The last Statesman contain! the speech
of the lute Representative, delivered lust
Saturday ut Pallas, in which lie seeks to
sot himself right before the iieople, or ra
ther to counteract ami deny the charge
which he alleges hare been made against
him. What occasion there wai for all the
(clf-glorificatiou the speech contain, we do
not know, nor hare we time to comment
upon it, but If all that Mr. 0 rarer says It
true, he ii a much more potential man, and
lioa done far more for Oregon than has been
belct-Tcd hitherto. It wua great mistake
to leave him out of the national councils,
and the Republicans in the last Legislature
who wcro willing to rote for him as Sen
ator, but whose snport he arrogantly
ipurntd, deserve mach credit fur attempt
ing to put him where his Immensely valua

unwise politician, and will never succeed or

Wc cut from the N. V. Tribune the fc
lowing comparison of the ertimatlon la
which the Wink Democratic party holds
one of its nmin supporter the foreign
vote. We hope every naturalized Demo
crat will read it:
" The Democratic party has contrived to
rule tho country for thirty years pust iiy me
aid of two classes or persons negroes anu
foreigners. It has received irreat aid both
in Congress and the t.ollego of hlectors
through the operation of that clause of the
Constitution which counts five slaves as
equal to three free men. Iiy virtue of this
provision, tho slave power always sends to
the lower House awl to the residential
College from twenty to twenty-live members
who serve as the body-guurd of the Democ
racy iu all severe conllicts. I ho Democra'
cy lias reciprocuted tho fidelity of this corps
by unwearied devotion to the interest or the
Ncgro-ocracy. Next after these durk-hned
auxiliaries, the party, in erery trial, has re
lied upon foreign rotes. Jt has generally
received them, solid and stolid, in the large
cities and towns of the Union. Again
and again have they met tho main brunt of
the listtlr, bearing the Democracy to victory
on their rhiclds. IJut, how different the
treatment which these respective auxiliaries
receive from their common ally! At the
kck of the negroproiagnuda, the Democ
racy annex Texas, war on Mexico, bully
Spain, lillilju-itiT iu Cuba and Nicaragua,
clm.se down runaway slaves, stand ready to
revive the slave trade on the seas and adoiit
a slave code in the Territories, and, cap in
hand, are eager to do any other dirty or
desiiotic job which their masters dictate.
Hut, for Teutons, Celts, and men of other
foreign races, they will do nothing except
to receive their votes. From the tone of
lass's letter it would seem that they have
less regard Tor tlicir j.uropcan auxiliaries
than for tlicir African. If a Hungarian,
who had voted the Democratic ticket stead
ily for ten years, voyages to Enrol and
fulls iuto the hands of Austria, by whom he
is pressed into tho army, and seut to fight
in Italy for Francis Joseph, it will be in
vain that he plead his American citiwnshio
at the bur of a Democratic Administration.
It will calmly look on. fold its arms, and
tell him it can do nothing for him. IJut,

The above statement is made tt) from
tho official report of the Clerk of the
House of Representatives, with the addi
tion of the probable amount of indefinite
appropriations, to pay chums, etc.. nnd the
unexpended bnlunce of npprqirin lions for
1857. The aggregate is over a hundred
millions of dollars. The expenditures of
the laovcmment under the administration
of President Pierce four years were
greater than during the first thirty years of
our existence, including the war of 1812
with Great Britain. At the rote at which
money was appropriated during the first
half of President JJnclmnan's term, the
cost Of lus aumiuistration will greatly ex
ceed that of Pierce's.
It is claimed that an increase of territory,
population, and number of States justiGes
so great nn increase of expenditure, but
such logic will hardly satisfy the people of
tho United States. They see that enor
mous extravagance has prevailed iu admin
istering the finnuciul affairs of the nntlnn
and they are disposed to hold the party iu
power responsible. They concede that the
expenditures of the Government have ncc
cssarily increased since 1823, but they do
