Population of the Country.
There arc some notable deductions to
be made Ironi tlic census taken in a
number of tlie States during the last
year. One of the inot noticeable is the
attention from the ik1!b of a large
number of citizens. In fact, this evil
seems to be on the increase. As to in
crease ot Hiulatioiij the returns from
fourteen States (in one of whicli, Michi
gan, the census was taken in 1871,)
fchow an addition to that of 1870 ot at
least 2,000,000 j arsons. The accurate
character of the returns from three States
South I arolina, Louisiana and Texas
are disputed. In the two first named
States the enumerations are asserted to
" have been incompetent. In Texas the
returns are an estimate based on a school
census. Tho actual increase in tlie
other eleven States in 1,612,000. This
makes approximately an increase for tho
whole country of about six millions.
The present decade when it closes will
show a larger proiortionate increase
than any of those that have preceded it.

As the time for helding our County
Convention approaches, 1'epublicans
should begin to bestir themselves, and
consider what is their duty in the prem
ises. 1 he cause of the continued defeat
jf the Republican party in Linn hereto
fore, has not been so much ior lack of
voters, as it has been because of lack o!
harmony, want of union, iu the rank
and file of the patty. Had there been
no dissensions in our ranks, and had the
full llepublicau vele becu polled at the
last election, all can now see how dif
ferent would have been the result.
The object and aim of the Democra
cy of Liun especially, has been, and still
is, to stir up strife and create bitterness
between individual members of the Re
publican jtarty of Linn ; and they, the'
leaders of the Democracy have left no
stone unturned to effect this grand ob
ject. They reason : "If the Republi
cans ot Linu unite, then the day of Demo
cratic rule the day of high taxes is
-passed away forever ; as with the inau
guration of Republican officials, our
wrong-doing and misdeeda will be un

outrageous taxation, unite, and working
shoulder to shoulder, we shall succeed

the interest of the whole people, and

THE BK-T OF ALL CHARITIES.
As there are poor people everywhere
who iinil be relieved, I am going to give
your readers tlie inetliod of work adopted
!y the most useful and cflevtive charity in
tlie world. Si. John's Guild is a body of
men and women in I his city, organized
for the purKe of helping the deserving
poor. The officers and workers get no
salaries. Every rioilar contributed goes
directly to I lie relief of thw poor, without
being pared down a particle. Any mem
ber may recommend deserving people, and
ascertain the exact circumstances. Tliey
get tlie number in the family, Its earnings,
and wliat tliey most need. Tlien the liend
gets a tiekct,and on presentation ticket Is
issued on which they can draw rations
once a week. The Guild lias an immense
warehouse on Varick St., which is filled
with meats, flour, groecrivs, and medicines
all of which they buy at prime cost, and
3,000 families are wholly, or in part, sup
plied tltcrefrom. At this time 25,000 per
sons are living on thU charity, aud tlicre is
not an unworthy -person among them.
Every one has to give a reference before an
ounce is drawn, and tlie moment- tlie pen
sioner sets work the supply Is stopped. In
summer tlieir work is mostly caring for
sick children. Tlie Guild own tlieir own
barge, and have it fitted up for excursions
up tlie river with sick children, which they
give every day. It is a slglit to go down
to tlie warehouse and see the crowds of
hungry people carrying away tlieir rations.
Last Thursday over 10,000 were present
during tlie day, and all were supplied.
Tlie Guild sliows what organization will
do, and liow effective it may be. Every
dollar is contributed without solicitation,
and they iiaveuodifficulty in getting funds
lor every one knows tliat what is given
goes directly to tlie object for which it is
MOODY & SAN KEY.
The meetings at tlie Hippodrome arc
increasing, if anything. Extra services
liave been put on this week, one in tlie
afternoon to accommodate people who live
out of town. These are announced as
lectures, and Monday the street were
placaided with huge posters in tlie sliape
of theatre Posters, bearing (lie title of the
first lecture, "On the lilood." Xo other
intimation was given that it was not a
medical discourse, as every one took it to
be on reading it at the first glance. The
church members who can command their
time, liave given up every other pursuit
and attend meetings at all hours, profess
ing to find great enjoyment in them. It is
necessary to give np everything -lse to
attend, for on 3 must go an hour betore-
piiand, and there is no time left of half a day
if one attends a meeting. The great doors
flanked by the winged Assyrian figures,
that saw the Hipiiodrome pnt to other
ires, and like their antetypes, survive all
clianges, are open at halt-past eleven, for
the morning meeting, and the throng
which melts into the hall half fills it at
once. The audience is unconcerned, ladies
cliatt Jig with their friends, ministers in
tlie g -tilery scats close to the speakers'
railing are deep in low-toned earnest chat
about -tlie advisory council, tlie prospects
of Oliver Johnson's new paper, or the
latest from the inquiry rooms, and Mr.
Moody's last method. The only thing
that would distinguish the meeting from a
coliseum concert in jubilee time in Boston,
is tlie number of very poor, wretched look-
ng people who come. It was the only
sign that these meetings were called in the
name of the Christ who gathered the mul
titudes together, and had compassion on
the i ii because they were as sheep without
a slicphcrd. There were such poor, de
crepit old women, iu garments barely
decent to cover them, past all decency of
neatnes?, and bonnets barely rescued from
tlie coal-hole, children with unkempt hair,
and frowsy garments, brought by bending
grandmothers, or drawn by curiosity into
the free meeting, men evidently out ot
work, filthy, desponding and forlorn ; the
back streets and alleys sitting down beside
ladies in furs and velvets, and spruce young
men with flowers in their button-holes.
Mr. Moody and his wife are tlie guests of
Wm. E. Dodge, Jr., ot tlie firm Phelps,
Dodge & Co., and his sons liave lately been
placed at one of tlie best schools on Fifth
avenue, tlieir expenses being defrayed by
wealthy friends. Tlie evangelists do not
receive anything for their labors, beyond
their expenses, but their friends take care
that they shall have as good a living as
New York can give. Tlie money made by
the sale of hymn- books goes to young Men's
Christian Association. It is said that the
debt of this body lias been extinguished.
and the fund from 'the Sankey hymn-book
will be available for charitable work.
The warm weather allows tlie greatest
latitude in the matter of fashion. It is not
uncommon to see thick jackets discarded.
and the black silk worn with a lace fichu;
or tlie bead fringe cape of last fall ; again,
suits in two shades of gray or brown de
bege, will be tlie first change for good, and
with these are over-dresses Of soft striped,
basket woven or wool natte cloths, in large
stripes of indefinite shading, or subdued
colors. Cheeks are found in all fabrics,
wool, silk, cotton, black and white, brown
and white, blue and white, but small and
modest though clear. The hats for tlie
half season, just before we take to absolute
ly spring array, are white lelts, with color
ed velvet lace trimming, worn with a
crape or lace veil of the same shade, folded
about tlie head, closely, as a slight protec
tion against neuralgia while March winds
threaten. They will soon be laid aside for
the soft chip hats ot every shade of tinted-
white, pc -white,- pink-white, cream

