SATURDAY, DEC. 2, 1S71. If. H. OUiri:iI l'apor for Oregon. Suspension of tlte M'rit of Habeas i'orpns. The act of tho Provident in sus pending the writ of habeas corpus in nine counties of South Carolina, for the purpose of suppressing the outrages of the rebellious Ku Klux, is drawing from Democrat ic quill-drivers that accusation and nbuse which was anticipated. Xo words in the vocabulary of accusa tion and condemnation are strong enough to express the intensity of their aversion to this act ot the President. The President and lie publicaii party would have been as tonished beyond measure, if such a storm of invective and abuse had been withheld by the Democracy. Every step ot the Kepublican party in throttling treason in the late re bellion, was met by just such a storm of condemnation. IS very step of the Republicans at reconstruction has been attended by the like De mocratic music. Misrepresentation, fault-finding and abuse, seem to be the "lock, stock and bar Tel" of a Democratic editor's out lit. They have numerous songs, but they seem all to be pitched to one or the other of these three tunes. These are the instruments, though -there mav be many strings. Any measure of reconstruction, or correc tion of abuses and crimes, which have been, and are now being per petrated in the South by the late Tebels, sets these instruments to go ing. They till the whole land with their discordant notes of rage and -false statement. They sing out now that the President lias placed these counties under martial law. This is not so ; he has simply suspended the writ of habeas corpus, which is altogether a different thing. Mar tial law is substituting the will of the military commander in the place of all other law. The suspension of the writ of habere corpus, em powers the civil officers, the sheriffs of those rebellious counties, to em ploy the military to assist them in enforcing the civil laws, by arrest ing these Ku Klux murderers and robbers. An armed resistance to law and the Government, however, which Ku Kluxism is, -Tails with .iu the character of rebellion, and becomes amenable to the laws of the United States. The writ of habeas eorfnis, therefore, will not release a "anan to State authority, who has committed an offense against a United States statute, and lias been arrested by a United States officer- The Federal courts instituted an inquiry into the character of the Ku Klux order and the crimes com mitted by it. They found it a secret band of cowardly thieves and cut-throats, endeavoring by in timidation and outrage, to force Re publicans to vote the Democratic ticket, leave the country, or die. They found the sheriffs and civil functionaries in these counties un able, without imperiling their lives, to arrest these violators of law. The anti-Ku Klux law was tho result, which authorizes, in such cases as we have indicated, the President to suspend the writ of habeas corpus, thus empowering the civif author ities to' use the military as a posse comitatus to assist them in enforc ing the laws and arresting crimi nals. . :, :,-v- &tl k to lriliciJ s. The total demoralization of the Democratic party renders it almost, if not absolutely, certain, that the next standard-bearer of the Repub lican party for President will be elected. We say almost certain, for a thing is never entirely sure so long as it continues in the range of possibility. Present indications, based upon past experience, all in dicate a most glorious victory to the Republican ticket. A possible contingency, however, might arise, which would imperil the success of the party. The late elections have demonstrated that the Republican party is fiir in the ascendant. They have also shown that the unity of the party remains intact, in spite of the efforts of certain disaffected ones, who have heretofore occupied the position of leaders in the party. This is the present position of the Republican party. Principle, in stead of men, has lcen the secret of Republican unity and success in the past, and so long as principle is ad hered to in the future, the same re sults will follow. There are aspir ing men in every part', who hold themselves in readiness to take any step, however inconsistent or dis honorable, to promote personal am bition, or satisfy personal jealousy. Such men are in the Republican larty. They occupy high positions, and some are oven now trying to spread dissension and discord in tho party. In the dark hours of the rebellion, some Republican . leaders attempted the same thing, but most signally failed in the end, though their influence was bad for a time. The point is to Le guarded against these demagogues and traitors in the van of the party. If Horace Greeley, or Carl Schurz, or; any other sore-head, proposes to get up a coalition ticket of weak-kneed Re publicans and -"new departure" and "no nominating" Democrats, it is only a scheme to promote selfish purposes which they cannot carry out in the Republican party. Let us, then, as Republicans, continue to look steadfastly to principles ; let us continue to. estimate and be influenced by our party leaders, only in proportion as they remain true and faithful to the doctrines of the party, and as they show willing ness and ability to maintain them ; thus continuing true to our position and practice, no effort of the, opposi tion, of the scheming demagogues in the party, can prevent the great Republican party of this nation from achieving increased triumphs in the future.

Oregoniaus are nicknamed "Webfeet," we suppose, because they paddle around in the water so much that their feet are inclined to spread out, and possibly some of the toes may be joined to gether. The name is supposed to be characteristic, anyhow, the same that "Puke" is of - Missourians, and "Sucker" is of Illinoisians. Our ideal of Oregon, formed at the big end of a two-thousand-mile - report, expected to shine in a golden blaze of sunshine all Summer, and drip like a drowned chicken all Winter. "Sucker" like, we drew in all the information that came through that two-thousand-mile report, and ab sorbed it. We expected, when Winter began, it would mist and drizzle, and slosh and squizzle, and pour in disordered succession con tinuously, without any interruption from the sunshine, until wet, wetter, wettest ; dank, slush, swash, be- drizzled everything from a barn yard hen to the Governor, until all became soaked, and held water like a sponge. ' Well, Winter has been upon us for some weeks, and it has misted and fizzled and poured ; but we deny that it has done so all the time. The sun showed his ra dient bid face ' several " times ; be sides there have been some days when it did not even mist enough to spray the whisker of a Thomas cat.

The recent action of the Reichstag, in prolong ing the military budget on a war estimate, contemplates a speedy re cccupation of French Departments by-the Germans. Bismarck advo cates' this movement for the reason that he sees that the tenure of au thority by that, this Government is very precarious. Two steamships collided in the harbor of the port 'at Alexandria, Egypt, about the 23d of last month.

