STATE RIGHTS DEMOCRAT.
ITt RDAY, DECF.MBElt O, !.
THIS GOVLltXOIt'N nVJiKUl
We havo not spaco in this issuo to pub
linh tli Message of Governor Gills, sent
o the Special session of the legislative
Assembly, oa tho opening day, Dee. 5th,
as yre rvceited a copy too lata for that
purpose. At this time we cau do no more
than to giro out readers a cursory re
tisw of it.
The Message start out with a eort of
eehoolboy diatribe against slavery, in the
first part of which the Governor tells the
Legislative Assembly that his principal
abject in calUajj them together is to r
Oiamsnd them ; to adopt the proposed
amendment to the Federal Constitution
for the total abolition of slavery. From
(his, to show them why they ought to do
it, he quotes from De Tocquevllle, Lord
Falmerston. and Secretary Seward, and
pervert the language of Thoa. Jefferson,
to demonstrate the Bin, the curse, aud the
horror of slavery, lie fails to remark
that Washington and the patriot sages of
the Revolutionary period countenanced
and sustained it j that John Adams and
John Qnincy Adams both recognised and
supported it; that the Federal Constitu
tion guarantees it, and that the Supreme
Court of the United States has tiiue and
again decided the right of masters to hold
slaves. But the Governor evidently re
quired - a subject upon which to spread
himself, and he has pressed slavery into
that service most excruciatingly. II is
composition" upon it is quite as good as
any usually heard at exhibitions in Puri
I Front slavery the Message jumps to
Suffrage," and here, while the Governor
is wordy, it cannot be said that he is not
absolutely wretched. II is arguments are
the basest of sophistries, and are even
worse in sentiment than contemptible iu
reasoning. Ilia purpose is apparent -it
is to pave the way for the eoaUnaatioa of
the Abolition party of Oregon in power
by any and all means ; and to do this, even
in the face of a positive popular majority
against it, he has recourse to a Registry
law. But we speak of the" BUI introduced
for this purpose elsewhere, and will only
say here that, in recommending the mea
sure Lo docs, Gov. Gibhs virtually violates
the oath he has taken aa Chief Magistrate
to support and defend the Constitution of
. Oregon. Some may think these are harsh
and. hasty words. They are neither but
Tally merited on the one hand, and delib
erately penned oa the other. . The sin
" rests with Gov. Gibbs,ia committing bini-
' self as he does we simply in fit terms and
. as mildly as the circumstances will admit
. characterise his act. f In our next issue
shall attempt to morexlearly and com
; pletcly illustrate our position. SuEce it
' here to remark that the Message labors to
-manufacture reasons why the . iniquitous
Bill already introduced ought to be pass
- el, and that the reasonings arc as tile as
- th Bill is abominable.
- He suggests that the division line be-
- ' tween the counties of Jackson and Wasco
-be so drawn as to bring the Klamath
Lake country into the former county.
Next, he refers to the Draconian Code
and suggests a more specific definition to
the class cf offences included ia the intol-
f eraat Sxmday fewv ; He evidently talks for

Reporter of Not. 25th did not reach us
until Monday last, but we hail it with a
hearty welcome, late as the.mails brought
it. In it is the introductory of iu new
editor, Mr. Frauk R. Stuart, and he
gives forth the earnest of sterling metal.
t is Democracy that he utters not the
whited semblance of it, and we rejoice at
the accession of so worthy a co-laborer in
the broad, fruitful field which the Demo
crats of Oregon are sure to handsomely
harvest next June. Wo are doubly glad
to know that the Reporter will be main
tained in its sphere of usefulness, and
that our party brethren in Southern Ore
gon will be so fitly and ably represented
through its columns. Hero is a key note
taken from Mr. Stuart's Introductory :
We shall exert oursclros te the extent of
our ability to rcist the effort now being made
by some of the leauung firojeise lctnocrftts,
ia Oregon and elsewhere, to wean the De
mocracy from its true allegiance, and trans
fer it to the support of Andrew Johnson- an
apostate . Temoerat and a time-server and
urns mace it me tooiot mumiuaiamumn ;

true rcpuLlietfiiUui, and, if successful will
surely result in the dismemberment ot our
party, ana tnus aeler uie nope or peaoe and
security to our dutracted country.
We are especially rejoiced at this dis
tinct, manly, unequivocal avowal, because
of a sentence which appeared in the Val
edictory of the late editor, with reference
to "Johnson Democracy." 2Tow,woknow
just where tho Reporter stands. A right
hearty welcome to" its editor, and high sue
cess to his brave Democratic organ.

Oh, most illustrious General, you do us

A ItxvxxKABUE Thxft.- Some unscrupu

blankets, the bed, bedding, and cooking
utensils, from the small-pox Hospital at
Dalles City. ; , The fellows, if aware of the
character of the hospital, would steal Pan

get the blankets of some miserable devil
who had the itch, and retain them for their
own use. - .

caught the next day at Aurora,, and is now
in the jail at Salem, to await trial.

