lowing news :
The wetitlwr ilnrinc the past week.

-the thermometer wmtfnff Troirr is
to 30 degrees. On Tiinrsnay nignt it
set in to rain and cotiniied to rain all

re went to nress. Tlie cattle in this
particular vicinity' arc commencing to
succumb, ana a lew nave uieu. nay

that some of our farmers were asking
forty and fifty dollars per ton In the
Hack, ami eurnty uouars delivered in
The Walla Walla papers ray that
there is very little snow lyine on the
ground in that county, but tliat the
weather has been cold and a large
number of sheep and cattle have died,
principally ror want ot shelter.
From Grant county we-have, receiv
ed the best kind of news, and to prove
that the winter has been mild and tliat
cattle have done exceedingly well
Mr. George Edgar, of Edgar A Co's
stage line, brought down on Ms last
trip a bunch of green grass, vlj :are
inclined to the opinion that Ursujtfc
the "Banner1' county cast of the moun
tains ror stock rawing.
All the1 news that we have received
from turner Yakima, over in Washine
ton Territory, ta of a disoounuriiW
nature. Kraal the lower portion of
the talley. however, we believe ;he
cattle ate doine better.
At present it is almost impossible to
form anything like a correct idea of
the loss the cattle men are going to
sustain. It denenda noon how the
spring opetis and upon several other
contingencies. However, taken alto
gether, the winter nas not been so se
vere and in no way as disastrous as that
of '61 and 'Ci and we are inclined to
believe that when we come to turn up
the entire loss tvf the winter, it will
not fall tar short of the amount now
supposed by many.
The band of young cattle brought
up late last fall, by Mr. Wro. Cornell,
of Rockland, from the Wallamet val
ley, we learn are dying off rapidly for
the want of feed and shelter. The
probability now is that he will lose the
entire band some two hundred be
fore the winter terminates. This Is
the same band upon which last (all we
made such a glowing estimate of. the
money that Mr. CemeO was goto to
realise from his Investment, prWah'sp,
lie got them safely through the win
ter. Oar young enthusiasts on "cat
tle raising'' will see from the above
that this business is about as precari
ous and uncertain as any other, and
that it cannot be profitably carried on
without a proper place to protect the
cattle from tie inclement weather and
a sufficient amount of feed to keep
them from starving.
A letter from Grand Homle valler,
Union county, dated January Mn,
The winter so far is pronounced by
.the "Oldest Inhabitants" to be the
pleasantest ever known here. About
Christmas we had a "cold snap" tax
tnt about four or rnw dnva. rtnee that
time the weather has been very pleas
ant in day time clear and mild al
most as Snrimr time, and the evcnlnn
pleasant, generally Being ja about
cold enough to freewj a little daring.

In Powder River valley that are win

men are highly delighted with their
prospects, and mere win oe nnnoreas
of tons of lay stand over for next win
ters use.
Business ofall kinds has been much
bettei this winter than ever before.
Our merchants have not probably done
so much business, but what they have
done has been on a ranch better and
surer bash.

Hare of Washington for that purpose,

We 'haw not the bill referral to at

returns of 1870 and comply an estimate
of what tlie relative strength of the
parties would belli the Leristatnre of
lWi if the proper apportionment had
been made In !u
The United States census of 1870
allowed 91.059 total number of inhab
itants. Wears to have 2s Senators
and 19 .ReDreseniatives in the next
Legislature, that would be In the ratio
of 1,133 to each Senator and one Rep
resentative to each 1,86S persons. The
counties of Benton, Clackamas. Stet
son, Coos, Curry. Uouglas, Marten,
Multnomah, Tillamook. Washington
and Yamhill, eleven in number, which
are all reliably Republican, ha yea pop
ulation of 51,260 against 89,809 cou-
tmiied in trie remaining eleven
Under the present apportionment
these 51,250 inhahi rants hiva ten Sena
tors allowed them, 'while S9,80 Inhab
itants have twelve. Under the same
rule the 51,250 will lave only twenty-
four Representatives, while the 39,809
willhavetwenty-flve. Had there been
a rc-apportionment according to the
census of 1870 these figures would have
been exactly reversed in the Senate,
for 4, 188 in 51,230 goes twelve times
and a large fraction over, and It re
quires little aritlteinetic to show tliat
4,138 wont go ten times Into 39,809.
Umler this new ratio the eleven coun
ties with51,350luhHliUntB would have
been entitled to almost twenty-eight
Representatives, and the other eleven
counties would have had only twenty
one. The effect of tfiw Legislative dis
honesty has been to disfranchise a'
great ixirtion of the State whh la re

legally perpetuate the rate of Democ-

much as possible, the late Democratic
ousted three Republicans from
ill, Beutou and Douglas counties,
s to commence the next ses-
the tame stocked so that
hoM-oter Senators can rule and no Re-
puuican soatortty can avail. Had the
apportiouinent bill passed, it would
have htsardrd this dominion hi the

that the portion of the State which in
creased so greatly before the last cen
sus has so increased since that the evil
has augmented beyond the estimates
we have given above.
We recite these facts for two reasons:
Pint that the dishonesty ot the Demo
cratic party may be duly understood
and appreciated. Second, that the
Republicans nf our State may realize
the necessity for united and rigorous
action, and every man may feel ani
mated by a determination to carry
enough of the dose counties to still
give os the Legislature, enable us to
elect a true Republican to the United
States Senate, and repeal much of the
Infamous legislation of the but session.
