and such blowim' will suiflv burst
the influence of the blowers. Charles
Sumner is an egotistical bis man.
As a scholar ho is naturally large,
but how insufferable his scholarly
airs. There was. time when he j "0' '' ; Thiers, and expressed great irrita-

have so clouded his latter-day of-1
forts as to render him an object of
disgust to his old-time (rieuds pjpef M political editor. Mr.
'anity is now his chief stock in , Y. knew at that time that we were
trade. He has been honored by his j a Democrat as well as the Heois
fellow citizens with a seat , tl,c JK" nian knows that we proless to
United States Senate to long, that
he has arrived at the conclusion
that he is neeeMiy to the existence i
of t ho r;ov,.rmet : that who., he I

Snme n romnrko,! tn fjonoml !
tlraut that Sumner was a disbeliev.!rallV. however, if
r in the Bible. Grant quietly re-1
marked that it was because be I
(Sumner) did not originate it.
We have heard of persons who !
sjwut hours in idly gazing into
looking-glass in admiration of their i
physieal beauty. Sumner every
once in a while spends hours in lis
tening to his own voice in the Sen
ate, the utterances of which serve
more to illustrate the supreme self
ishness ami vanity by which he is
actuated, than to command the re-
uiuvt anil emitiili'iiee nl his honrplN
Selfishiies8iswteemelasaguiding!wrtai,,,yb(rae accessory to tlie
virtue by him, and egotism puffo
him into an enormous gaas bag.
We think he ought to superannuate;
i ,.i1.;.n; 'i-i,
)a nut tin tliii nut irl list: Tluw-i hiil
try has no use for so much aristocrat-1
icr wuidy bigness.
In 1870 the State Senate of Ore
gon, then Democratic, ejected Mr.
X M. Witliam, who had been le
gally elected to a seat in that body,
from the Semite, aud admitted Mr.
Stratum to his place. This was
done in order to secare . requisite
support fur certain Democratic
schemes desired to be put through,
-ft was . high-handed act of injus
tice, as well as an evidence of
diameless corruption. Some Demo
cratic journals are quite concerned
now lest the State Senate, now Re
publican, should see proper to cor
rect that matter. It the Acta .re
a we have read them, the incom
ing State Senate will prove recreant
to its duty unless it does admit Mr.
Witliam to the seat from which
be was so injustly ejected.
To show how inconsistent Sen. tor
Sumner is in hit assertions that
Oeneral Grant is so wicked and
dangerous a man, just let it be re
fwmbered that this sune.ristoer.tic
scholarly ponderosity from Massa
chusetts, voted to give Grant the
power to suspend the writ of lutUas
corput at will. If he wen really
Awere in his estimate, how could
be do that?
Oar Neighbor IxplHlo.
We have no inclination to do the
editor of the Democrat any iimis -
i ' .
tice. He desire to lie lair aim court -
eons in our editorial writings, and
will not intentioiiallv misrepresent
. . . . J 1
the principles or record of any of'the
editorial fraternity. Not lon since
iraicriuiy. A ot long since
the Democrat in endeavoring to
account for the recent Republican
Victory in this State, said that "IiiIsls
! 1 1 - - B ""
iioou, misrepresentation, bnuery, in
timidation, fall prom we?, trickery,'
etc., were Used in every county.
This, if true, would not onlv indi-
. ... , , i i ...
eate the most degraded state
morals in the Republican party, but
would also cast a vile stigma uh.iii
that c'ass of Democracy who saw
nrnner to vote for nnv nortion. or
all of the lJennbliean ticket. In
a"swir ty t,,is i'"l"'tation and stig-
;e alluded to a rumor which
we nave nearu several nines since we
come to iii Own, and which
wo believed to l eoiTcet. in the
following language: -There wasa
time, we are informed, when he
time, wo ni-o infimnoil wlion
s . 1 1 11
(brown) blew the editorial bellows
self?" In the De
rut of last
! eek,our neighbor, after indulging
! i" sonic indignant threats, gives the
fo,Iofflng explanation :
When we were alnnit nineteen
the same time the paper was edited ;
hV G; tYofnmJ K.-'
he one now.
The error we committed was in i
f tl,e ""npreion that he was
P"l"'--"l "tor of a Uepublican
j4"riial ' low:l- W
wlit,,r- T,1C '"erence would liatlt-
wcrc ""PHcd PM the editorial
ol a Republican journal, it was I
werc m harmony, as Iodizing in
t!,eway of reporting conventions,
hes, etc., as every lxsal editor
knows, has much to do with illu
minating partisan positions and
principles. .Morally, there is such ;
a thing as liecoming accessory to a
thing by our jiosition, or actions,
though our sentiments may not i
harmonize with it.
vur neignoor :

granting the use of his brilliant pen
L - j ..kc 5 I
!"'" uuBgfuawon in rentier-
inS the local lges attractive. We
cannot avoid the impression that it j
would have been much more credit
able for him to have been a Repub
lican tlien and to have changed
since, than tor him to have used his
influence in the spread of that which
he did not believe. We did not
manufacture the report which has
draw this explanation from our
neighbor, so it is not a "base fabri
cation." We do not care about
having any of our friends branded
as "iufamous liars," so we remain
mum on that, no telling how many
funerals we might become accessory
to should we be so indiscreet. They
no doubt committed the same error
that we did, supposing as a natural
consequence that if he were employ
ed as a writer by . Republican
press that be must have been . Re
publican. Aa it regards journalistic
courtesy, we take no pleasure in in
dulging in personalities. We never
have alluded to the editor of the
Democrat except in connection
with some principle upon which we
thought he occupied very inconsist
ent ground, and have never, we be
lieve, resorted to abase or slang.
The Democrat, however, in its pe
culiar ideas of editorial courtesy,
has seen proper in alluding to na to
parade our profession of the minis
try before his readers, as if there
! wu an argument in that more po-
tout than anything else he coulil

Senator Kelly was elected to the

He has had ample time to show !j
adaptability to that position since

stands effectually. So far as ae-1

Senatorial pay from Uncle Sam,
without returning any equivalent.
There are four more years of this
worthless representation to be en-

energetic, influential, ta'cnted man
j will be substituted in his place.
