ALBANY, OHEGOX, MAliCII 2, 1S77.
f The -commission decided, without a
dissenting voice, that CromVs vote
honld be thrown out, as not having
the faintest show of legality, and then
having decided by a vote of eight to
seven that Oregon's three votes should
bo counted for Hayes and Wheeler,
just as the people intended, and th:s
decision having been confirmed by the
Senate, the two Houses met once more
in joint convention on the 27 th and
proceeded to count the Presidential vote,
Pennsylvania, being next in order, was
-called, and objections made on the
. ground of ineligibility ot one or more
electors, the Senate retired. Neither
IIouso sustaining the objections, the
two Houses again convened in joiDi ses
sion, when Pennsylvania's twenty-nine
votes were counted for Hayes and
Wheeler. Next came Rhode Island,
objected to on same ground as Penn
sylvania ; objection voted, down by both
Houses, and vote counted for Hayes
ami Wheeler. South Carol'u.a came
next, was objected to, when the IIouj
Adionrned until 10 o'clock a. m. of
Wednesday. There are seven States
yet to be counted. Of the vote so far
as counted Hayes and Wheeler has 153
Tilden and Hendricks 138. Add the
voles of South Carolina, 8, West Vir
ginia, 5, Wisconsin, 10, to Hayes and
Wheeler's count, and we have a total
ot 175, which elect, being a majority
of the electoral votes. That the seven
ty t r eighty hoodlums in Congress will
do all in their ower to retard the
counting of the vote until after the 4lh
of3Iarch, there is no doubt, but it is
hoped that the respectable members of
the Democratic party will be able in,
conjunction with the Republican party,
io finish up the count and declare the
election of Hayes and Wheeler to
day. It this ia found to be impossible,
then the President of the Senate, with
or without the House in' attendance,
will finish up the count to-morrow
(Saturday, March 3d) morning, when
Hayes and Wheeler w ill be declared
the choice of the people. In the latter
event President Hayes will take the
oath of office at the white House, ad
ministered by Chief Justice Waitc, on
ijhc 4lb hist., when he will at once on
er upon lus dunes as chiet Executive
f this Nation. Rah !
On the 28th, in joint session, "Rhode
Island, South Carolina, Tennessee and
Texas were counted, when they divid

remains but four States to count, and
they were probably counted yesterday.
THE N. 1
TIMES ON PARTISAN
SHIP. In a late editorial the A Y. Times
goes for the Democratic journals who
jhave been prating about the partisan
ship of the Republican members of the
electoral commission. It says: In
this decision the partisanship is all on
the Democratic side, and the law and
iacts with the Republicans. That the
three electoral votes of Oregon wee le
gally cast for Hayes and justice, a "way
faring man though a fool,' can appre
ciate ; and it may safely be left with the
people to judge of the impartiality Of
the seven Democrats wbo insisted only
two of these votes should be counted.
It was a very cheap display of virtue to
, Tefuse to recognize tbe vote of Cronin.
It was a very discreditable display of
partisanship to hold the Grover conspi
racy had succeeded in cheating the
State out of one electoral vote and
counting it out of its choice for Presi
dent. Here's the way tbe Cheyenne Lead
er announces the decision of the electo
ral committee on the vote ot Louisiana :
. VAnd the cock crew thrice, and Samuel
went out and wept bitterly. Her 8

Wheeler, Regardless of wails from Til
den the squealer, The Republican ship
saileth bravely on, And will ride the
breaker of Oregon, To unload Hayes
at the White IIouso dock, While De
mocracy dies from the awful shock."
The Des Moines -Register doesn't
care to arguo the case, but it looks at
the matter in this way : "Illinois re
tires the Union General, John A. Lo
gan, frcm the United States Senate, one
day, and the Georgians advance the
rebel General, Ren Hill, the defender
of Andei'souville, to the same body, the