exact tint of the straw hat. Girls will be

The Union League Club, which repre
sents the unofficial end of the" .Republican
party or this city, has felt impelled to ex
press' Itself. It has resolved tbatio man
should bejiiominated wlio Is noentireIy
free from eomplioations that.Awould lead
him in that dlilou. This is somewhat
ambiguous, but tliere can be ho donbt as to
its meaning. It is a dig at Grant and at
Koseoe Cotiklin, and protest w-wtast the
interference ot custom house and Post
office employees in polities. It is a demand
for a throwing over board of "the profes
sional politicians, and a call fjr new men
to come to tlie front, men not involved in
entangling alliances, or mixed in any way
with what is known as "management."
Belknap lias played Hie dickens with tlie
regulars. ' The people are not in the humor
to be tooled witli just now, and the notion
of tlie Union League Club is significant.
The members, do not propose to quit tlie
party, but tliey Jo propose to clean it.
Tliey will liave none but clean men. The
third term Idea,, which had, at one time,
some strength here, Is as dead as a smelt.
Bight or wioog, there Is a terrible feeling
ot distrust of tlie old stagers, and a desire
tor new men. The country will do what
is did in 1851, when Sliermatt, Colfax.
Burlingame, ami the now old lenders of
the Republican jiarry came to tlie surface.,
That Congress was made up almost entire
ly ot new men, ami so will tlie iiext; be.
lie will be a very clean man who survives
the impending storm. Belknap, Schenck,
and the other convicted as well as suspected
ones, have done tlie young aspirants of tlie
country an immense service. .

down with folded hands, and is eating it
self up. Tliere is no business whatever

It is nut the best policy in the world,
when searching tor good, competent
men to fill county offices ot profit and
trust, to select men who have been
working for montlis and years, it may
be, for the position ; because, during the
time they have been thus engaged, they
may have expended a great deal ot
money to advance their interests, and
srmetimcs, after they have secured the
desire of their hearts, they feel it in
cumbent upon them to "get even," a
they term it, with the people for these
The man who is known as a skillful
'wire-puller," who is full ot promises
and soft words, is not the man in all
cases to select for high official position,
as generally speaking, he is selfish to a
degree, and will promise anything and
go to any lengths to secure his "object.-
He is very liable to forget to-day what
he promised yesterday; and after his
object is secured, will laugh to scorn
any proposition looking to the fulfill
ment ot his promises.?. - -. ,

office to seek the; man,1 and not the
