the rich, of the weak aijuinst the stronir,
these annoyances frequently prevent him from de
voting that attention to his paper he wishes to five,
and often he finds him self so toruietred and per
plexed by business troubles that ho cannot prop
erly write Ttp his editorials. Yet the very men
who are delinquent in subscription wiil be the verv
ones to complain of ihe want of interest in the
paper at siieh times, and cry it down among their
neighbors. But ws need not comment further on
this matter here. We have made this rule t' jrov
4crn ns in the publication of this paper, and we are
determined to adhere to it. We an- aware that
tome will find fault with us for doin; so. If they
are friendly to oar enterprise and desire to see a
Found lemocrntic pap-. r succeed, we ask them to
forego their censure and believe ns n h(.j wc assure
them that on no uther basis ean the pscr be sus
tained. On the cash basis it eau be su.-taiued. and '
we intend to demonstrate this fact. We keep no
account books. Wh eia subscriber s nds or pays extraordinary condition of affairs brought
in the money he will be surely furnished with the j about durinr the term of Abolition mis

We imagine, however, those who are so fond
of quoting .Ponglaa on some themes, will not
coincide with him when he speaks about the

For our own part, however much we
think some one (or more) of the traitors
Mr. Douglas alluded to deserves death,
we would oppose his execution unless
the sentence should be passed upon the
Accused after fair trial and conviction by
the constitutional authorities. We would
not approve of the execution or other pun

prosperous, happy condition which
marked its rise and progress from the
hour of its birth down to the unhappy
moment of its surrender to fanaticism,
sectionalism and Puritan domination.
The Democracy of Oregon have their
full share of the great work in hand to
perform, and we rejoice to be able to say
that the Democracy of no other State in
the Union are better qualified, or in as
good condition, to successfully accomplish
it. In this State, since the time of trial
and trouhle came upon the land, the De
mocracy have stood firmly and faithfully
at the post of duty and to their imperish
able principles. There have been no di
visions in our party; there are none now.
We are united, harmonious, resolved,
and fully conscious of our strength, and
of our ability to carry the State iu the
State election next June. We acknowl
edge no man as leader to the extent that
he could weaken or distract our party by
Militarv CW, Xor. would we annrove.wrecusancyr treachery and we rejoice
or fail to denounce, the hanging of oneptherto feel and believe, that w e have
who had actually committed treason, if
he were put to death by a mob whether
military or popular in its composition.
We would uphold and obey the Constitu
tion and the law under every exigency.
And we would remind the Oregonian that
a " strong Government" ought always to
be a merciful one. It is the small cur,
not the great mastiff, which tears and.
tortures its victim. If our Government
cannot exist unless the blood of a few
leading rebels shall be spilled, it is too
weak and worthless to endure another day.
The savage ting of Dahomey observes
his customs," in the annual butchery
of thousands of powerless victims. Would
the Oregonian man have similar customs
in our country ? Our cotemporary ought
to define wherein he would decline t
icopy the example of the notorious Africa
monarch. It might puzzle readers of hi
paper to note the line of demarcation

with the indomitable, unflinching masses,
have under every allurement, against
Abolition proscription and malevolence,
faithfully adhered to principle, to duty
and right. We can well afford to trust
the men in future who have, in the past
four or five terrible years, fearlessly and
boldly maintajned their ground against all
the enticements offered, and all the per
secutions threatened to them. As for the
bone and sinew of the party, the honest,
fearless, devoted, patriotic thousands, who
constitute the file and body of our Demo
cratic organization, they stand the peers
of any in the Union in love And duty to
their country and their principles, and

far as honor bounds it, and not as a means
to deception or equivocation. Our tri
umph, to bring with it all the sweets and
honors and blessings of victory, should be
won honorably, with our full colors, dis
playing our true character, at the the
front, To practice policy in any other
way would be but to disgrace ourselves
and stain the pure escutcheon of Democ

the nature of things, differences of opin

party there ire no differences of belief.
These differences of opinion on mere
measures ought to be and ean be defi-
ofhis rivals. He is a malignant of the
most unscrupulous character, and sooner
than to see his competitors triumph,
would see the whole party defeated. The
leading Abolitionists of California know
this, and hence fear Conuess quite as
much as they hate him. They feel that
defeat threatens their party, and they
know the breach between the factions is
past all healing, and every day widening.
Their brethren in Oregon will in reason,
able time discover the same tiling. But.
if they really believe what they now as
sert that the division in their party iu
California is not to be feared why do
they labor so strenuously to make their
readers believe the contrary? However.
to show that the Abolition organs of Cali
fornia are a good deal exercised over the
matter, we give the following extracts
and paragraphs from some of the Anti-
