We call the attention of the Abolition
press in Oregon to the following, from
he editorial columns of the New Yoik
Tribune of August 12th. They have an
imadverted upon us for taking the very
same view of the case which, the Tribune
takes. I)o they censure Greeley as they
have censured us? We give his very
J N.n writes us ia deprecation (we un
derstand) of a trial of Jefferson Davis for
treason before a civil tribunal, on the
.ground that all thoroughly loyal men
.already know him to be guilty, and so are
disqualified for jurymen; while the other
uwrt would certainly acquit him, whereby
((he says) "all -would be overthrown.'"
We dissent at once from his assumptions
and from his deduction. The great legal
and constitutional principles at issue in
Ah is ease are to be ruled by the Court as
rfhey severally arise, not determined by
the verdict of the jury, who are impan

assumptions, what then ? If a prisoner
of State cannot be tried and convicted
according to law, what do you propose to
do with him ? Is he to be hung because
he cannot be convicted f Or would you
let him go? If our legal machinery is
not adapted to such a case, is it not our
business to adapt it ? What else would

We ought to -add that the average yearly
receipts of the weekly newspapers in Oregon,
range from $5,000 to $8,000. The great

of the Catholic Church and rgy, nd have

America, under the inHaeneeof Puritanism,
their aboriginal population has been pretty
effectually driven off and destroyed, and their

driven away by a party of discharged soldiers
And several of them beaten nearly to death.
The Detroit negroes" also celebrated the day,

: Oa the 31st ult.two negroes murdered a
woman at Evansville, Ind. The negroes
.were arrested and placed in jail, when the
people organized a mob, broke open the jail,
-took the murderers out, beat them almost to
death, and then hung them to lamp posts.

