rcss. , i ,
in th infancy of tho Kepublic, when its foun j
ders w ere yet living, there arose a class of short (
ichted and merecna.-y demagogues, whose pnj
... . i e
udiewi forold and oppressive fonim of govern- j
mcnt, shut out from ths'ir beclouded minds the
rising light of the sun of Liberty. They opposed i
tha Fwdoral Government iu its infancy, and .
sought to overthrow tho Constitution ore its rati
fication. The same party lent their aid to Kng-
.!" wS the Revolutionary war, and sought
on ti 1 1 occasions tonUiert j tlm constitutional
authorities. They have ever been open enemies
to lie publican Government. Like an incubus
upon our fair Republic, they have ever hung
with the death gripe of despair, watching with
the vigilence of demons an opportunity to sink
our ship of State. We can trace them by their
unmistakable foot-prints from their opposition to
George Washington's Administration down to
that of Abraham Lincoln.
The first prominent outrago of that faction
after America's Independence was the attempt
to subvert the Continental Congress, and to es
tablish a monarchy. This insulting proposition
to General Washington ' to assume the regal
gown, was spurned with a lofty indignation
known only to a brave and mighty man. Since
then their infernal machinations have been held
in check by the undaunted energy of mighty
minds, until within the last few years.
Through tho intrigues of Calhoun, their dark
designs would have been attained in General
Jackson's day, but forrho Godlike firmness and
undaunted bravery of that old hero. His words
of burning eloquence spoken on that occasion
" The Union must be preserved without blood,
it that be possible ; but it must be preserved at
all Ituzards, and at any price " are still as
potent to stir up friends of the Union to its do
fence as when Old Hickory buckled on the sword
of Slate. And while such watch-words as these
animate our soldiers, Sccesh may well begin to
think her timo short.
The spirit of Disunion and deadly opposition
to our form of government, h".s been clearly vis
ible from the very foundation of the Republic,
and has 'jecn a source of unceasing perplexity
and anxiety to fourteen consecutive Presidents.
It vainly sought to fasten its murderous fangs in
the heart of our beloved Union, until the incum
bency of James Uuclmnan. The bloodthirsty
fiends of Disunion found him a fit accomplice for
tho carrying forward of their dark and diabolical
purpose. His Cabinet was selected with an eye
to their villainous plot. The infamous Floyd,
whose character as a gun thief can never admit
of the slightest suspicion of successful competi
tion, completed tho preparations for the bloody
work which JefT Davis and his minions are pros
ecuting. Would to heaven we could stop here,
and count all the foes of our country in the canif
of tho enemy. But it is not so. We must n
deceive ourselves, for there are rancorous and
bitter enemies right hero among us. They are
not pointed out merely by suspicion, but by
their own loudmouthed expressions of hatred
to tho just administration of the Government.
This villainous and blasphemous slander of our
country's fallen heroes, will reveal them to every
observing citizen. While they make the loudest
professions to bo truly Democratic, to belong to
the old and regular Democracy, they outstrip by
far tho leaders of that party in their denunciations
of" Lincoln's war policy."
Hear Mr. Buchanan's words on this point,
uttered since he found that the North were uni
ted in defiance of the infernal plot to overthrow
the Government : " This is tho moment for
action for prompt, united and energetic action
and not for the discussion of peace propositions."
lSeautil'uI words indeed, and would have sounded
much better coming from the samo source a little
Tho peace croakers of Oregon, are in this as
in everything else, behind the times. They seem
to be perfectly ignorant of the fact that their
grea prototype has long since withdrawn his as
sistance from tho rebels, and minglod his voice
in the general and patriotic proclamation : " Tho
Union must and shall be preserved at all hazards
and at any price."

TO THE KEPl'HMCAXS OF OHEtJON.
Tho riidersiiined were instructed at the last
State Convention to convene the liepublicahs of
the State, at their next meeting, at kugene City.
Events that have transpired since tho meeting
of the last State Convention, could not then be
foreseen, and issues are uow presented to the peo.
plo paramount to all issues that have heretofore
divided political parties.
Whilo we claim no right to dissolve tho Re
publican organization, nor do we see any cause
to recant any political principle heretofore held
by us, yet believing that the vital issue now before
tho people, is lhe preservation or destruction of
our institutions, we are unwilling to do anything
to distract tho Union sentiment in the coming
canvass ; and, therefore, have doomed it unwise to
call a party convention, with a view to tho sup
port of a distinctively llcpubliean ticket.
In taking this course, wo have been guided by
the expressed wishes of Uepublicaus throughout
the Slate, and an honost desire on our own part,
to avoid any barrier to tho hearty support of a
Union ticket, by the loyal voters of the State,
without regard to former political ditlerencei.
History verifies tht fact, that tho 1'athers of
our common country supposed that they had
cemented a perpetual Union ; they are only
traitors who have now attempted to overthrow
it; we, therefore, call upon one and all to rally
to the support of tho priceless inheritance be
queathed to us by tho founders of the Republic;
he that neglects for any trivial cause at this time
to testify his devotion to our common country,
a Government that has made us tho most, pros
perous and favored people on ihi; face ot the
globe, is not worthy of tho mno 0f American
citizen. We, therefore, trust to tho intelligence
and patriotism of ihe loyal people of this State,
' u) unanimity at ma coming convention
and election, their abhorrence f secession and
treason, their lovo of country and its prosperity.
We, therefore, earnestly reccominend to the
Republican voters of tho State, that without
regard to party, they should in tho coming can
vass, heartily unite in nominating and supporting
a ticket composed of Union men, who stand the
test embraced m the call herewith published.

