The Georgia election for members
of the Legislature last week, passed ofT
quietly. There was little opposition,
except in a few counties, to the Dem
ocratic candidates, and it is expected
that not to exceed tout-teen Republi
cans will be returned in both Houses,
thus giving the Democrats a majority
of two hundred and five on joint ballot.
The Legislature of Missippl last
winter passed a bill providing a new
charter for Xew Orleans, in which the
appointment of all city officers, from
Mayor down, was placed in the hands
of the Governor. Under a decision of
the State Supreme Court, the Governor
can hold a bill from one session of the
Legislature to the next without ap
proving it. It is now feared tbat
Kellogg will approve tbis bill, after
keeping it in his possession for over
eight months, and proceed to appoint
the said city officers. The charter
election takes place on the 2d of next
month, the Conservatives having al
ready nominoted candidates. An ad
dress has been issue. 1 by the Conserva
tives, protesting against Kellogg's us
ing this power placed in his hands,
though expressing the hope that he
has no such intentions. The address
declares that any such act would be
attended with the most serious conse
quences, greatly endangering the pub
lic peace, etc. It is further asserted
that intimidation, organized ami thor

in consequence of which the great body
of colored voters will not register at

Our Legislators have bad the matter
of keeping our insane lie fore them,
and the question has been warmly dis
cussed. Xo one for a moment disputes
that it is the dnty of the State to look
closely after these unfortunates that
is a question that none dispute. The
question is an economical one only.
If our insane can be as comfortably
lodged, fed and clothed, and proper
medical attention and care paid them,
as heretofore, for from one dollar and
a half to two dollars and a h.ilf less
per week, it is demanded of our Leg
islators that the old contract should
not be renewed. It is asserted that
Dr. Carpenter offers to contract to
keep the insane of the State, and care
for them in all things as well as they
have heretofore leen cared for, at a
much less price than the State has been
paying. It is said that should his
proposition be accepted, the State
would save many thousands of dollars
annually. If the statement be true,
and sufficient guaranty can be given
by Dr. Carpenter, that he 13 able and

A tion of wheat and oats. We call the at
tention ot tanners to the fact that we have
erected the finest warehouse in the Slate,
a a large expense, and are In position to
handle satisfactorily an immense quan
til y of grain. Our house has a capacity for
200,000 bushels of Wheat
at one time, and Is located on the margin
of the Willamette River, and provided with
a side track lrom t he O. A C. R. R.. so that
shipments may be made dally by rail, and
as often by waierasboaung facilities olfter.
We have two iarge suction tans, in addi
tion to other fans, attached to the bouse,
run by water power, and are tons pre
all the wheat received. Can take In and
clean 10.000 bushels per day. Cleaned wheat
Is worih much more in all foreign markets
than fonl wheat, and none should be ship
ped without cleaning. Our charges will lie
Ave cents a bushel on wheat, and four
cents on oats. We have
SIXTY THOUSAND SACKS
to furnish those storing wheat with us,
tree i o those whose wheat we purchase,
and at the lowest cash price to those who
sell t heir wheat, from our house to other
buyers. Persons storing with us are at
lilierty to sell to whom they please. Those
who reside on t he west side of the river
will have ferriage free. Will be in the
