We regard the payment ol our nut ion Ill debt. In loll compliance with all legal obliirations to our ere liters everywhere, und In accordance with the true letter ami spirit of its contranlnK.as no kingcr a question in issue: but Hint we may lie clearly nnders nod, we denoumr all forms and dojireosof repudiation of tliat debt, as urliiuicd by ihe lieniocratle niny and its svninuliisvrs. as not only national calami ties, hut positive crimes, ami we will never mnsunt to a suspk-ion of luck of honor or jusiice in its complete sstislitcttmi. 4. We admit of no distinctions between citizens, whe'lierof nativ eorforei(n birth: and therefore we tivor the nrantin ol full uiunestv to the pmvileof I hose Suites latelv in relK'llion : and we here pledge the full ami ctttoctlvo prom km of our chil laws to all persons voluntarily com ing lo or reiddlni? in our hind. ij.

J, We believe that popular duration Is the sole true Iwslsand liniie ol a free gov eniment, and shall ever oiuiosc any diver sion of, or Interference with the common school funds or binds in this state, for any other than their legitimate purpose, and we condemn the act of favoritism by the Inst Legislature whereby two hundred thousand dollars, taken from the school fund, were g ranted to a coriiorntion con-si-iiiiK mainly of Dctnoenittc leaders, and jwrtv favorite, for i ho construction ol a work which another coiomlion, entirely sound nnd ntsiionslble, offered toconstruc't lor seventy-five thousand dollars less; and that we are in lavorof the passage by the Legislature of an efficient school law! such as shall secure to all citizens of Ottr Slate a good common school education. X. We find no terms sufficiently strong to express our disapproval of those acts of the last Legislature whereby the swamp lands belonging this S ate have liecn taken from the needy settlers, and Riven without limit or proper competition in price lo the land grabtier aad speculator; whereby the emoluments nnd salaries of State olflccrs have linen unconstitutionally Increased, and the taxes Increased ihous ands ol dollars by the ureal ion of new and unnecessary offices nnd salaries, for the purpose of providing for party favorites; anil whereby the ell liens of our metropo lis have lieen deprived of and denied the rlirlit of controlllna their police unihorit v.

Tliat the Republican party of this S'atc are in favor of the General (Jovern inent extending aid toward building a railroad from l'ortland, tlregon, lo Salt lake City, mid from Jackson county lo Huiuisildt, and we hereby pledge onr 'par ty representatives to the support of the Mine.

