" The Struggle of to-day is not altogether for
A CALL TO THE UNION MEN OF LANE
COUNTY.
Union men of Lane county, the time has come
lor action. Your June election is but a few
months distant. No definite plan has yet been
made publio which friends of the Union, wheth
er Democrats or Republicans, are certain of con
cert of action. Vital interests are at stake.
The true issue is Union, with all its blessings ol
peace, of law and order, or disunion, witli its
anarchy, its outrage and its blood. We appeal
to every loyal citizen lay aside your old issues,
your old jealousies ; and come up to the pre.
cinct'i election of the delegates to the County
Convention like brothers. Let us hear the voice
of the people ; " The voice of the people is tho
voice of God." To Republicans we say, let
your acts of devotion to your country s need
not be surpassed by mere empty sounding
words. Come up like true Union men that you
are to the rescue. To Democrats we say, show
that the magnanimity with which you have come
to the aid of tho Administration, the Constitu
tion and the Government, is still as noble in it
constancy as in its magnanimity.
Come one ! Come all ! Go to your precincts
and elect delegates to the county Convention,
The precinct elections to bo held tho first Mon
day in February, and the county Convention on
the fourth Saturday of February, at tho Court
House in Lugene City, lhe county Convention
to nominate the county ticket, and elect dele
gates to the btate Convention.

' Remarks. We have published this call at the
request of a great many whom we know to be
true Union mbn. Aud wo do not hesitate to do
so because we aro well aware that this is tho
only course possible for us to take with any hope
of success. And this we have every rcaso'i to
believe will insure a complete victory over the
secession sympathizers, at our next June election.
Friends, Republicans, Union Democrats, do wo
hear a dissenting voico from this call? Not a
inong Union men we hope, not among Republi
cans we are certain. Is there a man among us
so lost to his country's interest as not to be wil
ling to forego the pleasuro of a more party tri
umph for the sake of tho Union ? Then Jet that
man acknowledge that he has outlived his true
patriotism. Is there a man among us who can
not come up to the poll hnd vote for tried and
known Union men, regardless of what other pro
clivities such men may possess? We trust there
is not. And therefore, friends of the Union, wo
must earnestly urge upon you to respond to tliis
call with nn alacrity which shall bp the exponent
of your love for tho old stars and stripes. For
in our opinion, upon this call hangs the hopo of
Lane ounty, and upon this course tho hopo of
Oregon. ' We aro aware that in issuing this call
we will incur the disploasuro of disunioiiists
whoso policy is to see two Union tickets in the
field, but we have faith jhat tho integrity and
good sense of Union mon, throughout tho State
will prompt them to act In harmony with us, as
we have commncod thus early at home upon
a plan winch we think cannot fail to meet the
hearty approbation of evory loyal citizen of the
State.
Persons who feel themselves interested in tho
establishment and support of our enterprise ar,e
requested to send in their names without delay.
We have established a pretty extensive ex
change with different journals, and wo aro st'll

LETTER I'OM CL.tCKA3I.lS COUNTY.
Needy, Dec. 27th, 1S01.
d. Statesman : I see, as the time approaches
for tho election of our State officers and mem
bers of the Legislature, that there are thoso that
would divide the Union vote of our State, at our
next election, in order to serve some personal
or party purpose. How short si'dited, forgetful
or selfish they must be. Who drove from pow.
sr that old traitor, Joe Lane? Who elected
others that were true men, to tho United States
Semite ? Was it not the Union vote of the
State ? And shall we now divide our strength
and invite our common enemy' the disunionists,
to make one more desperate struggle to gain tho
ascendency, that they might fill tlie ollices, send
Lane and Stark to the Senate ond transfer Ore
gon into tho hands of those traitors, Davis & Co.?
Shall we bo thus blindly l.d astray, and fail
to perform our duty, to satisfy the ambitious
designs of demagogues? Never! No! Never!
Let us have but one ticket, and that a Union
ticket ; the very best men in the State to fill it,
then our election is no doubtful matter. And
are not Lincoln, McClellan, Crittenden, Blair,
Johnson, Dix, Holt, and a host of others united
as one man for tho preserve tion of the Union,
and how wo applaud their patriotism. Did not
the publio mind point to McClellan oi the Com.
mauder-in-Cliiuf on tho retirement of Soott, and
will not public opinion point to tho men in
the Stato and several counties, that should com
pose our State officers and Legislature ? Then
why divide the Union vote at the next election
to satisfy any person or party ? Let every
man resolve that ho will go into no party organ
ization, but the olio for his country.
I. S VINSON
Sensible talk ; and we trust that no real Union

