The Chances. Several of our Dem
ocratic exchanges seem to think there is
slight grounds for hope that the Democ
racy may win in the coining State elec
tion, provided the Republicans don't
raise "corruption fund." They charge
that the Central Republican Committee
made provisions to raise " a fund " with
which to buy Democratic votes, and they
acknowledge thaf if the cash is forthcom
ing, Republicanism will prove again vic
torious. From this it would seem that
the " leaders " have not the most un
bounded confidence, either in the "time
honored principles," the rank and file of
the party, or themselves.
Products of Goose Lake Country
-Speaking of large vegetables, a recent
arrival from Goose Lake eays ho saw i
squash, that was raised there last season
that measured four, feet in circumference,
and other vegetables were proportion
ately large. Settlers in that valley are
highly pleased with its productions and
the climate. On the 2d of January
snow was but three inches deep, and
stock was generally doing well.
Economy. The Roseburg Ensign,
learning that a Democratic campaign
paper is to be issued in that place, I and
that " Party's saloon is to be the place of
operations," thinks that " in an econom
ical point of view, this will be a wise
arrangement, as much time will be saved
that would otherwise be consumed in
traveling between the office and head
An Outrage.1 From the evidence of
Rev. T. A. Wood, it would seem that the
recent hanging of his brother, J. Jtt.
Wood, at Lewiston, by a mob, was a
flagrant outrage, and every man engaged
in it deserves and should be made to feel
the utmost extent of the law in such
cases made and provided.
Shade Trees. The Dalles City Dads
have under consideration an ordinance,
donating to property-holders of the city
the sum of fifty cents for each and every
shade tree planted as an ornament to the
streets said sums to be deducted from
road tax., This is a good idea, that
might be acted upon with benefit to
other places than Dalles City.
Sunday Bill. A member of the
California Legislature, named Betge, has
introduced into that body an amended
Sunday bill, which makes prize fighting
rank as a simple misdemeanor, punishable
by a fine of not less than 820 or more
than 500, or by imprisonment not toss
than ten days or more than three mcnths.
Prize-fighting on any other day but Sun
day, will still be considered a felony. If
this bill should become a law, we may
expect hereafter that all gladiatorial ex
ploits will come off on the Sabbath, as it
will thus be made less Criminal and more
respectable for bruisers to fight on this
day than on any other iu the calendar,
in California. Another evidence of the

Judge McAllister's severity yesterday iu

The Cleveland Herald say a Mr. Chase's

and playing it to win. it notices the sig
nificant fact that the Democratic press of
that state have suddenly become very
reticent on the subject of the fifteenth
amendment ; asserts that it has been set
tled that the ratification of that amend
uient shall bo carried by the votes of the
independent Democratic legislators
and forewarns the rank and file who are
now cursing tho "msMrer that "three
years honce they will find Mr. Chase the
Democratic candidate, aud the greatest
claim he will present for the vote of tho

Portla!TO, Oregon, Nor. 15, 1869.
Mkssrs. Eversos & Haixes, General Agents
New England Mutual Life Insurance Compa
ny, Boston :
Gentlemen On my own behalf and in the name
of my orphan children, I beg to tbank you, and
through you tne JNew England Mutual riite in
surance Company of Bos -on, for its munificence
in paying me my terminated policy on the life of
my busband. On the 21st of January, 1869,
misfortune compelled me to forego the payment
of the last premium which non-payment in any
other company would nave lost me my policy
but I am now overjoyed with the receipt of the
amount of the policy I less tbe amount of tbe un
paid premium only), thanks to tbe equity of tbe
Massachusetts Lapse Laws, that must -bless many
widows and their children. I recommend the
New England Mutual to all who would provide
against possible misfortune. I sincerely thank
you again, gentlemen, for the payment, and alio
for your generous and gentlemanly assistance in
the matter. Respectfully,
Portland, Oregon, Nov. 15, 1859.
Messrs. Eversos & Haises, General Agents of
tbe New England Mutual Life Insurance Com
pany, of Boston :
Gentlemen Having taken a lively interest in
the affairs of a large and destitute family, left
by an old resident of this city, who died Aug. 2,
1369, and who was insured in the New Enetand
Mutual Life Insurance Company, we take pleas
ure in making tho following statement for the in-
ormation of tbe public :
A. E. C. Miller wss insured by ordinary Life
Policy No. 13,054, bearing date January 21,1863.
He paid annual payments to January 21, 1868,
inclusive. ' Since then nothing has been paid.
He died August 2, 1869, over eighteen months
after the lost payment of premium, yet your
company working under the Equitable Lapse
Laws of Massacbuset!s, pays tbe widow and
orphans the whole policy, deducting only the pre
mium due ; while in all other companies doing
business here, about which we know anything.the
policy would long since have been forfeited,
By the New England Mutual, the widow has
been paid $4 650 SO. This we consider munifi
cent, more especially when we take iuto consid
eration that tbe family would not have received a
cent from any other cmnpany doing business on
this coast. This, in our estimation, is enough to
recommend this company above all others. This
is Equity, this is Mutuality. We, therefore, rec
ommend this company to the public, as tho only
company that has no forfeitures.
We herewith inclose you the acknowledgments
of the widow. Respeetfnllv, etc,,
