Ihe fact that the Democratic party in
Oregon will triumph at the State election
next Jane, is so manifest already' that
the "Aholitloa leaders are more exercised
in the matter of arranging affairs in their
hopeful districts than in preparing for the
State campaign. The general leaders
those who have out-grown county and dis
trict aspirations find themselves sudden
ly left with very little backing from their
past local followers, who are, in the Abo
lition or doubtful localities, very busy in
setting the traps for their own especial
benefit. These smaller fry political wire
pullers see no hopo for themselves save
in the county offices, and consequently
, they do not propose to waste their time
r strategy in bolstering up aspirants for
State offices who arc, if successful in ob
taining nominations in the Abolition State
Convention,,, certain to be defeated by
their competitors. Neither the big nor
little leaders of the Opposition can afford
to yield their services to the dear people
"without reward, by office or otherwise,
rod if there are to be no spoils there can
be expected no enthusiastic " loyalty" or
icalous : Unionism."
The big leaders, like the swimmer with
corks, got beyond their depth before they
4 calculated what they would do were their
floats to be taken from them- Too late,
now they discover their imprudence.

the 'very lowest, to the office of Secretary
;-cf State. Having made this lofty flight
, St would be a mortification next to death
' almost, to have tho bladder of their am
- bitjon rudely punctured, and to Ml, ex
hausted, flabbergasted, utterly empty,
. back into( their olU accustomed ' places
Yet, offices they must have, let the a-ccom-
panying mortification or shame le what
J it may. But here comes the difficulty
5 The very rabble which pushed up these
Tain-glorious leaders, and out of which
f they selected their strikers and blowers,
''Tiave now rushed into candidacy for the
v only places to which there is a mortal
hope of, election, and they will not give
way to the fallen, empty-handed, hungry
leaders. Thus their influence is not only
destroyed, but their future is a blank, so
far as State or county offico or spoils is
concerned. They have a poor show, too,
o become "wards of the Government"
':and to Bh'are the Federal spoils upon
' avhich they were for a time permitted to
1 .feast.
Determined however to keep 'up the
" forms, as Duke Humphrey did at the
' Union" fence the managers were ob
liged to put him down of Secretary of
State. This troublo was no sooner over
than another, arose in its stead. The
office of Slate Printer wat a bone of con
tention. Piltock was out of the ri;og.
The managers being principally Salem
men, as in duty and interest bound, de
cided every vexed issue in favor of Salem
men and Salem influences, save the Gub
ernatorial affair. Salem had to be- pla
cated again. The Statesman concern was
sickly. Huntington had drawn out, so
had Ben. Simpson, and Craig was left
pretty nearly alone in the ownership.
Without pap the thing would die. The
promise of office would be a sort of gal
vanic, temporary assistance. Candidacy
would answer the present purpose for
want of something better. Craig was
put on the slate for State Printer. The
Treasure, ship was tha Za'lj place to be
filled, and no; canie fresh trouble. Tha
manflger3 had promised it to 1. R. Moores,
whose claims for the Governor's chair had
been whittled down to the lowest place on
the ticket. Just here it occurred to the
managers that some consideration had to
be given to the status of the candidates
on doctrinal issues- So far there had
been selected no regular Negro Equality,
Negro Suffrage, Miscegenation candidate.
One of that kird must be had. Moores
would not answer the purpose. Finally,
Whitson of Salem, but formerly of Polk,
was thought of, and at the mention of his
name, off went Moores', and- on went
Whitson's. The ticket was completed,
and the managers adjourned.
It now remains to be seen how their
Central Committee, with irate Moores at
its head, will act, and what Bhall be done
in their. State Convention- The mana
gers proposes Convention, and not a Con-
Ifercnce, full of parsons, as they held last
year. The Committee may caH in the
clergy again, a3 the only means of saving
grace to the disappointed aspirants, and
to counteract the scheme of the managers.
Terminate how it will, however, it will
afford Democrats goodly sport. The De
mocFacy, conscious of their strength, cer
tain f victory, all united, harmonious,
zealous, active and enthusiastic, have
never been better prepared for a thor
ough, strong, vigorous canvass. They
are not seeking spoils, but arc battling
upon principle, and with the right men in
the right place, they intend to win the
Everybody is aware that there are no
friends of the laboring classes outside of
Nw England, save they be of -Puritan
stock. Massachusetts declares this to be
so, and who shall dare to question or deny
anything which Massachusetts says ? It
is treason to do so. The fact being estab
lished, then, that the New England -fac
tory lord3 are the only real friends of the
laboring man, suppose we glance at the
happy condition they imposeupon their
own poor operatives. A late Boston
Journal (loyal) says:

ri It was a cruel thing to place Hindsdale

of Salem. The latter gentleman is Speak-
cr of the House, Chairman of their State
Central Committee, and notwithstanding
all this, the managers, well knowing him
to be eager for Gubernatorial honors only,
parcelled out to hun ths Treasurerehip or

