C. SL Official Paper for Oregon.
. Confirmed. The nomination bj the
President of Lorenso Sawyer as Judge
of the Ninth Circuit, has been confirmed
by the Senate.
Iwauotjration. -Got. Chamberlain,
of Maine, was inaugurated at Augusta,
January 7th. In his messago the Gov
ernor pays a deserved tribute to the
memory of the late Senator Fessenden.
Lands Sold. The, Atchison, Topeka
k Santa Fe Railroad sold $650,000

Next Wednesday. The Union
Republican State Central Committee

Union Republican-State Convention for

Removed. Washington advices to
the 10th state ( the the President had
Dominated' Gen. Pred. Solomon, of Chi
cago, Governor of Washington Territory.
He is reported as a German Republican,
who served 'with distinction in the Union
army during the late rebellion. To
every Republican who desires the suc
cess and harmony of the Republican
party in Washington Territory, the news
of the removal of traitor Flanders will be
bailed with satisfaction. This is but the
commencement, and we may look soon to
see the heads of the balance of the trait
orous ring fall. (
The new Governor of Texas, General
E. J. Davis, says the Enterprise, is a na
tive Southerner, of whom his State and
party may well feel proud. When forced
to fly from Texas, early in the rebellion,
for his Union sentiments, he went to
New Orleans and reported to General
Butler, then in command of that city.
Instead of seeking for safe conduct to the
North, as many of the refugees did, he
asked for power to go back and raise a
regiment. Gen. Butler commissioned
him, and Gen. Davis returned and put
himself at the head of a force that did
signal service to the country. He is now
the first elected Republican Chief Mag
istrate of Texas.

5- Xooden Railways. A wooden rail
road Laas been laid on a new clan in Mon
treal, lad is a complete success, if report
is true; The rail is composed of upright
blocks, three and a half inches thick and
seven inches long, resting on two longi
tudinal stringers, eight inches deep, one
,oo each side, checked out or raboted an
inch deep and five inches wide, so that
the upright projects two inches above the
top of the stringers, which are bolted
together. .Such a track will bear engines
. of twenty tons weisrht. will Last a loner
a - o
time, ana wiu not cost more than one
toartn as much as iron. The greater
wiatn or tne Deanng tor the wbeels is
an important consideration. It would
not cost very much to try this plan for
street railroads.
abetter From tbe Capital.
- 5 . Salem, Jan. 12th, 1870.
Now that we have two dailies, for you
must know that Beriah Brown has com
menced the publication of a daily edition
of his Press, it seems as though ray
semi-occusional scribblings can be dis
pensed with, but I make another effort
to interest the readers of the Register.
While speaking of papers I may be
permitted to ten now mucn amusement
is made for the outsiders by the war go
ing on between the publishers of the
Statesman and Farmer. It is impossi
ble to tell yet who has the best of the
fight; but it is conceded by a majority
that the Farmer man will more than
keep up his end of the fight. It is to be
regretted that public journalists will
engage in such personalities. I can but
hope that the journals will devote their
whole attention and space, the one to its
politics, and the other to the agriculture
of the State.
Well, you are to have the whole body
of Democratic politicians witn you in
March.. 1 have no doubt that your city
Marshal will treat them with distin
guished consideration, and show them
around where the requisite fiery liquids
are dispensed. But have you heard how
the several proposed candidates sought
to further their chances of success at
the meeting of the Central Committee in
Portland ? Well, you must know that
there are many more seekers after places
than there are places to be filled. It
seems that lion. Ben. Hayden, of Polk
and Hon. L. F. Grover, of this place
are candidates for the Congressional nom
ination. Hayden being an honest and
out-spoken politician, has not concealed
dis desire tor the chance of going to
Washington. He and some friends de
sired that the Seymour vote, which all
know indicates about the true strength :
of the party, should be taken as the basis
of the representation in the State nomin
ating convention. To this Grover and
his friends made serious objection, as
that would reduce the number of dele
gates from this and other counties where
the latter expects to get votes to set him
out be tore tne people in tne coming can
vass. So you see that the unanimity
prevailing in the party so boastfully
spoken of by party organs, may be only
the thin crust over a burning volcano.
At any rate, Ben. Hayden, who has
always been ready to speak for his party
and spend money according to his means,
while the more wealthy have taken their
ease, is likely to be pushed aside to give
place to the rich man. However, the
funeral is none of ours, only I do not
like to see the working politicians im
posed upon by the monied aristocracy.
Next week the Board of Managers of
the Oregon State Agricultural Society
meets at the Secretary's office in this
city, to transact business connected with
the future of the Society.
To-day the wind has blown a gale,

Telegraphic Summary.
Successful. It would seem from
the report of Mr. John Meacham and
Tr. Win. McKay to the Salem States
man, ' that Indian ' Superintendent
Meacham has met .with good success in
bis recent" expedition to tbe Indian
' country. ' All the Mod oca were induced
to oome in, and ' all the Indians from
Goose Lake to Camp Warner also, making
ever seven hundred removed to the Kal
math Reservation. These Indians are
comfortably provided, with log . tene
ments, with abundant provisions, cloth
ing and blankets for the Winter. The
blankets and flannels were manufactured i
at the Ashland Mills, and are of excel- i
' lent quality. The great fighting chief,
Ocheo, and other chiefs, are so well sat
isfied with tkeir quarters, that they have
wqueeted permission to bring more In
dians in to Eve oa tbe reservation, and
it is thought many more will come in.
I The refractory Snakes at Camp Harney

Farrens, of Howell Prairie, received a

twoinches square of the skull was taken

boy will recover.

