr, and reduce liis
wages from two dollars to four bits a duy,
Such are some of tho gems of the creed of
this modern democratic party, fairly and
honestly stated, and those who aro really
. democrats as understood at Washington
City, would do well to patronize the Sen
tincl, which will always dish out to its read
ers the pure juice that runs from the South
ern wine-press, trod by nullifiers with gar
ments baptized in blood, and for 60und and
reliable democracy will ulwnys say to its
' Ilark ! from (lie Toombs," &0.
The Unio.v in Danger. Gen. Adair of
Astoria has published a severe letter in the
Sentinel, proving that Cznpknys ' organ is
not a democratic paper, as it has failed to
take sides with the Iiccompton policy of
Buchanan, and lias rather stood between
Douglas and the Administration, with its
usual milk-and-water policy on distracting
Issues. In speaking of the fealty due to
the Administration policy by every paper
belonging to the pnrty, the General asks:
" Have yon made any defense of its lead
ing measures ami policy f If you have, I
would be glud if you would direct my at
tention to tlio particular leader, article,
paragraph or extract in w hich you have
manifested your devotion. I will point
you to a numlx-r in which yon have not
only signally failed, but where you have
deserted your post and been found in the
ranks of the eucmy. So lately as January
5th, an extract is copied from Forney's
Tress into tho Oregon Statesman, bitterly
denunciatory of the President's Kansas pol
icy, and yon, sir, add a recommendation
that the Constitution be sent back to the
people for ratification. I give the extract:
' We think,' says the editor of the Oregon
Statesman, 1 that the better way to disjiose
of it, would le to incorporate a provision,
submitting the constitution to the people of
Kansas, and send it back to them; uo peo
ple should hare a Constitution forced non
them without an opportunity of declaring
whether or not they want ft.' i
Now this asking the Agr.t to. 'make a
d'fenst of measures and policy,' Is indeed
cruel. It Implies that ho hits the ability
to muke an argument. For shame, Gen
eral! why didn't you catec-hlae him thus
" Have you ever blackened and blue
guarded Douglas and Ills follower as
democrat with your modicum of brains
onght to have done f Show me tho leader,
article, or paragraph where you hare cull
ed them 'traitors,' 'abolitionists,' 'black
republicans,' ' dinorganizers,' ' nationuW.
' gore-heads ' stink fliigers ' floating polit
ical excrement,' or fired at them any other
ammunition usually used In that ' favorito
rifle' of yours and all other reliably demo
cratic guns." The suggestion thut it would
have probably been well enough to let the
people of Kansas choose their own const!'
tution, Is, we admit, a very heinous offense
for a democrat.
The following Is the concluding part of
the General's letter:
" As you are pleased to announce that
'you have the fullest assurance that the
new delegation in Congress will enter hear
tily upon tins work of 'weeding out:" al
lulling to my removal, I avail myself of
tins lust occi 8;on, as 1 liope, of addressing
you, to re-assure you that I not only did
not rote for you at the June election, lust
past, but thut I hare not repented of that
omission, and now add to it, with the ut
most deliberation, the additionul postivc
offence, in order 'to muke assurance doubly
sure' with you, of discarding your organ ?
tho Oregon Statesman, from the . list of
newspapers for which I subscribe; and to
say lurtlif r, tlmt I Uesiro to bo ' weeded
out' of any party that ymi can control, and
Uy any delegation In Congress, that yoii
can command. You will please forward
your account for my subscription, and dis
continue the Statesman to my .order and
address.'' , , " '
This looks as though tho General was in
rather a bad humor. It is to be hoped
that upon mature reflection ho will muke
acknowledgments to tho Agent for not
voting for him, resume his ' subscription,
and do all other acts that arc expected of a
democrat ' who is anxious to 'save tho
Union.' .
FoncB of Example. A correspondent