Tho brief time tho copy of the Rill has
becu in our pos-scssion pm-luilcs ui from
reviewing its atrocious features iim fully
as we dcrfiro. It provides for tho appoint
ment of a Reginter to every voting pro
ciuct, by the County CourU, and tlies-e
Registers aro to sit to receive the names
ofrotcrs for thirty days, the cloning day
oi i no silting to ou inirty uays prior to
At . i . .1 . 1 .
the day of election. Theso provision
place it iu the power of the County J Uvlge
to appoiut any tool of their owu as KcgU-j
tcrs, and work the grevious wrong uf du
fruuehisiug cvyry voter who may not be
able to call at the Registry ufliee during
the allotted thirty days. A bona fide
voter, who tuay bo a resident of uny rivcu
precinct, if absent during thec thirty
days, or sick, or from any eauo is unable
to atteud during that period at the Reg
istry ofliw, cannot vote, even though he
were to return, or was enabled to call for
tho registry uf his name, ou tho tweuty
uiuth day preccdicg tho eleetiou, or ou
any subsequent day.
Again, voters who are, under the Con-
tution and present law regulating elec
tions, entitled to vote for State and Dis
trict officers out of their own precinct, if
through busiucas or other causes, absent
from their place of reaidenco ou the day
of election, aro disfranchised. To bo al
lowed tho right to vote a citizen mut not
ouly have been a resident of his precinct
the constitutional and lawful time, but he
must have his name on tho registry book
from sixty to thirty days before tho elec
tion j and after this registering of his
name he must take tho iu famous oath pre
scribed in this Bill, at the polls, or have
his vote rejected.
A startling feature of this Bill is that
it surrenders entirely to the discretion or
option of tho Registers, tho right to re
cord or reject the name of tho applicant,
and, in case of tho refusal of any Register
to record the name of an applicant, the
latter has no appeal from his decision, no
recourse against the officer for tho gricv.
ous outrage upon his highest right as a
citiren. The Register's authority is su
preme and Sual ; ho can record or reject
the nsmo of a known voter at his pleas
ure, will or caprice, and yet go entiiely
unpunished for tho high-haudod tyranny
which destroys tho citixcu's right of sul
frage. The officer is invested with the
utmost power, without limit whatever,
and yet is relieved from responsibility iu
any shape for the faithful performance of
his duty. Thcro cannot bo found a par
allel for this monstrous provision on the
statute books of any State in the Republic
It is borrowed from absolutism, and is
most destructive iu its operation.
Again, it is required of every voter
that he shall, before being permitted to
vote, take the infamous oath prescribed.
And after he docs this, it is left apparent
ly, to the option or caprice of the Election
Judges whether or not his vote shall be
received. The Bill assumes for its chief
object the security of the election against
the Totes of persons lately from the "re
bellious" or " disloyal" States, who par
ticipated in or sympathized with " the re
bellion." . If this were really the object of
its framers, why did they not confine the
prescription of tho oath, or the latter por
tion of it, exclusively to emigrants f They
have not done this ; but, on tho contrary.
compel the citizen who has resided in Ore
gon for twenty years steadily to take the
full oath equally with tho " rebel" lately
came from a " rebellious" State.
But there is a latent poison in the oath
which is cunningly directed against the
old Democratic voters of Oregon in order
that they may be disfranchised. It is
charged by the Abolitionists that there is,
or has been, a "secret organization" of
Democrats in this State, which is or was
" treasonable,'! and it is against any and
all who may belong or who did belong to
that organization, one especial clauso in
the oath is directed. We would gladly
have that clause strictly and justly ad
ministered, for if it be, every member
of the treasonable and damnable Loyal
League and nearly every Abolitionist in
Oregon has been or is a member of it
would be inhibited from voting. But the
rule will not be justly applied." It wil
be directed only against Democrats. Thus,
if a Democratic citizen presents himself
before the Register of his precinct for the
purpose of having his name registered
that officer is permitted to ask , him what
ever questions be pleases, without gtint or
limit, and if it shall appear that the citi
zen has ever belonged to any " secret or
ganization,", no matter how purely patri
otic its object, or declines to answer that
question, either the Register then refuses
to record his name,-or, if he ; does record
it, the Judges on the day of election wil
refuse to receire his vote. Xefc a Loya
Leaguer, whose secret organization oath
was compound treason against both the
Federal and State Constitutions, is ncith-
jer questioned on that score nor refused
j his vote because of his membership
i Again, the Bill provides that any rebel
!r rebel ryinpnthizor who has availed him
lull of the President's Amnesty, hnll not
bo required to take tho oath, while it is
ixui lcd of the old citizen of tho. State who
jlmv continuously resided hero lor years.
Tho lOftt to tho tStato for practically
carrying out tho operations uf this Bill is
barely Muted -the Registers aro to re
ceive a compensation oi twenty-live cents
for one h psuio registered. There rnut
bo added to this (ho cost of olfteo rent for
eai-h Register, for thirty days, and inci
dental expenses, which will surely increase
the sum total to full twenty or twenty-five
thoiifuuddollurs fr every general e loot ion.
Tho Rill is iu fact a declaration of war
or servitude, to ojerate only against Dem
ocrats. The Abolitiouists are well aware
that Orcgou is now undoubtedly Demo
cratic! U sentiuicut that the next State
election will result in a Democratic tri
umph, if souio arbitrary, unconstitutional,
and coercive measures, aro not adopted t-:
prevent pueh a conclusion. This Bill is
the engine by which they hope to con
tinue the power to themselves, to secure
the success ol their ticket. Lot Democrats
now spply themselves to a full considera
tion of the political situation. There is
no need of hasty or precipitate action, but
there is every need for complete orgaui
tion, wis and calm deliberation, and, to
follow these, a firm, united, resolute ac-
tiou at the critical moment. Tho Bill is
in every sense an atrocious aud infamous
ono. ihe oath is akiu to that which a
liighwaytnau or an assashin might exact,
and is worthy no better consideration.
Our party brethren, wo feel perfectly con
scious, will be fully able to meet the great
emergency which tho passago of tho Bill
will devolve upon them, and for that good
time let us all agree to patiently wait. We
aro numerically strongest. Wo should
nil remember tho old fabh of tho father
and his sons with tho bundlo of rods.

Hopelessly broken and our cause destroyed.
