The Wool. Hakket. Boston ad
vices quote wool Arm. with a demand
from inanutaeturers. some ipec
latlve inquiry . The wool on hand is
barely adequate to the demand, and
with tlie resumption of work by mills,
now lying idle hot soon to resume,
and the great revival of business which
Is now confidently anticipated, there
will be a scarcity of wool before the
season closes, and a consequent ad
vance in prices.
A SroGESnoN. In view of tlie
tightness of the Government exche
quer, brought about by the prepara
tions for whatever might turn up in
tbe Cuban affair, and the payment of
the $20,000,000 indebtedness, we sug
gest that Congressmen show their pat
riotism by refunding all "back pay."
and donating their pay as Congressmen
for the next year to the Government.
However, we expect if they should act
on this advice very few of them, Indi
vidually, would ever return to specie

Scbkemehed. Tlie Virginiwt was
s irrendered to Capt Whitney of the
steam yacht Dispatch, on the morning
of the 17th, at Bahla Honda. The
vessel was in a very filthy condition
and was leaking considerably when
surrendered. It would seem that this
Government has escaped a costly war
by simply showing the necessary nerve
and determination to be treated on the
"dead thieving square" by Spain. A j
threat from Uncle Samuel, nowa
days. Is sufficient to bring tbe best of
them to their milk.
Cuban Slavery. The question of
human bondage, as It now exists in
Cuba, is agitating the mother country,
Spain. The Government Is deter
mined to bring the matter before the
Cortez for action, but desires the
slave-owners ot Cuba to suggest some
plan to certainly abolish slavery with
out Injuring tlie agricultural interests
of the Island. If the friends of tbe
butchered Frey, Verona and Ryan
could have tbe privilege of interview
ing them (the Cuban slave owners) for
n few minutes, tlie abolishment of
slave masters wou'd be accomplished
right speedily ou that island.
While discussing the terrible cor
ruption and fraud practised by Repub
licans during' the last election, for
which the Oregontan only of all the j
Democratic papers in the State pos
sesses the patent right, would It not
be well for that journal to tell the
waiting public how much a certain
aspirant for Senatorial honors, then
claiming to be a Republican, paid for
a single vote to enable him to secure
his election as such United States Sen
rtor; and at tlie same time explain by
what trick he succeeded in keeping out
of the penitentiary after having com
mitted so flagrant a crime ? A journal
claiming such exalted purity and hon
esty should not forego such an oppor
tunity of proving its sincerity in sbow-
l"g ""Jr" $n P1""!
Was It $800, as generally stated,
wa it more?
Stephens, of Georgia, delivered a
speech in the House tlie other day,
defending che salary grab and advocat
ing a still greater increase of pay.
The C'onntitiUiun, a paper in which he
is half owner, denounces the salary
grab and all the Northern members
who took it and demands that they
rote for its repeal. Stephens will have
to reconstruct his paper or himself.
We believe Judge Williams will be
confirmed as Chief Justice, In spite of
all the Res and disreputable means
ewployed by tbe trio of soreheads in
Portland, however loud they may toot
l heir tin whistles. Honesty and worth
must and will prevail over their oppo
jsites. H.utv. The filiation of officers
nf Buyley Chapter. R. A. M.. came
of Tbnrwlnr night, and was a pleas
ant cruitf to all in attendance.
Following is from the report of pro
ceedings in Congress on the 12th Inst:
The House went Into Committee of
the Whole and took up the bill ap
propriating 4, 000, 000 for extraordina
ry expense of the naval service.
" In the course of discussion Cox
criticised the course of the Adminlstre
tlon in the Virginius matter, and
made som reflections upon tlie appar
ent temper of tlie House on the sub
JIawley replied in a sharp speech,
in which he paid a high tribute to the
dignified and conservative course of
the Administration in (the matter,
saying that, nothing that Grant ever
did. from the time Tie left West Point
until he passed through the Wilderness
and came into the Presidency, did
him more honor than the patient firm
ness with which he lias faced the
Snish difficulty, and settled it to the
satisfaction of all
Breck also took occasion to eulogize
the Administration for its course on
Cuban affairs, saying It there was any
thing the President luid managed well
it was the negotiations with Spain.
The President might have plunged
tlie country into difficulties, and per
haps have aggrandized himself at tlie
exjiense of tlie country . but the course
he had pursued nad been extremely
The discussion was carried on for
some time longer, when the committee
arose and reported the bill to the
House, and it was passed.
The Democrat asks the Ongonim to
throw off all disguise, all hypocrisy,
and come out boldly as a Democratic
organ. Will the Oregontan act on the
advice? Not much. Should it come
out boldly and acknowledge that all
Its sympathies have been and are now
with the Democratic party the patron
age which now sustains it would be
cut off and sudden death would be its
portion. The policy of its master and
owner is to claim allegiance to the Re-
publican party ; swear eternal love for
the principles and tenets of the party
so that the persistent and cowardly
attacks it is daily waging upon it may
have the desired effect of creating dis
cord and inharmony in its nfnks.
California. On the 18th the vote
for U. 8. Senator in tlie California
Legislature stood : Booth 56, Farley
41, Sliafter 21, Pendegast 1. By the
absence of Higbie (Independent), from
sickness, Booth loses one vote.
The Or(pn(an asks Snyder, ot the
Reporter, if lie don 't want to buy a dog.
If Snyder does want to buy, and the
Oregoniau man is for sale, Snyder
couldn't invest in a cur of more reus
ability than the Oregontan man.
The Ditch Surprised. The tele
gram brings a rumor that the Acheens
had made a night attack on the Dutch
forces, completely surprising them,

50c; children under twelve years, half
price. The Aesthetics Society, we
came near omitting to mention, of the
same Institute, will lend their aid in
making the occasion a success.
A Love Affair. The Oregoniau
is In love with the Democrat, if we may
hollovp the naaertfnna nf tlie editor nf
the latter. Good. Now let the twain
marry, and "damned be be who first
cries, hold, enough !"
Conciliation. It is announced that
conflicting interests in the Spanish
Cortes liave been conciliated, and the
establishment of the Castelar Govern
Rumor has It that Deady is writing
those bitter personal articles against
Judge Williams that appear dally In
the Oregontan. If the rnmor be true,
Deady should be invited to resign the
office he is disgracing.