But as the manufacture of the ticket pro
gressed, other changes had to be made
Mixixa Colors. The blessed Puritans
ore fast preparing their children for the
beauties attendant upon Negro Equality.
They must greatly need that "strengthening
and beautifying element" in their offspring
which the Miscegenationists contend can
come only through the intermarriages of
whites and blacks. They have long labored
to accomplish their darling object, but hith
erto have not met with the success they
aspired to. Either the too-proud and lusty
darkies could discover no attraction or
"affinity " in tho wizened, apectiicled spin
sters of the Puritan race, or the wenches
felt themselves obliged to decline the tender
proposals of the lanky, slab-sided swains
who threw themselves at the feet of the
dusky charmers. Af'any rate there have
been very few marriages of the miscegena
tion style. The ingenious Puritans are not
at loss for resources howevert to acoompltsh
their dosires. They propose now to -iring
about miscegenation just as they have
brought about civil war, the slavery crusade
and the destruction of the old Union by
propagandisxn. They are establishing schools
all throajrh New England in which white
pupils and black are made to sit together
recite together, and play together-. Thus
negro boys and Yankee maidens, white lads
and darkey gals will become accustomed to
each other, and in maturer years will not
fail to mate one with the other. From this
blessed condition of present things will flow
the Millenium which all true Puritans hanker
to witacss before they die. How the scheme
will work may be conjectured frein report:
in the New England journals, of which
statement we find in the Providence (R. I
Bulletin will serve as a specimen. That
paper says that the excitement consequent
upon the introduction of colored scholars in
tho public schools is about over, not more
than five or six white children having been
withdrawn on that account. Surely it is
pity that a people who try bo hard to be no
groized cannot be changed into negroes
They really doscrve to be.
Owninq Up. Montgomery Blair was for
nearly four years a member of Mr. Lincoln'
Cabinet, as Postmaster Genera. Of course
no man could have had an equal opportunity
with him to know of the character of the
publications which passed through the mails
from information given by hia numerous
subordinates, secret agents "and spies. lie
some time ago openly admitted in a speech
that " the Republican party had employed a
swarm of hireling writers to misrepresent
the Southern people,, and to prejudice the
people of the North against the Democratic
party." Be it remembered this was done by
the party which professes to denounce the
doctrine that the end justifies the means.

It requires but a moment's thought to
appreciate how perfectly the " working
man's friends " these lordly factory own
ers must be. We all know they are the
men who have for years contributed with
lavish hand to break up that system' of
negro labor in the South, under which
the slaves were obliged to work almost
eight hours per day on plantations, or, at
the excess, in harvesting, picking or
planting seasons, twelve hours per day, at
generally healthful, strengthening labor.

clad, and abundantly provided for in
every needful manner. They were given

means ot earninsc it. iney were con
tented, cheerful, often joyous, for they
were not obliged to have a care for them
selves, in the matter of food and clothes
and a roof to shelter them. On the other
hand, the poor operative in a New Eng-
and factory must work from eleven to
fifteen hours per day within close, heated
walls, at an unhealthy employment, for a
mere pittance, upon which he can barely
provide home and food and clothes from
month to month. To continue in this
employment, he must vote any ticket his
employer dictates, be must attend the
Church he is directed to, and must be not
only a slave bodily but mentally also to
tils hard, unpitying master. And his
children are consigned to the same miser
able lot. Little girls and boys of from
nine to fourteen or fifteen . years have to
r through the same long round of
daily labor, for barely enough to miserably
clothe and scantily feed them. But they
ought to be happy--they are the employ

What blindness it is in people to ob
serve these things and not profit thereby.
The real purpose of the factory lords of
New Eagland and of her political fanatics
is, to subjugate the working classes en
tirely to their control. Their sympathy
for the negro is but a ruse to enable them
the betterto effect their designs against
the white laborers. Now that they have
forced a killing freedom upon the negroes
of the South, they do not exert their in
fluence to give the poor wretches homes
or employment among themselves, nor "to
benefit them in any way. No, they seek
instead to make the negro a public pauper

New England, until they can place a

which they will continue to make - the

whom their fathers first robbed and then
made war 'upon from vile disease, rum
and destitution. Bat all the while they
are subjugating to their will and profit,
and crushing out the spirit of the labor
ing whites. Not only those who labor in
their factories are oppressed and more
and more impoverished, but also those
who live from hand to mouth by their
daily labor in other Statesj for, by means
of the tariff, which New England Con
gressmen shape to afford a monopoly to
New England manufactures, the poor are