The excitement relative to the Silver

Prof. Hurley who has spent the winter
there, making assays of the mud, says
some ot the assays made by him indi
cated as high as $2,030 per ton. A
Mrs. Davis, residing in the vicinity, re
cently picked up near oue of the mud
springs a sapphire valued at about $1,
500. Others are reported as having
found valuable pebbles, and it is be
lieved that diamonds in paying quanti
ties, will yet be found in that section !
The coming season promises to be one
of p-reat excitement in mining circles.
OUR NEXT PRESIDENT.
Our next President, Rutherford B.
Hayes, started the first of the weeck
for the White House at Washing
ton, where he will "keep house"
for the next four years. Every
where along the route he was being
greeted enthusiastically, by vast crowds
ot people, who, especially since the No
vember election, have learned to love
and esteem him lor his princely bearing
during these trying times. He was ex
pected to arrive in Washington yester
day or to-day.
MAD AS A MARCH HARE!
Immediately after the announcement
that the electoral commission had justly
and righteously decided to count Ore
gon's vote for Hayes, the Standard
man slopped clean over in his abuse of
the commission ami the Republican
party generally. AVe were a little sur
prised at this ebullition of temper from
the new editor, this sudden change in
the "style and language used by the gen
tleman from Georgia. It's all plain
enough now. According to the States
man this new editor was imported to
Oregon all for the purpose of being ap
pointed U. S. District Attorney, to serve
during Tilden's term as President !
And when it was announced that the
Oregon decision settled tbe Presidential
question in favor of Hayes, and the new
inkslinger saw his office and occupation
both departing, he doubtless felt like he
had been most cruelly sold, and put in
his "bttle bed" without any kiyer!
The leader of the ballot-box stuffers
at the Cincinnati (Ohio) election last
October is said to have been Harry
McCoy, chairman of the Maryland ex
ecutive committee and one of the lead
ing Democrats of the State. He left
Baltimore early in October in charge of
a large gang of experienced ballot-box
stuffers and repeaters, whom he divided
between Cincinna ti and Indianopolis,
and brought them back after tltey bad
done the work. McCoy was on the
slate for Collector of Customs or Naval
Officer at the port of Baltimore, in the
event of Tilden's election. After all
his rascality ho won't get either office,
we are happy to iy. 'And how mean
and contemptible these fellows of the
Democratic pursuasion even here in Or
egon must feel, when they consider the
amount ot dirty work they have done
and now they are not eveu to bo ap
pointed Postal Agents !
: . ... '
The Tribunes Washington special
says that Sunday's Herald, tbe Demo
cratic organ, has a long article on Til
den, written because many of Tilden's
friends have already nominated him for
1S80. The article attributes all the
disasters of the campaign to Tilden
himself, and continues denouncing the
method of the campaign, the Liberty
street bureau, and general incompetency
of Hewitt & Co., and says Oregon tele
grams, had they gone to and from the
residence of Gov. Hayes, they would
have been denounced by every Demo
crat in and out of Congress as the acme
of j)olitical rascality. The article thpn
closes as follows: And after such ig
nominious and disastrousexperience as
this, we are asked to train under Tilduu
in 180. J
When the matter of the reception or
rejection ot the Cronin vote in the Elec
toral College came up for action before
the electoral commission, the vote for
rejection was unanimous. Not a sin
gle member of that commission dared to
place himself on record as endorsing the
villainy of Tilden, G rover, Chad wick
and Cronin. And Grover stands to
day condemned by the highest authori
ty in the land as a base knave, or so
besotted in ignorance as to bo unable to
intelligently construe a plain provision
of the Constitution ! And it does not
make any difference which horn of the
dilema Mr. Grover takes, whether lie
acknowledges his rascality, or bases his
action in the Cronin matter on ignor
ance, in either case he is politically
damned by every honest roan in the
Nation. And for such a man to claim
a seat in the United States Senate
shows, to say the least, the possession
ot immeasurable cheek.
WHITE LEAGUERS AGAIN.
The Tribunes New Orleans special
says: There are increasing indications
of approaching disturbances. Unusual
activity is noticed in the White League
circles. Squads of men march about
the streets after dark, generally unarm
ed, to outward appearances. To-day
there appeared an armed body of White
Leaguers from Texas. They intend, or
intended to take the State House next
Sunday, during interregnum in the na
tional government. If, however, the
Senate elects Morton President, this
scheme will be less favorably regarded.
Wilmar and I 'aimer represent very few

nearly every colored church here is
crowded nightly, meetings being held
to pray God for the successful installa
