THEia Game. It ia instanced as a
fact, to disprove the assertion that all the
delegates' to the Democratic Convention
were candidates for office, that at
. least two of them were engaged in a
pleasant little game of "scven-np," in the
Court room, when the Convention was
called to order for the purpose of organ
ising. It may have been, however, that
they were playing instead of "argy lying,"
chance against chance.
Their Strong Suit. The night be
ere the meeting of the Democratic State
Convention in this city, while a large
number of delegates to the Convention
were sitting around the stove in the bar
room of a certain hotel in this city, can
t aasing the "chances" of the party in
the coming election, one of the delegates
we won't mention names made the
Strong remark that : "We've only got
to select good candidates, and adopt a i
platform that nobody can understand,
And then we'll go through all right !"

correct. It seems the steamer was disa

Then commenced the "log rolling." You

that every knot thus collected contained

'Repudiation the Only Principle of the
During the heat of the debate on the
adoption of the 8th article of the plat
form in the Democratic Convention on
Wednesday night, one of the leaders of
the party in Oregon asserted, what the
Republican journals have teen insisting
on all the time, that rejmdiation is the
only principle in the Democratic parti.
And as there was but one member in the
whole Convention CJasper Johnson, of
Curry), who denied the proposition, we
are to understand that, however the plat
form may read, laying aside all verbiage
and meaningless sentences, the only prin
cijle, the whole end and aim of the Dem
ocracy of Oregon, is flat-footed, square,
out aud out repudiation of the public
debt. Member after member arose to
give in their adhesion to the principle,
but the majority, while saying that they
were not willing to pay the national debt,
yet they were not in favor "of adopting
repudiation as a plank in the platform ;
in the language of Reed, of Multnomah,
they were "not willing to put a burden
on the shoulders of their standard-bearers
that would trample them into the
dust." The whole discussion, prolonged
for near four hours, proved conclusively
that , the xuajority if not all the dele
gates were in favor of repudiation ("can
cellation" they termed it) of the debt,
and the fear, as stated by the gentleman
from Lane, that a large portion of the
party were too honest to vote it, was the
only reason why the clause was glossed
over, so as to sound honest to the masses.
So we go into the campaign, on the au
thority ot the Democratic State Conven
tion, that Repudiation is the only princi
ple of the Democratic party ; that it has
but one end and aim dishonesty. This
we knew before, but it remained for the
great gathering of the chiefs of Democ
racy to clinch the matter, by bold and
unequivocal assertions of the fact. And
with such a platform, can the honest men
of Oregon vote the Democratic ticket ?
The enunciation of this principle was the
j last straw needed to sink the already
overloaded and demoralized party. The
death-knell of Democracy in Oregon has
No Mors Treaties. Under the bill
just completed by the House Committee
.on Indian Affairs, organizing a system of
.governing the Indian tribes, etc., no
Esore Indian treaties are to be made or
ratified. It-provides for dividing the
.territory into four districts, with one
general superintendent to each, and one
Agent for one or more tribes in charge of
-the general superintendents. Secretary
-Cox and Commissioner Parker approve
.the bill. -
Defaulter. The accounts of Col
lector Bailey, of New York, who levant
ed some days ago, are being investigated.
Vail, deputy collector, declares the ac
counts are correct, so far, while District
Attorney Pierpont says he has found a
.defalcation of $120,000, np to the pres
,ent (Marcli 21) time. The impression
.of some is that Bailey is secreted in New
York, while others think he has commit

- Democratic Importations in
Clackamas. Tho Oregonian having
asserted that the Democrats of Clack
amas had imported a large number of
voters into that county, for the purpose
of "overriding the will of the people,"
ma the Democrat has it, the Oregon City
Enterprise denied the charge, and with
jthe most unblushing effrontery charges
- that they were Republican recruits. The
Oregonian, to make its chargo good, and
- to show to what lengths the leaders of
the Democratic party of Oregon are
' ready to go, prints affidavits of some of
the very men who were imported, certi
fying that their passage money and board
bills were paid, with the express under
standing that they were to vote the Dem
ocratic ticket at the next June election
as a return for this expenditure of mon
ey ia their behalf. It ia invariably the
case, that fellows who are constantly ar
rogating to themselves all the honesty in
the country, and prate about the rascality
of their neighbors, when sifted to the
bottom are found to be the most unblush
ing and arrant of knaves.
Arrested. On the arrival of the
Portland boat on Tuesday night, on which
were a large number of delegates to the
Democratic State Convention, our worthy
Sheriff, Bob. Irvine, with two deputies,
proceeded to arrest one of the delegates
from Grant county, Mr. E. E. Turk, in
dicted by the last Grand Jury of this
county for murder. This prompt action
on tae part of our Sheriff rather took
Mr. Turk by surprise, as he has been en
joying his freedom, although under ar
rest in Grant county, the Sheriff of that
county being security for his appearance
here at the March term of the Court.
During the whole time of his arrest, as
we are informed, he was acting deputy
sheriff of Grant county. And although
under arrest for the highest crime
known to the State, the Democracy of
Grant selected him as their delegate, to
represent their interests in the State
Convention. The Democrats of Grant
will be surprised that the bretheriog
down this way pronounced their selection
of delegate in this case as in bad taste,
and that the Democratic delegate was
arrested by a Democratic Sheriff.
Mayoralty. In Richmond, Virginia,
two gentlemen lay claim to the Mayor
ship of the city, each holding a separate
and independent court, and each having
a special police force. Between the two
times are quite lively in the city, although
tho casualties on the 18th as reported are
but one man killed and three wounded.
The Bottom Fell Out. On the
morning of the 17th, at St. Johns, New
Brunswick, a portion of the bottom of
the harbor on the Carletin side, sunk
bodily, so that where before at low tide
there was a beach, there is now twenty
feet of water. Wharves were destroyed
and lumber set adritt.
Secretary Boutweli has purchased dur
ing this Administration $99,323,050 in

ministration. During the year he has
sold about $03,000,000 in gold.

