The Htdletin Is our authority for stating that tlu" Indian Indemnity Bill, introduced by Senator Mitchell, does not limit the claims for losses suffered through tltn Modoc war, but exteids to all losses suffered by Indian depre dations not heretofore adjusted. A correspondent of an Ohio journal says that lie has eaten nice, ripe toma toes, about Christmas times. The plan of preserving them was to pull them before frost, and lay them away in a loft where tliey will not freeze, and tiie green ones will ripen. Try the experiment, some one, next fall. The State Board of Examination con venes at Salem on Monday next, for the purpose of granting State certifi cates and Hie diplomas to those who wish to avail themselves of the oppor tunity. The report that Woods was to be re moved from the Governorship of Utah created considerable excitement among the Gentiles at Salt Lake, who insist tha t such a removal at present would p rove disastrous to tiie Territory. it i. ofill a mooted auestion wliethcr Hon. George 11. Wl Haras is to be the! next Chief Justice, but tnose who in tlu. hAst, thai we to git at a knowledge of the true condition of tiie nomination, assert mat w will certainly be confirmed by the Senate. It is to be Hoped by all good and true men that the assertion may prove true. On Wednesday last the Oregonian made a clean breast of It for once, and declared, in its leading article, that tliere was no furtlier "Inducement" for it to remain in the Republican party. Just so. As it has done all in its pow er, ever stuoe the defeat of Its chief for the Scuatorshlp, to disrupt and destroy the party, this confession comes rather late. But honest and consistent Re publicans who have so long clung to the Oregonian, hoping against hope that It would get over its little pet, and come back to the folds of tiie party, now see plainly the deep-laid scheme ot this traitorous slieet, and will cart it from tbem In its mad fury over the defeats which have met it In every attack upon the Republican party It hasdestroyed Itself. Farewell to the cornit and rotten wreck. The expends attendant npon calling the late special United States Grand Jury In Portland was about twenty five hundred dollars! This Special Grand Jury, called to find Indict' ineuts against parties for bribery at tiie recent election, found four indict ments. Two of those indicted were acquitted outright, and the Indictment against the other two were thrown out ot Court, liecane the evidence to sus tain them was insufficient. Thus ends this farce, and fully justifies the tele gram of the Attorney General to Glbbs. tlmt tins proceeding was calcu lated to entail unusual and needless expense. It also adds more proof, if more were needed, of the utter deprav ity of the call of soreheads its Port land. All their false swearing ami hrlliery schemes have failed, and they stand before the people of Oregon to day branded as men without honor or principle, who stand ready to do any thing tlmt will aid In the accomplish ment of tlielr malignant schemes of ven geauce against the Republican party. The Bishop of Lincoln Is heralded MM nH4empeinee man, having preached a sermon In Ms catliedral against, the Temperance Pledge, de. nound'ig It as imscriptaral, and asser ting that It "undermines the Godhead of Christ' -whlch, to say the least, I curious figure. How utterly powerless are the deep est laid schemes of the con-opt and vicious over truth and honesty, is wit nessed In the failure of every scheme put forth by tiie little ring of soreheads In Portland to bring disgrace upon tiie party that has nursed and fed them, and given them all the prominence, and more, that, their abilities. Individ ually and collectively, would warrant. With the Court. Jury, District Attor ney, perjured witnesses to swear to just such evidence as was wanted, and everything else in their favor, the sore head ring succeeded in getting a Salem repeater, who voted for Nesmith, to plead guilty a conviction which could and would have been reached by the next regular jury, without extra cost to the people at a cost to tiie people of S-2,500, while they utterly failed to make good their sworn statements with regard to bribery and corruption in Portland. And now this ring ot sorelieads stand out before the people of Oregon, convicted as malignant and willful falsifiers on every count. Having sounded the lowest depths of Infamy, their organ now announces that it sees no further ""inducement" to train with the Republican party! and has "officially" gone over to De mocracy. If Democracy can stand It good ; the Republican party is relieved of a grievous burden of sin by its withdrawal. Hope Grange No. 24.