become proprietor and editor of the Suffolk
Democrat, a weekly eheet published at Hunt
isston, Lon? Island.
The following from the Old Guard
will apply to the party specified, as well
in Oregon as in New York or elsewhere.
We heartily endorse the. views of the
The Daily Courier, a paper claiming to
be Democratic, published in the city of
Huffalo, after quoting from the New York
Times the sentence iu the Ch'u igo plat
form which declared the attempt to save
the Union by war a " failure," says :
In this ronnivtion, we wisli to call atten
tion to the fact that this clanso in the Chica
go platfv.rm wa placed there by tho efforts
of a class of men, who. by their own confes
sion, cither remained away from the polls
or voted for Mr. Lincoln. Whatever of in
famy attaches to the declaration that the ef
fort to restore the Union by war had. after
an experiment of four years, proved " a
failure," is to be charged to the account of
the hirelings of the Administration who
procured the interpolation of this phrase.
Mendacious falsehood ! Shameless ca
lumniation of tho Chicago Democratic
Convention ! That resolution was put in
the platform because it was the sense of
the Convention ; if there were any who
dissented from it, their number was so
small that they did not venture to make
the least show of their dis.igreeusent.
The declaration that the attempt to save
the Union by war was a failure, was the
belief of every intelligent Domocrat in the
Convention; and it is still the belief of
every inttllujml Democrat in the United
States. Ihe war has not only destroyed
the Union, but it has destroyed the whole
system of government established by our
fathers. It has forced the Austrian sys
tem into the place of the voluntary "or
free system that constituted the Union.
Show us a man who dares to call h'uisclf
a Democrat (excepting the editor of the
Buffalo Courier) who believes that the
war has restored the Union ! Bring the
shallow-pa;cd th'ng before us, and let us
look at him ! Sir, do you call this a un
ion of free, sovereign, and co-equal States,
where one-half is held like a vassal un
der the point of the bayonet of the other
half? Tell us, oh, maudling dolt, is this
bloody, this Godless piece of despotic ma
chinery a Union of i$nrrtijn Sttiir?
Is this accursed system of Provost Mar
shals, of .Military Governors, of Provis
ional Governors, of suspended habeas cor
pus, of military trials, of arbitrary arrests,
the Union that was established by our
fathers ? lias it one resemblance to that
Union ? Is it any more like our old Un
ion than the relations between Russia
and Poland, or between Austriaand Hun
gary are like our old Union Tell us,
O! thou blockhead, thou tltiug daring to
call thyself a Democrat, what part of this
system, which the war has produced, be
long to the old Union. 1 onions to even
one feature of the old Union in this bloat
ed and abominable despotism ! No, you
cannot. Ihen the war has not restored
the Union. This wa3 true when the De
mocracy, in its General Convention at
Chicago, declared it. It is true now ; it
will be true eternally. The war is ended,
bt the Union is not restored. Those
delicate ami beautiful, and reciprocal re
lations between coequal States, which
constituted the Union, ere not restored.
That splendid system of free government
ilcstroared. Whether it can be brongh
back agajin is a problem of the future.
Confiscations, military trials, and all the
other abhorred severity now in operation.
will never do the work. They may settle i
down and fasten upon the whole country
the Austrian system of consolidated pow
er, but they ean never restore the Union,
The work of restoration is that of jus
tice, conciliation and kindness. Union is
secessarily xhinbiry. Indeed there are
but two kinds of government in the world
he one of forte, the other of consent.
Ours was the government -''of conxt nt. The
war has made it one of force. The force
?sttm, taking the name of Republican
Govern fnent. 13 the meanest and most ly
ing despotism on earth ; and on this de
tested spot the war has landed us. The
man who calls this monster birth of the war,
this brutal, rowdy despotism, the Union,
must be a fool or a knave. We have no
softer name for him." During every month
of the war we were rushing precisely in
an opposite direction from Union. We
were breaking up Union, because we were
destroying eminent and establishingy"yrre.
Oh, this was the most fatal kind of disun
ion ! It was not secession, it was destruc
tion. The one left the principle of union
alive the other til's It. Now that the
war ia over, the Union is so far from be
ing saved that we are quarreling among
ourselves about the best means of "recon
structing" it. Did not the Chicago Con
vention say well that the war had failed
to restore the Union f Every hour the
war lasted rendered reconstruction more
difficult. If a thousandth part of the jus
tice and kindness which reconstruction
will require, had been employed by the
Republican party when it cam into pow
er, there never would ha v been any
secession, except of South Carolina,
and she might have been brought back
without the shedding of a drop of blood.
But no ; such a happy conclusion was not
desired by the party in power. The la
mented Senator Douglas thundered at the
Abolitloa ,conspiratoV in tke Senate,
'You wat war' They gyt jt. And ;
O, sham! Low many Democrats, aposta
tizing from every principle of Democracy,
helped them o what they wanted ! Had ;
the Democracy let the Abolitionists fight!
their own battle, these could have been
no war, and the Union would really have
been preserved. TJje same spirit of com
promise and fraternity which established
the Union" in the first place, and saved it
several severe trials, would have saved it
this time. Apostt Democrats have been
the rigtt hand of Abolitionism. And
now some of these apostates accuse the
true Dieworats, who refused to be Lin
cohiizei, of being " hirelings of his Ad
ministration !" Who, in God's name, but
the ' War Democrat," was the "hireling of
the Administration V Who else has been
the tool of Abolition ? If these apostates
will now come back to the principles of
Democracy, which they so ingloriously
deserted, we have been willing to be silent
about their great erime. But how should
we treat this assertion which accuses the
reat body of Democrats in the Chicago
Convention of being "hirelings of the Ad
ministration ?" More than two-thirds of
the . delegates of that Conveatioa were
Peace Dnmerrects. Tere was a compro
mise "between the majority and the minor
ity on he platform and the candidate
the majority accepting what they under
stood s peace platform, and yielded to
the minority the candidate on the mistak
en idea of availability. The compromise
turned out nn unfortunate one, as he car
ried, certainly, ons, and probably tiro, less
States than either of tho Governor Sey
mours would have carried. The whole
truth is, that the minority played a trick
upon the majority, by assuring them that
Gen. MeClellan would accept the nomi
nation on the platform of the party. They
knew better and it was no part of their
plan that he should accept the platform,
lie repudiated that part which was most
vital to the majority of the Convention.
So wo were forced into the campaign with
the platform looking one way and the
candidate iho other, with an obliquity of
vision which was, as we have somewhere
else said, more than a match for 0o face
of Butler, surname.! '-the beast." It was
an awful figure for a great political party
to cut before tho world.
The whole responsibility of this great
shame was with those who were the sup
porters of the Abolition war. Th$ were
the supporters of Lincoln's Administra
tion, for the war was his Administration ;
and if anylody were his " hirelings " they
wore in this " War Democracy." We
repeat, that it has not been our policy,
since the end of the war, to remind these
apostates of their groat sins; but the con
dition of our silence is that they shall re
spect themselves sufficiently to be still
about the past. Kspecially, when an edi
tor talks aliout the " infamy " of that jor
tion of the Chicago platform which re
flected the most earnest sentiments of tho
virtuous majority of the convention, we
are bound to rebuke the insolent false
hood. Hotter that such men learn some
thing of the principles of Democracy, or
give up trying to edit Democratic news
papers. Better that those who are the
mere tools of the Abolition revolution or
the puling panders to the new born des
potism, should learn better morals and
better manners than to accuse the brave
and incorruptible men who have sttxid up
like a fjret of oaks against the bloody
storm, of being ' hirelings " of an Ad
ministration which they have opposed
with a pluck anJ virtue that render them
the only worthy descendants of our Rev
olutionary lathers remaining in our coun
try. There are a few pupers called Dem
ocratic which are edited either by men
who never knew what Democracy was, or
who are apostates from it, and they are
s'mply the organs of ignorance, discontent
and slander. Thry are the "hireling."
If there is infamy" anywhere, it is 011
their heads. Thg are " interpositions"
in the Democratic party. Hiey are a
shame, not only to the Democracy, but to
their country. The Abolitionists are
professional revolutionists, professional
disunioaists. We know where they are.
j iiere is no cueai aooui u; mil tnese
stealthy Democrats, who aru doing the
-top rork of Abolitionism in the name. of
Democracy, what are they? If they had
lived in tho time of the Son of Man. their
name would hare been Judas, Their
name is tijwatafe now.
An Extra Session.
By advertisement, officially made in
in this number, it will be seen that Gov
Gibbs has determined to call an Kxtra
Session of the State Legislature, to con