One extra berth had been engaged which it was stated - might .not be used. The supposition is, that Tweed wishes to ' send away all of his valuables and then follow them.

A PrtAYJPRFOii. EmToni. liev. Charles Tlvsey having lieen con demned by the Episcopal church for heresy has commenced to found a religion of his own in London, lie lias drawn up prayers, cut up the Apostles and Nieeue Creeds, and made up an original programme of exercises which he presents as pure extracts of the Gospel. One of his Litanies contains this beseech ment : "That it may please Thee to help all literary persons and editors of the public press, that they may use ail their powers in the cause of truth and righteousness, and rise above the praise and blamo of men." Those who may differon the most essential and distinctive doctrines of the Christian faith can unite in this prayer. Atheism. One of the most pain ful proof of weakness of the Parisian cause is the dying words of General Ilenrv, one ot the Communist lead ers, who was captured and executed by the government.. , Peing offered a Catholic priest or a Protestant pastettr, he declined, saying, "1 be lieve in no God ; none ot us do. We are of the. universal atheistical republic. "Why should I see a priest ?' It is as impossible to preserve good looks with a troop of bad passions feeding on the blood, d. set of low loves trampling through the heart, and a selfish, disdainful spirit en throned in the will, as to preserve an elegant mansion vith a litter ot swine in the basement, a tribo of gipsies in the parlor, and owl and vultures m the upper apartments. Badness and beauty will no more keep company than poison will con sort with health or. an elegant carv ing survive the furnace fire'f The experiment of putting them together has been tried for thousands of years, but with an unvarying re sult. Origix of; tiis Roses.- On a a certain time, at Bethlehem, there was a beautiful young girl who was charged with a crime, and sentenced to be burned to death. They led her into a field . and piled fagots around her, and set tliem on "fire. But she being innocent, prayed, while they were burning, that some wonderful thing might take place to show that she was innocent. And this is what happened : all the fag ots which were already on fire were changed into bushes full of red ros es, and those which had not kindled turned to white ones, also full of flowers. "'And these," says an ancient writer, "were the first rose tree and roses, both red and white,1 that man ever saAv." And the country where this was done abounds with them to this day. The only way for a man to es cape being found out is to pass flW what he is. lhe only way to main- tain a good character is to deserve it. It is easier to correct our faults than to conceal them. Hie Two AyprcMt'e'" i "; "r. Two boys were apprenticed in n carpentcr's shop. One determined to make himself a thorough work man; the other didn't care. One read and htudicd, :inl got books to help him understand the principles of his trade. Ifo spent his evening! at home reading. Thp other liked fun best. He often went with other bovs to have a 'good time.' "Come," lie -often -said to his shepmate, "leave your books, and go with us; what's the use of all this reading?" "if I waste t!ic;? golden mo ments," was the boy's answer, "f s hall lose what 1 can. never rnuK r up. '''' ; ' " " Wiiile the two boys were still apprentices an offer of 12,000 ap peared in the newspapers for th.o best plan of a S tate 1 louse - to bcr built in one of the Eastern States. The studious boy saw the advertise ment, and determined to try for it. After careful study he drew out Ids plans, a nd sent them to the commit tee. We suppose lie really 'did not expect to gain .the prize, but still ' he thought 'there is nothing liko trying.' In about a week alter ward" geT'tlomaif arrived at tho carpenter's shop, and asked if an architect by the name of Washing ton Wilberibree lived there. "Xo," said the architect, "but T have an apprentice by that name.' "Let's see him," said the gentle man. The voting man was summoned, and - .informed that his plan w:w accepted, and that '2.000 were his. 'lhe gentleman then said that the boy must put up tlie building, and his employer was so proud of. his success that he' willingly gave him his time and let him go. 'J his studious young carpenter became one of the first architects of the country. lie made a fortune, and v.r?ir.ds h?

A gen tj eman who is rather given to story telling relates-.the follow nig : When I was a youngman I spent. several years in theouth, residing for a while at Pert Hudson, on the Mississsippi river." A great deal ot litigation was going on 'about that time, and it was not always an easy matter to obtain a jury. One day I was summoned to attend in that capacity, and repaired to the Court to be excused. On my name being called 'I in formed his Honor, the Judge, that I was not a freeholder, and therefor not qualified to serve. "1 am stopping for tho time being at Port Hudson." "You board at the hotel, I pre sume r" ' "I take my meals there, but I have my rooms in another part of the town, where I lodge." ":o you keep bachelor s hall. "Yes, sir' r "How long have you lived in that manner t "Alxxit six months." "I think you are qualified," gravely remarked the .Judge, "fori have. never known a man... to keep bachelor's hall the length of time you name, who has not dirt enough in his room to- make him a free holder. The Court does not excuse you. . ; f?'; The Bkrinnixg op 6aicago.-A little less than forty years ago a party of emigrant landed their sloop near tho neau ot Jasce-Michigan...- They luul been six weeks making their : way" round the lake? from Cleveland ; they were in search of a' home 011 the wild prairie of Illinois. The country about their landing was low ; and .'ill save one, determined to push on to this interior. He determined that ho .had traveled far enough from civiliza tion, and refused to go farther. TlHi rest remonstrated, lie was stubborn. They tried to reason. They coaxed, they threatened, but all to no avail. A council was held and the fractious .ono permitted , to stay. 1 lis name was Clark. He went .out two miles , from, the sloop, and found a dry knoll on whieh he built a rude shelter for his wife and two boys. In going to and from the landing a trail or path was made ; it was then known . as Clark's trail. A few nights ago a fire raged along Clark's trail now Clark street, and burned hundreds of the linc&t buildings in America. - ; IXTERKSTING DeCISIOX.