He belongs to his wife, or his children, or his relations, or his creditors, or to society, In some form or other. It is for their especial good and behalf that be lives and works, and they kindly allow him to retain a certain percent age of his gains to administer to his own pleasures or wants. He has his body, and that Is all, and even for that he is answerable to society. In short, society is the master and man Is the servant; and it is entirely according as society turns out a good or bad master, whether he turns out a bad or a good servant. . The sorehead organ asks "What of the Night ?" It must present a terrible dark and gloomy prospect to a sheet whose only object is to vent its spleen on respectable people and secure the largest "Inducements" therefor. It Is stated that Victor Hugo resem bles Jnbal A. Early. When Hugo learns the fact he will no doubt either become Insane or commit suicide. Most anybody would do one or the other if he thought lie looked like Early. The following common-place Is from the Lynchburg (Tenn.,) Pioneer of the 2Sth nit.: "The weather for the past few days has been splendid for killing hogs, and a great many have taken ad vantage of It" How much will the Democratic party be gainer In the future by the aid of the Oregonian, and how long will It remain true to Its new love? are the newest conundrums asked by Demo crats hereabouts. New Hampshire is proud of the pro duct of "a single shoe factory."

And that is true rest. The Oreijnniau publishes approving ly, what purports to be the letter of a correspondent of the Pittsburg Under, from Washington. This correspond ent asserts that a prominent lawyer of Washington, whom he interviewed, told him that Williams "knows abso lutely nothing of law," and that he cannot "write two consecutive words of English." Now every Oregonlan knows these assertions to be bald-laced lies utterly false. Yet this yenile sheet publishes them here in Oregon approvingly, knowing them to be false, and at the same time pretending to be friendly to Williams ! Look at the cool mendacity of the thing. The effrontery and cheeklness of the Or. yonimls beyond all precedent -It Is a regular whafr-you-may-call-lt on wheels ! TOO BUST. A strong-minded woman in Detroit made the following gentle reply to a politician who had called at her house to get her husband to go to the polls and vote. "No. sir, he can't go. He's washing now, and he's got to Iron to-morrow, and If he wasn't doing anything he couldn't go. I run this 'ere house, I do, and If any one votes It'll be this same Mary Jane."

The subject of this brief sketch died at his residence in this city this morn ing December 27. 1873, at 4:4B, He was taken sick Friday morning, De cember 19, and only lived one short week. He was bom in Wapallo coun ty, Iowa, May 14, 1845, ami was con seqitentlv nearly twenty-nine years of age at tiie time of his death. He re moved from Iowa to this State with his parents in 1862, who settled near town, and for the greater portion of the time lias lived with his parents in the city. Already his fatlier and two sisters have preceded him to the land of unknown and unknow able myste ries, and their bodies repose in the quiet grave vard within sight of his home. With no fear in his heart, he met the dread conqnerer and passed quietly and painlessly from the scenes of earth. For several years he has been pub lisher and principal writer for tiie Journal. All who knew htm know how steadfastly and earnestly he bat tled for what he conceived to be right, and with what strength and power, he opposed, from the purest motive, what was wrong. As kind as a brotla-r to those ni distress, none knew him well who did not love him as one. As a mau. uo one could meet him without being attracted by his inherent good ness. As a friend, he was one of the firmest and truest we have ever known, lie leaves a mother and brother in this city, a brother in Washington, and a sister In Olympla. many relatives near town, and numerous friends who mourn his early departure from our midst. Eugene Journal. Distressful. There Is consterna tion In the camp of the Bedrock De mocracy. The sorehead gang begin to crowd In on tbem, and with charac teristic modesty demand tiie right to "run" the Democratic party and hold the offices. It promises to be another experience like that of Slnbad, with the old man of the tea on his back. Bulletin. He rose to go away. SU whtopered, as she accompanied hint to the door, "I shall beat home next Sttnday even ls" 'ftosWl It" he rtBlkxk The Democrats and Back Par It seems hardly credible that the De mocratic Congressional csiochfCw hlch In a much larger sense than the cor responding machinery ot the Republi can organization Is understood to make laws for the party, could have taken the position it did on Saturday night toward the act known as the Salary Grab and the men who sup ported it. We have seen the party commit some egregious blunders in the past dozen years, but never any so utterly stupid, so absolutely suicidal as this. The action of the last Con gress In passing the Salary Grab bill was a blunder and a crime. The Re publican majority, though a smaller portion of hem than of Democrats voted for the bill, were held responsi ble for it. The indignation of the people was thoroughly aroused, as the late elections testify, against tiie out rage, and it Is also testified by the same elections that their indignation was visited upon the party In power. Some of the Democratic leaders. In deed most of them. sa the opportu nity, and In their conventions and on the stump made the most of It. Their