Democratic Convention. This
body ment at 10 o'clock A. M. on Wed
nesday, and temporarily organized by
the election of Gov. Geo. L. Curry, of
Clackamas, Chairman, Lafayette Lane
and A. W. Stanard, Secretaries. A
committee of three, Fay, of Jackson,
McComas, of Union, and Burch, of
Polk, was appointed on credentials, when
the Convention adjourned to 1 o'clock P.
M. Upon the reassembling of the Con
vention, the report of the committee on
credentials was accepted, and a perman
ent organization effected by the election
of the following officers : Geo. L. Curry,
of Clackamas, Chairman ; W. E. How
ell, of Clackamas, Secretary; A. W.
St&nard, of Linn, Assistant Secretary ;
A. N. Arnold, of Linn, Sergeant-at-Arma.
A motion prevailed to appoint
one delegate from each county as a com
mittee on platform. Said committee
consisted of Miller of Marion, Mc Ar
thur of Baker, Hunter of Union, Moore
of Umatilla, Miller of Grant, Gates of
Wasco, Thayer of Multnomah, Bennett
of Columbia, Adair of Clatsop, Hodges of
Clackamas,Swick of Washington,Jackson
of Yamhill,' Holmes .of Polk, Smith of
Benton, Crooks of Linn, Cochran ol
Lane, Parker of Douglas, Thompson of
Coos. Jolinsffn of Currv, and Fay' of
Jackson. . The order of business adopted
by the Convention was: 1st. Peimanent
organization ; 2d, committee on plat
form ; 3d,' adoption of platform ; 4th,
nomination of candidate for Congress ;
5th, for Governor; 6th, Secretary ot
State j 7th, Treasurer ; 8;h, State Print
er : 9th, ratification of nominations of
Judges of the 2d, 3d and 5th Districts;
10th, ratification of nominations of Dis
trict Attorneys for 2d, 3d, 4th and 5th
districts. Convention then adjourned
until 7 o'clock P. M. Immediately upon
the opening of the evening session, the
majority of the cointnitte (18) reported
a platform and resolutions, which were j
read, when the Minority (2) reported.
After some cross firing as to how the
platform should be adopted, the Conven
tion resolved to take it by sections, as
swallowing the whole thing at one sjulp
was too much of a dose. The first seven
articles were adopted without a dissent
ing voice, but when the 8th came up the
fight opened. It was pronounced by
Humason, Johnson, Cochran, and others,
as, simple flat-footed repudiation, and
such a plank in the platform, the Democ
racy of Oregon was doomed to certain
and overwhelming defeat, and they ad
vised temporizing, policy and calm delib
eration. Fay, Ben. Hayden, McArthur,
aud others, endorsed the plank, endorsed
repudiation; wanted a Democratic plat
form, atserting that they had not had
oue for ten years. He (Fay) was in
fa. or, for once, just once, of cominir fair
and square on Democratic principles,
and if successful they would have fought
the battle on principle, and if defeated
they would go down with flying colors.
Chapman, of Multnomah, "raised his
feeble voice in warning." Reed, of
Multnomah, asked : " Will you never
learn anything? Will you never be in
structed by the past?" He insisted that,
repudiation engrafted in the platform,
the Democracy of Oregon was forever
dead. Jasper Johnson told the Conven
tion that if the article was adopted, the
death-knell of the party was sounded ;
the party was split in twain ; that he
was now and forever against repudiation
in any form. (We would like to give
the opinions of other lights of the De
mocracy,' but time and space will not al
low.) Humason moved to strike out the
repudiation clause and insert in its stead:
" We are in favor of an equitable adjust
ment of the bonds," which, after another
amendment by Fay, to Ftrike out: " the
interest already paid has more than liq
uidated the national debt," (which Hu
mason said was a lie, and everybody
knew it), was passed. The balance of
the resolutions were adopted without op
positiorrj and the Convention adjourned
until 9 o'clock A. M. on Thuisday. We
have but space to give the nominations :
For Congress, Jas. H. Slater; Governor,
L. F. Grover; S. F. Chadwick, Secre
tary of State ; L. Fleischncr, Treasurer ;
Thos. Patterson, State Printer. .B. F.
Bonham, of Marion, received the nomi
nation for Judge of the 3d district, and
N. II. Butler, of Polk, Prosecuting At

George S. Boutweli, Secretary of the
Treasury Dear Sir : I leave here to

fore the middle or last of next week.
Had I but known beloie making my ar
rangements for starting that you would

fied that on your arrival you will be met
by the bulls and bears of Wall street,

induce you to sell gold or pay the No

side, ad to hold fast on the other. The
fact is, a desperate struggle is now mak

ment to help them out. I write this let
ter to advise you of what I think you
may oxpect, to put you on your guard.
I think, from the lights before me, I
would move on without change until the
present struggle is over. If you want to
write to me this week my address will be
Washington, Peon. I would like to hear
your experience with the factions, at all
events, if they pive you time to write.
No doubt you will have a better chance
to judge than I, for I have avoided gen