abroad,' and discovered that several farmers
in Washington Territory have planted out
young orchards, some of which are begin
ning to bear, soliloquizes thns to himself
" Well, I will go home, if not a better
man. a wiser one. Ninety-one trees in
Mr. Bouney'g orchard! I will have the
big firs torn up, and I think every hole
they leave will hold half a dozen fruit trees.
So I hopo to have on orchard yet."
We admire the pluck that would attack
a forest of ' big firs', which being demolish
ed, ' every holo they leave will hold half a
dozeq fruit trees.' The thing can be done,
however, with the perseverance and stiekto-
ativeness of Jones nt'the bead of the Tort-
land canyon. ' Years ago we passed his
place, when he had barned down whole acres
of giant firs, and reduced their limbs to ashes.
The long, charred, aud black trunks lay
across each other at every angle, rearing a
formidable breastwork in front of his bach
elor domicil, and leaving open ground
enough underneath to raise a crop-of pota
toes. Jones told us that he sold the pota
toes for enough to pay for clearing off the
fallen timber. ,. We never passed that
place, and saw him emerging from his pota
to patch on all fours, looking as black and
diabolical as though fresh from the place
we road of, and with his. bread-hooks bent
backward, rigidly set almost at right angles
with the arms, from long using them to
grabble'', potatoes, but what it gave us a
never-to-be-forgotten lesson in perseverance.
We hope, our Washington Territory friends
will nil take tho Argus and Oregon Far
mer.'and, after rending of Jones's example,
go and uo likewise.' Industrious people
in tho prairie, however, can find enough
to do without coveting Jones's place. ' "
Can Fern be Killer. We have heard
many varieties of opinion expressed npon
the possibility of killing fern. It has been
mooted question for the last ten years,
with probably a majority of disputants on
the negativo, We propounded the inter
rogatory to a Yorker named Root In 1849.
His answer was 1 Yes, anything that grows
can be killed by cutting off the tops, if you
cut them off often enough.' Others have
uggested that thorough summer-fallowing
would kill It. We once plowed a small
patch in August and killed more than
three fourths of it at one plowing. Mr.
John Smith of Albany informs ns that he
as killed tho fern in his orchard by hoeing.
The tops have been cut off every week du
ring the summer (Jhirtccn times in all),
and the fern is dead. : A neighbor of his,
Mr. Lincoln, served his orchard thus
two ! years ago, and all the fern was
effectually destroyed. By ' continually
cutting off the tops, the remaining buds on
tho roots are induced to send up shoots for
atmospheric nourishment, and when the
last bud has sent up its shoot the root mnst
die. Let some one tako a patch of smooth
prairie and mow it close to the ground ev
ery week during tho summer, and we be
lieve he can sell the fern that crows on it
fter that for hay. Our fern land is said
to be the best we have, suffering less from
the drouth, and the information we have
given. in this article if correct (and we have
no doubt of it) will be worth much to many
of our suberiler8. - ;
Wool. The Woollen Factory at Salem
has resumed operations. The price of wool
is such (15 cents) that sheep raising is no
object, and we hear many offering to sell
their flocks. Sheep (ewes) bare fallen
from t) to $6 per head, and will probably
be much lower another year. '' -' " ' "
Oregon. The organs of black democ
racy In Oregon, ouo and all, seem to think
tlmt Oregon will not be admitted into tho
Union for long years, because Kunsas re
jected slavery, and still they have no word
of condemnation for the party in power
which holds us at arm's length for this rea
son. They still hare the audacity to tell
their diijiej thut 'our party ain't a pro
slavery party,' and Instead of raving aud
cursing as they would if it was the Repub
lican party thut was thus dealing with us,
they think It Is all right. They snivel and
slobU-r terribly because now and then a
Republican In Congress is unwilling to rote
for tho admission of a Stute tolerating sla
very or polygamy, but when prominent
men of their party voted agulnst the ad
mission of California because, ns Senator
Brown of Mississippi said, it ' was a tree
State,' and when tho whole party together,
embracing the nigger-drivers of the South
and the driven-niggers of the North In Con
gress, band together to crush out the liber
ties of tho people of Kansas because they
will not have slavery, and kick Oregon
away as she applies for admission, becauso
Kausas has refused to bo bribed by the
Administration, these same ' self-sold, soul
hired and scorned IscarloU' meekly bend
their backs to tho lush of their firc-cating
masters, and snivel out their assent to the
justice of the whole thing. One of the or
gans which strongly advocated tho accept
ance of our constitution by tho people, has
now made the discovery that this same con
stitution is too defective and rotten to build
a State government upon, and that It is best
for Oregon to remain out of the Union just
as the fire-eaters have decreed ! ! Isn't ' de
mocracy' a jewel ?

some of our farmers to build long cattle

The London Lancet says, that to
determine the period of life which furnishes
tho greatest number of insane persons, it is
sufficient to bring together the records,
made np under different circumstances.
One of these, made at the Bicctre, France,
where poor men only are received, another
at the Salpctrie, a hospital for poor wo
men, the third, an establishment devoted
to the wealthy, have been examined, and it
appears that the age which , furnishes the
greatest number of insane, is for men, that
from thirty to forty years, while for wo
men it is that from fifty to sixty years.
The ages which furnish the least, for both
sexes, childhood, youth, and advanced age.
Among women insanity appears earlier
than among men, indeed from twenty to
thirty years of age. The rich are more
subject to insanity in proportion than the
poor. -

r.D. or Allocs Dear sir: My attention waa
called tome time aro to an article in the Standard
lined U. v. Walling, ronectins upon me for an
llezed dereliction of duty in regard to the famoua
roar pound pear winch was entrusted to me Inst
full by George Walling, whilst on my way to the
State, to be left with the President of the Nation
al Agricultural Society in Washington City. The
article to which 1 now allude, although it contained
groundless and uncatled-ior attack upon me, I
then thought was unworthy of notice, as Mr. Wal
ling had never yet sought ine out or written to me
for any eiplnnation In regard to what appeared
mysterious lo him. Since that time, I have been
informed that Mr. V. ia orally givinir the imprea-
tion to his friends that I had not only been guilty
of negligence in not having the pear more speedily
conveyed to Washington, but that 1 had made
money out of it, either in exhibiting it for pay or
from the aale or photographio sketches. Alter
having heard of the above, I think it nothing but
right to make a full statement of the whole matter.
Last till while at Miiwaukie on my way east with
my family, Mr. Walling, who then waa a stranger
to me, aud a man whom I should not now proba
bly know if I should meet him, requested me to
ike a mammoth pear weizlung four pounds to
Washington City for him, and leave it with the
President of the National Agricultural Society.- I
told him that 1 would take it and do the best with
I could. I had it carefully packed in a box with
cotton, and everywhere, both by steamboats and
stage, when I waa absent, my wife always took
charge of it and guarded it with a vigilance that
could not have been exceeded if that little box had
contained all the wealth of Mr. Walling in gold.
Upon reaching San Francisco, I virited the interior
of California to see my friends, and carried Ihe
pear with me, never daring to leave it behind for
fear of some accident to it. I exhibited it on many
occasions to friends, always charging them to han
dle it with the greatest care. My wife generally
held it ii her own hand while exhibiting it. I nev
er got one cent fur showing it, neither do I believe
that anybody ever did after it had gone out of my
possession. After I had at length given out going
east, I sent the pear from I one City to Mr. Gnshee,