which is a reflection of the sentiment of every
loyal citizen ir Oregon, li iajtho imperative
duty of all Union men to work shoulder to shoul
der in this campaign. We cannot afford to di'
vide our forces and give tho traitorous "peace"
men the ascendency. As we valuo our homes
and our country we cannot ulford it. for their
triumph would be equal to tho inauguration of
civil war iu this Stat3. Then in the namo of
God, why should we bo wasting our timo in use
less cavil about party predilections ; we have
but one coursp to follow, and that course is
marked out tom by the voice of the people ml
the cardid judgment'of tho Administration. Re
ally thero is but two parties existing in Oro
gon, as well as in other States, the administration
parti, and the opposite thereto. It the party
which is now prosecuting tho war in support of
the Federal Government, is a Union Democratic
parti, so are we. If it is a Douglas parti, so
are we. If it is a Republican party, so are we.
Whatever may betide we are for the Union.
Wo are bound to support nono but Union mon,
and as a most conclusive test, wo shall require
our candidates to support the Administration in
tho prosecution of the war, until an honorable
and unequivocal victory over secession shall

The Stone Fleet. A fleet consisting of.
twenty-five old whaling vessels, 8,377 tonago in
the aggregate, laden with stone, sailed from New

Tho object of tho expedition is to seal the harbors

Two tons of cofleo.wero lost. Hut as the old

sated for the breach by tho discovery of gold in
Scottsburg. Several dollars had been panned

LETTER FROM FREEDOM
Freedom, Lane County, Dec. 24, 1861.
Editor Republican : As there is at this timo
an effort being made to organize a " Union"
party with the obvious purpose of destroying
the Republican party, and of wheedling Repub
licans into the silly belief that they are not, or
have not been, Union men, to the end that a few
designing men may rule the State at the fearful
expense of tho just claims of the peoplo, who
are now justly in'powerf I, as one of the peo
plo, purpose to inquire into this matter. First,
what is the necessity for organizing a new party
under tho cognomen of a Union party, when the
veriest tyro in politics knows full well that the
Republican party is most emphatically a Union
party ? Secondly, what is the object of this
movement, it it bo not to disorganize the Re
publican party, and triumph over us by strategy. .
Thirdly, what will be the result to which tho new
or.-anization will tend. In my humble opinion
to admit tho necessity of organizing anew party
on the Union issue alone, is either to admit that
we lack faith in the Republican party, or that we
have no confidence in the sincerity of Union men
outsido of our present party organization, believ
ing them to be more afraid of us than of the
wily "peace" men, who are known to be effect
ive abettors of secession. Such admission I am
not ready to make. 1 hold that union-loving
men, wherever we find them, are men of sense
and moral integrity. That the Administration
party to which we belong is the true Union par
ty ; that men who aro tor tho Union and the en.

of such movement must eventually ultimate in
the establishment of two factions moro equally
balanced in power than are the Republicans and
extreme Doftglas men now, which would give
the soft " peace" men the power, which the es
tablishment of a new organization is proposed to
obviate. It may be asked how will such factions
arise in the advent of a new partyorganization.
1 answer, as the most simple and natural result.
A large majority of the liepublican party know
ing themselves to be, and ever to have been,
Union men, cannot at once pursuade thenrlelves
to break off from tho name under which they
have rallied, and Inbored, and triumphed, merely
to gratify the whims, of thoso who stand upon

favor the Uukm movement, with the Union

Comments. Tho above liter, we doubt not,
represents tho present l houghts of a good many
very honest and sincere Republicans. To all
such wo would any entertain tiu jealous fenrs v
about your party organization, for that is not the .
object of attack ; neither will we propose tr
or countenance the organization of any new
party further than the spontaneous uprising of
the people, and the harmonious action of all
loyal citizens in behalf of our country in its
present perilous situatioy; If you are Rcpubli
cans, bo Republicans still. If you aro Demo
crats, be Democrats still. But for the sake of
all the endearments that attach to our homes and
country, let us lay aside tho discussion of all .
minor subjects of contention between Union
men, until we shall have secured the one grand
object, the attainment of which is everything to -us.
That object we need not tell you is the
preservotion of our national Government. W '
are admonished to this position by the noble"
precedence of our brethren in Ohio and other
States; and further, by the fact that many ol -,
our enterprising Union men arc gone or going to
the northern mines, while tho lazy, inactive scum "
of disunion have not sufficient energy to carry
them beyond tho limits of the State, so that a
concert of action with all who have their coun
try's cause at heart, becomes imperatively nec
essary. With one Union ticket in the field, ahA
the victory is ours. With two we would run a
fearful hazard of defeat by tho dishonorable
" peace" men.
