The late disaster in Chicago has developed the plcnsii g fact, that while, our people are leaving no stone unturned in their untiring ef forts to accumulate wealth and intlu ence, they have not lurt those nobler and more exalted traits of character, growing out of Christian bene volet ce and sympathy. The munificent sums being so promptly raised and pent to the sui'ferii g, lire scourged in!! aY.ta..tsof t hat devoted e'ty, from every quarter of the i.'nion, indicate that the great na tional heart .bleeils in sympathy with the suffering, the poor, the distressed. The greed for gain, the strife for honors, the struggle after jositin ai.d influence characterize u as a ?ple ; and though much of sordid selfishness is exhibited, and m cl aritablei :ess shown in the treat ment of comjielitors in the race, yet th.e avenues ofsympathy leading to the great American heart are still open to the flow of it christianizing Ah Kan, a Chinaman, was bund murdered, with head cut nearly from his body, in a Chinese restau rant, San Francisco, last Monday.

Fas. him around. "While the Radicals are demor alized, the democratic party pre sents an unbroken front." 'this is the language of the Iloseburg PlaiinUaler. Is it sarcasm? or does it proceed from an innocent be- fai that the Democratic party is sweeping all before it? Portland Oresonion. We think the Plaindealcr means that, while the "front" is unbroken, the "rear" is in a bad fix. Isaac, the colored bootblack in Portland, near the ferry landing, gave ten dollars towards the Chi cago fund. In proportion to his ability, the Oregonian ranks Isaac among the champion givers of that city. He deserves an iixrease of patroiiage. At a great 1 lermblican "meeting held at Madrid, Spain, on the 36tb, resolutions were adopted declaring that the party would offer untiring opposition to every form of govern ment for Spain which was not purely Republican. Some of the speakers were emphatic in their opposition to the present Government. On the night of the 16th, at Warsaw, Kentucky, a party of ev-enty-five men established pickets and attacked the county jail, for the ptfrpose of taking out Obijah Grid ley, confined for killing a man a few days ago.

On the. night of the 17th, at Zanesville, Ohio, Charles Durbin, a lawyer, shot himself through the head at the bed-side of his sick wife, after being told by the physi cian she could not recover. - His wife died in a few minutes afterward. r Washington, (,ct 6th, 1871. oonouks-s vy. i.obyists. liut two months remain before this liody meets.

Contractors on the railroad are working with their forces near this place, and ere long the snort of the great iron hor.-e. will h; heard approaching. Money and men are smeeptible of removing-mountains, and' making the rough places smooth. We hear some men complaining in I.ane county, who have given donations to Mr. Iloliaday, leeaue of sta tions being made lutvveen their re spective towns.
