Tlie Treaty of Washington..
We publish this morning, on our fourth
raS. loi - important treat j without
doubt the rriost important treaty ever
entered : into between this Government
nod any other foreign power. On the
part of the United States the Joint High
Commission was composed of the ablest
and most distinguished men of the coun
try. In speaking of it, Caleb Gushing
says: "It. has not been surpassed in
character by any similar convention in
tho world. No such Commission was
employed to negotiate the treaty of
.independence. It overshadows com
pletely our two successive' Commissions
for the negotiation of peace with Fraoce.
It does not underpass onocetiJe, while it
surpasses on the other side, the Com mis
sion of Ghent. It rather remiuds one of
those great international ConiuiUiiou of
Utrecht or Vienna, and, in one respect,
is without precedent. , We think there
is no example in international diplomacy
of an aggrieving nation sending to the
capitol of the aggrieved nation a com
mission, presided over by an actual
Cabinet Minister, with a member of a
previous and rival Cabinet at his side,
and supported by the Premier of the
most important of the colonial possessions
t Great Uritaio.
The treaty became a part of the su
preme law ot" the land by proclamation of
the President on the 4th of July, 1871.
The Washington correspondent of the
Journal notes some other remarkable
coincidences connected with the treaty :
The British Commissioners arrived in
the United States ou the 22 J of February
iIghingtoa'3 birthday and conclud
ing their labors .signing the treaty
'with the Commissioners on the part of
the United States on the 8th of May,
they departed ou the 24th of May -Queen
Victoria's birthday- and on the
evening of the same day the Senate of
the, United States ratified it. ' Exchange
of ratifications between the two countries
was made in London on the 17th of
Jane the anniversary of the . battle of
Bunker Hill and was proclaimed by
the Queen on the 3d. of July, the 95th
anniversary of the independence of the
United States. All should read and
preserve it for future reference.

, TjIE "3Uw IlsARTVsV'----It would
seem that some of tho leading Democrat
ic journals of the country can see noth
ing in the New Departure calculated to
build up or give strength to the pirtyj;
but, on the contrary, they see in it sure
signs of ultimate and overwhelming
defeat. One of the most prominent
Democratic journals of Ohio, the Cincin
nati Enquirer, sharply censures party
journals that so suddenly and eagerly
swallowed the Vallandighatn platform.
It says :
' It would seem to be the extent of the
wisdom of some Democratic journals and
Democratic politicians to have their party '
platform come as near as possible to that
of the Republican without being the
same almost alike as two peas, except
that the one may hare id a black speck
made by a fly or something else, while
the other has none. They do not seem
to comprehend that unless the party out
of power can present principles and
measures superior, and sharply antago
nistic to those of the party in power, the
people will not tear their shirts to put
one out and the other in. If there is to
be little or no difference in measures and
policy o! the two parties, why turn the
country upside down merely to make a
change of persons ? The principles and
measures of the two. parties should be
marked in their antagonism or their con
tests become merely personal, in which
case very little enthusiasm can be count
ed on in a political contest. Disregard
ing this fact, there are Democrats who
seek to put out of sight what is really and
aisttcciiveiy antagonistic io me princi
ples and measures of the Republican
party, and yet as near to the platform of
toe' latter as is possible without overlap
ping it. We tell all such Democrats
that the v are troiogr to win by no such
policy. ' The Democratic party, to suc
ceed, must present principles and an ad
ministrative policy different and superior
to those of the party in power. We
think the line of demarcation is broad
and deep, but that does not seem to be
the case in the opinion of certain Demo
cratic journals and politicians, ox if they
do think as we do, they want the line to
appear as dim as possible. The Dem
ocracy never has conquered, and will
never succeed by any such timid, Hut,
and weak policy.

The following article in the New York
TinU on the lDth of last month, fore
shadows the exposures which the tele-
grapirTnforros us the Time has publish
ed of the thieving operations of the Dem
ocratic office-hjlders in New York The
telegraph also inform us that the "ring"
offered the 7W one million of dollars
on condition that it would keep silent in
regard to .the frauds it is now , rnaking
public, I Following is the iitMe referredH
to above;,. T : .vV.i-v ' '
h We published on the 8th instant an
article .from Connolly's '( alius Slippery
Dick's) own books, showing the frauds
which are perpetrated at the expense of
the pnblia in relation to the city armor
ies alone. We gave the official lists of
and t be rents they were actually worth.
We sent this article to LConuolly, and
gave him the opportunity of correcting
or denying it; but he could not do
either, i -.; .,;
- To-morrow morning we shall publish
a- stiil more important document, also
compiled from Connolly's ' own. books.
We shall prove, and we challenge Con
nelly or any other of the city authorities
to acny a' single tact or , ngure in our
statement, that the public are robbed of
several millions a year under the head of
armory accounts alone. We phall show
that not less than; ninety; millions a year
pass tnrouga, the hands 1 Hail and Con
nolly, and that they and their fellow
conspirators steal a large part of the
money. We? bare openly charged Dick
Connolly of being a thief, and we shall
bow prove him to be one. We shall do
the same with Mayor Hall. We un
dertake to place before the public proofs
California. The news from Cali
fornia is specially cheering to Republi
can. . While among the rank and file of
the Republican party there is unusual
harmony and energy, the Democracy is
dissatisfied with its ticket, and is agitated
by dissensions in various parts of the
State, most notably in ' San Francisco.
Added to this, the colored vote, number
ius between two and three thousand
votes, nearly or quite all of which can
be counted on as Republican, will come
in for the first time. The many abuses
perpetrated by . the Democratic party
during its four years lease of power, has
alienated and driven from its ranks large
numbers, who will gladiy aid in its defeat
at the coming election. In view of these
facts it is confidently believed that Cali
fornia will tfive the Republican ticket at
least 5,000 majority. ,t,
Spain. It is predicted that the new
Ministry, compelled by the recent crisis
in Spain, will soon become unpopular,
and ultimately share ' the fate of its pre
decessors. The Progressitas, the pai ty
from which the new Ministry is formed,
are neither Republicans or Democrats,
but are the upholders of constitutional
monarchy, their progratrme ; including
individual and religious liberty, reduc
tion in the national expenditure, revenue
reform, liberty of the press, and the
secularization of education. They were
the majority in the Provisional Govern
ment, formed after the expulsion of
Queen Isabella, numbering fourteen, to
nine Liberal Unionists and seven Demo
crats. The peasantry will have no King
but a Spaniard, and one of the old line
of Spanish sovereigns.

