fo jpimng Agister. U. S. Official Paper for Oregon. SATURDAY. MARI'IT 9d lS7rt 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 !" Disabled Only. Tho report that the steamship which left Portland for San Francisco on Saturday last, had .foundered off the mouth of the Colum bia, and all on board gone to the bottom ,-of the deep, deep. Bea, proves to be in correct. It seems the steamer was disa bled, but all the passengers were safe at Astoria, whither the ship had returned for repairs. Ere this we suppose the necessary repairs' have been completed, and the good ship gone on her way re joicing. Republican County Convention. . Convention met Thursday at 11 o'clock A. M., transacted the usual business and adjourned until 2 P. M., when a perma nent organization was effected by the elec tion of Jas. Foster, Chairman, and E. E. Wheeler, of Scio, Secretary. Del--egates to the State Convention were -elected as follows : J. II. Foster, D. Beach, A. B. Morris, J. W. George, .John R. Smith,- Norman Lee, W. 11. Kirk, C A; Williams, G. F. Colbert, Ed.

Candidates commenced to arrive to attend the Democratic State Convention "on Monday, and on Tuesday -th bulk of the delegates were here. Then commenced the "log rolling." You ' -could see little knots of two and three all .along the street, and we were informed that every knot thus collected contained .at least one candidate. 'Repudiation the Only Principle of the Democratic Party." 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 sounded. 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 ted suicide. Answers the Purposes.

'., . ' - 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 bonds, so that the . outstanding coin debt will be only a little over $2,000,000,000 at the close of the first year of the Ad ministration. During the year he has sold about $03,000,000 in gold. Matrimonial.

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 torney.