THE ANON WILL OUT.
As a merited rebuko to the secession editors
of Oregon, who are eagerly catching up and dis
torting every sentence which may tall from the
lips of our country's heroes and statesmen hin
ting at the probable result of negro emancipation
as a forced consequence of the outrageous and
bloody rebellion of the South ; we point them to
the ominous words of l)y ron's Chief Judge in tho
council ot Venice : " Your sin hath made us
make a law which will become a precedent 'gainst
such arch traitors as would with treason mount
to tyraiiy." When we hear the cry,'" Abolition
must bo put down and the Union saved," we
say that sounds well, but curiosity prompts us to
look a little us to the source of this great noise ;
and lo, tho htiky voice and protruding ears toll
tho tale as of old. The lion skin of public senti
ment, behind which traitors attempt to hide, will
not suffice to screen them from the argus eyes of
criticism. Murder will out, and so will treason.
Aud wo have now a safe and unerring guido by
which to point out traitors to our country. Ex
pressed in fewest words it is this: every Ameri
can citizen who advises the termination of the
present war in an inglorious peace is a traitor.
Much as wo all detest war, there is not among
us a man who would bo willing to see our arms
disgraced by tin inglorious peace, whom we
would not unhesitatingly brand as a traitor.
That there are such men cnjoylrg tho common
protection, and even to some extent the immuni
ties of tho Oovcrnmcnt, no one can deny. Yet
it must be confessed, that this fact is not attribu
ted to any sympathy for such on the part of the
President Lincoln has ever shown an unswerv
ing and dignified determination to overthrow
this ty ranical usurpation of Jell Davis ii Co., to
which tho secession sympathizers of Oregon are
bound with all tho ties of sympathy and preju
dice; therefore, we are not surprised w hen we
hear them crying out oud declaiming against
" Lincoln's war." We are not surprised when
wo hear them urging the people to disregard the
policy of tho public authorities. Wo are not
surprised to hear their attempted ridicule of the
President's message. Their attempted dclama-

JUST AS WE EXPECTED.
When a Christian's conduct" is approved by
the Devil, we may rest assured the good man
has made a step outside of the path ot rectitude ;
and equally certain is , it that he treads the
straight and norrow path, when tho assaults of
his Satanic majesty are the fiercest. Ihcse
truths hold good in the political as well as in
the moral world. When rampant secessionists
rant and rage at Republicans and Democrots
who have united on that issue, paramount to all
others, the preservation of the Union, we may be
sure that it is in their fears their anger has found
utterance ; and we may be equally oertain of
our own correct position.
Therefore, when Haley or those of his ilk,
condemn us we have add i tonal evidence that we
are right. How very tender is this precious se
cessionist, of Republicans lately; ho fears for
them, that they w ill fall a prey to the merciless
wolf, Asahel Bush ; that Hush, of the clique,
will eat us poor innocent lambs all up. Tender
shepherd poor silly sheep ! What a terrible
bugbear is this same Rush. " Upon what meat
doth this scarecrow feed." Haley would have
us believe that he lives on mutton heads, liush
is supposed to control our -primary precinct
elections, our County and State Conventions.
Haley sets him up in a dazzling light with a pow
er little short of tho omnipotent, surrounded by
a host of satellites, to do his bidding. What a
compliment ho pays to us Union men. He sup
poses us to bo made up of very gullible stuff.
But to believe what Haley says, is equal to
believing that Bush told Jo Teal to tell Gov.
Whiteaker to send Ben Stark to tho Senate,
or that he was tho prinie cause of W. S. Brock's
absquatulation ; all to bring disgraco on tho im
Wo have our differences with Mr. Bush ; but
these we havo agreed to consider as minor sub
jects at present. And if after fair precinct
elections and County and State Conventions,
which must be conducted ly the people, Mr.Bush
should proye to be tho master spirit, we must
cither admit that he is the shrewdest wire-work
cr in the State, and would place himself at the
head, in spite of Haley's kind advice ; or that he
possesses the confidence, of tho greatest number
of citizens, and, therefore, is entitled to leader
Tim details of the Port Royal victory reflect
great honor on our navy. Tho bombardment
lasted five hours, aud resulted in tho utter rout
of the rebels, at least one hundred of whom were
killed. Tho secesh ladies who had come to sec
the Yankee ships sunk, had to give up their car
riages to convey the killed and wounded off the
field of defeat. " Ten thousand eager eyes be
held our flag as it was planted upon the parapet,
and who shall describe tho enthusiasm with which
tho sight was greeted 1 Cheer followed cheer
from the men-of-war, and were echoed by the
transports in the distance. Tears of joyful pride
filled many an eye; hands were cordially shaken,
heartfelt congratulations for the glorious victory
were expressed. Some, in tho exuberance of
their exultation, danced wildly and clapped their
hands till it seemed doubtful whether they would
ever cease their antics. Nor was tho ebullition
of patriotic fervor nt all decreased when the
regimental bands, with earnest feeling, ns if a
spontaneous impulse, all struck up the Star Span
