General J. Gonzales has been elected
President of the Republic of San Do
mingo. The first move of the new
administration will probably be to an
nul the Samana lease.
Speaking of the gold product of the
future in California, the Alta contends
that, instead of the mines being "play
ed out," mining interests have liardly
commenced. The gravel beds of tliat
State alone, although as yet but little
U known as regards their extent, it Is
estimated, are capable of yielding from
$12,000,000 to $100,. 000,000 per an
num for five or six hundred years to
come. Velly good.
Sheriff Bratman, of New York, and
his. deputy. Shields, have got them
selves into trouble through iguoring
an order of the Court to confine oue
Genet in the Tombs until sentence was
pronounced. The order was not obey
ed, and Genet escaped. Brennau and
Gibbs can now condole oneanother.
It is announced that Gen. Sickles

Advices from Washington in regard
to Judge Williams' confirmation as
Chief Justice, are some what contradic
tory. One is to the effect that the
President has stated emphatically that
his nomination would not be with
drawn, and that be never contempla
ted such a thing. On the other band
it Is said that Williams will request
the President after toe holidays, to
withdraw bis nomination, fearing de
feat. While we know that every
means known to hoodlum tactics will
be resorted to to defeat Judge Will
iams, we still hope that all their false
swearing, misrepresentation and down
right lying will only leooii on the
heads of the authors, and that he may
soon don the robes of an office he is
go well qualified to fill with honor and
(listuieuished credit to himself and
country the Chief Justiceship.
Senator Mitchell, thus early in the
session of Congress, has given
evidence of the manner in which bis
time is to be employed, and the way
he intends fulfilling his promises to
the people of Oregon. He has already
introduced in the Senate several bills
of the greatest importance to the in
terests of Oregon. Among them we
tnay mention one to construct canal
and locks at the Cascades and Dalles
of the Columbiaa work of the ut
most importance to Eastern Oregon,
opening up free' navigation on that
river harbor of refuge at Port. Or

fact Chat he has been hounded ever
since his election, with a spite and ma
lignity hitherto supposed to belong
only to fiends incarnate, he has gone
to work in earnest to procure snch leg
islation as the State stands most in
need ot, and as will realize the largest
returns to the general good. As an
indication that Senator Mitchells' abil
ities are duly recognized in Washing
ton, we see that be occupies positions
on three of the most important Senate
committees. With Mitchell to repre
sent us in the Senate, Oregon may ex
pect every aid from the General Gov
ernment that ability, zeal and hard
work can obtain. But while Mitchell
is exerting every energy to advance
the interests of Oregon and the wel
fare of her people, a ring of soreheads
in Portland are doing all that black
hearted malignity, without scruple or
conscience, can invent to injure his in
fluence in the Senate, and to create a
feeling of distrust among the people
of thisState. This persecution, which
has been prosecuted in season and out
of season, emanated and Is kept up en
tirely by a clique in Portland, at the
bead of which is Judge Deady. Out
side of this ring there is no feeling
against Mitchell in the Stale. The
Oregonim, in iimtation of the policy
adopted by Bush years ago in this
State, is fast succeeding in convincing
the people that it is not controlled by
principle, but simply by its hates; that
it is not, nor has not been for months
past, a Republican paper, but is labor
ing with might and main to defeat and
utterly destroy Republicanism and
build up Democracy, using every and
all means to that end. Can such a
traitorous sheet have influence with

George H. Williams. The In
dianapolis Journal says of George H.
Williams, in an article on his nomina
tion for the Chief Justiceship :
Thus far he has proved himself equal
to the requirements of every position
to which he has been called, and there
is no reason to believe that he will be
found unequal to the demands of the
place to which he is now assigned.
His judgment is excellent. He rarely
makes mistakes. He is self-reliant,
without being arrogant self-asserting,
without, rendering himself obnoxious
to those with whom he is brought into
contact His integrity has never been

the Denver papers. The .Yeirs closes
its report of the second lecture as fol

audience with bated breath, the words
sinking deep into every heart and evi
dently leaving a lasting impression
regarding the infamies of the horrible
system under which it was her misfor

facts that have come tinder her per

Tweed as an Author. Tweed is
writing a history of his lite. He in
tends to publish it. He has told his
friends that his purpose is to give an
inner history of his memorable reign
in the polities of New York. He has
been treated shabbily by his old con
federates. They have abandoned and
denounced him as a thief. They go
about, as the Times says, repudiating
all connection with him. But there is
aflutter among them as they learn
that Tweed is resolved to write and
publish. He will tell, it is skid, all
about the manner in which Tammany's
business was done; how Legislatures
were bought, bow Judges were han
dled; how the public revenues were
stolen and who were the principals,
agents and instruments in the work.

is stated that Tweed, just before
going to prison, wrote a number of
letters to bis old associates, warning
them that if he was to remain in the