Si. smith" Fpcecli. Ex-Senator N'ei--mit!i let fly kif poUto-trap in tliis city last Satur day afternoon to tlie great patis'he tion ol tlie seaker, it' nobody else. I 'e complained of having a tad cold Ht tlie outtct, but we thought lx? fiire he had finished his harangue, that badness was characteristic of the man throughout. His allusions to Attorney General Williams," in tended to be facetious, were prompt ed more by a spirit of spite and chagrin. It was quite modest in him to try to convey the impression that Williams was afraid to meet himin debate! Tlie conijarisoii which he instituted between the ex ienscs or running the Government by the present administration and those of the jst administra tions was skilfully, though unfairly presented. While lie showed the exieiisesof tlie present to be enor mously in excess of Buchanan's, he neglected to tell how, and by what party these iiicreascd expenses were .brought upon the nation. He stated that the stealings of the present Ad ministration were about eighty mill ions per am nun. He might have put them at three or four times as much, and the "gudgeons" in the audience would have taken the in crease down with the same ease. To amplify on that head without scruple, is peculiarly a Democratic art. He said that Trumbull, Schura, Greeley it Co., left the Republican party because of iti corruption. As these gentlemen are now enjoying the sympathies of the Tammany in innoccntx, and are beginning to be regarded with favor even by Ore gon Swamp Land, Lock and Dam and Litigant monopolists and swin dlers, that looks exceedingly feasi ble! Exceedingly. He thought that Greeley fe Co., when they left the party, took the "brains" along with them. As Greeley has be lieved in nearly every ism, and has been as unreliable and changeable, and as full of new departures as t he Democracy, we can readily account for the above opinion. Tlieir char acters being alike in vacillation, congeniality is at once felt, and coalescence will follow. Reasserted that tlie excuses of the Indian De partment were iu excess of what tliey had been, and as a c'incher to substantiate this mere assertion, said that he had been in the service three years. This accounted for his opin ion, lie judged the financial man agement of the others by the one he had to do with. He pitched into Amnesty roughshod. Said on this question the Republicans were insincere As the Amnesty bill lias within the last few days passed Congress by a two-thirds vote, we can't believe him. His n marks on the negro would have suited an au dience of slave-drivers and traders to a dot. He said in substance, the negro was inferior, low and debased, and if Democracy were elevated to power, he would be turned out ot office, and. placed where he belong ed. He said that it was an infamy for a roan to be punished by pen alty which the nature of the crime did not call for. The penalty against treason is death, and not dis franchisement. Tlierefore, tlie rebels should have been hung and notdia graned by being disfranchised! And so lie went on, "lippiteciit,"' "rip snort" until lie had finished. It could not be expected that a man of his polital reputation could lie anything but unfair. To misrepre sentand misstate would naturally be expected from him, and disai Kiiiitment would follow unless he did. He fully sustained his repu tation in these directions on this occasion. Mmm. Democratic politicians pretend to lie dreadfully afraid that Hen Hoi laday will get xssession of the Canal ami Lock improvement. 7'hey make that a political issue. 7'heir (ear, however, is a big sham. 7'lie Oregon ian says "that at aijy time during the last eighteen months the 'monopolist' could have bought out the Canal and Locks Company ; " "tliat a majority of the stock has been reiatcdly ot tered for sale to .Mr. Holladay, and such an oll'ci' has been made within the lat tew weeks." 7'his fact shows how ridiculous is the plea urged, that a Democratic Legisla ture should be elected to prevent ilolladay trom monopolizing the Locks. 7'lie company has an ele phant on its hands, and would gladly sell out to Ilolladay, to-day, if he would buy. Carl Schtirz, in consultation with the Missouri delegation at Cincin nati, previous to tlie nomination of ii'reeley, said that lie was the weakest candidate the convention could nominate ; that while he re spected Greeley, that he was not the man, with his habits and lack of administrative ability, to receive the highest nomination; that he was a weak man among the (Ver mans of Ohio and Illinois, and no one who could not secure their suf frages could be elected to the Presi dency. It was noticed that in the closing address of Schnrz to the convention, he uttered no words of commendation of either ticket or platform. Xeauilth'a Npeceh "Figures wont lie," is no longer an axiom,sii:ce Ex-Senator Xesmith has begun to financier. He said that the exjienses of the last year of Buch anan's administration were 55,- 901,000. The Portland Herald some months since said they were J 58,469,780 08. It will be observ ed that the discrepancy between these two Democratic authorities amounts to over two millions and a ludf. The real fact in the matter is, the expenses of Buchanan's ad ministration for his last year, amounted in round numbers to 77,000,000. If Nesmith would misrepresent in this particular, is it doing him an injustice to suppose that he would do the same in his other financial statements ? 0 those one hundred and sixty wagons of gold! Bah! Why didn't he make a Tammany computation in wag ons? - Mr. Nesmith in his speech here last Saturday conveyed the impres sion that under the provisions of the Fourteenth Amendment, certain cit izens of the South, late in the re bellion, were disfranchised from voting. This is not correct. The Amendment simply prevented them from holding office. Jen". Davis and the rest ot them are only deprived of holding office. Jeff Davis is said to be in favor of the coalition of the Liberals and the Democrats. It is not surprising that he should be in favor of a movement, which, if successful, would favor his return to political life. i Attorney General Williamsspoke at Eugene City last Monday to one of the largest audiences ever assembled in that place. Much in terest was evinced. Grant expects to get at least half tlie Democratic vote if (reeley be his only opponent BAKTFJM BBWII. The Republican State Conven tion of 7'ennessee, which met in Xashvil'e on the loth inst, consist ed ot three hundred delegates, who were unanimous ami harmonious for Grant. Small-pox is disappearing from Washington, D. C. In the course ot a year the Treas ury Department and its brat ches consume nearly fifty tons of writing paper, six thousand gross of pens and one thousand gross of pencils. Bishop JeQuade, of Rochester, Xew York, forbids the presence of more than 12 carriages at a fune ral. Tlie Webster place in Marshfield, Massachusetts, is advertised to be sold at auction for non-payment of taxes. Of the sixty liecvcs slaughtered daily iu Mataumras, three-fourths are stolen from Texas. It costs the Texas' cattle raisers 8339,500 per annum, to feed that one -Mexican town. Greeley has positively determined not to accept of any invitat'on to speak on political questions while a candidate. In Washington county, Ky., not long since, one Lovell gave his son, seven years old, a pistol and or dered him to shoot an idiot sister. The boy missed the idiot and wounded another sister. A paer mill, five dwellings and a railroad bridge at Chatham, X. V., burned on the morning of the 16th. The Republican State Conven tion of Michigan met on the 16th and airielvg other proceedings, pass ed a resolution in favor of the re election of Grant. The right of way to the I' tali and Northern Railway jiassed the House, at Washington, on the 16th. Col. George W. Dougal, of Cal ifornia, died at Washington, I). C, on the night of the 10th, from pois on which he had taken. Suicided. A special message from President (rant,- accomanying tlie correspon dence of the United States Senate, is as follows : I transmit herewith the eorrespoiidence which has re cently taken place resiecting the difference of opinion which has arisen between this fVovernmentaiid that of Great Britain, with regard to the powers of the Tribunal of Ar bitration created under the treaty signed at Washington iu May, 187 1. I respectfully invite the attention of the Senate to the proposed article submitted by the British Govern ment, with the object of removing the difference which seems to threat en the prosecution of the arbitral ion, and request an expression by the Senate ot their disposition in regard to advising and concerting to a formal adoption of the articles such as proposed by the British Govern ment. The Senate is aware that consultation with that body in ad vance of entering into agreements with foreign States, had many pre cedents in the early days of the Re public General Washington asked their advice upon a pending ques tion. The most important recent precedent is that of the Oregon boundary treaty of 1846. The im portance of the results hanging upon tlie present state of the treaty with Great Britain, leads me to follow these former precedents, and to de sire the counsel of the Senate in ad vance of agreeing to the proposals ot Great Britain. (Signed,) U. S. GRANT. Senator Sumner is reported as thinking the Cincinnati platform a fair, admirable, statesmanlike series of reactions, lie is especially charmed with the tarift' plauk. It the contest is a personal one be tween (V rant and Greeley, ho will supx)rt (Vreeley. (r'ov. Walker, of I'irginia, has a kindling ambition to become ihe Democratic nominee at Baltimore.