Paying the National Debt. !
President Grant, supported by the un
broken front of all the Treasury officers,
has earnestly recommended a continuance
of the present system of taxation until
the next Congress shall assemble. The
rapid progress made by the present Ad
ministration toward liquidating the na
tional debt has been so satisfactory that
we are not surprised at the position taken
by the President and his Cabinet. They
express a very natural desire to relieve
the country ot its financial nightmare to
the greatest possible extent during their
official terms. One of the most promi
nent features in human nature is to toil
and labor to make provision for one's
children. We are not satisfied that they
should stem the rough tide of life, and
battle their ;way through existence as
fiercely as we have done. We would
secure for them such social position and
such communal surroundings as our own
experiences indicate to be worth having.
lhis strong principle of individual nature
has been grafted into national life, and is
the corper-stone of our public school
system. It is the element which so em
phatically rebuked repudiation, and has
urged the American people to bear with
equanimity their heavy burden of taxa
tion. Justice and patriotism combine in
pleading for those who are. to come after
us, and to whose care must be delegated
the safety, honor and continuance cf the
Republic and those 'great questions of
human liberty and progress, of which it
has been the great advocate and exam
ple. , We have no right to hamper them
with the debt ot our own contracting
to tie their .bands and oppress their eu
ergies with a legacy of taxes. Had the
rebellion feund us staggering under such
a load, bequeathed by our predecessors
the Republic would now be a heteroge'
neous mass of dismembered fragments ;
a mock and derision to the whole world,
and in its ruin must have crushed out
even the semblance of liberty. It is not
enough to leave the sext generation a
united country, an unbroken nationality.
The heritage should be accompanied
with the best guaranty of permanence
of power to withstand assault and main
tain independence. No such guaranty
can be given so long as the country is
struggling under a pubuc debt of vast
magnitude. It is a sacred duty we owe
to it and to the rising generation to free
them from dangerous burden as soon as
possible. We should struggle as un
flinchingly now for its financial lib
eration as we did tor its unbroken unity.
Lvery interest in the country has in
creased enormously in value. Popula
tion is crowding upon us, and our bound
less resources developed with steadily
augmenting vigor. There is no appre
ciable limit to our capabilities, no bound
ary to our progressive aptitudes. The
public mind is cheered by tho rapidity

with which the debt is
guished. The vigilance and fidelity
evinced in the collection and disburse
ment of the public revenues cannot be
but most gratifying to the people. Since
the 4th of March last, $72,000,000 of
the debt has been wiped out, and the
whole nation feels that the taxes which
weigh so heavily on it have been faith
fully disbursed to cancel its obligations.
The returns for the last six months of
the fiscal year, ended June 30, 1SG9,
show a net gain of S2G,G62,812 over the
revenue for the same period of the pre
ceding year, and the returns for the six
months ended Sept. 30, 1869, show an
increased collection of $22,318,868 over
the like six months of 1868 ; and if the
twenty-six districts yet to be heard from
yield as much as they did last year, the
sum will be increased to nearly $24,000,
000. Commissioner Delano's report
shows that 90 per cent, et tbe revenue
is collected on a few articles which may
be regarded as luxuries, and assessments
on capital. It is certain that taxation
has not been so heavy during the last
year on several articles of great product-
- n trr, " .
lvenesa as in ioruier years, xue uupusis
have been reduced from two dollars to
fifty cents on the gallon, and the revenue
was increased irom Sy,117,uUl to o,
001,960, being a gain of $16,984,249,
while the manufacturers were relieved to
the extent of one dollar and a-half on
every gallon distilled. The tax on cigars
was reduced from $10 on the thousand,
in 1367, to $5 the thousand, and the
gain of revenue from this source was
$4,768,864. With such examples as
these, it is easy to comprehend our abili
ty to pay - the national debt' and the
steadily increasing means for its cancella
tion without distressing any interest.
That it should be done as speedily as
possible and the country freed from
such an incumbrance admits of no dis
pute. That we should shirk the duty
and hand it down -as a legacy to the next
generation is a proposition that will find
favor' with no sensible, honest or patriotic
mind. We are of the opinion that a ju
dicious reduction of taxes on several ar
ticles of universal consumption would
tend to augment their production, and
by theii'- decreased cost widely -extend
their markets. But we are not friendly
to any measure calculated to reduce the
public revenue and retard the payment
of the national obligations. S. F. Com