newspaper organs were full of denun ciations of the great swindle, their eonventlons condemned it by resolu tion in the most unmeasured terms, and their orators never tired of ring ing the changes upon it. In every State where they made a can vass this was their leading topic; upon this peg they hung the weight ot their opposition to the Administration. In Pennsylvania tliey repudiated a Salary Grabber who had" long been one of the most prominent and influential of their leaders, and in this State they carried a clause in their resolutions of condemnation denouncing Democrats as well as Republicans who voted for it or who had not renounced their share in the plunder. It Is not too much to say that whatever of suc cess that party could claim in the late elections was attributable to Its persis tent charging of the responsibility for this unpopular measure upon the Re publican majority in Congress, and its equally constant and earnest disclaim ers on its own account and repudia tion of all connection with its authors and abettors. The Democratic party, it may be observed, Is not so flush of capital that it can afford to throw away op portunities to take advantage of the mistakes of its opponents. There would have been, to be sure, good reason to doubt the sincerity of the party In denouncing a measure for which a majority of its representatives In Congress had voted, but this had already been done by its conventions in official utterances and by the party orators and organs in a sweeping and demonstrative way. They bad carried elections on it. It was the first win ning card they had played for a long time. But when the representatives of the party came together at Wash ington, tliey disclosed at once the hol lowness of their ante-election profes sions and promises, and went hack on the entire record. The reason for It is. of course, plain enough. A majority of tlicm hid voted for the bill and touched tiie plunder. What was the party to them, except as they could use It to secure office and what was office but opportunity to get money out of the public treasury ? It was not for them to make sacrifices for the party. If there was any sacrifice to be made they were quite ready to sac rifice the party to their owii greed, and then take their chances before the people. And so they flung in the faces of all the Democratic Conten tions that had denounced the Grab, the nomination of Fernando Wood, a chief Salary Grabber, for Speaker, and by that act saddled themselves with more of the responsibility for the measure than could with any show of reason be charged to their opponent. The New-Hampshire Democratic Con gressman who stumped his district for re-election last spring on the ground ot his opposition to the Grab, and immediately after election drew his plunder, was a fit forerunner of the caucus of last Saturday. He was an excellent specimen of his party. The Administration party has been guilty of some great follies and great crimes, nt to repudiate mat party and set up tn Its place one that has no more consistency, sincerity or honesty than has been shown by the Democrats ill this matter would be turning out blunderers to Install thieves tn their places. The truth Is, and It Is use less to undertake to disguise it. the Democratic party Is hopeless. It has survived Its principles, Its sense of honor, its Integrity, and Its capacity for usefulness, ft lags superfluous. The best service It can do the country lajlo dbband.-A'. Y. Tribune, ..

George Butler, while In Washington recently, gave a correspondent some fresh and very in teresting information tn relation to tlw wealth and magnificence of the Pasha or Egypt: Said Pasha Is described as a person of culture, speaking French with ease, and English a little ; fully educated at the Polytechnic school In Paris, and wearing the dress of Christian people. He is a shrewd anil rteb merchant, and not a soldier by propensity; and his income and the luxury of his court ex ceed the tales of Haroun al Raschid's splendor. He has nn income of $1 10. -000,000 per annum, or more than halt as much as the whole annual expense of the United States Government, In clusive of the cost of tiie public debt. To keep our 50,000 or 60,000 office holders, our army, our navy, do the public printing, etc., requires fcl.eO'!. 000 a month. The Pasha, who has no more subjects than there are citizens of New York State, has. by Mr. But ler's careful estimation, between nine and ten millions a month, or more than three hundred thousand a day. lie lias twenty-seven palaces, all tiie corporate property or that which with us would be controlled by cororativi in the country, and no law whatever but what lie can think of or will from day to day. He has four wives and a vast harem, yet he ts temperiite and prudent, and still lie is not happy, lie wants to be a King ; but the domi nation of Turkey sits upon his dreams like the gobbler upon the full boy alter Christmas dinner. As an indication of Said Pasha's wealth, it Is related that the Empress of France said to him. in Paris : "Viceroy, I should like very much to visit your Pyramids, but I cannot ride on a camel, and I suppose 1 can net go there by any road. ' "Your Majesty can go there by eith er railway or highway, as you like," said the Viceroy. When she went tliere at the opening of the Suez Canal, the Empress found a road made, twelve miles long, across the desert, lighted with gas, shaded all the way with transplanted trees ; and half way on was a palace for her re pose, with a second palace to entertain her at the Pyramids all especially made for this one journey.
