V. S. OOlrlnl Paper tor Oregon.
SATURDAY, SEPT. 27, 1873.
Republican Candidate.
FOB congress,
HIRAM SMITH,
OF LINN.
Speaking Wednesday Evening.
The campaign was opened on Wed
nesday evening, at the Court House,
by J. W. Nesraitb, Democratic can
didate for Congress. He commenced
to "iiarate" by saying that, owing to
laborious work in tlie campaign and
unexpected sickness, lie 'vaa scarcely
able to address the people. After tell
ing a rat story, he declared that the
present State officials were surely hon
est. He then denounced condemned
and execrated Ben Holladay for cor
rupting our legislators, and took a ter-
rible oath to oppose monopolies every
where. Denied that labor and capital
were mutually dependent, and proved
the same by saying that he could labor
with capital. Repeated the stale
Democratic falsehoods in regard to the
Credit Mobilier. He held that the Re
publican party were responsible for
the back salary steal because they were
in the majority. He forgot to mention
that had the Democratic majority
furnished as large a proportion against
the bill as the Republican, the bill
would have been deflated. He said
that Giant would be held in history as
the man who stole 100.000. By the
way, he didn't take it as "back pay,"
as Senator Xesinith did at one time.
He wanted to loan Sconchin his grind
stone to whet his knife to scalp Mr.
Meauuam. Declared that the Peace
Policy of the Government was nncoii
stitntional, on the ground of uniting
- church and state i we suppose because
it recommends a humane policy). Re
hashed the state tariff arguments of
the Democracy. Denounced the pro
visions in the charter, for the building
oi our railroads, which says they shall
be built of American iron, and said a
great many other things too tedious to
mention as well as of little importance.
Mr. Nesmitb is not of extra ability as
a speaker or reasoner, and we were
greatly disappointed in the vaunted
champion of Democracy.
JUDGE KELSAV.
At the conclusion of Mr. Xesmitli,
Jude Kelsay took the stand. He
alluded to Nesmith's remarks about
the inability of Mr. Smith to peak in
? public. Referred to Gen. Jackson,
and others, who were in the same con-
dition. Assailed successfully the Denr1Ilealj TMg wU, be ve ch

He showed that while the Democrats
preached, they never practiced it. As
proof he alluded to the purchase of

Xational Bank question President

up on the "lock and dam" business.

monopolies by referring to the Oregon

Albany, Or., Sept, 2ti, 1873.
Ed. Registkr : Referring to an
intemperate and libelous leader in the
Democrat of cliU morning, I have to
say, that I never asked Mr. Lincoln
for a reappointment to the Indian
Superintcndeney of Oregon or Wash
ington. 1 did not leave Portland till after I
was removed and relieved from office
by Gen. W. W. Miller, of Olympia,
and William Rector, of Salem.
I did not go East till late In the fall
of 1861, and then as an agent for the
Brownsville Woolen Factory. This
was months after the two gentlemen
were inducted into office.
A life-long Democrat. I was a patri
ot, and urged all parties to unite in ex
tinguishing the (lames of civil war. I
diil all in my power for peace in
Oregon. I was active in behalf ot the
Christian Commission, and efforts to
raise U. S. Volunteers in Oregon.
All that Mr. Brown lias said regard
ing my status during the war. is false.
1 have not endorsed gedtustion, em
be:zlement, adultery, bigamy, and Mor
mmu'.iiih but Martin Brown has violat-
a, 1)rincinlt.s of manhood and oth
obligations in the utterance of wanton
and reckless falsehoods.

Extracts from a Letter.
To get a clear understanding of the
position occupied by Rev. E. R. Geary,
read the following extracts from a let
ter written by him to Charles Hand
ley, Esq., of Yamhill county, dated
the 24th inst., in reply to one from
that gentleman :
The resolution of endorsement, as you
are pleased to terin it, I do not regard
as a part of the platform, nor at all
binding the candidate to its defense.
When I saw it first, on the evening of
its adoption. I declared it "essentially
alien fo, and calculated to embarrass
the object of the convention"; so I
wrote to my friend In Portland ; and
so, for obvious reasons, I believe to
day. Hence I declined an almost
unanimous nomination In the face of a
procedure threatening to disorganize
and disrupt the party. I could only
be understood by declining the nomi
nation. This conclusion was emergent
and instantaneous ; hut mature delib
eration declares it right.
1 deplore this resolution as a grave
mi-fake; but it was not mine; and I
will incur no part of the responsibility
of the meditated default. My part to
ward victory, if spared to vote, will be
done, by casting my ballot for the
nominee. If error attach to these
views, it is neither wilful) nor inten
tional. The success of the Republican
party, as. in rny judgement, conduc
ing most to the honor and prosperity
of ohr State and nation, is my anient
aspiration.
Theatrical, The Rosedale Dram
atic Troupe have been delighting our
people nightly (hiring the week, at the
Pacific Opera Douse. It is without
doubt the best theatrical company that
ever visited this city, and lias attracted
full houses each night.
Silver and Gold. Four boxes of
coin came up by express for X. Baum
on yesterday the first instalment of
wheat money. One large box con
tained silver, six thousand dollars, the
other three containing gold, fifty-four
thousand dollars or
thousand dollars.
a total of sixty
Still Pouring In. There has been
little or no abatement of the receipts of
wheat during the week, and it still
comes pouring in. The price still re
mains at $1 per bushel although we
hear of no sales.
A Runaway. Uncle Jimmy Douth
itt was considerably bruised up by be
ing thrown from his wagon, on Wed
nesday evening, on the occasion of his
team running away. The wagon was
thoroughly demoralized.
CIRCUIT COURT. Linn County Cir
cuit Court will convene in this city on
Monday, Octolier 13th, two weeks
earlier than usual.
PREMIUMS. The Domestic sewing
machine took the first premium on
machine, and the Singer took first
premium on the best samples of work
Roads Somewhat dusty, but the
heated term is about over, and human

much, since Wednesday, as it did.