We have not time to comment upon the
subject this week, but shall do so in our
Hannibal Hamliu on the "?laln!
A Portland (Me.) paper has the follow
The Bangor JeTcrsonian in two or the con
secutive issues, has informed the public thot
"Maj. Charles Hamlin' lias beeu promoted
for meritorious service during the war. It
has not deigned to adise the public what
these services were, but so fur as we are in
formed they consist in having lived luxuri
ously in Washington during about the en
tire war, in what the soldiers term a "soft
plare,"' securely beyond the reeh of bullets,
and drawing a comfortable stipend of three
thousand three hundred dollars p?r annum
from Uncle Sam.
The other son of the ex-Viee-Prcsident has
had about as hard a time as the Major, down
about New Orleans, where, wjth the rank
and pay of 'a Brigadier General, about $4,
500 per annum, he has managed to live very
elegantly, leisurely and securely.
The ex- Vice, President's brother has bacn
kept, since March, loJ, in a mere sinecure
at 4,000 per annum, paid in gold, and his
son has been foisted into the medical staff of
the regular army, with the rank and com
fortable pay of Lieutenant Colonel. Pay,
$3,G00 per anuum.
In addition to all these positions of the
" family," the gentleman, who a few months
siuc.e became Mr. Hamlin's son-in-law, was
at once made a Paynfaster at 3,2W per an

And if today the cx-Yice President has a
brother, son, son-in-law or nephew, who is
not quartered on the Government, at 3. vecy

Shamefcl. The Washington Union says : i
The funeral expe.ises of Mr. Lincoln have
never been paid for. Mechanics, and other
business men, complain sadly about the 11011- '
payment of the bills. At the time of the
solemn ceremonies, the Secretary of the In
terior gave orders to spare no expenses in
getting up the funeral. This was all very
well ; but why does not the Secretary attend
to the paying of the bills ? It's disgraceful,
to say the least.
An-other Race. Norfolk, Lodi and Pilot
will run over the Ocean Race Course, San
Francisco, in December next-r-mile heats,
three in five. These horsps arp rpnowned
for speed, and an exciting race is looked for.
The unrivaljed achievement of Norfolk on
the turf, and the great speed and bottom of
Lodi and P.lot, are bound to make thin race
onp f the most interesting on record. Jackr
Foot Race. A foot race of five miles' dis
tance was run, July 20th, at Chicago, for a
purse of $1000, between the well known In
dian Deerfoot and two others named Stevens
and Smith. Smith was beaten early in the
race, but Deerfoot and Stevens contended for
the prize with great determination, and af
ter running side by side for nearly half a
mile they made a dead heat of it making
the five miles'in 27 minutes 9 seconds.

The Mate Fair.
Wo attended the State Fair during three
daysof the week from Tuesday, the open
ing day, until Thursday evening. Yes
terday was the day fixed for the closing
scenes. So far as weather was concerned
a more propitious time was never had for
holding a State Fair. Fine, clear, warm
davs, and cool nights continued through
out. The attendance was large, though
not equal to that nt the Fairs held in some
former years. Yet it cannot.be said that
the Fair was a success in the proper light.
There wero a great many people present,
a largo number of vehicles of every de
scription to be seen upon the ground ;
there were numerous shows to entice the
spectators, plenty of refreshment stands
to provide for the hungry and thirsty who
gathered there ; but there was not enough
of what people had a right to expect at a

fine and good horses racers, roadsters,
or of all work, spans, matched pairs, colts,
yearlings, and of every kind if we ex
cept these, we repeat, the Fair was al
most a humbug. In the Pavilion build
ing the display of grains, fruits, vegeta
bles, butter, honey, etc., w;is really fthabby.
and the Mechauical department was very
little better attended to. In the Ladies
department were some very superior,
beautiful, and useful articles paintings,
sketchings and drawings, of fancy and
ain sewing, of embroidery and other va
rieties of needle work ; but the number of
articles exhibited was toofuwfor the occa
sion. In fact more than half the shelves
in the Pavilion were bare.
Of stock, other than horses, the display
was very scant. There were some very
superior sheep, French and Spanish me
rinos, graded -beep, Southdowns and
Coteswolds. Of cattle and swiuo there
were few on exhibition.
But we have not space at this late hour
to enter more fully into a notice of the
Fair. In the next issue we shall devote
more attention to the subject. As a mat
ter of news which will gratify many of our
county readers, and farmers all over the
State, we will mention that at the Annual
elect ion. Jas. II. Douthitof Linn was cho