The New York ' Timet is just now
busily engaged in exposing the thieving
operations of tho Tammany ring the
ring that has fort several years passed
controlled New Yoik city and State. The
lime boldly arraigns Connolloy, the
Democratic Controller, and Mayor Hall,
as thieves and swindlers, and proposes to
prove the allegations by the Controller's
owa hoolu. For three years there has
been no public exhibit of the - finances
of New York, although millions of dol
lars have been raised by taxation. The
citizens who pay exborbitant taxes to
enrich these thieves in - office, now de
mand a full exhibit of the financial con
dition of the city, and are band
ing together and refuse to pay more
taxes until a full exhibit is published by
the ring. The ring, compelled by the
force of public opinion, lately published
a partial exhibit, which proves, eved by
their own showing, that they have in
creased the public debt during the last
three years to moro than fifty million of
dollars! No wonder the people were
indignant, and when the full expose of awfully against dividing.

peered in the "Tunc of the 20th of July,
appeared, of courso the most prodigious
sensation was produced among ail classes.
The amount and extent of these down
right stealing and swindling operations
are enormous, and the Timet proposes to
furnish evidences, still moro glaring if
possible, of the robberies committed by
these Democratic officials. Among other
things spoken of in the expose by the
Timet, it is shown by ' tho Controller's
secret books that a large number of the bcllweathcrehip,
lofu. stables and rooms are rented for discussion ensued
armories to the city by the ring, and that
for ten such lofts rent amounting to 885,
500 is charged to tho city ,notone oftheloft
being used! and that for the armories ac
tually occupied $100,600 a year is charged
by the ring, whereas a fair valuation makes
them worth only $45,000 a year I In the
item of rent for armories about $250,000
is annually embezzled by the ring, which
is but a mere wdea bite"; compared to
the amount stolen under pretense of fit
ting up and keeping in repair the lofts
and stables used as armories. Under
the head of "finishing and repairs" most
of the big swindles are perpetrated.' The

Since my last writing some oue, sup
posed to be Indians, entered the house of
Speed Bevios, three miles from this place
on the Albany road, and appropriated to
their use almost his entire outfit for
housekeeping, consisting ot bed clothes,
cooking utensils, wearing apparel, etc.
Mr. Bevins, accompanied by a friend,
went in pursuit of the thieves as far as
the Grand Roode reservation, but could
get no- clue of them. It might be as
well tor agents to keep Indians on the
reservation, and fullfil at least a part of
their official duties, while their credit is
good and they are under oath. The In
dian pest in Oregon is getting to be as
common as the horse disease in rew
York, and if agents don't do their duty
it will devolve on citizens to take the
matter in hand.

the simplest and most durable shuttle maebine on.

particulars address, MINER A PEARSON. ;
Eight Reaaons Why the Buckeye Sew
ing raacnine is superior so ui vtaera t
1. It is tbe simplest shuttle machine made.
3. It has lesa wearing parts.
3. It has no nail springs and compound
4. It is better adapted to a large range of work
6. It has less pieces or maebinerr; ri ;
S. It is less liable to break needles than any
other machine. iu
7. Tbe Shuttle will wear longer Utah the
shuttle in any other machine. -
8. That it has the best reeding device, wb if b
will never wear ont, get eut of order, break nee
dles, feed unevenly, slip on starched goods, e
pucker the seam, so that one part of the : fabrio
will come out shorter tban tne outer, wmcn an
other feeds are liable to do. It makes every
stitch of an equal length. It is stronger : than
other feeds. We can take a strong piece of eloth
and put one end In our machine and the other .
end in any other machine, and guarantee that our
machine wi)l take tbe cloth from tbe oilier, in con.
sequence of tbe superior sircDgm 01 tne teea. ,
It is the only feed strong enough to feed I thick
solo-leather, sewing on shoe soles. ATo soaping
tbe cloth or any other aid ia required.- 1 o
It has no complicated machinery, and therefore
ia not liable to get out of order. It has a beauti-
lui movement,, making nearly two tnousana
stitches per minute.
The BUCKEYE sJEWINU MACHINE makes
the lock stitch, tbe same as the Howe, Wilson,
Singer and Florence alike on both sides. We
offer a premium of ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS
tor any machine on this coast mat win p
stronger or more elaotio stitch than the BUCK.