Two weeks ago a letter appeared in the
Salem Statesman from this personage,
filled only with blackguardism and lies
again st'ourself. The production needs no
contradiction at our hancbs barely a no
tice. It bears its own condemnation of
the writer rather than the person it assails
upon its own face. Decent and honest
people of every party will think that if a
Senator of the United States really be
lieved or knew" that a man had the char
acter Senator Nesmith charges upon U3, he
would be utterly wanting; in that dignity
and bearing which ought to characterize
a Senator, if he noticed the person at all;
that to reply to such a character would be
simplj getting down to his level. It is
tolerably well known that Senator Nes
mith and ourself were very intimate per
sonal friends up to the time he betrayed
the Democratic party for his present seat
in the Senate, when we broke off the re
lations which had before existed between
us. On his return from Washington in
1861, Senator Nesmith and ourself met in
a public room in Yreka j he came towards
us with hand extended in the usual friendly
way, to greet us, and addressed us in the
old familiar styled We declined the honor
of a renewal of tilat acquaintance. We

done, and we resolved from that moment,
when his perfidy and corruption were

Abolition counties and districts have been
converted to Democracy, and the chances are
most fair for -clear success in the States

years deserted from the army, was faith

now hesitate to lie, infamously and wan
tonly, to break down the character and
impair the influence of one who knows of
his perfidy, his treachery and corruption
and who means to legitimately use that
knowledge in endeavoring to prevent that
Senator from being re-elected to the high
place which he has so disgraced and dis
honored. It would be madness in us to
engage in the task of building-up for
Senator Nesmith a good or decent charac

anything better than a deserter, a traitor

which he has displayed as a Senator from

An Item. In the President's Message
there is a deal of specious plausible talk
about the freedom restored to the people of
the South. The fact is there has never been
so much painful suffering imposed upon
nearly that whole people as now, and ty the
direct action of President Johnson. He
nermits his Cabinet hutcher, Stanton, to
oppress, harrass, and outrage that unhappy
people in every way which a fiend incarnate
can invent. He allows his military com
manders .tcr plunder and wrong the people

them with the promise that their States shal
be permitted all their sovereign rights, and

mscr&sixo dead issues."
There is a class of party men who con
stantly croak that the people ought not to
longer discuss what they are pleased to term
" dead issues." From the drift of their re
marks it is inferable that by " dead issues "
they mean the Constitution as it was framed,
the doctrine of State Rights,- and, perhaps,
the Monroe doctrine. They say, rather than
jgue or contend for these " dead issues,"
let u 8 accept the present condition of things,
and prepare to meet the living issues of the
day. It would be uncharitable not to believe
that a large portion of the men who talk in
this wise are Christians, or believers in the
Holy Scriptures. Now, suppose an army of
Mahomedans or Pagans Bhouldlae able to
overrun the Christian world, and should then
demand of all within its power an acquies
ence in, and observance of the peculiar doc
trines or rites of either" Mahomedanism or
Paganism, would these men advise or con
sent to the demand ? , Or, suppose it should
be ordered by the Puritan Church that, in
the United States, such "dead issues" as
the Lord's Prayer or the Ten Command
ments should be no longer taught oroberv
od, would it be right to bow iu obedience to
the order? If the Constitution and the doc
trine of State Rights are " dead issues," we
should like to have one of the men who
think they are to inform us what worth there
is in any of tho " living issues," or, what
avail there can be in discussing them ? A
Russian subject might be permitted to dis
cuss the topic of his own banishment with
the Czar ; but how would that prevent the
Despot from immediately consigning him for
life to the mines of Siberia? Our "dead
issues1' are the real life and soul of our
State and individual liberties, and when we
relinquish them, or cease to battle for them
we let go all hold, and completely surrender
our freedom, our manhood, and all that a
citizen can feel a pride in, and submit to
become bound, abject, servile subjects.
When these great issues are dead, no true
freeman or patriot will wish to outlive them
in the land. - ' .

Got Knocked Down. From the Cincin
nati papers of Nor. 28th we learn that, on
the day before, the Hon. G. W. Julian,
Radical Member of Congress from Indiana,
was knocked down and severely cowhided at
the railroad station at Puchmond, in that
State, by Sol. Meredith, a " loyal man
Julian took his castigation meekly. He is
the fanatical wretch who lately made a
speech before the Indiana Legislature, in
which he clamored for the hanging of all the
prominent men of the South, and hoped for
a general massacre of that noble but unhap
py people. Of just such mettle as Julian
are nearly all of the fanatical blood-thirsty
gang. It hi a notable fact, by the way, that
while the loyal telegraph flashed across the
continent tho story of an assault on Val
landigham which did not take place, and
loses no opportunity to make known any idle
or real statement of the attacks upon Demo
crats by Abolitionists, it never tells of such
little " personal" affairs as this of Julian's
anions the " loyal " crowd. Tho reason
is obvious. -
More Philanthropy. We have another
instance of Abolition philanthropy. Here
it is :
A Washington letter to the New York
Herald says seventy-five coffins per week for
the last four weeks have been issued by the
Freedmen's Bureau in Washington, more
than half of them for children, and children
who have actually starved to death, or died
from destitution and want. j
Had these poor wretches been let alone in
the happy care of their Southern masters,
they would hart been alive, fat, hearty and
merry. Yankee philanthropy freed them ;
it jstole them or forced them from the old
plantation homes ; it brought them to Wash
ington and there left them to starve and
die. But who knows that it is not a Puritan
undertaker who has the contract for furnish
ing coffins for the dead freedmcn ? And who
don't know that it is more profitable to starve
and bury negroes than to feed and support
